And here we are again with our weekly News – packed to the brims with interesting, exciting stuff you should not miss.
Tonic Bento Heads
This is a good time if you’re in the market for one of Tonic’s great Bento heads, as no less then three of them are currently on offer:
Beautiful Sierra is available at the eBento event with a nice 25% off.
And so is Elaine – 25 % off her as well at the eBento event.
But the hottest deal currently is Coco, the newest head in the Tonic family, with a massive 50 % off only at the Skin Fair.
Wow, what a interview, even with video!
Well, if a creator gets me in a gown, high heels and all the rest, that means something – but ALB DREAMS actually made me want to dress up. Why? We even teamed up with video artist Bobby Imari to make sure you understand. Read – and watch!!! – it here.
Animated Halter Top by Kieli
Yes, you read that right; this cute Halter Top is ANIMATED! You really need to see for yourself, so head over to Kieli’s lovely new store and check it out; one of her models is showcasing it for us there. Alternatively you can get it on MP. Don’t we all love a bit of attention? 😉 (And I know now how to make a GIF.)
Interview: VRDz by Vixen
Wow, that was fun; exciting dance poles, awesome furniture and a very lovely and interesting creator to talk to, so check it out: Interview with Vixen.
‘Young Designers and Creators’
I think that all the new designers who decide to create awesome new clothes for us deserve a bit of special attention, so I want to introduce them as I find them. The first of hopefully many is Penny from P14, a young designer with some fresh ideas. Here are some examples of her work, so check out her MP and give her creations a try. I think she deserves our attention. Her demos are available here.
Perfect companion, bf/gf – a PlayBot
As some of you might know we not only run TheTonicBlog.com but also do marketing consultancy – and this week we came across something rather unusual: PlayBots, those are real Avatars, not Bots in the classic sense. And they are HUD controlled by you!
You want to have a look or even a ‘test drive’? They are currently on display and for you to try, come and meet them only in our office.
- Take anywhere on the grid – TP works.
- They sit on any poseball, animation, sit, bed, rug, chair etc.
- Activities are not monitored. 😉
Try, have fun, and let us know what you think!
And here is everything you want to know, from the creator himself:

Summer Jam with Mr. Wobbit!
We here at TheTonicblog.com think it sounds great, so this is what Mr. Wobbit himself has to say:
The Virtual Summer Jam will happen for the first time in Second Life. And it will happen from 22nd to 24th of March.
March? A Summer event in March?
Yes – in Second Life it’s always summer! And the real Summer Jam happens every year in August in a small town in Germany. Actually it’s more a private party with lots of friends from Second Life. I rebuilt the original venue in Second Life and invited some musicians. They told me to come along so it can happen.
And this is how it works:
There will be a stage where every musician who feels like is invited to climb and play over the stream I set. To get the stream data the musicians just have to ask me.
But that’s just the stream. Besides there’s a party happening around the clock. Everybody is invited to come along and listen to the stream, but if you want to be part of the party you must join my channel in Discord. To do that, just send me a message on Facebook (Wolem Wobbit) and I will send you an invitation link.
The benefit will be, if it works like I hope it will, that you will be able to chat with text and voice with all the people on the party. And more there might be some music besides the stage, a real jamming around. This will happen just over the voice chat, so everybody could hear it if so wanted.
This is a quite new format, so this first time it is just an experiment. You can make it to something that can happen more often, so, come along and be a part!
The musicians so far:
Boo Dozer, Mar Biddle, Al Hofmann, Oldwolf Criss, Mark Taylor, Aminius Writer, Mike Carnell, Mr. Wobbit, and perhaps a few more, who knows…
