Ocean Born

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:

Oceanborn3

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, my free doggy bag from TuTsy’s. The bag is colourchange, wearable and more importantly, adorable. You’ll also notice my fine tail from Evie’s closet. 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 gorgeous skin is a Valentine’s special from the inimitably fantastic Jesylilo.  And finally, the hair is another cracking addition to the Analog Dog Free balls 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 🙂

All right, all right. Is that more like it? There are a variety of these tails at Taliesins for free 🙂 Upon landing, drop into the water, have a scooch around to the right and you’ll find a variety of nautical freebies such as an AO, a funky animated trident and an abundance of mer tails for both sexes.

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! ~ Alice

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 to  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  each colour. I’m able to have two different coloured eyes because they include prim eyes as well  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 😄 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!

Valentines1

D’awwww, isn’t that sweet? The er…outfit I’m wearing consists of these adorable red shoes which are a steal at 10L on the marketplace. This adorable little heart pose 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 the 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 🙂 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 the Sinister Sinner Goth hunt and is the prize from The Alice Project. 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 new free group gift from Hush skins and a few bits and pieces I picked up for free at psychotic neko:

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 IKON 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 are Marie and Wonderland luckboard/chair gifts from The Alice Project. These hairs require no group joins, just a lot of patience and are only two featured. Carrie’s lingerie 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 from E.Ink.

Under a Blood Red Sky

Okay so yeah, I’ve been playing with Windlight again 😀 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:

random1

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 😉

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 😛  That’s not to say the rest of us can’t profit from these fine creations however, and profit I have…

random

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.

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.

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!

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?

StarTrekkiing

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!)
http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/SLOW/163/21/3005

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…

StarTrekkiing3

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 😉

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.

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.

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 ^^

Sex, drugs and Hello kitty?

Soooo this turned out completely different to what I had in mind. This post was going to be gritty, alternative, rock and roll, sex, drugs…then I found Hello Kitty and that went out the window pretty quickly. I’ll be following up with something with a little more in tune to my original idea but what the hell. It’s a cat guitar. I couldn’t resist.

All right so, to begin with you will notice a few things: one the guitar. Two the boots and finally the various paraphernalia surrounding me. I went on a little marketplace spree and found the amps, radios (which are modified and coloured by myself. They are white by default) and the pose I’m using, all for the low, low price of 10L. Here’s a breakdown of what I’m wearing, holding, surrounded by. I also picked up the kitty pictures from Umeboshi on a lucky board. You might also remember the Lo*momo skybox, featured in yesterday’s post.

Finally, meet the second of my under 50L avatars. The shape is modified by me but is from Panda Punx on the marketplace. You can find your pick there at anything from 1L to 10L complete with skins. The tee shirt is from Moncheri and is raising awareness of bullying. You can also see these lovely deep brown eyes, a group gift from Dead Apples. The hair I’m wearing is also free and comes in numerous colours, as is the skin which is not only very striking, comes in many different tones and brow colours and is the December group gift from Genesis Creations at 0L a pop but gives me my most striking Amy Pond pout 😛 Any Whovians out there know what I mean. Accessories are from Needful things and featured far too many times to mention throughout my blog already.

And finally, if you haven’t already you might want to grab a starter AO from Akeyo or Tutsy on the marketplace if you’re just starting/restarting out in Second life. Happy shopping 🙂

Hello Kitties =^.^=

Mrrooow? You looking at me? :3

AliceKitten

Well, hi! As some of you will have probably guessed, I’m an alt. Alice is the dolly her creator used to test out some freebies which inspired my site. I have two other aliases, one of whom is and has been a neko for five years in second life. Now, being a neko in SL teaches you two things:

1. EVERYONE AND THEIR MOTHER is or has been a neko at some point in their SL.

2. EVERYONE AND THEIR MOTHER ends up looking more or less the same at some point in their SL.

So, it’s touch trying to stand out, be yourself and keep the kawaii or the alley cat in with your neko puuuursona (I know…I just mentally slapped myself.) and much more so if you’re looking for decent freebies. Well, my first stint as a neko over five years ago started with freebies and…they were horrendous. However, I have searched long and hard to put together some cute little starter outfits for my feline friends out there. I have also been searching for some *decent* under 50L latex and have found none better than Powers of Creation. Any fellow kinksters or lovers of the shiny, visit the pay as you like section at the back of the store to pay anything from 1L upwards for your favourite colours 🙂 So, here goes:

You can also get a better look at the eyes from Psychotic neko there which really are quite lovely, as well as the skin from Jesylilo. I keep harping on about it but people, look. The creator has left 80 something prizes out for an extra day. 80+ skins, clothing, eyes, shapes….gtfo and go see her! Also, this segment gives me the chance to mention the fantastic Adoness Snowflake Storewide hunt. Find the snowflakes and you will pay anywhere from 1L to 10L (fancy meshy clothing and hair). Hunt runs until beginning of Feb and you’re looking for a snowflake. Duh 😛 Pick up your leftover pennies and head down there:

Today also marks the LAST DAY OF THE WOMENSTUFF HUNT and hence your last chance to pick up, what can only be described as this glorious skirt and, in the next picture, corset from Etchaflesh. If you haven’t had a poke around for these already, do so. I know a lot of the bigger blogs have covered these already so this is a reminder: GET GOING! And yes, I can be bossy sometimes. Mew? Can I cute it down for you?

And finally, honourable mention goes to this wonderful pale demon figure I randomly created. Because I can. And am random 😀 Lemon tea (part of the fantastically named Two Cats One Cup – furries, just an FYI, if you’re looking for good mods and tails, TCOC are your first stop. Sadly, not free but worth it.) are giving these horns away and a rather suggestive item  *wink wink* so head on down there to grab your copy from their Lucky Board. Ahem…one more time now!
