A Treep To The Darkside

Xclusiveanimationshorrorhunt
Hey there FabFree!  You won’t believe what happened last night.  I can hardly believe it myself!

It went something like this…

He and I were out for our routine after dinner stroll through the park, my hand in his – like it always is.  The air was crisp and cool enough to pink our cheeks and the leaves were crunching below our feet while we talked about the days events.  We got to our half way point of the loop at the big old oak tree at precisely 7:00pm, laughing about how things are becoming a bit too routine.  Of course this was a comfortable routine and we were both happy with it.

I looked up at him smiling and his eyes got big like saucers and his face went straight.  With his best Dracula impression he said to me “You vant to take a treep to the darkside?”.  Of course I rolled my eyes and laughed at his dorky impression, but he pulled my hand laughing evilly “Mooa ha ha ha ha haaaa” as he swiftly darted right off of our normal path, and we were in the trees before I could say “CARSON CAIBEN!”.  I had never been this way before, but he seemed to know where he was going…

The sun was long gone by now

A light fog blanketed the ground.  The almost full moon offered just enough light for me to see the gravestones past the old rickety gate he was now inviting me to enter through.  “Pfft…  we shouldn’t be here!” I said “and also.. what has gotten into you?”.  He smirked with an I dare you face and motioned for me to walk through the gate saying “ladies first”.  I went through that gate of course just to prove I wasn’t scared (even though I was lol).  He followed behind me, closing the gate with a clang.  He led me up a path to an open coffin.  I looked at the coffin with confusion, and then I looked at him…  AND HIS FANGS.  It’s true everyone….  Carson is a vampire.

Get The WHOLE Graveyard Scene for 1L!

Hunt down the Horror Hunt (Blood splatter) icon at X-Clusives Animations and buy it for 1L and you’ll have this entire animated scene including everything you see here (except Carson and I). The fog mists, the bats, orbs and ghosts fly and the coffin is VERY animated with cuddles to the x-rated variety.   It has a land impact of 66 prims and would be great for photography, or a secret spooky skybox :).

Smoke On The Water

untitled

I’m not a smoker anymore, and haven’t been for 2 decades now.  I usually turn my nose up to the smell of stale smoke… but when I walk through a whiff of my old trusty menthols, my mouth starts to water!  I swiped one for old times sake from his “secret – I don’t smoke anymore stash”, which he won’t call me on – because he would have to admit it exists.  🙂

Enough of the jibber jabber! Where did you get that dress?

I’m out enjoying the sun today, wearing my new floral mini dress called Lilli that I picked up on Marketplace in the Lamu Fashion store for just 1L!  The all over delicate floral print is just lovely on this basic thigh slit / spaghetti strap mini dress.  I wanted to show it off on it’s own, but I bet it looks really cute with a denim jacket too.

It comes in several sizes, which you can see below:

  • XS – L Classic Mesh + Aplha Layer
  • XS – L Fitmesh
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Belleza

How Do I Find Dollarbies on Marketplace?

Snapshot_002
Hey there Fabulous Readers! Sometimes I find myself scanning the dollarbies on marketplace when I have a few spare minutes, because I think at times these goodies get missed in the shuffle of all of the feeds and group news and such.  I find it’s a great way to get in a little harmless pixel shopping when I can’t get inworld too!  I just fill up my cart and when I get inworld, I check out so that nothing is a miss delivery.

How to find dollarbies on marketplace:

First of all… Be careful when you are marketplace shopping, especially for things like hair and skin.  Unfortunately there are a lot of copybotters out there, and Marketplace is their jam.  It is very important that we support the original content maker, and not the person trying to benefit from someone else’s work.

There may be a better way to do this, and if anyone has any positive suggestions or tricks on how to narrow down the search, please feel free to comment, but what I do is this…

  1. Open up Second Life Marketplace.
  2. Click on the category you are wanting to explore on the left hand side.  In my case usually it’s Apparel -> Womens
  3. Scroll down to the price category on the left hand side and enter min – 1  x max – 10 and click “refine search”.

This will bring up all items that are priced in your category of choice, priced between 1-10L.  Unfortunately it does include a lot of demos, but not as many as if you select a price category of 0-10!

To make things a little easier to view, I also do the following:

  • Select items per page 96, so I don’t have to “next page” so much.
  • Select sort by Age: Newest First, which will bring up items that have been newly listed first.
  • ETA: Entering “NOT demo” into the search box will remove the demos from your listing – Tip courtesy of Brinlea

Additionally, typing words like “promo”, “gift”, and “free” into the search box will also narrow your quest for dollarbies down!

My Marketplace score of the day:

My favourite marketplace dollarbie find for today is the Eyk Tunic Dress in red by Sun*Love as shown on my avatar.   This summer chic design could be worn as a short dress as I have done, or as a blouse.  Either way you decide to wear it, you’ll be stylin!  At just 5 little lindens, it comes in mesh sizes XXS-L and includes an alpha layer.

Don’t Forget The Sunblock

Snapshot_001Hey Fabulouses!  He and I decided to turn it all off for a little beach R&R.  Turn off the IMs, turn off the group chats, turn off the constant blog project in process, and thoughts of future blog projects.  Ahhh….  silence…  just the two of us and a big sandy beach.

Beach Bliss

The sweet scent of coconut sunblock filled the air and the warm sun shone down on us as a misty breeze blew through the palms refreshingly.  For just a minute there wasn’t a distraction in the world that could take me away from the bliss.  I turned to smile at him, and out of the corner of my eye… I spotted an awesome His & Hers Towel Rack behind us.  Wait what? Is that a group gift?!  Turns out, I can’t turn it off for very long after all.  It’s a good thing he was happy to sit there with  me long enough to get a photo!

His & Hers

In the New Releases area at Shutter Field you’ll find the His & Hers Beach Towel Rack as shown in my photo.  The rack includes the folded blanket, sunblock and hanging his and hers towels all with a land impact of just 4.  This piece is copy/mod so you can rez multiple copies and modify it a little if you need to.  I should also mention that there is a His & His Beach Towel Rack out as a free group  gift too.  This group is just 20L to join.

Getting Sandy

This beautiful couple’s pose by Just Posing is called “Sandy” and is available for just 1L on marketplace.

Furnishing – Shutter Field Beach Towel Rack His & Hers (free group gift / 0L / 20L to join)

Pose – Just Posing July Group Gift {Sandy} (1L – marketplace)

Hey there Fabulouses!  I hope you are enjoying your weekend :).  As you can see I have found myself a cozy little nook to rest in on the Follow Your Bliss sim, and it couldn’t be more needed!  I didn’t even bring a dog with me this time, because we all know how my dogs behave and I just needed some peace…  It’s been a long, busy and challenging week!  I left all 23 of my furr babies with him and his new cat.  I am sure they are having a lovely and relaxing time  adjusting to eachother.  *crickets*

Blogging, for me… is a way to relax and unwind, so I have put on an outfit that I picked up for just 1L courtesy of MOoH!  for the Stupid Cupid Hunt. and set out to find a nice place for a photo.

The Outfit Details

If you like the Tabitha Outfit by MOoH!  that I am wearing today that includes the breezy Rope Cowl Neck Top and metallic leather Cut Out Pants, all you need to do is hunt down that little red arrow icon at the MOoH! store and pick it up for 1L.  Don’t delay though – this hunt only runs until the end of the month!

  • XS-XL Mesh + Alpha Layer
  • Fitmesh XS-XL

Tickled Pink

Snapshot_006

Hey there FabFree! I have been looking around, compiling a list of fabulous and free-ish things to show you over the next week or so, and the conclusion that I have come to is that this… is an ideal time to stock up on lingerie which will tickle your partner pink!!  There are so many designers offering sexy little things as group gifts or hunt items this month with Valentine’s Day just around the corner.

Stock Up On Underthings

Alaskametro is one of those designers, and is participating in The Kiss of the Valentine Hunt that is being run by BOSL.  This 1L hunt has tons of participating designers and is being held at BOSL Boulevard Couture.  Have a look around the sim for red hearts, cleverly hidden.

The hunt prize by Alaskametro is high on the hip and tasty for the eyes in a playful Cerise shade of sheer lace.  This beautiful Freyja Bodysuit is compatible with the following body types:

  • System
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Omega

Want A Shot At A Lucky Empire?

Snapshot_001
Good evening Fabulouses!  I’m stopping in real quick tonight to share news about a couple of things I found that I thought were great deals and as a bonus, they look marvelous together!  My outfit today consists of a group lucky board prize at Empire and a 1L dollarbie find in the N-Uno Marketplace store.  I’ll tell you more about them below:

About the sexy harnessed dress

The very pretty Shot Dress as shown in my photo can be found in the N-Uno marketplace store for just 1L.  I am displaying the beige colour, but if you investigate further into their listings, you’ll see that you can pick it up in three colours at 1L each.

  1. Beige
  2. Yellow
  3. Peach

In the folder you’ll find mesh sizes XXS-L.  Normally I am a mesh size S, but I bumped up to a M in this dress.  You might want to try a size larger if you are having trouble squeezing in like I was.  An alpha layer is included for those that require it.

A fatpack of caged sandal boots?  Yes please!

I am in love with Empire‘s Primula design!  I am not sure if you would call this a boot or a sandal, but  I am going to go with “caged sandal boots”!  If you are an inworld group member of the Empire paid group (499L to join) you can stalk the three group lucky boards available only to members that contain fatpacks of some really great footwear.  Primula is just the one that I was lucky enough to see an “L” on so far!  I’ll be stalking for the others soon.  Don’t forget when you join this group you gain a whole year’s worth of VIP gifts too!  You can see some of them that have been blogged on FabFree below:

No Shame In My Game

Snapshot_006It looks like Julianna and I had the same idea – It’s hot… and we should float!  My floatie isn’t quite as cool as hers, but it’s doing the trick 😉

I’m floating around trying to beat the heat on the Sea Foam Sim today (thank you to Markum for showing me this sim!), in my new Sumur Dress that I picked up at Shame for the Around The Grid in 80 Days Hunt.  This dress comes in one size – Maitreya and has a casual lightweight jersey type texture to it that makes me wish I had this breezy cool dress on in real life!

This dress will set you back 25L if you are too lazy to hunt for it – or 1L if you don’t mind having a peek around! The hunt icon you are seeking is a yellow and red hot air balloon.
