Shield Maiden… In Training

Snapshot_004Hey FabFree! So… I started watching the Vikings TV Series on The History Network and I am really enjoying it so far.  With just a few episodes under my belt, I am learning quite a bit about the old ways of Viking culture (or at least how it is being portrayed in the series!) and am day dreaming of the steamy barbaric Ragnar Lothbrock.

We didn’t just make sandwiches…

Even the women were able to fight as warriors which is really cool.  They were called Shield Maidens, and this is what has inspired my warrior look today.

While I was at The Vintage Gacha Fair the other day, I  noticed that Bite & Claw had their Eowyn Gacha Set out at just 30L per play.  In just a few pulls of the gacha handle, I was set with a dress, accessories and the rare corset!  I added the free Bite & Claw Vintage Gacha Fair gift, which is the Ionna Circlet in black, and the Dragonfly Choker which was also found as a free gift at the event over in the Junbug display!  Both of these gifts are set to 0L, and no group join is required to pick them up!

Lend Me Your Hairs!

“Friends, Ladies, Second Lifers, lend me your hairs; I come to wear hair, not to praise it…”

Wait. That’s not how that quote goes. Either way — Sometimes we all need a new do and I have just the dos for no dough for you!

Lend Me Your Hairs! [1]

You really can never go wrong by taking a jaunt over to Analog dog to check out the latest offerings in the FREE Ball at the back of the sim. Currently Style 1 and 2 in the pictures above are offers. Style 1 (Bangers) and 2 (Lolly) are real lookers. Though one says blondes and one says light reds, I discovered that the hud included a tinting option that let me tint the hair literally any color I wanted and I managed to get both hairs to the rich chocolate shade you see in the picture. Style 3 is the current FREE group Gift at Dura called Valentine with your FREE group join and is also a fatpack of colors as well!

Lend Me Your Hairs! [2]

Mina Hair is always classic for any occasion. I love the realistic textures and the unique designs. These two gifts — styles 4 (Ilse) and 5 (Tristan, which is also unisex and comes in 4 styles in the box) above are current in-store group gifts FREE with your 200L group join fee. They both are full fat packs. Don’t let the fee deter you. Mina offers regular group gifts, special offers, and discounts to VIPS to make up for the fee.

Lend Me Your Hairs! [3]

Need something elegant? Just not in the casual mood? [Entwined] is your one stop shop! Above in the picture you can see that styles 6, 7, and 8 are fantastic for any classic elegant look (though style 6 — called Anna — is on the fence — it would be great for casual wear too). Style 7 is called Holly, and style 8 is called Elinna and these great hair gifts are yours FREE at [Entwined] when you join the group for FREE and pick them up in world at the store and they all come in full color pack huds!

Lend Me Your Hairs! [4]

We’ll finish up with do 9 and 10. You’re going to pick up number 10 — called Ivy — while at [Entwined]. It’s another elegant style there FREE with your FREE group join. Style number 9 is called Astarte and is FREE with a hop pop and stop over to +Spellbound+ with a 100L group join fee — but the fee is worth it for this style alone as it is a full gift color pack and then add in later gifts and other benefits… how can you complain?

Well that’s it for me. I’m out of hair for now. I mean, I’m out of here for now. You get the picture! 😉

❆ Bon Iver ! ❄

Bon Iver, my dears! Winter is one of my absolutely most favorite times of year and Seraphim must agree. The 3rd Midwinter Fair is in full swing and runs till December 24th. With fifty designers, you are sure to find some frosty favorites  too. All the gachas are 30L and most venders have big discounts on their items. If that isn’t enough, there’s a Holiday Tree with a ton of free gifts for everyone!

bonhiver_001

First up is this beautiful snow gown by Les Encantades. This is one of the two rares in their gacha and at 30L per play you can collect a bunch. The cloak and the gown are separate pieces making it a very versatile prize.  I just love the lace details along the edge. I think it would make the perfect winter wedding dress for those hearing wedding bells in their future.

Next is the Christmas Dress from Independent Objects. This is their free gift under the Fair’s holiday tree. And you know we love free! Especially when it’s something as nice as this dress.

christmas dress_001

Lastly, this is Bite and Claw’s  Eowyn gown in green. This is also from their 30L gacha. I love a nicely styled medieval gown and this is certainly that. My candle is the free gift from Dark Forge. You can find it under the tree.

Tuesdays with The Warrior Queen

Warrior Queen 1

Considering the time of day, I am going to make this post short and sweet in hopes of giving all the Fab Free readers as much time as I can to pick up these fantastic items. Today is Tuesday, and one thing I enjoy about Tuesdays is $25 Linden Tuesdays! As I generally do, I went through and checked out each of the participating shops, and really found some exciting fantasy and gorean themed items. I’m calling this look “The Warrior Queen”. The horns and headdres are from Sublime Shroud Kreations, and there are several colors to choose from, I think the details are stunning on this piece! The circlet is from Keystone. It includes various colors, as well as a silver version for lots of options, making this a really gorgeous versatile piece. The face-paint is a gacha item at Bite & Claw, there are several options, but I genuinely like this one the most. I like the sort of feral feel it gives to the overall look. Next I picked up this full outfit from Luas, it too is available in multiple color options. Wanting to give this Warrior Queen a little regal flair to her attire, I added the corset from Roawenwood, which also includes a color change HUD. I think it really completes the look and makes for a gorgeous fantasy inspired ensemble. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Guest Blog by Serena Snowfield – Ever After

A Guest Blog by Serena Snowfield, originally blogged [HERE]  *Note from Love Trill – this post was done yesterday – The Hair Fair Items are no longer available, but I thought you might enjoy a re-visit from Serena with a fabulous 30L deal from Bite & Claw! 

b&c8_001f

What I miss about childhood is the absolute belief that I will one day marry a prince, become a princess, and live happily ever after. Sadly, real life and old age have proven that theory to be a bust, but at least I can still play dress up and pretend in SL. This gorgeous dress is from Bite&Claw, and if you hurry, you can pick it up on sale for only 30L! My pretty updo is a free gift from LaNoir Soleil at Hair Fair 2014… again, hurry because today is the last day. Oh, and another last minute event you can catch is Lazy Sunday, where you can pick up the sweet Paper Butterflies lamp from Plethora.

Also “fit for a princess” is this vanity table by [CIRCA] – complete with lots of accessories and animations! – available at the current round of, er… Fit For a Princess. Several colors from which to choose! While you’re there, you can also pick up the crown and necklace I’m wearing, and play the [freebird] gacha for a sparkly, royal manicure.

Have a “happily ever after” week!

I <3 NY, and I Got Milk!

Blogging soon!

Oh my goodness, how is it Friday already?! It seems like this week has just flown by… probably because I’ve been stuck at home with a sick kid… but enough about that! This cute outfit, which includes leggings, sweater, and boots, is the generous Womenstuff Hunt gift from Hawker’s House. The Womenstuff Hunt runs until March 31, and there are some truly fabulous gifts available from 200 amazing designers, all for only 1L each. Some designers are even offering exclusive items which you will only be able to find during the hunt. Trust me, this is one hunt you DO NOT want to miss! 🙂

ws_hawkers_fleur2blush_hands_001f

This cute updo is a group gift from *Milk* Hair. The group is free to join, and let me just say this: FAT PACK. That’s right, the gift comes in just about every color imaginable! So run… ok, tp… to Milk as fast as you can before you miss this fantastic gift! My fun ring and earrings are Marketplace gifts from .Olive. There is also a bracelet, but I figured it would just hide under my sleeve, so I’m not wearing it (but I did pick it up!). Called Maybe They’re Real, I can’t tell if they look like rocks or some type of reptile skin, but they’re cute – and unusual! – just the same. They also come in a dark gray color with red stones.

Need nails? I thought these appliers from .::Ceiling::. were fun, and they’re only 1L on the Marketplace! Appliers for your toesies are also included. 😀

Blogging soon!

My skin is the lovely Fleur, an new release from Bite & Claw for The Skin Fair. She will be released in the usual B&C 5 tones, but I’m only showing a preview of tones 2 (light) and 4 (dark). I’m typically a fair-skinned girl, but I have to say that tone 4 is really nicely done. There are several make-ups and the usually appliers available for this skin. FWIW, The Skin Fair opened today (March 14), and I’ve been trying to get in all day today with no success. It runs until March 30, so hopefully there will be plenty of time for us all to pay a visit!

Prowler

So, Love told me about this “great party” happening last night at a haunted house. I should have known better when she said she couldn’t go. I got all dressed up, only to find that no one LIVING was there – although there were plenty of UNDEAD – and I wind up running through the forest with the biggest spider I’ve ever seen on my shoulder! Hey Love, next time, YOU go with me to the “great party!” I’m never going alone ever again! 😯

Blogging soon

I might be running scared, but at least I look good! My dress is Prowler, the October group gift from Total Eclipse Couture. The group is only 10L to join, and there’s also a gift out for the fellas, so head on over! My boots are one of the latest group gifts from Baby Monkey, and come in 8 boot colors and 5 heel colors. My necklace and earrings by Maxi Gossamer are not free, but are only 188L at the October round of Collabor88. They come in 3 different metal colors.

Blogging soon

How pretty is this skin, right? Last night, I was tp’ing around looking for a particular store, and I somehow managed to pop into new-to-me skin store ::Bite & Claw::. And I found this lovely skin for 0L in a gift box on the coffee table! It comes in 2 skin tones with matching mesh feet, Lola’s appliers, 4 cleavage options, and freckles.

Now to find a party with LIVING people! 😆
