A Bunch of Hocus Pocus

Hocus Pocus

“My darling girl when are you going to realize that being normal is not necessarily a virtue? It rather denotes a lack of courage.” – Aunt Francis, Practical Magic

Welcome back to the blog Fab Free! I am loving some of the October group gifts I’ve come across recently. It’s always thrilling to find freebies that I feel match my personal style when I wear them. For this post I found just that in the free October group gifts from Eternal Limited, POUT!, and Belleposes.

Eternal Limited

I love the playfully witchy print of this dress by Eternal Limited. I was so excited to find this cute dress is their free group gift for October. The group is also free to join.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza Freya, Slink Hourglass, MeshBody Legacy

POUT!

This time of year also gives the opportunity to wear some creative and beautiful makeup looks. I love the bold colors and the stitch detail of this eye makeup by POUT!. It is also a free group gift for the month of October. The POUT! group is free to join.

Appliers/Layers Included: Catwa BOM Layers, Genus BOM Layers, Catwa Applier, Genus Applier, Lelutka Evo Applier
[POUT!] Monster Shadow - Group Gift

Belleposes

Lastly, it just wouldn’t be October in Second Life without some spooky poses for taking all the fun Halloween photos. The October (from 2018, but still available) group gift at Belleposes is a fun set of 3 witchy poses. Belleposes is free to join as well.

Possessed

Possessed

Hello There Fab Free’rs! Once again I’m feeling very in the spooky spirit of the season. I a few more of the many many many Halloween Shop & Hop gifts. I created this almost pretty possessed look using the gift skin from YS&YS, the gift dress from Luas, and the septum piercing gift from RAWR!. I really hope you have some fun with these freebies.

YS&YS

I can’t help but love this free skin from YS&YS at the Halloween Shop & Hop event. Even with her scarred face, she’s still a pretty chick. This would be such a fun skin to create a story around. This free gift includes BOM layer full skins, face only BOM layers. There are also variations to suit Genus, Lelutka, and Catwa heads. There are also two pairs of BOM layer eyes, the “blind” eyes shown and a creepy cool black pair.

YS&YS @Hallowen Shop & Hophttp://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Sugarplum/150/70/52

Luas 

This skeleton print dress is the free gift at the Halloween Shop & Hop by Luas. The “Donna” dress comes in a full fatpack with lots of HUD based color choices. Even with the exposed shoulders the dress has an almost cozy look to it that makes it a cool addition to any fall wardrobe.

Sizes Included: Belleza Freya, Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass, MeshBody Legacy & Perky

Luas @Halloween Shop & Hop http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Aurelian/165/28/53

RAWR!

Lastly, the planchette septum piercing from RAWR! was just the added touch this look needed. It’s also free at the Halloween Shop & Hop event. Included with the piercing is a color change HUD that gives you several options for the metal ring and the planchette part of the piercing.

Big Love

Big Love

Love is an adventure. It can make you feel 50 feet tall, and capable of anything. Perhaps that’s why I felt a bit bold and adventuresome while wearing this dress by DM. It’s the perfect casual dress, comfortable, not too short, but not too long, and just the right mix of edgy and cute.

Lucky for us this dress also happens to be a free group gift at DM. The gift includes a color change hud with a few solid color options for the main part of the dress. The DM group is free to join.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara & Petite

Also, my starry violet eyes are from a mid-week “Golden Days Weekly Sales” sale offer at Madame Noir. Blue told me about the sale, and I of course had to check it out. Madame Noir has two sets of beautifully detailed eyes on sale for 55 lindens from now until the 25th. You will need to join the “Golden Days Weekly Sales” group to use the vendor. The group is free to join.

I Heart Kittens

Fabfree Post: I heart Kittens

Furbabies are fun

I have recently adopted a cute little black kitten in real life. She is full of crazy fun energy all day and night!! She follows me around the house and sleeps on me whenever I sit down for a moment. Her little mew is a cute reminder of how we were all small once, about three days into her being in her new home with my rl family she started purring and coming out more. She’s grown to understand that even though it’s a new place with new people we are here to make sure her little kitten life is purrrfect.

As I am typing this out she’s trying to play with me by pawing at my fingers, tapping my arm and trying to eat the words on the screen ^^ which makes it hard to do anything recently because anytime I start to type I have to stop and laugh. It’s taken me 12 attempts to type this entire paragraph out and Miss Mazikeen wants to play, so I must get to the details sooner than later.

Candy Kitten has a new free gift out for Kitty Lovers! There’s no group needed for you to snag this cute dress either! Just tp to the shop, walk to the back where the group gift and lucky letter boards are, and it’s right there to the left! The free gift comes with a hud and gives you 10 pattern choices featuring different cats. So cute and cuddly you will want to sleep wearing this dress every night.

Fits:

  • Maitreya
  • Freya
  • Legacy

Read My Mind

Read My Mind

If you could read my mind like the expression on my face would you know what I am thinking?

It was one of those nights out like I hadn’t had in a long while. Summer in the south means even the nights are hot, but not nearly as sweltering as the day. Just about any excuse to get out and take your mind of the heat after the sun has gone down is welcome. Street racing is a popular pass-time, and it brings with it an exciting atmosphere where one can socialize after dark. Afterward there’s always a favorite dive bar where everyone is welcome, even if you don’t drink, and people play pool all night long even though the table hasn’t been level in years. It was fun to get dressed up, and get out of the house for a reason that didn’t include grocery shopping. To see, and be seen.

Eternal Limited

This is one of those outfits that you dress up in for no one else. You wear it for yourself because it looks good, and you feel good in it. From the moment I put this dress on I felt like a sexy goth pinup ghoul, like it was made just for me. Depending on the lighting this sexy dress from Eternal Limited has the look of satin, latex, or leather. The purple flames on the skirt remind me of the custom paint jobs you see on vintage hot rods, and for me that is just icing on an already delicious cake. Because of the hip-high slits on either side of the dress I felt more comfortable wearing it like a long top with cute black skinny pants. So now that I’ve sold at least some of you this hot little dress, I’ll tell you the price. Free. Yes, free. It is one of several free group gifts at Eternal Limited and the group is free to join.

Sizes Included: Altamura, Maitreya Lara, EBody Curvy, Slink Hourglass, Belleza Freya, Legacy (Original, Perky)

This is Wrong

Though the name of the store is This is Wrong, their new Stay at Home Club gift tattoo is so very right. It is a unisex upper body tattoo and it’s completely free. You do not need to join a group to get it. As with most of the Stay at Home Club gifts you just pay the vendor zero linden. This free tattoo gift at This is Wrong is waiting just inside the store and to the right along with their previous Stay at Home Club gift which was originally shown here.

Cute N’ Nerdy

Cute N' Nerdy

Bibliophile –
noun
A person who collects or has a great love of books.

Hello there Fab Free’rs! I was one of those kids that spent way too much time afraid of being called a nerd. I’d hide my love of books, fantasy, and anything that might label me as geeky, nerdy, or dorky. The funny thing is, all that hiding never gained me any popularity either. Now that I’ve fully embraced my nerdiness it’s pretty darn awesome if I do say so myself! Alongside my nerdy adoration of books I love fashion and can get especially geeky about a great bargain.

TRS Designs

For this look I picked up the free Stay at Home Club gift dress at TRS Designs. I have to say this dress is even cuter on than it is in photos. I really wish I’d picked this one up sooner. It has the loose fit of a t-shirt dress, with the added details of leather-like straps that come together in a Y shape in the back. I’m also loving the wine red and slate grey tie-dye. To get yours simply head over to TRS Designs and purchase the dress for zero linden from the Stay at Home Club vendor.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Frey, Isis, Venus), Slink (Physique, Hourglass), TMP, Standard Mesh + Alpha (xxs – L)

DAPPA

I also don’t think it’s a secret that I love tattoos. DAPPA has been a recent favorite tattoo shop of mine. This heavily detailed upper body tattoo is the newest group gift at DAPPA and I’m geeking out about how great it looks. It’s a unisex tattoo with several appliers and BOM layers each with the choice of a fresh or faded look. The DAPPA group is free to join, and there are several male/female/unisex free group gifts available.

Appliers Included: Omega, Maitreya, Slink, Legacy, Signature, BOM Layers

DAPPA - Akuma Tattoo. FREE GIFT!

BND

Last, but not at all least, no cute nerd girl look would be complete without glasses. I love these round specs by BND. They are just 5 linden on the Marketplace. With the glasses you get a texture change hud with options for the frames and lenses. There’s also a backup pair of glasses just in case you need them. Also, they can be manually resized which I really like.

I hope you enjoy these freebies and cheapies, happy shopping Fab Free, and always let your true self shine!

Last Minute Weekend Get-a-way

Coming soon to Fab Free

I decided to go on a weekend trip to do some special shopping! Now that I’m back at my hotel, I am trying on all the lovely things I found. SL17B is ending this weekend (July 12th), so it’s your last chance to grab all of the amazing gifts at Second Life’s 17th Anniversary. Today I am showing off three free gifts from the event, and a free lucky letter prize from Selene Creations.

Last chance

Some of my favourite items I collected from SL17B includes the following three free gifts I’m showing off here:

  • A hair fatpack from Sintiklia, includes a style HUD and hair colour hud essentials pack. Pick it up at the Gleaming sim.
  • A free AO from Sweet Lovely Cute/Body Language; this is a full-functioning AO and very cute. It includes runs, walks, stands, flying animations and more. Sweet Lovely Cute/Body Language AOs are fully Bento and valuable- so this is a great freebie! You can pick it up at Jubilant.
  • This cute dress by Safira which comes in blush, lilac and blue, sized for Freya, Isis, Maitreya, Hourglass and Legacy. As all of Safira’s clothes are, it is well-made and adorable. You can grab it at Snowflake.

Darlin’ Darla

In addition to the great gifts at SL17B, I snatched up some awesome gifts and lucky letter prizes over at Selene Creations. Their VIP group is currently free to join for a temporary period. Included with the group join are years’ worth of past free gifts and a huge wall of lucky letter board prizes. I did the boards and walked away with a shopping spreeeee! I am showing the Darla heels from that haul.

Sizes included:

  • Maitreya
  • Slink

Thanks for reading, Fab Free, and have a fun weekend getaway!

Roleplay, Witches and Hunts!

image 2 improved

I was inspired by a post Bunnie Francis did a few months ago about Spellbound, run by Madpea. I did the Spellbound hunt/game last week, and it is super challenging and fun. If you finish the game you can even win some free prizes, as Bunnie showed us in her post. Happily, Spellbound is running until December, so maybe you can play it for fun sometime this summer after the craziness of June’s freebie hunting is over!

Today I’ll be showing the freebies I used to make my witch roleplay outfit, which I had fun putting together and wearing while I explored the Spellbound sim.

The PoseStuff Hunt: 1 of the 5 Allstuffs Hunts

Right now the All Stuff hunt is going on, and I’ve been working my way through some of the hunts going on there all month. Wow, is this a huge and impressive hunt! The poses used here are one of the hunt prizes on the Posestuff hunt, from the first stop on the hunt.  These poses come from a whole pack by Poses With Attitude, which can be found for free at the Stuffs sim. This stop will take you to the starting point for the Womenstuff, Menstuff, Posestuff, Kidstuff and Homestuff start point, so you better start hunting now if you want to get in on this great multi-hunt event! For more information on each of these hunt go to the stuff groups website, click on the hunt you want to do at the top and click the hunt hints listing for each hunt. I have also linked the hunt pages directly above. All five hunts end on June 30th.

This Adorable Dress

If you want to pull off the look I have going here for some magical roleplay, you can actually get this great dress for free. This dress is one of my favourite items, and it is a lucky chair prize at the Versus Event sim. They have a number of lucky letter outfits available right now. To get the lucky prizes, all you need to do is join the media-sl.com group, which is free to join. The nice thing about the free Versus lucky letters is that you can still get them even if the current round of the event is closed; the sim with the lucky chairs stays open all the time. So hop on over to Versus right now, wait for your letter and grab this dress for free!

Sizes included:

  • Belleza (Freya, Isis & Venus)
  • Maitreya
  • Slink (Physique & Hourglass)

The Amazing Bonnie Boots

These great boots, called the Bonnie Boots, are a free MM Board prize by Paper.Sparrow. I am in looove with these boots and anyone can get them by participating in their free Midnight Madness boards everyday! The MM prizes rotate, but keep yours eyes out for them at Paper.Sparrow!

Sizes included:

  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

Thanks for reading, Fab Free, and happy hunting!
