Follow the White Rabbit

Hello hello, FabFree Folks! I hope the weekend has treated you well both in RL and SL.  I finally had some time to try a Hunt I’d had my eye on today: The White Rabbit Hunt from Fun with Hunts. I think y’all might like a few of the things I found.

This first look is the mini dress from Fi’s Creations. As always, Fi’s has set out a fantastic hunt prize. I love the flirty hem line and the soft summery colors. It goes perfectly with the Checkered nails from La Boheme for SLink hands and feet. You get the mani and pedi in the white checks and another mani and pedi with black checks.

I had so much fun the other day tooling around SL with Gabriel, I thought I’d let him out to play again. This is the Black Cross Eli shirt and the Black Cross Cole jeans from Man Stuff by Firelight Creations.

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!

Dreaming of Russia

Snapshot_006 Good evening Fabulous readers! I wanted to start off tonight by sending out a big thank you to Izzy Christenson for sending me the smoke and pink hoodie Alchemy Doges!  She had been seeing my lonely Cream bulldog in my posts and thought he might like some company.  I think she was right – he does look much happier now lol {hugs Izzy}!

A new round of Shiny Shabby opened up on the 20th with a super fun Russian theme.  I have been, and been back a gazillion times for purchases from different designers across the grid.  I imagine I’ll revisit again too lol because I have no control.  Anyways…  at the landing point you will find a new free group gift by LpD for Shiny Shabby inworld members (free to join).  This gift is the super sweet mesh Petunia Top by LpD that I am wearing.

Many of the decorative items you see in my little display such as the Khokhloma Cabinet, Khokhloma Chair, Yellow Trolly Table, Sweet Apples, Matrioshkas, Colorful Hanging Lamps and the Minature Russian Cathedral (RARE) are from the Ionic From Russia With Love Gacha Set at Shiny Shabby which is just 60L per play.

Tossing in a little more freeness to this collection, you can find the Casita Dreamer Sign with the dangling gold stars and [free bird] Cast Iron Fountain Wall Décor as free Wayward Hunt prizes at their respective inworld shop locations.

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!

Wayward & Lazy

Snapshot_004 Hello Fabulouses! I have put together a cozy outdoor display to show you some free and inexpensive Second Life decorative items and furnishings that are currently available via the Wayward Hunt and the Tag Gacha Event.

I started off with the Trompe Loeil Shotgun Shack that was at the previous round of The Arcade playing at 25L per play.  If you didn’t happen to snag one of these when the event was on, you can play it at the Trompe Loeil Mainstore now.   I then added several pieces of the ISON Tag Gacha Fortune Set such as the curtains in the background, the wooden chests, wooden chair, rugs, pillows and lantern.  This machine is 50L per play.

You can find the Tree Swing by Pixel Mode, which I have placed on my porch (I’m such a rebel) as a free Wayward Hunt prize.  This swing offers a menu full of single animated poses and an adjust option which is really nice if your avatar is not the standard size.  The Salvaged Wood Welcome Sign behind me on the shack wall can be found at Frogstar after you locate that hidden Wayward Hunt icon.

Cheeky Pea is where you need to visit if you’d like to pick up the Rodeo Chime which is available in three colour options as a free Wayward Hunt Prize and the Geode Mobile displayed beside the Rodeo Chimes is at Fancy Décor (also a free WH prize!).

The Toro Racer Bicycle which comes complete with a posing animation is a free group gift for joining the Wayard Events group, and they not only want you to have this gift, but they want you to take pictures of it and submit them for display on their website too.  You can find this in the past notices of the group.

Last but not least, I wanted to mention that the striped Sprite T-Shirt that I am wearing is a Wayward Hunt prize at Moran which comes in a pack of three colours (blue, black and red).

Step Right Up And Enjoy The Show.

awesome stunt show 1

As a young boy, I witnessed a man in a raggedy, sequined outfit jump over a pair of trailers on his dirt bike, much to the delight of the crowd. Years later, here I am on the shoulder of Route 23, promoting the debut of my own daredevil show. I chose to wear a group gift from TentatioN. It is very casual and sporty, but with the camouflage pattern on the cargo pants pockets and in the lower corner of the shirt, it also says, “I am a warrior.” Sometimes, it’s best to let your clothes speak for you (unless they are going to say “I’m a dork”, then there is no reason to give them a megaphone). This, however, says volumes in a positive, masculine manner.  The gift comes with a color change hud, providing four color choices for both the mesh shirt and the pants. TentatioN is not a free group, though. It will set you back 30L, but this outfit in four colors is worth it.

awesome stunt show 2

I grew up in Los Tres Dolores New Mexico , a town named for a mystical formation of three cacti. For my death-defying entry into the world of show business, I will jump over that local landmark in the greatest riding lawnmower jump in the history of mankind! At first glance a lawnmower it may not appear to be the best choice for soaring through the air, but isn’t a riding mower essentially a helicopter that has been flipped upside down? This very detailed (and shockingly fast) mower is the current FREE group gift from Knight Performance. This store along with the one which shares the building with them (Surplus Motors) are great sources for beautifully detailed vehicles in SL. Both stores are free groups and offer many Midnight Manias, group gifts and discounts. If you have any interest in vehicles on Second Life, you should seriously consider joining them.

If you are going to let your clothes do the speaking for you, this Rockabilly Hunt prize jacket from The Dark Fae positively screams, “Rebel.” Its cool stand-up collar and retro styling including a must see graphic on its’ back are perfect for people who don’t follow the rules, like me (even if it’s because I can’t be bothered to read them). The Rebel Soul Jacket sports versions with and without the t-shirt and comes in three sizes, plus an additional two sizes in fitmesh. Cool style is timeless, and this jacket is perfectly cool! This Rockabilly Hunt prize is not free, but at only 2L, it’s a bargain. These jeans are extraordinary as well, coming from a quickly expanding store called Illi. Currently on their Midnight Mania board, these Midnight Open Belt Jeans are nicely textured and look great, and a big surprise was the texture hud that came with them. Illi gives us 8 denim colors, 4 belt colors and 4 metal accent textures for the belt. That is excellent versatility for a free gift! It does carry a small logo, but it is easy to overlook, given the generosity of this Midnight Mania prize. Also worth noting are my mesh white leather sneakers, fresh from the Wayward Hunt. The prize, from the store United Colors, comes in both men’s and ladies’ sizes and with that touch of blue on them they look fantastic for a FREE hunt gift. I was truly impressed!

Well, I dressed for success and I did everything right but sometimes that just isn’t enough. Sometimes in life the ramp just isn’t high enough, or maybe the wind shifts, or maybe a lawn mower just isn’t meant to fly. A person could drive themselves crazy sitting back and reflecting over those kinds of things, but not me. I am on to my next great adventure and I hope you will be there with me.—–WHC Riler

And She Was Blue… And Black

Snapshot_006 Good evening Fabulouses! Siss Boom is celebrating 1000 inworld group members with a very special free group gift.  As always, the group is free to join and after you are a member you can pick up the group gift I blogged recently [HERE], as well as the new 1000 members  gift which is the And She Was Blue Dress I am wearing.  I adore the colour and the texturing!

My Cloud Clutch is a free Wayward Hunt prize that can be found at Reign and includes a texture change hud that allows you to switch it up a bit to match your outfits.  I went with black today so it matched up nice to the League Floral Rocks Jewelry Set that is available as a free Wayward Hunt prize at League.  This set includes the necklace and matching earrings.  Snapshot_007
