Perfect Fall Day

Hey there, FabFree-ers. I hope you’re having a perfect Fall day too!  Well, to be honest, it’s still really cold and rainy here in the RL but that why you gotta love SL, right?

Perfectly Comfortable and Pretty, Too!

Don’t you love this top and culottes outfit? I found a fantastic new-to-me designer yesterday in my wanders. (Yes, I’m still looking for Gabriel, that slacker!) This is the Angola Knit Tunic from Amiable and it’s the Halloween Gift for the Group. The tunic comes in a soft buttery yellow as well as the sweet pumpkin orange. And you get both in the gift! And here’s the kicker… the Group is FREE to join.

Coffee and Punkin

Coffee and Punkin

I think it’s the rain. It’s raining and really cold here in the RL and I have no motivation.  Maybe some caffeine will help…

Or Maybe A LBD that’s Super cute

I can always count on Hunts and cute stuff to put me in a better mood. This is Kawaii Dolls ‘Punkin’ dress from Sasheba’s Closet and it’s the 1L prize for the Psycho Pumpkin Hunt. Punkin comes with HUDs for six different sweater types and eight different faux fur fringes. While Punkin is a dress… it’s very sassy short so I think it could be a great tunic top too! While you’re looking for that little frosted cupcake, check out the other Hunts going on at Sasheba’s Closet.

Once Upon a Midnight Dreary

Nevermore

Hello Fabulouses!  Since Ripley and I found some fantastic hunt prizes lately, we decided to hit the trail once again.  This time, we set out along the Quoth the Raven Hunt path.  Over at Little 2 Large, we discovered this fabulous gown, and it only cost 1 little Linden dollar, plus a bit of searching time.  On the wall of the shop, you’ll find a hunt poster, which contains a helpful hint in case you get stuck.

With Many a Flirt and Flutter, In There Stepped a Stately Raven

The stately raven over at Little 2 Large actually brought *more* than just the gown in my picture.  In addition to a splendid frock, you’ll also receive male and female Dinkies outfits (Dinkies are these absolutely adorable mesh kitty avatars that you may have seen around the grid), a coordinating Nevermore men’s suit, and a petite Nevermore mini dress.  The additional prizes are no transfer, but if your man happens to come along with you on the hunt, for just 1 more Linden dollar, you can look all matchy-matchy.  As you can see from my picture, the gown starts out black at the bodice, but transitions into a soft gray texture, which reminded me of watercolors.  I really love the intricate black lace that adorns the sexy, full length slits in the skirt as well as the generous hemline.  The “sleeves” on the bodice resemble black feathers, and the package also included shoulder feathers that I opted not to wear.  For just a dollar, this fabulous hunt prize will have you all set up for formal fall parties, whether you have a classic or a mesh body avatar.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fitmesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layer)
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Physique

Ripley has taken to growling at that beguiling Raven, for that bird (to quote from Poe himself):

“…never flitting, still is sitting, STILL is sitting…

just above my chamber door…”

I’d better see if I can help the pupster escape unharmed from “The Raven.”  Until next time, happy hunting!

The Boo Bunny Cast a Spell on Me

My Favorite Color is October

Hello Fab Free!  Ripley and I are wrapping up a week of vacation, but before we head back to our normal routine, I wanted to share with you one of our discoveries from the Boo Bunny Hunt.  It cost just one Linden dollar and includes both my cropped top and curve hugging pants.  One thing I love about this find is the fact that it is covered with a printed design that fits right in with the witchcrafty-season we are in, but is subtle enough so this is an outfit you will be able to wear well past Halloween.

Magical Runes

Over at the Indigenous Designs shop, the pupster and I discovered the hunt object, a piece of Halloween candy, after just a short time spent searching.  After opening the package, I was delighted to discover details such as the unfastened buckle on the top, and the generous cut of the sleeves and lower cuffs on the pants.  One of my favorite hues to wear in RL is this deep shade of forest green, but it can often be too dark without additional pops of color.  The gold tones in the printed design on the Devil’s Runes Outfit provided just the right amount of contrast and seasonal flair.  Long pants, full length sleeves, and a half turtle neck collar ensure you’ll stay cozy on brisk autumn days, while the short hem of the top allows for a cheeky glimpse of skin.  With versions for classic as well as mesh avatars, there’s something in this hunt prize for everyone.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, and L (includes separate alpha layers for pants and top)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • EBody
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

Although we enjoyed our fall break vacation, Ripley and I missed you all, and are looking forward to sharing more Fabulous Finds with our favorite readers.  Until our next post, happy hunting!

Seasonal

Seasonal

So, Readers,  I didn’t make it back to the beach. But I did find a more ‘seasonal’ place to hang out for a bit. Nothing like shirking work in an Autumnal SIM.  Of course… it is haunted. But nothing’s perfect.

Making the Summit

I did run across a great Hunt while avoiding Juli. The Psycho Pumpkin Hunt from Gossip!Hunts is a 1L hunt with Female, Male and Unisex prizes running until October 27th. I picked up this shirt, ‘Summit’,  from Horr Men’s Wear as their Hunt prize. Just look for the black and orange frosted cupcake and it’s yours.

Sizes Included

  • Adam
  • Aesthetic
  • David
  • Gianni
  • Jake
  • SLink
  • Standard Mesh XS – XL
  • TMP

 

Maybe I can find a few more Hunts before Juli tracks me down.

Cheers,
Gabriel St.James

The Crows Know

Now that I’ve embraced the Halloween spirit, I keep finding new fun things to show y’all! I guess that’s a good problem to have!

Going Batty

This is the latest Group Gift from Chaotic : “Kane”. I love the sweet flirty skirt with all the bats fluttering around. I admit, I love bats in real life so I knew I was going to grab this dress right up. Chaotic’s group is free to join and you’ll find tons of great items in store.

My Little friends

I also found some new feathery friends. This is one of four poses in EniiPoses Halloween Special pack. The set comes with the crows and a tall candle (not shown here) all for 15 Lindens.  The special has been up for a bit and may come down any day. So if you want a great spooky pose and a few new friends hurry over.

25Linden Tuesday…

… is one of my favorite days just for the gorgeous items like this dress. This is ‘Carita’ from Eveline in the Box. I love the beautiful fabric and pattern. And, wow, it is so well made. The texture just pops! You will find Carita in four lovely colors each for 25 little Lindens. Don’t wait because like the fairy tale… it will disappear at the stroke of midnight.

We’re Spending Fall Break at the Beach

Day One of Fall Break

Hello Fabulouses!  I’m popping in tonight with a quick post which is rather time sensitive.  The adorable micro skirt and tied top I’m wearing in my photo are only up for grabs for a special price until tomorrow.  Anny’s Fashion is offering this cute set as their Syndicate Sunday offering for this week, but if you like it, you’ll have to quickly scamper over to the shop because the event only continues through October 9th.

I Know Fall’s Here, But…. Beaches in SL….

I’m as much into the Halloween season as the rest of the Fab bloggers, but Ripley has been pestering me to take him to the beach so he can indulge in playing hide and seek with seagulls, and a girl has to have a sweet skimpy outfit for the sand and surf, am I right?  The best part of SL is being able to visit a chilly autumn sim one moment, and then -poof- teleporting to a summer oasis the next.  For just 60 Linden dollars, Anny’s Fashion had me all set for a lazy day soaking up the sun in my new Loren outfit.   It features a sassy micro skirt (you’ll need panties under this one for sure) and a knotted cropped top.  The generous designer tucked a texture change HUD packed with 20 options for the skirt and 25 for the top inside the box, so you will be able to create quite a variety of looks with just this one purchase.  With both classic and mesh body versions, I’m sure you’ll find the right fit for your avatar.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XXS, SS, S, M, and L (includes alpha layer)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

Well, there’s a pelican here giving me the stink eye, so I think maybe Rip overstepped his boundaries.  The gulls are up for a game, but pelicans can be a bit grumpy.  I’d better collect the rascal and head on home.  Until next time, happy shopping!

FabFree Poll Response!

Hi there Fabulouses! First of all, I wanted to thank all of you that participted in the poll we posted recently about the possibility of adding additional Second Life related content to our FabFree Blog.  We are pleased that so many of you took the time to have your say!

As you can see I have a snapshot of the results below.  While “No, stick to the free and under 75L stuff.” answer was the winner, it won only with 50% of the response and results were fairly mixed. “Yes, that sounds like a cool addition.” at 38% and “I don’t mind either way.” at 12%.

With this in mind, we have decided that perhaps an occasional addition of other Second Life related content might be fun for us to share and fun for you to read, but only providing the news is either free or under 75L to participate in or enjoy.  New things you might hear about on our blog are events, locations, adventures and other Second Life related news.

If you have any questions, please contact Love Trill inworld or leave a comment on this post.  Thanks!
