Crossbones

Snapshot_001

Good morning, FabFree! I’m feeling my Gothic side this morning, and I have just the FREE goodies to help you feel your Gothic side too! We going to make a two different stops and put together a fun FREE outfit.

First, head to Kreepshow Kouture, and slap the two Midnight Mania Boards. Both of them are FREE and do not require a group. It only takes 50 slaps to lock these babies down, and from what I saw yesterday, they lock down multiple times a day (unless that has changed since then). I’m showing you the Crossbone Cami, which is one of the two prizes you can win when the boards lock down.

Once you win the Cami, unboxing this jumper is quite a treat. It comes in all the standard fitmesh sizes, as well as Maitreya, and Slink and its own alpha is included as well.

My FREE Septum piercing is courtesy of Krova and is an SLB13 gift at We❤ RP. It was quite large when I put it on, making me believe it was intended for male avatars (it was also silver) but I happily discovered that it was modifiable. To get the look I wanted, I sized it down with some editing, added a gold tint to it, made it full bright to give it a bit of a “sheen” and voila! You may wish to make it other colors!

My necklace is yet another SLB13 gift FREE from We❤ RP… this time from Souzou Eien. This lacy Renaissance Pearls necklace added a feminine touch to my Gothic attire that I thought was just perfect. 😉

A Gypsy’s Tale

A Gypsy's Tale

Hello FabFree! I’m back again today with a few more goodies! I wanted to show you a lucky letter prize I picked up at PoshTale. I really love PoshTale clothing. It’s wonderfully versatile… working well as either modern attire or as roleplay outfits. My top is a perfect example. This Kasai Fringe Top is a FREE lucky letter board prize at PoshTale right now and would work well for either genre. No group is required, just some luck!

This is an applier top and includes appliers for Maitreya, Belleza, Slink, TMP, and Omega. You also get two color huds for each. The plain and patterned hud each offer 8 color choices, for a total of 16 different tops with this one applier. If this top doesn’t suit you, there are 3 other lucky letter boards currently at PoshTale for you to try your luck at.

My hair is a FREE SLB13 gift from Hairology. We’ve been showing you lots of pretty hair gifts from Hairology… this one is called “Unity” by Damselfly, and like all the other SLB13 gifts won’t cost you a single Linden. It comes in two sizes (one is to fit larger busts) and is a full fatpack of colors.

A Gypsy's Tale 2

A part of me has always been a bit of a Gypsy at heart… and perhaps that is why I love this gift from Cellar Door so much. I picked it up as part of the SLB13 celebrations at We❤ RP and it is yours FREE once you go to the Cellar Door booth there and click the cake and get your slice for your FREE gift. The box includes the necklace I am showing you, which is the rose gold color, as well as the necklace in black, bronze, gold, and silver.

I also picked up the Kunglers SLB13 gift while I was at We❤ RP. It is a really elaborate and beautiful pair of earrings called Eliza Leaf. They are shaped like leaves and are embedded with small opals and have rose quartz wired to the tops of the metal leaves. They are really beautiful. This is a FREE gift that you won’t want to miss.

If you are a photographer in Second life and you liked my poses for this post, consider stopping by the Cart Wash Sale where you can pick up several very nice poses. My poses are by Picture Perfect. The Cart has single poses, couple poses, and even a group pose… all for only 10L each!

Daydreaming

Day Dreaming

In real life it’s sweltering where I live today. Thankfully in second life it’s much cooler… and I can daydream a little. I got a notice from Pure Poison that they had a new Gacha Group gift out and was really excited. I always love the FREE spin on the group gacha… part of the fun is the surprise of what you will get. The group is FREE to join, so the pair of shoes won’t cost you a single Linden, and this set of Khyrah heels is just divine. You get one FREE spin per avatar, and that will get you a pair of heels that will fit Slink, Belleza, and Maitreya feet. If you want additional shoes, they are only 50L per spin on the non-gift gacha machine.

I landed a beautiful yellow pair and I really love the detailing on these heels by Pure Poison. I included the vendor advertisement at the end of my post so you could see the other colors available as well as get a close-up of the heels.

I wanted to pair my new heels with a pretty dress, and found just what I was looking for at the Cart Wash Sale. I picked up this pretty maxi dress by Lilbit Sass for only 10L. It is breezy and beautiful and the fit is perfect. It comes in all the standard sizes, as well as fitmesh sizes, and you also get Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza too.

Day Dreaming 2

If you haven’t stopped by Hairology yet, you still have time. It runs until June 30th. I highly recommend you pick up all the cakes there! There are so many pretty FREE gifts! [e] elikatira has out a cake and inside is two gift hairs in exclusive colors. I am showing you “Libby” in the pictures above. You don’t need a group… the hair is completely FREE. Just click the cake and it’s yours!

Loki showed you one of the 10L offerings from the Luminess Cart [here] earlier, but there are several pretty items for us ladies too. I found a pretty pastel pendant that looked lovely with my outfit and picked it up to finish off my soft summery look. It has a little cherub relaxing on the disk… looking like he is daydreaming… which is exactly the mood I was in this afternoon.:)

Bee Sweet

Bee Sweet Hello Fab Free! Thanks for stopping by! I have to tell you, I’m really enjoying this round of Kustom 9, so many cool things to be had at really affordable prices. Not to mention there are tons of FREE Second Life’s 13th Birthday gifts! I love slightly smaller events like Kustom 9 as well, they are easier to navigate and you can be certain you’re not missing anything.
Bee Sweet Close The moment I saw the ad for the Aquarium Heels gacha at the Kustom 9 Astralia booth, I had to have them. It was a true, “take my money now” moment! At just 69 lindens per play, I felt I could do no wrong. I love this style of shoe, and the Rare pair are more than worth the effort in my opinion. There’s something fun and whimsical about having a mini aquarium in your heels! The Rare pair includes a color/style change hud that allows you to pick between several colors, and change between the slip on style shown and a flipflop/thong style. These shoes fit Slink High feet.

Additionally, Astralia has a Second Life’s 13th Birthday gift out at their Kustom 9 booth. This FREE gift is an adorable bumble bee themed jewelry set that includes earrings and a necklace. Included with this gift is a color change hud to adjust the color of the metal between 4 options, and the gemstone in the necklace between 3 options. Each piece is also able to be re-sized by touch menu.

Another of the FREE SL13B gifts I picked up while at Kustom 9 is this cute hairstyle from Beusy. These double bun style up-do’s are so popular for the summer, and I can see why! With this FREE gift you’ll get the hairstyle and a color change hud that has 9 natural hair colors to choose from. Also, the hair is set up to be re-sized via touch menu for easy fitting.

Finally, I added this cute black and yellow striped nail polish to tie the whole look together. The polish is a dollarbie from TASHI that I found available on the Marketplace. This playful single color nail applier set includes appliers for Maitreya, Omega, TMP, and Belleza nails.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Day Eagle

Day Eagle

I love exploring new locations in Second Life… and coming across the Sim “Light Thoughts” was a lucky find. It’s a fantastic art installment with all sorts of dramatic color. It was also, I thought, the perfect back drop for the outfit I wanted to show off to you… since I also have a thing for latex😉

House of Ruby has out a new unisex outfit called Bijou. The regular price is 176L but right now you can pick up the Jet Nut color (I’m sporting it in the picture above) for only 75L at the creator’s in-world store or on the marketplace. You’ll get Slink and Omega appliers for mesh bodies. Note: there are NO system layers for this latex outfit.

I also wanted to show off another one of the Suicide Gurls group gifts, in case you haven’t yet dove in and decided to join up and grab the gifts. Remember, these tattoos are unisex. The tattoo in these pictures is the February group gift (yup its still out! Six months of gifts for your one time fee of 150L!) and is called Valborg. It comes in system layers as well as appliers for Omega, Maitreya, Belleza, and Slink. You also get the tattoo in fresh, faded and soft.

Day Eagle 2

I made one more stop before heading over to enjoy the sights at the art installment: the Cart Wash Sale. I couldn’t resist taking a peek at all the Carts this morning. I picked up this men’s Gold Eagle Necklace for just 10L at the Luminesse Cart. There are several other men’s offerings at the Cart as well as some lovely lady’s offerings as well. It’s a Cart chock full of beautiful jewelry and at only 10L each, not to be missed.

One Fish, Blue Fish

One Fish, Blue Fish

I’m having a blast at the Cart Wash Sale so far. There are so many amazing carts with wonderful deals to be had! If you haven’t stopped by yet, consider beginning with the Koala Cart! I picked up several things off the cart (and really I could have nabbed everything and been thrilled) and I think you’ll easily see why! My top is the Zip Up Bra (animals print) and is an applier top, though you will also get system layers in the box if you are not using a system body.

The box includes material huds as well as an Omega hud, and you get 7 animal prints for your tiny little sum of 10L! That’s 7 shirts for just 10L!

One Fish, Blue Fish 2

I paired the Koala top with two more items from the Cart, which were also only 10L each. First is the Monochrome symbols bracelets. Again, you’ll get a hud to change these into one of 12 possible monochrome prints. Each bracelet changes separately for added versatility.

My nails were also a 10L deal off the Koala Cart and included a hud for 11 different choices which matched many of the bracelet designs for a fashionable look. These nails are Omega applier nails and work for Maitreya hands.

My Ruby Slippers

My Ruby Slippers

I stopped for coffee and donuts this morning… as well as the newspaper. Do any of you all still read the paper? It gets that black ink all over your fingers, but its great for setting out on a counter to cool fresh baked goods. Of course this was long before folks used wire rack cooling methods I suppose? Either way, I have more than just baked  goodies for you today, because Glitterati has set out their June Group gift for you and it is cute as pie!

This little dress with its red and gold flowers comes in all the standard mesh sizes as well as fitmesh, Maitreya, Belleza, and Slink fits and is perfect for a casual morning coffee run. I love the embossed details on the sleeves as well. This dress is yours FREE with your group tag. Group membership is a one time fee of 100L, but remember, you will not only be getting this pretty dress… but you’ll also be getting access to many past group gifts (as well as future gifts) as well. The fee quickly pays for itself.

My Ruby Slippers 2

While scanning the marketplace, I happened upon this topaz jewelry set by Beloved Jewelry for only 1 little Linden. You’ll be getting the resizable necklace, a pair of earrings and a ring too (not shown). The set is well made and easily adjustable for a great fit. It matched the color of the flower petals on my dress (and the buckles on my shoes) so nicely that I just couldn’t pass it up!

My Ruby Slippers 3

You’ve already seen a few posts here on the Fab about the Cart Wash Sale. Love showed you a post [here] and I showed you a post [here] and [here]. And I’m sure you’ll be seeing lots more goodies from the Sale here on FabFree!

I stopped by the Cart Wash Sale again today, and this time I picked up a set of pretty red flats to compliment my new dress. These are called Fara by Lindy Modern & Retro shoes… but they certainly remind me of a pretty set of ruby slippers. And personally, I think every gal needs a pair of ruby slippers in her wardrobe! These pretty shoes are only 10L and will fit slink flat feet.

Blue Moon

Blue MoonHello Fab Free’rs and Happy Hump Day! We are half way through the week and I am very excited to share a few more gifts in honor of Second Life’s 13th birthday! This time the gifts can be found at the round of Kustom 9 that just started. Also, get excited, Lumae has a new group gift out and she’s super pretty!

I can’t believe SL has entered the teen years! Sometimes it seems like it was just yesterday we were all still figuring out this wacky wonderful world. To help celebrate this birthday, several designers have placed out birthday cakes (just like the ones at Hairology) with FREE gifts at Kustom 9. Simply click the cake, and get the gift! This gorgeous long hairstyle by Mithral is one of the many FREE gifts. This mesh style includes a regular version and a “busty” version, as well as an alpha layer.

Also at Kustom 9, in the FREE cake from Eclat is this adorably delicate little necklace. I love how dainty and feminine this simple yet elegant piece of jewelry looks. This lovely gift comes in a gold version (shown) and a silver version; both can be re-sized via touch menu.

How pretty is this FREE skin from Lumae?! The Lumae group is currently 1 linden to join. With that single linden you can get this lovely skin and every applier Lumae makes to match! Not to mention the gift has lots of options in appliers and system layers including cleavage, brow color, and freckles or no freckles. Also, you can still pick up a few of the past group gifts while wearing your Lumae tag! You wont want to miss this one!

Here are the details, Enjoy!
