Twisted Hunts are long known to be some of the most challenging yet most rewarding hunts on the grid. For this holiday season Twisted is running their Krissmuss celebration as a more traditional sale event instead. Running through January 3, 2018 is Twisted Krissmuss. There are 60 merchants participating in this event and items are only L$100 each.
One of the many participating designers is SongBird. She’s created the Frosted Eyes seen below.
It’s that time of the year again! Of course SongBird has brought us something delightful for the season. Check out these Spoopy Capris!
Halloween is my favorite holiday. It always has been and it likely always will be. I’m also one of those people who treats every day like Halloween if I can get away with it. These Spoopy Capris are a wicked awesome way to manage the Halloween look no matter what time of year it is.
The skeleton outline matches my Maitreya body very well. In this post it’s accented with the Skeleton Tattoo by Demonic which is also a close match. The two may not line up perfectly depending on your body, but it’s close enough to absolutely rock it.
The capris come with a color changing HUD. There are two tabs: Colours and Faded. Both have ten options as seen in the Pics & Credits section below. Please note that each of these colors changes the entire pant. The image below is not a wearable option, simply a single image showing off every color.
The Spoopy Capris fit Maitreya, Belleza, and Slink. You can purchase them for only L$250 at the SongBird mainstore.
It’s never too early to post a Nightmare Before Christmas reference, especially when the product on display is so perfect for Halloween. SongBird has created the Scarlet Pox for this Fall’s Twisted Hunt.
The 18th biannual Twisted Hunt is live! Victorian Gothic and Burgundy Wine are the common theme behind the products. And oh, the products! Over 80 designers have created and hidden items just for you. This hunt is known as the hardest hunt in Second Life, but very well worth the effort! The hunt will end on September 30th so make sure to get started by visiting the Twisted Headquarters Hunt Start Point soon!
If you’re not already familiar with her work, SongBird releases gothic, horror, and macabre products for us to enjoy. These goodies include things like unsettling eyes, bloody wounds, doll skins, and more. Make sure to visit her store so you can enjoy her contributions to the hunt as well as all the other awesome items she has for sale.
The Scarlet Pox
Want to do a historical reenactment of the US colonies in the late 1700s? Itching to display your allegiance to Nurgle? Maybe you just like having communicable diseases or getting into the Halloween spirit. Whatever your reason, the Scarlet Pox is actually pretty sweet.
When youfind the Twisted Hunt cube in SongBird’s store you’ll get the Scarlet Pox Omega applier for mesh as well as tattoo later for classic avatars.
The Miracle Elixir Gacha is playable right from the SongBird store. It includes 6 different magical elixir props as well as the rare Miracle Elixir Showcase box.
Sometimes things just don’t go as expected when using mesh heads and bodies in Second Life. Here are some of the most common issues:
Skin, makeup or tattoos don’t apply
Skin, makeup or tattoos appear distorted
Eyelashes are clumpy
Skin, makeup, or tattoos are shiny
Makeup or tattoos are faded
Old body parts show through the new mesh body parts
And many, many more…
While all of these things can be very frustrating, thankfully they are usually an easy fix!
Some of the most common problems come from trying to use appliers. If you’re not familiar with them make sure to check out our in depth post on how appliers work.
If you’re finding that skin, makeup, or tattoos aren’t showing up at all it can be a few different things. First you’ll want to make sure you’re using the correct appliers. A Catwa applier, for example, won’t apply to a Lelutka head. If you’re using Omega appliers (the “universal” applier) make sure you also have your Omega System Relay Kits on. You may have to click the relays to activate them. For more information on ensuring you have the right applier and how to use appliers please check out Appliers: How Do They Work?
You’ve seen many fantasy avatars by now, from vampires and demons to elves and nekos. Today I bring you something a little different: a creepy broken doll.
Get The Broken Doll Look
Most of this look can be achieved with products you may already have. The main part that makes the doll is the tattoo layer discussed in the ~SongBird~ section below. Everything else is just added bonus! Any skin will work, though I love the super pale skin since it gives her that extra creepy, fragile vibe. If you’re using a mesh body parts you can utilize the shiny options to really make the glass doll effect pop.
The porcelain skin Astral Allure is a wonderful base for a doll. The skin itself is a pure, simple look that comes with various customization options. Please note that Astral Allure is simply the skin used, the cracks and doll joints are actually a separate product.
The HUD below shows all but the nipple color options that Astral Allure comes with. It’s really versatile and great for fantasy styles.
By setting the shiny option on the body and head to max I was able to give the doll a great polished glass look. While the effect is slightly visible in the photos it’s really noticeable when moving through a well lit area.
Four times a year Second Life is graced with the event known as Memento.Mori. The event caters to the macabre, horror, and Gothic sides of Second Life. This is a great opportunity for those of you who like unique avatars. At this event you’ll find a far different look than the stereotypical pretty outfits and makeups. Regardless I, and many others, still see much beauty in the products.
Memento.Mori opened last night at 3PM SLT. It will close May 27, 2017 at 9PM SLT. Make sure to get in and see all the cool things! Today you get to sneak a peek at some awesome gore tattoos by ~SongBird~.
In Love With A Monster
The first thing I noticed when putting on In Love With A Monster was how deep the wounds appeared. They aren’t just scratch marks; you’ll notice the tender skin around the wounds themselves. This is perfect for any avatar looking for harsh wounds on the back. The tender skin is more noticeable on pale skin, however the scratches still work wonderfully on darker tons as well. The way the marks fit the body looks painful yet oddly elegant. They work in both a sexual setting where the scratches may have come from somebody in front of you and in an attack setting where perhaps you were mauled from behind.
