Ombre Polka Dots

Polka dotsHey There Fab Free’rs! Welcome back, and thanks for being here. So I want to tell you, I’ve tried my darnedest to get a really cool in world shot of this outfit at various locations around the Second Life grid, and my laptop is just not having it this week! It’s a cranky little thing some days. I really wanted to show off this group gift dress from !gO! paired with the group gift hair from redMint as much as I could. These plain background shots will have to do. Both of these gifts are beautifully unique, hopefully my photos do them enough justice.

Starting with this messy long pony tail hairstyle from redMint, how lovely is this style? I adore the idea of a long messy hairdo, it reminds me of ’90s grunge fashion. I also really do enjoy the hair color of this FREE group gift; the group is FREE to join. The color is a pale grey with hints of blue-green, and purple. It instantly made me think of the “sterling” hair color that has been showing up all over my social media feeds. As per usual with most redMint gifts, this one comes in the color shown only. You’ll find two sizes however.

This ombre orange and purple polka-dotted dress with it’s white collar and cuffed sleeves makes me think of Wednesday Addams, and gorgeous fall sunsets. Once again, !gO! has put out a beautiful gift for their group members. This is the sort of outfit that would be perfect for a Halloween party that you didn’t want to wear a costume to, but still wanted to be festive. The dress comes in body specific sizes as well as standard mesh sizes.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Almost Ready for Samhain

It’s Almost Halloween!

Are you costume ready? If you’re the type that likes to dress up, then you may want to stop by Purplemoon Creations for the October group gift pictured above. The Sayyida Outfit in white has a definite pirate feel to it and includes the dress, gloves, and trifecta hat for your dressing up pleasure. Of course you can skip the hat if you don’t want the costume ‘feel’.

Included Sizes!

  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass and Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Standard mesh sizes

But That’s Not All!

As Love mentioned in her post [Here] for your 50L group membership, not only do you get the group gift for this month, but you also get access to the current hunt that’s going on. There are 10 mermaids hidden on the sim with lovely prizes such as Love showed in her post. Hurry as time is running out. You only have two more days to snatch up these lovely items!

You can’t take the sky from me

You can't take the sky from me

Hello, hello,

Dear readers and welcome to the final edition of Edi’s Costume Ideas! With Halloween steadily creeping up on us, I was looking for something especially spooky to share with you today and I found it in No Cabide’s latest group gift. Aptly named Demon Girl, the outfit consists of a chic tube dress with a playfully plunging neckline. Little black dresses are a classic wardrobe staple and I’m happy to report this particular one caters to both classic and mesh bodies. For those of us with classic bodies, the Demon Girl dress comes in two sizes (Small and Large) with a spiffy alpha layer to help with the fitting. For those with mesh bodies, there are sizes for Maitreya, eBody, Slink Physique and Slink Hourglass.

Those little extras!

I’ve encountered so many generous creators in my Second Life shopping adventures and Athena Amulet of No Cabide is certainly one of them. Together with the dress, you will receive the wings, horns, tail and necklace pictured, all of which are mesh and exquisitely made. Footwear is not a forgotten detail and these lovely studded boots come in three standard sizes (S-L) with an alpha layer and boots base.

Did you get all that? Well, here comes the best part! The No Cabide group is free to join so you’ll be able to grab this outfit and take flight with no cost at all. How’s that for the icing on the cake?

Speaking of the sweet stuff…

Have you been to the Candy Fair yet? The event is running until the 31st of this month and is filled with sugary goodness. The majority of merchants have free gifts out so be sure to snap those up while you’re having a look see. One such example is the Willa hair from Wasabi Pills that I’m wearing in the picture. This cute two-toned hairstyle comes with an alpha layer and two sizes so that the flowing pigtails don’t cut into your front.

Hunts!

There are so many hunts going on this season and I’m just going to ahead and highlight two of them. The first is the Mega Halloween Hunt by WoW Skins and Like Designs. The objective is to root out 20 pumpkins (10 at WoW Skins and 10 at Like Designs) containing some great prizes for just 1L! Pictured is the Maram Skin, which is one such prize. In the package, you’ll get the beautifully glossy classic skin with cleavage/no cleavage options, a brow base and also system layer eyes! Oh and don’t forget there’s a 50% off sale happening at WoW skins until the 2nd of November.

The eyes have it

I’m not wearing the eyes included in the Maram package at the moment but only to show you another hunt gift that I picked up from Mesange for the Boo! Bunny Hunt that is running until the 31st of this month. I’ve always believed that working on the little details of your avatar is important and when I saw these eyes I could not get to the store fast enough! The blue-grey of the Storm eyes are absolutely hypnotic and in the gift, you’ll receive system eyes as well as mesh ones with an alpha layer. You’ll also receive Huds for the Genesis Mesh Head and a Hud for mesh heads using the Omega system. All of this for just 1L!

And that concludes my very first Halloween here at FabFree. I hope you’ve enjoyed my costume ideas and I wish you all the best in finding yours! If you’d like for me to do more themed segments, hit up the comments section to let me know!
