My New Nerd Haven

Of all the posts I’ve done here at FabFree, this one is probably the most like me in RL. The truth is, I’m something of a nerd. So when I heard about the Geeks ‘n’ Nerds fair, you can bet that I rushed over and spent more than a few L’s – and this isn’t even everything! :-D

Blogging soon!

These great skinny jeans are a new gift from *COCO* Designs, and my sweater is a gift from Prim & Pixel (full credits for what I’m wearing are at the bottom of this post). The poster behind me is a Geeks ‘n’ Nerds gacha prize from Sari-Sari. Since nerds love to read, I’ve surrounded myself with tons of books. And I love my little “Potion Master” doll, which I got from the *~HopScotch*~* gacha at Geeks ‘n’ Nerds. Oh, the tray of goodies was the day 1 advent gift from Sway’s; you can no longer get it for free, but it is available for sale for 75L. If you aren’t doing this fun advent at Sway’s, you really should be! Uh oh, I think my dogs are about to devour my snack… bad dogs!

Chair – {what next} Cubby Armchair (200L for set of 2)

Poster - Sari-Sari OMG!!! Posters! Nerds (50L Gacha @ Geeks ‘n’ Nerds)

Giraffe – StoraxTree Native Giraffe Whimsy Brown Statue

Blogging soon!

This pretty skin is from a new-to-me store called {AIMI}. It is the current group gift (free to join), and will run you 1 whole Linden. It only comes in the tone and eyebrows as shown, but hey, 1L! My nails are a Slink HUD from *~*HopScotch*~*, which you can find at Geeks ‘n’ Nerds for 50L. Eight nerdy patterns are included. ;-)

Blogging soon!

I finally decorated my office space, and I’ll admit that it’s now my favorite space in the house. My desk (including clutter!) and the Eiffel Tower Marquee are both for sale at Collabor88, but since the current round is almost over, you’d better hurry!

Wall Hanging – Alouette Ctrl Alt Delete Key Rack (129L @ Geeks ‘n’ Nerds)

Lamp – floorplan. Eiffel Tower Marquee (188L @ Collabor88)

Easel – StoraxTree Artistic Endeavors Easel A

Blogging soon!

Another view of my new office. :-) The shelf and stuffs, as well as the Industrial Chandelier, are available at Collabor88. The surge protector under the desk is from Second Spaces at Geeks ‘n’ Nerds. There are two other versions that will make your virtual space look like a fire hazard with lots of wires sticking out (just like my RL office), but I thought they were a little excessive for the one lamp I have plugged in here. I’m sure I’ll find a place for them somewhere else, though! The Mayfair Trunk is a past VIP group gift from {what next}, and you can still find it in the VIP gift room.

NOTE: The Geeks ‘n’ Nerds event closes on December 8th, and new round of Collabor88 will be starting the same day. Hurry on over if you want any of the great stuffs at either of these events! Please also note that slurls to both an event and the store’s main location are provided in the credits; however, if you want an event item, you need to go there to get it while the event is in progress.

The Nymph

Blogging soon

The Fantasy Collective started on November 20th, and will be winding down to a close very soon. This month’s theme is The Woodlands, so all items at the event have something to do with this genre. Before it ends, I wanted to show you this gorgeous dress, The Nymph, by *{Junbug}*. The dress comes in 3 different colors, and ties with a lovely bow at the neck in the back. I know, I know; it’s not free, or even 75L, but the texturing is simply exquisite, and I couldn’t help myself. My headdress and choker can be found in the 40L Wild Wood Gacha, with 4 different headdresses – including the one I’m wearing – offered as “rares.”

The Black Event: .:pure:.

Blogging soon!

Good evening, Fabulouses! As you’ve already seen many times here at FabFree, The Black Event is in full swing at The Wash! I’ve got some sexy, black goodies for you tonight from the .:pure:. cart. This Raven Gown is cut waaaay down to *there* in the back, perfect for heating up a cold, winter night. ;-)

.:pure:. Raven Black Lace Gown (50L @ The Black Event)

Blogging soon!
If Steampunk is more your thing, check out this Bessy Jacket and Pants outfit. It comes with the mesh jacket with tails, as well as two pairs of pants, one red and one black.

.:pure:. Bessy Steampunk Jacket and Pants (10L @ The Black Event)

My graphics card was coughing and sputtering by the time I took this photo (Firestorm beta – yikes!), so I apologize that it is a bit pixelated. But I can vouch that this Veronica Dress is really quite pretty, and I think you can still see the delicate detailing, despite the too-big pixels.

.:pure:. Veronica Dress Black Vines (10L @ The Black Event)

Blogging soon!

This Diana Turtleneck Dress is my favorite of the bunch, and I’ve been wearing it all over SL today. The texturing is quite good, and I love that you can dress it down with boots, or dress it up with a fancy pair of your favorite heels! I’ve paired it with  the brand-new Harvest boots from *~*HopScotch*~*, which you can find on sale for 95L at the current round of My Attic. Eight different colors are available. One reason I’m sweating it with Firestorm Beta is because I want to see items that are materials enabled; you can see here what they look like with the graphics cranked up to 11. ;-)

A quick note about these Royalty Tights by ~Cannibelle~. You get six different colors in this pack, and you can wear them with or without your Slink feet; appliers are included, as well as tattoo/sock layers for each. I thought that was a pretty good deal for 95L! If you’d like to try out a pair of ~Cannibelle~ tights, check out Love’s post here, and pick up a free pair of November Rain tights at the current round of Acid Lily.

Finally, this cool, polka dot rug can be found at the Potpourri Designs cart at The Black Event. I’ll have more from them in a later post, as well as a couple of decor items available at the .:pure:. cart not shown here. And last but not least, the French plates on the wall behind me and the I Love You canvas are both dollarbies from floorplan. There are quite a few other decor items set out at floorplan. for either 0L or 1L, so be sure you check them out… and don’t miss all the books on the counter!

Too Sleepy in Ginger

Blogging soon!

First, let me begin with an apology, and by telling you that I’m 40L over budget in this post. :oops: I’ve been battling a nasty case of insomnia for several nights, and it’s seriously making me loopy! I wandered over to !Rebel Hope Designs a couple of days ago, and saw this gorgeous Ginger Special Edition Fall Gown on an easel outside the shop. I absent-mindedly clicked on it, thinking, “Wow, what an amazing free gift this is!” Well… I was half right. It truly is amazing, but free… it is not. When I went back tonight to make sure it was still available, I discovered the gown is actually 50L – DOH! <me/facepalm> That’ll teach me to shop on virtually no sleep! But even at 50L, this is one beautiful dress, sure to make you the hit of your Thanksgiving gathering or other fall event! It also comes with a matching clutch purse, which, of course, I forgot to show you. …sighs…

Blogging soon!

Thankfully, I did get these two items right. The huge rock on my finger is also from !Rebel Hope Designs, and really IS free (I checked)! It’s got a little fall leaf on it, and is perfect for your autumn proposal, guys (hint, hint). ;-) Look for the gift box outside the store, next to the Ginger gown. Also free are my earrings, which you can find in a gift box at Virtual Impressions.

I’m off to drink some warm milk, watch a really boring TV show, and pray for sleep before I injure my self or others… sweet dreams!

Flowers and Candy

Where I live in RL, we basically have 3 seasons: winter, spring, and October. For some reason, summer never shows up during, well, summer, but instead creeps in during October. And it’s not the good kind of summer, where the days are long and hot, and the nights are warm. It’s more of what people call “Indian Summer” (and I have no idea why), where the days are warm and breezy, nights are cool, and the sun goes down way too early. Since we were mostly denied a real summer this year, I’m still trying to hang on to what I can of summer in SL. So here I am, out on the boardwalk, enjoying a cotton candy. Ah… just a little bit longer, please.

Blogging soon

My jeans and vest are the latest group gift from Tres Beau Designs. Perfect for a pretend, summer afternoon. My sunflower necklace is a free gift from *HopScotch*, which you’ll find in a box at the desk. Love showed it a loooong time ago, but it’s still available, still free, and I thought it looked cute with my FREE sunflower sandals, which are a subscribo gift from *HopScotch*. New subscribers will receive the gift automatically when you subscribe; current subscribers should hit the “previous notices” box and select #5 and Deliver. My cotton candy pose is not free, but is one of a set of 5 poses by *HopScotch* for The Candy Fair. Xanthe showed you some Candy Fair gifts yesterday. Tomorrow, October 18th, is the last day of The Candy Fair, so hurry on over if you want to check out the sweet goodness! ;-)

Prowler

So, Love told me about this “great party” happening last night at a haunted house. I should have known better when she said she couldn’t go. I got all dressed up, only to find that no one LIVING was there – although there were plenty of UNDEAD – and I wind up running through the forest with the biggest spider I’ve ever seen on my shoulder! Hey Love, next time, YOU go with me to the “great party!” I’m never going alone ever again! 8-O

I might be running scared, but at least I look good! My dress is Prowler, the October group gift from Total Eclipse Couture. The group is only 10L to join, and there’s also a gift out for the fellas, so head on over! My boots are one of the latest group gifts from Baby Monkey, and come in 8 boot colors and 5 heel colors. My necklace and earrings by Maxi Gossamer are not free, but are only 188L at the October round of Collabor88. They come in 3 different metal colors.

How pretty is this skin, right? Last night, I was tp’ing around looking for a particular store, and I somehow managed to pop into new-to-me skin store ::Bite & Claw::. And I found this lovely skin for 0L in a gift box on the coffee table! It comes in 2 skin tones with matching mesh feet, Lola’s appliers, 4 cleavage options, and freckles.

Now to find a party with LIVING people! :lol:

Feeling the Effect of Autumn

Hello Fabulouses! I’m leaving on RL business for the rest of this week, but before I go, I wanted to share a quick look with you. My dress is the October group gift from Sascha’s Designs. Sascha’s is 100L to join, but there is a new, gorgeous dress offered as a group gift every month, and often petite sizes are included. Oh, and my pose is another in the pack from HopScotch available at the Poser Pavilion.

This dainty, leaf necklace is The Autumn Effect Hunt gift from Atooly. TAEH lasts until October 15th, and all prizes are free (0L). You’ll be looking for a little, wooden disk with an autumn leaf on it.

Have a wonderful first week of October, and I’ll see you next week! :-)

Une Bonne Femme

Blogging soon

If I could go back in time, I would love to head back to the Victorian period and try on some of those great dresses. But since I don’t have a time machine, at least I can try on some fabulous Victorian dresses in SL, instead! Like this one, for instance: Une Bonne Femme (A Good Woman) which is the autumn group gift from Montagne Noire. I love all the details, especially the hat and the big bow on the bustle. :-)

My earrings have been shown bunches of times before by various FabFree bloggers including myself, but are worth another look. They’re part of a gorgeous set by Dark Mouse that you can find as a gift at FabFree Headquarters. My pose isn’t free, but is part of a lovely set of 8 poses by HopScotch available at the current round of Poser Pavilion.

Last Chance for The Wash Cart Sale: Fab-Fae!

First, I want to apologize for the quick, scatterbrained post today. But due to real-life demands, and the complete lack of cooperation between my computer and SL, I was only able to crank out these 2 quick photos. :-( I really wanted to let you know that today is the LAST DAY of The Wash Cart Sale, and show you some of the cuteness at the Fab-Fae cart!

Blogging soon

Fab-Fae Teal Suede Blouse (10L @ The Wash Cart Sale)

Fab-Fae Flora Mini Dress Blueberry (10L @ The Wash Cart Sale)

This is by no means everything available at the Fab-Fae cart. The Flora dress is also available in chocolate, there are several other cute tops for sale, and even a couple of dresses for petites – all for only 10L each! You’ve got just a few more hours to head over and check out the great stuff at The Wash Cart Sale, so don’t miss out!

A couple of other notes: the gorgeous Chop Zuey jewelry I’m wearing was previously shown here by Care. She’s showing a bit more than jewelry in this post, so be sure to sneak a peek! ;-) My eyes are the current IKON group gift, which Xanthe showed here. My poses are part of the September gift pack from Diesel Works, which Care showed not long ago here. Great minds think alike, eh? Finally, my shoes are not free, but are super cute! They’re by *HopScotch* for your Slink Mesh Feet, and currently available at My Attic for only 95L. 8 colors are available! :-)

Twisted at DEADPOOL

Welcome to II .DEADPOOL. II, a place where “zombies roam the overgrown and wistful spaces of a forgotten amusement park.” Seriously, there are zombies everywhere. Thankfully, they’re not very fast, and they’re not very smart, so I felt pretty safe stopping to snap a few photos.

Blogging soon

This zombie/carnival atmosphere was the perfect place to show you these fabulous gifts from B!ASTA for the Twisted Hunt Fall 2013 (THF13). The Twisted Hunt runs until September 30th, and all items are 0L. And at B!ASTA, there’s a mini Hunt-in-a-Hunt going on as a little extra fun for Twisted Hunters. They’ve hidden 10 decoy boxes with hints inside them – each one leads you to the next box, and in the end you will find the 11th box which is the main prize. And three extra goodies are hidden inside the decoy boxes. You need to find them all in order to get the complete outfit! :-D

This awesome Black Magic Corset Dress is the main hunt prize. It comes in five mesh sizes, and has an attachment of “glowing, bloody hair.” These sky-high stiletto heels are one of the bonus prizes; there’s a HUD to match your skin and change your nail color.

Blogging soon

Two other bonus gifts for you: these mesh stiletto nails (for regular hands) and this face tattoo (unisex). So head over to B!ASTA and get twisted finding these great gifts! Be sure to look around – there are several other non-twisted gifts in the store, as well as four lucky boards upstairs.

Uh oh, I think that zombie back there finally noticed me. Gotta run… zombies hate fast food! ;-)
