Sweet Sue

Hey FabFree!

Sweet Sue

I found a nifty “New To Me” design for us today: The Beautiful Ones. I stumbled across them and was delighted to see this super cute short dress was the free group gift for August. This is ‘Sue’ and it comes in the standard sizes S-L as well as appliers for Belleza Venus, Maitreya, and SLink Hourglas and Physique.  This dress is also available in several other colors for regular price but the stunning turquois is a group member exclusive color. The Beautiful Ones group is a tiny little 25L to join but there are a ton of past gifts available. The past gift machine will ask you for 1L but will pay you back immediately.  No room for more groups? You can still pick up past gifts for just 10L each.

August is drawing to a close so don’t delay if you want to pick up this great dress!

Aloha!

Heyya Fabfree-ers!

Aloha

I hope your weekend is going fantastic and fabulous! If you have time between the beach and the backyard BBQs you should check out the Aloha Fair. You’ll find some beautiful exclusive items from the designers and a ton of cheapies and even a few freebies! I’m lounging around today in Sevyn East’s 1L aloha gift: the Tina Bikini in Blue. I say in blue because that 1L will get you this cute suit in blue, pink and black!  Tina comes in the standard Mesh sizes XXS-L for both the top and bottom which can be worn separately.

I love flip flops in RL and SL and Mutiny in Heaven has these extra thick “Blam” flip flops out as their free fair gift. Blam comes in versions for SLink and Belleza flat feet as well as a version for system feet. Perfect for wandering the beach!

Aloha 2

The Aloha fair runs until Auguat 10 so be sure to check it out! And here’s your taxi now!

Nerdy Girl in-world Closing Sale

Super Heroes

It’s hard to see much beloved stores close their doors in Second Life… and Nerdy Girl has announced that she will be moving the in-world store to the Marketplace to pursue new adventures after July 12th. In the meantime, as a bit of a farewell gift to all the loyal customers who love nerdology, the in-world store is having a last hoorah and closing sale before it moves to the marketplace… a bonus for all of us loyal shoppers🙂

Nerdy Girl has put out all the old gifts for one thing, so if you are a group member, stop by and pick up any you missed (the join fee is only 25L if you are not already a member, and with all the goodies, it’s worth joining).

In addition, all store merchandise is priced at 25L or lower, excluding gachas. In salute to the Nerdy ways, Loki and I decided to go as Nerd Heroes. I am not convinced that he got it quite right, but then he thinks I didn’t do it right either… we agreed to disagree, since Rainbow Brite is my favorite, and he said Superman was super.

My rainbow bright costume includes the mesh skirt, applier top and leggings, and the bow (which comes in a left, center, or right fit). For 25L, it’s quite a deal!

Loki’s mesh hoodie in all the standard sizes is quite a find indeed, as there is a texture change hud included. The hud changes the t-shirt and hoodie separately, for lots of nerd fun… hero symbols on the shirt and hoodie all separate for whatever hero you want to be that day. For 25L, there’s a hero in every guy just waiting to come out!

Have Some FREE Fun in the Sun!

BRM 1

Hello Fab Free’rs, I don’t know about anyone else but I’ve been in major need of some rest and relaxation. It’s been a hectic week! Fortunately there’s a little spot I’ve been meaning to check out in Second Life called BRM Radio that can provide just that. It’s a serene waterside location with awesome music to listen to while you enjoy the surroundings. Not to mention there’s some free swag! Also, I recently came across this lovely skin from a new-to-me shop called E. Vary. I really like this skin quite a bit!
BRM First, I know we focus on free and inexpensive fashion a lot on the Fab Free blog, so I’m happy to let you know about the BRM Radio location. It’s a FREE place to hangout and enjoy some fantastic music as well as the scenery and some activities. There is a 7 Seas Fishing setup at the BRM Radio off one of the docks. Need a place to rez? The land is open to rezing for all group members. *UPDATE 6/26/2016 – Rezing is open for everyone, no group needed! Fancy a little boating? The BRM Radio location is on the open water, and there’s a FREE boat rez-er so you and your friends or perhaps a significant other can enjoy an afternoon on the water. Additionally find this cute mesh ladies BRM logo Henley inside the office at the landing point  for FREE. You’ll need to join the BRM Radio group, however the group is also FREE to join. The shirt is fully mesh and includes a color change hud with several color options. I love this style top for a cute, comfy, casual look, not to mention it’s kind of perfect for boating. There’s also a men’s version available as well, and a BRM Radio lanyard. If you enjoy the music while you’re there, and I’m sure you will, BRM Radio also has a link so you can listen to BRM Radio while at your home land. I hope you enjoy this relaxing little spot, maybe I’ll see you there!

Now, let’s talk about this skin from E. Vary. This lovely skin is the FREE June subscriber group gift from E. Vary. Her name is Lina – Morena, and I think she’s very pretty. This generous group gift includes classic system skins, tattoo lipstick, freckle, and eye-shadow layers, 4 shapes, an Omega body applier with cleavage options, as well as a mesh head hud that includes options for Catwa, Eve, Genesis, Visage, and Omega compatible heads. Also the system skins and the mesh head applier hud allow you to choose to wear the skin bare, with no freckles/beauty marks or makeup, or with them.

A Class Act!

whc art class 3_001

I was sitting around the coffee shop as I often do, waiting for inspiration to strike me. I would do it at home, but you know that look you get when you think of something smart? Well, I figure if I am ever gonna get that look, I want to make sure someone sees me wearing it! So I was sitting in the coffee shop and suddenly like BOOM! There it was…”The Riler University Of Art!” For only five lindens a class, you can learn from the Masters. (I am only gonna hire people with the last name of Masters to instruct students.) For that small class fee, you will have a unique opportunity to be taught by the best people willing to work for me. You will learn how to use words like “create” which instantly increases the value of a piece of work over one that you “did”! Art can be a very messy and complex area of study, so what better way to learn about it than from people who don’t deal in complexities? At The Riler University Of Art, we make art! Or actually, we make you make art. Either way, there is art and you. That is what we are all about.

Above, you can see me preparing for a class. Of all the jobs I have ever had that I could do in a bathrobe, this is truly the most rewarding! Sadly…the most financially rewarding. The masculine looking black bathrobe I am wearing is a free gift from Gothicatz, their Logo Black Robe. Suitable for making coffee to drink in a sunlit breakfast nook, or perhaps to wear while binge watching The Walking Dead in the flickering light of the living room TV, a good robe can be very versatile indeed! This one fits quite well, coming in five sizes. Although it does bear a good amount of logo-ing on its texture, it is a very well made Mesh robe. Stop by Gothicatz and pick it up, a man can accomplish many great things without leaving his favorite bathrobe. Those are truly words to live by.

7 Deadly S{K}ins is one of my all time favorite skin stores on the grid, and for men probably the single most generous one I am aware of. Congratulations to them for reaching their third Anniversary on Second Life! The celebration is now in full swing and all male avies who have not yet joined 7DS should consider doing so right away, as their group join is on sale for only 13L right now. On top of that, Izara has put out the Zyon Anniversary skins you see me wearing in this week’s pictures. Included in the 13L box are two skin tones (Cotton and Taupe) with three variations of facial hair for each. As if that isn’t enough, each of those comes with and without hairbase and they even throw in SLINK and OMEGA appliers too! This gift is bursting with goodies and a bargain at only 13L! When you visit 7 Deadly S{K}ins, make sure you pick up the March group gift skin as well. It is every bit as handsome as this one is! Join the group today and pick up this fantastic 13L Anniversary gift. It’s only going to be out for a very limited time, so get going and pick this up!

Riler University, it turns out, has temporarily shuttered its windows I am sad to announce. There were some unsavory rumors spread around that it was merely an excuse for me get naked and collect some pocket change. As soon as my legal problems come to an end, I will be back to help you make art all over the place! Believe me, that’s a promise! Until then, take care and see you on the grid!—–WHC Riler

This Is An 80’s Take On Me.

80's1

Hello again all my radical readers! I’m totally channeling the 80’s today. I was born in the 80’s, so was really too young to appreciate them while in them. Now though, I love everything about that decade, and when I received the Midnight Mania board gift from Tori’s Stylez, I was transported back in time. Do you like my A-Ha inspired picture? *grins*

80's3

OK, now that you all have seen a picture that really shows what I’m wearing, let me tell you about it. My super cute dress, and thigh-high boots are what you will get if the Midnight Mania board over at Tori’s Stylez gets it’s required 75 slaps. The Shirazz dress in pink is mesh, and comes in the standard SL sizes, as well as several mesh body sizes. It also has a texture change hud for that little striped peekaboo part of the dress, with loads of colour choices. The Sammi boots are also mesh, and come in sizes for several mesh bodies, but none specifically for standard SL avs. However, I found for my standard medium shape, the Isis sized boots fit perfectly! As if that wasn’t enough, there is also a set of grey panties included, both clothing layer, and through an omega applier. I know right! So much, and all for free🙂

80's2

Naturally, I needed some jewelry, and it couldn’t be typical, it needed to be fun! While opening up the many gifts that I grabbed from the Liaison Collaborative‘s 3rd Anniversary round, I came across the simple, but totally not boring, necklace and earring set from Lybra. You get both a gold and silver set of these, and I think they are just the right amount of funky to live up to the 80’s image. Not everything has to be big, bold and neon coloured to pull off this look. This jewelry is free, and the Liaison Collaborative is open until March 30th, so if you haven’t been yet, you still have time!

My last addition is the pretty skin I have on. It is the current free group gift from AlterEgo for the Toxxic Design Studios group. Now, this group does have a L$500 join fee, but this is the second group gift I’ve gotten from them since I joined, with more to come, so I think it’s a small price to pay. Ayla comes in the rose tone, and if you need appliers, they are conveniently located underneath the poster, each for a small fee. I think the cat’s eye eyeshadow is perfect.

OK, before I head out, just wanted to give a shout out to my picture location. Sometimes it’s really hard to find a locale that works with whatever look I’ve put together, but I was lucky with Joystick’s Arcade. There is no denying its decade😛 Most of the arcade games are even playable! If you love the 80’s, or arcades, you need to go take a look.

That’s it for me! I shall leave you all with my title 80’s song, you know you’ll want to sing along. Until I see you all again, TTFN!

Grim, And Yet So Pleasant A Find!

whctlb 1

Hi everyone! Sadly, the excellent Jack Or Jill Hunt is over. There is, however, at least one free prize a creator has left out for us straggling hunters, and it is not to be missed! The Little Bat offered the Grim Outfit W/Hud for the Jack Or Jill Hunt containing the Grim Jacket & Shirt shown above. The jacket is a one piece mesh combo featuring a simple denim jacket, well-textured and very realistic-looking over a foreboding skull T-Shirt. The Tee is texture change via included hud and offers you six color choices to choose from. I really appreciate it when designers offer us something with texture change options. It moves the items high up on my “Wanted” list. That isn’t all that is included in this free gift though! The Little Bat also throws in the jeans I am wearing in two styles: Straight and Tapered. Both versions come in five sizes as does the Jacket & Shirt combo, so getting a good fit will be a breeze. Run to get this item, it could be gone any minute!

WHC const vest 1

Pru previously mentioned a store over at the shopping event called Swank here. Swank is a themed monthly sales event and this month the theme is “Luck Of The Irish”! There are free gifts and inexpensive gachas to be found there, so it is worth popping by for a visit. It just so happens when I was over there I found something I liked quite a bit! The Safety Vest – The Boss from Dita Couture is at The Swank Event on a Gacha for only 30L per play. It looks very realistic and while it isn’t something you would normally wear every day, it is definitely a fun item to pick up. It could come in very handy role-playing on Second Life or if you happen to be a male dancer, it could be part of a very sexy stage outfit. Either way, for only 30L it is something that deserves your consideration.

Also at The Swank Event are the free eyes I am wearing this week, the Ivernia Shamrock Eyes from Dulce Secrets. To show off how nice they are, I inset a close up on the top picture which hopefully does them justice. They are offered in both regular and Mesh versions and make for an excellent free gift to pick up. I collect eyes on SL and was thrilled to add these to my collection, I hope you will be too!

That’s it for me, now it’s time to wander off to first life for a while. I hope you all have some fun tonight on the grid, however you enjoy spending your time there. For now I will leave you my friends with my best wishes, have fun and see you on the grid very soon!—–WHC Riler

Lucky Me!

Lucky Me!

I’m feeling lucky today! Are you? It must be all these lucky finds out on these great March hunts! The Women’s Stuff Hunt is proving lucky indeed with some great finds… like this applier shirt and this belly button ring!

To get my fun applier corset top, which comes in a universal hud or system layers either one, just take a jaunt over to 1 Hundred. It will only cost you a little hunting for the little red Women’s Stuff Hunt T-shirt and the tiny sum of 1L.

My fun 4-leaf clover belly button ring is courtesy of Vengeful Threads and is a FREE Women’s Stuff Hunt gift if you take a look around their main-store and find the little red T-shirt.

After all that hunting, I decided to head over to The Blarney Stone, where the drinks were on the house! Cheers!

Shiny Shabby Surely!

whc rispetto 1_001

whc rispetto 2_002

Hello everyone! It is I, your intrepid male freebie/cheapie hunter with a quick post for you. February will be over soon and will bring to a close two fabulous hunts: Menstuff and Jack Or Jill. If you have been putting it off, now is the time to start hunting! The amount of quality men’s hunt prizes available at the moment is impressive, and all yours for a little bit of effort! Even more time sensitive, though, is a pair of freebies that are available right now and will not be out very much longer.

Shiny Shabby is celebrating it’s anniversary on Second Life by throwing a big sales event featuring an unbelievable number of freebies. The Hoorenbeek stall at Shiny Shabby is offering as its free anniversary gift the Mesh Military Boots in Burgundy. As with all Hoorenbeek products, the texturing is amazing and the overall quality is excellent. I never pass up an opportunity to pick up free Hoorenbeek and neither should you, especially since this gift comes with both male and female versions in the box. The boots come in regular and short variations with the eyelets and laces texture changable via hud, and if that isn’t generous enough they also include the mesh jeans i am wearing and the mesh belt in two variants! While over at Shiny Shabby also check out what Amacci has put out as a free gift. The Zenith Eyes in Mocha are a striking set of Mesh eyes adjustable via hud. Additionally included are versions for those who prefer using legacy eyes. As you can see by the many Shiny Shabby items featured on Fab Free this week, it is an event not to be missed. Now you have two more excellent reasons to head on over there!

I started this post mentioning two great men’s hunts that are winding up this month. Rispetto Designsfree Jack Or Jill Hunt gift is the Devin MESH Jacket & Hoodie in Army. As you can see from my lead picture it is a very casual looking garment. Appearing to be made up of multiple layers, this one piece of integrated mesh is beautifully textured to look well-worn and comfortable. Coming in five sizes, two of which are fitmesh, this is a free hunt gift definitely worth getting your hands on. Also on the Jack Or Jill Hunt is the free hunt gift from 7 Deadly S{K}ins. The River in Taupe skin is a very handsome skin. Even though I usually like to show off skins by getting close to naked, this time I decided to spare all of you the gratuitous near nudity and just tell you it’s a fine example of the kind of quality skins 7 Deadly S{K}ins is known for producing. When you are picking up these two hunt gifts look for the Menstuff Hunt prizes as well since both stores are also participating in that also.

That is all I have for you at the moment, but rest assured I will try to tempt you into going hunting at least once more before this month is over. Until next time my friends, take care and see you on the grid!—–WHC Riler

Music to My Ears

Quality FREE clothes in Second Life are always music to my ears! And if you haven’t stopped by Free Dove lately to check out the many wonderful offerings by all the creative designers who come together in one great location to give you goodies, you are missing out! I’m giving you a peek at just a few items you can pick up at Free Dove to give you an idea of the lovely things available!

Music to My Ears 1

Free Dove has it all for both Ladies and Gents… from the casual to the elegant! My fun casual side tie t-shirt and skirt outfit above with its cute Gothic print on the shirt is a FREE gift you can pick up courtesy of Iconica at Free Dove. Like all the gifts, no group is required. Just buy it for 0L.

Music to My Ears 2

Free Dove has plenty of elegant looks as well. Don’t be fooled by my casual attire in the first picture. I picked up this classy Simply Dressy black dress by Apple May Designs for FREE at Free Dove as well. It is their current FREE gift at the location. It is just long enough to be a cocktail dress, but a little short for my modesty, so I paired it with a pair of capris from my inventory, but you could certainly wear it alone!

I also nabbed a pair of really stylish FREE slink heels by Vavien Stylish while I was there. These strappy stilettos were just the thing to keep my dress looking dressy, even though I paired it with jeans😉

There really are too many great FREE gifts at the Free Dove to share with you in one post. Don’t wait, head there and check it out for yourself!
