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.

Today’s Top 10 Hunts

HUNT SL Anarchy HuntGood morning fabulous fans! Here’s a listing of what’s hot in the hunt world today: Tuesday, August 26.

The Splash of Color Hunt started this past week and rocketed right to the number one spot for a while (now at number 2). I did the Fairy Tale Hunt and Anarchy Hunt along with my partner and aside for the usually little glitches (stores out of business and such) I can personally vouch for the fact that these are well-run hunts. I’m sure you can find a hunt to suit your fancy. Enjoy!

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!

Your Friday Hunt Report

HUNT SL splash of color huntI live in central California, so when mother nature turns up the late summer heat, I crank up the air conditioning and stay indoors. Second Life is always so nice and cool, so my partner and I do a good bit of hunting. Not only do we beat the heat, but we end up with all kinds of cool stuff.

There is lots to do! So many hunts… There are some pretty good hunts going on right now, but a lot of them are going to reach their expiration dates in about a week. Of course we’re going to be seeing a whole new crop of hunts on September 1st.

New to the hunting game? FabFree and HUNT SL have pages with tips and tricks. The short version is this: follow the clues, find the hunt object, touch it or buy it (most are free or very nearly free) and then push off to the next stop on the hunt. Not only is hunting a lot of fun, it’s also a great way to find some new nooks and crannies in Second Life that you’ve never visited before.

See you out on the hunt!

Today’s Top 10 Hunts

HUNT SL Dirty Diva HuntGood morning fabulous fans! Here’s a listing of what’s hot in the hunt world today: Tuesday, August 19.

We’re into the last weeks of summer and if you’re following all the hunts that are in the planning stages then it seems like Halloween is just around the corner. Time flies when you’re having fun hunting!

The Dirty Diva hunt is still making a strong showing and has pushed its way into the number one spot. Enmeshed Into Fall Hunt has had some problems but is still getting a lot of interest. I guess people REALLY love their mesh, LOL. There are lots of fun hunts in the rest of the pack as well, with many more hunts going on too… about 50 hunts active at the moment.

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!

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!

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.

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.

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].

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.

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.
