I am really drawn to the styling of this dress from Sparrow by Design, who have thoughtfully provided both a male and a female gift for this hunt. This is their Gun Club Groupie dress and has a beautiful corset bodice, with plaid skirt and a draped shawl that reads Baltimore Gun Club up top, then around the hem "One day, however -- sad and lamentable day! -- peace was signed by the survivors of the war". The gown is in standard mesh sizes, all one piece, and there is a slight train to its style.
Kittycat's Creations provides yet another well researched treat for us hunters. This is the Cog For-us and is based on a tantalus (usually a small locked cabinet to protect alcohol from servants or younger family members) as well as a ferris wheel, as seen in the middle. The decanters are Steampunk Cocktails and Lovecraft Brews, each of which offers any who touches it a choice of 12 beverages. Two examples from the Steampunk selection are called Laced Absinthe and Gear Grinder, while two fun possibilities from the Lovecraft list are Deep One Ale or Nightgaunt Whiskey. Drink at your own risk ;) There are two versions of the tray, one wearable as seen here and one to rez out for a mere 4 land impact. The drinks you receive upon clicking have a built in animation, and each have unique chat emotes too. Just right click and add from your inventory.
AdelleArts has us looking ready for just about anything (but mostly adventure) in this fun Lady Adventure outfit, which does have a male counterpart included in the prize too. The shirt, tank top, and shorts are a single mesh piece in standard sizes plus a Maitreya version, while the boots and resizeable hat are included as well. The resize script came in handy for my springy curls.
There are many home decor items available throughout this hunt, especially including this gorgeous bookcase from Simply Shelby. It is their Jules Verne bookcase and has a land impact of 12, and is just so lovingly created to honor the author with many of his books on the shelves, a photo of him in the upper right, and some fun extra details. Be sure to keep an eye on the man on the moon when you display this, and you can click the ships wheel for one light and any of the brass bars on the top for even more light as shown. The case itself has a reclaimed ash finish, which as you can see is quite beautiful. You can click this photo to enlarge it and see it a bit better.
The best way to sum up my absence is that a family member wound up in the emergency room and I have been acting as a caretaker ever since. Cellulitis (a skin infection, swelling and redness with a fever) can be surprisingly serious, and if said family member does not improve and requires inpatient IV antibiotics, I will most likely be accompanying them for about a week while they receive treatment and would be completely unable to blog. I humbly ask for your positive energy, prayers, well wishes, healing vibes, etc., not for myself but for their speedy recovery. The ankle is a bad location for an infection it seems, since standing or walking becomes so painful as to be nearly impossible. While we wait to see how these antibiotics work, I will try to keep up with my blog and hope for the best. I do hope all of you are having a much better day than I, magical magpie hugs to each of you!!
