I would like to add Holli Holli Hollwood to the list live music, etc. She did a lot to help bring the live music scene to SL through her club Blue Fusion. She recently closed it down but it operated for two years, which I am thinking is a long time for a club in SL. http://www.bluefusionsl.com/

Miro Collas

Sebastean Steamweaver

Patrick Lichty/Man Michinaga

I second Zayn Till. Really unexpected stuff.

Iggy O

I've profiled Viv Trafalgar at:


Sioban McMahon

Oh, I'd love to see a profile of Betty Doyle. I'm a long time fan of her dresses.

If you are adding to the list, I'd like to nominate Derry McMahon under community leaders.


Please, enlighten me on uberexplorers who share their discoveries of fantastical experiences!

Mako Kungfu

I've profiled Jez Oh's shop Oblique Avatars for the Cioccolata sim blog -- she just moved her mainstore in. http://alberogssm.wordpress.com/2009/09/18/welcome-oblique-avatars/

Thanks for this opportunity, Hamlet -- really great to see these personalities get some recognition!

Saffia Widdershins

I've profiled Lunata Lupino on the Prim Perfect blog - see:http://primperfectblog.wordpress.com/2009/09/19/lunata-lupino-in-darkwood-gardens/. And do use any of the photos that you want :-)

Dio Kuhr

I am very happy to see Zayn Till's name on the list!
He originally brought Raglan Shire into existence, and has nurtured and helped develop one of the most amazingly creative communities in Second Life.
I interviewed him for a blog post in response to this article: http://misa-delight.blogspot.com/2009/09/interview-with-zayn-till.html

I really hope he gets featured on NWN!

Dio Kuhr

Well, if it's not too late to get one more included under this challenge, I really wanted to talk about Betty Doyle at Ingenue. I've posted a piece about this retro-inspired designer and her work at:
