Speaking of Fae…

Fairy_001

Not long ago, I visited the Redeux event and showed off one of the free gifts I picked up in a post [here]. I’ve been unpacking boxes ever since. There are so many gifts that it seems I’ll be unpacking boxes for months! Luckily I managed to narrow down my findings to a few special ones to share with you. It’s not secret that I love roleplay and fantasy looks, so I was excited to put together a roleplay look for you. I helped it along with a group gift from a special store that you’ll want to pick up.

So versatile…

I stopped by Silvan Moon Designs to pick up the April Gift and discovered that the gift this month is really versatile. This little dress is a casual style that you could wear as a Boho dress if you were out-of-character, or you could doll it up with accessories to make a fae as I have done, or it has just enough of a traveler feel to create a gypsy. There are so many possibilities! The Silvan Moon Designs group has a one-time join fee of 500L, but you will get a quality gift each month to more than make up for the fee. This dress comes in sizes to fit Maitreya, Slink Original, and Slink Hourglass bodies.

Speaking of Fae…

So you know I revisited Redeux. I picked up my wings from Poet’s Heart. They are a beautiful pearlized shade of purple, draped in pearls. They include a color change hud for the pearls too! This is a free gift with your Redeux tag, and the Redeux gift is free to join.

What else?

What else did I get? I also nabbed some stone textures. A package of 18 really terrific ones to be exact. To get these, stop by the Timeless textures booth at Redeux and pick up the free gift there. You can see an example of one of the great looking textures behind me in these pictures.

Oh and one more thing…

I LOVE this necklace by Steelhead Outfitters. It fits perfectly and is another free gift from Redeux. This is another one of those gifts that is perfect for roleplay or everyday wear either one. It also includes a color change hud that allows you to change the color of the cord and the circular pendant both separately for lots of versatility! And don’t forget that it’s free!

Laundry Day

Laundry Day_001

I swear Love never runs out of clothes. Just look at everything she found here, and here, and here! I – on the other hand – am a guy. And I wear my stuff until I’m down to nothing but socks and underwear for laundry day. So that’s how I ended up at the laundry mat in my socks and my skivvy’s. At least I get to do it Faaaaaabulously.

Doing Laundry…

If you want to pick up my skivvy’s you won’t even have to leave the house for the underwear. My briefs are a 1L Marketplace gift from Brah. Now these pink undies aren’t for every guy, but if you want to show a little LGBT pride, you might want to add these to your wardrobe! I can’t tell you what they say on the behind, you’ll just have to make sure your adult settings on marketplace are set and check them out for yourself and decide if you want to be… risky in your underwear choices. They only come in an applier for the Belleza Jake Body.

The Socks!

Head over to the TMD event and pick up these awesome FREE socks by Cold Ash! They are perfect for hanging out at the laundry mat or at home… or anywhere really. Along with a color change hud and 10 color choices…

You’ll get socks to fit:

  • Jake
  • Gianni
  • Slink
  • TMP

No Pain, No Gain

And oh yeah… hurry up and stop by the Bodyfy Event. Pru showed you some of the awesome gifts in her post here and Astrid showed you a gift here. I stopped by to check things out myself and picked up this great tattoo from Identity. It was painless really! Just click the buy button for 0L and the tattoo was mine!

You get fresh and faded applier layers for the following bodies:

  • TMP
  • Omega
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya

Inspired

Pearl_001

Inspired…

Kat got all dolled up for a date night out and I was inspired to do the same, though I took my own spin on things since of course Kat and I have different styles. I found a couple of hunt items at Glitzz and also stopped by Redeux, which has just opened up and will be open until the 21st, to pick up free gifts!

Getting ready…

My dress from Glitzz, which could double as lingerie, includes panties and comes in a beautiful pearlized blue color with a lace hem and neckline and pearl shoulder straps. It’s sexy al la mode for sure. It only comes in Maitreya and Hourglass, but you might be able to do some fiddling to get it to fit your body type if you tried. For the price of 1L as part of the Honey Funny Bunny Hunt, it’s worth trying it out to see if this sexy number will fit your mesh body. It fit my Maitreya body like a perfect glove.

The choker.

My choker is a diamond masterpiece set in a gold setting. There is an included hud which allows you to change the setting to silver. There are two different chokers in the gift box … an unscripted version that is simply a pretty choker/necklace, and an open collar rlv version for those who want some adult risky play. This choker is a gift from Glitzz as part of the Evil Bunny Hunt and will only cost you 1L and a little hunting time.

Final Touches.

I wanted to add a little “sexy mystery” to my look and I found it at Redeux. This is the anniversary round, so not only are there lots of 25L items, 50% off items, and low price gachas, but there are also many many amazing free gifts. I picked up this lace mask by Viki with my free to join Redeux tag. There were free gifts at every booth though, so hurry over before the event ends on April 21st!

Mask appliers available:

  • Lelutka
  • Omega

Looking for adventure…

Cytheria_001

Looking for Adventure…

While Aline was at the Beach finding magic and relaxation… I was at Cytheria because I craved some spooky adventure (and a different type of magic). If you haven’t visited this cool photogenic hotspot, put it on your Bucket List. Between the skull infested swamps, the cottage with the dungeon, and the awesome castle – complete with … I think it’s a squid? you’ll be glad you went! It’s not the beach, but hey… a guy has to do what a guy has to do. Maybe Aline will join me on one of those days when she’s feeling a bit more wild! Like when she’s making onesies into fashion statements 😉

Before I headed out for adventure I stopped by i.mesh to pick up the newest group gift. The group is free to join and the gift is free as well. You’ll be getting a great new Tank Top out of the deal in a terrific knit texture (this picture doesn’t do it justice) and the back has a really nice sort of mesh pattern across the shoulders. I know, I know… I should have got a picture of the back…

Gift Details:

  • Shirt Sizes Available: Signature fitted Mesh
  • Colors: Black or White

Despite the fact that this top only came in a Signature fit, it worked perfectly for my Belleza Jake body and I didn’t even have to fiddle with my shape at all. For the price of FREE, it’s worth picking up to see if it will fit your mesh body even if you don’t have Signature, especially for a quality gift like this. You’ve definitely got nothing to lose!

Anyway, I’m off to check out the squid thing again inside that castle!

These Gifts Speak for Themselves

Rising_001

I tried to think of something funny and clever to say but in the end I had writer’s block so this gift will have to speak for itself. Thankfully, it does well, with these great leggings, embellished with crosses, and the skin tight corset that shows off… well so much I had to get strategic hair to cover up… you know. Parts.

You can pick this gift up at Waffles as part of the Darkness Inside Hunt. It’s actually two separate gifts… the leggings come in one hunt box for 1L and the corset comes in a separate hunt box for 25L so you can get the entire look for just 26L total.

Corset sizes available:

  • Classic XXS – L
  • TMP
  • Maitreya
  • Fine & Curvy
  • Physique & Hourglass
  • Freya, Isis, & Venus

Legging Sizes Available:

  • Classic Mesh XS – L
  • TMP
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass & Physique
  • Freya, Isis, & Venus

Who doesn’t love a free hoodie?

Subway_001

Doing some event shopping…

Loki and I took out after my hunt buddy who was doing some event shopping and who showed us this great free unisex gift from Gabriel! We went to the Neo Japan Event (and wow is it an awesome event!) and found the box with the gift that you can buy for 0L, no group required. And who doesn’t love a free hoodie?

  • The shirt comes in a Maitreya size for ladies…
  • And it comes in Belleza and Signature for men…
  • Also included is a shoulder Katana (not shown) with animation.

If you haven’t… you should…

Sitting Pretty_001

If you haven’t… you should…

If you haven’t checked the FabFree group gift list lately you should. Just click [Here], or on the icon along the right side of the blog, and you’ll find a long list of stores offering amazing free gifts exclusively to FabFree group members. I was browsing the listing and happened upon the Satus Inc. FabFree gift and decided I really wanted to pick it up!

I teleported over to Satus Inc. and picked up this Rye Tied Pink shirt. It’s a lovely knit fabric with side splits and the beautiful detail of ties on the sides to keep the fabric together. It comes in several handy mesh body sizes. As always, Fabfree gifts are free with your Fabfree group tag.

Shirt Sizes included:

  • Fitmesh XS – XL
  • TMP
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, & Venus

Something to match.

I needed a skirt to match and so I hopped over to Atik where I saw that the April group gift, free to group members (the group is free to join) was a great compliment to my top! It’s a cute miniskirt with a soft floral pattern, perfect for the coming spring air that I keep hoping for!

Skirt sizes included:

  • Maitreya
  • TMP
  • Slink Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, & Venus

A Touch of Spring

A Vision in Pink_001

New Month, New Lucky Boards!

I love stopping by Vision at the beginning of the month and picking up my 100L credit with my VIP group. (That group is 250L to join… a one-time fee.) Usually I also take some time to browse the lucky letter boards. In the past, those boards have been exclusive to the VIP group which you have to pay to join, but this month … hurry because I’m not sure how long this will last… the four new lucky letter boards are open to the free to join regular Vision Store group as well! So if your letter pops up on the boards, you can get the items for free!

I got really lucky this month because my letter came up on two of the boards and I was able to snag the matching shade skirt and shade top in pink! 😀

Available sizes:

  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, & Venus

A Vision in Pink_002

A touch of spring

It’s been a chilly start to April in my neck of the woods, but the birds are still singing their songs and this pretty free gift from Maxi Gossamer has me thinking of spring! The group is free to join, meaning that this gift will only cost you a group space. You’ll get the necklace in two different lengths… short (shown) and long. It is also texture change and you can change the color of the bird eggs in the nest. How cute!
