Shoetopia - Fall 2017

Following a link from a friend, I visited Shoetopia's Fall 2017 event.  It's a footwear extravaganza - what's not to love?
The design is chic - like landing in a dream dressing room (I mentioned shoes, right?)
By the time I left there were almost 50 avatars (mostly female, obviously - but there is footwear for men too) frothing at the mouths like rabid animals at the sight of boots and shoes from many top Second Life designers.
Did I buy anything?  Well, you'll just have to wait and see.
Shoetopia can be found here.

The Artist's Palette - Hello Autumn

Following a link I found myself at The Artist's Palette - Hello Autumn.

Autumn is my favourite season so I loved all the autumn colours and decorations around the area.  Each seller has there own quaint wooden shed - the first lot are arranged either side of disused train tracks.

Some of the sellers have low priced gifts on their stalls.
Following along the tracks to the end, take the path to the right to find a larger area of sheds arranged on three tiers.

The Artist's Palette can be found here.

Transgender Hate Crime and Suicide Memorial

In a quiet corner of SL, I took a few moments to visit the Transgender Hate Crime and Suicide Memorial which "is dedicated to all transgender people who have lost their lives to suicide or murder." 
Inside the building there are candles with eulogies to the fallen and some very moving posters relating to hate crime and suicide.  Outside are two obelisks with the names of far too many people who have been lost.

The memorial is watched over by a mourning angel.

The Transgender Hate Crime and Suicide Memorial can be found here.

Fantasy Gay Pride Festival 2017

I arrived at Fantasy Gay Pride Festival on a misty Sunday morning and was immediately greeted by a blaze of colour in the form of a rotating zodiac dancefloor.  Pillars around it advertise various events and attractions.  There is also a "Stars of the Stars" hunt.

The first thing that pulled me in was a yellow brick road.  I journeyed along it - past Professor Marvel's caravan to Munchkinland where some unfortunate soul has been flattened by a low flying house.  I tried to assist her, but I was too late.  It seemed a shame to waste her lovely red shoes so I took them for safekeeping.
Further along the path I passed by an orchard with a tin man and a field with a scarecrow.  In the trees there was a lion, but it seemed too cowardly to come out to play.  At the end of the yellow brick road there was a sparkling city seemingly made of emeralds.
I retraced my steps back to the arrival point and wandered north west across some rope bridges to discover tree houses soaring skyward.
Further along the beach, I found a rather exotic waterslide, the centrepiece of which had a look of Julian Clary.  It was uncanny and unnatural - but utterly glam.
Once more from the arrival point, I ventured south up the hillside - up a pile of books to the Moon Cannon.  Accepting steampunk breathing apparatus and a ray gun from the strange looking chap, I boarded the rocket.  A short while later I landed on the moon.  Whilst exploring the caverns below the surface, I found that the natives were not very welcoming - that explains the ray gun!  The moon was okay for exploring, but not much good for parties as there was no atmosphere(!)
From the arrival point there is a large book with a hole in it.  I followed a trail of books through it and spent a while daydreaming in the gazebo as I listened to the ambient music, before continuing my sightseeing tour with a visit to the homes of Emily Dickinson and Oscar Wilde.

Elsewhere, using the teleporters, I visited a castle, a circus and Saturn - where time is of the essence.
There is also an exhibit dedicated to Alan Turing, which features a model of the code breaking machine.  Next to the Truing exhibit is a courtroom with a range of reading materials on the walls.  Be careful of the judge...I have been sentenced to two years hard labour for gross indecency!  Thankfully, if it's hard, it is no labour.

Once you have done your tour, you can pop in to the The Grapes pub (as part owned by Sir Ian McKellan) for a drink and a bite to eat before popping down to the theatre - via the phone box to pick up some freebies.
And finally a bit of relaxation.
The Fantasy Gay Pride Festival is open from Friday 25th Aug until Sunday 3rd September.

About Me

My photo
Hi, my name is Bailey and I am an avatar in Second Life. Although my avatar is predominantly female in Second Life, I am a gay male in real life. I choose to be female most of the time and don't see it as a big deal in a virtual world where so many people are furries, werewolves and inanimate objects. It is all fantasy. This blog is about me, the places I go, the clothes I wear, the people I meet, etc.
