The First Dive

The First Dive

We’re inching toward the time of year where I generally refuse to be out of a bathing suit.  Well, that’s not entirely true.  I refuse to be out of a bathing suit when I want to be in a bathing suit, and then I get fed up and start changing my clothes for the 50th time in a day.  Then I’ll be back in a bathing suit by the end of my little tantrum.  All I know for sure is, I’ve got a pretty one to show you and there are deals afoot!

Oodles of Fun

Caboodle is having a spring cleaning sale and plenty of pretty, holographic (and non-holographic) stuff is up for grabs at dramatically reduced prices.  I picked up this awesome top and bottom (which can be a bathing suit…or something else) for just 25L!  That’s pretty sweet, if you ask me.  There’s lots more on sale, just waiting for you to discover it.  The sale at Caboodle is only running until May 2nd so don’t wait too long!

I love to create characters for my photos.  In second life you can become anything you want to!  (well, that is true in real life too, but not to the fantasy extent that it is in second life!)  It really helps when you have so many wonderful creators making such amazing things for us to use in our photos.  Take for instance my photo today.  MOoH! has a 50L Unicorn Gacha with these amazing unicorns in it.  Some are display, some are animated and have poses, all of them are beautiful!  Which prompted me to put on this lovely gown from Flowerdreams (via the Swank Event which runs from the 7th of each month to the end of the month) and take some unicorn photos (what else?).

As I said, these unicorns can be found in a happy little gacha over at MOoH!.  The key is below:

Sooo cute right?  The pose I am doing comes with that particular unicorn (the white animated standing one).

Baby Please Come Home

Baby Please Come Home
They’re singing Deck The Halls
But it’s not like Christmas at all
I remember when you were here
And all the fun we had last year

Staying Home for the Holidays

I know many of us are missing our nearest and dearest these days, but let’s not get too down about it all.  I often think about how lucky we are to have the technology to be able to see our family from afar, and I choose to focus on that.  The other thing that keeps me happy is the fact that so many designers are super generous, handing out amazing gifts.  Trompe L’Oeil have been consistently amazingly generous, and they’ve done it again, this time with the completely free Cecilia cottage.  It’s sooooo nice!  I’m totally going to pull up everything I have on my land to start over with this cute cottage.  At 53LI, it’s pretty light on the prims for the size and detail as well.  Head on over to the Trompe L’Oeil mainstore and click on the vendor just by the front doors, and it will be yours for FREE!  There’s also a sweet bench for free too.

On the 6th Day of Christmas…

I’ve been harping on incessantly about how Christmas isn’t over yet, and I stand by my rantings.  Today is the 6th day of Christmas and Lybra brought to me…. an awesome gift calendar!  for each of the 12 days of Christmas, they’re giving their group members (the group is free to join) a new gift.  I am showing off day 1’s shoes (super awesome platforms sized for Belleza, Kupra, Legacy, Maitreya, Slink and Tonic) and day 3, which is a classic grey denim shift dress.  Lybra are so generous with their goodies – you’ll find lots of group gifts on the wall too, as well as some lucky chairs (and a FabFree gift too!).
UPDATE:  Lybra is back – Enjoy!

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!

Party Time

Fabfree Post: Party Hard

Weekend Off Duty

I’ve spent the weekend and most of the beginning of the week off duty and in my undisclosed location again. However, all the way out here word got to me about LIVIA‘s free group gift I had to jump on a train, boat, and airplane to get to the shop before it ran out!

The Lauren Hoops are a pair of timeless earrings that come with a hud with 8 metal options, resizer, and the ability to turn materials on and off. Not too shabby for a free pair of earrings, the better part is the group is free to get them. So it is only costing you time that’s going by too fast by you reading this! Stop reading, take the next train to LIVIA, and go snag those earrings!

Salon Time

After months of being cooped up I’ve decided its time to chop it all off, and by chop it off I mean just a trim 😉 Between the hot summer and the months of distancing, I’ve been slacking on taking care of it. Like many others, it goes up in a messy bun and I’m ready for the day.

Caboodle has these adorable lucky letter boards that rotate gifts after a winner claims their gift =) I was able to snag this adorable outfit for free, granted their Lucky Letter Boards are set to the group, which is a cost of L$100. The Raven outfit comes in a very lovely silver/gray the top and bottoms are separate so you can wear your favorite piece with other Caboodle items.

++Twilight++ has a super cute Cellphone out for their Stay at Home Group Gift!

So run by their shop and snag this amazing gift, the quality of the item is amazing and thank you to the creator for giving this away free!!

FabFree: The socks are staying on

Happy Christmas Eve to one and all, and if you aren’t celebrating Christmas, I still wish you a happy eve! Today in my blog post I am featuring news about a free instore group credit at Kaithleen’s (and I’ll tell you about what I picked up), as well as some adorable free holiday socks by Caboodle!

It’s on Kaithleen!

Kaithleen’s has put out a really generous holiday gift for her inworld group members!  VIPs (and it’s only 50L to join if you are not currently a member!) can head to the reception desk and click the credit sign that will load you up with a gift card worth 300L!  You can use it on purchases in the store, or at events!  I picked up the Franzy Bodysuit at Winter Spirit that was priced well under the 300L limit and I still have a fair balance left on the card for future purchases 🙂

I’m not kidding.. the socks stay on

For real…  If I had socks like this in real life, they would stay on, and I mean throughout everything because don’t they look so snuggly and warm and totally adorable too? How could I take them off?   You can pick these Holiday Edition Ballerina Socks as a free gift at the Caboodle Display at Shop & Hop until January 6th.

Hey there Fab Free’rs! I’ve got a quick group gift from Caboodle to share with you for this post. Really, this loose-fitting crop top by Caboodle is just too cute to not share. It comes in a few sizes, and includes a texture change hud that lets you change the color/texture of the top and the sleeves. I love the shiny almost holographic choices, and there is a super cute illustration done by an associate of the Caboodle clothing designer.

Caboodle - Valerie Crop Top - Group GiftTo get your copy of this cool top you’ll need to go to Caboodle and join the in-world group. The group has a join fee of 100 linden and this time. There are several group gifts currently available. This gift and the others are all waiting for behind the desk at the entrance.

Holographic Honey

Holography Honey

I’ve had conversations with people about the awesomeness that is holographic clothing.  I’ve probably expounded my beliefs several times here on the blog about it all, and I’m sure you’re all sick to death of me singing the praises of anything vaguely reflective and purpleish.  I just get all the vibes of magic, the seaside and the 80’s all wrapped into one awesome little package, and since those are three of my favourite things, I don’t see how it could possibly be a bad thing.

A Little Taste of Magic

Caboodle have just put up a really sweet gift on Marketplace for just 1L.  You get this beautiful holographic dress that slips ever so sultrily off the shoulders.  It also features an A-Line skirt, which you may have guessed I approve of heartily because of the name.  Well, and the shape is pretty awesome too.  To get yours, just head over to Caboodle’s Marketplace store and it will be yours!

You really can’t say no to purple, amirite?

The Perennial Maximalist

The Perennial Maximalist

Everyone always talks about simplicity.  I am a proponent of this on certain days, to be sure,  however sometimes what one needs to be is a maximalist.   There’s nothing wrong with surrounding yourself with your favourite things.  I like a good overflowing collection of pretty baubles, or being surrounded by all the glitter and gorgeousness I can muster.   You know, like a deep pile rug and vases full of marabou feathers and just one more lip gloss.  The aging, weathered glamour calls out to me sometimes, or perhaps it’s just a little pvc skirt and a new hairstyle!

Smug as Can Be

Mug has a new group gift out!  This extremely mini PVC skirt is slightly insane in all the right ways.  You can make it into the perfect weird outfit with just a bit of imagination.  You’ll most probably need a little layer underneath though if you’re planning on not shocking the neighbours.  To get your own little skirt, just join the Mug group for 250L and head on over to the shop and click on the vendor.  There are a bunch of other gifts there while you’re at it!

Sizes

  • Maitreya
  • Belleza
  • Sking

Nothing But the Truth

Time for a new VIP gift from Truth!  Horizon is a long messy ponytail with several different bang options.  You can add or remove the bobby pins too to make this look all your own.  And as always with Truth VIP hairstyles, it’s a full fatpack of colours!  You can get yours by joining the Truth VIP group for 350L and then taking a peek in group notices for your copy!

Here’s to maximalism!
