We’ll Be Raising Our Hands, Shining Up To The Sky

Its still the music festival time of year over here in the UK, so here I am out camping with Mr0mizu, getting in the mood for the weekend ahead! Right now we are only in our back garden.. and I much prefer that to a crowded campsite!

Mr0mizu is looking rather fine in his festival wear thanks to some great items from The Blues Hunt. His sweater is the hunt prize from Razor and he has his casual sandals for his SLink Feet courtesy of The Body Factory! He doesn’t usually like accessorizing but he finally found a necklace he liked thanks to the Ammunition Necklace by AITUI! He’s even grown a huge beard for the event! Im going to have to find some flowers to decorate that with later ~laughs~

He doesn’t look too amused with me trying for a piggy back huh! You can find this freebie pose called King and Queen at Diesel Works! It comes with a crown to wear too, but I didnt want to push my luck too far ~giggles~

I love my Heart Shaped glasses and if you love them too, you can find them as a freebie from Snatch at the District 5 event that began a few days ago. You can also pick up the free gift of a fatpack of Athytia Dresses by Somnia at the same event! The Cecily Necklace is just adorable and is by C’est La Vie as their new free group gift. It comes in a pack of several colours so you can match it to almost everything! Don’t you just love my rainbow boots! They are perfect festival wear and whats great is they are free on the marketplace as a wearable demo by ALB Dream Fashion!

How about this hair though huh? Its so amazing that I had to show you it!  It is made by Olive and you can get it from the Olive You Fundraiser which is an event to help the owner of Olive raise funds to save her home! I always love how SL really shows its community spirit when things like this happen. There are some amazing stores taking part, so be sure to come and take a peek. You’ll be buying some great things and helping a good cause in the process.

And lastly my skin is the Delphine Bare skin in tone 3 by Lumae and is their item for Lazy Sunday.. now I know Sunday was yesterday but the skin is still out so rush over to get it as quick as you can! It is available in 8 tones for a bargain L$75 each! He had to get in on that picture.. he’s just so proud of his beard! And I see some daisies over there with his name on them….

Your Friday Hunt Report

HUNT SL Anarchy HuntMid August… does this count as the “dog days of summer?” Be that as it may, the middle of the month means another big turnover of hunts. There are five new hunts that just started today, as well as a bunch that are ending. I’ve separated out the hunts calling it a wrap so that you can make a final run at them. You’ll find them at the end of the list today.

If you’d like to get involved with this fabulous game of hunting, there is no better time. There is a plethora of hunts currently underway. If you need a bit of help to get started FabFree and HUNT SL both have pages to help you with that. Yup, all this hunt stuff is either free or very nearly so. I don’t know about you, but my wardrobe and home have never looked better.

Let’s do this! Just poke the hunt names to get more information on each one.

See you out on the hunt!

A Guest Blog by WCH Riler – Basic Black? Not A Chance, This Is Exceptional Black! Originally blogged [HERE]

I have been quite busy lately, trying to make up for the time I was away. You know though, it’s only fair if I work hard, I should get to play just as hard. So, tonight I am going out to catch a blues band at my favorite bar. A new guys’ hunt just opened which is quite special, and I wanted to take a moment to tell you about it. The Blues is a gridwide hunt brought to us by the people at Depraved Nation. It is not a free hunt (each prize costs 5L), but there are some very nice gifts involved in it and it is definitely worth a look. A night out on the town is the perfect occasion to show off this hunt prize offered by NERD MONKEY. It consists of The Black Classic Shirt, The Gray Classic Tie and The Gray Classic Vest. All three pieces are mesh and completely separate. The texturing and the stitching on the vest alone blew me away. For 5L not only do you get this nice outfit put together, but you can also combine it with other pieces in your wardrobe to make it an even more exceptional value. The Blues hunt is on until August 31st, check it out.—–WHC Riler

Today’s Top 10 Hunts

HUNT SL Fairy Tale HuntGood morning fabulous fans! Here’s a listing of what’s hot in the hunt world today: Tuesday, August 12.

There are lots of cool hunts going on. The Fairy Tale Hunt has jumped to the top of the list this week, with Dirty Diva holding the second spot, and the female path for Battle of the Sexes still making a strong showing. My partner and I have been planning on doing Kagami, but it’s rumored to be so popular that it’s hard to get in. I’m sure you can find a hunt that will give you hours of enjoyment.

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.

See you out on the hunt!

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 …..

Hipster is, as Hipster does….whatever that means

Good evening Fabulouses!! Or morning, depending on where in the world you are :) Well, it is evening for me, and as I sit in my sweltering living room, I thought I would try to take my mind off of how much like a sauna my house will be with the heat wave my area is going to experience this week, by showing you my Hipster look.

CoffeeHouseHipster1

My look was completely inspired by the newest free, Reign group gift. The group was recently free to join for a short while, with the temptation of a free pair of shoes if they hit a certain number before closing up free entry. As a little thank you to all the new people who joined, as well to the current members who pushed, pulled and dragged everyone they knew to join, KenadeeCole, one of the owner’s/creator’s for Reign, sent out this cute little texture change Hello Hipster Necklace. You get a hud with 4 different colours to change the ‘Hello’ to, and I really like the simplicity of the design. If you hurry, and aren’t already in the group, I just checked, and, as of 10PM SLT (Monday), it’s still free to join.

CoffeeHouseHipster2

My next choice had to be glasses. No self-respecting hipster would be caught without their glasses on. While I have a few pairs in my inventory from days past when I always had glasses on, I wanted something new, and a little less sleek/modern. My favourite place to search, the Marketplace, did not let me down! The Mad Nerd Glasses, by Mad Mesh, were the first pair to pop up in my search, and lucky me, they were only L$9! Score! You get several different colours in both plain, and checkered versions, and even better, they are totally mod, so you can make them any colour you need.

Sticking with my accessories, I picked up these super adorable Hot and Cold Marshmallow earrings by Pink Acid at the current Candy Shop round, and for only L$50. Seriously, the expressions on their faces, so cute, though I do feel a little bad for the hot marshmallow, he doesn’t look like he is enjoying the heat at all. Kinda like me…LOL.

CoffeeHouseHipster3

I think, my favourite finds of my whole outfit though, are the * [BE]lieve – Black Urban Hipsta cat blazer with T-shirt, and * [BE]lieve – Hipster Studded Triangles Shorts. Both of these were finds on the Marketplace, with the Blazer- T-shirt combo setting me back a total of L$20, and the shorts were only L$10. How could I say no to either, especially when there is a cat print involved :P  Both pieces are mesh, coming in standard sizes, though I will warn you that I had to go up a size in the shorts, wearing a L instead of my usual M, but the L fits perfectly, and the M Blazer sits over the shorts without any part breaking through. I don’t know if the creator made these 2 to go together, but they work so well together, that it sure feels like it was meant to be. Love when that happens! Make sure you take a peek at all the other items from * [BE]lieve, as all their stuff is well priced, nothing over L$50, and great looking.

So, how do I look? Am I hipster enough? I am the type of person that I just wear what I like, not really paying attention to whether I fit into a certain group or not, and it works for me. Truthfully though, this look of mine is going to be saved and worn over and over, that is the sign of a great outfit. I hope you all agree :)

Until next time, TTFN *waves*

*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!!
