Inspired by a recent post by Huckleberry Hax about his SL Dictionary of Virtual Experience: Inventory, I decided to come up with some new words for an SL dance dictionary.
I love words and wordplay – inventing these was a ton of fun.
Maybe I’ll come up with some SL puns next. 😛
Without further ado, the SL Dance Dictionary:
Divaphobia: the fear of having to work with a diva
Ichabodancer: a dancer who is wearing a mesh body that doesn’t rezz and appears as a dancing head to the audience
Slip-n-Glide: moving avatars who appear to glide across the floor while dancing
Brokankles: oddly shaped/bent ankles caused by dance animations
Distadancer: a dancer who remains at the far back of the stage during the entire routine
Lagvoidance: avoiding a particular venue because the lag is always terrible
Facenova: someone who insists on wearing a facelight made with halogen bulbs the size of the sun
Crashdancer: a dancer who repeatedly crashes during a performance
Camversion: the act of avoiding camming around a venue for fear you will cause yourself to crash
Assisticurtains: people who try to be helpful by opening the curtains, causing the curtains to open and close multiple times during a routine
Invisidancer: when you’re told to set to midnight, but the set isn’t lit and you can’t see the dancer
Ghost Movers: when extra movers appear on the stage that aren’t supposed to be there
Déja View: when you think you’ve seen a routine before, but you can’t remember for sure
Avahorde: when there are so many avatars at a venue that you can’t get in, or if you get in, you can’t move
Peekaboob: when a dancer wears a mesh costume and a physics layer, causing their boobs to peek in/out of their costume as they dance
Those are my contributions – what do you think?
Do you have any words I should add to my dance dictionary?
