Cthulhu Calls

A strange fog had rolled inland at our new home some time in the night. Not the usual ocean fog but something eerie, which caused the tiny hairs along the back of my neck to raise. Oh sure, we were told all the local superstitious nonsense about squid people and disappearances, but knew that was simply tall tales to keep the strangers away. I heard a strange sound that I couldn’t even dare pronounce down at the water’s edge and I pressed against the glass of our bedroom window, trying to see what was happening down below. There appeared to be movement around the ruins on our land and as the moon shown upon the stones, I could see that the waters appeared to have overcome some of the ground during the course of the night. So, we were getting a bit of a small flood, nothing appeared to be directly affected though and besides, the sun was still hours away from rising and the fog did not appear to be going anywhere. So I decided that in the sense of no obvious danger, it could wait and we would investigate further in the morning.
Returning back to the warm comfort of my bed, I turned on my side and soon fell asleep. The tentacles reaching up from some dark deep place passed by without notice as my beloved and I slept. What would the morning bring upon waking?

LoveFest 2016- Raw Talent With A Side of Cthulhu


 

I cannot stress enough how much I’m in love with the incredible setup/design of the LoveFest 2016 event. As soon as you enter, you’re taken away to a hauntingly beautiful New England coastal town that’s filled with plenty to explore. Good luck getting in, because there were several instances in the past 24 hours where I found it packed to the brim.

There’s ample shopping with all of the merchants showcasing an event exclusive, so if you’re into the H.P. Lovecraft-era of horror and fashion, this is absolutely the event for you.

There’s a sanatorium, entertainment aboard a stunning 1920’s cruise ship and a really shady graveyard you may or may not want to explore.

The level of detail that went into the entire environment is an incredible treat. Just be forewarned: you will need and want plenty of time to be able to properly explore the entire sim, as there’s extensive shops, gachas and gems tucked away in this picturesque town that are worth the extra investigation.

I am always appreciative of being able to enjoy a glimpse of the creative processes of others, and this event was certainly no exception. Visually stunning and catering to my shopping addiction (plus an incredibly unique theme that I would love to see more of), you’ll want to make sure to take time to visit the LoveFest for yourself.

It’s open until August 21st. Make sure to check it out HERE.
