Your Friendly Neighborhood Vampire

Friendly Neighborhood Monster

“When other little girls wanted to be ballet dancers, I kind of wanted to be a vampire.”

– Angelina Jolie

Hello Fab Free! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. Mine was pretty great, I feel refreshed and ready to take on the weekly grind. As for this post I have some Spookzilla finds, and a few October group gifts to share. First, I’m slightly obsessed with bats, which made these lounge shorts and matching top by 1 Hundred absolutely irresistible. I also picked up some pretty must-have makeup group gifts at Purple Beauty, and ghoulish confection group gift from Palette.

1 Hundred at Spookzilla

1 Hundred has 8 total hunt prizes at the Spookzilla event. You’ll need to hunt down the little ghosts from 1 Hundred hidden around the Spookzilla sim. I picked up the “Night Wing” shirt and the matching “Night Wing” shorts for just 10 linden each. The top says “moonlight” across the front and has a purple bat on the back. The shorts have a high slit on either side.

Sizes Included: Belleza Freya. Slink Hourglass, Maitreya Lara, MeshBody Legacy

Purple Beauty

I’m a sucker for good makeup, BOM layers, appliers, I’ll wear them both. For me makeup is just a fun form of self expression. Purple Beauty has two beautiful group gifts available. One is a BOM layer eyeshadow set, and the other is a glittery gloss set in a Catwa HD applier. The colors in both sets are vibrant and beautiful on. The Purple Beauty group has a join fee of just 50 linden.

🌸 NEW GROUP GIFT

Palette

This “Vampire Milkshake” group gift at Palette manages to be gory and cute. It also ties in nicely with my very relatable Angelina Jolie quote at the top of the post. This ghoulish beverage comes with a bento hold pose for the right or left, and a display version. The cup says “Happy Halloween” with little bats, also I love the little bat chocolates on the top! You’ll need to join the “Leggy Mainstore Official” group which is the store group for Palette to claim this gift. The group has a join fee of just 10 linden.

Sweet but Psycho

Sweet but Psycho

Oh hello there Fab Free’rs! Welcome back to the blog. I’m not plotting anything sweetly sinister, I swear. I am however happy to share a few more of the Kustom 9 event gifts with you. My long-sleeved top and this doughnut clad knife are both free at Kustom 9. You will need to join the free-to-join Kustom 9 group and wear the group tag to claim your free gifts.

AsteriodBox

I love the look of this top by AsteroidBox. The thin stripes, slightly pointed sleeves, and leather straps give it a lot of style. There’s also a well done oval cut-out in the back of the shirt for some added detail. This top is free at Kustom 9, just wear the Kustom 9 group tag.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara/Petite, Slink Hourglass/Petite, MeshBody Legacy/Perky, Belleza Freya

Zenith

This could-be threatening knife stacked with doughnuts and tied with a sweet bow is free at Kustom 9. It’s made by Zenith and has a hold pose that can be turned off or on by touch menu. It also has a hud with a few options to color the doughnuts, and the ribbon.

I’m Lovin’ It!

I'm Lovin' It

If you have not made it out to Kustom 9 yet, you need to go! I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again, there are so many things happening in Second Life right now! Pun intended, I really am lovin’ it!

The current round of Kustom 9 is an Anniversary round! That means tons of free gifts from the participating designers. For this look I picked up the free Kustom 9 group gifts by Tram, ILAYA, Amitomo, and Hangry.

ILAYA

I am a loungewear kind of girl a lot of the time, especially when I know I’m not going to be leaving the house much. This free Kustom 9 gift set by ILAYA is the quintessential t-shirt and shorts with the cutest Halloween print. I also really like that this set is not in the typical Halloween colors. You’ll need the Kustom 9 group tag for these gifts. The group is free to join.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara/Petite, MeshBody Legacy

Amitomo 

The green cord choker is the free Kustom 9 gift by Amitomo. This pretty choker comes fitted for Maitreya Lara bodies, and the single green and gold version shown. I know it’s hard to see in my photo (my bad!) but the gold lettering reads “moonchild.”

Hangry

Second Life really allows me to be the junk-food junkie I would love to be in real life. lol These french fries are the free gift at Kustom 9 by Hangry. For once I didn’t have to worry about my fries being unhealthy! Also, the bento hold pose is part of the item.

Tram

Finally for this look Tram has cute wispy bangs as their free Kustom 9 gift. The bangs are meant for the hairstyle I’m wearing which is also for sale at Kustom 9, however since they come in a Tram color fatpack you could wear them with other Tram hairstyles.

All in the Dark

All in the Dark

Time for a bit more creepy and smidge more crawly.  Well, maybe none of that, but definitely a lot more fancy, dark and free!  I just love October.  It’s so filled with lovely things, and there are oh so many to be had in Second Life!

Back to Shopping and Hopping

The Halloween Shop & Hop is still going strong, and you’ll certainly be able to shop a little more lag free now that the event has been on for a while.  You have until November first to make your way through the eight sims filled with goodies!  You don’t need a group for any of these freebies!  Here’s what I’m wearing:

  • FREE Dress by Baiastice sized for Freya, Hourglass, Hourglass Petite, Legacy, Maitreya Petite, Maitreya and Perky in 12 Colours
  • FREE Shoes by Mosquito’s Way sized for Belleza, Legacy, Maitreya and Slink in 8 Colours

All Over Again

All Over Again

I’m back in pink and black again.  It seems to be a thing that just happens!  And the best part is, I don’t mind one bit!

I’ve Had a Vision!

It’s ViSion’s 10th Anniversary inworld, and they are totally spoiling their group members!  If you join their group for 18L, you’ll gain access to an awesome group gift of 450L in store credit.  The best part is, the whole store is on sale, so you get way more bang for your buck.  I bought the bodysuit (the necklace is included) and skirt I’ve got on there, and I still had money left over for more!  Fantastic!  You’ve got until October 18th to take part in all the festivities, so don’t let this gift get away from you!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Legacy

Pumpkin Spice

ChicChica are ready to serve up something delicious!  The Pumpkin Spiced Ice Cream Rolls look so so yummy that I’m feeling a bit jealous of my avatar… It’s got a sweet bento hold and best of all it’s completely free!  You don’t even need to join a group.  You’ll find this awesome treat on the front desk at ChicChica.  Yum!

See you sweet things soon!

Thankful for Treats

Thankful for Treats

Happy Thanksgiving FabFree!  Yep, up here in the wilds of Canada we celebrate Thanksgiving in October.  Today I’m giving thanks for all sorts of things.  My health, my family, my friends, and of course you, dear readers!  It’s nice to know that I have a place where I can come to ramble about my inner musings and someone is sure to read.  Thanks for being here, and thanks for giving us all the chance to be even a little part of your lives!

Bone Dry

I’m looking a bit Halloweeny for Thanksgiving, but I’m sure you’ll all forgive me.  There are so many awesome gifts, hunts and events going on right now that we’re hard pressed to keep up here on the blog!  My dress comes courtesy of 28LA.  Isn’t it cool?  I got it by searching for the pumpkins at the 2MUCH event.  There are a few hanging around (they’re not TOO hard to find!) and if you pay 10L for them, you’ll get the contents.  Not a bad deal, if you ask me!

Sizes

  • EB Curvy
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Legacy
  • Legacy Perky
  • Maitreya

Trick or Treat!

Trick or Treat Lane has taken off, and every year I am reminded how much fun this event is!  I love the decor, there are awesome free gifts, and an eensy weensy bit of hunting that isn’t too taxing.  You’ll note that every stall has a gift out front, but at some you’ll find a little ghost has stolen the gift and hidden it somewhere inside the designer’s stall.  Good fun to be had!  Today, I’m showing off the gifts from Petrichor (this bento hold cookie) and Old World (the cat, cauldron, pumpkins and broomstick at my feet).  They’re both free, and no group join is required.  Sweet!

What else will you find at Trick or Treat Lane?

Happy Turkey Day, Fellow Canucks!  Stay Safe!

Let’s Get Spooky!

Let's Get Spooky

Hello Fab Free! This is absolutely my favorite time of year. This is when I can be as spooky as I want to, and no one seems to mind. That said, I think my level of excitement over the Halloween Shop & Hop events might have been the most excitement I’ve felt about an event all year. With several sims full of festive Halloween goodness and freebies, I can’t imagine not being excited. That said, I have several of the free Halloween Shop & Hop event gifts to share with you. I sincerely hope you love them, I do.

As Aline mentioned in her recent post “The Magic Words” there are 8 total Halloween Shop & Hop sims. Most (if not all) of the participating shops have a free gift, with no group required. Some gifts will require you to pay 1 linden,  however you will be instantly refunded. For this look I picked up the free gifts from Pink Cream Pie, #Adored, The Annex, On a Lark, and ChicChica. As usual you can keep reading for details about each free gift, or scroll to the end for full credits and links.

Pink Cream Pie

My thoroughly blood splattered top is the free Halloween Shop & Hop gift by Pink Cream Pie. This gift comes with a color change hud that has several solid colored tees all with generous amounts of blood splatter.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Maitreya Lara Petite, MeshBody Legacy

#Adored

The free Halloween Shop & Hop gift by #Adored is the cutest little brow tattoo. It reads “Spooky” with the option of wearing it on the right or the left side, in cursive or bold lettering, each with the choice of bold or faded styles. This tattoo comes in tint-able BOM layers only, which gives the added option of having the tattoo in color.

The Annex

I particularly like this fun devil horns headband by The Annex because it glows like neon. It comes in several color choices, so you can wear this fun accessory with multiple outfits. They are also of course free at the Halloween Shop & Hop Event.

On a Lark

I think there’s a rule that says you can’t have Halloween without a black and red manicure. Okay, maybe not, but in my world these bento nails by On a Lark are a must this season. On a Lark has 2 darkly pretty manicure sets as free gifts at the Halloween Shop & Hop event. The ones I am wearing are part of the “Halloween” set that has 4 black and red variations in the set.

Sizes Included: Maitreya, Slink

ChicChica

Finally, my creepy cocktail is part of the free Halloween Shop & Hop gift by ChicChica. The gift includes two fantastically macabre martinis. Also, each of the Halloween themed  drinks has a bento hold pose. Have fun Fab Free!
