On the Boardwalk

Boardwalk_001

A certain someone said she can’t do anything before she’s had her coffee, and to prove it she was at a coffee shop with her freebie finds. While coffee is the perfect morning drink, a sunset is the perfect evening elixir… that’s why I’m out here on the boardwalk enjoying an evening out with my own fashion finds.

Amazing!

These pants by Amazing Creations are worth the free group space they will cost you, because that’s all they will cost you. Yup! Free. There’s also several other free men’s gifts in the group gift vendor that you can pick up while you are there at the store. Ladies, don’t worry, you’re not left out… there’s gifts there for you as well.

Available pants sizes:

  • Adam
  • Aesthetic
  • Belleza
  • Classic S – XL
  • Gianni
  • Slink
  • TMP

Why I’m here…

You might remember a certain post in which I mentioned my life sentence to this blog… it’s where I picked up a fashionable group gift. If that gift wasn’t your style, then perhaps the men’s flip flops in the picture above will be more to your taste. They come with a color change hud and to pick them up free, all you need is a group space for the free to join DuFaux group at the DuFaux main-store.

These shoes come in sizes to fit several types of men’s mesh feet:

  • Aesthetic
  • Belleza
  • Gianni
  • Slink
  • TMP

One more stop:

My bracelets are a free to all gift at Chop Zuey. Just buy them for 0L; you don’t even need to join a group. You can get them in the black version if you join the VIP group (that will set you back 350L) but this blue version is absolutely free and is resizable on touch.

I’m off to enjoy the sunset and perhaps do some surfing. Evenings are good!

Your Own Underdark!

In the dark_001

Your own Underdark…

It’s not often you get the chance to own your own Underdark, especially for the price of just 1L. Zyn is offering their Mini Underdark Skybox on the Marketplace for just that! 1L and it’s yours. It’s only 47 prim and it’s rather detailed, with multiple cavern rooms, a water pool, stalagmites and stalactites, mushrooms, lanterns, and more. The picture above is taken in part of one of the detailed caverns!

Ahhhh roleplay…

Roleplay is one of those fantastic past-times in Second Life and it’s always fabulous when you can come across some great gifts to add to your wardrobe. I stopped by the Menstuff lounge and there is a large assortment of menswear currently out that you can pick up for your one-time fee of 50L to the Menstuff group. Among the items was this “Morris” outfit. It’s really just a regular every day outfit, but since it doesn’t have any zippers and with the right accessories, I managed to turn it into a medieval one! It comes in a variety of mesh body sizes.

Outfit sizes available:

  • Classic XS-XL + alpha
  • Belleza
  • Gianni
  • Slink
  • TMP
  • Aesthetic

The details make the man

It’s the details that make this outfit work as a roleplay outfit. I stopped by Noble Creations and picked up some “details” to make this into a roleplay creation. The Noble Creations group is free to join and these gifts were free to pick up. I picked up the Prince in Leather neck piece to add over the top of the Morris shirt. I also picked up the Medici Pouch belt to add to my waist. Take note… this belt fit a little funny at first. I had to edit it to my shape, but it comes with a handy resizer that allows for resizing on all axises separately for a perfect fit!

The L’Homme Gift.

I think the L’Homme group gift from Noble Creations really makes this outfit. It’s a set of horned Bracers and Pauldrons that really stand out. You could add some weapons to this outfit to complete your look. Perhaps a shield and an axe or a sword and you’d be ready to go warrior! As always, the L’Homme group is free to join so this gift is free as well!

Happy roleplaying!

Be Cheeky!

Lucky_001

Be Cheeky!

The Finders Keepers Hunt has turned out to be an amazing hunt with some real gems of gifts that the FabFree bloggers have shown off for all of you amazing readers! I noticed that one of my favorite stores, Vision, was on the list, and stopped by to hunt down their gift to see what it was. Pictured above is the free gift – a white waist pants set with a really cheeky top that tells you to “Go Luck Yourself.”

It made me think of Pru who recently blogged about taking your demon to the beach 😀 I’m always excited to see Pru’s posts because she invariably blogs something unique and cheeky that I think I could never pull off! But I think I managed to pull off this one from Vision! Hunt down the pot of gold, and you can be cheeky too! Just be sure to do it before the end of the day on March 24th, because that’s when the hunt ends!

The pants and top come separately and in several sizes:

  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Freya
  • Isis

Lucky_002

As I mentioned in my post [here] there are various perks to being a member of the Vision VIP group. Your one-time fee of 250L gets you an in-store credit of 100L on the first of every month plus access to four lucky letter boards (they change out each month too).

When I picked up my in-store credit this month, my letter happened to be up on one of the lucky letter boards and I grabbed the Moly top! The top is in this lovely Salmon color, but includes a color change hud for the ruffles around the hem. You could make the ruffle white to match the waist pants. Either way, this top goes lovely with the free Finders Keepers waist pants!

Moly Shirt sizes available:

  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Freya
  • Isis

Taking time for some r.e.l.a.x.a.t.i.o.n.

Poolside_001

All this hunting for treasure has me WORN OUT! So I decided to head to a resort for some r.e.l.a.x.a.t.i.o.n. I noticed I wasn’t the only one who thinks hunts are both great and evil at the same time. Aline was mentioning it in her post where she sported some great Finders Keepers hunt gifts. For me, the worst part is all those boxes scattered all over the floor of my Second Life house as I try to unpack everything. Wowzer! At least I unpacked a couple of resort worthy items sure to make relaxing at the poolside worth hunting down my freebies!

A new shirt.

Hey don’t worry if pink’s not your style! This shirt from Get Jiggy! has you covered with an amazing color hud.

You’ll get:

  • 13 colors to choose from for the outside of the shirt
  • 13 colors to choose from for the inside of the shirt
  • 13 colors to choose from for the cuffs

and you can change those separately. The shirt only comes in standard sizes, but I had no problem fitting it to my Jake body by using the alphas. I also tried it on my Slink body and it fit that body just fine too! This Vintage Polo shirt is a free group gift with your free to join group at Get Jiggy!

New Pants too!

While you’re at Get Jiggy! be sure to hunt down the Glam or Grunge hunt gift. It will only cost you 1L, and you’ll be getting a great pair of cargo capris. Just like the shirt, these pants come with an outstanding selection of color with the color change hud.

  • 5 colors for the pants
  • 5 colors for the front pockets
  • 5 colors for the side pockets
  • 5 colors for the back pockets
  • 6 colors for the belt
  • 5 metal choices

Absolutely Mint

Absolutely Mint

I have a love-hate relationship with hunts in SL.  They can be really fun, and you can find a million fantastic prizes, and you are all happy and joyful and such.  Then there are the ones that are gruelling, painful affairs where every prize is impossible to find and you go cross-eyed just thinking about it!

The Finders Keepers hunt was actually the former experience – I found things without going completely cross-eyed, and I even made some new friends along the way who banded with me to find all the stuff.  And of course, I got some fun free gifts!  Win-win!

Here’s what I picked up on the hunt:

  • FREE Mint latex pants from Yasum (Sized for Maitreya)
  • FREE Super high platforms from Moda (Sized for Maitreya, Belleza and Slink with loads of colours to choose from in the HUD)
  • FREE Tousled hair by Olive (I managed to use the HUD match the pants! Bonus! There’s also another style in the box too!)

I had a great time on the hunt (So did Love, Astrid and Serena, as you can see…), and I think you’ll enjoy it too!

What’s in a cemetery?

Graveyard Presence_001

“What could you possibly hope to find in a cemetery?” The women said. “The dead tell no secrets and the living seldom come to visit them.”
― Felix Alexander, The Last Valentine

Many of my characters have roleplayed in cemeteries for various reasons. There is mystery and intrigue there. There is always a story to be had in a cemetery! Or someone’s story at least. When I put this roleplay outfit together for you, I immediately though… cemetery! And went to take a picture. But enough of the roleplay memories and onto the gifts!

Stop by for a treat!

Bluemoon Enterprise has out a great free roleplay outfit for February. Be sure to pick it up before the month is out. You’ll need the free to join Bluemoon group tag to pick it up. This Celtic Breeze outfit includes the pants, a skirt, the bracers, the top and the hood. The hood has a feature that allows you to wear it either up or down (I choose to wear the hood down) and the outfit comes in a single fitmesh size that I had no trouble making fit my Maitreya body.

Bluemoon Enterprise is housed inside of The White Armory. When you arrive at the entrance, go inside and then head to the Bluemoon store inside the large main-store building of The White Armory. You’ll find the Celtic Breeze gift inside of the smaller Bluemoon Building.

Another YM Gift

I showed you a group gift from the YM Shop in my post [Here] but there were so many on the wall that I picked up more than one. Among the free gifts I picked up with my free group join were the Beka boots. I discovered that these boots, although certainly suitable for modern wear, had a definite roleplay feel, and paired with my roleplay outfit from Bluemoon just perfectly.

  • These boots include a color change hud to change 4 different parts of the boots with 46 color options for each as well as 4 metal options for the rivets.
  • Sizes include: Slink Physique, Slink Hourglass, Mesh XXS – L

I hope you enjoy these gifts and happy roleplaying!

New-to-me!

A Happy Ride_002

I remember once watching a film called “The Red Balloon.” In it, a child’s best friend was a little red balloon that seemed to have human like qualities. It was an artsy film that left quite an impression on me, and when I found this bike floating upward with balloons attached, I knew I had to take a picture…

But onward to the freebies. I have a few special ones for you today as two of them are from a new-to-me store.

New-to-me

I happened upon Sinfully Sweet and discovered that you can join the group at the store fore free and that will give you access to the Midnight Madness board and three lucky letter boards. I snagged my cute top on the Midnight Madness board, and when my letter came up, snagged the shorts.

Plenty of options… the shirt came in a variety of mesh body sizes and included a hud with multiple texture change options. The shorts came in several types of applier layers. Both were completely free with my free to join store group tag.

Here’s the catch… the Midnight Madness board at Sinfully Sweet seems to change out with a new prize daily, so you won’t find this shirt there today (or tomorrow either) but there will be a new prize each day! That’s kind of nice actually! Also, the lucky letter boards rotate as the letters change with different prizes as well. So as the letters change, different prizes will pop up on the three boards also.

New Hair too

I love stopping by KoKoLoReS each month to pick up the monthly group gift. I missed showing off January’s lovely group gift (but it was there I promise you!) but I didn’t want to miss showing you February’s, which just came out! It’s this cute ponytail braid with the loops at the end, and includes a color change hud of natural colors. It’s rigged mesh and pretty as can be. The group costs 250L to join, but remember, you’ll be getting a gift every single month to make up for that one-time fee!

Gun-Slinger

Guard Duty_002

Annie Oakley

This isn’t the wild west but this outfit made me think of Annie Oakley who sort of paved the way for women to gain prowess with their own shooting skills. One of her more popular quotes (according to google) is: “There are always women who will take men on their own terms. If I were a man I wouldn’t bother to change while there are women like that around.” I had to stop and wonder a moment if she meant that they shouldn’t bother to change clothes… but maybe that is just me being silly 😛

Where to get the Digs

At any rate, you will find this great all-in-one outfit at SA Quartermaster, gun included, for many different mesh bodies. It comes in all one piece so nothing is detachable, and it does not include the boots. You do get a color change hud with four different colors of red, including a camouflage red color. This gift is completely free as part of the Cupid’s Conspiracy Hunt going on right now.

Mesh Size Compatibility:

  • Classic Mesh XS – L
  • TMP
  • Maitreya
  • Tonic – Fine & Curvy
  • Slink – Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Super Nova

Solar_001

I love checking out the view at Inspire Space Park. And I found the perfect outfit for visiting. I picked it up free as part of the Hunt for Your Inner Slut Hunt by stopping by OMG! Inc. and hunting down that iconic … ahem… symbol. (Let’s keep things PG 13, why don’t we?) My Supernova outfit includes the shiny black leather pants and the purple top (the pieces are separate so you can mix and match if you want) with the plunging neckline and the splash of stars that sheen over the material. It comes in all your favorite sizes.

Outfit sizes available:

  • Standard sizes XS – XL
  • eBody
  • TMP
  • Ocacin
  • Tonic – Fine & Curvy
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Raise a brow

I like little details and since I was feeling out of this world, I decided to add some glittery eyebrows to my features. I found these purple ones by alaskametro on the Marketplace for just 75L. These are Catwa head appliers and you’ll get 6 colors.

Glitter Eyebrow Colors Included:

  • Silver
  • Red
  • Purple
  • Green
  • Blue
  • Pink

Something Solar

I also stopped by The Forge, because I like their in-store gachas, and gave the Aura necklace gacha a spin. I got lucky and landed the Ultra Rare on the first spin! I was super happy to show off the gold and and white necklace with my outfit. For just 50L a spin though, all the necklaces are beautiful! And they are modifiable to fit any neck size 🙂
