Art in Second Life 2022 (83) “Pumpkins and things” by Cica Ghost

Monday, October 3rd, Cica Ghost opened her next installation, that fits to the upcoming Halloween season. She named it “Pumpkins and things“. The thought Cica provides with the landmark description is a quote from Edgar Allan Poe: “Believe nothing you hear, and only one half that you see.”

As usual with Cica’s installation you shall use shared environment. You will get reminded upon landing. You should also set advanced lighting and activate shadows from sun/moon and projectors. The environment settings are part of Cica’s art. For “Pumpkins and things” she selected an orange and glowing environment fitting to the seaon. The ground is also mostly orange. The “flowers” fit to the theme: Ghosts, spider sunflowers, spider nets and pumpkins in all forms. The island of “Pumpkins and things” has several hills and some ponds. The buildings are either “Cica-ish” or surprise, surprise pumpkins.

What else? Monsters, ghosts, spiders, “wormans”, bats , an old man and a witch, an evil balloon, two “sipirt deers” and quite some new cats! I didn’t have to search a cat this time *winks*. There are several places to dance in this Halloween atmosphere. And of course there’s also a graveyard, which is guarded by a monster.

Cica’s “Pumpkins and things” serves all common clichés about Halloween but in a funny way. There’s nothing really scary. The characters are peaceful and I did smile a lot seeing how Cica interpreted Halloween. Well done, Cica!

I enjoyed the many cats, and the old man and the witch look fatanstic! I think that the “spirit deers”, that look more like trees and are an hint to the upcoming season, are just a very creative idea.
Cica has a store in a seperate pumpkin at “Pumpkins and things” where you can buy all the new characters including the new cats.

Thank you for another great installation, Cica, it made me smile once again and distracted me. Visiting your installations is always a welcomed time-out where you can immerse yourself into another fantasy world – far way from everyday life – particular considering all the crisises in the world.
As always, don’t wait to long with your visit to “Pumpkins and things” , you never know how long it may stay – it is a temporary world. maybe Cica keeps it until Halloweem. I would appreciate that!
