On the hunt for… various things.

Flower Power_001

I must have taken a wrong turn in Amsterdam somewhere. I ended up in this salvage yard while I was trying to hunt down Gavin to tell him that Serena had gone out for a horseback ride in the country. I was sure it was just down that street there but sure enough I ended up here on the wrong side of town in front of a van that looks like its straight out of a Scooby Doo cartoon. Not that I mind sight seeing mind you. I’m still trying to find Gavin. I think he went shopping for Friday deals. I wonder if he got anything good?

Hunting for other things instead…

For now I’ve given up the hunt for Gavin. That guy is just on his own. I did manage to hunt down some sweet deals of my own though! I happen to love St. Patrick’s Day, mainly because it’s a good excuse to wear green. So I was checking out all the monthly hunts and ran across the Luck of the Irish Hunt and scored a really cute tank top at Ambient for just 1L! It has cute lace trim around the hem and the neckline and comes in several mesh sizes.

Shirt Sizes available:

  • Classic XXS – L
  • TMP
  • Hourglass & Physique
  • Maitreya
  • Freya, Isis, & Venus
  • eBody
  • Tonic Curvy & Fine

OOOOoooo Don’t forget!

I joined the Vision Vip Group a while back for 250L. Now this might seem steep for a group join, but every month I visit the store and pick up my 100L in-store credit (plus I get access to the lucky letter boards that change out monthly too… I just happened to snag a shirt off one of those boards while I was there, and I might show that off in another post). So I had saved up my credit for the last two months and had 200L to spend.

I picked up this cute little black mini skirt that was only 199L and it didn’t cost me a single penny since I had my in-store credit. Plus I got the cute shirt I mentioned off the lucky letter board! For that one time fee, your monthly in-store credit adds up over time, making it worth joining, plus those lucky letter boards, woooo hoo!

Crank It

Crank It

The weekend may be coming to a close, but I’m milking every little bit of fun out of it that I can.  Aline is the type of girl who shows up in a bodysuit and thigh highs yelling “crank it up”, and we’re all just along for the ride.  I found all sorts of freebies to match her no holds barred attitude.

This Body Suits Me

I nipped into Aphrodite and my eye settled upon this interesting bodysuit with lacing up the back.  I particularly enjoy the little peekaboo hearts down the front – my tattoo peeks through!  Fun.  You can pick up this pretty little number by joining the Aphrodite group for free!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique

Boom!

As I strutted my way around the grid, I realised that my Second Life wouldn’t be complete without a pair of thigh highs.  Lucky for little ole me and you, Belle Époque knows that too, and they have updated their Fab Free group gift recently to these AMAZING boots.  I seriously love every minute of them.  The colour is to die for.  You can grab them by joining the Fab Free inworld group for free!  Oh, also as I walked up to the entrance of the store, I passed the lucky boards, and saw these flowers to adorn my mane – no group join required to pick these up, making these delicate buds completely free!

Just keep strutting, friends!

What’s in a cemetery?

Graveyard Presence_001

“What could you possibly hope to find in a cemetery?” The women said. “The dead tell no secrets and the living seldom come to visit them.”
― Felix Alexander, The Last Valentine

Many of my characters have roleplayed in cemeteries for various reasons. There is mystery and intrigue there. There is always a story to be had in a cemetery! Or someone’s story at least. When I put this roleplay outfit together for you, I immediately though… cemetery! And went to take a picture. But enough of the roleplay memories and onto the gifts!

Stop by for a treat!

Bluemoon Enterprise has out a great free roleplay outfit for February. Be sure to pick it up before the month is out. You’ll need the free to join Bluemoon group tag to pick it up. This Celtic Breeze outfit includes the pants, a skirt, the bracers, the top and the hood. The hood has a feature that allows you to wear it either up or down (I choose to wear the hood down) and the outfit comes in a single fitmesh size that I had no trouble making fit my Maitreya body.

Bluemoon Enterprise is housed inside of The White Armory. When you arrive at the entrance, go inside and then head to the Bluemoon store inside the large main-store building of The White Armory. You’ll find the Celtic Breeze gift inside of the smaller Bluemoon Building.

Another YM Gift

I showed you a group gift from the YM Shop in my post [Here] but there were so many on the wall that I picked up more than one. Among the free gifts I picked up with my free group join were the Beka boots. I discovered that these boots, although certainly suitable for modern wear, had a definite roleplay feel, and paired with my roleplay outfit from Bluemoon just perfectly.

  • These boots include a color change hud to change 4 different parts of the boots with 46 color options for each as well as 4 metal options for the rivets.
  • Sizes include: Slink Physique, Slink Hourglass, Mesh XXS – L

I hope you enjoy these gifts and happy roleplaying!

Rebel Yell

Rebel Yell

In the midnight hour she cried, more, more, more
With a rebel yell she cried, more, more, more

Billy Idol said it best, if you ask me, as he sneered angrily into his microphone and spiked his bleached-blonde hair up.  I may not be wearing the ripped vests and fingerless gloves of Billy’s era, but I’m still serving up some 80’s rebel realness today (for free)!

Scream Queen

I picked up my look today at Rebel Yell, where they have two group gifts out right now – these jeans with amazing boots attached, as well as the top I’m wearing, which is cropped in the front, and long in the back – a cool twist. The top comes sized for Hourglass, Maitreya and Freya.  You can grab these two gifts by joining the Rebel Yell group for free!  That makes my 80’s child heart happy.

Sizes for Pants

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Physique

And Still Pr!tty

I also picked up a free fatpack of hair by joining the Pr!tty inworld group for free.  If you check in notices you will find the Valentina hair, but you may want to rush and grab it because it will most likely cycle out of there quite soon!  I’ve been a fan of Pr!tty for a while, and was well chuffed when I found this freebie!  Hop to it!

I should probably stop watching post-apocalyptic 80’s music videos now…right?

NAH!

The animal inside.

Embrace_001

“The moon is a loyal companion. It never leaves. It’s always there, watching, steadfast, knowing us in our light and dark moments, changing forever just as we do. Every day it’s a different version of itself. Sometimes weak and wan, sometimes strong and full of light. The moon understands what it means to be human. Uncertain. Alone. Cratered by imperfections.” ~ Tahereh Mafi, Shatter Me

The first full moon of 2018…

… was January 2nd. And I think it brought out the animal in me. Not necessarily in a bad way… but in a “I’m ready to roar into 2018” way. And when my hunting buddy told me he’d been scouting out the Sex Up Your Party Hunt, I was a bit skeptical as I heard the name of the hunt. And more skeptical when I heard what the hunt icon was that he was looking for (yes it’s very naughty!).

But if you hunt down the little pink… ahem… icon… at Artic Storm, pay just 2L for it… you’ll be rewarded with this leopard print lingerie (sexy boots included) that is sure to bring the animal out in you too. And maybe that full moon wasn’t such a bad thing after all.

Mesh bodies supported:

  • Classic XXS – L
  • Fitmesh
  • TMP
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

It’s December! It’s December!

Santas Workshop_001

It’s December, it’s December! And I decided to visit Santa’s workshop and check out what the elves are up to. I caught this cute little red-headed one making and wrapping up toys already and I couldn’t help but get in on the fun. And I found some great gifts of my own to share with you too!

More POE!

The other bloggers have already shown you POE gifts galore and I picked up these fabulous Wedge Boots in Red for free by Roped Passions as part of the hunt. They are unrigged mesh so they work with any body, you just need to hide your feet. I really love them and they are so versatile! They have just enough sheen to them to make them really sexy!

Speaking of Sexy…

If you haven’t checked out the Sexy Christmas Hunt, you should. For just 1L I picked up this Tartan Bralet from Trashed as part of that hunt. It’s a cute little number that I just fell in love with. It comes in several sizes to make it worth your while. I have a Maitreya body, but found that the Medium size fit me just perfectly.

Bralet sizes available:

  • Classic S – M
  • TMP
  • eBody
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, and Venus

Top it off

I knew I needed a hat, even though I was inside the cozy workshop. So I picked up this cute one off of marketplace by Hungry Cats. It was only 10L and there were four hat colors included in the package, making this even a more special deal for your linden. It was modifiable, so I darkened the red just a bit to match my outfit and yay I was done!

Happy December to everyone!

The Lady is a Vamp

The Lady is a Vamp

Sometimes I feel a bit vampy, and it calls for red hair and a whole lotta latex.  When I get into this mood, there’s only one place to go – D’eVil!  The best thing about these high-gloss items is the fact that they’re completely free! 

The D’eVil Inside

D’eVil is a special little shop that is quite small, but crams a heck of a lot of really great clothes, boots and other interesting finds inside.  I remember being completely shocked when I walked through the door to see that everything in the store is 100% free.  Yes, you read that right.  The owner, Dariana, says that she has “nothing to sell, only to give away” because “having someone smile is the greatest thing in the world”.   Well, I sure did smile looking around the store.  There are several dresses, different kids of shoes, and a few adult-themed items, all priced at 0L.

Shine on, You Crazy Diamond

In the photo above, I am wearing the Jani dress, which has several versions inside the box, all in different transparency rates.  If you’re feeling daring, that is! It also comes in leather, for days where you want a bit more coverage.  This dress is a Maitreya Lara exclusive.    The Via boots are quite versatile, you could even wear them with an oversized sweater for a unique look.  They come with a texture HUD so you can choose from many colours to match your outfit or mood!  There is also a leather version included in the box.  These are also a Maitreya Lara exclusive.   The texturing on the clothes really is top notch, and sometimes I catch myself staring at the shine!

Well, there you have it Fab Free – get out there and get your shine on!

Fab Free Designer Friday – 10/20/2017 – Baby Monkey

Baby Monkey Exterior
Happy Friday Fab Free! I’ve been lucky, my weekend started early which means more time for my Fabulously Free in SL family. It also means I had a little extra time to check out this weeks designer of the week, Baby Monkey. The Baby Monkey shop is probably best known for their shoes, however they also have quite a bit of ladies and some mens fashion, and accessories. You may recall seeing their most recent Fabulously Free in SL exclusive group gift in Astrid’s post “Paradise and Leaves.” More on that in a moment. The Baby Monkey shop has a nice, easy to navigate store with a pretty center courtyard. I like this shop setup up quite a bit because it’s easy to use your camera to see where you are and where you want to go next.

In what you could call the main part of the store you’ll see a desk with a few little FREE gift bags sitting on it. These fun little freebies are FREE to everyone. Each of the 4 bags has something interesting or useful for anyone, such as an ankle lock, or tummy takers, one even has a ton of recipes inside. Next to the desk is a teleporter that lets you jump to an individual department for easy shopping. Also in this same room you’ll find the Baby Monkey group gifts. The Baby Monkey group is just 20 lindens to join at this time and there are current and previous group gifts available.
Baby Monkey Gifts
In addition to the numerous Baby Monkey group gifts, you’ll also find a few other group gifts, including the previously mentioned Fab Free exclusive gift. Remember, the Fab Free gift requires the Fab Free group tag, the Fab Free group is always FREE to join. Needless to say the Baby Monkey shop has something for everyone, and for just about any occasion. Don’t miss out on these great freebies and cheapies! Happy weekend and have fun shopping!

Twisted Huntress

Wasteland_001

I’ve been able to bring you several roleplay posts lately… and it’s been a lot of fun to be able to do so. I have managed to put together an outfit today that is almost entirely free, expect for the pants and it would go great in a post apocalyptic setting, a sci-fi setting, or even a medieval fantasy setting.

It’s so twisted

The twisted hunt is on… with all its twisted cubes. It’s arguably one of the most difficult hunts on the grid, but it’s also one of the most rewarding with its excellent free gifts.

Roped Passions has a history of getting in on the action and this round is no different. The creator is giving away a main prize as well as 6 side prizes and will also have out a riot vendor as well this time around.

The main prize

You’ll want to hunt down this free Revenge Huntress Jacket as the main prize for the Twisted Hunt at Roped Passions! It’s a great piece for any sort of roleplay as I mentioned before and comes in crimson and black. It’s fully mesh and exposes the top of some cleavage without being overdone.

Shirt Sizes Available:

  • Standard mesh XS – L
  • TMP
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Boots too

One of the side hunt gifts at Roped Passions is the free pair of Vex Kreepers in Crimson Boots. They seem to be unrigged mesh and I found that by putting them on and then hiding my Maitreya feet they fit just perfectly. I think they would be adjustable to most mesh bodies. They are highly detailed and well made and as a side gift are free with a little extra hunting time.

Strike a Pose

I’d put together a roleplay outfit not too long ago in my post here when I visited the Imaginarium event. While I was there I also picked up a free pose from Dahila that you see in the picture above. It seemed to strike the perfect mood for my roleplay gear so I added it to my post. It would make a nice addition to a photographer’s inventory!

Wasteland_002

Details, details

Roped Passions has out 6 total free side gifts as part of the Twisted Hunt. I’m only showing you 3 in this post. The other 3 were just as amazing. You’ll want to find them all! Pictured above is the free Crimson Unisex Crown as well as the free Twisted Victorian Hunters Mask, each of which is a side gift that you can get for free by hunting for that twisted cube around the Roped Passions main-store.

If you hunt some more, you’ll also find a Gothic alter (not shown), a Snarky Cube (not shown), and Gothic Mushrooms (not shown). All these prizes are fantastic and definitely worth the hunt!
