Movie Night

With darker nights and the cooler weather setting in I always think this is a great time of year to shut the rest of the world outside where it belongs and settle down with a movie or two. Of course to go with the warmth, comfortable clothing and movies one should always have something delicious to drink and far too many unhealthy snacks to munch on. The extra calories lead to extra layers of insulation ready for the cold weather- or so I try to convince myself anyway.

In previous Halloween themed posts I've shown Freddy, Chucky and his Bride, zombies, pumpkins and a witch oh my! Today I'm going to end this series of seasonal posts with another fantastic complete avatar from Death Row Designs. This time we have...

Beetlejuice!

Beetlejuice - DrD Avatar

Beetlejuice.
Beetlejui.....

Beetlejuice house

As always the quality of this item is outstanding. It is one of quite a large collection of DrD dolls Jaimy has been pumping off the production line recently. There is such variety in the items available at the store and all at a reasonable prices.

I'm not sure how long it will be there, but at the time of posting there is a free mesh 'skin' corset available for anyone that wants it along with the usual lucky chairs and midnight mania boards that are waiting to be slapped.

Here's hoping you all have a happy, safe and spooktacular all hallows' eve!

Until next time,
Kooky.

Frightened Out Of My Skin

And now there is nothing left but bones. I knew I should have steered clear of that ghost train but curiosity got the better of me once again.

Mesh [PB] Skeleton

Just a quick post this evening to show off another absolutely amazing Halloween freebie - This time from Plausible Body . You can pick up the avatar for nothing, or leave a donation to show your appreciation if you feel inclined to do so.

This avatar has been created using mesh and is customisable as far as the level of transparency and colour you want your skeleton to be goes. All you need do is drop the mesh object on the ground, go into 'edit mode' and fiddle with it until you have something you're happy with.

Until next time,
Kooky.

It's Just Child's Play

I really am in my element at the moment scouring the grid for Halloween themed goodies and wow there are a lot of them. You can pick up free gifts with your Plastik group tag once an hour every hour. There are hunts taking place and a whole bunch of other gifts to tuck away in your swag bag.

Chucky and his Bride

This is just a quick post today so I can share these fabulous Chucky and Chucky's Bride avatars with you. They are available from Mohna Lisa Couture for free so long as you're wearing the group tag - The group is also free to join.

On a side note for anyone that has seen my previous blog posts the avatars inside the Midnight Mania boards at Death Row Designs have been changed. You can grab the Beetlejuice inspired avatar and there is "Dementia" available for the gals.

Until next time,
Kooky.

A Moment in Time

Partay!

Featuring this month at the Nitroglobus Gallery with his exhibit "A Moment in Time" is none other than Mister Nitro Fireguard himself. He both owns the Angel labs sim and co-owns the gallery with his partner in crime, Dido Haas.

A Moment in Time is a visually stunning collection of sculptures that have been created from Nitro's real life art and in some cases the sculptures have been transported from real life pieces into mesh so that they can be displayed for all the residents of Second Life to enjoy as well.

Hey Mr DJ

As always I had a great time at the opening party which was held during this week. It was wonderful to see some familiar faces and new ones too. Not only were we celebrating the opening of Nitro's exhibit but the anniversary of Dido and Nitro's meeting a year ago. Many congratulations from me to them. I do hope it'll be the first of many more to come. They're just so cute together!

Hanging on the walls of the gallery along side Nitro's stunning sculptures are the works of no less than four other artists. There are creative master pieces from Dido Haas, Ini Inaka, Gitu Aura and PetsiKat Markova for you to feast your eyes on.

I do hope you'll pop along and take a peek if you have some time free on your hands. It really is a fantastic exhibit and so rarely have I seen one at a quaint gallery like this with so much talent and creativity bursting out of it

Until next time,
Kooky.

One, Two Freddy's coming for you..

Freddie From DrD

Three, four, better lock your door.
Five, six, grab your crucifix.

Freddie closer

Seven, eight, gonna stay up late.
Nine, ten, never sleep again.

This is the latest 'doll' release from Death Row Designs and it's another absolute cracker! For today only there is a half price store wide sale where the vendors are set to return half of your money back after purchase. You can pick up this, or any of the other complete avatars, Jaimy has been producing for just L$150 which is outstanding value.

While you're there why not check out the lucky boards and midnight mania contests? There are two more avatars up for grabs in them with the free group tag activated.

Until next time,
Kooky.

Fire Starter

I'm a fire starter, twisted fire starter!

Fire Starter

I had seen someone wearing this avatar a few of days ago when I was having a mooch about and thought it was pretty cool. A day or so later I saw it posted on one of the blogs I follow and was surprised to see it was a freebie available in the lucky chairs at XC.

Of course I decided it was something I had to add to my inventory of fun quirky things so dashed over there and waited for my letter to pop up - which it did eventually. I picked up one on my alt while I was waiting too which means I can show you both the female and male versions that can be won at the same time without having to faff about.

They are animated to look like flickering flames which produces a pretty amazing effect when dancing in the dark. I could sit and watch that quite happily for hours; but then I am very easily pleased where things like that are concerned.

Here's hoping you all have a fab weekend!
Until next time, 
Kooky.

[BG] Zombie Kitty (Mod)

Ohmah Gosh! 

Zombie kitty played with

Today when I logged in and saw the group notice from .:Static:. I knew I'd be out and shopping today. There is a brand new, in time for Halloween, zombie mod out for the Blue Galaxian Feline avatar. The only trouble I had was deciding which shade to pick!

{BG] Zombie Kitty 2

In the end it was a toss up between the pale and ashen versions for me. As you can probably tell I went with ashen after the flip of a coin.

This mod is absolutely AMAZING and comes with a fair few extras too. There is a PG version and an R version in the package - the R being a little more gory than the PG one is. In the pictures I am wearing the R version complete with dangling rigged mesh guts, stump arm and witches claw.

{BG] Zombie Kitty a

Inside the box you get all the usual body part textures, a different texture for the teeth which is something I've not seen before, two different sets of eyes, arm stumps and witch fingers for both arms/hands, textures for the clothing that comes with the avatar (knickers and a tank for girls, shorts for boys) and the gory intestine add on.

{BG] Zombie Kitty b

I love the way the texture on the hair has been made to look like part of the brain has burst out the back of the skull. This really is the kind of thing that gets my Kooky bouncer bouncing and I've already heard several "oh my goodness" " Wow..look at that" and "Oh dear" from people I've seen while wandering about today. 

I'm going to have a blast wearing this over the next couple of weeks and after that too no doubt. Nama Gearz has done it again - producing another stunning mod for this already glorious (and today gory-ous) avatar.

Until next time,
Kooky.

Free Pumpkin Head Avatars @ DrD

From the first to the last day of October there is a sim wide hunt running at the home of Death Row Designs. There are 24 prizes in total with all stores around the sim participating.

Seven of the prizes come from DrD and include exclusive mesh items, boots and four complete avatars - one of which I've yet to find. I'll be going back soon, sledge hammer in hand, to smash some more pumpkins and hopefully discover more goodies among the decoys.

Pumpkin Paige - Free Avatar DrD Sim wide Hunt

I was surprised to find two prizes squished inside one of the pumpkins and got all excited when I realised they were the pumpkin head avatars - Pumpkin Paige and Pumpkin Guy.  They're awesome fun!

What I like most about these avatars is that they come ready to be worn with our without the pumpkin attachment. Maybe if you're at a party for Halloween you might turn up as your usual human self and after the clock strikes midnight all of a sudden you've got a pumpkin for a head.

Pumpkin Guy - Free Avatar DrD Sim Wide Hunt

Or perhaps there is an axe wielding maniac on the loose who just happens to lop your head off with one swipe of his rusty old weapon. You're gonna need a replacement! As there are plenty of pumpkins around at this time of year and they're sort of head shaped why not use one? No one wants to miss a good party and the lack of a noggin just isn't a good enough excuse - especially at this time of year. I think I'd pick up a pumpkin and shove it onto the top of my body. At least then I could still enjoy the party, drink copious amounts of witches brew and forget about my real head until morning.

I might even manage dodge a hangover!
Anyhoo! Enough of my silliness.

Until next time,
Kooky.

Witchy Poo

The creator of all things Death Row Designs, Jaimy Hancroft, has been having a splurge on making complete avatars over the past few weeks. Each one of them completely unique and carefully crafted. There are vampires and pumpkin headed people, witches and clowns, handsome chaps and lovely ladies - something for everyone.

DrD Witchy Poo 
Today I'm wearing the DRDDOLL WICKED which is absolutely cracking. There are some mesh components so like with a lot of things these days you'll need a mesh enabled viewer to be able to see it properly. As well as getting everything I'm wearing in the image above you also get another couple of brooms with different animations in them.

As with all DrD products each and every part has been made by Jaimy's skilled hands.

There is some fabulous news in regard to these avatars that I'd like to share with you too. In my opinion they are very reasonably priced in the first place at just L$300 each but on top of that there are discounts available for VIP group members. There is also a deal on the clown avatars for subscribo group members where the price has been slashed down to just L$100 each and that's not all!

There are two avatars - one for the guys and one for the gals - up for slaps grabs in the Midnight Mania boards. While you're waiting to see if they get locked down why not take part in the sim wide hunt that is currently taking place? There are seven gifts in the hunt from DrD. Four of them are complete avatars which is incredibly generous.

Until next time,
Kooky.

Emo Twist

The organised chaos that is my inventory reached a point where even I couldn't find things in the hodge-podge of folders inside folders so I decided it was about time to have a clear out. It's an incredibly time consuming and tedious task as I am sure you are aware, but every now and again it's necessary as I seem to be unable to file things away neatly when I pick them up.

I spent a while trying things on, chucking things away, putting things in places where I'll be able to find them again and discovering things I had long forgotten I even had. One such thing was a shape I created years ago to use on an avatar long before Kooky had even been thought about. I put it on, curious as to whether I could find a skin that would suit it. I came across "Thyia  vampire  gothic skin" from Death row Designs which seemed like a great match for something a little more dark in nature. With Halloween soon to be upon us I decided to build a more complete look around it.

Drd, ID, BareRose, RU, Emotions mix.

The majority of things I used to create this new look, emo twist, me were already tucked away in my nice neat inventory. I used a pair of Insufferable dastard "monster" eyes that I'd picked up at a previous round of the grunge soul project. The "kare" shirt from Bare Rose that comes with a variety of tie colour options and levels of transparency. I added an old choker from [RU], "Bolted" piercings from HoD and then had to go hunting for some hair.

I'd read about a few sales going on at hair stores so decided to take a peek. I ended up at EMO-tions where there was a L$100 sale on black hair styles - perfect for this little project of mine. After mooching around for a while and trying on demos I came across "Kathrin" which tops off this look nicely.

I'm quite pleased with the overall style though the red rings around my eyes are a little disturbing!

Have a wonderful weekend.
Until next time,
Kooky.

Mannequin Madness

I thought it would be fitting to return from a blogging break with a highly quirky, typically kooky item so I'm going to share something I found on the marketplace with you all.

Mannequin Avatar

This mesh mannequin avatar from The Domineaux Effect is so well made and so out of the ordinary I just had to snap it up. It came as a big surprise to see not just one but four wood colour choices for the mere L$149 this little beauty costs. You can pick from birch - which I'm wearing - cherry, oak or old wood.

That's about it for this post, I think. A nice, simple little one to get me off and running again.

Until next time,
Kooky.
