A Cinnamon Unicorn in a Garden of Dreams

I read The Secret Garden when I was fairly young. It was one of my childhood favorites, and like many children, I loved the idea of hiding places and anything that promised any sort of secrets! Perhaps that is why these two very special Midsummer Night Dream gifts appeal to me (even as an adult) so much!

A Cinnamon Unicorn in a Garden of Dreams [2]

First, the creator of Lilith’s Den has really outdone herself with this Dream Garden in mesh. Fully set out with all its pieces – which includes plants, statues, arches, tiled floors and so much more – it is large, beautiful, elaborate, and only 40 prims!

What’s more? She’s been incredibly generous with her packaging of it. Not only has she made it copy and modify (in fact I sized it down in this picture to a little less than half the half the original size so that the garden would ‘fit’ the ND/MD petite avatar gift I am showing you with it!) but she has dual packed the hunt gift. What does this mean? It means she’s not only packed it pre-setup for you, but also has packed every single piece individually within the box so that you can mix and match your own secret garden to your heart’s content! And nearly every piece of the garden is only one land impact! A truly impressive masterpiece and generous offer and hunt gift for just 1L!

And since magic is the topic of the day, after doing my poking around Lilith’s Den (The sim is one easy to get lost in just because it’s terribly fun to explore! You may not want to leave!) Your next stop really should be ND/MD to pick up their fabulous fully mesh petite avatar gift for ladies called “Little Me Unicorn.”

Once again, this was a creator who outdid themselves on detail with a hunt gift – just check out the features on that face! The detail around the eyes and the horn and clothes are included too! Everything is included except the hair and all you have to do is find the butterfly and pay 1L!

To top this little beauty off, I did a little searching on the Marketplace for hair (we all need hair!) and managed to find this great little curly number for petite avatars by A&A called Melrosa Cinnamon for only 1L. With the modify permissions and a little creativity with tinting, I was able to touch it up and give it a great indigo affect that matched my new Unicorn hunt gift just perfectly!

Here’s how you can get the garden and recreate the magic…

Guest Blog by Geoffrey Edwardstone – IT’S GROUP GIFT TIME FOR MEN

A Guest Blog by Geoffrey Edwardstone – IT’S GROUP GIFT TIME FOR MEN…

Ydea is a freebie clothing hunter’s paradise for both men and women.  Every month there are new group gifts for both sexes and the group is free to join.  Better yet, the previous group gifts stick around for awhile.  There are two whole walls full of outfits, one for men and one for women, that you can pick up for absolutely no charge at all.  Ydea’s new April gift, the Tropez shorts outfit, put me in a warm weather mood, so I ambled over to the Tiki bar to get a picture of it for you.  The outfit comes with a mesh overshirt, shorts with sculpty legs, and mesh sneakers.

1) YDEA April GG

And how about this little beauty?  I’m talking here about the outfit, not the car.  If you happen to own a white sports car you can find the perfect outfit for cruising around with the top down on the Ydea past group gift board.  The Grant outfit includes pants layer dress pants, black buckled sculpty shoes, and a blue mesh jacket with open collared shirt.

Another good place to find free men’s clothing is Resun.  Resun specialzes in outfits with a bit of a European fashion flair to them.  In addition to the regular group gift near the entrance, there are group freebies scattered among the regular-priced items (you just have to look for them) and there is a separate discount area with lower-priced older items.  The outfit I’m showing here is the Roby Group Gift (free to join) featuring traditional clothing layer leather pants and shirt with prim collar and cuffs.  I’m also wearing low black casual shoes from Gabriel (former hunt gift) and Gabriel’s Unisex Body Bag (free group gift, free to join).  The free body bag group gift also comes in cheetah and camouflage fabrics.

RPH5 - #23

Here’s another men’s gift from the Runway Perfect Hunt #5.  Second Life is for letting us do things we never could in RL, so for those of us who never made a varsity team in any sport now we can at least look like we did.

This outfit is the RPH5 male gift from CHG Fashion.  It includes a tee (jacket layer) plus rigged mesh jeans with belt, hat, jacket (in both open and zipped looks), and sneakers  – a complete outfit for only $5L.  In case you’re wondering about the purple and gold colors, the jacket and hat are the team colors for a U.S. professional basketball team, the Los Angeles Lakers, with the team logos and name carefully changed.  But despite the basketball symbolism, I’m showing it to you as a varsity football player (that’s the U.S. version of “football”) because I like the poses.

If you ladies want to color-coordinate with the varsity guy in your life, CHG has a female gift in the RPH5 too.  You’ll find the same outfit in the women’s prize along with a color coordinated mini-dress cheerleader outfit.  And, no, I’m not going to model the mini-dress for you.

RPH5-#27(69 Park Ave)

This is for all the Fab Free guys out there who think Menstuff and Make Him Over are the only hunts where men can find high quality, free or nearly free items.  Love, Xia and Xiu have been blogging The Runway Perfect Hunt #5 gifts.  Yes it’s true that most of the 51 stops on it have female gifts, but a couple of them have men’s prizes.  Today I’m showing you two gifts guys can pick up from RPH5, plus a couple of other freebies.

The Cayman outfit in sandstone is from 69 Park Ave GQ and features a jacket layer shirt, brown mesh pants, and dress shoes – a complete outfit for only $5L.  It’s a nice casual outfit for an evening out or at home with your lady.  And while you’re looking around the store for the gift be sure to check out the group gift. 69 Park Ave GQ gives out nice ones and they change frequently, so it’s well worth the small joining fee to get them.  The pose is one of five male poses offered by KaTink in the RPH5.

diva-esque.

This dress is available to all group members of Baiastice in the mainstore, along with a LBD, not shown here. Remember to save it for your Friday night out :) The shoes I’m wearing is not free, but sooooo cheap you have to get it! It is 49L from Blackburns, totally worth for a pair of mesh boots. There are other cheap, beautiful shoes available in their store as well (Xantheanne blogged about another pair of shoes from Blackburns as well).
With the growth of mesh feet in the grid, I actually find that tights and leggings have been rendered useless since its just weird seeing tights with toes. I am however, not such a great fan of mesh feet cause I just spend way too much time trying to get the skin tones to match. But I’m so happy to be able to show off these almost free tights from Q.

A Whisper In My Ear

aeva heart sick photo

I’ve decided today that I’m going to go all dark and spooky for this post, which is why I’m posing in this graveyard which is giving me the heebie-geebies terribly.

The pose you see that I am using  in this post is from Model Poses who at the moment is having the Gumdrops Hunt. Inside each gumdrop is 3 different poses, each gumdrop is 5L with a total of 14 gumdrops to find. 42 poses for 70L? What a great deal, especially if you’re wanting to stock up on new poses. I have some event exclusives to show off to you all. The dress I am wearing is by Sakide which is an exclusive item for the “For Aeva Heartsick” fundraiser. Personally I love this fundraiser because it is to help out a fellow secondlife player/creator so that they won’t have to leave our beloved secondlife with their great creativity.

necklace photo

The beautiful mesh necklace I am wearing today is brought to you by Adore&Abhor which also is an exclusive for the “For Aeva Heartsick” fundraiser. I absolutely love this necklace because of the simulation of it dripping/melting.

Okay I think I just heard someone say my name so I’m running out of this place.

See you all later!
