Art in Second Life 2020 (71) Bridge by Cica Ghost

Thursday night, November 5th, I got an invitation from Cica Ghost to visit her newest installation “Bridge“. I went there Friday, November 6th.

It takes both sides to build a bridge” is the thought that Cica gives us on our way visiting. This time Cica’s installation has a clear message, that is also expressed in this thought. You can easily see this message when you stand on the landing point and zoom out.

Impressions of “Bridge by Cica Ghost” (1)

You see two Cica-ish villages. Both are built on high plateaus with steep slopes. These two villages look alike on a first view and in particlar looking at them from farer away. The villages are connected by a bridge. In the valley between the two villages lives a huge dragon who looks down at the two village. Beside the two village and the dragon there’s a languet with a single tree.

I went exploring the first village and form some elements that made me smile as they are so “Cica-ish”, the girl with the cat drawn at one wall, or the car drawn on another wall. Flowers and flowerbeds decorate the courts, there’re opportunities to sit and watch.

Impressions of “Bridge by Cica Ghost” (2)

I went over the bridge and visited the other village, that looked alike in the first view. But the houses have more and bigger windows. There are 3 cars, Cica mobiles, that you can either use on the installation or purchase for your own plot. I tried driving one but it is very difficult in the narrow roads. You find some of Cica’s cats strolling around the village, hence I didn’t have to search “the one” cat. For me it seems as if the inhabitants of the second village a slightly more wealthy and live a little bit different.

Impressions of “Bridge by Cica Ghost” (3)

Both hills, both villages, have an access to the valley. Form the first village there’s one not that steep way down, from the second village there’s a stair leading down. I went down to the valley and found not only the dragon down there (or more it’s feet). There’re also two sheeps, a black and a white one – another strong symbol. Far outside on the languet with a single tree you can sit on a swing and overlook the scene. But sitting there outside you’re quite alone and if the dragon would be dangerous ….. no way to get to the villages.

Impressions of “Bridge by Cica Ghost” (4)

It takes both sides to build a bridge“, a bridge to connect people. Particular in this day and age where not only in the US the division of the society progresses more and more, it needs a bridge to reconnect people and to overcome the division.

I enjoyed my visit to Bridges by Cica Ghost and despite the serious message of this installation I had fun seeing the world with kids eyes and looking at the “Cica-ish” objects, houses, flowers, graffiti and animals. Thank you Cica!

Diary 2020 (144) October 12th – 14th A Yellow Light

I met with Mistress on Monday, October 12th, in the afternoon. Mistress was at BDSM Lifestyle Swingers Club where I joined her and Ann. We both had an offline message from slave Flo who had sent a sign of life. She is going through hard times in her RL. slave Flo told us that she won’t be in a kinky mood, when coming inworld. Of course we will respect that.
Mistress and I caught up with our other mutual news, we chatted and had fun watching other people at the club. Mistress and I are both wearing corsets and Mistress holds the keys for my corset and I hold the keys for her corset. The corsets have a training mode. To tie them tighter it is necessary to wear them for a certain time before. Mistress’ goal is to get the training done before we unlock them. In addition we were still wearing our elegance collars with the keys out – hoping to find some trouble. Is that really a red light for me? Sure, Mistress is supervising all and in control but she is always in control anyway. As I hold her corset keys and as we both try to find some trouble this red light is a mix of a green and a red light. What do you get when you mix green and red – a yellow light. Hence the title of this diary entry: “A Yellow Light” *winks*

October 12th: Mistress Jenny and Diomita at BDSM Lifestyle Swingers Club with Ann

We stayed about an hour and then returned home to tend to our RL.

We met with Angelique and Flo at night and chatted at home, then Angelique had to go off. We played two rounds of greedy with Flo, then went to Mesmerize Dungeon and watched the almost silent crowd. Well a bit was actually going on but not much. Flo left quite early and Mistress Jenny and I moved on to BDSM Lifestyle Swingers Club for a bit. Of course none took our keys and of course we didn’t get into any trouble. As Mistress had an early start the next day, we went home quite early.

Tuesday, October 13th, Mistress was prevented from coming inworld during the day. I used some free time in the afternoon to visit another exhibtion and to write in the blog.
Our night – “under a yellow light” was once gain quiet and relaxed. slave Flo was inworld. She still has a lot of worries in RL and just seeked a bit distraction. We had a game of skipee with her (she won it :-)). That took a while but the game was close in the end and hence it was entertaining. We went to BDSM Lifstyle Swingers Club with Flo and watched the people coming and going for a while until it was time for Flo to retreat.

Mistress and I went to Puerto Esclava for a quarter of an hour, then Mistress had to go to bed due to an early start the next day again.

Wednesday, October 14th, Mistress and I were both prevented from coming inworld during the day. When we came online at night slave Flo was present and cleaning the house. I had an invitation from Cica Ghost, who had opened her newest installation “Halloween by Cica Ghost“. As slave Flo is still not in a kinky mood, why not visit there together. So we all went seeing Cica’s installation. And it was fun as always! Read more about itin this blog here.
When we returned home, slave Melissa and Ann were present and we first chatted about the new chastity belt Ann was wearing. It’s from DHB and looks quite real, snug and cruel. We discussed about the maker of it in RL and Mistress and I noticed that Flo was extremely intrigued by it … christmas is not that far away anymore *winks.
We went to BDSM Lifestyle Swingers Club with the slaves next. When slave Flo had to leave for bed we moved on to Mesmerize Dungeon with slave Melissa where Argi joined us. Being with Argi is always quite entertaining and soon it was time to call it a night for us.

Art in Second Life 2020 (66) Halloween by Cica

Every Day is Halloween, isn’t it? For some of us” (Tim Burton)
This is the quote that Cica Ghost provides to us opening her newest installation “Halloween by Cica Ghost” yesterday, October 14th.

Yesterday night, when I came inworld, I had Cica’s invitation in my mailbox. Instead of playing a game or standing around in one of our clubs, I took Mistress and Flo with me and we visited “Halloween by Cica Ghost” together.

Halloween by Cica Ghost” is best experienced using the preset windlight and turning on advanced lighting with shadows of sun+projector. The arrival is in a half opened giant snail shell on a hill. You have a quite good view on Cica’s world from there. You see some dead bare trees, spiderwebs, a carriage, some typical “Cica-ish” houses in the background, some flowerbeds with black stems. The world is grey and bleak.

Impressions of “Halloween by Cica Ghost” (1)

We entered Cica’s world. I tried to sit in the carriage first as I thoughr it would be a “Cica-mobil” but it wasn’t. It’s just a part of this world. There are quite some of Cica’s figures living in this world and they all are worth to look at in detail. The blooms in the flowerbeds turn out to be stars, spiders or bats. You see some quite big crows. Flo sat down on one of them and made a selfie. And of course there’re a lot of pumpkins as you would expect on Halloween.

Impressions of “Halloween by Cica Ghost” (2)

The installation is full of details, on one wall you find a “cica-ish” drawing. It conjured a smile in my face seeing the odd couple selling ice cream. You will find a giant Cica-spider, an animal that I haven’t seen before from Cica, but you also find a giant snail, which I hadn’t expected in a Halloween installation.

Impressions of “Halloween by Cica Ghost” (3)

We had fun exploring. We found a place to dance and I turned on the sound and heard – no surprise – scary sounds. “Halloween by Cica Ghost” has everything of Halloween: crows, spiders, pumkins, spiderwebs, bats, witch houses, graveyards, tombstones, odd people, bare trees, dark clouds. Cica plays with all clichés in a funny way. Mistress and I looked a bit bizarre with our fetish clothes in this world.

Impressions of “Halloween by Cica Ghost” (4)

Anthing else? Oh yes! There’s no just one cat hidden at “Halloween by Cica Ghost“, I saw 5 cats. A boy sitting on a bench is stroking a cat, three others are stanging together close by and another is close to a witch-house. But there might be even more.

Impressions of “Halloween by Cica Ghost” (5)

Halloween by Cica Ghost” is just lovely and perfect for a time-out. You can get away from it all and immerse yourself in a child’s world, you can enjoy the oddities and approach all the scary things and symbols of Halloween with curiosity in a playful way. Thank you, Cica!

Art in Second Life 2020 (49) Monsters by Cica Ghost

When I returned from my short off time, I found an invitation from Cica Chost in my messages. She had opened a new installation called “Monsters by Cica Ghost” on Friday August 7th.

I went there Saturday late afternoon and met Cica at the landing point next to one of her monsters. As monsters should be, they are all very tall. And in Second Life they are very real, hence the sentence that Cica is giving us on our way exploring: “Monsters are real, ghosts are real too.
You are asked to use the regional windlight (I did) and to switch on advanced lighting with activated shadows from sun/moon and projectors (I did as well).

Impressions of Monsters by Cica Ghost (1)

The monsters are not only really tall, they are ugly on a first view and I didn’t find any two which look alike. I didn’t count them but there must be more than 20 different monsters at least. Some look like dinosaurs, others have their eyes in their tentacles, some have 4 arms and 2 legs, others only legs, some look like octopussies, some have big noses, others a more or less a square face…. What they have in common are the Cica-ish big eyes that roll and seem to watch you. After a while they become your friend and at least I found all of them being nice and peaceful.

Impressions of Monsters by Cica Ghost (2)

Did I mention that they all are very tall? I think I did. If you take a closer look at the pictures that I took you might see me.. I’m the small one at the feet of the monsters *winks*. There are several buildings, or should I say open rooms. They are all built on poles and ladders or ramps lead up to them. In the rooms / or platforms you find scenes. The monsters live in these rooms. One sits on the edge and is fishing, others just look around, and a few listen to a girl that reads in a book. The girl is also very tall.

Impressions of Monsters by Cica Ghost (3)

And what about the cat? I didn’t find it at first and asked Cica if there’s a cat and she confirmed there is a cat and that it is hiding. I won’t reveal where it is but I took a picture and you should easily find it. I didn’t find any Cica-mobil this time, nor any Cica-aircraft, nor did I find any monster where I could sit on (or dance on it’s head). But there are several opportunities to sit and watch, be it a bench close to a monster or a chair in the “rooms”.

Impressions of Monsters by Cica Ghost (4)

Again you can purchase the monsters. There is a big monster shop with all the different types. The ones I looked at cost 350 L and use up 5 prims (at a size of about twice of my own size).
I had fun visiting as always. And as always Cica’s beings made me smile, allowed me an escape from reality into pure fantasy. Thank you Cica!

Impressions of Monsters by Cica Ghost (5)

We never know how long Cica keeps her installations open. It might be 2 weeks .. or 4 .. or longer. You should have a look if you’re up to seeing some monsters.

Art in Second Life 2020 (41) Summertime by Cica Ghost

I got a invitatation to visit “Summertime“, Cica Ghost’s newest installation that opened Friday, July 10th. I was prevented from going there right away, but I found some time today.

The thought that Cica selected for ther newest installation can be found in the landmark description: “Summertime is always the best of what might be. (Charles Bowden)

Summertime by Cica Ghost – landing and overview

I like Cica’s installations as they always succeed to make me smile. This time Cica created happy cows and placed them in a Summer environment. You’re asked to keep the selected windlight, to switch “Advanced Lighting Model” on and to use shadows set to “Sun/Moon + Projectors”.

Impressions of Summertime by Cica Ghost (1)

Summertime is an island with some nice hills, the ground is a bit structured like a chess board, it has green ad dry areas. Spread over the sim are clay objects, some looking like vases of flowers, other like open boxes or even old wagons. Trees and flowers grow in or out the clay objects. They have blossoms in different colours. Yet the all look as if the crave for more water ….

Impressions of Summertime by Cica Ghost (2)

The objects do also provide shadow and if you sit in them on a chair or bed, you’re in the shadow. And there are cows, alone or in groups and they all have the typical Cica-ish look, funny and peacefully and with google-eyes. And you hear their muuuuuh every once in a while. The cows are not the only inhabitants. There’s also a laying battery for chicken, so you can have eggs and milk for your Summer breakfast!

Impressions of Summertime by Cica Ghost (3)

And yes you also find a cat at Summertime! I won’t give away where, but it is not hard to find. What else? A clay helicopter to sit in and to flay around and a clay cinema where you can watch a Cica matchstick figure riding a bicycle. And there’s also a shop where you can purchase a cow (or two or more *winks*)

No attempt to interpret anything – just enjoy Cica’s Summertime!
Thank you, Cica 🙂

Diary 2020 (79) May 30th/31st Zia the dj / News from Puddle Whore

Saturday, May 30th, Mistress Jenny was prevented from getting inworld during the day. I went on a very enjoyable simploring tour in the afternoon and met slave Zia (Ziahon82) upon my return home. Time to get spoiled .. I took slave Zia to our bathroom and allowed her to lick me. She did well *winks*, as it should be. Fully satisfied I took her with me to Mesmerize Dungeon, where we were joined by Robur (Roburion), Scarlett (mswhiplash) and Seu (Suomai). I got interrupted by RL and had to leave soon after though.

May30th: Diomita with slave Zia (Ziahon82) at home and at Mesmerize Dungeon with Robur (Roburion), Scarlett (mswhiplash) and Seu (Suomai)

At night I took Angelique and slave Flo to “The Tavern”, where Zia was the dj for the night, stepping in for someone else. She had tested her equipment at our home the days before. Mistress Jenny and slave Gwendi joined us there and we spent the whole night there, unfortunately without Angelique who crashed and didn’t return. Zia played a nice set of music, very different to Virgo’s style and with more German Rock. We enjoyed the music and dancing and I caught up with Mistress about RL and SL.

May 30th – Zia, dj at The Tavern: Zia (Ziahon82), Mistress Jenny, Diomita, Angelique, slave Flo and slave Gwendi

Anything else? Yes, another report from Puddle whore (formerly known as Kitty Maurer):

Dear Mistress Jenny and Mistress Diomita,
PuddleWhore is learning her place.
PuddleWhore is learning not to speak unless spoken to. That has been really difficult and will likely continue to be so in the future. For better or worse, a giant penis gag is helping PuddleWhore avoid saying things.
PuddleWhore is also learning to be respectful to Mistress Amy and everyone else. PuddleWhore may not simply look at Mistress Amy or others just because PuddleWhore feels like it.
PuddleWhore’s existence is entirely dependent on Mistress Amy’s good will. Drawing her ire might have very bad consequences for PuddleWhore.
For the past days, PuddleWhore has been leashed near the entrance of the house, face down, ass up, with two buzzing dildos exposed to the world, for all to see. Is PuddleWhore an object on display or a storage container for two big dildos?
PuddleWhore is not sure what it is and also isn’t able to think much about it but there is a transformation happening inside PuddleWhore.
xox, PW

Sunday, May 31st, I spent some time inworld in the morning. I had intended to visit Amy (chasititycontroled) and Puddle Whore and it worked out. Both were present and when I came to the Black Widow Estate I found Puddle whore tied up and leash at the entrance of the manor. I took a few pictures but didn’t talk to whore (to tease her even more). Amy was just giving a tour to a visitor and I joined her and her guest. But soon the tour was over and Amy and I began teasing whore.

May 31st: Amy (chasititycontroled) and Diomita with Puddle Whore at Black Widow Estate

Amy offered to showcase Puddle Whore in other bondages and she first tied her up under the ceiling. My only concern was that someone might slip on the puddle that Puddle Whore was beginning to leave on the floor and Amy had no “Caution Wet” warning sign.
Next Amy used Puddle Whore as a wall decoration. I admit I liked this way of using it almost perfect. Puddle Whore was quite well behaved, she has made some notable progresses. We just heard a silent moan here and there. And Amy and I had fun together.

May 31st: Amy (chasititycontroled) and Diomita with Puddle Whore at Black Widow Estate

When Amy had to leave we simply left Puddle Whore where she was as a wall decoration. It was time for me to tend to my RL too anyway.

I was inworld after lunch again and found a message from Cica Ghost, who had opened a new installation. Spontaneously I went over there on the spot and enjoyed seeing “Elephants by Cica Ghost” (read here). It didn’t take too long and was another highlight of that Sunday.

I came on early at night and none of the family was present. I had the chance to continue the roleplay that Mistress Jenny and I are still having together and alone. It was another intense session. I might reveal the roleplay one day *winks*
Back to my day. I returned home and as still none of the family was present, I found the time to write, to sort pictures and to clean up inventory.

When Mistress came online, Angelique and slave Flo were also present and we went seeing them. They were already playing greedy and Mistress and I watched their play and caught up with our mutal news. Then we took them to our decking, Mistress and Angelique cuddled and I told slave Flo off for using our bathroom and bath tube the other day. She knew that was against the rules for the slaves as the bathroom is restrichted to the superiors. I put her into a gord suit and locked it tight.
In the meanwhile slave Luci and slave Gwendi had joined us and slave Gwendi was the next … I ordered her to wear a maid dress and explained her that she will serve us as a slave maid until further notice and of course will have to keep the house clean (that is why I installed a new cleaning system.
We went over to the house and to my surprise … it was almost clean. Angelique couldn’t bear with the dirt and had cleaned the house. Nonetheless I explained slave maid Gwendi how to clean and she had to clean the toilet as Angelique had left it out.

May 31st – a night at home: Mistress Jenny, Diomita, Angelique, slave Luci, slave Flo and slave maid Gwendi

Time had went over very quickly again and it was already flotime. We said good night to slave Flo, the others slaves and to Angelique and retreated to our skybox. We found some time for ourselves and Mistress allowed me to lick her and to get my fix. Mistress takes care that I stay addicted to her and ensures that my submission gets a bit stronger with every day. Thank you, Mistress. It had been a varied day and night and overall nonetheless relaxing as it should be.

 

 

Art in Second Life 2020 (31) Elephants by Cica Ghost

Sunday, May 31st, I got an invitation to visit Cica Ghost’s newest installation “Elephants by Cica Ghost“. I went over there on the spot and met Cica at the landing point. While talking with her I already saw the elephants. Of course, huge elephants. Animals in Cica’s worlds are always very big and they all have big eyes – so do her elephants.

The scenery is bathed in black and green tones, the ground is dark and looks a bit like water at night, inbetween are many hills and islands. You see forests but there’re no leaves, no branches, just trunks. And that fits to Cica’s funny landmark description:
Q. What do a tree and an elephant have in common?
A. A trunk.

Impressions of “Elephants by Cica Ghost” (1) – overviews (left) / Dio meets Cica at the Landing Point / Diomita on the trunk of an elephants

It was not easy to take an overview picture of “Elephants by Cica Ghost” as changing the windlight did not have the desired effect and just zooming out was way to dark. Finally I succeeded with two overview pictures and then I started my tour. And I had fun! You will find 3 “Cica-ish” huts, way to small for an elephant to live in. You can use a swing in one hut, sit with two people in another hut and the third hut is Cica’s “Elephant Store”. There are nine different elephants that you can purchase as your personal souvenir.

Next to the store is a tall trunk and you can walk up to the top. From there you have a nice look over “Elephants by Cica Ghost” and you don’t need to use any tricks to get the overiew another way *winks”.

Impressions of “Elephants by Cica Ghost” (2) – the view from the tall trunk / Cica’s elephant store

On my way to the above mentioned tall trunk I walked into a field of high grass or plants, higher than a normal avatar and I can tell that I almost lost the orientation in it. Don’t miss to have a more detailed look at the grass-like plants. You can discover other elements like stars, snails, spirals and snakes. Of course I also tried to find Cica’s cat. And this time Cica has smuggeled in a cat again. You find in the hut where two people can sit in.

Impressions of “Elephants by Cica Ghost” (3) – admist the tall green plants / Cica’s cat

Don’t miss having a close look at all the elephants. They are really the stars in Cica’s installation. You can sit on them and those who I tried to sit on have 2 poses, one on the elephants schoulder and one on their trunk. In the middle of the installation is a hill with two trunks to sit on. These over 3 poses: one sit, one lay and one dance pose… and there’s another animal that found it’s way into “Elephants by Cica Ghost” – a parrot.

Impressions of “Elephants by Cica Ghost” (4) – Diomita enjoying Cica’s world

Cica did conjure a smile on my face with her newest installation, she always succeeds to make me smile. Thank you Cica! I just love your elephants (and the cat of course!).
Don’t miss riding Cica’s elephants!

Diary 2020 (66) May 6th/7th Getting deeper again

I met with Mistress Jenny for one hour in the afternoon on Wednesday, May 6th, and it became an intensive hour for me. I had changed into shorts, a white blouse and overknee boots but I had to take off the blouse again and Mistress put me into the armbinder venus corset. Then we went to Heavy Bondage club and talked about the roleplay the night before. Mistress had enjoyed it, hence it might go on.
But I could also sense that Mistress was in a dominant mood and she destroyed all doubt about it. I had to wear my Ehesklavin tag again and she kept me restricted at Heavy Bondage Club. She also ordered me to take off the overknee boots and to wear ballet boots. One of Mistress’ rules is that slaves either wear no shoes at all or ballet boots and I am her married slave. And she made it very clear that I will regret it if I don’t comply to it during the red light.
The hour went over quickly and we returned to the loft skybox, where Mistress Jenny stored me in the glass cage at the wall close to her throne. I was already getting deep into subspace again.

May 6th: Mistress Jenny and Ehesklavin Diomita at Heavy Bondage Club and at our loft skybox

At night Mistress released me from the glass cage and made me lick her to earn getting off the armbinder corset. I must have done well because she unlocked it and allowed me to wear the blouse again. And she cares about my addiction and that I stay addicted to her. Thank you, Mistress.

We went home and found slave Gwendi, slave Flo and slave Luci playing greedy and we joined in. After the game we decided to go to Gravity’s Wednesday party at Caged Elegance. And slave slut cecy joined us there soon after we arrived. We had fun and I found time to talk to all of them a bit. That is the upside of dancing in Second Life. The music was great as always. We had a relaxed time and Gravity played until flotime.

May 6th: Mistress Jenny and Ehesklavin Diomita at our loft skybox / Dancing at Caged Elegance with slave Gwendi, slave Flo, slave Luci and slave slut cecy / in our skybox at home

After the slaves were off to bed, Mistress Jenny and I spent a few minutes at club Domme a Domme. We were both tired after the roleplay the night before had kept us up way too long and hence we went back home and called it a night.

Thursday, May 7th, Mistress Jenny and I met in the afternoon again for 45 minutes. We spent the time at Heavy Bondage Club mainly just chatting and catching up with our mutual news. We were that busy talking that I even forgot to take a picture, but there are many of those pictures in the blog already *winks*

I had an invitation from Cica Ghost to visit “Social Distancing by Bryn Oh and Cica Ghost” and I did in the afternoon. As the name already gives away it is an installation that deals with the current situation in our RL and it does so with a whimsical smile (read here about this installation).
In the early afternoon I made another simploring tour and visited Hotel del Salto, the new sim of Jade Koltai. It is once again a sim that was built after a real place and I enjoyed my visit a lot and I was impressed (read my simploring report here).

At night Mistress Jenny and I met slave Flo and slave gwendi at the greedy table and we joined their game. When we were finished Ann came by and we had a longer chat with her in a relaxed atmosphere. As the slaves were not much restricted it was an opportunity to do something totally different from our normal activities. I took Mistress Jenny and the slaves to “Social Distancing by Bryn Oh and Cica Ghost” first and later to Hotel del Salto. It was fun and Mistress and the slaves enjoyed doing something different.

It was not yet flotime when we returned and hence we went to Psi’s realm just to wind down a bit before slave Flo and slave Gwendi went to bed. Mistress Jenny and I went to Puerto Esclava for a few minutes and then went to bed ourselves.

Art in Second Life 2020 (24) Social Distancing by Bryn Oh and Cica Ghost

Yesterday I got an invitation from Cica Ghost who has opened her newest art work that she created together with Bryn Oh: Social Distancing. I went there right the next day, May 7th, 2020.

The landing is at Bryn Oh’s sim Immersiva in a box that is also the starting point when visiting Bryn Oh’s installation “Hand”. There’s a board for “Social Distancing” that leads to a platform, where you find Cica’s and Bryn’s installation “Social Distancing“.

Impressions of “Social Distancing by Cica Ghost and Bryn Oh” – around the Landing and meeting the Corona Monster

The theme of “Social Distancing” is of course the current situation most of us are suffering of right now, the Corona virus. But it is done in the typcial Cica way, conjuring a smile in everybody’s face nonetheless – at least in mine. The Cica houses have become small in comparision to humans. One person occupies one house and they keep distance from eachother. Homing pigeons carry the messages between the people. In the background you hear chimes and voices saying “hello”. The scene is installed in a dark forest, you wade mostly through knee deep water if you don’t use the paths that are made of stones. The houses are on hills at a clearing.

Impressions of “Social Distancing by Cica Ghost and Bryn Oh” – meeting the Corona Monster, the red canoe, the houses and the gatcha

And of course there are Corona viruses, the Corona Monsters. They are big and don’t look really nice, no wonder that the humans stay at home! Nonetheless the scene is not scary though. On the water you also find a read canoe, made for social distancing. You can purchase the items used for creating “Social Distancing” at a Gatcha for 80 L$, and if you’re lucky you get the canoe.

Anything else? Yes, I saw no Cica cat :-(. And try to sit in one of the two empty houses and become a part of the community.

Impressions of “Social Distancing by Cica Ghost and Bryn Oh” – some more impressions and Diomita as part of the community

I enjoyed my visit and I like how Cica and Bryn have transformed our current situation into Second Life. Thank you both for this piece of art.

Art in Second Life 2020 (10) Another Fairy Tale by Cica Ghost

Yesterday, March 7th, I got an invitation from Cica Chost. She had opened her newest installation named “Another Fairy Tale“. As usual Cica provides a quote along with her installation, something to think about while visiting “Everything you look at can become a fairy tale and you can get a story from everything you touch. (Hans Christian Andersen)

Right at the landing you’re asked to use advanced lighting and to set shadows with sun/moon and projectors. The scenery at Another Fairy Tale by Cica Ghost is set at night and Cica plays with lights and projectors to showcase her animals. This time we meet dragons, some snails, some other animals which I’d call horses or unicorns (it’s something inbetween), bugs, dead sharks and other fantasy animals.

Impressions of “Another Fairy Tale by Cica Ghost” (1)

The human visitor is once again just a dwarf. Even the flowers are huge. The landscape is hilly but sometimes what seems to be a hill is just the tail or the back of another huge dragon or animal. As always it is fun to have a detailed look at Cica’s animals with their big eyes that seemingly watch you.

Impressions of “Another Fairy Tale by Cica Ghost” (2)

Opposed to the landing point you find 3 dead sharks that stick in the ground. Their opened mouth is the entrance to kind of a living room for snails. And plants and flowers are growing from the sharks gills. Bugs fly around everywhere, I didn’t count them, and they are also really big. You can “sit” on them and will find yourself hanging at one to their legs and accompany them flying around.

By th use of projectors some animals are in the spotlight sometimes and that makes them look even more interesting, for example one dragon – or is it the monster of Loch Ness (?), comes up from the depths of the sea and looks around.

Close to the landing point is the biggest dragon, you can walk up it’s tail and back almost up to it’s head and you get a nice view from there. Under it’s tail, that is used as bridge, is another smaller dragon in the sea.

I had fun exploring Another Fairy Tale by Cica Ghost and looking at Cica’s animals. And you can let your mind wander and think of a fantasy or fairy tale that would fit into this scene. Although the animals are huge, they are not scary. They seem to be peacefully enjoying their lives and to look very interested at these little human visitors.

Overall, Cica’s animals made me smile again. Thank you for another great fantasy world, Cica!
