Tip Your Hat to Style

Tip Your Hat to Style

I really have to tip my hat to the creators who are participating in the Menstuff Hunt. The prizes this round are outstanding as usual. I ran across a new-to-me designer – Hot Fuss – and was pleased to come away with two items – not only the hunt gift, but also a lucky letter chair gift.

The Hat.

If you stop by Hot Fuss, you’ll be able to pick up this men’s fedora as part of their contribution to the Menstuff Hunt. It’s an excellent design in a fedora style and yours for only 1L and a little hunting time. It’s sure to add class and style to most any outfit. I didn’t have any trouble adjusting it to fit my head, and it looked great over the top of my usual hairbase.

The Sweater.

While I was at Hot Fuss, I noticed they had out two lucky letter chairs. No group is required for either and they are completely FREE. One is for the ladies, but the other is for us menfolk. My letter came up while I was hunting down my hat and I was able to pick up this Tristan sweater in all the standard mesh sizes. It even includes a color change hud with three color choices. I’m showing you the fawn color, as that matched the hat, but it also included a really nice navy and a coal shades all in this traditional diamond print.

The cut, flow, and fit of the mesh shirt is excellent, and it would be well worth checking to see if your letter would come up. The chair was on a short timer, so your wait might not be too long.

The Necklace.

It never hurts to add a final touch to a classic outfit. I made a stop by etham to see what they had as their Menstuff Hunt prize and was pleased to discover a finely crafted Chainmail Cross as the gift. It is a FREE gift. Just find the iconic blue t-shirt and pay 0L and it is yours to add to your inventory.

Shhh! I’m hunting turkeys

Shhh! I'm hunting turkeys

 Hello, dear readers and welcome to another Saturday Feature!

As mentioned by Loki {HERE} there are a number of fun hunts running this month so be ready to spend your cool autumn days scampering across the grid in search for those odds and ends. Being an avid hunter myself, I geared right up and decided that, for starters, I was going to set my sights on one Jerky Turkey. Rumor has it that it’s been shedding feathers and leaving presents in several top quality stores.

While on the trail I stopped by Sevyn East to see if I could get my hands on that Turkey but alas, there was no sign of him. Lucky for me though it left a single orange feather as a clue and even luckier still there was a great present attached. Opening it up I discovered the Fall Dress comes in five standard mesh sizes (XS-XL) for classic avatars and sizes for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink bodies as well. There is an alpha layer included in the package that I found really helpful with the fitting. I simply adore the preppy style of this dress and the little bow on its waistline not only speaks to my girlish side but is also an appreciated well-made detail. Speaking of well-made, the Fall Dress boasts great textures with its tartan collar and skirt and the brown woolen knit of the top is perfect for the fall chill. The outfit comes with a cute Turkey shaped bag too with a pose or no pose option so you don’t have to worry about accessorizing. All you need to do to own the Fall Dress is to hunt out the orange feather located in the Sevyn East main store and buy it for 1L. The Jerky Turkey Hunt is ending at the end of the month so good luck to all those feather collectors out there!

How about some fancy and free footwear?

It’s probably really obvious by now that I love all types of boots and am an enthusiastic shoe collector. The words ‘shoe sale’ inspire so much joy and excitement that I was actually squealing when I discovered that Moda is not only having a big blowout of its Slink only shoes but was offering five free pairs as well. The Abierta Zippered boots that I’m wearing in the picture is one of those free pairs and comes with an extensive hud which enables you to customize the colors on almost every part of the shoe. It’s a shoe addicts dream and unfortunately, like all dreams, it will have to end. The sale is only running for two weeks and at the time of writing this a week or so has passed so hurry, hurry, hurry down.
Shh! I'm hunting turkeys

More goodies!

The size of my shoe collection is rivaled only by the number of skins that I own (only in SL does that sentence not sound very very creepy lol). All you skin fanatics out there should ready yourselves to teleport because 7 Deadly s{K}ins is offering the Dawn skin as an appreciation gift. It’s exactly as its exactly as its name suggests and is fresh-faced look with the subtle makeup that is a hallmark of the 7 Deadly s{K}ins design.  In the package, you will receive the Dawn classic skin in two tones (Marshmellow and Taupe) with cleavage/no cleavage options. There are also Slink hands and feet appliers and TMP Installers available for both tones. If you’re heading down be sure to grab a guy friend as that appreciation gift contains a skin for men as well! Not only is this appreciation gift available for free but you don’t have to be a member of the 7 Deadly s{K}ins group to be able to snap it up. Personally, I do recommend joining the group as a 400L gift card is being given away as a group gift this month, plus members enjoy a good number of perks. If you’re interested the 7 Deadly s{K}ins group costs 150L to join.

To keep that fall feel alive I opted to wear the Pumpkinette hair from Adoness. I don’t own many short hair styles but I fell in love with this wavy one right away. Plus, I’m always such a fan of hair adornments and you don’t get any more unique than seasonal fall fruits. The Pumpkinette hair is available as a group gift for members of the Adoness group but if you’re not currently enrolled never fear as you’ll be able to pick up this hairstyle for 1L. Adoness has a group join up fee of 25 L

As long as we’re on the subject of pumpkins, I’m wearing the aptly named Pumpkin eyes from Demicorn that are available as a free group gift from SaNaRae’s latest round. In the package, you will receive classic eyes as well as mesh ones with an alpha layer to go with. If you want to make that creepy look low key with Halloween being over and all then these eyes are the way to go. For more ‘everyday goth’ ideas check out Pru’s post {HERE} in which she coins the term and shows off more group gifts from SaNaRae.

And that wraps it up! Have a happy and safe weekend everyone! Till next time.
