Your Own Underdark!

In the dark_001

Your own Underdark…

It’s not often you get the chance to own your own Underdark, especially for the price of just 1L. Zyn is offering their Mini Underdark Skybox on the Marketplace for just that! 1L and it’s yours. It’s only 47 prim and it’s rather detailed, with multiple cavern rooms, a water pool, stalagmites and stalactites, mushrooms, lanterns, and more. The picture above is taken in part of one of the detailed caverns!

Ahhhh roleplay…

Roleplay is one of those fantastic past-times in Second Life and it’s always fabulous when you can come across some great gifts to add to your wardrobe. I stopped by the Menstuff lounge and there is a large assortment of menswear currently out that you can pick up for your one-time fee of 50L to the Menstuff group. Among the items was this “Morris” outfit. It’s really just a regular every day outfit, but since it doesn’t have any zippers and with the right accessories, I managed to turn it into a medieval one! It comes in a variety of mesh body sizes.

Outfit sizes available:

  • Classic XS-XL + alpha
  • Belleza
  • Gianni
  • Slink
  • TMP
  • Aesthetic

The details make the man

It’s the details that make this outfit work as a roleplay outfit. I stopped by Noble Creations and picked up some “details” to make this into a roleplay creation. The Noble Creations group is free to join and these gifts were free to pick up. I picked up the Prince in Leather neck piece to add over the top of the Morris shirt. I also picked up the Medici Pouch belt to add to my waist. Take note… this belt fit a little funny at first. I had to edit it to my shape, but it comes with a handy resizer that allows for resizing on all axises separately for a perfect fit!

The L’Homme Gift.

I think the L’Homme group gift from Noble Creations really makes this outfit. It’s a set of horned Bracers and Pauldrons that really stand out. You could add some weapons to this outfit to complete your look. Perhaps a shield and an axe or a sword and you’d be ready to go warrior! As always, the L’Homme group is free to join so this gift is free as well!

Happy roleplaying!

What’s in a cemetery?

Graveyard Presence_001

“What could you possibly hope to find in a cemetery?” The women said. “The dead tell no secrets and the living seldom come to visit them.”
― Felix Alexander, The Last Valentine

Many of my characters have roleplayed in cemeteries for various reasons. There is mystery and intrigue there. There is always a story to be had in a cemetery! Or someone’s story at least. When I put this roleplay outfit together for you, I immediately though… cemetery! And went to take a picture. But enough of the roleplay memories and onto the gifts!

Stop by for a treat!

Bluemoon Enterprise has out a great free roleplay outfit for February. Be sure to pick it up before the month is out. You’ll need the free to join Bluemoon group tag to pick it up. This Celtic Breeze outfit includes the pants, a skirt, the bracers, the top and the hood. The hood has a feature that allows you to wear it either up or down (I choose to wear the hood down) and the outfit comes in a single fitmesh size that I had no trouble making fit my Maitreya body.

Bluemoon Enterprise is housed inside of The White Armory. When you arrive at the entrance, go inside and then head to the Bluemoon store inside the large main-store building of The White Armory. You’ll find the Celtic Breeze gift inside of the smaller Bluemoon Building.

Another YM Gift

I showed you a group gift from the YM Shop in my post [Here] but there were so many on the wall that I picked up more than one. Among the free gifts I picked up with my free group join were the Beka boots. I discovered that these boots, although certainly suitable for modern wear, had a definite roleplay feel, and paired with my roleplay outfit from Bluemoon just perfectly.

  • These boots include a color change hud to change 4 different parts of the boots with 46 color options for each as well as 4 metal options for the rivets.
  • Sizes include: Slink Physique, Slink Hourglass, Mesh XXS – L

I hope you enjoy these gifts and happy roleplaying!

One Moment in Time

One Moment_001

It’s that one moment of magic when the moon is still out in the morning as the sun rises and both are out at the same time… The sky is a color that no painter can capture, but Lunaria almost captures the color on this free gift dress I found.

Annabel don’t cry for me…

I’m not sure if this free group gift dress by Lunaria called “Annabel” was meant to be a roleplay dress or not, but it sure would be perfect for one. If you’re not into roleplay, it’s beautiful for any other occasion as well, and it makes me think of moors and songs and poems by Edgar Allan Poe like “Annabel Lee.” The fabric is an amazing texture as far as the color… shimmering in different hues of blue with a sheer hem, and it comes in a variety of sizes for all your needs.

Sizes available:

  • Standard mesh XS – XL
  • Fitmesh XS – XL
  • TMP
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

If you love this dress, be happy! There was another free group gift out, as well as a Midnight Mania board, and three lucky letter boards too!

More magic.

As if this dress wasn’t enough to make my day, NSP Florals has out a magical gift right now in the form of this Pastoral Bliss Hair and Wreath. The hair has wisps around the face and a braid down the back. The hair and wreath are separate pieces, so you can wear the hair by itself, or pair the wreath with another hairstyle you already own if you like. You’ll only be getting the ginger color in the hair, but it is simply stunning, and I was happy to change out of my usual silver locks for the day.

NSP Florals has a one time join fee of 125L for their group, and you’ll need the group tag to pick up your gift, but the creator puts out a beautiful monthly gift. So if you join this month to get this gift, you’ll be set to get next month’s gift and all the gifts to come!

Just Boating Around

Boats_001

Roleplayers are you ready for amazing props! I have to give props to the Gacha Guardians for some amazing gifts that will have your roleplay enhanced if you stop by to pick up their free gifts! Props for everyone! And free too!

By the water

I stopped by the Gacha Guardians event and joined the free Gimme Gacha group (you’ll need the tag to get the gifts) and ran all over picking up the 38 free gifts that are scattered around the event. I set out two of them (but really they equate to three) here to share with you!

Just boating around

Unkindness has out a free gift you won’t want to miss! Stop by their gacha machine with your Gimme Gacha tag on and pick up their free gift of these Forgotten Oasis Boats. These one piece, highly detailed, mesh boats are only 9 prim when rezzed out and are really beautiful and perfect for any modern, medieval, or fantasy setting. They are perfect for enhancing a roleplay setting or any landscape really. And who can pass up free!

The bears the thing.

Breaux Jr. gave out a gift and at first I thought it was the box! I rezzed their box and it was this one prim adorable little baby bear! How cute is that?! And only 1 prim! Ohmygosh! He would make a great prop for any landscape!

Then I realized he was actually the box for another free gift that is inside him! “Open” him up and you get the free torch that I have rezzed out as well. This gift is also courtesy free of the Gacha Guardians event.

Lots more to be had!

Be sure to pick up all 38 free gifts. You never know what treasures you’ll find!

Dark Magick

Dark Magic

I’m stirring up a little magic in my roleplay today, courtesy of SLB 14! I visited the event and was thrilled to see that roleplayers were not left out of the free treats and gifts to be picked up.

Generosity…

I was amazed at the generosity of [Tia], the creator of the Grimoire Table you see in my photo above. It is the free gift you can buy for 0L if you visit the [Tia] booth at SLB 14. The table is all decked out with tons of detail, including lit candles and a rotating magical aura on the book on top. For all this detail it weighs in at a mere 5 prim. This is a must add to your inventory for roleplay furniture.

And my dress!

My dress is a free gift also. If you go to The White Armory, and head inside the main building, you will see that it also houses BlueMoon Enterprises, where you can pick up their latest free gift (the group is free to join), this Saoise Dress in Aqua. It comes in all the standard mesh sizes and includes a quality alpha so that you’ll be able to fit it to standard or mesh bodies either one. It’s perfect for some magical roleplay!

Bird of Paradise

Bird of Paradise

In real life, I don’t often have an occasion for dressing up in a formal gown. In second life, there are plenty of opportunities for donning a formal… ballrooms, date nights, roleplay, or just visiting a pretty and photogenic castle on the beach!

Be sure to remember…

… that The White Amory generously gives a free group gift every single Sunday. The group is free to join.

I picked up this Bird of Paradise gown yesterday and knew I had to show it off. While it could easily be fit for a princess or noble lady in a roleplay setting, you could also wear it to your favorite ballroom dance occasion as well. This dress comes in a variety of mesh sizes (more on that in a moment) and as a bonus, you’ll also get fully mesh white opera gloves to fit mesh bodies (just leave off your mesh hands and voila!).

Sizes included:

  • Standard mesh sizes XXS – L
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Belleza – Isis

This beautiful gown will be out until next Sunday, when a new free gift will be set out for you to enjoy!

Note: If you’re having trouble finding the gift… go inside the building, look for the Blue Moon building (inside the main building), look right for the White Armory Building. Go inside the White Armory Building. You’ll find the group gift there 🙂

Jeweled and a[MUSE]ed

a[MUSE]ed

A little fantasy.

NSP florals and [MUSE] set out a great Women’s Stuff Hunt gift that had me thinking along the lines of fantasy and roleplay. It’s only 1L and a little hunting time for the iconic red T-shirt and you get the hair and jeweled hair piece pictured above. The two pieces are separate so you can wear the jeweled headpiece with any other hair that you have. As a bonus, there is an included hud to change the color of the jewels on the headpiece. The hair only comes in the one color and reminds me a bit of old fashioned wigs, but I liked it nonetheless. I thought it was fun!

Matching the pair.

I hadn’t been by Wicca’s Wardrobe in a while and was happy to pick up their latest group gift. The group is 99L to join, but they offer monthly group gifts and the gifts are always top quality. There is always a gift out for both the ladies and the gents. This month I was able to pick up the Belle Dress in Spring Flower.

Sizes available:

  • Standard mesh sizes XXS – L
  • TMP
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

So Enchanting

Magical_002

A touch of fantasy.

The Tie the Knot Hunt (which runs until March 24th) is all about weddings… but I came across a free prize (in all the popular mesh body sizes plus a quality alpha) that would make not only a lovely wedding dress, but also would be perfect for roleplay. So I found myself adventuring to find the perfect setting and backdrop to show it off.

I ended up in a field of lavender wildflowers, that perfectly set off the lavender ties in the corset part of this dress. For 0L, I imagine you’ll want to pick up this beautiful gown from K&A Design too. Just stop by K&A Design and search for the wedding ring box and this lovely dress is yours free.

Sizes in the box:

  • Maitreya – Lara
  • eBody
  • Fitmesh
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Winter Maiden

Winter Maiden

25L Tuesday is over but…

I stopped by Sweet Lies to have a look around. It’s one of my favorite stores for fantasy roleplay wear. I happened to notice that the 25L Tuesday outfits are still out and couldn’t help myself… I had to snap one up to show it off. I picked up the Angelica fitmesh dress in White, but there are 3 other colors out if you don’t care for this one. The blue one is really pretty too.

One size fits all.

The dress only comes in one size… fitmesh. But I had no trouble fitting it to my Maitreya mesh body. I also tried it on with just my system body and the included alpha layer, and that worked like a dream as well. It’s a lovely design for a steal of a deal of only 25L. Hurry and pick it up before it’s no longer set out!

A Warming Trend

Morning Dew_001

I see a trend.

This warm weather thing must be a trend. I think a few of us have been longing for a break from the cold weather. If you are also into fantasy roleplay (or even if you are not), I’ve found a warm weather outfit that may just suit your fancy. I took a stroll among the flowers with it, but I can see it fitting into a roleplay wardrobe too.

The dress.

The latest group gift from EvelineInTheBox is easily one of my favorite gifts from the creator yet. It is very elaborate with a plunging neckline, shoulder straps, a strap across the chest, and very unique sleeves that sort of remind me of “I dream of Jeanie.” As always, the group is free to join, making the gift free to you.

Sizes it comes in:

  • Maitreya
  • Werwolf
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Wrap it up.

I paired my new dress with a unique gift from Merlific. These Maitreya specific leg wraps not only fit like a dream, they are sexy too. The group is free to join, making the gift free as well. You’ll get a gift package that contains five colors (black, white, red, blue, and purple). I’m showing off the black in my picture as it matched my outfit. Don’t miss your chance to pick these up!
