Hello Fab Free’rs! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. If you’re in need of some retail therapy, but your lindens (like mine!) are limited, you might check out the Black and White Hunt happening at CroM. This hunt is a CroM store hunt, and the prizes are 5 linden each. You’ll be looking for small black and white televisions hidden around the store. The short-alls and long sleeve top Pru has on are together one of the 5 total prizes. The top and overall shorts come in quite a few sizes, an alpha layer for classic avatars. Also, the top and shorts can be worn separately.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Voluptuous, Fitmesh (s,m,l), Ocacin, Belleza (Freya, Venus)

Hunting at Ostara


Ostara 2

Hello Fabulous Fab Free’rs! Thank you as always for being here. The Ostara’s Altar event just recently started, and part of the event includes a 5 linden hunt. Each of the shops has an Ostara Hunt egg hidden somewhere on the event grounds. The term hidden should be used loosely though, considering many of the shops have placed their egg within plain sight. A few shops also have multiple hunt prizes. Each of these hunt gifts will cost you a mere 5 linden. For this post I picked out three of the many prizes to share with you. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

Floral Headband – There’s something inherently springtime about flowers in your hair. Since Ostara is in spring, this floral headband by Oubliette makes the perfect accessory. It’s their 5L hunt item at the Ostara’s Altar event. There are no scripts, so it’s also low-lag, and it’s mod so it can be manually sized.

Nose Stud – The little spiked nose-stud Pru is wearing is another 5L Ostara’s Altar hunt prize. This one is by Neverwish, and it comes with a silver version, and the “galaxy” version that is shown. This piercing also appears to be free of scripts and can be manually sized.

Earrings – I love the delicate look of these gold earrings by PKC which stands for Purrrrfect Kitties Creations. They too are another of the many 5 linden Ostara’s Altar hunt prizes. These earrings do have resize scripts that allow you to custom fit them. The script even includes a poser to help your avatar stand still without the need of a pose stand.

Here are the details:

Headband – Oubliette– Flora Headband – 5L Hunt Prize @Ostara’s Altar
Hair – TRUTH VIP Joy – Past VIP Group Gift *Originally Blogged Here 
Head – CATWA HEAD Koura Bento
Skin – Essences – Vanya
Earrings – Purrrrfect Kitties Creations – Jojo Earrings – 5L Hunt Prize @Ostara’s Altar

Keep Calm

Keep Calm

Hello Fab Free’rs! Does any one know what day it is? I am feeling the hectic side of the holidays and sometimes I don’t know if I am coming or going! Luckily I have you guys, some good friends, and a cup of hot tea to remind me to slow down a minute and relax. I also get to take the time to share with you more fantastic Cart Sale finds and a fun addition from the Holiday Ho Ho Ho hunt.

The Sweater & Boots – Even my shoes are telling me to be calm today! These boots by De’Fient Unicorn are available at The Cart Sale and the best part (in my opinion) is the message on the sole of the shoe. It reads “Keep Calm and Activate Unicorn Power.” These shoes come in Maitreya and Slink sizes, and include a color change hud with 5 preset options. Also at the De”Fient Unicorn Cart Sale booth is this pretty playful sweater dress. I chose to wear it with jeans because, baby it’s cold outside! It comes in several mesh sizes and has a texture change hud with 5 patterned/graphic options to choose from. Also, this item has an alpha layer and is suitable for classic avatars!

Sweater Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Ebody, TMP, Fitmesh (XS-XL), Model M, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus) Ocacin, Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Slink (Physique, Hourglass)

The Headband – This cute pink wire reindeer antler headband is one of several 5 linden Holiday Ho Ho Ho hunt prizes at Oleander. Each of the 5 prizes includes 2 head accessories. There are two types of headbands, and fuzzy earmuffs to be found. You just need to find the “hidden in plain sight” little blue stars at the Oleander shop. I added a copy of the Holiday Ho Ho Ho hunt key for Oleander below. Happy Hunting!

Here are the details, enjoy!

Goth Garage Sale Hunt Accessories

More Goth Garage Sale
Hi hi Fab Free’rs! I’m back with a few more of the hunt prizes at the Goth Garage Sale. If you’re in need of a few good Goth accessories or maybe the perfect pair of chucks, this post is for you! The above photo should have been dated circa 1998 or so, because this look has me feelin’ some ’90s fashion nostalgia. haha As I’d mentioned in my previous post about the Goth Garage Sale hunt, you’ll be hunting little black cats with glowing yellow eyes. They are hidden (some more than others) around the Goth Garage Sale event and are just 5 linden each. Don’t forget, this event and the hunt will end August 8th.
Goth Garage Sale Hunt Close

Abyssal Beast Ring

I seem to recall that creepy cool rings being popular about the time I was graduating high school. It makes sense that they would be making a come-back. This Abyssal Beast ring is the Goth Garage Sale hunt prize by Venge. With sprawling black tentacles and a bright green eye, it’s an excellent goth accessory.

Koffin Nails

Lately I have rediscovered my love of nail polish. No goth look would be complete without a darkly beautiful manicure. The pretty black and red nail polish Pru is wearing comes courtesy of Dark Passions. Their Goth Garage Sale hunt item is a goth themed manicure and pedicure applier set. The set includes 6 color options each with the little black coffin with the crescent moon.

Appliers Included: Slink, Omega, Maitreya

Familiar Necklace

Another of my favorites from the Goth Garage Sale hunt is this unisex Familiar Necklace by The Little Bat. I love the idea of having a familiar, I’d like to think mine would be a bat, or maybe a crow. This pretty necklace with its thin black chain and little pagan star comes with a texture change hud that will let you choose from 10 different black and white animal familiar photos to display in the pendant.

Eternal Heart

Call it a collar or a choker, I really like this Goth Garage Sale hunt prize from Senzafine. The aptly named Eternal Heart Choker comes in the black and red color shown with the cute heart dangle and heart shaped ring. It’s the perfect combination of goth and sweet.

Doodle Chucks

To be perfectly honest I wasn’t sure I was going to like these Doodle Chucks by Oubliette at first. Then I tried them on! I love the playful little scribbles and doodles on the black canvas of the Goth Garage Sale hunt prize shoes. They do not appear to be meant for any specific mesh feet, however the note card that came with the gift says they are unrigged and can be modded to fit Slink, Maitreya, and Venus flat feet. I had no problem wearing them with my Maitreya feet. I didn’t need to stretch or size them at all, just move them a little. Now I want to wear them with everything!

The Cross I Bare

Lilac
Hello There Fab Free’rs! I’m just going to come right out and say that Stix has just provided me with my new favorite fantasy toned skin. No contest. I love the lavender shade, and it certainly doesn’t hurt that this gorgeous purple hued skin is a FREE group gift at Stix. Needless to say once I was wearing the skin I was instantly inspired to create this cool demoness look.

Yuki as Syx

This fabulously generous group gift at Stix includes classic system layers with options for cleavage/nipples, nether regions,  and brows. Additionally there is a full set of appliers. While the body and head appliers are Omega based, they are specifically done to fit each of the different body types (Slink Pysique, Slink Hourglass, Maitreya, Belleza) rather than using one texture for all. The Stix group is FREE to join at this time. So if you aren’t already a PixyStix group member, no need to worry you can still get this amazing gift for FREE since there is not a group join fee all you need is group space!

Appliers Included: All in One Hud – Omega Appliers (Head & Body), Mesh Ear Appliers (Bentbox, Logo, Soul Uni), Heavy Cleavage Applier

Hunting at the Goth Garage Sale

I had some help creating this cool look thanks to some hunt items I picked up at the Goth Garage Sale. The Goth Garage Sale Hunt items are just 5 lindens each, and you’ll be hunting little black cats with glowing yellow eyes. Most of them are fairly easy to find. The little yellow-eyed cats are hidden/perched around the Goth Garage Sale venue, some are even hidden in the shops. The Goth Garage Sale event and Hunt end August 8th.

This Hair is Sn@tched

This sleek long hairstyle and horns set are the Goth Garage Sale Hunt prize by Sn@tch. I was pleasantly surprised to see a hairstyle from Sn@tch. The 5 linden hunt prize includes the hairstyle Drucilla with a “Goths” color hud that has 16 goth inspired hair-color options. You’ll also get the horns which can be worn separately. Horns are set up with resize scripts.

The Cross I Bare

The heavy cross Pru is wearing is another Goth Garage Sale Hunt item, this one from Psycho Barbie. The necklace fits well, is sizable, and includes a color change hud. The color hud lets you pick between black, gold, light gold, and silver. You can hunt down your 5 linden copy of the Psycho Barbie Croix necklace at the Goth Garage Sale.
Lilac 4
I went ahead and added a second photo, not just because I had so much fun with this look, I wanted to give a closer look at the third Goth Garage Sale Hunt item I used for this look. Also, it gives you a great close-up of the Yuki as Syx group gift skin from Stix, and the beautiful texture of the horns included in the Sn@tch Goth Garage Sale Hunt prize. Plus, I love the way she looks with this mad face!

Black Pearls

This detailed facial piercing set is the Goth Garage Sale Hunt prize by Black Pearls, and probably my personal favorite of the hunt items I collected. Like all the hunt prizes, this one from Black Pearls is just 5 lindens. First I want to point out that the blades along the forehead are color change, just click one and you’ll get a drop down menu with tons of color options. With just a minor adjustment to the position, the set fit my mesh head perfectly.

Here are the details, Happy Hunting Fab Free!

Cupcakes Anonymous Farewell Hunt

CAH TLB

Cupcakes Anonymous Farewell Hunt

Hello Fab Free’rs! Looking for a fun way to spend a little free time? Why not do the Cupcakes Anonymous Farewell Hunt! The Cupcakes Anonymous Hunt has been a widely recognized hunt in Second Life for a while now. Sadly, this is the last year the hunt will run. It’s been a minute since I did a hunt, and this farewell CAH with an Alice in Wonderland theme was too much to resist. Each prize on the hunt is just 5 lindens. I personally didn’t come across anything for the guys on this hunt, sorry gentlemen, but there are a few furniture and decor items along side the plethora of ladies clothing and accessories. I of course picked out a few favorites to share with you. The CAH will run from now until May 31st, so there’s plenty of time to get hunting.

The Cheshire Cat

Of all the Wonderland characters, the Cheshire Cat has always been my favorite, followed closely by The Hatter. The Cheshire Cat print dress and matching leggings Pru has on are the 5L CAH prize at The Little Bat. The dress and leggings can be worn together or separately. You also get a color change hud for the dress, there are 4 Wonderland themed prints to choose from, or you can pick from the 16 additional solid color options. The dress and leggings come in the following mesh sizes: standard, Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), eBody. The leggings come in standard mesh sizes also, and a TMP size.
CAH Prizes

Gotta Love a Messy Bun

I love an up-do with bangs. This messy bun hairstyle is the CAH prize at lock&tuft. Just find the cupcake and for 5 lindens you’ll get this cute style in a fatpack of color options. This hairstyle from lock&tuft also has the added feature of touch menu resizing.

Flutter Those Lashes

These playful feathery lashes are part of the CAH prize at ARTE. The lash applier hud works with Catwa heads only. In addition to these pretty purple lashes, there are 3 equally pretty everyday versions. This CAH prize like the others is also just 5 lindens.
CAH Tattoo

Wonderland Ink

Finally, this pretty full back tattoo is the CAH prize at Ripley Bay Tattoos. This 5 linden prize gets you the full tattoo in a full opacity, and a slightly faded version. The hud will work for Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, eBody, and Omega compatible mesh bodies. Also included are classic system layers for non-mesh avatars.

Sinister to Sultry

Sinister to Sultry Sometimes all you need is a little makeup and a change in eye-color to change your look in a dramatic way. Using eyes by S0NG that I picked up at the Crossroads event, and makeup from the 50 Shades of Catwa Hunt happening at Indulge Temptation, I was able to take Pru’s look from slightly sinister to sultry. Pru’s wearing the same head, hair, and base skin in both photos.

In my opinion eyes from S0NG almost always have an otherworldly look to them. The Nyx eyes gacha by S0NG at the Crossroads event is no exception. These eyes have that signature glassy look S0NG is known for, and come in a huge variety of colors that range from natural to unnatural and everything in between. These sparkling eyes are available for just 55 lindens per play at the Crossroads event. Included with each pair of eyes is a mesh set of eyes, a matching alpha, and a system layer set.

The dramatic eye shadow and intensely colored lipsticks are just a few of the 50 total Catwa makeup appliers you can hunt down during the Indulge Temptation 50 Shades of Catwa Hunt. The item you’ll be hunting for is a little Catwa logo. Each hunt prize is 5 lindens and includes a single shade of lipstick or eye shadow. There are no groups to join, just head over to Indulge Temptation and enjoy the hunt!

Here are the details, Happy Hunting!

Sunshine Summertime

Sunshine Summertime

Okay, I have to admit, even me, the girl who loves the fall and even enjoys rainy gloomy weather has been daydreaming about summertime! I hear the beach calling to me and I want to go play in the sun! Summertime is almost here and these gifts at the Whore Couture Fair 5 are perfect for some fun in the sun. Before I continue, I want to mention again, as the name suggests, the Whore Couture Fair is an adult themed event, though many of the gifts are not adult themed.
Summertime Fun

These super kawaii sunnies are the 5 linden WCF5 gift from Epic. Most of the time I’d say pink is not my color, however if anything could make me want to wear pink, these sunglasses could! The glasses are fully mesh and can be re-sized via a touch menu.

Tattoos and piercings are always among my favorite personal wardrobe items. Second Life makes it so easy to wear both. I genuinely like the look of these unisex facial piercings from Datum. They are Datum’s 5 linden WCF5 gift. The set is fully mesh and can be manually re-sized.

Speaking of tattoos, my photo really does not do this beautiful under-bust tattoo from TrevaH enough justice. It’s really quite detailed, and very pretty. This 5 linden WCF5 gift comes with appliers for Omega, TMP, Slink, and Maitreya. There is also a classic system layer for each color, the tattoo comes in a white version as well as the black version shown. If you enjoy tattoos, this one is a must have!

Continuing with the pink and cute, this very girly bikini is the 5 linden WCF5 gift from Holli Pocket. This pink heart print bikini seems almost made to go with the sunnies from Epic. I like that this bikini has the fun wrap around laces and still has some decent coverage on the top and bottom, I don’t feel indecently exposed! This gift includes classic system layers, and an Omega applier.

Lastly, the uber cute beach ball pose in the top photo is part of the pose-pack gift from Belle Poses. The gift includes 4 poses with a beach ball prop, which for just 5 lindens is a steal of a deal! I love poses that include the necessary props. You can add this pose set to your collection for just 5 lindens at WCF5.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Prudence, and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day

Bad Day

Have you ever had one of those days where nothing seems to go right and everything turns into a disaster? That was me today! Luckily, the day is over, and I was able to make myself feel a heck of a lot better by trying on all the 5 linden swag I picked up at Whore Couture 5. Before I continue, I do want to make it clear (as if the name wasn’t suggestive enough) that Whore Couture 5 is an Adult event with very adult content in some shops. The event is celebrating 5 years and has a huge number of participating shops. To help celebrate the 5th round of the Whore Couture Fair each of the shops has a special 5 linden gift set out. There’s no need to join the group to get the gifts, and there are plenty of great gifts that aren’t adult themed.

Despite the expression on Pru’s face, I really love these gifts! The hair she’s wearing is the WCF5 Gift from Phoenix. The style is called Fabienne and includes the light browns color hud, and the VIP rainbow color hud. There are also 3 size options for this style so you get the best fit. This is a great long wavy style, and for 5 lindens you’ll want it in your inventory!

Next on the list, how hot is this makeup applier from The Skinnery? I love it! The dark splatter around the eyes, and the watercolor-like cheeks are a bit doll-like and equally sinister. This 5 linden WCF5 gift from The Skinnery is an Omega applier, so should work with any Omega compatible head as long as you have the appropriate Omega relay.

The second  put on the necklace from Kenvie, I didn’t want to take it off, and I knew I had to share it with you! This geometric necklace is a great statement piece. This particular WCF5 gift includes a male version, and can be re-sized via touch menu. Honestly, there isn’t anything I don’t like about this gorgeous necklace.

It goes without saying that I love tattoos, and I’m always impressed by Identity Body Shop. These arcane looking hand tattoos are the 5 linden WCF5 gift from Identity Body Shop. This generous gift includes classic system layers, and the following appliers: Omega, Maitreya, WowMeh, and Belleza (in a single hud), along with a separate TMP applier, and individual appliers for Maitreya hands, Slink, and TMP.

Finally, for this post anyway, this black top is just part of the WCF5 gift from Apple May Designs. This cute sleeveless crop top comes in 3 colors, black, pink, and white. Included with each color are classic system layers, and the following appliers for just 5 lindens: Maitreya, TMP, Slink, Omega, and Belleza. You can never have too many cute solid colored tops, so don’t forget to pick up this one!

Here are the details, Enjoy!
