The Vordun


The Vordun

Welcome back Fab Free’rs! I’m super excited you’re here. I’m always excited you’re here, but I have a fun post to share with you today that I hope you’ll enjoy. Along with showing off the sassy halter dress Glitter has out as their free Fabulously Free in SL group gift, I wanted to share with you a fun destination I recently discovered. The Vordun is a fully functional art museum and gallery with a well curated collection complete with a detailed audio experience that you can visit and enjoy for free. It was on a whim that I ended up here on a date not too long ago, and it was genuinely a fun and interesting way to spend time with someone in Second Life without going to a club or wading through crowds at an event. Not to mention, The Vordun is a beautifully done venue.

The Vordun Lobby
As you enter the building, The Vordun’s lobby is bright with the skylight overhead. One either side of the room you’ll see headsets you can click to allow the hud to attach so you can enjoy the audio presentation that goes along with your walk through the museum. The hud also attaches automatically as you enter further into the room. There are clear detailed instructions on how to use the hud and hear the information about each of the unique pieces of art in the museum. You can also take a look at the map on the wall to get a feel for how big the building really is.
The Vordun Gift Shop

You can choose to follow through the guided tour, which I’d recommend if you have a little free time and enjoy learning about each of the artworks. Alternately you can of course browse through The Vordun at your leisure. I found the exhibit about block printing was my personal favorite. There’s also a really interesting section about a global postcard project where people send postcards to another random participant anywhere in the world. As you round out your visit to The Vordun, there’s even a cute giftshop where you can buy different gifts or souvenirs to remember your visit. Once you’ve had your fill of the museum, I’d also suggest visiting the grounds. There is shopping, and if you follow the path away from The Vordun, you’ll end up at a cute little frozen yogurt shop where you can sit and have a treat while enjoying the scenery.

Glitter at The Vordun
Lastly, if you’re interested in Pru’s outfit for this post, it does as I mentioned include the most recent Fab Free group gift by Glitter. This beautiful copper/bronze colored halter dress is free to all Fabulously Free in SL group members. Just wear your Fab Free group tag and click the gift vendor at the Glitter main store. If you’re not already a member of the Fabulously Free in SL group, what are you waiting for?! The group is always free to join. This pretty little dress comes in several sizes, and has a hud that allows you to switch the skirt from short to long, choose whether the top is opaque or transparent or “remove” the dress entirely by making it completely transparent.
Sizes Included: Fitmesh (xs-XL), Fitmesh Maitreya Lara, Fitmesh Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Fitmesh Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Fitmesh EBody, Fitmesh Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Fitmesh TMP

Not Today

Not today

Ever have one of those days where nothing sounds good? I don’t want to work. I don’t want to research for the blog. I don’t want to read, I don’t want to do anything productive at all.  Not today.

Marco… Polo…

Luckily, I picked up this new group gift from Trashed before I got the blahs. This is the ‘Marco’ top and it’d the men’s gift this month. I like the black and white simple design. Perfect for wandering the Grid. Juli calls it goofing off… I call it “exploring”.

Sizes Included

  • Adam
  • Altamura
  • Exmachina
  • Signature
  • SLink

Basking in the Desert Sun

Desert Sunlight

Hello there, Fabulouses!  Ripley and I are still wandering around the grid doing our best to avoid winter.  Today, we traveled to the beautiful southwestern landscape over at Villa Baldeney.  One of my favorite aspects of the desert is the brilliance of the sunshine and the warmth in the air… (although I will probably deny this in the summertime!).  The adorable cropped top that I am wearing in my photo does a fantastic job of reflecting the light, AND it’s a free gift as well!

All Wrapped Up

I think you probably have already figured out how much I like the Kali Top from American Bazaar.  With its open back and sexy wrapped style, this little number is just right for catching some rays.  The shimmering texture and curve-hugging design of this free group gift flatter your figure, and the dark shade will coordinate with a variety of bottoms.  I chose long jeans, but could also see pairing the top with shorts, capris or even a skirt.  To pick up a copy for yourself, you need to be a member of the American Bazaar Fashion Group, but with a join fee of zero Linden dollars, it’s completely free!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

Hmmm, I see a vulture circling overhead.  Perhaps it’s time for Ripley and I to resume our rambling journey across the warmer weather sims in SL before that bird gets any ideas.  Until next time, happy shopping!
