I <3 Winter Too

I have to admit: this is my favorite time of the year. Autumn is fading out in a blaze of glory and winter is just waking up.  The Winter Love Hunt is just my cup of tea… or hot cocoa. :)

winter love 3_001

This is a 0L hunt with twelve stops and a load of fun festive gifts. It runs from November 5th until December 5th. First up is Perfect Seduction and this pair of cozy jammies. The tank and lounge pants are one item so you can save on alpha space. I love the cheery red! I’m also wearing Little Bones ‘Feline” hair style for a ‘down time’ look. Feline is one of the past group gifts from Little Bones (still available in store) that Pru Rexroth showed us here.

I also found Lushish Catz’s Winter Blue sweater and snowflake jeans.  I paired them up with Pure Poison’s Winteria necklace which was a past group gift. But if you like it, it’s still available ( along with a ton more free group gifts) at the Pure Poison main store. My hair which is getting full of snowflakes here, is Olive’s ‘Flutter’ hair from the Gacha at the main store. We first saw this gacha prize in Skyler Glasswing’s post here.

Lastly, something a little fun and different. Ready to play Santa’s helper this Christmas? Siren’s Moon has got the perfect outfit for you!  It comes with the boots, the shorty dress and the jaunty Santa hat. I love the flirty snowflakes ‘falling’ from the skirt! Just the thing to pass out Christmas Cookies in.

Here I go…Whooshhhh!

Hello fabulous ones! My weekend is being a little lazy, so I thought I would find some excitement in SL, and go sledding! How much fun is that! I grew up near a great sledding hill, so have a lot of fond memories of whooshing downhill on my toboggan.

wheee5

My first step was to find a sled. That turned out to be way easier than I thought it would. I was wandering around the November Vintage Gacha event, which has a lot of gachas from other, older events, and low and behold, KEI Spot had a gacha with these wonderful, wearable snowflyers. Yes, I said wearable! For only L$30 a play, you will get a sled that can be used anywhere that allows scripts, even if you cannot rez things, because you wear it instead of putting it on the ground. Once attached, you click on the sled, and have your choice of 3 positions, the first picture I put up was the sit, and the last picture of my post is the tummy pose. There is also a straddle pose, which I did not show. Here’s a little hint, if you find the sled floating above the ground, try changing your shape’s hover. Oh, and how cute is the bunny that rides with you! The November Vintage Gacha event runs until the 29th, so don’t wait too long to check it out.

wheee2

If you’ve ever been sledding, you know that your apparel is very, very important! You do not want to end up with frostbitten extremities. Trust me, I know from experience :P . I found some great boots to cover my tootsies, from Baby Monkey. The colour-changeable Szondi boots are one of their current free group gifts, you only have to join the group/wear your tag, and slap the board to get them, although it does ask you for L$1, don’t worry, it’s refunded. The group is L$250 to join, but this is one generous group, not to mention there are group only lucky boards you gain access to as well.

wheee3

With  my toes covered, I then made sure my ears were. The current round of The Dressing Room Fusion just started, and you will find these super cute earmuffs there. They are from Buttery Toast, and are only L$55 per colour, with 3 colours to choose from. The band, bow and bead decorations are all colour change by hud, so you can make them work with almost any outfit you put together. They are the perfect finishing touch to a winter look.

wheee4

Alrighty, I think I am ready to go. Although now that I am laying on my stomach, this hill looks a lot steeper than I thought! Wish me luck! Until next time, TTFN!

Weeeee…….

To the Lords and Ladies of the Fabulous Realm…

Greetings Oh Fabulous Ones,

druid 1_001

I have just returned from a far away land of Gacha and I come bearing many splendid treasures for you, fine gentle folk.

Okay, imagine I was saying that in a fancy Olde English accent!

The Fantasy Gacha Carnival is open for business and there actually ARE many a splendid offing there. Eighty one designers have come together and set out some very fine fantasy gear for us this November with most offering two or more gachas. The Carnival runs until November 30th so you only have a little time left to get your Medieval on! You can check out the website for a preview here. One of the best things about this Carnival is the ton of men’s items here. Many of the vendors offered both male and female selections or unisex items.

First up is Zenith’s Druid. I love the wooden vines that twist and curl around the upper armor and bracers. Zooming in shows the delicate texture of bark and twigs. The simple linin skirt moves well and sets off the detailed leather works.  I was lucky enough to pull both of the rares on this machine! The branching crown AND the two handed wand. I was thrilled to find a “new to me” hair vendor at the Carnival! I’m wearing Blues’ hair in ‘Grace’
druid coll.

 

Next up is a Ranger outfit from !gO!  I didn’t pull the rare but I was lucky enough to get the jacket and the skirt in the same color and style. !gO!’s booth has both a men’s machine and outfit as well as the girl’s selection. The pose is from Rack Poses and their “priestess” gacha. There are six common poses and one rare couple pose. They all come with the eagle prop! At 50L a play, I grabbed several.  I’m also wearing Little Bones ‘Ranger’ hair in the Landslide pack.

Lastly, I wanted to show you the rest of the Snow Queen set from The Annex.  In addition to the beautiful pearl earrings and chocker, this set has a pair of pearl ‘eye lashes’ and a diadem. There’s also a gorgeous crown but I wasn’t lucky enough to pull it. :(  Maybe next time.  The gown comes in a plethora of colors so I just picked my favorites: Forest, Twilight and Calypso.

I’m also wearing Damselfly’s blowin’ around hair “Gretchen.”  The rare also comes with a set of butterflies woven into the locks. I love the dynamic of the piece. Sure makes for a great picture!

5000 Thanks yous

loft_001

I took a break from organizing and photographing the ginormous Fantasy Gacha Carnival finds to run around a bit… play some lucky boards, catch up on the group gifts.  No luck on the lucky boards but I did find a new handbag at S@bbia on the group board. The bag comes with a color changer for four wardrobe choices. Score!

Now I have a new handbag… I need a new outfit to go with it, right?  I popped over to Prism and found just the thing.  This perfect-for-Fall sweater, skirt and leggings combo is up at Prism as a free 5000 Thank you gift to the Group members! Prism’s Group, it is free to join and the gifts are left up for a generous length of time. You can still grab the multiple sets back in the group gifts area. Plus, Prism has several Hunts running AND has an extensive Discount area.
Hope you Fab Folks are having a great Saturday!

An Early Holiday Gift!

red dress_001

Just a quick one this time. This gorgeous gown is a free Holiday Gift from Paris Metro. It’s definitely getting me in the holiday spirit. I had just hit the Annex gacha machine at the Fantasy Gacha Carnival and had the beautiful Snow Queen gold and pearl chocker and earrings to finish this festive look. I don’t know how long the gown will be available so hurry over and find it upstairs on the desk. Oh, and the lovely pose is from Icons of Style and is free on the Marketplace!

Once Upon a Time…

BrothersGrimm1_001

Hello FabFree Folks!

I’ve been on the hunt again! This time I delved into the darker world of fairy tales with the Brothers Grimm Hunt.  This is a 2L per prize hunt and it has some very nifty things.  First up is the mesh Peasant dress from ..elation..  This was a new to me store and I very much enjoyed checking it out. The dress is very well made and moves nicely. I bet it would be perfect for a fantasy RP.  It was the perfect costume to find Potpourri Designs “Poisoned Apple on a Stone Pillar.” The pillar is a great prop for a picture or an RP but it is more than just a prop. It comes in several versions with and without the apple.  Completing the scene is the “Aponi” hair style from EMO-tions. This is one of the several in-store Gachas at the mainstore. I’m wearing the “naturals 3″, a pretty taffy blonde.

reshoot_001

One nice thing about this particular Hunt is there are a varity of styles for the prizes. I found the fantasy/medieval dress then found this funky tank top/short dress. This is B-UniQ’s “The Raven”.  Again, so nicely made!  I’m not daring enough to wear it alone so I paired it with these dollarbie black leggings from [Eve n Better] found on the Marketplace.  Topping off my look is the Argrace Welcome gift hair “Minato” which Tiana Omizu and Love Trill  showed us here.

Golden Opportunity

Hello Fabulous Readers! Welcome to my first blog post!  First off, a huge thank you to the Fab Free blog team for giving me this opportunity. I hope I can carry the torch as well as you ladies. I have some big Blog shoes to fill. How’s that for a mixed metaphor?

One of my favorite things to do in Second Life is hunt. There is nothing like looking high and low, tearing your hair out a little then finally spying the Hunt object. And it only gets better when the prizes are as nice as some of the ones from the Golden Thanksgiving Hunt. This is a 1L per prize hunt and it’s a Linden well spent!

This first item from GTH is just stunning: Darkmatter’s teal and black evening gown. The prize includes both the ladies gown and a matching men’s tuxedo. I can’t get over how beautifully this gown is made. Every little detail is so precise. If you zoom in you can even see filigree on the skirt.

ballgown1

Even the back of the gown is simply beautiful.

I paired the gown with Lunamoon Creation Shop’s gold and pearl jewelry set.  You get the entire set: necklace, earrings and both left and right bangles.

ballgown 2

Lastly, I’m wearing Firelight Creation’s Slink nails set. The set is both manicure and pedicure and contains nine sparkly golden themed colors plus a basic French manicure nail.

Also on the Golden Thanksgiving hunt is this flirty ruffle dress from Mishmash Fusion.  Short and a little daring, I think it’d be perfect for a jazz club.  The stiletto heels come with the dress and are for Slink High feet. Mishmash also has a great matching men’s outfit in the prize as well.

Calle and Shamic are layered sweater buddies! Hmmm…that sounds odd.

Oh boy, do I have a lot to show you in this post! Well, not just me, but Shamic as well. So let’s get right to it!

wilderness3

I’m going to start with myself first. This super cute, mesh sweater is currently available at the Bargain Gacha event, and it’s from Mag<3.B. For L$30 a play, you can try your luck at winning 1 of 9 different versions. I really wanted the rare, but I kept winning the same 2 over and over again (keep an eye out at the FabFree yardsale, you might see my extras there!). I was happy, however, to win this purple version called POIS, as it just so happened to match the purple boots that were given out as a group gift from REIGN today, as a nice surprise. The Laced Lavie boots were REIGN‘s Saturday Sale item, and were all priced at a super affordable L$75 a colour, but, when KenedeeCole, one of REIGN‘s co-owner’s, was putting the boots out last night, in her sleepy state, she forgot to put out the purple pair! As a super generous gesture, she decided to send them out as a group gift when she realized what had happened. The group is L$250 to join, but as you can see, the fee is not bad, especially since the October group gift, which Tiana showed off quite nicely HERE,  is still in the notices.

wilderness1

Now, on to Shamic. He is showing off the November group gift from 7 Deadly s{K}ins for the guys, which has a really nice, slightly rugged looking face. Like the female gift I showed you a few posts back, it also come with appliers for SLink hands and feet! Yayy. The sweater he is wearing, is from Platypus , of LOoLOo & Platypus , who just so happen to have recently been added on as one of our FabFree fabulous designers! This Argyle sweater in Teal is from the Fashion Play Hunt for Him (there is also a for Her route as well), and for only L$1, you get this colour, plus 5 others. Can’t beat 6 sweaters for L$1! Also from the Fashion Play Hunt are the gorgeous blue eyes he has on. Those are from * InkHeart *, and along with the male gift, there is a prize for the Her side as well, which are an equally pretty pair of eyes in brown. Each are L$1. This hunt runs until November 15th, so you have plenty of time to check it out. Check out this blog for a list of stores participating in both side of this hunt, as well as hints for the prizes. Last but not least, Shamic needed a pair of shoes that were not sneakers, or boots :P I went searching on the Marketplace, and found the HOC Casual Loafers, for only L$30. To make this deal even better, the shoes have a texture change script, so you have several colour options to choose from, to match any outfit.

wilderness2

Phew! I think I got everything! All I know is, I am beat after all this running around, and putting together Shamic’s look as well as my own. I think he needs to do some of his own shopping frankly. LOL.

OK lovelies, I am going to leave you with a pretty picture of us as we enjoyed the sound of water lapping against the beach. Ahhh.

Until next time, TTFN!
