Tomorrow, at 12:00 AM SLT, the 17 SL13B sims will open and the celebration of Second Life’s 13th Birthday will begin! Prepare for a week of parties, exhibitions, experiences and discussions. There will be so much to see and do, a week always seems too short.
Today I SL13B was open for the Press and so I could have a look around, and take some pictures. As every year I checked out the huge stages first, as they never fail to impress – sim wide builds to party all the time.
Well and I checked out the Auditorium, where Designing World will have the panel discussions and interviews and where Katya and myself will be for a discussion on Bloggers and the community, see this blogpost for more details.
So the stages! I particularly love the Live Stage – a giant Turtle which uses ‘experiences’ to TP you to its inside, a desert like dome. Very cool and well made!
The DJ Stage is an enormous tree, with lush and fantasy forests on the ground surrounding it, I can imagine the great parties in there already.
Then there is the famous Cake Stage. More or less the same build as the past years, so not really a surprise, very nicely made nonetheless and it is always a bright, happy sight! (I’ve used a picture of the Cake Stage as featured image for this blogpost)
The coming days I will explore the exhibitions by residents, probably tour around by a pod – which is always a great way to not miss a thing!
