Winter is Coming

Winter is Coming

Four more days. Winter will come for us in four…more…days. The days of Ice and Fire are almost here.

Can you tell, I am soooo excited to see the return of one of my favorite shows: Game of Thrones. I have so many questions. Will Jon discover his birth-right? Will Cersei die? Will Brienne fall into Tormund’s eager arms? I can hardly wait for the 14th!  At least I can play out my GoT dreams on the Grid while I’m waiting. And I get to do it with a giant new friend! All thanks to the Ice and Fire Event going on until April 13th. I made the rounds and played a ton of gachas but this outfit and my companion Dire wolf are my favorites.

The Garb

My blouse, corset and skirt are from the Luas “Ondina” 50L perplay gacha.  The blouse and skirt each come in five colors while the corset comes in either black or brown leather. There is also a fur stole to win that I didn’t get. The RARE is a gorgeous full dress or a set of accessories.

Sizes Included

  • Maitreya Exclusive

The Jewels

My gorgeous necklace is ‘Melisandra’ from !dM. There are nine colors of stones to win and each one allows you to customize the fit and the colors of the metals and settings. Plus, there are three styles of necklace to win.

The Wolf

Once again, Jinx has just really wowed me! The “Dire Wolves” gacha is just amazing! There are fifteen common ‘static’ poses and three RAREcompanions for your 75L perplay. I say “Static” because these wolves are Animesh. So the statics breathe and blink. Some even wag their tails. Of course, you do need an animesh enabled viewer to see the movements but it is well worth the update. My companions movements are smooth and so very realistic.

Petals on the wind

Petals on the wind

I was on a wander yesterday on a Hunt and I ended up over at the Springtime Harambee Charity Market. Now I thought… what’s a gorilla have to do with Spring? But I found out that “Harambee” means “Pulling Together” in Kenyon. I dug a little deeper and learned that the ‘pulling together’ harambee translates as is all peoples, regardless of race or language coming together for the good of all. It’s such a beautiful thought!

Petal Perfect

As I went around the little market, I couldn’t help but see all the free gifts set out by the venders. And when I saw the gift from Kastle Rock Couture I was so excited. As I expected, KRC has given us a truly lovely gown. This is the ‘Titania Gown’ in petal pink. You also get the beautiful head jewels too. The gown comes in two versions: one with a subtle glow and one without. Just the thing for wanders through the fantasy forests, don’t you think?

Sizes Included

  • Mesh Sizes XS-XL

A quick note… when you land, just follow the trail of blossoms to the Market!

Far beyond the Elysian Fields

Far beyond the Elysian Fields

Oh Twisted Hunt… How I hate to love you. You make me crazy… and yet I keep going.  How’s that for twisted behavior? The theme for this round of the Twisted Hunt is “Divine”. So everything is all about the old gods and the elysian fields.  So I flittered up to those fields beyond to romp with golden horses and try out my own wings.

Golden Divine

My Chiton – My first find is this lovely ‘Asphodel Chiton Tunic’ from The Dreaming Thicket. The prize cube includes both the female and male version of the gift. Both the prizes are beautiful and so very well made.

My Wings – I found these lovely wings in a side quest at Sweet Revolutions. The details are awesome and the wings are completely resizable and repositionable. Originally they were very small and set on the head, like Hermes. But it was so easy to make them larger and place them on my shoulders.

My Friend– The gorgeous guy at my side is the “Divine” horse from Awesome Breed Creations. Once you locate the cube, both this golden stallion and a golden mare are yours to roam with. Both horses are fully breedable and must be fed with food supplies from ABC. Be sure to read the enclosed ‘quick start’ Notecard if you are unfamiliar with Breedables or ABC Horses.

Sizes Included for the Tunic

  • Belleza
  • Fitmesh – XS-XL
  • Maitreya
  • SLink

Two if By Sea


Two if by Sea

Captain’s Log: The Nineteenth of March, Year Unknown
My Co-Captain and I set sail for an uncharted destination just a few days ago. Today, for the first time, we found land. Our steam ship ran aground in an unfamiliar location. Where, or even when our time travels have brought us, we cannot be certain. All that is certain is that we found our adventure, and we look absolutely smashing while doing so.

Hello Fab Free’rs! Welcome back to the blog, I promise you haven’t stumbled over a strange steam punk novella. I was just having a little fun with some of the fantastic Seam Hunt prizes my guy and I gathered. His hat, and our amazing jackets are free Seam Hunt prizes. In addition to the hunt freebies, I picked up an incredibly detailed free steam paddle boat that was just too cool to not share with you. I hope you enjoy these fabulous finds, and maybe even go on an adventure or two of your own.

The Hat – I think bowler style hats are really cool for steam punk attire. This particular Steam Hunt gift hat by Miss Darcy has some extra steamy details, both literally and figuratively. This cool hat has a “steam” effect that comes from the wheel handle on top of the hat when worn, not to mention the goggles which complete the look. You have until March 31st to hunt down the little brown cog and claim your free gift.

The Coat – I still cannot get over the gorgeous details of these tailcoats by Contraption. This coat comes in male and female mesh sizes, and includes a cummerbund applier, as well as a system layer cummerbund. Additionally there is a color change hud that lets you change the color of the ascot/scarf and the little pin in the center of the scarf. Lastly, each of the sizes has an additional “bound” option for a corseted look. The best part is that this highly detailed piece is Contraption’s free Steam Hunt prize.

Sizes Included: Belleza Freya, Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass, Slink Male, Signature (Geralt, Gianni), Belleza Jake

The Spirit of Adventure

The Steam Paddle Boat – Believe it or not this ultra cool vessel is not only completely free, it has full permissions. I stumbled across this awesome freebie while exploring sims. This free boat can be found at the Alpha Tribe sim. Simply pay the boat 0 linden and you’ll find a copy of it in the objects folder of your inventory. Along with being cool to look at, this steam paddle boat has some animated parts, and 2 sit poses. There is a single pose at the steering wheel, and one up top at the organ. Lastly, since this freebie has full permissions, you can customize it however you like.

P.S. If you dig Blue’s waxed mustache, it’s a freebie too! You can pick it up for free at Kauna. Afterall, dapper gentleman would be complete without one.

Here are the details, may you have happy adventures!

Weekend Warrior

Weekend Warrior

YAY! We made it to the weekend, FabFree! It’s time to play! Role play for me, please and thank you.  Especially since I found this great new very RP-y outfit from Wicca Original.

Hurry Hurry

In celebration of Wicca’s Wardrobe rebranding as Wicca Originals, there is a mini hunt going on in store. There are ten prizes to be found and all of them are awesome. I chose the Nemea outfit because it fits my Role Play warrior woman persona perfectly. Each piece of the outfit is in a separate prize box but that’s part of the fun of a hunt. In total, there are four outfits and two extra prizes of boots. You’ll need to join the Wicca Originals group to go on the Hunt and that group is free to join. The Hunt won’t last long so get going!

One Ring to Rule Them All

One Ring to Rule them All

Ok Fab Free, brace yourselves because I’m about to reveal the depth and breadth of my nerdiness.  I am a MASSIVE Lord of the Rings fan.  I mean, like…super huge.  And I’m NOT talking about the movies (which were visually stunning but messed my fave story up!).  I have probably read the books about 20 times, and I can recite all sorts of things upside down and backwards, while muttering something about potatoes being the Gaffer’s delight.  Yup, I’ve finally revealed my true self to you all.  Anyone who was under the illusion that I was cool, welcome to the real world!

The Quest for the One Ring

Right, so I did have a point in revealing my love for all things Middle Earth.  The Enchantment hunt is going down right now all over the grid, and you have to keep an eye out for the One Ring!  I found two super awesome things in my journeys – my very Elven (ish) lingerie (sized for Maitreya) by Have Unequal is the first.  I feel that it wouldn’t look completely out of place in Lothlorien…well, at least in certain situations it wouldn’t!  The second item is my lovely tumbling curls by DeLa that I’m sure Arwen would be totes jelly of.  Best of all, the prizes are all FREE so you can gather your Fellowship of friends together and hunt down all the precious rings!  You can find all the hunt info HERE.

As they say in Elvish, “Elen sila lumenn omentielvo” – a star shines on the hour of our meeting.
Yup, totally a nerd.

Shall We Dance, M’Lady?

A Night at the Ball

Hello there, Fabulouses! It’s not often that I opt to role play in SL, but Ripley happened to catch wind of fantastic his/her free matchy-matchy 18th century outfits that Stan and I just had to check out. If you are a role player in SL, these might be just up your alley! Each gift package includes everything you need from head to toe – all for free with no group join required!

For the Lady…

From wig and hat down to slippered feet, the ladies’ gift from St. Petersburg in SL/Chateau D’Esprit is a complete 18th century outfit perfect for a formal ball. I chose to wear just the gown, gloves, skirt, sleeves, bow and Sacque (kind of like a cape in back), but the gift folder also includes a color change wig, wrap, cap, stockings and slippers. I just love the frilly trim and lace as well as the generous hoop style skirt. I felt so elegant while wearing it! The best part of all was it was completely free and I didn’t have to join any group to pick it up!
Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic clothing layers (gloves, shoe base, stockings, top, underpants, underskirt, alpha layer)
  • Applier for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink
  • Omega Advanced Applier HUD
  • Sacque
  • Skirt
  • Right and left sleeves
  • Wig with color change HUD and hairbase
  • Cap
  • Slippers

And For the Gentlemen…

Although he grumbled about wearing a wig, I thought Stan looked dashing in his suit, which is a free gift from St. Petersburg in SL/Chateau D’Esprit. The men’s gift doesn’t have as many separate components like the ladies’ version, but it looks just as spectacular, and includes everything needed for a fantasy evening. From the powdered wig down to the buckled shoes, Stan was all set to go. He really appreciated the fact that he could throw all the clothing on with just one click. There was no need to mess around with adding different layers or separate clothing items. He simply had to decide to go with either the standard or no lace version of the suit and then add his wig. No fuss, no muss and then he was pacing, waiting for me to finish getting ready. Isn’t that the way it always goes? 😉

What’s Included:

  • M Suit
  • M Suit (no lace)
  • Alpha layer
  • Wig

We’re off to enjoy an evening of waltzing and role play. Until next time, happy shopping!

The Valkyrie

 

The Valkyrie
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! I had so much fun with this look, and it’s almost entirely gachas and group gifts. Sometimes my favorite part of Second Life really is just playing dress-up. I think Pru looks like a fearsome angelic warrior or a Valkyrie from Norse mythology. For details about each of the freebies and cheapies that make up this look just keep reading!

The Wings – These steampunk inspired wings by Rezology can be found on the Marketplace for just 1 linden. They are modifiable so they can be resized, recolored, and even moved around so the gears and such show on the outside of the wings rather than the inside.

The Tattoo – This group gift tattoo by This is Wrong is unisex. It is a fully body tattoo of intricate geometric lines. It reminds me a lot of art deco style line work. The gift includes several appliers for both male and female mesh bodies, and there are 3 color options. The This is Wrong group is just 50 linden to join.
Appliers Included: Female – Belleza/Maitreya, TMP, Slink / Male – Signature Gianni, Belleza Jake, TMP, Slink

The Bodysuit – This gorgeous detailed bodysuit is from the Bath’kol gacha set at Sweet Thing. It is the Rare item in the set. It includes a color change hud with preset options for different sections of the bodysuit. The Bath’kol gacha is 75 linden per play and can be found at the Sweet Thing store.

Bath'kol by Sweet Thing.

The Pose – The Pose Fair is in full swing and there are tons of free gifts. Special thanks to one of our readers Azure for mentioning the virtual truckload of freebies at this event! This particular pose is the free Pose Fair gift by posEd. It comes in a pose stand as well as just the pose alone. To get your copy of this dynamic pose, head over to the Pose Fair, and be sure to join the free group before clicking the gift box at the posEd booth.

Christmas Angel… of Frozen Death!!

Christmas Angel...of Frozen Death!!

 

Folks, I am feeling Fierce! Sometimes you just have to let your inner warrior elven queen out. Am I right??

Angel on the attack

This is the Gabriel set from Jinx and it’s awesome… and free! I was fortunate enough to pick up this set from Jinx’s Lucky Chairs over in the Group sandbox. It comes with everything you see… the body suit, the paldrons, the sheer coat, the moon staff and these amazing wings. It also comes with a pair of matching gladiator knee high heels I’m not wearing. The details in the wings and on the staff are just impeccable. The body suit, coat and shoes are all Classic Mesh sizes and even though I fussed, I wasn’t able to make the shoes work for my Maitreya feet. Shoes aside, I still love this outfit and I think it’s perfect for the RP closet!

Now, if y’all will excuse me… I’m going to go scare some innocent villagers!

Ultra Violet Imp

Ultra Violet
Hi There Fab Free’rs! I found some wickedly cute group gifts to share with you today. I had such fun dressing up, I hope you enjoy them too. Two of the group gifts I picked up are from a shop called Glutz. The third gift is from Slack Girl. Keep reading for all the info.

The Horns – First I want to tell you that there are tons of free group gifts out at Glutz. Some of them are for a furry body/head that I unfortunately know nothing about, but you might want to check that out! Also, the Glutz group is free to join. I picked up several of the group gifts myself. Among them are these cute ribbon wrapped horns. They include a color change hud that lets you pick from a few preset colors for the horns and the ribbon. They can also be easily resized to best suit your needs.

The Choker – Also at Glutz this cute necklace/choker is part of a gift set called Sovereign Scarlet gifts. The set is free to all Glutz group members, and as I mentioned above the Glutz group is free to join. It includes the necklace and a matching barrette which is not shown in the photo. I really like the little crystal details on this jewelry piece. There are no scripts in this item either, making it a low-lag accessory, and you can easily resize it using the edit menu.

The Manicure – Finally, I picked up one of many many group gifts out at Slack Girl. In fact, Slack Girl has an entire room of recent and past group gifts available. The Slack Girl group has a one time join fee of 150 linden. The gift I picked up is this pretty set of bento nails. They are an elongated coffin shape with several nude french tip color choices, and a black with white tips (shown), and a red color with white tips. I included a copy of the vendor ad below so you can get a better look at these beautiful nails. The set also comes with nails to fit each of the following hands: Maitreya, Slink, Vista, Eve, Belleza, Tonic, Tuty, and Altamura.
