100 Ways to Creep You Out

I'd like to look inside Princess Aii's head sometime. Her mind must be a fascinating place!

Centipedes can be considered the penultimate nightmare or a marvel of engineering. There are estimated to be over 8000 types of centipedes worldwide with 3000 of them being uniquely identified. Depending on the species, a centipede can have as few as 15 pairs of legs, or as many as 171 pairs. Regardless of the species, centipedes always have an odd number of leg pairs, so they never have exactly 100 legs. All centipedes are predators and are unique in having poison in their leg tips.

The latest from +Aii+ is just about guaranteed to give you nightmares. The animated mesh tail and additional horns, claws, legs and pinchers are very well done. It comes with a hud that allows 11 main colors, 11 accent colors, 12 colors for legs, 7 colors for pinchers and 9 tattoo colors + a tintable one . It comes with an AO for the legs and tail. You can wear your regular AO to animate your upper body. It comes with Omega appliers for the tattoos.

I did have a glitch when trying to use my system head with this avi. It didn't want to cooperate with the mesh and gave me that lovely buggy-eyed look we occasionally get when adding mesh to a non-mesh avi, so I do recommend using a mesh head.
In her release notes, Aii said this was the first, so expect more beautiful bug ugly avis to come.

Happy Solstice/Merry Christmas!

Happy Solstice, Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Three Kings Day, St. Lucia Day, Bodhi Day, Ramadan, Life Day, Yule... you get the picture.

There are something like 34 different holidays celebrated worldwide during the month of December.

How ever you mark the turning of the year, the return of the light or the miracle of life, I hope that you and your loved ones will know peace, love, laughter and safety.

Thank you for following me here. I hope to see you in 2016 ♥

I found a suitably impressive location to take pictures, Morphe. All the buildings are for sale including the wonderful Cathedral. [Yes, I really was flying in the vault.] It's really worth walking through the sim if you like medieval architecture. It's very well done and has a wonderful period stream playing.

Winter Markets

Holiday time approaches and SL's most creative designers have lots of bargains and limited edition items available in special sales all over the gird. Here are just a few of the special events that I visited this week

Frozzen Fair II
Some of the upscale designers got together for this one and there are some nice things to be had.
There are gachas in addition to items in the shops. There are some freebees and lots of $1 gifts.

Hair ~ Truth Hair Bronwyn available on MP special "12 days of savings"
Skin ~ Plastik Astrali May Skin
Sweater ~ Ghee Aran Knit Dress with hud

Christmas Winter Dream Market
Need a new outfit for a holiday event? Looking for a tree or some sim decorations?  If it is even vaguely related to the winter holidays, there's probably something here that will fill your needs.
There is an event-wide snowflake hunt as well as shopping and gachas. The hunt snowflakes are L$10-L$30.
Some of the stores also have free items under the tree or in Christmas stockings, so enjoy!http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Rockin/161/128/2003

Antlers ~ +Aii+ Frosted Reindeer Horns
Hair ~ Rezology Fouette ~ hair can be tinted to any shade with hud
Jewelry ~ !dM Noelle JingleBells
Outfit ~ Tamiorn Forge X-mas Girl ~ group gift for December
Pose ~ La Petite Morte Nutcracker Suite Ballet

Totally Top Shelf ~ Black Krampus
Those of you who have been following me for a while know I'm rather fond of demons. If you've never heard of the Krampus, you will. He's a hot commodity this year! He's a demon who is the counterpart of Santa.
Krampus takes care of the BAD kids. [My refrigerator has been covered with Krampus magnets for the last five years. I really don't like bad kids and it's a good reminder!] There's a Krampus film due out this weekend which looks destined to be a cult classic and Krampus has engendered at least one hunt and this shopping event in SL.

Under a suitably gloomy sky in a snowbound forest, you'll find wonderfully dark and gothic items for your holiday needs. The uninitiated may feel they've slipped through into Halloween Town, but I loved it!
There are lots of sexy clothing, hair, horns and hooves. There are a few gachas, but most of the items are for direct sale.

Avatar ~ Coveted offers this LE Female Krampus, which includes the skin, hair, fur, tail horns, hooves, clothing ... everything you need, including the bag to carry away the bad kids! There are editions in gold and bronze too, as well as men's editions. To make it even sweeter, if you click the LM sign at the Coveted Krampus shop, you'll get $100 gift card you can use at the Coveted store.
