Mad Mae and the Barber

There was a barber and his wife
and she was beautiful…
a foolish barber and his wife.
She was his reason and his life…
and she was beautiful, and she was virtuous
And he was naive.

Blogging soon!

The musical Sweeney Todd was released when I was in high school (don’t do the math, please). I thought the music was fabulous, and must have worn out the grooves in my Original Broadway Cast recording. So, when I saw a picture of this barber chair as a prize in the Sinister Steampunk Hunt 3: Mysteries of the Unknown, I knew I had to have it. 🙂

Today is the final day of the SSH3, so I’m showing you a few more of my favorites from this unusual hunt. My outfit is Mad Mae by Cog & Fleur, and includes the dress, apron, and “tool belt.” There is an extra gift set of tools set out at C&F, so be sure to pick those up – I couldn’t decided between the scalpel or the bloody hammer, but I went with scalpel. This room is by Potpourri Designs, and includes the fireplace, rug, lamps, bonsai tree, and a silver music box. There’s even a ghost in the box, but she wouldn’t stand still for photos, so I put her back. This amazingly detailed barber chair and accoutrements (mirror, table, shaving items, and posters over the fireplace) is from [noctis]. Several other interesting and grisly items are included in the box, so you’re sure to have hours of fun shaving your friends… and enemies. 😉

Blogging soon!

Mad Mae comes with a notecard explaining her very sad tale of woe, so be sure to read that. It will explain why there’s a tentacle in my belt. Well, mostly. I’m not sure what the green and red splatters are, but I’m going with chemical spill, based on the test tubes hanging from my belt. My necklace is the SSH3 gift from Cake Fox Jewellery.

Blogging soon!

Here’s a shot of the outside of the “lair.” Plenty of room inside for plotting your dastardly deeds, whatever they may be. 😉

Professor Grieferschock and The Mad Alchemist

“Lulled in the countless chambers of the brain, our thoughts are linked by many a hidden chain; awake but one, and in, what myriads rise!”  ~ Alexander Pope

Blogging soon!

Why yes, I am wearing a giant potion syringe on my back. You just never know when a you’ll need to inject someone very large with a potion. Oh, and it drips, so watch out.

Blogging soon!

Serena sent me out to pick up a couple of gifts from the Sinister Steampunk Hunt 3: Mysteries of the Unknown. First is this awesome, unisex Mad Alchemist outfit by Brain Circuit Inc. It includes the hat, coat, pants (under the coat), gadget belt, and giant potion syringe (there are some smaller pieces for the ladies). My electrifying gloves are from Chaos, Panic, & Disorder, and are really quite amazing. I poked myself in the eye with them several times, but thank goodness this is SL and I’m fine. My skin is the men’s group gift from Story Leaf. Serena showed the ladies gift a few days ago. There are several scars, so I must have sliced my face with these babies a few times, too. Alchemy is not for the faint of heart.

The Sinister Steampunk Hunt 3 runs until August 31st, and all prizes are free.

Sinister and Steampunk

Looking for something “different” to do, I ventured off into the Sinister Steampunk Hunt 3: Mysteries of the Unknown. Now, I’ll admit that prior to this hunt, Steampunk itself was a mystery of the unknown to me. The idea has always fascinated me, but I have just never had the chance to see what it was all about. So… this was definitely a new experience for me, and I saw things and parts of SL that I had no idea existed. In one store, a small brain in a flying saucer followed me around. I wasn’t sure if I should be flattered or scared! But this really is a fun hunt, especially if you’re looking for some cool Steampunk stuff. 🙂

Blogging soon!

My outfit – shirt, vest, pants, boots, and hat – are the SSH3 prize from Rag Dollz Steampunk Emporium (there is an identical version for the fellas in the box). The outfit also comes with a pair of glasses, but I took them off to mess with my eyes (see below) and forgot to put them back on. And there is a ray gun strapped to my leg. A RAY GUN, how cool is that?! At least, I think it’s a ray gun. Like I said, my knowledge of Steampunk is pretty limited. Anyway… the chaise behind me is the SSH3 gift from The Vintage Touch, and it comes with several animations for singles and couples. The cabinet is from An Lema, and includes the three curio items on the left:  an antique telescope, a picture of a Steampunked kitty, and… wait for it… a LION’S HEART beating in a cage. I mean, who doesn’t need one of those? The lamp is from Nadeau Shoppe; you can make one or both of the gears spin. Finally, the picture of Princess Victoria on the wall is from Sanna Science and Art. You have a choice of several antique frames, or you can use one of your own. And the seagulls are animated. I kept expecting Princess Victoria to start talking to me a la Harry Potter, but alas, she doesn’t move or speak.

Blogging soon!

I picked up these eyes from the Midnight Mania board at Rag Dollz. They’re part of a pack of six Steampunk Oddity Eyes, and they come in “regular” and unrigged mesh so you can mix and match. I’ll admit that they were rather huge on me, so I had to pick up a resizer script and mess around with them until they looked less huge. This was as small as I could get them, but I think they look pretty good. I mean, who doesn’t need a little earth in their eyes? My little shoulder pet friend is also not a hunt gift. I actually picked him up from a BubbleHut gacha during Fantasy Faire a few months ago, and I’ve been looking for an excuse to wear him. I think we match nicely. 😉 Oh, and I didn’t get a good shot of my nails appliers, but they are only 1L on the Marketplace. You can see a picture here.

The Sinister Steampunk Hunt 3 runs until August 31st, and all prizes are free. But you’ve only got a few more days, so hurry!

Caution: Mad Scientist at Work

Warehouse 13 - Wild West Steam Engine, Nadeau Shoppe - Mad Thad's Workstation

The evil genius that is I, has put together some of the gadgets and gizmos found on the Sinister Steampunk Hunt to create a weapon that once fully operational will allow me to take over the world! (insert evil laugh here) Two of the cool gadgets I found while hunting are the Wild West Steam Engine from Warehouse 13 and Mad Thad’s Workstation, the hunt gift at Nadeau Shoppe. The workstation lights up and produces a laser beam.

The best dressed mad scientists will be wearing the Sinister Outfit found at Cosmic Steam Designs. The brown Victorian suit also includes a top hat and rose-tinted glasses. The Steamship Pilot’s Boots are the hunt gift at Ziva’s Underground Footware.

Cosmic Steam Designs - Sinister Outfit

No mad scientist outfit is complete without a few accessories. The Blood Thorn Pocket-Watch can be found in the hunt item at Amaranthus and the Poison Ring is part of the hunt gift at The Bitten Prim.

On my back is the Deconstruction Machine, one of the three backpack machines in the hunt gift from Radeon Automatic. I feel like a steam Dr. Octopus.  🙂
