Curio Obscura

Curio Obscura
something for everyoneMy friend Hunter finds the neatest places to visit. I’ve told you how we wandered Route 8. The other day he took me to Curio Obscura, a wonderful store full of the most curious objects by Pandora Wrigglesworth. As Pandora says on her website: At Curio Obscura, you will find Steampunk, Gothic Lolita, Clockwork, Dollism, Humor, Fashion, Historical Recreation/Reinterpretation, Animation, Magique, Vehicles, and whatever else pops into my twisted imagination.

I know I can fitThe store itself is worth a visit, even if the inventory weren’t so wonderful. It reminded me of the stories of Babba Yagga, except that house was on chicken legs. This store is on, um, well, it appears to be on metallic limbs and crustacean legs. *grin* I didn’t notice the house spinning about while we were in it, but who knows? Wouldn’t surprise me in the least had we been twirling.

a bit hard on the kneesI was certainly spinning and twirling INSIDE, trying to read all the different posters: Flying topters, clockwork inside, copper stockings, clockwork mustache, flying saucer skirt, Fun Fur Jacket, the horseless gown and more. Hunter indulged himself and now has a clockwork mustache. I have the flying topter, courtesy of Hunter. Thank you SO much for the generous gift! *grin* Unfortunately, the picture of me flying in my topter hat will have to wait – technical difficulties with laptops and connections and all sorts of annoying hardware-type issues.

almost thereWhat I can show you are all the toys with which I payed while I was there. There was a demo area where I got to try the broomcycle, the flying saucer skirt, the horseless gown and the oui coupe. I was laughing so hard that my pictures are worse than usual and so is my documentation. I didn’t write down all the proper descriptions. But I think the pictures I do have tell a sufficient story and convey some of the humor and fun of Curio Obscura.

Ahuva's car and hairGood thing I have Hunter to scout out these places for me!! *grin* Not only do I have fun, get wonderful toys, but I get blog material too. *Hugs*

There's not much to say about me. I discovered SecondLife by accident, wandered in, and decided I wanted to stay. This blog was a chronicle of my adventures and misadventures in SL. It also includes stray thoughts that occur to me as a result of my time in SL. Both I and my avatar are female. We both love water and the beach and gardening and parties and hanging out with friends. Updating this after quite some time. I haven't appeared in SL in many many months (probably over a year by now) but SL has remained in my thoughts. I do miss my SL, but at least I still have contact with some of my friends from there. In the meantime.... this blog has evolved to be about my RL adventures. :) Nowhere near as risque as my SL but I do keep busy. I still like all the things listed above. I didn't have any cats in SL (only ducks and a panda) so my cats feel that they should play starring roles in my posts. :) I didn't do much eating IN SL although certainly food and drink accompanied me in RL while I roamed inworld. Cooking and baking have become more fun and interesting once I redid my kitchen. That renovation took longer and cost more than if I'd done it virtually, but I'm thrilled to have a tangible new kitchen! I hope you like food and drink as well! Thanks for reading!
