Sweet As Sugar And Twice As Nice

Happy Tuesday FabFree Readers! Today I am going to be showing you an adorable outfit that you can find at NS:: Cutie for L$1! If you love cute things then this really is the outfit for you, it even includes the shoes! Hooray! You don’t have to be part of any group to pick this up at their mainstore, just click the poster and buy it for L$1! It says that it is a limited offer on the poster so don’t be too slow in going to get it in case it vanishes!

Thanks to the Cupcakes Anonymous Hunt I found some adorable nails by Ama that are pastel colours with some adorable little facial expressions drawn on them. Below you can see more of the options with a picture of the HUD. The sweet Pinku floral bracelet is from Cubic Cherry Kre-ations and is also part of the Cupcakes Hunt. Just a little word of caution that prizes in this hunt do cost L$5.

Today’s Top 10 Hunts

HUNT SL Fairy Tale HuntGood morning fabulous fans! Here’s a listing of what’s hot in the hunt world today: Tuesday, August 12.

There are lots of cool hunts going on. The Fairy Tale Hunt has jumped to the top of the list this week, with Dirty Diva holding the second spot, and the female path for Battle of the Sexes still making a strong showing. My partner and I have been planning on doing Kagami, but it’s rumored to be so popular that it’s hard to get in. I’m sure you can find a hunt that will give you hours of enjoyment.

Just a reminder, that these are the 10 most popular viewed hunts over the past 48 hours or so. We don’t know how many people actually start (or finish) any given hunt.

See you out on the hunt!

Guest Blog by Geoffrey Edwardstone – A Summer Trip Around the World

Guest Blog by Geoffrey Edwardstone – A Summer Trip Around the World, originally blogged [HERE].

The Around the Grid 2 Hunt is now in full swing with a long list of participating merchants.  It’s loosely based on the Jules Verne classic Around the World in 80 Days, and so is lasting a total of 80 days, through September 30.  This hunt is a little unconventional in that you won’t get the LM to the next store on the hunt when you find a prize; you have to use the LMs on the AGH2 website.  The other twist to the ARG hunt is that in addition to a $1L hunt prize, many of the stores also have a $25L Gatcha with hunt-themed gifts in them (the gatcha is optional for the merchants).  I won’t be showing you stuff from the Gatchas, but here’s some pictures of some of the fun $1L prizes you can get from the regular part of the hunt.

Not all the shops are adhering strictly to the historical aspect of  Around the World … but even those who are giving more modern prizes are sticking with the idea of summer travel.  I start out my summer trip in the Skull Pump Ride red and black roadster, the AGH2 prize from NR Designs.  It’s a drivable vehicle that comes equipped with some smoke and fire when you hit the accelerator.  And, man, can this baby fly!

NRDesigns_002Unfortunately, as you can see I ran this hot rod off the road, which means I’m going to have to walk until I find a place to get a tow.  I’m headed off in my mesh plaid cargo shorts and tee which I got as the AGH2 prize at Beautiful & Dangerous.

Beautiful&Dangerous_001

Finding it a little chilly up here in the northern mountains I whip out the mesh hoodie and t-shirt I scored from the AGH2 at Short Circuit.  It captures the around-the-world theme nicely with the world map on the front of the tee.

Short Circuit_001But what do you know?  Just down the road I come upon a cute little taxi, sitting around just waiting for me to drive it.  This Whimsy Taxi is the AGH2 gift from StoraxTree and is also drivable.  Since I’ll be back inside a car again, I can take off the hoodie and try out the Outer Banks shorts and tank top that I got as the AGH2 gift from Euphoria Couture.  Now if I can just manage to keep this taxi from running off the road …..

Hipster is, as Hipster does….whatever that means

Good evening Fabulouses!! Or morning, depending on where in the world you are :) Well, it is evening for me, and as I sit in my sweltering living room, I thought I would try to take my mind off of how much like a sauna my house will be with the heat wave my area is going to experience this week, by showing you my Hipster look.

CoffeeHouseHipster1

My look was completely inspired by the newest free, Reign group gift. The group was recently free to join for a short while, with the temptation of a free pair of shoes if they hit a certain number before closing up free entry. As a little thank you to all the new people who joined, as well to the current members who pushed, pulled and dragged everyone they knew to join, KenadeeCole, one of the owner’s/creator’s for Reign, sent out this cute little texture change Hello Hipster Necklace. You get a hud with 4 different colours to change the ‘Hello’ to, and I really like the simplicity of the design. If you hurry, and aren’t already in the group, I just checked, and, as of 10PM SLT (Monday), it’s still free to join.

CoffeeHouseHipster2

My next choice had to be glasses. No self-respecting hipster would be caught without their glasses on. While I have a few pairs in my inventory from days past when I always had glasses on, I wanted something new, and a little less sleek/modern. My favourite place to search, the Marketplace, did not let me down! The Mad Nerd Glasses, by Mad Mesh, were the first pair to pop up in my search, and lucky me, they were only L$9! Score! You get several different colours in both plain, and checkered versions, and even better, they are totally mod, so you can make them any colour you need.

Sticking with my accessories, I picked up these super adorable Hot and Cold Marshmallow earrings by Pink Acid at the current Candy Shop round, and for only L$50. Seriously, the expressions on their faces, so cute, though I do feel a little bad for the hot marshmallow, he doesn’t look like he is enjoying the heat at all. Kinda like me…LOL.

CoffeeHouseHipster3

I think, my favourite finds of my whole outfit though, are the * [BE]lieve – Black Urban Hipsta cat blazer with T-shirt, and * [BE]lieve – Hipster Studded Triangles Shorts. Both of these were finds on the Marketplace, with the Blazer- T-shirt combo setting me back a total of L$20, and the shorts were only L$10. How could I say no to either, especially when there is a cat print involved :P  Both pieces are mesh, coming in standard sizes, though I will warn you that I had to go up a size in the shorts, wearing a L instead of my usual M, but the L fits perfectly, and the M Blazer sits over the shorts without any part breaking through. I don’t know if the creator made these 2 to go together, but they work so well together, that it sure feels like it was meant to be. Love when that happens! Make sure you take a peek at all the other items from * [BE]lieve, as all their stuff is well priced, nothing over L$50, and great looking.

So, how do I look? Am I hipster enough? I am the type of person that I just wear what I like, not really paying attention to whether I fit into a certain group or not, and it works for me. Truthfully though, this look of mine is going to be saved and worn over and over, that is the sign of a great outfit. I hope you all agree :)

Until next time, TTFN *waves*

*sings* I Don’t Wanna be a Rock & Roll Zombieeeee!

Why is it that I seem to be drawn to sims where I get attacked? This time, it was Zombies…again! 
[10:31] Zombie bites Calleja Fairey.
Uh Oh….I guess I better get this post finished, just in case I end up turning into a Zombie myself.

Rock&RollZombies1

As you can see, if I do turn into a Zombie right now, I will be a pretty dang cool looking one! This is all thanks to the newest round of The OMG Room, Hair Fair, and Mock Cosmetics.

First up, my rock & roll inspired outfit from the newest round of The OMG Room, that just started. The GAIA ROCK HORROR SHOW COMPLET OUTFIT  is a L$1 gift from Brii Underground, and it has a bunch of stuff included in it, although I am only wearing a few of the pieces. The mesh shorts and mesh jacket/bra top combo come in the standard sizes. You will get a lovely shine with the jacket as it is materials enabled, and check out the great skull texture on the back in the next picture. The other pieces I am wearing that are included with this outfit is the kinda scary tattoo on my belly, as well as the gothic looking skull necklace. What I am not wearing from this is a pair of knee-high black mesh boots, a skull ring, a makeup layer which has eyeshadow and lipstick, and a second tattoo that is on the thighs. That tattoo is not pg, just a warning :P

Rock&RollZombiesCollage

To me, other than the crazy long hair all guys in rock bands in the 80’s had, nothing says rock more to me for hair than a mohawk, and lucky for me, Adoness has put out the asteria in plumify as a L$1 gift for the Hair Fair. This is a partial rigged mesh hairstyle, which is so convenient. You can modify the upper part of the hair to your heart’s content, while the long tail down the back is perfectly rigged to move with your av. It also comes with the bloom shaved hairbase, which I absolutely love The link I’ve provided is a direct TP to their shop at Hair Fair.

My last addition, while maybe not rock so much, is funky enough that it works. It is my lipstick that is a recent group gift from Mock Cosmetics. The [mock] Vitrail Lip Glass – Skittles comes with 3 versions of intensity, I am wearing the 2, which is the darkest. I love that Mock makeup layers are slightly translucent, so they are meant to work with your skins lips, not just be a solid layer over top of them, it means they look slightly different on everyone. The gift is free, but the group does have a L$250 join fee, but with as many gifts as I have received from this group, it is worth it.

Alright, I guess I better go lay down or something, wait and see if I turn. I sure hope not, there are way too many freebies and goodies in SL that I still have to show you all…..and I really don’t want to turn out like this guy.

Rock&RollZombies2

Cross your fingers for me, and until next time, when I hope to still be human, TTFN!!

Guest Blog by Geoffrey Edwardstone – Calling All Roleplayers – The Medieval Fantasy Hunt

A Guest Blog by Geoffrey Edwardstone – Originally blogged [HERE]

I have to admit I’m a sucker for historical stuff in SL and I always try to check out historically themed hunts.  The twelfth edition of the Medieval Fantasy Hunt (MFH XII) is running until the end of this month, and starts at the United Inshcon shop sim.  You can follow the hunt either by getting the LM to the next hunt stop from the previous store’s gift or you can used the list of SLURLs at the MFH XII hunt blog.  The blog also gives the hints for each stop in both English and German (with one stop just in German) which is an advantage when you come upon a stop where the hint giver isn’t set up.  There were 52 stops in the MFH XII hunts when it started but 7 have dropped out, leaving 45 offering either a unisex or both a male and female prize.  But despite the fact there are just 45 stops, many of the prizes are ingeniously hidden at a considerable distance from the landing spot and it will take you a bit of time if you want to do the entire hunt.

First off let me show you the Odhor black mesh warrior outfit gift from PeKaS (MFH XII #15).  It’s mesh and includes alternative tunics with the hood up or with the hood down.  This outfit also includes the shoulder cape and the back-carried shield.  But the sword I’m wielding is the Viking Sword MFH XII gift from Dwar Barbosa Weapons (MFH XII #34).  The gift includes a wearable sheathed version, and is scripted with drawing and sheathing animations as well as the standard fighting animations.7Pekas,DwarBarbosa, Feyline (#15,34,28)_001The rightmost panel in the picture above shows an entire medieval Bryce woodsman outfit, which is the male gift at Feyline Fashions (MFH XII #28).  In addition to all the clothing, the outfit includes the hat, boots, bow and arrow (unscripted), and thigh-carried hunting knife.

Moving on, I’ve changed outfits to show you the Mystical Fantasy male medieval outfit in blue from C&N Designs (MFH XII #27).  The tunic and pants are mesh, and the outfit comes with the belt and boots.  It’s an elegant outfit, so I’m wearing it as I relax on Her Majesty’s Wooden Bench, the gift from An Lema (MFH XII #25).  This gift includes the animated mesh bench with all those pillows, the rug, two plant stands, and a table with decor items on it.

2AnLema:C&N_MFH#25&27_001_001

And finally, this next picture shows you the Korin knight’s outfit, the male MFH XII gift from The Seamstress (MFH XII #37).  It doesn’t include the boots (those are the boots I showed you above), but it is a mighty fine looking outfit with a gold design on the red velvet and a gold neck chain. That pistol is the Pirate Pistol MFH gift from Designs by Isaura (MFH XII #12).  The gift includes a “holstered” version which has the pistol held at the waist with a golden sash.  The pistol does fire, but is not damage-enabled unless you stick your own scripts into it.

There’s a lot more good stuff out there on the Medieval Fantasy Hunt so I hope I’ve shown you enough that you’ll go out and find all that good stuff.

Dazed but not Confused

Waves hello! I was in a hippie/ganja/fantastical kind of mood the other night. I found some fabulous freebies to put together and show you. First up is this really cool hood from Spyralle called the Parchment Scroll Silk Hood with Enamel Brooch. It’s a free gift from the store. I snapped a couple of pics so you could see the brooch detail and the hood’s texture. My nice shades are a free gift from ChiChickie! You can find it right inside the store’s entrance. The hair style is also a free gift from Chichickie! It’s a subscribo gift called Ameris and this color is dark auburn; it comes with a universal HUD that allows color/texture/resize. The skin is a sale item ($50L) from .::WoW::. It’s the Taylor tan 03 and it comes in 6 versions. I am also wearing the “more freckles tattoo” included in the skin package.

I saw this beautiful coat at Spyralle when I was picking up my free hood and I HAD to have it! The texture is a fractal art design named the Lotus Seaglass.   I paid $200L for the coat but it was money well spent. I paired it with this partially free outfit from Allusions. The jeans are free and the top, Summer:Lake:S, cost me a whole $10L! It was a good day for me.

Sunset Beach Walk

Snapshot_001Good evening Fabulous readers!  I am enjoying a sunset walk at Baja Norte this evening in my new Hilly Halaan finds, doing my own personal kind of SL role play.   I may not be into gor or combat fighting, or the happy family thing, but I think tonight I am roleplaying that I can actually walk in a classy manner in these hella high heels… and in the sand no less!  Amazing.

My outfit today consists of three Hilly Halaan finds that are all available at The Cosmo Sales Room at very affordable prices.  The striped Strapless Maxi Dress is 55L, the short denim jacket is priced at 70L and these Mira Strap Sandals are available at 180L for a WHOLE FATPACK of awesome colours.  The Mira Strap Sandals are made for the Slink High Feet.

Don’t think I have forgotten this is a “freebie blog”!  because I do indeed have a freebie to share with you today ;)  The Damselfy Lizzie Hair is available at a free gift, priced at 0L in the Damselfy shop at The Manga Fair.  This gift includes a texture change hud with a bunch of great colours, so I am sure you’ll find your shade –  I found mine!
