Spring Steampunk

Spring Steampunk (full)

If the sky that we look upon well should tumble and fall

Taking pictures in one’s backyard has its perks but recently it’s been more of a hazard lately than anything else. After being nudged out of the treehouse for the umpteenth time by Commander (a polar bear that loves being up in trees; who would have thought) I decided to take my chances out on the grid. Thanks to a grumpy laptop, it’s been a while since I’ve managed to snap some shots on the many beautiful sims that Second Life has to offer but it seemed to be in a good mood today and lucky thing because the items I have to show you today deserve a marvelous backdrop.

Let’s start off with the newly updated Fabulously Free in SL group gift from MOoH! (thank you, Dalriada Delwood!). No matter how full my virtual closet gets (it’s pretty stuffed let me tell you), I always make room for clothing from MOoH! With their signature eye-catching designs and gorgeous texturing, it’s always a challenge to stop squeeing loudly whenever I see a new offer from this store. You can bet it’s what I did when I first laid eyes on the Janis dress but I really don’t think I can be blamed. After months of thick sweaters, this sleeveless, belted number was exactly what I needed in my life. Not only is the cut of this dress perfect for future Spring frolics, it’s deep lavender color is reminiscent of a field of flowers sharing the same name. Add that to the flowery lace overlay and well, Love hit the nail right on the head that this is a dress that can make you all excited for Spring!

The Janis dress comes in the following sizes:

  • Five Standard Mesh (XS-XL)
  • Five Fitmesh  (XS-XL)
  • Belleza Isis
  • Slink Physique and Hourglass
  • Maitreya

Included in the gift package is an alpha layer as well and with so many sizes to choose from I think there’s a good chance that you’ll find a fit for your avatar. As with all Fabulously Free in SL group gifts, the Janis dress is free of charge. You’ll only need to have your group tag activated and you won’t even have to pay a single L to join the group. While you’re at the store, do consider joining the MOoH! group as there are monthly group gifts and a monthly gift card for group members. The join fee for the MOoH! store group stands at a 100L but with all the goodies that you get, it’s a bargain.

Steampunk Spring

And the mountains should crumble to the sea

With February being the mushy month that it is, I decided to take a small break from all of that and visit The Broken Heart Fair. There’s a wide variety of goodies to be had at the fair, from decor to accessories to clothing and of course shoes. Most of the stalls had 30L or 35L items out as well as items going for 50% off and I had the good luck of grabbing this pair of Steampunk boots from Luas for only 35L. There’s no resisting a good pair of boots and I simply adore the chained gears detailing and those spikes that will no doubt add a subtle edge to any outfit. These Steampunk boots come with an alpha layer to help with the fit if you’re still on a classic avatar.

I won’t cry, I won’t cry, no I won’t she’d a tear

While you’re at The Broken Heart Fair, don’t forget to pick up the gifts that are available at the stores (just look for the heart-shaped box). You don’t need to have a group tag to get them and opening up boxes of free gifts after an outing is a fine way to pass the time yes? The bag in the picture is one such gift that you can get at the fair just by stopping by the Poet’s Heart stall. While it’s a long way to Halloween, I couldn’t resist bringing this cute, well-detailed bat bag with me on my adventures. There are two different variations of this bag in the prize package, one with a hold animation and one without.

The Broken Heart Fair is running until the 15th so hurry down and grab your gifts or do a little bit of shopping before it ends.

Just as long as you stand, stand by me

And that’s a wrap. Have fun on Valentine’s Day guys! If you’re wondering about the song, well, train tracks.

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.

Hair – Magika – Now
Dress – antielle. Marin Magique Sunny! Gift (0L/FREE on the Marketplace/ First shown HERE by Tiana Omizu)
Earcuffs – PoshTale – Eru EarCuffs (0L/FREE on the Marketplace)
Horns – Aii ~ The Ugly and the Beautiful – Coral Witch Headress 5 pack – gold shown (10L on the Marketplace)

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!

Head – LeLutka – Stella w/ Glam Affair Base Applier hud
Hair – Exile – Temptation Waits
Bra – {Luxuria} Naughty Rose in Black
Blind Fold – Tabou – Blind Love – Bloody (0L/FREE Group Gift/Free to Join Group)
Septum Piercing – Tabou – Bublles septum – copper (0L/FREE Group Gift/Free to Join Group)
Armlet – Tabou – My Holiday Hand (0L/FREE Group Gift/Free to Join Group)

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.

Head – LeLutka – Stella w/ Glam Affair Base Applier hud
Hair – Truth – Leticia
Outfit – Soedara – Venustas Togulae 2 in White
Short Neclace – Salt & Pepper Group Gift – Gadhra Metals (0L/FREE gift to Group Members/100L to Join the Group)
Long Necklace & Earrings – Luas Urban Style – Owl Jewel Set (0L/FREE Group Lucky Letter Board/FREE to Join the Group)

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.

Head – LeLutka – Stella w/ Glam Affair Base Applier hud
Hair – Exile – One Way or Another
Outfit – Sweet Lies – Antiope Brown Outfit (59L on the Marketplace)
Necklace – Old World – Medieval Necklace Fish Bone (1L on the Marketplace)

A hunting we shall go!

blog1I do love a good hunt and in this case 3! Lets dive right in so you can have fun hunting too.
Our 1st hunt is at the Jewels Isle Sim Hunt (also being refereed to as the Zuri Hunt), this is a sim wide hunt including several well known shops and runs now thru Oct.  This hunt has allowed each store to set the price of their item so they run from FREE to 25L. If you touch one of the hunt signs when you land it will give you a note card that will show you a pic and give you a landmark to each shop so that is worth giving a look to to see if any of the other prizes might tickle your fancy to grab along with the ones I am showing.

My Spring Fling-copper lingerie set with gorgeous detailing is from Blacklace and it includes not only system layers but also Slink, GOS and Omega appliers. Very generous for this FREE hunt item. This was very easy to find, a clue is given but I had found it before I even read the clue.

I am also showing you the hunt prize from Poet’s Heart, it is 1L but money well spent for what you get. This lovely Aradia headpiece comes with a color hud that changes both the pearls and spikes separately giving you a whole bunch of color combinations. This headdress could look just lovely with something formal to fantasy as well.

Now lets get in close on my nails which are also hunt prizes both from ZOZ but from 2 different Hunts. ZOZ has 2 shops so we are going to need to move around a bit to snag these hunt prizes but its well worth the tping. Both of these prizes are for Slink nails and will change both fingers and toes in one click with the bonus of not just 1 shade but several. The 1st prize is from ZOZ Jewels Isle Sim Hunt. The Fall pumpkin (Slink) Polish nail hud is just in time for Oct & Halloween. It is a french manicure with gold tips and tiny pumpkins. The cost is 5L. Our next ZOZ polish, Silver Leaf is from the Autumn Effect Hunt which runs til Oct 15th and you are looking for a round puck that says Depraved Nation Presents on it. You are getting a whole set of 9 different colors plus the ring I am wearing for FREE. It took me only a few seconds to edit this ring to my Slink finger. Both of these hunts give clues and I both prizes were pretty easy to find.

My pretty floral dress is also from the Jewels Isle Sim Hunt and it is FREE. It is the prize from Ever An’ Angel, Salem – Eventide. This is a mesh dress with a prim add on skirt piece. I did find I had to go up a size in this dress for a better fit. Alright now onto the 3 hunt prizes which I could hardly wait to tell you about, mainly because I was shocked to have found both of them. Both my necklace and headpiece are from The Twisted Hunt which runs til Oct 19. This hunt will tell you its not easy and its not, it is a huge grid wide hunt with lots of stores involved and it gives no clues and on top of it there are fakes set out to make it more of a challenge. You are looking for a black & white spinning box. This is why I count myself so lucky to have found not only the Zuri Dawn Necklace prize but also the extra prize The xtra F-headpiece prize. As if I wasn’t lucky enough in finding both of these they are both FREE! They look fab together but look just as fab worn as separates.

Ok off you go, happy hunting to all! I’ll be back next week with more goodies to share.

Heigh Ho, Heigh Ho!

Snapshot_002Don’t mind me… I’ve just got a little work to finish up here before I tell you all about my outfit today!  I don’t know where I am going with this – I am far too lazy for manual labour but I thought it was too cool to not share. I’ll explain about the whole rock thing in a bit!

So many things to write about today, I am not sure where to start!  I guess a good place to start is The Courtessan outfit that includes the bow adorned mesh top and skirt.  This outfit is a free group gift at Poet’s Heart, which is free to join.  This was my first visit to Poet’s Heart and I will surely be returning as I had my eye on a few things!

Snapshot_007The Courtessan Outfit is beautifully detailed with bow and rose additions to the back.

Snapshot_003The necklace I am wearing is a free gift, priced at 0L in the gift room at LaNoir Soleil Designs.  This comes with a matching male lock necklace too!  This necklace has been previously shown before a couple of times here on FabFree when it was available as a free gift at FFHQ.  LNS has since changed out the gift, but it is now available at their shop if you missed it!

I know you must be wondering about this awesome hair and crown and I am super excited to share a little sneak peek with you.  The Ignes Wildmane and Winged Crown is made by LaNoir Soleil Designs and are just a little taste of the hunt gifts you can obtain after completing Mad Pea The Lost Mine Hunt that begins on April 1st.
Snapshot_005This Ignes Wildmane & Winged Crown Set come with a HUD that allows for four hair colours, and jewel choices for the crown too.  There is also a prize by LNS for the guys shown below.  Again… The Lost Mine Hunt hasn’t started yet, but you can keep an eye on their official blog for more sneak peek photos and information on the upcoming hunt.
PicMonkey CollageOooh…  I almost forgot!  I was going to explain about the first photo…  The Lost Mine Hunt Gifts by LaNoir Soleil designs come delivered in this fun mining themed pose.   When you add the item to your avatar to open it, the rock, pick and pose attach. I always appreciate the gift, but when it’s wrapped up in a cool way, it just adds to the pleasure!  I could tell the LNS team had a lot of fun with this hunt prize and I wanted to show it off 🙂

Hmm… One more thing…  If you happen to still be reading my post!  The skin I am in today is WoW skins Leandra which is available in three skin tones at The Designer’s Circle for just 99L per pack!
