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!

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 🙂

The Valkyrie’s Blessing

The Valkyrie's Blessing

The Medieval Fantasy Hunt XV started April 1 and is prime time for lovers of roleplay or fantasy wear in general to get some great costumes for play or fun for FREE. This is the time to stock up your wardrobe! I have only made two stops so far and immediately I wanted to show the very first two things I found! That’s how good this stuff is!

My current roleplay home, Crest of Vrek’mar (adult Sim), made the perfect backdrop with its beautiful builds for this amazing Valkyrie outfit which is the women’s FREE hunt gift on the Blessing path from Tamiron Forge. I have to give shouts out to both the creator of these items I’m showing today and to the roleplay Sim where I spend so much of my time… they give roleplayers creative outlets and homes in Second Life.

The Valkyrie by Tamiron Forge is well detailed with resizable bracers and a crown, and includes a skirt and separate top both in all the standard mesh sizes for a perfect fit.

I also stopped by Chaos, Panic, & Disorder! where I picked up the Blessing Path FREE hunt gift for Ladies. This store is offering a Cursed and Blessing path gift for both men and ladies, but I’m only showing the one. I’m going to show you the vendor advertisement here for a close up.

The Alchemists Blessing

I really appreciate that this creator left this necklace as modify. It is beautiful all on its own, but I did a little playing to get it to match the Valkyrie outfit… making it full bright, adding a .04 glow to it, and adding a slight blue tint as well. I think these slight touches to the pendant made it a perfect match to the outfit. I love when creators are generous enough to allow us these modifications.

Happy hunting!

Lend Me Your Hairs!

“Friends, Ladies, Second Lifers, lend me your hairs; I come to wear hair, not to praise it…”

Wait. That’s not how that quote goes. Either way — Sometimes we all need a new do and I have just the dos for no dough for you!

Lend Me Your Hairs! [1]

You really can never go wrong by taking a jaunt over to Analog dog to check out the latest offerings in the FREE Ball at the back of the sim. Currently Style 1 and 2 in the pictures above are offers. Style 1 (Bangers) and 2 (Lolly) are real lookers. Though one says blondes and one says light reds, I discovered that the hud included a tinting option that let me tint the hair literally any color I wanted and I managed to get both hairs to the rich chocolate shade you see in the picture. Style 3 is the current FREE group Gift at Dura called Valentine with your FREE group join and is also a fatpack of colors as well!

Lend Me Your Hairs! [2]

Mina Hair is always classic for any occasion. I love the realistic textures and the unique designs. These two gifts — styles 4 (Ilse) and 5 (Tristan, which is also unisex and comes in 4 styles in the box) above are current in-store group gifts FREE with your 200L group join fee. They both are full fat packs. Don’t let the fee deter you. Mina offers regular group gifts, special offers, and discounts to VIPS to make up for the fee.

Lend Me Your Hairs! [3]

Need something elegant? Just not in the casual mood? [Entwined] is your one stop shop! Above in the picture you can see that styles 6, 7, and 8 are fantastic for any classic elegant look (though style 6 — called Anna — is on the fence — it would be great for casual wear too). Style 7 is called Holly, and style 8 is called Elinna and these great hair gifts are yours FREE at [Entwined] when you join the group for FREE and pick them up in world at the store and they all come in full color pack huds!

Lend Me Your Hairs! [4]

We’ll finish up with do 9 and 10. You’re going to pick up number 10 — called Ivy — while at [Entwined]. It’s another elegant style there FREE with your FREE group join. Style number 9 is called Astarte and is FREE with a hop pop and stop over to +Spellbound+ with a 100L group join fee — but the fee is worth it for this style alone as it is a full gift color pack and then add in later gifts and other benefits… how can you complain?

Well that’s it for me. I’m out of hair for now. I mean, I’m out of here for now. You get the picture! 😉
