Returning & Retiring Goodies at Death Row Designs

Returning & Retiring @ DRD

Hey, Fab Free! I wanted to make a quick post to let you know about an offer currently available at Death Row Designs (DRD). Lots of past group gifts await for free, so read on, Fab Free!

“Returning” Gifts

Currently, all of DRD’s past group gifts are available for free. The store has a sale going on right now which lasts until March 18. During the sale, the store has returned all of their past gifts for a limited time. There are 45 gifts in total- so a few years’ worth of gifts to be claimed. To get the gifts join the Death Row Designs group for free and click the rows of vendors which are stacked at the back of the room by the entrance of the store. You will also find recent month’s gifts to the left of the entrance. From what I understand, these gifts with be retiring from the store permanently when the sale is over so you will want to get over to DRD quickly!

Eclectic Decor

There are some very unique and interesting items in this batch of group gifts. Included in the bunch are decor items, accessories, hats, and jewelry. I have displayed some of the decor gifts in my living room above. The quality of the mesh in these items is stunning, so grab these while you can! Again, these gifts will be retiring soon so go quickly to snatch these up!

Have a fun weekend, Fab Free!

Through Anything

Through Anything

No matter what, my guy and I can make it through anything. Through thick and through thin, through the crashing of planes, the exploding of bombs, a new world regime! Anything at all could happen, and we’d come out on top, and look awesome while doing so. Okay, I admit that was a bit dramatic, but thanks to Second Life we can live through our stories. Thanks to Contraption, DRD, and Birth, we can look the part too!

I do love it when Blue and I find unique, whimsical, and otherwise outside the ordinary items inexpensively or better yet for free in Second Life.  Keep reading for info about each of these fantastic group gifts, and peep the full list of credits and links at the end. Then you can go on your own adventures.

The foundation of my look for this post, and Blue’s, is this amazing jacket by Contraption. Not only is it highly detailed, it comes sized to fit both male and female avatars. It also includes a hud that allows you to change the metallic embellishments to gold or silver.

You’ll find this cool gift waiting for you at Contraption behind the desk.

Anywhere But Here

Anywhere But Here

Alright guys, I’ve left the beach and I’m gonna hitch a ride to anywhere but here.  Sometimes city life does get to be a bit of a bother, so I’m eschewing the concrete jungle with a firm hand and I’m going mobile!

Hit the Road, Aline

My hitchhiking look is all inspired by a fun hunt that’s going on right now at Death Row Designs (aka DRD).  It’s not necessarily the easiest thing in the world, but it was pretty entertaining!  I landed at the main store and joined the group for FREE, then grabbed the hunt HUD.  Walking along the main path of the store, you’ll find little lunch bags all over the place!  You give them a click, and inside will be your fun wearable prize (I just strewed my stuff all over the place so you can see it, but all the items are wearable and feature a great bento hold animation).  The tricky bit with this hunt, is that all the bags you’re hunting for are not static, in other words, once you click on it it will disappear into the ether and show up somewhere else.  Don’t let that deter you, I got the hunt done fairly quickly without too much head scratching!  Once you collect all the prizes, you get the final prize which is this cool backpack which comes in both male and female sizes.  Can’t say no to that!

A Comfy Look

To match my hitchhiking mood, I clearly needed the right outfit for hitting the road, and this great one by Crom fits the bill perfectly.  I grabbed it over at The Wash Sizzling Summer Cart Sale for a measly 25L.  Perfect!  This outfit comes sized for Freya, Venus, Maitreya, Ocacin, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, Tonic Fine, Voluptuous and Fitmesh Sizes from S-L with an Alpha layer.

Hit the Road, Readers!

Zombie Hunter

Zombie Hunter

To get myself into the mood for Halloween, I decided to grab my crossbow and head over to Dystopia in search of zombies. Unfortunately, my car broke down, so it looks like I’ll be staying for a while.

Hang on, I think I see something moving behind that big pile of trash…

(For the record, there don’t appear to be any zombies at Dystopia. But if you’re looking for a well-designed, post-apocalyptic sim, you should definitely pay it a visit.)

The Outfit

What inspired my look today was the September group gift from Ghee. I’ve seen it styled a number of different ways on Flickr, but for some reason, when I put it on, I felt all Sarah Conner from The Terminator. All I had to do was add a weapon, and I was a bad@$$ zombie hunter! 😎

The VIP 09/17 GIFT from Ghee is a complete outfit that includes the cargo pants, tank top, and boots. The ribbed tank comes with a texture-change HUD with 6 different colors — black, yellow, orange, blue, pink, and the beige color I’m wearing — so you could definitely wear the tank as part of another outfit.

Sizes for the pants and top include:

  • Standard mesh XXS-L with alpha
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique

The boots are “one size fits all.” Just remember to remove your mesh feet first.

The Accessories

I shopped around quite a bit to find the perfect accessories for my look:

  • Hair – I picked up the Rossella Hair by Tableau Vivant at The Arcade for 50L. I love this “roots” version because everyone knows zombie hunters don’t have time to dye their hair, right?
  • Sunglasses – These super cool DESTRUCTINATOR glasses by TBF are available on the Marketplace for 10L. There’s no resizer, but you can edit > stretch to change the size.
  • Necklace – Another gacha, this time by Dahlia at The Imaginarium for 50L. Click for a resizer menu.
  • Bracelet – An oldie, but a goodie, by Eli Rae’s Tinkering, available for 5L on the Marketplace. There’s no resizer, and you can’t stretch either, so the size is what it is. Originally shown 4 years ago by Caresia Adored, some SL items just never go out of style. 🙂

The Weapon

No zombie hunter would be complete without a weapon, of course. I selected this scary crossbow by Blackburns, which I found on the Marketplace for 29L. It comes with a wearable version that hooks onto your back (without any straps, which I thought looked a bit odd), as well as the

It comes with a wearable version that hooks onto your back (without any straps, which I thought looked a bit odd), as well as the posed version that I’m showing here, which actually shoots. Oh, and it includes an arrow that you can wear in your head, if you like.

Sadly, I didn’t find any actual zombies to shoot at in Dystopia. But I did have fun firing at the trees on my sim, which scared the daylights out of my dogs. 😛

Happy hunting, folks!

ZZZZZZ

clearsleepJust five more minutes

It was all peachy and peaceful until 6:55AM…  This is my morning routine, done most days like clockwork.

6:55 AM – (opens one eye and tries to muffle the sound of the alarm clock with a pillow)

6:56 AM – (smacks randomly at the night stand trying to turn off “Walking on Sunshine, WHOAH” – misses it and gives up)

6:57 AM – (buries herself under the blankets, head and all, trying harder to hit the snooze button… ahhh  hits it! :))

7:00AM – (Alarm B goes off…  groans into pillow and admits defeat – FINE!)

A few years back, after learning there is just no avoiding the routine, I started setting my alarm five minutes ahead so I wasn’t late.  I believe I have scheduled myself 5 more minutes.  Whatever works, I say!  I was so comfy in my new nightie by United Color, having the most wonderful dream that I just didn’t want to get up, and I certainly didn’t want to change into day clothes, or go to work…  but alas I had to.

Are you a morning person?

Whether you are a morning person or not, you’ll look fantastic in this feminine little nightie.  The Midnight Dress in white is available as a FREE GIFT at The Free Dove in the lingerie section and comes with a texture change HUD that allows you to switch up the lace three different ways.  I zoomed in nice and close so you can see just how detailed the texturing is on this beautiful design.

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya & Isis

Slowly Going Nowhere

Slowly Going NowhereHello again Fab Free’rs! Finally it’s starting to feel like fall where I live. I’m excited to be able to dig out more of my fall wardrobe. Until now, my virtual wardrobe has had to support my love of cold weather clothing. That said, I also find I spend more time outside when the weather is colder. There was something interesting in unique about the “Acid Rain” group gift from Death Row Designs. While definitely not the ideal patio furniture, it certainly tells a story. I also styled my outfit for the cooler weather using a dollarbie hunt prize sweater from Vindiktive.

Role-play is such a huge part of Second Life, and even though I rarely participate in that aspect these days, I’m always inspired by creations in SL that lend themselves to storytelling. After all, story telling is essentially what role-play is all about. This FREE group gift chair and umbrella set from Death Row Designs does just that. The “Acid Rain” set of ruined furniture is highly detailed and has both male and female poses for the chair. Also included in the gift are two hand-held umbrellas which are not shown. When I saw this gift, I instantly thought about where these items had been, who they belonged to, what had happened. It made me think of situations where this furniture fit the scenario, like a post apocalyptic environment. The story started to unfold. That’s why I chose to share this unique gift with you. The Death Row Designs group is FREE to join, just wear your tag and click the gift vendor to get this gift.
THLH VindiktiveNext up, you guessed it, my sweater loving soul found another sweater! This one is the “The High Life Hunt” prize at Vindiktive. I’m not often a fan of high cropped sweaters, but this one I adore. I like the fall colors of the plaid, and the material texture looks like it would be soft and warm to the touch. I even like the mock turtleneck. This hunt is a dollarbie hunt, so the sweater costs just 1 linden. There are no groups to join, just head out to Vindiktive and hunt it down. Included in the package you’ll get the sweater in standard mesh sizes, as well as body specific sizes for Slink Physique, Slink Hour Glass, Maitreya Lara, Bellezia (Isis, Freya, Venus), and TMP. With all the sizes included, this top should be easy to wear for most mesh and classic avatars.
