Fall in Love with MadPea!

MadPeas Rock!!!!

I have a confession. I was all set to do an epic post about Shop & Hop and bridal clothing…and then…well…I got sidetracked. The MadPea Cupid Catastrophe hunt became my main, um, obsession, um, focus? I’ve been a huge fan of MadPea since back in the days of building literary environments.

The HUD to participate in the hunt can be found at the HQ for the MadPea Cupid Catastrophe or the MadPea mainstore. The hunt HUD cost is 100L and comes with the most adorable heart shaped fly swatter ever created. For 100L, you get to run around the grid finding really cool places you’ve never heard of while swatting adorable Cupittos!!! You see, they stole all the little Cupids and are holding them hostage and OUR job is to free them!! It’s insanely fun, and I’ve met a lot of really awesome players and great places to take FabFree photos!

The wee Cupittos all have great names like Meany Greeny and Burpy Purpy, and they carry different point values. Even if you hunt with a pal, the point values are different for each of you because it’s totally random. Sometimes, you DO get skunked with a puff of smoke and zero points, but some include adorable prizes…and these are the prizes I am featuring today!!

In the picture are all the prizes I’ve won so far just hunting around.  I am holding the Key to My Heart sign, and the Valentine’s Banner is behind me.  The chocolates, the two Yin/Yang candles, sunglasses, and the heart basket pair really well with this beautiful tea light and candle set.  The little rug at my feet is another cool prize. 

As you hunt, you get points, and like a cool lovers’ carnival, those points can be exchanged for prizes. The more you squish, the more points you get and the more prizes you can buy! The prizes are nice, too. I have my eye on some heart shaped lights and Valentine letters and cookies. You can buy for yourself OR send some cute prizes to your best SL mates! I sent cookie letters to my new friend, Dino, because he helped me learn how to use the HUD.  I am saving up my points, though, because they release a new prize every day, and I don’t want to spend all my clams until I know my choices.

So how does this hunt work? Well you know, dear Fabbies, I hate complicated things. So, It isn’t necessary to tote around the adorable fly swatter unless you want to…and I did for at least a solid day, being the Duchess of Dorks that I am.  But, really, all you have to do is just wear the HUD and follow it.

The HUD is super simple to use. Basically, all the dots on the radar are Cupittos to squish. Your job is to get them into the center circle, squish them and release a cupid who wants to give you points or prizes! When you are successful, you will get a message like, “You have found a new Burpy Purpy. It contains a Chubby Cupid worth 50 points” and a cupid pops up on your screen. As you squish more of them, you get achievement awards.

Watch your HUD. If the shape is a dot, you are on the same level as the Cupitto. If it’s above you, the arrow points up….it’s below you if the arrow points down. Keep your sounds on because the sonar beeps faster as you get closer to one! Once you find it, you simply click on it, and ta-da you get points, prizes or…sometimes you do get skunked! The HUD calculates your success and you have found all the Cupittos once your head is clear and you don’t hear any more beeping.

To go to the next location, you click the little map icon on the HUD. It’s smart, so it only takes you to places where you’ve not yet found a Cupitto. But, you will return to same locations if they’ve put out new ones. The HUD won’t show you ones you’ve already squished. You can check your stats by clicking the little lines icon. The heart allows you to favorite cool places you’ve visted, and the gift box takes you to the place where you can redeem your points for cool prizes. The Mad Pea icon gives you a HUD menu with all sorts of choices to track your success, look at rankings, or review the FAQs.

The Hunt

If you want to HOST Cupittos on your land or at your store, you can buy the different types at the MadPea mainstore.  They cost between 1000-7000 depending on whether you are an Unlimited MadPea Member (5000L buy-in) or not.  I placed some on my personal RP Scotland sim, and it’s been fun watching folks try to navigate the gauntlet to get a Cupitto!

Overall, this is a fun way to spend some time in SL.  I hope I see you out there!!!

Rockin’ around the Christmas Tree

Rockin' around the Christmas Tree
It’s the time for another Swank Event which means plenty of great holiday shopping and of course, freebies.  You can find the free gifts under the large Christmas trees by the gacha machines in each of the four corners of the sim.  I don’t have nearly enough evening wear, so this beautiful Zehra Gown by Flower Dreams was a wonderful surprise.  It comes with BOM and applier base layers and a lovely flowing skirt attachment that moves along with you, like it is flowing in the breeze.  Another great free find at the Swank Event was the Peace on Earth Madeline Headpiece from Zuri.  It comes in silver with emerald stones and has a carved cameo in the center.

Stunner Originals is participating in the Christmas countdown advent and all their gifts are available for free. It is a great way to stock up on makeup and nails for the upcoming year.  In this picture, I am wearing Plenitude lipstick and Appeal eyeshadow.  The lipstick comes in BOM and with both Catwa and Omega appliers (there is also nail polish included for Maitreya).  The eyeshadow comes in BOM with Catwa, Omega and Genus appliers.  Even though all of Stunner Originals’ advent gifts are available for all 24 days, don’t delay at picking up your gifts.  When the Christmas season is over, these gifts will also be.

Dress sizes included (appliers)

  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
