Horrorfestive 2014 For Munchflower Zaius

I open with an apology - I've been ill ill this week, stuck in bed and feeling blergh. I couldn't put off any longer sharing the news of Horrorfestive 2014. (Although I don't have the energy to come up with any stories or have edited the images - again sorry!)

Brought to you by the team behind Zombiefest and Horrorfest; this winter wonderland sim brings all the best badness your wicked heart could wish for at Chistmas.

I couldn't wait any longer as this is important. This year Horrorfestive benefits the much beloved Munchflower Zaius, who is suffering from Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome.
If you don’t know her, you may well know of her brand Nomine, a titan of alternative fashion and amazing hand drawn skins in SL for the past 10 years. Munch has very sadly had to leave SL and her store, her only source of income, whilst she battles this debilitating condition, for which there currently no cure.

You can read Munch’s story here
and find out more about Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome here

The designer's stands at Horrorfestive offer at least one item from which a percentage of the proceeds go to support Munch. Below I've tried to include the donation amounts where known. This is a personal cause, for one of our own. Please head on over, and buy what you can. Thank you.

December Dreams @ The Arcade

2 From dreams of winter she woke. Beside her as she'd slept lay the mask of Mother Earth, as the world turned and span through nothingness, receding from the Sun, the mask had gained a scrim of frost. Its colours enhanced, made magical anew by this pristine background. 3 Stretching out on her sleigh bed Madeline was glad of the warm coat in which she was so snugly wrapped. Pulling aside the curtain and looking out across the rooftops she saw that winter had indeed arrived, with fallen snow glistening on every surface. However cold, she would go out and enjoy it. She would pull on her hat, and wait for you to come out and play. 1 Arcade!!! Come to the Arcade! Gacha! Gacha! Gacha! This amazingly popular gacha event is back for December, with more winter themed goodies than you could shake a Christmas tree branch at. Take your chances on the machines, stock up with winter themed skins and hair, clothing, buildings and accessories.

Moonlight dancer

1 She lay in darkness like the night. Limelight moonbeams would caress her skin, hour after hour, show after show. Soft furs enfolded, delicate silk suspended, stronger than steel; but then, nature always was... 2 She loved the classics, would tug on any heartstring foolhardy enough to come within her reach. Glimpses through chainmail and metal mesh in the softest pink enticed, but glimpses were all any could hope for. Her stage show, all her acting under the lights, were the greatest tease. 
All who could afford to could look, none would ever be allowed to touch. 3 A little adult loveliness from +REDRUM+ 
This is from the latest addition to the cornucopia of talent - the Fetish range. Available in a range of colours, in the five usual MESH sizes. Shown here is the 'Pink' option, which is delightfully muted in tone, lending a classy edge to the metal mesh and chains!
You can check out the range here :

Hair : Magika [Hair] No - Colourpack 3 L$ 250

Eirwen's rise

1 Eirwen took the throne as the first flakes of snow formed and fell from clouds high above. The court moved with the seasons drifting through the air, shining lights in mist dew and frost. The Seelie court prized beauty above all things; in action and thought as well as appearance. She had long been known for her good deeds; her love of others had led her to intervene in the affairs of mortals, protecting and defending while frost was on the ground. Seasons and tastes changed even among the nobility of the court, and this year she was the ideal, the one all others wished to emulate, in look as well as deed. 2 The court, as fickle as they could be in their personal whims and fancies, maintained their core beliefs through the years. None could live with dishonour, and glory was a goal worth chasing. Eirwen had encountered the Unseelie before, their malevolence and trickery bringing all Sidhe into disrepute. As winter began to bite, their own court would be changing, new plans forming for disrupting and damaging, turning the world as ugly as themselves. This year it would fall to her to lead the Seelie court against them. In times past this had been left to warriors and knights, those males and females determined to prove their worth, their beauty enhanced by the blood on their blades. Not this time. She would be in winter's vanguard, falling into the chaos, balanced on each unique snowflake wit at the ready, and blade in hand. 
The throne would stand empty until victory was won. 3 Totally Top Shelf is a bi monthly themed shopping event featuring great creators in SL. This round is themed around the Winter Seelie and Unseelie court. There's items for many tastes here, from skins and clothing to furniture and rideables in a beautiful winter setting. The event runs from Dec 1st - 24th.

Beautiful pale lilac skin, a wonderful gift from Genesis Lab. This gift comes with appliers for SLink hands and feet, Lolas and PhatAzz

Tattoo : Munereia - Iced Redundancy - 35%  L$ 50

Outfit : Honey B's - .Krosis.Armor.Obsidian  L$ 220

Afternoon Of A Dragon

It was late afternoon and Uriella was quite ready for her proverbial 5 o'clock tea. Dragons had their habits, too, after all. She decided to assume her human form... those tiny wee teacups were not designed for claws, and she didn't want to break the last pieces from her mum's tea set. Uriella wrapped her long human fingers around the transparent bone china cup, and she sighed with relief. Winter was coming. She knew that... but she was fiery, ready and prepared.

The return of a Queen

4 When the Red Queen was vanquished by the jumped up pipsqueak in her blue dress and fluffy white ruffles it wasn't the end for the House of Hearts. Of course since that day, when the intruder's logic had brought down the palace like a pack of cards; rumours had circulated about her bragging across the lands. Empty words to go with her empty head. For all she thought she knew, coming from some mystical world filled with ow toe mobils and eric trickity, she had said they had a Queen of their own. Strange then, never to expect that when one Queen was removed, there would not be a successor waiting in the wings. Hidden for now of course, slowly building up her own house of cards, but there would be a time to meet the usurper, to put a stop to her lies, and her attempts to change Wonderland. That time was at hand... 5

Blood Letters

1 Droplets of blood, dried where they had fallen on the paper, or were smeared across the old fashioned typewritten letters, letters which were arriving day after day. Letters each day signed with a bloody kiss. 2 The Mantis... a serial killer locked away. Her modus operandi out there in the world again, finding people and luring them to their deaths. Clues, drip fed to the detective like blood through an IV, a sticky red trail to follow from one victim to the next. Too close, and the blades perforating the bodies she found would be dangerously close to her own flesh, too far behind... The author of these love notes had made it clear they valued intelligence and wit, she had to keep up, or lose everything. 3 Writing each letter was a joy, the delight of anticipation, imagining just what her face would look like when she saw each envelope. She had done well so far, as repulsed as she may have been by each tableau laid out so carefully for her she had kept on coming. It had been such fun, creating those scenes, the taste of each victim lingered on her tongue, on her fingers, on her... 4 Each day another clue, drawing her closer in to her web, closer to the heart of her lair. The danger was all, the darkness, the blood. It meant everything, to take everything away from someone else, to enjoy it all yourself. If her pawn could only make it, could only work out all of the clues before her, she might not have to enjoy these things alone.
