Silk Road Hunt

Hiya everyone! Tonight we explore the Silk Road Hunt IX, whose theme is Barbary Coast. This free gridwide hunt for golden pagodas offers lots of pirate themed treats, such as clothing for all, accessories, and home decor. There are some prize previews on the website, as well as all landmarks, and a few of the hints are there but mainly you will want to check the sign at each store for those. The hints are either on notecards from clicking the sample pagoda on the sign, or in hovertext on that very same pagoda. Another helpful tip is that some places use paths on the ground, pink lotuses I believe (definitely a pink flower) either a single flower or a row of several. The first stop offers a handy prize of a bracelet with a pagoda charm, which they say will help the others rez faster for you. Sometimes it helped me and other times I just had too much overall lag, but it's certainly worth trying.

First we have the female prize from Rainy Fey Creations (and yes, that does mean there is also a male gift inside) called RFC Barbary Pirate Queen Outfit. The bustier and harem pants each come in fitmesh standard sizes plus Belleza Freya, Belleza Isis, Maitreya, Slink Hourglass, and Slink Physique versions. The top and stockings are each in system layers and an Omega applier, and the pointed shoes are unrigged so you can adjust them as I have done for my Slink flat feet. Also included are the turban, hip sash, and scimitar which is the bejeweled sword on my side. I really like the rich colors and golden accents.

Next we visit AdelleArts and claim their Barbary Pirate Captain outfit, which includes the suit in a single mesh size, necklace, boots, and hat. Also included but not shown is a long black hairstyle. This is a fun prize that appears simple at first glance, but there are plenty of details like the rich textures that catch the eye.

There are male and female prizes waiting for us at Sparrow by Design, and I think you can guess which this is ;) It is called SbD The Barbary Maid for Silk Road Hunt, and first I would like to say that the boots are not borked, I am...I apologize, I forgot to re-add the right height shoe base for my feet, and had a HUD covering the bottom of my screen, so didn't realize that I made the boots look funny. The dress comes in fitmesh standard sizes plus Freya, Isis, eBody, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine. Our stockings are included in system layers and an Omega applier, while the boots are in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique. The ruffles and lacing make this look extra special, and I always appreciate having such a complete outfit.

This next prize made me wonder if pirates have such a thing as Casual Friday, because wouldn't this be perfect for that? It is from Prism Designs and called Sayida Pirate Outfit and Unisex Hat by Jezzixa, and starts with the dress for Freya, Isis, Venus, eBody Curvy, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and a standard fitted version. The ragged black bermudas are provided in system layers and an Omega applier, while the shoes are for Slink High. I feel like this is one of those outfits that could be mixed with various separates from your inventory to come up with a wide range of new looks, so feel free to get creative.

For my final look of the evening, I chose this sexy look from Carrie's Lingerie called Amyah SRH Fuchsia. Find their hidden pagoda and you can claim this in system layers plus an Omega applier, so it works with classic avatars or Omega compatible mesh bodies. The intricate lace is beautiful, and I am a huge fan of the color.

Tomorrow I have a dentist appointment pretty early, so I have decided I will take a day off from blogging. I'll be groggy when I get home, and I do not think clearly on nitrous hangover, LOL. So it's best for everyone if I take a tiny vacation, even if it isn't for a fun reason. I hope you're all having a lovely day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!
