Plod and the Holiday Quest for a Silly but Utterly Cool Bag

I want you to now, I got distracted 73,110.5 times writing this post. I don’t know what to tell you about that, but I wouldn’t read anything into it, like maybe this post is, shall we say, not as interesting as it could be. Don’t think that. Not until after you read it anyway.

So, here is the BIG PRIZE I TOTALLY WON after spending the better part of very late last night poking around at Plod.

Plod Holidy Hunt Prize

It is an utterly silly shoulder bag, one of the truly most useless items one can own in SL. But the silliness and the detail and the style of it – I had to have.

Now I don’t normally do hunts. Why? They are a pain in the ass. They take effort that normally I’d put into, oh, I don’t know, changing socks or turning onto my other side while in lying in bed. In other words, I am lazy (and have a doctor’s note to justify it) and would usually rather plunk down $L for something I want and NOT have to spend a bunch precious time and patience looking around for it. Especially the patience, because I have very little of that to spare. Plus I can’t even find my damn car keys in my own purse. Finding stuff hidden around a sim? Not my idea of a good time.

So with that disclosure, you may be wondering how indeed I did get sucked into the holiday hunt at Plod. It started out innocently. I got a notice from the Boing Frommage group about Elka’s new location at the Plod sim. Now, I own pretty much everything that Boing Frommage has put out, but I was curious to see the new spot so I went for a visit.

I just loved the look of this place. As I get back into content creation, I am in the middle of pondering different design styles in SL, because I am drawn to many different types. But in the end I am the biggest sucker for a good imaginary/storybook or comic book feel. Such as the one captured here:
Kurotsu

This is the inside of a store called – uh oh – I hope I remembered it right – Kurotusubaki. Hoo. Those Japanese stores do NOT make things easy on us poor monolinguals. You can buy a few cute things here, like an animal hat with ears, a few poses, an animated rug. NONE of the cool stuff in this photo, mind you. But I’m blogging it for the build, not the merchandise. (Apologies Kurotsubaki, your merchandise is totally cute, but your build in Plod is what really got me.)

Plod has all the elements of an immersive storybook SL experience. And you know what? That stupid holiday hunt gave me the right “mission” to go exploring. Their products are really whimsical feeling, like the dirty bag I won with a lit miniature Xmas tree and a tiny animated squirrel hanging off of it. The builds are also well worth exploring, and some things you can buy and take with you like this treehouse:

Plod Tree house

So if you are into this kind of style, go take a look. And if you want the bag, be prepared to work for it. You will have to find yourself in some fairly weird places, such as the land of bigass squirrels:
Squirrel's nest

I will say one thing. The people behind Plod are waaaaay into squirrels. I don’t know what that says about them, but don’t be alarmed if you find yourself here staring at a hungry looking bushy-tailed rat that’s 12 times the size of your avatar.

As for hints? I won’t give away too much, but I will tell you that you can find two of the elusive snowmen that you must collect (ten in all) in the last two photos. They are small and only count once. You won’t find any in any stores that are not Plod (another hint!)

So while I normally hate holiday hunts (though I appreciate the creators who work so hard to put the stuff together and make the event happen – kudos to all of you, and it is great marketing, as I did manage to spend a decent amount of $L whilst hunting last night), I have to tell you I had fun. It got me talking to strangers again, something I haven’t done in SL in a long time and seriously one of the more entertaining things to do there.

And the bag! It’s like so cute!

Dead City Life

Here we are, me and Burgess, in our finest un-dead wear, hanging out in Dead City (SLURL).

Twee in Dead City

Dead City is an un-dead themed spot with shops, a club, some residential all situated rather serenely around a graveyard. (That’s me, escaping from Orchid’s coffin, below.)

escaped from the grave

The place was built by my friends Johnny Skosh and Orchid Zenovka. Back when it was Trenton, Alex and I bought an adjoining piece so we’d have a place to escape lag when Topgol was unbearable. Today that land has been transformed into some fine un-dead themed commercial real estate rentals, located on the corner of Envy and Gluttony streets.

Are ya interested? Grab a landmark to our little slice of hell: http://slurl.com/secondlife/Deadwood/237/220/666/

There’s plenty of great retail to be had in this location already. In fact, my entire wardrobe for this post has been furnished in Dead City. Details below!

Boots: Slum Stompers by Catnip http://slurl.com/secondlife/Deadwood/158/184/666

Dirty Girl T-shirt, Atari belt, Camo capris all by SNATCH http://slurl.com/secondlife/Deadwood/185/226/666 (cool spot with a decent selection of clothes and accessories and even a few shapes)

Mini-influence armband – Virus Co. http://slurl.com/secondlife/Deadwood/178/186/666 (also to be had was the mini-arsonist’s armband and belt, among other must-have accessories for the social deviant in you.)

Rusty Belt Necklace, Blood Orchid http://slurl.com/secondlife/Deadwood/182/218/666 (our very own Sable Slade – crafts wicked jewelery stuffs for yer neck now in two locations!)

Crate Myg’s sitting on is part of a set called Debris 1 – Cloud 9.1 http://slurl.com/secondlife/Deadwood/156/166/666 (I didn’t set out the whole set as it wasn’t exactly what I wanted for the shoot, but it came with an nasty stained hammock, some two by fours and other stuff. Great for an empty lot hang out. They also have bunkers, a scary looking bathroom and other sets.)

Black Army Brat Hat – Blood Lust http://slurl.com/secondlife/Deadwood/186/169/666 (I bought this hat last week and have hardly taken it off since I bought it. Drop by for a lot of other cool accessories as well.)

Ratty Couch, Skull Bracelet – The Works http://slurl.com/secondlife/Deadwood/193/206/666 (Benjamin Bigdipper is one of my oldest friends in SL. He’s always been a great builder and now he’s showcasing his work at his store The Works. These photos don’t do the skull cuffs justice, and you can also buy great nasty furniture, belts and other gross accessories at his place.)

Stitch, left leg – Bloody Hell http://slurl.com/secondlife/Deadwood/159/213/666 (you can’t see it, but there’s a yucky, bloody stitch on my leg and there were lots of other gruesome wounds to be had at this spot)

Eat the worm in the apple

It adds protein, that’s why.

Get some fun Halloween freebies from Schadenfreude, (SLURL Fixed!) including a pumpkin that gives out free treats (see wormy apple in picture below…).

And while you’re at it, pick up some finishing touches for that special All Hallowed Eve’s ball, like an arachnoid tiara (which is what I bought.)

What's up !

This Mode Premiere post is not thematic, but more a collection of interesting spots/ideas I have seen during the last weeks. Nevertheless, I will categorize them in some viagra professional comprehensive sections!

Furniture
Loft3 is open, and this is definitely one of the best shop for a good prim/quality compromise, with standard prices. They have some very nice sofas, with nice animations and even multiple, menu based, poses (chat, cuddles). One of the best I have seen around!

Scope Cleaver has opened a new, fantastic shop.

http://familycareintl.org/blog/2015/01/06/cialis-generic-price/

You can go there only to check the architecture of the shop, which is marvelous. Check their new desk: if you like futurist design, this is a must have !

Scope Cleaver Desk

Still a lot of empty space but the owner told me it will be filled in the following weeks: this is definitely a place to check from time to time to loose all your money on stylish, well designed, modern furniture!

And Maximum Minimum is just across, on the next zone (another top of the art shop for furniture), and now you know you will leave that area without a dime in your pocket !

Shoes and Boots

I have a crunch for the new C-Tech boots…. My girl even nearly went rebellious to get them and I had to roughly punish her and remember her to what place she belongs! Very well done, with a nice option to switch from heels to platform boots.

Lisa wearing her black C-Tech boots

About boots, check that small shop : This French designer is doing some very nice over-knee boots ! Well designed, great details, super look: you will rock everything !

Clothes

*whispers* Ok, don’t listen the following if you don’t want to spend all your Lindens in the next 2 hours…. If you look for what I will call “smart casual” look, this is the place to go ! If you check Night & Days often, the name should give you an hint: Luminosity

One of the very best, stylish, smart shop for that kind of clothes: everything is nice, everything is well designed, everything is so “chic” ! you cant make a mistake !

See by yourself !

Lisa, wearing Ravena

Hairs

Ha well, experienced shopping girls and guys knows this already but…. Check Deviant Kitties … If you wanna some original haircuts, something different from the classic & curls from GURL6 you see everywhere, DK is for you

Accessories

If you are a kitty, you know Temenos Island ! But what is not so well known is that this very large shop has some new sections, and one of them is about streetware. They have a great set of belt, armband, gauntlet and collar, and some nice shirt/pants.
What still here? Don’t wait! Go on out and shop!
