Nostalgia

Nostalgic

Have you ever been nostalgic for something? Like the smell of an old bookstore or the sights and sounds of a record store. It’d be great to be able to just snap your finger and be instantly transported into a record store straight outta the movies. Like Championship Vinyl from High Fidelity, Trax from Pretty in Pink, Polymer Records from This is Spinal Tap, Motormouth Maybelle’s in Hairspray, Chelsea Drugstore from A Clockwork Orange, or Empire Records of Empire Records. I think it would be awesome to visit Trax. When I grab the Men Only Hunt gift from Ascend and saw the way the Rick Open button Blazer looked. It gave me them Duckie vibes.

I came up with a Duckie inspired outfit, decked out a record store in 80’s vibes, and put on some Otis Redding. Before you know it I was singing
“All you got to do is, man, hold her when you wanna
Squeeze her, don’t tease her, never leave her
Get to her, got, got, got to try a little tenderness, yeah, yeah
You got to know how to love her, man
Don’t be surprised, man
You got to squeeze her, don’t tease her, never leave
You got to hold her, brother, something, man
Try a little tenderness, yeah, yeah, yeah”
and dancing around just like Duckie. You better dance your way over to Ascend and grab this Rick blazer soon. You only have eight more days before the Men Only Hunt ends. You’ll be looking for a PS controller and this hunt gift will set you back 10L. Pardon me while I dust off my vinyl and get back to dancing and listening to some tunes.

Alleycat Ballet

Alleycat Ballet

Alright so I’m gonna call this look a little bit Flash Dance, and a little bit Cats. haha I actually had a lot of fun dressing up and taking photos in this, especially since the outfit is completely free. I picked up the top, bottom, and adorable socks for free at Voluptas Virtualis. As soon as I put the outfit on I felt nostalgic for those iconic ’80s and ’90s dance movies. Maybe it’s time for a movie marathon? haha

This awesome gift from Voluptas Virtualis is free for everyone. The matching “Hadi” top and bottom come in female sizes only, however the fuzzy socks come sized for male avatars as well as female. Both gifts are packaged together. Just click the vendor near the landing point and the gift will be sent to you. The “Hadi” set has a color/texture change hud with some fun tiger stripe options and solid colors. You can also hide/show the trim or color it separately. The socks have a color/texture change hud with lots of options. Also, if kitty feet aren’t your thing, fear not, there are solid color choices as well as stripes. I have no idea how long this gift will be available, so don’t wait!

P.S. There are also several other freebies in the same spot at Voluptas Virtualis, no group needed!

Outfit Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza Freya, Legacy Female

Have a Holly Jolly Christmas

Jolly Christmas

In all the hustle and bustle of the holidays, one of my favorite things is decorating outdoors. There’s something magical about all the lights and colorful décor. That being said, when you’re not exactly tall, the right shoes can be a big help when hanging lights and wreathes. These shoes by Utopia are perfect for hanging lights, and reaching the top of the Christmas tree. They also happen to be one of the many free gifts out at FaMESHed. I also happen to think they look quite well with the FaMESHed group gift sweater by RIOT. Keep reading for details about each of these gifts that helped create this festive holiday look.

Utopia

These boots. The moment I saw them I thought ooo these look like super hero boots! And I mean that in the most endearing way. I love them, and could only ever pull them off here in Second Life. They are Utopia’s free gift at FaMESHed. To get your copy you’ll need to be in the free-to-join FaMESHed event group. Then click the giftbox outside the Utopia booth at FaMESHed while wearing your group tag.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), Slink (Hourglass, Physique)

RIOT

RIOT also has a FaMESHed group gift out, which is of course free. The RIOT gift is really 2 gifts however, in that there is a Jane sweater for the ladies, and Jasper sweater for the gentlemen. Both sweaters come in red or green with several size choices. Don’t forget your FaMESHed group tag.
