Apocalypse Now

One of the things that I love most about Second Life is the way you can go from a vintage train station to a post apocalyptic wasteland in the same day. I took a stroll around the latest Fantasy Collective and I am loving the theme : Industrial! Everything modern and mechanical and steampunk perfect!

GACHA_001

This is the Gacha from Sweet Lies this round. There are 6 commons and one rare backpack. Just the thing for wandering the wastes. The face mask, skirt and top each come in either the gray-silver I’m wearing or a rusty tan color.  And every play is only 50L a pull. The back pack is the rare pull. I’m not going to show you the back of the skirt because it’s… shall we say… cheeky.

GACHA_002

Sexy, daring and ready for either a fantasy or urban noir role play. The Fantasy Collective runs until March 13 so don’t delay.

Oh… and that guy passed out over there in the second pic …. I had nothing to do with that…..

Today’s Top 10 Hunts

HUNT SL Love Lust Faith Obsessive Dreams HuntGood morning fabulous fans! Here’s a listing of what’s hot in the hunt world today: Tuesday, February 24.

It’s got quite the long name… the Love Lust Faith Obsessive + Dreams Hunt is occupying the top spot in our list this week. It’s a L$1 hunt and  you’ll be looking for a purple heart. I’ll have to check in on this hunt too. It’s on my list of hunts to do.

Get wild with the Find Your Wild Side Hunt, which is at #2. This hunt only has 16 stops so you can probably bust it out in an hour or so. Prize pics are available on the hunt’s web site.

Then… check out the rest of the hunts going on right now. There is a theme for nearly everyone to enjoy.

Just a reminder, that these are the 10 most popular viewed hunts over the past 48 hours or so. We don’t know how many people actually start (or finish) any given hunt and this ranking can (and probably will) change in a few hours.

See you out on the hunt!

Not All Fairies Have Wings

Cupid

This lovely skin from Pixy Stix brings a whole new idea to the phrase “Pretty in Pink”! Not only is the skin very pretty, it’s a nice vibrant shade of pink, and the lips are gorgeous. This skin also includes and equally dramatic purple version. The skins are a current group from Pixy Stix and they come with just about every applier you could imagine. The Pixy Stix group is currently FREE to join, so no excuses for missing out on this one!

If you’re gonna go pink, why not go all the way! In addition to my pretty new skin from Pixy Stix I finally grabbed the Valentine gift hair from Little Bones. This long, wavy, half-up style is the current group gift at Little Bones. The style includes a color change hud with a variety of pink and red fades to change things up a little. Currently the Little Bones group is $100 lindens to join.

Considering Pink was the theme for the moment I was super excited when I managed to snag this cute flower wreath headband from the Plastik gacha machine at the Thrift Shop. These pretty little headbands are just $70 lindens per play. I also happened across the perfect dainty pink dress by OrsiniRed at the Cosmopolitan Sales Room for just $59 lindens. Run and get it while it’s available at such an awesome price! There are also other colors for sale.

Last but not at all least, this super cute toadstool Pru is posing on is available for just $50 lindens per play at the Fantasy Gacha Carnival. The toadstools are by Roawenwood and come in several colors, commons with one pose each, rares have seven poses. There are also cute fairy rings to be had!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

The Demoness

Demoness

Hello there Fab Free’rs! I’m feelin’ a little saucy, and letting the horns, the wings, and the tail come out! I’ve spent a lot of my free time in role-play, in many forums over the years. The truth about where Pru comes from is that she was my first ever role play character years and years ago. She’s always been a little part of me. I partially continued that version of Pru in SL role play as well. She was a demoness then, and part of her always will be. Now she’s really just an extension of my own personality. So personally, I do love this look, it’s fun, it’s sassy, and a little bit naughty. For me it’s also a lot nostalgic.

While at the Thrift Shop, of course I had to play some gacha. Let me tell you, I’m not at all disappointed. First, these awesome red bat wings are a gacha prize from PMS. They are just $50 lindens per play at the Thrift Shop and come in several colors. They include a resize script. I also grabbed this super cute very cheeky necklace from Biscuit. This 3-tier necklace reads “Hussy” in a heart shaped charm. Ask me why, I’ll never have an answer, but I love it. It makes me laugh. The necklace comes in several versions all equally cute and cheeky at $70 lindens per play.

If ever you were looking for cute accessories for your feet, the current round of the Thrift Shop gachas has some. I purposefully did not wear shoes, because I didn’t want to distract from how cute my feet looked. hahaha These cute foot chains are from ZOZ, I think they are sweet and feminine and would look great with some strappy shoes for a little something extra. These sweet little “Love ties” are just $45 lindens per play and come in several versions. Next, toe rings from M&M Incorporated. I really like these simple but pretty bands with the little stone for some added color. They are just $50 lindens per play, and I couldn’t pass them up.

Feeling good about my gacha fun, I also came across a pretty little freebie from 7Deadly Skins. This vampy red lipstick is not just pretty, it’s also FREE at the 7Deadly Skins booth at the Thrift Shop. I think it really adds to the over-all look. All the Thrift Shop loveliness aside, I’m sure you’ve noticed this pretty lace top Pru has on.

This top is the Boob Job Hunt gift from SexZ, and for just $2 lindens, it is too pretty to not have. The top can be worn as just a system layer, however it also comes with an Omega hud. The top is semi sheer, however I think the pretty lace-like pattern obscures things enough to keep it classy.

Here are the details, I hope you love it, Enjoy!

Living in a fantasy…

Hello my dear fellow gacha addicts! I’m sure you’ve heard now that the Fantasy Gacha Carnival is open for business. And ..wow, there are some fantastic things set up for us this round. There’s an added plus for this round too. Some of the designers have made a special edition item for sale at their booths. This item has limited amounts available and after the Carnival the item will be retired making them real collectors pieces.

First up is the Mockingjay dress from !go!  I pulled both the ‘Sparrow’ and the ‘Raven’ complete outfits (The tail and the corset are separate items) but I chose to show the ‘Sparrow’ because it goes so perfectly with the ‘Blonde Dipped’ Minky’ hair from Blues!

sparrowjpg_001

Next is the gorgeous ‘Inanna’ gown from Anphorism. I have to admit… I played this Gacha… a lot! I love the rich details of the embroidery and the lace at the bodice. The gown comes in three patterns, Vine, Flower and Wild Flower, with each pattern coming in three different colors. The Rares are three coats in a vintage white, charcoal and peacock.  The gown I chose is the Vine pattern in rose

gacha2_001
I picked the rose gown to show off because not ten minutes before I popped over to the Fantasy Gacha Carnival, I had visited Like Design to pick up the lovely pale pick hair which is the Second Life Frees and Offers gift right now. Then I pulled the pale lavender Lahkshana Bare Horns from Plastik and I knew a soft pastels look was in my future! I topped everything off with the peals and gold of the ‘Moonchild’ Fairy Court Crown from Zyn.

gacha1_004

This is just a tiny sample from the Carnival and honestly, I had a terrible time picking just a handful of things to show off! If you love Gacha or Fantasy items this is the event for you!

 Now a bit of technical stuff… all of the Gacha items are here, at the Fantasy Gacha Carnival. 

The LandMarks in the list below are to the designers main stores. I encourage you to visit them. If you like their Gacha… you just might love the store!

Once Upon a Time…

. . . . there was lovely princess who had a magical nightingale that sang the most beautiful songs….

fairytale_001

Hello, my dears! If you’ve ever loved fairytales, I have the hunt for you: Finding the Fairytale by Fun With Hunts!

This is the Fairytale Dress: Rose by Toxic*H. The corset and dress are one seamless piece with just one alpha layer. I love the rich red color and the bell sleeves. I don’t know if designers get together sometimes and plan their hunt gifts to perfectly compliment each other but that’s what’s happened with the Rose dress and the “Fire in Flight” Beaded necklace from Glint. Don’t they look great together?

What’s a good story without some magic? This is the Mechanical Nightingale from Insanity’s Own. The little shoulder bird sings at a touch as his key winds. After taking the pictures, I set him up in my house to keep me and Blaze company.

fairytale_003

This hunt has a little something for everyone. There are gifts for both men and women and things for the home. There’s even some very nice poses. These elegant poses are from Verocity and there are several couples poses from other Hunt participates.

The Finding the Fairytale Hunt is a 1L hunt and it runs until Feb. 28 so get your fairy wings and wands and get hunting!

You Can Call Me Jill

You Can Call Me Jill

You can call me Jill. Recently, I completed the “Jill” path on the Depraved Nation’s Jack or Jill Hunt. There are several lovely prizes, all of them FREE, so I chose to show a few of them here on the blog! I’m really enjoying this fantastic look I was able to create using mostly free items.

First are these highly detailed horns from Loulou & Co. They are the FREE JOJH Gift from Loulou & Co. Loulou & Co. has been a personal wardrobe staple of mine for years, especially when it comes to accessories. The details in these pretty yet fierce looking horns is beautiful. They also include a re-size script so you can fit them easily to your shape and preference.

Next, I’m really enjoying the look of this forehead tattoo from Arise. The tattoo is their FREE JOJH Gift and it includes the tattoo layer in 3 versions, Soft, Middle, and Hard. I do want to point out however that your brow shape can affect the shape of this tattoo, I had to change mine to keep the tattoo from having a curve in the center.

These gorgeous floral and feather lashes are by La Petite Morte. They are also a FREE gift, however they are one of the gifts you can choose after completing one of the cards from the Enchantment event. For more information on how the Enchantment event works, please click here. The lashes come with 3 variations, a red version (shown), a black version, and a white version.

Framed by the pretty lashes from La Petite Morte are these doll-like eyes from Chus!. These are yet another FREE gift on the Jill path of the JOJH. These are just one color example of several in the fat pack of eyes, there is certainly something for everyone.

By now you must know how much I love makeup. This vampy red lipstick is part of the FREE JOJH gift from Pink Acid. I love everything I’ve ever bought or “hunted” from Pink Acid, these lipsticks are so pretty on. They come in a fat pack of jewel tones and include appliers for The Shops as well as regular tattoo layers.

Finally, the leather top is the JOJH gift from Cheeky. This gift, like the others is also FREE and comes with a myriad of appliers (Lolas Tango, Mirage, WowMeh, Slink Physique, and Omega). It also of course does include the regular system layers.

I really and truly enjoyed putting this look together. To give you a closer look at the colors, I’ve included the vendor photos, created by the designers for the Pink Acid lip shines, and the eyes from Chus! below.
