FabFree: Dracarys

Hey there Fabulouses!  Yesterday Juli blogged about some of the fun Enchantment Hunt prizes [HERE], but also for this round of Enchantment (The Iron Throne) are some really great GOT themed gacha prizes such as The Have Unequal Calla Set that you can complete in just three pieces!  I am excited to show off this gacha set because:

  • A.  Game of Thrones!!
  • B.  I am always excited when there is an affordable gacha set with decent pieces!
  • C.  Said gacha set allows you to complete the set with just commons in case you don’t pull a rare!

Mother of Dragons

I’ve put together a Daenerys look with the Calla Jacket, Pants and Boots in Brown which are all commons (playing for 74L each).  You can mix and match the colours if you like too!

Mother of Dragons

Mother of Dragons

*Sigh*…. Just thinking that Sunday isn’t Game of Thrones day anymore makes me sad. Love it or hate it, it was certainly a big part of TV history for eight years. Enchantment has a great way to say “Farewell” to one of our favorite shows with a FREE “Games of Thrones” Hunt. While I was hunting around a tumbled down castle, I found this egg. I think I’d make a great “Dragon Mom”! Now… how it hatch it…..

Simone

I found my lovely new hair hiding in one of the Hunt’s ‘Dragon Eggs’. This is “Simone” from DeLa. The back of the hair is beautifully coiled and the front strands just lay so pretty. Simone comes with a HUD with eighteen colors including some dip dyes so I imagine you can find a color to love.

My Little friend

I already have a little dragon… on my ear! MOoh is giving away these cute little dragon ear cuffs as their prize for the Enchantment Hunt. Each ear cuff can be resized and repositioned to fit perfectly which is great for those of us “differently eared”. You can also change the color of the metal and the color of the wings to match your taste.

Booted

My boots are also a free Enchantment Hunt prize. These are the “Calla Boots” from Have Unequal. I was really pleased with the high quality of these boots. The details and textures are spot on. I will be checking out Have Unequal from now on .

Sizes Included

  • Maitreya

Lucky Me

Even my top was free. But it isn’t one of the hunt gifts. This is the “Onyx Bruja” top from Oubliette and it’s a gift on the lucky boards. Just join the Petite Mort/Oubliette group and have a little luck for your letter to come up. The Oubliette group is free to join so you have nothing to loose and everything to gain!

Sizes Included

  • Maitreya

Egg Mom

Last, but not least, this sweet pose with a dragon’s egg is the Enchantment Hunt prize from Le Poppycock. “Protector of Dragons” comes with the green egg you see here. Just add the egg and you are ready to be a dragon Mom, or Dad, too.

One Ring to Rule Them All

One Ring to Rule them All

Ok Fab Free, brace yourselves because I’m about to reveal the depth and breadth of my nerdiness.  I am a MASSIVE Lord of the Rings fan.  I mean, like…super huge.  And I’m NOT talking about the movies (which were visually stunning but messed my fave story up!).  I have probably read the books about 20 times, and I can recite all sorts of things upside down and backwards, while muttering something about potatoes being the Gaffer’s delight.  Yup, I’ve finally revealed my true self to you all.  Anyone who was under the illusion that I was cool, welcome to the real world!

The Quest for the One Ring

Right, so I did have a point in revealing my love for all things Middle Earth.  The Enchantment hunt is going down right now all over the grid, and you have to keep an eye out for the One Ring!  I found two super awesome things in my journeys – my very Elven (ish) lingerie (sized for Maitreya) by Have Unequal is the first.  I feel that it wouldn’t look completely out of place in Lothlorien…well, at least in certain situations it wouldn’t!  The second item is my lovely tumbling curls by DeLa that I’m sure Arwen would be totes jelly of.  Best of all, the prizes are all FREE so you can gather your Fellowship of friends together and hunt down all the precious rings!  You can find all the hunt info HERE.

As they say in Elvish, “Elen sila lumenn omentielvo” – a star shines on the hour of our meeting.
Yup, totally a nerd.

Gone Glamping

Gone Glamping

I’m bundling up and ready for the gusty blasts that November are sending my way!  I still want to spend some time outside, of course – so I totally found the perfect outfit for a camping excursion out in the middle of nowhere! (And by camping, I mean pretending to be very woodsy while having literally no idea what I’m doing!)

Bundle Up

This really fantastic coat and top set come courtesy of Atik and is their newest group gift.  I joined the group for free and have literally been living in this duo since I picked it up!  Isn’t it brilliant?  It takes all the guesswork out of which layers may work together when it comes to coats and tops, and the detailing on it is top knotch.  A great addition to any inventory!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • XS – L

Strolling Up the Avenue

I needed a great pair of pants to go with my new top and coat – luckily The Beautiful Ones have got me covered.  I found their booth over at The Avenue event, and much to my delight there were free gifts to be had!  These corduroy pants are perfect for pretending you’re the outdoors type while still looking unfailingly chic.  Join The Avenue group for free, and pick these bad boys up!  There are a bunch of other gifts there too!  Woohoo!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

Now, which way to the hotel?

She’s A Rainbow

She's A Rainbow

Somewhere, over the rainbow…there’s a gorgeous outfit to be had for FREE!  Ok, well it’s not exactly over the rainbow, but it’s somewhere much easier to get to…

Sunshine, Lollipops and…

I stopped by The Liaison Collaborative event, and much to my delight I found that the designers have free gifts out for TLC’s anniversary!  Cute things abound, but I was particularly taken with this dress which is aptly named “Rainbows” by Neve.   I love the little lacing details up the side, but I’m absolutely falling for the rainbow hued skirt.  Pretty or what?  I paired the dress with this Ticket Clutch by Ersch, which makes me think of trips in the summertime to amusement parks.  I also topped off my whole look with this free hair by DeLa – space buns are so hot right now.  There are all sorts of different colours from the demure to the intense (hello hot pink!) to suit your every mood.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique

New City

Rainy Day_001

“There’s something about arriving in new cities, wandering empty streets with no destination. I will never lose the love for the arriving, but I’m born to leave.”
― Charlotte Eriksson

My friend and I went sim exploring and ended up at Tralala’s Diner. It’s this little city street with vendors and it’s raining hard and there is this urban “crunch” about it. It made me think of this quote about how I like to wander new places… but I never really intend to stay in them. I’m always bound to go home. That’s just who I am.

An outfit for the city…

I found a new outfit, perfect for visiting city streets at Barbed Wire Kisses, courtesy of the Cupid’s Conspiracy Hunt. All the gifts in this hunt are free so I picked this one up for 0L. You get the top and the skirt (you can wear them separately) in several mesh sizes to suit your needs. I like the details of the rivets and the buckles that I think make this outfit super sexy.

Dress mesh size compatibility:

  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Happy Birthday, Tres Chic!

The Tres Chic event is celebrating its 2nd anniversary this month, and all of the gifts are for YOU! You do need to join the Tres Chic in-world group, but it is free to join, and there are SO MANY awesome gifts!

So let’s get started! 😀

The Skin

First off, how gorgeous is this skin? It’s a different look for me, but when I tried it on, I thought it was so beautiful that I just had to share it with you.

The skin applier is the Tres Chic anniversary gift from PUMEC. It comes in this one tone and is for LeLutka mesh heads. AND… not only do you get the head applier, but you also get body appliers for Belleza, Maitreya, Slink, and Omega mesh bodies, system skin appliers, and Vista/Omega hand appliers. All of the body appliers include an option for “push-up,” if you’d like a little extra cleavage. 😉

The Hair

My hair is the Tres Chic gift from DeLa. It comes in fitted and regular mesh versions, and both have a materials option. A HUD with 18 different colors is included, and there is even a version for the fellas.

The Accessories

I fell in love with this CatchMe! necklace by E-Clipse as soon as I tried it on. It reminds me of a cross between an Irish Claddagh and a Game of Thrones Hand of the King pin. 🙂 A texture-change HUD containing 3 metal colors and 8 different stones is included.

Another Tres Chic gift is my Infinity Ring from Ec.cloth, which comes in versions for both Maitreya and Vista Bento hands. And yes, you get a texture-change HUD with this one too – 4 different metals are included.

Let's Play

But wait, there’s more!

The Glasses

Though you may not be able to see them very well, I’m actually wearing a pair of really pretty sunglasses in this picture. Petite Mort set out the Gold Lennon Round Specs as their Tres Chic anniversary gift. The lenses are just dark enough to add a bit of mystery and style to any outfit. There is no resizer, but you can edit > stretch if you need to change the size.

The Dress

Last, but definitely not least, is this super sexy linen dress from POSIE. The Alaia dress comes in sizes for Belleza Freya and Isis, Maitreya, and Slink mesh bodies. It is nicely textured and really hugs your curves in all the right places.

Head Over to Tres Chic!

The Tres Chic 2nd Anniversary round ends on June 5th, so don’t delay. There are still lots of people there, so wearing your “low lag” attire is advised (I wore a full body alpha like a ghost). 😉

Foot Prints

“It is inevitable that I will leave a legacy simply because I cannot walk through life without leaving footprints as I walk. Therefore, I would be wise to consider the path before I make the prints.” — Craig D. Lounsbrough

The Walk a Mile in My Shoes Hunt will be ending on February 29th. It’s a small hunt, but the prizes are amazing… if you haven’t jumped to a few of the spots to pick up the goodies yet, consider making a few stops. I dropped by free bird and Le Poppycock and Anachron and their generous gifts for this hunt got me to thinking about all of the ways that we touch others’ lives, sometimes without even realizing it.

Footprints 1

The Walk a Mile in My Shoes Hunt is a 10L hunt, and you are looking for a little red and black shoe. At free bird, your hunting will reward you with this simple but lovely framed wall art called “Leave Only Footprints.” It is no copy, but if you want more than one, for the tiny sum of 10L, you can buy the shoe more than once.

Le Poppycock is giving this beautiful pose with all the props (the stool, hold-able rose and Siamese cat, and the roses at your feet) for their 10L gift as part of the hunt. You actually do not have to rezz anything, which is a real bonus! You wear the stool to activate the pose (be sure to turn off your AO) and then ‘add’ the other parts of the pose. This means you’ll be able to use this pose with its props in world at just about any location for photos.

My dress is a stunner and can be yours for only 1L if you take a moment to do a bit of searching at Vindiktive as part of the Haunted Love Hunt. Stop by the main-store and look for the broken heart. This dress comes in all the standard mesh sizes as well as fitmesh, Maitreya, Belleza, and Slink.

Footprints 2

If you stop by the Shiny Shabby event to do some shopping, be sure to pick up some of the many amazing FREE gifts that creators are generously giving at the event this round. My lovely FREE hair by DeLa is a special Shiny Shabby anniversary gift with a special edition color hud in a variety of pink colors. This is a really soft and feminine hair and included in the gift pack was both a regular and busty fit.

Footprints 3

My Half Moon bracelets are also a clever find at Shiny Shabby. This fatpack was another FREE for all gift, this time from RAMA. I am showing them off in the silver and black, but the fatpack included 7 different color styles for you to mix and/or match with all your outfits. These are a lovely accessory!

And I also really wanted to show off a close up of my shoes. For a mere 10L in the Walk a Mile in my Shoes Hunt, you can pick up these incredibly creative sandals from Anachron. The style is impeccable and finding shoes this unique for a 10L price tag is an incredible deal. These shoes fit slink flat feet.
