The Junk Shop

The season is changing...FINALLY! But not before September squeezes out a few more events and ties up some of those that are already running, like the Arcade. Shopping the Arcade for me has always been a two or three part process. Yes the initial rush is fun, but head back now and experience the pleasure of shopping leisurely without the crowd. Take a closer look at all these machines have to offer. Seven Emporium is a great example. His machines are always eclectic, containing a variety different things that really transport you in some way. This latest machine has vintage flair with apocalyptic overtones. Speaking of apocalyptic Uber is having a great round of end of the world type stuff.You can also catch these mechanical birds at TLC. Half Deer offers them up with a Mad Scientist Birdcage for the events mad science theme. 

But what about October? The most celebrated month in Second Life is going to be off the charts this year. You will want to keep an eye on the TAG! Gacha website. This event offers something completely new for Second Life gacha. This HUD based event with an incredible line up of creators is bound to entertain you. Visit Gachatopia inworld to grab a group invite for early access.

The Darkside

September is one of my favorite Arcade rounds because we always get a little taste of October here and there. Never quite enough if you ask me but this round has some real winners. The reigning kings of the darkside for the Arcade are Remarkable Oblivion and Contraption. RO is just getting started with this set called Melancholy. They have promised an expansion of sorts to be showing up in October. The Arcade pieces, hat, skirt, bracers and collar are masterful in form and texture. You can grab them up in all three colors during the month of September.

Also, tucked away among the cuteness and kids stuff, you can dig up these dark treasures. Half Deer's second machine, the next edition of Kerfuffles. Only these are what you would find grazing on the dead lawn of the Addams Family. Contraption with another set of dreary music boxes for everyone to collect. ISON steps up to the altar with a set of finely made household items. They usually retire their machines so don't let that one pass you by. Theosophy has a clever set of fortune telling machines with a Rare that gives very funny predictions. Good luck trying to get that however, the machine is very stingy with Zoltar.
