Brief update and Seasons Hunt

Sorry for the lack of recent posts. I have a little project I’m working on that is taking up most of my time in SL. I’m very excited about it, and I hope to be able to post some more information about it soon.

I did take some time off to do the Seasons Hunt, and it has been a pleasant hunt experience. Very few of the hunt objects were hidden in difficult places (in fact, many of them were extremely obvious).

There was one store (name withheld) that I completely avoided because it is huge and,  in  a previous hunt, the owner(s)/management  made it extremely difficult to find their gift (which IMO ended up not being worth the time everyone had to invest to find it). There were a few others I didn’t do because I knew the gift was something I wasn’t interested in.

Overall, the quality of the items is really good on this hunt. Yes, there are some gimmicky  autumn-related things, but mostly the gifts are  wearable and usable items, nicely designed, and many qualifying for a permanent spot in your inventory.  Special kudos to Ingenue (for a very cute dress) and LISP Bazaar (for a very nice set of two easy chairs with the typical LISP attention to quality and detail). There are others that I should likely mention as well, so let me just add that if you’re thinking of doing a hunt, this is a good one to go for. The aggravation factor is low (with just a few exceptions), and the prizes are more than worth the time you’ll likely put into it. Here’s a link to the official hunt blog.

Back to the business of blogging

It’s nice to have a real avatar again, instead of a floating particle ghost. Here’s some of the backlog of finds that I wanted to share with you! This may well be one of the prettiest hunt prizes I’ve ever seen – the Seldom Blue Evangeline Golden Gown from the Iconically Sexy Summer Hunt. The Tuli Audrey skin is also from the same hunt. The hair is Truth Midori Hair in Blood, and the pose is by Glitterati.

Yes, Horatia’s hands are hidden in the skirt, but with a skirt this wide, it was unavoidable unless I used a pose that either spread the arms out wide, above, or held somewhere in the chest area! IRL, if one was wearing this dress, any time the hands were below the waist, they’d likely be hidden in the skirt.

You’ll be seeing more backgrounds like this, because I was looking for some dark Victorian-themed houses and skyboxes as well as furniture  (not necessarily easy to find; perhaps I will do a sampling over at 117prims in the near future). This skybox is called  The Victorian Room, from Noesis, and it’s available on XStreetSL for only $75L. It’s 31 prims, and the walls have a menu to switch between 6 different wallpaper textures.

ABomb featured this purple lace over black fabric dress in this week’s Humpday Madness.  The detail on this outfit is really beautiful, and it even flowed nicely as it moved.  Also featured is alaMood Dream Ice Jewelry from last weekend’s Lazy Sunday,  A Netherworld’s MoonShadow Skins – Gigli Pale /Purple from Woeful Wednesday,  DbT Valerie Black Satin Boudoir Shoes, and Clawtooth Lovely Liz Hair in Brown. Pose: NSA.

I’ve featured MangoMango‘s skins quite a bit in my blogs. While the Vamp line is  extremely pale, and therefore it’s difficult to do a lot of shading in the texture, I’ve always liked the illustrative quality of these skins.  Three of the newest Vamp Skins were on sale earlier this week for $69L each…featured here is the Jelly Vamp Skin. The hair is another one available at Truth‘s sale –  Vera in Cranberry. The lovely dress and jewelry is PP Petal Diamonds Dress (from Woeful Wednesday this week). The boots are Malfean Visions Admiral’s Stilettos. Pose by Shopaholics Anonymous.
