Festival of Sin: Acedia

festival of sin

The Festival of Sin is back for a second opportunity for some quality sinning.  My chosen sin this time is Sloth.  I'm too lazy to clean, so there are cobwebs.


The Acedia Single Drawer Side Table comes in 3 versions with two main body options (2 shades of wood, black and white, and gold and silver leaf), or the uberpack with all that plus all the extra things I did because I wanted them even though they might be ridiculous.  Ok, they ARE ridiculous and I didn't feel like making vendors for all 14 colours.  All have a HUD that lets you choose between clean and dusted textures for the base options, and all 14 colours for the trim and drawer handle.  (Please read the instructions to use the HUD, you must touch them a particular place to activate the texture change!)  They also all include 4 versions: a clean version with an opening drawer, a clean version with no moving parts, a cobweb covered version with an opening drawer (with a web in it!), and a cobwebbed version with no moving parts.  All are 1 Land Impact each.  You can also touch the cobwebs to hide or show them, to choose just how many spiders are hanging out in your place.


The Acedia Chandlier also has webbed and not webbed versions, the webbed letting you choose how many webs to display.  The HUD lets you change texture between 12 options for the ceiling medallion, the chain it hangs from, and the chandelier itself (the colours of the Side Table, minus the woods, plus an oil rubbed bronze).  There are 13 colours of electric candles you can choose between to match your decor.


There are also separate cobwebs to match, to invite the invisible spiders on to more surfaces in your house.

Found only at the Festival of Sin, in the Sloth motel, until September 5.

A Garden of Daydream Bulbs

daydream lightbulbs

For this very special Daydream birthday Collabor88 round (can you believe Collabor88 is 4 years old already?  I sure can't!  And I've even been in each birthday round, time flies so fast), I made lightbulbs that light up with dreams.  There are three of them: a flower, a tree, and a butterfly.  When dark, the flower is a bud, the tree is bereft of leaves, and the butterfly perches motionless on the glass.  When lit, the flower blossoms, the tree blooms, and the butterfly takes off and flutters in its enclosure.  (Thank you hyasynth for the gif of them in action!)


Each lamp comes in 7 heights, from no pole to floor lamp, and with a lightbulb not in a fixture- each 1 LI at original size.  There are two versions of each- one is scripted to cast light when lit while glowing and animation, and the other only glows and animates but does not light up (in case the cast light does not fit the lighting scheme of your decor).  The lamp fixtures have 4 metal options (silver, gold, copper, and black), and each interior object has 8 texture options for your choice of colours.


Like most of my lamps and furniture, activating texture change requires the owner touching a particular part of the object first to activate the HUD (so you can have more than one rezzed and have them be different options!  Plus it's lower lag for sim health).  They will stop listening once touched by the owner anywhere, which is recommended!  Plus that way YOU can turn them on and off anyway.


At Collabor88 this month!

The Nivlets

Mix is a new event, aiming to bring back the main stores.  Every month, a bunch of designers either put out a new release, an exclusive recolour an older release, or put an older release on sale.  You use the HUD to skip across the grid for that month visiting all the wonders on offer for you.

From me, some buttons!  The Nivlet Barrette, a barrette with a button and a feather (bundle o' texture options of course), and the Nivlet Bracelets, buttons on a string to tie around your wrists.

To be found at the elephant!

ORIGAMI RIN-NE

The second part of the ORIGAMI event has now opened, the game and hunt!  I really enjoyed the game, I'm loving these story based HUD games that people have been developing recently.  While you have the HUD and are exploring the world of the supernatural, you can also find the coins for the hunt part of the event.  Each store with a gift (the gifts are at booths in the mall area) has a little basket, once you have found their coin and registered it in the HUD you can touch the basket at their booth to receive your gift.  I made a little octopus in a bag to carry, the prize from a goldfish scooping game that was, perhaps, a little peculiar.  The bag can be looped around a finger of your left or right hand to be carried around with you, as he gently undulates up and down.

Grab a HUD at the starting point (you may want to descript a bunch before going, there is a script limit!) and play the game!

Tips for playing the game: Walk everywhere, do not cam!  (Your HUD will light up red in the center when you are walking close to a coin, for one, but you will also get more of the full effect if you walk around!)  Touch everything.  Talk to everyone.  Follow what they tell you when applicable.  (And talk to people again!  Sometimes they have more to tell you!)  To save your progress in the HUD, remove it and reattach it periodically (say, after you finish each quest), so you will not lose ALL your progress if you have a hard crash (sadly, it's just the way SL works, things don't get saved properly until you take them off, and if you crash too hard it can't send the information to save).  If you get stuck, people are helping in the O R I G A M I Group, and there are a lot of English speakers playing so you may find help on the sim from fellow players.  And above all, have fun!

ORIGAMI RIN-NE is open until August 25.

Fishcakes Heels

a mermaid's first day on land

Seasons Story ALSO has a sea theme, timely to go with Collabor88's current mermaid round.  I'm towards the Northeastern corner of the sim, on the outer walk, and you will find chunky fish heeled shoes there. There are 10 different base shoe patterns to choose from, and each shoe comes with 15 different painted fish heel colours, 10 trim colours, 12 colours of starfish button, and the option of tan or black soles.  If you have more than one or the pack, you can also mix toes and sides for yet more options!

shoes for Seasons Story

They come with 3 versions: one for System Feet, one for Slink Mid Feet, and an extra tall one (with more fin!) for Slink High Feet.  They are unrigged and modify, so you may find that they fit other feet as well, but there is no guarantee.

At Seasons Story this month!

Koi-nietzko tights

fish at the festival

Mermaids abound at Collabor88 this month, and I continue to name things words that no one can ever spell.  This time it's sort of an obscure reference of a memorial to hya's poor betta fish who passed away, crossed with "koi" since, well, fishy (and, one hopes, at least THAT part will be easier to search for!)

tights for Collabor88

Semi sheer tights with sheer-er scale cutouts, in 12 colours: 6 packs of 2, or a pack of them all.  They come with Slink Physique appliers (which will also work on the feet- make sure you have the current version!) and Omega appliers, as well as traditional clothing layers.

At this month's Mermaid paradise of Collabor88!

ORIGAMI Summer Festival

ORIGAMI is having a summer festival, a night event with stalls of all sorts.  I have come to love this pair of sims (the second is not open until the game opens on the 10th), so I am very happy I was able to participate in their event this time!

origami festival

I made little hatchling Tengu for it- big nosed Tengu with wings, bird faced Karasu Tengu, and little birdlet Karasu.  The rare Karasu have little crowns and their eggs are gold and silver- the crowns and eggs are texture change with choices of gold or silver on touch. They all inquisitively watch the world from the safety of their eggs, but are not quite ready to finish breaking out and join it.

 You can hold the eggs in left or right hand, to carry your little hatchling around with you.

There is also another event that starts July 10 on the sim- which is how you can get the items at the booths with the baskets full of gold coins.  For now, they are just there to tease you, as you can't get them until the 10th!
