Revisit to Curio Obscura

Rendervisions Isle
I am totally swamped in RL work, so I am doubly fortunate that I received this guest post from Oura Scribe. Thank you!! Glad you like the Curio Obscura build so much! (slurl: http://slurl.com/secondlife/Rendervisions Isle/170/156/77). Thanks for filling in for me!

ballroom hatThank you to Hunter for finding this place, and to Ahuva for blogging about it. Jonah and I decided to head over and check out Curio Obscura for ourselves. Oh my! What we found was Rendervisions, a wonderful little island.

The Curio Obscura shop is everything Ahuva said and more. I think my favorite thing was the HUGE stuffed bear on the 3rd floor. I enjoyed it so much I totally forgot to take a picture. That one is something that you have to experience anyway, so go on over and experience it. It is not for the faint at heart. LOL

Oura the clockFrom the HUGE wig with its own built in ballroom, the clock with avatar hands, to the rocketship on the roof…. oh and can’t leave out the control room where you can move the “store’s” arms, this is an amazing little shop. Ohh Oh Oh Oh, I loved the blow up rubber woman avatar. Yes, that one was a good laugh, and a great avatar. I went from item to item and floor to floor laughing out loud and enjoying the unique items available.

house on fireOnce we tore ourselves away from the shop (actually we blasted off of the roof), we found ourselves in a whole island of unique and wonderful things. A very well executed build I might add. An art gallery, which I personally enjoyed looking thru, a carriage ride around the sim, and an aircraft ride over the trees, looking at the sunset.

taking offWe discovered so many interesting things and very much enjoyed this little excursion. I also discovered that my honey wants to live on a house boat. Hmmmm, time to remove the grotto and shrink the island I suppose. Good thing it’s sl and all of that is so easily done in no time. I wonder if Rendervisions will sell me a House Boat?

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*
