Second Life Steals, Deals, and Freebies: The Good Eggs Hunt

I wanted to alert my blog readers to a free Easter egg hunt in Second Life, where you can pick up both some nice outfits and some great home and garden items.

To get started, teleport here, and click on one of the two Good Eggs Hunt signs:

The starting point of the Good Eggs Hunt

You will receive a wearable Easter basket, and a HUD which gives you the locations of all the stores participating in this hunt. There are six different colours of eggs at each store for you to find, and all of the hunt prizes are free!

Everything Vanity Fair is wearing in the picture below is a hunt prize from Poème: top, skirt, sandals, the funky sunglasses—even the earrings, which come in silver and gold versions!

In the next picture, Vanity is modeling two hunt prizes in her 1950s kitchen: the Celebrate Spring retro dress from Cog & Fleur (which comes with an eight-colour HUD and optional sheer flexiprim overskirt, which is quite lovely), and the Blair pumps in pink from Lindy Modern & Retro Shoes. Lindy has six Easter eggs to find, and each contains pink women’s shoes in various styles (although in this picture, for some reason they are looking a tad on the purple side!):

The Good Eggs Hunt will end on Sunday, April 12th at 12:00 p.m. Second Life Time/Pacific Time, so please don’t wait! Happy hunting!

Happy Easter! (Stuff I Accidentally Bought in Second Life, #2,907 in a Series)

Ever buy something accidentally in Second Life? Well, I visited the Easter Town sim in Second Life, and at the landing point I saw this sign:

I clicked on the sign to see what was in the package, and then my fingers tripped over the keyboard and I accidentally bought it! Thought I may as well wear the damn thing.

The egg basket with the matching pink bow was a hunt prize from RC Cluster from one of The Bunny Hop hunts years ago! It comes with a built-in AO (like most of Redd Columbia’s quirky gadgets) that not only holds the basket, but lifts my other arm to my eyes as if I am searching for eggs! Very cute.
