Winter Wonder Hunt

Winter Wonder Hunt


The Winter Wonder Hunt is still going for most of this month (ends the day after Christmas, I think!).  It's not really a hunt-hunt, it's a story event with quests to earn things to turn in for prizes.  The prize you can redeem from me is a stuffed Krampusling (because I have Krampus on the brain lately).  You can find instructions on how to do the hunt at the official site.

krampusling

It's a little Nightmare Before Christmas in theme- Karuma Tengu has injured Santa Claus by accident, and now Christmas is ruined!  The yokai don't want the children to be sad, so they are going to save Christmas, even if they have no idea whatsoever what they are doing.  This leads to best new sleigh for Santa and BEST CAKE EVER.  Santa tries to be super diplomatic about it all.  You get to pick whether you want to do quests in JiPang (the spooky side of the sim with the yokai!) or Santaburg first.  You will get a little companion (you must allow your companion to rez and attach to be able to complete quests!) to help you on your quest, as you collect materials to make things for people and run errands for them (there are permanent versions of the quest companions to be found in each half of the sim as well- not for doing the quests, but for keeping with you later!).  You are rewarded with coins that can be redeemed for prizes for the quests- many are repeatable so you can pick an easy one (cat booze!) to grind for more coins.

Miche Snow Boots

Deer Mice for The Arcade

deer mice gacha

Another round of The Arcade is upon us, this month of December!  My workshop was invaded by an army of little deer mice who demanded to be dressed up with things draped on their little antlers.

coming soon to the arcade

There are free sleighs you can get at the venue from the board next to the machine, that you can rope some of your deer mice into pulling!  They don't mind, though they are a bit lazy and mostly stand around posing once you do.  I'm not sure how Santa mouse's presents will get delivered at this rate.

season of cheese

And, if you look under the tree in the middle of The Arcade, there are all sorts of presents to be found, including some cheese, from me (because while Santa mouse will eat cookies if you sent them out, cheese is even better.  And if you set it out for Krampus mouse, he's likely to figure you are a good child to think of him, and pass you over).

All to be found at The Arcade for the month of December!

Catmas Ornaments

Tannenbaum is a Christmas market open until Christmas itself.  There are lots of Christmas goodies to be had, and there's a tree lot full of ornaments, where you can find my Catmas ornaments.

ornaments preview

I have cats in RL, including two cats who like climbing the tree (one loves climbing it to eye height and then spreading out across the branches, just hanging out, rather like that picture!), and another who likes standing on her hind legs and grabbing onto ornaments and pulling on them until they pop apart (they are all wired on with pipe cleaners now so they can't just be taken off the easy way).  So, I've given up on breakable ornaments, everything has to be cat safe.  These ornaments are just another sign of me giving up entirely, in SL I just put cat toys on the tree to begin with!  (The two felt bird ornaments at the bottom of the picture can also be found at the tree lot, next to me at hyasynth's ornament gacha.  Also nice and cat safe!)

catmas ornaments

They each have 6 textures to choose from in a dialog on touch, so if you get duplicates, they don't have to be duplicates!  The ribbons will change to my choice to go with each, or you can change the ribbon separately if you wish another option instead.  The jingle balls can have the bells and the ball cages set to different metals, and anyone can jingle them on touch.

To be found at Tannenbaum!

Flittermice

flittermice

Wayward Halloween is a gacha event with a spooky side and a not so spooky side- I'm on the spooky side, in the graveyard!  I made little bats styled after how I draw them.  There are three types: wings spread and wings curled are commons, each in 12 colour options; and the rare is an animated flying flittermouse, to flap up and down by your side or fly around in circles on the ground, and is texture change with all the options so you get to pick what you want him to look like!

To be found at Wayward Halloween until Halloween itself!

Bats&Avies Thessaly Jacket

Exclusively for The Truth about Bats and Avies is a Thessaly jacket (including optional hood that can be worn up or down) with a silhouetted bat swarm- the event runs until October 31, after which this jacket shall disappear forever!  100% of the sales of this item will go to help actual real life bats,  Bat World Sanctuary. I love bats (you could probably guess- aside from being cute and wonderful and flappy and spooky, a lot of them also eat pesky horrible insects that want to bite me!), and they are doing good work!

Boney Candle Holders and Drippy Candles

spooky candles

Collabor88 this month is a homage to all things Tim Burton.  I made some messy candles to drip on your nice wood floors in a bundle of colours (texture change with HUD- touch the bottom quarter of the candle of your choice to activate it- for the trio of candles with three candles in one object, touch the bottom quarter of whichever individual candle(s) you wish to change).  There are also wall mounted skeleton hand to hold candles to light your ever so innocent looking hallways.

At Collabor88 this October!

Autumn Seasons Story

It's another anniversary round of The Seasons Story!  I made meowls, because everyone is fond of owls (except for Simon Cowel).  They are scripted for you to hold them in your right arm (or perch on it!), or to be worn anywhere else you please with no animation, or to be rezzed (1 Land Impact per owl at the size they start, and they can go a bit larger too before they become more!)  Muerto is a companion owl in a colour scheme to go with the Muerto from ~silentsparrow~'s Spooky Cutie gacha set, and of course Carny, Alle, and Rosa go with various other releases from both of us!

meowl gacha

As it is an anniversary round, there are also special things awaiting for you there!  I also made new Devilish wings, which are half off for the anniversary.  Texture change with 12 options.

And!  There are a bunch of gifts for the anniversary too!  There is a new witchie little vouboo from me:

Bug-a-Boo shoes

the bug-a-boo shoe

For this month's Mix, I made curly toed witchy shoes, because, after all, tis the season.  There are versions to fit System Feet, and versions that are made to fit Slink Mid Feet for the foot addicts.  They are modify and unrigged, so you can also fit them to larger than size 0 feet, and MAY be able to fit them to other brands of feet (but I have not tried this, so I make no guarantees!)

They come in 9 colours (including a ridiculous pink!)

The Nightmare is a haunted house with a hunt, and a shopping event for the month of October.  There are all sorts of spooky things to find there!

Autumn Bounty at The Arcade

schadenfreude autumn bounty gacha

Autumn has come to The Arcade, and I'm celebrating by sharing some of my harvest with some animals of the forest as well.  The Autumn Bounty set consists of some tasty foods of fall and some critters who have come to share it with you.

fat wren says get your own cider, this one is mine

Many of the animals are animated (just a little bit!).  The squirrels enjoy perching on shoulders, and heads, as well as hanging out around sims.  The candles can be carried around and held, and anyone can touch them to light or extinguish them.

The rare toffee pears will give out toffee pears to anyone who touches them.

Festival of Sin: Acedia

festival of sin

The Festival of Sin is back for a second opportunity for some quality sinning.  My chosen sin this time is Sloth.  I'm too lazy to clean, so there are cobwebs.


The Acedia Single Drawer Side Table comes in 3 versions with two main body options (2 shades of wood, black and white, and gold and silver leaf), or the uberpack with all that plus all the extra things I did because I wanted them even though they might be ridiculous.  Ok, they ARE ridiculous and I didn't feel like making vendors for all 14 colours.  All have a HUD that lets you choose between clean and dusted textures for the base options, and all 14 colours for the trim and drawer handle.  (Please read the instructions to use the HUD, you must touch them a particular place to activate the texture change!)  They also all include 4 versions: a clean version with an opening drawer, a clean version with no moving parts, a cobweb covered version with an opening drawer (with a web in it!), and a cobwebbed version with no moving parts.  All are 1 Land Impact each.  You can also touch the cobwebs to hide or show them, to choose just how many spiders are hanging out in your place.


The Acedia Chandlier also has webbed and not webbed versions, the webbed letting you choose how many webs to display.  The HUD lets you change texture between 12 options for the ceiling medallion, the chain it hangs from, and the chandelier itself (the colours of the Side Table, minus the woods, plus an oil rubbed bronze).  There are 13 colours of electric candles you can choose between to match your decor.


There are also separate cobwebs to match, to invite the invisible spiders on to more surfaces in your house.

Found only at the Festival of Sin, in the Sloth motel, until September 5.

A Garden of Daydream Bulbs

daydream lightbulbs

For this very special Daydream birthday Collabor88 round (can you believe Collabor88 is 4 years old already?  I sure can't!  And I've even been in each birthday round, time flies so fast), I made lightbulbs that light up with dreams.  There are three of them: a flower, a tree, and a butterfly.  When dark, the flower is a bud, the tree is bereft of leaves, and the butterfly perches motionless on the glass.  When lit, the flower blossoms, the tree blooms, and the butterfly takes off and flutters in its enclosure.  (Thank you hyasynth for the gif of them in action!)


Each lamp comes in 7 heights, from no pole to floor lamp, and with a lightbulb not in a fixture- each 1 LI at original size.  There are two versions of each- one is scripted to cast light when lit while glowing and animation, and the other only glows and animates but does not light up (in case the cast light does not fit the lighting scheme of your decor).  The lamp fixtures have 4 metal options (silver, gold, copper, and black), and each interior object has 8 texture options for your choice of colours.


Like most of my lamps and furniture, activating texture change requires the owner touching a particular part of the object first to activate the HUD (so you can have more than one rezzed and have them be different options!  Plus it's lower lag for sim health).  They will stop listening once touched by the owner anywhere, which is recommended!  Plus that way YOU can turn them on and off anyway.


At Collabor88 this month!

The Nivlets

Mix is a new event, aiming to bring back the main stores.  Every month, a bunch of designers either put out a new release, an exclusive recolour an older release, or put an older release on sale.  You use the HUD to skip across the grid for that month visiting all the wonders on offer for you.

From me, some buttons!  The Nivlet Barrette, a barrette with a button and a feather (bundle o' texture options of course), and the Nivlet Bracelets, buttons on a string to tie around your wrists.

ORIGAMI RIN-NE

The second part of the ORIGAMI event has now opened, the game and hunt!  I really enjoyed the game, I'm loving these story based HUD games that people have been developing recently.  While you have the HUD and are exploring the world of the supernatural, you can also find the coins for the hunt part of the event.  Each store with a gift (the gifts are at booths in the mall area) has a little basket, once you have found their coin and registered it in the HUD you can touch the basket at their booth to receive your gift.  I made a little octopus in a bag to carry, the prize from a goldfish scooping game that was, perhaps, a little peculiar.  The bag can be looped around a finger of your left or right hand to be carried around with you, as he gently undulates up and down.

bagged octopus for origami

Grab a HUD at the starting point (you may want to descript a bunch before going, there is a script limit!) and play the game!

Tips for playing the game: Walk everywhere, do not cam!  (Your HUD will light up red in the center when you are walking close to a coin, for one, but you will also get more of the full effect if you walk around!)  Touch everything.  Talk to everyone.  Follow what they tell you when applicable.  (And talk to people again!  Sometimes they have more to tell you!)  To save your progress in the HUD, remove it and reattach it periodically (say, after you finish each quest), so you will not lose ALL your progress if you have a hard crash (sadly, it's just the way SL works, things don't get saved properly until you take them off, and if you crash too hard it can't send the information to save).  If you get stuck, people are helping in the O R I G A M I Group, and there are a lot of English speakers playing so you may find help on the sim from fellow players.  And above all, have fun!

ORIGAMI RIN-NE is open until August 25.

Fishcakes Heels

a mermaid's first day on land

Seasons Story ALSO has a sea theme, timely to go with Collabor88's current mermaid round.  I'm towards the Northeastern corner of the sim, on the outer walk, and you will find chunky fish heeled shoes there. There are 10 different base shoe patterns to choose from, and each shoe comes with 15 different painted fish heel colours, 10 trim colours, 12 colours of starfish button, and the option of tan or black soles.  If you have more than one or the pack, you can also mix toes and sides for yet more options!

shoes for Seasons Story

They come with 3 versions: one for System Feet, one for Slink Mid Feet, and an extra tall one (with more fin!) for Slink High Feet.  They are unrigged and modify, so you may find that they fit other feet as well, but there is no guarantee.

At Seasons Story this month!

Koi-nietzko tights

fish at the festival

Mermaids abound at Collabor88 this month, and I continue to name things words that no one can ever spell.  This time it's sort of an obscure reference of a memorial to hya's poor betta fish who passed away, crossed with "koi" since, well, fishy (and, one hopes, at least THAT part will be easier to search for!)

tights for Collabor88

Semi sheer tights with sheer-er scale cutouts, in 12 colours: 6 packs of 2, or a pack of them all.  They come with Slink Physique appliers (which will also work on the feet- make sure you have the current version!) and Omega appliers, as well as traditional clothing layers.

At this month's Mermaid paradise of Collabor88!

ORIGAMI Summer Festival

ORIGAMI is having a summer festival, a night event with stalls of all sorts.  I have come to love this pair of sims (the second is not open until the game opens on the 10th), so I am very happy I was able to participate in their event this time!

origami festival

I made little hatchling Tengu for it- big nosed Tengu with wings, bird faced Karasu Tengu, and little birdlet Karasu.  The rare Karasu have little crowns and their eggs are gold and silver- the crowns and eggs are texture change with choices of gold or silver on touch. They all inquisitively watch the world from the safety of their eggs, but are not quite ready to finish breaking out and join it.

tengu key

 You can hold the eggs in left or right hand, to carry your little hatchling around with you.

(kimono from NAMINOKE for ORIGAMI, hat and beak by C L A Vv., hair by Dura, ears by Schadenfreude, background by ~silentsparrow~)

There is also another event that starts July 10 on the sim- which is how you can get the items at the booths with the baskets full of gold coins.  For now, they are just there to tease you, as you can't get them until the 10th!
