Bird of Paradise

Bird of Paradise

In real life, I don’t often have an occasion for dressing up in a formal gown. In second life, there are plenty of opportunities for donning a formal… ballrooms, date nights, roleplay, or just visiting a pretty and photogenic castle on the beach!

Be sure to remember…

… that The White Amory generously gives a free group gift every single Sunday. The group is free to join.

I picked up this Bird of Paradise gown yesterday and knew I had to show it off. While it could easily be fit for a princess or noble lady in a roleplay setting, you could also wear it to your favorite ballroom dance occasion as well. This dress comes in a variety of mesh sizes (more on that in a moment) and as a bonus, you’ll also get fully mesh white opera gloves to fit mesh bodies (just leave off your mesh hands and voila!).

Sizes included:

  • Standard mesh sizes XXS – L
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Belleza – Isis

This beautiful gown will be out until next Sunday, when a new free gift will be set out for you to enjoy!

Note: If you’re having trouble finding the gift… go inside the building, look for the Blue Moon building (inside the main building), look right for the White Armory Building. Go inside the White Armory Building. You’ll find the group gift there 🙂

Tres Joli in Rose

Feeling Tres Joli

What a week, eh? Words cannot express how glad I am that today is Friday. This morning I was determined to shake it off Taylor Swift style, so I got myself dressed up to take my dog out for a walk and grab some hot coffee. Unfortunately, my silly pup would rather take a nap than go out and chase squirrels. Looks like she’s had a rough week, too! 😉

I Feel Joli

My college French is a bit rusty, but at least I know that I’m feeling “very pretty” in this Très Joli dress from The White Armory. As many of you know, The White Armory is one of the go-to stores for Medieval, fantasy, and role-play clothing. And you may also know that if you join their free in-world group, you can pick up a new gift every, single Sunday. But what you may not know is that every now and then, the free gift is not a Medieval gown, but instead is something more… 21st century.

Such is the case with this week’s group gift. The Très Joli Dress in Rose is a curve-hugging, cowl-neck that is as warm and snuggly as it is sexy. It comes in standard mesh sizes XXS-L with an alpha layer. As I mentioned, The White Armory changes group gifts every Sunday, so if you want this dress, be sure to pick it up by Saturday night!

A French Manicure

After adding these gorgeous boots by #EMPIRE (which were in the January Luxe Box), I noticed that I was in serious need of a pedicure, so I headed over to Entice to pick up their newest Fab Free group gift. The Listen to Her Heart applier includes a pretty French manicure with 6 delicate designs. The HUD works for Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza mesh hands and feet, and I was so happy to see that an Omega applier was also included so I could wear the manicure with my Vista PROHANDS.

As with all Omega items, you will need an Omega System Kit in order to wear them. You can pick up the kit for Vista PROHANDS on the Marketplace or in the Vista Animations store.

In the Mood for Roleplay

In the Mood for Roleplay

It’s Sunday! And as usual, The White Armory has out a beautiful FREE group gift for us to enjoy. Roleplay is a staple in my Second Life to do list, and I was really excited about this Sunday’s FREE gift and wanted to show it to you, with a reminder to head down to The White Armory and pick up this gift before it’s gone. You’ll have until next Sunday, when a new FREE gift will be set out.

This gift includes the dress you see me wearing in the picture above, as well as system leggings and socks, which I opted out of due to my mesh body. I added a few other details, such as daggers and a pair of boots, and the outfit was perfect without adding the leggings. The dress is mesh and comes in all the standard sizes, making it a great addition to your roleplay wardrobe! Head to The White Armory and pick up this great gift!

As for me… I’m off to see what kind of roleplay trouble I can stir up at the sim I call my roleplay home now that I have the perfect outfit! 😉

Off the Beaten Path

Off the Beaten Path

Hear ye, Hear ye! Calling all roleplayers! And anyone who loves great cosplay! Or just fabulous medieval clothing! You don’t have much time to get in on this deal… so make haste! And run… errrr teleport… to The White Armory, right away!

The White Armory is discontinuing over 200 gowns and outfits Sunday, July 3rd… but they are turning that into a positive for roleplayers (and anyone else who loves their clothes). All of these beautiful items are on clearance for only 25L per item until that date. These are older items, mostly flexi and standard avatar gowns, however I did find some mesh items in the discount section, as I am sporting above. Either way, all the outfits and gowns are beautiful, and the sale is worth taking a look for the avid roleplayer who would like to save some Linden.

To find the sale, take the “portal to the discount level of the store and look for the bright pink wall” (directions per the notice in The White Armory).

Happy clearance shopping!

A Tres Joli Diva

Happy Sunday, Fabfree! I have two really great group gifts to tell you about this morning!

The White Armory has long put out a weekly group gift, changing it out each Sunday, but it’s been a while since I have shown a gift from there. This week’s gift inspired me don a pretty dress and remind you that this is a FREE group with weekly benefits well worth enjoying! This dress, called Tres Joli, is mesh in all the standard sizes, and was set out today for group members. Just pick it up FREE with your FREE group tag. It will be available until next Sunday, when a new group gift will take its place.

I paired my new dress with the newest FREE group gift from no.match… this gorgeous new hairstyle called No Diva! I love the long curled over the shoulder pony tail. And its a full fatpack of colors! You’ll need to join the group for this one. It’s a one time fee of 50L, but you’ll be getting this beautiful group gift, plus access to a large number of past group gifts that are still available!

Dark Swan Warrior

There’s a warrior inside of all of us. And with a little help from a few stores and some free items, your inner warrior is about to make a journey to the surface!

Dark Swan Warrior

If it’s been a while since you’ve been to Luas, now is the time to drop by! They have a new FREE group gift out in the form of this amazing color change latex top (six color choices). I’ve made it into a medieval warrior look, but it could pass for a modern latex maiden just as easily. You’ll need to wear your group tag, but never fear warrior woman! The group is FREE to join!

Before you leave, make your way through the halls of Luas‘ main-store like the hardened battle warrior you are and check out the gachas! For just 50L per spin, you can get these amazing belt and pauldron sets called the Dark Swan. You get the matching set in each spin, so there isn’t any fuss over multiple spins to match miss-matched sets. No warrior wants a mismatched set! I picked up the Dark Swan set in blue (and if you really want to go for all, there is an additional Dark Swan armor set next to the skirt and paulron gacha with even more pieces!).

Finally, every warrior needs weapons and defenses! Did all you roleplayers know that you can get a huge assortment of FREE weapons (of all kinds) and shields at JOMO? I found everything from shields to swords to spears to clubs to spiked sticks and more! For this picture I’m showing you one of the high quality detailed shields as well as a hooked axe. There are both men’s and women’s weapons FREE to all. Simply walk back into the alley way after landing… there is an entire small building dedicated to FREE non-scripted weapons for roleplayers and you can buy one or all for 0L!

Got Your Gowns Right Here!

One of my Second Life passions is Roleplay. And one of my favorite characters is my glass sidhe fey (who’s name is Astrid of course!). She’s a bit of a vain thing… like most fey of course, and loves to look beautiful. So when I discovered that The White Armory was hosting an Advent Calendar I had to check it out, and I was not disappointed!

Like many of the other calendars, you can pick up a gift for each of the 24 days which count down the holiday. For this calendar, no group is required, the doors don’t ‘close’, and you can pick up each of the past gifts. Just pay 0L to receive the gown for each day FREE!

Got Your Gowns Right Here 1

This FREE gown called Ice Flower by The White Armory is exactly the kind of gown my fey character would wear! It was behind door number 11 on the advent calendar in case you were wondering.

It is fully mesh in all the standard sizes to fit either system or mesh bodies with added flexi pieces (the flowers and a few nice touches around the bottom of the skirt to add ‘flow’ to the gown). The gloves are system so I was unable to wear them with my slink hands, but the gown was still drop dead gorgeous even without the gloves, so I wasn’t worried a bit!

Got Your Gowns Right Here 3

This FREE summery little dress by The White Armory was behind advent door number 8 is called Summer Breeze (of course!), and is perfect for picnics in the park, Sunday walks, ladies in waiting, and much much more! It is a fully mesh dress in all the standard sizes with a few small flexi pieces which attach to the skirt at bottom to add flair and flow, so this dress will work perfectly for both system and mesh bodies.

Got Your Gowns Right Here 2

This FREE gown is the gift for Day 2 on the advent calendar and is from The White Armory‘s Birthstone Collection, called Sublime Spirit Birthstone Gown December. It is perfect if you are still rocking your system body, and though it does not feature any mesh parts, the flexi layers are so well crafted that it falls and flows perfectly to make for a gorgeous ball gown or roleplay gown fit for a princess or elven queen, (or a vain fey like Astrid!).

Got Your Gowns Right Here 4

This FREE White Armory gown was behind door number 6 and is aptly called “She’s So Dangerous” and actually has several options (not all are shown). While it works as a gown with a flexi skirt, it also has a pants option as well. The pants option is mesh as is the top in all the standard sizes, so if you are looking for an outfit that will work for a system body OR your mesh body this one will fit either one!

What I love about this outfit is the versatility. It is literally 3 outfits in one package… with two different dress options and one pant-suit option, and can pass for medieval… or is just ‘modern’ enough to fly for sci-fi!
