Things you need, things you only desire

If you’re an old-timer like me, you might remember the days of the Elikatera annual sale, and how, in the era before “event” shopping, they were memorable for the crowds and excitement. If you’re feeling nostalgic you can drop by Elikatera right now to experience the same great hair at a great price feeling. Everything in the store is 75 Lindens, just for a short while. Not much is free in the post, but lots of good 50 Linden Friday bargains to be found, including these tube socks I’ve been looking for all my Slife. THANK YOU IZZIE! The top is cute, with lots of sizing options, as a gift for the Love Pink Hunt, and is only 2L. The shoes are mine, and are the wearable demo for my thick soled sneaks (so free!) Also, if you haven’t heard, Collabor88 has made it a lot easier to spend money this month.  The slurl below is for their offsite shopping sim where I picked up these cute shorts (and tons of other great items).  The theme this month is “secret garden” and I loved every interpretation there.… Read the restDesire March 11

My Moon Boots are out in the store and on marketplace now, in a fatpack of 8 colors (including black and white).  I’ve been finding lots of ways to wear these versatile and colorful boots, and they are unrigged mesh to allow for resizing to fit any avatar (try a demo though, just in case).

A Whole New Thing (Menstuff Hunt)

I really love the serendipity of a typical hunt, but I’m also a big fan of hunts that happen to provide everything you need to deck out an avatar.  Usually, this isn’t planned, and often a hunt will be heavy in some aspect of avatar couture for no obvious reason.  However the Menstuff hunt this month manages to cover it all, with multiple options in almost every category.  Skins, hair, eyes, poses, shoes,tats, accessories, shapes and clothing, it’s all there, and all good quality.  The avatar shown here is 100% from the hunt.  Some items are free; some are 1L.  Hints and slurls are here: Details – All from the hunt Skin – Deluxe body Factory Asher
Shape – **Story Leaf** Nick Shape
Hair – Raw House Akuma BRN (tinted)
Eyes – Avi-Glam Jade

Is There Life On Mars

Just a few things I picked up this week, and one of my gifts for the Free Dove January Hunt. If you don’t already know, Palomma at the free Dove arranges for several designers to hide multiple free gifts throughout the store each month. These are in addition to the semi-permanent offerings. So easy and fun (the hunt is restricted to the store) and so many lovely free gifts. This jacket is from a new-to-me designer, Powers Designs. It’s lovely and well made and free to group members. It’s also a great match for these pants from -tres blah-, part of a 5 pack in standard sizing, along with Slink and Maitreya bodies. The group is not free but there are multiple prior gifts available in the store right now, along with these pants. Hair – [e] Iria (not free)
Skin – Pink Fuel Old Gacha in Cyber Grey
Top – [POWERS] mesh leather Jacket Red (includes shirt) Group Gift in store Free to Join
Pants – tres blah Vinyl Pants Pearl – Group Gift in store – Fee to Join

Futuristic Hunting

Perhaps you are a little burned out on the holidays at this point, or could just use a distraction from the endless pile of gifts that need wrapping.  I have just the ticket.  The Futuristic Hunt has started and I’m offering these moon boots in two colors.  This is a 5L hunt, and the hints and slurls are here, along with a gallery toward the bottom of the page to see the prizes.  Slurls are all on the blog (not in the prizes) so you’ll need to keep that available. In addition to a few hunt prizes I’m wearing the Group Gift from Lelutka.  This bolero comes in a range of colors but you can only try for one set per day.  Wear your group tag and click the box under the (gorgeous) tree, and then be sure and take a copy of the tree too. Lastly this adorable bob is from Lamb and it’s under the tree at the Arcade along with tons of other terrific gifts!  I have trouble with some makers/styles in fitting them to mesh heads, but this one worked like a dream.… Read the restFuturistic Hunt

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.

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.
