Silk Road Hunt

Hiya everyone! I've been working on a hunt from the folks at Historical Hunts, this is their 6th round of the Silk Road Hunt and the specific theme is Roman Empire. If you remember back in March I blogged a few times about the Steam X Hunt, these are the same organizers :) All the prizes are supposed to be either unisex or contain a male and female prize, so that's great news for the guys, who are frequently left out. In a lot of cases, unisex translates to household/furnishing type items, but there are quite a few costumes as well.

This fantastic mesh toga is from #023 Enchanted Designs. The ladies' prize includes the toga in standard sizes, laurel wreath pieces left and right (for easier adjusting I'd guess), strap sandals, and mid arch feet. Now I admit I had trouble with the feet, and even decided to try Slink mid feet with the sandals without success. So you may want to provide your own footwear, but don't most dresses expect us to do that anyway? :) The toga is stunning, and the wreath is a great touch.

How about another mesh toga style? This elegant prize is from **DSO** who are #027 in the hunt. Her name is Vesta, and the male version is called Vulcan, and they each come in standard mesh sizes.

This unique style outfit is from Rosamyndi's, #007 in the hunt. We have system layer top and glitch pants, two different styles of skirt (prim flap or the fuller skirt shown), the head jewel and neck jewel I'm wearing. That gold texture is really eye catching.

Next we have a remarkable toga that would be perfect for roleplaying or a themed party (or perhaps a costume event at a club). From Tayren's Fantasy Fashion, #026, you will find included a system layer top and glitch pants, shoulder drape in regular and busty/lolas sizing, the lovely bracelet I'm wearing, mesh laurel crown, a lola's applier, and jeweled sandals for default feet that are not shown. Whew, that's a lot of goodness in one package! This is Antonia, and the male version Antonius is equally stunning :)

When I visited Sparrow by Design (#025), I was pleasantly surprised to find not only the pyramid we're looking for as the hunt object, but a bonus gift for each male and female. While the main prize contained household goodies (sofa and decorator plates), the bonuses were outfits that strictly speaking do not match the main theme, but are quite fun! In the photo above I'm wearing the female giftie of course, those bright colors are really something!

Nail note of the night: I needed simple but elegant, so I went with a marketplace freebie I've blogged before, French Natural by Snow. Goes with everything, and provides a classic look to suit the various outfits I was wearing :) It was just what I needed.

I sure hope everyone is having a good weekend so far, with plenty of reasons to smile. My Saturday took a weird detour but I'm ready to have a fun Sunday :) Lots of magpie hugs to all of you!
