Etosha Romantic Dance Paradise

Etosha

Etosha is a romantic open air ballroom, where you are able to look up and gaze at the stars. How romantic is that! It is set in an African, tropical paradise. The owners are Alex (Alex0075) and Bridgette (Bridgette Dalgleish) Etosha. Every time I have been there, I have seen them dancing the night away. They are a very friendly couple and I am always warmly welcomed. The evening can be started by taking a self-guided Venetian Gondola ride through the jungle, and there is also a self-guided balloon tour if you would like to explore from above.

I had a chat to Alex and he told me that Etosha was formed on the 15th October 2015. This happened after Alex got banned from the club that him and Bridget were frequenting and saw as their home club after the two of them met. They began their search for another romantic dance place to spend time together. After searching and not finding what they were looking for, they decided to start their own dance spot on the homestead that they owned. They were enjoying the place so much that they decided that they would love to be able to share it with other people, and this is how Etosha was born. Alex and Bridget had given themselves the name Etosha from the moment that they met. Etosha is a huge game reserve in Namibia in real life, they decided to use this African theme, and they added animals and gave it a beautiful tropical environment.

Bridget built the building with the dance floor, and Alex added all the plants, trees and animals. He bought the gondola and made the river. It is on this river that you can take the gondola ride.

After having the club for a while, they started getting very frustrated because it seemed that no one was coming; at that stage they were using DJ’s and live singers. They then decided to get their own stream, and now they they have the stream playing there. Bridget added all the songs. Eventually people started coming, and now they have between 400 and 600 people visiting Etosha on a daily basis. On the 04 November 2018 they had 530 visitors. They chose some of the best and most romantic dances for the intan that you can find in SL.

They also have dance pads which are very popular for the singles to dance on.

Alex’s philosophy about a successful club ‘is to have a beautiful venue where people feel themselves at home, and want to stay with beautiful music which is pleasant to listen to.’

Etosha has a wonderful atmosphere and the people are friendly. It is a great place to meet and make friends. So if you feel like you would like a nice chat or dance, hop on over. I would recommend this place for singles and couples. Etosha is pg rated.

The music is slow and romantic, and there are some private dance and cuddle spots if you would prefer to slip off and have some quiet time.

Dress:

The guests of Etosha are to dress appropriately, as the club is strictly pg rated. Appropriate to them means that all vital body parts are covered. That does not mean that you can’t wear any sexy clothes, but they need to be tasteful.

Wedding Venue:

Ethosha is also a wedding venue and they provide the whole package. Alex does the ceremony, as he has done theological studies in rl. Bridget is a professional photographer and she built a beautiful wedding venue. They will also arrange a DJ for the party.

Halloween Sims

Halloween is almost upon us and there are lots of spooky sims to explore. Here are some that I would recommend that you go and see before the month ends.

Red’s Haunted Mainland Tour

Red Fire (robinleia)’s haunted tour is a must see, with spooks, zombies and monsters galore; and Kraken … which is a ‘have to take a ride on’ roller-coaster. Must admit that we went more than once.

The tour includes a maniac with a chain saw, a swamp, the asylum, the graveyard and the haunted mansion and even more in between. Be prepared to get your fright on, and maybe even take a chill pill before you head on out. The tour is best viewed at Midnight, so have your sound up high to get the full experience.

Come to my Haunted House

Here is a photo, taken by Red, she is bravely sitting in her haunted house, waiting and watching.  She is a fantastic SL photographer, and she has been so kind and helpful.  I am so grateful to her, as she used lots of her valuable time giving me some pointers on SL photography. As you can probably tell, my photos still are nowhere near her high quality standard.

For more of her beautiful photo’s have a look at her flickr page : Red Fire’s flickr page

I chatted to Red, and she told me this about herself , ‘Red Fire (robinleia): I build sets and choreograph dances..I work with a dance team and we do shows in SL. I also work in the concert circuit doing performances. These are avi performances, not live singing.’, but she is planning on singing live some time in the future.

She certainly is a very talented person.

Broom to get there: Red’s Haunted Mainland Tour

Ironwood hills Haunting 2018

Ironwood Hills is an experience event, where you are armed with your flashlight and a tablet.

Upon arrival, start with poking the ghost that’s standing outside the church, you will be given a folder containing a flashlight, the HUD, and a notecard. Wear the HUD and accept the experience key. If you do not allow the experience the game may not run correctly (I have done this many times and have never been hacked, it is completely safe). Read the first page on the tablet/HUD and walk into the church toward the coffin.

Then the adventure begins. Your tablet (HUD) is the key to discovering clues and seeing your progress through the story. There is a group that you can join and this can be useful if you get stuck.

Once you have completed the game you return to the start area and there you can collect your prizes, these have been contributed by some amazing designers. These prizes are available even if you haven’t done the game … but you are missing out on lots of fun!!

Searching for toilet roll in Octoberville

So let’s start from my feet and move up

Gift #4

Octoberville Shirt, Men’s and woman’s size

Is my Octoberville shirt which I am really proud of. You can find it at Octoberville, which is an event I blogged about a few weeks ago. Have a look at the post here. When you arrive at the sim you will be given a folder that contains a HUD and this needs to be worn. The shirt is in a chest that is hidden somewhere on the sim. If you can’t find it, maybe go and have a drink and think about where this could possibly be. When you find the chest you will be asked a question. The answer can be found by looking through http://www.Octoberville.com blog post. (Or if you are really stuck, contact me and I will give you some clues).

Taxi:  Octoberville 2018

Gift #5

Truth Hair October group gift

Truths VIP gift for October is this really Batty hair style, and that’s just what it is called … Batty. Just perfect for Halloween. The Truth group costs 350L to join but worth it as all VIP’s get free hair every month, and all hair comes with all colours and as you can see in the photo many different styles with each.  I chose a really wacked out style to fit in with my shirt and Octoberville.  You are able to choose different colours for the left and right. The bat colour can also be changed.

Free Altramura mesh body at Brazil for Men and Women

Hello Terrific people

Getting started in SL can be quite a challenge if you have 0 Lindens and not sure where to begin. The current trend in SL is to have a bento mesh body and mesh head. This can cost a pretty penny and most newbies, (and others) are not certain that paying real money is worth the cost of looking good in pixels. This blog is about freebies, group gifts and help for new SL residents, Newbies or Noobs are they are called too. I hope that this will help the older SL residents that would like to try out mesh.

I have found a couple of freebie places in SL that are perfect for newbies who are wanting to sort out their avatars with 0 Lindens. New Resident Island is for the classic avis, and here you can get a good start. Here is a layout of the Island and all they offer.

Ajuda Brazil SL has everything you need to get started in SL, with a newer feel. Clothing, shoes, hair, full avatars etc. I stumbled along this sim when trying to assist a new SL resident that wanted to sort out his avi. Personally I find this a daunting task, and it takes me hours, (unlike my bestie Gina who has the knack for finding great deals and is able to take a new avi from zero to hero quickly.)

If you are wanting to jump straight into mesh, Atamura has free Men’s and Women’s Mesh Bodies, including a mesh head at Ajuda Brazil SL;.this is a really generous gift. The woman’s mesh body is called Valentina, and Maitreya clothing seems to fit nicely. The men’s mesh gift is called Max. Please don’t arrive there naked cause you will get banned.

Altamura’s Valentina gift comes with the following in the folder:

If you are able to scrounge 50$L together you can join the Altamura Group and they have quite a few group gifts scattered around the shop, then you will have a few mesh bodies and heads to play with, it’s well worth joining the group.

I will be blogging soon about how to make lindens in SL soon, so look out for that.

Teleport to Altamura

Let me know how it goes and if you stumble across anything that can help others please leave a comment below.

Keeping it terrific in SL

Escape Room – The Cabin

29702194427_228b2fd220_o

 

The Cabin stands alone on a quiet street. Is it fate that your car breaks down outside or is it some unsuspecting evil force?  It turns out that your cell phone has no signal and the only solution is to seek for help inside. It takes courage to approach the house and knock on the door.  Peering inside you see a phone and relief washes over you. Help it seems is only a phone call away. When you get no answer to the knock on the door, you try the door and find it open.  Looking around to make sure no one is watching you step inside making your way to the phone. Raising the phone to your ear, you discover that it is dead and it’s at this point that the door slams.  Dropping the phone and rushing to door you find that you are locked in with no chance of escape. Will you be able to solve the mystery of the cabin and free yourself?

The Cabin is one of Mad Pea newest interactive ‘The Escape Room’ games.  . When touching the door you are given a HUD to wear, which monitors your progress, and you will be prompted to allow experiences; this is completely safe to do.  Once inside you have an hour to solve the mystery and escape. I must admit it’s a great help to do this with friends, but the nice thing is that if you don’t manage it in an hour you are able to try again and again and again ….

Cost : 0$L

Teleport:

MadPea’s new escape room, the Cabin. Can you escape the cabin after your car broke down outside?

Or

Mad Pea World = The Cabin

This is one of Mad Peas take home games and the whole game can be purchased and rezzed on your land.  Cost to purchase the whole build costs 1999L$.  This can be purchased from the MarketPlace or at MadPea’s main store.

Read about all the details on the mad pea website.

Go and have fun and be terrific
