The Nightmare event is back this year, with another haunted house to scare the pants off of you. I made nesting dolls who only slightly look like they want to swallow your soul. Who needs clowns when there are haunted matryoshka? They are modify, so you get to pick how you wish to nest them, the tops pop off to move however you want. When you want to put them back together, the top and bottom are identical sizes/locations/rotations, just copy over one to the other and they will fit right back together perfectly.
And if you are brave enough to get through the haunted house and keep your wits about you enough to complete the hunt, you can get a spike collar at my booth as well. System layers and omega appliers for the slight bit of blood, modify to adjust your fit. They have higher and lower placements (higher is shown), the higher applier requires your mesh head to have a layer over the neck for the blood, the lower uses body layers which are more standard.
The Moon Festival is going on right now, with lots of moon viewing goodies. I love the story about the rabbit in the moon, so I made some rabbit in the moon things for it. There are mooncakes with the moon and a bunny baked into the top, 1 Land Impact on a plate that will give mooncakes to anyone to munch on (with temp rez), and mooncakes to wear and eat or leave in your mouth.
There is also a wagasa set, Japanese umbrellas printed with moon rabbits and a cloudy sky. They have the same options as the Kitsune no Yomeiri (though they do not come with plain solid options those do, just the two colours of moon rabbits), with multiple hold options for left and right hands, texture change sections to customize the entire umbrella, wet and dry options, transparency options, and closed versions also included.
The Panic of Pumpkin event is in full swing! It's a Japanese event, on Japanese time which means things are AHEAD of SL time- it's often a day later to the game than you think it is. The event is from October 1 to October 31 midnight Japan time WHICH MEANS that it opened on September 30th at 9am SLT! The day thing means something because not only can you find goodies to buy, but there is a hunt! that it a daily advent style thing. Find the door for the current day and knock on it (say trick or treat, of course!) to get the special thing for that day. Because it runs on Japan time, you may need to knock on a door for the day after when it it for you! After the day has passed, you can buy the gift for 50L.
Aside from that, the venue is adorable, and there is much inventive spooky fun to be had. I made parfaits for it, because Japanese parfaits are my kryptonite. They are amazing. They are adorable, and tasty, and wonderful, and I don't DO parfaits in any other country, but man, Japan knows how to make them magic. I do stay away from the ones bigger than my head though, as tempting as they may be. Have to save some room for the rest of the amazing food, after all.
And for my gift, there are wagashi, Japanese sweets, in the shape of pumpkins. The plates give little temp attachment pumpkins to eat to anyone, and there are also versions for you to eat and hold in your mouth. (They are mod, so you can also do whatever you like with the pumpkins.)
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!
