Periwinkle Snowflake

Snapshot_005

Hello Fabulous Readers! I have returned to tell you about another brilliant Women Only Hunt 2 prize that I recently picked up!  I might as well… the weather is minus a billion and it’s dumping snow all over the place.

Oh the weather outside is frightful
But the fire is so delightful
And since we’ve no place to go
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow

Don’t worry…  Environment Canada ensures me it will warm up in 7 days! [Click to see a funny video about weather in Canada]

Speaking of snow…  It’s Snowing At Petite Mort

Petite Mort is participating in the WOH2 this year and has a gorgeous silvery periwinkle dress for you as a FREE prize once you locate the hidden snowflake hunt icon.  This is a tricky one and it took me a while to find it, but as you can see…  It’s worth the challenge!

Better in a Black Dress

Black Widow
Hello again, Wonderful Readers!  Earlier this week, I was startled to hear a rummaging sound emanating from my closet.  When I turned to investigate, my canine pal, Ripley, emerged, clutching his tracking harness gently between his teeth.  He pranced over to me, dropped the harness at my feet, then stood, waiting expectantly, his tail waving happily from side to side.  I knew this meant only one thing – the pupster would soon lead me to another Fabulous Find.

A-Hunting We Will Go!

After snapping Ripley into his hunting garb, I did a quick search, and discovered the intriguing Black Widow 2 Hunt is in full swing.  Packed with spooky, edgy gifts hidden along 5 paths comprised of 13 stores each, this hunt will remain open through November 30th, so there’s still a bit of time left for you to don your detective hats, and hit the trail.  Rip and I opted to begin with the “Black Veil Path.”  At the first stop, Kastle Rock Couture, I showed my fashion-seeking hound a picture of the hunt object (the “Spider’s Kiss” vial), and he quickly set off, nose to the ground.  After zigzagging around the store, we finally uncovered the cleverly concealed bottle.  For only 2L, the stunning Black Widow Gown joined my collection of formal wear.

Timeless and Beautiful Elegance

Nestled inside the prize package, I found a lovely black formal gown with long layers of organza and tulle that flowed into a full, floor-length skirt with a softly gathered bustle.  Glittering sequins shimmered in the moonlight as I slipped into the form-fitting, strapless bodice.  A sweeping train, ruffled trim, and a lacy black veil beautifully adorned the frock, adding a touch of graceful splendor.

What’s Included:

  • Omega Advanced Applier
  • Pants/shirt layer for classic avatars
  • 4 flouncy, skirt layers
  • Widow’s veil

Feeling elegant and sophisticated wearing this floaty, glittering dress, I accompanied Ripley to the plaza of the Invictus sim where we made two new avian friends.  Before closing, I want to share one last photograph with you, which showcases the magnificent train of this glorious gown.  It’s hard to believe it only cost me 2 little Linden dollars!

Better in a Black Dress
With just days left in the Black Widow 2 Hunt, we’d better get back to work.  Until next time, my friends, happy shopping hunting!

~ Kat (and Ripley)

Kat is wearing…

Mesh Body:  Maitreya Lara

Mesh Head:  Catwa Annie

Head Applier:  Glam Affair Barbara (99L at Kustom9)

Eyes:  IKON Triumph Eyes in Coffee

Hair:  Truth Hair Cerys

Jewelry:  LouLou & Company Enigma

Mooncake Hunt @ Virtual Asia

“Every year on the fifteenth day of the eighth month of the lunar calendar, when the moon is at its maximum brightness for the entire year, the Chinese celebrate “zhong qiu jie.” Children are told the story of the moon fairy living in a crystal palace, who comes out to dance on the moon’s shadowed surface. The legend surrounding the “lady living in the moon” dates back to ancient times.”

At the Virtual Asia City, running until 15th October, you can take part in The Mooncake Hunt. Searching for these delicious cakes around the city by using the SLURLS and hints below you will find some really amazing items.

The Twisted Hunt Part 1 – Buildings and Furnishings

The Twisted Hunt is one of the darker hunts in Second Life.. it is also one of the hardest, if not THE hardest. The theme for the hunt is “Darkness” and there are 194 stores of madness, torture and twisted torment, guarenteed to drive you insane before you finish it. Be sure to read this all before you start hunting, it will save you valuable hair pulling time. I know its alot to read, but it will be worth it I promise.

Ok, first be warned, there are mazes, decoys, mini games and all kinds of devious confusion along the way. There is traditionally no hunt blog for this one, but you can see the Participating Merchants list to help you if you get stuck and want to move on. You can also join the Twisted Hunt group in world where you can ask the Hint Givers for help. In short, if you want the prizes, you are going to have to be prepared to work for it.

As part of the fun there are also gatchas at some stores aswell as mini hunts, sales, special offers and all kinds of other things going on. Be sure to click the Easel at each store for more information about whats happening.

One thing to bear in mind is that gifts will be within 30 meters from the landing point unless there are more than one prize, then only one will be within 30 meters and the others could be anywhere else inside or outside of the store. There are also Petite prizes in some stores. These will have a letter P in the title so you know the difference.

Ok enough pre-amble, on to some of the gifts you can find along the path to crazy town.. Insanity awaits.. Your starting point is at The Twisted Headquarters.

In this post I will show you about the Buildings and Furnishings you can find in the hunt.. clothing and other things will be seperated into another post to make it easier for you to read about.

The first picture shows you what you are looking for. The Twisted Lament Box coloured Blue, usually spinning.
