Pumpkin

Hello pretties! Gosh there is one thing I love about the weather and that is Autumn/Fall ♥ Cooler weather that allows for Sweaters and Jackets and that is what I am showing off today.  Blueberry has release a new outfit, this gorgeous color reminded me so much of Cranberry, which is the one thing I look forward to on Thanksgiving before the pumpkin pie!!  If you head over to the main store, you too can own this beautiful coat and shirt combo.  Also, you can test the demo before you buy, which is always amazing.  Purchase a fatpack and you get special patterns.  A must have for the inventory ♥

Next up I want to call attention to the amazing new eyes that LAQ has out right now! Finally you can get omega eyes for your LAQ heads! Right now they are at a discounted price until the scripts are done so we can add appliers to the eyes.  For now if you look at the bottom of my post you can see the colors that are available to use.  If you purchase now, you will get the update for free and you are paying a lower price!

Oh! I forgot, if you are in the group there are two new gifts out too.  One is a set of eyelashes for the gorgeous heads, and the other gift is eye reflections for the glaze on your eyes, this is a feature that is used with an on off switch within the HUD make sure you have it clicked on to see them when applied.  Again its all pictured below if you would like to check it out.  You can also see it in the main store of LAQ ♥

I am going to leave this post here.  Check out the rest under the picture and get your shopping on!!

LAQ Powder Pack

I am so very excited to talk about the LAQ Powder Pack!! Powder Pack is a monthly mystery pack consisting of 12 mesh head makeup appliers from different designers!!  It was released November 1st ♥ I couldn’t be more happy … the one thing I have been complaining about is the lack of knowing LAQ supported appliers. I know some of you would tell me to check out omega items, not all of them fit the LAQ heads that well.  It sucks really and makes items harder to find to accessorize.  This has been solved thanks to the Powder Pack and LAQ creators.  We can now purchase packs that are made specifically for the LAQ heads.  I did notice that many of my items were made using the Lulu head, but personally I am loving my Rebel head … so I wanted to see if mixing and matching would work.  To my delight just like all the LAQ heads, you can interchange the makeups and they would fit all heads just fine!  I even took the chance to wear a different skin that was not created by Mallory herself. I cannot wait to check out some of these stores and see if they make other items for LAQ heads! If you purchase these packs in the promo stage, you can pick yours up for 1500L, and believe me that is so worth the price! If you are late to the game, which is after the first, I believe the price is 3,500L, which still isn’t bad considering all the items you are getting.  I cannot wait until next round when we can purchase another pack.  I will assume for now these will be coming out on the first, and we can purchase a couple of weeks before that time ♥

MadPea Halloween Hunt 2018 Experience

The MadPea Halloween Monster Hunt has come to a close on November 4th, and wow – what a ride! I’ve got some awesome sims to share with you! I’m not the biggest fan of Halloween, but MadPea really stepped up this year with some new exciting features this time around. More on that below – but first, EXPLORATION!

I really love seeing the creativity of the community, especially during Halloween time – they go all out for the spooky holiday! There are lots of haunted sims this time around, and each one was so fun to explore.

My MadPea Halloween Monster Hunt Adventure

Day 1  – Aquila III Research Station

Aquila III Research Station | Mine & Yours

The Aquila III Research Station is always in the MadPea Hunt, and every time I go, I do enjoy hunting there. I featured this sim during the summer hunt, but this time, I wanted to showcase a creepier section of the sim that was decorated specifically for Halloween. I love the alien nature of this world. There’s something so intriguing about this extraterrestrial scene that I had to capture what I saw!

Day 2 – Ethereal Sanctuary

Ethereal Sanctuary | Mine & Yours

Next stop, Ethereal Sanctuary. Also another frequent of MadPea Hunts but always so beautiful each and every time I go. There seems to be something new I discover with each visit! I like this particular spot on the sim because it has a beautiful overlook of the ocean. Beautifully decorated for peaceful rest, I spent some time here just listening to the relaxing waves of the sea.

Day 3  – Hocus Pocus – Avada Kedavra

Hocus Pocus - Avada Kedavra | Mine & Yours

This haunting sim was a delight to explore. At first glance, this Hocus Pocus sim seemed quite barren, but after walking around, I found quite a few great photographic scenes. This sim is no longer decorated at the time of writing as it prepares for Christmas, but I had to share such a great capture of the location.

Day 4 – Montfort l’Amaury – La porte Bardoul

Montfort l'Amaury | Mine & Yours

Montfort l’Amaury is an 18th century roleplay sim, rich with history and story. A village high with manors and maisons des champs, Montfort L’Amaury is full of detail and an abundance of opportunity. This scene that I captured as soon as I enter town was too beautiful to pass up. I loved the look with its quaint charm yet holds so much more story the further the path continues.

Day 5 – Naruga City

Naruga City | Mine & Yours

I was delighted to come across Siya Ellsworth’s awesome contribution to the MadPea hunt in Naruga City. This sim features a thoroughly decorated haunted mansion in an amazing sim owned by Siya, featuring a creepy storyline for all to enjoy as hunters move through the mansion. Recorders are placed throughout the establishment, giving hunters a taste of the creepiness and chaotic events recorded of the spirits that haunt the area.

Day 6 – The Peak – Romance and Beyond

The Peak - Romance and Beyond | Mine & Yours

The Peak is a beautiful sim perfect for a romantic date for that special someone in your life. Open to the public (except for the rented areas), couples can explore the land or just enjoy romantic moments together. For more intimate and private spaces, couples may rent vacation rentals for a maximum of two weeks at various themed spots such as beach cabins, honeymoon vacation homes, private skyboxes or secluded farmhouse.

And that wraps up my MadPea Halloween Hunt 2018 traveling adventure! It was a lot of fun for me, and I absolutely loved taking these snapshots whenever I saw something I wanted to capture in the moment. I’d love to see or hear what your favorite sims were!

My Personal Feedback Regarding the Hunt:

1.  Awesome Sim Participation!

I’d have to say that the main motivator for me in doing these hunts is to explore the noncommercial part of SL more. This time’s hunt really did not disappoint because there was not once during my entire hunting period that I was rolling my eyes at another store to walk through. I felt like there was a great balance of commercial properties vs. noncommercial properties. Because of the great blend, it made this hunt an enjoyable breeze to run through.

2. New Huntables!

MadPea retired the ghosts (yay!) and have created these awesome, cute (and collectible) monsters to hunt for! There were so many different monster varieties in three different colors each. Hunting these cute creatures were a blast as each species have very distinct personalities and even different sounds they make when you creep closer to them.

3. Trick or Treat doors!

These Trick or Treat doors are amazing! Unfortunately I was not able to do these last Halloween, but these doors are the best! They give out a random amount of points, little fun Halloween treats, or play tricks on you by taking you to a mini escape room experience! I loved getting rained on by points from these doors but I also quite enjoyed solving these fun little escape room tricks!

4. LET THEM EAT … Points?

I think it is safe to say that competitive cash is a thing of the past, sadly. No more Top 5 overall hunter cash award and no more daily cash reward for the Top 3 hunters. Instead points for the daily top 5 hunters per team were given out.

1000 Points to 1st place
750 Points to 2nd place
500 Points to 3rd place
250 Points to 4th place
100 Points to 5th place

5. Radar \o/

This compact radar definitely made hunting so easy and seamless by allowing hunters to minimize/expand certain trays like the hunt counter and the prize carousel.

  • Favorite Button – This functions a voting button to vote for your favorite sims. The top 10 sims selected by all hunters so far are placed here on their website. Initially, I thought it would also store locations of your (personal) favorite sims, eliminating the need to create Landmarks. Unfortunately, that function does not exist (yet!).
  • Counter that tracks each type of hunt item collected – This is more to track and obtain achievements for the more hardcore MadPea players wanting to rank in the MadPea Player Portal. Check your standings here.
  • Prize Carousel – Shows all the unlocked prizes, allowing scrolling to see more of the unlocked prizes besides just the most recent one. Allows for remote prize redemption!

Possible Add-ons for Future Radars:

  • Favorite Button – Would love if the HUD could store a hunter’s personal favorite sims so they can come back to the sim at the click of a button.
  • Hunt HUD Radar size – Now that the radar is nicely compact, a scaleable option would be nice too. Maybe it is too small for some people now. Maybe it is too big for others on their screen.

6. Awesome Prizes!

There were so really cool prizes for this Halloween hunt though I do wish there were a few more wearables. The final prize is absolutely amazing! It is a mega prize consisting of a Monster Mystery Dollhouse Mansion with all the cute huntable monsters in miniature size! The Mansion includes working lights, music, clock, as well as an interactive mystery to solve with a bonus prize. You did not want to miss out on this prize!! If you haven’t already, check out my other posts here to see what some of the MadPea Halloween Monster Hunt prizes are. All prizes are also showcased on the MadPea Halloween Monster Hunt Website as well as their Facebook page.

Thank you to MadPea for putting on a wonderful hunt for us all to participate in, making this spooky season so much more enjoyable! Also, big thank you to all the sim location participants who placed out monsters for us all to gather. This Halloween Monster hunt would not have been successful without your generosity!
