(Photographer: Elysium Eilde, Models: me and some random dude)
So I have to admit, I am really excited about the upcoming Festival of Sin event which will be a celebration of the 7 Deadly Sins. The naughty side of me cannot wait to see it all. That’s why I was really excited when the event organizer and owner of Exposeur, RubyStarlight Writer, asked me and the random dude to pose for the Sloth and Gluttony shot. She basically told us to be a filthy, trailer trashy couple, we did well, no? 😛 I also kinda love the little pizza & biryani gut Mr. Gluttony has going on there.
The event will run from February 18th till March 3rd, which is still a while a way but I thought I would throw some questions to Ruby so y’all can get some more information about it and we get an idea of what we have to look forward to.
Strawberry Singh: Who are the organizers behind this brilliant event?
RubyStarlight Writer: Organizational duties rest on my dainty shoulders. However, I’d really have nothing spectacular without Annette Voight doing a lot of building and custom textures for the SIM and Elysium Eilde doing the logo, ad, and all the promotional photography. It’s a group thang. No, wait… not *that* kind of group thang…
Strawberry Singh: How did you guys come up with the theme?
RubyStarlight Writer: The theme is something I’ve had in my head for awhile… you know, being an unapologetic sinner and all. And I have this weird OCD habit about categorizing things. I’m such a perpetual planner that I break everything down into little bits and parts and so I’m kind of obsessive about something like the 7 Deadly Sins or the 4 Seasons or movie genres… or ranking my friends from most awesome to least awesome… it’s really actually pretty out of control… I should get some help.
Strawberry Singh: Are the designers required to make exclusive items just for this event?
RubyStarlight Writer: The items won’t be permanently exclusive, so I guess by definition, no. Each creator is required to make at least one item for the event, inspired by their assigned theme (one of the 7 Deadly Sins), and release it at the festival. Once the event is over though, the designer may choose to place it for sale in their store.
Strawberry Singh: What are you most looking forward to?
RubyStarlight Writer: I’m most looking forward to people EXPERIENCING the event. It’s not just about the shopping. I’m working on placing a lot of hidden features, alleyways, rooms and interactive experiences for people to explore and discover. The first week of an event is a fight to get in and shop, but I hope people will come around the second week as well to explore, take photos, and just have fun.
Strawberry Singh: Will this event be an ongoing thing we can look forward to each year?
RubyStarlight Writer: I think so. I’m having A LOT of fun planning and building and scheming. I can’t make any promises because I really can’t possibly know where I’ll be or what I’ll be doing this time next year, but I do have a vague outline for 2 more elaborate events like this one this year as well, so I think it’s likely. I’ve decided to actually put together an “official” event production company again to do the ones I’ve got planned, which I’ll make official once this festival is over. I almost wanna tell you what the next event is… but… nah.
Strawberry Singh: Do you have any requests from those that will be attending the event?
RubyStarlight Writer: Two things:
- Don’t come if you have sensitivities to blood, violence, sex, drugs, and other general debauchery. I am not holding back at all with the design of this sim, and yes, some people may get offended if they can’t handle the rough stuff. It will be an Adult sim, and I am not afraid to show it. Consider it NC-17.
- We’ve got about a billion textures and scripts and everything else, so we’re limiting access to only 40 people at a time. Maybe less… we’ll have to see. I expect complaints about that, but having something unique and interesting was far more important to me than having something boring but highly functional, so there is a need to keep the number of people on the sim down a bit. There will be two whole weeks to get in and get the items that excite you, so if people can be patient, they will manage to get in and move around just fine.
And there you have it! I am SO looking forward to this event, don’t forget to mark your calendars!
