Day Dream Colors

Day Dream Colors

Maybe it’s because there is nearly a foot of snow covering the ground outside my real life window, but I’ve been all about the soft pastel colors here of late. Spring is usually more pastel for me but snow must bring on a softness, I guess. Anyway when I saw this lovely sea foam green sweater from Milky Way I had to have it and I’ve been wearing it all over the Grid today.

This is the Kiyomizu Winter Hunt Sweater from Milky Way for the … you guessed it.. Kiyomizu Winter 2021-2022 Hunt. I adore Milky Way’s designs. They all have a soft sweetness to them. While you’re at the shop, check out the huge wall of Group Gift Lucky Boards. The Group is free to join and there are some really nice prizes there. The Kiyomizu Winter 2021-2022 Hunt ends soon on January 10th. But the prize objects ( An adorable Ninja Cat) are very easy to find. In fact some of them aren’t hidden at all so you won’t have any trouble collecting as many as you might want.

Sizes Included

  • One size ( It fits my Maitreya perfectly)

New Year a New You or It’s MakeOver Monday!

Hey there Fab Free. Did y’all know that back in November of last year 55,000 people were actively playing Second Life at one time? 55,000! Each time I log on, I see anywhere from 40 to 50,000 people on the Grid. That’s a LOT of people. I couldn’t find any hard numbers as to how many of that might be new accounts but at least some are to be certain. And I wondered… how hard is it to get started now days. Back in 2009 it wasn’t really hard to get started but it wasn’t terribly intuitive either. Happily, I had a couple of good friends who also played and they helped me out tremendously. In fact, they brought me to “this great place with a ton of freebies called FabFree”!

Then right on the heels of all this musing of time past, another dear friend started modifying a new Alt avatar for himself and asked for a bit of input since he was designing a female avatar. Plus he, hadn’t really ever gotten into the mesh bodies or head before. As we worked he suggested a cool idea: what if Fab Free had a couple of posts about starting totally new in Second Life from the ground up. Sort of a No0b to Knock out in a few easy steps and for FREE. 

So where are you going with all this, Juli? You may ask yourself. I’m glad you asked! I will be writing a series of posts taking us right from the beginning of starting an avatar and how you can start to fill your inventory and take the avatar from free beginning Linden Labs starter kit to a personalized maxed out Second Life Star.

So hang on… here we go!

FabFree meet Kerydwyn. I went ahead and started with a female avatar first simply because I am so much more familiar with female goods on the Grid. But I am also going to gender bend a bit here. So also meet Alistar.  Just… wow. Second Life… why do you hurt me when I love you so much?

You can see there is a huge difference between the starter male and female. At least the female avi isn’t… embarrassing.  It’s clear that way more effort has been put into the female side of things. Even the AO included with the starter girl was better. And yes, I hear you guys out there saying, “As usual.” Frustratingly, that trend has played out the entire time I was running around trying to find freebie starter items for poor Alistar.

So lets start with Kerydwyn. And bodies first. I knew I wanted a mesh body because of the bento rigging. Bento rigging basically adds more joints to the basic skeleton of the avatar so it can move more realistically. If you want to go dancing in SL… you want a bento rig. Some bodies are older and don’t have it so be careful to read the description of what you’re getting and try a demo if possible. But at 0L you can collect a bunch, try them out and pick your favorite.

I went with the Ruth body. It’s extremely basic in as far as mesh bodies go. The feet aren’t changeable so the body comes with three styles of detachable feet. But it’s a good starter mesh body. I also picked up the eBody curvy completely free on the Marketplace. It’s not Omega ready and it doesn’t have Bento rigged hands. But again, for free it’s not bad at all. The eBody full version is Omega ready and has all the bells and whistles… like finger nails… Since the body is not Omega ready, I couldn’t wear my skins that came with the starter avatar. But I found a skin color included that sorta matches. And though I searched… I couldn’t find an Omega System kit for the eBody. Even though it’s listed on the Omega website. 

On a personal note, I found the eBody Curvy to still be too bubble butt for my taste. Even though I used the slider controls to make it as small as possible. I also didn’t like the way the vaginal area was sculpted. But that would change with the skin worn or other appliers added. So you’re mileage may vary. 

Ruth Body on the left – eBody on the right – both with the “Leah” head from Kalhene.

I had already picked up the free Lelutka heads before Christmas, but I thought that might be kind of cheating. So I grabbed the lovely free head from Kalhene – “Leah”. I was also able to pick up a few free group[p gifts for later. And I will point you over to the list of Mesh bodies and heads right here on FabFree. 

I really like this head even though it’s rather basic. It does come with a small HUD for eyelash length, 24 colors for the lips, a glossiness meter, a blink switch and a switch to hide the eyelashes. It also has a switch to “hide” the lips but all it did was take off any color I had put on.

The other “bad” thing… I couldn’t just use the Leah shape for the head. It’s a full body shape. And no amount of sliders could make that booty look smaller. So I ended up wearing the full body shape that came with the eBody. But the original face shape that comes with Leah is so much prettier.  I may mess around with it more and see if I can slider it back.

Okay… so that’s it for today.  Next Monday we’ll take a look at this same process for poor suffering Alistar. And we’ll talk about AOs plus hair!

I hope someone out there reads this and says “Just what I needed!” If you have any questions, comments, corrections or raspberries, feel free to holler at me here on the blog!

Keep me warm, let me wear your coat

Keep me warm, let me wear your coat

Good evening, Fabulously Free. It is certainly very wintery here in my part of the real world tonight. Blustery wind and freezing rain… everything one needs to stay home near the fire. But what if you insist on braving the weather? Then you will need something warm and comfortable. Which, of course, brings me to tonight’s post.

I am sporting the “Jerico Coat and Hoodie” from FurtaCor. You can add this to your closet for a mere 77L this weekend as part of the Mix Weekend sale. I realize that this is over our customary 75L cut off. However, it’s such a small stretch and the outfit is certainly worth every penny. You’ll get a HUD to change the coat’s texture to one of colors, all of which go well with the Christmas inspired hoodie. 

I don’t know how long this special price will last so you may wish to fetch it as soon as possible.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza Jake
  • FitMesh
  • Legacy Male
  • Signature Gianni
  • SLink Male

Staying Cozy

Staying Cozy

Hey Fab Free! I hope you’re taking time to enjoy this beautiful season. Not just the Holiday sales and advents and Hunts… though I am here to talk about a couple of hunt prizes. But have you checked out some of the gorgeous winter and Christmas themed SIMS? I could have stayed all day over at Jacob’s Pond with the gently falling snow and the the whispers of wind. Oh, it makes me soooo ready for Christmas!

Even if Christmas isn’t on your mind… the colder weather might be! In the spirit of snow and wind I tracked down two cozy hunt prizes for us today. Starting with this beautiful cranberry colored coat from Loordes of London. This is the “Foehn Winds” coat and it can be yours for 1L. You don’t even need to hunt as Loordes of London simply places the hunt object on the Hunt/Event board. The coat is wonderfully made and looks so toasty warm.

Sizes Included

  • Fitmesh
  • Classic Mesh Sizes – XXS – L

Being an elf means I know how to keep these ears warm and Poeme is helping out with that. My comfy red earmuffs are the 1l prize from Poeme for The Better Not Pout Hunt. Just hunt down the little santa hat hunt object and you will receive two pairs of earmuffs: one red and one green. I may not take these off till Spring!

Just the Begining

Just the Begining

Hello again, Fab Crew. I hope this Monday is treating you right. I was joking with Arielle the other day that as soon as Thanksgiving was over… I was diving straight into Christmas. Snow is coming down, tree is going up… the works! We NEED some Christmas goodness and happiness this year! Am I right?? Soo from here on out… it’s all Christmas all the time for me!

So I’m starting out with this gorgeous gown from Glitterati by Sapphire because it just screams Regency Christmas to me. With it’s lovely little leg of mutton sleeves and the rich green velvet sash. It’s time for caroling and seeing what Mr. Darcy is up to.

You can pick up your own lovely dress for free when you wear your FabFree Group Tag, also free, and head over to Glitterati. Be sure to take a look at all the gorgeous gifts ’cause there are a lot of them. So until next time FabFree… HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

My new hair style is also making the start to my holidays merry and bright. This is current group gift “No_Results” from No_Match. I love the retro look with the swept sides. It comes with a full Fatpack of colors and a slender head band that can be turned on and off. The No_Match group is 50L to join but you’ll quickly make that back with all the past gifts available. Plus, this is one of the most reliable Designers for monthly gifts. Something I know I certainly appreciate!
