The yacht comes with some beautiful furnishings already in place, but if you spend some time exploring every nook and cranny you may find more things to add that special finishing touch.

You have to do the opulent surroundings justice and dress to impress, fortunately the Yacht has just the thing. Swimsuits, shorts and casual shirts, plus stunning formalwear, all designed with yacht parties in mind.

Drey Beach & Cinematic Clothing

15th December 2011

Drey’s followers know how to always be ahead of the game, and in this case, they’re dodging the winter chill by jetting off to sunnier climes. Outfits for both male and female avatars provide sophisticated styling for those balmy winter holidays, taking inspiration from a European film-festival vibe.

For men, the look is playful – a quirky trilby with a feather in its band teamed with shorts and a polo shirt. The ladies have a more classical look this time around, with wide-brimmed sunhats and sweetheart corsets.

Be the star of your movie. Drey.

Midnight Glade and Fireworks

15th December 2011

New Year, birthday or just a general celebration? Have the ultimate fireworks party without bothering the neighbours in the Midnight Glade personal space from Lockwood. The open grassy fields with their gently sloping hills and spreading oak tree may seem idyllic, but just wait until you unleash a pyrotechnic display on that dark sky! The Midnight Glade offers plenty of space for dancing and watching pretty lights explode across the heavens, while the campfire area provides the ideal spot for chatting and barbecuing. Get 8 people in the Glade at once to get the Supernova Firework reward.

Never set up a fireworks display before? No problem, it couldn’t be easier with the Zeus and Comet rockets from Lockwood. Just choose your favourite colours and then position the firework launcher. Watch out for the helpful diagrams and timing details on the back of the launchers which will make setting up the perfect display a piece of cake!

The Glade even comes with 16 picture frame slots and has its own special Gift Machine, so you can thank your guests for coming by sending them a gift or two (and they can return the favour!). Also, as an extra bonus, if you throw a party with more than 8 people, you and your guests will receive a huge firework reward. So what are you waiting for? Get your friends together and have a fireworks party this New Year!

Medusa Winter Hairstyles

8th December 2011

Midwinter Angel or Burning Desire?  This Winter Medusa brings you the latest hairstyles, perfect for relaxing on a frosty afternoon or heading out to a glitzy evening party.

Men have the choice of a new short, mid-length, or long look. The Troy is a side-parted, clean-cut look with just enough tousling to ensure it won’t look out of place with smart or casual attire. For those with angelic tendencies, there’s the wavy mid-length Gabriel, and for those who want a more casual look, The Tropical Dreamer is a long dreadlocked style.

Ladies can opt for up, down, or somewhere in-between! Up is The Burning Desire, an exquisitely complex do incorporating pinned waves and plaits, while down is The Eve, with gloriously long waves. The Midwinter Angel offers the best of both worlds, with pinned back sides and long loose locks.

If you’re not sure which look to go for, the Medusa’s Winter Hairstyles Packs are available for both Male and Female, mix it up for each party!

Pumpkin Pie the Polar Bear and Popsicle the Penguin can’t wait to play with you. They both love to do tricks – be patient and they’re sure to show you what they can do.

Pumpkin Pie can balance on his front paws and Popsicle loves to twirl a candy cane. Granny Lockwood also knitted them some cousins just for the Gift Machine – look out for them – they’re only available for a limited time!
