Fab Free Designer Friday – 01/12/2018 – Deadly Nightshade

Deadly Nightshade
Hello Fab Free’rs, and welcome back to the blog for another edition of Fab Free Designer Friday. This week I get to talk about Deadly Nightshade. Not the plant, the shop! Deadly Nightshade is self-described as “bringing you quality avatar accessories of the magical and otherworldly varieties.” After browsing the shop, I felt like it was a sort of Second Life version of an Occult shop. At Deadly Nightshade you’d purchase accessories and other items to aid in an otherworldly or magical appearance. Most of the items I encountered are unisex as well, so the guys can get accessorized also.

The Deadly Nightshade shop has a very minimalist setup with signage on the floor guiding you to different types of merchandise. There are walking accessories, wearable auras, gachas, and more to explore. I even spotted a tiny bit of women’s clothing, and some decor. The landing point is a round central room where you’ll find everything you need in regards to shop information, group gifts, and events. Fitting with the round room, the circulation desk at Deadly Nightshade is also round. You’ll want to check out the desk, it’s where you’ll find the Fabulously Free in SL group gift. Both the Fab Free group and the Deadly Nightshade group are FREE to join. So if you’re looking for something different, something magical perhaps, you won’t want to miss out on these Fabulous FREEBies!

Outside My Window

Outside My Window

Like most people, I work indoors. All day. Usually from behind a computer. And I often spend time looking out my window, watching the world go by.

I’ve resolved this year to try to get outdoors more often, even if it’s only just to walk the dogs. So far, I’m not doing very well… but it’s only January, so I’ve still got time, right? 🙂

Back in Black

I love a basic black suit, especially one that’s as versatile as this one.

The Blazer Dress and Piper Pants is a recent group gift from Clef de Peau. It can be worn as a suit, as you see here, or without the pants as a very sexy dress.

The outfit comes in the following mesh sizes:

  • Belleza Freya and Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass

Both the jacket and pants come with a HUD so you can choose from 7 different colors: black, “princess” (pink), wine, rosewood, navy, crimson, white, and ivory.

IMPORTANT: At this time, you can only find this gift in the Clef de Peau in-world group notices. It was removed from the store for some reason, and I don’t know whether it will ever be put back there. So as of now, you must join the group to grab the gift from the notices.

Pssst, there’s also a gift for the guys.

Enjoy! ❤

5 Second Life related Twitter accounts you want to follow in 2018

I just wanted to write up a quick thank you to Caitlin Tobias from all of us here at FabFree for including our Twitter Feed in her “Top 5 Twitter Accounts You Want To Follow in 2018” list on the Caits World Blog! We are honoured to be mentioned.

Additionally if you are a member of Twitter and would like to start following us there – you can do so at our Twitter page @FabFreeinSL.

Caits World

I know, I can’t believe it myself but I am really publishing another list I created!

In this post I am going to give you 5 twitter accounts you want to follow in 2018, simply because they tweet handy and useful stuff, and some fun too!

If you are not into Twitter you can of course stop reading and surf to the next blogger, or you could read and perhaps get inspired to join the world of tweets and find out you can actually benefit from it when it comes to Second Life!

Why Twitter? Twitter is one of the oldest social media platforms, well known for its limitation in characters per post and was in the beginning of social media referred to as ‘micro-blog’ for that reason.
Since a few weeks, months, they have raised the maximum of character to be used in a tweet from 140 to 280…

Spun Sugar

Spun Sugar

Some days I feel fierce, and others I feel sweet.  Today the world is raining and cold, and that makes me want to hide meekly away.  I put on some sweet pastel shades and sip my tea daintily letting the world pass me by, perched on my cozy little pouf.  Are you feeling sweet and demure today, like I am?  Well then, I’ve got news about where to pick up these charming gifts (and a whole lot more!).

Guardians of Gifts!

I hopped over to the Gacha Guardians event, and as always I was blown away by the amount of gifts the creators have put out for us!  I made my way round, and was completely delighted as I went.  All that is required to make these gifts your own is the Gimme Gacha group tag – the group join is completely free.   I found this cute little schoolgirl uniform at the NYU booth.  I love the pleats in the skirt, and the sweet pink colour. It comes in a variety of sizes for all your innocent school girl needs!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique

Pastel Hair, Don’t Care

I have always adored free hair, and when it’s made by Pr!tty, you can always hear me squeal a little in RL.  In my wanderings around the Gacha Guardians event, I came upon this generous offering by them, which I snapped up immediately for free! I comes in a full fatpack of colours, so you can change as often as your heart desires.

I’m sitting pretty as well thanks to Velvet Whip, who have placed yet another free gift out at this event.  It has a few male and female poses on it, and I enjoyed playing around with it immensely.

Now, where did i put my teacup down?

The Cold Never Bothered Us Anyways

The Cold Never Bothered Us Anyways
It may be minus a billion outside, but he and I couldn’t be more oblivious to it!

Frosted Snowflakes

At Sweet Intoxication you can hunt down a snowflake icon for The Frosting Hunt 2 this month (ends on January 31st) and gain yourself the matching outfits you see Carson and I wearing tonight.  There are two hunt icons hidden priced at 1L each, one pink for the ladies and one blue for the men.  You’ll find them both in the same spot, but make sure you pick up the right colour for your gender or you’ll be spending 1L you don’t need to!

For Her

The prize for her is a very shimmery long formal gown in ice blue called “Butterfly Gown”.  My favourite feature of this gown is the detailed butterfly at the back.

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya, Venus & Isis

For Him

He will receive the handsome shirt and vest combo called “Ethan Shirt” in a matching shade of blue.  This item could even be dressed down with a pair of jeans and worn any time!

Sizes Included:

  • ADAM
  • Aesthetic
  • Jake
  • Signature
  • Slink
  • TMP
  • Classic Sizes XS-XL

Setting A Formal Winter Scene

No need to fight the lag for a romantic night of dancing!  Simply head to The Second Life Marketplace and pick up Emma’s Winter Ballroom Skybox by Emma’s @ Blue Moose!  I took this photo inside the beautiful skybox and this is just one little corner.  There is a chandelier in the center that you can turn on and off, and it is actually 20 X 20, so you’ll have plenty of dancing room.  Rez a little snow and some sparkle lights and you’ll be set!  Don’t even worry about the prims… it has a land impact of 4!  The price?  FREE!

Game On!

18-01-12

The games people play…

If you are reading this, you obviously play online games.  I’ve spent countless hours, socializing, blogging, leveling, raiding and chasing the next best weapon in that given game. The games I have played online are many and varied. From card games to RPGs, to social interaction games like Second Life, each defines a bit who I really am.

Gamer Boi…

My gamer look today is made up of two dollarbie gifts from the All ‘stuff Hunt. D2T Designs is providing as their hunt gift the All ‘stuff Hunt Menstuff Hoodie. The Malcom Shorts are the prize at Trashed. Both the hoodie with my favorite mantra “Eat,  Sleep, Game, Repeat” and the shorts come fitted for the following body types:

  • ADAM
  • Aesthetic
  • David
  • Jake
  • Signature
  • Slink
  • TMP
  • Classic Sizes XS-XL

If you game for fun or glory, be sure to pick up both of these hunt gifts for just 1L each.

It can get hairy, sometimes…

If you have ever played an MMO and have taken part in a raid, you know that sometimes it can get very intense. Take one too many steps or move in the wrong spot and you can be the one responsible for the raid wipe. That’s the thing about Second Life if you talk about things getting “hairy’, the conversation is usually about hair or appliers. My messy gamer hair is a FREE group gift at ARGRACE. The Minatu Hair is just one of the group gifts available to members. I’m just glad in gaming you always get another life, a second, and a third, fourth…
