Sweet freedom whispered in my ear
You’re a butterfly
And butterflies are free to fly
Fly away, high away bye bye

Fly away

Want to be a butterfly too? Auradacious has the perfect Hunt prize for you if you do! And it’s a sassy butterfly too. The floral sash barely covers the essentials but if you’re brave enough you’ll be the most beautiful butterfly in the sky. You get these beautiful bento animated wings both scripted and unscripted, the sash, a little butterfly friend and the silver crown. All for a little hunting and 3Ls for the Midsummer Nights Hunt.

Off to Hogwarts!

Off to Hogwarts
Good day my lovely witches and wizards! Have I ever mentioned how much I LOVE all things Harry Potter? I have been a Potter-maniac since I grew up with the series as a child and this week I was able to collect a few free and on-sale goodies in SL that are HP-inspired! What a treat!

Goodies from Muggleborn

At least one store in SL that is partially inspired by the Harry Potter series is Muggleborn, although it certainly takes an adult twist on the theme. Note that Muggleborn is an Adult-rated sim and if you are not over 18 you definitely cannot visit it; there are a number of adult-only themed items sold here. Aside from that warning, however, I absolutely LOVE this store! They even have this AMAZING top, shorts and ties set on their lucky boards to play for all to win. It includes a top, shorts and a tie. There are different styling/ stripping options for the top and tie, and the shorts can be adjusted for male/trans avatars as well. The tie also has different styling options. Each item comes with an HUD to change the colour pattern to the respective four Hogwarts houses (Gryffindor, Slytherin, Ravenclaw and Hufflepuff). To get these items, walk towards the back of the store until you see the “muggle” lucky boards and join Muggleborn‘s free group to play and win this amazing outfit!

In addition to these amazing gifts, Muggleborn has many fantasy-themed free group gifts and free past hunt items which you can get at the front of the store. This is also a brand new Stay at Home Club gift from them, which is a wand with a colour hud! This one may take the cake from me because now I can run around SL with a wand whenever I like with this free gift!!! I am so psyched about this!

Wisteria is Perfect…

This hair is perfect for visiting Hogsmeade, or for bundling up in the winter (even if it is spring now… it’s still snowing where I come from). The hair seen in this look above is Wisteria from EscalteD. This is a past MM board prize, and you can also win it on their Lucky Boards if you join their VIP group for 99L. This hair is a full fatpack of natural and unnatural colours which allow you to change the hair to different styles, change the colour of the hat and the pom pom and the hair bows on each braided ponytail. If you have no attention span for that, every hair at EscalteD is currently on sale for 50% as part of the Let’s Stay at Home event, so anyone can buy it right now at a discounted price.

Harry Potter Skins @ Ritual

Ritual Skins Sale- A Harry Potter Skins Collection

I should also mention that these gorgeous skins I am wearing are from Ritual. They currently have a massive sale on, where all of their skins are on sale for 100L. This is an amazing deal, and although not under our 75L limit, it is a steal I thought I should mention with this post. These skins normally go for hundreds and they are just gorgeous. These are four Harry Potter-themed skins which were previously sold at the Majik event sponsored by Muggleborn. Seen in order, this is Griffin, Slyther, Raven and Huffle. The skins include two tones each and the makeup is included in the skins; they can’t be removed. These are beautiful, so I just had to mention them! The Ritual store may be downsizing, so now is the time to support this amazing skins creator.

Have a magical day, Fab Free!

Cyberpunk’d

Cyberpunk'd 1

Ever have that feeling where you’re not sure if you’re awake or dreaming?
-Neo, The Matrix

Hey Fab Free! Stuck at home and need something to do this weekend? The Twisted Cyberpunk hunt will keep you busy and I am showing off more prizes from the hunt. If you are a fan of all things sci-fi, this is the hunt for you!

Twisted

The Twisted hunt has a reputation of being the hardest hunt on the grid, and I would have to agree with that stereotype. Twisted virgin hunters beware! For a list of the locations and side hunts please visited the Twisted Merchant List. The hunt itself is running until Tuesday the 31st so you have all weekend to find the main hunt prizes and conquer those side hunts. The legendary “End Game” (a hunt to do after you reach the last stop) will be open until April 8th! There are 18 prizes to collect at End Game. If you need some help make sure you join the Twisted hunt group, which you can join by copying this join code into your SL chat: secondlife:///app/group/73770da7-7d71-a54e-6e86-60a3e9281e07/about

As always, all of the twisted hunt prizes, side hunts and end game prizes are free (0 L). 

The Goods

I am showing off some of my favourite prizes that I’ve hunted so far. The outfit I am wearing- including the boots, top, skirt, and sleeves- are all prizes in the side hunt at QE Designs. Click the Twisted easels at each location for instructions on how to do the side hunts at each store!

Cyberpunk'd 2

I am also wearing this amazing collar from Neverwish. I just love it and it glows in the dark! This is their main hunt prize, but there are 6 additional collars to collect in total at Neverwish‘s side hunt in a variety of different colours. My hand cuffs also glow in the dark and are animated. These are one of the prizes at the first location of the hunt, Secrets of Gaia

On top of this free group gift skin from Ritual, Lyari, I am wearing the Binary Matrix Tattoo in Turquoise from Fallen Gods, another Twisted prize. It looks like a barcode and if very sci-fi-esque!

Have fun this weekend doing the Cyberpunk Twisted hunt! Make sure you check out these past posts from Juli and Pru who blogged other prizes from the hunt too!

Happy Hunting,

xx

Wicked

Steam Hunt 1

Hello Faboulouses! I don’t know if any of you readers are familiar with the book and musical Wicked, but this post was based on it. The novel’s protagonist, called Elphaba, is based on the wicked witch from the Wizard of Oz. Now I look just like her- witchy green skin and all- except I’m in steampunk attire too! I’ll be showing off this green skin 75 L promo, some more freebies from the steam hunt and a free hair in this post. Buckle up; this is a long one!

More Steam Hunting

I finished the Steam Hunt IV, and this is an outfit I came up with using the goodies from the hunt! I am featuring the free hunt prizes from Razmataz, Prism Designs, Dragon Lady’s Closet, Adele Arts, Pixel Box, Destiny’s Designs, and Sweet Revolutions. The STEAM XV’s grid-wide hunt is free and going on until March 31st- so get out there hunting to get these cool finds!

First off- my outfit is the prize from Destiny’s Designs. The top is a system top I have applied using bakes on mesh (BOM), and the skirt comes in fitmesh and mesh standard sizes (S-XL) which will fit a variety of mesh avatars with some help from your alpha hud. The lantern I am holding is one of five prizes from Pixel Box on the hunt. I also used one of the “Steampunk poses” from Razmataz in this shot.

The gate in behind me is the prize from Sweet Revolutions– it can be rezzed anywhere and be used for landscaping or sim-building- how cool is that!

Steam Hunt 2/Ritual Skin

This dashing hat, which includes a top hat for men as well, is the prize from Dragon Lady’s Closet and you can find these chic boots from the prize box from Prism Designs. Underneath my skirt, I am wearing some lovely omega applier tights which are in the hunt gift from Adele Arts.

Estha & Osha

I stumbled across a promo at Ritual Skins right now, where you can get 2 skins for the low price of 75 Linden. I am currently wearing the BOM version of the skin, but it also comes with a number of head appliers, body appliers, ear appliers and omega if you haven’t switched over to BOM yet. The skin comes in 2 shades: Estha and Osha, and you can wear the skin with freckles, without freckles and with black or white brows. I am currently wearing Estha. The skin can be worn as part of a fantasy outfit and the duo even includes elf or faerie ears. The shade of both skins is green, and it’s really beautiful. It reminds me of the character Elphaba from the book and musical Wicked, which I love. This green skin duo will be 75L until Midnight SLT on Friday, March 27th. As far as I know, there will be a weekly promo at Ritual for this prize so keep an eye out- especially if you love fantasy skins.

  • Genus
  • Lelutka
  • Catwa
  • Omega

Body Appliers Included

Green Locks

It isn’t easy being green, especially when you don’t have much hair to match your own skin in your inventory. Luckily Firelight! still has their free group gift out from March 2019 which is a beautiful long and green hairstyle for women. There’s a whole bunch of other gifts to grab while you’re there too! There’s even a brand new green hairstyle to match this skin!

Thanks for reading, Fab Free!

A Little Bit of Fantasy

A Litte Bit of Fantasy

Hey Fab Free! I have an exciting temporary free group join which I will be featuring in this post. Cog & Fleur is available to join for FREE until January 31st! The group offers many great gifts and freebies, and it normally costs 50L to join. Cog & Fleur specializes in period and vintage clothing, so you can get some really awesome Victorian, steampunk, 1920’s or regency-era clothing here. You can even find some casual contemporary outfits there on occasion, as well as fantasy outfits for your roleplaying needs. It is a really eclectic and unique place! Most of the clothes in the store are made for mesh bodies and they also sell beautiful jewelry and fantasy and roleplay costumes. There are some beautiful and unique items you can get from here, and it is one of my favourite stores.

The Cog & Fleur Updates & Specials Group

There are many benefits to joining the Cog & Fleur group, including exclusive monthly gifts which rotate regularly, and a group discounts and sales. The group also gives you access to the group MM board which rotates regularly and offers full outfits with accessories. There are also lucky chairs that cycle regularly.

The group join link is here:  secondlife:///app/group/55572c33-bdf1-6442-e922-30933bf663a4/about

A Viking Maiden

The outfit I have on above is an example of one of the brilliant MM board outfits you can win regularly with this group. I am wearing the Aijle Medieval Viking Maiden outfit, which is currently on offer for the group’s MM board. This is a great outfit, and so fun for roleplay. There is also a great fatpack of garter stockings available right now on the MM board at the store which is free, No Group needed. Go slap these boards and win!

FYI: Everything at Cog & Fleur at the moment is also 50% off, until Jan. 31st. So if you want a special outfit now is the time to get it!

Have fun, Fab Free!

Pure of Heart


Pure of Heart

There is magic if you believe in it. There are also freebies galore if you know where to look. The current round of Hot Summer 35L Sales is an excellent place to pick up quite a few free gifts. You’ll find clothing, poses, and even some beachy furniture. Also, the items at the booths are either 35 lindens each or 50% off regular price. The event runs now through July 31st, and you will need to join the 35L Sunday group. However, the group is free to join. The hair and dress I’m wearing are both free gifts at the Hot Summer 35L Sales event.

The Hair

This cute pinned up hairstyle is a free Hot Summer 35L Sales event gift by DeVon. Just don’t forget that 35L Sunday group tag. The hairstyle comes in the single ash blond shade shown. I also want to mention that as far as I could figure, it cannot be resized, it can however be repositioned.

P.S. The DeVon Gift also includes a brown shoulder bag!

The Dress

This pretty little dress by Melt is another of the many free gifts at the Hot Summer 35L Sales event. It comes with a color change hud that lets you pick from 6 jewel tones and black, for 7 total color choices. It comes in several sizes, and has an alpha layer making it suitable for classic avatars.

  • Sizes Included: Fitmesh (xs-XL), Maitreya Lara, Slink, Belleza Venus

Beyond Time


Beyond Time

Hi There Fab Free’rs! I don’t know about you, but now and then I could use some fantasy and whimsy in my life, especially when Second Life makes it so easy. The above photo was completely inspired by the Women’s Stuff Hunt prize at Ohemo. The floral jewelry set is their free Women’s Stuff Hunt gift, and I’m super excited to share it with you. The pose used is another freebie, it’s part of the Lyrium gift at the Pose Fair. Keep reading for all the information and details.

Yes, the full jewelry set is a free Women’s Stuff Hunt prize at Ohemo. Find the little red tshirt, and pay it 0 linden, and the hunt prize will be delivered to you. This gorgeous set includes the earpiece for both ears, headband, and necklace, all with a color change hud that has quite a few color options for the flowers, three choices for the headband, and the option to pick gold or silver for the metal bits.
Ohemo - Myranflower set (SL-Womenstuff hunt May 2019)

If you haven’t made your way to the Pose Fair yet, I highly suggest you go. Along with the pose used in the above photo, Lyrium has 2 full sets of poses as a free gift to the Pose Fair group members. The group is free to join. The part I like the most (aside from the nicely done poses for free!) is that the poses also come in a hud. This means you can wear the pose hud and cycle through the poses without having to rez a pose ball or dig through your inventory. There are 5 poses in this “Heavenly” set, with mirrored versions for each. Additionally, there is a second set of poses with this gift called “Falling.” Seriously, do not miss out on this awesome gift!

Dark Magics

Dark Magic

It’s no secret I love Role Play. I have a couple of favorites here on the Grid but I don’t think I can wear this stunning number to them. Or maybe I could… I’d certainly remind them that us elves aren’t always sweetness and light!

Dark Magics

My new RP gear is from Sweet Kajira’s ‘Bulma’ gacha at The 8th Midwinter Fair by Redeux. At just 25L per play, I admit, I played the heck outta that machine. Bulma comes in five gorgeous colors to collect. There are four separate pieces: The harness, belt, top and the rare skirt.

Christmas Angel… of Frozen Death!!

Christmas Angel...of Frozen Death!!

 

Folks, I am feeling Fierce! Sometimes you just have to let your inner warrior elven queen out. Am I right??

Angel on the attack

This is the Gabriel set from Jinx and it’s awesome… and free! I was fortunate enough to pick up this set from Jinx’s Lucky Chairs over in the Group sandbox. It comes with everything you see… the body suit, the paldrons, the sheer coat, the moon staff and these amazing wings. It also comes with a pair of matching gladiator knee high heels I’m not wearing. The details in the wings and on the staff are just impeccable. The body suit, coat and shoes are all Classic Mesh sizes and even though I fussed, I wasn’t able to make the shoes work for my Maitreya feet. Shoes aside, I still love this outfit and I think it’s perfect for the RP closet!

Now, if y’all will excuse me… I’m going to go scare some innocent villagers!
