Primary Safari

          Primary colors, silliness, clowns, free items, music and throwing away your worries for a little while in the company of some fun, interesting people, that's what it's all about. Cornflakes Week was a very musical event for the Safari, and as you can see *some* of us have got rhythm!

Butch Safari

This week, the Safari was in the business of raising Male Avatar Awareness. Even with the latest shopping survey on Hypergrid Business, *thanks Maria!* finding what you need to create a look in OpenSim is always a challenge, and menswear is the toughest category of all to locate. Skins, shapes and clothes are all tricky. Shapes often give that gorilla look, shoes have traditionally been way too big and clunky, and hair varies wildly from super effeminate to unconvincing buzz cut. If you don't believe me girls, then just go out there and try putting together a look you can live with. No wonder many men give up and go girly, or furry, or simply wear the same tee shirt and jeans for about ten years... I found this Shrek skin and shape at Lani Mall in Jorink Devin's shop... definitely a boy thing.

Le Safari

             This week's Safari was a trip to the little known French province of Lagetaine. Eyewatering buckets of slowness, crashing and general frustration seemed to dog our every step, from the starting point at hgsafari sim on Francogrid, through to Virtual Dreams, on to the Louvre sim on OSGrid. Only the very last stop worked perfectly, by which time a mere handful of bold and tenacious Safaristas were still on board.
