Catch Me in your Dreams

Catch Me in Your Dreams

25L Tuesdays are a dream come true for roleplayers in Second Life… though I think this special item I came across today would please just about anyone. On a Lark has a pretty camisk out that roleplayers may just want to add to their wardrobe… and those of you who wear modern clothes could wear it with a pair of jeans and call it a pretty shirt. This is the “Envelop” top by On a Lark.

You can buy this pretty camisk today in a multitude of colors (and I do mean a lot of colors) for just 25L each. It comes in all your standard mesh sizes, as well as Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Belleza, Physique, and Hourglass, and each of the fits comes in two different textures for each color — a plain and a damask. Beware if you wear it alone! It covers the front but not the hiney (*winks*). I’m showing you a picture at the bottom of this post so you can see the pretty bow in the back that is the icing on the cake so to speak.

Pixel Box offered a weekend gift of a necklace Dreamcatcher that I added to my pretty look. This is a FREE TO ALL gift that you can pick up at the store. Sunday was supposed to be the last day that the gift was out, but when I checked this morning, it was still there… so I recommend haste if you like it and don’t want to miss out!

Roar

Greetings FabFree Readers,

Roar

I am indulging in a bit of fantasy Medieval role play today for this missive. I saw this dashing set from C&N Gorian Designs and knew it was time for some ‘days of yor’.  This is the ‘Lion’ set from C&N Gorian Designs and it’s the current free Group Gift. However, with this being so close to the end of the month it may be changed out very soon. This set comes with the tunic the leggings, the boots and the separate hood, plus the belt and sword. The boots, belt and hood are all modifiable with a built in script to get a prefect fit. The mesh tunic and leggings come in the standard mesh sizes from XS to XL. As with every item from C&N, I have found this outfit to be superbly details and extremely well built.

The C&N Gorian Designs group is a small 25L to join and is well worth the lindens for all of the gifts and lucky boards. The group Gift board requires a 1L payment which is immediately refunded.

I Remain Most Sincerely Yours,

Gabe's Signiture

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!

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!

A Highlands Lady

Hey there, FabFree folks!

RennHunt_001

Even as the new year is starting up, some things are winding down. I almost missed the nifty little Holiday Hunt over on Renaissance Island. The good folks at Renaissance Island have hidden 22 gifts all over the town each one priced at 0L. My favorite has to be this gorgeous tartan gown, Bayberry from G. Sloane. It has a nice holiday feel if you need something for next year’s December role plays but it isn’t overly Christmas-y. I added a picture so you can see the gown without the stole.

RennHunt_002

I added the lovely ‘Silver Fox Stole’ from Tayren’s Fantasy Fashions to make my new gown a little more snow – friendly. This elegant stole comes with a longer scarf version for your gentleman too.

Don’t be intimidated by the idea of a ‘Sim wide’ Hunt, this hunt is fun and easy and the organizers provided a great list of hints you can grab from the Hunt poster at the landing point.  What you can’t do is wait around. This Hunt ends on January 6th so hurry over!

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!

The Draw to Enchantment

“Do you hear the call of the waves below?
Or the way the fishes move in the flow?
To Sea! To Sea! The Seagulls do caw.
From somewhere she answers…
She answers their call.
Can you see the foam layered on sand?
Or feel the way it creeps up your hand?
Her curls shine…Shine bright in the sun.
She smiles and dances…
She dances for fun.
She’s ready to share her treasure with you.
Though you’ll need to find it.
Before the others do.”
[Poem courtesy of the Enchantment Hunt]

The Draw of Enchantment [1]

I’ll be honest… I’m not one for hunts. (I’m one of those people who has a terrible time finding where I last left my glasses in real life, let alone finding a hunt item in SL!) But this Hunt drew me in the minute I saw the amazing line up of designers and the gorgeous gifts, and I knew I had to share it with you! Especially as every one of these hunt gifts are FREE. Just find the little purple shell, click it, and viola! You’ve found your prize!

The theme of the Enchantment Hunt is little mermaid. I found you a simply amazing mesh tail for only 50L at The Muses that works great with the mesh Maitreya Lara body (which is what I have) as well as system bodies (you can see the tail in the picture above.) The Muses sells their tail in two styles — Ianthe or Ondine and you can get either style in an amazing array of colors from either their Marketplace store or their in-world store. I admit to grabbing mine from the Marketplace simply for the convenience.

The shot above is also a great view of half of the gift you’ll find if you stop by .aisling. as you swim through this great hunt. Their gift composed of two parts: a pose and a prop. The picture above gives you a clear shot of the pose… the siren or mermaid reaching out to draw in her prey… the picture below gives you a good picture of the second half of .aisling’s. gift — a stunning dagger with an intricately detailed hilt for you to hold.

The Draw of Enchantment [2]

The Hunt includes 23 amazing stops — far too many for me to showcase in one post. But I tried to hit several to give you an idea of just how amazing these gifts really are. This skin by Lumae called Adore – Eione // Anemone (notice the amazing details with the scales on the skin?!) came with every applier imaginable, as well as different color brow options and was also part of the Hunt.

My tiara is an Enchantment Hunt gift courtesy of PurpleMoon Creations and when I stumbled upon it, I fell in love — not just with the detailing and style but with the thoughtfulness of the creator who added a color-change hud! There are 12 gem color options and 5 metal options!

My mesh pearls and sexy star seashell modesty breast covers are an Enchantment Hunt gift from [Glitzz] and just as generous as the other gifts as they included an easy to use resize script that made them easy to fit to my avatar’s shape. I loved that I did not have to modify my avatar to fit these items, but instead I could modify these items to fit my avatar.

Last but not least — it’s not a hunt item, but I found a fabulous gift from you from Alice Project! They have put out a promo on the marketplace as a FREE gift for customers called Summertime Sadness in a special set of Mini Medley colors. I chose this lovely pastel pink to complete my look, but there were lots of great colors on the hud. And as always, this mesh style from Alice project is just breathtaking!

I love medieval and Fantasy styles, if y’all didn’t already know that. So when I saw C&N Designs gorgeous ‘Eluthiel’ Dress, I knew I needed it! I love the quilted details and the golden ribbon wraps. The wide neckline just begs for a show stopper necklace and D.D.M Designs ‘Giallo Fiora Primavera’ necklace is just the thing.
