Quick Outing to Pandora Resort!

Train Station

When you arrive at Pandora Resort, the mist (or is that smoke?) cloaks you like a blanket. Everything is so obscured.

Group Gift from 7 Deadly s{K}ins!

The skin Gwyneth’s wearing is the January Group Gift from 7 Deadly s{K}ins. There is a price to join the group (L$225), but this skin comes with a ton of appliers, including Omega head appliers, so you can apply it to any head that takes Omega. This is the Catwa Catya Bento mesh head, and I think it looks beautiful. This hair is new from No Match; it’ll be at Hairology, which opens on the 10th of January. The style is called No Fiction.

Taking a break from working on the sim, which makes poor Gwyneth very tired, was in the cards today, and stepping into the nostalgic world of Pandora Resort was just the ticket.

Town Square

Once you get into the town proper, the mist still hangs over, so thick it obscures pretty much everything. It’s sometimes hard to tell the birds wheeling round the central fountain from the falling snowflakes, and the buildings and lamps have an extra glow to them that adds to the ambiance.

A moment of contemplation

I guess one of the things I love about visiting great sims in Second Life is just experiencing the multitude of fascinating ideas that can be brought to life in our big pixel world. From untouched wilderness to avant-garde art pieces, we’ve got it all. I’m often amazed by the sheer amount of work and care that goes in to all the beautiful builds I visit. SL tourism has been a hobby of mine since way back in 2007 or so when Avalon and I used to go around in search of various Stonehenges in all sizes and levels of repair. Perhaps I’ll revisit that one day and do a tour of prominent Second Life Stonehenges sometime. Gwyneth does love standing stones, after all!

Further in to the sim, shops and a delivery tricycle!

Further in to the sim, there are parks, residential areas, a Christmas tree lot, and some beautiful spaces that can be hired out for weddings and other functions. While there were a few informational averts up in the train station area, the sim is otherwise completely bereft of anything commercial, aside from small signs around the for-hire areas. If you haven’t been to Pandora Resort, it’s worth a visit. It’s on the SL Destination Guide at the moment, under Editor’s Picks.

In the end, I wished I could have stayed longer. There was a lot to see, and I love a foggy, misty landscape. But I had to spend much of the day in Real Life, so Gwyneth and I headed back to the affectionately named Ook Office in Awenia, and that was that. I have some more places I want to show you around soonish, though, and I know Gwyneth will appreciate any breaks I give her from ordering people around on the sim platform in Awenia.
