… all among the bloomin’ heather

... all among the bloomin' heather

Hey There FabFree! I am so happy to have made it to the weekend, didn’t this week just fly by? I am ready for some Grid time! One happy delight, just as I popped on this evening was receiving this gorgeous dress from the Midnight Mania boards over at Lunaria. I really got to know this designers work during the Fabulous Enchanted Forest Hunt and I was so glad I did. The clothes from Lunaria are just as enchanting as the decore.

Take this dress – “Fainche”. I am in love with it. The details and build are just as perfect as you can ask for and I love the deep greens and copper. It’s topped off with the included circlet in copper and agate and jade stones. It’s just magical. To get your own little bit of magic, just join the free Lunaria Group and slap that Midnight Mania board. There are currently three boards all loaded with beautiful things for us.

Sizes Included

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

I got another happy surprise when I popped over to No_Match today. This sleek sexy hair is called “No_Thorn” and it’s a free gift for everyone, no group needed. Now the hair comes with a skinny headband that you can change the color off via HUD. But I slipped my new circlet over it. The gift includes a HUD of twenty basic colors, 2 choices for bangs and twenty colors for the headband.

As with all free gifts and Midnight Mania boards, the designers can change or remove them at anytime. So hurry hurry to add these two awesome items to your closet!

I Felt Like a Fairy . . .

FabFree Forest Hunt 7-2021 Telsiope and Sissy Bar

Happy Weekend Fabulous readers! The past couple of months has brought a whirlwind of events and hunts exploding with gifts and bargains. If you’re looking for something to do, go hunting for the lavish gifts in the FabFree Enchanted Forest Hunt. It ends on July 22 so get out there & hunt! Check the hunt pics & hints here

The lovely, ethereal gown pictured on the left comes to us from The Sissy Bar – it only costs 2L. It made me think of fairies so I paired it up with these stunning wings from Telsiope’s Couture.

I liked these wings so much that I kept them on and put on the rest of the Good Fairy outfit from Telsiope’s Couture. I adore the styling and colors of the outfit, which only costs 1L.

Last but not least is this gorgeous free hair from Princess Stuff. Normally you would think – little blue haired old ladies, lol. Not with this one! It’s a really nice style and can be casual or elegant.

Have a Fabulous Weekend!

Dark Siren

Coming Soon

The Darkness Event

The Darkness is currently having their anniversary, and they have gifts at every booth! It’s awesome! I love dark style things so this event is perfect to me. Simply join the free event group and move around the event to collect up the gifts. I am showing two free gifts from this event, including:

  • A free set of red eyes from Yoshi, which has appliers for Lelutka, Omega, and Catwa appliers and it also includes BOM eyes and a set of mesh eyes (to be added to any head). 
  • The holdable cross is the free event gift from EscalateD. 

Fantasy Skins @ Lumae

I have another Enchanted Forest Hunt item to share today, which is this amazing fantasy skin I have on. This is made by the amazing Lumae, and it is one of five fantasy skins they have available on the hunt! You are looking for the little rainbow fairy, and each prize costs 5L.  Here are the hints for each skin:

  1. To sit or not to sit
  2. Tiptoe through the tulips
  3. Things are looking up in Eden
  4. The good stuff is usually kept behind here
  5. Sometimes its poison!

 Each skin comes in the same teal colour tone shown in my photo, called Siren, and it is indeed perfect for creating a siren avatar. In my photo I am wearing the Eden skin designed for Lelutka Evolution. Each of the five skins comes in BOM, and each skin is designed to work on specific heads.In the hunt key below:

  • Amesha is designed for Lelutka Evolution Heads, and it also includes Omega appliers
  • Eden is designed for Lelutka Evolution Heads, and it also includes Omega appliers
  • Jemima is designed for Paneolus Heads
  • Lofn is designed for Catwa Heads

A Unique Necklace

Finally, this necklace by Romazin is a new TeleportHub Group Gift. The TeleportHub group costs 10L to join. This necklace is not your typical elegant look, as it has fishbones and spiky metal tags on it. Nonetheless, it is a super cool find and it comes in a fatpack of colour change options, as well as 3 ways to wear it. 

Enjoy, FabFree!

Well How do You Hang YOUR Chandeliers???

giraffe_002

Geordi (the Giraffe) always holds the chandelier for me when I dance.

He’d like to dance too but he can’t

So he always makes sure the lighting is decadent

Hey gang,

Got a super fun (and cute!) gacha for you today courtesy of our friends at MoOH!  This is the Animal Lamps Gacha which costs 50L a play over at Nerdcon.  (Nerdcon runs until July 31, so you have lots of time to shop.)

My giraffe friend here is a rare but oh my gosh are there some seriously cute goodies in this, the mice with lightbulbs?  Are you kidding me????  Sooooo squeeeeeable!  They are so cute I could just eat them!!!  But I won’t.

You absolutely must go and play this (yes I am bossing you!) because everyone really needs at least one animal in their sl world holding a light for them.  They just make you smile, and who couldn’t use an extra smile or two?  Here is the key:

MOoH! Animal lamps gacha

I definitely think my blogging desk needs a mouse on it with a light, and perhaps one at the Fab Free Headquarters too.  Hmmmmm

I’m off to decorate with some cuteness!  Happy Tuesday y’all!

Sea Friends

Sea Friends

Hey FabFree! Tonight I am showing off some awesome free sea pets, how to make a free fully bento, BOM, and mesh mermaid avatar, and free skins and shapes on the FabFree enchanted forest hunt!

The Tale of the Orca and the Starfish

The first thing I want to mention are my adorable underwater pets. As you might recall, I love animals and I also love fish and underwater creatures! This amazing and precious Orca is free gift at SL18B and you have just enough time to go grab him because the event ends tomorrow. This will be my last SL18B find to share and I am super sad about it, because I just loved this event. However, this beautiful gift by Jian is simply amazing. The Orca swims along with your avatar and it even does water tricks! It is just magical watching her/him swim underwater. Go grab this Orca for free at Jian’s booth at SL18B before it’s too late. 

The other cute little animal shown in my post today is the adorable starfish, who you will see has little cute, pouting eyes. This is a fish I caught with my 7Seas casual fishing rod for free. The rod costs 99L to buy, but you can catch free outfits with it (remember Aline and Arielles recent Sn@tch fishing post here?). While waiting for outfits, I have caught a lot of fish too and they are actually really cute pets! Many are animated, can swim around you, or you can rezz them in a tank or aquarium. They are too cute to delete. I just love this little starfish guy, and you can see a close-up of his little face below. 

Free Mermaids, anyone?

The other finds I want to share today are items that can be used to make a full, free BOM, Bento mesh mermaid avatar. 

The OpenMerTail

My mermaid tail is a free fully bento (moving) mesh tail- how cool is that! It’s like a total extension of your avatar. This tail moves and twists like a mesh avatar but the trick is to get the right bento ao for it to make full use of the bento features. The tail also includes fins which can be worn or detached. There is more information about this awesome bento, BOM mesh tail in the package, but it is all totally free on the Marketplace. This tail can be used on male, female and non-binary avatars. Because the OpenMerTail is its own mesh avatar part, you need to find and use BOM skins designed for the tail itself, and there is also a pack for creators and designers to make new skins for it! The tail is a full perm item. Note that a bento mermaid AO is not included in the package. 

Sizes Included

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Belleza Freya
  • Belleza Jake
  • Legacy Athletic
  • Must Trade Bara

OpenMerTail - Fullperm Bento Mermaid Tail

And here is a list of more free items I used to make my mermaid avatar:

  • I mentioned above how you will need skins for your new tail. Motley Fluke has several skins for the tail available for free on their marketplace store. The blue tail skin I am wearing can be purchased here for free. These tail skins are BOM and work only on the free mermaid tail advertised above. 
  • The stars pasties used to cover up my chest are another freebie on the marketplace. These stars are by Yama’s Ideas and they are unrigged, resizable mesh items. I just resized them manually to fit my avatar perfectly. The mesh pasties come in many different colours. 
  • The little bubbles below are a free animation by Stargaze on the marketplace designed for mermaid avatars. These are so realistic and perfect for creating realism of moving in the water. 
  • Finally, the skin used on my mermaid avatar is a free prize on the FabFree Enchanted Forest Hunt. This is one of several hunt prizes from 7 Deadly S[K]ins. The natural skin, untouched with no makeup, can be seen in my photo below. I am also wearing a free shape included in the hunt, but I just edited the tummy of the shape to fit the mermaid tail. The vendor ad of all the 7DS skins available for free on the hunt is posted below. These skin prizes are BOM and they include shapes and tattoos for Lelutka Evo elf ears as well. 

Mer Detail

☑ Enchanted Forest Hunt ☑ 5 skin boxes WITH shape included hidden in the store

When you add all these parts together, you will have a full bento, mesh, BOM mermaid avatar! Enjoy the mermaid and the orca, FabFree!

The first is my gorgeous green dress. This is “The Enchanted Forest Dress” from Phoebe. I am just in love with this dress. The green is deep and rich and it comes with a sheer ‘over dress’ which makes it look fluttery and soft. Either piece can be worn separately too.

Sizes Included

Next is the beautiful ‘Fantasy Harp’ from Harambee. The harp comes with three poses for playing and it does play a lovely melody. I need to adjust the harp itself to fit me… I am apparently a bit short… But happily, the harp is easily modified. For a little hunting and 5 little lindens, this is a great prize!

The FabFree Enchanted Forest Hunt runs until July 22nd so get going!

Holo Angel

Heyya FabFree! Another week is starting up and that means the time when some of our biggest events will be packing up and disappear for another year. Like the Second Life Birthday bash going on till July 6th. It only leaves us a week to do all that shopping and gift getting! So let’s get it going!

Today I found my entire outfit for free at the SLB18 Shop and Hop.  Wings and hair too!  First, my hologram dress is from Salt & Pepper. This is the “Pricilla Dress” and not only do you get the sleek hologram but you in fact … get a whole fatpack! That’s twenty eight solids, patterns and hologram colors! Plus seven metals for the chain. 

My sleek hair style is also a gift from Mina. The unnamed hair is a soft pastel blend of colors that I thought complemented my holo look very well. 

And lastly, my gorgeous wings are from Riot. The “Cupid’s wings SLB18” come in two sizes ( I’m wearing the larger “men’s” size) and two levels of materials. They are rigged some you can’t move them at all. They do slowly wave in and out much like butterfly wings.

All of these gifts are at the respective designers booths at the SLB18 Shop and Hop.

Dress – Salt & Pepper in the Jubilant SIM

Hair – Mina – in the Gilded SIM

Wings – Riot – in the Jubilant SIM

Hunting for Fairies!

ap_007

So as you are all aware of (or you should be!) the Fab Free Enchanted Forest Hunt is in full swing!  It is a theme I love because I am all about fantasy!  When I do a photo, I feel like I am creating a character and that character has a story!  For instance, my character today has some sort of mystical thing going on, her outfit, her magical sphere, where she is (some secret forest place?).

I know you want all the deets so lets do it.  😉  Both my items can be found in the Fab Free Enchanted Forest Hunt, so get your hunting shoes on (or do it barefoot, Like I do!) and do some hunting!

Fairy Hunting!

My dress is one of five from Ruxy, it fits Matireya and Legacy.  All her hunt gifts are only 1L and all very cute!

My orb/sphere is from Afterparty who makes so much fun glowy stuff.  This is a 5L gift.

How to get them?  Just find the little rainbow fairy hiding in the store (some stores have several!) pay them and they will give you a gift as a thank you for finding them!  Such cute, generous little souls!

Other Yummy Finds

My hair is a freebie from the Hair Fair (goes until July 4!) made by No.Match.  There is no group required to grab the gifts at the Hair Fair!

The little fireflies glowing around my head are a free group gift from Persefona.  That group is free to join and she’s got lots of fun goodies for taking photos at her shop, if you have never been there!

Last the little garden area behind me (not the trees, just the cool colorful part!) is a free SL18B gift (no group required!) from Dreamland Designs!

Heyya FabFree! I’m back to being my own sweet self after my trip to the dark side. Certainly, putting on todays outfit helped change my mind back to being a creature of light and happiness. 😉

This is the “Enchanted Rose Set” from Melt and it’s allllll free for the FabFree Enchanted Forest Hunt. Can you tell yet that I am enjoying the heck out of this Hunt? I loved hunting in the green space of Melt’s SIM along an enchanting path with bunnies and deer and unicorns and so, many. flowers! It’s gorgeously done and a pleasure to walk through.

There are five pieces to find to complete the set and I am very impressed with the design and quality. I plan to tuck this beauty into my closet for my RP times.

The FabFree Enchanted Forest Hunt runs until July 22!
