I’m Blossom-ing

finesmith_mar4_001f

Happy Sunday, Fabulouses! I’ve been dying to see some spring, so I decided to show you this gorgeous Blossom gown and headpiece, which are the March group gift from Finesmith Jewelry. :-) And just as I was finishing up these photos, I got a note that the April group gift is out at Finesmith, so be sure to pick that one up too, while you’re there! My pose is from the March gift pack at Diesel Works Animations, originally shown by Skyler here. Be sure to grab yours before the gift is gone!

Blogging soon!

This pretty Mimi skin by Belleza is still available at The Arcade Gacha Event. I’m wearing makeup #3 (rare); Love showed #9 here. I have added a glossy lipstick by Lumae, which you can find in a free pack of 6 colors at The Skin Fair. Last day for both events is TODAY, so hurry over! BTW, I am smiling ever-so-slightly for the FabFree Photo Challenge #7: Show Us Your Smile. Sadly, I’m a day late for the challenge, but hey, better late than never, right? :-D

The Black Event: .:pure:.

Blogging soon!

Good evening, Fabulouses! As you’ve already seen many times here at FabFree, The Black Event is in full swing at The Wash! I’ve got some sexy, black goodies for you tonight from the .:pure:. cart. This Raven Gown is cut waaaay down to *there* in the back, perfect for heating up a cold, winter night. ;-)

.:pure:. Raven Black Lace Gown (50L @ The Black Event)

If Steampunk is more your thing, check out this Bessy Jacket and Pants outfit. It comes with the mesh jacket with tails, as well as two pairs of pants, one red and one black.

My graphics card was coughing and sputtering by the time I took this photo (Firestorm beta – yikes!), so I apologize that it is a bit pixelated. But I can vouch that this Veronica Dress is really quite pretty, and I think you can still see the delicate detailing, despite the too-big pixels.

.:pure:. Veronica Dress Black Vines (10L @ The Black Event)

This Diana Turtleneck Dress is my favorite of the bunch, and I’ve been wearing it all over SL today. The texturing is quite good, and I love that you can dress it down with boots, or dress it up with a fancy pair of your favorite heels! I’ve paired it with  the brand-new Harvest boots from *~*HopScotch*~*, which you can find on sale for 95L at the current round of My Attic. Eight different colors are available. One reason I’m sweating it with Firestorm Beta is because I want to see items that are materials enabled; you can see here what they look like with the graphics cranked up to 11. ;-)

A quick note about these Royalty Tights by ~Cannibelle~. You get six different colors in this pack, and you can wear them with or without your Slink feet; appliers are included, as well as tattoo/sock layers for each. I thought that was a pretty good deal for 95L! If you’d like to try out a pair of ~Cannibelle~ tights, check out Love’s post here, and pick up a free pair of November Rain tights at the current round of Acid Lily.

Finally, this cool, polka dot rug can be found at the Potpourri Designs cart at The Black Event. I’ll have more from them in a later post, as well as a couple of decor items available at the .:pure:. cart not shown here. And last but not least, the French plates on the wall behind me and the I Love You canvas are both dollarbies from floorplan. There are quite a few other decor items set out at floorplan. for either 0L or 1L, so be sure you check them out… and don’t miss all the books on the counter!

Last Chance for The Wash Cart Sale: Fab-Fae!

First, I want to apologize for the quick, scatterbrained post today. But due to real-life demands, and the complete lack of cooperation between my computer and SL, I was only able to crank out these 2 quick photos. :-( I really wanted to let you know that today is the LAST DAY of The Wash Cart Sale, and show you some of the cuteness at the Fab-Fae cart!

Blogging soon

Fab-Fae Teal Suede Blouse (10L @ The Wash Cart Sale)

Fab-Fae Flora Mini Dress Blueberry (10L @ The Wash Cart Sale)

This is by no means everything available at the Fab-Fae cart. The Flora dress is also available in chocolate, there are several other cute tops for sale, and even a couple of dresses for petites – all for only 10L each! You’ve got just a few more hours to head over and check out the great stuff at The Wash Cart Sale, so don’t miss out!

A couple of other notes: the gorgeous Chop Zuey jewelry I’m wearing was previously shown here by Care. She’s showing a bit more than jewelry in this post, so be sure to sneak a peek! ;-) My eyes are the current IKON group gift, which Xanthe showed here. My poses are part of the September gift pack from Diesel Works, which Care showed not long ago here. Great minds think alike, eh? Finally, my shoes are not free, but are super cute! They’re by *HopScotch* for your Slink Mesh Feet, and currently available at My Attic for only 95L. 8 colors are available! :-)

Mad Mae and the Barber

There was a barber and his wife
and she was beautiful…
a foolish barber and his wife.
She was his reason and his life…
and she was beautiful, and she was virtuous
And he was naive.

Blogging soon!

The musical Sweeney Todd was released when I was in high school (don’t do the math, please). I thought the music was fabulous, and must have worn out the grooves in my Original Broadway Cast recording. So, when I saw a picture of this barber chair as a prize in the Sinister Steampunk Hunt 3: Mysteries of the Unknown, I knew I had to have it. :-)

Today is the final day of the SSH3, so I’m showing you a few more of my favorites from this unusual hunt. My outfit is Mad Mae by Cog & Fleur, and includes the dress, apron, and “tool belt.” There is an extra gift set of tools set out at C&F, so be sure to pick those up – I couldn’t decided between the scalpel or the bloody hammer, but I went with scalpel. This room is by Potpourri Designs, and includes the fireplace, rug, lamps, bonsai tree, and a silver music box. There’s even a ghost in the box, but she wouldn’t stand still for photos, so I put her back. This amazingly detailed barber chair and accoutrements (mirror, table, shaving items, and posters over the fireplace) is from [noctis]. Several other interesting and grisly items are included in the box, so you’re sure to have hours of fun shaving your friends… and enemies. ;-)

Blogging soon!

Mad Mae comes with a notecard explaining her very sad tale of woe, so be sure to read that. It will explain why there’s a tentacle in my belt. Well, mostly. I’m not sure what the green and red splatters are, but I’m going with chemical spill, based on the test tubes hanging from my belt. My necklace is the SSH3 gift from Cake Fox Jewellery.

Blogging soon!

Here’s a shot of the outside of the “lair.” Plenty of room inside for plotting your dastardly deeds, whatever they may be. ;-)

Professor Grieferschock and The Mad Alchemist

“Lulled in the countless chambers of the brain, our thoughts are linked by many a hidden chain; awake but one, and in, what myriads rise!”  ~ Alexander Pope

Blogging soon!

Why yes, I am wearing a giant potion syringe on my back. You just never know when a you’ll need to inject someone very large with a potion. Oh, and it drips, so watch out.

Blogging soon!

Serena sent me out to pick up a couple of gifts from the Sinister Steampunk Hunt 3: Mysteries of the Unknown. First is this awesome, unisex Mad Alchemist outfit by Brain Circuit Inc. It includes the hat, coat, pants (under the coat), gadget belt, and giant potion syringe (there are some smaller pieces for the ladies). My electrifying gloves are from Chaos, Panic, & Disorder, and are really quite amazing. I poked myself in the eye with them several times, but thank goodness this is SL and I’m fine. My skin is the men’s group gift from Story Leaf. Serena showed the ladies gift a few days ago. There are several scars, so I must have sliced my face with these babies a few times, too. Alchemy is not for the faint of heart.

The Sinister Steampunk Hunt 3 runs until August 31st, and all prizes are free.

Sinister and Steampunk

Looking for something “different” to do, I ventured off into the Sinister Steampunk Hunt 3: Mysteries of the Unknown. Now, I’ll admit that prior to this hunt, Steampunk itself was a mystery of the unknown to me. The idea has always fascinated me, but I have just never had the chance to see what it was all about. So… this was definitely a new experience for me, and I saw things and parts of SL that I had no idea existed. In one store, a small brain in a flying saucer followed me around. I wasn’t sure if I should be flattered or scared! But this really is a fun hunt, especially if you’re looking for some cool Steampunk stuff. :-)

Blogging soon!

My outfit – shirt, vest, pants, boots, and hat – are the SSH3 prize from Rag Dollz Steampunk Emporium (there is an identical version for the fellas in the box). The outfit also comes with a pair of glasses, but I took them off to mess with my eyes (see below) and forgot to put them back on. And there is a ray gun strapped to my leg. A RAY GUN, how cool is that?! At least, I think it’s a ray gun. Like I said, my knowledge of Steampunk is pretty limited. Anyway… the chaise behind me is the SSH3 gift from The Vintage Touch, and it comes with several animations for singles and couples. The cabinet is from An Lema, and includes the three curio items on the left:  an antique telescope, a picture of a Steampunked kitty, and… wait for it… a LION’S HEART beating in a cage. I mean, who doesn’t need one of those? The lamp is from Nadeau Shoppe; you can make one or both of the gears spin. Finally, the picture of Princess Victoria on the wall is from Sanna Science and Art. You have a choice of several antique frames, or you can use one of your own. And the seagulls are animated. I kept expecting Princess Victoria to start talking to me a la Harry Potter, but alas, she doesn’t move or speak.

Blogging soon!

I picked up these eyes from the Midnight Mania board at Rag Dollz. They’re part of a pack of six Steampunk Oddity Eyes, and they come in “regular” and unrigged mesh so you can mix and match. I’ll admit that they were rather huge on me, so I had to pick up a resizer script and mess around with them until they looked less huge. This was as small as I could get them, but I think they look pretty good. I mean, who doesn’t need a little earth in their eyes? My little shoulder pet friend is also not a hunt gift. I actually picked him up from a BubbleHut gacha during Fantasy Faire a few months ago, and I’ve been looking for an excuse to wear him. I think we match nicely. ;-) Oh, and I didn’t get a good shot of my nails appliers, but they are only 1L on the Marketplace. You can see a picture here.

The Sinister Steampunk Hunt 3 runs until August 31st, and all prizes are free. But you’ve only got a few more days, so hurry!

Angelica

This is one of those photos that just “happened.” I had nothing really in mind; I just started moving things around and playing with windlight until it looked right. Sometimes those impromptu pictures are the ones that come out best. :-)

Blogging soon!

Anyway… my dress is Angelica, the current group gift from Kastle Rock Couture. Included are the boots and stockings, and there are Lola’s appliers in the box. I’m wearing everything except the Lola’s appliers, but you can mix and match the pieces for a… um… less “modest” wearing option. ;-) My earrings are a free gift from Always Eclectic, and my nail appliers – which you basically can’t see here – are from a big box of HUDs in the group notices of MOCK Cosmetics. I’m wearing Nebula, but there are 18 other colors in the box to choose from. There are lots of generous gifts in the MOCK notices right now, so be sure you snap them all up!

*You petites out there can pick up the Angelica group gift at Kastle Enchanted Petites.
