Friendship Bear Birthday Reimagining

Back on November 6th, 2003, I registered an account for an unknown game “Second Life” with less than 1,000 users at the time. I was immediately met by some helpful residents and shown the ropes. I was most interested in building, and so I created my first object in SL – the “Friendship Bear”. I made it to thank those who helped me find my way, and passed it freely to everyone I knew and met as a token of friendship.

This was 9 years ago, full permissions were pretty much default and so the friendship bear spread like wildfire throughout Second Life, bringing happiness and joy to many; it even showed up in all kinds of strange products, builds and even art installations by Starax Statosky.

Today I celebrate my 9 year ‘rezday’ as a Second Life community member, and I couldn’t think of a better way to thank everyone who has continued to make my stay pleasant than to revisit the classic Friendship Bear and bring him to the current decade.

You can find the bear at FATEisland, and on the Marketplace FOR FREE. This bear comes with copy and transfer permissions, ready to spread across the grid once more. You can wear the bear, or place it out as a decoration for only 1 land impact (1 prim cost).

Here’s to 9 more years, enjoy!

-Damien Fate.
