An object that is really an event: The Garden of NPIRL Delights promotional triptych

The triptych created by the Rezzable Productions team to promote their joint effort with us, the Not Possible in Real Life group, is simply without equal in the promotional category.

Click to see large (pretty crazy stuff here)

The 4-sim, 2-month build festival - Garden of NPIRL Delights - is getting underway, but there is still LOTS of room for more builders. FOUR sims, people! If you own or manage a sandbox, would you consider rezzing this 24-prim baby there? It will autoadjust depending on the stage of the festival, so you may leave it rezzed.

What do I mean when I call it an event? Check this out...

The freebies alone... a pair of wings, a halo, and a lightning bolt that you can zap... um... others with, are top retail quality.

The festival is open to all builders and building begins tomorrow. The sims will open to the public on May 14th. We are very interested in discovering unknown builders, in helping intermediate builders along (there will be tutorials and all sorts of events once the festival opens to the public), and group collaborations, too.

Several of the grid's most talented creators made this explosive (literally) promo for the festival... It really is more of an event than an object. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you would like a copy of it.

My friend and I absolutely love this triptych! We had to much fun playing angel wars and seeing what else the art would do! Thank you for sending it out! I can't wait to see more from this project.

Howdy Bettina,

Thank you for dropping these breadcrumbs in the virtual forest. I especially appreciate the care you exercise when writing; NPIRL is a pleasure to read.

Being a fringe member of the SLeducation community, I suspect that we have something to learn from the folks at Rezzable about engaging a user.

As soon as I finish here, I am off to share your invitation and spread the word.

Thema! Me, too! I can't wait to see what the content creators will do. Thanks for writing.

Azwaldo, what a nice thing to say. The fact is, I deeply respect the readers of my blog, and try very hard to give you the best that I've got or found. There are sooo many cool things on the grid and sadly, I don't have the bandwidth to highlight and feature them all.

And yes! Engaging the user is something Rezzable does very well.

Thank you for helping us to get the word out! We really really really want to push people's imagination off the cliff and into new and unexpected realms.
