MakeOver Monday part 4

Hello hello, Fab Free! It’s that time again… MakeOver Monday! And we’ve come so far! Two full avatars for exactly ZERO lindens. And I really had to grit my teeth a few times. I’m so weak when it comes to having that “perfect’ (To me anyway) look. I really fret over poor Alistar’s hair. And I’m still looking for something better for him. I swear, if I ever become a designer or builder… I will have good free stuff for the guys. But anyway…

Let’s jump in here. SO, we have bento bodies, Mesh heads, Animation Overrides, and hair. All we need now is clothes. I don’t want to dwell on the clothing part since that’s basically what we do here at the Blog everyday. But I do want to mention a few places, I’ve found very helpful.

First is R&R Swag and their “Rookie Alley” . This is a very nice selection of things for both male and female avatars under 30 days. This outfit is a bit of a mix and match from the Rookie Alley and the past group gifts.

Alistar’s second outfit is a second set of jeans from R&R Swag’s Rookie Alley and a group gift from Asteroidbox for the L’Homme group.  L’Homme is one of the hands down best groups to join if you are looking for male clothes and accessories. The group is free to join, the designers are top notch and you have three -ish months to pick the gifts up. I highly recommend it. 

Last is a current gift for one of our own FabFree Group designers – MaxMagic. They are offering this great Trekkie hoodie for both men and women. I do love geeky stuff!

Kerydwyn’s clothes are much easier to find, go figure. But I still want to show a few choices for our newbs. The first is from BoHo Soul one of our FabFree Group designers. This is the “Impish” outfit which comes with top, pants and shoes. Which is awesome because free good shoes are hard to find. 

The second outfit is from the Cozy Fest event. This event is a bonanza for free gifts from real quality designers. Plus, for new folks… it’s just about everything you can ask for. The group is free to join and each booth has a free gift! Kerydwyn is showing the ‘Maggs’ top from Apple Blossom and the ‘Natasha’ leggings from 1313 Mockingbird lane. These events are great places to “shop” for designers landmarks as well. If you like the gift or what you see in the booth… check out their main store. They may have a free group or other gifts there. Also,

The boots in the second picture are another totally free gift from Body Cult the Marketplace. Digging through the MP can be frustrating… but worth it.

 

Okay that’s it for today cause it’s late and I’m tired and cranky today. ;P  But I think we have covered some ground. Our new kids are looking like real stars on the Grid now.  Take a look at a side by side!

Wow! And remember we spent exactly… ZERO monies! 

SO… next week I will talk about housing and inventory. Or “Now I got clothes… where do I unpack ’em without putting on a free show?”

Madame Midnight

Madame Midnight

Well, would you look at that!  Madame Midnight has come out from hiding and is ready to charm the world into doing her bidding.  She’s all about bending the elements to her will, learning new spells, and long walks on the beach.  She also enjoys her steak rare, but I’m not sure that that’s really relevant in this conversation.  Whatever, she’s magical, ok?

Aaaaanyway…

Ok peeps, now that I’ve got my customary ramble out of the way, it’s time to head over to Midnight Order for some awesome free gifts!  Our friends over at Second Life Syndicate are always about creating different and cool events, so this is a must visit if you’re into dark, creepy, steampunk, or just general awesomeness.  There’s some super cool stuff – I even found that free elf head as a gift!  To get these goodies, just join the SLS group for free and click on the boxes at each stall.  Here’s what I’m showing off:

  • FREE eyeshadow by Zibska with BOM layers and an Omega applier
  • FREE ear cuffs by Garmonbozia
  • FREE book by Ivy with two different hold options, and a rezzable version
  • FREE crystal lanterns by LuluB!  In several different colours and LOD versions

Midnight Order runs until February 20th, so you have plenty of time to visit.

This magical chick is suddenly very in the mood for steak…hmm…

Shopping Day @ Key Style, Ysoral, & Something New!

Fabulous Sunday Finds!

Sundays used to be “shopping day” in SL. Oh, who am I kidding? Every day is shopping day in SL!! But, back in the times of old, my friends and I would gather together at someone’s land and rez out our pose stands for an unpacking party. We’d be brutally honest about the good, bad, and ugly. Sadly, all of my pals have dropped off the grid over the years, but I still hold true to this Sunday tradition.

I am a huge fan of weekly events, and I am pretty certain I belong to all of them: Fifty Linden Friday, Hello Tuesday, Secret Sale Sunday, Glorious Days, 60L Saturday…the list goes on and on. The perk is that you can find great deals but the downside is you have to be quick and hope it’s RL payday before the day or weekend kicks off.

One perk to all weekly sales has been finding new designers and new groups with awesome gifts (again, remind me to ask LL for more group space!). I decide to love a designer based on what they put up for sale on those special weekly events. Are they tossing up their old designs circa 2013 or are they putting up fresh new styles to lure me in?

Today’s outfit is inspired by Glorious Days and Secret Sale Sundays. While these deals might not be there when you get there, they showcase the kinds of items these designers put out. I also poked around at the group gifts to see if the cost was worth it, and determined if there were other elements I liked about the designer’s work. Both events require free group membership, and Secret Sale Sundays requires the use of a transportation HUD.

There were a lot of hot deals to sort through today, and I couldn’t decide which designers to feature! Some Sundays are “meh” but today was a treasure trove. Through Secret Sale Sundays, I found this adorable short set from a shop I never heard of before…Key Style Store! I chose to blog this one because it proves the point of finding new designers through the weekly events. The Marigio outfit has three pieces with a 6 color HUD so you can mix and match. It also includes white sandals which match the whole outfit no matter what colors you pick. Check out the listing below for sizes. You don’t need to be a member of the Group to get the Secret Sale Sundays pricing, but at an affordable L50, you will have access to some really sweet new threads designed for VIPs.

In the Glorious Days event, I found a pretty bracelet to match this outfit at another designer I never knew about: Ysoral. The Luxe Bracelet Alex comes with a HUD where you can customize each part of the bracelet and correct the sizing. This was L1 if you were a member of the Glorious Days group.

Ysoral Bracelet

 

The prop set was also coveted through a listing on Glorious Days. The Cowgirl Saloon Booth was L50 and the cowgirl pose set was L60. While I’ve been to Something New a million times in the past 15 years, I don’t think I realized how awesome their group gifts were. The group is free, and right now there is a sexy couples pose and a delightful single pose with mirrors. The LM will take you the main portal for the land, but there is a TP board right there to click to get over to the store.

Overall, I had an epic Sunday full of great deals and surprises. If you want to come hang at my place, we can spend the next seven hours unpacking boxes!

Colourful

Coming Soon

As much as I love black clothing, I can enjoy a colourful look from time to time. Whenever I have the chance, I buy my favourite items in black. My blogger self is a just a wee bit more colourful than the way I dress when I’m alone and out of the spotlight. Anywho, today’s post is all about colour so let’s jump in and enjoy these colourful and bright items.

Multi-Coloured

Speaking of colours, the Multicolor Hunt is going on right now and they have a tonne of colourful items out at stores around the grid right now! Each prize costs only 3L, and here is a list of the hunt previews, LMs, and hints. The three gorgeous paintings behind me are the prize by Cwtch. You just click the painting to change the colours on it and you can copy it as many times as you want to display them around your house. They are so pretty and colourful! I just love them. 3 Linden for this gorgoeus set of artworks is a great deal! The Multicolor Hunt is going on until January 31st, so not much time left to get your hunt on!

Like a Swan

A while ago, folks in the FabFree chat were talking about Swan and all the gifts available at their store so I had to check it out. Swan appears to be a jewelery store, and they have a whole wall of dollarbies. Look for the ‘free‘ sign on the wall next to the group gifts. These dollarbies are separate from the group gifts. Once I found the wall of cute jewelery for only 1L a piece, I snatched them all up! The gold hoop earrings I am wearing are one of these gifts. They’re gorgeous! I am happy I checked out Swan, as this store was totally new to me until now! Thank you Fab chatters for introducing this awesome store to me! ❤

Lilly

Finally, these adorable shoes are a group gift at StaphaneL. These shoes are called Lilly and they come with options to change the clasps, soles, heels and different parts of the outside of the shoe to different textures. These are so customizable! The StephaneL group costs 15L to join but it’s so worth the join fee. Lots of group gifts and lucky letter prizes are to be found at StephaneL for their group members.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza
