KatatOnik Easter

Another contender for the “hardest” hunt on the grid is going on right now at the Ozimals Sim.  Click the sign at the landing and get a basket to wear, then find easter eggs that rez randomly about the sim.  Click and choose touch, and they go in your basket.  Get six and you’ll be offered a prop to wear on your head, which you take to one of the participating stores to click in front of the basket and receive a prize.  The prize is random with most stores offering more than one, so you might need to get more than one prop per store to get the prize you desire.  The sim is packed and the competition is a bit fierce, but there’s LOTS of eggs once you know where to look for them.  Just be patient and you’ll start to notice patterns.  This dress from KatatOnik is not “traditional” easter fair, but I think it’s amazing, and there’s a version in pink and blue, along with another in cream and brown.  It was my favorite gift of the several I managed to earn, but there are tons of other fun things.

The skin I’m wearing is the new group gift from Filthy.  It’s on the wall, and I had to use the edit menu to click it this morning (choosing edit linked parts before I could touch it, because it was linked to everything else.  That may have been fixed by now).  I admit I was a bit stymied by the pink brows and very Easter-ish shadow, but the addition of some old event gift make ups made it work well.  I’ve got quite a collection of these makeups now and I really appreciate how they extend the usefulness of what would other wise be a bit of a novelty skin.  This one has lovely little white spots across the cheeks and the coloring is very spring time and Eastery.  I’m sure I’ll have occasion to use it just as it came for another outfit.

I Can’t Believe I Live Here

I can't believe

Sometimes, things in our virtual world absolutely take our breath away.  Getting to live here, in this villa, is like a dream come true.  I haven’t begun to do it justice with my photos, and it’s screaming out for taking the time to play with windlights to get the perfect afternoon light, but I had to hurry and show you because I’m just that excited.

Also exciting this morning is Alice Project’s new group gift.  This hair comes with a hud to change the colors and tons of other options.  It comes in multiple sizes, to fit everyone properly and it’s just adorable.  The group is not free, but Alice takes care of her groupies with regular gifts and generous events.   I’m also wearing a lip/teeth combination that’s going to fall out of the Pink Fuel group notices soon, so run and grab it.  Mochi makes the most amazing lipsticks, and this gift comes in several shades of pink, with and without the tooth option.  And Lark’s offering for Colabo88 this month is the pefectly fitted Valerie skirt and top, in a ton of wonderful spring shades.

Japan Fair 2014

Loving this sweet doll look, mostly courtesy of the vendors at the Japan Fair.   So many lovely things for a great cause.  The hair is perfect in black, but comes with a hud to change to more than a dozen other shades if you prefer.

Also shown are my new group gift.  The sweet straw flowers make these an adorable addition to your spring/summer wardrobe, and they will work with avatar or slink feet.  I think the slink feet are brilliant and having bought them, I personally hate taking them off, but I know they are a bit of an investment, so I’m not leaving anyone out!

How Big is Your Hair?

When I was a noob, Damselfly was one of the kings of the Second Life hair scene.  I owned plenty of it back in the day, but I’ll admit, when I discovered sculpted,and then mesh hair, I never looked back.  On an Easter hunt I was pleasantly surprised to see Damselfly still alive and well, and making BIG hair.  So big it takes 3 pieces to attach it all to your head!  But it moves and it’s fun, and did I mention BIG?  And there’s lots of colors… And it’s free, for the work of finding a small egg hidden on the MODA sim here. There are hunt hints, and the one for this prize involves looking for a place to wash your hands.

The Men’s department is open for a new round (and celebrating it’s second birthday) and these pants are a gift from the Pumpkin Vendor.  Look around, I found at least one other gift while there.  The jacket is the latest midnight mania prize from Poison, and my skin is part of a fatpack of skins that is the latest group gift from Modish.

Speaking of stores that have been around a while, Baby Monkey is offering free enrollment to their VIP group just for this weekend, and the VIP gift is downstairs in the gifts section (I get lost in this store, but there’s a teleporter on the ground floor that will take you right to it).  These boots are color change (as most, or all of Baby Monkey’s Products are) with 30 different options.  Baby Monkey does regular group gifts and is well worth the regular enrollment fee if you are a shoe lover, but hurry and join for free through tonight!

Lastly, Izzie made my day by putting out a second box of retired products for just $10L.  there are SO many fatpacks in this box, and so many things that can round out an outfit or layer under mesh.  You can’t see them, but I’ve got on an adorable pair of knee high socks, and the tank under the jacket is part of the layered tank set.  The original box is still available, so get both if you haven’t got it already.  Together they are a full wardrobe of well-textured, well made extras to fill in the holes in any inventory.

I know the Twisted Hunt bills itself as the most difficult one on the grid (and with good cause), but the annual RMK Bunny hunt has to be a close runner up.  You go the sim, look for smallish bunnies that are hoping around, follow them for a bit, and wait for them to pop out a ticket, which they only do once every few minutes or so, and then immediately hop away (so you can’t even just follow one.. they re-rez somewhere else and you have to find them again).  There are usually multiple people watching a particular rabbit, so you must be the first one to click on the ticket once it pops out.  And then you wear the ticket and click a book located next to the hunt poster in the participarting store, (which you often must search to find) to receive your gift.  But here’s the thing, I do it every year.  The gifts are always sweet and imaginative, the sim is lovely, and there’s just something about a challenge I can’t resist!

I got 8 tickets in all this year (out of how many, I’m not sure, but at least 18 based on the numbers on the ones I got), and I’m showing a few of them.  And the hunt runs the entire Month of March, but it took me till now to decide I *had* to do it, so you haven’t got much time.

Thursday Blog2

Actuality is having a great birthday hunt for a few more days.  You are looking for tiny little cupcakes scattered over the skydome.  Click the hunt poster for a hud that will give you some pretty good hints. I loved doing the hunt, and the prizes are all great, but my favorite thing was wandering around the house and dome.  If you are a gatcha addict like me there are gatcha prizes everywhere used to decorate this adorable house.  There’s even a box at the bottom of the dome with some discounted gatcha prizes for sale inside (and be sure and remember you are hunting for cupcakes when you get there).

I’m not sure for how much longer, but right now the Beau Sim is having a simwide hunt which also features wonderful clothing and accessory items.  Here you are looking for cameras scattered all over the sim.  The jeans on the left are a sponsor gift found inside of Club 108 Mainstreet for members of their inworld group.  The group is private and not open for joining, but I received a join offer when I landed at the club, so be sure and take that.   I’m also showing a color change handbag I’ll be releasing soon.  There will be a gift in the store to go along with the release!

Lastly, don’t miss out on the gift ARGRACE is offering for joining their subscribo group.  This adorable pixxie hair comes in tons of colors, and there’s a men’s version in the package too!
