Once Upon a Midnight Dreary

Nevermore

Hello Fabulouses!  Since Ripley and I found some fantastic hunt prizes lately, we decided to hit the trail once again.  This time, we set out along the Quoth the Raven Hunt path.  Over at Little 2 Large, we discovered this fabulous gown, and it only cost 1 little Linden dollar, plus a bit of searching time.  On the wall of the shop, you’ll find a hunt poster, which contains a helpful hint in case you get stuck.

With Many a Flirt and Flutter, In There Stepped a Stately Raven

The stately raven over at Little 2 Large actually brought *more* than just the gown in my picture.  In addition to a splendid frock, you’ll also receive male and female Dinkies outfits (Dinkies are these absolutely adorable mesh kitty avatars that you may have seen around the grid), a coordinating Nevermore men’s suit, and a petite Nevermore mini dress.  The additional prizes are no transfer, but if your man happens to come along with you on the hunt, for just 1 more Linden dollar, you can look all matchy-matchy.  As you can see from my picture, the gown starts out black at the bodice, but transitions into a soft gray texture, which reminded me of watercolors.  I really love the intricate black lace that adorns the sexy, full length slits in the skirt as well as the generous hemline.  The “sleeves” on the bodice resemble black feathers, and the package also included shoulder feathers that I opted not to wear.  For just a dollar, this fabulous hunt prize will have you all set up for formal fall parties, whether you have a classic or a mesh body avatar.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fitmesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layer)
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Physique

Ripley has taken to growling at that beguiling Raven, for that bird (to quote from Poe himself):

“…never flitting, still is sitting, STILL is sitting…

just above my chamber door…”

I’d better see if I can help the pupster escape unharmed from “The Raven.”  Until next time, happy hunting!

The Boo Bunny Cast a Spell on Me

My Favorite Color is October

Hello Fab Free!  Ripley and I are wrapping up a week of vacation, but before we head back to our normal routine, I wanted to share with you one of our discoveries from the Boo Bunny Hunt.  It cost just one Linden dollar and includes both my cropped top and curve hugging pants.  One thing I love about this find is the fact that it is covered with a printed design that fits right in with the witchcrafty-season we are in, but is subtle enough so this is an outfit you will be able to wear well past Halloween.

Magical Runes

Over at the Indigenous Designs shop, the pupster and I discovered the hunt object, a piece of Halloween candy, after just a short time spent searching.  After opening the package, I was delighted to discover details such as the unfastened buckle on the top, and the generous cut of the sleeves and lower cuffs on the pants.  One of my favorite hues to wear in RL is this deep shade of forest green, but it can often be too dark without additional pops of color.  The gold tones in the printed design on the Devil’s Runes Outfit provided just the right amount of contrast and seasonal flair.  Long pants, full length sleeves, and a half turtle neck collar ensure you’ll stay cozy on brisk autumn days, while the short hem of the top allows for a cheeky glimpse of skin.  With versions for classic as well as mesh avatars, there’s something in this hunt prize for everyone.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, and L (includes separate alpha layers for pants and top)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • EBody
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

Although we enjoyed our fall break vacation, Ripley and I missed you all, and are looking forward to sharing more Fabulous Finds with our favorite readers.  Until our next post, happy hunting!

Seasonal

Seasonal

So, Readers,  I didn’t make it back to the beach. But I did find a more ‘seasonal’ place to hang out for a bit. Nothing like shirking work in an Autumnal SIM.  Of course… it is haunted. But nothing’s perfect.

Making the Summit

I did run across a great Hunt while avoiding Juli. The Psycho Pumpkin Hunt from Gossip!Hunts is a 1L hunt with Female, Male and Unisex prizes running until October 27th. I picked up this shirt, ‘Summit’,  from Horr Men’s Wear as their Hunt prize. Just look for the black and orange frosted cupcake and it’s yours.

Sizes Included

  • Adam
  • Aesthetic
  • David
  • Gianni
  • Jake
  • SLink
  • Standard Mesh XS – XL
  • TMP

 

Maybe I can find a few more Hunts before Juli tracks me down.

Cheers,
Gabriel St.James

Taking Time Out for Some Leaf Peepin’

Time Out for Leaf Peeping

Hello Fabulouses!  One of my favorite parts of autumn (when I lived in a place that actually had four seasons) was going for a stroll in the woods with my pup by my side.  Although I still have a beloved canine, I have to get my leaf peeping fix on Second Life.  After seeing Aline’s posts here and here, Ripley and I decided to check out the Boo Bunny Hunt for ourselves, and came across this gorgeous cropped cowl neck top for just 1 Linden dollar.  

Time to Break Out the Sweaters

When I checked out the prize preview page, I really liked the picture of OMG Inc.’s Ladies Hooded Swarl, so I dusted off Rip’s tracking harness and we headed over to the shop to try our luck.  With the pupster’s talented nose (and the helpful hints page), we quickly discovered the hunt object, a piece of fall candy.  I was thrilled to notice when I opened the prize package that the designer had tucked a texture change HUD with 5 options for colors/patterns inside.  So, for just 1 tiny Linden dollar, it was like I got five different tops in one!  Although it’s not specifically designed for mesh avatars, I was able to get just the right fit by adjusting the alpha layer on my Maitreya Lara mesh body.  This poncho type sweater features a generous folded down cowl neck secured with two chunky buttons, a knitted ribbed texture, and an asymmetrical length which keeps your back toasty warm and allows a sexy glimpse of skin in the front.  I think you could also wear a tank underneath on really chilly days if you’d prefer.  Although I chose to pair the top with a rugged pair of leather pants for a casual look, I think it would also look fab when combined with a skirt.  The sky’s the limit!

Sizes Included:

  • XS
  • S
  • M
  • L
  • includes alpha layer for classic avatars

Ripley and I are gonna head back down the hunt path and see what else we can discover.  Yes, Pal, there will be some Ripley Snacks at the end of our journey!  Until my next post, happy hunting!

I Came to Slay

I Came to Slay

Oh hey guys!  It’s Friday, and I’m ready to chill out on this long Thanksgiving weekend.  Bring me all the delights of Fall!  I want all your turkey, mashed potatoes and pumpkin pie! Oh right, I’m trying to watch my figure so perhaps this little barrier of fingers that I have crossed across my lips will help… probably not… Anyway, I also want to be a little creepy, because well…why not.  Where all my witches at?!

Oh, Grumble

I hopped over to Grumble on the trail of the Boo! Bunny Hunt, and I did NOT grumble when I saw how cute their prize is!  I paid a very reasonable 1L, and got the adorable little skirt (complete with garters) and t-shirt which is just plain fun.  I am well pleased with this development! The clue to find the little candy in the black and orange wrapper is “Better get gassed up if I am going to track down this boo! bunny!  I would check the gas gacha station…”  Happy Hunting!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Ebody

Hush Up

Have you been to the Pose Fair yet?  There are so so so many free pose gifts to be had there.  Join their group for free, and you’ll be rolling in poses for ages.  I’m showing off the free gift from Kokoro Poses, though I’m not sure it will keep the pumpkin pie from making its way into my mouth this weekend….

Have a fab Friday!

Ramble On

Ramble On

Ah, the fresh winds and golden colours that are inherent to fall!  I love the crispness, the beauty and the deliciousness of it all!  It’s all about bundling up in a lovely sweater and going for a ramble out in nature.  I found the perfect sweater for just such a glorious fall day!

Boo Bunny

As part of the Boo! Bunny Hunt, JellyRoll have a special prize hidden at the store.  Just search for the little candy wrapped in orange and black, and buy for 1L.  Inside, you have this really awesome Autumn sweater!  It’s peppered with all the things that make October awesome, and I particularly love the fact that there are thumb holes added to it!  What a great detail!  The clue to find this lovely sweater at JellyRoll is “Time for a slice!”.  Good luck!

Hiding Out

Hiding Out

Dear Readers,

And why am I hiding out in a smoky bar instead of … socializing on the beach with bikini clad ladies?  Because someone told Juli I was slacking. **Looks pointedly at Izzy** But…

It’s not all bad.

I have my adult beverage of choice, some tobacco products and a smooth new shirt to enjoy them in.  This is the ‘Tygren Shirt’ from Sweet Intoxication and it’s the men’s gift in the 40 Hunt celebrating Crissy Sparrowtree’s fortieth birthday.  There are prizes for both men and women and unisex or home goods as well. Just look for the confetti filled balloons.

Sizes Included

  • Standard Mesh S M L
  • Adam
  • Aestheti
  • Geralt
  • Jake
  • SLink
  • TMP

 

Maybe Juli will get tired of stalking me and I can get back to the beach. *eye roll*

Cheers,
Gabriel St.James

Rock Your October 1st

Spooky

Hello Fabulouses!  So, I have to admit it……I went to the Rock Your Rack Event meaning to try my luck in the hunt taking place.  And, really, I did pick up a number of prizes there that I am itching to blog, BUT, when I entered the Pretty Kitty Design booth and spotted the Miyako Gacha display, I just knew I had to try to pick up a few of the pieces of this outfit.  Since today is October 1st and all, I decided to follow Aline’s example and step into the Halloween side of life.

She Was Unstoppable

On the first try, I was surprised to see the rare red headpiece pop up as an inventory offer.  I took that as a good sign, and from that point, I kept playing and collecting (and playing and collecting).  For just 50L a try, it was fairly budget friendly, and it actually didn’t take too long to get the whole outfit.  You can mix and match the pieces with other items from your wardrobe, so there’s no need to go all ham on the gacha machine like I did 😉 .  The Miyako headpiece features black horns rimmed with gold spirals, white pearl embellishments, and red stars dangling from silvery chains.  The curve-hugging top is trimmed with a pretty string bow at the neckline and has semi opaque ruffles.  While the black outer portion matches the horns, the patterned center section echos the crimson hue of the stars.  Also trimmed with string bows, the asymmetrical skirt has a short flirty hem in front and a longer back section.  The part of the outfit that took the longest to get were the shoes, but I have to say, they were worth the wait.  Sexy, thigh-high stockings, criss crossed with bright red lacing and a unique high heel platform (without the heel piece) provide just the right finishing touch.  Each piece in the outfit costs just 50 Linden dollars.

A Perfectly Spooky Pose

To set off the Miyako outfit, not just any pose would do.  Luckily for me, a group notice popped up on my screen advertising a 1L special over at ENII Poses.  I opened the texture, then excitedly teleported to the shop.  This was just what I had in mind!  Not only do you get the pose for a special price, the generous designer also included the backdrop you see in my photo and the ultra creepy skull in my hand.  Ripley took one look at the scary pumpkin backdrop and high tailed it over to Stan and begged for a walk to anywhere far, far away.  The poor guy!  I had to rez the backdrop and pose ball, so you will need a sim where you can set items out in order to use all the items included.  The poseball itself can be copied, so I also could have rezzed it, opened it up, and removed the pose to use with a different background.  It’s a great deal for just 1 little Linden dollar!

Well, I hear the jingle of the pupster’s collar tags as he and Stan are arriving back home, so I’d better whisk the scary orange monster up and tuck it safely away in the black hole that is my inventory.   Until next time, happy shopping!

A Little Lace and Moonlight

A little Lace and Moonlight

I admit it: I really like being girly every now and then. A little lace, a little frill… you can’t beat it. And when you find something for a great bargain …that makes it even better.

Noir Lace

I found this ultra feminine bra, high waisted panty and stockings set from Rouge Noir on the Marketplace for just 1 little Linden! Rouge Noir has offered this complete set for just a very limited time so don’t delay grabbing it up if you like it. While you’re there, take a look at all of the lovely lacey things they have to offer. The “Tori” set comes in a HUD with eleven layering options for full sets and separates. There is also a second ‘peek-a-boo’ bra included. Very sexy!

HUDs Included

  • Maitreya
  • Beleza
  • SLink

One quick note, you must be signed in and able to see ‘adult’ listed items to see all the pretty lingerie on Rouge Noir’s Marketplace page!

Lana is lovely

My soft new hair style is also a bargain in that it’s free. This is ‘Lana’ and it’s the free gift from Tameless at the Hair Fair. Lana comes with three palettes: Fantasy, Naturals and Fades as well as two ‘chest size’ versions. You only have about a week to peruse the Hair Fair, till Oct 7th,  so don’t wait.

Early Fall

Early Fall

I love the Fall season. The trees, the hot cider, the snuggly fashions. Maybe especially the snuggly clothes. Yokai at Limit8 is catering to me today with this super snuggly scarf. And it’s free!

Snuggly and Colorful

Yokai has set out this rainbow scarf as their free gift for the Limit8 event. There are quite a few venders with gifts out and many are 0L! Plus, check out the limited edition items only available at the event. But be warned… there are only a limited number of these exclusive item! Just join the Limit8 group for free and collect your gifts.

Redheads and Fall…

… go together perfectly!  My new ‘do is an awesome little gift from Sintiklia at the Hair Fair.  The Hair Fair is one event I know I look forward to all year. There are tons of venders and tons of new styles. I bet at least one will tickle your fancy. Many of the venders have free or almost free gifts set out for us. I particularly loved this style from Sintiklia. This is “Kaori” and it comes with two sets of bangs, two style options and a HUD with fifteen Ombre colors.  All this for one little Linden!
