Necrotize: An Impostor Among Us

(click to enlarge)
STORYLINE: The PA system of The Skeld suddenly crackled to life, "Emergency! Emergency! Meeting Called!" Crewmate Pink rushed down the spaceship hallway. Not again... not another death. First was Purple, then Yellow, and now... ? She was so lost in her thoughts that she ran right into crewmen Blue. A monstrous tongue whipped out of a gaping hole in his belly right at her. She screamed. BANG! BANG! BANGBANG! Bullets ricocheted off metal. She ducked and covered her head. After the smoke cleared, she heard heels clicking towards her. "Is he dead?," she shyly asked. The heels stopped. It was Cyan, "You mean IT. Blue died a long time ago. And you're welcome." She put her gun back into it's holster. Green kicked off Blue's helmet to reveal the skeletal remains hidden inside. White gasped, "That's not possible! Blue was with me in engineering the whole time! He couldn't have been dead!" Red sighed, "Of course its possible. How long have we been without oxygen? With these stupid helmets on, none of us can even see each other! We have no idea how long he was like.... that," she shuddered. "Umm... guys," Black began slowly. "If Blue was in engineering, who sabotaged the oxygen so we needed to wear helmets?"  They all looked at each other suspiciously, and slowly backed away. Among them was another alien, if not more....

Necrotize is open to fill your Halloween with creepy Scifi horror.  If you haven't guessed already, this image was inspired by the game "Among Us," the animated Maw from Ambix, and the many super cool alien and astronaut boots available at Necrotize. (Be sure to check out the Cinphil and Cureless boots with male fits!) The event looks like the alien mothership from the nightmares of H.R. Giger. You have got to go check it out. And also there are lots of gifts for you too, just touch those icky green eggs... if you dare!  Booowahahahahah.

Engine Room: The Alliance

(click to enlarge)

STORYLINE: The defenders of the natural world gathered their forces. Stepping before the howling troops was General Pa-Hin, Chief and Shamen of the Sioux Nation. His name meant porcupine. "Today is a day that will go down into legend," he began slowly, his booming voice echoing in the warehouse full of heavily armed Lycans. The rowdy beasts calmed down and looked up at their leader, hypnotized by his every word. "It is an honor you accept me as one of your own, and allow me to lead you. Today is the last day of the life-sucking blight upon the Earth. Now is our time!" A young wolf began to howl, and his peers chastised him for loosing his cool. His ears drooped. The general smiled benevolently at the excitable pup, then continued, "While our arrogant enemy is preoccupied with the human's war and petty squabbles for power among themselves, they have forgotten to protect their most precious members." He dramatically pointed his cane towards the Castle of the Elders in the distance, "Kill them and all their blood sucking slaves join them in oblivion." Rolling hoots and howls erupted. The ground shook below their pounding paws. But with one small wave of Pa-Hin's hand, they silenced again. "This task will fall to the hands of our new dear ally, the esteemed Vampire Hunter's Association. Their representative, Mademoiselle Jacqueline, only asks that we get her elite squad of assassins inside. It is our job to SMASH their walls and break their defenses to safely deliver the hunters inside." He hands her a scroll,  "Thanks to this valuable map, her team knows exactly where the Fiends sleep."

This finale post was inspired by the dieselpunk offerings at the Engine Room and Indigenous Peoples Day. The porcupine jacket by Hotdog includes fits for men and women. The Butanik83 Life-support Boiler and matching gift Arm Pressirizer include a hud to change the textures. Seka eyepatch has a textures and matching Rusty nail septum is a gift I repurposed to be an earring. The crow headed walking cane is by The White Crow and includes a version that smackable weapon.

The Engine Room: Attack on Castle Noctem

(click to enlarge)

STORYLINE: In the frozen wastelands, far from humanity, sat Castle Noctem, the fortress of the Vampire Elders. It was the most precious real estate in all vampiredom for a simple reason that the nights were long, and in deep winter, the sun didn’t rise at all. Being so far removed from their food source was not a problem as most the ancients were asleep. They were guarded 24/7 by the elite Royal Guard. They were outfitted with the latest technology, their armor impervious to daylight. It would be foolish for anyone to dare attack such a heavily fortified castle. So it came as quite a shock when the sirens began to wail. 

Tonight at the Engine Room there will be party and halftime giveaway you won't want to miss! See you there at 2pm - 4pm SLT.

The image above is inspired by the cool Process of Elimination Tannhauser armor. It comes in fits for many mesh bodies, and even digigrade leg for furries too. The texture hud will allow you to switch out the colors to your own preference. Also shown in the badass Val'More Prototype Revolver. It includes fun hold animations like flipping the bullet up and down. It had texture hud for switching the glowing word on the front, metallic color, and if you want to show or hide the crossbow.

The Engine Room: Monsieur Bleu

(click to enlarge)

STORYLINE: The glamorous owner of the Vampire Ballet was not one to trifle with. Monsieur Bleu's image was that of a kind gentleman with a love for the arts. His enemies considered him the most docile of the vampire elders. The Werewolves were not scared as they captured his poorly hidden coffin during the day. They planned to experiment on him deep in the most secure section of the Vampire Hunter’s lair. However, as simple creatures they didn't know it was the day of the solar eclipse. They were caught completely by surprise when Monsieur Bleu exploded from his coffin with a ferocious attack. One by one they fell to his sharp high-powered wolfsbane venom injectors. They had no idea they walked right into his trap. It was Monsieur Bleu himself who leaked his coffin whereabouts to their spy. The foul oversized dogs were never a match for such a beautiful villain as himself, he claimed, afterall, one doesn’t live as long by being a fool.

Fall is my favorite time of year, and because Halloween is going to be a bit different year, I was feeling nostalgic for Halloweens past. So this image is inspired by both the new (The Engine Room) and the old (RMK Gothic). You can see the Engine Room’s shopping catalog here: Shopping Guide.    

The two-toned long ponytail River hair by RavenBell is on sale at Neo Japan with a texture hud for top and bottom. At the Engine Room, the outfit and shoulder harness are by Gabriel. Don’t miss the free gift of rigged goggles by Gabriel that match, as well as all the other many gifts! From Ungod are the stabby stabby finger jewelry that come in blood or poison. And jaw dropping gorgeous Dornenburg skybox by Varsons. It includes an interior hall and small room with a fireplace. Poses are on the park bench.
