Freebies ~ The Benefits of Exploring = FREE STUFF!

WOO Happy New Year, folks! Today I bring you some cool random freebies I found while exploring, looking for more fantasy RP stores for myself and The Directory. I think at this point, every store in the grid has a freebie or two, and the fantasy realm is no exception!

Dress & Wings ~ Simply Fae ~ Nim Fairy Dress (0L)
Hair ~ Exile ~ Artemis, Angel Dust (Christmas gift, still there! 0L)
Hair Wreath ~ Simply Fae ~ Autumn Hairwreath & Hairband (0L)
Makeup ~ Skinthesis ~ Eyeshadow (minipack) (25L)
Ivy Accessories ~ *~*Illusions*~* ~ Hedera Vine Silks (NOTfree)
Location ~ Oubliette

Dress ~ Junbug ~ Skylar (Monthly gift, 0L)
Hair ~ Exile (sold @ Savoir Hair) ~ Susan, Coffee (0L)
Scarf ~ Gor Gurls ~ (part of) Gor Gets Dark, violet (Lucky Chair, 0L)

This is how this outfit would look if it were steampunk.
This free dress from Junbug would be cute with some torn accessories for a she-urt, or a happy and cute but dirty peasant. However, when I saw it, my first thought was cute steampunk. Moar oil stains and metal! Unfortunately, when I dug through my inventory for bronze gears accessories and things, there was literally nothing. I fail, I'm sorry!

To make up for that, here is a picture of a pretty free dress.

Dress ~ *M* ~ Lady in Waiting (0L)
Hair ~ *ARGRACE* ~ Moonlight, platinum (Christmas Group gift, still available! 0L)

Woo! I would encourage everyone to go out and explore, because these are the types of things you can find. What better way to contribute to your roleplay fantasies than to glean free items while you explore new environments and sims and glean ideas?

See you next year! Harharhar~

News ~ << Discord >> Closing!

Sad news! The crazy awesome sim << Discord >> will be closing on January 5th, according to my semi-reliable sources *coughserenitycough*. The sim is full of stores by Japanese creators, most of which won't exist when Discord closes. There's clothes, shoes, hair, skins, everything... but my favorite part is - of course! - the fantasy section! (I also like the little weapons section)

I haven't seen anything over 99L. You should check it out and see if there's anything there that you can't live without, in case the sim goes capoot!

Prim Armor ~ << Discord >> ~ ESU Armor (99L)
Cape, Shirt & Pants ~ Mystic Hope ~ Leaves (Previous camp item, notfree now)
Boots ~ Super Possessed ~ (part of) Marauder (Lucky chair, 0L)
Makeup ~ Glamorize ~ Back to Basics, green (10L fatpack) 
Hair ~ Truth ~ Michelle, mocha (Notfree)
Ears ~ Plastik ~ Animalistic, Plain (Notfree) 

Nearby there's a wall of weapons too, but for the most part the rest is Japanese fashion.
Also near the tp point, there's a pile of gifts for group members, and it's free to join!

I will miss << Discord >>! Besides their awesome stuffs, I always loved running around their eerie sim and staring at all the glowy things.

Now run along and contribute to your fantasies with cheap Discord gear!

Freebies ~ Fun at the MARKETPLACE Part 2!

As promised, here's more of my fantasy finds on the marketplace. First up is a delicious set of men's (oooh!) silks!

Outfit ~ ARIMAN ~ Promo Silks, white (5L)
Feet ~ Mayden Couture ~Profile Pick Gift (0L)
Collar ~ OpenCollar ~ Plain Collar (0L - all styles, all scripted, are free)
Eyes ~ Ibanez Eyes ~ Soft Glow, Chione Light, prim (0L - christmas gift @ Evie's Closet that's still up! GO QUICK)
Hair ~ MADesigns Hair ~ Cruz CP II (Previous group gift, notfree now)
Location ~ Elven Tower that's FREE from House of Alcott!

I'm strongly opposed to making myself a men's set of skin and shapes and whatnots, so you'll just have to deal with me cross-dressing! But isn't that outfit stunning? There's also a girl's freebie sold by ARIMAN, which looks similar but is less bulky and blue. Grab that here. In fact, ARIMAN has a lot of nice silks, all nicely priced. I hope they get an inworld store open soon! Digging through the marketplace has been fun, but it doesn't compare to in world exploring.

As for the gorgeous boy hair, it's not free anymore... but in addition to a hunt or two always running at KMADD, you can also grab other gorgeous free hair and eyes by them at FabFree's headquarters

Kilt ~ MANIAC Mainstore ~ Crusher Kilt (0L)
Bow ~ <SS> Sandy Sage ~ Left Handed Recurve Bow (0L)
Eye Scar ~ Overt ~ (notfree)
Arm belts ~ Firefall ~ (part of) Robin Outfit (past lucky chair gift, notfree)
Bangles ~ Wasabi Pills ~ Lux Bracelets (Past hunt gift, notfreenow)
Necklace ~ Caverna Obscura ~ (part of) Mushroom Dress (Past lucky board gift, notfree)
Shoulder/Arm armor ~ May's Soul ~ (part of) Warrior Girl (Past MM gift, notfree)
Hair ~ MADesigns Hair ~ Mark RD I (Past hunt gift, notfree)
Ears ~ Plastik ~ Animalistic, Plain (Notfree)

I found this awesome kilt on the marketplace, and it led me to a pretty cool store on the grid that has a lucky chair and a couple MMs to hit up.
The bow is AWESOME and FREE! I didn't know where I'd gotten it, and spent almost an hour going in circles on the grid until it occurred to me to check the marketplace. I'm glad I did - because Sandy Sage has a couple other free RP weapons!

Sorry, a lot of that other stuff isn't free anymore. :(!
However! May's Soul, Phoenix & Firefall, Caverna Obscura, and MADesigns all have lots of gifts still available like those ones. May's Soul has four lucky boards and two camps and an Midnight Mania board for different fashionably gorean outfits; Phoenix & Firefall have four lucky chairs and an MM for fantasy outfits and accessories; Caverna Obscura has two group lucky boards (free for customers to join) for fantasy outfits; and of course MADesigns has lots of hunts and a free gift at the FabFree headquarters.

Camisk ~ SKE Design ~ Free Camisk Pack (1L)
Collar ~ OpenCollar ~ Plain Collar (0L - all styles, all scripted, are free)
Hair ~ Truth ~ Janelle (Notfree)

And here we have one of a pack of four cute camisks for nearly-free on the market! The color above is darkred. There's a modest bra and panty layer included for the squeamish, like me.

That's not all! Well, that's all for the pictures, but here's some links to a couple more freebs not pictured in the last couple posts.

~ 1L Blue Silks ~
~ 1L Green Silks ~
~ 5L Blue Silks ~
~ Free MEN'S Yellow Silks ~
~ Free Red Christmas Silks ~
~ Free Black & Gray Silks ~
~ Free White Silks ~
~ Free Blue Silks ~

I much prefer running around in world, but the marketplace is undoubtedly an awesome resource. There's a lot of creators that can't afford numerous outlet stores and advertising, or even one store, and I know a lot of places I would never have found if it weren't for the marketplace.
A huge thanks to these creators for putting their goods out there for us, especially for free!

Freebies (shittons!) ~ Fun at the MARKETPLACE!

I was browsing through the marketplace for freebies the other day, and found a few fantasy related ones I had to share. Some of these might be old news; but if some where new to me, then hopefully some will be new to you too!

Arrgh, alpha prims... must... die...!!
Cloak ~ Staccato Strom (SS) ~ Master's Cloak (1L)
Belt ~ Staccato Strom (SS) ~ Master's Belt (1L)
Boots ~ Duh! ~ Pirate Boots, black (0L - Men's flat or women's heeled in lotsa colors!)
Hair ~ Analog Dog ~ AD Hairbase, brown (0L)
Eyepatch ~ Port Obello ~ Pirate Eye Patch (0L)
X Pasties ~ Canimal ~ (part of) T0RN (0L)
Eye Scar ~ Overt ~ (notfree)
Corset & Pants ~ Chaospire ~ Black Rose (Notfree, but half off this month!)

Note! CANIMAL is closing soon, and all the store is currently 50L and under, along with their old table of freebies you'll find T0RN at. They're more emopunk than fantasy, lol, but still. They were the first store I ran into after joining, besides the freebie dungeons. :'(
Both the belt and cloak are free from the marketplace store by SS! That was an awesome find, and Staccato Strom has a lot of other dollarbies too! One of which is the dirty silks set: ~

Silks ~ Staccato Strom (SS) ~ Dirty Silks (1L)
Feet (not including rope anklets) ~ Mayden Couture ~Profile Pick Gift (0L)
Rope accessories ~ BINA ~ (part of) Flaminium (Store gone! :(! )
Hair ~ Maitreya ~ Yasmin, Caramel (notfree)
My house furnishings ~ No idea.

These dirty, dirty silks are actually very awesomely made, and well worth the whole one linden. AND they're not the set you can steal! There's also a gorgeous blue and vivid green silk set for 1L each! For some reason I like the dirty ones the most though. I hope that's not indicative of anything.
There's a couple other dollarbies in Staccato's marketplace store too, so check it out and nab em for yourself!

Here's a black silks dress ensemble I sortof mentioned the other day that I also saw on the marketplace ~

Silks Dress ~ YESS Designs ~ Dark Mysterious (0L)
Feet ~ Mayden Couture ~Profile Pick Gift (0L)
Hair ~ MAGIKA ~ Delora, Brown (0L)
Nails ~ [Virtual/Insanity] ~ Basic Nails & Rings (Current Subscribo gift, 0L)
Necklace ~ Mariposa ~ Triptych (Notfree)
Location ~ Stone Misery
Looking at it now, that's a terrible picture for that outfit. It's got a pretty belt and skirt and I just made it disappear. Oh well!

Yum, delicious freebies!
I've got some more to post, but I think I want to sleep. So stay tuned for a Part Deux on more marketplace freebies to spice up your SL Fantasy life!

Monday, December 27, 2010


Holypoop, don't know how I missed this one, but I'm glad I didn't miss all of it.

From Dec 18th to the 31st, Chaospire is having a 50% off sale on EVERYTHING in their store! In world and on the marketplace ~

Chaospire has been around forever, and has a lot of amazing and unique designs in a few fantasy genres. They seemed to be on a bit of a hiatus as far as new designs went for a couple years there, but it looks like they've been picking up with a number of gorgeous new releases lately! So if you haven't been there in a while, now's the perfect time to go re-check them out. And if you've never been there before... then you definitely need to drop in. Now. That was a command.

YAAAY! Me and CROON <33 being excited at Chaospire!
This entire store will be my Christmas/birthday present to myself, I think!
Huge thanks to Chaospire for first inspiring me to turn to fantasy in SL, and for offering us this awesome holiday sale now. <3

Freebies & Cheapies ~ White Armory AND LITTLE TASTA IS BACK!

Okie, before I post White Armory's weekly gift and cheapie, I have wonderful news for the fantasy fashion world in SL.

I, for one, have always looked forward to updates from Haven Designs; but NOW I'm going to be stalking them outright, for Little Tasta's designer Etana Vella has joined forces with them! Little Tasta was my favorite store in the short time they existed, and when they left the grid they left a hole in my beauty-loving heart. So when I found out she joined the already awesome designers at Haven designs, I was ecstatic! Her prim work, textures, and designs are... alfkdjalsd.
Haven Designs has already re-released one of Etana's designs... the jungle blossoms/elven love set! So the outfit you saw me blog here (and once again down below, because it's so awesome,) is once again available on the grid, woo!

Top/Skirt/Necklace/Hair flower ~ Haven Designs ~ Jungle Blossoms, green (notfree - but available again!)
Hair (with hairband) ~ Maitreya ~ Lauren, almond (Subscribo gift, 0L)
Boots ~ Atalante ~ (part of) Honey Set (Camp chair, 0L)
Makeup ~ Glamorize ~ Back to Basics, green (10L fatpack)
Arm Bracer and belts ~ Firefall ~ (part of) Robin Outfit (past lucky chair gift)
Bra & Panty straps ~ May's Soul ~ (part of many of their outfits)
Ears ~ Plastik ~ Animalistic, Plain (Notfree)

Loooooove. I also especially love Glamorize, and their very affordable yet pretty makeup.
Just so you know, Phoenix and Firefall ~ both are in the same shop ~ have four lucky chairs with loads of awesome outfits and accessories in various themes. 'Robin' isn't in the chair anymore from what I can tell, but while checking the store for updates I won myself two other awesome huntress-like outfits. \o/

Ok, weekly White Armory medieval goodies! As usual, The White Armory has put out a free group gift dress, and a 50L group cheapie dress. Yaay! Thank you Bee and Colton!

Dress ~ The White Armory ~ (Group gift, 0L)
Hair ~ *ARGRACE* ~ Moonlight, light brown (Group gift, 0L)
Location ~ Quality Designs

The pretty hair is part of a free fatpack for joining the ARGRACE group, which is free to join! The fatpack comes with earmuff hairs too. It's the group's limited winter gift, so grab it quick. The same probably applies to Maitreya's subscribo gift! Join quickly and run to the history and grab your gift, and then stay in for more.

And here's a peak at the weekly TWA steal! For only 50L, this normally 900L gown can be YOURS ~

If Bee didn't make new gowns every week, I'd be worried we might receive the whole store in freebie or gift soon!

Thanks you to all the lovely designers who've been so generous this holiday season! My inventory is bursting with amazing gifts.

Freebies ~ MERRY CHRISTMAS! From Knickknack, ImmateriA, and more!

WOO! Merry after Christmas, guys! I've just got back from my family and pumpkin pie and presents to a pile of SL friends and prim kurisumasu keki and almost equally delightful presents! Sorry the pictures below are kindof poor - I wanted to get the limited time gifts up asap!

First up! Make sure you hit up Evie's Closet and Fallen Gods Inc for their Christmas present piles under their trees. Fallen Gods Inc in particular has added even more - including gifts from Wasabi Pills and Rfyre!

Here's a Christmas special Discount gown from Knickknack ~

Dress ~ Knickknack ~ Margaret, red (Christmas Special, 100L)
Hair ~ Analog Dog ~ Joy, dirty blonde (Christmas gift, 0L)
Eyes ~ Ibanez Eyes ~ Tranquil Eyes, Walnut (Gift under tree @ Evie's Closet 0L)
Necklace ~ Alchemy Immortalis ~ Amaranthus Diminue (Survey gift, 0L)
Bracelet ~ Exodi ~ Aubrey Bangles (old Advent Calender gift)

I've been eyeing the Margaret gowns among others at Knickknack, so when I saw this one was on sale I jumped on it. The textures are absolutely stunning.

Also, that hair is a beautiful free gift from Analog Dog... and comes with a variety of hairbases to go with! Right next to this gift is also a fatpack of hairbases in a variety of colors... and they're MOD!!!!1 Meaning, they can be tinted to match almost any hair color you've got. A lot of my hair looks pretty bad without a hairbase, and I haven't been able to find a good fatpack of moddable hairbases yet, so this is by far my favorite christmas gift from SL! Thank you Analog Dog! Here's a closeup of the hairbase and the pretty free eyes from Ibanez ~

And below we have a delightfully dirty peasant dollarbie outfit from Knickknack that you can pick up even if you can't get the gorgeous Margaret dress: ~

Outfit ~ Knickknack ~ Mildred (1L)
Hair ~ ChiChickie ~ Merry, Brunette (Christmas gift, 0L)

The more I look around the quaint store of Knickknack, the more I'm loving it. They have a lot of beautifully made medieval and/or gorean designs, and I've added a few of them to my to-buy list.
The hair there is also a freebie; I'd join ChiChickie's subo along with Analog Dog if you love hair, especially free hair. ;)

And last but not least for this post, a badass demon/succubus avi from ImmateriA!

Don't you wish your demon was hot like me?
Avatar (skin, horns, hooves, tail, ears) ~ ImmateriA ~ Christmas Krampus (Christmas gift, 0L)
Hair ~ Discord Designs ~ EFB01, black (Subo gift, 0L)
Outfit/Jewelry ~ YESS Designs ~ Dark Mysterious (0L)

This badass avatar looks unisex from the torso design, and optional facial hair. Big thanks to ImmateriA for throwing this under their Christmas tree! I'm wearing the equally badass FLEXIOMG dread hair that Discord Designs sent out to their subscribo, and it's still in there if you run and join and dig through the history! (Thankyooou Discord Designs for sending it out, even though not all 1000 had sold exaaaactly on the cut off date. ;) It's now one of my favorite rando-hairs!)

Remember a lot of these freebs are temporary Christmas gifts, so run along quick before you miss out on some amazing gear for your little fantasies!

Freebies ~ New Caverna Obscura Lucky Board Outfits!

WOO! New items were put in the boards at Caverna Obscura. These boards are GROUP ONLY, but the way to join the group now has changed. It was recently 500L to join, but now it is free IF you're a customer. So if you've bought anything within the last 30 days, contact Elvina Elwing and you're in!

Click here to see the last Caverna Obscura post to see what was on the board last, including the Undine, Drow, and Eowyn outfits that are still on the boards, along with camping tips!

This is Madness!
Outfit ~ Caverna Obscura ~ Undine (Group Lucky Boards, Free to join for recent customers)
Hair ~ Maitreya ~ Yasmin, Caramel (notfree)
Ears ~ Plastik ~ Animalistic, Plain (Notfree)

OK so board changes!

In the left board, Anariel in Purple, Arleccina, Gypsy, Hydromancer, and Green Shroomie were taken out. The Drow Priestess set and Eowyn Gown from last time are still in. And theeese were added!

In the right board, Anariel in Purple, Arleccina, Gypsy, Hydromancer, and Purple Shroomie were taken out and these were added in addition to the Drow Priestess and Undine Gown Sets:

A note on these boards:
These boards do NOT change item when the timer runs out - it just changes letter!
The boards only change items if someone wins something.
The boards do not change randomly - they go in a specific order!
This info comes in handy. Since they go in a specific order, you can time when you go to camp if you only need an item or two. Also, if it's late and there's not many people there, you can keep certain boards up and not flip them, so that you can have a better chance of that item going to your letter when the timer runs out.

Also don't forget to grab the December group gift hiding in the freebie boxes on the same platform as the lucky boards for some Christmas-y accessories!

Thanks Elvina for those time-sucking lucky boards! <3 A lot of my favorite fantasy outfits come from this store, and a good chunk of them were free thanks to this amazing creator's generosity.

Freebies ~ RP Realm Gifts!

Newbies these days are SPOILED! Spoiled, I tell you! Back in my day, we wore freebie dungeon non flexi MS paint wings and bling eyeballs and system skirts, and RPed uphill both ways!
No, but seriously. I've been digging through a lot of RP realms lately and I've noticed they all set out a lot of freebies that are actually very nice! I took the boxes of freebs half expecting to be blinded as soon as I rezzed the box to open it (the freebie dungeons scarred me), but I was very wrong, and I'm very glad I was! Here's a couple of things I've found so far that I love: ~

Dress ~ Mystara (landing) ~ Saltorello Blue & Brown Dresses (0L)
Hair ~ Boon ~ Hair OCI185 Mat (0L)
Shell Jewelry ~ Fire Storm Creations ~ Shells of Ua, White & tan (Notfree)
Location ~ Pirate Island of Jabberwock (Pirate RP sim, info at landing!)

The Saltorello dress comes with both a blue and brown corset & skirt, which I've mixed and matched. Thanks, mysterious creator of Mystara! 
And below, we have a male and female RP outfit from Everwind ~

Outfits ~ Everwind (landing) ~ Sean (men's) and Grace (Women's) (0L)
Hair ~ D!va ~ Chisato, Cat's Eye (Former group gift, more gifts and Lucky Boards up now though!)
Necklace ~ Fire Storm Creations ~ Shells of Ua, White & tan (Notfree)
Location ~ Mirromere

The outfits free at Everwind are done by (I think) Fantasia of Fantasia & Elements, who are absolutely amazing. (Are they one store? Two stores? Peanut butter and jelly? If I'm being honest... no idea) I could've guessed it was them when I first put it on and saw the beautiful, unique design and delicious textures. I stared at that dress for ten minutes before thinking I should maybe take a picture, heh. It's now moved to a permanent spot in my inventory, in my RP dresses folder! Yaaay!

Thank you to the creators who've made these available to us! Also, thanks to the sims who're open to visitors and provide so much info and help and, in these cases, beautiful freebies to fantasy and roleplayer geeks like me!

Freebies ~ Elvenbreath's Key and Overt Gift!

More freebies tonight!
First off, it looks like ~*Elvenbreath*~ is holding a little hunt! TP in, and look amongst the keys scattered across the store for one marked for sale, and inside will be a christmas gift for you! I'm not sure how long this hunt will last, but I'm guessing till Christmas. Go!

Dress ~ Elvenbreath ~ Cinnamon (Hunt gift, 0L)
Hair ~ 3636 ~ Noella, black (Christmas gift under the tree, 0L)
Feet ~ Mayden Couture ~Profile Pick Gift (0L)
Earrings ~ Tekeli-li ~ Lantern Earrings (1L)
Jewelry ~ Tekeli-li ~ Inanna (Notfree)
Ears ~ Plastik ~ Animalistic, Plain (Notfree)
Skin ~ F'd Up ~ Elai (Store no longer exists)
Location ~ the Hollow Earth, outside Tekeli-li

I'm not sure why I'm a dark-haired faerie drow, but lets go with it. I feel preettyyy, oh soo preettyyy! Elvenbreath is also going to be holding another color-specific 50% off sale this next week, on RED this time! It's not up yet, but I'll post when it is!

You can't tell really well from the pictures, but the eyes I'm wearing in these pics are different from what I normally wear. They're freebies from the amazing Ibanez Eyes, which can be found under the christmas tree at Evie's Closet! Ibanez Eyes is one of the best ~ especially for fantasy ~ eye stores on the grid. If you like eyes and things, definitely be sure to stop by Evie's christmas tree. For more info on the gifts at Evie's, check this post!

Also, while wandering around, I found an awesome store and in it was an awesome free dress. Go!

Dress ~ Overt ~ Patterns Gift Dress (0L)
Backpack ~ Everwind ~ Travellers Backpack (0L)
Hair ~ 3636 ~ Noella, black (Christmas gift under the tree, 0L)
Location ~ Everwind (Fantasy RP realm, info and pack at landing!)

My, was Everwind pretty. I didn't get to take a long look before I crashed to death - might've been shadow's fault, alas - but it looked amazing. One more RP sim added to my LM folder! Also, go to Tekeli-li and visit the Hollow Earth. Everyone needs to go at least once. It's one of my favorite places to go and just... sit. It's so interesting.

Now go forth and gobble freebies, little ones, and make your own little fantasies!

Freebies ~ Piles of Presents from EMO-tions and MORE!

EMO-tions is in the holiday gift-giving mood, which means presents for us!

I feel like I'm about to go Super-Saiyan.
Dress/kilt ~ EMO-tions ~ Harmony (Mainstore giftpile, 0L)
Hair ~ EMO-tions ~ Ricarda, black (Mainstore giftpile, 0L)
Gloves & Boots ~ Super Possessed ~ Marauder (Lucky chair, 0L)
Sword ~ Super Possessed ~ Fenrir's Tooth (0L)
Ears ~ Plastik ~ Animalistic, Plain (Notfree)
Eye Scar ~ Overt ~ (notfree)
Location ~ Fallen Gods Inc

I've combined the men's outfit (kilt - cape also included) with the women's (dress top - boa and skirt also included) 'cause I'm cool. There's a LOT of gifts, located in the mainstore on a table inside, including more hair, accessories, a christmassy outfit, and more!

Speaking of piles of presents, Evie's Closet has added to their pile too! (Click here to see some of their other presents!) And be sure to check back to Fallen Gods Inc, because their presents are being added to as well.

I love the Holidays! Thanks to all the stores here for their awesome generosity.  <3

Freebies & Cheapies ~ This week's WHITE ARMORY gifts & Free Ice Skates!

It's Sunday, which means a new group gift and cheapie from The White Armory!

Dress ~ The White Armory ~ Crimson Solstice (Group gift, 0L)
Hair ~ Truth ~ Janelle (Notfree)
Ears ~ Plastik ~ Animalistic, Plain (Notfree)
Location ~ Mystara (Fantasy RP Sim, visitor tag and info at landing!)

And this week's 50L gown is the light version of the Fairie Gown set! Ooooh, so pretty.

Thank you Bee & Colton! <3
I like how their advert pictures are so amazing, too. They're gorgeous and artsy, but show you perfectly what you're buying, but doesn't exaggerate the beauty of their gowns at all!

Also, not exactly fantasy, but The White Armory also put out free male and female old-fashioned ice skates in their new Fantasy Ice Ballroom! Just take the red teleporter up when you TP in, and run into the warm lil cabin ~

The realm of Mystara, by the way, is a gorgeous sim. I wandered around forever with my little observer tag and took a thousand pictures ~ most of which I wasn't in, heh ~ and had to take great pains to avoid the many RPers. It looks like a promising Fantasy RP realm, and it's been added to my LM folder for places to have one of my lil fantasies. ~

Freebies ~ MORE SILKS and other goodies!

While traveling the grid today in search of more fantasy roleplay stores to add to the directory, I found a few random freebies I thought I'd share! This post'll show you some cool freebies from House of Alcott, Fire Horse, and Trident.

Silks ~ House of Alcott ~ White Pearl Silks (0L)
Hair ~ Exile ~ Rina, Chocolate Swirl (Subscribo gift, in history 0L)
Feet & anklets ~ Mayden Couture ~Profile Pick Gift (0L)

Not much coverage there on that one, but then again that makes a good silk set. Also, these silks were made for GUYS! (Yum!) In fact, one of the cool things I noticed about both House of Alcott/Damian's Desires and Fire Horse is that the majority of outfits and things there were made for guys. I definitely approve; we need more fantasy and roleplay gear for the male population! Amongst the men's fantasy outfits at Fire Horse though, I spotted two boxes for a white Roman-style toga - one for guys, one for girls. Here's the girl's one ~

Outfit ~ Fire Horse ~ Roman Toga (0L)
Hair ~ MAGIKA ~ Delora, Brown (0L)
Feet ~ Mayden Couture ~Profile Pick Gift (0L)
(Sandals, worn on same attach point as feet and modded to fit, are ooold, and I can't find them)

And not only is almost everything I'm wearing free, but everything else IN these pictures is too! I don't normally go looking for things other than clothes and accessories, but the bath and tower and tree in those pics came to me, and I'm glad they did!
At the House of Alcott in front of the nearly naked man cutout wearing the free pearl silks you'll find two boxes set to 0L - one with the bath, the other with the tower. As you can see, they're gorgeous!
And at T R I D E N T, under the yule trees, you'll find a gift with the wintery Robin Tree inside!

Thanks to these lovely vendors, who've so generously contributed to my little fantasies. ~

Freebies & Cheapies ~ Gift from ARWEN'S! And Elvenbreath Sale!

I logged in this morning to an AWESOME surprise from one of my favorite stores, !** Arwen's Creations **!
I put on my group tag (free to join!) and TP'd to the store, and above the Free Women Starter Kit gift was another gift - One of Arwen's gorgeous new cloaks in an exclusive holiday red!

Cloak ~ !**Arwen's Creations**! ~ Biera Hood, red (Group gift, 0L)
Dress ~ Madison's Creations ~ Medieval Gown (0L)
Location ~ ViGo Market

SO PRETTY! Thank you Arwen! <3
It comes with different hood and fuzz options. It's absolutely gorgeous, and is tempting me to buy all of the other newly released cloaks! Actually, it's tempting me to buy one of everything in that store. Arwen's gowns and accessories are beautiful and detailed, and have very merciful price tags!

Another good store also had good news - Elvenbreath is celebrating a new release with a 50% off sale this week on all things white! All sale items are marked by a lil gold heart.
So if you were planning on shopping at Elvenbreath and buying, say, the ethereal Linume Dress, now would be a good time! Here's a small taste of what's waiting for you at ~*Elvenbreath*~

Freebies ~ Arwen's FREE Free Women! ~

I love my fantasy as much as the next nerd, but when it comes to my Gorean RP, I am very By-The-Books. One of my pet peeves is Free Women who do not dress or act like it. I know a lot of outfitters don't make clothes more conservative than a tavern wench, but there are options, girls!
In fact, the best and most amazing option - to simply add a touch of modesty and elegance to your favorite outfits - is an easy and FREE option!

BEHOLD! FREE and RECOLORABLE modesty underwear sets for Free Women and other modest women on the grid, courtesy of the absolutely amazing designer at !** Arwen's Creations**! ~

Both sets are included ~ the light, pretty silky set and the warm, course woolen set. Mix and match as you please, as you may only need an undershirt, or just a veil. And it's not just for Goreans; I've used this prettily patterned underwear without the veils and scarves to modest-up some of my medieval dresses too!
The prims are scripted to change color, but all pieces are fully modify, so you can recolor and tint to perfectly match your favorite dresses and outfits! Here's some examples of Gorean Free Woman-friendly outfit modifications:

Outfit ~ Tyranny Designs/Grixdale ~ Eliza, Sky (Fantasy store currently unavailable)
Hair ~ Truth ~ Janelle (Notfree)

Of course, the level of modesty required in free women varies from town to town - some don't care if you're slave-like if you're a peasant, some don't require headscarves, some require even more bulk to hide your figure, some don't allow you to go outside alone if you're higher caste, etc - most do agree on these things: Non-see-through face veils, covered torsos and arms, and hidden legs.

The Free Woman Starter Kit also comes with a red wool dress, and lots of different caste shawls too! Here I am sporting the colors of the Scribe, my favorite caste ~

There's nothing better than adding a little variety and spice to your fantasies, and with an internet teeming with slaves and panther girls, I'd say RPing a Free Woman in the world of Gor is the way to go! Especially since getting the clothes for it is now as easy as TPing away. ~
