    Neko Wedding In Second Life


    I went to a very special wedding tonight, it was a Neko wedding.  Nekos in Second Life are half cat and half human, and the wonderful couple, groom Roach Benelli and his lovely bride Garciella Werefox, have chosen to live their virtual lives as Nekos.  I had the wedding invitation that stated that guests could wear anything they wanted, providing they had a tail and cat’s ears.  So I made sure I was dressed for the part as I teleported over to the venue.


    The wedding was held at 'Rhythm in Heaven' in the Hart and Soles sim, and it was just right for a Neko wedding, like something out of a fairytale, but not overdone, the chapel was sweetly decorated with little stone benches and roses trailing around the small pavilion where the bride and groom read their vows to each other. The best man, who was in fact a lady, was Willow Cascarino and the very pretty bridesmaid was Treasure Vhargon.


    The clothing for Neko daywear is usually styled on grunge and Roach and Garciella’s wedding clothes were more in keeping with this, rather than the traditional white wedding dress and tux.  They looked amazing though, both having so much detail to their costumes, right down to their ear piercings and studded footwear.


    The small wedding party of close friends was just the right size for the sim, although conditions were a  little laggy, it was fine and people could move around without any trouble.  After the in-world wedding service, which was taken by Draham Muircastle, the happy couple took to the dance floor, as the guests congratulated them.


    It is Roach’s second SL wedding, however, he and Garciella seem absolutely devoted to each other, and I would like to wish them a long and very happy marriage.
