I keep starting hunts and not putting together a post before they end. True to form, there are gifts from the Wayward hunt that just ended in this post. Some may still be out for a little bit longer, but I’m betting most of you grabbed this terrific stuff already anyway. The rest of the goodies here are mostly from faMESHed, which is having a birthday event with gifts.  Join the FaMESHed group for tons of gifts from top designers.  A few weren’t working when I visited, so skip them if nothing shows up after a few clicks.

Cold Weather Flight

I can’t get over how generous second life creators are this time of year.  I’m completely in love with this look and my total cost was 1L * (a bit more for you to exactly recreate it, as you’ll have to buy the two items from my store, but I bet you can find free substitutes if you look around).  Be sure and visit Winter Trend Fair and pick up the other gifts there along with these Seasonal “Must Have” boots.  The Frozzen Fair runs for just a few more days if you haven’t grabbed those items,  and there’s lots of goodness to be had at the KittyCats Advent calendar (link below is to the location at WOW skins, since it seems to be less crowded, but you can pick them up at the KittyCat main store if you prefer. Details
Skin – Essence LadyDyvine Medium (with teeth layer) – Gift in Store
Hair – MINA Hair Natasja – KittyCats Advent gift (all prior days are available)
Sweater – Sn@tch Fishing Outfit Sequin Sweater “Ice Queen” (fishing is free and doesn’t require bait but you do need to purchase a pole)
Fur Vest – ::Purple Moon:: Rita Vest Faux Fur Brown – WomenStuff Hunt 1L
Scarf – *League* Snood Paisely – Gift in Store
Skirt – :: Purple Moon :: Tammy mini Skirt (6 textures) – Free Dove Hunt #03

Not Quite Frozzen

The Frozzen fair is under way and I’m participating with these Rainy Day boots.  All original unrigged mesh and textures for $25L for the duration of the fair in 6 bright colors.  Swing by the booth and get this color change umbrella for free as a thank you for visiting.  I also paid a visit to Truth for the 50% off sale.  It’s tough to get into the sim, but patience is rewarded.  Now is the time to stock up on amazing hair!  Lastly, I may be the last to know, but the Arcade this round features a lovely Christmas tree in the center, and under it are tons of gifts from many of the Arcade designers.  Again it’s tough to get in, but worth the effort it.

More Dirty Turkeys

There are dozens of “must get” gifts in this hunt and I’m showing you just a few more here, plus these great boots from *Promagic* which you can get from clicking the subscriber in the store.  All the Dirty Turkey Hunt gifts are free. I’m especially fond of the two lip gloss gifts because I love changing up the look of a skin with extra makeup.   Both of these are well done and have worked on a number of different skins. My “Wing Rings” are my first attempt at a gacha in a long while, and I rather like how they came out.  You can take a stab at them  this month at the Thrift Shop event, and pick up my Heeled Croc Loafers for only 20L while you are there.       Worn  (Dirty Turkey Hunt SLurls are on the blog because I’m lazy, and because you should do the whole thing) Skin – Lumae Nima Caramel Rosa – Dirty Turkey Hunt

Casual Cowboy

    Alexx is wearing my new Western Stitched Boots along with some other low cost finds from around the grid.  By way of full disclosure on the boots, he had to adjust his avatar hover in the edit appearance panel so the boots would ride a bit more beneath the jeans than normal.  Fitting male pants to shoes is seemingly more of a challenge than for females.

Sequin Slippers

More colors of the slippers featured in my last post are now in the store or on marketplace.  10L for individual colors or 50L for the fat pack of 12, these are a nice addition to dress up casual outfits and are modifiable, to fit a number of mesh feet reasonably well (try the free wearable demo in pumpkin if you want to be sure you can make them fit).  And if you just like free stuff, the teal pair is in a lucky board, and you can pick up the yellow pair as a gift in the store by the front desk.

I’m also releasing the shoes in several solid colors for a very low price.  These shoes are in the men’s department but definitely fit women too.  They are all original mesh and textures, hand made by me.  You won’t find these anywhere else on the grid.

Visit Duh! at the Aloha Fair (opening today) to find my redone mesh Espadrilles.  These are designed for Slink feet and are very reasonably priced for the fair at only $40L.  As an extra incentive to visit my booth, there’s a free gift (and lots of other free and 1L gifts are scattered around the fair… look for the surf boards).  Also, I’m offering the demo for this shoe in a fully wearable version (color, “Mustard”).  That means there are no demo textures or prims attached.  It’s just like every other shoe in the line, so come get a free pair! The fair opens at noon today (SL time), July 28th, and runs through August 11th.  Visit the blog here, and the fair here.  110 vendors bringing you summer, beach and Hawaiian themed items!

Free is Fabulous

I’ve updated my gift at the Fab Free Headquarters to these glossy black stilletto boots.  They are one piece original mesh construction and resizable in any dimension with the included hud.  This means you can make them fit a wide variety of avatar shapes and over/under some mesh clothing items that might give you trouble with  rigged mesh items. These will be free at the headquarters for at least a month.  There are lots of other gifts there too, and they are updated regularly.  No group membership required, but I recommend it.  The folks at Fab Free are one of the oldest communities of bargain hunters on the grid and the enourmous group is always fast to spot and share a deal!     Taxi:

Showing my gift for the Cool Me Down Hunt which starts June 1.  This color change mesh bag features 6 shades and is all original mesh and textures.  I’m also sporting my “decidedly not beach friendly” skin, the new Pink Fuel gift skin “Harley” in Crystal.  This generous gift comes with tons of options and appliers and is dead on my real life pale complexion. I love it so much.  The group has been free for some time now, but an enrollment fee has been added with this gift.  The 500L charge is money well spent.   Details Skin – Pink Fuel Harley, Crystal.

How Big is Your Hair?

  When I was a noob, Damselfly was one of the kings of the Second Life hair scene.  I owned plenty of it back in the day, but I’ll admit, when I discovered sculpted,and then mesh hair, I never looked back.  On an Easter hunt I was pleasantly surprised to see Damselfly still alive and well, and making BIG hair.  So big it takes 3 pieces to attach it all to your head!  But it moves and it’s fun, and did I mention BIG?  And there’s lots of colors… And it’s free, for the work of finding a small egg hidden on the MODA sim here. There are hunt hints, and the one for this prize involves looking for a place to wash your hands. The Men’s department is open for a new round (and celebrating it’s second birthday) and these pants are a gift from the Pumpkin Vendor.  Look around, I found at least one other gift while there.  The jacket is the latest midnight mania prize from Poison, and my skin is part of a fatpack of skins that is the latest group gift from Modish.… Read the restDamselflyblog3

I’m late, I’m late, for a very important hunt!

  I know the Twisted Hunt bills itself as the most difficult one on the grid (and with good cause), but the annual RMK Bunny hunt has to be a close runner up.  You go the sim, look for smallish bunnies that are hoping around, follow them for a bit, and wait for them to pop out a ticket, which they only do once every few minutes or so, and then immediately hop away (so you can’t even just follow one.. they re-rez somewhere else and you have to find them again).  There are usually multiple people watching a particular rabbit, so you must be the first one to click on the ticket once it pops out.  And then you wear the ticket and click a book located next to the hunt poster in the participarting store, (which you often must search to find) to receive your gift.  But here’s the thing, I do it every year.  The gifts are always sweet and imaginative, the sim is lovely, and there’s just something about a challenge I can’t resist! I got 8 tickets in all this year (out of how many, I’m not sure, but at least 18 based on the numbers on the ones I got), and I’m showing a few of them.  … Read the restblog
