I’m not a huge fan of sunshine, more of the hiss-bright-melting variety. Not that I’m that big a fan of -30 Celsius frost either, mind you. But. This is about sun and how I suddenly knew exactly what kind of a post I’d make with the three hunts and some I’ve been meaning to blog. The hunts in question are: Seasons Hunt: Summer, Waffle Fox Hunt and Poupee Hunt, all full of awesome things that I’ll no doubt return to later.
Let’s start our story! Here’s our oblivious heroine on her way to the beach. She has a new summer dress by Paper.Doll (SH), hair covered by butterflies by Shag (SH) and a new bike by What Next (SH). What could possibly go wrong?
Skin is by AddiCt (SH) and the adorable waffle rings are by EY.NO (WFH). The house is by L2 Studio (SH), the paintings, deck chair and pillow by LISP Bazaar (SH) and the adorable puppy girl doll by Naminoke (PH).
Settling on the summer swing by Glitterati (SH) and indulging in a berry drink by Poche (RandoMuseum), lounging about in the sun, ignoring the worried looks that the lifeguard gives her, perhaps even dozing off…
Yes, I know, Gmok the Wise by Herbalys is an old hunt gift and has nothing to do with all these hunts, but he was so perfect to play the lifeguard part! The fun lifeguard tower is by Molto Bene (SH), the bikini by Doppelganger Inc. (SH), hair by Raw House (SH) and the sunglasses by Pididdle (SH). Skin is by The Plastik and it’s one of the many shades available in today’s 50L Fridays.
The next morning wasn’t so good, no. Even the bunny in the bed by Art Dummy! (PH) was listless and despairing and the nommy breakfast by Cluttered Flowey (SH) failed to cheer her up. The sunburn skin by My UglyDorothy (PH) was pretty much perfect for this, especially with the addition of extra sunburn and sun screen by Tres Blah.
The top is a part of Tres Blah’s prize and the shorts are by The Secret Store (SH). Hair is by Plume (SH) and I used Exile’s hairbase with it. The bangles are by LaGyo (SH) and the house is by Doremi (PH).
Having learned her lesson our heroine is recovered and remembers to have a parasol of some sort no matter where she goes. The adorable Totoro’s summer umbrellas are by duboo. (SH) and she shares one with a mini-Gmok who is obviously coming with her for a ride on her scooter by (pda) (SH).
Skin is by Belle Morte (WFH), top by Ingenue (SH), scarf skirt by graph* (PH) and the background is a part of the tropico skybox by Umwelt (SH). Hair with roses is a freebie by Plume and the hair decoration is by Clawtooth (SH), bangles still by LaGyo and same as earlier. Eyes in all the pictures have been by Insufferable Dastard (SH) in various tones.
What have we learned from this? Use sun screen if you’re lacking in magical parasols, sip your fruity drinks in the shade and always, always listen to strange magical creatures.
