Zombie Hunter

Zombie Hunter

To get myself into the mood for Halloween, I decided to grab my crossbow and head over to Dystopia in search of zombies. Unfortunately, my car broke down, so it looks like I’ll be staying for a while.

Hang on, I think I see something moving behind that big pile of trash…

(For the record, there don’t appear to be any zombies at Dystopia. But if you’re looking for a well-designed, post-apocalyptic sim, you should definitely pay it a visit.)

The Outfit

What inspired my look today was the September group gift from Ghee. I’ve seen it styled a number of different ways on Flickr, but for some reason, when I put it on, I felt all Sarah Conner from The Terminator. All I had to do was add a weapon, and I was a bad@$$ zombie hunter! 😎

The VIP 09/17 GIFT from Ghee is a complete outfit that includes the cargo pants, tank top, and boots. The ribbed tank comes with a texture-change HUD with 6 different colors — black, yellow, orange, blue, pink, and the beige color I’m wearing — so you could definitely wear the tank as part of another outfit.

Sizes for the pants and top include:

  • Standard mesh XXS-L with alpha
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique

The boots are “one size fits all.” Just remember to remove your mesh feet first.

The Accessories

I shopped around quite a bit to find the perfect accessories for my look:

  • Hair – I picked up the Rossella Hair by Tableau Vivant at The Arcade for 50L. I love this “roots” version because everyone knows zombie hunters don’t have time to dye their hair, right?
  • Sunglasses – These super cool DESTRUCTINATOR glasses by TBF are available on the Marketplace for 10L. There’s no resizer, but you can edit > stretch to change the size.
  • Necklace – Another gacha, this time by Dahlia at The Imaginarium for 50L. Click for a resizer menu.
  • Bracelet – An oldie, but a goodie, by Eli Rae’s Tinkering, available for 5L on the Marketplace. There’s no resizer, and you can’t stretch either, so the size is what it is. Originally shown 4 years ago by Caresia Adored, some SL items just never go out of style. 🙂

The Weapon

No zombie hunter would be complete without a weapon, of course. I selected this scary crossbow by Blackburns, which I found on the Marketplace for 29L. It comes with a wearable version that hooks onto your back (without any straps, which I thought looked a bit odd), as well as the

It comes with a wearable version that hooks onto your back (without any straps, which I thought looked a bit odd), as well as the posed version that I’m showing here, which actually shoots. Oh, and it includes an arrow that you can wear in your head, if you like.

Sadly, I didn’t find any actual zombies to shoot at in Dystopia. But I did have fun firing at the trees on my sim, which scared the daylights out of my dogs. 😛

Happy hunting, folks!

The Dreaded Daylight Saving Time…

I’m totally not a fan. Pick a time and leave it is my motto. This jumping back and forth is outdated and needs to fade away. Since I get an extra hour of sunshine (ask me about that tomorrow morning when I’m walking the dog in the dark) I thought I’d get outside and begin the spring cleanup of the yard. I’ve pick out a casual outfit suited for yard work. I picked up The March group gift at the Orchid Store. The Adrian Skull Shirt is something I wouldn’t mind getting a little dirty. That would make it look more “authentic”. Both the group and the gift are free, but it is a pay $1L, get $1L back for each. I also stopped by AGATA and grabbed their latest group gift, the Dana Stripe Pants. This is also a FREE gift to members and the group is FREE to join. My Mesh Clogs (she thinks they are not a good fashion choice, but they are so dang comfortable) are a subscriber gift at A&D Clothing that Edi previously showed [HERE] . Just tap the subbo and the shoes are yours. The clogs also come with a texture changing HUD for your choice of colors.

Squirrelly Weather…

With the strange weather this winter, I already have flowers starting to grow. I hope the snow that is expected tomorrow doesn’t kill them off. I’ll mulch them in good and hopefully they will be protected. My outdoor decor comes from the Vintage Gacha Fair. Both the Natural Woodland Stump with Flowers and the  Chickadee Birdhouse are both FREE booth gifts from Kitty Creations. Each booth has a gift, it is worth the effort (and lag when I was there) to grab them all. I also needed some yard tools. I found the Garden Tools form Death Row Designs on the Marketplace for just $40L. I better get back to work before it gets dark… oh yeah, I have that extra hour now…

Shocking!

Shocking

Final words….

“I’m innocent! I swear!” Those were my final words before they threw the switch sending 2000 volts of electricity through my body. I have often times said I’m innocent but no one seems to believe me… wonder why?  My shocking new look comes from all over the grid. The Valentine Group Gift Hair come from Tableau Vivant. The gift is free to members, but costs $100L to join. I found the FREE Men’s T-Shirt at LeFreak! by joining the FREE group.

Better than a lazy-boy…

My new favorite chair is a FREE grand opening group gift from Death Row Designs. The Electric Chair has several poses for both male and female death row inmates. The group is FREE to join, so grab one and park it in the middle of your living room…. “What was that?” excuse me… I was told to say…” put it in your man cave…. ”

Slowly Going Nowhere

Slowly Going NowhereHello again Fab Free’rs! Finally it’s starting to feel like fall where I live. I’m excited to be able to dig out more of my fall wardrobe. Until now, my virtual wardrobe has had to support my love of cold weather clothing. That said, I also find I spend more time outside when the weather is colder. There was something interesting in unique about the “Acid Rain” group gift from Death Row Designs. While definitely not the ideal patio furniture, it certainly tells a story. I also styled my outfit for the cooler weather using a dollarbie hunt prize sweater from Vindiktive.

Role-play is such a huge part of Second Life, and even though I rarely participate in that aspect these days, I’m always inspired by creations in SL that lend themselves to storytelling. After all, story telling is essentially what role-play is all about. This FREE group gift chair and umbrella set from Death Row Designs does just that. The “Acid Rain” set of ruined furniture is highly detailed and has both male and female poses for the chair. Also included in the gift are two hand-held umbrellas which are not shown. When I saw this gift, I instantly thought about where these items had been, who they belonged to, what had happened. It made me think of situations where this furniture fit the scenario, like a post apocalyptic environment. The story started to unfold. That’s why I chose to share this unique gift with you. The Death Row Designs group is FREE to join, just wear your tag and click the gift vendor to get this gift.
THLH VindiktiveNext up, you guessed it, my sweater loving soul found another sweater! This one is the “The High Life Hunt” prize at Vindiktive. I’m not often a fan of high cropped sweaters, but this one I adore. I like the fall colors of the plaid, and the material texture looks like it would be soft and warm to the touch. I even like the mock turtleneck. This hunt is a dollarbie hunt, so the sweater costs just 1 linden. There are no groups to join, just head out to Vindiktive and hunt it down. Included in the package you’ll get the sweater in standard mesh sizes, as well as body specific sizes for Slink Physique, Slink Hour Glass, Maitreya Lara, Bellezia (Isis, Freya, Venus), and TMP. With all the sizes included, this top should be easy to wear for most mesh and classic avatars.

A Little Beach Yoga

Hello again fabulous peeps! I picked up a fun outfit on the Marketplace the other day and just had to show you. Especially for those of us in the Northern hemisphere, we could really use some brightness during the dreary winter we are going through right now. For an added bonus, I took my pictures at the beach, while doing yoga! That should help make you forget about winter for a few minutes 🙂

A Little Beach Yoga

Doing my best tree yoga pose, gives a good shot of my really cute mesh Elise outfit in the cheery Sun colouring, and comes from a new to me store on Marketplace, called Cysleek. I just happened to stumble across it the other day when I was browsing around. For L$0, you get both the yellow striped tee, and the fun orange parachute pants. Both pieces are mesh, and come in the standard sizes, and they would both be great to mix and match with other clothing you probably already have. I’ve included a shot with both legs down so you can really get a good look at my pants. I have to say, this outfit really makes me smile, as you all know how much I love bright colours, and you really can’t beat free.

Ok, I hope you all liked my get-away-from-winter post! I’m off for now, but don’t worry, I’ll be back. Until then, TTFN, and namaste 🙂

I go a walking, after midnight…

Hello Fabbies!! Happy Sunday. Hope you all have had a great weekend.  It is not currently midnight yet where I am, but tonight found me in a wandering mood, all the while, singing ‘Walking After Midnight’ by Patsy Cline. It’s a little weird on my part, as that is not the type of music I listen to, at all. Sometimes though, you just need to roll with it, so I made sure I had a good walking outfit, courtesy of Get Frocked and Cattiva.

walking_001

It really started with the current January group gift from Get Frocked. My fuzzy jacket, perfect for the snowy weather that has recently been hitting an awful lot of the North American continent, is both functional and cute! I love the red hearts pattern all over it. It is mesh, in all the standard sizes, and it is free for Get Frocked group members. The group is free to join, so even better! While I was grabbing this beauty, I also saw that Get Frocked is participating in the Black and White Hunt that is currently running, until the end of January. While the prizes for both paths are great, the black path prize really spoke to my black and red look that I had going on. This silky black shirt/dress is that black path prize. It is mesh, and again, is in all the standard sizes. I really like the length of it, as you could go the dress route like I did, or throw on a pair of jeans, and rock the long shirt look. Either way, that super low neckline lends itself to making a very sexy look. As I said, this hunt runs until the January 31, and all prizes, on either the black path, or the white path, are free.

Now, you can’t go walking without a good pair of boots. I had just picked up these sweet  7 League boots on the Marketplace from Cattiva for the teeny tiny sum of L$10! They do not need any kind of special feet, and are scripted for size change, as well as have modify permissions for those of you who like to hand adjust the sizing. If black is not your thing, or you love them a lot and want other colours, just take a look through the Cattiva MP store, as there are several other colours available. These babies make me want to start singing ‘These Boots are Made For Walking’ now. LOL.

Ok lovelies, I must be off. Monday morning comes way too quickly it seems, and I need to go finish up some odds and ends to be ready for RL work in the morning. The weekend needs to be 3 days I think…who’s with me? *grins* I will be back, so until next time, TTFN *waves*

A sweater is the perfect medicine, especially when it’s free!

Hello Fabfreers! I’ve been a little under the weather lately, and when that happens, all I can think of is a nice cozy sweater to bundle up in, while I’m aimlessly scrolling through Facebook. Really! LOL. {amiable} has provided such a sweater, and I naturally have to show it off.

computer1

I have on the {amiable} Vitamin Color Glitter Balloon Knit Top in red, and it is a group gift put out for Christmas, as well as a thank you for the group reaching 2000 members. What’s really fun about it, the little white undershirt collar, is a separate piece, so you can choose to wear it, or go without. The sweater, and collar piece are mesh, and come in the standard sizes. All you need to do to grab this cozy sweater is join the free {amiable} group, if you aren’t already in it, and put on your tag, and it’s yours for free! I think the balloon sleeves are so sweet!

computer2

I was recently discussing the upcoming FabFree Shoe Day (Jan 15th, how exciting is that!) with fellow blogger Glimmer, and she sent me a Marketplace link for a store, called xbody,  that I was not familiar with. I ended up doing a quick browse through other item listings for this store, and came across these fun, texture change sneakers. The xbody Xaris hipster shoes [Slink Flat] are unisex, with a resize script allowing them to fit both male and female SLink flat feet, as well as standard av feet, and though I am not familiar with the shapes of other flat mesh feet, you may be able to fit them to those too. The HUD that comes with these shoes, has a few different textures to choose from, and you can change each individual part of the shoe. You also have the ability to change the colour of each part. I put together a few different looks to show you the options, but really there are so many more than what I am showing you. These puppies will only set you back a tiny little L$10!

Alrighty, I think it’s time to force myself to go curl up in bed. Tiss the season for kleenex, cough syrup and hot water bottles after all. I hope you all are having a wonderful week so far, and I will be back soon. Until then, TTFN!

An elephante posing in my PJ’s, on Christmas Eve.

In my family, we have a tradition of getting a pair of pj’s every Christmas Eve. The thought behind it was that all of us would have something nice, and clean to wear for opening up presents Christmas morning. Now, even though it is usually my Mom who picks them out, this year, I picked out my own!

xmaseve1

Come on though, look how cute these are! Can you blame me? I’m sure, if she had seen them first, she would have picked them out for me too. My super cute, and super comfy Lucky Jammies set is from the plowwies cart at the Wash Cart Sale. This one piece, full body, mesh set comes in all the standard sizes, and includes a pair of fun snowman slippers, which I had kicked off before taking this picture (my feet get hot very quickly 😛 ). As with all Cart Sale items, you can pick these up for only L$10. Oh, and guys, there are male versions available too. How cute would that be, matching jammies on Christmas morning!!

xmaseve2

For all you pose lovers, elephante poses subscriber recently sent out its Dec 2015 gift. The 3 pack of poses is called Mary, and it is free in the history of the subscribo. If you are not in it already, all you need to do is subscribe at the store. As an special bonus, quite a few of the old subscribo gifts have been added as well, so don’t be surprised that when you subscribe, you get a whack load of gifts. I suggest, even if you were already in the list, to go down and unsubscribe, and then resubscribe, because while I was already in the list prior to this post, I did not get these older gifts automatically sent to me, and it was only after resubscribing that they were. There were 10 gifts total in there, including the newest that I am showing off. I’m not sure how long they will be there though, so don’t wait if you want them.

Ok all my FabFree friends. While I am mostly prepared for Christmas tomorrow, I still have some things I need to do, so I must be off. If I don’t post anything tomorrow, and you celebrate Christmas, I hope you have a very merry one. To everyone one else, no matter what you celebrate, or don’t, I hope your day is wonderful. I will see you all again soon. Until then, TTFN *waves*
