This Witch Right Here

This Witch
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! I’m happy to be here, after a long battle with a terrible allergy monster I finally feel like a person again! I missed being here. I’m also so excited about the new group gifts, and a fun little gacha I have to share with you. I hope you like them as much as I do.

The Skin Pru’s In

Not too long ago Essences put out a new group gift for the Essences VIP group. This pretty skin is named Tawny, and she is a semi-full release skin. Yep, you heard right, the Essences group gift includes Catwa head and Maitreya body appliers in all current skin tones. The skin was modeled around the Catwa Catya head. It includes a shape, and a brow shape also intended for the Catwa Catya head. The Essences VIP group has a one time join fee of 444 linden. Though intended for the Catya head by Catwa, I love how this gift skin looks on my Catwa Sofia head.

Halloween Gacha Fun

While wandering through The Black Fair recently, I came across these fun Omega applier crop tops by Holli Pocket. There are several loosely Halloween themed crops to be had. The best part is they are just 50 linden per play. I am not going to tell you how many lindens I plunked into this gacha at The Black Fair, but I will say I’m not disappointed. I think they are a fun addition to my casual wardrobe.

Witch Claws

These super long bento nails are a recent group gift at Pink Hustler. The aptly named “Witch” nails are extra long for a decidedly wicked look. The nails are meant for Maitreya hands and come with a color change hud that includes 3 variations on several muted pastel shades. I chose a black to gray fade for this look. The Pink Hustler group is 400 linden to join, however members get access to the wall of group gifts and a 5% shopping credit on purchases made while wearing the Pink Hustler group tag.

Here are the details, enjoy!

Witches Brew

Witches Brew

I should have listened to Love’s advice in her post {HERE}.  “Be careful what you conjure, witches,” she said.  I thought I read the spell correctly.  I really did………but somehow, I turned my pal Ripley into his arch-enemy…….a cat!  See him perched up there on my shoulder?  See that look on his face?  He is NOT happy…….not one little bit!  I am hoping that one of our Fabulous Readers can point me to the antidote.   Either that, or perhaps Love can help me out…

It All Started At The Cart Wash

As the pupster and I unpacked our Cart Wash boxes, I began with this adorable silver Cobwebbed Mini Dress from MishMash Fusion, which is a one of 11 shades in the MishMash Fusion gacha machine.  This strapless frock features an all-over spiderweb print, which is adorned with a black ruffled trim and waistband.  As soon as I put it on, I fell in love with the loose-fitting skirt, which has plenty of extra fabric for it to swish with each step.  The package contains standard fitted mesh as well as versions for mesh bodies, so I’m sure you will find the perfect fit for your avatar.   At only 20L per play, you can easily stock up on a variety of colors.

What’s Included:

  • Standard Fitted mesh
  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Ebody
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Physique

Along Came a Spider

With the web pattern on my new dress, I couldn’t resist an arachnid-style necklace.  For just 1L on the Marketplace, I scooped up this Spider Necklace for Woman from La Forgia Jewels.  This bauble features onyx, moonstone and steel beads, and a spider pendant in the center.  I thought it complemented my new frock well, and the price was just right!

I Needed Just One More Item…

The only thing missing was a witch hat (not a witch CAT, but a witch HAT).  I set up my cauldron, pulled out all the ingredients, and began the incantation…  Then, it happened; just when I chanted the words, my nose twitched and I sneezed a great sneeze!  A green mist floated up from the brew, and when it cleared, instead of a HAT, I had a very annoyed former-German-Shepherd-now-CAT glaring at me.  “I-I-I-I’ll make it right, Buddy.  I promise!” I stammered.

So, you see my dilemma, Fabulouses.  I picked up a terrific mini dress and necklace for a grand total of just 21L, but I also made a HUGE mistake in my magic spell.  If anyone knows the antidote, Ripley and I will sure appreciate your assistance.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

~ Kat (and Ripley who is sadly shaking his head and whimpering for help)

Be Careful What You Conjure, Witches!

Closetwitch
Hey there Fabulouses! You might want to get comfy and grab a coffee or something because I’m feeling a little wordy (and nerdy, but I am sure that comes through in post of my posts so I am sure you are plenty prepared for that already lol) and have news of fabulous free stuff and fun gachas to tell you about today!

Which witch are you?

Sn@tch recently released a new 7 Seas Fish For This prize called Which Witch that includes a 23 piece set that will set you up with plenty of clothing, appliers, shoes, jewelry, makeup and accessory pieces to mix and match.  I am wearing just five of the prizes in this set (booties, tights, skater skirt, floral top,  & collar), but this is just a taste of the whole thing!

You’ll need a casual 7 Seas Fishing Rod to gain access to the pond of prizes which will set you back 100L, but you can use this rod over and over again for future prizes and other ponds around the grid.  No bait is required.

Setting The Scene

Most of the items in my photograph are from the Mystic Room Décor Gacha Set that is currently featured at this round of the Cosmopolitan Sales Room event.  This machine is just 55L to play and you can score everything in my photo aside from the build, chandelier and casting circle.  Those three items are part of the Something Sinister instore gacha (50L per play) at The Hive.

Between these two gacha machines, I was ready to start conjuring, but let me tell you…  Be careful what you conjure because you never know what might rise up behind you!  Thank goodness I have him trapped in a circle.  Ever wonder what made Carson decide to come back after so long of an absence?  Now you know!  (maybe an embellished story…)

RiseupCarson
Speaking of Lucifer Carson…

His devilish look today was put together with a couple of really great finds.  His Bloody Shirt is available at The Wash Cart Sale by TIAR on sale for 10L and you can find his Pants, Wings and Shoes as a free group gift with a free group join at It’s Gau.

Now… what button do I push on this thing to send him back? 😛

Fab Free Designer Friday – 09/29/2017 – Earthworx

Earthworx Gifts Entrance
Hello Fab Free’rs! Welcome back to the blog, I’m glad you’re here. I want to start by apologizing for not having a Designer Friday post last week. I really dropped the ball on that, and the rest of the week has just gotten away from me. That said, I’m happy to share with you this week’s designer, Earthworx. The landing point at Earthworx is a central courtyard of sorts with tons of outdoor furniture and decor to see. Virtually everything is for sale, and there is a wide variety of products. At Earthworx you’ll find everything from decor and landscaping to furniture. The styles are also equally varied. The styles range from urban bohemian to gothic fantasy. There are also sign posts along the pathways to tell you where to find things. The above photo is of the entrance to the part of the store where the gifts are found, because that’s important!Earthworx Gifts & Info
From the landing spot you should be able to see into the main entrance where the wall of information is. This is also where you’ll find information about current and upcoming hunts and events. Just around the corner in the same Earthworx building you’ll also find a group only Lucky Letter Chair, and a Midnight Mania board. However as noted on the info wall, all gifts have been moved to the second floor of the other building. As you browse through the many shopping areas of Earthworx you can follow the signs toward the gifts area. Don’t do like I did and miss the stairs to the second floor! They are located in the second/center room of the building.

Once upstairs, you’ll find the Earthworx group gifts and the Earthworx group joiner. There is a one time join fee of 100 lindens for the Earthworx group. You’ll also see that there are some opportunities for group discounts throughout the Earthworx shop. Next to the Earthworx gifts is where the Fabulously Free in SL group gift and the Third Life group gift. To get your Fab Free exclusive gift by Earthworx, you will need to wear your Fabulously Free in SL group tag. The Fab Free group is always FREE to join. Happy Shopping Fab Free’rs!

Creepy and Cute

Pru OOPSCreepy

Hello hello Fab Free’rs! I don’t know about you, but I’m definitely one of those people who thinks of Halloween as being more of a season than a single day. I’m in a spooky festive mood already this year. I think these cute sweater dresses from OOPS are a fun way to ease into the season. They come together as a FREE group gift for all OOPS group members. I really like the off the shoulder style, however I think the term dress is relative in this case. My body shape would definitely not allow me to wear this sweater as a dress! The OOPS group has a one time join fee of 10 linden and there are several previous group gifts still available.

Mesh Sizes Included: Ebody, Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), TMP

Pru 187187

Next up this three ring septum piercing is a FREE group gift from Boutique 187. I could wear this piercing every day, no matter if my outfit was dressy or casual. This group gift at Boutique 187 comes with a color change hud that lets you choose between 6 colors and you can change each ring separately. The Boutique 187 group has a one time join fee of 187 linden. Along with this piercing gift, there are several past gifts still available.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Sometimes It’s Better In SL

Snapshot_003
Hello there Fabulous Readers 🙂 What do you think of my painting?  In real life, I love art but unfortunately I am just not very good at it.  In Second Life, I’m practically a pro as you can see.  In fact, I can do a lot of things better in Second Life like dancing, wearing stilettos, dancing while wearing stilettos, flying airplanes and dressing myself for free!

Never in real life do I get so lucky as to come across a pair of adorable overalls with a top as a free gift for joining a group.  It just doesn’t happen.  It totally should 🙂

Anyways About The Outfit…

You can find this overall and top outfit set called Nell Overalls as a free group gift at Moolala.  It comes as one piece (top and pants together) in a handful of mesh sizes with an alpha layer and a HUD that allows you to  make a few changes to the denim colour, as well as several colours for the dotty tank top.  The Moolala inworld group is 25L to join.

gO Mia, !gO Mia!

GoGG
Hello FabFree Readers! I was so excited when a group notice came through the !gO inworld group announcing it’s newly released Mia Tops & Shorts because they are right up my fashion alley.  In Second Life, my natural go to items are casual styles that look comfortable.

In My Comfort Zone

!gO went all out on the texturing on the Mia Top with bunches and crinkles and wrinkles all in the right spots – and the shorts are perfectly worn in with realistic looking fray.  You can purchase these tops and shorts in a few different colours instore at an affordable price…  Perhaps you still have a group credit on file from previous offers 🙂

Or…  Get it for next to nothing!

You can pick up the top in the colour shown on my avatar for free as a group gift.  This gift does have the store logo on the bottom hem, but I sure don’t mind.  I doubt you’ll find it takes away from the look either.  This group has a very reasonable join fee of just 50L.

while you are there, grab the one pair of shorts (#6 as I am wearing) at half price – just 70L for a limited time!

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!

Fab Free Designer Friday – 08/11/2017 – Inevitable Madness

Inevitable Madness Exterior
Hello Fab Free’rs, welcome on this late Friday night. There probably isn’t a more perfect time to introduce this week’s designer Friday subject, Inevitable Madness. Madness I think is perhaps often inevitable on a Friday night when you don’t have to work the next day! haha Okay that is another blog post topic all together. Inevitable Madness is another new-to-me shops that I’m happy to have encountered. The store specializes in appliers of all kinds for human and furry avatars including makeup, manicures, clothing, and even some accessories and decor. I would say the style leans toward goth, but it is definitely eclectic.
Front Desk Friends Promo
The front desk is centered in the room as you enter the shop and has all the needed usual information available. Here you’ll notice Inevitable Madness has 2 groups you can join. I’ll tell you more about those in just a moment. In the main room you’ll find info on events on either side of the desk, and an area on a separate wall for “Friends.” I like this variation on the usual wall of associated entities. On the other side of this Inevitable Madness main room, you’ll find a cute 15 linden nail applier Promo.
Group Stuff
Before you exit the main room of the Inevitable Madness shop to shop and explore, don’t forget to stop by the “Group Only” table. This table has several group gifts for other store associated gifts such as the exclusive Fabulously Free in SL group gift. The Fab Free group is always FREE to join, so just wear your group tag to pick up your FREE gift at Inevitable Madness. To get a look at this pretty nail applier gift, check out the group gift listing Love posted here.

Speaking of group gifts, there are 2 groups you can join to be in the know on all things Inevitable Madness. The base group is FREE to join and will grant you access to one Midnight Madness board, and 2 Lucky Letter chairs. The VIP group at Inevitable Madness has a one time join fee of 100 linden. In the VIP group receives group gifts, and there are spaces available for VIP group Midnight Madness boards, and VIP group Lucky Letter chairs. You’ll find the group gifts piled on a table in the same area of the store. Needless to say there are lots of opportunities to not only stay informed, but get some sweet gifts and deals. So go, and have some fun, and enjoy some shopping at Inevitable Madness!

Carefree Summer Stroll

Wandering Around the Grid

Happy Mid-Week, Fabulouses!  It was time for another walk down a country lane for the pupster and I.  Today, we have a fabulous 1L hunt gift to share with you from the Around the Grid hunt, and I hope you like this complete outfit as much as I do!

Summer Freedom

Rip and I have just a small amount of summer freedom left to enjoy, so it’s kind of ironic that the outfit we bring you today is called “Liberata.”  It features a criss-cross strapped crop top and sleek capris.  The black fabric has a gorgeous sheen and realistic folded texture.  One of the things I love about gifts from Brii Underground is that they are generally complete outfits, and Liberata is no exception.  My bracelets, top, pants, and wedges are all included in the prize package, as well as sunglasses, a necklace, and a makeup layer for Catwa Jessica, which I opted not to wear for my photo.  Right out of the box, you get a full outfit that will set you up from head to toe for just one little Linden dollar.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh Top in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Mesh Pants in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Fitmesh Pants in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Fitmesh Top in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha layer for top and pants for classic avatars
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • eBODY
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine
