Hiya everyone! Sometimes certain things will make me drop everything and rush to a particular place or event in SL, and reading a notice this morning did just that. I'd found out about a hunt at the Magic of Oz sim, which is an incredible place to visit, and their hunts are always such fun! This one is celebrating the festival of Holi, which I read up on to discover that it is a Hindu festival of colors or of love, as well as a celebration of spring. It involves in part, spraying or smearing one another with colored powders, so bright colors are evident in the hunt gifts. Please be sure to read the blog before you go, it's worth it!!
I will be showing you all 3 dresses from Katatonik, which you'll have to obtain separately by trading in the powder pots you find on the sim (6 pots for one big pot of pigment) several times, as you receive a random one of the 3 each time. I got the pink one 4 times before getting any others. This lovely dress is the Multi Holi dress, and I am wearing the bows from +Half-Deer+ in my hair for even more bright fun. This is their default location, you can certainly adjust them to suit whatever hair you choose to wear them with :)
This is the beautiful Pink Holi dress from Katatonik, and how adorable is my new lamb friend? Please meet Lalu, one of 4 cuties in the gift from ~silentsparrow~. You get a version to hold and a version to place out anywhere you'd like, of each Lala and Lalu, and Lala has a pretty blue bow and blue feet instead of Lalu's lovely purple, and they each have a secret...do you see the hint of a key for the tail? I was more interested in showing the cute face, sorry about that hehe, but if you click their tails you will hear a brief winding sound, then a soft tune. They describe it as original spooky music, I didn't find it spooky so much as just pretty :)
Finally we have the Purple Holi dress from Katatonik, nicely balanced with the green and even some splashes of blue. The coloring reminds me of cotton candy, also a bit like some manicures I've seen tutorials online using makeup sponges to use various colors on the nails. A quick note about Katatonik's mesh dresses- their sizes are not traditional, instead they include average, curvy, divine, and thin. I tried on the average and it fit quite well, then tried the thin out of curiosity and it was just a tad small around the bust area. So give them all a try and see what suits your personal shape the best, and enjoy the beautiful dresses!!
I definitely enjoyed learning about the festival of Holi, and the bright colors are a terrific way to welcome spring. It is one of the things I enjoy most about SL, being exposed to so many different cultures that I'd have very little chance to discover otherwise, and that sense of international community that is just there for the exploration. I love the opportunities that SL provides us! Hope you're all having a beautiful day/night, much magpie love to all of you :)
