Graveside Beauty

Graveside

I let my macabre show today and got a little Gothic. I visited the Oubliette Graveyard and lay down among the (black) rose petals between the gravestones (petals not included! They are part of my pose). However it was perfect for showing off this great Women Only Hunt gift from Oubliette.

Not just another swimsuit

This free “swimsuit” from Oubliette is not just another swimsuit… it’s a Gothic girls dream come true. It comes in black with a skeletal design on the body and could double as a body suit. Included is a free pair of Lennon round sunglasses and a black floppy straw hat (not shown) for keeping out that dreaded sun.

Sizes included:

  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Feya, Isis, & Venus

Dark Magick

Dark Magic

I’m stirring up a little magic in my roleplay today, courtesy of SLB 14! I visited the event and was thrilled to see that roleplayers were not left out of the free treats and gifts to be picked up.

Generosity…

I was amazed at the generosity of [Tia], the creator of the Grimoire Table you see in my photo above. It is the free gift you can buy for 0L if you visit the [Tia] booth at SLB 14. The table is all decked out with tons of detail, including lit candles and a rotating magical aura on the book on top. For all this detail it weighs in at a mere 5 prim. This is a must add to your inventory for roleplay furniture.

And my dress!

My dress is a free gift also. If you go to The White Armory, and head inside the main building, you will see that it also houses BlueMoon Enterprises, where you can pick up their latest free gift (the group is free to join), this Saoise Dress in Aqua. It comes in all the standard mesh sizes and includes a quality alpha so that you’ll be able to fit it to standard or mesh bodies either one. It’s perfect for some magical roleplay!

Bath Time!

Bathtime

It’s bathtime! And all I have to do is slip out of my new dress and take some time to relax. But first I have to tell you where I got my new attire (it was completely free) and as well as where my bath set came from! You’ll have to hurry on the bath set, as it is a Hello Tuesday event special!

The Dress

Pick up my pretty in pink Emma dress as a free group gift from ViSion. The group is free to join, making this dress free as well. It has a hud to change the color of the zipper on the back to three different metal choices, as well as you can change the color of the trim on the dress to many different colors as well for lots of versatility. The dress comes in several mesh body sizes including:

  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Hello Tuesday!

I stopped by the Hello Tuesday event to look around and came across the stall for Black Jack. Inside they had a variety of gachas and I fell in love with the quaint little bathroom set.

I picked up the entire set (though not quite every piece is shown in my picture… I didn’t manage to get the sink, wall mirror, or toilet into the shot). At only 50L per spin, this set is a nice addition to your home, and the bathtub includes a nice bathing animation! It is extremely low prim, with each piece coming in at only 1 to 3 prims each! You might just want the entire set for your home.

Escaping Mos Eisley

Kessel Run

Clearing the path…

They are paying me… EXTREMELY WELL to get them off this rock. I didn’t realize the Empire was looking for them. If I can just make it to the Falcon and take off, they will never catch me. After all,  I did make the Kessel Run in 12 parsecs.

Stuck-up, half-witted, scruffy-looking nerf herder

“Who’s scruffy-looking?” My look today is a FREE gift by Destiny’s Designs for the Little Mos Eisley Role-Play sim. The Kessel Run Male Outfit is FREE to one and all who visit the sim. The outfit contains many pieces, including a jacket w/ shirt, pants, scarf, boots, blaster holster and a blaster to hold that I’m showing. That’s quite a bit, but that’s not all. Also included but not shown is a full system avatar with a shape, skin, hair and eyes. That sure is a nice gift, but what about the ladies? Don’t get your hair buns in a bunch, there is a FREE matching avatar and outfit for the women as well. Take time to look around the sim, you might run into a familiar face or two.

Bird of Paradise

Bird of Paradise

In real life, I don’t often have an occasion for dressing up in a formal gown. In second life, there are plenty of opportunities for donning a formal… ballrooms, date nights, roleplay, or just visiting a pretty and photogenic castle on the beach!

Be sure to remember…

… that The White Amory generously gives a free group gift every single Sunday. The group is free to join.

I picked up this Bird of Paradise gown yesterday and knew I had to show it off. While it could easily be fit for a princess or noble lady in a roleplay setting, you could also wear it to your favorite ballroom dance occasion as well. This dress comes in a variety of mesh sizes (more on that in a moment) and as a bonus, you’ll also get fully mesh white opera gloves to fit mesh bodies (just leave off your mesh hands and voila!).

Sizes included:

  • Standard mesh sizes XXS – L
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Belleza – Isis

This beautiful gown will be out until next Sunday, when a new free gift will be set out for you to enjoy!

Note: If you’re having trouble finding the gift… go inside the building, look for the Blue Moon building (inside the main building), look right for the White Armory Building. Go inside the White Armory Building. You’ll find the group gift there 🙂

Ice Cream Break

IceCream Break

Surely there’s always time to stop for ice cream when you’re at the beach! If you stop by Baja Shore, there is an ice cream stand that you can click for a variety of holdable free ice cream props in different colors and different varieties of “scoops.” I opted for the yellow parfait dish with three scoops of my favorite flavors!

Bathing beauty

Paisley Daisy has out a lovely new June group gift to pick up that will have you headed for the beach to have your ice cream and eat it too. This two piece swim suit has a vintage feel with its crochet-like texture and it comes in a luscious red.

Sizes included:

  • Standard mesh XXS – L
  • TMP
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Stop for a tattoo

It’s been a while since I sported any tattoos. I don’t usually don ink. But I stopped by Inhale tattoo shop and picked up one of their past group gifts (there are several out) to add to my look. The group is free to join, making all their gifts free too. They are all unisex as well, and come in multiple appliers for different mesh bodies. This one is called “Inspire” and as well as the pretty arm design the word “inspire” appears on your avatar’s hand as well as a little anchor on the top of your finger. (I didn’t get a close up but you can zoom in to see in Flickr.)

Appliers included:

  • System
  • Signature
  • Belleza
  • Physique
  • Slink
  • Omega
  • Maitreya

Got Your Goat

Huck Thought He Was a Dog

When I was a child I had a goat (I lived on a farm) that thought it was my dog. It followed me everywhere. I wanted a dog pretty badly then and wasn’t yet allowed to have one. So that goat was my favorite animal on the farm. At least until he grew horns and began to butt me! So I couldn’t help be enchanted by these little goats I ran across on this quaint little sim.

Speaking of quaint…

When was the last time you visited Snowpaws? They have a roomful of group gifts and free no group required Lucky Letter Boards and Mini Mania Boards. I won my outfit off one of the free Mini Mania Boards after slapping them all! And I came away with several new free outfits from the free Lucky Letter Boards as well. There are so many goodies to be had there! My outfit is fully mesh and comes in all the standard mesh sizes.

Paired off.

I paired my new outfit with a pretty blue drop necklace from BricOle’s off the marketplace for only 30L. If you like this piece you might like some of their other items. Be sure to check out their online store for low price/high quality jewelry. I did discover that when I put the necklace on, I had to click the pendant and size it up (size up this prim only) to make it meet the black cord. But that was an easy fix to get such a pretty necklace at a such a deal.

Looking Back…

It seems I have been thinking a lot about the past lately. Some good times, some bad, some too crazy to believe it really happened. And yes, I can remember when gas pumps were painted that ugly red rust color and when gas was 44 cents a gallon. And I do remember the summer of sixty- nine, just barely. Even though I’m looking back, I still plan on moving forward and making new memories, hopefully none as bizarre as a few I’ve had lately…

But if I’d only known…

Today I have a few gifts  that will cost you nothing to pick up. By joining the FREE group at Fe Style, you can get thKing 2e King69 White T-Shirt for FREE. The shirt comes in S-L and a also fitted size. This month’s FREE group gift at Prey is the Men’s Denim Shorts. These shorts come in classic sizes XS-XL.  The Prey group is also FREE to join. I’m also wearing the Black Mesh Sports Cap from Adriatic Line that I previously mentioned [HERE] and my go to TopGun Retro Glasses, a group gift at A&D Clothing. Today I am also wearing a a FREE gift, no group needed, from Chop ZueyThe 4 Star Generals Mens Bracelet in Platinum can be picked up in the middle of the store. (Don’t be confused with the group gift version that also contains a gold bracelet. ) The bracelet comes in two versions, the all platinum and the gold star platinum style. You can click on the photo to get a better look.

 

Until my next sporadic post…

Meet Me at the Disco!

Meet Me at the Disco

Friday Night Fever has hit early for me and I am trying to get my dancing in quick because I have a busy day ahead. Thankfully I have the perfect disco clothes for a quick dance to start my weekend off right!

The arrow points this way —>

To BYRNE! Stop by BYRNE and slap that subscriber board and pick up the free June subscriber gift that is this Arrow Long Shirt. Depending on your windlight setting, it will look black and white, or like in my picture it will have a colorful sheen to it! The texture is intriguing and unique, and I really love it.

Sizes included: Hourglass and Maitreya (and a pair of bonus earrings which I opted not to wear in the picture).

It’s 50L Friday!

Quick! Stop by Wasabi Pills while you can! This gorgeous hairstyle called Nahia in an exclusive color pack is only 50L for today. Since I was disco dancing I opted to go a different shade than my usual and picked out a red and pink style that I thought complimented my outfit. This fun hair is mesh and the package includes a standard size hair, as well as a size to fit “chesty” avatars.
