Fortune’s Fool

Fortune's Fool

“I am fortune’s fool!” – Romeo, Romeo & Juliette – Shakespeare

Hello Fab Free’rs! It’s my favorite time of year. The weather starts to get cooler, the leaves turn, and Halloween is just around the corner. I can tell from these playful if mildly occult themed gifts from the Garden of Shadows event that many of the designers in Second Life are getting into that magical mystical spirit of the season as well. At the current round of Garden of Shadows many of the participating designers put out at least one, sometimes several, 10 linden gifts. There’s no need to join a group or wear a tag to purchase these event cheapies. While shopping the event I saw 10 linden gifts for the ladies, gifts for the gentlemen, unisex items, and even some home goods. I picked out three of the gifts to share with you, I hope you like them!

The Top – It’s no mistake that these Garden of Shadows event gifts I chose to share have a slight fortune telling theme to them. I’ve always had a fascination with the other worldly and mystical. This top is from a shop called Shinu Made. This mini crop top has a fun, macabre Ouija board print complete with dancing skeletons. It comes in three mesh sizes, and is just 10 linden.
Sizes Included – Slink, Maitreya, Belleza (There is a single mesh size for each body.)

The Necklace – The flat black kitty cat necklace Pru is wearing is another 10 linden gift at the Garden of Shadows shopping event. This one is from a shop called ProFect. It does not have any scripts, which makes it a low lag accessory, and it can be manually resized.

The Crystals – I think these Divination Crystals from Melt are a really fun, beautiful accessory/prop. They spin and rotate as if propelled by magic. This Garden of Shadows gift is also just 10 linden. Along with the spinning animation, they have their own hold pose to complete the effect. Also included is a color change hud for the crystals that gives you 8 color options.

Here are the details, enjoy!

Fab Free Designer of the Week – 09/16/2018 – Chaotic!

Hello hello Fab Free! Remember when I said recently I wasn’t ready for the weekend. That was an understatement. Now I am not ready for it to end! Either way, here we are, and I’m glad for it. This week’s Designer of the Week is Chaotic!. Let me just start by saying this store is larger than it looks! The Chaotic! shop is a ladies clothing boutique. Among the pink flowers, unicorns, and bright pink, green, and black decor you’ll find a truly eclectic mix of casual and what I would call “club wear” clothing. Much of what I saw did appear to be mesh and come in quite a few body specific sizes. If you’re looking for something casual but with a little bit of sass and sexiness, Chaotic! just might have what you’re looking for. There are also quite a few opportunities to score some free or heavily discounted items, which of course we love!

While you’re shopping keep an eye out for the Discount Roulette boards. I spotted three, but I could have missed one. The Discount Roulette works so that you pay full price for the featured item, and then are automatically refunded a random portion for a special discount. You might even get the item for free! I also spotted two Midnight Mania board with very low targets. One is for everyone, no group needed, and the other is for Chaotic! group members only. Don’t fret, the Chaotic! group is free to join. There are also lucky letter boards, and an entire section of group gifts. The group gift section has gifts for various store associated groups. This is also where you’ll find the exclusive Fabulously Free in SL group gift. This gift is free to Fab Free group members. Don’t for get that Fab Free group tag! All in all, there is plenty to make Chaotic! a unique and fun shopping experience!

We Are the Weirdos, Mister

Weirdo
Hi There Fab Free! I feel like this week was one of those that both dragged on and flew by. I wasn’t prepared for today to be he weekend already. Even unprepared, I’m all for it! Just recently Love did a post where she showed us two of the cute new free Lucky Letter Boards at Petite Mort, if you missed it her post is here. I mention it because she let me know that Oubliette had also put new free prizes in their Lucky Letter boards. She also said they reminded her of me. Well I am here to say she was so right! This novelty tank top especially is right up my ally. In addition, this flirty little belted skirt is also a free Lucky Letter board prize at Oubliette. I think it pairs nicely with the top. Keep reading for the who, what, and where of how to get your copy of these fabulous finds.

The Top – As you may or may not know, Petite Mort and Oubliette share a store group. The group is free to join. Also, the single group will grant you access to the free Lucky Boards and Group gifts for both stores. Just be sure to wear your group tag before you start stalking those Lucky Letter boards! This cute top comes in several mesh sizes. Bonus points if you know what movie this quote is from, without having to look it up!

Sizes Included: Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus)

The Skirt – This is what I would call a micro mini shirt. She is short ya’ll! However, since when has lack of length stopped anyone from wearing a cute skirt in Second Life?! This one is really cute. I think the studded belts also make it fun to wear. Like the top, this skirt is also a free Lucky Letter board prize at Oubliette. It comes in the purple shade shown, with several size options.

Sizes Included: Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus)

Here are the details, get lucky!

Goodnight Moon

Goonight Moon
Hello Again Fab Free’rs! I hope anyone out on the U.S. East Coast is keeping safe and as dry as possible. Today I have some super cute what I like to call “cheapies” to share with you. I picked up these pajama pants from Petite Morte, and the tattoo is from Moon Tattoos. Both bargains are too good to pass up if you ask me!

The Tattoo – This cool unisex tattoo is a Marketplace bargain from Moon Tattoo. The tattoo is priced at just 59 linden (as are many of the tattoos at the Moon Tattoo Marketplace Store). It comes in appliers, and there is a classic system tattoo layer making this tattoo suitable for both mesh and classic avatars.
Appliers Included: Omega, Maitreya Lara

The Pajama Pants – I love these pajama bottoms from Petite Morte. They are exactly what I want to wear when I’m around the house. Right now Petite Morte has a selection of 3 different novelty pajama bottoms for sale at just 50 linden per style. If moons and clouds aren’t your thing, there’s a cute kitty print, and some piggies to choose from. These won’t be 50 linden forever, so make sure you pick a pair up sooner rather than later. You’ll find them at the Petite Morte store next to the Lucky Letter boards.
Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), TMP

Here are the details, enjoy!

Hunt Nevermore

Nevermore
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! Happy Sunday-funday! So I’m sure you’ve noticed, I’ve been into the hunts happening around the grid lately. There are so many! Today I have some Nevermore hunt prizes I’m excited to share with you. The Nevermore hunt is a dollarbie hunt, so all the prizes are just 1 linden. As I am sure you guessed by the name of the hunt, many of the gifts are loosely Edgar Allen Poe or “The Raven” themed. The hunt item you’ll be searching for is a paper letter.

The Circlet – I’m a sucker for a pretty circlet. I think they should be an everyone kind of fashion accessory, and not just for witches and elves. Though I’ve been called one of those! hah. This particular moon and star dangle circlet is the 1L Nevermore hunt gift at Harambee. It comes in 3 color/metal versions and has resize scripts.

Hint – Search the inSanity shop.

The DressTrashed put out this sexy little dress as their Nevermore hunt prize. Like all the Nevermore hunt gifts, this one is just 1 linden. It comes in several mesh sizes, in the single purple fabric with black details version shown.
Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass) Standard Mesh (s,L), eBody

Hint – A love letter left at table height for you to find at midnight

The Boots – Believe it or not these Spotlight boots are black! They have such a high shine to the texture that it gives them the almost silver metallic look shown in the photo. These sassy stiletto lace-up boots come in several sizes for mesh avatars. They are also Spotlight’s 1 linden Nevermore hunt prize.
Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus)

Hint – Light a candle, or two, or three. 

The Furniture –  I kinda love this furniture set from Kitty Creations. It might even become a permanent setting in my own personal space. This full set including the cuddle bench, leather ottoman with drinks, rug (not shown), and birdcage with a raven are all part of the dollarbie Nevermore hunt gift from Kitty Creations.

Hint – Find a place to sail away and nevermore be seen.

Here are the details, happy hunting!

Twisted Persephone

Persephone and the Sprites
Hello There Fab Free’rs! Aren’t you so glad the weekend is here? I know I am. Recently I posted about a fun Medieval dress that is a hunt gift at Moonlitcat Creations. Well, this fiery “Persephone” dress is yet another free hunt prize at Moonlitcat Creations. The Twisted Hunt, while frustrating at times, is a really fun hunt to participate in. That said, if you’re not familiar with the story behind Persephone, it’s worth looking up. I will tell you though, I like to think maybe they got the story wrong and she was in love with Hades from the start. They had such and unconventional, unfathomable romance that no one believed it. So the story was written that Persephone went with Hades to the Underworld against her will. That’s my version at least! Either way, it’s a beautiful story about why the seasons change. I hope you love this Persephone inspired look as much as I do!

The Dress – Before I tell you about the dress I want to mention that there is a matching male gift for the Twisted Hunt at Moonlitcat Creations. Both gifts are completely free, you just have to find them! This draped flame red dress has the appearance of bright glowing flames rising up the hem. The very low draping in the back of the dress is such that it is a completely backless dress. The dress comes in several mesh sizes. Lastly, it also has an alpha layer, making it suitable for classic avatars.
Sizes Included: Classic Mesh (xs – XL), Fitmesh (xs – L), Maitreya Lara, Slink Physique, Belleza Venus

Here are the details, happy hunting!

Fab Free Designer Friday – 09/07/2018 – Fatal Fashion

Happy Friday Fab Free! This week’s Designer Friday post is all about Fatal Fashion. While the shop does cater mostly to the ladies, I think it’s important to tell you right away that there is a small section of casual menswear on the second floor. Sorry it isn’t more gentlemen, but something is better than nothing, am I right?! haha I’d say that most of the clothing at Fatal Fashion leans toward being casual, whether it is for the men or the ladies. You can also find a small section of shoes on the second floor near the menswear. I also spotted mesh clothing as well as a few applier items, so there is fashion suitable for classic avatars. One of the best things however is the teleporter sitting outside the main entrance. I love that you can simply teleport to whatever section of the store interests you the most.

If you’re interested in group gifts, you’ll want to head to the back of the store, just to the right of the center staircase. There’s a good sized wall of various group gifts including the Fatal Fashion store group gift, and the exclusive Fabulously Free in SL group gift. You may recall the Fatal Fashion gift for Fabulously Free in SL group members from Nevi’s post “Just a Beautiful Day.” Both the Fatal Fashion store group, and the Fab Free group are free to join.

While you’re there, it’s definitely worth venturing to the second floor of Fatal Fashion, even if you’re not looking for the men’s department. Most, if not all, of the clothing on the second floor appeared to be marked at 50 lindens or less. Don’t quote me on that, I didn’t check every tag! However, there are quite a few mesh and applier items for sale at bargain prices. Also on the second floor is a pair of Lucky Letter chairs. There’s one for the ladies and one for the gents. These chairs do require a group tag. You’ll need to join the Glow Events group. Not to worry, the Glow Events group is also free to join and there is a group joiner just above the Lucky Letter chairs. Happy Shopping Fab Free’rs!

Renaissance Hunting

Renaissance Hunt
Hello hello Fab Free! I am glad you’re here, and I hope you are well. I’ve been doing pretty well, if I do say so myself. This is a busy time of year for me, so it’s nice to get away and have some fun here in Second Life. Speaking of fun, it’s been a little bit since I had a reason to dress up or role play. The Renaissance Hunt that recently started gave me the perfect opportunity to do just that. Just about everything in the above photo is a free Renaissance Hunt gift, can you believe it?! Keep reading and I’ll give you all the details.

The Dress – I know the dress shows a bit dark in this photo, but the details are really quite pretty. This Medieval style dress is the free TRH prize at Moonlitcat Creations. I’ll add a copy of the vendor photo for this lovely dress below. The details of the leather corset and the full skirt are very nicely done. Also, Moonlitcat Creations has a matching gift for the men, so guys there’s a reason for you to join the hunt too!

Sizes Included: Fitmesh (xs -XL), Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Maitreya Lara, Ocacin, Tonic (Fine, Curvy), Alpha Layer also Included!

The Furniture & Decor – The entire room set up in the top most photo is included in the free TRH gift by Dench Designs. The furniture is beautifully detailed, and has preset poses in the seating. The chair and bench have male and female sit poses, where the sofa also includes some cuddles and kissing poses. Also, the seating has texture change options to change the look of the fabric. The floor rug is equipped with a texture change menu with quite a few options as well. Finally, just by clicking the painting you can scroll through several period art pieces. I know not everything is fully visible in the photo, but I hope I at least gave you a good idea of just how much is included with this awesome hunt prize.

Here are the details, happy hunting!

Fab Free Designer of the Week – 09/01/2018 – Dream Couture

Hello and Happy First day of September Fab Free’rs! This week’s Designer of the Week is Dream Couture. I’m sure you’re wondering why the photo with the pretty fairy grass and the whimsical tree, don’t worry I’ll get to that. First, Dream Couture is a ladies clothing store. The shop is small but has a nice range of items from casual tops to slightly formal dresses. I’d say the style was cute and feminine. The Dream Couture shop is set up in a way that it doesn’t really have a visible exterior. That said, there are two bay windows, each with this cute tree window display. The fun part is there is a pose stand in front of each of the windows. You could take a few cute selfies if you were so inclined!

Also, if you’ve never been to Dream Couture, now is the perfect time to check them out. They are having a Clearance Sale and all the items in the shop are marked down to 30 lindens. Yes, you read that right, 30 linden! I think I might have even seen a few items marked lower than 30 lindens, but don’t hold me to that! Also, it’s a great time to pick up Dream Couture’s exclusive Fabulously Free in SL group gift. You may recall this casual red dress from Nevi’s post “Field of Many Colors.” All you need to do is wear your Fab Free group tag and click the gift vendor. So take a little time out of the weekend, and head over to Dream Couture for the amazing sale and fabulous Fab Free gift.  I hope you all enjoy the rest of your weekend, happy shopping!
