The Chieftain’s Daughter

The Chieftain's Daughter

As we all know, I am a huge fan of fantasy and role play, especially in Second Life. Today I was not simply Pru, I was the daughter of a Chieftain in some fabled tribe roaming the wilds of a distant land! To assist me in bringing this fantastical persona to life, I found this gorgeous headdress from Aisling. The Fangarth Headdress is one of their gacha items from a past event, however the gacha machine is now available for play at their main store. I also picked up one of the most recent group gifts from Luas. This daring outfit is called ” Chained Panther” and it includes the top, bottom, anklets, bracelets, and necklace all for free! I would like to note however that this outfit is not PG, if it weren’t for some artful poses I would have been showing off more than just my war paint… if you know what I mean! That said, if you like the outfit but aren’t prepared to show off that much flesh, a simple pair of panties would cover you and still work well with the look in my opinion. Speaking of war pant, the full body war paint Pru is wearing in the pictures is from Kun, it is tintable, and it costs a mere $10 lindens on the Marketplace.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Arabian Summer

Modern Harem Girl

Hello Everyone, hope you’ve all been having a wonderful day! I’ve got a pretty awesome gift to show you, thanks to our very own Love. Normally I might not have picked up this Harem gift from ALB. However, Love pointed it out to me, and I am so glad she did! I have to admit, she’s right, I’ve had a lot of fun with this one. Not only is the gift very cute on, I got tons of compliments on it while wearing it around. In addition it comes complete with a top, pants, shoes, and matching jewelry! I felt like some modern Arabian princess while taking the photographs. Needless to say you really do not want to miss out on this one.

Here are the details, enjoy!

Summer Breeze

LNS Poses Walking on Air

It’s time for some more Candy Factory goodness! First, I made a mistake in the last Candy Factory post. I said the theme was “Clouds” it isn’t. The theme is “Air”! Sorry for the mix-up, at least the two are related. :P

My little mix-up aside, I was excited to see some unique static poses from LNS at this round. These poses are sort of whimsical and ballet-like, especially for being static. There are five individual poses, each with a mirrored version available for ten total pose. These poses seem to be meant for the ballerina fairy costume from Co*Motion. The scrappy tattered skirt is really pretty, and there is some nice corseting detail in the back. You can also pick up matching wings from Co*Motion at The Candy Factory as well.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Hello…Mr. Tumnus…are you here?

With all the Fantasy type events and hunts going on right now, I figured it was high time I did a post that was fantasy related.

Narni1

The mesh Temperance dress I am wearing, as well as the fantastic Woodland Lampost I am standing beside are what you will receive when you find the butterfly at the MASH Fashion store. They are both included in the hunt prize for the Midsummer Nights Dream Hunt, and if you would like more information, and/or hints, here’s the link to the KastleRock Hunts Blog which has all that info and more. Every prize on this hunt is L$1, but every store is supposed to be supplying something for everyone, whether it be like MASH, with a women’s gift and a unisex gift, or a male gift, some even have gifts for petites. I love hunts where everyone can be happy :)

NarniaCollage3

Staying within my fantasy mood, I hit up this round of The Fantasy Room, and found this beautiful headband from GED. The Ethnic Swirls headband, in silver, is only L$50, but if you prefer gold, there is also a gold version available. I love the delicate swirl right in the middle of my brow, I feel like an elf princess with this piece, I just need the pointy ears now!

My last stop was at a more sci-fi event, The Nexus. There, I played the Nova Gacha for Origami SLink nailpolish, at just L$25 a play. I lucked out and actually got matching peach finger and toe polish after only 4 tries! I really like the pixellated look of this polish, and can see myself wearing it quite often. I’ve included a picture of the vendor so you can see the different colour combinations that are available.

Narnia2

So, what do you think? As I was taking my picture, being photo-bombed by a roaming ferret, I was expecting characters from the Narnia books to just pop out of the trees.  Fantasy is one of my favourite genre’s, and I really should do more posts like this. Expect more from me!

Until next time, I’m going to go check and see if that ferret can talk :) TTFN!

Today’s Top 10 Hunts

Poster MF Hunt 12 2014 square alpha frameGood morning fabulous fans! Here’s a listing of what’s hot in the hunt world today: Tuesday, July 8.

Fantasy is the name of the game today! Three of the top four hunts on our list are fantasy related, so if you’re a fan of wizards, orcs, goblins, and paladins you’ll definitely want to check these out. The Medieval Fantasy Hunt is a very well done hunt and this is its twelfth season. The theme this time out is “Spirits of Nature.”

Just a reminder, that these are the 10 most popular viewed hunts over the past 48 hours or so. We don’t know how many people actually start (or finish) any given hunt.

See you out on the hunt!

It’s Canada Day eh! Yes, I really do say eh.

Canada1

Happy Canada Day to all my fellow Canucks! I hope today is a day full of BBQ, maybe a beer or 2 (or 3) and fireworks!  I thought I’d put together a FabFree-esque look for my Canada day, and I lucked out and found a BBQ to go to.

Canada2

Almost everything I have on was found on the Marketplace. In fact, I had given my Mom a heads up about keeping an eye out for cute Canadian things in her SL travels, next thing I knew, my IM was flooded with links to great Marketplace finds. One of them being this super cute mesh dress. The Babele Fashion Simply Mesh Canada dress is L$50 and comes with a pair of cute system feet heels as well (which I am not wearing). IDK why, but I just love the little detail of the pocket on the front, it’s a perfect place to put your beer tokens in if you are out at an event with a beer garden! Whoever said the stereotype of Canadians liking beer is not true, is wrong…well, at least for this girl :)

The next must have for my outfit, fitting in with the fact that I am in Western Canada, and on the prairies, is my fun cowboy hat. Make that cowgirl hat ;) The EC Canada Flag Hat is from Ella’s Creation’s, and is only L$25.

In keeping with the kinda-cowgirl theme, I needed boots! I wasn’t able to find any Canada day themed ones that I wanted, but I did find a pair that intrigued me. The Riders Navarro Boots are free, and they are actually a starter kit. You get the boots, with 3 basic textures, Black, Brown and Pink. The neat thing is, you can then buy add-ons for them, such as different textures, toe caps, spurs, you name it. There was even a pack with flowers in it that I saw. Those add-ons, however, are not free. Honestly though, the boots are so fantastic as is, I really don’t feel like I am missing out too much by only having access to the basics.

My final addition, I had already had in my inventory, but are still available on the Marketplace. The Hopscotch Maple Nails for SLink hands and feet are only L$1, and they are the perfect icing to my Canadian outfit cake!

Speaking of cake, they have a cake here at this cute little BBQ being put on by Divnity. You should really come check it out, and for all the Americans reading this, right beside the Canada Day setup is a 4th of July set up. So, to all those dual-citizens, you only need to go to one place for both parties! How great is that :)

Oh, I almost forgot, if you don’t have any fireworks to go to, you can get your own mini one, a sparkler that is! Plethora put out a pack of handheld sparklers for Lazy Sunday this past weekend, but they are still available at the store for the Lazy Sunday price of L$75. You get 7 different colours, plus a Red, White and Blue colour changing one.

OK., I am off to find some more festivities, hopefully ending with fireworks. Hope you all have a great Canada Day! TTFN

Guest Blog by Geoffrey Edwardstone – The Riches of the Silk Road

Another fabulous guest blog by Geoffrey Edwardstone, originally blogged [HERE]
Greetings from the Orient, all you deal-seekers.  The Silk Road Hunt (hunt website here) organized by Historical Hunts is running until June 30, and has some fabulous gifts that are completely free.  There are 102 stops on this hunt, each one having a male and female or a unisex free gift. The theme this year is “Ali Baba and the 40 Thieves”, so you will find the gifts focusing on the Middle East and Arabia. No blog post can do justice to the many beautiful things you can find traveling the Silk Road this year, but let me give you a taste of what you will find.

This hunt is features many buildings, furniture and other decor items, but there are also a few clothing items.  First off let me show you a combination of two clothing gifts.  The Ali Baba headdress, vest, sword, and leather wrist cuffs in this picture come from Goddess Fantasies (#05 SRH5), while the pants and belt are the gift at Rag Dollz (#032 SRH5).  There are some pretty nice women’s clothing gifts at both of these stores too.

Image

 

Shown above:

Headress, vest, sword, wrist cuffs:  Goddess Fantasies – Ali Baba (#05 Silk Road Hunt 5 gift/free)

Pants, belt:  Rag Dollz – Thieves Quest (#032 SSRH5 gift/free)


Now let me pan back my camera a bit and show you the gorgeous building I’m standing in front of.  It’s the Ali Baba Tower, the Silk Road Hunt gift from Salome Designs (#09 SRH5).  It’s a gorgeous two story hexagonal Arabian-style building with a hanging fire pot and a balcony walkway around the second story inside.  And remember – it’s absolutely free!

Image

You can furnish your building with the room divider with plants, a chair and table from Hearth & Home (#012 SRH5) shown on the left below, or with the burl tables, dressing screen and plant stand, all gifts from An Lema (#018 SRH5) shown on the right.

Image

Shown above:

Ali Baba Tower: Salome Designs (#09 SRH5 gift/free)

Room Divider with plants, chair, table: Hearth & Home  (#012 SRH5 gift/free)

Secret of the Thieves Burl tables, Thieves Dressing Screen, Riches of Persia Plant Stand: An Lema (#018 SRH5 gift/free)


Another of the buildings available as gifts on the Silk Road Hunt is the  Arabian Temple found at Dragon Magick Wares (#020 SRH5).  It has lovely carved wood windows and the interior textures are amazing.

Image

You can see more of the interior of this building here because I’ve furnished it with the Scroll Floor Lamp, the gift from Kismet (#035 SRH5) and the Thieves Rest Bench, floor pillows, lamp, plant from Dreamscape Wedding Designs (#051 SRH5) in the top picture, and Salman’s Rug 4two from Sweet Sorrows (#041 SRH5).  This is mighty sweet decor whether your furnishing a Middle Eastern building or just a beachside house.

Shown above:

Arabian Temple: Dragon Magick Wares (#020 SRH5 gift/free)

Scroll Floor Lamp (3 sizes including table):  Kismet (#035 SRH5 gift/free)

Thieves Rest Bench, floor pillows, lamp, plant:  Dreamscape Wedding Designs (#051 SRH5 gift/free)

Salman’s Rug 4two (M/F/Cuddles):  Sweet Sorrows (#041 SRH5 gift/free)


 

There are quite a few fun gifts on this hunt as well.  Two of my favorites are the Relaxing Magic Carpet made by Potpourri Designs (#039 SRH5) and the Hide n’ Peek Jars, the hunt gift at Sheds n Shacks (#079 SRH5).  It may not be clear from the picture below, but the Relaxing Magic Carpet hovers up and down (but doesn’t actually fly and can’t be steered).  The Hide n’ Peek Jars allow three people to hide in or between the various jars in the set.  Very handy if you are one of the 40 thieves.

Image

Shown above:

Relaxing Magic Carpet (it hovers):  Potpourri Designs (#039 SRH5 gift/free)

Hide n’ Peek Jars (seats 3):  Sheds n Shacks (#079 SRH5 gift/free)


If all you want for your desert oasis is some water and an elegant spot to rest, you can’t beat the tile oasis with water pool from Pierre Ceriano (#022 SRH5).  After refreshing yourself at the pool, you can rest on the cushions that surround this lovely low table from Park Place Home Decor (#027 SRH5).  The cushions and table come with the plate and table lamp shown in the picture.

Image

Shown above:

Tile Oasis:  Pierre Ceriano (#022 SRH5 gift/free)

Low table with cushions, plate, lamp:  Park Place Home Decor (#027 SRH5 gift/free)


And for the more nomadically-minded you can find the blue and gold satin tent on the left in the picture below at Botanica (#093 SRH5), and the elaborate furnished tent with pillows on the right at ~XM~ Designs (#30 SRH5). Both come with elegant working lanterns.

Image

Shown above:

On the left: Blue gypsy tent – Botanica (#093 SRH5 gift/free)

On the left: Arabian tent - ~XM~ Designs (#30 SRH5 gift/free)


Finally, so that you don’t think there are just two men’s clothing gifts on the Silk Road Hunt, I must show you several of the many, many gifts available at stop #085, the Mountain Rose Shops.  This single stop on the main hunt offers a “mini hunt” among the several stores at that location, and you can pick up a total of nineteen prizes there.  Some are furnishings and buildings, and others are clothing.  Each of the clothing gifts includes men’s, boy’s, ladies, girls, and child versions.  As you’ll see from my pictures, the Mountain Rose Shops did not just limit themselves to an Arabian theme, but rather created clothing gifts from across the entire Silk Road route.  In several of these pictures I am wearing the red Ali shoes, the men’s hunt gift from Lindy Modern Shoes (#082).  But here are the clothing gifts from the Mountain Rose Shops:

Image

Shown above (all prizes from the mini-hunt at the Mountain Rose Shops):

#1  Arab Prince:  Mountain Rose Shops (19 gift minihunt)  (#085 SRH5 minihunt gift/free)

#2  Beggar:  Mountain Rose Shops (19 gift minihunt)  (#085 SRH5 minihunt gift/free)

#3:  Indian Prince – Mountain Rose Shops (19 gift minihunt)  (#085 SRH5 minihunt gift/free)

#4:  Mongolian Prince (with boots) – Mountain Rose Shops (19 gift minihunt)  (#085 SRH5 minihunt gift/free)

#5:  Venetian Nobleman – Mountain Rose Shops (19 gift minihunt)  (#085 SRH5 minihunt gift/free)

Shoes: Ali Red – Lindy Modern Shoes (#082 SRH5 gift/free)


Geoffrey is also wearing:

Skin:  Belleza – Shawn Deep Tan (group gift/$350L to join)

Eyes:  [dirty.little.secret] Black eyes (former group gift)
