Last week we all gathered for an early Halloween party at Angelwood. Our hosts, Jordana Streeter and Aaronson Swindlehurst, threw a marvelous blast!! Jordana sent me at least 40 pics and I had some of my own. You haven’t seen anything until you’ve seen Lucy from the Peanuts gang pole dancing. 🙂 Oh my, poor Mr. Shultz!!!! Linus was there with his blanket, Snoopy with his (her?) doghouse and of course, Charlie Brown – you blockhead!!!! 🙂 We all had a wonderful wonderful time. I had no idea how best to post these pics so I simply ran them all together. Click on them to see the full photo. You know I never put up anyone’s name without prior permission, so there are no names here. Please – feel free to comment and identify yourself (or anyone else who wouldn’t mind being identified). I was there – but I was boring (no surprise there). I had no time to shop (gee, do you think it was because I spend every minute inworld landscaping???) so I grabbed my Steampunk outfit and headed over. Probably I should have gone as a pirate – maybe I could have snagged a dance with Jack Sparrow!!!!!
Saturday night was my first-ever SL rave! “Rave” probably needs to be defined. 🙂 I want to make sure my readers and I are thinking the same thing. According to Wikipedia: A rave (or rave party), is a term, in use since the 1980s, to describe dance parties (often all-night events). At these parties DJs and other performers play electronic dance music (sometimes referred to as “rave music”), with the accompaniment of laser light shows, projected images, and artificial fog. LOL. We have attended numerous “coming of age parties” for young teens. Nearly all of those parties would fit the definition of a rave. But Wikipedia goes on to say that raves are often associated with the use of ‘”club drugs”. Hmmm. I confess that is NOT within my experience (/me waves “Hi Mom!!”) 🙂 The good news for me was that Shenlei’s Universal Rave fit the first part of the definition! I WAS sipping some white wine while attending, but I figure that qualifies as the “artificial fog” part, no?? 🙂
Oh Shen!!! You are the best! Back in my early days you and Calli helped me clean up my avatar act both technically and visually. You gave me horses to ride and fly. You helped me put together a fun outfit for partying. And now- my first full-blown wild rave party in SL!!!! What a blast! I wish I had a movie of it. I wish I had thought to take pictures right from the beginning. I wish I were a better photographer! I want to show everyone who reads this what fun we all had.
How can I communicate the total sensory overload of the Universal Rave???
The music – loud, pounding, fun, non-stop, great for dancing
The lights – LOVED the light show. Folks – all the planets were circling about us. Lights were flashing and exploding everywhere.
Amusements – anti-gravity bubbles and more
Guests – what a fun crowd and such creative outfits!!! I also forgot to save any chat to show readers how “explosions” can happen in chat boxes as well
I hope someone out there took really great photos and posts them so that everyone can see what an incredible, wonderful, fun, stimulating, transporting, wild time we all had. Until I find that link, understand these photos to be my best attempt, deficient as it is, to communicate part of the experience
