Yes, it’s time for another Twisted Hunt! This time the theme is Strange Brew, aka all kind of poisons, absinthe, toxic — mad scientists, witch cauldrons and toxic waste galore! (The shop list and SLURLs and other information about the hunt can be found in their website. There’s no hint lists since the prize locations change so often. I warmly recommend joining the hunt group.)
Now, I’ll be honest. Green isn’t Sonya’s colour. Perhaps in some dark leaf tone, or some velvet, but screaming poison green? Yeahno. However, the days I spent hunting were completely worth it for two reasons. 1) This is Twisted Hunt, the hunt of the hunts. You don’t do this for the prizes, you do this for the hunt alone, to prove yourself that you can! It’s the trophy hunt of all the grid-wides out there! *grins* 2) I had so much fun doing this photoshoot that it alone would have made all the cam-until-your-eyes-bleed hours worthwhile!
I mean… just look at the madness! It’s awesome! *grins* Del May had these absolutely wonderful poses with steaming green bottles and vials to hold with them… this one was called Jekyll. V. appropriate. The green lament boxes twirling and whirling around her are a part of Burning Chrome’s gift, the amazing mystery potion belt is from ~Sa-eela~ and the dress is from Dark Water Designs. It’s really topless with an underbust corset <3, but I added a top from A Netherworld’s dress so I’d at least pretend to keep the pictures properly rated. The bone wings are from !ReToX!, the skin a part of Sn@tch’s gift, hair one of the two hairs in several colours Pop Tart & Urban Assault offered and the eyes are Ooze Eyes from MaXeyes. The necklaces are from Lolapop! (shorter one) and Goth1co (longer one). The picture was taken in Urban Forge’s Witch Hazel house, complete with a cauldron and fireplace!
You can’t have green strange brews without absinthe. The seductive little fairies whispering in your ear, telling you want just a sip… and another… and one more… Sn@tch’s gift was this lovely little absinthe fairy – skin, wings, ears and dress. (Hair is not a part of the hunt, it’s an old Hair Fair freebie from Tekeli-li.) Eyes are from MaXeyes and necklace from Wild Style Fashions. The piercing with ‘poison’ text beneath the lip is from Virtual Insanity. I don’t often squee for piercings, but this was pretty full of win and awesome. The hilariously brilliant cocktail glass with insane amount of poses is from Dare Designs. The cave in the background (with a monster in it) is from Stone Misery.
And here we have some darker tones with quirky umbrella of awesome. Now, let’s discuss umbrellas. ^_^ I love them. Especially crazy steampunk umbrellas or gothic lace construction parasols. This one is made by Weather! or Not? and it rains dark depression within it. Absolute must have for dead dolls and Victorian goths! The coat is from Nightshade, the skin is from Heartsick (a part of Burning Chrome’s gift), eyes from MaXeyes and the hair is an old Twisted Hunt prize from DV8, not a part of the hunt this time around. The twisted topper hat is by Burning Chrome as is traditional by now (they’ve made similar toppers for all the Twisted Hunts) and the collar is a part of DV8’s gift. The picture was taken in the monochromatic picture box by MH Creations.
And then to a more modern toxic tones of the green brew spectrum. The outfit is from DV8 and came in several colours, but I obviously picked the green one for this post. The hair is from Pop Tart & Urban Assault, eyes from Del May and skin from Heartsick (part of Burning Chrome’s gift). The bracelets, earpieces and the lament cube within the heart construction are all from Burning Chrome. The cute little twisted mouth decoration thing is from ~*D’s*~. The deadly cocktail leg strap is from Virtual Insanity. As for the props, the chair with a lot of awesome poses is from Nocturna, the green fairy statue is from Malfean Visions and the skybox is from Sugar.Snap.Me. It’s appropriately called Monster by Mar, and it’s alive, aliiiiiiive. As in it’s a dark skybox with awesome tentacles coming into the room from everywhere.
This is one of those wonderful creepy poses from Del May again, this one called Hag – Potion Thief. The steaming potion bottle she’s reaching for belongs to the set. The outfit is DV8’s male gift, except for the belt from Rasetsukoku and the oriental spine attachment from Secret Shelf’s Nihon Dreams outfit. Boots are from Heart and Sole, gasmask from DV8, hair from Pop Tart and Urban Assault, eyes from MaXeyes and skin from Heartsick (part of Burning Chrome’s gift). On her upper arm is the DV8’s end prize you get after you find your way through the maze, it’s called Zydrate Fix. The cyber blood scan bracelet is from Wild Style Fashions. The picture was taken in Abandoned Toxicity House by Firefly Fashions and the toxic waste and barrels on the left are from PQD.
There was oh so much more that I could have screenshotted and rambled about, but I figured five looks is enough. I also wanted to keep it green for this post, for fun and amusement. There -were- other colours present, honest. Now get out there and start hunting, you have the whole March to finish!
