FT Twisted Fall hunt 2015_Victorian Gothic LRThe Twisted Hunt (9/19-10/19) is well under way and although dubbed the hardest hunt on Second Life, the prizes are worth the effort.  Today, I’m showcasing Finishing Touches main hunt gift the Qi Skybox, side hunt items and a corresponding gacha collection.  The skybox and all the furnishings have a modern Victorian Gothic influence in a black, white and grayscale palette….perfect for a sophisticated Halloween.  Victorian Gothic is an architectural style and movement during the mid-late 19th century, often seen as a sub-style of the broader Gothic Revival style.  It is characterized by gothic details, decorative patterns, scallopping, lancet windows and hood moulding.  Architectural elements such as pointed arches, steep-sloping roofs and fancy carvings like lace ant lattice-work were applied to a wide range of Gothic Revival objects.  The movement is all about drama and elegance with lavish interiors, curved ornate furniture and plenty of decorative details.

FT Twisted Fall hunt 2015_Victorian GothicFinishing Touches Qi skybox has a decorative pattern tiled ceiling, tall narrow pointed arched windows, oversized white candle fireplace and white/black wainscoting.  I styled the Victorian living space with the tufted curved black & white sofas, armchairs and stools enhancing the ornate detailed birdcage chandeliers and patterned tapestry wall hangings.  Pops of red, hanging boston ferns, potted palms and framed Victorian silhouette complete the space.

FT Twisted Fall hunt 2015_Gold SkeletonTo commemorate the 11th Twisted Hunt, Finishing Touches is offering a side hunt with eleven gifts that correspond to the gacha collection.  The hunt items include 3 versions of a skirted table, 3 versions of hanging tapestry, couple rugs with pillows, Persian Grey wrinkled rug, box of skulls, pumpkin trio and ceramic vase.  All side hunt gifts can be found in the Twisted Qi skybox (the main Twisted Hunt gift).  Do you love the Qi skybox?  Need to furnish it, then check out the gacha for beautifully twisted coordinating decor priced at $50 per play.  Try your luck at black or white caged chandeliers, shadow box frames, tulip lamps, coffee tables, and tufted stools (see key below).

_FT_ Twisted Gacha Fall 2015Lastly, 24Karat Roux, owner and creator of Finishing Touches is offering the Rolled Arm Couch & Chair in White Leather and Black Leather for 50% off the regular price during the Twisted Hunt.  The couch and chair were designed to coordinate with the Twisted Qi skybox hunt gift and Twisted gacha decor items.  Hope you are inspired to create an elegance spooky gothic Halloween using the Finishing Touches free Twisted hunt gifts.  Happy Hunting!

Your Friday Hunt Report

HUNT SL Boo Bunny HuntIt’s October in Second Life and it’s all about Halloween, so if you’re into spooky hunts and picking up all kinds of costumes and costume parts then you should be in seventh heaven. There are a bunch of Halloween themed grid wide hunts but check out the sim and store hunts too. New ones are cropping up nearly every day.

So shake the dust out of your trick-or-treat bag and tell your friends about all of these hunts… because it’s more fun to go trick-or-treating in a group! Just poke the hunt names with a skeletal finger to get more info on each one.

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.



This is My Costume

This is My Costume

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again, fall is truly my favorite time of year, and I love October the most. Why? Halloween of course! I am so excited about the fall/Halloween themed goodness I have to share with you.

Just recently the creator of Plastik sent out a wicked awesome gift, or gifts I should say to their subscribo group. In celebration of Halloween, the gift includes a complete outfit, perfect for the holiday. This outfit includes the little black dress that has “This is My Costume” scrawled across it, and the over-the-knee boots. Both the dress and the boots include various size and fit options. The boots come in Maitreya fit, xxs, xs, s, m, and large sizes. The dress includes standard sizing, and fitted mesh, as well as a Maitreya specific fit, a Belleza fit, and a Slink fit. This epic gift also includes a full set of jewelry and accessories, there are 4 rings, a circlet, 2 necklaces, a belly ring, a wrist cuff, wings, horns, several makeup tattoo layers, and a nail polish applier. I want to take a second to tell you about the nail polish. This rich black color has a bright yellow/green under-layer that shows on the underside of the nail. The applier is for Maitreya hands. While you’re checking out the nail polish, take a look at the detail of the jewelry pieces. The top amulet is what dangles from the curved horns, you’ll see 3 of the 4 beautiful rings, and a close-up of the charm hanging from 1 of the 2 necklaces. It’s hard to believe that this incredible gift from Plastik is FREE with no tags needed, just join the subscribo.

Like the lovely fall decor? I think it’s really beautiful and you can pick the full “fall console” set up at Kaerri for just 10 lindens for a limited time. The set is not linked, so you can arrange all or some of the individual pieces any way you like, or keep them in the pre-arranged setup. This mesh set includes the table, mirror, candle, pumpkin & leaves, and vase. To get the set just head over to Kaerri and you’ll find it waiting just outside the main entrance.

HUNT SL marketplace-hunt-poster-v2-0Good morning Fabulous Friends! Yesterday I reported on all the October hunts that just started. Today, let’s have a look at ALL the hunts currently going on in Second Life.

If you like shoes, and all things foot related, you might want to take a look at the Best Foot Forward hunt. This hunt has 27 stops so you can probably go from start to finish in a couple of hours. Look for the black shoe prints.

Is  your avatar too tired to run around? You might try out the Marketplace Hunt. That’s right, you don’t actually have to “go” anywhere… just jump around the Marketplace looking for the items tagged for the hunt. Pretty clever actually.

There are plenty of other themes of course. Check out the list!

The October Hunts Are Here!

Just Started Clock HandWelcome to October! I have all kinds of new hunts to tell you about this morning!

Halloween is going to be the big theme for hunts this month of course, but there’s plenty of other stuff to go around too… the circus, moonies, literature, art, and women’s fashion, just to name a few. I’m sure you can find a hunt that “speaks” to you.

So take a gander at this big list of hunts and poke the hunt names for more information on each one. More October hunt goodness will be popping up daily, so check back when you can. Now let’s go hunting!



Of Fairies, Ladies, and Crypts

The spirits of ladies on lakes and fairies wander freely… the moon shines and though you know you should be afraid… you can’t help but feel enchanted instead. And it all begins with a few pumpkins left out for the picking by the Fantasy Creator’s Showcase Event at the Rising Phoenix Sim

Of Fairies, Ladies, and Crypts [1]

“All the ancient classic fairy tales have always been scary and dark.” – Helena Bonham Carter

And the Creator’s Showcase Hunt got this idea just right with their fantastic gifts. There are 13 pumpkins hidden on the sim — actually they are all out in plain sight. Some of the stores have one pumpkin at their stalls. A few of them have two. All of them are easy to see and you just buy the contents for FREE. A trick not a treat!

In the picture above Astrid is wearing the Autumn Fae costume (complete with wings) by BlueMoon Enterprises. This Creator Showcase Hunt Pumpkin Gift is FREE and includes the full outfit in all the standard mesh sizes plus the gorgeous wings you see in the picture.

I also wanted to show you this fabulous Halloween Cat Mask by Chimeric Arts & Fashion which seemed to fit the Autumn Fae Costume just perfectly. This too was another FREE Hunt Pumpkin Gift at the Creator Showcase event.

Just behind Astrid and at her feet you can see the Creator’s Show Case Hunt Gift from United InishCon *UI* called the Dirty Little Secret Log. It has great little butterflies that flit and fly above it as well as a terrific animation when you sit on it. Your avatar will look from side to side before crawling inside to hide in the log! Like all the other gifts, it too is absolutely FREE!

Of Fairies, Ladies, and Crypts [3]

“As much as I’d like to meet the tooth fairy on an evening walk, I don’t really believe it can happen.” – Chris Van Alssburg

Of course… this is Second Life where anything can happen — (almost) — and look! There is a fairy and the lady of the lake both! As well as another chance for me to show off some amazing Hunt Gifts. If you look in Astrid’s right hand, you’ll see she is carrying the Creator’s Showcase Hunt FREE Hunt Gift from Souzou Eien by Draconias Timeless called Light of the Watch. This fantastically detailed lantern works with your AO just fine (or any pose) to let your avatar hold it with the supplied animation.
And since we are out on a walk meeting fairy tale figures… let me introduce you to the lady of the lake, courtesy of Folklorica! As their contribution to the Creator’s Showcase Hunt, their FREE gift is this stunning Glowing Lady on the Water gift. It includes the floating lily pads and pumpkins (which are animated and turn) and the glowing Lady of the lake who is scripted to appear and disappear during night time hours on the sim where it is rezzed. (Be sure the sim it is rezzed on has a night time setting. The lady will NOT appear during ‘day’ hours if the environment has a day setting. And the script is affected by region settings, not your personal windlight setting.)

Of Fairies, Ladies, and Crypts [2]

“I am your fairy tale. Your dream. Your wishes and desires, and I am your thirst and your hunger and your food and your drink.” – Klaus Kinski

 Last but not least, I wanted to share this fabulous Creator’s Showcase Hunt gift from Old World Designs. Just like all the other gifts, it is completely FREE and well worth picking up. The Spider Infested Crypt has a resting pose for one avatar and a ‘sit’ pose for another avatar (if someone wants to sit on it while someone else is resting inside O.o) and the spiders are affected by movement. In other words… they appear and scuttle and dash away everywhere — and make tons of creepy spider noises if you sit in the crypt, stand up out of it, or if you or someone else nearby moves around it much! It is simply a must have for any haunted decor or All Hallow’s Eve celebration!

Your Friday Hunt Report

HUNT SL Good Witch Bad WitchWelcome to the first week of fall! There are lots of autumn hunts taking shape, so if you love the season as much as I do, there’s lots to be glad for. We’re also starting to see the very first trickle of Halloween hunts. Soon this will turn into a flood of spooky goodness, just like it has in years past.

My partner and I recently completed all 150 stops in the Womenstuff Hunt (yes, I have a girly avatar just for this sort of thing) and we came away with some very cool clothing and accessories. If you have a few days to spend, it’s a great hunt. We did it in stages over four days.

If that’s too long for you, there are plenty of shorter hunts. Just click the names below for the skinny on each hunt. I’m sure you can find one that’s a good fit for you.

Today’s Top 10 Hunts

HUNT SL Twisted Hunt QiGood morning fabulous friends! Here’s a listing of what’s hot in the hunt world today: Tuesday, September 22.

The Twisted Hunt is back with an all new edition and this popular hunt is holding down the top spot today. If you’re unfamiliar with the Twisted Hunts, they’re among the most challenging in Second Life, if not the MOST challenging. Finishing one is a badge of honor in the hunting community. Perhaps you’ll want to give this one a try…

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!

It’s My Party, and I’ll Eat FroYo If I want To!

Sometimes a girl’s just got to have fun — even if it means throwing herself her very own FroYo Party! And since it’s my party, I’ll eat FroYo if I want to!

It's My Party and I'll Eat FroYo If I want To [1]

But first! We have to set up! Balloons and a table are a necessity! I found these great gift balloons for only 1L at the Sherbert main-store. They are currently a Halloween gift that have been set out for anyone, no group required! The colors are fun, and they are only 2 prims for the trio plus the spider textured brick they are tied to! That’s not a trick, that’s a treat!

I also made away with fabulous goodies at The Arcade Gacha. You’ll want to take a swing by there as well. This adorable Playful Pastimes Table by R(S)W & YKFK is only 1 prim and is currently a FREE gift at the event!

And because today is all about having fun… my pose! This fun pose by Sparrowtree Studio is called “Turkey Day Pose” and includes the spoon on your nose! (As well as other props such as turkey legs and such… all optional of course!). It may seem a little early for Thanksgiving, but I was thankful for this 1L marketplace find!

It's My Party and I'll Eat FroYo If I want To [2]

And what is a party without food? Again, The Arcade Gacha did not let me down. Not only did I pick up this fun rez-day cake for only 1 prim and 50L per spin at the [ keke ] Gacha but I also found this great FREE gift by Fancy Decor near their Gacha! Free FroYo — spoon included! It’s meant to be a hold-able food prop (it even has the animation for eating!), but I discovered that I could rez them out and they were only 1 prim each! Yay for that!

Astrid’s hair is also a lucky FREE find at the The Arcade Gacha! If you stop by .Blue Olive.‘s hair Gacha, this hair style there is a FREE gift. There are also two rare styles in the machine as well. The commons in the machine are a variety of bangs (this FREE style has an option to make the “free” bangs disappear so you can add the Gacha bangs on) or headbands. I’m only showing you the FREE style, and even by itself it’s adorable! The FREE style includes a color change hud with four colors for the hair as well as several colors for the bands on the pony tails too.

The picture above is also your chance to scope out Astrid’s septum nose piercing… a golden find if I don’t say so myself! These septum piercings by (Yummy) were just 50L per spin at The Arcade Gacha. I didn’t get the rare, but I landed the Ethereal style in gold, and was just as happy, as all of these nose rings are all gorgeously detailed!

It's My Party and I'll Eat FroYo If I want To [3]

Of course all of that partying means Astrid is all tuckered out. Good thing she has comfy clothes to fall asleep in.

Be sure to stop by Prism Designs and pick up this fabulous dress that is the September FREE group gift. The group is FREE to join. The dress comes in all the standard mesh sizes and has some great details on it, including the cute cut-outs over the upper arms as well as a side-slits at the thighs.

Astrid’s shoes and socks are also a FREE gift, but you are going to have to hunt for them! You’ll need to make a stop by Lindy Modern & Retro Shoes and look for the little red dress to pick up the FREE Women’s stuff Hunt gift that is being offered at this creator’s store to sport these pumps at you own party. The pumps themselves are black only, but they come with a color change hud that will tint the socks to any color you choose (it even includes an RGB adjuster to let you fine-tune if you want)!

Pink, Pigs & Quirkiness!

PicMonkey PhotoI happened upon The Mesh Avenue and as luck would have it with a FREE group join you can pick up this mesh pink ruffled Steampunk dress. If pink isn’t your color tho not to worry there is a color hud giving with luck a color you will like. As an added bonus there is also a matching fellas outfit so grab your fella and head on over there. Tho as I am doing you most certainly can enjoy the dress minus fella “winks”.  As an extra bonus if you head upstairs after picking this up you can grab last months FREE gifts too. After leaving I stumbled upon The Totally Wrong Hunt. Its a fun quirky hunt and the prizes are FREE. You are given 3 hints only 1 of which is the real hint but even so I found all the prizes pretty easy to find. Many stops have markers on the floor leading in the right direction too. This cute piggy side table from Sickly Sweet next to me is one of the prizes I found. You have til the 30th to run this hunt and to grab the dress. PicMonkey Collage
Still hunting I picked up this set of FREE fun “I can’t chairs!” at Chiana Oh. You get 2 chair in 2 colors and they each have 3 fun poses. I snagged them thinking that they may be really cool to use in a hunted house but there are so many thing you could do with them too.
PicMonkey Collage1
Ok I have to admit I only stopped by Fi’s Creations to pick up their FREE Totally Wrong Hunt prize, Heartburn because it was so quirky looking. This odd quirky outfit cuts a hole in your middle and shows whats inside your tummy. The candle inside me is included and part of the outfit. You get a mesh top and skirt and the cutout tummy which can actually be worn with anything that bares your middle because the pieces are all separates. So again thinking forward towards Halloween I think I can use this cut out tummy to make a cool costume.

Ok pink check, pig check and quirky check we got them all and now I am off to see what other fun I can find to show you next time.
