The Evil Queen & The Good Queen

The Evil Queen

Throughout fantasy, fairy tales, and folklore the struggle between good and evil has always been at the heart of many tales. Two of the Recolors of Spring Hunt gifts at Apple May Designs hint at such stories, the Evil Queen dress, and the Good Queen dress. Inspired by the dresses at AMD and my own love of fantasy, I am excited to share with you an Evil Queen, and a Good Queen. I hope you like them as much as I do!

The Evil Queen’s dress is one of 4 female 1 linden Recolors of Spring Hunt prizes hidden around the Apple May Designs main location. I love that the dress has a fitted bodice and a short full skirt. In my opinion this silhouette is perfect for a fantasy look. The red and black fabric has a satin-like look to it, and I had no problem wearing this fully mesh dress with my Maitreya Lara body. The Evil Queen dress comes in standard sizes and includes a matching alpha layer.

Today only, Glam Affair has out a pack of three gorgeous skins for 50 lindens as their Fifty Linden Friday item. One of these skins I thought was perfect for my vision of the Evil Queen. The Sia skin in the India tone with her dark red lips is just stunning on and has the right combination of beauty and drama. Not as into this skin as I am? There’s bound to be one you will enjoy between the three tones (India, America, and Artic). Not to mention that at just 50 lindens for all 3, you kinda can’t go wrong!

Here are the Evil Queen’s Details, Enjoy!

The Good Queen

While I’m generally more inclined toward the darker fantasy characters, I have to admit I love this interpretation of the Good Queen. I envisioned something a little ethereal and I think I achieved such a look. I hope you love it!

Just like the Evil Queen, the Good Queen’s dress is a 1 linden RSH prize at Apple May Designs. This version is a beautiful white material with the same satin-like look and faint pattern of the black and red Evil Queen version. These dresses really are lovely on. For some diversity (and because I had the right skin appliers) I wore my Slink Physique body with the dress, and again had no issue. This dress also comes in standard sizes and can be worn using the provided alpha layer.

Additionally, I picked up some gorgeous past group gifts at NSP Florals. There are many gifts still available at NSP Florals, one of which is this enchanting Lady Gwynevere headdress in Sublime Mint. The headdress is a past FREE group gift that can still be found in the NSP Florals/MUSE VIP Room. The NSP Florals group is just 75 lindens to join, and you gain instant access to all the available gifts. Another beautiful FREE gift at NSP Florals are these lovely heels. Called the Peony Stilettos, these fantastic shoes are meant to be worn with Slink High feet. Also, they can be worn with or without the flower and crystal embellishment. Again, you’re able to get the shoes and the headdress at NSP Florals with just one group join fee of 75 lindens, not to mention the slew of other equally awesome gifts!

Here are the details for the Good Queen, Enjoy!

The Mermaid

The Mermaid

Hi there Fab Free! I had so much fun styling this look that I’m just going to get right to it and tell you all about it. This “Ocean” toned skin from PixyStix is truly gorgeous on, I love looking at it. It also kind of reminds me of blue raspberry kool-aid, which is awesome! This fantasy skin is the FREE Hunt for Your Inner Slut prize at PixyStix. As always, Pixy was very generous with this gift, included with this skin are appliers for just about everything out there. Seriously, tons of appliers.

I’ve always liked the idea of mixing genres and styles to create a more unique look. I love mixing vintage and modern styles for example. This time I went with the fantasy look of the skin from PixyStix and added some modern clothing from Apple May Designs, and the jewelry is somewhere in between. AMD is participating in the Recolors of Spring Hunt. The hunt is a dollarbie hunt and there are several items in the AMD store. This silver metallic bandeau style top and matching skirt set is just one of the four total gifts for women. There are also two hunt prizes for the men. For just one linden this outfit is a steal! You can also find this dress in gold, and I am happy to tell you that this RSH prize includes several appliers, or it can be worn on regular system layers. Happy Hunting!

Lastly, what modern mermaid would be complete without a kick-butt mani/pedi? Today is the last day of the current round of The Dressing Room Fusion. ZOZ has a set pretty shiny nails meant for Slink hands/feet in 3 colors for just 70 lindens per color. These are specifically meant to show off the cool feature of the most recent slink update, you can put a different nail pattern on each individual nail. Can’t make it out to TDRF in time? Not to worry, the sets will be available at the ZOZ main store at full price after TDRF ends.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

The Lady and the Thief

Hello again, FabFolks.  I spent a very pleasant afternoon on the Hunt today and found two things I think you’ll like. I picked the Autism Awareness Hunt   because I have two godsons on the spectrum. So this Hunt is for them!

The Lady and the Thief

C&N Designs is, as y’all know, one of our FabFree Designers and these two Hunt prizes will show you why we’re so excited they are.  First up is the ‘Isabell’ dress in green. I love this gown. The color, the soft floral and the long sleeves almost like wings, all just lovely. You even get the matching necklace.

The Lady and the Thief

This is the men’s prize from C&N Designs, the ‘Thief’ part of our title. Again, C&N has given us a beautiful build as well as a good looking outfit. The boots, the bracers and the belt are all resizable to get that perfect fit.  Since the men’s prize was so nifty, I thought this would be a good time to introduce y’all to Gabriel, my MAlt.  Because sometimes… ya need to indulge the animus.

 

The Autism Awareness Hunt runs until April 30th and will only cost you…0L per prize!

25L Tuesday Finds

Gotta get this one posted fast, FabFree Folks! 25L Tuesdays only last… well, Tuesday!

25_001

This is the ‘Helena’ gown in purple from Teriotrope. Not only isit a gorgeous build, it comes in seven mesh sizes for those of us who don’t quite fit the standards! Plus it comes in a plethora of other colors if purple isn’t your favorite.  I’m also wearing a cool new ‘vampire’ skin from Bite and Claw. This is ‘Lillith’ in Innocence. I love the details of the veins and the subtle color changes. The skin doesn’t come with any appliers but you can pick those up at the main store. It does, however come with a set of fangs and the Lillieth shape.

25_004

25L Tuesday begins at 12:00 am and ends at 11:59 pm SLTime on Tuesday. You can join their update group and get a notecard with the participating merchants and the SLurls by searching in SL for “25L Tuesdays Connection” or copy/paste this in Second Life Chat ->  secondlife:///app/group/38f6de2d-4cf7-ff99-34f6-fe3c3eb0e695/about
