A Gypsy’s Tale

A Gypsy's Tale

Hello FabFree! I’m back again today with a few more goodies! I wanted to show you a lucky letter prize I picked up at PoshTale. I really love PoshTale clothing. It’s wonderfully versatile… working well as either modern attire or as roleplay outfits. My top is a perfect example. This Kasai Fringe Top is a FREE lucky letter board prize at PoshTale right now and would work well for either genre. No group is required, just some luck!

This is an applier top and includes appliers for Maitreya, Belleza, Slink, TMP, and Omega. You also get two color huds for each. The plain and patterned hud each offer 8 color choices, for a total of 16 different tops with this one applier. If this top doesn’t suit you, there are 3 other lucky letter boards currently at PoshTale for you to try your luck at.

My hair is a FREE SLB13 gift from Hairology. We’ve been showing you lots of pretty hair gifts from Hairology… this one is called “Unity” by Damselfly, and like all the other SLB13 gifts won’t cost you a single Linden. It comes in two sizes (one is to fit larger busts) and is a full fatpack of colors.

A Gypsy's Tale 2

A part of me has always been a bit of a Gypsy at heart… and perhaps that is why I love this gift from Cellar Door so much. I picked it up as part of the SLB13 celebrations at We ❤ RP and it is yours FREE once you go to the Cellar Door booth there and click the cake and get your slice for your FREE gift. The box includes the necklace I am showing you, which is the rose gold color, as well as the necklace in black, bronze, gold, and silver.

I also picked up the Kunglers SLB13 gift while I was at We ❤ RP. It is a really elaborate and beautiful pair of earrings called Eliza Leaf. They are shaped like leaves and are embedded with small opals and have rose quartz wired to the tops of the metal leaves. They are really beautiful. This is a FREE gift that you won’t want to miss.

If you are a photographer in Second life and you liked my poses for this post, consider stopping by the Cart Wash Sale where you can pick up several very nice poses. My poses are by Picture Perfect. The Cart has single poses, couple poses, and even a group pose… all for only 10L each!

The Sequel to Room 326 – Cry of the Peacock Hunt

CryofThePeacock_A

Hello all my Fabulous Friends….

Have you heard the Peacock cry?

Well, the last couple of days I’ve been doing the latest Madpea Hunt, “Cry of the Peacock“.  They say that when a Peacock cries… it rains… well, it is POURING in Mad City.   Our job is to be the brave detective that frees the victims trapped souls. (The victims of the are the people from the prior hunt…. “The Room 326 Hunt” I wrote up this hunt before in my post “Returning to Room 326…“. This hunt is still going on as well…. Read my former posting to get all those great gifts along with this ones…. )

“How do we do this hunt Care?” You might be asking yourself….

Teleport to “Mad City  – Silent Peacock Hotel” , there you will see a phone stall on the wal to your left… It looks like this…

Cry of the Peacock Hunt HUD Vendor

This is the Hunt HUD Vendor for this hunt…  (NOTE: This hunt hud costs L$ 100, but once you see the prizes you will most likely be willing to spend that 😉 )

When you wear your newly acquired HUD it will open up with a note from Madame Peacock…..

HUD opened….

What you need to accomplish to finish this hunt and claim the prizes….

Complete the sheets of music
Find the code to the Police Station safe
Locate the missing posters in the City
Match the posters with the police file
Find items belonging to the victims
Oh and free the victims, dont forget that 😉

Roawenwood and my new Fantasy Faire look :)

Hello there Fabulousians!!!

     I ran over to the Fantasy Faire 2013 and wanted to post to you all the 2 free female skins and hairs that they are giving away as low lag avatars, they come with painted clothes on the skins, so you are basically walking around in your skin!! *grins*  You can pick up these at the any of the Landing Points for the faire, along with a souvenir T-shirt and Landmark pack…. These beautiful skins and hair were created by Plastik. (see for linkie to main store below)

It seemed that ALL of the landmarks were extremely packed at the time and yeah, if I saw, “The sim is full” ONE MORE TIME… I was gonna scream, it wasn’t as bad as Truth’s SALE sim, but yeah, I could only hit a couple of the Landmarks.

     This first picture was taken at the Valley of IshNar which is apparently for the Key of Hope Hunt…. Totally looking forward to this, as I am a HUGE fan of Madpea’s hunts…. You can read all about it ->>HERE<<-  and it tells you HOW to play…. ->>HERE<<-  (goes searching for an outfit that makes her look all heroine like… woot woot!!)

The Valley was VERY empty at the time, and I had zero lag because of it!! 😀  so I was able to take a decent shot!!… *does the snoopy happy dance* (wow, didn’t even need my HUDDLE for that 🙂 )

OTHER

Horns:  !Cellar Door -Taela outfit, (L$100) (honestly, because I think these are great and that they worked with the look I had going ❤

Outfit:  Torvis Gorean Weapons – Lena Claws (skirt, bracelets, necklace, headband, and legband) ( I found this outfit in their 25 Linden Tuesday area, which is right outside their shop) (L$25)

I was able to get into Evensong Woods area at the Faire which is being sponsored by Roawenwood.  This area so reminded me of Kelethin which was from my days of playing the MMORPG Everquest (which was dubbed Evercrack by my family because I was so addicted it was crazy)  Like Kelethin the buildings rest way high in the trees and you walk on ramps to get from one to another.  The landscaping is extremely well done and I felt all elfie and fairy like 🙂

Now my fellow Fabulous ones….

Be aware and be forewarned,

You will spend money at this faire!!!

I ended up getting quite a few things from Roawenwood’s store at the Faire (all of these items benefit the Relay for Life of Second Life so totally for a good cause!  That’s my justification and I’m sticking to it /nod nod nod)  so I ran home in my Il’Khulthi skin and made a new area at  my house!!!   With a whimsical skybox, I placed my new finds, some old ones and I added an Intan Dance Ball, and *PRESTO* a great place to dance, and hang out listening to music 🙂

What I’m wearing (avie in the middle)
The Outfit: {RoawenWood} Zahrah in Violet [the RFL Exclusive Color] –  comes with the Bolero, the Sarouel pants, the Banded top (which has Lolas Tango appliers) Necklaces, Circlet, Armbands, Anklets, Bracelets, Earrings and Belts… (it moves perfectly, and fit me like a glove)

Roawenwood also gave me the opportunity to pull out my little petite avatar and dress her all  pretty like with these two fairy outfits…

The Petite Empress in Ice Blue and in Black (Both of these outfits come with tiaras, staves, wings (both scripted and non-scripted), bracelets, and they both come with Tango appliers, which you can barely see on me because I keep mine small!! *laughs*)

The Yuale Nura Wintertide Throne Set is pretty much the bulk of my scene here. (This comes with this stone dragon throne ottoman itself (which has built in animations in the pillows for male/female/couple) , a wrinkled well textured rug and this amazing flowing drapery with the wispy purple flowered covered pillars and the twisted brazier with blue flames…

The Yuale Nura Twisted Roots Lantern has these cute fairy lights that seem to dance around it, plus it gives off light! (go figure huh?) I love the wood texture of it and the very fantasy feel…

BlogPost4_a

Hello hello all you fabulously beautiful people…   It was a warm lovely day today here in my real world, so  after a long bout of sleep, I was able to crawl out of my bed go for a walk and then come home and find you all some goodies 🙂

Here are today’s finds….

BlogPost4_d    I stopped by The Fantasy Market and found this Lucky Board…. It had a big “C” on it when I saw it and immediately SMACKED it…. *laughs* Obviously, I took the picture after that…. (searches around… “Anyone with a J???”)  I think it is sooooo cute… nod nod nod…  I’m sure it will look even better on you 😉
I also found a few gift boxes laying around on the floor in May’s Soul store and decided I was going to go find a great place to snap a picture of a couple of them for you all..

I headed over to Roawenwood, who always decorates their sim beautifully.  (I like to swing by there and see what new stuff they have and if they are in any hunts, because their stuff is great.)  I went ahead and snapped a couple of pictures for you 😀
BlogPost4_b

While I was standing here, trying to snap the picture, my FabFree group sent out a notice from N@N@ giving away this fancy upper arm bracelet. You can get it as well if you join the group, and check the notices for today (041713) it has a : ) as the title… which is completely appropriate since it brought a smile to my face the moment I put it on.
