The Christmas Expo 2013

Christmas Expo Kaerri Elvis the Christmas deer (rideable) House of Avro rideable Rudolph NEW!

Oh…My…Lord. Can I BE any more excited about Christmas?! YES I can ! I was invited to take a mooch around this years Christmas Expo & Breedable Fair. Frankly, I was like a child in a candy shop. Strolling about, mouth open, dribbling over all the goodies and snow and decorations and animals and pets and and and and more! I paid two visits and don’t think I even saw a quarter of the four sims that are being all set up for the grand opening tomorrow. Make sure you’ve got a coupla hours to spare, cause you really really don’t want to miss a thing. SO many stores I have never been too, SO many pretties, head spin time ! For me this is the first Christmas I’ve been able to fully appreciate what creators are doing with mesh. The saving in prims is astonishing and the realism incredible. Above is the free mesh outfit from Botanica, which is right up my street in PINK . You get the boots, the outfit, plus a jaunty santa hat. I’m sitting astride the rideable Rudolph from House of Avro. Heaps of fun cause he drives like a proper vehicle, speed controls,and dust from his hooves, brilliant ! My companion on the left is “Elvis the reindeer” , he is made by Kaerri, purely for decoration but I just adored him.

Christmas Expo House of Avro mesh tree 8Li - [DDD] Wreath 1Li - Kismet Precious gifts wooden boxes NEW!

In support of Relay for Life of Second Life and the American Cancer Society, the 3rd annual Expo will open on Thursday, December 5th, 2013 at 10am slt and will end at 10am slt on Sunday, December 15th! There are donation boxes scattered about if you have a few spare pennies, plus each store, and participant on the breedable sims has a “naughty or nice” box. Touch it and if you’ve been a good person you get a gift! If you’ve been naughty, you get a lump of coal . (I like coal – so there) Above is the prettiest tree I ever did see. It’s just 8 prims and just looks SO real. Stood on a wooden base, with its lights twinkling away and a smattering of gifts, its perfect. On the wall is an item I HAD to buy, it’s from Dysfunctional Designs. The wreath is just 1 Li, the wonderous thing is you can choose heaps of different colour schemes for the baubles, the wreath and the fabric ! I was also rather taken by the precious gift boxes by Kismet. Totally different from anything Id usually go for at Christmas (I’m a glittery sparkly kinda gal) but they really stood out for me. Original, more subtle and so well made. If you’re into a more traditional look, check Kismet out, totally lovely.

Christmas Expo Myrrine decor items NEW!

Another new store for me is Myrrine. I stood and just gawked at all the decorations. Shabby chic yet also sooper stylish. I’ve scattered a few bits n bobs around in my SL home and its brought a real warmth to my space that was lacking before. Natural woods, and simple colour palettes.

Christmas Expo NEW!

These boards kinda lean against a wall, artfully casual huh? Like you almost thought about nailing them up, but never got around too it ! Love it. I really fell in lust with the wall decor panel above, whats not to like, its got PINK in it.

Dont think of this as shopping only, its got a LOT more to offer. There are photo ops, a raffle & auction,a hunt and of course Live music and a chance to have a wriggle with your mates.

Banish to the back door no wonder he looks so sad.

Trashed

To think I resisted the shagging reindeer, the dead hanging reindeer and even the dance stage where we can all have a dance not around our handbags but a disemboweled Reindeer.

Trashy use

Will sit up to 4 avatars (if you could find 4 people who would want to sit on him). A total of 9 anims, on or off for falling snow (nice big snowflakes which I forgot to put on for the picture) and click his ciggie to turn on or off the smoke.  This sweetie is copyable and 16 prims.  Other Crimbo scenes set out not all so rudie so check them out.

The best clubs in SL have Pixlights club lightening and effects.  They are so good you can walk through the showrooms with them and although they’re all on and flashing there is no lag.  But you don’t have to have a club to own their lights.  So reasonably priced so I picked up my new Crimbo tree light for 90Lds.

Lights

I’ve actually now moved it up over my house and highlighted by a starry background it is so pretty and yet I managed to take a rotten picture of it so I’ve used this one.

Lights1

This is a close up of the swirly lights to show you it’s depth and prettiness.  But you really need to see them in action so pop to the shop and check them all out. So reasonaly priced, so low primmed and copyable.

I’ve blogged Pixlights before and  will do it again and again probably.  Only a small collection of mens clothes and jewelry here and no womens clothes at all but their furniture is totally funky, fun, unisexed.  Their bikes are gleaming and their cars are sleek and very driveable. A shop that takes design seriously but not without humour and imagination.

Make sure you don’t miss the rezzer as well.  They can supply everything from a complete club, stage and sadly only a couple of homes so far but the attention to detail and shading is so good.

The North Pole & Santa !

ohmy oh my ohmy…I get SO excited about Christmas ! Poor old Player always has to deal with my spiralling festive JOY ! It begins around mid November..and Im almost fit to pop by December 1st …Two years ago we spent a happy evening or three visiting all the Chrismassy places…I was in hog heaven…then we happened upon  the “North Pole & Santa’s Village”, ohmai! It’s just incredible…so much fun…so pretty…so so SO Chrismassy! You arrive at the top of a windblown snowy Mouintain…there is a handy pair of uggs style boots set out for free, so you can slip them on and keep your toes cozy…then you walk down the winding pathway to Santa’s village. The wind really does howl and the snow effects are sooper pretty…

There is a hunt to enjoy while you visit, and it’s not soooo easy to find the gifts, you’ve been warned ! You have to search around and find the places to touch..the gift box magically appears before you, you touch it to receive the prize…and theres some totally lovely gifts , I havent opened all mine yet !

I bought some of the animated reindeer from here a few years back…best Ive ever seen in Second Life…they move so naturally, I adore them. You will find some genuinely unusual and special items to buy, but really..its just not all about shopping…its the MAGIC of Christmas ! Take time to wander and marvel at the animated penguins & elves…explore each shop…theres a post office, a workshop, and of course the reindeer stable, and oooodles more to entertain & delight you. If you want to experience the Christmas times you almost forgot you had as a child..this is the place to go.
