Happy FREE SKIN DAY Gentlemen!

freeskin ab 7ds

Hello everyone and happy Free Skin Day to all you Fabbies out there. First off, an uncomfortable truth for the male avies of Second Life: The default skin that you began Second Life with is definitely in need of immediate replacement. You might not want to fuss around with one, but a skin upgrade could make a world of difference in your SL. Male skins are notoriously expensive, but it is possible to upgrade your skin for FREE or for very little cost. Here are some fantastic possibilities:

A – Seven Deadly s{K}ins – Noah – (FREE Advent Calender Gift / 0L / FREE to join all December)
B – Seven Deadly s{K}ins – Bjorn – (Marketplace Promo Item / 1L )

Seven Deadly s{K}ins is a great place to get skins and easily one of the most generous stores on the grid as far as giving out free gifts to their group members. December is a great time to join their group, as it is FREE all month. The skin shown in picture A is part of their advent promotion and is Noah V1 Caramel. Every day this month, more pieces of this skin package will become available on their advent calendar. The skin is excellent and I can’t wait to see the other pieces of the set. The skin in picture B is Seven Deadly s{K}ins’ 1L marketplace promo skin. It seems there are always promos and discounts going on and with lucky chairs and a midnight mania board as well, this group is an absolute bargain!

C – Tellaq – Monti – (FREE Midnight Mania board / 0L / FREE Group)

Any discussion of quality FREE male skins on SL has to include the fantastic Midnight Mania board at Tellaq. In picture C, I am wearing the current midnight mania board skin Monti with the hairier option and the optional 20% darker skin tone changer. Their skins have a tendency towards the extremely muscular and athletic, and they absolutely excel at darker tones especially. Since this is Tellaq we are talking about, the prize isn’t just a skin but a complete avatar package! The package includes sixteen styles of facial hair and an option for a hairier body on each one. Also included is a shape and some eyes as well, so this really is a full package that you can get for FREE! Join this FREE group and start collecting these skins, There is a good chance you will like Tellaq’s products.

Now for something completely different! Here is a super cool FREE fantasy skin the store JOMO has put out for everyone to enjoy.

The Lady and the Thief

Hello again, FabFolks.  I spent a very pleasant afternoon on the Hunt today and found two things I think you’ll like. I picked the Autism Awareness Hunt   because I have two godsons on the spectrum. So this Hunt is for them!

The Lady and the Thief

C&N Designs is, as y’all know, one of our FabFree Designers and these two Hunt prizes will show you why we’re so excited they are.  First up is the ‘Isabell’ dress in green. I love this gown. The color, the soft floral and the long sleeves almost like wings, all just lovely. You even get the matching necklace.

The Lady and the Thief

This is the men’s prize from C&N Designs, the ‘Thief’ part of our title. Again, C&N has given us a beautiful build as well as a good looking outfit. The boots, the bracers and the belt are all resizable to get that perfect fit.  Since the men’s prize was so nifty, I thought this would be a good time to introduce y’all to Gabriel, my MAlt.  Because sometimes… ya need to indulge the animus.

 

The Autism Awareness Hunt runs until April 30th and will only cost you…0L per prize!

In my garden

One of the great things about being a FabFree member is the huge selection of totally free gifts you can pick up at our Headquarters! There is a little something for everyone no matter your style.

In my garden

I love medieval and Fantasy styles, if y’all didn’t already know that. So when I saw C&N Designs gorgeous ‘Eluthiel’ Dress, I knew I needed it! I love the quilted details and the golden ribbon wraps. The wide neckline just begs for a show stopper necklace and D.D.M Designs ‘Giallo Fiora Primavera’ necklace is just the thing.

In my garden

The Fabulously Free designers do change out the gifts periodically so if you love this look, hurry down right away to the FabFree Headquarters, put your group tag on and gather up the goodies!

Technical note – The SLurls in the list below are to the Designer’s main stores. The gifts I’ve shown here are at the FabFree headquarters. However, if you like the FabFree gifts you might just like to check out the Designer’s whole collection!

Have you had a good fantasy lately?

Hello again, my dears, I hope your weekend has been a good one. I enjoyed a full weekend of Hunts and I’m here to show off the fruits of my labor in the 0L  Medieval Fantasy Hunt. This is a large hunt and it will take you all over the grid with 52 designers participating. First up is Folklorica and their ‘Viking Runic Turf Hut.’

Have you had a good fantasy lately?

This is a beautifully built two level home with the second floor being a loft with ladder access. There are Norse runes around the door way and trophy weapons above along with a ‘dragon’ head carving on the uppermost posts. Now, y’all know I’m a gamer geek and one of my favorites is ‘Skyrim’ and this little house looks like it would be right at home there. (Shout out to my Tamriel brothers and sisters!)  The turf rook comes in two versions: a summer look and a snowy winter look.

Have you had a good fantasy lately?

Next is C&N Designs ‘Arunilod Blue’ dress. The prize from C&N also includes a men’s outfit in the same lovely blue. I love the velvet-look corset and the asimetrical over skirt. Perfect for  your next Fantasy role play.

Have you had a good fantasy lately?

One more quick note, the gorgeous hair I’m wearing today is ‘Jennaleigh’ from Damselfly and right now, it and a bunch more styles, are on sale for 30% to 70% off. If you love hair, I recommend checking out the “Lucky Charm” sale before it ends on March 17!

I am a Queen, for the moment.

I would love to get into roleplay. However, I am not all that great at pretending to be something I am not, even something as simple as a Queen in medieval times. Luckily for me, while I cannot get the acting down, I can still pull off the look!

queen1

C&N Designs is a store that is perfect for all you roleplay lovers. They specialize in mainly medieval/gorean type looks for both men and women. They also have group gifts! Yayy. I recently featured the male group gift for the FabFree Designer of the Day, but I just had to model the women’s gift. The lovely, mesh Isabel Dress makes me feel like a Queen, even if I can’t act like one 🙂 It comes in 2 separate pieces, the dress, and those wonderful winged sleeves, both in the standard sizes. If you happen to already have an alpha for a sleeveless dress, you can even forgo the sleeves, as the alpha included does require you to wear both pieces. I know you all have tons of different alphas to try out, just like me 😛 . You also get a really pretty, multi-strand, gold and pearl necklace with the dress. The group gifts are free, and the group is free to join. Also, make sure you check out their Lucky Boards, and Midnight Mania’s, they are open for anyone to slap.

Well, I think I am going to go and try bossing some underlings around…that is a queenly thing to do, is it not? Although, I don’t actually have any underlings, unless you consider my cats to be, and we all know that cats are way above any human! LOL. Until next time my fabbie readers, TTFN!

Guest Blog by Geoffrey Edwardstone – Calling All Roleplayers – The Medieval Fantasy Hunt

A Guest Blog by Geoffrey Edwardstone – Originally blogged [HERE]

I have to admit I’m a sucker for historical stuff in SL and I always try to check out historically themed hunts.  The twelfth edition of the Medieval Fantasy Hunt (MFH XII) is running until the end of this month, and starts at the United Inshcon shop sim.  You can follow the hunt either by getting the LM to the next hunt stop from the previous store’s gift or you can used the list of SLURLs at the MFH XII hunt blog.  The blog also gives the hints for each stop in both English and German (with one stop just in German) which is an advantage when you come upon a stop where the hint giver isn’t set up.  There were 52 stops in the MFH XII hunts when it started but 7 have dropped out, leaving 45 offering either a unisex or both a male and female prize.  But despite the fact there are just 45 stops, many of the prizes are ingeniously hidden at a considerable distance from the landing spot and it will take you a bit of time if you want to do the entire hunt.

First off let me show you the Odhor black mesh warrior outfit gift from PeKaS (MFH XII #15).  It’s mesh and includes alternative tunics with the hood up or with the hood down.  This outfit also includes the shoulder cape and the back-carried shield.  But the sword I’m wielding is the Viking Sword MFH XII gift from Dwar Barbosa Weapons (MFH XII #34).  The gift includes a wearable sheathed version, and is scripted with drawing and sheathing animations as well as the standard fighting animations.7Pekas,DwarBarbosa, Feyline (#15,34,28)_001The rightmost panel in the picture above shows an entire medieval Bryce woodsman outfit, which is the male gift at Feyline Fashions (MFH XII #28).  In addition to all the clothing, the outfit includes the hat, boots, bow and arrow (unscripted), and thigh-carried hunting knife.

Moving on, I’ve changed outfits to show you the Mystical Fantasy male medieval outfit in blue from C&N Designs (MFH XII #27).  The tunic and pants are mesh, and the outfit comes with the belt and boots.  It’s an elegant outfit, so I’m wearing it as I relax on Her Majesty’s Wooden Bench, the gift from An Lema (MFH XII #25).  This gift includes the animated mesh bench with all those pillows, the rug, two plant stands, and a table with decor items on it.

2AnLema:C&N_MFH#25&27_001_001

And finally, this next picture shows you the Korin knight’s outfit, the male MFH XII gift from The Seamstress (MFH XII #37).  It doesn’t include the boots (those are the boots I showed you above), but it is a mighty fine looking outfit with a gold design on the red velvet and a gold neck chain. That pistol is the Pirate Pistol MFH gift from Designs by Isaura (MFH XII #12).  The gift includes a “holstered” version which has the pistol held at the waist with a golden sash.  The pistol does fire, but is not damage-enabled unless you stick your own scripts into it.

There’s a lot more good stuff out there on the Medieval Fantasy Hunt so I hope I’ve shown you enough that you’ll go out and find all that good stuff.
