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.

Thinking Late Thoughts

Hello hello Fab Free! Are you ready for the new week to start? I’m not so sure I’m ready for Monday so I’ve been avoiding thinking about it too much by taking full advantage of the limited time free group join at Carol G. For a few days only the Carol G group will be free to join. There are quite a few male and female free group gifts, most if not all of which have been recently updated to include BOM layers. Also, there is a male and a female MM board that changes frequently.

I picked up this pretty red henna style leg tattoo for free by participating in the group only MM Board at Carol G. Once again, the free group join is a limited time thing, so if you’ve been waiting to join the group now is the time.

Appliers/Layers Included: Omega, Belleza, Maitreya, Slink, Legacy, BOM Tattoo Layers

I also came across this cool tied tank top at gSpot. It’s a current group gift, and it comes with a hud that has 5 color choices. I really like the bold color choices, and the arcane-like symbols in the pattern are a definite vibe. The gSpot group has a join fee of just 69 linden.

Sizes Included: Belleza Freya, Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass

Hello and happy weekend Fab Free’rs! Blue and I have once again gone on weekend getaway. This time it’s celebration of our recent engagement. Needless to say I’m beyond excited. While he checked things with our Uber driver, I double checked our list and made sure we didn’t forget to pack anything.

All three shops have free hunt prizes hidden all over inside stores and surrounding grounds. There are 12 free prizes, and several decoys. On this hunt you’ll find shoes, outfits, dresses, and more for your summer wardrobe. The hunt runs from now until August 12th.

My t-shirt, jean skirt, and dino sneakers are all free hunt gifts by Elusive. These gifts are hidden in angry looking little turtles that seem to be sulking in various spots inside and outside the shops. Be prepared to look high and low, indoors and outdoors, and watch out for those decoys!

Right Here Waiting

Right Here Waiting

Do people even wait by the phone anymore? Or is that anxious, often giddy anticipation felt when waiting for the phone to ring a thing of the past? I never thought I’d be someone who talked about how things used to be, and yet here I am. lol The July group gift at MINIMAL has me in a bit of a nostalgic mood I suppose.

The red phone booth I’m leaned against is MINIMAL’s free group gift for the month of July. It’s impeccably detailed, the door on the front even opens. It also comes in 3 colors/textures: red, black, and wood. I’ve added the vendor ad below so you can see it fully. The MINIMAL group is 250 linden to join, and there are quite a few past group gifts available along side this new one.

MINIMAL - July Group Gift

Speaking of gifts, did you know that a new round of FaMESHed recently started? I picked up this camo tied tee by Vinyl for free with the FaMESHed event group tag. This cute top comes in the camo pattern shown with several sizes. The FaMESHed group is free to join, and there are a hand-full of gifts to be had.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Freya, Isis), Signature Alice, MeshBody Legacy

To go with the top from Vinyl I added these cool hoops from Belle Epoque. They are the free Fabulously Free in SL group gift at Belle Epoque. These stylized eye earrings come with a hud that allows you to pick from 4 different metallic color options. The Fab Free group is always free to join. The gifts for the Fab Free group often change however, so don’t wait! Also Sunday July 5th is the last day of Belle Epoque’s store-wide 50% off sale. Happy shopping Fab Free!

Alleycat Ballet

Alleycat Ballet

Alright so I’m gonna call this look a little bit Flash Dance, and a little bit Cats. haha I actually had a lot of fun dressing up and taking photos in this, especially since the outfit is completely free. I picked up the top, bottom, and adorable socks for free at Voluptas Virtualis. As soon as I put the outfit on I felt nostalgic for those iconic ’80s and ’90s dance movies. Maybe it’s time for a movie marathon? haha

This awesome gift from Voluptas Virtualis is free for everyone. The matching “Hadi” top and bottom come in female sizes only, however the fuzzy socks come sized for male avatars as well as female. Both gifts are packaged together. Just click the vendor near the landing point and the gift will be sent to you. The “Hadi” set has a color/texture change hud with some fun tiger stripe options and solid colors. You can also hide/show the trim or color it separately. The socks have a color/texture change hud with lots of options. Also, if kitty feet aren’t your thing, fear not, there are solid color choices as well as stripes. I have no idea how long this gift will be available, so don’t wait!

P.S. There are also several other freebies in the same spot at Voluptas Virtualis, no group needed!

Outfit Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza Freya, Legacy Female
Sock Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Hourglass, Male), Belleza (Freya, Jake), Legacy (Female, Male)

Make Me Feel

Hello again Fab Free’rs, and welcome back to the blog. I just could not resist the opportunity to pair up with the indomitable Love Trill for this post. The MOVE! group gift at ACCESS gave us the perfect opportunity to show off some freebies and some dance moves at the same time. In true friend fashion, we also happen to be twinning in camo shorts from RKKN which are also free at ACCESS. To help pull my look together I added one of the 6 free group gifts at Versov. Watch the video, keep reading for more info, peep the end of the post for full credits, and above all have fun!

ACCESS

Move! put out this fun casual dance as their free ACCESS group gift. Don’t forget you’ll need the ACCESS event group tag to get these gifts. The ACCESS group is free to join. Ladies, you can also pick up these cute camo print shorts by RKKN at ACCESS for free. They come in 3 sizes, Maitreya Lara, Legacy, and Belleza Freya.

Versov 

The Lolitov sneakers I have on are free at Versov. You’ll need the Versov group tag to get them and the other free group gifts. Not to worry though, the group is also free to join. These shoes (like all the gifts) are a full fatpack of colors and include male, female, and unrigged sizes. We’ve shown a few of the other Versov group gifts like the Jumpov sneakers, the Zlatorov heels, and the Sandov slides before. They are all still available.

Sunday Market

Sunday Market

Hello hello Fab Free’rs. Something occurred to me today. In my teens I might have worn this look to a party… now I still love the look, but I wore it to the farmer’s market. I think my age might be showing a little bit. lol Either way, I’m enjoying my Sunday and looking super cute doing so. I picked up just about everything for this fun style for free at the current round of ACCESS. It’s a birthday/anniversary round for the event and I have to say it’s the biggest round of ACCESS I have ever seen.

Aline did a gorgeous job of showing off some of the free ACCESS gifts as well in her recent pose “A Little Bit Boujee” so be sure to check that out if you haven’t already. As she mentions, ACCESS runs from now until July 8th, and the ACCESS group is free to join so there’s time if the sims are full. There’s the main sim and a cam sim open. Now I have a lot to share with you, so let’s get to it!

Volthair

So technically this is a mens hairstyle from Volthair, but I love it anyway. Even Blue said it looked good, score! It comes in a full fatpack with all the color huds, and a hairbase hud for Catwa and Omega compatible heads. The Fitz hairstyle by Volthair is free at ACCESS. To get your copy you’ll need to join the free-to-join ACCESS event group and wear the tag when you click the little teal giftbox.

Fake Society

I feel like this safety pin jewelry set by Fake Society is an updated much cooler version of the plain ol’ safety pins I once wore as jewelry. The set is also free at ACCESS, and it includes earrings (shown) and a septum piercing (not shown) in silver, gold, and black. I would definitely consider this set unisex. The septum piercing I felt was a bit big for my face even with some resizing, which is the only reason I chose to not wear it.

Kibitz

Another throwback jewelry piece that I love, stretchy black chokers. This one is the free ACCESS gift by Kibitz. I think the little heart locket is a cute addition. This free choker can be sized via touch menu.

Cult

All the rings I am wearing are part of the free ACCESS gift by Cult. They are called the Rou rings and they are sized for Belleza, Slink, Vista, and Maitreya hands. This bento set comes in silver, and gold.

Movement

I couldn’t resist this fun tumbler drink by Movement. I love the little horns on the lid, and purple is a favorite color of mine. This cup has a bento hold pose, and can be sized via touch menu. It’s also another awesome freebie at ACCESS.

Sixx

Finally, the top that ties this all together is the free ACCESS gift by Sixx. This black pushed up crop top with the iridescent looking alien face is super cute. It is also somewhat revealing if you don’t wear something under it. I dug through my closet and pulled out an undershirt by Vinyl to wear with my Sixx alien shirt, and it worked out pretty well I think. Otherwise, be bold and show some skin!

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

Conversations with Herman

Conversations with Herman

Dogs really can be the best listeners, just look at how well Herman is paying attention! This sweet little pug pup was a surprise gift from my beau Blue. He knows how much I love fur babies, and these little pugs are irresistibly cute.

Herman (I named him after Herman Munster) comes from the JIAN Love Pugs gacha, which is currently just 25 lindens per play. There are 16 commons in this gacha set, and 3 rares. Like all gachas these Love Pugs at JIAN are transferrable, so you can gift them or trade them. I can’t think of a better gift then this furry little guy!

Before I settled down to chat with Herman, I did a little more hunting on the Women Only Hunt 6. There are so many good prizes to be had! For this look I wore the WOH6 hunt prize top from Nerido, the tattoo from Mister Razzor, and the necklace set from MIDNA. The Women Only Hunt 6 runs from now until June 30th. Keep reading and I’ll let you know about each of these fabulous hunt prizes.

Women Only Hunt 6 Hints & Surlshttps://flairforevents.wixsite.com/secondlife/women-only-hunt-designers

Nerido

My pretty rose-pink bustier style top is the WOH6 hunt prize at Nerido. It comes in 3 sizes (Maitreya, Legacy, Perky), and the single color shown. The best part? It’s absolutely free, you just have to find it!

HintLike in a reliable bank.

Mister Razzor

This floral mandala type black and grey tattoo is not only gorgeous, it’s also a free WOH6 prize at Mister Razzor. The Danica tattoo comes in Omega appliers, and BOM/Classic layers. You’ll also have the choice of wearing it at 50% or 75% opacity.

HintI love stuffed toys, toys, dolls, I’m a collector. Can you find me?

MIDNA

Both the necklaces I have on are included in the free WOH6 prize at MIDNA. These pretty necklaces are travel themed, which for me is just another reason to love them. They can be worn together or separately and include a customization hud. The hud will allow you to change the color of the metal, the beads/pearls, and the image/saying on the medallion. I chose the compass rose.

HintI got a pocket, a pocket full of sunshine.
