Hibernation – don’t wake me up until Spring!

with 11 comments

 

For those of us that don’t really approve of Winter except for all the snuggling up to get nice and cosy 🙂

*~*~*

Some extra pictures of KITE’s Dorothy’s Cabin, an outstanding modern style cabin with four versions included. I really like the decking on the front of this building and the way it’s already covered with snow. Makes for easy decorating.

Wooden deck with steps to ground, door leads to a large inner room with picture windows at both ends for maximum views and light, and bleached wooden floorboards. Two inner sliding doors lead off to a couple of extra rooms, one more private than the other. Beautiful light wood texture.  Here’s the reverse view.

We’re all going on a Summer Holiday!

CHEZ MOI - Sanarae - caravan front elevation

 

“We’re all going on a summer holiday
no more working for a week or two.
We’re going where the sun shines brightly
we’re going where the sea is blue.
we’ve all seen it on the movies,
now let’s see if it’s true.”

Nearly everyone I know is off on holiday during August! If you like self catering and the chance to roam free, why not take a caravan?  CHEZ MOI has a beautiful interactive caravan as an exclusive release for the Sanarae Event which runs until August 18th.

 

CHEZ MOI - Sanarae - caravan side 2 trailer

 

Just loved this little hideaway, it’s small enough to slot into a corner of land and would make a great start for a beach scene. Land Impact is 35 with an optional 1 LI shadow. 100% original mesh and finely observed all round, I’m sure Nanda has one just like it in RL 🙂 Available in 5 colours – canary, waves, summer night, passion and Penelope with PG and Adult versions.

 

CHEZ MOI - Sanarae - caravan side 1

 

The door stays open upon clicking and shuts automatically after a while. Inside the windows are shaded and there’s a fair amount of interior light.

There are 22 poses for couples in love, many with wearable props such as tea, book and guitar. In the Adult version you get a further 32 intimate poses. The interior of the caravan is surprisingly spacious and I wasn’t using camera tricks to get this photo!  Arrchie ‘n me share a bunch of grapes – which is one of the wearable prop poses – nicely romantic 🙂

 

CHEZ MOI - Sanarae - The Great Indoors

 

CHEZ MOI - Sanarae - chill out

 

Summer is for lazing about – at least some of the time!  This scene is made from the CHEZ MOI Float Ski Gacha, currently on at the Gacha Garden Event which runs until August 30th. The float skis are such fun, you can run them on any SL river or sea and they have controllable speeds when you click on them or just use the page up/page down keys.  In motion you get noise and puffs of smoke from the exhaust and then you can hang on for dear life and take care you don’t crash into other folks!

 

CHEZ MOI - Float gacha garden - under the dock

 

The “seed of inspiration” prize is a handy dock to park all your gacha goodies under. The dock itself has animations for male and female lazing around (perfect), ten each of those plus a further 10 poses  for couples. It’s 15 Land Impact which is good for the fine detail. Even the shib got a sun tan, actually it was so hot, she got bleached 🙂 The pelican is only interested in the food, naturally, and he learned to rez a plate of prawns.

 

CHEZ MOI - Float gacha garden - the whole set

 

Now with the float skis, you have a chance of 7 Commons and 2 Rares. The Rares – ice cream and watermelon – can take 1 – 2 passengers. Otherwise, the Commons will take either male or female passengers and come in those 2 versions so you don’t get inelegant poses when attempting to control the darn machines on the river.

(Other furnishing/decor items are from CHEZ MOI’s Navy Dock Set, books by Apple Fall, apricot swimming trunks on Moz by [Vero Modero] Allen Trunks colour change HUD)
