Instant Hair Crush

Exile1L
Like Falling Autumn Leaves

You know what else falls this Autumn?  The price on the brand new Bento Instant Crush Hairstyle by Exile in their marketplace store – all the way down to 1L!  Their usual “all or nothing pack” price is 1250, so this is a really sweet savings.  This long pulled back hairstyle with side swept bangs includes a bento version as well as ALL the colour pack HUDS!

To Swish Or Not To Swish

The bento version is actually a lot of fun to watch swishing and moving around with my avatar, although if you prefer no movement, the regular hair is included as well.

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!

Sometimes It’s Better In SL

Snapshot_003
Hello there Fabulous Readers 🙂 What do you think of my painting?  In real life, I love art but unfortunately I am just not very good at it.  In Second Life, I’m practically a pro as you can see.  In fact, I can do a lot of things better in Second Life like dancing, wearing stilettos, dancing while wearing stilettos, flying airplanes and dressing myself for free!

Never in real life do I get so lucky as to come across a pair of adorable overalls with a top as a free gift for joining a group.  It just doesn’t happen.  It totally should 🙂

Anyways About The Outfit…

You can find this overall and top outfit set called Nell Overalls as a free group gift at Moolala.  It comes as one piece (top and pants together) in a handful of mesh sizes with an alpha layer and a HUD that allows you to  make a few changes to the denim colour, as well as several colours for the dotty tank top.  The Moolala inworld group is 25L to join.

By the Sea

By the Sea_003

Sometimes I prefer to browse the Marketplace for goodies when I’m in that “stay at home” mood. I found a couple of nice Marketplace gifties that are sure to brighten your day. Once I was ready to explore, I finished off with a group gift from one of my favorite Steampunk stores!

The perfect outfit

In doing a little Marketplace hunting I ran across this ZHO outfit by Petry Shop. It includes a shirt and skirt as separate pieces with nice detailing and great geometric textures! For only 20L, I snapped it up and didn’t have to leave my linden home. 🙂

Outfit sizes included:

  • Standard mesh sizes XS – L
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique

Strike a pose

I also picked up a gift pose from a little Marketplace store called Naomi Shop. This pose, called Naomi Gift Pose, is perfect for photography, and is just 10 little linden. If you take pictures in Second Life, you’ll want to add it to your inventory!

My pretty seahorse necklace is a free group gift by Pixel Box. You join the Pixel Box group free, don your new group tag, and pick up this pretty necklace. It includes a texture change hud, which I’ve included a picture of below so you can see the variety of choices you have!

As an extra special touch, the necklace is mesh body sized, and includes sizes to fit the following mesh body types: TMP, eBody, Maitreya, Eve (Slim & Pulpy), Belleza (Freya, Isis, & Venus), Slink (Hourglass & Physique), and Tonic.

Standing Idly By

Snapshot_004Hey there Fabulouses!  Not only did I come to you today with a couple of Fabulously Free in SL group gift updates, but I have also put together a little post with a sweet 10L dress, some very sexy strappy heels I found as a group gift and just for the heck of it…  I used a group gift pose too!

Where’s My Feather Duster?

This black dress is trimmed in a lacy texture that (I think) gives it a little bit of a sexy French maid look to it and you can find it in the VEO marketplace store for just 10L in one mesh Maitreya Lara Body size.  There is also a cute yellow lingerie set for 10L offered by the same designer, so if you happen to have another 10L – that’s a great use for it!

Strappy Heels

Are you strapped for cash, but need some new shoes?  N-Core has a new group gift out called CLARA Strappy Edition in both black and nude colours right now.  If I read right…  they will be releasing more colours of these sexy babies on Fridays.  I am not sure how many Fridays they will be doing this, but it seems like a great way to collect a free fatpack!  This group is currently 199L to join.

Onto The Pose…

Yes!  That coy, leaned against the wall pose is a free group gift in a three pack called [idle] pose set.  You can pick this group gift up with your free group join at West End.  I have added the vendor ad below so you can see all three poses.

A Little Love

A Little Love

A little love…

Love is usually Love’s territory… but when I spied this little Love tattoo by QuatreTTocs on the marketplace I couldn’t resist it! It’s a mere 49L and it’s the cutest thing. It’s not over the top and its a nice addition to any outfit. When you purchase it, you’ll get an applier for Maitreya mesh bodies as well as an Omega applier.

That perfect skirt

I hadn’t been to Entice for a while and when I stopped by yesterday, I realized there were all sorts of new gifts out that I hadn’t caught up on! My favorite was this free West End Girls Skirt. It’s just a skirt right? But its the perfect skirt! At least I think so. I paired it with a pretty white top that I had picked up while shopping at JellyRoll the other day.

Skirt sizes available:

  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Peace & More Mojitos

Snapshot_013
Hey there Fabulouses!

This is a short and sweet post today, but I wanted to make sure I stopped in to tell you about a couple of FabFree worthy items I found – one a dollarbie on marketplace and the other a fun group gift!

My Favourite Colour!!!

I feel like I have been showing a ton of swimwear lately, and well I guess it is the season, but I found another fabulous 2pc swimsuit called Scandal you should know about.  It’s in my favourite colour (blue!), and is so pretty with the ruffled top and strappy boycut bottoms.  This set is available for just 1L in the Dusti’s Odds n Ends Marketplace Store!

Sizes included:

  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Belleza
  • Werewolf

More Mojitos

I can’t believe that I am holding a mojito in my hand again so soon after my wild ride of a girls night with Pru [HERE] and then ugh [HERE], but the new Preocupada Bento Pose by Reel Poses that comes with the floatie and bevvie is the latest group gift, and inspired me to give it another go.  The group is just 30L to join.

PEACE!

Got Your Goat

Huck Thought He Was a Dog

When I was a child I had a goat (I lived on a farm) that thought it was my dog. It followed me everywhere. I wanted a dog pretty badly then and wasn’t yet allowed to have one. So that goat was my favorite animal on the farm. At least until he grew horns and began to butt me! So I couldn’t help be enchanted by these little goats I ran across on this quaint little sim.

Speaking of quaint…

When was the last time you visited Snowpaws? They have a roomful of group gifts and free no group required Lucky Letter Boards and Mini Mania Boards. I won my outfit off one of the free Mini Mania Boards after slapping them all! And I came away with several new free outfits from the free Lucky Letter Boards as well. There are so many goodies to be had there! My outfit is fully mesh and comes in all the standard mesh sizes.

Paired off.

I paired my new outfit with a pretty blue drop necklace from BricOle’s off the marketplace for only 30L. If you like this piece you might like some of their other items. Be sure to check out their online store for low price/high quality jewelry. I did discover that when I put the necklace on, I had to click the pendant and size it up (size up this prim only) to make it meet the black cord. But that was an easy fix to get such a pretty necklace at a such a deal.

Backside

Snapshot_001In my days as a skateboarder, they used to call me “Backside” because the 180 backside was my best trick…  Ok…  truth be told, I had no tricks and they called me “Backside” because that’s where I always landed in attempts.  These fun skater poses by [west end] are currently being featured at The Cosmopolitan Sales Room and reminded me of the fun I used to have “trying to skateboard”!
