Once Upon a Midnight Dreary

Nevermore

Hello Fabulouses!  Since Ripley and I found some fantastic hunt prizes lately, we decided to hit the trail once again.  This time, we set out along the Quoth the Raven Hunt path.  Over at Little 2 Large, we discovered this fabulous gown, and it only cost 1 little Linden dollar, plus a bit of searching time.  On the wall of the shop, you’ll find a hunt poster, which contains a helpful hint in case you get stuck.

With Many a Flirt and Flutter, In There Stepped a Stately Raven

The stately raven over at Little 2 Large actually brought *more* than just the gown in my picture.  In addition to a splendid frock, you’ll also receive male and female Dinkies outfits (Dinkies are these absolutely adorable mesh kitty avatars that you may have seen around the grid), a coordinating Nevermore men’s suit, and a petite Nevermore mini dress.  The additional prizes are no transfer, but if your man happens to come along with you on the hunt, for just 1 more Linden dollar, you can look all matchy-matchy.  As you can see from my picture, the gown starts out black at the bodice, but transitions into a soft gray texture, which reminded me of watercolors.  I really love the intricate black lace that adorns the sexy, full length slits in the skirt as well as the generous hemline.  The “sleeves” on the bodice resemble black feathers, and the package also included shoulder feathers that I opted not to wear.  For just a dollar, this fabulous hunt prize will have you all set up for formal fall parties, whether you have a classic or a mesh body avatar.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fitmesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layer)
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Physique

Ripley has taken to growling at that beguiling Raven, for that bird (to quote from Poe himself):

“…never flitting, still is sitting, STILL is sitting…

just above my chamber door…”

I’d better see if I can help the pupster escape unharmed from “The Raven.”  Until next time, happy hunting!

Rose Red

The Succubus
Hello There Fab Free, I hope your weekend has been fabulous. This slinky red dress by Scandalize had me feeling darkly romantic. It’s the free group gift at the Vanity Event. I paired it with this cool 10 linden skull septum piercing by Venge that I picked up at The Mad Circus Gacha. Keep reading for more information about these two fabulous finds, or scroll down to the credits to the where and how much. ❤

The Dress – This sexy red dress is the free Vanity Event group gift by Scandalize. You’ll find it waiting just inside the entrance to the event. Just join the free-to-join Vanity Event group, and click the gift vendor. The dress comes in the solid matte color shown, and a red glittery version.

Sizes Included: Belleza (Freya, Isis), Slink Hourglass, Maitreya Lara

The Piercing – I think this septum piercing by Venge added just the right amount of sinister to Pru’s look. The little skull has red jeweled eyes, and a red gemstone fangs. My apologies, my photo doesn’t convey either of those details. This cool accessory is just 10 linden at The Mad Circus Gacha Fair.

Here are the details, enjoy!

The Boo Bunny Cast a Spell on Me

My Favorite Color is October

Hello Fab Free!  Ripley and I are wrapping up a week of vacation, but before we head back to our normal routine, I wanted to share with you one of our discoveries from the Boo Bunny Hunt.  It cost just one Linden dollar and includes both my cropped top and curve hugging pants.  One thing I love about this find is the fact that it is covered with a printed design that fits right in with the witchcrafty-season we are in, but is subtle enough so this is an outfit you will be able to wear well past Halloween.

Magical Runes

Over at the Indigenous Designs shop, the pupster and I discovered the hunt object, a piece of Halloween candy, after just a short time spent searching.  After opening the package, I was delighted to discover details such as the unfastened buckle on the top, and the generous cut of the sleeves and lower cuffs on the pants.  One of my favorite hues to wear in RL is this deep shade of forest green, but it can often be too dark without additional pops of color.  The gold tones in the printed design on the Devil’s Runes Outfit provided just the right amount of contrast and seasonal flair.  Long pants, full length sleeves, and a half turtle neck collar ensure you’ll stay cozy on brisk autumn days, while the short hem of the top allows for a cheeky glimpse of skin.  With versions for classic as well as mesh avatars, there’s something in this hunt prize for everyone.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, and L (includes separate alpha layers for pants and top)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • EBody
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

Although we enjoyed our fall break vacation, Ripley and I missed you all, and are looking forward to sharing more Fabulous Finds with our favorite readers.  Until our next post, happy hunting!

Delacruz Park

Delacruz Park
Hello and happy weekend Fab Free’rs! I’m so excited about bringing you posts not only about free and fabulously inexpensive items, but places you can go to have fun without spending your linden as well. Delacruz Park is a recent discovery of mine that I believe is one of Second Life’s many lesser-know but amazing locations. It’s a small but fully functioning amusement and adventure park. Most if not all of the rides and attractions are for sale, but you can experience them for free in this beautifully landscaped setting. You can even see the neon blue roller coaster in the background of the above photo! Also, I love that Delacruz Park is all decked out for the fall season.

Delacruz Park Ferris Wheel View
Delacruz Park is family friendly, however it would also be a fun spot for date night or an afternoon with friends. I already mentioned the roller coaster, this second photo was taken from high up in the working Ferris Wheel. If you look closely you can spot a few of the other attractions such as the Hot Air Balloon ride, the must-see mini Stone Hinge setup. I could continue to list the number of things to see and do at Delacruz park, however half the fun is discovering all this beautiful spot has to offer. Also, I’m sure I’d absentmindedly leave something out!

Along with this destination recommendation, Pru is wearing a couple of past group gifts that are still available. If you’re interested in her look, you can check the credits below!

Seasonal

Seasonal

So, Readers,  I didn’t make it back to the beach. But I did find a more ‘seasonal’ place to hang out for a bit. Nothing like shirking work in an Autumnal SIM.  Of course… it is haunted. But nothing’s perfect.

Making the Summit

I did run across a great Hunt while avoiding Juli. The Psycho Pumpkin Hunt from Gossip!Hunts is a 1L hunt with Female, Male and Unisex prizes running until October 27th. I picked up this shirt, ‘Summit’,  from Horr Men’s Wear as their Hunt prize. Just look for the black and orange frosted cupcake and it’s yours.

Sizes Included

  • Adam
  • Aesthetic
  • David
  • Gianni
  • Jake
  • SLink
  • Standard Mesh XS – XL
  • TMP

 

Maybe I can find a few more Hunts before Juli tracks me down.

Cheers,
Gabriel St.James

Lovers in a Dangerous Space Time

Lovers in a Dangerous Space Time

Hello hello Fab Free’rs, and happy hump day! There are a few days left of the current round of Sanarae and if you haven’t been yet, you need to go! Each of the participating designers, save one or two, has out a free gift for Sanarae group members, and the Sanarae group is free to join. Yep, free, no join fees. I picked out several of the many gifts to share with you along with a gacha or two. So to keep this from being a super long post, I’ll get right to the info! Also, there have been a few other posts featuring Sanarae gifts which I’ll be sure to link below in case you missed them.

Kokoro – The Sanarae gift from Kokoro is this adorable headband with 2 of my favorite things, horns, and bat wings! The gift is free, unisex, and can be resized. Just wear your Sanarae group tag and click the gift box at the Kokoro booth.

Go&See – Not all tears are sad. These tint-able tears are the free Sanarae gift from Go&See. The gift comes in appliers only. There is an Omega applier, and a Catwa applier in the package.

S0NG – These dark lovely eyes are part of the free Sanarae group gift by S0NG. The eyes come in a mesh set, classic layer, and an applier for Catwa mesh eyes. Also included with the S0NG gift is a simple black eyeliner applier for Catwa heads.

AMITOMO – The AMITOMO gift is one of my favorites of the free Sanarae group gifts. These cute heart dangle earrings have the word “Love” scrawled across them. Seriously, they are adorable. The earrings have a hud that lets you choose from several colors for the text, and a few metal tones for the rest.

Also from AMITOMO is this cute harnessed shirt-dress. It is part of their LoveHolic gacha at the Sanarae event. The dress comes with a color/texture change hud for the harness straps and bits. The hud allows you to pick from various cute text. The leg strap Pru is wearing is also from the same gacha and gives you the choice of colors and textures to match the dress. The AMIMOTO LoveHolic gacha is just 69 linden per pull.

I also found some new feathery friends. This is one of four poses in EniiPoses Halloween Special pack. The set comes with the crows and a tall candle (not shown here) all for 15 Lindens.  The special has been up for a bit and may come down any day. So if you want a great spooky pose and a few new friends hurry over.

To get yours, head over to Belle Epoque and join the in-store group. There is a one time join fee of 10 linden,

We’re Spending Fall Break at the Beach

Day One of Fall Break

Hello Fabulouses!  I’m popping in tonight with a quick post which is rather time sensitive.  The adorable micro skirt and tied top I’m wearing in my photo are only up for grabs for a special price until tomorrow.  Anny’s Fashion is offering this cute set as their Syndicate Sunday offering for this week, but if you like it, you’ll have to quickly scamper over to the shop because the event only continues through October 9th.

I Know Fall’s Here, But…. Beaches in SL….

I’m as much into the Halloween season as the rest of the Fab bloggers, but Ripley has been pestering me to take him to the beach so he can indulge in playing hide and seek with seagulls, and a girl has to have a sweet skimpy outfit for the sand and surf, am I right?  The best part of SL is being able to visit a chilly autumn sim one moment, and then -poof- teleporting to a summer oasis the next.  For just 60 Linden dollars, Anny’s Fashion had me all set for a lazy day soaking up the sun in my new Loren outfit.   It features a sassy micro skirt (you’ll need panties under this one for sure) and a knotted cropped top.  The generous designer tucked a texture change HUD packed with 20 options for the skirt and 25 for the top inside the box, so you will be able to create quite a variety of looks with just this one purchase.  With both classic and mesh body versions, I’m sure you’ll find the right fit for your avatar.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XXS, SS, S, M, and L (includes alpha layer)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

Well, there’s a pelican here giving me the stink eye, so I think maybe Rip overstepped his boundaries.  The gulls are up for a game, but pelicans can be a bit grumpy.  I’d better collect the rascal and head on home.  Until next time, happy shopping!
