We’ll meet again, Don’t know Where~

But I know when ūüėČ

Huge apologies to my regular readers this week. Since my last post, I’ve been pretty crammed up with reality odds, ends, dramas and even the mundane stuff seems to have been taking an age. I am going away Friday morning – Sunday evening this week and unfortunately, that has meant more work. Booo!

So, while I am currently mid-progress with my next feature, this does mean that it will be delayed until Sunday night at least. I do apologise for this however, it’s been unavoidable this week. I just want to reassure you that regular updates will continue and, as always, try to keep my favouritees, bookmarkees and followers in the loop as to what’s going on here. I have not forgotten you and I shall return!

I am one person and unfortunately, this one person’s life interferes sometimes.

However….this gives me a chance to pimp my¬†write for fifty¬†page. If you want to see even more updates, love photography and have a passion for freebie hunting please give that page a glance. Fifty is a regular in many online blogging groups and is fast gathering a pretty prolific following so I would love to add to my team and make an even bigger success of this project.

We also passed the one month anniversary of the blog this week, (which I will be marking in a bumper edition for you all next week ūüėČ )and I’d just like to express my astonishment and thanks for the huge amount of support, feedback and tips I have received from you all. You have all supported me wonderfully and, in two weeks, I have seen a massive 200% increase in what was already a pretty impressive following for a blog of this age. So thank you and I sincerely hope to keep giving you more of what you like.

On a final note, if you’re really hungry for more while I’m away I strongly advise you to hop down page to my ‘More like this’ links page. You will find plenty of talented freebie and discount bloggers there to sate you until I return at the end of the week. Any fellow bloggers out there too, if you’d like a link exchange, I’d be more than happy to add you to my blogroll and would ask only that the favour be returned. I have had this favour done for me a couple of times already and would very much like to pass it on.

Take care all, have an awesome weekend,

See you on Sunday!

Under a Blood Red Sky

Okay so yeah, I’ve been playing with Windlight again ūüėÄ I was a little lazy today and, despite having the next three posts done and dusted just fancied something nice and whimsical and fairly er…easy to edit >.> Sowwy. What can I say, dear readers. It’s the weekend and I’m feelin’ laaazy. Anyways back to business:


Okay so a combination of Windlight and this very quirky flexy scarf from Curious Kitties¬†inspired this post, as you can see. You might remember my¬†No<thing¬†Panda backpack¬†from about a month back. Ever since then I’ve been a liiiiitle obsessed with the little black and white fellas so I positively squeed with delight when CK sent their latest group gift announcement out yesterday. The wee bear you see holding onto me for dear life is a Freebie from Love Factory¬†and he can be found in-store as well as many numerous Valentine’s themed gifts for under 50L. It’s girly, it’s cute and it’s effing adorable. Since this can be said of most gifts in-store, boys, you might want to head out early before February 14th rolls around ūüėČ

Alice is wearing…

Hair: Rosy Mood Myosotis free hair (0L) Fatpack

Scarf: =^.^= Curious kitties **NEW** group gift panda scarf (0L)

Panda: Love factory Hugsy teddy bear (0L)

Makeup: {MC} cosmetics gift (0L colour pack on marketplace)

Eyes: Dead Apples Real brown eyes (group gift 0L)

Along my travels I was also able to pick up a few freebies and check out the¬†Femboy hunt which began on January 15th – January 31st. A brief note on the hunt: the hunt is geared towards many of SL’s much loved and one of the most underrated SL communities (in my opinion) in second life:that of the femboy and sissy. Now, while I have found some very beautiful gifts while hunting, the gifts (which are 2L a pop) are aimed more towards female shapes and avatars. Having quite a few femboy friends, I’m quite disappointed that the effort hasn’t been made by a lot of retailers to accommodate those who love girly glam but don’t possess a great big set of boobs, so if you embark on the hunt expecting gifts for a male shape, you’ll be hard pressed to find many ūüėõ¬† That’s not to say the rest of us can’t profit from these fine creations however, and profit I have…


You will see me demonstrating one of the better gifts from the hunt from¬†1 hundred¬†– the beautiful ¬†Babe bodysuit¬†(More of the femboy gifts will come in subsequent posts). Detailed, classy and for want of a better word ‘pretty’ (Oh, Alice you slay us with your words – right?). You’ll also see this lovely, subtle¬†skin, a group gift from¬†Shiva¬†which perfectly sets off my group gift eyes from¬†Dead Apples. Aaaand the ears? One of the many freebies available at¬†Bare Rose mainstore and the only fantasy retailer I’ve found to be as generous with their gifts as Curious kitties. You’ll find everything there from accessories, clothing, kimono….even a fab face mask! I’ll using some of these gifts in posts to come so keep your eyes peeled.

Alice is wearing…

Outfit: 1 Hundred Babe bodysuit Femboy hunt gift (2L)

Skin: Shiva female group gift (0L)

Ears: Bare Rose Freebie (0L)

Gloves: *poc* pay as you like latex suit white (1l or whatever you wish to donate!)

Hair: D!VA Marie colour test pack collarbor88

Tail: *babydoll* Free white cotton bunnytail (0L – marketplace)


Finally, I just had to tag this one on the end! Having found the ears, I was having a bit of a potter through *RibboN*¬†and was quite intrigued by some their¬†gatchas. Needless to say, the luck of the draw gave me this cute doll dress which matches the ears fabulously. Notorious for their¬†generous lucky board mesh sweaters¬†(which you’ll find on the first floor, at the back – tip a very ancient post by FabFree), you can’t knock the prices at RibboN. Few things are over 50L and many are below: meshy, stylish, flexi and cheap. You can’t ask for more than that if you don’t fancy a bash at one of the gatchas. This particular one cost 25L and you have a one in (eight? I think XD) chance at a different colour combination.

Alice is wearing…

Dress: *RibboN* Winter Doll (whitexpink) gatcha gift (25L)

Boots: [L u x] previous hunt gift

Finally, if you fancy a bash at the Femboy hunt, here are the details and where to find your hints etc. Be aware that not all stores have their hints up yet but it IS worth popping along to a store since, at least seven out of ten which are unlisted will have their hint in-store. Also, I WANT TO SEE YOUR PICTURES! If you use anything featured Fifty, please do display and tag them ‘Alice Wylde’. I’d love to see your outfits! Don’t forget to tag your creators too and let them know what a great job they’re doing!



House Hunting….

It’s been a long day here in merry old England, it’s midnight and, considering that i had posted around this time last night, I thought I might take a trip around the grid to explore the numerous hunt notices I’ve had popping up in all directions from my groups/contacts/blogs list etc for tomorrow’s blog. Having said that, I went horribly offtrack and, without any particular real theme or purpose (just how we like it!) I randomly decided to build a little home for under 50L. Or at least a little sitting room ūüôā


I’ve numbered these from one to six and you’ll find my references below. The¬†Fireplace, Skybox (with little moon lamp) and shelves are from some of SL’s best furniture designers and are part of the¬†Cold Winter Nights Hunt which began this week. You can pick up each of these goodies by looking for the little snowflake instore for a very respectable 10L. The mannequin is from what next¬†and is a freebie, though while I couldn’t find it inworld, I did find it on the marketplace hence I’ve linked both for you cos I’m good like that. Finally, the heartshaped chair is a¬†freebie hunt prize from the Pimp My Valentine hunt¬†in¬†Ninight Creations. ¬†This little beauty is not only frikkin adorable but comes with so many poses it’ll make your head spin and all of the highest quality. I strongly suggest you visit Nininight if not just to LM this quirky little store for payday.¬†This hunt also began this week and I will be (hopefully) showing you some more of their prizes in the next few days.

1. Vespetine Skybox (10L – Cold Winter Nights hunt)

2. {what next} Paper Doll Mannequin (0L)
Inworld Store: http://slurl.com/secondlife/Hodgepodge/109/127/30
Marketplace: https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/what-next-Paperdoll-Mannequin/2163485

3. Fireplace from [ba] barnesworth anubis (10L – Cold Winter Nights hunt)

4. Shelf and picture frames Trompe Loeil (10 – Cold Winter Nights hunt)

5.NiNight Creations Heart Chair (0L – Pimp My Valentine hunt)

6. Glitterati Freebie Shopaholic’s Closet with Poses (0L)

Rug: Tynee Things Freebie Bedroom set (0L – Marketplace)

Just because every toon needs a home ūüôā Also shown is that wonderful¬†freebie animated closet¬†from¬†Glitterati¬†and made by the very talented (and very funny – watch her Youtube photography tutorials purely for the funniness) Katey Coppala. You’ll also notice me holding up my shopping bags here. The reason for this is simple. During my hunt, I got sidetracked (‘what, you? Never!’) and stumbled into the little greenhouse at the side of¬†!Go! where I find, for want of a better term, a shedload of very adorable dollarbies ūüôā


So, yes, you’re a wondering Alice, you come across a greenhouse full of dollarbies what do you think I did? You’re correct. Dear reader, I raided it.


Here you see me exploring the closet in search of something to wear. Not that I needed it since I might as well have trotted around in my undies all night given how adorable this particular dollarbie from !Go! is. In fact, I’m just gonna shut up. Anything you see me wearing that isn’t otherwise listed has either been featured or is from !Go!. ūüėõ

Alice is wearing…

Outfit: !Go! Lolita outfit (1L)


Alice is wearing….

Dress: !Go! Bloom dress (1L)


Finally, the skin you’ll have seen me in multiple times. While not strictly for fifty it’s from Al Vulo and is called Aisha from TDR Fair along with the eyes. A few other bits and bobs have been featured before too including my nifty little bunny ears from monso and boots from Bee Make but hey, what can I say. I have my favourites!

Alice is wearing…

Sweater: !Go! Moment of relax sweater (1L)

Hair: Catwa subscribo gift Candy (LIMITED – 0L subscribe/join group)

Boots: Beemake designs group gift

Leggings: !Go! Jeans dress pack (1L)

Bow: Monso group gift Bunny ears band (0L)

Finally for the hunters amongst us, here is the information and the links for info on the hunts featured:





Limited Time Fat Pack from Catwa 16th – 22nd January!

I was pottering around when the above came to my attention via a subscribe-o-matic. Yes, Catwa have released a fantastic group gift from the¬†16th until 22nd January.¬†This is a fatpack so there is pretty much every colour under the sun. Here are just a few of these cute hairstyles….


Every colour, every shade and even roots/no roots ^^ And all for the low low price of 0L! Pop down to the store before you miss them!

Catwa Group gift (LIMITED 16th – 22nd Jan):


Time limit seemed right that I should pop this bang on midnight 16th ūüėČ Well, here anyways. Happy Shopping!

Playing Dress Up With AngelWing~

**EDIT 16/01/2013***¬†Special thank you to¬†Lolaa, one of our readers who commented on this post with some extra info. You might remember me saying that I found the sale entirely by accident: Lolaa informs me that not only is there a sale but¬†with a group tag there are some additional items available for¬†free¬†in the back. If I have time I’ll follow this up but keep an eye out. Also the prices might¬†fall further once the creator adapts mesh¬†items into her store. I’ll keep you posted and thank you again Lolaa xxx

Hello Strangers! Reality bites as they say and so I’ve been awol for about three days. Rest assured though dear readers, I have no intention of stopping just yet. However, I fear I’ve changed a bit since last we met…


I’ve asked around and some of the most common requests for the site I’ve had are 1. Demons/fauns 2. Kinky stuff 3. Steampunk 4. Silks. Now, I don’t know how many of you who have come from Flickr or DA or been referred here some other way have tried looking for this stuff but the word on the street is….this stuff is pretty effing hard to find. But, it has been done within Fifty’s budget! Hurrah! At least in part anyway. Fans of Wishbox and Caverna Obscura, you’re going to love this…**Angelwing**, a very similar store for the thrifty, delivers, in my opinion the same quality as the above but for a shockingly amazing sale price of 25L. I do want to mix my posts up a bit more for Fifty but I found this place purely by accident and couldn’t pass up the chance to feature it since I don’t know how long the sale itself lasts. Also take note of my horns from Lemon Tea¬†which are still available on the¬†Luckyboards¬†instore¬†and¬†smudged mascara¬†I found¬†free on the marketplace:¬†

**EDIT 21/01/2013**¬†And another very special thank you to¬†Genna¬†from¬†SL Freebie Addiction¬†who has provided this tip below for another demonic skin for those of you who missed Al Vulo’s version: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Utopia%20Isles/227/29/403 Putting it up here since I know, like me, you all might come along click things and miss it LOL! You’ll also find the link to Genna’s site in my ‘More like this’ category. Strongly recommend you go check it out! xx

Alice is wearing….

Skin: Al Vulo – Devil is Woman (previous group gift no longer free)

Horns: Lemon Tea (0L)


Eyes: IKON New in 2013 hunt gift

Hair: Alice Project Helga New in 2013 hunt gift

Outfit Full length dress/accessories/wings **Angelwing** Timeless Dark Sale item (25L for the lot!!)

Makeup: ..::AKA::.. Black Tears Tattoo (0L – marketplace)



As well as some gorgeous fantasy gear, **Angelwing** also has an impressive selection of Gorean silks, complete with slave papers, strippable/removable attachments and some come with lockmeister scripts too!¬†The outfits are fully mod and come with¬†free shapes¬†too (not pictured) and optional sparkle tattoo layers¬†for the more whimsical amongst us (me XD). To top it all off, you get some additional¬†pieces of jewelry.¬†Not bad for¬†25L eh? The skin you see me in is a¬†dollarbie from My Ugly Dorothy¬†and the hair is a lovely gift found at¬†COLLABOR88 by D!VA.¬†More on that to follow…

Alice is wearing…

Silks/Jewelry/tattoo: Gold Sin Silks **ANGELWING** 25L


Hair: D!VA Marie Free at Collabor88 (0L)

Skin: My Ugly Dorothy 1L Skin 3

pose: Possession Free Group Gift for January


And again you see the Wing Fetishist in her natural habitat! Like I said, I WILL mix it up but this is a limited time only and I really want to promote this sale to people who might want the look of Wishbox or Caverna but don’t particularly have the money. I’m also demonstrating a¬†subscribo gift¬†from¬†AdoreandAbhore given out by a very kind creator who made the poses but didn’t think they fit with a new set. Aww :). Also, take note of the¬†COLLABOR88 special gift from D!VA. To clarify, you WON’T find the hair at D!VA’s mainstore, you MUST visit the fair (LM I will give you again below.) This is another style of the same hair and a demonstration of the shorter/longer hair option available to you at the click of a button ūüôā

Alice is wearing….

Outfit/wings accessories: The Spring Fairy sale **AngelWing** (all together for 25L)

Hair: D!VA Marie Collabor88 Freebie (0L)

Pose: AdoreandAbhore Subscribo gift (0L)

Skin: My Ugly Dorothy 1L skin 4 (1L

Pumps: Evie’s Closet Freebie/Autumn Fairy


In addition to the main feature, you’ll have noticed that I’ve found, as I always do some bits and bobs that just make the whole thing pop out at you. You’ll have seen the¬†free D!VA¬†hair featured a few times now. This particular hair is Norma and regular visitors will recognise it, as will you recognise the¬†Aisha skin and mesh eyelashes¬†from The Dressing Room Fair (70L) from Al Vulo. The smoky green¬†eyes¬†however are a teeny item that have stolen my heart from¬†poetic colors¬†and are a¬†subscribo gift. Speaking of subscribos, keep your eyes on the animated mushroom from Model Poses.¬†It comes with numerous poses and is perfect for a fairytale scene or even addition to your garden!

Eyes: Pond Poetic Colors Subscribo Gift

Animated toadstool: MODEL poses Subscribo gift

Hair: D!VA Norma Group Gift (free join and Free gift)


Well, that’s about all I have time for at the moment! However, I’d just like to finish on a pretty little outfit from the AngelWings sale and one of my favourites ūüôā This is also a chance for me to demonstrate the quirky little freebie from model poses once more. ūüôā

Alice is wearing…

Outfit: Xylia 25L sale **AngelWing**

The pumps listed earlier are part of a freebie from Evie’s closet, but everything else you see Alice wearing that isn’t listed is an addition from Angel Wings ūüôā I will be updating more regularly this week and am aiming for at least four updates a week so spread the word, bookmark us and keep your eyes peeled for my¬†Noobie Survival guide coming soon and my¬†Fur Mods special¬†(when I find a spare moment lol. I’ve started but this one involves a lot of pictures so bear with me!)


Star Trekking across the universe….

So, I was lying in bed last night, waiting to go asleep and had a song someone was singing to me yesterday (somewhat annoyingly) stuck in my head. If you’ve seen the title and recognise it them you know exactly what I mean. Anyways, I was sitting there thinking random thoughts until I touched upon one….what if Star Trek were a porno?


This is me, myself and I acting out that very er…I’d like to say fantasy? lol. This is sounding more and more like a geeky metaphor for self love (get your minds out of the gutter!) but yes, that is genuinely me in three different guises. I’ve done this for a couple of reasons: 1. it’s funny 2. Because I can 3. To display both all shades of this beautifully made and generously given freebie by¬†+NODe¬†and a tip given to me by my friend Anne-Elizabeth quite some time ago. They’ve been languishing in my inventory and, I’ve been threatening to do something truly geeky so here it is!

The ‘Crew’ are wearing…

Uniforms: NODe+ Modulate uniforms (0L no group join!)

All right. So what helps me when I’m putting these outfits together is imagining a little bit of a story behind each of the ‘characters’ I’m modeling. I am a storyteller and writer in my ‘other’ life before anything else, so I suppose it carries over to second life too . So, boys and girls, brace yourselves. Here is Lieutenant Allura…


Yes, we’ve all seen the Curio skins. We’ve all seen the Truth hair. However, the combination of both the gorgeous dark Bean skin by Curio¬†and the¬†January¬†subscribo hair from¬†Truth¬†is just another example of how striking some of these freebies can actually be. I’d also like to point out the¬†ikon eyes here too. Although these are past group gifts, IKON generously give away sets of these eyes in different colours and styles on¬†the first weekend of every month. The heels you see me wearing are part of an outfit featured in¬†FabFree by¬†Cake and are a free January group gift. So..hair (0L). Skin…(0L) Shoes…(0L) outfit…(oL) eyes…(ol). There really is no excuse to look like crap in SL these days. It’s a matter of knowing¬†how and where¬†these things are. So if you have a friend in serious need of a makeover, slip ’em my number. Allura will sort you out ūüėČ

‘Allura’ is wearing….

Heels: [[>Cake<]] january group gift (0L)

Skin and lipstick: Curio Bean Midnight 2 Frex (0l – Gala and Rita announcements group in notices)

ring: Grasp Lily Ring (50L group joining fee)

Hair: Truth January subscribo gift

Eyes: IKON Eternal eyes mesa (past group gift, no longer free)

Glasses: Axl pro glasses (marketplace 1L)

As you might have noticed, my ‘models’ are named after certain members of Star Trek. The original, none of this new fangled crap (cough…on the set of Voyager…cough). These uniforms reminded me of the good old days of Captain Kirk and his crew: short, slutty and fabulous! Allura is a take on a ‘vulcan’ and I’m going to show you how I adjusted got these cute little elven ears for 5L.

StarTrekkiing4 StarTrekkiing5

To the right, you can see very barely the outline of my ‘vulcan’ ears. These can (and knowing me, probably will) be used as vulcan ears for darker skins. The ears themselves are just about right for the price, but that isn’t to say you can write them off. The sculpts are nice, neat and can be adjusted just behind most ear shapes. They’re mod and tintable. The add button is your friend. If you want earrings to go with them…just hit add and adjust where you like. Simples. The¬†ring¬†you can see above is another fine example of how detailed¬†Grasp’s products are. This is one of many group gifts you can pick up for 50L and, bar Earthstones, in my opinion, one of the best jewelry and accessory retailers out there.

Ears: Chi Seid elf ears (5L marketplace)

Ring: Lily ring group gift Grasp (50L join fee)



This is Lieutenant Fruitloop. In contrast to Allura, Fruitloop isn’t sexy, she isn’t very logical and well, I called her such purely because she looks like a person you don’t want to give a bag of sugar to. She’s wearing a pair of lovely boots from¬†beemake¬†(which, in hindsight, my dippy engineer should have worn XP), stockings from¬†Requiem¬† and freebie hair from¬†Rumina.¬†Also featured is this gorgeous caramel skin from MOJO, their Santa skin, previously featured.

‘Fruitloop’ is wearing…

Skin: MOJO group gift (0L)

Hair: Rumina styles pony tail (0L)

Gloves: Grasp gloves (50L joining fee – Group gift)

Boots: **Bee make** engineer boots gift (0L)

Glasses: [Umeboshi] Castor glasses (10L or luckyboard)

Stockings: Requiem special addition stockings (part of a freebie lingerie set)

Eyes: Dead Apples group gift (0L)


Finally, this is Lieutenant Commander Totty, our engineer. Giggity. You might recognise her as a person masquerading as a kitty cat in my earlier blog posts, but she looked too adorable in this getup that I had to XP It’s also a chance for me to show off one of my favourite dollarbies, this pretty tintable bow from Y&R. I have tinted this to suit my outfit but since the original is quite a neutral colour, you’re free to play around with it as much as you like since it is both mod and very versatile You can also get a better look at ‘Totty’s ‘ tights/pantyhose and pumps in the first pic of the post. And yes, I have flogged Lo*momo until I am blue in the face, but I love them. You should too. If you haven’t popped down to see them, off you pop ^^

‘Totty’ is wearing….

Skin: Jesylilo Autumn 2 (previous hunt/group gift no longer free)

Hair: Lo*momo group gift Canna pink

Eyes:E Al Vulo Aisha TDR (not free Р70L at the dressing room fair with skin/brows/lashes)

Hair ribbon: Y&R Big Bow Hairband (marketplace – 1L)

Tinted tights: Attitudes lingerie (1L marketplace)
