Some Second Life Snow

Dream_001

“When you have a dream, you’ve got to grab it and never let it go.” Carol Burnett

I’ve been dreaming a lot about a white Christmas. Sure I can find plenty of snow in Second Life, but all I’ve had here where I live is the cold, cold, cold. No snow yet. I admit, I miss the flurries and white just a bit. Meanwhile, I’ll settle for the pretty white, of Second Life snow, until real life delivers!

Some Second Life Snow…

PixelArt showed off some snow with a special free POE Hunt gift that is a 4 prim snow photo studio. The studio includes 10 different winter backdrops including the one I am showing off in the picture, two actual prim trees that you can just glimpse in my picture, and a set of very nice poses that you change by clicking on a snowflake at the top of the studio. It’s a beautiful free snowy gift!

Some Glam…

My glamourous dress is the free POE Hunt gift from Paisley Daisy and is perfect for winter glam parties, nights on the town, ballgowns and formal occasions, and those ever popular Christmas parties. This full length gown with the generous side split is luscious with its generous array of shimmering colors and comes in may sizes.

Available Dress Sizes:

  • Fitmesh XS – L
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Belleza

Proud as a Peacock

Proud as a Peacock

You know that problem we’ve all got in SL – not wanting to wear the same thing twice?  Well, I think I’ve found a dress that may make me want to break that rule.  ‘Tis the season for sparkly dresses, and this super pretty one is completely FREE!  Yummy!

You too can get this pretty number by just spending a few minutes searching for it on the rOrO cart at The Guest List.  Yep, no random walking about, no scratching your head for ages, just find the little strawberry on the cart, and it’s all yours.  Easy peasy lemon squeezy!

The Cotton Candy Beaded Gown made me think of peacocks – I do love the deep turquoises and purples of the dress, and the slit on the side made for a nice exotic touch.  A real showstopper for all the parties and events this season.  A golden beaded shawl is also included to keep warm on those chilly nights (not pictured).

Sizes

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

Now, did someone promise me champagne?

Queen of Autumn

Queen of Autum_001

I have a special free roleplay gown for you. Though if you skip the cloak and high neck collar on this gown, the red gown and mesh red gloves, make this gown fitting for any formal occasion as well.

Stop by…

Just make a stop by BlueMoon Enterprise which is housed inside of Silvan Moon Design and The White Armory. You’ll need to go inside the main-store of The White Armory, then find the BlueMoon Enterprise building inside. Once inside BlueMoon, make your way to their gift station. This gift is free with your group tag and the group is free to join as well! You’ll get the gown in several sizes, the fitted mesh gloves (they fit my Maitreya body perfectly), the high neck collar with attached necklace, and the shoulder pieces.

Dress sizes available:

  • Classic sizes XXS – M (the Medium fit my Maitreya body well)
  • Slink fitted

I’m not grumbling about this gown!

Devil with the Red Dress On_001

Oh, oh, oh, I’m going to have a ball tonight! And I’m dressed for ballroom style! Do you need a formal gown and only have a single linden to your name? I have just the stop for you!

Grumbling… not!

I’m not grumbling about this hunt gift from Grumble! It’s a beautiful formal ballgown in red that is also just simple enough to pass as a “Sunday Dress” for less formal occasions. You can pick it up at the Grumble main-store as part of the Jerky Turky Hunt for 1L. Your clue is: “I think i saw a feather in the cash register.” Look for the orange feather and when you find it, pay the 1L and the dress is yours!

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

In a Naughty Mood…

Lets Play_001

I’m in a naughty mood today… and I decided I wanted to play… darts. I also did a naughty hunt. But came up with some most excellent free gifts that many of you may want in on even if you’re a perfect angel 😉

Being Naughty.

Now though Oct. 30th, you can get in on the Femdom hunt. You’ll be hunting down a little red shoe and the gifts are free if you are willing to brave what are mostly adult areas (there are a few stores that are not adult, but pre-warning, most of the hunting areas are adult). I picked up several very nice gifts that I wanted to share with you.

The Dress.

If you’re admiring my beautiful free purple corset gown, it is a free Femdom Hunt gift courtesy of Roped Passions. Hunt down the red shoe at the main-store and ladies it is yours to dance, wine and dine, or… kick up your heels in. Whatever suits your fancy. There’s also a men’s gift in the box that was too naughty to show. So if you want to bring your fella in for a naughty tee shirt (it’s really not PG-13) 😛 … feel free!

Dress Sizes Available:

  • Classic mesh XS – XL
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

The Necklace.

Night Wish Toys isn’t just for toys… I picked up my free pretty little bauble necklace as part of the Femdom hunt there by hunting down the red shoe at their main-store. Included in the box is a necklace for both men and women. I’m showing of the ladies gift in the picture above. I didn’t get a close up, but if you click into flicker you can zoom in to get a glance at this leaf shaped silver pretty.

Let’s Play?

I also picked up two excellent pieces of furniture to add to my home. One is from the Men Only Hunt, but I really love playing darts… and hey! A woman can play darts too! Just stop by Bad Unicorn and hunt down that free mustache and you get the 3 prim dart board as well as a throwing dart you can hang in your home… or den… or where-ever!

Have a seat!

I had to also show off my new parlor seat. This free Lyla chair by Roawenwood as part of the Femdom Hunt is so good that it actually took a spot in my own linden home on a permanent basis.

It includes single animations as well as Femdom animations and is only 5 prim. It includes enough animations that it rivaled any other Femdom chairs I have come across for quality… and it is free! It is worth hunting down that little red shoe to have this one in your home if you are into the lifestyle. Sorry, I can’t show you any of the animations! But it’s worth checking out if this is your thing! To top it off, it’s just plain pretty! Enjoy!

The White Cliffs

The White Cliffs_001

I’ve been in an “Edgar-Allan-Poe”-type-melancholy-mood lately. It led me to visit an art sim called “The White Cliffs of Dover.” It’s a fairly simple sim. It really is just a set of barren cliffs with a couple of planes, a tea shop and grasslands. Somehow, though, it is incredibly beautiful in its simplicity. I find that when I am melancholy, I crave simplicity. It helps me keep life in perspective.

Since I was in a melancholy mood, I decided to try out the Quoth the Raven Hunt and see what I came up with (hurry, the hunt ends September 30th). I visited Lunaria and hunted down the creator’s prize which is an incredibly beautiful gown… which I would argue is Edgar Allan Poe inspired. Or at least certainly Raven inspired.

The gown

The gown Branwen, by Lunaira, is a seemingly simple formal navy blue gown will a full skirt, until you take a closer look. It has an add-on feather belt and the skirt itself is covered in both texture and add-on prim feathers for a stunning and beautiful look. The overall mesh flow of the dress is superb. Hunt down the raven icon and pay just 1L for this gem of a dress to add to your wardrobe.

Sizes available:

  • Fitmesh XS – L
  • TMP
  • Slink
  • Maitreya
  • Belleza

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!

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 🙂

Fit for a Queen

Queenly_001

Fit for a Queen.

It’s been a while since I stopped by Sweet Lies, so when I made my way over there the other day to see if there was anything new at the main-store, I was pleasantly surprised to discover that the creator had set out a free group gift. The group is free to join, so the Diona outfit won’t cost you a thing. Considering this gift is fit for a Queen that is quite a deal.

Included in the gift:

  • The dress in all the standard mesh sizes plus standard fitmesh sizes
  • Matching bracelets, armbands, earrings, and necklace

Bouquet

One more bouquet_001_001

Bouquet.

Some things just stand out. The Outer Garden is an intentionally white garden created for visitors to admire, photograph, and just take some time to gaze around in. I found it also made my new gown stand out like a spring bouquet in a winter wonderland. This felt apt, as lately it’s been wet and cold here in real life where I live, and I felt like a splash of color on a backdrop of white was sort of fitting and also strangely beautiful.

Pick this bouquet up…

… from Purplemoon Creations. This is the newest free group gift from Purplemoon Creations. The group tag will set you back the small fee of 50L, but Purplemoon Creations is known for being generous with gifts and hunts, making the fee well worth it to be part of the group. This gown alone is worth the fee in my opinion.

Sizes included:

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