Free*Style Fresh Faces - Blogger Search




Free*Style needs some Fresh Faces!!!

Have you ever felt like you just wanted to reach out to the pixilated world, share your favorite free finds, show SL the style that is all your own?

Well do we have an opportunity for you!

Free*Style is looking for some new faces to become members of our blogging team.

What we are looking for:

General Bloggers


- all Genders welcome, as well as different types of avatars(human or otherwise)
- avatars who simply blog in their own style
- no experience required/will train for blog and photo post processing
- can dedicate time to blogging at least once or twice a week
- can curate a look with 3 or more free/gift/group gift/subscriber gift/hunt gift/gacha Items
- can create ”SAFE for Work” looks (ie: no nipples, no artistic nudes, you get the idea)
- can insert links to all free items, and have them credited with price/group/hunt/event/gacha

Home and Garden Bloggers

We would love to add some Home and Garden Bloggers to the team. We have never had dedicated bloggers to this category, and I think it would create an interesting mix of talent. If you enjoy collecting free items to furnish your sl environments, even when they are mixed in with regular priced items, we would love to have you join us.

Feature Bloggers

Are you interested in just one thing? Do you collect all the free shoes, hair or skins. I could keep going with lists, but the point is, if you would like to become a Feature Blogger, and just blog about those things you focus on, whatever that one item might be, we would be interested in hosting you here on the site.

We are not looking for experienced bloggers, though they are welcome if they can keep post quota. We felt it was time to to get some new faces out there, and are willing to work with people who are new to blogging. There will be training in the areas you need, so you can comfortably blog without it being stressful.

If this sounds like something you might be interested in, please proceed below the cut, for full instructions on how to apply.

Thanks,

The Free*Style Blogging Team

L$100 Catwa Static Head


 So I got a pleasant surprise today, when one of my fellow Free*Style Bloggers, Synful Ghost, let me know about what was going down with Catwa. In recent months, they had released news that they were making basic heads, heads that had less of the fluff(expression options and such). This was exciting, as some of us don't need a bagillion expressions, and would be content with a head with less options. So an Animated Catwa Head will cost you just over 4k, while the basic is L$910. The Basic Heads allow you to customize what sort of features you do want with your head, in the way of addons. The new Static Heads differ from the Basic Heads, because they do not have animation capabilities, thus no addon features. But who is going to complain, when it is only L$100 for a Static head?

I hope that the price point isn't a trial, or a one off thing. I think this is a good option for content creators, for testing their appliers. While Catwa does have a unique system, that allows you to check textures from your desktop, on their tester heads, the use of these Static Heads far surpasses that, as they can also be used in ads. I really hope they end up taking this program and using it for their male mesh head line.

The first Static Head up for grabs is Nicki.


 To the Left is the Static Nicki Head with one of the default skin options you will find in the head hud. I also am wearing a liner that comes preloaded into the hud. It's a very mature look, this head, I feel. 

To the Right is the same head, but I change the default skin, and used an omega applier skin I have from Kooqla. I threw on some blush from the head hud, and the lipstick and eyeshadow are from the Kooqla Dkin Hud.

Hairbases also come in the Head Hud, in Natural Colours.

Humpday Hunting - Tengoku No Rakuen: Spring Hunt 2016


 Click to Enlarge

There is a little hunt going on right now, at the Tengoku No Rakuen monthly yardsale. If you have never been to the Tengoku No Rakuen monthly yardsale, it is a bunch of designers that place out items at a discount, for a short period of time. They up and decided to have a hunt, so from now, until June 15th, you can find all the little goodies offered. There is 17 items(I think, that is all I found) hidden in little flowers. The hunt items are L$2 each, and most of the items are super cute. You can preview some of them by looking at the doorways of the shops.

Drama


Hey there, I'm Helli.

Have you ever wondered what happens when you log off for the day? Did you ever think that just maybe, your avatar goes out, and has all the fun without you behind the wheel. Did you ever have a couch move from one side of the room, to the other, and just chalked it up to SL being weird? 

Well, these things aren't really caused by your avatar per say, but your uber ebil alter self. I mean, you are your avatar, so why would you do it to yourself?

That is what I am, an uber ebil alter avatar. I will be doing all the thangs on this blog now, you just wait and see.

Flowers and Friendship


I here, at Dandelion Daydreams Factory, taking pics again. I don't know what it is about this place, but I always end up a fairy, haha. I think this is the 3rd shoot I have done here with wings. Not that there is anything wrong with that. I was just amused.

I got my little friend here at Fair Play. They have a team gacha going, with each designer offering up a prize. They are all commons, no rares. Only L$25 per play too!

The Unipig pet is pose animated, so you automatically hold him when you equip it.

While at the event, browse the booths, each designer has an item up for grabs, which donate towards charity.

Epicene


Epicene is a relatively new event, that geared towards High Fashion/Couture/Runway Styles, which also caters to both Males and Females. Every designer has exclusive items, and you can sometimes find deals and gachas here as well.

The event has not been picked up on Seraphim yet, so we are going to help them get a bit of a following, and cover it on Free*Style.

Tropical Fiesta


Soul has a wonderful set of 4 eyes currently at We Love Roleplay, that you can pick up for free. The great part about this pack is that applier huds are included(along with the mesh and system eyes), so if you enjoy wearing Genesis Labs heads, there is a hud for their eyes, as well as an Omega Hud for other heads/eyes. A full line of these eyes is currently at We Love Roleplay as well, so if you enjoy these, snap some others up while you can at the discounted price.

Fair Play has an unique concept going on at their event. Last month was the first time they tried it out, and they brought it back for this month. Each designer has made a special gacha item, and they all have teamed up to create one super Team Gacha. You can tour the booths to see what each designer has in for their team gacha item, they all have posters out. To play, just click on any of the gems littered around the event. It is L$25 per play.
