Believe it or not, I spent New Year’s Eve in bed with the flu… or something just as bad. Not the best kickoff to 2013, eh? But while I could still hold my head up, I spent some time looking for gifts in the New in 2013 Hunt. I don’t know if it was my fuzzy head or what, but I’ll admit that there were a few items I could not find. And another was so big that I could not wear it without eating more Christmas cookies and adding some Lolas! It’s a fun hunt with great prizes, and here’s a mash-up of what I did find… plus a few bonuses.
Above, I’m wearing the complete outfit, including top, pants, and sweater boots, from Shattered by Aluinn (#31). I’ve added the breezy L’Bow Flow by DRIFT (#22). Surrounding me are 4 very stylish lamps from [CIRCA] (#4), and the Fly Away decal is by Wall Candy (#1). My pose is from a set of 3 by Demise of Flight (#24).
These charming CandyApple eyes (below) are part of the gift from IKON (#23). Note: there are 2 sets of IKON eyes in 2 different locations, so keep looking until you find the other set! My Helga hair is from *Alice Project* (#15). It comes with a color-changing HUD, but let me warm you: if you’re going to change the color, read the instructions that come with the hair (notecard in the package). I didn’t (I blame my virus-addled brain), and went back to the store twice for another batch before I realized that I needed to read the instructions! I can’t emphasize this enough.
These Black Cat Leggings are from -ATTIC- (#9), and the mesh arm warmers and cowl scarf are from .::IRON CLAW::. (#11). I added an Intrinsic Tank from JANE (free / 0L) and some boots by Gos (not free). The cute bunny bookcase is from [End of Daze] (#21). My pose is another in the set from Demise of Flight (#24).
This lovely, LUMINOUS gown is the gift from [Liv-Glam] (#25); the bodice is mesh and comes in standard sizing. The mesh cubed bookcase behind me is from ChiC buildings (#17), and the table lamp waaay up high is from .:Senzafine (#3).
This stunning make-up (below) is the gift from Adore&Abhor (#13). The shimmery shadow really complements my icy blue Yue eyes from [UMEBOSHI] (#18). I added the Chantelle Gold/Ruby jewelry set, which is the Peace on Earth Hunt gift from Beloved Jewelry, and the new January gift hair from >TRUTH<, which Love blogged about here. Call me “old school,” but I do love an updo with a formal gown (plus, I just couldn’t wait to try on the hair!).
Here, I’m wearing the purple Duffle Coat from OMG! (#36, mesh, standard sizing), along with the Cool Blue jeans from 20.FIVE (#26 – ironic), and a pair of Boardwalkers from ::Ci Co.:: (#8). I added another tank from JANE, and the Silver Heart necklace and choker, which was Christmas gift from Maxi Gossamer Jewellery (0L / free to join / check notices). My pose is the last in the set from Demise of Flight (#24). The precariously stacked bookcase next to me is from [Atooly] (#12). Is that a 13?
I really need to get out more. So here I am sitting on my new beach house from ..:HC Creations:.. (#29). It’s perfect for a warm-weather getaway – in case you’re super sick of snow by now – and comes with several extra rezzable items (the flower boxes and some posters inside), as well as a little sleeping nook upstairs.
Below, you can get a better view of my MG necklace. I added these cool sunglasses from AZOURY (#19). 2013′s so bright, I gotta wear shades!
The New in 2013 Hunt ends on January 20th, so you’ve got plenty of time to find these great gifts. You’ll be looking for a blue “2013.” Please visit the official blog for hints and more information.
Belated Happy New Year to all of you – I hope your year got off to a much better start than mine did!!
