The Three Fates

Fate

I think it’s important to start out this post by saying how much I genuinely enjoy the fantasy aspects of Second Life. This is the one place in the world where you can genuinely be anything at all. Second Life is also the only place where you can change your complete appearance on a whim, and I find that infinitely fascinating. With this in mind, events like the Tales of Fantasy event tend to attract me like a magnet! I cannot wait to show you some of the incredible finds I picked up from this gacha style fair. Additionally, PixyStix has a uniquely beautiful skin (pictured below) out as a free group gift that lent its self just perfectly to my fantasy adventure. Not only is the skin beautifully done, it comes with just about every applier out there! I ended up with three variations of the same look using items from Tales of Fantasy, and I’ve dubbed the collective “The Three Fates”. I hope you love them as much as I do.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

The 3 Fates 2

Because there are several items I want to tell you about, I want to start with these highly detailed accessories. The Medusa Headdresses from May’s Soul each come with color change HUDS to allow you to customize the jewels and metal accents. These headdresses come in a variety of colors. Additionally the Rare Medusa Shield also from May’s Soul comes with the same color change options and can be adjusted to match the coloring of any Medusa Headdress. The incredibly detailed gold bracers and hand jewelry are from Aisling and can be obtained in silver and black. The equally detailed black bracelets (shown in the third picture) and armlets are from The Forge and also can be obtained in gold and silver. Please remember these are Gacha items so there is no guarantee which colors you’ll get, and that’s half the fun, right?! Last but not least, I absolutely love these henna style hand tattoos from Sweet Poison. I think they are lovely and versatile enough to be worn even with non-fantasy outfits.

Calle’s FabFree Photo Submission – June “Kraken”

Here my first attempt for the monthly photo challenge. I was still so caught up on learning everything after joining the FabFree team last month, that I totally missed doing a pic for the May Flowers theme *hangs head*. That’s ok though, because this months theme, Under the Sea, was so much fun to dress up for, that I’ve forgiven myself. So, onto my picture, or should I say pictures. I could not settle on one, so maybe you fabulous readers could help decide.

MerKrakenCalle2

Like Pru mentioned in her post HERE, there are so many choices for this Under The Sea theme, that I had a hard time choosing. I too decided to go with something a little different, and settled on the Taliesins Tails Little Kraken DeepSea Blue from the Marketplace . I love blue, in all it’s shades, so I was drawn to this beautiful creature like crazy, and for only L$50, it was a steal as well! I was lucky, and had the perfect blue skin in my inventory already, as well as the kinda creepy, kinda hypnotic blue eyes.  My luck continued when I visited the Little Bones shop and played the gacha for the Moon Child hair, and got the black and white pack on my first try! It has this gorgeous midnight blue tone in the hud, seriously, it was meant to be :) I love this look so much, that I have been wearing it for 2 days straight, even meeting a friend at a club where hard rock music was being played. Kraken are surprisingly good dancers!

Well, until next time, I may, or may not still have tentacles…LOL. TTFN *waves, and waves, and waves, and….*

8-bits of Mesh goodness!

I have so many cool things for you in this post, that I am just going to get right into it!

CashmereLG2

The other night, I was idly reading some group chatter, can’t remember for which group, and someone mentioned a store I had never heard of, *CASHMERE&KEANE*. They said it was closing out, and everything was on sale, with stuff for both men and women. While I hate hearing of stores closing, it does usually mean a great bargain for shoppers, and I was not disappointed! Everything in store is L$25, and if you love a retro vibe (especially the ’80′s), you need to head there before they close for good.  I picked up a few things, one of my favourites being this mesh, 1 piece, Zapo Jacket/Shirt combo in Orange. There are many colours available, but I just loved this colour, and I didn’t have an orange jacket already, so of course I had to get it! I also picked up these gorgeous SLink mid shoes, the Cassidy Heel, as a fatpack for L$25. Seriously, there are loads of colours, and that tassel is just too darn cute! Lastly, I picked up the Pyramid Watch(platinum), also for L$25. You actually get 2 watches, you get a plain version, and a rainbow version, which I am wearing. There are so many other great quality items, you really should hurry down there, even if you aren’t as thrilled with my choices, I would hate for you to miss out on this sale.

CashmereLG4

While I was putting my outfit together, digging on the retro vibe, I realized that the leggings in the mesh [LG] Boutique-Call Me Maybe Outfit would totally work for my look. The outfit these leggings are from, are another one of the SLF&O’s free gifts that are available at LivGlam. I love getting full outfits from a store, but I love even more when I can wear those pieces with something else. The studs down the sides of my legs really have that matching retro vibe.

With this definite ’80′s vibe I had going on, I couldn’t believe my luck when I found the sim my main picture was taken on. If you are an 8-bit game fan, you have to go visit. They even have a fun little tutorial that awards you with a prize when you finish it! I had to show it all to you. Yes, that red troopa is me, 8-bit style! There are several different ‘worlds’ to explore here, so take your time and investigate everything! You never know what secret passage ways you will find.

Pru’s June Fab Free Photo Challenge Submission “Selkie”

FabFree Photo Challenge Submission -- June

I have to start this post off by telling you how hard it was to pick a single “look” to go with for this challenge. There are so many gorgeous avatar accessories and costumes for an “Under the Sea” theme, I just might make more than one entry!  That said, I ended up picking something that I felt was a bit different, and slightly based on one of my personal favorite bits of seafaring folklore. The legend of the Selkies is a largely Irish/Scottish fairy-tale but has roots in several cultures. The basis of this myth says that Selkies are seals that can shed their seal skin and shift into a human (both male and female) and often take human lover and even have families. However, the stories are usually tragic love stories because the Selkie will always long for the sea. Once in their human form, a Selkie will often stare longingly at the ocean and should he or she ever find their seal skin, may return to their seal form and their ocean home, abandoning their human mate.

Here are the details about what Pru is wearing, Enjoy!

All that shimmers is gold…

Hiya Fabbies!

So, one of our very own fabulous bloggers, Satu Winterwolf, has a super inexpensive and beautiful item in her shop!

Snapshot_492

The $L10 version of the Patience gown from Heaven & Earth comes in a beautiful red and gold print and looks like it would be perfect for a night out, or even for RP! I’ve given it a bit of an RP look with a belt and jewelry set from Luas, and a head piece from Frogstar. I love the combo of the red and gold in the fabric, and the pattern is just gorgeous! If you get a chance to do a little shopping, the hair I have on is FREE right now for Milk Hair group members, and my skin is just $L75 from Lumae! The hair I have on was also shown by Flora [HERE] a few days ago!

Maleficent eat your heart out!

Hello again. Did you miss me? Well, do I have some stunning items to show you this time, and best of all, you can get them in one place, the FabFree Headquarters. It  is such a great place to go when you are wanting to find some fabulous goodies, and I thought I would show off 2 current free gifts you can find there.

3GDLUM3

The first is the gorgeous Maleficent-esqe mesh dress from ~:.:Three Graces Designs:.:~, called Once Bitten. It has a few different skirt options, as well as it comes with matching knee-high boots. The makeup I am wearing is included, as well as a cross necklace that I am not wearing. Seriously, I just love this dress, especially the sexy slit up the front of the skirt.

3GDLUM4

As I sometimes enjoy choosing not so obviously matching accessories with the outfits I am wearing, the second free gift I have to show, worked out surprisingly well. It is the Lawan White DarkOpal Necklace and Earrings set, generously donated by Luminesse. The necklace especially, really holds its own against the Once Bitten gown, managing to compliment it while also being able to stand out all on its own. It would, as well, make a great statement piece when worn with a classic little black dress.

3GDLUM5

So what are you waiting for? Get your little booties down to the FabFree Headquarters, and pick up these, plus many other generously donated gifts, from our FabFree designers!

 

Side note : Is anyone else out there as excited as I am for Maleficent? Sleeping Beauty was always my favourite fairy tale, and I was always secretly rooting for Maleficent! LOL.
