A little trick-or-treating with Skel-Calle, at Havenhollow.

BOO!

Did I scare you? I’m sorry if I did. Honestly, I am just trying to un-scare myself, and what better way to do that then to scare all of you Fabbies. You see, I decided to go trick-or-treating early, and ended up falling through a trap door in the woods, into a maze-like dungeon that I barely escaped, only to stumble out into a graveyard…where it was raining! I know right. The things you go through to get a little candy, but they told me the house giving away the biggest chocolate bar was in there. Luckily for me, and for you bargain lovers, I had put my costume together with a great freebie, and cheapie, and looked great while all of this was going on.

First of all, I know you are eyeing up my cute dress and tights. Those of you familiar with G Field, know that every Halloween, there is always a fun outfit put out as a free gift, and my skeleton bib dress and matching tights are what you can get this year. The dress is mesh, in the standard sizes, and also comes with flat chested versions. The tights are on system layers, as well as having an applier hud included for SLink and Maitreya. If you are in the G Field subscribo group, you probably already have this in your inventory, however, if you aren’t, or your IM’s capped (like mine did) you can head over to the store, and there is a nice little display with this gift, for free, for everyone, as well as past Halloween outfits, also still free.

Wanting to add a little more red to my almost monotone costume, I lucked out while wandering around the The Nightmare Event, when I found the Alice Project’s booth. They have gory Halloween versions of  5 of their  hairs. For a small L$50, you will get a limited 5 colour pack of your choice of these now blood-soaked Halloween Massacre versions. I went with the sweet ponitailed Kumi, totally turned creepy with the blood. If blood is not what you are looking for, they do have the nice clean versions of all of the same hairs there for you too, set at their usual price. But come on…how can you say no to blood soaked hair in October! LOL.

Now, I did mention that before my scary ordeal,  I had started out trick-or-treating. The cute candy bucket I am holding, as well as the handy flashlight, are both free gifts from this years Havenhollow set up. It’s a fun little neighbourhood for kids and adults of all ages where you can go door to door and if you are lucky, the kind residents will give you candy, and this year, it is actually hosted on an LEA sim, which is Linden Endowment for the Arts (hooray for that). Just beware of the cute, costumed, little girl by the entrance to the woods, she is the one to give you the flashlight so you can venture into the darkness, and then you know what happens…trap door, dungeon…yeah…scare fest! As this is an all ages sim, the candy bucket and flashlight both come in multiple sizes, so they should fit most hands. This build only sticks around for the Halloween season, and then it will be gone for another year. So set your windlight to region default, turn up your sounds, and explore!

OK, I think I have managed to come down from my scare, the candy from trick-or-treating has helped, I won’t lie. LOL. So that is it for me for now, but you know I will be back, I can’t stay away from all of you…or the great freebies and deals. So, until the next time, TTFN!

PS: I just wanted to personally say, thank you to all of the FabFree family who made it known that they wanted FabFree to stick around by showing all of us so much love. I love being able to share the fun of bargain hunting with all of you, and was so excited when the decision was made to keep the FabFree blog open. Here’s to many more years of freebies and deals in SL!

Rose Red

I’m sure you can all imagine how giddy I am that my favorite blog in SL isn’t closing it’s doors. And that has given me a nice little burst of energy to go out and find me some bargains!

First up is this sassy red number from Sentinus. This is the Jenna Red shirt and skirt and they are one of the new FREE Group Gifts up right now. The skirt and shirt are separates so of course, that makes them nice and versatile. I like the skirt’s almost ‘cheerleader’ look and who doesn’t like a smexy little cheerleader skirt?

Next is another pair of gorgeous eyes from Mayfly. These are ‘Tropical Sea’ and they are the FREE Group Gift. If you haven’t tried out Mayfly‘s  new HUD for the mesh eyes you are missing out. The HUD is super easy to use and you can really customize your eyes to be exactly right. You can turn on shadows, glow, position them … everything. Plus the eyes come with four steps of shades for the whites.

As with all Group Gifts, these are out as of now but could come down anytime. So if ya like ’em go grab ’em!

Now Go Do That Voodoo, That You Do So Well!

whcdbl voodoo 1_001

The best way to get a feel for a city is by moonlight. During the hustle of the day, most cities take on a similar hum with the activity of commerce. It is a din that drowns out all else. With the quiet of nightfall, you can feel the beating of each city’s unique heart. New Orleans, steeped in dark magical power, is one of my favorite cities (okay, and maybe it’s round-the-clock partying has something to do with that!).

What better place to be a Voodoo King than the city of New Orleans? Dressed By Lexi has long been a favorite store of some of the women I know. Honestly, I hadn’t been to the store lately so when a friend told me I HAD to check it out, I jumped at the chance to visit. This month, Dressed By Lexi has been putting Halloween costumes on sale for 55L every week! This week, I am wearing the Mesh Voodoo King costume. It consists of two main pieces and a bunch of goodies tossed in to sweeten the deal. The black trousers come in seven sizes and are tattered where the cuffs would be. The Voodoo King Vest comes in five sizes and, while also dark, is rich in color and pattern making it quite fetching. That wide range of sizes does a great job of taking care of any fit issues. The costume doesn’t end there though; it includes some fun goodies too! The Voodoo King Staff and the face paint mask comprise an extremely scary looking pair of accessories. Add to them the necklace, top hat, and sandals (for regular avy feet) and you get a lot for the money! I saved the best detail for last: Dressed By Lexi makes their costumes for couples! So, if you are looking to go out for a romantic date wearing matching Halloween costumes, they have you covered. In fact, they are so thoughtful, the outfits are transfer enabled!

Hurry over to Dressed By Lexi to pick up the Voodoo King today, because the 55L Thursdays Sale items change every week. Of course, that’s actually good news if you collect great costumes like I do. I, for one, have a date to go dancing with my beautiful editor Andi wearing last week’s sale costumes: Tarzan and Jane. I can think of no better way to celebrate the continuing of Fab Free than to celebrate with someone who has tirelessly given her time to make me seem smarter than I really am. Have fun everyone and see you on the grid!—–WHC Riler
