“Ribboned & Ravishing: A Dolly Dress-Up Contest”

Ready to strut your stuff?! Well it’s that time of the hunt again. CONTEST TIME! The theme for this year is Ribboned & Ravishing. So that means pull out your favorite outfit and put on your ass-kicking shoes! From April 20th to May 10th you’ll have that chance!


But there are a few things that will differ from last years event, so please pay extra attention to the following:

★ Firstly, once the contest starts there will be a lovely little mailbox at the EoS/UTD mainstore that you will slip your NC Entry into. The information for the note card you need will be at the end of this post and the one you fill out and turn in. PLEASE do this, it makes our lives so much easier.

★ Secondly, The contest will be judged by a panel of twelve judges. The judges will be from all around the dolly world. Also their names will NOT be released to the public, to protect what’s left of their sanity(if they have any left).

★ Thirdly, if the runners in this contest perform asshattery and we (Beautiful Engineer and Rosey Faith), see it…You have the possibility of being disqualified purely on principle. We do not like asshattery. So please be on your best behavior. Also, if it was found that you cheated during the contest.. you WILL be disqualified from entering into the contest.

So now that we’ve gotta that outta the way, I’ll give you some more details of the contest. Like it says above the contest is titled “Ribboned & Ravishing: A Dolly Dress-Up Contest”. So basically the majority of the things you are wearing have to come from the hunt. We understand if you wear RLV and can’t remove it, just please include that in your entry NC and we won’t count it against you.

Your entries for the contest must be SNAPSHOTS. The snapshot cannot leave game, textures WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED. We believe that puts everyone on an even playing field. Now you’re allowed to mess with your environmental settings and so forth, but the entry cannot be edited outside of game. Again, we will not accept your entry if it’s textures.

★★★So the part you’ve all been waiting for…PRIZZZZZZES! ★★★


★First Place: Gets a shiny new penny! No seriously, the first place prize is 2500 L and a special custom skin from Beautiful Engineer OR a commission art piece from Rosey Faith.

★Second Prize: Receives a GOLD STAR! No really, the second place prize is 1000 L and a special custom skin from Beautiful Engineer OR a commission art piece from Rosey Faith.

★Third Prize: Gets a swift pat on their butt! No joking, the third prize is 500 L and a special custom skin from Beautiful Engineer OR a commission art piece from Rosey Faith.

The next SEVEN people to place in the Top 10 will receive a hand-shake! No LIKE REALLY, they will receive a custom skin from Beautiful Engineer of }}Edge of Sanity{{. There isn’t a different option here…no either or.

Thank you for taking the time to see this HUGE ramble of information and hope to see you in the contest.

- Rosey Faith and Beautiful Engineer! ♥♥

Ps - if you have a question that wasn't answered by this NC, please send a notecard to Rosey Faith with your question and you'll get an answer back.


Please fill this note card out truthfully and then rename it “Ribboned & Ravishing: -YOUR NAME HERE -” and place it in the mailbox at the store.

★ Name:

★ What part of being a dolly to you enjoy most?

★ Which part of the hunt was your favorite?

★ Are you wearing any RLV? If so, please list here what it is. So we have that for reference.

★ Please list here all the items you are wearing and please include the store name or hunt number. (We will allow you to wear your own shape, eyes, and hair. Those do NOT have to come from the contest.)

★ Please include your entries here, they must be snapshots. Limit two snapshots in your entry. Choose your snapshots carefully.

Imagine my surprise when I see this and it is only April 3rd.

Over 2 THOUSAND visits to the blog.

This doesnt event begin to count how many people are actually doing the hunt. There are so many out there within other groups not related to the hunt group itself that I send the NC for the hunt to as well (I am in several other hunt type groups).

I am so excited!

So many people love what we offer, are curious as to what "dolly is" and cater to us. Why? Because we are a SHOPPING FORCE.

We have grown as a community from more than just odd little clockwork dolls that fit into some fringe category of Steampunk. More than lifesize, walking, talking, Dead Dolls. More than freaky little latex covered beings within the BDSM genre and into a full on genre of our own.

You can see the growth simply by doing a search for dolls within the groups category of SL.

We have someone from FabFree working on a post for us, a full on article on The Torch, the entire hunt listed on SL Freebie Hunters, and it just keeps coming!

I want to thank every single one of our Designers and of course the hunters themselves. Just like last year, we invited all of the tippity top doll fashion designers and several of them never got back or declined. If we keep this up these stores wont dare to miss out!

If you have a favorite dolly store to shop at and you see that they are NOT in the hunt.... MSG THEM and ask that they become a part of NSA3 that will be held in November of this year!

The last couple of years I noticed that some things are lacking... so lets ask our favorite NON traditionally dolly type stores to create a line FOR US! Such as hair, shoes, jewelry, furniture, and houses!


Let's show everyone what Doll Power is all about!
