A little bit of Hunting in Africa, my camera is the perfect shot!

 

Well well…It’s another beautiful Thursday! Hope you all have had a good week since I was last here. I’ve been having to endure renovations at my workplace, and it’s been a little rough. I am so glad I have SL to escape to once I get home. This week, with the help of the African Summer Hunt, I’ve escaped to a whole other continent, Africa! For LM’s to all participating stores, hunt previews, and hints, here’s the link to the hunt website. All hunt prizes are free. So, let me show you a few fun things I picked up while working on this fairly easy hunt.

My lovely maxi skirt, ruffled top and head wrap are all part of the hunt gift you will find over at Cheeky Parrot Boutique. I just love the store name. For all you male FabFree readers, there is also a men’s gift included. All three pieces of the Nyoka Ladies set are mesh, and excluding the head wrap, which comes in 3 sizes, they come in all the standard sizes. I’ve included a shot with a closer look at my top and the head wrap. The colours and patterns on these pieces really do scream African Summer. I love it!

The other hunt item I wanted to show off is from BoWillow. My super-cute sunglasses are 1 of 3 pairs you will get when you find the hunt item in store. I happen to be wearing the giraffe pattern, but you also get a zebra pair, and a leopard pair. How much fun is that little bow! While BoWillow mainly focuses on children’s clothing, these sunglasses are mod, and also have a sizing script, so no matter your avie size, you can wear them. BTW, special mention, if you have space to keep it out, the box these glasses come in,  is too adorable. You’ll know what I mean when you unpack your items :)

The last addition to my African look, is not actually from the hunt. Although I did kind-of hunt for it, on one of my many Marketplace hunts. What did I find, my pretty henna body tattoo. This is a Marketplace L$1 promo offered from AV Ink Tattoo’s, here’s the link. You get a torso tattoo, that I am wearing, as well as a set of hand tattoo’s, which I am not wearing. Both tat’s are system layers, and they really are just delicately simple and pretty. I really wanted something that would match the feeling of my outfit, without going for the typical tribal tat’s, and I thought this fit the bill. Do not be surprised if you see this tattoo showing up in my other posts.

OK, while I have stayed pretty quite while posing, I think the lions finally noticed me. So I better be heading out. I hope you enjoyed my trip to Africa with me. Who knows where I’ll end up next. Until next time, my lovelies, TTFN!!

Something Steam(Punk)y!

Something Steam(punk)y

I’d never miss a chance to try out a new character, cosplay, or fantasy! Though I admit, I’ve never done steampunk. So when I saw this amazing hat at the NSP Florals Cart at the Wash Sale (and only 10L — Woot!), I was all a twitter! It was a chance to put together a steam punk look with a great accessory from top quality designer and once I had the top hat on, I was thrilled!

I love the combination of rich fabrics, florals, and metal feathers! Then it was off to adventuring at a steampunk sim! (If you have time, check out New Babbage — I linked you below… very cool place!)

But don’t be mistaken! The NSP Floral Cart at the Wash Sale is not just steampunk! Oh no! Versatility is the name of the game! This creative creator is offering up several gorgeous vintage hats (with the hair included!) as well as beautiful floral accessories that could easily finish off a stunning modern gown or top off a Gothic vampire’s ebony tresses.

The possibilities are endless and at only 10L per purchase, you won’t want to pass any of these beauties up!

Back In Black!

82615 post

Here I am again, fresh from a one-week vacation. I am sporting the official color of men’s clothing on Second Life, so you know I am bringing my “A” game. “Blog or die!” that’s my motto. I would have it tattooed on my arm, but if I did, somewhere out there is a person with a name like Alfred J. Blog who would do something publicly embarrassing. Then I would have to pay again to get the tat removed. I blog hard, but I am also very practical. Oh, and cheap, too.

First up on my list of fantastic finds is this jacket from REDPANDA. The Leather Jacket With Shirt is currently offered as a very generous FREE group gift. It is a one piece mesh combo of the jacket and the simple T-shirt, a classic look for a male avy if there ever was one. My favorite color to wear it in is black, of course. However, REDPANDA includes a hud that gives you five additional color choices, along with an additional eight colors for the T-shirt. You can also forgo the Tee entirely by choosing “No Shirt” on the hud. Four sizes and a clearly-grained leather texture with excellent details, such as visible stitching and metallic zipper teeth, make this a FREE group gift worth picking up!

So, newly back from the glorious sunshine, I figured it was time for me to go wild, and what better item to go wild in than these pants from Deadly Mouse? Their 1L Fashion Play Hunt For Him gift is a great outfit called Over Limit. It includes these crazy pants, subdued in color while the pattern is bursting with energy and life! They come in five sizes. Plus, this hunt gift also includes a great mesh hoodie in slate blue with excellent folds making it look very soft. Honestly if you like realistic looking clothes, and you want a solid blue hoodie, you are going to love the one that is in this box! I am going to give you a hint to help you find the hunt prize, which I rarely do, because I really want as many of you as possible to find this: “This hunt object is so small, it might drive you INSANE!” The hunt object is a small blue and black rectangle, and it’s easy. I promise.

I don’t wear jewelry often, so when I find something I have to like it immensely in order to consider posting it. Such is the case for the necklace I am wearing today. The Trophy Necklace from IT! (Indulge Temptation!) definitely fulfills that criterion and more. The Trophy Necklace comes with a hud giving you seven choices for the colors of the beads and it is materials enabled. This 1L Fashion Play Hunt For Him gift is the perfect accessory for the “Wild thing” mood I am in today! Pick this up to go with some casual and beachwear outfits. It’s a great find.

I am wearing another fantastic FREE skin gift from the Midnight Mania Board at Tellaq. I have mentioned them before since they are one of the best sources for men’s skins on the grid (also one of the most generous). Join the FREE group at the front of the main store and run to the back of the store to tap that MM board. Where else can you get a skin this good, and in sixteen facial hair variations with bonus goodies thrown in FOR FREE? Seriously, if you are a guy on SL, make this a regular stop, and ladies, please give it a tap now and then to help us guys out. The target is high, usually requiring 500 slaps, but the board does close regularly and the gifts are outstanding.

While you are checking out that close up of the devilishly handsome guy in the picture above, take a good look at his eyes. These are the current FREE Group Gift eyes from IKON, one of my favorite eye merchants on the grid. Just yesterday Love posted them here, but they look just as great on male avies too. These IKON Unisex Triumph Eyes in Armor have a combination of brown and tan tones in them and if you click my pic twice, you should be able to zoom in to see them in spectacular detail. The IKON group is FREE to join and I heartily encourage you to do so.

Lastly, for what seems to be a week jam-packed with great gifts and prizes to grab, Alli&Ali Designs are participating in the Fashion Play For Him Hunt as well. Their FREE gift is the stylish Roman Hair that I am wearing. It is offered in eleven colors and has an option for streaks in the hair to make it more versatile. Depending on your skin, you might want to find a hairbase from your inventory to wear with it to give it a more finished look like I did. The box does not include one, and it is not required as it looks great without one.

That’s it for this marathon post! You can tell I missed all of you since I had this many items saved up to share. We are nearing the end of the month, so if you see something you might want, go get it as soon as possible. The Fashion Play For Men Hunt ends August 31st. Until next time everyone, take care and see you on the grid!—–WHC Riler

Boho Basics

Snapshot_001Hey there Fabulouse Readers :) I was visiting the latest round of Shiny Shabby the other day and came across this super fun Boho Daily Basics Set by Luas.  It’s just 50L per  play, and in the set there are several different styles of skirts and matching tops as well as the rare collar and also a bag (which I wasn’t lucky enough to score, but the event isn’t over yet!).  My favourite piece of the gacha set is actually the common floral skirt.  It’s so vibrantly coloured and full!
Luas Daily Basics GachaThe furnishings in my photo above are also available at 50L per play – but you’ll find the Boho Summer Gacha Set located at the Luas mainstore.

I haven’t come to you completely without freebie news!!  Don’t worry – I got your back.. or your eyes or something!  These very sultry IKON Triumph Eyes in the colour of Armor are the latest free group gift!  Just activate your free inworld group tag and you’ll be able to pick up both the prim and mesh versions.

End of Summer

Coming soon to FabFree

Summer is winding down and I’m just not ready to let go of my cute summery wardrobe, especially now that I’ve added this adorable outfit from Daisy’s Closet.  It is available right now as a group gift (free to join) and includes the sweet tank top with eyelet lace trim and cut off black denim shorts.  If you are addicted to applier clothing like I am, you will be happy to find not only system layers, but Slink, Maitreya, and Omega appliers as well.  The outfit is very detailed and blends sweet and sexy perfectly.

Coming soon to FabFree

The White Watch from Swallow makes the perfect, simple accessory for this outfit.  It is a group gift, and the group costs $15 L to join, but there are so many great gifts out, making the fee more than worth it in my opinion.  Among the group gift is a multi pack of mesh eyes.  Moira is shown here wearing tone 1.

Coming Soon to FabFree

I am in love with these sweet, and free, pineapple print flats from G Field.  They are sized for both Slink and Maitreya flat feet, and you can also find a mid foot version in store!

I hope you all have a wonderful end of summer!

Love,

Moi

Just Another Fantasy

Snapshot_002 I have so much fun with the event rounds of The Fantasy Gacha that I have been, and been back several times now.  This particular trip I played the Dead Dollz gacha machine which is 50L per play,   and has these very sexy Bissmillah Tops and matching skirts in a few different colours with the white and black pieces being the rare items.

These items fit the Maitreya mesh body specifically and you are instructed to try a demo before you play just to be sure they fit your shape… but they fit me great!  I was a little worried the hip cut-outs wouldn’t be quite right, but they are cut low in all the right places and are rigged very well for movement too.

My Aadi Hair is by Damselfly and is also available at The Fantasy Gacha for 75L per play.  I have added the Bamse Butterfly Headband to this style (also available at TFG, playing at 50L per try).

Thanks so much to Fab Reader Scout for passing me these super cute dragons after seeing I had lost my others in a previous post. lol  I now have no shortage of baby dragons!

The Draw to Enchantment

“Do you hear the call of the waves below?
Or the way the fishes move in the flow?
To Sea! To Sea! The Seagulls do caw.
From somewhere she answers…
She answers their call.
Can you see the foam layered on sand?
Or feel the way it creeps up your hand?
Her curls shine…Shine bright in the sun.
She smiles and dances…
She dances for fun.
She’s ready to share her treasure with you.
Though you’ll need to find it.
Before the others do.”
[Poem courtesy of the Enchantment Hunt]

The Draw of Enchantment [1]

I’ll be honest… I’m not one for hunts. (I’m one of those people who has a terrible time finding where I last left my glasses in real life, let alone finding a hunt item in SL!) But this Hunt drew me in the minute I saw the amazing line up of designers and the gorgeous gifts, and I knew I had to share it with you! Especially as every one of these hunt gifts are FREE. Just find the little purple shell, click it, and viola! You’ve found your prize!

The theme of the Enchantment Hunt is little mermaid. I found you a simply amazing mesh tail for only 50L at The Muses that works great with the mesh Maitreya Lara body (which is what I have) as well as system bodies (you can see the tail in the picture above.) The Muses sells their tail in two styles — Ianthe or Ondine and you can get either style in an amazing array of colors from either their Marketplace store or their in-world store. I admit to grabbing mine from the Marketplace simply for the convenience.

The shot above is also a great view of half of the gift you’ll find if you stop by .aisling. as you swim through this great hunt. Their gift composed of two parts: a pose and a prop. The picture above gives you a clear shot of the pose… the siren or mermaid reaching out to draw in her prey… the picture below gives you a good picture of the second half of .aisling’s. gift — a stunning dagger with an intricately detailed hilt for you to hold.

The Draw of Enchantment [2]

The Hunt includes 23 amazing stops — far too many for me to showcase in one post. But I tried to hit several to give you an idea of just how amazing these gifts really are. This skin by Lumae called Adore – Eione // Anemone (notice the amazing details with the scales on the skin?!) came with every applier imaginable, as well as different color brow options and was also part of the Hunt.

My tiara is an Enchantment Hunt gift courtesy of PurpleMoon Creations and when I stumbled upon it, I fell in love — not just with the detailing and style but with the thoughtfulness of the creator who added a color-change hud! There are 12 gem color options and 5 metal options!

My mesh pearls and sexy star seashell modesty breast covers are an Enchantment Hunt gift from [Glitzz] and just as generous as the other gifts as they included an easy to use resize script that made them easy to fit to my avatar’s shape. I loved that I did not have to modify my avatar to fit these items, but instead I could modify these items to fit my avatar.

Last but not least — it’s not a hunt item, but I found a fabulous gift from you from Alice Project! They have put out a promo on the marketplace as a FREE gift for customers called Summertime Sadness in a special set of Mini Medley colors. I chose this lovely pastel pink to complete my look, but there were lots of great colors on the hud. And as always, this mesh style from Alice project is just breathtaking!
