FabFree Designer of the Day - IAF

IAF has a great sales room were everything is to be had for only 10L. I picked these sheer beaded tops as an example but there’s lots of things for sale. Including a ton of tattoos with Omega, Phat Azz, Wowmeh and Sking/Brazilia appliers. The IAF group is FREE to join and there are two FREE gifts set out for group members.

An Enchanted Oceane

The Enchantment Hunt drew me back again, as well as the chance to show off some fabulous goodies at two other stores. If your into cosplay or fantasy roleplay… this is your month to make away like a bandit — or mermaid as the case may be!

Enchanted Oceane [2]

I recently checked out the FREE Ball at Analog Dog and discovered it had been updated. There are a few new styles inside, including this great rigged mesh style called Lolly all for FREE. It comes in light reds with a color change hud and though you have to hunt for the nearly transparent bubble at the back of the sim, it’s well worth the search!

I also stopped by Oceane and played the in-store Gachas which had some really wonderful prizes for lovers of fantasy avatars! My Oceane Lauren Fantasy Skin in Blue was a 75L gacha prize and was just perfect for this underwater look — but don’t hesitate to check this one out even if blue is not your color, because the gacha had 19 total colors as possible prizes. It does not come with appliers, but don’t let that deter you. I usually have a difficult time matching skins without them, but was able to match this skin to my Slink hands within minutes because the shading near the wrists is made to blend so easily.

I also played the Oceane Fairytale Lips gacha and landed the Rainbow Rare hook line and sinker to add to my skin. Woot! It was only 50L per spin and added a nice touch to this fantasy skin.

And all mermaids have to eat, yes? If you peek at the picture below, my fun Swallow Yum Fishie (20 possible colors) was a 15L Gacha prize also from Oceane.

And the Enchantment hunt continues, but only until September 5th, so be sure to make your final rounds to pick up the fabulous gifts before you miss out. In this post, I’m showcasing a few more for you! These two poses are the FREE hunt gifts from [Black Tulip] called Ariel. Astrid’s stunning mesh mermaid tail and bra are the FREE Enchantment gift from Mer-Chandise Cove.

You’ll have to look a little closer at the pictures to catch the final gifts I’m showing, but I’ve always been a firm believer that small details are what make an avatar stand out. My pink nose piercing (which comes with a color change hud offering over 20 color options as well as options to change glow, glossiness, and and brightness) is the FREE Enchantment Hunt Gift from Gaeline Creations.

If you take a swim by no.Match, you’ll be able to pick up this gorgeously detailed Mermaids Hairpin as their FREE offering for the Enchantment Hunt. And last (but certainly not least) Astrid’s mysterious, come-hither eyes are a FREE Enchantment Hunt gift from antielle. There are six generous color choices in the package, though I’m wearing the blue.

Back In Black!

82615 post

Here I am again, fresh from a one-week vacation. I am sporting the official color of men’s clothing on Second Life, so you know I am bringing my “A” game. “Blog or die!” that’s my motto. I would have it tattooed on my arm, but if I did, somewhere out there is a person with a name like Alfred J. Blog who would do something publicly embarrassing. Then I would have to pay again to get the tat removed. I blog hard, but I am also very practical. Oh, and cheap, too.

First up on my list of fantastic finds is this jacket from REDPANDA. The Leather Jacket With Shirt is currently offered as a very generous FREE group gift. It is a one piece mesh combo of the jacket and the simple T-shirt, a classic look for a male avy if there ever was one. My favorite color to wear it in is black, of course. However, REDPANDA includes a hud that gives you five additional color choices, along with an additional eight colors for the T-shirt. You can also forgo the Tee entirely by choosing “No Shirt” on the hud. Four sizes and a clearly-grained leather texture with excellent details, such as visible stitching and metallic zipper teeth, make this a FREE group gift worth picking up!

So, newly back from the glorious sunshine, I figured it was time for me to go wild, and what better item to go wild in than these pants from Deadly Mouse? Their 1L Fashion Play Hunt For Him gift is a great outfit called Over Limit. It includes these crazy pants, subdued in color while the pattern is bursting with energy and life! They come in five sizes. Plus, this hunt gift also includes a great mesh hoodie in slate blue with excellent folds making it look very soft. Honestly if you like realistic looking clothes, and you want a solid blue hoodie, you are going to love the one that is in this box! I am going to give you a hint to help you find the hunt prize, which I rarely do, because I really want as many of you as possible to find this: “This hunt object is so small, it might drive you INSANE!” The hunt object is a small blue and black rectangle, and it’s easy. I promise.

I don’t wear jewelry often, so when I find something I have to like it immensely in order to consider posting it. Such is the case for the necklace I am wearing today. The Trophy Necklace from IT! (Indulge Temptation!) definitely fulfills that criterion and more. The Trophy Necklace comes with a hud giving you seven choices for the colors of the beads and it is materials enabled. This 1L Fashion Play Hunt For Him gift is the perfect accessory for the “Wild thing” mood I am in today! Pick this up to go with some casual and beachwear outfits. It’s a great find.

I am wearing another fantastic FREE skin gift from the Midnight Mania Board at Tellaq. I have mentioned them before since they are one of the best sources for men’s skins on the grid (also one of the most generous). Join the FREE group at the front of the main store and run to the back of the store to tap that MM board. Where else can you get a skin this good, and in sixteen facial hair variations with bonus goodies thrown in FOR FREE? Seriously, if you are a guy on SL, make this a regular stop, and ladies, please give it a tap now and then to help us guys out. The target is high, usually requiring 500 slaps, but the board does close regularly and the gifts are outstanding.

While you are checking out that close up of the devilishly handsome guy in the picture above, take a good look at his eyes. These are the current FREE Group Gift eyes from IKON, one of my favorite eye merchants on the grid. Just yesterday Love posted them here, but they look just as great on male avies too. These IKON Unisex Triumph Eyes in Armor have a combination of brown and tan tones in them and if you click my pic twice, you should be able to zoom in to see them in spectacular detail. The IKON group is FREE to join and I heartily encourage you to do so.

Lastly, for what seems to be a week jam-packed with great gifts and prizes to grab, Alli&Ali Designs are participating in the Fashion Play For Him Hunt as well. Their FREE gift is the stylish Roman Hair that I am wearing. It is offered in eleven colors and has an option for streaks in the hair to make it more versatile. Depending on your skin, you might want to find a hairbase from your inventory to wear with it to give it a more finished look like I did. The box does not include one, and it is not required as it looks great without one.

That’s it for this marathon post! You can tell I missed all of you since I had this many items saved up to share. We are nearing the end of the month, so if you see something you might want, go get it as soon as possible. The Fashion Play For Men Hunt ends August 31st. Until next time everyone, take care and see you on the grid!—–WHC Riler

Playing With My Heart

Snapshot_004 Hi there Fabulous readers!  It may be Monday, but it’s nothing a SL shopping therapy can’t fix, right?

If you are digging the denim topped summer dress I am in today, you can snag yourself a copy of the Playing With My Heart Dress in a full fatpack of colours as a free group gift at B!asta after you activate your inworld B!asta group tag.  The group is 50L to join, but that’s nothing for a whole fatpack of these great frocks!  They also have a great midnight mania board prize which is open to everyone, so if you aren’t wanting to pay the 50L group join fee, you can still go slap the MM board without any fees.

I thought these Leather Sandals by Aphorism that are available at Shiny Shabby matched my new dress, spot on.  They are 50L per play and you really can’t go wrong with any of the styles!  My faves are the rare sandals, but even the commons are fab!

Hope your Monday treats you well :)

The Draw to Enchantment

“Do you hear the call of the waves below?
Or the way the fishes move in the flow?
To Sea! To Sea! The Seagulls do caw.
From somewhere she answers…
She answers their call.
Can you see the foam layered on sand?
Or feel the way it creeps up your hand?
Her curls shine…Shine bright in the sun.
She smiles and dances…
She dances for fun.
She’s ready to share her treasure with you.
Though you’ll need to find it.
Before the others do.”
[Poem courtesy of the Enchantment Hunt]

The Draw of Enchantment [1]

I’ll be honest… I’m not one for hunts. (I’m one of those people who has a terrible time finding where I last left my glasses in real life, let alone finding a hunt item in SL!) But this Hunt drew me in the minute I saw the amazing line up of designers and the gorgeous gifts, and I knew I had to share it with you! Especially as every one of these hunt gifts are FREE. Just find the little purple shell, click it, and viola! You’ve found your prize!

The theme of the Enchantment Hunt is little mermaid. I found you a simply amazing mesh tail for only 50L at The Muses that works great with the mesh Maitreya Lara body (which is what I have) as well as system bodies (you can see the tail in the picture above.) The Muses sells their tail in two styles — Ianthe or Ondine and you can get either style in an amazing array of colors from either their Marketplace store or their in-world store. I admit to grabbing mine from the Marketplace simply for the convenience.

The shot above is also a great view of half of the gift you’ll find if you stop by .aisling. as you swim through this great hunt. Their gift composed of two parts: a pose and a prop. The picture above gives you a clear shot of the pose… the siren or mermaid reaching out to draw in her prey… the picture below gives you a good picture of the second half of .aisling’s. gift — a stunning dagger with an intricately detailed hilt for you to hold.

The Draw of Enchantment [2]

The Hunt includes 23 amazing stops — far too many for me to showcase in one post. But I tried to hit several to give you an idea of just how amazing these gifts really are. This skin by Lumae called Adore – Eione // Anemone (notice the amazing details with the scales on the skin?!) came with every applier imaginable, as well as different color brow options and was also part of the Hunt.

My tiara is an Enchantment Hunt gift courtesy of PurpleMoon Creations and when I stumbled upon it, I fell in love — not just with the detailing and style but with the thoughtfulness of the creator who added a color-change hud! There are 12 gem color options and 5 metal options!

My mesh pearls and sexy star seashell modesty breast covers are an Enchantment Hunt gift from [Glitzz] and just as generous as the other gifts as they included an easy to use resize script that made them easy to fit to my avatar’s shape. I loved that I did not have to modify my avatar to fit these items, but instead I could modify these items to fit my avatar.

Last but not least — it’s not a hunt item, but I found a fabulous gift from you from Alice Project! They have put out a promo on the marketplace as a FREE gift for customers called Summertime Sadness in a special set of Mini Medley colors. I chose this lovely pastel pink to complete my look, but there were lots of great colors on the hud. And as always, this mesh style from Alice project is just breathtaking!

Overall It’s Been A Great Summer!

Snapshot_002

Good morning everyone :) I am taking advantage of the last few days of summer in this adorable overall/top set that Meli Imako put out as a free gift in her marketplace store.  This is a full perm set for builders, but heck – you can wear it as it comes and if you have any kind of designing talent (which I don’t!) you can play around with the colours too!  I am not sure how much longer this will be available – so grab it quick!

Enjoy your weekend!

Beautifully Basic

BDRGGs
Hey Fabulous readers!! I have had a crazy busy week and have been a bit absent from the grid, but I did come across a couple of things that I wanted to blog up really quick for you because they are must have basics for any woman’s inventory, no matter what kind of body you are wearing!

Beautiful Dirty Rich has two free group gifts out right now with no join fee!  The Dreamer Jeans are displayed on the top, and the Absence of Fear Jeans are displayed on the bottom.  The main difference between the two pairs is that the Dreamer Jeans are a little lower in the waist.   Both of the gifts are denim blue jeans that come with a ton of options like different pocket styles, ankle cut or sock cut, and a trillion appliers that will work with most mesh body systems.  They even come with system layers in case you are mesh bodyless.

There are three things that I really like about applier jeans:

  •  They apply directly to your personal shape allowing you to show off your own curves.
  •  Sometimes wearing a mesh top or jacket interferes with mesh jeans.  This solves that issue.
  •  They easily sit inside any pair of boots because you can use the alpha system to clear some leg away if need be.

ps.  The Halter Top is also by Beautiful Dirty Rich and I picked it up, including a texture change hud with tons of choices for 1L just next to the group gifts.
