After seeing so many lovely pictures of the sim H22O done by Squonk Levenque and Miuccia Klaar, I had to go see it for myself.
I arrived at the landing point, and in order to get down to the main sim I used a drain pipe right by a tree. I landed inside of a lighthouse and took a look around inside, which I highly recommend you do before venturing outside. Once I was outside, I turned my volume on, something I rarely do in SL, and let the sound of rain and thunder wash over me. The sim has some of the best elements for me personally. It is hauntingly beautiful, and set up for a variety of blogger and photographer needs.
Starfall’s Twilights Edge has everything I love in a sim. The land is an open water sim that is so beautifully done, you could spend quite a bit of your time just taking it all in. You can then take a dive underwater to an ethereal place full of flora and fauna. To get to the underwater portion, all you need to do it look for the fish right beside the welcome board, and descend into the depths. There are also two more spaces in the sky, the first is The Whales Song Sphere, a dream like area. The second is called Midnight Orchid, a room that is a bit dark and sensual. Please make sure to click on the welcome sign for a notecard for all information on the sim.
Inez Pennell and Cinderr Resident did a gorgeous job designing the sim and the owner is Aquaglo. It is perfect for bloggers wanting that special shot or to use an underwater scene, people that love to take pictures of sims, or for people to just go and take in.
I’m a little late in the game in posting this fantastic sim, but I had to anyway.
The Trash Art Installation by Mexi Lane is one of the more unique artistic places I have seen in Second Life for awhile. As you can see from the photo’s, there are mounds of trash, expertly put together, and with some amazing textures. It is also an interactive installation. You are able to take a bulldozer and traverse the piles, leading to a more immersive effect. I had a lot of fun with the feature.
There is a museum, music, and an area where couples can dance beside water and sparkling trees.
I took the time today to revisit Annwn Willows since it has been redone, and it is beautiful. Joanna Corith did a wonderful job of putting together the partially underwater, partially not sim. It is a fantastic place to take more artistic pictures for your blog, and you can also take loved ones or friends to just go and relax. There is a note card that you get when you land, please take the time to read the very simple rules.
This evening I took a trip to one of the many beautiful Calas Galashon Park Sim, Gulf of Lune. It is one of my favorites of the bunch, a lush marshland with mountains and an open sea. It is a peaceful place to hang out, featuring many varieties of wildlife, as well as places to relax.
When you land on the sim, there is also a board with all of the Calas Galashon Park sims that you are able to visit, as well as a note card that you can read for information on them.
I finally got around to taking a trip to Dawn of Radiance done by Silvermoon Fairey, a gorgeous sim that is currently all done up for winter. When you enter the sim, there are four different paths that you can go down, each with very well done sections. You can tell that a lot of thought went into the build, and there is even a beach section that is closed for winter which I found adorable (although it is of course still accessible). It is a fantastic place for taking pictures for your blog, pictures of the sim itself, or to go have a peaceful place to hang out with friends and loved ones.
