Playing Dolls

Playing Dolls

There’s nothing I love more than putting outfits together with bits I find all over the grid.  I think it harkens back to my days of playing Barbie wayyyy back when.  When it comes down to it, at it’s essence, my Second Life experience is all about playing dolls!   I love dress-up, and SL is the perfect place to do it.

Happy Anniversary!

Happy Anniversary SaNaRae!  Six years of fun on the grid.  If you head over to the event, and join their free group, you’ll gain access to lots of excellent gifts.  Click on the massive mix tapes at each stall (I love me some old-school tapes!) and you’ll end up with piles of freebies.  Here’s what I’m showing you!

  • FREE top by Pink Lemonade sized for Maitreya and Freya (in three different states of dress!)
  • FREE Earrings by Madame Noir (comes with a necklace too)
  • FREE Pose by Lune

There’s loads more!  Head on over to SaNaRae before it all goes away on October 17th.

In the Dark

In the Dark

The end of the month is swiftly approaching and I’m NOT ready! There are still so many Hunts to hunt and freebies to gather and events to go to…  I better just quit whining and get to it! One of the Hunts I love, despite the hair tearing, eye crossing, sneaky little hiding cubes, is the Twisted Hunt. It was actually the first Hunt I ever did way back in the early days. So yeah, I got tossed into the deep end first thing. BUT… The Twisted Hunt, in my opinion, has the best prizes of all the hunts.  And Gabe and I are showing off just a few of those awesome prizes today. But there’s a time crunch… The Hunt ends on the 30th!

Dark Elves

This round’s theme is Drow elves! I’ve always wondered what it’d be like to be one of the Dark elves and doesn’t Gabe look fantastic as a Drow? I’m lovin’ his yummy ears!  Ahem, anyway, our slick new Drow skins are from Jeanette’s Joint. The prize contains four skins for the ladies: Brows and Browless and “explicit” and modest. The guys get two skins – Brows and Browless. The skins are Baked on Mesh and look fantastic.

Rogues

Our new outfits are also Twisted prizes. These are the “Drow Rogue” outfits from Valkyr. The ladies outfit comes with the top, pants and boots while the guys garb is a tunic and pants. Both of the builds are just gorgeous and I foresee these outfits staying in our closets a long time!

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique

  • Voluptuous

Autumnal Hideaway

Autumnal Hideaway

After a long, hard day at work, it’s definitely time to relax at home.  It’s also high time to bring out the Autumn décor, because it always makes me feel so cozy.  In other words, it’s time to forget the world and hang out in my own little snug and warm nest.

Sass it Up

The group gift for September has made its way to the Sass mainstore!  This lovely loungewear set will have you feeling comfortable faster than you can say “this pattern makes me think of tweed!”.  Isn’t that what you always say in a nice pleasant tartan?  Anyway, to get yours, join the Sass group for 10L and then pay the vendor 1L which will then be returned to you.  All the previous gifts for this year are out for you in case you haven’t picked them all up yet!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya Petite

Ah, time for some tea!

Dancing With Myself

Dancing With Myself

I feel like dancing today.  I don’t really need anyone else around to accomplish my mission, I’m just going to dance by myself for my own pleasure.  Sometimes that’s the best therapy, I think.  Loud music, lots of space to move, and little old moi!

Lybra Season

The other day, LYBRA joined the FabFree Designer 2.0 program and gave us all some amazing goodies which Pru showed you HERE.  I had to have the blouse as well, and while I was there I dug around in all the other awesome gifts that LYBRA has on offer.  This gorgeous dress is free for members of the Mesh Body Friends group, which is free to join.  It comes in a full fatpack of colours, and I love the shiny effect!  Head on over there and pick it up!

Sizes

  • Maitreya
  • Freya

Now close your eyes, I have to keep dancing!

The Time Traveler

Time Traveler

Anyone who tells you Time Travel is a science, and not an artform, is a scoundrel. It is and must be both. You need to be able to finesse your way through multiple realities and get the calculations correct. For now, I’m going to slice through the curtain of time and get myself out of this Jurassic nightmare before one of these giant prehistoric lizards decides I might be a delicious meal. Safe travels my fellow voyagers.

The Engine Room 

Purely by happenstance I visited the Engine Room event. Lo and behold, it’s an Anniversary round! You guessed it, that means free gifts. Lots and lots of amazing free gifts. The theme is steampunk and the gifts are free with the Second Life Syndicate group tag. The group is free to join. I got all of them, and would have loved to show all of them to you, but that would just be tedious for everyone. Instead, I put together my Time Traveler look using the Engine Room gifts from Eudora3D, Apricot Paws, Wicca’s Originals, Deadly Nightshade, and Lux Aeterna.

Second Life Syndicate group: secondlife:///app/group/d35c55f4-6a4f-eb2d-1dae-af9665f6f4cd/about

Eudora3D

I think this hat from Eudora3D is possibly one of the coolest hats I’ve ever owned, and it’s absolutely free. The Witch Hunter hat is incredibly detailed. It comes with a hud that lets you change the metal parts gold or silver, and adjust the position and size of the hat. You’ll find this freebie waiting for you at the Engine Room event. Don’t forget the Second Life Syndicate tag.

Apricot Paws

My very Victorian-like blouse by Apricot Paws is also free at the Engine Room. It fits beautifully and I love the subtle pinstripes. This shirt comes in a tucked and a not tucked version for multiple wear options. This gift also has a hud that lets you adjust the color of the bow, the buttons, and metal bits.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Maitreya V-Tech, MeshBody Legacy, MeshBody Legacy Perky

Wicca’s Originals

The Havoc Mask is the free Engine Room Anniversary gift by Wicca’s Originals. This super cool accessory is unisex in that it comes in a male sizes as well as a female size. The details are awesome, and it fit me perfectly, however there are resize scripts in the masks.

Deadly Nightshade

I think this clockwork mechanism halo piece by Deadly Nightshade is so cool. Not only does it look cool with all the great details, it also has moving parts. The pieces attach separately so that they move independent of each other. That also means they can be worn all together or separately. This free Engine Room gift was the initial inspiration for creating a Time Traveling character.

Lux Aeterna

The golden scalpel and scissors by Lux Aeterna together are the first Engine Room gift I unpacked and knew I had to do something with them. They are gorgeous aesthetically, and have a macabre element that I really like. They also have these really awesome bento hold poses, that are just icing on the cake. You’ll find them for free at the Engine Room. Again, don’t forget to join the free Second Life Syndicate group and wear the group tag to get the gifts.

Gothic Romance

Gothic Romance

It’s always the right season for a dark, ruffled, and romantic ballgown, but I think Autumn is truly the time of year when a gothic romance look shines.  I often daydream about the ball in the slightly creepy mansion, with leaves swirling as you walk up to the massive front doors, the masked people inside…. oh don’t get me started.  You’ll be ready for your own gothic romance in this look!

Hunt it Out!

Opia and Poison Rouge have a lovely little hunt going on in their store with so many pretty and classic items.  I instantly fell in love with the “Black Swan Brocade” gown.  To grab it, just hunt for the pink umbrellas in the store, and pay 15L to get the contents (you’ll be able to see what lies inside if you click on the umbrella).  This gown also comes with a spiked headband in the box (not pictured).  I’ve included a hunt key below so you can see what else is available!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Venus

 

The Autumn Hunt is running until September 29th, so get over there!

Luck is on my Side

Luck is on my Side

Here’s the thing about Lucky Letter boards.  I love them to death, but they also drive me completely batty.  You know those ones that take 20 years to switch between letters?  Or the ones that suddenly decide that the first letter of your name no longer exists?  Or perhaps the ones that are very partial to numbers instead of letters…. If I ever come across one that has the chemical symbol for Boron instead of a normal first letter of a name, then I really won’t be surprised.  Anyway, I love a good lucky board.  Really, I do.  I just like to have a little complain about their evil nature now and then!

Loads of Luck

Right, now that I’ve complained your ears off, let me tell you all about the awesome lucky boards at LSR.  There is a massssiiiiiiive wall of them, and four new ones have just been added this week.  Join their group for 99L, and you’ll have a wardrobe people will be jealous of.  This pretty dress I’ve got on is one of the newest lucky boards, and it was kind of nice that I didn’t have to wait forever for my letter to come up.  There are also a pile of group gifts at LSR to grab while you’re there!  I’ve included the vendor shots of the four newest lucky boards below for your viewing pleasure.

Big Love

Big Love

Love is an adventure. It can make you feel 50 feet tall, and capable of anything. Perhaps that’s why I felt a bit bold and adventuresome while wearing this dress by DM. It’s the perfect casual dress, comfortable, not too short, but not too long, and just the right mix of edgy and cute.

Lucky for us this dress also happens to be a free group gift at DM. The gift includes a color change hud with a few solid color options for the main part of the dress. The DM group is free to join.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara & Petite

Also, my starry violet eyes are from a mid-week “Golden Days Weekly Sales” sale offer at Madame Noir. Blue told me about the sale, and I of course had to check it out. Madame Noir has two sets of beautifully detailed eyes on sale for 55 lindens from now until the 25th. You will need to join the “Golden Days Weekly Sales” group to use the vendor.
