Speaking of Fae…

Fairy_001

Not long ago, I visited the Redeux event and showed off one of the free gifts I picked up in a post [here]. I’ve been unpacking boxes ever since. There are so many gifts that it seems I’ll be unpacking boxes for months! Luckily I managed to narrow down my findings to a few special ones to share with you. It’s not secret that I love roleplay and fantasy looks, so I was excited to put together a roleplay look for you. I helped it along with a group gift from a special store that you’ll want to pick up.

So versatile…

I stopped by Silvan Moon Designs to pick up the April Gift and discovered that the gift this month is really versatile. This little dress is a casual style that you could wear as a Boho dress if you were out-of-character, or you could doll it up with accessories to make a fae as I have done, or it has just enough of a traveler feel to create a gypsy. There are so many possibilities! The Silvan Moon Designs group has a one-time join fee of 500L, but you will get a quality gift each month to more than make up for the fee. This dress comes in sizes to fit Maitreya, Slink Original, and Slink Hourglass bodies.

Speaking of Fae…

So you know I revisited Redeux. I picked up my wings from Poet’s Heart. They are a beautiful pearlized shade of purple, draped in pearls. They include a color change hud for the pearls too! This is a free gift with your Redeux tag, and the Redeux gift is free to join.

What else?

What else did I get? I also nabbed some stone textures. A package of 18 really terrific ones to be exact. To get these, stop by the Timeless textures booth at Redeux and pick up the free gift there. You can see an example of one of the great looking textures behind me in these pictures.

Oh and one more thing…

I LOVE this necklace by Steelhead Outfitters. It fits perfectly and is another free gift from Redeux. This is another one of those gifts that is perfect for roleplay or everyday wear either one. It also includes a color change hud that allows you to change the color of the cord and the circular pendant both separately for lots of versatility! And don’t forget that it’s free!

Pearl_001

Inspired…

Kat got all dolled up for a date night out and I was inspired to do the same, though I took my own spin on things since of course Kat and I have different styles. I found a couple of hunt items at Glitzz and also stopped by Redeux, which has just opened up and will be open until the 21st, to pick up free gifts!

Getting ready…

My dress from Glitzz, which could double as lingerie, includes panties and comes in a beautiful pearlized blue color with a lace hem and neckline and pearl shoulder straps. It’s sexy al la mode for sure. It only comes in Maitreya and Hourglass, but you might be able to do some fiddling to get it to fit your body type if you tried. For the price of 1L as part of the Honey Funny Bunny Hunt, it’s worth trying it out to see if this sexy number will fit your mesh body. It fit my Maitreya body like a perfect glove.

The choker.

My choker is a diamond masterpiece set in a gold setting. There is an included hud which allows you to change the setting to silver. There are two different chokers in the gift box … an unscripted version that is simply a pretty choker/necklace, and an open collar rlv version for those who want some adult risky play. This choker is a gift from Glitzz as part of the Evil Bunny Hunt and will only cost you 1L and a little hunting time.

Final Touches.

I wanted to add a little “sexy mystery” to my look and I found it at Redeux. This is the anniversary round, so not only are there lots of 25L items, 50% off items, and low price gachas, but there are also many many amazing free gifts. I picked up this lace mask by Viki with my free to join Redeux tag. There were free gifts at every booth though, so hurry over before the event ends on April 21st!

Mask appliers available:

  • Lelutka
  • Omega

Your Own Underdark!

In the dark_001

Your own Underdark…

It’s not often you get the chance to own your own Underdark, especially for the price of just 1L. Zyn is offering their Mini Underdark Skybox on the Marketplace for just that! 1L and it’s yours. It’s only 47 prim and it’s rather detailed, with multiple cavern rooms, a water pool, stalagmites and stalactites, mushrooms, lanterns, and more. The picture above is taken in part of one of the detailed caverns!

Ahhhh roleplay…

Roleplay is one of those fantastic past-times in Second Life and it’s always fabulous when you can come across some great gifts to add to your wardrobe. I stopped by the Menstuff lounge and there is a large assortment of menswear currently out that you can pick up for your one-time fee of 50L to the Menstuff group. Among the items was this “Morris” outfit. It’s really just a regular every day outfit, but since it doesn’t have any zippers and with the right accessories, I managed to turn it into a medieval one! It comes in a variety of mesh body sizes.

Outfit sizes available:

  • Classic XS-XL + alpha
  • Belleza
  • Gianni
  • Slink
  • TMP
  • Aesthetic

The details make the man

It’s the details that make this outfit work as a roleplay outfit. I stopped by Noble Creations and picked up some “details” to make this into a roleplay creation. The Noble Creations group is free to join and these gifts were free to pick up. I picked up the Prince in Leather neck piece to add over the top of the Morris shirt. I also picked up the Medici Pouch belt to add to my waist. Take note… this belt fit a little funny at first. I had to edit it to my shape, but it comes with a handy resizer that allows for resizing on all axises separately for a perfect fit!

The L’Homme Gift.

I think the L’Homme group gift from Noble Creations really makes this outfit. It’s a set of horned Bracers and Pauldrons that really stand out. You could add some weapons to this outfit to complete your look. Perhaps a shield and an axe or a sword and you’d be ready to go warrior! As always, the L’Homme group is free to join so this gift is free as well!

Happy roleplaying!

A Little Sci-Fi

Deep Space_001

If you like a little Sci-fi, I might be able to point you in the right direction. The latest group gift at Prey for men has a Science Fiction feel to it that would make it ideal for roleplay, though I’m sure you could get away with it for every day Gothic wear as well.

This outfit comes in several separate pieces… you get the pants, top, and shoulder metals all as individual pieces that can be worn separately or together depending on the look you want. It only comes in standard mesh sizes, but I didn’t have any trouble using alphas to get it to fit my Slink mesh body.

Pick this outfit up free with your free group join at the Prey mainstore in the men’s department.

Steam Punk Nyne

Steam Punk Nyne_001

I always love it when I can bring you free or cheap roleplay styles to add to your wardrobe. So cheers to bringing you an inexpensive look today! This one you can add to your Steampunk drawer!

The look…

This look comes courtesy of Prism Designs and is part of the Steam Hunt. It only comes in Classic Mesh sizes, but it is well worth adjusting your body to fit it, or using those mesh alpha hiders to catch any stray body parts if you must! The outfit includes a mini top hat and steampunk goggles! I love every part of it! I paired it with some color change boots from Pure Poison and I was ready to go! Like all of the gifts that are part of the Steam Hunt, this gift was free and only cost me a little hunting time.

More Hair.

As I mentioned in my post [Here], I discovered Nyne with a friend and its plethora of free gift hairstyles. I’m sporting off the newest free group gift in the picture above. I love how the color change hud includes streaks options so that you can get multicolor looks! Just don your free to join Nyne group tag and pick up the group gift free!

Dreams of Flying

Dream of Flying
Hi There Fab Free! I have something a little different to help brighten your week. The iridescent harness style lingerie is a new Lucky Letter board prize at Moon Amore. I had fun pairing it with the group gift horns from Cubic Cherry. I think the end result is both sweet and sensual. I hope you like it as much as I do!

The Lingerie – I love this unique lingerie set from Moon Amore. I think that even with the influx of harnesses and harness inspired fashion, this stands out. The set has a separate top and bottom so you could wear the pieces alone as well as together. This Lucky Letter board prize also has a color change hud that lets you choose pink, yellow, or blue (shown) for the base color of the iridescent straps. Also, the set is in a single mesh size. The Moon Amore group has a one time join fee of 30 linden and is required to win the Lucky Letter prizes.

The Horns – These cute down-turned horns are a recent group gift from Cubic Cherry. They come with a color change hud with 6 fun candy colors. The Cubic Cherry group has a one time join fee of 66 linden. There are several group gifts available at Cubic Cherry in addition to these fun interesting horns.

Here are the details, enjoy!

Spliced

Meow
Hello meow meow hello Fab Free’rs! haha I hope you’re all having a fine Saturday. I’ve been feeling inspired recently and this group gift tattoo from Immodest brought out the feline side of my personality. I don’t have an answer as to why, except that there’s something primal about this tribal-inspired tattoo. To help complete this lazy feline weekend look, I also picked up this group gift lingerie set from NyDesign.

The Tattoo – The unisex tattoo Pru is proudly showing off is a group gift at Immodest. The group is just 30 linden to join and there are a few group gifts currently available. The Splice tattoo comes in the black version shown and a white version. There are also Omega head appliers, which I did not use in the photo. To get your copy of this tattoo gift, head to Immodest, and make your way through the awesomely unique Immodest store setting to the upper left part of the store.
Appliers Included: Omega, Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, Signature

The Lingerie – The slightly lifted top and matching panties are a current FREE group gift at NyDesign. The set includes a color change hud with 6 color variations, each with 3 texture options, the solid one shown, a sheer version, and a semi-sheer heart lace option. The tank top and panties can be worn together or separately and the hud allows you to choose their color/texture separately also. The NyDesign group is FREE to join and there are other group gifts also available.
Mesh Sizes Included: Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), Maitreya Lara, TMP, Slink (Hourglass, Physique)

Here are the details, enjoy!

What’s in a cemetery?

Graveyard Presence_001

“What could you possibly hope to find in a cemetery?” The women said. “The dead tell no secrets and the living seldom come to visit them.”
― Felix Alexander, The Last Valentine

Many of my characters have roleplayed in cemeteries for various reasons. There is mystery and intrigue there. There is always a story to be had in a cemetery! Or someone’s story at least. When I put this roleplay outfit together for you, I immediately though… cemetery! And went to take a picture. But enough of the roleplay memories and onto the gifts!

Stop by for a treat!

Bluemoon Enterprise has out a great free roleplay outfit for February. Be sure to pick it up before the month is out. You’ll need the free to join Bluemoon group tag to pick it up. This Celtic Breeze outfit includes the pants, a skirt, the bracers, the top and the hood. The hood has a feature that allows you to wear it either up or down (I choose to wear the hood down) and the outfit comes in a single fitmesh size that I had no trouble making fit my Maitreya body.

Bluemoon Enterprise is housed inside of The White Armory. When you arrive at the entrance, go inside and then head to the Bluemoon store inside the large main-store building of The White Armory. You’ll find the Celtic Breeze gift inside of the smaller Bluemoon Building.

Another YM Gift

I showed you a group gift from the YM Shop in my post [Here] but there were so many on the wall that I picked up more than one. Among the free gifts I picked up with my free group join were the Beka boots. I discovered that these boots, although certainly suitable for modern wear, had a definite roleplay feel, and paired with my roleplay outfit from Bluemoon just perfectly.

  • These boots include a color change hud to change 4 different parts of the boots with 46 color options for each as well as 4 metal options for the rivets.
  • Sizes include: Slink Physique, Slink Hourglass, Mesh XXS – L

I hope you enjoy these gifts and happy roleplaying!

It’s A Gift

A Gift
Hellooo Fab Free’rs! Recently I’ve found myself inspired by a blast from my days as a role player. I’d almost forgotten how much fun it is to add some fantasy and perhaps even a little darkness into the looks I create.  So today I have two new group gifts to share with you, one from Cureless, and one from Dirty Princess. This look also incorporates several previous group gifts, most of which are still available!

The Heart – I come baring a gift! Don’t worry, this heart isn’t mine. It’s a recent group gift at Cureless. This anatomical heart is a prop for the pose shown, and there is a second heart with this gift that has a similar hold pose. Also there is a color change hud so you can pick between 6 preset colors. Also, the moon bindi, and cat eyes are previous Cureless group gifts that are still available! The Cureless group is 50 linden to join.

The Lingerie – This pretty pink lingerie is a FREE group gift at Dirty Princess. In honor of Valentine’s Day they set out this cute little set. It really is very cute on! It comes in a single mesh size, and in the pink color shown only. The Dirty Princess group is FREE to join. Also, please keep in mind that the windlight setting I used for my photo (Fairy warm pinks Paulina) gives a pink hued light. So the lingerie is a slightly different shade of pink than shown. I really think you’ll love it, if you’re into pink!

Here are the details, enjoy!
