I know it’s been a while since your faithful narrator has given you tales of epic wonder and horrific delight, but as some folks say, some things are worth the wait. There’s also a saying that goes, “Big things come in little packages.”
Some things don’t come in packages at all. Introducing, for a very limited time, SUPER HERO CTHULHU!
BOW to their terrible visage. TREMBLE at their baleful glare. HOPE that they don’t lay waste to the world in which we live! The Dork Cthulhu and Wonder’thulhu are on the rampage throughout the city, casting venomous shadows across the land, and instilling fear in the bravest heroes.
These shoulder pets are available for 50L each at the Deviled Egg Comic Con, which runs through September 30. You can get there from here.
Sometimes inspiration hits, and you end up making something that kills a few birds with a single well-aimed rock.
One day I was lamenting the lack of a decent mesh mohawk in my inventory. Yes, yes, I know I can go places and get things that might work out for whatever look I’m randomly striving for, but where’s the fun in that? Besides, with as much random weird stuff as I’ve made in the past, it was a natural progression to attempt “hair”.
Because, you know, it’s tentacles. You either love them or you hate them. In some cases, if you’re into weird Manga porn, you really love them. Whatever the case, this mohawk happened.
I’m quite proud of this thing. For one thing, it’s my first successful attempt at “hair” in Second Life. Then there’s the whole slimy and moist look achieved with materials. No self-respecting Punk should be without a good mohawk, don’t you think?
This bad boy is modify and copy, and includes a color HUD with six colors to choose from. It’s about as unisex as you can get in Second Life, but if you aren’t sure, there is a demo you can try on.
There’s recently been a rash of Old God infestations in Second Life. The Crawling Chaos, also known as Nyarlathotep, the bringer of madness and harbinger of doom, has spawned. Its offspring are agile, and have a driving need for insanity to follow in their wake.
These horrible creatures are known to sit on your shoulder and whisper words of chaos and discord into the minds of men. Even the strongest of us have fallen prey to their mindnumbing terror.
Avatar Bizarre’s lone perpetrator is fully responsible for unleashing these horrid beasts upon the unsuspecting populace.
The Nyarlathotep pets are currently available in two installments: A Head Crawler (cost 100L), and a Head Sitter and Shoulder Sitter combination (cost 200L). These guys come with a color HUD that includes nine color options. They are copy and modify, and materials enhanced to bring out their inherent sliminess.
For the more adventurous among you mortals, the Head Sitter and Shoulder Sitter will be available as separate colors (Transfer and Modify) in a gacha, come Twisted Hunt time. The cost will be 15L per play. There will be no rares, for this creature demands its minions to supplicate themselves with all colors at all times.
Do not be afraid. Do not be frightened. Be TERRIFIED!
This is a sneak peak at a new thing from Avatar Bizarre. Given how many horrifying Lovecraft-inspired avatars I’ve made lately, it was probably time for something a little softer and a little prettier.
The Chesuncook Witch Coven, or the Cult of the Skull, is a group of witches and warlocks who worship Shub-Niggurath. Ol’ Shub is one of Lovecraft’s Outer Gods, which is described as The Black Goat in the Woods with a Thousand Young. While it’s mostly a genderless being, Shub-Niggurath is often portrayed as female, and gives birth to a lot of male offspring that resemble walking trees. Her presence inspires madness and degeneration.
The Chesuncook coven meets in the deepest darkest woods of Maine, regularly calling on Shub-Niggurath for guidance. It is said their ceremonies sometimes involve descending into a dark pit full of Shoggoth.
The Chesuncook High Priestess has been materials enhanced for a luscious leather feel and a subtle iridescence on the scale pattern of the skirt. Available March 9, this gown will debut at Lovecraft’s Wake in Second Life. There are six colors, and the demo is free!
What horrors lurk in the demesnes of the Outer God? Only Nyarlathotep, himself, a fearsome vision that causes abject insanity in all who behold him. He is The Crawling Chaos. He is a thousand different forms. He walks among us as a human, a dark and stately man, who resembles an Egyptian Pharaoh. Nyarlathotep oozes amongst the terrors of the Old Ones, to bring a fetid air of disquiet to even the most stalwart adventurer.
This new avatar from Avatar Bizarre is 100% rigged mesh with a shape and an alpha. It’s Materials enhanced to give the illusion of being a glistening scaly, elephantine-skinned monstrosity, ready to consume all who oppose him. A HUD is included for color changes. You can choose from seven color variations, depending on flavor and intensity of your mad desire.
“With only a slight churning to mark its rise to the surface, the thing slid into view above the dark waters. Vast, Polyphemus-like, and loathsome, it darted like a stupendous monster of nightmares to the monolith, about which it flung its gigantic scaly arms, the while it bowed its hideous head and gave vent to certain measured sounds.” – HP Lovecraft
The holy terror moved through Innsmouth, towering over buildings, and causing the ground to quake with every footstep. People ran screaming from this oceanic terror; an elder god of Lovecraftian proportions. One glance upon its countenance could drive a man mad.
Now, Darklings, denizens of the deep, and huddled masses, the Dagon has at long last been unleashed upon the Second Life grid. At 13.5 meters tall, this monster towers over human vermin in its path. It’s available in seven colors, and materials have been applied, so it helps to have advanced lighting turned on when you’re viewing this creature. The eyes can be modified for a deeper glow, or for no glow at all. It also comes with a shape and an alpha.
If you find that your avatar won’t snap back to its original shape once the avatar has been removed, contact Sredni Eel for the free Utilitizer Undeformer. Or you can get one from any of the Petites Mesh Avatar sims.
You have been wandering the streets of the city, an unbearable sense of foreboding and terror has gripped your heart. Something is lurking just outside your peripheral vision; something that has crawled from its desert temple. Some claim it was a swarthy man, a Pharoah, who enslaves all who know him. Others claim this unnamed horror is a black-skinned avatar of the Devil. Known as the Crawling Chaos, Nyarlathotep has seeped into your mind, and you cannot escape its nefarious clutches.
Once again, LoveFest is lurking in the shadows of Second Life. Due to emerge as a festival celebrating the life and works of H.P. Lovecraft, many creators, vendors, performers, and DJs will converge on all three Lovecraft sims in Second Life in November.
Avatar Bizarre is happy to announce its sponsorship of the event (along with a few other fantastic folks). Not only will we have our usual fantastic clothing and shoulder pet wares for you to peruse and buy, but we have been coerced by the Elder Gods to engage in the building of a scene out of Lovecraft’s works.
There will be more information in the weeks to follow, including some landmarks. Don’t miss this amazing event!
Nyarlathotep would not be pleased if you missed it.
The H.P.Lovecraft Festival is in full swing right now. It’s time to embrace your inner Elder God, and play in the bay where Monsters are allegedly hiding. You’ve marveled at Cthulhu, as he shrunk himself to become one of the most popular non-breedable pets on Second Life. You may have run into an occasional Deep One avatar lurking in the swamps of Arkham. You may have danced at Miskatonic University as Arkham burned. Heck, you may even have hung out at the Saturday dances in Dunwich at the Village of Nyght from time to time.
Nyarlathotep is known as Crawling Chaos, and is a malign deity. He first appeared as a “tall, swarthy man” but later manifested as a tentacled monster. Now, he’s available as a shoulder pet for anyone into surrounding themselves with Eldritch Horrors.
