A Blonde Sienna in Violets

Snapshot_002

Hi Fabulouses!  I have news of an amazing new free gift by Finesmith, and if you are a fan of purple… you won’t want to  miss out on this fabulously free outfit!

After you join the Finesmith inworld group (which is free), you can pick up a couple of gifts, but the most recent gift is this one that includes the mesh dress, Slink Add-on Shoes (high feet), choker, bracelet, slink fingernail appliers and also the shimmering violet hat, which is in my hand.

The reason my hat is in my hand today instead of on my head is because I also wanted to show you this great new group gift at LeLutka!  Now at the mainstore, inworld group members can activate their free LeLutka group tags and pick up the new Sienna Hair that comes in a full fatpack of shades!  Sienna is a sassy angled bob, and a must have as an inventory staple!  There are also a few previous group gifts available still for picking up if you have missed them in the last few months.

The good news… you still have time! Bust a move and get out there. You can still score some hunt gifts if you’re quick about it!

More good news… I’ll have a whole bunch of new hunts for you to explore when I bring you Your Friday Hunt Report this week. A big shiny bunch of August hunts are all set to kick off. Yay!

Poke the names here for more info. You know you want to!

HUNT SL battle of the sexes for himGood morning fabulous fans! Here’s a listing of what’s hot in the hunt world today: Tuesday, July 29 .

The Battle of the Sexes hunts continue to lead the pack this week, with the Aloha Fair (not really a hunt) holding down third place. Around the Grid In 80 Days, Aqua Splash, and Dark Fantasy hunts are still making a strong showing even weeks into their runs. People really seem to be enjoying their hunting!

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.

Be the best Bone Collector you can be, with flowers!

Hello my FabFreebers! So how has your weekend been? Mine, as usually, was pretty uneventuful..although, some would call it ‘Calle being lazy’ :P I like these kinds of days, because it means that I get a chance to do a little more exploring around SL than I normally get to do. One of the places on my list I’ve been wanting to take a look at, is the Isle of Dee, especially once I saw the notices about the Bone Collector Quest.  I’ll tell you a little about the quest, and then, of course, tell you about my outfit :)

BoneCollector1

He was to collect the bones and bring them to the God
so he may breathe life back into them.
But scared, the Bone Collector ran…
The bones and ingredients are scattered all over the Isle.

Are you brave enough to help?

When you first land at the Isle of Dee, to your left is the board where you will get your HUD and a notecard about the quest. Read the notecard, attach the HUD, and your adventure starts! The hunt for the objects will take you all over the Isle, so it really gives you a chance to see this lovely build. I will warn you, while the objects are pretty well in plain sight, the tricky part is deciphering the riddles to find out where each object is. Once you have collected all the items, and found where the Greenman dwells, there is a second riddle where you have to speak the magic word to receive your gifts. This was a fun little quest and probably took me about 2 hours from start to finish, with quite a bit of extra exploring. At the end of it,  you get a little reward of a super fun hat with a replica of the skeleton you were running around collecting pieces of, as well as a shoulder pet of said skeleton, and a home decor wall piece that will give you a yes, no or maybe answer to a question you ask it, again, with the cute little skeleton on it and the Greenman himself.

BoneCollector3

Now, what am I wearing? Well, the theme of the Isle of Dee is supposed to be around 1400’s, medieval England, so I wanted to look the part. While it is not mandatory, it is encouraged. There is a board at the landing site that will send you to a little area with freebies, including a full female and male av, but I just wanted to find myself a nice dress, so to the Marketplace I went. I ended up finding a great freebie, Ulla by Madison’s Creations. I was even able to tint all layers to make the dress more my own, and as you can see, I went with a nice dark green colour, a nod to the Greenman. It has all system layers, a prim skirt, and prim arm pieces, which I was not wearing. It is a nice simple dress that will work for most any kind of period roleplay.

BoneCollector2

Although I promised there would not be a time cruncher again, if you like the poses I am using, which includes the flower in my hand, it is a pack of 5 poses, each with a flower, from Vanity Poses, as a limited time L$1 gift. They recently moved their store and have redecorated, so they thought they would give out a present. Take a look across from them at Bounce This Poses, they have a freebie gift put out for you as well.

OK, Sunday is drawing to a close for me, and I still have things to do to get ready for that pesky thing called RL work…so, for now, I bid you adieu, until next time.

Gorean Feathers

White Gorean

 

Recently it was pointed out to me that in my last few posts I’ve been wearing very little clothing. After a second of thought, I laughingly agreed. It seems “less is more” has been my accidental theme for the week. So today, I decided to continue with the tradition, and show off a little Gorean style gear I picked up at the current round of The Fantasy Room.

Seriously, I love fantasy fashion in Second Life. I love fashion of all kinds, don’t get me wrong, but there is a special place in my wild little heart that loves fantasy themed or inspired looks. For those like me, The Fantasy Room is an amazing event where you can pick up incredible items at a discounted price for the duration of the event. If I had unlimited funds, I’d grab up everything there!

Really enjoying the jewel tones of the feathers in my Fantasy Room haul, I was uber excited to get a notice about the latest group gift from The Sugar Garden. Right now VIP members can pick up a very pretty set of eyes from the VIP Penthouse. The eyes almost have a water-color look to them, which I think is quite striking. Don’t forget that a group tag is required to enter the room!

Before I give you the break down, I want to tell you about this outfit I picked up from Sweet Lies Original at The Fantasy Room. This fun and feathery ensemble includes so many pieces. For just $50 lindens you get scripted and non-scripted anklets, bracelets, the feathered skirt, ear-ornaments (not pictured), hair-ornaments (not pictured), the bra top and matching thong, not to mention appliers for Lolas Tango and Phat Azz. That is awesome! In addition to my outfit from Sweet Lies, I couldn’t resist the Nativa set from Luas, also at The Fantasy Room. This set is just $50 lindens as well, and it includes a beautiful ear-cuff and face-chain set. To complete the look, and because I couldn’t resist the gacha, I tried my luck and got these cute purple flat sandal boots by Una. All in all, I really like this look a lot. I hope you do too!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Guest Blog by Geoffrey Edwardstone – More from the Medieval Fantasy Hunt

Guest Blog by Geoffrey Edwardstone, originally blogged [HERE].

I didn’t want my first post on the Medieval Fantasy Hunt (MFH XII) to run on for too long, but I do have a few more great gifts from that hunt to show.  Check that earlier post to get the general information about the hunt blog and how the hunt works.  MFH XII not only has clothing, a number of the merchants are offering furniture and outdoor objects for medieval and fantasy role-players.

Lacrime dell’anima’s (MFH XII #35) free gift on this hunt is the Spirits of Nature Table set shown in the next picture.  It features four tree stump chairs animated with various sit poses arranged around a cut tree table (the lantern on the table comes with it), all set in a lovely field of flowers.  If you’re looking to fit out a rural or fantasy setting, this is exactly what you need.   Next to me in back of the table set is the Viking Wagon from the Independent Objects shop (MFH XII #26).  Although it’s not scripted to be pulled by a horse or a person, it does have several nice cuddle poses for just hanging out with your special someone.

3Lacrime&IO(MFH#35&26)_001Along the same lines, United Inshcon (MFH XII #1) is giving away this Water Pond to MFH hunters.  It’s a nice little pond surrounded by rocks and grass tufts, and contains a wood tree branch for sitting and two wooden docks.  You can see me sitting on the dock at the far end, but the dock at the nearer end near the log has a diving animation so that you can land yourself in the water if you try to sit on the dock.  Really great fun, but try as I might I couldn’t manage a photo of me diving.

4United Inschcon(MFH#01)_001~*Sweet Revolutions*~ (MFH XII #02) is giving as it’s free hunt gift the “Yggdrasil – Der Weltenbaum.”  I’m not sure what “Yggdrasil” means, but “Der Weltenbaum” translates to “world tree” and it is a very realistic looking season changeable tree.  I happened to find this tree already rezzed on Sweet Revolutions’ region and snapped the picture below.  But to my surprise I discovered that the green, moss-covered ruins with the pretty lilac-colored flowers that is right in front of the tree is Sweet Revolutions’ prize in the Midsummer Nights Dream 5 grid wide hunt (MND5 #09) which is also running during July.  Here’s a link to the MND5 blog page where you can find out more about this hunt, but at least you get a peek at one of the gifts here.

5SweetRevolutions(MFH#02MNDH)_001And finally, the last item I’m going to show you from the Medieval Fantasy Hunt XII, is a complete avatar called the Elemental Wisp, the free hunt gift from Lilith’s Den (MFH XII #04).  That’s actually me in the picture looking like a free-floating green mop.  The avatar comes with complete body alpha and all those swirly floaty attachments.  The attachments include animations which make you float about in the breeze even if you are not actually flying or walking yourself.  I normally don’t go for these fantasy fairy-like things, but this one is fun and quite unusual.

9 Lilith's Den (#4MFH XII)_001So there you have it – more useful and fun things from the Medieval Fantasy Hunt.

Just a Delicate Peach

Delicate Peach

Okay, I admit it, I do get some secret delight out of pairing these fierce, sexy gladiator shoes with a sweetly simple dress! I’m not sure what you would call this style, but I really like it. :) The moment I saw these shoes from Whatever, I knew they had to be mine. These pastel-peachy colored knee-high gladiator style heels are fully mesh and have awesome detail. Whatever VIP Group members can pick them up for free at the main store along with several other gifts. The sweet-looking dress I picked out to go with the gladiator shoes is a July gift from SkullCandy on the Marketplace. The pretty pastel peach of the dress is the perfect match for the shoes. Also, for what I am certain is a limited time, WoW Skins has this gorgeous skin “Lisa” in tan for just $10 lindens! I really hope you like my little demon lolita look! :D Oh! One more quick note, my manicure and pedicure are from Nail Me!.  They are the 100 group members gift which was sent out in a group notice again recently. This 100 Butterflies gift will be retired soon, so if you don’t have it yet, get it!

Romantic Rosamarie

Snapshot_001Hi Fabulouses! I hope you have survived your Monday ok ;).  Even if it was really cruddy… I have some news that might just make your day if you are a fan of Junbug’s designs!

Junbug is participating in The Secret Affair and has the most beautiful three piece Rosamarie gown that you can play for in several different colours in a gacha machine.  After some piece swapping with my good friend Suz (yes they are transfer, so you can swap or gift!!), I was lucky enough to complete a few different colours, but this one is by far my favourite.  I am wearing the blush skirt, blush frilled knickers and the rare floral corset.  Each piece is 50L per play.  Make sure you try the demo first to see which size fits you best as you only play for the size you want to purchase.

*sighs*  I don’t even want to take this off, but I know I must, once this blog is done so that I can show you something else!  Want to see another colour tomorrow?  How about Azure!  That might be my second favourite.  he he.. ok ok.. I’ll show you something else.  Before I go, I also wanted to tell you about some of the other things I am wearing too.

The Keystone Nicolette Headpiece can be found priced at 50L per play at The Secret Affair and as you can see looks lovely with Exile’s new release “Blown Away” at the Hair Fair.  Now this hair is 250L per colour pack, but 25% of your purchase will go to Wigs for Kids which is “Fabulous” in my books!  Exile also has a delish dollarbie at The Hair Fair that you’ll want to snag – Tiana showed it to you [HERE] in case you missed it!

The skin I am in today is WoW Skins Lana which is currently being featured at Project Limited.  Only 50 fatpacks will be sold so if you love this skin – act quickly!

The quest fur cover, not just for fuzzbutts! (Part 1!)

RAWR! Hey fabbies! I have a hunt that’s a bit different to show you today! Quest fur cover is a completely FREE hunt that caters towards the furry residents in SL, however, almost all of the items in the hunt can be used by humans and furries alike, so jump in and start the quest!

The quest fur cover, not just for fuzzbutts! (Part 1!)_001
Shop #1, Furry fashion, has 2 hunt gifts for you to find!

The quest fur cover, not just for fuzzbutts! (Part 1!)_002
The gift from Shop #2, project mayhem industries, is actually a mod for an avatar I sadly do not have. I hear that their gift is an absolutely adorable dalmatian mod for the DSD ardawolf. #3’s gift, the tiny tack shed from ladies pleasure is a cute little building that would be perfect for a small house, or many other applications

The quest fur cover, not just for fuzzbutts! (Part 1!)_003
Shop #4, Winry’s whimsey, is extra generous, and has 5 gifts inside their little icon! There are 3 sets of eyes with multiple options for a ton of avis, and are mod, so they can even fit humans! The 2 I’m showing in the bottom half of the pic above have a version for my avatar right in the box! In the bottom half, you can see the 2 mouth noms that are the other gifties from shop # 4. The soap even bubbles when you type!

and finally, shop #5, SugarFluff has 2 gifties that can be yours, if you can find the hunt icon. The first gift is a whole outfit set, done in great bright candy colours and complete with a sweetie purse and a cute crown headband. Their second gift is one you can share! The yours and mine ring set comes with one ring to keep and one to give to someone special. These are open collar scripted, but are mod for easy removal, and the pack includes both an owner HUD and a sub AO, just in case that’s your cup of tea!
