The Gashlycrumb Tinies





About a year ago I began building a recreation of Edward Goreys "The Gashlycrumb Tinies". Using little steampunk robot children of course. I had just wanted to practice building and you can actually see my skill improve as it goes along. I sat on IBM6 and Rezzable sandbox building it for what seemed like months and it was the first and last time I tried to watch my prim count. This was mainly because its not very polite to use all the resources on a sandbox.
Shortly after I finished Gashlycrumb, KK Jewell offered her sim Arcspace as a venue to show it (with a little prompting from Bettina Tizzy I think). Edward Gorey is a favorite of mine with his offbeat cryptic humour, and if you dont know his work then I suggest you look him up. I am going to leave The Gashlycrumb Tinies out at Immersiva for the month of August should you be interested in seeing one of my early builds.


I forgot to mention that last year a celebrity of sorts came to see the show. None other than the Angel of Death (who sounds a bit like Crap Mariner). Here is the Angel of Death meeting Nevill.

wow this is fantastic, you should do a scene by scene re-enactment in 3D, as I did here with my 2D tribute video:
