Taking a Snow Day

Snow Day
(click to enlarge on flickr)

Today is a snow day! No work just play all day for these cute jackalopes. We just set up our house for winter, and now we’re ready for some fun. We built a snowman and Photographer Jackalope decided to take a picture of us being silly by it. The winter fox from Secret Store was camera shy and dove straight into the snow.

I was able to get the complete set of gacha prizes from What Next at The Arcade. I traded them all in for copy versions. The 2 story house is amazing and has 5 rooms. The decorative lights are color change or you remove them altogether. The snow on the roof can be hidden. The windows can be frosty or clear. Inside you can change many effects of the fireplace. Not only is the house able to be changed, but the mailbox takes notecards. The snowman and benches are animated. The door mats in this set are texture change. The only item that may not have anything to change about it is the bike decor. What an awesome set. I’m really pleased with it. This house can be used year round.

My outfit is new from Neve. The top is an oversized sweater with a shirt under it. The set is color change by hud. The sweater has 4 choices and the undershirt 6. You also have to choice to remove the undershirt. The jeans are an updated version of the coldLogic Bryon, Jennings, Conner, Traux, and Hance pants. Now fitted to support mesh bodies. These come in a variety of material and textures. Neve fits Belleza Isis, Maitreya Lara, Slink Physique, and the standard avatar. My hairstyle was done by Truth Hair. This style is named Focus. The purchase included a  super cute kittycat ears color change headband.

I hope you are able to have some fun and enjoy the holiday season. I’ll be checking your flickr for pictures!

9 Quick Pumpkin Decorating Ideas

Pumpkins

Halloween is less than a week away. Time for ghosts, goblins, princesses, and pumpkins to come out. Trick or treaters will be landing on some of your doorsteps hoping for more treats than tricks. Most of you have done your decorating at this point. In case you haven’t started here are a few quick and easy tips.

#1 Wayward Halloween has some free gifts at the starting point. One is a pumpkin carving table. Find Zerkalo for their carved pumpkin gacha. Get one of nine candle lit pumpkins for 50L per pull.

#2 Gachatopia is having their annual Tag! Gacha event. Get your hud and visit Imeka. There you will find cute kitty cat pumpkins gacha for just 25L a pull. Get the coupon to obtain Imeka’s special rare item that is a pumpkin ghost. This event is fun and will take you to visit many stores across the grid.

#3 What Next is known for their great decor. These pumpkins were actually released last year, but were so well done that you still see them all over the grid. Pumpkins come packaged individually and as displayed. They are copy and modify, so you can make them as big or small as you want. I believe these are priced at 120L for the grouping.

#4 Holiday Appreciation Association presents Havenhollow III. Trick or treat door to door and explore the scary sim. This free pumpkin pair gift from MishMish awaits you along with some other prizes at the event start.

#5 Pilot has made these adorable pumpkins with a mouse peeking out of them. Five colors to choose from or a fatpack. Get it at Collabor88 for 188L per pumpkin.

#6 Again we have pumpkins from What Next. These were available for FLF just the other Friday. Hopefully you didn’t miss out on that deal. The group of five pumpkins are still available for 150L. They are modify and copy. Candles inside can be turned on or off by touch.

#7 Half-Deer put these pumpkins out last year for FLF. I went to her store and saw they are still available for 50L. They are modify, copy, and completely adorable.

#8 Zerkalo has a gorgeous fall pumpkin with a strand of pearls draped across it. This pumpkin has eluded me. I have played that machine quite a bit and have been unsuccessful. I have multiples of the other commons if you want to trade! This whole set is pretty and at The Seasons Story. 50L pull

#9 I just couldn’t resist sharing this pumpkin. Apothecary jars are something that I really love. 22769 has created a scene of ghosts and a haunted house inside this pumpkin. You can choose from eight different color combinations. This pumpkin is also at The Seasons Story. 175L

Why We Love Fall (And You Should, Too!)

Fall Shopping Day

Fall isn’t just about pumpkin lattes and Halloween. Some stores do have Christmas stuff out already. All joking aside, this turning of the season also means that it is time to shop for new clothes! Shopping is a favorite pastime for most people that I know. And the beginning of the month means new product and sales are awaiting us!

Neve is participating in the MIX event with two new mesh dresses. The one I have on today is Acute and comes in four different textures (plaid/floral/lively/neutral). Each texture pack that you buy comes with a four color hud. These colors are great for the fall season. The color of the belt can also be changed, or you can remove it from the dress. Neve mesh clothes are made to fit Maitreya Lara, Belleza Isis, Slink Physique, and the classic avatar.

My gorgeous flowing locks are by Mina. She is one of the great sought after hair dressers in Second Life. This hairstyle is called Laila and is 50% off for the MIX event this month. Working our way down to the dazzling necklace I am wearing is ANE Angel Heart Necklace in diamond/silver. The bags are both from ROWNE and Zenith gachas. I love purses and these are really outstanding. I want to take the time to say that ROWNE has outstanding customer service. I rezzed this bag for decor and it poofed. Gone. So I contacted their customer service agent, Justice Topaz, and she sent me a new replacement! Apparently ROWNE bags cannot be rezzed, so do not try it.

And finally down to the feet we have Ingenue Astrid and Ninette Heels. The Ninette Heels were just on sale for FLF. Hope you were able to grab them. Betty Doyle is an outstanding footwear designer. I wish she would try and make clothes again. My powder blue classic stiletto heels are Sutra II from AlaskaMetro and matches perfectly with the outfit.

Apple Fall Exclusive Bed

Apple Exclusive Bed

I was so happy to hear that Apple Fall was the guest on The Gacha Show. He is one of my favorite designers in Second Life. The interviewer and audience had great questions for Apple. The chat log will appear on The Gacha Show blog when it is prepared. The show was informative and quite entertaining. Apple announced that his store will be moving to it’s own sim. The funniest thing that Apple said was his answer to Luke Templar about where Apple Fall goes for sex. To which Apple replied, “apple doesn’t go for sex, sex comes to Apple. and that’s all you need to know for now.” The audience was rolling.

What I really want to talk about is the exclusive gift. Most always the guest brings a gift for the audience. Apple Fall made this really great animated antique daybed. There are ink stains on the quilt, and the book is signed by Apple. Being a no copy and exclusive gift makes this bed worth a billion to me.

Apple Fall has an in world group that has just surprisingly reached 4,000 members. Probably so low due to the prior lack of announcements. You can join now for free and get the newest group gift from the store. This great Lemon Whip Drizzle cake and bucket of lemonade drinks. You were expecting apple pie? That is a whole other gacha.

Apple Fall is currently located here, but as I mentioned previously, the store will be moving.
