I Hear Her Heart Beating Loud As Thunder

The Fantasy Gacha Carnival started about a week ago and it runs until 8th September. If you love Pirates, Vikings and the East then you will be all over this Gacha extravaganza just like I have been. You can see more of the items by visiting Love’s Mermaid post here and also Pru’s Pirate Adventure here! I am here today to show you some of the Eastern themed items you can win from a few of the Gachas there!

There really are some breathtaking designs on offer at this round of the The Fantasy Gacha Carnival and one of my favourite items as been the Sakura Shibari Dress by DeviousMind that comes with a set of Neo Geisha accessories that you can play for in a seperate Gacha. This dress is just so super sexy! It is fitted mesh so will need very minimal adjustment. I added the Sadhana Fans and Upper Arm bracelets that are by Aisling and the look is complete!

I really fell in love with the shape of the Princess of the East Dress by Murdock and I love the one sleeve detailing that makes it quite unusual. It comes with a floral attachment that covers the sleeve, but I decided to go without. I was very lucky to win the rare versions of both the Somilia Head Jewel by Pekka and the Lian Collar by A Masters Eye, especially as I really really wanted both! You will be seeing me wear the Head Jewel quite often in other posts to come I am sure! The detailing on both items is exquisite and whats great is they both have colour changing HUDs! Hooray! The Sadhana Bracers are another of the prizes you can find in the Aisling Gacha and they really are quite stunning!

Finally my last look shows the Oriental Desire Hair Decor and the purple version of the Oriental Desire dress by KioKio. The Hair Decor is just gorgeous and would be suitable to wear with many different styles and it is also fully colour changable. The Oriental Desire dress is quite cheeky.. and I mean it quite literally! If you are a little shy about showing your bum off then this might not be the dress for you ~laughs~ but it is absolutely gorgeous and a lot of fun to wear!

An Affordable Fantasea

Snapshot_001Good evening to all of you Fabulous Readers!  Looking for  something to spice up your Second Life?  Try some fins!  From time to time I put on a set of fins and make my mer way under the sea to visit Second Life from a different perspective.  Today I am plundering the Blake Diego Sea in my Pirate Mermaid Costume which I put together with some inexpensive The Fantasy Gacha finds and some FREE marketplace finds too.

Pure Poison is participating in The Fantasy Gacha and in this Pirate themed round they are offering the Pirate Mermaid Skeleton Bras in several colours and the Fitted Mesh Mermaid Tail (comes with a swimming AO, and colour change hud to match the different bra colours) at 50L per play.  Don’t worry, the bras are fully adjustable if you are erm.. bigger or smaller. :)  My Commander Pirate Hat is also a Pure Poison Fantasy Gacha find (50L per play).

I found the Monkey Island Insult Cutlass Sword and the Anchor Necklace in the AleyMart marketplace store, both for free! The sword actually works  – too fun.  They have a wide selection of free pirate goodies in that shop – so take a peek if you are into finding some good free pirate loot.
Snapshot_003The Even-Tide Mer Scales can be found on marketplace for 29L per colour or in full fatpack rainbows too.  They just add a little fantasy to your every day skin.  I am wearing a couple more tattoo layers which are also free.  The Mock Cosmetics Party All Night / Indifference Desert Sand Eyeshadow can be found inworld at Shop FreeStyle, and the Left Eye Scar Tattoo can be found on marketplace as a free gift by Le Baguette.

Last but not least… TSUNAMI is the maker of these free Mouth Bubbles!!
Pure Poison @ The Fantasy Gacha

I’m off to find some booty!  Enjoy your evenings :)

Guest Blog by Geoffrey Edwardstone – A Summer Trip Around the World

Guest Blog by Geoffrey Edwardstone – A Summer Trip Around the World, originally blogged [HERE].

The Around the Grid 2 Hunt is now in full swing with a long list of participating merchants.  It’s loosely based on the Jules Verne classic Around the World in 80 Days, and so is lasting a total of 80 days, through September 30.  This hunt is a little unconventional in that you won’t get the LM to the next store on the hunt when you find a prize; you have to use the LMs on the AGH2 website.  The other twist to the ARG hunt is that in addition to a $1L hunt prize, many of the stores also have a $25L Gatcha with hunt-themed gifts in them (the gatcha is optional for the merchants).  I won’t be showing you stuff from the Gatchas, but here’s some pictures of some of the fun $1L prizes you can get from the regular part of the hunt.

Not all the shops are adhering strictly to the historical aspect of  Around the World … but even those who are giving more modern prizes are sticking with the idea of summer travel.  I start out my summer trip in the Skull Pump Ride red and black roadster, the AGH2 prize from NR Designs.  It’s a drivable vehicle that comes equipped with some smoke and fire when you hit the accelerator.  And, man, can this baby fly!

NRDesigns_002Unfortunately, as you can see I ran this hot rod off the road, which means I’m going to have to walk until I find a place to get a tow.  I’m headed off in my mesh plaid cargo shorts and tee which I got as the AGH2 prize at Beautiful & Dangerous.

Beautiful&Dangerous_001

Finding it a little chilly up here in the northern mountains I whip out the mesh hoodie and t-shirt I scored from the AGH2 at Short Circuit.  It captures the around-the-world theme nicely with the world map on the front of the tee.

Short Circuit_001But what do you know?  Just down the road I come upon a cute little taxi, sitting around just waiting for me to drive it.  This Whimsy Taxi is the AGH2 gift from StoraxTree and is also drivable.  Since I’ll be back inside a car again, I can take off the hoodie and try out the Outer Banks shorts and tank top that I got as the AGH2 gift from Euphoria Couture.  Now if I can just manage to keep this taxi from running off the road …..

Moonchild Take My Hand Tonight

Hey everyone! Its me again back with a whole host of goodies for you to feast your eyes upon! I hope you will enjoy what I have found as part of this post today!

You will probably recall the little jewel on my forehead from yesterdays post, well today I am showing you the whole prize of the Cassiopia Hair by by LaNoir Soleil Designs that they have made for The Sinister Goth Hunt! You get two colours of hair to choose from as well as the little head gem that can be worn with other hair styles. The prize is  to collect and you are searching for three little skulls in a group together.

Two new rounds of two of my favourite events started again recently. I already showed you a few things from We Love Roleplay but now The Fantasy Gacha Carnival has opened also! Hooray! Moonchild Staff I am wearing is by Enfant Terrible and I was lucky enough to get the black rare version! This is part of a whole set, some of which I will show in another post very soon! Another item from the festival that I am wearing in this post are the Astrid Bracers (Chrystal) by Pekka. These come in a range of colours but the Chrystal version suits this look perfectly!

The gorgeous Catlike Eyes are a new  gift by Chickadee that you can find on the Marketplace. I’ve always loved cat eyes and I know I am going to be showing these in so many different colours over my future posts as they are just perfect! I always enjoy finding unusual face decoration ~laughs~ and so naturally I just love the Void Face Band by Cubic Cherry Kre-ations that you can find as part of The Blues Hunt at the store. It is mesh and comes with materials enabled. The prizes in this hunt cost L$5 to buy! The hunt is a guys hunt but this prize is unisex!

Hope you will all enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Come closer and see… See into the dark

I thought I would take a different turn for todays picture. Something a little darker. With the new group gift sent through their update group the “My Bodysuit” by Panik seemed perfect timing! Simply join the group for free and check the notices to find it! I was thrilled to see it was available in black and had a white version included also. There are appliers included for Phat Azz, SLink Feet and Lola!

It occured to me while making these pictures that they would also make great leotards for ballet or dance photographs. Of course I wanted to do something with claws and horns ~laughs~

The Luna Facechain is a previous group gift from Panic and is still available at the mainstore. I have previously blogged this but really wanted to show it to you again!

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.

{HUGS}
