Shop and Hop at Poppy

 Hiya everyone! Tonight I am very happy to share some Halloween Shop and Hop gifts found on the Poppy region, one of 14 beautifully decorated regions (sims) bursting with talented designers offering seasonal sales items and thoughtful free gifts. There are gifts for male and female avatars, along with plenty of home decor so you can liven up your living space as easily as your wardrobe. I know I was lacking in the Halloween decoration department, and I prefer mystical to horror style, but saw a nice selection of both among gifts and sales selections. 

My first look is the -Pixicat- Brook Dress (Gift) in dark plummy purple with a flock of bats. The dress comes in sizes for Freya, Hourglass, Legacy, Perky, Maitreya, Flat, and Petite mesh bodies, with a HUD for the belt that offers 2 metals (gold and silver) plus the option to show or hide it. The high waist and short hem make me think that this would work as a tunic top if you layered some leggings beneath for cooler weather, since variety is fun :)

One really fun thing about Halloween is the costumes, which in SL can also usually double as exciting roleplay fashions. A great example is the Blackstone gift called Melissa Air-hostess - Fatpack seen here. The bodysuit with collar/tie and cuffs is provided in Kupra, Legacy, and Maitreya body sizing, with an adjustable cap. There is also a HUD so you can choose from 15 colors for the outfit and 4 metals. That is an impressive amount of variety to help you fly the friendly skies.

Our gift from Envious is called Unknown, so my guess is that it is hiding its identity with the camouflage pattern. The dress and separate sleeves are each included in sizes for Freya, Legacy, Maitreya, and Petite mesh bodies, both gathered and tied with loose bows. As you can see on the right, the strapless bodycon dress looks just as fantastic without the sleeves as with, so it is up to you every time you wear it which look suits your mood.

There are two generous gifts at the RIOT display, both of which contain sizes for male and female avatars, so be sure to pass the word along to the guys too. You can see the Strapped Shirts - Deathmask Moth on the left, with the Strapped Shirts - Lunar Moth gift on the right. Each contain Freya, Kupra, Legacy, and Maitreya sizes for the ladies along with a few men's sizes, each with a HUD that lets you choose from 35 colors for the straps and 14 metal tones as well as the ability to turn them on and off. I really like the tint of each pattern to reflect their moths, and the crescent moons and stars built into the design. 

My final look this evening is the Tachinni - Aurora Dress-Halloween S&H gift, in two versions called solid and slogan which are with (right) or without the bat on the back that says Trick or Treat across its wings. Both versions come in sizes for Freya, Isis, Hourglass, Legacy, Perky, and Maitreya bodies, with a HUD with 3 metal colors and 25 choices for the built in panties as well as an on/off option for those panties. I appreciate the soft red of the leather and how it looks very touchable. 

It was a nice weekend here, with pleasant weather and a wonderful trip to the farmers market for tasty food and visits with kind people. I hope you are all enjoying your day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!
