Can a Rock Star wear a cat print?

Happy Friday everyone!! How has your week been? Mine, hot……I was melting all week, as I do not have air conditioning in my house, but when you live in an area where 3/4 of the year is winter…it’s almost silly to have one. LOL. Anyways, enough about that, I have a few fun hunt gifts to show you :)

rockstar1

With it being the start of the month, there are loads of new hunts starting up, 2 of which, are the FemBoy Hunt, and the Cupcakes Anonymous Hunt. Insanya is participating in both of these hunts, and it just so happens that the 2 hunt items go together perfectly! First up is the :::insanya::: Kitten Shirt for the Cupcakes Anonymous Hunt. This is not a free hunt, each prize is set at L$5, but, when you find the cupcake for this shirt in the store, you will see that it is worth it. This super cute, kitty print, mesh shirt comes in standard sizes, and also comes with a texture change HUD with 10 different colours to choose from. The cat print was a win for me right off the bat, but the texture change HUD just made it even better :) The other hunt gift, from the FemBoy hunt, are the :::insanya::: Liquid Latex Capris – Leo – FemBoy Edition. Now, do not assume that this is a hunt just for the boys, as you can see, these capris are totally female friendly, they are system layer pants, and  even come with appliers for Physique, Wowmeh, Phatazz, and Booty. I think they make a great pair of leggings in this outfit. This is also not a free hunt, but each prize is only L$2.

rockstar2

Isn’t it awesome how well the 2 prizes work together, with a few well chosen, fun extras I had in my inventory, I kinda feel like the lead singer for an 80’s punk/pop rock band. Hmm..maybe I need to start up a band in SL…..I just need to come up with a great name, preferably with ‘Cats’ or ‘Kitty’ worked in there. Any suggestions? LOL

Well, until next time…Rock ON!!!

Do You Want To Go To Hawaii? – Aloha Fair pt 1

The Aloha Fair has started and is a celebration of all that is summer and sunshine! It runs until August 11th so there is plenty of time to come and soak up the tropical atmosphere and snap up some great bargains and exclusive items!

You can also find a whole host of freebies and dollarbies as well as two gacha areas and bazaar areas where there are huge discounts on amazing items! In the next series of posts from myself, I will be showing you the freebies and dollarbies you can find at the event. To find these, you are looking for a brightly coloured surfboard that will be either inside or propped outside each store.

I have included LM’s to each individual booth, but it is landing point locked at the event so you will land at the main landing point. Hopefully each LM below will show a red beacon on your map so you can find the item by following that!

Aloha

For a tropical splash of colour, you can’t go wrong with the Niokolo Maxi Dress by ArisAris and I can carry all the things I need for my day on the beach with the Aloha Tote Bag by DEW. Eye protection from the summer sun is also a must so the Black Shore Glasses by HollyHood are stylish and perfect for the job! My black slingbacks by Snob are probably not the best things to walk in the sand with but for wandering along the promenade they are great!

Aloha

The gorgeous Alana skin is by Poudre and comes in several different tones with two cleavage options. I will be showing more of these tones during the next few posts! I love wearing flowers in my hair, so the beautiful Hibiscus hair accessory by Delirium Style adds the perfect finishing touch!

I Am Doll Parts

I used to be a collector of BJD’s or Ball Jointed Dolls, so being able to be one in SL has always thrilled me ever since COCO Designs created the BJD Avatar in SL a little while ago. So you can imagine my excitement when I recieved word that they had released a free fatpack of doll heads to wear with the doll body! I ran over as fast as my little ball jointed legs could carry me so I could show them to you!

I Fake It So Real I Am Beyond Fake

In these two pictures I am wearing the Anna head. Above is how the whole doll looks, complete with the body that you can buy seperately. The Red Slip Dress worn in the picture is also by COCO Designs and is another freebie that they have made for the Doll Avatar!

Don’t you just adore this cute little kitty? He is made by The Mint Condition and if you want one of your very own, then be sure to visit Gacha Mania to play their gacha machine! Talking of gachas, my Cookie Necklace is by Spellbound and can be found in one of their in store gacha machines!

Here is a complete run down of the Doll Heads you can find in the fatpack from COCO Designs!

And while you are there, don’t forget to pick up the other piece of clothing that is set as a Group Gift which is free Kimono for your Ball Jointed Doll!

I adore how it comes with its own hands and feet with the Geta already attached, which makes it so easy to turn into a little Geisha Doll. The head I am wearing in this picture is also from the free box of doll heads and is called Kyoko!

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.

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.

The quest fur cover, for furries and humans alike! (Part 2!)_001

#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.

The quest fur cover, for furries and humans alike! (Part 2!)_003

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.

Finally, Voidvoidvoid, shop #10, has the absolutely adorable dino hoodie hood as their hunt gift! This one is completely modify, so it will fit any avatar, and the package includes a download for a photoshop file, so you can customize the texture on your hood!

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 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!
