The Ringmaster & His Apprentice


The Ringmaster and his Apprentice

Hello Fab Free, step right up! The Ringmaster and his lovely apprentice welcome you to the circus, or more accurately, the blog! You guessed it, I’ve teamed up with that man of mine again to bring you some fabulous finds. This time we did a bit of the Jester’s Revenge Hunt and picked up the male and female hunt prizes at Mishmash. The Jester’s Revenge Hunt is a free hunt, and it lasts until April 30th.

Though definitely not your typical everyday wear, I thought these free matching outfits by Mishmash were a lot of fun. They would be great for roleplay, or themed parties. Each of the outfits is a separate prize. You’ll be hunting a little gold nugget. Both outfits come in several sizes. The men’s suit also includes an alpha layer.

Men’s Sizes Included: Adam, Aesthetic, Belleza Jake, Signature Gianni, Slink Male, TMP, Standard Mesh (xs-XL)

Women’s Sizes Included: Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Maitreya Lara, TMP, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus)

M Hint – Zilla has a joke for you

F Hint – Perhaps I can give you a hand

P.S. Make sure you check out Blue’s credits for some freebie finds for the guys!

Here are the details!

Speaking of Fae…

Fairy_001

Not long ago, I visited the Redeux event and showed off one of the free gifts I picked up in a post [here]. I’ve been unpacking boxes ever since. There are so many gifts that it seems I’ll be unpacking boxes for months! Luckily I managed to narrow down my findings to a few special ones to share with you. It’s not secret that I love roleplay and fantasy looks, so I was excited to put together a roleplay look for you. I helped it along with a group gift from a special store that you’ll want to pick up.

So versatile…

I stopped by Silvan Moon Designs to pick up the April Gift and discovered that the gift this month is really versatile. This little dress is a casual style that you could wear as a Boho dress if you were out-of-character, or you could doll it up with accessories to make a fae as I have done, or it has just enough of a traveler feel to create a gypsy. There are so many possibilities! The Silvan Moon Designs group has a one-time join fee of 500L, but you will get a quality gift each month to more than make up for the fee. This dress comes in sizes to fit Maitreya, Slink Original, and Slink Hourglass bodies.

Speaking of Fae…

So you know I revisited Redeux. I picked up my wings from Poet’s Heart. They are a beautiful pearlized shade of purple, draped in pearls. They include a color change hud for the pearls too! This is a free gift with your Redeux tag, and the Redeux gift is free to join.

What else?

What else did I get? I also nabbed some stone textures. A package of 18 really terrific ones to be exact. To get these, stop by the Timeless textures booth at Redeux and pick up the free gift there. You can see an example of one of the great looking textures behind me in these pictures.

Oh and one more thing…

I LOVE this necklace by Steelhead Outfitters. It fits perfectly and is another free gift from Redeux. This is another one of those gifts that is perfect for roleplay or everyday wear either one. It also includes a color change hud that allows you to change the color of the cord and the circular pendant both separately for lots of versatility! And don’t forget that it’s free!

Nothing will stop me now!

Flapper_001

“In New York there is always something to look at, but it is all infinitely more interesting through a window in the backseat of a limousine.”
― Anna Godbersen, Bright Young Things

I had my trunks packed, and I was ready to see the world. New York was just the start. You know how it is… these years… everyone says the 1920’s are just the beginning. Let a woman drink and smoke and the world comes to an end. Now we are independent, you see, and I’m going wear what I want, and do what I want, and…

Nothing will stop me now!

That’s because Silvan Moon Designs has me covered with a great group gift. When I picked up my POE gift from Silvan Moon Designs that I showed you {here} I noticed that they had out a gorgeous flapper dress as their group gift. The group is 500L to join, but the fantastic gifts make it well worth the fee.

The beads around the bottom are separate and the dress can be worn with or without them, and you also get the modifiable headband. Just a bit of editing, and the headband fit over my hair like a charm. Hurry before this dress is replaced with the next group gift!

Dress sizes available:

  • Fitmesh XS – M
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink
  • Freya – Skinny & Curvy

Now where should I head to next… Paris anyone?

Put some jingle bells on…

Let it Snow_001

The White Armory has long been known for turning out beautiful gowns, dresses, and outfits. Recently they rebranded their ladies clothing line to Silvan Moon Designs. On the trail of the POE Hunt, you won’t want to miss their free gift contribution.

Put some jingle bells on.

I swear I heard jingle bells out on the snow as I stood out shivering and watching the sky. Is it too early for Santa to be checking up on us you think? I don’t think so! And I think Santa thought of me early with this free POE Hunt gift from Silvan Moon Designs. The Belladonna dress comes in a Maitreya fit and a Slink fit, and has beautiful details including the ascot scarf at the neck. It is all one piece for easy fitting.

Don’t miss out on this beautiful gift!

Waiting for Sailors

Waiting for News_001

The ships will all be coming in this week and I’m waiting for a special sailor to make it back from their tour. Thanks to things like mobile towers and face-time I don’t have to miss my sailor friends completely, but seeing them in person is a different thing entirely! But once upon a time, reunions with loved ones who were out at sea for months at at time with little communication were a different thing indeed! These special vintage gifts from The Vintage Hunt, and a trip to the 1920’s New York sim reminded me of that!

Standard Vintage Fair

Be sure to stop by Loordes of London right now and get in on some of the amazing hunts that this shop is participating in. You won’t regret it. I picked up this 1L dress called the Victorian Standard as part of The Vintage Hunt. Just hunt down the little yellow umbrella and this gorgeous mesh dress is yours. It comes in classic mesh sizes XXS – L and includes an alpha if you need it. It’s all one piece, but is highly detailed with excellent texturing. I paired it with black boots for a classic feel.

Is the news in yet?

I picked up another great Vintage Hunt gift from Ashmoot. For just 1L you get two gifts at Ashmoot… these vintage sunglasses (they are resizable) and the vintage radio you see in my hand (I’m anxiously awaiting news of the returning sailors!). The radio gift includes two radios. You’ll get a no-prose prop radio that you can hold using a pose of  your own OR even rezz out in your home because its only 1 prim! PLUS you’ll get a radio that has a pose that will work with your animation override. I used the no-pose radio and added it to my own pose in the picture above.

Happy Hunting! And here is to all those with friends, family, and loved ones who are sailors!
