Arcade Gacha Festival Sneak Peek!

I'm down with a bad case of flu, but still looking forward to The Arcade opening December 1.

That's less than two weeks! Eeek!

For my gacha machine this time, I'm going to have plates to go on your wall. I have 8 of them done, and hope to have another 7 or 8 before the Festival opens. Five of them spell out a famous saying, if you look at them just right. The others are just for fun! (I'm particularly happy with the pi plate. Did you notice that it's square? Because π r, after all.)

More when I get them all done!

Paper Plane Gacha at Livingtree

Fall winds are blowing; The perfect time to set a Paper Airplane soaring into the sky!

Come try your luck at the new Paper Airplane Gacha machine at the R(S)W Main Store and see which of 8 designs lands on your desk!

The paper planes are 100% mesh, Mod/Transfer, and 1 LI each (or link two for 1 LI.) The designs range from plain graph paper or plain ruled paper, to a misprinted Music Lover print, plans for The Arts and Crafts Plant Stand, a printed page from the PDF of my short course on Critical Thinking, a sheet of stationary that I designed, and a practice page covered with feather designs for quilting.

There's also a plane made from a plain sheet of white paper. That one is Rare, because it includes the Shading Texture that will let you make your own paper plane from any image you like! (Instructions are included.)

The mesh is the same as the one that was in the gacha machine I had at The Arcade Gacha Festival from Sept. 15 to Oct. 15 this year. That design was exclusive to The Arcade though, so I'm sorry if you missed it. These are all totally different.

Just L$50 a try, 100% Mesh, mod/transfer. Come and give it a whirl!

R(S)W SubscribOMatic

Robin has a new SubscribOMatic! So even if you don't have a group slot open, you can hear about it when she has a new product, special sale, hunt, or gacha festival.

Not only that, but you'll get at least 4 special gifts during the year, and quite possibly more than that! Right now, you can click the SubscribOMatic Kiosk at the R(S)W Main Store on Livingtree, or any of her other furniture stores, and get these lovely White Candlesticks as a welcome gift!

They're copy/mod, and there's a script that lets you light them (with or without Local Lights) blow them out, set them to Auto (so they light themselves at dusk, and extinguish themselves at dawn,) color them as a group or individually, and more.

They're mesh, so you'll need a mesh viewer, and only 3 LI for the set of three. Come take a look at  the Main Store now!

See you there!

Heartland Shelf Sculpt Kit

Robin has another sculpt kit done, and out in the stores now!

This time, it's a lovely shelf, with a heart shaped cut out and graceful curves.

The shelf is one prim, the pegs are another, and the shadow it casts on the wall is a third. You can use as many or as few pieces as you like, of course, or mix and match them with other prims!

As always with Robin's sculpt kits, there's a Maker that lets you create the shelf from your own prims with a single click. You also get five shaded textures, ready to use, for shading the shelf with or without pegs. And you get a Test Texture that lets you see what part of the texture lands on which part of the shelf, in case you'd like to make your own texture.

All the textures and sculpt maps are full perm, so you can upload them to your own computer if you so desire. (You are given permission to do that in the license agreement.)

The included examples, of the shelf with and without pegs, are mod/copy.

Full instructions included (but it's so easy to use, you probably won't need them.)

L$500, from Robin's main store in Livingtree or the SL Marketplace. Come take a look!

New Mesh Hall Table Set from Robin (Sojourner) Wood

Robin just finished a Hall Table set, all full of Meshy Goodness!

 It consists of 3 parts; the Table and Table Runner, the 3 Candle Tray, and the 7 Frame Group.

The table has turned legs, a single drawer, chestnut veneer, and is enhanced with marquetry.

On the table is a quilted runner that lets you choose from seven fabric combinations with a click. You get one for each season, Christmas, Black & White, and Flamingos (for when you want to really brighten things up.)

The table and runner are two separate pieces, so if you want, you can remove the runner, or put it on a different table. (There are textures in the Instructions so you can remove the shadow of the runner on the table, as well.)

The candles are in a black tray filled with river pebbles. If you touch the tray, you can choose to light the candles (Local Lights or Fullbright,) blow them out, set them to Auto, add or remove glow, and so on. You can also recolor all three candles at once. Touch the individual candles to recolor them one at a time. There are lots of colors to choose from; but since they are mod you can really make them any color you like!

The textures change when the candles are lit, so they appear to glow from within, like real candles. The shadow on the pebbles and tray changes as well, and the shadow they cast on the table flickers. You won't find more realistic candles anywhere in SL.

The frame group lets you show off seven pictures for just one LI! You can leave the black and white Robin Wood Original photographs, or easily replace them with your own pictures. Just drag the one you want into the frame! (A ratio key and instructions are included, in case you want to avoid distortions.)

All pieces are copy/mod, no transfer. (Scripts are copy only.) The whole set is only 5LI, when the table, runner, and candles are linked, at the size given.

Come see a demo at Robin's Main Store on Livingtree.

If you just want to cut to the chase, you can go to the SL Marketplace, and buy the Hall Table Set. Or if you prefer, you can get the Table and Runner, the 3 Candle Tray or the 7 Frame Group by themselves,.

I'll think you'll like them!

New Small People Playset!

Hi there! It's been a while, but I have a new playset for the Small People Dolls I make. It's a Castle!
Actually it's two castles, and some armor and helmets for the dolls, and a Bunny Rabbit Siege Engine. With a catapult. Great for pretending to fling the sheep from the Small People Farm Animals into the neighbor's yard. :-)
Oh, and most of the parts of this playset are mesh. (The drawbridge is a good ole cube, and opens with a satisfying clank.)
So stop by my store in the Kick the Can school building, and take a look! I've got a little setup right by the box.
Bye for now!

Robin at the Home & Garden Expo!

Robin has a booth at the Home & Garden Expo!
She's been doing a lot of Mesh Work, and has some new stuff that is totally meshy goodness. Low prim, beautifully detailed, and (for now) available only at the Expo.
Come check them out! You can play with the demos, buy individual bits, and take a look at the LI (which might surprise you.) She's still doing some sculpt work, and you'll find a couple of new quilt designs, a bench with a sparrow that's full of birdsong, and a few other goodies there as well.
And, of course, since the entire event is to benefit Relay for Life, Robin has made two new items that are exclusive to the show just for the Relay. All proceeds from the sale of those items go to the Relay, so please take a look.
The Home & Garden Expo is running from May 19th to May 28th. See you there!

New Things for Winter Campers!

Hard Knock Winter Camp 2012 is coming soon! It's time to pull out your Long Johns, and get ready to play in the snow.

Just in case you don't happen to have Long Johns, Kick the Can at Livingtree has you covered!

There are three separate packages, ranging in price from L$50 to L$200.

The first pack has Long Johns with the camp logo on them, printed in white with blue collar and cuffs. (Seen in the center in the image above.) They come with the tops tucked and untucked, and there are sets for both Boys and Girls in the pack. L$50, copy/mod.

The second has those, and also has a set that uses layers to be fully tintable! In order to use them, you have to have the ability to wear multiple clothing layers. (3 Jackets, 3 pairs of Underpants, etc.) That will depend on your viewer, of course. But if you can, then you can wear a set of plain Tintable Long Johns, Add the Logo layer, and then Add the Cuffs layer, and you can tint each layer individually! So you can have any color combination you want, and the logos will remain exactly as designed. L$100, copy/mod.

The third pack has the Long Johns from the first and second packs, and also includes Cold Weather Tattoos! They go on the tattoo layer, and allow you to get progressively redder as you stay outside longer and longer. There are four levels, from chilly (barely pink) to frozen (bright red.) You also get a set that's white, not red, so you can tint them if you have a viewer that lets you tint Tattoo Layers, and a non-red blood color. (Finally! Your Vulcan kid can get bright green cheeks from being out in the cold!) L$200, copy/mod.

All packs include "See my Breath" particle emitters, so it's obvious just how cold it is outside!

If you don't need the Long Johns, the Cold Weather Tattoos are available separately for L$150.

Come take a look! You'll also find things from Mari and Pygar, including an award-winning cork board from Mari!
