FabFree’s Pumpkin Problem

FabFree's Pumpkin Problem

In the last two-and-a-half years that I have served as a FabFree blogger, I’ve had the opportunity to get to know some absolutely amazing people! Today, I am talking about the FabFree team – and to me that includes all the great bloggers who have passed through the blog over the years. We (the FabFree bloggers) had the funniest inside joke last year about pumpkins. You see, when fall creeps around the corner there are ALOT of pumpkins to get all over the grid for free for about two months. Of course, we must show them to you! As a joke, we would say to each other: “No more pumpkins!!”, because the bloggers had shown off a copious amount of them last fall. It was hilarious to us!  But, the thing is… I never get tired of pumpkins! I love pumpkin soup, pie, bread, and lattes. Most of all, I LOVE to decorate my spaces in my Second Life with fall pumpkins and carved Halloween pumpkins! It’s still such a funny story though, and I wanted to let you in on one of the FabFree bloggers’ inside jokes. Do you think we can top the number of free pumpkins we showed last year on the blog? Let us know in the comments if you want to see more pumpkins this year!

A Free Pumpkin

And so the free pumpkin season begins! I have a free pumpkin for you! The freebie pumpkin is the one I am holding in both of my photos today. It’s a holdable item and it can also be rezzed. You can see the rezzed version of it on the left side of my photo at the top. This pumpkin is a free gift from -Extra- at the Fall Festival at Malus Park. No group is needed to get it! This event closes on October 1st.

An Autumn Hair Trivia Hunt

Now head over to the Autumn is Coming Event to grab the hairstyle I am showing in my post today. This hair comes from the Treasure Trivia Hunt run by Alli&Ali Designs taking place at Autumn is Coming until September 26th. This style is called “Ava” and it includes a HUD of autumn colors and styling options that lets you make the hair go over your shoulder, behind your back, or blow in the wind. You can see how I wore two of the four styles in my looks above and below! To get the treasure hunt items, first you must find all of the treasure chests hidden around the sim. When you click the ones that are on the treasure hunt, it will ask you a trivia question. When you get the answer right, the chest send you a free hair made by Alli&Ali Designs. In total, there are 17 hairstyles to collect from the Trivia Treasure hunt, which all come with an autumn colours hair colour hud. There are both female and male hairstyles on this hunt. The 18th prize on the treasure trivia hunt is some leaves decor. All of the free hair from Alli&Ali Designs comes from the treasure chests that pop up those trivia questions! For the trivia lovers out there, this is a fun little hunt!

As you walk around the Autumn is Coming Event, you will notice that many of the treasure chests simply send you the items for free, as these are the main event gifts from the other designers. Make sure you read Aline’s post here which shows some of the free gifts you can get from this fun pre-Autumn event!

FabFree's Pumpkin Problem II

A Snarky Top

Lastly, the cute top I am wearing is 10L at the Spoonful of Sugar Festival right here. This one is made by ZFG, one of SL’s wittiest creators. It’s very sarcastic. Read what the shirt says in my photo above, it’s funny. You will find this 10L prize in the coconut sugar bowl with the toucan on it. 100% of the proceeds of this item goes to Doctors Without Borders, and everything at the Spoonful of Sugar Festival is available from September 3rd-September 18th. You can read more about the Spoonful of Sugar Festival in my previous post here.

My Autumn Gallery

Welcome To The Fall Showing

Fall is my favourite decorating season. I put up a little autumn gallery made up of art I picked up at the Fall Festival, a fall-themed event that is running until October 1st at Malus Park. I have a couple of 50L pieces and a free painting to show you from this event, so check out the following designer’s booths to get these fall art pieces for a fabulous price!

  • The painting with the woman and the fall leaves is a free gift from Katharine Littlepaws Art Gallery.
  • The “Pumpkin Season” framed artwork is 50L from Cotton Blossom Artwork.
  • The “Fall is my Favorite Color” framed poster is also 50L, and you will also find this art work in Cotton Blossom Artwork’s booth.

On Me

  • My outfit is a free lucky board prize at Shanti. No group join is required to play the boards. This prize is called the “Upside Down Bohemian Outfit”. This is a Stranger Things reference for all the fans of the popular supernatural 80’s-era Netflix series. The set includes a top and skirt which can be worn separately. The outfit is textured with a black and white pattern which looks perfect for Halloween coming up! It fits Freya, Isis, Venus, Ebody Classic, Lara, Physique, Legacy, and Tonic Curvy & Fine.
  • The choker and earrings I am wearing are from The Arcade, and they are 50L per play from Heartsdale Jewellery. You can see a key below of all the pretty prizes available. There are 12 pieces of jewelry from this designer to collect at the September round of The Arcade, which is available to play until September 30th.

Settling Into Fall

Coming Soon
Hey FabFree! I am enjoying the fall season and decorating my home with lovely fall goodies. Before I jump into the decor I’ve found, I have an amazing free fall mug and drink to share. 

A Warm Pumpkin Spice Latte

Oh how I enjoy all things pumpkin flavored- especially lattes! You can grab this adorable pumpkin mug and drink at hive. It is a free group gift. 

Fall Decor!

Coming Soon

Now it’s time to share some amazing fall decor. I am loving the pumpkin season too! I got most of my decor from the Fall Festival at Malus Park which is a wonderful event to stock up on fall goodies. They have many giftboxes scattered around the event that cost 25L and under at the Fall Festival, which ends on October 16th. 

I also grabbed the banner from the Halloween Shop & Hop. The deals under 75L I am showing in decor today are:

  • The pot of pretty orange flowers is a 25L deal from Finca at the Fall Festival.
  • The beautiful fall leaves painting is 25L from Cwtch at the Fall Festival.
  • The two pumpkins that are breaking open with green ivy and brown leaves falling out of them cost 70L each, and you can find them at the Noveny booth at the Fall Festival.
  • Finally, the “Happy Halloween” banners are a free gift from Finca at the Halloween Shop & Hop

Enjoy, FabFree!

Shadow One Estates Fall Festival & Haunted Corn Maze

Fall Festival Haunted Hayride 2
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! I’m so excited about the up-coming Halloween weekend! If you’re like me and you can’t get enough of all the spooky fun, you need to visit the Shadow One Estates Fall Festival. There are so many scary fun things to do here that I’m certain I will accidentally leave one out. At the Fall Festival landing point you’ll see a sign with windlight setting suggestions. I highly recommend using them to enhance the experience. The photo below was taken using the suggested setting. Also at the landing point you’ll want to click the sign to receive your flashlight. There’s an information menu when you click the jack-o-lantern that has the “click here” sign. In that menu you can choose to get a gift, which is a silly pumpkin head mask.

In this same landing area at the Fall Festival you’ll see a pumpkin patch where you can pick your own pumpkin. Click the pumpkins and you’ll see funny messages in open chat. Once you find the “right” one you’ll be gifted your very own pumpkin. There’s also a table with treats and candies, take a grab from each bowl and get a cute little prize. Pru picked up a purple spider ring and some Halloween candy. There’s even a cute little spot with hay bales and pumpkins where you can take some fun fall photos.
Pru Haunted Hayride
After having done all your Halloween-loving little heart desires at the Fall Festival landing, you can head toward the haunted corn maze. There is the option of choosing to bravely go on foot through the maze, or hitch a ride in the horse-drawn carriage. Once you’ve completed the creepy haunted corn maze, you’ll end near the even creepier haunted house. You’ll want your flashlight for sure to explore the house and the surrounding haunted grounds at the Shadow One Estates Fall Festival. There’s even a macabre scavenger style hunt you can complete to be sure you aren’t missing any of the scary fun. You’ll find the list of things to find on your search on a board outside the windmill.

Whether you’re looking for a spot to spend a spooky date-night, or a scary fun-filled adventure with you’re friends, I would highly recommend the Shadow One Estates Fall Festival. Just be warned, though tons of fun, some of the sights and settings are frightful! However if you ask Pru, being a little scared is half the fun!

Waiting for The Great Pumpkin

Waiting for The Great Pumpkin
Hello again Fab Free’rs! Thanks for being here. Just like Linus, Pru finds a pumpkin patch to wait in for The Great Pumpkin to appear. Maybe one day he’ll actually appear! This particular pumpkin patch complete with little twinkle lights and pumpkin blossoms is a 10 linden Pumpkin Hunt prize by Lunaria at the Fall Festival for Parkinson’s. Each of the stores has a 10 linden pumpkin, and there are additional pumpkins in the shop booths outside. Most if not all the proceeds from the sales of the pumpkins will go to help fund research for Parkinson’s. I can’t think of a better reason to spend 10 lindens!

Along with the dreamy pumpkin patch prize, Pru picked up this cute coffin dress from Grumble. It’s a single strap dress with a spooky cute coffin pattern on the top. The dress is in the 10 linden pumpkin from Grumble at the Fall Festival. It comes in the following sizes: Maitreya Lara, Slink Physique, eBody Curvy, Tonic Fine, Tonic Curvy, Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus).

Last but not least the long dark hairstyle is one of two 10 linden pumpkin prizes by Firelight at the Fall Festival. This style is called Ophelia. The Ophelia hairstyle Pumpkin Hunt gift comes with a black and white color change hud, and has a tinting hud to allow you to add a tint to either color.

Here are the details, enjoy!
