Halloween Hunt Treats

Hiya everyone! Tonight I am sharing some prizes from a two-store Halloween hunt I stumbled across, {Chaotic} and Shikkie's Stuff. They are on the same sim, but you will need to teleport between them to find all 10 prizes which are hiding in rats. There are 5 at each location, although I am pretty sure they were hiding at each other's store instead of their own :) Some of the rats are bigger than others, and there is a sign at each store that has a sample nearby. Shikkie's has a prize for the guys, and each store has a gift card among their prizes, so this hunt can be useful to all.


My first look is the Shikkie's Stuff - Handsy outfit, one of their handful of fun prizes. It consists of the top, skirt, panties, boots, and belly chain, each sized for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique mesh bodies. The black and white stripes are a strong contrast for the mysterious red handprints.


Another macabre look can be found in the gift called Shikkie's Stuff - Taking Over Me (Halloween). The dress, armbands, and shoes are each provided in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique. There is an Omega applier for the blood on the face and body, although the top and legs both seemed to apply to my legs so my upper body is free of blood. If the look is a bit too intense, you can omit the use of the applier and you will just have the splatter across the bodice of the dress. I really like those armbands and might wind up wearing them with other dresses in the future as well.


This charming look is two prizes, the dress and the necklace, which are both from {Chaotic}. The flirty Bat Dress includes sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine, with a HUD offering 6 color choices. The front and back panels are sheer in all hues, and did you notice the spikes on those straps holding them in place? Very wow! I added the {Chaotic} Spider Necklace to this look, which is another fun prize in a different rat. It is a triple strand choker with a crimson spider on its web, which dangles delicately in the front.


This prize from {Chaotic} is their Halloween Body Suit, and it comes in Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique mesh body sizing. There is also a HUD provided with 10 color choices, all with that petite skull and crossbones pattern. The back has more coverage than the front, but still very playful.


For my final look, I had this great pair of pants that I wanted to show you, but needed a top, so it was off to the marketplace I went :) The top is a free gift from Clock Works called Skull Top Black, and comes in system layers only so it was a perfect choice for my still experimenting with BOM. It is an older gift but still looks terrific, and you can edit it and tint it to change the color of the skull on the front. The pants are the prize from {Chaotic} called Halloween Pants, and they fit the bill in style with their 6 color/pattern choices via HUD. The pants are provided in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Ocacin, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Fine, Tonic Curvy, and Voluptuous mesh bodies. Each texture choice on the HUD has a matching solid color for the studded belt, which is built into the pants.

Today was a fairly blah day here, focused on household chores and mysterious sounds in my computer room here that might be tiny four footed pests of the rodent variety. Either that or I need to call Ghost Hunters because there's suddenly spirit activity ;) I have the house to myself for another couple of days, so I have been having a stern one-sided conversation with whatever it is. I hope you're all having a beautiful day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

More Manicures from Hello Dave

Hiya everyone! Tonight I couldn't resist sharing a few more of the nail palettes I found from the Hello Dave Halloween Hunt, since there are 18 total to find (of which I found 13, with Xan's assistance) and many colors and varieties that are worth seeing. Each applier is compatible with Maitreya, Slink, and Omega, with a special Maitreya button on the right that has 3 polish bottles in it. I am wearing my Maitreya hands today so I used those buttons for all of these looks, it was easy and very convenient :) I have been a fan of Hello Dave for such a long time now, and really enjoy the chance to find free palettes.


First we see the Hello Dave - Nail Appliers - Carved & Lit palette, a set of 5 designs with different carved jack o'lantern faces. They really do appear to have a glow to them, so the lit part of the name is as fitting as the carved.


You might recognize these funny faces from one of yesterday's looks, but appearing in a different color background. That was Jack O'Zombie, while this pink one is called Candy Zombie. They have similar stitched mouths and bloodshot eyes, not to mention the splashes of red that make it seem like they are having a rough day. You sure won't have a rough time applying these though, or enjoying them.


Another color variation can be admired today and compared to yesterday's Dark Fables - Hallowed. This palette with the ghostly white background is called Dark Fables - Sanctify, and has a spooky yet elegant vibe.


I was intrigued by the color combination in the Witching Deadly manicure seen here, as well as by the etched runes in the center of each design. If the style rings a bell from yesterday, that is because The Witching Banished was featured in hues of green. 


My final look of the night is another Dark Fables palette, this one being called October. It is an attractive shade of green as its background, and should be easy to match to plenty of seasonal outfits. There is a preview of all the palettes available at the mainstore in the folder with the map and notecards and such, just click the hunt sign.

It was a beautiful day out, and I was grateful to be out and about to enjoy it. My sleep was inconsistent and probably will be for the next few days, but I will do my best not to let it affect my blogging :) There are so many events happening in SL right now, and things I am looking forward to sharing, so please stay tuned and be sure to follow me on twitter, facebook, or whatever social media you prefer. (See tab up top for links) I hope you're all having a fantastic weekend, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

Halloween at Hello Dave

Hiya everyone! Tonight is a nail extravaganza, because I have several nail palettes to show you from Hello Dave from their Halloween hunt tradition. The mainstore is high in the air (3000+ m) above a magnificently decorated sim, Moochie, that you will be visiting after picking up your hunt kit from the mainstore. There are notecards and a map to guide you around the sim, and tell you what items you are looking for. Please note, I had Xan's help with this hunt (he is awesome at them!) and we both found it to be extremely difficult, in fact there are a few items out of the 18 that we never located yet. We have visited several times, spending multiple hours there, but I must admit it is beautiful enough that I do not mind being there ;) There are no hints, which adds to its challenging nature, so please be prepared for an intense search. I am a fan of teamwork as you can tell, and we are always in voice chat so we are not disrupting anyone else on the sim. Well, let's see a sampling of these hard-earned treats!


All of tonight's nail designs are shown on my Slink hands and the medium length of their standard shape. I mention that because tomorrow I will be showing more, but on Maitreya hands so you can see how well they work on those too :) These are the Hello Dave - Nail Appliers - Dark Fables - Hallowed, 5 designs on a HUD that works with Maitreya, Omega, and Slink. This one is a bit special since there is writing, there is a split palette with a left and right side of each button to get the lettering mirrored correctly (notecard included to explain). There are other varieties of the Dark Fables styling among our prizes too, which is worth noting.


These made me chuckle, as you can see our talented designer had considerable fun with the Jack O'Zombie nail appliers :) As with all of tonight's, the HUD is compatible with Slink, Maitreya, and Omega enabled nails/hands, and this set has a vivid yellow background for the zombie faces. 


I love the colors of this palette, which is a prize called Halloween Sorcery Sky nail appliers. 5 slightly different designs to mix or match, with a crescent moon on one of them (see my middle fingers) and plenty of stars and other symbols. 


Another fantastic hunt prize is the Hello Dave - Nail Appliers - The Witching Banished, in a radioactive looking shade of green with darkened edges and a line of letters down the center of each of the 5 designs. There are other background colors among the hunt prizes for this style as well.


My final look of the evening is the Haunted Pentacles nail appliers, 5 designs as with all of tonight's appliers. The stark colors are ideal for the sketched pentacles on three of the designs, and the other designs are solid colors that work well if you want to mix and match with accent nails.

Quick side note: sharp eyed readers may notice that you can almost see my shirt in the photos, so it is worth mentioning that I am still wearing the Trick or Treat Lane gift from Pink Cream Pie that I blogged yesterday. It is certainly appropriate with the seasonal nails, so I was happy to leave it on.

The weekend is here, and I am ready for a busy Saturday :) I am battling a headache right now, but with a little luck it will clear up before I have to go out in the morning. It's moving around, started in the front behind my eyes and worked its way back to my upper neck almost, while still clinging to the temples. I will be glad to kiss it goodbye. Meanwhile I hope you all have a wonderful weekend planned, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

Trick or Treat Lane

Hiya everyone! Tonight we take a stroll down Trick or Treat Lane, a terrific annual event that has a little something for everyone. There are spooky exclusive offers at great prices, and each display has a "trick" or "treat" waiting as a gift. The treats are when the gift is on top of the hay bales in full view, and the tricks mean you have to peek inside their booth to find the gift instead. Still fairly easy, as the booths are not huge, just have your camera controls ready to peep behind things or up high or down low, etc. :) The tricks and treats are free with no group needed to claim them, and the event is open until the beginning of November. 


My first look is the (BYRNE) Bloody Mary Dress, a one shouldered mini with a touch of tulle on the right hip. It does have a sinisterly dripping stripe spiraled around it, I wonder what we've been up to? The gift includes Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique mesh body sizes.


This sassy outfit is a gift from Les Sucreries de Fairy, simply called Tricks and Treats Halloween gift. It is a single mesh piece in a Maitreya size, with shorts and top joined by a studded strip down the front. I really like this style, and can't wait to add various accessories to have extra fun with it.


This tube top with the ominous image on its front is the gift from zOOm called "Lil Monster". It includes Freya, Hourglass, and Maitreya sizes, so it should cover the most popular trio of mesh bodies. I have paired it here with the Delizio jeans in black from the marketplace, one of my favorite freebies on there because of their versatility.


Another seasonal treat is this top from Pink Cream Pie called Kat Tee [Trick or Treat Gift]. It is provided in Freya, Hourglass, and Maitreya sizes, in a pale orange with a spiderweb pattern throughout. The black jeans from Delizio go really well with this top too :)


My final look this evening is a closer view of my nails, which are a Trick or Treat gift from Dark Passions and their Koffin Nails division. Their treat bag contains the fatpack of Pumpkin Grunge appliers for Maitreya, Omega, and Slink. Each offers 6 designs which are 3 different jack o'lantern faces in orange on black and the reverse. I am wearing my Slink hands here because I love the ability to change each individual nail, enabling me to show you all 6 designs at once with ease. 

It was a busy, decent day, with a few stops after getting my ingrown toenails taken care of. I treated myself to a certain blended ice cream dessert, which I usually eat in about 3-4 little servings over time. It was a refreshing way to make my day a little better, and such a tiny portion is a reasonable splurge. I hope you're all having a fantastic day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

Fenix Event

Hiya everyone! Tonight I have several exciting gifts to show you from the October round of the Fenix Event, most of which do not need a group tag at all to claim. There is one there for the TeleportHub.com group ($10L fee to join) so I picked that up to show you as well. I believe this round is open until the end of the month, and filled with spooky offers with which to treat yourself.


First we have the IMPACTOS MODAS - DRESS COM HUD, a sleek strapless mini with 4 textures to choose from. The gift includes sizes for Freya, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique mesh bodies, and there is no group tag needed to claim this goodie.


ISHARA is offering a generous gift of a full outfit called Kelly Model. It consists of the tank top and pants each in standard mesh sizes plus Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP versions, with matching shoes for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink High feet. I love the slender chain belt attached to the patchwork style pants, and the heart pattern on both top and pants is a cheerful touch.


This next gift comes from Raven Designs, their lovely Laced Tank Top & Jean Shorts set. Each part is provided in standard mesh sizes as well as Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP mesh body fits, with a HUD that lets you choose from 6 colors for the top, 8 denim shades for the shorts. Mixing and matching is fun and easy with HUDs like this, so I am always a fan.


The Sissy Bar has a free gift for each of us, as there are male and female versions available of this simple shirt with their logo on it. The ladies' version includes standard mesh sizes plus Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP versions. No group is needed for this gift, just give it a click. I kept on the Raven Designs shorts from the previous gift to show you this top, however the trim of the pockets is poking through so I would probably choose a different bottom the next time I wear it.


My final look is the only one that needs a group tag to claim, and it is the TeleportHub.com group rather than the event's group for this one. It comes from the New Line Store and is right at the landing area, a playful treat called Witch Set Gift. It includes the dress and boots in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique, with a coordinated witch hat. There is even a HUD included, 3 choices for each - dress, boots, and hat band. One thing I noticed is that the dress must have sleeves that have been made transparent (erased in a way) so are there as an alpha (?) so my lower arms are making strange shadows against the dress in certain poses. This is only in poses where my arms are tight against my body, and that is more noticeable with the curvy Hourglass shape. You might not experience this, so don't worry if you see something odd in my photo. I really like the styling of the boots, like Mary Jane shoes with built in socks.

Today was not a great day, but I am choosing to look at it as there is much room for improvement for tomorrow :) Yesterday's dental visit was easier than I expected, since the tooth that needed the filling re-replaced was already/still prepped and needed very little done other than the filling itself. The goofy gas still had me drowsy and wifty as usual though, so I was safest taking the evening off. I just watched a real bummer of a hockey game, so I am looking forward to immersing myself into SL later and taking my mind off things. I need a peaceful sim with animals to visit ;) I hope you're all having a fantastic day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

Join the Masquerade

Hiya everyone! Tonight I have more prizes for you to take a peek at from the Gothic Masquerade Hunt which are hidden inside golden masks. You can search for the hidden ones for $1L, or buy the prize for $25L from the hunt object near the sign at each store. The website will help you with landmarks, hints, and some preview photos so you can see what your rewards will be. The hunt lasts until the end of the month, so you have plenty of time :) I will also be showing off a sexy little something tonight that is a more limited offer, a Saturday Sale item from Entice that is deeply discounted until the 17th.


My first look this evening is a striking gown from Mishmash Fusion, their ~*MF*~ Something True Gown - Gothic Masquerade. There is a mens prize in this mask as well as the ladies gift seen here, and our dress comes in sizes for eBody, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and a standard version. 


Next we have a versatile outfit from the mask at La Bella Boutique, called {LBB} Salem Witch Outfit. The dress and boots are each provided in Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizes, and there is a HUD with 10 color choices for each as well. The soles of the stiletto boots stay that daring red, and I was intrigued by the spiderweb pattern in the front of the boots. The dress hugs our curves before ending in a jagged hemline that looks great in any color.


I am so pleased by the assortment of gowns among these hunt prizes, such as the compelling Katrina from Changed Seasons. The gift includes sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP mesh bodies, with that sexy strapless style that is laced up the back and sports a modest train.


The Sissy Bar has a beautiful offering for this hunt too, with advanced lighting effects for that extra touch. It is named (TSB) Gothic Masquerade after the hunt, and includes the deep blue gown in 3 classic sizes (S,M,L), 3 fitmesh sizes (S,M,L), plus versions for Freya, Venus, Maitreya, Ocacin, Hourglass, Physique, and Voluptuous mesh bodies. There is also a tall and elegant mask in matching blue that reminds me of a phoenix rising. I added a small light to my room to really show off the advanced lighting texture, and you will need to have materials enabled on your viewer to see it in all its glory. 


We may be deep into the autumn/Halloween season, but Entice would like to remind us with their Saturday Sale offers this week that you can enjoy a sexy bikini at any time of year :) That's why there are beaches and pools all over SL, no matter what the calendar says. This is their daring original mesh Beach Baby in Peach, and it is ready to turn heads in sizes for Freya, Hourglass, and Maitreya mesh bodies for just $75L until Thursday. Now maybe peach isn't your favorite color, well you should still visit and take a look at the many other varieties to be found on sale for $99L (regularly $300L!) in 8 fantastic colors and patterns. There is even a sale on the fatpack, which changes via HUD and includes 2 bonus prints for a total of 10 choices, $299L until the 17th which is marked down from $599L regular price. So many savings to be had, do not miss out!

Whew, what a wild few days it has been here...I have an appointment to get this filling re-replaced tomorrow, so no blog post tomorrow evening. I will be back the following day though, probably with really sore gums again and eating all the soft mushy foods I can find. Gumline fillings seem to be a problem for me, aren't I lucky? LOL! It will all be fine before I know it, and tomorrow will be a nitrousy breeze. I have a hockey game to look forward to watching in the evening too, even if I am still a bit wifty. I hope you're all having a beautiful day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

Gothic Masquerade Hunt

Hiya everyone! Tonight I have some $1L hunt prizes to show you, from the Gothic Masquerade Hunt. This is a great time of year for this particular theme, isn't it? The prizes are hiding inside golden masks, and you have the option at each store to purchase the prize for $25L (same hunt object but at the sign) without hunting if you prefer, rather than $1L for the hidden one. The website will guide you with landmarks, hints, and some preview photos so you know what you can find inside the mask. These particular prizes really called for a special touch, so I am also enjoying the Designer Showcase exclusive offer from LIVIA. Just take a look at my nails to see those :) Don't worry, there is a better look and all the details at the end, as usual when I feature nail polish.


My first look comes from Go Frock Yourself, their GFY-Halloween Tied Shirt with its handy texture HUD. There are 7 different patterns you can select, most on a black background but the orange one I wore on the left above is a standout too. The blouse is provided in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique mesh bodies, and with those long luxurious ties in front will look as lovely with your favorite skirt as they do with these cozy Delizio jeans (marketplace freebie). 


Can you see behind my mask? That is what our gift from The Bold Llama T-Shirt Co. asks, above a beautifully detailed image of a black and white masquerade mask. The deep teal tank top provides a very pretty backdrop for the graphics, and is provided in standard mesh sizes as well as eBody, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Ocacin, Hourglass, Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine mesh body sizing.


If purple is your passion, be sure to claim the prize from AdelleArts which is simply named GM Hunt Prize. It consists of the flowing gown in fitmesh standard sizes plus Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink versions, as well as Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink Mid shoes, plus the necklace and mesh lace mask. This is such a generous, complete look that gives you the option of wearing any or all of the pieces to dress it up as much as you prefer.


Another designer who was inspired to create a look with a mask is NUTS Inc, actually two looks since this prize contains a male outfit with mask too. This is their Javera Outfit, a strapless mermaid gown with lots of lace and a corset type bodice. Their HUD lets you deliver just the sizes you need, as there are buttons to click for classic, Belleza, Maitreya, Slink, and TMP brands that each contain all relevant sizing plus the matching mask and necklace. Another button will give you shawls for Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP, but this looks fantastic with or without the shawl as you can see above. The men can click the picture of their suit on the main HUD for their delivery HUD and then choose their sizing from there.


Do you have LIVIA's Mix It Nails yet? If you do, I would love to suggest you visit the Designer Showcase event this round for the Mix It compatible Dark Side Pointed Polish HUD. It offers a wonderful 22 designs to mix and match, including several negative space looks (with your natural nail showing through the artwork) that are ideal for this season. The polish HUD is just $149L and only found at Designer Showcase. I have more news for you too though, if you do not have the Mix It Nails yet...they are on sale for the entire month of October, 25% off both at the mainstore and on the marketplace. You can purchase the pointed or ballerina shape individually, or grab the fatpack of both. I even linked the marketplace listings for each in that previous sentence for you, with the discounted price, so what are you waiting for? :) 

It has been a whirlwind of a weekend, and I suspect my week is going to be a bit wild too. My houseguest will be here until late tomorrow (Monday) evening, and it has been a terrific visit so far. But remember that filling I had to have replaced a couple of weeks ago, the day after my dental cleaning visit? I was flossing last night and it decided to fall out again. I am not an aggressive flosser, and the filling is at the gumline of a crown so it's weird to begin with. Clearly it's even weirder that the stupid thing won't stay put, but I am chalking it up to my generally bad luck when it comes to my teeth. Once I know when I'm going to have the filling re-replaced, I will let everyone know which day will be spent in a nitrous haze and not blogging ;) Oh well, I hope you're all having a fun weekend with a happy new week ahead, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!
