Rock Your October 1st

Spooky

Hello Fabulouses!  So, I have to admit it……I went to the Rock Your Rack Event meaning to try my luck in the hunt taking place.  And, really, I did pick up a number of prizes there that I am itching to blog, BUT, when I entered the Pretty Kitty Design booth and spotted the Miyako Gacha display, I just knew I had to try to pick up a few of the pieces of this outfit.  Since today is October 1st and all, I decided to follow Aline’s example and step into the Halloween side of life.

She Was Unstoppable

On the first try, I was surprised to see the rare red headpiece pop up as an inventory offer.  I took that as a good sign, and from that point, I kept playing and collecting (and playing and collecting).  For just 50L a try, it was fairly budget friendly, and it actually didn’t take too long to get the whole outfit.  You can mix and match the pieces with other items from your wardrobe, so there’s no need to go all ham on the gacha machine like I did 😉 .  The Miyako headpiece features black horns rimmed with gold spirals, white pearl embellishments, and red stars dangling from silvery chains.  The curve-hugging top is trimmed with a pretty string bow at the neckline and has semi opaque ruffles.  While the black outer portion matches the horns, the patterned center section echos the crimson hue of the stars.  Also trimmed with string bows, the asymmetrical skirt has a short flirty hem in front and a longer back section.  The part of the outfit that took the longest to get were the shoes, but I have to say, they were worth the wait.  Sexy, thigh-high stockings, criss crossed with bright red lacing and a unique high heel platform (without the heel piece) provide just the right finishing touch.  Each piece in the outfit costs just 50 Linden dollars.

A Perfectly Spooky Pose

To set off the Miyako outfit, not just any pose would do.  Luckily for me, a group notice popped up on my screen advertising a 1L special over at ENII Poses.  I opened the texture, then excitedly teleported to the shop.  This was just what I had in mind!  Not only do you get the pose for a special price, the generous designer also included the backdrop you see in my photo and the ultra creepy skull in my hand.  Ripley took one look at the scary pumpkin backdrop and high tailed it over to Stan and begged for a walk to anywhere far, far away.  The poor guy!  I had to rez the backdrop and pose ball, so you will need a sim where you can set items out in order to use all the items included.  The poseball itself can be copied, so I also could have rezzed it, opened it up, and removed the pose to use with a different background.  It’s a great deal for just 1 little Linden dollar!

Well, I hear the jingle of the pupster’s collar tags as he and Stan are arriving back home, so I’d better whisk the scary orange monster up and tuck it safely away in the black hole that is my inventory.   Until next time, happy shopping!

Fab Free Designer Friday – 11/11/2016 – Pretty Kitty Design

Pretty Kitty DesignWelcome Fab Free’rs! It’s that time of the week again where we get to talk about one of our Fabulous Fab Free Designers. This Friday’s featured designer is Pretty Kitty Design. You will not want to miss the colorful experience that is Pretty Kitty Design.  At Pretty Kitty Design you’ll mostly find a wide variety of formal and casual ladies mesh clothing, with a few men’s items sprinkled in. There are also a few seasonal decor items, KittyCats items, and additional clothing items upstairs. Throughout the Pretty Kitty Design store there are several opportunities to score fantastic freebies. On the desk pictured above you’ll see several of the FREE group gifts available, including the Fab Free exclusive group gift which was previously blogged here. The Fab Free group is of course always FREE to join, and you’ll be glad to know the Pretty Kitty Design group is FREE to join as well.
Lucky Letter BoardsBehind the desk near the landing point at Pretty Kitty Design shoppers will find several gacha machines, and two Lucky Letter Boards. There’s a group only board, and a FREE for everyone board. Both Lucky Letter Boards seem to have rotating gifts, so the gift changes when the letter does. Also, you can even get a gift just for being in the Pretty Kitty Design store! There is a random gift giver in the store that will randomly send a gift to customers while they shop.
ARCTIC Tech Info 2One of the most unique things about Pretty Kitty Design is the inclusion of ARCTIC Technology.  The above photo is of the demo area for ARCTIC Technology located to the right of the circulation desk at Pretty Kitty Design. ARCTIC Technology is a creative alternative way to color customize your Pretty Kitty Design items. The in-world demo area shown goes into great detail about how the ARCTIC Technology works, and will even let you physically see the system in action without having to purchase anything.
