Abranimations: Dances, Toys, Avatars, Games and Gadgets




Abranimations is the original content creator of motion captured dances, encoded and digitised for Second Life.  Abranimations has been in-world for as long as Second Life has been around.  In fact the original default animations in your library from Second Life of 13 years ago are the work of its creator Abramelin Wolfe.

Times have changed rapidly from the humble beginnings of Second Life and Abranimations is still the leader in cutting edge real life motion-captured (mo-cap) single and couples dances, with sophisticated HUDS, dance balls and animation overrides.


Inside the store, apart from dances, there are also hundreds of other Toys and Gadgets to try out. 

Whilst visiting London City you may have seen a tarot card table a mud wrestling pool, arm wrestling, spin the bottle, avatar cannon or an air balloon soaring in the sky.  All of these are available in the Abranimations London store.


With such an incredible range of Avatars, fun Accessories, Dances, AOs, Huds and toys, you can spend a good hour or two, just browsing this immense store and seeing what is on offer.

Happy Saint George's Day



Happy Saint George's Day, the Patron Saint of England.

Today marks the day that a fire breathing dragon was slain.  <insert mother in law jokes here>

In old England, brave George is remembered for summoning tremendous strength, courage and determination. He killed the dragon that has been attacking the villagers, destroying their crops and turning their homes into ashes.

Saint George and The Dragon visit London City

St. George was actually an outspoken Roman soldier serving a Pagan Emperor. He protested the treatment and torture of Christians by his fellow Romans. 

He paid for his beliefs when he made a plea to the Emperor Diocletian to spare the lives if Christians. The Emperor decided that if George cared so much for these lowly citizens, then he must also be a devout Christian himself.  He was tortured to force him to deny his faith and when this did not yield the desired response, he was beheaded, at the age of 33.


The slaying of the dragon is symbolic of the courage George showed against the Emperor.  It is however a little ironic that George did not win his battle, nor did he ever set foot in England.  He was born in Turkey and died in Palestine.

Saint George's day was adopted in 1222, when he replaced Saint Edmund the Martyr (King of East Anglia) as England's Patron Saint.

Margarita Pracatan set to wow London City



Margarita Pracatan is a Cuban singer who found unexpected success in the 1990s.

Her big break came on the Clive James TV show where each week Margarita would play out the show, singing  her own unique rendition of a beautiful ballad performed on a Casio electronic organ, often with an unusually fast beat.

For the first time ever in London City, Margarita performs a breathtaking show which also serves as a heartwarming Birthday message to her Majesty The Queen, who turned 90 during the week.

A show not to be missed!

Party starts 12pm SL (8pm UK) with the concert an hour later at 1pm.
