Blue Lotus Okiya

Waiting for Blue Lotus Okiya to rez was worth the wait. Here’s how they describe themselves:

The Blue Lotus Okiya, a place of tradition and artistry since 2007. Women of culture, intelligence and distinction. Geisha with honor, grace and beauty. In an environment rich with traditional values combined with sisterhood and support.

Actually, I didn’t see any geisha or women or anyone else, not that I’m complaining about wandering alone, but a few role-playing characters would add another layer of virtual reality to the space.

Located in Renge Koyama (140, 136,30), BLO is a vast build in a mountainous region. I’m sure I didn’t see it all, but perhaps the pictures show otherwise. It takes some serious walking to get around, as flying is forbidden. I think that adds to the tranquil atmosphere, though.

Travel to the past not all that fun

I did make it to Prehistorica, the Dawn Kingdoms and chose to travel back to the Mesozoic Era (the only choice). I expected some attacks by what animals were roaming then, but it seems I should have stopped in the shop and bought a dinosaur avatar first and become my own prehistoric beast. A few people did, but I was not frightened of them.

It was a well-made, lush sim but lacked enough to do. If there were any hiding dinosaurs, I wish they had come out to chase me. The one dragon you see was someone’s avatar and while interesting to look at, he did not know his role very well. There were a couple of gnat avatars flying around and being annoying—avatars, too.

Looking for anything but snow

So tired of snow in this life, I went looking for anything without snow in Second Life. First stop, Bryn Oh’s The Singularity of Kumiko. Figured out how to open the red door (which I forgot to pic), but after that, and crossing the barren landscape, it was hard to know what to do in the house-like structure with all the light streams. There were a couple of art installations, I think, that played with gravity, but it was difficult to walk and get anywhere else.

I did not pay attention enough to the directions in the foyer, which I blame for my not getting all I could have out of it. Now that I’ve seen part of it, I will be going back to do what I’m told, and not wander aimlessly.

I tried to go to Prehistorica after that and was logged out. Try again.
