On Friday night a fancy-dress Christmas ball was held at the Underground Club in Knightsbridge. A winter scene was set up inside the club, complete with icicles, skating rink dance-floor and Santa Claus. Some avatars dressed up in Christmas themed outfits while others moved a bit farther afield , but no matter what the outfit was, everyone had a great time.
The UGC went with a new format, changing dj’s and hosts every half hour. First off was DJ Seany1235 Blinker, dressed as a Christmas tree! Of course this was the occasion for a lot of bad puns -“pining away” anyone? Brie Janick hosted with Seany, making sure everyone felt welcomed and getting the party off to a great start.
Next up was DJ Janis Short with TXBarbara Bailey hosting. They were followed by DJ Genevieve Gagne and BilliAnn Bravin. DJ Brie Janick and nahiram Vaniva ended the event. Classic Christmas music was played throughout the evening, along with UGC favourites, ensuring that avatars in Virtual London entered into the final week before the big day in style.
On Sunday night the newest addition to the Virtual London club scene, the jazz club at the Garden Cafe, was the place to be for the Mayfair Christmas Ball. Many avatars dressed in traditional SL Christmas costumes, partying and dancing to a mixture of Christmas and jazz music. Some avatars joined in a big conga line, others danced on their own or with partners, but all enjoyed the party. Billy Arentire made sure that guests participated in the many raffles held during the evening. Prizes from Toritire, ChiChi of London and cash could be won, and in the interests of full disclosure I will have to admit that I was fortunate enough to win L$250. Thanks very much Billy, it was most appreciated, at this time of the year especially!
Now back to getting the Christmas cards out and presents wrapped. Happy Holidays to all our Virtually London (lite) readers!
