Your Friday Hunt Report

HUNT SL Boo Bunny HuntJust one week left until Halloween! If you haven’t taken advantage of one of the dozens of Halloween hunts, then now it the time because the clock is ticking. There are some fabulous and scary gifts out there lying around, just waiting to be picked up… Halloween costumes, spooky graveyards, gnarly trees, and more! Bring a couple of friends because it is terrifying out there.

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.

Ready to get going?  Just poke the names for more information on each one.

See you out on the hunt!

Today’s Top 10 Hunts

HUNT SL Femdom Hunt VGood morning fabulous fans! Here’s a listing of what’s hot in the hunt world today: Tuesday, October 21.

The fifth edition of the Femdom Hunt is leading the pack this week. This is a very popular and well run hunt, as is the eighth edition of Hunt for Your Inner Slut, which is holding down the number 2 spot. It seems like it’s a good week for sexy hunts. I’m sure you’ll have fun checking them out.

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 and this ranking can (and probably will) change in a few hours.

See you out on the hunt!

Bettie’s got your cupcake!

This weekend seems to be all about the quickie posts for me, because here is another. Well, it’s only a quickie because you only have 2 days left to grab all the goodies from our very own FabFree Birthday Cupcake hunt, and I am showing you a few things you may be missing out on if you haven’t already finished this super easy hunt.

pinup1

The 2 gifts I am showing you are from 1-800-Bettie’s, and Asteria Creations. First up is this lovely vintage-feel gown from 1-800-Bettie’s.  The *1-800-B*Fishtail Gown in Plain Pink is one for all you non-mesh lovers! It is all system layers, with one of the best fitting system layer skirts I have worn in a long time! It also comes with a Tango applier for the top. I just love the way the ruffles on the bottom of the dress sweep the ground, and you wanna know a secret? I’m not wearing any shoes with this dress, and no-one would ever know. As long as you all don’t tell, of course :)

pinup2

The second gift I have on is from Asteria Creations, and is a lovely, fresh-faced skin with pale pink lips and eyeshadow, with a hint of yellow on the upper eyelids. The *Asteria Creations – Myia Skin – Sahpe PALE, comes with its own shape, which I thought would be fun to show you beside a shot with my own shape. I am on the left, and the shape included is on the right, and I will admit, I am a touch self-conscious about how far my ears stick out with a slick, pulled back hairstyle, and the other shape really makes it obvious! LOL. The eyebrows on this skin are a touch paler than what I am showing, as I just had to try out the brow out makeup, I showed you before HERE, again.

So, I will tell you, to get the skin gift, you are going to have to head over to the Asteria Creations main store, which is located HERE, as there was a tiny snafu in placement :) Don’t worry though, I think it is worth the trip, and it was still pretty easy to find :) The 1-800-Bettie’s gift though, is located at the FabFree HQ, along with so many other goodies. Just in case you haven’t seen it yet, here is the link to the Official Hunt Page, with preview pics of all the prizes, as well as links to prizes that we blogger’s have shown off. You only have until the 16th to get these gifts, so you better get over there right now! Seriously, right this second, well, ok, maybe finish reading my post, and then fly as fast as you can. LOL.

OK lovlies, that is all I have for the moment, so I am going to take my leave. Until next time, TTFN! *waves*

Delicately Delphine

I hope you have all had or are having a great weekend everyone! Its been busy busy in the Omizu household so I’ve been slacking a little with blogging! Yikes! But Im back now to show you some great new gifts and freebies!

Lumae have released their September gifts and if you love their skins or you are looking to experiment with new ones, this is going to be a treat for you. Their newest skin Delphine was released about 2 weeks ago and their new gifts is a version of this really pretty skin with a really beautiful deep purple eyeshadow. Lumiya Rae, the owner of Lumae, has always been super generous with her gifts at her stores and this time is no exception. Her gift is the skin in all 8 tones, but the tones are seperated in to three parts.. Tones 2, 4, 6 and 8 are in the free group gift for her store group, Tones 1 and 5 are the free group gift for the SL Free’s and Offers group. Both of these are found at the Lumae mainstore .. Lastly the Tones 3 and 7 are their new free gift at the FabFree HQ! I think this is a really fun idea and there is a tone to suit everyone.. be sure you collect them all!

The Skins each come with a light brow and a dark brow options and is the medium cleavage versions of the skins. There is a Loud Mouth applier for each tone but there are no other appliers included, however you can buy these seperately at a very reasonable price at the mainstore. Below you can see all the tones together!

You might notice my avatar shape looks a little different in these pictures, this is because I am wearing the Lena Perky Mesh Body by Kitties Lair. This is a new Mesh Body to me. I have been tempted by the other bodies available but as I prefer a more curvy, fuller shape, they have yet to strike a chord with me even when making adjustments to my shape to try to make them more curvy. The Lena Mesh Body comes in two options.. Perky and Lush. Below you can see the difference between the two. Bear in mind they are fitted mesh and will adapt to your own shape. I already have quite a curvy system shape so this is accentuated in the mesh body. Out of the two, my preference for general wear will be the Perky one but you can get demos so you can trial them with your own shape to see which you prefer!


In the picture above, on the Left is my shape worn with the Lena Perky Mesh Body and on the right is my shape worn with the Lena Lush Mesh Body.


On this picture above, I am wearing the Delphine Shape that comes with the Lumae gifts. This is a much more slender shape so you can see the difference that it makes on the two mesh bodies. The Lena bodies are compatible with SLink hands and feet and they also work with the Omega Appliers system for both skins and clothing. The Lena Mesh Bodies are NOT free but I thought they were worth covering as mesh bodies seem to be quite the hot topic at the moment and I thought someone might be interested!

The lingerie I am wearing in the pictures above is also by Lumae and is called Delicate. It is available in 3 tones for L$75 per tone and comes with system layers that you can wear on the regular Second Life avatar as well as a HUD that offers Omega, SLink, WowMeh, Phat Azz, Lola, Lush and Puffy appliers! So pretty much everyone is covered! Also it comes with a Petites version!

The Petite skin I am wearing is called Una and is also by Lumae. You can find it in all eight tones at the Genre event which is especially for Petites this month! Nothing is over L$100 so if you love Petites be sure to pay the event a visit before it closes very soon! A quick word of caution though, you will need to have a modifyable version of Yabusaka’s Petite Mesh Avatar to be able to wear these skins as they use the Omega Appliers System. If you have the Fallen Gods or Al Vulo Petite Avatar, you will not be able to use these as you are unable to change anything about the avatars.

Guest Blog By Geoffrey Edwardstone – Second Life Frees & Offers Deals

Guest Blog By Geoffrey Edwardstone – Second Life Frees & Offers Deals, Originally blogged [HERE]

The Second Life Frees & Offers group (SLF&O) recently sent out a notecard listing all the deals available at participating stores right now, and there are some great free items for men available on the list this time around.   The SLF&O group is free to join and you need to be wearing that group tag to claim your gift at each of the stores.  In addition to the free-to-members gifts, the group gets regular notices from participating merchants about other offers in their shops.  The free gifts put me in an outdoor mood, so I went over to the It All Starts with a Smile sim to take these pictures for you.

This first outfit includes the free SLF&O group mesh racer tank top by [AP.PAREL], perfect for a hot summer day or any day at the beach.  I’m wearing it with my tried and true, available-to-everyone musician male jeans from my inventory library.  My shoes are Duh!’s canvas loafers in tan, just $25L from Duh!.  These nicely detailed loafers are available in several colors, each for the same low bargain price.  The pose in this picture is one of the “Dangerous” pose set, which is the free SLF&O gift at  ~Just Posing~.  There’s also a more female-looking set of poses included in the gift.

[AP.Parel]SL F+O_001

My second outfit shows a versatile mesh “Fred” Top in red, the SLF&O free gift at Glam Dreams.  This shirt is something you can use year-round, so it’s a must-have in your wardrobe.  The pose in this picture is one of a free SLF&O set you can find at [Kikay].

Gizza June GG_003

Now in case you think I don’t look quite like myself in these pictures, you’re right.  Curves Shapes and Skins is offering combinations that include a shape and a skin, one for men and one for women in it’s current SLF&O gift package, and I’m showing you the “Boys” gift.  The hair I’m wearing is Mario in black, which I’ve blogged before but which is still available for free to SLF&O group members at Pocket Mirrors.  And my eyes are Mayfly’s Deep Honey Hazel Eyes, available for free at Fabfree Station.

Gizza June GG_004

So get out there and pick up all these great gifts while they’re available, and don’t forget to look around the shops and give these generous merchants a bit of business too.

Take a walk on the Wild Side with Me

I felt a little edgy today and decided to show something different from my usual style. I joined ::JStyle:: (free to join) a long time ago and have so many group gifts that I’m not sure when I’ll wear them all. But I sure am going to try! The clothing from the store tends to be more modern, maybe even described as “street style”.

This tight fitting body-hugging bodysuit is a great example of the varied outfits from ::JStyle::. I love the way this Chocolate Bodysuit hugs my curves. It is a very recent free group gift so hurry over, join the group, and grab it. This gift comes as an ensemble complete with the bodysuit, jewelry,skin, shape, nails, appliers, and boots. Imagine all of this for FREE! The gift includes a collar but I changed the look up with a very nice necklace from When I Dreamed. It’s the Native Long Necklace I bought for $100L. My lip color was a freebie find from the Skin Fair 2014; the shade is called Deadly. I thought it complemented the bodysuit. I chose the Amazonia skin from another recent ::JStyle:: group gift (free) and wanted a smaller shape so I put on an old fallback from The Free Dove – Joella Shape w/ small frame/larger breasts. It was also free. The most expensive item I am wearing is my hair from Truth – Harriet ($250).

One of the things I love best about Second Life is that you can really doll up your avatar for practically no cost. I got this great emoter from Emmepose. Visit the store to pick up a few freebies found on the desk and in the black boxes to the left side.

Say Hello To My Little Friend

Thank goodness its Friday! The weekend has landed and I’m here with my new friend Albert that I met while taking the pictures, to show some more amazing freebie finds for you to enjoy!

First, this amazing asymmetrical dress that is the new group gift by BLOKC! I love the shape of this dress and the bright pink and purple tones with the slight sparkly fabric pleases me so much. Pink and sparkle always makes me very happy! The group is free to join which also makes me very happy!

With the SLink Mesh Feet pretty much becoming the new normal in SL, finding low cost shoes to fit them can be quite a task. Thankfully the Demi-Heels for SLink High Feet by M-Nus are the perfect basic pair of heels that will go with almost everything so are a must have in your wardrobe, so be sure to get them while you can! These are a group gift for the SL Frees & Offers group so you will need to join that group for free and wear their tag to claim!

While you still have your SLF&O tag above your head, stop off at Lumae to get their new freebie! They are very generous with their gifts and this one is no exception! Their gift is an exclusive make up for their new skin Nima, which comes in four sample tones all with mid cleavage, Loud Mouth appliers and there is also a modifyable shape (though I am wearing my own in the pictures.. but the shape included is really cute!)

Untitled

For those curious as to what a Loud Mouth is (besides me when I’ve had a few cocktails ~laughs~), it is a mesh mouth that comes with optional mesh teeth like the ones I am wearing here that are gappy. You can also see the make up better on this skin as well as what the Loud Mouth appliers included with the skin look like. You will need to purchase the Loud Mouth mesh lips seperately to use the appliers included. I’ve used the same windlight setting for this portrait, which is [TOR] MIDDAY – Anime Ciel. I assure you that no editing has happened with this picture, only cropping in Photoshop. The mesh join with the mouth really is very unnoticable with this skin!

Below is what each tone looks like in a less stark windlight setting and with my normal mouth. For this I have used the windlight setting called Torie Senne WL Settings which is one of the many built in presets in the Firestorm Viewer. This windlight setting gives a truer view to how the skins look without shadows and bright light and is the general setting I use for every day SL when Im not trying to be all arty.

One tool I found invaluable today because my eyes really didnt want to play ball at looking at the camera, was the free AnyPose Expressions HUD I found on the Markeplace by Phate Shepherd Creations.

As you can see it has buttons for eye direction, hand gestures for normal SL hands and facial expressions! This is perfect for when your eyes want to do anything but look at the camera! Love originally blogged the HUD here and she is right about it being invaluable for anyone who models or takes pictures in SL!

Show Your Pride!

Dagnabmit I almost missed LGBT Pride Month! I guess it’s better late than never. To educate those of you who are not aware Gay pride or LGBT pride is the positive stance against discrimination and violence toward lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people to promote their self-affirmation, dignity, equality rights, increase their visibility as a social group, build community, and celebrate sexual diversity and gender variance. (Cited from Wikipedia)

I have many dear friends who are Gay or Lesbian and I would be remiss if I didn’t show my support for them. There are a large number of groups for LGBT people in SL.

I was reminded of this celebrations by Laney of Laney’s Boutique when she put out a free pair of Pride unisex jeans. Then I decided to shop for a flag and found the perfect one for only $50L at Flag Factory. The flags are very well made with true-to-life textures. This store has so many flags I think you can find any flag you would like to own. The free Blatex top from Me’LanGe was added to complete my outfit since I couldn’t find a top that had all the right colors. Black goes with everything, right?
