Weaving Spells at RMK

This month, RMK is hosting a fantastic halloween event that provides games and chances at winning fantabulous prizes! Senzafine was accepted to take part in this annual event and I’m happy to show what my dark little mind came up with! First is the prize. In order to get this, you must play games and win coins. Once you win 10 coins by doing these activities, you can spend them at the Dream Gacha.. for a chance to win one of many prizes provided by many designers. Because this event and the main website is primarily in Japanese, I would like to thank Allegory Malaprop of Schaudenfreude (a fellow designer at the event) for providing a guide in English on how to go about playing the games. Links will be provided at the end of this post. The Dream Gacha prize from Senzafine is a spellbook that you can not only hold (it has a pose!) you can also click it to cast your first spell! (ooo sounds)

We also have a new product debuting at the RMK Market at ground-level of the sim. The Willow armwarmers were made to be a perfect autumn compliment to the Berenice sleeveless dresses (as seen on the ad). They are also elegant enough to pair up with many other outfits as our bloggers and customers have done. Have fun with them and know that there are more colors to come soon!

September Releases

Other than the ongoing Seelie Court event, I’ve also had a few other releases that sadly I was unable to post about due to RL craziness. We <3 Role-Play was one of the more challenging rounds for me as I wanted to put as much detail into this as possible to make it feel more than what its polygons claimed it was.

Texturing, my friends, is really important to game companies. This proves true especially in MMO’s. New content can be challenging for frequent releases, so many times they use the same models and geometry and spin it a different way.

I want to bring that same workflow into SL and I know of a few other designers that do the same. The dress I featured this round, had a lot of details in texture. When textured differently it will be like a whole different dress, even though the model shape is the same. The first texturing of this dress though, I went as far out as I could on details. Enough talk, on to Aravereth.. the lovely court gown!

The next release was for A Clockwork Spiral. Many of you in-world know how wildly successful it was due both to the build as well as everything the merchants were offering. We raised so much more than last year for the National Kidney Foundation.. and we are talking like, numbers that were creeping in to Cursed’s most successful event: World Goth Fair.

I released an officer’s jacket for women that dipped both into Steampunk as well as Dieselpunk, though my aim was more for the latter. Echelon is a new series I want to explore further but we shall start with the ladies first. This one comes in 8 colors, all reminiscent of military life in earlier days. There was a special color set which donated 100% and a small percentage of all other sales at the event both to benefit the NKF. Onwards to the ad image!

Return of Fae Realms..

I am so excited to share this news with you. As some of you may know, I’ve had discussions with fellow oldbies about how much I missed the exploration factor of a shop. This is something that’s been slowly fading away from SL as people move on. Phedre Rossini of Southpaw wants to bring the feels back with a new event managed jointly by her staff and Sohma Dix of Paper Moon. This event has been going on for 2 months and a new round is just around the corner.

It’s been a very busy past two months RL that I was unable to update everyone here on the releases. So far, we have had 2 different types of releases at this new event. The releases are now out at the store and I hope that each of you will enjoy them!

The first release was for round one “Welcome to Faerie” I was happy to provide a unisex offering and created a full color set for the “Mirdain” Elvensmith tunics. There are now 8 colors available at the main store and even the original colors were re-worked so they are much more vibrant and have a better tactile visual!

Mirdain Elvensmith Tunic

For round two “The Shining Ones” we celebrated the classic elves. Being a Tolkien nut, however.. I veered from the classic definition of an elf and went with the elves of Middle Earth. For this, another tunic set was created called “Randir” meaning Wanderer/Pilgrim. It’s meant to evoke that wanderlust in us all.. so the bottoms are slightly dingy with dust and the tunic itself feels more travel-worn than usual. It comes in a set of 8 colors and is also available in both men’s and women’s.

Visit the In-World Store to find both of these product offerings now! Men’s products are located to the right side of the entrance. For more information on the event, visit the Isle of Myrth Website.
