If you’re gearing up for Halloween and looking for the perfect costume… or maybe if you’re just looking to have some spooky fun… I have the perfect giftie for you! It will only cost you 1L and a little hunting time as part of the Bump in the Night Hunt! You hunt down the black crow, pay 1L (or if you don’t feel like hunting you can pay 25L at the hunt sign instead) and you get the prize!

This Scary Bedsheet Ghost avatar is the current hunt prize for the Bump in the Night Hunt at Epicine. It comes with the complete Avatar. It’s a little on the bright side in some windlight settings, but I found that it was perfect on the midnight setting and darker windlights, and most of the haunted sims are set to those.

Happy h(a)unting!

Be Careful What You Conjure, Witches!

Closetwitch
Hey there Fabulouses! You might want to get comfy and grab a coffee or something because I’m feeling a little wordy (and nerdy, but I am sure that comes through in post of my posts so I am sure you are plenty prepared for that already lol) and have news of fabulous free stuff and fun gachas to tell you about today!

Which witch are you?

Sn@tch recently released a new 7 Seas Fish For This prize called Which Witch that includes a 23 piece set that will set you up with plenty of clothing, appliers, shoes, jewelry, makeup and accessory pieces to mix and match.  I am wearing just five of the prizes in this set (booties, tights, skater skirt, floral top,  & collar), but this is just a taste of the whole thing!

You’ll need a casual 7 Seas Fishing Rod to gain access to the pond of prizes which will set you back 100L, but you can use this rod over and over again for future prizes and other ponds around the grid.  No bait is required.

Setting The Scene

Most of the items in my photograph are from the Mystic Room Décor Gacha Set that is currently featured at this round of the Cosmopolitan Sales Room event.  This machine is just 55L to play and you can score everything in my photo aside from the build, chandelier and casting circle.  Those three items are part of the Something Sinister instore gacha (50L per play) at The Hive.

Between these two gacha machines, I was ready to start conjuring, but let me tell you…  Be careful what you conjure because you never know what might rise up behind you!  Thank goodness I have him trapped in a circle.  Ever wonder what made Carson decide to come back after so long of an absence?  Now you know!  (maybe an embellished story…)

RiseupCarson
Speaking of Lucifer Carson…

His devilish look today was put together with a couple of really great finds.  His Bloody Shirt is available at The Wash Cart Sale by TIAR on sale for 10L and you can find his Pants, Wings and Shoes as a free group gift with a free group join at It’s Gau.

Now… what button do I push on this thing to send him back? 😛

Instant Hair Crush

Exile1L
Like Falling Autumn Leaves

You know what else falls this Autumn?  The price on the brand new Bento Instant Crush Hairstyle by Exile in their marketplace store – all the way down to 1L!  Their usual “all or nothing pack” price is 1250, so this is a really sweet savings.  This long pulled back hairstyle with side swept bangs includes a bento version as well as ALL the colour pack HUDS!

To Swish Or Not To Swish

The bento version is actually a lot of fun to watch swishing and moving around with my avatar, although if you prefer no movement, the regular hair is included as well.

What’s Lurking in My Bedroom?!

The Creeps_001

I’m just relaxing on my new furniture courtesy of StoraxTree and the Horror Hunt. At first glance, this 1L prize is just an innocent 4 prim bedroom set (all one piece when you set it down and with lots of great details)… but it has five  poses total, four of which are rather creepy (see below!) This bedroom set will make a neat (temporary?) Halloween addition to your home if you are into decorating and for just 1L

The Creeps_002

More Hunting

I also hunted down this Gothika Red Straps Dress at Moonstar. I really love the color and detailing and it’s a perfect fit. It comes in all the sizes you could need and all you’ll need to spend is a little time hunting as part of the Horror Romantic Hunt and 1 little Linden!

Sizes Available:

  • Fitmesh XS – L
  • TMP
  • eBody
  • Ocacin
  • Tonic – Fine & Curvy
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

The Creeps_003

New Heels

My last hunt find was also 1L and part of the Horror Romantic Hunt. I fell in love with these Italian Nights heels from Loordes of London. They fit Slink high feet and are a dream and match the dress from Moonstar perfectly. Pick these up for a little hunting time (they are super easy to find) and 1L!

Happy H(a)unting!

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!

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 :).

The White Cliffs

The White Cliffs_001

I’ve been in an “Edgar-Allan-Poe”-type-melancholy-mood lately. It led me to visit an art sim called “The White Cliffs of Dover.” It’s a fairly simple sim. It really is just a set of barren cliffs with a couple of planes, a tea shop and grasslands. Somehow, though, it is incredibly beautiful in its simplicity. I find that when I am melancholy, I crave simplicity. It helps me keep life in perspective.

Since I was in a melancholy mood, I decided to try out the Quoth the Raven Hunt and see what I came up with (hurry, the hunt ends September 30th). I visited Lunaria and hunted down the creator’s prize which is an incredibly beautiful gown… which I would argue is Edgar Allan Poe inspired. Or at least certainly Raven inspired.

The gown

The gown Branwen, by Lunaira, is a seemingly simple formal navy blue gown will a full skirt, until you take a closer look. It has an add-on feather belt and the skirt itself is covered in both texture and add-on prim feathers for a stunning and beautiful look. The overall mesh flow of the dress is superb. Hunt down the raven icon and pay just 1L for this gem of a dress to add to your wardrobe.

Sizes available:

  • Fitmesh XS – L
  • TMP
  • Slink
  • Maitreya
  • Belleza

Sweater Weather

Dog Days

Sweater Weather is Here and I Love It

Fall has officially arrived, and it seems like the weather has changed overnight. I’ll miss the warm summer days, but there’s just something exciting about crisp, cool autumn air and the changing colors of the leaves.

I picked up this shirt and sweater combo from Loordes of London as part of the I Love School Hunt. Though it’s actually meant to be worn as a dress, I decided that it was a bit too chilly out here, so I added a pair of jeans. The SL Retro Look top comes in standard mesh sizes XXS-L, as well as for Belleza mesh bodies.

The I Love School Hunt ends on September 30th, and all items are 1L.

I think it’s time for us to head inside for some hot chocolate.

Happy hunting! ❤

Zombie Suicide Temporary FREE Group Join!

Zombie Suicide 2
Hello Fab Free! I’m super excited because I recently found out Zombie Suicide has made their in world group FREE to join for just a few days. Don’t ask me how long a few day is. I have no idea, so hurry! If you’re not familiar with the Zombie Suicide brand, it’s the definition of creepy cute clothing and accessories. You’ll really find a little bit of everything including clothing, jewelry, and makeup. Zombie Suicide group members get a 25% discount on all Zombie Suicide merchandise purchased while wearing the group tag. Also, there is an entire wall of FREE group gifts, and there are group only lucky letter boards. So along with sharing the news of Zombie Suicide’s temporary FREE group join, I also want to show off a few of the many group gifts.

I Heart Cardigans

This cozy cardigan is one of the many FREE group gifts at Zombie Suicide. It’s fully mesh and includes a color change hud that will allow you to choose between the purple color shown and and a black version. The black version mirrors the purple in that it has little purple hearts above the pockets.

Mesh Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, TMP, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Standard Mesh (xxs – L)

Zombie Suicide

Two Hearts

The cute necklace with the thin heart dangles is not one of the many group gifts, but rather a dollarbie hunt prize I stumbled across while shopping at Zombie Suicide. This prize also includes a color change hud so you can choose the color of each of the 2 hearts. There are 8 color options. I’m honestly not sure what hunt this necklace is from, but the little blue basket hunt item was easy to find considering I wasn’t even looking for it. *Hint, look low.

Choker

The choker Pru is wearing is a FREE group gift version of a choker/collar you can purchase at Zombie Suicide. It comes in several mesh sizes and includes a scripted version that has resize scripts and a non scripted version. The colors are a fun combination of purple, black, and green.

Facial Piercings

These pretty purple dermal piercings combined with the two nose studs are another FREE group gift at Zombie Suicide. These fit my Catwa mesh head very easily, which is always a plus. Additionally, there are 2 versions included in this gift, one with a shadow and one without (shown).

The Eyes Have It

Last but far from least, the pretty jewel-toned eyes are another FREE group gift at Zombie Suicide. This gift comes with a color change HUD with 3 variations of these hauntingly pretty eyes. They also include classic system layers and an alpha layer for non mesh avatars.

Flowers Too.

Flowers_001

Flowers have a way of cheering me up. And I love applier clothing. And when I ran across a chance to use both in a post, I was very happy!

Dressed in Red

I was perusing the list of stores for the Addicted to Appliers Hunt and ran across JellyRoll on the list. You might remember my post here that showed you some great free gifts from that store. I just knew I had to find out what they had out as their hunt gift!

JellyRoll did not let me down! Their 5L hunt gift for the Addicted to Appliers Hunt is the beautiful red silk dress shown above. You get an omega applier that applies the top and bottom layer and then a mesh skirt panel that comes in all the standard sizes for a perfect sleek fit. It’s simply stunning!

Flowers too

NSP Florals put out an August group gift that was too pretty to pass up. If you missed it, I blogged the July group gift here. So though there is a 125L group join fee, you’ll be getting beautiful monthly group gifts to make it worth joining. This month was the Delphinium Bouquet.

In your gift package you’ll get two bouquets… one with and one without a hold animation. For my picture I used the bouquet without the animation and used a pose I already had. However, the bouquet with the hold animation is very nice and the hold animation works well with most Animation Over-rides as far as I can tell (I tried it out with several of mine including Oracul and Vista). This is a gift well worth picking up!
