The Peace on Earth Hunt (POE) is my favorite hunt every year. It comes during the holiday season, and offers free gifts from most of the major content creators in Second Life™. I have friends who look askance at freebies in SL, but in my opinion, not only are they great, but hunts can introduce you to new stores and new shopping opportunities. This year, the sixth time the hunt is being offered, there are over 200 prizes, with delights for everyone: Skin, poses, men's clothes, furniture, jewelry, and gowns galore.
A Little Disappointing News - Maybe:
My usual hunt report procedure is to show the prizes, and give the reader a SLurl to the prize location, but the Peace on Earth Hunt organizer, Sequoia Nightfire has not provided the names of the participating venues. I will provide you with the names of the content creators, but I will leave you to find the stores, and locate the hunt item: a globe of the world with doves on it. The hint blog is here: http://peaceonearthhunt.

The quality of the gifts in POE6 is not up for negotiation. The white cat that circles Desirée, my alt, is from the great KittyCats who make breedable kittens that interact in very lifelike ways. This kitty, chasing a halo and moving its tails and paws does not require food, and will happily accompany you on all of your rounds. Remember that this is free, and very much worth it.
The dress is from LivGlam, the Dance Like This, and it's original mesh, with delicate ruffles on the neckline and cuffs. The shiny black pumps are from Lindy Modern and Retro Shoes, and will remain a staple of Desirée's wardrobe.The screen and carpet are and by Sequoia Style , the bah humbug signs by Nexus Arts, the skin is the Elena Skin by Styles by Kira. Everything you see is free, even the hair which is an old group gift from Eaters Coma.
This picture was taken at the Christmas Town 2013, (Elizabeth Town sim), and highlights just one amazing complete outfit, the Très Beau "Celtic Crimson," that looks to me like something a Russian princess would wear.
Sascha's Design's prize is this amazing sky blue gown, that would be perfect for any holiday event. Sascha Frangilli has been designing since 2007, and has won several Avi Choice Awards. Her gowns are well known for their glamorous details.
We are so happy the Sway Dench (Sway's) is back in world and creating. For POE6 she offers a Yin-Yang Shelf that comes, as shown, with items in it, or bare, so you can put your own goodies in it.The POE Shirt and Sweater come from Legal Insanity, and make a nice alternative from all the holiday glitter. The neko ears and fluffy tail come from Shattered. There are also undecorated ears and a slender tail in the prize globe, and everything is animated.
Desirée went wild with these gold items, although DrFran doesn't much care for prim nails. The stunning dress by Journey for Prism is the Babe, and the +WTG+ Holy Gold jeweled nails come with a great sizing HUD, so that they will fit almost everybody.
The Shimmer Dress from Gizza was one of the nicest items in the hunt. It's old-school in that it's not mesh, but the sparkle layer on the skirt is dazzling. Paired with the blue skin from Dulce Secrets, the Bliensen + MaiTa
i Ison Earrings, and Chop Zuey's Men's Gift—Black Tooth Grin Necklace Desirée looks mighty attractive, and she didn't have to spend a lot.
This Epais Dress from Snowpaws is very reminiscent of the dress worn by Shimmer in the first Hunger Games movie. It is ethereal and whimsical at the same time. Desirée opted for the Ison earrings again, because they went so well.
The last picture displays an astounding, complete holiday living room that is complete with working fireplace, and comfy chairs with great sit poses. Dench Designs has created a true masterpiece. Desirée remained in this room, and had to be cajoled to continue the hunt. She finally agreed to continue, and left wearing the mesh QUEEN gown from EVOLVE.

This hunt will run until January 6, 2014, and since it's so big, you had best get started now. There is a hunt group, and its members are chatty and helpful. Of course, there is more to come. Stay tuned for a summary of the choicest gifts from POE6.
