Before and After

IMG_2289

Cheerio gang!

This post is not your typical before and after.  Oh gosh I *do* love me a before and after, you know when they do makeovers?  It is one of my fondest wishes to one day get a makeover by professionals.  Alas.  But I love a makeover, it’s always so exciting to see what changes they make and how awesome whomever or whatever they were working on came out!

This is kind of a reverse before and after to showcase the awesome goodies I got at the Arcade Event, courtesy of Pare’.  Now, if you want to get all the juicy details of how the new system at the arcade works, I spelled it all out in my previous post here.  With that out of the way, let’s get on to the fun stuff, the goodies!  The machine for Pare’ is called Night Crawlers and is 75L a play and I had to come back on subsequent days to get both the outfits I was lucky enough to grab.  The above was the pink, which I love.  The below photo shows the Halloween version which I was lucky enough to get on my second day try.  I was originally going to just blog the pink one, but when I got the Halloween one as well, I couldn’t resist combining the two.

So, what exactly do I call my before and after?  The first photo, above, is before the Zombie Apocalypse, the second photo before is, well, after, obviously, and our brave heroine can tell she has become outnumbered and she is about to become Zombie herself.  Notice how she is biting her lip in distress?  So she has gone from geek chic to zombie hunter.

As I stated in my previous post, you choose the size you want to play for in the machine and I chose Maitreya Lara as that is what I wear.

Lessons learned by our lovely heroine… a gun works better than an axe when fighting zombies.  Unfortunately.

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!

Treat, or Trick??

Trick or Treat? Trick!

So….

One of our readers contacted me with a tip.  She said she found a place with lots of great deals and it would be perfect on Fab Free and gave me the LM.    I thought awesome.  We can always use more goodies for you guys and I happily went off to check it out.  What an awesome treat this was going to be!

However….  all was not as it seemed!  Little did I know that this was a trick.

I came to a cute little cottage and thought it must just be a little shop, but the door was locked, so I knocked, but once I did, this sign appeared!  The door opened on it’s own and I was pulled inside a pitch dark room, I couldn’t see anything!  I only felt cold, foul smelling breath on my neck and something strong had me in its grasp!  A deep, gravely voice spoke, much too close to my ear for comfort.  “Why have you come here?”  I struggled to catch my breath and speak.

“I… I… I only…”

“Speak!” the voice shouted and I felt spittle hit my face in the dark and that foul breath again.  I could feel something sharp against my skin.

I was shaking uncontrollably.  I forced myself to speak, though barely a whisper came out. “Tr…  tr…. trick, or…. orr…. tr”

“What did you say?” It shook me hard and the voice seemed to get angrier every time it spoke.  I felt the blood draining from my limbs as the unknown entity held me ever tighter each time.

I knew there was one thing to do and one thing only, so I tried to take a deep a breath as I could, and said as loudly and forcefully as possible “I said… TRICK OR TREAT!”

I felt the ground under my feet start to crumble and I started to lose my footing, the creature was screaming as if in agony, I lost my balance and fell forward onto the broken ground.  It was only then I realized the creature (or whatever it was!) had let go, and I ran for where the door had been, my hands fumbled against the wall in the darkness.  I felt something thrashing behind me and the screams continuing, I thought surely someone must be able to hear all this noise!  Please, please let someone hear and come help me!  I was panicked, but I suddenly felt the knob of the door and pulled it open with all my might!

I ran back into the daylight, as fast as my legs could carry me!  There were spiders on my face and I tried to brush them off as I ran, I felt scratches I had gotten from the struggle and something, what was it?  Something black was oozing out of my mouth!  How did that even get there???  What happened to me?!

In my confusion I wasn’t looking where I was running and I stepped off an embankment and lost my footing, I was falling!  Autumn colors blurred past my eyes!  There was nothing to catch, I was heading for the ground!

And then I woke up!  Whew!  I hate weird dreams like that!!!

oh yes and I’m wearing a gift for Shop and Hop from Limited Addiction, no group required and completely free.  It fits:

  • Maitreya
  • Legacy

My cute shoes are free from the Shop and Hop as well, made by KC Couture and they fit:

  • Belleza
  • Kalhene Erika
  • Kupra
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

More goodies as listed below.  😉  They may have taken my sanity in that little house, but they sure as heck didn’t get my freebies!!!!

Happy October!  😀

Horror Vibes

Horror Vibes

Hello hello Fab Free’rs, of the many many things I love about what I like to call Halloween season are the scary movies. I’m particularly fond of classic horror, and I can’t help but love the horror comedy smashup that is Young Frankenstein. What does all of that have to do with this post? Why the pillows of course! I have a few fabulous freebie finds to share for this post. I hope you like them.

MoonPhase

These too-cool-for-words pillows and the cheeky embroidery wall art pieces are a free group gift at MoonPhase. These decor items are all every bit as awesome in person as they are in photos. The MoonPhase group is free to join. Also, there are other free group gifts available.

ChicModa

In addition to the fantastic decor items, I picked up the latest group gift at ChicModa. My cropped tee reads “Drink Up Witches” and I think it is so so cute. The ChicModa group is free to join for a limited time, so do not wait to join!

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass, MeshBody Legacy
ChicModa Group Gift // Drink Up Witches Top
Project Crystal’s Fashion

Lastly, a new-to-me shop called Project Crystal’s Fashion has a pair of perfect-for Halloween body suits for just 1 linden on the Marketplace. I did attempt to find an in-world location, but was unsuccessful. I’ve always liked the idea of wearing certain more lingerie-like pieces as outerwear in a fashion sense. This is for me one of those “fashion experiments” if you will. I wore one of the BOM layer bodysuits under the high-cropped top from ChicModa.

Fab Free Designer Friday 2.0 – Cureless

Welcome back for this, another late night edition of Fab Free Designer Friday. Cureless is our designer for this week, so get ready for something a little, or a lot, different. Different done beautifully, Cureless is a clothing and accessories shop with a style that leans toward kawaii but is heavy on the creepy factor. So creepy kawaii? That’s a thing, right?! Even the shop location on the Curemore sim has a sort of a dark dystopian vibe.

At Cureless most of what you’ll find is for female avatars, however there are some things that are either unisex or made for male avatars also.  There’s everything from clothing and accessories to body modifications like tattoos, and eyes. I do feel I should warn, some of what is available at Cureless is rather gory, expect to see some blood and horror themed items. There’s a lot for role players here as well. The styles range along the dark fantasy lines including goth, anime, cybernetics, and everything in-between. All of it is in gorgeous if gory detail. There’s even large section of creepy but cool body modifications and scarification tattoos. Honestly, Cureless is the type of store that you just need to experience all they have to offer for yourself. If you’re not bothered by the afore mentioned creep factor that is.

Store Group 

As for the Cureless Store group, it has a one time join fee of 99 linden. As a Cureless group member you’ll get group gifts and first access to secret sales. Just behind the information desk is where you’ll find all the current group gifts. I counted 18 currently available gifts at this time. The gifts range from a unisex fur shawl to a tattoo set of surgery marks. There are also several sets of cool eyes up for grabs. I’d love to tell you about each of these gifts, but we’d be here all weekend. lol

Fab Free Group Gift 

There is also of course the free group gift for Fabulously Free in SL group members at Cureless. The lovely Aline showed it off in her post “Part of Something Bigger” which is really well worth the read. The gorgeous iridescent-like pale purple gown is free for all Fab Free in SL group members. You’ll find it waiting for you right next to the Cureless group gifts.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass, Hourglass Petite

Other Freebies and Fab Finds 

Cureless did participate in Fifty Linden Friday this week, which I know is almost over, Eeep! The FLF find at Cureless is a set of dragon themed face scars/markings for just 50 linden. The set comes in Omega appliers and BOM.

System Failure Halloween Game Part 1

If you love the survival horror genre of console games then this will be right up your dimly lit, zombie strewn street. Snatch and friends have created a very special interactive game that will run until the 17th of November. Please be aware that this is very gorey and is not for the squeamish. I have a high squeam factor and I found this quite icky in some places and very very tense and atmospheric!

When you land make sure you get your System Failure HUD package. You will need wear the HUD to be able to interact with everything and for it to register your progress and give you hints at what to do next by reading the green text that appears. It also registers any items you need to proceed. You also get the Lab coat and Employee Badge Lanyard shown below:

Bear in mind that this isnt a hunt, it is a game where you will have to interact with the background, read clues, finding codes and items that will help you proceed to the next part. Trust me you will need your eyes wide open along the way. As you move through the game you will also be looking for silver shield badges to purchase for L$0 .. these contain prizes donated by lots of generous designers.

My advice for you is… Interact with EVERYTHING, try to open things, read things, touch things and look EVERYWHERE! You never know what you might find or where you might find it! There are 60 or so hidden Shields to find.. I don’t think I found them all but I found a huge chunk of it! Please don’t ask me where specific things are because I really couldnt tell you their exact location as there are so many prizes and being involved in the game play is quite disorientating.

I will be doing this in a couple of parts as there are quite alot of things to show and I don’t want to hog the blog! I really hope you will give this a go as it is alot of fun! ALL of these items are found INSIDE the game as you move around the areas so there are no individual SLURLS to give.
