Tie Dye & Wave

Tie Dye & Wave

It’s so twisted! But definitely awesome! From June 1st through the 30th… creators have gathered for a good cause! At the Twisted Summer of Love event you can shop and benefit the American Cancer Society… while also hunting for 58 twisted cubes with FREE goodies!

I found a really rad hair that I fell in love with. The FREE gift from The Stringer Mausoleum called “The Wave” is in one of the twisted cubes around the shopping area if you hunt it down (there are decoys!). It comes in this luscious berry color! I used my included LuLutka white hairbase and tinted it to match and voila!

Then did a little shopping and found this really fabulous tie dye shirt by Roped Passions for only 75L at the creator’s booth. I’ve always been a fan of tie dye and this fit the bill (and matched my new hair). There were several other colors to choose from, as well as several outfits that you can purchase and the proceeds will be donated to the American Cancer society. That’s a win win for everyone!

Excuse #1

The main excuse people give me for not wanting to take advantage of the amazing gifts and prizes that top content designers in SL give us is because “I don’t want to go around looking like everyone else!”

I wear freebies, dollarbies, and cheapies almost exclusively, but I have never been accused of being merely “average”. Trust me on this one: Freebies will not make you look like everyone else.

A mishmash of excellent designer gifts

Shown above is a totally “freebie” Shang, even the cross in the background was a freebie. Most of the items shown are from hunts currently in process, assuming, of course, that you’re reading this post around the time I wrote it.

On Shang:

Atargatis and Shangra Mer

Renee told me about a second (Soon to be a third, I hope! There are rumours that there might soon be another wonderful, free mertail at Fabfree HQ.) tail at Fabfree HQ.

Anyway..

When I saw this pretty butterfly tail from Atargatis, I knew just what to wear with it — hair and skin from Helena Stringer! And I must say that I love  the resulting look.

atargatis

Unlike many of our land-bound sisters, mermaids don’t strive for conventional beauty, we have a beauty that is all our own. We like to look our part as denizens of the deep, we like our colouring, shape, and extremities to reflect our heritage as a people uniquely adapted to our watery environment.

Mermaid tail is by Atargatis, and is available at Fabfree HQ. The Shang Mer skins in deep green and purple  by Helena Stringer are also available at Fabfree HQ. Hair, TSM Quill in Halloween glow is a past hunt gift.. and probably no longer available.

Now that you have joined the ranks of the merpeople, where do you go?

The Body as Art II

I’ve stalked the lucky chairs at Vendom on occasion to try for one of their great skins.

I have no patience for lucky chairs.. at all.

Fortunately for me, they also have fortune teller chairs, with Vendom’s beautiful Blue Crytsal Demon Skin. While you’re there, check out the Vendom MM board.

Sometimes a skin doesn’t need anything but the right hair, and what else would I pair with a skin like this but one of Helena Stringer’s sapphire blue Double Duster (sorry, not free). The sculptural nature of the mohawk plays beautifully on this unusual skin.

The Stringer Mausoleum at the Hair Fair

No stranger to wonderfully unusual hairstyles, Helena Stringer of The Stringer Mausoleum has tucked a wonderfully unusual freebie into her Hair Fair booth.

hairfairstringer

This pincushion of a hairstyle (reminds me a bit of Hellraiser), is called, appropriately enough, Pincushion. It comes in a pack of five colours.
