– No mesh body parts required. This one’s for system avatars!
– Absolutely free!

Hi peeps!

I’m feeling the 70s glam today with this fab red sparkly jumpsuit from Spyralle, which can be found at The Free Dove this month as part of the February Hunt there.

You need to join the Free Dove group and have your group tag active while you click on the hunt items. More info about the Spyralle gifts and the other two stores participating in the February hunt can be found by clicking the hunt kiosk on your left when you land at The Free Dove. For this Spyralle hunt you’re looking for teeny little green gift boxes with purple bows.

And, since we’re going full 70s here, we need some big floofy hair, which I found in the shape of this big fatpack of mesh hair by Sentinus, also at Free Dove on the wall dedicated to free hair. It comes with a 20-colour-change HUD containing lots of naturals and some pretty pastels:

Lastly, the makeup is from a big freebie pack from Alaska Metropolitan, here on Marketplace.

The skin is from the default Kimberley avatar and the eyes are from the default Iliana avatar, both of which can be found in your inventory’s Library section, under Clothing > Initial Outfits. The shoes are also from the Iliana avatar :)

*taps blog*

Is this thing still on? It is? Oh, good!


I can’t promise that I’m back for good, but let’s see how things go, shall we? This will be a little bit of an adminny sort of post to begin with, but I have some bargains for you, too.

First up: When I logged on and saw how much my weekly stipend had added up to, I realised that Mar could afford a mesh body bit or two. So that’s one positive change around here: I can blog about cheapies (and freebies, although I think those might be a bit thinner on the ground!) that are specifically fitted for mesh bodies and mesh body parts, as well as non-mesh body stuff. That also means (wheee!) nail appliers, of which there’s a plethora of cheap-n-free options out there on Ye Olde Marketplace.

The financial focus of the blog will therefore shift a wee bit. I’ll try to stick as much to the old ethos of a L$75 maximum spend, but when it comes to things like skins with appliers and whatnot, I’ll probably do some special posts with a L$500 limit (or something thereabouts; I’ll feel it out as I go along).

The mesh bodies and body parts that Mar now has and will be blogging things for are:

  • Slink Physique Body
  • Maitreya Lara Body
  • Slink hands
  • Slink feet (flat, mid, and high – and I may get the kitten feet at some point, but those will do for now)

OK, so with that out of the way, onto the bargainage! I’m going to yoink you back into Halloween mode, because Ricielli’s Halloween Hunt items are still out in the store, and there are some scrummy bits to be found there. Here’s the look Mar put together for a paltry L$30 total:

The blouse and skirt are together in pumpkin #13 (which costs L$15) and only come in the colours shown. The heels are in pumpkin #8 (which also costs L$15) and those come in blood, midnight, potion, and pumpkin colours. The fit options are as follows (lordy, this bit’s going to be a tedious addition to the blog, I can tell!) –

Blouse & Skirt

  • Belleza Freya and Isis
  • Slink Physique and Hourglass
  • Maitreya Lara


  • Slink
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • TMP

Here’s your limo to Ricielli. Make it snappy, because I don’t know how much longer those pumpkins will be out for!

Oh, and here’s Ricielli’s image for all the hunt items. Each one costs L$15:

Seldom a fool? *nudge* Geddit? *sigh* Yep, I think that’s my worst title pun to date ;)

Ladies! Hie thee to Seldom Blue and hunt for a pumpkin, to find this lovely free dress. Here’s a wee clue for you: It’s easy to find, but you must look behind/For this dress full of class, take yourself to the glass.

Hrm. I should’ve been a poet!

Also in this look are a fabby pair of earrings, which are a gift from Fulo! at the Flawless sim. Right now, there’s a cart sale at Flawless. Each designer has a small cart full of items on it, at least one of which is priced at just L$50. So hop over there and see if anything takes your fancy!

Weekend smarts with R.icielli, YS&YS, and MichaMi

Holy cow, I haven’t blogged a Dressing Room collection for ages! The new one is a good’un, though, so here are a couple of items from it, together with one item from the latest mesh clothing hunt at R.icielli :)

The Statement in Pink mesh skirt is from MichaMi at The Dressing Room. Mar has teamed it with just one item – the Blake Jacket in black – from R.icielli’s new Halloween Mesh Hunt, at their mainstore’s mesh department. There are 20 items hidden in the store (they’re very easy to find; just look for the big pumpkins!). Each item costs L$15 to buy, so even if you grab the lot you’ll only be spending roughly what you might pay for any full-price mesh item at any top store :)

Mar’s skin is the oh-so-pretty Sofia Fresh skin from YS&YS at The Dressing Room, and her earrings are a free group gift from Bliensen + Maitai at the Violet Mafia location. Paste this link into chat and click it to join the Violet Mafia group (it’s free, but a busy group, so you might want to disable group notices and check manually once a week), then head to the Violet Mafia Headquarters & Speakeasy, where you’ll find tons of great freebies. Just wear your Violet Mafia group tag and get clicking!

Not free/cheap items in the pic: Shoes are by HoC Industries, hair by Truth, eyes by IKON, nails by Love Soul, poses by Glitterati.

Hop behind the cut for a pic of all the items in the R.icielli hunt :)

Update: Comments now disabled because this post was attracting spammers.

I’ve got some scrummy stuff for you today!

First up, there’s a new group gift skin at Al Vulo! The group is free-to-join (paste this link into chat and click it to bring up the group join window) so wear your group tag and head to the Al Vulo! store, then click the ad board inside the little shed outside.

Next, Mar is wearing part of the Finding FabFree hunt gift – a mesh top and mesh pants – from PurpleMoon Creations. You’re looking for a sculpted white number 5. At PurpleMoon, find the small poster advertising the hunt, and look for the footprints on the floor. They’ll lead you in the right direction! Full prize piccy is after the cut.

Finally, there are two gorgeous group gifties from PurpleMoon Creations. The group is L$50 to join (paste this link into chat and click it) so wear your group tag and head inside the store to the lobby area. You’ll find the lovely golden Elwing Gown on a big board there, which celebrates 17,000 members (wow!), and if you check the group’s notices you’ll also find the bonus earrings!

Hop behind the cut for two more pics of all the items :)

Ricielli is one of the best places for finding cheap mesh content, when they have their frequent store hunts! The current hunt is called the Valentines Brazilian Hunt. If you head to the Ricielli store you’ll find 19 pink heart balloons in the mesh department and one pink heart balloon in the skins department. Each balloon costs L$15 to buy, and most contain mesh clothing or accessories. There are large pictures all around the sim, showing you all the hunt prizes, so you can note down the numbers of the things you really want and go looking for those balloons, or you can click here to see the image. They’re really easy to find!

Here, Mar has put together an elegant look from six of the hunt items (please note: the hairpiece is just a side ponytail; Mar had to find a hairbase to go with it!). The hairpiece, dress, boots, and bag are all mesh items. The hairpiece comes in multiple colours, and the makeup is a multiple pack with lots of different palettes.

Ladies, there is the most insanely gorgeous pair of mesh ankle boots waiting for you out there, and they’re absolutely FREE!

Gospel Voom, of GoS, has put this fabulous pair of pink Desire mesh ankle boots out as the store’s gift for the Mesh Around Hunt. The prize includes five rigged mesh sizes (for the newbies here, rigged mesh cannot be resized, hence you get several sizes in the pack, but they are directly attached to your avatar’s skeleton, so they move more realistically when you move) plus a bonus unrigged pair (which can be resized).

The Mesh Around Hunt blog is here, complete with all the SLurls you need, plus hints to prize locations. The hunt runs until June 15th :)

Brighten up wintertide with Rfyre

Hi, peeps! Yesterday Mar went to Rfyre to grab the gorgeous Wintertide Tux from the Womenstuff Hunt. Hey, it’s purple, which is her favourite colour, and it comes with multiple layers, including a skirt (if you don’t want to wear pants), two styles of pants, multiple neck options (bow tie, simple collar, collar-with-necktie, etc), and even undies!

The hunt clue for this prize is: “Place your self upon a pedestal and urn your prize…..”, which is reaaaally easy ;)

Mar has accessorised with a lipstick from a great freebie pack by R.icielli, which you can find here on Marketplace, prim nails from Love Soul, and versatile boots from HoC Industries. Her hair is a male style from the freebie wall at Exile.

Summer huntin’, had me a blast

OK, this has probably been blogged to hell and back everywhere else, but I’ve been away and it’s my turn to blog it, dammit! :P

R.icielli is running a Summer Hunt at their mainstore. There are 20 golden shells to find (they’re really easy to spot, so it’s a simple hunt) and inside each shell is a fabulous item. The shells cost L$15 each to buy, but consider this: if you buy all of them you’ll be getting 20 items for the price of one or two of the most expensive items in the store. That’s one heck of a bargain!

Here are just three of the items that Mar put together into a great outfit:
