A portion of all proceeds will go to Wigs For Kids, an organization that helps […]

I’ve been to other types of conventions but SteamCon 2009 was my first steampunk convention. This particular steampunk convention took place locally in Seattle so it was a bit of a staycation for me.

Here I am writing from my first night at SteamCon, the Seattle steampunk convention. Tonight (Friday), I just attended Studio Foglio’s Intro to Steampunk Art panel and I am about to attend the Virtual Steamlands Salon. On Saturday, at 3pm in the Spokane room, I will be joining the panel on Steampunk Influences in Video […]

If you’ve been worried that I have retired from Second Life due to boredom or new interests, worry not. I have simply been otherwise occupied by first life. My first life day job is in video game development and, as you might guess, Thanksgiving is the biggest target release date. Our current project was started […]

To anyone who already purchased the One-Prim Swing, I apologize but I forgot to include something in the notecard. When Crap Mariner mentioned to me that the swing only seemed to work in one direction, I realized that I forgot to tell people how to make it swing in other directions. While the swing will […]

I know it has been a while since a new release at Curio Obscura but, rest assured, I have not been idle. I have, in secret, developed THREE new products which are now just waiting to be unveiled at Hair Fair Expo, the annual Second Life event showcasing brand-new hairstyles from many of the grid’s […]

This week, Curio Obscura was added to the Second Life Showcase which is awesome. We are listed under “Fashion” which, I suppose, is close enough. Curio Obscura has always been the kind of shop that is difficult to categorize. I’m just very flattered to be listed.

The results are in for the Second Life Resident Choice Awards. My congratulations to all of the great Second Life creators and locations who were selected! However, I cannot help but notice that not only was Curio Obscura not selected as the Favorite Place for Steampunk or for the Robot Revolution… but Curio Obscura was […]
