Be the best Bone Collector you can be, with flowers!

Hello my FabFreebers! So how has your weekend been? Mine, as usually, was pretty uneventuful..although, some would call it ‘Calle being lazy’ :P I like these kinds of days, because it means that I get a chance to do a little more exploring around SL than I normally get to do. One of the places on my list I’ve been wanting to take a look at, is the Isle of Dee, especially once I saw the notices about the Bone Collector Quest.  I’ll tell you a little about the quest, and then, of course, tell you about my outfit :)

BoneCollector1

He was to collect the bones and bring them to the God
so he may breathe life back into them.
But scared, the Bone Collector ran…
The bones and ingredients are scattered all over the Isle.

Are you brave enough to help?

When you first land at the Isle of Dee, to your left is the board where you will get your HUD and a notecard about the quest. Read the notecard, attach the HUD, and your adventure starts! The hunt for the objects will take you all over the Isle, so it really gives you a chance to see this lovely build. I will warn you, while the objects are pretty well in plain sight, the tricky part is deciphering the riddles to find out where each object is. Once you have collected all the items, and found where the Greenman dwells, there is a second riddle where you have to speak the magic word to receive your gifts. This was a fun little quest and probably took me about 2 hours from start to finish, with quite a bit of extra exploring. At the end of it,  you get a little reward of a super fun hat with a replica of the skeleton you were running around collecting pieces of, as well as a shoulder pet of said skeleton, and a home decor wall piece that will give you a yes, no or maybe answer to a question you ask it, again, with the cute little skeleton on it and the Greenman himself.

BoneCollector3

Now, what am I wearing? Well, the theme of the Isle of Dee is supposed to be around 1400’s, medieval England, so I wanted to look the part. While it is not mandatory, it is encouraged. There is a board at the landing site that will send you to a little area with freebies, including a full female and male av, but I just wanted to find myself a nice dress, so to the Marketplace I went. I ended up finding a great freebie, Ulla by Madison’s Creations. I was even able to tint all layers to make the dress more my own, and as you can see, I went with a nice dark green colour, a nod to the Greenman. It has all system layers, a prim skirt, and prim arm pieces, which I was not wearing. It is a nice simple dress that will work for most any kind of period roleplay.

BoneCollector2

Although I promised there would not be a time cruncher again, if you like the poses I am using, which includes the flower in my hand, it is a pack of 5 poses, each with a flower, from Vanity Poses, as a limited time L$1 gift. They recently moved their store and have redecorated, so they thought they would give out a present. Take a look across from them at Bounce This Poses, they have a freebie gift put out for you as well.

OK, Sunday is drawing to a close for me, and I still have things to do to get ready for that pesky thing called RL work…so, for now, I bid you adieu, until next time.

Which Way to the Farmer’s Market?

Happy weekend everyone! It is absolutely gorgeous in my neck of the woods, and I hope you all can say the same thing. The outfit I have for you in this post would be so perfect for the weather I am having, it makes me think of wandering up and down isles of an outdoor farmer’s market in a big city, with the sun shining brightly and the smell of kettle popcorn being popped (or some other delicious smelling food being prepared for the crowds) OK…enough of that kind of talk, my mouth is starting to water, let me tell you about what I am wearing :)

Boho-esque1

I shall start with my bright and cheery skirt! I adore this skirt, and lucky for all of you, you can get it for free and adore it like me! The ::FAC:: Joni Maxi Skirt and Belt is the July group gift from FA Creations. The skirt is mesh, in the standard sizes, and the belt is resizable. I just love the gems hanging off of the belt, what a great little touch. The group is free to join, and they put out a fabulous gift every month, so it is well worth the group spot.

Boho-esqueCollage

Next up is my stylish purse, from Loordes of London. It is one of the current free gifts available at the FabFree Headquarters, and I just love the colour and pattern of the fabric. The Loordes of London-La Boheme Bag-Uniques is my kind of purse, and that’s saying something, as I do not wear many purses here in SL. Don’t wait too long to head over to FabFree HQ if you want this, as the gifts available are always changing, and you just don’t know how long something will be there!

Last of my things to tell you about, but definitely not least, is the :*:CPD:*: Dryad Fetish Necklace. This lovely piece is the free hunt prize from Chaos, Panic, and Disorder! for the Medieval Fantasy Hunt 12, that runs until July 31 and has a theme of Spirits of Nature. There is both a female and male version available, hidden in separate places. You are looking for an ivy wreath with a dragonfly in the center, and to help you out, hints have been provided:
Women: “Spirit of nature? How about the Goddess of Nature?'”
Male: “Cube, cookie, bowl, loaf, packet… they say it’s not good for you.” Make sure you take a good look around, as there are a few other hunts happening at the store, and the other prizes are just as nice :)

Alrighty…that’s it for now, I think I can smell that kettle popcorn in the air, and it is calling me. Until next time, TTFN!!!

Want more candy? Cuz I’ve got more for ya!

Hi there fabbies!

I’ve been having a great time collecting and showing off all of the cotton candy hunt prizes, and I hope the ones I’ve shown off so far have helped you decide on which ones you wanna pick up! I’m here today to show off even more of the hunt prizes that I’ve collected so far, so get ready for more cotton candy sweet cuteness! Remember, as I’ve stated before, this is NOT A FREE HUNT! Each store’s prize costs $L2, however I think the prizes are totally worth it! Parts 1 and 2 of my cotton candy hunt posts can be found [HERE] and [HERE]!

cotton candy hunt part 3_001

first up today we have the lovely floral “Emma” dress, which is the prize from Beautiful dangerous. The dress comes in all 5 standard sizes, and that floral pattern is just perfect for spring!

cotton candy hunt part 3_002

Next we have the gift from Beauty is pain boutique, which is the super cute lemon yellow bra and panty set I’m wearing above. I’m loving the yellow and white stripes, and I think this would be great as a bikini as well as undies!

cotton candy hunt part 3_003

Third we have my ADORABLE mesh cotton candy-clad wellies from Bubble. I am always, 100% of the time, a huge fan of wellies, and these are no exception! These wellies come in 4 rigged sizes and an unrigged version as well, so if the sizes don’t fit, you can customize them to your feets!

cotton candy hunt part 3_004

Finally, Que Bella’s gifts is the super fun and bright 3/4 sleeve dress I’m wearing above! The cute matching stockings are included with this outfit, as well as a cotton candy holdable (not shown), feet appliers, and an extensive set of boobs and booty applier HUDS, which have apps for more mesh parts than you can shake a stick at!

I want candy! Cotton candy hunt part 2!

Hey Fabbies!

the cotton candy hunt has been going on for a few days now, and I’m back to show you even more goodies that you can pick up! There are over 100 stores in this hunt, and I’m hoping to show you guys as many of the prizes as possible. Remember, this is NOT a free hunt, each of these gifts is $L2 to pick up! I’ve shown a few of the prizes already [HERE],

cotton candy hunt part 2_001
My first outfit is made up of the prizes from AlterEgo and Cynful, with jewelry by Pekka, hair bow by Ariskea, and tote by Cute Poison! The shorts, which are from AlterEgo, come in that fantastic neon pink and white combo, and all 5 standard sizes are included. My deep scoop-neck tee is from Cynful. The top comes in 10 sizes, 5 standard and 5 marked “curvy”, and the prize also includes appliers for tangos. The prize from Ariskea not only includes the bow I have on, but also a holdable lollipop!

cotton candy hunt part 2_002
Here’s a closeup of the space alien ring in the jewelry set from Pekka! I love the retro feel of this set and the rainbow finish (of course, I love almost anything rainbow!). The set includes a ring. necklace, and earrings, and all for just $L2!

cotton candy hunt part 2_003

 

Next up is this sexy set from Ines Creations. If you’re looking for something to wear for someone special, then you definitely want this! The “cuttie pink intimate” includes the corset on multiple system layers, the tanga style panties underneath, stockings and appliers for tangos!

cotton candy hunt part 2_004

 

This sweet-clad outfit is the hunt prize from Le Forme. The outfit includes the top and shorts you see above on multiple system clothing layers, as well as appliers for your tangos and various booties. The hair I’m wearing in this post is a fit for a princess event exclusive from Milk hair. This one is not free, but it is on sale, and it won’t be around long, so if you love it as much as I do, then it may be worth it to grab it!

cotton candy hunt part 2_005

 

Finally, my spiky corset is the hunt prize from Leh’s Treasure’s! It comes in 7 different sizes, 5 standard, an XL and a variation on the medium size! It does NOT include the panties I’m wearing, however, they’re part of the hunt prize from Ines Creations. The beautiful skin that I’ve been sporting throughout my post is Smeralda in tan, which the newest female group gift from Wow skins. The group is $L350 to join, but that fee grants you access to years worth of beautiful group gifts for women AND MEN, some including appliers, about a dozen lucky boards, and midnight manias that are changed multiple times per week (sometimes every day!) so, to me, it’s definitely worth it! This pack includes the skin in their “tan” tone, which is a really lovely natural looking sunkissed skin, in both cleavage and non-cleavage versions, as well as appliers for everything you can imagine, including booties, boobies, the baby bump, the WowMeh mesh body, and more!

cotton candy hunt

Hey fabbies! If you haven’t heard yet, the cotton candy hunt starts tomorrow! This hunt is absolutely MASSIVE and features some of the best creators on the grid. Now, each hunt gift costs $L2, so this is NOT a freebie hunt, however, I’ll be doing my best to show you as many gifts as I can over my next few posts, starting today with some of the sponsor stores, so that you’ll know exactly what you want and what you don’t want! For more information on the hunt itself, check out the official website [HERE]

Snapshot_409
Firstly, the gift from Pink acid is the lovely bright pink lippie and pink lashes I have on! The pack includes tattoo layer lipstick, upper and lower lashes, and appliers for the loud mouth. In my mouth is the gift from Amai, which is bacon in special cotton candy colours! The pack includes both the colour I’m wearing and one where the colours are inverted. Like my skin? Better hurry because the skin I have on here is a limited edition item from Pixystix! The Iridia skin comes in the cream tone and features soft pink lips and bold blue eye shadow (I have lippie on here over it!), and the pack includes appliers for EVERYTHING, as well as a ton of different skin options! While my hair is NOT a hunt item, it’s definitely worth grabbing. The Becca hair is an exclusive item from Ploom for this round of FaMESHed. I always like to grab the ploomage pack of ploom’s exclusives because they don’t hang around long, and you never see them again! The colour I have on here is from the new colors pack (formerly pinks/blues/greens/etc, now joined in ONE pack!)

Snapshot_408

NEXT we have the beautiful Lisa skin from Wow skins! (this one IS a hunt gift!) The skin comes in the tan tone with a cleavage and no cleavage option, the pack does NOT include appliers of any kind, however, I found several that were compatible including the ones from the recent easter egg hunt. OVER the skin, I am wearing the absolutely amazing Filigree glaze from newly re-branded Folly (formerly Skinthesis). This item, and the new brand, is getting its debut at the fantasy faire, and I think they’re off to an amazing start!

Snapshot_407

Here I’ve paired the Lisa skin with the gifts from Epic and TartCake. The melty bodysuit from Epic comes with a system layer body suit and appliers for Lolas Tangos, lush breasts, Vstrings breasts, and phat/cute azzes, and the Halfsies socks from TartCake come with sock layer socks as well as appliers for your azz and also for Slink feet.

Snapshot_406

Third, Lolita has this really cute pink High-waisted skirt and white bandeau top as their prize. I’m wearing it here with the Leo stockings, which are a hunt prize from Static. The skirt from lolita comes in all 5 standard mesh sizes, and includes the alpha, the top comes on several system layers, and includes an applier for Lolas Tangos breasts.

Snapshot_405

Next up we have the prize from Modanna. The jeans I have on come in the version you see, as well as a torn version, and the pack includes an applier HUD with appliers for the azzes as well as the ghetto booty and the brazillia booties.

Snapshot_410

Finally, last but most certainly not least, is the bunny girl set from Kathaarian! This really cute and sexy set comes in 2 colours (pink and blue!) and includes a mesh bodysuit with tail on the bum, mesh ears, and a bow tie collar to match! How cute is this! Stay tuned for more, Fabbies, and happy hunting!

Find the umbrellas at the spring market fair!

Hey fabbies! The spring market fair at old europe started recently, and there are a ton of wonderful designers showcasing their spring-themed products at the event. In addition to the abundance of springy goods, most of the designers have out a special free gift hidden somewhere on the sim in a little umbrella! I’ve chosen a few of my favourites to show you, but there are a TON more gifts to be found (NOTE: Hunt related LM’s in this post will lead you to the EVENT, not the designers main store location because the hunt is SIM-WIDE, not grid-wide!).

Find the umbrellas at the spring market fair!_001

Morea style has out this lovely soft cream coloured dress as their gift. I didn’t want to take this off, it’s so floaty and light, and would be perfect for a picnic or a day at the beach!

If you’re looking for accessories instead of clothes, then you should grab the necklace from Goddess fantasies and the eyes from Amacci. The necklace is resize scripted, and the eyes come in 3 system layer sizes, 2 types (regular and dark) AND pair of mesh eyes!

 

Have fun shopping, hunting, and be sure to stay fabulous!

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!
