The Seasons Story opens soon and as always will present work from the top designers in Second Life. I think aside from the Arcade, Seasons Story and Collabor88 may be my two regular favorite shopping events. In this post I combined some of what they both offer for July.
Collabor88 is open and ready for you to TRY and get in. Bring your linden, you will be taken in by the luxurious interpretation of the theme Safari. What I love about Collabor88 is that the designers always present the better side of the theme. The Loft for instance does not give you tired bamboo furniture but rather a modern leather set with stretched hide backing on the couch. All in contemporary colors and animal print carefully accenting furniture fit for a New York high rise apartment. Another stand out designer this round is Nylon Outfitters. The set of masks are so well made and textured, I can only hope there will be more in that series at some point. You can find lots of what you see in the picture at Collabor88 but that groovy belt I have on you will find at We Love Role Play, its another amazing wearable by DRD.
The Seasons Story always has a few great gacha machines and here is one from 8f8. This one is called our Secret Hideout and features two trees with animations as well as a cuddle rug. It is the details that win me over however, like this memory book complete with aged SL shots. IBI also does an incredible job with the trees and wood textures here. There is ONE secret Rare which I am sworn to secrecy about, so you will have to head over to the Seasons Story on July 10th and try your hand at getting it!
