Wizarding Faire 2020: Ambush at the Gamekeepers Lair

(click to enlarge)
STORYLINE: Hagrid was awoken by a sudden freak chill in the summer night air. He was grabbing his thickest blanket when he heard a loud bang in the other room followed by the startled squawks of the baby hippogriffs. "Off! Off! Get off me!" The home invader was none other than sixth year student Fennimore who was busy waving his wand wildly. "Hagrid! HAGRID! Help me!" Fennimore was firing off ill-thought spells in an attempt to loosen the grip of the snake coiled tight around him. "Easy now. Don' yeh worry, Fenny. Once ye stop all that yippin', she'll relax. She's more scared then yew, and twice as cold."

The Wizarding Faire is back! Grab your brooms, don your house colors and race down to Mischief Managed to see all the wonderful creations. Hooray! This post was inspired by Second Spaces' Game Keeper Clutter, and these two wonderful creatures, the pygmy hippogriff by banana peel, and wearable animesh ohcami by Clover.

I just love this event and Mischief Managed. Its one of the best roleplay sims in SL. The details with so many rooms, areas, places, and mysteries and secret passages... its just a dream. You could spend days just exploring it. The role players are all great people with a passion for the story. So many good times are had, and players progress through the school years, and some become teachers themselves. They recently expanded and added a 2nd sim. You can read more about the sim and roleplay here:

Aengima: Dreadful Depths: The Crab Guardian

(click to enlarge)
STORYLINE: Down below the murky depths, where only glints of sunlight reach, lay a secret. It had been hidden from human eyes for ten millennia. The sunken capital of the Merfolk, Atlantis. But times were changing. Humans now had contraptions for exploring underwater. And one particular human, Captain Nemo of the Nautilus, was a real headache for Nectes, the Crab guardian of the city. No matter what diversion, or camouflage he used, the Nautilus was on the hunt for treasure like a shark smelling blood in the water. "What's a crab to do?" he sighed. Then an idea hit him, -- a boobytrap! He happened to have a rather nasty little baby kraken. It was perfect. The humans would never bother them again!

Aengima's current round is the Dreadful Depths, underwater steampunk. It brings to my mind tales like 2000 Leagues Under the Sea. As a kid, it was one of my favorite rides at Disney World. So the inspiration for this image is an old Disney ride, and cool things from Aengima like the Cinphul's crustacean-like armor. The armor comes in 4 different texture varieties, male and female, with legs unrigged, and rigged for popular mesh bodies. The treasure chest with a nasty surprise is by Guhit.  And the merfolk tattoo is by Lilthum.

Mainframe: A Bug in the System

(click to enlarge)
STORYLINE:  BUZZ ....  BUZZ ....  I'm detecting a strange anomaly in the Matrix.  Error 404.  Program shutting down.  Begin system maintenance.  ....  Diagnostics report: a Bug in the system. WASP ID1014.

I love me some Cyber. If you are like me, you are going to get your Cyber Fix at the current round of Mainframe. Its stuffed full of badass stuff. This image was inspired by the creepy WASP wings and Antennae by Haro. The wings come in either Bento or Animesh. They are animated and have a nasty Wasp buzz noise that makes me jump every time I hear it. The matching Anennae are a gift, and both WASP items come with a hud to change textures. Also at Mainframe is the KMH CP004 hair that works nicely for men and women. The Cyber sword is from the gacha by Jeys. The amazing background is motherboard wall by Strange Merchant. I'm wearing the Graves bodysuit, its made for girls, but really if you cover the upper torso, it will work just fine. I love Graves outfits, they are so handy for layering. The top I'm wearing is a sweet gift I picked up at SL17B by ZED. The mask is by A&Y.  And yes, I know. I know... It's driving me crazy too, the nose is showing! But hey, Mr WASP is not doing safe pandemic mask wearing ok, he's a bug.

Aenigma: Post Apocalyptic: Cars vs Dinosaurs

(click to enlarge)
STORYLINE: 20 years ago, when Lars was a kid watching dinosaur movies and happily munching on popcorn, he never imagined how different the world would become. It wasn't just the climate that returned to the Hothouse Earth, but the giant reptilian rulers of that era were back too. So here he was, all grown up, in Antarctica, sweating his ass off, while barely hanging onto a raging Velociraptor as it attacked an old muscle car. What a time to be alive, right? Humanity was at war with itself over the last remaining land safe to live on. He was on team Harmony, and the others... well, let's just say they and their gas guzzling cars were in denial. There was no way to turn back time.

You just know I had to do Jurassic World, right? This post was inspired by cinphul gascan, Black Cat Velociraptor & poses at Aenigma's current Post Apocalyptic round, and the freebie Prehistorica Animesh Raptors at SL17B. Don't miss either of these great events!
