Kudos Spotlight: Solstice box - Air Tiki Temple

0 comments
Well Shep released the last one today. This one is at the Temple of Air. Again like the others it's worth 25 Kudos. This is a limited time opportunity and will go away as soon as a box is neglected for 13 minutes. Go get it!

Good Luck! Miranda Foehammer

Kudos Spotlight: Solstice Boxes

0 comments
Solstice Cubes are a limited time opportunity Kudos opportunity. Apparently the Elemental Tikis have set up Kudos presents at the elemental temples. So here is roughly how it works. Go to the various temples and touch the solstice cube when it's not spinning the seventh person who clicks gets 25 Kudos. So far we have the following cubes activated:
These are very limited. Once they stop spinning due to nobody spinning one for 13 minutes they are gone. So go... now! What are you waiting for, don't read the rest of this post.

Kudos Spotlight: Lucky Tribe HQ - Advent Calendar

0 comments
Hi all, Miranda Foehammer here. I have been running the Facebook Lucky Tribe page for a little while now and I've been given the opportunity to keep you appraised of new Kudos opportunities as I find out about them. Yes Virginia, there is a Santa Tiki! Some might say they are too old to believe in him, but I do. He must have been by HQ because he dropped off Lucky Tribes very own advent calendar at HQ http://slurl.com/secondlife/Samoa/107/183/1004. It has one letter per day, so make sure you visit daily. The kudos laden prize will really put you in the holiday spirit. I also wanted to let you know that I have moved the Tiki Water Temple, apparently Water Tiki was tired of facing west and wanted to look east. Apparently there was better fishing there. Here is the new SLurl: http://slurl.com/secondlife/Shiradin/208/48.

Prize Spotlight: Sanura Snowpaw's Dreams

0 comments
Something different here. Rather than promote a Prize Ticket item, I'm gonna feature many prizes in a Lucky Chair! Sanura Snowpaw's chair at Dreams (SLurl) is filled with lucky goodness: a complete set of eight chair-exclusive "Lucky Tees" chosen randomly every 10 minutes or when someone claims a shirt. Nicely textured and fast-rezzing, each color comes on all three top layers for flexible use with other clothes. Not feeling lucky? You can buy the complete set for just L$400 from a sign near the chair.
If you do have a Prize Ticket to use, right below that sign is one with a decorative kitty collar featuring a 4-leaf clover.
While in the shop, grab the FREE Wear Gray for a Day tee in the box near the chair and some free tees from a Lucky Kitty on the near by table.
Now get ready ... the first seven to feel lucky can contact me in-world and I'll send along a prim you can rez or wear for 15 Kudos! If you've gotten the Blogaholic Kudos before, the points won't count but I'll still send to you a tee that I made ("Save the Whales! Collect the Whole Set!") UPDATE: 12:50PM SLT 03 Dec 2009 Seven people have contacted me. If it wasn't you, sorry! Maybe next time. Keep reading!

Prize Spotlight: Digital Art by Miro Collas

2 comments
While the quality of Tribe Prize Ticket gifts are very good at all the Tribe affiliates, I have confess to a bias: I don't often wear dresses or "girly" things. I'd love to review those items but as I have to earn my Kudos like you do I tend to trade the tickets in for things I really would use. These "paintings" from Digital Art by Miro Collas (SLurl) are a great example. They will look fabulous in my home (see above) after I put up a wall or two (maybe ... just hanging there is kinda cool). Each is an image taken in SL then beautifully enhanced. I'm reminded of the time I spent at an old farm, savoring the great sunrises I'd see on the way from milking the cows back to the house for breakfast (5am is an ungodly hour to smell a cow). The sculpted frames are well-chosen for the subjects. Each 2-prim object is Mod/Trans so you can resize or gift them, but I think you'll want to keep these. And you'll want to browse the shop for Milo's other works, all very reasonably priced for the amount of effort needed to create them. Of course, you can grab these for free above the Lucky Chair (and grab the near by freebies) with a ticket like I did. What? You don't have enough Kudos to trade for a ticket? Drop me a line in-world with the phrase "Art Evokes Memories" and I'll send to you a prim worth 15 Kudos. Just rez or wear it. This applies to the first 7 responders only, and just the ones that have not gotten the Blogaholic kudos before. I'll throw in a bonus prize, too, and anyone who responds can have that. Thanks for reading! [Update 24 Nov 2009 11:09am SLT - All 7 Kudos vouchers have been given out. Thanks for Reading!]

Prize Spotlight: Abundantia

1 comments
After looking at quite a few really great Lucky Tribe Redemption Prizes for this post, my inner-geek dragged me back to Abundantia at Uhre-DragonReach (SLurl) for YessikaCalydon Bardenboar's The astounding Ramla, a fortune teller much like you can still sometimes see in arcades or carnivals. As you'd expect, if you want your fortune you pay one of the two "coin slots" L$1 to learn the Ramla's words of wisdom. After that a blue dialog box appears in the upper-right corner of your screen with your fortune, one of 4o inside the machine (20 per "coin slot"). Here is what I got for my buck: "It is only those who have hit rock bottom that ever appreciate the sky."
Of course, I paid myself but I can see using this gadget in one of my shops where I have 40 spare prims to pick up some pocket change. I've used other vendor/toys like this, though not for the income. Rather something like this adds atmosphere and whimsy to a shop or other venue so customers spend more time and, hopefully, see more of your products to buy. The 40 prims is a bit heavy, but the unit is Copy/Mostly Mod so you could adapt it, like remove the feet or add a sign to explain how the device works. I like the cleverness of it I think I'll have some fun with it.
I know I'm gonna have at least as much fun as the Prize Ticket I used to get it is worth and I think you will, too. What? You don't have a Prize Ticket? You need more Kudos? Then contact me in-world with the phrase "I see a Lucky future" and I'll send a prim to you that adds 15 Kudos to your total when you wear it or rez it. I can take only the first seven people who haven't yet gotten the Blogaholic badge. And I'll mark this post as soon as I can when I hand out the last one. [19:36 SLT 23Oct2009] And I got the last one in before my messages capped. That was Lucky. Sorry if I didn't reply to some of you, but that's what capping means.
Are you a Lucky Tribe affiliate with a Redemption Prize that you want to have featured here? Contact me in-world via note card with your shop's LM and I'll drop by to check it out.

Prize Spotlight: Wine and Roses

0 comments
Second Life® residents love their skyboxes but I prefer to live on the ground. When I rented a large swath of land on a private region I kept my home on the ground and created some lovely landscaping. There were times I could do the same thing when I lived on mainland. But other times when the view was terrible or I needed a high-altitude skybox for privacy I seldom put in windows. After all, what is the point of staring out into an infinity of blueness?
I wish I had come up with Nika Dreamscape's idea of making beautiful faux windows, like this Lucky Tribe Ticket Redemption Prize from her store, Wine and Roses (SLurl). This three-prim, nicely textured piece has copy/mod permissions so you can liven up any wall with a great view through several windows without using a lot of prims. Her shop has several styles you can purchase even if you are on a budget. And be sure to look at the attractive stained glass lamps. While at her shop I won an adorable butterfly patterned lamp from her Lucky Chair.
Actually, it was that chair that got me the extra kudos I needed for the prize ticket. If you need more Kudos, too, contact me in-world with the phrase "I like a room with a view" and I'll send you a prim you can rez or wear for 15 Kudos! First seven people only, though, and if you won the Blogaholic points before this you can say Hi but the points don't accumulate.
6:01pm SLT WOOT! Just got #7 ... thanks for reading, yall. I'll post again soon.

Prize Spotlight: Pooka Creations

0 comments
Try to remember that lucky is at the heart of the Lucky Tribe. Sometimes you win a chair and sometimes you don't. Sometimes you get a 100% match at Lucky Fortunes and more often you don't. I was rather lucky when I found Pooka Creations (SLurl) because I got two wildcards in a row for great prizes (a carrot juice bottle and 3pak of funny avies). It must have been the presence of the Tiki Bunny, right next to the chair in the Prize Ticket Redemption Board. Here's what is in the box when you use a ticket to get yours:
- 1 Tiki Bunni that you can hug nice and close (mind the splinters)
- 1 Tiki Bunni that dangles from your right hand (it's also brought a carrot along for a snack)
- 1 decorative unscripted Tiki Bunni, 18 prims and 4 meters high (not very prim-conscious, but still fun)
The statue is huge! Maybe even bigger than Shep's (I've been told I must note that "size doesn't matter" regardless of my preferences) and possibly cuter (sorry again, Boss). And the plushies are adorable, too. I can guarantee* that you'll win every chair you see when wearing one of these cute cuddlers. Run right out and get this set now before you lose out on any more prizes! What? You don't have enough Kudos for a Prize Ticket? Contact me in-world with the phrase "But Shep's Tiki is Quality Wood" and I'll send a prim that you can wear or rez to add another 15 Kudos to your total. It's the new Blogaholic badge and everyone is eligible right now. I'll take only the first seven people, though, so hurry up! Oops.. that was fast! Got all seven. Keep reading!
*Guarantee not valid on any day ending in Y. Promise may be void if found to be a fib. Your rights may vary from state-to-state so be sure to visit each and every one before trying to make good on any damages. Keep in mind that is is more hyperbole than an actual guarantee so smile and take it for what it is worth.

Prize Spotlight: Flights of Fancy

0 comments
Okies, now look at the dragon. :::giggle::: It's a pretty fanciful one from Noramyr Gullwing, the dragon breeder and fun pet maker behind Fights of Fancy. This awesome shop is part of an attractive and creative shopping complex at Extrovirtual and has a generous number of Kudos-laden Lucky Chairs (SLurl). Right near the region's landing spot is the Tribe prize redemption vendor (SLurl) and if you have a spare Prize Ticket, you can grab an adorable dragon like mine. She breathes fire, can be renamed (displayed or not over her head with hover text). For some reason she (yes, all my dragons are girls) initially attaches to the ear but you can move her anywhere, of course. I like dragons on my head, though, so this works for me.
The first seven Tribe members that contact me in-world with the phrase "Dragons Work for Me" will win a prim that can be worn or rezzed to add 15 Kudos to their HUD. If you've won the Summer of Blog points before today these won't count so give someone else a chance, please.

Snap Happy...

0 comments

It's been quite some time since the last batch of Lucky Tribe photo award kudos was given out... but the Ancient Tiki Gods have decreed that TODAY IS THE DAY for further Snap-Happy Kudos to be issued! ...and nobody should argue with the will of the Ancient Tiki Gods!

First up:

Cherry Kirktown finally found a use for all those Lucky Fish that everybody has been accumulating over the past few months.

(click through for the finer details... it's worth it!)

Surf's Up at Lucky Fish & Chips

WAR!

(HUHHH!.. GOOD GOD Y'ALL) ...

WHAT IS IT GOOD FOR?

ABSOLUTELY NOTHI.... oh, wait, this particular sighting of W-A-R got Vixana Lupindo some Kudos..

The chairs of battle

(with apologies to poor, dead Edwin Starr)

And finally, Mana Honi submitted a whole bunch of pics of this little white kitty mushroom-hunting around the streets of Paris NY. Now.. seriously... I'm usually immune to the powers of "cute". But these made me smile. Nice pics!

mmmm yummy
Congratulations to all winners! Don't forget to keep posting pics to the Lucky Tribe flickr group... you never know when the Ancient Tiki Gods might bestow further snapshot prizes... ;)

Prize Spotlight: Gwendolyn Cassini Creations

1 comments
Check out this steal! Look above the Kudos-giving Lucky Chair at Gwendolyn Cassini Creations (SLurl), wear your prize ticket, and click the sign to get your own *Gwendolyn* Lucky Tribe Xaria giftpack ... 6 colors of yummy goodness with a difference for free! Not only is this hair attractive, but it is very easy to set the way you like it. Most hair with color-changing ties or such make you remember a chat code, open a note card, look at color charts, or all of these to change the colors. This set comes with a unique HUD that talks to the ties so you can easily and precisely set the color you want (in the picture here, shades of gray). Talk about simple! Plus, this hair should be very low lag with just 64 prims and alpha textures have been used only when really needed. The fit was perfect for me right out of the box, but helpful instructions are included as is a pose stand.
While I'm prancin' about wearing the Teal from this set, contact me in-world to tell me that you've read this post and I'll send you a prim to rez or wear that will add 15 Kudos to your total. This is limited to the first 7 people only and those who have not yet won the Summer of Blog points.

Prize Spotlight: Ari's Neko Retreat

0 comments
Lately, my wife has been enjoying a new-found nekoness, prancing about in all her bits and reminding me of when I was a full-time neko. So today I began to think about a return to my roots, as it were, and right away thought of Ari's Neko Retreat (SLurl), a haven of cattitude and then some. While there I whipped out a Lucky Tribe Prize Ticket and claimed the "Lucky Tribe Exclusive Tail N' Ear Set," an adorable and well-crafted fluffy tail and pair of ears (two pair, actually, one small set and one large). Using a HUD, the tail and ear positions can be moved about and Xcite settings (for letting your body parts talk) can be adjusted. I love the little luck trinkets though the rabbit's foot couldn't have been lucky for the bunny and the two chess pieces confuse me in the luck scheme, but all are fast rezzing and cute. The little hat on the ear makes me proud to be Irish-born. Sure, I have quite a few sets of ears and tails (I need more paws) but this set is a welcome addition to my inventory and should be in yours, too.
What? You don't have enough Kudos to get a ticket? Then contact me in-world with the phrase "Uccie is a nice Irish lass" and I'll send you a prim to rez or wear that will add 15 Kudos to your total. If you've gotten the Summer of Blog points prior to this then these won't count, but I'll send along some Irish goodies either way.

Prize Spotlight: D&V Creations

0 comments
That's me, smiling behind that desk, because I just got a new computer! It came with this generous "Branded Collection" office set from D&V Creations (SLurl) and can be yours, too, for one Lucky Tribe Prize Ticket. This set has some nice features in its 50 prims, including nicely textured glass doors that open/close on touch, a laptop that uses the PearSoft system (for things like a Calculator and e-mail), a sculpted desk chair with 5 poses, and all the other items you see here. If you have an office and need to fill it, this will do nicely and impress your visitors.
If you've read this far, impress other Lucky Tribe members with your new Kudos total after you get my Summer of Blog badge in your HUD. The first 7 people to contact me in-world with the phrase "I'm gonna tell Shep to let Uccie outta the office!" and haven't gotten a blog award from me before now, I'll send along a prim to wear or rez to worth 15 Kudos.

Prize Spotlight: Made in France

0 comments
Many things confuse me. Like why are there eight hot dogs in a pack but six buns in a bag? Or, if Barbie is so popular, why do we have to buy her friends? How about if the store is called Made in France, why are there so many nice Japanese things there? I have a lot to worry so minor things like this I let drift by, especially since I traded in a Prize Ticket in the shop for this beautiful, 28-prim dining set. It's elegant design, quality textures, and Copy perms make this more than a L$100 value, it's sale value if you wanted to buy it rather than use a ticket. I'm looking to replace a lesser quality set I have in my home and this is perfect. The set is on display in the store (SLurl) and while you are there, check out the Lucky Board and the Midnight Mania. The shop has some nice clothes, tattoos, and other nice items.
Don't let Kudos confuse you! If you haven't yet earned the Summer of Blog Kudos, contact me in-world with the phrase "Wasabi Makes me Hot" and I'll send a prim to you to wear or rez that will add 15 Kudos to your total. Do it quickly, though, as I have only seven of these babies to give away.

Prize Spotlight: Haven Designs

0 comments
If you look in my inventory you'll see that I have forty-one sets of silks from from nearly a dozen designers. That doesn't count the ones I have in storage or in my twin/alt's inventory. Over the last year I may have discarded that many silks. So why did I want the Haven Designs (SLurl) *HD* Dara Silks - Gold? Just look at the picture ... they are gorgeous! The detailed prim work on the arm band and skirt is about as perfect as can be. The bows are just the right size and beautifully accented by decorative rings. The textures are good quality and stand up to inspection with few flaws. What I really like is the shoulder cape. This bit is not typical to silks and adds an exciting flair to the overall design. My inventory has some room for genuinely nice sets like this one.
Maybe silks aren't for everyone, but Kudos certainly are. If you haven't gotten the "Summer of Blog" points yet, contact me in-world and I'll send to you a prim you can rez or wear that will add 15 points to your total. Limit of seven readers, please.

Flickr Picks, 24th July

The Ancient Tiki Gods have cast their (increasingly irregular) eyes over the Lucky Tribe Flickr Pool, and have deemed the following submissions worthy of a Kudos award...

Devil Chair @ D&V 2

RachelJane Swanson supplies new photographic evidence that the D&V chair is possessed by the devil! (And apparently the owners of D&V found her impromptu chair-mods so amusing that they're now a permanent fixture!)

Fnordian Link sings the

Fnordian Link celebrates a full collection of Lucky Fish (Perhaps prematurely ... Sorry Fnord'... we've just released a whole new set of fish into the wild!) - click through to see this masterpiece in detail!

Mushi-King Dance

...and Bird Susa has posted a whole bunch of captioned photos from the King Amanita event. Bird has already picked up the Flickr Kudos prize once, but we loved her pics so much that we thought these were worth another honourable mention :)

Congratulations to all our snapshot winners!

Prize Spotlight: Kero's Toy Box Store

2 comments
:::giggles insanely as she tags everything in sight::: I need to earn more Kudos as I just used my last Prize Ticket on this really fun gadget from Kero's Toy Box Store (SLurl), a "golden" spray paint can that writes any Graffiti you want in a variety of colors and your choice of three fonts. Each letter is a prim so you'll need build rights where you want to do your tagging. Since I see myself using this to make temporary signs for sales and events where I work this should not be a problem. Certainly any merchant or builder will love this, but even the imps among us will appreciate this prize. Especially when you consider similar products are in Kero's store for L$300 !! BTW . . . Do you need more Kudos, too? The first seven people to give me a holla in-world with the phrase "I be spittin' overkill tag wit fatcaps" will get a prim they can wear or rez for 15 Kudos. If you've nabbed the Summer of Blog Kudos from me before just hold tight and let someone else get them. Like any Kudos you can only get them once. Got our seven as of 10am SLT 23 July. Keep reading!

Prize Spotlight: Moonlight Obsession

1 comments
One of the first products I made (very long ago in SL time) for my shop was a set of avie antlers with a nice color change decoration on each horn. They seem to sell once in a while, mostly to Tinies, and after seeing the new ones from Moonlight Obsession (SLurl) it's pretty clear I need to update my work. The "MO-Horns-Moon's Mist-White" I got with a Kudos Prize Ticket are fabulous. To me, the delicate primwork is the highlight. Working with small prims is very hard but Lunaria Eclipse did very well. The dangling ribbons are an extra-nice touch. XCite scripts are built-in so your horns can emote like this [16:18] MO-Horn L1-Moon's Mist-White: Uccello Poultry gently slides her horns against you rubbing softly to feel tingles down her spine. Whether you regularly use a Fantasy avie or not, these horns are a good addition to anyone's Body Parts collection.
If you collect Kudos, contact me in-world mentioning this post and with the phrase "Honk My Horns" and I'll send you a prim that you can rez or wear to add some "Summer of Blog" Kudos to your total (of course, only 7 people and if you've gotten them before it won't count, but thanks for reading).
Update: 12:38pm SLT 18 July ... Just gave out the 7th one! Please keep reading! You never know when I'll post again!

Prize Spotlight: Over Cie's

0 comments
As a builder I'm always on the lookout for new textures to keep my work fresh and original so I'm very glad I found Over Cie's (SLurl). The set of eight textures pictured here should look great in a Retro 60's club I've got in mind for a client. All the textures I've seen at the shop, be they the Prize texture set , the reasonably priced regular stock, or the freebies, all seem crisp and fast-rezzing. Well worth a look for any builder from beginner to expert. Don't forget to tag the Midnight Mania while you are here and check the Kudos-giving Lucky Board.
If you've read my posts before, you know the drill ... the first 7 people to drop me a line in-world get a prim they can rez or wear to add 15 Kudos to their totals. I'll also send anyone two custom crafted Utamaro-style artwork I've created (until I post another Prize Spotlight). Either way, mention this post and the phrase "Art Brightens Life" to get the prize(s).

The Ritual of the Elements

0 comments

The Elemental Tikis

Introducing... the Four Elemental Tikis

The Elemental Tikis represent the "classical" elements of ancient philosophy and magick: Air, Water, Fire and Earth.

Every member of Lucky Tribe has a special affinity to one (and only one!) of the four Elemental Tikis. This affinity is permanent, and - once discovered - can never be changed.

A new Lucky Tribe ritual has been revealed, through which you can deduce your own elemental affinity. The ritual involves the use of a Scrying Pool, and a Hookah pipe. Knowledge of the precise ritual is a little fuzzy at present ... but a small number of Lucky Tribe Members have already deduced the basic techniques of hydromancy, and have been able to identify their own elemental affinity (earning a special 40 point Kudos award). As with all Lucky Tribe rituals, the process depends on co-operation, organization, and knowledge-sharing. The Lucky Tribe group chat is a good (?) place to begin your quest for knowledge :)

A few ritual items have been placed at Tribe HQ, for general use by the tribe. Alternatively, you can purchase your own hookah and scrying pool from HQ, and experiment with the ancient arts of hydromancy at the location of your choice (all sales contribute to the ongoing upkeep of Lucky Tribe!)

How will your elemental affinity affect your future adventures in Lucky Tribe? Only the ancient Tiki Gods know the answer....

Prize Spotlight: CC Decor

0 comments
When Shep announced there was a store called CC Decor (SLurl) I had to check it out as my brother is named CC. No relation to the shop, of course, but I did make a landmark for him because he'd love the furniture, like this "Natural Calm" bedroom set I got with my latest Tribe Prize Ticket.
The bed has 18 poses for intimacy and nine for cuddles. The lounger has poses, too, which was a surprise. I didn't expect more than just a simple sit, but it has five total. Very, very nice. Silly me, I should have had higher expectations considering how well the six-piece set is made and textured. Run out and get more Kudos! Maybe from one of the three three Lucky Chairs on site. Whatever you have to do, this bedroom set is something you should put on your Want List.
Speaking of wants ... do you want 15 Kudos? The first seven tribe members to contact me in-world mentioning this post and using the phrase I love to cuddle in bed will get a special prim they can rez or wear for the points. If you've gotten the special 15-pointer before please crawl back in bed for a snooze and give someone else a chance.

Friday Photos

0 comments

Things have been slowing down in the Lucky Tribe Flickr group of late (I guess many of the regular visitors have won the kudos badge now), so this might become a slightly less-regular feature in future weeks. However - before this particular award sinks into hiatus hell - there are a couple of new submissions that the Ancient Tiki Gods believe deserve full recognition...

Nya Raymaker added a whole series of snapshots chronicling her aventures in the Fnordian-Moon Labyrinth:

2 now that is definitely vegetarian

6 hah - I gotcha - dinner time

(see, I *told* you to take a salad fork!)

And finally - (I couldn't resist ending on this) - Airlia Illyar captures VictoriaRose in a compromising position...

You go BOOM!
BOOM! (Luckily, VR remembered to wear undies that day!)
Thanks to everybody who has submitted a picture to the Lucky Tribe group :)

Prize Spotlight: C&S Designs

0 comments
C&S Designs (SLurl) sells some very attractive furniture and has two Kudos-bestowing Lucky Chairs. I sat in one recently and noticed a very nice 10-prim tropical beach lounger set available for one Kudos Prize Ticket. I put it on my list of 'want' and came back today after collecting enough points. Is there a better way to celebrate Summer (at least in the Northern Hemisphere) than to kick back and relax on the beach? And this is a good set for that ... all pieces are linked for easy positioning, the sculpties are fast-loading, and the textures are very nice. Each chair has a comfy pose, too. Now look at that pic ... don't I look good on it?
Celebrate Summer with this set and some new Kudos! The first seven blog readers to contact me in-world mentioning this post and the phrase "No More Sand In My Butt Crack" will get a prim to rez or wear that gives them fifteen Kudos! That's right! More than my previous blog Kudos! If you won any of the 10-pointers you are eligible to win these!

Snapshot Contest

0 comments

Readers of a nervous disposition may wish to skip this post...

Like all the very best prehistoric deities, the Ancient Tiki Gods were never averse to a spot of good ol' fashioned ritual violence and human sacrifice. This week - in commemoration of the new "adult content" continent opening its doors - we've selected three pictures showing the darker side of Lucky Tribe. But don't worry; we'll be back to the usual mix of fluffy bunnies and hula skirts next time!

Sawed off head

Taonuviel Furuseth loses her head over a Kudos badge.

So Much Pain, So Little Kudos Gain

Tichelle Teebrook finds hidden kudos (sorry about the dress!)

Waiting for VR at Detonation

...and Matthew Masingh finds his "detonation" addiction so overpowering, that he's now moved on to getting his fix from higher-calibre explosives.

If your picture was featured above, be sure to check your inventory for a special Kudos gift from the Ancient Tiki Gods!

Prize Spotlight: The PoP Dept. Store

0 comments
It was inevitable, I suppose, that I'd use this blog for some shameless self-promotion, but I just updated the Lucky Tribe Prize Ticket reward at my shop, The PoP Dept. Store (SLurl) and it's my biggest one yet - four beach hammocks! I wanted to celebrate upgrading my Lucky Cupcake to a full Lucky Chair that gives 25 Kudos along with a custom-designed bamboo beach bar. And if you contact me in-world saying that you read this blog post and use the magic words Beach Bunnies I'll give you a prim you can rez or wear that adds 10 Kudos to your account plus a special fifth hammock in soft blue tones. Only the first 7 people to have not read the blog before get the Kudos but any Tribe member can have the hammock. Hurry!

Prize Spotlight: The Midnight Diamond

0 comments
Over time I've gotten pretty good at beating prims into submission so that I can make jewelry but when it comes to getting the textures right ... I still need to work at it. So when I saw these rings at The Midnight Diamond (SLurl) I couldn't help but be impressed. Click the pic for a good look and you'll see how well these are textured. They have a luster that is rare to find and a tastefully elegant design. This is well worth spending a Prize Ticket. If you don't have enough Kudos, sit in the chair at the same spot and earn some more.
Or contact me in-world for a ten Kudos prim (rez it or wear it) if you haven't previously received one of these. And since today is my birthday, I'll give the Kudos to the first fourteen people to wish me "Happy Birthday" and I'll give you a special bikini that I made.

Prize Spotlight: Miss Muffet

0 comments
Just now I picked up 25 Kudos and a nice green 'Summer Sorbet' dress from Miss Muffet (SLurl) and clicked the Midnight Mania for an attractive lavender dress and shoes set. But the big news is the 'Tudor Totty' Lucky Tribe Exclusive prize. This attractive outfit has a bit of a royal English flair to it in gold on rich red. I'm not a dress kinda girl but fun dress like this one would round out anyone's closet. You can almost see it in this picture so I encourage you to visit the store to see it up close. Check out the other fun dresses, too. I'm wistfully looking at another one on the back wall.
Which brings us to the Kudos! If you contact me in-world with the phrase Strawberries & Cream I'll send a prim to you worth 10 Kudos ... just rez it or wear it. If you've already won this one I'll say 'Thanks for reading' and ask you to kindly let someone else win as once you have the 1o Kudos you can't earn more (yet).

Friday Photos (12th June)

0 comments

The Ancient Tiki Gods shirked their photo-judging responsibilities last week (they were away at an Ancient Tiki God convention, or something like that), so these selections were plucked from a slightly bigger pool than usual...

First up: Atriel Starbrook leads the Tiny accessibility campaign at Tribe HQ....

Tribe HQ - Now Loco Poco Friendly!
(click through to see the bigger - more readable - version!)


Adeline Valeska tests the theory that Fish Tiki gives prizes to anybody wearing a grass skirt and coconut bikini top...

...while Anistacia Markova attempts to please Fish Tiki using entirely different tactics:

And finally, a 4th "bonus" place, since we had a skip week last friday....

Lillybabe Teardrop takes her revenge on a Lucky Fortunes machine...

(we also noticed Lillybabe wrecking revenge on a poor, defenceless Lucky Chair, elsewhere in the flickr pool. We figured we'd better give her a prize before she decided to turn the boxing gloves on US)

The senders of all these pics should be receiving a kudos award in-world very soon :) ...keep submitting your Lucky Tribe snapshots to the flickr group... we'll announce more winners next week!

Prize Spotlight: Jazmyn D: Skins, Shapes & More

0 comments
Name me one girl that can't use a pink camo outfit. Right, we all know at least one, but you should show them the from Jazmyn D: Skins, Shapes & More (SLurl). It comes complete with prim belt and hat, both using re-sizer scripts for quick and easy adjustments. The textures are crisp and the edges are sharp. This is a very nice outfit and I plan on wearing it at the next Camo Event I attend as it is sure to be a winner (ample cleavage helps).
While at the store be sure to click the Midnight Mania and stalk the Lucky Chair. I got a nice pair of ankle boots from the latter while writing this post.
If you are one of the first seven readers to contact me in-world and use the phrase everyone needs pink camo I'll send to you a prim you can rez or wear that will add ten kudos to your Tribe account. If you've gotten one of these before just keep chair hoppin' as getting another won't add points.

Prize Spotlight: Bittersweet

0 comments
The latest rage in Second Life is the Cupcake so it make sense that you'd want to shoot someone with these tasty treats. Thanks to Bittersweet (SLurl), you can indulge your whim with style and zero calories for just the cost of a Lucky Tribe Prize Ticket. While you are at the shop, take your chances with the Lucky Cupcake (how appropriate) outside. You might win a holdable basket that gives out the most elegant cupcakes I've ever seen.
Like my previous posts, the first seven Tribe members to contact me to say cupcakes are delicious will get a special prim to wear or rez that adds 10 Kudos to their totals. If you've already won this goodie, please sit on your hands for now as once you've got one a second (or third, or...) doesn't add more points. 17:44 SLT We've reached the 7 reader/responder limit. Thanks to all for checking out the blog. I'll do this again later in the week!

Prize Spotlight: GL Designs

0 comments
GL Designs offers a nice set of "Playboy" clothes for men and women in their main store (SLurl). As you can see from the pic, this is a huge pack with something for everyone. And I don't know about you, ladies, but I think I look pretty good in Men's board shorts. As soon as I can snatch up some more Kudos for a Prize Ticket, I'm heading here. One way you can get some Kudos is to contact me in-world and mention you read this blog post. I'll send 7 readers a prim you can rez or wear that will add 10 Kudos to your HUD. Like other wins, though, once you get the Kudos getting another of these prims won't add.
4:19pm SLT ... we've gotten our 7 readers. Thanks!

Prize Spotlight: Roawenwood

0 comments
Like many of you, I have more clothes than anyone has a right to own, but when I saw the RW - Gunnhild Kirtle/Camisk Set in Moss from Roawenwood (SLurl), I had to have it. So I cashed in my last Lucky Tribe Prize Ticket (gotta go get more Kudos) and ran home to try it on right away. There are several variations in the pack. Above is my favorite, the Peekaboo Skirt. A Tiered Skirt and (full) Skirt are in the box as is just a rope belt (very naughty with no pants or skirt. The wrist warmers you see are scripted to act as bondage cuffs and there is an unscripted set, too. What you can't see is the excellent prim work and the high quality of the textures. The collar and sandals are not included If you've read this far, contact me in-world mentioning this specific blog post and I'll send to you a prim you can rez or wear that will give you 10 Kudos. Aren't you glad you learned to read? As with previous blog Kudos, this is for the first seven people only. Lots of other nice stuff at Roawenwood and I could hardly turn around without seeing a Midnight Mania, a Lucky Chair, or something else really special. This store is really worth spending some time to explore.
