Of Fairies, Ladies, and Crypts

The spirits of ladies on lakes and fairies wander freely… the moon shines and though you know you should be afraid… you can’t help but feel enchanted instead. And it all begins with a few pumpkins left out for the picking by the Fantasy Creator’s Showcase Event at the Rising Phoenix Sim

“All the ancient classic fairy tales have always been scary and dark.” – Helena Bonham Carter

And the Creator’s Showcase Hunt got this idea just right with their fantastic gifts. There are 13 pumpkins hidden on the sim — actually they are all out in plain sight. Some of the stores have one pumpkin at their stalls. A few of them have two. All of them are easy to see and you just buy the contents for FREE. A trick not a treat!

In the picture above Astrid is wearing the Autumn Fae costume (complete with wings) by BlueMoon Enterprises. This Creator Showcase Hunt Pumpkin Gift is FREE and includes the full outfit in all the standard mesh sizes plus the gorgeous wings you see in the picture.

I also wanted to show you this fabulous Halloween Cat Mask by Chimeric Arts & Fashion which seemed to fit the Autumn Fae Costume just perfectly. This too was another FREE Hunt Pumpkin Gift at the Creator Showcase event.

Just behind Astrid and at her feet you can see the Creator’s Show Case Hunt Gift from United InishCon *UI* called the Dirty Little Secret Log. It has great little butterflies that flit and fly above it as well as a terrific animation when you sit on it. Your avatar will look from side to side before crawling inside to hide in the log! Like all the other gifts, it too is absolutely FREE!

“As much as I’d like to meet the tooth fairy on an evening walk, I don’t really believe it can happen.” – Chris Van Alssburg

Of course… this is Second Life where anything can happen — (almost) — and look! There is a fairy and the lady of the lake both! As well as another chance for me to show off some amazing Hunt Gifts. If you look in Astrid’s right hand, you’ll see she is carrying the Creator’s Showcase Hunt FREE Hunt Gift from Souzou Eien by Draconias Timeless called Light of the Watch. This fantastically detailed lantern works with your AO just fine (or any pose) to let your avatar hold it with the supplied animation.
And since we are out on a walk meeting fairy tale figures… let me introduce you to the lady of the lake, courtesy of Folklorica! As their contribution to the Creator’s Showcase Hunt, their FREE gift is this stunning Glowing Lady on the Water gift. It includes the floating lily pads and pumpkins (which are animated and turn) and the glowing Lady of the lake who is scripted to appear and disappear during night time hours on the sim where it is rezzed. (Be sure the sim it is rezzed on has a night time setting. The lady will NOT appear during ‘day’ hours if the environment has a day setting. And the script is affected by region settings, not your personal windlight setting.)

“I am your fairy tale. Your dream. Your wishes and desires, and I am your thirst and your hunger and your food and your drink.” – Klaus Kinski

 Last but not least, I wanted to share this fabulous Creator’s Showcase Hunt gift from Old World Designs. Just like all the other gifts, it is completely FREE and well worth picking up. The Spider Infested Crypt has a resting pose for one avatar and a ‘sit’ pose for another avatar (if someone wants to sit on it while someone else is resting inside O.o) and the spiders are affected by movement. In other words… they appear and scuttle and dash away everywhere — and make tons of creepy spider noises if you sit in the crypt, stand up out of it, or if you or someone else nearby moves around it much! It is simply a must have for any haunted decor or All Hallow’s Eve celebration!

Waiting for Sundown

Waiting for Sundown

Fall is officially here, the leaves are turning, and it’s time for hoodies and carving pumpkins! In the spirit of the season, and specifically the grand finale of October that is the best holiday of the year, Halloween, a hunt! No no, think looking for hidden objects and finding cool prizes, not people on horses with a pack of dogs hunting a fox. Lasting the full month of October is the Night of the Living Cart Sale and Hunt. There are tons of amazing designers participating in this festive event. Each vendor has a booth set up with their Halloween best at great prices, as well as a hidden hunt object.

The actual hunt part of the event takes place all over this incredible spooky-winter-themed sim. Each hunt item is $2 lindens. There are items for the ladies as well as the gents, and everything in between from poses to posters! So grab your friends, gather the family, and check it out! This will be the first of a few posts showing you some of the hunt items I managed to gather with my male persona, Diamos. By the way, you’re hunting for a little grey brain object, which blends in really well with a lot of the scenery, so look close!

First, there is this pretty little fall scene complete with the big fall foliage, pumpkins, some well placed barrels, and a few friendly looking rats. This set up with the two poses would be a great addition to any Autumn outdoor decor. I also picked up this lovely luminous lamp, which technically is a table lamp but I thought it would work great for lighting the way on our search and rescue missions.

As I mentioned before, I did dust off Diamos (aka my alt) to do a little hunting with me at the Night of the Living Cart Sale Hunt. One item we found is this hoodie. The item I believe is meant to be a men’s item, however Pru threw on one of the smaller sizes, and I think it looks warm and cozy. The hoodie has a cool logo that reads “Zombie Apocalypse Rescue Team” which is awesome considering the current zombie craze! Also part of the hunt, I found a pretty fall colored manicure/pedicure set with metallic bat overlays.

Last but not least, I picked up this beautiful hair at Little Bones. It is one of their most recent group gifts. It includes a color change hud for the hair, and one to change the scalp part to match your skin. This is seriously my new favorite hair!

Here are the details, Happy Hunting, and Enjoy! I’ll be back later with more previews from the Night of the Living Cart Hunt.
