And Now… A Moment of Zen

And Now... A Moment of Zen

 

Tai Chi with some Chai Tea…

Getting centered is now part of my daily avocation and nothing goes better together than Tai Chi and a cup of Chai Tea afterwards. I needed to be at total peace to put on a new avatar to model for you today (I get nervous I will never get my usual body back on correctly). I found the Robert Bento Mesh Fullbody Avatar at Altamura for FREE on the Men Only Hunt 10. I recommend you pick this up even if you make no other stops on this hunt. I kept the avatar in it’s unpackaged condition (no appliers) so you can see what you are getting. I was impressed with a couple of things, one being the facial movements of the Bento head, and the other being the alpha HUD.

Accessorizing the New Look…

I used some other items from the MOH10 to give “Robert” his own personal flair. Bad Hair Day provided the Irusu Hair as their hunt gift. Avi-Glam‘s gift is the Cold Day Eyes. To cover my “bits”, I put on the Brian Boxers, the gift that can be found at Alter. This gift includes a HUD that lets you select from five different colors. I accessorized with the Rage Nose Piercing, the hunt prize found at LouLou&Co & BeBop . And.I also put on the Knight Cross Necklace, found at etham.  Did I mention that all the gifts I just mentioned are FREE? The pose today is also a FREE gift on the MOH10. Grafica provided as a gift the Gwrido pose set.

May you find your inner peace today.

Finding the REALLY BIG ONE!

Finding the BIG ONE!

No rest for the weary…

My Sunday didn’t go as planned. I was hoping to enjoy the middle part of my three day weekend lounging in bed until an ungodly hour, then putting on a pot of chili and watching some football. But when she entered the bedroom all perky (note: Who is this person? She is never perky in the morning). I knew my plans were a bust. Her chore for me today… go find the perfect pumpkin. And not just any pumpkin, but a REEEALLY BIIIIG one (Her words, not mine). After stopping by many pumpkin farms, I think I found one that will please her (A challenge in itself). If I hurry, I can still catch the start of the game. I hope she took pity on me and started the chili.

Men Only (Not Really)…

Today’s look comes straight from the Men Only Hunt 10. The Hunt started over the weekend and everywhere I went there were hunters looking for the FREE gifts. My outfit is the FREE hunt gift at Wilson’s Designs. The Rust Pullover and Blue Jeans are the perfect fall casual look to find pumpkins (or mustaches). The Shirt comes fitted sizes ADAM, Aesthetic, Jake, Gianni, Slink, TMP and classic avatar XS-XL. The pants come in sizes XS-XL. The Jake Canvas Sneakers can be found at ILLI as the FREE hunt prize. These beautifully detailed sneakers come in sizes for the the following body types:   ADAM, Aesthetic, Jake, MeshProject, Signature, Slink and TMP. Don’t worry, ladies, there are also sizes in the gift to fit you too!

Oh My Gourd…

Today’s pose is the FREE MOH10 gift from Le Poppycock. The Oh My Gourd pose comes with the pose, the large pumpkin that you carry and a group of pumpkins for your background (not shown). The Men Only Hunt 10 runs until October 28th.

I hope this one is big enough. I don’t think my back could handle a bigger one!

We All Float

We All Float

Want a balloon?

As  I was looking through my week’s worth of hunting, I saw these two  hunt items and just knew they belonged together. “We All Float” sign is a dollarbie hunt gift from Celestrial Designs as part of the Horror Hunt. With its transparent background, you can let it “float” anywhere.  The Laughing Clown can be found at Stitches Creations as a FREE gift on the Masque Hunt.  Both items are great decorating decor for this Halloween season.

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?

~ Kat (and Ripley – who really, really wants that pie!)

Kat is wearing…

Mesh Body:  Maitreya Lara

Mesh Head:  Catwa Kathy (Bento)

Head Applier:  Glam Affair Alura

Eyeliner:  Euphoric Nefertiti Eyeliner for Catwa Mesh Head

Lipstick Applier:  Izzie’s Catwa Lipstick Applier (Aiko)

Eyes:  IKON Triumph Eyes in Coffee

Hair:  Truth Hair Cinnamon

Dress:  Moonlite Cat Creations Wiccan Gown with Shawl (prize for the All Hallows Eve Hunt – 1L ~ hunt runs through Oct. 31st)

Pose:  Lyrium Very Random Pose (free on the Marketplace – 0L)

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!

Serial Killer

Serial Killer

♫ When Carson said he didn’t like his teddy 
You knew he was a no good kid
When he threatened your life 
With a switchblade knife ♫

He was a low down cheap little punk…

Everyone knew he would end up in jail. It’s finally happened. They caught him with a bloody switchblade knife in his hand and dead bodies up and down the street. When asked why he committed such a gruesome act of violence, he could only reply “They didn’t like me! They never liked me!” 

Orange is the New Black

My new current (and for the foreseeable future) look is a FREE gift on the Masque Hunt. Find the Men’s Orange Jumpsuit at Fukin Cute. Also included in the gift is a sign with a HUD with four different reasons for your arrest (pose included), handcuffs, and a HUD to change your jumpsuit from orange to gray and you can even be blood splattered if you want! Don’t worry, Ladies! This gift comes in your sizes too! The Masque Hunt runs through October 31st.

♫ What a guy
Makes you cry
And I did ♫

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 :).

Oubliette Halloween Hunt

OublietteWelcome back to the blog Fab Free’rs! I have to say autumn is the one time of year that I am most excited about hunts in Second Life. I love all things fall or Halloween related. Maybe it’s because I was born this time of year, both in real life and in Second Life. You might laugh at me for this, but no joke, I started decorating my house for Halloween the second week in September. Haha Needless to say, I was super excited to hear about the Halloween Hunt at Oubliette.

In celebration of the season Oubliette is having a Halloween Hunt with 10 total hunt prizes hidden in the Oubliette shop and the grounds surrounding. There are 8 home furniture and decor items, and 2 lounge-wear items. Each hunt prize is just 10 lindens. There are no group tags required for this hunt, everyone can participate. There is a playful occult-ish theme to these hunt items. If you’re unfamiliar with Oubliette, the style is sometimes a tad macabre and always beautiful. Every one of the decor or furniture items in the above photo is included in this hunt from the darkly whimsical embroidery to the sleeping kitty on the rug. The black and purple Victorian era inspired chair has a few male and female sit poses, the one in the photo however is from Pru’s animation override-r.
Oubliette 2
Along with the lovely home goods, this beautiful maxi style off-the-shoulder dress and matching slippers are part of the Oubliette Home Halloween Hunt. There is something a little bit pagan and a little bit bohemian about this comfy lounge-wear. Wearing these items makes me wanna curl up with a good book and a warm mug of coffee, thankfully the coffee and books are part of the Oubliette hunt too! Both clothing items come in several sizes for easy fitting. These fun Halloween themed items will be available for hunting at Oubliette through the entire month of October. You’ll be looking for little poison bottles, and don’t forget to hunt around the grounds outside the Oubliette store as well, specifically the cemetery. Happy Hunting Fab Free!

Dress Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus)
Shoe Sizes Included: Belleza, Slink, Maitreya
