Home for Christmas Hunt Starts Today!

Did you score some great shopping deals yesterday during Black Friday? I hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving holiday as well. The winter season is probably the busiest time for gridwide hunts in SecondLife, and SFW is participating in several this year.

The Home for Christmas Hunt runs from 11/24/2012 – 12/24/2012 and is being run by The Cookie Jar. Each gift item will cost L$1


Product Release: Mesh Single Wall Shelves

They say that one of the best ways to maximize your space is to organize vertically instead of horizontally, and this handy little shelf will help you do just that. It’s 100% mesh and only takes up 1 prim, includes the nice soft background shadow, and comes in two flavors of wood. Its also mod/copy, so you can duplicate it for every room in your house. If you need something to put on those shelves, check the row of mesh books (pictured), also only 1 prim.

The Great Melting Pot Hunt begins today!

This one should be good. Another fine hunt administered by Gina Redangel, of Redangel Hunts, this gridwide hunt centers around the the unique multicultural roots that come together inside of SecondLife. I expect to see some really creative, ethnically-inspired gifts on this hunt and I will certainly be doing the hunt myself when I return from my trip!

The “Swimming Pool Blues” Hunt starts today!

When I first heard about the “Swimming Pool Blues” hunt, I was intrigued about the challenge of creating a hunt gift which both fit the color scheme and was worthy of the price of L$5. I’ve been learning how to create mesh models so I used this as another learning experience (I figured out how to bake ambient occlusions, if that means anything to you, and I’ve been going a little AO crazy lately.)

The beautiful photography in the frames comes from Elena Kalis, whom I found on Flickr. Her work is Creative Commons licensed, so I was able to use it in this piece. Her work is dreamy and breathtaking, and I highly encourage you to check out the rest of her photostream.

Anyway, Mauricette Morane has handpicked a select list of 24 participating locations so you should come away with a great collection of gifts from this hunt. Enjoy!
