Last Lucid Dreams of a Sweet Summer

Summer has passed into fall… but my last lucid dreams of summer have not yet quite faded. And thanks to the final days of the Women’s Stuff Hunt, you too can relive the final dreamer’s dreams of evening stars and soft flowers. With the hunting closing down on September 30th, though, you’ll want to hurry if you are going to find any gifts from your favorite stores.

Last Lucid Dream of Sweet Summer

I love the chance to pick up new poses — especially those with ‘ready made scenes’ such as this “Lucid Dream” scene by Come Soon Poses. It includes all the lovely props, the single pose for your avatar (as shown above), plus the pink heart balloons that are just flying away out of Astrid’s hands (which you can’t see in the picture). This is a completely FREE gift from Come Soon Poses as part of the Women’s Stuff Hunt and well worth the searching for the die hard photographer (and for the rest of us too)!

Speaking of FREE gifts… check out my spunky skirt and sexy slip-on tube top from Sweet Temptations called September Morning! This is the September Group Gift from their main store and you can pick it up FREE with your Group tag until the end of the month. The group is FREE to join and there are only a few days left in September, so swing by and pick it up quick! The skirt is mesh and comes in all the standard sizes, while the top comes in system layers as well as a variety of applier huds for mesh bodies.

Astrid’s fantastic purse is perfect for any casual or fun occasion and has a hold animation that works great with your AO and any other pose. It’s another one you’ll need to run to hunt for before the end of the month as it is part of the Women’s Stuff Hunt and is the 1L Hunt Gift offering from Pixel Perfect Productions called Give a Hoot Purse. And it’s a hoot if I don’t say so myself!

I love trying on new skins and as I was doing my run through the Women’s Stuff Hunt, I found this ‘New-to-Me’ Skin store called LoveMe skins. Their Hunt Prize is this lovely skin in Sunkiss called Jessica. Once you find the little red shirt, the skin is yours for just 1L and includes a cleavage layer as well.

Now the Hunt gift does not include any appliers; however, there is a group gift up in the store as well. The group gift is FREE and the group is FREE to join and if you pick up the group gift it includes Slink hands and feet appliers (all skin tones included) so you’ll have those — very generous of the creator I think! That will give you two new skins plus the Slink appliers for your visit. You can also purchase any other additional appliers you may decide you need while at the store.

Last, but certainly not least, Astrid is sporting an elegant but every day set of jewelry that I think is a perfect transition from summer to fall — summery colors in a fall design! I love this Wine Autumn Leaves Jewelry Set by Cog & Fleur which is their Women’s Stuff Hunt Gift contribution and yours if you find the little red T-shirt for just 1L! Don’t miss out on the chance to add this dandy to your jewelry box!

Autumn is in Full Effect

Happy first day of Fall, FabFolks!

Autumnis in Full Effect

Welcome to my absolutely favorite time of year! I love the Fall. I love leaves and cool days and even the gray days of soft rain. Love it all. And The Autumn Effect Hunt is the perfect way to celebrate. Plus, it’s a FREE Hunt!  Both Prudence and WHCRiler have already shown you some of the great Hunt prizes from this Hunt. But with 79 stores in this years Hunt, I think we can show off a few more. 😉 This is the Autumn Sweater Dress from Dolle. It’s rigged mesh and comes with the five standard sizes. The details in the knit fabric make it for me. Every thing about it from the knit to the soft color is just spot on. The minute I saw it, I knew I was going to build a look from it. So on with the Hunt.

Autumn is in Full Effect

I picked up the boots from MOoh, one of my favorite quirky little shops. Again, the details of fabric and buckles just can’t be beat. The boots are unrigged so you can easily fit them to your feet… no special ‘feets’ needed.

Next had to be some jewelry. Once more we are spoiled for choice on this Hunt. But I settled on this gorgeous “Autumn” set from Blissiere. While I’m only showing you the necklace, the Hunt prize is actually a nice full set containing the earrings and a ring as well as the necklace. ( A little extra Jewelry note: I almost went with the lovely leaves necklace from 7 Mad Ravens so if you like Fall leaves as jewelry, check them out too! )

Rounding out my get up is the cute little leather clutch from Aurora. It’s a simple piece but I think that makes it classic! It has a hold animation built in that doesn’t seem to interfere with other AOs.

 

This is an awesome Hunt with some truly top notch prizes. So go get your Fall Hunt on until Oct15th will be gone… like crisp fall leaves in the wind.

You Drive Us Wild, We’ll Drive You Crazy!

Hey, it’s a group of Detroit rock kitties and tonight they’re gonna rock you! J&A Rock Culture has come out with this great T-Shirt as a FREE gift for The Autumn Effect Hunt. I can only hope they are on better terms with each other backstage than their famous idols are. The Men’s Long Sleeve T-Shirt Set-Indie 3 comes in five mesh sizes to guarantee an excellent fit. Plus, this FREE hunt gift comes with a hud giving you three texture color options. It is a very cute T-Shirt, and the texture and graphic design are fun indeed. On a trivial note, I am pretty sure I know which cat is Gene Simmons. That’s the one that looks like he just got the bill for another trashed hotel room. Next week, we will hear them covering Taylor Swift’s “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” on Unplugged, just you wait.

The Autumn Effect Hunt has several interesting hunt prizes that are definitely worth picking up. My eyes in these pictures are a fantastic FREE hunt prize from ARISE. Previously posted by Pru here, the Autumn eyes are a beautiful light color and an excellent pick up for those of us on Second Life that love to collect quality eyes. Zoom in on my pictures and I am sure you will see why I pounced on them the second I heard they were available as a hunt gift. The hunt object you are looking for on The Autumn Effect Hunt resembles a small hockey puck shaped prim. They aren’t very hard to find and are seriously worth the effort.

For clothes with a masculine look, camouflage is often used as a texture. V-Spot has a talent for making masculine clothing with a very real-world aesthetic, and their FREE hunt gift for The Autumn Effect Hunt is an excellent example. The Kamo T-Shirt is a ringer Tee, with the body having a realistic camouflage texture. The sleeves are light gray in contrast with the body of the shirt. Excellent design choices like that add up to create a style that appears simple and completely natural, giving this shirt the real-life look that I love. The Kamo T-Shirt comes in three basic Mesh sizes, plus an additional two Fitmesh sizes, so fit should not be an issue. This T-Shirt is definitely something that deserves your attention, as does V-Spot. So, pop by and take a look for this wonderful FREE hunt prize.

This was an excellent week to be a T-Shirt hunter. With my obsession for soft looking, realistic T-Shirts, I was absolutely in heaven as I worked on The Autumn Effect Hunt. The Loyalty is Royalty T-Shirt bears a catchy phrase that rings true. On a grid full of much meaner-spirited tees, this positive sentiment stands out charmingly. This FREE hunt gift from B-DAZZLED for The Autumn Effect Hunt comes in five sizes for men, two of which are Fitmesh. Included in the same box is a version for women in layers and with an Omega applier. It is an admirably attractive garment with a positive message. In fact, clothes like this could result in the Kiss kitties above reuniting for a world tour!

I want to point out these great jeans that I use often to show off blog items. Illi, one of my favorite stores on the grid has a pair of open belt jeans on their Midnight Mania board and they are a must for male avies who want a fantastic pair of FREE jeans. They are Mesh and come with a texture hud giving you 8 different denim colors, including the three I showed this week in my pictures. These are super versatile and quite well made. The target is extremely low right now since they have been on the board a while. It should not be hard to close the Midnight Mania Board every night for at least the next week to make sure more people have a chance to collect these awesome jeans.

That’s it for this week, time to put the Kiss kitties to bed and let them wander off into dreamland. They wanna rock and roll all night and party every day, but one bowl of warm milk and they are out for hours (just like me). Take care everyone and I’ll see you on the grid!—–WHC Riler
