Down the Chimney Hunt Part 1 – Clothing! (Updated)

11 Comments

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!

  2. OMG – how long did it take you to do that?? That was an amazingly prodigious post (and I mean that in many ways). 🙂

    I have to say that when I first saw your plus-sized avatar, I was a little “put off” coz I see that woman in the mirror everyday in RL and I’m not used to seeing her in SL. lol But, you know what? You are *gorgeous*! I just love your avatar’s curves, and she has such a pretty face. Keep up the great work! 🙂

  3. It took me about 6 or 7 hours to do the whole hunt and then about 3 hours for the photos and editing them last night. Then another 4 hours for the posting! It was exhausting, but I loved every moment of it because i just love to play dress up.

    Thank you so much for your compliments 🙂 and speaking as a RL very plus size woman too, I can understand how it could be off putting to see one in SL especially as I see the same thing in the mirror every day too.

    But I am happy that my shape allows me to reflect a realness inside SL and shows others that curvier shapes are possible and can look sexy, even if it is a world where we can be any size we want to. Im totally happy with my shape and size in SL… now, if only there were sliders in RL 🙂 lol

    *hugs*

  6. Whisper,

    this is great! I really appreciate it. 🙂 Helped me decide what to keep and that which I’d never wear. With your post, I was able to inventory as I did the hunt!

    Normally, I just dump everything into a folder, intending to open everything and sort it at a later date… yeah, never happens! This time? Already opened and sorted!

    So thank you, thank you, thank you!
