The best cure for the Weekday Blues, in my opinion, is free gifts. Hello, dear readers and welcome to another edition of Edi’s Costume Ideas where I bring to you some hopefully helpful free or under 75L finds for your upcoming Halloween festivities. This episode, so to speak, is rather special as not only is it coming to you during the weekend, but also features an item from one of our Fabulous Designers! This sleek Nurse Betty outfit is brought to you by Brandy’s Boutique and you can get your copy for free just by joining the Fabulously Free in SL inworld group. How do I do that, you ask? Well, it’s easy! All you have to do is copy and paste the following link into local chat in your SL viewer: secondlife:///app/group/020fa7af-444d-f54f-01e2-557ec06315fd/about , hit enter and click on the link. Ta-da! Welcome to the group, now you’re ready to get your gift.

The Nurse Betty outfit consists of a chic, minimalistic body suit that comes in several different clothing layers for the classic avatar. I just love to mix and match as you know and really appreciate the additional layers (jacket, shirt, and tank layer for the top half of the outfit and pants and underwear layer for the bottom half) in case I want to wear anything additional on top of the outfit. There are several different appliers for mesh bodies included in the package as well such as the Belleza, Lena, Maitreya, Omega and Slink appliers. As an added bonus, the cute hat and stethoscope are included in the gift as well.

While there is a pair of red ballet straps contained in the Nurse Betty outfit that was a perfect fit for my Slink high feet, I’ve decided to show you another alternative. The beautiful coral pair of shoes pictured comes from Renegade Footwear and you can get them for free just by slapping the Midnight Mania board at the store. The board as a pretty low target number (25) and there is no group join needed to get in on the contest. In the package is not only shoes for Slink feet but for Belleza, Eve, Maitreya and TMP feet as well. The prize also contains a footbase and hud so that you can fiddle around with the color and look of your new shoes.

Cute accessories are another a weakness of mine and they don’t come any cuter than the aptly named Love Drug from Glutz. I had to resize the thigh straps a little so that it didn’t bite into the skin but lucky for me the Love Drug accessory is unrigged mesh and copayable so I was able to make some backups in case of mistakes. The gift comes with an extensive hud and you can spend hours experimenting and figuring out the perfect color combination. Best of all the Love Drug accessory is completely free. Just head on down to the Glutz main store to get the clue for the Quest Fur Cover Hunt that is running until the 31st of this month. Once you find the prize, buy for 0L.

Speaking of hunts did you know that there’s a really interesting one going on at 7 Deadly s{K}ins? I’m always looking for new hunt experiences and enjoy mulling over the clues so the Witch Hunt going on now at 7 Deadly s{K}ins was truly a fun experience. You’ll need to buy a hud for 1L at the front courtyard of the store and from there hunt for bones. Don’t worry the hud will help you keep track of which bones you’ve found and there’s a grand prize to be had as well. The skin I’m wearing in the picture above is one of the hunt prizes and is called Zara and comes in the tone taupe with cleavage and no cleavage options for classic skin. There are also appliers for Slink, Tango, Wowmeh and Phatazz included. I simply love the light dusting of freckles all over the skin’s face and body. The little details are always so spiffy aren’t they? The hunt at 7 Deadly s{K}ins lasts till the end of the month and there are prizes for guys as well so grab a friend and head on down.

I love October in Second Life.  The changing colors, haunted houses, amazing costumes, and the HUNTS!  Among many great events this fall is the CroM Halloween hunt!  Hidden around the store are 5 pumpkins priced at $5 L each, and each one contains a high quality Halloween themed item, including this dress (sized for standard sizes and most mesh bodies!)  The pumpkins are not too hard to find, and every single one has a great piece of clothing in it.


Kathryn recently showed you a lovely lip applier from Shiny Stuffs, and I was lucky enough to score a few freebies from there myself!  Currently in store Shiny Stuffs is giving away a Queen of Hearts makeup appliers set, and a Halloween Maitreya Nail applier fatpack!  I am modeling the spikey mascara and one of the 3 versions of eye liner here, as well as the candy skulls nails.  These little tidbits will make any Halloween costume pop.

A Truly Wicked Group Gift


Hello Fabulouses:).  Today I am stopping in real quick to share news about a group gift I picked up yesterday!

I am a big fan of the colour blue and when I saw the Rory Dress as a free group gift in slate blue (yes…  wearing a dress as a top again!) at Wicked, I snapped it up.  You can of course wear it as a dress, but these long legs of mine in Second Life often look like spaghetti strings in super short skirts, so I tend to break it up with a pair of stockings or leggings.  Wish I had that problem in RL…  Between you and I, I’m actually a shorty!

The Wicked inworld group is free to join and there are actually three group gifts up right now to pick up!

Mesh Body – Maitreya Lara

Enticing Polka Dots Paired with Spooktacular Shoes


Spooktacular Polka Dots

Greetings, Fabulous Readers!  I hope you are having a relaxing weekend.  After recovering from his traumatic experience at the V.E.T. last week, Ripley quickly bounced back and soon headed off, nose to the ground.  With nary a step off target, he led me directly to Entice and didn’t stop until he sat in front of the Midnight Mania board.  After looking up at the polka dot dress, then back at me, Ripley whined, then tapped the board with his paw.  I bet you know by now, I’ve learned it’s best to follow my pup where ever he takes me.  Sure enough, Rip’s intuition was right on the money.  When I logged in to SL the next day, I saw the inventory offer from Entice and set straight to opening the box and pulling out the Side to Side dress.

With its bright, circular pops of color splashed across a black background, and a red belt to accentuate the waist, this cheery dress offers a fun addition to your SL wardrobe and won’t put even the slightest ding in your budget.  The Midnight Mania board does require you to join the Entice group, but it’s free to join, and there are a bunch of lucky boards and gifts just waiting for members to claim.  On our way out, Ripley befriended this adorable Corgie in a lobster outfit and I had to take a quick snapshot of the little guy.  Isn’t he cute?

Cute Corgie

In search of the perfect accessories, the pupster and I journeyed over to Cae, one of my favorite jewelry stores.  As we arrived, I noticed the glowing Gacha Guardian Rune Stone right away.  Cae has a free charm bracelet set out and you can try your luck on the Gacha board for a plethora of Trick or Treat charms for 75L a turn.  From an adorable pumpkin, a spooky ghost, a witch hat, a spider, and my favorite, the silver cat (well, my name is Kat :P), these charms all magically attach to the free bracelet with the included HUD.  You can opt to wear Cae’s bracelet as a simple chain, snap on a single charm, or add as many as you like.  Now, I have to admit, Gacha machines are my nemesis and Ripley’s eyes became a bit worried as I was determined to get…. that….cat….charm.  It didn’t take long, though, and I soon had a jingly charm bracelet to add a Halloween theme to my outfit.


All that was left was a cute pair of shoes.  Ripley and I had read Astrid’s post here about the Spooktacular Goth Hunt over at Swank Events, and decided to check it out.  After a short time of searching, we discovered the black rose containing the free prize from Ghostyss, which is this gorgeous pair of Carrie heels for slink high feet.  I particularly like the way these sweet black shoes have a thin cord that wraps around your ankles and ties in an adorable bow on the back.  There are numerous black roses scattered around the Swank Events show room, in designer’s booths and cleverly hidden all around, so look everywhere and you will discover LOTS of prizes, all set for sale at 0L.  The hunt runs until October 31st.

Now, Ripley must have some Blood Hound coursing through his veins, because after we finished at Spooktacular, he was off and running toward another hunt, with me scrambling to keep up with his racing paws.  This time, he led me to LaBoheme for the Halloween Hunt, which is a 1L hunt that runs through November 2nd.  All you have to do is locate the glowing jack o’lantern cleverly concealed in the store and soon you’ll have two sets of nail polish for Slink, Omega and Maitreya.  I’m wearing the “Dark Passion” polish (this shade is one of the ten colors in the HUD) for this outfit, but in the hunt prize, you also get a spooky Catacomb polish as well).

A trip to Black Basalt Beach was a perfect way to end the day.  Ripley and I explored the lovely grounds, had fun playing fetch and followed some shy deer across a log suspended over a gully.  There are so many sights to see at this beautiful sim.  If you have free time and love to visit SL locations, I encourage you to check it out.  Until next Sunday, happy shopping, my friends!

Hello, once again dear Readers and welcome to the second edition of Edi’s Costume Ideas. I know, I know it’s probably not the snazziest of segment names but let’s get down to business, shall we? Today I bring to you the fantastically flowery Day of the Dead corset. This dramatic outfit is the new group gift from BlueMoon Enterprise and one that you can snap up for free just by joining the group. There is no sign-up fee so all you have to do is click and enjoy! With its color scheme of deep reds and blacks, this outfit is certain to be eye-catching.

I love the wonderful extras that come along with this gift. Together with the mesh corset, you will receive mesh garters, a mesh lace necklace, and panties just to name a few for starters. Aside from the panties, which comes in only system layers the corset, garters and necklace come in five standard mesh sizes (XXS-L). Don’t worry about anything poking out though as both the corset and necklace come with spiffy alpha layers. Now comes the fun part, as you can choose to wear the outfit as is or add a bit of flowery flair to it using the different flower attachments that can be found in the package. Points of attachments are the waist, neck, and hair (not pictured) and you can mix and match to your heart’s content.

If by any chance the outfit is not already dramatic enough for you, you can add the waist sash and the train. In this age of mesh that we all live our Second Lives in I must admit that I don’t have a lot of flexi things in my inventory but the train is so much fun and I love the way it moves and swishes behind you.

To tie the whole look together I put on the White Stag mask from Hextraordinary that you can get by playing the store’s gacha machine at the Salem macabre market and gacha gallows. It’s 50L per play and there are so many great masks up for grabs. I’ll probably be heading over again just to see if I can win one of the rare ones! And speaking of gacha, the hair pictured is from Analog Dog’s latest offering at The Epiphany. I’m a lover of odd colors and tints for hair and was very pleased that this one comes with a number of different highlights.

However, if you don’t feel like wearing a mask, the Day of the Dead outfit comes with its own makeup layer. It’s aptly named Sugar Skull and it’s eye-popping colors stand out even if, like me, you’d like to hide in the shadows for a while.

Well! I’m off to see if there are other costumes to sniff out. Wish me luck and I’ll catch you later!

Use Your Card!

Wondering what to do with that 150L inworld gift card you picked up at MOoH! as a group gift?  How about this snuggly belted sweater dress in blue that is on sale for 99L currently?🙂.

I used the gift card I picked up this month to pay for it, and it was free to me!  This group is 100L to join, but when you do, you gain access to monthly group gifts [October’s Group Gift Blogged Here], an entry to a group only raffle and a 150L store gift card!  Of course you aren’t limited to this item – you can use it on anything in the store, and in fact…  I used it once at an event that MOoH was participating in on one of their items so you aren’t even just limited to their mainstore!

This particular dress comes in XXS-L sizes with an extra set of shorter arm sizes in case your sleeves are too long.  An alpha layer is included for those on the system body!

Perfectly Posh in Pearls

Glancing Back

Happy Saturday, wonderful readers!  This morning, Ripley and I started our weekend the way we always do… reading the Fabulously Free in SL blog.  While I was admiring Loki’s sensuous photo here, Ripley insistently nosed the Group Gift Listing link in the corner of the Fab Free web page.  Of course, with my pooch’s gift for finding fashion, I immediately followed his lead and discovered not one, but two, new, free, fabulous gifts for Fab Free group members that, in my mind, coordinate with each other spectacularly.

With a few quick teleports and clicks, I became the proud new owner of Posh Tale’s free, elegant Margot gown and Tiffany Designsfree back necklace.   The opulent sheen of the double stranded pearls contrasts beautifully with the subtle shimmer of the floor length, formal gown.  From the front, the necklace appears to be a traditional pearl strand, but from behind, it drapes beautifully and emphasizes the line of your back.  I love the way the dress leaves my shoulders bare to feel the caress of the moonlight.  The gown includes a HUD that allows you to select one of 16 colors, and comes in 5 sizes for classic avatars.  Although there was no applier for mesh bodies, I was able to wear the gown just fine by adjusting the alpha on my Maitreya Lara body.  After adding simple pearl studs from Caroline’s jewelry, and slipping on some black heels (more on these shoes in my blog post coming tomorrow), I accompanied Ripley to the outdoor ballroom at the Invictus sim.

Perfectly Posh

While the night breeze ruffled Ripley’s fur, we wandered around the grounds of this beautifully decorated sim, which is inspired by the poem of the same name by William Ernest Henley.  It’s a Linden Endowment for the Arts exhibit and is well worth exploring.  I discovered the Invictus sim by reading this blog post by Ziki Questi.  It has more in depth information if you are interested, and is enjoyable to read.  Periodically, falling stars blazed a trail across the purple and mauve streaked sky while we walked around.  Legend has it that if you wish upon a shooting star, your wish will come true.  Here’s hoping that all your wishes come true this weekend.  Until tomorrow, happy shopping!

It’s Pretty Much Legging Weather

Good morning Fabulous Readers!  I hope you are enjoying your weekend so far🙂.  I am popping by today to tell you about the latest free group gift at BlackRose!

The BlackRose inworld group is free to join and after you have activated that group tag above your head you can pick up the Sweater Dress you see me wearing today in a beautiful orchid shade.  I decided to wear it with a pair of leggings (because you know it’s pretty much “legging weather” [See this video for legging enlightenment and a giggle]) with my sweater dress, but it is indeed long enough to wear just as a dress if you like.  This gift comes in XXS – L mesh sizing with co-ordinating alpha layer.

As the collar of this top is rather large, you are going to need either an updo hairstyle or a little bob so that your hair doesn’t cut through your top.  I went with Elua’s Lucie that is available at this round of The Epiphany for 75L per play.

I found it made a nice match to my new House of Ruby briefs. The other gifts at Pixel Box were just as nice, and included both ladies and gents, and you can’t go wrong with FREE.
