The Wearing of the Green

St Paddy

Kiss me, I’m Irish…

As I was putting on my Kiss Me, I’m Irish shirt, she shot me a disapproving look and was asked a one word question… “REALLY?” … So, it was back to the closet to find another green shirt. I found the Celtic Shamrock Tee by 7Tees that I bought on the Marketplace for just $75L. It’s not my fault she’s busy and can’t join me at the pub. All work and no play, yada yada yada… I slipped into my Shamrock Shoes, the FREE March group gift from Prey. I gave her a kiss on the cheek and I was out the door.

Dance an Irish Jig…

To get me in the mood for all this Irish revelry, I slipped on my FREE Jiggery Blarney Hat I picked up at the Jinx booth when I visited the Vintage Gacha Fair. If you want to dance an Irish jig, this hat even plays a tune. I saunter up to the bar to order my first beer of the evening and notice that her trusty man servant Ribald is the bartender for the evening. Either it’s just a coincidence or she thinks I’m going to need a ride home after too many pints….

Last Gasp

Last Gasp

To the last, I grapple with thee;
From Hell’s heart, I stab at thee;
For hate’s sake, I spit my last breath at thee.
– Herman Melville
(and this year’s winter)

I’m just so over you….

With the first day of calendar spring just a few short days away, one would think that the sun would be shining, the birds singing and flowers beginning to rise from the ground….
Nope, I was hit with a late winter surprise this week. I’m ready for short sleeves shirts and shorts, but it isn’t happening anytime soon, at least according to the weather report.
Today’s look was hard to find. Everyone is thinking spring and I had to fall back into winter. I remembered seeing a past group gift at Costarlos still out and decided to grab it before spring is here to stay. The Red Jacket with Shirt and Tie was a FREE Christmas gift to members that is still available and was very fitting for today. And I am still wearing the Black Pants, part of the $1L The Best of You Hunt gift from Wilson’s Designs.

Moving forward…

I’m so hoping that this is the final burst of winter. But at least it allowed me to show you some group gifts from Yack. By joining the group for FREE, you can pick up both the Waze Hat and the Zurich Scarf. Each comes with its own texture HUD to match your outfit. While at Yack, I also grabbed the FREE Basic Line Sunglasses. They come in three colors, black, blue and gold to keep the snow glare off your eyes.
Say goodbye winter. Don’t let the door hit you in the snowdrift. 😁

Burgers & Beer

Burger and Beers

That time of the day…

Each day, I set aside some time for myself. Whether it being finishing up work I brought home, spending some extra play time with the pup, or making a meal that consists of more than just macaroni and cheese. And on occasion, after an especially trying day, I’ll stop for a burger and some beers. Swinging by my local pub and catching up on all the gossip is also relaxing and I just let my worries wash away one beer at a time….

While on The Best of You Hunt, I found this three-piece outfit at Wilson’s Designs. The White Shirt with Tie, Men’s Vest and Black Pants are the $1L hunt gift. This outfit comes in the standard mesh sizes XS-XL and includes alpha layers for non-mesh system bodies.  Oh good! It looks like my burger is up… “Hey bartender, how about a round for the house on me!”

A day at home

A day at home

Homebody

It’s the middle of the week and I’ve put adventuring on hold for a little bit to take a look at all the free gifts and dollarbies that have been collected over the past several days. With events such as the Vintage Gacha Fair and Liaison Collaborative’s Birthday round, not to mention fun hunts such as the Into the Blue Hunt and great deals on the Marketplace, my loot bag has been filled to the brim.  This casual (finally!) look today was pulled from all of the above and here are the details top to toe;

Let your hair down

Today’s hairstyle is called No Diva, a free gift that’s been generously set out by no.match at their Liaison Collaborative booth. While I’ve heard whispers of the no.match brand before (isn’t Carson’s celebrated new do’ from that store?) I’ve not yet had a chance to try out their products. As the old adage goes, there’s no time like the present and suffice to say I was very gleeful when I tried this hairstyle on for size. To be honest, it was really off to a promising start when I saw that the prize prim was labeled as ‘unicorn’ and guessed that I was in for some really wild and special colors. The multicolored shades go hand in hand with the lovely over the shoulder swirl of the No Diva hairstyle. If red and rainbow tones don’t suit your taste, however, the gift package contains a hud which lets you choose from twelve different color sets.  Other contents of the gift package include:

  • No Diva hairstyle in two different sizes
  • Alpha layer
  • Package containing tattoo hairbases for classic avatars
  • Package containing applier hairbases for mesh heads (TMP, Lelutka, Catwa – Jessica, Omega)
  • Face moles tattoo layer

The birthday round of the Liaison Collaborative closes its doors on the 30th of this month so go and snag this sweet hairstyle before then. Also, Serena’s made a lovely post of some of the other free gifts available at the Liaison Collaborative so get your hands on those too!

To the Market(place) we’ll go

Personally, I’ve found that one of the best times to visit the Marketplace is when I’m stalking Lucky Letter boards/chairs/balloons. While attempting to multitask might make me miss my letter or that magical wildcard round, sometimes it’s worth it when you find a store like !gO! which offer up a plenty of varied dollarbies for sale. One of the first of said dollarbies to catch my eye, thanks to its pretty orange shade, was the Nico shirt. This spaghetti strap top is certainly Spring and Summer-ready and comes in five standard mesh sizes (XXS-L) with two nifty alpha layers to help with the fitting. The alpha layers are split according to size with sizes XXS-M sharing one alpha layer and the L size with a larger one.  As mentioned the !gO! store boasts several different dollarbies so if you love clothing in the Boho or Vintage style, spend some time taking a look around.

Speaking of Vintage

While I’ve talked about Faida’s Vintage Gacha Fair gacha offering in my last post, I thought that the free gift that they’ve kindly put out at their stall deserved a mention as well. I’m always looking for a good pair of pants and the steamy leather pack certainly fit the bill nicely. While capris can be a rather iffy subject (we all have that one style of clothing that’s pretty low on our list right?) for me, I did like how these ended in soft tiered fabric. Not only did it add a nice feminine touch to the outfit, it also provided a dash of patterns (tatarn) to what would have otherwise been an outfit comprised of only solid colors. The steamy leather capris come in five standard mesh sizes (XXS-L) with an alpha layer also included in the gift package. These capris are one of two gifts at Faida’s stalls and let’s just say the other is really great if you roleplay. The Vintage Gacha Fair ends on the 19th so that means it’s only a couple of days more for you to scoop up gifts and play some great gacha machines.

Hunting for shoes

In lieu of pink sneakers, pretty and well made blue ones will do just fine. When I saw the ad for Madison keds by Wicked on my flickr feed, I knew I had to have them for my growing and growing and growing collection. It was pretty exciting to realize that these sneakers would be available for just 1L for the Into the Blue Hunt and you’ll get not one but two different pairs in the prize package. I’m wearing the jeans version in the picture above and while the shot doesn’t do the pair justice there are pretty scalloped flowers on the body of the sneakers. You don’t need mesh feet to slip into these sneakers as the prize comes along with an alpha layer and shoe base. The Madison keds themselves have a resize scrip in them for easy fitting and permissions are set to copy so you can make backups. The Into the Blue hunt is ending on the 29th of this month so get out your nets and hut out your blue butterflies by then and while you’re at Wicked slap their no group needed mini mania. They have lucky chairs too!

And that’s a wrap. The chores are done and all of the animals look like they’re going behave (for now) all that’s left is convincing Damon over here that Halloween is not for several months. Someone tell him that his puppy face is not enough for people to give him candy out of season; please? Oh and before I leave, here’s a closer look at the Madison keds to give you a better idea of the design on them and a look into the other pair that you’re in store for should you decide to hunt these out at Wicked.

The Best Of You

Snapshot_016

 Like watching paint dry…

Sitting here waiting for my jeep to dry out (yeah, it’s still very soggy) is like watching paint dry. I’ve been trying to keep myself busy around the man cave tinkering on projects. I’ve taken a hiatus from the whole mesh head thing (let’s not go there).  I also went out on a hunt to occupy my time.  I made a few stops on The Best of You Hunt and put together an outfit that I can knock around the garage in. At AmAzInNg CrEaTiOnS I came across the Open Front Standing Collar Shirt. I found the Straight Fit Black Men’s Jeans at Dixie Designs and at Lady Dragon’s Design I scored the GreenFlo Shit Kickers. All the hunt gifts on The Best of You Hunt are $1L each.  Oh and if you are thinking about nosing around my man cave, just remember, Chomper is always on duty….

High Glam

High Glam
Hello Hello Fab Free’rs, is it really Monday already? I have no idea where the weekend went, which at one point in my life might have meant I had a really fun weekend. These days, not so much! Ha! I did have a few moments to myself to do a little shopping, because really, in a perfect world that’s what weekends would be for.

High Glam

In honor of the recently celebrated Women’s Day, Hilly Haalan put out a special FREE group gift at the shop’s landing point. I do love that we have a day to honor the women of the world. I am also of the opinion that every day is Women’s Day however. All day, e’ery day! So while I didn’t get to this gift in time for the official celebration day, I’m excited to show this cute cropped sweater just the same. The gift top comes in fitted mesh sizes for the major mesh bodies, as well as a fitmesh size for classic avatars that has a matching alpha. This is a FREE group gift. You will need to join the Hilly Haalan group, which is also FREE to join.

Pixie Fluff

If you’re wondering about this fabulously green hair, it’s at the March round of The Arcade. I’m a sucker for cute hair in general, but this style by Clawtooth was a need-to-have! The Clawtooth machine at The Arcade has 2 hairstyles, this one is called Pixie Fluff, love that, and it comes with an additional hud so you  can change the color of the little clip on the side. The Clawtooth gacha at The Arcade is 75 lindens per play.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Hair – Clawtooth: Pixie Fluff (8: Magic Pack) – 75L/play @The Arcade

Twisted Trinity

Snapshot_006
Hey there FabFree! Yep… I’m up to no good again!  You’ll have to please excuse my delinquent behavior today.  I’m just trying tirelessly to get a certain hot copper assigned to my beat.  I’ll risk the arrest, in fact – I’m kind of counting it.

It was perfect timing that Sn@tch had the Twisted Trinity Outfit I am wearing today set out as a free Twisted Hunt prize, just when I was needing a bad girl ensemble!  This set is worth the challenge of the hunt as it is packed full of goodies!

What Twisted Trinity Includes:

  • System Black Latex Suit / Omega Appliers
  • Shades
  • Choker
  • Hair in white & black ( I wore white and was able to retexture it to blonde with the edit feature 😉 )
  • Platform Boots

Good luck and happy hunting!

Day of the Night Elf

Day of the Night Elf

Springtime in Darnassus…

After seeing Kat’s post [HERE], I got a yearning for my World of Warcraft days. The battles, the never-ending quests, trade chat …, the raid wipes… ok .. not so much of a yearning, but a fond remembrance. I too headed down to Feyline Fashions and found the male gift for the Into the Blue Hunt.  The Reilly Dusk Outfit is put on with Omega Appliers (something I’m still learning… don’t ask about last weeks beard dilemma 😖) and also has some accessories to complement the look. This gift and all the other gifts on the Into the Blue Hunt are just $1L each. I don’t know why people would invest so much time in a game… seriously…  😉

On Patrol

On Patrol

Attention…

…We are on the lookout for a stolen Jeep… Seriously, being on patrol in this part of town is not a fun shift. I’ve seen bodies, burned vehicles, vandalized buildings and that was just at the station house. I may not have the best beat to patrol, but I look my finest in the FREE group gift I found at Brii Underground. The Policeman Uniform comes in a fitted mesh size along with sizes XS-XL. Accessories include a cap, handgun and sunglasses. Now put your hands in the air ( like you just don’t care)…
