It began yesterday, the biggest hunt in Second Life. The Peace on Earth Hunt has nearly 300 designers this year. You can grab your kit, and either go bit by bit, with the first stop giving a landmark for the second, or do what I did, and grab the kit and use the landmarks and hints given to visit your favorites first. I’d had a sneak peak preview a while back, just a picture, of the gown that Peony Sweetwater of The Little Black Dress was designing. It was my first choice when I landed in SL yesterday. I knew I’d love it, but I was delighted and amazed at how gorgeous it turned out in the final product. I managed to make an almost completely FREE look today, with the exception of my nail polish which is a group gift from a paid group.
Once you find the gift, which is FREE, and open the box, you get another 3 boxes to open. The “*LBD Peaceful Gown” comes in two versions, one animated, and other which isn’t for lower complexity. While you obviously can’t see the animations in still photography, if you compare pics you can see how the locations of the smaller snowflakes on the dress have moved. The way the blues, lavenders, and pinks in the dress flow gracefully from one to the other ads another dimension of shimmer and beauty to the gown. The gown comes in several sizes, so don’t feel left out of this one! There’s also a long and a regular version of the gown in each size.
- Belleza- Freya, Isis, Venus
- Slink – Physique, Hourglass
- Fitmesh – XS-XL
Also in the box for the Peaceful Gown is makeup, with left and right sides, or left or right snowflake only. Peony has included standard tattoo layers, as well as an Omega applier. I used both sides of the left and right makeup and the animated dress. I’ve left my usual glasses off so you can get a great view. Additionally, I doubled up my eyelashes, on top of my FREE “Plume” Eyelashes from ATIA, Dulce Secrets, that have snowflakes clinging to the lashes. These are also FREE and located in that big box of makeup that Dulce Secrets has out at The Free Dove.
My snowflake Jewelry is from Zombie Suicide. Zombie Suicide is still temporarily FREE to join, from the usual 200 Lindens. The set is included in two gifts, which are still available, the “:Z.S: Flake Necklace” and the “:Z.S: Flake Earrings.” They are just sparkly enough to not be obscene but add a bit of drama that makes them good for both casual and formal wear. The distance pics, I think, show off the luminosity of the jewelry best.
On my nails, I’ve painted Hello Dave’s most recent VIP group gift, “Early Wrappings.” These light turquoise nails have a silver ribbon and bow design like each nail was a wrapped gift. The Hello Dave group is 100 Lindens to join, included in which is every one of Hello Dave’s past group gifts, nearly 200, and weekly gifts to come. Also, Maia has an advent calendar currently for group members, with an additional daily gift for the season.
If you have no group space, you can snag a red version of the “Early Wrappings” nails if you are a member of the FabFree group, which is FREE to join. Hello Dave, is also running a Christmas Hunt in Moochie, which I haven’t started, but if it’s anything like the Halloween one, it will be a delicious challenge.
That leaves only one more detail to discuss my hairstyle is the 50,000 members gift from D!va Hair. There’s also a beautiful gown in the gift. The “Iris Hair” that I am wearing comes with all kinds of bells a whistles. Not only is there a color hud, but there are 2 additional hair peices that I am not wearing, braids and front over the shoulder long hair peice. The front peices aren’t for the busty, and I’m glad they are optional. You can also turn flowers on and off, and the braid “headband” which I am wearing can be toggled off as well. The best news is that the D!va Hair group is FREE to join, which makes this gorgeous hair and the included gown completely FREE!
