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!

Dreaming of Russia

Snapshot_006 Good evening Fabulous readers! I wanted to start off tonight by sending out a big thank you to Izzy Christenson for sending me the smoke and pink hoodie Alchemy Doges!  She had been seeing my lonely Cream bulldog in my posts and thought he might like some company.  I think she was right – he does look much happier now lol {hugs Izzy}!

A new round of Shiny Shabby opened up on the 20th with a super fun Russian theme.  I have been, and been back a gazillion times for purchases from different designers across the grid.  I imagine I’ll revisit again too lol because I have no control.  Anyways…  at the landing point you will find a new free group gift by LpD for Shiny Shabby inworld members (free to join).  This gift is the super sweet mesh Petunia Top by LpD that I am wearing.

Many of the decorative items you see in my little display such as the Khokhloma Cabinet, Khokhloma Chair, Yellow Trolly Table, Sweet Apples, Matrioshkas, Colorful Hanging Lamps and the Minature Russian Cathedral (RARE) are from the Ionic From Russia With Love Gacha Set at Shiny Shabby which is just 60L per play.

Tossing in a little more freeness to this collection, you can find the Casita Dreamer Sign with the dangling gold stars and [free bird] Cast Iron Fountain Wall Décor as free Wayward Hunt prizes at their respective inworld shop locations.

The Mermaid

The Mermaid

Hi there Fab Free! I had so much fun styling this look that I’m just going to get right to it and tell you all about it. This “Ocean” toned skin from PixyStix is truly gorgeous on, I love looking at it. It also kind of reminds me of blue raspberry kool-aid, which is awesome! This fantasy skin is the FREE Hunt for Your Inner Slut prize at PixyStix. As always, Pixy was very generous with this gift, included with this skin are appliers for just about everything out there. Seriously, tons of appliers.

I’ve always liked the idea of mixing genres and styles to create a more unique look. I love mixing vintage and modern styles for example. This time I went with the fantasy look of the skin from PixyStix and added some modern clothing from Apple May Designs, and the jewelry is somewhere in between. AMD is participating in the Recolors of Spring Hunt. The hunt is a dollarbie hunt and there are several items in the AMD store. This silver metallic bandeau style top and matching skirt set is just one of the four total gifts for women. There are also two hunt prizes for the men. For just one linden this outfit is a steal! You can also find this dress in gold, and I am happy to tell you that this RSH prize includes several appliers, or it can be worn on regular system layers. Happy Hunting!

Lastly, what modern mermaid would be complete without a kick-butt mani/pedi? Today is the last day of the current round of The Dressing Room Fusion. ZOZ has a set pretty shiny nails meant for Slink hands/feet in 3 colors for just 70 lindens per color. These are specifically meant to show off the cool feature of the most recent slink update, you can put a different nail pattern on each individual nail. Can’t make it out to TDRF in time? Not to worry, the sets will be available at the ZOZ main store at full price after TDRF ends.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Wayward & Lazy

Snapshot_004 Hello Fabulouses! I have put together a cozy outdoor display to show you some free and inexpensive Second Life decorative items and furnishings that are currently available via the Wayward Hunt and the Tag Gacha Event.

I started off with the Trompe Loeil Shotgun Shack that was at the previous round of The Arcade playing at 25L per play.  If you didn’t happen to snag one of these when the event was on, you can play it at the Trompe Loeil Mainstore now.   I then added several pieces of the ISON Tag Gacha Fortune Set such as the curtains in the background, the wooden chests, wooden chair, rugs, pillows and lantern.  This machine is 50L per play.

You can find the Tree Swing by Pixel Mode, which I have placed on my porch (I’m such a rebel) as a free Wayward Hunt prize.  This swing offers a menu full of single animated poses and an adjust option which is really nice if your avatar is not the standard size.  The Salvaged Wood Welcome Sign behind me on the shack wall can be found at Frogstar after you locate that hidden Wayward Hunt icon.

Cheeky Pea is where you need to visit if you’d like to pick up the Rodeo Chime which is available in three colour options as a free Wayward Hunt Prize and the Geode Mobile displayed beside the Rodeo Chimes is at Fancy Décor (also a free WH prize!).

The Toro Racer Bicycle which comes complete with a posing animation is a free group gift for joining the Wayard Events group, and they not only want you to have this gift, but they want you to take pictures of it and submit them for display on their website too.  You can find this in the past notices of the group.

Last but not least, I wanted to mention that the striped Sprite T-Shirt that I am wearing is a Wayward Hunt prize at Moran which comes in a pack of three colours (blue, black and red).
