Winter's Hollow: Let it Snow

Winter's Hollow is in full swing with amazing goods to purchase, gachas, a L$5 hunt and 25% discounts on all sorts of things designed to add magick to your holiday season.

I'm wearing an EXCLUSIVE outfit called Morgan from The Little Bat. The textures are extremely well done and the hud has 10 colors with black trim for the skirt and top, which can be worn separately. It's simple, yet elegant, and I love the lacing on the sleeves!


I'm wearing an EXCLUSIVE necklace and earrings called Let it Snow from Indulge Temptation!. These are available separately with huds for 10 metals + 8 -11 bead colors and at ridiculously low prices. I'm also wearing the My Precious hunt gift ring from !IT! I won't tell you where the Hunt snowflake is, but I will give you a hint: it's visible in one of the pictures I'm posting today and another Hunt snowflake is just outside the frame of another picture. ( I cropped it out...I didn't want to make it too easy for you!)


The icing on the outfit is provided by EXCLUSIVE DP Koffin Nails called Winter Webs. Mostly black with a touch of color at the tip and glittering snowflake/webs, these nails are available in gold or silver and will complete any dark outfit.

Nogitsune @ Kurenai December 1

Ever since +Aii released the bento fox tails, we've been looking forward to magical multi-tails. The Nogitsune set has 9 animated bento tails in regular and high poly, animated fox ears as well as tail fires and earrings. Available beginning December 1 @ Kurenai 
This bi-monthly shopping event celebrates everything Japanese and Asian. Discover clothes, accessories, furniture, buildings, toys and more.

I'm frolicking in the snow wearing the basic white with black tipped tails and ears, which gives me that snow fox look.

The hud allows you to color the individual tails as you wish... I did my tail in rainbow!
You can toggle tails on and off to have between 1-9 and even add your own textures. The ears have seven tattoo designs to further express your individuality.

Fumetsu No Gacha



Delightful items from Egosumaii at the Fantasy Gacha Carnival.  I'm wearing the RARE kimono and robe from the Fumetsu No Gacha and a variety of the COMMON items available from the gacha.

Now @
Fantasy Gacha Carnival 

Hair ~ Wasabi Pills Tsukiko Solar
Body ~ Maitreya Lara 4.1
Skin ~ 7 Deadly S[k]ins Calamity

Shoes ~ +Aii Shii Geta and Stockings
Accessories ~ Egosumaii Gacha COMMONS Fumetsu no Kiseru, Golden Lantern Sakkat, Crimson Lantern Sakkat, Lace Bow, Paper Birds

Aii and Ego have addressed the artist's dilemma in beautiful style with these items.
The kimono and robe are fairly traditional. The accessories are such things as the Painter's Tail which leaves a painted line in the air, the large bow, which has attached paintbrushes and the circling paper bird aura.

Thrifty Witch

If you're looking for seasonal items to decorate your Second Life without spending a lot of L$, try visiting events and doing hunts (See the destination guide for suggestions).

In some cases, you will have to hunt for something like a pumpkin or skull, and you may need to pay a few Lindens at others, but frequently the items are just sitting there with a sign that reads "FREE GIFT". Be aware that many activities end with the month, so don't delay!

I decorated my little pumpkin house (and myself! ) with freebees and hunt items available now.


If you like challenging hunts and wonderful prizes, I recommend doing the Fallen Gods Hunt. There are amazing gifts from many of your favorite fantasy creators for those who find all the hourglasses in this grid-wide hunt.
Fallen Gods is celebrating 10 years of amazing fantasy skins and other items from the skin carver, Alia Baroque.
Happy Anniversary, Alia!
The mask I'm wearing is a free gift from Fallen Gods @ Trick or Treat Lane.

A good group for thrifty purchases is 1L1H. Participating merchants make their regular items available for L$1. The challenging part is that you have only one hour after the notice goes out to get to the special vendor.
The family portraits in this picture are two of a set of six that I got @ Simply Shelby on 1L1H.

The Wash is also celebrating its10th anniversary.  Offering everything from clothing to makeup to decorations, most items are L$10 with a few L$50 items and some gachas. There are lots of free gifts as well.
