Hunting at Ostara


Ostara 2

Hello Fabulous Fab Free’rs! Thank you as always for being here. The Ostara’s Altar event just recently started, and part of the event includes a 5 linden hunt. Each of the shops has an Ostara Hunt egg hidden somewhere on the event grounds. The term hidden should be used loosely though, considering many of the shops have placed their egg within plain sight. A few shops also have multiple hunt prizes. Each of these hunt gifts will cost you a mere 5 linden. For this post I picked out three of the many prizes to share with you. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

Floral Headband – There’s something inherently springtime about flowers in your hair. Since Ostara is in spring, this floral headband by Oubliette makes the perfect accessory. It’s their 5L hunt item at the Ostara’s Altar event. There are no scripts, so it’s also low-lag, and it’s mod so it can be manually sized.

Nose Stud – The little spiked nose-stud Pru is wearing is another 5L Ostara’s Altar hunt prize. This one is by Neverwish, and it comes with a silver version, and the “galaxy” version that is shown. This piercing also appears to be free of scripts and can be manually sized.

Earrings – I love the delicate look of these gold earrings by PKC which stands for Purrrrfect Kitties Creations. They too are another of the many 5 linden Ostara’s Altar hunt prizes. These earrings do have resize scripts that allow you to custom fit them. The script even includes a poser to help your avatar stand still without the need of a pose stand.

Here are the details:

Headband – Oubliette– Flora Headband – 5L Hunt Prize @Ostara’s Altar
Hair – TRUTH VIP Joy – Past VIP Group Gift *Originally Blogged Here 
Head – CATWA HEAD Koura Bento
Skin – Essences – Vanya

A tale of Ice Cream and Kittens

FF4 v3 final

Today we find a rather glum Zsa.  I told her that if she still wanted to buy stuff on top of all the freebies and cheapies all us FabFree girls hunt down, she had to get a job.  I found her one in the local ice cream parlour, The Sugar Bowl, but she is not impressed, and spent her days day dreaming about Elvis, and trying to avoid damaging her new manicure.

At least she dressed well for her first day at her new job, and her outfit includes 2 group gifts and a dress that cost very little.

The dress…..

….. is from Bowtique and available on the marketplace for just 50L includes a 25 option texture change hud.

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya (with autohide)
  • Fitmesh
  • 5 fitmesh standard avatar sizes (alphas included)

The Sparkly Stuff….

…..consists of group gifts from Cae. The group is free to join, and there are other gifts to pick up including the companion necklace for this bracelet and earrings.

And finally….

…….Kitty nails!  Zsa, like the person behind the monitor, is animal obsessed (you should see her Jian folder), with a particular love of cats, bats, elephants and goats – but cats always come first.  One of many free group gifts available from Alme is a kitten manicure! The group costs 50L to join but there are frequent gifts and a wall of previous gifts to pick up.  The Alme system uses an easy hud allowing you to apply to all these systems with a click.  To pick your gifts up just put your Alme tag on, and pay the vendor 1L, which will immediately be refunded).

    • Alme
    • Belleza
    • Slink
    • Maitreya
    • Omega
    • Vista
    • Tuty’s

As you can’t see the nails very well, here is a vendor pic:

Alme Love Kittens Nails, lilac

Must dash, I need to search for another job for Zsa, I don’t think this one will last very long.  She switched the fridge off by mistake and all the ice cream melted.  Whoops.

What is Zsa wearing? 

Mesh Body – Maitreya Lara
Mesh Head – Lelutka Chloe
Applier – Pink Fuel Anja 
Eyes – Avi-Glam Solstice Eyes
Hair – Truth Thelma
Nails – Alme Love Kittens (group gift / pay 1L, immediately refunded / 50L to join) 
Dress – Bowtique Valerie
Bracelet & Earrings – Cae Northstar stud earrings and bracelet (free group gift / 0L / free to join)
Backdrop – Exposeur The Sugar Bowl
Pose – Ex-Posed Cassie

Free “Bye Summer” group hunt at Safira

FF3
Hello again FabFree’ers, I hope you have all had a wonderful weekend wherever in the world you are right now.

I have some exciting news to share today – until Wednesday the 19th, there is a “Bye Summer” hunt at the new Safira mainstore.  You do need to be a group member, but the  group is currently free to join.  You just need to head to the Safira store, which is based on the revamped Scandalize sim, and find 10 watermelons (shown below left corner of the poster below) – thankfully these aren’t tiny, so they are pretty easy to spot – even for me!  Just remember to put your Safira tag on, buy each watermelon for 0L and run home to unpack all your boxes, in which you will find these goodies:

Bye Summer hunt!!

Most of the items appear to have a couple of options included.  I am showing you the floral option of dress #4, but it also comes in the floral/white combo shown on the poster above.  Zsa is a modest little soul so was particularly pleased that this dress, which is very short, comes with an integral “C string”, which comes with a texture change hud and the option to hide it if you wish.

This cute little dress comes in the following sizes:

Maitreya Lara
Belleza Freya & Isis
Slink Hourglass

Have fun, happy hunting!

As both Safira and Scandalize are currently holding group hunts on to celebrate the revamped sim, the sim has been very busy this weekend.  For this reason, the Safira hunt has been extended to the 19th.  If you find the sim full, just keep trying, you will get in eventually.  Prior to tp’ing in, I recommend you use the “show friends only” option if you are using Firestorm, and camming rather than trying to walk when you land – unless you are particularly skilled at walking in treacle while being catapulted around on a rubber band.  Sadly, Zsa missed that class at School of SL, so she cams everywhere – well, secretly, she cams everywhere because she is just plain lazy, but don’t tell her I told you that, it’s our secret, shhhh.

What is Zsa wearing? 

Mesh Body – Maitreya Lara
Mesh Head – Lelutka Chloe
Applier – Pink Fuel Anja
Eyes – Avi-Glam 
Hair – Stealthic – Haven
Nails – Alme Spring Flowers – Vintage (free group gift / 0L / 50L to join)
Shoes – Essenz Mallorca
Dress – Safira – Gwen Floral (Maitreya) (free group hunt gift / 0L / free to join) (hunt extended to Wednesday Sept 19th)
Jewelry – Izzie’s Cowrie Shell necklace, bracelet and earrings
Backdrop – Exposeur – Room of Balloons

Dragon Lord

Greetings FabulouslyFree Friends,

Dragon Lord

Julianna had to twist my arm to get me to try some of these ‘role play’ outfits at first. And, frankly, some of what’s out there on the Grid is… well… less than elegant. However this one from Sparrow By Design is rather suave. This is “DragonLord” and it’s the free prize for the Silk Road Hunt. The coat and the pants are separate items but they share the same alpha layer. Each piece comes as one FitMesh item. I found the FitMesh to be extremely well made and fit very well indeed.

My … unorthodox head gear is from Aii: The Ugly and Beautiful. I protested but Julianna insisted that a dragon Lord needed horns.  At least these are very very impressive. The “Holy Devil” horns come in both gold and silver and are unrigged Mesh for ease of adjustment. You can find them as a free gift for the subscribers group near the front of the store.

Lastly, my prop and pose are from the retirement sale going on now until the end of the month at Exposeur. Sadly, the shop will be closing for good though the Marketplace should remain available. All items are on sale for some very deep discounts.

The Silk Road Hunt and the Exposeur closing sale both end on June 30th so don’t delay.

I remain most sincerely yours,

Gabe's Signiture

Beautiful Free

Love BDR

Hello Hello Fab Free’rs! Welcome back. I’m not going to kid you, there are days when I seriously want to wear my hair like this, just in my face. Sometimes I think I might pull it off too. This sassy hairstyle by Love Hair is a FREE Lucky Board prize at the Sanarae event. You’ll need to join the Sanarae group to participate in the Lucky Boards, but don’t fret, the group is FREE to join. This LB prize includes the hairstyle shown in the ombre color shown as well as a blonde to bright red ombre color, not shown.

This cool casual one-piece is a FREE “tester” outfit available at Beautiful Dirty Rich. It is a wearable demo that allows you to test out the colors of the clothing at Beautiful Dirty Rich. They’ve begun a new “mix and match” system allowing customers to mix and match the colors of some of the newer outfits. This tester outfit gives everyone the ability to really see how the wide range of colors look once worn. I think this idea is really fantastic, and the outfit is really cute too! This FREE wearable demo comes with a fat pack of appliers in every color available. It also includes classic system layers in every color. The colors shown are white, grey, black, jet black, and red. There are so many ways I think this one-piece is truly wearable. I like it as-is, but it could easily be worn with a skirt or under some cute running shorts for an athletic look. There’s no need to join a group, just buy the Mix & Match Tester outfit located in the New Releases section of the Beautiful Dirty Rich store.

Lastly, the five static poses are not only a great way for me to show you some of the colors available with the tester outfit at BDR, they are great poses; especially when you consider they are just one linden. This pose pack from Exposeur is listed as their February 2016 group gift on the Marketplace and can be purchased for just one linden. The set includes all 5 static poses shown, and a mirrored version of each pose for a total of 10 poses.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

10L Jacket Sneak Attack

Snapshot_009Hey there Fabulouses! Pru and I came across a couple of 10L jackets by Ricielli on the marketplace that we both think you MUST have!

We headed out to take some photos for you so that you could get a good look at them, at least that’s what I thought we were headed there to do!  Low and behold, Pru had other plans and got me good with a snowball sneak attack.

I am so going to get her back for this the next chance I get and it will need to be done when she least expects it, but for now… a truce.
Snapshot_006Now about those jackets… Pru’s Ricielli jacket is called Bryn and is available in a two pack of pink and blue which you can find [HERE].  The jacket I am wearing is called Bo and is available in a pack of seven colours [HERE].  Again – both for just 10L!
