Looking for something “different” to do, I ventured off into the Sinister Steampunk Hunt 3: Mysteries of the Unknown. Now, I’ll admit that prior to this hunt, Steampunk itself was a mystery of the unknown to me. The idea has always fascinated me, but I have just never had the chance to see what it was all about. So… this was definitely a new experience for me, and I saw things and parts of SL that I had no idea existed. In one store, a small brain in a flying saucer followed me around. I wasn’t sure if I should be flattered or scared! But this really is a fun hunt, especially if you’re looking for some cool Steampunk stuff. :-)
My outfit – shirt, vest, pants, boots, and hat – are the SSH3 prize from Rag Dollz Steampunk Emporium (there is an identical version for the fellas in the box). The outfit also comes with a pair of glasses, but I took them off to mess with my eyes (see below) and forgot to put them back on. And there is a ray gun strapped to my leg. A RAY GUN, how cool is that?! At least, I think it’s a ray gun. Like I said, my knowledge of Steampunk is pretty limited. Anyway… the chaise behind me is the SSH3 gift from The Vintage Touch, and it comes with several animations for singles and couples. The cabinet is from An Lema, and includes the three curio items on the left: an antique telescope, a picture of a Steampunked kitty, and… wait for it… a LION’S HEART beating in a cage. I mean, who doesn’t need one of those? The lamp is from Nadeau Shoppe; you can make one or both of the gears spin. Finally, the picture of Princess Victoria on the wall is from Sanna Science and Art. You have a choice of several antique frames, or you can use one of your own. And the seagulls are animated. I kept expecting Princess Victoria to start talking to me a la Harry Potter, but alas, she doesn’t move or speak.
I picked up these eyes from the Midnight Mania board at Rag Dollz. They’re part of a pack of six Steampunk Oddity Eyes, and they come in “regular” and unrigged mesh so you can mix and match. I’ll admit that they were rather huge on me, so I had to pick up a resizer script and mess around with them until they looked less huge. This was as small as I could get them, but I think they look pretty good. I mean, who doesn’t need a little earth in their eyes? My little shoulder pet friend is also not a hunt gift. I actually picked him up from a BubbleHut gacha during Fantasy Faire a few months ago, and I’ve been looking for an excuse to wear him. I think we match nicely. ;-) Oh, and I didn’t get a good shot of my nails appliers, but they are only 1L on the Marketplace. You can see a picture here.
The Sinister Steampunk Hunt 3 runs until August 31st, and all prizes are free. But you’ve only got a few more days, so hurry!
