Ruji Mayo and the Cioccolata Gacha Gacha Festival

Ruji Mayo and the Cioccolata Gacha Gacha Festival

Konnichiwa!

I can’t think of a better way to kick off the Cioccolata Gacha Gacha Festival than to show you the gacha from Ruji Mayo.

Why Ruji? Well, Ruji is the person who built Cioccolata. ๐Ÿ™‚

Ruji is an artist who has brought her distinctive whimsical art to SL, and filled the hearts of so many of us with delight.

When you visit Cioccolata, please take a few moments to stand and turn slowly to see and experience the delight of the art of Ruji Mayo – even if you’ve done it before. Look up, fly up, look down. You will find interactive art you can climb up and climb down and sit on and ride and fly and swing. Allow yourself to have a few moments of just plain fun!

Here is Ruji’s gacha for the festival:

This gacha holds wooden dolls that are screws that attach to a hat. Perhaps the best way to explain Ruji’s gacha is to show you the completed hat in Ruji’s YouTube movie in which she is wearing her hat:

Doumo arigatou gozaimasu, Ruji, for bringing the delight of your art, and Cioccolata, to SL!

50+ Free Tattoos… and a Jellyfish Festival!

September 7, 2009 Leave a comment

Ohayo!

Real life artist Rou Demina is celebrating the first anniversay of her Methuselah – Half of the eternity build with a Jellyfish Festival!

Methuselah has a beautiful underwater build, and above ground, Rou’s Gallery Astral Dragon houses an exhibit on the second floor of Rou’s incredible real life artwork drawings, tempera works, and oil paintings. They are breathtaking!

Outside the Gallery, Rou offers visitors a selection of twenty four sets of free gift tattoos. Each of the twenty four gift boxes contains more than one tattoo. I didn’t count them all, but there are more than fifty tattoos total.

Here is just a small sampling of the many tattoo gifts available:

Underwater is the festival area, where there are dances with the jellyfish, a hunt starting point, and other events throughout the week. There is a notecard above ground with further information.

I spoke with Rou last week, and she told me that her Jellyfish Festival is open to the public, and everyone is welcome!

In the festival area, you will find free gifts of jellyfish items from Izumi Homewood of Izumiya. Arigato, Izumi!

You have to see it, to believe it. I’m sorry. I simply don’t have the blogging skills to do this great creator the justice he deserves. Please visit his stores – spend the time to look around slowly to fully appreciate the work of this great artist.
