So, do you like it?

I’m giving this homeless box away as a promotional gift, hoping it will bring more attention to -db- 🙂 Yes, again with the grunge, I know, but it’s what I’m feeling right now.

I looked at other cardboard boxes for the homeless in Second Life before making this one, and what I noticed was that no one really made anything that you’d actually -want- to hang out in. My goal was to make something affordable, cute enough for girls but manly enough for guys, and definitely something that could be used in the Role Playing community.

It comes with a grungy mattress with unisex poses

a candle to light your way during the darkest hours that actually gives off light and that you can turn on/off

…and a little mouse that squeaks when you touch him. Hope you guys enjoy 🙂

So as I’ve said before, often times I create things based on what I’ve seen in my first life. This classroom was a memory of my third grade class! It then makes it a little humorous that I added a bit of naughtiness to the decor. 🙂

The classroom has a health theme with posters on the wall dealing in matters such as nutrition, bullies, and of course, sex. Some of the wall art definitely makes one chuckle at it’s take on teen sexuality but believe it or not, some of it is actually educational. I could have made it even more risque than it already is, but for me, it wasn’t about complete and utter sleaze as we often see in Second Life. I wanted it to be tasteful but still fun and entertaining. It’s made in a way that allows the buyer to add or delete to the entire theme as they see fit. Posters can be removed, and chalk boards can be made blank so that users can make their own theme if they’d like.

Have you ever been in a real life class room setting and seen some of the ceiling lights that have been blown out long ago? Well this room has that same feel. If you glance up at the ceiling, you’ll notice how some lights shine bright and others are completely non-existent.

The lights also have a color changing menu that allows you to select the color of the lighting you’ll use. So if you’re in a teaching mode, you can select a normal soft tone, or if you’re in a romantic mood, change it to a racy red if you’re feeling daring.

The student desks have male, female and unisex animations to give the user some variety. The teacher’s desk is basic, traditional, with an apple thrown in for good measure 🙂 You can either sit on or at the desk, or even lie on it if you are so inclined.

In all, the skybox is playful, definitely affordable, and can be used for an array of things. Check it out in world at DIRTY BOXES. Be sure to rez the “Health Class” skybox from one of our vendors and use the transporter nearby to teleport to it. Easy as 1, 2, 3! 🙂

This table is from the “Glamour Girl” skybox collection and personally a favorite of mine. Initially, I wasn’t going to sell this piece separately from the skybox, but later on decided otherwise. It’s a simple design, yet has so much to offer. It’s perfect for the girl that likes to stare in the mirror for hours and has lovely feminine animations to compliment it. The table has props inside that a girl can hold while performing each animation. If you look closely, there are naughty little references on certain products that are included. For example, the face cream jar that girls hold while applying it is named “White Honey” 😮 for those that like to be daring!

The tissue box on the table is named “Sticky Fingers” for girls (or boys!) that have little accidents 🙂

The makeup on the table is well made and allows the buyer to change the color with a simple touch. Little details are included to give the table an even more ‘girly’ feel with the single stemmed rose in a vase and the “Second Style” Magazine (which has actually be around for awhile). Shadows are included with the build to add realism. Overall, it’s a table that any girl shouldn’t be caught  without and can even be used as a lovely prop for girls in the fashion world, or ones that just want to be pretty 🙂

There’s a trend picking up in the Role Playing community for High School and College role play in Second Life and I can definitely understand why.  There’s something sweet and nostalgic about reliving your high school and college days, and having the pleasure of doing so through someone else.  Your days can be filled with parties, hot co-eds, and decadence…all with NO consequence.

With that in mind, I decided to create a couple of dorm rooms for students, a male and female version.  Being a dork, the television show “Heroes” was a favorite of mine.  We all remember “Claire the Cheerleader” don’t we?  Well, during her college years they’d often show her whining in her dorm room about some teen angst issue.  The DIRTY BOXES  “Glamour Girl” and “Boi Dorm” were both modeled after her room.  The decorations aren’t the same of course, but it’s where I got my inspiration.

The “Glamour Girl(GG) Dorm” is extremely girly with its eye-catching color combinations that really grab a girl’s attention. It isn’t just a room, but was created to allow the user to hang-out with their friends. There’s a table and rug included where at least five can sit around, eat and chat with one another. Beds are animated for singles or for couples when they want to get close. The best feature of the room just may be the GG Vanity Table. It really allows a girl to interact with its feminine animations. There’s even makeup on the table that changes colors when touched. What girl doesn’t like to primp in front of the mirror before a hot date? It’s a lovely addition for not only Role Players, but anyone who likes to play.

The “Boi Dorm” is the male version dorm and is the complete opposite of the GG Dorm. It’s semi-grunge with messy floors, papers scattered all about, and dirty clothes left here and there. The color of the room is a traditional blue with posters and wall art that definitely reflect the male persona.

So whether you’re a Role Player or a resident looking for something fun, Both rooms are filled with animations and allow the user to fully interact. It’s a must see 🙂 Visit DIRTY BOXES -db- in world and rez both the “Glamour Girl” and “Boi Dorm” skyboxes to see both boxes in action.
