Fortune’s Fool

Fortune's Fool

“I am fortune’s fool!” – Romeo, Romeo & Juliette – Shakespeare

Hello Fab Free’rs! It’s my favorite time of year. The weather starts to get cooler, the leaves turn, and Halloween is just around the corner. I can tell from these playful if mildly occult themed gifts from the Garden of Shadows event that many of the designers in Second Life are getting into that magical mystical spirit of the season as well. At the current round of Garden of Shadows many of the participating designers put out at least one, sometimes several, 10 linden gifts. There’s no need to join a group or wear a tag to purchase these event cheapies. While shopping the event I saw 10 linden gifts for the ladies, gifts for the gentlemen, unisex items, and even some home goods. I picked out three of the gifts to share with you, I hope you like them!

The Top – It’s no mistake that these Garden of Shadows event gifts I chose to share have a slight fortune telling theme to them. I’ve always had a fascination with the other worldly and mystical. This top is from a shop called Shinu Made. This mini crop top has a fun, macabre Ouija board print complete with dancing skeletons. It comes in three mesh sizes, and is just 10 linden.
Sizes Included – Slink, Maitreya, Belleza (There is a single mesh size for each body.)

The Necklace – The flat black kitty cat necklace Pru is wearing is another 10 linden gift at the Garden of Shadows shopping event. This one is from a shop called ProFect. It does not have any scripts, which makes it a low lag accessory, and it can be manually resized.

The Crystals – I think these Divination Crystals from Melt are a really fun, beautiful accessory/prop. They spin and rotate as if propelled by magic. This Garden of Shadows gift is also just 10 linden. Along with the spinning animation, they have their own hold pose to complete the effect. Also included is a color change hud for the crystals that gives you 8 color options.

Here are the details, enjoy!

Pleasure comes in all disguises

Pleasure comes in all disguises

Hi there. I was just admiring my new shoes. Aren’t they great? I’ve got some other things to tell you about too. Two of them are free with no group join or anything required, and the last is a free gift for a free group!

The pose sets the mood

Poses are too often overlooked and always very important. I’ll stay off of my soap box for now, but it’s a sentiment that I’ve expressed before and I think it’s extra true in this case. The [west end] mainstore has moved, so to celebrate there is a free pack of poses out in the new store. They’re all cool, movement filled poses like this one. It includes 6 poses – 3 separate poses and their mirrors and will only be out for a very limited time.

But the shoes matter too

These shoes are a free gift at Ricielli at the Cosmopolitan location and they can be yours just for showing up. There is a gift bag at the store up on a shelf. Click the bag, buy it for 0L, and watch the magic happen…the magic being free shoes with no strings attached. They come in sizes for:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique

Okay, the whole mess is important

Obviously, the undies I’m wearing are important too for modesty reasons…if I can even use the word modesty in a description of this particular picture. I got the ones that I’m wearing here from Elegance Boutique. They come with a color HUD so you can make them match pretty much anything that your heart desires, along with a few pattern options if you’re feeling sassy. To get them, I just joined the free Elegance Boutique group and than click on the vendor at the Cosmopolitan location to get my free gift. In addition to the HUD, it includes the panties sized for:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis & Venus
  • Miatreya
  • Slink Hourglass & Physique

Here we are now, entertain us

Here we are now, entertain us

Hi! I went a little overboard on the group gifts in this post. I was browsing through my inventory and one thing led to another and they all ended up on at the same time. I’m enjoying the vibe though, it’s very 90s punk rock and had me singing Nirvana to myself.

Versatile Dress

My dress is from Avale. It’s a really great little black dress that is a necessity in every inventory. This dress would be great dressed up but clearly it’s also very versatile because I did this kinda punk thing with it and I think it works beautifully for that too. To get the dress I just tped over to Avale, joined the free group, and clicked on the picture of a present to get my free group gift. It comes in sizes for:

  • Freya Perky
  • Hourglass
  • Isis Perky
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • TMP

Punk Staple

I can’t believe how well made and perfect this plaid shirt is that I’m wearing tied around my waist. Coco gives out the best group gifts and if you don’t believe me just get an eyeful of the huge wall of past gifts available in the store. This newest free group gift can be snatched up as well by joining the free group and it includes sizes for Freya, HG, Isis, MT and Slink.

But first let me take a selfie

The cell phone that I’m using comes with 6 poses – 3 male and 3 female. I love a good selfie pose, don’t you? Both the phone and the poses are free group gifts for the Dubai Event VIP group. My link will take you to the group profile. Just join the group (it’s free) and check the past notices for the box. The gift is there waiting for you.

Searching for A Prince and Only Finding Frogs

Searching for A Prince
Hello Again Fab Free’rs! I’m happy you’re here. I have to tell you, I wish I’d payed closer attention to the Enchantment’s Frog Prince Hunt. It was suggested to me by a friend. Other than Aline’s cute “Purple is Pleasant” post, I hadn’t really paid attention until now. I know! Don’t scold me too harshly!  The good news is that the hunt runs until August 31st, so there’s still enough time to search for cute little frogs. The even better news is that the hunt is free. Find the frog, and pay zero linden to get your prize! That said, I picked a few personal favorite Frog Prince Hunt prizes to share with you.

The Kissing Frog – The cute little amphibian in Pru’s hands is part of the Frog Prince Hunt prize from The Cove. This animated pose has your avatar give this little guy a sweet kiss. I know I’ve kissed a few frogs in my time in hopes of finding a prince! This little frog is a lot cuter though. To get yours, head over to The Cove and search for the frog!

Hint – Bubble Bubble Toil and Trouble

The Ring – If you haven’t seen Disney’s “The Princess and The Frog” you need to! It’s one I’ve seen many times, and a genuine favorite of the more recent Disney animated movies. I mentioned this because the Frog Prince Hunt prize at Dahlia is clearly inspired by that movie. This pretty pearl ring is part of a set of 3 rings, two of which are shaped like fireflies. I’ll add a photo below of the vendor ad by Dahlia so you can get a look at the entire set. If you have seen the movie, you’ll also understand even more why I picked this adorable ring set as one of my favorites!

Hint – This Frog is Curious
Dahlia - Bayou - Evangeline - Ring Set - HUNT GIFT

The Firefly Headband – I like this Frog Prince Hunt prize by Lagom because it’s whimsical and pretty, and I feel whimsical and pretty wearing it. The cute little yellow “fireflies” do seem to glow in an almost enchanted way. The headband comes equipped with resize scripts for easy fitting. I don’t think any princess should be without it. Just like all the Enchantment Frog Prince Hunt prizes, this one from Lagom is free.

Hint – Through the Mist

Here are the details, enjoy!

Hair – TRUTH Wind [Browns] – Past Gacha
Headband – LAGOM – Firefly headband – Free Enchantment Frog Prince Hunt Prize
Head – CATWA HEAD Koura Bento
Skin –  Essences – Blake
Eyes – [Buzzeri] Celestial Eyes – Wolf
Ears – ^^Swallow^^ Pixie Ears
Lip Gloss – ~Shiny Stuffs~ CATWA Honey Lips Appliers
Tattoos – Speakeasy – Fear – 1L on the Marketplace *Originally Shown Here
Frog w/Pose – *The Cove* Kissing Frog – Free Enchantment Frog Prince Hunt Prize
Ring – Dahlia – Bayou – Evangeline – Ring Set – Free Enchantment Frog Prince Hunt Prize

Dear Summer: I’m Going To Miss You

FabFree: Dear Summer, I'm Going To Miss You

Fabulouses!!!!  Where the heck did summer go?  We only have two more weeks left to wear all of these fabulous bikinis and swimsuits that designers have been putting out for us this season!

One More…

I say one more, but you know there will be others lol…  I love swimwear :).  This hot floral one piece is called Sexy Swimsuit and is available on the 1Hundred display at The Wash Cart Sale for just 10L per colour.  I’d like to say it’s high on the hips, but it has skipped the hips entirely and gone straight up to the waist.  Sira Savira (designer of 1Hundred) was right…  it is one “Sexy Suit”!

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Isis & Freya

ENJOY!!

A place in the sun

A place in the sun

Pretty sunshine and a cute outfit…I mean, it’s not the beach but it’s still pretty great!

The whole kit and Caboodle

Caboodle’s store name always makes me think of that saying. I’m not really going anywhere with that…it just does. ANYWAY, this super cute top is the newest free group gift from Caboodle. It’s seriously sooooo adorable. It’s cropped just perfect and the texture is fab and the little flowers along the bottom are just the right finishing touch. This shirt comes sized just for Maitreya and Hourglass, and with a HUD that lets you change the color of the flowers, the trim, and the shirt itself independently. There are a bunch of pretty pastel shades and some of them have a really cool metallic kind of sheen to them. Caboodle is 50L to join and there’s a wall of really well done group gifts available behind the desk when you enter the store.

I’m an Urban Farmer

I don’t even know what that means, but it’s the name of these great pants that I’m wearing. My subtitles are really lacking tonight. The pants that I’m referring to are a free group gift from Loordes of London and the group is free to join. I popped over to grab the FabFree group gift sandals (which I’m not wearing) and came away with so much more. It’s the story of my SLife, but at least they were free in this case! I just love the cute style and it comes in these sizes:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Lara
  • Physique
  • Venus
  • 5 classic sizes, XXS-L

 

Oh one last thing – my pose is technically a freebie as well. It’s by IOS but it’s the unpack pose from Euphoric and you can get it for free by going and grabbing the group gifts that Aline posted about here the other day. I’m such a pose hoarder, surely I’m not the only one who saves and uses cute unpack poses? Or maybe I am. Don’t answer that.

Can’t Get My Ducks in a Row

Getting My Ducks in a Row

“Go for a bike ride,” she said. “The fresh air will be good for you,” she said.

She forgot to mention the ducks. They won’t quit following me, and I think one of them is pretty sure I’m its dad. :-/

But enough about my problems. On to the free stuff!

More Gifts for Men

L’Homme Magazine SL is celebrating its 4th anniversary this month, and 20 of SL’s top designers have set out gifts for members of the L’Homme Magazine Readers Group.

I’m wearing a couple of the gifts today:

  • My beard is the gift from Mister Razzor. The Luigi Facial Hair comes in black, grey, and a tintable version for Catwa mesh heads, and black and tintable versions for Omega-compatible heads.
  • Kalback set out a fatpack of Sweat Shorts as their gift. They fit Gianni and Jake mesh bodies and come with a HUD containing 8 different underwear patterns and 9 patterns for the pants.

There have been several anniversary parties going on this month so be sure to check the group notices for details.

About the Bike

This cool mountain bike is a gift from Animosity for the Men Only Hunt 11 (MOH11). It includes the Billy Pose Pack with 8 different poses. Animated and non-animated versions of the bike are included.

Note: The bike is a prop and needs to be rezzed in order to be used.

More Fab Free coverage of the Men Only Hunt 11:

Don’t forget: the Men Only Hunt 11 ends at 8:00 a.m. SLT on August 18th.

Enjoy!

My back’s against the wall

My back's against the wall

Hi there! I’ve put together some pretty things to show you. I hope you like them!

Most literal title ever

There is a new free group gift at Ana Boutique, and it is a set of 3 poses designed to be used leaning up against a wall. They’re really fantastic. If you want to lean up against some walls too (and why wouldn’t you?), you’ll just need to join the free Ana Boutique group. You’ll find this pose pack and a few other free gifts on the wall above the stairs.

Hair, hair everywhere

I think that the thing that I buy the most of in SL is hair. Like, as soon as we finish up here I’m probably going to hit up the Saturday sale, where I will undoubtedly find some hair that I need and can’t live without. But when they’re on sale or free, it so hard to say no. This specific hair was FREE and it’s really cute. If that’s wrong then I don’t want to be right! I picked it up at Ayashi. There are two groups there, a free group and a paid group. This hair is a gift for the free group. Hopefully my slurl there takes you right where you need to go, but if it doesn’t there is a teleport board straight ahead when you walk into the store. Just choose Gift Room and you’ll see this pack and a few others on the wall. The super cute ‘do that I’m wearing here comes as a fatpack. I love the straight bangs and how the front is pulled back. It’s short and sassy and perfect.
