It’s cStar’s birthday, but the presents are for YOU!

Hey fabbies! I’d like to first apologize for my absence as of late, I’ve been battling a hectic and packed life away from my keyboard, as well as re-downloading ALL of my programs, drivers, software, etc. after having to completely wipe my computer’s hard drive thanks to a lovely (not!) computer virus which infected my system recently… let’s just say my week’s been full of fun!

Second, cStar limited, one of SL’s most loved skin shops, is celebrating their 5th birthday here in SL, but instead of GETTING presents, they’re GIVING 10 FREE skins away! What’s the catch? You have to find them! This is not your standard hunt either, you’ll have to look on various social media websites, as well as in the group (the gift in the platinum group and regular group are the same, so don’t fret if you’re not in both!), and in the store to get all 10. Each skin has a hint NC inside with how to find the next one, and the next one, and so on, so you’re not completely helpless finding them. In alphabetical order, the skins you’ll receive throughout this fun scavenger hunt are:

So, now that I’ve piqued your interest (I hope!), I have a smidge of sad news to share with all of you. I am going to be stepping away from blogging for Fabfree for a while in order to focus on my real life. I’ve sent out a notice to the blogger group giving a bit of an explanation, but I feel that I should share it with all of you as well, so here goes:

Blogging for fabfree has been something I’ve wanted, and aspired to do, since I discovered the blog several years ago, and having the opportunity to be part of this team has really meant the world to me. However, my life outside of the computer has taken an odd and busy turn, I’m not sure it’s going to change any time soon, and I’m honestly not sure I’d want it to. I don’t feel, at this moment, that I have the time to put the effort into fabfree that the readers deserve, and that the rest of the team has come to expect, and so I feel that it’s time for me to take a few steps back and focus on the world outside for a while.

This is in no way, shape, or form a “Goodbye”! I plan to bother you guys all the time, point out freebies when I see them, keep my position as a mod in the fabfree group, and I definitely plan to re-join the blogger team when my life settles down, but for now, I’m going to do “me” for a while…. or rather “us”, since a big part of the changes going on involve my  fantastic and adorable partner.

All the best of luck, and all of love in the world,
Skyler Glasswing ♥

The Boho Culture Fair – Part 6

Barner Logo For Website With Date

I know you aren’t going to believe it, but there are more dollarbies to be found at The Boho Culture Fair!  I have done five posts already of coverage on this event, and I bet I could do another five!  Today, I am showing off three really sexy date night dresses – all priced at 1L.

Below, I am wearing the PIXELITES Inc Tropical Breeze Dress in Cream.  I picked up the Jewelled Cinch Bracelets in the *MM* Marketplace store for 10L to accessorize this dress, and as you can see, they go well with about anything.  They have a colour change script too!

Deep Freezing Care…

BlogPost_80A

Well well well.. Good Early Morning Fabulous Ones….

Sadly, I found I had to dig my way out of a deep freeze in Quarantine to show these items….. Why was I locked in a freezer unit at “The Last Stop“?  The man there claimed that this place was “The Last Stop where Music is Art and Stories untold become Shakespeare….”  I guess I would have to agree with him, since what I found upon opening my eyes, was quite a tragedy.  This destination is being demolished.  Apparently they are in preparation for their move tomorrow to a new location….

But how had I got here?   Last thing I knew, I was at the Festival @ Osiruco sim….. Looking at the freezer unit, I found the markings on it strangely reminiscent of my time there…… wonder who I pissed off…. I wonder if it was devinvaughn, since he was the one who told me about the Festival in the first place….. *bites her lip*  eeps…. Let me show you what I have …. before something else bad happens….

She’s a Love Zombie {dollle*} with a Paper Heart…

I absolutely LOVE Halloween..and I look forward to when October rolls around so I can start putting costumes together and decorating my place.  One of the best things about Halloween in SL is that I don’t have to wait until the 31st to start wearing my costumes and the decorating isn’t limited to my small First Life apartment.

{dollle*} just sent this fantastic Bloody Bandage Dress to their subscribo members. *It is a mesh item so you will need a mesh enabled viewer to see it properly.  I paired the outfit with this fabulous Bride of Frankenstein Hair from Paper Heart; available on the Marketplace for 1L and the Blood Blaster Heart from A Folf in Sheep’s Clothing; also available on the Marketplace for 1L.

I finished off the costume with a deep crimson colored lip tattoo, that I scored for 1L from cStar Limited, at The Boho Culture Fair, Bloody Tears III Face tattoo (5L) from REPULSE , and Dead bloody eyes from Sicknessthesia…(FREE) on the Marketplace.  The Liane Goth skin in silver, from Amacci, was featured by Renee here.

I went all out decorating my sim for Halloween and I saved buckets of Linden by taking advantage of the wonderful hunts taking place around the grid and by scouring the Marketplace for freebies.  The Zombie Mausoleum is a prize for the SL’s Top Haunted Places Tour & Hunt from Post Mortum Designs, the crows are actually Walking Skeleton ACTION auto-rezzers from Another Fine UGH Design  for 10L on the Marketplace and the tombstones are free…as part of a Halloween Decor set from Diavolo Creations. The black pumpkins are a  group gift, 50L to join, from ::PM:: Purple Moon Creations.

Hunting for freebies on the Marketplace can be quick and easy when you use a few tricks to filter what you are searching for.  I always search the Marketplace with a key word for the item I am interested in and then use the “Category” and “Price” filters in the side column.  The category column can be filtered down to a fairly specific group and I usually search for items priced between 0-10L.  There are other ways to search for freebies on the Marketplace, but I find this to be the quickest route.  Just remember to only take freebies that are from the creator of the item and that you write a kind review if you like the item.  Creators really appreciate the positive feedback and it is a great way to thank them for offering something free to everyone in SL.

Additional Info:

The pics were shot on my private home sim, which is part of SL’s Top Haunted Places Tour & Hunt…so stop in to hunt for your FREE gifts!! (Made by my fantabulous husband <3)

The facial expression is from AnyPose Expression, available for FREE on the Marketplace, from Phate Shepherd Creations.

The pose was created by myself using Animare Pose & Animation System (NOT free), available on the Marketplace, from YT Recreant.
