This presentation served as my speech guide for new students at the Centro Universitário Belas Artes de São Paulo in 2022. Its purpose is to explain the workings of the Second Life/Metaverse universe and how designers can utilize the game as a creative medium while establishing their businesses.

To start this journey, first, you need to go to Create an Account and choose your Avatar Name.

Like the more broadly known The Sims, Second Life's entire ecosystem is created around the Avatars.
You can Create, Edit, Save your body shape, and add every type of accessory possible to come up with an Avatar that fits your body type.

Nowadays, every element of the Avatar is a Product created by us, the Creators of Second Life.
As the example shows, you can buy products to attach to every part of your body, like Skin, Hair, Jewellery, Body Modifications, The Body Itself, Clothing, Footwear, Accessories, and so much more.

Most Second Life Brands sell their product in many ways, and the most important one is the "Physical Store inside Second Life", where your customers visit and buy your new/past items.

"Coming back to Earth," we have the [Chris Two Designs]'s FullSim Shop, created to be the OCTOPOUS'S PLAYGROUND. 
The Store/Island was created with a behind-the-scenes story:
Where many Octopuses live here, going inside the middle tube to the top of the Store and Jumping for fun, making their favorite living environment.

A place that customers can visit and explore to see the vast structures and elements that composes the [Chris Two Designs]'s FULL SIM in-world Store Shopping Experience.

The Octopus: First and foremost, why an Octopus? 
The Octopus is an extraordinary, SO SMART creature with many abilities, like camouflage, hunting, and escaping. It's very organic and, at the same time, has a perfect eight pattern with its legs (a characteristic that comforts me), connecting with the memory of my late grandfather, a Marine, during his youth back in Spain. So I decided to get a Tattoo in his memory, combining my gramps and the Octopus as a symbol/element that I use and carry around with me.

Welcome to the [Chris Two Designs] shop! 

Our ever-changing and evolving interior!

Our ever-changing and evolving interior!

At the entrance, you can find our Event Stands with our newest products and the Event Landmark so you can grab the product in the Event.

When you arrive at the Event, it works like a Real Life Booth Convention. You have many Brands, each with its own Booth Space. You must walk or zoom in at the [Chris Two Designs] Booth.

Now at the [Chris Two Designs] Booth, you can check the many options if you haven't yet, and make your purchase.

The Event Display is active for one month. After that period, the product returns to the Shop, and the Instore Display is Activated.

As soon as the product is back at the Store, it also gets added to our SLMarketplace Shop.
