New Eggs, New Friends

“Have we opened them all?”

“You mean have we hidden them all?”

“Um. …yes. Hidden. That is absolutely what I meant.”

These fantastically festive Easter bunnies are hunt prizes in the Magic of Oz Easter hunt that ends this Sunday, so if you haven’t been to Oz yet, you better hurry! The egg with the small hedgie is also a hunt prize, the rest are gacha wins. Eggs and bunnies: perfect spring.

Spring Secrets

eastereggs3bs

“But how do the eggs get into the hooman world?” Cheepy the Third inquired. “We work hard all year with the eggs and flowers and butterflies and the exact right tone of yellow, and then one morning they’re just gone!”

“It’s the Guardians of Spring Secrets,” chirped Squee the Fifth. “Once we’re aaalmost ready, they send out someone to check our work and when they approve they’ll magic the eggs away, just like that! One wiggle of whiskers and swoosh!”

eastereggs2bs

“Not just a swoosh,” Goldiedots the Guardian spoke up, startling the chick workers. “It takes careful calibration of each bush and hiding spot and extremely patient channeling of spring energies. But that-” He paused for a moment, the official tone changing into an excited squee as he hopped next to the tiny bird and egg tree. “Whoooo did this one? This is brilliant!”

Cheepy the Third plopped down next to the Guardian, shamelessly proud. This year spring would be better than ever! The sun would be brighter, days warmer, birds more melodious and bunnies hoppier. It wasn’t easy to make the perfect spring, but by the Royal Tailfeathers of the Jazz Chicken, it was satisfying!

The spring in Second Life would not be a proper spring without the Easter Hunt in Magic of Oz. Go pick up your egg basket and collect your prizes in Magic of Oz! You can read about how the hunt works and preview the prizes here.

The Bunny Painter

“When will the Bunny Painter arrive, Uncle?”

“Nobunny knows, young Splatter. She comes on a whim and a wish, when the spring sounds grow to a melody, when the scents of newgrowth tickle your nose, when the sun warms your ears. You close your eyes for a moment and there she is!

bunnypainter1bs

“She paints everybunny colourful to celebrate the soon-summer, all the colours of the flowers and grass and sky and rainbows and birds and plants and stars and-“

“Stars aren’t colourful, Uncle. They’re just sparkly.”

bunnypainter2bs

“That’s only because you’re so young you haven’t been painted yet. Just you wait, young Splatter. Just you wait. When the Bunny Painter colours your life, even the stars will sparkle in brilliant glowing tones, alive and laughing!”

bunnypainter3bs

“I’ll stay up all night to see the colourful stars! All night! ‘n then I’ll wink at them and we’ll laugh together, the stars and I and the Bunny Painter.”

Magic of Oz Holi 2015 Hunt has started and lasts until April 16th. You can read about it in here or teleport to Magic of Oz, click the big poster to get the hunting platter and go figure it all out, it’s not difficult! The Holi Phalgun Purnima tattoo by Fallen Gods Inc. and the bunny masks by Ozimals are some of the prizes in the hunt. The elite Holi bunny is purchasable for as long as the hunt lasts. As always with the purchasable elites, the colouring is just a coat covering genetically a perfectly ordinary random bunny.

The Bunny Painter has horns and brushes by +Half-Deer+ and hair by .Olive., both available in the Xiasumi School Festival that last until April 21st. The bottle lamps by Happy Mood can be purchased in Creation.jp until April 18th.

The bunlings are enjoying their colourful life on the giant clovers by Cerridwen’s Cauldron, complete with the usual fantastic fantasy-colour options.

Bunlings Bewildered

“Agent Aww, what was so important that the bunny signal has been lit and the whole bunny mafia has emerged out of the secret burrows and pockets? You know you’re supposed to pad in shadows.”

bb1cs“I told them that, boss, but there was no helping it. They just keep arguing!”

“We want to know what our battle cry is!”

“Bunlings Be Brave!”

“No, Burrow! Bunlings Burrow! And then we hide, see.”

bb2cs“Ah… I see. A serious matter, then. And it has to start with B, of course?”

“Of course! You don’t see Avengers gathering, now do you? Bunlings… Balance? Blossom? Brandish?”

bb3cs“Babble, because that’s what you’re doing right now. You even dragged poor phasing Nessie out and into this.”

“Banquet! And then we assault carrot fields.”

bb4cs“Fine, fine… you can all come up with a phrase each and then vote on them: raised ear yes, lowered ears no. Captain Floppy, you get to organize the ballot. Yes, you may suggest Bunlings Ballot if you wish. But until the voting is done: bounce.”

Ozimals have absolutely hilarious Summer Blockbuster Bunny Gacha going on, a separate gacha for heroes and villains. The bunny signal and super sekret weapon are from it as well. You can read more about these special bunlings in the Ozimals blog here. The boss bun-lady has a hairdo by Alice Project, available currently in Hair Fair. The outfit by GALLACTIC, skin by Pink Fuel, makeup and eyes by Pin Me Down and headphones-ears by Remarkable Oblivion are available in their respective main stores.

Rabbit Day

It happens every spring: bunny girls appear out of nowhere, wandering around with mysterious baskets with eggs. Are they planting or are they harvesting, one might wonder. Which was first, the bun or the egg? Do they plant the eggs in spring to be harvested as baby bunlings later? Are they responsible for bun-population’s growth like the squirrels tend to trees: by forgetting where they hid their treasures?

rabbitday1bsPerhaps it’s for the best that we do not know, that we get to simply enjoy the sudden appearance of birdies and eggs, flowers and bunlings, signs of life returning.

rabbitday2bsAfter all, it’s better to be completely oblivious in case there’s cunning plots of bunnobility going on. What better time to be crowned as the Leader of All Bunkind than when the population is the largest?

rabbitday3bsThat said: do indulge your bunnies that like to hold odd things on their heads. You never know who you might be talking to!

Ozimals is hosting a wonderfully entertaining Easter-Egg Hunt in Magic of Oz. Port over here, click the poster to receive your egg basket and instructions and start hunting! You can read more about the hunt here. The dress by katat0nik, bangle by +Half-Deer+, sniffing nose by Fallen Gods Inc., burdies by Silent Sparrow and burd-fitting eggs by Schadenfreude are all hunt prizes. The bunnies in the pictures are also hunt prizes: special Easter Elites. As all Ozimals elites, the colouring is just a coat and not a gene: they won’t pass to the new bunlings and underneath the coat is a completely regular random bun.

The Power of Words

The temptation to bring forth creatures from other realms with the power of words, the call of unknown, the intoxicating surge of power, the feel of complete control in your hands…

summoning1bsOr perhaps it is not a summoning, but transformation. Four guests arrived for dinner, but no one saw them leave. The remarkably exotic and strange menagerie of the marquessa did grow overnight, though…

summoning2bsThe power of words can also be in the lack of them. The lack of accusations, judgment, proof. No words, no problems. If an extraordinarily large amount of locals have suffered tragic (interplanar) travel accidents or decided to settle down into a simpler existence (in kennels), surely no one can point a finger at the richest woman in the march.

summoning3bsBesides, a simple life consisting of carrots or chasing fireflies solved all those pesky little problems they were complaining about. They should be grateful, truly.

The magic circle with books, spells and poses by (*chanimations, the skin, makeup, the horns and their accessories by The Plastik, the dress by The Lounge and the shoes by Bliensen + MaiTai are all from the current round of We Love Role-play Event. The torque and accompanying bracelets by lassitude & ennui can be purchased in this very last round of Zodiac.

Disclaimer: The summoning and/or transformation might or might not result in meeroos, bunnies, otters, ancient gods or prim-cube-headed newbs. None of the credited creators nor the writer are responsible for the outcome or the lack of it.

Busy Mode

Sometimes life resembles juggling more than anything else. Keep everything in motion, one part at a time, one movement after another. Don’t think, don’t analyse  just keep going. Catch the umbrellas before the wind pulls them away. Or the privateering bunnies hijack them as an impromptu airship flotilla.

busy1bsThere’s a rhythm to juggling — or keeping all your thoughts balanced and somewhat grounded — if you let one escape you’ll be spending all your time chasing it and when you get back to the others, they’ve floated away as well. Don’t lose focus, stick to the rhythm, don’t let anything distract you.

busy3bsIf everything else fails: prioritize and have a cup of coffee, then start all over. The coffee will help.

The parasols by HANDverk and the poses by PictureThis! are available in Pose Fair until April 14th. You can find the umbrellas in Exposeur’s booth, since they were designed for those poses. I just had too much fun juggling air flotilla bunnies instead of using them as intended. The Bells II hairstyle by Alice Project is available in the current round of FaMESHed. The accessories on Kimallus — the black bad-ass bunny — and the earring on Latte as well as my dress are all new releases by Zibska. Same goes for the Thorny Eye makeup by Beautiful Freak and the bracelets by House of Rain.
