Beyond Time

Hi There Fab Free’rs! I don’t know about you, but now and then I could use some fantasy and whimsy in my life, especially when Second Life makes it so easy. The above photo was completely inspired by the Women’s Stuff Hunt prize at Ohemo. The floral jewelry set is their free Women’s Stuff Hunt gift, and I’m super excited to share it with you. The pose used is another freebie, it’s part of the Lyrium gift at the Pose Fair. Keep reading for all the information and details.

Yes, the full jewelry set is a free Women’s Stuff Hunt prize at Ohemo. Find the little red tshirt, and pay it 0 linden, and the hunt prize will be delivered to you. This gorgeous set includes the earpiece for both ears, headband, and necklace, all with a color change hud that has quite a few color options for the flowers, three choices for the headband, and the option to pick gold or silver for the metal bits.
Ohemo - Myranflower set (SL-Womenstuff hunt May 2019)

If you haven’t made your way to the Pose Fair yet, I highly suggest you go. Along with the pose used in the above photo, Lyrium has 2 full sets of poses as a free gift to the Pose Fair group members. The group is free to join. The part I like the most (aside from the nicely done poses for free!) is that the poses also come in a hud. This means you can wear the pose hud and cycle through the poses without having to rez a pose ball or dig through your inventory. There are 5 poses in this “Heavenly” set, with mirrored versions for each. Additionally, there is a second set of poses with this gift called “Falling.” Seriously, do not miss out on this awesome gift!

The Winter Fae

Starry Winter Fae_001

“Hello darkness, my old friend
I’ve come to talk with you again
Because a vision softly creeping
Left its seeds while I was sleeping…” ~ from Sounds of Silence

This winter fae skin makes me think of dark winter nights despite her white features, blue lips, and the white tears that come from white shadowed eyes. She is a beauty bathed in light, tormented by the dark nights of winter.

And she’s all yours for…

free. As part of the Women Only Hunt, provided by Avada, you can have the beautiful Winter Fae Skin for yourself free. Included in this beautiful gift are multiple head and body appliers.

Winter Fae Head Appliers:

  • Catwa
  • Omega

Winter Fae Body Appliers:

  • Maitreya
  • Omega
  • Belleza
  • Physique

More winter hunting…

I was with my hunting partner again, and he led me to Juno Artistic Tattoo, and we both agreed that the free POE hunt gift there was perfect for this skin. Go figure… I’m wearing ink in another post! But this beautiful snowflake, stars, and blue twinkle light studded tattoo is a perfect winter compliment to the Winter Fae skin and adds just a touch of color to the otherwise white canvas of this lush skin.

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 Cascade of Magic

Sometimes a little fantasy pick-me-up is just the thing to make your day… and today I felt like making a little magic! I picked up a few things around the grid sure to make any role player’s day a bit more magical, and I’m here to let you in on the magician’s secrets!

Right now if you stop by [EvelineInTheBox], the creator’s February gift is out. It is this lovely Thyri Cascade dress in mesh (all the standard sizes) that is really just fantastic. I love the way the dress curves around my avatar’s body! It is FREE to group member and the group is FREE to join, making this lovely gift a sweet deal!

A Cascade of Magic

Remember that Alice Project is still hosting their Winter Project! Today I stopped by to pick up this hair called Amy in the Winter Shimmer version… which is the VIP members’ gift. This is FREE to VIPs. The group is 750L to join but there are always TONS of amazing offers. There is also a FREE pack out for nonmembers, so it’s still very worth your time to stop by and pick up the giftie even if you are not a VIP member.

My roleplay character Astrid is a fey who does light and magic using staffs… so when I saw this crystal staff at A.D.D.Andel! I fell in love! It is only 50L per spin at the in-store gacha and there are lots of beautiful staffs in the machine. These are even modifiable, so I was able to make mine have a bit of a glow to better fit how I envisioned my character. Love, love, love this!

Of Fairies, Ladies, and Crypts

The spirits of ladies on lakes and fairies wander freely… the moon shines and though you know you should be afraid… you can’t help but feel enchanted instead. And it all begins with a few pumpkins left out for the picking by the Fantasy Creator’s Showcase Event at the Rising Phoenix Sim

Of Fairies, Ladies, and Crypts [1]

“All the ancient classic fairy tales have always been scary and dark.” – Helena Bonham Carter

And the Creator’s Showcase Hunt got this idea just right with their fantastic gifts. There are 13 pumpkins hidden on the sim — actually they are all out in plain sight. Some of the stores have one pumpkin at their stalls. A few of them have two. All of them are easy to see and you just buy the contents for FREE. A trick not a treat!

In the picture above Astrid is wearing the Autumn Fae costume (complete with wings) by BlueMoon Enterprises. This Creator Showcase Hunt Pumpkin Gift is FREE and includes the full outfit in all the standard mesh sizes plus the gorgeous wings you see in the picture.

I also wanted to show you this fabulous Halloween Cat Mask by Chimeric Arts & Fashion which seemed to fit the Autumn Fae Costume just perfectly. This too was another FREE Hunt Pumpkin Gift at the Creator Showcase event.

Just behind Astrid and at her feet you can see the Creator’s Show Case Hunt Gift from United InishCon *UI* called the Dirty Little Secret Log. It has great little butterflies that flit and fly above it as well as a terrific animation when you sit on it. Your avatar will look from side to side before crawling inside to hide in the log! Like all the other gifts, it too is absolutely FREE!

Of Fairies, Ladies, and Crypts [3]

“As much as I’d like to meet the tooth fairy on an evening walk, I don’t really believe it can happen.” – Chris Van Alssburg

Of course… this is Second Life where anything can happen — (almost) — and look! There is a fairy and the lady of the lake both! As well as another chance for me to show off some amazing Hunt Gifts. If you look in Astrid’s right hand, you’ll see she is carrying the Creator’s Showcase Hunt FREE Hunt Gift from Souzou Eien by Draconias Timeless called Light of the Watch. This fantastically detailed lantern works with your AO just fine (or any pose) to let your avatar hold it with the supplied animation.
And since we are out on a walk meeting fairy tale figures… let me introduce you to the lady of the lake, courtesy of Folklorica! As their contribution to the Creator’s Showcase Hunt, their FREE gift is this stunning Glowing Lady on the Water gift. It includes the floating lily pads and pumpkins (which are animated and turn) and the glowing Lady of the lake who is scripted to appear and disappear during night time hours on the sim where it is rezzed. (Be sure the sim it is rezzed on has a night time setting. The lady will NOT appear during ‘day’ hours if the environment has a day setting. And the script is affected by region settings, not your personal windlight setting.)

Of Fairies, Ladies, and Crypts [2]

“I am your fairy tale. Your dream. Your wishes and desires, and I am your thirst and your hunger and your food and your drink.” – Klaus Kinski

 Last but not least, I wanted to share this fabulous Creator’s Showcase Hunt gift from Old World Designs. Just like all the other gifts, it is completely FREE and well worth picking up. The Spider Infested Crypt has a resting pose for one avatar and a ‘sit’ pose for another avatar (if someone wants to sit on it while someone else is resting inside O.o) and the spiders are affected by movement. In other words… they appear and scuttle and dash away everywhere — and make tons of creepy spider noises if you sit in the crypt, stand up out of it, or if you or someone else nearby moves around it much! It is simply a must have for any haunted decor or All Hallow’s Eve celebration!

Fantasy Faire 2010

The Fantasy Faire 2010 is underway. In association with the American Cancer Society, it aims to raise money to fight and spread awareness of Cancer in all its forms. There are nine sims for you to explore and there are heaps of goodies.. you will be spoilt for choice.

Today I wandered on the Elvencourt Sim and the Wings Wands Wonders sims but will do posts on other sims during the week.

There are lots of freebies available including a mini hunt where you are searching for little ribbons around the sims.. but I do encourage all those who can to be able to make a donation in one form or another.. no matter how small. Merchants have special items up for sale using Charity Vendors where all proceeds go to the American Cancer Society and there are donation kiosks dotted around the sims if you feel you cannot afford to buy something but would like to help the fight against cancer.

I will be showing you a mix of both free, low priced and Charity Vendor items. If you get the chance please please do visit and help to make this event a success.

Evies Closet is the main sponser of Elvencourt Sim. There are two 50L gowns here and a free munch fairy for all visitors!

This is one of Evies Relay for Life Donation Items called Fable. In a sumptious purple which, you get a full gown plus the options of a mini and a lingerie version.

The outfit costs 500L and all proceeds go to the American Cancer Society.

Haven Designs have a dollarbie gift by their subscribo matic of two tops and a set of earrings and they have several Donation kiosks with items of different values.

I bought the Limited Edition Selah dress for 350L which was made by Tyranny Designs and the Flix RFL Exclusive for 100L.

Angelwing have this adorable Fae set called Anakarina for free inside their stall

aswell as a vast array of gowns, silks and medeval inspired outfits. They have two gorgeous Donatation gowns out also

Both are 200L.

7 Selections have a set of freebie wings if you click the book in their stall. There are three in the set, but here are two of them. The textures wouldnt rez on the third as SL loves Mondays and so refused to work properly for me *pouts*

They come with a HUD so you can change their size and make them move or static. They also have two sets of wings up on Donation Vendors.

This is the darker set for 100L which also comes with a HUD. All proceeds go to the American Cancer Society.

Material Squirrel have two donation items out one of them being these gorgeous wings for 199L.

They really are absolutely stunning and they really do shimmer!

More to come soon!

Tonight is the night my heart stops

Valentines Day is fast approaching, as is evident by the vast amounts of pink, hearts and love themed hunts everywhere. I picked up a few things around the grid today while on my daily travels, that are along those lines.

First off, Pixeldolls have added more to their 10L clearance room. Their new selection is mostly underwear related, with some cute shortie pajama sets and some sexy lingerie..

This is the Fleur lingerie. You buy the set of bra’s in 5 colours for 10L and the set of panties in 5 colours for 10L to get the complete matching set seen here.

This is the Gilded Lily lingerie. Again you have to buy sets of bra and panties for 10L each to get the complete matching set seen here.

These is the Cami pajama’s in Fuschia. This comes as a complete set for 10L. There is alot more there to choose from so be sure to take a look around.

While I was doing the Magic & Romance hunt earlier today, I saw a notice about a simwide hunt going on at Heart & Sole. You are looking for little pink hearts in participating stores on their sim. There are 6 to collect inside Heart & Sole to start you off and your prizes will be these 3 cute pairs of Valentine themed shoes.

Fallen Hearts Shoes

GoGo shoes in White

Zamira Valentines .. these come with the sculpted socks attached and the socks are texture changing with a selection of Valentine related patterns! Cute!

E! have a new item in their Midnight Mania which is set fot 50 hits per day

If you are impatient and or want it in a different colour, you can buy it for 80L and in 8 different colours! I apologise for the lack of texture rez on the cuffs.. SL was having a tantrum no matter what I did.

You will land at the next two stores along the way on the Magic and Romance hunt so be sure to pick these goodies up on your way through.

This is called Lovey Dovey and is 20L at LVS&Co and can be found on the 2nd floor of the store.

This cute Blue Fairy outfit is a Dollarbie kept behind the counter at Deviance. There is also a set of freebie rainbow wings!

And last but by no means least, Aqua are having their official reopening tonight and Mango, Mango! is also opening its doors to the public too. To celebrate they are having a big party starting a 6pm SLT and everyone is invited! There is going to be a live DJ and lots of offers including these outfits!

Daring Deidra in Black – 1L

Aqua Bikini – 0L

The Tarsis in Black – 1L ( this is actually for the guys but I think I carry it off quite well )

So go along, scoop up the goodies and party the night away with Ayanna and Sileny!

Dark Fairytales..

If you are looking for some breathtaking gowns, you will adore these etherial gowns from Kouse’s Sanctum. They have moved to their own snowy wonderland sim and to celebrate, they are holding a mini hunt. You are looking for 7 large snowflakes placed around the whole sim, each one costs 1L to buy.

Inside you have not only one of the stunning gowns below, but also something called “Perfect Snowflake“. When you have collected all of the 7 snowflakes, you will have 7 perfect snowflakes… move them into another folder and rename it with your name and “Ice Hunt” and then send to Kouse Singh to get a bonus prize! I don’t know what it is yet as I have yet to recieve mine so it will be a surprise for me too!

Anyways… on to the gowns… I am currently obsessed with using the No Salvation sim as my backgrounds for nearly all my pictures. It is such a beautiful sim and the Cathedral is a sight to behold. It is my home away from home and I am always found wandering around it.

Snowflake Number 1 – Ariel

Snowflake Number 2 – Glimmer

Snowflake Number 3 – Glimmer (shorter)

Snowflake Number 4 – Diana

Snowflake Number 5 – Lynet

Snowflake Number 6 – Lynet Fae (wings included)

Snowflake Number 7 – Princess

A Little piece of Heaven @ Evies Closet

OK I know you guys were disapointed that the beautiful blue gown from Evies Closet was taken down before some of you could get hold of it… but Evie has been generous and put out not one but two discounted outfits at her store for the next 24 hours. Both of these cost 50L and are stunning so get there and get them while you can! They are found by taking an immediate left as you enter the store, next to the mistletoe crowns.

This is the Isabella Fairy Dress. It comes complete with wings and little ballet slippers and is just adorable.

This is the Isabella Formal Gown. The wings also come with this gown. Isnt it beautiful though. I could just float around in it all day. The Elf Ears are the Dollarbie set still available at Buried and have become my every day ears now! I love them.

The hair worn in both pictures is a camp item from Little Heaven. The chairs are inside the main building, in the hair section with the co-ordinates 87, 139, 24. You have to sit for 5 minutes to win this hair and a lighter blue colour in one pack. There are other chairs there too and I sat to win two more styles shown here.

There are three more camp chairs with other styles on, including one for guys and there are some lucky chairs with more hair on in the same room!

Lastly, Malt have set out this adorable little outfit as their Dollarbie Xmas gift to us all. You can get it by joining their subscribo and checking the notices. The same outfit is under their tree for 1L.

Have fun!

Autumn Fae by Inga Wind Clothing

Thanks to a landmark sent through the FabFree group inworld by treebee Withnail, I came across this absolutely stunning Autumn Fae costume available for FREE at Inga Wind Clothing … and it truely is breathtaking. It comes with the full outfit, wings, shoes and two different hair styles. You can find it in the left side of the shop upon landing. Its a big poster inside. I instantly fell in love with it and had to float off to Tempura to fly around in the Autumn trees there so I could take some snaps to show it off.

First off though, here are some pictures I took in my studio against the white backdrop.


 

 

And these are the two hairs that you get with the outfit.
