The Nightmare event is back this year, with another haunted house to scare the pants off of you. I made nesting dolls who only slightly look like they want to swallow your soul. Who needs clowns when there are haunted matryoshka? They are modify, so you get to pick how you wish to nest them, the tops pop off to move however you want. When you want to put them back together, the top and bottom are identical sizes/locations/rotations, just copy over one to the other and they will fit right back together perfectly.
And if you are brave enough to get through the haunted house and keep your wits about you enough to complete the hunt, you can get a spike collar at my booth as well. System layers and omega appliers for the slight bit of blood, modify to adjust your fit. They have higher and lower placements (higher is shown), the higher applier requires your mesh head to have a layer over the neck for the blood, the lower uses body layers which are more standard.
The Panic of Pumpkin event is in full swing! It's a Japanese event, on Japanese time which means things are AHEAD of SL time- it's often a day later to the game than you think it is. The event is from October 1 to October 31 midnight Japan time WHICH MEANS that it opened on September 30th at 9am SLT! The day thing means something because not only can you find goodies to buy, but there is a hunt! that it a daily advent style thing. Find the door for the current day and knock on it (say trick or treat, of course!) to get the special thing for that day. Because it runs on Japan time, you may need to knock on a door for the day after when it it for you! After the day has passed, you can buy the gift for 50L.
Aside from that, the venue is adorable, and there is much inventive spooky fun to be had. I made parfaits for it, because Japanese parfaits are my kryptonite. They are amazing. They are adorable, and tasty, and wonderful, and I don't DO parfaits in any other country, but man, Japan knows how to make them magic. I do stay away from the ones bigger than my head though, as tempting as they may be. Have to save some room for the rest of the amazing food, after all.
And for my gift, there are wagashi, Japanese sweets, in the shape of pumpkins. The plates give little temp attachment pumpkins to eat to anyone, and there are also versions for you to eat and hold in your mouth. (They are mod, so you can also do whatever you like with the pumpkins.)
I'm in SaNaRae this month, coinciding with the event's birthday. Because it is the beginning of the spooky season, and I am a spooky sort, I made lab rats for your experiments. Some fly, some have grown extra ears (with piercings, they are hard core like that), and some have extra heads.
The flying and running rats are animated and move around, you can control settings with the menu on touch. All of them are texture change, also in a menu on touch, with assorted options because I wanted too many rats. As it is a birthday round, there are also presents! Because that's what you do on birthdays, right? Everyone has a gift waiting for you, join the free SaNaRae group for goodies. I made some cheese for my rats, so they would not go hungry.
Totally safe, nothing to worry about. You wanted an extra head too, right? Find it all at SaNaRae!
I thought I already posted this, but I guess not! The Arcade is almost over, and it's the ONLY place you will ever be able to find the crystal candelabra player reward- after the event is over that's being retired forever and will never be seen again. You will get it in copy/no transfer perms in addition to your regular gacha prize on your 25th pull, texture change crystals and base for a variety of looks.
The rest of the gacha will be moving home at the end of the event, but not that! The Crystal Cottage is a foray into housing (I don't do buildings often! Especially buildings that aren't elephant shaped, or round, or a giant unicorn...), a small cottage in light and dark options, with some crystal housewares to match. Many of the crystals are texture change with a selection of options- to be as spooky or as pretty pretty princess as you desire.
This month's Collabor88 sees bookcases from me abstract dollhouses for storing your fairy tales full of stories of the forest. They come in empty and filled versions, and each of the three book clusters also as separate pieces, each bit 1 Land Impact. There are 3 available colour options to choose from.
A late addition to ORIGIAMI x UBUME, some makeup! It features a coloured under layer that can be tinted to suit your tastes for even more options than included, and a black detail over layer. Each is divided into all the parts- the under layers are all in one piece, and in brow dots, eyeliner, cheek whiskers, and lip stripes separately, and the over layer is all together in one piece, and in brow dots, upper and lower eyeliner, and just upper eyeliner. So you can pick how much and how to wear it all! For System heads only, mesh heads don't have the layer capacity to support the options.
If you have not played the UBUME game, you should go do that! It ends September 10, and it's really quite impressive.
Schadenfreude is a brand is Second Life, which has a big black elephant on Nouveau and a little cottage in the Munchkin village in Oz.
There are also a few things that were available in world for a limited time for events, or that have been retired from the elephant, that are now ONLY available on the Marketplace. (Including all the hair!)
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!
