Queen of Autumn

Queen of Autum_001

I have a special free roleplay gown for you. Though if you skip the cloak and high neck collar on this gown, the red gown and mesh red gloves, make this gown fitting for any formal occasion as well.

Stop by…

Just make a stop by BlueMoon Enterprise which is housed inside of Silvan Moon Design and The White Armory. You’ll need to go inside the main-store of The White Armory, then find the BlueMoon Enterprise building inside. Once inside BlueMoon, make your way to their gift station. This gift is free with your group tag and the group is free to join as well! You’ll get the gown in several sizes, the fitted mesh gloves (they fit my Maitreya body perfectly), the high neck collar with attached necklace, and the shoulder pieces.

Dress sizes available:

  • Classic sizes XXS – M (the Medium fit my Maitreya body well)
  • Slink fitted

Mr. Pumpkin Head

Pumpkin Head

I’ve lost my head….

I’ve looked all over this corn field but I still can’t find my head. I tried on this jack-o-lantern, but it doesn’t fit quite right. Perhaps if you replace it with this skull I found, it will be a better fit…

Witch Hunters and Pumpkin Heads…

My look today is a combination of two gifts that I came across. The Witch Hunter costume is a FREE group gift at BlueMoon Enterprises it also comes with a matching female costume. (Astrid showed the Salem Witch Dress [HERE]) My head is a FREE gift at TheDarkness Monthly Event. Head over to the Kaju display and pick up your very own Mr. Pumpkin Head. This head comes with alpha masks to hid your head and even has a burning candle inside.

Once in a Bluemoon

Not so lost

Once in a Blue moon you run across a special gift and you know it’s meant for you! It was that way with the gifts I found the other day. I knew I had to share them with you!

Oh so blue…

Bluemoon Enterprise has out a gift that will leave you anything but blue, even if this traveler inspired Gypsy dress is blue in color. It includes the poet shirt and broomstick skirt in white and blues and is a free gift with your free group join.

Sizes included:

  • Standard mesh sizes XXS – L
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Belleza

Add a flower.

I stopped by the Aloha Fair and was pleasantly surprised to discover a multitude of generous gifts at the different booths. I picked out the Perllific Necklace with its attached white lily for just 1L at the IT! booth to add to my outfit as the final touch. It is lovely and pretty and all good girlie things! Don’t miss out on this pretty gift!

For Spring

For Spring

Getting totally side tracked

To be honest, I had a more casual outfit planned for today’s post. One gown a week is already a bit much but two in a row? I was lucky that my clumsiness didn’t kick in during this latest trek to send me rolling off my perch and into some poor picnickers lunch. As it was, I was crossing my fingers as I tried out various poses in the hopes of finding one that lived up to this dress. It’s called the Queen of Spring and hopefully, I’ve struck on something aptly…majestic?

Well! -coughs- Let’s get down to those all important details shall we? The Queen of Spring gown is out now at Blue Moon Enterprise as it’s very timely March group gift. It’s available for free to all group members but if you’re not currently one and have a group slot you want filling up, the group is free to join as well. There’s a lot to love about the Queen of Spring gown, with it’s plunging neckline and dramatic leaves and violets arrangement which act as the clasps to hold the cape together but it’s the little details that I really appreciated. Like how the cool shamrock shades are just a little darker around the waist to give it a look of a wrapped bodice or how the gown, armbands, and cape are subtly dusted with a layer of shimmer. Speaking of the cape, why did flexi go ‘out of style’ in SL again? I love how soft and flowing it looks when it moves around the gown.

The Queen of Spring gift folder contains:

  • Four Standard mesh sizes (XXS-M)
  • Flexi prim cloak
  • Violet shoulder piece (front and back respectively)
  • Mesh armbands
  • Separate alpha layers for the gown itself and the armbands.

I don’t RP much, if at all and I certainly won’t be able to pull off an elf/woodland fairy/princess/queen thing but if you RP or just look great in fantasy clothing, BlueMoon Enterprise and it’s finely made wares is certainly a store that you should keep an eye on.

And that’s a wrap. Next time around I’ll hopefully be in something more modern that is if I survive cleaning out the ol’ SL inventory. Catch ya later guys! Keep your fingers crossed for me!

Hello, once again dear Readers and welcome to the second edition of Edi’s Costume Ideas. I know, I know it’s probably not the snazziest of segment names but let’s get down to business, shall we? Today I bring to you the fantastically flowery Day of the Dead corset. This dramatic outfit is the new group gift from BlueMoon Enterprise and one that you can snap up for free just by joining the group. There is no sign-up fee so all you have to do is click and enjoy! With its color scheme of deep reds and blacks, this outfit is certain to be eye-catching.

I love the wonderful extras that come along with this gift. Together with the mesh corset, you will receive mesh garters, a mesh lace necklace, and panties just to name a few for starters. Aside from the panties, which comes in only system layers the corset, garters and necklace come in five standard mesh sizes (XXS-L). Don’t worry about anything poking out though as both the corset and necklace come with spiffy alpha layers. Now comes the fun part, as you can choose to wear the outfit as is or add a bit of flowery flair to it using the different flower attachments that can be found in the package. Points of attachments are the waist, neck, and hair (not pictured) and you can mix and match to your heart’s content.

If by any chance the outfit is not already dramatic enough for you, you can add the waist sash and the train. In this age of mesh that we all live our Second Lives in I must admit that I don’t have a lot of flexi things in my inventory but the train is so much fun and I love the way it moves and swishes behind you.

To tie the whole look together I put on the White Stag mask from Hextraordinary that you can get by playing the store’s gacha machine at the Salem macabre market and gacha gallows. It’s 50L per play and there are so many great masks up for grabs. I’ll probably be heading over again just to see if I can win one of the rare ones! And speaking of gacha, the hair pictured is from Analog Dog’s latest offering at The Epiphany. I’m a lover of odd colors and tints for hair and was very pleased that this one comes with a number of different highlights.

Of flowers headshot

However, if you don’t feel like wearing a mask, the Day of the Dead outfit comes with its own makeup layer. It’s aptly named Sugar Skull and it’s eye-popping colors stand out even if, like me, you’d like to hide in the shadows for a while.

Well! I’m off to see if there are other costumes to sniff out. Wish me luck and I’ll catch you later!

Autumn Afternoon

Heyya FabFree!

Autumn Afternoon

I know it’s not Tuesday but I’m feeling a fantasy role play mood coming on. Maybe because I picked up this gorgeous frock from BlueMoon Enterprise for free. This is “Coreen” in a lovely rusty red and it’s the latest group gift for September. The dress comes in the standard mesh sizes XXS-L and has a good alpha layer. As with everything from BlueMoon I’ve seen, Coreen is simply stunning in build and in details.  Don’t miss this one!

I was also excited to see that Mina has put out a free gift for the Second Life Frees & Offers group. The group is free to join and you can pick up tons of great freebies all around the grid. Mina is giving us this sweet hair style named, appropriately, “Mena” this month. Mena comes in a materials and a no materials version in this lovely light brown color. If you haven’t discovered Mina this is a great way to try it out for free… and get addicted. 😉

As with all free gifts, these may not be around long so grab those group tags and get going!

Aries

Heyya FabFree!

Aries

It’s Saturday and that means it’s Juli’s Hunt Day!  I’m back on the Women’s Stuff Hunt because, wow, there’s some nifty prizes for this round! My first show-off is from BlueMoon Enterprise which never fails to amaze. This is the ‘Solas’ gown and it’s the free Women’s Stuff Hunt prize. This gorgeous gown comes in Mesh sizes XXS-L and has a good alpha layer. The bow and the gauzy skirts are all a very delicate looking Flexi. Normally, I’m not crazy about Flexi but this is so very well made it just flows and I love it. The gown can be worn without the Flexi pieces for a more modern sleek look as well.

In my wanders around the grid, I stopped in to Blues Hair to see what was new and I was fortunate enough to snag one of the free Lucky Board prizes that perfectly matches with my new gown. This is ‘Aries’ and it includes the fantastic horns you see. The gift comes with a HUD for the horns containing ten natural looking colors. The hair’s HUD also has ten pretty pastel colors that come in ‘roots’ and regular versions. One note, the hair and the horns are one item and they cannot be worn separately.

The Women’s Stuff Hunt runs until August 31 so get out there and hunt! One quick note – Some of the designers in the Women’s Stuff Hunt have placed their prizes for 1L or for 0L… either way you’re going to get a really great gift! 🙂

Of Fairies, Ladies, and Crypts

The spirits of ladies on lakes and fairies wander freely… the moon shines and though you know you should be afraid… you can’t help but feel enchanted instead. And it all begins with a few pumpkins left out for the picking by the Fantasy Creator’s Showcase Event at the Rising Phoenix Sim

Of Fairies, Ladies, and Crypts [1]

“All the ancient classic fairy tales have always been scary and dark.” – Helena Bonham Carter

And the Creator’s Showcase Hunt got this idea just right with their fantastic gifts. There are 13 pumpkins hidden on the sim — actually they are all out in plain sight. Some of the stores have one pumpkin at their stalls. A few of them have two. All of them are easy to see and you just buy the contents for FREE. A trick not a treat!

In the picture above Astrid is wearing the Autumn Fae costume (complete with wings) by BlueMoon Enterprises. This Creator Showcase Hunt Pumpkin Gift is FREE and includes the full outfit in all the standard mesh sizes plus the gorgeous wings you see in the picture.

I also wanted to show you this fabulous Halloween Cat Mask by Chimeric Arts & Fashion which seemed to fit the Autumn Fae Costume just perfectly. This too was another FREE Hunt Pumpkin Gift at the Creator Showcase event.

Just behind Astrid and at her feet you can see the Creator’s Show Case Hunt Gift from United InishCon *UI* called the Dirty Little Secret Log. It has great little butterflies that flit and fly above it as well as a terrific animation when you sit on it. Your avatar will look from side to side before crawling inside to hide in the log! Like all the other gifts, it too is absolutely FREE!

Of Fairies, Ladies, and Crypts [3]

“As much as I’d like to meet the tooth fairy on an evening walk, I don’t really believe it can happen.” – Chris Van Alssburg

Of course… this is Second Life where anything can happen — (almost) — and look! There is a fairy and the lady of the lake both! As well as another chance for me to show off some amazing Hunt Gifts. If you look in Astrid’s right hand, you’ll see she is carrying the Creator’s Showcase Hunt FREE Hunt Gift from Souzou Eien by Draconias Timeless called Light of the Watch. This fantastically detailed lantern works with your AO just fine (or any pose) to let your avatar hold it with the supplied animation.
And since we are out on a walk meeting fairy tale figures… let me introduce you to the lady of the lake, courtesy of Folklorica! As their contribution to the Creator’s Showcase Hunt, their FREE gift is this stunning Glowing Lady on the Water gift. It includes the floating lily pads and pumpkins (which are animated and turn) and the glowing Lady of the lake who is scripted to appear and disappear during night time hours on the sim where it is rezzed. (Be sure the sim it is rezzed on has a night time setting. The lady will NOT appear during ‘day’ hours if the environment has a day setting. And the script is affected by region settings, not your personal windlight setting.)

Of Fairies, Ladies, and Crypts [2]

“I am your fairy tale. Your dream. Your wishes and desires, and I am your thirst and your hunger and your food and your drink.” – Klaus Kinski

 Last but not least, I wanted to share this fabulous Creator’s Showcase Hunt gift from Old World Designs. Just like all the other gifts, it is completely FREE and well worth picking up. The Spider Infested Crypt has a resting pose for one avatar and a ‘sit’ pose for another avatar (if someone wants to sit on it while someone else is resting inside O.o) and the spiders are affected by movement. In other words… they appear and scuttle and dash away everywhere — and make tons of creepy spider noises if you sit in the crypt, stand up out of it, or if you or someone else nearby moves around it much! It is simply a must have for any haunted decor or All Hallow’s Eve celebration!

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.

 

MFF Collage

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.
