Obscure Curios for you to view

Well, it's official. I have another favorite shop. Curio Obscura is a newish shop I found out about a few months back. It's got alot of fun gizmos and gadgets for sale. It also has a large variety of doll/clockwork/wind-up things. Everything their is really well done, and has great, fun little touches to them. The SLURL for it is . The owner, Pandora Wrigglesworth, also has a blog here.

First up is the first thing I got from them, their Clockwork Automaton Lady AV. The skin itself comes in 8 shades; red, blue, black, white, pink, copper, rusty, and silver.

It's really well done and very highly detailed. Just look at the dimples on the cheeks below!

Next is the companion to the Automaton AV, the Edwardian dress and hat. This is one of the few outfits I've seen in SL that's perfect for a clockwork AV. I mean after all it's made entirely out of metal. It also comes in a variaty of colors to match the Automaton AV. I perfer to contrast a bit though. Copper and pink don't look too bad.

Another fun item to go with the Automaton AV is the Clockwork Brain It really smokes and looks almost like a little factory chugging away.

This one is a favorite of mine. It's the Inflatable Woman AV. You can inflate it either by pulling out a pump and doing it yourself, or by having someone hug you. The animation on it is great and the waddle you get when your all inflated is really cute! Here's the before inflation picture

And the after.

Normaly I don't buy vehicles much. I just don't have many places to use them. But when I saw the Horseless Gown, I had to get it. It's pretty cool looking, like the bottom of a ball gown. But the whole thing is actually a car.

It's fully recolorable. YOu can also lock it if you don't want anyone else to drive it. And it has a homing beacon oncase you loose it. The licence plate even has your name on it, and can be recolored too.

I also got a new hairstyle there. As you may or may not know, I have a bit of a weakness for diffrent, wild, or out their hair styles. This one is no exeption. It's called Wicked and it looks like something the Malifacent would wear.
If enought people like the idea, I might post a few other styles I got. Please let me know if you guys would like to see them!

Hey all! So I know I've been a bit absent in responding to people and to updating my blogFinals prep kinda sucked up all my time. But they went well, and now this week I can get a few updated done. First up I want to mention the voting for doll of the month at ALl Dolled Up. Like I said, I won Miss March. Well, a friend of mine, Rosemarie Gears is in the running for the April Doll of the Month.

Wedding bells for me!

Hey all! Just a quick update since this is big. I'm married! Kitti and I officially tied the knot yesterday. We had been planning on doing it for a long long time. I had been wanting a big ceremony, lots of fancy things, but I have had no time to plan anything. So, finally Kitti and I decided that all we we're doing was waiting for no reason. She asked me and of course I said yes :) So, we kinda eloped, so no wedding pictures. I might see if I can get one of Kitti and I in our wedding dresses though, hehehe. Here's a picture of the ring Kitti gave me.

It's gorgeouse, isn't it? The center stone, middle stone and outer stones are all color changable, as is the type of metal the band is made of. I'm very happy. Kitti is so wonderful and I'm so glad we're together :)

Cursed apples for sale!

Hey all. So my good friend Amea recently opened a shop named Vexation. But Vexation isn't just any type of shop. It's a cursed magic shop. Everything there does very fun things to the user. The SLURL is here. . Her first release is the Pomum Nemus. It's a very special bush thet sprouts apples that have..unique qualities, hehehe. Here's the thing. I don't want to spoil the suprise on what they do to anyone who wants to try one. SO, if you want to sample it and be suprised STOP READING! Then IM me in world and I'll give you one. I promice you won't be dissapointed. Especially if you run Restrained Life ;)

If you want to find out more about it, keep reading. I did an interview with Amea (The first interview I've ever done, so it's likely to be a little rough.) asking her about the Pomum Nemus.

Yora Vig: Ok, lets see, what kind of interests do you have in SL

Amea Aya: Scripting bizzare things, running around the grid looking for bizzare things, and roleplaying bizzare situations.

YV: And how did you come up with the idea for the apples?

AA: It stemmed from my love of inanimates of course, though I'm not sure what made me decide to make it. I was probably bored...

YV: I noticed it was Real Restraint enabled. I take it you like the features it has?

AA: Ah yes I ADORE them. I highly reccomend everyone that's into that sorta thing to replace their old veiwer.

YV: I also noticed some trees sprout apples?

AA: Yes, the Pomum Nemus is built to spread like a curse. Eat an apple, become a tree, grow and apple, someone picks it and eats it, they become a tree. And so on and so fourth.

YV: So it's very easy to get a whole grove of trees.

AA: Yup! And I've seen it happen once or twice.

YV: Ok, last question, how much is it?

AA: The apples are free. However they can take a while to grow. If you want a constant supply of apples you'll have to spend some money. The price starts at 2000L$ and is still there at the time of this interveiw, but after 50 sales it will raise to 3500L$ and eventually 4500L$. The price is to keep the plants slightly rare, so the whole grid doisn't end up an orchard.

And finally, a few pictures of me and others treed.
It takes a while usually to get free. The frist time I got lucky and got it in three attemps. The next, I was stuck for an hour and a half. I loved every minute of it though, LOL.

The dolls of spring

So last post I mentiond I went to two doll events in one day. The second one was the Spring Cotillion hosted by All Dolled Up. The theme for it was Over the Rainbow. Subversive Vavoom, the owner of All Dolled Up really went all out, decking out the ballroom. The place looked beautiful! She really went above and beyond making the place look gorgeous. There dance was alot of fun, but one of t he best moments was when my friend Petra Clawtooth was crowned Queen of Spring :) She really deserved it. Then a few days later I got a big suprise. Subversive aproached me and asked if I wanted to be Miss March on her doll calender. Of course I said yes. :) I was really honored she chose me. Here's a picture of what I'll be wearing on the calender.

The outfit is a combination of the Emerald Imp JewelDoll ensamble, and the Lady-In-Waiting ensamble from KK if your curious. BTW, Subversive will be holding voting for all the other months at her shop. Pop by and vote each month and help her build the calender! Also, pictures from the event are at All Dolled Up in a slideshow viewer!
