Big Fat Fail.

First a Woo Hoo as I’ve just come back from a short and excellent holiday all refreshed and rarin’ to go, Boo Hoo because I’m failing miserably in finding a lot of The Homeless Hunt Items. The icing on the cake is look at this.   A private Brides changing room which for Tempestuous (the shops name) isn’t really a surprise as this is a shop that has some Bridal Bling that would even tempt me to say yes.

BrideYes I did go apesh*t with Windlight because I can and because this build can take it.

LomoIgnore the clutter as all of it apart from the picture isn’t included in the package.   If I was ever interested in getting SL married I’d set this up as it is  weeks before the big day and use it as my “campaign  room” and plan everything from there and set out a lot of what will be used such as flowers, wine, dress etc. As it happens since I don’t have a prop dress I simply rezzed one of my favs but in a size I don’t use and it looks just as stunning as a room decor as it does worn

r4frYou can add a rug or two but the flooring already comes with a very posh champagne style label.  The doorway doesn’t have a door to it and because I rezzed this on my platform in the sky instead of the ground opening onto a lovely view so I blocked it a curtain so that’s what that white panel is.

One for the boys as well. You could have his n hers facing each other while you prepare yourself for the big day.  The boys is the same overall design but with a slightly darker colouring but no less bright.

LightAlthough it has that burnished steel look it’s soft and bright and unharsh.  The roof has 2 panels missing so you can use a setting that shows off the stars or sky.  The candelabra speaks for itself and inside the shop you can buy either the same or very similar and what looks like matching lamps to add even more bling.

ShapeSlight gratuitous body shot but I’ve just received this new shape from Anna’s called Leticia.   As I always say I never blog shapes as 99% of the free or discounted shapes are NAFF but Anna’s shapes to me are just PERFECT.  The only shapes I never feel the need to fiddle with.  The proportions are perfect but of course this is very much a personal preference and so they do come as mod so if your preference is different to mine then you can do all the tweaking you want as even the discounted version comes as a mod.  This is Analy Amat’s  latest Designer Circle offering and everything there is priced between 50-100Ld which is a brilliant bargain price. Because this is at a bargain price you only get the one shape but make sure to check out her shop as well because she has so many demos for you to try on but also a few dollarbies which is pretty damned generous of her.

Because this is a discounted item you get just the 1 shape but I believe that in the full packs you get a small selection such as a model shape, more leggy, a smaller shape and the standard shape I could be wrong because I just wait for the discounted ones as they’re a brilliant bargain.

Again I LOVE her shapes they’re feminine, realistic, flattering and on and if you want to see a close up of the face then the next picture is of it with my usual Essence Wednesday skin (that’s a skin merchant I whole heartedly adore).

Although I must also mention the Homeless Hunt Shape I’ve previously posted about and I will put the link for that at the end because although I tweaked the lips a bit the overall shape is one of the nicest curviest shapes I’ve found so if you want more Oomph in your booty then this is for you.

TiaraClose up of the face,Analy Amat does such simple sweet pretty shaped faces.  Wearing my usual Essence Wednesday skin. The tiara comes from Tempestuous, called  Clara pearls and diamonds.  When I first put this one I thought it was more a fantasy of spikes and bubbles which means it is more wearable than for just a wedding setting.  I know I have some outfits that would look divine and ethereal with this on top.

Dress2

This is the actual dress from my previous blog of Tempestuous and I still have it after all this time.  When I popped back to the shop to do my usual write up and check out any new goodies I couldn’t resit having a bit of fun with the model in the shop so now you have 4 images of this dress (me, her and the picture in the background). Personally I think I wear it better LOL.  Called Clara as well, unless I’m mistaken about the name, this is a shocking deep red but you can get the exact same dress but in virginal white with a veil to get married in.  Would be quite a funny thing if you wore the white dress to the wedding and then changed into the shocking one for the dance late OR wear the red one on your first year anniversary.  OOOO All I need is someone (daft enough) to marry me.

Mean n Moody (The Homeless Hunt)

You may struggle to find the hidden box but the search will be more fun that you think.  Time, money and more importantly imagination has been spent on the layout of  李 周杰倫  (superjaix) shop called XIAJ.  The LM takes you to the entrance of a subway station, walk down the darkened tunnel to the subway entrance. Such attention to detail.  At first I was wondering where exactly were the clothes but one click on one of the trains brings up a menu all you do is chose which department you want to visit ie men, women and discount and then another click and you TP there.  Not a massive selection but there is an edge of youth and newness to the designs. No demos in the shop so not going to assume they’re mesh but if you check out his Marketplace shop you can see he does have a lot of mesh and also many items come with colour/texture changing huds.  I’ve also added Superjaix flickr so you can see the look you will get if you shop here.Jacket1The jacket I am wearing is the Homeless Hunt item but as a bonus if you can’t find it then slap the Free to Join Group board and you get some leopard sneakers male and female versions included. This jacket/shirt combo is mesh and is scruffed and worn as befitting the theme of this hunt.

DuskJust an image of the escalators down to the trains now is that tempting or what.  Special mention is that if you’re not tempted by the clothes still call in and check out the “new” items room because he’s kitted it out as a man cave so if you are SL homeless and need somewhere just to be able to sit, maybe with a friend or two and chill then there is a home here for you.

Fully Dressed (The Homeless Hunt Freebie)

Cross ProseddAnother great freebie donation for The Homeless Hunt.  Again wonderful to see plenty of items for the men of sl and one of them is the shape (only) I am wearing. Excellent that Markel Shapes has left this freebie  modifiable and copyable because no matter how much you pay for your shape everyone tweaks it to suit their preference or for  a certain outfit.  All I tweaked was the lips, I made them a tad thinner.  If you like the whole look then with each shape comes a styling card so you know where to get the hair/skin/eyes etc from.

shape useTo let you see the full effect I had to semi strip.  Love the shape, it’s a great in between a boyish shape and that gorilla shape beloved by (too) many and not by me.  Excellent shoulders and not the slopes that the slimmer shapes seem to have, the biceps are muscly but not overly so.  Sadly no demos but find this hunt item or pick up one of the really reduced ones and if they’re as good as I believe they will be then you can go for the more expensive ones and know it’s not going to be a dud.  His shops are arraigned an enclosed courtyard/shopping area as seen in the first photo.  So what your looking for it a box and just to make you work for it the people involved can not only change the size of the box but also the texturing.  There is also some seriously discounted shapes in the 49Lds Sale for Dudes plus some old items priced at 99Lds.  A selection of womens shapes as well.

Special Mention to Skittles In The Pit. This iis an SL organization that is trying to raise awareness not only in SL but RL about Mental Health Issues and other things.  They have created a very interesting Inworld place for people to come and find out more about the way they can help and help they can get.  Loads of RL and SL info.  I know a lot of people will instantly think “how can someone access SL without the internet which means they must have a home?” a lot of people in our lives can be the “hidden homeless” is couch surfing and we just don’t know it.

Faith’s bit of rough (The Homeless Hunt).

Hunt gift poseThis pose is a great gift for the Homeless Hunt from elephante poses.   Even if you’re not a blogger but like to take a decent picture then the trick is the pose (and the windlight settings of course).  Elephantine is packed with them and very reasonably priced and I should know as I have a whole folder of poses from here.  This is a his n her pose and I love the fact that the “pose balls” are in the shape of musical notes which makes them much prettier if you want to leave them out.  Rest assured that the box you’re looking for it easy to find and I can only hope that the other hunt items that have been placed out here are just as easy to find because you can never have too many excellent poses.

WhateverThe hoodie that I’m wearing in both pictures is yet again a Homeless Hunt item.  It says “university of whatever” and I was hoping that this was Unisexed but it’s not, so lucky for the boys and boo hoo for the girls because it’s shop quality.  Great fit, great texturing, great look. Comes from American Bazaar so I’m not suprised .  A real good 50/50 mix of men and women’s clothes and more than reasonably priced.  There is a very preppy spring shirt jumper for only 89Lds! a bargain at twice the price so I’ve loaded up with demos and when I’ve had some quiet time I’m trying them on and going to treat myself.

Special mention to the burning barrel. Another The Homeless hunt item (I wasn’t able to squeeze in the flickering TV).  What suprised me most wasn’t the quality of this and the TV but from who donated it.  Tempest Jewel owns Tempestuous which is as far away from people getting warm over a burning barrel.  He shop is all bling, bridal and rich.  However since I grabbed myself a couple of items from there I will do a little bit more about her shop soon.

T*ts n A**

Mars skinshapeIf you want T*ts and A** and free then you can’t go wrong with this shape and skin from Mars.  Another  generous The Homeless hunt gift  (small box is what your hunting for).  A big thank you to Mar for making the shape mod because no matter how lovely the shape everyone has their own taste but I have to say that I simply adored the generous butt n boobs look.  Perfectly proportioned shape it’s so nice that the only tweaking I did was I made the lips a tad thinner and that was it.  For those who like their ladies with some curves this is perfect.

Of course I am writing all of this as I’m stood in ℳÄℜ (Marietta Washborne) shop and it’s small but omah it’s busy! A few people were grabbing the Group Gift and another was plonked on the Lucky Chair and the rest just looking.  Downstairs is skins like the one above and also fantasy skins and the Vampire ones are particularly sexy but check out upstairs as she has more fantasy skins which are more extreme, yet equally as sexy, with horns and hooves. So basically she has everything from the curvy and sexy to the wicked and sexy.

Bring it on! (The Homeless Hunt).

Homeless Awareness Hunt Poster Final

I’ve been waiting for this hunt for ages and now it’s finally started. I did write a whole load of stuff about how frighteningly easy for any of us to fall into the poverty/homeless trap but then I read this on the Skittles In The Pit blog site and I though this is better.

“A blog that provides information and caters to mental health awareness and the ending of stigma that comes with the illness and disorders. Hunts and events are used to educate the general public on mental health in order to help decrease the stigma so in return people who show signs and symptoms on various disorders, seek help without feeling judgmental of themselves. Feeling stigma stops many from getting the help they need.”

Organised and run by the amazing Joshuan Banx (anyone’s name I’ve missed out I do apologise) and WOW has he pulled it off big time with this hunt. Sponsored by some of the biggest names in SL and the list of shops who have donated are guaranteed to have donated great goodies.  I’ve been fortunate enough to be sent a few examples of whats on offer and I’m grinning.

What your looking for is a little brown box however to make this a kick ass hunt the shops are allowed to re textured and change the size of the box and Boo Hoo no hints! But follow the link and just look at the shop names and it’s going to be worth it.  Also special mention is that MEN are equally as catered for which is really good.  A lot of packages have both male and female items in them so boys get hunting but since this is a month long hunt plenty of time to mooch around.

Here’s an example of whats on offer, picture only but the next post will have all the details and much more.
