Fantasy Land

MArgauxDufaux hunt #001                               

This is kinda last minute so let me get to it. The newest round at Stuff in Stock is fantasy themed and there are many dreamy items there for you to enjoy. This wonderful Samantha skin by WOW, shown here with Desdemona lipstick by Pekka. The lipstick perfectly accenting this awesome Siren's Lust corset by Sugar, that comes to just under the bust. This fun Disney Mouse necklace by I <3 Fashion with color change stone and tassel are a nice contrast and finishing touch to this look.


Also from  Stuff in Stock these adorable Rainbow Pony jeans by Evenflow, they have happy little unicorns on the back pockets and some other really nice details. Closing out this fantasy inspired look is this Fairy Light by Tentacio. This cute little jar with fire flies inside have a little friend to ride alone and a pretty flower as well. Also should mention too that the poses used in this post are from the I believe in unicorns set by  G o l a and you can pick these up as well at Stuff in Stock.  Sorry I am so late with this post but in any case, new round starts Monday, so you have just a couple more days to grab up these awesome goodies and more. So what are you waiting for?

Sweet Kitties

I have an addiction to lucky boards/chairs or whatever form they come in. The latest offer for my stalking was LoveCats Designs. It's always fun to collect up a large pile stuff and then put something together from that. Taking into account the 16 possible prizes from the boards, the MMs, group gifts and camping, I got away with about 20 complete outfits plus some other bits and pieces. Yes, I spent many hours there, but what better way to multitask if you're stuck at the computer in FL?

Below is ONE look that little adventure resulted in, just to keep this short and sweet. Go and have a look. Group membership is needed, but that is free. If this is your second nature, the group is well worth hanging around in because of the daily specials chosen from the regular stock.


Ears and Tail: from Demon Kitty Outfit Mens - Lucky Board
Piercings (see pic below): Piercing set - Group Gift
Jacket: from Snakebite Outfit Mens - MM board (now regular stock)
Tattoo: Pawprint Tattoo - Group Gift
Belt: Avid Girls - Lucky Board
Bracers: from Dark Kat Outfit - Lucky Board
Stocking: from Dark Kat Outfit - Lucky Board
Pants: from Dark Kat Outfit - Lucky Board
Paw Boots: from Dark Kat Outfit - Lucky Board

Below is a closer shot so you can see the piercings and get an idea of the texture of the jacket. I did blog the belonging chaps in an earlier post here. LoveCats at her best has a real flair for textures, some of it makes me drool for sure.

The sombre sim is Virtual Decay, home to Virtual Decay... fancy that...

That's all from me for this time... take care and have fun!!!

The Crystal Hunt Part 2

Hello... I'm back! I just HAVE to finish my postings about The Crystal Hunt that marks the opening of the Petites Kingdom!

The hunt is on to the 20th this month and the prizes are amazing... if you're into petites, of course. If you're not, this really is the time to have a go because you can collect some very impressive stuff for absolute free here.

Beside the central floating castle, there are four themed islands on the sim. All has their own story and offers everything you could dream a petite could need and then some. 31 stores, including names like G Field, Wasabi Pills, Al Vulo  and Rfyre, are participating. All necessary info as well as the list of the participating stores can be picked up at the landing point at the central flying castle. 

It's not a difficult hunt, but I recommend to regard it as a pleasant day out. Some basic knowledge of the sim is needed because the coveted crystals are not necessarily hidden on the same island as the store. The clues that each participating store gives are good, however. A little relaxed exploration while 'hoarding' clues will set you right. In fact, I found this a very pleasurable and colourful change from most other  hunts. A real treasure hunt.

Crystal Hunt Part 2 - 1

This event has put a huge grin on my face for a few days now. These little guys makes me laugh and puts me in a general good mood. Especially this little merman tail... what else would it be called but a 'minnow'? XD

Anyway, a few more of the impressive prizes... What a merman...ehm.. petite minnow.... would do in the air? *Points at wings* Ever heard of flying fish?

Petite Minnow Tail: Clownfish Merman Yellow, Pacific Sunrise. Includes tails for both genders plus a simple unisex AO.
Wings: Insect Wings, KaiAna. Comes with retexture HUD. Wings and veins can be coloured and retextured independently as well as animated. 

Crystal Hunt Part 2 - 2

Hair: Noriko, Wasabi Pills
Dress, including hair corsage and wings: Stella-B, G Field

I hope you notice I'm a bit out of words for this one... She's both topsy and turvy ^^

Crystal Hunt Part 2 - 3

Alcove with hanging chairs: Garden of Light, Mole End
Slippers: Arabian Slippers, Trident Jewelry. Includes pairs for both genders as well as full size avs.

Well... regrettably that's the end of this hunt for me. Where else to enjoy that but in the cool shade with some delightful company. I've found this hunt pretty amazing... and I've only shown you half the gifts! A huge warm thank you to all the involved creators.

I take my farewells for now in a pretty sweet mood. Have fun hunting!

Moon Festival Cart Sale and Hunt

VA Moon Festival Cart Sale and Hunt

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.

Virtual Asia will join the fun of this traditional Asian celebration this year with many fun events hosted here in the city .

The fun will start Sept 30th  with The Moon Festival Cart Sale that will run until Oct 14th. This cart sale will feature designer items and great goodies from over 20 of SL's most talented designers.

The Chinese celebrate The Moon Festival with special mooncakes, that  are regarded as an indispensable delicacy. Mooncakes are offered between friends or at  family gatherings while celebrating the festival. For the duration of the cart sale there will be a Virtual Asia Mooncake Hunt. Guest will be guided around the city hunting for these special treats stuffed with generous gifts  from participating designers all over the city.
