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!

Witches Brew

Witches Brew

I should have listened to Love’s advice in her post {HERE}.  “Be careful what you conjure, witches,” she said.  I thought I read the spell correctly.  I really did………but somehow, I turned my pal Ripley into his arch-enemy…….a cat!  See him perched up there on my shoulder?  See that look on his face?  He is NOT happy…….not one little bit!  I am hoping that one of our Fabulous Readers can point me to the antidote.   Either that, or perhaps Love can help me out…

It All Started At The Cart Wash

As the pupster and I unpacked our Cart Wash boxes, I began with this adorable silver Cobwebbed Mini Dress from MishMash Fusion, which is a one of 11 shades in the MishMash Fusion gacha machine.  This strapless frock features an all-over spiderweb print, which is adorned with a black ruffled trim and waistband.  As soon as I put it on, I fell in love with the loose-fitting skirt, which has plenty of extra fabric for it to swish with each step.  The package contains standard fitted mesh as well as versions for mesh bodies, so I’m sure you will find the perfect fit for your avatar.   At only 20L per play, you can easily stock up on a variety of colors.

What’s Included:

  • Standard Fitted mesh
  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Ebody
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Physique

Along Came a Spider

With the web pattern on my new dress, I couldn’t resist an arachnid-style necklace.  For just 1L on the Marketplace, I scooped up this Spider Necklace for Woman from La Forgia Jewels.  This bauble features onyx, moonstone and steel beads, and a spider pendant in the center.  I thought it complemented my new frock well, and the price was just right!

I Needed Just One More Item…

The only thing missing was a witch hat (not a witch CAT, but a witch HAT).  I set up my cauldron, pulled out all the ingredients, and began the incantation…  Then, it happened; just when I chanted the words, my nose twitched and I sneezed a great sneeze!  A green mist floated up from the brew, and when it cleared, instead of a HAT, I had a very annoyed former-German-Shepherd-now-CAT glaring at me.  “I-I-I-I’ll make it right, Buddy.  I promise!” I stammered.

So, you see my dilemma, Fabulouses.  I picked up a terrific mini dress and necklace for a grand total of just 21L, but I also made a HUGE mistake in my magic spell.  If anyone knows the antidote, Ripley and I will sure appreciate your assistance.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

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? 😛

Instant Hair Crush

Exile1L
Like Falling Autumn Leaves

You know what else falls this Autumn?  The price on the brand new Bento Instant Crush Hairstyle by Exile in their marketplace store – all the way down to 1L!  Their usual “all or nothing pack” price is 1250, so this is a really sweet savings.  This long pulled back hairstyle with side swept bangs includes a bento version as well as ALL the colour pack HUDS!

To Swish Or Not To Swish

The bento version is actually a lot of fun to watch swishing and moving around with my avatar, although if you prefer no movement, the regular hair is included as well.

What’s Lurking in My Bedroom?!

The Creeps_001

I’m just relaxing on my new furniture courtesy of StoraxTree and the Horror Hunt. At first glance, this 1L prize is just an innocent 4 prim bedroom set (all one piece when you set it down and with lots of great details)… but it has five  poses total, four of which are rather creepy (see below!) This bedroom set will make a neat (temporary?) Halloween addition to your home if you are into decorating and for just 1L

The Creeps_002

More Hunting

I also hunted down this Gothika Red Straps Dress at Moonstar. I really love the color and detailing and it’s a perfect fit. It comes in all the sizes you could need and all you’ll need to spend is a little time hunting as part of the Horror Romantic Hunt and 1 little Linden!

Sizes Available:

  • Fitmesh XS – L
  • TMP
  • eBody
  • Ocacin
  • Tonic – Fine & Curvy
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

The Creeps_003

New Heels

My last hunt find was also 1L and part of the Horror Romantic Hunt. I fell in love with these Italian Nights heels from Loordes of London. They fit Slink high feet and are a dream and match the dress from Moonstar perfectly. Pick these up for a little hunting time (they are super easy to find) and 1L!

Happy H(a)unting!

Introducing…..Ms. Witch

Ms. Witch

I am not a witch, I am the witch,

and to some, I am Ms. Witch!

 

Ripley and I dusted off his tracking harness tonight, and hit the trail on the All Hallows Eve Hunt.  As soon as we landed at the Moonlite Cat Creations store, the pupster’s nose began to twitch and we were off!  Quick as a wink, he practically dragged me upstairs, then stood over a low table and began………..drooling all over a latticed apple pie cooling in the October air!  Raising my eyebrows, I admonished my canine pal, “No, Buddy, I said to find the PRIZE, not the PIES!”  After one hopeful glance in my direction, which was quickly followed by a negative shake of my head, he sighed, then once again sniffed around.  Soon enough, he located the hunt object, a small pumpkin, which I purchased for just 1 little Linden dollar, then we teleported home to open the package.

The Creation of Ms. Witch

Nestled inside the prize box was this gorgeous Wiccan gown, black shawl, and witch hat.  Ooohing and awwwing, I slipped into the formal frock, and wrapped the shawl around my shoulders.  My new dress features a strapless bodice, which nips in close to emphasize the waist, then drapes gracefully into a multi-paneled, floor length skirt.  The center section glitters in the light, and the darker accent fabric is adorned with a swirling pattern.  A coordinating witch hat in two sizes adds the finishing touch, and even boasts a dangling spider for a spooky effect, which (I’ll be honest) would kind of freak me out in RL (OK, OK, it would definitely freak me out in RL), but in SL was just the perfect embellishment.  When I donned this headgear, Ms. Witch was officially born.  Although the prize did not include an alpha layer, I was able to use my Maitreya Lara HUD to obtain a lovely fit.

Sizes Included:

  • XS
  • S
  • M
  • L
  • XL

Those Deep Chocolate Eyes…

As I twirled and modeled our discovery in front of Ripley, he simply stared at me with his beautiful eyes, and then whimpered, just a little.  I wonder if the owner of that pie would notice a teensy slice missing.  After all, Pup did work very hard to locate my gift….  What do you think, Fabulous Readers?

Waiting for Sailors

Waiting for News_001

The ships will all be coming in this week and I’m waiting for a special sailor to make it back from their tour. Thanks to things like mobile towers and face-time I don’t have to miss my sailor friends completely, but seeing them in person is a different thing entirely! But once upon a time, reunions with loved ones who were out at sea for months at at time with little communication were a different thing indeed! These special vintage gifts from The Vintage Hunt, and a trip to the 1920’s New York sim reminded me of that!

Standard Vintage Fair

Be sure to stop by Loordes of London right now and get in on some of the amazing hunts that this shop is participating in. You won’t regret it. I picked up this 1L dress called the Victorian Standard as part of The Vintage Hunt. Just hunt down the little yellow umbrella and this gorgeous mesh dress is yours. It comes in classic mesh sizes XXS – L and includes an alpha if you need it. It’s all one piece, but is highly detailed with excellent texturing. I paired it with black boots for a classic feel.

Is the news in yet?

I picked up another great Vintage Hunt gift from Ashmoot. For just 1L you get two gifts at Ashmoot… these vintage sunglasses (they are resizable) and the vintage radio you see in my hand (I’m anxiously awaiting news of the returning sailors!). The radio gift includes two radios. You’ll get a no-prose prop radio that you can hold using a pose of  your own OR even rezz out in your home because its only 1 prim! PLUS you’ll get a radio that has a pose that will work with your animation override. I used the no-pose radio and added it to my own pose in the picture above.

Happy Hunting! And here is to all those with friends, family, and loved ones who are sailors!

A Treep To The Darkside

Xclusiveanimationshorrorhunt
Hey there FabFree!  You won’t believe what happened last night.  I can hardly believe it myself!

It went something like this…

He and I were out for our routine after dinner stroll through the park, my hand in his – like it always is.  The air was crisp and cool enough to pink our cheeks and the leaves were crunching below our feet while we talked about the days events.  We got to our half way point of the loop at the big old oak tree at precisely 7:00pm, laughing about how things are becoming a bit too routine.  Of course this was a comfortable routine and we were both happy with it.

I looked up at him smiling and his eyes got big like saucers and his face went straight.  With his best Dracula impression he said to me “You vant to take a treep to the darkside?”.  Of course I rolled my eyes and laughed at his dorky impression, but he pulled my hand laughing evilly “Mooa ha ha ha ha haaaa” as he swiftly darted right off of our normal path, and we were in the trees before I could say “CARSON CAIBEN!”.  I had never been this way before, but he seemed to know where he was going…

The sun was long gone by now

A light fog blanketed the ground.  The almost full moon offered just enough light for me to see the gravestones past the old rickety gate he was now inviting me to enter through.  “Pfft…  we shouldn’t be here!” I said “and also.. what has gotten into you?”.  He smirked with an I dare you face and motioned for me to walk through the gate saying “ladies first”.  I went through that gate of course just to prove I wasn’t scared (even though I was lol).  He followed behind me, closing the gate with a clang.  He led me up a path to an open coffin.  I looked at the coffin with confusion, and then I looked at him…  AND HIS FANGS.  It’s true everyone….  Carson is a vampire.

Get The WHOLE Graveyard Scene for 1L!

Hunt down the Horror Hunt (Blood splatter) icon at X-Clusives Animations and buy it for 1L and you’ll have this entire animated scene including everything you see here (except Carson and I). The fog mists, the bats, orbs and ghosts fly and the coffin is VERY animated with cuddles to the x-rated variety.   It has a land impact of 66 prims and would be great for photography, or a secret spooky skybox :).

Caught in Her Web

Spiderweb

Welcome to my Web…

What started out as planning just a quick meal out, turned into formal night out on the town, right down to me wearing a tux and a bow tie. How does she spin her web and get me to agree to these things?

Our matching gown and tuxedo comes from Kat’s Clothing Boutique as part of the Horror Hunt.  The Spiderweb Gown comes in Fitmesh XS-XL sizes with an alpha layer as well as mesh body specific sizes for Belleza, Maitreya, Slink, Tonic, Ebody & TMP. The Spiderweb Tuxedo comes in mesh sizes XS-XL. This is the perfect couples holiday costume without the “costume”. All items on this hunt are just 1L each.The Horror Hunt runs through November 3rd.

Harvest Home

Harvest Home

Taking in the crops…

It’s that time of year again where the local farmers are out in the fields picking corn and cutting beans (Yes, you have to say that correctly around here or you get a funny look). Pumpkin picking and apple orchards are also a “thing”.  I do love this time of year, but dread the oncoming winter that some parts of the continent are already experiencing.

Work Wear…

I found my farm attire at Waffles as part of the Vintage Hunt, now taking place. The Retro Blue Shirt and Pants Combo with Braces will give you that farm fresh look and the price was right at just 1L, just like all the gifts on the hunt. I need to get back to work as we are still making hay while the sun shines…
