She’s Gone Batty

Batty1

Hello Fab Free’rs! Hopefully everyone had a good weekend and is now fully recovered from Monday! lol
I’m super excited about this little hunt I stumbled across the other day, it’s the Gone Batty Hunt. The fact that I’m fairly certain I went “batty” a long time ago aside, I also happen to adore bats! I have no idea why, I don’t have a cute story to explain it, or any other reason that I am aware of. I just love them! So if you’re like me and either really like bats, or have an affinity for the kawaii and creepy, this dollarbie hunt is just the thing for you. Also, I got in on the tail end of this hunt, it ends May 22, so don’t wait!

The Gone Batty Hunt is a sim-based hunt taking place at the “Spooky Cute” event location. The stores participating in the hunt will have a sign about the hunt either right outside their store, or visible just inside. Not all the stores are participating. Each hunt prize is 1 linden. You’ll be looking for a glowing purple disc with a black bat in the center. Happy Hunting!!

So first, I think this kinda retro looking dress with the cute tie at the neck is so adorable! It is the GBH prize by KRAVE. The dress is fully mesh and comes in standard mesh sizing. The adorable mouth-chain Pru is wearing is also a dollarbie GBH prize, this one by ClarityMoon. I love the cute little bat paired with a dark moon and stars. Next, is this fun mani/pedi from Tori-tastic. I really like this color combo with a bat motif, it’s hard to do bats and not look like Halloween. This “bat-tastic” polish is meant for Slink nails.

There is another super cute dress to be had on the GBH, this one is by Black Moon. I really like the style of this dress with the suspender style straps over a t-shirt-like top. I especially like the classic  bats flying across the moon imagery. This dress is also just 1 linden and comes in standard mesh sizes. I think these bat friends might be the very definition of “creepy cute”! They are the GBH prize by Mumuhime Clothing. These cute bats are attachments, and some have a hold pose. They are also pretty cute just kinda standing around.

Batty 3

So I’m considering making this cute over-sized sweatshirt my go-to shirt for those jeans and sneakers kind of days! This cute shirt is the GBH prize by Facepalm. It also comes in standard mesh sizes, though it’s mean to look big, and it has a matching alpha layer. The super fun hat Pru has on is yet another GBH prize, and it too is just 1 linden. This hat by Gachapon! has re-size scripts, and includes a color-change hud. Now hurry on over to the Spooky Cute location and Happy Hunting!

Here are the details, Enjoy!!

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!

Mad Maxine

Mad Maxine

I’m not sure about anyone else but whenever I hear about “Post Apocalyptic” anything, my mind instantly turns to “Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome”! Maybe I’m showing my age here?! I don’t care, the movie is a cult classic. Not to mention that Grace Jones and Tina Turner were nothing less than fierce in that movie. Not sure what I’m talking about? I seriously suggest you google that.

After visiting the current round of Secret Affair, I was very much inspired. With the help of Luas, and Roawenwood, I channeled a little bit of my “Beyond Thunderdome” muses, and easily put together a fierce post-apoc look. Plus I got the added thrill of playing a gacha machine. Bonus!

Shine On You Crazy Diamond

Crazy Diamond

Hello again Fab Free’rs! I don’t know about you, but I’m glad it’s Friday. 🙂 So I had a few more gifts and cheapies from The Skin Fair I wanted to show you. There are just a few days left, so they won’t be available for long. I also noticed a recent gift from Precious Designs out at Fab Free Headquarters, and I just couldn’t resist!

One of the best things about the addition of a “tattoo” layer for Second Life avatars is makeup! I love being able to transform the look of my avatar even further with a change in lip color or some added eye shadow. Sometimes even the smallest change can have a major impact.

That being said, this “Space Invader” lipstick is a 5 linden gift from Adored at The Skin Fair. The name suits it, it’s a bit glossy and has some bluish purple hues you don’t see in your average black lipstick. Next I picked up a fat-pack of smokey eye shadows from Zibska. The shadows are a FREE gift at The Skin Fair, and I love how they look layered over the smokey shadow already part of my skin. Lastly, MUA has this dollarbie pack of tattoo stars out at The Skin Fair as well. You can wear them over your left brow, right brow, or both like in the photo. I think it’s really awesome how these three items made such a dramatic difference in the look of my avatar.

Next, the cat-suit Pru has on is a Fabulously FREE gift from Precious Designs now available at Fab Free Headquarters. This fully mesh suit covers you from your chest to your toes in one piece, that’s right the “shoes” are part of it. Additionally, the outfit includes a color change hud so you can pick a color that fits your style best.

Here are the details, Enjoy!
