I am NOT posting the full Twisted Hunt. If you have come here for hints, multiple prize listings, or a list of shops for the Twisted Hunt September 2012, you’re in the wrong place. I’m sure the prizes are awesome, they always are.. but the Twisted Hunt is one booger of a hunt. It’s a challenge for sure – and I’m not up for it. I’m not dissing it, I’m just not up for the entire hunt. Are the prizes worth the work? Absolutely!
With that out of the way.. I’m about to show you a prize from the Twisted Hunt September 2012.
Many of the groups and news groups I am in participate in the Twisted Hunt, and I’m in these groups for a reason: I love their products. So when, say, Likka House sends out a group message saying, “Hey.. we’re in the Twisted Hunt”, my ‘Good Stuff to be Found for Free’ radar goes haywire.
The ensemble above is D-arch Angel. The main Twisted Hunt prize includes the unisex wings and outfit, though they’re billed as male and female gifts. The main prize is super easy to find.
The cape and sword are a different story, and are the prizes for the mini-hunt.
To do the mini-hunt, walk out of Likka’s House and turn right. Go to the end and pick up a HUD from the kiosk. Wear the HUD and go down into the RMK dungeons. You need to find ten cubes to fill the HUD. This is not easy, and I had to de-render damn near the entire place to find them.
Alrescha, in Baby, is shown above. This sweet group gift was given out in August, and I’m just now posting it. Although this is no longer available, join the group so that you don’t miss out in the future. You can still get Alrescha in Black and Pinky at the Likka House main Shop.

QQ has been around the grid a long time. and for good reason!
QQ offers quality fashions for men and women. These aren’t faddish clothes that will be out of fashion in a week, these are styles that have stood the test of time; with a few changes in accessories and hairstyles, you can wear these styles over and over again.
Daphne Skin Linen – Kleineschwein
Casey Spectacles Gold – Hatpins
Sylvie Mesh Hair (NEW!) – Tangerine – Wasabi Pills
Aveelo Stilettos Herringbone – SLink
Though QQ fashions are traditional in style, you can take them full tilt fantasy with the right accessories. Add horns form Rue, a wonderful drow skin from Mynerva, and hairstyle from Wasabi Pills, and step back into high fantasy.

It’s April, and you know what that means — another round of Midnight Mania Boards at FallnAngel Creations!
This pretty dress has a bohemian feel, and a slightly more modern edge than what we normally expect to see from FallnAngel Creations. The hat is included, making this the perfect dress for that Easter Parade you’ll be in, or for any other special occasion you’ll be attending in the upcoming warm months. It comes with two shirt colours, black and white, for more versatility.
This suit comes in two lengths: the shorter length shown here, and a longer length. Suitable for guys or girls, you’ll love this suit for a sporty look, or for role play in a high fantasy setting.
The pretty silk shown below is not so revealing that you’ll be afraid to wear it in public. it includes a pretty golden detail at the waist, and gold trim on the edge of the silk and on the top.
Falln Midnight Mania Boards are scattered through the main shop and annexes. For a complete listing, join the goup and pick up the note card in the group announcements.

Although I rarely do hunts form start to finish anymore due to real life time restrictions, there are real benefits to participating in a hunt, the biggest of which is finding out about new shops. Yes, the gifts along the way are nice, but the real perk to a hunt is finding an amazing shop that you would otherwise never have discovered.
I was hitting a few of the shops in the Steam6 Hunt when I ran across Brain Circuit. As I always say, don’t just run in, hit the hunt prize, and run out.. take the time to look around, you might be surprised by what other goodies the shop owner has set out for hunters.
The Steam6 Hunt prize from Brain Circuit includes outfits for men and women..yay! If you look around you’ll find more great outfits for men and women for 0L$ and others at a very low price.
In case you haven’t gotten into the Steam6 Hunt yet, directly above and below might be an enticement to do so: They’re the Steam6 Hunt prizes for women (above) and men (below) from Brain Circuit.
Pictures were taken at the Epic Toy Factory, a fun sim that is absolutely worth a visit. You’ll be dazzled, delighted. Join the fun and do the quest to find the Steam6 Hunt prize here.. you won’t be disappointed!

In case you’ve missed the past few posts, Fashion for Life is in full swing on ten sims of fabulous design, both in terms the actual sims themselves and the clothing being sold. If you love good fashion design and really love owning an exclusive colour of your favourite designers clothes, you’re missing out if you haven’t visited Fashion for Life yet.
Most Fashion for Life participating shops and designers offer clothing and skins especially designed for the event, as well as never-to-be-sold-again re-colours of favorite designs. These exclusive designs and recolours are Donation Items, which makes them very special indeed.
Shown above is FallnAnna, an RFL exclusive Donation Item. Anna is a Fashion for Life exclusive Donation Item from FallnAngel Creations, and once Fashion for Life ends, it’s gone. The Cherry (mesh) hairstyle shown above is from Wasabi Pills.
FallnToria, shown above, is also a Fashion for Life Donation Item. This silk moves and flows as you dance, truly an eye-catching ensemble. The prim snake trim at you hips hints at danger, while flowing silks keep them hypnotised. Get it at Fashion for Life and rest assured that every penny you’ve spent goes to support a good cause. You won’t get a second chance to pick up this very special dress, so pick it up while you still can.
FallnOiran, shown above is packed with options: three obi designs, two collars, a prim skirt (though you can also feel quite comfortable wearing just the system skirt). Bright, contrasting colours will make them ‘ooh’ and ‘ahh’ when you enter the room in a swirl of colourful silk. Yes, it’s a Donation Item from Fashion for Life Momentum sim sponsor FallnAngel Creations.
The FallnCiel Suit is a unisex Fashion for Life exclusive Donation Item. This soft shade of lavender will only be available during FFL, and 100% of your purchase price goes to Relay for Life/The American Cancer Society. The hat is included, a coordinating eye patch is included, boutonniere in included, a pair of long pants is included, and one other jacket style is included. That’s a lot of value for your dollar, and did I mention your purchase price goes to charity?

Fashion for Life has started off with a bang. Every year designers, shop owners, musicians, and shoppers come together to make the event better than the years before. Thank you!
Now, on to the spotlight.
::Schoen:: is a new to me shop, in German the word schon (without the umlaut that my linux os won’t let me type) means beautiful. This Kimono gown is that and more. This flowing gown can be worm longer than I’m showing it in this photo, or you can shorten it a little more because it can be modified. I love clothes I can modify to fit my personal style!
When purchasing the Kimono Gown, 100% of the purchase price goes to Relay for Life/The American Cancer Society, and owner/designer Saya Littlething has three other Donation Items to choose from, for a total of four. To see more of Saya Littlething’s work, stop by her main shop or check out her blog.
::Schoen:: is also participating in the Fashion for Life hunt with two down vests – one for men, and one for women. These vests (shown below) are only 50L$, and 100% of the purchase price goes to Relay for Life/The American Cancer Society.
If you’re a Gatcha addict, you’ll be happy (or not) to know that ::Scnoen:: has a gathca at Fashion for Life. You can win one colour of the ::Schoen:: Flat Shoes for each 30L$ play. There are six colours in all! The pink ones are shown below.

The skin shown in the first picture, Hygeia-pale 6, is also from a new-to-me shop called [My Dear], also a participating vendor in the Fashion for Life event. [My Dear] has made a special make-up version of this skin, Hygeia 7 (shown below), in tones from dark to light, that is a Donation Item benefiting Relay for Life/The American Cancer Society. The Hygeia skins have that fresh girl-next-door-who-just-came-in-from-outside look… and are absolutely charming.
All five skin tones of Hygeia 7 are shown.

It’s a new month, and a new group of Midnight Mania Board items form FallnAngels!
As always, I urge you to hurry in to FallnAngels to hit up the Midnight Mania Boards early in the month because later in the month it will be hard to get these boards to meet the number required.
Styles at FallnAngels appeal to those of us who like fantasy/Asian styles. Merfolk will be happy to see a large collection of tails, and Goreans can find clothing for slaves and free women among the racks. The Midnight Mania Boards are scattered through the shop, so take the time to look around after you hit up the boards on each floor since floors are arranged by theme, which makes shopping for a particular style easier.
Hairstyles shown are from Wasabi Pills. Many of the styles coming from wasabi Pills owner and designer MissAllDaySunday Lemon are mesh styles. One of the first things you’ll notice on the mesh styles is that there are no hair pieces cutting into your avatar. Awesome!
Poses shown in the post are from Long Awkward Pose.
I’ve been going through my animations and poses inventory to weed out some older poses that just don’t seem to work for my photos anymore and found these. They’re oldies but goodies.. so they stay.
All photos were taken at the Lofty Aspirations Gallery. Though I miss the mountains at Edgewater, I’m loving my new location and the higher prim allowance.
