If you’re still looking for Halloween inspiration, you should really check out what MadPea has to offer on the Marketplace – they have two stores there: older items and more current ones – there is something for all budgets and, being MadPea, the items are quirky and packed with the kind of atmosphere perfect for this time of year.

Wondering where I am in the picture? Well.. I’m the table.. this fab avatar is just L$10 and I am totally in love with it..

..because it’s totally random and fun to just blend into your surroundings (assuming your surroundings make flesh-eating pies on period furniture seem normal!)

I scuttled off to take this picture at the creepily fantastic Bentham Manor, which is part of the Green Mire II Hunt. Today is the last day Green Mire is open and the last day of the hunt so make sure you wrap everything up and grab your last photo opportunities while you can – there are also two new gifts to pick up if you’re in Madpea’s free-to-join group:

Pea in Captivity Necklace

MadPea 8000 Watch

Lots, lots more is coming in November, including MadPea’s first adult only hunt – Blood Letters – I’ll be bringing you details soon, or you can always check out their awesome  official blog!

Have a spooktacular time, everyone!

Yay for the weekend! Although, the end of the month has just kinda crept up on me and I nearly forgot I wanted to show you some amazing items available at this month’s round of We Love Role-Play which is ending very soon!

This hat of yummy-texture-goodness is by sian and can be found in 5 individual colours or in a fatpack with 2 more, exclusive, colours. Check out the vendor pic here to see the others. I love blogging sian’s creations because they really help me to create more unusual outfits.. and I hope you like this one because I really enjoyed putting it together! The skirt, top and collar is from Eudora 3D and are also to be found at We Love Role-Play – available in sets of 6 colours or as a fatpack, vendor piccy here. Full credits and slurls further down.

Items at We Love Role-Play are discounted so, while they may be available in their respective mainstores soon, you might not find them at these prices again – so do take a good look around the event this weekend while you still can!

I also just want to quickly say that  The Fetish Circus, where I took this shot, is a truly incredible and beautifully crafted sim. I need to return to take some landscape shots (when I have more time for being patient with my graphic card limitations) but I highly recommend you take a look for yourselves – just be aware that it is adult land and you may see some naughtiness.

That’s me for the weekend – I hope you all have a lovely one!

This month MadPea took part in the Bleeping Bunny Hunt which ended on the 15th (I know, I’m sorry).. but the great news is that the mini side-hunt that they ran as a sponsor is being left up until the end of the month so you still have time to have some fun and get your hands on the fab hunt prizes priced at just L$5 each. The Mini-Hunt will give you clues to different locations around The Green Mire – some objects will contain more clues (these are free to buy) and some will contain prizes such as the slippers and filthy-mouthed shoulder pet (modifiable so you can tone down the chat if you prefer!) pictured here. Find and click on the poster to receive your first clue and happy hunting!

Pretty much everything else I’m wearing is also by MadPea – you can find these other goodies and more free group gifts in the big hangar at the landing point. It’s always worth a good rummage around there, you never know what you might find! Also, if you’re in the mood for more puzzles (and haven’t yet completed it) see if you can solve The Green Mire Mystery which paves the way for the new hunt starting next month.. YAY!

Finally, a quick comment on the photo resolution – although things have been rezzing for me a whole lot better since I updated Firestorm, my computer seems to be having an off-day so I haven’t been able to make my photos as large and prettyful as I would like, but they are very honest – I’ve done a very little work on the exposure of the first photo and just cropped the close-up – such pretty skin!

See you soon! ❤

When Snails Attack! (Kagami 2014)

I’ve waited to post about sian’s awesome items (more about these after the next pic) for this Japanese horror themed event because I wanted to be able to experience it fully for myself – and I’m so glad I have because it’s truly amazing! There is so much to see and do – I really took my time and spent a good few hours there (in sessions) but I still feel like I want to go back and do more. You land at the market area and from there you can pick up a HUD and instructions on how to play the game in which you follow and interact with an unfolding storyline.. a kind of puzzle adventure. The theme is horror but it’s creepy in parts rather than terrifying and I found the overall atmosphere interesting and endearing.. and the builds are beautifully done. It’s also completely free to play!

I’m seriously impressed with all aspects – it’s just so fun and engaging and with the main puzzle, hunt & mini games within the game, there is lots to see and do! I’ve posted a collage of some of the pics I took as a teaser – but I’m giving no spoilers about the rest of the experience.. I hope you all have chance to find out for yourselves. Kagami will be available until the end of the month so there is still plenty of time. SLURL here or read more on the official website.

As I mentioned earlier, the landing point is a market, and here you can shop for some truly original items designed especially for the event. sian very kindly sent me Chariot’s blog pack which contains a wealth of items based on the manga series Uzumaki.. I confess I haven’t read any of the manga, nor seen the film (though I now very much want to!) but the items are exceptional. I’ve always loved snails – there is just something about them that make me smile so, to me at least, the skullclamp, earrings and bracelet hit a sweet spot between creepy/sinister and cute (because ‘OMG there’s another snail.. squee!) – I appreciate you may feel somewhat differently if you don’t like snails but you still gotta appreciate the gorgeous textures and originality.. I particularly love the bracelets for the snail trails! For each main item you buy there are bonus snails – for decor and for your hand – and there is also a fatpack of all the ‘Spiral Obsession‘ items available at a very reasonable L$400.

Seeing as I’ve been enthusiastic with my editing of the photo I’ve included a raw shot after the credits.. and a shot of the items displayed on a rather interesting mannequin head I picked up on the Marketplace. Hopefully they give you a little more detail, but I also recommend taking a look at sian’s flickr as the photos there are always incredibly beautiful and you’ll also be able to see the table in its full glory.

I hope you take the opportunity to visit Kagami while it’s there and show some love to the creators and participating designers if you’re able because without them our little world would be a whole lot less interesting!

See you soon!

This is going to be a picture-heavy post but I couldn’t resist because the colours and surroundings were so beautiful. I finally made my way to the stunning Noble sim as featured on Cait’s blog and, I’m sure, many others. It is absolutely gorgeous and I need to go back to take many more photos! A nice touch is that if you join the group you may rez objects – a very useful thing for bloggers! The group costs L$150 to join but I think that’s a more than fair contribution to make towards such a lovely place.

Several of the items I’m wearing are from The Gallery Gift Shop‘s anniversary event and hunt.. including this fabulous hat by Aniki and Mayhem Seetan of Azoury. It is so much fun to wear and the textures capture the light beautifully.. there are two colours available (black and gray) and both are for sale at The Gallery’s event for just L$79 each.

The amazing easel set is by Pandora Popstar of LISP – it includes various poses and let’s you ‘paint’ a picture over a certain amount of time (3, 9 & 15 minute options are included as are a wearable brush and palette). It’s really cool to watch the picture develop and, once completed, it gives you the image to place onto a canvas (also included). There are several pictures built in to the set but you also have the option of adding your own.. which is what I’ve done here.

I’m going to stop chattering now and just post the rest of the pics.. full credits are at the end of the post!

Thanks for stopping by! ❤

Quoth the MadPea, “Please don’t eat me!”

Quoth the MadPea

MadPea has recently made a whole bunch of their older items available on the Marketplace for prices ranging from L$10L$100. They are a eclectic collection of Stuff and Things from past games and hunts created before mesh existed and you can find them all in a store named MadPea Productions’ old items. If you’ve been following MadPea for a while I’m sure many of these items will make you nostalgic.. but there is plenty to appreciate for the new player, too!

I was immediately drawn to the raven avatar as they are my very favourite bird.. and it is delightful! Included in the pack are all the usual body parts plus 2 versions of the head (with/without pea in beak) and a fab AO which has you bob and look around as you stand, hop as you walk and, of course, flap those wings as you fly. All for just L$10! Just watching it makes me smile – it’s really very well done.

I took the above photo at MadPea’s new spot in-world: The Green Mire – a dark swamp with its very own mystery. I’m still working through it (and I wouldn’t spoil it by giving out details anyway!) but you can read a little more on the back story over on the MadPea Blog. The Green Mire is also home to the MadPea’s mainstore which features their more current items. As with all of their builds, it’s a fun place to be whether you’er shopping, taking photos, practicing your detective skills or just looking for an atmospheric hangout!

Hope you’ve all been having a good week!

Caw!
