The Wacky World of Curio Obscura! June 10, 2008

Step right up ladies and gents to see the most stupendous, astonishing, extraordinary, wondrous phenomenon known only as *drum roll*… CURIO OBSCURA!!!! Ok, a little dramatic perhaps, but the tone of the place calls for a little dramz. This unusual store caters to the strange and quirky, but particularly those interested in the Steampunk subculture. What is this Steampunk you speak of crazy Bella, you ask? Well I’m not an expert but to sum it up, it’s a fantasy world in which steam power is used and set in a Victorian style era. Technology is filled with gadgets made of clockwork,copper and steam. But that’s not all together the point here; the point is that Pandora Wrigglesworth has made the coolest, most original gadgets and weirdness I have ever witnessed in Second Life®. We are talking Top hats containing a tiny old-fashion camera that follows your ACTUAL cam view that you are using, so others can see where you’re looking (WARNING: no up-skirting, you’ll be caught! PERVS, hehe). Then there is the Horseless Gown that looks like a Victorian-style skirt but is actually a vehicle! You have to go see for yourself to believe me, but this place is well worth a visit just to gawk in awe. As an extra special bonus (since I know you are all cheap-arses like your’s truly) There is an AWESOME freebie table! So what are you waiting for? Hop on your steam-powered broomstick or jump on your giant stilts and get over there! Wait, you don’t have any of those things? Well then you REALLY need to visit and get some for your own! And if you want to learn more before your visit, travel over to the Curio Obscura website and stare in amazement. Have fun!
