The Ghost of Saturday Night

The Ghost of Saturday Night

There is nothing like wrapping up a late night with bite to eat at a quiet diner.  And this retro, greasy spoon is the perfect place to show off my swinging ’60s mod dress I found at RIISE.  Every month, RIISE gives their group members a free 100L giftcard, so I was able to pick up this dress for only 20L.  The group is 25L to join and the monthly gift cards never expire.  This dress is Norah – Edition 4 and has a cute pattern on both the front and back.

The perfect accessory to go match was this chunky, retro style necklace I found as a free group gift at Pure Poison.  It the Gabrielle set and comes with matching earrings as well.  The group is free to join and has many other amazing gifts.

Every good outfit needs a little makeup, right? I am wearing Izzie’s Bunny Lipstick and the Gloom Eyeshadow Pru recently blogged about here.

No Time

No Time

I received very sad news today, FabFree. The Stay at Home Club is closing it’s doors as of September 25. I will be very sorry to see them go. I certainly got used to picking up all the great free gifts. But… all good things come to an end, I suppose.

No Time

I am glad I had time to pick up these great cargo pants from FurtaCor. These are the ‘Owen’ pants and while the Club is still open, you can get them for free. The pants come with a HUD to choose one of fifteen colors and patterns. As with everything I’ve seen from FurtaCor, these are a great build right down to the details. I would suggest, however, that you don’t wait around to grab these before the Stay at Home Club is just a fond memory.

Sizes Included

  • Aesthetic
  • Altamura
  • Signature – Gianni
  • SLink

One quick note, you may see that there is no Belleza Jake size. I have discovered that Altamura fits Jake rather well. Good to know.

Become the Druid Wizard

Druid Wizard

It was like a whisper or was it just the wind. The voice I just heard, murmur in my ear. I continued working, finally after a long day, I retired to my bed. Was awoken from such a vivid dream. As my eyes opened the dream faded, all but a feeling, then the voice again. “You will embark on a journey across the grid. To find the pieces you need to become the Druid Wizard I seek.” I shook my head then fell fast asleep. I rose the next morning thinking nothing of my dream the night before. Again the voice whispered in my ear. “To Kitty Creations you must go, quickly you must embark on the journey. For in a fortnight’s time I will need you. Look upon the floor and follow the silver gargoyle tracks. They will lead thy to what it is you seek. A miniature charred looking gargoyle which holds your gift.”
Once I found my gift I went to open it. The voice told me nay, you need to find all the piece before you can open the gifts. Off to Lindy the voice sent me to look upon the The Renaissance Hunt poster for the mini gargoyle that harbored my hint. I traveled the grid scaling mountains, across lakes, over vast sims, large oceans, and treacherous passes. To Simply Shelby, Delightful Creations, and Sweet Revolutions. Finally my journey was nearing it’s end. I had gathered all the pieces to which I was sent to find. I opened them in order from the first found to the last.
I donned the leather red hooded jacket and black pants from Kitty Creations. Pulled on the worn red leather Druda shoes from Lindy. I yielded the crystal wizard staff from Simply Shelby. Before I could open the others I was told to enter the dark woods. Travel through them until I saw the mystic fog. Was to follow it, where I came upon a druid rock circle. There I opened my last to gifts. The Spinning Pentagram from Delightful Creations and the Magical Crystal Of Lunimba from Sweet Revolutions.
They seemed to both spring from the boxes and move magically into place at the center of the stone circle. I was drawn onto the pentagram near the Crystal of Lunimba. I held up the staff and my hand. Before I knew it I was chanting the crystal was glowing and magical sparks filled the air. Swirling around me zodiac rune symbols appeared. Out of thin air a mystical pentagram formed in my hand. I had finally become the Druid Wizard to which the voice sought.

You too can embark on your own journey finding magical items of Witches, Wisewomen, and Wizards. That is the theme of this years The Renaissance Hunt X. The Historical Hunts Ltd. holds three hunts a year. All of them are free just like this one. Why not have a little fun, do something different, and join the hunt. You never know what goods you might find.

Julian

Julian

No, I’m not changing my name. I’m rather pleased with the one I have… well, actually I have three names. But that’s a story for another time. The Julian I am referring to is the name of the smashing new shirt I’m wearing today.

Details

As I said, this is ‘Julian’ from Finer Threads and you can add it to your closet for free. Yes, free. This is the free gift from Finer Threads at Uber. Ms. Prudence has already shown some of the free gift at Uber and Julianna came back from the event staggering under the weight of all the gifts she had collected. I had little hope for a mens gift, yet happily, here we are and it’s a very fine gift indeed.  If the charcoal color I chose isn’t your taste, Julian comes with a HUD for eight colors and as many other embroidery details.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza Jake
  • Signature – Gianni

Uber runs until September 22. For easy shopping, this is the Cam Shopping LM

Hello and Happy Weekend, FabFree. A new to me designer has popped up on my radar for good quality men’s wear today. I was alerted by my group chat for Third Life to a new gift. I know Juli has told you all about the Third Life Group and while there’s a majority of gifts for the girls, we guys have a gift or two as well. You just have to join the group for a small onetime fee of 10L and you’ll have access to loads of designers and those free gifts.

Tanked

Modern Charm is a new to me designer and I’m very pleased  to have discovered them. There is a group with multiple gifts and a large store. The items are well built and have quality textures. I have a feeling I will be returning to Modern Charm often.  This top is the Paolo Tank and you can pick it up for free with your Third Life Group tag. The tank comes with a HUD with five colors and four graphics you can mix.

Hey FabFree! Can you believe we are rolling so fast towards the end of July? I’ve still got a list of things that need to be done before that! I’ve got Hunts and Fairs and events all stacking up!  So lets get at least one of those going now.

Celtic Love

I love the Celtic history and language and countries. Scotland is my family’s ancestral home both on the Grid and in the Real world. So I had to take part in the Celtic Celebration Hunt.  And since I can’t resist a man in a kilt, I convinced Gabriel to come along.

These are the men’s and women’s gifts from Mystrie for the Hunt : the Aina dress and the Aiden Kilt.  The dress comes as one easy piece and is a lovely build. If you can’t see in the picture, there is Celtic knotwork all down the skirt and the texture in the bodice is so detailed. This will be a staple in my RP closet.

The Aiden Kilt comes in three pieces – the shoes and socks, the kilt and the vest. Gabriel did add the undershirt from his own closet. Again, the details are spot on. The textures are smooth and well made.

The Celtic Celebration Hunt runs until July 29th so don’t wait around to get your Hunt on!

Take a Little Trip

Take a little trip
Take a little trip, take a little trip
Take a little trip and see
Take a little trip, take a little trip
Take a little trip with me

~ Low Rider

It’s way too hot in Texas to stick around. Today, the temp on the car’s dashboard said it was 108 degrees! That’s Way. Too. Hot. Some I had to get away.Take a little trip… as it were.  Luckily, it’s always nice on the Grid. I even found a gorgeous SIM that’s based on the Highlands of Scotland… where even in the Summer… it’s nice and cool.

Take a little trip

I was also pleased to find a great free gift from V8 that is perfect for wandering the Highlands. This is the Roger Urban outfit and it’s free with your Third Life Group tag. To join the Thrid Life Group just click the poster and pay a small one time 10L and there you go. Now, when I say outfit… that’s the whole outfit. You get the sweater plus scarf, the trousers, the fedora and the sneakers. (There’s also a pair of sunglasses that I forgot to put on…) The mesh is a good solid build. I had no clipping issues and it moved well. The colors would be good for Fall or Winter. I have no idea how long this special will last so don’t delay.

Pit Stop

Pit Stop

ROAD TRIP!!! Well not really, more like a LLllllloooonnnggg drive. Cause these days the car is another place we all feel safe in. To top it off you get a change of scenery and to be outside, for the most part. Have you ever taken a long drive and then pretended you were behind the wheel of another car? Oh! c’mon, you know you have. I myself wish I could be driving and old Hot Rod Roadster, Deuce Coupe hot rod, Ford Mustang, Mercury coupe. Get behind the wheel and feel all alpha male like. I think I’d be more like Arnie Cunningham to be honest.

Alpha Male isn’t all bad. This outfit I have on comes from a store named Alpha Male. I had no idea this store even existed. Until I was opening old Second Life Birthday gifts from last year. Yes, yes.. I’m one of those people in Second Life that has an object folder full of stuff you never open and an inventory from hell. That’s a whole other can of worms we need to keep a tight lid on. I decided to see if it was still around. Yes Alpha Male is, the group is free to join, and they have two male gifts out. These gifts include a whole outfit and shoes. With the one I’m wearing I even got these glasses. The outfit it called Nobody But You, it comes with the Two tone gray Jersey with a tiger design on the front. These leather looking Rogue pants. It also comes with some black leather gold chain sneaker/boot type shoes. Which aren’t pictured, because they only come in Slink. You can make them fit if you alpha your feet. All in all not a bad haul: two complete outfits for free. That doesn’t often happen for guys in Second Life. So ladies grab your guy and point him in this direction. If you do ladies, this store is in the same location as their counter part. Alpha Female and they have gifts too. Guys that are reading this, stop by Alpha Male and check these gifts out. They even have a lucky letter board for the men.

If you don’t mind this pit stop is over. I’m gonna climb back into my Hot Rod and peel out. Yeah, right, I wish. Hey that’s why we’ve got Second Life, I can peel out, and drive any car I like. Smell that rubber and eat my dust people.

No more yielding than a dream

All a Dream

If we shadows have offended,
Think but this, and all is mended:
That you have but slumbered here,
While these visions did appear;
And this weak and idle theme,
No more yielding but a dream,
Gentles, do not reprehend.
If you pardon, we will mend.

 

It was all a dream upon Midsummer’s Night

The Midsummer Night’s Dream Hunt, that is. First my new gown. I am becoming a huge fan of Ari – Pari. Honestly, when I saw this designer was doing the Hunt I may have actually squeaked with a happy. For just 3L and a little hunting you get the beautiful gown with a HUD for eight colors of fabric and six metals for the belt. It’s just gorgeous.

Greetings FabFree.  Much like Juli, I have been sucked into the fervor surrounding the Second Life 17th Birthday. while there are considerably far few items for men, I have found at least one that is a must have for all the RPers. At least the bleak future/cyberpunks.

Future Perfect

This is the ‘Cyber Set’ from Zed for Men and it’s at the SL17B as your free gift. The set includes the vest, two cyber arms ( one left, one right) and a spine attachment. The pieces are all separate so you can wear all or just a piece or two. Any Cyber RP ladies could easily pick this set up simply for the arms and the spine. The set comes in the red I’m wearing as well as blue, cyan, orange, green and black. One note – I accessorized this vest with an applier long sleeved shirt and a visor from my closet, these do not come with the Cyber Set.
