Toucan? You Can!

Toucan? You Can!

I love visiting exotic locales… and this dress by LaVian & Co. [SamJones] with its toucan on the hem inspired me to seek out something a little more unusual. What I ended up discovering was a tiki treehouse tea house… forest and waterfall included. It’s a pretty fantastic set up and area. You may want to check it out some day if you have some wandering hours free in Second Life.

My dress is a really amazing 10L find on the LaVian & Co. Cart at the Cart Wash Sale. You’ll get all the standard Sizes as well as fitmesh sizes, and fits for the Maitreya, Belleza, Hourglass, and Slink bodies. It includes a color change hud for 27 different colors… that is a LOT of dress for your 10 little Linden!

My hair is a FREE SLB13 gift at Hairology. You’ve stopped by there and gotten the free cake, right?🙂 This hair is “Mabel” by EMOtions. I love the sort of Flapper style to this look and think it is really cute. The gift box includes a fatpack of 20 colors, so you’re bound to find one you like!

Fairy Tale

Happy Weekend, FabFree-ers!

Fairy Tale

If you are in the mood for some roleplaying this weekend here in Second Life, I may have found your new go-to costume. This is “Queen of Hearts” from MoonliteCat Creations and it’s the 1L prize for the Nightmares and Fairy Tales Hunt.  The top, with the attached arm bracers and collar, and the skirt are separate pieces and both come in the standard Mesh sizes – XS-XL. There are three alpha layers included: one for the top, one for the skirt and one for both pieces. I just love it when designers make a multi – piece outfit so darn versatile!

The Nightmares and Fairy Tales Hunt runs until May 31st but that is coming up quick so don’t delay!

Raspberry Sorbet I Think I Love You

Raspberry Sorbet

It’s Friday Fab Free’rs and I couldn’t be happier! Though the week went by quickly, for me anyway, it was still quite a week. Thankfully I have my excursions in Second Life to relax and enjoy some “me” time. While on said excursions in the world of SL, I came across the Sanarae event, and the many Lucky Boards there. As mentioned in my previous post, the free-to-join Sanarae group is required for the Lucky Boards. This adorably flirty dress from a shop called Sorbet is one of the many lucky board gifts at Sanarae.

I love love love the rock-a-billy pinup look to this dress! I really can’t say anything negative about this fully mesh dress. The colors are great, and I really like the flare of the skirt. This dress by Sorbet is honestly my personal favorite of the FREE Lucky Board prizes at Sanarae.

To emphasize the rock-a-billy part of this pinup look, I picked up the April group gift from EMO-tions. This retro pony with bandanna and rolled bangs is just too perfect. The EMO-tions group is FREE to join, making this fun hairstyle FREE as well. It comes in the blonde tones, and 4 color options for the bandanna. Also you can pick up a set of bangs, and some hair-base appliers for FREE at EMO-tions. Don’t forget to wear your group tag!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Hair – .:EMO-tions.. *PEGGY* – FREE Group Gift/Group is FREE to Join

New Age Lovely

New Age Lovely 1

We are well into the New Year, and I’m already feeling like a new woman! And this gift dress — called New Age — by Sweet Temptations, was just the thing to fit my feels! This dress is FREE with your group tag (the group is FREE to join) and comes in fitmesh sizes as well as Maitreya and Slink fits! It’s too temptingly sweet to pass up!

New Age Lovely 2

My lovely pumps from Pure Poison are their latest group gacha gift… aptly named Lovely Pumps … of course! The Pure Poison group is FREE to join and if you hop over to the main-store you get one FREE spin on the group gift gacha for a chance at one color of these fantastic pumps which will fit Belleza, Maitreya, Slink, or TMP feet.

A Highlands Lady

Hey there, FabFree folks!

RennHunt_001

Even as the new year is starting up, some things are winding down. I almost missed the nifty little Holiday Hunt over on Renaissance Island. The good folks at Renaissance Island have hidden 22 gifts all over the town each one priced at 0L. My favorite has to be this gorgeous tartan gown, Bayberry from G. Sloane. It has a nice holiday feel if you need something for next year’s December role plays but it isn’t overly Christmas-y. I added a picture so you can see the gown without the stole.

RennHunt_002

I added the lovely ‘Silver Fox Stole’ from Tayren’s Fantasy Fashions to make my new gown a little more snow – friendly. This elegant stole comes with a longer scarf version for your gentleman too.

Don’t be intimidated by the idea of a ‘Sim wide’ Hunt, this hunt is fun and easy and the organizers provided a great list of hints you can grab from the Hunt poster at the landing point.  What you can’t do is wait around. This Hunt ends on January 6th so hurry over!

Eternal Winter

Winter

It’s been quite a while since I’ve done a full hunt, but when I saw some of the previews for The Eternal Hunt, I just had to try! The Eternal Hunt is a stamp hunt, meaning you have to wear a hud and follow the teleports to each location and find the hunt object. For this hunt, you’ll be looking for a glowing blue infinity sign. The hud also gives a hint at each location, which is very helpful. Once you’ve visited each location, found the source of infinity, you’ll be teleported to a gift room with about 20 or so FREE gifts from the participating stores. If it’s been a while since you explored Second Life, a hunt like this is a great way to discover new stores, and to check out what’s happening at stores you know. You must do the hunt in order, and you must find the hidden infinity at each location to gain access to the prize room. This hunt ends November 21, so don’t wait, bring a friend and have some fun!

I have to admit, the gift I was most interested in is this stunning fantasy skin from Fallen Gods. I was immediately in love with the ethereal look of this skin. Fallen Gods also happens to be the start location for The Eternal Hunt, you can pick up the hunt HUD there and start your journey to find the source of infinity at each location. Once you’ve reached the end prize room, this skin called “Sidera Starborn” from Fallen Gods is one of the several FREE gifts. This incredibly generous gift includes a full skin set for both men and women. The set includes the system skin in a full version and a PG version, and appliers for just about everything. There is an applier for Slink body, Slink Hands & Feet, as well as a Slink Nail applier so you can perfectly match your nails to this beautiful skin. Also included are appliers for TMP head and body, Omega compatible bodies and heads, Loud Mouth, the Soul Uni Ear, and the Soul Mer Ear.

Another of my favorites from the hunt is the FREE gift from EMO-tions. This gorgeous hair includes a color/size change hud, and these incredibly detailed horns. The horns have a few color change options within the hair hud as well. You can also wear the hairstyle without the horns all together. I really like that this style is pulled up and away from the face, and is long and full down the back. The style is called Love War, which I think suits it well. The color change hud includes shades of black and white, including some silver/grey tones in the middle and a few “faded” options as well. I thought the silver fade option went really well with the skin from Fallen Gods, but honestly all of the colors are pretty.

Next, I think these earrings from OXI are so versatile. They are also a FREE Eternal Hunt prize. They include a texture change hud with a few color options for the gems, and the metal parts of the earrings. I could see these being worn as part of a fantasy look like this one, or something modern and urban. Not to mention that these great geometric shapes are so in right now. I love them.

I picked one last gift to show  from the slew of FREE Eternal Hunt gifts, and it’s this beautifully unique art statue from Balderdash. This “Moonbranch” sculpture has an otherworldly magenta glow that seems to make the hanging crystals shimmer and shine. It makes me think of witchcraft and alchemy. I thought it would be really beautiful standing in a garden, or as part of a fantasy setting of some kind.

Winter 1

I hope you enjoy these fun hunt finds as much as I have, there are many more FREE gifts to be had, this was just a small sample. For more information about The Enternal Hunt, you can head to the start location at Fallen Gods and pick up information along with your stamp HUD.

That about wraps it up for this post, but before I go, let me tell you about two more great stops that guys should make in their ongoing search for men’s hair. One fine resource for men’s hairstyles is Alli & Ali. They have free group gifts and frequently take part in gridwide hunts. If you are looking for free hair, they are definitely worth a visit. Lastly, while they are not offering any free male hair, Truth is an excellent hair store and, as of this writing, their male hair is only 50L. For that price, they are a bargain. That’s all for me, have fun and I will see you on the grid!—–WHC Riler

Post Apocalyptic Day Trip

ApocalypseA gal needs fashion for any occasion even the end of the world! So let gear up and see whats left in this world!

 LUAS has a new FREE GG called May outlaw and is just the thing for a day of Apocalypse living. The group is free to join and I will be showing you some more goodies from  LUAS in the next pictures. May Outlaw is mesh and you can edit the the belt which i had to do to fit my hips. It includes all the pieces even the eye patch and they can be used as separates. You have to have the right hair style and EMO-tions hair came thru with their new FREE group gift, Jade – brown unrigged mesh(dreadlocks). Group is FREE to join and there is a men’s hair gift too. If you are eyeing my tattoo we will be getting to that in just a minute winks. Apocalypse1

Even in the middle of an Apocalypse one needs to take time to appreciate the finer things like music. Once again my outfit is FREE and comes from LUAS, this time the letter letters boards which are free with your group tag. Kaliope brown is mesh and includes the arm warmers. Now to the tattoo you have been eyeing. It comes from Lushish Catz and is their new FREE SL frees & offers (SL F&O) group gift,  la Flor Tattoo which includes a system layer tat plus appliers for slink, TMP and Omega. The group joiner is right there under the gift in case you aren’t already in the group.

Apocalypse2One more FREE Apocalyptic fashion today from LUAS, Ilargi leoppard mesh is also a letter lucky prize and even comes with the hair feathers which work very well with the EMO-tions Jade – brown hair gift mentioned above. However it doesn’t have a top just the chest jewelry so I grabbed [MBC]Manon bikini (tango appliers included) off marketplace for FREE and edited the chest jewelry into my body a bit so you just see the feathers in my cleavage. I thot this turns the outfit nicely into a PG version.

I do want to mention the *Everwinter* Post Apocalyptic Theme Park Sim I took all my pictures at today as I could have spent ALL day here wandering and taking pics! I did set my windlight setting to Nacon’s Sweet Dawn to get this added eary end of days effect but it looks fab with the sims windlight settings too.

Days of magic

Hello Fabulous Folks! I’m getting my fantasy fix today at the Fantasy Gacha Carnival and I love it.

Days of magic

In RL, I happen to love Cosplay and have a few costumes that… yes… I wear. But there’s so few places to wear them. I mean… they’d toss me out of the Home Depot if I came in dressed as a Druid or something. So that leaves Second Life and trust me… I take advantage of it. I’ve been wearing the “Lisissandra” dress and jewelry from UNA non stop since I won them at the Carnival. I’m showing the Lisissandra top in the black and silver with the silver arm bands, the blue and white skirt with the silver belt, the black leather collar and bracers, and the silver headdress.

Days of magic

It’s such a gorgeous complete look I had to play till I won them all! The skirt is fit mesh but it doesn’t come with an alpha layer that I could find. But any slim skirt alpha will work nicely. The belt, collar, and bracers all come with a HUD to change the metal colors and the Headdress has a HUD to change the colored stones.  All this for only 50L per play!

The Fantasy Gacha Carnival runs until September 12!  Here’s your taxi to the event -> Let’s GO!

** Oh… and that guy…? He was dead when I got there….
