Mysterious and Spooky

Mysterious and Spooky

I think I may have recovered from the weekend finally, and I’ve got myself pulled together in a prim and proper outfit that brings out a bit of my dark side…

Wednesday’s Child

I found a shop that’s new to me called Livid.  It’s my kinda shop, filled with witchy curiosities – both in furniture and clothing.  I was quite excited to find that they’ve got a whole bunch of group gifts out!  I picked up the Wednesday Addams dress, which is so sweet with it’s Peter Pan collar.  There are three versions available in the box, but I went for the classic black and white look.  I also happened to pick up this Peacock backed chair at the store, and I must say, it is super comfy!  You can grab these gifts (and several more) by joining the Livid group for 25L.  The dress comes in sizes XS – XL with an alpha layer for added convenience!

Now, if you’ll excuse me, Cara Mia…I must go tend to my roses…

The Chair…

Braver than you Believe_001

I stopped by to visit my friend, the one I mention frequently and who’s furniture I envied in my post {HERE}. (I’m pretty sure you can still get that table and screen and decor if you’re a member of the L’Homme group by the way.) And he had out a chair that I had to try out. Then he informs me he got it as a free gift at an event where almost every booth has a free gift out! Of course I demanded a shopping excursion. Was it too much that I asked him to hold my purse? (Good thing I don’t usually carry a purse in Second Life).

The Chair…

So we made our way to “Shop ‘Till You Drop” and I ooo’ed and ahhh’ed at all the displays of wonderful shopping pleasures. I picked up free gifts as my shopping buddy hemmed and hawed (because of course he’d already been there and got all the goods).

But he was patient and I got my much awaited free gift chair by Chic Buildings! It has seven great poses and is low prim too! I’m showing off the pose called “monkey” in the picture above. You don’t even need a group for the free gifts at the event. Just buy the gifts that are out for 0L!

Another POE gift!

Serena showed you a gorgeous free POE Hunt gift from Prism in her post {HERE} but there are two (yes two!) POE Hunt gifts at Prism if you look! The second one is this dress I’m modeling called Sparkles by Journey. You can pick it up as part of the Hunt for free too! It has a sparkly gold turtleneck collar and sexy split sides and includes a color change hud for versatility!

Dress body compatibility included:

  • Classic XXS – L
  • Fitmesh
  • Maitreya
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique

Come Into My Parlor

Black Widow_001

Take a seat in my parlor dear… never mind the chair. It won’t bite… though I might…

A black widow… in several sizes

Isn’t this Black Widow chair adorable?! And it’s perfect for Halloween! Or any Gothic theme! Better yet it was only 1L as part of the Bump in the Night Hunt and once you find the crow at Little to Large (or you can pay 25L at the sign if you don’t want to hunt) you get several size chairs as a bonus! You’ll get the chair for full size avatars as shown, petite avatars and tinies as well! How cool is that!

It’s also only 2 prim and has several very nice sitting animations.

A new hair

KoKoLoReS has their October group gift hair out and it is a pretty and chic stylish short do. The group is 250L to join, but the creator very generously puts out a new hairstyle (with a fatpack of colors) every single month for us gift hunters to pick up. You can count on a new hairstyle every month!

Some lingerie!

I found some lingerie (and a wall of past group gifts) at a new-to-me store called Bijou. This sexy black and red lingerie is perfect for the Halloween holiday… and for afterward too. The group is free to join, making the gift free too! Best yet, it accommodates all the popular mesh bodies!

  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Still Unpacking!

My Backyard_002

With 61 gifts at the Gacha Garden, I feel like I can’t possibly show enough to do them all justice… but as I was unpacking some of them this morning, I realized that there were so many beautiful home and garden gifts for creating a relaxing outdoor area that I didn’t want to neglect the “stuff” portion of the gifts. So while I want to show off a few fashion items today, Today’s post also features quite a few decor gifts as well!

New Tresses, glasses, & a bracelet

In the picture above I want to first mention a few things in the close-up. You’ll need the Gimme Gacha group tag to pick up these free gifts, but the Gimme Gacha group is free to join, making all of these gifts free!

First is my pretty tresses by Ayashi. These free locks have an anime feel, you’ll get a fatpack of cute colors, and they include kitty cat ears that you can hide or unhide (I chose to hide them for my picture). So this hair is great if you want to use it for a Neko or other “kitty” style.

We must be on a sunglasses kick here at Fabfree because I found these Sunglasses as the free gift near the Sweet Lies gacha machine and I knew I had to have them. They are very oversized when you first put them on but are modifiable. I did some stretching here and there to make them work for me, but you might like the oversized look. I love that the creator left them modifiable so that they are so easy to make fit to your avatar!

Tie it with a bow… on your wrist! At the Breathe gacha machine, this pretty free bow tie bracelet bangle was the gift and you get it in both black and white to match a variety of outfits. I was pleased with the pretty feminine look!

My Backyard_001

One more…

The last fashion item on my list is this sexy little mini dress by Entice covered in cherries. It’s the free gift by their gacha machine. In your gift package you’ll get fitmesh, Maitreya, and Slink Hourglass & Physique fits for mesh bodies. It even has a little white bow at the cleavage to match the bracelet I showed you in the picture at the top!

Onto the “stuff”

It can sometimes be hard to find good free decor gifts, but the Gacha Garden had creators who were generous with home and garden gifts this round. In the picture above, only the vines are from my inventory… everything else is a free gift.

FREE Home and garden gifts pictured above:

  • Fence – unKindness – Stained Garden Fence Set (1 prim per piece)
  • Lantern – Velvet Whip – Decorative Tin Lantern Gift (1 prim)
  • Bucket – Cherry House – Courtyard Hut Bucket Gift (1 prim)
  • Vase with Flowers – 22769 – Homegrown Gift Vase with Garden Flowers (3 prims)
  • Hanging Chair – Day Dreamer – Chair Swing Giftie (3 prims)
  • Potted Plant – Chez Moi – Potted Plant (1 prim)

A Writer’s Retreat

Snapshot

Not many of you may know it, but I am a stay at home mom, and an author as my day job in real life. That is why I absolutely fell in love with this set from Aisling that is currently available at the arcade. I haven’t gotten quite lucky enough to collect the entire set, but the nice thing about The Arcade, is you have all month long to try again, and even trade with others for those few “must have” items that you are still missing. I think I have now found my new favorite spot in SL! My upstairs hallway.

A Spring In My Step

FPH + DCNY

Today I picked up some things from the Flower Pedals Hunt. Each prize costs one linden. This hunt is super short (29 places) and really got me into a Springy mood.

Can’t you hear the birds chirping and the flowers blooming?

FPH Mouthy

This precious little mouthy is #4 in the Flower Pedals Hunt at Kre-ations Mainstore.

FPH Mouthy + Necklace

The Special Flower necklace comes from #24 Fujiwara’s World.

FPH Shoes

Number 7 in the FPH is from Nevermore Designs. They have three hunt prizes. One of them includes the black and pink ballet slippers above. Totally adorbs! Another prize is the Wingback Short Back Luxury Chair in Plum Butterlies shown below (5 poses).

FPH Chair

Where does the stellar Chevron mesh dress come from you ask? It is the DCNY item at My Attic @ The Deck. It costs 95L and comes in 10 colors. Lola Tangos applier also included (shown above). Comes with black and brown belts or no belt. I ADORE chevron patterns and plan to buy at least half the colors! Alas, I better hurry because the April Edition of My Attic runs through April 30th.

More to come this week from the awesome bright little Flower Pedals Hunt. ^~^
