Star Trek dance

Last night we had a great turnout for the Star Trek dance and everyone did a great job of getting into character when it came to costumes (and one particular shop on the marketplace is probably wondering why they had a run on a particular design of dress, it seems). The SciFi themes for Raven Park dances always seem to get the most attention -- it's almost like our residents and friends are, you know, a bit geeky or something. ;)

Here's a few photos from the event:

Normally we don't caption the pictures, it's nice to let them
speak for themselves. But we feel that we should point out
that this is a photo of our resident DJ Eve Terr with her
pet Tribble. Yes, she is in there somewhere. Trust us.

Worth another rare caption: it must have been a special night
because even Taffy was dancing!

Finally, come the end of the dance, we couldn't resist a group shot or two that made the most of the set:

Once again we'd like to say a huge thank you to Eve for providing the music and everyone else for providing the company and good banter. We'll be back in two weeks with another themed dance. Hope to see you all then.


Mad Scientist dance at The Velvet Thorn

Last night's Mad Scientist dance at The Velvet Thorn was loads of fun, with lots of people attending and grabbing a copy of our free gift. Here's a few photos from the event (be sure to also check out the photos posted to the VT blog).

Many thanks to Miss Eve and the staff of VT for inviting us to take part.


Dance this Saturday

Time for another Raven Park dance and, we think, time for another dance with a science fiction there. This time around we're heading for a post-apocalyptic utopian future where money doesn't exist (except where it does), where humans are all about peace and exploration (in their ships armed to the teeth) and where you'll find no finer examples of the art of retcon.

Yes, that's right, we're going boldly (or is that boldly going?) into the world of...

No matter if your thing is ST:ToS, ST:TNG, ST:DS9, ST:V or ST:E (or, if you like, those new films that are all about lens flare), everyone is welcome. Pick your uniform, your alien race, whatever takes your fancy, and join us:

Date: Saturday July 27th
Time: 4pm to 6pm SLT
Where: Raven Park
Music by: Eve Terr

Don't miss out. You know we'll have all the best Trek-themed tunes!

Free gift at The Velvet Thorn this Friday

This Friday (26th) The Velvet Thorn are having a dance themed on all things related to mad scientists. When asked if we wanted to take part, and knowing the theme, we just had to say yes. So the last week or so we've being working on something a bit silly, a bit evil and, we hope, something that says "mad scientist".

Come along to The Velvet Thorn on Friday, from 2pm until 4pm, and look for this:

Slap the board and you'll have your very own Z&A Steam-Powered Electrostimulator.

And don't forget to practice your evil laugh.


Second Life SNAFUs dance

Last night's Second Life SNAFU dance was all kinds of fun. And I think everyone agreed that we should never deliberately look this bad again. So, for the first and last time, here's a handful of photos of Raven Park residents and friends enjoying and celebrating when Second Life can go wrong (complete with not-quite rezzed textures for the skybox, fake ruthed Lindens and a floor that kept disappearing):

We'll be back with another dance in two weeks. And, all being well, looking a lot better and a lot sharper. ;)
