Remembering Pool Halls

Pool Shark

It’s been a while.

It’s been a while since I played pool. I miss those days. There isn’t a pool hall in my little town, and I’d have to drive a long distance to find one now. The atmosphere has changed as well. Pool tables are something you find only in bars where I live. When I was in college you could go to pool halls just to play pool, and they were places that were fairly neutral and welcome to all sorts of people.

I found Warehouse 999 and it made me remember a bit of the old days of pool halls. It’s a club that caters to both military (and non military) music lovers, with a pool table in the background. There’s a lot of quaint memorabilia up and if you like the blues, stop by for a listen.

Grabbing the right outfit.

FA Creations has out a great free December group gift… this Yuki outfit. The jacket includes a texture change hud with 6 possible choices and the outfit is made for both standard or mesh bodies. You’ll get the pants as well as the top and jacket as separates.

In the gift you’ll get sizes to fit:

  • Standard mesh sizes XS – XL
  • Fitmesh Sizes XS – XL
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • TMP
  • Belleza

Top it off.

I needed a finishing touch and found just what I was looking for in the Women Only Hunt 2. I picked up this free mesh rigged metal choker in gold at Secrets. This choker is pretty special in that it doesn’t clip. The mesh rigging lets it move with your neck so there is no issue of it cutting out the side of your neck with your avatar’s ao. I really like that. Plus its really stylish. Perfect for playing pool.

Crazy Crazy Cat Lady

Meow, FabFree-ers!

Crazy Crazy Cat Lady

As y’all might remember, I’m a crazy cat lady in RL. So I’m wondering if Nani Poses put this ‘Crazy Cat Lady’ Gacha out at the OMGacha Fair just for me! This is one of two different rares on the ten pose machine and I was lucky enough to pull it.  Each pose comes with it’s own cat or collection of cats. The nice thing is it’s only 50L per play so… I admit… I played a bunch.

Just a machine or two down… I found these adorable ‘Kitty Ear Stretcher’ earrings from Secrets. There are ten common colors in both silver and black and four rares. The earring comes with a resize script so if you don’t fancy the ‘stretcher’ look you can resize it down to look more like a regular earring. I sized mine up to fit my already stretched lobes.

So now I knew I needed to do a “cat crazy” post and 1313 Mockingbird Lane supplied more inspiration with these fantastic ‘Crazy Cat Lady Slippurs’. These cuties are Belleza and Maitreya Mesh body compatible as well as compatible with the system feet and SLink flat feet.

The I saw Toxic High’s ‘Hold a Kitty’ gacha and well, who doesn’t want to hold a kitty? I picked up ‘Gothic Kitty’ to cuddle with for only 35L per play.

I still wasn’t done with OMGacha…. My new hair style is from Doe and it’s called Bryn. I pulled the solid colored style but it also comes in a double color version. The machine is 75L to play. I’d never had a hair from Doe and I have to say I’m very impressed with the color and the build.

But there’s still not enough cats in this post! So I headed over to the Marketplace and found the ‘My Little Kitty’ set from Stressless for only 2L. The set comes with the purple dress and a set of purple heels for SLink High Feet if you want to wear it as an “out and about” outfit. I am choosing to wear it more like lounge wear so I added the purple ‘Knitted Leggings’ from Enai, also from the Marketplace, for 1 little Linden.

Whew… that’s a bunch of kitties… I think my KittyCats Nox and Flurry are getting jealous……

Kicking that School Daze

school_final

Kick those school desks out of the way and block the door so the teacher can’t come in so you can PAR-TAY! The School Daze Hunt is still going on until September 28 and some amazing school themed freebies are up for grabs. The gift from (#1) Nocturnal Needs is a set of classroom furniture which includes a teacher’s desk with chair, a real chalkboard you can write on, and copyable student desks that are LOADED with lots of fun animations like dances. Love is busting a move in the exclusive cheerleader outfit from (#20) Secret’s which includes the sneakers and pom poms.

My Back to School outfit is a combination of gifts. You can find the mesh jacket and jeans at (#24) Destiny’s Designs, the boots from (#22) Ziva’s Underground Footware, and the accessories from (#23) Suki’s Silken Fashions. The books and apple on the desk are a tip jar from (#15) Club Staff University.

I thought they said modeling academy was going to be easy! I’m balancing these books on my head from (#18) Eat My Prims. My outfit is from (#9) Dot-Be Fashion and includes the mesh shirt and mesh jeans. My black mesh bolt shoes are by DECO and can be found at The Arcade Gacha Event. It’s 50L a play for a chance to get 1 of 10 colors.
