I wanted to tell you about a fun event happening this weekend called the Sand & Sea Expo. There are a lot of awesome items available related to fun in the summer sun, and there’s also a Beachcomber event that allows you the chance to win free prizes! You’re looking for purple shells. Hit them wen you find ’em and see if you’re a winner!
I think my favorite thing about this event is that the organizers are using teleport boards! When you tp into the event, just look for these boards. They are also scattered throughout the event, making it much easier to get around. I really wish more events would do this, though I think I understand the rationale behind a fixed landing point. However, it’s often frustrating when an event is laggy due to the inevitable crowds, and I think it would be beneficial for events, especially shorter ones like this, if they did a teleport board instead.
There are so many great exhibitors at this event, and it’s a lot of fun to wander around. There are two sims, including an underwater area. But my poor deprived avatar lives in the sky… on a landlocked platform, just like how in RL I live in a landlocked state. So, what’s a girl to do? Well, with some help from the Lisp Serenity Springs hot tub set, and a comfy beach blanket and umbrella from set from What Next, I created my own improvised beach well inland (and upland?)! To keep away unwanted visitors, I donned my ANA Sharkfin headband.
After basking in the sun lazily for a while, I had a need to cool off! While my “pool” can be a hot tub, I didn’t need to turn on the heat on this hot summer day, so I just hopped on in. But not alone. No, I took my adorable shoulder “pet” from KittyCatS… he wants to surf, but first his eye caught something off in the distance, so we’re looking at it. Probably a relative of mine. It’s hard training cats that birds aren’t prey, lemme tell you. My adorable bikini is from Callie Cline… I loved the cut of the bottom especially, and this teal color was perfect to get me in the faux beachy mood!
Speaking of Callie Cline & KittyCatS, be sure you stop by their space at the Sand & Sea Expo. It’s so freakin’ cute I could barely stand it. Here are a few raw shots I took while there. I only cropped these, so otherwise what you see is what you get.
With so many great vendors, you’ll wish this event was going to be around longer! But it ends on May 5th, so hurry up and head on over before it’s nothing more than a memory of days at the beach!
