Diving into the Under The Sea Expo

I’m getting to this a little late, given everything that is going on right now, so my apologies to the organisers.

From June 20th through 26th we have the Under The Sea Expo in Second Life.

Featuring some 26 vendors covering breedables, skins, clothes, plants, and so on, the expo is sponsored by Oceania Breedable and is taking place beneath the wave of the region of Hanalei in a very imaginative and appropriate build.

In all, the participating vendors comprise: Aquatics , Amaretto Ranch Breedables, Bands of Cypher, Beautiful Freak, Boudoir, Botanical, Cerridwen’s Cauldron, The Cetelogical Museum, Curio Obscura, Evie’s Closet, FantaSea, Fantasy Flora, Fior di Perle Skins and Clothes, House of Rain, KittyCatS, LunaSea, meadowWorks, Mer-chandise Cove, The Muses, :{MV}:, NDiver, Oceania Breedables, Tarnished, Two Moon Paradise, Unrepentant and Zohee’s Mermaid Designs.

As a single-region show, Under the Sea offers a more relaxed visit than the likes of SL10BCC, and all of the vendors are within easy reach of the arrivals area, which has a good amount of signage and information about the event.

In addition to the participating vendors, the event includes an interesting little hunt, The Lost Pearls of Hanalei, the trailer for which reads:

Alina’s little sister Mishell thinks she’s been spending too much time in the Mermaid Palace and not enough time swimming in the sea where they live. To lure her out of the palace, she’s taken Alina’s favorite pearl necklace and hidden the pearls in some of her favorite underwater spots! Alina is busy preparing for a dance and she needs that necklace. Will you help her get it back?

Starting at the arrival point, where you must click on the hunt start shell, your task is to follow the hints around the expo, seeking Alina’s lost pearls, presenting you with the opportunity to gain prizes from each of the participating creators.

For those into breedables or who are curious about them, the Expo offers a unique and fun way to find out more – and to cast an eye of the wares of some of SL’s best landscape and other vendors. The undersea environment is very well presented and the various whales, dolphin,s sharks and fish swimming around all add to the general ambience of the region.
