|Let's get Twisted!|
Second Life is a free online virtual world you can explore with an avatar (digital person, animal or thing) that you customize for yourself. There are scavenger hunts across the grid in Second Life that provide you with stuff if you don't want to spend real money. You look for a specific object (dictated by the hunt theme) and when you find it you get a prize - free furniture, clothing, skins, animations, etc. for your avatar. The Twisted Hunt is a gothic-themed, creeptastic hunt boasted as the hardest hunt in SL. And it is. The object (the puzzle box from Hellraiser) is small and dark-colored (this year it's blue) and placed in corners and crevices that are murder to find. There are over a hundred merchants participating in the hunt, delicious prizes, and the chance to make many new online friends. I always end up falling helplessly into it for the good part of the hunt month. This year it's through September.
Here is my avvie before the hunt, wearing a skin from Dilly Dolls. (I'm going to include vendor names in case a fellow hunter stumbles across the blog.)
And two completely different looks inspired by the skins I've found on the Twisted Hunt.
Finally, head to hoof in hunt prizes.
Hooves: Dilly Dolls
Necklace: House of Rain
Hair: Gauze(store) Pike(style) in Coal(color) - not hunt.
That's enough about mine. What's your favorite time-suck?
