Ghost Hunter

Ghost Hunter

A Hunting We Will Go

Hello fabulous readers! The weekend is almost here, and I am sooo glad!

SL Halloween season is in full-swing, so I decided to take a break from RL work to do a little hunting. But boy, I had no idea what I was getting myself into!

An Easy Find

Thankfully, my first find didn’t require much any hunting at all. I just popped into the store and grabbed it, and you can too! Just head over to S@BBiA and join the FREE in-world group to snap up this festive outfit.

The Halloween Gift includes the SleeveRibbon Dress, which is a one-size-fits-all mesh dress with an alpha layer. The pumpkin-orange booties are included and are sized for Maitreya and Slink medium/mid feet. They even come with a texture-change HUD to change the socks from purple and black to white and black or remove them completely.

Level of Difficulty = 11

And now for something completely different!

One of my favorite nail designers, Hello Dave, is holding a HUGE hunt on the Moochie sim. My hunting gear – the flashlight and cute bag – are both from the Halloween Hunt 2017 information kit. To get yours, head over to the Hello Dave main store and click the sign. You don’t even have to be a member of the in-world group to participate.

The information folder includes:

  • a flashlight
  • 8 different trick-or-treat bags
  • a map of Moochie so you won’t get lost like I did
  • a notecard list of all the hunt items you must find
  • a clickable HUD to help you keep track of your finds

I’ve done some difficult hunts in my day, but wow, this one is hard! There are 42 different items to find (yes, you read that right), and don’t even bother trying to cheat with an area search because the hunt items have all been renamed. Some are easy to find, and some are… well, let’s just say, after 4 days, I’m still looking for them. :-/

If you hang in there and find all the hunt items, you will receive some awesome prizes:

  1. 20 Exclusive Hello Dave nail palettes, compatible with Maitreya, Omega, Slink, Vista, Belleza, and Empire.
  2. 500L store credit to spend at Hello Dave.
  3. Your name, immortalized on the blood board of WINNERS for all to see.

Since I haven’t found all 42 hunt items yet, I can’t show you any of the prizes. But I wanted to make you aware of this hunt so you can get an early start. Trust me, you’ll need it!

One piece of advice: make sure you allow plenty of time for everything to completely rez. I found that each time I went back to the sim, new items showed up, and I was able to find more.

Hello Dave Halloween Hunt 2017

Even if you don’t finish the hunt, the Halloween-themed Moochie sim is a lot of fun to explore and enjoy (although, a bit laggy at times), with plenty of scenic spots for photos.

On a side note: Hello Dave is also participating in the “SL’s Top Haunted Places Hunt,” so be on the lookout for a little gift box that you just might stumble across without trying (I did!). You can grab an info notecard in the store, and there’s a hint-giver at the Halloween Hunt landing spot.

Happy (haunted) hunting!  😈

Sweater Weather

Dog Days

Sweater Weather is Here and I Love It

Fall has officially arrived, and it seems like the weather has changed overnight. I’ll miss the warm summer days, but there’s just something exciting about crisp, cool autumn air and the changing colors of the leaves.

I picked up this shirt and sweater combo from Loordes of London as part of the I Love School Hunt. Though it’s actually meant to be worn as a dress, I decided that it was a bit too chilly out here, so I added a pair of jeans. The SL Retro Look top comes in standard mesh sizes XXS-L, as well as for Belleza mesh bodies.

The I Love School Hunt ends on September 30th, and all items are 1L.

I think it’s time for us to head inside for some hot chocolate.

Happy hunting! ❤

Zombie Hunter

Zombie Hunter

To get myself into the mood for Halloween, I decided to grab my crossbow and head over to Dystopia in search of zombies. Unfortunately, my car broke down, so it looks like I’ll be staying for a while.

Hang on, I think I see something moving behind that big pile of trash…

(For the record, there don’t appear to be any zombies at Dystopia. But if you’re looking for a well-designed, post-apocalyptic sim, you should definitely pay it a visit.)

The Outfit

What inspired my look today was the September group gift from Ghee. I’ve seen it styled a number of different ways on Flickr, but for some reason, when I put it on, I felt all Sarah Conner from The Terminator. All I had to do was add a weapon, and I was a bad@$$ zombie hunter! 😎

The VIP 09/17 GIFT from Ghee is a complete outfit that includes the cargo pants, tank top, and boots. The ribbed tank comes with a texture-change HUD with 6 different colors — black, yellow, orange, blue, pink, and the beige color I’m wearing — so you could definitely wear the tank as part of another outfit.

Sizes for the pants and top include:

  • Standard mesh XXS-L with alpha
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique

The boots are “one size fits all.” Just remember to remove your mesh feet first.

The Accessories

I shopped around quite a bit to find the perfect accessories for my look:

  • Hair – I picked up the Rossella Hair by Tableau Vivant at The Arcade for 50L. I love this “roots” version because everyone knows zombie hunters don’t have time to dye their hair, right?
  • Sunglasses – These super cool DESTRUCTINATOR glasses by TBF are available on the Marketplace for 10L. There’s no resizer, but you can edit > stretch to change the size.
  • Necklace – Another gacha, this time by Dahlia at The Imaginarium for 50L. Click for a resizer menu.
  • Bracelet – An oldie, but a goodie, by Eli Rae’s Tinkering, available for 5L on the Marketplace. There’s no resizer, and you can’t stretch either, so the size is what it is. Originally shown 4 years ago by Caresia Adored, some SL items just never go out of style. 🙂

The Weapon

No zombie hunter would be complete without a weapon, of course. I selected this scary crossbow by Blackburns, which I found on the Marketplace for 29L. It comes with a wearable version that hooks onto your back (without any straps, which I thought looked a bit odd), as well as the

It comes with a wearable version that hooks onto your back (without any straps, which I thought looked a bit odd), as well as the posed version that I’m showing here, which actually shoots. Oh, and it includes an arrow that you can wear in your head, if you like.

Sadly, I didn’t find any actual zombies to shoot at in Dystopia. But I did have fun firing at the trees on my sim, which scared the daylights out of my dogs. 😛

Happy hunting, folks!

A Moment to Reflect

A Moment to Reflect

Hello, fab readers! So much is going on in the world right now that I needed a moment to sit and reflect. My thoughts and prayers go out to all of you who are in the path of Hurricane Irma right now, and to those of you who are recovering from the devastation of Hurricane Harvey. I have family in Florida, so we are anxiously waiting and watching the storm’s progress.

A new group and a new gift

My adorable shirt is the latest group gift from Fashionably Dead. The Cropped Collar Tank is sized for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink mesh bodies, and includes a HUD with a fatpack of 4 different patterns for each. I’m wearing the one on the bottom right, which is actually quite a bit bluer than it appears in the HUD.

fdauggift

Fashionably Dead has a new in-world group which is currently free to join but will cost 100L after September 25th. They also have a new mainstore on the Lula sim, so be sure to update your landmarks!

Stay safe out there! ❤

Think Pink

Think Pink

Hello, Fab Readers! 🙂

I know I’ve mentioned many times before that I LOVE pink. So when I saw the sexy, pink group gift out from Nessmarket, I hurried over to grab it! The Lyrical top and skirt are sized for Maitreya and Slink mesh bodies. But you’ll need to hurry if you want this gift because there are only a limited number available – at the time of writing this post, there were only 110 left!

My pretty floral tattoo is a 1L Marketplace gift from La Femme. It’s called Tree of Life because there is a beautiful tree of life symbol on the back. I neglected to take a photo of the back, but you can see what it looks like by visiting the Marketplace link.

Speaking of pink, it looks like I’ve been photobombed by a flamingo!

What Does’t Kill You Makes You Stronger

Makes You Stronger

Happy weekend, fabulous readers — I hope you all are having a wonderful, relaxing summer! I’m still around and so happy to be back on the blog! I spent most of July sick in bed with a nasty respiratory infection, but I’m much better now (I hope) and glad to be back on my feet. With Carson sick too, this sure hasn’t been a good summer for the health of Fab Free bloggers! :/

I’ve got a couple of things to show you today, starting with this sexy dress from I. M. Collection. Annette comes in Fitmesh sizes S-L, as well as for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink mesh bodies. This one is a group gift, but if blue is not your color, there are some lovely versions in pink and gray for just 100L.

Makes You Stronger

Izzie’s put out these gorgeous eye appliers for the July VIP group gift. They come in 9 different colors and include mesh eyes with a HUD, as well as appliers for Catwa, Lelutka, and Omega eyes.

I should point out that my nails are also a group gift from Hello Dave. 6 colors are included, with appliers for Slink, Maitreya, and Omega hands.

One more thing: Fri.day is having a Summer Flash Sale this weekend until August 6th at 11 p.m. SLT, and lots of sandals will be on sale for just 50L! Not the ones I’m wearing here, unfortunately, but if you like them, you can pick them up at the current round of Uber. 🙂

Another Flower Child

Flower Child

Happy weekend, fabulous readers (or, what’s left of it, anyway)!

I think Kathryn and I were on the same Bohemian wavelength, with both of us choosing casual denim and flowers in our hair! My dog, Finn, has been off chasing birds somewhere… hopefully she hasn’t caused any damage while I was taking a nap in my van. 🙄

Causal in Denim

My summery, denim dress is just the latest group gift from Maci. It sports a sexy, tied halter back, quite a bit of cleavage, and is sized to fit the following:

  • Classic mesh XXS-L with alpha layer
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya (regular and autohide)
  • Slink
  • TMP

My necklace is the current group gift from Maxi Gossamer. It comes in 3 style combinations with 10 different colors for the stones. Click on the necklace to bring up a menu for changing the texture or resizing.

Ah well… naptime is over. Until next time!

I’ve Got the Music in Me

I've Got the Music in Me

A Retro Vibe

Sometimes the perfect outfit feels just as good a listening to your favorite song. And that’s exactly how I feel in this beautiful, vintage dress from Ghee!

The Polkadot Halter Dress comes with a 4-color texture-change HUD and is sized for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink mesh bodies, as well as standard mesh XXS-L with an alpha. I think the pretty orchid corsage really pulls the whole outfit together. 🙂

My earrings are the latest group gift from CHAIN. I neglected to get a close-up photo (you can click the photo to enlarge on Flickr), but I can tell you that they are pretty hoops, and they come with a HUD that includes 8 metal textures. When I first put them on they were quite large, but if you click the earrings, you’ll get a resizer menu to make them smaller.

To Tell the Truth

Like many of you, I have an inventory full of hair, and I just can’t bring myself to delete any of it. Though it’s an older style, I put on the Sassy 2 ‘do from TRUTH HAIR because I thought the classic look would go well with my dress.

I decided to pop over to the TRUTH main store to see if the style is even still available, and guess what? Not only is it available, but it is only 50L in the discount room! That’s right: there’s an entire room full of hairs that are just 50L each. Be sure to stop by and take a look; it’s a great place to pick up some really well-made hair at a very reasonable price.

Have a fabulous rest of your day! 😀
