Kindred Spirits

Hello my FabFree Dears! I hope no one minds that I’m doing two ‘Fairy’ themed posts in a row. I couldn’t resist when I saw that BlueMoon Enterprises had put out this great new Group Gift: The Summer Fae.

bluemoon_002

I’m sure our readers who are more role play inclined are familiar with BlueMoon, the shop is full of beautiful RPG / fantasy/ medieval clothes and items. But even if you aren’t “one of us”, you can still appreciate this gorgeous dress. You get the lovely underdress, I’m showing, plus the gossamer wings and a lovely lace-like over dress. I’m also wearing the “Baby’s Breath Wreath w/ Butterflies” from Tamiron Forge and it’s a prize in the Medieval Fantasy Faire Mini Hunt going on till July 19th. The Medieval Fantasy Faire has a ton of great designers and a gacha garden as well. I was unable to find a web site for them ( other than what I’ve posted here) or a list of the Mini Hunt participants. If any of y’all out there have that info I’d be thrilled to get it.

Another prize in the Fantasy Faire Mini Hunt is the ‘Celtic’ necklace from Acios.  The simple elegant design is compliments by the huge HUD wil four metal choices and the twelve stone color choices. I love it when one piece can go with just about anything in my wardrobe.

Update – This is the Hunt Object for the Medieval Fantasy Faire Mini Hunt. Hope this helps out a little.

Welcome To Fantasy Island!

71415 tiffany 1

I always wanted to say that in my best, most romantic Spanish accent possible. For me growing up, Ricardo Montalbán was very cool, and when he greeted the guests on the TV show Fantasy Island with that iconic greeting, I realized nothing in the world was cooler than being a very rich man in a white suit. Oh yeah, the show had all kinds of mushy nonsense in it as well, but for me it’s the suit that I find unforgettable!

My memories of that show came flooding back when I saw what Tiffany Designs has put out as a group gift: this fantastic white suit! Now, it isn’t exactly the same suit as he wore in that tropical paradise, but it doesn’t matter. It is beautifully made and gives that same “I am so rich, I am going to order extra hot sauce on my chicken wings without giving it a second thought” kind of look. The Tiffany Designs Rey Mesh Formal Suit in white comes in two pieces: The upper (consisting of the white jacket, black shirt and dark red tie ) and the lower (the white suit pants). Each piece is offered in five sizes to help you get a good fit. If you click on the picture above and then click once more to zoom in, you can see it is nicely textured too. The suit is a FREE group gift, but Tiffany Designs will cost 50L to join. This outfit alone is worth that. The group gift will likely be changing this weekend so run there to pick this up as soon as possible and get ready to pick up another quality outfit in just a few more days. In real life, this kind of clothing wouldn’t last ten minutes on me without getting ruined in some random, yet entertaining, way. This is about fantasy though, and not practicality. So, chicken wings be damned! I finally have my fantasy summer suit!

Getting out of the summer sun, I couldn’t wait to show you a new hunt prize from the Around The Grid in 80 Days Hunt that just started two days ago. The Moon Willow Designs Ven Outfit in Tan is a stylish set consisting of an earth tones vest with a very detailed (but easy on the eyes) fabric texture and a tan shirt designed to be worn under it. The shirt looks sharp and is well textured, but carries the shadow of the vest on it, so that using it without the vest is unlikely. Taken as a unit though, both pieces look very nice together and would be a trendy choice to wear as the summer begins to wane and the nights grow cooler. The Around The Grid in 80 Days Hunt prizes cost only 1L, and the hunt object you are looking for is a rolled up scroll or map.

Lastly, I had to indulge in my Siamese cat fascination a moment. The coolest cats I ever shared space with were Siamese. The Kitty Shape Wear “We Are Siamese” T-Shirt has a cute cartoon featuring two of them on the front. As an experienced Siamese cat person, I can tell you most assuredly they are plotting something evil together. Still, when you look that good, a li’l bit of evil is entirely forgivable. The shirt is tan, comes in five sizes and is wide at the bottom to avoid conflicting with mesh jeans. Finding something to wear with it will be a breeze. The “We Are Siamese” T-Shirt is a 1L prize from the Cats Hunt and the hunt object you are looking for is a small paw print.

Well, I shall wave my farewell from my own personal Fantasy Island, where I stroll about unworried about getting catsup and mustard all over my dapper white suit. Maybe the time has come for me to begin the next phase of my life: the “Gentleman Cat Rancher” phase. Until I do, however, have fun and I’ll see you on the grid.—–WHC Riler

Postcards From Paradise!

fish54_001

Greetings from the bay shore Fabbies! I am still on vacation, no use in rushing a return to the rat race. After all, there is plenty for them to eat in my apartment and Rat #4 has definitely developed an attitude lately. Prima Donnas, I have no patience for them. Anyway, it’s much nicer at the shore as you can see from this postcard-pretty scene.

This unique shirt is great for a summer vacation. I have always had a love of fish and aquaria. In real life, I was raised with up to five tanks of tropical fish to be maintained at any given time. When I saw this FREE shirt from EccentriciXi, I knew I had to have it. I love how this shirt just screams “Vacation!” The Fishes Men’s Shirt buttons up the front and has wildly colorful, but realistic, fish printed on a dark blue background that looks great with blue jeans. Also, If I fall off the pier into the ocean, it will serve as camouflage to keep the local sharks from noticing my tasty-looking perfect complexion. I may still look like a seal, but at least I will blend in better, and that could save my tender little pixels. EccentriciXi currently offers this as a FREE group gift. I heartily recommend it for fish lovers all over Second Life.

My jeans are currently on sale at Nevermore Designs. They are the 2015 Dark Navy Men’s Baggy Mesh Jeans, which I chose because the dark blue shade looks fantastic with the shirt. They are a good basic pair of jeans with a wonderful texture, but they are a bit short. So, mostly I would suggest wearing them tucked into boots to take advantage of that. For only 35L, I am quite pleased with the find, and WOW do they look great with the shirt!

lav25 2_002b

My travels on the grid lately led me to Lavarock, one of my favorite stores on Second Life. I frequently go there to check out the group gifts, since most of them I picked up over the last fifteen months have been so great that I decided to blog them. Besides that, I love their style. Sadly, there is no new male group gift as of yet, but I did notice a gacha there for a very reasonable 25L. I try not to spend much money on SL, but knowing there were great odds to get something I would like, I paid the machine and got this cool T-Shirt! While the fish shirt screamed “Vacation!” this shirt literally screams “HeavyMetalRockAndRollTossMeAnotherEnergyDrinkHey,WhereAreMyPants?” That is a lot for a shirt to say, indeed! The shirt has heavy metal iconography emblazoned on an aggressive design, featuring a nightmarish skull that bears a horned helmet and wings. Framed with dark red flourishes, the design seems to be printed on the shirt rather than just stuck over it (a pet peeve of mine that I still occasionally see in some hunt prizes). It is a very realistic, nearly nightmare inducing T-Shirt, and one of six great designs available from the 25L gacha over at Lavarock.

My jeans are part of The Biker Hunt prize from Man Stuff, a division of Firelight Creations. I point them out because they are an excellent item to pick up for a general wardrobe. They look very realistic and fit nicely around the waist so they look great under casual tees like the one I am wearing above. The Cole Straight Leg Jeans in Black might sound familiar, I have several versions of them in my personal “go to” inventory! These come in straight-leg and tapered-leg versions. The straight leg goes especially well over short boots and sneakers. The full hunt prize is only 1L and for that price you get a black shirt with a “Ride Free” biker design, these great jeans, and a pair of shoes. The Biker Hunt ends on July 20th and the item you are looking for looks like a small motorcycle headlamp!

My vacation on the Baja Cove sim is nearly over and I have to tell you, it is even more beautiful than it appears in these pics. Soon I will be packing up the truck and heading back to my small apartment in the city. The rat race is calling and the “Living Room 100″ is the biggest racing event of the season. One hundred laps of screeching, clawing action with an entire cheese wheel at stake! My money will be on #4. Until next week my friends, see you on the grid.—–WHC Riler

Art in the Afternoon

Art Gallery

So I took myself out and went exploring this afternoon. It was nice to spend the time and take a look around. I ended up on this beautiful sim with a beach-side art gallery for an artist named Marisa Falbo. Not only is the setting beautiful and serene, so is the art. In addition to the gorgeous atmosphere, you can pick up a sample of Marisa Falbo’s amazing artwork for FREE! There’s a big gift box as you enter the gallery that anyone can purchase for 0 linden. Her other works are for purchase also, so take the time to stop by the gallery, explore the sim, and maybe pick up some art. It’s well worth the visit.

Of course such an occasion needed a great outfit. After all, the person I want to look good for the most is myself. Lucky me, I found this great tube-top and skirt combo by N-Uno on the Marketplace for just 1 linden. This “Summer Day” set is a wearable demo, it’s fully mesh, and includes matching alpha layers. I think it’s cute, feminine, and flirty. It’s the sort of outfit I want to feel confident enough to wear in real life! hahaha Not only did I feel pretty in my new outfit, it presented the perfect opportunity to show off my newest tattoo.

I love this pretty chest tattoo from La Malvada Mujer. The tattoo is a current FREE group gift at La Malvada Mujer, and the group is FREE to join. This lovely tattoo comes in regular system layers, and includes appliers for TMP, Slink, and Omega, each with a fresh and two faded options. I think the flowers at the shoulders are very pretty, and the idea of an envelope is kinda sweet and romantic.

Bohemian Daydream

Happy Monday, Fabuloseeohs! I know, I know… no one loves Monday but at least a little SL bargain hunting can make it a better day.

NS_001

I started my bargain search at the Cosmo Room. Ms Pru showed us the group gifts here but there are some good deals in the designers booths too. Like this great outfit from NS. These are the Bohemian Pants with their own HUD. The HUD lets you pick one of SEVEN colors/patterns. That’s right….seven! Your purchase includes the leather top and the sandals for SLink flat feet! All this for 70L.
The hair I’m wearing is Soonsiki‘s ‘Diamond’ which Love showed us first here.

Just remember the Cosmopolitan room runs till April 12th and Group Gifts are only up at the discretion of the designers. So if you like these looks… hurry hurry hurry!

Foxes and Birdies and Magics, oh my!

Hello FabFree Folks! While we’re all holding our breath waiting for the weekend to begin, Foxes, Birdy Skins and Alchemy have been busy building a gorgeous new Sim for their stores. In celebration of their new endeavors, they have set out a ton of lovely new Group Gifts for VIP members.

foxes

This is the Foxes ‘Vintage Skirt and Bustier’ which come together in one gift. I just love the copper color of the skirt and the dark floral print on the top. The delicate straps are actually optional so the bustier is very versatile.  Rounding out the outfit is the ‘Oversized Clutch’ in black. The clutch comes with a hold animation.

I’m also wearing Birdy Skins group gift the ‘Ali’ skin in ‘Pure’.  Skins are such a personal choice in Second Life and once you find “THE” skin shop it’s hard to look at others. But I am so loving this pretty skin. All of Birdy’s skins have a very youthful porcelain look to them and ‘Ali’ is a great example of that glow. The skin comes with tintable freckles, four eyebrow options and face contouring tattoo layers and three lip glosses.

Foxes2

The VIP group is 150L to join and usually I’m a bit shy about group fees. However, this time I didn’t hesitate to join up. For that small fee, you can pick up three skirts, four tops, three handbags and two cute little fox pets. Plus, group members can pick up the beautiful ‘Ali’ skin in ‘Pure’, and four past group gifts all for 1L each over at Birdy Skins. The VIP group covers both of the stores Oh, and the appliers for the skins are also 1L for the group members.
