Cosmo 4th Anniversary – Home & Garden gifts

with 10 comments

It’s Cosmopolitan‘s 4th Anniversary edition – how times flies!   I remember when this Event was just starting up – Corina has done so well with it, hard work pays off 🙂

Along with all the exclusive goodies, lots of the designers are offering generous free gifts and these are very nice indeed. So here’s a selection of the Home & Garden gifts. If you experience difficulty getting onto the sim (it’s bound to be busy) try very early on in the SL morning. The early bird catches the worm!

Borrowed my pal’s house and did some photography on one of the Linden regions for Premium Members. If you’re just starting up in SL, these are a great choice as you can control the land permissions and make your new home entirely private. This sim had the Tahoe theme.

1. “Weathercock” by Backbone.  Designer Ruvio Cortes makes original Mesh decor, this weathercock is only 3 LI with Permissions of Copy/Modify. The cockerel rotates in a circular motion, stopping every so often, just like the real thing, as he point the arrow to the correct wind direction.

2. “Bird Bath with Robin” by TLC Home Collection. Such a gorgeous piece for only 5 LI. The bird bath and the robin are also included as separate pieces, 4 LI and 1 LI. Permissions are Copy/Modify. The robin sings and he’s animated, too. You can control the sound so that he’s not so piercing lol, although in real life robins sing extremely loudly, especially when defending territories. The water in the bird bath is also animated and any minute now you expect the robin to leap in!

3. “Table with Lanterns” from Bee Designs. This went very well with the house theme and I’d imagine would be great in any number of wooden porches to light things up in the evenings. Close up the detailing is fine, LI 4 and Permissions are Copy/Modify.

4. “Eugenia Chandelier” by Spargel & Shine. A beautiful antique style gold chandelier with a land impact of only 7. It casts a soft candle light for a romantic yet rustic feel. To light or extinguish the candles, click on the centrepiece of the chandelier. If you click and hold for 3 seconds a blue menu appears by which you can change various settings for the light perception, as the desired effects can vary from one environment to another. I’ve taken a couple of photos in different Windlights. Permissions are Copy/Modify.

5. “Decorative Cacti” by CCD Original Mesh. We get two of these beauties. The large pot contains a meaty looking cactus – love it – and the smaller pot has a cactus with pebbles. Both are 3 LI each. Permissions are Copy/Modify but the rezzed size was just perfect.

6. “Mosquito Coil” by Mesh India. Amazing detail in this piece, matches are included and you get a smoke particle effect if you click on/off the coil. Only 1 LI with Permissions of Copy/Modify, shadow included – you must pick up one of these useful items for all beach/camping scenes.

Designer Karthikeyan Engineer makes mesh decorations for the Indian culture and items that are related to India or the sub countries therein. Only started this year, they don’t yet have a mainstore but items can be bought on Marketplace and they are also attending various events. I think this will be an interesting designer to watch for future products!

7. “Four Seasons Road Sign” by Goose. This is another gorgeous piece by Goose. Well worth joining the Goose Inworld group as you get a similarly must have piece each month as group gifts. Plus designer Tyrek has a sale every now and then! The road sign is 6 LI with Permissions of Copy/Modify. It looks good in all lights with that row of bulbs sparkling away.

8. “Gift Cake” by Your Dreams. And who doesn’t like cake? This gorgeous little cake is decorated with a flower and looks good enough… to eat *laughs* Darn, now I’m hungry! Your Dreams specialises in decor for parties and special occasions. The gift cake is only 1 LI with Permissions of Copy/Modify.

Now I have put in the mainstores/Marketplace stores for these good folks BUT remember that you pick up the gifts at the Cosmopolitan Event which is on from today and runs for a fortnight.

Cheers, m’dears 🙂
