  • LKR Glow comes to Virtual London

    February 15, 2017 • NewsComments (0)

    Walking around the streets of London, you’ll come across many shops selling all types of items, catering for all sorts of users. Our shops range from the sophisticated to cheeky and LKR Glow is no exception in that department.

    However, you may not realise that most merchants here have a rich history in the ever expanding grid we know and love.

    Today we look at one of those shops.

    LKR Glow originally started out as “Lokirat’s” later changing to “Lokirat’s place” and has recently updated to “LKR Glow” to reflect the Virtual Rat’s joy at her glorious new home on the grid. Also a friendly greeter, you’l see her smiling and waving in our lovely hub.

    Speaking to Virtual London News today, she gave us some insight into her history of shops and the evolution that took place.

    “At first I wanted a small shop where I could showcase my art, which developed into experimenting with making mesh toys. I didn’t have much to sell or much of a prim allowance in the beginning, so I focused on making the decor colourful and bright as possible. I was often stopped whilst working on the look of the shop, by visiting furries, scalies and humans alike, making good friends and taking suggestions along the way.”

    In 2015 Lokirat became an affiliate of Furry Fashion, a clothing brand she cannot be seen without on her Avi.

    “When I discovered I could become a seller for Furry fashion, It expanded my range threefold. Their prices are really decent compared to many mesh clothing ranges out there, and super cute, so I had to show off the great quality and value of my favourite brand, all combined with my super colourful shop style in the most loved sim in second life.”

    Moving to our ever popular Hyde park last year, LKR Glow has gone from strength to strength since, and has the biggest range yet of products for you to browse, from male and female apparel to handmade decor for your home and more. If you need a smart suit, a pretty dress, some jewellery or rave gear LKR Glow has it.
    Just yesterday Loki sent me a private message to announce the new look to her beloved store, and I couldn’t help but race over and have a peek. I’m not going to spoil it for you completely, but here’s an external snapshot to tempt you with. I totally recommend having a look for yourself.

  • Sherlock in Second Life? Surely Not!

    Sherlock – Would You Believe It?

    Sherlock and Watson were found just hanging out when I strolled down Baker Street one fine day. I came across these two familiar yet strange characters who were lurking outside Speedy’s Cafe.

    Sherlock

    Holmes once again on the trail of crime

    They looked suspiciously like Holmes and Watson from the television crime drama Sherlock, written by Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss. In fact, these avatars are perfect resemblances of Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman, who star in the series as Sherlock Holmes and Dr John Watson.

    Sherlock

    Elementary my dear Watson


    Sherlock the TV series

    The series has gone strong since 2010 and has gained popularity all over the world, none greater than in London, where a replica of Baker Street allows people to become part of the drama themselves. The series is a modern adaptation of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes detective stories, based in Victorian times. It’s now the UK’s most popular drama series since 2001, beating both ‘Call the Midwife’ and Coronation Street in viewing figures.

    Baker Street in Second Life London

    So how did Baker Street get to Second Life London? Darius Godric is a fan of Sherlock and created an exact replica of Speedy’s Cafe and Sherlock’s quarters along London’s Baker Street. When you look inside you can see how messy these guys were. Books all over the front room and chemistry sets in the kitchen. Take a tour around their home and see what they’ve been up to lately. If you’re lucky, you may catch Holmes trying to get into his safe, or cooking up a brew among the test tubes and microscopes.

    Sherlock

    Speedy’s Cafe

    Holmes is a consulting detective who helps the Metropolitan Police find the deadliest and most dangerous criminals. His main associate in the police force is Detective Inspector Greg Lestrade, who he helps solve various crimes with his flatmate, Dr John Watson’s assistance. Dr Watson was serving in the Medical Corps in Afghanistan before he came to live with Holmes. Throughout the TV series Holmes continues to battle with his arch-enemy Moriarty.

    Other characters include Molly Hooper, a pathologist at Bart’s Hospital,  who helps out with catching the bad guys  and often assists Holmes in his cases.  Holmes & Watson’s landlady, Mrs Hudson, played by Una Stubbs appears often, with Mark Gatiss making regular appearances as Sherlock’s brother, Mycroft Holmes.
