Heyya Fabfree

I don’t know about your part of the real world right now, but mine is freakin’ hot. So of course this is the time the air conditioning decides to fry itself. I need to find a cool pool and relax! If only the real life was as easy to that as Second Life.  I’d be right at home with this super cute pool floatie from Bad Unicorn. The ‘Mega Unicorn Floatie’ is one of the current Group Gifts in the main store and it was so cute I had to grab it. The floaty comes in a wearable and a rezzable version and only takes up five land impact so I have him bobbing around my pond to make me smile.

I needed a nice new swimsuit to compliment my floatie friend and Pixal Perfect has this hot little number as the 1L prize for the Around the Grid in 80 Days Hunt. This is the ‘July Swimsuit’ and not only do you get the cute suit, you get a HUD to change the color of the top with four choices. The suit comes in the standard Mesh sizes XXS-L as well as in appliers for SLink Physique and Hourglass. The hunt runs until

Topping off my summertime cool is my new hairstyle from Mello, a ‘new to me’ designer. This is ‘detox’ and it comes with a HUD for seventeen wild and pastel colors. Detox is one of the current Group Gifts at Mello and the group is free to join!

I think I’m just gonna chill here for awhile……

Your Friday Hunt Report

pastelpartyhuntIt’s Friday, so time once again to let you in on all the hunts going on right now, PLUS the ones that will be happening in the weeks to come. So much hunt goodness… so little time!

You’ve got about a week left for all of the July hunts, so you might want to check out hunts like the Pastel Party Hunt, Beached Bunny, or Around The Grid in 80 Days (now in its fourth installment). I’m also curious about the Raining Tacos Hunt. That sounds weird but fun to me.

If you poke the names here in this post, you’ll receive all the pertinent information about each hunt.

You say you’re new to hunting? Need help learning the ropes?
Both FabFree and HUNT SL have pages full of tips to help you get going. I recommend them to novice and veteran hunters alike.

Catch Me in your Dreams

Catch Me in Your Dreams

25L Tuesdays are a dream come true for roleplayers in Second Life… though I think this special item I came across today would please just about anyone. On a Lark has a pretty camisk out that roleplayers may just want to add to their wardrobe… and those of you who wear modern clothes could wear it with a pair of jeans and call it a pretty shirt. This is the “Envelop” top by On a Lark.

You can buy this pretty camisk today in a multitude of colors (and I do mean a lot of colors) for just 25L each. It comes in all your standard mesh sizes, as well as Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Belleza, Physique, and Hourglass, and each of the fits comes in two different textures for each color — a plain and a damask. Beware if you wear it alone! It covers the front but not the hiney (*winks*). I’m showing you a picture at the bottom of this post so you can see the pretty bow in the back that is the icing on the cake so to speak.

Pixel Box offered a weekend gift of a necklace Dreamcatcher that I added to my pretty look. This is a FREE TO ALL gift that you can pick up at the store. Sunday was supposed to be the last day that the gift was out, but when I checked this morning, it was still there… so I recommend haste if you like it and don’t want to miss out!

A Girl and Her Bird

A Girl and Her Bird

It’s Saturday! And that means 30L specials abound… but I also have a special freebie for you today and a 1L goodie as well to round out a roleplay look that you won’t want to miss out on.

I stopped by Torvis Weapons today and discovered this beautiful red silk called Vidina on special for 30L. It includes the fitmesh camisk which you also get in Maitreya, Belleza, and Slink fits plus the gold bracelets, gold belt and a gold collar (collar not shown). For 30L, if you are an avid roleplayer, this is a steal!

Every archer needs a bow, and I found a very nice realistic one on the Marketplace for only 1L. It has both a scripted and nonscripted version in the box so you can save on scripts if you roleplay in a “write only” area, or if you roleplay in an area where GM weapons are used, simply use the GM version of the weapon. This “Deathrays’ simple bow” makes a nice prop and is easy to use. It was only 1L on the Marketplace!

If you are a photographer in Second Life, you might also want to stop by Lorien today and pick up the 10 pack of “Naughty Girl” poses that are out. I am showing you one from the pack that you can get today for just 30L. These are very nicely done and for only 30L that’s just 3L per pose!

A Girl and Her Bird 2

The last item I have to show you today is very special indeed. It’s nice to have a shoulder pet in rp, but realistic ones can be very expensive. Grizzly Creek currently has two on the marketplace that are FREE and fully functional with beautiful animations and movement.

I’m showing you the Cutthroat Finch but there is another beautiful bird you can pick up for FREE if you check out their store, as well as many other high quality pets for regular price. You might find yourself quite addicted to these gorgeous babies! This particular pet can be rezzed or worn, and is only 3 prim when rezzed! The shoulder pet itself is a low lag 6 scripts.

Your Friday Hunt Report

flirty-summer-hunt-logoGood Morning Fabulous Fans! There are lots of fun hunts going on right now, so if you love fabulously free stuff, there’s no better time to take up the sport of hunting.

The Paws, Tails & Whiskers Hunt and the Stars and Stripes Hunt end today, so if you want in on those it’s time to jump up off the couch and grab your hunting bag.

A couple of hunts just started today. You can be the first kid on your block to participate. They are the Flirty Summer Hunt and the Raining Tacos Hunt. Who doesn’t like tacos?!

Not a Wall Flower

Not a Wall Flower

Call me old school if you will, but Casablanca is one of my favorite movies… right up there with Citizen Kane. So when I realized there was a Casablanca remake Sim in Second Life I knew I wanted to check it out. Loki got there before me, but my turn has long been overdue… I just hadn’t found the right outfit… until now.

The Moda Midnight Mania board locked down again yesterday, giving me another set of great FREE shoes for my slink feet. These heels are stunning and come in white with a hud to change the metal on the underside (gold, silver, or bronze). If you missed them when they locked down yesterday, they are there also again today, only in a slightly modified version… so they are worth locking down again today if you picked them up yesterday. I’ve heard a few people say they had some delivery issues. Not to worry, just hit the redelivery terminal and they will be sent to you!

And then I realized that I’d missed the June group gift for TBO The Beautiful Ones! But luckily it is still out! This Venus Dress in Turquoise is still out, though I’m not sure for how long. It comes in all your standard fitmesh sizes and also supports all the major mesh body types like Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza. It has a beautiful front, and equally dramatic back (with a plunging back… phew… sexy) and fits like a dream.

There are several ways you can pick up this stunner. If you are a group member (the group membership is 25L) the dress is yours FREE, just pay the terminal 1L and your 1L is immediately refunded and the dress is delivered to you. You can also opt to pay the special price of just 10L if you don’t have any group space, or wish to opt out of joining the group. OR if you are already a subscriber, you can click the subscriber and the dress will be delivered to you completely FREE, no group required. Note: this does not work for new subscriber members, you must have been a past subscriber, so this is a good reason to subscribe and stay a subscriber!

Not a Wall Flower 2

Though I admit that Casablanca the movie was in black and white… I always imagine it being a colorful world. When I saw this FREE group gift flower headpiece by Finesmith (the group is FREE to join), I knew I had to add it to my look… it just had the right feel to finish off what I wanted to feel (yes lots of feels in there right?). Because of course at Casablanca there can never really be any wall flowers… not really… or if they are, they are wall flowers in disguise, pretending to be wall flowers when they are really not. Or that’s somehow the way I imagine that world. “Play it again, Sam!”

I have always found something magical in Second Life about dancing. And in real life, when I have gone to festivals, I have always been taken in by the beauty of different types of dancing. Veil dancers, especially, have taken my interest.

Right now, there are four gifts available for FREE at [House of Ruby] — two each for both men and women. They are beautiful, classy bodysuits that could be used for lingerie, or as depicted above, for something more exotic even.

If you join the [House of Ruby] group (it is a FREE join) you can get a matching men and women’s Ruby Leopard bodysuit or unitard for FREE. The women’s suit includes a small top for modesty. These suits do not include system layers, but you get Omega and Slink appliers for each.

If you hit the subscriber (again this is FREE), you’ll be gifted with the suit that you see Loki wearing, except that the difference is the color — it is the “Leopard” color instead. Just as the group gift includes both a male and female version, the subscriber includes both a male and female version as well.

Nerdy Girl in-world Closing Sale

Super Heroes

It’s hard to see much beloved stores close their doors in Second Life… and Nerdy Girl has announced that she will be moving the in-world store to the Marketplace to pursue new adventures after July 12th. In the meantime, as a bit of a farewell gift to all the loyal customers who love nerdology, the in-world store is having a last hoorah and closing sale before it moves to the marketplace… a bonus for all of us loyal shoppers:)

Nerdy Girl has put out all the old gifts for one thing, so if you are a group member, stop by and pick up any you missed (the join fee is only 25L if you are not already a member, and with all the goodies, it’s worth joining).

In addition, all store merchandise is priced at 25L or lower, excluding gachas. In salute to the Nerdy ways, Loki and I decided to go as Nerd Heroes. I am not convinced that he got it quite right, but then he thinks I didn’t do it right either… we agreed to disagree, since Rainbow Brite is my favorite, and he said Superman was super.

My rainbow bright costume includes the mesh skirt, applier top and leggings, and the bow (which comes in a left, center, or right fit). For 25L, it’s quite a deal!

Loki’s mesh hoodie in all the standard sizes is quite a find indeed, as there is a texture change hud included. The hud changes the t-shirt and hoodie separately, for lots of nerd fun… hero symbols on the shirt and hoodie all separate for whatever hero you want to be that day. For 25L, there’s a hero in every guy just waiting to come out!

Water Nymph

Water Nymph
Hi There Fab Free I’ve got a Fabulous find to share with you on this Friday. One of the best things about Fridays in Second Life? Why Fifty Linden Fridays, of course! There are lots of great finds every Friday for just 50 lindens. This Friday has some awesome finds, one of which is this stunningly exotic skin from Plastik. You’ll actually find two Fifty Linden Friday sets at Plastik for 50 lindens each today only. One is an outfit set that includes 2 tops and a skirt. While the outfit is beautiful, I was so taken with the Special Edition skin that I just had to share it with you. This FLF offer is a pack that includes this amazing skin in a male and female version along with every applier Plastik makes for their skins, and of course classic system layers. You’ll also find mesh eyes, makeup layers, and nail appliers for both Slink and Maitreya in the package. I felt like a gorgeous creature in this highly detailed skin, and of course, since it’s summer I wanted to be near the water. Remember, this awesome deal is available today only for Fifty Linden Fridy, run! hehe I also included a copy of the vendor photo for the special FLF skin below so you can see both versions, there’s also a list of all appliers included.

For a little extra detail, I also included this beautiful FREE flower crown I found at Color Me Project from Indulge Temptation. I was hoping to play up the fantasy aspect of the skin from Plastik, and I think this detailed accessory did the job perfectly! This FREE gift is available at the Color Me Project landing point. You’ll need to join the Color Me Project group, which is FREE to Join. With this fabulous gift from Indulge Temptation you’ll get a hud that allows you to size the crown and adjust the color of the metal parts only.

Dragon Lord

Greetings FabulouslyFree Friends,

Dragon Lord

Julianna had to twist my arm to get me to try some of these ‘role play’ outfits at first. And, frankly, some of what’s out there on the Grid is… well… less than elegant. However this one from Sparrow By Design is rather suave. This is “DragonLord” and it’s the free prize for the Silk Road Hunt. The coat and the pants are separate items but they share the same alpha layer. Each piece comes as one FitMesh item. I found the FitMesh to be extremely well made and fit very well indeed.

My … unorthodox head gear is from Aii: The Ugly and Beautiful. I protested but Julianna insisted that a dragon Lord needed horns.  At least these are very very impressive. The “Holy Devil” horns come in both gold and silver and are unrigged Mesh for ease of adjustment. You can find them as a free gift for the subscribers group near the front of the store.

Lastly, my prop and pose are from the retirement sale going on now until the end of the month at Exposeur. Sadly, the shop will be closing for good though the Marketplace should remain available. All items are on sale for some very deep discounts.

The Silk Road Hunt and the Exposeur closing sale both end on June 30th so don’t delay.

I remain most sincerely yours,

Gabe's Signiture
