The Morgana

The Morgana

Hello hello, Fab Fam! I’m going to make this quick because you only have today to scoop this deal up! Of course, I’m talking about 25L Tuesday! I do so love this sale. Especially now that we’re seeing more RP ad Fantasy items coming back.

Like this gorgeous gown from Lorien. This is the “Debrina” gown and it’s on sale for 25L today. The build itself is flawless, there are so many little details and textures. Be sure to turn on the high level light to see them all. You get the skirt, the corset and the sleeves as separate pieces so the gown can be dressed u or down as you see fit. I just love it.

Sizes Included

  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

I also grabbed some lovely makeup for 25L today too.  Stunner Original has four palates of lipsticks available for us. I chose “Linette” although… I may go grab the others cause… why not? There are 25 colors per palate so that’s just 1L per color!

And new lip color needs new eyeshadow, right? I really love the “Lana” eyeshadow set up for our 25L Tuesday from RavenCreation. I have a feeling I will be wearing these a lot!

Some Venders leave the 25L Tuesday sale up for a few days but don’t count on it. SO hurry over and get these quick!

One sweet day off

Sweet Day Off

Hello and happy Thursday, FabFam. And why you may ask is a plain ol’ Thursday worth celebrating? I’m glad you asked. 🙂  Because, it’s a good day with nothing to do. After the chaos of the hoidays, as fun as they are, it’s good to take a day off to relax. As much as I love dressing up, sometimes the day calls for something a bit more comfy!

Liiiike this cozy casual hoodie from Sweet Willows! Which you can get for free. Doesn’t it look like your favorite fleecey ‘day off’ top? The build is so good and the textures are awesome. I picked this gray camo pattern for the sleeves but you might like one of the other 16 textures from the included HUD.

All you need to do is wear your Fabulously Free Group Tag, which is free to join, and pop over to Sweet Willows and slap that board. While you’re there, take a look around for all kinds of deals. While wearing your group tag, you can get 50% off anything else at Sweet Willows.

New Year’s Fey

New Year's Fey

The first of the year always holds such promise. Happy New Year, FabFam. I hope this trip around the sun brings us all nothing but good things. Maybe to much to wish for.. but why not. Since I’m starting this year with a fantasy… I’m going full wild Fey RP today. with the help of 25L Tuesday, of course.

First is this new body suit from Scarlet Fey. I like them already with “Fey” in the name. And they have certainly given us a gorgeous build for the 25L Tuesday Sale. This is “Gwath”. I am just in awe of the details on the leather work. Each piece is beautifully scrolled with patterns. It shows best in the advanced lighting but even the lower lights will still show off the work.

One note -> I put on a pair of leggings with the body suit… since I was going riding.

Sizes Included

  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

My metal work armbands are also a 25L Tuesday find. These are the “Woven Armbands”  from On a Lark. OAL always has something cool for the 25L Tuesday Sale and this week is no different. These bands are so detailed and well made. You also get a HUD to choose one of five metal colors. I’m wearing the onyx color today.

As always, 25L Tuesday runs until midnight tonight. However some designers leave their sales items up longer. But if you want ’em… go grab ’em quick!

54 Reasons to be happy

54 reasons to be happy

Hello hello, Fab Fam! I hope ya’ll had a wonderful holiday with family and friends and fun festivities. We had a quiet little Christmas here at home but it was still a lovely time.

Now I know that the big day of gifting is over but we have SO many things still going on in SL. Like the 54 event headed up by LeLutka. See what I did there? 😛  As Ms Aline showed us, Lelutka is giving away two gorgeous full version mesh Heads: Raven and Quinn. And I got all inspired to make a totally FREE avatar with only things off the 54 list.

Remember our kids, Kerydwyn and Alistar from the “Makeover Mondays” posts? I rounded them up again to make fresh new avis! Let’s start with Kerydwyn since the list is mostly female oriented. As per last time, Kerydwyn is wearing the free version of the Legacy Classic mesh body and it’s the only thing I didn’t get off of the 54 Event list. I will be doing a guys only post tomorrow with Alistar using the 54 List.

Lots of designers are offering their take on the Raven head, in fact most of the skin gifts included their own face shape and brow shape. I picked the “Nicole” shape and skin from Clef De Peau. And believe me, it was hard to pick just one shape from all the gorgeous one on the list. The Nicole shape will shape your entire body not just the head for a nice cohesive look.

I also ended up wearing the Nicole “RoseKiss” skin from Clef De Peau made to match the Velour skin tones. It’s such a nice fresh faced skin with subtle details and a sweet glow to it. I did however love many of the other skins. There’s a skin for just about everyone here. From super vampire pale to deep exotic darks. In fact, Moccino’s gift is all shades of delicious browns and ambers and Nuve has ten fantasy colored skins too!

The body skin is from Velour and as always it’s a stunning creation. Velour is giving out full body skins for Legacy and Reborn. This is the “Venus Athletic” design body skin, “RoseKiss”. I love when designers collaborate and make for the shades offered by other designers. But, if you need a neck blender, I HIGHLY recommend the free fixes from Bold & Beauty which is another free gift on the 54 List.

EDITED to add -> I do apologize, the neck fixes are contained in the gift for “Nicholas”. While that gift is free, the fixes are designed for male skins/anatomy. So your mileage may vary

Now on to eyes. This is the “Mistletoe Collection” from Gloom. It’s a nice little fatpack of eye colors ranging from blue to brown and a neat half and half colored one. The gift includes BOM versions and appliers for LeLutka and Omega.

There are several designers offering hair bases for the List but my favorite is this sleek style from Not Found. This designer is offering a collaboration with Doux for this event. The hair bases lines up with a super long pony tail which you pick up at the Doux shop. As you can see, I skipped the pony tail and went with a sweet bow and bun. “The Gift Hair” from Studio Exposure comes with a HUD for 8 colors of ribbon and 33 hair colors for the bun. Plus you get the cute little flexi bangs too.

Last but certainly not least are the beautiful earrings from Andore. These are the “Igdry” set. In the gift you’ll find  pairs for both LeLutka Evo X human ears and the Elf ears and a HUD to change both the gem colors and the metals. Not little HUDs either… HUDS with 7 metals and 10 colors of gems. There are also a pair of free Christmas earrings at Andore too!

So there she is! A full avatar for free! Now is a great time to get a top of the line mesh head and skins, shapes and makeup and hair from some of SL best designers. Lookin’ like champagne on a beer budget!  The 54 Event requires you to join each designers Group to grab the gifts but all the groups are set to free. This is a great time to get in those groups that may be too expensive at other times of the year. And be sure to look around each shop. Many have loads of free group gifts out as well as the 54 List ones. I was able to pick up a ton of free eyeshadows and lipsticks as well as other skins.

And one last note. I did not edit the shape you see at all. I simply wore what the designers gave us. That said, the shapes are modifiable! So find one you like and use it as a base or a starting point to design your own look if you don’t like the “right out of the box” look.

The 54 Event only runs until Dec. 30th! That’s just a few more days to get your hands on all the wonderful gifts! Here is a quick link to the page from Lelutka that lists all the stores and has direct Teleports.

Fey Holiday

Fey Holiday

Hey There, Fab Fam! Of course, you’ve all seen that there are Advent Calendars all over Second Life right now. In fact, we’ve got our huge list of a ton of those calendars listed and linked right here on our very own blog. I hope ya’ll are taking full advantage of it! 

I was lucky enough to find yet another Advent that should not be missed. Especially if you love fantasy and role play. I’m talking about the calendar at Petrichor. There’s no group needed and all the past gifts are priced at just 1L each! I picked this gorgeous gown, “Eres Holli” it comes with a HUD to hide and show various parts of the gown such as the harness. I also grabbed these stunning fairy wings! “Dene” wings are unrigged and resizable to get a great fit. Last but not least, is the “Crystalle” horns with all these beautiful gems stones and chains. I am in love with the whole Christmas but not In-Your-Face Christmas look. Well… that and being a Fey with my wings out! 😉

The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

Ok Fabs!  Hunker down because I’m about to tell you a thing.  I hate changing my head/body/skin/etc.  I know, I know.  That’s part of the beauty of SL, you can look however you like.  However, I really love the way I usually look.  My old head may be *quite* old now, but she just makes me happy, ya know?  Also, I just have a deep distrust of changing the way I look… don’t get me started on BOM.  I am a bit old school, it is true.  So, when I set out to show off the new free LeLutka heads (!) it was with a bit of apprehension.  So, the moral of what I’m trying to blather on about is… If I can do it, so can you.

Yes, TWO!

If you haven’t heard by now, LeLutka are doing it up in grand style this year with yet another TWO free mesh heads with ALL the bells and whistles.  They kept this amazing gift on the downlow for so long, we had all but thought it wasn’t happening for the third year running.  BUT, here we are, and I am exuding gratitude for yet another HUGE and AWESOME gift.  I love that the gentlemen haven’t been forgotten either, because we know they so often are.  I grabbed my partner Oov, and we tinkered for just a little bit.  There was a bit of grumbling at which Alpha I was supposed to wear, but in under 10 mins we were looking pretty spiff.  SO… again, it may be scary, but it is doable.  Just save your previous self, so you can jump right back into it after if you’re overwhelmed.  Anywhos, the free Lelutka heads… there are three locations to grab these gifts.  Just join the free Lelutka group, activate the tag and jump on over.  Click away, and they’re yours.  You may have heard in my post yesterday that 53 OTHER designers are also giving away all sorts of free gifts to go with.  You can find all the details about who else is participating HERE.

Christmas Snow

Snow for Christmas

Oh Shop and Hop, welcome back you sexy beast! I know there are a lot of complaints about “it’s too big” or “it’s too crowded”. But how you complain about all the free gifts?? I sure can’t! I mean, look at this cute outfit I was able to make…. all for free!

The cozy white sweater dress is from Midna and it’s called “Cozy”.  I really love the heavy texture and the soft cream color. And doesn’t it go well with the “White Beret” from Belle Epoque? The pretty little topper only comes in the white color but it’s fully adjustable and resizable for a perfect fit.  And what would Christmas be without a little magic? Like this holdable snowflake from Celesta. The flake spins and throws off tiny snowflakes. So pretty!

Sizes Included (Midna Cozy Dress)

  • Legacy
  • Maitreya + Petite

The Holiday Shop & Hop is running all the way till January 2 so you’ve got some time to go gather up all those gifts!
