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.
