Because sometimes you gotta be a beauty and a beast

Because sometimes you gotta be a beauty and a beastSometimes you gotta be a beauty and a beast ~Nicki Minaj

Good morning FabFree Readers! I don’t listen to a whole lot of Nicki Minaj, but I did borrow her quote because I love it!

Scandalizing News

Today I have news about a new group gift at Scandalize!  The other day, the Velure set in black was added to the giant wall of VIP gifts.  This set includes the Velure Skirt and Top in both plain and fluffy versions.  I went all out and put on the fluffy version, and I tried so hard to shoot this photo in a way where you could see all the cool fluff, but it’s really one of those outfits you gotta see inworld to do it real justice!  It also includes a belly chain which you can custom texture (not shown in my photo, but you can see it in the vendor ad below).  This group has a 100L group join fee for those of you that are not already in it.

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya, Venus & Isis

All A Flutter

Snapshot_003
Hello there Fabulous Readers!  I am returning with more news about a sweet item I found at The Wash Cart Sale!  I don’t know if it didn’t rez for me the first time I went around, or if this is a late add-on to the Emerald Couture display, but last night while I was taking a walk around the block (The FabFree Info Hub is on The Wash Sim!), I noticed this beautiful Asian inspired dress hanging  there in all it’s glory!

Follow Your Butterflies

The silky textured Cheongsam Butterfly dress is just 10L, as is everything at The Wash’s Spring Is In The Air Event.  This dress is available in the black butterfly print or in a green print as well which you can find in the basket on the ground – also at 10L.  Whatever your body type…  There’s a size for it – as you can see from the list below.

Sizes Included:

  • XXS-L Mesh + Alpha Layer
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya, Venus & Isis

Sometimes It’s Better In SL

Snapshot_003
Hello there Fabulous Readers 🙂 What do you think of my painting?  In real life, I love art but unfortunately I am just not very good at it.  In Second Life, I’m practically a pro as you can see.  In fact, I can do a lot of things better in Second Life like dancing, wearing stilettos, dancing while wearing stilettos, flying airplanes and dressing myself for free!

Never in real life do I get so lucky as to come across a pair of adorable overalls with a top as a free gift for joining a group.  It just doesn’t happen.  It totally should 🙂

Anyways About The Outfit…

You can find this overall and top outfit set called Nell Overalls as a free group gift at Moolala.  It comes as one piece (top and pants together) in a handful of mesh sizes with an alpha layer and a HUD that allows you to  make a few changes to the denim colour, as well as several colours for the dotty tank top.  The Moolala inworld group is 25L to join.

Tis Kustom

Tis Kustom Hello Fab Free’rs, I hope you’ve all been having a wonderful week! I’m doing pretty well myself, especially after indulging in a little retail therapy at the current round of Kustom 9. This round of Kustom 9 is an anniversary round. Can you believe Kustom 9 has turned 3? In it’s relatively short time in Second Life, Kustom 9 has become one of the events I personally enjoy the most. I like the fact that it has remained a smaller event while still bringing in quality designers, at least in my opinion. In celebration of this anniversary, most if not all the participating vendors have put out a 9 linden gift. I picked up several, and the ones shown here are just a handful that I thought went well together.

This cute shoulder-length hairstyle is the K9 gift from MINA. I am always a sucker for heavy blunt bangs! I also like the swept back look of the style. I think it appears as though it could be tied back, but it floats over the shoulders and ends in a sort of feathery natural looking edge. The hair includes a color change hud of pretty “light brown” variations, and a version with and one without materials enabled.

Next, Essences also placed out a pretty variation on their Sophia skin as their K9 gift. This lovely face with the lilac lips is a Catwa head applier only. The gift applier is in the Essences medium01 tone with dark brows, and costs just 9 lindens like all the gifts at Kustom 9. I think the subtle makeup on this Catwa head applier by Essences is great for everyday wear. I also believe would look just as nice with casual clothing as it would with formal attire.

Fab Free’s own Kathryn commented on the photo for this post in Flickr that these eyes were “striking”. I completely agree with her, she always has such nice things to say! The eyes are part of the K9 gift from S0NG. S0NG’s 9 linden gift includes this hazy blue pair of eyes, and an equally strange and beautiful greenish pair. Named the “Bomi” eyes, each pair comes in a  mesh set, as well as a classic system layer.

Finally, this glittery iridescent choker with the little heart is from Pumpkin and I’m crushing on it big time! lol The mesh collar/choker has such a fun vibe, and it made me think of all the fun plastic jewelry I would have worn in my teens. Needless to say there was an instant feeling of slight nostalgia which is always a good thing in my book. The glittery heart choker has resize scripts built in for easy fitting, and is seriously cute on, especially for just 9 lindens.

Here are the details, I hope you like this small sample of the Anniversary gifts at Kustom 9.

Hair – MINA – Odyle – Light brown – 9L @Kustom9

Flowers & Paws

Flowers and Paws

Evening FabFree! It’s been a busy weekend for me, but I dropped in to share some special treats with you… a little bit here… a little bit there! It all adds up to something colorful!

This round of Hairology wraps up June 30th, so if you haven’t stopped by to get all the FREE SLB13 cake gifts, you should hurry. Tonight, I’m showing you the gift from Iconic. It is a high and sleek, mesh pony tail that is really stylish. It’s a full fatpack of colors, so don’t miss out.

My mesh LBGT Pride shirt by GetDressed is a lucky 9L find on the marketplace. It comes in all the standard mesh sizes and its own alpha if you are using a standard system body. I liked the loose fit and the unique texture on the material of the traditional tank top cut.

My pretty manicure will only set you back 10L at the Cart Wash Sale. You still have time to get in on the goods at the Cart Wash! This manicure is by New.Monday and called “Flower Power”. It features flowers on your nails. For just 10L you get 3 colors for Slink nails. There are a couple of other pretty manicure sets out that you’ll want to check out!

Flowers and Paws 2

I also picked up my Pride paws body paint at the Cart Wash Sale courtesy of the same Cart. New.Monday has set out the Pride Paws in either a top or bottom layer for just 10L each. So if you want only one or you want both, it’s up to you! You have the flexibility! This body paint is system layer only, but definitely worth rocking you system body for!

My shorts are another great find at the Cart Wash Sale (I told you I was giving you the goods this evening!). You’ll find this great pair of high waist shorts at the Vicarious Youth Cart for just 10L. They come in distressed Denim. I found that they ran a little on the small side, so I did have to wear a larger-than-my-usual size, but they are still a great fit!

I am drenched in deals today!

I found my had to have dress at the Flawless Frightful & Delightful Cart Sale & Hunt which runs thru the end of the month. Its from the More Than Ever cart and is their Exclusive item (all the carts have one) for the event. Spiders in the Dark Dress is specially priced at 50L. There is also a hunt going on most carts have a pumpkin for FREE on them with all sorts of types of gifts from clothes, accessories and skins. So grab those pumpkins for some treats. I ran across my fabulous mesh Halloween witch hat with pumkins & spiders on the Marketplace for FREE and it has a color change hud. It has great detailing and this color went perfect with the dress. My delicate Celebration ring with color hud is from Chop Zuey and is a generous FREE for all no group to join gift. It includes both a woman and men ring and with a quick edit I got it to work on my slink hands. Over at the Kustom9 event which runs thru November 10th its their birthday and many of the stalls have out gifts. All gifts are priced 9L but are well worth more just like these shoes from N-core. The Isis coral shoes wit slink, Belleza, Maitreya, TMP and N-core X-treme high feet. My hair is also from Kustom9. It is the gift from Mithral Apothecary. You get this lovely Ergot mesh hair in regular and busty.

You see the Mirthal Ergot hair from Kustom9 here again, just a lovely mesh blonde everyday hair well worth 9L. My Regina Salve bracelet with color hud is another FREE to all gift from Chop Zuey, no group to join. You get both right and left bracelets. My elegant Malibu Mesh Maxi Dress Pack is another FREE to all gift this time from Rebel Hope. You get this mesh dress in 11 different colors. I picked the peachy to show you as it goes with my new N-core shoes.

I am off to follow a lead on some more freebies to bring your way shortly!

Lets enjoy the rest of the month and the time we have. FabFree should be remembered fondly, dry those tears.

Death Becomes Lady Jezebeth in a Den of Spiders

Death Becomes Lady Jezebeth in a Den of Spiders 1

Morticia: [to Gomez] I’m just like any modern woman trying to have it all. Loving husband, a family. It’s just, I wish I had more time to seek out the dark forces and join their hellish crusade. [Morticia Adamms – Character. The Adamms Family Values 1993.]

Ah yes… nothing like classic old school Gothic horror to make your Halloween delightful. Spiders, cobwebs, long straight hair, and tight fitting red gowns — a Gothic beauty has it all. Friendly smiles just are not for her… not when she has the beautifully grotesque to keep her company!

And the Along Came a Spider Hunt and PurpleMoon came through on this deal (as well as a few other designers) on some sweet surprises to make even Morticia Adamms pause in her pursuit of seeking out the dark forces!

Start with a craw over to Lilith’s Den to pick up their 1L Along Came a Spider Hunt Gift — this Along Came a Lloth Theater Stage building set up. It is a mere 25 prim — all decor included. The candles, pictures, table, and rug are each separate pieces and copy-able so you can mix and match to your heart’s content!

Be sure to also drop by to nab this classic dress from PurpleMoon Creations which is fully mesh in all the standard sizes and includes glove appliers for all your mesh body needs (omega, slink, etc.). I love that this dress can pull off a classic Gothic look, but would also be great for the ballroom, Valentine’s day, or any other formal occasion! You can pick up this classic beauty FREE with your Group membership which is a mere 50L to join but comes with regular gifts that are just as lovely as this one.

Death Becomes Lady Jezebeth in a Den of Spiders 2

Morticia: So… you still desire me after all these years? The old ball and chain?
Gomez: Forever!
Morticia: I’ll get them! [Morticia Adamms – Character. The Adamms Family Values 1993.]

Don’t worry, this fabulous skin and hair combination from Lumae and MINA won’t feel like a ball and chain at all!

I wanted to first give you a close up of the two skins available currently as gifts at Lumae. One is a completely FREE group gift courtesy of Lumae and SL free and offers. Join the SL free and offers group for FREE and pick up the gift from the Lumae main store. This one is pictured above and is called Lumae :: Niska – Varda – Death Becomes Her. The second fabulous Halloween skin is called Lumae :: Niska – Varda – Lady Death V2 and is this month’s FREE group gift from Lumae. This group is also FREE to join and the close up of this skin is pictured below.

If you hop over to the Kustom9 Birthday Celebration, for the sweet birthday price of only 9L you can pick up this great Gothic Hair by Mina called Jezebeth in Blood. It comes with a Halloween pallet of colors ranging from black to white with bloody tips. Above, Astrid is sporting it in black.

Death Becomes Lady Jezebeth in a Den of Spiders 3

Morticia: [confronting Debbie in her house] You have gone too far. You have married Fester, you have destroyed his spirit, you have taken him from us. All that I could forgive. But Debbie…
Debbie Jellinsky: What?
Morticia: …pastels? [Morticia Adamms – Character. The Adamms Family Values 1993.]

No! Not pastels! How terrifyingly unforgivable!

But I did want to give you an idea of how versatile the Jezebeth Bloody Halloween color change hud is. So I’ve shown you another color change in the picture above. It does range down to a white with bloody tips as well. It’s a stunning Halloween hair for any bloody occasion (or Gothic party wear).

Death Becomes Lady Jezebeth in a Den of Spiders 4

Morticia: Wednesday, look at all of the other children, their freckles, their bright little eyes, their eager, friendly smiles. Help them. [Morticia Adamms – Character. The Adamms Family Values 1993.]

And help them we will! With one more fabulous gift! Besom is hosting a simply fantastic Midnight Mania board for a lovely hair called Alder which is well worth grabbing before it is gone. The slap rate is high (650) but with the popularity of the store, I had no problem getting the prize. The board closed early for me the day I went over to give it my slap and I had my hair. You can see that the Gothic curly locks were a great compliment to this gown, and the gift is a fatpack — ALL colors included. It is a Group needed midnight Mania Board, but the group is FREE to join, making this a completely FREE gift and well worth stopping by the store to get. Don’t miss out! And take a few friends with you!
