Through Anything

Through Anything

No matter what, my guy and I can make it through anything. Through thick and through thin, through the crashing of planes, the exploding of bombs, a new world regime! Anything at all could happen, and we’d come out on top, and look awesome while doing so. Okay, I admit that was a bit dramatic, but thanks to Second Life we can live through our stories. Thanks to Contraption, DRD, and Birth, we can look the part too!

I do love it when Blue and I find unique, whimsical, and otherwise outside the ordinary items inexpensively or better yet for free in Second Life.  Keep reading for info about each of these fantastic group gifts, and peep the full list of credits and links at the end. Then you can go on your own adventures.

Contraption

The foundation of my look for this post, and Blue’s, is this amazing jacket by Contraption. Not only is it highly detailed, it comes sized to fit both male and female avatars. It also includes a hud that allows you to change the metallic embellishments to gold or silver. This special edition version of the “Atreus Waistcoat” is free to all Le’Homme group members for the month of February. The Le’Homme Magazine group is free to join. You’ll find this cool gift waiting for you at Contraption behind the desk.

Sizes Included: Belleza Jake, Signature Gianni, Slink Physique Male, Slink Hourglass, Maitreya Lara (+Flat Chest Size), Belleza Freya

L'HOMME FEB 2020 GROUP GIFT: Atreus Waistcoat *MACHINA* edition

DRD

Death Row Designs aka DRD recently put out this cool as hell unisex cap as a free group gift. I love all the individual patches that add the detail of this hat. It comes in black, and navy blue. It’s able to be resized, and can be worn by male and female avatars. To get yours, you’ll need to join the free-to-join Death Row Designs group and click the gift vendor while wearing your group tag.

Have a Holly Jolly Christmas

Jolly Christmas

In all the hustle and bustle of the holidays, one of my favorite things is decorating outdoors. There’s something magical about all the lights and colorful décor. That being said, when you’re not exactly tall, the right shoes can be a big help when hanging lights and wreathes. These shoes by Utopia are perfect for hanging lights, and reaching the top of the Christmas tree. They also happen to be one of the many free gifts out at FaMESHed. I also happen to think they look quite well with the FaMESHed group gift sweater by RIOT. Keep reading for details about each of these gifts that helped create this festive holiday look.

Utopia

These boots. The moment I saw them I thought ooo these look like super hero boots! And I mean that in the most endearing way. I love them, and could only ever pull them off here in Second Life. They are Utopia’s free gift at FaMESHed. To get your copy you’ll need to be in the free-to-join FaMESHed event group. Then click the giftbox outside the Utopia booth at FaMESHed while wearing your group tag.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), Slink (Hourglass, Physique)

RIOT

RIOT also has a FaMESHed group gift out, which is of course free. The RIOT gift is really 2 gifts however, in that there is a Jane sweater for the ladies, and Jasper sweater for the gentlemen. Both sweaters come in red or green with several size choices. Don’t forget your FaMESHed group tag.

Women’s Sizes (Jane Sweater): Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Freya, Isis), Legacy, Slink Hourglass

The mountains are calling

The Mountains are Calling

While Juli is tearing her hair out hunting ghosts at Spookzilla… I went for a relaxing hike. Don’t worry, I’ll have to do my time at Spookzilla, but not today. Today is just me and the dog and the mountains.

And what, you may ask has me in this nature and hiking mood? It’s the shirt. My warm plaid shirt is the current free Group Gift from FKD. It just screamed hikes and camp fires and time away from civilization. So I followed the call.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Jake
  • Signiture – Gianni

There is Magic in the Air


There's Magic in the Air

There’s magic in the air this time of year. It’s when I feel most in my element. Having someone to share it with makes it even better! A recent free group gift at b[ELLE] is perfect for getting into the spirit of the season. It has a full outfit for the guys, and a cute dress with bat wings (not shown) for the ladies. The b[ELLE] group is free to join, and there are quite a few free group gifts available. For more info on each of the outfits included in this spook-tacular gift just keep reading. Otherwise, scroll down for full credits. Thanks for being here!

B[ELLE] Group Gift – Ladies Outfit

This halter style dress is every bit as cute on as it looks. I have to say I felt a little bit like Betty Rubble dressed in her Halloween frock. It comes in several sizes including sizes and an alpha layer for classic avatars. There’s a color change hud as well with 3 color choices for the dress, and 3 similar color choices for the men’s shirt. Also included are an adorable pair of bat wings which I chose to not wear.

Dress Sizes Included: Standard Mesh (small, large) + Alpha, eBody, Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Maitreya Lara

B[ELLE] Group Gift – Men’s Outfit

The men’s outfit part of the free gift includes the casual shirt and matching pants. I like the fact that the print is just on the front of the shirt. I think it keeps it from being too busy. It’s really perfect for the season. The same hud that is used for the dress also works for this shirt. The jeans and shirt come in several sizes, and there is an alpha layer for both so this outfit is suitable for classic avatars.

Shirt Sizes Included: Standard Mesh (small, medium, large) +Alpha, Belleza Jake, Signature (Gianni, Geralt), Slink
Jean Sizes Included: Fitmesh + Alpha, Belleza Jake, Signature Gianni, Slink

P.S. The hat Blue has on is also free! You can hunt it down at Horr. It’s their free Demons and Heathens Hunt prize. “I can see the alley from here.”

Did You Hear That?


Did You Hear That

Friday the 13th is the perfect day to go camping, right? Surely nothing sinister would happen… I can just hear the iconic “something bad is about to happen” music starting to play! I love a classic horror flick, so when Blue showed me these Camp Crystal Lake tees by ZFG (Zero F*cks Given) I had to share them with you; today being Friday the 13th is just the icing on the cake.

The matching his and hers shirts are the free Twisted Hunt prize at ZFG. When hunting be wary of the decoy boxes the Twisted Hunt is famous for. The Twisted Hunt runs through the end of the month, so you have some time to get things figured out. There are no hints either, so I can’t help you there. To get yours, you’ll have to head over to ZFG and hunt it down! The male and female version are in the same box.

Men’s Shirt Sizes: Aesthetic, Belleza Jake, Signature (Geralt, Gianni), Slink, Standard Mesh (xs – XL) + Alpha Layer

Women’s Shirt Sizes: Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Maitreya Lara, Tonic (Curvy, Fine), TMP, Standard Mesh (xs – XL) + Alpha Layer

Here’s What Blue Has On:

Hair – Vango – Owen
Head – Akeruka – Clay
Skin – 7Deadly Skins – Earth – Caramel
Shirt – ZFG (Zero F*cks Given) – Camp Crystal Lake – Free Twisted Hunt Prize
Pants – Wilson’s Designs – Jeans – 1L *Part of the For Him Hunt Prize
Shoes – Native Urban – Enhanced Boots – Marketplace
Body – Belleza Jake

Here’s What I Have On:

Hair – TRUTH – Aislin
Head – Catwa Koura
Skin – Essences – Sibyl
Shirt – ZFG (Zero F*cks Given) – Camp Crystal Lake – Free Twisted Hunt Prize
Shorts – Oubliette – Cross Neo Witch Shorts

Time is Fleeting

It's About Time

This is going to be fast one from me. I wanted to make a ‘quickie’ joke but Julianna forbid it. So I didn’t.  At any rate, this is the last twenty four hours of the Star Spangled Hunt put on by Sweet Intoxication. So if you want any of the 1L prizes, you’ll need to hurry.

About Time

This is the Tygren Shirt with the “Time Rose” pattern. It is the gentlemen’s prize on the very first stop on the Hunt: at Sweet Intoxication. I am rather impressed with the old school vintage tattoo look of the design and I foresee wearing it often. As I said, if you want to pick up this excellent shirt for yourself you need to hurry along before the Hunt ends tomorrow.

Sizes Included

  • Adam
  • Aestheti
  • Belleza Jake
  • Classic Mesh – S-L
  • Signature – Geralt, Gianni
  • SLink
  • TMP

Horsing Around


Horsing Around

We are closing in on mid-week and I think it’s time to take some down time, and maybe play a little HORSE. For this post I picked up the Beached Bunny Hunt 9 prize at Freda, and my handsome guy picked up the July group gift at R2A. I think we look great on the court in our red and black. I also picked up this cute pose for just 15 linden on the Marketplace. Keep reading for all the what, where, and how.

Freda Beached Bunny Hunt 9 Prize –

My top and matching shorts are the BBH9 prize at Freda. They are cute as can be, and can be worn together or separate. The BBH9 is a dollarbie hunt meaning all prizes are just 1 linden. The hunt will run through the end of the month, so you’ve got a little time to hunt down this outfit at Freda. The outfit comes in the following sizes: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Ocacin, Voluptuous, and a “Classic Model Size M.” No alpha layer is included however. You’ll be looking for a beach pail full of sand.

Hint – Do not spread all that sand over the work table when picking your gift!

R2A July Group Gift –

The top and matching athletic shorts Blue has on are the free July group gift at R2A. This gift comes with a color change hud for some customization. It also happens to come in quite a few sizes, including some sizes for child/teen avatars. The following sizes are included with this free group gift at R2A: Signature Gianni, Adam, Aesthetic, Belleza Jake, Nx – David, Tweenster, Toddledoo. The R2A group is also free to join at this time.

Vetro Poses Basketball Pose – 

Vetro Poses has quite a few inexpensive poses available on the Marketplace. I picked up their “Couple Playing Basketball 02” pose for just 15 linden on the Marketplace. This pose includes the his and hers poses, along with a basketball, and the option to have a basketball goal (not shown) included with the pose. I wanted to use a different basketball with this pose, so it was derendered and a different ball put in its place.
