“In the meadow, we can build a snowman.”
I didn’t actually spend the day building this snowman, thankfully X-Clusive Animations did that, but I did spend it rounding up a bunch of goodies to show off, including the snowman, and about 2 hours of loading up all of my poses on a pose stand. That was worth it though, it’s all done. So from there, I set out a winter scene and frolicked my way through snapping some pics. I did forget to turn up my graphics settings, and I’ll hope you’ll forgive me not redoing the shoot, but I played around and took so many, and after 2 hours of organizing poses, I am just tired of them! I didn’t want to make you wait another day or two for me to get around to another photo session before sharing my goodies!
“Gone away is the bluebird
here to stay is a new bird”
When I saw this sweater on the Peace on Earth 10 Hunt prize guide, I added it near the top of my list of stops, I’m fairly certain I’ll never get through all 287, so I had to make sure I made a bee-line for the ones that fit my tastes best. I love how saucy this little turtleneck is, although the Michigan girl in me thinks I’d have to be an Eskimo to be wearing it out in the snow without some UnderArmor on at least. Thankfully, even with snow, my 2nd life is fully climate controlled and I was more than comfortable in this cozy sweater by Dallas MacKenzie. Sizes for the PoE10 version of the Avery Sweater are:
- Slink – Physique and Hourglass
- Tonic – Fine, Curvy, Curvy 1
- Belleza- Freya, Venus, Isis
- 5 Standard sizes
- Alpha Layer
“snow is glistening
A beautiful sight”
Not just the snow is glistening, my silver jeans have a bit of shine to them, and the beautiful sight I’m referring to is how these jeans from Alter frame my hiney! Alter is another stop on the PoE10 Hunt, but I’m not showing off their gift (at least not yet, I do love it.) Instead, while I was there I noticed that they had these silver jeans up as a gift for the Teleport Hub group. I felt the high waist and light color was the perfect compliment for the Avery sweater, and it was my first choice when making up this outfit. Academically I know the A on the back pockets is for Alter, but I can’t help but think they really mean “amazing ass.” As an aside, my Santa thought so as well and wouldn’t stop staring! The “Rossi Skinny Jeans” come in all sizes for Slink, Belleza, and Maitreya mesh bodies. The Teleport Hub group is 10 lindens to join.
It’s been a week, so I’m sure any fellow gift lovers have seen Truth’s latest group gift hair, but it was instant love for me! This “Ginerva Hair” is Truth‘s November VIP gift. The headband is optional and has a color hud for when do you do wear it, There are several ways to style the hair via the style hud, and even an option to add in other bangs. Of course, as with all of Truth’s VIP group gifts, all of the color huds are included. The Truth Group is 350 lindens to join.
A+ for Advents
I’ve got a few things I’ve picked up here and there as Advent gifts from various designers. I did the Missy Math on Hello Dave group membership to include Advent gifts just yesterday but pulled out another Advent gift that went perfectly with this outfit. These nails are Hello Dave’s Day 4 Advent gift.
My eyeshadow is an Advent gift from Dulce Secrets. The “Aurora Eyeshadow” is full of soft swirls that really do remind me of the Northern lights. The Aurora Eyeshadow comes in standard tattoo layer, Omega, Catwa, and LeLutka appliers. No group is required to claim the Dulce Secrets Advent gifts, and past days are still available. Making this and the other 6 gifts currently on the calendar completely FREE!
I adore this rustic log reindeer that is the day 1 Advent gift from HHVET Victoriana, even if he won’t budge when I try to ride him. HHVET’s Advent is FREE for all, as is their group with lots of furniture goodies, and I’ve been delighted with all that I’ve seen so far. There’s also a lucky board, a midnight mania, and two mini mania boards to try your luck on when you visit. They are also participating in several hunts, so be ready to leave after a good romp through the store with your Santa packs full!
“We’ll have lots of fun with Mr. Snowman”
The kiddies won’t be knocking down this snowman, however, as he’s rated Adult. There’s one of three things going on, I’ve gone 3 times to try X-Clusive Animations Advent, each time I’ve walked away with this “Frosty the Frisky Snowman” when I’ve sat on Santa’s lap. So either I’m adventing wrong, or I’m unlucky to get the same prize, or I’m lucky to get the same prize since they are transfer and I’m able to pass them onto my friends. Either way, day 4, 5, and 7 gifts were this cute snowman with a naughty side, who happens to sit innocently out in the yard outside my Christmas cabin. He’s loaded with a few hundred adult poses and rezzes a blanket so you don’t have to worry about sensitive chapped parts from the snow. No group is required, so Frosty or whatever you happen to win from X-Clusive Animations by sitting on Santa’s lap is completely FREE! If you do happen to get doubles, be sure to give away the spare, not sell it, as that is pretty uncool to do someone spreading holiday cheer by profiting from their generosity. Pay it forward, instead of stabbing someone in the back.
Now I’m off to conspire about tomorrow and dream, if not by the fire, at least somewhere warm! Happy hunting if you’re off to grab goodies!
