Hunting at Ostara


Ostara 2

Hello Fabulous Fab Free’rs! Thank you as always for being here. The Ostara’s Altar event just recently started, and part of the event includes a 5 linden hunt. Each of the shops has an Ostara Hunt egg hidden somewhere on the event grounds. The term hidden should be used loosely though, considering many of the shops have placed their egg within plain sight. A few shops also have multiple hunt prizes. Each of these hunt gifts will cost you a mere 5 linden. For this post I picked out three of the many prizes to share with you. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

Floral Headband – There’s something inherently springtime about flowers in your hair. Since Ostara is in spring, this floral headband by Oubliette makes the perfect accessory. It’s their 5L hunt item at the Ostara’s Altar event. There are no scripts, so it’s also low-lag, and it’s mod so it can be manually sized.

Nose Stud – The little spiked nose-stud Pru is wearing is another 5L Ostara’s Altar hunt prize. This one is by Neverwish, and it comes with a silver version, and the “galaxy” version that is shown. This piercing also appears to be free of scripts and can be manually sized.

Earrings – I love the delicate look of these gold earrings by PKC which stands for Purrrrfect Kitties Creations. They too are another of the many 5 linden Ostara’s Altar hunt prizes. These earrings do have resize scripts that allow you to custom fit them. The script even includes a poser to help your avatar stand still without the need of a pose stand.

Here are the details:

Headband – Oubliette– Flora Headband – 5L Hunt Prize @Ostara’s Altar
Hair – TRUTH VIP Joy – Past VIP Group Gift *Originally Blogged Here 
Head – CATWA HEAD Koura Bento
Skin – Essences – Vanya
Earrings – Purrrrfect Kitties Creations – Jojo Earrings – 5L Hunt Prize @Ostara’s Altar
Nose Stud – Neverwish – *NW* Nose Spike – Galaxy and Silver – 5L Hunt Prize @Ostara’s Altar

Hello Fab Free. Today’s post is a little melancholy, though appropriately so. If you are, or ever were into EDM (Electronic Dance Music) you know who the man on Pru’s shirt. Keith Flint, probably best known for his work with the band Prodigy, took his own life early this week. Despite his often menacing appearance on stage, he has been described by those who knew him as a kindhearted soft-spoken gentile soul. Music will never be quite the same without his creative spark.

The designer behind the brand Beautiful Hustler has put out this top as a free group gift in tribute to the beloved singer, dancer, and front-man. The top comes in a single mesh size (not sure if it is fitted or standard), as well as mesh sizes for Maitreya Lara, Belleza (all), Tonic (all), and Slink (all) mesh bodies. The Beautiful Hustler group is free to join.

Also, Pru is wearing a recent limited time free group gift nose ring by PUNCH. This crescent-moon shaped piercing is technically rigged to fit the Catwa Catya head, however it fit Pru’s Genus Project Classic head without any issues. The piercing is free to all PUNCH group members, and the group is free to join.

Lastly I just wanted to put this out there, if you are feeling low, low enough that suicide sounds like a plausible option, please please please talk to someone. Anyone. Here is a link to the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. https://suicidepreventionlifeline.org/ .

No Luck

No Luck

Hello Hello Fab Free’rs! I missed you!! So I had a little hiccup after the holidays, my laptop decided it no longer wanted to work, so I had to order a new one and wait for the new one to come in. Needless to say the wait is over, and it feels so good to be back. So for my first post of 2019 I have this uber cool face tattoo by Speakeasy and these beautiful snowflake adorned ears by PumeC. So let’s get to it!

The Tattoo – This unisex tattoo is a recent find at Speakeasy. It’s just 10 linden in the store, and is an Omega applier with 3 tones. It covers parts of the face, head and neck. I think it’s a really cool find for all the ladies and gents with shaved or partially shaved heads.

The Ears – In a previous post I mentioned that PumeC would have 3 December group gifts. Two of those gifts are pretty skins. The 3rd December group gift at PumeC is this pair of pierced and stretched ears. I think they might become a new favorite of mine. I love snowflakes and quite a few colder months still ahead. The ears are sizeable, and come with a color/texture change hud for skin, tattoo, and all the little metal bits. The ears are free to all PumeC group members, and the group join fee is 399 linden.

Here are the details, enjoy!

As Jolly As I Get

Jolly As I Get
Hello Again Fab Free’rs! I’m always glad you’re here. So I kind of don’t want to admit it, but this sweater by Oubliette suits me so well. *laughs* Not that I don’t get excited, but I’m rarely one to get super outwardly excited. So I could be totally thrilled about something and not express it the way most would expect. This sweater is one of 2 group gifts I picked up today, the second being a 300 linden gift card at Go&See which I used to get this skin for free. In addition I also picked up these earrings by SynCo for free at Winter’s Hollow. Keep reading and I’ll let you know all the info you need about each of these fabulous finds!

The Sweater – Sometimes you just need a little cheekiness in your wardrobe, or at least I do. This sweater is a current group gift at Oubliette. The Petite Mort/Oubliette group is currently free to join, so don’t miss out! Also, there’s an equally fun, if slightly more sinister Krampus sweater waiting over at Petite Mort that you can pick up for free with the same group tag. These novelty sweaters come in several mesh sizes. In addition I want to mention that gift cards are 50% off for a limited time!

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

The Skin/Gift Card – Right now the Go&See group is just 50 linden to join, and there is a limited time group gift 300 Linden gift card available until December 25th. The group gift card vendor is at the Go&See main store, right next to the redelivery terminal. That said, you could either wear your gift card and add the balance to your store credit then save it for later, or do like I did and pick up 3 of the group only 99 linden promo skins for free. There is a row of group promo 99 linden skins at Go&See. The one Pru is wearing is December’s promo named Eva. Next to the vendor for Eva there are specific instructions posted on how to get the skin for 99 linden, and how to purchase using your store credit. Follow the instructions carefully. You will need to be wearing the Go&See group tag! Eva comes in a Genus Project head applier, with Maitreya and Omega body appliers. Other promo skins come in Catwa appliers, and or Omega appliers. Please be sure to try the free demos before you purchase! Additionally, there are male skins at Go&See.

The Earrings – These tapered studs are a free gift by SynCo at Winter’s Hollow. There is no group needed, just pay the gift box under the Christmas tree 1 linden and be instantly refunded 1 linden. This gift includes a color/texture change hud that will let you choose from preset metallic color choices for 3 parts of the earrings. Also, the same hud will allow you to resize them. I would definitely consider these claw-like studs to be unisex. Winter’s Hollow is open until December 31st.

Here are the details, enjoy!

Just a Delicate Snowflake

Delicate Snowflake

Hello dear Fab Free’rs! It’s been a minute since I said thank you for being here, so thank you so much! Really, there’d be no point to the Fab Free blog without you. That said, I’m happy I get to be here too! I still cannot get over how much there is going on this Holiday Season. I don’t know why, it is probably like this every year, but each year it always seems pleasantly overwhelming. So many gifts and inexpensive finds, so little time! haha Yep, it’s a good problem to have. For today’s post I picked up a few gifts at Redeux and I couldn’t resist another stop at The Cart Sale. As always, I’ll have all the information below.

P.S. Redeux ends on the 21rst so don’t wait! 

The Romper – This little black romper with ruffled shorts is the free Redeux group gift by The Forge. Simply wear your Redeux group tag and click the gift waiting at The Forge’s event booth. The Redeux group is free to join if you’re not a member. This cute little number comes in a single unlabeled mesh size. It fit Pru’s Maitreya Lara body almost perfectly, so that would be my “size” guess.

The Facial Piercings – Axix also has a gift at this round of Redeux. Their free gift is this set of unique triangle shaped facial piercings positioned below the eyes and under the lower lip. They come in the gold color shown, and can be resized and positioned. I would definitely consider them to be a unisex accessory. Again you will need the Redeux group tag to get this gift.

The Snowflake Tattoos – These pretty snowflake upper body tattoos are one of 10 linden items available at The Cart Sale by InnerJoy Love Tattoos. The tattoo comes in an Omega applier, a Maitreya applier, and a classic system tattoo layer. I love when designers continue to include classic layers with their applier products!

Here are the details, enjoy!

Hair – TRUTH Farryn – Selection
Head –  CATWA HEAD Koura Bento
Skin –  Essences – Vanya
Eyes –  [Buzzeri] Celestial Eyes – Wolf

The Pumpkins Stay

The Pumpkins Stay
Hey There Fab Free’rs! So I’ve decided I can let go of Halloween, but the pumpkins gotta stay. At least until the end of November! Especially this barbed wire pumpkin candle holder by Reka. It’s a free group gift for members of the Reka group. The Reka group is also free to join. I sometimes have a soft spot for things like barbed wire re-purposed into art and the shabby-chic aesthetic.

Speaking of shabby-chic, I think these cute potted succulents fit the description as well. I picked them up for free at the Gacha Garden event. I actually picked up quite a few fantastic free gifts at the current Gacha Garden round. There are tons! The gifts at Gacha Garden require you to wear the Gimme Gacha event group tag. This group is free to join. The succulent gift is by Your Dreams. It comes with a single plant that you can copy and modify.

Next up on my little gift grabbing adventure through the Gacha Garden, this hair. I know Juli already showed you this cute free hairstyle by Fabia in her post “Fab Mad“, but who can resist that hat?! It’s another of the free gifts and it comes in a set of red hair color choices.

Pru’s other-worldly olive colored eyes are the free Gacha Garden gift from Lotus. These eyes come in Lelutka Appliers, Catwa Appliers, and a set of mesh eyes. There are 5 beautiful pupil-less color choices.

It has been a while since Pru had multiple piercings. This piercing set by Supernatural made me wonder why it’s been so long. The set is quite pretty, and is yet another free gift at Gacha Garden. The set includes 4 piercings that can be worn separately or together. There is a full set in gold, and one in silver. A color change hud for the gemstone part of the piercings is also included.

Lastly, I know you can’t see much of it, my apologies, however the wooden coffee table everything is sitting on is also a free gift at Gacha Garden. Its by a shop called Rassuel. The table is short and rectangular, with a single shelf and square legs. It’s a great basic modern looking furniture piece.

Here are the details, enjoy!

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!

Sashay Away

Sashay Away

Well hello there!  RL has been keeping me on my toes the past few days, so I’ve sadly had to be a bit quiet on the bloggage front!  Well, I’ll try to make it up to you with this gorgeous outfit I put together completely for free!  I’m liking the dark sultry nature of it all, but let’s get to the details without further delay!

Dress Me Up

While I was at Sn@tch the other day doing some fishing, I took a gander around the store and noted that the Twisted Hunt is currently going down!  Sn@tch is always super generous with their gifts and prizes, and the Twisted Hunt is no exception.  There is not just one free prize, but a whole bunch all peppered around the place hidden inside the symbol of a flame.  I came across the Bernadette gown, which is lovely, deep cut, laced up and very red.  Isn’t it sexy?  I love it!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • XS – XL with an Alpha Layer

Give Me Some Lip

Sintiklia have a lovely new free gift out for all, no group join required.  It’s this really beautiful and shiny lipstick applier for Lelutka heads.  It comes in six amazing different colours that I’m sure you’ll be as obsessed with as I am. You’ll find your copy in the makeup area of the store near the counter.  Simply stunning!

Branching Out

My really striking ear cuffs are courtesy of Since 1975 who sent out a new subscriber gift.  If you aren’t subscribed, head on over to the store and hit the subscriber unit.  Check in the history section to pick up your free gift (same goes if you haven’t received yours automatically!) How cool are these!  I may just wear them forever.  Maybe.  You can’t tell me what to do! Hehe.

I’m going to sashay away now…

Queen Bee

Queen Bee
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! Happy Sunday! Pru is serving some serious face on this Sunday-funday, and with good reason. I have two group gifts from Swallow to tell you about, and the August group gift from e.marie. I hope you love them.

Swallow – It had been a little bit since I’d stopped in Swallow to check out all their cool jewelry and such. So I did, and I’m always impressed with their group gift section. During a recent shopping excursion at Swallow I picked up this beautiful bee septum piercing. It comes with a hud that lets you pick from several metallic tones, and switch the full bright on or off. Also it has resize scripts for easy fitting.

The second gift I picked up at Swallow (out of the many available) is a pretty lip applier set. There are 2 applier sets, with 3 lipstick shades (a red, a purple, and a pink) each. I will say that the colors are very similar in the two sets, one set seems just a bit more matte than the other maybe. That said, they are all very pretty on. The appliers work with Catwa heads only. The Swallow group does have a one time join fee of just 40 linden.

E.Marie – The super cute manicure Pru has is the August group gift at e.marie. The set is a fun mix of black, white, gold, and what I would call a rose-gold color with cool graphic images and patterns. I’ll include the vendor photo below so you can get a better look. This manicure set from e.marie comes in several fits/sizes. Also, there’s a regular version, and a “shine” version. These are mesh nails, not appliers! The e.marie group has a one time join fee of just 50 linden.
Hand Sizes Included: Slink Dynamic, Vista Prohand, Maitreya Lara

Practical Magic

Practical Magic

Hey all!  My vacation is quickly coming to a close, so I thought I might try conjuring up some magic forces to see if I can extend it a bit.  I mean, I’m not being greedy or anything, but you can hardly blame me for wanting to stay away from reality for just a little bit longer…

Eschewing Reality

It’s time for another round of Syndicate Sunday!  If you’re not familiar with it, then the concept is simple:  a bunch of your favourite stores have put discounted items out – in fact, every store involved has an item out for only 69 Lindens!  Today, I’m showing off the Modern Witch dress from Witchcraft (it’s got loads of different texture options), as well as a cute septum piercing from Astara – that comes with a bindi and nose stud as well that have an HUD to change the colours of the stones.  All this fun for just 69 Lindens!  Hurry up though, it all disappears on Tuesday, so you’d better rush to get the deals!  Make sure you check out the Syndicate Sunday Website to see what else is on offer!

Dress Sizes

  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Isis
  • Freya

Now, where’s that time travel spell gone?
