Stories to Tell

Stories to Tell
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! It’s the weekend and I’m so glad. I had a long but productive week and now I get to play a little. I hope each of you are enjoying the weekend as well. I’ve got a few group gifts and some event gifts to share with you to create this sort of modern pin-up look. I hope you like these gifts as much as I do, I really had fun putting this look together.

Petry Model Store

There are actually several group gifts at Petry Model Store right now. I picked up two of them. These cute caged over the knee sandals, and the applier outfit are both Petry Model Store group gifts. I thought they went perfectly together. The Petry Model Store group is currently 50 linden to join. The shoes come in several mesh sizes. The outfit is in appliers only, and this single dark blue color only.

Shoe Sizes Included: Belleza (Freya, Isis), Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass)

Outfit Appliers Included: Maitreya Lara, Omega

Goth1c0

If you have not ventured over to The Coven event, you should, not only is there a lot of fun shopping, there are several FREE gifts as well. Goth1c0 put out this forehead tattoo as their FREE gift at The Coven. I love tattoos. This one is a pretty script that reads “Stories to tell..” above the right brow. The tattoo comes in a Catwa applier, and a Classic System layer. To get your copy of this fabulous gift, head over to The Coven and join the event group, it’s FREE to join. Then click the little cauldron outside the Goth1c0 booth and your gift will be delivered.

Chop Zuey

The current round of On9 has a new gift available from Chop Zuey. The jeweled septum piercing Pru is wearing is a FREE gift at the On9 event. The piercing comes in 3 metal tones, black, silver, and gold. There is also a color change hud for the gemstones. Usually you would need to wear an On9 group tag for gifts at the event, however I was able to pick this gift from Chop Zuey up for FREE with no group needed. The gift is waiting at the Chop Zuey booth at On9. Should a group become required, not to worry, the On9 group is FREE to join.

Lavender Key of Time

Lucky Lavender
Hello Again Fab Free’rs! It’s good to have you here. I had to do a quick post today to show you a brand new group gift from Apple May Designs and a sweet tattoo from Moon Tattoo. First, the giftie from Apple May Designs.

Lucky Lavender

This gift at Apple May Designs is extra awesome because you don’t have to join the group to get it. Non group members can pick up this adorable polka-dotted two piece Shae set in either pink or lavender for just 49 lindens per color. If you are already an Apple May Designs group member, or you wanna join (there is a one time fee of 25 lindens) you can get one or both of the Shae sets for FREE by participating in the group only Lucky Letter boards. There is also at least 1 previous group gift still available. Even though you can’t see it in this photo, there’s an enormous bow in the back that just adds to the charm of this set. It’s like retro lingerie meets Disney princess and I love it!

Mesh Sizes Included: Belleza Isis & Freya, Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass

Tattoo Time

Up next, how pretty is this very feminine under-bust tattoo by Moon Tattoo?! I love all the delicate lines. You can pick up this tattoo for just 49 lindens on the Marketplace. I guess 49 lindens must be a theme for this post! The inexpensive tattoo comes in an omega applier and includes a classic system tattoo layer.

A Little Goth1c0 Never Hurt Anyone

Goth1c0
Well Hello Fab Free’rs! Once again it seems the week has gotten away from me. I am sensing a recurring theme in my world as of late, I never seem to know where all my time goes! I suppose that means I’m having fun, you know the saying: time flies when you’re having fun. Whatever the case, one thing I can say for sure, I do think this look is tons of fun and just the right side of sinister.

Goth1c0 Group Gift 

The mesh dress Pru is wearing is a FREE group gift from Goth1c0. Though it doesn’t appear this is a new gift (the packaging says July), I still like it a lot. I enjoy the way the dress shows off curves without showing too much. The Goth1c0 group is FREE to join, so the dress is a steal of a deal. The dress comes in standard mesh sizes and includes a color change hud so that you can change the color of the material in the sexy corseted side panels. There are 6 total color options, 2 of which are solid colors while the rest are patterned.

RedMint
RedMint Group Gift

You can always count on RedMint to have hairstyles that suit more alternative looks. This silver-blue toned messy up do is the most recent group gift at RedMint. The FREE gift is in this single color only.  The RedMint group is FREE to join, and there are several past group gifts available. To get this gift, you’ll want to make sure you’re in the hair studio section, if not just use the signage on the wall at the landing point to teleport to the hair studio.

Slack Girl Marketplace Special 

Alright, so I have to say that my closeup photo does not do this eye shadow from SlackGirl justice. There are little jewels under the lower lid that give this shadow a unique look. You’ll find a full eye shadow set by SlackGirl on the Marketplace for just 10 linden. With the set you’ll receive classic system layers for each of the 8 color options. You’ll also get an applier hud for Catwa, Akeruka, and Omega compatible heads. If you’re even half as into makeup as I am, this is a must have!

Here are the Details, Enjoy!

Tell Me About It, Stud

Tell Me About ItHello There Fab Free’rs, I hope it’s obvious that Pru is channeling a little Olivia Newton -John circa the 1978 version of Grease. As I was trying things on and putting this look together my mind went right to Sandy’s post makeover look. I can just hear Sandy saying “Tell me about it, Stud.” while Danny Zuko struggled to handle her sexy new look! Needless to say, I had some fun with this one, and I hope you like it.

Now I’m sure you’re wondering, where’d I get most of this stuff!? Thanks to one of the photos in our Fabulously Free in SL Flickr group, I found out about an event called Hashtag 7 Colors of the Rainbow. To be perfectly honest I don’t know much about the event other than there were a lot of colorful items and most of the vendors had at least one gift out, some had several. Each gift ranged in cost from FREE to as much as 10 lindens, most gifts I saw were set at 5 lindens. Leave it to me to find the least colorful gifts to show, what can I say I’m a sucker for black! I also picked up a recent gift by LIVIA from the Marketplace because I needed to have some gorgeous red lips to finish the look.
Better Shape UpStarting with the top rather than from the top, this black and gold bodysuit is one of many gifts at the Hashtag 7 Colors of the Rainbow event. The gift is from a shop called Alpha Female. It includes appliers for Maitreya, Belleza, Slink, and classic system layers for non mesh avatars. I am not always a big fan of applier clothing, however this bodysuit is really well done. I think the textures are beautiful. This gift is just 5 lindens, no group needed.

Next up, this boho bangle is from a shop called Shake, and you’ll find it at the Hashtag 7 Colors of the Rainbow event as well. This gift is a FREE one with no need for a group. The bracelet is able to be resized via touch menu. I love the detail in this piece of jewelry, if you look close, it has what looks to me like a cat face in the center of the design. I’m not sure if that was intentional or a happy accident, either way it makes me like it even more.

The last of the gifts from the Hashtag 7 Colors of the Rainbow event that I intend to show are these super sexy high-waist skinny pants from Hi-lo. They are also just 5 lindens. I love these pants. They are one of those staple wardrobe items, everyone should own a pair. The style is timeless, and they are great with a wide variety of tops from sweaters to crops. This 5 linden gift comes in fitmesh sizes, and a body specific size for Maitreya, Belleza, and Slink bodies.

Finally, because this look just wouldn’t be complete without some sultry red lipstick, LIVIA recently put out a set of gorgeous glittery lipsticks on the Marketplace. The Fall Shimmer set includes 5 shades of sparkly lipstick that range in color from gold to red. They are perfect fall shades. For just 5 lindens you get this set in classic system layers, a Catwa applier, a Fiore applier, a Lelutka applier, and an Omega applier. This is a generous gift well worth the 5 lindens, however you can also get this gift for FREE! If you’re not lazy like I am, you can head over to the LIVIA in-world location and pick up this gift for FREE with your LIVIA group tag. The LIVIA group is FREE to join.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

You Were Always on My Mind

Always Thinking Hello hello Fab Free’rs! I’m excited to share with you an almost complete look that I think is not only fantastically cute, but Fabulously inexpensive. I’m really pleased with how this look came together. I love the colors, and I think it’s a cute casual look for the cooler weather. Not to mention there’s something essential about a hoodie for the fall.

Cynful Clothing Co. recently switched out the items in their lucky boards. If you’ve never been to Cynful, the store has several group only lucky boards all with quality women’s clothing. The mustard yellow hoodie Pru has on is one of the several FREE lucky board prizes to be had at Cynful. It’s fully mesh and comes with an optional zipper attachment for added detail, as well as a color change hud to adjust the color of the inner shirt, the hood strings, and the zipper attachment. The hoodie is technically a dress, and it is long enough to be worn without pants.
Thinking AlwaysWhen I first put this hoodie dress on, I knew I wanted to wear leggings and boots with it. It gives the look of a comfortable casual outfit while still being stylish. These applier leggings are a Marketplace dollarbie by Offline. I couldn’t ask for the colors in these patterned leggings to match more perfectly with the hoodie, and I really like the sort of bohemian feel the leggings give the complete look. In the package you’ll find a classic system layer, an Omega applier, a Belleza applier, and an “All in One” applier with options for Lena, Phat Azz, Wowmeh, Banned, Ghetto Booty, and Banned.

For a final touch I added this pretty purple nail polish by Hello Dave. Sometimes I like my manicure to very obviously match my outfit, and other times I like it to stand out a little. This pretty shade of deep purple compliments the mustard yellow in the outfit very well. You’ll find this FREE manicure/pedicure in one of the 3 FREE Fabulously Free in SL group gifts at Hello Dave. As previously shown here, this lovely color is part of the palate of sold polish colors. The nail applier hud works with omega compatible  and Slink hands. To get these specific freebies at Hello Dave, you’ll want to wear you Fabulously Free in SL group tag.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

T.G.I.F.

TGIFIt’s Fri-yay!!! Hello hello Fab Free’rs, I hope you’re enjoying this fine day, or are about to have a great weekend. As for me, I’m glad to be here sharing my Fabulous finds with you. For today I wanted to focus on hair and makeup. In my personal opinion one of the best things about Second Life is the ability to infinitely customize the look of your avatar. To say that my personal taste is eclectic would be an understatement, I love the freedom SL gives me to change my look entirely on a whim. That said, not all changes need to be dramatic. Sometimes something as simple as a new hairstyle, a new set of eyes, a bold eyeliner, or a different shade of lipstick can be all the change you need.

Speaking of hairstyles, I really like this FREE gift from Moda. I think the half up half down messy bun a great mix of casual and effortlessly chic. There’s no need to join a group or slap a board to get this FREEbie from Moda. The gift is FREE for everyone, and includes a chest-friendly fit. This is the only hair color included, however it’s FREE and really it’s quite pretty. To get this gift, head to the very back of the Moda store and click on the vendor. There are also several other non-group and group gifts waiting.
Double Take Okay, I know they are mildly distracting, but please do your best to ignore the odd little shadows that appeared in these photos! lol I wanted to give a side by side comparison of an already lovely skin with the addition of some various makeup appliers. Also, check out those eyes! The pretty mesh eyes are a FREE gift available to everyone at Dulce Secrets. I wouldn’t have guessed pink and silvery grey eyes would have been so pretty and passably natural looking. I am however, pleasantly surprised at how unique and pretty these eyes from Dulce Secrets look. You can get these pretty pink peepers for FREE by clicking the gift vendor next to the Midnight Mania board at Dulce Secrets, no group needed.

Next, the deep dark winged liner with the white added to the waterline that speaks to my soul is from Pink Acid. I was so excited when I came across it! I know, I’m a complete nerd and I don’t even care. I’m a sucker for beautifully done heavy winged eyeliner. I think my inability to create this look on myself in real life might make me covet it even more in Second Life! lol This Catwa applier by Pink Acid is available on the Marketplace for just 1 linden. You’ll also find a classic system layer in the package, so a mesh head isn’t a must.

Finally, the purple/mauve lipstick is another applier I picked up for FREE on the Marketplace from a shop called Shiny Stuffs. This FREE wearable demo is also an applier for Catwa heads only. Not only does an applier like this one give you the pop of color, but they often appear to change the shape of your lips, as you can see in the above photo. Ultimately, this fun FREE wearable demo by Shiny Stuffs is a beautiful color, and well worth the effort if you wear a Catwa head.

Here are the details, Enjoy!/
