Flamingos and Squids

Flamingos and Squids

In preparation

It’s been a pretty long week for me IRL and with all signs, unfortunately, pointing to things getting more chaotic in the coming days, I turned to my Second Life and popped into the Baja Norte sim for some a much-needed breather. There’s still something calming about seagulls swooping about amidst the cresting waves, even though it’s just only in a virtual world. I had something skimpier in mind for this outing (hmm…come to think of it I’ve never actually worn a swimsuit to any of the beach sims I’ve visited), but a stop to Creator’s Collection Box changed my mind. Unlike Carson, who came away with one killer look, I quickly picked up the gift at the S@bbia booth. From its quirky print (flamingos are just adorable birds don’t you think?) to its pretty bowed sash, the (aptly named) Flamingo dress is simply darling.

The gift comes in only one mesh size, however, and without an alpha layer included. While arguably it’ll be easier for those with mesh bodies to find a fit thanks to their nifty alpha huds, I experimented with some of the alpha layers of other dresses that I already owned and found a good fit. Personally, I feel that the Flamingo dress was worth the effort especially when you take into consideration that it does come with a hud that lets you switch the dress between three colors (blue, red and white) technically making it three free dresses. Be sure to do a little more exploring if you visit this 2nd Anniversary round of Creator’s Collection Box as the majority of booths have great free gifts out.

A good pair of clogs

Seeing as I wanted to be able to dip my toes in the water or wriggle them in the warm sand, fussy boots or heels just wouldn’t do for this latest adventure. The sneakers had to stay at home too because who wants to spend their time cleaning sand out from the soles of their damp sneakers (yuck!). Luckily enough I came across a free fatpack of clogs from A&D Clothing and my footwear problems were quickly solved. These cute clogs are a sub-o gift at the store meaning that you won’t need to join any groups or free up those precious group slots to get your hands on them. Better yet this gift is unisex (that ‘special’ dude won’t have any excuses not to join you at the beach now) and can be worn with classic avatar feet (alpha layer and shoe base included). Did I mention that this gift is a fatpack? Well, you’ll also be getting a hud which lets you choose among twelve different colors with a section that’s dedicated to resizing tools as well. I’m still pretty tickled that I found this design in SL seeing as I’ve a couple of pairs of these out of the virtual world and see them all over the place besides. When do we get to choose the charms hmm?

Flamingos and Squids

So squids were mentioned

And here they are in the form of a cute pair of earrings from Frangipani Garden that’s also available as a free gift at Creator’s Collection Box. While I’m fully aware that you’re supposed to eat seafood and not wear it, these Takosan earrings were just too cute to pass up. The detailing on these earrings are amazing as is the subtle difference in the expressions between Mr. and Ms. Squid (well, I assume they’re Mr and Ms). While a resizer script is absent, permissions on these earrings are set to modify and copy so you can make as many backups as you like before making those changes if need be. Creator’s Collection Box runs until the 18th of next month so hurry down.

A sweet face

There’s a new group gift out at WoW Skins! I always look forward to the frequent gifts from this store and was pretty excited to unbox Preziosa. She has a slightly more mature look to her, I feel but still, has that sweet look and glossiness that are hallmarks of the WoW Skins. The neutral tones of the makeup on Preziosa are simply perfect. The gift package includes:

  • Two system skins in the Tan tone (one with cleavage and one without)
  • Omega applier hud for Head and Body

Other skin tones are available for purchase at the WoW Skins main store at a discounted price of 199L and it is 450L to join the group if you’re not already a member. Of course joining the group will mean access to the group only Lucky Letter and Midnight Mania boards that are always stuffed with goodies.

And that’s a wrap. I’ve got a sudden craving for takoyaki and hmm…where do I get some? Till later.

EDIT: Thanks to Ariel Starflare, I’ve been informed that there is now an alpha layer for the dress. Us classic avatars can rejoice!

Boxes rich with gifts

So many boxes so many gifts!

The Creators Colletion Box event (CCB) is having their 1st anniversary. You know what anniversaries means, pressies! Most every booth has a FREE gift, no group to join. There are things for woman, men and home. I collected all the boxes and headed to unpack them to find out what surprises they held. I put some of them together so you can see what awaits you.

Each item is FREE. My mesh Striped dress is from S@BBiA, its comes with just one size but it fit me like a charm so it may be fitmesh tho it doesn’t say so. My quirky red Ika squid earrings are from CX. My black bow ribbon choker is curtsy of  Kyoko Couture, a quick edit had it fitting my neck. The day is so windy my cute dot parasol gift from W-ZERO may get blown away, it includes a hold pose. Tho I am actually using the gift poses from J’dore instead.

Each store link will take you directly to that stall tho its a small event and worth the walk around to grab all the gifts.

The Creators Colletion Box event (CCB) run for a whole month so you have til March 20th. I didn’t have any trouble tping right in tho so no need to wait til it slows down to grab your FREE gifts.

I can sing a Rainbow, can you?

“Red and yellow, and pink and green, purple and orange and blue” *hums* Happy Sunday everyone! I’ve got some great colourful pieces to show off for you today! I know, me and lots of colour, surprising isn’t it 😛 .

I know you all are big fans of the SLF&O group, and the many gifts that are available for members. Well, one of my favourite designers that puts out SLF&O group gifts, has just switched out her previous gifts for new ones! I’m talking about Livalle. Sticking with the previous format of 3 pairs of shoes in 3 different heights, she has done the same with some pretty, perfect for spring, shoes. Each pair comes with Maitreya, Bellezza, and SLink versions, so most of you meshy feet wearers should be happy. To remind you all, the SLF&O group is free for you to join, and the gifts are free to grab with your tag on.

The first pair, in mint,  is a maryjane style heel, meant for the mid range feet. They are called Wednesday, but obviously will work for any day!

colourful2

The second pair. in Lavender, are a great, strappy high heel for high feet. Their name is Rhiannon.

colourful3

Lastly, the third pair, is a sweet Pink and Black flat, named Rosetta. I love the little bows.

Now, did you notice the dresses I had on in each picture? These lovely, bright, geometric printed dresses are from Somnia, and you can pick up a fatpack of 5 colour combinations over @ Free*Style for only L$50. That’s L$10 a dress! They are mesh dresses, available in the standard sizes, in each colour combination. I should mention that I’ve heard the Free*Style shop will be undergoing some reno’s soon, which will also include a changing of all the great items that are there. So these dresses will not be available after that. I can’t tell you when this is happening, so I would not chance waiting too long, and head over right away. So many other great deals to be had, all items priced L$50 or lower, from so many great creators, you do not want to miss out.

Last thing before I leave you all. The Creators Collection Box is celebrating their 1st anniversary, and so almost every store that has a booth set up there, has also placed out a free gift for you. The 3 poses I used for my pictures are the gift you can grab from addme poses. I love that they include each individual pose, a pose hud, and a pose stand, so you have your choice in how you use your poses. There is no need to join any kind of group, just find the little box that says it is the anniversary gift, and buy for L$0. Sorry, I forgot to check how long this one will be running for, so again, I wouldn’t wait too long before you head over.

Alrighty. That’s it for me. Hope you’ve had a great weekend, and the coming week won’t be too terrible. Back to RL work for me, you know my feet will be dragging after having had a week off. So until I see you all again, TTFN *waves*

Modern Geisha

Modern Geisha

Evening Fab Free’rs, hope you’ve all had a great day! I spent mine doing all sorts of not fun very mundane real life stuff. It’s not so bad though, because now I get to share pretty accessories with you. 🙂 Tonight’s post is stacked with some really beautiful accessories that I picked up at a new event called Creators Collection Box. At the event you’ll find everything from furniture to clothing, much of which is specially discounted just for the duration of the event. Several of the participating designers also placed out special gifts, simply wear your CCB (Creators Collection Box) tag and pick them up for FREE. Out of the several gifts I picked up, I decided to show my favorites, which include the umbrella, the bow in Pru’s hair, the lovely bouquet of roses, the chest tattoo, and these pretty eyes. Some of the items are also scripted and have poses, so I took some additional photos.

First however, the adorable bow in Pru’s hair is one of the many FREE Gifts at CCB. It comes from Amiable. I positioned it differently than the default to better fit Pru’s hairstyle. Pru is wearing the bow in black, however the gift includes a pink version and a cream colored version.

Umbrella Poses

This Japanese style umbrella is gorgeous, and I had a lot of fun posing with it. The umbrella is the FREE CCB gift from Silvery K. It is very detailed, and includes a menu for changing the pose, opening or closing the umbrella, turning particles on or off, and re-sizing. The above photo shows the 3 poses, two for when the umbrella is open and one for when it is closed. Please note that the pose only changes how you hold the umbrella, not so much your stance. You can also use the touch menu to turn the animation off and on for different poses. I found that if you have a pose that initially “overrides” the umbrella’s hold, turning the umbrella animation off, then back on fixes it so you can use your own ao/sits/stands or whatever and still be holding the umbrella properly.

Old Rose Poses

Another beautifully done absolutely FREE CCB gift with poses are these “Old Rose Bouquets” by RH Design House. There are three colors, red, blue/lavender, and a pretty pink. In addition, the gift comes with two standing poses, and one sitting pose specifically for holding the flowers. I really can’t decide if these roses or the umbrella are my absolute favorites of all the gifts. I sincerely love these flowers though, and intend to leave them out in my home so even when I’m not holding them, just so I can see them.

Tattoo & Eyes

Speaking of seeing, the eyes Pru has in are also a FREE CCB gift. They are by *(OO)*Yuki, and come in a four-pack of pretty variations of the basic eye colors, brown, green, blue, and black. The eyes are mesh and included in the package is an alpha to hide system eyes. Also shown in the above photo yes yet another FREE CCB gift by Chocolate Atelier. The Valentine’s themed chest tattoo comes in color and monotone versions, and includes system layers, as well as appliers for Slink Physique, WowMeh, and Maitreya.
