I’m going to be honest and tell you all that it’s been a really long time since I’ve found a hunt worth my time and effort. There was a period of time when there were 4-5 hunts running at any given time and the rewards rarely reflected the quality that the store offering them was capable of. And, I get it. It’s a free item. I’m not expecting a full mesh outfit complete with accessories for completing my search, but it’s nice to feel like some effort was put into the prize. If you give me a prize that I WANT to wear, chances are I will return to your store to purchase more things.
The point of my mini-rant is that the Wayward Hunt is here and not only is the list of participating stores long and filled with big names and awesome up and coming brands, but the prizes are top quality. They are items you’d expect to see boxed for purchase in their stores (in some cases, they literally are special edition recolored versions of full price products!!). The hunt is being organized by Wayward Events, who were formerly ZombiePopcorn, and if you remember ZP, you remember that they always seemed to have pretty high standards when it came to their events. A change of name has not changed their vision.
The bottom line is that you need to get out there and start hunting. YOU WILL NOT BE SORRY.
I’ll be showcasing various Wayward Hunt prizes in my upcoming posts beyond this one, but if you’d like more information RIGHT NOW, head to the Wayward Events website here: http://waywardevents.com/
Welp, I feel like a sell out. You see, I have been mesh breast-less up until now, with firm conviction. The mesh breast phase just wasn’t for me. Besides the fact that I was perfectly happy with my small chest, I was also a bit resentful. A lot of my favorite designers were focusing their efforts on putting out applier-friendly clothing which to me seemed to be taking several steps back from the new beautiful mesh offerings. Not that it was any reflection of the QUALITY of work, but it required reverting back to system layer clothing which I had been more than happy to leave in the past.
After months of resistance, however, I am in possession of a set of Lolas. Now, it must be said that these were FORCED upon me by a friend who asked for my assistance with a photoshoot (I kid, I kid… sorta ♥), but I suppose it’s good that I’m finally getting with the times. I will say that I did consider buying them a few times, for various reasons. I’ve seen a few artistic photos on Flickr where they were realistically sized and thought “oh, I do like that look!” and sometimes I’ve felt guilty that I wasn’t able to blog review copies of applier-friendly clothing, but I was not yet ready to embrace the mesh breast craze. I’m not sure I’m ready even now and I’m sure they won’t become a staple of my every day look, but they’ll be fun to wear every now and then, especially for blogging.
So, here’s to many mesh breastventures!
