Bigfoot by Day and Night!

Bigfoot shirt

I’m a big fan of fun graphic t-shirts. I’m also one of those Bigfoot skeptics. I mean how is Bigfoot really real? Everyone is always looking for Bigfoot… but how often do they ask the *real* question? Hmm? Hmm?

So when I went to JellyRoll, a fun and quirky little shop I might add, I fell in love with their current group gift!

Bigfoot by day!

Join the JellyRoll group for free and pick up your “Bigfoot” Tee for free! It’s a great conversation starter and goes nicely with a pair of jeans, capris, or shorts! It comes in lots of sizes too!

A Little Pink

A Little Pink

Yawn… It’s Friday, but maybe I’ll just stay in bed all day, especially since I found this sexy little pink number that I don’t want to take off. I’m all comfy, and sleeping in seems like a good idea. Breakfast in bed… an extra cup of coffee… maybe an a late brunch…

You can sleep in too!

If you decide you like this delectable lingerie with its lacy peekaboo material (and built in panties… it’s all one piece for convenience… just take a teleport to Selene Creations where you can pick it up free. You’ll need to go upstairs to the gift area, and if you are not already a member of the Maitreya Gifts, Sales & News Gifts Group, join the group (no fee, it’s free to join) and then you can get this gift free. Right next to it, you can pick up the same romper in lavender as an SL frees & offers gift as well!

Sizes available:

  • Standard Mesh XXS – L
  • TMP
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Well I’m back to bed… I’m still thinking about that extra cup of coffee. Today it’s rainy where I’m at, so bed seems like the perfect cure. Happy daydreaming!

Finally… FaMESHed

faMESHed1Good morning Fabulouses!  I have been trying since May 1st to get into FaMESHed for their big anniversary round to take advantage of the huge load of group gifts available, and after a week of trying…

I MADE IT IN!  I MADE IT IN!  I FINALLY GOT INTO FAMESHED!

At this round of FaMESHEd, almost every vendor as a free group gift set to the FaMESHed inworld group (which is free to join).  You will find them in blue boxes on the floor in front of the vendor displays.  It is still very hard to teleport into the event, but don’t give up – persistence pays off, and don’t worry if you can’t get in right away because this is a month long event.  I’m sure it will be easier to get into near the end of the event, and the gifts will all still be there!

Three For Now…

Today I am showing off three of the FaMESHed group gifts, but I will indeed be back here on FabFree to show you more of them!!

  • United Color –  The Sima Dress in a summery Sherbet shade is the free group gift offered by United Colour.  It comes with a HUD system that allows you to change the skirt between three textures, as well as take it off and have the option to just wear the top on it’s own. (Made for Slink, Belleza & Maitreya mesh bodies)
  • COCO –  Maitreya and Slink body/feet wearers will be happy to learn that COCO has put out these adorable Mule Slides as a free FaMESHed group gift in Ivory!
  • EMPYREAN FORGE – In my second photo below you’ll be able to see the gorgeous Papillon Ring that is being given out at the Empyrean Forge display.  It includes a texture change HUD that allows 8 colour changes for the flower and a silver/gold option.

FaMESHed1a
My Laggy Event Advice…

Make sure before you teleport into the event that you have:

  • Stripped down to a low lag outfit or an alpha layer.
  • Removed your AO and other HUDs.
  • Turned off all of your gestures. / tummy talkers, tails etc.
  • Turn your settings down as low as they will go.
  • Join the group before you get there from search, so you are not looking for a group joiner that may or may not actually rez for you.

Once you arrive:

  • Derender other avatars.
  • Allow yourself to fully rez before you move around.
  • Don’t panic if you crash, simply log back into your last location and it should just put you back where you were.

If you have more laggy event advice, leave it in comments!  We can all learn from each other  🙂

Winding Down

Little Black Dress_001

I like to wind down in the afternoons with tea. I like fancy teas… like Jade Citrus Mint, or Hibiscus Rose, or even and Earl Grey now and then. I took some time to wind down this afternoon after hunting down some deals to share with you.

April is winding down…

… and with it we will be seeing the last week or so of the Women’s Stuff Hunt. Now is the time to get all those treats from the amazing creators who have set out gifts for us. I stopped by GAALL and picked up this mini dress for just 1L. It has a unique draped front and comes with a color change hud (though I opted to show you the black). You get 8 colors in total in the texture change hud.

Sizes included:

  • eBody
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Tonic – Curvy & Fine
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Loving Friday!

Today is Friday, and besides being the start of the weekend, I’m also loving that it’s Fifty Linden Friday. I picked up a pair of heels at Pure Poison that you won’t want to miss out on. These Ralu Sandals have a glittery finish and come with a color change hud for 7 texture choices for the main part of the shoe, plus additional texture options for the heel, straps, and toe. All this for just 50L! But hurry, it’s today only!

Corset-ed Fairy

Corset-ed Fairy

I decided to put my roleplay hat on… or rather my wings on! Because I found an amazing little FREE in-store mini hunt at Tiar that is not to be missed. Right now if you bunny hop to Tiar, the creator is hosting an in-store mini Easter Egg hunt where you can get free goodies. There are eggs full of prizes all over the store. You have to be within 10 meters of the eggs to get the goods, so no cam-touching, but its well worth the hop around the store.

I picked up this FREE Princess Corset in all the standard sizes as one of the hunt gifts, as well as these FREE wings in black in one of the eggs. There were many many more wonderful gifts… so jump over to Tiar and fill your basket!

A Cascade of Magic

Sometimes a little fantasy pick-me-up is just the thing to make your day… and today I felt like making a little magic! I picked up a few things around the grid sure to make any role player’s day a bit more magical, and I’m here to let you in on the magician’s secrets!

Right now if you stop by [EvelineInTheBox], the creator’s February gift is out. It is this lovely Thyri Cascade dress in mesh (all the standard sizes) that is really just fantastic. I love the way the dress curves around my avatar’s body! It is FREE to group member and the group is FREE to join, making this lovely gift a sweet deal!

A Cascade of Magic

Remember that Alice Project is still hosting their Winter Project! Today I stopped by to pick up this hair called Amy in the Winter Shimmer version… which is the VIP members’ gift. This is FREE to VIPs. The group is 750L to join but there are always TONS of amazing offers. There is also a FREE pack out for nonmembers, so it’s still very worth your time to stop by and pick up the giftie even if you are not a VIP member.

My roleplay character Astrid is a fey who does light and magic using staffs… so when I saw this crystal staff at A.D.D.Andel! I fell in love! It is only 50L per spin at the in-store gacha and there are lots of beautiful staffs in the machine. These are even modifiable, so I was able to make mine have a bit of a glow to better fit how I envisioned my character. Love, love, love this!

Frosty Santa Baby

Frosty Santa Baby 1

Chances are, you will be invited to at least one grand soiree this holiday season, and when that happens you will want to be prepared with a dress fit for such an occasion! With its dramatic side-split, satin textures, and fur trimed cuff-lets and hat — this gown from Tiffany Designs called Dirty Santa is certainly fit for a Queen (or a spectacular winter party!).

This is an applier dress (with appliers for TMP, Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, and Omega) with a great flexy skirt attachment for fabulous flow and look and is FREE with your group tag (the group is 50L to join). You will need to pay the vendor 1L to get the dress, but your 1L will be immediately refunded to you. And the small group fee is really worth it. There are several past group gifts still up in the gift area that are simply stunning!

Frosty Santa Baby 2

I wanted something whimsical to finish off my look (after all that furry hat and cuffs were just begging for some whimsy), and I found it in the form of these adorable Lil’Frosty Earrings by Empyrean Forge. We ❤ Roleplay opened their latest round on the 4th… and for the holiday season they are hosting a hunt with gifties!

Many of the creators participated and hid gift boxes around the quadrants near their booths. For tiny fees you can pick up fabulous gifts. These earrings were Empyrean Forge‘s hunt gift offering and after a bit of searching and for just 5L, I got to take them home with me!

Lend Me Your Hairs!

“Friends, Ladies, Second Lifers, lend me your hairs; I come to wear hair, not to praise it…”

Wait. That’s not how that quote goes. Either way — Sometimes we all need a new do and I have just the dos for no dough for you!

Lend Me Your Hairs! [1]

You really can never go wrong by taking a jaunt over to Analog dog to check out the latest offerings in the FREE Ball at the back of the sim. Currently Style 1 and 2 in the pictures above are offers. Style 1 (Bangers) and 2 (Lolly) are real lookers. Though one says blondes and one says light reds, I discovered that the hud included a tinting option that let me tint the hair literally any color I wanted and I managed to get both hairs to the rich chocolate shade you see in the picture. Style 3 is the current FREE group Gift at Dura called Valentine with your FREE group join and is also a fatpack of colors as well!

Lend Me Your Hairs! [2]

Mina Hair is always classic for any occasion. I love the realistic textures and the unique designs. These two gifts — styles 4 (Ilse) and 5 (Tristan, which is also unisex and comes in 4 styles in the box) above are current in-store group gifts FREE with your 200L group join fee. They both are full fat packs. Don’t let the fee deter you. Mina offers regular group gifts, special offers, and discounts to VIPS to make up for the fee.

Lend Me Your Hairs! [3]

Need something elegant? Just not in the casual mood? [Entwined] is your one stop shop! Above in the picture you can see that styles 6, 7, and 8 are fantastic for any classic elegant look (though style 6 — called Anna — is on the fence — it would be great for casual wear too). Style 7 is called Holly, and style 8 is called Elinna and these great hair gifts are yours FREE at [Entwined] when you join the group for FREE and pick them up in world at the store and they all come in full color pack huds!

Lend Me Your Hairs! [4]

We’ll finish up with do 9 and 10. You’re going to pick up number 10 — called Ivy — while at [Entwined]. It’s another elegant style there FREE with your FREE group join. Style number 9 is called Astarte and is FREE with a hop pop and stop over to +Spellbound+ with a 100L group join fee — but the fee is worth it for this style alone as it is a full gift color pack and then add in later gifts and other benefits… how can you complain?

Well that’s it for me. I’m out of hair for now. I mean, I’m out of here for now. You get the picture! 😉
