Happy New Year... and Thank You

"Ring out, wild bells, to the wild sky, / The flying cloud, the frosty light / The year is dying in the night; / Ring out, wild bells, and let him die.
Ring out the old, ring in the new, / Ring, happy bells, across the snow: / The year is going, let him go; / Ring out the false, ring in the true."
                                                                                                        (Alfred, Lord Tennyson)

Happy New Year... and Thank You

Thank you so very much for reading Eclectic Equations. May you all have a lovely New Year.
Best wishes, seriously meant,

Santa's Littlest And Latest Helper

She had wound up the alarm clock... and she overslept. She overslept, and she missed Christmas! How could Santa distribute all the surprises without her help...? The littlest and latest elf was flapping her wings as quickly as she could. She didn't want to miss New Year's Eve, too... someone had to deliver those champagne glasses, and the good wishes, after all.
Santa's Littlest And Latest Helper
I wouldn't have ever thought that I might become a Petite in SL. Yes, I found them amazing from the very first moment they appeared, and the incredible precision and care of the creators who decided to give these charming critters dresses, hair, houses and even pets, enchanted me even more. Yet... despite all the charm, I've never owned a Petite. Until now.
The person responsible for my Petite-zation is Yuna Yuadl, a "happy bunch of pixels" and an old friend, who merrily frolicked around in SL for years, then - suddenly and to my greatest surprise - she's become a creator, and an excellent creator of Petite outfits and accessories at that. The outfit I'm showing here is her work, and I cannot properly do justice to it. All the detailing... microscopic, elaborate and amazing. My Petite has a shoulder pet, a tiny yet perfect robin, that holds an even tinier gift box in its beak, AND the gift box is decorated with holly leaves and berries! Just imagine!
... and when I realised I needed an avatar for this wee gem, I poked Alia Baroque and asked for his advice as to where to buy one. He answered he didn't have advice for me, only avatars... and promptly dumped a huge box on me, so now I'm a proud Fallen Gods Petite Royale! Yuna, Alia, thank you so very much for this experience. You're wonderful and generous friends.

Belt, bows, wreath, pixie collar with bell, fangs, robin shoulder pet, staff: part of the "Petite Holy Leaf" outfit by Ankle Biters - 750 L$ (the outfit also contains a pair of long ears with white glowdrop, a lace mask, a long skirt, a tail, a pair of wings, a special Ankle Biter HUD cam, and some tiny red and green twinkling lights, so you may combine the various items in dozens of ways).
Armbands, anklets, tail, long ears with red glowdrop, wings and eyelashes: part of the female Christmas group gift by Ankle Biters - 0 L$ and it's free to join the group.
Avatar: "Royale Petite" in Pale by Fallen Gods Inc. - 1500 L$
Hair: "Orion" in Iceberg by Wasabi Pills - 110 L$ for a colour pack of five.
Eyes: "Serial Pierce Eyes" in Beam by The Stringer Mausoleum - an old hunt gift not available any more.
Pose: "Enchanted Moon" by !Musa! - this pose was a Fantasy Faire special in 2013, but if you visit Filomena Quinnell's shop, I'm sure you'll find a similar one among her pretty and reasonably priced (30 L$) poses.

Sweet Light

It was the darkest time of the year. One could see the Sun for a few hours only, and even then the light was dim and feeble. She missed the brightness, the feeling of caressing warmth on her skin. The world was gloomy and cold now, and she had to feed on what she still possessed. The candle and the lantern... she had to hold onto them, and firmly. Her life depended on that tiny flickering light. She held out the lantern, defiant and strong, against the darkness. She was to resist, and survive.

Sweet Light

I know everybody is quite busy in RL these days (including myself...), nevertheless I’d like to remind you that the 3rd Midwinter Fair is still running until the 24th of December. If you want to relax between two RL Christmas parties, come inworld and find something pretty at the Fair... and don’t forget to pick up the amazing pile of gifts that the very, very generous designers have left for you under the Christmas tree.

The skin and the eyes are not available inworld any more, and I usually don’t tease you with such items… but I still have my stockpile of Skinthesis eyes and skins, although the shop was closed many years ago, and whenever I have one of Cane Sutter’s creations on (that are still valid, unique and more than wearable), I wish she created skins and body parts again.

Skin: Mindi „Bronzed Goddess” by Skinthesis (Cane Sutter).
Eyes: Night Dollie „Harvest” by Skinthesis (Cane Sutter).
Tattoo: “Erin” by Fallen Gods Inc. (tintable, rare) – The Midwinter Fair gacha prize, 30 L$ per play.
Hair: “Amaris” by Truth – Black and Whites pack (250 L$).
Jewellery: “Morning Star” by Finesmith – December group gift (free; it is also free to join the group).
Gown: “Eowyn” in Blue by Bite&Claw (common) – The Midwinter Fair gacha prize, 30 L$ per play.
Pauldrons and bracers: “Eowyn” Accessory Pack in Battleworn, by Bite&Claw (common) – TheMidwinter Fair gacha prize, 30 L$ per play.

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. 

Hair : [Entwined] Titania - Blacks  L$ 200
Contains two versions - normal, shown here, and one to fit around your Lolas. Five tones are possible via a HUD.
Skin : Genesis_Lab_Frozen_Skin_GIFT
Beautiful pale lilac skin, a wonderful gift from Genesis Lab. This gift comes with appliers for SLink hands and feet, Lolas and PhatAzz
Tiara : Bliensen + MaiTai - Smilla - Snowflake Tiara  L$ 199
Delicate snowflake design comes in three metallic shades, Ice shown here, box also includes Gold and Silver.
Eyes : Genesis_Lab_Frozen_eyes_Mint  - GIFT
Another wonderful gift from Genesis Lab. Mesh eyes, six colours included.
Tattoo : Munereia - Iced Redundancy - 35%  L$ 50
Lovely tattoo reminiscent of the northern lights, or ice striations on a window. Included in the pack are tattoos at four levels of intensity, 35, 50, 75 and 100% Here shown is the white version, also included is the same design in a silver metallic tone.
Outfit : Honey B's - .Krosis.Armor.Obsidian  L$ 220
This outfit blew me away at first sight. The textures and design are amazing. On opening the box - further amazement - it wasn't Mesh. I actually cant remember the last time I bought a current outfit which wasn't Mesh! (As friends who's IMs I wouldn't shut up about this in will attest.) Here, just the SL clothing layers are shown, but the box also contains appliers for just about any Mesh body part you might want to use. 
Throne : {WishBringer} Winter Whismy  L$ 150
Beautiful natural chair / throne. Five male and four female poses, all suitable for unisex and all adjustable by the menu.

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.
Afternoon Of A Dragon
The items shown here are literally last minute steals and deals - so read quickly, pick up your purse and run, otherwise you're going to lose the chance to own any of these beauties soon!

The delicate skin is a special item for  A Tattered Page event by Fallen Gods Inc. ... I know, I know, you might not be a fan of macabre items, but even if you don't want to wear a skin called "Cadaver" you should go to Selidor all the same, as Alia Baroque has decided to throw many of his creations at you for a reduced price this weekend. Read more about the Black Days at Selidor here.
The current round of the Fantasy Gacha Carnival ends on November 30th, so you still have two (short) days to try your luck on those funny tinkling machines!

Skin: "Cadaver Creature" for A Tattered Page by Fallen Gods Inc. - 990 L$.
Hair: "Mystic" V2 in Monotone (Common) by Ploom - The Fantasy Gacha Carnival, 75 L$ per play.

Have I mentioned how much I admire Elizabeth and her apparently endless patience in creating delicate and unique pieces of jewellery for you, gentle dwellers of Second Life? ... and Ode, her home sim, is such an amazing, poetic land where a new stunning view opens up around each and every corner ... shoo, why are you still here? Go and explore, be amazed and return to Ode very, very soon!

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
More from the Fantasy Gacha Carnival. This round runs until November 30th.

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.

MadPeas - Blood Letters
The first adult themed game from MadPeas - fresh instalments of blood and sex every day! A HUD driven, grid wide hunt for clues, objects, people. Each day in November has been a step further into the story of the detective, and the serial killer. Now, the end is achievable, you have until November 30th to complete each day, and reach the finale. There are prizes along the way, and if you reach the end, and solve all the puzzles, you hit the motherload of prizes!

Battles in Wonderland

1 Alice had long been told she was mad. "After all, we are all Mad here..." The Hatter's saying may as well have been the National Anthem of Wonderland, if people there could put aside their contrariness and concentrate for long enough to make such a decision. 3 That, of course, was about as likely as the caterpillar putting aside his pipe, or the dormouse staying dry. This was not to say that nothing ever changed there, no. Alice's reputation as 'Mad' had been confirmed for many by her rebellion against the Queen of hearts. Was it mad to stand up against tyranny? Alice couldn't think so. 2 It could feel like a never ending task, visiting friends and strangers; letting them know the reign of the Queen was at an end, along with all of her inexplicable rules. There would always be those not accepting of change, and then further battles would follow. If they called her mad for making a change, or mad for expecting them to change along with her she didn't mind. With her Cheshire she would walk the new Wonderland, setting minds and hearts free.

 First post of items from The Fantasy Gacha Carnival in November. The theme this month is MMORPG Battlefield, and there are, as ever, items from the wonderful designers to suit all tastes and RP styles. I've tried hard this month to stick to advice of others who play the gachas, try three times, if you didn't get the item or the colour you were after, c'est la vie. Move on. I say I tried. I didn't always succeed... Still, gachas being gachas, that just means I had some very lucky friends who got my duplicates!

Scream! Halloween Is Near!

Scream! Halloween is near, the otherworldly souls stir and whisper, ready to meet the living. Lady Death ascends the throne for a night, ruling over whatever creature in any realm. Scream, as long as you are able to scream... because silence will be even more terrifying.

Contest Entry - Scream!

Meiló Minotaur and her RL daughter CapCat Ragu are two amazingly talented women whose contribution to SL visual arts cannot be duly appreciated. Their fantastic avatars have a unique and unmistakable style, but what makes them even more unique is that - regardless of where they pop up in SL - they are free and modifiable. I'm an absolute fan of these creatures, so you can understand why I promptly scooted over to Pumpkin Town when I read the blog entry of Eupalinos Ugajin about Lady Death.
The creepy horns are a new creation by Soul (formerly De La Soul), available at The Mystic Realms Faire in the Eldertree Village sim.

Avatar: "Lady Death" by Meiló Minotaur - a free gift available at Pumpkin Town until October 31st.
Horns: "Horns of the Deep" by Soul - there are three different sets ("Proud", "Scribe" and "Warrior") available at The Mystic Realms Faire (249 L$ for a single pack with a texture and colour HUD; the fatpack costs 749 L$), so you can pick your style.
Fangs: Pulse VF, part of the vampire avatar "Xyla" that comes with your starting library in SL.
Pose: "Underwater No.5" by HelaMiyo - a free hunt gift in the main shop.

Candy is dandy, but liquor is quicker...

Tensions were rising at the candy store...
Summer was over, but Elise found it hard to let go. The blossoms in her world lingered, pink blooms still surrounded her side of the shop, the waning season's final stronghold. Customers loved the continuity of candyfloss from the flowers into the shop, where pink and white sugar mice lined up row on row on row.
Beta looked to the future, now October was here it was time to celebrate her favourite time of year. Black grasses curled around the pathways on her side of the store. Leaves has already fallen from the trees, piling up, pooling in blood red swirls. It was time to decorate for the approaching all hallows eve!
Of course, in the end, sweet harmony would reign. The seasons would progress, each would celebrate their holidays and seasons with a toast to each other, their business, and candy!

Only a few days left to grab up these goodies at the Candy Fair 2014!

Music to their ears - The Candy Fair 2014

The train had rattled and rolled through the countryside all night. Sleep had been the last thing on her mind as she stole aboard in the orange stained twilight of the city's railway depot. The click-clacking of wheels on rails had formed a pleasant beat in her mind, lulling her into sleep, resting back on her guitar case. As morning had dawned, pale fingers of light stealing through the crack in the door, she had awoken. Pushing the truck door open wide as the train slowly rounded a bend into some small town, she blinked, rubbing her eyes. It didn't help. Something was very wrong. Except for herself, the world and everything in it as far as she could see, was grey.
So far as she could tell, the town was deserted. No workers busied themselves at the station as the train did not halt, merely slowed, the driver apparently as troubled by the place as she, though lacking her curiousity. Sparks flew as wheels spun in place on the tracks, such was the haste with which the train was asked to depart. Jumping down, Lya watched the train pull away into the grey haze of distance. Turning to the town, still she saw no one, streets were empty, but the stores were open, groceries on the shelves still fresh, though as grey as their surroundings. After some time exploring she sank to the ground outside one store, leaning back against a towering grey telegraph pole to rest. Unclipping the latches on her guitar case, she lifted the unusual instrument from its niche and began to play. The soft notes strummed from the strings reverberated in the still street, tendrils of sound wove from the instrument, their vibrations shaking colour from the air. 2 As the song came to an end, sounds from buildings nearby met her ears, the creak of a swing in the playground across the street... She opened her eyes. The grey shadows, so perfectly blended with their surroundings that she had missed them entirely, regained their form, colour and voices. Clambering over a nearby taxi she scrambled up onto the roof of the market to take in a view of the town, restored to life and colour through music. 3

Moonlight magic

She would put a spell on the world.
When darkness fell in the town of New Babbage, and the majority of scholars at the institute were tucked up in their libraries, common rooms or beds, the nocturnal students were beginning their work. Many took over from their daylight colleagues, keeping the labs and lecture halls filled around the clock. Jayna had spent the twilight hours at study with her companions, ensuring the instruments were in order, whirring and ticking away. As the clock struck thirteen, and the bells began to chime they took to the streets. Perhaps tonight it would work... all of their efforts. Aligning themselves throughout the institute grounds they looked up to the stars, waiting on the movement of planets, for clouds to shift, and moonlight to shine...
1 5 They shouldn't have done it. Such was the comment murmured in lecture halls and shouted in corridors and streets. Those nocturnal students had unleashed moonlight on the town, had done it with no communication to those who dwelt in the day. Day had outranked night for hundreds of years, overwhelming numbers had sidelined the night students; the enlightenment itself was named for their victory, for their discoveries, but now... Karyne was unswayed by arguments of tradition and continuity. In the daylight she had toiled for years, developing her science, practising and experimenting. All paths had led to frustration, to a glimpse of what was possible, only for it to be snatched away. Now moonlight bathed the institute, making it hard for her scholarly companions to think, but for her, it opened the door so long locked and bolted. In this new light she could feel it, here and now, magic would begin to happen. 4

A Clockwork Spiral - The Future Is Bright

Marie4972 was feeling rusty, albeit she knew there was no oxygen in outer space... no rust could therefore consume her delicate cogwheels and shiny surfaces. Yet, she was definitely feeling rusty. Maybe because she had been orbiting Earth, a robot ejected from a spaceship, in the past five hundred years, all alone...? But she had never ever given up hope. One day they would come for her, and take her back to the family she had been serving so faithfully. Yes, they would come. Marie4972 continued watching the magnificent, bright blue planet, and the lights were reflected in her equally bright, blue eyes.
The Future is Bright
Who might have ever thought that Alia Baroque would go steampunk? Unbelievable it may seem, but it's still true: Fallen Gods Inc. offers four absolutely new and splendid avatars - Anna, Oscar, Marie, and Nicola - at the event called "A Clockwork Spiral". The complete avatars cost 1200 L$ each, but you can purchase the female and male skins (990 L$ each, the 3-piece fatpack costs 1500 L$) and the outfits (390 L$ each) separately. Please don't forget that the event is a fundraiser for the National Kidney Foundation, open until October 1st, and 50 % of the proceeds from the Anna and Oscar sales is donated to the Foundation... so, again, another noble cause to support with your precious Linden Dollars!
