Hotpink Funchico Laptop in "Rockstar Princess" Skybox

It’s finally done. I know I took forever and a day, but I think it was worth it! This is for all the ladies out there that begged for a hotpink skybox…you definitely got your wish ๐Ÿ™‚

Hmm, where do I start? Well, this box is basically a playground for ladies (& bois) that love fun, color, & attention to detail. It’s based off of a teen bedroom that I saw in real life and decided that I had to bring it to Second Life. It’s filled with cute animations that will most certainly make you smile. I won’t go into great detail about every little feature of this box.ย  What I will do is share some pics that I had fun taking in this bedroom.ย  If you’d like a run down of what it offers, visit the SL Marketplace where you can get more details and even purchase it if you’re inclined.


If you need a place to hang out with a girlfriend, or would like a place that’s great for taking playful pics, this box is perfect for you. There are gossip and friendship animations on the window seat that are great for sharing secrets ๐Ÿ™‚

What a great closet and use of space, eh?ย  This closet would appeal to anyone with diva tendencies or who secretly wants to be a primping princess!

The zebra textured stool contains dainty vanity animations.ย  A brush on the table contains props that a young miss can hold during animations.ย  Our model in the above pic is holding a jar of face cream that looks realistic!

Theย  “Besta Bed” & “Funchico Laptop” are full of enough single animations to keep a single girl busy! There are 6 animations in the laptop, three for girls and three for guys. Try them out and discover which ones you like the best ๐Ÿ™‚

A cell phone on the desk plays a little song when touched. In addition, it gives the owner a cell phone in their inventory that they can hold during the phone animation.


And don’t worry, didn’t forget you ladies that want to snuggle with your main squeeze. The window seat has a cuddle pose but the bed most importantly has cuddle & make out animations. The bed is modify for those of you that would like your own animations within the bed.

There’s a fun feature with the Rockstar Guitar. The guitar against the wall in the box allows you to do an air guitar animation and gives the owner a guitar in their inventory when touched. The Guitar Chair not only gives you a guitar to wear during the animation, but the chair supports up to 2 additional avatars to sit around the chair and watch while another avatar plays a guitar. Touching the guitar plays a little tune as well.
If you’d like to see this skybox in world to test and play with its features, visit the -db- store. The boxes are located within vendors at each end of the store that can be rezzed for your convenience.


The Glamour Girl Skybox from DIRTY BOXES was used for promo pics at the SLingerie Blog. Thanks to blog contributor Sabella Fallen!


After seeing this skybox, a friend asked me what made me create such a nasty hole in the wall. Believe it or not, I used to role play with a guy who shall remain nameless, that told me he lived in his parents basement while playing video games and gaming in Second Life. In my mind, I always imagined him in a place like this, so I decided to create it! ๐Ÿ™‚

This box was created with the roleplayer in mind, with attention to detail. There’s lots for the user to interact with…working lights, sounds, animations for appliances and furniture…even running water and a working microwave!
I tried to be mindful of prims, but I didn’t want to be stingy with the build.


This basement is the epitome of grunge. It’s the largest build that I’ve done so far with four fully furnished rooms. The box has a realistic feel, with filthy wall and floor textures, you can almost smell the mold and feel the dankness in the air.

As great as this box is, there will always be some that don’t want the entire box, but like individual pieces from the box. With that in mind, there are sets and pieces available to buyers on the Second Life Marketplace.

There’s only so much that pictures can show and trust me, there’s much more to see. Visit the Second Life Marketplace for more pics and details about the skybox, or even make a trip in world to DIRTY BOXES to see the box in person. It is conveniently located at the front entrance of the store. Use the teleporter underneath the promo pic to transport yourself into a world of pure grunge ๐Ÿ™‚ Squeaky the Mouse says, “It’s well worth the visit!”


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. ๐Ÿ™‚

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 ๐Ÿ™‚ 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! ๐Ÿ™‚

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.ย  There’s something sweet and nostalgic about reliving your high school and college days, and having the pleasure of doing so through someone else.ย  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.ย  Being a dork, the television show “Heroes” was a favorite of mine.ย  We all remember “Claire the Cheerleader” don’t we?ย  Well, during her college years they’d often show her whining in her dorm room about some teen angst issue.ย  The DIRTY BOXESย  “Glamour Girl” and “Boi Dorm” were both modeled after her room.ย  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.ย 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 ๐Ÿ™‚ Visit DIRTY BOXES -db- in world and rez both the “Glamour Girl” and “Boi Dorm” skyboxes to see both boxes in action.

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

This motel room is actually true to life.ย  It’s one that I’ve seen before in my first life and was never able to erase it from my mind.ย  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.ย  There were some out there, but non that fit what it was that I was looking for.ย  So I created this and decided to share with the rest of the community.ย  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.ย  However, during my RPing years, grunge started influencing my taste more and more.ย  I loved the filth and how dark and grungy everything appeared.ย  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.ย  It’s crappy in a chic way with it’s bordered up windows, broken television and nasty bath that’s attached.ย  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.ย  Visit DIRTY BOXES in world to view the entire skybox up close and personal ๐Ÿ™‚
