In this, our final new episode for 2019, we explore Winter Wonderlands around the grid with a special trip to the Christmas Expo for Relay for Life!

From 2pm today, Monday 16th December, you can see the show on the Designing Worlds Vimeo channel at: https://vimeo.com/channels/dworlds and on the Designing Worlds channel at SLArtist at: https://www.slartist.com/browse-dw-videos-1-date.html. And you can join the special Watch Party (also at 2pm SLT) in our studio on Garden of Dreams.

We visit the Christmas Expo to see the stores and designs there, and take a sleigh ride with Trader Whiplash and Nuala Maracas to see the Lights of Hope – houses decorated for Christmas by the designers – and also tour the Linden Lights of Hope – which were houses decorated by the Lindens and the Moles (tinies – look out for the waffle mountain and syrup lake at 25.37).

We also visit some of the fabulous Winter Places on show in Second Life, including Russian fairytale-like Warm Angel and the recreation of the Austrian town of Gosau created by two real-life farmers who live in the area, and the Bells of Rhymney which mixes a Rivendell-like atmosphere with Baroque architecture.

And we include two extensive slideshows by Wildstar Beaumont which cover some locations we weren’t able to visit in person.

It’s a very beautiful show, so do tune in or join us at 2pm SLT at the Watch Party in Garden of Dreams!
