Pure Gold

“Dare to love yourself as if you were a rainbow with gold at both ends.” ― Aberjhani, Journey through the Power of the Rainbow: Quotations from a Life Made Out of Poetry

The good news is, you won’t need a rainbow (or lindens) to get find your gold today.

Pure Gold 1

The Peace on Earth Hunt 8 is well under way, and the prizes are golden. Literally! I found myself mesmerized by this Medieval Princess Gown in Gold Mesh with its attached Shawl by *GLITTER*. It is part of the hunt and like all the POE hunt gifts is FREE once you find the little blue globe. This gorgeous gown comes in all the standard mesh sizes, is one piece for easy fitting, and would be perfect for roleplay or a formal night out.

Pure Gold 2

The Princess gown called for some special jewelry and so I took to the Marketplace to do a bit of hunting there. I found these lovely mesh earrings by Spider Tree Designs. They are currently a FREE gift offered by the creator on marketplace. If you want the whole set (earrings and necklace together), you can purchase that for the small sum of only 75L.

Though the marketplace link shows silver earrings and says that they are no modify, I did find that the earrings were tintable when I opened the box, and was able to get them to lovely gold color with a little bit of playing! A perfect match to the gold of my dress!

Pure Gold 3

Sometimes you have to weather the rain… after all sun and rain are what make rainbows. But if you’re going to sing in the rain you may as well do it in golden style… with a gown from PurpleMoon Creations. While doing my hunting on the POE8 hunt path I picked up this stunning black and gold gown FREE from PurpleMoon Creations, their offering for the Peace On Earth Hunt.

As always, it comes in all the standard mesh sizes and the detailing and textures are spot on. I love the thigh split on the skirt. Oh the drama! I felt like a movie star wearing this gown!

Pure Gold 4

My last stop on the POE8 path today was Zuri Rayna Jewelry, where I found the perfect bracelet to pair with my gown from PurpleMoon. This FREE bracelet, aptly named Peace on Earth 2015, is a stunning creation of pearl encrusted into gold layers around the wrist and then formed into a peace sign. It is large enough to be bold, yet understated enough to be classic and elegant. It’s one of those jewelry pieces you don’t want to pass up.

Death Becomes Lady Jezebeth in a Den of Spiders

Death Becomes Lady Jezebeth in a Den of Spiders 1

Morticia: [to Gomez] I’m just like any modern woman trying to have it all. Loving husband, a family. It’s just, I wish I had more time to seek out the dark forces and join their hellish crusade. [Morticia Adamms – Character. The Adamms Family Values 1993.]

Ah yes… nothing like classic old school Gothic horror to make your Halloween delightful. Spiders, cobwebs, long straight hair, and tight fitting red gowns — a Gothic beauty has it all. Friendly smiles just are not for her… not when she has the beautifully grotesque to keep her company!

And the Along Came a Spider Hunt and PurpleMoon came through on this deal (as well as a few other designers) on some sweet surprises to make even Morticia Adamms pause in her pursuit of seeking out the dark forces!

Start with a craw over to Lilith’s Den to pick up their 1L Along Came a Spider Hunt Gift — this Along Came a Lloth Theater Stage building set up. It is a mere 25 prim — all decor included. The candles, pictures, table, and rug are each separate pieces and copy-able so you can mix and match to your heart’s content!

Be sure to also drop by to nab this classic dress from PurpleMoon Creations which is fully mesh in all the standard sizes and includes glove appliers for all your mesh body needs (omega, slink, etc.). I love that this dress can pull off a classic Gothic look, but would also be great for the ballroom, Valentine’s day, or any other formal occasion! You can pick up this classic beauty FREE with your Group membership which is a mere 50L to join but comes with regular gifts that are just as lovely as this one.

Death Becomes Lady Jezebeth in a Den of Spiders 2

Morticia: So… you still desire me after all these years? The old ball and chain?
Gomez: Forever!
Morticia: I’ll get them! [Morticia Adamms – Character. The Adamms Family Values 1993.]

Don’t worry, this fabulous skin and hair combination from Lumae and MINA won’t feel like a ball and chain at all!

I wanted to first give you a close up of the two skins available currently as gifts at Lumae. One is a completely FREE group gift courtesy of Lumae and SL free and offers. Join the SL free and offers group for FREE and pick up the gift from the Lumae main store. This one is pictured above and is called Lumae :: Niska – Varda – Death Becomes Her. The second fabulous Halloween skin is called Lumae :: Niska – Varda – Lady Death V2 and is this month’s FREE group gift from Lumae. This group is also FREE to join and the close up of this skin is pictured below.

If you hop over to the Kustom9 Birthday Celebration, for the sweet birthday price of only 9L you can pick up this great Gothic Hair by Mina called Jezebeth in Blood. It comes with a Halloween pallet of colors ranging from black to white with bloody tips. Above, Astrid is sporting it in black.

Death Becomes Lady Jezebeth in a Den of Spiders 3

Morticia: [confronting Debbie in her house] You have gone too far. You have married Fester, you have destroyed his spirit, you have taken him from us. All that I could forgive. But Debbie…
Debbie Jellinsky: What?
Morticia: …pastels? [Morticia Adamms – Character. The Adamms Family Values 1993.]

No! Not pastels! How terrifyingly unforgivable!

But I did want to give you an idea of how versatile the Jezebeth Bloody Halloween color change hud is. So I’ve shown you another color change in the picture above. It does range down to a white with bloody tips as well. It’s a stunning Halloween hair for any bloody occasion (or Gothic party wear).

Death Becomes Lady Jezebeth in a Den of Spiders 4

Morticia: Wednesday, look at all of the other children, their freckles, their bright little eyes, their eager, friendly smiles. Help them. [Morticia Adamms – Character. The Adamms Family Values 1993.]

And help them we will! With one more fabulous gift! Besom is hosting a simply fantastic Midnight Mania board for a lovely hair called Alder which is well worth grabbing before it is gone. The slap rate is high (650) but with the popularity of the store, I had no problem getting the prize. The board closed early for me the day I went over to give it my slap and I had my hair. You can see that the Gothic curly locks were a great compliment to this gown, and the gift is a fatpack — ALL colors included. It is a Group needed midnight Mania Board, but the group is FREE to join, making this a completely FREE gift and well worth stopping by the store to get. Don’t miss out! And take a few friends with you!

The Draw to Enchantment

“Do you hear the call of the waves below?
Or the way the fishes move in the flow?
To Sea! To Sea! The Seagulls do caw.
From somewhere she answers…
She answers their call.
Can you see the foam layered on sand?
Or feel the way it creeps up your hand?
Her curls shine…Shine bright in the sun.
She smiles and dances…
She dances for fun.
She’s ready to share her treasure with you.
Though you’ll need to find it.
Before the others do.”
[Poem courtesy of the Enchantment Hunt]

The Draw of Enchantment [1]

I’ll be honest… I’m not one for hunts. (I’m one of those people who has a terrible time finding where I last left my glasses in real life, let alone finding a hunt item in SL!) But this Hunt drew me in the minute I saw the amazing line up of designers and the gorgeous gifts, and I knew I had to share it with you! Especially as every one of these hunt gifts are FREE. Just find the little purple shell, click it, and viola! You’ve found your prize!

The theme of the Enchantment Hunt is little mermaid. I found you a simply amazing mesh tail for only 50L at The Muses that works great with the mesh Maitreya Lara body (which is what I have) as well as system bodies (you can see the tail in the picture above.) The Muses sells their tail in two styles — Ianthe or Ondine and you can get either style in an amazing array of colors from either their Marketplace store or their in-world store. I admit to grabbing mine from the Marketplace simply for the convenience.

The shot above is also a great view of half of the gift you’ll find if you stop by .aisling. as you swim through this great hunt. Their gift composed of two parts: a pose and a prop. The picture above gives you a clear shot of the pose… the siren or mermaid reaching out to draw in her prey… the picture below gives you a good picture of the second half of .aisling’s. gift — a stunning dagger with an intricately detailed hilt for you to hold.

The Draw of Enchantment [2]

The Hunt includes 23 amazing stops — far too many for me to showcase in one post. But I tried to hit several to give you an idea of just how amazing these gifts really are. This skin by Lumae called Adore – Eione // Anemone (notice the amazing details with the scales on the skin?!) came with every applier imaginable, as well as different color brow options and was also part of the Hunt.

My tiara is an Enchantment Hunt gift courtesy of PurpleMoon Creations and when I stumbled upon it, I fell in love — not just with the detailing and style but with the thoughtfulness of the creator who added a color-change hud! There are 12 gem color options and 5 metal options!

My mesh pearls and sexy star seashell modesty breast covers are an Enchantment Hunt gift from [Glitzz] and just as generous as the other gifts as they included an easy to use resize script that made them easy to fit to my avatar’s shape. I loved that I did not have to modify my avatar to fit these items, but instead I could modify these items to fit my avatar.

Last but not least — it’s not a hunt item, but I found a fabulous gift from you from Alice Project! They have put out a promo on the marketplace as a FREE gift for customers called Summertime Sadness in a special set of Mini Medley colors. I chose this lovely pastel pink to complete my look, but there were lots of great colors on the hud. And as always, this mesh style from Alice project is just breathtaking!

Two Moons and Spitting at the Stars

This week was a twice in a blue moon week! As I have several special gifts to show you, two of which are from “Moons”.

Two Moons and Spitting at the Stars [1]

Your first stop will be at PurpleMoon Creations to pick up this stunning gown. The group is 50L to join but so worth it considering that the gifts (like this gown with its gorgeous detailing around the neck) are stunning and free once you join. This gown also includes glove appliers for Slink Physique and Omega as well, and not only the standard fitted mesh sizes but also a fitted mesh dress too!

My next “Moon” was Moon Hair where I got lucky with the Lucky Letter Boards as my letter came up! My gorgeous hair (called Spit at the Stars) is on the boards there at present in the back room. The Boards require the group which is 100L to join, but again, its a group well worth joining. Not only do you get access to the Lucky Letter boards, but also to many lovely present and past gifts which are setting on the counter in the Main room. Lots of beautiful new hairs for you! This Lucky Letter Board hair was in Naturals 1 and it is snazzy!

Two Moons and Spitting at the Stars [2]

For a look this good I needed some terrific jewelry, which I was able to find over at Lazuri. There are some items out that require the group tag to pick up, but if you look off to the left of those, this Perlline Necklace Set is completely FREE – no group required – and color change too! There is a matching set of earrings too (they are hidden under my hair) and the earrings are just as pretty.

If you get the chance, take time to visit PixelArt Photogardens where I took these pictures. The scenery is stunning!

See you next Sunday!
