Cloud Party Bloggers

I'm proud to say that Cloud Party Bugle was the very first blog to cover the new virtual world (starting way back in June 2012), but as times goes on, more and more people are blogging about Cloud Party, and it's great to see.  Here are some other blogs for you to visit:

Aeon Chic is a one-woman tornado of activity, busily creating all sorts of wonderful things for Cloud Party: hair, clothing, poses, furniture, etc.  Her blog is at http://chicatcloudparty.blogspot.ca

Ciaran Laval is another blogger who blogs about Cloud Party; to see his CP posts, use this link:

And another blog, this one by person or persons unknown, is Cloud Party Mania: http://virtualworldmania.blogspot.ca/

If you know about another Cloud Party blog which is kept (reasonably) up-to-date, please drop a comment and let me know about it.  Thanks!

Neighbourhood of Note: Rustica

The talented Maxwell Graf has been busy creating breathtakingly realistic constructions on his island, Rustica. They look like something out of a fairy tale!  Here are a few shots of his island, that I took while visiting with Max:

Also of note is the amazing pirate ship in the waters nearby:

Two New Stores: A City and Chez Chic

Today I dropped in to visit two new in-world stores in Cloud Party.  The first is an animations store called A City:

This will certainly be a place to go for furniture creators!  It`s great to see more selections in sits and poses.
Location: https://www.cloudparty.com/loc/9489893757/-8.9,-31.2,8.0,-0.4

The second store I visited is called Chez Chic.  Owner Aeon Chic has turned her hand to men`s and women`s hair and clothing, in a dark, moody store environment:

Here`s a look from the store.  The first outfit to be sold is a uniform-type pantsuit with accesory belt, and it costs 70 CC.  The first hair is a short style called Marcy, which I am wearing in black.  It comes in six different colours for 40 CC each, or a fat pack for 100 CC.  (Sneakers are standard from the Outfit tab, and are free.)

Total cost of this outfit is 110 CC, or US$5.50.

An Action Shot!

Jesse Thompson kindly took a short video of us dancing the Samba, and made an animated GIF of it.  This is us dancing at the brand-new island called The Landing, where new avatars will land up as a sort of central gathering area.  With the explosion of new islands I think this is a good idea.

Red Team or Blue Team?

Cloud Party has released another fun game, this one is called Rad Rocket, where you are a member of one team (red or blue) shooting blaster guns at the opposing team, while running around a space station.  Capture the central portal for your team.  Get killed and you respawn back at your headquarters for another fight.

Oh and did I mention, the space station also shoots at you as you fly to it?  Much fun, try it out!

Estelle Parnall, Please Come Back

Being on the lookout for fashion, I was overjoyed when Estelle Parnall joined Cloud Party.  I was very familiar with her work in Blue Mars, where she designed numerous beautiful and stylish outfits.

Estelle has an island in Cloud Party, and even has a few items set for sale.  But it looks as though she has not visited for a while.  Location: https://www.cloudparty.com/loc/2306/26.6,20.0,0.9,-0.6

Estelle, come back!  You are one designer I can't let go!

Another In-World Furniture Store: [MUMFUZZ]

[MUMFUZZ] is the name of the store that I was trying to remember.  It is another great place to buy home furnishings.  The store is located in the Charming Ville neighbourhood, the location is:

Shopping for Home Furnishings?

As promised, here are a couple of places which sell home furnishings in-world:

A Moore Designs, on Windy Range

Chic Buildings, a new store with great furnishings!

If you come across other places please let me know and I will post to the blog about them.  I know there's at least one other furniture store whose name escapes me, and I cannot find!  Very irritating.  

I'd like to be under the sea...

New Cloud Party users are bringing so much creativity to this new land!

Tathi Luar writes about her build, Beatles Songs 3D:

I ve been building in Secon Life for a few years but Im still a noob in mesh ... SO I decided to use things that I really love to inspire and help me to learn 3d modeling and also explore Cloud Party! Rhe Beatles Songs are one of my favorite things so this is what Ive done so far :-) I intend to add more in time if my Real Life permitts Hope you enjoy it
It is incredible, even in its unfinished state!  Thank you Tathi!

In-World Shopping Experiences

You are not limited to the online Market for your shopping.  Several people have set up in-world shopping centres.  Here are just three of my favourites, in no particular order:

1. Henimations - the place to go to get your animations and animation overrides (AOs).

2. Marquis Gallery and Club: soothing music and bubbles as you shop.

3. M&M Creations: sells both men and women's clothing.  Great selection!

And there are so many places to shop for home furnishings that I will do them as a separate post, later.

You cannot imagine -- unless you are here and exploring -- what a wonderful explosion of diversity there is in Cloud Party.  Anyone and everyone is putting up islands!  Islands of every kind and shape and sort.
