"Translvania Wonders" by Bambi Chicque

“Translvania Wonders” by Bambi Chicque

Great news for everyone enjoying SL12B!

The Exhibits will remain open through the 4th of July 2015!

I had taken this photo a couple of weeks ago and promised Sabbian Paine

a nice review for their “Translvania” Exhibit!  I also quickly teleported too their

Vampyr Empire and found myself in a vampire dream!

Sabbian has a wonderful art gallery on exhibit there, along with several other

Creators who have vampire & goth elements available, too!

Vampyr Empire is one of Second Life’s longest running communities

with a close family who offer support for this lifestyle.

Among the grounds are mysterious castles and

dark corners of amazing finds and posing spots.

You can enjoy live events at “The Wall” with entertainment & music 24/7!

"When Horses Fly" by Bambi Chicque

“When Horses Fly” by Bambi Chicque

 

The Year Of Our Lord 1554:  Among the fjords of Bergen, one might capture a

glimpse of merhorses flying among the birds or gliding atop

the waves and tides of the azure seas…

Fast forward to 1846 where James Wilson and James Boehner sailed along the shores

of St. Margaret’s Bay in Nova Scotia when they spotted a great merhorse

with a flowing mane…..

Sometime in 1913 another observation by a steamer crew sat back in awe as one

appeared alongside with a smooth, yet furry seal-like body

reeling along the ocean’s mist….

And now in 2015 you can enjoy a prodigious scene with wondrous

flying horses at my SL12B BamPu Legacies & The SL Photographers Exhibit !!

Be sure to click the stars for a superb flying effect in front of the

turquoise Merhorse and elven bridge!

Enjoy!  Bambi

Helena Stringer Banner.

Owner/Designer of The Stringer Mausoleum

“I have always been fascinated with mythology. My university dissertation involved extensive

research on various mythologies during all historical ages.

A lot of that learning seeps into my Second Life,

be it through my avatar, my creations for my store,

or the art I choose to shoot, when I have the time.”

“Mercreatures have always been one of the rare loves of mine.

Something I normally don’t share with others in my second life,

I choose for it to be a special time for me, swimming amongst the waves alone.”

“I took this shot of my alt, while off frolicking the one day.

It is one of my most viewed photos I have ever captured.”

Sabbian Paine

Sabbian Paine Banner.

Sabbian Paine has been capturing the world of Second Life through his lens since

early 2009 when he was introduced to the world of Second Life photography.

What started out as a hobby for this real life artist soon became a big passion for Sabbian.

SL quickly became a new platform of self expression allowing a limitless

source of atmospheres and backdrops to his work which he often refers to being

submersed in a world filled with three dimensional art.

In addition to being constantly inspired by the creations SL has to offer,

music and emotions

play a big driving force behind in Sabbian’s work.

Each piece shares the title or a lyric of a song which inspired it

and is meant to be experienced with the song playing like a soundtrack to that image.

Sabbian has exhibited in various galleries across the grid including his first solo

exhibition in 2013 at at the Vampre Cultural Centre in his family sim of Transylvania

where he now has his main gallery. He has also exhibited at Nitroglobus,

The Rose Gallery, The Dominion Gallery,  Beguiled Spring Art Walk, Gallery Assis,

Galeries de Sinne, Galerie des Machines, Isole Art Gallery, The Gallery at Somerton,

Pessoa Gallery, Artists 4 SL, Crossworld’s Gallery and Branwen Arts..

Sabbian’s work has also been featured in a number of SL magazines

including a RL online publication.

"Midnight Train to Whiter Dreams" by Bambi Chicque

“Midnight Train to Whither Dreams” by Bambi Chicque

Destination:  Midnight Train To Whither Dreams….

Entering a dark, yet cozy deserted apocalypse plumbered park

you find your way down the steps

of a curious mountainside to the train depot.

Clinching your ticket tightly so not to lose it’s purpose,

an utterly nuclear thought hits your head.

It appears a widespread of destruction has blasted this city and you are caught

amid the rubble and broken glass.  One might begin to worry,

but there is a purpose for us all beyond the predictions of global famine

and threats to our ozone….

Is this a nightmare or a dream?

You carry onward in a point of no return.

Or do you……..?

Have you entered the twilight zone?

All can hear that music now………

As you clear your eyes of the hazy smoke and fumes spewing within the rails….

it becomes much more clear as you desperately capture your virtual awakening.

Reality?

You have entered SL12B Welcome Area….

….known as “The Station” !

Lingering just to your left is an information board for the stages and other points of interest

where you can easily click to obtain landmarks, information or teleport into the beyond.

The midnight express trains,

{exhibit & trains designed by Walton F. Wainwright (Faust Steamer) of Contraption },

soar up into the sky taking you to whither dreams and beyond!

….You hope!

I am quite fascinated with this exhibit jousting such an apocalyptic embarkment

and, as usual,

I grabbed my camera to capture the essence and impressive warmth it promises.

☆═━┈┈━═☆.♡.☆═━┈┈━═☆.♡.☆═━┈┈━═☆

SL12B Welcome Area – The Station

“What dreams may come”. Where will your imagination and fantasy take you?

To a nightmare, or to a dream?

A sleeping dream or a waking dream?

Or maybe your dreams of creativity, friendship, companionship and fun will take you to…….

Second Life……….”

☆═━┈┈━═☆.♡.☆═━┈┈━═☆.♡.☆═━┈┈━═☆

Happy Birthday, Second Life!

And, Faust??? You totally outdid yourself here, dear!  Amazing build!

"Feets Don’t Fail Me Now" by Bambi Chicque

“Feets Don’t Fail Me Now” by Bambi Chicque

Cammino e Vivo Capovolto by Mistero Hifeng

As a tribute to Second Life, a surreal journey beyond the time.

Visit this amazing exhibit at SL12B Pizzazz!

Stay up to date!

Most art-install seekers of Second Life knows of the mysterious and unique

marbled works of Mistero Hifeng.  SL12B is endowed by having him agglutinate

parts of his designs from his current “Cammino e Vivo Capovolto”!

As you encounter his overwhelming, yet subtle, blending of dreamy realities

you can almost hear his sculptures whispering to you.

Each tells their own story as long as you allow them to.

Yesterday was SL12B Press Day where the parcels were full of bouncing and

flying photographers from all walks of historian and event reporters, bloggers

& press teams.  I was careful in selecting one of the most matchless and novel peculiars

you may chance upon when you visit this Celebration!

I salute Mistero for his brave and marveled imagination as he continues

to create remarkable exhibits for all of SL to enjoy!

Hope to see you there soon!

"SL12B Dreaming" by Bambi Chicque

“SL12B Dreaming” by Bambi Chicque

SL Community Celebration is upon us once again honoring our 12th birthday year!

Doors will open June 21 through June 28, 2015.

KEEP UP TO DATE: SL12B

“What Dreams May Come” is this year’s theme!

As I have been building there and flying around shooting photos for the SL12B Guide,

I am more than impressed with everyone’s envision of this

topic which touches us all in a melody of motifs!

We all love the multitude of fantasy faires, themed events, unique and different installment builds

along with visiting sims where the creator has peak elements of techy concoctions to present!

So, when we visit any of the SL Community Birthday Celebrations,

strolling along the sidewalks or riding the pod,

we spend hours upon hours filling our eyes, cameras and mind with the most

imaginative inventions where the Creator’s dream came alive!

You will find representation of role-play sims, universities, information centers,

charities, entertainment venues, art installments & galleries, scientific displays,

designers of many types

 exhibiting some of their creations available at their shops

….and more and more and more!

∻⊰♡ ⊱∻

This is an event where you will find our newcomers roaming with eagerness to learn,

creators and builders visiting one another’s exhibits and chatting along

with compliments and ideas, buyers and freebie hunters

looking for something odd or new or a souvenir to rez out

(all gifts at SL12B are free) and awe over,

bloggers snapping away for photos, writers writing away,

video experts shooting live footage,

entertainers galore at their scheduled events and wondering around afterwards to

say “howdy” to visitors, etc, etc, etc…..

the list flies on and on and dreams ever more!

∻⊰♡ ⊱∻

It’s my opinion that this event stands out with utmost importance

for all the citizens of Second Life

and reveals vast levels of reasons we are all here and spend so much time designing

who we want to be in this vibrant virtual world.

∻⊰♡ ⊱∻∻⊰♡ ⊱∻∻⊰♡ ⊱∻

Now a little rambling for me…and you…..

I personally prefer to dress a little more in casual fashion or jean-style attire while here;

taking me away from my endless role-play and exotic inventory folders.

Reason??

Well, I feel more comfortable and I prefer to do my part to keep the scripts and lag down.

This isn’t an event I want to go to and show off myself,

I want to see what everyone else is showing off!

∻⊰♡ ⊱∻

AVOID LAG – Just a little hint:

Once the celebration opens and with all the mixed ingredients, materials, scripts, textures,

music and huge crowds of avis…..there will be lag.

What can you do?

First off, close out everything!

Close out all browser windows, close out any programs you have running,

turn your preferences way down, turn off your mic,

wear non-scripted articles of clothing (why not go with just layered items?),

make sure you have X’d out all your messages that are lingering,

only have one inventory available (not two),

delete any landmarks that are hovering at the top of your screen and, in fact,

try to go just invisible!

Can you imagine how much this would help if everyone did this?

∻⊰♡ ⊱∻

So, now for my photo presenting my rendition of SL12B ~ 12-Year Birthday!….

The Annex sent this fashionable “Carrie” Skirt in Bird Of Paradise texturing just on time

for me to search for something comfy and casual; yet dressy enough for my photo!

(Actually, I am thrilled with it!)

I took the scripts out of my hair and found some non-scripted pumps to wear!

If you have ever been a Builder or part of the SL12B Team/Entertainment/Press

at any of the SL Celebrations, you know that at first peak

you see an endless and limitless row of empty sims after sims stretching out to dreamland.

The clouds pace and puff above you traveling around and around

until you finally start to see the spectacle of items

going up and up and up daily…..

and finally…..

towers and towers of intelligence, colors and complexity appear!

That’s why I thought I would give you a little “SL12B Dreaming” peak at what that’s like!

Enjoy!  xoxo Bambi
