Party Look Of The Day 2010-12-31

"Tell me, hon, why am I standing out here in a snowstorm in the middle of the night freezing my butt off?"

"Because we want to wish the readers of my blog a Happy New Year, and it's so romantic out here, don't you agree, dear?"

"Bah, wipe that grin off your face, hon, and let's get this over with! My champagne is turning into ice cream!"

"Anything you say, dear, anything you say, but I'm afraid my feet have frozen to the ground ..."

Nightmares & Nicer Events

When I woke up, I found myself sitting in an alien looking cave with cold wind blowing down my spine. It was snowing inside, no joke, even if you can't see it on the picture, and the eerie sounds I heard, some of them sounding like a hungry dragon's belly, gave me the creeps.

Fortunately, after hours of wandering around this cold, almost out-worldly sim, a helpful fairy lead me back to my imaginary space ship. I'm so tired ..… snnzzzzzzz .....

Fantasy World of SL

Please tell me you have been to Grendels before, because if you haven't, then you haven't experienced SL in its most entertaining sense! This Christmas goodie offer only comes once a year. Blink of an eye, missed it and you have to wait an entire year for Grendels to give you all these goodies again during Christmas(both dragon and medieval being are just some of the many many items in the hunt!)


Location: Grendel's Children (There is a mining thingy going on here, you can try it out but it yields nothing for now. Apparently, Grendel's Children will be announcing more details later, possibly for 2011 New Year celebrations!)

Location 1: HUGE Gift Sack (this is the one bag you cannot miss at the fireplace!)

Location 2: Shoulder Pets Pressie (the statue is holding the pressie)

Location 3: Bugs Cubies (on a coffee table)

Location 4: Frozen Cubie (near the giant salamander)

Location 5: Frozen Gorilla (right on top of the frozen block)

Location 6: Flying Raptor (Look up people! Its in its mouth!)

Location 7: Spider Leg (This needs you to pan up and rotate till you see a small pressie on 1 of the spider's leg)

I was there for hours and in my mingling with everyone, these are what I have concluded, and are all the items found after everything rezzed, do let me know if I missed any. Hope everyone is patient to wait for the elements to rezz, ask around if you are lost. Generally, if you can get there using the LM from here, people are quite friendly to help out. *wink* :P

You better hurry if you are keen and reading this! 0.O

Here's what Santa has for you if you were good: 3 skins, 3 pants and 1 tattoo [actually 2 tattoos but you can't see me wearing the second one under my jeans ;) ].

The 3 pants are still around from yesterday's Advent Calendars for all who missed out on them till now. Just click box # 24 under the NEVER EVER Xmas tree and buy the box lying on the ground in front of the Xmas tree at :. WoE .:.

The 3 skins are gifts from *JeSyLiLO* on the occasion of the designer's birthday, so probably not around too long. Get them at once!

Plaid Never Looked Better This Christmas

Ok this hunt is a short run because its made for Christmas and only recently released, so you really don't wanna missed it (ends on 25 Dec I think). Plus, June Dion, one of the most prolific designers ever established in SL, has spent a lot of time planning it with narrative stories to give the hunt a more meaningful and human touch. The hunt is made up of 4 parts and at each juncture, we will collect the parts to form up this christmas themed plait suit (comes together both femme and homme versions! hair and boots not part of suit!) Last but not least, if you pan your camera down underground into the secret sewers from the middle of BareRose HQ, you will see a locket on a table of a japanese living room which contains 2 special items (the cap and and the locket!):

Location: ::: BareRose HQ ::: (Click on the board for the hunt, it will give you the start point)

I am terribly sorry, I shan't reveal all the direct locations because I think June Dion and her team has spent vast amount of time to narrate the story for the hunt, simulate the various picturesque settings for the 4 different locations in the sim and we should really try to appreciate the work gone into this and enjoy the hunt in proper. :P
