Snow Gothic and Mage Red Makes for Perfect [Z]xen

I first fell in love with everything “Gothic” when I was eight years old. My babysitter was a teenage girl of about fifteen and my parents had gone out for “kid free” time, and she was doing her homework and reading Edgar Allen Poe’s “The Raven” to me. After that I was hooked.

And then she let me read over her shoulder, and I read, “For Annie” for the very first time as well. Perhaps “For Annie” is not about Vampires at all… but I thought it was! And even at the tender age of eight, I wanted to be a vampire!

“Thank Heaven! the crisis —
The danger is past,
And the lingering illness
Is over at last —
And the fever called “Living”
Is conquered at last.”

[from “For Annie” by Edgar Allen Poe]

I think that is why the ensemble that I put together this week really appeals to me! [MC] Mystic Canvass is — first, and foremost — a fabulous one-stop-shop if you are looking for quality Roleplay skins that won’t break your pocketbook. Many of them are priced at only 99L$ for a full pack, and that includes a bonus shape as well as Lolas and/or other great appliers. The store also has a terrific variety of affordable cosmetics and mesh accessories that are out-of-this-world unique. And with this gorgeous Skin as their current FREE Group Gift (Group is 0L to Join!) coming in 4 skin tones with Lolas, Phat Azz, and Slink Appliers? How can a classic Gothic Vampire girl like me go wrong?!

Of course, I did not want to be a glittery vampire! No! No Twilight sparklers here! Growing up, I wanted to know Dracula and Dark Shadows and vampires like Louis de Pointe du Lac. I wanted pale skin, red lips, crimson eyes, blood that ran cold, and a heart that was colder! Because somehow… I thought it was like being a thorned rose — the ultimate thing of danger… power… and beauty. And yes… even as a tender young girl of only eight years old, I knew it.

“My tantalized spirit
Here blandly reposes,
Forgetting, or never
Regretting its roses —
Its old agitations
Of myrtles and roses:”

[from “For Annie” by Edgar Allen Poe]

So I pulled up Market place for a little help in completing my classic Vampire look — one I was sure would make Bram Stoker himself proud!

I didn’t manage to find a proper Edgar Allen Poe raven that suited me, but this amazing fitmesh dress by +Nocturna+ features a detailed owl print that is a stand-out and the dress pack includes both fitmesh as well as standard mesh sizes and can be found on the Marketplace for only 10L. A little more searching and I was able to complete my Gothic beauty with a set of Mage Red eyes by Imperium which were also found on the Marketplace (a steal of a deal for eyes this sharply detailed at only 9L$!) and last but not least I topped it off with an intricately wrought necklace in black by ~Edenia — another great FREE find on the Marketplace!

Much ♥’s

Hello again, my Dear FabFree Folks! I have returned from the Highlands! I told you, y’all couldn’t get rid of me that easily.  So while shuffling through vacation snaps and doing loads of laundry I knew I had to make time to jump back in world and visit the We ♥ Role Play May event.

WLRP_001

This round of We ♥ Role Play, is the Second Anniversary of the shopping event and tons of the designers have set out free and almost free ‘Happy Birthday’ gifts. Plus, many designers have out special items for 10L or less. First up is the Reverie Ring from Empyrean Forge. The gold ring comes with a HUD to change the center stone with six colors to choose from.

Next up is the Tinuviel Crown from Evie’s Closet. I love the delicate leaves and pearls on this crown. The gift includes a matching collar with the same ethereal build.

Last but not least is another sweet little ring from Fawny. The Sweet Rose ring in gold is another delicate piece and I love the simple style.

The $L10 version of the Patience gown from Heaven & Earth comes in a beautiful red and gold print and looks like it would be perfect for a night out, or even for RP! I’ve given it a bit of an RP look with a belt and jewelry set from Luas, and a head piece from Frogstar. I love the combo of the red and gold in the fabric, and the pattern is just gorgeous! If you get a chance to do a little shopping, the hair I have on is FREE right now for Milk Hair group members, and my skin is just $L75 from Lumae! The hair I have on was also shown by Flora [HERE] a few days ago!

The Breakfast at Tiffany’s Hunt!

Greetings fashionably fabulous ones!

My  post today is ALL about The Breakfast at Tiffany’s Hunt!  This hunt is based on the classic movie Breakfast at Tiffany’s starring Audrey Hepburn.  It’s one of those movies that stands the test of time and did it with fashionable flair.  I won’t give away to many details of the movie, in this post, just in case you want to watch it.  The link I am providing, for The Breakfast at Tiffany’s Hunt, will take you to the page that will give you photos of the hunt items from each creator, SLURLS and hints.  The hunt consists of clothing and home decor items…which I will feature today.  ALL items in the hunt are FREE.

In the first shot I am showing the fabulous outfit from Brii Underground Wear (#5 on the hunt list) and it includes the jacket, pencil skirt, glasses (not worn), makeup (not worn), peeptoe shoes (not worn) and hat.  The Suitcase with Telephone is from Resplendent Rose (#9 on the hunt list) and the projector, table, extra movie reels, tub sofa, cat with no name, record player and projector screen are all part of the Audrey Cinema Set hunt gift from Arcana Antiques & Oddities (#15 on the hunt list).  The cigarette holder, from Bloody Mess, is no longer available.  My Zebra Peeptoe Heels, worn in all photos, are from Babydoll (#95 on the hunt list) for the Sexy and I know it Hunt.  The Sexy and I know it Hunt ended on May 18th but the hunt symbol and shoes were still there when I checked earlier today!

The Dark Side of the Sun

The Candy Factory Event has started! It’s a few days into the event which runs until the 14th of May. This round the theme is “sun” and let me tell you, things are looking bright! I am so excited to show you some of what you can find. Of course I had to start off with a personal favorite, Plastik.  I’ve loved their products from the moment I knew of their existence! If you’re not familiar with their stuff, it’s at times a little dark, a little bit fantasy, and a lot of fun. Plastik is offering a sexy set of horns, collars, and matching jewelry in a gacha style. Take a look at the picture below, and check out the detail on the little sun medallion! I’m really loving this set. There are several other pieces to be had, so don’t miss out!

Here are the details, Enjoy!
