Twisted Victorian Gothic

FT Twisted Fall hunt 2015_Victorian Gothic LRThe Twisted Hunt (9/19-10/19) is well under way and although dubbed the hardest hunt on Second Life, the prizes are worth the effort.  Today, I’m showcasing Finishing Touches main hunt gift the Qi Skybox, side hunt items and a corresponding gacha collection.  The skybox and all the furnishings have a modern Victorian Gothic influence in a black, white and grayscale palette….perfect for a sophisticated Halloween.  Victorian Gothic is an architectural style and movement during the mid-late 19th century, often seen as a sub-style of the broader Gothic Revival style.  It is characterized by gothic details, decorative patterns, scallopping, lancet windows and hood moulding.  Architectural elements such as pointed arches, steep-sloping roofs and fancy carvings like lace ant lattice-work were applied to a wide range of Gothic Revival objects.  The movement is all about drama and elegance with lavish interiors, curved ornate furniture and plenty of decorative details.

FT Twisted Fall hunt 2015_Victorian GothicFinishing Touches Qi skybox has a decorative pattern tiled ceiling, tall narrow pointed arched windows, oversized white candle fireplace and white/black wainscoting.  I styled the Victorian living space with the tufted curved black & white sofas, armchairs and stools enhancing the ornate detailed birdcage chandeliers and patterned tapestry wall hangings.  Pops of red, hanging boston ferns, potted palms and framed Victorian silhouette complete the space.

FT Twisted Fall hunt 2015_Gold SkeletonTo commemorate the 11th Twisted Hunt, Finishing Touches is offering a side hunt with eleven gifts that correspond to the gacha collection.  The hunt items include 3 versions of a skirted table, 3 versions of hanging tapestry, couple rugs with pillows, Persian Grey wrinkled rug, box of skulls, pumpkin trio and ceramic vase.  All side hunt gifts can be found in the Twisted Qi skybox (the main Twisted Hunt gift).  Do you love the Qi skybox?  Need to furnish it, then check out the gacha for beautifully twisted coordinating decor priced at $50 per play.  Try your luck at black or white caged chandeliers, shadow box frames, tulip lamps, coffee tables, and tufted stools (see key below).

Twisted Hunt Spring 2015

The Twisted Hunt: Spectres, known as the hardest hunt on the grid, is still going strong (March 5-April 5, 2015).  Today, I present Dreamscapes Art Gallery Ghost collection including the main gifts (bench & art work) and six mini hunt gifts (tailor, lantern, stool, candle plate, twig vase & rug).  The original art work by designer and owner of Dreamscapes, Carlotta Ceawlin, features a ghostly image of a women walking through the fog laden woods. All pieces in the ghost collection are charcoal blue and grey, a twist on the typical spring palette.  The mid-century modern Ghost Bench drawers open and close.  Surprises abound in this set with ghosts appearing in the mannequin, lantern, under rugs and on the painting.  I paired the hunt gifts with Dreamscapes’ Oliver Hutch and Serenity Chair White.  Good luck and happy hunting!

Fall’s Finishing Touches

On Sunday’s post, I gave you a sneak peek of Finishing Touches Killing Time Twisted Hunt: Time Warp gift.  The Killing Time collection is so wonderful that I wanted to showcase it and some coordinating sets from the original and creative 24Karat Roux of Finishing Touches.  The Twisted Hunt gift features a Salvador Dali inspired bloody melting clock with timepiece canvas display, clockwork inlay bench and table, stool {not shown}, and three hourglass side tables with dripping blood instead of sand.  The gift is sublime and will make a statement for this upcoming spooky season.  Ms. Roux also has a Twisted mini hunt and generously re-released the past 8 gifts from the Fall & Spring Twisted Hunt at her store.
