meadowWorks brings both light and hope to the Home & Garden Expo with intricate floating wish lanterns and a fittingly named sculpture: Hope.
Lanterns are a symbol of hope, and wish lanterns in particular are a sort of material representation of a kind of prayer… (or wish). So since the HGE sims are all named Hope this year, I decided I should make lots and lots of lanterns.
There are 5 colors: pink, purple, blue, peach, and yellow
3 sizes S,M,L
and 2 versions rotating (R) and not,
so that’s 30 lanterns to sprinkle around.
Why so many in the box… well, depending on how good your build/modify skills are, you might appreciated the different sizes and rotation scripts, but if you are skilled you can ditch the extras.
No rule says they have to be used as floating lanterns on water. you could toss them across your lawn or pretend they are magnolias and stick them in a tree or whatever.
The idea for the Rice Paper Lanterns shaped like swans hails back to the earlier Random Acts of Swan-ness and they are now ready to float gracefully on your ponds and pools, illuminating the gardens.
There are 2 versions in the box. Two swans linked to a prim with a rotation script in it and just a single swan. They are copy/mod so you can drag out dozens and dozens and dozens to light up your life on water or land.
In addition to the lanterns there’s also Hope, the sculpture that simply had to be brought to its sim namesake. Hope was originally released at The Chapter Four, but it is now available only in Home & Garden Expo where it embodies its title beautifully. Read more about Hope and its inspiration here.
The lanterns are 1 LI and modifiable, so you can resize them as you wish. Remember that when making mesh items larger their land impact rises as well. Hope is 9 LI lifesize.
The lanterns and sculpture are hand-painted, materials enabled, original mesh.
Permissions are copy/modify/no-transfer.
The swan lanterns are 100L, the lotus lanterns 150L,
The Hope sculpture 300L.
All of the proceeds go to Relay For Life of Second Life.
Home & Garden Expo opens officially 00:01 Sunday 14th February.
