MakeOver Monday part 4

Hello hello, Fab Free! It’s that time again… MakeOver Monday! And we’ve come so far! Two full avatars for exactly ZERO lindens. And I really had to grit my teeth a few times. I’m so weak when it comes to having that “perfect’ (To me anyway) look. I really fret over poor Alistar’s hair. And I’m still looking for something better for him. I swear, if I ever become a designer or builder… I will have good free stuff for the guys. But anyway…

Let’s jump in here. SO, we have bento bodies, Mesh heads, Animation Overrides, and hair. All we need now is clothes. I don’t want to dwell on the clothing part since that’s basically what we do here at the Blog everyday. But I do want to mention a few places, I’ve found very helpful.

First is R&R Swag and their “Rookie Alley” . This is a very nice selection of things for both male and female avatars under 30 days. This outfit is a bit of a mix and match from the Rookie Alley and the past group gifts.

Alistar’s second outfit is a second set of jeans from R&R Swag’s Rookie Alley and a group gift from Asteroidbox for the L’Homme group.  L’Homme is one of the hands down best groups to join if you are looking for male clothes and accessories. The group is free to join, the designers are top notch and you have three -ish months to pick the gifts up. I highly recommend it. 

Last is a current gift for one of our own FabFree Group designers – MaxMagic. They are offering this great Trekkie hoodie for both men and women. I do love geeky stuff!

Kerydwyn’s clothes are much easier to find, go figure. But I still want to show a few choices for our newbs. The first is from BoHo Soul one of our FabFree Group designers. This is the “Impish” outfit which comes with top, pants and shoes. Which is awesome because free good shoes are hard to find. 

The second outfit is from the Cozy Fest event. This event is a bonanza for free gifts from real quality designers. Plus, for new folks… it’s just about everything you can ask for. The group is free to join and each booth has a free gift! Kerydwyn is showing the ‘Maggs’ top from Apple Blossom and the ‘Natasha’ leggings from 1313 Mockingbird lane. These events are great places to “shop” for designers landmarks as well. If you like the gift or what you see in the booth… check out their main store. They may have a free group or other gifts there. Also,

The boots in the second picture are another totally free gift from Body Cult the Marketplace. Digging through the MP can be frustrating… but worth it.

 

Okay that’s it for today cause it’s late and I’m tired and cranky today. ;P  But I think we have covered some ground. Our new kids are looking like real stars on the Grid now.  Take a look at a side by side!

Wow! And remember we spent exactly… ZERO monies! 

SO… next week I will talk about housing and inventory. Or “Now I got clothes… where do I unpack ’em without putting on a free show?”

Lovely Leah

Heyya Fab Fam!  I am so excited to be in the weekend… I changed shape! LOL No… not really. I’m just reporting on a new FREE Mesh head for us. I know some of y’all are happy Mesh Head collectors and I’m happy to getcha your fix! 😉


This is the Leah Head and shape from Kalhene. You can get it for free when you join the free Kalhene group. I’m wearing just the supplies from the free head gift. The gift comes with two shapes, one slightly more curvy than the other. The shapes are meant for the Erika Mesh Body (Also from Kalhene) but I am wearing it on my Maitreya Lara. So there are some neck issues that I assume would not be issues on the correct body.

In addition to the shapes, Leah comes with four complete body and head BOM skins. I’m wearing the ‘Sunkissed’ skin. The details are very nice and smooth. The body details are nice and well designed. I tried on each skin included and liked all of them. In my opinion, they are all rather light, even the ‘Toffee’ one. Four eye colors for the system eyes are also in the gift. I am showing the ‘Light Blue’. 

Leah comes with a small HUD for five eyelashes and twenty our lip colors. It also has a ‘glossiness’ meter and a ‘random’ animations button.  The gift also has BOM makeup for eyeliner, eyeshadow and lip color. I am wearing all three as well as the HUD eyelashes. In all, I think this is a very pretty shaped head. She’s very feminine even in profile. I will certainly being adding ‘Leah’ to my collection.

 

Shape + Eyes + Skin + Brow Shape + Makeup – Kalhene – Leah Mesh Head and Shape – FREE/0L – Free gift for the group – Kalhene Group is free to join

P.S. A big shout out and “thank you” to  Fab Reader Dutch Galaxy for alerting me to this awesome gift!!

Dreaming by the fire

Dreaming by the fire

Season’s Greetings, Fabulous Folk. As you’ve seen, Julianna is completely immersed herself in the Christmas cheer. So I feel I can do the same. Winter is fully upon us here in our little corner of the Grid and the Real World as well. In fact, there are little flurries of snow falling as I write this. So it’s the perfect setting to stay in beside the fire with a good book and a couple of happy puppers.

I’m dressed for the occasion in this casual turtleneck from Madcat Creations. It seems I’ve been showing quite a bit from this talented designer lately. And why not? Each piece is well built and  has excellent details. I know I certainly appreciate all the offerings for the men of Second Life since it can be difficult to find quality items on a budget.  This is the Snowflake Turtleneck Sweater, and you can pick it up for a little hunting and 1L as part of the “Dreaming of a White Christmas” hunt. If you’d rather not hunt, the gift is available for 25L on the Hunt poster. There is also a beautiful white snowflake dress in the same prize box for the ladies.

Future Christmas Trees and Hot Chocolate

Good evening, FabFree! It’s finally here! Christmas time! I love this time of year. I love everything about it: the weather and snow, the presents, the cooking! ALL of it. And it starts for me and my family on December 1. I missed my date a bit this year as I was having some real life computer issues ( hopefully resolved) So now I gotta make up for lost time. So… brace yourselves!

Fist on my list is this super cute sweater and skirt combo from Ari Pari. This is the ‘Clara’ outfit and you can pick it up for just 3 measly little Lindens since it part of the Candy Cane Hunt. You get a lot for your Lindens too. In the prize you get the sweater and skirt combo, the sweet Santa hat, and a HUD for three cute color choices and a color coordinating modesty patch. Each piece can be colored separately if you feel like mixing and matching.  It’s the perfect little something to go pick out a tree in.. dontcha think?

Fallen

Fallen

Oh I do love the Halloween hunt season here on the Grid. I am constantly amazed by the talented designers and the awesome clothes and jewelry and items they give us. For…free! I’ve done just enough building on second Life to know that this stuff is NOT easy so I hope you all thank your favorite designers and spend a Linden or two while you hunt.

SO, let’s talk Hunts. I’ve been bopping all over the Grid this week on Fallen gods Prophecy Hunt. Now, you only have until the 31rst to grab the HUD and finish the Hunt but that’s easily done. The Prophecy Hunt is a bit of a different breed of Hunt. First, you collect the Hunt HUD at the Fallen gods Sim. While you’re there, be sure to take a look at the special faire going on there.  Anyway, grab the HUD and teleport to the first store, find the hunt object ( An all – seeing eye) then you teleport to the next store. You don’t get the prize for each store till you complete the entire Hunt. The last teleport takes you to a massive prize room where you can pick and choose which ever free prizes you want or click the central pillar to receive all the prizes at once. Now, I know this sounds odd… but it works. The hunt objects are the fun challenging not the pull your hair out Twisted Hunt challenging. There were a couple of store that were… um… rather difficult. But, in the end, it was worth the frustration.

Having said all that… ya’ll still here… okay… Let’s look at some prizes.

My gorgeous gown is from Secrets of Gaia, this is the Asteria gown and it is stunning. I know my photo is gettin’ kinda artsy so I’m tossing the hunt photo for the prizes so you can see them. But I don’t think the Hunt photo does it justice. This thing is swoon worthy!

Sizes Included

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

My new jewels are from On a Lark. The ‘Gotland Orb’ s included HUD has 14 choices of jewel color and three metals. I foresee using this one a lot!

Lastly, I have a nifty new toy: The Prophecy Star from Jinx. The Star has it’s own hold animation and it revolves and drifts in a random dance over your hand. It’s really fascinating to watch.

So… go grab your HUD and get hunting. Hmmm the veils of the other world are parting and I forsee ….. you! In the prize room… grabbing your 55 absolutely free fantastic prizes!

The start of October

The start of October

Hey There and Happy October, FabFree! I know I’ve mentioned how much I love Fall before. Now take that and add about a million percent extra happy cause it’s October and that means Halloween is on the way! Halloween is my jam, baby!  LOL and after all that you’d think I was showing a Halloween costume… but I’m not. I know, “Juli is a weirdo”. But we knew that. 🙂

I’m actually talking about one of my favorite free Fall/Halloween Hunts – The Kiyomizu Autumn Hunt!  This hunt takes place in the Kiyomizu shopping ‘mall’ which is dedicated to Asian designers and venders. I don’t read Japanese or Chinese so if I offend anyone, please forgive me. So many of the designers here offer wild, weird and funny stuff. You have to check it out!

Of course, there are also some really lovely things for the Hunt to find. Like… this one piece outfit from M*Motion. This is “Autumn Outfit” and you can get it for free as part of the hunt. This really is one piece so it’s a great quick on and off outfit.  One note, there is a logo on the top for M*Motion. Normally, I don’t like logo items and usually I won’t show them. But this logo is so faded out and light… it doesn’t bother me. But I feel I do need to mention it’s there.

Let's Be Friends

Hello Fabulous Readers!  Ripley and I had such good luck when we checked out the trail of the Dark and Brooding Hunt that we decided to keep searching to see what other Fabulous Finds we could unearth.  Over at The Sissy Bar, we discovered another gorgeous hunt prize for just 1 Linden Dollar.

From the Dark into the Light

This sophisticated, strapless gown will have you ready for an evening on the town.  Its slimming black fabric features a subtle floral texture and a criss cross design to emphasis your waistline.  The full length skirt section drapes to the floor where it flares slightly for ease of movement.  It is simple yet elegant and allows your beauty to take center stage.  With versions for classic as well as multiple mesh body types, there is something for everyone in this dollarbie hunt prize.  All you have to do is locate the collection of pillar candles hidden somewhere in the shop.  In case you get stuck, there is a hint giver in the store on the hunt poster.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layer for classic avatars)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
