Simploring 2019 (94) Silly by Cica Chost at Yasminia

Sunday, September 8th, I got an invitation to visit Cica Ghost newest installation called “Silly”. I visited right away. The first thing though that caught my attention was the name of the sim where Silly is located: Yasminia!

I connect a lot with this sim. It was the homeplace of Yasmin’s brat pack, the family of my first owner Yasmin Heartsdale. It was the place where I spend most of my time in 2011 and 2012, a place with which I associate many fond memories and many friends. That Yasminia is long gone and I revisted another Yasminia in 2016, when it was a pastoral peaceful place. I wrote a blogpost about my visit in 2016 and added also links and a picture of the first Yasminia here: https://themaurers.me/2016/09/16/yasminia-2/

And now Yasminia is the place where Cica built Silly! What a coincidence!

Silly by Cica Ghost is great fun. Those who are familiar with Cica’s art and her animals and beings, sense Cica’s humor at once. The environment is kept in green, blue, purple and yellow. Huge mushrooms provide some shadows, at the corners are huge (green) cooling towers (well, that’s what these objects looked like to me *winks), there’s a lake and there are many of Cica-ish huge animals and beings with their big eyes. They are looking at the visitors with curiosity and as always, they are peaceful and bear with the visitors.

Impressions of Silly by Cica Ghost (1)

Instead of flowers, arms and feet grow out of the ground, they wave and move up and down, just as if humans would live under the surface, some of them sticking their arms trough the ground to feel how it is outside and others as if they are stuck in the ground upside down and stick their feet out. Silly .. and funny.

At Silly by Cica Ghost you can be childish or simply have fun. You can grab a gift, a purple bug, sit on it and fly around. You can sit on some of Cica’s beings. For that just hoover your mouse over the boxes which you find close to some of them. But be careful, some of these boxes are traps and you vanish in them, just your feet stick out, so that you can be a part of the above mentioned feet and hands sticking out of the ground. I had fun!

There’s a lot more to discover or to look at, like the butterflies that fly around. Or you “sit” on the big Cica-being which lives on a seperate island next to one of the cooling towers (the one that is shown on Cica’s invitation card). Or you watch the Cica octopussy who lives in the lake. As always, Cica provided also a short idea in the landmark’s description:
Q: What is a cat’s favorite color?
A: PURRRR-ple.

Silly by Cica Ghost is what the name implies – silly. For me one of her best installations. I had great fun. Thank you Cica!
