Events are a blast in SecondLife, I enjoy them greatly, and have gotten pretty methodical about my shopping. You see, I not only go shop for myself, but I make a list of all the things I want to buy Mrs. Raynier. It is always a great perk when a vendor has gifting options that way I can send her all the things! We then head on over to the event and shop together, pointing out what we like what colors or patterns we prefer. If the event is ultra crowded we wait a few days so we can go together.
I have had conversations here and there with other residents about events in SL and often they do not know where to keep track of what is going on, or haven’t heard about certain events on the proverbial SL street. I always point residents to SeraphimSL and urge them to add Seraphim to their RSS reader or subscribe in some fashion to keep up to date with the events they cover.
Another hang-up some residents have mentioned, and this is mainly the guys, feeling there is nothing at those events for the dudes. Not true! For example, this round of Collabor88 has Atro Patena putting out a new version of Nicholas, aptly named Nicholas II. We also of course thankfully have the amazing event The Men’s Department which has been a fantastic event for men BUT not limited to just the male gender. That’s what I love about events, you can find a little of everything at most of them, it just takes a little looking around and often the courage to look outside the box.
Take this great bow-tie necklace from Yummy, you may approach it with the thought that it is for girls only, well I challenge that and say nay, it’s for anyone that it fits their style, and we all know how much I love my bow-ties in real life and SL, so for me it was a must wear.
Think outside the box and dare to be yourself, no matter what the packaging shows, if it appeals to you, wear it!
