The Bi Annual Wash Cart Sale – Dark Water Designs

Dark Water Designs is one of those designers that never fails to impress me.

The Bi Annual Wash Cart Sale - Dark Water Designs

And the Cart this designer has set up for us at the Wash’s sale is no exception. I had no trouble picking out what I wanted to show this time. Not because everything wasn’t awesome but because when I saw the Lolita Jumper I was in love! It’s a simple thing but the details are amazing. I love the color, the pattern … just everything. You get the five standard Mesh sizes and the alpha.

Dark Water Designs- CART

Dark Water Designs has some really cool items set out for our guys, too. I’m really taken with the graffiti jeans.

You have until September 16th to get your shopping on here at the Wash!

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.

Enchanted Oceane [1]

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.

The Wash Cart Sale – The Dark Fae

It’s that time again! The Bi-Annual Wash Cart Sale! Yayyy. OK, first, I need to confess, I started looking around before the sale officially started, as so many of the vendors already had their wares out. Whew! Glad I got that out of my system. Now, you all know me and shoes..so it’s no surprise that I gravitated towards The Dark Fae cart, as it’s all shoes! What you may not realize about me, 75% of the time, I will gravitate towards flats, even in RL. So I was really happy to see that the shoe offerings were  the super cute, beaded Boardwalk sandals.

DarkFaeWC1

I went with the Skittles pair, as I really liked that the beads were different colours. Each pair does come with a HUD with 4 leather colour options (although I somehow missed getting a shot of my pair in the black! Doh!). As well, these are unrigged mesh, made to fit SLink flat feet, or Maitreya flat feet. For all you male SLink feet wearers, don’t fret, as there is a pair of really nice men’s sandals available too. All this goodness at only L$10 a piece! Love it! Here is the direct TP to the Dark Fae cart (although they are now boards, which make for a way better shopping experience), and I have included a shot of the cart so you can pre-decide which colour you want before having to brave the mad rush of AV’s that are happily shopping at the sale :)

That’s all for now, until next time, TTFN!

A little bit of Hunting in Africa, my camera is the perfect shot!

 

Well well…It’s another beautiful Thursday! Hope you all have had a good week since I was last here. I’ve been having to endure renovations at my workplace, and it’s been a little rough. I am so glad I have SL to escape to once I get home. This week, with the help of the African Summer Hunt, I’ve escaped to a whole other continent, Africa! For LM’s to all participating stores, hunt previews, and hints, here’s the link to the hunt website. All hunt prizes are free. So, let me show you a few fun things I picked up while working on this fairly easy hunt.

africa1

My lovely maxi skirt, ruffled top and head wrap are all part of the hunt gift you will find over at Cheeky Parrot Boutique. I just love the store name. For all you male FabFree readers, there is also a men’s gift included. All three pieces of the Nyoka Ladies set are mesh, and excluding the head wrap, which comes in 3 sizes, they come in all the standard sizes. I’ve included a shot with a closer look at my top and the head wrap. The colours and patterns on these pieces really do scream African Summer. I love it!

africa2

The other hunt item I wanted to show off is from BoWillow. My super-cute sunglasses are 1 of 3 pairs you will get when you find the hunt item in store. I happen to be wearing the giraffe pattern, but you also get a zebra pair, and a leopard pair. How much fun is that little bow! While BoWillow mainly focuses on children’s clothing, these sunglasses are mod, and also have a sizing script, so no matter your avie size, you can wear them. BTW, special mention, if you have space to keep it out, the box these glasses come in,  is too adorable. You’ll know what I mean when you unpack your items :)

africa4

The last addition to my African look, is not actually from the hunt. Although I did kind-of hunt for it, on one of my many Marketplace hunts. What did I find, my pretty henna body tattoo. This is a Marketplace L$1 promo offered from AV Ink Tattoo’s, here’s the link. You get a torso tattoo, that I am wearing, as well as a set of hand tattoo’s, which I am not wearing. Both tat’s are system layers, and they really are just delicately simple and pretty. I really wanted something that would match the feeling of my outfit, without going for the typical tribal tat’s, and I thought this fit the bill. Do not be surprised if you see this tattoo showing up in my other posts.

OK, while I have stayed pretty quite while posing, I think the lions finally noticed me. So I better be heading out. I hope you enjoyed my trip to Africa with me. Who knows where I’ll end up next. Until next time, my lovelies, TTFN!!

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

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!

FREE Music + FREE Gifts = FREE FUN

Liberta Music Festival

If you need a super fun way to finish out the weekend, I’ve got just the thing! Liberta. What is that? It’s an awesome free music festival, think free music, shopping, and yes, free gifts. This incredible event has been going strong since Friday and will continue on until they close the sim down on Sunday evening. Many would argue that one of the best freebies in all of Second Life is the music. So grab some friends, take your significant other and enjoy the gorgeously landscaped environment and rockin’ live music while you browse through the shops. Don’t forget to pick up the freebies! The above photo shows Pru hanging out at one of the many lounge areas throughout the Liberta festival where you can chill and listen to the music after you’ve tired out from dancing and shopping.

Now, time to show the goods!

Liberta Gifts

There are several FREE gifts to be had at the Liberta event. First, you can pick up a FREE event shirt at the Liberta landing point. The black mesh tee comes in a male and female version, both in standard mesh sizes. I love that they have FREE event t-shirt. I always am so disappointed in real life when I go to an event and the t-shirts cost more than the event. In addition you can pick up a FREE souvenir plushie at the Liberta event booth. The hold-able plushies come in a girl and boy version of the trademark bull mascot. Also, several of the merchants set out event gifts. I picked up these sexy shredded leggings from Indecent Exposure. The FREE leggings come in a system tattoo layer and include an omega applier. Now if you’ve followed my blog posts for a while you know I love horns. These pretty gold and teal horns are a FREE event exclusive from Tanoshi.
