ELERI = MODEL – PART 2
Eleri Ethanial
http://slurl.com/secondlife/Sonas%20Isle/209/246/22

 I entered a monthly modeling contest.  Results are based on a formula of how many votes, and how much L was spent with each vote, and (I just realized…) you can vote more than once! You can vote once in each 24 hour period.  I was holding steady at #5 until just this weekend, now I’m at #7.  The top 3 have 100+ votes each… I’m at 22 o.O

So drop by and toss a vote my way if you think I can hold my own against the shiny makeup folks 😉

D’NI WORD OF THE DAY
Rehnehmtahn Later

ah (prep.) no English equivalent;  a preposition marking an object directly affected or perceived. (ex) rifoonem ah telrov efahnis = you [remember] guildsman Efanis, g’chev ah’shem khekam l’ahrtahem = and I thank you for what you have done

CAVERN/METAVERSAL EVENTS:

I went into There on Saturday and walked around the various areas. It is very sad to see this wonderful work gone… Here are a few pictures:

Sunday I went in for the Farewell Meeting to see Dot and many, many others. We were taken on a tour of the various areas and it is impressive the amount of hard work, imagination and creativity that has gone into this and such a shame to have to lose it.

EXPLORATION:

LEMONDROP’S FOREST
catseye Fride

When you link in you are greeted with this: “Welcome!! While you’re here, be sure to fly up to the treetops, visit Poopsburgh, and explore the sewers in Lemonville by gondola. If you enjoy yourself, please consider buying a box of Fairyscout Cookies in the welcome area. It goes towards keeping my island up and running. You don’t wanna know how much they charge me for this land! Have fun!! Lemondrop Serendipity!”

catseye sent me the LM for this location and I took a badly needed break from some work to go take a look. This is a wonderland of fantasy, whimsy and brilliance. Lemondrop Serendipty and Photon Pink are the makers of this eyecandy sim.

THE MACABRE HUNT – VENDOR APPLICATION
Angelfire Teebrook
Hunt: May 13 to June 3
Application due: March 30 to Liliane Despres and/or Ryoko Darrow

From the notecard:

…:::Rasetsukoku::… Presents: +The Macabre Hunt+

                                    Theme: “The  Literary Work of Edgar Allen Poe”
                                   
Start: May 13th
End: June 3rd

Applications end: March 30th

“Macabre is a quality of certain artistic or literary works, characterized by a grim or ghastly atmosphere. In these works, there is an emphasis on the details and symbols of death.”
                        – Wikipedia
                       
+The Macabre Hunt+ is a hunt for those of the disturbed, dark and twisted view on things. So much of the hunts cater to the children, the light and fluffy and the valley girls and boys of Second Life. Here is a hunt that delves into the dark and the twisted. A Hunt for those whom society fears and in all means, creeped the hell out of.

I, Liliane Despres, for this lovely hunt is your adoring Queen of the Macabre.

This hunt will only have the best. This will NOT be a “junk hunt” as so many seem to lead to. This hunt is also limited to only 100 stores. No more. No Less. Come, join us for tea.

Hunt Requirements for Vendors:
        * You MUST have an item for men AND Women. Many hunts cater to just one or the other. This hunt is equal. You must have something for the men as well as women or Unisexed (and not that silly excuse of feminine male unisex). Reason for this, many men are on these hunts and most have to rid themselves of 80% of the hunt items because it is for females.

        *Must stay within the Theme that is presented. Meaning, you can’t  just make any old silly dark thing last minute and call it good. How silly and boring. This Year’s Hunt theme is: The  Literary Work of Edgar Allen Poe
The Theme in detail: Choose from any of Edgar Allen Poe’s works to make a morbid item from. Please make it dark, bloody, creepy… Macabre!

        *Willingness to put effort into your hunt item. Anyone can slap something together. Put some love and care into your items.

        *Keep it exclusive during the hunt. Keep your product exclusive and only available for the hunters during the length of the hunt. Afterwards, feel free to sell it, if you wish.

        *Hide it.. It is a “Hunt” afterall. Many vendors in several hunts just toss the item out in the open for hunters to tp in and leave. No fun! Actually hide the item! Perferably keep it within 30 meters of your hunt sign.

        *MUST have your Hunt sign up. No hunt sign, You are booted from the Hunt.
       
        *NO MALL SPOTS!!! Absolutely not! If your store is a tiny hole in the wall, then no. If you want to do it in a CLUB. NO. NO NO NO. MAINSTORES only. Thank you.
————————————————-
Any Questions? Feel Free to ask me, Liliane Despres or Contact Ryoko Darrow. We are going to be so happy to hear and see from you.

This is the Application for +The Macabre Hunt+.

You will need to copy and paste the information from this notecard and place it in a new notecard. and have it titled +The Macabre Hunt Application+ (Store Name).

Before you decided to be apart of this hunt as one of our vendors, we need you to think about your item and our rules. You MUST be willing to do that! Also, Your store will be inspected before you are accepted. This is to prevent “Mall spots” from coming in and to also check the quality of your products. Notice: It will take us a few days to process your application. As we actually go TO your store to look around.

We thank you for your interest in this hunt!
