Calle’s FabFree Photo Submission – August “Aloha”

While the lovely Tiana has been doing an awesome job showing off many of the goodies you can get from the Aloha Fair, I thought I would show you a few of the gacha items you can get from the fair. Also, how convenient is it that this months photo challenge of Hawaiian Luau is perfectly timed for the fair. Hmm…do you think it was planned that way? 😉

My first gacha prize is this gorgeous, long mesh dress from ArisAris. I was lucky, and on my first shot I got the Haway2 LongDress Rare, I just love the red colour in the leaf pattern. This is a mesh dress that comes in the standard sizes, and it fits like a dream! The ArisAris gacha is only L$50 a play, and all the patterns are lovely, so I would have been happy no matter which one I won.

Any female heading to a luau must have a flower behind her ear. Did you know that you are telling everyone if you are single or taken depending on which ear you put the flower behind? If you wear a flower behind your left ear, it means you are married, taken, have a significant other, or maybe you just don’t want anyone bothering you! If you wear a flower behind your right ear, it means you are single, available, and approachable. Now, I forgot which ear was which when taking my pictures…mine should be on the right side, doh! Either way though, my pretty pink hibiscus flowers are another gacha win, this time from Dew. This gacha is only L$30 a play, and they are so real looking, they will complete any Hawaiian look.

The only issue I have with long mesh dresses, you have trouble seeing the shoes, and I had to show you the ones I got from the Bliensen + MaiTai gacha. Upon hiking up my dress a little, I took a great close-up so you can see the fine details in the Ulua Sandals, red/brown starfish edition. Shhhh…they do not fit within the L$75 and under guidelines we follow, as they are L$77 a play, but I couldn’t help but show them to you, I’m sure you understand 🙂

One last thing before I go. I headed to the ALOHA HAWAII sim to take my pictures, and in wandering around, I found an area that looks like old rock ruins. There is a little box there, asking if you want to dance. If you click it and take a HUD, you can go anywhere on the Island and dance whenever you want (although, it will only work on the island, as I found out). In the World dance section, if you scroll a few pages, you will find a bunch of hula dances, specifically the ‘hula A’ dances. As you can see, I had a lot of fun dancing in my luau outfit. If I had a program to record myself, I would have taken a video and posted it for you all to see. Instead, I settled on several shots to give you an idea of the dance moves. Seriously, I had a blast.

Alright Fabbie’s, I hope you have enjoyed my submission for the FabFree Photo Challenge, I can’t wait to see what you all come up with in response 🙂 In honour of the theme, I will leave you with a Hawaiian goodbye. A hui kaua, malama pono. Which means ‘Until we meet again, take care, be right.’

Eat Your Heart Out Ariel!

Little Mermaid, who? lol I had a lot of fun posing in this fabulous Group Gift bikini from Knockers. The red hair was a must! Those of you that have read my posts before have probably learned of my love for the retro pin-up look. For this reason, I love Knockers. The store has a very rock-a-billy pin-up vibe, and it’s so much fun! This fantastic high-waist cut bikini can be worn with or without appliers for Lolas Tango, Phat Azz, and WowMeh. This little number is a must for any retro wardrobe. Right now the Knockers Group is Free to join, and again this is a completely Free gift, so don’t miss out! In addition to my sexy new bikini I ran over to Flounce and picked up this beautiful new Group Gift skin. The skin comes in two tones, and a slew of fun add-ons like blush and beauty marks. The gift also includes appliers for Lolas Tango, and Slink (hands, feet, and Physique). The skin is named Celia, and she really is a lovely find. The Flounce Group is also Free to join at this time. Get this gift while you still can! Finally, no pin-up look is complete without the perfect manicure and pedicure! I picked up this gorgeous set of nail appliers from ZOZ at the current round of Designer Circle. The detail in these nails is too pretty, so I’ve included a copy of the vendor photo at the bottom of this post for you to see!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Better luck next time I guess….

I enjoy a man in a uniform, and I thought that if I set myself up in a cute outfit and hung around an area where these guys would frequent, that maybe I might catch their eye. So I ended up at an airport, posed my cutest pose, and sadly, no luck. On the bright side, I found some really great cheapies for my look that I think you will enjoy.

I got this sexy dress from the current round of the OMG Room for only L$1, and it is the Erika dress by ::JK Style:: . It is a mesh dress in standard sizes, though I had to go up a size, so they may fit a little smaller. It comes with a HUD to change the colour of the tiger stripe area and there are 6 different colours to choose from. I did show you the earrings and bracelets that come with this dress, HERE, and there is also a ring, that I have not shown. So all in all, it’s a pretty nice set up for a great price! Can’t beat that.

The necklace and earrings that I am wearing are the female hunt gift, En Route,  for the Around the Grid in 80 days hunt, from B!ASTA and was already shown HERE by Love. The little blue ‘gems’ in the golden hoops are actually globes, and I really love the tassel hanging from the necklace chain. I’ll remind you, this is a L$1 hunt, and for all you male readers, or women with males in their life…LOL, there is a men’s hunt prize hidden at B!ASTA as well, so everyone wins!

Last up, but definitely not the least, is the August group gift from 7 Deadly s[K]ins. This beautiful, slightly sunkissed skin has really pretty dark purple eyeshadow with a hint of gloss to the simple lips. I love when a skin is not heavily made-up, especially when it is so easy to add our own makeup. Unlike past group gifts, where the appliers for the skin were set out for you to buy separately, this time, the appliers are included for free, so almost all of you meshy-bits lovers should be happy 🙂 I loved not having to try to tint my hands and feet 😉 The gift is free, just slap on your group tag, and currently, the group is L$200 to join, but there have been many occasions lately where the group fee was lowered quite a bit or even free, for a short time. So if you can’t warrant the L$200, which is more than fair for this months gift alone, keep your eyes open, there might be another cheap or free join session. Oh, and there is a new male skin gift out as well, so guys, take a look!

OK, I think I have hung around here long enough with no uniformed man on my arm to show off. Oh well, maybe next time, or maybe I need to find a different spot. The hunt is on!

Until next time, TTFN 🙂

Untitled

If you are looking for a great cover up for the beach then the Pearl City Tunic by KaraBaby could be for you. Its so pretty you could even get away with wearing this to a beach party. Flip Flops are a summer time essential and the Black and White Hawaiian Flip Flops by Romano Kona Kixx are going to be something thats going to be hard to take off this summer! We all know I love flowers in my hair, but for a seaside twist the Mermaid Hair Wreath by Grafittiwear makes an adorable change!

Untitled

There are several different dresses that you can find as gifts and dollarbies at the event. Here are a few of them! First the Hanky Short Mesh Dress by M&M is a bright fun and flirty beach dress that is bound to get you noticed with its floral print! The Alice Mini Dress (Red) by Like Design is the perfect summer evening date dress with its crimson fabric and daring neckline and lastly the Ke Alaula Kaftan by Entice is ideal for an afternoon of shopping or coffee with your friends in that little cafe right on the beach front!

You might remember the hair in this picture from my previous post about the Hair Fair. This was Exiles very generous dollarbie for the event and alot of people were disappointed when they missed it. Well be dissapointed no more as you can now find it in the subscriber at the Exile mainstore! Simply click to subscribe and then click again to bring up messages and you can find it under message number 1!

If you like the skin, you can find it at The Greek Isle Gacha event that started on 1st August and runs all month long! There are heaps of gachas there for you to play including the Lumae machine that this skin is from! It is called Elianna and is a special preview of an unreleased skin. There are 2 tones and 7 make ups each to collect! You can find the Lumae gacha on the bottom floor of the building along side the landing point.
