Not so surprising, perhaps, when that home is furnished by the unique creator Cutea Benelli of Grim Bros.

Prim Perfect: Issue 37 - October 2011: Cover

Prim Perfect: Issue 37 - October 2011: Cover

Welcome to the Halloween issue of Prim Perfect—the time for ghoulies and ghosties and things that go bump in the night… and we have all those in spades!

This month we are exploring the MadPea Company, a leading and highly popular creator of games, who are putting the finishing touches to their Halloween offering—the Peatonville Mystery. You can read something about that and about the people behind the games in two articles by Beq Janus.

Beq has also been talking to our Designer of the Month, P4NDOR4 Quintessa of Pandemonium, who has achieved the rare distinction of not only designing the Peatonville mystery sim for the MadPea Company but also being one of the people behind the wonderfully spooky Darkness Falls, our Landscape of the Month, which is explored by Tricia Aferdita.

Continuing the theme of games, Ethan Westland and Tricia Aferdita have been exploring games that people play in Second Life, and after reading the article, I defy you not to want to try out one or two of these for yourselves. In fact, I’m wondering where I put my golf clubs…

I won’t be playing games in the locations featured in our special spooky stories, however! Riven Homewood, Ceejay Writer, and Tricia Aferdita have all contributed special stories for our readers—don’t miss them!

This month, we feature Cutea Benelli as our Linden Home Designer, and she has done something rather surprising (well, surprising to anyone who is not already a firm and fixed fan of the weird and wonderful world that is Grim Bros.). You can find out more by looking at the wonderful comic that Rowan Derryth and PJ Trenton have created about her special Linden Home… while Rowan has also interviewed Cutea to find out more about her amazing creations.

In Charity News, Eva Bellambi gives us an exposé of the fabulous Boobiethon! And Cain Maven explored Burn2 for us and brought back a fascinating report.

Then there’s a look at what is happening with the Designing Worlds and Metaverse Arts shows on Treet TV, and news of a very exciting new project that Prim Perfect is involved with—Happy Hunting!—a lively new show launching soon!

And there’s more news about the series of Designer Challenges, as well as the most recent bargains from Spruce Up Your Space. And our team of talented photographers, led by PJ Trenton, Judith Lefevre, Tricia Aferdita, Wildstar Beaumont, Wren Carling, and Stephen Venkman, bring you some of the most artistic eye candy from across the metaverse.

So how can I get Prim Perfect?

Prim Perfect: Issue 37 - October 2011: Halloween Comic

If you prefer to read the magazine online but not inworld, there are choices. Firstly, there’s the wonderful Calaméo system, which allows you to moves smoothly through the pages, giving you the feeling of reading a real magazine. You’ll find Issue 37 here – and please do leave a comment!

But, if you like to download your magazines to read as you commute to work, or in the bath, or wherever, you can also download a pdf of the magazine from Calameo – or print it out!.

It is available through SL Marketplace (just search on the site for Prim Perfect). This will deliver you a copy in the form of an Intellibook that you can rez and read inworld.

We also have subscribe-o-matic kiosks throughout Second Life (these are taking over from our older vendors) – so you can just click to subscribe. You’ll be sent a copy of the latest issue, and then you’ll receive your issues regularly!

Another inworld option is to buy from our inworld vendors (located at various stores). Sometimes we have had problems with these, but you can help! If you see a vendor still selling an earlier issue, contact primperfect@gmail.com, and we’ll send someone to update it.

Or you can have it delivered to you each month as an IntelliBook, by joining the Prim Perfect Readers group inworld. It costs nothing to join and, apart from delivering the magazine each month, we won’t overload you with chat or messages!
