Midnight Order: Club Manjushage

(click to enlarge)
STORYTELLING: Down below the streets of Chicago in the 1920s was a dark basement that appeared to hold nothing more than discarded old newspapers and dusty crates. But if you opened the right crate, a hidden passageway would be revealed. Club Manjushage was a dazzling feast for the eyes in expensive black marble, dripping red velvet, and glints of gold decorating the sharp art deco edges everywhere. There was no prohibited alcohol here. SpeakEasies were not the only secret clubs in Chicago, and Alcohol was not the only forbidden drink. 

This image was inspired by the Art Deco style the Neudamm water fountain by Contraption, and illustrations of Erte.

Mainframe: Drug Injection 2077

(click to enlarge)

STORYLINE: The cop working the roughest neighborhood of Insilico was Cursed A.N.G.E.L. He thought he had seen everything working that beat. Maybe he was too much of an old world creature, preferring things like flesh and blood. He had a hard time wrapping his mind around hottest drug. He was getting tired of calling the morgue to pick up another dead teen off the street. They called it The Plug, and it wasn't chemical. No. It was computer code junkies jacked right into their cyber enhanced body ports. Unbelievable.

This post was inspired by the Drug Injector pose and the optical themed goodies at Mainframe.

Midnight Order: The Grand Masquerade

(click to enlarge)

STORYLINE: It all started with the ringing of a tiny bell. Cornelius had been engrossed in a book when a stunning woman stepped inside the bookstore and asked the shopkeeper about a rare out of print book. Normally his mind was focused on invention, he wasn't one to chase after a skirt. However, he began to visit that little bookstore more frequently. He told himself it was research, but in truth he was hoping to see her again. And see her again he did. She was strolling down the aisles, picking up books. He nodded. "...Yes, yes. Excellent choice. A lady of good taste." And then She looked directly at him and smiled. What she said, he had no idea. He forgot his own name. She laughed and took the book he had desperately been pretending to read and turned up right side up. Normally he would have been quite embarrassed, but all he could think was "she smiled at me." So it came as quite a shock the next day he discovered his mystery woman on the cover of the newspaper. She was the youngest daughter of the Queen's Knight family, and would be soon be picking a husband from the attendees of the Grand Masquerade. He had no invitation. He had no hope to win the hand of such an amazing lady. But he felt if he didn't tell her his true feelings, it would kill him. Words failed him in her presence, so he created a beautiful ruby mechanical heart. His plan was to sneak into the ball before it started, and offer it to her.

Necrotize: T'arnn Gorkand of Mars

(click to enlarge)
STORYLINE: Long after humans left the Earth and modified their bodies to adapt to living in the harsh conditions of Mars, a false prophet rose. The colonists had struggled to survive in the desolate wasteland for generations despite the steady support from Earth. The truth was, one small mistake and the colony could die. Few lived past 27. It was from this misery a myth was born that lifted the spirits of the Martians. A story about ancient aliens who lived on Mars when water still flowed. It was during this time T'arnn Gorkand became the first Emperor of Mars. He told them he had received a vision from these Ancient Astronauts. They showed him the location of their ancient capital city buried under a large pyramid, and he promised to lead true believers to this paradise if they swore allegiance to him.

Is this mesh head by Badwolf cool or what? It inspired this Mars fantasy themed post. The head comes with a Hud to switch out the skin textures. You can also edit-mod to hide the exposed brain if you want to wear a hat or hair. The scarf is a creepy attachable Animesh Void Worm. Head over for the last call at Necrotize to pick up goodies and gifts. Stay safe everyone for the holidays!

On him, T'arnn Gorkand of Mars:
Head: BadWolf Dreadful Cerebrum [mesh](Necrotize)(300L)
Scarf: [vaak] Animesh Void Worm [mesh](Necrotize)(199L)

Necrotize: The Dance of Death

(click to enlarge)

STORYLINE: Astronaut Purple was dozing off at his post on the Coms. It was sterile and empty in space. He missed strange things like bugs. He smiled thinking of his lazy summer childhood days back on Earth. When he stepped outside, insects would fly away. Living things were everywhere. His mind drifted to sinister buzz of the bug-zapper on his father’s back porch. And then, it turned into the hum of the spaceship. His eyes snapped open. He was not alone. That’s when he noticed a strange dark figure in the security cameras. Was he hallucinating? He rubbed his eyes and looked again. It was gone. Probably nothing. He sighed. Nothing exciting ever happened here. Suddenly the door hissed open. Standing there was a beautiful, deadly, and strangely seductive alien. He jumped from his chair, knocking it over, his heart racing. She moved towards him in an erotic motion, inviting him to a dance. He felt like moth to her flame. Its a dream, right? She touched his leg, and electric shock jolted up and down his body. He could see his own bones glow inside his legs. The zap boomed in his head, it was deafening. He felt like he was falling. Like a unexpected power outage, everything flickered to darkness. ... Surely this was a dream.

This image originally was inspired by Fantastical Notion's First Emissary avatar. It was unusual and interesting, and it grew into a ghost Astronaut. Then it took a twist into a deadly galactic dance between a Xenomorph and Astronaut. I couldn't find a location that worked for this image, so I switched to creating a background. More items shown on the "Ghostnaut" are the Val'More Machina legs. They are not rigged so I posed them for this image. For the face is the Conviction Mutant eyes, and TF mort veins. Contraption put two excellent items on discount at the event, animesh Powerjammer spine, and Grymmer vest. On a side note, The X-ray effect I created by breaking apart the Cureless Skeleton and adding props to spine, ribcage, and legs, and using the Body Outline by Euthanasia. On the Zenomorph is the awesome shiny and scary NCHRGX outfit by Human Glitch. The freaky demonic wings are by DarkendStare's R'Lyeh. The dark skin by Petrichor has cool details like red spots, I especially loves the spots around the ears, I have never seen that before. The super shiny & bumpy detail on the skin is the material shine by This Is Wrong. Her cyber eyes and glossy lips are by Suicidal Unborn.

Necrotize will be ending soon. All lovers of cyber, horror, and scifi be sure to not miss it. The setting for the event is SUPER cool, created in collboration by Contraption and CerberusXing. So many great items are there to inspire your cyber nights. Your handy guide here: https://secondlifesyndicate.com/events/syndicate-events/necrotize/
