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!

Finding my SWAG and AlterEgo

swag1_final

“I made it to the sim and there was no lag
so I started walkin’ and collected some SWAG!”

The SWAG Fest is wrapping up soon and ends on October 31st. This is your last chance to score the SWAG freebies and dollarbies along with some exclusive merchandise only sold at this event. AlterEgo has a dollarbie with a mesh Logo Hoodie and mesh Logo Fitted Cap (seen below on the right). While I was there I couldn’t resist buying the mesh Black Swag Sweatpants at 250L that paired so well with the hoodie. My fellow bloggers Love and Renee have given me the nickname “The Diva”… and so of course I had to buy the Diva Fitted Cap as well for 50L. The mesh Checkered Nerd Glasses are a dollarbie from *Epic* and includes a HUD to change the color.

To find the freebies, cheapies, and dollarbies at SWAG look for the kiosks located around the parks in each shopping district.
