Smiley faces all around

Hello there to all you Fabulously Free readers! I’m Sheidey (but please just call me Edi) and I enjoy mulling over hunt hints, slapping midnight mania boards and long walks on the beach especially if they lead to a Kraken-themed unlucky dip. Truth be told, I hemmed and hawed a little over what to feature on my first post of this wonderful blog. Wings? No. Dress and boots combination? Maybe for later. Broken unicycle? Wait. How did that get into my inventory?

Mysteries aside, I finally settled on the hunt that’s running concurrently with the Fluffy and Fierce event. If the ‘cute with an edge’ look is right up your alley then hop on down to the event and pick up the hunt hint notecards from some of the participating merchants. The hunt item is hidden in their respective main stores so while you’re hunting you can get distracted by all sorts of lucky letters, group gifts, weasels, etc etc…It’s so much fun!

The outfit pictured is the Bring It On batwing set from Blasphemic that comes in five mesh sweater sizes and system layer ripped leggings with an Omega applier as well as appliers specific to popular mesh bodies. It also includes a studded belt that comes with a resizer hud. I love the laid back look and feel of the outfit and paired it up with a pair of boots that I got off the Midnight Mania board at Psychotic Neko. I do believe that it’s the first set of boots in my Second Life closet to have claws. Definitely made for walking.

To tie the whole look together, I’m wearing the Cella hair from Damselfly that you can get for free at the Crossroads event and the new group gift from WoW Skins called Angy. The simple hairstyle and fresh-faced skin just adds to the casual factor of the whole outfit. It was a lot of fun putting this look together and I hope you had fun reading my first post just as much as I enjoyed writing it!

Get it through your skull

Hello hello FabFree!

In my Skull

Are you ready for the fall? I love the autumn season with everything it brings: crisp days, caramel apples and… Halloween! One of my most favorite holidays. I’m getting a jump on  the spooky this year at the Indian Summer Cart Sale at the Wash at Eluzion’s Cart. This is the ‘Shamira’ top and skirt and it’s only 10L on the Cart. I love the little pink skulls al over the top! Gets me right in the mood for Halloween. The top and skirt are one simple piece and has a good single alpha layer. The standard FitMesh sizes XS-XL as well as appliers for SLink, Maitreya and Belleza are all included.

I mentioned yesterday that – Sentinus –  is featuring a bunch of sales, gifts and a Hunt as well as a gift for the Second Life Frees and Offers group. This is the SLF&O gift : Samara. The flowy style comes in the one rich color and it’s free for wearing your SLF&O tag!

Seeing Red

Seeing Red

If it’s been a while since you’ve stopped by Analog Dog to check out the FREE ball on the back beach, now is the time to do so, as there are some new FREE hairs in the ball just waiting for you to pick them up. In the picture above, I’m sporting a messy curly do called idyll, to which I added the jana bang set from the ball. The ball included both a hud for the dark blondes set as well as a hud for light reds… however since the hud includes a tinting option, you can get much darker brown and black shades on the hair as well.

Seeing Red 2

In the picture above I am showing you just one of two FREE hats that were also included in the FREE ball. This is the mill hat and is a perfect fit over the top of idyll once I removed the jana bang piece. I love the classy black hat. There was also a modern red print fedora as well!

Seeing Red 3

This classy style above is called samadhi, and is a lovely side-swept mesh style. Like idyll, it comes in dark blonde and light reds.

In the picture below I’m showing you the last addition to the FREE ball — scream cheese. It does just kind of make you want to scream “cheese” and take pictures. It’s one of those fabulous hairs that is casual and fun.

To find the free ball, fly up and back to the beach-y area of the Analog Dog hair sim and look for the semi-transparent bubble. Buy it for 0L and these great styles are yours.

Seeing Red 4

I’m not quite done yet though… I wanted to mention a few other tricks up my sleeve in my style today. Sometimes your skin needs a refresh. Make up is a great way to give a favorite skin a new feel, and testers are a nice way to get a new look without a lot of Lindens. I ran across this FREE tester by alaskametro called Orchid… it’s this pretty lip-stain that freshened up my avatar’s face. You won’t even have to teleport anywhere, just pick it up off the marketplace. It comes in a system applier as well as appliers for TMP, Eve, Lelutka, Loudmouth, NyamNyam, Omega, and Slink Visage.

To polish off my new look I added a ring from the Cart Wash Sale, because jewelry always adds a nice finishing touch. This classy cocktail ring from Luminesse is stylish and only 10L. If you stop by the cart you’ll find several beautiful pieces for men and women both to add to your inventory.

Morning Shopping at the Wash

Good Morning, FabFree!

Take the mic

I don’t know about you but it’s an “I need coffee” sort of morning here. I was up late, maybe too late but a little coffee and a little shopping? Now that’s the way to start the day.  I started out at the fantastic Indian Summer Cart Sale at the Wash and found this wonderful mini dress from Zanze. This is the Becca dress in cream I’m showing off. But it comes in several just-as-tasty colors and all for 10L each. The dress includes the standard Mesh sizes XS-L but it has no alpha layer. I found I actually didn’t need one. The dress fits perfectly! Just don’t forget your undies since you aren’t alphaed!😉

Right next to the Zanze Cart is the always awesome Lindy Modern and Retro Shoes Cart. Lindy has put out a very nice loaded Cart this round with shoes for SLink feet and system feet. I picked the Yeva heels in nude to match up with my new dress.

Last but not least, is a new hair style to top things off. This is the lovely ‘Esra’ from Sentinus and it was one of the current free groups gifts.  As of right now, the Sentinus group is free to join! Plus there is a nice selection of group gifts available, a free SLF&Os gift AND a great Hunt/sale going on! So don’t delay!

Will o’ The Wisp

Will o' the Wisp Hello Fab Free’rs, thanks for coming by! Today’s post is fairly simple but I had a lot of fun with it. Sometimes a look will inspire me in a different way. This one did just that. It reminds me of something not fashion related, the folkloric wisps found in European folklore. Something about the blazing blue hair paired with the tartan-ish pattern of this draping backless dress made me imagine a mythological being. Perhaps the embodiment of a wisp? Either way, I had fun, and I hope you will also!
The Wisp This wonderfully wild hair is by Exile. The “Hot” style is one of Exile’s gacha hairstyles at The Arcade. To get this bright blue color, you’ll need to score the “Fantasy 2” color pack. If the brighter colors aren’t to your liking there are plenty of more natural versions as well, even in the “Fantasy 2” hud. The Exile gacha at The Arcade is just 50 lindens per play. There are 2 hairstyles to be had, each in several color packs.

The dress is by NSP Florals and can be had for just 10 lindens at The Wash’s Indian Summer Cart Sale. This chevron pattern reminds me of tartan or flannel style patterns and I love it! Flannel was hugely in style during my teens and 20s, and I hear it’s making a come-back. Hence the nostalgic feelings associated with the fabric. There are however several other equally pretty versions available if this one doesn’t suit you. Each version is just 10 lindens and comes in several fitmesh sizes. There’s even a solid white version. So go, visit the NSP Florals Cart, don’t miss out on this lovely floor-length dress. The Cart Sale won’t last forever.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Hair – Exile::Hot: 7. Fantasy 2 – 50L per play @The Arcade

Skin – Lumae : Sabine – Catwa Omega – T4 Fawn / Starlight – 100L for Buy Now Sept. on the Matketplace *Other skin tones also available 

Head – CATWA HEAD Anna *Additional Expression HUD Sold Separately 

Dress – NSP Florals – NSP Pacific Shores Gown – Singles 6 – 10L @The NSP Florals Cart

Autumn Afternoon

Heyya FabFree!

Autumn Afternoon

I know it’s not Tuesday but I’m feeling a fantasy role play mood coming on. Maybe because I picked up this gorgeous frock from BlueMoon Enterprise for free. This is “Coreen” in a lovely rusty red and it’s the latest group gift for September. The dress comes in the standard mesh sizes XXS-L and has a good alpha layer. As with everything from BlueMoon I’ve seen, Coreen is simply stunning in build and in details.  Don’t miss this one!

I was also excited to see that Mina has put out a free gift for the Second Life Frees & Offers group. The group is free to join and you can pick up tons of great freebies all around the grid. Mina is giving us this sweet hair style named, appropriately, “Mena” this month. Mena comes in a materials and a no materials version in this lovely light brown color. If you haven’t discovered Mina this is a great way to try it out for free… and get addicted.😉

As with all free gifts, these may not be around long so grab those group tags and get going!

One Fine Day

One Fine Day

Have you checked out the Indian Summer Cart Wash Sale yet?! I stopped by this morning and couldn’t help but pick up a couple of beautiful finds for myself.

My first stop was at the Ghee cart, where I picked up my simply beautiful silk Sari dress in Sugar. There are a lot of colors out and at only 10L each, you may just be tempted to pick up each and every color! You’ll get all the standard sizes as well as fitmesh, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique. I was in love!

I also stopped by the Roped Passion’s cart, where I picked up my Nani sandals. These beautiful flowered sandals also come in several colors, though I nabbed the pink to match my dress. These too are just 10L each and you’ll get a pair to fit Slink or Maitreya feet in each box. What a deal!

BYRNE Meets booN

Pussycat 1 Hello Fab Free’r’s! I’m so sorry it has taken me way to long to get this post done. I’ve had a busier than usual week, much busier than even I anticipated. The good news is things are calming down for a spell, and for the time I should be here more. That said, I’m excited to share with you this gorgeous hairstyle from booN, and this striking little dress from BYRNE. Together I think they make for a really stunning high-fashion look that I hope you love.
Pussycat Starting with the hair from booN, this purposefully messy up-do is edgy and fun. It also happens to be part of the Clearance/Retirement Sale going on at booN. Now through the 10th of September you can pick up this style and several others for as little as 20 lindens per color pack or 70 lindens for a fat pack. You’ll also find several less expensive hairstyles in the same “sale” area, however I’m not sure if those are being retired as well or not. Either way, if you’re looking for some fun new styles like this one you won’t want to miss out on this sale. Also I want to point out that several of the styles do need a hairbase under them. Pru is wearing the basic Catwa hairbase included with the Catwa heads. There are free demos for most of the styles, so I definitely recommend you try the demos before you purchase.

Next up, this sassy little dress from BYRNE is the FREE September group gift. I think this dress is so feminine and beautiful on. The bow at the back of the neck gives it a little extra girlishness. This FREE BYRNE group gift comes in this two tone grey color as well as an equally pretty dusty pink version. You’ll find each color comes in fitmesh mesh sizes and a Maitreya specific fit. A matching alpha layer is also included. To get this FREE gift simply join the BYRNE Style group and check the past notices. The group is FREE to join. Additionally, there’s also a men’s gift to be had!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Hair – *booN ARK554 hair black/chocolate/purple – 20L *Sale Ends Sept. 10th 

Head/Hair-base – CATWA HEAD Tumble *Additional Expression HUD Sold Separately 

Skin – Essences – Amara – Full Release – @Cosmopolitan Sales Room *Until End of Day Sept. 8th 

Dress – (BYRNE) Victoria Dress – FREE Group Gift/Group is FREE to Join

Apple Picking Time

Apple Picking Time

It’s apple picking time! And I love this windblown looking hairstyle that says “fall” that you can pick up right now at KoKoLoReS FREE for September if you hurry! That’s because right now through September 15th, the join fee is waived. You can join the group for FREE and pick up this beautiful style in a fatpack of colors for this month’s group gift.

For just 1L I also hunted down Moolala’s contribution to the Fall Tears Hunt. It is this pretty outfit called Mercury which includes the shorts and bandana style top. You’ll get all the standard sizes plus fitmesh sizes to fit Maitreya, Belleza, and Slink.
