When you dream

One of the joys of Second Life is allowing us to inhabit parallel lives, the lives we dreamed in our youth. Like many of you, I dreamed of all sorts of “when I grow up” scenarios. Mostly I said I wanted to be an archeologist when I grew up, but there were times when I declared my intent for president, supreme court justice, artist and dancer. Of course, I did grow up to inhabit none of these dreams, finding instead my adult dream as a political activist. I am happy with my adult dreams and only feel a faint nostalgic wistfulness for my childhood dreams. How fun it is, though, to live those dreams as an avatar. This season’s offerings from The Arcade are really the stuff dreams are made of.


U.F.O. really lived up to its name, Ur Favorite One, this Arcade season. I kind of imagine that gacha being clicked so often and so fast it spontaneously combusts. She put together some lovely ballerina gowns and ballet shoes (with a color change HUD) with several absolutely mandatory accessories such a ballet-centric artwork and furnishings that coordinate beautifully.


One of the things that always pleases me about showcase events like The Arcade or Collabor88 is the way items from different stores work together – perhaps not as the creators intended, but in ways beautiful and strange.


The delicate femininity of the Glam Affair skin, the romantic sweetness of the Truth hair and the lush opulence of the Yummy rings are all very different but still cohesive.


And that look extends to the furnishings and the skybox and pretty much everything you can think of. I call in serendipity, some might call it luck, but it certainly is what dreams are made of.
