Zombies Love Cutea Benelli

Cutea and I met via Putrid Gloom (Putrid is some sort of magical SL matchmaker, she has introduced me to some of my favourite SL people ever) and after discovering we both had a penchant for taxidermy and sideshow freaks, we have been fast friends ever since. I have always been a drooling fangirl of Cutea's, her creations are amazing, beautifully made and innovative and always with a very large dose of black humor. During Z-fest, Miss Benelli was always around offering to help with anything we needed, donating amazing items from her shop, and adding some of her creepily atmospheric flourishes to the event. I stalked Miss Benelli via IM and made her answer some inane questions.

Gattina: What interested you in joining zombiefest and Hot For Zombies?

Miss B: A fun occasion to create silly things that smell re
ally bad. how can you resist that?
Gattina: What was your favourite part about the event?
Miss B: As a hermit, I enjoyed getting to know other creators whose work
I had until then only secretly admired from afar. Gattina: Do you have a favourite item you have created?
Miss B: Probably bogon flux. and that's because blotto added the awesomeness.

What is your favourite item you have available for Halloween?
Miss B: I have to vainly claim it's my entire horror shoppe...and the dia de los muertos dresses at Grim Bros.

Gattina: How many new avatars have you made for Halloween?
Miss B: A whole bunch. I didn't count.
Gattina: How do you usually spend Halloween rl?
Miss B: In my country, Halloween is not traditionally celebrated. so I tend to spend it in unhalloweenish ways.

Can you give us a hint about what you will be creating for the "We wish you a scary Christmas" event?
Miss B: I have no idea. Maybe I will contribute some of my drug-abusing, prozac-deprived, blood-thirsty snowmen.

Hello all you zombies!

Whilst we are waiting for SXstreet to put the money in my paypal account so I can transfer it, I thought I would share some lovely images of the process. Please keep in mind, the amount we are donating of $1770 (!!!!!) is all thanks to the amazing content creators and DJs and bloggers and visitors to Zombiefest. You guys are all incredible and wonderful and generous. Without you, NONE of this is possible. Horrid and Putrid worked their undead little fingers to the bone to make all of this a smashing success!

First off, here is our cute lil' Zombie alt who all the money goes to, but she does not have a paypal or Xstreet account. But she is adorable, Putrid made her. See her money? She has $489,409L!

So then I took her money and sent it to me! Check out my unrezzed hair. Now I have 489,409L!

But we are not done yet. Then I went to the scariest Xstreet terminal ever. And it says you paid SlxterminalBigwig 489,409L! Nice unrezzed creepy bears in the background.

I had like 181L (LOL) in my account and I was too lazy to withdraw, so you can see the total is 489577L.

So then I had to sell the lindens to then withdraw the money, and after all this I got a message saying it can take up to two business days.

Then when the money is in my paypal I will transfer to my checking account and send the Internation Red Cross headquarters in NYC a check by registered mail and I will post all the images here.

Can you imagine? $1770! Not bad for some zombies with a piece of wood and a dream!

Before we gear up for our next fundraiser, "We Wish You A Scary Christmas", we have Putrid and Horrid's new sim openings to look forward to. Details to follow!

Thank you all again for all your hard work, generous donations, help, caring and wonderful promotion. We love you all!

Zombies Who Care!

Miss Gabby Panacek is one of our very favourite members of Hot For Zombies and has been terribly supportive of our brains! We love her dearly and would like to direct you to her latest blog post.

Zombiefest In Second Life!

Zombiefest is winding down today and it has been an amazing success. Everyone has been so generous with donations! From stores who donated items to sell for charity, to DJs, to all of the people who blogged us and flickred us, to all the wonderful people who came and visited and spent lindens and made donations, to the Nor sim for hosting our event so we could raise money for the international Red Cross. Thank you SO MUCH to everyone and I will be posting the grand total here tomorrow!
