“Down the Chimney” Hunt

“Skipping Stones” continues “Down The Chimney”…

Special Creation for Down The Chimney Hunt 2009

The room was silent… aside of the soft cackeling from the fireplace, there was hardly any sound heard. All the usual busy noices of the summer swallowed by the cotton-like snow which was covering all the things outside like a blanket during their deep sleep.

Suddenly, a rumbling cuts through the silence, it nearly seems the flames danced a bit faster in their excitement. Then a last lound, hollow **CLONK** and with the huge cloud of soot spitting out the chimney into the room, a well wrapped little something rolls right out of the fireplace towards the tree. Black and dirty, but the sound woke everybody up and they hurried down in the livingroom. Looking at the mess, they looked at each other then back to the thing. It was heavy! And I mean: BY FAR too heavy. So we hurried to unwrap it, and to our displeasure, all that it had contained were a few huge stones. “Great.. let’s skip stones on the frozen lake…” a sarcastic voice could be heard in the room, coming from one of the girls in the back.

When the wrapping paper was tossed towards the trashcan in disappointment, a little note fell off one of the stones:

“Just so you know, I got the repair bill of your chimney from last year.
Get your stuff outside the door this time, and stop wanting so big things!

Regards, Santa and his elves.

PS: attached a copy of our bill for the extra service this year – I believe we are even now.”

We looked at one another, slightly puzzled, but nevertheless excited. And outside the door, we found quite a few other things – and we would have HATED to see those partially burned and soot covered coming out of the chimney:


4 (3) POSES (no mod/no transfer):

• (*cane2_stand
• (*cane2_stand (headTurned)
• (*cane2_stand (crossed)
• (*cane2_kneel

All POSES are static and come with ‘copy’ rights so you can put them into
your posestands or make own poseball arrangements. Some come with head turned
in different direction or free headmovement, to allow for more variety of your pictures.

PROPS (detailed info to each after listing):

Clothing layer (copy/no transfer/no modify):
•  (*MoulinRouge Gloves

Attachments (copy/no transfer/no mod – modify with resize script):
•  (*MoulinRouge GloveFeathers ** – right (w/resize)
•  (*MoulinRouge GloveFeathers ** – left (w/resize)
•  (*MoulinRouge SequinsSkirt ** (w/resize)
•  (*MoulinRouge -FetishCabaret- Cane ** (w/resize)
•  (*MoulinRouge -DownTheChimney- Cane ** (w/resize)
•  (*MoulinRouge TopHat ** (w/resize)

With the upcoming New Year’s Eve in mind, we have focused on something party-suitable that will make you the sparkeling center of New Year’s party, or any other party following after that :-) It’s a special color edition of our MoulinRouge couture line, paired with 4 new poses especially created for the cane in this set. These are different poses as those in our FetishCabaret MoulinRouge, but another perfect addition to them!


You’ll see some more pictures of the hunt-gift as preview on FabFree – Fabulously Free in SL blog.


The feathers are digitally illustrated – so no fuzzy halos or edges and only 100% feather goodness mixed with shiney sequins and stones, for a burlesque performance that will stay in mind! Size of all pieces can be adjusted by click through a simple resize script, and you are able to store the new size if you’d like – please read included notecard about the resize script functions for further details.

You will find two versions of the cane included, -DownTheChimney- Cane is matching up with the poses included in this Hunt Gift, the -FetishCabaret- Cane is aligned to match the poses that we have as (*FetishCabaret SET 20 “MoulinRouge” for purchase in our store. So the only difference is its positioning in your hand to save you some time with aligning in case you have the FetishCabaret poses already or plan to get them.


Burlesque is ment to be erotic fun, so no, there are no panties and bra included in this set. The lingerie worn by one of our models in the picture was created by Forda Fairlane – not sure if you can still purchase it, but sure you’ll have something else to wear it with in your inventory already ;-)


All textures for the items included in this set are created by Chandra Meehan for (*chanimations and deviousMind – if you find them used by anybody else not connected to us, please inform us! Thank you in advance!

More Info’s about “Down The Chimney Hunt”?

Starting December 6th 2009, this hunt is something completely different from what you’d expect of a christmas hunt – like Nuala Shippe, organizer of the hunt, put it so nicely to the point:

The hunt focused on what comes down the chimney, and is not so much turning you into the christmas tree yourself.


As already in Skipping Stones Hunt of late August, the winter hunt features again some of the best vintage, retro, bohemian, artsy type stores, and runs from December 6-20 2009 with approximately 100 stores (need to verify the number of those, not quite sure at moment)  – so just the right timeframe to log in and take a few stops here and there, and rest asured, you can wait with the unpacking of your hunt-gifts till well after christmas, they very likely will not turn out of season :-)

We’re excited to be part again of this great group of designers!
