Z&A Christmas Gifts

Now that it's rather close to Christmas it's time to make the Z&A RLV Christmas gifts available in the main store. If you don't already have an RLV gift box, candy cane display, stocking, Christmas tree or snowman, this is your chance to pick one up and add a dusting of RLV to your festive decorations.

You'll find the vendor boards for them in front of the counter:

Just head over to the main store and touch each vendor for your copy of the gifts.

PS: Talking of all things Christmas, don't forget that you still have a chance of winning a Z&A product or two by entering the photo contest over at The Velvet Thorn.


Raven Park panto

Yesterday we gathered in Miss Anna's panto-themed build, above Raven Park, and enjoyed Miss Eve's festive-themed musical selection. There was fun and puns and nattering (and vague mention of how Anna and Antony had got engaged in RL).

You can find an album of photos over on imgur. Here's some highlights:

Many thanks to everyone who came along and made it such fun, to Miss Anna for the great build, and especially to Miss Eve for a great selection of seasonal songs.

Raven Park dances are now going to take their usual little winter holiday and will be back in January. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you all!


Velvet Thorn photo competition

The Velvet Thorn have just launched a photo competition, aimed at those who fancy their abilities with an SL camera and who want to explore all that VT has to offer. You can find the entry board up near the chat circle on the region and, from it, you can get instructions and rules for entry.

The reason why I mention it here is that Z&A have provided a few prizes. So, if you enjoy a bit of SL photography, like exploring Femdom regions and want a chance to win a Z&A product, you know what to do.

And if you don't know what to do, here's the details and the rules for the competition:

Hey there!

So glad you're interested in entering our Photo Competition! We have lots of fun prizes on offer for the photos that impress us, from some fantastic creators, including Dictatorshop, Evelock, and Z&A Productions.

To win a prize, you simply enter a photo *that you uploaded* into the big picture frame that gave you this notecard. The photos that impress us get a prize. Simple :)

The contest runs from 10th December 2016 until 7th January 2017. While the contest is open, all the entries will be in a slideshow, shown on the very picture frame you got this notecard from.


1) The photo must be taken on the Velvet Thorn sim and contain at least one avatar.

        Photos may be enhanced in graphic manipulation software such as Photoshop, 
        for example to add a caption, but must still be recognisably taken on the Velvet Thorn sim.

2) The photo must have a seasonal, holidays theme. 

        Photos do not have to be square (1:1 ratio) but will definitely look better when displayed if they are. 

3) The photo must be full permissions for the next owner. 

        Right click on the image in your inventory and choose properties to check and make sure these permissions are set correctly.

4) By entering, you give Velvet Thorn the right to publish your photo on its blog, or on the sim, with appropriate credit.

5) The photo must be named "VT Photo Comp Entry by <your legacy avatar name>". Any entry not named correctly will be removed from the contest.

6) The photo must not break any of Linden Lab's terms and conditions. Nudity is fine, but keep it tasteful; and stay away from subjects that might cause offense. This is about having fun.

7) Each entry will be judged by a team of Velvet Thorn staff, and those that impress us will be given a prize from the collection we have amassed from our wonderful sponsors.

8) Prizes will be given to the avatar who uploaded the photo, not to anyone else.

9) Prizes may be given at any time, but will be received by the winners no later than 10th January 2017. The number of prizes awarded is wholly dependent on the generosity of our sponsors, and they have been generous indeed.


1) Check that your photo is correctly named. "VT Photo Comp Entry by <your legacy avatar name>".

2) Check that your photo is full permissions for the next owner. Right click on the image in your inventory and choose "Properties" to check and change them.

3) Locate your photo in your inventory.

4) Hold down "Ctrl" and drag your photo from your inventory onto the picture frame. The outline turning red lets you know that you got it in the right place. Let go of the mouse, and then let go of "Ctrl". You are all done, and should get a message in local to say that.

Any queries or questions about the contest should be directed to Eve Terr, or in her absence, StarSong Bright.

Raven Park dance this Saturday

This Saturday it's time for another Raven Park dance and, because the dances will soon be taking their annual mid-winter break, we're obviously making it a Christmas-based dance. In previous years we've done a Gothic Christmas and a slutty Christmas so we felt it was time to really camp it up, get out the tights, do a bit of thigh-slapping and likely a good dose of cross-dressing and.... hang on, that's a normal Raven Park dance isn't it?

Oh well, let's do it anyway!

Yes, this time around, come join us for the Raven Park panto. Dress as your favourite pantomime character (or at least the one you've been told you're dressing as if you're the sort of person who likes to be bossed around) and come enjoy a couple of hours of Miss Eve's festive choices.

Here's all the details:

Date: Saturday December 10th
Time: 3pm to 5pm SLT
Where: Raven Park
Music by: Eve Terr
