Break Down

Break Down

There are times when a gentleman must take matters into his own hands. No matter your breeding or status, when your airship’s boiler goes out… you pull on a sturdy pair of gloves, secure a tool box and sort things out.

ContraptioN, obviously understands this because this month’s free group gift for the L’Homme readers is all about getting your hands dirty yet remaining a gentleman.

This is the Thibaut waist coat “work” and it’s a generous free gift from ContraptioN. The ‘work’ designation being the soot and grime around the sleeves. Signs of honest work, if you ask me.  Equally well used are the leather gloves I’m sporting. These are the ‘Dapper Dandy’s Gloves’ also designated ‘Soot’.   Both of these gifts will be available until the next round of L’Homme.

Sizes Included (waist coat)

  • Belleza Jake

  • Signature – Gianni
  • SLink Male Physique

Dreamer

Dreamer

For I have always been a seeker, a dreamer, and a ponderer on seeking and dreaming.

~ H.P. Lovecraft

Seeking and dreaming. I like that. And here I thought Lovecraft was all demons and Deep Ones.  And if you thought the Call of Lovecraft event was all hunt you’d be mistaken too. I found a lovely Victorian look Gacha from Antaya there!

This is the Clementine Gacha and amazingly, it’s only 25L per play! Look at this gorgeous gown… 25L! In fact, I put this entire outfit together for just 75L in pulls. I wasn’t able to get the little top hat fascinator but I was lucky enough to pull the Rare Gown.  Everything is so beautifully made, every detail is perfect! Add a few holiday touches and this would be perfect for Christmas, wouldn’t it?!

Sizes Included

  • Maitreya

The Call of Lovecraft runs until November 21 so don’t miss out.

I will go where crows go…

I will go where crows go

Hello again, FabFree. I guess you can tell by my picture tonight, I’m really getting into the spirit of the holiday now. I love this spooky yet so elegant classic gown. I feel like a glamourous fem fatale who is surly up to no good. But you’re going to love how she drags you down.

… and I will know what crows know

This is the ‘Murder of Crows’ gown from Silvan Moon Design. You can get this stunning Victorian gown for free if you’re doing the Fallen gods Prophecy Hunt. I know you only have a few days to get in on this hunt but it’s so worth it. The quality of the gifts is just awesome!  As you can certainly see here. ‘Murder’ comes with the gorgeous gown, the lofty hat and a detachable long train. It truly is a stunner.

Fantasy Retreat

Fantasy Retreat

I really do still love 25L Tuesday. The deals and bargains can’t be beat. Plus, some of my absolute favorite designers often have something for the Tuesday round up.  One thing I kinda miss, however is the theme. 25L Tuesday used to be all role play items and clothes… I liked that.  But… all things change and move on.  So you can image how tickled I was to find Kegel Clothing offering this awesome fantasy ‘olden days’ dress – Louisa.

Louisa is such a great find for us RPers. The build is so pretty and the details are spot on. I am so happy with this designer and the dress itself.  Kegel Clothing is all over fantasy and RP items and outfits. There’s even a great selectin for our guys! Y’all gotta check it out. Now, Louisa does also come in a beautiful claret red and a black version each for the regular price of 250L. Only the blue version is on sale. But you can see… wow, whata sale!

Sizes Included

  • One mesh size for Maitreya and Legacy

Enhancing my fantasy mood, is this rustic little shed with its benches and a pile of cozy blankets. Someone even left some mugs of hot cider for us! The “Winter Retreat Shed” from Roawenwood is also on the 25L Tuesday list today and I really love it. Like everything from Roawenwood, the retreat is perfectly built and a stunning addition to my little forest. 

Some stores leave their 25L treasures up until next Tuesday… some disappear at the stroke of midnight. So be sure to get moving on this one, Fab Folks!

Fallen

Fallen

Oh I do love the Halloween hunt season here on the Grid. I am constantly amazed by the talented designers and the awesome clothes and jewelry and items they give us. For…free! I’ve done just enough building on second Life to know that this stuff is NOT easy so I hope you all thank your favorite designers and spend a Linden or two while you hunt.

SO, let’s talk Hunts. I’ve been bopping all over the Grid this week on Fallen gods Prophecy Hunt. Now, you only have until the 31rst to grab the HUD and finish the Hunt but that’s easily done. The Prophecy Hunt is a bit of a different breed of Hunt. First, you collect the Hunt HUD at the Fallen gods Sim. While you’re there, be sure to take a look at the special faire going on there.  Anyway, grab the HUD and teleport to the first store, find the hunt object ( An all – seeing eye) then you teleport to the next store. You don’t get the prize for each store till you complete the entire Hunt. The last teleport takes you to a massive prize room where you can pick and choose which ever free prizes you want or click the central pillar to receive all the prizes at once. Now, I know this sounds odd… but it works. The hunt objects are the fun challenging not the pull your hair out Twisted Hunt challenging. There were a couple of store that were… um… rather difficult. But, in the end, it was worth the frustration.

Having said all that… ya’ll still here… okay… Let’s look at some prizes.

My gorgeous gown is from Secrets of Gaia, this is the Asteria gown and it is stunning. I know my photo is gettin’ kinda artsy so I’m tossing the hunt photo for the prizes so you can see them. But I don’t think the Hunt photo does it justice. This thing is swoon worthy!

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique 

My new jewels are from On a Lark. The ‘Gotland Orb’ s included HUD has 14 choices of jewel color and three metals. I foresee using this one a lot!

Lastly, I have a nifty new toy: The Prophecy Star from Jinx. The Star has it’s own hold animation and it revolves and drifts in a random dance over your hand. It’s really fascinating to watch.

So… go grab your HUD and get hunting. Hmmm the veils of the other world are parting and I forsee ….. you! In the prize room… grabbing your 55 absolutely free fantastic prizes!

L’automne Fantastique

L'automne Fantastique

Not all things Halloween have to be creepy or spooky. Haunting can also describe something beautiful. I think this fairy-creature-like doll is both creepy and cute, duality at its finest.

Gifting us some whimsy for this mystical magical season, COCO has this delicate looking jointed bunny girl doll avatar as a free group gift. This bento mesh avatar comes in a complete head-to-toe form, including the dress and leg-wraps as one piece. The included hair is separate, and there is an example shape included as well. There’s also a “human” ears version of the doll included in the package. The COCO group is free to join making this strange and lovely gift an amazing freebie.

In addition to the avatar, I picked up the free group gift crown set at Birth. It was originally shown on the blog here. This gift comes in the static worn version shown, and a floating/spinning worn version as well. The Birth group is free to join also, so don’t hesitate to pick up this pretty accessory.

Lastly, the held pumpkin lantern is a Marketplace find by Bowtique. It has its own hold pose, and can be turned off or on by clicking it. You can get yours for just 25 linden on the Marketplace.

No Salvation

No Salvation

“Hell is empty and all the devils are here.” – William Shakespeare 

As we seem to be rapidly approaching my favorite holiday I was excited to see the new group gift at Caboodle. The Caboodle group gift is a short nun’s habit, which lends itself perfectly to creating a creepy demonic possession look. Inspired by the idea I added the new group gift tattoo by Letis, the Pumpkin Hunt gift by Blackstone at Swank, and some inexpensive Marketplace finds from Corvus, Mary, R.A.D. and Glow Up. I think this look would fit right in at just about any haunted house. Time to get terrifying!

Caboodle

Truly this nun’s habit group gift at Caboodle was the inspiration for creating my demonic nun look just in time for Halloween. The Caboodle group has a join fee of 100 linden. The habit can be repositioned, and sized. I wore it with a simple hair-base. Also, don’t forget to pick up the previous group gifts still available at Caboodle.

Letis

Letis put out this perfect-for-Halloween unisex spiderweb upper body tattoo as their latest group gift. The Letis group is free to join, so don’t miss out on this very well done tattoo.

Appliers/Layers Included: Omega Evolved, Maitreya, Slink, Legacy, Belleza, Signature, BOM Layers (35%,50%,75%100%)

Blackstone

I mentioned the Pumpkin Hunt happening at Swank in my recent post “Let Me Show You the Way.” The dress and horns I used for this look are from the Pumpkin Hunt gift by Blackstone. This gift includes a full look with a dress, horns, and a matching devil tail (not shown), as well as a HUD with several colors for the dress. You can pick this gift up for free at Swank. You’ll need the free Swank group tag, I’ll link that group below. This dress is fitted for Maitreya Lara only.

Swank Group – secondlife:///app/group/35fc648a-c80a-bd06-7b1c-0385c52e0fc1/about

Marketplace Finds

The gifts from Caboodle and Letis were a good start for this scary nun I’d imagined, the Marketplace was helpful for much of the rest.

Corvus – No possessed being would be complete without darkened circles around the eyes. I picked up the Corvus Demon Eyeshadow BOM layer for 30 linden on the Marketplace.

Mary – I also found a Halloween gift by Mary from 2019 on the Marketplace. The little goth cross tattoo comes in an Omega applier and is 1 linden on the Marketplace.

Glow Up – For some added gore I picked up a little nose-bleed drip by Glow Up on the Marketplace for free. It comes in a BOM layer only.

R.A.D. – Finally, the bloody sewn-shut lips are a Marketplace dollarbie by R.A.D. This gory costume essential comes in BOM layers and an Omega applier.

Alright all you creeps and ghouls, I really hope you enjoy these freaky fun freebies and cheapies. It was a lot of fun putting this super creepy look together for Halloween. Have fun out there!

Crowned

Crowned

Hello again, FabFree. After Aline’s post about all the great loot over at the Halloween Shop and Hop I had to go check it out myself. And if you haven’t gone over yet… why not? There are so many gifts, plus gachas and great deals to be had.

Crowning Glory 

Let’s start at the top, shall we. I am sporting the October Group Gift from Luas and it’s just spectacular! This is the Solar Crown and you can pick it up for free if you are a member of the Luas group. While there is a one time fee to join the group, it’s well worth it just for the tons of free gifts. There’s even a whole wall of past gifts to pick from. The crown comes with a HUD to change the colors of thermoses, the halo and the horns.

Hoppin’ an’ Shoppin’ 

Now for our Shop and Hop gifts. My new hair style is the free gift from Sintiklia called “Hazel”.  I love the wispy bangs which you can turn on and off if you please. You also get a HUD for the “Classy” set of 32 colors. Plus, you get a Tinter so you can get that perfect shade you want.

My new spell binding top and shimmery skirt are both from the “Fionna” gacha in the Annex shop. For just 25L per play, I was able to pull the top and the skirt in my favorite color: purple, of course! Now if purple isn’t your thing… Fionna comes in six colors for you to choose from.

At the end of day

At the end of day

Okay, FabFree… all together now… “THANK YOU ALINE!!!!!”

And why, you may ask, are thanking Aline? Other than the fact that she is an awesome person, and a really awesome Blogger, annnd she keeps us all going hereon the blog?  Because A few days ago she popped over and poked me about the Engine Room Event. I had forgotten all about it! She even said “There’s a ton of stuff there that just scream “Juli!” And wow, she is so right! I even found a gorgeous Gacha set for Gabe.

SteamFlirty

This is the “Abigale Set” from Devious Minds. It’s a 75L per play Gacha at the Engine Room. I can’t tell you how much I love this set. The flirty ruffle skirt, the blouse with full sleeves, and boots and the corset are all separate pieces. Plus I was lucky enough to pull the Rare Corset. In all there are a ton of colors for the items and I may be heading back to see if I can pull a couple more colors. Yep, I like it that much!

Sizes Included

  • Maitreya

Now Pru showed y’all a bunch of the free gifts at this anniversary round of Engine Room. I had to include a couple more in my outfit. First are my really cool sun glasses. These are the “Round Glasses” from Art & Gears and they are free to everyone in the free to join Second Life Syndicate group.  My cute gears choker is another free gift at the event from Rabbithouse.

Get Wrecked

Gabriel’s handsome shirt  and vest combo is another great Engine Room Gacha. This is the “Gentlesteam” from Rekt. The shirt and vest are done as a combo but each shirt comes with either a black tie or a tie the same color as the vest. His steams and gears new arm is also from the Gentlesteam gacha. The mechanical arms come in several metals and in the left or right versions. All that for an easy 50L per pull.
