Guest Blog By Geoffrey Edwardstone – ARE YOU ANTISOCIAL OR JUST AN ALIEN IN CYBERSPACE? …

One of the great things about SL is that you can always find things that are unusual or just make you laugh, and there are a couple of hunts going on this month where you can find prizes that fall in this category.  One example is the Aliens in Cyberspace Hunt (AiC) which runs during the month of May with 45 stores participating and offering free gifts for both men and women.  You can get hints and SLURLs at the hunt blog.

For starters let me show you my new shiny latex FitMesh Men’s Theless Top, the hunt gift from MadCatCreations
MCC - Fitmesh Men's Theless Top_AiC_Hunt

This top is an example of the new “fitmesh” or “liquid mesh” capability in clothing that some FabFree readers were asking about in a recent FabFree Advice column.  Creating fitmesh clothing requires a different kind of mesh file than the ones the designers are used to using, and I imagine we will be seeing a lot more of it as the designers switch over.  The best part of fitmesh is that it moves with your body.  You don’t get bits of your body poking through when you change poses like sometimes happens with traditional mesh clothing.  Sorry ladies, you won’t see any more of my gorgeous, blue-lipped alien skin as long as I’m wearing fitmesh.

Also available in the AiC Hunt are the mesh Prometheus Porter’s Jacket (pants not included) from {Reverie}.  This is a jacket that can be a staple of your wardrobe even when you’re not in cyberspace.

Reverie_AiC_Hunt

[Goddess Couture]  has not just one, but three AiC hunt prizes.  The male hunt gift there is this open mesh jacket with alien t-shirt. (pants are not included).  This cute little R2D2 robot is the unisex gift, and you can hold onto it or just use as a bit of decor.

Goddess_AiC_Hunt

Where you would you need space robot decor, you ask?  Well you’d need it in your own inter-galactic spacecraft, of course.  And where would you go to get such a spacecraft?  You’d have to find the AiC hunt prize at Steaming Ahead.  For your trouble you’ll get this giant pink bug spacecraft complete with shiny chrome legs and wings.  Roomy inside with the requisite array of dials and knobs, it seats the pilot plus three passengers, and holds a whole bunch of cargo.
Steaming Ahead_AiC_Hunt

For those more earthbound and socially inept, there is the Antisocial Web Hunt (:A.W.H:) which runs from May 1 to June 1. You can find the SLURLs and hints at the hunt website.  If sometimes wish you could just pull a brown paper bag over your head and be anonymous, the AWH has just the gift for you.  Although this hunt gift was shown earlier in another FabFree guest blog entry , I wanted to show you [geek]’s  hunt gift — the Not Here Paper Bag in an appealing shade of brown which coordinates perfectly with your entire wardrobe.   [geek] has thoughtfully provided a headset with the bag so that you can keep yourself amused while you’re trying to look inconspicuous.  I’m also wearing Gye Nyame tatoo, which is the :A.W.H: hunt gift from [Letis Tattoo] .  Personally, I’ve never found wearing body ink to be antisocial, but I’m not objecting to get a cool arm tatoo from the Antisocial Web Hunt.

Blooming Blossoms

I seem to have hit the surplus of free/cheap skins lately, so over the next few days you will be seeing many great skin finds.  The Summer tan skin was sent to the MiaSnow sub-o members a few days.  The nose on this skin is perfect and the skin tone has a very realistic look to it.

I also have lots of DRESSES to show you!!!  The sequin moss Cilla dress was sent to the a piece of candy sub-o members this evening.  The tan basic heels are only L$5 at !!Kiss Kiss Bang Bang!!.

The animal print Kaya dress is only L$10 at !!Kiss Kiss Bang Bang!!.  To complete the look grab the Black Mamba Jenette purse for only L$5!

Carson showed us the male gift for Bellissima sub-o members earlier tonight.  The ladies received the mint green Clara dress.  The gift includes two different skirt lengths, a lace and plain top, and matching shoes!

I felt a bit like Anne of Green Gables in the jade Fleur de L’ete dress from Montagne Noire.  This dress is a group gift for Montagne Noire members.

The onyx Le Merle dress is a dollarbie for a limited time at Montagne Noire!

SOMER group members can pick up the sexy Romance mini dress in the olive color.  The gift is located below the welcome sign at the main entrance.  If you’re feeling lucky try you’re luck on the lucky chair at SOMER for the thigh high stripes socks.  The Watermelon mini dress is also from SOMER and although it’s not free, I thought the dress looked ubber cute with the socks!

I also picked up the Wicked Swan cocktail dress and formal gown from Sascha’s Designs.  These dresses are not free, but I had to show them.  The dresses make a statement and there are sooo many options!  I swear next time I go dancing I’m wearing this, so watch out!

If you’re looking for something a bit less frilly, head over to Sascha’s Designs for the Tara tops in dark blue, powder blue, teal, and turquoise.  The corset tops are free in the midnight mania board.  The stonewashed jeans are coming to Aqua next week.  I hear there will be a gray version for only L$10, so be on the look out for those!

Or get even more comfy in the Bedtime Babe pjs (and bunny slippers!) in the lucky chair at Graffitiwear.

Summer Suits

There are times you still need to look your best in the summer. You can look and be cool in the group gift from G&T Creations. The Orange Jacket Suit has a summer feel but classy enough to go on a date or a business meeting. The Light Gray Aviator Shades are on the Beach Lovers Hunt at Equilibrium Design. My Black Leather Dress Shoes are a $20L find at Duh!

Snapshot_001

I found the Black/Green Pinstriped Suit in the sub-o at BELLISSIMA. The green tie and pocket-handkerchief accent give a modern take on a traditional look. This is redeliverable in the sub-o, so join up and get one for yourself.

Bellissima – Mutiny in Red

When Renee called me to get this outfit I thought how would be hard to lock down the midnight mania board since it was so late in the night, but to my surprise we got it! Just 75 slaps and we got it our prize! Piece of cake!

BELLISSIMA!

When I saw the notice for this red and black knit dress from Bellissima I knew I had to have it!  The dress is in the midnight mania board and only needs 75 slaps!  With the dress you get a plain and a red heart flowers corset, a slim and poofy skirt option, a matching beret cap (not shown), and the most adorable red and black knit heels!  The black Seppel armwarmers are from Concrete Flowers in the Shoes & Accessories Hunt.  The brunette curly belted hat hairstyle is a Shoes & Accessories Hunt gift from IrEn.

While at Bellissima try your luck for this beautiful green Holly gown.  This lucky chair prize includes the gown, gloves, matching green boots, snowflake earrings and a necklace!  The long blong Laurel hairstle is in the lucky chair at Zero Style.  The Smudge Sasha skin from Adam n Eve is not free but sooo adorable with tear stain eye makeup and scraped elbows!

BTW, there’s also an awesome male midnight mania and lucky chair prize at Bellissima so drag your men with you!  I’m pretty sure Tarsis won the midnight mania gift so we may get to see it soon!

Random Stuff

Lots to show you this morning.

Renee asked me last night, “Do you want the MM from EarthStones?”

Oh course I did, and the Inlaid Spirit necklace is so much like a piece I have in RL.. love it! The MM prize includes the entire set.

Midnigh Mania at Earthstones

A stroll around the Glance sim netted me a couple of bargains this morning.. and there was one for you too, guys!

Bellisimo fashions for guys and girls

Bellisima has this kilt for guys, and the pretty, summery dress (includes the shoes shown!) for girls. The gifts can be found just inside the door at the Glance location.

Hawk’s cool boots are from Demontik, not sure which hunt prize.. there are three of them in the shop right now.

Great deals from PureStyle and Toume Yao

The PureStyle coat on the left is a second anniversary gift, and costs 2L$ at their Glance location. The dress on the right is from Convoitise, and costs 0L$ at their Glance location.

Now, if you’re looking for something a little more risque, how about this number from UltraViolet Designs?

Manteaser, from Ultraviolet Designs

If you were wondering, it’s called Manteaser, and it’s available at the Naples Market location.
