Exploring Elliott

I was rambling around Elliott earlier and turned around to find myself staring at this cool vista -- the moody haze of neutrals broken by the startling red of the Sea Hole octopus (a mural which is available for sale).

Inspired, I morphed into Girl Mako (she comes in handy for these types of occasions) and turned her into Octo Girl using items purchased on Elliott. The Octo dress is from the Sea Hole, the Cosmic Johanna scaly skin is one of MiaSnow's and the Kraken helmet is from Hat Mechanic:

Girl Mako kept wandering and eventually snapped out of octo mode. Elliott is such a rich atmospheric sim -- the dim water, the ramshackle carnival, the narrow alleys, the string lights through the haze... it's great just to explore and find places you might have missed on previous visits. Elliott items pictured below: Steambrella by Weather or Not, angry Otaku glasses and Laundry Day leggings by Duboo, I <3 Elliott tee is a freebie by the landing point:

I found a new spot (new for me, anyway) behind the shops near the sim crossing. Girl Mako morphed again and waited for that red phone to ring. It never did. Starlust items pictured below: Cheeky Girl Agnes bra by Whippet & Buck (Harold), Tormented/Tortured Soul shirt by Tarnished (Elliott), dollarbie Hounds of Love skin by &Bean (Harold):

When's the last time you've really explored Elliott? Get over there and take another look!
Have fun,

Thimbles Returns in a New Location

Thimbles, a collaborative effort between Starlusty Ladies Apatia Hammerer and Melatonin Hax, mysteriously disappeared from Floyd several months ago but has resurfaced (well, sort of) in Gaylord. The newly reopened Thimbles mainstore is now comfortably located in an underground bunker just below the main piggy square. It's currently unmarked, but you'll run into it if you wander through open doorways or happen to be prowling the sewers. Or, of course, you could just take this SLurl:

Thimbles has always been a fantastic place to pick up fun, inexpensive clothing with personality, and that hasn't changed. Mel and Apatia have even introduced some new quirky pieces in the new store.

More On the Egg Hunt

It is going on. It is awesome. The eggs are huge. Some cost a few lindens, so bring a little cash -- but many are free. Get yourself out into the wilds of Starlust and start hunting these giant eggs already!

Look, they are all over: here is a bird's eye view of two corners of Harold, where you can clearly see eggs for the taking:

The Starlust landscape is swimming with eggs -- half the fun is seeing them 'hidden" around familiar landmarks, shops and environments.

You've got until April 9th to collect eggs, so... what are you waiting for?
Have fun,
