Eternal Winter

Winter

It’s been quite a while since I’ve done a full hunt, but when I saw some of the previews for The Eternal Hunt, I just had to try! The Eternal Hunt is a stamp hunt, meaning you have to wear a hud and follow the teleports to each location and find the hunt object. For this hunt, you’ll be looking for a glowing blue infinity sign. The hud also gives a hint at each location, which is very helpful. Once you’ve visited each location, found the source of infinity, you’ll be teleported to a gift room with about 20 or so FREE gifts from the participating stores. If it’s been a while since you explored Second Life, a hunt like this is a great way to discover new stores, and to check out what’s happening at stores you know. You must do the hunt in order, and you must find the hidden infinity at each location to gain access to the prize room. This hunt ends November 21, so don’t wait, bring a friend and have some fun!

I have to admit, the gift I was most interested in is this stunning fantasy skin from Fallen Gods. I was immediately in love with the ethereal look of this skin. Fallen Gods also happens to be the start location for The Eternal Hunt, you can pick up the hunt HUD there and start your journey to find the source of infinity at each location. Once you’ve reached the end prize room, this skin called “Sidera Starborn” from Fallen Gods is one of the several FREE gifts. This incredibly generous gift includes a full skin set for both men and women. The set includes the system skin in a full version and a PG version, and appliers for just about everything. There is an applier for Slink body, Slink Hands & Feet, as well as a Slink Nail applier so you can perfectly match your nails to this beautiful skin. Also included are appliers for TMP head and body, Omega compatible bodies and heads, Loud Mouth, the Soul Uni Ear, and the Soul Mer Ear.

Another of my favorites from the hunt is the FREE gift from EMO-tions. This gorgeous hair includes a color/size change hud, and these incredibly detailed horns. The horns have a few color change options within the hair hud as well. You can also wear the hairstyle without the horns all together. I really like that this style is pulled up and away from the face, and is long and full down the back. The style is called Love War, which I think suits it well. The color change hud includes shades of black and white, including some silver/grey tones in the middle and a few “faded” options as well. I thought the silver fade option went really well with the skin from Fallen Gods, but honestly all of the colors are pretty.

Next, I think these earrings from OXI are so versatile. They are also a FREE Eternal Hunt prize. They include a texture change hud with a few color options for the gems, and the metal parts of the earrings. I could see these being worn as part of a fantasy look like this one, or something modern and urban. Not to mention that these great geometric shapes are so in right now. I love them.

I picked one last gift to show  from the slew of FREE Eternal Hunt gifts, and it’s this beautifully unique art statue from Balderdash. This “Moonbranch” sculpture has an otherworldly magenta glow that seems to make the hanging crystals shimmer and shine. It makes me think of witchcraft and alchemy. I thought it would be really beautiful standing in a garden, or as part of a fantasy setting of some kind.

Entice Me With Geometry

Math has never been my thing. But this week, Entice has made geometry sexy. Let me show you how to find your inner mathematician…..

Entice Me With Geometry 1

I’m definitely not the algebra queen. But the gifts at Entice right now focus on Geometric shapes. So that became the focus of my wardrobe for the week, and the results were an equation of both equal drama and flair.

As seen above, the Entice Now and Forever Dress in Stars (mesh in all the standard sizes – plus a color change hud for 3 color options) made a great starting point for my first look. The group is FREE to join and this gift was also FREE making it a no brainer in the math department when I added up my savings. You will have to pay the vendor 1L to get the gift, but it immediately refunds your 1L back to you.

Entice Me With Geometry 2

And as if it wasn’t enough for Entice to make me a star, they are also giving out this fabulous Dress called Aztec. It too comes in all the standard mesh sizes and with a color change hud with three color options for great versatility. Again, I loved the geometric patterns which made it dramatic… add in the fact that it has a sequined look (without the dreaded bling affect) and it works great for a fantastic evening cocktail or party dress, yet also remains casual enough for every day wear. I was seriously impressed!

Like the Now and Forever Stars Dress, the Aztec Dress is a FREE Group Gift and the Entice Group is FREE to join, adding up to a nice no cost gift for your wardrobe. Again, you do have to pay the vendor 1L to get the gift, but your 1L will be refunded immediately. Definitely worth it!

Entice Me With Geometry 5

To add to my looks (pun intended) I needed a few accessories. I found a few deals here and there  (highlighted in the pictures above) that you won’t want to miss out on.

My Slink nail appliers (called Frosty Berry) in both these pictures are the current group gift FREE at Hello Dave. The group is also FREE to join, making this gift a delightful sum total of a happy Astrid! There were six total frosty colors included in the hud.

I paired my Star Studded Geometric look with a Marketplace find from Whimsical Happenings — this Skyliner Necklace and Earring set. The earrings are difficult to see with my hair, but are lovely star-shaped studs. The necklace is easily resizable for any avatar shape and the entire set only 2L!

My lovely square set is by BricOle’s Designs, which has become one of my go-to designers for great low cost, high quality jewelry. This necklace and earring set, called simply “Square” in red and brown, was only 30L on the Marketplace and matched my Aztec dress with perfect mathematic precision.
