The fourth Zombie Popcorn Hunt has started! There’s 76 wonderful shops involved and if you join the group you can grab the list of landmarks and hints from the past notices. Begin here. My favorites are from the more strange, dark and quirky offerings of the hunt, but there was plenty of wonderful normal things for everyday use as well!

Obviously you have to have a zombie in a Zombie Popcorn Hunt. This one even -has- the said popcorn although I fear for her coordination. Might be tricksy to get the popcorn out from the small bag, especially with the ickle zombie already noming…

I found the Madworld Park during the hunt and immediately landmarked it to come back for pictures. The zombie girl is wearing an outfit by Severed Garden: armwarmers, armlets, bra, skirt, boots, mouthie and the body scar. I was extremely impressed by it, not only because of the quality but because the resizer script had also stretch options so you can resize it to certain directions only. ❤ It was also delightful to notice that they offered both alpha layer and invisiprims for shoes and the tattoo in underwear and tattoo layers. The skin is by Glam Affair, hair by MINA Hair, face blood by V.E.L Cosmetics, zombie stomach wound by Repulse (a part of the first prize of the hunt) and the pose is one of the zombie poses by Captivity Co.

Where you have zombies you also have zombie hunters, it’s the great circle of um… unlife. This particular zombie hunter got an accidental ganguro feel, but I kinda like it.

The hair is not a part of the ZP hunt, it’s by SyDS from the Oh My Stars – April Showers Hunt. The outfit is my second favorite from the hunt, it’s a bloody kimono by Sassy Kitty Designs. Not that you could possibly call that a kimono, except in a very particular anime perhaps. It doesn’t even pretend to have a skirt part by adding a tiny prim. I sort of approve, I hate the teeny tiny prims that will not look good no matter how you set them to fake skirtness. Might as well skip them completely! The outfit comes with a clean version as well and includes shoes, ripped leggings and the chopstick hair pins. The huge three-bladed scythe is by J.I.N.X. and it’s absolutely necessary for a good zombie hunt. The skin is by Filthy and the body tattoo by Arnadi. The spider & web mouthie (what little you can see of it) is by EY:NO and the pose is by Diesel Works.

There’s always some prizes that go into the crazy entertainment of popcorn, stripes and carnival. For this shot I left the park, set out an old hunt prize house by Zacca to work as the background and made a scene with some of the furniture gifts.

The beautiful posing chair is by Tableau Vivant, the black-and-white curtains are by MudHoney and the rest of the bloody couch set is by Noctis. The carnie doll herself has a skin by Nuuna’s Skins, tattoo by Para Designs, top by ANCAYI and socks, gloves and panties by MUKA. The sneakers are by BC322, voodoo doll backpack by Beauty Killer and the tiny tophat by LaGyo. She’s noming a brain munchie by Virtual Insanity and has dropped a movie freak doll by Pinkmare’s House on the floor, although I have a feeling that the doll might start shambling off on her own any moment now. The hair is an old group gift by Curious Kitties and not a part of the hunt. The eyes of all the three girls are by Repulse.

The last day of the hunt is June 15th so you have still a couple of weeks to hunt for popcorn. Get out there and have fun!

Brief Burlesque~

~Show a little more, show a little less, add a little smoke, welcome to Burlesque~

The movie came only recently to Finland so I know I’m late with flailing about it, but flail I shall! I love the whole fifties-pin-up, burlesque, cabaret vibe — feathers, pearls, diamonds, corsets, hats, striped socks, fishnets, garters, fans and a lot of attitude — very different from modern regrettably bimbo-vibe of sexy.

I got home, put this song on repeat and went dance shopping. Dances are my second big vice in SL, along with hairs. If I find something that’s awesome, it’s coming home with me immediately. Four dance purchases later I managed to escape before my linden wallet got me a restraining order. Then I whipped out this awesome sparkly dazzly skybox from A.D.D. Andel! — old hunt prize — dressed up and started taking pictures~

It was fun to dig into my cabaret/circus folder in the depths of my gigantic costumes folder, had forgotten all the nifty things I have! All the violet parts — skirt, hat and gloves — are from (*chanimations. They are specialized in cabaret and burlesque poses and props, awesome stuff! The feather fan and the -other- hat (yes, I’m wearing two) are from -mika- and their shop is full of feathers and burlesque clothes. The boa is from VLW (Vicarious Lee’s Wildthings) and the body suit is from L.Fauna. The stockings with the garters are from League, a recent purchase and I absolutely adore them and need more excuses to wear them. The colourful face tattoo is from Para Designs, hair from Waka & Yuki, skin from Djinn & Tonic and eyes from Poetic Colors. Oh, and the pose is actually a burlesque dance from Ministry of Motion, I took the picture in the middle of the dance.

~So get your ass up, show me how you burlesque~

Time for More Popcorn!

“Did you hear? The second Zombie Popcorn Hunt has started! Oh, I finished it already, it’s full of awesome stuff. 84 shops, hints provided on the website as well as more sneak peeks and there’s a helpful in-world group to guide your shuffling steps, too!”

The amusing brick cell phone that I’m calling from is from Soap. The couch is from Kosh and the fun photo box is from Slash Me Poses. I used it for all the pictures in this post. This particular gossiping zombie girl is made of skin by Garage, eyes by Glam Affair, hair by Exile and rings & nails combos by Virtual Insanity. She’s wearing a dress and gloves by Acid & Mala, leggings by Leaks and necklace by Loulou&Co.

“Hunting? But I barely just managed to find my heart! I’m not leaving this room until I get it stitched back! Every morning same damn thing and I’m not even dressed yet! …oh, and have you seen my eye anywhere? No? Dammit.”

This little zombie didn’t go to market, but she has an awesome heart and ripping wound on her chest by Olive Juice. The pose is a part of the photo box, though. She has skin by Djinn & Tonic, eyes by Repulse and super fun zombie hair by CriCri. It has bloody bandages! She’s wearing a classy lingerie set by Glam Affair — once you clean away the blood layer it’s practically pin-up! She also has a lip piercing by Plastic Flowers and a mouthie chain by Calypso Giano. It has a script to change the letter on it so you can make a mental note on who to nom next~

“I’d love to hunt, but I’m sort of pinned down right now… gimme a moment to wiggle through this voodoo pin and I’ll be right over!”

I know, I know, I have a strange liking to demented ballerina doll looks. This little golden zombie dolly is made of skin by !Imabee, eyes by MADesigns and hair by Zanda. I really like that hair, despite it leaving most of her skull bald — something that I usually run screaming away from. It has awesome vintage feather hairpiece and it’s just so quirky combination that it’s practically irresistible. She’s wearing a dress by Rotten Toe, jewelry set (earrings & necklace) by Caroline’s Jewelry and mouthie thingie by Acide. The y-stitch on her chest is by Love Zombie and the voodoo pin with the pose is a part of Del May’s voodoo pin collection.

“Bloody excuses! I’m getting us out of here and then you’re all coming with me. Then we hunt. …oh, and maybe pick up some of those prizes, too.”

No box can keep a determined zombie down! …I mean in. Anyways! The chair and the pose with it are also a part of the Slash Me Poses hunt prize. Oh, and see the crack in the glass? Also a part of it. You can choose between the broken glass and a screen. She’s made of skin by Djinn & Tonic, eyes by Repulse, tattoos by Para Designs and hair by MADesigns. She’s wearing a dress by Bubble, but the socks are by Rotten Toe and not a part of the hunt. I just had to add them since they matched so well. Her shoes are by hoorenbeek, bracelet by Blitzed, necklace by Loulou&Co and piercings by Acide (more or less all over the face). Oh, and she has a brain kabob by Concrete Flowers as a future snack with her, holding it in her mouth.

Zombies have escaped! Your turn to hunt them down now~

Must… have… popcorn…

Now, you all know that I love strange, quirky, eccentric things. Look at the blog — the only times I bother to post is when there’s something weird going on! The latest addition to this is the Zombie Popcorn Hunt. The participating shop list is ridiculously fantastic and high quality, and the prize items get an A for quality. However, I must wonder why not even half of the items had anything to do with zombies. O.o Much hat-tipping and kudos to those designers who went with the theme and had fun!

There was only one skybox in the hunt and although it was awesome, it was space themed. *blinks* So I rezed an old haunted house from Tuft to work as the background instead! The poses that have nothing to do with furniture are from Poses4Posers, who had created an absolutely delightful set of zombie poses for the hunt. My favorite item from the whole hunt is this skin by Plastik (a male version included as well), and I’ll show some of the other random nifty varied things and different zombie looks. Here we have a striped mini dress and matching socks and gloves from Acid & Mala. They included a clean version for non-zombie days as well. Shoes are from Ducknipple, belt from Loulou&Co, hair from Amacci, eyes from Plastik and the necklace from noir*lily.

Here we have an innocent little zombie girl, waiting for her dinner date, obviously feeling rather moping since he hasn’t showed up. The hilarious bed with two menus worth of poses (including jumping on the bed animation) is from Concrete Flowers. Skin is from Imabee, hair from IrEn, eyes from Kosh, bracelets from Loulou&Co and the dress from A-Bomb. So sweet, so adorable, so slightly demented circus-vibe. Perfect for cutesy zombie girls!

And here we have the reason why the dinner date never showed up. Didn’t get past the movie invitation downstairs. Seems he was delicious~ This zombie girl is obviously more of a tomboy and is dressed in male gifts from the hunt. Shoes from A-Bomb, outfit from DeeTaleZ and hair from Exile. I added the necklace from Gems & Kisses and the belt from Loulou&Co for some feminine touch, and the Plastik skin is of course the female version. The blood on the hands is from the earlier posted Acid & Mala outfit. Chaise is from Blue MoonPie, brains lunchbag from Intrigue Co and the zombie popcorn bag is what you get when you hit the hunt subscribo.

I have a feeling that when this particular zombie girl hears that someone hogged all the noms, there’s gonna be trouble. Plastik skin, Kosh eyes, MADesigns hair, Para Designs tattoo, iPoke piercing and Loulou&Co bracelet. The mini dress with the skull corsage is from III and the blood and scar layers are from dEVOL. The strangely disco armchair is from SHAG and the paper lanterns from Turnip’s Homes and Stuff.

Here’s something you don’t get to see often in this blog: blonde hair! I wasn’t going to, but then I ran into the skin from Glam Affair and had a vision of a Marilyn zombie. I wish I had had a blood-spattered torn classic white Marilyn dress to go with it, but… this’ll do. ^_^ Hair is from Exile, eyes from Plastik, all the blood and scars from dEVOL, necklace from Gems & Kisses, belt and bracelets from Loulou&Co, pose from Poses4Posers and the camo dress from Pesto.

Something about zombies and circus just works so well together. Here we have another mix of demented circus looks! Dress from Miamai, shoes from A-Bomb, gloves and stockings from Acid & Mala, skin from Imabee, eyes from Kosh and the funny hat hair from Posh. Pose one of those Poses4Posers zombie ones~

And then it’s time to box the zombies again, until next time! I love this random stealth box from Cloud 9.1 — no one suspects a boxed zombie! The skin from Fallen Style has the mouth sewn shut and a little scar near one of the eyes, the rest of the scars and blood are the courtesy of dEVOL. The yellow reptilian eyes are from Nut’s gift. You can also catch a glimpse of the spiked bracelet from Blitzed.

So there. Go out there, hunt for zombies, take their popcorn and run!
