Red Packet Hunt and Lantern Festival

It has been a while since I have had the time and been motivated to do a hunt, but when I saw the Asian inspired red packet hunt, I could not resist. In this hunt you will be looking for red packets. Many Asian cultures celebrate the spring with a festival, during this spring festival it is Chinese tradition for unmarried folks to visit their elder's homes to pay their respects, in return they get rewarded with Red Packets containing money. Here you will visit shops in this event and get some great prizes. The participating stores in this hunt are alaMood Boutique, Allep Jeans, ARAI, Atelier AM, Au Arora Shop, AY.Line, BeetleBones, Bunny B, Cockles, couverture, DUBOO, Dustarrz, glow studio, hair Oh, Happy Finds, insignia, KENZIE&CO, kik, Lark, Leafy, LG Concept, Love Soul, Mah poor Quality, Mango Mango, Miseria, mocha, Modd G, Mother Goose's, MudHoney, MY UGLYDOROTHY, NINIKO, Ohmai, (OMFG) I Love it, oyakin, PIDIDDLE, Pig, rcbg, RunoRuno, Slash Me Poses, tee*fy, This is a Fawn, tomoto, Whippet & Buck. Now with names like that you know it has to be good. Now to the business at hand....

First up I have on the !Ohmai: Lantern Dress I picked up at the first stop. This cute little number has a plain top and a very intricate pattern on the full babydoll skirt. A great casual look to get the party started. In case you are thinking I am not looking quite the same I am not. I am wearing the *Minettes- Just Peachy Flavour shape, that went well with this I will be wearing different Minettes shapes all through out this post. I have had these for a while and was looking for the right thing to showcase these sweet petite shapes. There are some newer shapes being offered at the lantern festival at the end of the red packet hunt, if there are any on here you are looking for and do not see there, the main store is right there on the sim so mosey on over and check them out. I don't do many shapes but these are really cute. Also featured in this look []::Tuli::[] Hope onyx (sunkissed) picks gift skin.. I LOVE it !! So soft and sweet the perfect thing to compliment any shape. Another hunt goody included in this look are the alaMood Chinese Luck jewelry set that includes this golden necklace and bracelet with luck symbol charm, there is one for women and a gift for men also at this stop. This adorable ++AY.LinE++RPH.A2[[Cocoa]] hair, the package comes with a couple of styles and each has 2 options and also comes with 2 really neat hair corsages, you will see more of these in the post. Wrapping up this look are these yummy Lark - China Doll Flats, I really like the Asian print and clever toggle button on each shoe, and they look great with most of the things from this hunt.

In the last location of the hunt, you will be invited to a special Lantern Festival to experience the tradition -- there are 3 red packets hidden in the last location. Please visit the lantern festival area and check out the items from Modd G (including new releases for 50% off), Miseria, Slash Me Poses, Bohica,skream, *BOOM*, Minettes, Tw, and Fable! Throughout the duration of the festival, get a limited edition set of *BOOM* Sabotage dresses, pictured at the top of this post, for a special price. The set comes with both versions and priced at only 200L, which is more than half off the original price.

Thanks to Raven Dulce for helping to model the *BOOM* Sabotage dress

The Festival ends on the 22nd so don't miss out, and the hunt goes on til 1 March..
