Pumpkins, Anyone?

Pumpkins, Anyone?

They leave me in charge of getting a pumpkin, and I don’t even like Halloween! I thought someone would come with me to help, but, nooooo….they’re all too busy. I liked the little pumpkins, all round and cute and most importantly, not heavy. But, they wanted a big one…..I think the term was, ‘a behemoth of a pumpkin’! I guess they think I’m Superman or something, otherwise how is said ‘behemoth’ going to get loaded into the truck? It ain’t walking there itself! It’s not that this one is immensely heavy, heck I’ve grown pumpkins bigger than this one, but what makes carrying them hard is their lack of handles! Please…someone…anyone…..develop a pumpkin with a handle, I may not approve of GMO, but I’ll let that go, if only for a handle! 😀

There’s a couple things in that story that are completely factual. I don’t really like Halloween, I just don’t get it. I don’t approve of GMO, in any instance, and yes…I have grown a few jumbo pumpkins. They were big enough that I had to get a tarp under each one and have 3 people carry them one at a time. Nowhere near record breaking but I was happy with them. This one isn’t light, I know that for a fact, but I love this whole scene! Le Poppycock has made the incredible pose/prop set ‘Oh My Gourd’ exclusively for the Men Only Hunt 10, which runs until October 28. You’re looking for a moustache somewhere in the lobby area of the main store, and for no cost you will receive this gifty! The gift includes the pumpkin, of course, a pose, plus a nice cluster of pumpkins. The pumpkins are all wearable, so you don’t need to rezz anything to create the perfect pumpkin scene!

I’ve surrounded myself with lots of pumpkins here. The ones in the pile behind me are from the ‘Fall Punkin v2’ set from [QE] Designs and available at Mad Circus 3 and Trick or Treat Lane. They’re a new release and there’s four shapes in the set with each pumpkin having 8 colours to choose from via drop down menu, plus they’re scripted for easy resizing.

The ‘Scarecrow’ is a new VIP gift from {what next}. The VIP group has a one time 250L fee to join, but it’s well worth it with regular gifts, plus previous gifts out to grab, too.

The ‘hay bales’ and ‘hay bale w/blanket’ are both from hive. The ‘hay bales’ are decor only but the hay ‘bale w/blanket’ have four sitting animations. The ‘Outhouse’ is also from hive, it’s a one seater and comes in so handy when nature calls!

The ‘Jar of Fireflies’ and the ‘Grunge Barrel Seat’ are both from .::THOR::., and from separate gachas. I can never resist playing the gachas when at the .::THOR::. main store…..I always win, no matter what I get!

The grasses, power poles and windmill are all from [we’re CLOSED].

The ‘Fall Pumpkins & Flowers Toolbox’ and the Sunflower Garden Gacha Table’ are both from gachas from Bee Designs. There’s a great selection of fall and Halloween gachas upstairs, if you’re in need of great seasonal decor.

The ‘Shipping Container’ is from a previous round of Deco[c]rate from 7 Emporium.

The ‘Fresh Eggs’ sign is from floorplan.

And as for my outfit, you ask? Well, I started with the ‘Jessie’ hair and snapback from the ‘Snapback Gacha’ from BesomxFLite! I was so excited to see this gacha at the Besom main store. I’d given up on ever finding it, then a miracle happened! 🙂

The loose and comfortable ‘Boyfriend Jeans’ from !APHORISM! are perfect for a little bit of work.

The ‘Tech Sweater’ is a new release from [Vale Koer] and available at the October round of Kustom9.

I scored the RARE ‘Unisex Boots w/socks’ from NOeditioN. They’re HUD driven with lots of colour options including a socks on/off toggle button. They’re at the new round of The Epiphany.

And the whole look starts with the ‘Raine’ skin in ‘miel’ tone from Avada, which won’t be available til November…but I’m special and got a preview! Thanks, Stephanie. 🙂 It’s on the ‘Lilo’ bento mesh head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

You Just Never Know What You’ll See!

You Just Never Know What You'll See!

Have you ever wondered what goes on outside overnight? I don’t know about anyone else, but once it’s dark outside, there could be any number of things going on out there! Usually things that I’d rather not know about, like an ax murderer, aliens, or worst of all….ghosts! But, I had the bright idea a year or so ago to get a trail cam to set up in the yard to capture anything that might be wandering through. My one fear is that I’ll see something that I’d rather not know about, but so far…so good! There’s usually a deer or two, a skunk or three, or a coyote. Oh….and the odd stray cat, and sometimes a raccoon or a bunny. The coyotes are the ones I hate to see, they’ve become so brave in around the yard that it’s a little disconcerting to see them casually walk around. A couple evenings ago I stepped out onto my step and came face to face with one about 30 feet from me. He didn’t run or get scared, he just stood and stared at me. I have no doubt he was on his way to see if there was a chicken out to steal, so I tried to scare him into running away, but he just loped off a little bit and then stood looking at me again. There are guns on the premises, but I really hate guns, so needless to say the worst I could do was tell him to Eff off and try to look scary, which some people would say comes naturally to me! 😛 This morning it was a whole new ball game though……there on the camera, was a big old horse…just wandering around in the dark( I don’t have horses at the moment), and behind it….following along was a little horse! I knew whose they were once the little one showed itself, so it was just a matter of waiting for daylight and scouting around so I could tell the neighbour where he could find them. They had moved on up the field to the north and were heading east when I found them. So, if the scariest thing I capture on the camera is a little bit of wildlife or a farm animal or two…that’s fine…it’s those 2 legged monsters I really don’t want to see out there, skulking around in the dark!

There’s something in my front yard here that I’d be really shocked to see! The ‘Wicked Legs’ from {MYNX} are exclusive to the October round of The Chapter Four and add a really nice touch to your Halloween decorating! They’re 100% original mesh and they’re copy/modify so you can adjust the thigh shadows to where you need them. The Chapter Four runs until the end of the month!

October is full of Halloween events and goings on, and [QE] Designs is in a couple of them with some seasonal decor! I’m showing the ‘Wire Punkin Set’ here, which includes 4 styles of wire pumpkins and lots of options! They’re colour change via drop down menu with six colours for the pumpkin, 4 stem colours and 5 light colours. These are exclusive to the Mad Circus 3 Halloween & Gacha Fair, which runs until October 31. Also from [QE] Designs is the ‘Fall Punkin Set v2’, which includes 4 shapes with 8 colours each via drop down menu. They’re copy/mod so you can cover your whole yard in pumpkins if you want! These are available at Trick or Treat Lane, which opens today and runs until November 3, as well as Mad Circus 3.

Another event for October to be on the lookout for is Season of the Witch! It starts tomorrow(October 14) and runs until November 4, and Raindale has the ‘Charfell Cabin’ exclusive to the event. This cute cabin has a footprint of 10X15 and a land impact of 40, and it’s modifiable to be resized as needed. It comes on a platform(23X23 footprint and 8 land impact) which is HUD driven with 5 grass textures, and it can be removed if needed! I’m using it here! The cabin is scripted with the Kool Door system so you can limit access. This cabin has a really unique roof line and some great accents, so if you want to get a full view you can check out Keira’s flickr site!

I’ve used the chairs from ‘Kate’s Vintage Chairs’ from Nutmeg, which is a set of six chairs, all with really unique shapes and detailing.

The ‘Deathly Tree, orange lights’ is from Refuge and available now at Salem. It’s in a gothic style stone urn with two ravens standing at it’s base. The lights can be set to blink or to stay on.

You can’t see them well, but I’ve added the ‘Black Baby Birds’ from +Half-Deer+ on the step of the cabin. These are cute little black chicks that come with various groupings and also singles, plus some wearable ones too! These are also at Salem.

I’m using grasses from Raindale and Kidd Grass here.
