Goodbye to Sandra D.

Sandra

Hello Fab Free! For those celebrating Memorial Day this weekend, I hope you have some lovely weather. One of the great things about Second Life is the rain can’t ruin the party.  Speaking of parties, I feel ready for a retro sock-hop in this fantastically adorable group group gift at Knockers.

The Knockers group is 150 lindens to join, and this fully mesh group gift dress and matching jacket are well worth the effort. This mesh dress can be worn with or without the matching mesh jacket. I think the jacket would be equally cute with jeans, and y0u’ve gotta love the iconic poodle decal on the skirt as well as the back of the jacket. Both items come in standard mesh sizes with matching alpha layers. The dress has appliers for Lolas Tango and Mirage.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Saturday in the park

Good Friday evening to you, Fab Folks. The weekend approaches and isn’t it good to see it looming on our horizon! I’d be willing to bet that more than a few of us have some time in the park planed this weekend… maybe with a picnic? If so, the Picnic in the Park Hunt is just the thing for you!

picnic_001

No picnic is complete without some juicy watermelon and this cute frock from Odd Clothing Etc. is a little slice of yummy. Short and flirty, it’s perfect for a summer date.

If you’re more a shorts and tank sort, then Siren’s Moon’s gift is going to be a comfy favorite. I really love the bright retro print and the halter is held by a cute little red heart in back.

picnic_002

The Picnic in the Park Hunt is only a tiny little 1L per gift and has 14 stops. The Hunt runs until June 15th so you’ve got plenty of time to play this fun little Hunt.

Sith Happens

Sith Happens

There comes a time in everyone’s Second Life when you have to sit down, enjoy some popcorn, and watch the drama unfold, because Sith happens! Seriously, we have all had one of those moments. In light of the drama that happens in SL, Roawenwood put out this fun popcorn bag as their current FREE group gift. This popcorn has a male and female sitting pose, along with a popcorn-munching animation. To get this fun gift, join the FREE Roawenwood in-world group and check past notices.

While sitting back and enjoying your popcorn, you might want a few pillows to prop yourself up. Get comfy and enjoy these “Priestess” pillows by BYRNE. They are a FREE gift at the May round of Create Your Own Tarot. There’s no need to join a group, just stop by the BYRNE booth at CYOT and pick them up. You’ll also find a mesh t-shirt gift for the guys!

So I’m sure you caught me being “punny” earlier with my Sith happens joke. The Star Wars nerd in me couldn’t help herself. Apparently there is an equally punny side to the Que Bella designer as well, considering this “Sith Happens” mini tee is the Que Bella contribution to the Light Side vs. Dark Side Hunt.  This cute top comes in standard system layers and includes several appliers for meshy parts. The hunt is FREE, and you’re searching for a cookie, ’cause everyone knows the Dark Side has cookies. :P

Sith Happens 2

Also part of the Light Side vs. Dark Side hunt are these great wedge heels from Babygirls. I like how at first the pattern looks like an obscure argyle, then when you look closer, tie fighters! Like the top, these shoes are FREE and, again you’re looking for a cookie! The hunt ends June 4th, so you have a little time to score these great shoes. They are meant to be worn with Slink Mid feet.

Here are the details, Enjoy and Happy Hunting!

What Goes Around, Comes Around!

whc lyrcoldash pic

I never intended it to happen, but do you have an article of clothing that you rely on as a “go to” item, one that absolutely refuses to age? I do! And, later in this post, we are going to celebrate its one-year anniversary in my wardrobe. First though, check out what I found last night! I went by a store named Cold Ash, which specializes in fantastically detailed, rugged-looking men’s clothing. I found this vintage style T-shirt as their FREE Group Gift! The Mesh Austin Tee in STEEL BLUE is a fine representation of the quality that goes into the clothing that Cold Ash makes. Anyone who knows me knows I am a sucker for T-Shirts that look soft and well-worn, and this ribbed cotton T-shirt hangs beautifully with soft, realistic folds. It’s like it was never meant to be taken off. In the FREE Group Gift, you get 3 sizes and an additional 2 sizes in fitmesh, so getting a good fit won’t be any problem. Stop by Cold Ash, this is a must pick up! The pants I chose to wear with it are the current FREE Group Gift from Lavarock, likely my favorite male clothing store on Second Life. They are the Destroy Male Jeans and are probably one of the grungiest items in my wardrobe. I love the texture on them. Honestly, if I ever move to Seattle to pursue my dreams of alt-rock super stardom, these are the jeans I am going to wear! They come in 2 styles, with five sizes of each included in the gift. The only problem is they have been out for quite a while, and at the moment I am unable to say how much longer they will remain available. If you like them in the picture, go get them immediately. I suspect they may not be available much longer. The last item in the Cold Ash inspired outfit is the cap, which was just one of those lucky finds you sometimes run across accidentally. It is a 1L hunt prize from a hunt which is sadly already over. Luckily, the owner of Ashmoot forgot to pick up the hunt prize! It’s only 1L and the cap matches the T-shirt wonderfully. Sadly I can’t recall the name of the hunt, but you are looking for a hunt object shaped like a mask called “P-H Hunt # 8″. Look for it where you find the daily prize boards. Kristabel Ashmoot promises me she will leave it out until the end of the month so we all have a chance to grab it (a VERY sweet thing to do for us). Be sure to pick it up before it’s too late!

I teased you that as I write this I am celebrating an anniversary of sorts, and I have Lyrieal’s Boutique to thank for it. I recently attended “Just For Him”, a cart sale like event with a 1L mini-hunt where I found this great leather jacket! It comes from Lyrieal’s Boutique and is their Just For Him Hunt Prize. It has a hud that allows you to choose 5 different colors in both the leather and the lining. For a single linden, that’s great value. The event is not a large one, but I should have known Lyrieal’s Boutique would have something special out. This brings me to the anniversary: I was dying to show you this jacket and was having trouble finding just the right pants to present it with, so I decided to go with my “go to” grey system jeans and Mesh boots, tinting the jeans a bit darker to match. After doing the picture, I began putting together this post, and found I had reason to smile. Those beloved jeans and boots of mine are from a hunt one year ago today…and were previously blogged here by a young guest blogger. Coincidentally, they also came from Lyrieal’s Boutique! So, to celebrate the one-year anniversary of their posting in Fab Free, the In The Pink outfit has been added to the 1L hunt prize, making it even better. It is a great looking outfit and the jeans are tintable to match a wide range of grays, so they are super handy to have around. Even the boots are nice, you can’t beat this value. I had originally planned to end my post here, and call it a night, but once I get going I am hard to stop. So in the spirit of “You really should check out the Just For Him sales event”, here is a final addition to my post below!

whc cold ash beach 1_001

While I was at the sale, I noticed a pair of shorts on the back wall of the booth belonging to the store Trashed. Just like the other coincidences this week (the hat which looked great with the T-shirt that was accidentally left out, and the nice jeans I decided to wear being posted to fab free exactly one year ago today) these denim shorts look like they were made to go with the Cold Ash T-Shirt I picked up this week. The Trashed Men’s denim shorts in plaid are not free, but this is a sale event as well as a hunt and these shorts look really great. If you love that T-shirt as much as I do, that is reason enough to pony up the extra 85L for these shorts to go with them. They make a fantastic pair together. Once again, I have worked late into the evening and I must go, but this has been a post full of pleasant surprises. Until next time my friends, see you on the grid. —–WHC Riler

She’s Gone Batty

Batty1

Hello Fab Free’rs! Hopefully everyone had a good weekend and is now fully recovered from Monday! lol
I’m super excited about this little hunt I stumbled across the other day, it’s the Gone Batty Hunt. The fact that I’m fairly certain I went “batty” a long time ago aside, I also happen to adore bats! I have no idea why, I don’t have a cute story to explain it, or any other reason that I am aware of. I just love them! So if you’re like me and either really like bats, or have an affinity for the kawaii and creepy, this dollarbie hunt is just the thing for you. Also, I got in on the tail end of this hunt, it ends May 22, so don’t wait!

The Gone Batty Hunt is a sim-based hunt taking place at the “Spooky Cute” event location. The stores participating in the hunt will have a sign about the hunt either right outside their store, or visible just inside. Not all the stores are participating. Each hunt prize is 1 linden. You’ll be looking for a glowing purple disc with a black bat in the center. Happy Hunting!!

So first, I think this kinda retro looking dress with the cute tie at the neck is so adorable! It is the GBH prize by KRAVE. The dress is fully mesh and comes in standard mesh sizing. The adorable mouth-chain Pru is wearing is also a dollarbie GBH prize, this one by ClarityMoon. I love the cute little bat paired with a dark moon and stars. Next, is this fun mani/pedi from Tori-tastic. I really like this color combo with a bat motif, it’s hard to do bats and not look like Halloween. This “bat-tastic” polish is meant for Slink nails.

Batty 2

There is another super cute dress to be had on the GBH, this one is by Black Moon. I really like the style of this dress with the suspender style straps over a t-shirt-like top. I especially like the classic  bats flying across the moon imagery. This dress is also just 1 linden and comes in standard mesh sizes. I think these bat friends might be the very definition of “creepy cute”! They are the GBH prize by Mumuhime Clothing. These cute bats are attachments, and some have a hold pose. They are also pretty cute just kinda standing around.

Batty 3

So I’m considering making this cute over-sized sweatshirt my go-to shirt for those jeans and sneakers kind of days! This cute shirt is the GBH prize by Facepalm. It also comes in standard mesh sizes, though it’s mean to look big, and it has a matching alpha layer. The super fun hat Pru has on is yet another GBH prize, and it too is just 1 linden. This hat by Gachapon! has re-size scripts, and includes a color-change hud. Now hurry on over to the Spooky Cute location and Happy Hunting!

Here are the details, Enjoy!!
