More Gifts Right Meow

Meow Meow

Hello again Fab Free’rs! I’m back with a few more gifts from the current round of The Instruments, and a fun group gift from SlackGirl. I’m certain I’ve mentioned in previous blogs of mine that I started out my Second Life as a Neko, and though I don’t often wear ears and a tail these days, it’s still one of my favorite “styles” for lack of a better word when I’m feeling cute and playful.

The phrase “cute and playful” definitely fits the gift from BYRNE at The Instruments. The mesh jacket and tie combination is a FREE gift that comes with 3 versions. Pru is wearing the “original” version as named in the gift. Each version has a color variation of this fun fabric. I love how whimsical it looks with the splashes of color and mesmerizing curved lines. It definitely makes me think of something hand painted and high fashion.

Meow Close Meow

Also at The Instruments for FREE is this lovely collar from Indulge Temptation. The collar is fully scripted, however I’ll be honest I am not entirely familiar with collar scripts, and so I’m not going to begin to explain what the scripts do. LOL Some of the options appear to be for basic things like re-sizing, while others are lifestyle related. Either way, the collar is adorable on, and I personally am content to wear it as a pretty accessory. Additionally, these gorgeous nails are also a FREE gift at The Instruments. This gorgeous gold-tipped polish set is from Alme, and it includes 3 variations, including grey, and a black version. The applier set will work for Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, and Omega compatible nails.

Finally, I mentioned a gift from SlackGirl, and you guessed it, it’s the beautifully done kitty face! This pretty kitty makeup is a full face applier Group Gift from SlackGirl. The gift includes an applier for Catwa heads, an applier for Omega compatible heads, and a classic makeup layer. To get this gift you’ll need to join the SlackGirl group, which carries a one time fee of 100 lindens. You’ll find this gift along with many others on a wall just inside the SlackGirl entrance.

Here are the details, I hope you enjoy this playful Neko look!

Fly Away

Fly Away

I’m taking some time to relax now after a whirlwind tour of the Pick my Strawberry! Event. There are approximately 50 creators participating and if you stop by, you’ll find a little strawberry at each store’s booth, with a FREE gift! While there, I picked up a couple that I really found just as delightful as the theme:)

This beautiful white dress with its flared style skirt and sensual plunging neckline is the FREE gift from the FAIDA booth. Just buy the strawberry for 0L and this pretty dress is yours in all the standard mesh sizes.

Fly Away 2

I also found a couple of lovely gifts I couldn’t pass up at the Firefly booth. Buy the Firefly strawberry for 0L and you’ll get 2 FREE gifts… this intricately detailed blue and silver mesh hair comb, as well as this Black Birds tattoo for your back. The tattoo comes in a system layer as well as a Maitreya mesh body applier.

The event ends May 23rd, so don’t delay! Hurry over and Pick Your Strawberries!

I Heart Purple

I Heart Purple

It’s safe to say I love when a new PurpleMoon Creations group gift is released… and the Freda gown that is available now is no exception. This purple sequined beauty is amazing! It includes the main mesh dress which I’m showing you, plus several add ons — system and omega applier gloves, and a flexi skirt which I opted to leave off because I liked the sleek look of the skirt without it.

This dress comes in all the standard sizes, plus standard fitmesh sizes, as well as Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink. The PurpleMoon group costs 50L to join, but you’ll see regular group gifts for your fee (and this one gift alone is well worth that sum!).

I Heart Purple 2

I always try to add a little sparkle to my outfits with jewelry. This dress didn’t need much, but I found what I was looking for at Zuri Rayna. Just not exactly in the form I expected! The SL Frees & Offers group gift there (the group is FREE to join) is a FREE belly piercing! But…. a little imagination had me imagining this Chantelle’s Heart Belly Piercing as a pair of earrings.

To get the same look, you’ll need to make a copy of the piercing and then use the ‘attach to’ option in your inventory to attach one to your avatar’s right ear and one to the left. Then resize each new “earring” by downsizing it 20%. Edit the new “earring” into its proper place and voila! You could always wear it as a Belly piercing too of course, just be sure to make one extra copy that you don’t edit!😉

Black and Silver

Just for Fun

Elegance never goes out of style… and Elegance Boutique gets it right with this group gift called Mavi. The group is FREE to join and the gift is FREE too. It only comes in Maitreya fit, but I loved it so much I wanted to share it with you!

P.S. Sorry for all the confusion with this post! There was a glitch with the store but it’s fixed:) This gift is available now!

Just Mavi ... lous in Black and Silver 2

I am feeling adventurous today! Or maybe it’s this marvelous FREE gift from Chop Zuey! It made me feel like Bond… Jane Bond! The Ophelia set in Silver and black has been set to buy at 0L as a gift for FabFree members. Just buy this gift for 0L and it is yours at the Chop Zuey main-store. You’ll get the resizable choker, earrings, and bracelet set for FREE! If you prefer gold, there is an identical gold set as a Chop Zuey group gift that you can also pick up.

Pearl Elegance

Pearl Elegance

A formal gown is always a staple in any lady’s wardrobe in Second Life… and a FREE formal gown is always a plus. When I saw the Stacie gown in coral at Finesmith, the most recent FREE group gift (the group is FREE to join), I knew it would be a dress that I would want to wear over and over.

This beautiful gown with its classic styling comes in all the standard sizes, as well as fitmesh, Maitreya, and Belleza. And the back is just as pretty as the front, with a scooped draping syling that is so lovely you’ll want an updo or a side-sweep hairdo to show it off.

Pearl Elegance 2

I knew that this dress called for special jewelry, so I was thrilled when I saw the May V.I.P. Gift at Ecco… a set of stacked pearls. You get both the necklace and the bracelets as part of the gift. I’ve always loved the classic look of pearls, and this set does it just right, plus you’ll get a hud that allows you to choose between classic white, or to change these to black pearls if you prefer. The group is 200L to join, but remember — you’ll be getting monthly group gifts, plus access to lots of past group gifts to make it worth your fee.

Coquette

30L Saturday is always prime time to stock up on your roleplay wardrobe, and this Saturday was no exception! I found a couple of pieces that I fell in love with this morning and wanted to share with you!

Coquette

This Dionne Gown in Bronze is by Velvet Whip. I’m showing it to you without the optional scarf and undershirt, as I also picked up the silver owl Coquette necklace that you can see in the close-up below. The necklace is also from Velvet Whip. Each piece is only 30L each, and makes for a stunning addition to a medieval or gorean roleplay wardrobe.

The dress comes in all the standard mesh sizes as well as three fitmesh sizes, so you are sure to find a good fit. The necklace is copy and modify to allow for adjustments as well, making 30L a great price for this beautiful piece.

Be sure to hurry though, these deals are only for today!

Last Exit to the Weekend

Last Exit to the Weekend

This morning was chilly and it made me think that spring was having her last fling before summer. And of course today is Friday… that last exit before the weekend. I have a few special treats to get you through the day until Saturday blooms, though:)

If you’ve not yet started the Runway Perfect Hunt, you should consider picking up this dress by Loordes of London. I really like the unique style of this one piece mesh cover up (which has the look and feel of layers). It’s long enough to be a dress, but short enough to be a shirt. You could easily pair it with your favorite jeans or capris. It will only cost you 5L and a little hunting time for the black and white prim. It comes in all the standard sizes, as well as Freya, Isis, Venus, and Physique.

Last Exit to the Weekend

Chop Zuey has out a new group gift called Harlow Creed… a texture change ring. I have always really loved cameos, but this one also appealed to my sense of Gothic flair. So I nabbed it up to show off to you as well. It offers 3 metal choices and several color choices for the cameo part. The group is 350L to join, but you’ll be getting regular gifts to offset this fee, making it well worth your fee.

Last Exit to the Weekend

And since it *is* Friday, I decided to scout out the Fifty Linden Friday deals… and discovered that Livalle was offering a set of maryjanes that I really fell in love with. Previously this pair of shoes was offered in the color mint as a gift (Calleja showed them to you Here). If you missed out on that great offer, you can pick up a four pack of the shoes today. You’ll get cherry, navy, pink, and white in the box for your 50L. These shoes fit Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza feet.
