It’s a Wondeful Twisted Life – Sneak Preview of Twisted Krissmuss

Twisted-Krissmuss-2015-7

It’s that time of year again; a time of giving, and a time of receiving.  Second Life is home to a lot of shopping events these days, but there’s an event that has been around for a long time, and has evolved into something pretty special in its journey through its years.  Welcome to Twisted Krissmuss.

Twisted-Krissmuss-2015-2

Twisted Krissmuss was created during the holidays following the first Twisted Hunt.  It started off as an instore shopping event, where people could travel from store to store and buy some wonderful items put out for the event.   Each item for the event was new, transferable, and 100L.

Although the previous organizers have since gone on to greener pastures, they left the event to new organizers, who not only kept up the tradition, but made some changes so the event could be held all in one place.  Merchants can show off their wares, but a specially marked, brand new item will be available for 100L, and it will be transferable.

Twisted Krissmuss begins on December 7, and ends in the first week of January.  60 Merchants will have some wonderful items for sale, and there will be gachas galore!  But wait, there’s more!  In addition to the stuff you can buy, there will be several parties held in a special events area with live DJs, giveaways, and more.

As if that weren’t enough, there’s a beautiful sim to wander, take photos, and hang out.  There’s also an ice rink for those who love to go skating.  Skates will be available for free for folks.

I don’t know about you guys, but I love a good Winter Wonderland.

There will be more to come as the event draws near…

A Dark Christmas Story – Krampus Lauf

AVatar-Bizarre-Krampus-Lauf-IV

Beware.  Krampusnacht approaches.  We will soon have a visit from a being of the Netherworld, an unearthly, Hellish creature, shackled to his punishment, except on one fateful night during the cold Winter.

Krampus is a demon, released from Hell each year by Saint Nicholas.  He wanders the countryside as the Anti-Santa, doling out punishments to the wicked, the naughty, and unpleasant.  When Santa Claus is checking his list to see who’s been naughty or nice, he hands the list over to the Krampus, who uses his whacking stick to beat the unruly.

Those people who have been extra bad get a personal invitation from Krampus; shoved into his basket and taken home to be eaten for Christmas dinner.

If you hear the sound of bells, and the whip crack of a tightly bound bundle of sticks outside your door, you better lay low, for Krampus is nigh.

Avatar-Bizarre-Krampus-Lauf-II

Avatar Bizarre has long upheld the Krampus tradition, and faithfully spread the tale through the years by releasing something Krampus-related about this time of year to the huddled Second Life masses.

This year, Avatar Bizarre will be releasing a new Merry Krampus holiday sweater at Twisted Krissmuss, starting December 7.  It is a rigged mesh sweater, available for both male and female avatars.  It should fit most mesh bodies, provided you use the alpha HUD that comes with your mesh body of choice.  But please do try the demo first.

The other Krampus goodie appearing just in time for the holidays is a Krampus Hat.  This is a gacha item (don’t worry, no rares!) that is available in “naughty” or “nice” versions, and eight colors of each.  If you’re particularly good I may create a copy/modify version of each with a color HUD.  For now, the item is Modify/Transfer and 20L per play.  This gacha will debut at Twisted Krissmuss as well.
