Good Afternoon Fab Free! I hope everyone is doing well. Recently a few of our Fab Free Designers have set out some great new FREE gifts at Fabulously Free in SL Headquarters. If you haven’t been to FFHQ recently, it’s a great time to go. There are recent gifts from NSP Florals, 3 Graces Designs, Storax Tree, Rowena Springflower, and Mayfly! Come check it out, and don’t forget to peek at the Gacha Yard Sale while you’re there!
I’m sure I’ve mentioned this before, but I still have a lot of fun going out hunting. My partner and I go together while we’re discussing the hints via Skype, and fan out looking for the hunt prizes. Hunting in pairs and groups makes it a social event! Then there’s all the free (or very low cost) stuff that we come home with, so it’s a win-win.
There are some really good hunts going on right now. I’m planning to complete the Men Only Hunt 6 before it’s over, and then maybe take a run at the Bleeping Bunny Hunt 3. These are just the ones at the top of my own personal selections. I’m sure that you too can find a hunt or two to love as well. So take a gander at all these hunts and then check a few of them out.
Today I feel like a queen… and I have just the stuff to make you feel like one too. A cart wash dress here… some group gifts there… and it will all come together like a Precious Noble Creation.
If you haven’t stopped by the Precious Designs Cart at the Cart Wash sale yet, you simply do NOT want to miss out on the offerings this designer has set out for you at just 10L each. In the picture above, I am showcasing the Fire Work dress for you in all its glory and fine detail. For just 10L the dress comes in all the standard mesh sizes, plus fitted mesh as well as custom mesh fits for Maitreya and Slink Bodies AND a color change hud with SIX color options — that’s a lot of dress for 10L!
You’ll also notice my noble gold crown, courtesy of the newly opened Noble Creations. It has rich detail fitting for any queen, princess, goddess, lover of fantasy, or roleplayer and has a nifty resize script included. It is one of several FREE Inauguration Group Gifts (the group is FREE to join) that they are offering for their store’s opening.
Noble Creations is also giving out several other fabulous FREE Inauguration Group Gifts to celebrate their opening and you won’t want to miss out. Above you can see the intricately detailed and carved Antique Coffee Table with its inlaid wood and added knobs in different colors and sizes on the sides. This was a paired gift that came with the elaborate Antique Sofa that Astrid is reclining on, which includes single sits and lays for females and males as well as a few couple cuddles. Both of these items were FREE, low prim, and also included a color change hud with four color choices!
In addition, behind Astrid you will see a rich and thick Noble Creations Mesh Curtain. Just like the Antique Sofa, this too is a FREE Inauguration Group Gift, is low prim, and comes with a color change hud with four color choices, and is also resizable to add to its versatility. Be sure to grab these gifts up before they are gone!
While you are at it, make sure to stop by the Precious Designs Cart at the Cart Wash Sale. These outfits are simply fit for a queen! Or at least any Second Life Fashionista! Check out the offerings on the cart below!

The Enchantment Hunt drew me back again, as well as the chance to show off some fabulous goodies at two other stores. If your into cosplay or fantasy roleplay… this is your month to make away like a bandit — or mermaid as the case may be!
I recently checked out the FREE Ball at Analog Dog and discovered it had been updated. There are a few new styles inside, including this great rigged mesh style called Lolly all for FREE. It comes in light reds with a color change hud and though you have to hunt for the nearly transparent bubble at the back of the sim, it’s well worth the search!
I also stopped by Oceane and played the in-store Gachas which had some really wonderful prizes for lovers of fantasy avatars! My Oceane Lauren Fantasy Skin in Blue was a 75L gacha prize and was just perfect for this underwater look — but don’t hesitate to check this one out even if blue is not your color, because the gacha had 19 total colors as possible prizes. It does not come with appliers, but don’t let that deter you. I usually have a difficult time matching skins without them, but was able to match this skin to my Slink hands within minutes because the shading near the wrists is made to blend so easily.
I also played the Oceane Fairytale Lips gacha and landed the Rainbow Rare hook line and sinker to add to my skin. Woot! It was only 50L per spin and added a nice touch to this fantasy skin.
And all mermaids have to eat, yes? If you peek at the picture below, my fun Swallow Yum Fishie (20 possible colors) was a 15L Gacha prize also from Oceane.
And the Enchantment hunt continues, but only until September 5th, so be sure to make your final rounds to pick up the fabulous gifts before you miss out. In this post, I’m showcasing a few more for you! These two poses are the FREE hunt gifts from [Black Tulip] called Ariel. Astrid’s stunning mesh mermaid tail and bra are the FREE Enchantment gift from Mer-Chandise Cove.
You’ll have to look a little closer at the pictures to catch the final gifts I’m showing, but I’ve always been a firm believer that small details are what make an avatar stand out. My pink nose piercing (which comes with a color change hud offering over 20 color options as well as options to change glow, glossiness, and and brightness) is the FREE Enchantment Hunt Gift from Gaeline Creations.
If you take a swim by no.Match, you’ll be able to pick up this gorgeously detailed Mermaids Hairpin as their FREE offering for the Enchantment Hunt. And last (but certainly not least) Astrid’s mysterious, come-hither eyes are a FREE Enchantment Hunt gift from antielle. There are six generous color choices in the package, though I’m wearing the blue.

I think I can turn just about anything into a fantasy of some sort…
… and so far I’m having a blast with the Cart Wash Sale!
There are so many amazing creators who are giving us SL fashionistas a great chance to enhance our wardrobe for minimal wallet guilt and it’s truly glorious. And the Less Than 3 cart at the Wash Sale stole my heart with its sexy Eden Jumpsuits!
What I love about this super sexy cut-out body suit is that with the right accessories and in the right environment, it works for fetish wear, casual wear, fantasy wear — you name it! And not only did it come in system layers — but for only 10L you get omega appliers to work with your mesh body as well! (I’m showcasing it here in the white version with my Maitreya Lara Mesh body.)
The body suit also comes in a gorgeous hot pink color, as well as a rich brown, and a svelte black that were all only 10L each. I’d be sure to grab up all these colors as this is a steal of a deal you won’t want to pass up!
For me the perfect accessory to make this sensuous body suit fit my fantasy wardrobe was the newest group gift from Finesmith Jewelry. The lovely lavender headpiece and necklace — aptly named Swan Garden — were striking when paired with this body suit and gave it the fantasy look I desired. The Group Gift is free if you are in the Group, and the Group is only 25L to join… well worth it in my mind considering that there are many past gifts still available to pick up. Just turn to your left as you enter the store!
Below is a picture of the other Less Than 3 Cart Wash offerings. As you can see, they are all fantastic! Be sure to stop by this fun cart and make off with the goodies!

Good morning Fabulous Friends! August is drawing to a close and a bunch of hunts will be taking their final bows this weekend, so if you have been procrastinating, it’s time to get MOVING. All that free (or nearly free) stuff is laying around just waiting for you to come by and pick it up, but time grows short.
There will, of course, be some shiny new hunts to partake of starting on Tuesday, September 1st, but I’ll get in to telling you about those when the time comes.
I hope that all of you are enjoying the hunts. Myself… I need to get out on more of them too… or at least start unpacking all the boxes from the last few hunts, which is almost as fun as Christmas morning!
Here I am again, fresh from a one-week vacation. I am sporting the official color of men’s clothing on Second Life, so you know I am bringing my “A” game. “Blog or die!” that’s my motto. I would have it tattooed on my arm, but if I did, somewhere out there is a person with a name like Alfred J. Blog who would do something publicly embarrassing. Then I would have to pay again to get the tat removed. I blog hard, but I am also very practical. Oh, and cheap, too.
First up on my list of fantastic finds is this jacket from REDPANDA. The Leather Jacket With Shirt is currently offered as a very generous FREE group gift. It is a one piece mesh combo of the jacket and the simple T-shirt, a classic look for a male avy if there ever was one. My favorite color to wear it in is black, of course. However, REDPANDA includes a hud that gives you five additional color choices, along with an additional eight colors for the T-shirt. You can also forgo the Tee entirely by choosing “No Shirt” on the hud. Four sizes and a clearly-grained leather texture with excellent details, such as visible stitching and metallic zipper teeth, make this a FREE group gift worth picking up!
So, newly back from the glorious sunshine, I figured it was time for me to go wild, and what better item to go wild in than these pants from Deadly Mouse? Their 1L Fashion Play Hunt For Him gift is a great outfit called Over Limit. It includes these crazy pants, subdued in color while the pattern is bursting with energy and life! They come in five sizes. Plus, this hunt gift also includes a great mesh hoodie in slate blue with excellent folds making it look very soft. Honestly if you like realistic looking clothes, and you want a solid blue hoodie, you are going to love the one that is in this box! I am going to give you a hint to help you find the hunt prize, which I rarely do, because I really want as many of you as possible to find this: “This hunt object is so small, it might drive you INSANE!” The hunt object is a small blue and black rectangle, and it’s easy. I promise.
I don’t wear jewelry often, so when I find something I have to like it immensely in order to consider posting it. Such is the case for the necklace I am wearing today. The Trophy Necklace from IT! (Indulge Temptation!) definitely fulfills that criterion and more. The Trophy Necklace comes with a hud giving you seven choices for the colors of the beads and it is materials enabled. This 1L Fashion Play Hunt For Him gift is the perfect accessory for the “Wild thing” mood I am in today! Pick this up to go with some casual and beachwear outfits. It’s a great find.
I am wearing another fantastic FREE skin gift from the Midnight Mania Board at Tellaq. I have mentioned them before since they are one of the best sources for men’s skins on the grid (also one of the most generous). Join the FREE group at the front of the main store and run to the back of the store to tap that MM board. Where else can you get a skin this good, and in sixteen facial hair variations with bonus goodies thrown in FOR FREE? Seriously, if you are a guy on SL, make this a regular stop, and ladies, please give it a tap now and then to help us guys out. The target is high, usually requiring 500 slaps, but the board does close regularly and the gifts are outstanding.
While you are checking out that close up of the devilishly handsome guy in the picture above, take a good look at his eyes. These are the current FREE Group Gift eyes from IKON, one of my favorite eye merchants on the grid. Just yesterday Love posted them here, but they look just as great on male avies too. These IKON Unisex Triumph Eyes in Armor have a combination of brown and tan tones in them and if you click my pic twice, you should be able to zoom in to see them in spectacular detail. The IKON group is FREE to join and I heartily encourage you to do so.
Lastly, for what seems to be a week jam-packed with great gifts and prizes to grab, Alli&Ali Designs are participating in the Fashion Play For Him Hunt as well. Their FREE gift is the stylish Roman Hair that I am wearing. It is offered in eleven colors and has an option for streaks in the hair to make it more versatile. Depending on your skin, you might want to find a hairbase from your inventory to wear with it to give it a more finished look like I did. The box does not include one, and it is not required as it looks great without one.
That’s it for this marathon post! You can tell I missed all of you since I had this many items saved up to share. We are nearing the end of the month, so if you see something you might want, go get it as soon as possible. The Fashion Play For Men Hunt ends August 31st. Until next time everyone, take care and see you on the grid!—–WHC Riler

Hey there Fabulouse Readers :) I was visiting the latest round of Shiny Shabby the other day and came across this super fun Boho Daily Basics Set by Luas. It’s just 50L per play, and in the set there are several different styles of skirts and matching tops as well as the rare collar and also a bag (which I wasn’t lucky enough to score, but the event isn’t over yet!). My favourite piece of the gacha set is actually the common floral skirt. It’s so vibrantly coloured and full!
The furnishings in my photo above are also available at 50L per play – but you’ll find the Boho Summer Gacha Set located at the Luas mainstore.
I haven’t come to you completely without freebie news!! Don’t worry – I got your back.. or your eyes or something! These very sultry IKON Triumph Eyes in the colour of Armor are the latest free group gift! Just activate your free inworld group tag and you’ll be able to pick up both the prim and mesh versions.
