Guilty

If I’m being accused of enjoying the freebies I picked up at The Jail event, guilty as charged! I know I know, I already did a post about the event, and the fact that they’re having an anniversary. I just couldn’t help sharing a few more of the fantastic gifts. Incase you missed them, Aline posted about The Jail event gifts here, and my last post “Who Run the World” featured a few of them as well. The Jail event gifts are all free, you just need the free-to-join group tag. For this post I’m featuring the free gifts at The Jail event by Simply Saddii, Immortuos, and Dark Love.

Simply Saddii 

I really like this little black dress by Simply Saddii, and not just because it’s free at The Jail event. I like the style of the dress, and I feel like it has just the right amount of whimsy without being too juvenile for my taste. Again, this dress is free, just wear your Jail event group tag and click the gift vendor at the Simply Saddii both.

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

Immortuos 

The chest tattoo I’m wearing is the free Jail event gift by Immortuos. It reads “guilty” and I find it dark, a little bit cheeky, and really well done. It also comes in “irritation” levels which gives it some added detail that most lettering tattoos. The irritation shows as the redness around a freshly inked tattoo or perhaps skin irritation around the letters for some other reason.

Layers/Appliers Included: BOM Layers (tattoo, tattoo irritation1, tattoo irritation2), Omega Applier

Dark Love

Finally, the planchette and hold pose used for this photo is part of the free gift by Dark Love at The Jail event. The gift includes 4 planchettes, each with a different hold pose. I thought this gift was just too cute to not share. The planchettes also have a little particle effect. They emit cutely sinister looking little particles while you hold the planchette.

Giuliadesign

The vest style top I am wearing is part of the free Jail event gift by Giuliadesign. I like this piece a lot because I think it looks sexy, but makes me feel like I am being sexy on my terms, for myself. That is an empowering feeling. This top comes in a dark purple color with a white collar as shown. There’s also a matching mini skirt and shoes in the gift, which I chose not to wear.EUSOPIA

  • Shirt Sizes Included: Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Maitreya Lara
  • Skirt Sizes Included: Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Maitreya Lara
  • Shoe Sizes Included: Slink, Maitreya

Hanz

The tattoo I am wearing is by Hanz. It’s also free at The Jail, just don’t forget that group tag. I’m happy to say that this tattoo is unisex. It comes tattoo comes in appliers and BOM layers so anyone should be able to wear it, classic or mesh.

Appliers/Layers Included: BOM Layers (Faded, Fresh), Belleza Applier, Slink Applier, Signature Applier, Omega Applier, Maitreya Applier

Madame Noir

Lastly, the choker I have on is a free Jail event gift by Madame Noir. It’s called the Elektra necklace and it has a cool metal clasp in the front. It also has resize scripts, and a color change hud. The hud has several solid color choices for the leather/fabric and different metallic options for the metal bits.

It’s rare for me to envision something and then have the ability to manifest what I see in my mind with the tools at my disposal. Death Row Designs and Roawenwood gifted me the ability to really create the sort of diabolical yet romantic scene I had floating around in my imagination. So if this reads like a heartfelt thank you, it’s exactly that. I’ll always be inspired by and grateful for designers who give gifts that are beautifully detailed and thoughtfully made.

Death Row Designs 

I’ve always enjoyed the juxtaposition of the beautiful with the horrific. It’s easy to believe something ugly is sinister, but what of something or someone truly stunning? I find it thrilling in story telling to consider that under a lovely façade lies something malevolent. Death Row Designs often embodies this motif, gorgeous “ruined” things. They have three such things as their free October group gifts, and a fourth group gift that I didn’t show in my photo but is in the vendor ad below. There’s a broken and blood-drenched china tea set, a beautiful set of fall décor that includes a shelf with tchotchke and a silver mirror, and lastly a haunting wall lantern hanging from the fingers of a devilish outstretched arm. The Death Row Designs group is free to join.

FOUR New Group Gifts Now at DRD!!

Roawenwood

I’ve always felt that Roawenwood often has an inkling of darkness to their furnishings. Nothing too wicked, but just dark enough to be alluring. They have a lovely macabre chair and foot-stool set complete with a display ouija board, and drippy candle with darkly romantic red roses and human skull. The furniture itself has a deep purple-blue color, and a texture that makes me think of velour. There’s also a throw blanket over the stool that has gold-like flecks in it. The “Spirit Board Chair Set” is Roawenwood’s free hunt prize for the Fallen Gods Prophecy Hunt. Please click or copy the link below for the ins and outs of the hunt, including hints, and gift previews.

Mad Hair

I have already gotten a lot of compliments about this hairstyle! It is so cool. And the good news is that it’s only 10 L at Mad Circus 6. It includes a style hud and two colour change huds. What an awesome 10 L gift from EscalateD! There is a 10 L special in every booth at Mad Circus.

The other spooktacular item I am showing off today is the lovely Dancing Skeletons Dress, a hunt prize from Ari-Pari on the Hunt on Haunting Hill 4 Hunt. This is a wonderful dress and it only costs 1 L.

Sweet but Psycho

Sweet but Psycho

Oh hello there Fab Free’rs! Welcome back to the blog. I’m not plotting anything sweetly sinister, I swear. I am however happy to share a few more of the Kustom 9 event gifts with you. My long-sleeved top and this doughnut clad knife are both free at Kustom 9. You will need to join the free-to-join Kustom 9 group and wear the group tag to claim your free gifts.

AsteriodBox

I love the look of this top by AsteroidBox. The thin stripes, slightly pointed sleeves, and leather straps give it a lot of style. There’s also a well done oval cut-out in the back of the shirt for some added detail. This top is free at Kustom 9, just wear the Kustom 9 group tag.

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

Zenith

This could-be threatening knife stacked with doughnuts and tied with a sweet bow is free at Kustom 9. It’s made by Zenith and has a hold pose that can be turned off or on by touch menu. It also has a hud with a few options to color the doughnuts, and the ribbon.

I’m Lovin’ It!

I'm Lovin' It

If you have not made it out to Kustom 9 yet, you need to go! I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again, there are so many things happening in Second Life right now! Pun intended, I really am lovin’ it!

The current round of Kustom 9 is an Anniversary round! That means tons of free gifts from the participating designers. For this look I picked up the free Kustom 9 group gifts by Tram, ILAYA, Amitomo, and Hangry.

ILAYA

I am a loungewear kind of girl a lot of the time, especially when I know I’m not going to be leaving the house much. This free Kustom 9 gift set by ILAYA is the quintessential t-shirt and shorts with the cutest Halloween print. I also really like that this set is not in the typical Halloween colors. You’ll need the Kustom 9 group tag for these gifts. The group is free to join.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara/Petite, MeshBody Legacy

Amitomo 

The green cord choker is the free Kustom 9 gift by Amitomo. This pretty choker comes fitted for Maitreya Lara bodies, and the single green and gold version shown. I know it’s hard to see in my photo (my bad!) but the gold lettering reads “moonchild.”

Hangry

Second Life really allows me to be the junk-food junkie I would love to be in real life. lol These french fries are the free gift at Kustom 9 by Hangry. For once I didn’t have to worry about my fries being unhealthy! Also, the bento hold pose is part of the item.

Tram

Finally for this look Tram has cute wispy bangs as their free Kustom 9 gift. The bangs are meant for the hairstyle I’m wearing which is also for sale at Kustom 9, however since they come in a Tram color fatpack you could wear them with other Tram hairstyles.

Happy Halloween Month!

Happy Halloween, Fab Free!

I know it’s not actual Hallows eve yet, but Halloween is basically all month in my eyes and I’m pretty sure SL feels the same way. Halloween is my favourite time of the year, so I decided to celebrate with a spooky music video with some creepy goodies you can grab on the grid for free and under 75L right now.

I bring to you…

Thanks for watching, Fab Free, and Happy Halloween!

Autumn Lover

Autumn LoversI am an Autumn lover. It’s my favourite season of the year, Fab Free, and I am loving the weather this year! I was delighted to find this sculpture of what I am now calling the “autumn lovers” at Luane’s World which can be seen behind me in my photo. I love all the fall leaves! I even got this spring dress to match and even if it’s not completely suited for fall weather, I am loving how the colours match the trees.

Gifts from Whimsy

Both the dress and the boots I have on right now are free group gifts over at Whimsy. Both items are full fatpacks and highly customizable. Go head over to Whimsy now and grab all the amazing gifts there.

Thanks for reading, Fab Free! Enjoy Autumn!
