I’ve rewritten this post so many times but lucky for you lot I’ve decided to bin all those long and rambling posts and just tell you about the event and also show you this excellent bargain-priced Halloween decor item.
I went to the Swank event which is a monthly event and in celebration of Halloween has oodles of hunt gifts out for you but you will have to scan and cam for them because the roses you’re looking for can be either very small or very faint and in some cases both so I’m pretty sure I didn’t get as many that are out for us because as soon as I got to the back of the shop/mall I spotted a big entrance with a sign that said something “do you dare enter” MEH of course I dare! What lies beyond that door I will leave for you to find but as you can see from this picture it’s worth a visit.

And as I was wandering around I spotted this.
It’s the burnt out shell of I believe the very house I’m in and one click turns it back into a burning inferno.
Then when I prim checked ONLY 2 PRIMS so I had to check it some more.
It comes from a marketplace shop called “Gothic Horror Shop Biker Store” and although there is an inworld shop it seems to be pretty poorly stocked compared to the MP one. The MP shop has oodles of Dollarbies, 10Ld and other low priced Halloween stuff and even at 50lds for this burning house the quality of it and the low primage makes it a steal. I promise I have actually bought it but since it was set out already I decided to be cheeky and just take the picture there and then. My one and only small moan is that it comes linked to the table it’s sat on, not a biggie and no I haven’t had time to see if it could be unlinked etc but it’s nothing. Honestly you need to check it out
AND of course I still haven’t finished the rest of the Hunt in the main shopping mall and I’ve not even unpacked anything I’ve picked up so far

ohmai – I started a bit of a giggle-snort when this new little frock from Neve hit my paws – NOT because of the dress but – Dolores was the fake name I used to give guys (along with my fake telephone number) when I wasn’t interested in them ! Ahhhh the memories – seriously though, Dolores isn’t a common name and they believed me?! Anyhooo onto the buzz, this IS “Dolores”, well one version of it anyway. I’m wearing the “Layered” option, and I was immediately taken with this faded antique blue. Just love the slightly puffed sleeves and sweet details round the hem. Easy to wear and mix in with other pieces in your wardrobe. I say it’s a dress but you know whut? It works as a tunic too – key item to grab, you will wear it heaps. Thanks Neve team❤

Hair by no match @ The Liason Collaborative
Tres Chic has been open for a few days now – so a great time to go and avoid the lag. Chez Moi have this adorable well as their item. Two options – adult or PG. Really beautifully executed, with fluttering butterflies and some fantastic animations – check it out!
Here is just one of the new releases from Neve – its called “pull over” and I’m wearing the stripe version. Really nifty thing is you can remove the under layer and change its colour/pattern! Ultimate in flexibility, gotta love that. Other versions available, so snuggly for the season. Pack includes a HUD with colour options and you get: Standard Sizes XXS, XS, SM, M- Maitreya Lara- Belleza Isis and Freya Natural Fitted – Slink Physique and Hourglass Fitted. Thanks Neve team❤

Finally got myself over to Kustom9 not only because there is a new Mina but also a SHED load of gifties out for just 9Lds each. So I clicked and clicked and I even treated myself to a couple of Gacha’s and won not just a cute deer for our sim but the Rare skybox from Heikei(anyone wants a skybox? I have way too many so if you want it just drop me a note).
I didn’t buy everything as when you click on the gift boxes for the most part they tell you what is in them so since I’m not a big jewelry or bag wearer I gave those a miss. So I’ve got some of the decor items scattered around but check out my “look of the day”.
Ignore the eyes! not from this event and I don’t think I will be wearing them again as they’re just weird. OK believe it or not that’s a MINA for just 9LDs and as standard even with her special offers you get the full pack of brown shades and that might just be 5 shades but they are different, I’ve had hair colour packs where you couldn’t even see any difference. So you have the brown going from light to dark and again ONLY 9Ld! If you do have some Lindens to spend then check out the last picture for the full priced Mina but not everyone has or wants to spend a lot of money on their SL lives so to be able to give something to those on a budget is absolutely wonderful. Now check out my “rack” lol. This figure hugging top is from Kitja and it’s gorgeous a real keeper and then when I put on the jeans from the Spirit stall I was so pleased that they make a great match and then the shoes off the Momento stall again turn out to be the icing on the cake…or the look of the day.
I’m keeping these all and I don’t know if anyone does it but we should do it more which is to keep everything that makes a great look in the same folder. It makes getting dressed in SL so much quicker and easier. You used to be able to drag and drop the whole contents of your folder onto yourself and Voila you were dressed from head to toe but that was well before Mesh body bits.
Which has just reminded me, the jeans and top come in mesh body fits and the shoes SLink and Maitreya…damn I’m going to have to log back in to check….yes the top and jeans are for SLink Original/ Hourglass and Maitreya Lara sizing but also the jeans and the shoes are for SLink and Maitreya feet. If you don’t have a mesh body don’t let that put you off picking these up as it just means you will have to rummage in your invent for an alpha to fit and chances are they will fit you perfectly fine.
Be warned there is some new designs at this round of Kustom9 which got me looking and counting my Lindens so if you’re easily tempted you might just want to rush in grab the 9Ld gifts and rush out but if you want to stand out with some pretty darn good new looks then treat yourself.
Here is the full priced Mina called Estelle and TBH with such a generous gift sat there I think Mina is probably shooting herself in the foot but again if you have Lindens to spend plus you want hair in another shade pack then try
Couldn’t think of a snappy title for this post TBH can’t think at all the best I can manage is to sit here and moan…actually I’m starting to feel much better today. My friend who gave me this cold popped in with an armload of cold remedies and treats to cheer me up, she is now forgiven and I’m starting to feel less like warmed up poo….I still made the postie flinch this morning when I answered the door though LOL.
So I have the energy to do a little quickie which isn’t just a Freebie but is also one of the 35Ld items I picked up from the Spooky Scary Sales yesterday. So the dress is the 35Ld item and the Umbrella is the freebie from Bella Epoque.
Actually, I already had this dress in my invent and so now I have 2 but sadly neither are Trans. The sim wind light was so dark so you can’t really make out the texturing etc but it’s a dark brown velvety top with a patterned ruched bottom can’t even think of the sort of material it’s called but think Victorian and you will know what I mean. You only get the 1 size but it fitted me perfectly.
This is the Halloween Freebie from Belle Epoque and you will have to join the Free Group and it comes with a pose, not used. If I remember correctly it is just 7 prims if you want to rezz it as a decor item.
So I’m all dressed up as you can see and I have just enough energy to go on another hunt I’ve been given the heads up for so have a great day and I might just post more later.
PS if you’re not after anything spooky then the other GG from Belle Epoque is a rather pretty ribbon hair band.
I’m out for the count,dosed up to my eyeballs on Night Nurse, sucking on Strepsil’s, a pile of snotty tissues next to me and I’ve drunk so much coffee I swear my pee will be brown soon. TBH if it wasn’t for a couple of important deliveries I would be tucked up in bed but instead I’m stuck in my chair feeling very sorry for myself and when they come I swear I’m going to breathe my nasty cold germs over them!
So today is a super lazy post but the weekend is just around the corner and although this event goes on right to the end of the month I thought instead of unpacking a couple of the MANY gifts and showing you a few of them I’d just collapse where I was take the piccie and tell you all about it.
Called the “Spooky Scary Sales” and WOO HOO everything is only 35Lds, everything from clothes to decor items and of course lots aimed for Halloween but lots not. So many bargains I actually bought quite a few of the Gacha items but EVERY stall has a skull on it and the skull contains a GIFT! It’s almost overwhelming.
Because I’m still waiting for my deliveries I’m going to pop in another Strepsil and sit on my platform unpacking and trying to take my mind off my aches and pains.
PS and of course I went back to LM grab and everything here is or was a 35Ld Sunday offer and if you walk to your right if you want even MORE gifts then join the Free 35Ld Sunday group and there are some boxes waiting for you there.
Spooky Scary Sales
Achoo…drat my BBF has given me her cold! So I’m sat here with my nose running and sneezing so hard I’m having “whoopsie” moments and I guess I must have sneezed just as I clicked to take this picture as I’m blinking!
This sexy Pirate outfit comes from Purplemoon Creations and for a 50Ld joining fee you get the hat the..achoo..dress…achoo…gloves…whoopsie…and a sword. As an added incentive, once you’ve joined you can then also join in the “Keep calm and give me candy hunt”. This is another hunt which time and effort have been spent in the design of it and fortunately, the hidden ..achoo…Mermaids aren’t hidden particularly well and you don’t have any …achoo…puzzles to work out.
I’ve had to take some Night Nurse just to try to dry up my streaming hooter!
Anyhow check out a close-up so you can see my skin as well and all in my Nams setting so you can see it how I see it.
The skin is of course a PumeC because although most of the stock is human skin there is a small range of Elven skin from this white one to black and they’re all so stunning and the hair is a New Mina but obviously it’s hidden mainly by the hat but of course although I don’t often use one of the white/grey shades as I always say Mina’s has everything from the blackest of blacks to the whitest of whites. This hair is from the Kustom 9 event and I’m going over there soon because I think there maybe FREEBIES! and not even a snotty nose keeps me away from them.
Here are some piccies of the hunt.
Where you land is where you can join the Group and the Group Gift is there, remember it’s 50Lds to join, but to get to the hunt just follow the wooden bridge which is just there.
I did most of the hunt it’s not over a vast area and managed to find most of the Mermaids which I’ve not unpacked as yet but I can see from what I have found that they have CLOTHES in them and I own a couple of items from Purplemoon which have survived many an invent culling esp a super sexy ladies suit! So I can’t wait to get back inworld and hunt down the rest of the prizes because I don’t want to miss any.
ACHOOO I mean Purplemoon Creations
