Yule Review

Yule Review

Good evening, FabFree. I know I rather don’t look like myself this evening but I had to take advantage of the remarkable new free mesh head available at Bespoke. I don’t often get the pleasure of seeing such high quality accessories coming around for the men of Second Life so I grasped this opportunity with some excitement.

This is the “Yule – Elf” head from Bespoke as I said and you can pick it up for free along with four different colored skins at the mainstore. The head comes with two shapes, one male and one female. Both are very well made as are the skins. Yule also includes:
• BoM Head/Body skin “Wood”
• Rigged eyes, eyelashes, mouth
• 6 eye colors
• AO HUD
• Eyebrow Tattoos (BoM)

I can honestly say I like this head and the shape that comes with it. The shape is not simply a handsome human with pointy ears. The shape and proportions of both head and body are very ‘other’. That said, the head responds fully to the slider system and can be made into your preferred shape easily. I left the shape untouched except for two things. I did make the head to body ratio slightly larger and I made the hands slightly smaller.  Simply personal preference, I would consider this head and shape ready to use ‘right out of the box’.

I did encounter a few minor issues. I felt the eyes did not fit inside the sockets well. They clipped a bit at the corners. However this could easily be changed or tweeked. It didn’t help that I wasn’t 100% happy with the colors of eyes offered but that is purely a personal preference and no bad mark against Bespoke. The other issue I had was the AO. The AO runs through a menu that I felt was a bit clunky. The animations were well done but a bit inconvenient to access. All said, I would not consider any of this a reason to not get this head and enjoy it’s use.

I want to say something about the skins both included and the four extra skins available. These are simply some of the best skins I have encountered in Second Life. They are truly astonishing. The details are both subtle and gorgeous. Even if you decide not to use them with the Yule head they are a stunning addition to your wardrobe.
Yule 2
I am uncertain as to how long the Yule head and the skins will be available but it is described as a “Season’s Gift”. If you would like to get this excellent elfin head and skins don’t delay.

Elf!

Elf!

Ya know that scene in “Elf” where Buddy jumps up and down and screams “SANTA… I KNOW HIM”? Yeah… that my mood today! And not just because Elf is my favorite Christmas movie. I’ve been bouncing around the Grid grabbing freebies and Advents and Hunts and Group Gifts like crazy!

In fact you may recognize my cute Christmas flavored top today from Luas. This is the “Nuria” sweater and it was the November group gift waaaay back in 2019. “So why are you showing it?” You may ask… Mostly ’cause it’s so cute and there are new folks joining Second Life or our Blog all the time.  Don’t hate on our beloved no0bs! 😉  Just go join the Luas group for only 50L and help yourself to a ton of current and past gifts!

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • SLink Hourglass

My little ornament wish for y’all is from the very eclectic designer, Magnetic. If you haven’t checked this fun shop out yet… do it. I “discovered” it today while on the Joyeux Noel Hunt. Magnetic has loaded it’s gift box with a fatpack of these ornaments with a hold animation for just 2L. Not too much for a bit of Holiday cheer!

Now, let’s circle back to “Elf” ’cause this is the star of today’s show! My super cute “Elf” hat! This is the totally free Advent gift for day #four over at Shanti!  If you heard a shrill ‘OMG SQUeeeeeeeeeeeee’ a few hours ago… well that was me opening this gift. Shanti has a full Advent tree loaded with awesome gifts up for us and you don’t need a Group tag to indulge. But even if you did, the group is free to join!

So get your hats and Christmas duds and ornaments and welcome the best Season of the year!

Hi There Fab Free’rs! I don’t know about you, but now and then I could use some fantasy and whimsy in my life, especially when Second Life makes it so easy. The above photo was completely inspired by the Women’s Stuff Hunt prize at Ohemo. The floral jewelry set is their free Women’s Stuff Hunt gift, and I’m super excited to share it with you. The pose used is another freebie, it’s part of the Lyrium gift at the Pose Fair. Keep reading for all the information and details.

Yes, the full jewelry set is a free Women’s Stuff Hunt prize at Ohemo. Find the little red tshirt, and pay it 0 linden, and the hunt prize will be delivered to you. This gorgeous set includes the earpiece for both ears, headband, and necklace, all with a color change hud that has quite a few color options for the flowers, three choices for the headband, and the option to pick gold or silver for the metal bits.
Ohemo - Myranflower set (SL-Womenstuff hunt May 2019)

If you haven’t made your way to the Pose Fair yet, I highly suggest you go. Along with the pose used in the above photo, Lyrium has 2 full sets of poses as a free gift to the Pose Fair group members. The group is free to join. The part I like the most (aside from the nicely done poses for free!) is that the poses also come in a hud. This means you can wear the pose hud and cycle through the poses without having to rez a pose ball or dig through your inventory. There are 5 poses in this “Heavenly” set, with mirrored versions for each. Additionally, there is a second set of poses with this gift called “Falling.” Seriously, do not miss out on this awesome gift!

Summer Elf
Hello There Fab Free’rs! Sadly our weekend is coming to an end, but I’m not going to let that get me down, and you shouldn’t either. To help keep away the pending Monday blues, I say some retail therapy is in order.

First, I love this oriental style parasol by Belle Epoque. It is the current Teleport Hub group gift at the Belle Epoque main location. This FREE gift has a single hold pose, and comes with a texture change hud that lets you choose from several equally beautiful patterns. To get your copy of this fun gift, just join the Teleport Hub group, there’s a one time fee of 10 lindens, then click the gift vendor at Belle Epoch.

Next up, I think this hairstyle by Tram is uber cute. It’s an older gift, originally available at a past hair fair, but it was new to me! lol There are several group gifts available at Tram, and the group is FREE to join. This particular gift is called F623 (though the package says F719?) and it comes in this lovely pale blue grey color only. To get your copy, head over to Tram and wear your group tag, then just click the gift vendor on the table at the back of the store.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

The Real Teal

Tickle Me Teal
Hello There Fab Free! I hope everyone has had a fantastic weekend. Mine has been busy, but in a positive way. I also had a lot of fun putting this unique look together. It’s always fun to style something outside the usual, and as I am sure I’ve said a thousand times and don’t mind saying again, I love mixing elements of fantasy style with modern fashion. That said, one of the shops in Second Life that you can truly count on for unique beautiful skins is Stix.

Tickled Teal 

Stix has put out a huge group gift skin pack out as their March/April group gift. The gift includes the above pictured version of their Vera skin in 4 fantasy skin-tones. Each tone has appliers for mesh bodies, ears, heads all sorts of things included , which is one more reason this FREE group gift is so fabulous. There’s also a classic system version of each skin in the package. The Stix group is FREE to join, just wear your tag and click the gift vendor to claim your gift.

Perfectly Polished

Another shop known for stellar fantasy style is Plastik. Just this weekend Plastik placed out a gorgeous nail applier set for just 5 linden. I believe this is a group only purchase, but I may be wrong. Either way, the Plastik group is FREE to join, so the cost of the applier set remains the same. The set includes 10 polish options, each in this bright beautiful shade of blue, some are glittery, some are metallic. You really have to see them to appreciate how pretty the polish is. Included in this 5 linden purchase are appliers for Slink, Maitreya, and Omega compatible nails.

Teal Me No Lies
Teal Me No Lies

Finally, for this post anyhow, I also picked up the latest FREE group gift at Enertia. This cozy sweater dress is actually quite sexy on. It’s a halter style dress with low sides and an even lower back. If you’re at all modest, this may not be the dress for you as it shows a little side-boob and a generous amount of bum cleavage. I think it’s quite fun and playful. This is Second Life after all, so why not be a little more daring now and then. The dress comes in several body specific mesh sizes, including all 3 Belleza bodies, both Slink bodies, Maitreya, and another called Werewolf that I’m honestly not familiar with. Also there is a color change hud that allows you to pick from 12 different colors. Still not convinced you want to wear something so revealing? I think the dress would be just as cute with applier jeans and an applier crop top underneath. The Enertia group is FREE to join.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Contemplation

ContemplationWell Hello Fab Free! It’s been a little while since I’ve been able to be online, but I am very happy to be back and I sincerely hope everyone enjoyed any and all winter festivities they celebrated. That said, it’s time you ventured through We Love Role Play if you haven’t already.  The current round of We ❤ RP is particularly special because there is a Christmas tree with FREE gifts piled under it. You will need to join the We ❤ RP group and wear the tag to get the gifts, however the group is FREE to join.

As far as I am concerned you’re never too old to play dress up, or to have a wild imagination. There were a few of the FREE We ❤ RP gifts specifically that called out to me. I just had to wear the armor from Belle Epoque, and the headpiece from Wicca’s Wardrobe. Perhaps the fact that I’ve recently started watching “The 100” again on Netflix had some influence as well. As for the elf ears, I just like how they look, I feel like a determined warrior elf: beautiful and strong.

Wicca’s Wardrobe Gift at We ❤ RP

This sturdy yet elegant looking headpiece is the FREE gift from Wicca’s Wardrobe at We ❤ RP. The textures of the Amara Headpiece are beautiful, and the face chains fit easily over my mesh head without any adjusting. You can size this mesh accessory with the built in resize scripts. Look for this FREE gift under the Christmas Tree at We ❤ RP.

Belle Epoque Gift at We ❤ RP 

The armor Pru is wearing as her warrior elf self is the FREE gift from Belle Epoque at We ❤ RP. This armor is beautifully done and moves well with the Maitreya Lara body. The Callie Armor is fully mesh and meant to be born with the Maitreya Lara body. Also, it comes in a gold version as well as the silver version shown.

Bitter Berries

Bitter BerriesWell Hello There Fab Free’rs! I had so much fun “elfing things up” (as Carson put it) in my last post that I thought I’d give it a second go. I really do love these LODE gachas, and the Orquidea cart at The Wash’s Cart Sale gave me the perfect excuse to wear more of the gacha goodness from LODE. Needless to say I’m excited to share these inexpensive finds with you. Also, if by chance I am not back here before the holidays, I hope each of you has a wonderful winter holiday, no matter what you celebrate! ❤

LODE Bitter Berries 

So once again, I spent more money than I should have playing the gacha machines at LODE. Thankfully they are just 60 lindens per play. The gorgeous headpiece Pru is wearing and the pretty matching ring are both from the Bitter Berries gacha machine at the LODE flagship store. Along with these beautiful accessories, you’ll find additional equally gorgeous pieces to be won. One thing I can honestly say is that I’m never disappointed in the quality and detail in the items I’ve bought at LODE, these are more than worth the 60 lindens.

Bitter Berries 1Orquidea at The Cart Sale 

As I am certain you’ve noticed, the winter round of The Cart Sale at The Wash has begun and there are some Fabulous finds to be had. I took a stroll through yesterday and picked up several things personally. This beautiful burgundy colored dress is one of several 10 linden items at the Orquidea cart. There is a green version available as well, and I don’t mind telling you I had a hard time deciding which color to share with you. The dress comes in standard mesh sizes and also includes a matching beret (not shown).  Along with this pretty wool dress, there are several jewelry and accessory type items at the Orquidea cart.

Here are the details, Enjoy!
