Death Before Decaf

Death Before Decaf

It’s been a long time since I’ve been “hunting” in Second Life, but this is my personal favorite season for hunts. The Autumn Effect Hunt started recently, and I’m really excited about the items I’ve come across thus far. The Autumn Effect Hunt is a FREE hunt, and there are items for the men as well as the ladies. So far one of my favorite TAE hunt prizes is this fun fall outfit from The Little Bat.

I adore bats, they are part of classic Halloween iconography. Though I’ll tell you, I’d wear bat-themed clothing year-round without hesitation! This cute sweater from TLB is fully mesh and includes the needed alpha for classic avatars. I had no issue wearing it with my Matreya Lara body. Also included in the FREE TAE hunt gift from TLB are these rust-red colored corduroys. In my mind, corduroys are to fall fashion what bats are to Halloween, making this combo a perfect fall outfit, though you could wear each piece separately. Also fully mesh, these pants come in the usual standard sizes and have a matching alpha layer.

One of the many things I like about fall is the fact that it’s cool enough for me to enjoy hot coffee no matter what time of day it is. I’m not one who can drink hot coffee during the day in the summer, it just makes me melt, and not in a good way. This fun coffee cup is the FREE TAE hunt prize at Reckless. It’s my new favorite accessory. The cup is animated with a drinking animation, and includes a color/texture change hud. The hud allows you to change the cup and lid colors between black and white, and it allows you to change the texture of the cardboard sleeve. The option shown reads “Death Before Decaf” which I think should be my motto on some days! There is a second option (not shown) that reads ” If Loving Pumpkin Spice Makes Me A Basic Bitch, Then A Basic Bitch I’ll Be “, and I have to admit it made me giggle.

Okay, I’ll admit it, there needed to be a better photo of these hauntingly pretty eyes from Arise. They are the FREE TAE gift at Arise. These pale peachy-copper colored eyes come with a standard eye layer, and optional mesh eyes. Every once in a while I enjoy wearing an eye color that is a major departure from what one might consider normal. The second I saw these, I had to show them. They are beautiful and give a truly unique look.

Alright Fab Free, here are the details, Happy Hunting!

Jersey Girl

Snapshot_008

Hiya Fabulouses! ILAYA is giving away a really cute Mesh Burgandy Jersey Dress at their mainstore after you join their free subscribomatic.  All you need to do is subscribe and the gift is auto sent to you.  It is a dress, however I chose to pair it up with some jeans from my inventory for more of a fall look.  I bet this dress would look super cute with a pair of brown boots or even flip flops for a casual beach look too.

The gold necklace with the leaf pendant I am wearing is Atooly‘s Fall Necklace which can be found as a The Autumn Effect Hunt prize.  If you’d like to see the necklace closer up, you can click on the photo and it will take you to my flickr stream where you can resize the photo larger.  Our blog format doesn’t allow for very large photos.

The skin I am in today is a free Midnight Mania prize at WOW Skins called Manualla Milk.  The MM boards at WOW Skins are group boards, so that means you’ll have to join the group and the fee is 250L to join, but it’s well worth it if you are a collector of skins.  After joining the group you gain access to tons of lucky boards, MM boards, and plentiful group gifts.

A Casual Stroll

Snapshot_003
Hey Fabulouses!  I put together a casual kind of outfit that I’d wear around my SL home and I thought I would share it with you.  Some items are free, and some not so free, but all are loved by me!

First, I picked up the Smexy Sweater for free at 1 Hundred which is the item that inspired my outfit (you can find the Smexy Sweater hidden in The Autumn Effect Hunt icon).  After I had the sweater, I knew I needed a hawt pair of new jeans and remembered that Cynful had a pair of mesh Bell Bottoms featured at The Dressing Room Fusion for 70L.  Of course I couldn’t leave the shop without picking up the adorable Bee Bag by TokiD for 70L as well…  Darn impulse purchases…  but it’s cute right?

I don’t normally wear glasses, but when I tried the Umeboshi Castor Glasses in Black & White on (just 10L!), I fell in love.  I might just wear these more often!

And that’s how it all came together folks 😉

Duh! It’s Time To Visit CandyMetal

Snapshot_007

Good morning Fabulouses 😉  Have you checked out the group gifts at CandyMetal yet?  The group is free to join, and after you are a member, you can pick up two group gifts.  I’m displaying one of them for you today, but you’ll have to head into the shop to see the other!  The CandyMetal mesh Tunic Dress is available as a free group gift and comes with a handy hud that allows for several texture changes.

The boots I am wearing today are the Essentail Fall Boots for The Autumn Effect Hunt at Duh!, and are perfect for this time of year 😉  Pru showed you a few prizes from The Autumn Effect Hunt the other day (here).  This is a super hunt with a ton of really great and free prizes, so make sure you check out their blog for more information.

While I was at The Duh! store looking for the hunt icon, I picked up the Big Satchel in brown to complete my look.  This bag has been shown before by Serena and myself, but I thought I’d mention it again in case it was new to anyone.  It is available for 20L in several colours!
