Ice Dreams

Ice Dreams

Nostalgia.

Things disappear in Second Life really quickly don’t they? I was going through my landmarks folder and discovered that some of the places that I used to visit have either changed drastically or are altogether gone. It was a bit of a relief to discover that Ice Dreams and the picturesque boardwalk that it’s standing on is still there. The Baja Norte sim was one of the very first sims I visited when I rezzed and I still remember trying to figure out how camera angles and windlight settings worked right in front of this little ice cream stall. Those attempts have long been bined (why I thought neon, drop waist medieval gowns were a good idea is beyond me) though I think that the results of my second attempt could certainly be a keeper.

Here are the details;

 All it takes is an inspiring hat,

Being on a bit (loosely putting it) of a hat binge recently, I was pleasantly surprised to discover that the updated Fabulously Free In SL group gift from Belle Epoque was a simple yet elegant straw hat. It was as if I couldn’t get it out of the box fast enough, oohing and ahhing all the way at its pretty textures and the white ribbon detailing around its crown. It added a nicely feminine touch especially when paired together with the green leaves and lovely white carnations that sit on one side of the hat’s brim. To get a little bit more technical about things, the hat comes with a nifty resizer script and permissions are set to copy so that you can make as many backups as you want.

Well, it looks like I’m ready to keep the sun out of my eyes this upcoming Spring; and all for free too as there is no cost to join the Fabulously Free in SL group. Just wear your group tag when clicking on the vendor and you’ll be good to go. Still hazy on how to join the group? Visit this page {HERE} and take a step closer to collecting all the free gifts that we have on our listing.

A generous gift card,

Last Friday, Pru did a post about FabFree Designer Ollie’s Follies and my curiosity was piqued when I saw that they were offering a 100L gift card on their midnight mania board. She went on to detail that a group tag was not needed to smack the board and with a very low goal (10!) to lock the it, I couldn’t resist popping down to give it a tap as well. With my free gift card in hand I explored Ollie’s Follies further and found not a few things that caught my fancy. Foremost was the Lysa dress which comes in an array of colors and prints (pictured is the pale blossom color). The style of the dress, with it’s V-shaped neckline and belted waist went quite nicely with Belle Epoque’s Straw Hat and the girly look I was going for. The Lysa dress comes in five standard mesh sizes, though there are sizes for mesh bodies sold separately at the store as well, with a good alpha layer included. Usually this classic little number is priced at 150L though with my gift card activated I ended up only forking out 50L for it which was just wonderful. While you’re there at Ollie’s Follies don’t forget to grab your Fabulously Free in SL group gift as well!

Great weekly deals,

It’s 50 Linden Fridays again! There’s a great group of designers for this round that will surely leave you spoiled for choice. I’ve never missed on getting a hair pack from Wasabi Pills every time they participate in 50 Linden Fridays and this week was no different. The side swept Olivia hairstyle was a great whimsical fit to today’s outfit and comes with a Hud of 7 varied colors to choose from.

The second item I picked up from this week’s 50 Linden Fridays was the Kismet socks from Luxuria. These delicate over the knee socks with its pretty lace fringe comes in eight solid colors (white shown in picture) and can be used by most avatars as it comes in the following sizes:

  • System layer for classic avatars
  • Appliers for Maitreya, Slink and mesh bodies compatible with the omega system.

If you’d like either item for your virtual inventory, it’s highly recommended that you do so quickly as these deals are available for Friday only.

And a ton of likes.

Remember those heels from Essenz that I blogged about a couple of days ago (hint hint)? Well, since achieving 2500 likes on Facebook, the store is giving away a set of the Paris heels in neutral colors for free! While I already own the shoes in those lovely pink shades, it’s pretty great to receive additional colors for it. The gift package includes sizes for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink mesh feet with a shoe base to help with the fitting. There’s also an easy to use Hud which lets you switch between three colors for the main body of the shoe as well as its sole and fittings. Congratulations Essenz! Hurry down to the store to grab your pair today as these heels are only available until the 19th.

And that’s a wrap. The sun’s going down on Baja Norte and I should go and see if those walruses in the distance would like to share an ice cream cone or four with me. Catch you later and have fun out there guys!

Accessorize Your Fantasy!

Roleplay and fantasy have always been a huge part of my Second Life experience, and truly great roleplay outfits are usually defined by their accessories. So! This accessories post is all about accessories for different types of roleplay or fantasies!

Accessories Day Post Picture 1

I put together this whimsical outfit with a FREE soft yellow dress by antielle. which I found on the marketplace. It might be new to some of you as it hasn’t been blogged in a while, but some time back, Tiana Omizu showed the dress HERE. It’s a lovely mesh little number in a soft yellow and all the standard sizes. But we all know that a dress is just a dress unless you add the right details. Accessorize!

To add my fantasy feel to this dress I donned this amazing Coral Witch Headress in gold (there are five colors in the Marketplace pack) from Aii ~ The Ugly and the Beautiful. The 5-pack of colors is only 10L and these headresses are modifiable as well!

My Earcuffs are by PoshTale and are a FREE Marketplace gift. These are colorchange with three color choices. I went with the gold, but you could chose red or blue. They fit perfectly over human shaped ears to add an elven and fantasy feel.

Hair – Magika – Now
Dress – antielle. Marin Magique Sunny! Gift (0L/FREE on the Marketplace/ First shown HERE by Tiana Omizu)

Sometimes roleplay or fantasies go a bit darker… for those days (or nights!) I found a great one stop shop for you. Tabou! Here you can pick up three group gifts sure to make for some steamy fantasy roleplay. Currently the Tabou Group is FREE to join and you can pick up this blindfold, septum nose piercing and bracelet as FREE gifts. I did edit the bracelet by moving it up to make an armlet, as it’s modifiable. So if you have a bit of editing skills, I imagine you could make it into an anklet or other versatile piece!

Hair – Exile – Temptation Waits
Bra – {Luxuria} Naughty Rose in Black
Blind Fold – Tabou – Blind Love – Bloody (0L/FREE Group Gift/Free to Join Group)

I’ve always thought that Greek and Romanesque roleplay looked lovely and inviting. The feel of it to me is divine! I put on a simple silk as my base, but that is never enough to give you the proper look. To get the look I wanted, I finished off this silk with two great accessories from two amazing stores.

First, stop by Luas Urban Style. My Owl Jewel Set is a FREE lucky letter board available to Luas group members. The group is FREE to join. It includes the necklace and earrings shown above, as well as a ring (not shown).

I picked up the bold Gadhra Metals necklace from Salt & Pepper. It is their most recent group gift. The gift is FREE with group membership. The group is 100L to join but the frequent, quality gifts make it well worth joining. This was a set which included matching earrings as well (not shown), and the set is also color change for several metal choices.

Sometimes we all need something a little whimsical and innocent. Remember when the tooth-fairy was real and we still believed in unicorns? I love this FREE February Group gift from [MUSE] NSP Florals. The little Unicorn Daisy is sweet as can be. The group is 75L to join, but with great monthly offers like this, it is worth the investment.

To wrap up, we all have our wild side! I began my look by picking out this outfit called Antiope by Sweet Lies from the Marketplace. It is only 59L and modifiable for an easy fit. It has a feel that is perfect for lots of roleplay settings, which I love!

To give it a finishing touch, I added another Marketplace item: a 1L gift from Old World — this Medieval Fish Bone Necklace. The Necklace has all the terrific details we know and love Old World for, and for the sweet little price of 1L, it is a terrific touch to finish off a wild look.

Friday Retail Therapy

FLF

Good Morning, I hope all you Fab Free’rs are doing fine! I don’t know about you, but I could use a little “retail therapy”. It’s been a long week and Fifty Linden Friday is one of my favorite excuses to go shopping. Generally speaking I always find at least one thing on the FLF list that I just can’t live without. This week, I found several!

I love it when Wasabi Pills is participating in FLF, I get the opportunity to purchase one of their hairstyles in this lovely shade of purple. The “Chrystal Violet” and “Chrystal Pink” hair tones are exclusive to FLF and are not sold any other time. Today’s style is a pretty long layered look, and it includes a “boobs” version for the curvier ladies.

Now we all know how much I like lingerie, and I was super excited when I saw this super feminine lingerie set as the FLF item at Luxuria. I like the subtle pattern on this bra and pantie set, and the additional touch of the satin-looking trim gives this already beautiful set an elegant feel. The set comes with regular system layers, along with appliers for Slink Physique, Maitreya Lara, and Lolas Tango.

Last but not at all least, I have to tell you about this hanging chair from Pilot. I have been eyeing these chairs at Pilot forever, and I’ve always been either too cheap or too broke to buy them! Needless to say, I was thrilled to see this nautical themed version of the chair as one of their FLF items for today. The chair is mesh and includes menu-driven solo and couples poses.

Bijou + Tekla Candy = Total Cuteness!!

Hello Fabulouses!!

BijouTekla1

As I mentioned in my last post, I had more to show you from —– Bijou ! —–, and this time I’ve added some fun sneakers and a lip piercing from another new to me shop, Tekla Candy.

First, let me tell you about this super cute Tahiry Outfit from —– Bijou ! —–. It was free from one of the two Midnight Mania boards located in the store, and when the relatively easy to reach target of 30 was met, I received the mesh bandana top in several different colours, as well as the, super curvy, mesh blue jeans. Both the tops and the jeans have the 5 standard sizes, so everyone is sure to get a good fit. For those of you who are a little more modest, be warned,  the black bra I am wearing is my own, this outfit does not come with any kind of bra or undershirt. There is also a male Midnight Mania board as well, and these boards change after every round. The day after I won this outfit, there was a very sexy string bikini for the ladies on the board, and when I went back today, there was a different outfit all together. So it is worth checking back each day to see what is available.

Now, those fun sneakers I have on, that seem to match this outfit perfectly, they are from Tekla Candy, a cute little shop that was full of fun clothing in bright colours, perfect for me! The *TC* Hollah Sneakers in Cutie are actually one of two free group gifts at the moment, and the group is free to join. The texturing on them is incredible, you truly have to see them to understand. I also mentioned the lip piercing I am wearing, the *TC* – Star lip piercings Rainbow. It is one of the several lucky board gifts available, and does not require a group tag to win. The prizes on these boards are varied, so if the piercing is not your taste, have a look anyways.

I also wanted to quickly point out the lovely eyeshadow I am wearing. I was lucky enough to find the Sheady Starfall Eyeshadow Set on the Marketplace. You get 4 different tones, as well as a star tattoo that sits just under the corner of your right eye. The price? L$0, how can you beat that!

Well, I hope you enjoyed this post, I certainly enjoyed putting this look together. It’s just so much fun…and colourful, and you know by now how much I love colour 😉 Hope you have a great day, until next time! *waves*
