Bonus! Hunt Addendum


After getting her attack snowman from the Kiyomizu Mall Winter Hunt, Lludmila was wandering around Kidd's Factory and just happened to look out over the sim and saw a car dealership.  She thought she'd go look because they seemed interesting from a distance.  They are amazing cars - vintage model cars and trucks.  There's a go-cart track as well, but we all know what happens when Lludmila gets in a vehicle.  She invariably ends up in the water.

But, Lo!  She saw a free soap box racer!  It comes out of the box looking plain, but it has a HUD for color and other mods.  It's fabulous!

Fresh out of the box ... with complimentary helmet!

The Sign of the Cat - Cross Posting

Kiyomizu Mall is having a winter hunt to find ninja cat.  Some are very very tiny and might require some looking. Some are right out front. A couple of the cats you will have to visit the main stores to find their cats - but it's totally worth going, especially for the attack-snowman (see Virtual Vagabond) and the kimono.

There are also lucky boards all up and down the mall - and if you have the time, just wander around the walkways and shrines and admire the view.

The seat is color change, several sits, resizable.

Skybox with on/off snow, couples pillows, shelves,
fireplace, framed snowman, & glass tree from Shun.

Texture change rug from Hikaru.  Lludmila likes this texture
and the painted hide one, but it might offend her veggie friends.

Now, that's better!  Another texture.

A Little Christmas Magic

Skating obstacle course.

Kathy makes her own date under the stars.

The Looking Glass sim has not only the most amazing scenery, but they've put out a lovely skating area with skates, snowballs, animations, etc. in their new shop area.  Also, at the bottom of the Christmas tree are some gifts.

Kathy is going to wait up for Santa ...

What? No new graphics card? Take that, Santa!

Don't mess with me. I've been drinking nuclear waste.

Vanish and reappear in a shower of gold sparks!

Open Plan

The, ummm, withdrawing room?

Upstairs, downstairs, in my lady's chamber.

Some Christmas things and some surprises!

Check out the 'air' dwelling at [dls].  Talk about an open plan!  It comes furnished and is perfect for a location with great vistas because you won't miss any of the landscape. You can pick it up for 100L.
And while you're there, there's an advent calendar, several hunts, lucky chairs, and a sweet little pile of freebies.

There's No Place Like Home ...

We go on and on about how weary Lludmila is off clothing and now she collects homes and home furnishings.  Well, the holidays have brought some brilliant additions to her collection.

The first thing she saw was the new house available from Trompe Loeil for a mere 188L.  She spent two days trying to find a time when the sim was not full.  You all know what Collabor88 can be like at normal times - well, it was crazy.  Today it looked like only 32 avs milling about, so you can probably tp in and marvel at the miniature version - if you have the patience to wait out the lag.  It comes in four colors.

Lludmila's not happy about this house or anything!

It comes with optional snow - and Awen thoughtfully
turned winter shortly after it was installed.


What's better than a cheap gorgeous house? A free one, of course!  Ionic has a winter house as a hunt gift and, like all of Ionic's offerings, detailed and pure delight.  Lludmila was drooling over the furnishings, but the governor in the spending portion of her brain kicked in.   She's using this as a skybox, but the functional door is also a work of art.  Sigh!

Getting all excited again over a new house - and then
she just puts the same old crap in it.

The sunsets will be fab-oo from up here.

Bathrooms should have windows.  No, really, just try
using one in RL(tm) in a power outage.

Good old days table set - Pepto-Bismol pink waitress outfit from
FIN-Relive the Fifties, thanks to that group gift of 100L store credit.
Okay, so sometimes Lludmila likes clothes.

The above explains why the governor kicked in - it wasn't free or anything, but Lludmila just couldn't resist that knitting animation.  It's from one of our favorite places: [kusshon].  The table comes with the two chairs, a loveseat, the knitting bag, table props, and a prop-giver.  There are a few places where Lludmila would like to have everything in the shop.  Ionic and [kusshon] are two of them.*  If she doesn't want everything at Trompe Loeil it's only because that store is so big - but she would like a great deal of it.

*Here's another place: Post - holy cow!  Got that rustic chapel thing/hunt prize from there - so many houses, so little space!  Sweet mother of mercy, stop me before my inventory gets over 50,000.

All's Fair

Pull the strings and win a prize!

We just love these little fairs!  This one has some features we haven't seen before.  It makes for an entertaining little diversion.

Make your own cotton candy!

What was that thing about never eating anything

Bride of Shameless Self-Promo

Recently added to my marketplace shop, Unslutty and Undead, is a gesture that has already confused my friends.  However, some snarky soul has already "purchased" it, so maybe someone gets it.

I was telling my husband about it on our way to lunch one day (I made the pose weeks ago but had neglected to upload it) at our local Mexican restaurant and outside was a banner with, sure enough, the Dos Equis guy, leaning forward with that "most interesting" look on his face.  The banner was advertising some combination of the beer and probably tequila with the "I don't usually ... but when I do" phrase.  This, I thought, was hilarious.  What serendipity!

I spent literally minutes forming a gesture around it.  (If you have ever made a gesture, you know it can be ridiculously easy depending on how many steps you put into it.)  The wheeze is, you start the gesture by typing  "/meme" into chat and the pose kicks in.  Then the chat appears: "I don't usually ..." and you have 5 seconds to type in whatever it is you don't usually do (but I bet you do anyway) before it follows up with: "... but when I do ..." and then you have ten seconds to type in your hilarious punchline.

If you have thought of quite a few, you can do one after the other.  You and your friends can stand around and try to come up with more to top each other.

If the pose says something else to you (I dunno, constipation?), you could always change it to say anything you want - or if five seconds isn't enough, you can add more time.  I cut my gesture-making teeth on mod-able gestures I had in my inventory.  Feel free to do the same with any of mine.

Left to right: Godzmila, Bride of Lludenstein, Wolfmila, Lludenstein, and  Llugosmila.

Other items are available - and the Classic Hollywood Monster Poses set seems to be distinctly popular.  I only wish I could see some avatars using them.  Sure, I think they're cute on Lludmila, but I'd like to see someone else in them for a change.  If you have any of my poses or gestures and you just happen to be taking photos of them, send them to Lludmila Mirrikh inworld or link to my Flickr page and let me know.  I'd get just the biggest kick out of it!  Share!  Share!

Saturated Color

Art in 2 and 3 dimensions by Toysoldier Thor.

There's another brilliant art exhibit just starting at the Paris Metro Gallery and I recommend you don't miss this one.  Of course, it isn't just the art that is so fascinating, but what the couture elves at Paris Metro will do with it to make some of it into gowns ... which are free.

Oooo, color!

Even more brilliant color by JudiLynn India.

Panorama Gallery

Gallery supporter Timo gives Lludmila a tour.

After giving up (again) on Arkhamville, Lludmila received an invitation to the Panorama Gallery at its new home.  Although the Boorama invitation was for later, she thought it would be a good time to visit when the lag was low!  Coincidentally, one of the gallery supporters was there and they chatted as they wandered around the new exhibit of RL(tm) photography and poems.

The Panorama has been open for quite a while and hosted many exhibits and live music events.  Be sure to join their group!

 The current exhibit is some RL(tm) photography by Eliza Cassaboun, some of which incorporate poetry.

So realistic Lludmila could almost walk right into RL(tm)! Heh!

Photography set free for use!

As well as art, there is space for meetings, a garden, and a set up for taking your own photos!  Coming up Saturday, 27 October (tomorrow, in fact) is the Boorama!  Rara Destiny appears at 4 am and Lefty Unplugged at 5 am SLT.  Wear your best Halloween outfit; there's a 500L prize for best Male and Female.

The new location opening in September.

The Shop

Just a few things ...

In a previous post I talked about making poses - and how entertaining that has become (if a an expensive hobby after a while).  I have now got a tiny marketplace shop up and running with my mostly free poses and gestures.  I'm still a beginner with this, but I really enjoy sharing fun things with my fellow denizens of the virtual world.

Classical poses (spear not included)

The classic poses I made, which aren't perfect (some are wobbly), are also available for free either at my pied-à-terre in Awen or message me (Lludmila Mirrikh) inworld and I'll drop them in your inventory.

More are on the way - I'm doing some film star poses, mostly silent movie iconic poses like the Harold Lloyd hanging from the clock pose in the shop.

Unslutty and Undead, the Shop!
