Autumn is Coming

Oh wait, that’s supposed to be “Winter is Coming,” isn’t it…  errmmm…  Anyway…

Autumn IS coming.  The air really is cooling off.  The trees really are starting to change.  September is upon us and the Summer Harvest Hunt is in full swing.  The Ego Co.’s latest hunt is going strong and it’s a bountiful harvest.  Between the new goodies, the seasonal view off her back porch and Elymode’s gorgeous WL setting, Chloe got a little lost in the moment.

Summer Harvest Hunt

Hi folks!  Trying to get my blog on with a quickie post about The Ego Co.’s latest hunt, the Summer Harvest Hunt.  The hunt runs from September 1 – 21 and features items that hope to invoke a feeling of cooler, lazy days before autumn ushers in the crisp bite of the winter months.  The poses, pants and jewelry are all hunt gifts.

Color is Fluid

The 52 Weeks of Color Challenge fizzled faster than it did last year.  *sigh*  Well, I’m still trying to catch up (slowly) and this is my Pueblo.  Yes, there’s actually some pueblo in there!  It’s in the middle part of the ombre on my RezIpsa Loc tights.  Really!

A last minute reminder for those of you out there who haven’t made it yet:  The first round of Fluid is still going on!  You’ve only got two more days to get over there, though!  This pose is from Pekka’s sweet little Eva pack and I just love it.  It helps look Chloe look at least a little embarrassed about this color debacle.

Life is Fluid

It’s time!  Fluid is a few hours into its first rotation!  Visit the website, swing by the sim, do some shopping at the pose and prop – centric, two week event.  The summer themed items are SO cute.  The creators have really outdone themselves!

Chloe sneaked into the fortune teller’s chair from Cleo Designs to see if she could tell what’s to come in our lives.  I hope the cards had something good in store for her, ’cause my tea leaves weren’t all that promising!

There are dunk tanks, group poses, couples poses, sea creatures, carousels and more at Fluid for the next two weeks.  After that, the new rotation and new fun will begin.

The Sky is Falling!

Nah, I guess it’s not really falling, is it?  But it sure feels like it sometimes!  Things are crazy here- some good, some not so good.  What’s falling on me right now?  Prep work for my new teaching job!  So yay for that, but like all teaching gigs, the unpaid prep hours tend to get lengthy.  The result?  A sadface and much less time with my peeps on Plurk and inworld.

However, I still have my little feelers out there in SL-land, so I have a couple of things to tell you about.
The Mesh Around hunt is almost over!  You’ve got a couple more days to go and get all the meshy goodies.  (Oh!  And on the mesh note, I have made a couple of tweaks to my shape after reading some blog posts and tutorials and am much happier with how things are fitting.)
As Mesh Around wraps up, Fluid begins!  Fluid is a pose and prop centric, theme-based event that cycles on two-week rotations.  So, what that means is that we have 12 designers creating around a theme (this rotation is Summer Fun) and their items will be available at Fluid for their two week period.  So expect to find some great beach, amusement park and picnic poses, props, animations and furniture at this rotation, which begins June 15th and runs until June 30th.  I’m using one of the cute hula poses from Bent as part of my drama llama, Chicken Little pic.

Going on a Mesh Spreeeeee!

Mesh Around starts tomorrow!  Well…  later today, I guess.  For the sake of clarity:

Mesh Around starts at noon (SLT) on June 1st!
That’s soon!  Are you excited?  You should be!  But you’ve got 15 days to get all of your gifts, so don’t worry about lag or crowds or anything like that.  Now, the hunt starts at .evolve., but there is a list of participants (hints too!) on the Ego Co. website, so you can bounce around as you like.  The amazing BellaStarr Fhang has been working so hard to organize all of this for us, so make sure you send her some love when you get a chance.

Meshing Around in Pistachio

Mesh, mesh and more mesh!  This hunt is so great.  It’s a really perfect opportunity to try out mesh clothing and to bring attention to decorative mesh objects and structures.  I have a good number of mesh items in my inventory, but I’m still finding that I have some trouble fitting mesh clothing.  I’ve been procrastinating on really figuring out the fit and finish and have mostly been depending on alphas to make things work for me.  I’m going to take another look at the standard sizing and see if I can’t get some of my mesh glitches worked out.  I will report back about this little venture!  But, in the meantime, enjoy some Sakide and Trompe Loeil gifties from the Ego Co.’s Mesh Around hunt:

Oh!  And I’m totally cheating and skipping ahead on Luna Jubilee’s 52 Weeks of Color Challenge, Part Deux.  This is serving as my pistachio.  With all the green in the background and the perfect dots on the furniture, you can hardly tell that the sweet little flower-patterned dress is the lightest shade of pistachio as well.  Anyhoo…  Meshy pistachio.  Close enough for government work.
