Lovecraft Wake – The Chesuncook High Priestess

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!

Oh the HORROR (of Nyarlathotep)

AB-Avatar-Nyarlathotep

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.

AB-Nyarlathotep-Avatar-Blood

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.

Do not be alarmed.  Be very, very frightened.
