The Deep Magic

The Deep Magic

Today I’m feeling like some sort of vengeful goddess.  I can’t help it, whenever Cureless comes out with a new gift, things get magical….

Watch Out!

I have a deep love for all things holographic.  It probably goes back to the days of my love for Jem and the Holograms, but that’s a story for another day.  Cureless have put out a new group gift for members of the Fab Free group!  I got inordinately excited yet again, and ran over to pick this beauty up.  Group gifts for Fab Free members are always free, and the group will always be free to join!  You won’t be disappointed!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Hourglass Petite

Now, who shall I use my magic on today?

Alleycat Ballet

Alleycat Ballet

Alright so I’m gonna call this look a little bit Flash Dance, and a little bit Cats. haha I actually had a lot of fun dressing up and taking photos in this, especially since the outfit is completely free. I picked up the top, bottom, and adorable socks for free at Voluptas Virtualis. As soon as I put the outfit on I felt nostalgic for those iconic ’80s and ’90s dance movies. Maybe it’s time for a movie marathon? haha

This awesome gift from Voluptas Virtualis is free for everyone. The matching “Hadi” top and bottom come in female sizes only, however the fuzzy socks come sized for male avatars as well as female. Both gifts are packaged together. Just click the vendor near the landing point and the gift will be sent to you. The “Hadi” set has a color/texture change hud with some fun tiger stripe options and solid colors. You can also hide/show the trim or color it separately. The socks have a color/texture change hud with lots of options. Also, if kitty feet aren’t your thing, fear not, there are solid color choices as well as stripes. I have no idea how long this gift will be available, so don’t wait!

P.S. There are also several other freebies in the same spot at Voluptas Virtualis, no group needed!

Outfit Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza Freya, Legacy Female
Sock Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Hourglass, Male), Belleza (Freya, Jake), Legacy (Female, Male)

Miss Caroline is to blame for this amazing galpal gathering for The Liquid Lunch Date. She so cleverly persuaded me to get out of my bubble and interact with other humans. I can’t thank her enough for it either because this picture is worth a billion words that sing to my heart! It marks my official welcome into the blogger’s circle that I have craved to be in for 3 years now.
Aline is the sweetest woman I’ve been honored to meet, her running the FabFree group and blog must be two full-time jobs in itself. She does it with ease and grace I am honored she took a chance on me.
Pru gosh between her and rainbows/butterflies, I wouldn’t know why anyone would pick rainbows or butterflies! Pru has always been so amazing with her photos and friendship with me, that I couldn’t ask for a better idol to look up too.
Caroline is a loving, out of the box type woman who has always had kind loving words to share with me and is very helpful with everything she does. She told me about the MadPea Float and I was flabbergasted and needed it asap! She brought me right to it and She has never failed to be nothing but a kind, loving friend who the group would have a hole in if she wasn’t here.

Only Juli was missing from our little blogger gathering – but we’ll get her in there next time!

Let’s GAB about this free swimsuit I’m wearing from Dead Dollz, it has a very lovely tropical vibe with bright colors (GREEN) featuring some cute Flamingos that are perfect for this summer. You can get it free at the SecondLife Birthday 17 Shop & Hop and time is almost running out so make sure you get all your lovely gifts and celebrate!

Silene Swimsuit Fits:

  • Maitreya

Next up is this amazing free group gift from MadPea Rainbow Float that comes with poses for singles and couples. Past gifts are available as well with their free group, so I recommend you get there and get your beach on with some immeasurable friends and have some relaxation in the sun.

Make sure you check all the credits for additional Fab Finds!!

Gardening Gals

Gardening Gals

It’s officially Summer now, and that means that it’s time to dig in and get some planting done.  Me and Pru and ready for a bit of planting and gossiping, which will clearly be followed by some lemonade on the porch.   We’re getting in touch with nature again!  Hooray for the summertime!

Which Wood?

Witchwood (aka Oubliette and Petite Mort) are back on the hunting circuit with their very own Summer Festival hunt!  It’s filled with lovely summery, slightly boho outfits that will have you feeling like you’re in touch with nature before you know it!  The items are all priced from 10 – 20L and can be mixed and matched very nicely.  You can see which items Pru and I have got on in the credits below, and I’ve added the hunt key so you can see what’s on offer!  The Summer Festival hunt at Witchwood is running until July 5th!

  • Hourglass

Home Sweet Home

The lovely house Pru and I are hanging out in front of is the latest Stay at Home Club gift from Trompe L’Oeil!  To get it, just head over to their landing point and pay 0L.  The chairs on the front porch are also available for free there, and they look so inviting that I don’t know how much gardening we two will get done in the end!  As we often say in SL…you can never have too many houses!  And when they’re free…one just can’t resist!

Fab Free Designer Friday 2.0 – Cureless

Welcome back for this, another late night edition of Fab Free Designer Friday. Cureless is our designer for this week, so get ready for something a little, or a lot, different. Different done beautifully, Cureless is a clothing and accessories shop with a style that leans toward kawaii but is heavy on the creepy factor. So creepy kawaii? That’s a thing, right?! Even the shop location on the Curemore sim has a sort of a dark dystopian vibe.

At Cureless most of what you’ll find is for female avatars, however there are some things that are either unisex or made for male avatars also.  There’s everything from clothing and accessories to body modifications like tattoos, and eyes. I do feel I should warn, some of what is available at Cureless is rather gory, expect to see some blood and horror themed items. There’s a lot for role players here as well. The styles range along the dark fantasy lines including goth, anime, cybernetics, and everything in-between. All of it is in gorgeous if gory detail. There’s even large section of creepy but cool body modifications and scarification tattoos. Honestly, Cureless is the type of store that you just need to experience all they have to offer for yourself. If you’re not bothered by the afore mentioned creep factor that is.

Store Group 

As for the Cureless Store group, it has a one time join fee of 99 linden. As a Cureless group member you’ll get group gifts and first access to secret sales. Just behind the information desk is where you’ll find all the current group gifts. I counted 18 currently available gifts at this time. The gifts range from a unisex fur shawl to a tattoo set of surgery marks. There are also several sets of cool eyes up for grabs. I’d love to tell you about each of these gifts, but we’d be here all weekend. lol

Fab Free Group Gift 

There is also of course the free group gift for Fabulously Free in SL group members at Cureless. The lovely Aline showed it off in her post “Part of Something Bigger” which is really well worth the read. The gorgeous iridescent-like pale purple gown is free for all Fab Free in SL group members. You’ll find it waiting for you right next to the Cureless group gifts.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass, Hourglass Petite

Other Freebies and Fab Finds 

Cureless did participate in Fifty Linden Friday this week, which I know is almost over, Eeep! The FLF find at Cureless is a set of dragon themed face scars/markings for just 50 linden. The set comes in Omega appliers and BOM.

Part of Something Bigger

Part of Something Bigger I’ve been a part of Fab Free for what feels like a long time now.  First, as a reader, then as a blogger and recently as the blog organizer.  I can tell you that a lot of work goes into this little labour of love.   I’m not complaining one bit, because it is a wonderful pastime indeed.   We get so much supportive feedback from our readers, in the form of comments, IMs, notecards or even nice messages posted in the inworld chat.  Some days, you really need that little boost from the community, and I’m happy to say that it happens fairly often.

We Found The Cure

I spoke to the owner of Cureless, Kaorinette, last night.  Cureless recently joined the Fab Free designer program, and Kaorinette told me that she was happy to have made a gift (which I’m showing off today) for the blog community which helped her out when she was a newbie in SL.  What an awesome thing!  It makes me so happy to be a part of SL’s network of support.  You never know, the readers in our group today might be the designers of tomorrow!

You can get this gorgeous gown over at the Cureless mainstore by wearing your Fab Free group tag, which is always free to join.

Sizes

  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Hourglass Petite

Keep supporting each other, Fab Free!  And while you’re at it, check out our group gift listing and support all our Fabulous Designers.  ♥

Came for the Rides, Stayed for the Churros

Hi hi, have you ever been to an amusement park in Second Life? There’s been so many through the years, some of them are still around, some are long gone, but they can be pretty fun places, if not great places for pictures. Even this one, with it’s ghosts and many other spooky things.

I dropped by the other day by Gabriel and stumbled into a lot of goodies. There’s a whole section of 1L and 49L items, group gifts and free for everyone gifts. You will even see some little signs by some of the vendors where you can pick up some free shoes. A lot of what you will find is for male avatars, yet there are also accessories for everyone along with some unisex and female clothing items.

 

For other things you’ll see in this post, Maru Kado also has a lot of gifts (you will need to join their group for free to pick up most), from fun accessories to a selection of old booths for past editions of Japonica, one of which i’m using as a backdrop, tho of course they can be handy for many things more. And there’s also a hair from bonbon. You can pick it up for free if you belong to the group ( cost: 99L). It comes with a ton of colors and  both with the koala headband and without.

About the jackets:

You’ll see three different tops/jackets you can pick up for free at Gabriel, there’s no group join required. The three of them come in versions for both male and female avatars. Two of them come with swords as an accessory

  • Signature
  • Maitreya

Alright Mr. DeMille, I’m Ready for my Close Up

22-01-20

Heya Fab Free!  It is I, Aline.  Just a quick introduction to Ms. Seraph Kegel, who will be a contributor on the blog now and then.   Seraph is a true style icon, and we look forward to seeing her blog posts alongside your tried and true Fab Free bloggers.  By the way, keep your ear to the ground for the announcement of the newest member of our blogging team, coming very soon.  Take it away Seraph!

***

It may just be me, but this outfit is giving me Hollywood starlet vibes – it’s probably just me…most likely it’s just me.  But anyway, what matters right now is this bodysuit from Mangue that I’m wearing.  Joining the group for free is required to pick up this fatpack, but then you can also pick up another outfit they have at the store for free!

Sizes

  • Maitreya
  • Legacy
  • Hourglass
  • Freya

Thanks for reading, Fab Free!
