Before and After

IMG_2289

Cheerio gang!

This post is not your typical before and after.  Oh gosh I *do* love me a before and after, you know when they do makeovers?  It is one of my fondest wishes to one day get a makeover by professionals.  Alas.  But I love a makeover, it’s always so exciting to see what changes they make and how awesome whomever or whatever they were working on came out!

This is kind of a reverse before and after to showcase the awesome goodies I got at the Arcade Event, courtesy of Pare’.  Now, if you want to get all the juicy details of how the new system at the arcade works, I spelled it all out in my previous post here.  With that out of the way, let’s get on to the fun stuff, the goodies!  The machine for Pare’ is called Night Crawlers and is 75L a play and I had to come back on subsequent days to get both the outfits I was lucky enough to grab.  The above was the pink, which I love.  The below photo shows the Halloween version which I was lucky enough to get on my second day try.  I was originally going to just blog the pink one, but when I got the Halloween one as well, I couldn’t resist combining the two.

So, what exactly do I call my before and after?  The first photo, above, is before the Zombie Apocalypse, the second photo before is, well, after, obviously, and our brave heroine can tell she has become outnumbered and she is about to become Zombie herself.  Notice how she is biting her lip in distress?  So she has gone from geek chic to zombie hunter.

As I stated in my previous post, you choose the size you want to play for in the machine and I chose Maitreya Lara as that is what I wear.

Lessons learned by our lovely heroine… a gun works better than an axe when fighting zombies.  Unfortunately.

Innocent Until Proven Evil

Innocent until Proven Evil

When hinges creak in doorless chambers, and strange and frightening sounds echo through the halls. Whenever candlelights flicker where the air is deathly still — that is the time when ghosts are present, practicing their terror with ghoulish delight!

-Haunted Mansion Ride, Disney parks

Hey gang!

I’m back with some ghoulish delights of my own, found at the new style Arcade Event.  The event has been updated from the old style gachas into a new system of its own, which has you grabbing a HUD as you enter, and which you wear while you shop.  When you find a machine you want to play, you connect it to the machine. (don’t spend fifteen minutes trying to find it on the machines like I did at first, each machine is on a base and at the front of each base is two buttons, one to connect your HUD.)

Once you are connected, it will show you which item has been chosen for you to play for.  If you want that item, you pay the machine (if you try to pay it without the HUD, it will refuse your money and send it back to you.), if not then disconnect and head to another machine.  If you do play, you will get that item and the HUD will show you a new, random choice.

If you want to try again, you have to wait until the next day, as it will reset at midnight, and you can get new random numbers.  If you try again that same day, you will get the same numbers.  It’s kind of fun, really (and a bit addicting!).

So I lucked out on this play, the Mikunch machine where I got this cute dress (you choose the size you want to play for on certain machines), I chose Maitreya cause that’s what body I use.   It comes with a HUD giving you a handful of color choices (black, white, red, pink).  It’s only 75L a play.

This dress gave me sort of a “Bad Seed” sort of vibe, perfect for Halloween.  She is just a sweet girl, right?  Right?!  Only time will tell!

Happy Haunting!

Weekend Sweetness

coming soon to fab free

Hey gang!

Sometimes on the weekend you just wanna lay around and feel sexy.  Or maybe just lay around and feel cute in general. ORRRR you are maybe a party animal and you just need something to wake up in and maybe try to look like you don’t have a hangover.  Whatever the case may be, I gotcha covered!  I found this cute little number (your tushie is mostly out in the back) for just those purposes (not to be confused with porpoises!  I’m sure dolphins aren’t really bothered by what we are wearing!) for free at the Sugar Dolls lucky Boards.  There is no group required, so yay!  And they have a number of cute goodies for you to grab when your letter comes up.

This one fits:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Kupra
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Physique

Happy weekend!

All twisted up

All twisted up

Good afternoon my FabFree Crew! Happy weekend to us all. Now that I have some free time on the Grid it’s time to dive into my favorite Hunt off the year: The Twisted Hunt! Yes, it’s stupid hard… and stupid frustrating and yes, I pull my hair out every year… I do love it. It’s such a challenge and finding that right cube is a real thrill. Plus, I think the designers really pull out all the stops for this hunt and we get some awesome gifts.

Like this sweet little harness and mini from Ari-Pari. The dress comes with a HUD for choices of color and three colors for the harness. Plus a switch to turn the harness on and off. Makes for a nicely versatile addition to your closet.

Just be warned. There are no clues and tons of decoys at most of the designers in this Hunt. But you can join the Twisted Hunt group for fun chat and a little help along the way. The Twisted Hunt runs until Sept 30th so get in there and get twisted!

Heyya Fab Crew! Is it too early to start thinking Fall things? Apple cider… Crisp days and chilly nights… Back to school and trees changing colors. I love Fall, it’s my favorite season. So when I saw this Autumn inspiring dress and sweater on the Uber Hunt, I knew I would be showing it off.

This is the “Mona” set from True Damage. And what a lovely free gift it is. The dress is one complete mesh piece for easy one click dressing! It comes with a great HUD to change the color of the skirt and the under tank. I picked one of the tartans because… Fall, ya’ll. 

Sizes Included

  • Alice
  • Belleza Freya
  • Maitreya
  • Maitreya Petite
  • SLink 

Adding to my “Falling” look today is my new hair from Tableau Vivant. This is “July” and you might have missed picking it up in store. The gift box is behind the front counter up on the shelf. The box is plain white and I know I overlooked it many times. But this is too pretty a hair style to miss out on. You get a nice styling HUD to push all the hair back behind your shoulders or leave one side down. Tableau Vivant makes some of the nicest hair on the Grid so don’t miss adding this free one to your wardrobe.

Dark Fae

Dark Fae

I try to be good. The Seelie Court is full of light and wonder and beautiful things. The Fae there are gentle and sometimes kind. But oh… sometimes the Darkness calls. The Unseelie Court is just as wonderous. But filled with a dangerous… deadly kind of beauty.  But doesn’t it call so sweetly…
