Mieville Midway Gacha Expo: A Tell Tale Heart


Image

Edgar Allen Poe’s short story, The Tell Tale Heart, is a dark and spooky piece of literature.  Appropriately, when I arrived at Mieville Midway’s latest event, the atmosphere was dimly lit and a heavy fog had settled over the docks.

After passing through the fish house and the gates, I found a hauntingly beautiful build with intriguing shops and delightful thoroughfares for strolling and taking in the sights.  I was fortunate enough to run across Wyvvy the Snugglefox, one of the Midway Managers, as he was putting the final touches on his shop, Lantian Flox.  Here he is, hard at work:

Of course what you really want to hear about is the shopping!  (And if you don’t, just keep scrolling, there are many pictures of the amazing vistas in this locale.)

Steampunk Today! The Adventure Begins . . .

Alas Meets Cat Reading

Hello!  Ready to go on an adventure?  Today I donned a laced corset, an elegant hat with extravagant feathers, and a long skirt that trails to the ground, to begin a trek through the steampunk sims of Second Life.  Join me!

My first stop was a stroll through the shops in the township of Mieville Wells, wherein I came across a cat with a curious reading habit.
