Tidbit: Hubby’s Boutique – Lime Swirl Dress

Hubby’s Boutique - BodyThe other day I got a landmark from Kallista Olivier from Kallista’s Kreations about a shop called Hubby’s Boutique. She said there was a great free dress at this shop. After a little bit of hunting because the shop had moved since the landmark was created, I tracked down Hubby’s Boutique on Linji. Just inside the main entrance on the right are two freebie boxes, one box has a Lime Swirl Dress and the other has a Daisy Print Top. The Lime Swirl Dress reminds me of sherbet in the summertime.

I paired the Lime Swirl Dress with Jessica II from ETD in the blonde green texture. I still had on those great free shoes form Maitreya. So in honor of the person who tipped me off, I wore the opal choker from Kallista’s Kreations which is located the main location and at Freebie Jeebies.

It Started With a Skirt

The Skirt - BodyAfter visiting the Neko Fair, I decided to hunt around different Neko places for some more freebies. I found a place called Neko Gear that had several freebie boxes piled inside the front entrance. There were two outfits that weren’t really my taste but I will show them below, a Neko radio, a dog tag necklace, a can of Neko cola, and “the skirt”. I love this skirt. It is a red and black pleated skirt with black spiked belt at the waist and it came in 3 sizes. The dog tag necklace was cute to wear with the skirt as well. The only problem was there was nothing to go with it. This outfit needed a great top.

First step is to find a good shirt to go with the skirt. I do a quick search of my inventory for shirts that are black or red. I come across a freebie top that I had gotten a PixelDolls when I picked up that great dress set. It is a black crop top with 4 separate prim attachments for the arms. Without even leaving Neko Gear I was will dress with the shirt being a great match for the skirt. Another girl in the store told me my outfit looked a bit more Gothy than Neko.

Gothy. I could try to do that. Another search of my inventory turns up the Sin Skins freebie in a creamy white shade called Whisp. I knew I did not have good Gothy shoes but had seen a pair at Sarah Nerd’s Freebie Paradise. I am off and running. On the second tier at Sarah Nerd’s, right near my favorite Mary Janes, is a pair of shoes called Scorned. They are a pair of black heels with silver metals plating and silver spikes. These are the perfect shoes for this outfit.

One last thing is needed to complete the entire outfit. The perfect hair and it must be black, of course, for that just right look. I head back over to The Gnubie Store and began looking at the hair from Panache on display. There are two price ranges $1L and $5L. As I am about to settle for the $1L hair I overhear two girls chatting that this $5L hair is at Free Dove for free. Woo! I run over to The Free Dove and grab the Panache style that was calling to me called Candie Vonta. Just to be on the safe side I also grabbed the other Panache style, Faith Midnyte, because you never know what you are going to need a variety of hair. Both styles came in 19 different colors.

So, it all started with a skirt and ended with a cute Gothy outfit. Along the way I found tips from other shoppers and visited several stores but I like the end result. It goes to show you that you do not need to match piece with other items they come with but you can go off on your own creative tangent to make the outfit your own style.

SugarCubes in my Anime

SugarCube - Newbie Pack BodyYou have looked around SL and figured out that you do not want the photosourced look but instead are more of a cosplayer and want that anime look. Well, you are in luck because there is a store that has everything to get your started and it is all free. SugarCube has everything that a cosplayer would need to get started in Second Life from shape to skins to clothes. So hold onto your extraordinary large eyes and take a step into the world of Anime.

There is a newbie starter kit(located inside on the right wall) that has 3 skins, 2 pairs of eyes, 1 wig, 1 pair of shoes, 1 pair of jeans, 1 t-shirt and 1 shape. The skins are all very pale in color with the light tan(really a soft creamy color) being the darkest. There are brown and blue eyes to go with the hair that is a medium brown color. The shape is very tiny with an itty bitty waist as well. The shape is not for those looking for a realistic one. To get a comparison on how the skins look on a regular shape, I will show one close up of my usual shape with the skin on. Next to newbie pack box is a freebie hair kit with the same hair inside even though it has a different name. So save yourself the time and don’t bother with this box.

Outside in front of the shop are several other freebies, mostly clothing, that would go great with any avatar. The sandals are the soda bubble tee are both inside the newbie kit so you can skip these as well. The skinny jeans from the kits are also there but they come with a tank top so you might be interested in grabbing another pair. The other items are a ugly duckling outfit and two other shirt boxes(a flower tank and a kitten tee). If you are into photosourced clothing then you might want to skip these freebies because all of the items are handpainted.
