I'm feeling very Joan today

****Update: There is a freebie gift hunt going on RIGHT NOW, but only until Nov.23rd*****

Mad men may be on hiatus, but I'm channeling Joan in my fabu freebie outfits from Ingenue's store on Lo Lo. The pink hawaiian halter dress and silver hollywood dress (worn two ways!) are on the freebie board along with a couple of other things. The purple dress with the sash is a group gift. You can join the group by clicking the board right next to the dress.

Haute Style & Co.

I love Haute Style & Company. They have a very sophisticated style and beautiful textures. In the top photos are the front and back of their monthly freebie.

On Bryanna at left is a gown from the lucky chair. Sherpa models yet another lucky chair find. The lucky chairs change every 10 minutes and there are other items not shown here.

Pumpkin Hunt

Sorry I've been MIA folks. Life is what happens when you are making other plans. So there is a grid wide pumpkin hunt going on right now. I have only had time to hit Ivalde so far. It ends on November 2nd, so rush out. There are five pumpkins. These are just a few of the ones I found. I love the way Nef rocks the system skirt. I know a lot of people don't like them because they make your butt look big, but I think it's sexy. I like to think I've got a litte Joan from Mad Men going on. All of the dresses are from Ivalde pumpkins and so is the butterfly skin.

Nefaria of Ivalde is such a generous designer. Not only is she a genius with textures she is always giving things away. I have loved every item I have ever put on from this store.

The way the hunt works is that one of the pumpkins you find will give you a landmark another store on the grid. There are signs in each store that give you the option to stop searching and receive a landmark directly to the next place. That may be handy since the hunt is almost over.

***update: Nefaria Abel is taking some time off for carpel tunnel. Ivalde will continue to be open while she recovers. I urge everyone to shop, shop, shop at Ivalde and support this generous designer's store while she takes care of herself***

My go at Spike

So, I'm a pretty silly Buffy fan and I've been working on creating the avatars in Second Life. I decided to start with my favorite. I think the only free things in this picture are the cigarette (actually I'm pretty sure it's a blunt) and the skin, which was a Minnu freebie a while back. Yes I know about the controversy, and I feel as if the jury's out. I didn't go buy the skin, I already had it in my inventory. (This I realize may be akin to my rationalization for wearing my grandmother's fur coat even though I'm a vegetarian) Anyhow, I digress.
The hair is from Philotic Energy, the leather coat, and red shirt are from Casa del Shai. The shape is my own. At some point when I get a bunch of the avatars together, I'll figure out how to take a group shot.

For Josh who sent me a notecard

Hi Josh,

I didn't have your full avatar name to return your notecard. I have been offline for about a week. Atticus's hair is from Armidi. It isn't free, but it's worth it.

How can you miss me if I don't go away

Sorry I've been so horribly negligent. Real life has been sooo crazy. I was actually inspired by Ani_mations Drama Queen AO that is free until Monday 3/17. It's fantastic. In the top picture I am wearing a truth gift hair and the skin I got with my Fleur gift card. The tuxedo is the top of the dress by Celestial studios . The pants are a group gift from Veschi. The pumps are freebies from Maiteya.

In the middle picture I'm wearing the free dress from Ivalde and the valentine's day gift from Callie Cline Boa. I got the red sandals from Nyte n' Day a gossip girl event.

The bottom picture is the freebie outfit from Ingenue. The glasses and shoes were from the clover hunt at ETD.

Allure magazine aargh!

I have had zero time lately, but I wanted to pop in and talk about the Allure magazine article I just read. It was just one of those annoying one page blurbs, but it made me ***crazy***. The title of the article was 'game on' and the author, Beth Kwon, compared four games and their avatars with your ability to customize the Avatar adn how hip the clothing is. She chose, The Sims 2,Rock Band, WWE Smackdown vs. Raw and Mass Effect. Hellooooooo. Ok, so these are actual video games and not online games but, still, huh? I think I'm going to write to her with a link to this feed.
I am wearing The Ivalde freebie, The headpiece from the freebie burlesque outfit from YIP, the freebie Maitreya hair and the Fleur Vivant Buff feline skin I bought with my gift card.

Valentine's hunt et al

I joined in the Valentine's hunt for a bit. I admit to being kind of lazy. Not so much about the hunting, but waiting for things to rez makes me nutty. I did pick up a few cute things though. All of the hair in these photos in from Amorepacific. It's tricky to find, but worth it. Here is the link to creamy's post on SL*FreeStyle about how to find it.

In the top picture (reminding myself strongly of Lacey in the Rock of Love 2 roller derby challenge) I'm wearing the Vitamin Ci freebie from the hunt.

In the middle picture I'm wearing my own modified skins from Another Skin and the valentines freebie from CKS designs.

The bottom picture was my hunting costume. The dress is a freebie from Ivalde, minus the prim skirt. I'm wearing the pixel dolls belt , the cross and earings are an advent gift from Second Mirage. The skin is a group gift from MM skins and the glasses were a freebie from icings.

A conglomeration

Wow, ok, so now I have all this stuff and I'm lucky if I can figure out where I got it all, never mind if it is still available. Arg. I shall endeavor to do my best. The skin is my own attempt to modify an Eloh skin from Another shop. I didn't really do anything creative. I am really excited because I keep going back to the LeO skin because of the eyebrows, now I can use the same eyebrows with virtually any eyeshadow and lipstick combo and that's all I need really.

Top: Earings and necklace are from the new collection at Second Mirage. They were a generous gift for those of us who attended the fashion show (the whole collection actually) They aren't free, but the collection can be found at the store. It is an amazing collection. The blouse and corset are a group gift (part of a peasant dress) from Tuli. The hair is a group gift from Philotic Energy that I recolored red.

Middle: The hair is a Fashion Consolidated free gift from bewitched that is part of a fat pack. It is probably still available in the notices. the earings are color change and from Artilleri and the necklace is from Alienbear. Shirt is the undershirt layer alone of the Bianca latex dress.Mask is from Illusions . All should still be in Fashion Consolidated group notices. Latex pants are from Wrong.

Bottom: Shirt is three layers from the Bianca latex dress. Mainline unisex jeans from Callie Cline. The necklace is from Illusions. The little cupid doll is from Valentino All in Fash Con notices. Hair is from Philotic Energy.

Stop Thieves!

Bad people ripping off other people's skins and clothes is rampant. I'm at a protest today at a nasty little store that is selling stolen skins and blatently using stolen ads from them. If you want to come down and join the protest. This is he Slurl.
Laynie of Layniewear made this protest skin and eyes. The horrific little cupid is a Fashcon freebie from Valentino. The hair is a Fashcon freebie from Bewitched and the pearl necklace is from Bonita Popinjay. Sorry no Slurls on those, I will properly blog them when protest is over.

Frangipani Freebies

After seeing the post for the new Frangipani freebie hair, I went on over and found several really great freebie hairs all in fat packs of lots of colors. I am modeling the color 'blood' mwwahhhaaaahh in all mine.
My skin is one of the original Eloh free skins, Le0, from Another shop, it's one of my favorites because I love the eyebrows so much. I downloaded her files and now I'm trying to figure out photoshop. Der.

Things I wouldn't do in real life...

The Truth is out there

*Update* The tee shirts are by pushbutton industries and they can be found in the gift shop at Le Zoo sim.
Sorry I've been away so long kids. I had issues (*cough, didn't pay bill,cough*) with my DSL and I've been using EEK dial-up. Not so fun with SL. I just loved thes group gift hairs for the Truth update group. I recolored them in red, coz' I'm a redhead. (click on hair, choose edit, choose texture then color, pick color, viola!) These gorgeous skins are the freebie Chai skins for those who purchase Secondstyle Magazine in world you can find a kiosk at Le Zoo. I love these Tshirts. I know I got them free from a store in LeZoo, but I've having a mind fart as to wear, if anyone knows please write to me and let me know. The white zip pants were an advent gift from Wrong and the earing were an advent gift from Second Mirage.
