Sweet May

Sweet May

I hope the month of May has been sweet to you. We’ve passed the half-way mark now! It’s hard to believe we’ll be moving into the hotter summer months soon. But I think I’m ready with this pretty sun dress from that is the May group gift from Glitterati.

I love the classic waist styling and floral hem of this dress, as well as the scalloped neckline which are perfect for spring’s last fling and even for moving into hotter summer months. It comes in all the standard mesh sizes.

I was delighted to discover that NSP Florals has out a May gift that seemed to perfectly match my new dress. This little rose hair piece I picked up is beautifully detailed, and while I paired it with a sundress, I can see it working perfectly with a wedding dress in June. If you’re good at editing, you could attach this to the chest or spine and make it into a corsage instead. I can just imagine so many possibilities for this lovely rose beauty! Best yet, it comes with a color change hud that allow you to change the color of the roses to a variety of sumptuous colors! As of the time of this posting the NSP Floral Group is FREE to join, making this group gift FREE. However, group membership is usually 75L. I’m not sure how much longer the group fee will be set at 0L, so you should hurry if you want to get this lovely item as a FREE gift.

Sweet May 2

Enchanting

“Every age can be enchanting, provided you live within it.” – Brigitte Bardot

Roleplay is an important part of my Second Life, and I have long loved fantasy and medieval roleplay in particular… I think that is why I love 30L Saturdays. I am particularly enchanted with a couple of special finds this Saturday. You will have to hurry to pick them up at this price today before midnight SLT, but they are well worth it!

Enchanting 1

If you stop by Les Encantades, you can pick up this beautiful medieval mesh gown in all the standard sizes. The texturing is spot on, and I love the floral print. It can easily pass for many roleplay settings and would be lovely for any lady with the right accessories. It is well worth today’s 30L price tag.

Enchanting 2

I love adding small details to make an outfit stand out, and I was really thrilled with one of several 30L offerings from Moon_Sha. This Celtic Yggdrasil Necklace is only 30L and comes in both male and female sizes; so if it’s not your style, Ladies, point a deserving fella in the right direction!

Accessorize Your Fantasy!

Roleplay and fantasy have always been a huge part of my Second Life experience, and truly great roleplay outfits are usually defined by their accessories. So! This accessories post is all about accessories for different types of roleplay or fantasies!

Accessories Day Post Picture 1

I put together this whimsical outfit with a FREE soft yellow dress by antielle. which I found on the marketplace. It might be new to some of you as it hasn’t been blogged in a while, but some time back, Tiana Omizu showed the dress HERE. It’s a lovely mesh little number in a soft yellow and all the standard sizes. But we all know that a dress is just a dress unless you add the right details. Accessorize!

To add my fantasy feel to this dress I donned this amazing Coral Witch Headress in gold (there are five colors in the Marketplace pack) from Aii ~ The Ugly and the Beautiful. The 5-pack of colors is only 10L and these headresses are modifiable as well!

My Earcuffs are by PoshTale and are a FREE Marketplace gift. These are colorchange with three color choices. I went with the gold, but you could chose red or blue. They fit perfectly over human shaped ears to add an elven and fantasy feel.

Sometimes roleplay or fantasies go a bit darker… for those days (or nights!) I found a great one stop shop for you. Tabou! Here you can pick up three group gifts sure to make for some steamy fantasy roleplay. Currently the Tabou Group is FREE to join and you can pick up this blindfold, septum nose piercing and bracelet as FREE gifts. I did edit the bracelet by moving it up to make an armlet, as it’s modifiable. So if you have a bit of editing skills, I imagine you could make it into an anklet or other versatile piece!

Accessories Day Post Picture 3_001

I’ve always thought that Greek and Romanesque roleplay looked lovely and inviting. The feel of it to me is divine! I put on a simple silk as my base, but that is never enough to give you the proper look. To get the look I wanted, I finished off this silk with two great accessories from two amazing stores.

First, stop by Luas Urban Style. My Owl Jewel Set is a FREE lucky letter board available to Luas group members. The group is FREE to join. It includes the necklace and earrings shown above, as well as a ring (not shown).

I picked up the bold Gadhra Metals necklace from Salt & Pepper. It is their most recent group gift. The gift is FREE with group membership. The group is 100L to join but the frequent, quality gifts make it well worth joining. This was a set which included matching earrings as well (not shown), and the set is also color change for several metal choices.

Sometimes we all need something a little whimsical and innocent. Remember when the tooth-fairy was real and we still believed in unicorns? I love this FREE February Group gift from [MUSE] NSP Florals. The little Unicorn Daisy is sweet as can be. The group is 75L to join, but with great monthly offers like this, it is worth the investment.

To wrap up, we all have our wild side! I began my look by picking out this outfit called Antiope by Sweet Lies from the Marketplace. It is only 59L and modifiable for an easy fit. It has a feel that is perfect for lots of roleplay settings, which I love!

To give it a finishing touch, I added another Marketplace item: a 1L gift from Old World — this Medieval Fish Bone Necklace. The Necklace has all the terrific details we know and love Old World for, and for the sweet little price of 1L, it is a terrific touch to finish off a wild look.

Winter Blues

“I’ll have a blue Christmas without you
I’ll be so blue just thinking about you
Decorations of red on a green Christmas tree
Won’t be the same, dear, if you’re not here with me” [Elvis]

Elvis is in the snow! Err… in the pavilion. Err… in the house! Okay so this dress has me singing the blues, but not in a bad way! And you’ll be singing the blues too once you see how perfect this gown is for winter blues!

Winter Blues 1

“And when those blue snowflakes start falling
That’s when those blue memories start calling
You’ll be doin’ all right with your Christmas of white
But I’ll have a blue, blue, blue, blue Christmas” [Elvis]

A white holiday is traditional, but a blue one is stunning, especially in this gorgeous gown from The Beautiful Ones .:TBO:. called Selina Long Tail in Turquoise. One of the things I loved best about this formal holiday gown is that not only did it come in all the standard mesh sizes, but it also came in several fitted mesh sizes which accommodated my fuller and curvy avatar figure! Yay! I didn’t have to slim down my sliders at all to fit into this dress which just thrilled me!

You’ll find that there are two great ways you can take this dress home for the holidays when you stop by the TBO main-store. You can either pick it up as a FREE group gift (the group is 25L to join with later group gifts to pick up) OR if you are low on group space you can pick it up for the tiny fee of just 10L instead without the group join. A very nice offer indeed!

Winter Blues 2

“You’ll be doin’ all right with your Christmas of white
But I’ll have a blue, blue, blue, blue Christmas” [Elvis]

[MUSE] NSP Florals was doing it right in blue for their December gift as well with this lovely choker and earrings gift set which you can pick up FREE with your group tag (the group is 75L to join if you are not already a member, but offers beautiful monthly gifts for your small fee). This set is fully adjustable and resizable for the perfect fit and has a lustrous, almost snowflake affect that makes it perfect for holiday parties.

Who said white was the color of the season? Give me that blue, blue holiday. Sing it, Elvis!

Something Steam(Punk)y!

Something Steam(punk)y

I’d never miss a chance to try out a new character, cosplay, or fantasy! Though I admit, I’ve never done steampunk. So when I saw this amazing hat at the NSP Florals Cart at the Wash Sale (and only 10L — Woot!), I was all a twitter! It was a chance to put together a steam punk look with a great accessory from top quality designer and once I had the top hat on, I was thrilled!

I love the combination of rich fabrics, florals, and metal feathers! Then it was off to adventuring at a steampunk sim! (If you have time, check out New Babbage — I linked you below… very cool place!)

But don’t be mistaken! The NSP Floral Cart at the Wash Sale is not just steampunk! Oh no! Versatility is the name of the game! This creative creator is offering up several gorgeous vintage hats (with the hair included!) as well as beautiful floral accessories that could easily finish off a stunning modern gown or top off a Gothic vampire’s ebony tresses.

The possibilities are endless and at only 10L per purchase, you won’t want to pass any of these beauties up!

The Evil Queen & The Good Queen

The Evil Queen

Throughout fantasy, fairy tales, and folklore the struggle between good and evil has always been at the heart of many tales. Two of the Recolors of Spring Hunt gifts at Apple May Designs hint at such stories, the Evil Queen dress, and the Good Queen dress. Inspired by the dresses at AMD and my own love of fantasy, I am excited to share with you an Evil Queen, and a Good Queen. I hope you like them as much as I do!

The Evil Queen’s dress is one of 4 female 1 linden Recolors of Spring Hunt prizes hidden around the Apple May Designs main location. I love that the dress has a fitted bodice and a short full skirt. In my opinion this silhouette is perfect for a fantasy look. The red and black fabric has a satin-like look to it, and I had no problem wearing this fully mesh dress with my Maitreya Lara body. The Evil Queen dress comes in standard sizes and includes a matching alpha layer.

Today only, Glam Affair has out a pack of three gorgeous skins for 50 lindens as their Fifty Linden Friday item. One of these skins I thought was perfect for my vision of the Evil Queen. The Sia skin in the India tone with her dark red lips is just stunning on and has the right combination of beauty and drama. Not as into this skin as I am? There’s bound to be one you will enjoy between the three tones (India, America, and Artic). Not to mention that at just 50 lindens for all 3, you kinda can’t go wrong!

Here are the Evil Queen’s Details, Enjoy!

The Good Queen

While I’m generally more inclined toward the darker fantasy characters, I have to admit I love this interpretation of the Good Queen. I envisioned something a little ethereal and I think I achieved such a look. I hope you love it!

Just like the Evil Queen, the Good Queen’s dress is a 1 linden RSH prize at Apple May Designs. This version is a beautiful white material with the same satin-like look and faint pattern of the black and red Evil Queen version. These dresses really are lovely on. For some diversity (and because I had the right skin appliers) I wore my Slink Physique body with the dress, and again had no issue. This dress also comes in standard sizes and can be worn using the provided alpha layer.

Additionally, I picked up some gorgeous past group gifts at NSP Florals. There are many gifts still available at NSP Florals, one of which is this enchanting Lady Gwynevere headdress in Sublime Mint. The headdress is a past FREE group gift that can still be found in the NSP Florals/MUSE VIP Room. The NSP Florals group is just 75 lindens to join, and you gain instant access to all the available gifts. Another beautiful FREE gift at NSP Florals are these lovely heels. Called the Peony Stilettos, these fantastic shoes are meant to be worn with Slink High feet. Also, they can be worn with or without the flower and crystal embellishment. Again, you’re able to get the shoes and the headdress at NSP Florals with just one group join fee of 75 lindens, not to mention the slew of other equally awesome gifts!

Here are the details for the Good Queen, Enjoy!
