Forget “When Worlds Collide”! This is the place where Latex, Rubber, Plastic, Vinyl, and PVC collide!
I was thinking about The Doll Works and all its playful fun. I opened Second Life Search, and under Places I typed the word “Pink”. The first search result was: The Pink Institute!
if you click on the Daily Booth category, or the Powers of Creation tag, here at KateNova.uk, you’ll see all of the festive avatars and some of the shenanigans that used to go on back in 2009 and 2010. But those images were collected over many days as customers would trickle through the POC shop. TPI is like all of that all at once!
It’s a little bit like one of those meat market dance clubs in the sense that it’s just one big spot where people stand around and who knows what they’re doing. Probably lots of AFK, IMing, and I’m sure plenty of cam perving and profile reading.
So far I haven’t seen Doll Works style activities here. No plastination or dollification machines, auctions, ballet boot races, dance parties, and so on. But the place definitely has the vibe of all the best of POC & DW.
The Pink Institute is the funnerest place I can think of to park my Avi if I’m working on a blog post and need to look stuff up. In addition to the various cages and poles around the plaza, there’s also some lovely furniture to sit on. And while you’re sitting there occasionally somebody awesome like latex applier maker Valarie Thor says hello to you!
