I'm resisting the urge to quote corny lines from Monty Python.

Or from The Princess Bride?
"I am the Dread Pirate Roberts and I have come for your SOUUUL!" *snort*

I promise my Christmas wasn't grim at all ... but I wanted to show a few of the prizes from the Lost Souls Hunt before it ends on December 31st. This is an almost-free hunt hosted by MadPea Productions. You purchase a HUD for L$100, which gives you landmarks and hints, and permits you to collect the prizes. The hunt begins at the MadPea store at Hoshi Sim. For more information including thumbnails of the prizes, you may visit the official hunt page.

There isn't much to see down here, in the under-under-basement of Insilico.

But I'm really glad to see you!

This? I'm not sure why someone left paint sitting here.

I held on to this Miel dress for a while, because I wasn't sure how I wanted to use it. Finally the other day, I received a group gift from Deco, which included these grungy goggles by Gutterblood Spoonhammer. (Love em! They remind me of Dad's welding goggles.) Before Mr. Spoonhammer started selling wares upstairs at Deco, I used to visit his shop at ROT dev (gone dammit). The rough goggles inspired me to grunge up the Miel dress. I toughened her look combining the booN topknot with a buzzcut hairbase, and the gauged and pierced ears. The gauges are actually timepieces. I love that kind of details!

In case you still had any doubts whether this chick is someone you want to mess with, she is sporting a garter with a rusty old pistol tucked in.

p.s. I finally gave up on the idea that my husband might ever be much interested in Second Life, so Inotto is now officially my male alt. I've put too much work into him to throw him in the virtual dustbin so you'll see him now and again.

The last couple of weeks, I've been sick. It got me thinking. Along parallel tracks of thought:

a. I need warmer clothes;
b. it was stupid of me to take my daughter trick or treating in the rain, even with that big ol' golf umbrella;
c. It was fantastic going trick or treating in the rain; even if I got sick it was not to be missed.

So here I am in the cuddliest softest oufit I could get together. Just looking at the knitty sweaters and corduroy is making me smile.

Okay okay, so only in Second Life can I tuck cords inside my socks :) don't be a critic.

I was in the mood for something sweet. So I bring you ... Shortcake! This fluffy little confection might as well have the bell skirt made of fondant. (Yum)

I was poking around feeling blah, clickety clack, ho hum, whatever ... when I wandered into this shop and saw this sweater jacket.

From this vantage, on the hill and behind sandbags, I can see for miles. Without an intact gate, it's not very secure, but better than nothing.

Finally drawn out at night by the smell of blood ... the small animals in the woods are not very satisfying.

This has possibilities ...

*tsk* wasteful.

There you are ... the last, worst inmate this place has to offer, friend? Come! Come to me!

Come and meet the dark ...

This amazing gown is the "tiny" version, which was smaller and shows less cleavage than the full-sized version, so it is more appropriate for tiny or child avatars. For those of you on a tight budget, Ms. Miles has stocked a lucky chair with a version that has the adult decotellage and the shortest tutu-length skirt.

And then there is the ring. ... Wow. If you look carefully, the little rows of silver beads around the stone are actually tiny tiny skulls. And there is a bit of swirling light inside the diamond. Wouldn't a blood diamond be romantic for a vampire?

Gown: Evie’s Closet “Tiny Fable Halloween 2010” (resized from tiny version)
Ring: Naith Smit “Blood Diamonds Ring”
Shoes: Gos “Posh Bootie”

Just stop and breathe. That's what I am doing this week.

But in between breaths, I made time to go see the Seasons Hunt like everyone else. :)

If you've seen all of these things before, that's all right. They're perfectly lovely anyway.

Most of this is from the Seasons Hunt, but not the shoes. ... For a couple of weeks I've been avoiding going to G Field because I wanted these shoes so bad. And not just one color either. You know how you see some things in Second Life and wish you could get them in Real Life? Yeah like that. Finally when I was in the mood for self-restraint, I went and bought them, only the two pairs in brown, and purple. Oy.

Sweater: Pig “There b Leaves on it T” (Seasons Hunt)
Dress and Corset: Ingenue “Highland Traveler” (Seasons Hunt)

For my taste, this skin is the prize that makes the hunt. It is much less photo sourced than the previous MHOH hunt skins featured, and the photo elements are so carefully blended in you don't notice them. I stripped Inotto down to his Arnadi undies and looked him over till he felt like a cheap piece of meat LOL. The attention to detail was all that! Parts of this skin to which many designers pay less attention were flawless. For example, the scalp has the same kind of subtle freckling as the rest of the face. And for my money this skin has the prettiest ears I have seen on any skin male or female. (I resisted the urge to take a close up shot of his ears, you're welcome.) The dragon tattoo is an alpha layer addition.

Magically swapped tattoos so you could see this one too. There were several to find in this Hunt but I think this one from Aitui is the most original. Perfectly bone chilling and went nicely with this dark Dracula-esque suit from LnL. Muahahaha. You can't even see fangs until he bares them.

Could you put on a little Luther Vandross?

I just melt in these eyes, and nothing but appreciation for the man wearing this skin. He is just mature enough, starting to get one or two silver bits in his hair.

An adult. And the jacket is like the man, just a little aged, but well cared for.

He knows how to dress up for a casual dinner.

Or dress down for a fly club. To introduce you to his best friends. (But what happened to his shoes?)

The skin pack from Tellaq also includes an older and still gorgeous version of the skin, with more silver hair, and clean shaven skin. He's lovely.
