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.

Calle’s FabFree Photo Submission – July “O’Canada”

I have to admit, it took me quite awhile to come up with my submission for the Monthly Photo Challenge, especially as I had already done a post to celebrate Canada Day at the beginning of the month, wearing my country’s colours. Oh sure, I could have submitted one of those pictures, but I wanted to do some pictures specifically for the challenge. So here it is.

PhotoChallengeJuly1

So, this oh-so-sexy halter dress was a find on the Marketplace! I typed in ‘red white dress’, LOL, and this was one of the many items that popped up. The Furry Circle Halter Dress is from LA VITA, and is a great buy at only L$1. It is mesh, coming in 5 standard sizes, from XXS-L, and it fits like a dream. There is an in-world store HERE if you like the more hands on approach of shopping, and the Halter Dress is still, only L$1 there as well.

PhotoChallengeJuly2

Sunglasses were a must, in this sunny coastal setting,  and the [ bubble ] Star Me Up White Glasses fit the bill perfectly. These adorable sunglasses are available right now, in a gacha at the Candy Shop event, and are only L$50 a play. Each pair comes with a HUD that allows you change the colour of the lenses, and there is a chance at winning the full fatpack. I’ve included a photo of the board so you can see all the colours you have a chance at winning.

Heart Glasses Gacha AD

PhotoChallengeJuly3

Elephante poses recently released a second July group gift, free for their VIP group members, which is a set of 6 static poses called Ember. There is a L$300 join fee for this group, but if you are a pose junky, like I am, then it is more than worth it As I said, this is the second July group gift released, and the first is still available as well, and you also get a 15% credit with every purchase made in store with your group tag on. If you do not have the group space, don’t fret, there is a subscribo available, which also has a little giftie available for July.  So either way, you win!

OK lovelies, that is it for me, for now…but I have more I want to show you, so, until then, TTFN!!

The quest fur cover, for furries and humans alike! (Part 2!)

RAWR! Hey fabbies! I am back again to show off more fuzzy goodness with the quest fur cover hunt! You can find my first post, which contains the starting location, as well as the first few gifts [HERE]! This hunt is a bit different from what we normally show off and is more geared towards the furry residents in SL! almost all of the gifts in this FREE hunt are compatible with humans and furries alike. So, shall we go on a quest?!

The quest fur cover, for furries and humans alike! (Part 2!)_002
Shop #6, Murder of ravens, has a really interesting “Blue enderbeast” full avatar as their hunt gift. You’ll have to check this one out on your own, but believe me, it’s definitely worth the time to grab! #7, Cubic cherry kre-ations, has a really neat black tail as their gift! The little fin and water drop pattern add great detail to this.

#8, Fujiwara’s world, has this great pair of aquatic-looking ears as their gift. These would be perfect for merfolk, dragons, fish, and many other applications.

Gachapon, shop #9 on the hunt has fun game-themes accessories as their prize! You get a mushroom necklace, chomp bracelet, and the piranha plant tail to top it off.

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.

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 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!

Enjoying the wide open skies!

Hey there fabbies!
Have you ever had one of those weeks where you can’t seem to get anything you WANT to do done because of all of the stuff everyone else wants you to do? That’s been my week! I DID manage, however, to grab Sn@tch‘s newest fishing outfit (in between running all over the place!)

enjoying the wide open skies_001
Wide open skies comes in a variety of whites, silvers, and cremes, and includes 22 pieces, which can be combined in countless ways.

enjoying the wide open skies_002
Day or night, mix or match, Wide open skies is a great and versatile outfit with pieces for every occasion

enjoying the wide open skies_003
If you find yourself with some time on your hands, you should check out the Theme park! Lumae has out this version of their Odette skin with gorgeous pink lips and very soft pink eye shadow in 3 different tones (shown above in the lightest, 2 – cream). On the left you can see the skin as it comes, and on the right, I’ve added the makeup that comes with sn@tch‘s fishing outfit! In addition to all of the clothing pieces, the makeup, earrings, and stockings, this outfit also comes with a TON of appliers, so if you love your mesh bits, this one is definitely for you!

*sings* I Don’t Wanna be a Rock & Roll Zombieeeee!

Why is it that I seem to be drawn to sims where I get attacked? This time, it was Zombies…again! 
[10:31] Zombie bites Calleja Fairey.
Uh Oh….I guess I better get this post finished, just in case I end up turning into a Zombie myself.

Rock&RollZombies1

As you can see, if I do turn into a Zombie right now, I will be a pretty dang cool looking one! This is all thanks to the newest round of The OMG Room, Hair Fair, and Mock Cosmetics.

First up, my rock & roll inspired outfit from the newest round of The OMG Room, that just started. The GAIA ROCK HORROR SHOW COMPLET OUTFIT  is a L$1 gift from Brii Underground, and it has a bunch of stuff included in it, although I am only wearing a few of the pieces. The mesh shorts and mesh jacket/bra top combo come in the standard sizes. You will get a lovely shine with the jacket as it is materials enabled, and check out the great skull texture on the back in the next picture. The other pieces I am wearing that are included with this outfit is the kinda scary tattoo on my belly, as well as the gothic looking skull necklace. What I am not wearing from this is a pair of knee-high black mesh boots, a skull ring, a makeup layer which has eyeshadow and lipstick, and a second tattoo that is on the thighs. That tattoo is not pg, just a warning :P

Rock&RollZombiesCollage

To me, other than the crazy long hair all guys in rock bands in the 80’s had, nothing says rock more to me for hair than a mohawk, and lucky for me, Adoness has put out the asteria in plumify as a L$1 gift for the Hair Fair. This is a partial rigged mesh hairstyle, which is so convenient. You can modify the upper part of the hair to your heart’s content, while the long tail down the back is perfectly rigged to move with your av. It also comes with the bloom shaved hairbase, which I absolutely love The link I’ve provided is a direct TP to their shop at Hair Fair.

My last addition, while maybe not rock so much, is funky enough that it works. It is my lipstick that is a recent group gift from Mock Cosmetics. The [mock] Vitrail Lip Glass – Skittles comes with 3 versions of intensity, I am wearing the 2, which is the darkest. I love that Mock makeup layers are slightly translucent, so they are meant to work with your skins lips, not just be a solid layer over top of them, it means they look slightly different on everyone. The gift is free, but the group does have a L$250 join fee, but with as many gifts as I have received from this group, it is worth it.

Alright, I guess I better go lay down or something, wait and see if I turn. I sure hope not, there are way too many freebies and goodies in SL that I still have to show you all…..and I really don’t want to turn out like this guy.

Rock&RollZombies2

Cross your fingers for me, and until next time, when I hope to still be human, TTFN!!

Guest Blog by Geoffrey Edwardstone – Calling All Roleplayers – The Medieval Fantasy Hunt

A Guest Blog by Geoffrey Edwardstone – Originally blogged [HERE]

I have to admit I’m a sucker for historical stuff in SL and I always try to check out historically themed hunts.  The twelfth edition of the Medieval Fantasy Hunt (MFH XII) is running until the end of this month, and starts at the United Inshcon shop sim.  You can follow the hunt either by getting the LM to the next hunt stop from the previous store’s gift or you can used the list of SLURLs at the MFH XII hunt blog.  The blog also gives the hints for each stop in both English and German (with one stop just in German) which is an advantage when you come upon a stop where the hint giver isn’t set up.  There were 52 stops in the MFH XII hunts when it started but 7 have dropped out, leaving 45 offering either a unisex or both a male and female prize.  But despite the fact there are just 45 stops, many of the prizes are ingeniously hidden at a considerable distance from the landing spot and it will take you a bit of time if you want to do the entire hunt.

First off let me show you the Odhor black mesh warrior outfit gift from PeKaS (MFH XII #15).  It’s mesh and includes alternative tunics with the hood up or with the hood down.  This outfit also includes the shoulder cape and the back-carried shield.  But the sword I’m wielding is the Viking Sword MFH XII gift from Dwar Barbosa Weapons (MFH XII #34).  The gift includes a wearable sheathed version, and is scripted with drawing and sheathing animations as well as the standard fighting animations.7Pekas,DwarBarbosa, Feyline (#15,34,28)_001The rightmost panel in the picture above shows an entire medieval Bryce woodsman outfit, which is the male gift at Feyline Fashions (MFH XII #28).  In addition to all the clothing, the outfit includes the hat, boots, bow and arrow (unscripted), and thigh-carried hunting knife.

Moving on, I’ve changed outfits to show you the Mystical Fantasy male medieval outfit in blue from C&N Designs (MFH XII #27).  The tunic and pants are mesh, and the outfit comes with the belt and boots.  It’s an elegant outfit, so I’m wearing it as I relax on Her Majesty’s Wooden Bench, the gift from An Lema (MFH XII #25).  This gift includes the animated mesh bench with all those pillows, the rug, two plant stands, and a table with decor items on it.

2AnLema:C&N_MFH#25&27_001_001

And finally, this next picture shows you the Korin knight’s outfit, the male MFH XII gift from The Seamstress (MFH XII #37).  It doesn’t include the boots (those are the boots I showed you above), but it is a mighty fine looking outfit with a gold design on the red velvet and a gold neck chain. That pistol is the Pirate Pistol MFH gift from Designs by Isaura (MFH XII #12).  The gift includes a “holstered” version which has the pistol held at the waist with a golden sash.  The pistol does fire, but is not damage-enabled unless you stick your own scripts into it.

6Seamstress&Isauraus(MFH#37&12)_001

There’s a lot more good stuff out there on the Medieval Fantasy Hunt so I hope I’ve shown you enough that you’ll go out and find all that good stuff.
