Fishing is the reel deal.

Hello, dear readers and welcome to another Saturday Feature! While I’m not much for fishing when it comes to real world leisure time, I’ve since discovered that this activity in Second Life can be quite addictive. Interesting and free prizes always prove to be a great motivation and this is especially true at Sn@tch, an awesome store that regularly holds fishing events where you can try your luck with catching full outfits and more! When I saw the advert for the current round I just couldn’t resist in indulging that festive feel once more, even with Halloween a week or so behind us. Trusty fishing rod and a bucket of bait in hand, I headed on over to Sn@tch to see what the prize filled waters had in store for me.

The results are in!

As it turned out I was pretty lucky and at the time of writing this, I’m only missing one piece of the Spooky Mix and Match ensemble that’s being offered for this round of fishing at Sn@tch. That single pair of system tights continues to elude me and while I’m determined to lure them out, let’s get into the details of what I did catch.

To the left is a sweatshirt and leggings combo that I’m sure to be wearing around the grid as the days get chillier. While I’m only wearing one of the sweatshirt options (Pumpkin) there are six other cozy tops available with seasonally appropriate prints for your choosing. All sweaters come in five standard sizes (XS-L) and have their own alpha layer. As for those quirky Skeleton Leggings, they come in a set of seven different eye-popping colors. As stated above there are classic pants layers available for these leggings but if you’re using a mesh body never fear as there is an Omega applier hud waiting to be fished out as well.

Speaking of pieces of clothing to be fished out, the boots that I’m wearing on the left is available in the prize package as well. You needn’t mesh feet to fit into these stompers as they come in five standard sizes (XS-XL) with a shoe base and alpha layer. This strappy pair are just perfect for stomping in puddles.

And when you’re done with your rough and tumble, change it up with something more whimsical. The Spooky Mix and Match prize also comes with a sparkly crop top (five standard sizes XS-XL) and a spidery full-length skirt (four standard sizes S-XL). Both pieces of clothing include an alpha layer in their respective folders to help with the fitting. I adore this combination for it’s lovely and well-textured glitter, it provides just the right amount of shimmer and shine for this outfit to be worn on those glitzy SL nights.

While we’re on the topic of effortless glam the last outfit in the Spooky Mix and Match prize package is the Undead Bodycon dress. You’ll be able to choose from five different colors for this form fitting number and it comes in five standard sizes (XS-XL) with an alpha layer. I think I’ll never get tired of dressing up as a spooky skeleton girl with this dress on. So to recap, the Spooky Mix and Match fishing prize at Sn@tch contains twenty-four pieces which are one pair of boots, one full-length skirt, one crop top, five bodycon dresses, seven sweaters and seven leggings. A casual fishing rod costs 100L and can be purchased at Sn@tch or on Marketplace but its a great investiment as you can fish to your heart’s content.

Sprinkle in those little extras.

If you’re looking to expand your hair collection, GeMyles Couture is offering four mesh hairstyles in different colors for free on their Lucky Letter boards. You don’t need a group tag to participate and the letters change out fairly quickly. I managed to grab all three hairstyles in the picture above in under an hour or so but they are frankly, worth the wait. Coming in different lengths and styles, they prove to be the perfect quality topper (literally!) to any outfit.

You might also notice that I’m wearing a different pair of shoes for the picture on the right. These are a Halloween Gift that’s available at the ChicChica Mainstore for free (just find it at the base of the staircase) These shoes are made for the Slink High, Maitreya and Belleza mesh feet. I just can’t get over the beautiful bow and vivid orange and purple coloring.

It’s also worth a mention that the poses I’m using in the pictures are the Fabulously Free in SL group gift by One Creations. Since becoming a blogger I’ve realized I need a wide diversity of poses and am glad that to have discovered One Creations and their fluid poses. The store is currently part of the Menstuff Hunt so if you know a guy looking to add to his pose collection, go and do some hunting! (Psst the prize is 1L) For more information on the FabFree group gift, it was blogged fantastically {HERE} by Kathryn.

GET YOUR HUNT ON

November is proving to be a month for hunting. I took a look at the number of hunts on the grid, and I’m excited to say that I almost didn’t know where to begin. Between the Menstuff Hunt, The Medieval Fantasy Hunt, the El Dia Los Muertos Hunt, and so many others, this month is proving to be a Hunter’s Dream come true! I finally decided to start out my hunting with El Dia Los Muertos, though, since it is traditionally celebrated at the beginning of November, even if the hunt lasts through to the end of November. There are many wonderful prizes to to be had for your hunting time and 1L for each prize.

I made my initial stop by Roped Passion’s, as the creator has never let me down when it comes to creative attire. And as usual, there is a terrific hunt gift set out, and men have not been forgotten. (Ladies there is a gorgeous dress in the prize for you too, but I decided not to wear it in this post. 😉 )

WHAT IS INCLUDED

Your hunt prize includes the Modern Day of the Dead suit for men in all the standard mesh sizes (it is one piece for easy fitting) as well as its own alpha. You will also get a separate and optional mesh mask. The mask is editable as far as resizing to easily fit to different size heads/faces. I did a bit of tweaking to get it to fit to my face without any trouble.

The suit has a terrific texture on the sleeves and cuffs, but also on the back. In order to show you the design on the back, I’m including the vendor advertisement below so you can see the back of the outfit as well. It’s well worth teleporting to the Roped Passion’s main-store to hunt down this 1L prize!

Cynful #bubbles

Cynful #bubblesHello Again Fab Free’rs! I’m happy to be here sharing the freebie love with you! Today’s post features my favorite type of shirt, sweaters/sweatshirts, and my favorite style of necklace, a choker. It’s not often that the two items look well together, but I think it made it work! I hope you like them.

For me one of the best things about fall is it’s generally the beginning of sweater weather. Unfortunately that hasn’t been the case for me this year in real life, it’s still a tad too warm for sweaters. Thankfully I get to retreat to Second Life and enjoy the sweaters anyway. This particularly cute sweater is a FREE group gift at #bubbles. Included in the gift you’ll find this sweater in several fitmesh sizes, and body specific sizes. I think the off-the-shoulder style of this sweater from #bubbles makes it extra cute!

The choker Pru is wearing is another group gift, this time from Cynful. This particular gift is a thank-you gift for all the awesome Cynful Clothing & Co. customers and group members. The mesh choker/collar has a hud that allows you to change the wording between various empowering words like “strength” or “slay”. While using the hud you can also change the metal color of the word, as well as the color of the choker. This playful piece of jewelry is FREE to all group members, and the Cynful group is FREE to join.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Be Still My Gothic Heart

Be Still My Gothic Heart

Gothic is still in…

If you think I have to put away those amazing Halloween Gifts creators put out for us, think again. I’m re-purposing mine into fashionable Gothic accessories. Chop Zuey has always been generous with both group gifts (the join fee is 350L) and free to all gifts, and though I didn’t manage to show off this Skull of Corruption Necklace in time for Halloween, I knew it would have a place in my Goth-at-Heart wardrobe.

This necklace is one of the newest group gifts that you can pick up at Chop Zuey with your group tag. There are also two free to all gifts that match it (earrings and hair sticks) as well that I’m not showing. Those you can pick up nearby to get a beautiful matching look.

The little black dress…

I love little black dresses, and I love that there are so many ways to make a little black dress. They can be plain, business, creative, sexy, Gothic, or what have you! I was really thrilled when I saw that Meva had put out this nicely detailed little black dress for group members as a gift. It only comes in a size for Maitreya, but you might be able to fiddle with it to get it to fit a standard avatar.

I love the metal rings and straps and sexy cut outs. This is a real winner. The group join fee for Meva is 100L, but there are currently a total of 5 beautiful group gifts out for you to pick up, making it well worth your fee to join, if you’re not already in the group.
