Peace On Earth Hunt 5 Announced

Just in case you haven’t heard, one of the looked-for events of the year is coming in December to Second Life:  the fifth annual Peace On Earth Gridwide Hunt.  This is a time when many of the Grid’s designers offer some very nice goodies to customers as a thank you for their patronage during the past year.

Shoppers:  the hunt begins on December 1, and will run through the close of Epiphany (January 6, 2013), the traditional end of the season of Christmas.  If it’s anything like past years, all you need to do is find the globe with a dove.  The goodies can be cunningly hidden, so pay attention to the clues.

Vendors:  participation, according to the blog, will be by invitation only this year.  The hunt organizers have created such a popular monster that requests to participate is strong.

Be sure to watch the hunt blog for information.  I’ll see you on the hunt!

Peace On Earth Hunt

Yes, this is me. I'm not always white and nerdy, you see....

Right at the moment, I’m cruising through the annual Peace on Earth Hunt.  With over 200 stores and venues, I think this is one of the largest hunts we have in Second Life.  I’ll say for sure that I’m discovering lots of interesting stores along the way, and I’m making notes for both fashion and decor as I go.

If you’re interested, here is the list of hints and landmarks.  Just start at number 001 and proceed through the list.  Look for the ball with a dove flying over the Earth and click on it; everything is free.  The hunt runs through January 3, so you have time before it shuts down.

 

Peace on Earth at Sascha’s and Runway Café

The quest for new places has taken me to the Runway Café in The Lady Resort.  The resort is a large, elegant venue for meetings, shows, or just for getting away.  It has four suites and two penthouses for rent (suites L$1,000, penthouses L$2,000 per week).  But the main attraction is the café, which is appointed in lots of warm maple or cherry wood, with a discreet bar in one corner and two levels, the floor and a balcony.

A runway, of course, is the place where you model couture, and I’m modeling a gift from the current Peace on Earth Hunt.  This is the Roodvosje gown from Sascha’s Designs, named for Roodvosje Rosse, one of Sascha Frangilli’s main employees.  (She’s the one you often hear from on weekdays when she’s calling the group to come and check out the current specials or the latest gowns.)  This color is special for the hunt, but it is available in several other colors, as well as Sascha’s trademark large choice of skirt sizes in the package.  Lots of glittery trim, full-length opera gloves, and a very nice tall collar to frame the face combine for a wonderful holiday gown.  I wear it here with a review gift from Alice Demonia, her Faelin pumps.  With these shoes, you get your choice of five different heels from wedge to stiletto, and a large number of color combination possibilities, leather finishes, etc. in a HUD design that couldn’t be simpler.  Heavy gold chain jewelry and a nice updo complete the look here.
