Creature Comfort Mugs


For my Collabor88's Snow Day, I decided to stay inside where it's warm and cozy and curl up with a nice drink in an oversized mug.  There are 5 different animal mugs: owl, rabbit, pig, fox, and hedgehog.  Each is texture change with 4 different ceramic options (all have pure white unpainted ceramic, and 3 painted options).  They all also come with a choice of tasty hot beverage: hot chocolate with a cinnamon stick and whipped cream, teas with a custom teabag for each, black coffee, and latte art of each animal.  They can be held in the left or right hand to drink from, and have an animation for each depending on where you hold it.

Piggies Return to The Arcade

when pigs fly

The Piggie Wiggies have returned to The Arcade, and this time, some pigs fly!

piggie wiggies series 2

Seven of the piggies fly this time- Butterpig, Astro, Rocket, Wolpigtinger, Vampig, Pigaus and Pink Pigasus will fly with you when attached, or fly around where you rez them, instead of walking on the ground.  Pigmalion, Deviled, Tiger, Pigasarus, Windup, Juliana, and the Piggie Wiggie Bank can wander around on the ground or walk with you when attached, the Bank can also be used as a tip jar (when not walking!  Because having to chase a pig to pay him would be a little silly!)  The rares this time are a pig baby to carry around while it wiggles in your arms, and a little tiny pocket piggie who rides around in your pocket, which is tintable (and has a couple of base textures to choose from).  Astro and Rocket are 2 LI when rezzed, the rest of the piggies are 1 LI each.

Also at The Arcade, you can find a bunch of gifts under the tree!  My present to you is a plate of ginger pigs.  Rez them out on a table in your home, and anyone can touch the plate to get a ginger pig to munch on!  The plate of ginger pigs is exclusive to The Arcade, and will never be seen again after this round.

Arcade's season of giving

All to be found at The Arcade this month of December!

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:

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.
