Spotlight on........UGC Hostess Amourette Dubrovna

I was in SL Knightsbridge’s Underground Club (UGC), recently when it was announced that the scheduled hostess wasn’t going to make it. Luckily another dedicated staff member was in the club off duty and offered to fill the breach. That avatar was glamorous Amourette Dubrovna and I resolved to find out more about this popular Hostess. I started by asking Amourette (she likes to be called Am) how she came to be involved with the club: - "It was probably about a year ago that I found the club, I liked the music and just found myself going back until I became part of the community, now I feel like I belong, All my friends know it's my favourite place to hang out, so they often come for a dance there too."

I then asked Am how she came to be a hostess: - "I had mentioned to Seany Blinker (the UGC manager) that I was interested in getting more involved in London some way, and he suggested I apply for a hostess job. The club is not too big and it's a nice comfortable space. There are lots of fun contests, and the big events are always brilliant. But I also like the days when it's just about enjoying good music and great company. I've gotten to know the familiar faces and met some lovely new people there too. I've been working at the UGC for about 4 months now."

Next I asked Am about her views on SL London: - "My favourite thing is the regular community that inhabit London and I love being a part of that. I think that more things to do with your friends would be good and more interesting places to visit. Some botanical gardens or a big art gallery, where the community are encouraged to submit their pictures and sculptures. My home in not in SL London because I need a space where I can build. But overall I love the London Sim, I find it a very warm and friendly place."

I asked Am about what she does when she is not at the UGC: - "There is so much to do in SL I'll try almost anything. I've been to waterslide parks, tried to play tennis, been roller blading, even hopping about on my space hopper. One of the things I have enjoyed the most is swimming as a mermaid, there are some beautiful underwater sims. I don't do role-play but I do like themed events and dressing up. I went to Zombie Fest with my best friend Snow Sweetwater this year. Without doubt my favourite sim apart from London is ‘Jaded Wings - A Dark Fairies Dream’.
This place is really beautiful with the most fantastic lightening storms and rainfall and a quiet, dark and seductive atmosphere. It has lots of secret nooks and crannies, great if you like to explore or take pictures, I find something new there every time I go back."

Building was mentioned by Am earlier, I asked her about that: - "Another of my UGC friends taught me how to make my first block and from then on I was hooked, I find building very relaxing and absorbing. At the moment I enjoy building homes and I’ve built a store for my friend Snow, I intend to explore more building options in the future. It would be great to learn to make some of my own clothes, and maybe even get a business started in SL."

Thank you Amourette for your interesting answers. I’m sure that all of the UGC patrons and your friends in SL London will join me in wishing you good luck with your future ventures.
