Once Upon a Midnight Dreary

Nevermore

Hello Fabulouses!  Since Ripley and I found some fantastic hunt prizes lately, we decided to hit the trail once again.  This time, we set out along the Quoth the Raven Hunt path.  Over at Little 2 Large, we discovered this fabulous gown, and it only cost 1 little Linden dollar, plus a bit of searching time.  On the wall of the shop, you’ll find a hunt poster, which contains a helpful hint in case you get stuck.

With Many a Flirt and Flutter, In There Stepped a Stately Raven

The stately raven over at Little 2 Large actually brought *more* than just the gown in my picture.  In addition to a splendid frock, you’ll also receive male and female Dinkies outfits (Dinkies are these absolutely adorable mesh kitty avatars that you may have seen around the grid), a coordinating Nevermore men’s suit, and a petite Nevermore mini dress.  The additional prizes are no transfer, but if your man happens to come along with you on the hunt, for just 1 more Linden dollar, you can look all matchy-matchy.  As you can see from my picture, the gown starts out black at the bodice, but transitions into a soft gray texture, which reminded me of watercolors.  I really love the intricate black lace that adorns the sexy, full length slits in the skirt as well as the generous hemline.  The “sleeves” on the bodice resemble black feathers, and the package also included shoulder feathers that I opted not to wear.  For just a dollar, this fabulous hunt prize will have you all set up for formal fall parties, whether you have a classic or a mesh body avatar.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fitmesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layer)
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Physique

Ripley has taken to growling at that beguiling Raven, for that bird (to quote from Poe himself):

“…never flitting, still is sitting, STILL is sitting…

just above my chamber door…”

I’d better see if I can help the pupster escape unharmed from “The Raven.”  Until next time, happy hunting!

The Boo Bunny Cast a Spell on Me

My Favorite Color is October

Hello Fab Free!  Ripley and I are wrapping up a week of vacation, but before we head back to our normal routine, I wanted to share with you one of our discoveries from the Boo Bunny Hunt.  It cost just one Linden dollar and includes both my cropped top and curve hugging pants.  One thing I love about this find is the fact that it is covered with a printed design that fits right in with the witchcrafty-season we are in, but is subtle enough so this is an outfit you will be able to wear well past Halloween.

Magical Runes

Over at the Indigenous Designs shop, the pupster and I discovered the hunt object, a piece of Halloween candy, after just a short time spent searching.  After opening the package, I was delighted to discover details such as the unfastened buckle on the top, and the generous cut of the sleeves and lower cuffs on the pants.  One of my favorite hues to wear in RL is this deep shade of forest green, but it can often be too dark without additional pops of color.  The gold tones in the printed design on the Devil’s Runes Outfit provided just the right amount of contrast and seasonal flair.  Long pants, full length sleeves, and a half turtle neck collar ensure you’ll stay cozy on brisk autumn days, while the short hem of the top allows for a cheeky glimpse of skin.  With versions for classic as well as mesh avatars, there’s something in this hunt prize for everyone.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, and L (includes separate alpha layers for pants and top)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • EBody
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

Although we enjoyed our fall break vacation, Ripley and I missed you all, and are looking forward to sharing more Fabulous Finds with our favorite readers.  Until our next post, happy hunting!

We’re Spending Fall Break at the Beach

Day One of Fall Break

Hello Fabulouses!  I’m popping in tonight with a quick post which is rather time sensitive.  The adorable micro skirt and tied top I’m wearing in my photo are only up for grabs for a special price until tomorrow.  Anny’s Fashion is offering this cute set as their Syndicate Sunday offering for this week, but if you like it, you’ll have to quickly scamper over to the shop because the event only continues through October 9th.

I Know Fall’s Here, But…. Beaches in SL….

I’m as much into the Halloween season as the rest of the Fab bloggers, but Ripley has been pestering me to take him to the beach so he can indulge in playing hide and seek with seagulls, and a girl has to have a sweet skimpy outfit for the sand and surf, am I right?  The best part of SL is being able to visit a chilly autumn sim one moment, and then -poof- teleporting to a summer oasis the next.  For just 60 Linden dollars, Anny’s Fashion had me all set for a lazy day soaking up the sun in my new Loren outfit.   It features a sassy micro skirt (you’ll need panties under this one for sure) and a knotted cropped top.  The generous designer tucked a texture change HUD packed with 20 options for the skirt and 25 for the top inside the box, so you will be able to create quite a variety of looks with just this one purchase.  With both classic and mesh body versions, I’m sure you’ll find the right fit for your avatar.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XXS, SS, S, M, and L (includes alpha layer)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

Well, there’s a pelican here giving me the stink eye, so I think maybe Rip overstepped his boundaries.  The gulls are up for a game, but pelicans can be a bit grumpy.  I’d better collect the rascal and head on home.  Until next time, happy shopping!

Taking Time Out for Some Leaf Peepin’

Time Out for Leaf Peeping

Hello Fabulouses!  One of my favorite parts of autumn (when I lived in a place that actually had four seasons) was going for a stroll in the woods with my pup by my side.  Although I still have a beloved canine, I have to get my leaf peeping fix on Second Life.  After seeing Aline’s posts here and here, Ripley and I decided to check out the Boo Bunny Hunt for ourselves, and came across this gorgeous cropped cowl neck top for just 1 Linden dollar.  

Time to Break Out the Sweaters

When I checked out the prize preview page, I really liked the picture of OMG Inc.’s Ladies Hooded Swarl, so I dusted off Rip’s tracking harness and we headed over to the shop to try our luck.  With the pupster’s talented nose (and the helpful hints page), we quickly discovered the hunt object, a piece of fall candy.  I was thrilled to notice when I opened the prize package that the designer had tucked a texture change HUD with 5 options for colors/patterns inside.  So, for just 1 tiny Linden dollar, it was like I got five different tops in one!  Although it’s not specifically designed for mesh avatars, I was able to get just the right fit by adjusting the alpha layer on my Maitreya Lara mesh body.  This poncho type sweater features a generous folded down cowl neck secured with two chunky buttons, a knitted ribbed texture, and an asymmetrical length which keeps your back toasty warm and allows a sexy glimpse of skin in the front.  I think you could also wear a tank underneath on really chilly days if you’d prefer.  Although I chose to pair the top with a rugged pair of leather pants for a casual look, I think it would also look fab when combined with a skirt.  The sky’s the limit!

Sizes Included:

  • XS
  • S
  • M
  • L
  • includes alpha layer for classic avatars

Ripley and I are gonna head back down the hunt path and see what else we can discover.  Yes, Pal, there will be some Ripley Snacks at the end of our journey!  Until my next post, happy hunting!

Let a Hundred Flowers Bloom

Autumn's Blooms

Hello Fabulous Readers!  Ripley and I are popping in with a quick post to share one of our discoveries as we checked out the hunt going on at the Rock Your Rack Event.  It costs only 10 little Linden dollars, and features just the cutest botanical design.

Autumn Posies

Over at the Maci booth, if you can find the coat hanger with the heart on it (it’s not that hard to locate), you can scoop up the Autumn Blooms skirt for yourself.  With a cheerful floral print across a black background, this mini can pair with a top in a variety of colors from black as I chose to wear, to red, pink or white.  I really like the decorative white stitching along the waist and hem lines; it adds a bit of visual contrast.  The waistline sits low, just below your belly button so if you wear a cropped top, you can show off some skin while the temperatures outside are still fairly mild (unless you live near Love in which case you are stuck with snow).  Since the package includes sizes for classic as well as mesh body avatars, I’m sure you’ll find the right fit for your avatar.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L (includes alpha layer
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

I hope you have a wonderful Friday tomorrow.  I know I’m sure looking forward to a relaxing weekend.  Until my next post, happy hunting!

Les Jolie Fleurs

Antiquing With My Pal

Hello Fabulouses!  While out looking for antiques, Ripley and I stumbled across a new-to-us shop called FAFA.  As I wandered through the store, drinking in all the vibrant hues and tribal prints, the pupster did what he does best……..he sniffed out a free gift.  All I had to do  was switch to my SL Frees and Offers group tag, tap the vendor, and I took home a sweet new tank top – all for zero linden dollars!

Il y a Des Fleurs

That’s about the extent of the French I still remember from high school, but the heading really seemed to fit this gift.  Featuring delicate blossoms and greenery scattered across a cream colored background, the Fleur Tank is *almost* long enough to double as a short dress.  With the right pair of leggings or tights, you could definitely pull off a dressier look, but I opted to don on a pair of beige pants for a more casual outfit.   Where I live in RL, it’s still plenty warm enough for tank tops (still in the triple digits here), and one of the best things in SL is you can wear whatever you please and still be comfy and cozy, so this top made a welcome addition to my wardrobe.  I bet it will to yours, as well.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Ebody
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

Well, we still haven’t discovered just the right piece of furniture for the corner of the great room, so Rip and I are off to do some more antiquing.  Until next time, happy shopping!

Somewhere in Springfield Wood

Strolling in Springfield Wood

Hello Fabulous Readers!  After a long week at work, I’m looking forward to a couple of days off with my pal.  As soon as I logged in to SL, I slipped into this comfy outfit, and we teleported over to Springfield Wood to decompress and take in the beautiful scenery.  Aren’t the wildflowers in this meadow gorgeous?

Just Right for Friday Casual

My Laura Outfit today is the latest free gift for members of Fabulously Free in SL from MOoH!.  With its frayed capris and striped top, it was perfect for our stroll through the sim.  I really liked the way the soft shade of blue in the striped top coordinated with the worn denim pants, but if blue is not your color, the generous designer included a HUD with three other color choices – gray, pink and red.  The open top is fastened with two buttons in front and features half length sleeves and a stand up collar.  Since the package includes versions for classic as well as mesh avatars, I’m sure you’ll find just the right size for you.  You can mix and match these separates with items in your inventory for added versatility.  Best of all, this set is completely free.  All you need to do is activate your Fab Free Group tag, teleport over to the shop and click the vendor.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fit mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes separate alpha layer for top and capris)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

While I was typing up this post, Ripley spotted a squirrel frolicking nearby and trotted over to investigate.  Apparently, Mr. Squirrel was not in the mood for company and scrambled up a tree.  Now the pupster is parked at the base of the pine, barking and whining.  I think I’d better go intervene so the woodland creature can get back to gathering stores for the coming winter.  Until next time, happy shopping!

This is My Song

This is My Song

Hello Fabulouses!  I’m popping in with a quick post to share another of the prizes that Ripley and I discovered at the Country Music Life Hunt which is currently running over at Brii Underground.  All in all, there are 10 complete outfits awaiting discovery in the store for just 6 Linden dollars each.  Since the event runs until September 30th, there’s still plenty of time for you do do some hunting of your own.

Call Me a Pollyanna, Do

My entire outfit from the tip of my cowboy hat down to my buckled high heel boots comes all neatly packaged inside prize box #08 in the hunt.  Featuring a three quarter length knotted shirt layered over a black bra and worn denim shorts, the Pollyanna outfit will have you all set to enjoy a late summer September day in the country.  The yoke and cuffs on the top are decorated with a wild west revolver print for that added cowgirl touch.  Faded denim shorts ride low on your waist and show off a bit of skin.  The boots come with slouchy socks to keep your tootsies plenty warm.  Both the socks and the bra are added with an Omega friendly applier.  Also included, but not worn in my photo is a make up layer and black bandana.  You get everything you need for this adorable ensemble all for the low price of just six Linden dollars and the time it takes you to seek out the hunt object.  Now that’s quite a deal!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • EBody
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

Well, that’s a wrap for tonight.  Until my next post, happy hunting!

‘Tis the North Wind that Lashes Men Into Vikings

Into the Woods

Hello there, Fabulous Readers!  The pupster and I are popping in really quickly to share a free gift for the guys that Kat spotted when she was looking for prizes in the Country Music Life Hunt.  If you are into role play, this outfit will be right up your alley!  I really like the layered look of the Igor Viking Theme Costume.  The package includes everything you see from my rugged tunic and long sleeved undershirt right down to my brown leather boots.  Also tucked inside is a braided Viking hairstyle and full beard, but I opted not to wear them for my photo.  Although there was no version specifically made for mesh bodies, I was able to get a good fit by adjusting the alpha layer on my Belleza Jake body.  I did have to make use of the Igor mesh hands, which come with the gift because no matter what I tried, I could not get the hands with my body to work right.  They looked pretty natural, though, as you can probably tell from my picture.

What’s Inside the Box:

  • Outfit for Classic Avatars in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layer)
  • Igor Boots in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Resizable Viking Hair (not shown in photo)
  • Resizable Viking Beard (not shown in photo)
  • Igor Hands – left and right

To pick up this fantastic period costume, just head on over to the men’s section upstairs at Brii Underground, activate your Brii Underground Wear group tag (it costs 200L to join), and click the vendor.  I’m off to look for a sturdy longship to sail so Ripley and I can explore foreign lands.  Until next time, happy shopping!
