the Avi Choice Awards

The Avi Choice Awards Ceremony has been great fun. Totally laggy and with a lot of people who could not enter the main structure due to the need to reserve space for those directly involved in the Awards, but still it was a thrilling event, past paced and full of emotions.

Many of the nominees I backed did not make it and that was disappointing, but I guess it is part of the fun. The Prim Perfect  getting the Award was a great satisfaction though.

My feeling is that this year the Awards have grown to full maturity and have become something for which the grid does care. Some category I would drop, some others I would add, but I can't deny that I already look forward the the 2013 edition (the Mayans permitting :-) )

Happy Anniversary Winterfell !

These are the days of the 6th Anniversary of Winterfell. (different historians place the actual date either on the 31st of October of the 1st of November). We can claim Winterfell was born on the night of Halloween

These are the images of the party that took place yesterday in a building build by Princess Selena and that was inspired by the original Winterfell Castle.

the New Admiralty in Eventide

WIld Fleet Admirality - Winterfell Eventide


It is almost one year since the Battle of the Isle of Skye, an event that, despite the victorious outcome,  saw the fleet deeply depleted and weakened.

The recent tragic events that brought to the loss of the Empire of Steeltopia, one of the jewels of the Steamlands, caused me further concern, and I worried about the capacity to sustain a surprise attack.

Winterfell has always been a peaceful land and we all wish it to stay that way, but the past experiences and the present news have taught us that sometimes others do not share and respect this wish.

I have therefore decided to reinforce the naval base in Winterfell Eventide, adding new ships to the Home Squadron and building a new Admiralty site to better coordinate the naval operations in the unfortunate event that the necessity should arise.


WIld Fleet Admirality - Winterfell Eventide


An official opening event of the Admiralty will be announced soon.

Fair Winds!

Fantasy Faire Featured Merchant : Lerochelle Destiny of De La Soul

De La Soul offers a wide range of fantasy themed products, ranging from clothing to skins. In particular the Ikon skins are made solely for the Fantasy Faire and will be available through to the end of the run in June at the main store and a few select outlets. All the Ikon skins at the Faire are in RFL vendor, so that all the earnings go to RFL.





Lerochelle Destiny, the owner of the brand tells me something about his creative story in SL: "I originally started creating skins and accessories in IMVU, then discovered Secondlife and started playing. At first, just manipulating a prim and it grew from a really crappy looking spiral chair to everything in De La Soul."



Lerochelle gets his inspiration from a wide variety of sources "It could be anything really, from music to a piece of artwork, but usually it is a pattern I find lodged somewhere in my computer, long forgotten." 
In particular, for what concerns the new line of skins he says  "The Ikon skins were a happy accident of applying the "wrong" filter in the right way when I sneezed. The happy accidents are the best ones I think because you end up with unexpected results."




Other items presented at the Fantasy faire are the Aurora Borealis Felidae Elvens, Violent Deamon, and Lerochelle's  first RFL creation, the RFL Kitty avatars.


In the image below, you can see yours truly , modeling one of the Ikon skins.
