Vestday! And to accompany the vests, a jewelry set of lightable lightbulbs, necklace, earrings, bracelets, and anklets (bracelets and anklets aren't so recommended in the real world, but you don't have to worry about mesh shattering and embedding glass in your wrists and ankles). The metal settings are texture change with included HUD with a selection of 11 silvery-goldy-coppery sorts of options.
And a pair of vests, of course! A couple of plaids this time. Lolas Tango appliers included as usual.
The Casinelle shoes from the birthday round of Collabor88 have returned, for good this time. They are inspired by the Art Deco movement of the 1920s- with gold or silver accent stitching, and decorative heels with 5 base options and 15 inset stone options. The shoes individually come in solid colours, but with the pack, or more than one shoe, you can also use the HUD(s) to mix the uppers.
From me, you can find 13 different crowns, texture change with all sorts of options (all the metal bits come at least in silver, gold, copper, and a shiny black iron- and various other bits come with assorted options. Each comes with a different set of options, so you'll find out what your choices are when you click it!)
For the month of December, these crowns can only be found at the Arcade!
The 8th is once again upon us, as is another round of Collabor88. This month the theme is Industrial Chic, and I went with furniture- an antique apothecary cabinet rescued from a doctor's office. The cabinets come in 2 versions, distressed by age old chipped enamel, and a repainted and restored option. The front door swings open and shut on touch, and you can choose to remove any or all of the glass shelves to adjust the interior for what you wish to keep in there. They are materials enabled, with a bit of dynamic shine to the enamel and yet more to the glass.
The Apothecary Cabinets are only to be found at Collabor88 the month of November!
Another Fifty Linden Friday, another Vestday. And this time another trio of seasonally appropriate vouboos. Skulls AND sugar, is there really any better holiday? They are rezzed out on the coffee table so you can see them in person.

And some skully vests for the season too (sorry snakes and eagle/ravens, your stripes are next month!) The Crypt one matches the Crypt Fanceh Pants, of course- the other matches the colourful corset in the Electro-cute skull pack.

I'm way early this time! That's because Thursday night, the night I would be putting things out normally, is HALLOWEEN. And I may be out on the town at some party or haunted house instead, all Bride of Frankesteined up (tonight I have to stop procrastinating and finish bleaching my streaks and make sure I _can_ actually get my hair up in that beehive).
I have teeth on the brain this year, Curio Obscura is to blame. First it was the Abomination Boots for The Arcade, and now the Mouthfaces for Horrorfest- you can see Hungry there on the ground though I've been creeping everyone out in my vicinity with it as my face lately (and I may never take off the crystal ball typing replacement, sorry everyone for all the random lights and sparklies every time I speak). My teeth are a bit less monstrous (I still wonder how they chew with their pointy teeth, and never mind how they close those jaws), hand drawn on bright coloured platform heels.
Horrorfest is open, full of all sorts of spooky and bloody things. You can only find this corset there- the Bloody Dompteuse corset, a rigged mesh underbust corset in Standard Sizes for men and women (yes boys, finally you can wear the underbust corsets too). 100% of the sales of this item go towards Horrorfest's charity of choice, the Epilepsy Therapy Project.
Some spooky little things for October, Into the Woods dresses that have gotten a bit lost in there and found by spiders, and some skully fanceh pants.
The Lost in the Woods dresses are the same dress base that I made for the Into the Woods dresses (which still aren't back yet, sorry!), but instead of the foresty lace, feature silvery spiderwebs (in a materials viewer they are extra shimmery, the white, especially, is less so in a no materials viewer- both are rezzed out in the elephant on dress forms though so you can see what they really look like for you). Rigged mesh, Standard Sizes for the ladies (sorry boys! Part of the holdup on the Into the Woods dresses is the boyifying).
Also a pair of Fanceh Pants with a dark grey and black skull print- Standard Sizes for men and women. The rest of the Fanceh Pants will be around...eventually, this is all you can find for the moment.
I keep returning to my Jack o'Lanterns. One of these days, I'll carve new ones, but I kind of like the faces of that 6, so when something new comes along, they eventually get updated. This time it's a big update- mesh! They've been totally rebuilt to be more streamlined, 1 prims and 1 Land Impact each at a reasonable pumpkin size (I made some a bit large around the Starlust, and they're still all only 1LI each), and they also come with 6 uncarved pumpkins now, and there are more colours.
Like, lots more colours, because I'm crazy. There are, of course, a selection of oranges to mix, white Luminas and blue-grey Jarrahdales, a couple of speckled more gourd types, a variety of solid colours not seen in nature, and greyscale desaturated for those who shun colour. Most of them come with 2 options, all 12 pumpkins included with both, 3 packs (2 of orange shades and the desaturated) come with 3 texture options with all 12 pumpkins in each. There's also a scripted uberpack of all 23 textures, that lets you change the inside to either traditional orange or tintable white (which the desaturated pack has) that will change light colour to what to tint the inside to when lit. Materials enabled with a soft sheen to the skin, and they use projector lights, so they cast their faces on anyone or anything in front of them.
And yes, you do spy with your little eye a treat bucket in there. This year's treat bucket is finally out (I'm always kind of late!)- swing by the elephant and touch the treat bucket on the coffee table to get one of your own. Then click click click your bucket and encourage others to do the same!

The 8th has come again, and that means a new Collabor88! This October round has the seasonally appropriate theme of "Black Magic", so I made my witches a short fluffy little number, and tights to fend off the chill with bats on them.
The Boozle dress (named after Scary Godmother's cat Boozle, and I'm excited the Scary Godmother doll is getting made in Real Life!) is partial mesh- only the skirt is mesh, so it will fit a much wider range of sizes without stuffing your bra or having to change your shape radically to fit. The skirt comes fitted to the 5 Standard Sizes for women, and the 5 Standard Sizes for men, and the top comes with and without boob shading, so it's also got a more appropriate option for the less endowed among us. Lolas Tango appliers are included for those of you who have a bit of extra oomph in the chest region. There are 5 colours of Boozle, the four solids have a brocade pattern, and the bleached splattered black one is a plain cotton material.
The Bat Garter Tights have a thicker material at the top and bottom, separated by hand drawn lace bats. They come with Slink foot appliers, for those of you who like the mesh feets.
Mischief Managed is having a Wizarding Faire- it opened today at noon, and goes until the 20th. There are many wizardly goodies to be had from all sorts of people- including a couple of my sim mates! ~silentsparrow~ has wonderful newts, and lassitude&ennui has fabulous witchy shoes and a selection of necklaces- I'm wearing the snake eyed one there.
From me, you can find three new wands (there will be one last new wand released after the Faire, I like the number 3 better than 4 when it comes to magical things, and also actually more pertinently, I have too much work to do and setting up wands takes quite a chunk of time so I ran out!). Like the previous three wands, they are texture change with 13 texture options, and two of the three have 2 texture sections so the accents can be a contrasting colour if you choose. They also come with a few spells! There is a new spell added to the previous list, you can now conjure newts! Newts are courtesy of ~silentsparrow~. The old wands have been updated with mesh versions (the ads for them are currently lying about being sculpt, I need to squeeze in time to fix that, but haven't gotten to it yet!), and if you have an old wand you should have gotten a message and an updating wand sent to you last night. Wear an updating wand (the one that came with your wand also works!), and you will be sent a new copy of your wand(s), updated for mesh and materials, with the new newt spell written in your spellbook.
The wands themselves are 1 LI each, if you choose to display them, and with the box are 2-3 LI (3 LI for the unlinked version that you can move around according to your wish, 2LI for the linked version that opens and closes on touch). The post about the previous wands can give you a little more information about the scripted features they all come with.
There is also a new book! Like the previous collab book with ~silentsparrow~, it has scripted page flipping and unscripted versions, can be held in the left or right hand for reading, and features original artwork (this time by me!). This one also has some materials on the gilded areas (though not on the flipping pages- materials are not scriptable, so I couldn't switch them out with the proper bits!)
There are also framed prints of each page available in a set, also materials enabled. 1LI each picture, or 1LI each pair linked, 3LI for the set of 5 linked together.
And! Last but certainly not least! A jewelry set with ~silentsparrow~, with her original animal art, and my original mesh (do I have to say this? I guess I should. I don't use templates, I make all my own mesh- it means I can do what I really want to do, am not limited to using someone else's building blocks, and I have full control over how textures and everything work. All those things above? Also all my own original mesh and you won't find them anywhere else- with the exception of the frames, which you might find elsewhere eventually because I do sell full perm mesh frames on the Marketplace, but not this style frame yet- and I'll probably only ever sell basic full perm stuff like that. Same goes with anything I make unless I make a point of saying a friend did stuff with me for it- and that goes for texturing too, but I do collabs with textures with friends more often! Like these!). The jewelry set consists of earrings, a necklace, and a ring, and there's a set with each house animal set in a shield crest. The metals are texture change with 11 options (golds and silvers and coppers and pewters and irons of varying shades).
It's Vestday again! This time the vests are accompanied by a jewelry set. Wood crests with pictures of stag heads burned in, on a texture change chain (silvers and irons and golds and coppers and such).
And the vests this time are in celebration of the upcoming Wizarding Faire:

For this autumn round of Collabor88, I made some knickerbockers in 5 seasonal tweed and brocades. What can I say, I like the weird short pants. I wear them with boots, usually. The Fanceh Pants come in the 5 Standard Sizes each for men and women, and are material enabled, but not with anything in your face about it.
Fifty Linden Friday has come again, and this time I have a pair of unrigged mesh wings. They are texture change with 5 texture options- a pastel rainbow, white, grey, black, and white with black tips. They are modify so you can adjust and resize and mess with them to your heart's desire.
And of course, it wouldn't be a Vestday without vests! A vest two pack of tweed and red plaid this time. It's the same tweed pattern as you can find on the Chibi cat and the dress form, and the plaid can be seen on another of the dress forms.
The wings are also tintable to be any colour you want.
The Arcade is upon us again for the month of September. I made stuffed cats for it this time, to carry around or cover your bed with.
The cats come with a hold pose if you keep them at the default attachment point (left forearm), or do not pose you if you choose another, so you don't have wonky random arm if you want to wear them on your shoulders or head or whatever. Two of the cats are a mini collab with hyasynth Tiramisu of ~silentsparrow~- Kasey is named after her cat, and uses her brocade pattern, and Rosa matches one of her Pwnies and uses her hand drawn rose pattern, also in The Arcade.
Some of them come with accessories that you can unlink and trade with other cats, if you so desire!
(They come with: top row: Pumpkin, Lafeet, Boots, Neckbone (First of His Name), Sweetie
This Friday I made some socks. I've stealthily been working on Slink sock appliers lately, you can find appliers to just about everything in the elephant now. These polka dot socks are new, so the appliers are included, and the black set is on sale this Friday for FLF.
There is also a set with the reverse, black polka dots on bright socks. Those are not on sale for FLF though, the rules say a max of two things a round, and there had to be vests! It's a rule.
The vests this time match the Lune Amargosa boots, swirling stitched clouds and contrast inset stars and moons. Lolas Tango appliers are included, for the busty gals.
(Thank you Perse and Emee for being my lovely and patient models!)
Schadenfreude is a brand is Second Life, which has a big black elephant on Nouveau and a little cottage in the Munchkin village in Oz.
There are also a few things that were available in world for a limited time for events, or that have been retired from the elephant, that are now ONLY available on the Marketplace. (Including all the hair!)
With the death of onrez, I have no comprehensive web based gifting systems. Selections of items are on the Second Life Marketplace.
I am also very happy to gift items for you if you contact Allegory Malaprop directly! And you can also get old fashioned gift cards, if you contact me directly (sadly, many gift card systems are prone to security holes that can open up with no notice- if I do it by hand I can keep track a bit better...in theory).
I don't have a blogger list, for a number of reasons. I love seeing things blogged! I just don't do blogger lists, or review copies beyond some events. I totally do respect that blogging is expensive, even with promotional copies, and I'm sorry, but this is what works for me.
p.s. I do love to chat (though I'm not actually good at it- you'll probably have to carry the conversation!), so do feel free to talk to me anyway!
