There are alot of Gridwide hunts going on at this time of year. One I decided to focus on was the Down the Chimney Hunt. I had already recieved a few review copies of things from creators and had seen pictures in the Flickr for the Hunt, and the quality had already impressed me.
Its another relatively short one, with 100 Stores taking part. I say relatively short because most Gridwide hunts seem to go on forever with over 200 – 300 stores! So anything around 100 or under I call short. It focuses on more Bohemian and Eclectic stores, which is totally my style and I have loved finding new stores and revisiting old favourites. The starting point is at Kunsthammer and the hunt runs until the 20th December.
Im going to do this review in 2 parts. The first part is going to be about the clothing and the second part is going to focus on the skyboxes and furnishings that some of the stores created.
I’ve always found in my experience that some people throw things away from hunts because they don’t know how to incorperate that wacky dress or top into an outift, so I have gone through all the clothing and I have teamed it up into outfits in the way I think things work, just to give you some idea on how to mix and match. Everything I am wearing comes from the hunt except the skin, a pair of black shoes and my white hair.
The store and number is underneath each picture but Im not telling you where things are hidden – most are pretty straightforward to find anyways!
