I do plan to continue my posts about the Envious Halloween hunt, but I wanted to take a minute to talk about something I’m really excited about.

Gempandas are an upcoming breedable that have a lot of people very excited. I don’t know much about breedables myself, but a few of my friends are involved in the market, and have told me that Gempandas are quite innovative. These are more than just breedables: they are also a mini game.

In addition to being breedables, they also have a secondary function of hunting for treasure ingredients. You can use the ingredients to make magic potions, which you can then use in their spellcasting tournaments for prizes. You can also sell the ingredients and resulting potions if the tournaments aren’t your thing. Coupled with the idea that the pandas are low lag/prim and are inexpensive to keep, the Gempandas system is shaping up to be something both profitable and really fun!

They’re preparing for beta testing at the end of the month. To get involved, all you need to do is join the in world group, and you’ll be offered a panda when they’re released. Until then, they’ve been teasing us with cute things like screen pets and the most adorable shoulder pets you have ever seen.

I got the chance to own one of these shoulder pets, and they are completely wonderful. They have smooth animations, very lifelike, and don’t just stay put on your shoulder. They venture up on to the top of your head, and climb up your chest when they get a little restless. The shoulder pets are not breedables, so you can’t use them in the mini game, but then they also do not require food, run away, or die. (I’m hoping for the chance to own a little shoulder pet who looks like a real life red panda, so I’m keeping my fingers crossed!)

Currently, the amazing Gempanda team have a booth up at The Breedables Fright Night Expo. For as long as the expo lasts, there are fun events everyday, from the Gempanda team as well as the teams responsible for other types of breedables. (The sim is having some issues as of this post, but hopefully it will be sorted out soon!) You can buy a Halloween edition shoulder pet and a potion to make your real Gempanda into a Halloween panda after the launch, both available together for only L500 at the Gempanda booth.

So join the group, visit the website, and take in the information. Don’t miss the chance to become a beta tester for the cutest thing to happen to the grid!

spreading my wings

Welcome to my blog. This is my inaugural post! There isn’t a lot for me to say, as I’m still learning both my blog service and Second Life. If you’d like to know more about me, feel free to visit my “about” page, which will probably, at some point, contain some information. Now, on to my post.

My Second Life experience is made up almost entirely of freebies. I don’t have a lot of extra money to spend on the grid, so I snatch up a lot of those freebies and dollarbies that the kind creators provide for us. I make a point to go back and spend or donate into stores, but since I don’t always have the lindens on hand, it’s great to find freebies in the meantime. The moral of the story is, if you don’t have a fortune in lindens, don’t worry! You can look great without spending a lot of money.

I spend a great deal of time hunting. October seems to be a good month for hunts; with Halloween coming up, there are a ton of fun events centered around the holiday. One such is the sim-wide hunt at the Envious Mainstore. They’ve hidden 60 little ghosts with prizes in various places around the sim, which is beautifully decorated for Halloween. I have to say that finding all of these little guys was a chore, but it was definitely worth it! I intend to show off a few of the prizes, but for this post, I’ll start small and show off two of my favourites.


This outfit is held by the first little ghost of the bunch. It’s a complete outfit, from the hat to the shoes. I love everything about this cute little number. The hat, like all hats, is a bit tricky with hair, but that’s to be expected. The coat, corset, skirt, and leg warmers are great. The shoes are heels that come with a skin colour hud, to help you get a perfect match to your usual tone. Even the skirt prim, which I often have problems with given my shape, was no fuss at all. I edited it upwards and it disappeared right into my skirt.


My second item is actually my current skin. Ghost number 55 gave this one up, and I was quite pleased. It’s a fair skin tone with faded white streaks on the cheeks. The lips are a pale pink, but the star of this skin is definitely the eye makeup. Unfortunately, you can’t see it well in my example, oops! The eyes are dark lined and beautifully painted with purple and blue shadow, topped with purple brows, and lots of drama. I loved it with my mostly black outfit, however this could be used in a lot of fun pictures, and I look forward to putting it to good use soon!

With such a big hunt, the Envious Halloween hunt has a little something that’s sure to please everyone. It runs all month long, so be sure to get down there and get it done before then! There will be more posts about this hunt to come.
