And Now Halloween Is Gone…

2 Nov

The mini hunt has ended & I cleaned up everything including the Halloween decorations.  I won’t mention how many hundreds of prims I freed up doing that…  With that also went the fishing pumpkin at the taco stand, but the 7Seas is still up at Perfect Taco Lake on Taco Hill.  I’ve also retired the Hella Skela-fish custom.  Till next year I suppose:~)

Now that it’s all gone the taco stand looks so lonely:~(

A Few Of The Hunt Items

26 Oct

Thought I’d share a few of the items from the hunt.

 

TPT Halloween hunt t-shirt

Tacomodius modeling the new TPT t-shirt design for the trick or treat hunt. He is also wearing the hillbilly fangs I made for the hunt.

The Instant Mullet

The Instant Mullet! Made for the trick or treat hunt in several colors with catchy names like "stepchild red" & "roots black". Modeled here in "geezer white" with my own wig & a little raccoon buddy.

Mushroom Seating

Sculpted mushrooms with a menu of sits in it made for the hunt. I couldn't decide which I liked best, so I included both the patchwork texture & the blown glass. They are both super colorful & the blown glass has a little glow to it. They each have a touch toggled poofer at the base. The patchwork has a little butterfly sitting on the bottom that releases a gentle flurry of matching friends. Blown glass has a tiny matching mushroom at the base which emits delicate twinkles. They are both set to light poofing, but they are modifiable so you can adjust the setting to your tastes.

Cushion Chest

Cushion Chest. Another gift made especially for the hunt. An exotic wooden chest topped off by a couple of cushions & an afghan. This was inspired by these fabulous textures I picked up myself during another hunt. Clicking the chest will give one of the cushions which have four menu controlled sits in them. *It was brought to my attention three of the four sits are not cooperating. I am working on this. It's the same script used by the mushrooms & another chair I made for the hunt (a lovely Elvis inspired retro chair with a few fun surprises) & they share some of the animations, & they work just fine. Of course, these cushions worked just fine when I packed them for the hunt. ~heavy sigh~ There is no telling.*

A Lovely Visitor’s Blog Post

24 Oct

Upon waking this morning (okay, afternoon – so I’m a night owl?  What’s it to you?), I checked my dashboard & saw a linkback that looked like it might not be one of the latest spam links, so I steeled myself for the possibility of playing right into their greasy little hands & clicked…

Lo & behold it was an SL blog whose author had happened upon The Perfect Taco while out adventuring & wrote a wonderful piece on our place.  Many thanks to Ceejay Writer for visiting & for her gracious post.

Ch-ch-ch-changes!

6 Oct

So, I’ve been mixing it up around the trailer park.  Some are changes I’ve made & just not gotten around to officially documenting, & some are more recent changes.  Some of them don’t reflect so much changes in the trailer park, as they do changes in my knowledge of graphics settings & SL photography:~)  But I have begun the process of officially updating my pics & info for the trailer park.

Here are a few of the first photos I’ve taken:

Our Events Board

Our new events board:~) From the top: The 7Seas message board, our photo board showing some of our friends & fun, our events group inviter, & the events board. Clicking the middle of the events sign, where the days are listed, gives you a copy of that week's events schedule. Clicking below, where the site addie is, will let you open your browser to our website. The dvds added beside movie/video events take you to either a website or trailer. Beside here you'll notice a web survey for a health research project. It is available in English & Dutch, & pays you $L20 for about 5mins of answering simple questions.

The Perfect Taco Taco Stand & Rental Office

The current set up of the taco stand & rental office. Not a lot different than the other pics I've taken since reshaping the land, but better quality. The laptop on the picnic table will take you to our website & if you look at the screen it is actually on the site:~) Oh, you can't see it in this pic, but inside the taco stand, to the left of the door, is my new Master's in Trailer Park Management & Taco Artistry! (thanks to Djeaux for that) Also, the taco stand now has a dumpster diving trash can out back.

Yard Sale & Lot 1

The yard sale! Not much different here, just a better pic & a view of the new Lot 1.

Laundromat & Playground

A new view of our laundromat. Here you can see the clothes line, teeter totter, & hopscotch I've added.

Teeter Totter & Lots 1 & 2

I’m going to work on pics of the actual homes tonight, including the new mini!, if I can get through the new 21pg TOS I have to agree to before I can log in again>_<

Events Oct 4-10 (& A Few Changes Around The Taco)

4 Oct

Lots of changes happening in the trailer park:~)  The theater has been moved, not too far though.  It’s still over the trailer park.  It has also been given a new fall makeover.  Looks good if I do say so myself.  I’ve switched some of the trailers up, added a mini trailer, & I’ll be parceling the lots so they have their own media control.  One of the reasons for moving the theater.  Over the hill, I’m moving Heart Beet further up & into a mega prim with access only by teleporting into it.

& now for the events…
