Saffia and Elrik are in a cosy Bellisseria log home, owned and decorated for the season by Brianne Slade, and from there they show us some of the beautiful winter locations around the grid.

This show was filmed by Elrik, Saffia and Bain Finch – and the photoshoot is by Wildstar Beaumont.

You won’t want to miss it so tune in or come to the Watch Party in Garden of Dreams! There may be dancing afterwards!

A Bellisseria Fantasy Home, photographed by Wildstar Beaumont

Catch up with the discussion – when Designing Worlds met with Patch Linden, Vice President, Product Operations and Brett Linden, Vice President of Marketing at Linden Lab, to talk about some developing projects – and the possibilities of the sudden popularity of and conversations about the metaverse.

We started off in the newest area of Bellisseria, which we first saw at this year’s Second Life Birthday celebrations – the Fantasy homes. We discovered the magnificent Community Centre – The Eyrie – and the progress of Linden Homes, as well as current interest in the metaverse. And the wonderful photoshoot from Wildstar Beaumont was all about the fantasy Linden Homes.

Then we moved on to discuss and explore current joint projects between Linden Lab and third parties, bringing new experiences to Second Life: Film Threat and Zenescope. And we also talked about what the future might hold for virtual worlds in general and Second Life in particular.

ChangHigh Sisters, photographed by Wildstar Beaumont

Join us today, Monday 6th December 2021 at 2pm SLT in our beautiful studio in Garden of Dreams as we journey back into the past for an episode first shown in January 2012, when we explored the world of the spectacular ChangHigh Sisters – a performing arts troupe who are well-known to this day throughout Second Life, where their popular performances draw significant audiences.

You can watch the episode on this blog, and you can also see it on the Designing Worlds Vimeo channel at https://vimeo.com/171900078 and you can join the special Watch Party at 2pm SLT in our studio on Garden of Dreams.

Elrik and Saffia try some of the Sisters’ acrobatic poses themselves, and discover a little of the deep spiritual and esoteric background behind the ChangHigh Sisters’ Fireshow of Light, Life & Love.

The programme culminates with the Sisters’ unique show – staged especially for Designing Worlds – of stunning acrobatics with fire and dazzling colours, including inspiring narration and music from leading in-world and RL composers and musicians.

So join us at 2pm SLT by tuning in or by coming to the Watch Party in Garden of Dreams to see a spectacular show – and to learn more of the wonderful creative people behind it!
