Raven Park dance this Saturday

This Saturday it's time for another Raven Park dance and this week's theme is, in part, inspired by current events in the UK. Given that we seem intent on turning back the clock to a "golden age" (or some such nonsense) we thought we'd do the same in-world. So slap on your best victory rolls, brush up on your swing dance moves, find your best floral pattern or your sharpest dress uniform because we're heading back to the 1940s!

Come join us for tea and sarnies and cake and tea and natter and tea and... did we mention tea? Yeah, there might be tea.

Here's all the details:

Date: Saturday April 1st
Time: 3pm to 5pm SLT
Where: Raven Park
Music by: Eve Terr


Buffy dance

Yesterday afternoon we gathered in the Sunnydale High library, high above Raven Park, and celebrated 20 years of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. We had a good few Willows, and a Buffy or two, and we enjoyed lots of great music from Miss Eve.

You can find an album of photos from the dance over on Google Photos. Here's a few highlights:

Many thanks to Miss Eve for the great music, and to Miss Anna for the wonderful build. And, of course, lots of thanks to everyone who came along and made it such fun (and remembered that the clocks were a little adrift for most of us too). Hope to see you in a couple of weeks for the next one!

PS: There was some talk of the dances going "on tour" -- heading over to other regions that are called home by some of our regulars -- so keep an eye out for future announcements about this.


Raven Park dance this Saturday

After the brief "holiday" due to a busy RL for Anna and Antony, Raven Park dances are making a return this weekend. The theme this time around is very much a special one for Anna as it's based around the 20th "birthday" of one of her favourite TV shows!

Yup, this time around, get out your best wooden stakes, your best arse-kicking boots, or perhaps break out your favourite vampire, demon or librarian costumes. It's time to celebrate turning 20! Join us on Raven Park for a couple of hours of suitably-themed music by Miss Eve, a suitable build by Anna and lots of fun company by everyone.

Here's the details:

Date: Saturday March 18th
Time: 3pm to 5pm SLT
Where: Raven Park
Music by: Eve Terr

PS: DON'T FORGET! If you're not in the US, the grid is currently an hour out from what you're used to. Be sure to check your times for this dance.


Z&A Metal Stage Cell

New today in the main store and on the Second Life marketplace is a cell designed with showing off your property, or "products", in mind. It's called the Metal Stage cell:

When the Metal Stage cell was built I had in mind things like slave auctions or simply builds that were about showing off your captive. The cell itself is raised up on a stand, has an entrance at the rear and also has three projector lights that can be used to illuminate the inmates. The lights can be easily controlled via a menu and can be turned on, off or set to only turn on when the sun has set on the region.

As usual, the cell comes in both transfer and copy versions, both of which can be found in the main store and on the Second Life Marketplace.

If you want to try the cell out yourself just head down to the main store where you'll find a copy for testing rezzed in the new products area (and, of course, you'll find a copy with all the other cells in the cell section of the shop).

Many thanks to Anna for helping to set up this shoot
You can see Anna's take on how the cell might be used in a build over on her blog.
