If you’ve managed to decipher my blog title, then you’ve figured out that this is my super happy fun time Arcade blog post of the round.  As I’m sure everyone around the grid knows, The Arcade starts Sunday, September 1st at midnight… And it’s not just any old Arcade this time either. Nope, this round marks the ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY SINCE IT STARTED! *throws confetti and cake everywhere* In just the past year, The Arcade has become one of the most popular events to ever hit the virtual world of Second Life. Filled with amazingly talented creators who work their butts off every round to provide us with some of most detailed and creative items seen, we continue to see new and original things every round. I’m fairly sure that me and everyone else says this every round, but it does seem to get better and better with every round. So I ask you all a question. What is your favorite Arcade item from ANY of the Arcade rounds? Is it one of the many adorable plushies that Intrigue has been treating us with the past year? The Ohmai Piglets?  The Disney themed charms and bows from Noodles? Maybe the geeky pet rocks from Olive? If you think about it, I bet it’s really hard for a lot of you to pick. Personally, mine would have to be the Piglets from Ohmai, specifically the Harry Potter and Doctor Who themed ones… though there are a lot of things this round that I love beyond love (ROSE, I’M LOOKING AT YOU, YOUR BAGS ARE AMAZING.) This round has so many Doctor Who themed items too, that I just… I can’t even with. I want, no, I NEED them all. I need the bunny ears from Half Deer, I need all of the glasses ever from Flowey, I need the charms from Noodles. Need need need and more need. And I know I’m not alone in this huge want and need of these and more items. So everyone, start your engines, sell your kids, maybe even your grand kids if you got them, empty out the piggy banks, scourer the couch cushions, tell your significant other that you love them and prepare yourself, because The Arcade is just less then 24 hours away., and it’s gonna be a good one.

After a long day of shopping around The Arcade, Natalee, Nara and Rose collapse, exhausted on a bed and throw their things on the ground, happy that they are done spending all their money.
