Show Some Skin!

Stix Hera

Happy Free Skin Day! It’s like Christmas has come early on the Fab Free blog today, and I’m so excited to be part of the fun. Anyone who says there aren’t any good free skins to be had in Second Life just hasn’t looked hard enough. The good news is the Fab Free team has gone and done a ton of looking, and we found some amazing skins. I sincerely hope you enjoy the skins I have to share with you.

This first skin is a brand new group gift out at Stix. The first word I thought of when I saw this skin was “fierce”. I just love the exotic look to this skin, and the dark tone is gorgeous. The PixyStix group is FREE to join making this a completely FREE gift, just wear your group tag. Aside from being stunning, this great skin comes with every applier available for the Stix skins. The list of appliers is extensive, and includes body appliers, hands and feet appliers, mesh head appliers, and more!

The Skinnery Estee

Equally fierce and beautiful is this group gift from The Skinnery. The makeup that is part of this Catwa head applier from The Skinnery gives the skin an added allure that made me want to wear it all the time. It reminded me of a gypsy princess or an amazon warrior. The beautifully unique look could be perfect for any number of role play genres, past, present, or futuristic. If you wear any of the Catwa heads, this gift is for you. The gift includes a base skin, but the applier has all the details. Additional body appliers are sold separately. The Skinnery group has a one time join fee of 150 linden.

Lara Hurley Jade

Go from exotic to vampy with this darkly beautiful skin from Lara Hurley. The combination of the pretty pale skin tone with the dark smokey purple eye-shadow made me think of gothic romance. I could imagine being all decked out in gothic or steam-punk Victorian attire while wearing  this lovely skin. This FREE group gift is meant for Catwa mesh heads. The gift includes the Catwa head applier only in the “milky” tone. There are additional appliers available for sale at Lara Hurley. The Lara Hurley group is also FREE to join.

Swallow Natalie

If you’re wanting an applier for your Catwa mesh head with more of a traditional makeup, but just as pretty, Swallow has what you’re after. I think the pretty plum colored lips and rosey cheeks are perfect for winter and could easily match most outfits, formal or casual. This Catwa applier is available at Swallow for free with your Swallow group tag. The Swallow group is just 30 lindens to join. The gift includes a Catwa applier only, however you can buy appliers separately.

Lumae Cocoa

This incredibly beautiful set of skins is the most recent FREE group gift at Lumae. The gift includes every skin tone available, each with all the appliers Lumae offers for their skins. In addition to the appliers, and base skins, each tone has brow, freckle, and cleavage options. I love how versatile this skin is with all the options and appliers. There are appliers for mesh bodies, mesh heads, hands and feet, and many many more. The gorgeous makeup is well suited for every-day looks as well as fantasy. These dark lips reminiscent of ’90s grunge fashion are so in right now! You really cannot go wrong with this skin. The Lumae group is currently FREE to join, so definitely take advantage of this generous gift!

MudSkin May

Another FREE group gift skin with several skin tone options is this one from MudSkin. This gift includes all the shown tones in a base skin, each with 3 brow variations. There are no appliers included. I love skins like this one for every day wear because of the pretty colored cheeks, thin liner, and the subtle lip-color. This particular skin is also great if you like to wear makeup tattoo layers. The naturally beautiful look to the makeup makes it easy to add other layers. The MudSkin group is FREE to join at this time, so don’t hesitate to snatch this gift up while it is still available.

Frick Fathom Witch

Lastly, this older FREE gift available at Frick is perfect for role play. I think it’s fun, it’s quirky, and who doesn’t want a green skin once in a while?! I could spend hours dressing up this skin. Though the skin is labeled as a “witch”, I think it could easily be any number of fantastical creatures from elves and fairies, to ogres and gremlins. This fun FREE gift includes the base skin as well as appliers for Slink Hands and Feet. There’s no need to join a group for this one, just head upstairs at the Frick main store (located outside the shop to the right) and grab this playful fantasy skin.

Still Time to Get to Know You This Fall

There is still some fall left in the air, with two days of November left to celebrate before we march into those cold December days. Autumn has always been my favorite season. Sure winter is lovely, but you just can’t beat fall colors in my mind!

Getting to Know You This Fall 1

I wanted to share a few special gifts with you to round out my November Sunday posts. Last Sunday I showed you a spectacular FREE throne by Daffy’s GadgetMania in my post HERE and I mentioned that it was one of three gifts in their offerings for the Get to Know Us Hunt. The Hunt ends November 30th, so it’s not to late to enjoy this fabulous little hunt, but you will want to hurry!

This week I wanted to show you Daffy’s GadgetMania‘s softer side! So I set my pictures inside their Royal Garden Park, which is another of the three FREE hunt gifts. Just as a quick reminder… if haunted houses or disturbing images are too much for you, skip this store on your hunt stops. The hunt to get the gift is a series of clues and steps that can be a bit overwhelming if these types of visuals are more than you can handle.

Also pictured above is the November gift from Shoenique Designs. It is completely FREE with your group tag and the group is FREE to join. Considering that the gift is set along an entire wall of other FREE gifts, you won’t want to pass up this lovely fall wrap style dress! It comes in fitmesh and is perfect for a lady’s day in the park!

Getting to Know You This Fall 2

The Get to Know Us Hunt was small but cozy. It only has ten stops, but each one is really worth it. I also dropped by AmAzInNg CrEaTiOnS to pick up their offering in the Hunt. They put out one box which contained two gifts. Above, Astrid is sporting the Roll Neck Dress 23, which is great for those cool autumn evenings in the park. The other prize is equally gorgeous! You’ll want to grab this FREE goodie bag from this great creator!

Getting to Know You This Fall 3

I wanted to round out my fall look with a reminder that spring would be back… and I wasn’t done with my hunting either. Gachapon! had just the thing to chase away my impending winter blues with their gift for The Get to Know Us Hunt in the form of Lucky Lady Bug Rings! Once you find the FREE hunt gift you’ll be lucky enough to discover that there are nine rings in the box in nine different colors, though I am only showing you the black and the white in the picture above.

Happy fall and happy hunting!

Win with impatience!

Happy Saturday everyone! Sorry I’ve been absent this week so far, I’ve been having computer issues. Granted, it’s my own fault, I’m so impatient! My brother is the one who takes care of my computer for me, and I thought it would be smart to do an upgrade on my own as I didn’t want to wait for him to get home. Lots of head shaking and sighs in my direction later, he has fixed my computer for me, well, at least enough that I can be here with you all. I can’t help it, I hate waiting around!!

somniaLB_006

That makes a perfect segue into what I am here to show you today! Lucky boards….I love them, but hate the waiting around! Those of you that are familiar with Somnia, know that this is the perfect place to go to get your lucky board fix, without having to wait around forever! On the second level of the store, there are a whole whack load of lucky boards, with super short timers. Seriously, I just need to stand around there for about 5 minutes, and can leave with a bunch of new items in my inventory. Each board has 1 clothing item, in a variety of colours, to win for free, ranging from dresses, to t-shirts, sweaters and skirts.. I’ve decided to show off the Boffle sweater set, and the Zhevios pants. I managed to win the pants in 3 colours, brown, peach and ice. The Boffle set, I won in 2 colours, ice and rose. Each piece is mesh, in the standard sizes. They combine to make such a nice, casual, yet well put together outfit!

Like the pretty skin I am wearing? While searching around for the skins I will be showing off on Dec 1 for FabFree’s first ever free skin day, I found a skin that didn’t quite make the L$10 or less guidelines we were all following. It is still a great deal though, at only L$20, from Curves, this skin comes in a cleavage and no cleavage version, with appliers for Lola’s, Phat Azz, WowMeh, and SLink hands and feet. The lovely reddish brows even made me go ginger! This skin, along with many others, some for guys too, is on a table by the group join. Stay tuned for my skin post on Dec 1 to see the free skins I grabbed from there.

somniaLB_007

OK lovelies. I must be off, by brother is looking to do the final fix on my computer for me, and he has the same type of patience I do, which means I need to hand it over. LOL. Until next time, TTFN!

Leftover Turkey!

I’m back today with a few more ‘leftover’ Hunts to enjoy.

leftover

First up is the 1L Jerky Turkey Hunt and the ‘Tessa” dress from TSR Designs. There are a ton of Hunts going on at TSR so prepare to spend some time. Plus there are group gifts and Gachas to check out.

From a jerky to a dirty. Next is the “Twila brown tweed Peacoat” from Bodhi and it’s the FREE prize for the Dirty Turkey Hunt. This is one of those things in SL that I kinda wish I had in RL. The details are spot on and I love the fall tweed look.

My pretty leaf swirly poses are also part of the Dirty Turkey Hunt. These are from Juxtapose and include the leaves props. The leaves actually slowly swirl around you as you pose. Juxatpose has generously placed both a ladies three pose set and a men’s three pose set in the prize for the Hunt.

Both the Jerky Turkey Hunt and the Dirty Turkey Hunt run until November 30th so don’t delay!

 

P.S.  Do you remember my shoes from here? They are still available from Lindy Modern and Retro Shoes in the Leaves are Falling Hunt for 1L until November 30th!

Warm Holidays

Happy Thanksgiving, FabFree-ers! I hope all of y’all who celebrate had a great day full of friends, family and fantastic food!

Warm Holidays

After a little nap to work off that turkey, I took to the Grid for a little hunting. Our Fall hunts are winding down but there’s still a few days to grab up al the awesome prizes out there. I re-visited the Warm Socks Hunt 2 today to pickup this cute casual knit dress from Vertigo. This is ‘Yosa’ and it can become a very versatile part of your wardrobe for FREE. Not only does it come a bunch of preset colors on the HUD but it also comes with a color picker. You can literally make this dress any color you want!

That’s how I got the dress to perfectly match my new ‘Fur Top Snow Boots’ from Duh! I grabbed these cute boots for FREE too with my Second Life Frees & Offers group tag. The gift comes with the pink ones here and a purple set as well.

Warm Holidays

Topping off my new look is one of two new Group Gifts from no.match. This is ‘no.country’ a nice long casual unisex style. It comes with both a men’s and a women’s version in the gift. Usually the group gifts have a special five color HUD but no.country comes as a full fat pack!

Warm Holidays

The Warm Socks Hunt 2 runs until November 30th so you have a couple of days left to get your Hunt on. However, the SLF&O items can come and come pretty quickly. So, if you need these boots hurry over to Duh! and grab them.
