Fab Changes

Hey Fabulous Readers!  I bring news to you today of a few changes, and some exciting news.  Grab a coffee, this could take a while because I’m feeling kind of chatty!

After talking to the bloggers, reading the input from readers and taking into account the poll results, we have come to make a few changes here at Fabfree.  As you can see from the poll results, it was a fairly even three way split, so I am aware we won’t be pleasing everyone, but we are doing our best to compromise and come up with solutions 😉

As of today, Fabfree now considers free to be FREE…  Meaning if you can obtain an item without spending a linden – it’s free.  If you have to pay 10L for an item, or you have to pay 100L to join a group, it isn’t really free.  Sure…  It’s a great deal, and we will still write about them, but we aren’t considering them to be “free”.  We also see the need to support the creators of Second Life by showing items that generate income for them, so that they can continue to design and prosper.

Our blog theme is “Fabulously Free in SL” and we will continue to focus our findings on fabulous free items, however we also will be featuring items under 75L.  With this, we are launching a new crediting system, that all of us bloggers here at FabFree will adapt to, so that you will be able to recognize the routine and easily find the items you are looking for.

* Items that are 100% free will be bolded and red.
* Items that are group gifts with join fees are bolded and black.

Eg.

******************

Skin- Mirror’s Enigma Freya (sneak peak – soon to be released)
Eyes – IKON Ardent Eyes Clarity
Hair – Mina Carlijn (95L @ The Attic)
Hands – Slink Mesh Hands
Nail Applier – Flair Nail Hud Add-On – Slink Avatar Enhancement – Set 177 (free subscribe gift / 0L @ The Attic)
Sweater – xX The Second Star Wonderland Sweater (free group gift / 0L / free to join) 
Tights – Cannibelle Angel Wings Tights Light (70L @ Acid Lily)
Shoes – *COCO* Belted Ankle Boots (free group gift / 0L / free to join)
 Necklace – Sweet Leonard Winterland Necklace (free group gift / 0L / 80L to join)
Pose by Kirin
Sim – Izzie’s

******************

Please be patient with us while we all learn the new system!

Now, that I have all of that out of the way…  I have some really fun, exciting news.   As of December 1st, Fabfree will now be hosting Semi-Monthly Challenges!  On the 1st and 15th of each month a new challenge will be released.  It was initially intended to challenge us FabFree bloggers and add a little fun to our posts, however it was suggested to me that we open it up and allow the whole grid to participate!  What a fun idea 😉  There will be a dedicated Flickr group for participants to place their photos in, as well as they will be able to link their posts in the comments of the that challenge post.  On the last day of the challenge, a winner will be selected from the outside entries, by our team of bloggers and will be featured as “The FabFree Challenge Champion” on the FabFree Blog.

I can hardly wait to release the first challenge!  You can find it here, on the blog – December 1st!

Another thing that FabFree has in the works is “Fab Advice”!  This idea came to me from a reader and at first, I thought.. “What?  That is so not what we do” lol, but after thinking about it for a while I think it might be fun.  How it will work is, people will send a notecard to me (names will be kept private) with a problem whether it be fashion, personal or whatever, and all of us bloggers will have a chance to weigh in with a positive response.   More information will be released about this very soon!

Thank you again to everyone that contributed to our decision making process via the poll, comments, IM’s and notecards.  Your input is very much appreciated 😉

Love Trill

The Black Event: Fab-Fae for Men + Makeover Your Bod!

Blogging soon!

Hey Fab Readers! I’ve got some great freebies and deals for you fellas today. I’ll start with my comfy sweater, which you can pick up for only 10L from the Fab-Fae cart at The Black Event. Standard mesh sizes… you know the drill. While looking for a new pair of jeans, I stumbled across these terrific Mesh Jeans from Ducknipple. They were 195L… but before you get all mad at me, consider this: they come in 3 different styles – tight, normal, and bootcut, which I’m wearing here – and they are HUD-controlled with 8 different textures. You get 4 colors in both “clean” and “dirty” versions (that’s dirty with dirt on them… not an “adult” version, if that’s what you’re thinking!). And the texturing is awesome! So… if my math is right, that would be 24 different pairs of jeans… which works out to less than 9L per pair. Not a bad deal, if you ask me! 🙂

Fab-Fae Two Shades of Grey Roll Neck Sweater (10L @ The Black Event)

Blogging soon!

Need a new skin and/or shape? Then you DO NOT want to miss this amazing group gift from Mr.Bloch. This youthful Danny skin comes in 10 different tones, and includes a shape, which I’m wearing here. But don’t delay! I missed last month’s gift because I didn’t get to the store quickly enough, so go… NOW! Best part: the Mr.Bloch group is FREE to join! My eyes are a free gift from Mayfly, no group required. You can find them on the back wall under the “NEW Luminous Eyes” sign. Don’t forget to pick up the Dark Olive group gift eyes while you’re there. Finally, this shirt with the great camo texturing is another deal from the Fab-Fae cart at The Black Event.

Fab-Fae Grey Camo Long Sleeve Loose Shirt (10L @ The Black Event)

Blogging soon!

What else do you need with your new skin, shape, and eyes? Hair, of course! You can pick up this cool 2-color hair from Uncleweb Studio (a.k.a. uw.st) by joining the free group at the front of the store. 5 different versions/colors are in the box. This is a 2012 group gift, but it’s still available, so get yours while you can. And you can dress your new bod in this Commando shirt from the Fab-Fae cart for just 10L.

There you go, guys. A whole new you! 🙂

I’m feeling a bit “Dystorted”

BlogPost_128A

Hey there Fabulous ones,

Last night I tapped the Midnight Mania board over at .:Dystorted:. and when I logged in today there was my new cute little outfit… *yay and stuff* This comes with the shirt and the skirt with their five mesh sizes for each.  I did notice that the standards that they use do run a bit small, so where as I’m normally a small… I had to wear a medium.  I also stopped by The Wash and picked up some jewelry off of Aidoru’s cart there at the Black Event.
