Fab Free Designer Friday – 06/09/2017 – Costarlos

Costarlos Exterior
Well Hello Fab Free’rs! Can you believe it’s Friday already? This week’s Fab Free Designer Friday post is all about Costarlos. Yep, a menswear designer! You may be thinking this exterior shot of Costarlos looks somewhat familiar. Well that is because the Costarlos shop shares a location with BlackRose. The shops sit across a brick street from each other. I really like this shopping experience because it begins in such a pretty setting. You can even rez a bike for free and enjoy the scenery. As I’ve mentioned, Costarlos is mesh menswear designer. The style is what I would call classic, with a little bit of preppiness (that’s not a word but you get the idea!) and a little bit hipster. You’ll find everything from sports coats to graphic tees. There are even a few accessories upstairs along with a few cool looking flannels that I couldn’t help but notice.
Costarlos Offers & Gifts
The shop is clean and easy to navigate. You’ll notice a purple Fifty-Five Thursday kiosk just as you enter the shop, and three items on the wall that are all priced at 55 lindens currently. I don’t know how long these offers will be available, so don’t hesitate if you see something you like. To the left of the staircase you’ll find the FREE Costarlos Group Gifts and the exclusive Fab Free Group gift. The Costarlos group is FREE to join, as is the Fabulously Free in SL group. Carson showed the Fab Free exclusive gift in his post “Bike Break“.  You can also check out some of Carson’s other posts featuring the still available Costarlos group gifts and offers here, here, and here. Happy Shopping Fab Free!

At the Gate

At the Gate
Even if you are standing still on the outside of the gate together, you are moving forward.

On Her

Love is wearing the brand new group gift at American Bazaar.  This plum halter dress is beautifully textured and has the appearance of smooth silky satin.  It puckers and drapes in all the right spots and is yours for a one time join fee of 10L.  You can find this free group gift behind the reception desk on the wall.

Sizes included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, & Venus
  • eBody
  • Tonic Fine / Curvy
  • TMP

On Him

Costarlos is where you’ll find my Chino Black Pants and Lucas Black Waistcoat & Shirt as newly released items, priced at 55L each.  These items will set you back a few lindens, but it looked so nice with her dress and were such a steal that I couldn’t pass up an opportunity to wear them.   I should also mention that the Waistcoat and Shirt Set come with an extensive texture change HUD.  My Brown Dress shoes are available at Gabriel as a free group gift with a free group join.

Fifty 5 and Steamy

Steamy

The temperature is just right…

I’ve drawn a bath and am ready to relax after a grueling day at work. I just need to slip out of my new clothes and sink into the hot relaxing tub and soak my worries away. I picked the the Bruno Outfit at Costarlos for just 55L as part of the Fifty 5 Thursday sale. This style is appropriately named Dot for the dot texturing on the shirt. This is just one of three items you’ll find on the Fifty 5 Thursday wall at Costarlos.

Now to slip into the tub…. HEY! That bath wasn’t for you….

Last Gasp

Last Gasp

To the last, I grapple with thee;
From Hell’s heart, I stab at thee;
For hate’s sake, I spit my last breath at thee.
– Herman Melville
(and this year’s winter)

I’m just so over you….

With the first day of calendar spring just a few short days away, one would think that the sun would be shining, the birds singing and flowers beginning to rise from the ground….
Nope, I was hit with a late winter surprise this week. I’m ready for short sleeves shirts and shorts, but it isn’t happening anytime soon, at least according to the weather report.
Today’s look was hard to find. Everyone is thinking spring and I had to fall back into winter. I remembered seeing a past group gift at Costarlos still out and decided to grab it before spring is here to stay. The Red Jacket with Shirt and Tie was a FREE Christmas gift to members that is still available and was very fitting for today. And I am still wearing the Black Pants, part of the $1L The Best of You Hunt gift from Wilson’s Designs.

Moving forward…

I’m so hoping that this is the final burst of winter. But at least it allowed me to show you some group gifts from Yack. By joining the group for FREE, you can pick up both the Waze Hat and the Zurich Scarf. Each comes with its own texture HUD to match your outfit. While at Yack, I also grabbed the FREE Basic Line Sunglasses. They come in three colors, black, blue and gold to keep the snow glare off your eyes.
Say goodbye winter. Don’t let the door hit you in the snowdrift. 😁

Alone

Costarlos

Lost and alone…

Sometimes you just can’t help but feel that way. It isn’t like you’re really lost and alone, you just feel out of sorts for no good reason, like a tiny elephant sitting on your chest. I’m sure I’ll feel right as rain in the morning…. As I stand at my favorite campsite and brood (yes, I’m a brooder), I have a few new group gifts to tell you about. The  Zip Brown Sweater is the FREE group gift at Costarlos. The sweater comes in standard mesh sizes XS-XL. The group is FREE to join and other group gifts are also available.

Somebunny loves me…

I also found not one, but THREE FREE gifts at Vero Modero, and today I shall present you with two of them. The Lock my Love Necklace is not only available in a men’s style but can also be attained in women’s size at the women’s gift board. I also found the Heart Bunny Beanie. This little guy can keep me company when I’m all alone…

Bad Hair Day

BAD

That Airborne Jet Lag Feeling…

Heya gang! I’m glad to be back after my excursion into that zone called Real Life for a family event… (That place isn’t what it’s cracked up to be… js)  It was a whirlwind trip but I’m so happy to be back home surrounded by all the things I love (dog included).  And I’m glad to be back and get all pixelly with you all, playing at all the things I love, including skateboarding.  I have several group gifts to show you and and an actual purchase *gasp* to show off today, so let’s get at it. I found several group gifts at Costarlos , but chose the Andy T-Shirt as my choice today. It looks casual and fun and perfect for grabbing some air. The group is FREE to join and the board of gifts available are FREE to members.

Panting and Out of Breath…

I found out that the TopGun Aviator Sunglasses I picked up at the Cosmopolitan Advent last month is also a FREE Group Gift at A&D Clothing . This makes me so happy because I love wearing these and can adjust the lens transparency with the included HUD. This group is also FREE to join. While I was at A&D Clothing I carved over ( totally surprised they let me skateboard in the store) to the Costner Pants display and thought those would be comfortable for a day grinding on the sidewalks. The Costner Pants set me back $199L,  but I was happy to part with my lindens. They also come in other colors or can be bought as a fatpack.

Retreading it…

I’m also wearing a FREE group gift from Vale Koer. The Vasiforms with Color Change HUD, that I have previously shown [HERE], is still available and is so versatile that you will want to keep these in your footwear closet.

Hair today, Gone tomorrow….

I know you’re thinking that I must have been bursting not being able to blog for a few days (by the length of this post) and you’d be right. Before I left, my big sister Serena bullied me told me that I needed to step out of my 4 year old comfort zone and explore new hair, if not for me, then as a service to you all, the readers. She said hair has come a long way in 4 years and to embrace the mesh. Love even mentioned that my old hair looked “blocky” and “like a helmet”  (I preferred the term “chunky”). I relented and went hair shopping. My mission was to find hair that was so similar to my old hair that the ladies would have a hard time telling the difference. I achieved that goal by stopping by ARGRACE and picking up one of their many FREE Subscriber Gifts. the Minato Hair is what I was looking for when I set out to update my hair. I plan on finding similar but different hair styles in the future to get a hair rotation going (can’t let the girls have all the fun).

Poking at Bad Unicorns…

Finally, (ikr?) My skateboard and backdrop both come from the same place. By joining the group for FREE at Bad Unicorn,  you can get both the Skateboard (that comes with an AO) and the B.A.D Backdrop for FREE. Now I’m off to Top Gun with the bros and impress the hos.  Later, dudes!
