Once Upon a Midnight Dreary

Nevermore

Hello Fabulouses!  Since Ripley and I found some fantastic hunt prizes lately, we decided to hit the trail once again.  This time, we set out along the Quoth the Raven Hunt path.  Over at Little 2 Large, we discovered this fabulous gown, and it only cost 1 little Linden dollar, plus a bit of searching time.  On the wall of the shop, you’ll find a hunt poster, which contains a helpful hint in case you get stuck.

With Many a Flirt and Flutter, In There Stepped a Stately Raven

The stately raven over at Little 2 Large actually brought *more* than just the gown in my picture.  In addition to a splendid frock, you’ll also receive male and female Dinkies outfits (Dinkies are these absolutely adorable mesh kitty avatars that you may have seen around the grid), a coordinating Nevermore men’s suit, and a petite Nevermore mini dress.  The additional prizes are no transfer, but if your man happens to come along with you on the hunt, for just 1 more Linden dollar, you can look all matchy-matchy.  As you can see from my picture, the gown starts out black at the bodice, but transitions into a soft gray texture, which reminded me of watercolors.  I really love the intricate black lace that adorns the sexy, full length slits in the skirt as well as the generous hemline.  The “sleeves” on the bodice resemble black feathers, and the package also included shoulder feathers that I opted not to wear.  For just a dollar, this fabulous hunt prize will have you all set up for formal fall parties, whether you have a classic or a mesh body avatar.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fitmesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layer)
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Physique

Ripley has taken to growling at that beguiling Raven, for that bird (to quote from Poe himself):

“…never flitting, still is sitting, STILL is sitting…

just above my chamber door…”

I’d better see if I can help the pupster escape unharmed from “The Raven.”  Until next time, happy hunting!

Rose Red

The Succubus
Hello There Fab Free, I hope your weekend has been fabulous. This slinky red dress by Scandalize had me feeling darkly romantic. It’s the free group gift at the Vanity Event. I paired it with this cool 10 linden skull septum piercing by Venge that I picked up at The Mad Circus Gacha. Keep reading for more information about these two fabulous finds, or scroll down to the credits to the where and how much. ❤

The Dress – This sexy red dress is the free Vanity Event group gift by Scandalize. You’ll find it waiting just inside the entrance to the event. Just join the free-to-join Vanity Event group, and click the gift vendor. The dress comes in the solid matte color shown, and a red glittery version.

Sizes Included: Belleza (Freya, Isis), Slink Hourglass, Maitreya Lara

The Piercing – I think this septum piercing by Venge added just the right amount of sinister to Pru’s look. The little skull has red jeweled eyes, and a red gemstone fangs. My apologies, my photo doesn’t convey either of those details. This cool accessory is just 10 linden at The Mad Circus Gacha Fair.

Here are the details, enjoy!

The Sacred in the Ordinary

The Sacred in the Ordinary

I’m creeping around the woods again, and I promise I’m not doing too much witchery this Saturday evening.  I mean, only the regular every day kind of magic that involves bonfires in the night and the crunch of leaves underfoot.  It’s always important to find the sacred in the ordinary!

The Seasons Story

Fall is my favourite season – sparkling with golden hues and delicious wonders.  The Seasons Story agrees with me, because as I mentioned the other day, all the creators (who are actually celebrating the event’s anniversary) have placed a myriad of gifts out for one and all!  Just join their free group, and you’ll gain access to oh so many goodies.  Here’s what I’m showing you today!

  • Destiny Dress by MasKara (Sized for Freya and Maitreya)
  • Leaf Earrings by Pure Poison
  • Leaf with heart cutout by Sari-Sari
  • Lipstick by Amara Beauty (with appliers for Catwa & Lelutka)

Head over to The Seasons Story to pick up all your goodies – the event closes on October 31st!

Delacruz Park

Delacruz Park
Hello and happy weekend Fab Free’rs! I’m so excited about bringing you posts not only about free and fabulously inexpensive items, but places you can go to have fun without spending your linden as well. Delacruz Park is a recent discovery of mine that I believe is one of Second Life’s many lesser-know but amazing locations. It’s a small but fully functioning amusement and adventure park. Most if not all of the rides and attractions are for sale, but you can experience them for free in this beautifully landscaped setting. You can even see the neon blue roller coaster in the background of the above photo! Also, I love that Delacruz Park is all decked out for the fall season.

Delacruz Park Ferris Wheel View
Delacruz Park is family friendly, however it would also be a fun spot for date night or an afternoon with friends. I already mentioned the roller coaster, this second photo was taken from high up in the working Ferris Wheel. If you look closely you can spot a few of the other attractions such as the Hot Air Balloon ride, the must-see mini Stone Hinge setup. I could continue to list the number of things to see and do at Delacruz park, however half the fun is discovering all this beautiful spot has to offer. Also, I’m sure I’d absentmindedly leave something out!

Along with this destination recommendation, Pru is wearing a couple of past group gifts that are still available. If you’re interested in her look, you can check the credits below!

Hello October

Hello October
Welcome back to the blog Fab Free’rs, and a special hello to the month of October! Sings “It’s the most wonderful time of the year…” Honestly, October is my December, and Halloween is my Christmas. Alright, I won’t subject you to any more of the thought of me singing, but I am still excited about the group gifts from Safira and HEC I have to share with you.

The Top – Love reminded me about this recent free group gift out at Safira. She really knows my style so well! The top has a satin-like look to it and is plain in the front with this cutely spooky skull cutout pattern in the back. This cute top comes with a color change hud with quite a few solid color options. The Safira group is free to join at this time, and there are quite a few group gifts available.
Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Freya, Isis), Slink Hourglass

The Bracelet – One of the most recent group gifts at HEC is this cute bracelet. The letters spell the word HOT which gives this accessory a little sass! This group gift at HEC comes in a left and a right so you can wear it on either wrist, or both. It’s also able to be resized and is unisex. The bracelet has a color change hud with the ability for you to choose a custom color for the letters and the band. The HEC group has a one time join fee of 25 linden.

Here are the details, enjoy!

Hi Again Fab Free’rs! Halloween is so close I can almost taste it. It’s genuinely my favorite time of year, and I am so excited to be able to share with you this delightfully ghoulish group gift from Cureless along with the perfect accessory from CHAIN. I hope you love this festively macabre look as much as I do.

Cureless – Clearly the designer at Cureless is as excited about Halloween as I am. Just a few days ago they sent out a notice announcing this creepy yet beautiful group gift. The gift is this ribbons and roses embellished baby-doll style top with the skeletal torso. It includes a single mesh attachment, and a color change hud to customize the look. At this time the Cureless group is 99 lindens to join, and there are several previous group gifts still available.

CHAIN – Another gorgeous group gift from CHAIN, this linked chain choker reminds me of one I’ve admired at Tiffany’s. It’s a timeless piece that could easily be worn with a casual outfit as well as a formal gown. This group gift also comes with a color change hud with several metallic options so it can match just about anything. The CHAIN Store group has a one time join fee of 100 linden, and there are several previous group gifts still available.

Here are the details, enjoy!

Fab Free Designer of the Week – 09/29/2018 – Artizana

Hello Fab Free’rs, and happy weekend! I am excited to share with you another designer of the week, Artizana. Seriously, how pretty is the photo of the Artizana exterior and the front desk?! I have to tell you, the grounds surrounding the Artizana store are as equally worth exploring as the shop itself. The interior reminds me of the art nouveau style. Artizana is self described as a fashion house established in 2007 with fashion for both men and women. Yes, you read that right, there is menswear at Artizana.  Their unique style is inspired by African culture, so expect to see lots of vivid prints and vibrant colors.

Artizana’s in-world group has a one time join fee of 99 linden. If you shop with your Artizana group tag, you’ll get a 5% discount on purchases. Also there are quite a few Artizana VIP gifts, including one men’s semi-formal outfit. Each of the items pictured above is a free VIP group gift. In the same area of the store you’ll also find a few lucky letter chairs, and additional gifts for other store associated groups.

As you can see there are quite a few gift items to be had at Artizana. In this area is also of course where you’ll find the exclusive Fabulously Free in SL group gift. This gift is free to all Fab Free group members. You’ll need to wear your Fab Free group tag to claim this gift. If you’re not already a Fabulously Free in SL group member, not to worry, the Fab Free group is always free to join. Kat did a beautiful job of showing of the Fab Free gift from Artizana in her post “Beautiful Blue.”

Well Composed

I love finding “new to me” shops in Second Life. There’s probably millions of shops and designers… you’d think it’d happen more often…. Anyway, it’s still something to celebrate. especially when the new designs are as sweet as this one.

Composer Girls Fashion…

… is my new favorite find! When you join the Group, which is FREE, you can pick up several past gifts and the current one. The gift I picked is called ‘Cashmere’ and it’s a doozy. Not only do you get the cute corset top and the jeans, you get the shoes and the choker AND the bracelet! That’s a complete outfit for us!

Sizes Included ( Clothes and Shoes )

  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • SLink

Happy Birthday to Us!

Even though Second Life’s birthday was a little bit ago, Tableau Vivant is still celebrating. My new style, simply called SL14, is the free Group gift for us at the Tableau Vivant main store. The Group is just 50L to join. You get this sleek style and HUDs for Black and White, Blondes, Browns and Reds.  Since we are getting away from the Birthday celebrations, this gift may not be available for much longer so don’t delay.

Fly Away With Me

FabFree: Fly Away With Me

Hello there Fabulouses! Today I bring you sweet, sweet news of the free and affordable!  I put together a little outfit with a 5L dress, free earrings and free hair, which I will tell you about below 🙂

The 5L Dress

If you happen to have 5L jingling around in your SL pockets, click over the the z00m marketplace store, and check out the Azenha Dress!  This dress is fitted for Maitreya and comes with a texture change HUD including 6 texture options.  While you are in there, check out their other listings – because there are quite a few low priced items.  Note – The sweater is an addition from my inventory and is not included.

No One Will Know –  Free Hair

None of your friends will ever believe this long wavy hairstyle was free…  I was lucky enough to stumble upon and “L” for the Tara hairstyle in the Brunettes pack at Little Bones on the lucky board.  You don’t need to be in the Little Bones group to participate in the lucky boards, and there are rotating hairstyle prizes in a variety of colour packs!

Accessorize For FREE

With my hair tucked so daintily behind my ear, I had no choice but to find a pretty pair of earrings to accessorize with, and stopped in at Elle Boutique.  There, I found the Greenly Earrings that come with a massive texture change HUD for metals and flower colours.  These earrings will match with everything, and they are available as a free group gift with a free group join!  The vendor ad is shown below so you can see the detailing close up 🙂
