Roar

Greetings FabFree Readers,

Roar

I am indulging in a bit of fantasy Medieval role play today for this missive. I saw this dashing set from C&N Gorian Designs and knew it was time for some ‘days of yor’.  This is the ‘Lion’ set from C&N Gorian Designs and it’s the current free Group Gift. However, with this being so close to the end of the month it may be changed out very soon. This set comes with the tunic the leggings, the boots and the separate hood, plus the belt and sword. The boots, belt and hood are all modifiable with a built in script to get a prefect fit. The mesh tunic and leggings come in the standard mesh sizes from XS to XL. As with every item from C&N, I have found this outfit to be superbly details and extremely well built.

The C&N Gorian Designs group is a small 25L to join and is well worth the lindens for all of the gifts and lucky boards. The group Gift board requires a 1L payment which is immediately refunded.

I Remain Most Sincerely Yours,

Gabe's Signiture

Hello FabFree Folks!

Hope

I’ve got a lovely new-to-me designer to share with y’all today. This is the latest Group Gift from Rebel Hope Designs. I just love finding new designers, especially when their work is so well done. Like this cute dress: Amy.  Amy comes in the standard Mesh sizes XXS-L and a whole plethora of appliers -> Maitreya, and the SLink Physique + Hourglass, as well as Belleza’s Isis, Freya and Venus.  The HUD allows for ten color changes and four metals. I could go on and on about the great details all over this dress.. even on the back. But I’ll show it off instead.

I can see this becoming a staple in my closet!  The best news… Rebel Hope Designs group is free to join!

Seas the day

Hello FabFree-ers!

Seas the day

I’ve resisted disappearing to the beach for weeks now… but I can’t hold out any longer! Especially not when the Surf into Summer Hunt has such great items tempting me.  Precast Inc has supplied my stripy towel for the Hunt and it comes loaded with four animated poses. The details on the fabric are really well done and the poses are sexy without being overdone, if you know what I mean.   I’m leaving the smexy to this cute bikini from Perfect Seduction. The Sis Bikini comes in the standard mesh sizes from S-XL and has a good alpha layer. I just love the sassy fringe on the bandeau top!

The 1L Surf into Summer Hunt runs until June 21 so you’ve got plenty of time to lounge around in the sand!

An Enchanting Blue Fairy

The Blue Fairy

Hello There Fab Free’rs! I hope all is well in your world. Right now my world is made up of fantastic fairy fabulousness thanks to the Enchantment Hunt. The May round of Enchantment is Thumbelina themed, and the shops participating in the Hunt part of the event are making all my fairy dreams come true! Even better, the Hunt gifts are all absolutely FREE. Additionally, Plastik recently sent out this gorgeous fantasy skin with male and female options and all the appliers for all the meshy things you could possibly imagine (okay most of them) as a FREE gift to their VIP group. You’re gonna want this one! Also, at the very end of the post I have a little something from Catwa that I want to tell you about. I bet you can guess what it is!

First, if you’ve never done an Enchantment Hunt before, this is a hud hunt. You can pick up a FREE hud at the Enchantment Event or at any of the participating shops. Once you attach the hud you’ll be asked to give it permission to teleport your avatar. Say yes! Then click on a shop logo to be instantly teleported to that location. You’ll also get a hunt hint in your local chat. You must be wearing the hud when you find the hunt object (an open book) and click it. The Enchantment Hunt object will not send you the gift without the Enchantment Hunt hud attached.Blue Fairy Close Since there are so many lovely Enchantment Hunt Freebies, I’ll start from the top. This crown of dainty, highly detailed hair flowers from NSP Florals is simply beautiful. This FREE hunt gift is sizable and can be easily positioned. Not to mention that hair flowers are an essential part of a fairy’s wardrobe, so you won’t want to miss these!

No fairy would be complete without a set of pretty gossamer wings! These delicate wings are the FREE Enchantment Hunt prize at Le Poppycock. The wings are static, and include several color versions, each in an open or closed position.

Next, this lace one-piece lingerie is the FREE Enchantment Hunt Prize at Blacklace. Blacklace is known for their beautiful lingerie, and this gift is no exception. Not only is this gift beautiful, it generously includes appliers for omega compatible bodies as well as classic system layers in several equally pretty colors.

The next to last stop on the Enchantment Hunt for this post is Essenz. These mint colored strappy flats are just too cute! These are easily the perfect fair footwear. This FREE hunt prize includes a Maitreya fit, and a Slink Flat fit. All fairy-ness aside, these sandals are a great addition to any summer wardrobe.

Finally, how cute is the pose used in the top photo? I love the whimsical look of the stance. This is one of 3 poses that are the Enchantment Hunt prize at Elephante Poses. Each of the 3 static poses have the same whimsical fairy quality to them. You’ll definitely want to add these FREE poses to your collection!

Now that I have shared a small sample of the Enchantment Hunt gifts to be had (I’ll show more in my next post), I want to talk about this incredible skin. Just recently Plastik gained 1000 Facebook likes/followers and to show her appreciation, the designer sent out this skin to her VIP group. This FREE gift comes in a male and female version and includes classic system layers along with appliers for every mesh body part you might imagine. I love the added detail of the almost iridescent looking stripes. They really give this skin an otherworldly look. In addition to the applier options, you also have the choice of freckles or no freckles.  At this time The Plastik group is FREE to join, and you’ll find this awesomely generous gift in the past group notices.

Lastly, I know this has been an unusually long post for me, but I have one more thing I want to share with you. Catwa has just released a static mesh head called Nicki, and it is for sale now for just 100 lindens. Yes, this is above and beyond the 75 lindens we usually stick to, however if you’re a Catwa group member you will get 30 lindens in store credit for purchasing the head. This brings that 100 linden cost to just 70 lindens in a round about way. Aside from being static (no blinking, no facial expressions) this pretty face has all the same functions as any other Catwa mesh head. Currently the Catwa group is FREE to join, so don’t forget to join the group and wear your group tag to get the store credit when purchasing the Nicki head.

Here are the Details, Enjoy!

No Harm Done

No Harm Done

I decided to go shirtless for a cause today… to show off some excellent group gifts. If you’re a fan of high quality tattoos in Second Life, you know that finding good ink with all the proper layers at a reasonable cost can sometimes be a challenge. I ran into a new-to-me store that is offering group gifts that you won’t want to miss out on.

If you stop by Suicide Gurls main-store, you can join the group for 150L. This will give you access to a total of five group gifts, as the monthly group gifts for January through May are all set out for customers to enjoy. Each of these tattoos are unisex and come in a full range of appliers, including Omega, Slink, TMP, Maitreya, and Belleza, as well as a system layer for system avatars. So your one time fee for the group join pays for itself easily right away. I’m showing you the April gift called “Dagni” in the photo above. The gifts vary widely each month in style… but one thing doesn’t vary… quality. They are all top quality tattoos.

To add to my rugged look, I picked up the FREE L’Homme Magazine Group Gift being offered by No.Match at their mainstore. This group is FREE to join and means you’ll have access to numerous FREE gifts for men at a variety of stores all over the grid. No.Match is generously offering this chin goatie called “No Harm”. I thought it fit the feel of today’s look.

Sweet May

Sweet May

I hope the month of May has been sweet to you. We’ve passed the half-way mark now! It’s hard to believe we’ll be moving into the hotter summer months soon. But I think I’m ready with this pretty sun dress from that is the May group gift from Glitterati.

I love the classic waist styling and floral hem of this dress, as well as the scalloped neckline which are perfect for spring’s last fling and even for moving into hotter summer months. It comes in all the standard mesh sizes.

I was delighted to discover that NSP Florals has out a May gift that seemed to perfectly match my new dress. This little rose hair piece I picked up is beautifully detailed, and while I paired it with a sundress, I can see it working perfectly with a wedding dress in June. If you’re good at editing, you could attach this to the chest or spine and make it into a corsage instead. I can just imagine so many possibilities for this lovely rose beauty! Best yet, it comes with a color change hud that allow you to change the color of the roses to a variety of sumptuous colors! As of the time of this posting the NSP Floral Group is FREE to join, making this group gift FREE. However, group membership is usually 75L. I’m not sure how much longer the group fee will be set at 0L, so you should hurry if you want to get this lovely item as a FREE gift.

Sweet May 2
