To the Lords and Ladies of the Fabulous Realm…

Greetings Oh Fabulous Ones,

druid 1_001

I have just returned from a far away land of Gacha and I come bearing many splendid treasures for you, fine gentle folk.

Okay, imagine I was saying that in a fancy Olde English accent!

The Fantasy Gacha Carnival is open for business and there actually ARE many a splendid offing there. Eighty one designers have come together and set out some very fine fantasy gear for us this November with most offering two or more gachas. The Carnival runs until November 30th so you only have a little time left to get your Medieval on! You can check out the website for a preview here. One of the best things about this Carnival is the ton of men’s items here. Many of the vendors offered both male and female selections or unisex items.

First up is Zenith’s Druid. I love the wooden vines that twist and curl around the upper armor and bracers. Zooming in shows the delicate texture of bark and twigs. The simple linin skirt moves well and sets off the detailed leather works.  I was lucky enough to pull both of the rares on this machine! The branching crown AND the two handed wand. I was thrilled to find a “new to me” hair vendor at the Carnival! I’m wearing Blues’ hair in ‘Grace’
druid coll.

 

Next up is a Ranger outfit from !gO!  I didn’t pull the rare but I was lucky enough to get the jacket and the skirt in the same color and style. !gO!’s booth has both a men’s machine and outfit as well as the girl’s selection. The pose is from Rack Poses and their “priestess” gacha. There are six common poses and one rare couple pose. They all come with the eagle prop! At 50L a play, I grabbed several.  I’m also wearing Little Bones ‘Ranger’ hair in the Landslide pack.

Lastly, I wanted to show you the rest of the Snow Queen set from The Annex.  In addition to the beautiful pearl earrings and chocker, this set has a pair of pearl ‘eye lashes’ and a diadem. There’s also a gorgeous crown but I wasn’t lucky enough to pull it. :(  Maybe next time.  The gown comes in a plethora of colors so I just picked my favorites: Forest, Twilight and Calypso.

I’m also wearing Damselfly’s blowin’ around hair “Gretchen.”  The rare also comes with a set of butterflies woven into the locks. I love the dynamic of the piece. Sure makes for a great picture!

Your Friday Hunt Report

HUNT SL lets give thanks hunt 2 PICGreetings once again Fabulistas!  It’s time for your Friday Hunt Report and I would normally come up with some pithy comments about all the cool hunts going on right now, but I just got home from a very long drive and I’m BEAT. So… I’ll just let the hunts speak for themselves. Check them out! There are a bunch of fun hunts going on right now.

If you’re new to the sport, hunting is easy. You follow clues to find hunt objects in a kind of scavenger hunt… either in just one store or region, or hopping from region to region. Some are easy, others a bit more challenging, but mostly they’re just plain fun. FabFree and HUNT SL both have pages with tips to help get you started.

So let’s do this hunting thing!  Just poke the names for more information on each hunt.

See you out on the hunt!

Once Upon a Time…

BrothersGrimm1_001

Hello FabFree Folks!

I’ve been on the hunt again! This time I delved into the darker world of fairy tales with the Brothers Grimm Hunt.  This is a 2L per prize hunt and it has some very nifty things.  First up is the mesh Peasant dress from ..elation..  This was a new to me store and I very much enjoyed checking it out. The dress is very well made and moves nicely. I bet it would be perfect for a fantasy RP.  It was the perfect costume to find Potpourri Designs “Poisoned Apple on a Stone Pillar.” The pillar is a great prop for a picture or an RP but it is more than just a prop. It comes in several versions with and without the apple.  Completing the scene is the “Aponi” hair style from EMO-tions. This is one of the several in-store Gachas at the mainstore. I’m wearing the “naturals 3″, a pretty taffy blonde.

One nice thing about this particular Hunt is there are a varity of styles for the prizes. I found the fantasy/medieval dress then found this funky tank top/short dress. This is B-UniQ’s “The Raven”.  Again, so nicely made!  I’m not daring enough to wear it alone so I paired it with these dollarbie black leggings from [Eve n Better] found on the Marketplace.  Topping off my look is the Argrace Welcome gift hair “Minato” which Tiana Omizu and Love Trill  showed us here.

Down The Street I’m The Girl Next Door

Hello everyone. I’ve been absent for a couple of days due to feeling a bit on the sickly side but Im starting to feel better so I am back to show more great goodies you can find around the grid.

Today I am going to be showing you some things from The Kawaii Project. These adorable dresses by Katat0nik are the epitome of cute. I about fainted when I saw them in the gacha’s, because for L$75 a pull, its a steal! Whats even better is you have the choice between standard fitmesh for regular avatar bodies and a fitmesh that works beautifully with the SLink Physique body!
Untitled

There are several different styles to play for in the Gacha, so I couldn’t resist showing you a couple more that I won. Especially as I am completely smitten by them! It also gave me the opportunity to show you a couple more of the colours of the Hair Bows from the group gift by Glow Designs! Their group is L$10 to join and you get a bumper pack of hair bows in the gift!
Untitled

Another aside is this really sweet skin that is the Hee skin by VCO. This is the rare prize in their gacha filled with Hee Lip tattooes and is L$69 per pull!
Untitled

Back to The Kawaii Project, if you join the event group you can find two really great gifts. One is a set of really pretty nail varnishes for SLink hands and Belleza hands by Quirk. Below you can see the HUD so you can see the colours available.

Untitled

The other free group gift for the event is this really fun Couch and rug set that is by Atomic! The little plush toys are from the Exposure gacha at the event! I couldn’t resist showing you the four that I won and there are others to try for too!

Untitled

This round of the Kawaii Project is open until 29th November so you have plenty of time to take a trip to Cutesville!

From Autumn to Winter

I hope everyone has had a good week! I know I’ve been hitting the blog with quickies over the last few days but hopefully I will have some longer posts over the coming days!
Untitled

With the weather growing much much colder up here in the north, its wonderful to see some really great snuggly clothing filling the stores. Winter always have been my favourite month as I much prefer to curl under blankets and in cuddly sweaters and cardigans.. plus the possibility of snow always makes me so excited!

If you are starting to explore the sims around SL that are beginning to make the change from Autumn to Winter, then this full outfit from Firelight Creations will be the perfect thing for you expeditions! It comes complete with the coat, leggings and fluffy boots and whats more its all for free as their gift in The Whiteout Hunt!

Channeling Angels In The New Age Now

Untitled

Oooo another quickie from me! Argrace has sent out a new welcome gift through their Susbcriber Group! If you are already a member you will have got the update automatically so check your inventory.. if you haven’t got it then skip over to the store and slap the group joiner on the desk. The gifts are also on the desk, touch the boxes to recieve them once you have joined the subscriber. One is a unisex version of the hair I am wearing called Minato and the female version called Sakura. The only real difference between the two is that Sakura has the little colour change hairclip on the side! The Unisex version does not have this so that makes it suitable for guys.. it is a fatpack of colours so you will have lots of choice!

Edited to Add.. I’ve been informed it is an older gift that was resent and Love featured it in her mahoosive free hair post here!

My Jacket is a L$10 offer from SUSU that is available at the True Fashion Times event. There is a male L$10 offer there too so grab your guy friends and take them with you!

If you like holiday hunts you’ll be in seventh heaven this year.

Are you saying “bah humbug!” to the holidays? There are plenty of other themes to go around. Just take a look at the list and see. I’m sure you can find a hunt that makes your toes tingle.

What is this hunting thing you ask? Well you follow clues to find hunt objects in a kind of scavenger hunt… either in just one store or region, or hopping from region to region. Some are easy, others a bit more challenging. But I find most, if not all of them, to be great fun. FabFree and HUNT SL both have pages with tips to help get you started.

Hello everyone, I have a few great freebie finds for you today from an event called True Fashion Times. It runs until 22nd November so you have a few days to get there and check it out.

Today I am showing you two great gifts from Lavarock Creations, one for the ladies and one for the guys! The Lita and Lito jackets are freebies found at their store at this event and I thought I would bring in the lovely Mr0mizu to help show them off.
