Sweet Lies on the Throne

Sweet Lies on the Throne 1

“War was easier than daughters.” [Ned Stark – Game of Thrones]

Daffy’s GadgetMania has decided to participate in the Get To Know Us Hunt and is generously serving up three FREE glorious prizes… this throne called Gift 2-DS-666 Gothic/Gorean Throne being one of the three. It is fit for a king… or a Queen… or a man home from war with too many daughters who needs to relax a little. It has tons of poses built into the main seat and on the sides as well (on the pillows) and against the arms and the entire kit and kaboodle is only 13 prim. For a huge throne this detailed, that’s impressive! And less stressful for Ned Stark than war OR daughters!

Now, prewarning… these three hunt prizes by Daffy’s GadgetMania are FREE… but the hunt is not for the faint of heart. The store is adult themed in a bit of a horror type manner. The hunt itself is based on a series of clues within the store and is a set of steps before the prize reveals itself. If haunted houses or disturbing images are too much for you, this store’s hunt is not for you (I did the rest of the stores on this mini hunt and they were not gruesome, only this one). The prize is worth it, but I don’t want anyone to say “why didn’t you warn me about the blood?!” Well… aren’t many thrones won by a sword, spear, and blood? (At least in Game of Thrones, right?)

Sweet Lies on the Throne 2

“Life is not a song, Sweetling. You may learn that one day to your sorrow.” [Littlefinger to Sansa Stark – Game of Thrones]

You may not decide to sing a song in this lovely toga style dress called Lucrecia Green by Sweet Lies (which comes in the style shown or in a more risky adult style that shows much much more skin) but you’ll look daring and beautiful rather in song or in sorrow while wearing it — whether it be next to the throne or sitting on it.  Better yet, this fabulous get up comes with jewelry included (a necklace, armlets, and anklets) and is FREE by slapping the Midnight Mania board at Sweet Lies. The board requires group membership but that too is FREE, fear not and cry not!

The dress is mesh, comes in all the standard mesh sizes and is perfect for roleplay. The jewelry comes in both scripted and unscripted versions for re-sizing and the scripted versions have an option to remove the script once you are done to save on lag. It’s a sweet deal from Sweet Lies!

Sweet Lies on the Throne 3

“Freedom means making your own choices.” [Daenerys – Game of Thrones]

… and I choose to sit on the throne! At least briefly. And in this lovely little number called Etel by Sweet Lies, which is another FREE offering currently up on the Midnight Mania Boards. Again, you’ll need the group (FREE join) to slap the board, but this Mesh outfit in all the standard sizes with all its included accessories is worth the group space and the time to slap the board. Don’t miss out!

There are six total Midnight Mania boards up if neither of these outfits catch your fancy! Be sure to see if you like any of the others available! I managed to snag and close down 4, but am only showing 2 here. There is also one up for guys!

Sweet Lies on the Throne 4

“You could rattle the stars. You could do anything, if only you dared. And deep down you know it, too. That’s what scares you most.” [Elena – Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas.]

If you are looking for something more queenly, more stately, more fierce… I have just the look for you. In this attire any woman could rattle the stars.

Sweet Lies currently has a gorgeous array of 30L gachas available in-store. I found two that were simply my favorite and paired them together to get this look. The dress is called Tauriel and the detailing is amazing (can you believe this is one of the commons? Imagine the rares!) and for 30L a spin you are getting an amazing deal. These dresses are also fitmesh (swoons).

I paired the dress with a 30L spin on the Savage Spring Armor & Crown Gacha and was granted a Rusty Gold which was a perfect match for my look. For just 30L you get both the pauldrons AND the matching crown in the box (woot! woot!) and you don’t have to spin multiple times to try to match the two like with many gachas. So I simply adored this gacha and this outfit pairing! A deal for sure!

Wistfully Reflecting Upon My Salad Days…

Anims rising salad 1_001

Oh, my reckless SL youth! Those crazy days when I once wore a costume very much like this and danced on a pole at a club. It was a very odd time, but even back then I was very “Me”. In particular, I recall some rather dubious emoting capped with my all time favorite self observation. Shouting “Hey look, I’m a salad!” to the audience, my sexiness knew no bounds in those early days…

I am still having great fun unpacking prizes from The Spooky Nights Hunt, Presented By Firestorm. Animations Rising has put out an amazing FREE gift for the hunt, one too big for me to adequately describe. In fact, it took days for me to unpack it! It includes 55 male outfits from both the Rising Tribal and Rising Silks series and another 24 female ensembles. They seem to be pre-Mesh but they are bursting with extras and special effects particle sets, which could be especially useful when putting together your own costume and role-play outfits. The Rising Tribal – Gaius II – outfit is a tribute to the Greek Mother Goddess. The vines and leaves that wrap around the body are objects to wear rather than simply clothing layers. This means there is depth to them as opposed to looking inked or painted on. The dark green modesty pouch is very sexy but it does not conceal a great deal of you so carrying a large green houseplant or two might be useful to help keep covered up on sims that frown on something this revealing. This is outrageous clothing, so do me proud and if you wear it, try extra hard to make it memorable for everyone around you. My bet is that will be a task easily accomplished!

animations rising youth 2_001

The Youth is another FREE gift included in Animations Rising‘s Spooky Nights Hunt Prize. It is the epitome of simplicity, consisting of an excellent loincloth, a wrist band and a leg band. Inspired by and featuring indigenous influences, there are an additional 7 outfits from the Rising Tribal series included in this enormous prize. For the pic above, I appropriated the spear from the warrior costume. First of all, I needed a weapon to give me that menacing look. Secondly, I wanted to point to the big white feathers adorning it and shout “Biggest…chicken…ever!”

The picture above also features the face paint from Fallen Gods Inc. It is another excellent FREE hunt item from The Spooky Nights Hunt and comes in four color schemes: Toxic, Magic, Flames and Doom. I chose to wear Doom with The Youth because it is dark and ashy, giving me a more primal and menacing look. This is an excellent pick up because it is a perfect finishing touch for a costume. Whether you intend to go out clubbing or prefer to role play, it will probably be a useful addition to your wardrobe.

whc solar 5_001

This final pic is of a silk outfit called Rising Silks – Solar , yet another prize from the Animations Rising massive FREE Spooky Nights Hunt Gift. Quite a few sexy male silks are included and some of them, such as “Solar”, include amazing particle light shows which are customizable and can be turned off if you prefer. You have to love a creator who says “In short, Rising Silks are designed to be SEXY, and that means, to ride very low on the hips, and cover as little as possible, while still being elegant and masculine.” This is some seriously creative stuff, and in this gift you will find an incredible variety of useful items.

This concludes my weekly chance to try to get away with showing as much skin as possible. If you haven’t started hunting yet, The Spooky Nights Hunt, Presented By Firestorm is a wonderful way to begin. The hunt object you are looking for is a skull, and Animations Rising is store number 16 on the Wicked path. Fallen Gods Inc. is store number 1 on the Bones path. With the holiday season in progress now, this is the time to pick up some fantastic freebies hunting. Take care and see you on the grid!—–WHC Riler

Mixin’ & Matchin’

Greetings once again Fabulous Folks.

Mixy Matchy

I am so loving all the Fall related hunts going on right now. I can hardly choose everything I want to show off! So today’s look is a nice mix match of three different hunts that came together soooo nicely.  First are my FREE cardigan and socks from The Cheeky Parrot Boutique in the Warm Socks Hunt. This cozy set comes with the cardigan sweater and the thigh high stockings with the attached shoes.  happily, I had some cute things to complete the outfit in my over stuffed Inventory.

Next is this great bag from Illi. The ‘Hunt Handbag’ is the prize for the 1L “Touch But Don’t Bite My Pumpkin Hunt” which features one of the most disturbing pumpkins I’ve ever seen on their website…. O.O

And ‘last’ is my gorgeous necklace called “The Last Rose” from IT! for the Leaves are Falling 1L Hunt. The beautifully detailed rose comes in four metals to choose from. IT – Indulge Temptation! has been designing several items lately that will match “Last Rose” perfectly… so take a quick look around the store while you’re there.

Mixy Matchy

All three of these Hunts run until November 30th… which is sneaking up on us… so hurry out there and get your Hunt on!

The sassy top comes in mesh sizes XXS to L and a Maitreya version.

The celebration continues with new November Group Gift – the SweetTea ‘Jeggings’ in Deep Turquois that match the top perfectly. The Gift comes with two pairs of jeggings the turquois ones and a pair of eggplant purple as well.

Entice Me With Geometry

Math has never been my thing. But this week, Entice has made geometry sexy. Let me show you how to find your inner mathematician…..

Entice Me With Geometry 1

I’m definitely not the algebra queen. But the gifts at Entice right now focus on Geometric shapes. So that became the focus of my wardrobe for the week, and the results were an equation of both equal drama and flair.

As seen above, the Entice Now and Forever Dress in Stars (mesh in all the standard sizes – plus a color change hud for 3 color options) made a great starting point for my first look. The group is FREE to join and this gift was also FREE making it a no brainer in the math department when I added up my savings. You will have to pay the vendor 1L to get the gift, but it immediately refunds your 1L back to you.

Entice Me With Geometry 2

And as if it wasn’t enough for Entice to make me a star, they are also giving out this fabulous Dress called Aztec. It too comes in all the standard mesh sizes and with a color change hud with three color options for great versatility. Again, I loved the geometric patterns which made it dramatic… add in the fact that it has a sequined look (without the dreaded bling affect) and it works great for a fantastic evening cocktail or party dress, yet also remains casual enough for every day wear. I was seriously impressed!

Like the Now and Forever Stars Dress, the Aztec Dress is a FREE Group Gift and the Entice Group is FREE to join, adding up to a nice no cost gift for your wardrobe. Again, you do have to pay the vendor 1L to get the gift, but your 1L will be refunded immediately. Definitely worth it!

Entice Me With Geometry 5

To add to my looks (pun intended) I needed a few accessories. I found a few deals here and there  (highlighted in the pictures above) that you won’t want to miss out on.

My Slink nail appliers (called Frosty Berry) in both these pictures are the current group gift FREE at Hello Dave. The group is also FREE to join, making this gift a delightful sum total of a happy Astrid! There were six total frosty colors included in the hud.

I paired my Star Studded Geometric look with a Marketplace find from Whimsical Happenings — this Skyliner Necklace and Earring set. The earrings are difficult to see with my hair, but are lovely star-shaped studs. The necklace is easily resizable for any avatar shape and the entire set only 2L!

My lovely square set is by BricOle’s Designs, which has become one of my go-to designers for great low cost, high quality jewelry. This necklace and earring set, called simply “Square” in red and brown, was only 30L on the Marketplace and matched my Aztec dress with perfect mathematic precision.


How to add some drama and flair to your wardrobe…

Body – Maitreya Lara Mesh Body

Firestorm Brings Us Spooky Nights!

whc td church2_001

Happy Wednesday everyone, and Happy Veteran’s Day to my American friends! Hunting has picked up on the grid lately and right now there are plenty of great items to be had for FREE or at a minimal price. This week I concentrated on the Spooky Nights Hunt presented by Firestorm. With close to 150 FREE hunt gifts spread out over five Firestorm sims, there is definitely enough hunting to keep a person busy (especially when the person in question loves to find freebies!)

The FREE Spooky Nights Hunt prize from Tiffany Designs is a highly smart-looking Mesh garment. The TD Bruno Mesh Blazer is a one piece mesh jacket with the shirt and tie integrated into it. While provided with it is a white pair of slacks, I feel that it really shines with a pair of black dress pants that I pulled from my inventory. The textures are done well and look natural, as if they are separate items of clothing. For the Spooky Nights Hunt, the hunt object you are looking for is a skull. This particular hunt prize has the unusual name “FS-SNH-Bones -Ripple stud Watchers Design I.” It is actually store number eighteen on the “Bones” leg of the hunt, so that you can find the appropriate hint on the Firestorm Spooky Nights Hunt hint page.

whc casual 3_001

For a more laid back look PoshTale has contributed the Jireh Hooded Shirt to the “Wicked” leg of the Spooky Nights Hunt. It has a rough, masculine texture and comes with a 10-color hud! Nicely designed hoodies show up often in store hunts these days, but finding one that includes such a variety of textures is uncommon. It comes in five sizes, plus an additional five in fitmesh. It’s an excellent FREE hunt prize and I heartily recommend that you take a look at it. As I mentioned above, the hunt object is a skull and PoshTale is store number 14 on the “Wicked” leg of the hunt.

The Firestorm Spooky Nights Hunt is huge and fun to do. Don’t miss this opportunity. Stay tuned because later this month I will show off some of the super sexy stuff from the Animations Rising gift. It is an amazingly generous package and you won’t believe what’s in it! Until then, take care everyone! See you on the grid!—–WHC Riler

Autumn Nights

Hello again, my FabFree Dears!

Autumn Nights

I love SL Hunts. You know that… and the more challenging the hunt the better. I’ve found a Hunt that is possibly MORE challenging than my beloved Twisted Hunt. I know! How can that be? But FireStorm’s Spooky Nights Hunt is a fantastic and very challenging Hunt. But, oh boy, is it worth it! With over one hundred and forty prizes… you are sure to find something you love too. This FREE 0L Hunt is divided onto five beautifully done Sims all on one path. You can easily walk from Sim to Sim hunting the skulls that contain the prizes along the way.

First up is this nifty puffy hiking jacket from Ever and Angel. The prize comes with both a men’s and a women’s version, an alpha layer and the standard mesh sizes. The black under shirt is also part of the jacket. It’s just the thing for a wander down an autumn trail or two. I paired the jacket with Sweet tea Couture’s Spooky Nights Scarf. The scarf is also a unisex prize and is resizable. It also comes with a HUD to change it to one of four colors/patterns. I am particularly taken with the multicolored stars.

Autumn Nights

Another great Fall find is this sweater and shirt combo from Dru Wear. The ‘Layer Shirt’ also comes with a men’s version. In fact, there’s a bunch of ‘Guys prize’ to find in this Hunt. Something, I know all of our male readers are sure to appreciate that!

The FireStorm Spooky Nights Hunt lasts until November 30th so you’ve got lots of time to treasure hunt… and you’ll enjoy every minute of it! Oh look, here’s your taxi to the starting point now! -> http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Firestorm%20Support/29/127/33

La Belle

“Beauty is power; a smile is its sword.” — John Ray

It is often the small things and simplest pleasures that make us smile. I think that is why I love this round up of gifts and treasures so much. Alone they are simple… but together they are stunning. And they made me smile. Did I need them to be beautiful? Nah… but I felt beautiful wearing them.

La Belle 1

“Let us live for the beauty of our own reality.” — Charles Lamb.

I think Charles Lamb would have approved of the reality woven by the gifts above. [Muse] is celebrating 1000 members with this resizable Evil Eye Choker gift (though there is nothing evil about this gorgeous gift) which you can pick up for FREE with your NSP Floral Group tag. There is a 75L group join fee, but the monthly gifts and goodies make it worthwhile.

Seeing my own reality through that eye, I knew I needed something special to go with it. And Salt & Pepper didn’t let me down. Their group gifts are usually jewelry, but this month the creator opted to give this sexy black romper called Kiara as the group gift. It is FREE with your group tag and comes in all the standard mesh sizes. Again there is a small join fee (100L) but like NSP Floral, the monthly gifts makes it worth it.

I finished off my adventure into my own reality with a spin on the 30L Julianne Shoes Gacha at Belle Epoque. These shoes fit medium high Slink feet and come in quite a few colors to match just about anything in your wardrobe. I love the strappy, open-toe style!

La Belle 2

“The more often we see things around us – even the beautiful and wonderful things – the more they become invisible to us. That is why we often take for granted the beauty of this world: the flowers, the trees, the birds, the clouds – even those we love. Because we see things so often we see them less and less.” — Joseph B. Wirthlin

I wasn’t done with Belle Epoque this weekend, though, as you can see in the picture above. Sometimes you need to take a little time to stop and smell the flowers. And Belle Epoque‘s 30L Saturday offer is just the thing to remind us of all the beautiful and wonderful things in life that we often take for granted. Above, I am modeling the Imelda Dress in Pink (it comes in all the standard mesh sizes and 3 colors – each for only 30 L!) and there are matching shoes for each color as well! The shoes are also only 30L each for this 30L round. Belle Epoque is leaving this lovely offering out for the weekend, but be sure to stop by before the end of Sunday evening or you will miss out! Hurry!

My necklace is a fantastic 1L Market place find by Cazimi Designs called Diantha Modern Girly Partial Set and was just the thing to set off this flowery dress. It came with earrings too (not shown). For 1L, the quality is hard to beat!

La Belle 3

“Beauty in things exists in the mind which contemplates them.” — David Hume.

Need something more studious? Belle Epoque‘s creator outdid herself this weekend. Well known for medieval fantasy, this FREE group gift with your FREE group join called Eleanor has a vintage appeal that with a few of the right accessories takes on a contemplative look that is just right for vintage roleplay, a date night, or even just casual wear. It not only includes the skirt and jacket in all the standard mesh sizes, but you also get the resizable hat as well.

For a little added flair, I made my way upstairs to the Shoe Gachas again, this time trying my luck with the 30L Emily Shoe machine. A spin won me the pumps in Brown which turned out to be a perfect complement to the outfit. I also paired it with this Sunglass Necklace I found on the Marketplace from BricOle‘s Designs for only 20L.

La Belle 4

“Think of all the beauty still left around you and be happy.” — Anne Frank.

On a final note, Belle Epoque‘s 30L offerings this weekend are incredibly generous and there really is something to make just about any shopper happy. Not only is the Imelda dress and matching shoes available this weekend, but you can also pick up the Berezia Dress in three colors for 30L each. I’m modeling it in the picture above in champagne.

And for those who love capes and hats but are (like me) distressed that you can almost never find hair to fit under them, this Berezia Cape from Belle Epoque in three matching colors with four hair color choices (again 30L each for this weekend only, so hurry) is the perfect solution. Like the dress, the cape is mesh, but comes in 3 standard sizes and fit perfectly with a fabulous ‘flow’ to it as you can see in the picture above — a great inventory “must have” for roleplayers… or anyone really!

LaVian&co Salutes The Armed Services!

whc lavian military 2_001
Next Wednesday is Veteran’s Day, a time to honor everyone who has answered the call to serve their country in the U.S. Armed Forces. Just in time, LaVian&co has a great set of military inspired outfits offered in their men’s group gifts. LaVian&co, renowned for classy women’s clothing with a high-end sense of style, has entered into the men’s clothing market with the new LaVian Male group. Like its sister group, the men’s group offers a huge selection of free group gifts. At the moment, the group join will set you back 99L, but if the group follows its sister group’s business model, you can anticipate the group join will eventually climb, making it a likely bargain at this price.

Several of the group gifts are worthy of mentioning here (after all, I did pick up thirty-eight group gifts). For now, I will concentrate on my favorite outfits; those which salute the United States Military. There are five outfits in this series, each one devoted to a branch of the United States’ Armed Services, including The Coast Guard. Each outfit consists of a brown leather jacket with appropriate patches on the front and an extremely eye-catching full color graphic on the back. On the left in the above picture, you see the front of the US Marine Corps jacket and on the right a side view of the Army jacket. I chose that side view so you can see the patches on the front and a hint of the beautiful graphic on the back of that jacket at the same time. The best way to appreciate these jackets is to click on them twice and see the full-size images in my flickr.

In the second picture, you can see the front of the Navy jacket along with the fantastic T-Shirt texture. These jackets all come in five sizes, including two fitmesh sizes. They can be worn with or without the T-Shirt. Next to the Navy jacket is the back of the Air Force jacket in full color. This set of jackets has some very awesome artwork. Even if you aren’t American, or have no interest in military matters, this series of group gifts is a great pickup. Each of these outfits comes with a very nice pair of Mesh Jeans in five sizes, an excellent addition of classic jeans to any man’s wardrobe. You get great basic men’s jeans in four colors (one color is used twice) even if you don’t care for the jackets! To round out these group gifts, they even include a pair of military boots. This is a fantastic set of gifts!

I strongly suggest you go take a look at LaVian Male. The group join is steeper than I usually care for, but for the number of group gifts you get, plus the likelihood that there will be many more in the future, 99L is likely to be a very good investment for most male avatars. Take care everyone and I’ll see you on the grid!—–WHC Riler
