Hunter VS Hunter 2

(click to enlarge)
STORYLINE: Being a proper English Gentlemen, Lord Kraven traveled in style. His idea of an outstanding Christmas Vacation involved digging for ancient treasures and hunting big game on the Dark Continent. The thought of sipping the "local cuisine" made his mouth water. Wild game had so much fight, unlike the jaded city dwellers of London. Yes it was exhausting, but he rather enjoyed playing with his food. He even had his eye on a particularly feisty warrior among the herd. He would make an excellent pet. His friends will be so jealous.  ...Ah, the unlife was sweet indeed.

The Hunter Vs Hunter series was inspired by the Jewelry and Accessory Expo's Safari theme. But of course I had to give it a gothic twist. The Expo has ended, but you can still pick up these awesome shoes by G&D. They come with a hud that will let you change 2 of the leather colors, and metals. They are a rare pair of shoes for guys that work the Slink Male feet. Working great with the shoes are the Skinny pants by Gabriel. The Safari Pith hat is by Xen's Hats. Love the black color version! It's perfect for vampires on safari. The beautiful red Harrington coat is a new creation by FATEwear. You can get it in several colors, and I love how the collar looks woolly with materials. The coat is meant to be worn with the scarf. And the coat also comes with a texture of snow dusting the shoulders. Nice! What's inside the bag, I wonder? The Messenger Bag from Remarkable Oblivion is another must have goodie. It comes in 3 color choices, and has an x.y.z script for resizing. The face piercing are by CerberusXing and come in 3 colors, girls and guys can wear. It was part of the ROMP sale last weekend. Also from the ROMP are: the Cheeky Pea Striped Trees chair with 22 single poses, 4 couples, and 12 adult poses; and the Artisan Fantasy Captive - Cage comes with 21 solo poses. The hair under the hat is from Argrace's Christmas gift santa hat and hair. I just made the hat part transparent, and Wa La! I have some handy hat-hair. lol

Hunter VS Hunter

(click to enlarge)
STORYLINE: Every few nights, a person in his village would suddenly cry out for help, and before anyone could reach them, they were gone. There would be signs of struggle and the roof of the hut would shredded. He had enough of the predator terrorizing his village. He would hunt down it, and kill it. The clever flying menace would have been untrackable if not for a drop of blood in the sand every few feet. It would be only a matter of time before he caught up with it.

The Cast Iron Angel

(click to enlarge)
STORYLINE: Snow crunched softly below his sandals. In a nearby cafe, hungry shoppers ordered hot coco and crumpets. They were blissfully unaware the Ghost Christmas Present moved among them strumming on his lyre. His fellow ghosts called him the Cast Iron Angel, for in these industrial times of bellowing trains and clanking factories, it seemed a more suitable moniker.

The Arcade returns this December with many fun items, and the stunningly beautiful Holiday Spirit gacha from Remarkable Oblivion. You can win holdable lanterns, rare Mother earth and Father Frost masks, rare wings, and the holdable lyres. Each lyre plays a song too! Just trigger it in local chat and it will begin to play. So classy, love it.  Remember the spooky cool Ray skin by Tableau Vivant at Xiasumi School Festival? I have good news, now you can get it in more tones, and it's on sale for 50% off at We <3 RolePlay for Christmas too! WOOT! You can pick up Ray with, or without eyeliner, in tones 1, 3, 6, and 10. (Note: You can find the matching hand and feet appliers at the main Tableau Vivant store.)

Good Girl, Bad Boy

(click to enlarge)
STORYLINE: (From Adventure Time, Bad Little Boy) Marshall Lee, vampire: "Good little girl, Always picking a fight with me. You know that I'm bad, But you're spending the night with me. What... do you want... from my world? You're a good little girl."   Fionna, human: "Bad little boy. That's what you're acting like. I really don't buy, That you're that kind of guy. And... if you are... Why do you want to hang out with me?"

This post was inspired by the adorable Adventure Time outfits by FATEplay available at Geeks'N'Nerds. There is a Lynne outfit for the girls, and a Finn for the guys. The girl version comes with skirt, bunny hoodie rigged and unrigged, and bonus hair that works perfectly with the hood. The guys version has bear ears hoodie and shorts. Both of them come with hood up or down, backpack, and a sword. There are six color themes to choose from and all items are materials enabled. Also, the outfits come in child sizes too. I used the Original above for girls because the outfit is adorable, and doesn't everyone love team Marshall Lee and Fionna? She's wearing the Grady Heels by Ingenue from the last round of Collabor88 and hopefully it will be in the main store soon. The Thigh High Knit socks for Slink body are by Luxuria and still on sale for Fifty Linden Friday.  Marshall Lee is wearing a great Fitted Mesh sweater, Lawless Greyskull. It has 2 sizes of fitted mesh, plus the standard sizes. I'm using the Fitted above. The sweater also comes in other colors and textures (fleur-de-lis/black, Listen/green, Tattoo/brown). The hair is a new mesh style by Dura, number 54. The Lenox jeans I got picked up The Men's Department and it comes with 6 jeans shades and 4 belt colors. I love the draping and fit on these. Nice. The shoes are Super Kingdom Low Tops, unrigged that I sized to fit the Slink feet. The vampire ears are by Trap, and vampire skin Rays Mort Vivant Bloody by Tableau Vivant.

This pose is one of many in the brand new badass Vampire Barbarian Throne by Death Row. It comes in light and dark, Adult or PG. It has: 2 single male poses, 3 single female poses, 9 vampire couple poses, 4 couple cuddles poses, 4 couple drink serves, 11 couple adult poses, and 12 femdom poses. The guitar hanging on the back on the throne is by Libby's. You can win it on the lucky board. It hangs on the shoulder, and touching it brings up a menu to switch poses.

The Mines of Mars

(click to enlarge)
STORYLINE: A hybrid escapee from the Mines of Mars, Static Charge only found himself right back in the mines when a mysterious scientist and her daughter gave him a proposition he couldn't refuse. Guide them in the mines to an undisclosed location and keep the expedition a secret from all spying eyes, and in return they will smuggle him to the Earth where he will no longer be the "property" of the Lords of Mars. What choice did he have? Of course he accepted.

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone in the States. Need something fun to do for the holiday weekend?

The Remorse of Victor Frankenstein

(click to enlarge)
STORYLINE: "Often, after the rest of the family had retired for the night, I took the boat, and passed many hours upon the water. Sometimes, with my sails set, I was carried by the wind; and sometimes, after rowing into the middle of the lake, I left the boat to pursue its own course, and gave way to my own miserable reflections. I was often tempted, when all was at peace around me, and I the only unquiet thing that wandered restless in a scene so beautiful and heavenly -- if I except some bat, or the frogs, whose harsh and interrupted croaking was heard only when I approached the shore -- often, I say, I was tempted to plunge into the silent lake, that the waters might close over me and my calamities forever." - Victor Frankenstein, From Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, chapter 9

A Tattered Page [*citation needed] is a brand new event from the Cursed crew. Designers create items from their own imagination inspired by words from the selected novel for that round. (That means no styles or ideas taken from movie, TV shows, plays, comics or other adaptions.) I love this concept. It's true, when reading a novel, an image is created in the mind of the reader. Each person's inner visualization is unique to them. For the first round,  Mary Shelley's gothic novel classic, Frankenstein was picked. Contrary to all the many Hollywood versions of the story, the original is very different. It's been wonderful to see what all the designers came up with. Each item comes with a quote from Frankenstein that inspired the item (that's the *citation needed part of the event). The event runs from November 7-November 30th. This is a store to store hop, just look for the Tattered Page display in each store. Future rounds of Tattered page will have central Library theme location. For more information, previews of all items on sale, and links to each location, go to: A Tattered Page

This post was inspired by Dingy and wonderfully descriptive moment in the book selected by Roawenwood. The Broken Melancholia Dinghy will not be sold like this again after the event ends, it's an exclusive. The boat comes in scripted, and unscripted versions, 2-4 land impact. It has 18 couple animations. It also comes with a paddle and cattails.

STORYLINE: "... I thought of the heroic and suffering Elizabeth, whom I tenderly loved, and whose existence was bound up in mine. I thought also of my father and surviving brother: Should I by my base desertion leave them exposed and unprotected to the malice of the fiend whom I had let loose among them?" - Victor Frankenstein, From Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, chapter 9

Wow, this was such a hard shot to do. I hope you guys like it. Dr Frankenstein is wearing a cool late-Regency / Early Victorian outfit by Avatar Bizarre. It's one piece with coat and pants, and also includes hat, shoes, and cravat. You can choose from many colors, and one of the colors is an exclusive. I love this ring so much! It's the Wedding Night ring by Bliensen + MaiTai for Tattered Page. The black color version is an exclusive to the event. You can get it in gemstones blue, red, green, or purple, and either black skeleton hands or ivory. It's mod so you can adjust it for a good fit. This angsty pose, The Night, is by NanTra. It worked great here for Victor's conflicted feelings. Adding movement for underwater is the Ken Urei hair by Argrace. This wonderful Rays Mort Vivant Shadow pale skin tone by Tableau Vivant is on sale at the Xiasumi School Festival. It includes appliers for hands and feet. I love the details around the eyes and the highlight on the nose. To match the pale skintone, I used the Fingernail Naturals freebie gift from A:S:S. I love the Winter eyes by S0NG, I picked up the green ones recently. Below the surface is a set I built using the Kelp by Aley and MeadowWorks. With all this nice yummy seagrass laying around, I could not resist letting momma manatee and baby from Aqua Shop Gonbe roam around in it. It's manatee heaven down there afterall. lol You can see them hiding in the seagrass on the lower left side.
