Princess Fifi

Buttercream

How could I possibly resist showing you this adorably sexy bodysuit from Junbug?! Exactly, I couldn’t. This flirty bit of lingerie with ruffles and beading is just one of the two Fifty Linden Friday items at Junbug. The ruffles and the cream color give this piece a dainty feminine look while the gold flower and bead-work add a classic elegance. I want to wear it everywhere! Think I could just throw on a pair of jeans?

To match my new 50 linden bodysuit I picked up these killer heels at Dirty Princess. The heels are a FREE group gift at Dirty Princess, and the group is FREE to join at this time. In addition to the cream color shown, the gift includes a pink pair in the same sexy style. These heels are meant to be worn with Slink High feet.

Lastly, I found some vampy winged eyeliner by Fiat Lux on the Marketplace. The liner comes in 3 variations, all of which give a sexy winged look. Being able to change my look with makeup tattoo layers is one of my favorite things in Second Life. If only awesome eyeliner was this easy in real life!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

The Evil Queen & The Good Queen

The Evil Queen

Throughout fantasy, fairy tales, and folklore the struggle between good and evil has always been at the heart of many tales. Two of the Recolors of Spring Hunt gifts at Apple May Designs hint at such stories, the Evil Queen dress, and the Good Queen dress. Inspired by the dresses at AMD and my own love of fantasy, I am excited to share with you an Evil Queen, and a Good Queen. I hope you like them as much as I do!

The Evil Queen’s dress is one of 4 female 1 linden Recolors of Spring Hunt prizes hidden around the Apple May Designs main location. I love that the dress has a fitted bodice and a short full skirt. In my opinion this silhouette is perfect for a fantasy look. The red and black fabric has a satin-like look to it, and I had no problem wearing this fully mesh dress with my Maitreya Lara body. The Evil Queen dress comes in standard sizes and includes a matching alpha layer.

Today only, Glam Affair has out a pack of three gorgeous skins for 50 lindens as their Fifty Linden Friday item. One of these skins I thought was perfect for my vision of the Evil Queen. The Sia skin in the India tone with her dark red lips is just stunning on and has the right combination of beauty and drama. Not as into this skin as I am? There’s bound to be one you will enjoy between the three tones (India, America, and Artic). Not to mention that at just 50 lindens for all 3, you kinda can’t go wrong!

Here are the Evil Queen’s Details, Enjoy!

The Good Queen

While I’m generally more inclined toward the darker fantasy characters, I have to admit I love this interpretation of the Good Queen. I envisioned something a little ethereal and I think I achieved such a look. I hope you love it!

Just like the Evil Queen, the Good Queen’s dress is a 1 linden RSH prize at Apple May Designs. This version is a beautiful white material with the same satin-like look and faint pattern of the black and red Evil Queen version. These dresses really are lovely on. For some diversity (and because I had the right skin appliers) I wore my Slink Physique body with the dress, and again had no issue. This dress also comes in standard sizes and can be worn using the provided alpha layer.

Additionally, I picked up some gorgeous past group gifts at NSP Florals. There are many gifts still available at NSP Florals, one of which is this enchanting Lady Gwynevere headdress in Sublime Mint. The headdress is a past FREE group gift that can still be found in the NSP Florals/MUSE VIP Room. The NSP Florals group is just 75 lindens to join, and you gain instant access to all the available gifts. Another beautiful FREE gift at NSP Florals are these lovely heels. Called the Peony Stilettos, these fantastic shoes are meant to be worn with Slink High feet. Also, they can be worn with or without the flower and crystal embellishment. Again, you’re able to get the shoes and the headdress at NSP Florals with just one group join fee of 75 lindens, not to mention the slew of other equally awesome gifts!

Here are the details for the Good Queen, Enjoy!

The Mermaid

The Mermaid

Hi there Fab Free! I had so much fun styling this look that I’m just going to get right to it and tell you all about it. This “Ocean” toned skin from PixyStix is truly gorgeous on, I love looking at it. It also kind of reminds me of blue raspberry kool-aid, which is awesome! This fantasy skin is the FREE Hunt for Your Inner Slut prize at PixyStix. As always, Pixy was very generous with this gift, included with this skin are appliers for just about everything out there. Seriously, tons of appliers.

I’ve always liked the idea of mixing genres and styles to create a more unique look. I love mixing vintage and modern styles for example. This time I went with the fantasy look of the skin from PixyStix and added some modern clothing from Apple May Designs, and the jewelry is somewhere in between. AMD is participating in the Recolors of Spring Hunt. The hunt is a dollarbie hunt and there are several items in the AMD store. This silver metallic bandeau style top and matching skirt set is just one of the four total gifts for women. There are also two hunt prizes for the men. For just one linden this outfit is a steal! You can also find this dress in gold, and I am happy to tell you that this RSH prize includes several appliers, or it can be worn on regular system layers. Happy Hunting!

Lastly, what modern mermaid would be complete without a kick-butt mani/pedi? Today is the last day of the current round of The Dressing Room Fusion. ZOZ has a set pretty shiny nails meant for Slink hands/feet in 3 colors for just 70 lindens per color. These are specifically meant to show off the cool feature of the most recent slink update, you can put a different nail pattern on each individual nail. Can’t make it out to TDRF in time? Not to worry, the sets will be available at the ZOZ main store at full price after TDRF ends.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Step Right Up And Enjoy The Show.

awesome stunt show 1

As a young boy, I witnessed a man in a raggedy, sequined outfit jump over a pair of trailers on his dirt bike, much to the delight of the crowd. Years later, here I am on the shoulder of Route 23, promoting the debut of my own daredevil show. I chose to wear a group gift from TentatioN. It is very casual and sporty, but with the camouflage pattern on the cargo pants pockets and in the lower corner of the shirt, it also says, “I am a warrior.” Sometimes, it’s best to let your clothes speak for you (unless they are going to say “I’m a dork”, then there is no reason to give them a megaphone). This, however, says volumes in a positive, masculine manner.  The gift comes with a color change hud, providing four color choices for both the mesh shirt and the pants. TentatioN is not a free group, though. It will set you back 30L, but this outfit in four colors is worth it.

awesome stunt show 2

I grew up in Los Tres Dolores New Mexico , a town named for a mystical formation of three cacti. For my death-defying entry into the world of show business, I will jump over that local landmark in the greatest riding lawnmower jump in the history of mankind! At first glance a lawnmower it may not appear to be the best choice for soaring through the air, but isn’t a riding mower essentially a helicopter that has been flipped upside down? This very detailed (and shockingly fast) mower is the current FREE group gift from Knight Performance. This store along with the one which shares the building with them (Surplus Motors) are great sources for beautifully detailed vehicles in SL. Both stores are free groups and offer many Midnight Manias, group gifts and discounts. If you have any interest in vehicles on Second Life, you should seriously consider joining them.

If you are going to let your clothes do the speaking for you, this Rockabilly Hunt prize jacket from The Dark Fae positively screams, “Rebel.” Its cool stand-up collar and retro styling including a must see graphic on its’ back are perfect for people who don’t follow the rules, like me (even if it’s because I can’t be bothered to read them). The Rebel Soul Jacket sports versions with and without the t-shirt and comes in three sizes, plus an additional two sizes in fitmesh. Cool style is timeless, and this jacket is perfectly cool! This Rockabilly Hunt prize is not free, but at only 2L, it’s a bargain. These jeans are extraordinary as well, coming from a quickly expanding store called Illi. Currently on their Midnight Mania board, these Midnight Open Belt Jeans are nicely textured and look great, and a big surprise was the texture hud that came with them. Illi gives us 8 denim colors, 4 belt colors and 4 metal accent textures for the belt. That is excellent versatility for a free gift! It does carry a small logo, but it is easy to overlook, given the generosity of this Midnight Mania prize. Also worth noting are my mesh white leather sneakers, fresh from the Wayward Hunt. The prize, from the store United Colors, comes in both men’s and ladies’ sizes and with that touch of blue on them they look fantastic for a FREE hunt gift. I was truly impressed!

awesome stunt show 3

Well, I dressed for success and I did everything right but sometimes that just isn’t enough. Sometimes in life the ramp just isn’t high enough, or maybe the wind shifts, or maybe a lawn mower just isn’t meant to fly. A person could drive themselves crazy sitting back and reflecting over those kinds of things, but not me. I am on to my next great adventure and I hope you will be there with me.—–WHC Riler

Nerdy Girl

Nerdy Girl

Hello Fab Free! I hope we all made it through Monday with little if any trauma. Recently the shop Nerdy Girl reopened and they now have out the cutest outfit out as a FREE group gift. The outfit from Nerdy Girl consists of a mesh crop-top and a matching floral mesh skirt. The floral pattern on the skirt is very vibrant and feminine, and I love the colors. The Nerdy Girl group is FREE to join as well, so no reason to miss out on this great gift!

To compliment my new outfit, I picked up a sparkly teal clutch by Ashmoot. This little gem is currently a FREE group gift at the Eden of Virtual Arts event. You’ll need to join the FREE EVA group and wear that tag to get the gift. This great little bag could easily go with a formal look, or even business attire.

Also, I could not resist sneaking in a few more Wayward Hunt goodies. I know you’ve seen a lot of Wayward stuff on the blog lately, but it can’t be helped. The Wayward Hunt items are not only FREE but awesome. We can’t not share them with you!

She’s Gone Wayward

Wayward Hunt

Hi Fab Free! As you can see we are having a great time with the recently started Wayward Hunt! Not only is this hunt FREE but there are tons of amazing designers participating. Thus far I’ve been very impressed with the hunt items, so of course I had to get in on the fun of showing them off!

I love this hairstyle with the fun rainbow ends and cute top bun is the FREE Wayward Hunt prize from Blues. The hairstyle is named Beau and comes in a blond version and the brunette version shown. The rainbow colored ends are beautifully done, and they give this pretty, casual style an edgy playfulness.

This pale freckled skin with red eye-makeup and red lips is the FREE Wayward Hunt gift from The Skinnery. This gift includes the skin in a dark brows option (shown) and a no brows option. Also included with this gift are appliers for the TMP body. (I used the Maitreya HUD to manually adjust my skin-tone to match the Skinnery tone)

The moment I saw this skirt on Flickr, I knew I had to have it! The skirt is the FREE Wayward Hunt gift from Yumyums. It’s a fully mesh skirt and was intended to be worn with the Maitreya body. I think this vibrant floral print is perfect for the season, and the pleats are super cute.

Next, the shoes! I am a sucker for a cute pair of wedge heels. These open-toe wedges are the FREE Wayward hunt prize at Livalle (formerly L. Warwick). The shoes include version to fit Slink High, Belleza, and Maitreya feet.

Finally, the hanging rug with the string of lights in the background is the FREE hunt prize from Toro. The textures area really beautiful, I love the bohemian element to the style. Also, the lights can be turned off and on with just a click. I think this pretty piece would look great indoors or on a covered patio, and it’s great for photos!
