Fab Free Designer of the Week – E. Vary & Mangula


Hello hello Fab Free’rs! It’s time for another designer of the week post. This one is a little different in that we kind of get a two for one deal! The Mangula and E.Vary brands are created by the same designer. The E.Vary shop offers a range of skins, shapes, and cosmetic enhancements for female avatars along with a few mesh and applier clothing items. The Mangula shop offers unique clothing for female avatars. At both shops you’ll find some great gifts and of course shopping finds. The E.Vary shop is a bright and open shop, where the Mangula shop has a surreal cloud-like atmosphere. Both stores have similar information desk areas with info about the store group, social media, and associated groups and events. These shops also share an in world group, the * E.Vary * group will get you group gifts and notices for both the shops. Currently the group is free to join.

At the E. Vary shop there are several free group gifts consisting of female skins and cosmetics. You’ll need the group tag for these, however as I mentioned before, the group is free to join at this time. Over at the Mangula shop you’ll find several other group gifts such as the free Fabulously Free group gift. You’ll need your Fab Free group tag to get this cropped top gift at Mangula. The Fab Free group is always free to join. Each of the gifts in this area of the Mangula store require a specific group tag. Finally you’ll see a few gift boxes hanging out with a pair of star balloons. There’s no group needed for these free gifts however you will need to be a member of the store’s subscriber group. Click the gift, wait while it verifies your subscriber status, and once verified your free gift will be sent to you. Each of these freebies also appear to be ladies clothing. Happy Shopping Fab Free, and I hope you enjoy the up-coming weekend.

A Waltz into Darkness


A Waltz into Darkness

Oh hi there Fab Free’rs! I’ve got some awesome group gifts to share with you. In my last post I celebrated the sweeter side of all the love and mush that comes along with Valentine’s Day. For this post I am feelin’ a little sultry, though I think that goes without saying. I picked up the recent group gift at Speakeasy along with the latest group gift at Dead Dollz. I hope you love them as much as I do.

The Dead Dollz Group Gift – If you’d asked me a week ago if I ever saw myself wearing pasties of any kind I would have said probably not. Just goes to show you never know! These pasties with the little hearts are just too pretty. There is of course a matching lower part, so I’ve added a copy of the vendor ad so you can see the gift in full. This gift is fitted for Maitreya Lara bodies only. Included with this Dead Dollz group gift is a color change hud that lets you choose different preset colors for the hearts and the pasties. You can also turn the pastie portion invisible so that only the hearts show. To get your copy you’ll need the Dead Dollz group tag. There is a one time join fee for the Dead Dollz group of 250 linden.

The Speakeasy Group Gift – I love a good full sleeve tattoo. This new group gift at Speakeasy is just that, a good full sleeve that covers from the shoulder to the back of the hand on both arms. This group gift from Speakeasy comes in an Omega applier only. To get your copy you’ll need to join the Speakeasy group. There is a one time join fee of 100 linden, however there are several group gifts currently available.

Here are the details!

Fade Into You

Fade Into You

I want to hold the hand inside you
I want to take a breath that’s true

Do you ever get into these weird “I need to listen to music from high school” moments?  I’ve been falling down the 90’s alternative hole for the last few weeks and it’s bringing me back to the days when we wore flannel shirts, while sitting on the front steps of the school drinking Jolt Cola.  Luckily I’m not actually doing any of these things, just getting all maudlin and hanging out in my bedroom listening to Mazzy Star and Smashing Pumpkins.  At least I’m staying away from the flannel shirts for now!

A bit of Vanity

Ok, I’m done ranting.  Let’s get to the freebies!  I found this super cute loungewear set by Scandalize and Noir over at the Vanity event!  It comes in this sweet pink colour, either with the ombré I’ve got on, or just plain pink.  Cute right?  I got it by joining the Vanity group for free and clicking on the group gift vendor that’s hiding in the corner.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya

Psycho Killer

There’s a new group gift at Psycho Barbie!  My cute leg tattoos come in three versions: super faded, slightly faded and dark and fresh.  I went for the middling version so you can get a fair idea of what they look like.  They come with an Omega applier.  I got mine by joining the Psycho Barbie group for 50 Lindens.  There are a few other group gifts there too to pick up while you’re at it!

I’d better stick some upbeat music on before it’s too late!

Please Take Your Seats

Please Take Your Seats

Cause the lady is a vamp, she’s a vixen not a tramp
She’s a da da da da da da
Come on fellas, place your bets, ’cause you ain’t seen nothing yet
She’s the top of the top, she’s the best, yes!

Why yes, yes I am quoting Spice Girls at you.  Fight me!  Ha!  All kidding aside, I’m getting some very vampy and classy vibes in my new outfit!  You can grab this look too, just read on my sweets!

Tackle the Fishing

I hadn’t made my way over to the trusty fishing pond over at Sn@tch for a bit, but I’m really glad I did, because there’s a new fishing outfit available!  In order to grab all sorts of goodies, including my hair, necklace, bustier, skirt, and lipstick (and there’s so much more in there too, including goodies for system bodies), all you need to do is dust off your 7 Seas Fishing pole and head on over.  Don’t have one yet?  Easy peasy, just buy one by the pond at Sn@tch for 100L, and you can fish for all future outfits too!  You don’t need any bait to grab all this goodness, just a little bit of patience and time!  The bustier comes with an omega applier, as well as system layers, and the lipstick comes in both varieties as well!  You can class up any joint with this great look, so head on over to Sn@tch as quick as!

Let’s Do the Time Warp Again


After Hours

Hello There Fab Free! It’s good to be here. I feel like I have had such a weird week so far, though I couldn’t tell you what specifically was weird about it. Thankfully I have been able to do some shopping therapy, Fab Free style! Belle Epoque has this cute wiggle dress out as one of their group gifts, and I picked up a beautiful upper body tattoo inexpensively at Speakeasy for a modern pinup look. I hope you enjoy it!

The Dress – I love the mix of retro and modern present in this dress by Belle Epoque. The fabric has an almost latex like shine to it. This fun dress is a free group gift to Belle Epoque group members. The Belle Epoque group has a one time join fee of just 10 linden. This dress comes in a single Maitreya fit only.
Modern Pinup

The Tattoo – This beautiful floral upper body tattoo is just 50 lindens at the Speakeasy main store. I love how the beautiful roses come around the shoulders and connect in a bow. Also, I think the sphynx kitties near the shoulders are adorable! The tattoo comes in an Omega applier only with 3 opacity options.

Here are the details!

Shall We Dance, M’Lady?

A Night at the Ball

Hello there, Fabulouses! It’s not often that I opt to role play in SL, but Ripley happened to catch wind of fantastic his/her free matchy-matchy 18th century outfits that Stan and I just had to check out. If you are a role player in SL, these might be just up your alley! Each gift package includes everything you need from head to toe – all for free with no group join required!

For the Lady…

From wig and hat down to slippered feet, the ladies’ gift from St. Petersburg in SL/Chateau D’Esprit is a complete 18th century outfit perfect for a formal ball. I chose to wear just the gown, gloves, skirt, sleeves, bow and Sacque (kind of like a cape in back), but the gift folder also includes a color change wig, wrap, cap, stockings and slippers. I just love the frilly trim and lace as well as the generous hoop style skirt. I felt so elegant while wearing it! The best part of all was it was completely free and I didn’t have to join any group to pick it up!
Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic clothing layers (gloves, shoe base, stockings, top, underpants, underskirt, alpha layer)
  • Applier for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink
  • Omega Advanced Applier HUD
  • Sacque
  • Skirt
  • Right and left sleeves
  • Wig with color change HUD and hairbase
  • Cap
  • Slippers

And For the Gentlemen…

Although he grumbled about wearing a wig, I thought Stan looked dashing in his suit, which is a free gift from St. Petersburg in SL/Chateau D’Esprit. The men’s gift doesn’t have as many separate components like the ladies’ version, but it looks just as spectacular, and includes everything needed for a fantasy evening. From the powdered wig down to the buckled shoes, Stan was all set to go. He really appreciated the fact that he could throw all the clothing on with just one click. There was no need to mess around with adding different layers or separate clothing items. He simply had to decide to go with either the standard or no lace version of the suit and then add his wig. No fuss, no muss and then he was pacing, waiting for me to finish getting ready. Isn’t that the way it always goes? 😉

What’s Included:

  • M Suit
  • M Suit (no lace)
  • Alpha layer
  • Wig

We’re off to enjoy an evening of waltzing and role play. Until next time, happy shopping!

Good Vibes Only


Good Vibes Only

Hello Fab Free’rs! I hope everyone is doing well. For today’s post I’m excited to share with you a completely free skin by Insol for Genus Project head wearers. Additionally, Pru is wearing the Education for Kenya Hunt prize at Meowhi. I really do like the message on this halter top by Meowhi. In my opinion we just don’t have time for anything other than good vibes!

The Skin – So once again Love pointed me in the direction of this gorgeous freebie. Insol has this “Mary” Genus head applier out for free. There’s no need to join the group. You can head over to their current but temporary location and purchase this gift for free. The gift is waiting on the desk in a little purple gift box. The Mary skin by Insol comes in several tones, each with or without brows. If you need body appliers for the Insol skin tones, you can purchase those for free as well. The body appliers vendor is on the wall opposite the desk. Pru is wearing the “Cinnamon” tone.
Head Appliers Included with Mary Skin: Genus Project Only
Body Appliers Available Separately: Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, Vista, Omega

The Halter Top – This pretty blue halter top is the Education for Kenya Hunt prize at Meowhi. The EKH is a 10 linden hunt, and at Meowhi 100% of the proceeds will go to the Education for Kenya cause. I love when shopping also has a positive purpose other than growing my wardrobe. The hunt object is a pencil. Just to give you a little hint, look low. Happy hunting!
Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass, Belleza Freya

Hair – Magika [03] Mint

Mermaid Monday


Mermaid Monday

Hi There Fab Free’rs! Welcome back to the blog! In a perfect world the above photo shows exactly how I’d want to spend the day. I’d love to be lounging on a fluffy sofa with some pretty candles lit eating tarts from a fancy tray. Alas, it is simply not meant to be, not for real life anyway. Thank goodness for Second Life where I can at least pretend. lol Even better I can get the fluffy sofa, the pretty candles, and the plate of tarts all for free at Merak. Additionally, I can live out a little bit of my mermaid daydreams wearing these leggings from RoRo. Keep reading for more information about the free group gifts at Merak and the store closing sale at RoRo.

Merak – I need to be sure to thank Love for pointing out these awesome group gifts at Merak. Right now you can pick up several free gifts while wearing your Merak group tag including the candles, sofa, and tray of tarts shown. The candles come in 3 versions, and the sofa has single and couples poses along with some texture options for the large center pillow. The Merak group is free to join as well, making these gifts irresistible and well worth the effort. There are some additional gifts available that are not shown in my photo, so I’ve added a photo below of the group gift area at Merak.

RoRo – The news is sad but true, RoRo is closing. The store will shut its doors tomorrow, January 15th. If there’s anything you’d like from the store, now is the time. Most items are marked down to just 25 lindens. I picked up these super cute leggings for 25 lindens. They are an Omega applier only item with several color variations. At RoRo you’ll also find many past gifts out marked from 1 linden to 10 lindens each. Also, there is an assortment of gachas from different stores all marked 25 lindens each. You’ll definitely want to stop by RoRo and check things out. The below photo shows some of what you can expect to find. Happy Shopping!

Here are the details, enjoy!

Meow Meow Hi Fab Free! Haha I hope you’re enjoying the weekend. I have to say mine is going pretty well so far. Have you been by the Pose Fair yet?! I feel like I’ve been talking about it a ton, but with good reason. I am not exaggerating when I say there are so many free gifts at the Pose Fair. I also want to point out that while I may not be blogging them, there are quite a few male pose freebies and couples poses. So there’s my bit about the Pose Fair for today. I am of course showing another of the gifts from the event, this time from WetCat. Also, I picked up the current Fabulously Free in SL group gift at Sexy Princess. Lastly, as always tattoos are irresistible, and Letis Tattoo has a cute 10 linden tattoo out that I just had to share.

The Cushion – The cute little yellow cushion that Pru is so delicately perched upon is the free Pose Fair group gift by WetCat. This simple floor pillow comes equipped with 2 static female sit poses, and 2 static male sits. You’ll need to join the Pose Fair group and wear the tag before clicking the giftbox at the WetCat booth. The Pose Fair group is free to join.

The Boots – Have you seen the Fabulously Free in SL group  gift listing recently? It’s looking pretty good. The gifts do change periodically, so if you haven’t checked them out recently, you should definitely take a look. I picked up these high heeled ankle boots for free at Sexy Princess while wearing my Fab Free group tag. The Fab Free group is always free to join. These cute boots come in sizes to fit Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza feet.

The Tattoo – Finally, the dainty floral linework tattoo on Pru’s upper arm is a 10 linden group only purchase available at Letis Tattoo. You will need to join the Letis Tattoo group to purchase this inexpensive find, however the group is free to join. As much as I do like to be heavily inked, sometimes I enjoy these beautiful more subtle tattoos just as much as a full body one. This 10 linden tattoo comes in several appliers, each with a range of intensity. Also, this tattoo comes in classic system tattoo layers for non mesh avatars!
