I wanted to do a post of historical(ish) items for the female figures, but it doesn’t look like I’ll have time for it this month after all. ‘Tis true that historical-themed stuff is scarce, freebies or otherwise, but there is a fair amount of extra bits that work great with paid-for items. A few freebies are even designed for kit-bashing; Chohole has a few sets like that (including some for the My Princess Gown; toward the bottom of the page.)
Freebies in Long Live the Queen are ones I use frequently: Queen Elizabeth I Necklace, Crystally Earrings, and Long Gloves. Non-freebies include the Crimson Throne Room, Jade Hair, Headpieces Vol 1, Wicked Collar, My Princess Gown with Belle of the Ball textures, Katie Elite texture, and a morph making use of Distinctive Features V4, SP4, Elite Ethnic Faces V4, Faerime, and Morphs ++. (I love my Kitchen Sink morphs!) Font is Warhorse BB.
The Long Gloves set is useful because women in historical times often covered their arms, yet most of the historical-themed gowns for V4 are short-sleeved. Very long gloves are a quick and easy workaround.
This is still a freebie theme I want to do, but currently I’m working on Easter/Spring and Cinco de Mayo freebies (the latter being a wee bit of a challenge.)
And just for the heck of it, another Kitchen Sink morph, this one for M4 — I was playing around with one of the overlays from AS’s
Sisterhood Skin V4 texture, to see how it looked on M4:
He’s the character from the knight in this post. Geraint uses Distinctive Features M4, H4, Elite Ethnic Faces M4, Morphus, and Morphs ++. He’s wearing one of Morris’ boys — probably
Alexandre; but maybe Angelo — along with Spartacos Short Hair and the Achaius Shirt.
Anyway, if you’re reading this post and have some favorite historical-related freebies, please let me know about them! Any figure is fine.
