Two if by Sea

Captain’s Log: The Nineteenth of March, Year Unknown
My Co-Captain and I set sail for an uncharted destination just a few days ago. Today, for the first time, we found land. Our steam ship ran aground in an unfamiliar location. Where, or even when our time travels have brought us, we cannot be certain. All that is certain is that we found our adventure, and we look absolutely smashing while doing so.

Hello Fab Free’rs! Welcome back to the blog, I promise you haven’t stumbled over a strange steam punk novella. I was just having a little fun with some of the fantastic Seam Hunt prizes my guy and I gathered. His hat, and our amazing jackets are free Seam Hunt prizes. In addition to the hunt freebies, I picked up an incredibly detailed free steam paddle boat that was just too cool to not share with you. I hope you enjoy these fabulous finds, and maybe even go on an adventure or two of your own.

The Hat – I think bowler style hats are really cool for steam punk attire. This particular Steam Hunt gift hat by Miss Darcy has some extra steamy details, both literally and figuratively. This cool hat has a “steam” effect that comes from the wheel handle on top of the hat when worn, not to mention the goggles which complete the look. You have until March 31st to hunt down the little brown cog and claim your free gift.

The Coat – I still cannot get over the gorgeous details of these tailcoats by Contraption. This coat comes in male and female mesh sizes, and includes a cummerbund applier, as well as a system layer cummerbund. Additionally there is a color change hud that lets you change the color of the ascot/scarf and the little pin in the center of the scarf. Lastly, each of the sizes has an additional “bound” option for a corseted look. The best part is that this highly detailed piece is Contraption’s free Steam Hunt prize.

Sizes Included: Belleza Freya, Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass, Slink Male, Signature (Geralt, Gianni), Belleza Jake

The Spirit of Adventure

The Steam Paddle Boat – Believe it or not this ultra cool vessel is not only completely free, it has full permissions. I stumbled across this awesome freebie while exploring sims. This free boat can be found at the Alpha Tribe sim. Simply pay the boat 0 linden and you’ll find a copy of it in the objects folder of your inventory. Along with being cool to look at, this steam paddle boat has some animated parts, and 2 sit poses. There is a single pose at the steering wheel, and one up top at the organ. Lastly, since this freebie has full permissions, you can customize it however you like.

P.S. If you dig Blue’s waxed mustache, it’s a freebie too! You can pick it up for free at Kauna. Afterall, dapper gentleman would be complete without one.

Here are the details, may you have happy adventures!

Shall We Dance, M’Lady?

A Night at the Ball

Hello there, Fabulouses! It’s not often that I opt to role play in SL, but Ripley happened to catch wind of fantastic his/her free matchy-matchy 18th century outfits that Stan and I just had to check out. If you are a role player in SL, these might be just up your alley! Each gift package includes everything you need from head to toe – all for free with no group join required!

For the Lady…

From wig and hat down to slippered feet, the ladies’ gift from St. Petersburg in SL/Chateau D’Esprit is a complete 18th century outfit perfect for a formal ball. I chose to wear just the gown, gloves, skirt, sleeves, bow and Sacque (kind of like a cape in back), but the gift folder also includes a color change wig, wrap, cap, stockings and slippers. I just love the frilly trim and lace as well as the generous hoop style skirt. I felt so elegant while wearing it! The best part of all was it was completely free and I didn’t have to join any group to pick it up!
Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic clothing layers (gloves, shoe base, stockings, top, underpants, underskirt, alpha layer)
  • Applier for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink
  • Omega Advanced Applier HUD
  • Sacque
  • Skirt
  • Right and left sleeves
  • Wig with color change HUD and hairbase
  • Cap
  • Slippers

And For the Gentlemen…

Although he grumbled about wearing a wig, I thought Stan looked dashing in his suit, which is a free gift from St. Petersburg in SL/Chateau D’Esprit. The men’s gift doesn’t have as many separate components like the ladies’ version, but it looks just as spectacular, and includes everything needed for a fantasy evening. From the powdered wig down to the buckled shoes, Stan was all set to go. He really appreciated the fact that he could throw all the clothing on with just one click. There was no need to mess around with adding different layers or separate clothing items. He simply had to decide to go with either the standard or no lace version of the suit and then add his wig. No fuss, no muss and then he was pacing, waiting for me to finish getting ready. Isn’t that the way it always goes? 😉

What’s Included:

  • M Suit
  • M Suit (no lace)
  • Alpha layer
  • Wig

We’re off to enjoy an evening of waltzing and role play. Until next time, happy shopping!

Looking for Winter

Looking for Winter

As much as I’d like to pretend we get real winter weather here in Texas… we don’t. I have a real life closet full of cute winter boots and coats that get no love. If I want snow… I have to get on the grid!

Fuzzy Elegance

It seems like an oxymoron, but this fantastic hat, coat and boots set is just that. Fuzzy and elegant. This is the ‘Fur Pocket Winter Coat’ set and it is one of the In-Store gachas at Amiable’s main store. You get the coat, the boots, the great fuzzy hat AND the sweater all for 65L per play. I was lucky enough to pull one of the two rares and got the cream colored coats and a HUD for the sweater with eight color choices. Amiable has a ton of gacha machines in store right next to the ton of past Group Gifts, all ready for us bargain hunters!

Sizes Included

  • One size Fit Mesh (I had no problems fitting it to Maitreya at all)

Come and Get Me!


Come Get Me

Hello and Happy Friday Fab Free! Truthfully, it’s been ages since I was somewhere I could engage in a good old fashioned snowball fight. I kind of miss being able to play in the snow. Thankfully, Second Life has me covered. Here I get all the snow I want and none of the cold! Today I am excited to share with you another one of the many free gifts from the Pose Fair, and a group gift hairstyle from Pink Hustler.

Hat & Hair – On a whim I stopped by Pink Hustler and spotted this pretty hairstyle with the knitted cap. I think it’s a cute departure from the winter beanies. This hairstyle is free to Pink Hustler group members and includes 2 color change huds. One hud has solid hair color options, while the other has a mix of ombre color choices. The Pink Hustler group is 500 linden to join, however there are quite a few free group gifts to be had including hairstyles, and nails.

Pose & Props – This fun snowball fight pose is by Juxtapose, and you can get it for free at the Pose Fair. This free Pose Fair gift by Juxtapose comes with wearable snowball props as well as the single static pose. To get your copy, head over to the Pose Fair and join the free-to-join Pose Fair group. Then click the giftbox at the Juxtapose booth while wearing your group tag.

Hygge the Days Away

Hygge the Day Away

That wintry feeling has permeated the land up here in the frozen North.  I’m feeling the need to hibernate just a little.  Nothing like a comfy outfit to keep the chill of the days at bay, while I hygge it up!

Sparkling Like Snow

My lingerie set is the brand new January group gift over at Sass!  It’s far too adorable to pass up, don’t you think?  I love the sparkly top an irrational amount.  I grabbed it by joining the Sass group for 50L, and then I paid the vendor 1L, which was then returned to me.  Sass is like clockwork with their group gifts, so this is a great group to join and stay in!

Sizes

  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass

Topping it Off

Of course, my hat and hair cannot go unmentioned.  Sintiklia have got a bunch of new group gifts out to celebrate the new year, as promised.  There are three different group gifts, and one free gift for everyone.  The hair comes with an extensive HUD to change the hair colour, as well as several different messages to display on the hat. To get this hairdo, I joined the Sintiklia group for 250 Lindens and clicked on the vendors.  There are loads of group gifts over at Sintiklia, so totally worth the join.  Also, there are a whole bunch of gifts for everyone, whether you join the group or not!

Don’t freeze!

Winter Wonderful

Winter Wonderful
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! I hope everyone who celebrates has been enjoying the Winter Holiday season. If your family is anything like mine, Christmas does not end on the 25th, but rather lasts through the weekend. Traveling to visit extended family and extending the celebration, there are plenty of opportunities to wear your not-so-ugly ugly Christmas sweaters. This perfect for visiting friends and family holiday look is all thanks to a recent group gift at HEC and the 2018 dollarbie holiday hairstyle from Exxess.

The Sweater & Skirt – This “Ugly Christmas Sweater” dress is a current group gift at Hot Elegant Clothing. It comes in several mesh sizes, and is suitable for classic and mesh avatars. It’s also free to all HEC group members, and the HEC group is just 25 linden to join. This sweater dress gift comes with a highly detailed hud that lets you customize the color of the sweater separately from the skirt, and adjust things like brightness, and opacity. There are also a few preset options for both the sweater and the skirt. To get yours, be sure to wear your HEC group tag and use the scroll-able group gift vendor to pick up your free gift.
Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), eBody, Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), Classic (for non mesh avatars)

Hairstyle w/Hat – This year’s Christmas Hairstyle by Exxess is now available on the Marketplace for just 1 linden. Cute and winter-y, the hairstyle comes with a color change hud with 2 menus of solid and mixed hair colors to pick from. The best part about the hair is there are 2 versions, a static version, and a “breeze” option that makes it look as though the hair is gently blowing in a breeze. Additionally the Exxess X-Mas hairstyles from previous years are still available for just 1 linden on the Marketplace.

Here are the details, enjoy!

Wintry Afternoon Walk

Wintry Afternoon

Hello Fabulous Readers!  I hope you are all set for the upcoming holiday.  Ripley and I have been running quite a few errands and sneaking in some last minute shopping.  In the midst of all the holiday bustle, I wanted to make sure I told you about a sweet free outfit that you can pick up just for being members of Fabulously Free in SL as well as some free hair too.

A Little Christmas Dreaming

The Xmas Dream outfit from Alias! is perfect for the inevitable last minute trips to the store in the upcoming days.  This free gift features a thick, long sleeve sweater, curve-hugging capris and high heel sandals.  A texture change HUD for the top allows you to select from 8 different texture patterns, so it’s kind of like getting 8 sweaters in one.  I really like the generous length of the sleeves and the high collar.  The jean capris have upturned hems that fall to about mid calf.  Although pretty heels were tucked inside the box, I opted to pull on a cozy pair of boots since I knew the pupster and I would be trekking through the snow.  The shoes really are super cute – I just couldn’t see wearing them for our stroll down the country lane.  To pick up a copy of this free outfit for yourself, just switch to your Fab Free group tag, teleport over to the Alias! shop and tap the vendor.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine
  • Shoes for Belleza, Maitreya, Slink, TMP, and Tonic

Santa’s Coming to Town

To add that extra touch of holiday spirit, I decided to wear another free group gift, the No Santa hat and hair from No.Match.  This is one of two hairstyles tucked inside the Carol Meets Santa gift box for members of the No.Match Update Group.  Although I think No Santa is intended for male avatars, it provided the perfect finishing touch for my casual shopping outfit.  A full fatpack of colors for the hair as well as a HUD containing twelve options for the hat’s texture make this a very versatile gift, indeed.  Although I opted not to wear it, the Carol hairstyle (also tucked inside the box) is a really pretty updo with curly locks, a jaunty texture-change bow, an optional pine branch add on, and Christmas earrings.  I’m including the vendor picture below so you can see both hairstyles.  To pick up a copy of Carol Meets Santa for yourself, you do need to be a member of the No Match Update Group, and there is a 50 Linden dollar join fee, but you get not one, but two free hairstyles, plus the opportunity to pick up more gifties in the future, so it’s well worth the price!

CAROL meets SANTA

Until next time, happy shopping!
