Merry Gothmas

Merry Gothmas
Hey There Fab Free’rs! I hope you’re enjoying the weekend. I know I am enjoying this slightly naughty goth Christmas outfit thanks to group gifts from Pink Hustler, Queenz, and the current Fab Free group gift from Liquid. It feels festive and flirty, like a fun holiday party with friends or date night look. So bring on the eggnog and the Christmas music!

Pink Hustler

These cute braids with the Santa hat and ribbons at the ends are a FREE group gift at Pink Hustler. I really like the look of this style, especially the little strands in the front. They style includes a hud that gives you several “natural” hair color options, and an additional set of pretty pastels. The same hud will also let you pick from red, green, brown, or black for the hat and ribbons. The Pink Hustler group is currently 400 linden to join. I know that sounds like a lot, and it is, however there are quite a few group gifts still available. So if you have the lindens to spare, the Pink Hustler group is worth it in my opinion.

Liquid

To keep my all black holiday ensemble from being too, well all black, I picked up the current Fabulously Free in SL group gift at Liquid. The cute holly leaf face decal is one of 3 holiday themed options in this applier gift. Along with the holly leaves you can choose from a bell, a candy cane. Additionally, each image can be applied in color or black outline only. To get your copy of this fun FREE holiday gift, just wear your Fab Free group tag and click the gift vendor at Liquid.

Appliers Included: Catwa, Lelutka

Queenz

This group gift dress from Queenz is the naughty part of the ensemble. What’s so naughty about a sweater dress you ask? This particular dress has long peek-a-boo openings down each side. That bit of hip Pru’s flashing isn’t a wardrobe malfunction. The dress comes in 3 colors, black, brown, and navy. The Queenz in world group is FREE to join at this time. You’ll find this FREE group gift and others waiting on the right side of the shop.

Mesh Sizes Included: Slink Hourglass, Maitreya Lara, eBody Curvy, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus)

Here are the details, enjoy!

Owl Always Love You

Owl Always
Hello there Fab Free’rs! I hope everyone who celebrated Thanksgiving enjoyed the holiday, and that everyone is having a great week. I was visiting relatives for a few days and while it was a nice visit, I’m genuinely happy to be home. I’ve missed being here; I always do when I have to be away for very long. Now, to the good stuff!

There are just a few weeks left in the fall season, I for one have been enjoying the cooler days and the gorgeous autumn colors. Petite Mort recently set out an adorable set of cropped sweaters perfect for fall as a group gift. One sweater is brown with a cute fox graphic, while the other (pictured above) is a lighter shade of brown with an equally cute owl graphic. I love the extra long sleeves, and the slight cowl neck. Both sweaters come in several mesh sizes. At this time the Petite Mort group is just 75 linden to join. There are also group lucky boards at Petite Mort waiting to be played.

Mesh Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus)

Here are the details, enjoy!

Dilly Dally Dolly

Dilly Dally Dolly Pru

Dilly Dolls

Hello There Fab Free’rs! I’m so glad you’re here. Recently I had the pleasure of rediscovering a shop that at one point in my Second Life was a favorite. That store is Dilly Dolls. Dilly Dolls is a shop with a style that is all their own. Most would probably describe the style as gothic lolita, which is fairly accurate, however it’s a bit more colorful and playful than the average gothic lolita styles. I think the word Kawaii is appropriate.  You can find everything from shoes and dresses to accessories at Dilly Dolls.

Group Gift Room

Each of the cute accessories Pru has on in the above photo are a FREE group gift from Dilly Dolls at this time. The Dilly Dolls group has a one time join fee of 150 lindens. However, there are multiple group gifts still available. Near the entrance to the Dilly Dolls main store you’ll find a circulation desk. Look to the floor for a round teleporter, this will take you to the group only gift room. You will need to be wearing your Dilly Dolls group tag t0 use the teleporter. Once you’ve arrived at the Dilly Dolls group gift room, you’ll notice there are several group gifts available.

The Key

The first gift that caught my eye is this key shaped industrial ear piercing. I think I noticed it first because I see lots of septum piercings and face piercings, but not often an industrial piercing. This unique and detailed gift at Dilly Dolls includes a color change hud that lets you change individual parts of the key.  I had no trouble adjusting mine to fit the Pixie ears from Swallow.

Tea Cup Rings

Look no further than these cute little tea cup rings for a whimsical edition to any outfit. Also a group gift at Dilly Dolls, the rings come in two sizes and include a hud with a unique feature. The hud lets you pick the color of each tea cup from several preset colors, and it lets you choose to hid or show each of the 3 cups for added customization.

Sizes Included: Maitreya, Slink

Sunglasses Folded & Worn

The sunglasses are actually two separate gifts at Dilly Dolls, the pair you can wear, and the pair for being held/displayed. I love the idea of the folded pair as a held accessory and as a photo prop. Both gifts include a color change hud that lets you custom color/choose from presets for the studs, the frame, and the lenses.

Happy Shopping Fab Free! Don’t forget to teleport to the Group Only Group Gift Room for your gifts at Dilly Dolls!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Stories to Tell

Stories to Tell
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! It’s the weekend and I’m so glad. I had a long but productive week and now I get to play a little. I hope each of you are enjoying the weekend as well. I’ve got a few group gifts and some event gifts to share with you to create this sort of modern pin-up look. I hope you like these gifts as much as I do, I really had fun putting this look together.

Petry Model Store

There are actually several group gifts at Petry Model Store right now. I picked up two of them. These cute caged over the knee sandals, and the applier outfit are both Petry Model Store group gifts. I thought they went perfectly together. The Petry Model Store group is currently 50 linden to join. The shoes come in several mesh sizes. The outfit is in appliers only, and this single dark blue color only.

Shoe Sizes Included: Belleza (Freya, Isis), Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass)

Outfit Appliers Included: Maitreya Lara, Omega

Goth1c0

If you have not ventured over to The Coven event, you should, not only is there a lot of fun shopping, there are several FREE gifts as well. Goth1c0 put out this forehead tattoo as their FREE gift at The Coven. I love tattoos. This one is a pretty script that reads “Stories to tell..” above the right brow. The tattoo comes in a Catwa applier, and a Classic System layer. To get your copy of this fabulous gift, head over to The Coven and join the event group, it’s FREE to join. Then click the little cauldron outside the Goth1c0 booth and your gift will be delivered.

Chop Zuey

The current round of On9 has a new gift available from Chop Zuey. The jeweled septum piercing Pru is wearing is a FREE gift at the On9 event. The piercing comes in 3 metal tones, black, silver, and gold. There is also a color change hud for the gemstones. Usually you would need to wear an On9 group tag for gifts at the event, however I was able to pick this gift from Chop Zuey up for FREE with no group needed. The gift is waiting at the Chop Zuey booth at On9. Should a group become required, not to worry, the On9 group is FREE to join.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Mithral CHAIN

Mithral CHAIN

CHAIN CHAIN CHAIN

Hello there Fab Free’rs! Welcome back to the Fab Free blog. Once again I’ve found myself thinking “How did I miss these” this time about the group gifts I stumbled across at CHAIN. The CHAIN in-world group is just 50 lindens to join and there are currently 4 group gifts available. The simple yet dress Pru is wearing was their October group gift and is thankfully still available. It comes in a Maitreya Lara fit, and includes a color change hud with 6 of solid color options. I’m a sucker for classic black.

Mesh Size Included: Maitreya Lara Only

Another equally fabulous gift currently available at CHAIN is the set of stacked necklaces Pru is wearing. The necklaces are the November group gift at CHAIN. They also come with a color change hud to let you pick the metal tones and the color of the leather cord. Additionally, the fish bone choker can be worn separately from the two necklaces. I think these two gifts look gorgeous together. As I mentioned there are 2 additional group gifts available, a headband with cute lace kitty ears, and a crop top with a choker style collar.

Mithral at Hairology

I coudn’t help myself, I had to share this pretty ginger hairstyle from Mithral. It is another FREE gift at Hairology. This FREEBie comes in the single lovely shade of red shown with two sizes, and an alpha layer. Just in case you missed my previous post about some of the fantastic gifts at the 2nd Anniversary round of Hairology, you can take a look at it here. To celebrate the 2nd Anniversary of Hairology most of the participating designers have a FREE gift available, no group required.

Heavy is the Head that Wears the Crown

Sullen Girl
Hello There Fab Free’rs! You may or may not know that the November round of Gacha Garden is in full swing, and there are lots of  FREE gifts to be had. I went through a few days ago and picked up most of them, and did a little gacha-ing while I was there. While playing around with some of the gachas and the fantastic FREEbies from my Gacha Garden adventure, I came up with this look. I think she’s pretty in a moody sort of way. All the gifts at Gacha Garden are FREE. You will need to join the Gimme Gacha group, which is FREE to join, and wear the group tag. Then just click the gift boxes next to each vendor and your gift will be delivered.

Chocolate Atelier

While at the Gacha Garden, I picked up the FREE gift and played the gacha machine from Chocolate Atelier. The pretty lingerie is just 45 lindens per play, I got lucky and scored the Rare black version after just a few tries. The whimsical twig crown is the FREE gift from Chocolate Atelier. The lingerie comes in several appliers as well as classic system layers. The lingerie and crown pair beautifully together.

Lingerie Appliers Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink Physique, Belleza, Omega, TMP

Ayashi

The long beautiful wavy pastel hair Pru has is the FREE gift at Gacha Garden from Ayashi. This lovely long hairstyle comes with a pastel color pack with several pretty pastel options. The style also includes a crown which is not shown. The hair also comes in a regular fit and one for those of us with a slightly larger chest.

LIVIA

Yet another fabulous FREE gift at Gacha Garden is this gorgeous nude lip color from LIVIA. This single color lip gloss comes in several appliers and a Classic System layer for non mesh avatars. Don’t forget, you’ll need to join the FREE Gimme Gacha group and wear that group tag to get this and all the other FREE gifts at Gacha Garden.

Close Your Eyes

You Can Close Your Eyes

Well the sun is surely sinking down, but the moon is slowly rising,

so this old world must still be spinning ’round, and I sill love you.

So, close your eyes.  You can close your eyes; it’s all right…

Hello again, Fabulous Readers!  My first stop at The Cart Wash Sale was the Baci Shop display, where I found the Last Leaves Dress that I blogged about {HERE}.  Ripley and I planned to start checking out the rest of The Cart Wash, but before we began our journey, I couldn’t resist scooping up another Fabulous Find from the Baci Shop, this gorgeous sweater dress.

Visiting the Baci Shop, Again

With rich tones, long sleeves and a chunky knit, this frock will keep me toasty warm well into autumn.  I love the bright pops of color in the simple flowers, which contrast beautifully against the ombre background of the “Again” dress.   Its snug fit draws attention to my curves in all the right places.  I could see myself sporting this dress in RL as well as SL, if only temperatures were below the 90’s.  (Hang in there, Kat, we’ll get there….).  Priced at only 10L, this budget-friendly, gorgeous sweater dress will snuggle you in warmth and style, while leaving plenty of spare linden dollars for more Cart Wash finds.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha Layer
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

So Many More Discoveries to Make…

With two Fabulous Finds just from one vendor at The Cart Wash, Ripley and I are eager to explore further.  I’m sure we will be back soon!  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Wiggling My Fingers

Snapshot_001

Hey there Fabulouses!  On March 8th, Slink announced that they had updated their mesh hands in the redelivery system to Bento for FREE for those that have already purchased their slink hands.  My IM box was lighting up like crazy with the news, and the notecards were flying in… Yet I put off going to pick up the free update worrying that it would be confusing, have some kind of costly catch and be time consuming to set up.

Procrastination

I went on with my week as per usual, all the while thinking…  “I should just go get them, and figure it out“, but it wasn’t until last weekend when there was some fun chat going on in the Fabulously Free in SL group about these new hands!  Fab member Brinlea cracked me up when she mentioned that she was so excited about her new Slink Dynamic Hands, that she was logging in just to watch them move around.  News of this inspired me to head down there and pick them up!

Boy was I surprised to find out that:

    1. They were easy to figure out.
    2. No purchase of new skin appliers was necessary as I could use the slink appliers I already had to match up to  my skins.
    3. There are plenty of affordable bento animations and poses available to make your hands move.
    4. It comes with basic poses, and nail add-ons.

See for yourself!

I made a couple of quick little GIF snaps of my avatar wearing the Slink Dynamic Hands with a Bento Animation so that you can see how the new hands have movement.  SO COOL! You’ll be logging in like Brinlea and I to watch your hands move too…

What’s “Bento” ?

Here’s how Jeremy Linden explains what bento actually is…  https://community.secondlife.com/knowledgebase/english/enhanced-skeleton-project-bento-r773/

More information can be found on the Slink Blog – https://slinkstyle.com/2017/03/08/slink-dynamic-hands-aka-project-bento-comes-to-slink/

In closing…

In closing, I did want to mention that if you picked up the free update right away when it was released, that you should go back and make sure you have Version 1.3 as they fixed a couple bugs.  You should also know that you’ll need to be on a Bento compatible viewer to see the movement.
