Faun Fun!

Hello again strangers! I have been busy with various other creative projects in RL but that doesn’t mean I’ve forgotten you šŸ˜‰ And I especially have not forgotten my ideal of a Fifty Faun feature! Well, I have some good news and some bad news: The bad news is that freebie/under 50L stuff for fauns is very limited. On this occasion I have had a couple of cheats. I was faced with abandoning the feature and moving on but obviously, that ain’t happening. Therefore, the good news is that, well, obviously I’ve just went and big fat done it anyway! Tada!

FaunFun

Right, a couple of things here: firstly, rather than provide a full fifty faun, I have presented you all with some extras at under fifty lindens as well as this lovely corset from theĀ Maai midnight mania group and some freebie extras to set the whole thing off such as the complimenting panties and suspenders fromĀ ~Sassy!~.Ā Both groups have boundless group gifts, outfits and freebies so it’s well worth a look. I’d also like to draw your attention to myĀ hair which is an exclusive from D!VA for Mimi’s Choice.Ā The hair comes in two different styles, both of which I will show you, but comes in this colour only.Ā Please note that you can also not get this hair in the D!VA mainstore but need a Mimi’s Choice Group tag at the mainstore to nab it.Ā The horns are fromĀ +Half-Deer+Ā and are a 25L gatcha prize as well as the cute faun face for 30L.

All right, as I said, I decided to compromise on the ‘good looking’ faun stuff. You can get cheaper but, as with most things fantasy related (and frikkin’ hard to find at a certain price) they look like er…cack. So, I snapped up these cute faun feet from small time at 200L for three three colours. Yes, it’s a cheat, but coupled with these cute tintable fader socks (10L on the marketplace) y9u can pretty much get three different looks for half the price of most similar items around. Featured here is also theĀ Free Al Vulo Group giftĀ skin,Ā Alyss in Wonderland, which makes a great look for most outfits.Ā I’m also wearing an item from The Wash Cart sale fromĀ 1 hundred. If you haven’t been down to the Wash already, I strongly advise you to: big names, big market, tiny price…all items 10L or below. You might want to set your draw distance quite low before you head out though. Big bargains mean big lag!

…all right, all right. So I might have told a little white lie. I did decide to go for the Fifty Faun anyway and am sharing with you the first incarnation of my second main, Ayanechi. This is indeed she, looking a little more retro than I’m used to but nevertheless, it’d be a crime for me not to share with those of you not in the know as toĀ K&L‘s range of 50L faun and neko avatars. The skin Chi is wearing is aĀ freebie from Tuty’s.Ā Her hair has been featured before and is still available inĀ D!VA.Ā Also, why do my fauns wear wings? That’s kinda simple:why not?

Ahoy there maties! Soooo I decided to do something I haven’t done in a while here on Fifty. Or well…er, at all really. Mermaids! Now, my reasons for doing an unrelated post right on top of Valentine’s day are twofold: one, I got my one and only mushy valentine’s post out of the way simply because…it’s boring. It’s everywhere. And I quite simply can’t be arsed. Nevertheless, I will have a Valentine’s post up this week with a special fifty twist for all you diehards out there. Aaaaand secondly, it is DAYUM cold. Rain, snow, sleet and general crap-ness. I felt like I wanted to warm up. So, why not join me with some sizzling bargains:

Now see, it wasn’t really enough for me to put a mermaid on a beach, looking all seductive and stuff. I decided to put her, where she belongs, near the water but she’s doing it in style. If one is to become living sushi, you do it right! Or at least I do ;D Ariel? Daryl Hannah? Hanging around on rocks, hankering after princes? Well, my friends, who needs a prince when you have little Chico here, myĀ free doggy bagĀ fromĀ TuTsy’s. The bag is colourchange, wearable and more importantly, adorable. You’ll also notice my fine tail fromĀ Evie’s closet.Ā It is one of several gifts you can get absolutely free without a group tag. Just walk in, turn left and there you are. Insta-fun. The gorgeousĀ skinĀ is a Valentine’s special from the inimitably fantasticĀ Jesylilo.Ā Ā And finally, the hair is another cracking addition to the Analog Dog Free ballsĀ down on the beach behind the AD hair island store. There are plenty to pick up and choose from so why not pay them a visit šŸ™‚

Aaaand finally, a few Nightwish fans may have recognised the name of this post as being a classic album of theirs and in fact the one that sparked the idea in the first place šŸ™‚ Keep tuned for my alternative Valentine’s day special on the way this week, and enjoy my favourite track from the album if you’ve just read that and have a big ? above your head šŸ˜›

 

First Guest Blogger: Solique Lacombe!

AN: I have searched high and low, pleaded, begged and bothered this girl to do a guest spot on Fifty for quite some time and I have had my wishes come true! Sexy, sassy and savy, Sol has kindly put her freebie hunting and fashionista skills to bring both Fifty and YOU the best deals out there with this exclusive under 50L avatar put together from freebies and discount items. Please guys, show Soli some love in the comments section below and please do enjoy ^^ Thank You Solique! ~ AliceĀ

I was encouraged to do a guest blog here which I only really started cause I found this lovely green dress, which was a group gift from the Lika Ruby store. Of course how could one do an entry that was only about a dress? People need other stuff to wear with it. So I went on a little mission to find stuff to go with it and I ended up piecing together an entire avatar! I liked the shape that came with the skin, but it’s face looked retarded! However, this shape is mod so I was able toĀ  put my own face on it. The best thing about the dress is that it also includes the earrings and necklace. With almost every outfit I’ve ever put together, it was always the accessories that made it pop. While the entire outfit is free, right down to the skin and hair, the eyes do cost a small amount. The eyes are my everyday eyes, which i bought at Negaposi for $30L Ā each colour. I’m able to have two different coloured eyes because they include prim eyes as well Ā as the regular avatar eye layer.

Queen of hearts!

All right guys, it is February and we are right into the heart of the matter here at fifty: Valentine’s Day! Now, I have had some rather questionable emails concerning my wherabouts these past couple of weeks and I can just hear it now: Alice, you’re LATE! Yes, yes I am and the reason is that I was away last weekend, returned home and was sick as a dog and feeling sorry for myself XD I just want to let you all know that Fifty is flying high and I am definitely here to stay. One of the perks of being Alice Wylde is you guys but the downside is that I AM Fifty at the minute, so if I go, it all goes. Wanna help? WRITE FOR ME! Yes, I’m still plugging that idea. One day I will succeed! Anyways, owing to my absence I have therefore put together a bumper edition for you all, so please, do enjoy!

D’awwww, isn’t that sweet? The er…outfit I’m wearing consists of these adorable redĀ shoesĀ which are a steal atĀ 10LĀ on the marketplace. This adorable littleĀ heart poseĀ is also something I picked up, a dollarbie on the marketplace and I thought would be perfect for any homemade Valentine’s cards you boys and girls were hoping to send out to your loved ones(*waves hi to her guy who pops in every now and again* And Trasc…you haven’t rumbled me this time :P). You might also notice the wee potted plants and wall hangings which are freebies as part of theĀ For the love of… hunt, a furniture based hunt with lots of cuddlies, animations and bits and pieces for a cozy Valentine’s night in front of the fire šŸ™‚ more information on that at the end of the post…

All right, you will notice several things here: one, that frikkin tail is everywhere! Two, my wonderful neon dreads ;D To come to the point about the tai and accessories…I would like to answer a few critics here who, and I’ve had this said directly to my face first hand, have bitched about Freebie/discount blogs owing to their ‘unoriginality’ and ‘all featuring the same stuff’. My answer to this: Sometimes we do feature the same stuff, but SL isn’t about pre-packaged avatars for me. Mix and match, build your wardrobe and er….as far as being unoriginal goes…get bent. Yes, you can be both cheap and unique. For this reason, I’m going to work more fervently on my mod sections so do keep up to date with us! All right, the hair…Lol. Back to business. This is from theĀ Sinister Sinner Goth huntĀ and is the prize fromĀ The Alice Project.Ā The hunt itself ended on Jan 31st but this infinity pack is still available with a group join to the SSG group (sinister sinner goth). Also featured is the newĀ free group gift from Hush skinsĀ and a few bits and pieces I picked up for free atĀ psychotic neko:Ā

Finally, a closer look at several things featured here: One the Hush Group Skin for February (0L with a group join) and the newest addition from Al Vulo’s group gift hut. You might also want to rush on down to IKONĀ to grab these stunning eyes which are available until Midnight tomorrow: remember, IKON’s group gifts last for the first weekend of the month and then they’re gone, so it’s well worth a visit. Also featured areĀ MarieĀ andĀ WonderlandĀ luckboard/chair gifts fromĀ The Alice Project.Ā These hairs require no group joins, just a lot of patience and are only two featured.Ā Carrie’s lingerieĀ provided this wonderful little heart bikini as part of their group gift and Enelya’s creations are ever generous with their lucky chairs and wealth of midnight mania boards with only one example in this little red number. Finally, the poses I have used here are only a tiny selection from the numerous generous freebies fromĀ E.Ink.
