Free Dove Challenge #4


Wow, Free Dove Challenge #4 already, it hardly seems a month since I started blogging for The Free Dove, but I guess this is proof of it!  I’ve got another head to toe look made entirely of items found at The Free Dove, mesh body excluded of course.  Don’t put off heading down there for this look, as parts of it are only available through the 31st. Even though I literally have everything from The Free Dove in my inventory, I still go down to the store and wander around to see what calls to me for my weekly challenge post.  This berry blue dress caught my eye and I decided to see what I had from The Free Dove to complete the look.  Remeber, everything found at The Free Dove is FREE!

Gidget’s Style has generously set this “Shelby Dress” out at the Dove, just this December, so if you’ve not been in a few months, you should go down and not only snag this if you like it but check also for some other new gifts, such as the ones I’ve already blogged from Poeme.  The Shelby Dress comes in 5 standard sizes, with an alpha layer if needed.  I’m actually wearing the large size, which amazingly fit over my Hourglass body when I reduced my breasts to standard size ones, no alpha hud needed!


You’ll have to go today or tomorrow to snag these shoes which are a perfect match.  Shoe-ddiction is a designer for the Dove’s January mini-hunt, with some super lovely shoes to find.  Look for the white shoe hunt objects scattered around The Free Dove, as well as at Shoe-ddicton’s main store. The “{SA} Summer Bloom Blue” come sized for Slink, Maitreya, Belleza, and TMP high feet. I also blogged a pair of ankle boots from this same hunt that I LOVE, here. 

My hair is yet another gift that Firelight has up at the Dove.  The “Axisia” hair comes in rigged, unrigged, and busty versions, with a mini-essentials hud of  8 colors, as well as a tinting wheel to customize any shade that you like.  Firelight also has a discount store in the Plaza outside next to The Free Dove where they have single color sets for as low as 39L. There are also 2 lucky letter chairs at this location, you’ll need the Firelight group to play, but the group is FREE!

My glasses are from one of the huge boxes from Ydea, there are 2 set out at the Dove.  In my Free Dove Challenge #2 post, I provided a tutorial on how to modify.  I did modify this pair as well.  The good news is that this pair is copy, so you’ll want to do that first when and if you modify them.  They come as a gold pair of sunglasses, and I made the lenses clear and colored the frames this deep shade of violet to coordinate with the blues and purples of the dress.


I’m not wearing my usual skin, rather one from Alaskametro<3 .  I really like how clean the “alaskametro<3 “Serenity” skin” is. It also comes with an optional eyebrow shaper, lipstick, and eyeshadow.  This is super nice for those of us who love to play with makeup, as I do.  I find most skins come with makeup already applied and so if you wish to change it up with makeup you have to find some covers the makeup on the skin well.  In this case, I added makeup to coordinate with the dress with makeup found in that is found in the gift of all gifts that is the “Dulce Secrets 2017 Free Dove Collection”  I really loved this eyeshadow with it’s shades of blues and purples, it’s the “::DS:: On the Horizon Eyeshadow 8″, and I rounded off my makeup with ” ::DS:: Rosy Glow Blush”, and “::DS:: On The Horizon Lipstick 2.”  My little eyes aren’t the best to show off eyeshadow sometimes, and there’s a vendor ad in the box which will allow you to preview this entire set of 8 shadows, so I’ll include that pic, keep in mind I opted not wear the included pearls.

Drawing from the light blue highlights at the inner corner of the eyeshadow I chose the darkest of the light blues in Dulce Secrets‘ “Blue Bubbly” nail palette.  This is also found in the “Dulce Secrets 2017 Free Dove Collection” and is for Slink nails only. The final detail is a pair of earrings that I wear often, as well as worn often on this blog.  Found in the jewelry section is this gorgeous pair of gold and mother-of-pearl hoops.  Earthstones is the designer of the “EarthStones Twisted Hoop Earrings.”  Here’s a Missy Pro-tip about these earrings, if you like them as much as I do, you can snag a silver pair, as well as several other gifts, many of which I have blogged (link to a search of Earthstones on this blog), the Earthstones group is 250L to join.

I’ve talked to many people since I’ve started blogging for The Free Dove who are older members of Second Life.  They’ve been surprised at the quality of the gifts offered.  Paloma, the owner of the Free Dove, has worked very hard to get some quality gifts in the store, and it has paid off for everyone.  You’ll need to join The Free Dove group in order to snag everything in this post, but The Free Dove is and always will be FREE to join. As a member, you’ll receive notices from The Designers who participate, as well as when myself, and all the other Free Dove bloggers blog something from the store.  Hop down there and take a pic of your favorite find, and post it here or on my facebook page to win a gift bundle of up to $500 lindens in value.
