Hunting Around The Grid

Hiya everyone! Tonight I am exploring the Around The Grid 7 Hunt, a gridwide event that lasts for 80 days (ending September 30th) and has us looking for striped hot air balloons. They are $1L each if you find the hidden one, or you can choose to purchase the prize from the one near the sign for $25L. There are hints, landmarks, and preview photos on the hunt's website, so you will want to have it open and available while you look for all these terrific prizes.

First up, we have the prize from the starting location, Go Frock Yourself. Their balloon holds the GFY-Kathleen Swimsuit, a flirty one piece that comes in Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizes. There is also a HUD included that offers 5 color choices, so you can get even more wear out of this summery treat.

Next we see the ladies' prize from {zfg} called emmersyn, a boyfriend style shirt that is loosely buttoned and has a fun plaid pattern. It is provided in standard mesh sizes as well as eBody Classic, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine versions. There is another balloon hidden with a mens' prize inside, so be sure you find the correct one by following the hint. This style makes me want to snuggle, and that could be with Xan or a stuffed animal or a playful pet in SL, it's all good.

The prize from AdelleArts is a hunt exclusive, their ATG 7 Gown with dramatic black and red paisley pattern. It comes in standard mesh sizes plus versions for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP. 

Do you love the feeling of wearing brand new lingerie? (I do!) Be sure to find the prize at Freya's Fashions then, so you can claim their FF Rachel Lingerie - Purple Balloon set. There are system layers plus an applier HUD for Belleza, Maitreya, Omega, and Slink mesh bodies, so most of us can enjoy this very affordable luxury.

My final look of the night is a midlength dress called Tammy Watercolor, found inside the @AdReNaLiZeD@ hot air balloon. The texture has so many beautiful pastel shades, gently blended and blurred into each other, with a wide belt section that looks like snakeskin. It comes in what I call the lucky 13 of mesh sizes: 5 classic, 5 fitmesh, Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink, so plenty of fits for a wide range of shapes and bodies.

Exciting things are coming in SL, as Bakes On Mesh is now live on the main grid. This means that all those system layer skins, clothing, tattoos, etc. will be able to be layered onto mesh bodies and heads, with a huge number of layers possible. I am waiting for updates from Firestorm (my viewer of choice), Maitreya, and Genus to be able to take advantage of this intriguing advancement. A new month will be upon us soon too, so as usual that will bring lots to enjoy. I cut my hand on a glass bottle that had a little chip in it, so typing is painful but I am doing my best. I am slow tonight though, and I apologize for that. Hope you're all having a wonderful day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!
