Laissez Les Bon Temps Roulez

Fabulous Fat Tuesday, FabFree-ers!

Laissez Les Bon Temps Roulez

Yep, it’s Mardi Gras Tuesday and 25 Linden Tuesday all rolled up into one! So let’s Laissez Les Bon Temps Roulez!

First is my sparkly ‘Carnival’ top from It’s Gau. This is a new designer to me and I’m very excited to have discovered them. There are tons of group gifts, lucky boards and specials all over the store. This cute tank top ( With attached bikini top) and the matching tee for the gentlemen are the current group gift. It comes in the standard Mesh sizes XS-L and has it’s own alpha layer. Since this is a Mardi Gras gift… the Group Gift at It’s Gau may change very soon so hurry over if you need to snatch it up.

My beads are a Marketplace find. These are ‘Mardi Gras Beads’ from Dreamwalker Creations and they are free for everyone. Don’t they really set off my whole Mardi Gras look?

My gorgeous mask is from Chimeric Arts and it’s  their special for 25 Linden Tuesday. I can’t believe the details and just the quality of the build. I was so excited to find it for such a low price. Chimeric Arts is offering three of the ‘Feathered and Beaked’ masks and three ‘Half Face’ masks as well for the special.

My cute pose is also a 25 Linden Tuesday find! This is ‘The Guard’ pose pack from Belle Epoque. You get six poses all for 25L. I like each of them and had a hard time picking one for this post. So I’m betting you’ll be seeing lots more of this pose pack in the future.

 

25L Tuesday runs all day today so don’t delay getting your shop hopping on!

Flowers in Betty’s Boudoir

Flowers in Betty's Boudoir 1

If you need a romantic gown for the upcoming Valentine’s weekend — or for any occasion — now is your chance to pick up a Junbug classic as a FREE group gift. If you stop by Junbug‘s main-store location, the current group gift is this stunning Betty’s Boudoir in sky blue brocade. You’ll need to wear your group tag (200L to join the group) but when you consider the gifts and benefits, the sum is worth joining the group.

This gown is highly detailed mesh in all the standard sizes. The corset has stunning ribbons and buttons down the front that are perfect for romance. I did pair mine with a lacy underlay for added romance, but the gown is also perfect just by itself.

The devil is in the details as they say! But this deal is certainly heavily! Stop by ECCO main-store next where you can get two perfectly FREE gifts of jewelry to go with your new gown! My simply stunning Pearl Swoosh Earrings are a FREE gift exclusively for members of the FabFree Group. Just wear your FabFree tag (it’s FREE to join the group!) to pick these up! Not only are they delicate and lovely, but they also include a texture change hud with five color choices!

My hair clip is another generous FREE gift, this time ECCO is giving it FREE as part of SL frees & offers. Wear your SL frees & offers group tag (also FREE to join) and you can pick up this lovely Jewels Hair Flower in three metal choices!

Like all group gifts they won’t last forever… be sure to hurry over and pick them up while they are available!

A Cascade of Magic

Sometimes a little fantasy pick-me-up is just the thing to make your day… and today I felt like making a little magic! I picked up a few things around the grid sure to make any role player’s day a bit more magical, and I’m here to let you in on the magician’s secrets!

Right now if you stop by [EvelineInTheBox], the creator’s February gift is out. It is this lovely Thyri Cascade dress in mesh (all the standard sizes) that is really just fantastic. I love the way the dress curves around my avatar’s body! It is FREE to group member and the group is FREE to join, making this lovely gift a sweet deal!

A Cascade of Magic

Remember that Alice Project is still hosting their Winter Project! Today I stopped by to pick up this hair called Amy in the Winter Shimmer version… which is the VIP members’ gift. This is FREE to VIPs. The group is 750L to join but there are always TONS of amazing offers. There is also a FREE pack out for nonmembers, so it’s still very worth your time to stop by and pick up the giftie even if you are not a VIP member.

My roleplay character Astrid is a fey who does light and magic using staffs… so when I saw this crystal staff at A.D.D.Andel! I fell in love! It is only 50L per spin at the in-store gacha and there are lots of beautiful staffs in the machine. These are even modifiable, so I was able to make mine have a bit of a glow to better fit how I envisioned my character. Love, love, love this!

Menstuff Ahoy!

whc LKD pirate 1 a

whc LKD pirate1 b

Ahoy Matees! ARGGH…cough, cough, cough. Okay, That’s about the extent of my pirate role-play. It’s the “Argghs” that kill me. It’s hard to sound sexy when you start coughing and flailing your arms wildly in international amateur sign language for “I am ok, don’t call an ambulance”. That can kind of take the sexy out of things.

Luckily, the clothes can bring the sexy back and that’s what I like most about the outfit I’m wearing from Lo Kajirus Designs. The “Like A Pirate Mesh Slave Outfit” Menstuff Hunt gift comes role-play ready for daring adventurers, club hoppers and cabin boys across the grid. It is a highly unique outfit and consists of Mesh pantaloons, jewelry, Mesh eye-patches, a collar (both scripted and non-scripted) and a colorful belt sash. The pantaloons come in five sizes for a good fit, and the accessories are fun and quite attractive. Overall, the quality of the outfit is impressive and for only 1L, it’s a bargain. It doesn’t matter if your pirate vessel is a schooner or a shopping cart, it’s the clothes that make the man O’war! Aye, prepare to be boarded!

Seven Deadly s{K}ins is offering the Menstuff Hunt Bowie Skin in both taupe and walnut tones with and without hairbases as their free hunt prize. Heavily freckled and with super realistic facial hair, they are considerably handsome skins. I was quite impressed with the quality as well as the fact that 7DS also includes appliers if you are lucky enough to have slink hands and feet. The Bowie skin is definitely an excellent pick up for those of us looking for an quality skin upgrade for free!

whc piratecart FE Style 2_001

As I sailed through the calm seas of the Menstuff Hunt, I encountered this wonderful Jacket and Shirt Combo from FE Style. The Wekleh Jacket w/T-Shirt is a one piece mesh evocative of maritime clothes in an entirely different way. The simple, understated styling gives a classic masculine look for any male avi. Offered in four sizes, one of which is Fitmesh, a fine fit without any fuss will be easy to accomplish. Perfect for the dock or the deck, this 1L hunt prize is certainly a first-class item to grab.

The Menstuff Hunt is a 1L hunt but only 31 stores elected to charge for their gifts. The hunt object you are looking for is a blue T-Shirt and can be small, so follow any hints that have been posted on the Menstuff Hunt page. You will not find a better run Men’s hunt on Second Life. So ends this chapter in my Menstuff voyage for now, take care everyone and a quick reminder that Valentine’s Day approaches. Enjoy SL and I will see you on the grid!—–WHC Riler

Resting With My Reindeer

Resting With The Reindeer

Winter is not quite over yet… and I found a great accessory to prove it! Right now, if you go to the Jinx Fantasy Store location, you can join the group FREE and get this amazing wearable AFK reindeer (with pose) group gift for FREE. It’s modifiable, so if you have a little bit of editing skills, you can make the ‘afk’ sign part invisible (like I did) and just lay down with your new reindeer in the snow for a very nice fantasy feel! I included a picture of the gift advertisement below, so you could see what the item looks like with the ‘afk’ tag on it too. It is a really terrific prop all the way around!

I also did a bit of hunting, and for just 1L picked up this Pearl Lingerie bodysuit by OMG! Inc. as part of the Cute and Curvy Hunt. The details on it are amazing, and even though it only comes in system layers, I just fell in love!

Your Friday Hunt Report

HUNT SL Black_or_White_Hunt_2_-_POSTER_IMAGEIt’s Friday, and that means we have another fun weekend of hunting ahead of us. There are some very nice hunts going on right now. Just check the list (below) and see for  yourself.

In case you haven’t heard, hunting is a fun and rewarding “sport.” Merchants hide gifts in their stores just because they want you to visit. All you have to do is follow hints to find them. You’ll come away with all kinds of free stuff (or nearly free… some hunts charge a L$ or two for each hunt item). Your inventory will soon be stuffed full of clothing, shoes, accessories, furniture, etc.

If you’re new to hunting, both FabFree and HUNT SL have pages full of tips to help you get going. I recommend them to novice and veteran hunters alike.

So what are you waiting for? Let’s go  hunting!

Today’s Top 10 Hunts

HUNT SL Hunt For Your Inner Slut 13Good morning fabulous friends! Here’s a listing of what’s hot in the hunt world today: Tuesday, January 19.

The top hunt today is the thirteenth edition of Hunt for Your Inner Slut and this time around it has a Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy theme. I’m not sure what that means in terms of sluts but I’m interested to find out!

The Black or White Hunt is back again in the number two spot and the Menstuff Hunt is at number three. Both of these are great hunts. There are plenty of other hunts to check out too. So let’s all go hunting!

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!
