The darkness of the music of the night
I’m sure you’ve all figured out from my posts by now that I love hunts.  I like to visit new sims, find out about new stores and of course, search for fabulous gifts.  I stumbled on The Phantom of the Opera Hunt a few days ago and had to give it a try.  The best part– all the gifts are free.  The hunt took me to Jinx, where I got this Phantom of the Opera pose hud.  (The pose I am doing is called “iaaaa” on the HUD.)  Then later, Fugue, where after some hunting, I found this cute Operetta Dress.

No outfit is complete without some cute lipstick.  Nevrose has a six lipstick set for it’s free group gift. (the group is also free to join.)  It come in 6 colors with Catwa and Leluka appliers.

Fallen

Fallen

Oh I do love the Halloween hunt season here on the Grid. I am constantly amazed by the talented designers and the awesome clothes and jewelry and items they give us. For…free! I’ve done just enough building on second Life to know that this stuff is NOT easy so I hope you all thank your favorite designers and spend a Linden or two while you hunt.

SO, let’s talk Hunts. I’ve been bopping all over the Grid this week on Fallen gods Prophecy Hunt. Now, you only have until the 31rst to grab the HUD and finish the Hunt but that’s easily done. The Prophecy Hunt is a bit of a different breed of Hunt. First, you collect the Hunt HUD at the Fallen gods Sim. While you’re there, be sure to take a look at the special faire going on there.  Anyway, grab the HUD and teleport to the first store, find the hunt object ( An all – seeing eye) then you teleport to the next store. You don’t get the prize for each store till you complete the entire Hunt. The last teleport takes you to a massive prize room where you can pick and choose which ever free prizes you want or click the central pillar to receive all the prizes at once. Now, I know this sounds odd… but it works. The hunt objects are the fun challenging not the pull your hair out Twisted Hunt challenging. There were a couple of store that were… um… rather difficult. But, in the end, it was worth the frustration.

Having said all that… ya’ll still here… okay… Let’s look at some prizes.

My gorgeous gown is from Secrets of Gaia, this is the Asteria gown and it is stunning. I know my photo is gettin’ kinda artsy so I’m tossing the hunt photo for the prizes so you can see them. But I don’t think the Hunt photo does it justice. This thing is swoon worthy!

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique 

My new jewels are from On a Lark. The ‘Gotland Orb’ s included HUD has 14 choices of jewel color and three metals. I foresee using this one a lot!

Lastly, I have a nifty new toy: The Prophecy Star from Jinx. The Star has it’s own hold animation and it revolves and drifts in a random dance over your hand. It’s really fascinating to watch.

So… go grab your HUD and get hunting. Hmmm the veils of the other world are parting and I forsee ….. you! In the prize room… grabbing your 55 absolutely free fantastic prizes!

It’s Fall Y’all!

It's Fall, Y'all!

Ok, it’s officially Fall now, y’all!  It’s the season of warm colours, falling leaves, and so many lovely delights.  I love decorating for the Autumn, as is evidenced by all the fall decor I found in my inventory!  Are you ready to collect some more for your own pile of decorations?  Let’s do it!

House Proud

Ok, so Trompe L’Oeil is back to offering an awesome free gifts in the spirit of Stay at Home, and I couldn’t be more excited.  This amazing house can be yours for free, no need to join a group!  Just head over to the Trompe L’Oeil mainstore, and buy the house for 0L.  You’ll also find some lovely chairs there too (you can just see it on the porch in my photo), which are great for indoor or outdoor settings.  So awesome!  Now, I’m not sure exactly how long this house will be available as the Stay at Home club is closing in just 4 days.  However, Trompe L’Oeil’s Flickr account tells me it will be out for a few weeks.  Go get it!

Welcome Fall!

The pretty Autumn-themed letter blocks you see in front of the house are the latest group gift at Kraftwork.  They are just so lovely!  You can spell out anything you like with these blocks, as there are letters, numbers, symbols and even just plain blocks in wood or with the wreath design.  What a cool gift!  The Kraftwork group is free to join, and you’ll find plenty of group gifts on their wall.  Have fun!

Time for a PSL, methinks!

Dreaming

Dreaming

So yesterday was a day for reflection and I came to a conclusion… I need more fantasy in my life. I love showing off clothes and such but my heart is happiest with the RP and fantasy things. And what better way to get more fantasy than a long ride with Fiain my unicorn friend? I found a really lovely wood nymph-y dress to wear and to make it even more perfect… it’s free!

Am I dreaming

Dreaming Couture has set out this beautiful little dress: The Fairy Dress for all of us Fabulously Free group members. The dress comes in gold, silver blue and pixie green. There is one size and it seems to fit most. Be sure to take a look around the store when you pop over. There are several specials and some really cute things to add to your closet.

Sizes Included

  • One Size

Off the grid

Off the grid

As Juli would say… I am in a mood today, my friends. It’s one of those days that everything goes frustratingly wrong. I need a get-away. Luckily, I have a buddy who is always up for a good gallop in some wild part of the grid.

All the pretty horses

The Flying Pony has joined the Fabulously Free Family and become one of our Fab Designers. I know Juli and I can’t be the only equestrians  in the group, so let’s rally and show the love for all things horse. The Flying Pony has set out a beautiful new coat for free for all of us in the FabFree Group. Mystic, is wearing the “Badger Face” coat from the Flying Pony and it’s stunning. “Badger Face” refers to the white marking on the face. Horses with this coloration, have a sort of ‘inverted’ blaze. That is, they have the base coat color in a large swath inside the white of the blaze. It’s a fascinating color genetic. Especially when seen on a coat with a strong roaning, such as this one.

Comfort in the hood

One nice thing about just riding out on the grid, is I don’t have to dress to impress anyone but myself. I found this great looking and very comfortable hoodie out on the “Femboy Hunt” for only a little searching and 2 little Lindens.  The “Soft Hoodie” from Krankhaus has a great design of a Tarrot card-like ‘Death’ that fits the FemBoy Hunt theme “Occult” perfectly and sets it apart from the ton of other hoodies on the grid.

Sizes Included

  • Kuroo ( I wear Belleza and this style fits me very well)
  • Maitreya ( Shows a slite female shape)
  • V-Tech

Lady of the Lake

FabFree: Lady of the Lake

Hello there Fabulouses!  With Enchantment opening up their brand new King Arthur themed round recently, I was inspired to put together a way back in time, lady of the lake look!

Going Stag

My Guinevere Gown by Aleutia and The Lady of The Lake Pose by Nantra are available for purchase at Enchantment, but the news I thought our FabFree readers might be interested in learning about are these cool White Stags by Jinx!  These fall under our FabFree 75L limit as a gacha offering and with each play you’ll get a stag of some kind, no little chokers or booby prizes, just all stag!  You might even get lucky enough to get the giant ride on version!

Don’t blame me if you wind up spending a ton at the event, there is some seriously cool stuff there!

Winter is Coming

Winter is Coming

Four more days. Winter will come for us in four…more…days. The days of Ice and Fire are almost here.

Can you tell, I am soooo excited to see the return of one of my favorite shows: Game of Thrones. I have so many questions. Will Jon discover his birth-right? Will Cersei die? Will Brienne fall into Tormund’s eager arms? I can hardly wait for the 14th!  At least I can play out my GoT dreams on the Grid while I’m waiting. And I get to do it with a giant new friend! All thanks to the Ice and Fire Event going on until April 13th. I made the rounds and played a ton of gachas but this outfit and my companion Dire wolf are my favorites.

The Garb

My blouse, corset and skirt are from the Luas “Ondina” 50L perplay gacha.  The blouse and skirt each come in five colors while the corset comes in either black or brown leather. There is also a fur stole to win that I didn’t get. The RARE is a gorgeous full dress or a set of accessories.

Sizes Included

  • Maitreya Exclusive

The Jewels

My gorgeous necklace is ‘Melisandra’ from !dM. There are nine colors of stones to win and each one allows you to customize the fit and the colors of the metals and settings. Plus, there are three styles of necklace to win.

The Wolf

Once again, Jinx has just really wowed me! The “Dire Wolves” gacha is just amazing! There are fifteen common ‘static’ poses and three RAREcompanions for your 75L perplay. I say “Static” because these wolves are Animesh. So the statics breathe and blink. Some even wag their tails. Of course, you do need an animesh enabled viewer to see the movements but it is well worth the update. My companions movements are smooth and so very realistic.

Christmas Angel… of Frozen Death!!

Christmas Angel...of Frozen Death!!

 

Folks, I am feeling Fierce! Sometimes you just have to let your inner warrior elven queen out. Am I right??

Angel on the attack

This is the Gabriel set from Jinx and it’s awesome… and free! I was fortunate enough to pick up this set from Jinx’s Lucky Chairs over in the Group sandbox. It comes with everything you see… the body suit, the paldrons, the sheer coat, the moon staff and these amazing wings. It also comes with a pair of matching gladiator knee high heels I’m not wearing. The details in the wings and on the staff are just impeccable. The body suit, coat and shoes are all Classic Mesh sizes and even though I fussed, I wasn’t able to make the shoes work for my Maitreya feet. Shoes aside, I still love this outfit and I think it’s perfect for the RP closet!

Now, if y’all will excuse me… I’m going to go scare some innocent villagers!

Sizes Included

  • Classic mesh Sizes XXS-L

Think About Us Riding Wild Horses

Think About Us Riding Wild Horses

Happy weekend, fabulous readers! Fergus and I went for a lovely ride on the beach at the Cape Florida Lighthouse this afternoon.

We also picked up a few more goodies from The Beached Bunny Hunt 8 (TBBH8), and Fergus even found a freebie for himself along the way (not in the hunt, just to be clear)!

Wild Horses Couldn’t Keep Me Away (From This Hunt)

Our first stop was Sevyn East, where we found the Kendra top as their gift for TBBH8. It includes a HUD with 10 colorful summer textures, and comes in the following mesh sizes:

  • Standard mesh XXS–L with an alpha layer
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Tonic

BTW, I noticed that their gift from last year’s TBBH7 is still out, so make sure you grab the gift for this year’s hunt. I did that by accident and had to go back to find the right one!

Next, we headed over to Me’LanGe and picked up their gift for TBBH8, which is these Apple-Bottom Dazie Dukes shorts. And ladies, they are most definitely short!

The shorts come as an Omega applier and must be applied in 2 sections, top and bottom. If you are a Maitreya Lara body wearer, don’t forget to add your Omega Relay HUD before trying to apply the shorts (yep, I forgot to do that at first – DOH!).

Just a reminder: all gifts in TBBH8 are 1L each. The hunt runs through July 31st.

And Something for the Horses

As I mentioned, Fergus even found a freebie for himself.  🙂

The Painted Pony has a set out the chestnut-brown Crispin coat applier as a free gift for the Water Horse Bento Riding Horse. No group-join is needed. It will work on the draft as well as the light horses.

Enjoy!

❤ Serena

Happy Anniversary to the Water Horse Riding Horse!

Shamrocks

Today (March 25th) marks the one-year anniversary of the Water Horse Bento Riding Horse. To celebrate, Water Horse is offering a discount on ALL varieties of the riding horse!

Members of the Water Horse in-world group (free to join) will receive a 25% discount, and non-members will receive a 20% discount on any of the riding horses. Sale prices will remain in effect until 8:00 p.m. SLT TODAY ONLY.

In addition, many vendors in the Water Horse Mall have set out special anniversary gifts, so be on the lookout for free gift boxes in their stores (usually purple, but I did find one that was blue). I don’t know how long the gifts will be available, so best to grab them ASAP!

I have to say that I really enjoy my Water Horse Riding Horse. I’ve owned several other horses during my time in SL, but the Water Horse is without a doubt the most realistic and the most fun to ride. If you enjoy virtual horseback riding, you won’t want to miss this opportunity to buy a Water Horse at a fabulous price!

Finders, Keepers… Losers, Weepers?

And sadly, I’m a day late and a dollar short with this post! 😦

Unfortunately, the Finders, Keepers St. Patrick’s Day Hunt officially ended yesterday (March 24), but… as of the time of this posting, I was still able to find the hunt and discounted items I’m wearing in this photo. Amiable still had their t-shirt gift out, and REIGN still had their booth with the discounted sneakers.

If you want either of these items, RUN, don’t walk over to the stores and grab them before they’re gone!

❤ Serena
