Free Accessories Day Continues!

whc accessories2_001

Free Accessories Day is underway and I wanted to put in another quick post to show off some more cool items. Many thanks are in order for Pru, who pointed me in the direction of a fantastic jewelry store called Tantalum and their exceptional Jack Or Jill Hunt prize.

The Xue Necklaces from Tantalum comprise a set of two distinct, unisex necklaces offered as a single free Jack Or Jill Hunt gift. They look awesome! The shorter necklace has a small silver skull on it while the longer one has a crystal pendant. Each necklace comes with color change scripting included with its resizer that enables you to choose between 7 metal textures for the chains and 19 different textures for the crystal. The hunt object for The Jack Or Jill Hunt looks like a small black hockey puck. It was not the easiest find, but it was worth every second I spent looking for it!

The super-detailed unisex leather cuff I am wearing is also from Tantalum. The Loco Bracelet is a free group gift and is superbly made. It comes in left-hand and right-hand versions and truly looks like it’s crafted out of leather and pewter! There is no chance this is not going to be in my wardrobe for a long time.

Lastly, I don’t know if this item actually counts as an accessory, but I don’t care. B*FLY‘s free prize on the Menstuff Hunt is the Fallen Tattoo. It is an excellent, tough-looking sleeve design which is so good I couldn’t resist including it in the picture! It comes with appliers for Adam, Slink and TMP and is a great tattoo to add to your collection.

That’s it for me today. I hope your day has gone as wonderfully as mine has. If you are hunting, always remember to keep your eyes peeled for group gifts, MM boards, and other items. It is always nice to find a special surprise you might have otherwise missed. Take care everyone and I will see you on the grid!—–WHC Riler

Accessory Day – Finishing Touches

Finishing Touches

Need just a little something to finish off your outfit?

Here are some basic goto accessories and a couple of statement pieces you may want to ad to your wardrobe.

I like to just toss on a tank and some jeans when playing with accessories so I can really focus in on them.

There are group gifts, hunt items, dollarbies and freebies.

From the above pic both my cool fun Whale purse and sunglasses are FREE group gifts and the groups are FREE to join. My purse is from 187, just a sheer fun item sure to turn heads. Plus lots of other to GGs grab while you are there. My sunglasses are from Glamistry but require the SL F & O group tag. No worries you can join the group from the pink sign above the gift.

Finishing Touches
My cute heart hair pins are from the Color me Project which runs til Feb 25th. There are all sorts of FREE gifts there, these came from the Le Coq D’or stall. You can wear just 1 or all 4 since they attach separately. You can edit them into just the right spots in your hair.

Finishing Touches
My 2 hearts necklace is from the Vintage Valentine Hunt and costs 1L. You also have the option to buy it for 25L if you really don’t wanna hunt but its really easy to find so save yourself those lindens. The it! shop is the stop for this prize and the hint is “Well aren’t you the lucky one!”

Finshing touches

I found these cool Gem Wing cuff Earrings by R.icielli for 1L on Marketplace. You get both right and left earrings. You can edit them for a good fit so they will probably even work with mesh ears.

Finshing touches

This pretty FREE Marquessa Diamond pink set by EarthStones is lovely to have for your next formal event. The set comes in 3 separate boxes, necklace, bracelet and earrings. There are also several other gifts for you to pick up making the 250L group join fee worth it. You do have to take a long walk to get inside to where the gifts are don’t give up they are there. My Opulant mask is a FREE hunt from the Jack and Jill hunt (JOJ) which runs til Feb 29th. This is on the Jill path, found at Melonopolis Use the hint “Oh No! Hurry! It’s on FIRE!!!

Happy Free Accessory Day Everyone!

whc unknown comic 2_001

I hope you had a memorable Valentine’s Day, however you chose to spend it. Today Fab Free is putting up freebie and cheapie accessories that deserve a moment in the spotlight. Hopefully, something we love will strike your fancy.

One of my favorite stores, Kauna is well known for high quality men’s clothing. So, it came as a shock to me when I found the Paper Bag Head in their marketplace store! For only 10L, it comes with 9 textures and a matching hand puppet! Relive your fleeting moments of fame as the unknown ventriloquist, and laugh yourself silly!

I am currently covering the great Menstuff hunt, and one of the coolest accessories is this free Celtic Necklace from Timeless Designs. Originally posted here, there isn’t a great deal more to say about it other than it is well made and would complement a wide variety of outfits. The silver beads and cross on the black cord are an extremely masculine look and for free, this is an excellent pick up.

whc 911 2_001

Swagga‘s marketplace store has several very interesting freebies, but my favorite was this highly-detailed ball cap. It was created as a free tribute to the bravery of the first responders of 9/11, and when I laid eyes on it, I was sure it had to be included in this post. First rate work, it is a nice memorial to an exceptional group of people.

Rebellion made the sunglasses in this pic, and a visit to their store will reveal this and four other quality free group gifts! Their system is a little different than most. Pick up the free group gifts you want, then before wearing them put on your Rebellion name tag. When you put the items on while wearing the group tag, the items will be enabled. It is easy to do and for items like these great sunglasses, worth it.

One last (but certainly not least) accessory from the Menstuff hunt I am thoroughly enjoying is the free Sergeant’s Bling Necklace from V-Spot. Simple and extremely masculine, this Menstuff Hunt prize is one that many of us are going to want to pick up. Items like these are great reminders that quality jewelry is not just made for women.

Ok, that is all I have to say at the moment I am off to hunt more bargains. Take care everyone and I will see you on the grid! (and also on Marketplace)—–WHC Riler

Accessorize Your Fantasy!

Roleplay and fantasy have always been a huge part of my Second Life experience, and truly great roleplay outfits are usually defined by their accessories. So! This accessories post is all about accessories for different types of roleplay or fantasies!

Accessories Day Post Picture 1

I put together this whimsical outfit with a FREE soft yellow dress by antielle. which I found on the marketplace. It might be new to some of you as it hasn’t been blogged in a while, but some time back, Tiana Omizu showed the dress HERE. It’s a lovely mesh little number in a soft yellow and all the standard sizes. But we all know that a dress is just a dress unless you add the right details. Accessorize!

To add my fantasy feel to this dress I donned this amazing Coral Witch Headress in gold (there are five colors in the Marketplace pack) from Aii ~ The Ugly and the Beautiful. The 5-pack of colors is only 10L and these headresses are modifiable as well!

My Earcuffs are by PoshTale and are a FREE Marketplace gift. These are colorchange with three color choices. I went with the gold, but you could chose red or blue. They fit perfectly over human shaped ears to add an elven and fantasy feel.

Hair – Magika – Now
Dress – antielle. Marin Magique Sunny! Gift (0L/FREE on the Marketplace/ First shown HERE by Tiana Omizu)
Earcuffs – PoshTale – Eru EarCuffs (0L/FREE on the Marketplace)

Sometimes roleplay or fantasies go a bit darker… for those days (or nights!) I found a great one stop shop for you. Tabou! Here you can pick up three group gifts sure to make for some steamy fantasy roleplay. Currently the Tabou Group is FREE to join and you can pick up this blindfold, septum nose piercing and bracelet as FREE gifts. I did edit the bracelet by moving it up to make an armlet, as it’s modifiable. So if you have a bit of editing skills, I imagine you could make it into an anklet or other versatile piece!

Hair – Exile – Temptation Waits
Bra – {Luxuria} Naughty Rose in Black
Blind Fold – Tabou – Blind Love – Bloody (0L/FREE Group Gift/Free to Join Group)

Accessories Day Post Picture 3_001

I’ve always thought that Greek and Romanesque roleplay looked lovely and inviting. The feel of it to me is divine! I put on a simple silk as my base, but that is never enough to give you the proper look. To get the look I wanted, I finished off this silk with two great accessories from two amazing stores.

First, stop by Luas Urban Style. My Owl Jewel Set is a FREE lucky letter board available to Luas group members. The group is FREE to join. It includes the necklace and earrings shown above, as well as a ring (not shown).

I picked up the bold Gadhra Metals necklace from Salt & Pepper. It is their most recent group gift. The gift is FREE with group membership. The group is 100L to join but the frequent, quality gifts make it well worth joining. This was a set which included matching earrings as well (not shown), and the set is also color change for several metal choices.

Sometimes we all need something a little whimsical and innocent. Remember when the tooth-fairy was real and we still believed in unicorns? I love this FREE February Group gift from [MUSE] NSP Florals. The little Unicorn Daisy is sweet as can be. The group is 75L to join, but with great monthly offers like this, it is worth the investment.

Accessories Day Post Picture 5

To wrap up, we all have our wild side! I began my look by picking out this outfit called Antiope by Sweet Lies from the Marketplace. It is only 59L and modifiable for an easy fit. It has a feel that is perfect for lots of roleplay settings, which I love!

To give it a finishing touch, I added another Marketplace item: a 1L gift from Old World — this Medieval Fish Bone Necklace. The Necklace has all the terrific details we know and love Old World for, and for the sweet little price of 1L, it is a terrific touch to finish off a wild look.

Accessorizing Freely

ECCO Gifts

Wow! I have to say I am amazed at all the awesome free accessories we have all been able to find!! I’m excited to share with you my finds as well. I hope you enjoy them. I love it when stores keep their previous group gifts available for new members. ECCO is a shop that does just that. The ECCO V.I.P Updates group has a one-time join fee of 200 lindens. Once you’ve joined the group you will be able to click the Group Gift vendors and get each and every one of the past group gifts displayed. The above photos show just a few of the currently available gifts. From left to right, the first one is the most recent Valentine’s Day gift from ECCO. This heart pendant comes with a color change hud to adjust the metal of the necklace, and it has re-size scripts. This is the sort of necklace you could definitely wear every day and with any outfit. Next, the necklace with matching bracelets that read “Beautiful” are the 8th Rez Day gift at ECCO. This classic set is also one that is very versatile and could be worn with just about anything. It also includes re-size scripts for easy fitting. Finally from ECCO I personally really like this necklace. It’s a great statement piece that comes with a color change hud to allow you to adjust the color of different parts of the necklace for unique looks.

Tantalum Glow

The first two items pictured above are from the Lucky Boards at one of my favorite jewelry stores, Tantalum. You will need to join the Tantalum group to play the Lucky Boards, however the group is FREE to join. The three tiered necklace on the left is really detailed, and so pretty on. In the center photo are the Kelly Garter Straps. This is an accessory you don’t see often, which I think makes them even more unique. These pretty garter straps include a color/size change hud for easy adjusting and the ability to match them to your outfit. There are several other Lucky Boards with equally lovely prizes to be had, all for FREE at Tantalum. The pretty little clutch in the third photo is the current group gift at Glow Designs. This pastel purse is just right for spring. It also includes a color change hud with several pastel color options. You will need to join the Glow Designs group which has a one time join fee of 10 lindens to get the gift.

SWANK Gifts

Finally, each of the above pictured accessories are FREE gifts available at the current round of SWANK. You may need to join the SWANK group and wear your tag to pick up the gifts, however the group is also FREE to join. Starting from the left, these body jewels are a gift from Indulge Temptation. The little rhinestones playfully spell out Diva, and have a color/resize hud for easy adjustments. This gift also includes matching body jewels for other areas of the body. Next is the SWANK gift from Semi-Precious. This cute little elephant necklace also comes with some dainty hoop earrings which are not shown. To the right is the gift from Zuri. This pretty circlet is highly detailed, and I found it really easy to fit. It’s truly a pretty piece that would be great for a wedding or any black tie event. It would also be perfect for a fantasy look.

I hope you like my Accessory Day finds! Here are the details, Enjoy!

FREE (ish) AVATAR ACCESSORY DAY – Say It In Sparkles!

Hi there Fabulous Readers! Today is FabFree’s Round Up Day and all of our bloggers will be working together today to bring you blog posts featuring free and free(ish) avatar accessories and wearables!

We have done round ups for skin, hair and shoes so far and you know… and it was a breeze for me because it was items I wear all the time, but I really struggled to find accessories.  My style is pretty simple and non-cluttery (possibly lazy – lol), and on occasion I’ll add an accessory or two.  I decided to go in a little bit of a different direction from the normal jewelry/handbags/pets type accessories and show you some fun typers!

If you are not familiar with how these work, you add them to your avatar and when you type in local chat – they do things such as poof, sparkle, animate or make noise depending on how they are designed.  No one will miss it when you have something to say, that’s for sure!
accessories1

Nice Puppy Flower Typer (free / 0L / marketplace) –  As you type, a ton of bright and colourful flowers appear, falling to the ground and bouncing back up.

*~* KoKoMi *~* Typing Particle #3 (1L / marketplace) – Pink butterfly particles appear as you type.

accessories2
Esgardio Magic Typing (free / 0L / marketplace) – This animated typer creates balls of sparkles that appear in your hands and as your hands wave around while you talk, the sparkles follow your hands like you are casting spells.

Le:Mon I Need Light Typer (10L / marketplace) – Animated and includes sound.  A ball of light appears with smaller sparkles around it as you type.

Dae Signs Glimmer (free / 0L / marketplace) – This typer animates your hands to hold a ball of sparkle particles.
