Your Friendly Neighborhood Vampire

Friendly Neighborhood Monster

“When other little girls wanted to be ballet dancers, I kind of wanted to be a vampire.”

– Angelina Jolie

Hello Fab Free! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. Mine was pretty great, I feel refreshed and ready to take on the weekly grind. As for this post I have some Spookzilla finds, and a few October group gifts to share. First, I’m slightly obsessed with bats, which made these lounge shorts and matching top by 1 Hundred absolutely irresistible. I also picked up some pretty must-have makeup group gifts at Purple Beauty, and ghoulish confection group gift from Palette.

1 Hundred at Spookzilla

1 Hundred has 8 total hunt prizes at the Spookzilla event. You’ll need to hunt down the little ghosts from 1 Hundred hidden around the Spookzilla sim. I picked up the “Night Wing” shirt and the matching “Night Wing” shorts for just 10 linden each. The top says “moonlight” across the front and has a purple bat on the back. The shorts have a high slit on either side.

Sizes Included: Belleza Freya. Slink Hourglass, Maitreya Lara, MeshBody Legacy

Purple Beauty

I’m a sucker for good makeup, BOM layers, appliers, I’ll wear them both. For me makeup is just a fun form of self expression. Purple Beauty has two beautiful group gifts available. One is a BOM layer eyeshadow set, and the other is a glittery gloss set in a Catwa HD applier. The colors in both sets are vibrant and beautiful on. The Purple Beauty group has a join fee of just 50 linden.

🌸 NEW GROUP GIFT

Palette

This “Vampire Milkshake” group gift at Palette manages to be gory and cute. It also ties in nicely with my very relatable Angelina Jolie quote at the top of the post. This ghoulish beverage comes with a bento hold pose for the right or left, and a display version. The cup says “Happy Halloween” with little bats, also I love the little bat chocolates on the top! You’ll need to join the “Leggy Mainstore Official” group which is the store group for Palette to claim this gift. The group has a join fee of just 10 linden.

90’s Queen

90's Queen

My 90’s teenage self is squealing with glee right now.  Back in 1994, I would have given anything for an outfit just like this one.  But as if I’d be allowed out of the house looking anything like this.  That’s ok, I’m living out my fashion dreams now, and loving every minute of it.

Drama Llama

The Horror Movies Hunt is in full swing, and with it come loads of fun 1L hunt prizes.  I stopped by The Bold Llama T-Shirt Co. and hunted for the little stabby knife symbol.  I found it without too much hassle, and got this cute eyeball lollipop tank top.  It’s bizarre and yet also appealing!  Not bad for 1L!  The Horror Movies Hunt is running until October 31st!

Your hint is:  I’m no dummy – I can feel that knife in my back!

  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Ebody

  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy
  • Tonic Fine
  • XS – XL with an Alpha Layer

Charmed, I’m Sure

The cute necklace I’m wearing is a completely free item I picked up at Broken Princess.  Every jewelry item in their store is completely free, and this whimsical item really called to me.  You’ll find lots of freebies at this location, even in the other stalls.  (You may be familiar with UpCycled and FreeBees…this is another designer located beside them!).  You’re going to find loads to love here, and this necklace was on the top of my list!  No need to join a group, it’s all free!

Time to crank some Smashing Pumpkins and crack a can of Jolt Cola!

Creeper

Creeper

There’s something mystical and magical about a cemetery from my perspective. Perhaps it’s the palpable stillness, and the haunting quiet. Whatever it is, to me cemeteries feel like the kind of place where anything could happen. The often elegantly carved statues, headstones, and grave markers with their memorial inscriptions give a cemetery an almost romantic ambiance. My macabre fancies aside, I am excited to share some fabulous finds from Paper.Sparrow and Asura with you!
Paper.Sparrow
Did you know that Paper.Sparrow is participating in Spookzilla this year?! What’s Spookzilla you ask? Why a spook-tacular hunt with with prizes from tons of designers from all over the grid. Paper.Sparrow has 9 gifts hidden in the cutest little green ghost. Each gift is just 25 linden, all you have to do is find them! My witchy ruffled dress and batty earrings are both 25 linden prizes by Paper.Sparrow on the Spookzilla hunt. I’ve included a copy of the Paper.Sparrow hunt key below so you can peep all the creepy cute prizes.
Dress Sizes Included:  Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Isis, Venus, Freya)

Spookzilla 2020

Asura

My creepy kawaii look would be far from complete without a few of the group gifts from Asura. I love the colors in this tattoo by Asura. It comes in BOM layers and appliers. It also happens to be a free group gift at Asura. Another of the Asura group gifts is this ultra kawaii choker. The little stars are what makes this one for me. The “Counting Stars” choker group gift has resize scripts, and has a color change hud with tons of options for customizing the look so it can go with anything. Asura has a one time join fee of 99 linden.

A spooky little girl like you

Spooky little girl like you

I’m excited to join the team and make my very first post in honor of my favorite holiday, Halloween.  When I was a child, I loved to trick-or-treat. I had so much fun dressing up, exploring neighborhoods and getting free candy.  So it is only natural that I love hunting down bargains and freebees.  In the spirit of the spooky season, I have some treats to share.

My first find is this pair of free Black Ghost Leggings by Technicolor Dolls (formerly Orchid Petal Designs) from the Spooktakulum hunt and come in two different styles with BOM and Omega Appliers.  This is not the only free gift in the booth.  There is also a treasure chest tucked in the back, as well as treasure chests in almost every designer’s stall.  The hunt runs from September 20th to November 20th, so you’ll have plenty of time to collect those goodies.

These cute pumpkin sunglasses are from *1* Tsutsujiya and can be found at the designer’s booth for 1L at the AkumuMatsuri Nightmare Fest 2020. The hunt doesn’t end until November 7th, so you have plenty of time to get a pair for yourself.  (If you do not feel like traveling, you can also pick up these sunglasses on the marketplace for 10L.)  I got lucky and pulled a pair of orange Batty Boop Slides by 1313 Mockingbird Lane from their gatcha at Trick or Treat Lane. I was so excited because the shoes matched the pumpkin shades perfectly and were only 50L.

To complete the outfit, I found this great skirt at Baci as part of the Gothic Star Outfit. It is one of many free group gifts and the group is only 1L to join.

Skirt Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique

Optical Illusion

Optical Illusion

Ok, I know I’ve been doing a lot of dark and Halloweeny, but now and then a pop of colour is needed.  I’m sure some readers out there also long for it, so this post is for you!

Now I’m Free

Did you know that The Free Dove gets updated regularly?  There’s always something new for you at SL’s premier freebie outlet.  The owner and organizer, Dove, works really hard to procure free and fabulous finds for the Second Life community.  You can find all the latest updates listed on their blog HERE.  This striking gown from Tiffany Designs is a new addition, and it really makes me think of those optical illusion books that were so hot in the 90’s.  I can’t even remember what they were called (please don’t let it be “optical illusion books”, because that would be semi-embarrassing).  On the same table, you’ll find a matching jewelry set for free, and a pair of shoes (not pictured) that go with the look perfectly.  To get them, and a bajillion other free items, just join The Free Dove group for free!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Tonic Curvy
  • Tonic Fine
  • Venus
  • XXS – L

Je Vois La Vie en Pose

A new round of La Vie en Pose has taken off, and as per usual the designers are spoiling us with free gifts!  Join the La Vie en Pose group for free, and you’ll be able to pick up a free gift from each stall.  There are some really cute poses, and this one from Lyrium is quite different in the fact that it is more of an animation than a pose.  It cycles through a selection of cute movements that are super fun to take pictures of, and are really quite adorable.  There’s lots more!  Head over to La Vie en Pose before October 25th when it all goes aurevoir!

Bye for now!

No Salvation

No Salvation

“Hell is empty and all the devils are here.” – William Shakespeare 

As we seem to be rapidly approaching my favorite holiday I was excited to see the new group gift at Caboodle. The Caboodle group gift is a short nun’s habit, which lends itself perfectly to creating a creepy demonic possession look. Inspired by the idea I added the new group gift tattoo by Letis, the Pumpkin Hunt gift by Blackstone at Swank, and some inexpensive Marketplace finds from Corvus, Mary, R.A.D. and Glow Up. I think this look would fit right in at just about any haunted house. Time to get terrifying!

Caboodle

Truly this nun’s habit group gift at Caboodle was the inspiration for creating my demonic nun look just in time for Halloween. The Caboodle group has a join fee of 100 linden. The habit can be repositioned, and sized. I wore it with a simple hair-base. Also, don’t forget to pick up the previous group gifts still available at Caboodle.

Letis

Letis put out this perfect-for-Halloween unisex spiderweb upper body tattoo as their latest group gift. The Letis group is free to join, so don’t miss out on this very well done tattoo.

Appliers/Layers Included: Omega Evolved, Maitreya, Slink, Legacy, Belleza, Signature, BOM Layers (35%,50%,75%100%)

Blackstone

I mentioned the Pumpkin Hunt happening at Swank in my recent post “Let Me Show You the Way.” The dress and horns I used for this look are from the Pumpkin Hunt gift by Blackstone. This gift includes a full look with a dress, horns, and a matching devil tail (not shown), as well as a HUD with several colors for the dress. You can pick this gift up for free at Swank. You’ll need the free Swank group tag, I’ll link that group below. This dress is fitted for Maitreya Lara only.

Swank Group – secondlife:///app/group/35fc648a-c80a-bd06-7b1c-0385c52e0fc1/about

Marketplace Finds

The gifts from Caboodle and Letis were a good start for this scary nun I’d imagined, the Marketplace was helpful for much of the rest.

Corvus – No possessed being would be complete without darkened circles around the eyes. I picked up the Corvus Demon Eyeshadow BOM layer for 30 linden on the Marketplace.

Mary – I also found a Halloween gift by Mary from 2019 on the Marketplace. The little goth cross tattoo comes in an Omega applier and is 1 linden on the Marketplace.

Glow Up – For some added gore I picked up a little nose-bleed drip by Glow Up on the Marketplace for free. It comes in a BOM layer only.

R.A.D. – Finally, the bloody sewn-shut lips are a Marketplace dollarbie by R.A.D. This gory costume essential comes in BOM layers and an Omega applier.

Alright all you creeps and ghouls, I really hope you enjoy these freaky fun freebies and cheapies. It was a lot of fun putting this super creepy look together for Halloween. Have fun out there!
