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!

Not Just Another Fantasy

Not Just Another Fantasy

Halloween is the perfect time to fill out your fantasy wardrobe… and 7 Deadly s{K}ins is making that a little easier this month with two excellent fantasy skins as their group gifts. You first saw the Ladies gift shown off [HERE] by Sheidey. But the men were not left out this month.

If you are a group member (the group fee is 150L) you can pick up the men’s gift at 7 Deadly s{K}ins in the fantasy tone shown above. It includes 3 versions… a clean face and 2 different white bearded versions, each with different brow options. Included in the package are appliers for slink hands and feet as well as the slink body appliers and omega appliers as well. Be sure to hit “accept” when you see all the pop ups, as the omega package does come separately from the slink package. You don’t want to miss getting the extra box.

I also picked up this very nice FREE necklace as part of the Men Only Hunt. I thought it had a fantasy feel and decided to include it in my post. This is the gift from etham and is a fairly elaborate and well made silver and blue design on a black cord. It would be an excellent addition to any gentleman’s wardrobe. Just teleport to etham and hunt down the iconic beer symbol and this classic pendant is yours FREE.

In the Mood for Roleplay

In the Mood for Roleplay

It’s Sunday! And as usual, The White Armory has out a beautiful FREE group gift for us to enjoy. Roleplay is a staple in my Second Life to do list, and I was really excited about this Sunday’s FREE gift and wanted to show it to you, with a reminder to head down to The White Armory and pick up this gift before it’s gone. You’ll have until next Sunday, when a new FREE gift will be set out.

This gift includes the dress you see me wearing in the picture above, as well as system leggings and socks, which I opted out of due to my mesh body. I added a few other details, such as daggers and a pair of boots, and the outfit was perfect without adding the leggings. The dress is mesh and comes in all the standard sizes, making it a great addition to your roleplay wardrobe! Head to The White Armory and pick up this great gift!

As for me… I’m off to see what kind of roleplay trouble I can stir up at the sim I call my roleplay home now that I have the perfect outfit! 😉

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
