Fields of Gold

Snapshot_001Good day Fabulous Readers!  Have you heard about The Good Gorean Hunt?  Full on gorean wear is not my usual fashion, but I do like to take little bits of fashion from different style categories and add them to my usual look for a change.  I really like how it turned out today!

When I heard that The Good Gorean Blog was celebrating five years and was hosting a free hunt, I checked out the hunt prizes and there are several items that I quite liked!  In my photos, I am wearing the Alethea Gown that I picked up at Posh Tales for The Good Gorean Hunt.   It comes with a texture change hud that allows for a ton of different colour options as well as you can wear or remove the cape.  This is a fitmesh creation and comes with an alpha layer if you need it, so it should fit on whatever body you are in whether it be system or one of the mesh bodies.

I also made a stop to Aisling and looked for the hidden “G” icon and was pleasantly surprised that it was a beautiful jewelry set called Alyse.  Alyse includes the necklace shown as well as a pair of matching earrings that are unfortunately hidden in my hair :/.  I promise they are just as lovely as the necklace and WAY worth the time it takes to find the hunt icon :).

The Devil Inside

The Devil Inside

One of the things I like the most about Second Life is the ability to change your appearance at will. Today I was feeling a little bit more sinister, a little more goth than usual. Thankfully I’ve come across a few items that let me show off that darker side without breaking the bank. Now I get to share them with you!

It all started with this fun little “in store” hunt going on at FormaNails. I say “in store” but really, all the hunt objects are hidden outside on the grounds surrounding the store. Before I get into the hunt prize, I want to tell you a little about the hunt its self. I really enjoyed this one. Outside the FormaNails main shop you’ll see a small display where you can get a FREE hud. This hud needs to be worn with permissions granted to complete the hunt. There are 10 hidden objects to be found throughout the grounds. The hud I mentioned keeps track of which items you have found and which ones you’re still hunting for. Cool, huh?! The objects themselves will teleport to a new location once they’ve been “found”. So you may come across the same object a second time. Once the hud shows you’ve found all 10 objects, you return to the display outside the main store and click inside the phone booth. Then the folder with the hunt prize will be delivered to you. I have to say, what made this hunt so fun is that the grounds are really whimsical and interesting to explore. There are lots of imaginative things to do and see, I even bungee jumped while hunting!

The FormaNails FREE hunt gift is a set of bejeweled brass knuckles. The detailed set is unisex in that it includes a male and a female version, also both sets come in gold, and in silver. The female version is set with little rubies and pearls, while the male set has iron crosses and skulls. The knuckles are worn on one hand, and are able to be sized via touch menu. Though the knuckles did not appear to have been made to fit a specific set of hands, I was able to adjust them to suit my Maitreya Lara hands with some re-sizing and some manual re-positioning. After seeing the knuckles from FormaNails,  knew I wanted to do something a little bit goth and perhaps playful, then I saw one of the gifts from a shop called This is Wrong and knew exactly the look I was going for.

This lace neck corset by This is Wrong is really beautiful on. It comes in 3 colors for the boning, black, green, and red, each with black lace. This FREE gift fit my Maitreya Lara body without any adjustments, which was a pleasant finding. The group for This is Wrong is FREE to join as well, making this lovely gift absolutely FREE. Wear your group tag and purchase the item for zero lindens. There are also several other cute group gifts to be had at This is Wrong, don’t miss out!

Next, just the right the finishing touch! Stix is participating in The Sinister Goth’s “Sinner’s Hunt Gluttony”. This is a FREE hunt, and there are no groups or huds needed. The FREE hunt prize Stix has out is this hauntingly beautiful eye makeup set. The gift includes 5 variations of this wild smoky eye. Each version has an Omega applier, and a matching classic system layer. I tried on all 5 versions, and they are a must have for any goth girl, even if you’re only goth part of the time like me!

Here are the details, have fun, and Enjoy!

Casual Friday on Monday

Snapshot_001Good evening Fabulouses! Before I head offline for the night, I have a couple of group offers to share with you, and a sweet deal too.

My Teya Jeans and Sweater which are made by Evani, can be found at this round of The Dressing Room for 70L each in a variety of colours.  The knit texturing on the sweater is fantastic and the ripped knees in the jeans are super cool because they come with a texture change hud that allows you to match up your knees with the rest of your body.

N-Core put out these sexy little ankle boots today as a free group gift for their inworld VIPs (50L to join)!  These boots are compatible with Maitreya, Belleza, Slink, TMP and N-Core feet.
Snapshot_002Make sure to swing by Besom and join their free inworld group so that you can give their group midnight mania board a slap.  This Hannu hairstyle is available as a free MM Board prize for group members only in a whole fatpack of colours.  The goal is 360 slaps, which is pretty high – but if we allllll  slap that darn board we’ll lock it down!

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!

Season of The Witch

Snapshot_003

Yep, it’s the season of the witch, and it’s straaaange – so strangeeee (love that song!!).

While I was falling asleep to the Dark Shadows movie for the third time this past weekend, it got me excited that October was drawing near and there would be a ton witch inspired clothing and accessories to snag in Second Life. I so wanted to love this movie because it had A. Johnny Depp, and B. vampires and witches, but it just made me fall asleep despite those two awesome movie factors.  Anyways, the soundtrack was fantastic and spooky and inspired me to put together the look I am wearing today.

You can find the mesh Spooky Tank in a fatpack of colours and the black velvet mini skirt as a free lucky board prize at Sn@tch.  There are actually eight lucky boards and they are open to all – no need to join the group to take advantage of their LB prizes 😉

Enjoy your evening, I’m off to pick up every stitch!

Old School

untitled
Happy Friday everyone 🙂 I am stopping by the blog today to share news with you about the current Sn@tch Fishing Prize!  Right now you can fish for the 21 piece Back To School Set that includes five mesh skirts, four mesh sweaters, socks, shoes lipgoss and freckles.  One of the things that I like about these fishing prizes at Sn@tch is that they are so versatile.  You can mix and match and toss in your own additions as well.  I am wearing the BTS black sweater vest, the bow and  the grey skirt today, but you can see the whole collection in their vendor ad below.  You will need to have the 7Seas Fishing Rod to fish for these items which can be purchased right in the 7Seas Vendor at Sn@tch.  It will set you back 100L, but you can use it for future fishing prizes – one time fee.    These fishing prizes switch out every couple of weeks!  No bait is required.
snatchfishingWith Halloween coming up next month, I also wanted to mention that DRD is offering a free gift of decorative Mystery Mansion Cob Webs at The Arcade Gacha that look amazing with their Mystery Mansion Gacha Set, although you could use them in any old skeery house!  These webs come in a pack of four different shapes.

The Draw to Enchantment

“Do you hear the call of the waves below?
Or the way the fishes move in the flow?
To Sea! To Sea! The Seagulls do caw.
From somewhere she answers…
She answers their call.
Can you see the foam layered on sand?
Or feel the way it creeps up your hand?
Her curls shine…Shine bright in the sun.
She smiles and dances…
She dances for fun.
She’s ready to share her treasure with you.
Though you’ll need to find it.
Before the others do.”
[Poem courtesy of the Enchantment Hunt]

The Draw of Enchantment [1]

I’ll be honest… I’m not one for hunts. (I’m one of those people who has a terrible time finding where I last left my glasses in real life, let alone finding a hunt item in SL!) But this Hunt drew me in the minute I saw the amazing line up of designers and the gorgeous gifts, and I knew I had to share it with you! Especially as every one of these hunt gifts are FREE. Just find the little purple shell, click it, and viola! You’ve found your prize!

The theme of the Enchantment Hunt is little mermaid. I found you a simply amazing mesh tail for only 50L at The Muses that works great with the mesh Maitreya Lara body (which is what I have) as well as system bodies (you can see the tail in the picture above.) The Muses sells their tail in two styles — Ianthe or Ondine and you can get either style in an amazing array of colors from either their Marketplace store or their in-world store. I admit to grabbing mine from the Marketplace simply for the convenience.

The shot above is also a great view of half of the gift you’ll find if you stop by .aisling. as you swim through this great hunt. Their gift composed of two parts: a pose and a prop. The picture above gives you a clear shot of the pose… the siren or mermaid reaching out to draw in her prey… the picture below gives you a good picture of the second half of .aisling’s. gift — a stunning dagger with an intricately detailed hilt for you to hold.

The Draw of Enchantment [2]

The Hunt includes 23 amazing stops — far too many for me to showcase in one post. But I tried to hit several to give you an idea of just how amazing these gifts really are. This skin by Lumae called Adore – Eione // Anemone (notice the amazing details with the scales on the skin?!) came with every applier imaginable, as well as different color brow options and was also part of the Hunt.

My tiara is an Enchantment Hunt gift courtesy of PurpleMoon Creations and when I stumbled upon it, I fell in love — not just with the detailing and style but with the thoughtfulness of the creator who added a color-change hud! There are 12 gem color options and 5 metal options!

My mesh pearls and sexy star seashell modesty breast covers are an Enchantment Hunt gift from [Glitzz] and just as generous as the other gifts as they included an easy to use resize script that made them easy to fit to my avatar’s shape. I loved that I did not have to modify my avatar to fit these items, but instead I could modify these items to fit my avatar.

Last but not least — it’s not a hunt item, but I found a fabulous gift from you from Alice Project! They have put out a promo on the marketplace as a FREE gift for customers called Summertime Sadness in a special set of Mini Medley colors. I chose this lovely pastel pink to complete my look, but there were lots of great colors on the hud. And as always, this mesh style from Alice project is just breathtaking!

Red Rose

Rose Red

Hello Fab Free’rs! I have to tell you that I’ve been quite inspired lately, and I’m very pleased with the result. It’s amazing what a single conversation can spark within your imagination! Further inspiration for this sinister gothic lolita look came from the dress. This highly detailed mesh dress is a Marketplace special by an up-and-coming designer. The Antimon shop is currently on the Marketplace only, and you’ll find several items all within this playful goth genre. You’ll find this dress by Antimon for just 50 lindens on the Marketplace.

With this demon dolly look cultivating in my mind, the latest group gift from Besom (formerly Soonsiki) was a perfect fit! The blunt doll-like bangs and thick locks of this hairstyle compliment the look perfectly. This hairstyle from Besom is a FREE group gift, and the group is currently FREE to join. This cute style comes in a complete fatpack of color options, along with an additional version for bustier avatars.

As I’m sure you’ve noticed, I’ve been rather attached to my Lelutka heads, I often switch between Stella and Aria. Considering my love for changing up my look, I’ve been excited to find some fun makeup appliers for the Lelutka heads. These ombre lips are one of the several variations available on a lipstick hud by Jack Spoon. I found this particular set on the Marketplace for just 75 lindens.
