Free SWANK

Hawker's House at SWANKWe are half way through the month of October, so you’ve got just at two weeks left to make it over to the SWANK Event and check out amazing offers from some of the grid’s best designers. Additionally, you’ll find that many of the designers have set out FREE gifts as part of the event. Some gifts do require the SWANK group tag, but not to worry, the group is also FREE to join.

I am drenched in deals today!

I found my had to have dress at the Flawless Frightful & Delightful Cart Sale & Hunt which runs thru the end of the month. Its from the More Than Ever cart and is their Exclusive item (all the carts have one) for the event. Spiders in the Dark Dress is specially priced at 50L. There is also a hunt going on most carts have a pumpkin for FREE on them with all sorts of types of gifts from clothes, accessories and skins. So grab those pumpkins for some treats. I ran across my fabulous mesh Halloween witch hat with pumkins & spiders on the Marketplace for FREE and it has a color change hud. It has great detailing and this color went perfect with the dress. My delicate Celebration ring with color hud is from Chop Zuey and is a generous FREE for all no group to join gift. It includes both a woman and men ring and with a quick edit I got it to work on my slink hands. Over at the Kustom9 event which runs thru November 10th its their birthday and many of the stalls have out gifts. All gifts are priced 9L but are well worth more just like these shoes from N-core. The Isis coral shoes wit slink, Belleza, Maitreya, TMP and N-core X-treme high feet. My hair is also from Kustom9. It is the gift from Mithral Apothecary. You get this lovely Ergot mesh hair in regular and busty.

You see the Mirthal Ergot hair from Kustom9 here again, just a lovely mesh blonde everyday hair well worth 9L. My Regina Salve bracelet with color hud is another FREE to all gift from Chop Zuey, no group to join. You get both right and left bracelets. My elegant Malibu Mesh Maxi Dress Pack is another FREE to all gift this time from Rebel Hope. You get this mesh dress in 11 different colors. I picked the peachy to show you as it goes with my new N-core shoes.

I am off to follow a lead on some more freebies to bring your way shortly!

Death Becomes Lady Jezebeth in a Den of Spiders

Death Becomes Lady Jezebeth in a Den of Spiders 1

Morticia: [to Gomez] I’m just like any modern woman trying to have it all. Loving husband, a family. It’s just, I wish I had more time to seek out the dark forces and join their hellish crusade. [Morticia Adamms – Character. The Adamms Family Values 1993.]

Ah yes… nothing like classic old school Gothic horror to make your Halloween delightful. Spiders, cobwebs, long straight hair, and tight fitting red gowns — a Gothic beauty has it all. Friendly smiles just are not for her… not when she has the beautifully grotesque to keep her company!

And the Along Came a Spider Hunt and PurpleMoon came through on this deal (as well as a few other designers) on some sweet surprises to make even Morticia Adamms pause in her pursuit of seeking out the dark forces!

Start with a craw over to Lilith’s Den to pick up their 1L Along Came a Spider Hunt Gift — this Along Came a Lloth Theater Stage building set up. It is a mere 25 prim — all decor included. The candles, pictures, table, and rug are each separate pieces and copy-able so you can mix and match to your heart’s content!

Be sure to also drop by to nab this classic dress from PurpleMoon Creations which is fully mesh in all the standard sizes and includes glove appliers for all your mesh body needs (omega, slink, etc.). I love that this dress can pull off a classic Gothic look, but would also be great for the ballroom, Valentine’s day, or any other formal occasion! You can pick up this classic beauty FREE with your Group membership which is a mere 50L to join but comes with regular gifts that are just as lovely as this one.

Morticia: So… you still desire me after all these years? The old ball and chain?
Gomez: Forever!
Morticia: I’ll get them! [Morticia Adamms – Character. The Adamms Family Values 1993.]

Don’t worry, this fabulous skin and hair combination from Lumae and MINA won’t feel like a ball and chain at all!

I wanted to first give you a close up of the two skins available currently as gifts at Lumae. One is a completely FREE group gift courtesy of Lumae and SL free and offers. Join the SL free and offers group for FREE and pick up the gift from the Lumae main store. This one is pictured above and is called Lumae :: Niska – Varda – Death Becomes Her. The second fabulous Halloween skin is called Lumae :: Niska – Varda – Lady Death V2 and is this month’s FREE group gift from Lumae. This group is also FREE to join and the close up of this skin is pictured below.

If you hop over to the Kustom9 Birthday Celebration, for the sweet birthday price of only 9L you can pick up this great Gothic Hair by Mina called Jezebeth in Blood. It comes with a Halloween pallet of colors ranging from black to white with bloody tips. Above, Astrid is sporting it in black.

Morticia: [confronting Debbie in her house] You have gone too far. You have married Fester, you have destroyed his spirit, you have taken him from us. All that I could forgive. But Debbie…
Debbie Jellinsky: What?
Morticia: …pastels? [Morticia Adamms – Character. The Adamms Family Values 1993.]

No! Not pastels! How terrifyingly unforgivable!

But I did want to give you an idea of how versatile the Jezebeth Bloody Halloween color change hud is. So I’ve shown you another color change in the picture above. It does range down to a white with bloody tips as well. It’s a stunning Halloween hair for any bloody occasion (or Gothic party wear).

Morticia: Wednesday, look at all of the other children, their freckles, their bright little eyes, their eager, friendly smiles. Help them. [Morticia Adamms – Character. The Adamms Family Values 1993.]

And help them we will! With one more fabulous gift! Besom is hosting a simply fantastic Midnight Mania board for a lovely hair called Alder which is well worth grabbing before it is gone. The slap rate is high (650) but with the popularity of the store, I had no problem getting the prize. The board closed early for me the day I went over to give it my slap and I had my hair. You can see that the Gothic curly locks were a great compliment to this gown, and the gift is a fatpack — ALL colors included. It is a Group needed midnight Mania Board, but the group is FREE to join, making this a completely FREE gift and well worth stopping by the store to get. Don’t miss out! And take a few friends with you!
