Deiselpunk is an alternate version of a future 1950’s from the developed technology and society of the 1930’s, Where the Great Depression never arrived and World War II is still being fought as a prolonged Cold War.

SL Destinations: Historic Replicas by ASU

Welcome All!
Revan here :), The Wife and I were feeling a bit Rockabilly Retro today, So I searched for a sim to fit our mood.
I came across a true Gem., The Arkansas State University had 2 sims that fit our theme perfectly.

0715MonRev11
What a VAST destination! We got more than we expected. There are actually 6 sims Total owned by ASU., 2 campus, including an
orientaion area with Art Gallery, 3 historic recreations by Painter Meriman and 1 set aside as a Leisure sim with Beach.

0715Monday_011
The Regions have MANY points of interest, Too numerous to cover all in one post,

But We will highlight the spots we found enjoyable.

You may begin at ASU’s Virtual Campus Start point.
http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/ASU%20Virtual%20Campus/160/96/24

0715MonRev12
Here you will find unusual Art Exhibits and Interactive galleries.
Be sure to Transport to each area in the Art Building via the large banner flags in front.
We had a great time on the turtle ride touring a giant Aquarium!

 0715MonRev6

Fascinating Historic Information with RL Pics can be seen at The Southern Tenant Farmer’s Museum which highlights the work
of John L. Handcox.
http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/ASU%20Virtual%20Heritage/136/61/25

0715MonRev7
John L. Handcox (1904-1992); was a Great Depression-era tenant farmer and union advocate from Arkansas renowned for his
politically charged songs and poetry.

This place is AMAZING!, They have even replicated Ernest Hemingway’s Studio.
http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/ASU%20Virtual%20Heritage/49/138/22

0715Monday_015
During the 1930s A barn was converted into a studio to give Hemingway privacy for writing.
Portions of one of his most famous novels, A Farewell to Arms, and several short stories were written in this studio.

0715MonRev13

Moving along, We came across Country Music Singer Johnny Cash’s boyhood home in Dyess Circle.
http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/ASU%20Dyess%20Colony/136/102/23

0715MonRev9 0715MonRev8
This is a recreation of The Cash family home in Dyess Arkansas as it was during the 1940s.

0715MonRev1
Check out the the rest of this town. There’s a Pop-shop, Cinema, & other colony display homes here, It’s like a step back
in time.

0715Monday_019
Something I found interesting was that The University actually owns Mr.Cash’s childhood home & The Dyess Circle Community;
Read about it here => http://arkansasheritagesites.astate.edu/AHS/Dyess.html

 Exploring a bit more we come across a piece of Antique Southern Beauty.

A scale model of The Lakeport Plantation House in Lake Village, Arkansas.
http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/ASU%20Virtual%20HeritageS/249/121/22

0715MonRev3
This palatial estate is One of Arkansas’ premiere historic structures.
Lakeport is the only remaining Arkansas plantation home set on the Mississippi River.
It was built in 1859 for Lycurgus and Lydia Taylor Johnson, Who were part of a political dynasty that extended from
Virginia to Kentucky to Arkansas.

Jump on the Horse & Carriage awaiting you for a tour around the estate with cotton fields.

0715Monday_004
Opposite of The Lakeport Mansion are tour boats and rafts.
The Raft will take you to the tragic sunken town of Napoleon.
http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/ASU%20Virtual%20HeritageS/132/137/24

0715Monday_001

Just stand up when destination reaches its point and walk off the pier to find this RL Historic replica underwater.
There are plenty of signs around to tell you the story of what happened and when.

0715Monday_002 0715Monday_003
If You take the row Boat, You will then tour a serene swamp, great for photos.

0715Monday_007
There is also a wooden shack complete with rocking chairs on the porch to hang out.

 0715Monday_006
I hope you enjoy this fantastic region as we did, It is chocked full of food for thought.
I wish You a GREAT time until we read again!

0123VintageBrown1_009

I went down to Virtual Harlem where they have The Cotton Club and snapped some fun pics there and in front of the World Famous Apollo Theater.

0123VintageBrown1_006

I was singing a Cab Calloway song while on stage:

I love to sing-a
About a moon-a and a June-a and a spring-a,
I love to sing-a,
About a sky of blue-a, and a tea for two-a,
Anything-a with a swing-a, or a “I love you-a,”
I love, I love to sing!

Oh yes..I was a star for a day dahlin!’

Hola mi amigo hermoso!
Welcome to Spain!
Here is a country rich in History, Art, Cinema, & Architecture, Delicious seafood and Beautiful people. I put together 2 looks based on this country’s traditional clothes. I managed to showcase an affordable yet very feminine & classy look.
First, I found the cutest dress to represent the Sexy Latina side of this post.

I am wearing a Flamenco inspired dress made of see thru lace. Teasing with a peek of ample breast and a sizzling white thong. This dress comes with several layers.

You can leave it short for a cocktail look, or add the bottom ruffles to achieve the Flamenco gown shown here.

This sultry Dress comes with 2 Peinetas (I’m wearing both), Earrings, 3-Necklaces (I’m wearing all 3! lol-stretched at diff sizes), bracelets for both arms, Animated Fan, Carnation for mouth and a pair of white heels. Everything has resizer scripts in them, so this is large avy friendly:-)
I wore my own heels with a bow to add my girly-nessness to it. 🙂

The 2nd look I am wearing, I added lace sleeves. I finally got to use this hair I picked up a while ago from Vanity called ‘Ole.
NEW* @ {E}argasms- Raven earrings, shown here in Silver
The purse from Spiders had roses on it and was more of a wrist bag. These N-Core shoes are my favorite. I think they match the hair, kinda adds a vintage feel to the total look.
