Innocent Until Proven Evil

Innocent until Proven Evil

When hinges creak in doorless chambers, and strange and frightening sounds echo through the halls. Whenever candlelights flicker where the air is deathly still — that is the time when ghosts are present, practicing their terror with ghoulish delight!

-Haunted Mansion Ride, Disney parks

Hey gang!

I’m back with some ghoulish delights of my own, found at the new style Arcade Event.  The event has been updated from the old style gachas into a new system of its own, which has you grabbing a HUD as you enter, and which you wear while you shop.  When you find a machine you want to play, you connect it to the machine. (don’t spend fifteen minutes trying to find it on the machines like I did at first, each machine is on a base and at the front of each base is two buttons, one to connect your HUD.)

Once you are connected, it will show you which item has been chosen for you to play for.  If you want that item, you pay the machine (if you try to pay it without the HUD, it will refuse your money and send it back to you.), if not then disconnect and head to another machine.  If you do play, you will get that item and the HUD will show you a new, random choice.

If you want to try again, you have to wait until the next day, as it will reset at midnight, and you can get new random numbers.  If you try again that same day, you will get the same numbers.  It’s kind of fun, really (and a bit addicting!).

So I lucked out on this play, the Mikunch machine where I got this cute dress (you choose the size you want to play for on certain machines), I chose Maitreya cause that’s what body I use.   It comes with a HUD giving you a handful of color choices (black, white, red, pink).  It’s only 75L a play.

This dress gave me sort of a “Bad Seed” sort of vibe, perfect for Halloween.  She is just a sweet girl, right?  Right?!  Only time will tell!

Happy Haunting!

The Twisted Hunt is a long tradition for hunters in SL.  It is notorious for being difficult, a real challenge.  Many (not all, thankfully for yours truly!) designers will lay out endless decoys making the prizes elusive and making the hunter *really* work for them.  This makes it a bit tricky for those of us who want to blog hunt items so we can show you what’s out there, as hunts can be time sensitive.  But by-golly it’s a tough job but *someone* has to do it!  We fab free sisters are always willing to go the extra mile for our devoted readers and fellow freebie fanatics.  😉

And so (yes I am starting a sentence with the word “and”, cause I’m a rebel like that!) in the spirit of all the hunters that have come before me, and those that will come after me, I bring you an absolutely stunning find from the Twisted Hunt.  This entire ensemble, headpiece included is what you will find via the free Twisted Hunt when you go to FMB Fashion.  The glow around this gown is no trick of photography, no filter has been applied, this dress comes with the soft glow you see here, making you feel absolutely radiant and ethereal!

This dress fits:

  • Fitmesh
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Physique
  • Curvy
  • Fine
  • Venus
  • Volumptuous

My coolio magic sphere is a free gift (with poses, though I used a different pose.  shhhhh) amongst others at Icons of Style, that require no group.  Lots of cute poses and some props for both the ladies and the men!  Well worth a visit, Persefona is there too, making it one of my favorite places to go when I need something fun for a photo.

Nearly the weekend, hang in gang!

Woman on a Man Hunt

Coming Soon

This week I will be showing a lot of love for the Men Only hunt. This is an awesome event! There are great prizes for the guys on this hunt, and also some unisex items that can be enjoyed by all genders.

More about the Men Only Hunt

The Men Only Hunt is the latest event run by Flair For Events, the same folks who organize the Women Only hunt and many other great events throughout the year. All of the hunt items on are free, and you are looking for the little bird at each store. To get the LMs, go grab the hunt hud at this LM and grab it for free by joining the Men Only Hunt hunters group. Here is the join code for the group: secondlife:///app/group/7f60c53b-ab9b-072b-b577-45288557083f/about

Once you have the HUD attached, simply click the map to TP to each location and once you are there, click the “click for a hint!” button on the hud, and it will post your hints in local chat.

The Prizes!

Now it’s time for me to share some of my fave prizes on the hunt. 

The amazing melty pizza and the burger I am holding are the free hunt gift at Junk Food, and the gift also includes hotdogs to hold too! These foods are inspired by Memphis eats, which I have never tried but they are cheesy, melty and delicious looking. 

Junk Food - Messy Memphis Eats

Another amazing gift on the hunt I had to show is this catmobile at Jeys. I just love it! It reminds me of a crossover between a beetle and catwoman. So funny and cute. I can’t believe it’s free!

MOH2021-GIFT
My amazing hairstyle is the free hunt prize at Ayashi as well, and it comes in a full fatpack of colours. The hair can be worn on both male and female avatars.

Enjoy, FabFree!

Unicorns and Daydreams

Unicorns and Daydreams

I know we’re all starting to come to terms with the end of Gacha in Second Life, but I’m still a bit sad about it all.  I know many people aren’t too upset to see the back of gachas, but I will totally miss the opportunity to get some fun things for pretty cheap.  With that, we’re also saying goodbye to several gacha-only events, along with the fun gifts that come with them.  Le Sigh!

Say Goodbye

The Gacha Life has always been a fun event, filled with lots of awesome gachas and of course some free gifts!  This will be their last round, and you’ll find a few free gifts at each display.  I picked up this oversized sweatshirt by Love Lace.  It comes with an HUD to change to 4 different colour combinations and I just love the unicorns!  Don’t wait too long, The Gacha Life is running until August 30th.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Venus

More Free Hair!

My cute shaggy bob hairstyle is the latest free gift from Ayashi.  It comes in a full fatpack of colours, and all you have to do to get it is join their free group.  Note that there are two groups at Ayashi – the free group and the VIP group.  This hairstyle is a gift in the free group.  Woohoo!

See you magical peeps around!

Fan(cy) Twins!

Coming Soon to Fab Free

Heyyyy gang,

Aline and I got together this week to do a photo just for our fabfree fan club! (this is a pun.)  We hope you guys love it!  FabFree would be nothing without its faithful followers and for this we are soooo grateful!  We had a blast doing this pic for everyone!  So much fun to get to work with my Fab Free Sisters!

So we got together to show you a pose from Seetra Poses, they have a 50L gacha at the current Orsy Event (Runs from June 9 to June 23).  It’s all beautiful poses with Sakura fans (the fans come with it), so so cute for photos!  Seetra has some of my favorite poses, so if you are looking for some fun photo ops, check them out for sure! The key for the gacha is below:

Seetra Fans

The Gacha has:

41 items
8 Common poses x Fans in 5 colours (40 common combinations)
1 Rare Duo pose – includes texture change Fans (5 Colours)

We are also wearing matching dresses from Zenith, this dress is a free group gift (the group is free to join, and they have some gorgeous group gifts!).  Aline and I are so much alike (we’ve lost count of our “me too’s!”) we were concerned we might pick the same color to wear, luckily we didn’t.   This dress comes in 5 colors, also has an optional Faux Fur Stole with HUD and fits Maitreya.

More soon!

Anand

coming soon

Sometimes things just fall together.  That’s exactly what happened this time after I visited the 77th Street Event and found this sexy little dress by Faida.  It was only 7L!  Can you even imagine???  In fact, there are a BUNCH of vendors there that have an item for 7L for you, so its practically bliss!  The title of this post, Anand, is Sanskrit for bliss.

My headdress is from Ayashi and it’s a 75L gacha (I have been trying to get the rare hair from there, but it keeps eluding me!), the necklace from Fabia is a 75L gacha as well.

Anyhoo, the dress comes in:

  • Legacy
  • Maitreya & Petite
  • Tonic Fine & Fine Mini

Just as a side note, does anyone else feel reminded of Mary Poppins with my shadow in this picture?  lol.  If only I had worn a skirt!  No offense Mary Poppins, but I think my umbrella is much cuter than yours!

Sayanara gang!  The quest for freebies and bahgains continues…
