A Gypsy’s Tale

A Gypsy's Tale

Hello FabFree! I’m back again today with a few more goodies! I wanted to show you a lucky letter prize I picked up at PoshTale. I really love PoshTale clothing. It’s wonderfully versatile… working well as either modern attire or as roleplay outfits. My top is a perfect example. This Kasai Fringe Top is a FREE lucky letter board prize at PoshTale right now and would work well for either genre. No group is required, just some luck!

This is an applier top and includes appliers for Maitreya, Belleza, Slink, TMP, and Omega. You also get two color huds for each. The plain and patterned hud each offer 8 color choices, for a total of 16 different tops with this one applier. If this top doesn’t suit you, there are 3 other lucky letter boards currently at PoshTale for you to try your luck at.

My hair is a FREE SLB13 gift from Hairology. We’ve been showing you lots of pretty hair gifts from Hairology… this one is called “Unity” by Damselfly, and like all the other SLB13 gifts won’t cost you a single Linden. It comes in two sizes (one is to fit larger busts) and is a full fatpack of colors.

A part of me has always been a bit of a Gypsy at heart… and perhaps that is why I love this gift from Cellar Door so much. I picked it up as part of the SLB13 celebrations at We ❤ RP and it is yours FREE once you go to the Cellar Door booth there and click the cake and get your slice for your FREE gift. The box includes the necklace I am showing you, which is the rose gold color, as well as the necklace in black, bronze, gold, and silver.

I also picked up the Kunglers SLB13 gift while I was at We ❤ RP. It is a really elaborate and beautiful pair of earrings called Eliza Leaf. They are shaped like leaves and are embedded with small opals and have rose quartz wired to the tops of the metal leaves. They are really beautiful. This is a FREE gift that you won’t want to miss.

If you are a photographer in Second life and you liked my poses for this post, consider stopping by the Cart Wash Sale where you can pick up several very nice poses. My poses are by Picture Perfect. The Cart has single poses, couple poses, and even a group pose… all for only 10L each!

Just for Today

Just for Today

I love Saturday! And I love Saturday more when the 30L list comes out and I find something perfect to wear!

This week I fell in love with PoshTale‘s 30L offering. If you stop by the main-store location, you can pick up the Alysanne dress for just 30L. It includes the dress, the arm warmers and the scarf… plus a color change hud. The hud offers you 6 different colors and changes each different item separately so you can get a bit of mix and match (like I did in the picture above). Each part also attaches as a separate piece, again allowing you more dressing options!

This dress is mesh in all the standard sizes and for this much versatility and color, 30L is a steal! It’s just for today! So don’t miss out!

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)

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)

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.

Head – LeLutka – Stella w/ Glam Affair Base Applier hud
Hair – Magika – Almonds
Horn – [MUSE] – Unicorn Daisy (0L/FREE Gift to Group Members/75L to Join the Group)

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)

Firestorm Brings Us Spooky Nights!

whc td church2_001

Happy Wednesday everyone, and Happy Veteran’s Day to my American friends! Hunting has picked up on the grid lately and right now there are plenty of great items to be had for FREE or at a minimal price. This week I concentrated on the Spooky Nights Hunt presented by Firestorm. With close to 150 FREE hunt gifts spread out over five Firestorm sims, there is definitely enough hunting to keep a person busy (especially when the person in question loves to find freebies!)

The FREE Spooky Nights Hunt prize from Tiffany Designs is a highly smart-looking Mesh garment. The TD Bruno Mesh Blazer is a one piece mesh jacket with the shirt and tie integrated into it. While provided with it is a white pair of slacks, I feel that it really shines with a pair of black dress pants that I pulled from my inventory. The textures are done well and look natural, as if they are separate items of clothing. For the Spooky Nights Hunt, the hunt object you are looking for is a skull. This particular hunt prize has the unusual name “FS-SNH-Bones -Ripple stud Watchers Design I.” It is actually store number eighteen on the “Bones” leg of the hunt, so that you can find the appropriate hint on the Firestorm Spooky Nights Hunt hint page.

For a more laid back look PoshTale has contributed the Jireh Hooded Shirt to the “Wicked” leg of the Spooky Nights Hunt. It has a rough, masculine texture and comes with a 10-color hud! Nicely designed hoodies show up often in store hunts these days, but finding one that includes such a variety of textures is uncommon. It comes in five sizes, plus an additional five in fitmesh. It’s an excellent FREE hunt prize and I heartily recommend that you take a look at it. As I mentioned above, the hunt object is a skull and PoshTale is store number 14 on the “Wicked” leg of the hunt.

The Firestorm Spooky Nights Hunt is huge and fun to do. Don’t miss this opportunity. Stay tuned because later this month I will show off some of the super sexy stuff from the Animations Rising gift. It is an amazingly generous package and you won’t believe what’s in it! Until then, take care everyone! See you on the grid!—–WHC Riler
