Not Your Typical Tinkerbell

In lore… the fairies were not people you messed with. Ever heard the saying “Don’t piss off the fairies.”? There was a reason! They were considered sinister, powerful… they were not your typical Tinkerbells of today’s movie making, that is for sure!

Not Your Typical Tinkerbell

When I came across the amazing FREE group gift (the group is FREE to join) by PixyStix for this month… I knew I was ready to put together a sinister winged faery of lore! This gift is incredibly generous, coming in not one… but five different tones, as well as so many different appliers that you will be able to apply to your heart’s content to just about anything. There are body appliers, soul uni ear appliers, butt appliers, boob appliers and head appliers too. You simply can’t go wrong with this fantasy skin! I included the advertisement below to show you the other shades (besides the blue that I’m sporting above) that are included in this wonderful gift.

Of course every sinister faery needs attire and wings. And I found a pretty (and inexpensive) in-store gacha at Sweet Lies that fit the bill. For just 30L per spin, I was able to pick up a fitmesh dress, a bracer/legwrap combo and a set of matching wings. I’ll admit, the Tinkerbell Gacha was addictive… and there is certainly nothing typical about the quality of these items. They are gorgeous! Get your gacha on at Sweet Lies!

A Tres Joli Diva

A Tres Joli Diva

Happy Sunday, Fabfree! I have two really great group gifts to tell you about this morning!

The White Armory has long put out a weekly group gift, changing it out each Sunday, but it’s been a while since I have shown a gift from there. This week’s gift inspired me don a pretty dress and remind you that this is a FREE group with weekly benefits well worth enjoying! This dress, called Tres Joli, is mesh in all the standard sizes, and was set out today for group members. Just pick it up FREE with your FREE group tag. It will be available until next Sunday, when a new group gift will take its place.

I paired my new dress with the newest FREE group gift from no.match… this gorgeous new hairstyle called No Diva! I love the long curled over the shoulder pony tail. And its a full fatpack of colors! You’ll need to join the group for this one. It’s a one time fee of 50L, but you’ll be getting this beautiful group gift, plus access to a large number of past group gifts that are still available!

Fly Away

Fly Away

I’m taking some time to relax now after a whirlwind tour of the Pick my Strawberry! Event. There are approximately 50 creators participating and if you stop by, you’ll find a little strawberry at each store’s booth, with a FREE gift! While there, I picked up a couple that I really found just as delightful as the theme:)

This beautiful white dress with its flared style skirt and sensual plunging neckline is the FREE gift from the FAIDA booth. Just buy the strawberry for 0L and this pretty dress is yours in all the standard mesh sizes.

Fly Away 2

I also found a couple of lovely gifts I couldn’t pass up at the Firefly booth. Buy the Firefly strawberry for 0L and you’ll get 2 FREE gifts… this intricately detailed blue and silver mesh hair comb, as well as this Black Birds tattoo for your back. The tattoo comes in a system layer as well as a Maitreya mesh body applier.

The event ends May 23rd, so don’t delay! Hurry over and Pick Your Strawberries!

I Heart Purple

I Heart Purple

It’s safe to say I love when a new PurpleMoon Creations group gift is released… and the Freda gown that is available now is no exception. This purple sequined beauty is amazing! It includes the main mesh dress which I’m showing you, plus several add ons — system and omega applier gloves, and a flexi skirt which I opted to leave off because I liked the sleek look of the skirt without it.

This dress comes in all the standard sizes, plus standard fitmesh sizes, as well as Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink. The PurpleMoon group costs 50L to join, but you’ll see regular group gifts for your fee (and this one gift alone is well worth that sum!).

I Heart Purple 2

I always try to add a little sparkle to my outfits with jewelry. This dress didn’t need much, but I found what I was looking for at Zuri Rayna. Just not exactly in the form I expected! The SL Frees & Offers group gift there (the group is FREE to join) is a FREE belly piercing! But…. a little imagination had me imagining this Chantelle’s Heart Belly Piercing as a pair of earrings.

To get the same look, you’ll need to make a copy of the piercing and then use the ‘attach to’ option in your inventory to attach one to your avatar’s right ear and one to the left. Then resize each new “earring” by downsizing it 20%. Edit the new “earring” into its proper place and voila! You could always wear it as a Belly piercing too of course, just be sure to make one extra copy that you don’t edit!😉

Sweet May

Sweet May

I hope the month of May has been sweet to you. We’ve passed the half-way mark now! It’s hard to believe we’ll be moving into the hotter summer months soon. But I think I’m ready with this pretty sun dress from that is the May group gift from Glitterati.

I love the classic waist styling and floral hem of this dress, as well as the scalloped neckline which are perfect for spring’s last fling and even for moving into hotter summer months. It comes in all the standard mesh sizes.

I was delighted to discover that NSP Florals has out a May gift that seemed to perfectly match my new dress. This little rose hair piece I picked up is beautifully detailed, and while I paired it with a sundress, I can see it working perfectly with a wedding dress in June. If you’re good at editing, you could attach this to the chest or spine and make it into a corsage instead. I can just imagine so many possibilities for this lovely rose beauty! Best yet, it comes with a color change hud that allow you to change the color of the roses to a variety of sumptuous colors! As of the time of this posting the NSP Floral Group is FREE to join, making this group gift FREE. However, group membership is usually 75L. I’m not sure how much longer the group fee will be set at 0L, so you should hurry if you want to get this lovely item as a FREE gift.

Sweet May 2

Tuesday

Happy Tuesday, FabFree-ers!

Tuesday

 

And you know what Tuesday means. It’s 25L Tuesday and I haven’t finished with the role playing. I found this lovey gown from Gor Gurls as their 25L offering : the ‘Gor Goes Pleated’. You get two versions of the dress for your 25L. One with the gold top I’m showing and one with a top that matches the main color of the dress. With eight jewel tone colors to choose from, I bet you’ll find one you love.  The dress comes in the standard Mesh sizes XXS-L and has a good alpha.

Just remember, all of the 25L Tuesdays items are specially priced just for today and go back to their original prices at midnight SLT.

Pearl Elegance

Pearl Elegance

A formal gown is always a staple in any lady’s wardrobe in Second Life… and a FREE formal gown is always a plus. When I saw the Stacie gown in coral at Finesmith, the most recent FREE group gift (the group is FREE to join), I knew it would be a dress that I would want to wear over and over.

This beautiful gown with its classic styling comes in all the standard sizes, as well as fitmesh, Maitreya, and Belleza. And the back is just as pretty as the front, with a scooped draping syling that is so lovely you’ll want an updo or a side-sweep hairdo to show it off.

Pearl Elegance 2

I knew that this dress called for special jewelry, so I was thrilled when I saw the May V.I.P. Gift at Ecco… a set of stacked pearls. You get both the necklace and the bracelets as part of the gift. I’ve always loved the classic look of pearls, and this set does it just right, plus you’ll get a hud that allows you to choose between classic white, or to change these to black pearls if you prefer. The group is 200L to join, but remember — you’ll be getting monthly group gifts, plus access to lots of past group gifts to make it worth your fee.

Trade Wind

Trade Wind

I found a set of his and hers gifts that are really just stunning. They remind me of early morning sunrises, warm beaches, love letters and all the good things in life. I know that definitions of happiness are different for everyone, but a great find of excellent clothes is surely a win either way:)

In the picture above, I’m showing you the Runway Perfect Hunt gifts from Miss Darcy’s. A little bit of hunting time at the main-store for the black and white prim, and just 5 little linden, will score you this beautiful his and hers set.

The lady’s dress includes the skirt and top (they are separate pieces) in all the standard mesh sizes. I love the details of the bow on the skirt, and the tied waist top. Alphas are included for standard avatars.

The men’s gift includes the matching pants and jacket in all the standard mesh sizes, as well as an optional system Tee shirt to wear under the jacket if desired.

The gifts come in one box, so no need for hunting down two separate hunt prims.

Fairy Tale

Happy Weekend, FabFree-ers!

Fairy Tale

If you are in the mood for some roleplaying this weekend here in Second Life, I may have found your new go-to costume. This is “Queen of Hearts” from MoonliteCat Creations and it’s the 1L prize for the Nightmares and Fairy Tales Hunt.  The top, with the attached arm bracers and collar, and the skirt are separate pieces and both come in the standard Mesh sizes – XS-XL. There are three alpha layers included: one for the top, one for the skirt and one for both pieces. I just love it when designers make a multi – piece outfit so darn versatile!

The Nightmares and Fairy Tales Hunt runs until May 31st but that is coming up quick so don’t delay!

Coquette

30L Saturday is always prime time to stock up on your roleplay wardrobe, and this Saturday was no exception! I found a couple of pieces that I fell in love with this morning and wanted to share with you!

Coquette

This Dionne Gown in Bronze is by Velvet Whip. I’m showing it to you without the optional scarf and undershirt, as I also picked up the silver owl Coquette necklace that you can see in the close-up below. The necklace is also from Velvet Whip. Each piece is only 30L each, and makes for a stunning addition to a medieval or gorean roleplay wardrobe.

The dress comes in all the standard mesh sizes as well as three fitmesh sizes, so you are sure to find a good fit. The necklace is copy and modify to allow for adjustments as well, making 30L a great price for this beautiful piece.

Be sure to hurry though, these deals are only for today!
