Shadow of the Reaper, 3

(click to enlarge)
STORYLINE: Dr Oliver Conray shuffled into the dreary bedroom provided by his Grim taskmaster. In disgust, he tossed his scythe against the bed and sunk onto its faded surface. Dust wafted up and danced in pale light before his strange blacked-out eyes. Standing in the light by the window was the ghostly form of a refined lady. Her delicate voice broke the tense silence, “What happened my love?” He sighed. He didn't want waste a single precious moment he had with his beloved over unpleasant matters. After all, he had paid a horrendous price for the privilege. But still, his heart ached for the life he left behind. "I killed my last living friend today."

For you goth boys, I have some fun things to share. First, I experimented with mixed mesh bodies once more. The upper body is The Mesh Project Male and wearing Gabriel Body Belt shirt. The lower is... *drumrolls* ...Maitreya. Why? For the simple reason that I was able to rock this badass outfit by Moon Elixir thanks to this little trick. Its on sale at the Fantasy Gach Carnival. Paired with the shirt, these two outfits actually worked together really well. My only complaint (besides heavy avatar render weight) is the foot size. Sadly the foot can not be scaled up.  The wonderful black oil tears are from this year's Halloween offering by Tableau Vivant. Its one of the Mort Vivant faces for new skin Marcus. To go with the oily tears, I used the Cubic Cherry Loss eye and tears and tinted it black.  For the hands, is the Cursed Hand applier by Lovely Dissarray. In the background is the fun Hunter Scythe by Swagga. Oh and, one more thing... Did I also mention the *must have* bed for any self-respecting vampire in Secondlife? The Death Row Vampire Gothic Bed set. Worth every single L.

Shadow of the Reaper, 2

(click to enlarge)
STORYLINE: Brilliant white light penetrated the dreary halls of the underworld. It felt warm to the Ghost Lady. She closed her eyes and sighed. It was so peaceful standing in its radiance. Souls of the dead shuffled past her towards the light, drawn by instinct like moths to a flame. She suddenly opened her eyes and turned to an elderly woman. "What do you think the light is?" The woman smiled at her, "Why its the light of heaven, my dear." "No, no," the nearby teenager cut her off, "It's a birth canal. Through the tunnel into the light we live again." A man scoffed and waved them off, "I have to say, as a scientist, its a star. Everyone who ever lived, and anything you ever saw, was born in the heart of a star. So maybe, just maybe, we return to it. Matter back into energy," he shrugged. She stood soundlessly, watching them disappear one by one into the light. Everyday she stood here at the portal waiting for her beloved Oliver to return. And everyday she wondered what lay beyond light. It was a mystery she would never solve. She was trapped between the worlds of the living and the dead. Was it really a blessing to be loved by a Reaper?

The last round of the much beloved Fantasy Gacha Carnival is going on now. This has been one of my all time favorite events in SL.

Shadow of the Reaper

(click to enlarge)
STORYLINE: Metal scraped against the cold stone tiles. The sound echoed in the atrium of the Blessed Virgin's Home for the Mentally Insane. The crazed chatter of the denizens, each locked carefully in their padded rooms, suddenly fell silent. It was so quiet, the soft pad of bare feet sauntering down the hall was audible. One daring old man peeked through a small crack in the doorframe. "Dr. Oliver Conray? he gasped. The scantly clad figure outside froze. "Oh, thank god it is you," the old man wiped the sweat from his brow. "I was worried something bad had happened to you. Say, uh...," he leaned in close to the door and whispered, "How about you help your old card playing buddy out? Let me outta here?" He smiled hopefully. The mute figure of Dr. Oliver Conray slowly turned towards the old man. His face was pale as death, eyes a souless inky black. The old man recoiled in horror. Dr. Oliver Conray raised his scythe high in the air, and with a mighty swish, the old man dropped dead to the ground.

Have you stocked up with Halloween ROMP goodies? Today is the last day. Shown above are two of my favorites from this round, the Naberius collar by the talented & twisted Contraption/CerebusXing team, and this badass harness and skirt by Salt & Pepper. It comes in fits for several female mesh bodies but no males. I used Slink female mesh body on the male base shape to model this outfit, and wore the male Mort Vivant skin for slink by TableauVivant. Works great in the back, but sadly Slink female does not have a flat chest option for the front. (The male and female Slink bodies are being updated right now. I put in a request for a flat chest option.) (Another option for genderbendering your way into clothing not originally made for men is to use the Maitreya mesh body with the Boi chest mod you can find in the marketplace.) Also shown is this amazing Asylum build by Madpeas. It is HUGE. It needs a full or half sim to rez.  The Scythe with inlay is by Swagga from a past Totally Top Shelf. The Edward hair by Tableau Vivant is on sale at The Men's Department. It includes a fit for default head and TMP head.

Happy Halloween weekend gang!

Waking Quetzalcoatl

(click to enlarge)
STORYLINE: Drip, drip, drip. The passage of time was like the steady drip of water into his tomb. The Temple of the Moon had long since been forgotten. Thick jungle vines covered it's secret entrance. Unknown to him, the legend of the Feathered Serpent had become something he would barely recognize. He remembered the frantic prayers of the lake people. They called him Quetzalcoatl and begged him to strike down the false god, Cortez. But still he slept. Meddling in the affairs of humans is how he came to be in this cursed sleep. ...However, today was different. Cautious footsteps of a trespasser echoed in his maze. Trap after trap was sprung. He chuckled to himself. He had created many delicious ways for fools to die. There was a loud bang followed by a sharp metal swish. The scent of blood wafted in the damp air. He licked his parched lips. Had it been 4000 years since he last drank blood? He felt sad his entertainment was over. Wait. His eyes snapped opened. The steps were continuing. This could be no human. Who dared to invade his lair?!

Need a good scare for Halloween? Try the many ways to die in Madpea's wildly beloved game, Lost Treasure of the Inca Warrior. The game is ending soon! Shown above are a few prizes from the game, and also decor items you buy to pimp-out your very own Doom Tomb of Woe.

The Judgement of Kitsune Sensei

(click to enlarge)
STORYLINE: "Your training is almost complete but you lack, ...strength."  It was these words, spoken by their Sensei, that set the Kitsune Twins on a mission to find the strongest man in the village. No Ninja squad could be complete with only two members. So they guessed their Sensei meant they needed to recruit someone strong to the group. Now as they returned, they could barely hold their excitement. "Master," they bowed deeply before the old nine tail fox. "We have found strength. Behold...." From the shadows stepped a tiny oni. The twins ears twitched nervously. "This is the Kuro Oni, little brother of the strongest in the village, the Ketsueki Oni. It's Kuro's dream to train under you and become a true ninja." Sensei stood. In his hand grew a bright ball of spirit flames. Suddenly he hurdled the flaming ball towards the little oni. Kuro's many hours of training kicked in and dodged the sudden attack. A smile grew on the old fox's face, "I accept you, Kuro. Just I as accepted your big brother, Ketsueki to my squad when we were both lads. Back then, he was no bigger then you are now. Welcome to the family."

The Wicked Wizard of the West

(click to enlarge)
STORYLINE: Wesley was a drifter. He ran away from the orphanage when he was 17, and decided one day, "Hey, I want to go to college, yeah." It didn't matter he was not enrolled, he just sat down behind the prettiest girl in class and no one bothered to tell him to leave. Except Dorothy, of course. He poked her shoulder, pulled her hair, even shot spitballs at her but she always ignored him. When he found out her birthday was the next day, he got the idea to bring her flowers. Hey, girls love flowers, right? Well after picking a handful poppies, he fell asleep in the poppyfield and had the strangest dream. A tornado spoke to him. It called him The Great Antagonist of The Usurper. It offered him all its power, kingdom, and servants. "Sounds great, what's the catch?" he giggled in a poppy colored haze. "Water must never touch you." He laughed and accepted. The next morning he woke up strangely dressed with a powerful headache and a flying monkey asking, "Master. What is your heart's desire?" He couldn't help it. The very first thought that popped into his head was the birthday girl. Suddenly, he heard a scream above him. He looked up. It was Dorothy! She was falling from the sky! He dove and caught her just in time. Then Toto jumped out of her basket and bit him. "Hey! I saved you, stupid Mutt!" He glared at Toto and suddenly a muzzle materialized on little terrier. Both Wesley and Dorothy looked at each other and blinked.

My idea for this post was actually inspired a game and the witch theme items at the current round of the Fantasy Gacha Carnival. I had an idea to gender flip the Wicked Witch of the West, and then a few days later discovered Enchantment was doing the Wizard of Oz! So naturally I took it as a sign to go for it! So here is Wesley, the new mischief maker of Oz.

Somewhere Over the Rainbow...

(click to enlarge)
STORYLINE: Dorothy was forever changed by her childhood visit to Oz. It was considered a miracle she escaped the tornado with only a bump to the head and a scar to the face. She had long ago accepted her memories of Oz were dreams triggered by head trauma. Never-the-less, she was determined to bring a little magic of Oz to Kansas. She studied agriculture to learn how to revitalize parched land. To brighten the otherwise dusty landscape, she planted colorful flowers that reminded her of Munchkinland. "Paradise is not a dream," Auntie Em often said, "It's the product of hard work and determination." All seemed to be going well for Dorothy, until the eve of her 18th birthday. Shattering her sense of reality, a yellow brick road slowly formed before her house leading up into the sky.

The Ketsueki Oni

(click to enlarge)
STORYLINE: Suddenly the crowd of villagers gathered around the Hammer Game parted. The towering Ketsueki Oni stepped forward. In a deep intimidating voice he called out to the Kitsune Twins. "You two may have fooled all these feeble minded humans, but your tricks do not work on me." The Twins smiled, Surely the Ketsueki Oni would prove to be the strongest of all! Their Sensei would be so impressed by their plan. The Oni glared at them. "What is the fabulous prize you promise? There is nothing you trickers can offer that I would have. However, I will do your contest on one condition, the prize goes to the owner of this club," he pointed the tiny toy kanabo club at them. The Kitsune twins blinked. A child's toy? Surely this strong Oni wouldn't use something so ridiculous looking. But they shrugged it off. Their mission was only to find the strongest man of the village, it didn't matter to them who got the prize, or what tool was used. They agreed. Then with a mighty swing of the toy club, the Ketsueki Oni not only shot up the heavy fireball and sparked all the fireworks, he broke the game itself and the toy club.

Dream of the Little Kuro Oni

(click to enlarge)
STORYLINE: A kite sailing high above the summer festival hid a tiny passenger. The Kuro Oni was small, but ambitious. He practiced everyday throwing shuriken and training. As he spied on the villagers below, he saw two clever kistunes trying to pass themselves off as humans. They were holding a contest to find the strongest man of the village. They were promising the winner a fabulous prize. He wondered what mischief they were up to, but with them having strong magic, he couldn't help but daydream the kitsunes might make his dream come true. He wanted more than anything in the world to become a celebrated Ninja like his big brother.

Beware of the Kitsunes

(click to enlarge)
STORYLINE: With a wave a leaf, the little fox changed to his human form, Shirokami. "You're wasting time looking for the chosen one." His twin Kurokami suddenly appeared, making him jump. He hated when she did that. "Why search, when we can bring the strongest man in the village to us?" She grinned and showed him the Hammer Game she created. "Anyone who hits the target hard enough to make the fireball shoot up and spark the fireworks on top gets a prize."  "Oooo," he cooed. It tickled his ears, this plan. "Yes, yes! Surely the strong one will be reveled. Let us make a lot of noise to attract attention!" He banged the drum, she rattled her rattles, and they both called in unison, "Come prove your strength, win a fabulous prize!"
