Death Before Decaf

Death Before Decaf

It’s been a long time since I’ve been “hunting” in Second Life, but this is my personal favorite season for hunts. The Autumn Effect Hunt started recently, and I’m really excited about the items I’ve come across thus far. The Autumn Effect Hunt is a FREE hunt, and there are items for the men as well as the ladies. So far one of my favorite TAE hunt prizes is this fun fall outfit from The Little Bat.

I adore bats, they are part of classic Halloween iconography. Though I’ll tell you, I’d wear bat-themed clothing year-round without hesitation! This cute sweater from TLB is fully mesh and includes the needed alpha for classic avatars. I had no issue wearing it with my Matreya Lara body. Also included in the FREE TAE hunt gift from TLB are these rust-red colored corduroys. In my mind, corduroys are to fall fashion what bats are to Halloween, making this combo a perfect fall outfit, though you could wear each piece separately. Also fully mesh, these pants come in the usual standard sizes and have a matching alpha layer.

One of the many things I like about fall is the fact that it’s cool enough for me to enjoy hot coffee no matter what time of day it is. I’m not one who can drink hot coffee during the day in the summer, it just makes me melt, and not in a good way. This fun coffee cup is the FREE TAE hunt prize at Reckless. It’s my new favorite accessory. The cup is animated with a drinking animation, and includes a color/texture change hud. The hud allows you to change the cup and lid colors between black and white, and it allows you to change the texture of the cardboard sleeve. The option shown reads “Death Before Decaf” which I think should be my motto on some days! There is a second option (not shown) that reads ” If Loving Pumpkin Spice Makes Me A Basic Bitch, Then A Basic Bitch I’ll Be “, and I have to admit it made me giggle.

Okay, I’ll admit it, there needed to be a better photo of these hauntingly pretty eyes from Arise. They are the FREE TAE gift at Arise. These pale peachy-copper colored eyes come with a standard eye layer, and optional mesh eyes. Every once in a while I enjoy wearing an eye color that is a major departure from what one might consider normal. The second I saw these, I had to show them. They are beautiful and give a truly unique look.

Alright Fab Free, here are the details, Happy Hunting!

It’s My Party, and I’ll Eat FroYo If I want To!

Sometimes a girl’s just got to have fun — even if it means throwing herself her very own FroYo Party! And since it’s my party, I’ll eat FroYo if I want to!

It's My Party and I'll Eat FroYo If I want To [1]

But first! We have to set up! Balloons and a table are a necessity! I found these great gift balloons for only 1L at the Sherbert main-store. They are currently a Halloween gift that have been set out for anyone, no group required! The colors are fun, and they are only 2 prims for the trio plus the spider textured brick they are tied to! That’s not a trick, that’s a treat!

I also made away with fabulous goodies at The Arcade Gacha. You’ll want to take a swing by there as well. This adorable Playful Pastimes Table by R(S)W & YKFK is only 1 prim and is currently a FREE gift at the event!

And because today is all about having fun… my pose! This fun pose by Sparrowtree Studio is called “Turkey Day Pose” and includes the spoon on your nose! (As well as other props such as turkey legs and such… all optional of course!). It may seem a little early for Thanksgiving, but I was thankful for this 1L marketplace find!

It's My Party and I'll Eat FroYo If I want To [2]

And what is a party without food? Again, The Arcade Gacha did not let me down. Not only did I pick up this fun rez-day cake for only 1 prim and 50L per spin at the [ keke ] Gacha but I also found this great FREE gift by Fancy Decor near their Gacha! Free FroYo — spoon included! It’s meant to be a hold-able food prop (it even has the animation for eating!), but I discovered that I could rez them out and they were only 1 prim each! Yay for that!

Astrid’s hair is also a lucky FREE find at the The Arcade Gacha! If you stop by .Blue Olive.‘s hair Gacha, this hair style there is a FREE gift. There are also two rare styles in the machine as well. The commons in the machine are a variety of bangs (this FREE style has an option to make the “free” bangs disappear so you can add the Gacha bangs on) or headbands. I’m only showing you the FREE style, and even by itself it’s adorable! The FREE style includes a color change hud with four colors for the hair as well as several colors for the bands on the pony tails too.

The picture above is also your chance to scope out Astrid’s septum nose piercing… a golden find if I don’t say so myself! These septum piercings by (Yummy) were just 50L per spin at The Arcade Gacha. I didn’t get the rare, but I landed the Ethereal style in gold, and was just as happy, as all of these nose rings are all gorgeously detailed!

It's My Party and I'll Eat FroYo If I want To [3]

Of course all of that partying means Astrid is all tuckered out. Good thing she has comfy clothes to fall asleep in.

Be sure to stop by Prism Designs and pick up this fabulous dress that is the September FREE group gift. The group is FREE to join. The dress comes in all the standard mesh sizes and has some great details on it, including the cute cut-outs over the upper arms as well as a side-slits at the thighs.

Astrid’s shoes and socks are also a FREE gift, but you are going to have to hunt for them! You’ll need to make a stop by Lindy Modern & Retro Shoes and look for the little red dress to pick up the FREE Women’s stuff Hunt gift that is being offered at this creator’s store to sport these pumps at you own party. The pumps themselves are black only, but they come with a color change hud that will tint the socks to any color you choose (it even includes an RGB adjuster to let you fine-tune if you want)!

Winter is Coming for A Tiffany’s Bride

Sure, you could have a June wedding – but winter is coming. And for me there is something magical about the idea of a white wedding. And even if you aren’t planning a winter wedding… these gifts are too fabulous to pass up!

A Tiffany's Bride [1]

Right now if you stop by Tiffany Designs you can use your group tag to pick up this shimmering Jocey Bridal Gown in white for only 1L (the group is 50L to join). It includes Maitreya, TMP and Slink appliers as well as system layers for the body portion of the gown and though I’m usually a mesh-fan girl… this dress is perfect in flexi. Mesh could NOT have given this dress the ‘flow’ it needed with the glittering affect that the designer added into the flexi pieces, which are simply breathtakingly beautiful for your special day (or any formal dance really).

A Tiffany's Bride [2]

To add a little more sparkle to my Tiffany Design Jocey Bridal head piece, I hopped over to the Swank event, where I discovered that Zuri Rayna was giving away this lovely head piece in steel blue called Madeline. It is completely FREE, no group required. Just stop by the booth at Swank and pick it up!

And if that isn’t enough to convince you that all your second life dreams have come true, just check out this skin that Astrid is wearing? For me it was love at first sight! Who needs a groom? I love the soft freckles, the lovely shade of the lips, and the definition to the collarbones. And this Women’s Stuff Hunt gift from the Deluxe Body Factory was not only completely FREE but also contained Slink and Omega body appliers plus additional Omega lipstick appliers!

A Tiffany's Bride [3]

Of course… what wedding would be complete without a honeymoon? And Tiffany Designs didn’t let me down. Be sure to stop by the front desk on your way out and pick up this sexy Sara Lingerie in green for FREE (no group required for this one). This lovely little number came with system layers as well as Maitreya and TMP appliers to complete your look.

I also topped off my evening look with this sultry long loop necklace I found on Marketplace by Miam Miam. It is only 10L and has 15 color change options (I am showing the green because it matched the lingerie). It’s a piece of jewelry I’m sure I will find myself wearing again and again with that kind of versatility!
