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.

…and not a drop of blood on me anywhere!

Have any of you Fabulous readers ever looked at the Destinations Guide on the SL website? It has soo many different places listed for you to go and explore, and I am always on the lookout for a new to me sim for pictures. This time, I ended up at The Cornfield, and wow, I was not prepared for it at all, but more about that at the end of my post. What I am really here for, is to tell you about some of the pieces of my outfit I put together for my monster bashing escapade. Yes, I said monster bashing :P

TheCornfield1

The other night, one of our own FabFree designers, [free bird], put out a notice in the FabFree group about a time-sensitive, new group gift thingy they are doing, and thingy is totally the technical term I am going for. They are calling it the [free bird] free-for-all give away. The first item to try out this new system is this beautifully embroidered, flowey, mesh Sunday Tank Top. Now, I’ll explain how this works. You join the [free bird] group, which is free to join, and then you find the poster of the tops and click on it, you will be given one random colour, out of 5, for free! It’s like a free gacha, the catch is, you only get 1 per person, but like other gacha’s, the tops are transferable. So if you and a friend go, and each get a colour that the other wanted, you can swap! Or, as I did , you can join the group with an alt, and transfer as needed (of course, I only did this purely because I wanted to show you all a couple of the colours…really, LOL) As I said, this is a limited time offer, only good until July 21st, and then they will no longer be free, so don’t miss out!

TheCornfieldCollage1

I also wanted to show off this cute SLink nail applier set I lucked out in finding for free on the Marketplace! The Shady Ladies- Sailor Jerry SLink Nails are a summer freebie exclusive, and come in a handy single HUD format that will change both your fingernails and toenails at the same time. I just love the classic sailor tattoo theme of these nails. I’ve included a shot of the HUD so you can see the other textures you have as a choice.

TheCornfieldCollage3

OK, let’s get back to the monsters, shall we? If you are bored and are all shopped out one night, head over to The Cornfield, you won’t stay bored for long. Head to the back of the barn, and enter the portal there, you will be asked to give permissions of your av, agree to it, because once you land in the main barn, you will find that you now have a few new accessories. The lovely nailed board I am holding, and the cute basket on my back will both be attached to you, as well, there will be a HUD on your screen. The goal is to run around the cornfield picking up corn and corn bucks, which you can then use to buy yourself stuff in the main shop, including upgrades in weapons as well as armor. The catch…. the field is full of monsters, I have provided a few examples below. Really, it’s a lot of fun! Make sure you read the notecards you are given, and invite a bunch of friends, I had a blast. Bashing monsters is a great way to get rid of any stress you may have :)

TheCornfieldCollage2

I have to say, I did pretty good. I only died once (don’t worry, it was pretty painless), and I did not get any blood on my shirt! That is a bashing well done :) Until next time, TTFN *waves her board high in the air*

Dazed but not Confused

Waves hello! I was in a hippie/ganja/fantastical kind of mood the other night. I found some fabulous freebies to put together and show you. First up is this really cool hood from Spyralle called the Parchment Scroll Silk Hood with Enamel Brooch. It’s a free gift from the store. I snapped a couple of pics so you could see the brooch detail and the hood’s texture. My nice shades are a free gift from ChiChickie! You can find it right inside the store’s entrance. The hair style is also a free gift from Chichickie! It’s a subscribo gift called Ameris and this color is dark auburn; it comes with a universal HUD that allows color/texture/resize. The skin is a sale item ($50L) from .::WoW::. It’s the Taylor tan 03 and it comes in 6 versions. I am also wearing the “more freckles tattoo” included in the skin package.

I saw this beautiful coat at Spyralle when I was picking up my free hood and I HAD to have it! The texture is a fractal art design named the Lotus Seaglass.   I paid $200L for the coat but it was money well spent. I paired it with this partially free outfit from Allusions. The jeans are free and the top, Summer:Lake:S, cost me a whole $10L! It was a good day for me.

More July 4th Fabness

I know this post is a day late for Independence Day but the celebration does carry over to the weekend. YAY!!! It’s a long weekend for the hard-working Americans out there. I found more Fabness to celebrate the 4th of July. I had a lot of fun putting these together and finding different spots to take these photos.

I got this teeny red, white, and blue bikini at ViVi and it was a free gift for all. It was a great grab! Snowpaws had this really cute American Flag headband for sale ($100). I added these truly fab heels from Shoenique Designs ($99L). I thought the heels were well worth the price. This pic was taken at Ihla Brasil Rio. I loved the look of the surf and rocks right off the beach.

My dress is fitted mesh from Paisley Daisy and was so excited to find this cute dress for only $10L at a limited Time Only sale. My shoes are the same ones pictured above from Shoenique Designs ($99L). I decided to change my hair to my favorite style, Sonja, from Alli&Ali. That was a very welcome MM surprise.

Always Trust the Navigator!

I grew up on the water (in the swamps really) and have always been the navigator on road trips so when I found out about this outfit I HAD to have it! I love all things nautical and B!asta designed this great outfit. The best part is that it is Free in The Sail Away Hunt (June 5th, going to June 26th) if you can find the Fish!

While looking around for a photo shoot spot I happened upon the RMS Titantic – Perfect! I have to wonder if I had been the navigator maybe that pesky iceberg might have been avoided.

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.
