The Real Teal

Tickle Me Teal
Hello There Fab Free! I hope everyone has had a fantastic weekend. Mine has been busy, but in a positive way. I also had a lot of fun putting this unique look together. It’s always fun to style something outside the usual, and as I am sure I’ve said a thousand times and don’t mind saying again, I love mixing elements of fantasy style with modern fashion. That said, one of the shops in Second Life that you can truly count on for unique beautiful skins is Stix.

Tickled Teal 

Stix has put out a huge group gift skin pack out as their March/April group gift. The gift includes the above pictured version of their Vera skin in 4 fantasy skin-tones. Each tone has appliers for mesh bodies, ears, heads all sorts of things included , which is one more reason this FREE group gift is so fabulous. There’s also a classic system version of each skin in the package. The Stix group is FREE to join, just wear your tag and click the gift vendor to claim your gift.

Perfectly Polished

Another shop known for stellar fantasy style is Plastik. Just this weekend Plastik placed out a gorgeous nail applier set for just 5 linden. I believe this is a group only purchase, but I may be wrong. Either way, the Plastik group is FREE to join, so the cost of the applier set remains the same. The set includes 10 polish options, each in this bright beautiful shade of blue, some are glittery, some are metallic. You really have to see them to appreciate how pretty the polish is. Included in this 5 linden purchase are appliers for Slink, Maitreya, and Omega compatible nails.

Teal Me No Lies

Finally, for this post anyhow, I also picked up the latest FREE group gift at Enertia. This cozy sweater dress is actually quite sexy on. It’s a halter style dress with low sides and an even lower back. If you’re at all modest, this may not be the dress for you as it shows a little side-boob and a generous amount of bum cleavage. I think it’s quite fun and playful. This is Second Life after all, so why not be a little more daring now and then. The dress comes in several body specific mesh sizes, including all 3 Belleza bodies, both Slink bodies, Maitreya, and another called Werewolf that I’m honestly not familiar with. Also there is a color change hud that allows you to pick from 12 different colors. Still not convinced you want to wear something so revealing? I think the dress would be just as cute with applier jeans and an applier crop top underneath. The Enertia group is FREE to join.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

High Glam

High Glam
Hello Hello Fab Free’rs, is it really Monday already? I have no idea where the weekend went, which at one point in my life might have meant I had a really fun weekend. These days, not so much! Ha! I did have a few moments to myself to do a little shopping, because really, in a perfect world that’s what weekends would be for.

High Glam

In honor of the recently celebrated Women’s Day, Hilly Haalan put out a special FREE group gift at the shop’s landing point. I do love that we have a day to honor the women of the world. I am also of the opinion that every day is Women’s Day however. All day, e’ery day! So while I didn’t get to this gift in time for the official celebration day, I’m excited to show this cute cropped sweater just the same. The gift top comes in fitted mesh sizes for the major mesh bodies, as well as a fitmesh size for classic avatars that has a matching alpha. This is a FREE group gift. You will need to join the Hilly Haalan group, which is also FREE to join.

Pixie Fluff

If you’re wondering about this fabulously green hair, it’s at the March round of The Arcade. I’m a sucker for cute hair in general, but this style by Clawtooth was a need-to-have! The Clawtooth machine at The Arcade has 2 hairstyles, this one is called Pixie Fluff, love that, and it comes with an additional hud so you  can change the color of the little clip on the side. The Clawtooth gacha at The Arcade is 75 lindens per play.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Hair – Clawtooth: Pixie Fluff (8: Magic Pack) – 75L/play @The Arcade

Can I make a connection?

Can I make a connection?

Another bright and sunny day

Well, it looks like the weather’s perfect for Valentine’s and while Commander’s distracted with chasing butterflies, I decided that it would be a good time to sneak in some headshot practice. If you’ve been following Love’s blog posts (here and here) recently, you’ll have been clued in about the Alaskametro hunt going on right now at Free Dove. It’s not a hunt to pass up on (Free Dove also runs two more free hunts concurrently at their location) but needless to say, I got wholly distracted by all the other free goodies that you can find there as soon as I teleported in. One of these is the Serenity skin by Alaskametro. I was immediately intrigued by this (as I always am when encountering new to me skin brands) and a look at the box told me that the skin gift package would include:

  • One classic avatar skin
  • Lipstick and Eyeshadow classic tattoo layers (worn in picture)
  • Omega skin appliers for mesh bodies compatible with the Omega system
  • Omega applier for both lipstick and eyeshadow
  • One shape

Snapping up the gift and taking a peek inside also lead me to discover that you’ll receive a bald base and eyebrow shaper as well. I’ve tried Alaskametro’s makeup and clothing in the past and the Serenity skin certainly doesn’t disappoint in terms of quality. The subtle tones of the makeup provided go really well with such a sweet face and I do adore the light dusting of freckles that Serenity has. It’s certainly a skin to wear for Valentine’s Day!

Speaking of Hunts

There’s another one I’ve just started call the Stupid Cupid Hunt 5. It promises to be fun though I hope I don’t get shot by any arrows in the process. One of the stops on the hunting path is Kingswood and they’re offering the Be My Valentine USB necklace as their hunt prize. This adorable and quirky necklace has an inbuilt resizer script for easier fitting and permissions are set to copy if (like me) you’d like to make backups before embarking on any modifications. I love how well detailed this necklace is, from the symbols on the USB to the little heart charm to the tag that reads Be My Valentine, it almost makes me wish I had this necklace in real life as I’m always loosing my USB drives (there’s probably a black hole in my purse or something). The Stupid Cupid Hunt runs from the 3rd of February to the 28th and prizes for the hunt are set to 1L.

Get to the Sale

What’s a holiday without scampering about to a sale? If you love getting more great quality hairstyles for your inventory, Clawtooth is holding a 25% off sale for all hair packs (gachas excluded) from the 13th to 15th February (not much time so hurry down). I’m wearing the Hang It Up hairdo in the picture which is an older style but I’ve had my eye on it for a while and thought that this was a good time to snap it up!

And that’s a wrap. I’d like to wish everyone a happy and safe Valentine’s Day! I got myself saddled with a blind date (pfft) and do you think I should bring Commander along? Some girls carry pepper spray others bring animals that could potentially maul you. Decisions…decisions.

Heart! Triangulate and Listen

Not Today SLHello Fab Free’rs! I feel like it’s been too long since my last post. I’ve missed sharing with you. Like some of the other bloggers I’ve been feeling a little blah recently, and perhaps a little restless. I think it’s this strange weather we have been experiencing out here in the southern United States. I also think I read something about Mercury being in retrograde. While I’m not sure exactly what that entails, I always see it associated with mental, physical, and emotional shenanigans. Even Second Life seems to be misbehaving more than usual. Whatever the reason, I hope things settle down soon for all of us! That said, I fell back on an old saying “look better, feel better” and picked out an outfit full of fun bright colors in effort to counteract all the blahs in both worlds.

TriangulateMaxi Gossamer – Sugar Heart Necklace

 The proverbial icing on the cake that is this wildly colorful outfit is the FREE group gift necklace from Maxi Gossamer. This heart pendant necklace comes equipped with a detailed touch menu so you can customize the size and color of your necklace. Also included is a longer version of the necklace. Pru tried it on, and the long version hung down to her navel. It made me think of those long necklaces you’d wear with a sweater. The Maxi Gossamer group is FREE to join. To get your own copy of this FREE gift, just head to the Maxi Gossamer main store and join the group, then click the gift vendor while wearing your group tag.

Eclectic Stars – Shimmy – Triangulate

If these pants don’t cheer you up, I’m afraid nothing will. They are a unique design from Eclectic Stars in an exclusive pattern especially for Fab Free group members. That’s right, these colorful pants are the most recent Fab Free group gift at Eclectic Stars. This generous gift includes specific sizes for Maitreya Lara, all 3 Belleza bodies, both Slink bodies, and TMP. Additionally there are fitmesh and standard mesh sizes included. To get this FREE gift, just wear your Fab Free group tag, the Fab Free group is always FREE to join, and click the gift vendor at Eclectic Stars.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Contemplation

ContemplationWell Hello Fab Free! It’s been a little while since I’ve been able to be online, but I am very happy to be back and I sincerely hope everyone enjoyed any and all winter festivities they celebrated. That said, it’s time you ventured through We Love Role Play if you haven’t already.  The current round of We ❤ RP is particularly special because there is a Christmas tree with FREE gifts piled under it. You will need to join the We ❤ RP group and wear the tag to get the gifts, however the group is FREE to join.

As far as I am concerned you’re never too old to play dress up, or to have a wild imagination. There were a few of the FREE We ❤ RP gifts specifically that called out to me. I just had to wear the armor from Belle Epoque, and the headpiece from Wicca’s Wardrobe. Perhaps the fact that I’ve recently started watching “The 100” again on Netflix had some influence as well. As for the elf ears, I just like how they look, I feel like a determined warrior elf: beautiful and strong.

Wicca’s Wardrobe Gift at We ❤ RP

This sturdy yet elegant looking headpiece is the FREE gift from Wicca’s Wardrobe at We ❤ RP. The textures of the Amara Headpiece are beautiful, and the face chains fit easily over my mesh head without any adjusting. You can size this mesh accessory with the built in resize scripts. Look for this FREE gift under the Christmas Tree at We ❤ RP.

Belle Epoque Gift at We ❤ RP 

The armor Pru is wearing as her warrior elf self is the FREE gift from Belle Epoque at We ❤ RP. This armor is beautifully done and moves well with the Maitreya Lara body. The Callie Armor is fully mesh and meant to be born with the Maitreya Lara body. Also, it comes in a gold version as well as the silver version shown.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Be My Frankenstein

Be My Frankenstein Hello Fab Free’rs! It’s good to be back from a long weekend away. I’m super excited to finally be able to share this look with you! Can you believe we’ve got just 6 days until Halloween? Do you have your costume ready? I still have no idea how I’ll dress up. The main reason I can’t decide on something is because there are so many cool costume ideas. I am however leaning toward a pin-up style Bride of Frankenstein thanks to these FREE and inexpensive items from Clawtooth, Stix, and Vero Modero.

Starting with this iconic hairstyle from Clawtooth, it doesn’t get much more “Bride of Frankenstein” than this! The “Bride of Frankie” hair is on sale at Clawtooth for just 25 lindens. It’s also a fatpack, so you can change it up a little if you want to put your own twist on the look and go with a hair color other than black. I also found I was able to match a Catwa hairbase (part of the Catwa head features) really well to this frighteningly fun hairstyle by Clawtooth. Don’t miss out on this limited time offer!

Stix put out a group gift this month as well. This FREE gift is a pretty set of fall/Halloween lip appliers. Included in the set are 3 lip colors, the green and black version shown, a solid smi-gloss looking black, and a pretty baby pink shade. All three shades come in an applier hud for Catwa, Lelutka, Genesis, TMP, and Omega compatible heads, as well as classic system layers. You’ll find this lovely gift for FREE on the group gift wall at Stix. It’s to the right as you enter the shop. The “PixyStix” group is FREE to join. You’ll also find a few lucky letter boards, and several previous gifts still available, just don’t forget to wear your group tag!

The finishing touch is another FREE group gift, this one from Vero Modero. I have seen various versions of this blood drippy necklace a lot of places in real life and I was so excited to see it as a group gift in second life. This fun choker is unisex, the resize scripts allow it to be sized to fit any avatar. The Vero Modero group is FREE to join, making this fun gift FREE as well. All you need is group space.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

To Fall

To fall

With Halloween right around the corner and with it tons of candy and spooky decorations and parties, I thought it would be fun to scour the grid to bring to you some free or under 75L costume ideas. My usual style tends towards the casual but if there’s anything Second Life has taught me it’s to try new things…so here goes! If you’re not on the RP scene like I am (getting there it’s on my bucket list) but just want to look like someone straight out of a fantasy novel for a day, head on down to Sadix Shop and try your luck on their lucky chairs. The chairs are open to the public with no group join required so when your letter is called you can have this outfit in your inventory entirely for free.

The armor set featured is the Libra outfit and includes everything shown including a fiery back detail and arcane field that is not pictured. The boots, top, and panties of the Libra outfit are mesh and come in the following sizes; boots (S-XL), panties (XS-L) and top (XXS-L). There are alpha layers included for all three items though in the spirit of full disclosure I did have to play with my sliders just a little especially in the chest area. Still, I personally feel that the few tweaks are well worth it as the armor set is well made and detailed. I love the deep red color and feel that it pairs off well with the burnished gold accents. If you have a mesh body that uses the Lola’s Tango applier there is an applier for the top included in the package as well.

The knee and shoulder guards, as well as the skirt, lends another layer of detail to the Libra outfit. These can be edited into position with your shape and I feel that they make great mix and match options if you want to change how the outfit looks. There is also a Lucky Chair for the male version of the Libra outfit as well as a no group required Midnight Mania board that you can slap if you want to try the Libra Guardian avatar.

To fall headshot

The skin I’m wearing in this picture is the October group gift from 7 Deadly s{K}ins. If you enjoyed sweet-faced Klaasje then this fantasy skin tone set will be a great update for RP or themed parties in general. The pack includes classic system skin in the tone dust with cleavage and no cleavage options, Omega head appliers for LAQ, Catwa and [AK] heads, Slink hand and feet appliers as well as Omega body appliers various mesh bodies and a Maitreya body applier. Whew! That’s a skin pack with lots of varied options. The generosity of creators in Second Life never ceases to amaze me. I don’t own a mesh body or head (on that bucket list) but it’s an education just reading these skin packages.

Well! I’m off to find another costume idea. Till next time!

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!

Time to Shimmer and Shine

Don't Tie Me Down
Happy Sunday, Fabulous Readers!

Last week, when I returned to Indyra to copy the landmark for my blog post, Ripley plunked himself down next to a sign in the plaza just outside Indyra’s door and refused to budge.  He kept gazing at me with his dark chocolate eyes, looking at the sign, and back at me.  After one glance at the “Tie the Knot Hunt” sign, I realized my canine companion was pointing out another Fabulous Find to share with our wonderful readers.

We had to don our detective hats, but after some searching around, I spied the small ring box cleverly hidden in the Indyra store.  Although it took a bit of effort (and maybe a little help from a certain someone’s talented nose), the prize within the hunt box made my time invested well worthwhile.  Jessa, Indyra’s lovely Tie the Knot Hunt gift, is a strappy, cream-colored dress with a gold brocade bodice and an airy, glistening skirt.  It’s so feminine and light – just perfect for an evening out.  The present comes with standard-sized fitmesh for classic avatars as well as appliers for mesh bodies.  This free, wedding-themed hunt runs until October 15th, so you still have time to head over to Indyra and do some sleuthing of your own.  I guarantee you won’t be disappointed.

I accessorized with Fabria, a delicate platinum necklace and earring set from Rebel Hope Designs.  Nena Mesh High Heels from ILLI, which I found on The Marketplace for only 99L, completed my look.  I know this is a bit above 75 Lindens, but these simple slink heels come with a HUD that allows for endless color variations, so one pair is like having a closet full of heels for a small investment.

Ripley and I are off in search of more Fabulous Finds for you.  Until next Sunday, happy shopping!

Feathers and lace

Feathers and lace

One of the things I love about Second Life is that just about every style of clothing can be found here. From bohemian to preppy to exotic, you’ll really be spoiled for choice. I’ve discovered that you can get away with wearing just about anything and everything in this ‘paper doll’ world of ours and the icing on the cake is that there’s a chance that it could be free. One such example of exotic is the Angel Corset from Glitter that you can snap up just by being in the Fabulously Free in SL group. Membership is free and all you have to do is paste the following link into local chat in your SL viewer and by clicking the link when it appears in local: secondlife:///app/group/020fa7af-444d-f54f-01e2-557ec06315fd/about

Once you’ve secured a nice and comfy spot in this awesome group, head on down to Glitter and grab the gift. The Angel Corset comes in five mesh sizes (XS-XL) and includes mesh panties that come in five sizes (XS-XL) as well. There is a very good alpha layer for both so you don’t have to worry about anything poking through. With its subtle nude tones and peekaboo front, this sultry corset is a must for your lingerie collection.

Feathers and lace backview

My favorite aspect of this corset is the beautiful detailing of the tail feathers. Coupled with the frills, bows, and soft ribbon detailing of the halter neck strap, the tail feathers certainly add a romantic feel to the whole outfit.

The blonde updo I’m wearing in the picture is from Clawtooth that is having a 50% sale on all of its hair packs till the 10th of this month.  The store has a wide range of beautiful hairstyles and the owner has listed their reason for having the sale here. Shopping and supporting a good cause is a great mix don’t you think?
