FIRST SOLOGAMIST WEDDING IN THE METAVERSE
HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY 2022!
As some of you already know, I'm a Sologamist, which means I'm married to myself.
On July 16th, 2016, I married myself in real life among a crowd in front of the Lourdes Grotto in the South of France. It was in real life, with my actual body.
But now the Metaverse is coming up!
So, I decided to renew my vows and marry myself in the Metaverse for Valentine's Day.
I picked the famous DECENTRALAND. For those who don't know about Decentraland yet, it's a Metaverse;
in other words, it's a virtual universe you enter as a 3D character. You can interact with other people from all over the world. For example, Paris Hilton (I guess you all know about her) performed in last October's first metaverse music festival. So here we are! On Valentine's Day 2022 I put my virtual reality headset on to enter the online Metaverse to conduct the first Sologamist Wedding among a virtual crowd of strangers. I married myself in the main venue of the famous Decentraland Metaverse, Genesis Plaza.
I pronounced my vows:
- Éva Ostrowska, do you take Éva Ostrowska to be your wedded wife, to live together in marriage?
- I do!
- I, Éva Ostrowska, take you, Éva Ostrowska to be my wife, to have and to hold from this day forward, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness, and in health, to love and to cherish, till death do us part. I will love and honor you all the days of my life.
Then I celebrated my solo wedding with a party held in a club in Decentraland, where I danced with other people in virtual reality, including a giant DogeCoin character.
Finally, in honor of my Metaverse Wedding, I minted my real-life wedding dress and ring (both in real life & digitally) as collectible NFTs. Click the link to see my Opensea collection
Voilà! It's official! I'm now married to myself in real life and in the Metaverse!
