The Ringmaster & His Apprentice


The Ringmaster and his Apprentice

Hello Fab Free, step right up! The Ringmaster and his lovely apprentice welcome you to the circus, or more accurately, the blog! You guessed it, I’ve teamed up with that man of mine again to bring you some fabulous finds. This time we did a bit of the Jester’s Revenge Hunt and picked up the male and female hunt prizes at Mishmash. The Jester’s Revenge Hunt is a free hunt, and it lasts until April 30th.

Though definitely not your typical everyday wear, I thought these free matching outfits by Mishmash were a lot of fun. They would be great for roleplay, or themed parties. Each of the outfits is a separate prize. You’ll be hunting a little gold nugget. Both outfits come in several sizes. The men’s suit also includes an alpha layer.

Men’s Sizes Included: Adam, Aesthetic, Belleza Jake, Signature Gianni, Slink Male, TMP, Standard Mesh (xs-XL)

Women’s Sizes Included: Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Maitreya Lara, TMP, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus)

M Hint – Zilla has a joke for you

F Hint – Perhaps I can give you a hand

P.S. Make sure you check out Blue’s credits for some freebie finds for the guys!

Here are the details!

Not a Morning Person

Not a morning person

We all have little secrets. I guess one of mine is: I hate mornings. I mean I loath them. If I could be nocturnal, I would be one happy man. Most of my mornings are spent stumbling around looking for coffee.  And avoiding morning people…

Comfort

The best thing about mornings is getting to stay in pajamas while I’m stumbling around looking for coffee. Happily, Horr Men’s Wear has me covered. These are the simply named “Pajama Bottoms” for the Dirty Little Secret Hunt by Horr Men’s Wear. They are especially nice if you are looking for something comfortable yet not scruffy. Plus, they are only one linden and a little hunting. Perfect for a lazy morning.

Sizes Included

  • Aesthetic
  • Adam
  • Belleza
  • Classic Mesh XS-XL
  • Signature
  • SLink
  • TMP

A Boho Babe

Spring morn

Hullo there, Fabulous Readers!  I was still feeling the boho vibe when I got up this morning, so I figured it was a great time to share another of the hunt prizes I picked up while traveling down the path of The Boho Hunt.   Just like the shorts in my last post, this hunt item cost only 1 Linden dollar.

Blame It On My Gypsy Soul

The adorable top in my photo can be yours if you uncover the miniature white llama hidden in the Trashed store.  Featuring spaghetti style straps, a cropped hemline and an arrow decorated with a pretty floral and feather motif, the Boho Babe top is sure to be a warm weather favorite.  I really like its muted color scheme, so I decided to pair it with a simple pair of white capris to create a clean, casual outfit, perfect for a walk on a misty morning.  I’m sure it would look just as fantastic with jeans, shorts or a skirt.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Ebody Classic
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin Classic
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

Until my next post, happy hunting!

The Magic of a Red Dress

Hey You With The Red Dress On

Happy Weekend, Fab Free! I hope you are finding time to relax and take it easy. Ripley and I discovered a new-to-us store this week called Celestinas Weddings. The generous designer is currently offering this stunning outfit as a free gift to members of the Celestinas group, which is free to join. Everything I’m wearing in my photo, from the gorgeous diamond earrings to my high heels, is included in the gift, plus a really pretty bouquet to hold that I chose not to wear for my pic.

Everything for Free

Although this looks like a gorgeous gown, Valentina is actually composed of two separates – a lacy, long sleeved top and an elegant, full length, curve-hugging skirt. The crimson-hued fabric of the skirt has a slight sheen and is accented with lighter red areas which resemble drops of dew on rose petals. I love the look of the slightly flared hemline, which sweeps just above the floor. The sheer top features a scalloped edge. The two components pair beautifully together, but can also be mixed and matched with other items in your wardrobe. Large, dangling heart shaped diamond earrings and delicate gem studded heels, also tucked into the gift folder, complete the look. A bouquet of roses and babies’ breath tied with a simple red ribbon can be added to your left hand if you so desire. To pick up a copy of this free ensemble for yourself, teleport over to Celestinas Weddings, activate the group tag, and tap the vendor.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza Freya and Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass

Until my next post, happy shopping!

Kissmas Time is Here

Kissmass Time is Here

The idea of the Mistletoe is one that I find rather appealing.  I mean, a plant that causes people to kiss if they pass underneath it?  How romantic (and utterly bizarre) is that?  You guys know me, if something is even slightly quirky I get a little bit overexcited about it.  I found a great (and nontypical) look for your holiday parties!

The Queen of all You’ve Seen

My sultry red bodysuit is a free group gift under the Christmas Tree over at Queenz!  I love the cutouts and velvety finish of it, as well as the added belly chain.  It’s different and festive all at the same time.  There are a couple of gifts under the tree at Queenz, so join their group for free and pick up all the delightful goodies!

Sizes

  • Ebody Curvy
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Katena
  • Maitreya

Carry it with You

Mistletoe that follows me around?  I can’t say “YES” fast enough!  I got my super cute headband over at Gable.  I joined their group for free and now I’ve got people making pouty lips at me wherever I go!  I haven’t decided if this is a blessing or a curse yet, but I look super adorable so I’m going with blessing for now.  Head on over to Gable and grab yours!

Happy Kissmas!

Walking in Luane’s Winter Wonderland

Hello there Fabulouses! Imeka has a sweet new group gift set out for their inworld members!

Taking a Snow Day

My new pup and I are taking a little walk through Luane’s World where the snow has freshly fallen.  Well… one of us is walking anyways!  It was the perfect excuse to wear my new Winter Dress Coat that I had picked up at Imeka as a free group gift.  The Winter Dress Coat is fitted for Maitreya and was made with real attention to detail as you can see in the wooden buttons, satin bow at the waist and fur collar.  The Imeka inworld group is just 1L to join.  Amazing deal if you ask me!  I have included the vendor ad below so you can see a full front photo of this item.

Christmas Lights All Over Town

The Lights Have a Mind of Their Own

The pupster and I picked up a couple of more hunt items that really got me into the holiday spirit.  I was even motivated to dig out the box of Christmas lights and start decorating.  Notice I said “start.”  Those string lights must have spent all summer knotting themselves up inside their storage container.  Last year, when I put them away, they were neatly coiled.  I don’t know what happened… all I can say is those things have a mind of their own.  It took quite awhile to get the whole mess untangled.  Well, at least I had my wrap top and ribbon choker to keep me looking beautiful in the midst of the snarled jumble.

The Colors of the Season

I just love the bright contrast between red and green in my new Rhea Wrap Top that I picked up over at [QE] Designs.  This fabulous prize from The Gingerbread Men and Hot Cocoa Hunt set me back just 1 Linden dollar, plus a bit of searching time.  I’m all about hunting down delicious gingerbread cookies (yum!), and when I can scoop up budget friendly goodies as well as cookies, you can count me in!  Featuring long sleeves, a cropped hemline and a curve-hugging wrapped design, this little number is full of holiday cheer.  The package also includes a texture change HUD, which enables you to select a cotton or knit fabric as well as to customize the color on each half of the shirt.  You can have one side red and the other green as I have done, or you can have a solid green or solid red color scheme.  It’s great to have options!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • eBody Curvy
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Tonic Curvy
  • Tonic Fine
  • Venus

Jingle Belles

My Jingle Belle necklace from Cog and Fleur offered the chipper tinkling of a trio of jingle bells as I struggled to unravel the stubborn string of lights.  The Gingerbread Men and Hot Cocoa Hunt gift also included a coordinating pair of earrings that I opted not to wear for my photo.  This bauble set will provide the ideal finishing touch for your outfits throughout the holiday season.  To add this jewelry set to your collection, all you have to do is teleport to the shop, locate the cookie concealed inside, and pay one Linden dollar.

Now that I’ve finally unscrambled the unruly lights, I’d better finish what I started and get to work hanging them up.  Until next time, happy hunting!

Dance With Me?

Dance With Me

Hello Fabulouses!  Stan and I teamed up to do some hunting along the Candy Cane 10 Hunt trail and found a really cute matchy-matchy prize over at MishMash Fusion.  We just had to celebrate by teleporting off to the Let it Snow sim for a romantic dance.  I really love the red candy cane stripes on both my dress and Stan’s vest.  They are just so bright and cheerful!  If you are looking for a coordinated outfit to wear with your significant other to a holiday party, this might be just up your alley!

On Her:  The Sweetest Frock

My Rocketpop Dress offers a full skirt for elegant swirls on the dance floor as well as halter style neck straps that are reminiscent of holiday ribbons.  Cherry colored buttons, a red sash around the waist and a red and white hemline complete the look.  The package includes versions for mesh avatars as well as sizes for classic avatars, so you’re sure to find the perfect fit for you.  Since all you need to invest to pick up this party frock is a bit of time searching and two little Linden dollars, you’ll look like you spent a bundle, but will have plenty left in the coffers for all your holiday shopping.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layer)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • eBody Classic and Curvy
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

On Him:  A Dapper Suit

Stan’s Etienne Suit features a red shirt, white tie, striped vest and an elegant white color scheme.  The touches of crimson provide the perfect coordination with the Rocketpop dress without looking too overdone.  All the pieces are worn at once, so there is no fussing around trying to get the different elements to fit together.  With one click, you’ll be ready to sweep her off her feet.  Just like Kat’s prize, the package includes versions for Classic as well as a variety of mesh body styles, all for just two Linden dollars (and a bit of searching time).

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (no alpha layer)
  • Adam
  • Aesthetic
  • Gianni
  • Jake
  • Slink
  • TMP

We’re off to see what else we can discover as we continue down the hunt path.  The event lasts until December 25th and features stops at a variety of stores.  The pupster is hoping maybe there will be a box of Ripley snacks hidden somewhere along the way.  Luckily, I have a freshly baked batch waiting at home.  Until my next post, happy hunting!
