For the night is dark and full of terrors

If you haven’t guessed by now, I’m a huge Game of Thrones fan. I was in love with the books from the day the first one hit the shelves waaayyy back when.  SO when I saw that Seraphim was hosting a GoT inspired event… I was really really excited. The Conquest Event did not disappoint!

night_001

There are a ton of designer who clearly love Games of Thrones as much as I do. First up, this is the Melisandre set from Sweet Lies.  For 50L per play you can celebrate our favorite Red Woman, priestess of the lord of light and all around burn ’em all gal. There are five common dresses, all in shades of conflagration red and three rares: The golden chain belt, the handful of fire both of which I’m showing plus a ruby necklace.

night_002

Now I know that Melisandre didn’t work for the Targaryens but when I found this gorgeous necklace in Lost Junction’s gacha for just 50L per play and I knew I was going to go “off book” for this post. There are nine necklaces, one for each of the great Houses, with no rares. With my necklace in place, I went looking for something for my hair and I found the ‘Kyla’ gcaha from Distorted Dreams.  There are eight jeweled commons, four in gold and four in silver. The rares are these tiaras with the jewels and the roses. Technically there are four rares: black roses with gold metal, black roses with silver metal, red roses with gold and red roses with silver. However you get both the gold and silver versions of the roses when you pull a rare.

Your taxi to The Conquest Event which runs until July 10!

Dreaming in Blue

Happy Friday, Fab Free Folks!  I’m popping on to show y’all a Fifty Linden Friday item so this is gonna be quick! *waves to Kimmie Banufong* Thanks for the tip!

Hunt_001

First, the shoes. These are the Gabby Plats Heel for SLink ( and Belleza and  Meitreya AND The Mesh Project) High Feet from Reign. For this Friday special you can grab the fatpack for just 50L. I love the lace overlay detail, it’s so unusual and it’s really well done here.  But if you want it you need to hurry!

Second, is this gorgeous dress from More Than Ever. This is the ‘Blue Forest’  dress and it’s MTE’s prize for us girls in the 1L Midsummer Night’s Dream Hunt. There is a matching loincloth/ kilt for the guys in the prize box too and it’s… very smexy! *waggles her eyebrows*  All of the Hunt’s items are inspired by fantasy and fairies but this fluttery summer dress is too pretty to only have one label. Wouldn’t this be perfect for a day in the park or a warm summer evening’s outing?  Unlike the heels, you have until July 21 to get your Hunt on and scoop up all the 1L prizes!

Your Friday Hunt Report

HUNT SL here-comes-summer-full-perm-hunt-posterHappy Friday my Fabulous Friends! Summer will be officially here on Sunday… summer solstice… the longest day of the year. Well, for those of us in the northern hemisphere anyway. If you live down under, then it’s mid winter. But that’s neither here nor there. There are a bunch of great hunts going on anyway, and many of them have a summer theme… or at least make a nod in that direction.

We’re starting to see more full-perm hunts, which is great if you’re a builder or a content creator. Check out the Here Comes Summer or the Keep Calm & BBQ Full Perm hunts if you like full-perm stuff.

Both FabFree and HUNT SL have excellent pages if you want to get started with hunting if you haven’t been before, and some great tips even if you’re a veteran hunter.

Check out all these hunts and find the one that’s right for you. Poking the names will lead you to more information.

See you out on the hunt!

Twinkle Twinkle Little Bat…. Or “We’re all mad here…”

“Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?”
“That depends a good deal on where you want to get to.”
“I don’t much care where –”
“Then it doesn’t matter which way you go.”

littleBat_003

Like the Cheshire Cat’s quote, no matter where you go in the Alice’s Adventures in Sexyland Fair, you’re going to find something fun, outrageous and just a little smexy.  This is the ‘Cheshire’ set  from The Little Bat.  The corset and skirt come in four iconic themes from Alice in Wonderland: The Queen, The Guard, The Hatter and The Cheshire ( which I’m wearing today) Each outfit comes with both the corset and the skirt as separates making them nicely versatile.  The Little Bat has also set out the cute “Drink Me” bottle necklace as a 1L gift. And if all that wasn’t enough, there are also two gahca machines at TLB: the “Elegant Bow” I’m showing and a matching “Elegant Chocker” both for 50L per play.

LitteBat Collage

7 Deadly Skins has also set out a nifty free gift for us. This is the “Patience” makeup on a tattoo layer. I love the soft lavender eye shadow  and the understated lip color.  Completing my look today is La Boheme’s fair gift for SLink nails: “LB Deco Fleur’ for just 1L.

The “Alice in Sexyland” Fair runs until June 26th so grab this taxi and head on over!

A little magic

It’s Tuesday, it’s Tuesday! And that means it’s 25L Tuesday which is the best sort of Tuesday for us Fantasy fashion fans! And just what IS 25L Tuesdays? Each Tuesday, some of the top Gorean/Fantasy/Role-play content creators Second Life has to offer  will place an item or two in their main store marked for sale at 25L.

tuesday_001

This is the Seppia outfit from Luas . You don’t just get the dress and the bangles I’m showing. There’s also a collar, a necklace and two anklets.  Luas also has a second outfit set out for the 25L sale and if you like something more warrior Amazon you need to check it out!

I saw the Seppia dress and I knew I wanted to add Pure Poison’s goddess sandals which I got ages ago so I popped over to the Pure Poison main store to see if they were still available. Of course, while I was there, I had to check out the group gifts and I saw this gorgeous necklace: the Roxanne. Pure Poison’s group is free to join and there are a ton of past gifts still available including this lovely necklace.

25L Tuesdays only lasts until 11:59 Second Life Time so don’t delay! You do not need to join the 25L Tuesday group to pick up the sale items, just grab the notecard available at the participating merchants.

Lazy Sunday

Hello FabFree Folks! I hope you’re having a wonderful Sunday afternoon. This is the perfect time to take a look at the Lazy Sunday sales.. it being…you know, Sunday… ANYWAY…   I knew the minute I saw Plastik’s name on the list I would be in for a treat and I wasn’t wrong!

LazySunday

This is the ‘Nyla Dress’ in the ‘Rorye’ pattern and it’s the Lazy Sunday special for 75L.  The dress comes in three gorgeous patterns for the sale and believe me, I really dithered over which one to choose.  While I was there, I took a quick wander around the Plastik mainstore and I am so glad I did.  I found this lovely gothic style necklace in one of the 45 gacha machines upstairs. Yes, forty five machines! And most of them were 50L.  This is the ‘Furah’ necklace and it’s in one of those 50L per play machines.

Lazy Sunday only lasts until 11:59 tonight (SL time) so enjoy the bargains!

White Widows Make the Best Outlaws

Sometimes we forget to steer our own ship. We forget that we are the captain in these turbulent seas. We let an ocean of troubles wash over us and crash us against rocks and we cry out to an invisible Poseidon that no longer rules the seas: “This is unfair!”

White Widows Make the Best Outlaws [2]

So, I say to the sailor — “Come back to the helm and steer yourself away from oblivion and back to the center of the glimmering sea which once rose about you in undulating waves! Do not wait on the deck of the boat while others steer your ship! They do not stand at the helm like immobile boulders! They are but human also! Do not wait for a turn at the wheel which may never come! Take to the wheel, fight tentacle monsters, dive for treasure, shoot cannons, seek adventure!”

But do it in style! Because a girl has got to look good while talking to dead men on pirate ships! And I have just the list of treasure booty to perk up that swarthy wardrobe in your empty trunk! Check it out!

If you head to LUAS they have great group gifts as well as several Lucky Boards. You have to join the group for access, but the group is FREE. I am wearing Luas May Outlaw in Black as I was lucky enough to have my letter come up when I landed! I also headed inside where they have an amazing assortment of gachas on display, all for reasonable prices. One sweet spin on the Luas Iballa gatcha and I had a Bracers, Pauldrons & Crown set in Red for only 50L (this is a great gatcha as instead of single pieces every spin gets you a full set, just a different color! <3 for that!).

White Widows Make the Best Outlaws

I topped the look off with a few other great accessories. [White~Widow] has a great new group gift out — a Face tattoo that sets around the eyes called “Mexico.” It comes in a color pack with 5 colors as well as appliers for Slink Visage and TMP Mesh Heads! A steal of a deal for a great FREE group gift (group is FREE to join!). The jewelry is was borrowed from the guy next to me… he didn’t look like he needed it. (Kidding!) But it is a current men’s gift set from Chop Zuey (group gift/350L to join) called Screaming Dead Men’s Choker and Ring and was easily resized to fit a lady.

Be sure to check out the Sim I visited! ROSSAVIK – Hell’s Gate Island is a zombie and steampunk with damage enabled and aliens, zombies, and tentacles abound for you to zap, shoot, stab or otherwise have fun attempting to battle! (It took me more than a few tries to get my pictures taken as I kept getting eaten!) — but it was loads of fun!

HUNT SL welcometosummeradjpgI do believe summer is here. It’s hot hot HOT… 103F forecast for my neck of the woods today. So yes, summer is here. It’s a good time to stay inside with the air conditioning, a cold drink, and your computer screen. In other words, a good time to do some hunting.

There are plenty of hunts to go on too, and lots of themes. Steampunk… check. Beaches… check. Pajamas… check… and lot’s more to choose from.

Both FabFree and HUNT SL have excellent pages if you want to get started with hunting. So read up before you exit through your front door.

So check out the list for the hunt that’s just right for you. Point and click the names for more info on each hunt.
