Summer Nights

Coming Soon

There’s nothing prettier than looking out at the water at sunrise or nightfall. I’m spending my night at the beach, and I’m enjoying the atmosphere! I have a myriad of things to show you in my post today, including more beautiful items from FabFree at Fifteen and the Summer Camp Hunt, which were all used to create this fun beach look. Keep reading to get all the details!

Oh.My.Jawdrop.

Ari-Pari was a wee bit delayed putting out their FabFree at Fifteen offerings, so you may not have seen or picked up their items yet as they were added to the event page a week or so after the event started. It was so worth the wait, though. I absolutely love this bathing suit, which is their 15L offering. It includes a colour-changing hud with 10 options. Their free gift for all FabFree group members is a gorgeous glass bead choker that looks simply stunning with the swimsuit. The choker also includes a textue changing hud with 10 glass bead and 2 suede cord colour options. I think my jaw dropped a bit when I put these on. Bravo, Ariana!

Sizes Included (swimsuit)

  • Hourglass
  • Lara
  • Legacy
  • Freya
  • Kupra
  • Reborn

The beautiful nail polish you can see me wearing is a free gift for all FabFree group members from Eventyra for FabFree at Fifteen. I’ve been having a lot of fun wearing their nails while covering this event, as they are so nifty. When you open up the package, just add the HUD and click on your body creator’s logo. Then the HUD will open up several colour options for the nails. These ones are covered in gears and lace and they come in grey, gold and green options. These appliers work on your toenails too (see the detailed shot at the bottom of the post).

No Salvation

No Salvation

“Hell is empty and all the devils are here.” – William Shakespeare 

As we seem to be rapidly approaching my favorite holiday I was excited to see the new group gift at Caboodle. The Caboodle group gift is a short nun’s habit, which lends itself perfectly to creating a creepy demonic possession look. Inspired by the idea I added the new group gift tattoo by Letis, the Pumpkin Hunt gift by Blackstone at Swank, and some inexpensive Marketplace finds from Corvus, Mary, R.A.D. and Glow Up. I think this look would fit right in at just about any haunted house. Time to get terrifying!

Caboodle

Truly this nun’s habit group gift at Caboodle was the inspiration for creating my demonic nun look just in time for Halloween. The Caboodle group has a join fee of 100 linden. The habit can be repositioned, and sized. I wore it with a simple hair-base. Also, don’t forget to pick up the previous group gifts still available at Caboodle.

Letis

Letis put out this perfect-for-Halloween unisex spiderweb upper body tattoo as their latest group gift. The Letis group is free to join, so don’t miss out on this very well done tattoo.

Appliers/Layers Included: Omega Evolved, Maitreya, Slink, Legacy, Belleza, Signature, BOM Layers (35%,50%,75%100%)

Blackstone

I mentioned the Pumpkin Hunt happening at Swank in my recent post “Let Me Show You the Way.” The dress and horns I used for this look are from the Pumpkin Hunt gift by Blackstone. This gift includes a full look with a dress, horns, and a matching devil tail (not shown), as well as a HUD with several colors for the dress. You can pick this gift up for free at Swank. You’ll need the free Swank group tag, I’ll link that group below. This dress is fitted for Maitreya Lara only.

Marketplace Finds

The gifts from Caboodle and Letis were a good start for this scary nun I’d imagined, the Marketplace was helpful for much of the rest.

Corvus – No possessed being would be complete without darkened circles around the eyes. I picked up the Corvus Demon Eyeshadow BOM layer for 30 linden on the Marketplace.

Mary – I also found a Halloween gift by Mary from 2019 on the Marketplace. The little goth cross tattoo comes in an Omega applier and is 1 linden on the Marketplace.

Glow Up – For some added gore I picked up a little nose-bleed drip by Glow Up on the Marketplace for free. It comes in a BOM layer only.

R.A.D. – Finally, the bloody sewn-shut lips are a Marketplace dollarbie by R.A.D. This gory costume essential comes in BOM layers and an Omega applier.

Alright all you creeps and ghouls, I really hope you enjoy these freaky fun freebies and cheapies. It was a lot of fun putting this super creepy look together for Halloween. Have fun out there!

Evening Quiet

Thinking Late Thoughts

Hello hello Fab Free! Are you ready for the new week to start? I’m not so sure I’m ready for Monday so I’ve been avoiding thinking about it too much by taking full advantage of the limited time free group join at Carol G. For a few days only the Carol G group will be free to join. There are quite a few male and female free group gifts, most if not all of which have been recently updated to include BOM layers. Also, there is a male and a female MM board that changes frequently.

I picked up this pretty red henna style leg tattoo for free by participating in the group only MM Board at Carol G. Once again, the free group join is a limited time thing, so if you’ve been waiting to join the group now is the time.

Appliers/Layers Included: Omega, Belleza, Maitreya, Slink, Legacy, BOM Tattoo Layers

I also came across this cool tied tank top at gSpot. It’s a current group gift, and it comes with a hud that has 5 color choices. I really like the bold color choices, and the arcane-like symbols in the pattern are a definite vibe. The gSpot group has a join fee of just 69 linden.

Sizes Included: Belleza Freya, Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass

Beautiful Dreamer

Beautiful Dreamer

“All that we see or seem, is but a dream within a dream.” ~Edgar Allan Poe

I’m fairly fickle on the ideas of dreams and their meaning, though I admittedly spend a decent amount of time daydreaming and often have vivid dreams when I sleep. I suppose in a way we all get to live a dream we create here in Second Life. So here’s to all the dreamers out there, I hope only the good dreams come true. For now, I can help with some dreamy free and inexpensive finds!

CryBunBun

Only in Second Life would I dream of being this cute in a leather and lace bra and panty set. Leather does not generally scream “delicate underthings” to me, but it sure does look gorgeous. The set I have on is a free gift at CryBunBun aptly named “Mercy.” It comes in this “moon” black version shown, and a “sun” white. No group is needed for this cute freebie. It may however only be available for a limited time!

Sizes Included: Signature Alice, Maitreya Lara, Maitreya Lara Petite, MeshBody Legacy, MeshBody Legacy Perky

Supernatural 

To go with my afore mentioned delicate underthings, I picked up an equally gorgeous necklace set at Supernatural. It was news to me that they have an entire wall of 75 linden fatpacks. The packs are mostly jewelry, however there are some accessories as well. I am wearing part of the Heidi set. This particular set comes in gold and silver, each with several jewel color choices. The sets have 3 necklaces that can be worn together. What I have on are 2 of the 3 in the silver and black set. I took a snap of the wall of 75 linden goodness at Supernatural. There’s so much to choose from, you’re bound to find something you like.

Mister Razzor

Finally, if you’re on the hunt for new ink, which I always am, Mister Razzor has three female tattoos for just 40 linden each. The tattoo I am wearing is a full body tattoo called “Bella.” This tattoo comes in Omega appliers and BOM/Classic System Layers. The BOM layers, and appliers give the option of full or 75% opacity. No group is needed for the 40 linden price.

Appliers/Layers Included: Omega, BOM/Classic Layers

Swimsuit Season

Swimsuit Season

Swimsuit season appears to have happened suddenly as if summoned overnight. Then again, perhaps it’s just me and it’s been arriving just as it always does and I’ve simply forgotten to notice. I’m happy it’s here either way. For the first time in ages I find I am excited about the sunshine, eager to spend time outdoors, rather than dreading the heat. Summer is here, and we can always find ways to cool off. Speaking of which, I found two group gifts to help with cooling off as the temperatures rise in my part of the world. I picked up a cute swimsuit set from Mimikri, and a delicious looking citrus treat from Andika. I also snagged a summery floral tattoo at Dappa. Keep reading and I’ll dish about each of these fabulous group gifts, and of course list the credits at the end. Stay cool my friends, it’s swimsuit season.

Mimikri

Even with the join fee of 100 linden, I couldn’t resist this group gift bikini and swimsuit cover at Mimikri. To my delight it was worth every bit of the fee. The floral print bikini is pretty and the sheer swimsuit cover gives the set an almost elegant look. The pieces can be worn separately. and comes in the colors shown.

Sizes Included: Maitreya  Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Legacy

Andika

Citrus treats are a favorite of mine, especially in summer. This frozen lime confection is a free group gift at Andika. The highly detailed display acts as a dispenser also. It will auto attach a spoon and a held version of the ice cream treat via touch menu. The held items have a bento hold and eating animation. The Andika group is free to join.

Dappa

This delicate floral upper body tattoo is a free group gift as well. It comes from Dappa, and it includes system/BOM layers and several applier options. Each gives the choice of a fresh or faded look. The Dappa group is free to join at this time, and there is more than one group gift available. Along with this beautiful floral tattoo, there are a few male/unisex tattoos. Don’t miss them!

Appliers Included: Signature, Omega, Slink, Maitreya, Legacy, Belleza *BOM/Classic System Layers also included
