Have Lens, Will Travel

Which of my photographs is my favourite? The one I’m going to take tomorrow.” 

Imogen Cunningham
1883 – 1976

I sometimes feel like I’m on the quest for my next photograph before the last one I took has been uploaded. But I say that in a good way. With each snap of the shutter, the better I become at my craft. I suppose the favorite thing about photography is that it takes me to places I’ve never seen before and through it, brings you there with me…..

Point and Shoot…

Today, I’m featuring a FabFree Group Gift from Zendra.  The Camera Necklace is FREE to our group members and our group is always FREE to join. The camera includes a texture changing HUD if you want it to be a color other than basic black. This is a must have for any photographer or tourist.

Digitally Delivered…

To pick up these group gifts, you will need to have your Fabulously Free in SL inworld group tag activated (It’s FREE to join!).  To join the group, copy and past the following link into local chat in your SL viewer and click the link in local chat – secondlife:///app/group/020fa7af-444d-f54f-01e2-557ec06315fd/about

Decisions

Snapshot_023

Do we mesh….

I’ve had a lot on my mind lately. I’ve even secluded myself to the man cave to think and test things out. She’s heard me banging around  and cussing out there. I bet she thinks I’m crazy. And I have yet to make a decision… I’ve been playing with mesh heads. I know, I said that I would never get one. I would never be able to get one that “looked” like me. Let me tell you, I’m very close in recreating my face. Maybe you’ll get to see it, or maybe I’m gonna say hellz no and just be happy with this ol’ mug. Time will tell…

Today’s look is from the What’s Your Category Hunt. The DLS Bangor Shirt is a $1L hunt gift from HORR Menswear. I also found the Hera Metalic Eyes at Inkheart. All the hunt gift on the male path of the What’s Your Category Hunt are just $1L.  (There is a $60L path too, so be careful before you click on the prize.)

And now, back to the face appliers. <sigh>

For Warm Sunny Days

Dead Dollz Imbue
Well Hello Fab Free’rs, no matter what the groundhog says I’m pretty sure I can already smell spring. The weather however seems to have no idea what season it is nor which is coming! Spring is all over these group gifts I picked up at Dead Dollz and Imbue. While, I do love sweaters and sweater weather, I have to admit it does feel good to put on something meant for warm sunny days.

Dead Dollz Dress

This stunner of a red dress is the latest group gift from Dead Dollz. Though it only comes in a single size, the dress fit my Maitreya Lara body like a glove. Even with all the detailed edging and low points under the arms and down the back, this mesh dress moves well. The Dead Dollz group has a one time join fee of 250 lindens, which this dress alone is well worth in my opinion.

Imbue Shoulder Bag 

I love the look of this bag from Imbue! The style of this cute mesh shoulder bag is such that it would match just about any outfit, whether you’re still sporting your winter fashion or you’ve started to dig out that spring wardrobe. I think the floral pattern is beautiful, and I even like how the fringe looks when your avatar moves. The Imbue group has a one time join fee of 99 lindens.

Here are the Details, Enjoy!

Circa 1998

Circa 1998
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! I hope you’ve had a chance to enjoy the past weekend. I personally have been thankful for the reprieve from Real Life that Second Life offers. As it’s been mentioned multiple times already, sweater season is in full swing, and I’m never tired of hearing that. If given a choice, I’ll take sweater weather over any other type of weather! With that in mind, I was out shopping recently and came across a group gift at The Little Bat that I hadn’t seen before. This group gift sweater was the inspiration for this look, instant ’90s nostalgia for this girl! A grunge rock anthem playing in my mind I found a lace choker from CHAIN on the Marketplace, and finished the look with a gift hairstyle by Alice Project that I picked up at Hairology.

This over-sized black sweater with plaid accents is exactly the kind of sweater I want to wear with some leggings while I curl up, have a cup of coffee, and read a book or binge watch my favorite tv show. I also think it’s totally cute with jeans and some boots. It’s the perfect “Netflix and Chill” kind of sweater. The best part its, it’s FREE at The Little Bat, just gotta join the group and wear your tag. The Little Bat group is FREE to join. With the sweater you’ll also get a color change hud that allows you to choose between a few color options to change the color of the plaid parts of the sweater.

With the plunging neckline of my sweater, and that sort of ’90s style, I wanted to wear a choker style necklace. CHAIN has this perfect pretty lace choker available for 1 linden on the Marketplace. I think the detail of this choker is beautiful. Also, it has a color change hud that will let you change the lace from black to white, and the choker has resize scripts so you can adjust the size by clicking it. I have to admit, I kinda want to wear this choker with everything!

Finally, I’m sure you’ve heard by now that Hairology is celebrating their first Anniversary round. As a bonus, most of the participating designers have FREE or dollarbie gifts out to celebrate! The hair pictured is one of two gift hairstyles from Alice Project. The Alice project gift is FREE. In their gift you’ll get two hairstyles, Kelly (shown), and Nicki II, both styles have a “winter compilation” color change hud with a generous number of options. I think just about everyone would be able to find a hair color in the hud that suited their personal style. Needless to say, you won’t want to miss out on this or the other gifts at Hairology.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Pink Plastik Pin Up

Plastik Pinup

I hope everyone is having a great weekend so far. I decided to take a little time away from the snow and the cold and enjoy some time in the sun wearing this fantastic FREE subscribo gift from BYRNE. The crop top and skirt combo Pru has on is the most recent subscribo gift sent out through the BYRNE subscriber. This is just the kind of outfit that reminds me of all the things I love about summer. While sweater weather is certainly still one of my favorite kinds of weather, there’s definitely something to be said for warm summer afternoons and evenings. BYRNE has used an amazingly detailed texture with a beautiful snakeskin pattern for this outfit. The raspberry red color gives it just the right touch of girlishness. Already a member of the BYRNE subscrbo? No problem! Just click the subscriber and check the message history. Keep in mind that just like regular group history, subscriber history is only available for a limited time!

Plastik Gift

It’s always fun when gifts seem to go together perfectly. These beautiful earrings from Plastik are a recent FREE group gift and I think they look great with the FREE gift from BYRNE. These detailed mesh earrings are a New Year gift from Plastik, just join the group and check past notices. Both the large and regular size are part of the gift. I kind of want to wear them with everything they are so pretty! At this time the Plastik group is FREE to join as well. Don’t forget past notices are available for a limited time!

Free Dove Hunt – Part 1

Free Dove May 2

Hi there Fab Free’rs! I don’t know about you, but I’ve had a long week already and I’m in some major need of retail therapy! Luckily there is a great hunt going on at Free Dove for the month of May. This means I get my retail therapy for FREE! When I first started the hunt, I really had no idea just how big the hunt really was. There is a lot of cool stuff to be had, everything from shoes to jewelry.

To start, pictured in the top left photo is this super fun party dress. This mesh dress is one of the FREE hunt gifts from Fission. I love the sequined skirt! The dress comes in standard mesh sizes with matching alpha layers. Next, in the center photo, the mask and the ring are both gifts at Free Dove from Masoom. The sheer lace mask is mesh and has the ability to be re-sized, and has a ribbon tie that goes around your head. I like the almost art deco look to this chunky ring. The ring is actually part of a complete outfit you can find while hunting, but it was so cute I couldn’t resist showing it right away! To the right in the photo is a pretty cocktail dress, also by Fission. Like all the gifts in this hunt, this is also FREE. The dress comes with standard sizes and alphas. I think it would be great for entertaining guests.

Free Dove May 1

Now for a few of the more casual items in the Free Dove hunt. I think this light blue day dress is very sweet. The buttons on the chest make the dress, I also really like the little cap-sleeves. This is a FREE hunt gift from Fission and it comes with standard sizes. The top pictured in the center is also by Fission. I was really happy to see something in one of my favorite shades of green. As with the other Free Dove hunt gifts by Fission, this one is fully mesh with standard sizes. I think the dress in the photo to the right is really feminine and pretty. It too is by Fission, and of course is fully mesh. In the country we’d wear this little dress with some cute boots and a bolero style jean-jacket!

I hope you’ve enjoyed my review of the Free Dove Hunt so far! There will be more to come, so stay tuned!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Don’t mind me, I’m only Lady Death, chillin’ in the Cemetery.

Hello all! Boy oh boy, do I have some great finds for you tonight! From a group gift, to hunt gifts, to just a great deal, I really think you will like what I’ve put together to show you. Lucky for me,  this is another great Halloween look, and I think it will be the one I submit for this month’s FabFree photo challenge. What do you think?

cemetary1

Let me start off with this gorgeous skin. It is this month’s free group gift from Lumae, which is also free to join. She is from the Evie line, and is called Lady Death. Don’t you just love it? You get 2 skin tones, the Cream tone, which I am wearing, and the even lighter tone of Icing. To get the total eyeless look on the skull half, there is a black-out eye texture included, which means you will need a mesh eye for the other side if you don’t want to have 2 black eyes. Who says you need a full face of skin to be sexy? LOL.

cemetary4

The cute outfit I am wearing, minus the underwear, which is a set I had in my inventory already, is actually unisex! The zebra striped pants,  tank, and hoodie, make up the D’Void outfit from Glo-Mart, and is available at the current round of the Candy Factory. For only L$65 you get all 3 pieces, of which, the pants and hoodie are mesh, in standard sizes that will work for women as well as men. I did have to add underwear, as this is a family friendly blog 🙂 There is a Lola’s Tango applier for the shirt included. You only have until the 14th to hit this round of the Candy Factory, so if you like what you see, don’t wait.

cemetary3

To finish up my skully look, I needed a manicure and pedicure, so I went with a hunt gift from La Boheme. Right now, La Boheme is participating in quite a few different hunts, so I really had my pick of what kind of nails I wanted. I settled on the River Styx hunt gift, the Voodoo Skull SLink mani and pedi, which were only L$1. There is actually a second set of polishes for this hunt as well, called Blood Roses. I’ve included a picture I took of the display ad that was posted at the shop so that you can see both sets.

cemetary4

What better place to take a picture than outside a creepy, misty cemetery. That great scene is courtesy of my new favourite spooky place, The Haunted Sim, which I first showed you HERE. I can’t say enough about how great this place is. I even ran into a FabFree reader who was checking the place out after seeing my post…she thought I was a part of the scene as I was setting myself up. LOL. *waves to Danni* Really…go check it out, you won’t be disappointed.

OK my ghoulish readers…I am done for the night. My bed is calling me, and hooray for the fact that when I awaken, it will be Friday! I hope you all have a fabulous day tomorrow, and I will be back real soon. Until then, TTFN!

We’ll Be Raising Our Hands, Shining Up To The Sky

Its still the music festival time of year over here in the UK, so here I am out camping with Mr0mizu, getting in the mood for the weekend ahead! Right now we are only in our back garden.. and I much prefer that to a crowded campsite!

Mr0mizu is looking rather fine in his festival wear thanks to some great items from The Blues Hunt. His sweater is the hunt prize from Razor and he has his casual sandals for his SLink Feet courtesy of The Body Factory! He doesn’t usually like accessorizing but he finally found a necklace he liked thanks to the Ammunition Necklace by AITUI! He’s even grown a huge beard for the event! Im going to have to find some flowers to decorate that with later ~laughs~

He doesn’t look too amused with me trying for a piggy back huh! You can find this freebie pose called King and Queen at Diesel Works! It comes with a crown to wear too, but I didnt want to push my luck too far ~giggles~

I love my Heart Shaped glasses and if you love them too, you can find them as a freebie from Snatch at the District 5 event that began a few days ago. You can also pick up the free gift of a fatpack of Athytia Dresses by Somnia at the same event! The Cecily Necklace is just adorable and is by C’est La Vie as their new free group gift. It comes in a pack of several colours so you can match it to almost everything! Don’t you just love my rainbow boots! They are perfect festival wear and whats great is they are free on the marketplace as a wearable demo by ALB Dream Fashion!

How about this hair though huh? Its so amazing that I had to show you it!  It is made by Olive and you can get it from the Olive You Fundraiser which is an event to help the owner of Olive raise funds to save her home! I always love how SL really shows its community spirit when things like this happen. There are some amazing stores taking part, so be sure to come and take a peek. You’ll be buying some great things and helping a good cause in the process.

And lastly my skin is the Delphine Bare skin in tone 3 by Lumae and is their item for Lazy Sunday.. now I know Sunday was yesterday but the skin is still out so rush over to get it as quick as you can! It is available in 8 tones for a bargain L$75 each! He had to get in on that picture.. he’s just so proud of his beard! And I see some daisies over there with his name on them….

Grab The Eggs Before They Poof Hunt and PINKY*GALS Gift!

Hi all!

Today I have items from three stores that are participating in the Grab The Eggs Before They Poof Hunt and one super cute FREE dress from PINKY*GALS!

First a little info on how the Hunt works.  It is a bit different from your regular hunt…in the Grab The Eggs Before They Disappear Hunt you go to the link I provided and you will find instructions, photos of all the items in the hunt and HINTS on where to look for the eggs.  There are several eggs in each store, containing one item, and the trick is finding the spot, via the hint given, where you might see the egg…BUT you will need to keep a keen eye on that spot because the eggs randomly appear and disappear!  So you may see it one moment and then the next moment it is gone!  It is a great hunt and loads of fun..with fantastic prizes to be found!  Let’s get hunting!

My first outfit is from Sky, it is this adorable pink top, shorts, handbag, bunny headband and flower ring! Such a cute outfit and yours FREE if you find all five eggs before they disappear!  Remember to use the HINTS…they really do help.  The hair is Tomorrow from MAGIKA (not free), the shoes are Plumeria Sandals Rare (gacha item from previous Arcade) from Pure Poison,  and the pose is from aDORKable Poses.
Grab The Eggs Before They Disappear Hunt

Next we have an oh-so-cute Kawaii inspired outfit from Hapi Rabi!  This outfit comes with the bunny bag, bunny ears, dress, knee socks and prim nails (not worn) and is FREE…all you need to do is spot those eggs!  The hair is Tomoko2 (Ruby, limited color) a previous lucky board prize from “”D!va”” Hair.  The Ribbon Cupcake Mouthie is 25L for a transferable fat pack of 8 colors…available at [:Kawaii Couture:] and the shoes are part of an outfit called Cotton Candy Cutie, 25L, also available at [:Kawaii Couture:]!   My pose is from aDORKable Poses.
Grab The Eggs Before They Disappear Hunt

My final outfit shows only a few of the items available from Perch.  Follow the hints, find the eggs and you will be given this cute birdie bag, lunch box and sneakers (there are also a non mesh top and shorts not shown) absolutely FREE!!  Catch those disappearing eggs!  The mesh dress is a FREE gift (no group join required) from PINKY*GALS.  *Note…the SLURL link for PINKY*GALS takes you to the Love Soul shopping mall…walk out of the mall and the shop will be in the first building to your left. My soda is Dollypop from [:Kawaii Couture:] and my pose is a previous subscriber gift from Diesel Works.  The hair bow is Kyary PonPon Alice Bow – Creamy Yellow…available for FREE from .:Midi:Nette:. on the MarketPlace and my hair is Norma (Ruby limited color) a previous COLLABOR88 item from “”D!va”” Hair.
