Sir Edward

Sir Edward

If you’ve considered the roleplay scene, but have not yet dived in, and you’d like a set of FREE roleplay clothes to get started with, I would highly recommend stopping by Empire of Quality to pick up their FREE to all gift for men. They currently have out two panels called “Sir Edward” that give boxes to customers. Simply buy them for 0L.

One box is called “Sir Edward *dark” and in it you will find a pair of system pants, a system shirt, as well as a resizable flexi kilt and sculpted belt. These items are incredibly well textured. This box includes the burgundy and coal color shown, as well as a shirt with navy highlights, and one with royal purple highlighting. The other “Sir Edward” FREE to all gift comes in a variety of blue shades if that is your preference. Add a pair of boots and some roleplay props and you’ll be set for roleplay adventures!

Coquette

30L Saturday is always prime time to stock up on your roleplay wardrobe, and this Saturday was no exception! I found a couple of pieces that I fell in love with this morning and wanted to share with you!

Coquette

This Dionne Gown in Bronze is by Velvet Whip. I’m showing it to you without the optional scarf and undershirt, as I also picked up the silver owl Coquette necklace that you can see in the close-up below. The necklace is also from Velvet Whip. Each piece is only 30L each, and makes for a stunning addition to a medieval or gorean roleplay wardrobe.

The dress comes in all the standard mesh sizes as well as three fitmesh sizes, so you are sure to find a good fit. The necklace is copy and modify to allow for adjustments as well, making 30L a great price for this beautiful piece.

Be sure to hurry though, these deals are only for today!

Siren Today

Siren Today 1

It’s been a while since I roleplayed my sexy siren! But I was inspired to bring her out of my inventory by a couple of beautiful 30L Saturday offerings today! If you stop by Whatz main-store, you can pick up the Ariel outfit in deep blue today for only 30L. It includes this mesh mermaid skirt in all the standard sizes, the starfish belt, and the starfish half-top. All the pieces are mesh and fit like a dream.

Siren Today 2

I wanted some pretty jewelry to compliment my look… all us water-folk love the shinies of course 😉

I found just what I wanted at Jinx. Now in the picture above I’m actually only wearing the jewelry from what is a full mesh outfit that you’ll get for your 30L! Since I’m only sporting the jewelry, I am showing you the vendor advertisement for the full outfit below. So my 30L for the jewelry, not only spiced up my Siren’s attire, but also scored me a beautiful and versatile second outfit! Win, win!

Enjoy your Saturday! I’m off for a swim!

Just for Today

Just for Today

I love Saturday! And I love Saturday more when the 30L list comes out and I find something perfect to wear!

This week I fell in love with PoshTale‘s 30L offering. If you stop by the main-store location, you can pick up the Alysanne dress for just 30L. It includes the dress, the arm warmers and the scarf… plus a color change hud. The hud offers you 6 different colors and changes each different item separately so you can get a bit of mix and match (like I did in the picture above). Each part also attaches as a separate piece, again allowing you more dressing options!

This dress is mesh in all the standard sizes and for this much versatility and color, 30L is a steal! It’s just for today! So don’t miss out!

Medieval Camp Out

When was the last time you went camping? Nooooo… I don’t mean in the great outdoors! I mean sitting your avatar in one of those chairs that gives you a great gift! If you haven’t done it in a while, the outfit below from C&N is a good reason to do so. You can always sit your avatar in the chair while you are away having dinner or if you need to answer some pesky emails! Either way, this prize is well worth the goods if you are a serious medieval or gorean roleplayer.

Medieval Camp Out

The Medieval Greatjon Outfit above is just one of the offered 90 minute camping chair prizes at C&N Designs. Currently there are 2 camping chair prizes for men, 2 lucky letter chair prizes, and 1 lucky letter board prize. You’ll need to be in the group to get access to these FREE gifts. This will set you back a one-time fee of 25L, but all the offered gifts are excellent, and the lucky letter board/chairs randomly switch out, for a variety of outfits.

I was really pleased at the end of my 90-minute camp out when my Greatjon Outfit was delivered. It comes fully outfitted (yes pun intended) with all the goods. You get the system clothing layers as well as appliers for Omega and the Mesh project. It also comes with the mesh gloves, boots, and the belt with the attached dagger. It’s the full kit and caboodle… FREE! Well free except for your time. But I was busy having dinner anyway!

Medieval Camp Out 2

When I got back to my keyboard and discovered that I was on the last leg of my “camping trip”, I was lucky enough to see that my letter had come up on the lucky letter board… and so I also picked up one of the FREE random prizes on the lucky letter board from C&N. I wanted to show you the great quality of these roleplay outfits as well. This is the Medieval Viking Outfit in Red. It too is the full outfit with bracers and boots included. It is system layers only (no appliers for mesh bodies), but still of outstanding quality for roleplay and well worth the 25L group join fee for a chance at any of these lucky letter chairs or boards.

The other camping chair had a gift well worth camping for as well, but dinner was done and I had things to do. I may pick that one up on another evening.

So until next time… roleplay on!

Blessing Abi

Blessing Abi

I’m back with another pretty roleplay outfit for you! This lovely floral camisk is the FREE April Group Gift from EvelineInTheBox and it is a winner for sexy roleplay style! (Though with something this pretty you could wear it out of roleplay too!). The gift is yours FREE with your Group Tag and the Group is FREE to join. You get all the standard mesh sizes.

Blessing Abi 2

I also wanted to show you another pretty hunt item from the Medieval Fantasy Hunt XV. I stopped by Acios along the Blessing Path and picked up the FREE hunt gift… this dainty necklace with its healer symbol on a blue disk. This would be perfect for someone who roleplayed a healer in a medieval roleplay sim. Acios is also giving away a Curse path gift FREE as well, which is equally nice… another necklace in a fiery red. It too is well worth hunting for!

Enjoy the rest of your evening!

Corset-ed Fairy

Corset-ed Fairy

I decided to put my roleplay hat on… or rather my wings on! Because I found an amazing little FREE in-store mini hunt at Tiar that is not to be missed. Right now if you bunny hop to Tiar, the creator is hosting an in-store mini Easter Egg hunt where you can get free goodies. There are eggs full of prizes all over the store. You have to be within 10 meters of the eggs to get the goods, so no cam-touching, but its well worth the hop around the store.

I picked up this FREE Princess Corset in all the standard sizes as one of the hunt gifts, as well as these FREE wings in black in one of the eggs. There were many many more wonderful gifts… so jump over to Tiar and fill your basket!

The Homeward Star

The Homeward Star

I think it’s safe to say I love roleplay… AND the Cart Sale! And when I saw Anachron‘s Homeward Star Chitons for only 10L each I was over the moon! There are six amazing colors for you to choose from for only 10L each and they come in all the standard mesh sizes. These are perfect for fantasy settings or even for every day wear if you like. I paired mine with a set of flats but you could go barefoot or put on heels if you wanted.

The Homeward Star 2

And Moon {Hair} has done it again! Hurry, Hurry! Get to Moon and slap that Midnight Mania board! There is a beautiful new hair called la Vie en Rose, this time in pastels on the board. It locks down fast, so don’t delay. It is FREE if you get on the board before it locks and it will be sent to you at midnight. You do need the group tag to slap the board, which will set you back 100L, but the board changes out as frequently as I change hair styles. I can barely keep up! It is SO worth the join fee! And I really love the pretty flowers in this soft and feminine style!

Sweet Lies on the Throne

Sweet Lies on the Throne 1

“War was easier than daughters.” [Ned Stark – Game of Thrones]

Daffy’s GadgetMania has decided to participate in the Get To Know Us Hunt and is generously serving up three FREE glorious prizes… this throne called Gift 2-DS-666 Gothic/Gorean Throne being one of the three. It is fit for a king… or a Queen… or a man home from war with too many daughters who needs to relax a little. It has tons of poses built into the main seat and on the sides as well (on the pillows) and against the arms and the entire kit and kaboodle is only 13 prim. For a huge throne this detailed, that’s impressive! And less stressful for Ned Stark than war OR daughters!

Now, prewarning… these three hunt prizes by Daffy’s GadgetMania are FREE… but the hunt is not for the faint of heart. The store is adult themed in a bit of a horror type manner. The hunt itself is based on a series of clues within the store and is a set of steps before the prize reveals itself. If haunted houses or disturbing images are too much for you, this store’s hunt is not for you (I did the rest of the stores on this mini hunt and they were not gruesome, only this one). The prize is worth it, but I don’t want anyone to say “why didn’t you warn me about the blood?!” Well… aren’t many thrones won by a sword, spear, and blood? (At least in Game of Thrones, right?)

Sweet Lies on the Throne 2

“Life is not a song, Sweetling. You may learn that one day to your sorrow.” [Littlefinger to Sansa Stark – Game of Thrones]

You may not decide to sing a song in this lovely toga style dress called Lucrecia Green by Sweet Lies (which comes in the style shown or in a more risky adult style that shows much much more skin) but you’ll look daring and beautiful rather in song or in sorrow while wearing it — whether it be next to the throne or sitting on it.  Better yet, this fabulous get up comes with jewelry included (a necklace, armlets, and anklets) and is FREE by slapping the Midnight Mania board at Sweet Lies. The board requires group membership but that too is FREE, fear not and cry not!

The dress is mesh, comes in all the standard mesh sizes and is perfect for roleplay. The jewelry comes in both scripted and unscripted versions for re-sizing and the scripted versions have an option to remove the script once you are done to save on lag. It’s a sweet deal from Sweet Lies!

Sweet Lies on the Throne 3

“Freedom means making your own choices.” [Daenerys – Game of Thrones]

… and I choose to sit on the throne! At least briefly. And in this lovely little number called Etel by Sweet Lies, which is another FREE offering currently up on the Midnight Mania Boards. Again, you’ll need the group (FREE join) to slap the board, but this Mesh outfit in all the standard sizes with all its included accessories is worth the group space and the time to slap the board. Don’t miss out!

There are six total Midnight Mania boards up if neither of these outfits catch your fancy! Be sure to see if you like any of the others available! I managed to snag and close down 4, but am only showing 2 here. There is also one up for guys!

Sweet Lies on the Throne 4

“You could rattle the stars. You could do anything, if only you dared. And deep down you know it, too. That’s what scares you most.” [Elena – Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas.]

If you are looking for something more queenly, more stately, more fierce… I have just the look for you. In this attire any woman could rattle the stars.

Sweet Lies currently has a gorgeous array of 30L gachas available in-store. I found two that were simply my favorite and paired them together to get this look. The dress is called Tauriel and the detailing is amazing (can you believe this is one of the commons? Imagine the rares!) and for 30L a spin you are getting an amazing deal. These dresses are also fitmesh (swoons).

I paired the dress with a 30L spin on the Savage Spring Armor & Crown Gacha and was granted a Rusty Gold which was a perfect match for my look. For just 30L you get both the pauldrons AND the matching crown in the box (woot! woot!) and you don’t have to spin multiple times to try to match the two like with many gachas. So I simply adored this gacha and this outfit pairing! A deal for sure!

An Enchanted Oceane

The Enchantment Hunt drew me back again, as well as the chance to show off some fabulous goodies at two other stores. If your into cosplay or fantasy roleplay… this is your month to make away like a bandit — or mermaid as the case may be!

Enchanted Oceane [2]

I recently checked out the FREE Ball at Analog Dog and discovered it had been updated. There are a few new styles inside, including this great rigged mesh style called Lolly all for FREE. It comes in light reds with a color change hud and though you have to hunt for the nearly transparent bubble at the back of the sim, it’s well worth the search!

I also stopped by Oceane and played the in-store Gachas which had some really wonderful prizes for lovers of fantasy avatars! My Oceane Lauren Fantasy Skin in Blue was a 75L gacha prize and was just perfect for this underwater look — but don’t hesitate to check this one out even if blue is not your color, because the gacha had 19 total colors as possible prizes. It does not come with appliers, but don’t let that deter you. I usually have a difficult time matching skins without them, but was able to match this skin to my Slink hands within minutes because the shading near the wrists is made to blend so easily.

I also played the Oceane Fairytale Lips gacha and landed the Rainbow Rare hook line and sinker to add to my skin. Woot! It was only 50L per spin and added a nice touch to this fantasy skin.

And all mermaids have to eat, yes? If you peek at the picture below, my fun Swallow Yum Fishie (20 possible colors) was a 15L Gacha prize also from Oceane.

Enchanted Oceane [1]

And the Enchantment hunt continues, but only until September 5th, so be sure to make your final rounds to pick up the fabulous gifts before you miss out. In this post, I’m showcasing a few more for you! These two poses are the FREE hunt gifts from [Black Tulip] called Ariel. Astrid’s stunning mesh mermaid tail and bra are the FREE Enchantment gift from Mer-Chandise Cove.

You’ll have to look a little closer at the pictures to catch the final gifts I’m showing, but I’ve always been a firm believer that small details are what make an avatar stand out. My pink nose piercing (which comes with a color change hud offering over 20 color options as well as options to change glow, glossiness, and and brightness) is the FREE Enchantment Hunt Gift from Gaeline Creations.

If you take a swim by no.Match, you’ll be able to pick up this gorgeously detailed Mermaids Hairpin as their FREE offering for the Enchantment Hunt. And last (but certainly not least) Astrid’s mysterious, come-hither eyes are a FREE Enchantment Hunt gift from antielle. There are six generous color choices in the package, though I’m wearing the blue.
