Atom Bomb Baby

Atomic_001

I almost missed out on telling all you Fabulous readers about the Sn@tch 10th Anniversary Sale & Specials! It ends July 19th, so you still have a couple of days, and you don’t want to miss out! In addition to lots of extra ways to win free clothes, almost everything in the store (this does not include new releases, marketplace, or gift cards) is 50 – 75% off!

A Lucky, Unlucky Dip!

Extra prize winning machines have been set out at Sn@tch for this special week, including an Unlucky Dip… except that it’s lucky! It gives out a prize every single time!

I took a dive and came up with a free Sn@tch Skybox of Evil! This skybox is a Gothic skybox and is full-size and simply amazing. It even included decorating accessories such as a bed, candelabras, rugs, and a plant. The skybox itself was 81 prim, but for such a roomy and well textured skybox, that’s not bad! I took my picture in front of the window of the skybox… which was my favorite part!

New Lucky Letters!

Our wonderful Sn@tch creator has set out new Lucky Letter Board prizes and you can win lots of great prizes for free if your letter comes up! I won the Atom Bomb Baby Tank top for free when my letter came up! It comes in all the standard sizes, but I love that it is a fatpack of colors! You’ll have colors to match all your moods for free!

Matching pants!

Have you forgotten Sn@tch‘s new Freebie and Cheapie area? I had! I took a peak over there and snatched up these free Raji Floral leggings. These are mesh and come in all the standard sizes and for 0L I was able to get them in a fat-pack of colors. They matched my new free tank top too! I’m all set!

Carson, Who Stole Christmas

Blueberry - Holidays Gift - Sky Version Winter Cabin

Every Blogger down in Fab-ville liked Christmas a lot
But Carson who lived just North of Fab-ville did not!
Carson hated Christmas! The whole Christmas season!
Now, please don’t ask why. No one quite knows the reason.
It could be, perhaps, that his shoes were too tight.
It could be his head wasn’t screwed on just right.
But I think that the most likely reason of all
May have been that his heart was two sizes too small.
He hated the Bloggers, he knew what to do
He would steal their presents to make them cry boo hoo!
Then he slid down the chimney, a rather tight pinch.
But if Santa could do it, then so could this grinch.
He got stuck only once, for a minute or two.
Then he stuck his head out of the fireplace flue
Where the little Fab stockings hung all in a row.
“These stockings,” he grouched, “are the first things to go!”
Then he slithered and slunk, with a smile most unpleasant,
Around the whole room, and he took every present!
And he stuffed them in bags. Then Carson, very nimbly,
Stuffed all the bags, one by one, up the chimney.
As Carson took the tree, as he started to shove,
He saw a small dog, “I’ll take it from Love!”

 

Alter Sweater Fatpack

Just North of Fab-ville Carson did go.
With presents and goodies and the dog in tow.
But the dog didn’t whimper,
It wanted to play.
And what happened then? Well, in Fab-ville they say
That Carson’s small heart grew three sizes that day!
Maybe Christmas, he thought, doesn’t come from a store.
Maybe Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more!

(with apologies to Dr. Seuss)

Enjoying the Holiday Grind

The holiday grind has not gotten to me yet… in fact today I’m enjoying it! Gothmas style! Though I admit, I did wake up early to make pancakes. Does it count as Gothic if I made the pancakes in the shape of little bats and “colored” them with Nutella to get them to look right? I know my daughter was certainly thrilled!

Enjoying the Holiday Grind 1

Speaking of the holiday grind… the Radio Grind has everything you need for a Gothmas! Or just for a Gothic day… or steampunk (it could qualify for that with the right decor). Either way, I stopped by the Cart Sale again, and made away like a banshee!

The Radio Grind has me dressed up in style in this Storypunk Wonderland Red dress. It is mesh with lots of sizing choices to fit your avatar… and at only 10L for such fabulous details? I fell in love!

If red isn’t your thing, don’t worry! This same gorgeously detailed dress was at the cart in two other colors for the same low price, one of which was a soft floral blue, pretty enough for the spring days to come.

Enjoying the Holiday Grind 2

So it’s the holiday. Merry Gothmas and Happy Holidays (all of them) and good cheer for the New Year! Are you loving my set? Me too! Would you believe that this AMAZING skybox is only 10L at the Radio Grind cart at the Cart Wash Sale?!

The skull throne and curtain were included details from Radio Grind skybox, though I did toss down a few things of my own for this picture. You can get the Glyphic Circle by Nocturne Creations from the Marketplace for only 50L. It is animated and scripted to turn, and only 3 prim when you set it down.

I also set George out again. He joined me once before in a long ago post. My hellpup is a sweet Gacha prize you can get in store from Sweet Thing. It is just a touch over our 75L limit, but I had to share him with you! For just 80L per spin you can get a chance at this cute pup — either in holdable or the “plop” option shown. And he comes in lots of classic Gothic styles!

Enjoying the Holiday Grind 3

Last, but certainly not least, I hope you are still making all of your advent stops! Many stores are finishing off with grand finales today! My lovely little Kiss Me Holly stick pin is by Chop Zuey and is FREE with your group tag (350L to join). This advent is generous indeed in that there are 12 days of group only gifts (the group is 350L to join) with a men’s side and women’s side (so 24 gifts total there alone) PLUS an additional completely FREE advent with 12 days of FREE gifts too! And the advents for this store are open the full time so if you miss a day you can still get all the gifts. Be sure to pick them all up before they are gone!

PicMonkey5

I have been DOLLED!

Don’t I make a cute Bunny Doll.

You too can be a bunny with a 50L pull of the Pink Acid – Tea Time Bunny gatcha machine at The Seasons Story event which runs til Oct 30th. There are 3 chocolate bunny heads, 3 pink bunny heads, 2 ear head and and some tea to be won. My FREE sweet lace Sophia mocha mesh dress is the Oct group gift from Jinx. Group is FREE to join.

PicMonkey6

I’ve been DOLLED again, this time in a fashion doll version. This vintage doll box is a FREE gift til the end of Oct from DH on the Marketplace. Just like with fashion dolls there is even a comb on the side of the box to brush my hair. This store’s items are very nice quality should anything else in the shop catch you eye. I have on the same Jinx dress mentioned above. My Karin mesh hair is also at The Seasons Story and it is their 2 anniversary so many stall have FREE gifts. My hair is the FREE gift from the DUE stall. The mesh Velvet Bow however is separate but can also be found for FREE at The Seasons Story at the Fawny stall. They work well together and of course work well as separates.

PicMonkey7

Any good fashion DOLL comes with add ons. Maai came thru with a new FREE group gift, group is FREE to join, for the Glimmer doll with this lovely Ivana lingerie Black. It comes with system layers and as always Maai has given plenty of appliers including Omega, TMP and slink. In B flick horror movie fashion, I am asking the silly question “hmmm should I be standing here in the haunted house with blood on the walls in my lingerie”? If I turn up dead it was the Psycho Killer with the chainsaw I ran towards ROFL. I found this Candy cloud: spooky mansion skybox 15LI on the Marketplace for FREE. It even has lightening. I used it in Pic 2 also.

Now this DOLL is heading to her Dream House, be DOLLICIOUS everyone!

Guest Blog by Gloria Silverstone – Twisted Victorian Gothic

See the Original Post here – Twisted Victorian Gothic

POSTED ON OCTOBER 9, 2015

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!

Taxi to Finishing Touches please…

I love medieval and Fantasy styles, if y’all didn’t already know that. So when I saw C&N Designs gorgeous ‘Eluthiel’ Dress, I knew I needed it! I love the quilted details and the golden ribbon wraps.

Feeling sexy in my Filthy teese!

Hey fabbies! So, through a fun little series of events, I found a new-to-me shop called “Filthy Teese“, which specializes in really cute cropped tees that come with appliers for your boobies. Being a huge lover of boobies myself, I snagged a bunch of different tees, a few of which are on sale for just $L49, and combined them with accessories from the Manga fair, as well as a great pair of latex pants, which are on one of the riots this week at Sn@tch!
