Art in Second Life 2022 (81) “Pink fairytale” by Cica Ghost

Monday, September 12th, Cica Ghost opened another new installation named “Pink fairytale“. The thought Cica provides with the landmark description is a quote from Philip Pullman: “Once upon a time lasts forever.”

As usual with Cica’s installation you shall use shared environment. You will get reminded upon landing. You should also set advanced lighting and activate shadows from sun/moon and projectors. The environment settings are part of Cica’s art. For “Pink fairytale” she selected a pink environment, actually all is in pink (surprise, surprise!). The ground is either sand with footprints and tracks or kind of a carpet with white stripes. There are many sunflower and flower fields, and groups of trees,almostsmall forest. The island of “Pink fairytale” is mostly flat with a few single hills from whichyou can overlook the scenery.

Pink fairytale” is just this – a fairytale in pink. You can walk through this fairytale and explore it, you can sit down and watch (hoover with your mouse over benches and other objects) or you can dance (look out for the sign “Dance” and click it). Of course there are big animals again: ducks, elephants, pigs, a monkey, a cat, a horse and a stork. What’s missing to make it a fairytale – yes, a prince and a princess. And something is also in the underground. There are some tubes growing from the ground and soap bubbles are rising from the tubes.
This time there’s also a store again where your can purchase the different animals and the prince with his princess.

Cica’s “Pink fairytale” is a place where you can lose yourself in dreams. There are many details to discover. There’s a castle with a portcullis that opens when you step on a square in front of it. Inside you find a room …. and the pink cat. Thank you for providing a cat again, Cica! In front of the castle you find the princess surrounded by three ducks and a pink elephant. The pink pigs are close to an oversized cake. Well the cake is still out of reach for the pigs *winks*.

There’s another elephant not far away from the pigs. You can sit on it. If you look close you can see a small bug teasing the elephant’s trunk – or is the elephant trying to catch the bug, I don’t know. Anyway, if you zoom in close the bug is alos very “Cica-ish”.
The prince is sitting on his horse and watches observes what is going on in his realm from another hill.

As a little, funny extra Cica has invited her friend Eupalinos Ugajin to add something to “Pink fairytale“. Not far from where you land Eupalinos has installed a bar. There’s a sign “click the bar to get a drink”. I got many different things – but no drink! I got a “fembotulator”, a typewriter, a truck, a “dramaPodium”…..  all objects are to be worn and I tried them out. That was fun! (And I didn’t try out all objects. Thank you Eupalinos and Cica for this extra fun.

Thank you for another great installation, Cica, it made me smile once again and distracted me. Visiting your installations is always a welcomed time-out where you can immerse yourself into another fantasy world – far way from everyday life.
As always, don’t wait to long with your visit to “Pink fairytale“, you never know how long it may stay – it is a temporary world. And Cica told me that she already began planning her next installation.
