Falling Stars

Falling Stars Hello and Happy Hump Day Fab Free! I have a quick post for you today featuring FREE jewelry from Graffitiwear and a dollarbie manicure by Sparkle Bunny. So let’s get right to it. I really like this jewelry set from Graffitiwear, especially the idea of falling stars. There are so many happy things my mind associates with falling stars that I couldn’t help wanting this set. I also think the jewelry looks very unique. To get this FREE necklace and earring set from Graffitiwear all you need to do is join their subscriber group. This manicure from Sparkle Bunny is such a perfect match with the jewelry set that I couldn’t pass it up. I found this shiny black polish with dark gold stars on the Marketplace for just 1 linden. This dollarbie by Sparkle Bunny is a Maitreya nail applier only, and it will allow you to apply a manicure and a pedicure.

Make it Quick

Make it Quick Hello again Fab Free’rs I’m back for a quick post about the Fall Tears Hunt item at Sevyn East. I picked up this super cute 1 linden hunt prize the other day while I was also picking up the Sevyn East group gift I blogged here. I thought this skirt with the suspenders and the sleeveless top was too cute to not share it. It is plain but the subtle difference in the textures of each part are what make the solid black outfit work. This pretty mesh dollarbie includes the outfit in standard mesh sizes only. The hint to help you find this FTH prize is “I can be a little nosy.” Don’t wait, this hunt ends September 30th!

Happy Hunting Fab Free! Here are the details.

Seeing Red

Seeing Red

If it’s been a while since you’ve stopped by Analog Dog to check out the FREE ball on the back beach, now is the time to do so, as there are some new FREE hairs in the ball just waiting for you to pick them up. In the picture above, I’m sporting a messy curly do called idyll, to which I added the jana bang set from the ball. The ball included both a hud for the dark blondes set as well as a hud for light reds… however since the hud includes a tinting option, you can get much darker brown and black shades on the hair as well.

Seeing Red 2

In the picture above I am showing you just one of two FREE hats that were also included in the FREE ball. This is the mill hat and is a perfect fit over the top of idyll once I removed the jana bang piece. I love the classy black hat. There was also a modern red print fedora as well!

Seeing Red 3

This classy style above is called samadhi, and is a lovely side-swept mesh style. Like idyll, it comes in dark blonde and light reds.

In the picture below I’m showing you the last addition to the FREE ball — scream cheese. It does just kind of make you want to scream “cheese” and take pictures. It’s one of those fabulous hairs that is casual and fun.

To find the free ball, fly up and back to the beach-y area of the Analog Dog hair sim and look for the semi-transparent bubble. Buy it for 0L and these great styles are yours.

Seeing Red 4

I’m not quite done yet though… I wanted to mention a few other tricks up my sleeve in my style today. Sometimes your skin needs a refresh. Make up is a great way to give a favorite skin a new feel, and testers are a nice way to get a new look without a lot of Lindens. I ran across this FREE tester by alaskametro called Orchid… it’s this pretty lip-stain that freshened up my avatar’s face. You won’t even have to teleport anywhere, just pick it up off the marketplace. It comes in a system applier as well as appliers for TMP, Eve, Lelutka, Loudmouth, NyamNyam, Omega, and Slink Visage.

To polish off my new look I added a ring from the Cart Wash Sale, because jewelry always adds a nice finishing touch. This classy cocktail ring from Luminesse is stylish and only 10L. If you stop by the cart you’ll find several beautiful pieces for men and women both to add to your inventory.

In the Morning

Greetings FabFree Readers,

In the Morning

 

The week is quickly escaping us and we are hurrying to the weekend. In your rush, don’t miss this stylish duster for the group at Byrne. The ‘Victor Duster’ comes in the slate gray I’m showing and a cobalt blue as well and you receive both in the gift. Victor comes in the standard mesh sizes XS-XL and has a good alpha layer. However, be warned. There is a bit of a glitch in that there is no size M in the slate gray. Though it’s labeled as “Slate Gray M” it is the cobalt blue. I normally wear the standard Mesh size M but the mesh size S of this duster fit me actually rather well.  The quality of the details and build are well worth the small trouble with sizing/color.  Byrne‘s group is free to join and there are many past gifts out for sale at a reduced cost.

I needed something simple to go underneath the duster and found just the thing on the Marketplace. This is the ‘Male Shirt Black” from PobZeb. It also comes in the standard mesh sizes XS-XL and for just 1L, it was a great bargain.

I remain most sincerely yours,
Gabe's Signiture

Cardigan Weather

Cardigan Weather

It will be cardigan weather soon, and the Harvest Hunt is proving lucrative if you want to fill your inventory with fall ready clothes. I picked up this excellent outfit for just 1L and a little hunting time at Purple Passions Designs. It includes the Cardigan, Mens V Neck Slim Top, and Mens Casual Chino Pants all in one box. Each piece is separate for individual wear and each has it’s own alpha. There was also a pair of dress shoes and a fedora in the gift (not shown in the picture above) that were quite nice as well.

For 1L this gift is well worth hunting down. The textures are spot on and it is mesh in all the standard sizes to accommodate a perfect fit.

It’s a Secret is quickly becoming one of my go to designers on these hunts and it hasn’t disappointed me this time. This is the Pea Coat set and it’s the 1L prize for the ‘Stuff and Things’ Hunt. This generous prize includes the tailored pea coat, the shirt, the scarf and the jeans. Each piece, excluding the shirt, can be worn and sized separately. The standard mesh sizes XS-XL are included in the prize.  It’s a nice coming into Fall look for a little searching and one small linden.

It’s apple picking time! And I love this windblown looking hairstyle that says “fall” that you can pick up right now at KoKoLoReS FREE for September if you hurry! That’s because right now through September 15th, the join fee is waived. You can join the group for FREE and pick up this beautiful style in a fatpack of colors for this month’s group gift.

Blue Twist

Blue Twist

Out of the blue… I decided to get a little twisted… and put together a quick outfit to share with all of you.

The Twisted Hunt is on, and while this hunt is a tough one, the hunt gifts are well worth the finding. My amazing Rune in Blue mesh shirt (it comes in all the standard sizes) is the Twisted Hunt gift that is yours FREE when you hunt it down at Roped Passion’s main-store. There is also a nice ladies gift, two side gifts, and you can get the shirt in grey for only 25L if you so desire. A pretty fantastic deal, if I don’t say so myself.

I was also checking out the Fall Tears Hunt and when I started unpacking my boxes, was pleased to discover a pair of classically styled blue pants that worked perfect with my blue shirt from Roped Passion’s.

Stop by Horr Menswear and do a bit of hunting for the Fall Tears Hunt and this pair of blue slacks in all the standard sizes is yours for 1L and your hunting time. The cut is superb and they have a nice detailing of seams and pockets on the back rear end. These paired nicely with my shirt, but would go well with just about anything from dressing up to casual shirts as well.

T.G.I.F.

TGIFIt’s Fri-yay!!! Hello hello Fab Free’rs, I hope you’re enjoying this fine day, or are about to have a great weekend. As for me, I’m glad to be here sharing my Fabulous finds with you. For today I wanted to focus on hair and makeup. In my personal opinion one of the best things about Second Life is the ability to infinitely customize the look of your avatar. To say that my personal taste is eclectic would be an understatement, I love the freedom SL gives me to change my look entirely on a whim. That said, not all changes need to be dramatic. Sometimes something as simple as a new hairstyle, a new set of eyes, a bold eyeliner, or a different shade of lipstick can be all the change you need.

Speaking of hairstyles, I really like this FREE gift from Moda. I think the half up half down messy bun a great mix of casual and effortlessly chic. There’s no need to join a group or slap a board to get this FREEbie from Moda. The gift is FREE for everyone, and includes a chest-friendly fit. This is the only hair color included, however it’s FREE and really it’s quite pretty. To get this gift, head to the very back of the Moda store and click on the vendor. There are also several other non-group and group gifts waiting.
Double Take Okay, I know they are mildly distracting, but please do your best to ignore the odd little shadows that appeared in these photos! lol I wanted to give a side by side comparison of an already lovely skin with the addition of some various makeup appliers. Also, check out those eyes! The pretty mesh eyes are a FREE gift available to everyone at Dulce Secrets. I wouldn’t have guessed pink and silvery grey eyes would have been so pretty and passably natural looking. I am however, pleasantly surprised at how unique and pretty these eyes from Dulce Secrets look. You can get these pretty pink peepers for FREE by clicking the gift vendor next to the Midnight Mania board at Dulce Secrets, no group needed.

Next, the deep dark winged liner with the white added to the waterline that speaks to my soul is from Pink Acid. I was so excited when I came across it! I know, I’m a complete nerd and I don’t even care. I’m a sucker for beautifully done heavy winged eyeliner. I think my inability to create this look on myself in real life might make me covet it even more in Second Life! lol This Catwa applier by Pink Acid is available on the Marketplace for just 1 linden. You’ll also find a classic system layer in the package, so a mesh head isn’t a must.

Finally, the purple/mauve lipstick is another applier I picked up for FREE on the Marketplace from a shop called Shiny Stuffs. This FREE wearable demo is also an applier for Catwa heads only. Not only does an applier like this one give you the pop of color, but they often appear to change the shape of your lips, as you can see in the above photo. Ultimately, this fun FREE wearable demo by Shiny Stuffs is a beautiful color, and well worth the effort if you wear a Catwa head.

Here are the details, Enjoy!/

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!
