I'm Only Happy When It Rains

The Happy When It Rains event has started at Twomoons Island! A bunch of people (myself included) have booths with rainy items for the event. I ended up with 14 new things for it, because I sculpted this little cloud, and then this umbrella, and then sort of went insane. I know, like this was actually a change from my default state.

The clouds, well. They made me channel my inner Japanese girl. She's very small, and cute, and perpetually in her early 20s and wears big frilly floofy skirts. There are 2 sets of Kawaii Clouds jewelry, with bead drops of rain, and strings of rainbow beads.

The clouds made another appearance on a tanktop and t-shirt- the tanktop is the same teal as the Skunk Electro-cute, and can be made into a dress with that set using it instead of the skunk top.

And another prim corset! MiaSnow, our fine host for this event, is always unabashedly courageous with her use of colour, and it's always amazing. The rain soaked corset's colours, and those of the matching necktie, were inspired by her.

And then, of course, if it's raining, you need an umbrella! And so, the parapluies- sculpted brollies that go with the corset and tie. Each contains two umbrellas- a purple to pink outer with a teal to blue inner, and a teal to blue outer with a purple to pink inner. The most traditional ones, to carry around holding, have three holding poses you can cycle between when the owner clicks upon the umbrella. (My poses were ALL conflicting with each other when I was trying to take pictures, though they were perfectly fine with cooperating until I was to that point [bastard SL], so they really DO have the relevant fists set, even though the one there doesn't look it.)

There are also versions that go out in your house- a straight up display version, 4 prims to sit on your floor, and 2 styles of lamp. The chandelier is the more primmy, with 8 lightbulbs, one from each spoke- the umbrella with lights itself is 11 prims, and there are 2 ceiling mounts, a one prim version, and a two prim (they look very similar- the higher prim option provides more flexibility so you don't have to mount them from a level ceiling). The lamp is 4 prims, with the 1-2 prim ceiling mount, with a single lightbulb nestled behind the canopy, softly glowing. There's one of those upside down (or is it right side up?) in the blue sparrow room in the basement right now. Both electrified brollies light and extinguish when anyone clicks on them. And yes, I know they're redundantly named. But that way you can find them when you search in inventory, maybe?

(the human girl's clothing, tattoos, and hair are all from katat0nik, aside from her pants in the t-shirt picture, which are ~silentsparrow~; the tattoos on the elves are from ~silentsparrow~, as are their pants and her skirt in the holding parapluie and necktie pictures; the girl elf's shirt in the necktie picture is from Pig; all poses by {TERHO}, and my boy model is secure enough in his sexuality that he can even pull off girl poses and look hot; all skins, eyes, makeup and ears by Schadenfreude, as are the hair on both elves, and the oxford shirt on him in the tie picture)

You too can be happy when it rains, on Twomoons Island!

After the event is over, items will be available at the elephant or on the Marketplace.

Crann Bethadh Trees, Barrel Bridge, Ice Floes, and some flowers

I've been working on these trees for a while (after finally biting the bullet and saying "ok, I drew these leaves ages ago with the intent to make trees, just make the damn trees already"), finally I finished them. The Crann Bethadh trees are somewhat akin to oak trees, with their dense foliage and heavy trunks. They are another testament to my obsession with low prim: the trees themselves are only 2 prims (add an optional shadow, your choice of static or animated, and they're 3). They come in a selection of 9 colours, normal tree colours and various not-so-normals, and each tree has a particle falling leaf effect (the owner can turn this on and off with a dialog on click). They also come with 2 types of fallen leaves on sculpted groundcover: lightly scattered, and raked up into a pile. They come set with some light glow (the black and white ones have the trunks glowing, the rest it's the leaves), but they're mod so you can de-glow, or more glow, to your preference. But remember to mod your megaprim versions with care, don't resize them!

This bridge is something I made for an area on Horst (I quite liked that swampy little corner with the cattails, and when I was nesting I started making some things for around there), and I've used around the Starlust now and again, right now it's used for the crossing of the river up onto elephant mountain. Three planks tied to four barrels, a rustic 3 prim bridge.

Another thing you might have seen around the Starlust, the Triple Ice Floes were actually originally made for hyasynth Tiramisu of ~silentsparrow~ to grace one of her snowy builds. They've also made appearances around whenever I've frozen the sims. 1 prim for all three chunks of ice, static and slowly rotating floating in the body of water of your choice.

And lastly, those desaturated flowers I've had by the elephant since Lloyd was born. They're somewhat primmy (especially the elephant ears), which has been why I've been rather hesitant to offer them, but I've gotten a few requests for them anyway, so here they are, finally.

All of these are NOT in the elephant! They're in Baba Yaga's hut, instead.

Electro-cute Corsets!

I'm really quite fond of the prim corsets, as much as they do limit the poses I can use. And so, there are more. Saccharinly sweet Electro-cute corsets! (I'm in the bat right now...of course.) They come in three packs by Electro-cute, and the bigass pack of all of them. Like the rest, fit once, change with a HUD, so if you already have one of the corsets, you just want to hold onto the HUD for the new patterns.

(hair: lamb, undies: Schadenfreude matching Electro-cute undies, skin unreleased)

The silky ribbons tying you up in back match the binding, for all but the candy coloured skull- that one has blue laces instead of pink.

At the elephant!
