One of my first thoughts, when I thought to organize The Grow Your Awareness Hunt, was that my goal was not to educate what autism is and isn’t. Sure, there’s a checklist of diagnostic criteria which must be met, but what’s not there in that definition is the unlimited ways in which these few symptoms manifest themselves, influence the lives of a person with autism, and the severity of the impact. So, I love the metaphor of autism as a rainbow. A rainbow is bright, beautiful, and complete.
This hunt prize from Moonstar on the Sea is all of these aspects, plus it’s just flat out super fun! Included in this outfit are the bright and sparkly animated wings, the rainbow dress, Omega applier white lace panties, necklace, and bracelet. I did leave off the jewelry in this post so I could bring you news of an awesome deal on another jewelry set, but they are there in the box, are resizable, and they match perfectly! The dress comes sized for Maitreya, both Slinks, both Tonics, and all 3 sizes of Belleza.
So, as I’ve been doing, when I blog the hunt gift from a store, I like to do the write up on the store. I first found Moonstar by the Sea about a year ago when I bought an outfit at the then Fashion Dazzle Event, now just Dazzle Event. As I do when I find something I like at an event, be it a gift or great deal like the outfit I had purchased, I visit the store. If you’re a deal finder this is the store for you. Everyone who visits is given a gift to find somewhere in the store. There are several group gifts for the FREE to join group, as well as lucky letters and midnight/mini mania boards. If you’re a fan of the news and gift groups, there are several gifts for those as well, as well as a gift at The Free Dove. One other thing, there’s an affiliate area for Alli & Ali Designs (hair) that has a lucky letter chair for that. Last time I passed through it was a super cute Harley Quinn style. I’ve covered Moonstar a few times before, so there’s always the tag to check on this blog for more examples of her designs.
These shoes which just go beautifully are the hunt prize from Shoe-ddiction. I actually approached the designer of Shoe-ddiction when I blogged a purple awareness ribbon pair of shoes that she has at The Free Dove and asked if she would be willing to do a set for this hunt. She kindly agreed and came up with this bright, colorful, and happy pair of shoes in all the colors of the rainbow with an autism awareness puzzle design on the ribbon. She even added in Maitreya and Belleza sized shoes for us as the original awareness ribbon design shoe came only in Slink! I’m really grateful that she joined us at the last minute via request! It was very heartwarming to me. The Shoe-ddiction store’s group is FREE to join, and there is a male and female group gift available. There are 3 lucky letters which also cycle in some men’s shoes, as well as female shoe gifts for the Mesh Avatar Appearance Maniacs and Third Life groups. Shoe-ddiction also has a couple of gifts at The Free Dove, and is a regular participant in the mini-hunts.
Hit Redeux Yet?
Redeux is an event that you’ll want to subscribe to. Group members of the FREE to join group can scoop up over 40 gifts. Gifts are great, but it’s the sales you won’t want to miss! I was looking for something for my hair or face to fit my fairy theme when I decided to take a break and hit up Redeux. So, at the Spyralle Stall, I happened to notice that she had the entire “Spring Leaf Jewelry” set that I’ve had on my to buy list for months for only 50 lindens. That’s the necklace, earrings, and 2 bracelets, I immediately snatched it up. However, then I noticed this mask which was next to it, and is also 50 lindens and it was just so perfect for my fairy look that I grabbed it as well. There’s a HUD included with this Forest Edge Mask that offers you the choice of 4 metals and 6 leaf textures. I chose the texture that matches up with the Spring Leaf set, but if you’ve got any of Spyralle’s clothing with the gorgeous fractal textures, 4 of the choices match up with some of her most popular color combinations. Oh, and remember the gorgeous Owl Moon dress I wore here? My favorite one of the Owl Moon dresses is on sale for just 30 lindens, regular price 200 lindens! While this isn’t the prize from Spyralle, the Park Place store of Spryalle does have a lovely hunt prize for the Grow Your Awareness Hunt to be found!
The butterflies on my face are animated as well. I found them in that huge box of goodness that is the Dulce Secrets 2017 Collection for The Free Dove. My nail polish is from Mani-Pedi, and from one of the coolest collection ideas I’ve seen! There’s a series of palettes all based off of Crayola’s big 64 box, that I had in elementary school, and likely any other American reading this did as well. You can buy a single color group, like the greens I am wearing for 70 lindens, or you can buy the mega hud with all 8 palettes, and all 64 colors for 550 lindens.
The rest of my makeup, my skin, and my hair (free lucky chair win!) has all been blogged before, so consult the style card. I want to urge you to participate in The Grow Your Awareness Hunt, and to pass the generosity forward by helping at least one person with Autism feel safe, accepted, and included!
