SL19B’s theme is Steampunk, but don’t let that make you feel limited. Just like last year, your exhibit doesn’t have to stick to the theme. Share with us your passions in Second Life. Your interests. Your communities. Your world. Each year we celebrate because of you, the amazing and creative residents who have chosen to call Second Life home.
What drew you to this world and what keeps you here? These annual parties are an opportunity to show us what fuels your Second Life – let’s celebrate together!
The SL19B Shop & Hop event is the official multi-regional shopping event of Second Life‘s 19th annual birthday celebration. This event brings together many of the top merchants from across SL to offer exclusive items and discounts on some of Second Life’s best creations.
Are you a merchant or creator looking to participate? If so, fill out this form by May 8, 2022. We will be filling in stores as we receive applications, so please apply as soon as possible.
