Simploring 2020 (78) Midnight in Paris

Once again I picked my simploring destination for Wednesday, November 4th, from scoop.it SL Desinations. The entry for Midnight in Paris caught my eye. It led to post of Inara Pey “Midnight in Paris in Second Life” and after reading it, I decided to visit myself.

Midnight in Paris is a homestead, rated general, owned and created by Billie (littlesquaw). Billie is also the creaotr of BKLYN, a place I visited in April 2020 (read Simploring 2020 (32) BKLYN). This time Billie selected Paris at night for her town scene. In order to see it properly you should use the preset windlight and switch advanced ligting on.

The landing is inside of a houseboat on the river Seine. You step outside and WOW – what a view. Billie has created a quite realistic night scene of Paris. I was overwhelmed immediately.

I began to explore and left the boat, I crossed the bridge and it was raining. My latex dress and the overknee booty was once the right outfit for simploring! Billie selected the light very smart and you can see the reflections on the puddle on the street. There are also some static figures on the streets to liven up the scenery.

I went seeing the louvre with the Eiffel Tower in the background. I really got the feeling of being in Paris, a town that I have visited back in 2014 the last time in the physcial world.

But there’s more to see at Midnight in Paris, not just the Louvre, the Eiffel Tower and the promenade along the river Seine. Behind a Bistro there’s a passage leading to a cul-de-sac road. And that is designed really well, almost perfect. There are so many little details to discover, be it the graffiti at the wall, the different stores, signs, bicycles, garbage tons, a chair, the illumination above the street, etc.

After a while I returned to the promenade and found way more scenes and places to take pictures.

What a great place to immerse yourself into Paris at night! And what a great place for taking pictures in Second Life. I had a great time. And I was and I still am impressed of Billie (littlesquaw)’s work. Thank you for creating Midnight in Paris, Billie, and for sharing it with the public.
