FUNCHICO = Fun, Chic & Cool!

This is Dirty Boxes’ first new release from the “Rockstar Princess” skybox. The original laptop was hotpink to match the decor of the bedroom. These however not only have a variety of colors but new skins on the back, with all sorts of fun designs that’s sure to appeal to a variety of customers.

Each laptop has a total of 6 quality animations within (3ea. for girls & guys), with a screen that changes textures about every minute. Buyers can use the textures and pics that already come loaded in the piece, or they can add their own pics and screenshots of friends, favorite websites, etc.

Bonus Tray & Food w/Purchase

As a bonus, a “Sweets Delight” tray comes along with the piece that includes a cup of steaming coffee, a cupcake and doughnut. It’s adorable and can be placed next to your laptop for realism, on a kitchen counter, or anywhere you’d like to add a little tasty fun 🙂

With all of the colors and designs, there are a total of 40 Funchico Laptops in all! Yes, yes, we know…we were a little excessive but that only means that there are more colors and styles for you to choose from. Of course they couldn’t all be featured here in our blog, but you can check them out on the Second Life Marketplace or in world at the Dirty Boxes store. When visiting Marketplace, you can either navigate to all the styles at the bottom of the screen under ‘related items’ or you can look through the recent items uploaded to the -db- Marketplace store. In world, a holoVendor has been placed near the front entrance for your convenience. You can not only look through the laptops, but you can rez each one to examine it before purchase. If you’d like to see it in a home environment, be sure to rez the “Rockstar Princess” skybox and use the teleporter. There you can play with its animations as they were intended.

"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 🙂
