Crossbones

Snapshot_001

Good morning, FabFree! I’m feeling my Gothic side this morning, and I have just the FREE goodies to help you feel your Gothic side too! We going to make a two different stops and put together a fun FREE outfit.

First, head to Kreepshow Kouture, and slap the two Midnight Mania Boards. Both of them are FREE and do not require a group. It only takes 50 slaps to lock these babies down, and from what I saw yesterday, they lock down multiple times a day (unless that has changed since then). I’m showing you the Crossbone Cami, which is one of the two prizes you can win when the boards lock down.

Once you win the Cami, unboxing this jumper is quite a treat. It comes in all the standard fitmesh sizes, as well as Maitreya, and Slink and its own alpha is included as well.

Snapshot 4_001

My FREE Septum piercing is courtesy of Krova and is an SLB13 gift at We❤ RP. It was quite large when I put it on, making me believe it was intended for male avatars (it was also silver) but I happily discovered that it was modifiable. To get the look I wanted, I sized it down with some editing, added a gold tint to it, made it full bright to give it a bit of a “sheen” and voila! You may wish to make it other colors!

My necklace is yet another SLB13 gift FREE from We❤ RP… this time from Souzou Eien. This lacy Renaissance Pearls necklace added a feminine touch to my Gothic attire that I thought was just perfect. 😉

Day Eagle

Day Eagle

I love exploring new locations in Second Life… and coming across the Sim “Light Thoughts” was a lucky find. It’s a fantastic art installment with all sorts of dramatic color. It was also, I thought, the perfect back drop for the outfit I wanted to show off to you… since I also have a thing for latex😉

House of Ruby has out a new unisex outfit called Bijou. The regular price is 176L but right now you can pick up the Jet Nut color (I’m sporting it in the picture above) for only 75L at the creator’s in-world store or on the marketplace. You’ll get Slink and Omega appliers for mesh bodies. Note: there are NO system layers for this latex outfit.

I also wanted to show off another one of the Suicide Gurls group gifts, in case you haven’t yet dove in and decided to join up and grab the gifts. Remember, these tattoos are unisex. The tattoo in these pictures is the February group gift (yup its still out! Six months of gifts for your one time fee of 150L!) and is called Valborg. It comes in system layers as well as appliers for Omega, Maitreya, Belleza, and Slink. You also get the tattoo in fresh, faded and soft.

Day Eagle 2

I made one more stop before heading over to enjoy the sights at the art installment: the Cart Wash Sale. I couldn’t resist taking a peek at all the Carts this morning. I picked up this men’s Gold Eagle Necklace for just 10L at the Luminesse Cart. There are several other men’s offerings at the Cart as well as some lovely lady’s offerings as well. It’s a Cart chock full of beautiful jewelry and at only 10L each, not to be missed.

If you love Junbug dresses… today is your lucky day! Junbug has generously set out their beautiful mesh Antoinette dress in three different colors for just 30L each. I’m showing you the lovely lavender shade  in the picture above. This dress has a cinched waist and a full skirt with a pretty bust on it and is classic Junbug quality. It would be beautiful for a formal setting… or perfect for roleplay. But don’t delay! This is a Saturday only deal! You only have until the stroke of midnight SLT!

Soft Lavender 2

I paired my new pretty Junbug dress with the latest June group gift from Ecco Jewelry. The group fee is 200L but remember… you get access to lots of past group gifts and in addition there is a group exclusive lucky letter board inside the store for shoppers. And that’s not all! There are two additional lucky boards in the main-store that are completely FREE… no group required! This pretty necklace comes with a color change hud that allows you to choose between three metal choices: silver (shown), gold, or black — for lots of versatility!

Happy Saturday!

Be Mine… Even In April

Be Mine... Even In April

When you need something to unwind in at the end of the day, House of Ruby has the perfect duo — matching guy’s briefs and lady’s lingerie. This set is yours FREE as a subscribo gift if you stop by the main-store and click the subscriber. In the box you’ll find a system layer of men’s briefs as well as men’s appliers for slink men’s mesh bodies and an omega applier as well. For ladies you’ll find Slink and Omega appliers for mesh bodies (there are no system layers for ladies).

Loki stopped by Legal Insanity and picked up the February group gift which is FREE and still out. It is this dual set of men’s and lady’s “Be Mine” necklaces. The gift includes both a copy/no transfer version and a no copy/transfer version of the men’s and lady’s style each. That means that rather you are a guy or a gal, if you pick up the gift, you’ll have one for yourself and one to give as a gift to someone else! Better yet, the 99L group gift fee is made well worth your Linden… there is an entire wall filled with lady’s and men’s past gifts, varying from clothing in different seasons to jewelry, all still available for just 1L each with your Legal Insanity group tag!

Show Your Pride

Show Your Pride 2

One of the best things about Second Life is the diversity… and April marks the start of the Femboy Hunt. There are quite a few stores in Second life which are friendly to Femboy and LBGT fashion, one of which is Brocade Tiger. For this hunt in particular, Brocade Tiger is featuring a 2L gift that is not to be missed… these “Pride Blue Jeans” with their rainbow look and bedazzled back pockets. For just 2L and a little hunting time, these quality mesh jeans in all the standard sizes are well worth picking up. They even include a fantastic attached rainbow mesh belt.

Show Your Pride

I figured Astrid wouldn’t be happy unless I showed a little more pride than just the jeans… so I scoured the marketplace and looked for some proper jewelry, and managed to find a reasonably priced necklace at C3. You can get their Gay Pride Necklace for just 10L. I did find that though the marketing says it is unisex it required a bit of editing to get it to fit a male form. It wasn’t difficult with a bit of patience, though, as the shape of the cord is well done.

I’m out for now… but I’ve got my rainbow on! Show your pride too if you are so inclined with these fantastic items.

Winter Blues

“I’ll have a blue Christmas without you
I’ll be so blue just thinking about you
Decorations of red on a green Christmas tree
Won’t be the same, dear, if you’re not here with me” [Elvis]

Elvis is in the snow! Err… in the pavilion. Err… in the house! Okay so this dress has me singing the blues, but not in a bad way! And you’ll be singing the blues too once you see how perfect this gown is for winter blues!

Winter Blues 1

“And when those blue snowflakes start falling
That’s when those blue memories start calling
You’ll be doin’ all right with your Christmas of white
But I’ll have a blue, blue, blue, blue Christmas” [Elvis]

A white holiday is traditional, but a blue one is stunning, especially in this gorgeous gown from The Beautiful Ones .:TBO:. called Selina Long Tail in Turquoise. One of the things I loved best about this formal holiday gown is that not only did it come in all the standard mesh sizes, but it also came in several fitted mesh sizes which accommodated my fuller and curvy avatar figure! Yay! I didn’t have to slim down my sliders at all to fit into this dress which just thrilled me!

You’ll find that there are two great ways you can take this dress home for the holidays when you stop by the TBO main-store. You can either pick it up as a FREE group gift (the group is 25L to join with later group gifts to pick up) OR if you are low on group space you can pick it up for the tiny fee of just 10L instead without the group join. A very nice offer indeed!

Winter Blues 2

“You’ll be doin’ all right with your Christmas of white
But I’ll have a blue, blue, blue, blue Christmas” [Elvis]

[MUSE] NSP Florals was doing it right in blue for their December gift as well with this lovely choker and earrings gift set which you can pick up FREE with your group tag (the group is 75L to join if you are not already a member, but offers beautiful monthly gifts for your small fee). This set is fully adjustable and resizable for the perfect fit and has a lustrous, almost snowflake affect that makes it perfect for holiday parties.

Who said white was the color of the season? Give me that blue, blue holiday. Sing it, Elvis!

Get ready for a blue, blue winter in style…

Summer in December

We are all used to Christmas in July, so how about Summer in December! After all, it’s Second Life! And it’s warm somewhere on the globe, right? There are plenty of beaches where you can show some skin, so I’ll show you where to find some skin to show!

Free Skin Day [FabFree] 1

Al Vulo is an old favorite of mine, and this classic skin called Celestial – Diva Olive is FREE with your FREE group join if you stop by the store. It’s an oldie but goodie with dramatic make up and glossy lips that just make you want to pucker up! It comes with appliers for WowMeh, Phat Azz, Slink hands and feet, and Lolas too!

And check out the hair?! Diva for sure! Though it’s actually called India and is a Midnight Mania Board Prize currently at Besom. This gorgeous hair is yours FREE if you slap the board and lock it down, and the Besom group is FREE to join!

Free Skin Day [FabFree] 2

If you are looking for a skin that has mature facial features, great details on the body (just look at that navel!) and lovely hip bone shadowing, then this gift skin called Lorna at New Faces is for you! This is another FREE gift with your FREE group join at the New Faces main store. Their are also some lovely make up gifts out there for you to pick up as well! This skin comes with a FREE sample shape as well, and if you want appliers you can pick those up in the store for reasonable prices.

Want to travel back in time instead? I found this great little gem of a necklace at Pixel Box. It looks like a compass but will also hold a photo. I popped into their main store and was able to buy it for just 50L. Many offerings their in store were 50L or less. And there was tons of gorgeous stuff. Well worth the stop!

Free Skin Day [FabFree] 3

Deesses Boutique is offering a lovely group skin at the moment called Anika. It includes appliers for Slink hands and feet and there are appliers in store for all of your other applier needs! This skin is FREE with your group tag. The group is 99L to join, but includes monthly gifts – there have been several times lovely mesh clothing has even been included in the monthly round up of goodies! – so the small fee is worth your while.

Free Skin Day [FabFree] 4

Are you loving this skin in the picture above? Me too! Stop by LoveMe Skins and it is yours FREE with your group tag if you join the group FREE too! This gift box contains the skin Kathleen in two skin tones (Tan or Sunkiss – Astrid is wearing Sunkiss in the picture above), two cleavage layers, two lipsticks, a free shape, and appliers for Slink hands and feet! What a deal!

Free Skin Day [FabFree] 5

We all know the girl who just can’t get a tan no matter how long she is in the sun. Yup! That’s the skin I’m sporting for this last great find! If you join the Mystic Canvass group FREE and stop by their store, you can pick up this gorgeous FREE group gift skin called Xen. Xen comes in 4 skin tones (Astrid is wearing Snow – the palest of the four) and the gift package includes appliers for Phat Azz, Lolas, Slink hands and feet, as well as two cleavage options for each skin tone and two eyebrow options (Classic or Dramatic). This would make a terrific roleplay skin if you are not wanting that ‘needs a tan’ look!😛

Were you admiring my beach wear? For just 75L per piece, you can dive into this deal on the MarketPlace and get this lovely Classic Bikini Bottom in Blue Stripes and/or the hawt to trot matching Halter Bikini Top, also in Blue Stripes. Just Because has swimwear (most all the pieces for 75L each) in different styles and colors for mix and match wear! A steal!

Finding Flowers in Your Soul’s Sanctuary

Finding Flowers in a Dark Sanctuary 1

The Twisted Hunt ends soon — October 19th to be exact — but it’s not too late to twist your way around the tunnels of cubes and grab last minute FREE gifts to round out your inventory! And I have a few goodies to share with you that you will NOT want to miss out on!

I’d never seen the Beyond the Dark store before, but instantly fell in love with the Gothic style shop and its Twisted Hunt gift… this Twisted Soul Sanctuary which is the setting for my pictures. It includes the crypt-like building and the candles. The candles are a mere 3 prim each, and the fabulously detailed building is 28 prim, and all of it is copyable and a completely FREE gift from Beyond the Dark as part of the Twisted Hunt. (The flower petals are part of my pose and are not included, just as a side note.)

You can also get a good look at my picture in the photograph above. This is a 1L gift simply called “<3” from Lilith’s Den. If you stop by the store, it will take a bit of looking, but check out the shelves when you enter. They are to your left and you’ll finding the painting on them there. The painting is no copy, but it is modifiable and transfer, and for 1L it is a real keeper!

Finding Flowers in a Dark Sanctuary 2

Astrid’s great outfit and jewelry are also courtesy of the Twisted hunt. If you drop by Acios they are hosting both a FREE female gift and a FREE male gift. I’m showing you the female gift — the Li-Ming Dress which comes with a hud to change it to either black or white. It comes in all the standard mesh sizes and is simply stunning.

I paired my outfit with FREE jewelry from *Amaranthus* courtesy of the Twisted Hunt called the Flower Medallion Set which is also unisex in that the package comes fully outfitted with both male and female jewelry. Included in the box was not only a necklace, earrings, and hairpins, but also broaches, cuff-links, and stopwatches (for left or right wear) so it would make a great find for any guy as well!

Winter is Coming for A Tiffany’s Bride

Sure, you could have a June wedding – but winter is coming. And for me there is something magical about the idea of a white wedding. And even if you aren’t planning a winter wedding… these gifts are too fabulous to pass up!

A Tiffany's Bride [1]

Right now if you stop by Tiffany Designs you can use your group tag to pick up this shimmering Jocey Bridal Gown in white for only 1L (the group is 50L to join). It includes Maitreya, TMP and Slink appliers as well as system layers for the body portion of the gown and though I’m usually a mesh-fan girl… this dress is perfect in flexi. Mesh could NOT have given this dress the ‘flow’ it needed with the glittering affect that the designer added into the flexi pieces, which are simply breathtakingly beautiful for your special day (or any formal dance really).

A Tiffany's Bride [2]

To add a little more sparkle to my Tiffany Design Jocey Bridal head piece, I hopped over to the Swank event, where I discovered that Zuri Rayna was giving away this lovely head piece in steel blue called Madeline. It is completely FREE, no group required. Just stop by the booth at Swank and pick it up!

And if that isn’t enough to convince you that all your second life dreams have come true, just check out this skin that Astrid is wearing? For me it was love at first sight! Who needs a groom? I love the soft freckles, the lovely shade of the lips, and the definition to the collarbones. And this Women’s Stuff Hunt gift from the Deluxe Body Factory was not only completely FREE but also contained Slink and Omega body appliers plus additional Omega lipstick appliers!

A Tiffany's Bride [3]

Of course… what wedding would be complete without a honeymoon? And Tiffany Designs didn’t let me down. Be sure to stop by the front desk on your way out and pick up this sexy Sara Lingerie in green for FREE (no group required for this one). This lovely little number came with system layers as well as Maitreya and TMP appliers to complete your look.

I also topped off my evening look with this sultry long loop necklace I found on Marketplace by Miam Miam. It is only 10L and has 15 color change options (I am showing the green because it matched the lingerie). It’s a piece of jewelry I’m sure I will find myself wearing again and again with that kind of versatility!
