Make it Quick

Make it Quick Hello again Fab Free’rs I’m back for a quick post about the Fall Tears Hunt item at Sevyn East. I picked up this super cute 1 linden hunt prize the other day while I was also picking up the Sevyn East group gift I blogged here. I thought this skirt with the suspenders and the sleeveless top was too cute to not share it. It is plain but the subtle difference in the textures of each part are what make the solid black outfit work. This pretty mesh dollarbie includes the outfit in standard mesh sizes only. The hint to help you find this FTH prize is “I can be a little nosy.” Don’t wait, this hunt ends September 30th!

Happy Hunting Fab Free! Here are the details.

In the Morning

Greetings FabFree Readers,

In the Morning

 

The week is quickly escaping us and we are hurrying to the weekend. In your rush, don’t miss this stylish duster for the group at Byrne. The ‘Victor Duster’ comes in the slate gray I’m showing and a cobalt blue as well and you receive both in the gift. Victor comes in the standard mesh sizes XS-XL and has a good alpha layer. However, be warned. There is a bit of a glitch in that there is no size M in the slate gray. Though it’s labeled as “Slate Gray M” it is the cobalt blue. I normally wear the standard Mesh size M but the mesh size S of this duster fit me actually rather well.  The quality of the details and build are well worth the small trouble with sizing/color.  Byrne‘s group is free to join and there are many past gifts out for sale at a reduced cost.

I needed something simple to go underneath the duster and found just the thing on the Marketplace. This is the ‘Male Shirt Black” from PobZeb. It also comes in the standard mesh sizes XS-XL and for just 1L, it was a great bargain.

I remain most sincerely yours,
Gabe's Signiture

Cardigan Weather

Cardigan Weather

It will be cardigan weather soon, and the Harvest Hunt is proving lucrative if you want to fill your inventory with fall ready clothes. I picked up this excellent outfit for just 1L and a little hunting time at Purple Passions Designs. It includes the Cardigan, Mens V Neck Slim Top, and Mens Casual Chino Pants all in one box. Each piece is separate for individual wear and each has it’s own alpha. There was also a pair of dress shoes and a fedora in the gift (not shown in the picture above) that were quite nice as well.

For 1L this gift is well worth hunting down. The textures are spot on and it is mesh in all the standard sizes to accommodate a perfect fit.

It’s apple picking time! And I love this windblown looking hairstyle that says “fall” that you can pick up right now at KoKoLoReS FREE for September if you hurry! That’s because right now through September 15th, the join fee is waived. You can join the group for FREE and pick up this beautiful style in a fatpack of colors for this month’s group gift.

For just 1L I also hunted down Moolala’s contribution to the Fall Tears Hunt. It is this pretty outfit called Mercury which includes the shorts and bandana style top. You’ll get all the standard sizes plus fitmesh sizes to fit Maitreya, Belleza, and Slink.

Blue Twist

Blue Twist

Out of the blue… I decided to get a little twisted… and put together a quick outfit to share with all of you.

The Twisted Hunt is on, and while this hunt is a tough one, the hunt gifts are well worth the finding. My amazing Rune in Blue mesh shirt (it comes in all the standard sizes) is the Twisted Hunt gift that is yours FREE when you hunt it down at Roped Passion’s main-store. There is also a nice ladies gift, two side gifts, and you can get the shirt in grey for only 25L if you so desire. A pretty fantastic deal, if I don’t say so myself.

I was also checking out the Fall Tears Hunt and when I started unpacking my boxes, was pleased to discover a pair of classically styled blue pants that worked perfect with my blue shirt from Roped Passion’s.

Stop by Horr Menswear and do a bit of hunting for the Fall Tears Hunt and this pair of blue slacks in all the standard sizes is yours for 1L and your hunting time. The cut is superb and they have a nice detailing of seams and pockets on the back rear end. These paired nicely with my shirt, but would go well with just about anything from dressing up to casual shirts as well.

T.G.I.F.

TGIFIt’s Fri-yay!!! Hello hello Fab Free’rs, I hope you’re enjoying this fine day, or are about to have a great weekend. As for me, I’m glad to be here sharing my Fabulous finds with you. For today I wanted to focus on hair and makeup. In my personal opinion one of the best things about Second Life is the ability to infinitely customize the look of your avatar. To say that my personal taste is eclectic would be an understatement, I love the freedom SL gives me to change my look entirely on a whim. That said, not all changes need to be dramatic. Sometimes something as simple as a new hairstyle, a new set of eyes, a bold eyeliner, or a different shade of lipstick can be all the change you need.

Speaking of hairstyles, I really like this FREE gift from Moda. I think the half up half down messy bun a great mix of casual and effortlessly chic. There’s no need to join a group or slap a board to get this FREEbie from Moda. The gift is FREE for everyone, and includes a chest-friendly fit. This is the only hair color included, however it’s FREE and really it’s quite pretty. To get this gift, head to the very back of the Moda store and click on the vendor. There are also several other non-group and group gifts waiting.
Double Take Okay, I know they are mildly distracting, but please do your best to ignore the odd little shadows that appeared in these photos! lol I wanted to give a side by side comparison of an already lovely skin with the addition of some various makeup appliers. Also, check out those eyes! The pretty mesh eyes are a FREE gift available to everyone at Dulce Secrets. I wouldn’t have guessed pink and silvery grey eyes would have been so pretty and passably natural looking. I am however, pleasantly surprised at how unique and pretty these eyes from Dulce Secrets look. You can get these pretty pink peepers for FREE by clicking the gift vendor next to the Midnight Mania board at Dulce Secrets, no group needed.

Next, the deep dark winged liner with the white added to the waterline that speaks to my soul is from Pink Acid. I was so excited when I came across it! I know, I’m a complete nerd and I don’t even care. I’m a sucker for beautifully done heavy winged eyeliner. I think my inability to create this look on myself in real life might make me covet it even more in Second Life! lol This Catwa applier by Pink Acid is available on the Marketplace for just 1 linden. You’ll also find a classic system layer in the package, so a mesh head isn’t a must.

Finally, the purple/mauve lipstick is another applier I picked up for FREE on the Marketplace from a shop called Shiny Stuffs. This FREE wearable demo is also an applier for Catwa heads only. Not only does an applier like this one give you the pop of color, but they often appear to change the shape of your lips, as you can see in the above photo. Ultimately, this fun FREE wearable demo by Shiny Stuffs is a beautiful color, and well worth the effort if you wear a Catwa head.

Here are the details, Enjoy!/

Hair  – [MODA] PETTY BUN (caramel/ombre) – FREE Gift *Worn with Catwa hairbase included w/Catwa heads

Home From Work

Home From Work

When I saw that there was a hunt dedicated to work, working, and various jobs, I was really thrilled on a number of levels. I know that often there are contests in Second Life where you dress up to fit various themes of employment, but also I felt that this was a great opportunity for Second Life designers to show solidarity for unsung heroes. I was not disappointed. The hunt was full of wonderful things to celebrate jobs of all walks of life.

In the end, I decided to showcase this 1L nurse’s uniform from Blade & Rain. It is a one-piece mesh outfit that comes in all the standard sizes and includes a good alpha layer. What I appreciate most about it, is that it’s “real” nursing wear instead of the “sexy nurse” outfits you usually see. I really admire those who are hard at work in the medical field and it’s nice to have this option available for contests, cosplay, or what-have-you and for only 1L this is a great opportunity to pick up a great working outfit.

The Hi Ho, Hi Ho, It’s Off to Work I Go Hunt ends on Sept 16, so be sure to get out there and hunt down the goodies before it’s over!

Games

Good Morning, FabFree Readers.

Games

Most of the Hunts on the grid are winding down with today being the last day of August. But a few are starting up now, such as the Games of Thrones Hunt in Westeros. This hunt is slightly different in that there are multiple prizes in multiple hunt objects. One hunt object is at the designers main shop while the other prizes are scattered around a central “fair”.  I was able to find this men’s denim jacket with attached hoodie and shirt from “It’s Gau!” at the main fair area for 1L. This is “Jeans Jacket” and it comes in the standard mesh sizes XS-XL and has a good alpha layer. Be sure to pick up the note card that is offered when you land at the fair. It has all the pictures and clues for the Hunt prizes.

The Game of Thrones Hunt in Westeros runs until September 7th.

I remain most sincerely yours,
Gabe's Signiture

Blooming

Hey there FabFree!

Blooming

I’ve got a quick one for you today as our time for the August Hunts draws near to a close.  I found this super cute little sundress. ‘Bloom’ from Lomo by [ IBAN ] on the Addicted to Appliers Hunt. I wasn’t expecting to find much for me on this hunt as I don’t use the mesh body but Lomo has included a standard FitMesh and Alpha layerfor this gift as well as appliers for SLink, Maitreya, TMP and Hourglass. I love the delicate lacy look and it seems perfect for the warm end of summer days.

The Addicted to Appliers Hunt runs until August 31st so don’t delay!
