Waiting for Sailors

Waiting for News_001

The ships will all be coming in this week and I’m waiting for a special sailor to make it back from their tour. Thanks to things like mobile towers and face-time I don’t have to miss my sailor friends completely, but seeing them in person is a different thing entirely! But once upon a time, reunions with loved ones who were out at sea for months at at time with little communication were a different thing indeed! These special vintage gifts from The Vintage Hunt, and a trip to the 1920’s New York sim reminded me of that!

Standard Vintage Fair

Be sure to stop by Loordes of London right now and get in on some of the amazing hunts that this shop is participating in. You won’t regret it. I picked up this 1L dress called the Victorian Standard as part of The Vintage Hunt. Just hunt down the little yellow umbrella and this gorgeous mesh dress is yours. It comes in classic mesh sizes XXS – L and includes an alpha if you need it. It’s all one piece, but is highly detailed with excellent texturing. I paired it with black boots for a classic feel.

Is the news in yet?

I picked up another great Vintage Hunt gift from Ashmoot. For just 1L you get two gifts at Ashmoot… these vintage sunglasses (they are resizable) and the vintage radio you see in my hand (I’m anxiously awaiting news of the returning sailors!). The radio gift includes two radios. You’ll get a no-prose prop radio that you can hold using a pose of  your own OR even rezz out in your home because its only 1 prim! PLUS you’ll get a radio that has a pose that will work with your animation override. I used the no-pose radio and added it to my own pose in the picture above.

Happy Hunting! And here is to all those with friends, family, and loved ones who are sailors!

Harvest Home

Harvest Home

Taking in the crops…

It’s that time of year again where the local farmers are out in the fields picking corn and cutting beans (Yes, you have to say that correctly around here or you get a funny look). Pumpkin picking and apple orchards are also a “thing”.  I do love this time of year, but dread the oncoming winter that some parts of the continent are already experiencing.

Work Wear…

I found my farm attire at Waffles as part of the Vintage Hunt, now taking place. The Retro Blue Shirt and Pants Combo with Braces will give you that farm fresh look and the price was right at just 1L, just like all the gifts on the hunt. I need to get back to work as we are still making hay while the sun shines…

As The April Showers Give Way To Flower Power!

whc hippie 1_001

I was a huge fan of Woodstock (I’m pretty sure he was on my first lunch box when I started kindergarten). My memories come flooding back when I think of those times. Of course, I was too young to enjoy the summer of love back then. Sure, I may have gone running off in a field, letting my diaper fall to the warm earth, and enjoying the feeling of a summer breeze embracing me, but I am also pretty sure I would have gotten spanked for it, too. Spanked very hard, the sixties didn’t reach my family home until around 1976. The good news is that for those of us who missed out on the groovy clothes and free love back then, Madcat Creations has designed an excellent prize for The Vintage Hunt. The Male Hippie Outfit is so brilliantly colored it actually looks like it is tie-dyed, as opposed to some similar items with multicolored fractal images on them. This outfit brought me instant faux flashbacks of dancing in the mud, grooving to the sounds of the Grateful Dead. Keep in mind one of the most popular club events in SL are Sixties-themed nights. This prize will come in very handy. The Vintage Hunt is not a free hunt, but the prizes are only 1L and if you look around Madcat Creations you might find the matching women’s version as well (they are boxed separately). My bracelet is a free group gift from one of the best Jewelry stores on SL: Earthstones. The Peace Friendship Bracelet goes great with this outfit, but be mindful that the group costs 250L to join. My campsite is a great hunt prize from Finishing Touches. Available for FREE on The Camping Trip Hunt , it comes with the table, chairs and a nice campfire with a pot of coffee warming. Truly a lovely hunt gift.

whc white wanted jacket

From a full-fledged freak out of colors, we step away from the pallet to admire something entirely different. This white leather jacket with the integrated grey T-shirt from Wanted knocked me out when I saw it. Luckily for all of us, it has just been put on their Midnight Mania board! I was originally planning to pair it with a nice pair of black jeans, or maybe with a frosted texture, which I am sure would look fantastic. However, Apple May Designs had something even better to go with it for 1L in their Recolors Of Spring Hunt. These white pants look great with the jacket, and since they are unbuttoned at the very top, adding a belt to fill the space between the jacket and the pants as shown is a great idea. The Recolors Of Spring Hunt is scheduled to end today so hurry to pick up these pants. Seriously, RUN! As I was preparing this post, I realized this same men’s jacket in XS might please a female avatar who has an androgynous appearance, or is going for a tomboy look. Since it’s an MM board, we guys could sure use your help locking it anyway.

So, as April showers give way to the full bloom of flower power, and your travels on the grid take you to new, exotic locations, please take a moment to reflect on what a lovely, wonderful world we live in. Peace and love.—–WHC Riler
