Road Trip to Nowhere in Particular

Road Trip

Hello hello Fab Free, I hope you’re all surviving first life well enough. As for Second Life, Blue and I decided to throw a few things in a bag and jump in the car for a much-needed getaway. Like most of us, we decided we could use a little change of scenery. This little diner was an impromptu stop along the way on our road trip to nowhere in particular. We got out stretch our legs, take in some scenery, grab a bite to eat, and of course take a few photos. After all, is it really a vacation if you don’t have a few social media worthy photos? Hah, just kidding.

The pose we used for this snapshot is a free Stay at Home Club gift from The Owl. This free couples pose by The Owl comes with pose balls and individual pose animations. No group is needed for the Stay at Home Club gifts. My t-shirt is a free Stay at Home Club gift as well. I picked it up at Sass. The over-sized casual tee by Sass says “Actually, I can.” and comes in the color shown, and has a matching pair of panties included. The last of the Stay at Home Club gifts for this post is a set of eyes Blue is wearing from Madame Noir, which are of course free. Blue’s short-sleeve button-down shirt is also a free gift. It comes from Ascend and is free for all SLF&O group members. The men’s short from Ascend comes in the color and print shown, and requires the free-to-join SL Frees & Offers group tag.

Through Anything

Through Anything

No matter what, my guy and I can make it through anything. Through thick and through thin, through the crashing of planes, the exploding of bombs, a new world regime! Anything at all could happen, and we’d come out on top, and look awesome while doing so. Okay, I admit that was a bit dramatic, but thanks to Second Life we can live through our stories. Thanks to Contraption, DRD, and Birth, we can look the part too!

I do love it when Blue and I find unique, whimsical, and otherwise outside the ordinary items inexpensively or better yet for free in Second Life.  Keep reading for info about each of these fantastic group gifts, and peep the full list of credits and links at the end. Then you can go on your own adventures.

Contraption

The foundation of my look for this post, and Blue’s, is this amazing jacket by Contraption. Not only is it highly detailed, it comes sized to fit both male and female avatars. It also includes a hud that allows you to change the metallic embellishments to gold or silver. This special edition version of the “Atreus Waistcoat” is free to all Le’Homme group members for the month of February. The Le’Homme Magazine group is free to join. You’ll find this cool gift waiting for you at Contraption behind the desk.

Sizes Included: Belleza Jake, Signature Gianni, Slink Physique Male, Slink Hourglass, Maitreya Lara (+Flat Chest Size), Belleza Freya

L'HOMME FEB 2020 GROUP GIFT: Atreus Waistcoat *MACHINA* edition

DRD

Death Row Designs aka DRD recently put out this cool as hell unisex cap as a free group gift. I love all the individual patches that add the detail of this hat. It comes in black, and navy blue. It’s able to be resized, and can be worn by male and female avatars. To get yours, you’ll need to join the free-to-join Death Row Designs group and click the gift vendor while wearing your group tag.

Finally, the detailed mandala-like design shaved into the back of Blue’s head just so happens to be a current Mens Stuff Hunt gift available at Birth.

Blue Hearts Beat as One

Blue Hearts Beat as One

Hello hello Fab Free’rs! I think there’s some unspoken rule that when dating someone you must at some point wear one of their shirts. I’ve certainly stolen borrowed Blue’s shirts before. This time I claimed his pajama shirt; though honestly I don’t think it bothered him at all. These royal blue heart print pajamas are the his and hers Sin City 3 hunt prize at The Sissy Bar.

The Sin City 3 Hunt has multiple paths. These prizes are the male and female path prizes at The Sissy Bar priced at 1 linden each. Both the men’s pajama pants and the women’s pajama top come in several sizes. There is also an alpha layer and standard mesh sizes so these dollarbie hunt gifts are suitable for classic non-mesh avatars.

Men’s Sizes Included: Classic Mesh (s-XL) + Alpha Layer, Adam, Aesthetic, Belleza, Gianni, Slink, TMP
Women’s Sizes Included: Classica Mesh (xs-XL) + Alpha Layer, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), TMP, Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Ebody, Maitreya Lara

Men’s Prize Hint “Hiding next to a gas pump trying to copy it so I can blend in.”

Women’s Prize Hint“Hiding behind the guardian bells so I feel safe.”

Home for the Holidays

Home for the Holidays

Would it even be Christmas without brightly colored matching Christmas sweaters? I think not. Honestly though, that man of mine is a pretty good sport for agreeing to matching holiday-wear in the first place. We packed up the car and our faithful companion for a road trip to visit relatives during the holidays. The sweaters just so happen to be Merry Christmas Hunt gifts at MystRie. The car full of gifts, the doggo, and pose are all part of a free gift available at Fashiowl. Keep reading for more details, and get all the credits at the very end. Happy Holidays Fab Free!

MystRie

The male and female Merry Christmas Hunt prize at MystRie are hidden separately, and will cost just 1 linden each once you find them. They come in the color shown with several size options, and an alpha layer for Classic avatars. Each gift also includes matching mesh socks. The Merry Christmas Hunt runs from now until December 31st.

Women’s Sizes: Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), eBody, Maitreya Lara, Slink (Hourglass, Physique, Tonic (Curvy, Fine), TMP, Fitmesh + Alpha
Men’s Sizes: Belleza Jake, Slink, Fitmesh + Alpha, TMP, Onupup

Women’s Gift Hint: I like retro, especially the fifties.
Men’s Gift Hint: This Lord doesn’t look like one of Santa’s reindeer.

 

Fashiowl

This pose and prop set by Fashiowl is just the cutest. It has several couples poses, and includes the car full of presents along with the family pet. Even better, this fun set is completely free. There’s no group required, just buy the set for zero linden. Also there are a few other cute pose sets out for free (including the stack of presents on the floor) at Fashiowl, so don’t wait!

There is Magic in the Air


There's Magic in the Air

There’s magic in the air this time of year. It’s when I feel most in my element. Having someone to share it with makes it even better! A recent free group gift at b[ELLE] is perfect for getting into the spirit of the season. It has a full outfit for the guys, and a cute dress with bat wings (not shown) for the ladies. The b[ELLE] group is free to join, and there are quite a few free group gifts available. For more info on each of the outfits included in this spook-tacular gift just keep reading. Otherwise, scroll down for full credits. Thanks for being here!

B[ELLE] Group Gift – Ladies Outfit

This halter style dress is every bit as cute on as it looks. I have to say I felt a little bit like Betty Rubble dressed in her Halloween frock. It comes in several sizes including sizes and an alpha layer for classic avatars. There’s a color change hud as well with 3 color choices for the dress, and 3 similar color choices for the men’s shirt. Also included are an adorable pair of bat wings which I chose to not wear.

Dress Sizes Included: Standard Mesh (small, large) + Alpha, eBody, Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Maitreya Lara

B[ELLE] Group Gift – Men’s Outfit

The men’s outfit part of the free gift includes the casual shirt and matching pants. I like the fact that the print is just on the front of the shirt. I think it keeps it from being too busy. It’s really perfect for the season. The same hud that is used for the dress also works for this shirt. The jeans and shirt come in several sizes, and there is an alpha layer for both so this outfit is suitable for classic avatars.

Shirt Sizes Included: Standard Mesh (small, medium, large) +Alpha, Belleza Jake, Signature (Gianni, Geralt), Slink
Jean Sizes Included: Fitmesh + Alpha, Belleza Jake, Signature Gianni, Slink

The Damned


Pyromancy

Demons manifest through arcane ritual and hell fire. What is this? Has the world been flung into a darkness where horned devils step into the light? Well, perhaps nothing quite that malevolent, however there are a few days left of the Twisted Hunt where you can find a lot of what Blue and I are wearing, as well as some of the demonic décor Blue used to create this fiendish atmosphere for free. You just have to hunt them! The hunt ends on September 30th. I also picked up one of the group gifts at Pendulum to help accessorize my devilish appearance. Since there are several of the Twisted Hunt prizes included in this post, I added the vendor photos I could find below. To get more details about each of these finds, keep reading. Otherwise, feel free to scroll down for full credits. and thanks for being here!

The Twisted Hunt Gifts

Additional accessories are available on the Twisted Side Hunt, but are not shown in my photo.

More Than Alright


More than Alright

There’s a whole wonderfully weird wild world out there and I’m proud to be living in it, even when things get heavy. To some the crowded city with its miles of pavement might seem bleak. I find the vast concrete jungle to be full of art and adventure, especially when I’ve got my partner in all things by my side. Clothing being an excellent form of artful expression; my corset top and his vest from BYRNE spoke loud of love as we spent the evening together just wandering the streets and exploring the underground of Tokyo Windhill City.

BYRNE – Male & Female Group Gifts

The sleeveless shirt Blue is wearing and the corseted top I have on are both free September group gifts at BYRNE. I’ve added the vendor photos for these gifts below so you can get a good look at the vibrant color and pop-art-like textures. Both gifts come in a blue version as well as a purple. To get your copy of these fantastic free gifts, head over to BYRNE and join the in-world group. Then you can grab both gifts from the group notices.

Horsing Around


Horsing Around

We are closing in on mid-week and I think it’s time to take some down time, and maybe play a little HORSE. For this post I picked up the Beached Bunny Hunt 9 prize at Freda, and my handsome guy picked up the July group gift at R2A. I think we look great on the court in our red and black. I also picked up this cute pose for just 15 linden on the Marketplace. Keep reading for all the what, where, and how.

Freda Beached Bunny Hunt 9 Prize –

My top and matching shorts are the BBH9 prize at Freda. They are cute as can be, and can be worn together or separate. The BBH9 is a dollarbie hunt meaning all prizes are just 1 linden. The hunt will run through the end of the month, so you’ve got a little time to hunt down this outfit at Freda. The outfit comes in the following sizes: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Ocacin, Voluptuous, and a “Classic Model Size M.” No alpha layer is included however. You’ll be looking for a beach pail full of sand.

Hint – Do not spread all that sand over the work table when picking your gift!

R2A July Group Gift –

The top and matching athletic shorts Blue has on are the free July group gift at R2A. This gift comes with a color change hud for some customization. It also happens to come in quite a few sizes, including some sizes for child/teen avatars. The following sizes are included with this free group gift at R2A: Signature Gianni, Adam, Aesthetic, Belleza Jake, Nx – David, Tweenster, Toddledoo. The R2A group is also free to join at this time.

Vetro Poses Basketball Pose – 

Vetro Poses has quite a few inexpensive poses available on the Marketplace. I picked up their “Couple Playing Basketball 02” pose for just 15 linden on the Marketplace. This pose includes the his and hers poses, along with a basketball, and the option to have a basketball goal (not shown) included with the pose. I wanted to use a different basketball with this pose, so it was derendered and a different ball put in its place.

Late Night Swim


Late Night Swim

Hey There Fab Free! Welcome to the blog. I think that Blue and I are going to spend as much of the SL summer as we can in swimwear, and I think you should consider doing so also. haha Luckily the Siren’s Song hunt has started and we were able to pick up another matching set of swimsuits for free. The free gear by Dragonmoon Designs also made the perfect excuse for a late night swim, which is possibly one of my favorite warm weather activities.


Late Night Swim 2

F Hint – “Get Lucky”

M Hint – “It’s all Greek to me.”

These free SSH gifts are just waiting to be found at Dragonmoon Designs. They both come in several sizes and include a color change hud with 3 color choices for some added style options. Each prize is hidden separately, but with the provided hints they shouldn’t be too difficult to find. The hunt object is a sand dollar.

Swim Trunk Sizes: Standard Mesh (xs-L), Adam, Aesthetic, Slink, Belleza (Gianni,Jake), TMP *No Alpha Included

Bikini Sizes: Classic/Standard Mesh (xxs- L), Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Maitreya Lara *No Alpha Included
