Free Spirit

Snapshot_002Good evening Fabulouses!  Petite Mort‘s new three piece group gift may have inspired a free spirited decision to take a spare of the moment road trip to a music festival, but it sure didn’t inspire me to check the oil or directions first before I left!  Some people thrive in free spirit mode, while others need structure and planning lol.  I may have to just “look” free spirited today and turn on the radio… if it still works!

When you join the inworld group at Petite Mort for 75L, you gain access to a wall full of free group gifts including the latest addition Free Spirit Outfit that includes the Crop Top, Shorts and Flip Flops.

Black is My Favorite Color

Black is My Favorite ColorHello Fab Free’rs! I hope you’re having a great week so far. I got back Monday evening from a long weekend visiting family, and as much as I loved seeing everyone, I’m still bushed! lol Thankfully I was able to steal a little time to myself today and share with all the Fabulous Readers some great freebie finds. Bargain hunting always makes me feel better!

Starting from top to bottom, this cute chin-length bob hairstyle with bangs is a FREE group gift at YumYum. Technically it was the May 2016 gift, but it’s still available and still adorable. This gift includes a color-change hud with 3 options. All 3 colors have this same dark-blonde/light-brown base color with a blue, purple (shown), or pink color dye at the ends. The hud also allows you to resize the hair to best fit your head shape. The YumYum store group is FREE to join as well! I’d run over to YumYum and pick this one up while it’s still available.

Next, I felt like this FREE dress by Apple May Designs at The Free Dove was a great transition piece for the changing season. It is short and cute like a summer dress, with half sleeves and a pretty textured black material perfect for fall. Not to mention, I think this casual black dress could be easily dressed up or down, and worn with just about any shoe style you wanted. You’ll find this dress strait back on the wall at Free Dove. The dress comes n standard mesh sizes with a matching alpha.

Finally, this bold mandala style leg tattoo is a FREE group gift at Reckless. There are actually several FREE group gifts at Reckless currently, but I liked how this one looked with the AMD dress the best. This beautiful tattoo comes with an applier hud that works for Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza bodies, a second hud for TMP bodies, and classic system layers. There’s also an option for fresh or faded versions of the tattoo. The Reckless group is 100 lindens to join, making this detailed tattoo a steal! Don’t forget to check out the other gifts while you’re there!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Home From Work

Home From Work

When I saw that there was a hunt dedicated to work, working, and various jobs, I was really thrilled on a number of levels. I know that often there are contests in Second Life where you dress up to fit various themes of employment, but also I felt that this was a great opportunity for Second Life designers to show solidarity for unsung heroes. I was not disappointed. The hunt was full of wonderful things to celebrate jobs of all walks of life.

In the end, I decided to showcase this 1L nurse’s uniform from Blade & Rain. It is a one-piece mesh outfit that comes in all the standard sizes and includes a good alpha layer. What I appreciate most about it, is that it’s “real” nursing wear instead of the “sexy nurse” outfits you usually see. I really admire those who are hard at work in the medical field and it’s nice to have this option available for contests, cosplay, or what-have-you and for only 1L this is a great opportunity to pick up a great working outfit.

The Hi Ho, Hi Ho, It’s Off to Work I Go Hunt ends on Sept 16, so be sure to get out there and hunt down the goodies before it’s over!

Games

Good Morning, FabFree Readers.

Games

Most of the Hunts on the grid are winding down with today being the last day of August. But a few are starting up now, such as the Games of Thrones Hunt in Westeros. This hunt is slightly different in that there are multiple prizes in multiple hunt objects. One hunt object is at the designers main shop while the other prizes are scattered around a central “fair”.  I was able to find this men’s denim jacket with attached hoodie and shirt from “It’s Gau!” at the main fair area for 1L. This is “Jeans Jacket” and it comes in the standard mesh sizes XS-XL and has a good alpha layer. Be sure to pick up the note card that is offered when you land at the fair. It has all the pictures and clues for the Hunt prizes.

The Game of Thrones Hunt in Westeros runs until September 7th.

I remain most sincerely yours,
Gabe's Signiture
