To the Lords and Ladies of the Fabulous Realm…

Greetings Oh Fabulous Ones,

druid 1_001

I have just returned from a far away land of Gacha and I come bearing many splendid treasures for you, fine gentle folk.

Okay, imagine I was saying that in a fancy Olde English accent!

The Fantasy Gacha Carnival is open for business and there actually ARE many a splendid offing there. Eighty one designers have come together and set out some very fine fantasy gear for us this November with most offering two or more gachas. The Carnival runs until November 30th so you only have a little time left to get your Medieval on! You can check out the website for a preview here. One of the best things about this Carnival is the ton of men’s items here. Many of the vendors offered both male and female selections or unisex items.

First up is Zenith’s Druid. I love the wooden vines that twist and curl around the upper armor and bracers. Zooming in shows the delicate texture of bark and twigs. The simple linin skirt moves well and sets off the detailed leather works.  I was lucky enough to pull both of the rares on this machine! The branching crown AND the two handed wand. I was thrilled to find a “new to me” hair vendor at the Carnival! I’m wearing Blues’ hair in ‘Grace’
druid coll.

 

Next up is a Ranger outfit from !gO!  I didn’t pull the rare but I was lucky enough to get the jacket and the skirt in the same color and style. !gO!’s booth has both a men’s machine and outfit as well as the girl’s selection. The pose is from Rack Poses and their “priestess” gacha. There are six common poses and one rare couple pose. They all come with the eagle prop! At 50L a play, I grabbed several.  I’m also wearing Little Bones ‘Ranger’ hair in the Landslide pack.

Lastly, I wanted to show you the rest of the Snow Queen set from The Annex.  In addition to the beautiful pearl earrings and chocker, this set has a pair of pearl ‘eye lashes’ and a diadem. There’s also a gorgeous crown but I wasn’t lucky enough to pull it. :(  Maybe next time.  The gown comes in a plethora of colors so I just picked my favorites: Forest, Twilight and Calypso.

I’m also wearing Damselfly’s blowin’ around hair “Gretchen.”  The rare also comes with a set of butterflies woven into the locks. I love the dynamic of the piece. Sure makes for a great picture!

Love Looks Not With The Eyes, But With The Mind

The weekend is winding down for me on this Sunday evening, so I thought I would show you a few amazing things to help ease you into a new week.

If you haven’t been to The Hair Fair yet then now is the time as it is much less crowded now the initial rush is over. Exile put their dollarbie gift out last night, which is a reason in itself to go over as this hair is just breathtaking. They have made a special pack of four colours expecially as their dollarbie for this event and the ends of the hair is a sparkling rainbow ombre! I may never take this hair off as I am so smitten with it! Plus it perfectly matches the adorable Unicorn Clutch that I found when taking a wander over to The Dreamers Factory event. If you join the event group for free, you can claim the little swag bag of gifts nearby which contains this clutch bag and two sweet necklaces that I will show in a future post!

Soooo.. about this gorgeous hair ~ laughs ~ I know, I know.. Im going to be obsessed about it for a while. But as Im back on the subject, here is a picture of the three other colours in the package.

Exile Hair Fair

Ok, I promise I will talk about the other things now! IKON have a new Group Gift for July with the release of their Immortal Eyes range. Their gift is a set from this range in a striking green colour. These eyes are perfect for that otherworldly feel and I can imagine I will be using them a lot in the future! The IKON group is free to join!

As you may have noticed from my other posts, I have quite a love for flowery head bands and crowns, so I was thrilled when I stopped by The Secret Affair event. The theme for this event is Medieval Masquerade with a hint of A Midsummer Nights Dream and there are so many beautiful things to swoon over. The Rose String Crown that I am wearing in the picture is one of the rare prizes from the ieQED gacha but there are several different styles to play for!

Viki gO!es on Vacation

American Tourist

Hello and Happy Weekend everyone! There are so many events going on around the grid, it is literally virtual insanity! I can not even begin to keep up. Still, I did make it out to Chapter 4 recently and picked up this adorable polaroid camera from Tentacio. It is so cute on, and comes in several different versions. I did feel a little like a tourist of some kind (though who takes vacation photos with a polaroid I have no idea!) while wearing it around. LOL During my daily travels around Second Life, I was snapping pictures and instantly developing them inside my awesome camera, and I found out that !gO! has a new group gift out. Score! This all mesh outfit is really cute on. It has a fun casual feel. The weather is getting warmer out there, this is a perfect addition to that summer wardrobe.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

I don’t know about everyone else, but it is definitely Summer where I live, and I am feeling the heat! With all this hot weather and sunshine, I’ve kinda started to live in shorts and sandals. Anything else is just too much! Right now gO! has out an adorable shorts and halter top set that is perfect for Summer. I love the sweet playful pattern. This will definitely be a favorite in my Summer wardrobe! A girl can never have enough shoes, it’s true, and this outfit like any other needed just the right pair of sandals to go with it. Lucky for us, Hankii Pankii recently sent out a cute pair of jellies as a special thanks to their group members.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

A walk in the woods

Snapshot

I’m not sure about everyone else here in the Northern hemisphere, but personally I am hoping and praying for warm weather to finally arrive soon. Early spring is a great time for a walk in the woods, wearing your comfiest clothes. This cozy looking hoodie is this month’s group gift at !go! It looks adorable worn alone, or with a tank layered underneath. (as seen here) Also for a limited time there is another color of this same hoodie on sale for half off in their main store, so it’s a great time to pick up another color of hoodie if you find you like this one.

It Looks Good to be VIP!

It looks good to be VIP! Recently a few of my favorite stores sent out or put out group gifts, and they are beautiful!!! These amazing mesh tops are all three beautifully textured, perfect examples of why being part of a group or joining a subscribo is totally worth it. The first top is from !gO! and I still can’t get over the shading of this crochet top. Available in store to all group members, there is a $50 linden join fee, but this shirt alone is worth that! Not to mention that !gO! always puts out high quality VIP gifts, so again, nominal fee, huge rewards! The top shown in the second picture is a super seductive September VIP gift, a lace cami top from Cheeky. Cheeky puts out a monthly VIP Gift, and gives purchase rewards to all VIP customers when buying items in store! There is a $50 linden join fee for Cheeky also, but I could say this a million times, the fee is entirely worth it! Who doesn’t love monthly gifts?!? The third picture shows the Subscribo gift from RUBY, and guess what, Subscribo Gift means no fees! This top is totally free, just gotta click the Subscribo! The textures on this top are so rich, and I love the way the center part reminds me of the doodles I used to draw on my notebooks in school!

So, I had the idea to do this crazy boho chic outfit today, and I thought LEA Machinima Open Studio Project (MOSP) would be the perfect place to shoot it. The entire sim is filled with nothing buy paddy and open sky. Definitely worth a visit. The top and bottom I’m wearing are both group gifts from !gO! and Una, This hair which I adore is group gift from Eaters Coma (comes with the huge fatpack), previously Sixty Nine for old-times, and the hat can be gotten from *LpD* store at Avenue (be sure to join the Avenue Reader’s group to get the gift)

Happy Easter!

Snapshot_006J StyleZ has designed a very cute mesh spring dress called Niamh for  the Spring Is Near Acid Lily Simwide Hunt.  The adorable daffodil printed dress is just what I needed for this weekend and you can find it hidden in a lady bug hunt icon at Acid Lily  (5L).

I found the Easter Basket shown on marketplace in the !gO! store for just 1L.  I may have to take some little chickies out and make room for some Cadbury’s Easter Cream Eggs (mmm those are my favourite Easter candy craving!), but it is pretty cute with the dress!  I’m curious now…  What’s your “Easter Candy Poison”?

The skin I am in today is a free gift from HUIT in celebration of the opening of there new R2 location.  It comes with cleavage and no cleavage option and there is no need to join a group – just go visit the shop and pick it up!

Happy Easter to all of our Fabulous Readers, however you decide to celebrate this sweet spring long weekend!

Afternoon Ice Skating

skating8f

My little corner of Second Life is starting to warm up (a little), but it’s still cold enough for an afternoon of ice skating. I’m such a klutz and tend to spend more time on my fanny than I do upright. But Gavin played hockey in high school and still gets around pretty well on his old skates. Duncan, my Great Dane, is such a protector… he’s not sure yet how he feels about Gavin, but would rather not get his paws all cold and wet, so he keeps watch from the sidelines. Good thing… I’d probably fall on him anyway! :oops:

Today I’m wearing a super-cozy, mesh sweater dress, the Cold Winter Nights Hunt prize from !gO! (there is also a male version in the box). All prizes in this hunt are 10L, and will be available until February 15th. Gavin’s sweater is the Winter Wonderland Hunt gift from Rispetto Designs. WWL Hunt gifts are free (0L) and are available until February 15th. Completing the look, Gavin added a pair of mesh jeans, also from Rispetto Designs, which you can still find under the Christmas tree for a few more days (hurry!). His texture-change scarf is a free gift from ::[MrPoet]::. And those hockey skates? The CWNH prize from [ Organica ]. I picked up this cute pose at the Valentine’s Sale at Glitterati Poses; all couples and friend poses are on sale until February 21st.

skating11ff

The skin I’m in today is the Femboy Hunt gift from .::WoW Skins::. This is a female skin that comes with and without cleavage. Prizes in the FBH are 2L, but you’ll need to hurry because the hunt ends today! I picked up my cute hair for 70% off at the [Elikatira] Retirement Sale. EVERYTHING in the store is on sale until February 23rd, and then everything will be retired. So don’t miss this fabulous sale! Oh, and my earrings, which you can barely see, are a dollarbie from Addiction Jewelry.  You’ll find them in a gift box on the table when you walk in.

Gavin’s skin is the Xmas Gift in the male group gift box from -Belleza- (250L to join); it comes in several different shades. The pose he’s in behind me is from a pack from last week’s Fifty Linden Friday by Glitterati Poses. It was still available at the 50L price as of this afternoon, but it won’t be there tomorrow, I’m sure!

I’d better go save him now… I think Duncan is giving him the evil eye!
