Tekila did a nice post earlier on American Bazaar’s 3rd anniversary sim hunt, but since I’m a fan of AB I thought I’d post some more items from that hunt with Astrid enjoying the waning days of SL’s summer. You can find Delirium Style‘s texture change top and AB’s skirt gift from that event along with some accessories and Saal Body‘s excellent pose gift.

Note two of the tops below are from Slave Dressing Room, one from the Around the Grid Hunt and the other found in the SL Frees Group notices for another day or two (secondlife:///app/group/601a412e-f210-e20c-2f01-e186b0ea4f42/about). Slave also has a promotion this weekend with a free 300l giftcard for SL Frees members that can be used to buy anything in the store via special vendors. There are many other gifts now available to SL Frees members, so that is one group to join and remain a member.

Astrid is wearing a new release shape from Baholi paired with Aeva‘s Lumi skin that is found at the Wash Sale for just 10l and hair from Diva available at the Arcade gacha.

Kusshon‘s It’s a Man’s World Screen, available at Mens Dept through today (after in store), makes a nice vintage decor item and was fun to use as a backdrop for some retro style photos. My friend Sidney Bluestar of Sup Poses got inspired and made some pin-up type poses to go with the screen, now available for sale in her store with a prop of her design.

Lots of events ending today or this weekend (Tekila pointed out some below) such as Mens Dept, The Arcade, Skin Fair, Whore Couture and various hunts. For the women, note the excellent shape from PixyStix, which is a hunt gift available through today.  Also go visit new hair store Due, where you will find a fatpack of the mesh “Lily” hair completely free.

Monochrome Hunts is back with their latest color-themed hunt, the Lavender Hill Hunt, and like usual there is a nice mix of fashion & decor items to be had. I’m tardy showing the gifts – the hunt officially ends on Mar 10 – but you still have time to get the things you want (note gifts cost 5l). Check the hunt blog for previews of most of the items.

Some of my favorite furniture gifts include [Circa’s] coffee table and pouf set. The coffee table comes in two versions and contains a fascinating miniature garden with butterflies. Breno‘s bunny chair will also make you smile and is perfect for the season. On the fashion side, Epicosity‘s Mesh suit is a must for men and Immerse has a lovely purple Mesh dress that pairs perfectly with the necklace gift from Sigma Jewels.

My female model here features a great combination of a Shape It Up! shape found at the Free*Style store for just 10l and a gift skin from Deesse’s. The male is the same Kirk skin from Essences I blogged last timeit’s so nice I haven’t wanted to take it off- here combined with Step Inside‘s shape from the SYSP anniversary hunt. Note that the SYSP anniversary hunt has lots of good gifts for women (see the last pic for one of the outfits). Stop by the Structure Your Skin project to get the store list and hint “book” for the hunt.

I’m also showing two outfits from 22769 to round out the post: The male shirt can be found at Mens Dept, where the March collection launched earlier this week and the female outfit is on sale at Gallery Gift Shop for just a few more days. Have a nice weekend everyone!

Tomorrow is the end of the Femboy hunt and I couldn’t let the occasion go by without concocting a little something delicious. Aeva has a great skin/shape combo in the hunt (includes all tones), perfect for showing your more feminine side, although I suspect the skin would work well with other shapes. I’m wearing the A:S:S: gift from the hunt, which would probably, ahem, look equally good on women and the hair is a “survey” gift from Chichikee! (includes multiple tones and female hair as well). To get the hair gift, all you have to do is answer a few questions from the survey machine located in-store. It takes a minute and is well worth it. Update: Chichikee! owner Chiana Meredith had actually just removed the survey from her store, but will put it back out only through the weekend  – so show her some love guys (Chichikee! also has MMs and freebies located in the basement discount section).

Four Walls and a host of other hunts also end tomorrow. If you haven’t gotten Sway’s gift yet, take a break from shopping and treat yourself to a cupcake.

I’ve wanted to feature Scarlet Creative’s Noelle Chalet for a while now. This lovely small house has an interesting mix of raw wood, exposed beams and glass with a modern twist and is available at a great price (50l unfurnished, 199l furnished). Beautifully furnished, the build was intended as a rustic mountain getaway and looks great surrounded by snow, but some of the design elements made me think it could also work well as a small hunting lodge, perhaps on the plains of Africa. I’ll show more of the build in a later post – if you are interested in seeing a demo though, follow the beacon from the landing point to the teleporter that takes you to Scarlet Creative’s discount area.

Some of the female clothes here are free gifts from the opening of the Zenshi Shopping district. Many of the stores there had gifts out, but they may not be available for much longer (in fact, the Faster Pussycat dress gift shown below seems to have been removed, but a different version was available for free at the time of publication). Also like every month there are some great items at Mens Dept – I particularly like gO‘s Morten pants and the unisex sweater from Sleepy Eddy – so don’t miss it (ends February 1).

Thanks as well to Ruby Vandyke of Rodeo Horse & Farm Animals for providing me with some mod versions of her rideables.
