Not Just Another Fantasy

Not Just Another Fantasy

Halloween is the perfect time to fill out your fantasy wardrobe… and 7 Deadly s{K}ins is making that a little easier this month with two excellent fantasy skins as their group gifts. You first saw the Ladies gift shown off [HERE] by Sheidey. But the men were not left out this month.

If you are a group member (the group fee is 150L) you can pick up the men’s gift at 7 Deadly s{K}ins in the fantasy tone shown above. It includes 3 versions… a clean face and 2 different white bearded versions, each with different brow options. Included in the package are appliers for slink hands and feet as well as the slink body appliers and omega appliers as well. Be sure to hit “accept” when you see all the pop ups, as the omega package does come separately from the slink package. You don’t want to miss getting the extra box.

I also picked up this very nice FREE necklace as part of the Men Only Hunt. I thought it had a fantasy feel and decided to include it in my post. This is the gift from etham and is a fairly elaborate and well made silver and blue design on a black cord. It would be an excellent addition to any gentleman’s wardrobe. Just teleport to etham and hunt down the iconic beer symbol and this classic pendant is yours FREE.

With the Cool Dogs

With the Cool Dogs

The Cart Sale is proving a virtual closet filler for us menfolk. I’ve picked up some great finds as I’ve previously shown you [HERE] and [HERE]. I stopped by today to check out the Ruckus Cart and again was thrilled at the offerings.

In the end, I decided on the black hoodie with striped t-shirt. This includes a hud that allows you to change the color of the striped t-shirt part, giving you six color options total including the blue I’m sporting above. The shirt comes in all the standard mesh sizes and is only 10L.

With the Cool Dogs 2

Did you notice the new skin I am sporting? This is the September gift skin from 7 Deadly S{k}ins and it is a nice one. It’s not often you come across a really great skin for men geared toward those with blonde or light colored hair and I was thrilled when I saw the large array of included appliers in this gift.

The group will cost you 150L to join if you are not already a member, but this one skin gift alone will more than pay for the fee. You’ll get 4 system skins (with beard and no beard options), appliers for: slink hands and feet, omega body applier, omega face applier, tmp face applier, and two shapes which are also included as a bonus. I opted to keep my own shape, but found that the included shapes were rather nice, and they are modifiable.

Melusine & Nephty

Melusine & Nephty

I ran across a sweet little spring event today called the “Spring is Here Gacha Fair & Event.” It runs until April 19 and there are about 20 designers participating. Almost every booth has a gift set out priced at 1 to 3L. I picked up one gift in particular from what I think will be an up and coming designer from the quality of this multi-applier tattoo! This Nephtys Tattoo by Pin*Up is an upper body tattoo in layers for Maitreya or Omega and comes in 3 different opacities (light, medium, and dark).

I also want to mention my skin… yes I went red today! Now that the crowds are cleared, and before it is too late… I stopped by Genre and picked up Lumae’s special edition Eirtae – T3 – Shell // Melusine skin. For just 100L you get every applier imaginable as well as both a plain and freckled version at Genre for a limited time. It will disappear soon, so if you love this skin as much as I do, act fast!

Winter is Coming for A Tiffany’s Bride

Sure, you could have a June wedding – but winter is coming. And for me there is something magical about the idea of a white wedding. And even if you aren’t planning a winter wedding… these gifts are too fabulous to pass up!

A Tiffany's Bride [1]

Right now if you stop by Tiffany Designs you can use your group tag to pick up this shimmering Jocey Bridal Gown in white for only 1L (the group is 50L to join). It includes Maitreya, TMP and Slink appliers as well as system layers for the body portion of the gown and though I’m usually a mesh-fan girl… this dress is perfect in flexi. Mesh could NOT have given this dress the ‘flow’ it needed with the glittering affect that the designer added into the flexi pieces, which are simply breathtakingly beautiful for your special day (or any formal dance really).

A Tiffany's Bride [2]

To add a little more sparkle to my Tiffany Design Jocey Bridal head piece, I hopped over to the Swank event, where I discovered that Zuri Rayna was giving away this lovely head piece in steel blue called Madeline. It is completely FREE, no group required. Just stop by the booth at Swank and pick it up!

And if that isn’t enough to convince you that all your second life dreams have come true, just check out this skin that Astrid is wearing? For me it was love at first sight! Who needs a groom? I love the soft freckles, the lovely shade of the lips, and the definition to the collarbones. And this Women’s Stuff Hunt gift from the Deluxe Body Factory was not only completely FREE but also contained Slink and Omega body appliers plus additional Omega lipstick appliers!

A Tiffany's Bride [3]

Of course… what wedding would be complete without a honeymoon? And Tiffany Designs didn’t let me down. Be sure to stop by the front desk on your way out and pick up this sexy Sara Lingerie in green for FREE (no group required for this one). This lovely little number came with system layers as well as Maitreya and TMP appliers to complete your look.

I also topped off my evening look with this sultry long loop necklace I found on Marketplace by Miam Miam. It is only 10L and has 15 color change options (I am showing the green because it matched the lingerie). It’s a piece of jewelry I’m sure I will find myself wearing again and again with that kind of versatility!

Wicked Sexy

“It was, indeed, a tempestuous yet sternly beautiful night, and one wildly singular in its terror and its beauty.” ~Edgar Allen Poe, The Fall of the House of Usher.

Sometimes… it feels good to be wicked. And with Hku Education Island introducing their art tribute Sim to Edgar Allen Poe’s Fall of the House of Usher… now is the perfect time to ready your wardrobe… so that you too can be wild and singular in your beauty.

Sometimes It's Good to Be Wicked [3]

“An excited and highly distempered ideality threw a sulphurous luster over all. His long improvised dirges will ring forever in my ears.” ~Edgar Allen Poe, The Fall of the House of Usher.

But the luster of this Grand Opening gift Skin (pictured in a close up above) that Deesses Boutique is using to celebrate their official new main store location will surely lift even the spirits of any haunted that may remain behind after Lady Madeleine’s untimely departure in Poe’s beloved classic.

This beautiful skin called Selda comes in Caffe Crema tone 060 with Slink feet and hand appliers included (all other body appliers can be purchased at the main store location) and is a FREE gift with your Deesses group tag. The Group is 50L to join, but this one skin alone is well worth the join fee.

Sometimes It's Good to Be Wicked [2]

“There were times indeed when I thought his unceasingly agitated mind was laboring with some oppressive secret.” ~Edgar Allen Poe, The Fall of the House of Usher.

It’s no secret that the Women’s Stuff Hunt is going on and that the gifts are fantastic! And if you stop by *WICKED* this month you can pick up to wicked hot items to add to your wickedly sexy wardrobe. Pictured above is *WICKED*‘s contribution to the Women’s Stuff hunt. Find the little red T-shirt and for just 1L the Ginger Outfit which includes a brown denim mini skirt, tank top, and matching bangle bracelets is yours!

In both these pictures Astrid is sporting a great set of versatile sandals for Slink flat feet that are a steal of a deal you will not want to miss out on. These are 50L per spin gacha prizes you can pick up in store at *OAL* On a Lark. If you play the machine, you’ll find that there are 4 common colors without beads and 4 common colors with beads and color change Huds for the beads, as well as 2 rares with beads and color change Huds for the shoes/beads.

Sometimes It's Good to Be Wicked [1]

“These appearances, which bewilder you, are merely electrical phenomena not uncommon…” ~Edgar Allen Poe, The Fall of the House of Usher.

The great thing about *WICKED* — and about the Hku Education Island Sim’s rendition of the Fall of the House of Usher — is that neither are redundant. The sim includes areas with glowing flowers, lights, and reflective rain… and while the hunt gift from *WICKED* and the House of Usher both have that edgy sulfuric feeling of terror that is common in early Gothic literature, *WICKED*‘s September group gift is a whimsical and lovely dress called Claire in Fuchsia and comes with Hud for color change options for the belt to increase its versatility. You have 6 color choices on the belt for the the belt itself as well as 6 choices for the belt studs!

The Claire dress is yours FREE with your group tag and the group is FREE to join! You first saw this dress blogged HERE by Julianna Seriman when the dress was a hunt gift in the color “ocean.” So if you missed out then, now is your chance to own it in Fuchsia!

Think pink with Boobs, Butts, and Beyond!

Hey Fabbies!

There is a fantastic event going on right now called Boobs, Butts, and Beyond. This event caters to those of us who love our meshy bits, and proceeds go to a great cause (cancer research!). Each designer has several items out for sale, and one or more of those items is set to give a portion (or all) of their sales to this cause. I can’t think of a BETTER reason to get my well-endowed self out and go shopping, can you? What’s the catch? Well, this oh so forgetful fashionista completely forgot this event was going on due to some serious RL issues that have cropped up… oops… SO, this event is in it’s last week, which means get your cute butts out there and shop till you drop while supporting a good cause!
There are numerous wonderful skin designers participating in this event, each of which has one or more of their items with a 50% or more donation to a foundation called breast cancer action, and here are a few of my favourites:

think pink_001

Pixystix has 2 skins, which are called battle and uplifted, out for this event. Battle comes in one tone, while uplifted comes in 3, and both of these include appliers for tango compatible breasts, slink hands, slink feet, baby bump, loud mouth, 4 different booties, and the wowmeh mesh body! The skins are $L300 each, and 50% of all sales of “Uplifted”, which I’m wearing above in the cream tone, go to BCA!

think pink_002

Pixystix also has 3 really really cute dressed out at BBB, all of which have fun boobie-themed messages on them, and include lots of appliers. Each dress is just $L50, and 100% of that goes to BCA!
P.S! The hair I’m wearing in this post is an exclusive item from none other than Ploom for the liaison collaborative! Each half of the hair is independently colourable as well as each of the hair ties, which I have never seen in a hair before. If you pick up the ploomage pack at the event, you’ll have more awesome options than you’ll know what to do with! Remember though that this is an event item, so you only have till the end of TLC to pick it up!

think pink_003

Panda punx has 2 skins out for the event, each one will set you back $L399, but 50% of all of the proceeds from both skins go straight to helping fight cancer. While both of these skins are in a tone that’s too dark for my taste, they’re still lovely, and I’m sure they’re going to look great on you!😉

think pink_004

Next up on our skin shopping list is Pink acid! I have to say, this is my first pink acid skin, and it certainly will not be my last! I love how smooth and soft the face is, and the lips are to die for! I’m wearing the skin with my Alli loud mouth, but it’s just as beautiful without it! The skin will set you back $L998, but includes more features than you can shake a stick at including multiple skins, cleavage layers, and a metric butt-ton of appliers!

think pink_005

Pink acid also has 6 lipsticks and 2 wild coloured eyebrows out at BBB, these cost a cool $L55 each, and 50% of all sales of these items go to BCA!
While I was about halfway through this post, the freshly re-branded Folly released their Soul eyes. These are independently controlled, which allows for heterochromia effects, and are texture change to the extreme! Each part; iris, sclera, pupil, are all touch texture change, which gives you a whopping 2,970 options, plus countless more since they’re modifiable! You definitely don’t want to miss these. PLUS, Cane, the owner, was kind enough to put out a FREE wearable demo pair of these gorgeous eyes! The wearable demo comes in a really pretty silver colour, and all of the parts of them are touch texture change as well!

think pink_006

Finally, if you’re looking for something a bit different, then look no further than Gala fashion designGFD has 8 skins out for the event, and they are definitely something different! The CyberDrone skin comes in 8 colour variations, 2 of which, sorrow and evenness, (the ones I’m showing off above) are 50% donation items!

Happy Valentine’s day everyone! Thank goodness it’s Friday! It’s also a full moon, so I guess today anything is possible.

Also 50L for just today is this “LOVE ME” traveller shirt by BOOM. It looks comfy and is great for a cute casual Valentine’s day outfit. It is also available in  black.

Somehow I don’t remember Jasmine looking quite this hot…

This “Jasmine” outfit and skin are the Enchanted Rockabilly hunt gifts from PixyStix. The nicely coordinated tattoos are also a hunt gift for the 25 for 23 Hunt! A girl could surely get in trouble in an outfit like this. Think I should run off now to practice my belly dancing.

Bygone Diva

I shoulda been in pictures…I coulda been a star! This bygone diva was recently spotted haunting the Innsmouth opera house, wearing the Medieval Fantasy Hunt XI gift from Goddess Fantasies, called Shadow Rose. It comes with both the gown and top hat pictured, and jewelry and a full body tattoo that is not shown.

This gorgeously dark skin I am wearing is a group gift for Violet Mafia by  PixyStix. It comes with lots of variations, including a variety of brow colors, cleavage and even some with awesome looking six pack abs. I bi-colored my eyes by wearing two different mesh Promise Eyes by IKON. (a different color in each eye) My lovely silver hair is the Edith gacha hair by Emo-tions in Gray. It is not only lovely, but truly affordable at only 30L per play!
