Just a Delicate Snowflake

Delicate Snowflake

Hello dear Fab Free’rs! It’s been a minute since I said thank you for being here, so thank you so much! Really, there’d be no point to the Fab Free blog without you. That said, I’m happy I get to be here too! I still cannot get over how much there is going on this Holiday Season. I don’t know why, it is probably like this every year, but each year it always seems pleasantly overwhelming. So many gifts and inexpensive finds, so little time! haha Yep, it’s a good problem to have. For today’s post I picked up a few gifts at Redeux and I couldn’t resist another stop at The Cart Sale. As always, I’ll have all the information below.

P.S. Redeux ends on the 21rst so don’t wait! 

The Romper – This little black romper with ruffled shorts is the free Redeux group gift by The Forge. Simply wear your Redeux group tag and click the gift waiting at The Forge’s event booth. The Redeux group is free to join if you’re not a member. This cute little number comes in a single unlabeled mesh size. It fit Pru’s Maitreya Lara body almost perfectly, so that would be my “size” guess.

The Facial Piercings – Axix also has a gift at this round of Redeux. Their free gift is this set of unique triangle shaped facial piercings positioned below the eyes and under the lower lip. They come in the gold color shown, and can be resized and positioned. I would definitely consider them to be a unisex accessory. Again you will need the Redeux group tag to get this gift.

The Snowflake Tattoos – These pretty snowflake upper body tattoos are one of 10 linden items available at The Cart Sale by InnerJoy Love Tattoos. The tattoo comes in an Omega applier, a Maitreya applier, and a classic system tattoo layer. I love when designers continue to include classic layers with their applier products!

Here are the details, enjoy!

If I Cannot Fly Let Me Sing

Green Finch & Linnet Bird
Hello Fab Free’rs! If you haven’t been to the current round of the Redeux Event, you need to go. This round will end in a few days and there are tons of free gifts. Each of the participating designers has a free gift set out. You’ll find clothing, and decor, and everything in between! All you need to do is join the free-to-join Redeux VIP group. Once you’re wearing your Redeux tag, you can click the gift bags at each booth and your free gift will be sent to you. So of course I picked a few I really liked to show you. It was actually really hard to pick just these four items, there are so many awesome gifts. I hope you like them as much as I do!

The Horns – Of course I picked horns as one of the free Redeux gifts to share with you! These pretty horns with the little flowers are by Evil in the Box. They come in 5 color variations and can be resized.

The Choker – This beaded choker with a cross charm by Vibes is beautifully detailed. It is their free gift at Redeux. The choker has resize scripts for easy fitting, and comes with a color change hud that lets you change various parts of the choker using several preset color choices.

The Dress – I know you can’t see the full dress in the photo, but this pretty teal gown by Faida is floor-length. I thought the yellow gold embellishment on the front made it look a bit regal. The dress is Faida’s free gift at Redeux. It comes in a single mesh size.

The Tattoos – Finally, the beautiful tattoos on Pru’s arms are the free Redeux gift from Iron & Rose.  They come in 3 variations, fresh, faded, and worn. Each one is a separate Omega Applier.

Warrior Fey

I have been led merrily up the garden path today. The Gacha Garden, that is!

Warrior Fey

The Gacha Garden is a month long Gacha event set in a lovely fairy tale garden and I did find a Fairy. A tough Warrior Fairy archer who will fill you full of arrows if you set a foot wrong in her forest. This is the Warrior fairy set from Astralia. The set includes the gorgeous Rare wings with a HUD to change the colors, a quiver in 2 colors, a set of arrows, a single arrow. the antlers and a set of small wings. And last but most special: a vine entwined bow.  I say special because the bow is only available if you play the single machine twenty times. The special twenty play items are called “Seeds of Inspiration”. And each machine has one. Check out the website for all the details on this special play.

Warrior Fey

As I was wandering the garden path, I saw this lovely golden tiara at the Axix machine and I knew it would go perfectly with my warrior fairy. There are three designs available for the Zaria Crown, one with just the crown, one with the crown and the flowers ( with a color change HUD) that I’m showing you and the Rares which have the flowers and a drape of pearls.

Warrior Fey

Last but not least, I needed an action pose for my warrior girl. NC had this well built pose called “Hunting” on the Marketplace for a mere 10L. I think it works really well. Then I needed a good pose to show off the new bow…  Verocity had the ‘Isis Pose’ set on sale for only 1L on their Marketplace. This is a sixe pose set that includes it’s own prop bow. I think I’m set.

 

The Gacha Garden Event runs until November 30, so don’t delay! Your Taxi to the Garden Gacha Event -> http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/The%20Gacha%20Garden/130/224/21

Twisted

We know we are alive
But could soon be dead

As breathing
Is the only thing
That divides
The living and the dead

The Twisted Hunt is a shadow … a Spectre…. a ghost…  pale cubes spinning driving us mad.  There are few hints, a thousand decoys…. But, oh the gifts and Gachas and side games.  You only have until April 5th to find all the little cubes.

Once Upon a Time…

BrothersGrimm1_001

Hello FabFree Folks!

I’ve been on the hunt again! This time I delved into the darker world of fairy tales with the Brothers Grimm Hunt.  This is a 2L per prize hunt and it has some very nifty things.  First up is the mesh Peasant dress from ..elation..  This was a new to me store and I very much enjoyed checking it out. The dress is very well made and moves nicely. I bet it would be perfect for a fantasy RP.  It was the perfect costume to find Potpourri Designs “Poisoned Apple on a Stone Pillar.” The pillar is a great prop for a picture or an RP but it is more than just a prop. It comes in several versions with and without the apple.  Completing the scene is the “Aponi” hair style from EMO-tions. This is one of the several in-store Gachas at the mainstore. I’m wearing the “naturals 3”, a pretty taffy blonde.

reshoot_001

One nice thing about this particular Hunt is there are a varity of styles for the prizes. I found the fantasy/medieval dress then found this funky tank top/short dress. This is B-UniQ’s “The Raven”.  Again, so nicely made!  I’m not daring enough to wear it alone so I paired it with these dollarbie black leggings from [Eve n Better] found on the Marketplace.  Topping off my look is the Argrace Welcome gift hair “Minato” which Tiana Omizu and Love Trill  showed us here.

A Macabre Case of A Violent Seduction

October is probably my most favourite month and not just because of the fun that goes along with the lead up to and the dressing up for Halloween, but because its the first full month that feels that Autumn has finally arrived and you get that lovely chill in the air that means you can start snuggling under blankets and cosy cardigans. Today I am showing you a few more Halloweeny themed things.. In Second Life, its one of the major holidays with heaps of Fairs, Gachas, Hunts and store gifts all with fun spooky themes. You can never fail to find some really amazing freebies!

The new free group gift from AZUL makes such a great little dress that would be suitable for a witchy or vampire themed outfit. You could even make a cute little demon girl while wearing it! The sleeves are seperate option which I think is a great idea. I love little details like wings and horns as you have seen from previous posts and you can find both of these as freebies! My horns are the Horns Flowers freebie by PANIK that you can find at The Seasons Story while the Dark Angel Wings are a freebie by AXIX that you can find at The Bloody Horror Fair. I really love the little gothy balloons that are a current subscriber gift at Label Motion. There are three different balloon sets with and without poses which are really cute.

Untitled

My amazing shoes are the Halloween Smile Shoes for SLink High Feet that are the new group gift by Macabre and are the perfect spooky footwear to add a little horror flair to any outfit! To get these, join the group and then click the little coffin box that is on the steps near the stage!

Untitled

The necklace I am wearing is by Vintage Touch and is available in their gacha at the FabFree Halloween Gacha event at the FabFree HQ. It is L$50 per pull to play and is available in eight different version .. below I am showing four that I managed to win!

Untitled

I showed the free Poppy skin from Glam Affair that is also found at The Seasons Story on my post here.. below you can see how it looks without wearing the Loud Mouth mesh lips that I wore in the pictures before. Also you can see Sadist Rings that are a group gift by Violent Seduction. There is a L$50 join fee but its so worth it as there are a couple of other great gifts to pick up also.

Untitled

The amazing eyes I am wearing in the picture are the Salvatore Eyes by Random.Matter that you can also find at The Bloody Horror Fair. These are the bloody version which comes with make up layer options to make it look like you are crying bloody tears. They arent free but I just love them so I had to show you them. Lastly, The nails I am wearing in the pictures are a group gift of Metallic Nails by NI.JU! There are a lot of colours to choose from as you can see from the HUD below!

Bettie’s got your cupcake!

This weekend seems to be all about the quickie posts for me, because here is another. Well, it’s only a quickie because you only have 2 days left to grab all the goodies from our very own FabFree Birthday Cupcake hunt, and I am showing you a few things you may be missing out on if you haven’t already finished this super easy hunt.

pinup1

The 2 gifts I am showing you are from 1-800-Bettie’s, and Asteria Creations. First up is this lovely vintage-feel gown from 1-800-Bettie’s.  The *1-800-B*Fishtail Gown in Plain Pink is one for all you non-mesh lovers! It is all system layers, with one of the best fitting system layer skirts I have worn in a long time! It also comes with a Tango applier for the top. I just love the way the ruffles on the bottom of the dress sweep the ground, and you wanna know a secret? I’m not wearing any shoes with this dress, and no-one would ever know. As long as you all don’t tell, of course 🙂

pinup2

The second gift I have on is from Asteria Creations, and is a lovely, fresh-faced skin with pale pink lips and eyeshadow, with a hint of yellow on the upper eyelids. The *Asteria Creations – Myia Skin – Sahpe PALE, comes with its own shape, which I thought would be fun to show you beside a shot with my own shape. I am on the left, and the shape included is on the right, and I will admit, I am a touch self-conscious about how far my ears stick out with a slick, pulled back hairstyle, and the other shape really makes it obvious! LOL. The eyebrows on this skin are a touch paler than what I am showing, as I just had to try out the brow out makeup, I showed you before HERE, again.

So, I will tell you, to get the skin gift, you are going to have to head over to the Asteria Creations main store, which is located HERE, as there was a tiny snafu in placement 🙂 Don’t worry though, I think it is worth the trip, and it was still pretty easy to find 🙂 The 1-800-Bettie’s gift though, is located at the FabFree HQ, along with so many other goodies. Just in case you haven’t seen it yet, here is the link to the Official Hunt Page, with preview pics of all the prizes, as well as links to prizes that we blogger’s have shown off. You only have until the 16th to get these gifts, so you better get over there right now! Seriously, right this second, well, ok, maybe finish reading my post, and then fly as fast as you can. LOL.

OK lovlies, that is all I have for the moment, so I am going to take my leave. Until next time, TTFN! *waves*

Hello…Mr. Tumnus…are you here?

With all the Fantasy type events and hunts going on right now, I figured it was high time I did a post that was fantasy related.

Narni1

The mesh Temperance dress I am wearing, as well as the fantastic Woodland Lampost I am standing beside are what you will receive when you find the butterfly at the MASH Fashion store. They are both included in the hunt prize for the Midsummer Nights Dream Hunt, and if you would like more information, and/or hints, here’s the link to the KastleRock Hunts Blog which has all that info and more. Every prize on this hunt is L$1, but every store is supposed to be supplying something for everyone, whether it be like MASH, with a women’s gift and a unisex gift, or a male gift, some even have gifts for petites. I love hunts where everyone can be happy 🙂

NarniaCollage3

Staying within my fantasy mood, I hit up this round of The Fantasy Room, and found this beautiful headband from GED. The Ethnic Swirls headband, in silver, is only L$50, but if you prefer gold, there is also a gold version available. I love the delicate swirl right in the middle of my brow, I feel like an elf princess with this piece, I just need the pointy ears now!

My last stop was at a more sci-fi event, The Nexus. There, I played the Nova Gacha for Origami SLink nailpolish, at just L$25 a play. I lucked out and actually got matching peach finger and toe polish after only 4 tries! I really like the pixellated look of this polish, and can see myself wearing it quite often. I’ve included a picture of the vendor so you can see the different colour combinations that are available.

Narnia2

So, what do you think? As I was taking my picture, being photo-bombed by a roaming ferret, I was expecting characters from the Narnia books to just pop out of the trees.  Fantasy is one of my favourite genre’s, and I really should do more posts like this. Expect more from me!

Until next time, I’m going to go check and see if that ferret can talk 🙂 TTFN!
