Simply Fabulous Free and Under L$75 Finds in Second Life – Since 2007

Sometimes, you just *gotta* blog something.  The wings on this outfit sold me, I tried them on and said “woah!” out loud.  Sold.  Must blog.  Sometimes too you can see the end photo in your head, sometimes you can get there and sometimes you can’t, but when you are inspired, there is always a vision.  I saw my vision and got to create it this time, so I am grateful and blessed.

and I love anything with fingerless gloves.  😛  Just by the way.

So this awesome getup is another of those awesome free goodies at the Halloween Shop & Hop going on now and lasting until the end of the month.  This is courtesy of Alter, which is a new to me designer (I’m discovering so many amazing designers lately!  It’s such a delight!).

Honestly, you are gonna be unpacking for agessssss once you go to the shop & Hop (as usual!), I even wrote down a few places I want to go back to once I have some more lindens.  There are also a few gift cards as gifties.

I’ve got one more Shop & Hop showcase coming up for you, so hold tight.  Then it’s back to the spooky!

Fairy Magic for your Garden

Coming soon to fab free

Hey gang!

The fun and excitement of hunting for fairies and collecting beautiful gifties in the Fab Free Enchanted Forest Hunt continues!  (It continues until July 22!), and today I am sharing with you this gorgeous (my photo doesn’t do it justice!) giftie that you can get at Dreamland Designs for the hunt.

This twinkles and sparkles in person, which I couldn’t capture in my pic so you just have to get it and see it in world.  I am loving this in my garden!  It’s got a bench with animations, so you can hang out by yourself, with friends or even make it a romantic hang out with that someone special! (wink wink!)

This is a 1L prize that you don’t want to miss!

Hunting for Fairies!

ap_007

So as you are all aware of (or you should be!) the Fab Free Enchanted Forest Hunt is in full swing!  It is a theme I love because I am all about fantasy!  When I do a photo, I feel like I am creating a character and that character has a story!  For instance, my character today has some sort of mystical thing going on, her outfit, her magical sphere, where she is (some secret forest place?).

I know you want all the deets so lets do it.  😉  Both my items can be found in the Fab Free Enchanted Forest Hunt, so get your hunting shoes on (or do it barefoot, Like I do!) and do some hunting!

Fairy Hunting!

My dress is one of five from Ruxy, it fits Matireya and Legacy.  All her hunt gifts are only 1L and all very cute!

My orb/sphere is from Afterparty who makes so much fun glowy stuff.  This is a 5L gift.

How to get them?  Just find the little rainbow fairy hiding in the store (some stores have several!) pay them and they will give you a gift as a thank you for finding them!  Such cute, generous little souls!

Other Yummy Finds

My hair is a freebie from the Hair Fair (goes until July 4!) made by No.Match.  There is no group required to grab the gifts at the Hair Fair!

The little fireflies glowing around my head are a free group gift from Persefona.  That group is free to join and she’s got lots of fun goodies for taking photos at her shop, if you have never been there!

Last the little garden area behind me (not the trees, just the cool colorful part!) is a free SL18B gift (no group required!) from Dreamland Designs!

Dragon Fae

Dragon Fae

Hey FabFree, this will be quick… I gotta focus here… this big guy is a biter.

So, I dived into the Fantasy Faire this year. I bought the Deluxe HUD for 350L, (grumbling the whole time) but am I glad I did! You get two lovely outfits by Silvan Moon in the HUD. One for ladies one for the guys, a super helpful and necessary teleport/Inventory HUD and a little bird helper. I recommend visiting the Fantasy Faire’s website to get all the lore and the rich stories that go along with this Quest. This is no simple Hunt.

So off I went on the Quest. My giant bitey friend here is the gift from the Khol Dracys SIM. It’s a ‘Skeletal Adult Dragon’ animesh statue. He has a ton of animations and is sure to impress. Just make sure you have room to rezz this big boy as he is 128 li. And worth every bit! You will need the Fantasy Faire “Language of the Birds” Quest HUD to get the dragon. If you don’t want the deluxe HUD with the outfits, the Basic HUD is also available for 250L. 

My dragon taming outfit is from a Gacha by AiSha I found along my path. The ‘Ice Fairy’ comes in a pure white, a silver and the ‘Black Ice’ I’m wearing. The wings are the Rare I was lucky enough to pull. Each play is only 50L so you’ll find it easy to play all you want.

Sizes Available

  • Classic Mesh – S _ L
  • Maitreya
  • SLink  – Hourglass, Original

My dragon taming stick is one of three current free Group Gifts out for members of the HarshLands group. This is the ‘Vaxtri Staff’ and you can pick it up for free with your HarshLands group tag. The staff is unscripted but easy to move and place in either hand as needed. Plus, the HarshLands group is free to join!

Now I better let this dragon fly… before he gets hungry….

Coming soon

So gang, I’ve got not one, but TWO Fab Free Group Gifts for you today, plus a freebie from Ajuda Brazil.

But first a little about rl.

It is finally warm enough to sit on my patio, so of course the moment I got all set up with my laptop, some water and my notes, they show up to do the lawns.  (I forgot they do that on Wednesday, but they usually start much earlier!)  So not only is it noisy as all get out, but grass cuttings give me a migraine.  I do love the smell of freshly mowed grass…. but I digress.  on top of that, I have a chi who does not want to lay nicely on the blanket I set for him, he needs to be in my lap.  He’s not a tiny chi either.  He is big for a chi (tall I should say).

I am determined to spend some outdoor time today so here I sit, trying but failing to block the noise from my sensitive to noise brain, hoping the pollen won’t get to me, balancing the little man on my lap and bringing you guys goodies all at the same time.  This puts new meaning to the word multitasking!

Ok Freebie time

(omg I cant think!  aaaagggghhhhh!!!) (imagine multiple leaf blowers and lawn mowers going all at once… you get the picture.. )

Both freebies today are gifts for the FabFree Group, which of course is free to join.  Just make sure that the FabFree Group Tag is active and click to get your gifts!

The first being a full outfit from YOU by GeMyles.  This comes with both the cute dress I am wearing in the pic as well as the equally cute shoes.  They come with a HUD that offers a plethora of colors to choose from.

The dress fits:

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique

The shoes fit:

  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • TMP

The second FabFree Giftie is the cute little purse, this comes courtesy of Glitterati, again, just join the Free FabFree Group and wear your tag and click!  Tada!  Cute little purple bag is yours!

Plus One More!

Lastly, but not leastly, my necklace is a freebie from Ajuda Brazil.  This comes courtesy of Venge.  Ajuda Brazil is well worth the visit if you aren’t familiar with it, there are (again) a plethora (Gosh I love that word!) of freebies to get got.

Now I shall wrap this up for today gang.  My head is spinning from the noise and I need to get recombobulated! (psst. Aline!)

Til next time!  Hope you are all getting some fresh spring air soon too!

Surreal Serenade

Surreal Serenade

“Music is the strongest form of magic.”
Marilyn Manson

I never know where my blogging adventures are going to take me, and that’s lots of fun.  I never know what form my blog photos will take and there are no limits to the imagination.  Today they have taken me on a magical, musical journey into the mystical fairy realms of wonder and light.  I found this gorgeous apparel at Planet29 in a gacha (75L) from FenDuDu (Flower Fairy Gacha).  This is Flower Fairy Streamline B #2.  It is a sky blue, very pretty! I’ve circled it below in the key.  It is one size.

I realize there is a lot going on in this photo, so lets not ignore the elephant piano in the room.  This piano is more than just a photo prop, it plays music and it animates you along with the music!  It is a very cool item from Culprit that you can find at Uber.  It was essential to my ethereal magical mystery tour, per se.  😉  Background is just a bunch of my own stuff I threw together and other magical surprises can be found in my credits list below.

Next time I will just be appearing as myself.  😛  Look out!

Your airy fairy blogger,

Magic in the Night

fc_013

Hey fab fans!

One of my favorite things about blogging in second life is the ability to create a fantasy in a photo. Something that you can imagine has a story behind it. We can morph our avatars into just about anything, so really you are limited only by your imagination. I’m sort of an airy-fairy girl on the inside, so I had a lot of fun with this photo shoot. I built myself a little enchanted fairy forest (with some nifty goodies from Fantasy Illuminations). I also dug out my old fairy wings. They are animated/scripted and my faves.

This cute dress from Ari-Pari. It is a gift in the Life is Sweet and So are You Hunt.   This hunt runs until March 31. It is a 1L hunt, but each designer has the option of a 25L exclusive item. This cute dress is a 1L prize.  It comes in:

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique

Stay tuned!  Next time I’ve got some Bond Girl mystique for you!  😀

Sweet freedom whispered in my ear
You’re a butterfly
And butterflies are free to fly
Fly away, high away bye bye

Fly away

Want to be a butterfly too? Auradacious has the perfect Hunt prize for you if you do! And it’s a sassy butterfly too. The floral sash barely covers the essentials but if you’re brave enough you’ll be the most beautiful butterfly in the sky. You get these beautiful bento animated wings both scripted and unscripted, the sash, a little butterfly friend and the silver crown. All for a little hunting and 3Ls for the Midsummer Nights Hunt.

Beyond Time


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!

Let the Fairy in You Fly

Keep Calm and Fairy On

Hello Fabulouses!  I’m just flitting in with a sprinkling of pixie dust to turn you into a magical fairy like me.  My entire avatar, from head to toe, is a prize in The World Fairy Hunt, which is going on right now over at Brii Underground.  Hidden throughout the store are 10 complete outfits with clothes, shoes, and accessories – all for just 5 Linden dollars each.  You’ll be searching for a fairy house, and the best part is, they are super easy to find.  In case you get stuck, you can click the sign in the store to pick up a note card with helpful hints.  Although I am showing the tiny fairy avatar, there are plenty of outfits for full sized avis as well – there’s something for everyone in this hunt.

Put on Your Fairy Wings!

The Aguane Fairy Avatar includes a full body alpha, this adorable shape, wings, dress, ribbons and flowers.  You wear the outfit all at once, so you cannot mix and match the clothing items, but I was totally ok with that since the final look is simply magical.  With big blue eyes, the tiniest pointy ears and delicate wings, this outfit will have you ready for role play in an instant.  No pixie dust required, but hey it was fun to toss the glittery stuff around!

What’s Included:

  • Full Alpha
  • Aguane Fairy Avatar Shape
  • Complete outfit which includes skin, eyes, hair and all items worn in picture

Well, I’m off to do some important fairy business.  The first thing on my list is to sprinkle some magical powder onto Ripley so he can fly just like the dog Nana in Peter Pan.  Until next time, happy hunting!

~ Kat (and Ripley)

Kat is wearing…

Complete Avatar:  Brii Underground Aguane Fairy Avatar (prize in The World Fairy Hunt – 5L)
Pose:  Muschi – Fairy Pose Set
Sim:  WonderOaks
