The Wax Museum at New Babbage

Hai Guyz,

For this week I visit New Babbage, a somewhat Steampunk-themed sim that has been around since I’ve been in SL. The sim itself is pretty large, and I didn’t feel like reviewing all of it. I have opted to instead showcase what I personally found the most interesting, a wax museum in Second Life.

Babbage has lots of Airships.

Upon Entering the building, I come across depictions of Edgar Allen Poe, H.P. Lovecraft, and Aleister Crowley.

Lovecraft

At the end of the first hall I come upon a bar and dancefloor. Quite an odd thing to have in a wax museum!!! I then notice a door off to my left, whereupon entry I am greeted by what I think is supposed to be Igor.

A bar in a wax museum, who would have though?

Igor, I presume?

 

Indeed, the chamber of Horrors contains plenty of blood and Gore!!

Some of the scenes I’ve recognized are from Frankenstein, Cthulhu, The Fly, The Time machine, and a few others that I did not recognize. All of which have a notecard that explains the scene.

I came across yet another mysterious door, this one leading me to what appears to be a secret underground passage that leads to a bakery.

I then explored the rest of Babbage and called it a day

Dreamers

12 October 2015 edit: A reader pointed out that I forgot to post the Slurl, here it is. http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/LEA24/58/47/31/?title=Dreamers

Hai Guyz,

For my second Blog post, I wish to feature a place called “Dreamers”.  While wandering aimlessly about Second Life. I came across a dozen heads carved from stone. In each head is a “dream”, accessible by clicking on some of the heads. There are about half a dozen dreams in all.

In the first dream, I came upon an abdandoned home. However it was not uninhabited, as there are plotted plants that look as though they are cared for.

In My Second Dream, I came upon a Mr.Game & Watch performing on an empty stage. Like the first dream, the landscape appeared abandoned and dilapidated, and was slowly being reclaimed by nature.

Even the chessboard is covered in weeds, the pieces look as though someone left in the middle of the game. Maybe Mr. Game & Watch likes to play with the guests?

Also it was raining hearts and lines

My third Dream is all about chains. The trees are chained, the eggs are chained. Chains everywhere. Also a tree dripping oil. Maybe the dreamer felt trapped?

The Fourth Dream is much less dour than the others so far, and took on a mechanical theme. I found this really awesome bumper car. Sadly, I couldn’t take it with me outside of the dream.

Even the chickens are mechanical

The Last dream is Nautical in nature. The Aquarium is chained, which is odd. Who would try to steal a huge Aquarium?

Anyway, This concludes my Second Blog post. I am currently looking for fun places to fly or drive my vehicles.
