Below where Nobody Watches...

So here's the pics from last night's JUST WOW Underwater Extravaganza. The show was such a fantastic success - packed house, amazing sets, hauntingly beautiful music picks..... Ladies, I am so proud of you!! :D

This show was Lady Garden's show contribution to Enchantment's "The Little Mermaid" round. A huge thanks to our fantastic audience who came to see the Minxettes swing a leg and fins, and managed to make it into the sim -  this wouldn't have been the same without you all <3

I guess let's short-cut the intro, turn that camera around and get right to it, shall we?

Opening number of the day was our oh-so-charming sea witch SexyS, who got herself a new voice and introed us with that uniqueness which only she can bring to stage.. I seriously admire your bravery for the crazy and unusual, and I am so so so so happy you joined us, S <3 

We still wonder what exactly that underwater cave is she invited us in.... Well let's rather not know... ;D

But wait... already the next curtain! What's about to swim in here.....

The second curtain belonged to two very special people - and I am truely happy to see you two still with us!

This so very magic set was the debut performance of Gal and Rug at Lady Garden 3 years ago - with the state-of-the-art dance gadgets of 2012, mind you. And it was already beyond fantastic back then! Now imagine what those two ladies did after tinkering around with Spot On for the past years :D

They danced themselves into our hearts to "What a wonderful world" - it's still giving me goosebumps just thinking about it... Such a perfect tune for this underwater space void of any noise and hectic. Thanks for bringing this again to stage tonight you two. :)

Thanks for your support of LGC during all this time, it ment a lot to me during our rough times and always will.

Now from the silent beauty of gently moving fins we get to a whole different, more serious matter: There's moments when those inhabitants from down below feel the urge to come up and explore..

For these little fellas, it didn't cost a voice only, it could have gone very wrong had we followed the strict story-telling of Les Freres Jacques with this interpretation of "Le Petit Homard", transl. "The Little Lobster". :D

Set number 3 of the night was our group number, and well... the grid needed sexy lobsters! So here's the Minxettes lobstering it up in grand old fashion cabaret manner.

Left to right we have SexyS, Rug, myself (front), Gal, Aelva, and a very special catch for our lobster bisque fresh out of Ippos ocean - our lovely landlady and "Enchantment" event co-hostess Duchess "Lobsteress" Flux

At this point a very special thanks to my most favorite French lobster, who helped finding this song which, to be honest, couldnt have been more perfect! What would I do without you, Dru

I should have warned you... I took A LOT of pictures, if that wasnt clear yet....  xD But this was seriously so fantastic, we would hate for those who didnt make it into the sim to not be able to participate in some fashion at least..

You all rock the plates so hard, I am so thrilled about having you around for this madness over and over again. (Gosh I feel the Chopsy after-show-high mushyness kick in... See what you're doing?!)

Oh and beforementioned favorite French lobster also sent me this after the show..... This is how we clap pincers at Lady Garden!

Next up was Aelva, that little pearl coming out of the seashell...  and radiating with her presence through the whole ocean.

As per usual, she picked the most hauntingly beautiful tune, and it was still ringing in my mind when waking up so I had to go deal with these pictures so I could listen to it some more. ;)

Thank you for being who you are! (and also for sinking Kismet's pirate ship... that bitch had it coming, I tell you....... ;D)  (oh wait... on retrospect, it could have been herself......... Let's rewind this in a moment and analyze....)

Curtain No. 4 belonged to LuLu, who we like to very much welcome to the Family :) Maybe unknown to our regular patrons, she's most definitely not a stranger to the stage. This was her debut set at LGC, and it couldnt have been any better.

We're glad to have you LuLu, thanks for bringing this gorgeous set to stage tonight and batteling the lag like one of the big fish ;) Those bubbles were just amazing and framed the scene so gorgeously.

And the last curtain of the night/day belonged to..... KISMET. What's there to say really - you are fantastic beyond words. I am so glad you could make it, would have been so sad if traffic had gotten the better of you.

A huge thank you for taking over the steering wheel today and showing us how Maine Lobsters do it by pulling out the DJ talents - this was great, I loved the tunes and for those of you who haven't noticed yet, Kismet is clearly my very favorite person to pick on... ;)  So I think we can safely say "Maine Lobster FTW" ;)

So that's it for the recap, I hope it gave you a good idea of what you missed if you were unable to attend or parts of the sets weren't fully rezzed, and allows you to dwell in memories if you caught it live.

Thanks so much to the whole Enchantment Team for your efforts and letting us be part of the adventure! We are excited to see this event so much more versatile then just "another shopping thing".

A very warm welcome to all our first time visitors and thank you to all our long time Patrons for coming to see this very special event! We hope you enjoyed watching this show as much as we did creating it.

And most important, thank you all for your generous tips during the night. :)

....I think this pirate was not expecting to be mugged by some critters....

Watch out for our next magical journey when it's time to raise the curtain again in about 3 months for another "Enchanted Lady Garden" (date and theme TBA).

Love and Kisses,
Chandra and the Minxettes
