Snow in August never looked so good!

Before you yell at me, yes…that is snow in my pictures! I know, in most of our parts of the world, Summer isn’t even over yet, let alone any thoughts of snow. I’m sorry, I can’t help where my outfits inspire me to go for pictures, and you have to admit, my look in this post goes quite well with the white of the snow :P

So, I won’t go into much with my items on this post, as there is a deadline..the hunt for these gifts ends tonight!! Both the dress and skin are from the Fairy Tale Hunt, and you better move fast if you want them. I’ll remind you, the gifts are L$1 each, and for the hints and previews of other gifts, go HERE.

This gorgeous turquoise gown is the huint gift from OMG! Inc. The Grace Me Midnight Gown (love the name!!!) comes in 2 lengths. For all you non-mesh lovers, this is a system layer and rpim skirt gown..yayy! IDK if I like it better long or short, I’ll let you all decide, both looks are beutiful. I may be biased though, as this is one of my favourite colours.

The lovely pale skin I am wearing is the Thindwen skin from Deluxe Body Factory. I love the pale blue brows <3 In the gift, you get the skin, a brow shaper and an eyelash hider alpha (I did not use either of those). I did have to whip out the alternative skin hud for my SLink hands, feel free to IM me in world if you would like the numbers I decided on.

OK lovelies, I hope you have enough time to run and get these gifts. Along with many others on the hunt, sorry I don’t have enough time to show anymore prizes. I will be back with something else that is just as wonderful, so until next time, TTFN!

Tuesdays with The Warrior Queen

Warrior Queen 1

Considering the time of day, I am going to make this post short and sweet in hopes of giving all the Fab Free readers as much time as I can to pick up these fantastic items. Today is Tuesday, and one thing I enjoy about Tuesdays is $25 Linden Tuesdays! As I generally do, I went through and checked out each of the participating shops, and really found some exciting fantasy and gorean themed items. I’m calling this look “The Warrior Queen”. The horns and headdres are from Sublime Shroud Kreations, and there are several colors to choose from, I think the details are stunning on this piece! The circlet is from Keystone. It includes various colors, as well as a silver version for lots of options, making this a really gorgeous versatile piece. The face-paint is a gacha item at Bite & Claw, there are several options, but I genuinely like this one the most. I like the sort of feral feel it gives to the overall look. Next I picked up this full outfit from Luas, it too is available in multiple color options. Wanting to give this Warrior Queen a little regal flair to her attire, I added the corset from Roawenwood, which also includes a color change HUD. I think it really completes the look and makes for a gorgeous fantasy inspired ensemble. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Tortuga Princess

Tortuga Princess 2

I have to say I am very much enjoying this round of The Fantasy Gacha Carnival. I’m spending way too many lindens, but enjoying it just the same! One of the things I really like is the fact that many of the vendors such as Aisling have set their gachas at just $50 lindens per play! Now you know what I’ve spent my lindens on, this incredibly detailed “Tortuga Princess” set from Aisling. Each piece is color-changeable, including commons, and has re-size scripts. I really do feel like a princess from some fabled island during a time of pirates and buried treasure! To go with my new highly detailed and colorful accessories, I picked up a pretty little set from Orsini Red. The top and matching bottom is fully mesh and they come in several standard sizes. The outfit also comes with gold bangles, which are not shown in my photos along with matching bow accents. The set from Orsini Red is a current Subscribo gift! I hope you enjoy my Tortuga Princess look as much as I enjoyed sharing it with you. Also, as a sweet little bonus, Aisling has set out a gift that includes 3 static poses, also at The Fantasy Gacha Carnival!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Junbug – ing On A Fifty Linden Friday

Snapshot_008Oh!  How I love Friday!!  Friday means Fifty Linden Friday stops for me, first thing in the morning.  Mostly I run from shop to shop down the list while I am multi-tasking putting on my face in the morning getting ready for work or skipping  breakfast or something lol.  FLF is worth one side of my face being un-mascaraed or those 10 AM hungry tummy growls.

This morning I picked up the FLF items at Glam Affair and Junbug and boy am I glad I did!  Junbug has two of their Ophelia Dresses out in Floral and Polka, priced at 50L each.  Above I am wearing Floral, and below the Polka.
Snapshot_001For this week’s Fifty Linden Friday offer, Glam Affair has out their Cocktail Girls Duo including the Kallista and Oakley Skins in the Asia skintone.  You get both skins for one price of 50L and there are several eyebrow options included.  What a deal!  Don’t forget the FLF items are only available for one day only!!

The Janice Jewelry Set is a free group gift at Virtual Impressions and looks lovely both with formal and less formal attire.  This set comes with the necklace and matching earrings (which are a little hard to see in my pictures – sorry!).  This group is free to join, and while you are there make sure you grab the freebie box by the stairs too!

A Pirate’s Life For Me!

Queen Anne's Revenge

The first thing every pirate needs is a ship! This beautiful vessel is titled “Queen Anne’s Revenge” and not only is it completely FREE on the Marketplace, it’s actually functional. It can be sailed, and has a hud to fire the 52 cannons on board! The second thing a pirate needs, is treasure. You know, gotta have shiny things to show off and doubloons to hire other pirates to go and get more shiny things!! I’m pretty sure that is how things work. Luckily, there are a few pirate themed events going on right now. One of which is the Skull n Bones Hunt. I picked up this awesome treasure chest full of gold and trinkets, along with it’s very own guardian for just $1 linden at Mirage. The treasure chest has several male and female sit poses, and the macaw is color-changeable. Once I had my ship, and I had some treasure, I felt like I needed a really awesome outfit. ‘Cause let’s be honest, in any job, it is important to “look” the part. With that in mind, I waded through the Fantasy Gacha Carnival and raided the Alchemy gacha for some incredibly well made, highly detailed pirate gear. It was then that I got a sweet little notice from MOCK Cosmetics with a group gift that matched my pirate ensemble perfectly! In the MOCK Cosmetics group notices you will find a set of “absinthe” shaded lipsticks. In love with my new pirate life, I had to share it with you! Yo ho Yo ho, A Pirate’s Life for Me!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Drink up me ‘earties, yo ho.
We’re devils and black sheep, we’re really bad eggs.
Drink up me ‘earties, yo ho.

We’re beggars and blighters and ne’er do-well cads,
Drink up me ‘earties, yo ho.
Aye, but we’re loved by our mommies and dads,
Drink up me ‘earties, yo ho.
Yo ho, yo ho, a pirate’s life for me

An Affordable Fantasea

Snapshot_001Good evening to all of you Fabulous Readers!  Looking for  something to spice up your Second Life?  Try some fins!  From time to time I put on a set of fins and make my mer way under the sea to visit Second Life from a different perspective.  Today I am plundering the Blake Diego Sea in my Pirate Mermaid Costume which I put together with some inexpensive The Fantasy Gacha finds and some FREE marketplace finds too.

Pure Poison is participating in The Fantasy Gacha and in this Pirate themed round they are offering the Pirate Mermaid Skeleton Bras in several colours and the Fitted Mesh Mermaid Tail (comes with a swimming AO, and colour change hud to match the different bra colours) at 50L per play.  Don’t worry, the bras are fully adjustable if you are erm.. bigger or smaller. :)  My Commander Pirate Hat is also a Pure Poison Fantasy Gacha find (50L per play).

I found the Monkey Island Insult Cutlass Sword and the Anchor Necklace in the AleyMart marketplace store, both for free! The sword actually works  – too fun.  They have a wide selection of free pirate goodies in that shop – so take a peek if you are into finding some good free pirate loot.
Snapshot_003The Even-Tide Mer Scales can be found on marketplace for 29L per colour or in full fatpack rainbows too.  They just add a little fantasy to your every day skin.  I am wearing a couple more tattoo layers which are also free.  The Mock Cosmetics Party All Night / Indifference Desert Sand Eyeshadow can be found inworld at Shop FreeStyle, and the Left Eye Scar Tattoo can be found on marketplace as a free gift by Le Baguette.

Last but not least… TSUNAMI is the maker of these free Mouth Bubbles!!
Pure Poison @ The Fantasy Gacha

I’m off to find some booty!  Enjoy your evenings :)

Priestess for a day….

I love the Egyptian culture, especially their history. If any of you have ever perved my profile in SL, you will even see that in RL, I have a tattoo of my own Egyptian cartouche, which happens to be of my name.  That tattoo also has a cat in it, another of my loves. So I was super excited to show you all this post today, as it contains both of these :)

Sekhmet1

The Tales of Fantasy event just opened up this weekend, and I decided to head over and take a look. The moment I saw the Sekhmet gacha from Sweet Lies Designs, I knew I had to play it. At L$50 a play, you get the chance of winning either the rare texture change mask, or one of 4 collar and sceptre sets.  I have pretty good luck with gachas, and won the mask on my first try, and as I liked all of collar and sceptre sets, I was content enough to just play one more time, and ended up with set #3. As quickly as possible, I put my look together, feeling like a priestess of Sekhmet, if not Sekhmet herself, and headed over to the Ancient Egypt/Amarna sim, and spent the day pretending that it was 2014BC instead of 2014AD.

Sekhmet2
Sekhmet Mask, Collar & Scepter - Sweet Lies Original jpg

I have included a picture of the gacha board so that you can see the differences between the different collar sets. Now, I did notice that the collar I got, while it says it is the #3, has blue and white stones, instead of the red and white like the picture, so I have sent a notecard to Hadarah Steamer, the owner and designer of Sweet Lies, to let her know of the difference. Either way, I think I am going to be walking around the grid as a priestess of Sekhmet for as long as possible…well, at least until I start putting together my next look for all you lovely readers :)

Edit : I received a reply from Hadarah, and she has fixed the items in the gacha. So if any of you fab readers tried the gacha and got the same set I did with the miscoloured stones, do not hesitate to send her a notecard about it. I love when a designer reponds so quickly to a sent notecard or IM. Thank you so much Hadarah!

So, until then…TTFN!

Be the best Bone Collector you can be, with flowers!

Hello my FabFreebers! So how has your weekend been? Mine, as usually, was pretty uneventuful..although, some would call it ‘Calle being lazy’ :P I like these kinds of days, because it means that I get a chance to do a little more exploring around SL than I normally get to do. One of the places on my list I’ve been wanting to take a look at, is the Isle of Dee, especially once I saw the notices about the Bone Collector Quest.  I’ll tell you a little about the quest, and then, of course, tell you about my outfit :)

BoneCollector1

He was to collect the bones and bring them to the God
so he may breathe life back into them.
But scared, the Bone Collector ran…
The bones and ingredients are scattered all over the Isle.

Are you brave enough to help?

When you first land at the Isle of Dee, to your left is the board where you will get your HUD and a notecard about the quest. Read the notecard, attach the HUD, and your adventure starts! The hunt for the objects will take you all over the Isle, so it really gives you a chance to see this lovely build. I will warn you, while the objects are pretty well in plain sight, the tricky part is deciphering the riddles to find out where each object is. Once you have collected all the items, and found where the Greenman dwells, there is a second riddle where you have to speak the magic word to receive your gifts. This was a fun little quest and probably took me about 2 hours from start to finish, with quite a bit of extra exploring. At the end of it,  you get a little reward of a super fun hat with a replica of the skeleton you were running around collecting pieces of, as well as a shoulder pet of said skeleton, and a home decor wall piece that will give you a yes, no or maybe answer to a question you ask it, again, with the cute little skeleton on it and the Greenman himself.

BoneCollector3

Now, what am I wearing? Well, the theme of the Isle of Dee is supposed to be around 1400’s, medieval England, so I wanted to look the part. While it is not mandatory, it is encouraged. There is a board at the landing site that will send you to a little area with freebies, including a full female and male av, but I just wanted to find myself a nice dress, so to the Marketplace I went. I ended up finding a great freebie, Ulla by Madison’s Creations. I was even able to tint all layers to make the dress more my own, and as you can see, I went with a nice dark green colour, a nod to the Greenman. It has all system layers, a prim skirt, and prim arm pieces, which I was not wearing. It is a nice simple dress that will work for most any kind of period roleplay.

BoneCollector2

Although I promised there would not be a time cruncher again, if you like the poses I am using, which includes the flower in my hand, it is a pack of 5 poses, each with a flower, from Vanity Poses, as a limited time L$1 gift. They recently moved their store and have redecorated, so they thought they would give out a present. Take a look across from them at Bounce This Poses, they have a freebie gift put out for you as well.

OK, Sunday is drawing to a close for me, and I still have things to do to get ready for that pesky thing called RL work…so, for now, I bid you adieu, until next time.

Gorean Feathers

White Gorean

 

Recently it was pointed out to me that in my last few posts I’ve been wearing very little clothing. After a second of thought, I laughingly agreed. It seems “less is more” has been my accidental theme for the week. So today, I decided to continue with the tradition, and show off a little Gorean style gear I picked up at the current round of The Fantasy Room.

Seriously, I love fantasy fashion in Second Life. I love fashion of all kinds, don’t get me wrong, but there is a special place in my wild little heart that loves fantasy themed or inspired looks. For those like me, The Fantasy Room is an amazing event where you can pick up incredible items at a discounted price for the duration of the event. If I had unlimited funds, I’d grab up everything there!

Really enjoying the jewel tones of the feathers in my Fantasy Room haul, I was uber excited to get a notice about the latest group gift from The Sugar Garden. Right now VIP members can pick up a very pretty set of eyes from the VIP Penthouse. The eyes almost have a water-color look to them, which I think is quite striking. Don’t forget that a group tag is required to enter the room!

Before I give you the break down, I want to tell you about this outfit I picked up from Sweet Lies Original at The Fantasy Room. This fun and feathery ensemble includes so many pieces. For just $50 lindens you get scripted and non-scripted anklets, bracelets, the feathered skirt, ear-ornaments (not pictured), hair-ornaments (not pictured), the bra top and matching thong, not to mention appliers for Lolas Tango and Phat Azz. That is awesome! In addition to my outfit from Sweet Lies, I couldn’t resist the Nativa set from Luas, also at The Fantasy Room. This set is just $50 lindens as well, and it includes a beautiful ear-cuff and face-chain set. To complete the look, and because I couldn’t resist the gacha, I tried my luck and got these cute purple flat sandal boots by Una. All in all, I really like this look a lot. I hope you do too!

Here are the details, Enjoy!
