SAKURA FESTIVAL!! - Hbox Residential

Two posts in one day! O_O

Hbox town will have an all day Sakura Festival on March 27th, to welcome spring a little sooner! There will be fireworks, dancing, and two contests as we all come together and have fun - in light of the crappy weather! We are gonna start at 12pm SLT and go on alllll day!

Residents have a chance to get a sakura tree, and will get 50 prims to decorate it however they like. Visitors and other residents can then come by, party with us, and vote on the best one! The winner will receive next months rent discounted! Wooo cheap living!

There will also be a yukata/kimono contest - with 1000L given away to the best voted on! I want to see all you pretty ladies in some gorgeous spring wear! Also there will be a chance to win a pre-release of our own Riki Yifu's gorgeous harajuku style Yukata!

I hope you will all join us :D

Love, Micah

Hbox welcomes Edelweiss!

We are thrilled to announce our newest store to Hbox City - Edelweiss!

Anyone that's into SL's lolita/cosplay scene knows how famous Edelweiss is, for their consistently accurate and extremely detailed dresses. Moeka Kohime strives to produce extremely realistic and whimsical cosplay, lolita, maid, and Japanese school uniforms. I have nearly all her dresses and I have to say - they are truly some of the BEST you will find in SL.

Come on down to see Edelweiss in Hbox at:

New Store Location! - Cats 'n Neos

Happy Sunday everyone!

Isn't this the Sunday where we turn the clocks ahead? o_O god where has the time gone!

Anyway I'm pleased to announce that one of our most popular marketplace stores has moved on up to a brand new larger store in Hbox! Cats 'n Neos has offered really innovative accessories ever since I've known it, and it still doesn't dissapoint me with the new clothes, hair, and shapes coming out! (oh and be sure to check our her glowing prim eyes.. they are really nice O_O )

C&N is still a newer store - and Hbox is so proud to see them moving up to a new main location with us! So to celebrate I went to the store and picked out an array of goods, made an outfit, and tromped around!

So cute right? And how happy am I to be strapped to a huge speed limit sign.. XD love it!

Shirt and skirt - C&N Rawr set
Collar - C&N Kyahkyu collar
Gloves - C&N Desired Revenge Gauntlets
Sign - C&N RE Limit 55

The skirt and shirt I especially like. The skirt is made of layers that are purposefully uneven, with the ends barely transparant. It gives a really cute punky look to it. The belt is attached, and really detailed nicely. The shirt is shaded really well and says Rawr! Who wouldn't think thats cute o.O

Barely anything in C&N ( save the shapes ) is over 150L. The shirt and skirt set only cost me 100! To find really cute things for low prices is always great, and finding a store that has a lot of variety of things makes me happy too. You can always find something you wanted and didn't even know it! Congrats Cats 'n Neos!

You can find C&N's new location by the mudkip fountain in Hbox. ( next to Bloodlust designs )
