Getting the kinks worked out…

Writing these posts are hard work… Teleporting all over the place to find great freebie finds for all of you can leave me sore and tense. Good thing my latest find was perfect for that afternoon massage. At Rose Marine & Polo Paul I found the Mesh Yoga Pants and Rio Sandals for FREE! No group join, just click the gift and receive. It’s that simple. The yoga pants come in the standard sizes XS-XL, and the sandals are great for just hanging around your skybox or estate.

Towel me more…

Lovely knitwear

Lovely knitwear

Taking cues from your peers.

Upon reading Carson latest blog post {HERE} I was inspired to head down to Prism Designs to check and see if there was a group gift out for the ladies as well. I’ve been a longtime member of the Prism Designs group thanks to being introduced to this particular merchant via the FabFree blog, specifically Julianna’s posts, and have kept the group tag since those early SL days due to Prism’s top notch products, great deals, and frequent gifts. With that being said, it didn’t take very much poking around at all to locate the new group gift at Prism Designs and when I saw what it was, it made me rethink the theme of that ‘blog segment’ that I had planned on doing.

It’s all about keeping warm and toasty.

What I had originally had in mind centered around ball gowns and party wear but with the chill, upon us, I thought I’d highlight the often understated knitwear. At face value, it’s probably not as exciting as demon dresses or warrior armor but hey, this is SL and I’m sure I’ll find some interesting designs to wear. Hence I bring to you today the Paige dress, the new and free group gift from Prism Designs mentioned above. If you have to brave the cold then why not opt for something that will not only make you feel snug and cozy but looks it as well. Personally, I feel that the Paige dress strikes a good balance between being form flattering and comfortable to wear. It’s tan belt really accentuates the waistline but is a simple enough accessory that it doesn’t overwhelm the dress’ loose high neck. If you’re looking to be a stand out while walking the snowy streets this season then the Paige dress will certainly work in your favor when it’s warm magenta coloring contrasts with the icy backdrop. The Paige dress comes in five standard mesh sizes (XXS-L) with a nifty alpha layer included. As it is almost to the end of November, I’m not sure how long this gift will be out so hurry on down to Prism Designs today to join their free group and get your hands on this awesome dress. While you’re there do check out the gifts and hunts room to pick up the other group gifts that are out and to also check out the different hunts that Prism Designs are currently participating in. Have fun!

Don’t you just love an extension?

I certainly do, especially when it comes to real life deadlines (lol) Sometimes extension mean good things in SL and the prime example of that is the sale at Truth being extended until 12-noon slt today! The sale was mentioned {HERE} by Love and {HERE} by Kathryn, but to give you a refresher 48 selected hair styles a the Truth Mainstore have been marked down to 75L per color pack (100 L per variety pack and 500 L per fatpack) The hairstyle that I’m wearing in the picture is called Foxy and comes with hat/no hat variations as well as hair of different sizing so that it doesn’t cut into your front. There are two alpha layers provided with one that covers up the avatars ears in case you don’t want those sticking out. What’s more both the hair and hat comes with extensive huds giving you the ability to customize to your heart’s content. If you’ve missed out on the Truth Hair sale so far don’t delay as there are other great quality hairstyles to be had.

How about a pretty pair of heels?

There’s really nothing that gives an outfit an extra punch like statement shoes do. I’m a big fan of bright shoes in my first life, which would probably explain why I saw drawn to this pink pair from Kendrasy Creations. These heels are only for Slink High feet and I just love its sweet hue and minimalist design. The bright color though really speaks for itself and I’ll be wearing this pair for a while. Pop down to Kendrasy Creations for this dollarbie. You don’t have to wear any specific group tag to get in on this great bargain.

Hitting two birds with one stone.

Not that I’m about to be throwing stones at any innocent birds but do you remember the post I made {HERE} detailing the gorgeously metallic pair of shoes that are currently out as Enertia’s group gift? Well, joining the Toxxic Design Studios group also gives you access to group gifts from the AlterEgo skin store as well! The skin that I’m wearing in the picture above is called Natalia in the sunkissed tone. As a fan of subtle makeup and full eyebrows, I fell in love with this skin instantly. In the package, you’ll get three different classic skin with dark brows, light brows, and no brow options as well as a varied number of appliers. Those are:

  • Appliers for Loudmouth
  • Appliers for mesh heads that are Omega system compatible
  • Appliers for Soul Uni Standard and Mer
  • Appliers for Slink, Belleza, Maitreya, TMP mesh bodies
  • Appliers for Mesh bodies that are Omega system compatible
  • Appliers for Slink, Belleza, and Maireya mesh feet

The final four appliers are in one easy to use Hud so it doesn’t take up inventory space. The Toxxic Designs Studio group is currently set a 0L join fee and as both AlterEgo and Enertia give you group gifts regularly, I suggest you go and snap the current ones asap. You’ve got nothing to loose by joining this free and only a gorgeous, well-detailed skin to gain.

And that’s a wrap for today! Have fun in your SL explorations dear readers. Stay safe!

Court of Owls

Court of Owls

Oh, that lag…

So far my first ‘Black Friday’ experience in Second Life has been fun and quite hectic. My full body alpha has never gotten so much use before and even then there were times when I couldn’t outrun the lag monster. Only in SL can you shop while being half trapped in a wall (lol). Anyway, these offers listed today are time sensitive but if you have a moment to spare check out the Black Friday and Cyber Monday event. Most of these stalls are offering roleplay centric clothing but if you’re not an active role player like me (still on that bucket list) it’s still worth taking a peek to snap up some interesting pieces for your wardrobe. For this event, merchants have 30-35L items for Friday and half price items for Monday, though the vendors are set up through the event so don’t worry if you’re just teleporting in now to get your Friday items. What’s more, there’s a gacha market at the event as well and most of the stalls have a free gift out for visitors.

A girl and her owl

For the picture above I’m wearing the free gift from Pekas Gorean and Urban Designs. The Love and Roses gown come in four standard mesh sizes (XS, S, M, XL) with an alpha layer to stop any bits from sticking out. I really love that full skirt and the rippled folds going down its sides are a very pretty detailing. You can never go wrong with the black and white combination and I adore the chalky flower patterns on the skirt and train of this gown.

My graphics card has been a bit grumpy as of late, as you might have noticed as I haven’t been sim hopping as much as I want to. Taking pictures in a box in one’s backyard can get a little lonely so I decided to add this little guy into the mix for today to keep me company. He’s from the Queen of Peace pose set by Belle Poses and is available for at the Black Friday and Cyber Monday event for 35L. There are six elegant poses in the pack and you’ll get six different owls as well so there’s no need to fuss with the position of your feathered friend. He’s so cute that I might just rezz him for fun around the house though I hope the cats don’t try to eat him.

Another day another hair sale

Looks like I haven’t gotten my fill of hair sales after the first day of the Black Friday run. In all honesty, though, I had thought to hang my hat up and then saw that Ayashi was having a 30% off sale for its hairpacks and 50% off on gachas. Seeing that gachas are one of my biggest weaknesses I was off like a shot and picked up the Rumi hair for 50L. That the gacha machine gave me the pink set was just a bonus! The hair sale at Ayashi ends on the 28th.

Skin deep

I was pretty pleased to find that one of my favorite skin stores, WoW Skins was participating the Black Friday and Cyber Monday event. I picked up the Ines skin for just 30L and was pleasantly surprised to discover that it contained six skin fatpacks in five tones. There are cleavage/no cleavage options for each skin as well as appliers for Slink, Lolas and Phat Azz included in the package. What’s more, there are two freckles tattoo layers included as well, making me a very happy shopper.

All about that bling

Full disclosure, I’ve never really worn very many accessories in world. I always vow to punch up my outfits a little bit more with bracelets or earrings or necklaces and then turn around again to grab that full body alpha layer because I’m going to an event. The perils of lag and blogging amirite? Looking through the various free gifts that I picked up at the Black Friday and Cyber Monday event, however, I found a beautiful jewelry set by Footpaw industries. It includes a tiara, earrings, bracelets, two hair accessories and a necklace. I’m only wearing the necklace in the picture above and thought that it’s glittery diamonds and artistic design made the entire outfit more refined.

And that’s a wrap for today dear readers. Have fun inworld and stay safe!

Through the Woods this Black Friday

Into the woods

Sn@tch up your fishing rods folks, the tides are coming in again!

I was just talking to Kathryn the other day about the fishing prizes at Sn@tch and she commented on what an avid angler I’ve become. It really isn’t hard to get hooked (ha ha) on fishing for prizes as Sn@tch changes out its prize outfits on the regular and they never fail to contain a wide variety of clothing pieces so that you can play around with different looks. Not only that but accessories, makeup and footwear are often thrown into the mix that you can wear with other items in your inventory. The latest Fish 4 This outfit is called Through the Woods and generously contains;

  • Five system snowpants in plum, red, green (pictured), teal and white
  • Snowpants mesh cuffs
  • Two system turtleneck sweaters in grey (pictured) and black
  • Five mesh tops in army (pictured), black, plum, red and teal
  • Mesh Fur Coat
  • Ankle boots
  • Though the Woods makeup tattoo layer in plum (not pictured)

If you have a mesh body or head never fear as you can catch the Omega applier for all the system and tattoo layer parts of the outfit from the prize filled waters. The mesh tops and fur coat come in both come in five standard mesh sizing (XS-XL) with an added fitmesh size for the fur coat and respective alpha layers to help with the fitting. Speaking of alpha layers, one is included for the ankle boots as well and you don’t need to have mesh fit to be able to slide these beauties on. Whew! That’s a ton of detail but I had a lot of fun figuring out the color combinations and there are already a few dresses that I have in mind that would go wonderfully with those boots. Fishing at Sn@tch is completely free but you do need to purchase a basic fishing rod for 100L to get in on the fun. Rods are available on the marketplace or at the Sn@tch store. It’s a great investment as you’ll get a lot of mileage on these outfits so to speak and since it’s Sn@tch, it’s top quality!

Into the woods (bonus)

While I was there…

Alright, alright I’ll admit that fishing is not all I do when I’m at Sn@tch. If you’ve been to the store you can’t really fault me for that as there are a lot of great outfits lining the walls. What’s more that are lucky boards to stalk and riot vendors to keep your eyes on so I had great fun multitasking and packing my wardrobe with great clothes from Sn@tch. The gown pictured above is new on their riot vendors and something that I just had to share. I got it for 55L as the store was pretty packed that day and when I opened the package up, I was floored by the options. First of all, you’ll get this glittery and flowing floor length skirt in five standard mesh sizes (XS-XL). Secondly, the strappy and backless top comes in eight different colors and five standard mesh sizes as well (XS-XL). Thirdly, there are also two different alpha layers included in the package to play around with. The subtle dusting of glitter on the skirt and the rhinestones that line the neckline of the top add a glamorous air to the whole outfit. Not only do I intend to wear this for upcoming parties this Chrismas but it’s also given ideas on a new blog segment as well (hmmm). Bring a friend or ten to Sn@tch today and pull those prices down, down, down to get the Gala Sparkling Brocade Gown into your inventory as well.

So you may have noticed…

So you may have noticed that I’m wearing a different hairstyle in each picture. That’s because of Black Friday and the insane number of sales that are going on right now. The offers that I’m about to list down are time sensitive as they end today but there’s nothing like a bit of rushing to get that adrenaline pumping I’d like to say. In the top three pictures, I’m wearing hairstyles from Doe that is having a 50% off sale for all of its Gachas. Playing a Gacha from this store has always been a staple for me at Gacha events so I was over the moon excited. Doe always has the cutest hairstyles and their colors are always so vibrant.

In the bottom two pictures, I’m wearing hairstyles from Besom. The store is marking down its hair packs to 75L and I took the opportunity to fill up the gaps in my Besom hair collection. I’ve always been a fan of the wonderful texturing of Besom hairstyles and their styles have an urban flavor to it yet still look so elegant. Hurry down to both stores to take advantage of these great deals maybe we’ll bump into each other as I’m certainly making the trip back.

7 Deadly s{K}ins is going to be having free group join starting from the 28th of November! I can’t say enough how much I love the skins from this merchant and they always have such great perks for their group members. Not only are there regular monthly group gifts, there are also Midnight Mania and Mini Mania boards as well as Lucky Chairs. While browsing through their Black Friday Sale (60% off CasperVend items!) I managed to claim the Libra skin for myself. I’m been eyeing this skin set for so long that I was jumping for joy to see that my letter was up. Luckily I didn’t hit the ‘discard’ button in my excitement so now I’ll be able to tell you all about the Libra skin set! In the package, you’ll receive the Libra classic skin with cleavage/no cleavage options in five different tones (Pineapple tone pictured) as well as appliers for Slink hands and feet, Tango boob, and Phat Azz. What I thought was special about this skin package was that a version of this skin in Gothic makeup is included as well. The Gothic skins come in the same five tones as well as cleavage/no cleavage options. You’ll get twenty skins in one pack as a lucky chair prize, how mind-blowing is that? Mark your calenders for the 28th and wait patiently…

You might also want to…

Check out Elephante poses. The store is having a Black Friday and Retirement sale with the entire store excluding collabs and new releases being marked down to 50% off. The older stock is being marked down to 75% off so be sure to look for purple and white tagged items for more discounts. I really love using the poses here as they’re very fluid so come and take advantage of the sales before it ends on the 27th of this month.

And that’s a wrap for today. I’ve gotta dive back into those Black Friday sales. Maybe I can even claw my way to the one at Truth….

Gaps in the wardrobe.

Gaps? But Sheidey what are you talking about? Some Second Life inventories are possibly related to literal black holes! In all seriousness, though I took a good long look at the theoretical mass (and mess!) that is my inventory and realized that I didn’t have very many options when it came to pants. Needing a quick fix and seeing as throwing away my dresses and skirts were out of the question, I decided to hit some sales. In my previous post {HERE} I mentioned a store called Wertina and not only do they sell some great shoes, but they also have a good variety of clothing items in stock as well. Pictured is the Biker pants in black that are simply a study in fitted leather and look great at any angle. The leather studs that go down on either side of the pants are a great feature just like the distressed leather detailing around the knees. The Biker pants come in five standard mesh sizes (XS-L) with an alpha layer included and cost just 15L because of the closing down sale that Wertina is holding. Pop down to the store to browse! With everything marked down to 5L-35L, you might just find something to fill up the gaps in your wardrobe too.  The closing sale at Wertina ends on the 31st of December.

More metallic goodness!

Now that I have a perfect pair of pants, I was determined to find some fitting footwear for it. Luckily enough Enertia is offering up the Kehlani heels as a free group gift and the metallic sheen to the straps and body of these shoes was exactly what I was looking for. Personally, I feel that the edgy style of these heels paired off nicely with the outfit, but if metallics aren’t your cup of tea there’s also a Hud included in the gift package with five other color options. What’s more, you’ll be getting sizing for Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza feet as well. Add the Kehalni heels into your shoe collection today by joining the Toxxic Designs Studios group for free.

It’s a hair affair!

Hairology has been a hot topic here with the ladies of FabFree and rightly so as the 1st Anniversary of the event is filled with awesome goodies from top quality designers. I found the final touch to my outfit there in the form of a dollarbie hair gift from Vanity Hair. Buns have such a bad rep for being uptight but this beautifully textured updo is simply elegant. Natural colors isn’t something that I’d usually go for when hairstyles are concerned but this gift and it’s Hud that contains four rich tones to choose from certainly inspired me to give the ‘naturals’ a chance. While there is no alpha layer provided, there’s a nifty resizer in the hud which makes fitting hassle free and the hairdo itself has copy permissions enabled so that you can make duplicates for backup. This round of Hairology closes at the end of the month so don’t miss out!

For more coverage on the gifts at Hairology check out these posts:

 In plain sight.

While slapping the Midnight Mania boards at WoW Skins the other day I ran into (literally, thanks lag) this free gift in the games room. This very generous gift contains the classic Soraya skin in the tan tone with both cleavage/no cleavage options as well as appliers for Phat Azz, Slink Hands and Feet, Ghetto Booty and Lolas Tango. You’ll also receive a brow base and shape but my favorite aspect of this skin aside from the fact that it’s totally free are the two freckles tattoo layer that comes included in the package as well. My very first skin in SL was freckled as well so it was good to come back to the look after a while away.

Speaking of going back to old looks, I’ve gone back to blue-grey eyes as well after experimenting with different colored peepers. The aptly named Athena eyes are a free gift from Mesange and not only will you be receiving system eyes but mesh ones as well with Genesis and Omega Huds. I feel wiser already for snapping up this gift and maybe I’ll be sticking to this pair for a while.

And that’s a wrap. I’d like to wish a happy and safe Thanksgiving to those who celebrate it. Have fun out there dear readers. Till next time!

Beautiful Era

Beautiful era

Such exciting times!

Looks like the FabFree Group Gift list is growing again and I hope you’ve wasted no time in reaping all of the generous offerings. For my part, I had fun hopping from store to store and now with everything unpacked and organized (whew!) I’ve come to share one of these gifts with you plus some other free and under 75L finds. If you aren’t a part of the FabFree group yet, get in on the fun by pasting the following link into the local chat of your SL viewer secondlife:///app/group/020fa7af-444d-f54f-01e2-557ec06315fd/about and then clicking on the link. Are you all set? Great! Cause I’m ready to share!

A spoonful of sugar makes the medicine go down…

Hunting out great deals for all you lovely readers out there is not something that I would consider a chore but one look at the Tiffany dress from Belle Epoque immediately brought to mind this song from the Mary Poppins movie. Not only is the lovely lavender coloring reminiscent of candy floss, its hooped skirt and delicate lace detailing add a very feminine touch. The buttons on this dress are well-crafted, eye-catching details and I appreciate that they go right up to the dress’ high collar.  I haven’t had the chance to strike role playing off my bucket list but I imagine that this dress would be a good fit on a Steampunk or Victorian sim. The Tiffany dress comes in five standard mesh sizes (XXS-L) with an alpha layer included in the folder to help with the fitting. All you need to do to have this beautiful new addition to your wardrobe is to head on over to Belle Epoque, activate your Fabulously Free in SL group tag and click away. The dress is yours for free. While you’re there at Belle Epoque as they have other beautiful dresses with a vintage feel in their collection.

Step out in style!

I’ve paired off the Tiffany dress with boots (what else?) from Baby Monkey one of my favorite shoe stores. Sometimes it’s hard to find boots with both a relaxed and formal feel to them but I think that the Pixie boots manage to balance out these two facets really well with the studded detailing and low heel. What’s better is that the Pixie boots are made for both mesh and classic system feet. In the package, you will receive a pair for classic feet as well as pairs for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink flat feet. An alpha layer and boot fitter are also included in the pack as well as an easy to use Hud which will help you modify the look and feet of your boots to your liking. The Pixie boots are just one of the group gifts available at Baby Monkey and there is a one-time fee of 20L to join.

Not so wicked witch…

It seems that I just can’t shake off dressing up for Halloween (lol)! Truth be told I wanted to wear one of my bunned up hairstyles for this picture but then tested out the Little Witch hairstyle from Ayashi at SaNaRae and the rest is history. There was no way I could resist this long and flowing hairstyle from its cute bangs to the well-detailed bows to the jaunty looking hat and I personally think that the style went well with the dress. If vibrant acid green isn’t your style, the Little Witch hair comes with a Hud that lets you choose from red or green shades in various tones. It also lets you customize the hat and bows and also has an option to hide the hat. The SaNaRae group is free to join so head on down to the latest round to pick up your gifts. If you’re still not convinced check out these posts {HERE} and {HERE} which showcase other gifts available for you.

An Ecko.

Last week you might have read one of Kat’s adventures with Ripley centering around the Ecko’s FabFree group gift, if you haven’t it’s {HERE}, and it got me really interested to see the store for myself. My visit reaped a couple of interesting discoveries and one of which is that Ecko is offering the Salor skin as a free subscriber group gift. I always love trying on new skins and this one with its unique tones did not disappoint. The Salor skin package comes in two classic skins with cleavage/no cleavage options as well as a hud for Belleza and an applier for Loud Mouth. There are other subscriber gifts available at the store so sign up and pack your wardrobe with goodies. While you’re there don’t forget to grab your Fabulously Free in SL group gift as well.

Giveaways!

I’ve been testing out different eyes lately and was pleasantly surprised to discover that Dulce Secrets has a giveaway for them. Shown in the picture are the Transcendental Sliver Pink eyes which you can get for free at the main store. The shine and reflection in these eyes are remarkable as is its subtle pink coloring. In the prize package, you will receive classic system eyes as well as mesh ones and an alpha layer. There is no group required to hit the giveaway boards so these beautiful pair of eyes are yours completely free!

And that wraps it up! Have fun in your explorations of Second Life and have a great day!

Shhh! I’m hunting turkeys

Shhh! I'm hunting turkeys

 Hello, dear readers and welcome to another Saturday Feature!

As mentioned by Loki {HERE} there are a number of fun hunts running this month so be ready to spend your cool autumn days scampering across the grid in search for those odds and ends. Being an avid hunter myself, I geared right up and decided that, for starters, I was going to set my sights on one Jerky Turkey. Rumor has it that it’s been shedding feathers and leaving presents in several top quality stores.

While on the trail I stopped by Sevyn East to see if I could get my hands on that Turkey but alas, there was no sign of him. Lucky for me though it left a single orange feather as a clue and even luckier still there was a great present attached. Opening it up I discovered the Fall Dress comes in five standard mesh sizes (XS-XL) for classic avatars and sizes for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink bodies as well. There is an alpha layer included in the package that I found really helpful with the fitting. I simply adore the preppy style of this dress and the little bow on its waistline not only speaks to my girlish side but is also an appreciated well-made detail. Speaking of well-made, the Fall Dress boasts great textures with its tartan collar and skirt and the brown woolen knit of the top is perfect for the fall chill. The outfit comes with a cute Turkey shaped bag too with a pose or no pose option so you don’t have to worry about accessorizing. All you need to do to own the Fall Dress is to hunt out the orange feather located in the Sevyn East main store and buy it for 1L. The Jerky Turkey Hunt is ending at the end of the month so good luck to all those feather collectors out there!

How about some fancy and free footwear?

It’s probably really obvious by now that I love all types of boots and am an enthusiastic shoe collector. The words ‘shoe sale’ inspire so much joy and excitement that I was actually squealing when I discovered that Moda is not only having a big blowout of its Slink only shoes but was offering five free pairs as well. The Abierta Zippered boots that I’m wearing in the picture is one of those free pairs and comes with an extensive hud which enables you to customize the colors on almost every part of the shoe. It’s a shoe addicts dream and unfortunately, like all dreams, it will have to end. The sale is only running for two weeks and at the time of writing this a week or so has passed so hurry, hurry, hurry down.
Shh! I'm hunting turkeys

More goodies!

The size of my shoe collection is rivaled only by the number of skins that I own (only in SL does that sentence not sound very very creepy lol). All you skin fanatics out there should ready yourselves to teleport because 7 Deadly s{K}ins is offering the Dawn skin as an appreciation gift. It’s exactly as its exactly as its name suggests and is fresh-faced look with the subtle makeup that is a hallmark of the 7 Deadly s{K}ins design.  In the package, you will receive the Dawn classic skin in two tones (Marshmellow and Taupe) with cleavage/no cleavage options. There are also Slink hands and feet appliers and TMP Installers available for both tones. If you’re heading down be sure to grab a guy friend as that appreciation gift contains a skin for men as well! Not only is this appreciation gift available for free but you don’t have to be a member of the 7 Deadly s{K}ins group to be able to snap it up. Personally, I do recommend joining the group as a 400L gift card is being given away as a group gift this month, plus members enjoy a good number of perks. If you’re interested the 7 Deadly s{K}ins group costs 150L to join.

To keep that fall feel alive I opted to wear the Pumpkinette hair from Adoness. I don’t own many short hair styles but I fell in love with this wavy one right away. Plus, I’m always such a fan of hair adornments and you don’t get any more unique than seasonal fall fruits. The Pumpkinette hair is available as a group gift for members of the Adoness group but if you’re not currently enrolled never fear as you’ll be able to pick up this hairstyle for 1L. Adoness has a group join up fee of 25 L

As long as we’re on the subject of pumpkins, I’m wearing the aptly named Pumpkin eyes from Demicorn that are available as a free group gift from SaNaRae’s latest round. In the package, you will receive classic eyes as well as mesh ones with an alpha layer to go with. If you want to make that creepy look low key with Halloween being over and all then these eyes are the way to go. For more ‘everyday goth’ ideas check out Pru’s post {HERE} in which she coins the term and shows off more group gifts from SaNaRae.

And that wraps it up! Have a happy and safe weekend everyone! Till next time.

Treats For You Too!

Snapshot_003
Too much Halloween candy again…

Good evening FabFree! I hope that you have enjoyed Halloween🙂 both inworld and in the real world too!  It’s now after 10pm here and all of our trick or treaters have gone in for the night.  As usual I bought way too much candy!  Whatever will I do with it?  I am unable to share it with you unfortunately for my jeans, but I can share some news about a couple of fabulous inworld treats you might like even better!

Inworld Treats:

  • At Lara Hurley you can find the Blaire Catwa Applier I am displaying on my Candy mesh head today as a free group gift!  This group is free to join and the applier comes with light brown and dark brown brows.  This skin would be great as an every day skin or could be worn all glammed up too.  The milky skin tone is lovely and I adore the shimmery plum lips!  I believe it is meant to go on the Dyana mesh head, however I quite like it on Candy, and I am sure it would be nice on others as well.  You just have to try them out!
  • Belle Epoque is participating in a free Halloween Hunt and once you find just the right pumpkin (yes… there are plenty of decoys!) inshop, you can buy it for 0L and you will have the pretty rose crown I am wearing today.  Good luck!  I assume this will be ending soon as it is a Halloween Hunt, so chop chop!

Mix and Match it up

Mix and match it up

Hello, FabFree! Did you know that the group gift from Ollie’s Follies is out?

I don’t know about you but I keep a very, very close eye on the Fabulously Free in SL group gift listing found {HERE}. It is updated on the regular and I don’t want to miss out on even one of the awesome and free gifts put out by our Fab Designers. You can be sure that there was much excitement when I saw the latest addition to the list from Ollie’s Follies as not only did both gifts cater to classic and mesh avatars, they could be used as separates as well.  Pretty sure I left dust bunnies in my wake as I rushed over to get my hands on these new wardrobe staples.

Before we begin, though…

Alright, before I jump in there’s one very important thing that you should do (if you haven’t already) and that is to join the Fabulously Free in SL group. All you have to do is cut and paste the following link into the local chat inworld and click the link;  secondlife:///app/group/020fa7af-444d-f54f-01e2-557ec06315fd/about  The group is free to join and there are no more steps after that. Are you all set? Let’s go!

So that picture on the right.

Since I got too excited and did up two looks for this gift, I’ll be talking about the picture on the left first before moving on to the right.  What you’ll see on the left is the Harlowe Cardi Combo, a snug and beautifully textured long cardigan that comes with the grey tube top. In RL I really do love pieces of clothing with inserts like these as they save time on styling and that fact as not changed in SL. The combination of reds, greys and subtle greens flow well together and bring to mind the coming festive months not to mention the chevron patterns all over the cardigan are deliciously eye-catching.

As I’ve mentioned above, the Harlowe Cardi Combo caters to both classic and mesh avatars. If like me you chose to go with the classic and mesh package you’ll receive the outfit in five fit mesh sizes (XS-XL) as well as sizes for Belleza, Maitreya, Slink Physique and Slink Hourglass. In the package, you’ll also receive an alpha layer for easier fitting. On the flip side, should you chose the package only for classic avatars you will receive the outfit in five standard sizes (XS-XL) and an alpha layer for the fitting.

I’ve paired up the Harlowe Cardi Combo with the Urban Denim Skirt from [QE] Designs that you can get for just 25L by hunting cute little ghosties at the Spookzilla event. The skirt comes in five standard sizes (XXS-L) and sizes for the Maitreya, Slink Physique, and Slink Hourglass bodies. You’ll get a spiffy alpha layer in the package as well. As a fan of denim, this skirt was a must have for me and the artful blood splatters simply sealed the deal.

The footwear pictured on the right is the free gift from Black Arts that is currently out for free at the Trick of Treat Lane event. The Halloween edition of the Gothic Lolita shoes is simply to die for and I just adore the details on of the skull and buckles. Mesh feet are not a requirement as the shoes come with a shoe base and an alpha layer. The Trick or Treat Lane event ends on the first of November.

Remember the Hocus Pocus event that I talked about in my post {HERE}? Well, I hit more of the participating stores and got lucky! The Mariska hairstyle that is pictured on the right is from KoKoLoReS and could be available for free to you with a little luck and magic on your side. This sweeping updo comes with a hud with six different color combinations and a tintable hairbase. If the magic is a little lacking on your try you can simply purchase the hairstyle for 50L.

Now to the left!

The high waisted trend is something that I follow pretty closely so I was pleased when I saw the other part of the free group gift from Ollie’s Follies. As with the Harlowe Cardi Combo, these Huez leggings cater to both classic and mesh bodies as well. I opted to get just the classic package which contains five standard mesh sizes (XS-XL) and an alpha layer, which is the one pictured. On the other hand, the package for both classic and mesh avatars include five fit mesh sizes (XS-XL) and sizes for the Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink mesh bodies. You’ll also receive an alpha layer for the fitting. I am just in love with the unique silver color of the Huez leggings and will definitely be wearing more of it as end of the year festivities draw closer.

Paired up with the Huez leggings is the Skelly swimsuit in Ultraviolet from Alaskametro that you can get for 25 L at the Spookzilla hunt. The Skelly swimsuit comes in classic clothing layers as well as appliers for TMP, Slink and mesh bodies that use the Omega system. Hunt around the Spookzilla sim for five other prizes from Alaskametro and you may be able to find the Skelly swimsuit in two other colors as well as makeup and nail polish. I’ve heard about Alaskametro through posts from Astrid so now’s my chance to try products from this merchant out!

Footwear in the picture on the left is also available in at the Spookzilla hunt. If you catch the ghostie carrying the Hunter boots, you’ll be able to get these amazing pair for 25L. The Hunter boots are a fit for classic avatars or those with mesh feet as the package includes one pair in unrigged mesh, pairs in five standard mesh sizes (XXS-L) and fits for TMP, Maitreya, Slink Physique and Slink Hourglass. And to top it off there’s a hud included so that you can fiddle around with the look of your new boots.

The hair I’m wearing in this picture is from Love and is also for the Hocus Pocus event. The luck and the right amount of magic you’ll be able to win this beautifully messy hairstyle that comes in a fatpack of colors. Just creep up near the bottle containing the prize and say hocus pocus in main chat to be eligible for the game. Don’t forget the game is case sensitive and you should use small letters. You’ll be able to play once per 24 hours though if you don’t want to wait you can purchase the hair for 50L. The Hocus Pocus event runs until the 4th of November.

The final stretch!

Not only can you find clothing and footwear at Spookzilla, there are skins to be had as well. The hunt and event are hosted by Toxxic Rhiannyr of Alterego and Enertia so the beautiful skins that you can find in several of the ghosties are from Alterego. Being a skin junkie I love trying out new skins and was very very happy with these beautiful top quality finds. The texture of these skins are super smooth and I just love the dark makeup on them. There’s also something a little different about the ghosties carrying gifts from Alterego and Enertia. If you’re a group member they will yield their gifts for free. Just be sure to wear your group tag while hunting and at the time of me writing this, group is free to join. If you’re not in the group each ghostie will cost 25L

Featured on the right is the Rayne skin in the Pearle tone. The package includes three classic skin with makeup and eyebrow/eyebrowless options. You will also receive Loudmouth and Omega head appliers as well as two shapes. In the picture on the right, I’m also sporting two more hunt prizes from Spookzilla. The pastel goth horns in cream are brought to you by D-Style and the mouth chain by !nfinity. I just love it when I find accessories to compliment an outfit don’t you?

On the left is the is the Runa skin in Petale tone. The package includes three class skin with make and eyebrow/eyebrowless options. As with the Rayne skin package, you will receive Loudmouth and Omega head appliers as well as two shapes. I’m sporting the Skull septum piercing from !nfinity (there are two other septum piercings available in the package as well) and in both pictures I’m wearing the Redrum eyes from !nfinity which includes system eyes, mesh eyes with alpha layer and huds for Catwa heads and mesh heads using the Omega system.

The Spookzilla event is running until the 31st and while I know it’s a bit of a squeeze, as you can see from all the prizes to be had it’s well worth it! Happy Hunting ghosties and happy shopping!

Addendum: In my post Step inside and come closer  I failed to mention that the Thea Outfit comes in one fit mesh size for both the skirt and sweate (so all you avatars with mesh bodies can try it out!) I’d like to extend my apologies to Delriada Delwood for the oversight and to thank her for pointing this out to me and for her generous gift to FabFree.
