InnFest 2019

 

This years celebration – InnFest 2019 and Lovecraft’s 129th Birthday are coming up soon. We would also like to announce the introduction of a new website with our own domain name as well:  http://slovecraft.com

Visit Innsmouth, HP Lovecraft Tribute – early 1930s Massachusetts @ http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Innsmouth/17/34/1201

 

 

Just a short history of how it all came together!

The Innsmouth region was inspired by the writings of the horror fiction writer Howard Phillips (H.P.)  Lovecraft. He is considered the “Grandfather of Cosmic Horror and Weird Fiction”, inspiring literally all horror, as well as many fantasy and science, fiction authors during and since his time. The Shadows over Innsmouth, written in 1931, is what this great recion was modeled after. A work of the heart, Innsmouth in Second Life was originally founded and created by Darmin Darkes and her team. The region was actually “born” in Second Life on August 20th, 2009, HP Lovecraft’s birthday, making this Innsmouth’s 10th Anniversary in Second Life. This year there is going to be a huge celebration.

The sim’s current owner, Arik Metzger (AriktheRed), had founded the Lovecraft Festivals of Second Life (LoveFest) in 2012. Upon hearing of that Innsmouth;s founder/owner was facing giving up the region in 2015, Arik launched the “Save Innsmouth!” fundraiser campaign.

If you want a more in depth story check out last month’s issue of Rez Magazine.

New to the Lovecraft Country regions, the Miskatonic University and “Arkham” area will be the landing point for the event! During the event we may see the Miskatonic Cheer Squad giving us greeting and cheers through the week!

Live entertainers will also grace the party with such names including, but not limited to, the wonderful sounds of Rosedrop Rust, Larree Quixote, Wald Schridde and Vampink Cuddihy. There will be movies you won’t want to miss, shown at Innsmouth’s famous “Arkham Theater”, managed by and courtesy of Thisbe Blackadder (also known for her work with the renowned MST3K Theater in SL).

Except for gacha products.
Eclectica creates jewelery, shoes, glasses, gloves, feathers, furs, hats, accessories.

Fingers and toes.

First pic I’m wearing;
Clemmm – Igno Pin /// Decay Filth
3 additional pins available in;

I took a copy of the decay filth pin and positioned it to the top of the gown. It originally attaches to the neck.

MadCatCreations Boutique also has an exclusive red floral gown and black gown at Lovefest 2018.

Firelight – Michelle Gen2 Fatpack
Featured at Lovefest 2018
In this fatpack, you’ll receive rigged and unrigged hairs. 7 hair texture huds and a color wheel tint hud
black and white, blonds, browns, darks, essentials, mega, red. Each hair texture hud comes with two hair effects; Rich/ Full and Wispy. Wispy shows individual hair strands with a more natural look. Rich/ Full gives the hair a plush full set of hair. It doesn’t have alpha issues. Wispy may conflict with clothing that has alpha in it as well as standing against an alpha background such as trees, plants, and so forth. Firelight also has another featured hair and an exclusive hair. You can view the exclusive hair in my Blogspot blog post covering the Lovefest 2018 event.
Firelight has an entertaining area in her store booth at the event. Have a seat in the salon chair next to a client whose head has a hatchet sunk in her head, dripping with blood. Perfect to take a picture as a great memory at Lovecraft Festival 2018!

Undertied -Anchor-skull-Necklace
Medium and Long lengths included with a texture hud. Texture hud allows you to texture the skull, with clean and bloody versions. Choose from dark solid or crystal colored eyes. Skull colors from dark metal, dark metal bloody, and light metal.

2nd and 5th pic I’m wearing;
Pixelancer ~ LF18 T-Shirt for Woman ~ Purple ~ Rigged Mesh L
5 fitmesh and 5 standard mesh sizes
Only wear standard mesh if you wear maitreya or other mesh bodies like belleza, slink etc.
The old fitmesh that Pixelancer is using is not the same fitmesh that is rigged specifically to mesh bodies. I believe this fitmesh is designed for classic avatars. You’ll need to do some alpha hiding but not as much as you would have to do with the fitmesh.
There are also matching purple baseball caps as well. Additional souvenir shirts and caps also come in grey. Alpha for shirt is provided for classic avatars.
Pixelancer has a hunt item in the story quest that begins in Arkham Sanitarium
Follow the red arrow to the tracking beam after landing at the beginning to be led directly to the start of the hunt at the Sanitarium.
Look for slimy green star shaped tentacle monsters with brown eyeballs to grab your prize from Pixelancer and other Lovefest designers.
You can view Pixelancer’s Eyes of Azaroth hunt item in the 3rd pic. It has copy permissions.
You can see what the hunt object looks like in the 5th pic.

Aznana’s Aberrant Accouterments: Collect Call from Cthulhu

Collect Call from Cthulhu

She had taken the position at the Sanitorium believing that she would be working in the library. She had just finished her training at Arkham University and looked forward to assisting the doctors in their research. Instead, she found herself with a few dozen tattered volumes of questionable origin and spent her days as little more than a glorified receptionist. She registered arriving patients, took a brief history and ushered them through the doors to the attendants in the exam rooms.
The incoming patients seemed to have a common complaint. They heard scuttering sounds and saw movements out of the corners of their eyes. Many of them dreamt or imagined that worms or arthropods were moving through their walls or under the ground where they walked. She was sure her old professors would say the populace was suffering from mass hysteria. She paid the stories no mind… until the night that she heard it.
She felt herself being drawn inexorably out into the foggy night. She walked down the steps from the Sanitorium and between the buildings, following the trolley tracks till she saw broken pavement and something odd on the sidewalk.
As she knelt to examine it, she found herself caught up in entwining tendrils. She watched as multilegged creatures pushed up through the opening in the sidewalk. She waited as the sky turned to a mass of writhing clouds. The brooch at her collar started to move and she realized that Cthulhu was not in a book, but in the sky above LoveFest.

Altered Reality

 I had come home from the fair to find some changes had occured in our home. It looked like our daughter, Moony had moved in with all the tentacles on the loose. But, the most disturbing thing was the creatures, yes…creatures inhabiting the bedroom! Especially one very big fat ummm thing..on the bed. I stood there, wondering what to do about this when I heard a loud sound from the bathroom, hurtring in there I found even more tentacles and some very eerie looking furniture.  What was happening?!! Deciding to consult my library for a clue, I made my way downstairs to the study, only..the study appeared to look more like a captains room on a ship, was that a shark that just swam past my window?!! Oh my head, was I hallucinating, perhaps I had some strange form of dementia. I better make an appointment to be seen and soon.

One Republic – Secrets

“Tell me what you want to hear
Something that will light those ears
Sick of all the insincere
I’m gonna give all my secrets away
This time, don’t need another perfect lie
Don’t care if critics ever jump in line
I’m gonna give all my secrets away”
