Innocent Until Proven Evil

Innocent until Proven Evil

When hinges creak in doorless chambers, and strange and frightening sounds echo through the halls. Whenever candlelights flicker where the air is deathly still — that is the time when ghosts are present, practicing their terror with ghoulish delight!

-Haunted Mansion Ride, Disney parks

Hey gang!

I’m back with some ghoulish delights of my own, found at the new style Arcade Event.  The event has been updated from the old style gachas into a new system of its own, which has you grabbing a HUD as you enter, and which you wear while you shop.  When you find a machine you want to play, you connect it to the machine. (don’t spend fifteen minutes trying to find it on the machines like I did at first, each machine is on a base and at the front of each base is two buttons, one to connect your HUD.)

Once you are connected, it will show you which item has been chosen for you to play for.  If you want that item, you pay the machine (if you try to pay it without the HUD, it will refuse your money and send it back to you.), if not then disconnect and head to another machine.  If you do play, you will get that item and the HUD will show you a new, random choice.

If you want to try again, you have to wait until the next day, as it will reset at midnight, and you can get new random numbers.  If you try again that same day, you will get the same numbers.  It’s kind of fun, really (and a bit addicting!).

So I lucked out on this play, the Mikunch machine where I got this cute dress (you choose the size you want to play for on certain machines), I chose Maitreya cause that’s what body I use.   It comes with a HUD giving you a handful of color choices (black, white, red, pink).  It’s only 75L a play.

This dress gave me sort of a “Bad Seed” sort of vibe, perfect for Halloween.  She is just a sweet girl, right?  Right?!  Only time will tell!

Happy Haunting!

Weekend Mode Activated

Ok, I’ve officially given up for the week!  All the stress of nine to five is behind me, and I’ve fooled the masses into thinking I’m drinking a grown up beverage, but I just got it for the candy.  Mwahaha!  I’m so devious.  Let’s get a weekend-ready dress, shall we?

Wait, What?

Ok, folks…. The Arcade is back, and you can get all the goodness of playing a Gacha, without any of the gambling!  Since gachas were banned back in August, people have been hemming and hawing over how to get the thrill of the gacha (I am a fan of a sweet outfit for a low price), but still let you make informed decisions on what you’re about to purchase.  The Arcade has come up with a new HUD system that tells you which items are up next in the queue, so you can either buy what’s next, see what the next few items down the line are, or just walk on and come back later when you can try and get the items you’d really like.  Full disclosure, I had an amazing time playing – and I didn’t spend as much as I used to back when Gacha was a game of chance.  Anywhos, I played the Ricielli gacha, and no matter what you pull you’re sure to end up with a really REALLY pretty dress like the one I got for just 75L.  It’s a win-win!

Sizes

  • Maitreya
  • Legacy
  • Kupra

You can check out all the information about how to play the new system HERE, and also take a look at the catalogue while you’re there to see what you want to grab.

What do you think of this new system?  Let me know in the comments!

Searching…

ari pari_003

Hey gang,

Some nights you might find me wandering in a starlit park, searching for my true love.  Through the fog, through the mist… with the help of the fairy lights in the trees I search…. to no avail.

but hey…. I look hella good while I search!!!  So when I find him…. wink wink!  *giggle*

I’m running a bit late with this post and my next, so let’s just cut to the chase shall we (did you know that is a Hollywood phrase?)?

My stunning little number of a dress is a goodie from Ari-Pari in the Too Glam to Give a Damn Hunt, which goes until the 31st, so you still have a few days!  There are lots of cute goodies in this hunt, so well worth your hunting time!  If this color isn’t your thing, this dress comes with a HUD that gives you all sorts of gorgeous colors to make your sparkly dress!  I have a bit of a penchant for coppers and rose golds so… yeah.

This is a 1L hunt with the option of a 25L exclusive for each designer.  This dress is a 25L exclusive in this hunt, so you wanna grab it if you love it as much as I do!  This dress comes in:

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique

Other goodies I included in this outfit…

My necklace is from one of my favorite places Lunaria (the trees with the lights are a free group gift from them and their group is free to join!)It’s the Eleanor Necklace Gacha and it’s only 25L until the end of this month when we sadly say goodbye to all gachas and enter a barren gacha-less grid.  😦

Fifty Linden Fridays Birthday Fun Continues!

My earrings are a free gift (Fifty Lindens Friday group join required, but it’s free!) at the FLF Birthday bash from Andore, they are called Mrs. Rabbit and they are adorbs!

Aside from the freebies at FLF Birthday bash are alllllllllll the 50L goodies you can carry (and maybe some you need one of those little red wagons you pull behind you.  I always wanted one as a kid, but never got one.  sighhhh), so I am showcasing three of my 50L finds here (I grabbed a few things):

Skin by Glam Affair Enni Layer (50L)

Wasabi Smoothie Hair (50L), which you can also see on Aline in her recent post!  Who wore it better?  lol!

Lastly, the cute gazebo I am posing in, with lights?  This is the FairyTale Gazebo by Celeste and that’s 50L as well!  It is adorable and if you love to decorate with a bit of whimsy, this is an absolute must-have!

The celebration continues until September 3rd and I think I need to make a trip back!

Til next time!

Desert Rose

Desert Rose

This desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

Desert Rose by Sting

Hey gang!

I wanted to share more of the Una gacha fatpack group gifts (gosh that’s a mouthful huh!) with you!  Just some really lovely stuff and right up my alley so I couldn’t resist!  So to do these photos I headed out to the desert, which was really lovely by the way albeit hot.  But the sultry atmosphere, Arabic music and decor are enough to put you in that perfect mood, well for me anyway, I have an obsession with Moroccan-ish decor and clothing.  I mean honestly, half of what I created for my store was these sort of exotic outfits and fabrics, they are just so beautiful.

Since I have spent so many years creating these, I am especially fond of other creators who do the same (with the exception of one, who shall remain nameless.), and they inspire me to create more, if I could only find the time!  But I digress!  I know you are waiting to hear about these lovely outfits and so now, without further ado….

The above outfit comes from the Vidhi fatpack, absolutely stunning set.  You get these as a free group gift and that group is free to join!  I haven’t even finished rummaging through all the fatpacks I brought home from them, they are sitting on my wardrobe floor.  Both of these sets are made to fit Maitreya only.  Below is the second set I am sharing with you and that is called the Iddun gacha fatpack.

Run over to Una and scoop up this collection of fatpacks, I guarantee that you will fall in love with them as I have!

It’s Been a Fabulous Friday!

FLF 8/6/21 Cynful Play Time Romper

Happy Friday peeps!! Friday means big sales & lots of goodies. It’s also the start of the weekend and time to partay! I found some great stuff for looking fab and sexy.

Fifty Lindens!

Cynful‘s offer for FLF is the Play Time Romper. It comes with a HUD with 4 ombre shades. It’s sexy & certainly playful. You’ll feel like a million dollars in this.

Sizes

  • Maitreya regular & petite
  • Legacy
  • Belleza
  • Kupra

My darling shoes are the Totem Wedges for the FLF sale @ Astralia. A color change HUD is included. It lets you change all the different components of the shoes like pompoms, bands, laces, etc. You’ll get a lot of use out of these.

Of course I needed hair!! I always need more hair. Maybe I like SL hair better because I can’t do a thing with my RL hair. I scoured the sales galleries and gacha sales to find something. I noticed that Rama Salon had $25L gacha sales. My first pull got me this long & sexy blonde style, Grace. I love it when things come together!

Get out & shop ladies!!

Goodbye to Gacha!

Time to say goodbye to one of our fave (or hated) pastimes in SL – the Gacha!  Starting September 1st, all sales made via Gacha Machine will be banned in Second Life, so August 2021 is the time to get your fill before this mode of selling is gone forever.  In our listing, you’ll find all the sales we can find on the grid, and will be updated as more information emerges.

Good Luck, and may the Gachas be ever in your favour!

Say Yes!

Capsule by Dad - Say Yes! Long Dress $75L Gacha @ Epiphany

Now if only someone would ask that question I could say YES to. Dang, I need a groom! I got this gorgeous wedding dress and no one to marry. No worries gang, this is just a story!

I Had an Epiphany at The Epiphany!

I’m really not a gacha fanatic, I only play them now & then. I decided to check out The Epiphany after I spied this dress in the gallery for this round ending on August 12th. It’s by a new to me designer, Capsule by DaD. At $75 per pull it’s a real bargain and I got the blush colored Say Yes! Long Dress on the first one!! SQUEE! (its my new favorite word, lol).

The dress is sized for Maitreya & Legacy with Perky versions for both.

A few years back on my first blogging adventure I thought about doing a post with all the free wedding attire I could find. Well, life happened and that never got done. Soooo, when I got this dress the light bulb in my head briefly shone brighter & I knew I had to show this.

Enjoy Fabbies!

XOXO,

Cre

I Gacha Good

I Gacha Good
Gachas.  You love them or you hate them.  Or you have a love hate relationship with them, that leans rather often towards the love, but then veers off in the hate direction rather abruptly so that you stomp off in frustration in your 6 inch heels while muttering to yourself about evil machines.  It’s not like I’m speaking from experience, I swear!

But My Fave!

I’ve said it once, I’ll say it again – Amitomo is a gacha that I never regret playing, and I rarely miss playing one of their new releases.  They consistently put out cute, well-constructed and wildly affordable gachas that never leave me with that gacha player’s remorse.  Their latest set is out at Kustom9 and is just 69L per pull.  You’ll totally walk away with something you can wear, as usual with their offerings.  I played 4 times and managed to get this shirt, the skirt (sized for Maitreya bodies) the cute bubble gum and even the little butterfly belt.  Not bad!  Also, often if I don’t win one of the items I really need in my life, I’ll nip into Marketplace and search for the gacha, and once you sift through the super overpriced ones, you can find some good deals.  It pays to look on MP!

This round of Kustom9 is running until August 10th!

Good Luck!

Hey gang!

I’ve got a Caroline style post for you today, with a whole list of goodies!  😀

Let’s not beat around the bush shall we?  (where exactly does that expression come from?  Beating around a bush to… chase something out?  idk!  lol)

Get this look for 6L!  Yes You Heard Right!

Extra Goodies in the Photo

The super sweet neon popsicles behind me are from our very own Fab Free Designer, NinaX.  The red and yellow color is free in the Summer Nights Hunt (7.24 to 8.14), but the other colors are also a steal at only 15L each!  I grabbed them all, just cause I couldn’t decide!  Sooo cute!

My little yummy hand held popsicle and my little panda friend (who is sooo much enjoying his slushie!) are both from The Epiphany.  The popsicle is from Broken Arrows for a 50L pull and the Panda is from Stoic for 75L a pull.  Such a fun shoot!  I’ve got a close up below so you can get a better look at things.

coming soon

That should keep y’all busy for about an hour or so.  😉  Have fun!!
