Meet the prize designers: Pixel Mode

Being a big Downton Abbey fan, I was terribly excited with one of our prizes for The Interview 2 – a gorgeous servant’s bell set from Pixel Mode.  Exquisitely detailed, it made me come over all ‘Lady Mary’, and provided the perfect motivation for me to get off my behind and complete the game.  As you will…

Meet the prize designers: Sway’s

Sometimes a store makes you feel like a child again, piggy-bank clenched in a grubby little fist, wide-eyed and full of excitement at the prospective shopping adventure.  That’s a bit like it feels when entering Sway’s, the fabulous furnishing and accessory shop for “home, hobby and more”.  The creative genius behind this excitement is Sway Dench, who…

Meet The Interview prize designers: Spellbound

Yes, it’s time to turn the spotlight on our lovely prize designers and this time it’s Spellbound.  If you are looking for enchanting hair of the cute and witchy variety, it’s totally worth checking out.  But don’t get me wrong, you won’t find any newt’s eyes or bat’s tongues in these creations.  This is NOT hair for…

Meet the Interview prize designers: Balaclava!!

I love a good spree.  You know those occasions where you have a bit of time and a few lindens and absolutely nothing better to do than indulge yourself?  Just like avocados, lazy Sunday brunches and Kylie Minogue, you don’t HAVE to have them in your life, but they make the world a little bit…

Lost Treasure of the Inca Warrior: Hear what our VIPs said!

Still not sure whether to try our new game, Lost Treasure of the Inca Warrior?  Your intrepid correspondent braved the caves to ask some of our early access VIPs what they REALLY thought of their experience. Thalia Lupindo was one of the first courageous souls venturing into the unknown.  A big Lara Croft (Tomb Raider)…

Meet the prize designers: Noodles

When they said to me “blog about noodles” I thought I was going to chow mein heaven.  Little did I understand that they had something EVEN BETTER than tasty Chinese noms in mind!  Yep, I’m talking about Noodles, one of the best jewellery and accessory stores on the Second Life grid. Noodles burst onto the…

Meet The Interview prize designers: Plastik

What do you get if you take a Second Life store, add two drops of Alice in Wonderland, mix it with a pinch of Lord of the Rings, stir in a splash of Avatar and dust the whole lot with a generous sprinkle of Willow?  Why, you get Plastik! Plastik owner Vae (Aikea Reiko) has created a verdant fantasy land around…

Meet The Interview prize designers: junk.

So I’m English and, with apologies to the Egyptians, Romans, Greeks, Mesopotamians, etc., etc., we practically invented old stuff.  That is probably why I love junk. so much.  Selling a range of top-quality original mesh furniture, buildings, décor and what my mother calls ‘knick-knacks’, Tab Tatham’s amazing sim is THE place to go for shabby chic….

Meet the Interview prize creators: LaViere and Tee*fy

I have a small confession to make, but we are all friends here, right?  I LOVED LaViere and Tee*fy long before the Interview game had even started, so this post might be a little bit biased… Some of you may also know the brand from high-profile shopping events, so we are very proud to have…
