When an event promises “Freaks, SIdeshows, Mayhem and Madness”, my only response is “where and when?”
Such is the case with the New Babbage Carnivale D’Lunatique currently underway through the weekend in Second Life. This is the second year for the event and it has grown significantly. If you are an admirer of steampunk, this is a definite addition to your “to do” list this weekend. Personally, I love steampunk AND I love a good freak show …so it is a win-win for Karma. Steampunk attire is not a requirement, but New Babbage is a fantastic steampunk sim and it always fun to dress the part. It enhances the experience for you, as well as those around you.
The carnival features an open midway full of carnival games, spontaneous performances and rides. You may also come across a bearded lady or other oddities making there way throughout the location. Obviously, I will be hanging out near the tent that advertises “beer & ale”. The main events are held on the carnival’s main stage on Saturday, Feb 11, at 6 pm SLT, and on Sunday, Feb. 12, at 2 PM. (SLT) In a clever move, the main events will place the audience on 3 sims and the stage on a 4th to keep lag to a minumum.
So, if you are like me and you love a good freak show, stop by the Carnivale D’Lunatique.
