April Comes Early

Selene Creations April GG

Hello again Fab Free! The weekend is near, and so is the first of April! This means several shops will start putting out their April group gifts! I love group gifts, if you think about it they are a lot like all the member loyalty programs we see in real life. So I thought I’d share with you the first of the April group gifts I’ve come across.

Yes, this cute little black and white dress is already available for FREE at Selene Creations. This fully mesh dress is FREE to all group members and the group is a one time fee of 50 linden to join. This pretty dress with it’s stylized floral pattern is great on it’s own or could be cute with a jacket or cardigan. This style of dress is so versatile, and great for spring and summer.

You’ll find this group gift on the second floor of the grey building at the Selene Creations main location. Additionally there is a Midnight Mania board with no group needed, and several Lucky Letter boards!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

The Good Goth

Goth Moment

There must be something goth-y in the air! With me, there’s always a little something goth goin’ on, I just don’t always show it. The “goth” look like the music of it’s time is very nostalgic for me. I don’t think I’ll ever not secretly (or not so secretly) love dark lips combined with black and grungy plaid clothing. All this being said, I couldn’t help but get a little giddy when I saw the Flippant gacha at the current round of SWANK.
Goth Close
This is the end-all-beat-all of girly goth fashion in one gacha machine, and at 40 lindens per play, you won’t feel guilty about indulging. This gacha from Flippant includes 1 rare accessory set, 1 uncommon top, 1 uncommon tattoo, 8 common pairs of boots, and 8 common skirts with textures to match the boots. Also, this “Oh Good Goth” gacha machine can be played at the SWANK event or at the Flippant main location. The cost per play is the same at both places. The top and skirt come in several mesh sizes for easy fitting, while the boots have re-size scripts. There are no “feet” required to wear these shoes. I just love the little socks! The shoulder blade rosary tattoo includes classic system layers, as well as appliers for Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza bodies. The rare accessory set has a multi-finger ring that seems to fit Slink Elegant1 hands, a right and left bracelet, matching necklace, and cross earrings (not shown). Each piece in the accessory set has re-size scripts. So you can see the details, I also included a copy of the gacha key for the Flippant Oh Good Goth gacha machine below.

I hope you like this look as much as I know I do! Happy Gacha-ing!!

Candy Girl

Sugar

It’s the weekend!! Time for some something fun! The most recent group gift at The Sugar Garden is deliciously cute and girly. VIP Group members can pick up this candy themed necklace and bracelet set for FREE in the VIP room. The Sugar Garden VIP room is to the right at the landing point. Additionally, there are several past group gifts and promotional items still available such as these glassy rainbow eyes, the raspberry lip gloss, and these fun sparkly face stickers! There is a one time group join fee of $350 lindens, however there are monthly gifts and as mentioned before, instant access to several previous gifts.

The second I saw this Group Gift from Remarkable Oblivion, I knew it was perfect to go with the sugary sweet jewelry from The Sugar Garden. I really enjoy the combination of  the sweet treats printed on the fabric of the bow, and the punkish spiked stud accents. This adorable bow is just one of several group gifts out at Remarkable Oblivion. Just wear your group tag. There is a small group join fee of $50 lindens, worth it! This hair bow is honestly my favorite part of the whole ensemble. It’s cute, and the textures are really beautifully done.

Feeling the need for something pink and girlish to go with my sugary sweet accessories, I picked up this halter top and skirt set for FREE from B!atsa at Fab Free Headquarters. The top is regular clothing layers, with an optional applier for Lolas Tango. No need to join a group, just come out to FFHQ and pick it up! Also, don’t forget to check out the other Fabulous gifts available.

Here are the details, enjoy!

All is calm, All is bright

December has to be one of the best months in SL if you’re a Hunt enthusiast! For this post, I’m showing you some of the wonderful prizes from the 1L Silent Night Hunt. There are a ton of shops participating in the hunt so there’s going to be something for everyone: everything from textures to fashion to home décor. To kick us off is Wicked Sins creations “Joyful” dress. Need to play Santa? This would be perfect! The dress comes with the wide leather belt and a jaunty Santa hat too.

SNH1_001
I paired it with .:Glint:.‘s gemmed snowflake and bells necklace and earrings set and Dreams Fashion’s Savvy buckle boots for Slink High feet.  La Boheme gave me the perfect red toenails to peep from the boots with their “winterberries” set. Their prize includes both the mani and the pedi in white berries or black berries.

Next up is B-UniQ’s “A Holiday Wish” dress. I love the short but so elegant dress. I’m thinking holiday cocktail parties.

SNH2_002

This Hunt is terrific for cute dresses. This is Living Vintage Couture’s “Gum Drop” dress and true to it’s name, it’s a treat.  It goes perfectly with GDit Jewelry’s “Frosted Flake” snowflake necklace.

snh3_001

I paired up Glintzz and KOALA Designs prizes for the last shot. Glintz gives us these bright red combat boots with black laces and the little snowman shoulder friend while KOALA supplies the snowflakes jeans. ( Plus a good close up of GDit’s snowflake necklace.)The Christmas red sweater is a freebie from Sweet Poison I found on the Marketplace. But it looks like it meant to be part of this set!

The Silent Night Hunt runs from December 1rst to the 30th so you’ve got loads of time to gather up all the prizes before the holiday is over. Happy Hunting!

What’s your favourite thing about space?

Mine is space the futuristic fashion 😉

The inspiration for this post was seeing May Tolsen’s release for the current round of Kustom9 – ‘Space Friends‘ are so adorable  that I knew I had to have some for my very own. These detailed original meshes are designed to be worn as attachments but I thought it would be fun to rez them for this post; I resized ‘My Home,’ (taking care to make a note of its original dimensions so I could return it back to its intended state once I was done) and I love the results!

Of course, setting up a space-themed post meant I got to shop for lots more cool stuff (not that I ever really need much of an excuse.) I stumbled across Nylon Popstar‘s leotards a little while ago and I knew they would be the perfect starting point for my outfit – there are 9 colours to choose from, each including 2 transparancy options, multiple layers and Phat Azz and Lolas appliers for only L$50 a pack. Hopefully the pictures speak for the amazing quality of the texture itself – it really is that shiny!

A search for space-y items on Marketplace returned these funky boots by Killer Cerise and I just had to have them: the style and texture is just so cute! I resized them slightly and used the alpha for my Slink feet rather than the one included as my legs are pretty small.. but that is the beauty of modifiable items, with just a little tinkering you can have them fit pretty much any shape you choose to be.

I found Olli Braveheart‘s hair store, LCKY, thanks to a fellow blogger and I’m now a big fan: the styles there are really something special and the colours in the packs are some of the loveliest I’ve seen. The one I’m wearing here is an older style which fitted perfectly under Dolce Blackflag‘s fab helmet – there are currently 15 discounted styles out in store sold in colour packs costing only L$50 each.

I’ve layered quite a lot of eye makeup for an ‘out of this world effect’ but the skin itself is a lovely dollarbie from the ever-fabulous MiaSnow (back in-world again, yay!): its lips were already a perfect match for my chosen outfit.

I hope you enjoy this look at least a little as much as I’ve enjoyed creating it!

Until next time,

Lucky Poison

Lcky Hair + Cute Poison Necklace

I was feeling a bit playful and wanted some attire to match my mood! I stumbled upon this fabulous freebie hair Shy from [LCKY].  It may be a color tester hair but it is truly fabulous and comes with a HUD to change between 25 different colors.

LCKY + Cute Poison Colors

Above are just a few of the colors available in Shy by [LCKY]. 

The fun Meow necklace is the Pink Fusion Hunt gift from Cute Poison.

That hunt is over but Cute Poison’s prize is still out as of today! Go nab it for five lindens!

Lcky Hair + Cute Poison JewelryThe April Group Gift at Cute Poison (still available) is the Heart Ring shown above and has three color changeable parts. The band can be black, silver, or gold – which is very handy to match it to your outfit! 😉

Visual Hunt

I had a notecard come through this morning about the Visual Hunt. Sixteen stores are involved and the hunt object you are looking for is an dark grey gothic cross. Each cross costs 10L but believe me it is totally worth it. The hunt goes on until July 31st and its great fun to learn more about the J Rock and Visual Kei culture in SL aswell as RL.

Kanzen ni Jrock is the starting point, but I failed in finding the actual hunt item there. There are several shops in one area here so you might get confused but its only a small area so you won’t be searching for hours. If you can’t find it, number 2 stop in the hunt is Actuate Eden

+ Efflorescence Eye Piece – Actuate Eden
+ Lace and Symbols hat – Ideal Illusion
+ Rose Tattooes – Demise
+ Pants by Trap ( not free, not in the hunt )
