Designing Worlds looks back at … The Looking Glass

Join us today, Monday 19th April at 2pm SLT in our beautiful studio in Garden of Dreams as we journey back into the past for a show first shown in June 2016, when we visited the beautiful Looking Glass region, which at that time had been totally redesigned by Sharni Azalee and Marcus Inkpen.

DW307 – The Looking Glass Revisited from Richard Elen on Vimeo.

You can watch it on this blog, and you can also see the show on the Designing Worlds Vimeo channel at: https://vimeo.com/169056906. And you can join the special Watch Party at 2pm SLT in our studio on Garden of Dreams.

Marcus and Sharni had done a complete redesign that has been two years in the planning, and several months in the execution and – as we discovered when Marcus showed us around – the end result is gorgeous, and has become a favourite place for many on the grid – including us; we filmed the 2019 Halloween Tale there.

Sharni was unable to join us (she’s based in Australia and was soundly asleep when we filmed) but Marcus was able to share with us many of the beauties and the fun things that await visitors to The Looking Glass. It makes for an amazing eye-candy episode as he shows us the Art Gallery, the hidden upper streets, the towers, the bridge, the performance areas, the landscaping … and we certainly didn’t have time to cover everything!

It’s a show you won’t want to miss – so do come and join us for the Watch Party – or watch it on the web!

You can visit The Looking Glass on Horizon Dream here. And make sure to look out for Sharni Azalee’s stunning region J’Adoube at this year’s Fantasy Faire, opening on Thursday 22nd April!
