April 30, 2014: Fantasy Gacha Carnival Previews From Distorted Dreams & 25L Tuesday at [Teri]otrope!

4-30-14aGreetings once again, thrifty shoppers!

There are some really unusual and beautiful designs being released for this upcoming round of the Fantasy Gacha Carnival, and one piece that I was particularly excited to showcase here was the “Fierce” crown from .::Distorted Dreams::.  This piece compliments the matching original mesh top which will also be available at the upcoming FGC or can work with any number of outfits, such as this simple yet lovely dress from [Teri]otrope, which was one of the 25L offerings available during yesterday’s sale!

I tied this look together with the ::Bite & Claw:: Tribal Warpaints (#4 shown here) as well as jewelry sets from On A Lark and Luas.  These warpaints, which I featured previously, will also be available at the upcoming FGC, so be sure to get there on Sunday, May 4th to play your favorite machines and snatch up some great finds!

April 29, 2014: Fantasy Gacha Carnival Sneak Peeks Featuring Luas!

4-28-14Greetings again, thrifty shoppers!

I apologize for the few days downtime with posting; RL just didn’t want to let up long enough for me to get to important things, like bringing you some amazing, upcoming Fantasy Gacha Carnival items!

That’s right, May’s FGC is right around the corner, and I know you’re all as thrilled as I am about it!  There have been some really unique items being showcased on many blogs and Flikr pages, and I’m really excited to show off what creator Ainara of Luas has created especially for this event!  In the coming days I’ll have more items to feature for you, leading up to the event opening on Sunday, May 4th!

There will be two gacha machines available from Luas, featuring armor pieces, a crown, and belt that work well when worn together, or pieced with other items to create a really unique mix-n-match ensemble.  I’m showing the black version here, one of two rare offerings for you to win!  If you enjoy panther or other tribal-inspired role play, then this set is for you!  While I usually don’t wear this style of clothing, I found my inner panther for the images I put together, and have to admit I had a lot of fun putting this set together!  I hope you enjoy what I created, and be sure to get this outfit for yourself when the doors open!

<3, Candi

April 24, 2014: 25L Tuesday With [Teri]otrope!

4-23-14 duoI’ve got twice the lovely ensembles for you today, thrifty shoppers!  I paired up for this post with one of my best friends and favorite bloggers, the lovely Kaci Sandmoon of Gor-Geous Nightmare to bring you both the Free Woman and slave versions of the ensembles that were available at [Teri]otrope during this past Tuesday’s 25L event!

For this slave ensemble I decided to keep things rather simple.  I usually don’t wear anything in shades of orange, but I felt the texturing on this [Teri]otrope camisk was really gorgeous with its rust-colored hues, and it also it matched perfectly with these unique and well-made armor pieces from On A Lark, which I’m showing here in copper.  The EPIC prize from this gacha includes a color-changing HUD for each of the pauldrons, arm, and leg bracers and was recently featured at this past round of The Secret Affair.  Be sure to stop by OAL to try your luck at getting one of these for yourself!

I added this lovely necklace from Sweet Poison to finish off my outfit, which also has a color-changing HUD for different metal textures and complimented this gorgeous color scheme I’d created.  It too was recently featured at this past round of The Secret Affair!

I hope you enjoy what Kaci and I have put together for you.  For more information on what she’s wearing, be sure to check out her post here!

April 23, 2014: 25L Tuesdays With On A Lark & A FGC Preview From Bite & Claw!

4-22-14aHelloooo and happy hump day, thrifty shoppers! 😛

I found lots of gorgeous items at this week’s round of 25LT, and I hope you did also!  I am *completely* in love with this outfit, but in particular the top, which is part of the “Hannah” collection from On A Lark!  This creation comes with a color-changing HUD for the leather straps to really add to the versatility of this outfit, which is something you’ll always find from *OAL* creator Lark!

To bring this look together I added this unique warpaint tattoo from ::Bite & Claw::, which is a new release for the upcoming Fantasy Gacha Carnival in May!  I also added these wonderful arm wraps from Dark Prophet Designs, which were featured at February’s Fantasy Gacha Carnival.  I polished off the ensemble with the “Cira” armlets and circlet, also from *OAL*.  With a bit of tweaking, this circlet made for a nifty collar, which I will be wearing often!

Be sure to check back soon for another installment of The Thrifty Bondmaid, featuring the 25LT ensembles from [Teri]otrope and my favorite blogger, Kaci Sandmoon of Gor-Geous Nightmare!

April 22, 2014: Booty From The Fantasy Collective Featuring On A Lark, Sweet Poison, & May’s Soul!

Greetings thrifty shoppers!

Have you been to The Fantasy Collective? I certainly hope so!  I’ve got lots o’ treasures to share with you from this great event, which clearly features all things piratey!

One of the most unique finds you’ll encounter while shopping at TFC is this peg leg from On A Lark.  It comes in two versions, the more traditional round, and my personal favorite, the curvy!  Both of these styles come with a great color-changing HUD for a variety of wood textures.  I paired this up with the boots from another outfit I just featured, the “Bonny” ensemble from ::B&C::.  I’d nearly forgotten I had these awesome sleeves, part of the “Juliette” creation from Luas, which was released at some point last year.  I’ve mix-n-matched them with a few outfits, but felt they were perfect for this theme!

I added this awesome little eyepatch from Sweet Poison to my ensemble as well, which is available in either a fur or leather texture (I chose the leather).  It too has a color-changing HUD, making it a versatile and essential part of any self-respecting buccaneer’s wardrobe!  Finally, I couldn’t resist buying one of the May’s Soul mowie pirates to finish my look, in pink of course!  I did a little adjusting and sat him on my head so he could keep a lookout for danger, and well, he didn’t seem to mind! 😛

I hope you enjoy the pictures I’ve put together for you, and hope you’ll plunder your own treasure at The Fantasy Collective while it sticks around.  Until next time, may all your finds be thrifty and fabulous!

<3, Candi

April 20, 2014: Previews From The Fantasy Collective Featuring Bite & Claw!

Happy Easter to you, thrifty shoppers!

I hope you’re having a lovely Sunday!  For those of you who are indulging in a little shopping in your second lives today, I wanted to take the time to remind you that The Fantasy Collective opens its doors today!  The theme of this month’s items?  Yarrr, it be pirates, matey!

I was thrilled when I put on this ensemble from ::Bite & Claw::!  It’s a head-to-toe outfit, including the jacket, pants, boots, belt and even this hat, which I adore.  While this outfit isn’t at 100L or less, it includes so many pieces that it’s still an incredible bargain.  Many of these items, the boots and hat in particular, can be worn with a variety of other outfits, making it not only cost-friendly but great for mix-n-matching, which I do a lot!

For the finishing touch I added one of my favorite go-to necklaces, the “Honor Beads” collar from On A Lark and was ready to sail the high seas…or just drink too much rum in the sun.  Which I did.

I hope you all enjoy what I put together, and be sure to visit The Fantasy Collective and pick up your favorite pirate-inspired items!

April 19, 2014: Gettin’ Into the Swing of Genre-New Release From Distorted Dreams!

If you’ve not yet been to Genre, thrifty shoppers, you’ll want to swing by ASAP to have a look at all the great deals and amazing new content by some of your favorite creators.  Also, yay for puns! 😛

One of the creations you’ll find at this event is a darling little sheath dress from .::Distorted Dreams::.  Available in a variety of gorgeous pastel shades, I’m highlighting the “shell” shade for this post.  It’s a wonderful dress that can either be dressed up or dressed down for whatever you and your pixels wish to do!  I decided to pair this simple yet elegant little number with a new pair of sandals and a simple little necklace from On A Lark.

The following shot was taken at Gachatopia, my favorite gacha-focused yard sale.  If you’ve not been there while hunting down your latest gacha addiction that you SIMPLY MUST HAVE, then shame on you!  Teleport over and see what you’re missing; there’s quite a lot to take in!  For more information on Gachatopia, the events held by sim owners Luke and Morbid Templar, and other gacha events across the grid, click here!

I hope you enjoy what I’ve put together for you, thrifty shoppers, and check back soon, as I will have more items to show you from the upcoming round of The Fantasy Collective, which opens tomorrow.  I hope to see you there!
