Lanterns and Hope at Home & Garden Expo

HGE2016 Lotus Lanterns meadowWorks

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.

HGE2016 Swan Lanterns meadowWorks

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.

Don’t forget to visit the gachas at Hope 5 where meadowWorks has brought a delightful Plague of Yoga Frogs upon you!

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.

Visit meadowWorks at Home & Garden Expo on Hope 4!

Home & Garden Expo opens officially 00:01 Sunday 14th February.

Random Acts of Swan-ness at Lost and Found

Random Acts of Swan-ness

Q. Why swans, why random?

A1. why not

A2. I dunno about you, but I tend to get possessed by certain shapes. It starts as a fascination with a form, then I start seeing it everywhere, start thinking of other things I could do with it, start studying other cultures’ use of the same form, start experimenting with textures and materials the shapes might be made from… and before I know it, I have a GACHA set just waiting to happen.

ergo Random Acts of SWAN-ness! and what better event for them, than Lost & Found?

Grace your Second Life with these swans, let them swim in your ponds (or bath tub!), decorate your house and garden, provide comfort as a bench, bring life and elegance to your surroundings. Whether you wish to make your home more lively with swans or perhaps add a fairy tale touch of a swan royalty turned to stone, this is the gacha for you!

All pieces are new and created exclusively for the December 2015 Lost & Found.

􀀅The benches have 30 animations total. 10 singles female more or less, 10 single male more or less, and 10 couples, all pg cuddles.

Floating Swan Candles are rotating, but if you want to stop the rotation, just unlink them from the root prim then delete it. It’s invisible, so have a look at where it’s located in edit mode before unlinking.

The Floating Swan Candles are bath tub size, but they size up really well, so they are fun for ponds and pools too.

The land impact of the swans varies by piece and ranges from one to five LI. Please note that resizing mesh objects usually changes the land impact.

All the items are hand-painted, materials enabled, original mesh.

Permissions are modify/transfer/no-copy. 1 ultra-rare, 1 rare, 9 commons.

L60 per play.
