Before and After

IMG_2289

Cheerio gang!

This post is not your typical before and after.  Oh gosh I *do* love me a before and after, you know when they do makeovers?  It is one of my fondest wishes to one day get a makeover by professionals.  Alas.  But I love a makeover, it’s always so exciting to see what changes they make and how awesome whomever or whatever they were working on came out!

This is kind of a reverse before and after to showcase the awesome goodies I got at the Arcade Event, courtesy of Pare’.  Now, if you want to get all the juicy details of how the new system at the arcade works, I spelled it all out in my previous post here.  With that out of the way, let’s get on to the fun stuff, the goodies!  The machine for Pare’ is called Night Crawlers and is 75L a play and I had to come back on subsequent days to get both the outfits I was lucky enough to grab.  The above was the pink, which I love.  The below photo shows the Halloween version which I was lucky enough to get on my second day try.  I was originally going to just blog the pink one, but when I got the Halloween one as well, I couldn’t resist combining the two.

So, what exactly do I call my before and after?  The first photo, above, is before the Zombie Apocalypse, the second photo before is, well, after, obviously, and our brave heroine can tell she has become outnumbered and she is about to become Zombie herself.  Notice how she is biting her lip in distress?  So she has gone from geek chic to zombie hunter.

As I stated in my previous post, you choose the size you want to play for in the machine and I chose Maitreya Lara as that is what I wear.

Lessons learned by our lovely heroine… a gun works better than an axe when fighting zombies.  Unfortunately.

The End

Innocent Until Proven Evil

Innocent until Proven Evil

When hinges creak in doorless chambers, and strange and frightening sounds echo through the halls. Whenever candlelights flicker where the air is deathly still — that is the time when ghosts are present, practicing their terror with ghoulish delight!

-Haunted Mansion Ride, Disney parks

Hey gang!

I’m back with some ghoulish delights of my own, found at the new style Arcade Event.  The event has been updated from the old style gachas into a new system of its own, which has you grabbing a HUD as you enter, and which you wear while you shop.  When you find a machine you want to play, you connect it to the machine. (don’t spend fifteen minutes trying to find it on the machines like I did at first, each machine is on a base and at the front of each base is two buttons, one to connect your HUD.)

Once you are connected, it will show you which item has been chosen for you to play for.  If you want that item, you pay the machine (if you try to pay it without the HUD, it will refuse your money and send it back to you.), if not then disconnect and head to another machine.  If you do play, you will get that item and the HUD will show you a new, random choice.

If you want to try again, you have to wait until the next day, as it will reset at midnight, and you can get new random numbers.  If you try again that same day, you will get the same numbers.  It’s kind of fun, really (and a bit addicting!).

So I lucked out on this play, the Mikunch machine where I got this cute dress (you choose the size you want to play for on certain machines), I chose Maitreya cause that’s what body I use.   It comes with a HUD giving you a handful of color choices (black, white, red, pink).  It’s only 75L a play.

This dress gave me sort of a “Bad Seed” sort of vibe, perfect for Halloween.  She is just a sweet girl, right?  Right?!  Only time will tell!

Happy Haunting!

Oh, What’s a Witch to do!

Raw Image, only Vignette added

What’s a Witch to do… When she can’t Remember *where* she parked her Broom!

Hmmm, that’s not mine, and this one isn’t mine…  Oh darn, none of these are mine!

Oh!

Hey gang, I didn’t see you standing there (or sitting as the case may be!)

I am back with a bit more fun from the Swank Pumpkin Hunt!  This is a hunt going on at the Swank Event and it is so much fun, so many great designers with goodies!  The hunt is free, and although you are required to join the Swank group, that is free as well.

This time I have a super cute outfit from Brii Underground!  This is a complete outfit, cute hat and everything, that is a hunt giftie at Swank.  This is a fit for Maitreya only, but golly it’s cute! (yes, I said golly.)  Since it is so cute, this, as you can see, is *not* one of my scary posts.  Thought y’all could use a break!  Don’t worry, I have more in the wings!  You will just have to wait and see!

Has anyone seen my broom around?  I need it to fly home!

A Precisely Placed Puzzle of Pink Pizzazz

pink_017

Home, Sweet Home

Welcome to my humble abode, gang!

I welcome you into my sl home on this Sunday morning, where I surround myself with all things pink (not the entire house, just this one room).  This is my dressing room/office.  You can’t see my desk in the photo, but it is there.  It took a lot of time, searching and lindens to pull this beauty together and it was worth every minute of it.  As Aline will tell you, if you can’t have it in real life, create it in second life!  This is the room where all the magic happens, trying on outfits, deciding what you guys need to see, then styling, and finally coming back and putting it all together into a blog post.

Today however, I’m going a step further and taking my photo in here as well.

I found this gorgeous dress at the Swank Event Pumpkin Hunt.  Now I am a blogger for Swank Event (along with my Fab Free duties!), but this time, I happily get to combine the two.  This is a free hunt and there is a plethora of pumpkins hidden at booths at the event.  You do need to join the Swank Group, but it is free to join.

This dress is courtesy of Zoom, one of my favorite designers, and comes with a HUD with ten color choices.  I chose my least favorite color (ha ha).

It fits:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

Swank Event runs until the end of the month as as there are both fashion as well as home and garden designers, your gifts will have a perfect variety of both things!  I’m still going through everything I got!

Happy Sunday!  Enjoy your treasure hunting!

The Devil Wears MOoH!

Sponsor MoOH!

Boo!

Oh it’s just me gang!  Did I scare you?  No?  Not even for a minute, huh?  You all are way too smart for me!  I just can’t trick you!

Since I can’t trick you, howsabout a nice Halloween style treat?  Yes?  Great!

Grim Grinning Games!

If you head on over to Spooktacular, you can get spooky too!  This is a new event running the entire month of October (the 31st, which is, of course, Halloween!) where you can find those brand new, handy dandy, nifty and fun, newfangled Next Up machines!  Now, if you haven’t seen them yet, these are the replacements for many of the old Gachas.  The machines look very similar, but each machine will show you a photo or a number of what prize is next, meaning if you choose to pay the machine at that moment, you will get the prize shown.  If you *don’t* like the prize shown, or have your heart on something else, just give it some time and check back, once someone else plays, the numbers will move forward to reveal other prizes in the machine.  So while gacha was a game of chance, these are more a game of timing.  Both seem to include some element of luck.  But here at Fab Free, we make our own luck cause we are stubborn girlies!

This costume I am wearing is from MOoH!, it is only 50L a play and they are Flat Skeleton Avatars!  There are lots to choose from (see key below) and I am showing you the Devil one.  It is a very weird feeling being flat!  Kinda fun too, so give it a try.  Since these are complete avatars, they fit *everyone*.

The Halloween fun continues!  Stay safe Guys and Ghouls!

… in a place, that perhaps you’ve seen in your dreams…

in a place that perhaps you've seen in your dreams

Well, hello there, FabFree. I want you to know… I resisted for as long as I could. But the Spooky Season is upon us. And I must embrace it! Especially when I find such wonderful spooky things at the Shop and Hop.

My gorgeous get up is “Morgana” from Malified. Now this is a new to me designer but I am so impressed! All the things in their Shop booth look just as awesome as this ensemble, I had a hard time not emptying my wallet right there! I’m glad I took the time to look around because there were several other free gifts scattered around to find. Morgana comes with everything you need even the shoes and stockings!

Sizes Included

  • Maitreya

Then I found the perfect accessory to complete my look. This horned crown, called ‘Bella Donna’, is from Narcisse and it’s their free gift. You can change the size and position as well as change the color of the roses and the pearls. It looks like it was just made for me!

The Halloween Shop and Hop runs until October 31st so you have plenty of time to explore it all!

Sometimes, you just *gotta* blog something.  The wings on this outfit sold me, I tried them on and said “woah!” out loud.  Sold.  Must blog.  Sometimes too you can see the end photo in your head, sometimes you can get there and sometimes you can’t, but when you are inspired, there is always a vision.  I saw my vision and got to create it this time, so I am grateful and blessed.

and I love anything with fingerless gloves.  😛  Just by the way.

So this awesome getup is another of those awesome free goodies at the Halloween Shop & Hop going on now and lasting until the end of the month.  This is courtesy of Alter, which is a new to me designer (I’m discovering so many amazing designers lately!  It’s such a delight!).

Honestly, you are gonna be unpacking for agessssss once you go to the shop & Hop (as usual!), I even wrote down a few places I want to go back to once I have some more lindens.  There are also a few gift cards as gifties.

I’ve got one more Shop & Hop showcase coming up for you, so hold tight.  Then it’s back to the spooky!
