A Vintage Goth

Coming Soon

I have a bit of a “vintage goth” look going on today, so I decided to chill and take a picture by this gorgeous stained glass window inside this spooky, dark-lit room. I just love this type of style so I’m excited to share these finds with you today. 

FabFree Gift @ Furtacor

First up is this awesome Jesabel Dress, which is a free fatpack at Furtacor. This one is a FabFree group gift, and it’s simply gorg! Simply join our FabFree group and click the package at Furtacor. If you are having trouble getting to the gift room at Furtacor, take the teleport board to the location that says gifts. There is  LOAD of free gifts from this designer, and a few for just the FabFree group members! Yay! I absolutely fell in love with the emerald and black checkered pattern of this dress, and there is a load of other colours and patterns included with Jesabel that can be changed via a hud. 

Sizes Included

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Belleza Freya, Isis & Venus
  • Legacy Female & Perky
  • Signature Alice
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass

Dark Vintage

There are a few more freebies added to this look to create that dark, vintage vibe. I will list them to make it easier on the eyes!

  • The gorgeous pearls around my neck are a dollarbie at Lorien. They’re beautes. 
  • The pearl headband is yet another free group gift at Cae. Remember that Cae is closing at the end of the month, so make sure you go over there and get all the gifties before they disappear! The headband can be resized. 
  • The spiky hoop earrings are a free lucky board gift at Sn@tch, no group required. 
  • The adorable rainbow eyes are a free gift on the Marketplace by Nimu. I am wearing the BOM version of the eyes, but these also include appliers for Genus, Lelutka, and Omega. 
  • The gorgeous black lipstick comes from an amazing 1L deal on the marketplace. This is a lipstick applier made specifically for Lelutka Evolution heads made by Bellucci. The “Her Glossiness” pack comes in several other natural lip gloss tones tones!

Enjoy, FabFree!

No Goodbyes

No Goodbyes

“How lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard.” – A.A. Milne (Winnie-the-Pooh)

It’s been a little over 7 years since I started blogging for Fab Free. Love Trill took a chance on an eager-to-learn wanna-be fashionista with no blogging experience and limited photography skills. I’m forever grateful she did. Not only did I learn new things, best of all it’s through this blog, Fabulously Free in SL, that I’ve made some of my most cherished personal connections. The kind that I hope against hope will last a lifetime. I’m lookin’ at you, my fellow bloggers, past and present. In a round about way, it’s even through blogging for Fab Free that I found a kind of love that I had not even imagined.

Needless to say, the last 7 years have meant a lot to me, more than heartfelt words, or poignant quotes could ever express. I want to say thank you also to those of you who read the blog regularly, and have taken a moment over the years to show appreciation for the hard work and dedication that goes in to a blog like Fab Free. After more than 15,000 blog posts, I feel it’s time for me to say farewell to blogging for Fabulously Free in SL and take time for new adventures. Thank you for everything, from the bottom of my heart.

No Goodbyes

For this, my last post, I do of course have some freebies and fabulous finds to share with you. I picked up the group gifts at the latest round of Cosmopolitan. There are two gifts this time, an upper body tattoo by AuricA, and a set of stunning eyes by Arte. I also of course picked up the Happy Weekend Sale item by Muniick again this week. Seriously, I just could not resist!

AuricA

This upper body tattoo by AuricA is free with your Cosmo Sales group tag. The group is free to join, and the gift is waiting on a signboard just inside the Cosmo event entrance. The tattoo comes in a single applier hud, that has appliers for Slink, Belleza, Maitreya, TMP, and Omega compatible bodies.

Arte 

I think these eyes by Arte are really beautiful. They have an ethereal look to them in my opinion. They also happen to be a free group gift at the Cosmo event. Again the event group is free to join, I’ll link it down below. These free eyes come in 8 colors that range from natural looking to otherworldly. They are also in several appliers, a set of mesh eyes, and BOM layers so anyone can wear them. Also, there are small, medium, and large options for each eye-color.

Included: Catwa Applier, Omega Applier, Bakes on Mesh Layers, Mesh Eyes + Alpha Layer

Muniick

Alright, I might have an issue with collecting furniture as of late. I’m not at all mad about it though! This weekend (today is the last day!) Muniick has their French Revival Armchair and Ottoman set for 60 linden as part of the Happy Weekend Sale. This set is copy, so you can set out multiples. There are also color change options, and so many poses I couldn’t give you an accurate count. No group is required to get the discount price.

Happy Weekend - 60L!

Possessed

Possessed

Hello There Fab Free’rs! Once again I’m feeling very in the spooky spirit of the season. I a few more of the many many many Halloween Shop & Hop gifts. I created this almost pretty possessed look using the gift skin from YS&YS, the gift dress from Luas, and the septum piercing gift from RAWR!. I really hope you have some fun with these freebies.

YS&YS

I can’t help but love this free skin from YS&YS at the Halloween Shop & Hop event. Even with her scarred face, she’s still a pretty chick. This would be such a fun skin to create a story around. This free gift includes BOM layer full skins, face only BOM layers. There are also variations to suit Genus, Lelutka, and Catwa heads. There are also two pairs of BOM layer eyes, the “blind” eyes shown and a creepy cool black pair.

Luas 

This skeleton print dress is the free gift at the Halloween Shop & Hop by Luas. The “Donna” dress comes in a full fatpack with lots of HUD based color choices. Even with the exposed shoulders the dress has an almost cozy look to it that makes it a cool addition to any fall wardrobe.

Sizes Included: Belleza Freya, Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass, MeshBody Legacy & Perky

RAWR!

Lastly, the planchette septum piercing from RAWR! was just the added touch this look needed. It’s also free at the Halloween Shop & Hop event. Included with the piercing is a color change HUD that gives you several options for the metal ring and the planchette part of the piercing.

Starlight

Hello hello Fab Free’rs! I picked up a few group gifts recently that got me thinking about makeup. I love makeup. While I don’t believe makeup is something most people need, I do believe in the absolute fun of wearing it. I think it’s creative, and even artful at times. That said, I do feel pretty, and I think my look for this post is both fun and creative. The group gifts I’ve used to create this look come mostly from Ives Beauty, YOSHI Eyes, and POUT! Keep reading for all the details.

Ives Beauty 

My pretty lip color is part of a generous free group gift lip applier set group gift at Ives Beauty called Ravenous Tint. It comes in a range of nude pinks and purples. The best part, until August 21st the Ives Beauty group is free to join. You know what that means, don’t wait!

Appliers Included: Catwa HD Lips, Genus, Lelutka Evolution

YOSHI Eyes

Purple is one of my very favorite colors. I can remember wishing I had lavender eyes when I was a little girl. So in a way these bright blue/purple hued group gift eyes from YOSHI are a childhood dream come true. The YOSHI store group is free to join. In this free gift you’ll get appliers, a pair of mesh eyes, and BOM eyes.

Appliers Included: Catwa, Omega, Lelutka (BOM & Mesh Eyes also Included) 

POUT! 

Stars have always been attractive to me. So I couldn’t help but want this pretty set of little star face freckles from POUT!, especially considering they are a free group gift. I think they look sweet and give a touch of whimsy to your makeup. These stars come in several colors and are BOM only. The POUT! group is free to join as well.
