The 8th is once again upon us, as is another round of Collabor88. This month the theme is Industrial Chic, and I went with furniture- an antique apothecary cabinet rescued from a doctor's office. The cabinets come in 2 versions, distressed by age old chipped enamel, and a repainted and restored option. The front door swings open and shut on touch, and you can choose to remove any or all of the glass shelves to adjust the interior for what you wish to keep in there. They are materials enabled, with a bit of dynamic shine to the enamel and yet more to the glass.
The Apothecary Cabinets are only to be found at Collabor88 this month!
Another Fifty Linden Friday, another Vestday. And this time another trio of seasonally appropriate vouboos. Skulls AND sugar, is there really any better holiday? They are rezzed out on the coffee table so you can see them in person.

And some skully vests for the season too (sorry snakes and eagle/ravens, your stripes are next month!) The Crypt one matches the Crypt Fanceh Pants, of course- the other matches the colourful corset in the Electro-cute skull pack.

I'm way early this time! That's because Thursday night, the night I would be putting things out normally, is HALLOWEEN. And I may be out on the town at some party or haunted house instead, all Bride of Frankesteined up (tonight I have to stop procrastinating and finish bleaching my streaks and make sure I _can_ actually get my hair up in that beehive).
I have teeth on the brain this year, Curio Obscura is to blame. First it was the Abomination Boots for The Arcade, and now the Mouthfaces for Horrorfest- you can see Hungry there on the ground though I've been creeping everyone out in my vicinity with it as my face lately (and I may never take off the crystal ball typing replacement, sorry everyone for all the random lights and sparklies every time I speak). My teeth are a bit less monstrous (I still wonder how they chew with their pointy teeth, and never mind how they close those jaws), hand drawn on bright coloured platform heels.
Horrorfest is open, full of all sorts of spooky and bloody things. You can only find this corset there- the Bloody Dompteuse corset, a rigged mesh underbust corset in Standard Sizes for men and women (yes boys, finally you can wear the underbust corsets too). 100% of the sales of this item go towards Horrorfest's charity of choice, the Epilepsy Therapy Project.
Some spooky little things for October, Into the Woods dresses that have gotten a bit lost in there and found by spiders, and some skully fanceh pants.
The Lost in the Woods dresses are the same dress base that I made for the Into the Woods dresses (which still aren't back yet, sorry!), but instead of the foresty lace, feature silvery spiderwebs (in a materials viewer they are extra shimmery, the white, especially, is less so in a no materials viewer- both are rezzed out in the elephant on dress forms though so you can see what they really look like for you). Rigged mesh, Standard Sizes for the ladies (sorry boys! Part of the holdup on the Into the Woods dresses is the boyifying).
Also a pair of Fanceh Pants with a dark grey and black skull print- Standard Sizes for men and women. The rest of the Fanceh Pants will be around...eventually, this is all you can find for the moment.
I keep returning to my Jack o'Lanterns. One of these days, I'll carve new ones, but I kind of like the faces of that 6, so when something new comes along, they eventually get updated. This time it's a big update- mesh! They've been totally rebuilt to be more streamlined, 1 prims and 1 Land Impact each at a reasonable pumpkin size (I made some a bit large around the Starlust, and they're still all only 1LI each), and they also come with 6 uncarved pumpkins now, and there are more colours.
Like, lots more colours, because I'm crazy. There are, of course, a selection of oranges to mix, white Luminas and blue-grey Jarrahdales, a couple of speckled more gourd types, a variety of solid colours not seen in nature, and greyscale desaturated for those who shun colour. Most of them come with 2 options, all 12 pumpkins included with both, 3 packs (2 of orange shades and the desaturated) come with 3 texture options with all 12 pumpkins in each. There's also a scripted uberpack of all 23 textures, that lets you change the inside to either traditional orange or tintable white (which the desaturated pack has) that will change light colour to what to tint the inside to when lit. Materials enabled with a soft sheen to the skin, and they use projector lights, so they cast their faces on anyone or anything in front of them.
And yes, you do spy with your little eye a treat bucket in there. This year's treat bucket is finally out (I'm always kind of late!)- swing by the elephant and touch the treat bucket on the coffee table to get one of your own. Then click click click your bucket and encourage others to do the same!
With the death of onrez, I have no comprehensive web based gifting systems. Selections of items are on the Second Life Marketplace.
I am also very happy to gift items for you if you contact Allegory Malaprop directly! And you can also get old fashioned gift cards, if you contact me directly (sadly, many gift card systems are prone to security holes that can open up with no notice- if I do it by hand I can keep track a bit better...in theory).
I don't have a blogger list, for a number of reasons. I love seeing things blogged! I just don't do blogger lists, or review copies beyond some events. I totally do respect that blogging is expensive, even with promotional copies, and I'm sorry, but this is what works for me.
p.s. I do love to chat (though I'm not actually good at it- you'll probably have to carry the conversation!), so do feel free to talk to me anyway!
