And I Feel Fine

And I Feel Fine

It’s the end of the world as we know it..

Genre has started a new round and, this time, the theme is Post Apocalyptic. Chariot‘s contribution are these fabulous scavenged breastplates – they are modifiable so I had no trouble fitting them to my shape and the textures are exquisite, as always. There are three versions available: ‘Unstoppable‘ (pictured), ‘No Entry‘ and ‘Diverted‘ – they cost just L$50 each or you can buy all three for L$100. The round is open until December 12th and is packed full of incredible items so be sure to hop on over!

I also want to mention this androgynous ‘Jahne Doe‘ skin by Deluxe Body Factory because I am utterly in love with it! It’s one of the prizes in MadPea’s latest interactive hunt/game, Blood Letters. A modifiable shape is also included but I used my own because I really like the way it looks on my current face shape.

Blood Letters is an unusual and compelling murder-mystery game that unfolds a little bit each day. You need a HUD to play (costs L$400) which allows you to pick up clues – you receive prizes at the rate of one a day (if you miss a day, don’t worry – you can go back along the time line, you just can’t skip ahead) and then a bunch more at the end; they have all been stunning so far (you’ll have to wait a little longer for this skin as the story hasn’t reached that location yet.) I’ve been playing along and it really is a lot of fun with a great sense of community in the MadPea group as we all try to solve the case! The game runs until November 30th and the starting point is here; full instructions on how to play can be found over at the MadPea blog. The experience is most definitely adult-orientated so I would recommend making sure you are comfortable with the themes before taking part.

Thanks for reading – see you all soon!

If you’re still looking for Halloween inspiration, you should really check out what MadPea has to offer on the Marketplace – they have two stores there: older items and more current ones – there is something for all budgets and, being MadPea, the items are quirky and packed with the kind of atmosphere perfect for this time of year.

Wondering where I am in the picture? Well.. I’m the table.. this fab avatar is just L$10 and I am totally in love with it..

..because it’s totally random and fun to just blend into your surroundings (assuming your surroundings make flesh-eating pies on period furniture seem normal!)

I scuttled off to take this picture at the creepily fantastic Bentham Manor, which is part of the Green Mire II Hunt. Today is the last day Green Mire is open and the last day of the hunt so make sure you wrap everything up and grab your last photo opportunities while you can – there are also two new gifts to pick up if you’re in Madpea’s free-to-join group:

Pea in Captivity Necklace

MadPea 8000 Watch

Lots, lots more is coming in November, including MadPea’s first adult only hunt – Blood Letters – I’ll be bringing you details soon, or you can always check out their awesome  official blog!

Have a spooktacular time, everyone!

I love this time of year and everywhere I turn people seem to be releasing the cutest things; there are loads of free and cheap items popping up all over the place. My dress is a new free-to-join group gift from COCO – and I absolutely love it – it’s just so sexy (with side slits you can’t see in this photo) yet casual and it’s going to be a while before I take it back off! The incredibly detailed collar is a new VIP gift from Remarkable Oblivion. This group costs L$50 to join but there are a whole bunch of amazing gifts available for such a tiny price.

The super-cute hair with eyeball bows is by LaViere and can be found at Trunk or Treat – this colour is from the red fatpack, which is totally free, and I think I remember the other packs only being priced at L$80 each. A HUD to change the colour of the bows is also included. Trunk or Treat is a kid-friendly event but there is plenty for adults to enjoy too – most carts seem to have a freebie and it’s a lovely little market to look around – it ends on November 5th, so be sure to visit before then.

I’m also totally in love with this skin by 7 Deadly s{K}ins, which can be found at a discounted price at the fab Feeb’s Rascal’s St. Sales Room – the colouring is just beautiful, especially on this freckled version.

Finally, Ricielli is having another hunt to say goodbye to their old store as they refurbish.. there are 20 gorgeous, and generous, prizes available – including a fatpack of these stunning shoes – all for just L$15 each. You can see a line-up of the prizes on their Facebook page and I think the hunt ends around November 12th.

Back again soon, thanks for reading!

I Want to Believe

I want to believeMadPea’s latest hunt Green Mire II – The Gathering is well under way – I had huge fun following it, especially as it’s not the traditional hunt we’ve become accustomed to where you hop from sim to sim looking for the same hidden object. Instead you wear a HUD and follow the story of the path you’ve chosen – the object (or person!) you’re looking for can vary greatly from place to place as you’re basically tracking down clues as you become immersed in the unfolding tale.

Some of the items can be challenging to find but there is always lots of friendly help in the MadPea group should you need it and, because the story is so engaging, I found that took a lot of the usual hunt frustration out of it as you really feel involved with what you’re doing. I completed both paths and I think the time commitment amounted to a few hours (I completed it in stages and had a good look around some fab sims I’d not seen before!) – you can always go back to where you left off, too, so it’s easy to just dip in and out as suits you. The hunt runs until October 30th so there is still plenty of time to take part at your leisure!

The HUDs cost just L$100 each with loads of prizes awaiting you at the end of each path – grab the one(s) you want at the starting location in the Green Mire.

You can also read an introduction to the hunt over on the MadPea blog here.

Scroll down for more pics & credits and, if you do decide to take part, I hope you enjoy it as much as I have!

To coincide with the hunt, some new Peawear has been released to really help you feel the part. It’s great-looking mesh with options for both guys and gals:

This month MadPea took part in the Bleeping Bunny Hunt which ended on the 15th (I know, I’m sorry).. but the great news is that the mini side-hunt that they ran as a sponsor is being left up until the end of the month so you still have time to have some fun and get your hands on the fab hunt prizes priced at just L$5 each. The Mini-Hunt will give you clues to different locations around The Green Mire – some objects will contain more clues (these are free to buy) and some will contain prizes such as the slippers and filthy-mouthed shoulder pet (modifiable so you can tone down the chat if you prefer!) pictured here. Find and click on the poster to receive your first clue and happy hunting!

Pretty much everything else I’m wearing is also by MadPea – you can find these other goodies and more free group gifts in the big hangar at the landing point. It’s always worth a good rummage around there, you never know what you might find! Also, if you’re in the mood for more puzzles (and haven’t yet completed it) see if you can solve The Green Mire Mystery which paves the way for the new hunt starting next month.. YAY!

Finally, a quick comment on the photo resolution – although things have been rezzing for me a whole lot better since I updated Firestorm, my computer seems to be having an off-day so I haven’t been able to make my photos as large and prettyful as I would like, but they are very honest – I’ve done a very little work on the exposure of the first photo and just cropped the close-up – such pretty skin!

See you soon! ❤

When Snails Attack! (Kagami 2014)

I’ve waited to post about sian’s awesome items (more about these after the next pic) for this Japanese horror themed event because I wanted to be able to experience it fully for myself – and I’m so glad I have because it’s truly amazing! There is so much to see and do – I really took my time and spent a good few hours there (in sessions) but I still feel like I want to go back and do more. You land at the market area and from there you can pick up a HUD and instructions on how to play the game in which you follow and interact with an unfolding storyline.. a kind of puzzle adventure. The theme is horror but it’s creepy in parts rather than terrifying and I found the overall atmosphere interesting and endearing.. and the builds are beautifully done. It’s also completely free to play!

I’m seriously impressed with all aspects – it’s just so fun and engaging and with the main puzzle, hunt & mini games within the game, there is lots to see and do! I’ve posted a collage of some of the pics I took as a teaser – but I’m giving no spoilers about the rest of the experience.. I hope you all have chance to find out for yourselves. Kagami will be available until the end of the month so there is still plenty of time. SLURL here or read more on the official website.

As I mentioned earlier, the landing point is a market, and here you can shop for some truly original items designed especially for the event. sian very kindly sent me Chariot’s blog pack which contains a wealth of items based on the manga series Uzumaki.. I confess I haven’t read any of the manga, nor seen the film (though I now very much want to!) but the items are exceptional. I’ve always loved snails – there is just something about them that make me smile so, to me at least, the skullclamp, earrings and bracelet hit a sweet spot between creepy/sinister and cute (because ‘OMG there’s another snail.. squee!) – I appreciate you may feel somewhat differently if you don’t like snails but you still gotta appreciate the gorgeous textures and originality.. I particularly love the bracelets for the snail trails! For each main item you buy there are bonus snails – for decor and for your hand – and there is also a fatpack of all the ‘Spiral Obsession‘ items available at a very reasonable L$400.

Seeing as I’ve been enthusiastic with my editing of the photo I’ve included a raw shot after the credits.. and a shot of the items displayed on a rather interesting mannequin head I picked up on the Marketplace. Hopefully they give you a little more detail, but I also recommend taking a look at sian’s flickr as the photos there are always incredibly beautiful and you’ll also be able to see the table in its full glory.

I hope you take the opportunity to visit Kagami while it’s there and show some love to the creators and participating designers if you’re able because without them our little world would be a whole lot less interesting!

See you soon!

This is going to be a picture-heavy post but I couldn’t resist because the colours and surroundings were so beautiful. I finally made my way to the stunning Noble sim as featured on Cait’s blog and, I’m sure, many others. It is absolutely gorgeous and I need to go back to take many more photos! A nice touch is that if you join the group you may rez objects – a very useful thing for bloggers! The group costs L$150 to join but I think that’s a more than fair contribution to make towards such a lovely place.

Several of the items I’m wearing are from The Gallery Gift Shop‘s anniversary event and hunt.. including this fabulous hat by Aniki and Mayhem Seetan of Azoury. It is so much fun to wear and the textures capture the light beautifully.. there are two colours available (black and gray) and both are for sale at The Gallery’s event for just L$79 each.

The amazing easel set is by Pandora Popstar of LISP – it includes various poses and let’s you ‘paint’ a picture over a certain amount of time (3, 9 & 15 minute options are included as are a wearable brush and palette). It’s really cool to watch the picture develop and, once completed, it gives you the image to place onto a canvas (also included). There are several pictures built in to the set but you also have the option of adding your own.. which is what I’ve done here.

I’m going to stop chattering now and just post the rest of the pics.. full credits are at the end of the post!

Thanks for stopping by! ❤
