In this episode, brought to you from a special studio constructed for us by Eliza Weirwight of Patron, we take a look at some outstanding winter locations in Second Life.

DW388 – SL Winter Places 2018 from Richard Elen on Vimeo.

We talk to Eliza herself and look at some of her special seasonal products at the Patron store; we talk to Kess Viiperi about her winter landscaping vlogging (as she demonstrates how to create a wonderful wintry landscape of your own – you can see her decorating video in full here); and we meet up with Tymus Tenk of Calas Galadhon and take a detailed tour of their winter regions. You’ll be amazed at the changes since our last show there, when we visited for Halloween!
