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…

Petite Point

Do you ever have problems finding shoes for your petite avatar?

Maybe it is just me but I have the hardest time finding shoes for her little feet.

Midsummer Night’s Dream 4 Hunt came to the rescue for me!

MNDp4.25

These adorable 1L ballet shoes are from {Isis} (#25 in the hunt).

They are called Bellic Ballet Shoe Petite (Dream Pink) and also come in the Dream Blue color. Add the alpha layer to your outfit so your avatar alpha will not be replaced. Take off your petite feet and then wear the ballet shoes and voila! Just don’t forget to point your toes! ;)

Though She Be But Little She is Fierce

Hi there fabulous wee ones! I bring you more petite enchanting treats from Midsummer Night’s Dream 4 Hunt, ending July 21, 2013. Each hunt prize below is 1L.

MNDp4.1

#1 Kastle Enchanted Petite Couture –  Fairy Outfit, wand, & wings

This gift also includes textures for a lavender fairy skin to apply to you petite avatar. BUT make sure you make a copy of the avatar parts before changing the textures so you do not lose the original skin.

MNDp4.4

#4 Petite Elemental Jewelry – Necklace

MNDp4.7

#7 Chaos, Panic, & Disorder – Necklace “Though she be but little she is fierce”

MNDp4.8

#8 Iron Tiger Jewelry – Men’s gift: Forest King’s Horns

MNDp4.8f

#8 Iron Tiger Jewelry – Women’s Gift: Midsummer Queen’s Headress

MNDp4.16

#16 The Whole Shebang – Titania Dress

It is hard for me to take shots of my petite avatar because the invisible regular avatar is bunched up in front of it so when you try to remote cam on your petite face for example, the camera will point upward at your invisible face. To alleviate this issue, I used a petite cam to take these shots. It is the Tiny Cam Wonder HUD, with rear and front view and zooming. It is free on marketplace. I use it to zoom in close enough to the petite face that I am inside my invisible avatar and I can remote cam freely from there. It is not perfect but it is what I have made work for now. If you know of a better petite camera out there or have other solutions to this problem, then please leave a comment. Thank you! ;)

Last Chance For Romance…

The Winter Romance Hunt, that is! This hunt is for Petites,  Minikins, Littles, Immortals, and other small, mesh avatars. The prizes are not free, but are only a petite 5L. Unfortunately, the hunt ends TODAY, so if you want any of these great gifts, you need to get hunting NOW!

wrh3f

On the left I’m wearing the Appasionata Gown from Kastle Rock Couture Petites (#6). On the right is the Fantasie Dress in Silver from Bitsy Boutique (#1), sized for Petites, Immortals, and Minikins.

wrh21f

My necklace and earrings are not from the hunt, nor are they free… but they are on sale as part of the My 60L Secret Weekend Sale at Petite !Elemental Jewelry. I’m guessing that means they will only be on sale this weekend, so there’s something else you need to hurry to scoop up! The jewelry is texture change, with silver and gold metals, and 4 different types of gems and beads. I know you can’t see the earrings because they’re buried in my hair, but they look just like the large gem hanging on the necklace. There is also a WRH prize at Petite !Elemental Jewelry (#12), but can you believe I forgot to wear it for the pictures? :-( It’s a cute set of His & Hers bracelets… go get them!

wrh9f

This sweet, beaded snowflake gown with the fur stole is from Sister Fate Petites (#8). There is also a handsome prize for men in the box. The Shiny Bench Set in Green is from ~Geniwian~ (#18), and includes the bench, coffee table, rug, and vase of flowers. The bench has sits for couples as well as singles.

wrh12f

This comfy Winter Romance Loveseat is the prize from PRIME Petite (#4). It includes 3 couples animations, and offers a glass of wine and reading material, if you feel so inclined. My pajamas are part of the prize from Sweet Petites (#15); there is also a matching pair for males. Wow, I really need a pedicure.

wrh15f

Also in the box from Sweet Petites is this cute snowflake bra and Panty set. For the men, there’s a pair of matching boxer shorts. My Mexican Snowman Belly Ring (inset) is the prize from Top Katz (#44).

wrh26f

Before you head out into the cold, be sure to pick up the prize from Ema’s (#27). Included are the sweather, jeans, scarf, hat, and boots. There’s also a prize for the men. Tiny hands can be warmed by the campfire with this prize from ~winged creations~ (#22). It includes the campfire and 2 stumps, and has several animations.

There are LOTS more prizes in this hunt, but there was just no way I could photograph them all and still get the word out to you today. Be sure to visit the official blog for hunt clues and photos of some of the prizes.

Finding FabFree – 21-40

Renee has shown the first 1-20 Finding FabFree gifts, and I will be showing you 21-40 in this post, and Trinket will be up next with 41-60 and Kyle with the men’s items..  First however,  In Renee’s introductory post to the Finding FabFree Hunt, she said ” I’ve told you my “Finding FabFree” story.  How did you Find FabFree?”, and I thought this would be an excellent time to share my early experiences with Fabulously Free in SL :)

 I joined SL in March of 2010, arriving with a group of friends from another game, and I was fortunate to have a couple of friends who were here a few weeks before hand and were able to hook me up with some (what I thought was) decent stuff.  Like most noobs of that era, I wore the likes of  strappy bling shoes and strutted around quite pleased with my sparkly self.  After three glorious months of giggling insanely over “the thriller dance on command” (it is still kind of funny after 2 years lol), and looking like a TOTAL noob, I met a friend who introduced me to the Fabulously Free in SL blog.  The first blog I read was a post done by Carson about Garden of Dreams.  Since reading that first post, I scanned the blog every day picking up the things the FabFree Bloggers said were must haves and I never thought I’d be lucky enough to be the one writing at Fabulously Free myself a year later!  That’s my story – what’s yours?
