Today’s Top 10 Hunts

HUNT SL Music Is My Soul HuntGood morning fabulous fans! Here’s a listing of what’s hot in the hunt world today: Tuesday, April 15. The Easter hunts are in full swing, with lots of sim and store egg hunts, but only a few of them are on the top 10 today.

Four of these hunts are getting a final rush of interest because they end TODAY. If you want to get them before they poof, you should grab your ride (and a friend)… and hit the hunt highway.

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 bust a move and go on them.

See you out on the hunt!

Wow Skins Easter Egg Hunt

.__WoW Skins__. EASTER EGG HUNT!
WoW Skins is holding an Easter Egg Hunt at their mainstore from April 11th – April 22nd and during this fun event, you will find 10 hidden Easter Eggs priced at 15L each, as well as a special GOLDEN EGG with an extra special prize.  I completed this hunt last night, and found that there are a whopping NINE skin sets to be found!  There is also an outfit and a set of lipsticks, but my focus today is these skins!!  I <3 Laura and Cassandra, however I think my favourite has got to be the skin I found in the golden egg – Soraya and amazingly it came with all kinds of goodies like a shape, tons of appliers and freckles layers too!

You’re so vain!

The latest hunt from the sinister goth crew is centered around the sin vanity. I had a great time putting together a few outfits from the pieces that make me look aaaaaabsolutely gorgeous! This hunt has just about everything you could possibly need to put together a whole outfit including a hair, multiple skins, nails, clothing (for him and her!), and accessories!

You're so vain_001

 

Can’t be gorgeous without an amazing skin, right? This skin comes from Pixystix, and is gift #13 in the hunt. My equally gorgeous (and fluffy!) hair is from stop #38, LaNoir Soleil designs. Even my eyes are a gift! These come from VersaEye, stop #44, and the gift package includes mesh eyes in several sizes (even petite!) and system eyes as well!

You're so vain_002

 

Mirror mirror, in my hand, who’s the prettiest in all the land? Why me, of course! My choker, which is colour change via menu, is a gift from Souzou Ein, and is gift #12. Here I’ve paired it with the female gift from #48, No salvation designs, and I’m reflecting on my outer beauty with gift #16, which is from Witches & rats, and includes the pose and the mesh handheld mirror!

You're so vain_003

My second outfit includes the very sexy corset dress from Toxic High, which is gift #8

You're so vain_004

 

Next we have the female gift from #17, Wicked sin creations. There are gifts for both genders in the pack, and the female gift comes with both the leather skirt I’m wearing and the sweater top.

You're so vain_005

 

and finally, last but most certainly not least, here we have gift #29, which is from Cae.b!

Your Friday Hunt Report

HUNT SL The Lost MineHello Fabulistas! It’s Friday once again and that means it’s time to bring you up to date on all the notable hunts out there on the Second Life grid. More Easter themed hunts have bloomed in the last week and all those Easter eggs are lying around out there, just waiting for you to pick up. It proves to be another great week for hunting!

Hunts are a fabulous way to pick up a lot of free (or nearly free) goodies. Store owners hide them for you to find. All you need to do is follow the hints and go find them! FabFree and HUNT SL both have pages with useful tips and tricks. Or… find an experienced friend to show you the ropes. A lot of hunts also have groups to join so you can ask for a little extra help if you get stuck on a clue.

So here are the hunts. Just poke the names for more information on each one.

See you out on the hunt!

Guest Blog by Chiana Oh

A Guest Blog by ChianaO, originally blogged on Cheep & ChiChi!

Spaaace

What’s your favourite thing about space?

Mine is space the futuristic fashion ;)

Spaaace Close-up

The inspiration for this post was seeing May Tolsen’s release for the current round of Kustom9 – ‘Space Friends‘ are so adorable  that I knew I had to have some for my very own. These detailed original meshes are designed to be worn as attachments but I thought it would be fun to rez them for this post; I resized ‘My Home,’ (taking care to make a note of its original dimensions so I could return it back to its intended state once I was done) and I love the results!

Of course, setting up a space-themed post meant I got to shop for lots more cool stuff (not that I ever really need much of an excuse.) I stumbled across Nylon Popstar‘s leotards a little while ago and I knew they would be the perfect starting point for my outfit – there are 9 colours to choose from, each including 2 transparancy options, multiple layers and Phat Azz and Lolas appliers for only L$50 a pack. Hopefully the pictures speak for the amazing quality of the texture itself – it really is that shiny!

A search for space-y items on Marketplace returned these funky boots by Killer Cerise and I just had to have them: the style and texture is just so cute! I resized them slightly and used the alpha for my Slink feet rather than the one included as my legs are pretty small.. but that is the beauty of modifiable items, with just a little tinkering you can have them fit pretty much any shape you choose to be.

I found Olli Braveheart‘s hair store, LCKY, thanks to a fellow blogger and I’m now a big fan: the styles there are really something special and the colours in the packs are some of the loveliest I’ve seen. The one I’m wearing here is an older style which fitted perfectly under Dolce Blackflag‘s fab helmet – there are currently 15 discounted styles out in store sold in colour packs costing only L$50 each.

I’ve layered quite a lot of eye makeup for an ‘out of this world effect’ but the skin itself is a lovely dollarbie from the ever-fabulous MiaSnow (back in-world again, yay!): its lips were already a perfect match for my chosen outfit.

I hope you enjoy this look at least a little as much as I’ve enjoyed creating it!

Until next time,

<3

Art~Paris METRO & Elysium

Good Morning!

I hope you all took advantage of the fabulous offerings, around the grid, for St. Patrick’s Day.  I finished off the day with a visit to the Paris Metro Art Gallery …where Love suggested I would find a wonderful exhibit AND a free outfit from Paris Metro Couture.

The exhibit, featuring the work of Indea Vaher, highlights the life of African American women from a fictional barrier island; off the coast of the USA.  Vaher is an artist in First Life and her work, focusing on African American southern culture, has been internationally recognized.  The Paris METRO Vaher Dress brilliantly reflects the vibrant colors of Indea’s art pieces, and it is FREE to anyone; you will find it in a vendor right at the landing point.  It comes with a matching hat (not worn).

I styled the outfit with a gorgeous Jah versace Headwrap from L&H Couture and a Mesh Necklace 02, from .:ECCO:. FREE (no group join required).

This stunning Africa skin is also a FREE item from Elysium…which also generously comes with hand/feet/phat azz/Lola appliers and shape (worn).  The skin comes with an Africa jewelry set and is part of the MEGAstuff Hunt, brought to you by WOMENstuff and MENstuff…just look for the little red tshirt to receive your FREE items.  I’ve embedded a link for the MEGAstuff Hunt page so you can check out the starting point and any other info you might need to do this Hunt.

Stop by the Indea Vaher Art Exhibit, check out her amazing work and don’t forget your FREE outfit from Paris METRO Couture…then hop on over to Elysium and Ecco for more free goodies!
