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!

Sizes Included

  • Classic mesh Sizes XXS-L

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.

Down in The Shire

The Elven Way

Hello there, Fabulous Readers.  Rip and I are popping in with a quick post featuring a fantastic outfit, which is perfect for role play.  The entire ensemble, from cape to boots, is all included in the prize for The Red Hunt from Feyline Fashions, and it only cost 10L.  The Red Hunt is in support of Team Diabetes of SL, an official and authorized team of the American Diabetes Association.  All proceeds from the hunt go directly to Team Diabetes of SL.  I have several family members in RL who suffer from diabetes, so I am happy to participate in this hunt and pay just 10L each for some fantastic prizes.

The Elven Way

Once I began wearing the different components of the Vashti Anduine outfit, I just knew I was going to wear some fantasy elf ears and head on over to The Shire for an extended visit.  The prize package includes everything I’m wearing in my picture from the necklace and cape right down to the high heel boots.  I love the pairing of deep red and dark blue along with the golden accents.   A collared cape and belly jewel are also tucked inside the box, but I opted not to wear them.  The generous designer included classic avatar versions as well as an Omega Applier, so there is something for everyone in this prize, and you get it all for just 10 Linden dollars.

What’s Included:

  • Omega Applier
  • Top
  • Sleeves
  • Body Veils
  • Cape and Collared Cape version
  • Collar
  • Belt
  • Chest Medallion
  • Necklace
  • Pants
  • Skirt
  • Boots (includes alpha layer and boot base)

Back Down the Hunt Trail We Go

The pupster and I are off to see what other Fabulous Finds we can come across on the trail of The Red Hunt.  We’ll be searching for the red and gray diabetes awareness ribbon.  The hunt, which features red items, runs through right through Diabetes Awareness Month, so you have until November 30th to scoop up some fabulous goodies and support a great cause.  Until next time, happy hunting!

What’s Your Fantasy?

FabFree: What's Your Fantasy?

Hello Fabulouses!  You may have noticed that I am having a real blast with the gacha sets at this round of Epiphany and I am back to share news about another one of my favourites!!

Kaithleen’s Fantasy Gacha Set

This stunning set is 75L per play with 22 commons and 3 rares, and the outfit that I put together consists of four commons and one rare.  You could easily mix and match these pieces and have a whole lot of fun putting together different looks, even if you just happened to play a few times and wound up with only commons!  While the sheer corsets are seductively inviting, my favourite piece in the set is the gold collar that is perfectly rigged.

If feathers don’t ruffle, nothing flies

FabFree: If feathers don't ruffle, nothing flies

Good evening FabFree Readers!  Tonight I am flying around the grid in Bluberry’s Lillith Gacha Set that is currently available at Epiphany, priced at 50L a play.

Lovely Lillith At Epiphany

In the photo above with my feathered friends, I am wearing four common pieces.

  • Dress – Blueberry Lillith Dress Common Nude (50L per play @ Epiphany)
  • Boots – Blueberry Lillith Boots Common Nude (50L per play @ Epiphany)
  • Wings – Blueberry Lillith Wings Common Nude (50L per play @ Epiphany)
  • Horns – Blueberry Lillith Head Dress Common #5 (50L per play @ Epiphany)

The black and white pieces are the rares, but I really liked the nude! As well as the components shown on my avatar, there are also tails, pitchforks, and even an exclusive riding fork as a reward for 25 plays.  I have included the vendor ad below so you can see the whole set.  I think the idea is to make a demon costume out of the set, but if you are creative you could make it into anything you wanted, and you know what?  Some of these items like the dresses and the black boots in particular would be great for every day wear too!

♥ GOOD LUCK ♥

If I Cannot Fly Let Me Sing

Green Finch & Linnet Bird
Hello Fab Free’rs! If you haven’t been to the current round of the Redeux Event, you need to go. This round will end in a few days and there are tons of free gifts. Each of the participating designers has a free gift set out. You’ll find clothing, and decor, and everything in between! All you need to do is join the free-to-join Redeux VIP group. Once you’re wearing your Redeux tag, you can click the gift bags at each booth and your free gift will be sent to you. So of course I picked a few I really liked to show you. It was actually really hard to pick just these four items, there are so many awesome gifts. I hope you like them as much as I do!

The Horns – Of course I picked horns as one of the free Redeux gifts to share with you! These pretty horns with the little flowers are by Evil in the Box. They come in 5 color variations and can be resized.

The Choker – This beaded choker with a cross charm by Vibes is beautifully detailed. It is their free gift at Redeux. The choker has resize scripts for easy fitting, and comes with a color change hud that lets you change various parts of the choker using several preset color choices.

The Dress – I know you can’t see the full dress in the photo, but this pretty teal gown by Faida is floor-length. I thought the yellow gold embellishment on the front made it look a bit regal. The dress is Faida’s free gift at Redeux. It comes in a single mesh size.

The Tattoos – Finally, the beautiful tattoos on Pru’s arms are the free Redeux gift from Iron & Rose.  They come in 3 variations, fresh, faded, and worn. Each one is a separate Omega Applier.

The Quasar

The Quasar

I really waffled over this post for the Quasar Hunt, My Dears.  I like to stay positive and up beat but I had a few banging my head on my desk moments while weeping “Where IS it!” with this Hunt. The prizes are awesome and the folks who organized it are fantastic. That said… this Hunt is not for the faint of heart. It’s kind of like the Twisted Hunt.  But… I know some of y’all really dig a challenge. And those who make it through are gonna be loaded with great prizes. So grab your HUD from Fallen gods, Inc. and get to hunting.

Quasars all around us

The minute I saw this gorgeous cocktail dress I knew, despite the challenge, I had to show it off. This is the ‘Nadya Cincher’ from {MV} and I’m in love. The detail in the fabric is stunning. And the modern style is so trendy. Nadya comes with a HUD to change both the bodice and the skirt separately. You get this deep blood red and six other jewel tone colors to play with. You can mix and match to your hearts content.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • SLink

Cat’s Meow

My cute little choker is from Blinsen & MaiTai and it’s also a Quasar prize. This is ‘Coraline’ and it does look a bit like the cat from the movie. The choker is unrigged and fully resizable. I was really impressed with the details even in the back where it ‘hooks’. Just beautifully made!

So if you like a crazy good challenge, check out the Quasar hunt from Fallen gods, Inc.!  Once you get the HUD, you be teleported to the first stop. each time you find a Quasar, you’ll be offered a teleport to the next stop. You’ll need to visit every merchant and locate every Quasar before you are teleported to the prize room to collect all the prizes. Be sure to join the group chat for the Hunt, everyone I met there was fun and friendly and a big help.
