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! 🙂

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.

"noTell moTel skybox"

A Grungy Motel Skybox for Second Life

It seems fitting that since this was my very first creation in skyboxes, that this should be my very first entry 🙂

This motel room is actually true to life.  It’s one that I’ve seen before in my first life and was never able to erase it from my mind.  As a Role Player in Second Life, I would wish someone would be kind enough to make a tiny little get away like this one.  There were some out there, but non that fit what it was that I was looking for.  So I created this and decided to share with the rest of the community.  I got a lot of positive feedback regarding it and decided to keep going with ideas.

When I first started SL, I was more interested in contemporary furnishings.  However, during my RPing years, grunge started influencing my taste more and more.  I loved the filth and how dark and grungy everything appeared.  It now influences a lot of my current creations with DIRTY BOXES.

In this skybox, the floors are stained, the walls damaged, and the furniture a little run-down.  It’s crappy in a chic way with it’s bordered up windows, broken television and nasty bath that’s attached.  A resident in world by the name of Jackson Sharple contacted me with the following comment:

“It’s perfect. The ideal amount of sleaze I was going for. Heh. The low amount of prims allows me to put in my own poses, as well. Just wanted to say thank you for a job well done.”

The lighting is scripted with color variations and there are male/female/couple animations in the furniture.  Visit DIRTY BOXES in world to view the entire skybox up close and personal 🙂
