Dress The Night Away: Update

The finalists for the Dress The Night Away contest have been selected! And no I’m not going to say who they are – you’ll have to watch Trion’s Livestream on Twitch this Friday, November 15th at 11:30 am PST for the big reveal, and to help select the winners! Click here if you need the link.

So why am I posting? Because I need you all to be aware that those of you who have been selected as finalists will be contacted by RiftScene in the next few days. I realize that this is vague because I can’t give anything away but please please please check your email and in game mail for the next few days. It is very important that we get in contact with you before the livestream. We will only be contacting the finalists.

Dream Dimensions 101 – Valzen @Greybriar

Santa’s House.
Legion of Carnage Guild

Cottage Connoisseur & Christmas.
So busy  as I fumble with sleep patterns still after Extra Life  excited to say hi as Telara prepares  for the festive season ahead and who better to lead us their but Valzen a returned veteran Dimensioneer who loves to color her life and ours  in rich, sweet yet humble creations.

Finer Details.
Valzen  is an artist with an natural eye for beauty whose home life is her favorite pallet to draw from and place in each Dimension she builds. Her decadent touch has a simplicity and strategy that is truly masterful especially in lighting and contrasting color.  Stepping into each Cottage is like being wrapped in a warm shawl on a cold evening and so in this video we visit three of them, her Kestrals Cry Ravine “Santa’s House” making me feel like I was in a Telarian sized snow globe the amount of care and thought given a whimsical feast.

Gifted Creations.
This really is the perfect window of opportunity to roll out the red carpet into the festive season preparing for celebration and comfort and if you are not aware of the competition I refer to on the Rift Official forums please check:
