An Enchanting Blue Fairy

The Blue Fairy

Hello There Fab Free’rs! I hope all is well in your world. Right now my world is made up of fantastic fairy fabulousness thanks to the Enchantment Hunt. The May round of Enchantment is Thumbelina themed, and the shops participating in the Hunt part of the event are making all my fairy dreams come true! Even better, the Hunt gifts are all absolutely FREE. Additionally, Plastik recently sent out this gorgeous fantasy skin with male and female options and all the appliers for all the meshy things you could possibly imagine (okay most of them) as a FREE gift to their VIP group. You’re gonna want this one! Also, at the very end of the post I have a little something from Catwa that I want to tell you about. I bet you can guess what it is!

First, if you’ve never done an Enchantment Hunt before, this is a hud hunt. You can pick up a FREE hud at the Enchantment Event or at any of the participating shops. Once you attach the hud you’ll be asked to give it permission to teleport your avatar. Say yes! Then click on a shop logo to be instantly teleported to that location. You’ll also get a hunt hint in your local chat. You must be wearing the hud when you find the hunt object (an open book) and click it. The Enchantment Hunt object will not send you the gift without the Enchantment Hunt hud attached.Blue Fairy Close Since there are so many lovely Enchantment Hunt Freebies, I’ll start from the top. This crown of dainty, highly detailed hair flowers from NSP Florals is simply beautiful. This FREE hunt gift is sizable and can be easily positioned. Not to mention that hair flowers are an essential part of a fairy’s wardrobe, so you won’t want to miss these!

No fairy would be complete without a set of pretty gossamer wings! These delicate wings are the FREE Enchantment Hunt prize at Le Poppycock. The wings are static, and include several color versions, each in an open or closed position.

Next, this lace one-piece lingerie is the FREE Enchantment Hunt Prize at Blacklace. Blacklace is known for their beautiful lingerie, and this gift is no exception. Not only is this gift beautiful, it generously includes appliers for omega compatible bodies as well as classic system layers in several equally pretty colors.

The next to last stop on the Enchantment Hunt for this post is Essenz. These mint colored strappy flats are just too cute! These are easily the perfect fair footwear. This FREE hunt prize includes a Maitreya fit, and a Slink Flat fit. All fairy-ness aside, these sandals are a great addition to any summer wardrobe.

Finally, how cute is the pose used in the top photo? I love the whimsical look of the stance. This is one of 3 poses that are the Enchantment Hunt prize at Elephante Poses. Each of the 3 static poses have the same whimsical fairy quality to them. You’ll definitely want to add these FREE poses to your collection!

Now that I have shared a small sample of the Enchantment Hunt gifts to be had (I’ll show more in my next post), I want to talk about this incredible skin. Just recently Plastik gained 1000 Facebook likes/followers and to show her appreciation, the designer sent out this skin to her VIP group. This FREE gift comes in a male and female version and includes classic system layers along with appliers for every mesh body part you might imagine. I love the added detail of the almost iridescent looking stripes. They really give this skin an otherworldly look. In addition to the applier options, you also have the choice of freckles or no freckles.  At this time The Plastik group is FREE to join, and you’ll find this awesomely generous gift in the past group notices.

Lastly, I know this has been an unusually long post for me, but I have one more thing I want to share with you. Catwa has just released a static mesh head called Nicki, and it is for sale now for just 100 lindens. Yes, this is above and beyond the 75 lindens we usually stick to, however if you’re a Catwa group member you will get 30 lindens in store credit for purchasing the head. This brings that 100 linden cost to just 70 lindens in a round about way. Aside from being static (no blinking, no facial expressions) this pretty face has all the same functions as any other Catwa mesh head. Currently the Catwa group is FREE to join, so don’t forget to join the group and wear your group tag to get the store credit when purchasing the Nicki head.

Here are the Details, Enjoy!

More Gifts Right Meow

Meow Meow

Hello again Fab Free’rs! I’m back with a few more gifts from the current round of The Instruments, and a fun group gift from SlackGirl. I’m certain I’ve mentioned in previous blogs of mine that I started out my Second Life as a Neko, and though I don’t often wear ears and a tail these days, it’s still one of my favorite “styles” for lack of a better word when I’m feeling cute and playful.

The phrase “cute and playful” definitely fits the gift from BYRNE at The Instruments. The mesh jacket and tie combination is a FREE gift that comes with 3 versions. Pru is wearing the “original” version as named in the gift. Each version has a color variation of this fun fabric. I love how whimsical it looks with the splashes of color and mesmerizing curved lines. It definitely makes me think of something hand painted and high fashion.

Meow Close Meow

Also at The Instruments for FREE is this lovely collar from Indulge Temptation. The collar is fully scripted, however I’ll be honest I am not entirely familiar with collar scripts, and so I’m not going to begin to explain what the scripts do. LOL Some of the options appear to be for basic things like re-sizing, while others are lifestyle related. Either way, the collar is adorable on, and I personally am content to wear it as a pretty accessory. Additionally, these gorgeous nails are also a FREE gift at The Instruments. This gorgeous gold-tipped polish set is from Alme, and it includes 3 variations, including grey, and a black version. The applier set will work for Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, and Omega compatible nails.

Finally, I mentioned a gift from SlackGirl, and you guessed it, it’s the beautifully done kitty face! This pretty kitty makeup is a full face applier Group Gift from SlackGirl. The gift includes an applier for Catwa heads, an applier for Omega compatible heads, and a classic makeup layer. To get this gift you’ll need to join the SlackGirl group, which carries a one time fee of 100 lindens. You’ll find this gift along with many others on a wall just inside the SlackGirl entrance.

Here are the details, I hope you enjoy this playful Neko look!

That Touch of Pink

That Touch of Pink

Hi Fab Free’rs I hope you had a great weekend and a good start to the week so far. Also to those who’ve celebrated Mother’s Day or are celebrating today, Happy Mother’s Day!! Today I am excited to share this cute almost bubble goth style look with you. You can get this entire outfit including the dress, shoes, ring, and the mani/pedi for just 75 linden. Like always I tell you specifically how, and where in the details below. I hope you enjoy this look. Pink may not always be my go-to color but I definitely love it as an accent color. I personally really love the way this outfit turned out.
That Touch of Pink Close

Usually I’d start from the top and end with the shoes. Tonight I’m going to start by telling you about these fantastic FREE shoes from Empire. Recently Empire put up 6 lucky boards at their main store. Each board has a specific pair of shoes in a single lucky board only color. That’s right, not only are these shoes FREE, they are in an exclusive color for that shoe style. There is a group tag needed to play these lucky boards, however, it’s a FREE-to-join Empire Updates group. This group is separate from the Empire VIP group that allows you to claim group gifts. The group joiner for the FREE Empire Updates group is located just under the lucky boards. Definitely make sure you’re joining the right group. The shoes Pru is wearing for this look are just 1 of the 6 pairs. Additionally, each pair of shoes comes in several sizes/fits for specific mesh feet. If you ask me they are definitely worth stalking the lucky boards for!

Next,  I picked up this beautiful ring and the simple yet classic manicure/pedicure at SWANK for FREE. The ring is a beautiful statement abalone ring. I have always loved abalone in jewelry. The shell has beautiful swirls of green and blue with hints of pink and violet. I think it’s not only a beautiful piece, but versatile as well. You could wear it with anything and it would look amazing! This particular FREE gift at SWANK is from Vintage Touch. Also at SWANK is this undeniably classic white french tip manicure/pedicure set from Tashi. This gift is FREE as well, and includes appliers for Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, and Omega nails in several “nude” tones. Everyone  should have a simple white french-tip manicure in their inventory.

Now for the dress! This sweet little black dress from Apple May Designs has  a lot of simple charm. The sweetheart cut to the top and the extra wide flare to the skirt gives the dress a doll-like look. One of the best features of the dress is the thin belt. Included with this dress from Apple May Designs is a color-change hud that allows you to choose between several pastel colors for the belt. You can purchase this dress on the Marketplace from Apple May Designs for just 75 lindens as their Buy Now offer.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Tennis Anyone?

Tennis anyone? I put together an outfit that made me feel like going out on the courts today!

Tennis Anyone? 2

I have to say, I am loving the gifts at this round of FaMESHed! I picked up a few that I think you’ll definitely want to add to your wardrobe. These items have a luxury sports feel to them that are perfect for that “country club tennis court” look. Best part is… all these gifts are FREE! Just join the FaMESHed Group and click the boxes at the booths.

I picked up my fat pack of amazing locks at Damselfly. This style is called Francie, and if you pick up this FREE gift, you get every color available in the gift.

My earrings are the luxury earrings gift from the Noche display, and I also picked up these great sunglasses from Kitja. The sunglasses gift come in silver or gold. Both of these accessories, like the hair, are FREE gifts.

Tennis Anyone?

The last (but not least) item I am showing you is this sporty looking V-neck dress from Coco Designs. It comes in all the standard sizes as well as fitmesh and Maitreya. It too is a FREE FaMESHed gift.

My hard earned trip to Fameshed early on had won me a fabulous shirt for men which I showed you HERE, but I wanted to make sure that I didn’t neglect to mention this fabulous suit by Kauna that is also being given at the event as an anniversary gift FREE.

This suit is the full kit and caboodle and comes in fits for standard avatars as well as Slink and TMP. You’ll be getting the pants with attached belt, a waistcoat (not shown), the lavender shirt which comes in four versions (various tucked in and untucked versions, as well as different sleeve cuff versions), plus the jacket. The fit and movement of the suit is superb. You’ll need to join the FREE Fameshed group and stop by the Kauna booth and click the box to pick up this outstanding FREE gift. If you want to avoid the crowds, don’t stress, you’ll have until May 27th.

In Essenz

Snapshot_003Hello Fabulouses, and Happy Mother’s Day:).

Today I am stopping in to show off a couple of the many, many free group gifts you can pick up during this 4th Anniversary round of FaMESHed!  In my photo, you can see me wearing the Coquet August Halter Dress in Navy which comes in XXS – L mesh sizes, along with the Essenz Gambia Sandals in Cognac.  The Gambia Sandals are compatible with Slink (Physique and Hourglass) and Maitreya mesh bodies.

All you need to do is join the free to join FaMESHed inworld group and touch the boxes on the ground by the participating vendors, which is most of them!  It is a bit tough to get in still, but as the event goes on throughout the month it will get easier to TP in there and snag your swag!

Jump the Fence

Jump the Fence

It wasn’t easy getting past the crowds to get into this round of Fameshed, but it was worth it! Have you heard the news? It’s Fameshed‘s 4th anniversary, and that means gifts! Thankfully, creators have generously remembered us menfolk!

I was able to pick up a couple of really outstanding gifts I wanted to share with you. You’ll have plenty of time to jump to Fameshed later if you don’t want to fight the crowds just yet, as it will be running until May 27th.

I picked up this really fantastic mesh shirt in all the standard sizes by etham called “Patrick Jumper” as the first FREE gift I wanted to share with you. You do need to wear the Fameshed group tag, but the group is FREE to join, so you just need a free group slot. This shirt is of excellent quality and make, and worth putting in your inventory.

I also grabbed this fence you see behind me. It too is a FREE gift at Fameshed being offered by Di’Cor. There are two parts in the gift, the straight links, and a corner link, so you can make a fence to suit your needs. Each piece is 4 prim, and when two are linked they add up to 7 (instead of 8). They are high detail mesh.
