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.

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.

Hey fabbies! I hope you’re having a great weekend, I know I am! I’ve spent my weekend fishing at Sn@tch! It’s always so exciting when they release a new fishing outfit, isn’t it? The quality of Ivey’s items never cease to amaze me, and the gifts (fishing outfits included!) are always extremely generous, and this outfit is no exception! Oceanside amusement park has 23 pieces for you to fish for, and they can be caught with either the casual or pro 7Seas fishing rod, I believe the demo rod will also work, but that disappears after 10 catches.

There are so many ways to combine and customize this outfit, it would be really great for just about any occasion, and because it includes appliers for lolas tangos and the ghetto booty, it’s perfect for everyone!

By the oceanside_005

They say that the devil’s in the details, and the little things included with this outfit are definitely my favourite parts! In addition to all of the clothing pieces you see above, and more, the outfit also includes shoes, a really lovely necklace, and matching makeup.

Stay fabulous, everybody!

Sn@tch Fishing Prize: Spring Can’t Wait

Snapshot_003

“Give me back my shoe!”  Those darn seagulls!  I take one little trip to the beach to try to escape the winter blahs and the summer blahs get me too!

I wanted to do up a little post to let you know about the current Sn@tch 7 Seas Fishing prize!  I believe it will be switched out to a new prize on Wednesday so you’ll have to grab your rod and get crackin if you’d like to “fish for this”.  The current prize is called Spring Can’t Wait and in the above photo I am wearing a few of the pieces, but below I have included Sn@tch’s vendor photo so that you can see all of the 21 pieces included.  There are even Lola Tango and Slink appliers!

The rod will cost you 100L to purchase, but it can be used multiple times after that.  No bait purchase is required at the Sn@tch 7Seas Fishing Pond.

Fly Me to the Moon (and Back)

Fly me to the moon
And let me play among the stars
Let me see what spring is like
On Jupiter and Mars

Today is the last day of FutureWave, and as promised, I’ve got a few more goodies to show you. There are so many amazing creations on display… I wish I could show you more, but unfortunately RL has kept me hopping all week. In fact, the thought of flying off to the moon sounds really appealing after the week I’ve had! :-P But enough about that… here’s the stuffs!

Blogging soon

This gorgeous dress is by .:ellabella:. at FutureWave, available in several different color combinations. The texture is outstanding IMHO, and I really like the space design on the skirt. It comes with the pretty necklace I’m wearing. Not free, but a really great deal for all you get. Ok, so… what IS free? These glowy, neon wings by Stuck Products are free! I love these so much, especially since you can change the color to match what you’re wearing. The wings are part of an entire glowy, neon angel outfit, all of which is FREE. You can find it next to the typing discs I showed yesterday.

If you are wondering, this fun, To the moon and back pose prop is by ~*HopScotch*~. You can find it at the current round of Genre… six cute poses are included. :-)

Blogging soon

How much do I love this skin?? Seriously… WOW. I’ve been wearing Pink Fuel skins pretty much since I landed in SL and figured out how to shop, but I always felt they had a slightly younger face than I would have liked. Now… here is Sora, and she is beautiful! This special edition in the alabaster tone is currently available at FutureWave. It’s not free (I know, “Booooo Serena!”), but it is a really fabulous deal for such a lovely skin. Lots of eye make-ups and lipsticks in the package, along with basically every type of applier you could want, as well as this supernatural face glow which I’m wearing here (which made my face all shiny and alien-ish). You can bet that I’ll be tapping my fingers and sighing impatiently until the full version of Sora is finally released! …le sigh… Anyway, if you want to give Sora a try but don’t want to spring for the special FutureWave edition, you can still pick up the Sora Flushed skin for 75L at the Pink Fuel main store (Love showed it here).

Finally, two more FutureWave freebies/cheapies. My mani/pedi is a free gift from ~*By Snow*~. The nails have a “circuit” design, and the version I’m wearing comes in black or silver. There is also a gold version in the box, as well as a face tattoo. And last up is this cool Steampunk ring from Chaos, Panic, & Disorder. Obviously you can’t see it in the picture, but the gears spin around… how cool is that? There is also a men’s version available – only 1L each!

Did I mention that FutureWave ends TONIGHT (23 Feb 2014) at midnight? So why are you still reading this? Go! GO NOW! :-D

My Slinky Dorothy

My slinky Dorothy

Skins: My ugly dorothy – Special 1L skin 7,8,9 & 10 (1L$ each)
Hair: Elikatira – Conclusion (Retired)
Eyes: Dead apples – Sorrow eyes (Group gift)

So you’re wanting to update your look but money’s been a bit tight this month? Or you’re new to Second Life and are looking for cheap skins? Look no further than My Ugly Dorothy! They have a whopping 10 dollarbies out at their store right now, above you can see numbers 7-10 (if you’d like to see 1-6, check out Love’s post here) and there’s even a freebie which I covered on here before. These skins are so pretty, I really love number 8 and 10 so you might see me wear them more often!

My slinky Dorothy

Shoes: Slink – Women’s casual leather slides (Group gift)

Yesterday, Slink sent out these gorgeous heels to the group and they are just to die for (I haven’t taken them off since I bought them!). You need to own Slink feet in order to wear them like in the photo but if you don’t, try them out anyway, you might be able to wear them without slink feet. The group costs 10L$ to join but that’s nothing considering you get 2 free and beautiful shoes! There’s even a group gift for the boys who own the new men’s slink feet! Finding free slink add-ons is like pulling teeth so don’t miss this opportunity for some free shoes! The gift is in the past notices so it will only stay there for 14 days. Get going!

Flowers and Candy

Where I live in RL, we basically have 3 seasons: winter, spring, and October. For some reason, summer never shows up during, well, summer, but instead creeps in during October. And it’s not the good kind of summer, where the days are long and hot, and the nights are warm. It’s more of what people call “Indian Summer” (and I have no idea why), where the days are warm and breezy, nights are cool, and the sun goes down way too early. Since we were mostly denied a real summer this year, I’m still trying to hang on to what I can of summer in SL. So here I am, out on the boardwalk, enjoying a cotton candy. Ah… just a little bit longer, please.

Blogging soon

My jeans and vest are the latest group gift from Tres Beau Designs. Perfect for a pretend, summer afternoon. My sunflower necklace is a free gift from *HopScotch*, which you’ll find in a box at the desk. Love showed it a loooong time ago, but it’s still available, still free, and I thought it looked cute with my FREE sunflower sandals, which are a subscribo gift from *HopScotch*. New subscribers will receive the gift automatically when you subscribe; current subscribers should hit the “previous notices” box and select #5 and Deliver. My cotton candy pose is not free, but is one of a set of 5 poses by *HopScotch* for The Candy Fair. Xanthe showed you some Candy Fair gifts yesterday. Tomorrow, October 18th, is the last day of The Candy Fair, so hurry on over if you want to check out the sweet goodness! ;-)

Hey fabbies!

I have two different outfits for you today using hunt items, group gifts and luckyboard items!

First off, the floral skirt and pastel jacket are both luckyboard prizes from Sencha-an at the Kiyomizu mall. Both are mesh and HUD controlled so you can change the colour and design on each! Whilst you’re waiting for your letter to come up, have a look around the store for a little black cat called Ponta! He’s on the lose again and if you catch him you get the outfit seen on the left! The outfit comes with the dress and boots you see pictured, but it also has suspenders, stockings and mesh nails which aren’t shown in the image. There are 80 stores in the Kiyomizu Autumn hunt so be sure to have a look around all the shops and catch that pesky little kitty!

Whilst we’re on the topic of animals, Hello Rabbit now has an inworld store where you can pick up this adorable knee tattoo for just 1L$! It will only stay at that price for today though so be quick! If you miss out, don’t worry! It’s available on the marketplace for 25L$.

My snuggly scarf and sweater are both free group gifts from Kyoko couture! They’re not mesh and there are so many other group gifts on the shelf for you to pick up also including a fatpack of coloured socks and some bikinis!

And last but not least, my iron butterfly necklace on the left is 10L$ at The wash Cart sale by Krystal! Love also showed you this necklace in her pretty post here if you want to check it out!
