    Halloween Sales Event Gifts

     Hiya everyone! Tonight I have several free gifts to share from the Halloween Sales 2020 event, but don't worry because you have a few more days to visit :) It is open until the 4th of November, and each participating designer is offering a free gift (no group needed) inside a carved pumpkin that is wrapped with a black ribbon. Some gifts are Halloween themed while others are more general, so it is not a problem if you have not visited yet and do not get there until after the holiday itself. I got the news relatively late myself of the event's opening, but am still very happy that I stopped by. There are plenty of reasons, as you are about to see from a random sampling.


    My first look is the Lilith in Fitmesh for Classic + TMP + Maitreya by COVETED!. This shapely gown has built in wings and comes in the 3 sizes mentioned in its name. The horns I am wearing are an adjustable addition with a built in resize script. I used my Maitreya body's HUD to hide much of the body, as the figure hugging style seemed to hug my figure a bit too much ;) This is a great look for Halloween, but can also be used for costume parties or Gothic evening wear any time of year. 


    Turn up the flirt quotient with this gift from *ASIA* called ELEONOR black. It starts with the long gown with double slits with lace on the front panel and a wedge in the rear, with bodice held in place by straps in back and front, in sizes for Freya, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine bodies. You will also find the matching shoes included, strappy sandals sized for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink High feet. such a tantalizing look!


    Our gift from On A Lark is this charming *OAL* Meryl ~ Autumn halter style dress. It comes in Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizes, with earth tones that are terrific for this season, and you know I appreciate any pattern with birds :)


    This playful costume is the .::Believe::. Devil Set, yours for free just by clicking the pumpkin at their display. It includes the dress in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique bodies, as well as the horns, gold necklace, and even the pitchfork I am holding. If you are feeling a bit devilish, perhaps this is the gift for you.


    My final look of the evening is our female gift from Uncontrollably, called [UNC] Rebel Romper - Sugar Skull 4 Colors HUD. I did specify female because there is also a male gift in that same pumpkin :) The romper comes in standard mesh sizes along with Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique versions. As the name suggests, there is also a HUD with 4 colors to choose from for the bottom of the romper, all with the same image on its front. Sugar skulls are such beautiful, artistic creations and I admire all the fine details.

    Hooray for the weekend! :) I am really glad it's here, and I'm looking forward to the farmers market tomorrow which will have all sorts of tasty goodies. One of the ways they are celebrating Halloween there is to give a special treat to all dogs that are in costumes, which I cannot wait to see. As long as they don't mind wearing the outfits, it will be wonderful to see them enjoying the somewhat chilly but sunny day. Even though I don't have a dog myself, I love them and am grateful for a chance to watch them having fun. Two people at the market bake dog treats, so I have no idea which one is providing these treats or if maybe they both are giving them to the other vendors to distribute. One makes exclusively dog treats, the other is a baker for humans who just recently added dog biscuits to her lineup. I hope you all have a fantastic weekend ahead, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

    Almost Halloween

     Hiya everyone! Tonight I have another terrific Halloween treat to show you, which is an exclusive offer from Nirvana Fashion at BUNDLES of Dove (formerly called DAZZLE event). You will want to hurry for this one, as the event is ending very soon! Then we take a look at several group gifts from Blackbird Lace, whose store group is free to join. It is so worth the visit, especially when they have gifts for other groups available too if you are in several multi-designer groups like I am :) All of the gifts you'll see here tonight are for their store group specifically. These are great ways to be prepared for Halloween and then the weekend ahead.


    This spooky outfit is what I will be wearing as my casual Halloween look. It is the Nirvana Fashion - FeMale Halloween - Single Outfit B[4] exclusive for BUNDLES. For just $160L you will receive the shirt, jeans, and even shoes! The shirt is provided in 5 classic and 5 fitmesh standard sizes for classic avatars, plus sizes for eBody, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine mesh bodies. The pants (jeans leggings) come in system/BOM layer and an Omega applier for a broad range of compatibility, and the shoes are sized for eBody, Belleza, Maitreya, Slink, and Tonic feet. I think this is a perfect choice for watching a scary movie, or exploring a haunted mansion somewhere...good news, there is also an exclusive men's offer too!


    Over to Blackbird Lace, I am enjoying the unique style of their Ava dress with its diagonal ruffle and distressed spots. It comes in Altamura, Eve Pulpy, Eve Slim, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP sizes. I wonder if it was created from khaki colored denim, maybe a well loved pair of jeans that someone wanted to give a dressy feeling :)


    Next we have the Pamela Dress by BL, another generous group gift in plenty of sizing. The gift includes Altamura, eBody Curvy, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP versions. The overalls and coordinated tube top are linked together to be worn as one piece, making it very convenient to slip into this and head out for whatever you have planned.


    I am a big fan of polka dots, so this Andreea Dress by Blackbird Lace makes me very happy :) It is provided in sizes for Altamura, eBody Curvy, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP bodies, with a 10 color HUD so you can choose your favorite color. The peeks of midriff are a playful touch, aren't they?


    My final look this evening is the lovely Carina Gift by BL, and I am loving that dramatic ruffle and split color! It comes in Altamura, eBody Curvy, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP sizing. I was drawn to the striking style of this strapless mini with peekaboo opening in the front. 

    It has been a long day here...a chronic health issue is flaring, and the increased pain makes it a bit difficult to type. I am slow and awkward, but I am trying my best :) Tomorrow is my usual dinner with my parents, then a Saturday trip to the farmers market will be my only other outing for the weekend. I have clean masks ready to be worn, and I am wondering if having pleasant plans to look forward to will be an effective distraction so I can focus on things other than discomfort. I hope you're all having a beautiful day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

    More from Poet’s Heart

     Hiya everyone! Tonight it is my pleasure to share a few more group gifts from Poet's Heart. They specialize in roleplay and fantasy wear for the Maitreya mesh body, and I am very impressed with their generous bounty of group gifts! Their group is free to join by the way, so you can understand why I am so grateful and eager to pass along the information about their many high quality gifts.


    First we take a look at the beautiful Poet's Heart - Karoliina Group Gift, which includes the gown and separate sleeves each fitting the Maitreya mesh body. The drop V waist and gentle train are lovely details, and the ability to wear with or without the detached puffy sleeves make it extra versatile. 


    If you are going somewhere for Halloween and need a costume, and were thinking of being a stunning sea creature, I would love to suggest this Poet's Heart - Ocean Soul V2 Group Gift. It includes the bikini top, skirt, and shell deco which all fit the Maitreya body, and can be worn individually or all together as shown above. The shimmering scale texture is just *chef's kiss* :) 


    Our next gift has a sci-fi flavor, doesn't it? This is the Poet's Heart - Soothsayer Group Gift, with the long dress (Maitreya size) and each shoulder pad as separate attachments so you can decide if you wish to wear them or leave them off whenever you wear it. The corset style triple belt is attached to the dress, and really adds to the look. I feel both feminine and powerful in this gift.


    If you are still undecided about your Halloween formal wear, look no further than this striking Poet's Heart - Sophie Gown & Hat - Jack gift. The gown fits the Maitreya body, and the hat can be adjusted if you wish. The gown looks great with or without the hat, but it is certainly a fun addition :) I love how the hat's band perfectly matches the inset of the gown's bodice, both a nod to the season.


    You will need to click my final look of the evening for a better view, since the photo turned out wider than typical. The gift I am wearing here is the Poet's Heart - Happy Holidays 2019 (Niniane) gown. It has been created for Maitreya mesh bodies, and includes a HUD with lots of options to customize for a variety of looks. There are 6 choices each for the gown, bodice, bell sleeves, and bodice front, with 4 solid colors each for various trim areas like the hem, sleeve edges, and the band on the sleeve at the elbow. This is such a regal style, and with the right accessories it would be an excellent choice for a Renaissance themed event for example. Let your imagination run wild!

    Quick hair note of the night: Truth Hair released their Forever group gift, and it had been quite a while since their last release so I am glad to see that all is well and they are still able to create such awesome hair. The bangs are an optional attachment, and the sleek waist-length ponytail can be worn to either side or all to the back as I have here, with the stylist tab of any of the color HUDs included. The VIP gifts are always fatpacks with all their colors, so the fee to join more than pays for itself with a single gift. Be sure to get the updated version from the group notices, as there was a glitch with the bangs in the first one that was sent to the group. 

    I hope you are all having a wonderful day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

    Gifts of a Poet’s Heart

     Hiya everyone! Tonight I have some delightful group gifts to share, all from Poet's Heart which specializes in roleplay and fantasy clothing. I figure that is close enough to Halloween costumes, right? :) There are over a dozen gifts available for all who join their free group, and most are created for the Maitreya mesh body. I had a wonderful time trying on all of the gifts, and I can't wait to tell you all about the various options for each.


    First we have the elegant Poet's Heart - Aerin Group Gift. It includes the gown, overskirt, sleeves, and belt all as separate pieces in a Maitreya size, so you can wear all at once as I did on the left or just wear one at a time until you create the look you desire. On the right I am wearing the gown and belt, but no overskirt or sleeves. 


    Next I changed into the Poet's Heart - Carmelita Group Gift, another treat designed with the Maitreya body in mind. It includes the gown, overskirt, and ruffles that serve as off-shoulder sleeves, all of which I am wearing on the left. On the right I wanted to show you the gown on its own, sleek and strapless. The deep golden yellow color has a cheerful quality that I greatly appreciate.


    This timeless beauty is the Poet's Heart - Granny's Garden Group Gift. Its dress and separate sleeves both fit the Maitreya body, and I love having a full length gown decorated in such pretty flowers. It looks just as terrific with or without those sleeves of course, so it just depends on your mood :)


    I certainly thought of Halloween when I slipped into this next gift :) It's called Poet's Heart - Follower - Ghost, and includes a Maitreya sized robe as well as a cowl (head covering) that is not shown because my hair was not playing nicely with it. The splashes of suspicious red liquid add to its spooky factor, and I think a white hairstyle with extra pale skin would suit this very well.


    My final look of the evening is the Poet's Heart - Siobhan Group Gift, in several shades of my favorite color. The skirt and 2 versions of the blouse, with or without sleeves, are all fitted for the Maitreya body. I think the version with sleeves has a Boho feeling, and the length of the skirt makes it very nice for this time of year when there are still warm days to enjoy. 

    My next post will be a part two of these terrific gifts, as there were just so many that I still want to share with all of you! They definitely impressed me with their talent and their generosity to their group members. I hope you are all having a lovely day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

    Treats for FabFree

     Hiya everyone! Tonight we are exploring some FabFree group gifts, which is the inworld presence of the Fabulously Free in SL blog. It was not a completely random choice on my part, but because I had recently seen that a group gift was added to the list that is Halloween themed so the timing seemed right. I have been grateful to FabFree since my earliest days in SL (2007) since they have always provided helpful information about freebies, sales, special events and much more. Their group will always have a place among my precious group slots :) There are so many participating designers who offer gifts especially for the FabFree group members, just wear your "I am Fabulous" group tag to each store and look for the rainbow striped FabFree sign.


    My first stop was Brii Underground, where among the many gifts for various groups, I found this lovely Mayda Blue Version Loisirs Style Complet. Thanks to some quick googling, I now know that loisirs is French for leisure, which makes sense for a casually charming outfit. The dress is provided in Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizes, with matching heels in Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink High fits. Included but not shown is an Omega applier of makeup designed for Catwa heads, so if your mesh head is compatible with Omega it is worth a try.


    As promised, next we have a gift that is ideal for this time of year from *MIRUS* called Bat Blouse. This cropped knit top has purple and black stripes accented by bats, and is included in standard mesh sizes along with Freya, Venus, Legacy, Legacy Perky, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique body sizing. I am wearing it with the blue jeans from the fatpack of colors that Delizio offers on the marketplace for free, in system/BOM layers plus appliers for Maitreya and Omega. 


    I also visited Baci, where I found this sexy gift called Punkorset Pink. It has a bold look in an ombre of purple to pink, with metallic sheen and fun zipper all the way down the front. The gift includes several sizes for classic avatars (standard S, M, L, fitmesh S, M, L) as well as Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique mesh body versions. 


    Artizana is currently offering this beautiful Samya (Spectra) Dress for all FabFree group members to enjoy. Just right click the sign, pay $1L, and you will be automatically refunded while the gift is delivered. It has a great Bohemian feel to it, with the bell sleeves and flattering shape, trimmed in gorgeous paisley. Teal and black look fantastic together, don't they? This group gift comes in 5 classic sizes and 5 fitmesh standard sizes for the classic avatars, and the sizes for mesh bodies include Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP. 


    For my final look of the evening, I shimmied into the sparkly AsHmOoT gift called S/S CoLL_MiniDress Monospalla/Glit/O. This one-shouldered mini has a flirty flared skirt, and comes in sizes for eBody Curvy, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine mesh bodies. Added bonus - the pale orange color is an elegant nod to not just Halloween but autumn in general.

    I hope you are all enjoying your day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

    Hunt on Haunted Hill

     Hiya everyone! Tonight I would like to bring your attention to another holiday themed hunt, the Hunt on Haunted Hill 4. It is a dollarbie ($1L each prize) hunt with hidden ghosts at each participating store, just follow the hints on the website to help you find them. We have less than a week remaining for this hunt since it closes on the 31st (Halloween!) so please be sure to collect the prizes you wish as soon as you can. There are other hunts with ghost type hunt objects to find, this one has his/her arms out under the sheet and is 3D rather than a flat image. Some stores have a sample on their sign to click for a hint, which is really helpful in seeing exactly what you are looking for. 


    First we have the Waffles prize called *WW* Olive Orange Witchy Dress. It is provided in sizes for eBody Curvy, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique bodies, with a short tulip style skirt and tight bodice with spaghetti straps. I like the silhouettes of the witches flying on their brooms across a dusky green sky.


    I am a big fan of The Sissy Bar and their style, so it is also a pleasure to share their prize for this hunt with all of you. The outfit is named Hunt on Haunted Hill 4, as they usually do, and consists of a cold shoulder style top with skeletal image on the front as well as a pair of cuffed skinny jeans. The top comes in a fitmesh M size for classic avatars, plus Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine body sizing. The jeans have 5 classic and 5 fitmesh standard sizes for the classic avatar gals, and versions for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique bodies. Some of those had 2 different fits, for example I am wearing the fuller cut Maitreya 2 version here and it is quite flattering. 


    For my next look, I visited MadCatCreations where I found a generous ghost who holds 2 prizes inside, one for men and one for women. As a random extra hint, this would explain why you might want to check the mens department and not just the ladies area like I almost did ;) This is their MCC - woman - Haunted Kitty dress, a spooky wrap dress with long sleeves, short skirt, and plenty of Halloween images scattered about a cloudy or foggy backdrop. It is provided in Altamura, Freya, Isis, Venus, Legacy, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizing. 


    [Ari-Pari] also has a ghost waiting for you, with a fantastic exclusive prize tucked inside. This is their Dancing Skeletons Dress V2 - HOHH4 strapless mini, a flirty look that includes sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique bodies. There is also a HUD so you can pick from 8 fun colors, all with a pattern of skeletons getting their groove on that makes me smile. Since they are already dancing, why not add your favorite shoes and bring them to a club?


    My final look of the evening is our hunt prize from Artistic.Rage called A.R Spooky Ghost Dress. It has sexy bare shoulders above the layered ruffles of the drop sleeves, and the short skirt has a terrific ruffle too. The playful pattern has some cheerful looking ghosts, who seem to be enjoying their special holiday season. It comes in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique mesh bodies. 

    Sundays are usually calm here and today was no exception :) There is one irritating weekly chore that I do each Sunday, and otherwise I was able to relax and catch up on random enjoyable things. There are some exciting things approaching in SL like The Wash Cart Sale starting in early November, so I am eagerly anticipating a new month. Meanwhile I hope you're all having a lovely day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

    Enticing Treats

     Hiya everyone! Tonight I have more Boo at Blacklace hunt prizes to share, this time all created by ~Blacklace~ themselves :) The hunt at the Blacklace Mall lasts for just about another week, until the month ends and we celebrate Halloween. There are samples of the free pumpkins we are seeking at the hunt signs, which is always helpful, and there is a sign in the courtyard with pictures of many of the prizes. The weekend also brings us bargains thanks to the Saturday Sale, and I will be showing you this week's offer from Entice which is available for several more days with lots of options and potential savings. Let's get started!


    My first look is the daring ~Blacklace~ Bedeviled-Halloween hunt prize. It consists of the sheer lacy top and panties each in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Legacy, Legacy Perky, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique mesh bodies. There is also a HUD offering 3 color choices for each, the two shown above and a pumpkin-like orange. The scalloped edges add to the overall details that make this delicate look so beautiful.


    Keep looking for those free pumpkins and you will also find this ~Blacklace~ Caress-Halloween teddy in one of them. It comes in sizes for eBody, Freya, Isis, Venus, Jomo Dragon, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine bodies. There is also a HUD provided with this prize as well, 4 fun colors to pick from including the two above plus green and black. 


    One of these days, you just might bump into me at a store in this adorable prize called ~Blacklace~ Rhea-Halloween. Its cropped top and split shorts are each included in Freya, Venus, Legacy, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizes, with a HUD that offers 3 choices for each piece. The tops are solid colors and the shorts have playful patterns that can easily match more than one top color, so you can get creative with those for sure.


    This tempting look is the ~Blacklace~ Misha-Halloween lace romper, with seasonal fabrics complemented by sheer lace. The romper is sized for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique bodies, with a HUD to choose from the two color/textures shown above. The cobwebs on the right are topped with white lace bodice trimmed in black, so your special someone is sure to get an eyeful ;) I love the crossed straps in the back too, yet another pretty touch on this sexy outfit.


    For my final look of the evening, I would like to cheerfully invite you to the Saturday Sale area at Entice, where you can find this Lose Control Outfit - Psycho for a mere $75L. If you are known for being the sweet and innocent type, this could be an amusing Halloween costume, or you can just warn people to behave around you without saying a word. The top and skirt are each fitted for the Freya, Hourglass, and Maitreya mesh bodies, and the sale lasts until the 29th of the month. In addition to this version, there are Graphic and Cheer sets that are each offered in 8 individual colors and are currently marked down to $249L each (down from $300L) or you can choose either the Graphic or Cheer fatpack for $599L discounted from $599L with 10 colors each via HUD. Feeling like treating yourself even more, or can't decide? You may want to choose the mega fatpack, which includes both HUDs for a whopping 20 total varieties, currently $999L instead of its usual $1100L retail price. Be sure to try the demo first, and remember you deserve to treat yourself to a new look (or several) this weekend!

    My visit to the farmers market was very pleasant, with good weather and splendid conversations with some of my favorite people ♥. They are kind and friendly, and genuinely caring people who notice if you miss a week or don't seem like your usual self. I go every week because of them, with the bonus of their delicious food ;) I hope you're all enjoying your weekend so far, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

    Weekend at Blacklace

     Hiya everyone! Tonight's post features more prizes from the Boo at Blacklace hunt, since there were so many treats to find all throughout the Blacklace Mall area. Three stores have free gifts hiding inside carved orange pumpkins (samples at the hunt signs) and I was very pleased with what I found. From casual to formal to sexy, there is a little something for every fashion taste, and most are Halloween themed so this is the ideal time to visit :) The hunt runs until the end of the month, so just over a week remaining. I also went hair shopping because I was in need of some retail therapy, LOL, and was craving a fresh new look.


    If you saw yesterday's post, I wrapped it up with one of the prizes from [TinRoof], and now I am starting this post with the other two :) The t-shirt on the left is their "Lunar" T-Shirt and the "Libra" is on the right. Each shirt comes in standard mesh sizes, as well as eBody Classic, eBody Curvy, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine mesh body versions. The gilded images on the front are similar but distinctive, with a crescent moon on Lunar and a woman holding scales on Libra. That is my dad's zodiac sign, so I recognized the symbolism immediately :) They both look great with my favorite Delizio jeans, one of several colors available for free on the marketplace in system/BOM layers plus appliers for Omega and Maitreya.


    ~Blacklace~ is known for high quality lingerie, so their first prize of 8 is just as delightfully flirty as I expected. It is their Trussed lingerie's Halloween version, and the daring bra and thong are each included in Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizing. There is also a HUD with 3 colors each for the bows and laces of the bra, and 3 patterns for the fabric of the bra and the thong. This allows for a lot of personalization to get the look you wish. Because of the revealing nature of the laced bra cups, I had to add modesty flowers in photoshop after taking these photos, those white flowers are not part of the outfit at all.


    Next I found this adorable ~Blacklace~ Jamie: Boo PJs, another prize that is just right for Halloween. The tank top (which says BOO on it) and cozy pajama pants (decorated in fun seasonal images) each come in Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizing, while even the matching slippers are included in an unrigged version that can be easily adjusted to your feet. All ready for snuggles!


    This tantalizing slip is the ~Blacklace~ Tiane-Halloween hunt prize, especially textured with the holiday in mind. It comes in Freya, Isis, Legacy, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizing, with a HUD offering 3 color/texture choices each in sheer or non-sheer versions. The sheer part is the lace of the bodice, which I have as sheer on the right but not on the left. Either way it is still plenty revealing and is quite a treat.


    For my final look of the evening, I slipped into the ~Blacklace~ Ava-Halloween hunt prize. Its corset and panties are each sized for the Freya, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique mesh bodies, and a HUD is included with 2 textures each that you can mix or match. The one on the left above looks to be an old movie poster, and on the right are some grinning monochromatic skulls. Both patterns have the same black trim, which complements them both very well.

    Quick hair note of the night: I visited Magika to try on a demo of their newest style, then started trying on others, and wound up purchasing their playful Lyric hair. Its HUD has dozens and dozens of colors to choose from, and options to part the hair on the left or right. There is a barrette accessory that you can hide (as I did) or choose from 2 textures for it, and there are unrigged bangs that I am wearing here because I do have a fondness for them in general ;) The short style is great for blogging since it won't hide my clothing, and I enjoy the loose waves.

    It was an enjoyable day here, with good weather and a fun visit with my parents for dinner. I am also looking forward to the farmers market tomorrow, where the lunch this week is Mexican themed with several dishes made by a family from Guadalajara. I'm getting cheese quesadillas with their handmade corn tortillas, yum! I've got my mask all clean and ready, and I have another style mask ordered that I am hoping will be here in time for next week's visit. I hope you all have a beautiful weekend planned, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

    Boo-Tiful

     Hiya everyone! Tonight we continue looking at prizes from the Boo at Blacklace hunt, which as I mentioned yesterday is a search for carved orange pumpkins all over the Blacklace Mall area. Take a stroll through the courtyard, the stores, and be sure to look up and down for over 20 generous free gifts. I believe I found 25 total from 3 stores, and tonight I will show you more of the ~EccentriciXi~ prizes as well as one of the TinRoof treats.


    We start the evening with the ~EccentriciXi~ Riva Orange prize. Its black cable knit sweater with white shirt layered beneath (just visible in the V of the neckline) is provided in classic M and fitmesh M sizes for classic avatars, as well as Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine mesh body sizing. The plaid skirt with cargo style pockets comes in 5 standard mesh sizes along with Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine versions. They combine for a fun casual look that will look great during autumn and Halloween season or any time of year.


    Next I slipped into something more formal, the prize called ~EccentriciXi~ Vintage Dress Joan2 - Orange. The classic pattern incorporates two seasonal colors beautifully, and I am certainly a fan of the bare shoulder look. This gift includes fitmesh standard sizes plus eBody, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Ocacin, Hourglass, Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine sizes. 


    There is something elegant about a simple tank dress style, and who can resist stripes in varying widths? This is ~EccentriciXi~ Dress Whitney Stripe - Purple, and it is provided in Freya, Venus, Maitreya, Ocacin, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, Tonic Fine, and Voluptuous sizing. The colors are a particular favorite combo of mine, and you can change this look quite easily with the accessories you choose.


    If you need something comfy to wear for lounging around your home, I happily suggest finding the ~EccentriciXi~ PJs Snooze Halloween - Red Words prize. It is easy to wear since our tank top and pajama pants are linked together, in fitmesh standard sizes as well as eBody, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Ocacin, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP mesh body sizing. The print on the pants has spooky words like dead, fear, horror, fright...makes me think of the commercials for scary movies I've been seeing lately ;)


    For my final look of the evening, I chose one of the three prizes I found from [TinRoof], their "Solar" T-Shirt. It has cuffed short sleeves and falls right at the natural waistline, in black with a vivid golden design embossed on the front. It includes standard mesh sizes for the classic avatars, plus sizes for eBody Classic, eBody Curvy, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine mesh bodies. There are two other similar tees in their other pumpkins, so if you like what you see you will probably want to try to find all 3.

    I am glad the weekend is almost here, as I am sure many of you are too :) I have my usual dinner plans for tomorrow (at my parents') and the outing to the local farmers market on Saturday, so those are positive things to anticipate. Meanwhile I hope you are all having a terrific day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

    Boo at Blacklace

     Hiya everyone! Tonight I have an exciting hunt to share with you, Boo at Blacklace. It takes place at the Blacklace Mall, where we are looking for carved orange pumpkins set for sale for $0L. Now it is Halloween season and there are decorations around that are also pumpkins, so be sure to take a peek at the samples by the signs to see precisely what to look for, and hovering over any pumpkin you see will tell you if it is able to be purchased. In addition to the Blacklace store, there are two others with prizes out, ~EccentriciXi~ and Tin Roof, and in tonight's post I will be showing you a handful of the ~EccentriciXi~ gifts. My advice for finding all the prizes is to look around inside and outside of the various stores, and even up high on the outside of buildings ;) There are no individual hints, so I figured I would give a small assist. The hunt just started and lasts until the 31st, so Halloween.


    My first look this evening is the ~EccentriciXi~ Chemise Fright Night2 - Night Sky. This flirty slip dress has one strap dangling off the shoulder, and the pattern is scattered with bats and stars for a seasonal feeling. It comes in standard fitmesh sizes as well as eBody, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Ocacin, Hourglass, Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine mesh body versions. Now is a good time to mention that all of the prizes you'll see here tonight come in the same generous set of sizes.


    If you need to bundle up a bit this Halloween, may I suggest this charming prize? It is called ~EccentriciXi~ Outfit Dee Halloween - Green Candy, and both the sweater and leggings come in the same sizes as the previous prize. The solid black of the sweater means that it can be paired with any pants or jeans you wish during other seasons, and the pumpkins on the leggings' pattern definitely remind me of the hunt objects we are looking for. 


    From casual to formal, next we see the ~EccentriciXi~ Gown Bewitched - Purple prize. It is provided in the same range of sizes as the other treats, and is a flattering style with V neckline, waist ornament, and a train in the back. The spiders and their webs look right at home, don't they?


    I love wrap dresses, so I was delighted to find this prize! It is the ~EccentriciXi~ Dress Noni Plaid - Orange, in their usual set of sizes for both classic and mesh avatars. The plaid is perfectly complemented by the black ruffle at the hem, and I enjoy the balance of long sleeves and a short skirt.


    My final look of the evening is another wonderful prize from ~EccentriciXi~, this one called Dress Dusk - Yellow Ghosts. That pale vibrant yellow almost looks like it could glow in the dark, and really pops against the black background. All the ghosts look so happy, I guess they enjoy floating among the stars :)

    I am very glad to be back to blogging, yet I admit I enjoyed having a quick day off too. The doctor's appointment went really well, and I got some helpful answers about various things that will help me head in the right direction. I need more blood tests done to clarify some things, but nothing too concerning in the long run. I hope you're all having a beautiful day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

    OSMIA Group Gifts

     Hiya everyone! Tonight I decided to keep things simple with just one stop, OSMIA, where you can join their free group and claim several terrific gifts at once. These are excellent quality and mostly fatpacks, so they are quite generous. I hope you enjoy your visit as much as I obviously did :)


    First we see the OSMIA - ValentineDay Dress Group Gift, which I think is suitable for any day of the year. It includes sizes for Freya, Hourglass, Legacy, and Maitreya bodies, with a HUD offering 12 solid colors in a subtle knit pattern. There is something so chic about the high neckline and bare shoulder combination.


    Anyone else getting Baywatch vibes from my choice of red on the left here? :) This is the OSMIA - Basic.Bodysuit - Group Gift, although I can envision wearing it as a swimsuit if one prefers. It comes in sizes for Freya, Isis, Hourglass, and Maitreya bodies, with an impressive 18 color HUD so you can change your look with a quick click. I love the crossed straps in the back, they are even a RL preference of mine to keep the front of the straps in place without sliding down.


    Another group gift with a fantastic rear view is this OSMIA - B-Day.Dress x 2019 - Group Gift. It is provided in Freya, Isis, Hourglass, and Maitreya sizing, with a HUD to choose from 10 solid colors or 5 patterns for a total of 15 options. The bodice is comprised of two sections that are tied in the back, and the mini skirt adds a touch of flirt to the look.


    Time to combine some group gifts to create winning looks :) The top here is their OSMIA - Mira.Base Blouse, a simple yet sexy long sleeved blouse with deep V both front and back that is tied with long trailing bows. It comes in sizes for Freya, Hourglass, Legacy, Legacy Perky, and Maitreya bodies, with a 12 color HUD that certainly comes in handy. I am wearing it with two of the many choices among the OSMIA - Halloween Leggins - Group Gift, which provides a lucky 13 versions each in Freya, Isis, Hourglass, and Maitreya sizes. There are single colors and combos of two hues, like the red/black on the right, which as you can see are Halloween printed so just right for this time of year.


    For my final look of the night, I am still enjoying the Halloween Leggins in various colors, and have paired them with the OSMIA - Crop.Top - GIFT. This sporty style has a wide elastic band with different sayings on each version, 6 choices each in sizes for Freya, Isis, Hourglass, and Maitreya. The one on the left says "I'm Shook" and on the right I am wearing "Unicorn". The green of the unicorn one looks nice with the darker green/black of the leggins, doesn't it? I think you can tell that I enjoy seasonal themed clothing as much as more universal styles.

    Today was not a very good day here, thanks to a stupid mistake that I made that came back to bite me. It is mostly resolved now, but I guess I am still stressed out from having to deal with it. Tomorrow I will be taking the evening off from blogging, both as a result of a doctor's appointment keeping me busy and then just needing to unwind and take a break. Things will be fine once I get some medical answers and some extra rest :) I hope you're all having a lovely day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

    Happy Anniversary Kustom9

     Hiya everyone! Tonight's post is filled with gifts that you can claim for free, just by visiting the Kustom9 event for it's 7th anniversary round and joining their free group. Nearly every participating designer has a gift waiting for you at their display, in a brown wrapped gift box with twine and a sprig of greenery to decorate it. I really enjoy celebrating the anniversaries of these long-running events, honoring the fact that they have earned such a following and are able to endure. Their hard work brings us exclusive offers, discounts, and a way to become familiar with new creators alongside our favorites. This particular round of Kustom9 lasts until the 11th of November, so you have time to enjoy.


    My first look is the dazzling gift from [Eternus] called (Chocolate) Allurement Dress. It comes in Freya, Isis, Legacy, and Maitreya sizes, and is a very flirty wrap style with asymmetrical hem. The rich color is as flattering as the design itself. 


    Some SL activities call for a more casual outfit, so I am also grateful for the [ILAYA] Helena Short and Dee Tank Top gift. They are provided in sizes for Legacy, Maitreya, and Maitreya Petite, each with a HUD offering 16 colors for the cords. On the top the cord is holding the left hem curled up, and the shorts have strings tightening the waistband with 4 metals for around the strings as well. I love how the pattern of the shorts is subtly repeated on the tank top, with the skull image on the front and the tombstone on the back.


    Two gifts make an appearance here, so let's start from the top ;) That would be the [[ Masoom ]] Tia Top - Yellow gift, a splash of sunshine in a cropped tee that reveals a hint of under-boob. It comes in Classic, Freya, Hourglass, Legacy, Legacy Perky, and Maitreya sizing. I paired it with the gift from M.BIRDIE which is their Nari look Skirt Gift. It has been rigged for the Maitreya mesh body, in a soft brown suede-like texture with crisp pleats on the front. They look lovely together, but of course you can match them up with whatever you prefer from your inventory.


    Oops, I think my avi had an accident ;) At least that is what The Spook Returns Top from Gaia would lead you to believe. This gift comes in sizes for Freya, Legacy, Legacy Perky, and Maitreya mesh bodies, with a 5 texture HUD whose colors all have a suspicious splotch in the center of the top. As for my shorts, those are the gift from evani. called witch shorts. They have playful slits on each side that go almost all the way up to the waistband, with red buttons along the openings. Our gift includes Freya and Maitreya sizing.


    For my final look this evening, I kept the Evani shorts on but changed into another top, this time from Luas called Nura Top Fatpack. The cropped t-shirt comes in sizes for Freya, Isis, Hourglass, Legacy, Legacy Perky, Maitreya, and Maitreya Petite bodies. There is also a HUD so you can choose from 8 colors and 5 stickers (the design or logo on the front) or there is an option for no sticker, so the shirt would be blank. I really like the sheen of the fabric, and the "I smell children" sticker (left above) gave me a Hocus Pocus giggle. 

    It was another busy but fun day, and the weekend went by pretty quickly because of it. I have an appointment on Tuesday that is really the only big thing planned for my upcoming week, and I am not certain yet how much it will affect my blog schedule. Meanwhile I hope you are all having a wonderful day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

    No Tricks Just Treats

     Hiya everyone! Tonight we have a few more Boo! Bunny Hunt 9 prizes to see, all of which you can find in the black and orange striped candies hidden in each store for a mere $1L. As you have seen in my last couple of posts too, these are wonderful gifts that are themed for Halloween for the most part, and even if your RL area doesn't celebrate this holiday you might enjoy the spooky feel :) Sometimes I get into moods where I want dark dramatic colors, and these are right up that alley.


    The first prize I'd like to share this evening is from Indigenous, their Black Cat Outfit. The shirt and pants each come in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Legacy, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine mesh bodies. The textures have such a luxurious velvety look to them, and thanks to one of my best friends having had 2 black cats I consider them to be good luck rather than bad.


    Prism has a versatile treat inside their candy called Jezebel Halloween Dress Gown & HUD by Jezzixa Cazalet. It starts with the mesh dress in standard sizes and a fitted version for classic avatars, along with Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique mesh body sizing. The HUD for it lets you choose from 4 textures. We also receive 3 layered black lace skirts, one of which is labeled cocktail and another as gown length, all of which can be touched to access a resize script so you can get the best fit. Flexi is especially fun for dancing, since it floats and moves with each movement of your avatar.


    Do you need to warn people around you that your bark is not actually worse than your bite? The prize from The Bold Llama T-Shirt Co., called BEWARE, I BITE Tee, will do just that, or at least help encourage social distancing ;) It includes standard mesh sizes as well as eBody, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Ocacin, Hourglass, Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine sizing. 


    I also found the candy at BlondeQueen so I could claim their BQ :Selene Top::Orange&Purple duo. These tops are shorter than I realized from looking at the preview image on the hunt's site, so I am guessing they were worn with a bodysuit but I mistook the picture as them being longer like the full bodysuit ;) I am not sorry though, as they are adorable! Each color is provided in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique bodies. A handy hint I will offer in addition to the one on the site is that those construction barriers can still be walked around to get to the other rooms of the store.


    I am wrapping things up this evening with a much more formal look, the elegant ART & FASHION - WITCH OF THE MOON GOWN. As you can see, there is a witch pictured on the front and a moon on the back, with pretty stars near both apparitions. The gown has daring slits that are revealing but still covers all the essentials, and the prize contains eBody, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Ocacin, Hourglass, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine mesh body sizing. Is there a single word that captures the spooky yet sexy feeling of this gown? 

    It is so refreshing to have a day that is busy for pleasant reasons! My day started with the farmers market visit I had been looking forward to, and continued with helping my housemate get started on Animal Crossing New Horizons. I've been playing and loving it since March, so I was able to offer guidance while reminiscing on those early days. I had really forgotten a lot of the little details. I hope you're all enjoying your weekend so far, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

    Weekend Boo Bunny

     Hiya everyone! Tonight I found more fantastic prizes from the Boo! Bunny Hunt 9, and I am delighted to show them off to you. They are just $1L each when you find the hidden piece of candy in its black and orange striped wrapper, quite a bargain for these quality prizes. I even claimed a new hairdo from inside one of the candies :) It is very much to my taste, an updo with bangs and lots of colors and options as you will see. The clothing is mainly Halloween themed, but I feel like I have been celebrating that holiday all month already so I enjoy having lots of possibilities.


    Our first stop of the evening is .EscalateD. where this terrific Shane hair is the prize the boo bunny left behind. It comes in duo and streak versions (I am wearing the streak, where choosing 2 colors produces bold highlights all over) and mirrors of each, with a resize script built in. There are two color HUDs, natural and unnatural essentials, each offering 40 colors to wear in combinations or one at a time. There is even a styling HUD to hide various sections like bangs and wisps. You are probably curious about that flirty outfit too, well that would be the hunt prize from Emerald Couture called EC Batya Outfit. It consists of a dress and thong each in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique bodies, with matching shoes for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink high feet. I was drawn to the harness built into the dress, and that sheer panel in the back that explains the need for the thong ;) The bats on the straps of the shoes are an excellent touch as well. 


    I changed the colors of the Shane hair here, using the Duo aspect of the HUD to pick different blondes that show off the streaks by looking very sunkissed. I also used the stylist HUD to hide the bangs on the right side, but kept the wisps. My outfit here is the [Ari-Pari] Halloween Ghostie Outfit V2 - BBH9, a playful pairing of shorts and tied top in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique bodies. There is also a HUD included with 5 colors for the top, and 5 coordinating patterns for the shorts with the background color matching each top's choice. The ghosts and pumpkins look like they are having a grand time playing with each other, as I had fun changing colors and appreciating all the little details. Did you notice the tiny bow in the front of the shorts? It echoes the ties on the sides of the top wonderfully.


    Next I tried a bold russet shade for my hair, kept the shorts from the prior gift on, and slipped into the "Freda" prize called Boo Bunny Hunt Gift Oversized Sweatshirt Orange. Fittingly, it does say BOO! across the front, and has that bare shoulder where the wide neckline just slides down...our prize includes Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine sizing. 


    There are two hidden candies at Wicked Inc, and the female one (follow those hints!) contains not just one but two spooky dresses. They are the Zombie Dress in black (left) and green (right), with a daring neckline and laced up back above a very short skirt with zombie ruffle. That's something you don't get to say very often - my dress has a ruffle of zombies on it! Each color is provided in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Jomo Fox, and Jomo Werewolf mesh bodies. 


    For my final look of the evening, I found the prize at Ink Blots which contains male and female gifts. This is the BBH9 Vest Dress for the ladies, with an intricate yet subtle pattern on both the dress and the long vest layer which are linked together and worn as one. It comes in Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine sizing. I really like the colors for this time of year!

    It was a nice day here, a bit of rain which led to cooler weather especially by the time I headed to my parents' for dinner. It was mostly dark out already, since that happens so quickly these days. I always appreciate being there, and we are usually discussing plans for the upcoming week so it is helpful to be there too. I am excited about going to the farmers market tomorrow, where it should be sunny but chilly so I will be wearing a jacket. I hope you all have a beautiful weekend ahead, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

    Boo Bunny Hunt

     Hiya everyone! Tonight's post will show you some wonderful hunt prizes from the Boo! Bunny Hunt 9. It is a $1L gridwide hunt in which we are looking for a black and orange striped piece of candy, all wrapped up and looking ready to be placed in a lucky trick or treater's bag. There is a picture of it on the hunt's website, as well as the usual array of landmarks, hints, and preview photos for many of the prizes. It is always a good idea to have a hunt's website open while you are working on claiming the goodies, at least I have found over the years and especially when (like this hunt) the landmarks to the next stop are not included in the prize folders. My guess is that it's easier for the organizers to keep the locations up to date if something changes, instead of waiting for a busy designer to change the landmark from inside their prize. Speaking of prizes, there are some really tempting ones to be found inside these candies!


    Our first look comes from Grumble, whose designer happens to be the organizer of our exciting hunt :) Their gift is the sweatshirt with a Boo! Bunny on it and the short ruffle skirt, each in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique bodies. The skirt is packed separately among the sweatshirts, so be on the lookout for that to get the full benefit of this wonderful prize.


    I kept the Grumble skirt on here, but changed into the prize from ZFG which is called CACKLE. This cropped hooded sweatshirt has a witch flying across the front on her broom (with a familiar along for the ride!) and bats on both shoulders. It is provided in Freya, Isis, Venus, Legacy, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizing, with a HUD offering 5 colors to pick from. I personally am a big fan of purple, but all the colors are great choices.


    +Uni Boutique+ has their Paris Dress - Evil Queen hiding in their piece of candy, although I do not feel evil in it at all; more like elegant and sexy! It includes eBody Curvy, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine sizing, with daring beaded straps and a bronze shimmery texture. 


    Sometimes we need a little something alluring for underneath our clothing, or to show off to a special someone ;) The prize from Tip 2 Toe will provide just that with a seasonal flavor. It is simply called Boo! Bunny BOM, as the bra and panties are each provided in a BOM (system) layer to be worn with compatible mesh bodies or even on the classic avatar. The peaks of black lace are beautiful, and are a charming contrast to the spooky-fun pattern of the fabric.


    For my final look of the evening, I found the candy at Crayon's Closet which was a new store for me to explore. Their impressive Halloween Dress has a webbed neckline both front and back, and both sides have black leather panels flanking a center panel decorated with seasonal candies and jack o'lanterns. The dress and a matching panty liner are each included in eBody Classic, eBody Curvy, Freya, Isis, Venus, Legacy, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine sizing.

    For some reason it seems like the people in my life are having serious computer problems lately, and I feel awful for them! The latest were my dad's PC completely giving up and needing to be replaced, and now Xan is working on restoring his system from what might have been an operating system update gone wrong. It makes me a bit nervous that my computer might be next! *fingers crossed* I hope you're all having a lovely day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

    More Rogue Echo Gifts

     Hiya everyone! Tonight I will be sharing more of the Trick or Treat gifts from Rogue Echo, all located in tombstones upstairs in their store. No group needed, no hunting, just give each one a click (they are lined up against a railing, very easy to see) and it will dispense the gift it holds for free. No tricks but lots of treats, and once you see the high quality of these gifts you just might be tempted to treat yourself to some shopping ;) I am impressed with their texturing, as I think I mentioned yesterday, so I am swiftly becoming a big fan of their work.


    First we have the {RE} G Spooky Dress, a sleeveless mini with a playful pattern of ghosts, pumpkins, bats and more, with black leather harness built in. It comes in Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizes, as all of tonight's dresses do. The more I stare at the texture, the more new things I notice to make me smile!


    This style probably looks familiar from yesterday's post, but in a much different color and pattern :) It is their {RE} G Samantha Dress, and has a daring wedge cut out that is certain to turn heads wherever you wear this. The bats really stand out against the lavender background, as do the various moons and stars. 


    Another style you may recognize from the last post appears here too, not just once but twice as there were 3 delightful versions of this dress. On the left is their {RE} G Dark Lady Dress, and the beauty on the right is called {RE} G Vamp Dress. The main difference is the bat on the sheer section of upper bodice, and yesterday's Dark Rose Dress had the same color scheme but with a rosebud attached to the collar like a pendant. I really do appreciate having the trio of variations to suit different moods. 


    Your Halloween season just got even more flirty, thanks to this {RE} G Full Moon Dress gift. The familiar orange and black colors look terrific with the fishnet top with just enough of a V to cover the essentials, and a full moon on the front with lots of bats flitting around both front and back. My backyard has woods behind it so I do occasionally spot a bat or two if I go out at night, and I find them to be fascinating creatures.


    My final look of the evening is perfect for those of us who love purple. It is called {RE} G Vamparella Dress, and is comparable to the prior photo's gift but with the bat and stars pattern from the second photo of this post. The weather may be cooling down, but this style seems to want to heat things up again ;)

    It was an interesting day, and my chiropractor appointment went very well with the added bonus of getting to meet the other doctor's beautiful dog. He is a keeshond, which are very fluffy dogs like a bigger version of a Pomeranian in shades of black and grey. He was great with strangers wanting to pet him (myself included) and just seemed very happy and friendly. My neck is feeling a little better, and that should help the headaches go away. I hope you're all enjoying your day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

    Trick or Treat with Rogue Echo

     Hiya everyone! Tonight I am sharing some Halloween gifts I have stumbled across that will help you prepare for the season and beyond. Rogue Echo has 12 tombstones upstairs in their store that each distribute a different Trick or Treat gift when clicked, no group needed, and since they aren't hidden the hardest part will be deciding which to wear first. This post is a part one, so you know what to expect tomorrow evening :) Let's get started!


    This elegant column dress is the {RE} G Dark Rose Dress, one of the dozen gifts awaiting your visit. It is provided in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique mesh bodies, and features a split color of black on one side and purple on the right. On the sheer part of the high neckline there is a beautiful purple rose mentioned in the name, and there is a striking bow at the waist that is part of the intricate texturing. 


    The holiday season gets even sexier thanks to this next gift, the {RE} G Lil Witchy Dress. Its top is mostly sheer fishnet with material in just the right places, above a cloud of bats flying in front of a full moon. The back has even more bats, or are they secretly vampires who have transformed? The skirt has a fun pattern of bones, witches hats and more, on a deep green field. Like all of tonight's gifts, it is provided in Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizes. 


    Since these two are the same style, I decided to show you both versions side by side. On the left I am wearing the {RE} G Dark Tricks Dress, and on the right is {RE} G Sweet Treats Dress. Each has a daring side cutout held in place with slender straps, and I really like both textures. The playful bats are delightful, and the familiar pattern on the right is also wonderful for the Halloween season.


    This gift could make a great costume, or be used for roleplaying if you are so inclined. It is called {RE} G Naughty Maid Mini, and comes in the same sizes as all of tonight's dresses (Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique). I was impressed by the texturing, as the pert bow in the back and even the frilly white apron on the front are not add-ons but actually drawn onto the fabric itself. 


    For my final look of the night, I chose the dramatic {RE} G Vamparella Dress. It has detached sleeves that are laced at the top, and partly sheer as the dress itself is. Those silver bats look like they were crafted by a master silversmith, don't they? I am ready to party the night away in this sexy look!

    I have a quick update on my grandmother, fortunately she was released from the hospital with 2 new prescriptions and is thrilled to be home. I am just relieved that she is doing well and is back where she is comfortable. I have a chiropractor appointment tomorrow which is a bit overdue and much needed :) It should be sunny and nice out, so I am looking forward to some fresh air. I hope you're all having a terrific day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

    Trick or Treat Lane

     Hiya everyone! Tonight I have some treats to show you, quite literally, thanks to the Trick or Treat Lane event. This is the 5th round of the annual tradition, and every participating designer is offering an exclusive sales item as well as a trick or treat gift. Some are treats and located in the bag out front of their display, others are tricks where the bag is hidden somewhere within their booth. It was great fun to visit, and I am always impressed by the way the region is decorated for the spooky season. Many designers have other offers, some of which are discounted for the duration of the event, which is open until November 1st so you have ample time to explore and visit as many times as you wish.


    My first look of the evening is the striking gift from Senzafine called Evanora - ToTL Haunted. It comes in sizes for eBody, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine bodies. The blending of blue into purple then black is perfect for the night sky, and the bats are a lovely seasonal touch. The high-low hem and flared sleeves also serve to flatter our curves. 


    1313 Mockingbird Lane is ready for Halloween with their Burtonesque Jacket/Skirt, a gorgeous combo in black and white with golden trim. Each piece is rigged to fit the Maitreya body, and can be worn together or separately as you will see in the next couple of photos. There is also a HUD included to show/hide the panties that are built into the skirt. I decided the neckline deserved to frame more than just cleavage, LOL, so I added the charming Arachnes Necklace w/Resize gift from Oubliette. It has a family of gemstone spiders crawling around the silvery web, and you can just give it a click if you wish to access the resize scripting.


    I kept the 1313 skirt on here but switched tops to the gift from JR Wolf Creations. Their Hallows T Shirt is decorated in several different occult symbols, all in a silvery tone that looks terrific against the black backdrop of the shirt. It is provided in sizing for Alice, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Maitreya Petite, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine bodies. To add a touch of color, I went with the treat from CELESTE which is their Spiked Hoop Earrings, although I did it a little differently than one might expect ;) The gift includes a purple pair and a green pair, so I wore one of each to allow you to see both pretty hues. 


    The 1313 skirt got a little more use, as I wore it again here with the zOOm - Hunted Sweater. Their gift includes Freya, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizes, with cropped hem and extra long sleeves to balance against the cowl neck. The contrasting textures coordinate quite nicely, and do have a seasonal feel that I appreciate. I also am appreciating the tasty treat from Petrichor, their :[P]:- Geobeat Cookie [Halloweenies] seen in my left hand. It has a built in hold pose as shown, and the lines of icing remind me of wireframe. The heart shape looks so pretty with the ombre of orange to purple icing, on a dark chocolate cookie.


    For my final look tonight I started with the gorgeous gift from Viki called Faith. It features one of my favorite color combinations, purple and black, and has a rich, beautifully embroidered texture. It comes in Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizing to fit a wide range of bodies. With the bare shoulders and low neckline, I decided it deserved to show off the equally pretty CHIMAERA - Valentine collar - Rainbow Noir. So many dazzling colors in the heart pendant, I think you will find it goes well with nearly anything you wear it with. I was also intrigued by the gift from Secret Oktober, which is the *SO* Skulls n' Roses Mask I am wearing. It has a resize script built in, so you can adjust it to fit your face just right. I also couldn't resist sharing a closer view of the nails I have been enjoying in all of these images, the treat from DP Koffin Nails called FatPack - Pentacle Moon. There are 6 designs, 3 colors each with a mirrored version, and the fatpack means you get Maitreya, Omega, and Slink appliers. Each has fingers and toes compatibility, so you could apply one design to your fingers and a different choice for your feet. 

    Not much to share about my day, as it was fairly quiet other than an update on my grandmother. She was admitted for observation and should be released tomorrow, and it sounds like she is doing pretty well. She had high blood pressure before, and anything heart related is going to be a concern for a stroke survivor I guess, but things sound like they are under control. My guess is that a medication needed to be added or adjusted, and all the testing will point them in the proper direction. She is impressively tough, as we have always known :) I do hope you are all having a fantastic day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

    It Was a Graveyard Smash

     Hiya everyone! Tonight we continue along the Monster Mash Hunt path, looking for those cute ghosts hiding behind a tree with the full moon above them. You can hunt for the hidden one to claim each prize for just $1L, or you can purchase the prizes at the hunt sign for $25L if that is your preference. The hints, landmarks, and most preview photos are on the hunt website, so you will want to have that available while you take part in the adventure. The hunt lasts until the 31st, Halloween, which is quite fitting of course :)


    When you claim the prize at Georg Bellic Design, you will receive both the male and female prizes they have designed for this hunt. This of course is the ladies' gift called Ella Dress & Jacket, which are linked together and worn as one piece in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique bodies. There is also a HUD provided with 3 choices each for our dress and the jacket, so you can mix and match as you wish.


    This cozy looking outfit is our hunt prize from The Sissy Bar, which they have simply named Monster Mash Hunt. The sweater comes in standard mesh sizes along with eBody, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine body sizing. The coordinated leggings are included in system/BOM layers and an Omega applier, so there is considerable compatibility there. 


    This prize from Dragonmoon Designs just screams Halloween! It is called [DD] Lady Ghost MMH, and is one of two hidden hunt objects since there is one for the men also (so be sure to follow the correct hint!). The long jacket and short shorts are each included in sizes for Freya, Venus, Maitreya, Ocacin, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, Tonic Fine, and Voluptuous mesh bodies. The belt is built into the jacket, which also features bold cuffs and collar. The gift for guys has a preview image on the hunt's site so you can see if your favorite male avatar wearer is interested too.


    I am really impressed by the prize from Uni Boutique, which is this lovely Strapless Mini - Gothic Red. It is technically only strapless in the front, as there are two golden chains across the back and one leading up to the neck where it loops around front to create a beautiful choker. It comes in Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP sizing. I think I will find myself wearing this beauty year-round!


    My final look of the evening is also red and black, and distinctly flirty. It can be found at Dixie Designs, and is their DD Skull micro mini Blood which comes in two versions. The original and sheer are each provided in standard mesh sizes plus Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP sizing. I am wearing the sheer version here to show you both front and back, and in the original style it is solid black beneath the red skull overlay, even where you see the sheer areas here. Fun side note - this store is located on one of my favorite sims, The Wash, where there will be another cart sale next month :) 

    When someone needs to speak to me on the phone rather than via text, I immediately feel a strong sense of dread that it is going to be bad news. So when my mom said she needed to call, it was not a surprise that she had to start with "I think she's okay, but...". Long story short (or at least shorter), she has elevated blood pressure and an irregular heartbeat so they are trying to get her admitted to an overcrowded hospital. She has been waiting in the emergency department for more than a full day at this point, thanks to a spike in covid cases in the area recently. I pointed out to my mom that if something were seriously wrong with her, they would be pushing her to the front of the line for a room, so in a weird way it might be a positive sign that they aren't in a hurry. She will keep me updated, and I will do my best to stay calm. Meanwhile I hope you've all enjoyed your weekend, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

    They Did The Monster Mash

    Hiya everyone! Tonight we are doing the Monster Mash, not the song exactly but a $1L gridwide hunt called Monster Mash Hunt. Each store has a hidden hunt item for $1L with the option to purchase it instead from near the sign for $25L if you prefer not to hunt for it. And what are we looking for? That would be a cute ghost peeking out from behind a bare tree with a bright full moon above him, probably looking for some monster friends to play with :) For now he is playing hide and seek with us though, and the hunt's website will provide the links to each store as well as hints and even previews of most of the prizes he is holding. I also have something very special to show you tonight, an outfit that is part of a charity sale near and dear to my heart. 



    First we have the jacket/tank top combo from ZFG called Carbon, which can be yours for just $1L if you find the hidden one or $25L if you purchase from near the hunt sign. It comes in Freya, Hourglass, Legacy, and Maitreya sizes, with a HUD that lets you change the tank top texture to your choice of 8 monochromatic patterns. With its neutral colors, the possibilities are endless to pair it with, whether you are in the mood for classic jeans or a fun skirt. I am wearing it with the black jeans from the Delizio marketplace gift fatpack that finds their way here quite often.



    Maybe pumpkins are one of your most preferred signs of this spooky season, well have I got a prize to tempt you with! This is the Go Frock Yourself treat called GFY-Pumpkin Patch Deep Cut Mini Dress, with a name that sums up the description very nicely. It is provided in standard mesh sizes along with Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique versions, all with a HUD offering 7 color choices for the lush velvety background. The two I picked for the above image are probably less traditional Halloween hues, although the dark blue reminded me of a night sky.



    Cats n' Kittens Boutique was inspired by Alice in Wonderland it seems, and is offering their CnK: We're All Crazy Here as the Monster Mash hunt prize. It comes in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique mesh bodies, and is decorated with several cheshire cat eyes and grins. A bit of advice I will give you to help find this particular prize is to make sure you are using your camera controls and looking both high and low. 



    It certainly would be a shame if you missed out on this hunt prize from Shame ;) This is their Jackie MonsterMash Dress, including Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique mesh body sizes. There is an intricate design on the front of the skirt, most noticeable being the star with an eyeball peeking out from the center. That might be an ouroboros surrounding it, a (winged) serpent biting its own tail which I believe symbolizes infinity, life and death. 



    For my final look of the evening, I would like to invite you to visit the ACS I Pink I Can event. That would be the American Cancer Society, and our event is for breast cancer research which I have several reasons to feel passionately about. Many of us have lost friends or family to that disease, or are lucky enough to have survivors among our loved ones (my 94 year old grandma is a survivor!) so I am eager to spread the word. My outfit here is the exclusive offering from Entice, their Only Exception Top & Skirt - Bubblegum. For a $150L donation, all of which goes directly to the charity, you will receive the full skirt and two versions of the striped top, with and without the heart on the front, each in Freya, Hourglass, Legacy, and Maitreya sizing. I recommend using the red arrow from your map to find this specific item, and I also urge you to enjoy browsing and see if you can find other ways to contribute to this worthy cause. There are raffles and gachas, and the vendors are offering a wide variety of items in more than just the color pink. I entered a couple of raffles for gift cards from different stores, and played a couple of random gachas while I was there this morning.

    I am feeling like I am running behind tonight, as I have been fairly distracted while working on my post here. It hasn't been anything negative, just various conversations and things that needed my attention. I have a few things planned for the upcoming week, which means relaxing tomorrow will be even more appreciated. The weekend is flying by, isn't it? I hope you're all having a terrific day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!
