Captain’s Log: The Nineteenth of March, Year Unknown
My Co-Captain and I set sail for an uncharted destination just a few days ago. Today, for the first time, we found land. Our steam ship ran aground in an unfamiliar location. Where, or even when our time travels have brought us, we cannot be certain. All that is certain is that we found our adventure, and we look absolutely smashing while doing so.

Hello Fab Free’rs! Welcome back to the blog, I promise you haven’t stumbled over a strange steam punk novella. I was just having a little fun with some of the fantastic Seam Hunt prizes my guy and I gathered. His hat, and our amazing jackets are free Seam Hunt prizes. In addition to the hunt freebies, I picked up an incredibly detailed free steam paddle boat that was just too cool to not share with you. I hope you enjoy these fabulous finds, and maybe even go on an adventure or two of your own.

The Hat – I think bowler style hats are really cool for steam punk attire. This particular Steam Hunt gift hat by Miss Darcy has some extra steamy details, both literally and figuratively. This cool hat has a “steam” effect that comes from the wheel handle on top of the hat when worn, not to mention the goggles which complete the look. You have until March 31st to hunt down the little brown cog and claim your free gift.

The Coat – I still cannot get over the gorgeous details of these tailcoats by Contraption. This coat comes in male and female mesh sizes, and includes a cummerbund applier, as well as a system layer cummerbund. Additionally there is a color change hud that lets you change the color of the ascot/scarf and the little pin in the center of the scarf. Lastly, each of the sizes has an additional “bound” option for a corseted look. The best part is that this highly detailed piece is Contraption’s free Steam Hunt prize.

Sizes Included: Belleza Freya, Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass, Slink Male, Signature (Geralt, Gianni), Belleza Jake

The Spirit of Adventure

The Steam Paddle Boat – Believe it or not this ultra cool vessel is not only completely free, it has full permissions. I stumbled across this awesome freebie while exploring sims. This free boat can be found at the Alpha Tribe sim. Simply pay the boat 0 linden and you’ll find a copy of it in the objects folder of your inventory. Along with being cool to look at, this steam paddle boat has some animated parts, and 2 sit poses. There is a single pose at the steering wheel, and one up top at the organ. Lastly, since this freebie has full permissions, you can customize it however you like.

P.S. If you dig Blue’s waxed mustache, it’s a freebie too! You can pick it up for free at Kauna. Afterall, dapper gentleman would be complete without one.

Here are the details, may you have happy adventures!

As some of you may know, I am an opinionated sort of person. I have little issue expounding on most any subject, especially when I have strong feelings on such subject. That said, Julianna threated to lock me in a closet if I made my true feelings about most of the free offerings for the men of Second Life. So let me merely say, Thank You, Contraption. Thank you for going above and beyond for the men of L’Homme with this gift.

Not Just Another Ball Cap

This is the Jasper Waistcoat and shirt and it’s the completely free gift for the L’Homme reader’s Group. I am genuinely impressed with the style and the attention to details in this piece. The Jasper Waistcoat is offered in store in several other colors at a reasonable cost. And you may be inclined to indulge. Yet, Contraption has given us a superb piece, in a color we want. It’s a high quality gift and I for one am very happy with it.

The waistcoat will look best with high waisted pants, especially if you are going for a clean cut Steam or authentic Victorian look. Contraption has also included a cummerbund applier HUDs for Belleza, Miatreya, Omega and Signature.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza
  • Signature
  • SLink

A quick note – Contraption has included some Female sizes for the waistcoat. The breast sliders will not work for the more well endowed and the piece has not been actually configured for women.  This is part of the note from the designer – We’ve only included female sizes for those who would like to pull off a certain look for our own friends.

Book Worm

Book Worm
Hello There Fab Free! Are you feeling that holiday rush yet? I know I am! I needed to take a minute, relax, and unwind. A favorite way to do that is to find a comfy spot to sit, pick a good book to read, and sip a warm cup of tea (or coffee).  DE.Boutique recently sent out this cozy over-sized sweater dress to their Subscriber group. Also, I took a little time to pop over to Fameshed and pick up the pile of free gifts waiting under the Christmas tree. For today, I’m excited to share with you the Fameshed gifts from MINA and Contraption. Keep reading for more info about each of these fantastic finds!

The Dress – This wine colored gradient sweater dress was sent out earlier this week to the DE.Boutique Subsciber group. It is called the Zoe dress, and it comes int several mesh sizes. I do want to point out that I am unsure if new subscribers will receive the free gift of not. I did try unsubscribing and re-subscribing to the DE.Boutique Subscriber, and the gift was not redelivered. However I would still encourage anyone to stop by DE.Boutique and join their Subscriber group to be sure and receive any future gifts. Also, check your inventory, if you’re already a DE.Boutique Subscriber, you may have received it.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Ebody, Belleza (Venus, Freya, Isis), Slink (Hourglass, Physique)

The Hair – This cute puffed up side pony is the free Fameshed group gift by MINA. The Fameshed group is free to join, and you’ll need to wear the group tag to get the gifts. You’ll find a whole pile of presents under the Fameshed Christmas tree. This hairstyle from MINA comes in a “browns” color pack, but I have to say the color range is quite broad, there are very dark almost black shades, and very deep auburn red shades along side several brunettes.

The Glasses – I love these unique glasses with their rectangular lenses. They are the free Fameshed group gift by Contraption available under the Fameshed Christmas tree. This gift includes a color/texture change hud that will let you pick from preset colors to change the color of each lens individually, as well as the frame. You will need to wear the Fameshed group tag to get the gift, however the Fameshed group is free to join.

Here are the details, enjoy!

Skin –  Essences – Luisa (Genus)

Miss Murder

Don’t worry, the rest of the year hasn’t shot past so fast that its suddenly October and Halloween! In the midst of all this summer sunshine, I thought I would darken the mood for a moment and do something a little more macabre.

I was inspired by the Tabitha Gown by Rowena’s Designs which is their newest group gift. Its rich dark red fabric and leather corset was just itching to be worn in a darker setting! Contraption provided my unwilling victims in the form of the wrapped Corpse Set which is their new group gift and the scene was set. Both groups are free to join!

Do you like my wings? They are part of Project Limited and are created by 7 Mad Ravens. They are exclusive to the event and are in very limited numbers. When I purchased mine they were at just over 100 pairs left out of the starting amount of 150. Once they are gone they are gone for good, so if they tickle your fancy, be sure to go and get them while they are still available!

As soon as I got the notice through for the Lune Headchain from Panik, I knew I had to include it in my look as it has a certain dark ambiance that suited the set up perfectly. The group is free to join and the gift will be there for the rest of the month.

I have shown the Realistic Fangs before but this time I did take a bite out of someone… yikes! You can find the Lips-Dripping-Blood tattoo from Elymode on the marketplace!

Good day my Fabulous Friends!!

Today I was all over the place…. I had picked up my armband as a group gift from epia, and that led me to think military, but I didnt want to do the standard, I wanted something a bit…. different … I scooted to ContraptioN where I found this awesome hat, and then was like… what to wear on my body *laughs* GizzA offered a great pair of boots in their January Gift (the whole outfit is really great, but not quite the look I was going for) so I ended up wandering around the store and saw this great jacket.  I paid the fee and was happy with my purchase even more when I saw the HUD and that I was getting four colors in one (WIN!!) Trying to keep myself from spending anymore monies, I checked out the marketplace for a skirt that would go nicely with my look… After trying on about 20 or so freebie mesh skirts, I ended up buying this full perm dollarbie skirt from Demi’s Starshine marketplace store. I saw these Madrid Solo eyes when I picked up some gifts over at the WOMENstuff Lounge.
