Ghost_001

If you’re gearing up for Halloween and looking for the perfect costume… or maybe if you’re just looking to have some spooky fun… I have the perfect giftie for you! It will only cost you 1L and a little hunting time as part of the Bump in the Night Hunt! You hunt down the black crow, pay 1L (or if you don’t feel like hunting you can pay 25L at the hunt sign instead) and you get the prize!

This Scary Bedsheet Ghost avatar is the current hunt prize for the Bump in the Night Hunt at Epicine. It comes with the complete Avatar. It’s a little on the bright side in some windlight settings, but I found that it was perfect on the midnight setting and darker windlights, and most of the haunted sims are set to those.

Happy h(a)unting!

I Want Candy!

I Want Candy!

No Tricks, Just Treats…

Love and I decided to get a head start on the grab for candy this year. I don’t know why , but she always seems to get more treats in her bag than me. (I think she reaches in my bag when I’m not looking) This year I have a plan… be a depressed donkey and hope I get pity candy. We’ll see if that works. I can always point to the nail in my bottom holding my tail on for a little extra sympathy…

Just Like at The Wal-Mart…

We found our Halloween costumes on the Darling Home and Gift cart at The Wash Cart Sale. The TigGGR and E-Or Costumes are just two of the many costumes you will find for just 10L each. These costumes were designed to remind you of the “store bought” costumes of our youth. The wonderful thing about these costumes is because they are rigged mesh, they will work for men, women and teens. The costume accessories come with a built in resizer to get the right fit. Head on down to The Wash Cart Sale and get your costume today!

Seems Like Old Times…

Tenk Tank - MnM Avatars

Love reminded me that this is not the first time we teamed up for a Halloween costume post. As a TBT, I present to you a photo from 2011. Don’t we look tasty?

Be Careful What You Conjure, Witches!

Closetwitch
Hey there Fabulouses! You might want to get comfy and grab a coffee or something because I’m feeling a little wordy (and nerdy, but I am sure that comes through in post of my posts so I am sure you are plenty prepared for that already lol) and have news of fabulous free stuff and fun gachas to tell you about today!

Which witch are you?

Sn@tch recently released a new 7 Seas Fish For This prize called Which Witch that includes a 23 piece set that will set you up with plenty of clothing, appliers, shoes, jewelry, makeup and accessory pieces to mix and match.  I am wearing just five of the prizes in this set (booties, tights, skater skirt, floral top,  & collar), but this is just a taste of the whole thing!

You’ll need a casual 7 Seas Fishing Rod to gain access to the pond of prizes which will set you back 100L, but you can use this rod over and over again for future prizes and other ponds around the grid.  No bait is required.

Setting The Scene

Most of the items in my photograph are from the Mystic Room Décor Gacha Set that is currently featured at this round of the Cosmopolitan Sales Room event.  This machine is just 55L to play and you can score everything in my photo aside from the build, chandelier and casting circle.  Those three items are part of the Something Sinister instore gacha (50L per play) at The Hive.

Between these two gacha machines, I was ready to start conjuring, but let me tell you…  Be careful what you conjure because you never know what might rise up behind you!  Thank goodness I have him trapped in a circle.  Ever wonder what made Carson decide to come back after so long of an absence?  Now you know!  (maybe an embellished story…)

RiseupCarson
Speaking of Lucifer Carson…

His devilish look today was put together with a couple of really great finds.  His Bloody Shirt is available at The Wash Cart Sale by TIAR on sale for 10L and you can find his Pants, Wings and Shoes as a free group gift with a free group join at It’s Gau.

Now… what button do I push on this thing to send him back? 😛

Ghost Hunter

Ghost Hunter

A Hunting We Will Go

Hello fabulous readers! The weekend is almost here, and I am sooo glad!

SL Halloween season is in full-swing, so I decided to take a break from RL work to do a little hunting. But boy, I had no idea what I was getting myself into!

An Easy Find

Thankfully, my first find didn’t require much any hunting at all. I just popped into the store and grabbed it, and you can too! Just head over to S@BBiA and join the FREE in-world group to snap up this festive outfit.

The Halloween Gift includes the SleeveRibbon Dress, which is a one-size-fits-all mesh dress with an alpha layer. The pumpkin-orange booties are included and are sized for Maitreya and Slink medium/mid feet. They even come with a texture-change HUD to change the socks from purple and black to white and black or remove them completely.

Level of Difficulty = 11

And now for something completely different!

One of my favorite nail designers, Hello Dave, is holding a HUGE hunt on the Moochie sim. My hunting gear – the flashlight and cute bag – are both from the Halloween Hunt 2017 information kit. To get yours, head over to the Hello Dave main store and click the sign. You don’t even have to be a member of the in-world group to participate.

The information folder includes:

  • a flashlight
  • 8 different trick-or-treat bags
  • a map of Moochie so you won’t get lost like I did
  • a notecard list of all the hunt items you must find
  • a clickable HUD to help you keep track of your finds

I’ve done some difficult hunts in my day, but wow, this one is hard! There are 42 different items to find (yes, you read that right), and don’t even bother trying to cheat with an area search because the hunt items have all been renamed. Some are easy to find, and some are… well, let’s just say, after 4 days, I’m still looking for them. :-/

If you hang in there and find all the hunt items, you will receive some awesome prizes:

  1. 20 Exclusive Hello Dave nail palettes, compatible with Maitreya, Omega, Slink, Vista, Belleza, and Empire.
  2. 500L store credit to spend at Hello Dave.
  3. Your name, immortalized on the blood board of WINNERS for all to see.

Since I haven’t found all 42 hunt items yet, I can’t show you any of the prizes. But I wanted to make you aware of this hunt so you can get an early start. Trust me, you’ll need it!

One piece of advice: make sure you allow plenty of time for everything to completely rez. I found that each time I went back to the sim, new items showed up, and I was able to find more.

Hello Dave Halloween Hunt 2017

Even if you don’t finish the hunt, the Halloween-themed Moochie sim is a lot of fun to explore and enjoy (although, a bit laggy at times), with plenty of scenic spots for photos.

On a side note: Hello Dave is also participating in the “SL’s Top Haunted Places Hunt,” so be on the lookout for a little gift box that you just might stumble across without trying (I did!). You can grab an info notecard in the store, and there’s a hint-giver at the Halloween Hunt landing spot.

Happy (haunted) hunting!  😈

Serial Killer

Serial Killer

♫ When Carson said he didn’t like his teddy 
You knew he was a no good kid
When he threatened your life 
With a switchblade knife ♫

He was a low down cheap little punk…

Everyone knew he would end up in jail. It’s finally happened. They caught him with a bloody switchblade knife in his hand and dead bodies up and down the street. When asked why he committed such a gruesome act of violence, he could only reply “They didn’t like me! They never liked me!” 

Orange is the New Black

My new current (and for the foreseeable future) look is a FREE gift on the Masque Hunt. Find the Men’s Orange Jumpsuit at Fukin Cute. Also included in the gift is a sign with a HUD with four different reasons for your arrest (pose included), handcuffs, and a HUD to change your jumpsuit from orange to gray and you can even be blood splattered if you want! Don’t worry, Ladies! This gift comes in your sizes too! The Masque Hunt runs through October 31st.

♫ What a guy
Makes you cry
And I did ♫

Twisted Huntress

Wasteland_001

I’ve been able to bring you several roleplay posts lately… and it’s been a lot of fun to be able to do so. I have managed to put together an outfit today that is almost entirely free, expect for the pants and it would go great in a post apocalyptic setting, a sci-fi setting, or even a medieval fantasy setting.

It’s so twisted

The twisted hunt is on… with all its twisted cubes. It’s arguably one of the most difficult hunts on the grid, but it’s also one of the most rewarding with its excellent free gifts.

Roped Passions has a history of getting in on the action and this round is no different. The creator is giving away a main prize as well as 6 side prizes and will also have out a riot vendor as well this time around.

The main prize

You’ll want to hunt down this free Revenge Huntress Jacket as the main prize for the Twisted Hunt at Roped Passions! It’s a great piece for any sort of roleplay as I mentioned before and comes in crimson and black. It’s fully mesh and exposes the top of some cleavage without being overdone.

Shirt Sizes Available:

  • Standard mesh XS – L
  • TMP
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Boots too

One of the side hunt gifts at Roped Passions is the free pair of Vex Kreepers in Crimson Boots. They seem to be unrigged mesh and I found that by putting them on and then hiding my Maitreya feet they fit just perfectly. I think they would be adjustable to most mesh bodies. They are highly detailed and well made and as a side gift are free with a little extra hunting time.

Strike a Pose

I’d put together a roleplay outfit not too long ago in my post here when I visited the Imaginarium event. While I was there I also picked up a free pose from Dahila that you see in the picture above. It seemed to strike the perfect mood for my roleplay gear so I added it to my post. It would make a nice addition to a photographer’s inventory!

Wasteland_002

Details, details

Roped Passions has out 6 total free side gifts as part of the Twisted Hunt. I’m only showing you 3 in this post. The other 3 were just as amazing. You’ll want to find them all! Pictured above is the free Crimson Unisex Crown as well as the free Twisted Victorian Hunters Mask, each of which is a side gift that you can get for free by hunting for that twisted cube around the Roped Passions main-store.

If you hunt some more, you’ll also find a Gothic alter (not shown), a Snarky Cube (not shown), and Gothic Mushrooms (not shown). All these prizes are fantastic and definitely worth the hunt!

Wine Country and a Smoke

Grapes and a smoke_001

Time to use your imagination a moment… I have brought you another roleplay post, courtesy of the Gimme Gacha group which has been incredibly generous with the group gifts at their events lately. This month if you visit the Imaginarium Gacha event with your Gimme Gacha group tag on, you can pick up group gifts from around the event and I am pleased to show off a roleplay look I put together with a few of the free gifts!

Entice me…

I’m used to Entice providing quality outfits, but I think this is the first time I have seen them put out a roleplay gift. I was thrilled with this “Fairy Nightsongs” gift that they had set out for free near their gacha machine. It comes in XXS – L Fitmesh, Maitreya, and Slink Hourglass & Physique and has lots of great details, plus I love that it had the mid-drift showing so that I could show off another gift I found that I really liked…

Blowing in the wind…

Notice my belly tattoo? This tattoo by Fallen Gods (yes they gave another Gimme Gacha free tattoo gift! 😀 is called windy and it is so pretty! It delicately surrounds your belly button and if you look close their is a dandelion in seeded form blowing in the wind. You’ll get system layers and Omega appliers, and the tattoo comes in 3 colors: Black, Gold, and Turquois.

Speaking of wind…

What do you think of my windblown hairstyle? Personally I love it! And it’s the free gift from Love! It’s called Self Entitled and perhaps I felt a little self entitled as I put on the flowing locks. You’re going to get a full free fatpack of hair with this gift by wearing your Gimme Gacha group tag so picking this one up is well worth it!

Have a pipe and some wine…

I took a moment for some special treats from two different vendors. One was Moon_sha who was giving out these Barrels Grapes & Sacs as their group gift. The whole piece comes together as one set and all together is only 1 prim. That’s hard to beat! And it’s free! It makes a great little addition for roleplay furniture (did I mention it’s free?).

Since I was near the makings of wine country, I decided to have a smoke and I fell in love with the gift from Akume Drops — this Japanese Pipe. It is highly detailed an includes a smoking animation (that works great with animation over-rides) as well as a reasonable amount of smoke. The particles are not overdone but are just right to look realistic. Both of these gifts are really nice touches and excellent free roleplay props.

Lots of other things…

There were MANY other gifts at the Imaginarium event. Be sure to stop by and get them all!

Sci-Fi and Sunglasses

Sci Fi... and Boots

I’m feeling a little sci-fi and fantasy all at the same time today… and the elements of the gifts I picked out could be used for different genres of everyday wear or roleplay gear depending upon how you paired them with outfits or other details (I think that’s why I love these gifts so much).

The Heart Shaped Sunglasses Hunt started today and I think there are some really fabulous gifts to be had. I’m showing off two of them in this post alone, and hope to show off a few more that I have my eye on.

Thigh High

These Thigh High boots by Have Unequal immediately caught my attention and won my approval and I was thrilled when I tried them on. They say “wool” but to me they look leather with a “wool” sock sort of sticking out the top. They will only cost you 5L and a little hunting time at the Have Unequal main-store and when you unpack the box you’ll find boots to fit Maitreya, Slink Hourglass, and Slink Physique mesh bodies. These boots would be slick for some Sci-fi roleplay or other types of RP… or just for wearing and not roleplaying 😉

Speaking of Hearts

Since I was on the heart trail, I also picked up the 5L prize from Kotte, which happens to be this great pair of heart shaped sunglasses in “sea”. They come with a hud that allows you to change the metal detailing on the glasses to either silver or gold. If you click on the flickr picture and zoom in, you can see that their is a little Gothic cross on the sides of the glasses.

A touch of fantasy

While I was at Kotte I accidentally scrolled my mouse and cammed inside another store and found my camera locked onto a group gift at a new-to-me store called {Ghoul}. Immediately I knew I had to have the Dragonglass Back Gems! They emit a soft purple light and would be great for fantasy, medieval, or sci-fi roleplay… or just for fun. The group is 50L to join, and there was another group gift beside the back gems, a photo body glow. The gems come in sizes to fit several mesh bodies, including a male mesh body!

Back Gem Sizes Available:

  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Isis & Freya
  • Belleza – Jake
