Enjoying the Holiday Grind

The holiday grind has not gotten to me yet… in fact today I’m enjoying it! Gothmas style! Though I admit, I did wake up early to make pancakes. Does it count as Gothic if I made the pancakes in the shape of little bats and “colored” them with Nutella to get them to look right? I know my daughter was certainly thrilled!

Enjoying the Holiday Grind 1

Speaking of the holiday grind… the Radio Grind has everything you need for a Gothmas! Or just for a Gothic day… or steampunk (it could qualify for that with the right decor). Either way, I stopped by the Cart Sale again, and made away like a banshee!

The Radio Grind has me dressed up in style in this Storypunk Wonderland Red dress. It is mesh with lots of sizing choices to fit your avatar… and at only 10L for such fabulous details? I fell in love!

If red isn’t your thing, don’t worry! This same gorgeously detailed dress was at the cart in two other colors for the same low price, one of which was a soft floral blue, pretty enough for the spring days to come.

Enjoying the Holiday Grind 2

So it’s the holiday. Merry Gothmas and Happy Holidays (all of them) and good cheer for the New Year! Are you loving my set? Me too! Would you believe that this AMAZING skybox is only 10L at the Radio Grind cart at the Cart Wash Sale?!

The skull throne and curtain were included details from Radio Grind skybox, though I did toss down a few things of my own for this picture. You can get the Glyphic Circle by Nocturne Creations from the Marketplace for only 50L. It is animated and scripted to turn, and only 3 prim when you set it down.

I also set George out again. He joined me once before in a long ago post. My hellpup is a sweet Gacha prize you can get in store from Sweet Thing. It is just a touch over our 75L limit, but I had to share him with you! For just 80L per spin you can get a chance at this cute pup — either in holdable or the “plop” option shown. And he comes in lots of classic Gothic styles!

Enjoying the Holiday Grind 3

Last, but certainly not least, I hope you are still making all of your advent stops! Many stores are finishing off with grand finales today! My lovely little Kiss Me Holly stick pin is by Chop Zuey and is FREE with your group tag (350L to join). This advent is generous indeed in that there are 12 days of group only gifts (the group is 350L to join) with a men’s side and women’s side (so 24 gifts total there alone) PLUS an additional completely FREE advent with 12 days of FREE gifts too! And the advents for this store are open the full time so if you miss a day you can still get all the gifts. Be sure to pick them all up before they are gone!

Dreaming of a White Elephant Christmas

My Gothic Christmas

As far as I am concerned you can still be goth and love the Holidays. Anyone who says different, well they are missing out! I spent an afternoon at the White Elephant Fair and had a really great time. There are tons of great bargains to be had from some wonderful designers. Additionally there are gacha machines all along the walkways and a huge Christmas tree overflowing with gifts from many of the participating designers. Several of the gifts are even FREE!

First things first, how cute is this dress? I love the cute argyle pattern of this fully mesh dress. It’s one of the gachas from Mutiny in Heaven. You can score one of several versions of this dress for just 35 lindens per play. The playful dress comes with a matching alpha layer, and standard mesh sizes. In addition to these fun sweater dresses, Mutiny in Heaven also has this gorgeous long hairstyle as one of their gachas. The hairstyle is called “Maeve” and is just 50 linden per play.

My Gothic Christmas Outfit

Now about those gifts I mentioned.  As those who know me know that I love bats, so this super cute Christmas hat with the bats from The Little Bat is of course my favorite of the gifts I found under the Christmas Tree at The White Elephant Fair. The Little Bat gift hat is FREE, just find the gift under the tree and purchase for zero linden.

Another personal favorite is this festive fuzzy jewelry set from Indulge Temptation. The set includes a necklace (shown) and matching earrings (not shown) with fuzzy little pom poms. Included in the gift is a color change /resize hud that lets you resize and change the color of the metal parts as well as the pom poms. The White Elephant gift from Indulge Temptation is just one linden. As with all the White Elephant Fair gifts, you’ll find this one under the big Christmas tree.

Always a sucker for makeup, I was delighted to find the gift from Dust Bunnies under the White Elephant Fair Christmas tree. The gift is a set of lovely lip appliers in various shades of holly red. Included in the gift are appliers for Omega, Catwa, Lelutka, and Slink, as well as system tatoo layers for each shade. With all the appliers, and matching system layers, these lipsticks are a steal at just one linden for the set.

Finally, I seriously enjoy decorating for the Holidays. If I had infinite funds and free time, I would decorate the whole house with each season and holiday. Yes, I’m that person! Luckily for me, and for you, the White Elephant Fair gift from Yay and Stuff includes two wreaths, one black (shown) and one red (not shown), as well as a pair of reindeer slippers (not shown). The wreaths are able to be copied so you can put out as many as you like. This gift can be had for just 10 lindens.

All these gifts and the gachas are just a tiny example of the bargains to be had at The White Elephant Fair. I highly suggest everyone take some time to check it out. Even the scenery is worth the visit.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Guest Blog by Gloria Silverstone – Twisted Victorian Gothic

See the Original Post here – Twisted Victorian Gothic

POSTED ON OCTOBER 9, 2015

FT Twisted Fall hunt 2015_Victorian Gothic LRThe Twisted Hunt (9/19-10/19) is well under way and although dubbed the hardest hunt on Second Life, the prizes are worth the effort.  Today, I’m showcasing Finishing Touches main hunt gift the Qi Skybox, side hunt items and a corresponding gacha collection.  The skybox and all the furnishings have a modern Victorian Gothic influence in a black, white and grayscale palette….perfect for a sophisticated Halloween.  Victorian Gothic is an architectural style and movement during the mid-late 19th century, often seen as a sub-style of the broader Gothic Revival style.  It is characterized by gothic details, decorative patterns, scallopping, lancet windows and hood moulding.  Architectural elements such as pointed arches, steep-sloping roofs and fancy carvings like lace ant lattice-work were applied to a wide range of Gothic Revival objects.  The movement is all about drama and elegance with lavish interiors, curved ornate furniture and plenty of decorative details.

FT Twisted Fall hunt 2015_Victorian GothicFinishing Touches Qi skybox has a decorative pattern tiled ceiling, tall narrow pointed arched windows, oversized white candle fireplace and white/black wainscoting.  I styled the Victorian living space with the tufted curved black & white sofas, armchairs and stools enhancing the ornate detailed birdcage chandeliers and patterned tapestry wall hangings.  Pops of red, hanging boston ferns, potted palms and framed Victorian silhouette complete the space.

FT Twisted Fall hunt 2015_Gold SkeletonTo commemorate the 11th Twisted Hunt, Finishing Touches is offering a side hunt with eleven gifts that correspond to the gacha collection.  The hunt items include 3 versions of a skirted table, 3 versions of hanging tapestry, couple rugs with pillows, Persian Grey wrinkled rug, box of skulls, pumpkin trio and ceramic vase.  All side hunt gifts can be found in the Twisted Qi skybox (the main Twisted Hunt gift).  Do you love the Qi skybox?  Need to furnish it, then check out the gacha for beautifully twisted coordinating decor priced at $50 per play.  Try your luck at black or white caged chandeliers, shadow box frames, tulip lamps, coffee tables, and tufted stools (see key below).

_FT_ Twisted Gacha Fall 2015Lastly, 24Karat Roux, owner and creator of Finishing Touches is offering the Rolled Arm Couch & Chair in White Leather and Black Leather for 50% off the regular price during the Twisted Hunt.  The couch and chair were designed to coordinate with the Twisted Qi skybox hunt gift and Twisted gacha decor items.  Hope you are inspired to create an elegance spooky gothic Halloween using the Finishing Touches free Twisted hunt gifts.  Happy Hunting!

Taxi to Finishing Touches please…

Red Rose

Rose Red

Hello Fab Free’rs! I have to tell you that I’ve been quite inspired lately, and I’m very pleased with the result. It’s amazing what a single conversation can spark within your imagination! Further inspiration for this sinister gothic lolita look came from the dress. This highly detailed mesh dress is a Marketplace special by an up-and-coming designer. The Antimon shop is currently on the Marketplace only, and you’ll find several items all within this playful goth genre. You’ll find this dress by Antimon for just 50 lindens on the Marketplace.

With this demon dolly look cultivating in my mind, the latest group gift from Besom (formerly Soonsiki) was a perfect fit! The blunt doll-like bangs and thick locks of this hairstyle compliment the look perfectly. This hairstyle from Besom is a FREE group gift, and the group is currently FREE to join. This cute style comes in a complete fatpack of color options, along with an additional version for bustier avatars.

As I’m sure you’ve noticed, I’ve been rather attached to my Lelutka heads, I often switch between Stella and Aria. Considering my love for changing up my look, I’ve been excited to find some fun makeup appliers for the Lelutka heads. These ombre lips are one of the several variations available on a lipstick hud by Jack Spoon. I found this particular set on the Marketplace for just 75 lindens.

Royal Death

Purple Candy Queens

Hello lovies, I hope you’ve all been enjoying your weekend! I had one heck of a day! It feels good to be back her and blogging. So this post includes some great finds available at Fab Free Headquarters, and a few extras to help complete this fantasy look. The inspiration for this style which I would call some sort of cross between steam-punk and a gothic graphic novel villain, came from the FFHQ gift from Queen’s.

This macabre helmet is the current gift from Queen’s out at FFHQ, and like all FFHQ gifts it is absolutely FREE! The helmet has a sinister feel with skulls and red roses. Also, it includes a re-size script to suit various hairstyles. It’s been a while since I’ve put together something suited for fantasy role play of any kind, so this was super fun.

While at FFHQ I spotted another gift that went perfectly with my new helmet. The jumpsuit from Purple Candy is also FREE and is just the right shade of red to match the roses in the helmet from Queen’s. The outfit includes prim cuffs for the pant legs as well as appliers for several mesh bodies, breasts, and booties!

Right now at Fri.day you can get the perfect pair of chunky black heels, along with a matching red pair for FREE with your Fri.day group tag! These heels are meant to be worn with either Slink High feet, the Belleza body, or the Maitreya body. The Fri.day group is just $50 lindens to join which makes these heels a steal! These shoes are the December gift, however they are still available.

Feeling quite dastardly in my outfit, I topped the look off with a leather bolero, some tattoos, and a monocle, because why not?! I really do like this look a lot. I think it’s dangerous and fun with a lot of role play potential. I hope you enjoy it just as much.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

I’m a Gloomy Girl

Hello Fab Free’rs! Hope you’ve been having a fantastic Halloween! I just found some lovely group gifts from Gloomy Thought, and I couldn’t wait to share them with you. The group is free to join and both gifts are available in the past notices, don’t forget to grab them up before their gone!  So without further adieu, I’ll get to the details. Enjoy!

GT Mourning Dress

First, this lovely dress is called the “Mourning Dress” and the lace-like texture is beautiful. I love the style, and the accent buttons! To go with my pretty new dress, I found this darkly sweet looking skin from My Ugly Dorothy, the lips make me wonder what exactly happened, but somehow they suit the outfit perfectly! No dress would be complete without accessories. Considering opal is the gemstone for October, this pretty lace and opal choker with matching earrings from Maven Designs are more than perfect! Every outfit needs just the right pair of shoes! I adore peep-toe shoes, and I think these heels by Blackburn are adorable with this dress.

Pru is wearing:

Headband – CDY [Headband] Pompom(red) – $10 Lindens on the Marketplace

Hair – Clawtooth: Could I Resist? (Bewitching Reds Pack) – Not Free

Gloomy Thought Shorties

I am absolutely in love with these peek-a-boo shorties! These mesh shorts are another group gift from Gloomy Thought. I can’t get over how sweet and sexy they are with the bum cleavage and the sweet bow in back! hehehe I chose a plain black tube top to go with these shorts, and I think my new skin from Ugly Dorothy goes equally as perfectly with this outfit as it did with the dress.
