A Return to Darkness

A Return to Darkness

Back in my early days of Second Life-ing, I was straight up a goth girl.   Probably because it’s the complete antithesis of who I really am, and it was fun to explore all the deep, darkness of it all.  I know I’ve blathered about this before, about being who you want to be in SL, etc.  But what I do want to touch upon is how FabFree made me realise that I didn’t have to have just one style.  When I started blogging here back in 2017, I realised that there were so many different freebies hanging around the grid that I could play around with, and since that moment I haven’t really looked back – I just get what I like!  But it is nice to revisit old friends, isn’t it?

The Deep Dark

I’m getting that Morgan le Fay feeling today (you know, when she’s an antagonist), and bubbling up some magical devilry in the depths of the earth.  To get this look, I need look no further than the Vanity Event.  They’ve got a bunch of gifts peppered around at different stalls, and they’re all free.  You don’t even need to join a group here, just click on the boxes and bags, and they’re yours.  I got this gorgeous gown over at the TOG display.  It comes in both black and white versions, and also has a pair of shoes included (not pictured).  Who doesn’t need a good gown?

The Perfect Excuse

The Perfect Excuse

Here’s the story.  I was on my way to a party that happened to be in the  middle of a forest.  And then the cabbie let me out in what was clearly the wrong spot, and here I am, not dressed for the weather again in an icy, albeit very pretty locale.  Now if only I could get some reception on my phone I might make my way to the eggnog that has my name written all over it.

Bonfire of the Vanities

To be honest, I really really really just wanted to take a picture at The Forest sim, because every year it’s my favourite place to take photos during the holidays.  The twinkling lights, the deep blue skies, the towering trees… oof, it gets me right in the chimichangas every time.  Anywhos,  This month’s round of Vanity has some fun gifts for members of their free to join group!  You’ll find a swirly Christmas tree right in the middle of the room with gifts on it, and there are some really nice ones.  Here’s what I grabbed:

  • FREE Dress by Beyond sized for Hourglass, Legacy and Maitreya
  • FREE Pose by ATP with 4 more in the box
  • FREE Headband by Oops, comes with an HUD to change the colour of the band and the roses

Head on over to Vanity ASAP!

Oop!  My signal is back!

Big mistake. Big. Huge. I have to go shopping now.

Big mistake. Big. Huge. I have to go shopping now.

For anyone who doesn’t know, the title of this post and my photo are a quote from the movie Pretty Woman starring Julia Roberts and Richard Gere. If you have seen the movie, it will make sense. If you haven’t, well I highly suggest you add it to your movie list. The shopping scene is one of the best in the movie in my opinion.

That said, I feel like this is how I would have looked lugging home all of the free gifts at the current round of Vanity. I also of course happen to be wearing a few. All the gifts are free, you just need to join the Vanity event group. The group is free to join. I picked three of the many free gifts to share with you that I thought really went well together. The outfit I am wearing is from Queenz, my sunnies are from Avada, and this lip color is from GO Makeup. Lastly I also picked up a little bit of bling by Clever & Cool on the Marketplace to wear with these high-waisted pants. Keep reading for more details, and peep the credits at the end.

Queenz

I wouldn’t dare try to pull off all this white in my real life, however here in Second Life it’s such a win. This cropped top with ruffled sleeves, and the matching pants are the free gift at Vanity by Queenz. The pieces can be worn together or separately. Also, the top comes in a version sans the sleeves. The pants (since I cropped them out of the photo) are fitted through the waist and hips, then are a long loose-leg pant.

Sizes Included: Yentaments BBL Body, Maitreya Lara, Ebody Curvy, Slink Hourglass, Belleza Freya, 9S Jessica, Sking Katena

Avada 

The way a lot of people feel about shoes, I feel about sunglasses. There’s no such thing as too many pairs. These are the free Vanity group gift by Avada. They have resize scripts and a texture hud. The hud gives you 5 solid color choices for the frames, 7 options for the lenses, and 2 metal choices.

GO Makeup 

I love this mini HD lip palette by GO Makeup. It comes with 4 juicy red lip shades that scream summer. They also are free at Vanity with the Vanity group tag. This set comes in appliers for Catwa HD Lips and Genus HD Lips. For Catwa head wearers, this means you’ll need the free HD Lips add-on if you do not already have it. Don’t have HD Lips with your head yet? Head over to Catwa and get a redelivery, you need an upgrade! Here’s an awesome tutorial by Virtual Bloke about Catwa HD Lips and how to use them. For Genus head wearers, I believe the HD option is included in your hud.

Clever & Cool 

Finally, I felt like this outfit needed a little something extra. Thankfully I came across this cute gemstone belly chain by Clever & Cool for just 25 linden on the Marketplace. It has resize scripts built in, as well as lots of texture choices. I think it looks pretty cute as a belt, and is well worth the paltry price tag. If this one isn’t your style, there are a few others with the same price point, as well as several other types of jewelry.

Dressed for the Season

Dressed for the Season

In my books, you can never have enough dresses.  I’m sure that if I lined up all my virtual dresses they would stretch at the very least from here to Europe.  I mean, it’s a bit of a mind boggling thing to think of how that would actually work, but nevertheless I’m sticking with my theory.

She’s so Vain

Keeping with the theme of events that are handing out gifts, Vanity is following suit in spectacular fashion.  Join the Vanity Group for free [HERE] and you’ll gain access to all the boxes by each display!  Now…here’s what I picked up!

  • FREE dress by Avale sized for Freya, Hourglass, Isis, Maitreya and Legacy
  • FREE shoes by Look at Me sized for Maitreya and Legacy
  • FREE Lipstick by FNNTY with appliers for Omega and Genus
  • FREE Ornament by Peekaboo with Bento hold

And there’s so much more too!  Vanity is open until December 25th!

Enjoy!

Cheap Thrills


Sweet Sorcery

It probably is not a good idea to ask a witch if she can turn someone into a frog. She just might show you. It is however a good idea to ask me about the 12 linden gifts by Firelight and Nerdy Girl at the current round of Twe12ve. Most, if not all of the participating shops have a 12-linden item along with their event items and exclusives. I picked up the hair gift by Firelight and the clothing gift by Nerdy Girl. Keep reading for some info about each of these 12 linden finds, or scroll down for the credits. As for me, I’m gonna enjoy this frog!

Firelight

I really like this high ponytail hairstyle by Firelight. The long wispy bangs make me think of Bridget Bardot and that is never a bad thing. This hairstyle is the Firelight 12 linden gift at Twe12ve. It comes in 2 sizes and has a color change hud with the choice of either the dark brown shade shown, or a light brown shade. There’s no need to join a group to get this special price, just look for the little gift vendor at the Firelight stall at the Twe12ve event.

Nerdy Girl

The top by Nerdy Girl I’m wearing is also just 12 linden at Twe12ve. It comes in quite a few sizes, and has an alpha layer so it is suitable for classic non-mesh avatars. This cute baby-doll style top has a color/texture change hud with 6 solid color choices, and 6 prints. Again, there’s no need for any group, just pay the gift vendor 12 linden.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, TMP, Slink (Hourglass, Phsique), Belleza (Venus, Freya, Isis), Standard Mesh (xs – XL) + Alpha Layer

Here’s What I Have On:

He Calls Me Kitten

Meow! One of the things I love the most about fashion in Second Life is the way it can inspire me to create a look, play a character, or personify a facet of my personality. I hope this free group gift bodysuit by Pure Poison motivates or inspires you to have some fun with your wardrobe. This free group gift at Pure Poison comes in a few sizes, and has a color change options with six color options including the black option shown. At this time the Pure Poison group is free to join, and there are several group gifts available. Have fun with this one Fab Free’rs!

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Isis, Freya), Slink Hourglass

An Evening Walk

An Evening Walk
There is something sacred about the evening walk in the summer.  You should always make time for that wonderful pastime as the sun goes down, and if it’s in a scenic location and involves ice cream then all the better!

A Bit of Vanity

It’s the Vanity event’s anniversary!  And in spectacular fashion, they’ve got plenty of gifts to go around.  Join their group for FREE and get access to all the lovely gifties that are available at each stall.  Here’s what I’m showing you today!

  • FREE outfit by Rosary sized for Freya, Hourglass and Maitreya
  • FREE lipstick by Lisa Walker with appliers for Catwa, Genus and Lelutka heads

As a little disclaimer, I believe some of the group gifts are set to the wrong group at the moment, so be patient to get a few of them because I’m sure they’ll sort it out eventually!  These two I’m showing you though are set to the correct Vanity Event Group.

What will you find at Vanity?

Fade Into You

Fade Into You

I want to hold the hand inside you
I want to take a breath that’s true

Do you ever get into these weird “I need to listen to music from high school” moments?  I’ve been falling down the 90’s alternative hole for the last few weeks and it’s bringing me back to the days when we wore flannel shirts, while sitting on the front steps of the school drinking Jolt Cola.  Luckily I’m not actually doing any of these things, just getting all maudlin and hanging out in my bedroom listening to Mazzy Star and Smashing Pumpkins.  At least I’m staying away from the flannel shirts for now!

A bit of Vanity

Ok, I’m done ranting.  Let’s get to the freebies!  I found this super cute loungewear set by Scandalize and Noir over at the Vanity event!  It comes in this sweet pink colour, either with the ombré I’ve got on, or just plain pink.  Cute right?  I got it by joining the Vanity group for free and clicking on the group gift vendor that’s hiding in the corner.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya

Psycho Killer

There’s a new group gift at Psycho Barbie!  My cute leg tattoos come in three versions: super faded, slightly faded and dark and fresh.  I went for the middling version so you can get a fair idea of what they look like.  They come with an Omega applier.  I got mine by joining the Psycho Barbie group for 50 Lindens.  There are a few other group gifts there too to pick up while you’re at it!

I’d better stick some upbeat music on before it’s too late!

Hibernation

Hibernation

I am back to my cocoon of coziness here in SL!  January kinda brings out the need to hibernate in me.  I feel like I’m becoming a bear, but with less fur and slightly less bulky.   You know what, though… a bear would never fit into this adorable outfit!

Being Vain

I actually escaped my cocoon of comfort to head over to Vanity.  I’m pretty pleased that I did, because there’s a super cute new group gift by Scandalize for members of the Vanity group.  The tank top, shorts and long socks I’m wearing are so adorable I couldn’t pass them up.  They come with an extensive HUD to change the colour of all the details (like the laces, and pearls), as well as a version without the eyes on it.  So cute!  I got mine by joining the Vanity group for FREE and clicking on the vendor near the landing point.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya

Stay cozy!
