Steampunk Wonderland

Hiya everyone! Tonight I have some prizes to show you from the Steam XIII Hunt: STEAMpunk Wonderland. It is a free gridwide hunt with 71 stops, so you will definitely want to get started right away if you haven't done so already since it wraps up at the end of the month. Because of so many different types of stores involved, the prizes range from mens and womens clothing to home decor and accessories and much more. There are hints at the stores on the hunt signs which also have a sample of the gear you'll be searching for, and the website has the links to the stores in case you need them on hand. Several of the stores have mini hunts, so you just may get lost down a rabbit hole or two, plan accordingly ;)

I did mention mini hunts for a good reason, as our very first look here is at one of 12 prizes from the Mountain Rose mini hunt. Just follow your hints in each notecard, and enjoy exploring some fun scenery to find all the gears and claim many generous gifts. This outfit is the Steampunk Alice Outfit, including the dress in standard fitmesh sizes plus earrings, headband, ankle boots, and even the white rabbit doll with built in holding pose. A quick note about the headband, when I added it the attach point was my right hand so I had to attach to my nose instead and edit it into place, but it really wasn't difficult to do and I am no expert at that sort of thing so you can do it too :) The boots are for default avatar feet, no special mesh feet required and you can just remove or hide your usual mesh tootsies which is what I opted to do.

Storybook Cats is offering a more grownup Alice dress, their SBC Steampunk Wonderland Gown for the ladies (separate mens prize in the gear next to it). This lovely sheath style comes in fitmesh standard sizes and Belleza, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique versions so you can get a nice fit for most shapes and sizes. Personally I enjoy visiting here to pet their KittyCats! cats, dozens of which are running loose and make the area a feline paradise.

Next we visit Technicolor Dolls to find their gear, which contains this Wonderland Revisited Set. The dress and shoes (socks are attached to the shoes) are each provided in standard mesh sizing, so try them on and see what fits you the best. Those coppery colored gears look so pretty against the blue of the dress, and the heels echo that color to really pull things together. 

Prism Designs has a well hidden gear for us as well, which rewards us with their Prism Agatha Steampunk Coat Skirt Hat Goggles by Jezzixa. The maxi skirt and tailcoat are each included in standard mesh sizes, while the top hat and copper goggles each have built in resize scripts for a perfect fit. The copper band on the hat made me think my hair was poking through at first, LOL, the color match threw me for a loop. This is quite an elegant gift that I am happy to have found.

My last look of the night is from Eclectic Stars, their Temperance - Steamy Wonderland gown. She comes in sizes for Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus, eBody, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine, with an intriguing pattern on the full skirt with gears, cheshire grins, card suits, flamingos and more. What did you notice first?

If you are a fan of the card game Uno, and good with simple math in your head, I'd like to suggest you try their new Dos card game (might be a Target exclusive or was released there first). It involves two piles instead of one, different types of wild cards, and combining cards to get rid of your hand faster. My family and I played earlier and it was entertaining to say the least :) We learned a few things as we went along and reread those directions several times, but all in good fun. I hope you're all have a wonderful weekend ahead, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!
