Merrily up the garden path

Good Evening, FabFree – ers!

In the garden

I am so excited for this weekend! There are so many hunts, fairs, gacha events and… an Affair!  Before you think scandalous, I’m talking about the “Truth or Dare Affair” from Evil Bunny Productions. Tons of great designers have come together to offer exciting items themed either love or lust… truth or dare. In addition to the sales, there are a ton of gachas in several areas scattered around the event. I found this sweet little sun dress in the ‘Le Jardin’ gacha machine from Mutiny in Heaven. At only 39L per play you can afford to collect all of the soft colors and patterns. The ‘Clio’ dress comes in the standard Mesh sizes XXS-L and has it’s own alpha layer.

The Truth or Dare Affair runs until February 27th so hurry over! And look! Here’s your taxi now.

Jedi Fabulous

Star Wars

I won’t lie, I’ve been seriously geeking out about the current round of The Fantasy Gacha Carnival. For me it doesn’t get any better than the nerdy goodness of a Game of Thrones versus Star Wars gacha festival. Yes, you read that right. Now as much as I love Game of Thrones, in my world, Star Wars ultimately wins me over. Maybe it’s because I have a lot of nostalgia attached to Star Wars. Either way, there are a lot of lovely things to be had on both sides.

Star Wars Close

It was tough to decide what to show first, so I took a step back from the Fantasy Gacha Carnival and let my hair decide. Little Bones has put out their first ever Midnight Mania Board. This pretty center part long hairstyle is the current MM board prize, and it includes an exclusive color hud with 8 “Natural” and 8 “Unnatural” hair colors. You’ll need to join the Little Bones group to participate in the Midnight Mania, which has a one time join fee of 100 lindens. The join fee is completely worth it, Little Bones is notorious for fairly frequent group gifts, and now the addition of their Midnight Mania. If you’ve held out on joining, now’s the time to get in and take advantage of this great group and awesome brand.

Now, back to the Star Wars inspired finds I gathered at The Fantasy Gacha Carnival, well most of them. First, this awesome All Terrain Recon Transport vehicle by Sushi. Yes, this cool wearable vehicle came from a gacha! I managed to score the BB8 version of this vehicle, which is one of the many commons available. To ride the vehicle you simply right click on it in your inventory and choose “add” to avoid detaching any attachments you may be wearing. You’ll then want to set your avatar to fly and you’ll see the ATRT’s legs start moving. I had to fly down a little to get back on the ground while still in fly mode. This too-cool gacha is just 75 lindens per play at The Fantasy Gacha Carnival.

Next the top and pants Pru is wearing are both from the Moon Elixir gacha. This gacha includes a full set of female “Scavenger” clothing in two variations, with several color options, as well as separate machines depending on what mesh body you do or do not wear. Clearly inspired by the uniquely Star Wars fashion universe, I was not at all disappointed in the fit or look of these items. I also think they are versatile enough to be worn outside the realm of fantasy role play. The Moon Elixir gacha is also 75 lindens per play at The Fantasy Gacha Carnival.

When traveling the Star Wars universe you might want to have a weapon handy. May’s Soul has a weapon gacha at The Fantasy Gacha Carnival that has everything from light sabers to guns. The weapons are highly detailed, wearable items. I picked up this bright green light saber from the May’s Soul gacha machine at just 50 lindens per play. The pose I used for the above photo holding the light saber is from another gacha at The Fantasy Gacha Carnival. The Poseidon booth at The Fantasy Gacha Carnival is stuffed full of static poses inspired by the weaponry of Star Wars. The poses do come with prop weapons as well, I just chose not to use them. You can get the Poseidon Poses for just 50 lindens per play as well.

Needless to say, I had a lot of fun putting this look together with all these great Fantasy Gacha Carnival finds! I hope you enjoy it too.

Your Friday Hunt Report

HUNT SL THE LOVING KIND MAIN POSTERValentine’s Day is just around the corner and you can certainly tell if you’ve been wandering around Second Life. Hearts, flowers, teddy bears… it seems like nearly every shop has them out on display.

You can certainly tell in the hunt world as well. There are lots of romantically themed (and a couple of anti-romance) hunts that you can have some fun with. Heck… drag your loved one along, but hopefully not kicking and screaming. He-he… you know how much macho guys love teddy bears.

If you’re new to hunting, both FabFree and HUNT SL have pages full of tips to help you get going. I recommend them to novice and veteran hunters alike.

So let’s do some hunting. Just poke the hunt names for the 411 on each one.

A Little Classic Classy

Hello FabFree-ers! Are you getting ready for the ‘big’ weekend?

colorMe_001

If you’re the ‘goin’ out’ type for Valentine’s Day you can’t go wrong with a classic Little Black Dress. And right now, you can get your ‘LBD’ for free! This is the flirty ‘Amore’ dress from Tentations at the Color Me Project and it’s the free gift to celebrate Color Me Project’s anniversary.  The dress comes in the standard Mesh sizes XXS-L and has it’s own alpha layer.  I love the heart shape cut out on the chest and the lace detail all the hem. Just the thing for a sassy girl on a night out.

If you have your perfect Little Black Dress… you need the perfect heels to compliment it. Illi has set out these great black heels at the Color Me Project as their free gift for us.  The ‘Black Pumps’ are for SLink High Feet, The Mesh Project, Belleza and Maitreya mesh feet.

Completing my classy classic look today is my little black clutch purse from FLRN Designs. You can pick up this cute little clutch as a free Group Gift from FLRN Designs when you join the free Group. Not only will you get the black one, you also get a red one and a turquoise one!  In the box, you’ll get two of each color: one with a hold animation and one without. There are several other past group gifts available to pick up when you join. But more about that later. ;)

The Color Me Project runs until February 19th so hurry over!

Coffee First

Coffee First

I know I am not the only one here who wants their morning cup of coffee, or two, before the day can really get going. No matter what, it seems like there’s always work to be done. First, coffee! So when I saw this cute gacha by Bueno at Kustom 9 with mugs, boots, and totes, I had to play! These mesh gacha prizes are highly detailed, not to mention the mugs and totes have poses. I love the playful and somewhat sassy little sayings on the mugs as well. Mine says “But First Coffee”, which certainly inspired this post. I love these slouchy boots too, perfect for pants or skirts. The boots come in the “socked” version shown and a “sockless” version. Both styles are included with each color. I really like these totes from the Bueno gacha. I think they make me look like I’m ready for the day with the tablet peeking out the top! The Bueno gacha at Kustom 9 is just 39 lindens per play, and I have to admit at that price, I played it more than I should have!

I’m sure you’ve noticed the bright colorful dress Pru is wearing. How could you not?! It’s one of my favorite styles from  Entice, and you can get it for FREE. This version of the “Love Hangover” dress is a FREE gift available to all Makeover Room group members. I know we’ve seen this style dress from Entice a few times but it’s so cute you really can’t have it in too may colors. My girly side loves the pink and purple chevron pattern, while the black lace accents give the dress a grown-up feel. The Makeover Room group is FREE to join as well, so no lindens needed, only group space.

Guess who just released a new wearable demo in their marketplace store??!  Yep – Orange*Pekoe!  This sweet peach coloured Valentine Cardigan is available for just 2L as a wearable demo in unisex/adult/teen sizes, as well as a with or without the shirt option.  I am wearing it with a pair of my favourite new jeans (Addam’s Real Worn Out Jeans @ this round of Uber) and the Spencer Flats that I picked up at Reign this past weekend for The Saturday Sale price of 75L.  These cute tied flats are still available at the sale price as of tonight in case you missed them on the weekend.

I also wanted to mention the Aphorism Thrift Shop Décor items I have used in the set for my photo today.  These items are 50L per play at this round of The Gacha Garden.  If you play 20 times, you will be gifted with the Seeds of Inspiration prize which is the Reclaimed Wood Clock.  This clock actually tells time, and allows you to set your own timezone (or your partner’s if you need a cheat sheet!).

Laissez Les Bon Temps Roulez

Fabulous Fat Tuesday, FabFree-ers!

Laissez Les Bon Temps Roulez

Yep, it’s Mardi Gras Tuesday and 25 Linden Tuesday all rolled up into one! So let’s Laissez Les Bon Temps Roulez!

First is my sparkly ‘Carnival’ top from It’s Gau. This is a new designer to me and I’m very excited to have discovered them. There are tons of group gifts, lucky boards and specials all over the store. This cute tank top ( With attached bikini top) and the matching tee for the gentlemen are the current group gift. It comes in the standard Mesh sizes XS-L and has it’s own alpha layer. Since this is a Mardi Gras gift… the Group Gift at It’s Gau may change very soon so hurry over if you need to snatch it up.

My beads are a Marketplace find. These are ‘Mardi Gras Beads’ from Dreamwalker Creations and they are free for everyone. Don’t they really set off my whole Mardi Gras look?

Laissez Les Bon Temps Roulez

My gorgeous mask is from Chimeric Arts and it’s  their special for 25 Linden Tuesday. I can’t believe the details and just the quality of the build. I was so excited to find it for such a low price. Chimeric Arts is offering three of the ‘Feathered and Beaked’ masks and three ‘Half Face’ masks as well for the special.

My cute pose is also a 25 Linden Tuesday find! This is ‘The Guard’ pose pack from Belle Epoque. You get six poses all for 25L. I like each of them and had a hard time picking one for this post. So I’m betting you’ll be seeing lots more of this pose pack in the future.

 

25L Tuesday runs all day today so don’t delay getting your shop hopping on!

Hearts and Heels

Hello again Fab Free Folks!

Hearts and Heels

Have you seen all the Valentine’s Day Hunts going on? I hardly know where to start with all the hearts. And cupids and roses and candy….  But I love, no pun intended, this time of year. After yesterday’s career look, I decided I needed something sleek and elegant but a little sexy. Get Frocked had just the thing. This is the ‘Add some red dress’ for the “Add Some Red” hunt. I was just taken by the low cut back and the little bow. Sophisticated but sexy, just the thing! The dress comes in the standard Mesh sizes XXS-L and has it’s own alpha layer.

Remember yesterday when I showed y’all the black ‘Tied Up’ heels from Grumble? Well, I couldn’t resist, I had to go pick up the red pair too! Grumble has twenty little boxes of candy scattered around the store for their “Eat Me” hunt and each one is just 1L.  Including these gorgeous sky high heels for SLink high feet.

Hearts and Heels

Last but not least, Livia has supplied my nails this evening for just 1L as part of the “Stupid Cupid” hunt. ‘In Love’ comes with seven colors/patterns on two HUDs. One for Omega and SLink and one for Maitreya. So they’ve got you pretty much covered!

Both ‘Stupid Cupid’ and the “Add Some Red”  hunts  AND the ‘Eat Me’ in-store hunt run until February 29!

Workin’ 9 to 5

Hey There, FabFree-ers!

Workin' 9 to 5

The weekend is almost up and most of us will be heading back to work tomorrow but there just a minute to show off some great ‘career wear’ I found.

This is the ‘Megan’ dress from Legendaire and it’s free for everyone, no group needed. If that wasn’t generous enough, this gift comes with a six color HUD for a ton of options. The dress comes in the standard Mesh sizes XXS-L and appliers for SLink, Belleza and Maitreya.

My new shoes might be a little daring for the office but who doesn’t like a little daring no and then? These are the ‘Tied Up’ heels for SLink high feet. And they are you free gift for the ‘Hunt for your inner slut’ Hunt from Grumble.  If you like these shoes, you can also find a red pair in Grumble’s ‘Eat Me’ in store hunt for 1L.

Workin' 9 to 5

And I found a nifty ‘office-ready’ new hair style too! This is ‘Barbie’ from Tameless and it’s a mere 10L at the Truth or Dare Affair. Not only do you get the gorgeous red… you get the entire fat pack. So I know there’s a color in there you’ll love.

Sometimes gifts can come and go quickly, so if you want the Megan dress please hurry over. The Hunt for your Inner Slut Hunt runs until February 15 and the Truth or Dare Affair is open until February 29.
