High in the Sky

Well, this is another first! First time for me blogging skyboxes and first time for the lovely Dagmar Haiku making them. Dagmar has blogged all sorts of things but this is her first venture into building. Ably egged on by Paco Pooley and Manuel Ormidale (the owners of 22769  Casual Couture and Dagmar’s best friends) Spessart was born. At the moment Spessart only exists on Marketplace but Dagmar sent me her first four skyboxes so that I could try them out and take some photos. I hope that I did them justice!

I rezzed them around me and then walked up and down inside the boxes and my impression was of Tardis like spaciousness. For the amount of prims they just seemed that much larger. Dagmar describes the design style as ‘dream grunge’ and yes, they are rather mystical in that respect. I liked them a lot. I could see these boxes being used not only as homes but also as private spaces/workshops for designers and builders of fairly small items because  the atmosphere inside the Spessart skyboxes is both tranquil and dynamic – if you can ever blend such diametrically opposed feelings! They would also be good as backgrounds for photography or even a sky studio.

Here are the sizes and the prices – fantastic value and very low prim – there’s a lot for your money. They are all copy/mod.

Spessart – Skybox I (6 Prims, 20 x 20 x 10, 10 L$)
Spessart – Skybox III (10 Prims, 20 x 20 x 10, 49 L$)
Spessart – Skybox IV (10 Prims, 20 x 20 x 8, 99 L$)
Spessart – Skybox VI (17 Prims, 20 x 20 x 10, 149 L$)

Cheers, m’dears!
