Unlikely Eve

“If you consent, neither you nor any other human being shall ever see us again; I will go to the vast wilds of South America. My food is not that of man; I do not destroy the lamb and the kid to glut my appetite; acorns and berries afford me sufficient nourishment. My companion will be of the same nature as myself and will be content with the same fare. We shall make our bed of dried leaves; the sun will shine on us as on man and will ripen our food. The picture I present to you is peaceful and human, and you must feel that you could deny it only in the wantonness of power and cruelty.” – Frankenstein, chapter 17

The neverborn mate of the creature, the culmination of his plan to make peace with mankind, the symbol of hope and happiness that companionship brings to the lonely. What if she was not destroyed half-formed, what if Frankenstein kept his word and let his creature escape the civilization with his newborn mate into the warmer wilds than Europe can offer?

She would know nothing of the humans except the horror stories her mate bestows upon her to warn her away. To her eyes neither of them look monstrous for she’d have nothing to compare to nor any shocked reactions to prove such judgments correct. How long would she stay innocent, this unlikely Eve of crafted dead flesh brought to life again?

Perhaps it would all work out like the creature dreamed, perhaps they could have been happily lost in their own paradise. Unless, of course, one day her matured curiosity lured her out of the jungle and into the light…

A Tattered Page is a new in-store event that draws its inspiration from books. The first round focuses on Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein and you can find the shopping guide from the website. The creature skins with stitches are event exclusive by Fallen Gods Inc., sold for the event duration together with the non-exclusive unstitched cadaver skin, courtesy cadaver eyes and a mountain load of appliers for both genders.

Bunlings Bewildered

“Agent Aww, what was so important that the bunny signal has been lit and the whole bunny mafia has emerged out of the secret burrows and pockets? You know you’re supposed to pad in shadows.”

bb1cs“I told them that, boss, but there was no helping it. They just keep arguing!”

“We want to know what our battle cry is!”

“Bunlings Be Brave!”

“No, Burrow! Bunlings Burrow! And then we hide, see.”

bb2cs“Ah… I see. A serious matter, then. And it has to start with B, of course?”

“Of course! You don’t see Avengers gathering, now do you? Bunlings… Balance? Blossom? Brandish?”

bb3cs“Babble, because that’s what you’re doing right now. You even dragged poor phasing Nessie out and into this.”

“Banquet! And then we assault carrot fields.”

bb4cs“Fine, fine… you can all come up with a phrase each and then vote on them: raised ear yes, lowered ears no. Captain Floppy, you get to organize the ballot. Yes, you may suggest Bunlings Ballot if you wish. But until the voting is done: bounce.”

Ozimals have absolutely hilarious Summer Blockbuster Bunny Gacha going on, a separate gacha for heroes and villains. The bunny signal and super sekret weapon are from it as well. You can read more about these special bunlings in the Ozimals blog here. The boss bun-lady has a hairdo by Alice Project, available currently in Hair Fair. The outfit by GALLACTIC, skin by Pink Fuel, makeup and eyes by Pin Me Down and headphones-ears by Remarkable Oblivion are available in their respective main stores.

After the Fall

Day 221, AF549. Woke up to the sounds outside. Screeching. Went to check. Dispersed the swarm, exterminated the stragglers and the stubborn. Light too harsh in mornings, why can’t they ruckus in the night?

outpost2bsDay 235, AF549. The right-side radar implant jams a little. I should have it checked the next time I leave the outpost. With the sunspot storms that’ll be another cycle and a half still. Better calibrate an emergency back-up, just in case.

outpost3bsDay 291, AF549. Performed the obligatory three-cycle scan-and-maintenance on the outer structures. It holds up well, not even a scratch from the screechers. Worth every exchange I did for it.

outpost4bsDay 301, AF549. The light is dimming. If I’m lucky, I might be able to get supplies quarter cycle early. If I’m not, this is just a herald of a new weather change. Or environment. Like that time the radiation rains hit the first time.

outpost1bsDay 336, AF549. Finished all my discs on The Boredom of the Past. I know, I know, worthless fiction, but it keeps me going. Just thinking of a world where everything is mundane and reliable and steady is a relief. Besides, the main clerk is just dreamy.

Almost everything in the whole scenario is from Futurewave. I turned the dress by [ SAKIDE ] and the chaps by .::Aftershok::. into a top and pants combination, although it creates some intriguing cuts in the process, since they really are chaps, not pants. The arm warmers by @->~ISD and the mask by .::Aftershok::. completed the selective covering. The radar eyes from *~By Snow* come with a HUD for selecting colours for everything, including the moving radar and the blips on it. The skin by Pink Fuel has an included layer for face glow amongst gazillion options and I’ll be playing with it more in posts where most of my face remains visible. The poses by {Rook} worked wonderfully with the ray guns by GALLACTIC and [bauwerk] is responsible for the most perfect post-apocalyptic safety outpost ever. The hair by Alice Project is available in The Thrift Shop.

Stay Away

All the stories got it wrong. They paint the forest full of terrors and threats, scare the humans away from our home, turn tales into metaphors of fearing the unknown and not talking to strangers.

red1bsThere was no human child for a wolf to hunt, wolves know better than draw in angry hunters. It doesn’t mean the forest would be safe or welcoming for their clueless, noisy kind.

red2bsPerhaps grandmother really has sharp teeth — you don’t want to get on her bad side, especially during the full moon — but I’d like to see anyone try to take her down. Age brings experience and cunning to the pack, not frailty.

red3bsIn truth, there really might be a woman wearing red in the woods, but if a huntsman ever raises an axe against a wolf, that tale won’t end well for the human. All the stories got it wrong. Just as we wanted, just as we planned. These are our forests. Stay away.

The new round of Enchantment has just started and its theme is Little Red Riding Hood. The dress by The Muses, necklace by House of Rain, hair flowers by .Enfant Terrible., skin by .Birdy., eyes by !Chop Shop!, wolf by Alchemy, nails by .Infiniti. and the poses by an lar are all from the event. The event items are exclusive, so go shop while you still can!

Krampus the Yule Yak

It’s almost time. All the signs are there: the shifting colours to very specific spectrum of reds and greens, the emergence of lights in the middle of the darkness, the mistletoe and holly and all other words ending in -olly.

krampus1csWe’ll leave the reindeers to more commercial types and instead set out with yaks. Nobody expects the yak acquisition! Acquisition and re-delivery, that’s the name of the game. The Great Yak Company: bringing smiles and laughter around the world since the… era that you’ve never heard of but is surely there. Yes.

krampus2bsLittle Krampus here is a perfect candidate, ready for hours of work to find things that were lost and to bring them to people who miss them. Sometimes it’s the same people, sometimes different. We don’t mind, we’re creative about the whole distribution. It’s not about who throws money around the most, it’s about how to make the most people smile in the end.

krampus3bsSo when you have a moment to sit down in all the commercial stress and rush, listen to the clip-clop of tiny yak hooves and prepare to enjoy the spirit of Gothmas: accept yourself with all your misgivings, accept the people around you with all of theirs, take a deep breath and simply smile.

Most of the look can be found in Gothmas by Gaslight: the dress by :{MV}:, the earrings by House of Rain, the eyeshadow by Beautiful Freak and the liner by Pin Me Down are available in Cursed. The ribbony Batty necklace by lassitude & ennui is available in Sium. The delightful stripes in the hair are from the new Winter HUD by Alice Project, colouring your favourite hairdos to new tones. The yule antlers by Cerridwen’s Cauldron are available in the current round of We Love Role-play. The skin by Al Vulo is from The Dressing Room: Fusion, the house by Scarlet Creative from Collabor88, the eyes by Adoness from her Christmas Market and the rocking chair by Atelier Visconti and the yak by +Half-Deer+ from The Garden. The dresser by DIGS, the crown by Schadenfreude and the tree and wreath by Trompe Loeil can be won at The Arcade.

Not Quite Twins

Does it really matter if one prefers pastel glow and the other dragon scales? If one’s hair bounces in curly pigtails and the other goes for crimson red with black streaks?

anemia1csDoes the colour of the dress really matter? Black or white, red or purple. To a point it does: the covers reflect inner choices, decisions, preferences. Personality shows in palettes, poses, fabrics, styles. 

anemia2csOnce you go past the clothes, past the colours, past the surface, you’ll realize that there are more similarities than there are differences. Spices, flavors, nuances do not change the fact that in the larger scale of things we are all the same.

anemia3csSisters in different personality wrappings.

Almost everything here is from Gothmas by Gaslight. The skins by Fallen Gods Inc. (now complete with Slink appliers, huzzah!), the surroundings from *~by Nacht and the liner by Pin Me Down can be found in Cursed. The jewelry by Bliensen + MaiTai, shoes by .Enfant Terrible., gothbrellas by Pale Empress (gacha) and the dresses by [ SAKIDE ] are available in Sium.

Come On In!

I promise we’ll play nice! I also promise that our definition of ‘nice’ will leave you alive and mostly breathing, too. 

comein1bsWe are if not exactly cheerful, at least somewhat amused. Surely this counts? Very similar positive feeling, no? Don’t be afraid, step right through and join us!

comein2csAll this to say that Gothmas by Gaslight is now open: come on in and enjoy! If one sim is full, try the other, there’s two for a good reason: Cursed & Sium. The dress by The Muses can be found in Sium and the jewelry by House of Rain and the makeup by Beautiful Freak in Cursed. The poses and the delightful Coraline-prop by Flash Friendly Poses are located in Sium. The eyes and nails by Adoness can be purchased in F R O S T.
