Community pinning? A new pinboard and news

Standard

What´s this? an empty pinboard called Sandbox? Well guess what guys it´s yours, well kinda, i have a few rules for it, you can find them at the end of this blog post.

So basically this is a Community pinboard where every one of my followers can pin to, it´s basically there for us to share among us as a Community, be it Blog posts, Event Flyers, announcements, new releases, tutorials, links to stuff you like and enjoy in SL.

I tought it would be a nice interactive way to share likes of us all, to find new shops, blogs, events and products, it will be moderated of course, but guys we´re grown ups here, we know what to do or not, don´t we?

I´m now slowly adding around 600 people to it, slowly and carefully, if you want to be added right away please drop me an im.

1

Ok here are the basic rules:

1- SL related things, but external resources are welcomed also.

2- No IP infringement items, or SL´s TOS breaking (if you´re a creator or a blogger) if you have doubts if it´s infringing or not, avoid it please

3- Keep it PG, or in other words, cover your bits.

4- Don´t spam, cause you don´t want to be that kind of person to you?

5- Bloggers one pin per blog post, 3 blog posts per day.

6- Add the info on the pin, What, where, when whom is basic info we need, if you´re a creator link to you flickr or blog we wanna see more of you.

7- No bickering on comments, seriously just don´t.

I hate moderating stuff, but i will come down hard on anyone breaking these rules, without a warning and with the blaze of 100 suns, but i do it cause i love yall.

I reserve the right to expand on these if necessary.

That´s about it it´s time for some fun and some pinning.

It´s tragic

Standard

A lot happens today, and you guys know i like doing a blog post every now and then, specially when there is a new event in town, Which is the case of Oneword that should be now open.

 

So every edition of this event is themed by one word, the first edition is Tragedy, and i fell in love with this new MINA hair for it.

But Oneword is not the only event starting today, FaMESHed is back with a new edition like clockwork every month, and it´s where i bought this lovely structured dress from Mutresse, with plenty of colour options, and which i tinted slightly darker for a more noir feel NS Qa pwerfwct fro the new released shoes from Hucci.

Also since it´s Carnaval time and Madi Grass and even tho i don´t personally do hunts in SL but i was over at Papermoon the last shop on the list of 104 that take part in this Spring edition of The Twisted Hunt, one of the eldest and best know hunts in SL, and i wanted a picture themed for the holiday and for that used Sohma´s pretty setup with her hunt gift.

Have fun today guys, plenty to do on the grid for those who celebrate the world wide holidays like me and get to enjoy some extra free time or a long weekend.

See you all soon with more news and events.

Cutting Corners

Standard

Sometimes i like to take a break from clothes and avatars and do a little furniture and decor post, so today i bring you all a little bit of the Four Walls Hunt  that is ongoing until the end of the month.

Again i feel so happy for the coming of mesh, i look at these pics and see such huge improvements in quality when it comes to all rezzable objects available at this time. This last year or so made furniture quality bloom, and most of all diversity with not only more details but lower land impacts, and the huge amount of more blog posts on furniture, houses and home decor shows how much the market grew.

So today here it is a small sample of some items available on the hunt, (Check the creators list here) and a few bits and bobs i had about in my inventory.

See you all again soon, and remember to enjoy your SL Homes.

By the water

Standard

It´s not by the water really but all over SL that the Four Walls Hunt starts today, for the rest of this month at a lovely selection of stores you will find items worth 200L set for sale at 20L and hidden somewhere inside and adorable box with a tree. So go, and hunt and grabb some awesome stuff while you ignore the rest of this rambling blog post.

I wanted to do a special post with more items from the hunt, by the way you can check some previews on their website here, but sadly SL has been hating me latelly, viewers that crash, textures that will not rezz at all, shadows that are ridiculously weird and a lot of bug square, so i couldn´t do my original plan of showing has many hunt items as possible. Also January is one of the busiest and craziest months for my family, we celebrate not one, not two but three birthdays one of them including mine, so between cake and cupcakes, lunches and birthday parties i´m busy, busy.

But i was lucky with these two pics and managed to also stop at COLLABOR88 for some shopping.

I´m not much of a metalics person so this months C88 was a bit lost on me i´ll admit, but i had to grab this lovely dress from R2 i love the shape i love the way the fabric falls and how the rigging is so well done, i just wish it came with matching panties, and the bracelets from BOOM where a perfect match for it, and it all went well with my silly idea of using water, to be honest i rarelly do pics in the water, i dunno why maybe i find it´s sometimes over used, and maybe cause people always mute the skies in them a bit, but i ended up doing a lot of things i don´t usually do it seems.

And i love doing that, going out of my usual confort zone and doing things i´m not used to and i knew i would have to beacause of this chair, it´s called Somewhere Beyond The Sea Chair and it´s by [bauwerk] which is the new brand from the 22769  boys exclusevly for furniture and house decor, and mixing that with these gorgeous Pose Plastique poses called by the water and some soft as clouds and big as well hair from Magika, i was waiting to blog about for ages, i knew there was no way i could avoid water and sky, so i might as well embrace it.

So here it is what SL allowed me to do briefly and also a close up from this dreamy Glam Affair skin with one of my favourite lipstick colours so far this year, see you all again soon if i don´t overdose in cake.

Oh and if you´re still reading, go, go and rush to do some hunting.

Quiet as a dormouse

Standard

Indeed i am, and almost asleep has the little one in Alice in Wonderland, But this little dormouse, yes i´m quite small in general with my SL height to match my RL and i´m always sleepy due to insomnia, i´ve also been sick which is delaying my other big project. This being part one of it.

When i saw the preview on flickr of this two HANDverk sets, one with the furniture and one with the food, i knew i had to have them, first i love SL food and second i love Alice in Wonderland, so my idea was to get five different looks inspired on the five different characters in this crazy tea party.

And my first pick is was the little sleepy dormouse, for which i had to watch a crazy amount of youtube videos with adorable little dormouses snoring and being overall adorable, oh the sacrifices i will do for reasearch, to make my blog posts accurate.

So i decide i was going for cute, and basically it involved my favourite colour which is purple and a little bit of pink, with some new earmuffs, owl themed, my favourite of all themes as usual, (this little dormouse laughs in the face of danger, by sporting adorable owl earmuffs). I also added a little sparkle with my silver glitter in a tiny jar, another one of my favourites from The Arcade, these super cute and funny necklaces by PIDIDDLE, the sweater i got from Beetlebones at one of the best Hunts on the grid that came back again this year, The with Love Hunt (remind me please to finish it).

Something else that is new currently are these gorgeous Sugarskull from lassitude&ennui available only at Unhinged, a shop that just turned 7 years old and already inspired a blogger challenge about the oldest, newest and most favourite item from there, I´m gonna classify these boots as the newest i have from there, and bring out the oldest and the favourite later.

Another thing i have to mention is the pose i´m using on this first picture, It´s from aDORKable and the first one of a set of 25 poses left daily at the shop as a gift, last year i missed them all, but bougth the full pack after Xmas, and since i am horrible at reminding myself of Advent Calendars in SL, i´ll probably ended up missing a few more this year, hopefully they will be available after the season is done.

That´s all for today folks, i´ll catch all later, in the meanwhile you can see me nod off and murmur something about treacle.

ETA: I almost forgot i dressed up as a  Sky Huntress over at the Hottie Cooterati blog the other day for those who might have missed it.

Darkness is coming

Standard

Slowly falling over us all as the A new Twisted Hunt arrives, starting tomorrow, also starting tomorrow is another hunt, The Summer Harvest Hunt, which i will bring you guys soon over at the The Ego Co. blog.

But let´s start with The Twisted Hunt, one of my favourites, always with a dark theme, always with an amazing list of creators, some more well known others sorta of new, here i bring you guys a small preview from it, this gorgeous mesh necklace by House of Rain, that you might remember from The Goth Fair, and occasional blogs, i love mesh jewelry, and i love the detail it brings, also i like it even more when it´s copy and mod, the best thing for any mesh jewelry, that ended all scaling problems of small prims, allowing you to resize it and fit it to perfection when unrigged, like this beautiful necklace, that shows, a barren tree under a jeweled moon.

I missed doing a more dark look, and for this one, i picked a random skin from Glam Affair, an older one from a long lost Dressing Room, and added something new to the look, one of Nomine´s first mesh releases, in this lovely Shapirre tone, perfect for the mood of another gorgeous Garden of Dreams scene.

The dress has two versions, one of them short and another long, with cut out sides and perfect to show of your back.

So guys, prepare yourselves for an amazing weekend and month hunting, don´t we all love a good hunt? I´ll be seeing you all soon with more hunt goodies, have a wonderful weekend.

Standard

Another day and another blog about hair, because Hair Fair is still going on until the 29th, and the donations for WIGS for KIDS, keep rising as the event is not even close to one week of being open. And today i bring you Zibska as i slowly go thru folders and folders of hair, hair demos, and Fair gifts, dollarbies and freebies.

Speaking of freebies by the way Zibska was pretty generous, you´ll find at their booth, i´m even wearing some here, the Nan hair is a Fair freebie, so are the earings and also the makeup, that come in a huge pack of several makeups in Berry, and also a lovely trio of bodysuits i´ll probably blog later.

As usual Zibska brings us fashionable over the top hairs, great not only for fashion pictures, but every day original or even fantasy looks, so please don´t forget to visit their booth.

I´m also wearing some awesome goodies from this months edition of  The Gallery Gift Shop, who just turned one, something rare in events, and that is celebrating the birthday with a new improved build and an awesome hunt, in the hunt you can find a matching envelope purse for this gorgeous dress by the boys at 22769, that i simply had to wear, and even go blonde for, so to compliment this pretty, light and soft colour of the dress.

Brains…

Standard

Is what will be happening at [NN] City today  a new kind of hunt will have you running for the hills, or run down the hills shooting at zombies rather.

This is such a new and funny concept for a hunt, the idea is to shoot zombies and get a score as high as possible, and also avoid zombie bites, because those will lower your overall score, all you have to do is tp in grab a Body Count HUD and a free gun that comes with it, then at the special events vendors you can buy the hunt prizes with your score point.

From the hunt i bring you one of the shops offering prizes for points, which is Discord Designs the two hairstyles here will be available to trade in for points, so time to start shooting zombies.

Also something else i grabbed this week was another dollarbie from The Plastik, every now and then we get this super cool gift and it´s where i grabbed the tops i´m wearing, in the meanwhile for another event that i have never blogged which is Stumblebum. Everyone have a good weekend and good hunting.

ETA: The event starts today and will last all weekend until the 25th.
