Animal Parade poster by Trill Zapatero

Our new dramaturge, Trill Zapatero was so inspired by VB42 – Avatar Pride Parade, that she immediately challenged us to do a new parade on Saturday 19 Jan ’13, an Animal Parade on the Sydney sim. Whether you’re an animal lover, an animal rights activist, an RP enthusiast, or just love to dress up, Zapatero has invited us all to have one of those “Impossible IRL” experiences that are so easy to come by in virtual space.

The challenge is easy: come as any species, other than human, of your choice. There are many free and premium animal avatars around the grid, and in fact, there are 12 free animal avatars just waiting for you in your:

    Yordie bursts into song:
    “I love a parade, the tramping of feet,
    I love every beat I hear of a drum.
    I love a parade, when I hear a band
    I just want to stand and cheer as they come.
    That rat-a tat-tat…” and la dada dah.. and I can’t remember the words of this song…
    (and Yordie’s mind drifts off to visions of her in her lioness threads.)

    And don’t forget the Blue Galaxy cats: They are all mesh and there are lots of mods available for them.
