Snow Gothic and Mage Red Makes for Perfect [Z]xen

I first fell in love with everything “Gothic” when I was eight years old. My babysitter was a teenage girl of about fifteen and my parents had gone out for “kid free” time, and she was doing her homework and reading Edgar Allen Poe’s “The Raven” to me. After that I was hooked.

And then she let me read over her shoulder, and I read, “For Annie” for the very first time as well. Perhaps “For Annie” is not about Vampires at all… but I thought it was! And even at the tender age of eight, I wanted to be a vampire!

“Thank Heaven! the crisis —
The danger is past,
And the lingering illness
Is over at last —
And the fever called “Living”
Is conquered at last.”

[from “For Annie” by Edgar Allen Poe]

I think that is why the ensemble that I put together this week really appeals to me! [MC] Mystic Canvass is — first, and foremost — a fabulous one-stop-shop if you are looking for quality Roleplay skins that won’t break your pocketbook. Many of them are priced at only 99L$ for a full pack, and that includes a bonus shape as well as Lolas and/or other great appliers. The store also has a terrific variety of affordable cosmetics and mesh accessories that are out-of-this-world unique. And with this gorgeous Skin as their current FREE Group Gift (Group is 0L to Join!) coming in 4 skin tones with Lolas, Phat Azz, and Slink Appliers? How can a classic Gothic Vampire girl like me go wrong?!

Of course, I did not want to be a glittery vampire! No! No Twilight sparklers here! Growing up, I wanted to know Dracula and Dark Shadows and vampires like Louis de Pointe du Lac. I wanted pale skin, red lips, crimson eyes, blood that ran cold, and a heart that was colder! Because somehow… I thought it was like being a thorned rose — the ultimate thing of danger… power… and beauty. And yes… even as a tender young girl of only eight years old, I knew it.

“My tantalized spirit
Here blandly reposes,
Forgetting, or never
Regretting its roses —
Its old agitations
Of myrtles and roses:”

[from “For Annie” by Edgar Allen Poe]

So I pulled up Market place for a little help in completing my classic Vampire look — one I was sure would make Bram Stoker himself proud!

I didn’t manage to find a proper Edgar Allen Poe raven that suited me, but this amazing fitmesh dress by +Nocturna+ features a detailed owl print that is a stand-out and the dress pack includes both fitmesh as well as standard mesh sizes and can be found on the Marketplace for only 10L. A little more searching and I was able to complete my Gothic beauty with a set of Mage Red eyes by Imperium which were also found on the Marketplace (a steal of a deal for eyes this sharply detailed at only 9L$!) and last but not least I topped it off with an intricately wrought necklace in black by ~Edenia — another great FREE find on the Marketplace!

Dreaming in Blue

Happy Friday, Fab Free Folks!  I’m popping on to show y’all a Fifty Linden Friday item so this is gonna be quick! *waves to Kimmie Banufong* Thanks for the tip!

Hunt_001

First, the shoes. These are the Gabby Plats Heel for SLink ( and Belleza and  Meitreya AND The Mesh Project) High Feet from Reign. For this Friday special you can grab the fatpack for just 50L. I love the lace overlay detail, it’s so unusual and it’s really well done here.  But if you want it you need to hurry!

Second, is this gorgeous dress from More Than Ever. This is the ‘Blue Forest’  dress and it’s MTE’s prize for us girls in the 1L Midsummer Night’s Dream Hunt. There is a matching loincloth/ kilt for the guys in the prize box too and it’s… very smexy! *waggles her eyebrows*  All of the Hunt’s items are inspired by fantasy and fairies but this fluttery summer dress is too pretty to only have one label. Wouldn’t this be perfect for a day in the park or a warm summer evening’s outing?  Unlike the heels, you have until July 21 to get your Hunt on and scoop up all the 1L prizes!

Garden Party

Hello again, FabFree Floks. I don’t know about where y’all are but our temperature is somewhere between OMG and WTF. Yeah, it’s hot. And the best thing on a hot day? A huge glass of ice cold sweet iced tea.  If you can’t get that then some Sweet Tea might be the next best thing.

sweettea_001

This is the Summer Mini from Sweet Tea and it one of the group gifts set out for us. The group costs 50L to join but you’ll make that back right away with the eleven gifts available. This cool shorty sundress comes with a HUD with four really cute color/patterns. I picked this aqua blue because it just felt so summery. Plus, it went perfectly with the aqua and white platform sandals for SLink Flat feet from 2pm’s  Raki Ribbon Platforms gacha machine at Kustom9.  The gacha has ten commons in ice cream colors and two rares that are white soles with color HUDs for the straps.  Kustom9 runs until July 10 but don’t delay.. the date will creep up faster than you realize.

Timeless Classics

Timeless Classics

Timeless classic, the little black dress!

MoDANNA has a new FREE GG that has answered our need for the little black dress.

Just a tiny warning I did find myself having to use the M vs my usual S in this sharp little curve hugging mesh number. The cleavage on this dress is most likely a bit much for most of you ladies so any system layer tank, top or even bra finishes this look off nicely.

I myself used Happy Undead-Tank top (pack 1) I found on mp to finish off my look. You get 11 colors on system layers (shirt, undershirt, jacket), Lolas, Slink, Maitreya and Omega appliers all for the very reason price of 25L. I saw this as a great investment as these will come in handy under lots of mesh clothes or just worn by themselves. Along with a little black dress ever girl needs a good basic tank and this fits that bill to a T.

I went with all good basics you can use over an over today, last is this stylish tote bag thats a FREE GG at ::K:: It actually comes with 3 bags plus each have a HUD. You can get a good look here with the creators pic I am including.

::K:: New Group Gift ☻

P.S One last basic is my FREE Izzie’s Stand Still Pose Hud. Striking a pose never goes out of style!

WAIT!

I almost forgot the most timeless classic of all, Dads!

Father’s Day is this Sunday.

Of course you need a dress to wear to Sunday brunch with Dad.

Run over and grab  Kaithleen’s FREE GG and it may even give Dad a chuckle.

When we walked in fields of gold

Hello and Happy Friday, FabFree Folks! Friday’s festivities for me today started at the fair… the Kustom9 fair to be factual. It was a first for me and I was not frustrated or foiled! In fact, I was fired up with all the financially frugal fantastic finds!

zenith_Blog

whew… okay, that’s out of my system…  Zenith, a designer I am always excited to see at an event, has a gorgeous summery gacha set at Kustom9 this round. This is the ‘Blue Flowers’ summer dress, one of the commons in the gacha.  I love the soft feminine sundress, it has an almost gauzy look to it, perfect for those hot summer days. The cute hair band is another common and it comes in packs of four so you don’t end up playing onesy twosy trying to pull one color out of twenty.

zenith_004

I don’t normally add handbags to my outfits but this one is just too cute to leave out. This is the ‘straw handbag-milk’ also in the Zenith gacha. Each bag comes with a different colored scarf tied to the handle and a hold animation.  Rounding out my accessories are my new white sandals from Lindy’s Modern and Retro Shoes. These are the ‘Chelsea’  sandals for system feet and they are part of the 0L  ‘Advanced or Casual Hunt’ from Fi’s Hunts.. This is Lindy’s ‘casual’ prize.

Kustom9 runs until July 10th and the Advanced or Casual Hunt runs until June 30th

The Birds and the Bs

Hey there, Fab Free Folks! I have returned to the beach.. and no one can stop me! Muahahaha…*ahem*…. Anyway….

MrsB_002

I found this super cute long tank over at Mrs. B’s Designs and I thought it would be perfect for my triumphant return to the beach. There are several styles on the rack to choose from but I loved this sweet ‘delicious’ cupcake design.  In fact, Mrs. B’s has a ton of summery tanks and tees for both the guys and the girls. Including a  special June promotion set of very sassy tees for a tiny little 5L each!  While you’re at Mrs. B’s, check out the poses and the pose gacha machines. The pose I’m using here is ‘Model #13′ and it came from one of the two single model poses  5L per play gacha. 5L per play… yes, you read that right. You can afford to go gacha crazy!

Till next time, my dears….  now where did I leave that mimosa….

Twinkle Twinkle Little Bat…. Or “We’re all mad here…”

“Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?”
“That depends a good deal on where you want to get to.”
“I don’t much care where –”
“Then it doesn’t matter which way you go.”

                                                   ~ Lewis Carroll, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland

littleBat_003

Like the Cheshire Cat’s quote, no matter where you go in the Alice’s Adventures in Sexyland Fair, you’re going to find something fun, outrageous and just a little smexy.  This is the ‘Cheshire’ set  from The Little Bat.  The corset and skirt come in four iconic themes from Alice in Wonderland: The Queen, The Guard, The Hatter and The Cheshire ( which I’m wearing today) Each outfit comes with both the corset and the skirt as separates making them nicely versatile.  The Little Bat has also set out the cute “Drink Me” bottle necklace as a 1L gift. And if all that wasn’t enough, there are also two gahca machines at TLB: the “Elegant Bow” I’m showing and a matching “Elegant Chocker” both for 50L per play.

LitteBat Collage

7 Deadly Skins has also set out a nifty free gift for us. This is the “Patience” makeup on a tattoo layer. I love the soft lavender eye shadow  and the understated lip color.  Completing my look today is La Boheme’s fair gift for SLink nails: “LB Deco Fleur’ for just 1L.

The “Alice in Sexyland” Fair runs until June 26th so grab this taxi and head on over!
