Speaking of Fae…

Fairy_001

Not long ago, I visited the Redeux event and showed off one of the free gifts I picked up in a post [here]. I’ve been unpacking boxes ever since. There are so many gifts that it seems I’ll be unpacking boxes for months! Luckily I managed to narrow down my findings to a few special ones to share with you. It’s not secret that I love roleplay and fantasy looks, so I was excited to put together a roleplay look for you. I helped it along with a group gift from a special store that you’ll want to pick up.

So versatile…

I stopped by Silvan Moon Designs to pick up the April Gift and discovered that the gift this month is really versatile. This little dress is a casual style that you could wear as a Boho dress if you were out-of-character, or you could doll it up with accessories to make a fae as I have done, or it has just enough of a traveler feel to create a gypsy. There are so many possibilities! The Silvan Moon Designs group has a one-time join fee of 500L, but you will get a quality gift each month to more than make up for the fee. This dress comes in sizes to fit Maitreya, Slink Original, and Slink Hourglass bodies.

Speaking of Fae…

So you know I revisited Redeux. I picked up my wings from Poet’s Heart. They are a beautiful pearlized shade of purple, draped in pearls. They include a color change hud for the pearls too! This is a free gift with your Redeux tag, and the Redeux gift is free to join.

What else?

What else did I get? I also nabbed some stone textures. A package of 18 really terrific ones to be exact. To get these, stop by the Timeless textures booth at Redeux and pick up the free gift there. You can see an example of one of the great looking textures behind me in these pictures.

Oh and one more thing…

I LOVE this necklace by Steelhead Outfitters. It fits perfectly and is another free gift from Redeux. This is another one of those gifts that is perfect for roleplay or everyday wear either one. It also includes a color change hud that allows you to change the color of the cord and the circular pendant both separately for lots of versatility! And don’t forget that it’s free!

The Rug – This fur rug is a FREE group gift from Zen Creations. The coffee and the pen have poses attached to them. The rug will give you a pen prop or a coffee mug to hold depending on which pose you choose. I just used my own pose to take this photo. The Zen Creations group is FREE to join.

The TopHilly Haalan has 3 FREE group gifts out, and this fun warm weather top is one of them. The top comes in several mesh sizes and has a color/texture change hud with tons of options.

Vintage Spring

Vintage
Hey there Fab Free’rs! I hope you enjoyed the weekend. I wanted to take a minute to share with you one more of the 10 linden gifts at the Up Event along with the Spring 2018 group gift from Vintage Touch. Both are nice, inexpensive items that if they are your style it would be a shame to miss out on.

The Outfit – Cynderella has this cute halter top and shorts set out at the Up Event for just 10 linden. The belted shorts and top are included in the same box. There are several inexpensive gifts at the Cynderella booth at Up. My apologies for not showing a better view of the cute dark denim shorts. Both the top and shorts come in several mesh sizes. There is no group required, just pay the gift box 10 linden and get your outfit. Also, there is an alpha layer included for the shorts.
Mesh Sizes Included: Fitmesh (xs-XL), Standard Mesh (xs -XL), Slink, Maitreya Lara

The Lounger – I think the rose floral print of this lounge chair from Vintage Touch is beautiful. This chair is the Spring 2018 group gift at Vintage Touch. It has several single poses for male and female avatars. To get  your copy head over to Vintage Touch and join the group. There is a one time join fee of 5 linden. Then click the gift vendor while wearing your group tag and the chair will be sent to you.

Here are the details, enjoy!

Fab Free Designer of the Week – 04/01/2018 -Z.O.E.

Z.O.E. Landing Point
Hello hello Fab Free! Thanks for being here. This week’s designer of the week is none other than Z.O.E. I have to tell you that  Z.O.E. is one of those shops that it is genuinely a pleasure to browse through. It is a shop that has a little bit of everything nestled neatly in the setting of a residential home. Shopping at Z.O.E. feels like you’re browsing through a quaint downtown shop in a small town. Much of what Z.O.E. has to offer is furniture and decor. You’ll also find commercial and residential builds, and even a small amount of men’s and women’s clothing.

Pictured above is the information area at the Z.O.E. landing point. Here you can access the shop Flickr, blog, and Facebook page. There’s also a convenient teleporter that will take you to building demos, and the clothing area on the second floor. Right next to this spot you can also purchase store gift cards.
Z.O.E. Gifts and Offers
The weekly sales at Z.O.E. are clearly marked, and not far from the landing point. There is also a group gift area. There you can join the Z.O.E. VIP group. This group is FREE to join. Z.O.E. VIP group members get discounts on new releases, discounts on regular purchases, store credit on purchases made while wearing the group tag, and group gifts. In this area is also where you’ll find the exclusive Fabulously Free in SL group gift from Z.O.E. It’s a super cute two-sided frame. The Fab Free group is always FREE to join. Also, don’t pass by the cute heart patterned pillow. It’s not only a cute decorative pillow, it’s a FREEbie!

Your Own Underdark!

In the dark_001

Your own Underdark…

It’s not often you get the chance to own your own Underdark, especially for the price of just 1L. Zyn is offering their Mini Underdark Skybox on the Marketplace for just that! 1L and it’s yours. It’s only 47 prim and it’s rather detailed, with multiple cavern rooms, a water pool, stalagmites and stalactites, mushrooms, lanterns, and more. The picture above is taken in part of one of the detailed caverns!

Ahhhh roleplay…

Roleplay is one of those fantastic past-times in Second Life and it’s always fabulous when you can come across some great gifts to add to your wardrobe. I stopped by the Menstuff lounge and there is a large assortment of menswear currently out that you can pick up for your one-time fee of 50L to the Menstuff group. Among the items was this “Morris” outfit. It’s really just a regular every day outfit, but since it doesn’t have any zippers and with the right accessories, I managed to turn it into a medieval one! It comes in a variety of mesh body sizes.

Outfit sizes available:

  • Classic XS-XL + alpha
  • Belleza
  • Gianni
  • Slink
  • TMP
  • Aesthetic

The details make the man

It’s the details that make this outfit work as a roleplay outfit. I stopped by Noble Creations and picked up some “details” to make this into a roleplay creation. The Noble Creations group is free to join and these gifts were free to pick up. I picked up the Prince in Leather neck piece to add over the top of the Morris shirt. I also picked up the Medici Pouch belt to add to my waist. Take note… this belt fit a little funny at first. I had to edit it to my shape, but it comes with a handy resizer that allows for resizing on all axises separately for a perfect fit!

The L’Homme Gift.

I think the L’Homme group gift from Noble Creations really makes this outfit. It’s a set of horned Bracers and Pauldrons that really stand out. You could add some weapons to this outfit to complete your look. Perhaps a shield and an axe or a sword and you’d be ready to go warrior! As always, the L’Homme group is free to join so this gift is free as well!

Happy roleplaying!

Al Fresco

Fresco

Greetings, fabulous readers! I’m dining “al fresco” today with some free home and garden finds from the Finders, Keepers St. Patrick’s Day Hunt. I also threw in a few fun group gifts for good measure. 🙂

St. Patrick’s Day Hunt items in the top photo:

  • Roawenwood – Farmhouse Rustic Dining Table & Chairs, Irish Stew and Irish Soda Bread
  • Apple Fall – Argentinian Malbec and Wine Glasses (included, not shown: a decanter of whiskey)

Group gifts in the top photo:

  • RaindaleWall Clock, Candlesticks, Tangerine Cake, and the Winter Rug
  • The Little BranchGolden Birch Trees (left side of photo; the tree with the white trunk)

The trees from The Little Branch are really lovely. They’re animated – meaning they gently sway in the virtual breeze – and you can click to change them with the seasons. Also in the folder is a little mesh hill, and the Buffalo Grass shown here (green and winter versions for both are included).

St. Patrick’s Day Hunt items in the lower photo:
