Slowly Going Nowhere

Slowly Going NowhereHello again Fab Free’rs! Finally it’s starting to feel like fall where I live. I’m excited to be able to dig out more of my fall wardrobe. Until now, my virtual wardrobe has had to support my love of cold weather clothing. That said, I also find I spend more time outside when the weather is colder. There was something interesting in unique about the “Acid Rain” group gift from Death Row Designs. While definitely not the ideal patio furniture, it certainly tells a story. I also styled my outfit for the cooler weather using a dollarbie hunt prize sweater from Vindiktive.

Role-play is such a huge part of Second Life, and even though I rarely participate in that aspect these days, I’m always inspired by creations in SL that lend themselves to storytelling. After all, story telling is essentially what role-play is all about. This FREE group gift chair and umbrella set from Death Row Designs does just that. The “Acid Rain” set of ruined furniture is highly detailed and has both male and female poses for the chair. Also included in the gift are two hand-held umbrellas which are not shown. When I saw this gift, I instantly thought about where these items had been, who they belonged to, what had happened. It made me think of situations where this furniture fit the scenario, like a post apocalyptic environment. The story started to unfold. That’s why I chose to share this unique gift with you. The Death Row Designs group is FREE to join, just wear your tag and click the gift vendor to get this gift.
THLH VindiktiveNext up, you guessed it, my sweater loving soul found another sweater! This one is the “The High Life Hunt” prize at Vindiktive. I’m not often a fan of high cropped sweaters, but this one I adore. I like the fall colors of the plaid, and the material texture looks like it would be soft and warm to the touch. I even like the mock turtleneck. This hunt is a dollarbie hunt, so the sweater costs just 1 linden. There are no groups to join, just head out to Vindiktive and hunt it down. Included in the package you’ll get the sweater in standard mesh sizes, as well as body specific sizes for Slink Physique, Slink Hour Glass, Maitreya Lara, Bellezia (Isis, Freya, Venus), and TMP. With all the sizes included, this top should be easy to wear for most mesh and classic avatars.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Foot Prints

“It is inevitable that I will leave a legacy simply because I cannot walk through life without leaving footprints as I walk. Therefore, I would be wise to consider the path before I make the prints.” — Craig D. Lounsbrough

The Walk a Mile in My Shoes Hunt will be ending on February 29th. It’s a small hunt, but the prizes are amazing… if you haven’t jumped to a few of the spots to pick up the goodies yet, consider making a few stops. I dropped by free bird and Le Poppycock and Anachron and their generous gifts for this hunt got me to thinking about all of the ways that we touch others’ lives, sometimes without even realizing it.

The Walk a Mile in My Shoes Hunt is a 10L hunt, and you are looking for a little red and black shoe. At free bird, your hunting will reward you with this simple but lovely framed wall art called “Leave Only Footprints.” It is no copy, but if you want more than one, for the tiny sum of 10L, you can buy the shoe more than once.

Le Poppycock is giving this beautiful pose with all the props (the stool, hold-able rose and Siamese cat, and the roses at your feet) for their 10L gift as part of the hunt. You actually do not have to rezz anything, which is a real bonus! You wear the stool to activate the pose (be sure to turn off your AO) and then ‘add’ the other parts of the pose. This means you’ll be able to use this pose with its props in world at just about any location for photos.

My dress is a stunner and can be yours for only 1L if you take a moment to do a bit of searching at Vindiktive as part of the Haunted Love Hunt. Stop by the main-store and look for the broken heart. This dress comes in all the standard mesh sizes as well as fitmesh, Maitreya, Belleza, and Slink.

If you stop by the Shiny Shabby event to do some shopping, be sure to pick up some of the many amazing FREE gifts that creators are generously giving at the event this round. My lovely FREE hair by DeLa is a special Shiny Shabby anniversary gift with a special edition color hud in a variety of pink colors. This is a really soft and feminine hair and included in the gift pack was both a regular and busty fit.

My Half Moon bracelets are also a clever find at Shiny Shabby. This fatpack was another FREE for all gift, this time from RAMA. I am showing them off in the silver and black, but the fatpack included 7 different color styles for you to mix and/or match with all your outfits. These are a lovely accessory!

And I also really wanted to show off a close up of my shoes. For a mere 10L in the Walk a Mile in my Shoes Hunt, you can pick up these incredibly creative sandals from Anachron. The style is impeccable and finding shoes this unique for a 10L price tag is an incredible deal. These shoes fit slink flat feet.
