Elf Yourself!

Elf Yourself!

I’ve been conscripted by two very discerning elves to help them out in the fashion department at the North Pole.  They squeaked at me in their little chirpy voices that they needed a fresh, modern take on fashion, and I could be a guest elf!  Well, boy oh boy did they come to the right gal!

I dived into my wardrobe to find the most elfy outfit possible, but as per usual nothing really fit the bill.  I bounced down to The Frozen Fair and found a little somethin’ somethin’ that really screamed “ELF” to me!

Red and Green

At The Frozen Fair , I was overwhelmed by the choices with regards to gifts!  Loads were scattered about, some for 1L, some for free. This full outfit from Brii underground was suitably elfish for me, and I snapped it up for 1L.  It comes complete with a sweater, stockings, boots, a hat (not pictured) and makeup (not pictured).  Phew.  One stop shopping on a budget!  The boots and hat are both resizeable, so you can edit them to fit you properly.  The stockings come with Maitreya, Slink and Omega appliers, and the Makeup works with Catwa heads.  The sweater comes in a plethora of sizes:

Sizes

  • Altamura
  • Freya
  • Venus
  • Isis
  • Eve Pulpy
  • Eve Slim
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • TMP

Merry Giftmas!

A free gift at The Frozen Fair was this pose and giant gift box from Baxe.  Lifting my creation high in the air, I really look the part of an Elf!

To the North Pole I go!

Enchantress

Enchantress

Sometimes when the mood strikes, I become a little bit…witchy.  I was inspired by some gifts I picked up at the Hashtag Black on Black Event to become an Enchantress of the snow!  I dunno guys… you can be anything in SL, right?

White on White

There are quite a few gifts out at the Hashtag event, some for free, some for a small fee.  I picked up the Amelia dress at the TRS designs booth, and immediately liked the damask patterning.  It also made me think of freshly fallen snow, all crisp and white! The Amelia dress comes in sizes from XXS to L, and costs a measly 1L, so go grab it!

Enchanting Pose

Another gift I found at the Hashtag event was a free pose by Sam Poses that made me think of someone calling forth the snow.  Very fancy.  There are three poses in this gift, and I noted afterwards that it came with skulls you can hold in your hands if you so desire.  Clearly I needed no skulls for my snowy moment!

The Hashtag Black on Black event is open until November 30th so you’d better hurry up to grab this enchanting look!

A Shutterbug in a Winter Wonderland

Kodak moment

Hello Fabulous Readers!  Ripley and I visited The Mill for another dose of winter wonderland, and came across multiple kodak moments.  There aren’t too many things that would make me kneel in the snow (brrrr!) to snap a photo, but the gorgeous landscape, and Rip’s new pals decked in winter accessories are two of them.  Aren’t Rufus and Rex super cute?

Lilian and Naia Are Super Cute, Too!

There is something so classic in the combination of red and black, and I created this look today by combining three group gifts.  First, my off-the-shoulder, crimson sweater is a free gift from ::LiES:: Creations for members of the Maitreya Gifts, Sales & News group.  With ribbed knitting on the neck and hemline, and a realistic texture in the body of the sweater, this top is bright and cheerful.  Inside the gift package, you will find versions for classic as well as mesh avatars.  Since the MGS&N group is free to join, the Lilian pullover won’t cost you a single Linden dollar.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Venus

Also a group gift, this time from Belle Epoque, my Naia pants come in black, blue, red, white and yellow, so it’s like getting four presents in one.  A free giftie for members of the Teleport Hub group, these trousers don’t come in different sizes, but they fit my Maitreya Lara body perfectly, closely hugging each and every curve.  Featuring a shimmering, satiny texture topped with well placed folds, Naia is sure to flatter your figure.  To add these slacks to your inventory, simply journey to the shop on the Wild Willows sim, activate the Teleport Hub group tag (10L join fee) and tap the vendor.  While you are there, you might want to scoop up the theatrical Venetian Mask which is a gift for Fab Free group members.

All Wrapped Up

To add a finishing touch, I applied a brilliant red manicure, which is a free gift from Hello Dave for members of Fabulously Free in SL.  You can get a better view of this fun polish in my close up below.  “Early Wrapping” features silver ribbons tied across a cherry red background, which is bound to put you in a festive mood!  This applier is compatible with Slink (v2 and above), Maitreya (just click the small nail polish bottles on the right side of the HUD), and Belleza, Vista and Empire (providing you have the appropriate Omega System Kit for the particular brand of hands).

Kodak Close Up

Well, that’s a wrap for this post (I couldn’t resist the pun).  Rip and I are off to explore some more of this wintery landscape.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Hey, Turkey!

Hey, Turkey

Happy Thanksgiving, fabulous readers! 😀

I walked outside this morning and found Mr. Tom waddling around on my front porch. I don’t think he realizes how dangerous it is for him to be out and about, today of all days. If he doesn’t wind up on somebody’s dinner table, then I’m pretty sure my neighbor’s cat (lurking in the background) has his own ideas for him!

Company Ready

I’m all dressed up and ready for the Fab Family to come over for Thanksgiving dinner!

My festive attire is the latest group gift from Ever An’ Angel. The City Lights Bronze outfit is a one-piece mesh pants and top and comes in the following sizes:

  • Fitmesh XS-L with an alpha layer
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

The top is kind of an asymmetrical scarf look that’s cut low in the back and shows a peek of side-boob on the right. Both top and pants are nicely textured in the perfect colors for a fall dinner party.

The Ever An’ Angel in-world group is currently free to join. Also, the Black Friday sale has already started at the mainstore, and everything is marked down to 150L until 9:00 p.m. SLT on Friday evening.

Hey, Turkey

Gacha Gifts

Vendors at the Gacha Garden have set out some really lovely FREE gifts this month, and I was happy to pick up some pretty jewelry items to go with my new outfit:

  • AvaWay has set out the Yellow Sindy Ring for Maitreya Bento hands. It’s a collection of 4 dainty rings for the ring finger of the right or left hand, and it comes in a regular or midi version (I’m wearing midi).
  • BREATHE has set out the October Bracelet. It comes in gold, silver, black, and rose, and includes a resizer menu.
  • The Pretty Pretty Poses that you see here are the gift from KoKoLoReS. 3 Bento poses with mirrors are included in the box.

You do need to join the free Gimme Gacha in-world group in order to pick up the gifts.

Hello, Free French Manicure

While not a Gacha Garden gift, I wanted to point out that my pretty French manicure (of which I didn’t get a good picture) is a free gift from Hello Dave. There are 2 palettes of absolutely-free French manicure colors set out, and you don’t even have to join a group to get them. The nails are compatible with Slink and Maitreya hands, as well as others using the Omega system.

Oh, and don’t forget to pop on your Fab Free group tag while you’re there and pick up the gorgeous new gift for Fab Free group members!

Ok… I’m off to finish up dinner and shoo away Mr. Tom before the neighbor’s cat gets him. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving (to all who celebrate today). We at Fab Free are so thankful to have YOU as a reader! 🙂

Sugar Lips

Sugar Lips 1

Hey Fab Free!

It’s always fun to get free makeup, because you get to try out some fun looks that you might not usually choose for yourself!  My recent visit to the Candy Fair brought me just such an opportunity, as I picked up a few fun little gifties! You can see the other gifts I picked up HERE.

Sugar-Sweet

My sparkly, sugary lipstick was a fun free gift from Pout! at the Candy Fair It comes in several different shades, and I think it looks quite fun for a night out with friends!  This lipstick comes with an applier for both Catwa and Lelutka.

Macaron Madness

Another little gift at the Candy Fair was the pretty nail polish applier from alaskametro.  I’ve only shown one of the options available, but there are a total of 15 different nail designs, all inspired by my fave french patisserie – the macaron!  This free gift comes with nail appliers for Maitreya and Slink, and there’s an Omega applier in there for good measure!  Here’s a close up of my nails for ya!

Sugar Lips 2

Pocket full of Poses

Last but not least, I always enjoy a good bento pose.  I love the way your fingers can get expressive!  This pose from Foxcity is only 1L on the marketplace!  Super cute!  You can grab this pose right here:

Well, Fab Free – I’d like to wish our American readers a very Happy Thanksgiving.  Although I’ve already celebrated Thanksgiving this year (up here in Canadaland!) I’m very thankful to be part of this awesome blogging family – thank YOU all for welcoming me so warmly.

Candy is Dandy

It is the Candy Fair‘s 5th birthday, and I gotta tell you guys – it was sweeter than sweet!  Not only were there free gifts from almost every vendor, but the sim itself was festooned with sweet treats and bubblegum pink everything!  There were mazes, and tea parties, and giant cupcakes everywhere I turned.  Very scrumptious!

As you can see in my photo above, the sugar rush has taken over and I’m clearly thinking with my sweet tooth!  Do you think I’ve picked up enough lollipops? Doubt it…just a few more…

Epic Sweetness

This yummy looking bodysuit and matching donut ears are a delicious free gift from Epic at the Candy Fair, and I think I look pretty delectable in it.  I am now also craving donuts.  Interesting.  The bodysuit comes with an Omega Applier, and the headband is resizeable!

Going Blonde

I swapped my usually raven locks for a blonde updo, courtesy of Ayashi, who is always quite generous with their gifts.  I feel sweet as pie!  The hair comes in both rigged and unrigged, in this very wearable blonde hue, which is absolutely free at the Candy Fair!

Candy from Strangers

The mounds of packages at my feet from the Candy Fair piled up, and I needed a pick-me-up.  These free lollipops and pose from Ginger Fish were just what the doctor ordered!  How cute!

The Candy Fair will run until December 1st

Things That Go Bump in the Night

Things That Go Bump in the Night

Hello Fabulous Readers!  Ripley and I sure had a scare as visited the Halloweentown Sim.  There we were, just minding our own business, when I heard the crunch of gravel behind us.  Each of us froze, and silently stared at the other.  “Did you hear that?” my eyes sent a telepathic message to the pupster.  “Uh huh,” he silently agreed.  I turned and looked behind us, but saw nothing except the darkness and empty night air.  As soon as we started walking once again, the dreadful noise continued, edging closer and closer.  I whipped around, and as you can see, my brave defender hightailed it for safer ground while I was left cringing in fear.  To his credit, when he realized I wasn’t running beside him, Ripley did return, though.  He let loose a ferocious growl, which startled the shambling skeleton just long enough for me to gather my wits and take off, running full speed, with canine feet churning up the ground with me.  Luckily, we were able to escape just in the nick of time!

A Halloween Sweater for A Frightful Adventure

The evening was brisk, but I stayed toasty warm in my Tasha Halloween Variation sweater from Elgund and Nilsson at The Cart Wash.  With cheerful pumpkin and cat faces, stars, and moons scattered across a charcoal background, I was perfectly outfitted for the upcoming holiday.  I love the thick, chunky knit of this long sweater.  All I needed to complete my look as a pair of tights and long leather boots.  Best of all, this cozy pullover is a free gift for the Tenth Anniversary of the Cart Wash, which you can find in the small green box embellished with a pink ribbon in front of the vendor display.  Simply right click and buy for 0L.  Easy peasy!

Sizes Included:

  • XS
  • S
  • M
  • L
  • XL
  • alpha layer for classic avatars

I hope that is the last Ripley and I will see of wandering skeletons.  Our encounter was far too close for comfort!  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Close Your Eyes

You Can Close Your Eyes

Well the sun is surely sinking down, but the moon is slowly rising,

so this old world must still be spinning ’round, and I sill love you.

So, close your eyes.  You can close your eyes; it’s all right…

Hello again, Fabulous Readers!  My first stop at The Cart Wash Sale was the Baci Shop display, where I found the Last Leaves Dress that I blogged about {HERE}.  Ripley and I planned to start checking out the rest of The Cart Wash, but before we began our journey, I couldn’t resist scooping up another Fabulous Find from the Baci Shop, this gorgeous sweater dress.

Visiting the Baci Shop, Again

With rich tones, long sleeves and a chunky knit, this frock will keep me toasty warm well into autumn.  I love the bright pops of color in the simple flowers, which contrast beautifully against the ombre background of the “Again” dress.   Its snug fit draws attention to my curves in all the right places.  I could see myself sporting this dress in RL as well as SL, if only temperatures were below the 90’s.  (Hang in there, Kat, we’ll get there….).  Priced at only 10L, this budget-friendly, gorgeous sweater dress will snuggle you in warmth and style, while leaving plenty of spare linden dollars for more Cart Wash finds.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha Layer
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

So Many More Discoveries to Make…

With two Fabulous Finds just from one vendor at The Cart Wash, Ripley and I are eager to explore further.  I’m sure we will be back soon!  Until my next post, happy shopping!

A Treep To The Darkside

Xclusiveanimationshorrorhunt
Hey there FabFree!  You won’t believe what happened last night.  I can hardly believe it myself!

It went something like this…

He and I were out for our routine after dinner stroll through the park, my hand in his – like it always is.  The air was crisp and cool enough to pink our cheeks and the leaves were crunching below our feet while we talked about the days events.  We got to our half way point of the loop at the big old oak tree at precisely 7:00pm, laughing about how things are becoming a bit too routine.  Of course this was a comfortable routine and we were both happy with it.

I looked up at him smiling and his eyes got big like saucers and his face went straight.  With his best Dracula impression he said to me “You vant to take a treep to the darkside?”.  Of course I rolled my eyes and laughed at his dorky impression, but he pulled my hand laughing evilly “Mooa ha ha ha ha haaaa” as he swiftly darted right off of our normal path, and we were in the trees before I could say “CARSON CAIBEN!”.  I had never been this way before, but he seemed to know where he was going…

The sun was long gone by now

A light fog blanketed the ground.  The almost full moon offered just enough light for me to see the gravestones past the old rickety gate he was now inviting me to enter through.  “Pfft…  we shouldn’t be here!” I said “and also.. what has gotten into you?”.  He smirked with an I dare you face and motioned for me to walk through the gate saying “ladies first”.  I went through that gate of course just to prove I wasn’t scared (even though I was lol).  He followed behind me, closing the gate with a clang.  He led me up a path to an open coffin.  I looked at the coffin with confusion, and then I looked at him…  AND HIS FANGS.  It’s true everyone….  Carson is a vampire.

Get The WHOLE Graveyard Scene for 1L!

Hunt down the Horror Hunt (Blood splatter) icon at X-Clusives Animations and buy it for 1L and you’ll have this entire animated scene including everything you see here (except Carson and I). The fog mists, the bats, orbs and ghosts fly and the coffin is VERY animated with cuddles to the x-rated variety.   It has a land impact of 66 prims and would be great for photography, or a secret spooky skybox :).
