Wiggling My Fingers

Snapshot_001

Hey there Fabulouses!  On March 8th, Slink announced that they had updated their mesh hands in the redelivery system to Bento for FREE for those that have already purchased their slink hands.  My IM box was lighting up like crazy with the news, and the notecards were flying in… Yet I put off going to pick up the free update worrying that it would be confusing, have some kind of costly catch and be time consuming to set up.

Procrastination

I went on with my week as per usual, all the while thinking…  “I should just go get them, and figure it out“, but it wasn’t until last weekend when there was some fun chat going on in the Fabulously Free in SL group about these new hands!  Fab member Brinlea cracked me up when she mentioned that she was so excited about her new Slink Dynamic Hands, that she was logging in just to watch them move around.  News of this inspired me to head down there and pick them up!

Boy was I surprised to find out that:

    1. They were easy to figure out.
    2. No purchase of new skin appliers was necessary as I could use the slink appliers I already had to match up to  my skins.
    3. There are plenty of affordable bento animations and poses available to make your hands move.
    4. It comes with basic poses, and nail add-ons.

See for yourself!

I made a couple of quick little GIF snaps of my avatar wearing the Slink Dynamic Hands with a Bento Animation so that you can see how the new hands have movement.  SO COOL! You’ll be logging in like Brinlea and I to watch your hands move too…

What’s “Bento” ?

Here’s how Jeremy Linden explains what bento actually is…  https://community.secondlife.com/knowledgebase/english/enhanced-skeleton-project-bento-r773/

More information can be found on the Slink Blog – https://slinkstyle.com/2017/03/08/slink-dynamic-hands-aka-project-bento-comes-to-slink/

In closing…

In closing, I did want to mention that if you picked up the free update right away when it was released, that you should go back and make sure you have Version 1.3 as they fixed a couple bugs.  You should also know that you’ll need to be on a Bento compatible viewer to see the movement.

A day at home

A day at home

Homebody

It’s the middle of the week and I’ve put adventuring on hold for a little bit to take a look at all the free gifts and dollarbies that have been collected over the past several days. With events such as the Vintage Gacha Fair and Liaison Collaborative’s Birthday round, not to mention fun hunts such as the Into the Blue Hunt and great deals on the Marketplace, my loot bag has been filled to the brim.  This casual (finally!) look today was pulled from all of the above and here are the details top to toe;

Let your hair down

Today’s hairstyle is called No Diva, a free gift that’s been generously set out by no.match at their Liaison Collaborative booth. While I’ve heard whispers of the no.match brand before (isn’t Carson’s celebrated new do’ from that store?) I’ve not yet had a chance to try out their products. As the old adage goes, there’s no time like the present and suffice to say I was very gleeful when I tried this hairstyle on for size. To be honest, it was really off to a promising start when I saw that the prize prim was labeled as ‘unicorn’ and guessed that I was in for some really wild and special colors. The multicolored shades go hand in hand with the lovely over the shoulder swirl of the No Diva hairstyle. If red and rainbow tones don’t suit your taste, however, the gift package contains a hud which lets you choose from twelve different color sets.  Other contents of the gift package include:

  • No Diva hairstyle in two different sizes
  • Alpha layer
  • Package containing tattoo hairbases for classic avatars
  • Package containing applier hairbases for mesh heads (TMP, Lelutka, Catwa – Jessica, Omega)
  • Face moles tattoo layer

The birthday round of the Liaison Collaborative closes its doors on the 30th of this month so go and snag this sweet hairstyle before then. Also, Serena’s made a lovely post of some of the other free gifts available at the Liaison Collaborative so get your hands on those too!

To the Market(place) we’ll go

Personally, I’ve found that one of the best times to visit the Marketplace is when I’m stalking Lucky Letter boards/chairs/balloons. While attempting to multitask might make me miss my letter or that magical wildcard round, sometimes it’s worth it when you find a store like !gO! which offer up a plenty of varied dollarbies for sale. One of the first of said dollarbies to catch my eye, thanks to its pretty orange shade, was the Nico shirt. This spaghetti strap top is certainly Spring and Summer-ready and comes in five standard mesh sizes (XXS-L) with two nifty alpha layers to help with the fitting. The alpha layers are split according to size with sizes XXS-M sharing one alpha layer and the L size with a larger one.  As mentioned the !gO! store boasts several different dollarbies so if you love clothing in the Boho or Vintage style, spend some time taking a look around.

Speaking of Vintage

While I’ve talked about Faida’s Vintage Gacha Fair gacha offering in my last post, I thought that the free gift that they’ve kindly put out at their stall deserved a mention as well. I’m always looking for a good pair of pants and the steamy leather pack certainly fit the bill nicely. While capris can be a rather iffy subject (we all have that one style of clothing that’s pretty low on our list right?) for me, I did like how these ended in soft tiered fabric. Not only did it add a nice feminine touch to the outfit, it also provided a dash of patterns (tatarn) to what would have otherwise been an outfit comprised of only solid colors. The steamy leather capris come in five standard mesh sizes (XXS-L) with an alpha layer also included in the gift package. These capris are one of two gifts at Faida’s stalls and let’s just say the other is really great if you roleplay. The Vintage Gacha Fair ends on the 19th so that means it’s only a couple of days more for you to scoop up gifts and play some great gacha machines.

Hunting for shoes

In lieu of pink sneakers, pretty and well made blue ones will do just fine. When I saw the ad for Madison keds by Wicked on my flickr feed, I knew I had to have them for my growing and growing and growing collection. It was pretty exciting to realize that these sneakers would be available for just 1L for the Into the Blue Hunt and you’ll get not one but two different pairs in the prize package. I’m wearing the jeans version in the picture above and while the shot doesn’t do the pair justice there are pretty scalloped flowers on the body of the sneakers. You don’t need mesh feet to slip into these sneakers as the prize comes along with an alpha layer and shoe base. The Madison keds themselves have a resize scrip in them for easy fitting and permissions are set to copy so you can make backups. The Into the Blue hunt is ending on the 29th of this month so get out your nets and hut out your blue butterflies by then and while you’re at Wicked slap their no group needed mini mania. They have lucky chairs too!

And that’s a wrap. The chores are done and all of the animals look like they’re going behave (for now) all that’s left is convincing Damon over here that Halloween is not for several months. Someone tell him that his puppy face is not enough for people to give him candy out of season; please? Oh and before I leave, here’s a closer look at the Madison keds to give you a better idea of the design on them and a look into the other pair that you’re in store for should you decide to hunt these out at Wicked.

What a ride

What a ride

Time flies doesn’t it?

I was looking through the posts I’ve made here at FabFree and to my surprise realized that I’ve just passed the fifty posts mark. It still kinda feels like yesterday when I was scrambling through the new blogger application and trying not to ‘derp out’ as I filled in the notecard. In some ways, being able to write for a blog that I’ve long admired still feels more than a little surreal but to commemorate this milestone I’ve decided to recreate the styling that I did for my very first post at FabFree (if anyone’s curious it’s here). While the outfit that’s shown here today certainly isn’t a carbon copy by any means I felt that it still had that ‘cute with an edge’ vibe going for it. Here are the details;

High waisted

If you’ve been following Kat’s or Carson’s posts, you’d have notice that there are a ton of fun hunts going on for March. Seeing that it’s been a while since I’ve been on the trail, I decided to grab my trusty magnifying glass and do a little bit of sleuthing for myself. The Paws, Tails, and Whiskers Hunt 2 looked very promising and I ended up at (P3) Pixel Purrfect Productions to see if I could suss out where their prize was hidden. Turns out that luck was on my side and for just 1L the Tish Skirt became a great new addition to my inventory as I don’t own many skirts in this high waisted style. The skirt is very adorable with its anime print, sweet seafoam shades, and silky material mingling very well together. If you’re like me and appreciate the little details, you’ll also love the well-made buttons and bows on the skirt front. The Tish Skirt comes in the following sizes:

  • Standard Mesh (XXS-L) with alpha layer
  • Slink Physique and Hourglass
  • Maitreya

While you’re at (P3) Pixel Purrfect Productions, be sure to poke around some more as they have no group needed lucky chairs upstairs that cycle through the letters rather quickly. The Paws, Tails, and Whiskers Hunt 2 is running until the 31st of March so if you’re looking for cute animal-themed clothing, accessories or decor be sure to hit the hunt trail before then.

Lucky Letters

Now that I had a cute new skirt I was suddenly hit with the problem of what to pair it up with. Would it be a button down or a more casual t-shirt? Should I go with bright colors or a muted one so as to not overwhelm the entire outfit? What I did know was that the top had to be short or something that came in a clothing layer so that the meshes won’t end up cutting into each other (SL styling problems amirite?) and with that thought in mind I remembered that I had recently won the Teeny Sheer Halter Tops from one of the Lucky Letter boards at Sn@tch. These comfy halter tops were just perfect as they came in classic clothing layers (shirt and tank top) and since this is Sn@tch applier huds for Slink Physique and the Omega system were generously thrown into the as well. Not only that but you’ll also be getting ten different colors in the free prize package and needless to say I found a very fitting one to go with the skirt. Just a little note, however, the tops certainly live up to their name and are a little sheer so get that tape ready if you’re so inclined.

Inked up again

Just like socks and fishnets, tattoos can cause a bit of a hiccup when I’m dressing too. Once again generous creators come to the rescue and today I’d like to highlight Reckless. Not only are their tattoos intricate and well detailed, their group gifts come in classic layers and appliers for mesh bodies. Take Vida for example, the gift package contains:

  • Classic tattoo layers (fresh and faded)
  • Jacket layer (fresh and faded)
  • Shirt layer (fresh and faded)
  • Tank top layer (fresh and faded)
  • TMP Applier Hud
  • 3-in-1 Applier Hud for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink mesh bodies

I am once again very pleased with the result of wearing a classic tattoo layer with the corresponding applier, it’s the best of both worlds really. Vida is one of the group gifts that’s currently out at the Reckless main store and while there is a 75L join fee in place, you’ll be able to get past group gifts as well.

What a ride (boots)

Booted feet

I just can’t keep away from boots for very long and certainly not when they’re steampunk themed like the Charming Boots from Monomania. If you’ve already guessed that the gears and the baroque detailing on the body of the boots are my favorite part then you’re right! The burnished gold accents on this boots certainly don’t hurt it either as does the fact that you don’t need mesh feet to be able to wear them. The Charming Boots have a resize script in them and in the gift folder, you’ll also receive and alpha layer and boots base to make fitting a painless experience.  These lovely boots are a free group gift for Teleport Hub which is currently holding a free join exercise until the 15th of this month.

And that’s a wrap! Before I hit the grid again, I’d like to thank the FabFree team and all of you wonderful readers out there for having me here on the blog. Time flies when you’re having fun and it’s been nothing but a blast! Here’s to fifty more posts eh? I’ll catch you guys later!

The Eyes Have It

TallulahWell Hello There! Hi Fab Feer’s, thanks for stoppin’ by. As you can see, I have a lot of purple grey goin’ on today and I am loving it! On a quick side note, Second Life can be weirdly lonely sometimes so I got myself a puppy! This cute little girl’s name is Tallulah. I adore her. Though she was by no means free, I’ll add the information on where to “adopt”a puppy of your own in the credits below, should anyone be interested. Now, back to the FREE stuff!

Everything’s Grey 

To start with, this look was entirely inspired by this knotted t-shirt from Cheeky. I love the mottled muted colors, especially the purple and grey variations. I’m not at all sad about the pentagram either. The shirt is Cheeky’s contribution to the Glam or Goth Hunt. The hunt prize includes this mesh top in body specific sizes including Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), TMP, and Slink (Physique, Hourglass). Once you are inside the Cheeky shop, you’ll be hunting a single rose. The hint for Cheeky’s prize is “Is that a door?”. The Glam or Goth Hunt is a dollarbie hunt, so you’ll pay 1 linden for your prize.

Turn Around Bright Eyes

These hauntingly pretty bright purple eyes are part of the most recent group gift a Cureless. The vibrant colors and cat-eye style pupils really caught my attention. This FREE group gift includes a set of mesh eyes, and a hud that works as a color/texture change eyes for the included set. It also works as an Omega applier for other Omega compatible eyes. There are 12 total color options with this awesome gift. Most of the colors are bright vibrant colors, a few are soft pastels. To get these gorgeous eyes for yourself you’ll need to join the Cureless group. The Cureless updates group costs a mere 50 lindens to join. The gift can be obtained in the past group notices, or by heading over to the Cureless main store.

Kiss Me Deadly

Finally, I personally love this gradient grey lip color. It reminds me of some of the alternative liquid lipstick colors I’ve seen out in the real world. Needless to say, I was super excited to find it was a FREE, wearable demo at Petit Cambre. The “demo” and the full version work for Catwa or 6DOO heads only. To get your wearable demo version of the 6DOO lipstick applier at Petit Chambre, simply purchase the Demo for zero linden. You’ll find the wearable color in the center of the applier hud.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

The simple things

Field of flowers

A field of flowers

Or at least a hut that’s filled with some. The blacksmith who owns it and his wife were rather perplexed when I asked if I could take some snapshots in this half tumbled down shack on their property but the wildflowers were just too pretty to ignore; knowing my luck my next choice would probably have been somewhere that would have given me a bad case of poison ivy. Anyways, this modest backdrop proved to be perfect for the theme that I was going for; simplicity. With a game like SL, it’s often easy to get carried away with bright colors, outrageous prints, and giant pig hats but once in a while, you’ll find a dress that’s so quietly elegant that you’ll have to have it.

I’m talking about Azul’s February group gift. More often than not empire dresses will help you achieve a very flattering silhouette and that’s exactly the case when you slip on this lovely off shoulder number. I simply adore the cut of this dress but if you’re worried about it being too simple the bodice is decorated with subtle patterns to add that little bit of oomph (do people still say oomph?) to this understated look. Neither black nor white is going out of style anytime soon so this dress is a keeper. It comes in the following sizes:

  • 5 Fitmesh sizes (XXS-L)
  • 1 Fitmesh Slink size
  • 1 Fitmesh Maitreya size
  • 1 Fitmesh Belleza size

Included in the gift package is a nifty alpha layer as well as an added flexi skirt to give you dress some flowy movement. If you’re a little bit puzzled as to why I’m talking (writing?) about February’s group gift when we’re now well into March, well, Azul has a lot (and I do mean a lot) of their past group gifts out (judging by the names gifts come on the regular as well). They’re all gorgeously designed, well made and absolutely free as there’s no cost to joining the group.

Field of flowers

Shimmer and shine

At first, I had intended to present the dress without any accessories. It’s beautiful as is and able to stand on it’s own but then I stopped by the Marketplace and came across a store called Kosh and it’s wide selection of dollarbies. The Rapture necklace and earrings caught my eye as I felt that they had a cool steampunk look to them (they reminded me of gears and bolts welded together). When I put them on, though, I discovered that the green gem in their centers was rather reflective and had and faintly glowed. It was a really nice, detailed touch. There are no resize scripts for both pieces of jewelry but permissions are set to mod and copy so you’ll be able to make backups if stretching or moving of prims go awry. The Rapture necklace and earrings cost 1L respectively and do poke around the Kosh store as they have other interesting dollarbie accessories and clothing items.

And that’s a wrap. Mr. and Mrs. Blacksmith have asked if I wanted to stay for lunch and the food smells too good to decline their offer. Let’s just hope the owls remember their table manners. Catch you guys later!

Stranded

Stranded

A crumbling lighthouse and

Nothing but sea for miles and miles and miles. I was hopping from sim to sim in search of the perfect backdrop for my latest finds and it seems that I’ve gone and stranded myself quite literally in the middle of nowhere ( oops -sad trombone sounds in the distance-). As I take a break from trying to find a way off this lonely little island (those payphones on the pier could be the answer) I suppose I could tell you all about this little look that I pieced together. -Clears throat- Here goes;

The start of the month is always such an exciting time by way of scooping up those group gifts. If you’re in an awesomely generous group like MOoH! however, things are spiced up even more with raffles, monthly gift cards and group discounts thrown into the pot. I always get a little excited when I visit MOoH! to take a peek at their weekly 50% off group deal; needless to say, it was just impossible to get the gift card out fast enough when I caught a glimpse of the Hope dress. It’s also impossible to pinpoint which feature of this dress is my favorite. From it’s pretty white and rose pink color scheme to its flowy tired drawstring skirt everything about it simply screamed spring readiness and I was very happy to add it to my ever-growing collection from MOoH! The Hope dress comes in a plethora of sizes as well which include:

  • 5 Standard mesh and Fitmesh sizes (XXS-L)
  • 1 size for the Maitreya mesh body
  • 1 size for the Slink Physique and Hourglass bodies respectively

The Hope dress is only on the group discount board until the 9th of March so hurry down to grab your copy. While you’re there don’t forget to snag your group gift as well, Love has showcased the outfit {HERE} and tap the gift card and raffle boards too. Good luck!

Marketplace ink

I’ve been looking for some new ink to try out for a while now and stopped by the Marketplace to see if I could ferret out some good deals. Turns out I was really spoiled for choice and it took me a good while to finally decide on the Hise tattoo by Wolf Studio because the beautifully intricate patterns distinctly reminded me of Henna. The best part is that the Hise tattoo cost only 1L and both classic avatars, as well as avatars with mesh bodies, will be able to enjoy it as the tattoo comes in:

  • Classic tattoo layers (both fresh and faded)
  • Appliers for Maitreya, Belleza and Slink mesh bodies (both fresh and faded)

The appliers are all fitted into one easy to use Hud so you won’t have to worry about inventory clog.

Do the dip dye

Discovering new hair stores are always great and one of the newest additions to the Fabulously Free in SL group gift list pointed me right in the direction of EscalateD. While I’ve caught glimpses here and there of this particular merchant on Flickr the hustle of SL often takes me in the opposite direction so it was great to have the Ashlae acting as an anchor to keep me on the right track. The Ashlae hair is a great casual style which is available to you for free with your free FabFree tag activated. There are two versions of the hair included in the gift package, the normal one and a slightly larger version for chestier avatars. What I really like about the Ashlae hair is its dip dye style that you can modify to your mood and preference using a nifty hud. With it, you’ll be able to choose between fifteen different vibrant tones for the base color as well as the streaks.

While you’re at the store there is another free (no group needed) hair gift to pick up as well which severs as a color tester and if you’re so inclined you can join the EscalateD group for 150L to take advantage of the group perks (lucky letters, midnight mania board, generous group gift and store credit.)

And that’s a wrap. I really need to find my way off this island, someone needs to be home to feed Commander not to mention the owls and the horses and the ducks and the pelican and…you get the picture. Till next time guys!

Once Upon A February 14th…

Urgh! She thought as she looked at her blind date from across the table. How in the world did I let myself get saddled in with this mook? So far, this exercise at being sociable (as her friends had put it) was going at an excruciatingly slow pace and she couldn’t help thinking about all the events and hunts and sales and fairs and gacha markets that she could be exploring at the moment instead of being stuck here. At least there was dancing. Or more to a point, one dance. The only charitable observation she could make about the whole thing was that the music had been decent enough though her partner had managed to step on her dress no less than fifteen times (she counted. really). He had been apologetic, even pretended to be interested in where she had gotten it from but when she started talking about how it was a free gift from KIB Designs for the 2nd Level Event, his eyes went glassy and distant. Not wanting to be daunted, she barreled on to say that she loved the dress’ romantic full skirt and simple color scheme; that the belted detailing was something to be admired but that only got a faint nod out of him. Worse, when she mentioned that even though the dress only came in sizes for Maitreya, Belleza and Slink (hourglass as well) mesh bodies it had an alpha layer included in the gift package so that classic avatars could try out the dress too she only received a blank look for her efforts. After that fiasco, she stopped trying. No need to tell him that the 2nd Level Event was only running until the 28th and that there were more goodies to be had.

The food here isn’t half bad. Though…is he checking his phone? Is he watching a football game on it?! She had half a mind to ask him to put the cell on the table so that they could watch the game together, at least that would put her out of her misery. The courses came and went and he surprised her by asking if she wanted to take a stroll on the boardwalk instead of just taking her home. It was chilly out but he offered her his jacket and complimented her hair. Maybe things are starting to look up. Since it had all gone downhill the last time she had talked about freebies, she bit her tongue on how the Luna Phase hairstyle was currently on the no group needed Midnight Mania board at Mello. Kept silent on how the prize package contained two variations on the hairdo (one with lovely curling horns and one without) and how you’d not only receive a hud with sixteen vivid colors for the hair but also a separate one for the horns as well that allowed you to customize your look. She bottled that all up, muttered a Thank you in return and shifted her gaze up towards the full moon. Wait. Full moon? Full…Oh no! She should have made sure. She should have specified. Oh…

Several hours later she came too, propped up against a table and with sunlight shining in her eyes. Squinting she looked around and, that’s ketchup right? Please tell me that’s ketchup. Her date was nowhere in sight. Well…not all of him. She thought with a guilty little cringe as she looked at the bloody heart sitting on the table next to her. As far as keepsakes go, she’s certainly had, stranger.

Background details

The backdrop I’m using for the picture above is out now at Chaotic Creative for the Stupid Cupid Hunt 5. For just 1L you’ll get this awesomely detailed (though very very messy) Bad Breakup Propbox. The propbox comes furnished with the table, heart, and knife as shown in the picture and a light fixing that isn’t shown and has four inbuilt poses to choose from, pictured is the one called ‘Numb’.  There are two different versions of the bloodied walls included in the prize folder, one for dark walls (shown) and the other for light walls. Permissions for the Propbox are set to copy so you can make as many versions of it as you like with a land impact of six for the propbox itself and a land impact of five for the light fixing. Chaotic Creative is certainly a store to watch. If you’re interested in more products from this merchant they have prizes for older hunts out on the counter of their main room.

And that’s a wrap. I did promise to tell you how my Valentine’s Day blind date went and I think we can all agree that it was boring to be sure. Would any of you know how to get bloodstains out though? …nevermind I need to get back to playing Resident Evil 7.  Catch you guys later! Oh and here’s a full picture of the propbox itself so you can see it in all its glory:
