Pick of the Day: Picnic at Mr. Darcy’s

I want to share a wonderful blog about one of the experiences I created in Sansar.

Picnic at Mr. Darcy's 1 20 August 2017

Today’s Pick of the Day is Picnic at Mr. Darcy’s, created by Solas (who is already a well-known fashion designer in Second Life as the owner of BlueMoon Enterprise (SL store, blog) and the co-owner of Silvan Moon Designs (SL Store, SL Marketplace, Flickr). Solas takes her inspiration from Jane Austen’s novel Pride and Prejudice, designing a Regency-era English manor house and landscaped grounds.

You materialize in front of a large, stately mansion, next to a set of croquet equipment, all ready for play. If you are in a VR headset with hand controllers, you can actually pick up the mallets and balls, and play croquet! (Unfortunately, Sansar users in desktop mode cannot yet pick up objects in-world. Linden Lab is striving for feature parity between VR and non-VR users of Sansar, and I hope that this functionality will be added soon.)

– Quem é você, diga logo…                            – Who are you, tell me now…
– Que eu quero saber o seu jogo…               – I want to play your game…
– Que eu quero morrer no seu bloco…       – I want to get lost in your block…
– Que eu quero me arder no seu fogo.        – I want to burn in your fire…

Masked lovers search for each other while the music comes alive, playing the guessing game between drinks and dances. “I play the tambourine”, hints the tall stranger. “I prefer the guitar”, she playfully answers from behind the feathers of her mask.

The Carnival is a vibrant, wonderful celebration in the tropical lands where my roots used to lay. Tonight I celebrate it…

Ah, morning in a winter Faeryland. And I emerge from my picturesque house (which is kind of a hovel, to be fair) into the crisp early morning, where everything looks a bit like a Thomas Kincaid painting … to go to work.

fairy-g-blog-5 There is definitely something wrong with this picture.

There is definitely something wrong with this picture. Because I am off to attend the naming ceremony of some ridiculous little mortal baby, who’ll grow up into a pampered princess, do something stupid, and then end up having to be rescued by a Handsome Prince ™. It’s really enough to give a Faery Godmother pause.
