House and Home
I’m finding myself with a rapidly expanding collection of mesh clothing in my inventory – just like most people no doubt. I do love me some meshy goodness, but there are a couple of things I don’t like about it too. One is having my inventory clogged up with at least 6 different sizes of the same thing with (almost) every purchase I make. Second is the constant ‘mini tweaks’ I’m having to make to various bits of my shape so that it fits properly.
I’m hoping my mini gripe with mesh will end up becoming a thing of the past in the not too distant future with the introduction of SMARTMESH™. This very aptly named new type of mesh adapts to fit your shape which means you only need a single “One size fits all” item in your inventory.» View author and full post…
As always with the MadPea hunts I had an absolute blast with this one. Some of those envelopes were really tricky to find, but that’s part of what makes it so much fun! So long as you read the information from the HUD carefully all the help you need to find them is there. If you’re still stuck though, there are always MadPeas in the communal pod (or group chat as others might call it) that will be more than willing to lend a hand.
There are some absolutely amazing prizes this time around from clothes, jewelry and tattoos right across the board to skyboxes and things to fill them with. I’ve done my best to show you a selection of the different items you’ll be rewarded with at the end of the hunt.
As far as the clothing goes I’m in a bit of a mish mash of goodies. I have the “Do not Disturb” mesh hoodie from +REDRUM+ which is one of several items from them. On my bottom half are jeans belonging to the ‘Evidence’ outfit on offer from Just Because and right at the bottom are chucks with attached legwarmers from Death Row Designs.
The pose I’m using is one of the “Terror poses” offered by Image Essentials» View author and full post… as their hunt prize.
Over the weekend I spent some time doing the MadPea Enchanted Frost Hunt and like with the last one it was an absolute blast. I really enjoy the whole idea of following a story with hidden clues in each ‘chapter’ given to you by the HUD* as you travel from one place to the next. I find it so much more engaging than the usual way hunts are handled
For the ones I found tricky to spot I am going to share extra clues with you. If you need any further help there are always MadPeas available in group chat you can ask.
Nordmoar Sim – Allergy to pine? Perhaps you should look elsewhere and consider getting to the ROOT of the problem.
Thentis Sim – Look to the Gods and you’ll find the orb.
Sunfield Sim – Burton has a habit of thinking OUTSIDE the box. Maybe you should too.
Now to a few of the prizes!
I was checking out the events posted on the Seraphim Blog a couple of days ago and saw that there is another shop due to close soon. I decided to hop over and take a look at products I could pick up at rock bottom prices. Everything at Baffle has been reduced down to just L$55 which is insanely cheap when you account for the quality of the items there.
As I had a look around a few things caught my eye including the skyboxes which you can test drive on the demo platform before purchase. I was amazed by the quality of them and grabbed a couple.
While I’m quite happy with my SL home I am going to get plenty of use out of these boxes. I think the one I am showing here – Le Petit Reve - will serve wonderfully as a little studio and backdrop for my blog pictures when I’m feeling lazy or don’t have time to find setting.
While I was rezzing my new sky box to have a look at it I was joined by my good friend and the most adorabubble neko I ever did meet.. Elliecat!
We always have bundles of fun when we’re together and today we were playing with houses.
Hi! Happy Friday! I’m personally both glad it’s the weekend but also horrified. My classes start on Monday again and it’s got some pretty big changes for me. We shall see. In SL though, Friday is absolutely a good thing! I wasn’t going to do a post at all because I’ve seen lots of really good blogs go through already about some of the great things on Fifty-Linden-Friday. But.. then Blueberry sent out a group gift, twice even when the chatter started about anticipating other colors! The gift this week from Blueberry is these awesome thigh high boots. Now, to be completely honest, this shoe base, tall sock like boot up over the knee has never really appealed to me. These boots changed things and sent me on an awkward hunt to figure out what goes with boots so tall! The Blueberry group is free to join and there’s almost constantly a group gift to be had somewhere, whether in store or in the notices. Also probably one of the most generous and approachable designers I’ve personally come across.
Couple other things to note as there’s a lot of limited time things today.. the trunk is for FLF from WhatNext so grab that today!» View author and full post…
