Free as a Bird

large raw shot here
There is a story here -- kind of a long one. Sami is older than I by about a year or so. She has her ninth rez day coming up this month.  While I spent much of my youth over at Sn@tch combing the walls for hidden free goodness, Sami was of the generation that grew up with Free Dove.

So the story goes that she was out and about looking for free goodness and spotted a sign for Free Dove. I guess nostalgia got the better of her as she journeyed over to see the store of today and she suggested that I go over too and pick up some things and we could post together.

 I don't really remember much about Free Dove from my youth although I am sure I was there.  The look was familiar. There are some very nice gems hidden amongst the eclectic display of boxes. Here are a couple.

My attire is simple and VERY CUTE!!!!  A handkerchief type dress from M&M-Armina. You will want to be fairly brave to wear this dress, but if your desire is to show off your body --- this is the dress for you!   (inworld shop is here).  A quick trip over found lots of great looking clothes as well as a big wall of old group gifts -- including this dress in a blue print. Just thought you "might" want to know that!

There is also a hunt going on in the store. Prices seem to be $10 and they "sound" good - LOL.

Unfortunately you don't get the DARLING ELEPHANTS.

They are however VERY easy to find.

Hair: *Alice Project* Kimberly [S] - Basics SL&O gift

On Sami:

Baby Monkey (inworld store here) sweater, pants, necklace and system heels -- part of a HUGE pack of goodies that come with a three color change hud. These were apparently last years Advent gifts (a shop I used to visit often and one I missed adding to my Advent calendar).

Our location is Ironwood Hills. Mark that down for your October film shoots!   By the time this posts the crowds will hopefully be down a bit. Currently the sim is full and it was hard to take photos. I will be venturing back as Fall approaches.

On me besides the dress:

The Child Within

The Arcade is underway and even if you can't get IN yet you can look forward to some fun, young at heart, releases.

From Baiastice, a big set of Los Pepitos. Some come complete, others with optional accoutrements.

This is EVE (rare and yes there is an Adam) with diapers, long hair and flip flops. Bottle and pacifier come together and each of the other sets have various colors. Los Pepitos come with basic AOs which work well but I found that many poses and animations work just fine with her.

I smiled alot as tiny little Eve moved things around my building pad with aploom :D.

A perfect match for Eve, Adam, any of the other kids OR adults that are young at heart --- the {what next} wearable airplane. Super cute with realistic animations, at only 9 land impact it can even be a rezzable prop.

There are MANY styles to collect. This is Flower Power (rare). Designed for bigger folks, it resizes perfectly.    Note that the new hover height adjustment is needed to get the plane back on ground level if you resize it down greatly.  (Thank you Linden Lab and Firestorm for putting that back in easy to get to form; I SO missed it!)

MOH6 Report

Wonder, in need of some new duds (most guys don't seem to like to shop as much as gals) went on the newly started Men Only Hunt. While there were still some MIA folks the word is that the hunt is a good one with most hints helpful. He missed finding a few of the beer glasses and noted that a couple had apparently been moved from their original location (the one with the hint). So watch for that.

He also said there were quite a few gals on the hunt and that some prizes were unisex and SOME had gifts sized for both gals and guys.  Here are some of his favorites. Note that most tattoos and some other products come with TMP appliers and some with a variety of appliers. [Psst - the owl tattoo comes with appliers for gals including Maitreya and there is a very nice pink vest at ::K:: Main Store. So I need to get out an do a little hunting too. ]
