Infected Zombie Hunter

Infected Zombie HunterI found my Halloween costume, and just in time too! It seems like zombies and zombie hunters are everywhere this year, and for good reason. Like the vampires of years past, zombies have taken over television and movies in a big way. That said, when I saw this wicked bloody tank top from COCO, my mind instantly went to zombie land. Thankfully, Second Life is awash with creativity, and I was able to find most of what I needed to put this look together without letting go of too many lindens.

I mentioned the tank top as the centerpiece that inspired this “Infected Zombie Hunter” look. It’s one of several FREE group gifts available at COCO. Before I go into detail about the top, when going to the COCO store to add this to your wardrobe, be mindful of which section you’re shopping in. The COCO store is huge, and there are sections dedicated to their doll avatars as well as regular avatars. You’ll find a version of this top in both sections, so don’t get fooled like I did. Make sure you’re in the section with ladies clothing and not doll clothes. LOL That little bit of information out of the way, once you’re in the right place you’ll find a full wall of group gifts with a group joiner near by. The COCO group is FREE to join. Once you’re wearing your COCO group tag, all the gifts are FREE as well, just click the vendors. This bloody tank top gift is fully mesh, and comes in several body fit sizes, and standard mesh sizes.Infected Zombie Hunter CloseAnyone who knows me knows it would be completely out of character for me to go all gore and no glam, even on Halloween. I needed to be a little bloody but still wanted to keep it pretty, Izzie’s had just the thing. These bloody eyes and lips are from an applier package I found by Izzie’s for FREE on the Marketplace. The listing says it’s a limited time Halloween gift, so I’d imagine after today (Oct. 31st) the price will go up. These delicate blood drips can be applied either to the eyes, the lips, or both in 3 shades of red. This FREE set includes appliers for as well as classic system layers. I’m really thrilled with the end result, so don’t miss out on this fun bit of gore by Izzie’s while you can still get it at this fantastic freebie.

Speaking of the Marketplace, I also stumbled across this set of bloody eyes by Inkheart. These mesh eyes were just too perfect to pass up, especially since they are just 1 linden. These “vampire” eyes come in 3 mesh sizes, along with matching system layers. I think they would be spook-tacular with any ghoulish costume!

Continuing on with the idea of being glamorous at all times, this manicure from ZOZ was the perfect finishing touch. Who says a Zombie Hunter can’t have perfectly polished claws?! This particular shade of glossy red is part of the Fab Free exclusive group gift at ZOZ. Just wear your Fab Free tag and click the vendor on the circulation desk at the ZOZ main store, and you’ll be sent your FREE gift. The set has also been featured in one of Katherine’s beautiful posts, and of course in the Fab Free Group Gift Listing by Love.  The Fab Free Group Gift List shows the full set of fall colors that are included in this gorgeous nail polish gift.

Never Too Tired

Never Too Tired

The Men Only Hunt has proven lucrative this month, with lots of amazing gifts for us menfolk to fill out our inventories. I opted for a new hairstyle today, which I picked up from Speakeasy. This FREE gift, is courtesy of the creator as part of the hunt. Just search for the beer and buy it for 0L. It includes two side-swept mesh styles, and huds for a full fatpack of colors. It’s well worth hunting down.

I’m never too tired for a good deal, so I also swung by It’s Gau and picked up the FREE men’s group gift from the back of the store. Join the group FREE and this tattoo you see me wearing is yours FREE. It comes in a system layer as well as appliers for TMP and Signature mesh bodies.

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.

Blowin’ in the Wind

Blowin' in the Wind
As the breeze tousled my Haruka hair from Argrace and Ripley playfully pounced on some tumbling leaves, I paused, savoring the stormy atmosphere. I snapped this picture and thought back to earlier in the day.  While I was sipping my morning coffee, Ripley had clambered up on my lap and given me *that look*.  As he hung half-on and half-off my lap (silly dog, he still thinks he can fit!), he nosed the group notice from Damoour on my screen.  Sure enough, his instincts led us to another Fabulous Find to share with our wonderful readers.  When we arrived at Damoour, we noticed that there are actually four gifts set out.  The group costs 20L to join, but just this skirt alone is worth the joining fee.

Today, I sported Valerie, a sweet mini skirt with a jaunty chain belt and racy circle cut outs in the side.  I paired the skirt with Christi, a strappy top from Cartiera Designs, which has a color-change HUD jam-packed with 28 hues.  Gladiator boots from Ben’s Boutique (also color-change) and Kosh’s Multiplex pendant rounded out my outfit.  A Marketplace dollarbie first blogged here by Calleja Fairey, this necklace includes an easy-to-use menu that enables you to personalize the initials on the center bead and alter the texture of the cord to coordinate with your outfit.  The dark, edgy feel of my look cried out for a tattoo, and I found this simple Tribal Arm Band from JT Tattoo on The Marketplace for only 10L.  It has appliers for mesh bodies and also can be added on the tattoo layer of classic avatars.

With mission “Fabulous Find” accomplished, Ripley and I journeyed over to the rural Kekeland sim for a late-afternoon stroll on its winding gravel road.  I had to distract him from attempting to herd a rogue flock of sheep on our path, but he happily diverted his attention to some leaves dancing in the wind.  Soon after I captured this photo, the spattering of raindrops forced us to return home before we got caught in a downpour.

I hope you found something in today’s post to inspire you to create your own Fabulous Find.  Until next Sunday, happy shopping!

~ Kat (and Ripley)

Black is My Favorite Color

Black is My Favorite ColorHello Fab Free’rs! I hope you’re having a great week so far. I got back Monday evening from a long weekend visiting family, and as much as I loved seeing everyone, I’m still bushed! lol Thankfully I was able to steal a little time to myself today and share with all the Fabulous Readers some great freebie finds. Bargain hunting always makes me feel better!

Starting from top to bottom, this cute chin-length bob hairstyle with bangs is a FREE group gift at YumYum. Technically it was the May 2016 gift, but it’s still available and still adorable. This gift includes a color-change hud with 3 options. All 3 colors have this same dark-blonde/light-brown base color with a blue, purple (shown), or pink color dye at the ends. The hud also allows you to resize the hair to best fit your head shape. The YumYum store group is FREE to join as well! I’d run over to YumYum and pick this one up while it’s still available.

Next, I felt like this FREE dress by Apple May Designs at The Free Dove was a great transition piece for the changing season. It is short and cute like a summer dress, with half sleeves and a pretty textured black material perfect for fall. Not to mention, I think this casual black dress could be easily dressed up or down, and worn with just about any shoe style you wanted. You’ll find this dress strait back on the wall at Free Dove. The dress comes n standard mesh sizes with a matching alpha.

Finally, this bold mandala style leg tattoo is a FREE group gift at Reckless. There are actually several FREE group gifts at Reckless currently, but I liked how this one looked with the AMD dress the best. This beautiful tattoo comes with an applier hud that works for Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza bodies, a second hud for TMP bodies, and classic system layers. There’s also an option for fresh or faded versions of the tattoo. The Reckless group is 100 lindens to join, making this detailed tattoo a steal! Don’t forget to check out the other gifts while you’re there!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Your Friday Hunt Report

openhighwayhuntGood Morning Fabulous Fans! The end of summer isn’t far off, but there’s still time to participate in some super hunts.

Too tired to actually run around in Second Life? You might want to try the Marketplace Hunt. It takes place entirely on the Marketplace. You just have to look through each online store to find the item that’s only L$5. With 44 stops, that’s a lot of very reasonable shopping.

I love road trip movies, so I’m planning to go out on the Open Highway Hunt. It’s a tiny little hunt with only nine stops, so it should only take about an hour.

If those don’t get you excited, there are plenty of other hunts to choose from. Click the hunt names below until you find the one that’s just right for you.

You say you’re new to hunting? Need help learning the ropes?
Both FabFree and HUNT SL have pages full of tips to help you get going. I recommend them to novice and veteran hunters alike.

Your Friday Hunt Report

WS-Hunt-Logo-Aug-16There are some nifty sim and store hunts going on right now. The Botanica Butterfly Hunt just began a couple of days ago and it’s always fun to run around Botanica. I’m told that this hunt is also educational.

My partner and I have been working on the massive Around The Grid in 80 Days hunt. With 146 stores, it’s going to take us a few days to complete, but we have until the end of September, so we should make it.

Speaking of big hunts, you’ll want to get an early start on the Womenstuff Hunt. It has 150 stops, so bring some friends and bring some lunch, because this one is going to take you a while.

Not seeing the perfect hunt for you? Check out the big boodle of hunts that are coming in the next couple of months!

Get Leid HuntGood Morning Fabulous Fans! We’re seeing lots more sim and store hunts crop up lately. Not only are these hunts fun and rewarding, but you can usually knock them out in a very short time, often less than an hour. Halloween (well October in general) is a big big time for store hunts so there will be lots more of these cropping up in six weeks or so.

There are all sorts of hunts to choose from on these “hot August nights.” Just click the hunt names below and you can find out all about them. I’m sure you can find one that’s just the ticket for your sense of style.

Your Friday Hunt Report

WS-Hunt-Logo-Aug-16There are lots of summer hunts going on right now, so if  you’re trying to beat the heat… just stay indoors with the AC cranked up and run around in Second Life! Really… you’ll sweat hardly at all.

If you’re a woman, you’ll want to take a run at the Womenstuff Hunt. This hunt is one of the best, so go grab all the women’s clothing and accessories before they’re gone. There are 150 stores so it may take you a couple of days to finish.

I haven’t checked it out yet, but the Carnival Of Souls Hunt seems very popular. A bit of the macabre as we all gear up for Halloween.
