Shauna has already written about the D-Lab store, but didn’t mention the whole island on which the store resides. Created by Onakagoo Epin, the 110-prims Junk is a wonderful whimsical island filled with neat stores, funny animals, robots, and windmills.
It’s funny that I didn’t discover this place by reading Shauna’s article, however, but I found it upon revisiting a place a Stormrider friend of mine took me to last year when i was still writing for ROLE Magazine. The place was a marvelous circus-in-orbit-themed sim and appears to have been remodeled if my pix taken back in April 2009 are any indication. Check my Flickr account for Drill Factory pix and new ones taken for this article.
I love the imagination and creativity that permeates these two sims, but particularly the Circus sim! I’m pretty sure the store selling the merrigoround horses, the crescent moon, and flying dolphins (to name just a few) is new and a great way to own a piece of the fantasy and show support of this delightful sim. The Dance area is huge and dreamlike. The danceballs are few and far between, so unless you pull out a chimera, it’s not crowded–excellent for romance. A trip to the Roof and you can access several more merrigorounds, take a close look at the clever Planetarium Ball (also available for purchase), and just have a breathtaking perspective of the whole incredibly inventive sim. Highly recommended!
