SecondLife's Coffin King: Caskets R Us

We stopped dead in our tracks and had a fit of coffin when we saw this sprawling funeral emporium. The owners are gravely proud of their deadlihood and spend hours a day decomposing odes to its Gothic appeal. The CRU crew is two couples, Tiger and Elektra Noh, and owner Naughty Desoto and creative director MsTootsieDoll Lamourfou. As Elektra describes MsTootsieDoll, "she's the visual coordinator/decorator, Naughty's loving wife, and the store would not be what it is today without her :)".

Lost souls welcome!

I wouldn't make a wish on this horse :D

Plenty of atmosphere accompanies your wandering across this giant store, with the sounds of Dark Soma to accompany you on your melancholy way. Try a ride on the merry-go-round, and also look for a free gift!

A tisket, a tasket, we're going in a casket.

Love and death need not be mutually exclusive.

Whatever your eternal rest needs, Caskets R Us has it, from simple tombstones to elaborate mausoleums. These aren't just run-of-the-mill variations on white slabs: you'll find dark stone, moss-covered structures, even tombs with flames, horns, and giant skulls.

For those unfortunate souls afflicted by vendorphobia, there is a chance to haunt the grounds. Structures may be purchased where they stand in CRU's free-standing graveyard, located between the tomb-like vendor section and the haunted house, which is sprinkled with various unsettling apparati. Check out the attic for a setting reminiscent of H.P. Lovecraft.

As for racing fans, there is a CRU racing track! Right click the teleporter in front of the haunted house to warp up.
