Zombie Hunter

Zombie Hunter

To get myself into the mood for Halloween, I decided to grab my crossbow and head over to Dystopia in search of zombies. Unfortunately, my car broke down, so it looks like I’ll be staying for a while.

Hang on, I think I see something moving behind that big pile of trash…

(For the record, there don’t appear to be any zombies at Dystopia. But if you’re looking for a well-designed, post-apocalyptic sim, you should definitely pay it a visit.)

The Outfit

What inspired my look today was the September group gift from Ghee. I’ve seen it styled a number of different ways on Flickr, but for some reason, when I put it on, I felt all Sarah Conner from The Terminator. All I had to do was add a weapon, and I was a bad@$$ zombie hunter!¬†ūüėé

The VIP 09/17 GIFT from Ghee is a complete outfit that includes the cargo pants, tank top, and boots. The ribbed tank comes with a texture-change HUD with 6 different colors — black, yellow, orange, blue, pink, and the beige color I’m wearing — so you could definitely wear the tank as part of another outfit.

Sizes for the pants and top include:

  • Standard mesh XXS-L with alpha
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique

The boots are “one size fits all.” Just remember to remove your mesh feet first.

The Accessories

I shopped around quite a bit to find the perfect accessories for my look:

  • Hair – I picked up the Rossella Hair by Tableau Vivant at The Arcade for 50L. I love this “roots” version because everyone knows zombie hunters don’t have time to dye their hair, right?
  • Sunglasses – These super cool DESTRUCTINATOR glasses by TBF are available¬†on the Marketplace for 10L. There’s no resizer, but you can edit > stretch to change the size.
  • Necklace – Another gacha, this time by Dahlia at The Imaginarium for 50L. Click for a resizer menu.
  • Bracelet – An oldie, but a goodie, by Eli Rae’s Tinkering, available for 5L on the Marketplace. There’s no resizer, and you can’t stretch either, so the size is what it is. Originally shown 4 years ago by Caresia Adored, some SL items just never go out of style. ūüôā

The Weapon

No zombie hunter would be complete without a weapon, of course. I selected this scary crossbow by Blackburns, which I found on the Marketplace for 29L. It comes with a wearable version that hooks onto your back (without any straps, which I thought looked a bit odd), as well as the

It comes with a wearable version that hooks onto your back (without any straps, which I thought looked a bit odd), as well as the posed version that I’m showing here, which¬†actually shoots. Oh, and it includes an arrow that you can wear in your head, if you like.

Sadly, I didn’t find any actual zombies to shoot at in Dystopia. But I did have fun firing at the trees on my sim, which scared the daylights out of my dogs. ūüėõ

Happy hunting, folks!

A Million Bucks

Snapshot_003
Hey there Fabulouses!¬†¬†You don’t have to spend a million bucks to look a million bucks.¬† It’s all about pulling the right things together ;).¬† I managed to ¬†put my entire outfit together for free today, and only spent 75L on the hair!

A Formal Find

COCO Designs, who has a plethora of free group gifts with a free group join, has added this stunning black Halter Gown to their group gifts area!  I should pay my thanks to Carson, who was the one that alerted me of this great find and inspired my look today.  I am so glad he mentioned it, because I do very much love this dress with the gorgeous texturing and sleek leg peek design.  Normally I am not a fan of ruffles and frills, but the ruffle around the bottom of the long sexy draped skirt really balances it out.  Not only does this gown look fantastic when I am standing still, but it moves very nicely with you when you walk. (Thanks Carson!)

Sizes included:

  • Maitreya
  • Slink Physique
  • Slink Hourglass

Bundle yourself up…

The gown does not include the fur scarf, however you can find this as a free group gift in the same section at COCO Designs in three colours, so just pick it up while you are there!  They work with all kinds of avatars as they are adjustable.

Don’t Forget Your Dancing Shoes

The other day [HERE], I mentioned that The Arcade Gacha has several free gifts (just priced at 0L) under their Christmas Tree, and I am still unpacking the boxes I picked up!  I found these amazing Empire Cranesbill heels that include a texture change hud with plenty of colour options in one of those boxes!

Compatible with:

  • Belleza
  • Slink
  • Maitreya
  • TMP

The Finishing Touch

I have blogged about these lovely Xia locks by Truth Hawks before, but now… Truth is participating in the 12 Days of Savings promotion on marketplace and you can pick up several styles priced at just 75L each!¬† Xia is one of them ūüôā

Why So Early Kittens?

Snapshot_004Hey there FabFree readers!!¬† Today, as you can see…¬† I am up WAY too early tendng to the needs of my very needy kittens.¬† Why are they always¬†up so early?¬† I wish I was a morning person…¬†¬†Seriously, if I could wake up at 8:30 every day, that would be just fine with me :).¬† Work days, weekends, whatever –¬†I think that’s a natural time for me to just wake up without alarms…¬† or cats.

These Witty Cats by the way, are available at this round of The Arcade Gacha by Mutresse for 50L per play.  There are several really funny/sassy cats to try your luck on.

I haven’t even had a chance to get dressed yet, but since I haven’t, I suppose I should tell you that this cute Flamingo Love Lingerie Set is available at Milk Tea as a free hunt prize for the Women Only Hunt!¬† The hunt icon you are looking for is a little coconut, and it’s really quite easy to find given the hint that you can pick up at the landing.¬† I’m including their vendor ad below so that you can see the full set up close.
WOH_Flamingos & summerI should also mention, since they fall under 75L that the items used to build the scene in my photos are mostly made up of items from the Dust Bunny Wanderlust Gacha Set (Arcade Gacha Р50L per play).  I have used the Hadera Caravan, Apothecary Cabinet, Belted Pillows and Bouquet Teacup.

The¬†“Let’s Have a Good Day Coffee Tray” can be found in the FollowUs Marketplace store¬†as a dollarbie!¬† If I am up anyways, I might as well eat and get on with my day, right? ūüôā

TGIF & Siss Boom Weekend Specials

Snapshot_003TGIF!!¬† It’s been a long week.¬† I sure wish I had a beautiful lake house in RL to escape to…¬† but I suppose a Second Life trip will have to do for now!

If you happen to have a few¬†spare lindens kicking around this weekend,¬†make sure you take a little trip to Siss Boom and check out the sales they have going on.¬† I popped in and picked up the high waisted¬†floral printed Boyfriend¬†Jeans for 60L and this great matching Jersey Lace Top (available in a system layer and¬†Omega applier) in¬†green for 55L.¬†¬† These jeans come in both gold and silver belt options and I gotta say… the gold option matches the top¬†to perfection.¬† Also –¬†as this top is an applier, there is no interference with the mesh jeans as we sometimes see with mesh on mesh outfits.

I should mention my hair as well as it is also a smoking hot deal!  You can find the Oleander Chanmi Hair I am wearing at The Arcade Gacha for 50L per play.  This round is ending quickly, so if you like this hair Рact fast!

Enjoy your weekend ‚̧
