I have mentioned before that November is prime Hunting season if you are looking for clothes to fill your wardrobe. And one of my favorite stores for lingerie and intimate apparel has joined in the Hunts, by offering a 1L gift as part of the Master’s of Style Hunt.

Hunting time…

For just 1L and a little hunting time down at the House of Ruby main-store, these Polkadot briefs can be yours to add to your ever expanding wardrobe, gentlemen.

What do you get?

If you’re worried about rather or not this gift will fit you, never fear. I have all the details. You’ll be getting the following layers:

  • Layer for system avatars
  • Slink Hud for mesh bodies
  • Omega Hud for mesh bodies

More hunts?

I wasn’t finished for the day though. I had one more hunt I wanted to finish up with for the evening. If you haven’t been checking out all the goodies in store for you with the Menstuff Hunt, do hurry. It ends November 30th, and you won’t want to miss out.

I stopped by Glint and picked up their 1L prize, which is this red crystal necklace for men. It is resizable and nicely detailed and added a terrific finishing touch to what I was wearing.

Until next time!

Hello, once again dear Readers and welcome to the second edition of Edi’s Costume Ideas. I know, I know it’s probably not the snazziest of segment names but let’s get down to business, shall we? Today I bring to you the fantastically flowery Day of the Dead corset. This dramatic outfit is the new group gift from BlueMoon Enterprise and one that you can snap up for free just by joining the group. There is no sign-up fee so all you have to do is click and enjoy! With its color scheme of deep reds and blacks, this outfit is certain to be eye-catching.

I love the wonderful extras that come along with this gift. Together with the mesh corset, you will receive mesh garters, a mesh lace necklace, and panties just to name a few for starters. Aside from the panties, which comes in only system layers the corset, garters and necklace come in five standard mesh sizes (XXS-L). Don’t worry about anything poking out though as both the corset and necklace come with spiffy alpha layers. Now comes the fun part, as you can choose to wear the outfit as is or add a bit of flowery flair to it using the different flower attachments that can be found in the package. Points of attachments are the waist, neck, and hair (not pictured) and you can mix and match to your heart’s content.

If by any chance the outfit is not already dramatic enough for you, you can add the waist sash and the train. In this age of mesh that we all live our Second Lives in I must admit that I don’t have a lot of flexi things in my inventory but the train is so much fun and I love the way it moves and swishes behind you.

To tie the whole look together I put on the White Stag mask from Hextraordinary that you can get by playing the store’s gacha machine at the Salem macabre market and gacha gallows. It’s 50L per play and there are so many great masks up for grabs. I’ll probably be heading over again just to see if I can win one of the rare ones! And speaking of gacha, the hair pictured is from Analog Dog’s latest offering at The Epiphany. I’m a lover of odd colors and tints for hair and was very pleased that this one comes with a number of different highlights.

However, if you don’t feel like wearing a mask, the Day of the Dead outfit comes with its own makeup layer. It’s aptly named Sugar Skull and it’s eye-popping colors stand out even if, like me, you’d like to hide in the shadows for a while.

Well! I’m off to see if there are other costumes to sniff out. Wish me luck and I’ll catch you later!

Catch Me in Your Dreams

Catch Me In Your Dreams

More and more amazing designers are offering amazing group gifts for the FabFree Group at their in-world stores. House of Ruby has now offered up a fashionably sexy gift for us fellas that gentlemen will want to get in on. These Torn Boxers for Him come in system layers as well as Slink or Omega Huds. You also get two versions… the “mesh” version I’m showing in the picture above, or the slightly riskier “clear” version that I’m not showing😉

To pick up this generous FREE gift, simply join the Fabulously Free Group by copying and pasting secondlife:///app/group/020fa7af-444d-f54f-01e2-557ec06315fd/about into local chat. When the link for the group comes up, click it and choose join. Then teleport to House of Ruby and pick up your FREE gift.

Pixel Box is also currently hosing a FREE in-store Group Gift hunt. What does this mean? It means there are 4 group gifts set out that are FREE to group gift members. Join the Pixel Box group FREE, wander around the store and find the gifts and they are yours FREE. I’m sporting the Gothic dreamcatcher necklace in the picture above. I’m pretty sure it’s meant for a female avatar but I discovered that with the resize option, it’s very versatile and manages to be nicely unisex. I found it made a nice match to my new House of Ruby briefs. The other gifts at Pixel Box were just as nice, and included both ladies and gents, and you can’t go wrong with FREE.

It’s Spooktacular…

It's Spooktacular.... 2

Right now if you head to Swank events you can participate in the Spooktacular Goth Hunt (there’s a haunted house at the event to visit too). Loki and I hunted around and picked up the matching FREE lingerie set at the House of Ruby booth in Slink or Omega appliers for mesh bodies. Just go to the booth and look for the little black rose, buy it for 0L and unpack and you’re all set for a special evening.

I paired my lingerie set with the Fabulously Free Group Gift from Beloved Jewelry. This pretty gold and blue diamond drop necklace and earring set was a perfect touch to finalize my sexy look. It’s classic jewelry and would be lovely with any style of outfit. Think casual to gown to wedding… you wouldn’t have to wear lingerie of course.

Just join the Fabulously Free group in world by pasting secondlife:///app/group/020fa7af-444d-f54f-01e2-557ec06315fd/about in local and then clicking the link to join.

Teleport to Beloved Jewelry and pick up your FREE gift wearing your FabFree group tag.

It's Spooktacular...

As I mentioned before, Loki also stopped by Swank with me and picked up the hunt gift from House of Ruby. The men’s FREE gift is these glittery briefs in red which come in a Slink or Omega applier hud.

Loki paired his FREE briefs with an equally nice piece of FREE jewelry from Chop Zuey. Not long ago, he showed you one of the group gifts [HERE], but you can get the Gibraltar necklace in gold for FREE as a FREE to all gift for Fabfree members courtesy of Chop Zuey, no group required. As mentioned before, this necklace is resizeable, so though it is meant for men, it would make a nice ladies necklace too.

Feathers and lace

Feathers and lace

One of the things I love about Second Life is that just about every style of clothing can be found here. From bohemian to preppy to exotic, you’ll really be spoiled for choice. I’ve discovered that you can get away with wearing just about anything and everything in this ‘paper doll’ world of ours and the icing on the cake is that there’s a chance that it could be free. One such example of exotic is the Angel Corset from Glitter that you can snap up just by being in the Fabulously Free in SL group. Membership is free and all you have to do is paste the following link into local chat in your SL viewer and by clicking the link when it appears in local: secondlife:///app/group/020fa7af-444d-f54f-01e2-557ec06315fd/about

Once you’ve secured a nice and comfy spot in this awesome group, head on down to Glitter and grab the gift. The Angel Corset comes in five mesh sizes (XS-XL) and includes mesh panties that come in five sizes (XS-XL) as well. There is a very good alpha layer for both so you don’t have to worry about anything poking through. With its subtle nude tones and peekaboo front, this sultry corset is a must for your lingerie collection.

Feathers and lace backview

My favorite aspect of this corset is the beautiful detailing of the tail feathers. Coupled with the frills, bows, and soft ribbon detailing of the halter neck strap, the tail feathers certainly add a romantic feel to the whole outfit.

The blonde updo I’m wearing in the picture is from Clawtooth that is having a 50% sale on all of its hair packs till the 10th of this month.  The store has a wide range of beautiful hairstyles and the owner has listed their reason for having the sale here. Shopping and supporting a good cause is a great mix don’t you think?

I Have A Song To Sing

Snapshot_003Guess what FabFree?! Addams has two brand new releases…. and … one of them is a fatpack of colours given out as a free group gift!

Addams released their new Rebecca Bodysuit in Maitreya, Belleza, Slink and TMP mesh sizing along with a hefty 13 option texture change HUD that allows you to change the colour of the bodysuit and laces as well as turn the bottom off if you wish to wear just the top.  The Addams inworld group is free to join and there are plenty of other gifts to pick up as well, such as the items previously shown on FabFree:

I purchased their second new release for 199L (which is the Flora Flare Jeans) as well because it was a great price and looks super hot with the bodysuit.  It features a serious killer butt too…  try a demo and see for yourself!

Make Me

Make Me

I’m feeling lazy this morning so I stayed in for a soak. Luckily I have the perfect hunt if you don’t feel like teleporting around to different shops. Have you tried the Marketplace Hunt yet? I found this gorgeous bodysuit from Alpha Female that I had to share with you. It’s called “Make Me” and after putting it on, you certainly can’t make me take it off this morning😉

A little hunting on the marketplace and 5L is all this bodysuit will cost you. You’ll get a system layer as well as appliers for Maitreya, Belleza, and Slink mesh bodies. It’s a well made outfit in black and gold for a classic look.

Be sure to hurry, this hunt ends tomorrow, August 28th!

Your Friday Hunt Report

openhighwayhuntGood Morning Fabulous Fans! The end of summer isn’t far off, but there’s still time to participate in some super hunts.

Too tired to actually run around in Second Life? You might want to try the Marketplace Hunt. It takes place entirely on the Marketplace. You just have to look through each online store to find the item that’s only L$5. With 44 stops, that’s a lot of very reasonable shopping.

I love road trip movies, so I’m planning to go out on the Open Highway Hunt. It’s a tiny little hunt with only nine stops, so it should only take about an hour.

If those don’t get you excited, there are plenty of other hunts to choose from. Click the hunt names below until you find the one that’s just right for you.

You say you’re new to hunting? Need help learning the ropes?
Both FabFree and HUNT SL have pages full of tips to help you get going. I recommend them to novice and veteran hunters alike.
