No matter how Ava twists and turns to get a look at her Sugar Skull follower, her leather pants follow right along. They're a remarkable fit for the Maitreya body, and the textures are amazing. The Black Supreme Pants from ArisArisB&W are an original design with openings that let the stockings show through. A Hud varies the textures of the stockings and metals. I love these pants! A limited quantity is available on the Marketplace for $99L in a special PROMO.

Elves love all nature


GIFTS (most FREE!): CAROL G. ~ ELEMENTAL ~ [KoKoLoReS] ~ Morph Studios ~ Sweet Tea ~ United Colors ($9L) ~ Yasum ~ Zombie Suicide ~

Do you notice that Ava is sitting and that her dress is perfectly following? No alpha was used for her Maitreya mesh body, and there is no flashing anywhere. Ava's slinky dress is a gift from United Colors at Kustom9, and it shows the potential of mesh when the designer knows how to attach it skillfully to the avatar "bones". The Spiral Seduction dress also has a Hud to show or hide the spiderweb lace. I love this dress!

Ava is wearing two gifts from groups that are free to join only for a short time: Sweet Tea and Zombie Suicide. Both offer past gifts, so now would be a good time to join their V.I.P. groups and sample the goodies.

The off season


FREE gifts from The Annex ~ ERSCH ~ :LW: Poses ~ "mignon." ~ Mug ~ Shoenique Designs ~ .::SO::. ~ -SU!- ~ Sintiklia ~ [VALE KOER] ~ + Witchcraft +

I love the beach in the off season. On those stellar autumn days when the world is leaf peeping, I like the isolated dunes. Sometimes it's just me and the seagulls. I like autumn foliage too, but I can catch it on my way to the beach.

At Luanes World I found an isolated beach, and I also found two new gifts: one for members of the :LW: Poses group and the other for members of the SL Frees and Offers group. This seems to be a monthly tradition, and both groups are free to join.

At the Sintiklia main store I found a new gift for Sintiklia group members, the tres chic Minaj hair, and also several new gifts for everyone. The lucky letter boards at Sintiklia are also open to everyone.

Snuggled in


~ FREE gifts from {amiable} ~ CAZIMI ~ EmmaKae ~ Sintiklia ~

The snuggly angora tunic with lacy knickers is a new gift at the {amiable} main store for members of the SL Frees and Offers group. Nodoka Vella, creator of the {amiable} brand, explains in her blog that she wanted to put this one-piece at Collabor88 but it wasn't finished. She put it instead in the main store with the group gifts, in different colors for the {amiable} group and shopping groups including SLF&O.

The dangly earrings with a boho vibe have a matching necklace that would get lost in all the angora. The set is a group gift from EmmaKae, a store that's new to me. Well truthfully a lot of stores are new to me and my freebie hunting is a quest of constant discovery. I hope I can show you some things that are new to you too.

I love the way Sintiklia does hairlines, and the Sun hair from the lucky boards at the main store is a cute example that matches my laid-back feeling du jour. I felt so lazy that I saw a comfy seat at the EmmaKae mainstore and snuggled in for a selfie.

Look what cropped up


I know, that's corny. At the Redeux event there are over 100 FREE gifts from SL's generous creators. A bumper crop, I'd say. The event ends at noon on the 21st, so I'll be brief, but I want to show you a few things I picked up.

I was so excited when I unboxed the event gift from Luas. A basic black turtleneck is such a wardrobe essential, and how often do you get a really nice basic piece free? Also the yummy nail appliers in autumn hues from CAZIMI were my reason for popping in.

Love me, love my dog xoxo


GIFTS: Ariskea ~ 89Hz ~ EMO-tions ~ Go&See ~ Nebulous Designs ~ -RC- ~ sugarjam ~

Nebulous Designs is the new creation of Yowahoshi, creator of the Eloise Baker clothing line. The prohibition dress Ava is wearing is a free gift for members of the Fabfree inworld shopping group. The dress reminds me of the house dresses my grammy wore, so I pieced together a montage of things that remind me of her including a little spaniel dog and the stuck-out tongue that featured in many of her photos. The title is her inscription on the back of a photo I've treasured from childhood. Thanks to Yowahoshi for this trip down memory lane!

To be or not to be...


Featuring GIFTS from CAROL G ~ D!va Hair ~ ENII Poses ~ Justice ~

I dressed Ava in pretty things because with all the Halloween costumes I started to forget what she looks like. But my new pose is perfect for a reflection on Vanity or the famous scene from Hamlet. I'll tell you about the clothes because that's why I'm here, and I'll let the photo speak for itself.

Ava's pretty dress is a FREE gift from Justice for members of the SL Frees and Offers group. Chiyey showed the lattice back of the Faith dress in an earlier post. The gift dress comes in three colors and "tight" and "loose" fits for a bunch of mesh body types.

The tattoo is a FREE group gift from CAROL G that you can find in the group notices.  The group gift is the Elegance tattoo in the red color in four tones from dark to light.

The hair is a FREE group gift from D!va Hair. The Aria hair includes a full fatpack of colors as well as styling options for the hair and flowers.

The pose, skull, and backdrop together are a $1L Halloween gift from ENII Poses with no group requirement.

Bewitching GIFTS from ~ CAZIMI ~ CLBlue ~ comet. ~ LEPUNK ~ LIVID ~ Moon Amore ~ No Cabide ~ Sintiklia ~ Wednesday ~

Is anything cuter than goat ghosts in jammies? This pair of cuties is the POISONME Hunt gift from comet. One ghostieblue is holdable and the other is a companion that follows your avatar. They move a little bit, and if they weren't ghosts I'd say they were breathing.

The Aradia dress from No Cabide has some bewitching features: a net overskirt, a buckled harness, a magical print, and a texture Hud. The texture Ava is wearing was more purple until I added a body light for the photo, and I think that means Materials is involved.

I had the witch hat in inventory, and when I checked the LIVID mainstore I saw it on the big shelf of group gifts. LIVID has a macabre theme, and I get the feeling it's not a seasonal thing. The entire shelf of group gifts could be used for Halloween or any time you fancy a dark look in fashion and furniture.

I feel a draft


Featuring FREE and $1L gifts from Arcane Spellcaster / Ak CreationsMEL ~ Moon Amore ~ PROMAGIC ~ Style Pantyhose  ~ VALLANI ~

I'm intrigued by all things bento in Second Life, and today I satisfied some of my curiosity by trying out a bento dress and bento hair. Project Bento added more "bones" to the Second Life avatar "skeleton", enabling more lifelike movements and creations that use them. It hasn't taken long for bento to make its way into the fashion world.

Arcane Spellcaster is the creator of the intriguing bento skirts that respond to the SL "wind". The bento Romina dress from Arcane Spellcaster is currently on the Marketplace for $1L for a limited time, so best hurry! In addition to the flirty skirt that flutters in the SL breeze, this pretty dress fits like a dream and has a texture changing Hud.

VALLANI has made a $1L gift of the bento animated Annika hair on the Marketplace. The hair comes with a color and styling Hud and a separate Hud to choose how much you want the hair to sway in the SL wind.

The pantyhose are a FREE Marketplace gift and very handy when the wind takes your skirt. The heels are a FREE Subscriber Gift that's still in the Hud, but the gift was put out in September, so again, best hurry! To accessorize, I'm wearing three FREE group gifts from MEL and a FREE POISONME Hunt gift from Moon Amore.

What luck! (Quelle chance!)


Featuring FREE gifts from CAROL G ~ Mosquito's Way ~ $1L gift from Flower ~ $50L Friday special from C'est la vie ! ~

A lucky thing happened on the way to making this post, and it wasn't a letter board or chair, as much as I frequent them. I'm joining the blogging team for SL Frees & Offers (SL F&O). I'm beyond excited at the chance to collaborate with this international team of bloggers! I've belonged to the SL F&O Group from my earliest Second Life days, I often blog the gifts this group sponsors, and I think we'll be a good fit for each other. So here's to a fortunate collaboration - may we all live long and prosper!

With much of SL heading into Autumn, I've been looking for jackets. This beige jacket with flower top is a dollarbie from Flower that I found on the Marketplace a while ago, and when I saw the free Carol boots from Mosquito's Way, I knew I had an outfit! Ava is wearing these pieces with shorts, but they would go well with a skirt or pants too.

Inner beauty


Featuring FREE group gifts and hunt prizes from CURELESS[+] ~ DISORDERLY. ~ Moon Amore ~

The piece de resistance here is the group gift from CURELESS[+] called Cadavre Exquis. When you wear this exquisite creation you use your body's alpha Hud to reveal its beautiful bones. The included Hud allows you to vary the colors of everything. I've used pastels but you can go decidedly darker.

The Fleur Crown and Wand is the group gift from DISORDERLY. It was created to harmonize with the CURELESS gift and you can change all the colors to match by way of the included Huds.

POISONME Hunt prizes from CURELESS[+], DISORDERLY., and Moon Amore complete Ava's look. DISORDERLY. and Moon Amore harmonized even their hunt prizes with the Cadavre Equis by means of color changing Huds.

The POISONME hunt is one you can do - it's small, hunt hints are provided, and the prizes are so worth it. I won some eye appliers from the lucky chair at CURELESS[+] while I was hunting, so I used them too.

It's about time


Featuring FREE tights from VANNIES ~ FREE trainers from VALE KOER ~

"I have never found a pair of tights I loved like that again." In Me Before You, Lou said that about her bumble bee tights.  I can't decide whether the Soft Cotton Knitted Tights from VANNIES are bumble bee tights or witch tights, but either way, "soft cotton" sounds perfect for a crisp autumn day.

So I pulled on the tights along with the trainers and (this is the embarrassing part) a t-shirt that's named "simple-top-Maitreya" that I got recently, but I can't remember where. If you recognize it, please drop me a note and I'll update my credits.

The bumblebee/witch tights use an applier Hud and the trainers come with a Hud so that you can change the colors every which way and convert them from flats to tippy-toes. I truly appreciate a well scripted Hud!

The tell-tale shoes


Featuring FREE shoes from G&D ~ FREE hair from MINA ~ and a FREE dress from SALTY !

Like the narrator in Poe's tale who heard the tell-tale heartbeat, Ava thought she'd cleaned up pretty well. If only she'd noticed the blood on her pumps a little sooner...

The Witch Halloween pumps are a FREE group gift from G&D. They're awfully cute and seasonal with all the blood, skulls, and spikes. You get a choice of colors with the included Hud.

I discovered the SALTY shop when I was gadding about the grid. The Seasons Change dress is a group gift from SALTY in the quintessential autumn print.

Ava's hair is a gift at the Hair Fair from MINA Hair. The Lily hair has a styling Hud and a color Hud with a selection of dip dyes. My flesh avatar is actually a redhead who hides from the sun under a hat, so this is a bit of art imitating life except for the bloodstained pumps.
