On Saturday, 18 April ’09, VB/CO was launched with our performance of:
VB01 – Girl Next Door
at the Vista Hermosa Art Center
On Saturday 17 April 2010 we thought we’d celebrate this first birthday by throwing a spectacular ball for the avatar we believe to be the most often chosen by new residents, Girl Next Door.
But, like a modern-day virtual-Cinderella, our Girl doesn’t just get to attend the fabulous ball in her honor – oh no – hardly!! She’s got a lot of cleaning to do before she gets to dance!
For 24 hours before the ball, the Au Pair Next Door will wash YOUR clothes!
From Noon SLT on Friday 16 April to 1/2 hour before noon SLT on Saturday 17 April, YOU are invited to come to the gallery wearing transferrable clothes. The Au Pair Next Door will give you a laundry basket to put your clothes in, yes this will leave you naked, but she’ll wash as fast as she can, and she’ll even give you a towel to wear while you wait.
The Au Pair Next Door will take your clothes, wash, dry, and iron them, and return them to you nice and warm and smelling clean and fresh.
(We hope to be able to accommodate all fabrics, so in addition to machine washing we will dry clean your fine garments, hand-wash your delicates, and we’ll hand-wash your latex in a very mild soap and air dry it.)
Then from Noon-2pm SLT the Au Pair Next Door will “dance” at the ball in her honor!
For the 24 hours of washing we’d like to have at least 2 people washing clothes at all times – 3 or 4 would be better.
The Noon “dance” will be performed by as many avatars as would like to be on stage. 16-24… perhaps more…
