Call me Old Fashioned


I hope you can make out the texturing on Ava's little black dress, because it's lovely. The Lina dress is the exclusive Womenstuff Hunt gift at BlackRose. I added the beautiful antique brooch that's currently a Marketplace cheapie and the coordinating clutch that's a new group gift at Belle Epoque. You have until the end of November to do the Womenstuff Hunt.

Happy Hunting!

The light is coming


Only one short month until the winter solstice, the shortest day of the year (depending on where you are on the globe). As the days grow shorter I crave the light more and more and begin to look forward to the turning point.

The Angel of Christmas is a wonderful symbol of the coming of the light, and the original outfit from ArisArisB&W is a beautiful way to celebrate it. Included in the outfit are the gown, shawl, halo, bento gloves, and wings in both animated and static versions. The Angel of Christmas outfit* is a special promo price of $99L on the Marketplace.

The only thing Ava is wearing that's not included in the outfit is the Angela hair, a FREE group gift from Sintiklia. The Angela gift hair comes in bento fitted and unrigged resizable versions, in a full fatpack of colors, with a styler HUD, optional bangs, and options for tint and Materials.

Let it snow (reality)


When the weather outside is frightful, Ava really ought to zip up her puffer! But first, let's take a look at a Womenstuff Hunt exclusive from Robot Dolly.

Let it snow (fantasy)


I don't mind the snow, so long as I can stay cozy inside with a good book and a glass of wine. Ava can live out my fantasy, thanks to the FREE gifts I've hunted down. Meanwhile I'll endure the winter weather along with everyone else.

Ava is relaxing on the "Hunter West" Sitting Chest, which is the FREE SL Frees & Offers Hunt gift from CIRCA. The sitting chest includes the pillows and throw, the stack of books, and the hurricane lamp she'll need to read them if the power goes out.

Her warm Knitted Dress & LegWarmers are a FREE Womenstuff Hunt gift from !!smesh.

The pretty bento toe rings are a FREE SL Frees & Offers Group gift from Candy Crunchers, and the reading glasses are a FREE group gift from AsteroidBox.

Get ready!


~ FREE at the Gacha Garden! ~

Before long much of Second Life will become a winter wonderland in synch with the Northern Hemisphere.  I found some FREE gifts at the Gacha Garden to help get ready for the season.

The facial piercings are actually four separate components that Ava is wearing together. The Balian Set, the gift from Supernatural, comes in gold and silver and has a color HUD to change the stones. The piercings are unrigged, but they fit Ava's Catya head with only a tiny adjustment.

The "fur" cape is the gift from Since1975. Ava is wearing the cape with the included turtleneck, and it can be worn with other clothing whenever the suggestion of cold shoulders makes you shiver. The top and cape have an included color HUD and a pose that I'm using for the photo.

The warm knit hat is the gift from SEmotion and has a resize HUD to fit the hat to your head and hairstyle.

Pumpkin spice everything



~ SL Frees & Offers Hunt gifts, Group gifts, and more ~

The SL Frees & Offers Hunt gift from Aleutia is the chic dress and scarf combo you see Ava wearing. The Logan dress and infinity scarf are separates, and the scarf has a texture changing Hud with lots of patterns to coordinate with this dress and more. I'm in love with the gorgeous textures and beautiful sleeve details! Like other Aleutia clothing, the Logan dress is sized for the Maitreya body.

I found the amazing coordinating shoes at the ArisArisB&W tent at the Boho Culture fair. I adore the fabulous details on the Gaiety Clogs, from the chunky sole to the fringe and tassels. You will pay $1L to scoop these up.

I dipped into the row of free group gifts at ::K:: for the tote bag, and I hit the Midnight Madness board at .Olive. for the Peach hair. No group is needed for the Midnight Madness and Lucky Boards at .Olive.. Ava's Union Earrings are a first anniversary gift from Aurealis that's available once you join the store's free group.

The SL Frees & Offers Hunt has some décor items and clothing for male avatars too. I've decorated the front door with the SL Frees & Offers Hunt gift from Once Upon Time. Called "Autumn Deco", the gift is a whimsical grouping of pumpkins and winter birds.

While I was hunting I noticed a LOT of the stores had SLF&O group gifts on the wall. [CIRCA] is one of them, with a gift of  "The Great North" Autumn Wreath for members of the SLF&O group. You don't need to join the SLF&O group to do the hunt, but you'll want to join it for the group gifts.

Scroll to the bottom for the rest of the awesome FREE décor.

Some things are seasonless


~ SL Frees & Offers Hunt gifts + Group gifts ~

I've hunted down some seasonless wardrobe classics in the SL Frees & Offers Hunt. This is gorgeous, top-line clothing from the very generous creators, and like fine wine, it will age well.

The hunt gift from Masoom is the Nina dress in classic navy blue. This fabulous dress has an asymmetric front opening that's buttoned up where it matters and includes an optional panty.

Ava's sparkly demi parure jewelry set is the hunt gift from Chop Zuey. The Fleur Delique set has a texture change Hud with lots of options. The color Ava used is pinker than it appears in the photo - it's lost some color to due to lighting.

The "Iris" shoes, the hunt gift from Ch's, have tons of color options with the included Hud. These match the navy blue of Ava's dress but for materials differences.

Ava is also wearing the Unicorn Skin Nails from CAZIMI and the Winter Unicorn Ring from Zuri Jewelry. Like everything I've mentioned, these fabulous gifts are to be had for a little hunting in the SL Frees & Offers Hunt.

Wings for dreaming



Featuring: First Annual SL Frees & Offers Hunt Gifts and a group gift

The elegant silk kimono Ava just slipped into is the FREE SLFO Hunt gift from Belle Epoque. As a dressing gown I think it hearkens back to the glamourous golden days of early Hollywood. Like other Belle Epoque clothing, the Kanemi kimono is sized for the Maitreya body.

Ava's Lady Moth tattoo is the FREE SLFO Hunt gift from Shinu Made, a shop that's new to me. I'm happy the hunt introduced me to it, for the décor as well as the tattoos.

Ava's hair is the FREE new VIP group gift from TRUTH Hair. The Ciara hair has a full fatpack of colors and several styling options including a back braid and a bun. I love a hairstyle that fits around elf ears!

The lanterns filled with mini light strings are the FREE winter group gift from <keke>, and I adore their pure lines. Can you believe all this wonderfulness is FREE? Many thanks to the SL creators.

SLFO Hunt: Hilly Haalan




~ First Annual SL Frees and Offers Hunt gifts from Hilly Haalan and Persefona ~

The autumn leaf hidden at Hilly Haalan has not one but four gifts inside. Ava is wearing one of the gifts, the Naomi Mini Dress Outfit, which includes the dress, bracelet, earrings, necklace, clutch, and two items not shown, shoes and an arm cuff. A Hud gives you 15 different textures for the dress. For me, the piece de resistance is the clutch, which has a resize script and includes the hold pose. I love it!

The autumn leaves swirling around Ava are the SLFO Hunt gift from Persefona.

The First Annual SL Frees and Offers Hunt runs from November 3rd through the 18th.
