Well, tell us something we didn’t know eh? <Chuckle> If you’re looking for something absolutely fascinating to visit in-world, and you like all things HARRY POTTER then you’re in for a treat.
In case you aren’t aware there’s an absolutely vibrant roleplay community called MISCHIEF MANAGED in-world, and each year they throw a fantastic fair where you can purchase all kinds of magical items from clothing to jewellery to animals to everything that any aspiring Wizard, Witch or Magician could possibly require.
Last year was a treat of a trip to Diagon Alley, but this year we’ve been cordially invited into Hogwarts School Of Witchcraft & Wizardry itself. If you haven’t visited before then you’ll be delighted to know that Hogwarts has indeed been built in-world and it looks absolutely astonishing too. Role-play really isn’t my cup of tea at all but I can see why this is one of the most successful ones on the grid; quite simply it is perfect, from the exterior build of Hogwarts itself into the actual castle which has been carefully constructed to resemble the books (and of course the films) as closely as possible. You can’t help but feel a sense of excitement, if not a little trepidation, as you wander around the halls. I loved every minute of my visit.I also absolutely loved some of the items on sale too; there are Gacha machines galore as well as carefully crafted poses, props and all kinds of wonders inspired by the film for you to buy. My absolute favourites were the carnivorous plants that feature animations and sound to the touch, but there’s also some stunning wearables from big Second Life names like CAE and KIBITZ, along with the WHITE WIDOW ‘Insidious’ tattoo that I’ve previously blogged and refuse to take off at the moment (because owls!)Even if you’re not mad on all things Potter but have love for Witching and Wizardry in general, be assured that you’ll find plenty here to please. I cannot recommend this event enough and who knows, you may find yourself tempted to apply to join the academy? (Details are HERE) Be sure to check this event out before it closes at the end of July, and I hope you enjoy your visit as much as I did!
