More Crown Stuff

More Crown Stuff

We had such a great time last night at the Paper Crown Pass Ceremony where the crowning of our new Queen Elizabeth was gracefully performed by former Queen Daze. It all started off as a quite ceremonial and dignified event, where people gathered quietly around. Pleasantries and congratulations were exchanged. The cat slept peacefully amongst us. Then something happened that can only happen in this our Second Life. The crowd went virtually mad.

I don’t recall exactly how this came about, but it was sudden and it was quite wild. Balloons, confetti, gestures, music, strange sounds and even stranger objects were amongst us. We were dancing and falling and spinning and shouting. There were a few surprised seeming gallery visitors who came around intermittently and then left, very confused. We laughed and laughed. We could not leave, but of course, we eventually had to…

I think it is safe to say that it was an event none of us will soon forget. We will continue this tradition and hope to include more of you if you are interested. We have placed next to the door in the Berg by Nordan Art gallery, where these events take place, a poster with information about The Paper Crown Pass Ceremony and created The Paper Crown Pass Ceremony group. Please join the group inworld if you would like to be there for the next ceremony. If you join us and take photos, please post them in the The Paper Crown Pass Flickr group. Look forward to seeing you there in about a month or so!

The Paper Crown Pass

2

It is finally time for one of the most important Ceremony events of the year, namely the first ever Paper Crown Pass! This challenge was announced by Miss Mich Michabo on Flickr a few days ago and we now have a taker (yes, it is me!). I will accept the prestigious Paper Crown on Sunday, February 7, 2016 at 12 PM SLT at Berg by Nordan Art, seated by the Gallery Orange Cat. The Paper Crown will be worn by me for a month and I must wear the Paper Crown in all pictures I take. These photos will then be added to the especially created Paper Crown Pass Flickr Group. After one month the Paper Crown will then be passed by me to an individual of my choice to which another Paper Crown Pass Ceremony will take place at the Berg by Nordan Art gallery. Each new wearer of the Paper Crown will then do the same, wear for a month and pass to an individual of their choice at Berg by Nordan Art for the Pass Ceremony and so forth. The Paper Crown will eventually end up again with Mich in December 2016. Let me also not forget to mention here that the golden Paper Crown was created by the talented Meli Imako. Hope you can join us for this exciting event!
