Meet Me at Dusk

Enjoy Every Purple Moment

Hello Fabulous Readers!  I don’t know about you, but I can’t resist the color purple.  Today’s post features a gorgeous formal gown that I picked up for free as a hunt prize in the Twisted Hunt Fall 2021 (Beyond the Veil).  This is a time-sensitive post because the event draws to a close on September 30th, but this beauty is well worth a journey down the hunt trail.

Fit for a Royal

With its slightly puffed upper sleeves, intricate print on the bodice, and “v” shaped waistline, the free Clyra gown flatters your curves.  I love how the full-length skirt drapes gracefully to the ground and is loose enough to make it easy to move without being cumbersome.  I felt so elegant as I wore it, and found myself searching for a castle to visit.  Although it’s not designed specifically for a mesh avatar, I was able to get the perfect fit by adjusting the alpha of my Maitryea mesh body.  If you are still rocking a classic avatar, the included alpha layers will allow you to opt for wearing the dress with and without your feet showing.  As I stated earlier, the hunt runs only until the end of September, so if you like this frock as much as I do, head on over soon to DSO (Designs by Starla) to do some sleuthing of your own.  You’ll be searching for a small dusk-colored cube.

Sizes:

  • Alpha layers with and without feet
  • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, and L

Until my next post, happy hunting!

Like this beautiful gown from DragonLady’s Closet. This is the “Lavinia” gown and you can add it to your RP closet for some hunting and 0L. That’s right this beauty is free. The workmanship on the dress is gorgeous and the details are so pretty. I just love the soft floral print. It makes me think of princesses and far away kingdoms.

But like the ball that ends at Midnight… this Hunt is almost over so hurry hurry!

Beyond the Veil

Beyond the Veil

Hey FabFree! I’m back with not one or two awesome offerings but three today. Two from the Twisted Hunt and one from an old friend. So let’s jump in!

The Twisted Hunt is one of my favorite hunts of the year. The free prizes are always top notch and I love the challenge of those well hidden cubes. I hunted down the pesky cube at Moonlitecat Creations for longer than I want to admit but it’s so worth it to get this gorgeous ghostly dress. The “Dusk Dress” comes in two separate pieces so it could be added to your mix and match pieces with ease. The fabric is slightly see through making it feel so gauzy and spectral. Perfect for this Hunt’s theme of ‘Beyond the Veil’.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • eBody
  • FitMesh – XS – XL
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic – Curvy, Fine

My faithful steed, Ingamar, is also sporting a ‘Twisted’ prize today from another favorite Designer. The “Unveiled” coat  is from Lunistice. I love the subtle swirls of gray, steel blue and mauve. It fits our Hunt theme perfectly. The coat fits all Teeglepet Horses and the Avatar. It also includes hoof coloring.

My third gift is from a Designer that’s been one of my favorites and a past go-to: Lumae. I was very happy to reacquaint myself with Lumae when I saw that the quality of the skins has only improved and now offers BOM. I was going to say go join the free group and grab one of the Galetea skins….. BUT the inworld store seems to have closed down. You can still get this gorgeous skin for free on the Lumae Marketplace. I sincerely hope Lumae makes a come back inworld, such good designers are hard to find.

In the Twisted Shadows

In the Twisted Shadows

Good afternoon, Fabulous Readers. You may have heard Juli is feeling a bit under the weather so I have ever so graciously stepped in to post for us both today. because how could I not when we both look so “Twistedly” good?

Both Juli and I have been fighting our way through the Twisted Hunt this past week. For all the frustration, there are some truly excellent prizes for this round. Such as the full suit I am sporting today. This is the “Shadow Seeker” ensemble from Roped Passions. I had first thought the purple was too lavender but it is a good classic purple and the subtle pinstriping in the black fabric makes it just that more handsome. The suit is one piece but it does not include shoes.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza Jake
  • Fitmesh Classic
  • Signature – Gianni
  • SLink Male

Julianna’s sleek gown is also from Roped Passions and is the ladies gift for the Twisted Hunt. (Each prize is separately boxed.) The “Shadow Seductress” gown is the same classic purple and black and has subtle silver lightning tracks across the bodice and skirt. Both of these outfits are wonderfully crafted and the details stand out. Roped Passions has an excellent selection of men’s and women’s items so be sure to take a look around while you Hunt.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique

The Twisted Hunt runs until Sept 30th so time is catching up with us.

Don’t delay to cross “Beyond The Veil” soon.

The Colors are a Changin’

When Autumn Comes to Town

Hello Fabulous Readers!  I am popping in with a quick post to share my latest hunt prize and a budget-friendly crop top with you.  I know, I know, the leaves are changing, but I can’t bring myself to give up my summer tops just yet.

Don’t Forget to Be Owlsome

First, I just had to tell you about these adorable baubles from Loordes of London.  The Republican Redundancy earrings are part of the Changing of Colors Hunt 5 and feature shimmering gold accented with brown eyes and wing spots.  All you’ll need to do to add them to your inventory is to locate the hunt object, an orange leaf, hidden somewhere in the shop, then pay the tiny prize fee.  There are 25 stops along the hunt trail, and each item costs just one Linden dollar.  You have until September 30th to do some sleuthing of your own.

She’s a Rebel

Soon I will have to at least start wearing a jacket, but for now, I’m enjoying soaking up some sunshine on these early fall days as I take in the foliage.  My new Bebe Mesh Crop Top from !Rebel Hope is a lovely shade of brown that is perfect for the autumn landscape hues.  With its halter-style neck, soft texture, and cute laces on the side, it’s sure to please.  I picked it up on the Marketplace for a reasonable 25 Linden dollars.  The folder includes an alpha layer and sizes for classic avatars as well as versions for several mesh avatar body types.  A color change HUD for the laces with 8 options allows you to customize your look.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility

  • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, and L (includes alpha layer)
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

Until my next post, happy hunting!

Divine Wisdom of the Earth Goddess

Ancient Wisdom

The Twisted Hunt is a long tradition for hunters in SL.  It is notorious for being difficult, a real challenge.  Many (not all, thankfully for yours truly!) designers will lay out endless decoys making the prizes elusive and making the hunter *really* work for them.  This makes it a bit tricky for those of us who want to blog hunt items so we can show you what’s out there, as hunts can be time sensitive.  But by-golly it’s a tough job but *someone* has to do it!  We fab free sisters are always willing to go the extra mile for our devoted readers and fellow freebie fanatics.  😉

And so (yes I am starting a sentence with the word “and”, cause I’m a rebel like that!) in the spirit of all the hunters that have come before me, and those that will come after me, I bring you an absolutely stunning find from the Twisted Hunt.  This entire ensemble, headpiece included is what you will find via the free Twisted Hunt when you go to FMB Fashion.  The glow around this gown is no trick of photography, no filter has been applied, this dress comes with the soft glow you see here, making you feel absolutely radiant and ethereal!

This dress fits:

  • Fitmesh
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Physique
  • Curvy
  • Fine
  • Venus
  • Volumptuous

My coolio magic sphere is a free gift (with poses, though I used a different pose.  shhhhh) amongst others at Icons of Style, that require no group.  Lots of cute poses and some props for both the ladies and the men!  Well worth a visit, Persefona is there too, making it one of my favorite places to go when I need something fun for a photo.

Nearly the weekend, hang in gang!

Game Day

Game Day

Good afternoon, Fabulous Readers. As you read in Juli’s last post, she sent me over to the TWE12VE Event to pick up the free men’s gifts there. When I found these lounge pants and tee shirt from LooLoo & Platypus I knew they’d be perfect for relaxing around the house with a game. I have to admit… I’m a gamer. There’s little I enjoy more than an afternoon spend in Skyrim or the Fall Out wastelands. And these pajamas even come with a pack of “Gamer’s Clutter”. Then I saw that there was a matching set of ladies PJs and I had a feeling Juli was thinking the same thing I was: Game Day!! Time to show who’s the boss around here. 😉

Juli’s note: Oh, it’s on, Gamer Boi!

Before the Sun Sets

Before the Sun Sets

Okay, this is going to be a fast one, Fab-ers! Fast because the Wanderlust Weekend sale only lasts till midnight tonight!

My awesome new leather jacket and shirt are just 50L until midnight SLT tonight over at Petite Mort!  ((Sometimes merchants leave the items out longer. Don’t count on it though!!))The jacket and shirt are separate pieces and it comes with a HUD to pick one of twenty colors/patterns for the shirt. The shirt, however couldn’t really be worn on it’s own. This just gave me such a western vibe I had to grab my hat and boots and head out for a ride with Jack. 

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • SLink Hourglass

Now my closet is full of jeans but not many BOM jeans or appliers and this shirt with the untucked side needs it. So I hopped on to the MarketPlace and found these great applier/BOM jeans from Delizio. And the kicker… they’re free!  You get Maitreya and Omega appliers plus the System layer for BOM in eight different colors. That’s quite a pack for free!

Sizes Included

  • Maitreya Applier
  • Omega Applier
  • System Layer BOM

Yep, It Was Me

Yep, It Was Me

Hello there, Fab Free! I couldn’t resist spending another day at the beach during this end-of-summer holiday weekend. As you can see, things didn’t quite work out the way I had planned. At least I was able to enjoy my latest hunt prize, even if I didn’t get to have my picnic lunch. Does anyone know of a good SL dog trainer?

I Let the Dogs Out…

…well, at least one naughty dog who stole the hot dogs.  I figured I might as well ‘fess up.  What better way to do it than with my new cropped tank from The Bold Llama T-Shirt Company?  This gray top features the funny text proclaiming my guilt, as well as a figure-flattering fit and realistic wrinkles in the fabric.  It is a hunt exclusive item that I picked up for just 25L.  There’s also a 1L prize in the shop (another tank) that proclaims “I Like to Move It Move It,” but I thought this one was much more in line with the afternoon’s events.  Both items are part of the Bring on the Night Hunt, and can be yours if you locate the stars hidden somewhere in the shop.
