Warm Holidays

Happy Thanksgiving, FabFree-ers! I hope all of y’all who celebrate had a great day full of friends, family and fantastic food!

Warm Holidays

After a little nap to work off that turkey, I took to the Grid for a little hunting. Our Fall hunts are winding down but there’s still a few days to grab up al the awesome prizes out there. I re-visited the Warm Socks Hunt 2 today to pickup this cute casual knit dress from Vertigo. This is ‘Yosa’ and it can become a very versatile part of your wardrobe for FREE. Not only does it come a bunch of preset colors on the HUD but it also comes with a color picker. You can literally make this dress any color you want!

That’s how I got the dress to perfectly match my new ‘Fur Top Snow Boots’ from Duh! I grabbed these cute boots for FREE too with my Second Life Frees & Offers group tag. The gift comes with the pink ones here and a purple set as well.

Warm Holidays

Topping off my new look is one of two new Group Gifts from no.match. This is ‘no.country’ a nice long casual unisex style. It comes with both a men’s and a women’s version in the gift. Usually the group gifts have a special five color HUD but no.country comes as a full fat pack!

Warm Holidays

The Warm Socks Hunt 2 runs until November 30th so you have a couple of days left to get your Hunt on. However, the SLF&O items can come and come pretty quickly. So, if you need these boots hurry over to Duh! and grab them.

Happy Thanksgiving’s Eve!

whc noname blue hoodie 2_001

First, a word to any turkeys who might happen upon this post… RUN! With that out of the way, happy Wednesday everyone! We are to the end of the month and the holiday season is in full swing. I know at the Fab Free office party we will be giving thanks both in the traditional sense of the holiday and thanks to our readers who are always the reason we do what we do. It really matters that you choose to read us; and, I know we are all very proud that you do. Today’s post will be shorter than usual, since there are preparations to be made so tomorrow I can take my rightful place in the kitchen: tallest man at the kids’ table. Heaven knows how old I will be when I finally graduate to the adult’s table.

This week in my travels, I had a lucky chair win! I don’t often win on chairs but over at NoName luck was with me, and the letter “W” came up while I was shopping. The prize was this sharp-looking dark blue hoodie which comes with two variations in the box. The version of the Tyler Hoodie I chose for the picture has light blue trim and arms, but also in the box is a hoodie without the lighter tones. This is a great looking FREE hoodie either way! Each version comes in five sizes for a good fit. I am very happy with this find! The prizes in the two lucky chairs at NoName rotate. So, in order to get this particular prize, patience or a great deal of luck will be required. However, it is a very good store and whatever you score on the chairs will likely be a keeper.

Although we will be doing a special Fab Free round-up of FREE skins December First, I couldn’t resist showing you this skin since it is a prize from a hunt that ends this month. This is the STORM skin in Taupe w/o hairbase from 7 Deadly s{K}ins and is offered FREE as a hunt prize in the Dirty Turkey Hunt! Pictured on the left, the gift includes this skin in two tones, each of which comes with and without hairbase variations. As always, with 7 Deadly s{K}ins this is excellent work, a very real-looking skin good enough for a picky old resident like me as well as being a must pick-up for new male residents who are looking to shed that freshly hatched look that none of us covet.

On the right side of the above picture I am wearing a tattoo layer in addition to this wonderful skin. Setting a new Fab Free record for least amount of notice given to people to pick up something nice…WHC Riler for telling you there is a fantastically useful Bitter Sweet Hunt prize over at L’Anguisette but the hunt ends tonight! The prize is a unisex set of four tattoo layers that apply realistic facial freckles to whatever skin you choose to wear. You might not use them now but things like this are great to keep around since they can combine with skins you might like in the future to give you just the right look you are searching for. For only 2L this hunt prize is a bargain and the hunt object you are looking for is shaped like a skull. With free skin day approaching this is a great pick up for your inventories in my opinion! Maybe with luck L’Anguisette, might forget to remove the hunt prize a few more days. I will cross my fingers and pop in my sad puppydog eyes when I talk to them.

That’s all for now, keep an eye out for the special skin posts coming up on the beginning of December. From our family at Fab Free to all of you, thank you for all the support and attention you give to us. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving, and I will see you on the grid.—–WHC Riler

Hello FabFree-ers. I’ve got a quick one for you today.


Today is all about basics. Skin and hair… without it you’d look really odd… or yeah… never mind. ANYWAY, one of my absolute favorite shops, Lumae has put out a brand new Group Gift for us. This is Jewel Cocoa and I think she is perfect for Fall. The pretty mat lip color will go with all of my Autumn wardrobe. Jewel comes with all eight skin tones and includes a ton of appliers: Lelutka, Genesis Lab, TMP, SLink Visage, Omega AND Loud Mouth, Nyam Nyam, Sweet Lips and Kissers. And if that wasn’t enough, the gift also comes with system tattoos for brows, freckles, cleavage and lashes. Plus, Lumae’s group is FREE to join. One quick note… in the picture I’m also wearing the freckles tattoo layer but the skin comes in a clear tone.

On top, I’ve got one of two latest group gifts from no.match. This is no.fun. Which I think is actually all kinds of fun. The short sassy style comes with a HUD with five colors and a resize script. No.match’s group has a small 50L fee join but by the time you pick up all the gifts available you have earned that back easy peasy.

Wistfully Reflecting Upon My Salad Days…

Anims rising salad 1_001

Oh, my reckless SL youth! Those crazy days when I once wore a costume very much like this and danced on a pole at a club. It was a very odd time, but even back then I was very “Me”. In particular, I recall some rather dubious emoting capped with my all time favorite self observation. Shouting “Hey look, I’m a salad!” to the audience, my sexiness knew no bounds in those early days…

I am still having great fun unpacking prizes from The Spooky Nights Hunt, Presented By Firestorm. Animations Rising has put out an amazing FREE gift for the hunt, one too big for me to adequately describe. In fact, it took days for me to unpack it! It includes 55 male outfits from both the Rising Tribal and Rising Silks series and another 24 female ensembles. They seem to be pre-Mesh but they are bursting with extras and special effects particle sets, which could be especially useful when putting together your own costume and role-play outfits. The Rising Tribal – Gaius II – outfit is a tribute to the Greek Mother Goddess. The vines and leaves that wrap around the body are objects to wear rather than simply clothing layers. This means there is depth to them as opposed to looking inked or painted on. The dark green modesty pouch is very sexy but it does not conceal a great deal of you so carrying a large green houseplant or two might be useful to help keep covered up on sims that frown on something this revealing. This is outrageous clothing, so do me proud and if you wear it, try extra hard to make it memorable for everyone around you. My bet is that will be a task easily accomplished!

animations rising youth 2_001

The Youth is another FREE gift included in Animations Rising‘s Spooky Nights Hunt Prize. It is the epitome of simplicity, consisting of an excellent loincloth, a wrist band and a leg band. Inspired by and featuring indigenous influences, there are an additional 7 outfits from the Rising Tribal series included in this enormous prize. For the pic above, I appropriated the spear from the warrior costume. First of all, I needed a weapon to give me that menacing look. Secondly, I wanted to point to the big white feathers adorning it and shout “Biggest…chicken…ever!”

The picture above also features the face paint from Fallen Gods Inc. It is another excellent FREE hunt item from The Spooky Nights Hunt and comes in four color schemes: Toxic, Magic, Flames and Doom. I chose to wear Doom with The Youth because it is dark and ashy, giving me a more primal and menacing look. This is an excellent pick up because it is a perfect finishing touch for a costume. Whether you intend to go out clubbing or prefer to role play, it will probably be a useful addition to your wardrobe.

whc solar 5_001

This final pic is of a silk outfit called Rising Silks – Solar , yet another prize from the Animations Rising massive FREE Spooky Nights Hunt Gift. Quite a few sexy male silks are included and some of them, such as “Solar”, include amazing particle light shows which are customizable and can be turned off if you prefer. You have to love a creator who says “In short, Rising Silks are designed to be SEXY, and that means, to ride very low on the hips, and cover as little as possible, while still being elegant and masculine.” This is some seriously creative stuff, and in this gift you will find an incredible variety of useful items.

This concludes my weekly chance to try to get away with showing as much skin as possible. If you haven’t started hunting yet, The Spooky Nights Hunt, Presented By Firestorm is a wonderful way to begin. The hunt object you are looking for is a skull, and Animations Rising is store number 16 on the Wicked path. Fallen Gods Inc. is store number 1 on the Bones path. With the holiday season in progress now, this is the time to pick up some fantastic freebies hunting. Take care and see you on the grid!—–WHC Riler

Mixin’ & Matchin’

Greetings once again Fabulous Folks.

Mixy Matchy

I am so loving all the Fall related hunts going on right now. I can hardly choose everything I want to show off! So today’s look is a nice mix match of three different hunts that came together soooo nicely.  First are my FREE cardigan and socks from The Cheeky Parrot Boutique in the Warm Socks Hunt. This cozy set comes with the cardigan sweater and the thigh high stockings with the attached shoes.  happily, I had some cute things to complete the outfit in my over stuffed Inventory.

Next is this great bag from Illi. The ‘Hunt Handbag’ is the prize for the 1L “Touch But Don’t Bite My Pumpkin Hunt” which features one of the most disturbing pumpkins I’ve ever seen on their website…. O.O

And ‘last’ is my gorgeous necklace called “The Last Rose” from IT! for the Leaves are Falling 1L Hunt. The beautifully detailed rose comes in four metals to choose from. IT – Indulge Temptation! has been designing several items lately that will match “Last Rose” perfectly… so take a quick look around the store while you’re there.

Mixy Matchy

All three of these Hunts run until November 30th… which is sneaking up on us… so hurry out there and get your Hunt on!
