Laundry Day

 

Laundry Day
Hi Again Fab Free’rs! I call this look “when it’s laundry day but you still wanna look cute for Easter.” hahaha Really, I had a lot of fun with a few more finds from The Rotten Egg Hunt, and this fun “Need Laundry” pose by DANU. I picked up this cute top at The Rotten Egg Hunt, it’s by Secret Oktober. Also while at The Rotten Egg Hunt I picked up a really pretty crescent shaped bindi by Valika Rituals. Keep reading for all the details about these fabulous finds. Also, Aline’s sweet sleepy self has been doing some Rotten Egg Hunting, to see what she found check out her post “Sleepy Times.”

The Pose – This fun laundry pose is a Marketplace find by DANU. It’s just 37 linden and it includes a pose-ball pose, and the laundry basket prop. The basket comes white, but I tinted it darker. I also needed to shrink it down to fit between Pru’s hand and hip, which was easy to in edit mode since the basket does not have any scripts. Have fun, and do your laundry!

The Top – Secret Oktober has 5 versions of this cropped bunny sweater at The Rotten Egg Hunt. I was excited to find the number 5 egg and get the bunny with the spider. It felt a little bit like Easter and a little bit like Halloween, which suits my exceedingly eclectic tastes. lol These tops are just 10 linden each, and come in a Maitreya fit only.

The Bindi – This pretty little bindi by Velika Rituals is one of the dollarbie Rotten Egg Hunt prizes. At just 1 linden, it is way too nice to pass up. I’m loving accessories that are free of scripts like this one, sometimes simple really is best. You can resize, and even change the color of this bindi by using the edit menu. Just don’t forget to make a copy first!

Happy When it Rains


Happy When it Rains

Hi Fab Free! Thank you for being here. Have you noticed all the hunts happening? It seems to me there are quite a few. I did a little bit of the Save Earth Hunt, and wanted to share two of the gifts with you. The Save Earth Hunt is a grid-wide dollarbie hunt. Each prize is just 1 linden, and the hunt object is a pink rosebud. The dress, and the animated umbrella Pru is having a ball with are both 1 linden SEH prizes. Keep reading for all the extra information!

The Umbrella – I thought this fun umbrella prop by Orphic for the Save Earth Hunt was just too cute to not share with you. It comes in a day version (shown) and a night version (not shown). By clicking the handle of the umbrella you can turn the rain particle effect on or off. Clicking the top part of the umbrella will let you start or stop the animated pose. This playful hunt prize is just 1 linden, so don’t miss out!

Hint – “Try for the Hi-Score”

The Dress – The patchwork and denim sundress Pru has on is by Freda. This style dress just screams happy warm sunshine days in my opinion. Also, I think it would be just as cute with almost any type of shoe you wanted to wear with it. The dress is another dollarbie Save Earth Hunt prize. It is mesh and comes in quite a few sizes. Also included are standard/classic mesh sizes and an alpha layer for classic non-mesh avatars. Don’t miss this adorable dollarbie!

You can also change the license plate, and so much more.

To get your copy of this amazing car, head over to the RFL Home & Garden Expo (sim 5) to the Surplus Motors area. You’ll be looking for a prim version of the round RFL H&G Expo Logo.

The Top – Perfect for a warm weather day, this fishnet bandeau top is just 1 linden at the Spring Cart Sale De’Fient Unicorn cart. This cute dollarbie comes in several sizes, and includes an alpha layer. You know what that means, this one is suitable for classic non-mesh avatars as well as mesh avatars.

Why Be Moody When You Can Shake Your Booty?

Why Be Moody When You Can Shake Your Booty?

There is nothing easier than staying in shape in Second Life.  Isn’t it the ideal pastime?  You just sit back and wear super cute clothing and bounce about a bit, and voila – your avatar is just as perfect as it was when you started.  Then you can eat some calorie-free pizza while still looking completely unflappable.  Now if only I could figure out how to get that calorie-free pizza (with a bit more taste too) in RL!

Unique is my Middle Name

There’s a hunt going on at MH Unique Design!  I use the term “hunt” very loosely because it’s more of a walkabout of the store where you click on massive posters full of goodies.  I got this awesome jumpsuit there for just 1 Linden, as well as the shoes for another measly little Linden!  What a great deal!  The jumpsuit comes in six pretty different colours, and the shoes (which are sized for Belleza, Maitreya and Classic Avatars) come with an HUD full of fun different texture options.  Super awesome.  There are loads of other 1L prizes on the ground at MH Unique Design,  (as well as a bunch of group gifts, and about a million lucky boards) so make sure you check it out!

Jumpsuit Sizes

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus
  • Hourglass

Keep an eye out for those pizzas we talked about…

Welcome to the Sun


Freespirits

Namaste Fellow Fab Free Flower Children, and welcome back to the blog! Spring is officially here and the dollarbie Boho Hunt prize at Fukin’ Cute had me feeling like a free-spirit so I grabbed my guy Blue once again for a groovy adventure. It was a lot of fun teaming up with him again to try and capture the feeling of such an iconic time period. His tie-dye shirt, and Pru’s long skirt and halter top are both part of the same hunt prize at Fukin’ Cute.  I hope you enjoy this 1 linden Boho Hunt gift as much as we did.

His Tie-Dye Shirt – Nothing says “Free Spirit” more than tie dye if you ask me. This long-sleeve tee is the gift for the guys in the Boho Hunt prize at Fukin’ Cute. It comes in several mesh sizes, and includes an alpha layer making it suitable for classic avatars. To get your copy just look for the Boho Hunt object, a cute little llama, at Fukin’ Cute and purchase it for 1 linden.

Sizes Included: Standard Mesh (xs – XL), Nardcotix David, Belleza Jake, Signature Gianni, Niramyth Aesthetic, Slink Male, TMP, Absolute Creations Adam

Her Skirt & Halter Top – Something about the green and white mandala-like pattern on this outfit by Fukin’ Cute just feels like spring. The outfit is the female part of the 1L Boho Hunt gift at Fukin’ Cute. With this outfit you’ll get the skirt and top in several sizes. I like the idea of being able to wear the top and skirt separately. All you have to do is find the Boho Hunt llama and purchase it for 1 linden to get your copy.

Sizes Included: Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Maitreya Lara, Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Slink (Physique, Hourglass)

I’m not saying it was aliens, but it was aliens!

FabFree: I'm not saying it was aliens, but it was aliens!
Have you ever had one of those days where nothing is going right and you think an alien abduction might be your best option?  This is the kind of day I had yesterday…  It was most definitely a Monday on a Tuesday (courtesy of the long weekend I suppose lol), and by 8PM, I was ready to strategically place myself in a field and wait for the little green men to take me away.  Here’s hoping today is less abrasive for one and all.

This unique Alien Abduction Pose is and oldie, but a goodie, and you can find it for just 1L in the HelaMiyo marketplace store.  I hope you pick it up and have fun with it and make sure you pop those photos into the FabFree flickr pool so we can see!!

Queen of Hearts

Queen of Hearts

I love conversation hearts.  You know, those little pastel candies that don’t taste like anything in particular other than sugar and the colour pink.  It’s not the taste I’m after, it’s the little messages.  I still get overly amused when I find one that says “fax me” or “page me”.  Looks like the conversation heart writers are still stuck in 1994!

Love Bites

It’s time for the Love Bites Hunt!  There’s a sim full of little conversation hearts just begging for you to find them.  They are all priced from under 25 Lindens, and they are filled with goodies I just can’t get enough of.   The sim may be a little busy, but if you derender everyone and cam about it makes things just a little easier.  Today I’m showing off the offerings by Ersch, which are priced at only 1L each.  The sweater and skirt combo are delightfully quirky and give me that pink and red pop of colour that I love this time of year.  Both are sized for Maitreya bodies.  Don’t delay, the Love Bites Hunt runs until February 17th!

The real question is, who is faxing valentines!?!

Shake Shake, Shake Shake

Hello there FabFree!  I have no idea when it happened, but there are some really cool free mesh starter avatars in your inventory!  Grace Selene sent me a message earlier to tell me about them, and so I recruited her to help me show off a couple of them, along with a playful 1L dance animation by Move! Animations.

Second Life is offering plenty to choose from for guys and girls, young and old –  whether you want a normal avatar or something a little different.  There are retro avatars, medieval for roleplay, fantasy characters, vampires, wolfmen, demons, and even zombies. Below is just a snapshot of a random selection available.  Starter avatars have come a long way if you ask me!

Here’s how to easily find them and change them in firestorm…

  1. Click on “avatar” at the top left hand corner of your screen.
  2. Click on”toolbar buttons”.
  3. Select “avatars” and drag it down to your toolbar.
  4. Click on the avatar tool button you just created and select your poison.  (note…  this will replace your avatar)

Now to see them inworld…

Here’s the fun part!  Grace and I are showing off the retro 70s guy and girl, shaking our booties with the Sophie Bento 049 Dance Animation by Move! Animations which is a 1L teaser of their new dance line of Super Cute Kawaii Loops.

FabFree: Shake Shake, Shake Shake
