SL16B Second Life

I was invited to … SL16B!

As known, SL16B is the important anniversary with we celebrate the birthday of Second Life. In 2019, it turns 16 years old. It is a sumptuous event that involves several exhibitors, musicians, traders, and volunteers. Today I tell you how I was involved in this (important) event.

If you don’t know Second Life, start with this video Tutorial.

I never made a post about an event of any kind in SL. It has been a few years now that I have “specialized” in the artistic sector, also dealing with different themes, but never of a commercial nature or particular occasions. That’s why, when I received the Berry IM (Strawberry Singh) that invited me as blogger, I was both happy and surprised. Writing about this event is an unmissable opportunity to encourage me to broaden my horizons that, for some years, have been fossilized on the same issues. Furthermore, having received an invitation from Berry, whom I have esteemed and followed for many years, makes me even more willing to test myself with new topics.

SL16B – History

When celebrating a birthday, it is reasonable to retrace the history of the person being dedicated. In this case, we briefly review the history of SL also because, to understand where we are going, we must remember where we came from.

SL was born for the public on June 23rd, 2003. Since 2003 the innovations within the virtual Linden platform have been many, starting from the construction methods that led to the mesh up to the animation methods that led to the Animesh. Also, the ways of interaction between people, the practices of purchase, the types of events organized have changed considerably. In 2003 I was not in SL; I lost a significant part, namely that of birth and its maximum expansion (2007). However, I can say that, in these seven years of SL, I have seen many things changing. To give an example, when I entered SL, people bought items on the Marketplace, or they went directly to single creator’s inworld shop (I saved the LM in my inventory!). Today people buy and know creators during events, some of which are famous and renowned because they only accept stores produce “original mesh“.
Furthermore, an essential role in the promotion of events and shops is played by fashion bloggers, followed for their ability to match outfits from different stores tastefully and because in the credits they indicate in detail how to find the clothes proposed in their beautiful photographs. An example for all was Strawberry Singh, the SL influencer. In addition to Berry, Mia Reebane is a high-level fashion blogger and has a significant number of followers (including me). Virtual photography has exploded, as one can easily see from a large number of images shared by SL users on Flickr (I confess that, in some cases, I am impressed by the creative ability of some photographers!).

SL16B – The dates

The event which we celebrate SL’s birthday with this year will start from June 20th to July 8th, 2019. Applications for volunteers, artists, and exhibitors are now closed.

SL16B – The theme

Every year the LL proposes a theme that is a beacon for exhibitors and to which they adhere to their creations. Last year the idea was the “Crystal,” this year the theme is “Sweet Sixteen – 50s“. The post which LL announces the imminence of the SL16B with is interesting because it highlights the similarities between the 1950s and SL. The 1950s were a period of innovation, rebellion, creation, freedom, and a will to live. SL is an expression of all these aspects; in fact, it was born allowing people to express their creativity without limits (if not technical ones, based on current technological knowledge).

SL16B – Gifts

The event will be an opportunity to take original and hard to find gifts elsewhere. In particular, I advise you not to miss Swaginator because gifts are easy to get!

SL16B – The Community

On the SL Community, you can find a lot of information and be updated on the evolution of events.

Applications are Now Open for SL16B Volunteers, Performers and Exhibitors!
