Nobody’s MALT

Nobody's MALT

Let’s be clear….

…I’m not a MALT (male alt, for those who don’t know). Every so often, one of my fellow bloggers or even myself are asked If I’m a real dude or just another version of (INSERT IN FEMALE BLOGGER’S NAME HERE). This has been happening to me since 2010 and I don’t think it will ever stop. But rest assured, there is a real live boy behind this Pinocchio…

But for those who do have a MALT (or just looking for a nice suit), head on over to SecondSnaps and join the group for FREE pick up your very own FREE MALT Suit. This ensemble consists of shirt and pants combo, a jacket, a vest and a tie. The suit also has comes with a HUD to change the print on the tie and the color of the belt. I also picked up a FREE Pipe from the BOILDEGG display at the TMD Event.

/me wanders off to do manly things that manly men do….

A Cynful Celebration **Extremely Limited Time**

Celebrating Cynful
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! I hope all the Mother’s out there had a wonderful Mother’s Day. Speaking of celebrations, after a busy weekend I was excited to log into Second Life and learn about Cynful’s Anniversary celebrations. It’s always exciting when a designer is able to celebrate longevity in SL, especially when they share their good fortune with everyone. Cynful is celebrating along with several amazing designers and offering a slew of FREE group gifts to all Cynful group members. The Cynful group is FREE to join. Here’s the only hitch, I have no idea how long these fantastic gifts will be available. I picked out a few to show, but trust me when I say it was hard to pick just a few. Each of the gifts are not only FREE but fabulous. You’ll find two rows of gifts waiting for you on the docks across from the Cynful main location. Don’t forget to wear your Cynful group tag!

These Gifts Could Disappear Fast!

ICONIC is one of the brands helping to celebrate Cynful’s Anniversary. There are actually two gifts from ICONIC, one being the Heidi hairstyle Pru is wearing. I love messy bun hairstyles, but I especially love the heavy bangs of this one. The gift includes a fat pack of color huds, and a hair-base applier for Catwa heads, and one for Lelutka heads.

The pretty jewelry set is the Cynful Anniversary gift from Maxi Gossamer. The set includes bracelets and matching earrings. All the jewelry items can be sized via touch menu. The same touch menu will also let you change the color of certain gems.

Cynful Celebration
Along with the jewelry and hair, I also scored this satiny pink floral print romper from Bueno. This FREE Cynful Anniversary Celebration gift by Bueno is fully mesh, and comes in several body-specific fitted mesh sizes. One thing I want to let you know, when you click the Bueno gift vendor, make sure to accept each of the sizes. At first I thought I’d accidentally clicked it several times and was getting the same item over and over. In reality, it was handing out each size one at a time.

Finally, these Cynful Anniversary gift shoes from Noir couldn’t be more perfect with the Bueno romper. The heels come in the pastel pink color shown and a fitted size for Maitreya feet as well as one for Belleza feet, and of course one for Slink feet.

Seriously, these gifts are gorgeous, and if I thought they’d be available longer, I’d just as excitedly show the remaining gifts. So run, run, run to Cynful. This is not a drill!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

School Dayz

School Dayz

The long, slow walk to the end…

For those of us who’s working lives are in academia, the month of May is the slowest of the year.  Faculty and students (even the janitorial staff) have a date marked on their calendar and are slowly counting down the days. But for some reason that day seems so far out of reach….

Id, Ego and Ink Blots…

My spring collegiate (and tired) look today is packed full of freebies and dollarbies! Ink Blots have provided as a hunt gift in the Peace By Peace Hunt, the Peace By Peace Gift Shirt. This pullover shirt with a hoodie projects a laid back, comfy feel. All the gifts in the Peace By Peace Hunt are just 1L each. Did you know that Egoisme has a whole building of FREE gifts? Hit the FREE group joiner in the building and pick from a wide selection of shirts and pants. I selected the Brown Jeans (among others).

End of the year events…

My final gifts are from events. I stopped by The Mens Department Event (TMD) and found a FREE gift from Gabriel. The Rolled Bracelets come for both arms and can be worn individually or together. It also has a resizer for each wrist to get the right fit. My other FREE gift was found at the [BODY FACTORY] booth at the We<3RP Event. The black Backpack I’m slugging around also has a built in resizer that you can adjust each axis to fit any shape.

So what’s my final countdown? Eight long days…

Bad Romance at TCF

Bad Romance
Hello Hello Fab Free! It’s been such a long week, I’ll be so glad for the weekend. Weekend yearnings aside, I promised more of The Chapter Four Anniversary gifts, and I’m here to deliver. As I mentioned in my previous post, there is a 50L join fee for The Chapter Four group, which is a bit of a bummer, but I believe it’s worth it for these fantastic gifts.

Pr!tty Awesome Gift

Speaking of, this cute side-swept hairstyle is The Chapter Four Anniversary gift from pr!tty. This is one of those hugely generous gifts. Not only is the style a full fat-pack of colors, there are 3 color styles, rootless, medium roots, and heavy roots. There’s also a lower front version of the style. This FREE gift comes with the headband shown, and two additional headbands as well.

A Little Meow Meow

I really love the delicate detail of the two necklace combo that is the Supernatural TCF Anniversary gift. These adorable necklaces can be worn separately as well as together. Also, there is a hud included that will allow you to resize them for easy fitting.
Bad Romance 2

Going GaGa

I will tell you that I really don’t believe in the concept of guilty pleasures. However, I understand the concept, and Lady Gaga is a “guilty pleasure” of mine. That said, when I saw that the TCF Anniversary gift by Kraftwork was this sign that reads “bad romance”… yeah love it! If you’re not sure about the connection with Lady Gaga, it’s the title to one of her songs. The sign can be resized manually and has a faint glow.

White Lace

Lastly, this lingerie set is a Maitreya applier TCF Anniversary gift from Ambrosia. Just wear the applier hud and click it to apply both the top and bottom. Also, based on the name which you’ll see in the credits below, I expected the lingerie to be mauve. However, I’m not disappointed in the white lingerie. I think it looks very feminine and pretty.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Give Me Some Breathing Space

Snapshot_001
Good morning FabFree! I don’t know about you, but I get very excited over the group gifts that Scandalize sends out! They are always so sexy and well done and most times come in multiple colours, like the gift that was put up yesterday!

What’s New At Scandalize?

The new group gift at Scandalize is called Zoe and is the hot 2 piece outfit you see me wearing today.  It comes in several mesh body sizes and includes a texture change HUD for several different colours, both for the top and bottom so you can mix and match if you please.  This group is 100L to join, but there is a WHOLE WALL full of group gifts to take advantage.  You’ll be glad you joined!

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya, Isis & Venus

I’m All Choked Up

The lovely Leaf Choker I have added to my outfit today is available as a free FaMESHed group gift at this anniversary round.  It’s made by Baiastice, is resize and gives you three metal options (silver, gold, copper).  As mentioned in previous posts covering the FaMESHed group gifts, the FaMESHed group is free to join!

Just One More Thing…

I should also mention that I am not really after some “breathing space” as my title suggests….  The pose I have used in my photo is part of the Breathing Space 5pc Pose Set that is currently available at [west end] for the Unknown Hunt!  This hunt is free, so head down there and hunt down the icon!

Time for a Little TCF

Maye & TCF
Hello Hello Fab Free! I hope everyone is doing well. So I decided to take some of Love’s advice from her recent post “Finally… FaMESHed” about entering an event and I am happy to report that I was able to get into the Anniversary round of The Chapter Four. Given the meager abilities of my little laptop, I knew it would be a task to manage the event. Still, the gifts were completely worth the time I spent camera-shopping for the little pink TCF Anniversary gift boxes. I’m just going to tell you now, there are tons of gifts. I’m not even sure I picked them all up, but I gave it a good try. To get the gifts at each vendor, you’ll need to be wearing your The Chapter Four group tag. Currently there is a paltry group join fee of 50 lindens. I know that’s not what everyone likes to hear, in my opinion however, it’s well worth it just for these TCF Anniversary gifts. That said, this will the first, of at least two, maybe three posts showing off my favorites of all the fantastic gifts. I want to make sure you get a good preview, so you won’t feel so bad about that group join fee. First, let’s talk about this pretty face.

It’s Gonna Be Maye

Freckles always win in my book. These freckles are courtesy of the May group gift at 7 Deadly Skins. The aptly named Maye skin comes in Omega appliers for the head and body, in the tones Sand and Apricot. If freckles aren’t your thing, there’s a non freckled version in both tones as well. You will need to join the 7 Deadly Skins group to get your May group gift. The group has a one time join fee of 225 lindens, and there are monthly gifts available for men and women.

Flowers For Your Hair

Starting from the top so to speak, this pretty floral hair wreath is the FREE TCF Anniversary gift from Cheveux. The flower crown comes in this single color, and can be resized via touch menu. Also in the package you’ll find a demo for the Cheveux hair pictured in the ad.

Ribbon For Your Neck

The cute little ribbon choker is another FREE TCF gift. This one is from .BF. and it comes with a color change hud with several solid colors for the ribbon only. There’s also a separate hud for adjusting the size. It gives you a great amount of control over the choker’s size so you can get an exact fit.

Polish For Your Nails

If you’ve been looking for a solid collection of pretty nail appliers all in one hud, it’s waiting for you at TCF. The FREE TCF Anniversary gift from Aleutia is a manicure set with 30 separate beautiful colors. That is not a typo, there are 30 colors to choose from. There are 3 separate huds included, one for Slink hands, one for Maitreya hands, and one for Belleza hands.

A Cute Top to Tie it All Together

And finally, for now, this bright colorful crop top is the FREE TCF gift from GATO. I love the bright colors! Fortunately and unfortunately the top is a Maitreya applier only. No other appliers or classic  layers are included.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Finally… FaMESHed

faMESHed1Good morning Fabulouses!  I have been trying since May 1st to get into FaMESHed for their big anniversary round to take advantage of the huge load of group gifts available, and after a week of trying…

I MADE IT IN!  I MADE IT IN!  I FINALLY GOT INTO FAMESHED!

At this round of FaMESHEd, almost every vendor as a free group gift set to the FaMESHed inworld group (which is free to join).  You will find them in blue boxes on the floor in front of the vendor displays.  It is still very hard to teleport into the event, but don’t give up – persistence pays off, and don’t worry if you can’t get in right away because this is a month long event.  I’m sure it will be easier to get into near the end of the event, and the gifts will all still be there!

Three For Now…

Today I am showing off three of the FaMESHed group gifts, but I will indeed be back here on FabFree to show you more of them!!

  • United Color –  The Sima Dress in a summery Sherbet shade is the free group gift offered by United Colour.  It comes with a HUD system that allows you to change the skirt between three textures, as well as take it off and have the option to just wear the top on it’s own. (Made for Slink, Belleza & Maitreya mesh bodies)
  • COCO –  Maitreya and Slink body/feet wearers will be happy to learn that COCO has put out these adorable Mule Slides as a free FaMESHed group gift in Ivory!
  • EMPYREAN FORGE – In my second photo below you’ll be able to see the gorgeous Papillon Ring that is being given out at the Empyrean Forge display.  It includes a texture change HUD that allows 8 colour changes for the flower and a silver/gold option.

FaMESHed1a
My Laggy Event Advice…

Make sure before you teleport into the event that you have:

  • Stripped down to a low lag outfit or an alpha layer.
  • Removed your AO and other HUDs.
  • Turned off all of your gestures. / tummy talkers, tails etc.
  • Turn your settings down as low as they will go.
  • Join the group before you get there from search, so you are not looking for a group joiner that may or may not actually rez for you.

Once you arrive:

  • Derender other avatars.
  • Allow yourself to fully rez before you move around.
  • Don’t panic if you crash, simply log back into your last location and it should just put you back where you were.

If you have more laggy event advice, leave it in comments!  We can all learn from each other  🙂

Fifty 5 and Steamy

Steamy

The temperature is just right…

I’ve drawn a bath and am ready to relax after a grueling day at work. I just need to slip out of my new clothes and sink into the hot relaxing tub and soak my worries away. I picked the the Bruno Outfit at Costarlos for just 55L as part of the Fifty 5 Thursday sale. This style is appropriately named Dot for the dot texturing on the shirt. This is just one of three items you’ll find on the Fifty 5 Thursday wall at Costarlos.

Now to slip into the tub…. HEY! That bath wasn’t for you….
