Boat & Bikini Expo Part 2: Chaos at the French Rivera!

Official Boats & Bikinis Expo Sign

DAY 2:  The French Riviera features huge water displays and 20+ of your favorite fashion and home furnishing stores at The Boats & Bikini Expo.  A cruise shipped docked in the French Riviera and a horrible mix up just happened! The passengers’ luggage was confused with deliveries to local stores, and now there are suitcases all over town! To participate in the “Boats & Bikini Suitcase Hunt,” collect missing luggage before the ship leaves port on July 31, 2013.  Get rewarded for your efforts!

Boats & Bikini Suitcase Hunt:

INSTRUCTIONS: Visit the Hanalei Tourism Office on the Expo sim to start the hunt! Follow the clues and search for suitcases inside each store! You MUST complete this hunt by following each clue in order–skipping ahead is not allowed! Use the teleport boards placed around the sim to easily find each location!

A few photo contests ended this evening, Thursday, February 28, 2013.  I wanted to share my entries with you for the Angel of Angel Dessous, coldLogic Anniversary Celebration Poster contest and I “Love New York City” hunt Sweepstakes.

The Angel of Angel Dessous monthly contest theme was Valentine.  Angel Dessous is searching for the next face of AD 2014 and is hosting a monthly contest that has different theme every month.  The top five monthly contestants will receive a 1000L GC and their photo displayed at the store as well as on the website.  There were a number of wonderful entries this month and I wanted to portray cupid magical powers.  I used a black box Wednesday special, Scarlet lingerie, and paired it with red wings and a cupid bow & arrow.  I also added a fabulous hat from Vita Boudoir and was covered in kisses tattoo. The photo was taken at a magical sim, the Beguiled Art Gallery, and my targeted couple for love was in plain sight….once hit with the bow they were Love Struck!

The coldLogic Anniversary Celebration Poster contest grand prize winner will receive all new releases until February 1, 2014.  For my entry, I paired the coldLogic anniversary mesh dress in black & white, and used a vintage rose sweater as a pull over (free item at the sample sale room @NYC).  To highlight spring, I wore suede boots and handbag in dusty pink, and a beaded floral fascinator.  I wanted to capture a college girl who planned a weekend trip to the big city for museum and shopping.

The I “Love New York” City hunt sweepstakes grand prize is a 2 week stay in a posh New York City Loft.  The object of the contest is to feature hunt items from the Golden Heart hunt.  The Golden Heart hunt had 14 hearts hidden around the sim (14L for 14 days between 2/15 – 2/28).  I was not able to find all the hunt items but I think the gifts will remain hidden because I was able to find someGolden Apples from the December hunt.  The New York City sim is very realistic with tons of areas to use for photo backdrops, new stores to explore, and a sample sale room with exclusive items.

Gloria wakes in her NYC loft and enjoys a cup of morning joe while wearing the red nightie and slippers from Apple May (hunt gifts).

Excited to explore the city, Gloria slips into the Beusy sweater dress (hunt gift) and pairs it with Chop Zuey Pretty Kitty jewelry set, Ploom dipped blond buns,B!asta lavender belt, and The Apple canvas bag (hunt gift). The wonder and joy of the city takes over and Gloria hops on the swings, slides down the slide and sight-sees by the pier.
