Hiya everyone! I have more fantastic goodies to show you from the Kiyomizu Summer Hunt, and I remembered a really beautiful place to use as a backdrop...the Mieville Asian Gardens I stumbled across during another hunt (Silk Road). Let's get started!
First I posed by a lovely Japanese lantern, while wearing the beautiful prize from #74 Chika Labo. This is their flower dress in cyan, and comes in standard mesh sizes. The colors are great for summer, bright and perky.
This beautiful bridge made a fun backdrop for the prize from SMC, also known as Sencha-An, #55 in the hunt. They are known for their lucky boards in the Kiyomizu shopping center, great mesh clothing and Slink shoes, so they're a pleasure to visit. This dress is a long linen dress, subtle and elegant. I'm also wearing the earrings from #63 Rika Shop, the delicate Saturn earrings you can see a closer view in the upper left. They even rotate slowly, which I love, but you can click them to turn that off if you prefer.
I really needed to show you a closeup of the sunglasses I'm wearing here but couldn't fit it into the photo (as an inset like I did with the earrings above) without missing out on some of the beautiful background, so I went with a separate photo. In the first photo, you can see the front and back of the prize from Cute or Die! #17 in the hunt. I'm so taken with the style, and the utterly adorable bow with ribbons cascading down to the hem in the back! The dress comes in a wide range of sizes, the usual standard mesh ones plus an Av2.0 size and a KEMONO size. Now the sunglasses, I think they added an extra sassy touch to an already sassy dress :) They are the prize from #32 Water Voice, and are called hand sunglasses. As you can see, they are holding a lantern, and the colors in there do swirl and change ever so slightly. The hand is only on the left side of the glasses.
Here's an intriguing outfit, as it comes with a HUD with more abilities than I'm used to seeing. Prize #25 from SHOP KERO includes the top, skirt, and pants (each in standard sizes) to mix and match as you like, and the HUD offers 6 different textures with these cute paw prints in various shades and backgrounds. The added bonus, there are a circle and a square that each have arrows left and right, and one is for the texture scale (I made it bigger in the second image) and rotation of the texture. Play around with them and have fun!!! :)
Finally we finish the post with a lovely kimono from White Shell, who is #28 in the hunt. The pattern on it is beautiful, and I found a terrific building to duck in and take a photo from the doorway. It's a perfect place to take such an elegant photo. The kimono comes in XS and S sizes, and includes undergarment layers and a pair of zouri (sandals) not shown.
Nail note of the night: I couldn't resist going with the lucky board prize from *pulcino*, which I've blogged before but it is located at the Kiyomizu Mall so you can easily stop in when you start your hunting there, and see if it's your lucky day!
Today was quite a day, we got hit with some horribly intense thunderstorms along with a very rare tornado sighting in my county. All is well though, no injuries reported, and I'm grateful for that. I hope you're all having a terrific day/evening, magpie hugs to each of you!!
