Snow Gothic and Mage Red Makes for Perfect [Z]xen

I first fell in love with everything “Gothic” when I was eight years old. My babysitter was a teenage girl of about fifteen and my parents had gone out for “kid free” time, and she was doing her homework and reading Edgar Allen Poe’s “The Raven” to me. After that I was hooked.

And then she let me read over her shoulder, and I read, “For Annie” for the very first time as well. Perhaps “For Annie” is not about Vampires at all… but I thought it was! And even at the tender age of eight, I wanted to be a vampire!

“Thank Heaven! the crisis —
The danger is past,
And the lingering illness
Is over at last —
And the fever called “Living”
Is conquered at last.”

[from “For Annie” by Edgar Allen Poe]

I think that is why the ensemble that I put together this week really appeals to me! [MC] Mystic Canvass is — first, and foremost — a fabulous one-stop-shop if you are looking for quality Roleplay skins that won’t break your pocketbook. Many of them are priced at only 99L$ for a full pack, and that includes a bonus shape as well as Lolas and/or other great appliers. The store also has a terrific variety of affordable cosmetics and mesh accessories that are out-of-this-world unique. And with this gorgeous Skin as their current FREE Group Gift (Group is 0L to Join!) coming in 4 skin tones with Lolas, Phat Azz, and Slink Appliers? How can a classic Gothic Vampire girl like me go wrong?!

Of course, I did not want to be a glittery vampire! No! No Twilight sparklers here! Growing up, I wanted to know Dracula and Dark Shadows and vampires like Louis de Pointe du Lac. I wanted pale skin, red lips, crimson eyes, blood that ran cold, and a heart that was colder! Because somehow… I thought it was like being a thorned rose — the ultimate thing of danger… power… and beauty. And yes… even as a tender young girl of only eight years old, I knew it.

“My tantalized spirit
Here blandly reposes,
Forgetting, or never
Regretting its roses —
Its old agitations
Of myrtles and roses:”

[from “For Annie” by Edgar Allen Poe]

So I pulled up Market place for a little help in completing my classic Vampire look — one I was sure would make Bram Stoker himself proud!

I didn’t manage to find a proper Edgar Allen Poe raven that suited me, but this amazing fitmesh dress by +Nocturna+ features a detailed owl print that is a stand-out and the dress pack includes both fitmesh as well as standard mesh sizes and can be found on the Marketplace for only 10L. A little more searching and I was able to complete my Gothic beauty with a set of Mage Red eyes by Imperium which were also found on the Marketplace (a steal of a deal for eyes this sharply detailed at only 9L$!) and last but not least I topped it off with an intricately wrought necklace in black by ~Edenia — another great FREE find on the Marketplace!

The ’80s Called

1980

So the 1980s called Pru, and said they totally wanted this outfit back. She said no way 1980s, I look rad! hahaha Seriously though, I’m very tempted to hunt down some leg warmers to go with this cute little dress by Pink Sugah. This partial mesh dress is a current FREE gift at the Bewbapalooza event. The dress comes with system layers, a mesh skirt piece, and appliers for Omega, Slink, TMP, and Lolas Tango. You will need to join the Bewbapalooza group to get it, however the group is FREE to join and there are several gifts to be had.

Next up, I found this sweet jewelry set by Somnia as a FREE gift at the current round of The Thrift Shop. These bat-winged hearts come with a color change hud to adjust the color of the hearts, the metal, and an additional bead on the earrings. You can pick up the complete set for FREE when you stop by the Somnia booth at The Thrift Shop!

The star of this post has to be this adorable kitten Pru’s got resting on her head. I think this kitty has the most adorable face! This little guy or gal is a FREE subscribo gift at Altair. All you have to do to bring him or her home is stop by the Altair main store and use the elevator at the entrance to teleport upstairs. Then click the subscribo and you’ll be gifted with your new kitten!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Goodbye to Sandra D.

Sandra

Hello Fab Free! For those celebrating Memorial Day this weekend, I hope you have some lovely weather. One of the great things about Second Life is the rain can’t ruin the party.  Speaking of parties, I feel ready for a retro sock-hop in this fantastically adorable group group gift at Knockers.

The Knockers group is 150 lindens to join, and this fully mesh group gift dress and matching jacket are well worth the effort. This mesh dress can be worn with or without the matching mesh jacket. I think the jacket would be equally cute with jeans, and y0u’ve gotta love the iconic poodle decal on the skirt as well as the back of the jacket. Both items come in standard mesh sizes with matching alpha layers. The dress has appliers for Lolas Tango and Mirage.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Spring Green

Spring Green Final

Spring green sounds so cliche but I don’t care, over the years green has become one of my favorite colors, and it does remind me of spring! This cute top by Vivi feels especially spring-like with the faint floral pattern and the lovely shade of pale green. The top comes in yellow as well, and the set is a current FREE gift available at Fab Free Headquarters! These tops also have the added detail of some little buttons at the lower back, which I think is sweet and a little sexy. The tops can be worn on system layers, and include Omega Appliers, WowMeh, Lena, Lolas, and Slink appliers.

Spring is in the air at Nail Me! also, the April group gift is out. This FREE mani/pedi set (for Slink hands/nails) includes several pretty pastel options with a delicate dotted pattern. There is also an Omega applier included in the gift. My photo does not do the polish justice, so I included a copy of the vendor photo below. The Nail Me! group is currently FREE to join, so don’t miss out on these. There are also several past group gifts still available, now’s your chance to get them all!

The Flounce Spring Hunt

Flounce Hunt

Happy Easter Fab Free! Did you know that Flounce is celebrating Spring with an in-store hunt?

The Flounce main store is having a FREE hunt that includes skins, makeup, eyes, sunglasses, and this lovely dress! The hunt includes 12 eggs, the eggs are completely FREE with no need to join a group. There are 6 total skins to be found, 6 pairs of eyes, 3 lipstick tattoos, 3 pairs of sunglasses, and one fully mesh dress. Each of the skins include appliers for Slink Physique, Slink Hands, Slink Feet, Lolas Tango, Baby Bump, TMP, and Ghetto Booty. The dress is beautifully textured and would make a perfect dress for an afternoon or evening Easter gathering. Also, the sunglasses are just too cute to miss out on. I don’t want to be alarming, but the hunt ends tonight at midnight, so run run run!

To add the finishing touch to my pretty new look, I picked up the I Heart the Cart Hunt Gift from Nail Me!. These pretty blue and green pastel nails include the option for a cute bunny on one or all of the nails. These nail appliers are meant to be used with the latest Slink update. For just 2 lindens, this is the perfect Spring manicure to go with the perfect sting dress. Here’s a hint : Relaxing in the shade of the snowy oak. Happy Hunting!

He Loves Me… He Loves Me Not…

He Loves Me Full

…He Loves Me… He Loves Me Not… He Loves Me!

Anyone who has ever mangled a flower in the name of finding out whether or not someone “loves” you, or has seen The Little Mermaid knows exactly what is going on in this photo! It’s true, love is in the air this time of year, and no matter how cynical I want to be about it, eventually it gets to me and I want to participate in all the fun silly romance!

No type of clothing is more romantic than sexy feminine lingerie, at least not in my opinion. 1 Hundred is participating in the Boob Job Hunt and this frilly pink top is their $2 linden hunt prize. Though pink may not be a common color in my personal wardrobe, this pretty little top with the key hole in the center and the white lace, and even the little bows was too cute and pretty to pass up. I had to have it! This top from 1 Hundred includes regular clothing layers, as well as Lolas Tango appliers and an Omega HUD.

Wanting to keep things sweet and simple, I didn’t add much else to the look, however I did find some pretty extras on the Marketplace. First, you may have seen the notices in the Fab Free group, Nail Me! has several FREE Slink nail appliers on the Marketplace in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness. I chose to wear the traditional pink version, but there are other equally pretty colors available. Also on the Marketplace, I found some pretty makeup from Pink Acid, this single tattoo layer is a complete look with lip-gloss, blush, and eye-shadow. You can find the Pink Acid makeup for just $1 linden on the Marketplace.

Here are the details, Enjoy!
