The Perfect Day for Sunflowers

A Perfect Day for Sunflowers

 

Hey, Happy FabFree People! This isolation thing isn’t so bad. Not with so many Hunts and Faires and events going on here on the Grid. I heard a rumor that one High School is even going to hold a Prom here in Second Life! Wouldn’t that be cool? I’m not heading off to relive my high school days but I am taking advantage of all the other fun stuff!

Sunflowers

Like the nifty “Gacha Life” faire. This month’s theme is ‘country life’ so you’ll find lots of sweet simple outfits like this one from Blonde Queen. This is the “April Dress” Gacha and it will only set you back 69L per play. I pulled a few times… all of the dresses are cute but I really wanted this sunflowers one. Usually I don’t play for the Rares… but I got lucky this time and got it!

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Venus
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique

and Sun hats

Speaking of lucky… I headed over to the GachaLand event today as well. I almost always play the hair gachas ’cause… you know… hair!  I dropped my Lindens into the “Spring Picnic” Gacha from Limerence and bingo! I got the Rare Aleksandra hair and sun hat with the fatpack of hair colors.  I don’t always like to show the Rares from a gacha because not everyone will pull them. But forgive me this one time cause this hat is so stinkin’ cute!

There are two common styles and two Rares to win for a per play cost of 75L.

Wicked

Steam Hunt 1

Hello Faboulouses! I don’t know if any of you readers are familiar with the book and musical Wicked, but this post was based on it. The novel’s protagonist, called Elphaba, is based on the wicked witch from the Wizard of Oz. Now I look just like her- witchy green skin and all- except I’m in steampunk attire too! I’ll be showing off this green skin 75 L promo, some more freebies from the steam hunt and a free hair in this post. Buckle up; this is a long one!

More Steam Hunting

I finished the Steam Hunt IV, and this is an outfit I came up with using the goodies from the hunt! I am featuring the free hunt prizes from Razmataz, Prism Designs, Dragon Lady’s Closet, Adele Arts, Pixel Box, Destiny’s Designs, and Sweet Revolutions. The STEAM XV’s grid-wide hunt is free and going on until March 31st- so get out there hunting to get these cool finds!

First off- my outfit is the prize from Destiny’s Designs. The top is a system top I have applied using bakes on mesh (BOM), and the skirt comes in fitmesh and mesh standard sizes (S-XL) which will fit a variety of mesh avatars with some help from your alpha hud. The lantern I am holding is one of five prizes from Pixel Box on the hunt. I also used one of the “Steampunk poses” from Razmataz in this shot.

The gate in behind me is the prize from Sweet Revolutions– it can be rezzed anywhere and be used for landscaping or sim-building- how cool is that!

Steam Hunt 2/Ritual Skin

This dashing hat, which includes a top hat for men as well, is the prize from Dragon Lady’s Closet and you can find these chic boots from the prize box from Prism Designs. Underneath my skirt, I am wearing some lovely omega applier tights which are in the hunt gift from Adele Arts.

Estha & Osha

I stumbled across a promo at Ritual Skins right now, where you can get 2 skins for the low price of 75 Linden. I am currently wearing the BOM version of the skin, but it also comes with a number of head appliers, body appliers, ear appliers and omega if you haven’t switched over to BOM yet. The skin comes in 2 shades: Estha and Osha, and you can wear the skin with freckles, without freckles and with black or white brows. I am currently wearing Estha. The skin can be worn as part of a fantasy outfit and the duo even includes elf or faerie ears. The shade of both skins is green, and it’s really beautiful. It reminds me of the character Elphaba from the book and musical Wicked, which I love. This green skin duo will be 75L until Midnight SLT on Friday, March 27th. As far as I know, there will be a weekly promo at Ritual for this prize so keep an eye out- especially if you love fantasy skins.

Head Appliers Included

  •  LAQ
  • Genus
  • Lelutka
  • Catwa
  • Omega

Body Appliers Included

  • Maitreya
  • Belleza
  • Slink
  • Tonic
  • Omega
  • V-Tech
  • AMD Bump

Ear Appliers Included

  • Soul Ears

Green Locks

It isn’t easy being green, especially when you don’t have much hair to match your own skin in your inventory. Luckily Firelight! still has their free group gift out from March 2019 which is a beautiful long and green hairstyle for women. There’s a whole bunch of other gifts to grab while you’re there too! There’s even a brand new green hairstyle to match this skin!

Thanks for reading, Fab Free!

Beach Bunny Babe

Beach Bunny Babe

The beaches of Second Life have always been one of my favourite places to forget everything about RL.  The sunsets are always perfect, the water is always the right temperature, and my outfit is always on point!  It’s also quite often free, because hey…it’s me!

Summer Feels

So, it’s snowing in my part of the real world today.  I knew I needed to head somewhere balmy in SL to make up for all the white stuff falling from the sky!  Luckily for me, the 35L Welcome Spring Event going on until March 31st has got me ready for just such an occasion!  I headed over there, joined their free group and clicked on the gift boxes at each booth!  Today I’m showing you…

  • FREE Dress by Melt sized for Ebody, Freya, Hourglass, Isis, Maitreya, Slink, Venus
  • FREE Hair and Hat by Alantori with a full fatpack of hair colours (there’s also a male hair at their booth!)

There are also lots of great deals to be had!  What goodies will you find at the 35L Welcome Spring Event?

Irish Chaos

Irish Chaos

Who’s in the mood to start up the round of seasonal St Paddy’s Day celebrations and freebies? I know I am! With only 3 days left until this fun holiday, lets dig into the Irish-themed goodies! I have a free St Paddy’s day gift to share from Chaotic, as well as news about other gifts you can find at their store.

A Celtic Lass

Right now you can get a cute and free St. Paddy’s day outfit at Chaotic. It includes a green dress with gold celtic prints on it, and a leprechaun hat. It looks great! I have some Irish roots in my lineage, so I always enjoy finding these Irish-inspired outfits! To get this outfit, simply click the 0L vendor in the room that contains their new releases. There is a small picture of the outfit on the vendor, so it shouldn’t be hard to miss.

Sizes Included

  • Maitreya
  • Belleza (Venus, Isis & Freya)
  • Slink (Physique and Hourglass)
  • EVE (Slim & Pulpy)

{Chaotic} Gifts

Chaotic has a lot of other free gifts available through their group and through other free-themed groups. When you enter the store, there will be a large vendor which displays their monthly group gift, a lovely short dress that was featured on Fab Finds this month.

If you turn left into the next room from the entrance, you will also find a large wall with various free or almost-free groups such as the SLMB group or the Fitmesh Fanatics group. In case you aren’t sure which group each gift is set to, you can left-click the vendor and check the edit menu and look under group in the object description. Most of the gifts in this room were set to a free group, so I left Chaotic with a lot of new gifts updated for my mesh body! Most of these gifts are sized for: Maitreya, Belleza (Venus, Isis & Freya), Slink (Physique and Hourglass), and some also come in The Mesh Project (TMP), Tonic (Curvy & Fine) and EVE (Slim & Pulpy).

Do you wear Slink or a Classic AVI?

Only last note I will mention about some free gifts you can grab at Chaotic will be useful to those of you who wear Slink mesh bodies, slink feet, or classic avatars. In the room near the entrance where the monthly group gift is, there is a scrolling vendor with a massive sign that says “FREE” on it in capital letters. You can scroll through this and find tonnes of older gifts from the store. Most of these items are shoes and outfit for slink or clothes fitted for system avatars. To get these items, you will need to activate the Chaotic group tag. The Chaotic group is free to join, so you won’t break the bank on this one!

I hope you have fun at Chaotic, Fab Free!

Through Anything

Through Anything

No matter what, my guy and I can make it through anything. Through thick and through thin, through the crashing of planes, the exploding of bombs, a new world regime! Anything at all could happen, and we’d come out on top, and look awesome while doing so. Okay, I admit that was a bit dramatic, but thanks to Second Life we can live through our stories. Thanks to Contraption, DRD, and Birth, we can look the part too!

I do love it when Blue and I find unique, whimsical, and otherwise outside the ordinary items inexpensively or better yet for free in Second Life.  Keep reading for info about each of these fantastic group gifts, and peep the full list of credits and links at the end. Then you can go on your own adventures.

Contraption

The foundation of my look for this post, and Blue’s, is this amazing jacket by Contraption. Not only is it highly detailed, it comes sized to fit both male and female avatars. It also includes a hud that allows you to change the metallic embellishments to gold or silver. This special edition version of the “Atreus Waistcoat” is free to all Le’Homme group members for the month of February. The Le’Homme Magazine group is free to join. You’ll find this cool gift waiting for you at Contraption behind the desk.

Sizes Included: Belleza Jake, Signature Gianni, Slink Physique Male, Slink Hourglass, Maitreya Lara (+Flat Chest Size), Belleza Freya

L'HOMME FEB 2020 GROUP GIFT: Atreus Waistcoat *MACHINA* edition

DRD

Death Row Designs aka DRD recently put out this cool as hell unisex cap as a free group gift. I love all the individual patches that add the detail of this hat. It comes in black, and navy blue. It’s able to be resized, and can be worn by male and female avatars. To get yours, you’ll need to join the free-to-join Death Row Designs group and click the gift vendor while wearing your group tag.

Security Officer Cap - groupgift

Birth

Finally, the detailed mandala-like design shaved into the back of Blue’s head just so happens to be a current Mens Stuff Hunt gift available at Birth. The Mens Stuff Hunt is a free hunt that runs until February 29th. This unique unisex hair base prize at Birth comes in 3 styles, each able to be tinted.

Appliers Included: Catwa, Omega

Hunt HintA particularly kinky blush.

Oh Paris- the City of Love!

Parisian Look

Happy day-before-Valentine’s Day, Fab Free!

Today, my post is inspired by the one place on earth where it is the season of love and romance all year- Paris! I put together this Parisian look by combining some of the free gifts I collected at the Valentine’s Shop and Hop! You can go there, collect the goodies and walk out looking like you stepped out of France! I may look like a Parisian now, but the only French thing about me is my love of baguette and brie cheese. Aside from that, however, these items are super cute and they are perfect for Valentine’s Day!

The Free Hair and Beret

Perhaps what tops off this outfit is the Beret Accessory included in this free hair which you can get at Vanity Hair’s booth at the Shop & Hop. The hair is called “Winter is Coming” and it includes a colour change HUD and a tinting HUD which allows you to change the hair and the hat to any colour. You can find the Vanity Hair booth in the Tinseled sim.

A Cute Set from Pixicat

The top and shorts I am wearing is the lovely gift from Pixicat- called “soft set” in red stripes. It’s sort of artsy and I feel like it matches the hair super well! Get the free gift from Pixicat at the Aurelian sim of the Shop and Hop.

Sizes Included: Belleza Freya, Maitreya, Slink Hourglass & Physique

A Pearl and Heart Crystal Necklace

What says love and romance more than pearls and crystal hearts? This gift from Supernatural, the “Kyary Necklace” will be the best gift to yourself for this Valentine’s! The necklace can be found in the Tinseled sim of the Shop and Hop.

Have a fun Valentine’s Day, Fab Free!

Christmas Eve Eve

Christmas Eve Eve

Happy Christmas Eve Eve Fab Free!  I’m all bundled up and ready for some winter fun!  Are you ready for some pretty bomb freebies?  I know I am!

Shiny But Not too Shabby

We’ve been so spoiled by events recently!  The gifts keep on coming, happily, and I found another pile of goodies over at Shiny Shabby!  Join their free group and you’ll be swimming in even more free gifts.  Here’s some of the fun stuff I found:

  • FREE dress by Valentina E.  sized for Maitreya
  • FREE Hair and Hat by Navy & Copper in a full fatpack of colours, with a texture HUD to change the colour of the hat
  • FREE Necklace by Amias (it sparkles!)

Shiny Shabby is open until January 15th!

Don’t Forget Your Coat

I have always wanted a ridiculous velvet coat.  That may not be entirely true, but seeing this one I picked up at Villena, I’m starting to feel that way!  This jacket is the newest group gift there, which I got by joining the group for 100L.  It comes with the cool wrapped lights that twinkle!  This awesome gift comes sized for Freya, Isis, Maitreya and Hourglass.

Have a great eve eve!
