Greetings, Fabulous Readers! I hope you are having a relaxing weekend. After recovering from his traumatic experience at the V.E.T. last week, Ripley quickly bounced back and soon headed off, nose to the ground. With nary a step off target, he led me directly to Entice and didn’t stop until he sat in front of the Midnight Mania board. After looking up at the polka dot dress, then back at me, Ripley whined, then tapped the board with his paw. I bet you know by now, I’ve learned it’s best to follow my pup where ever he takes me. Sure enough, Rip’s intuition was right on the money. When I logged in to SL the next day, I saw the inventory offer from Entice and set straight to opening the box and pulling out the Side to Side dress.
With its bright, circular pops of color splashed across a black background, and a red belt to accentuate the waist, this cheery dress offers a fun addition to your SL wardrobe and won’t put even the slightest ding in your budget. The Midnight Mania board does require you to join the Entice group, but it’s free to join, and there are a bunch of lucky boards and gifts just waiting for members to claim. On our way out, Ripley befriended this adorable Corgie in a lobster outfit and I had to take a quick snapshot of the little guy. Isn’t he cute?
In search of the perfect accessories, the pupster and I journeyed over to Cae, one of my favorite jewelry stores. As we arrived, I noticed the glowing Gacha Guardian Rune Stone right away. Cae has a free charm bracelet set out and you can try your luck on the Gacha board for a plethora of Trick or Treat charms for 75L a turn. From an adorable pumpkin, a spooky ghost, a witch hat, a spider, and my favorite, the silver cat (well, my name is Kat :P), these charms all magically attach to the free bracelet with the included HUD. You can opt to wear Cae’s bracelet as a simple chain, snap on a single charm, or add as many as you like. Now, I have to admit, Gacha machines are my nemesis and Ripley’s eyes became a bit worried as I was determined to get…. that….cat….charm. It didn’t take long, though, and I soon had a jingly charm bracelet to add a Halloween theme to my outfit.
All that was left was a cute pair of shoes. Ripley and I had read Astrid’s post here about the Spooktacular Goth Hunt over at Swank Events, and decided to check it out. After a short time of searching, we discovered the black rose containing the free prize from Ghostyss, which is this gorgeous pair of Carrie heels for slink high feet. I particularly like the way these sweet black shoes have a thin cord that wraps around your ankles and ties in an adorable bow on the back. There are numerous black roses scattered around the Swank Events show room, in designer’s booths and cleverly hidden all around, so look everywhere and you will discover LOTS of prizes, all set for sale at 0L. The hunt runs until October 31st.
Now, Ripley must have some Blood Hound coursing through his veins, because after we finished at Spooktacular, he was off and running toward another hunt, with me scrambling to keep up with his racing paws. This time, he led me to LaBoheme for the Halloween Hunt, which is a 1L hunt that runs through November 2nd. All you have to do is locate the glowing jack o’lantern cleverly concealed in the store and soon you’ll have two sets of nail polish for Slink, Omega and Maitreya. I’m wearing the “Dark Passion” polish (this shade is one of the ten colors in the HUD) for this outfit, but in the hunt prize, you also get a spooky Catacomb polish as well).
A trip to Black Basalt Beach was a perfect way to end the day. Ripley and I explored the lovely grounds, had fun playing fetch and followed some shy deer across a log suspended over a gully. There are so many sights to see at this beautiful sim. If you have free time and love to visit SL locations, I encourage you to check it out. Until next Sunday, happy shopping, my friends!
