Before and After

IMG_2289

Cheerio gang!

This post is not your typical before and after.  Oh gosh I *do* love me a before and after, you know when they do makeovers?  It is one of my fondest wishes to one day get a makeover by professionals.  Alas.  But I love a makeover, it’s always so exciting to see what changes they make and how awesome whomever or whatever they were working on came out!

This is kind of a reverse before and after to showcase the awesome goodies I got at the Arcade Event, courtesy of Pare’.  Now, if you want to get all the juicy details of how the new system at the arcade works, I spelled it all out in my previous post here.  With that out of the way, let’s get on to the fun stuff, the goodies!  The machine for Pare’ is called Night Crawlers and is 75L a play and I had to come back on subsequent days to get both the outfits I was lucky enough to grab.  The above was the pink, which I love.  The below photo shows the Halloween version which I was lucky enough to get on my second day try.  I was originally going to just blog the pink one, but when I got the Halloween one as well, I couldn’t resist combining the two.

So, what exactly do I call my before and after?  The first photo, above, is before the Zombie Apocalypse, the second photo before is, well, after, obviously, and our brave heroine can tell she has become outnumbered and she is about to become Zombie herself.  Notice how she is biting her lip in distress?  So she has gone from geek chic to zombie hunter.

As I stated in my previous post, you choose the size you want to play for in the machine and I chose Maitreya Lara as that is what I wear.

Lessons learned by our lovely heroine… a gun works better than an axe when fighting zombies.  Unfortunately.

Innocent Until Proven Evil

Innocent until Proven Evil

When hinges creak in doorless chambers, and strange and frightening sounds echo through the halls. Whenever candlelights flicker where the air is deathly still — that is the time when ghosts are present, practicing their terror with ghoulish delight!

-Haunted Mansion Ride, Disney parks

Hey gang!

I’m back with some ghoulish delights of my own, found at the new style Arcade Event.  The event has been updated from the old style gachas into a new system of its own, which has you grabbing a HUD as you enter, and which you wear while you shop.  When you find a machine you want to play, you connect it to the machine. (don’t spend fifteen minutes trying to find it on the machines like I did at first, each machine is on a base and at the front of each base is two buttons, one to connect your HUD.)

Once you are connected, it will show you which item has been chosen for you to play for.  If you want that item, you pay the machine (if you try to pay it without the HUD, it will refuse your money and send it back to you.), if not then disconnect and head to another machine.  If you do play, you will get that item and the HUD will show you a new, random choice.

If you want to try again, you have to wait until the next day, as it will reset at midnight, and you can get new random numbers.  If you try again that same day, you will get the same numbers.  It’s kind of fun, really (and a bit addicting!).

So I lucked out on this play, the Mikunch machine where I got this cute dress (you choose the size you want to play for on certain machines), I chose Maitreya cause that’s what body I use.   It comes with a HUD giving you a handful of color choices (black, white, red, pink).  It’s only 75L a play.

This dress gave me sort of a “Bad Seed” sort of vibe, perfect for Halloween.  She is just a sweet girl, right?  Right?!  Only time will tell!

Happy Haunting!

Weekend Mode Activated

Weekend Mode Activated

Ok, I’ve officially given up for the week!  All the stress of nine to five is behind me, and I’ve fooled the masses into thinking I’m drinking a grown up beverage, but I just got it for the candy.  Mwahaha!  I’m so devious.  Let’s get a weekend-ready dress, shall we?

Wait, What?

Ok, folks…. The Arcade is back, and you can get all the goodness of playing a Gacha, without any of the gambling!  Since gachas were banned back in August, people have been hemming and hawing over how to get the thrill of the gacha (I am a fan of a sweet outfit for a low price), but still let you make informed decisions on what you’re about to purchase.  The Arcade has come up with a new HUD system that tells you which items are up next in the queue, so you can either buy what’s next, see what the next few items down the line are, or just walk on and come back later when you can try and get the items you’d really like.  Full disclosure, I had an amazing time playing – and I didn’t spend as much as I used to back when Gacha was a game of chance.  Anywhos, I played the Ricielli gacha, and no matter what you pull you’re sure to end up with a really REALLY pretty dress like the one I got for just 75L.  It’s a win-win!

Sizes

  • Maitreya
  • Legacy
  • Kupra

You can check out all the information about how to play the new system HERE, and also take a look at the catalogue while you’re there to see what you want to grab.

What do you think of this new system?  Let me know in the comments!

North Pole Sparkle

North Pole Sparkle

Hello and Happy Friday, FabFree! We made to the weekend! WHOOT!  And now, it’s time to relax, do some hunting and hit the granddaddy of the Gacha events… The Arcade! I always look forward to the Arcade and all those fantastic gachas. And I usually spend way too much. But, hey, Lindens are for spending, right?

So this December round, I spent a lot of lindens playing Dirty Princess’ “North Pole Princess”. Usually, I avoid the gachas where the Rare is the one thing that makes the outfit. But this set was so cute, I had to try. There are only three items to win: the boots ( with a solid white color as the other rare), the earrings and the rare coat. I got so lucky. I pulled three sets of earrings, one set of common boots then bingo! The rare coat.  It made my day!  So head over to the Arcade and try your luck.

Sizes Included for both boots and coat

  • Maitreya Lara

Simply Having a Wonderful Christmastime

Simply Having A Wonderful Christmastime

Heya FabFree!

Happy Friday!  I am filled with Christmas spirit today, and heading off into the woods for some general prancing and merrymaking.  I love The Forest sim far too much (it usually disappears the rest of the year, so I gotta cram it in now!) and this super Christmassy outfit was exactly the right look for frolicking in the lights and snow!

All The Things

I’m sending you to three different locations today, and I’m feeling a bit non-verbose, so I’ll keep it simple for ya.  I picked up my dress, gloves, jewelry and shoes all for free, and here are the deets:

  • Free dress and gloves by Maai sized for Maitreya.  Grab this one by joining the MGSN group for free, and clicking on the vendor at the landing point.
  • Free shoes by Mosquito’s Way sized for Belleza, Maitreya, Slink and TMP .  The Mosquito’s Way group is free to join.  You’ll find this one on the wall to the right of the front desk!
  • Free earrings by ChicChica.  No group to join here, just click on the box on the front counter!  There’s also a matching ring in the box.

I hope my quick rundown of what I’m wearing wasn’t too jarring, I promise I won’t be so lazy in the future.  It’s Friday and I am raaaather exhausted from the day’s exploits!  Here are the vendor photos for the smaller items so you can see the detail.

Wicked Woman

Wicked Woman

My favourite iteration of the witch is one which is thoroughly modern.  I love the idea of a classy dame who just happens to be magical, maybe a bit mischievous and yet super fashionable.  Gone are the green-faced witches of our youth, replaced with imperious, strong women who know just what spell will work for every problem!

Thoroughly Modern

I was doing some investigative fashion-seeking the other day at Lowen, and I was ever so excited to find their group gifts!  Their group is currently free to join and you’ll find three lovely gifts right behind the main counter.  I’m showing you the Carmen dress as well as Angel sunglasses that aren’t only wearable for the Halloween season.  They just kinda called to me and got me in a wicked mood.  They come with fairly extensive HUDs so you’re sure to make this look all yours.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya

Have fun, my modern coven!

All Over Again

All Over Again

I’m back in pink and black again.  It seems to be a thing that just happens!  And the best part is, I don’t mind one bit!

I’ve Had a Vision!

It’s ViSion’s 10th Anniversary inworld, and they are totally spoiling their group members!  If you join their group for 18L, you’ll gain access to an awesome group gift of 450L in store credit.  The best part is, the whole store is on sale, so you get way more bang for your buck.  I bought the bodysuit (the necklace is included) and skirt I’ve got on there, and I still had money left over for more!  Fantastic!  You’ve got until October 18th to take part in all the festivities, so don’t let this gift get away from you!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Legacy
  • Legacy Perky
  • Maitreya
  • Maitreya Petite

Pumpkin Spice

See you sweet things soon!

Leaves are falling all around
It’s time I was on my way
Thanks to you I’m much obliged
For such a pleasant stay
But now it’s time for me to go
The autumn moon lights my way
For now I smell the rain
And with it pain
And it’s headed my way

Ramblin’ On

I couldn’t help but quote a bit of Led Zeppelin at you.  When Autumn comes around, that song always has me feeling all the feels!  Anyway, there’s maaaaassive news from Mangula today, and that is that they’ve got 20 free gift boxes lying around the store for everyone to pick up!  No group join required, just click on the boxes scattered around the shop.  You’ll also find that each box doesn’t just contain one gift, they each contain multiple, and that’s hella generous!  I fell in love with the contents of box #6, which is this awesome corseted dress.  I don’t know how long this will be going on for, as it is listed as “limited time only” so get your patoot over there!

Update:  Looks like you have to hit the subscrib-o-matic in order to pick up the gifts!  It’s located over the front desk and is free to join!
