The Christmas shop has demos of all our new releases for you to try, along with our favourite Christmas and winter things all in one cute place. Feel free to linger and take some pics in the garden.

-Hanaya- Old Fashioned Christmas Tree (Texture Change)

The first thing to try is our Old Fashioned Christmas Tree – click the tree to bring up the texture change menu to alternate between a light and dark wood finish on the wooden angel tree topper. Or change the textures on the tree skirt. The menu also contains Access Control, so you can decide who can play with your tree.

Please note that all elements of the tree (except the candles) are mesh, so if you increase the size, the land impact will increase accordingly.

-Hanaya- On Frozen Pond Picnic Set

I am Canadian, so I love hanging outside in cold snowy weather. For those of you who like that as well, we have 2 new products in our On Frozen Pond collection.

First is the On Frozen Pond Picnic Set – a mesh table and benches with 4 menu-driven single animations that seats up to four people. My fave animation is the one that gives you hot steamy coffee. Or click the pile of mesh snowballs on the table to get a throwable snowball. Just wear it, go into mouselook, aim at your friends, throw and watch it go SPLAT!

-Hanaya- Festive Chandelier with a Kiss ♥

I don’t know how about you, but I love to have accessories in my Second Life home that ‘do stuff’. By ‘doing stuff’, I mean stuff you can click on to change, and that includes animations.

The newly released Festive Chandelier from -Hanaya- does both of those things.
Sit on the mistletoe for a sweet kiss animation, touch the wreath to change the ornaments, and the metal colour.

And of course, you can turn the lights on and off – it is a  light fixture after all.

-Hanaya- Festive Chandelier (Texture Change)

The chandelier is provided in two versions, the full prim one includes 3 sizes of ornaments and mistletoe – all yummily sculpted. The different sizes of ornaments can be changed individually, and so can the metal finish of the chandelier. All changes are done via an easy-to-use menu. And since this version has mistletoe, it includes a couple kiss.

The couple kiss contains a pair of animations, and a matching pair of static poses for ease of taking a photo. Both are fully adjustable and are accessible via the built-in animation menu – no icky poseballs required!

The low prim version of the chandelier has a texture change for the metal (silver and gold) and is graced with a sculpted pine wreath.

 Instructions on how to use your -Hanaya- Festive Chandelier

Also included in this value-packed product are extra chain links in both metals, should you need to extend the length of the chain, as well as 2 optional ceiling medallions.

The Festive Chandelier (Texture Change) is now on display and available for sale at -Hanaya- in-world store. And for those of you wishing to gift it to a friend or loved one – pop over to our web store on the Second Life Marketplace.

Look for more new products for the festive season from -Hanaya- soon.

And please mark your calendar to come visit our store front at the
2012 SL Christmas Expo, which starts on December 6th.

Unhinged, a festival for Eku’s head

As a cancer survivor, I could get all serious and drag out sad stuff. But I won’t.

Because Unhinged, a festival to raise funds for … you know, Eku’s head …  is not about being sad. It is about friendship, helping, being positive, and taking control by doing something. And feeling really great as a result.

Both types of the wearables attach to the ‘root’ attachment point, so you can have them accompany you as you walk around, dance, sit or whatever you do during your day. If you like, you can also rez them, but careful! Some are a bit primmy.

The Stuff in the Pants GATCHA includes the following:

  • Jungle Book
  • TV + Music Nut
  • Birdbath
  • Sail Away
  • Gift Basket
  • Christmas Tree (this is the RARE item)
