Have a Batty October

I am giving away Battys for FREE throughout the month of October. He's a silly thing, really, but I like him. Wear him as an attachment (he won't wander away) He bobs about and flaps his wings--you can also make him talk if you wish.

Just look for the sign to the left as you enter the Carriage House:

Have a Batty Halloween!

Edit: YAY! I just found my inspiration on YouTube!!! I WUV TEH INTERNETS!!!

Picture, Not From in an Exhibition

A huge thank you to Vicerine Kamilah Hauptmann who had this done for me. I try not to indulge my vanity by having sketches done of myself or my avatar, but having one done by someone else is more than welcome :)

(Lord, not for the first time do I wish I could get my RL hair to look like that...but I can't fly in RL either!)

Oh Fine, Another Meme

What, no Girl Gadgeteer photo? Hrmph....

Your result for The Steampunk Style Test...

The Gadgeteer

You are the Gadgeteer, the embodiment of steampunk technology. Ironically, many of the things that most define your style are probably too large to easily carry about, but given the opportunity you would prefer to be seen surrounded by boiler engines, gear-driven calculators, and incredible automata. Of all the steampunk fashion styles, you place the greatest emphasis on technological accessories, and you are the most likely to create elaborate gadgets that are as much a part of your outfit as your clothes. You probably have goggles, but unlike most people you consider them to be for more than decoration. Whereas most people might look odd carrying a satchel of tools around, for you they may well be essential. Above all, you remind everyone that what sets the genre apart from Victoriana is simply the level of technology.

It tells me that I am 36% Elegant, 52% Technological, 50% Historical, 24% Adventurous and 40% Playful, which sounds about right. Possibly a tad high on the Technological, as these days I spend more time with Fuzzy Beasts than Silly Gadgets. But I do love my Silly Gadgets, too.

If you care to take the test yourself, do find it here:

Skulls About the Town

Well, I'm pleased to say that the skulls have been selling very well. It's really wonderful to hear about the creative things people have been doing with them.

Here's a couple of snapshots I received recently, the first from a Ms. Fallacy DeCuir of FDS designs who made one that emits glowing skull shaped particles, and the obligatory candle skulls:

And everyone's favourite Evil Overlord cum Mad Scientist, Dr. Obolensky, has created this little vacation retreat in Clockspire cove:

Finally, a bit of "Haunted Mansion" style fun from Cald Stine. He was kind enough to send me the haunted grave--I must say the chuckle is rather unnerving!

As always, hearing that people are having fun with my toys really makes me happy :) So if you have pictures of you and your skulls, horses, or unsafe modes of transportation, do drop me a line :)
