20L Tuesday Fall Fete: Hunts and Haunts and Harvest, oh my!

Book Sprite

The Fall Fete for the weekly 25L event is in full swing, with a few days left for exploring, buying and hunting. There is a hunt going on - a very civilized affair with an image of the hunt prize on each hidden box! The sim is designed like a haunted town, with an ancient old house on the top ripe for spooks. Like a lot of events now, it does have a script monitor that ejects you if your script usage is over 3.0. It also, sadly, yells for the entire sim to hear - which personally I think is really a shame. Expel people if you must, but the public shaming (and spam) is really offensive; an awful lot of people aren't aware of scripts and the effects they have on others, and ejecting someone 10+ times while yelling every time is just overkill. For people who want to keep track of their script weight, there is a free script scale on the marketplace that I personally use. I keep it by my height measure in my dressing room, and it works a treat. Often times, the culprit is resize scripts that have to be in every prim of an object, like jewelry or hair, which ends up amounting to two hundred or three hundred scripts. One thing you can do is make a low-script outfit for going to large events, one which has few to no scripts, if you have some favorite items which are very script heavy.

Did I Hear Something?

I'm decked out in a wide variety of items from a variety of events - this fall they seem to be springing up like mushrooms after a rain! The dress is from Gorean Rose and is available at the Fete itself; it's a charming puff dress with a wide belt and comes in the usual range of sizes for mesh. The texturing is subtle and sweet, and make sure to remember your lingerie because bits will be hanging out if you don't! I paired it with a new hair release from Wasabi Pills for the Costume Ball event in a soft brown to match the leather-like texturing of my dress. It comes in long and short, and is a single mesh object instead of several pieces combined. It's a puff of an updo with a cute ribbon on top; the ribbon is color changing via a HUD, which also makes it low script. The necklace is a new release from Apple May Design, and is only 10$L through the weekend. It's worth every penny (and many pennies more!), being a gorgeous combination of pearls and metalically style flowers, and comes in white, black and white, and black and red. The crow on my head is from Silent Sparrow released on Fifty Linden Friday, and it caws! It even caws with my voice; I was one of many birdies who donated my caw for a good caw-se. Finally, my adorable shoes are a recent release from Dilly Dolls, and like all of her things come with a wonderful color changing HUD for the details. I really love the new tendency toward putting the heavy scripts on HUDs; it makes the avatar itself low scrip and means I don't get yelled at when I go to events!
