Wow, hard to believe that we are already on Episode 5! I joined the party late because I was busy doing The Renaissance Hunt 7 over in Second Life. There are over 70 wonderful gifts, so be sure to do the hunt before it ends September 30th! Here is my medieval roleplay avatar, Scarborough Fair, wearing the beautiful Lucia gown by Jezzixa Cazalet for Prism Designs, and the Santiago coin brooch by Jacon Cortes Designs, both of which are free Renaissance Hunt gifts:
Today we visited four Sansar experiences (I was only at the first three):
- Hootenanny, by Lillani
- VR Cult – The Events Hub, by Colpo Wexler
- Astro Port, by Mold3D
- Beginner Yoga Session for Headset Users, by Dutchie
The VR Cult experience is particularly captivating in a VR headset. As I mentioned earlier when I selected this experience as my Pick of the Day, VR Cult is currently hosting two exhibits of artwork by the Italian artists Matteo Guariso, a photographer, and Francesco Musante, a painter and illustrator.
Here’s Strawberry Singh’s live stream of our Atlas Hopping event:
And here is Draxtor Despres’ live stream:
It’s lonely being the first (and so far, only) fashion blogger in Sansar. (Now I know how the Maytag Repairman used to feel.)
As I said before, Sansar Studios is currently the only game in town when it comes to avatar fashion. The Western Outfit for Male Avatar is available for S$400 (about US$4.00 or CDN$5.06) on the Sansar Store.
Here’s a closeup of the Western Hat for Male Avatar, available for S$100 (about US$1.00 or CDN$1.27):
The hat comes with a beard attached, which is kind of annoying if you prefer your cowboys to be clean-shaven. As I mentioned before, you can tint the cowboy’s hair any colour you like (but unfortunately, you cannot tint the beard). Also, I noticed that the beard is hovering slightly off of the default avatar’s face on both sides of the face near the ears.
Here’s my avatar all dressed up in his new cowboy outfit, at the Sansar experience Hootenanny, by Lillani. (It is just me, or does he have a slight paunch?)
The detail on this outfit, like the other outfits that Sansar Studios is selling, is very good. Here’s a closeup of that belt buckle, also showing the stitching detail on the shirt and the blue jeans:
So saddle up, partner! Slap on your Stetson and head on down to Hootenanny and try your hand at horseshoes and other fun games.
