Into The Woods

 Hiya everyone! Tonight's post features free gifts and a hunt prize from the Into The Woods cart sale and hunt, brought to you by I Heart The Cart. There are 24 carts with seasonal offers, $10L sales items, and free gifts in a log with the words "free gift" carved onto them. There is also a $2L hunt in the region with prizes from all the participating designers hiding inside autumn leaves. The cart sale and hunt run through the entire month, so you have plenty of time to enjoy :)


I started the evening with the A.R Jack O'Lantern Full Fit! from Artistic.Rage. This free gift includes the tank top and shorts each in Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizes, with flats (shoes) that fit Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink flat feet. It all matches wonderfully, and is delightful for the season.


If you really want to get into the cute aspect of this time of year, be sure to claim the free gift from the Harambee-Gwassi charity store's display. It is their Funny Pumpkins jewelry set, and it includes two pairs of earrings (one with a single pumpkin and one with two as seen on my left ear above) and two necklaces with a small pumpkin or a full sized one which is the one I am sporting here. The pumpkins all have a ghost peeking out and wearing the lid of the carved pumpkin as a hat. They are all unrigged and can be adjusted as necessary.


I got a chuckle out of the free gift from The Bold Llama T-Shirt Co. which is their DON'T TOUCH ME Tee. The front says "FREE HUGS just kidding DON'T TOUCH ME", a sentiment I may have adopted when the pandemic started ;) It looks great in white on the burgundy tank top, which is provided in standard mesh sizes along with eBody, Freya, Isis, Venus, Legacy, Maitreya, Ocacin, Hourglass, Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine mesh body sizing. 


My favorite hunt prize (not that I usually play favorites, but sometimes I can't resist!) is also from The Bold Llama T-Shirt Co. It is called GROOVY GHOST Tee, and comes in the same sizes as their gift in my prior photo. The image on the front is a beloved hippie ghost surrounded by flowers and wearing a cute headband. I adore it! Another treat that caught my eye is the free gift from {Poeme} called "Nevermore" Pendant Set. There are male and female sizes and they can be resized, so our raven pendant is quite versatile. I'm wearing both tank tops with the white pair of jeans from the Delizio fatpack we can find for free on the marketplace, whose 9 colors all come in system/BOM layers and appliers for Maitreya and Omega.


For my final look of the night, I wanted to share a closer view of the free gift from .:: LUNA ::. Body Art which is their Mix Halloween - Nails. There are 5 seasonal designs on each applier, which are for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink nails. There are skulls and spiders in addition to the cats and carved jack o'lantern faces you see here, so a little something for any mood.

I hope you're all having a nice day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

Haunted Nightmare Hunt

 Hiya everyone! Tonight I explored a terrific hunt called Haunted Nightmare by Pretty Kitty Designs, spread across two sims and with prizes ranging from $0L - $100L. The free ones are in happy smiling jack-o-lanterns, while the others have a more sinister jagged toothed grin, and there are examples on the sign at the landing point. Follow the purple lighted arrows on the ground to reach the teleport to the hunting grounds, then be prepared to wander through haunted woods, creepy buildings, even a cave with a maze system that also contains some of the prizes. I suggest you take your time and look in every area you can find :) There is a warning for photosensitive conditions like epilepsy, as there are flashing lights from the thunderstorms that add to the spooky ambiance, so I figured that is worth mentioning. 


Applique` Chic has several free prizes waiting for us, like the AC: Howling Glitter Ghostie #1 dress I'm enjoying here. It comes in Freya, Isis, Venus, Legacy, Maitreya, Ocacin, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, Tonic Fine, and Voluptuous mesh body sizes, with a 6 texture HUD. As you can see on the right, there are a couple of choices without the ghosts on them, for lots of variety. I also added the AC: Howling Glitter Necklace #6 to accessorize the look, and this free prize consists of the unrigged necklace and a HUD with 11 colors for the gemstones. Even their AC: Howling Glitter Heels #5 prize is free, so if you find that one you'll receive sizes for Belleza, Legacy, Maitreya, and Slink high feet as well as an 11 color HUD so you can easily match the other prizes or anything you prefer.


Another happy pumpkin contains their AC: Howling Glitter Words #3 dress, a free prize you won't want to miss out on :) The dress is the same style as the previously shown one so it comes in the same set of sizes, and has a similar 6 texture HUD with words like boo, eek, spooky, and Happy Halloween written on the bodice. It goes wonderfully with the necklace and heels too, which I'm sure is by design.


One more irresistible free prize from Applique` Chic can be seen here, their AC: Howling Glitter Sayings #4 dress. The sizes are the same as the first two seen tonight, with a 6 texture HUD for that bonus touch of versatility :) The one without the wording, seen on the right above, is a navy blue and black combo whose glitter gives it a fantastic galaxy-like appearance. I had so much fun with these gifts and their HUDs, as I'm sure you can tell!


Next we explore prizes from another designer with several free offerings among the many jack-o-lanterns, !!REV IT UP!! DESIGNS. Each one I found had the original Halloween themed dress and a plain version whose top is solid black, so you can enjoy that one year-round :) I am wearing the Black Magic 5 Plain on the left, and Black Magic on the right. I really like both skirt textures! Each version of this dress is provided in eBody Curvy, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine sizes.


My final look this evening is two more prizes from !!REV IT UP!! DESIGNS. The lovely style on the left is Black Magic 1, and I'm wearing Black Magic 6 Plain on the right. I am drawn to the celestial pattern on these fluttery skirts and suspenders, and you can see most of the back is revealed just like the front. What other treats will you claim at Haunted Nightmare?

The autumn weather is definitely here, and I had to switch from ceiling fan to small room heater in a hurry yesterday. Today is much the same, with more rain the next few days that keep things cooler. I have been looking into a few hunts in SL that are mostly Halloween themed, so you can expect the next several posts to have lots of spooky fashions sprinkled in :) One of my favorite things about this time of year is the warm flattering colors of fall, so they should be making lots of appearances too. I hope you're all having a lovely day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

More Fab Free Group Goodies

 Hiya everyone! Tonight we have several more gifts for the FabFree in SL group to see, as there are dozens and dozens available at any given time thanks to the myriad of participating designers. They are generous enough to offer free gifts for all members of the FabFree group, and you can find the list of gifts (plus info on countless freebies and bargains!) on the FabFree blog. My habit when blogging them is to go for the slightly older ones, so you can catch those before they are swapped out :) There is something for just about everyone here, which has made a lifelong fan out of me. 


For my first look this evening, I am wearing the {Poeme} Esprit Sky Paisley Dress gift for FabFree. There are sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique mesh bodies included. The paisley print looks terrific in shades of blue, and I like the way the strapless style is complemented by the high-low hem and solid colored belt built in.


Next we head to ART & FASHION to claim their DOWHATYOULOVE MINI DRESS. With your FabFree group tag open, look for the sign of this gift among many treats for various groups (keep an eye out for the rainbow colored FabFree logo) and right click to pay $1L, which is automatically refunded while the gift is delivered. The dress comes in Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine body sizes. It says "DO what YOU love" on the front, which is a wonderful idea and something we all should aspire to. The opening in the front is mirrored by an even longer keyhole opening in the back, flirty fun on a vibrant orchid shade.


As a huge fan of 80s music, I have an extra reason to love the Girls Just Wanna Have Fun Dress gift from Tastic. Its name matches the words on the front, a reference to the Cyndi Lauper song of the same name :) The gift includes eBody Reborn, Freya, Isis, Venus, Legacy, Perky, and Maitreya mesh body sizes. The plaid skirt is connected to the sleeveless top with slender X's, so playful! There's a gift for the guys here too, but they are summer shorts so they don't have the same saying on them or anything ;)


Blink2Wink is offering their FabFree Rawr Dress as their thoughtful gift for the group :) The pink and white zebra striped front and back have solid pink bands on the sides that perfectly match the ruffle at the hem. We receive sizing for eBody Reborn, Freya, Hourglass, Legacy, Maitreya, and Petite mesh bodies in this group gift.


My final look of the evening is the special gift from :: D!vine Style :: called Sabrina - Bare back top and skirt. The two pieces can be worn separately if you wish, and each fit Freya, Isis, Kupra, Legacy, Perky, Maitreya, Petite, Hourglass, and Hourglass Petite bodies with a standard fitted size provided for classic avatars too. The halter style of the shirt is very flattering, and I cannot resist denim like this dark dyed mini skirt. I guess it's something about the distinctive stitching on most denim fabrics that catches my eye. 

How was everyone's weekend? I got some rain from the hurricane remnants, but it was the wind that knocked my power out three times since we have a lot of old trees in the area that like to fall and take power lines with them. I did go to the farmers market on Saturday, and met a precious corgi puppy who is 4 months old and a very friendly little girl ♥. Then she got to meet a Great Dane, lol, who lifted its front paw and booped her on the head very gently. So silly! I hope you're all having a pleasant day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

Fabulously Free

 Hiya everyone! Tonight I visited some more FabFree designers' stores, and picked up several terrific group gifts for us to enjoy. The FabFree in SL group is always free to join, and is the inworld presence of the wonderful blog by the same name. I've been a fan since my earliest days in SL, and have always found the blog and group to both be incredibly useful for all residents. 


First I went to KingbalStores and claimed their KS OUTFIT SHILO SKIRT&TOP FAT PACK gift for FabFree. The top and skirt are each included in standard mesh sizes as well as Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine mesh body sizes. Then we have a HUD that offers 6 textures each for top and skirt, with 2 colors (black or white) for each belt buckle. The teal blue on the left above has tiny polka dots, and all the others are solid colors. 


YoU by GeMyles is offering the charming Yasmine Denim Dress & Boots free for all FabFree group members, just right click the sign and pay $1L which is immediately refunded while the gift is delivered. The dress and peeptoe boots each come in Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique mesh body sizes, with patch panties to fit Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique bodies. There is also a HUD for the denim portion with 10 color options, all of which coordinate very well with the black lace and boots. Don't you love the way the lace hemline shows off one cheek in the rear?


Next I visited the [ANGEL PINK] store and claimed their {AP} Yanca Set Colors. This FabFree gift has a top and skirt linked together to wear at once, in sizes for Freya, Hourglass, Legacy, Maitreya, and Petite mesh bodies. Then we can add the laced up thigh-high boots in the same sizes, an adjustable gold fringe necklace, and a black bag with built in hold pose. I really appreciate the accessories and how they truly complete the look :)


My final look of the evening is from Tiar, where you can find their "grumpycat love is in the air" top for women and a men's version with similar design. The front says "Love is in the air, try not to breathe" above and beneath the image of the adorable grumpy cat. There are Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP sizes provided. I paired it with the blue pair from the Delizio fatpack of jeans found for free on the marketplace, my favorite go-to when I need versatile bottoms to share a top. 

It was a nice evening at my parents' place for dinner, and it wasn't even raining during the couple of hours I was there. Tomorrow looks to be a repeat of today with showers off and on for a few hours at a time, nothing that should interfere with my going to the farmers market. There is a chance that some of the vendors won't show up though, if they are coming from an area with worse weather or simply don't expect enough of a crowd to make it worth their while to prepare food that might not get sold. Some sell their items frozen like prepared meals and soups, but the bakers who offer fresh pastries would not do so well with leftovers. I hope you all have a beautiful weekend ahead, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

Alias! Gifts and Prizes

 Hiya everyone! Tonight we are visiting Alias!, who offer group gifts for several different groups and have lucky chairs that do not need any particular group tag to win. I had initially visited at the start of a FabFree group gift spree, lol, but immediately won a couple of lucky chair prizes so I stuck around :) I claimed another group gift too, for Mesh Body Friends which is free to join. The gifts and prizes are mostly full outfits with shoes, for which I am very grateful as it makes it much easier to get dressed with matching footwear. The idea of sharing FabFree group gifts is still in my plans for the next post, just a slight sidetrack in the best way.


My first look this evening is the Alias! Bloom Sky outfit, the FabFree group gift that led me to their wonderful store :) The dress is provided in sizes for Freya, Isis, Hourglass, Kupra, Legacy, Perky, Maitreya, and Petite mesh bodies, while the coordinated shoes will fit Freya, Isis, Kupra, Legacy, Maitreya, and Slink high feet. The bare shouldered dress has a great floral pattern with solid mauve panel down the front, just the right hue to match both the flowers and the shoes. 


With the free Mesh Body Friends group tag active, you can also claim their Alias! Sweet Love Grey outfit. The dress comes in standard mesh sizes as well as Freya, Isis, Venus, Legacy, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique body versions, while there are panties beneath that fit Freya, Isis, Venus, Legacy, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique bodies. Then we can add the matching shoes in Belleza, Maitreya, or Slink high feet sizing. The pale pink shade looks lovely against the grey, and aren't those hearts on the overskirt cute?


It was wonderful timing to win their Alias! Maple w/Blue Jeans prize from one of the lucky chairs, right in the beginning of fall :) The tank top and capris are each included in standard mesh sizes along with Eve Pulpy, Eve Slim, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine mesh body sizes. Then we can add the strappy shoes in Belleza, Maitreya, or Slink high sizing. The top has a HUD to tint the texture, and there are several buttons with different background colors of the same yellow maple leaf print that I really like. The cuffed capri jeans have a belt built in with extra chains draped along each hip, very flirty!


The lucky chairs offer "?" wildcard rounds where anyone can have a seat and win, so I genuinely cannot remember if I got this Alias! RockSkull Black/Purple from sitting for a D or a ?. I mention that just so you know that if you see that question mark, you can win no matter what your legacy name begins with, letter or number :) This gift consists of the top in what I call the lucky 13 of mesh sizes (5 classic, 5 fitmesh, Belleza, Maitreya, Slink) and low rise jeans in 5 classic sizes and a fitmesh version for classic avatars, plus Freya, Isis, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique mesh body sizing. There are also shoes for Slink flat feet, not shown as I am not wearing a Slink body at the moment. You can pair this fun outfit with any shoes you wish.


My final look this evening is the Alias! Cherry Flower Dress lucky chair prize. Its short sleeveless dress comes in standard mesh sizes plus versions for Flow, Maitreya, Slink, and TMP mesh bodies, with pants as appliers for Maitreya, Omega, and Slink. The pants are lace trimmed capris that also have a wide lace waistband that is hiding beneath the dress, lots of nice details to be found in this outfit as with all of our gifts and prizes :) When you hear "pink floral" to describe the pattern, you might be picturing something much lighter and on the cute side, however this can still appeal to those who prefer their clothing to be less girlie. 

I have been keeping an eye on the weather/news to keep track of the hurricane, and my heart goes out to everyone who is in the path of this storm. I have a childhood friend who now lives on the East coast of Florida, but she personally has had very little damage and posted on social media just an hour ago that all is well. Otherwise just making plans for the weekend, nothing major here. I hope you're all having a safe and peaceful day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

Hurry to Beyond

 Hiya everyone! Tonight I have a very limited time offer to share, as I've just discovered that the Beyond store has their group temporarily free to join and are offering $700L store credit to its members. This offer is only until the 2nd of October, so time is clearly of the essence! The sign to click (with group tag active) is outside their front door, then the group gifts are in the back room. The group tag also allows you to win several terrific lucky board prizes, which are located upstairs. Tonight I'll be sharing a few group gifts and a couple of lucky board goodies, since I haven't decided yet what I am going to spend my credits on :) By the way, those boards' letters change really quickly so you could wind up with several prizes in even a brief visit.


My first look this evening is the .:Beyond:. Aralia - Fatpack group gift. The dress and belt each come in Freya, Legacy, Perky, Maitreya, and Petite mesh body sizes. There is a HUD for the dress with 20 colors each for 5 sections (skirt, bodice, neck straps, and each waist strap) and another HUD with the same 20 color choices for our belt. I really appreciate the versatility, and the style is certainly a fun one!


Next we see the beautiful .:Beyond:. Lastheia - Fatpack, another generous group gift with lots of variety. The top and skirt will each fit eBody Reborn, Legacy, Perky, Maitreya, and Petite mesh bodies. The plaid and patterns HUD has 40 options each for two parts of the top and two parts of the skirt (ruffle and main), while the solid HUD has 20 coordinating colors each for the same sections. You can mix and match like I did on the left, or go all the same as you can see on the right. Just think of all the ways you can choose to wear this!


I am also a huge fan of the group gift called .:Beyond:. Cristine - Fatpack. This dress comes in sizes for Legacy, Perky, Maitreya, and Reborn bodies, with a fantastic HUD that offers 20 solids and 20 patterns each for the top and skirt portions. The strapless peplum top and very short skirt go quite well together for a sleek and flirty fashion.


This lucky board prize has a playful touch of Halloween if you so desire. It's called .:Beyond:. Naomi - Fatpack and consists of the cropped halter top and high waisted miniskirt in Freya, Isis, Hourglass, Legacy, and Maitreya sizing. The impressive HUD offers 20 colors each for top and skirt, each in plastic, solid, or pattern which happens to be bats as shown on the top left above. I expect this is just the beginning of my sharing Halloween themed items, so I'm simply getting into the groove ;)


I also won my final look of the evening from a lucky board :) The eye-catching .:Beyond:. India - Fatpack is a stunning dress and separate belt each in sizes for Alice, Freya, Isis, Hourglass, Legacy, and Maitreya mesh bodies. Then it includes a dress HUD with 20 colors each in solid, ombre, and pattern (floral), and a belt HUD with 5 metal options. I adore ombres, but that floral print is incredible too :)

I hope you're all having a pleasant day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

Kiyomizu Autumn 2022 Hunt

 Hiya everyone! Tonight we take a look at some of the prizes from the Kiyomizu Autumn 2022 Hunt, which starts at the Kiyomizu Mall and has us looking for ninja cats. When you find each one, just give it a click to receive your free prize, sounds easy enough...however some of them are hidden in unusual ways like shrunken down, flattened, or inside of another object. I recommend wireframe if you get stuck at a particular store. The mall locations with prizes have the scripted hunt signs that tell you which number stop the store is, and how many cats are hiding (all the ones I recall were just one) which also confirms that they are set up and ready. The ghosts floating above the walkways at the mall will send you to a custom link that shows which ones you have found and what URLs you still need to visit. We have almost 2 weeks left for the hunt, as it wraps up on the 10th of October.


First I slipped into the adorable GARDENIAn's kana prize called Camisole Pink "usa-chan". It is designed to fit Maitreya mesh bodies, and has a sweet pink bunny surrounded by flowers and butterflies on the fabric. I know this is an autumn hunt, but I think I like this for year-round wear depending on what we pair it with :) For example I'm wearing it tonight with the white pair from the fatpack of jeans from Delizio that are free on the marketplace.


Next I changed into the charming M*Motion C22 KYMZ Autumn Gift. This figure hugging dress with bare shoulders fits the Maitreya body. It looks great with the vibrant fall leaves pattern, and sheer wide ruffle on top. Did you notice the zipper in the back? It is an especially nice detail since many SL fashions leave me wondering how we would get in and out of them in RL ;)


If you find the cat at Amikko and pet it (click it), you will receive their Autumn Knitted Dress I'm enjoying above. It comes in 3 classic sizes and 3 fitmesh sizes (S, M, L each) for classic avatars, along with Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique mesh body sizing. The sleeveless style is balanced by a softly pleated full skirt and an attached black leather belt that matches the pert collar. The colors are ideal for the season too, with the green knit picking up some of the leaves in the skirt.


SHOP KERO is offering this Simple Blouse & Pleated Skirt for everyone who finds their ninja kitty. There are a fitmesh M size as well as Freya, Isis, Venus, Legacy, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine mesh body sizes for each piece, and a HUD with 10 colors to choose from for each. Just click the tab on the left side for which piece you want to tint, and then select your shade. 


For my final look of the evening, I am wearing the lovely Autumn Setup from MeltingDots Freebie Store. The top and skirt each come in sizing for Freya, Isis, Venus, Legacy, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine mesh bodies, plus a fitmesh M size for classic avatars. Then there is a HUD provided with 8 seasonal textures to choose from (entire outfit all at once) and 2 shades for the waistband and trim. The HUD also has arrows we can click to adjust the proportions of the texture, in other words make it larger or smaller on the clothing, just click them to try it out and you can click the center circle between the arrows to return it to default. I really recommend grabbing a landmark for this store and passing it on to anyone you encounter who is new to SL, since there are lots of gifts here that are classic avatar-friendly and plenty of non-clothing items that are really fun :)

I had a decent day at home, and I am looking forward to the new month soon because it always means new rounds of hunts and events to explore :) Sometimes I find familiar ones, and other times they are just beginning their SL experience. Things change quite often in SL, but one very consistent thing is that we can always find something to do, somewhere to visit that we haven't been before, or someone to chat with. I hope you're all having a lovely day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!
