The Blasted Heath

The Blasted Heath, West of Arkham is a build by me (MiaSnow Myriam) sponsored by a grant provided by LEA (Linden Endowment for the Arts). It opened today, October 1st, 2015! Go visit!!!

The Colour Out of Space is inspired by H.P. Lovecraft’s story depicting The Blasted Heath, a region of grey desolation sprawling open to the sky. It is where an event known as the strange days occurred after a meteorite landed at the Gardner’s well.

What To Do @ The Blasted Heath:
At the Landing Point:
◕ Turn your sound up and prepare to get creeped out.
◕ Make sure to use region settings for estate time lighting.
◕ On the billboard, click the links for more H.P. Lovecraft. Look at photos and read info about him. Listen to the story or read it while you look around.
◕ Grab a free apple, but prepare for “sore disappointment, for of all that gorgeous array of specious lusciousness not one single jot [is] fit to eat. Into the fine flavour of the …apples [has] crept a stealthy bitterness and sickishness, so that even the smallest bites [induce] a lasting disgust.”
◕ Check out the LEA (Linden Endowment for the Arts) Kiosk and find more fine exhibitions!

At the Well:
◕  Trick a friend into getting trapped in the dark hole where the meteorite fell near the well. If they panic, just tell them to wait it out and the spell of the deep will release them.
◕  Past the well, follow the narrow path into the reservoir water and stargaze on the rock with a friend.
In Gardner’s Place:
◕  Pick up some dollarbies! Framed photos of H.P. Lovecraft, books, & a copy of The Arkham Post.
◕  Sit next to Nabby Gardner on the sofa, if you dare!
◕  Click the radio for a link to listen to the story on YouTube.
◕  Click the TV for a link to an H.P. Lovecraft documentary.

Making Stuff for October!

Hello! I love October. I want to bring back the heat from the Halloween when my shop was in Mirrordeep… do you remember that? I had a number of new creepy skins out, a freebie zombie skin, plus mini manias and all kinds of ways to pick up deals, freebies, and versatile items. This year, my Halloween store will be stationed in Pumpkin Town – more info on that closer to the start date, Oct. 1. I’ll also be part of Horrorfest. Some of the items above are already available, so please take a minute to check out my Marketplace shop!

Photo HUD

The scripted Photo HUD is back in store. You can visit inworld to check out the demo… it is in the doorway leading to Avatar Items. Right Here!

The price has been dropped to L$299. LOTS OF OPTIONS. The pics shown here are just a taste.

Check out the Marketplace listing for full description.

But in short, it is an item you wear. It goes on top of your screen as an HUD (Heads Up Display). It provides numerous borders & animations for your photos & machinima effects. Simple, quick, & easy to mod. The touch menu gives you options to increase/decrease width & height separately, colors, even the transparency of the border/effect.

This is the same scene, photographed using various of the HUD options.

Come Into My Parlor…

Hello! I have some news… MIASNOW mainstore was able to stretch out a bit again & play with a bit more prims. i parked a huge building with lots of room for future releases, & i’m busy getting old stuff out too. i’ve been checking prices too & making sure everything is affordable. Still some work to do, like put the male department back out. i will!

The front of the building & the entrance, to the right.

 

 

I set up 2 Halloween areas. this one is for the Home & Garden items. The there’s another setup in the Avatar Items room…

 

Also, right inside the entrance i set up a super clean, hopefully easy to manage NEWEST ITEMS area. All the areas are clearly defined now. hope shopping is fun again at MIASNOW for you! i like it much better so far myself!
