Some Second Life Snow

Dream_001

“When you have a dream, you’ve got to grab it and never let it go.” Carol Burnett

I’ve been dreaming a lot about a white Christmas. Sure I can find plenty of snow in Second Life, but all I’ve had here where I live is the cold, cold, cold. No snow yet. I admit, I miss the flurries and white just a bit. Meanwhile, I’ll settle for the pretty white, of Second Life snow, until real life delivers!

Some Second Life Snow…

PixelArt showed off some snow with a special free POE Hunt gift that is a 4 prim snow photo studio. The studio includes 10 different winter backdrops including the one I am showing off in the picture, two actual prim trees that you can just glimpse in my picture, and a set of very nice poses that you change by clicking on a snowflake at the top of the studio. It’s a beautiful free snowy gift!

Some Glam…

My glamourous dress is the free POE Hunt gift from Paisley Daisy and is perfect for winter glam parties, nights on the town, ballgowns and formal occasions, and those ever popular Christmas parties. This full length gown with the generous side split is luscious with its generous array of shimmering colors and comes in may sizes.

Available Dress Sizes:

  • Fitmesh XS – L
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Belleza

All That Jazz

All That Jazz

I got my gladrags on, so let’s cut a rug!  Standing on the edge of the dance floor, I’m just dying to jump in and jitterbug.  Wouldn’t that just be the bee’s knees?

Ok, I’m out of 1920’s parlance.  Nevertheless, the spirit remains:  This dress makes me want to dance!

Speakeasy Sparkle

I was completely inspired by this sparkly shiny dress by Seniha to teleport over to 1920’s New York and frolic with the flappers.  This silver party dress is a great little number for a fun night on the town, or even a hot date!  The detailing is quite superb, and the different shades of silver on the sequins gives a high level of visual interest.  The Amishar Dress is completely free at Seniha designs.  Just join their group for free, and pick up the dress in store.  There are also a few other lovely gifts on the wall for you to check out.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

Princess Vibes

To complete my 1920’s glam look, I added the Princess Tiara from Sn@tch.  I found this lovely filligree accessory at the Winter’s Hollow event, and it is also completely free!  It comes in gold and silver versions, and can be resized easily to fit any hairstyle you may have on!  There are a few other free and cheap gifts at Winter’s Hollow, so jump down and grab ’em.

Time for me to jump on the floor and be the cat’s meow!

Proud as a Peacock

Proud as a Peacock

You know that problem we’ve all got in SL – not wanting to wear the same thing twice?  Well, I think I’ve found a dress that may make me want to break that rule.  ‘Tis the season for sparkly dresses, and this super pretty one is completely FREE!  Yummy!

You too can get this pretty number by just spending a few minutes searching for it on the rOrO cart at The Guest List.  Yep, no random walking about, no scratching your head for ages, just find the little strawberry on the cart, and it’s all yours.  Easy peasy lemon squeezy!

The Cotton Candy Beaded Gown made me think of peacocks – I do love the deep turquoises and purples of the dress, and the slit on the side made for a nice exotic touch.  A real showstopper for all the parties and events this season.  A golden beaded shawl is also included to keep warm on those chilly nights (not pictured).

Sizes

  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Freya
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique

Now, did someone promise me champagne?

The Cold Never Bothered Me Anyway

The Cold Never Bothered me Anyway

It has recently come to my attention that I often venture out into winter conditions in SL wearing the least practical thing possible.  But you know what I say to that?  I say I can’t catch pneumonia in SL, so I’ll wear whatever I want in cold weather! So there!

If you are also unafraid of hypothermia, then read on and find out how to get this striking gown from Scandalize at FaMESHed for free!

Shiver

The gorgeous Loan gown by Scandalize is sexy and striking all at the same time.  The greatest thing about it is that it comes in a full fatpack of colours, as well as loads of different ombré combinations.  Additionally, the top and skirt are separate so you can mix and match with other items in your inventory.  Basically, you can never run out of options for this dress!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus
  • Sparkle On

I also picked up a free gift from !Aphorism! at FaMESHed that is a pretty little trinket you can wear to all your holiday parties and beyond.  The Antique Bracelet is a delicate chain with a heart locket on the end that you really won’t want to take off.  Here’s a close up of the bracelet for your viewing pleasure!

The Cold Doesn't Bother Me Anyway 2
Nip over to FaMESHed and check what’s under the tree for you!  This round runs until December 27th.  I’d better go find a blanket before I shiver myself into the next sim!

Replenishing Pixie Powers

Reindeer Princess

Hello Fabulouses!  As Ripley and I were out wandering the grid, my canine pal froze, pricked up his ears, tilted his head, then took off running.  Barely managing to keep him in my field of vision, I trailed behind, wondering what in the world had gotten into the pupster this time.  Out of breath, I finally caught up to Rip at the Pennycat sim, where I found him offering a comforting paw to a downcast pixie.  She and the other magical creatures on the sim explained that the Great Pixie of Winter had been weakened in a battle with the Demon of the Sun.  By collecting snowflakes and returning them to the Pixie of Night Snow, we could help the Great Pixie of Winter to recover all three of her powers.  It seemed a simple enough task, and with the promise of some lovely hunt prizes, Ripley and I set to work collecting snowflakes for the Pixies of Snow Hunt.  In just a short amount of time, we were victorious in our mission, and gathered our hunt prizes.  Two of them are featured in tonight’s post.

Reindeer Princess

My gorgeous crimson and white gown set the theme for the outfit I put together for my photo today.  The Aurora Princess Dress is a free gift from Shanti for members of the Shanti Bohemian Shop group.  This stunning strapless dress features a red bodice with contrasting white stitching, and a full paneled, floor length skirt.  In the chilly early winter air, I was grateful for the coordinating wrap draped around my shoulders.   The gift box includes mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL and an alpha layer for classic avatars.  To pick up a copy for yourself, teleport to the shop, activate the group tag (50L join fee) and click the vendor.  The generous designer set out other gifts out for group members, too.

Myster Owl

A “Crown” Atop My Head and a New Found Friend

The free prize box from Tayren’s Fantasy Fashions awarded at the conclusion of the Pixies of Snow Hunt contained two fun accessories to complete my outfit.  Sitting atop my head, the free Winter Stag Antlers added a touch of whimsy and holiday spirit to my otherwise formal attire.  The pale gray color scheme worked well with the winter white sections of my gown.  Every princess needs a trusted advisor or two, and Mr. Wyse, my free shoulder pet (also from Tayren’s Fantasy Fashions)  fit the bill perfectly.  He is just so cute, and is already fast friends with Ripley.  The best part in Ripley’s opinion…. he doesn’t care to munch on Ripley snacks!

More Boxes to Unpack…

I still have more packages to open and hunt prizes to sort through.  It almost looks like Christmas came early to my little homestead.  I think there’s a very good chance Ripley and I will be back soon with another Pixie gift or two.  Until my next post, happy shopping hunting!

Of Counts and Mince Pies

Of Counts and Mince Pies

The Holiday Season is upon us, and that calls for cute dresses galore!  I was invited to a party by some dude who calls himself “Count Ladislaus”.  He said there would be mulled wine, and mince pies, and all sorts, so I rummaged through my inventory, but alas, no appropriate frock was to be found!   I bundled myself up, and jumped out into the cold to find something that would look festive and not break the bank.

Eureka!

My taxi dropped me off in front of TRS Designs, where there were several group gifts to be had!  The TRS Designs group is free to join, to which I said “huzzah!”.  The Midnight Madness boards caught my fancy as they have rather low goal (20 slaps and you win!) , so I gave them a tap.  Only a few minutes later, and much to my delight, there was a lovely free dress in my inventory!

That evening, I donned my dress, buckled my shoes, got my hair did, and headed to the party!  Turns out Count Ladislaus was nothing but a Baronet, and the mince pies were overcooked.  I guess you can’t have everything in this Second Life!

The Importance of Calling “Dibs”

11-30-207

Dibs – Plural noun  \ ˈdibz \  

The most powerful force  in the universe, “dibs” is used to call possession of a certain object or idea. “Dibs” is a time honored tradition to all, except one… I saw the “Prenzlau” Armchair & Side Table by Kusshon as I was looking at the previews of the Peace on Earth Hunt and I immediately called “dibs”. She looked at me as if I was speaking in a foreign language (which, technically, I was because she uses too many vowels in her words). I found the definition and pasted it into chat. It was like she couldn’t read it. She then rezzed the chair and said “Oh, do you mean THIS chair?” It’s funny how she remembers the story differently [HERE]. (Ok, the part about watching pretty blondes in spandex and capes was true) It was at that point I knew for certain that she either doesn’t understand “dibs” or just completely ignored it. My money is on ignoring me as she does that most the time anyhow…

And now, back to our regularly scheduled post…

The cat doesn’t sit on his lap. He CHOOSES to sit under the feline. He doesn’t light a cigar. The cigar spontaneously lights as it touches his lips. He is the most interesting man in the world (who believes in “dibs”). And what does the most interesting man in the world wear? The Formal Men’s Suit by Wilson’s Designs as Part of the Peace on Earth Hunt. The hunt officially starts tomorrow and everyone is as excited as a child on Christmas Eve holding a plate of cookies for Santa. I’d call “dibs” on the plate of cookies, but I have a feeling I know how that would turn out…

My Heart Will Go On

Right Here Waiting...

Hello there, Fabulous Readers!  Since Ripley and I had such good luck with our last hunt (you can see my post {HERE}), we decided to hit the trail again.  We came away with this strappy beauty, which is a Sexy Christmas Hunt prize from Waffles.  In a rich shade of crimson, my Flame Crepe gown hugged all my curves and fell to ground level where it flared gracefully at my feet.   I felt so sleek and elegant in this frock!  It features a back that dips low, as well as a dramatic neckline, yet keeps you covered in all the right places.  The prize package, which costs only 1 little Linden dollar, includes versions for classic as well as mesh avatars.  To pick up this dress for yourself, journey over to Waffles, and search for the red phrase “sexy” somewhere in the store.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Venus

Until my next post, happy shopping hunting!
