Treat Bucket

My very first year of Schadenfreude, not long after I started at all, I made a treat bucket to give away.  And I've made one every year since- this is the 8th bucket!

trick or treat

The bucket is waiting for you in the elephant, on the dresser.  Touch the empty owl bucket to get your own!  Then touch your bucket for sweets and silly toys!

the treat bucket lives!
(You should go trick or treating at Havenhollow.  You can get another treat bucket there too!)

This year, there are some sneaky extra buckets as well- a few VIP groups have special versions.  My group, of course, gets a bucket.  But there is also a bucket for hyasynth's ~silentsparrow~ twittery birds, and the *katat0nik* group has a special bucket for you too.

This round of Collabor88 is Spoopy Motel, spooking up the place in honour of my favourite holiday. I made a pair of nightstands and a pair of lamps for it.

bones motel

There are normal versions, bare bones plain nightstands and simple turned wood lamps.  The nightstands include a HUD with 9 handle options, and 4 books- the drawers open and close on touch, one version also has a book inside the drawer, and you can choose any of the 4 books to be in the drawer.  The lamps have a HUD with 7 lampshade options, touch to turn on and off.

There are also a version of each for when you wake up on the fright side of the bed.  The nightstands have the same 4 books and optional book in drawer, but the handle has been replaced with a humerus, and the front feet are, well, feet.  The handle and feet change to 11 different options (2 colours of bone) with a HUD.  The lamp has the same 7 lampshades and also lights up on touch, but also lets you choose to make the bones match the base, or between two colours of bone.


Spoopy Motel is taking reservations at Collabor88 this month!

RMK Gothic

There's an event going on at RMK Gothic right now, you do tasks and get coins to play a gacha for prizes.  You are an apprentice magician, and you have to learn how to do magic stuff!  One of the prizes is a witchy lil vouboo from me:

zitga vouboo

(You can see all the prizes at the official blog.)

Many people have been confused by how to do it, as RMK Gothic is a Japanese sim- there are some English instructions but you may not find them clear.  So I'm going to try to tell you what to do.

Miami Electric

In the 80s, I was into neon.  In a bit of a huge way- while most of my clothes were black (gee, how times have changed...), I had this weird horrible affection for don't-look-directly-at-it-or-you'll-go-blind neon pieces to go with that.  (Yeah...times really haven't changed THAT much.  I still have a few of those things...but not as many, and I don't wear them as much.)  This month's Collabor88 theme was all about that blinding neon in the 80s, though with more of a Miami angle (I never cared for Miami Vice, I preferred my cop shows to have talking cars and no actual cops).  I used it as an excuse to FINALLY finish something that's been pretty much done for years, but I didn't want to do the very last boring steps of to release: seamless fishnets. These come in leggings and gloves format, with Slink Physique appliers included for those of you mesh body addicts (and Slink hand appliers for the gloves, of course)- leggings means no fighting with your feet and having to stumble around in inventory finding the stocking HUD, though you're still stuck with fumbling for the HUD to show your gloves.

To go with, there are also a selection of fun bright eyeshadows in the colours of this round.

The Forest Masquerade at The Arcade

floating bat

The Arcade is running this month, and I made 9 masks to win for it.  Masks can be worn or hung on the wall as display.  Each display mask is 1LI, and when rezzed on the ground will have a hanger, hanging ribbons, and shadow prim.  Touch for options to hide hangers and ribbons, as well as changing ribbon colours from the ones I chose to match each mask.  Worn masks are just masks- there are ribbons to tie around your head available as a gift at the venue (plus some extra makeup bits and nose alphas).

forest masquerade

Each mask is texture change with 12 mask texture options (because 9x12 is toooo many for a gacha!)

Beware the Sirens

"First you will come to the Sirens who enchant all who come near them. If any one unwarily draws in too close and hears the singing of the Sirens, his wife and children will never welcome him home again, for they sit in a green field and warble him to death with the sweetness of their song. There is a great heap of dead men's bones lying all around, with the flesh still rotting off them."

-Homer's Odyssey, book XII


sirens

This month, Collabor88 is an extra big birthday round: all the guests from the past year have been invited back, and we are holding it in the larger venue from last year.  There's a lot to see!  The birthday theme is Homer's Odyssey, and I drew my inspiration from the Sirens who lure sailors to death with their songs.  While they've become equated with mermaids, the Sirens were actually bird women, not fish women, companions of Persephone who failed to save her from abduction by Hades.  Their song is their lament at their loss of her, achingly beautiful but full of terrible longing that breaks the hearts of all who hear it.

Amphitrite Athena

Feathers hint at scales in a mermaid skirt style, referencing both their avian and aquatic natures.  The dresses are materials enabled and come in 9 colours for the event: the 6 solids of the colour palette and 3 colour combinations, each named after a goddess with a connection to the three patron gods of this round- Athena, goddess of wisdom and daughter of the god of the heavens, Zeus; Amphitrite, goddess of the saltwater seas and wife of the god of the waters, Poseidon; and Persephone, goddess of the death and rebirth cycle of nature, and the Queen of the god of the underworld, Hades.  They come in the 5 Standard Sizes for women, and also include VERY EXPERIMENTAL Fitted Mesh versions for men and women.  Fitted mesh is VERY picky around certain areas where this dress is cut (it may move and resize...but not in the direction or to the same degree as the avatar), so it will not fit properly unless you adjust yourself to suit it in those areas!  Gentlemen, I imagine you're used to nipping and tucking as if your life depending upon it if you want to fit into a dress as it is, but these are more for the Milk than for the Divine.

Persephone

To go with the dresses this round are tattoo layer makeup in a matching colour palette, named after the sorceress Circe, who turned Odysseus' crew into swine upon their visit to his island.  Each makeup pack contains three colours- one each of the solids to represent that realm in the palette of the round, and one to match the goddess chosen for it.  All come with and without forehead and cheek contouring (the forehead and cheek contouring also come separate for more laying options), and with and without strong flat black brows.

All to be found at Collabor88 this month.

Wombats!

wild things wombats

Received Items is holding a Where the Wild Things Are gacha event that I am a part of- I made animated wombat pets for it.  They are along the same lines as the piggies: wear and they will hang out with you and follow you as you walk around, rez then and you can pick to have them stand around or wander in a set area.  The Magic wombat matches hya's roo rats for the same event (no great surprise: we are next to each other at the venue), as does the flightless wom-bat a little bit (the wings are just for show, he doesn't fly, like a kiwi!)  Rosa, of course, uses hya's hand-drawn floral fabric and matches the other critters in the Rosa pattern from hyasynth and myself.  You can find a key of the gachas at the event at the Received Items page.

The wombats can be found at Where the Wild Things Are until August 10!
