Battles in Wonderland

1 Alice had long been told she was mad. "After all, we are all Mad here..." The Hatter's saying may as well have been the National Anthem of Wonderland, if people there could put aside their contrariness and concentrate for long enough to make such a decision. 3 That, of course, was about as likely as the caterpillar putting aside his pipe, or the dormouse staying dry. This was not to say that nothing ever changed there, no. Alice's reputation as 'Mad' had been confirmed for many by her rebellion against the Queen of hearts. Was it mad to stand up against tyranny? Alice couldn't think so. 2 It could feel like a never ending task, visiting friends and strangers; letting them know the reign of the Queen was at an end, along with all of her inexplicable rules. There would always be those not accepting of change, and then further battles would follow. If they called her mad for making a change, or mad for expecting them to change along with her she didn't mind. With her Cheshire she would walk the new Wonderland, setting minds and hearts free.

 First post of items from The Fantasy Gacha Carnival in November. The theme this month is MMORPG Battlefield, and there are, as ever, items from the wonderful designers to suit all tastes and RP styles. I've tried hard this month to stick to advice of others who play the gachas, try three times, if you didn't get the item or the colour you were after, c'est la vie. Move on. I say I tried. I didn't always succeed... Still, gachas being gachas, that just means I had some very lucky friends who got my duplicates!

Scream! Halloween Is Near!

Scream! Halloween is near, the otherworldly souls stir and whisper, ready to meet the living. Lady Death ascends the throne for a night, ruling over whatever creature in any realm. Scream, as long as you are able to scream... because silence will be even more terrifying.

Contest Entry - Scream!

Meiló Minotaur and her RL daughter CapCat Ragu are two amazingly talented women whose contribution to SL visual arts cannot be duly appreciated. Their fantastic avatars have a unique and unmistakable style, but what makes them even more unique is that - regardless of where they pop up in SL - they are free and modifiable. I'm an absolute fan of these creatures, so you can understand why I promptly scooted over to Pumpkin Town when I read the blog entry of Eupalinos Ugajin about Lady Death.
The creepy horns are a new creation by Soul (formerly De La Soul), available at The Mystic Realms Faire in the Eldertree Village sim.

Avatar: "Lady Death" by Meiló Minotaur - a free gift available at Pumpkin Town until October 31st.
Horns: "Horns of the Deep" by Soul - there are three different sets ("Proud", "Scribe" and "Warrior") available at The Mystic Realms Faire (249 L$ for a single pack with a texture and colour HUD; the fatpack costs 749 L$), so you can pick your style.
Fangs: Pulse VF, part of the vampire avatar "Xyla" that comes with your starting library in SL.
Pose: "Underwater No.5" by HelaMiyo - a free hunt gift in the main shop.

Let The Sun Shine - 7th Anniversary Celebrations At Fallen Gods Inc.

Yes, let the Sun sparkle and shine, especially for us living on the Northern hemisphere where Autumn is under the gardens. Fallen Gods Inc. is one year older again, and - instead of expecting presents like a customary birthday boy - Alia Baroque is giving out surprise after surprise to the people in SL for a week. Read the programme here, then visit Selidor and try to convince the blue genie in the Fortune Teller's Booth to surrender his treasure, then visit the Sun Market, party with our fantastic in-house DJs... and, of course, wish Alia and the Fallen many, many happy returns of the day!

Let The Sun Shine

Avatar: "Solaris" by Fallen Gods Inc. - a free Fortune Teller gift at Selidor. The package includes a unique male and female skin with skin appliers, hair, eyes, outfit, wings and jewellery... a precious, real treat!
Additional accessories: "Volund" by alpha.tribe - the golden sphere and the wavy wire structures are part of the magnificient avatar that was available at Alpha Auer's last installation, Imago Anatopism.
Pose: "Crystal Ball No.6." by //elephante// poses - gacha prize at the main shop (50 L$ per play).
The picture was taken at H22O.

Candy is dandy, but liquor is quicker...

Tensions were rising at the candy store...
Summer was over, but Elise found it hard to let go. The blossoms in her world lingered, pink blooms still surrounded her side of the shop, the waning season's final stronghold. Customers loved the continuity of candyfloss from the flowers into the shop, where pink and white sugar mice lined up row on row on row.
Beta looked to the future, now October was here it was time to celebrate her favourite time of year. Black grasses curled around the pathways on her side of the store. Leaves has already fallen from the trees, piling up, pooling in blood red swirls. It was time to decorate for the approaching all hallows eve!
Of course, in the end, sweet harmony would reign. The seasons would progress, each would celebrate their holidays and seasons with a toast to each other, their business, and candy!

Only a few days left to grab up these goodies at the Candy Fair 2014!

Music to their ears - The Candy Fair 2014

The train had rattled and rolled through the countryside all night. Sleep had been the last thing on her mind as she stole aboard in the orange stained twilight of the city's railway depot. The click-clacking of wheels on rails had formed a pleasant beat in her mind, lulling her into sleep, resting back on her guitar case. As morning had dawned, pale fingers of light stealing through the crack in the door, she had awoken. Pushing the truck door open wide as the train slowly rounded a bend into some small town, she blinked, rubbing her eyes. It didn't help. Something was very wrong. Except for herself, the world and everything in it as far as she could see, was grey.
So far as she could tell, the town was deserted. No workers busied themselves at the station as the train did not halt, merely slowed, the driver apparently as troubled by the place as she, though lacking her curiousity. Sparks flew as wheels spun in place on the tracks, such was the haste with which the train was asked to depart. Jumping down, Lya watched the train pull away into the grey haze of distance. Turning to the town, still she saw no one, streets were empty, but the stores were open, groceries on the shelves still fresh, though as grey as their surroundings. After some time exploring she sank to the ground outside one store, leaning back against a towering grey telegraph pole to rest. Unclipping the latches on her guitar case, she lifted the unusual instrument from its niche and began to play. The soft notes strummed from the strings reverberated in the still street, tendrils of sound wove from the instrument, their vibrations shaking colour from the air. 2 As the song came to an end, sounds from buildings nearby met her ears, the creak of a swing in the playground across the street... She opened her eyes. The grey shadows, so perfectly blended with their surroundings that she had missed them entirely, regained their form, colour and voices. Clambering over a nearby taxi she scrambled up onto the roof of the market to take in a view of the town, restored to life and colour through music. 3
Prepare yourself for a sugar overload! The Candy Fair 2014 has arrived - running from October 3rd to October 17th over two sims. Each sim is packed full with amazing stores, offering delightful items in a candy theme, from the lightest sweetest sherbet to the darkest smokiest bonfire toffee.
