Home From Work

Home From Work

When I saw that there was a hunt dedicated to work, working, and various jobs, I was really thrilled on a number of levels. I know that often there are contests in Second Life where you dress up to fit various themes of employment, but also I felt that this was a great opportunity for Second Life designers to show solidarity for unsung heroes. I was not disappointed. The hunt was full of wonderful things to celebrate jobs of all walks of life.

In the end, I decided to showcase this 1L nurse’s uniform from Blade & Rain. It is a one-piece mesh outfit that comes in all the standard sizes and includes a good alpha layer. What I appreciate most about it, is that it’s “real” nursing wear instead of the “sexy nurse” outfits you usually see. I really admire those who are hard at work in the medical field and it’s nice to have this option available for contests, cosplay, or what-have-you and for only 1L this is a great opportunity to pick up a great working outfit.

The Hi Ho, Hi Ho, It’s Off to Work I Go Hunt ends on Sept 16, so be sure to get out there and hunt down the goodies before it’s over!

Games

Good Morning, FabFree Readers.

Games

Most of the Hunts on the grid are winding down with today being the last day of August. But a few are starting up now, such as the Games of Thrones Hunt in Westeros. This hunt is slightly different in that there are multiple prizes in multiple hunt objects. One hunt object is at the designers main shop while the other prizes are scattered around a central “fair”.  I was able to find this men’s denim jacket with attached hoodie and shirt from “It’s Gau!” at the main fair area for 1L. This is “Jeans Jacket” and it comes in the standard mesh sizes XS-XL and has a good alpha layer. Be sure to pick up the note card that is offered when you land at the fair. It has all the pictures and clues for the Hunt prizes.

The Game of Thrones Hunt in Westeros runs until September 7th.

I remain most sincerely yours,
Gabe's Signiture

Nothing wrong

Good evening, FabFree!

Nothing Wrong

I know I’m running kinda late today but I needed to show off my new party dress from ‘This is Wrong’.  And believe me, there is nothing wrong at all with this wonderful free gift. The Party Dress comes in two versions, one with the violet edge I’m showing and one with a lovely blue edge. The dress comes in FitMesh sizes XS-XL. It doesn’t come with an alpha layer but it was easy to find one that helped in my inventory. The Party Dress is a free gift for everyone no group needed but I encourage you to join the group and pick up the other past gifts available. The group is free to join too.

As with all gifts from our generous designers, this one may have a limited time so hurry over and pick it up.

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!

Urban

Greetings FabFree Readers.
urban

Welcome to the weekend at last. Time to get into something more casual and go explore our virtual world. I found this stylish outfit for free at Prism for Men as the August Group Gift. This is the ‘Jeremy’ jacket, shirt and pants set. The jacket and shirt are one piece while the dark jeans are separate. The jeans come in the standard Mesh sizes XS-L and the jacket/shirt is sized at S-L with two FitMesh versions. Along with two alpha layers versions, everyone should be able to find their proper fit. I found this outfit to be perfect for wandering our more urban corners of the Grid.

August is nearly finished so hurry to Prism for Men and pick up your free group gift soon.
I remain most sincerely yours,
Gabe's Signiture

Make Me

Make Me

I’m feeling lazy this morning so I stayed in for a soak. Luckily I have the perfect hunt if you don’t feel like teleporting around to different shops. Have you tried the Marketplace Hunt yet? I found this gorgeous bodysuit from Alpha Female that I had to share with you. It’s called “Make Me” and after putting it on, you certainly can’t make me take it off this morning😉

A little hunting on the marketplace and 5L is all this bodysuit will cost you. You’ll get a system layer as well as appliers for Maitreya, Belleza, and Slink mesh bodies. It’s a well made outfit in black and gold for a classic look.

Be sure to hurry, this hunt ends tomorrow, August 28th!

End of Summer

Hello FabFree!

End of Summer

Summer is winding down now but the days are still hot and I don’t want to wear anything but cool shorts and tops. But you still want to start wearing those soft rustic shades of Fall. That’s why the “Indian Summer” hunt from Ghee is the perfect answer. Ms. Love mentioned this hunt in her post here so I had to go check it out. And I was not disappointed.  You’ll find thirty nine little spice jars hidden all over priced at 10L to 25L.  Now the jars are not numbered but each one is named for a different spice so we can keep track of them. You’ll find tops, dresses, shoes, shorts, jewelry and accessories all in one of three end-of-summer shades.

I picked the “lace trim belted shorts” in ivory and paired them with the ‘Indian Summer blouse’ in taupe and the ‘Indian Summer’ sandals in ivory. The “Swirl” necklace and earrings also come in ivory, taupe and chilli ( a soft rusty red)

The clothing pieces come in the standard mesh sizes XXS-L and several pieces come with appliers for Belleza, Maitreya and SLink. The sandals all are for SLink flat feet.

You can fill up your spice cabinet and your wardrobe at the Indian Summer Hunt until September 2nd!
