HG Addresses, as always, at the end of the post.
|Rusty and the TanGLe gang keep us entertained as we cam the Expo|
The great Rusty Schiavo was on hand to keep the party popping with his oldies, and many local Tangle residents joined us including Ballistic Pixel, Perfectoracle Sciavo, Jodie Croft, Sarah Popstar, and Graceann Noel, making it a real party.

Thirza Ember: wow that's great, congrats to you, and to Leslie, Gary and Tmac for all their hard work in keeping TanGLe at the heart of the hypergrid.
The goods on show, including quite a few free items, include skins, nails, and clothes. So far, it's ladies first, but eventually there should be a Roth (or will that be Rufus?) avie for the guys. One of the nicest pieces was the Ada Radius avie...

Alya.VonZ: Jeez this project looks amazing Ruth mesh Avatar ...looks all very good, will certainly further research Ruth and all what comes with it... it would be nice if faces are adaptable just like the bodies and *old fashioned Avies*:)
Rusty Sciavo: an amazing display of fashion designers that show incredible promise
All too soon it was time for us to head out, and we were all very thankful for Rusty's musical memories.
Rusty Sciavo: My pleasure. Anytime you all want oldies radio in your grid come hit me up. We make appearances. we have a Facebook page for everyone. Free to join and follow... Oldies Radio - Houston
And then, we were off to Sanctuary Grid for the annual Lumiere Noir event, this is our third year of celebrating the creativity and general awesomeness of this opensim and SL celebrity, who sadly died way too soon.
|The four sim Ivory City region, on Sanctuary|
|Flidais watches the show, enriched by particles and some lovely artwork|
A brilliant nine minute show by Jessie Campbell introduces the visitor to Lumiere aka Vince, and with NPCs, particles, words and of course prims, we learn about his life and works, including his various choices, when it came to avatar - from alien monkey, to glowing mesh man, to the character Spy, perhaps his most distinctive - now a free gift made available especially for the event.
NPC Vince gives you the rundown, as to the purpose of the build, with some help from his friends the Prim-ates... if you visit the region, you can touch a utton and start the show any time, 24/7, which makes it even more special...
|NPCs of Lumiere and Tosha explain the purpose and aim of Ivory City|
Vince Frost: As a Real Life teacher and Master Artist I was called to teach here as well
Vince Frost: The building blocks of these worlds is the Primitive, or prim
Vince Frost: There are many amazing secrets most people don't know about prims....
Vince Frost: All of this and more.... even texturing prims....
Vince Frost: you can learn here in Ivory City....from basics to very advanced,,,,
Vince Frost: Every building you see here is simple prims...that I and Tosha crafted..
Vince Frost: Look at this shapely and elegant structure...all done with simple prims.
Vince Frost: Ivory City, as my previous Ivory Tower are Self-Guided, Self-Paced, Comprehensive Building Tutorials.
|Jessie Campbell, Queen of the NPCs|
|The Lumiere Noir show on Ivory City. And yes of course, people touched everything|
Alya VonZ: I remember I went to the ivory tower in sl, to learn about building only imdagine the
Tosha Tyran: Lumiere was one of the first 300 avatars to join SL and was a pioneer in the science of prim building! Lumi and I were friends and partners for many years, starting in SL and then here in OS.Since his sudden passing, I have tried to carry on, managing Ivory City and caring for his prims....
Vince Frost: Please visit all of the lessons at your own pace..., I know you will learn a thing or two!
Tosha Tyran: you can go from one to the other little buildings and follow the lessons, each lesson has a notecard, or various. It took Lumi a year or two to plan it and start the building, and I finished the buildings and put the lessons in about 6 months. I ate at the pc, I slept at the pc, i didn't do anything else...everything is made for OS, from scratch.
Thirza Ember: I love how each building is unique
Tosha Tyran::) yes, that was the plan,
Thirza Ember: my favorite is the fish one.
Tosha Tyran: that is the only one of the little buildings Lumi made...the plan was that he would make the large towers and for the little lady the huts, hahaha...but then the plans got changed darn suddenly :(
Phred 420: well its obviously done by a very good teacher... a great teacher, and artist!
|Tosha leads the way to the Grad Stair pavilion|
Thirza Ember: tosha, is there one part of the Tutorial that is specially memorable for you?
Tosha Tyran: uff, that is difficult to say, Thirza, maybe my favorite still are those grand stairs of his
Eva Kraai (it -> en): beautiful show!
Tosha Tyran: these are the stairs I love so much :) great tecnic.
Eva Kraai (it -> en): all in prims?
Tosha Tyran: yes
Eva Kraai (it -> en): fantastic
Thirza Ember: once you have learned how to make that, you may consider yourself a master of prims
Tosha Tyran: yes, maybe, though the more I learned the more I also learned how little I know compared with Lumi
Cherry Manga: I must go and rest....many thanks for letting this place be, probably the most beautiful and creative way to educate to building....Lumiere would be proud of you Tosha and all the efforts made here. Safaritas, I wish you a good night
