The Arcade Gacha Events: December!

December 1st is just around the corner, and with the Winter holiday it brings about a spectacular December round of the Arcade Gacha Events!  An event that I personally can not resist, for I am addicted to gachas and the atmosphere of the old time penny arcade and carnival just makes my inner child ecstatic!

Anyone who spends even a minute with me will quickly learn that I am a total geek, a clown and a big kid.  This event could not be more appealing unless it had dancin’ gators singin’ Jambalaya with me.  The moment I step foot on the boardwalk of the Arcade location, I grin.  And not some super model grin, no, not even the stoic royal family grin, nope not me.  I lay on the huge cheesy grin because that moment I see those gacha machines, the colors and light, the new beautiful carousel, my inner child takes over and runs for the doors.

With a firm push of hand and sneaker to the doors, I immediately looked around with big eyes and bouncing heels.  The chime and ding ding clatter clang of the gacha machines sang the melody that would boost my determination to get all the shiny things to take home to Mrs. Raynier.  For how better to woo your lady fair or dashing lord than to bring them treasures aplenty, laid at their feet!

The addition of the amazing pinball machine gachas, the claw machine and fortune teller,  had me reminiscing about my childhood.  I emptied my pockets into all the machines and was extremely lucky to get a few things right away that would be in my booty of treasure to bestow upon ma cherie amour Gabriella.  No matter what it may be, if it has rainbows or pink, I have to get it for Gabby!

A few machines were not so nice and I called them several curses in French and may have kicked them a time or twenty.  But that is the fun of the gachas, you might get really lucky on your first round, you may still have that elusive shiny item not come to you after 583 tries!  Yeah, I get the gacha fever, and my inventory swells due to it.  So I hope like me, you planned ahead and tucked away your gacha monies, because this round is beyond my vocabulary to describe properly, you simply have to see it to believe it!  Oh and don’t tell Mrs. Raynier, she isnt gettin the tiara, it’s mine!

Petites Kingdom

I remember the first days as a new resident to SecondLife, I was completely lost and confused. I had come from a very heavy roleplay background, mostly fantasy and mythological based. Creating characters like Sidhe, Dragons, Centaurs, Satyrs and other preternatural beings was highly appealing to me, and when I stepped foot in Second Life, that was the first thing I wanted to do.

My pursuit for fantastical things was a rough start, but once I dug around using search I came across what to me was the foundation of my fantasy based Second Life. Fallen Gods, Inc. is where I bought my very first fantasy skin, a dark nearly black skin that was for my otherwordly creation that was basically made of shadows, thus the dark skin. Fallen Gods was the choice for me, and I was highly impressed by everything within the store and the detailed island that the store resided upon. When I think fantasy, I think Fallen Gods so when Petites came out and Fallen Gods was on board with the amazing frenzy that is Petites, I had to get one.

Unfortunately the female Fallen Gods Petite avatars were out first and the male came later, so I waited very impatiently for the release. When release day finally came I rushed to get mine and what you see below is my creation using the Petites avatar to create a very wimsical and bardish Fae being, Riley.  We even created a little home for them on our sim.

Gabriella and I have had a great time creating our petites since their release, and we are always seeking out fun things to use for them or add to their very tiny yet still huge wardrobes!

But enough about my love for Fallen Gods and Petites, let’s get to something of complete amazement in a small package. I’m talking about Petites Kingdom a petite sized sim made especially for the wee little ones!

For me, Petites offer up the whimsy and wonder that we lose when we move from childhood to adulthood. Those wonder filled moments that have you imagining the dead tree down the street is really a dragon in disguise, the backyard is a treasure filled forrest that faeries live within and you swear you can see them out of the corner of your eye, but they are too fast and wisk away on colorful wings, giggling at your slow reaction compared to their swift movements from flower to flower!

Even if you are a bigguns aka a non-petite normal sized avatar, come check out the amazing build of the Petites Kingdom sim. I encourage you to see the fantastic images done by the ultra talented Strawberry Singh on her official blog here.

Now on to even more spectacular small sized fun that is sure to be hugely rewarding! The Crystal Hunt will be starting on the opening day of the Petites Kingdom sim. on Saturday, September 29 @ Noon SLT. The hunt will start at noon SLT with celebrations starting at 3pm SLT and going until 9pm SLT. Big or small all are welcome!

Here is a taste of what you can find in your adventure!

I had the absolute pleasure of spending the early afternoon with BellaStarr Fhang.  I have admired Bells blog ohhmaiblog and her exceptional photography for some time.  I love to see what great looks she will put together, how imaginative her scenes can be and the way they simple have such life.  Along the journey of watching her blog, her images have evolved and become better and better.

But have you heard, she has opened a great little cozy pose shop called evolve.  I am enjoying her poses so much, they are fun and well created and very suited for photographs!   I urge you to head over to her shop in world and take a look.  Watch for her upcoming releases for Super Bargain Saturday too!
