Please… Don’t Feed the Vampires!

It is said that the nosferatu hunt throughout the night and sleep during the day. So I don’t know what I was thinking when I decided to spend a night walking through an abandoned part of old London.  I wasn’t able to sleep, and after a couple hours of beating the feathers out of my pillow, I finally tossed on some clothes, cinched up my boots, grabbed a bag of my favorite chips – garlic flavored kettle chips (so I carry a toothbrush around with me… don’t hate),  and went for a stroll in the moonlight.  It was a very peaceful walk and I was enjoying the solitude.. up until I heard, “bleh bleh bleh… ”  I turned to find that I was suddenly not alone. I was staring at a dark stranger wearing a cape, with odd eyes and a creepy smile and a hat that hadn’t seen the light of day since the Seven Years War. He had a strange pallor to his skin and when he smiled I could swear I saw fangs gleaming off the light from a nearby lamp post.

Then I put two and two together, after realizing what he had said and I replied,

“Really? Bleh bleh bleh?  Real vampires don’t say that, but that is a cool outfit, dude. Want some chips?”

I extended my bag to him and he took one whiff, shrieked and turned into a bat, causing all of his clothes to fall to the ground in a crumpled heap as he skittered away. As I watched him vanish into the murky night, I muttered, “must not be his flavor” and then checked out what he left behind. Being a discerning wearer of clothes, I wasn’t going to put on just any ol’ vampire outfit. So I checked the labels and discovered that I had scored on a bunch of free stuff! I donned all of the clothing and when I put on the hat… my hair, eyes and skin changed! Kinda creepy…  Then I felt something strange about my teeth and realized I was going to need to upgrade my dental insurance. I’d also lost my appetite for chips.. of any flavor. What good is it to have great teeth if I can’t eat chips??  I guess you can’t win ’em all..

The cool vampire outfit that Cal is wearing, which includes shirt, pants, and cape is a Trickster hunt gift that can be found at Vero Modero –

She’s an aDORKable D!va in her Sascha’s…

Adorkable D!va in Sascha's4

Shhhhhhh don’t tell Sascha…but I am previewing her November Member Group Gift…it is 50L to join her group, Sascha’s Designs…but she does that to keep the spammers out AND she makes it worth your lindens to join!!  Once you become a member you have access to an amazing array of previous monthly group gifts.  Sascha is also very generous with her members…with impromptu sales and 60L weekends…not to mention you usually get several skirt & top options in each dress you buy along with whatever accessories she has created for that gown/outfit (yes she does create more than just those gorgeous gowns). This monthly gown comes with the FrubbelDubbel (hey I didn’t name it!) skirt you see and you will also have the options to purchase the extra skirt styles.  Trust me…they are worth it!

Adorkable D!va in Sascha's3

I scored more fabulously free items with two more group gifts!!  The adorable Norma hair in Ruby is from D!va and it comes with a Bat Wing option…just in time for that haunting holiday coming just around the corner.  Norma is a group member gift but the group is free to join AND membership gives you access to lots of more pretty previous member group gifts….that is just all kinds of awesome.  The gorgeous peach and white diamond necklace is part of the Romance Set from Virtual Impressions (previous group gift/free to join)…Chrissy designs wonderful jewelry and she generously puts one of her designs out for her members to grab every month.  In addition to the monthly group gift…Virtual Impressions features other items at fabulous sale prices throughout the month.

My oh-so-enchanting pose is from aDORKable Poses.  It isn’t free (200L)…BUT you get four beautiful poses and the petals to wear for taking equally enchanting pictures of yourself in your Sascha’s gowns.   When you purchase your aDORKable poses at the inworld store you automatically bank 10% of the purchase price, as store credit, to put toward future store purchases….group membership NOT required!  I purchased some of my poses at her Marketplace store and had a few minor issues that ADORKable graciously and promptly rectified.

My shoes, skin, eyes and eyelashes were also not free but I shall list the details below.

The pics were shot on location at the Virtual Impressions landing point.

So what are you waiting for…go grab these fantastic freebies and get all gussied up…you deserve it <3<3

Samhain’s Gacha, Has Me Putting Spiders On My Body!

gachapost_011


I have an interesting relationship with spiders, I’m as scared of them as they are of me, so we normally don’t cross paths intentionally. However, the goodies at Samhain Gacha Event may have just changed this relationship for the better. The treats here blew my clothes off! Hence, me standing here in just my undergarments with spiders roaming my body. I let these creepy crawlers travel up my backside and down my frontside with this exquisite lingerie set and make-up called CB ~ Spiders- Outfit by Carrie Bridger of Carrie’s Lingerie.


gachapost_009gachapost_002


There is great detail on the top and bottom, and this is a perfect outfit for ending your Halloween festivities with you significant other. But, if you are like me and SL has a double meaning to also include Single Life, you can just look delicious for yourself.


gachapost_008


Now that we covered the lingerie and spiders, lets move on to the Spunki Dunk-Blue hair. I love the skulls at the front and back of the hair, it added a little funk to the outfit, and I will definitely rock this again. It doesn’t have to be Halloween to rocks skulls, plus blue is my favorite color.


gachapost_012


Lastly, whats an outfit without accessories! The *Petite* Elf black tears are another treat I found at the Samhain Gacha Event, made by [[A.R.C.+F.N.]]. The lovely pearl necklace, earrings, and bracelet set is created by, AIDORU. And yes, I am still wearing those black booties, please don’t judge me, I know I need help. 😀


Samhain Gacha


All together the Samhain Gacha Event has a lot of great items, if I could have attached it all to my body I would have! I also wanted to make sure you all had a sneak peek early enough, so you could make your way over and pick up things for yourself. Everything is not Halloween themed, so you can get items that cross over to different seasons. Plus, how can you turn down some trick or treat fun for around $25L an item.

Finding my SWAG and AlterEgo

swag1_final

“I made it to the sim and there was no lag
so I started walkin’ and collected some SWAG!”

The SWAG Fest is wrapping up soon and ends on October 31st. This is your last chance to score the SWAG freebies and dollarbies along with some exclusive merchandise only sold at this event. AlterEgo has a dollarbie with a mesh Logo Hoodie and mesh Logo Fitted Cap (seen below on the right). While I was there I couldn’t resist buying the mesh Black Swag Sweatpants at 250L that paired so well with the hoodie. My fellow bloggers Love and Renee have given me the nickname “The Diva”… and so of course I had to buy the Diva Fitted Cap as well for 50L. The mesh Checkered Nerd Glasses are a dollarbie from *Epic* and includes a HUD to change the color.

To find the freebies, cheapies, and dollarbies at SWAG look for the kiosks located around the parks in each shopping district.
