Digital Alchemy Pendants

digital alchemy necklaces

Collabor88 this month is Modern Alchemist.  Alchemy is something dear to my heart, it's this intersection of science and magic, with secret codes and symbols.  It's about physical and spiritual transformation, the search for perfection and eternal life.  In other words, it's a bunch of really neat things rolled into one.

I revisited some of the very very first things I made in SL- crouched in backyards behind people's houses who had rez on, because I didn't know what sandboxes were- necklaces with alchemical symbols.  Now they are meshed up (less building in places with rez on required!) with less seams and nicer shapes, and much nicer chains.  There are three lengths, with three variations of the two longer, so you can stack multiple necklaces in various combinations.  they also come with HUDs with ten metal options- 3 silvery, 3 golden, 2 coppery, 1 black, 1 darkened bronze- chains and pendants can be changed independently or together.

There are 16 symbols in the original Collabor88 release, more symbols to follow at some point!

The Seven Metals with the symbols of the heavenly bodies: Sun (gold), Moon (silver), Mercury, Venus (copper), Mars (iron), Jupiter (tin), and Saturn (lead)

The two other of the Three Principles (with Mercury): Salt, and Sulphur

The Four Elements: Air, Fire, Earth, and Water.

The Philospher's Stone, the goal of the Work.

Phosphorus, trapper of light, provider of spiritual illumination.

Antimony, representing the wolf and beastial nature, and also a really great symbol all around (I prefer this more complicated one over the upside down Venus symbol!)

To be found at Collabor88 this month!

Zirnitra boots

The Zirnitra boots are my offering for Seasons Story, the autumn session of which is running this month.  My favourite thing about them is the scaled clawfoot heel, inspired by the feet of bathtubs, with your choice of solid and glass balls to perch upon.  There's a fair bit of texture change action- the singles come with a HUD with one colour of leather upper and matching heel and sole, but you can add on extra pairs to mix them; but even just one also lets you change between 3 button metals, 3 metal heels, 3 wood heels, and 8 glass balls.

(hya made adorable little birds you can also find there.  We're both in the southeast corner.  The entire sim is full of lots of goodies to discover!)

At Seasons Story until the end of the month!

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:

(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!)
