I hear cries of "BEWBS"!! Yus there is nipple action, but it's tasteful, and you could always wear a skin coloured pastie underneath if you so choose!! Now this next concoction is also available in store. I didn't quite know what to do, except photograph it to show you! There is so much more I want to do with this outfit photo wise, it's just screaming for some more creativity than I've shown here today!!

It is called Post Human Baroques. And yes that is a fish in my hair!! It actually comes with 2 hairstyles but I've just shown the one. Also, I have fired up an old alt of mine, Ashia Timeless. She has a nice empty inv, as mine is now pushing 40,000 items. So if you see her running round the grid, say hai hehehe. Also you can drop cards and such on that av, it has a better chance of not being lost!

The Reluctant Neko

When I first tp'ed into into Izumiya, my first reaction was, "Woah." (Not to be confused with Joey's "woah" from the tv show "Blossom." It was more like a Keanu Reeves kinda "woah.") I grabbed my girl IsabellaGrace Baroque ("Bella" for short) of Who let the dorks out? fame and we both attempted to figure out what we should do with this giant heap of freebie lurve. The conversation went something like:

A: So how about we be nekos?
I: I don't really do the neko thing all that well.
A: Me neither. I'm completely crap.
[a few moments pass while contemplating]
A: Let's do it!
I: \\o//...

All of the items from Izumiya are either free of $1L, but there are so many freebies and dollarbies that I couldn't keep track of which was what! It's like a shopping spree up on the 2nd floor!

I have on the Izumiya "Bad Cat" pendant, cat hip bag, and one of the tank tops in the Izumiya tank top set. I also have on Tuli's "Emily" group gift skin and blue cat eyes that are a subscribe-o-matic gift from Tesoromio, one of my new favorite stores! The subscribe-o-matic has a ton of free gifts stored in it - just click it and look through the history. I picked up a stack of bracelets there because I just couldn't help myself (not free). The boots are those kyoot free Katatonik on Axis Mundi legwarmer boots I keep blogging.

The ridiculously awesome low-riding dark denim that goes with everything jeans are a lucky chair prize from Fluky, another one of my favorite stores for reasonably priced and adorable clothing. Fluky has a wall of free and dollarbie stuff that is totally worth checking out too. The designer, Bronwen Llewlyn, has a great sense of humor that you can see in her designs and zany little things she has in her store (and in her subscribe-o-matic!).

Other non-free stuffs include the neko ears from [OZ] Hiding Place, my new *DP* yum yum hair ($120L I think), and the +Plus leather gloves that were a great buy for $50L (check out the shop every month for a new freebie!).


Bella has on Izumiya's cat tattoo, key pendant (comes in a set of 4), coveralls, and bracelets. She also has some gray leg warmers that were a Kurotsubaki group gift (no longer available). The non free items include her Mia Snow 2 skin, Neko's Obsession tail, "Hello Kitty" SWEET LEOnard ears, and Urban Bomb Unit PornStars.

I'll watch over you, Kitteh Bella! Awwz. We are kyoot nekos, even if reluctant ones, no? The pose I'm busting out to sit next to Bella was a freebie from one of my favorite pose shops, Vital.

And I couldn't help but have us cheese near some of the cheeky signs in Hysteria. Same gear on, but I'm also holding the "Bad Cat" stuffed animal from Izumiya (who is naughtily smoking a ciggie) for $10L. But nope, no drama here. Just neko-ness.


Bella trotted off to more exciting things, and I snapped one more pic using one of the MANY free poses from Izumiya. I tell you, this place is a goldmine. The only new thing I am wearing is a scarf from Kittylicious that I got as a freebie from the German Fashion Expo. (Please forgive me but yer on yer own finding that stall - no time today for link crusading, alas.) And not a sign of bling anywhere. [grateful sigh]


Two reluctant nekos over and out.

Lucky Lucky Ash!

I love Silent Sparrow. I love the clothes, I love Hya, I love the sim......have I mentioned I love Hya?! I have gladly spent my last lindens when she's released a new outfit and will no doubt do it again and again! The prim work, the textures, dude EVERYTHING is my idea of perfect.



So when I got a notice saying there was a new outfit in the lucky chair, off I went!!! I have been trying on and off for a couple of days to get this. It's made of gorgeous. I had to have it, I just had to!!! After being there for 2 cycles today, I actually got usurped.....emo! But I prevailed eventually woot!!! This outfit is yummm. It's a mixture of the Thorns and Beloved suits.



Check it out for yourselves.....awesome no? So whooping with delight, I tp'd to Ivalde to have a wander round. as soon as I landed, I got an IM saying it was my letter on the lucky chair upstairs!!!



Like I've said in previous posts, I rarely win stuff, now 2 outfits in one day zomg!! This oufit is just darling. The colour is to die for, and the skirt is the right kinda swishy! I can't wait to get back to the store and spend some lindens, I just had to show you guys first!



And lastly, but by no means least, a gorgy swimsuit from the Rosemar group. It's in keeping with the retro theme I started with the Ivalde dress. A lush lime green Pinup swimsuit woot!!



There is a joining fee for the Rosemar group, but she is beyond generous with us, giving out gifts for reasons such as "I just noticed there wasn't a gift left in the notices for you guys" Gotta love her!! And with that Ash is out to spend some cash at the above stores....yay!!!

The hairstyles and skins worn in the above two photo's can be found in the hunt, (not the outfits), click on the pic for more info on the free outfits worn.

More Info copied from Helena's notecard

"Link was passing through my forest, and it seems his pouch of rupees had a hole. Now it is your task to collect them all up!

This will take place at the main HQ spot, on the whole lot, both levels, in Lyashko, at the Stringer mens store and grounds at Mapinguari, and also at my sister's store and grounds at the same site, just walk out of the mens store and you'll see hers!

In the folder with this notecard is a sample of the colours and sizes of the rupees (NOTECARD WILL BE PASSED TO THE FREE*STYLE AND STRINGER GROUP). Wear it to see the sizes that you are looking for. The largest is the green, next blue,red, then lastly gold. The type of rupee determines the type of gift. Here is a rundown:

Greens: 3 mens-skin&hair, 7 unisex-hair&eyes 10 womens-skin&hair
Blues:, 2 unisex-odd items, 4 womens-complete avitar&skin
Reds: 8 unisex-pets/hair/horns3 womens-eyelashes/hair/hat
Golds: L$100 gifttcard, L$250gifttcard, L$400gifttcard


Now the gold rupees are brought out at random, one each day of the hunt. Sometimes it may be more, like the first day, and after that whenever I want to put out extra. Join my group"Stringer's followers-info group" to know how many on which day, and how much it is.

The gold rupees will only be hidden in my actual stores, just so it's a bit easier to find, rather then it being the WHOLE grounds. So just the Shrine, Mausoleum and the Mens stores.

Hunt Locations:
The Stringer HQ's
The Stringer Men's store
C&D Designs

If you want to bring a friend and help each other find stuff thats great, but for the sake of the rest who might want to enjoy, please don't yell out where the rupees are. Also if someone is desperate to find something, don't answer by shouting, just im them, if you know where it is.

I am willing to give out hint, to my group if you are in it. Just open the group chat, and I'll give you a hint. You have to ask nice though.

Hint: You can find one of the lost rupees somewhere near the cherry tree, at C&D designs. It is a Special Edition hair, not to be resold!

Happy Hunting
Helena Stringer"

Huntastic!

I loves hunts like woa! The Piece Of Candy hunt is dead easy, and the prizes are kyoooot! As soon as I saw the first outfit, I knew exactly how I wanted to wear it!





Also another good excuse to drag out my fave hair from CreamShop, it's not free but comes with 4 different options in the pack, so well worth it!
Next up is a super sweet outfit from ITSF. The skirt comes in two colours, gotta love options!



I was just wandering a sim when I came across this store, and what a nice surprise it was!



I'm also happy to bring you an outfit from a relatively new designer. Jennylynn Capalini owns the Peeps store. I was lucky enough to meet her and have a chat, she's lovely and put up with my inane questions very patiently lol. I was totally devoid of caffeine at the time XD! She has a freebie wall in her store that she plans to add to weekly. The top and skirt are just two examples of what you can find there.



And last, a couple of dresses I found thanks to a tip in the comments. I think it was from Eden (will go back and check!) *Edit: It was Eden Knoller who left me the tip...thankyooo Eden! There are four yummy dresses to be had from Fumi.



I've just shown two of them here. They have system skirts, so once again I took my eyesight in my hands and braved the new rc for you!! They really are lovely and I'm amazed that they're
free.



We really are very lucky in Phil's Place, we can be who we want and escape the mundane and look amazing while doing it thanks to our generous designers. Huge huggles to all the designers I have shown today, either for your freebs or full priced shtuff. I heart yooooooos!
