Lots of racing

A day at the races

Lots of funny vehicles at Burn2

The weekend of the Burn2 races just passed, when there was another fun race event. A member of the German board SLInside made a cute freebie plane and made it modifiable, and quickly there was a decision made to make a competition for the finest modification and the fastest flyer on a prepared course. Unfortunately I spent more time to dress for success then to make a fun flyer:

So my plane didn’t win the beauty contest, with all that creativity around, but actually I won the race.
Here you can see a video of the event, with lots of the planes, the course, and me dancing 😉

And here is a video I done while I was training, with exactly the same laptimes:

The race outfit was definitely inspired by Amelia Erhart whom I admire quite a bit for her coolness in times women where tied to household and nurse based work.

I made closer shot to demonstrate that I even included my Black Velvet jewelry

and the best thing? Laughton, a member of my home community on SL paints all members and made a painting of me in the dress:
