Simploring 2020 (57) Kiyori

After my visit to Voodoo Land (read here) I had a nice chat with Megan Prumier, one of those who had built Voodoo Land. Megan hinted that I should visit Kiyori, another city she was involved in building and that had just opened in early August. I went to Kiyori on Monday, August 10th.

Kiyori is an immersive nightlife location based off of various Asian influences. It is a full adult region and has a lot to offer. Kiyori is owned by Jasmine Kiyori. It was buildt by Megan Prumier, Sofie (Sofie Janic) and Jasmine Kiyori.

The landing is at a subway station and it doesnt take long until you notice that you’re in an adult environment. On my way upstairs to town I came across a vending machine for dildos and sex toys, the posters at the wall did also indicate that at least this sation is leading up to a red light district.

Once I left the subway I was admist raceways, big billboards, lights – wow. I went into the game room, a place for gaming and I had my first smile looking around inside. I liked in particular the offered female bums for 25 cent *grins*.

After this first adult fun I walked to a park. In the center of it is a restaurant. It is quite well designed and rich of details. If you’re hungry you shouldn’t look at it. The food looks really yummy. The park itself is what you’d expect seeing in a city.

Of course there are markets with stands, little restraunts, cafés, bars, food stands, discos and all what you’d expect in a big city. I read on a poster in the subway station what all I could have seen (I didn’t see that all):
“Tantra Gentlemen’s Club, Oriental Motel, Love Hotel, Adult Entertainment Store, Numerous Bars (Gay Bar, BDSM Bars), Red LightRooms, Massage Parlour and Spa, Qinglong Bar, Adult Arcade, Adult Movie Theatre, Sushi Bar”
Quite a list of things to do and to see!

I roamed around getting more impressions. Kiyori is surrounded by a very colourful high-rise building sim surround. The sim surround melts perfectly into all the lights in the streets and is a way better background than I thought on the first glance. Looking into the bars and restaurants is fun as most offer a lot of details.

The largest building occupied by the Tantra Gentlemen’s Club. It is impressive from the outside but also from inside with its purple light. The red light district has several bars (no, I didn’t see the BDSM bar), there’s a brothel where you can pose in one of the windows and I found another pose next to a BDSM raceway. I had fun.

At Kiyori you can rent a market stall or you can rent appartments. I saw a luxury appartment and two standard flats. So if you like this kind of city environment, have a look at Kiyori. Kiyori is (adult) fun and is a great place to take pictures in this particular environment.

Thank you Jasmine Kiyori for sharing your sim with the public. I hope it will fulfill your expectations and that it becomes a vivide community. Thank you Sofie Janic for building and thank you Megan Prumier for building and for giving me the hint.

Simploring 2020 (52) Voodoo Land

For my simploring tour on Friday, July 17th, I picked “Voodoo Land” from scoop.it SL Destinations. The entry led to a post from Maddy Gynoid “Simtipp: Voodoo Land – (Juli 2020)” (post is in German, Maddy took some great pictures too)

Voodoo Land is a moderate full region owned by Sofie Janic and Monkey Wonder. Vegas (jrvegas) contributed to the design. The sim is home for 2 big stores: The Voodoo Community Mainstore, that sells spolders and security tools for clubs and events, and the Vegas Tattoo mainstore owned by Vєgas (abaracdabra).

Impressions of Voodoo Land (1) – around the landing point

The landmark description refers partly to the Voodoo Maintstore: “A community of people from around the globe. Our platform is a tool to enhance your experience in virtual worlds by improving security, and creating opportunities to gain money and traffic while you have fun. Anti-bot & Sploder systems, Trivia, Dance.

Next to the the Voodoo Land full region is a moderate homestead, that is connected my a brige – “Little World”. I didn’t explore it (yet), but it seems to be the playground of Sofie Janic and Vegas. “Always in > Under construction 😛 … by Sofie Janic and Vegas and a big thanks to Megan Prumier \o/”
Megan Prumier is also involved in Voodoo Land, for example the Irish Pub contains objects from her.

Back to Voodoo Land. The landing leads directly to the Voodoo Mainstore. From there I began simploring. Voodoo Land is – besides the two big stores – a huge modern mega city at night. It is full of illuminated advertisings and has all you’d expect from a megatropolis. Most stores and shops are just facades but in particular bars and entertainment are accessible, just try yourself. I liked in particular the above mentioned Irish pub.

You will also find lots of graffiti, some are huge and remind more of a big art exhibition *winks*. You find video billboards and raceways, little oasises, a skateboard park and a basketball court. And some little details made me smile. I want to mention the “WcDog’s Hotdog sign”, a sign I never saw before yet in Second Life.

The whole environment invites for roleplay or is just a great background for taking pictures in an urban night setting. Or you could visit one of the bars with your friends.

There’s also a video of Voodoo Land, that provides a perfect impression of this mega city.

I had a lot of fun exploring Voodoo Land and taking pictures. I always appreciate when shop owners not just have a store inworld but also gice something back to their clients or to the whole community. Thank you Sofie Janic, Monkey Wonder, Vegas (jrvegas), Vєgas (abaracdabra), Megan Prumier and whoever else was and is involved in realizing Voodoo Land.
