Join Us for the Under the Stars Formal Party in Sinespace Tomorrow, May 20th, 8-10 pm EST

The dance pavilion in Mystery Isle

I received the following message from Mimi Marie in Sinespace yesterday:

~ Under The Stars Formal Party ~

What: A Spring Garden Party will be held in the region of the beautiful Mystery Isle! Join us for dancing in the temple while watching the sunset and the stars glimmer like diamonds in the sky. Our music this evening will be a mix of String Quartet and Cello versions of popular rock songs presented by SpiralSilverstar, your DJ and host. Put a 1000 Watt smile on your avie and join us! Gold prizes and other gifts will be randomly given.

Where: Type Mystery Isle in your search tab

When: Wednesday May 20th, 2020 8:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. EST.

Dress: Semi Formal/Formal Attire encouraged but not required.

Side Note: Please support our amazing creators and designers and consider a purchase from the many beautiful products that might be suitable for this special event. Thank you!

For this event we ask that you come prepared with a “Snow Ball” to sell to Spiral for Gold prizes. This will simply make the gold give smoother and less time consuming. Go to Shop>Gestures>Snowball. Its is free to grab. If you need more information on how to do this transaction please contact me here or via in-world mail.

You can find the free snowball under the Gestures tab in the Sinespace Shop

The snowball gets around a quirk of Sinespace: avatars cannot give each other Gold, Sinespace’s in-world currency! However, you can “sell” a free item (like the snowball) to another person, which is a clever work-around way for someone to send you a gift or prize of Gold.

So, get dressed up in your finest outfit, and come join us as we dance under the stars!

How to Find Events in Sinespace

Between dealing with the backlash I got from reporting on the Sansar layoffs, preparing and delivering my presentation for the Educators in VR conference, and that pesky coronavirus, I have not been writing as many sponsored blogposts about Sinespace as I wanted to this month. Please accept my apologies! I promise that I will be back at work on it in March!

This is my final weekend off before I head back to my paying job, so I decided to spend some quality time in Sinespace.

(There’s also a handy page on the Sinespace website listing all upcoming events, which unfortunately does not do time conversions for you.)
