The Carnival Trope

jan06_009

I went to Carneval last night, staying up until 4 A.M. exploring the amazing sim. MadPea has designed so many of my favorite sims and this one is perhaps his most stunning yet. Colored in a restrained black and white palette with touches of blood red here and there, the duotone colors make it so very dramatic and allows your windlight settings to paint the scene for you. This picture was shot in the specified region wind light which gave it an eerie desaturated gloom. The spooky, abandoned amusement park is a familiar trope, but MadPea takes the familiar and gives it new life. There is a KAOS effect ride which makes me wonder if it was inspired by the Get Smart episode where Max and Agent 99 went to the KAOS Amusement Park.

I dressed in this chic coat and skirt from VoguE, though from prior experience with MadPea’s mad creations, I should perhaps have known better. If you have not enjoyed a MadPea experience, you have been missing some of the best that Second Life has to offer.  Combining rich, detailed textures and meticulous builds, MadPea creates places to play, to interact, to explore. Oddly enough, WordPress just autocorrected explore to expire – an ironic and macabre recognition of the world of MadPea.

I was going to ride the train through the park, but was derailed in the tunnel and had to find my way out. It was a spooky place with more than one unwelcome surprise. Thankfully, I found a flashlight to help me see my way out.

Did I mention unwelcome surprises? There was a surprise here that scared my cat who was supervising my explorations.

I should have paid more attention to the fortune teller, but I was too busy primping my bouffant from Vanity Hair.

Still, despite the accidents, spooks and scares, it is a place I think you should visit. Just be prepared for the unexpected. And the roller-coaster? I am saving that for another visit. I don’t want to mess up my perfect makeup from Glam Affair.
