Hello Hello Fab Free’rs! I hope each of you has been having a great week so far. Mine has been a tad hectic irl, but that’s what Second Life is for! I’m excited to be here with you to share the latest FREE group gift from the FREE-to-join group at Pacagaia Creations. Before I continue I want to specify that there are 2 groups at Pacagaia Creations. This gift is for the group that is FREE, not the VIP group which has a join fee.  I also picked up a cute little collar on the Marketplace for cheap.

Ruffled

This sweet and sexy skirt and bustier combo is the FREE group gift for the FREE-to-join group at Pacagaia Creations. The set is fully mesh and comes in several sizes. Also included is a color change hud that gives you 3 options, the black with pink ruffles shown, a pale pink version with a floral ruffle, and a deep red with a black ruffle. You can also change the skirt and top separately.

Mesh Sizes Included: Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Maitreya Lara

Tiny Heart

Feelin’ a little feline, I poked through the Marketplace in search of a cute collar/choker to wear with the outfit from Pacagaia Creations. Fortunately I found one! This cute little choker is just 20 lindens on the Marketplace from a shop called Layla’s Workshop. It has a simple heart dangle and is equipped with resize scripts.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Soft Golds

Fall Colors_001

The weather has cooled down the last few nights where I live… cold winds ushered in by thunderstorms. It’s made me think that fall will perhaps be here sooner rather than later. But that’s okay. I’ve always enjoyed the autumn breezes and warm browns and oranges that mark the season. It’s not quite cold enough for sweaters yet, but it’s cool enough I’m wanting to start my fall wardrobe, so I picked up a gift that tickled my fancy for that!

Soft Golds

I stopped by Guilia Design and picked up the Third Life Group gift called “Cherry Gold”. I’m not too sure about the name as the gift includes these great black leather pants plus this gold tones snake skin top and a separate mesh belt, but I’m going with it because I really love the outfit!

Cherry Gold comes in all the standard mesh sizes plus quality alpha layers for system bodies (if you need it). Remember, the Third Life group is only 10L to join if you are not already in it, so this gift will only cost you 10L. And the Third Life Group gives you access to gifts in stores all over the grid, so it’s well worth joining!

Fall Colors_002

Change of Pace

I don’t usually show off collar gifts, as they are not my personal style… but I love the quality of clothing and items at Salt & Pepper and I think the creator turns out some truly beautiful gifts. I wanted to make sure and share this new gift that Salt & Pepper has out for group members, as it’s incredibly well made and really lovely.

The “Toy” Collar comes in two versions “His Toy” or “Her Toy” and both are fully customizable with a hud that allows you to change the color of both the leather and the metal. (I’ve included a picture of the advertisement below to show the options). It is also resizable making it unisex as well. You’ll need to click the menu to find the resize option. It is RLV enabled for those who are interested.

The Salt & Pepper Group does have a one-time join fee of 300L, however there are quite a few very nice past group gifts still out for you to enjoy, and the creator is generous about putting out new, quality group gifts as well, making the fee worth it in my opinion!

Sci-Fi and Sunglasses

Sci Fi... and Boots

I’m feeling a little sci-fi and fantasy all at the same time today… and the elements of the gifts I picked out could be used for different genres of everyday wear or roleplay gear depending upon how you paired them with outfits or other details (I think that’s why I love these gifts so much).

The Heart Shaped Sunglasses Hunt started today and I think there are some really fabulous gifts to be had. I’m showing off two of them in this post alone, and hope to show off a few more that I have my eye on.

Thigh High

These Thigh High boots by Have Unequal immediately caught my attention and won my approval and I was thrilled when I tried them on. They say “wool” but to me they look leather with a “wool” sock sort of sticking out the top. They will only cost you 5L and a little hunting time at the Have Unequal main-store and when you unpack the box you’ll find boots to fit Maitreya, Slink Hourglass, and Slink Physique mesh bodies. These boots would be slick for some Sci-fi roleplay or other types of RP… or just for wearing and not roleplaying 😉

Speaking of Hearts

Since I was on the heart trail, I also picked up the 5L prize from Kotte, which happens to be this great pair of heart shaped sunglasses in “sea”. They come with a hud that allows you to change the metal detailing on the glasses to either silver or gold. If you click on the flickr picture and zoom in, you can see that their is a little Gothic cross on the sides of the glasses.

A touch of fantasy

While I was at Kotte I accidentally scrolled my mouse and cammed inside another store and found my camera locked onto a group gift at a new-to-me store called {Ghoul}. Immediately I knew I had to have the Dragonglass Back Gems! They emit a soft purple light and would be great for fantasy, medieval, or sci-fi roleplay… or just for fun. The group is 50L to join, and there was another group gift beside the back gems, a photo body glow. The gems come in sizes to fit several mesh bodies, including a male mesh body!

Back Gem Sizes Available:

  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Isis & Freya
  • Belleza – Jake

Fab Free Designer of the Week – 08/26/2017 – Tiar

Tiar 1Hello Hello Fab Free’rs! It’s the end of the week and that means a new designer post! This weeks featured designer is none other than Tiar. For those in the Gorean role-play/lifestyle communities in Second Life I would consider Tiar among the top shops for male and female Gorean clothing, as well as some Gorean furniture. That said, Tiar also has a wide range of urban clothing for both men and women as well as contemporary furniture. It’s another one of those shops with something for everyone.

Tiar’s Courtyard

I purposefully neglected to do my usual exterior photo for Tiar because there is just so much to see.  If you wander through the store on your own, you’ll quickly find the room with new releases, and re delivery terminals. In this area of Tiar there is a daily sales item for just 60 lindens (see the bottom photo above). The Tiar landing point is a center courtyard with 4 corners. One corner has the general information about associated groups and events, along with several sale items. You’ll notice the little footprint style markers along the ground leading to the sales boards, most of which are 25 or 35 lindens.

Another corner has a few more sales items, a big raffle board, and a large teleport board that will let you easily navigate Tiar’s many departments. You’ll want to use this teleport board to travel to the Midnight Madness area. Additionally, you’ll find Tiar’s gacha yard sale in this cool little courtyard, along with KittyCats for sale. If you collect KittyCats or enjoy hunting through gacha yard sales you won’t want to skip these.

Tiar 2
Once you’ve used the teleporter in the courtyard at Tiar to go to the “Midnight Madness” area, you’ll find yourself in a small room with lots of group only opportunities for FREE items. The Tiar group is FREE to join. There are 3 Midnight Madness boards, 8 Lucky Letter Boards, a Sales Board, and 3 camping chairs. The items on the camping chairs and the Lucky boards all rotate so there are tons of items. One thing I noticed right away is most of the Lucky Letter boards seem to be on a short 3 minute rotation, which is really nice. This room is also where you can pick up the exclusive Fab Free group member gifts. There are two gifts at Tiar for the Fab Free group, one mens and one womens. Carson showed the mens gift in his post “Beach Therapy.” As always, the Fab Free group is FREE to join. Just wear your group tag to get the gifts from Tiar. Happy Shopping Fab Free!

Zombie Suicide Temporary FREE Group Join!

Zombie Suicide 2
Hello Fab Free! I’m super excited because I recently found out Zombie Suicide has made their in world group FREE to join for just a few days. Don’t ask me how long a few day is. I have no idea, so hurry! If you’re not familiar with the Zombie Suicide brand, it’s the definition of creepy cute clothing and accessories. You’ll really find a little bit of everything including clothing, jewelry, and makeup. Zombie Suicide group members get a 25% discount on all Zombie Suicide merchandise purchased while wearing the group tag. Also, there is an entire wall of FREE group gifts, and there are group only lucky letter boards. So along with sharing the news of Zombie Suicide’s temporary FREE group join, I also want to show off a few of the many group gifts.

I Heart Cardigans

This cozy cardigan is one of the many FREE group gifts at Zombie Suicide. It’s fully mesh and includes a color change hud that will allow you to choose between the purple color shown and and a black version. The black version mirrors the purple in that it has little purple hearts above the pockets.

Mesh Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, TMP, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Standard Mesh (xxs – L)

Zombie Suicide

Two Hearts

The cute necklace with the thin heart dangles is not one of the many group gifts, but rather a dollarbie hunt prize I stumbled across while shopping at Zombie Suicide. This prize also includes a color change hud so you can choose the color of each of the 2 hearts. There are 8 color options. I’m honestly not sure what hunt this necklace is from, but the little blue basket hunt item was easy to find considering I wasn’t even looking for it. *Hint, look low.

Choker

The choker Pru is wearing is a FREE group gift version of a choker/collar you can purchase at Zombie Suicide. It comes in several mesh sizes and includes a scripted version that has resize scripts and a non scripted version. The colors are a fun combination of purple, black, and green.

Facial Piercings

These pretty purple dermal piercings combined with the two nose studs are another FREE group gift at Zombie Suicide. These fit my Catwa mesh head very easily, which is always a plus. Additionally, there are 2 versions included in this gift, one with a shadow and one without (shown).

The Eyes Have It

Last but far from least, the pretty jewel-toned eyes are another FREE group gift at Zombie Suicide. This gift comes with a color change HUD with 3 variations of these hauntingly pretty eyes. They also include classic system layers and an alpha layer for non mesh avatars.

Oh hello Fab Free’rs. Maybe it’s the warm weather, I’m not sure, but there seem to be a lot of really sultry lingerie gifts out recently. I of course am not in any way complaining! This particular lingerie gift is a little different, in that it’s latex. I am not often a fan of latex, it’s just not my preference, but seriously, this latex set from NyDesign is adorable.

Not only is this ruffled latex set a FREE group gift, the NyDesign group is FREE to join. With the gift you’ll get this set shown in several mesh sizes and a color change hud with 12 color options. Most of the colors are pastel, but there are also the favorites like black, white, and pink. I personally am loving this dark bronze color. The top and skirt can be colored and worn separately. Also, there are several other group gifts available at NyDesign, and a few lucky chairs!

Sizes Included: Slink (Hourglass, Physique), TMP, Maitreya

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Green With Envy

Green With Envy
It’s getting hot in here Fab Free’rs! It’s no secret that I can’t resist pretty lace under-things, so when I saw this dollarbie promo from FAX, I had to share it with you. Wearing lingerie also seemed like the perfect opportunity to share this slightly risque unisex tattoo gift from This is Wrong. So without further ado, I’ll get to telling you how to score these sexy freebies.

Green With Envy

Green just so happens to be among my favorite colors, especially such a bright beautiful shade like this one. This lacy green applier lingerie is a limited time promotion available for just 1 linden at FAX. There’s no need to join a group or wear a specific group tag. You can simply purchase this individual color of the “Anna” lingerie at FAX.

Appliers Included: Slink, Omega, eBody, Maitreya, Belleza

Girls on Film

Yes, this full body tattoo from This is Wrong is far on the side of risque, but I think it’s also kind of fun. The black and grey tattoo features bold figures in fetish poses and other basic imagery associated with the Adult Film industry. This is a unisex tattoo and it comes in several mesh body appliers, each with a regular and faded (shown) version. Available to all This is Wrong group members, you’ll need to be sure you’re wearing the group tag to get this FREE gift. The This is Wrong group has a one time join fee of 50 linden.

Appliers Included: Adam, Maitreya/Belleza, Slink, Signature Gianni

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Graveside Beauty

Graveside

I let my macabre show today and got a little Gothic. I visited the Oubliette Graveyard and lay down among the (black) rose petals between the gravestones (petals not included! They are part of my pose). However it was perfect for showing off this great Women Only Hunt gift from Oubliette.

Not just another swimsuit

This free “swimsuit” from Oubliette is not just another swimsuit… it’s a Gothic girls dream come true. It comes in black with a skeletal design on the body and could double as a body suit. Included is a free pair of Lennon round sunglasses and a black floppy straw hat (not shown) for keeping out that dreaded sun.

Sizes included:

  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Feya, Isis, & Venus

Waiting is Over-rated…

Looking Glass_001

I’m settled down for a night in, but waiting is over-rated. I’ve already had a glass of wine and he just called to say it’ll be another half hour before he’s home for work. I’m going to settle in with a good book and call it a night if he doesn’t hurry. And I’ll leave the lingerie next to the wine for good measure while I catch some z’s, just so he knows he missed out.

Get the lace…

This lacy cover up is probably meant for the beach, as it comes with a white bikini but I opted to put something different under it and make it lingerie instead. You could take it to the beach and enjoy it there if you wanted! This sexy cover up is a FabFree group gift from Marquesse Pret a Porter and you can pick it up free from the back counter just by donning your FabFree group tag.

It comes in the following sizes:

  • Standard Mesh XXS – L
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique

Undergarments.

To make my coverup look like lingerie, I needed proper undergarments. I started with a Maitreya bra (included with my Maitreya body) and then made a stop at Elegance Boutique for the latest group gift. Once there the group is free to join, and you can pick up the Mila panties for free. These include a texture change hud for 26 textures that not only include different colors but also some floral prints as well. I’ve included a copy of the vendor add at the end of this blog post to give you a better peek at what these look like.

Sizes included:

  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

A Touch of Macabre

Back in Black_001

A touch of macabre.

Believe it or not, I was visiting a funeral parlor. I had stopped at Port Babbage again, and I was interested in the pottery in the window of a shop and had gone inside before I realized quite where I was. The somber furnishings and the casket for sale behind the screen quickly gave the location away. But still, I was intrigued. Perhaps it is the fact that I was raised on shows like The Munsters and The Addams Family.

Luckily…

… I was properly dressed for the occasion, thanks to the April group gift from Lisan Store. I had picked up this gift, just prior to going out. It’s a real beauty and the package had included the dress in both red or black, for an equally Gothic feel no matter which color you choose. I love the chained waist and the rose decorated bosom, which adds a bit of flair to this dress, yet somehow manages not to be frilly. As a side note, the dress only comes in Maitreya and Slink sizes for wear.

You will need the Lisan Store group tag to pick up this dress. It will set you back the small fee of 55L, but you’ll not only have access to this beautiful group gift, but also a about 6 other past group gifts that are still set out for you to enjoy. All of them are quality and lovely and make the join fee well worth it.
