Over 1 million raised for InWorldz Fashion Fair 2012


Over 1 million (I’z) has been raised for the first InWorldz Fashion Fair 2012 and yesterday marked the last day for the event. The first fashion fair was a big success and very interesting indeed. I spent most of my time looking around the 4 event sims and took many snapshots on my travels.

The closing party was yesterday (26th August 2012) and apparently I heard it was very entertaining. On Friday 31st August 2012 at 12pm PDT there will be a special Pink Friday event celebrating the 1 million+ Iz milestone. The InWorldz founder Tranquility Dexler will wear pink to mark this special occasion. DJs Jim Tarber & Cataplexia Numbers, The InStyles Models will be celebrating as cheerleaders apparently.

I would like to say special thanks to the IW Fashion Fair core team & volunteers etc for making this wonderful successful event happen InWorldz and I’m sure there will be more fashion fairs in near future. 🙂

My visit to Firestorm Support Region


Yesterday on 25th August 2012 the new resident supported Firestorm Support Region opened to all Second Life users. The Firestorm Support Region is a nice updated walkthrough tutorial of the basics of Second Life and the Firestorm viewer. This is the first time a third party viewer team have created a support region for it’s userbase I think.

The Firestorm Support Region is only used for those that need help with all things Firestorm. It’s not being used as a hangout place apparently and that’s understandable. I went to visit the region and I was very impressed indeed. Members of the Resident Help Network have joined this effort. Teleport to Firestorm Support Region.

Visit today and enjoy the new user experience of Firestorm.

InWorldz RFL 2012 Kick Off Press Release


The RFL InWorldz team have released the kick off press release for the upcoming first official season. I am excited about the first RFL InWorldz season and I believe it’s going to be a big success. Full press release below!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
COMMUNITY TO UNITE TO FIGHT CANCER
American Cancer Society Relay For Life of InWorldz Kicks Off
InWorldz community members will unite at a rally to officially launch their First Relay
For Life season. Hundreds of participants will ring in the new season with a rally that
educates everyone on how their involvement benefits the American Cancer Society’s
goal to save lives and create more birthdays. Money raised will fight cancer by helping
people stay well and get well, by finding cures, and by fighting back.
Relay for Life Kicks Off its official drive on August 25th on Dreamscapes of Poseidon.


Come join us, as we meet the American Cancer Society representative. Come be inspired
by Dj KyFire Oakleaf’s library of originals created by Relayers, survivors, caregivers
and loved ones of those who fight, fought and will fight this courageous battle we all do.

Come rally hard with us to begin a campaign we will not lose.

The American Cancer Society Relay For Life is an overnight community celebration
where individuals and teams camp out, picnic, dance, play games and take turns circling
around a track “relay” style to raise funds and fight cancer. The event opens as cancer
survivors lead the way around the track and are honored with the Survivor Lap.
As the sun begins to set, the warm glow of hundreds of luminaria light the field in an emotional silent ceremony. Each bag lit is in honor of a loved one who won the fight against cancer or in remembrance of a special someone who lost their battle.
The American Cancer Society Relay For Life represents hope in that those lost to cancer
will not be forgotten, that those who face cancer will be supported, and that one day,
cancer will be eliminated.

Started in 1985, Relay For Life began with one man who circled around a track for 24
hours raising $27,000. This year, Relay For Life has grown to more than 6,100
communities and over 25 countries worldwide.

65 days to go until BURN2 2012


There are 65 days left to go until the grand opening of BURN2 2012 in Second Life and this year there will be four regions to celebrate the SL community supported BURN2 festival. Every year the SL burning man festival gets bigger and better with more avatars attending the amazing events. This year BURN2 will open from 20th to 28th October 2012 which is going to be fantastic hopefully. The theme for BURN2 2012 is Fertility. 

BURN2 has always been one of my favourite SL events to attend every year because its really exciting and creative. In previous years I have enjoyed being a BURN2 stage manager and gate greeter. 🙂

BURN2 Donated Progress 2012 so far

Visit Burning Man- Deep Hole region today for the latest BURN2 inworld resources which can be found at the infohub below.

Recently there was a BURN2 townhall meeting and here are the notes below…

For those of you who weren’t able to make it to the Town Hall meeting on the 11th of August, here’s the skinny!

This year our event — the only Burning Man Regional Event that is allowed to burn the man — will be held from the 20th to 28th of October. 

Expect to see all the events you’ve come accustomed to, building on the playa before the event, and even BURN2 only activities like the Skin Burn! We’ll even be having some great workshops leading up to the event, including a porta potty building workshop on Sunday, the 19th of August at 5:00 p.m. SLT!

This years theme? After much discussion, we’re proud to announce that the community sought to remain aligned with the theme of the big burn in Black Rock City: our theme is Fertility!

For 2012, we are offering four regions, with 61 camp parcels for sale and an additional 34 parcels to be given away. We’re also inviting four artists to the event: watch for more information on the artists we’ve invited soon. 

We have eight art parcels we’ll be giving away specifically for juried art: three 2048m parcels and five 1024m parcels. Additionally, five 1024m juried theme camps are being offered. If you want to apply for one of these, please visit the juried art and theme camp submission form.

We’re very excited about parcel pricing this year. We applied over US$2,400.00 in donations to help reduce the cost of parcels. The prices for this year’s Burn2 parcels is as follows:

  • 4096m camps (with 936 prims) are L$14,000
  • 2048m camps (with 468 prims) are L$7,000
  • 1024m camps (with 234 prims) are L$3,500

Parcels are available RIGHT NOW in Burning Man- Deep Hole.

There is also a lottery for 17 512m camp plots. Donate L$10 to enter the lottery. Only one entry per person, please, and these parcels can not be transferred nor sold.

Finally, as always, we’re always blessed with your time. If you wish to volunteer as a greeter, a guide, a translator, or other needs, Check in at the volunteer signup form. If you’re a DJ or a live performer who is interested in performing at the event, please contact Buttermilk Panacek!
