Lady in the Shadows


Lady in the Shadows

I don’t know about y’all but I’m more than ready for the weekend! All the good Halloween parties are happening this weekend both in RL and on the Grid. Now I can’t help you with the RL parties but I think I’ve got you covered for the Grid Parties.

Lady in the Shadows

I probably could have filled up a week or two of posts with just the Boo! at Blacklace Hunt. The prizes are just that great. So I had to pick just two favorites. You saw the lingerie, and here’s my dress-up fav. This is the “Shadows” gown from Tinroof. Tinroof has set out three gifts for the hunt: the gown, a crow for your shoulder and the lovely masquerade type mask I’m holding. (with it’s own hold animation) At first, I only wanted the mask but I also found the gown and as soon as I saw it, I feel in love. The fabric is just gorgeous and purple is my favorite color. Plus, it’s just slinky enough to be smexy without being … um, overly reveling. perfect for a masked ball, don’t you think?

Sizes Included

  • Belleza
  • eBody
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • SLink
  • Standard Mesh XS – XL

A quick P.S. – Love showed us this gorgeous ‘statement’ necklace here. It’s still available for FREE at FaMESHed! But don’t wait too long if you need it!

Nevermore

Nevermore

Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary,
Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore—

The Raven

~ Edgar Allen Poe

Nothing like a Great Suit

It’s no question I love a good suit. In my opinion, it’s the ultimate attire of the true gentleman. And this suit? Perfection. This is “Whisper Lenore” from Sparrow By Design for the “Quoth the raven. Nevermore” Hunt. The fabric has almost a burn out velvet look that is amazing. I highly recommend taking the time to hunt down this suit. And Ladies, SBD has put out a lovely dark gown for you as well. Don’t miss it.

Size Included

Mesh sizes XS – XL

 

Cheers,
Gabriel St.James

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.

Once Upon a Midnight Dreary

Nevermore

Hello Fabulouses!  Since Ripley and I found some fantastic hunt prizes lately, we decided to hit the trail once again.  This time, we set out along the Quoth the Raven Hunt path.  Over at Little 2 Large, we discovered this fabulous gown, and it only cost 1 little Linden dollar, plus a bit of searching time.  On the wall of the shop, you’ll find a hunt poster, which contains a helpful hint in case you get stuck.

With Many a Flirt and Flutter, In There Stepped a Stately Raven

The stately raven over at Little 2 Large actually brought *more* than just the gown in my picture.  In addition to a splendid frock, you’ll also receive male and female Dinkies outfits (Dinkies are these absolutely adorable mesh kitty avatars that you may have seen around the grid), a coordinating Nevermore men’s suit, and a petite Nevermore mini dress.  The additional prizes are no transfer, but if your man happens to come along with you on the hunt, for just 1 more Linden dollar, you can look all matchy-matchy.  As you can see from my picture, the gown starts out black at the bodice, but transitions into a soft gray texture, which reminded me of watercolors.  I really love the intricate black lace that adorns the sexy, full length slits in the skirt as well as the generous hemline.  The “sleeves” on the bodice resemble black feathers, and the package also included shoulder feathers that I opted not to wear.  For just a dollar, this fabulous hunt prize will have you all set up for formal fall parties, whether you have a classic or a mesh body avatar.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fitmesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layer)
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Physique

Ripley has taken to growling at that beguiling Raven, for that bird (to quote from Poe himself):

“…never flitting, still is sitting, STILL is sitting…

just above my chamber door…”

I’d better see if I can help the pupster escape unharmed from “The Raven.”  Until next time, happy hunting!

Rose Red


Rose Red

There are a handful of events in Second Life that I actively look forward to each year. This is one of those things. The Medieval Fantasy Hunt! This is the eighteenth Medieval Fantasy Hunt from Merchant of Dreams and it’s better than ever.

… Red Roses too. I see them bloom from me to you

I am blooming in this gorgeous gown from Mirus. This is the ‘Red Roses Dress’ and it’s the free prize for the hunt. I’m in love with the beautiful corset which is separate from the flowing skirt for ease of use and lots of mixing and matching options with items from my wardrobe. I do want to mention that the skirt is a lovely solid red. The shadows on my picture make it look like it might be patterned.

Sizes Included

  • eBody
  • FitMesh
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • SLink

 

The Medieval Fantasy Hunt runs until October 28 then it fades into the moonlight till next year!

She Dunnit!

Details to follow

 

Happy Sunday Fabulousnesses, Zsa brings you a rather glamourously gruesome offering today.

Zsa’s Bloody Outfit

Strangely enough, Zsa appears to be one of the few people on SL that doesn’t like Halloween.  However, when she saw the new group gift from Belle Epoque. she begged me to let her blog it.  I must admit it is very impressively made, I particularly appreciate the edging on the shawl which gives it an ethereal quality.

The outfit is fitted exclusively for Maitreya and consists of separate skirt, top, skirt and shawl.  The gift is free, but the group does cost 10L to join – however, there are a number of other (non bloody) free group gifts available so it is well worth joining.

Greyscale

My hair today is the latest group gift from Navy & Copper, the gift is free and the group is also free to join.  It comes in a fatpack so there is plenty of choice but I again went with one of the grayscale shades which Navy & Copper do so well.

 

What is Zsa wearing? 

Mesh Body:  Maitreya Lara
Mesh Head:  Catwa Catya
Applier: Pink Fuel Alabaster
Lipstick and eye shadow:  Alaskametro Wytch Makeup Palette
Eyes: Avi-Glam Solstice
Hair: Navy & Copper ConPanna (free group gift / 0L / free to join)
Gown:  Belle Epoque Halloween Queen (free group gift / 0L / 10L to join)
Pose & Prop: Nantra Mr Pointy

Fab Free Designer of the Week – 09/29/2018 – Artizana

Hello Fab Free’rs, and happy weekend! I am excited to share with you another designer of the week, Artizana. Seriously, how pretty is the photo of the Artizana exterior and the front desk?! I have to tell you, the grounds surrounding the Artizana store are as equally worth exploring as the shop itself. The interior reminds me of the art nouveau style. Artizana is self described as a fashion house established in 2007 with fashion for both men and women. Yes, you read that right, there is menswear at Artizana.  Their unique style is inspired by African culture, so expect to see lots of vivid prints and vibrant colors.

Artizana’s in-world group has a one time join fee of 99 linden. If you shop with your Artizana group tag, you’ll get a 5% discount on purchases. Also there are quite a few Artizana VIP gifts, including one men’s semi-formal outfit. Each of the items pictured above is a free VIP group gift. In the same area of the store you’ll also find a few lucky letter chairs, and additional gifts for other store associated groups.

As you can see there are quite a few gift items to be had at Artizana. In this area is also of course where you’ll find the exclusive Fabulously Free in SL group gift. This gift is free to all Fab Free group members. You’ll need to wear your Fab Free group tag to claim this gift. If you’re not already a Fabulously Free in SL group member, not to worry, the Fab Free group is always free to join. Kat did a beautiful job of showing of the Fab Free gift from Artizana in her post “Beautiful Blue.”

A Midnight Treat

Vertigo

Hello Fabulouses!  Yesterday when the pupster and I were on one of our jaunts around the grid, we happened to stop in the Vertigo Design mainstore.  Ripley led me upstairs right over to the Midnight Mania boards lined up on the wall.  This gorgeous Glinda gown caught my eye, so I crossed my fingers, then gave the board a quick slap.  When I logged in tonight after work, I was thrilled to see an inventory offer pop up on my screen.

Simply Bewitching

With its curve hugging style that widens at the hem, plunging neckline and criss-cross straps in the back, Glinda will have you ready for an evening out on the town.  A whimsical, glittering spider web design makes the gown ideal for more formal Halloween get togethers.  It’s not showing in my picture, but the left side of the dress features a daring thigh-to-hem slit to help you show off your legs.  Best of all, you can “splurge” on this gown and still have plenty of Linden Dollars left in the budget for goodies for October’s Trick or Treaters because you can pick it up entirely for free.  Simply head to the shop and give the Midnight Mania board a tap -there’s no group required.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fitmesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (no alpha layer)
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

Until my next post, happy shopping!
