Costume Ball

Long Dresses swirling, sweeping the floor, half seen figures conversing in the shadows, Music playing lending everything a muffled tone, the lights dimmed, candles flicker casting more darkness then they illuminate.

Masks concealing features, secret identites, secret liasons, anything is possible, anything could be anyone, the masquerade, the Costume Ball.

Dignity, refinement, unhampered by garish youth, a secret smile hidden behind a stoic facade, anger hidden behind mirth, One night of otherworldliness, one night of pure escape.

The Clock strikes, twelve chimes to end it all, to bring reality crashing back down upon their heads, scattering them to the winds, unmasking the, their faults and flaws hidden once more. The magic gone. They’re left to bear the consequence.

(I Just want to say that the Costume Ball event is utterly stunning and there are some amazing items on offer, well worth checking out before it’s too late!)

Cinema

Movies are collective dreams, waking sleep shared with those around you.

The best take you into a tiny fragment of a life, pulling you into the realities playing themselves out on the screen. Make you part of the story, an invisible spectator privy to their every secret moment.


What is it about this experience that keeps us buying into this experience? Keeps us shelling out for the overpriced treats and drinks? Keeps us coming back as the prices continue to climb, buying into the gimmicks watching movies in three dimensions we’ve already seen in two?

Why for some is the big screen so preferable to the small? Is it the sharing of the dream? Or the being surrounded by it, encompassed by sound.

Eyes fixed on the screen as the rest of the world and all its concerns disappear for two hours allowing us to take on someone else’s.

To watch them fix everything, tie up their worlds with neat little bows and live the storybook ending. Giving us the hope that one day we may be able to do the same.

Faces

I wear a hundred different faces though not one reflects the whole truth of me. All show a part, a fragment of a person, of who I am. All show a small glimpse of a reflection as if in a shattered mirror.

Some of the faces I wear have many similarities, others fly farther from the mark.

But all of them display some piece of the truth of me no matter how small.

In this world where we can choose to be anyone or anything what do our choices say about us? What do mine say about me? Choosing to be humanoid, to (mostly) be attractive. Does it speak to my vanity that my avatars are almost all within some standard of beauty.

Could it be because we are judged even more fiercely here as we are out there, where we can only control a fraction of our appearance.

No one can choose the face they were born with, though they certainly can buy a new one later on given enough money. But here in SL, where no one has to be short or fat or ugly, where any flaw can be corrected with a few sliders or the click of a button,  what you look like matters just as much as who you are.

It’s amazing considering the  freedom and the possibilities of this digital reality that so much time, effort, and money is put into mimicking the mundane. What does that say about those of us who buy into this fantasy of Normalcy?
