Tis Kustom

Tis Kustom Hello Fab Free’rs, I hope you’ve all been having a wonderful week! I’m doing pretty well myself, especially after indulging in a little retail therapy at the current round of Kustom 9. This round of Kustom 9 is an anniversary round. Can you believe Kustom 9 has turned 3? In it’s relatively short time in Second Life, Kustom 9 has become one of the events I personally enjoy the most. I like the fact that it has remained a smaller event while still bringing in quality designers, at least in my opinion. In celebration of this anniversary, most if not all the participating vendors have put out a 9 linden gift. I picked up several, and the ones shown here are just a handful that I thought went well together.

This cute shoulder-length hairstyle is the K9 gift from MINA. I am always a sucker for heavy blunt bangs! I also like the swept back look of the style. I think it appears as though it could be tied back, but it floats over the shoulders and ends in a sort of feathery natural looking edge. The hair includes a color change hud of pretty “light brown” variations, and a version with and one without materials enabled.

Next, Essences also placed out a pretty variation on their Sophia skin as their K9 gift. This lovely face with the lilac lips is a Catwa head applier only. The gift applier is in the Essences medium01 tone with dark brows, and costs just 9 lindens like all the gifts at Kustom 9. I think the subtle makeup on this Catwa head applier by Essences is great for everyday wear. I also believe would look just as nice with casual clothing as it would with formal attire.

Fab Free’s own Kathryn commented on the photo for this post in Flickr that these eyes were “striking”. I completely agree with her, she always has such nice things to say! The eyes are part of the K9 gift from S0NG. S0NG’s 9 linden gift includes this hazy blue pair of eyes, and an equally strange and beautiful greenish pair. Named the “Bomi” eyes, each pair comes in a  mesh set, as well as a classic system layer.

Finally, this glittery iridescent choker with the little heart is from Pumpkin and I’m crushing on it big time! lol The mesh collar/choker has such a fun vibe, and it made me think of all the fun plastic jewelry I would have worn in my teens. Needless to say there was an instant feeling of slight nostalgia which is always a good thing in my book. The glittery heart choker has resize scripts built in for easy fitting, and is seriously cute on, especially for just 9 lindens.

Here are the details, I hope you like this small sample of the Anniversary gifts at Kustom 9.

Electric Love

Electric Love Hello again Fab Free’rs, I’m happy to be here, thanks for coming by and checking out the blog today! I’ve got some exciting things to share with you. As I’m sure you’ve noticed by now, we have started involving Second Life’s wonderful designers again and part of that involvement has meant some generous Fab Free exclusive group gifts. One such gift is this two piece skirt and sweater outfit from Pretty Kitty Design. Though the outfit is cute enough on its own, I added the most recent gift from Nar Mattaru. I’m a sucker for cute Halloween stuff, and this fun Halloween themed face tattoo was just too cute to resist.

Starting with the outfit from Pretty Kitty Design, there’s so much to tell you about I’m almost not sure where to begin! The top and skirt come in standard mesh sizes, as well as fitted sizes for specific mesh bodies. Each piece can be worn separately or together for the complete look. Now here’s where it gets even more interesting. The outfit includes a unique color change system called ARCTIC Tech that is exclusive to Pretty Kitty Design. What is ARCTIC you ask? It’s a hud driven color change system. This system has the ability to continually cycle through a spectrum of colors at random or allow you to choose a specific color that will not shift until you change it. If you’re having trouble visualizing what I’ve described, I understand! You can see a working demo at the Pretty Kitty Design main store. It really is cool to watch as the colors in the clothing shift. The ARCTIC Tech color change system changes the “colored” parts of the outfit only, the black materials will remain black. This FREE Fab Free group gift from Pretty Kitty Design is available to all Fab Free group members, just wear your tag. If you’re not a member yet, don’t worry the Fab Free group is always FREE to join.

Next up, as I mentioned above, I found the group gift from Nar Mattaru too cute to resist! This gift is an applier for Catwa heads only. In the applier you’ll find several small under-eye tattoo options that include images such as this cute little bat under Pru’s eye. There are 8 total goth/Halloween themed images in the applier. To change the color of your tattoo, which is white when applied, you’ll need to use the main hud included with your Catwa head. Within the Catwa hud, you have the option of manually adjusting the cheek makeup color, this will let you change the color of your tattoo to anything you choose. The Nar Mattaru group has a one time join fee of 149 lindens. You’ll find this cute Halloween themed gift available along with a previous gift behind the counter at the Nar Mattaru main store.

I hope you enjoy these fun gifts! Here are the details.

Sugar Doll

Sugar Doll Hello hello Fab Free’rs! I’m not sure if I am excited or a little disappointed that the month is already half over and Halloween is a mere 2 weeks away. I genuinely enjoy this time of year, and I hate to see it fly by so quickly. That said, all the more reason to enjoy every minute that remains! Little Bones, Letis Tattoo, and Petite Mort have all set out gorgeous FREE group gifts recently. Without a shadow of doubt these gifts are among my favorite of the October gifts I’ve come across thus far. I’m sure you’ll enjoy them as much as I do.
Sugar Doll 2 Starting from top to bottom, this pretty strait hairstyle is the most recent group gift at Little Bones. The Dion hair at Little Bones is a full fatpack of hair colors, and has some unique features. This simple yet elegant style also includes a hud that allows you to change the way the hair lays. You can set the style to be over both shoulders, over one shoulder on either side, or behind both shoulders. Additionally the hud is scripted with additional animations that make your avatar appear to be touching or playing with his or her hair. It really is well done and a fun playful addition. The Little Bones group carries a one time join fee of 100 lindens.

Next up, the whimsical sugar skull style face-paint is a recent group gift from Letis Tattoo. This FREE group gift includes a classic system layer, an Omega applier, and a Catwa applier for the sugar skull face with 3 color options. Aside from the obvious artistry and imagination of the sugar skull face, I love the culture and legend behind the imagery.  Not to mention this sort of face can be worn with any sort of outfit and not betray the spirit of Dia De Los Muertos. To get this FREE gift, head over to Letis and join the FREE-to-join in world group and pick up your FREE gift.

My personal favorite part of this look saved for last, this beautiful dress is the October group gift at Petite Mort. There isn’t anything about this dark elegant dress that I don’t like. The skirt has a look of stars peeking through clouds in the night, and even the bodice has a faint delicate pattern. Once again I find myself using the word whimsical to describe the gifts in this post. The gift is FREE to all Petite Mort group members. The group has a one time join fee of 75 lindens. This dress alone is well worth the join fee in my opinion. The gift comes in standard mesh sizes, as well as a fit for Slink Physique, Slink Hourglass, and Maitreya Lara.

I genuinely hope you like this Sugar Doll look as much as I do.

Some Mornings You Don’t Make it Out of Your PJs

Some Mornings You Don't Make it Out of Your PJs

Some mornings you just don’t make it out of your pajamas… but there is still work to be done. Good thing Luxe Paris has us gentleman covered. And it’s always nice to find a good set of quality sleepwear for men.

If you stop by Swank Events, Luxe Paris has out this mesh sleepwear set in blue set out as a FREE to all gift for gentlemen. It is one piece with an included alpha in all the standard sizes for easy fitting. It’s classic styling and isn’t cutesy. No footies or fantasy or fetish wear… just your standard run of the mill household pjs. Sometimes that’s nice for a change. Especially when you’re catching up with work in the early morning hours.

Speaking of which… I have a bit of catching up to do myself. In the meantime, enjoy the event. There’s currently a haunted house and a hunt going on that you won’t want to miss out on. Free gifts are to be had.

Afternoon at the Museum

Can you find the fabulously free outfit in this picture?

Coming soon to FabFree

Look down… lower… to the left… there it is!

If you haven’t had the chance to visit the Second Life Natural History Museum, it is totally worth a stop.  There is tons to explore, not to mention some pretty impressive dinosaur builds.   You might even learn something too!
Coming soon to FabFree

An afternoon at the museum calls for a great new outfit, luckily I happened to stop by one of my favorite stores as they were gearing up for an event.  Etchaflesh is hosting a Halloween hunt again this year, with a wall full of 12 gorgeous prizes.  Swing by, grab a hud, find all of the tombstones and you can take your pick!  You can play once each day, and get every item off the wall for your trick-or-treat basket before the hunt ends October 31st.

I snagged up this cute knotted tank and stripped capris over the course of two days.  The capris include a pretty sweet color change hud.

There is no group needed, and the hunt is completely free!

Coming soon to FabFree

I needed a little something to round out my outfit, so I hopped on over to Earthstones to take a look at their wall of group gifts.  I snapped up this great earrings and bracelet set, and a load of other jewelry.  The group is $250 to join, but there are over a dozen beautiful and classy items to snag, making this one totally worth the money.

Whispering Secrets

Sharing Secrets Hello Fab Free’rs, thanks for stopping by! Today’s post is something fun and playful, at least I think so. Sanarae is celebrating an anniversary, and the shoppers are benefiting. Almost every vendor has a FREE gift to all Sanarae group members. While there are a ton of lovely gifts, the gift from Pixicat happens to be my personal favorite. Additionally I came across the cutest gacha by Katatonik. This adorably creepy pet makes for the perfect little friend to whisper all your secrets to.
A New Friend It’s no secret I’m excited about the month of October being so near. There’s a meme floating around the Internet that says something about it being Halloween Season rather than Football Season. I definitely agree with that sentiment. The Sanarae gift from Pixicat is this cute little short sleeved bat print top with the orange leather skirt. The top and skirt can be worn separately as well as together. This FREE gift comes in standard mesh sizes, as well as a few body specific sizes. There isn’t anything I don’t love about this cute outfit. It’s perfect for Halloween Season! All you need to do to get this amazing gift is join the Sanarae group. The group is FREE to join.

Now let’s talk about the octopus kitty floating over Pru’s shoulder. This half octopus half kitty follower pet is just the right mix of cute and creepy. This gacha creature by Katatonik is equipped with resize scripts so you can make her just about whatever size you like. Once you’re  happy with her, the touch menu will also allow you to remove the scripts. There are several versions of the Tendril Kitty from Katatonik at Sanarae, and at 50 lindens per play, it was a gacha I just couldn’t pass up. I may even need to go back to Sanarae and collect a few of the others, they are just that cute! lol
