GET YOUR HUNT ON

November is proving to be a month for hunting. I took a look at the number of hunts on the grid, and I’m excited to say that I almost didn’t know where to begin. Between the Menstuff Hunt, The Medieval Fantasy Hunt, the El Dia Los Muertos Hunt, and so many others, this month is proving to be a Hunter’s Dream come true! I finally decided to start out my hunting with El Dia Los Muertos, though, since it is traditionally celebrated at the beginning of November, even if the hunt lasts through to the end of November. There are many wonderful prizes to to be had for your hunting time and 1L for each prize.

I made my initial stop by Roped Passion’s, as the creator has never let me down when it comes to creative attire. And as usual, there is a terrific hunt gift set out, and men have not been forgotten. (Ladies there is a gorgeous dress in the prize for you too, but I decided not to wear it in this post.😉 )

WHAT IS INCLUDED

Your hunt prize includes the Modern Day of the Dead suit for men in all the standard mesh sizes (it is one piece for easy fitting) as well as its own alpha. You will also get a separate and optional mesh mask. The mask is editable as far as resizing to easily fit to different size heads/faces. I did a bit of tweaking to get it to fit to my face without any trouble.

The suit has a terrific texture on the sleeves and cuffs, but also on the back. In order to show you the design on the back, I’m including the vendor advertisement below so you can see the back of the outfit as well. It’s well worth teleporting to the Roped Passion’s main-store to hunt down this 1L prize!

Nerdy Girl in-world Closing Sale

Super Heroes

It’s hard to see much beloved stores close their doors in Second Life… and Nerdy Girl has announced that she will be moving the in-world store to the Marketplace to pursue new adventures after July 12th. In the meantime, as a bit of a farewell gift to all the loyal customers who love nerdology, the in-world store is having a last hoorah and closing sale before it moves to the marketplace… a bonus for all of us loyal shoppers🙂

Nerdy Girl has put out all the old gifts for one thing, so if you are a group member, stop by and pick up any you missed (the join fee is only 25L if you are not already a member, and with all the goodies, it’s worth joining).

In addition, all store merchandise is priced at 25L or lower, excluding gachas. In salute to the Nerdy ways, Loki and I decided to go as Nerd Heroes. I am not convinced that he got it quite right, but then he thinks I didn’t do it right either… we agreed to disagree, since Rainbow Brite is my favorite, and he said Superman was super.

My rainbow bright costume includes the mesh skirt, applier top and leggings, and the bow (which comes in a left, center, or right fit). For 25L, it’s quite a deal!

Loki’s mesh hoodie in all the standard sizes is quite a find indeed, as there is a texture change hud included. The hud changes the t-shirt and hoodie separately, for lots of nerd fun… hero symbols on the shirt and hoodie all separate for whatever hero you want to be that day. For 25L, there’s a hero in every guy just waiting to come out!

If you are in the mood for some roleplaying this weekend here in Second Life, I may have found your new go-to costume. This is “Queen of Hearts” from MoonliteCat Creations and it’s the 1L prize for the Nightmares and Fairy Tales Hunt.  The top, with the attached arm bracers and collar, and the skirt are separate pieces and both come in the standard Mesh sizes – XS-XL. There are three alpha layers included: one for the top, one for the skirt and one for both pieces. I just love it when designers make a multi – piece outfit so darn versatile!

Nunthing to Wear for Halloween?

Nunthing to Wear for Halloween 1

Nunthing to wear yet for Halloween? Or interested in a fabulous roleplay costume and on a tight budget? I have your solution!

My nun habit is by Bombard and was an easy snag from the Marketplace for only 10L. It only comes with a flexy skirt and system layers but the flow and fit of the outfit (and quality of the make) was so impressive I was pleased despite the lack of mesh.

I used slink hands and the lack of my beloved mesh body wasn’t even noticeable with this well made costume (the necklace is included and the outfit comes in several colors and styles, not just the black I’m showing… quite a bargain for only 10L).

Nunthing to Wear for Halloween 2

+Spellbound+ has put out a beautiful last minute Halloween Group Gift in the form of this hair called Asylum. It comes in a full color pack, and the creator is generously giving out the ‘tears’ face tattoo as well! It is your FREE with your Group Tag which is a mere 100L for the Group Join fee… well worth it I say!

Nunthing to Wear for Halloween 3

Not only does the hair include a full range of color changes, but let’s not leave out the versatility of the ‘veil/habit’ the hair comes with as well. It has 4 logo options for one… “no logo” the cross (shown above), and upside down cross, or “NILF” if you wish. It too is color change with 7 color choices to match various outfits for you making this a fabulous costume or roleplay hair.

Lacrimosa

Lacrimosa

I found my Halloween costume! Halloween is creeping closer, and I am super excited! This vampy mesh dress complete with attached wings, and matching mask, is the current group gift at Katak. The gift is FREE and so is the group. Included with this vampish dress are the wings (which are actually part of the dress) and the matching mask. This curvaceous dress comes in a regular fit for standard avatars, a TMP fit, and a Maitreya fit. Also available is a matching costume for the men, making this one half of an awesome couple’s costume.

For the finishing touch to this ghoulish look, I added the dollarbie gift from Indulge Temptation at the Mad Circus Gacha Fair. You’ll find all sorts of loveliness at the festival, including the beauties in the gacha machine for Indulge Temptation, but this blood vial set for just 1 linden was too perfect to pass up! The set includes a pair of earrings, and a matching necklace. I’ve seen a lot of blood vial jewelry in my time in SL, and this one is truly one of my favorites.

Now Go Do That Voodoo, That You Do So Well!

whcdbl voodoo 1_001

The best way to get a feel for a city is by moonlight. During the hustle of the day, most cities take on a similar hum with the activity of commerce. It is a din that drowns out all else. With the quiet of nightfall, you can feel the beating of each city’s unique heart. New Orleans, steeped in dark magical power, is one of my favorite cities (okay, and maybe it’s round-the-clock partying has something to do with that!).

What better place to be a Voodoo King than the city of New Orleans? Dressed By Lexi has long been a favorite store of some of the women I know. Honestly, I hadn’t been to the store lately so when a friend told me I HAD to check it out, I jumped at the chance to visit. This month, Dressed By Lexi has been putting Halloween costumes on sale for 55L every week! This week, I am wearing the Mesh Voodoo King costume. It consists of two main pieces and a bunch of goodies tossed in to sweeten the deal. The black trousers come in seven sizes and are tattered where the cuffs would be. The Voodoo King Vest comes in five sizes and, while also dark, is rich in color and pattern making it quite fetching. That wide range of sizes does a great job of taking care of any fit issues. The costume doesn’t end there though; it includes some fun goodies too! The Voodoo King Staff and the face paint mask comprise an extremely scary looking pair of accessories. Add to them the necklace, top hat, and sandals (for regular avy feet) and you get a lot for the money! I saved the best detail for last: Dressed By Lexi makes their costumes for couples! So, if you are looking to go out for a romantic date wearing matching Halloween costumes, they have you covered. In fact, they are so thoughtful, the outfits are transfer enabled!

Hurry over to Dressed By Lexi to pick up the Voodoo King today, because the 55L Thursdays Sale items change every week. Of course, that’s actually good news if you collect great costumes like I do. I, for one, have a date to go dancing with my beautiful editor Andi wearing last week’s sale costumes: Tarzan and Jane. I can think of no better way to celebrate the continuing of Fab Free than to celebrate with someone who has tirelessly given her time to make me seem smarter than I really am. Have fun everyone and see you on the grid!—–WHC Riler

Something a little Different

Soon to be on FabFree

Some days you just don’t feel like getting all glammed up.  All that picking and matching, and trying to find that one folder in your inventory.  What was it called anyhow?  Luckily places like Grendel’s Children have our backs with a wide array of goofy, and well made full av freebies.  Like this guy!  This adorable hippo av comes complete with an ao that lets you wriggle his ears, sit, yawn, as well as a few other animations.

 

Soon to be on FabFree

The Boxbot was another favorite find of mine (out of dozens and dozens of awesome avs, seriously, go now).  This cute little cardboard box man also has an additional set of heads and a customization kits next to his vendor, all free as well.

 

Soon to be on FabFree

Boxbots and Hippos not your style?  Abranimations also has a few very cute cheap and free AVs.  The mesh Rag Doll Cat is right near the landing point.  You will also find some cute avs in the discount section (as well as free and cheap AOs and dance huds!)  I also picked up a little bat AV and Break Dancing hud while I was there, and I can tell you this cat was made to break dance!

Have a beautiful week!

I am featuring Asian items today but there are several non Asian FREEBIES as well. There are decor items, builds, clothes, costumes, skins and weapons. With so many choices there has to be something to tickle both girls and guys fancy so its well worth a trip over to JOMO to have a look around, remember there are FREE items to be found in all the shops with the bulk of them being in the FREE shop. If you want to score a few more gifts you can join the FREE group and play the lucky letter boards found in the room containing all FREEBIES.
