Original post @ Homestuff.
Hello everyone! I know I haven’t posted in ages, but there is a good reason. In case you did not know, the MEGAstuff Hunt is coming up on the first of March! Now, what’s a MEGAstuff hunt?
Normally, you’ll hear about the Womenstuff hunt being in the offing, or the Menstuff hunt going on right now, or that you just missed the Homestuff hunt. For March, however, we’re doing something a little different: all three groups are going to have a hunt running at the same time! We’re calling it the MEGAstuff hunt because, well, it’s mega!
After the cut are a few of the gifts from the designers on the hunt: I’ll put up some more in a bit!
One thing I’ve found, going through the promo copies I’ve gotten, is that there’s a surprising amount of stuff that goes well with gifts from another vendor. Here’s one example:
The crate chair on the left is from Elegant Environs, and comes with several different poses for your pleasure while your avatar’s sitting on it. On the right, we have the DECO Coffee Table’ that Sophie’s Choice is offering to hunters.
I was kind of tickled to find that these two items seemed so complementary to one another, and figured I’d try out finding some other pairings. Here’s the “Elena – Hall Table” that Stone Misery’s set out for you hunters. All the items on the bottom shelf of the table are packaged up with it, as well, so you can have some readymade tchotchkes!
And the next hunt gift that I unpacked was the Elegant Goth “Leather Formal Chair – Black”, which really wowed me with the textures:
This chair also comes with a stack of animations in it. Now how do these two things work together, you might wonder? Well…
You’d think they were intended to go together, wouldn’t you?
One thing I really love about Homestuff is the talented creators of flora that the group includes. While I don’t own a parcel at present, I still enjoy playing around with a garden in SL (you never have to wash up after, you never have to weed, and the plants stay in bloom all year round!). Hayabusa’s gift to us hunters was aimed squarely at my love of gardening. There’s a low cherry plant, and what my eye thinks is a zelkova tree, photographed here with a fountain from a prior Homestuff hunt (which I STILL have sitting around in my home: every time I have people over, someone says they love it!):
The branches of cherry blossoms are exactly what my koi pond needed. those two items are the “MKX New Composite tree” (in the back) and the “MKO Tree B for Flower M10 v3-1 tf-2″ (in the front), and again; they’re packaged together.
Sometimes, of course, trying to put things together makes you wind up with things that are both terrific but which do not really fit together. The DaD Design “Cactus Pouff” set seats up to 6 avatars in six different poses! And… doesn’t quite go with cherry blossoms, hahaha:
but the cactus make me wish I had a desert sim to give them somewhere they really would fit in.
One last view of my patio, with the idea in mind of sharing how truly big (and truly pretty!) the tree from Hayabusa is:
All of that’s Homestuff vendor gifts from the MEGAstuff hunt, starting in about, oh… 11 hours and 9 minutes from now! If you’re not sure how to find the hunt, scroll up and click on the bar at the top where it says ‘Hunters’!
Hope you all have fun with the hunt, and please be nice to the vendors: everybody’s spent a lot of time and effort getting their hunt items together!
