Candy Girl

Hello again, my sweet FabFree Folks! Today I’m all about candy!  You guessed it! The Candy Fair is open and in full swing and there are some super sweet gachas to be had.

candy_001

This is the ‘Candy Top and Skirt’ set in Sky from the ‘Sweet Candy Look’ gacha by Dami. This set is a little different in that the top and the skirt are one piece. But that makes for easy dressing and it is nice to get a set for the price of one play.  My handful of balloons are from the Dami gacha as well. They come in this shades of pink set and a rainbow colored set too.  Even my choker is from the Dami gacha. Can you tell I really liked that machine? ;)

I also spent some time with  [CX] gacha for these cute ‘Mallow Horns’. I love horns an antlers and I have a pretty big collection. But these are too cute to miss and so unusual. And at only 50L per play you can’t go wrong.

The Candy Fair only runs until July 17th so don’t delay! Your taxi to the Candy Fair!

Silks and a New Face Save the Faery Queen

When I was a child I was terrified of the tooth-fairy — and of fairies in general actually. I remember other children dressing up as fairy princesses for Halloween, and all I could think of was how deceived they all were! Fairies were horrible, malevolent creatures that stole your teeth and made you stay a child forever! (Wasn’t that what Tinkerbell did to Peter Pan?!) I could certainly think of nothing worse!

5 July 2015 [1]

In fact, my fear of fairies never really went away until I became an adult. And interestingly enough… it turned from fear to something akin to a malevolent dislike. I saw them as creatures of deceit and even in lore, they really are.

In traditional Irish Lore, the word “Faerie” comes from the word “fay,” which is related directly to the Fates — and some believed they were women who influenced and overlooked the births and lives of men… and not always in very nice ways (obviously). Those who upset the fair folk, were said to be doomed to suffer eternal bad luck unless they made it right by the fairy they had had the misfortune of angering.

But fairies, of course, come in many shapes and sizes… and can be good or evil (though even both the good and the bad can be equally capricious according to ancient lore) and in the traditional lore all fairies were very powerful.

So is it any great surprise, that so many in Second life would wish to recreate the magical look of the fair folk for themselves? I think not! And this week, I give you a chance to do it without having to steal from the winged ones themselves!

The first thing you need is the outfit I am wearing. Because no self-respecting Queen of the Fairies would be caught without first-rate attire! So head to ~Soedara! Once there, join the group (don’t worry it’s FREE) and look for the teleport to the gift area.

There are actually quite a few very nice gifts in ~Soedara!‘s FREE area, but the one I picked up for my look in these pictures is called the Precious Haifa Silk. When you enter the FREE area, you’ll find the gifts in Vendors. You must wear the ~Soedara! group tag to get the vendors to work. You do have to pay the vendors 1L to get your items, but they will immediately refund your 1L back to you — thus making your item a FREE gift. You may find yourself there for a while going through all the choices! There are many beautiful gifts to be had!

And if a picture is worth a thousand words and the eyes are the window to the soul… then your last stop should definitely be New Faces skin store for their FREE gifts. New Faces seems to be a secret saved among friends and it’s one worth sharing. The group is FREE to join and there are currently three FREE group gifts available. I am wearing their current gift skin called Lorna as well as this beautiful eye make-up called Erotica (there are several shades in the make up pack but I chose blue) and both are currently up in the store as FREE gifts. She has all the appliers you need if you use mesh bodies and attachments and at very reasonable prices.

One of the things that really impresses me about New Faces is the detail put into the realism of the skins. These are not “Barbie Doll” skins. Though her line is still small compared to some of the larger more well known designers, she has a couple of ethnic skins available, and many of her skins feature (purposeful) ‘flaws’ such as moles or irregularities on the bodies (such as tiny vein markings and/or bone shadows). There are other realistic details on the bodies that are just too many too mention.

I spoke to the designer myself a few months ago (long before I was a FabFree blogger for her to have any reason to treat me as just another customer) and she mentioned that she is considering a men’s line at some point in the future (so cross your fingers gentlemen!). I can’t say enough about her with regards to customer service and courtesy. Hands down she was helpful, polite, and personable. And there were others in the store, and I watched her treat each of them with the same courtesy. I look for this lady to be up and coming!

No more yielding than a dream

Happy Friday FabFree Folks! And it’s a  happy Friday indeed with the huge Midsummer Night’s Dream Hunt in full swing!

MidSummer_001

This really is a huge Hunt: one hundred and four stops! The stops are organized into six paths, each named for a character in the play. So I know you can find something you love. I found so many things I had trouble picking what I wanted to show. I know, I know… such a problem to have…

This is the hunt prize for Bad Revenge. You get the lovely asymmetrical dress, the flowers for your waist and the flower crown. The build is spot on and moves beautifully. Bad Revenge is definitely a shop I will be returning to with this example of their work. My earrings are also a Hunt prize today. These are the ‘Wishing Star’ earrings from The Kandi Store. You also get a matching nose ring in the prize.

MidSummer_002

The 1L per prize Midsummer Night’s Dream Hunt runs until July 21 but with one hundred and four stops… y’all better get going!

Cheering the Red,White, and Blue!

Hello FabFree Folks and welcome to July! Can you believe it’s half way through 2015? Anyway, as y’all know, I live here in the States in RL and we are coming quickly up on our big American holiday: Independence Day!

MrsB4rth_001

For me and my family, the first week of July is one big party! Fireworks, cook out and block parties are everywhere! Mrs. B’s Designs is helping me celebrate this year with the super cute patriotic ‘Americana Sundress’. Isn’t this adorable!? I look like one of Captain America’s dancers in the first movie! You can pick up this sundress right now on the Marketplace or in the main store ( go to the store… there’s a ton of cute things to peruse) for just 50L. That’s 1L per State! But this special price is only until the 4th of July so hurry over.

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!

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.”

                                                   ~ Lewis Carroll, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland

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!
