A Midnight Treat

Vertigo

Hello Fabulouses!  Yesterday when the pupster and I were on one of our jaunts around the grid, we happened to stop in the Vertigo Design mainstore.  Ripley led me upstairs right over to the Midnight Mania boards lined up on the wall.  This gorgeous Glinda gown caught my eye, so I crossed my fingers, then gave the board a quick slap.  When I logged in tonight after work, I was thrilled to see an inventory offer pop up on my screen.

Simply Bewitching

With its curve hugging style that widens at the hem, plunging neckline and criss-cross straps in the back, Glinda will have you ready for an evening out on the town.  A whimsical, glittering spider web design makes the gown ideal for more formal Halloween get togethers.  It’s not showing in my picture, but the left side of the dress features a daring thigh-to-hem slit to help you show off your legs.  Best of all, you can “splurge” on this gown and still have plenty of Linden Dollars left in the budget for goodies for October’s Trick or Treaters because you can pick it up entirely for free.  Simply head to the shop and give the Midnight Mania board a tap -there’s no group required.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fitmesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (no alpha layer)
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

Until my next post, happy shopping!

~ Kat (and Ripley)

Fab Free Designer Friday – 01/19/2018 – Hanau

Hanau Exterior
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! Once again we are bringing the week to an end on the Fab Free blog with this week’s Designer Friday post. This week we are taking a look at the Hanau main store. For those of you that are unfamiliar with Hanau, they are probably best known for women’s applier clothing and lingerie. However, they also have mesh clothing and some accessories. I think the colorful tree outside their store is a great visual representation of their clothing style. No silly, it doesn’t look like trees, but it is vibrant and playful! Also there are lots of opportunities for you to score some really cute FREE clothes at Hanau. Keep reading to learn how.
Hanau Offers & Gifts
The Hanau store is well laid out with clear signage. I love it when shops are so easy to navigate! At the landing point is where you’ll find the “information wall” and the “circulation desk” that most if not all shops seem to have. This is also where you’ll find various group gifts. One of such gifts is the exclusive Fabulously Free in SL group gift. This gift was previously announced in a post by Love here. It is FREE to all Fab Free group members, and of course the Fab Free group is FREE to join. At the circulation desk is where you’ll find the most recent Hanau group gifts. The Hanau group also happens to be FREE to join at this time.

As you browse through the Hanau main store, you’ll see a gacha room. This is also where the FREE for everyone lucky letter boards are located along with the FREE for everyone Midnight Mania board. I say “FREE for everyone” because these boards do not require any group to participate. I didn’t get the exact time, however the Lucky Letter boards do seem to change quickly. I hope you enjoy shopping at Hanau and all the fabulous freebies they have to offer.

Fab Free – Designer Friday – 09/15/2017 – Heaven & Hell

Heaven & Hell Exterior
Hello Hello Fab Free’rs! I’m always glad you’re here, especially on Friday (okay, almost Saturday)! I’m sure it goes without saying that this is indeed the Fab Free Designer Friday post for the week. Heaven & Hell is this week’s featured designer. Also you’ll be happy to know that Heaven & Hell has clothing for ladies as well as gentlemen. Along with clothing you’ll also find shoes at Heaven & Hell. The style could best be described as fun and flirty, leaning more toward casual clothing, but with some what I would call “date night” looks.

From the moment you enter the Heaven & Hell main shop, it’s obvious there is a lot to see. Just to the right of the circulation desk you’ll see boards mentioning associated groups and events. This is also where you can find the exclusive Fabulously Free in SL group gift. The gift is FREE to all Fab Free group members, just be sure to wear your tag. If you’re not already a Fab Free group member, there’s a joiner above the gift. The Fab Free group is and always will be FREE to join.
Heaven & Hell Offers
Once you’ve picked up your copy of the FREE Fab Free group gift previously announced by Love here, follow the trails on the floor toward the Heaven & Hell group gifts. The Heaven & Hell group is also FREE to join. You’ll find a vendor of FREE female Heaven & Hell group gifts to the left and a vendor of FREE male group gifts by Heaven & Hell to the right. Keep following the paths and you’ll come to a wall full of Lucky Letter boards, half of which require the Heaven & Hell group tag to participate, and half are open to everyone. There are male and female gifts in the Lucky Letter boards also. In the center of the Lucky Letter boards are a couple of Midnight Mania boards which also have a male and a female prize. Finally, you’ll also want to take note of the various “special offer” vendors positioned throughout the store. Happy shopping Fab Free! Enjoy all these awesome FREEbies!

The best cure

The best cure

The best cure for the Weekday Blues, in my opinion, is free gifts. Hello, dear readers and welcome to another edition of Edi’s Costume Ideas where I bring to you some hopefully helpful free or under 75L finds for your upcoming Halloween festivities. This episode, so to speak, is rather special as not only is it coming to you during the weekend, but also features an item from one of our Fabulous Designers! This sleek Nurse Betty outfit is brought to you by Brandy’s Boutique and you can get your copy for free just by joining the Fabulously Free in SL inworld group. How do I do that, you ask? Well, it’s easy! All you have to do is copy and paste the following link into local chat in your SL viewer: secondlife:///app/group/020fa7af-444d-f54f-01e2-557ec06315fd/about , hit enter and click on the link. Ta-da! Welcome to the group, now you’re ready to get your gift.

The Nurse Betty outfit consists of a chic, minimalistic body suit that comes in several different clothing layers for the classic avatar. I just love to mix and match as you know and really appreciate the additional layers (jacket, shirt, and tank layer for the top half of the outfit and pants and underwear layer for the bottom half) in case I want to wear anything additional on top of the outfit. There are several different appliers for mesh bodies included in the package as well such as the Belleza, Lena, Maitreya, Omega and Slink appliers. As an added bonus, the cute hat and stethoscope are included in the gift as well.

While there is a pair of red ballet straps contained in the Nurse Betty outfit that was a perfect fit for my Slink high feet, I’ve decided to show you another alternative. The beautiful coral pair of shoes pictured comes from Renegade Footwear and you can get them for free just by slapping the Midnight Mania board at the store. The board as a pretty low target number (25) and there is no group join needed to get in on the contest. In the package is not only shoes for Slink feet but for Belleza, Eve, Maitreya and TMP feet as well. The prize also contains a footbase and hud so that you can fiddle around with the color and look of your new shoes.

Cute accessories are another a weakness of mine and they don’t come any cuter than the aptly named Love Drug from Glutz. I had to resize the thigh straps a little so that it didn’t bite into the skin but lucky for me the Love Drug accessory is unrigged mesh and copayable so I was able to make some backups in case of mistakes. The gift comes with an extensive hud and you can spend hours experimenting and figuring out the perfect color combination. Best of all the Love Drug accessory is completely free. Just head on down to the Glutz main store to get the clue for the Quest Fur Cover Hunt that is running until the 31st of this month. Once you find the prize, buy for 0L.

The best cure headshot

Speaking of hunts did you know that there’s a really interesting one going on at 7 Deadly s{K}ins? I’m always looking for new hunt experiences and enjoy mulling over the clues so the Witch Hunt going on now at 7 Deadly s{K}ins was truly a fun experience. You’ll need to buy a hud for 1L at the front courtyard of the store and from there hunt for bones. Don’t worry the hud will help you keep track of which bones you’ve found and there’s a grand prize to be had as well. The skin I’m wearing in the picture above is one of the hunt prizes and is called Zara and comes in the tone taupe with cleavage and no cleavage options for classic skin. There are also appliers for Slink, Tango, Wowmeh and Phatazz included. I simply love the light dusting of freckles all over the skin’s face and body. The little details are always so spiffy aren’t they? The hunt at 7 Deadly s{K}ins lasts till the end of the month and there are prizes for guys as well so grab a friend and head on down.

Real Men Wear Pink

Real Men Wear Pink

I decided real men wear pink… or at least tie dye. Or Astrid told me so and I ended up in both somehow. Either way, this applier shirt which is pretty fabulous was FREE, courtesy of Corrupted Designs, and it won’t even cost you a group space. All you need to do is slap the Midnight Mania board. It locks down at only 25 slaps, so hurry if you want this shirt. The gift includes both slink and omega appliers (there are no system layers, sorry fellas), and as far as I can tell would work as a unisex top, but is really geared more toward the male audience.

Real Men Wear Pink 2

My bracelet is a FREE to all gift I picked up at Glint Jewelry. This one *is* unisex as there is both a male and female bracelet in the box. No group is needed, just buy the gift for 0L at the main-store. It is being given in remembrance of the victims and survivors at Orlando.

Death Becomes Lady Jezebeth in a Den of Spiders

Death Becomes Lady Jezebeth in a Den of Spiders 1

Morticia: [to Gomez] I’m just like any modern woman trying to have it all. Loving husband, a family. It’s just, I wish I had more time to seek out the dark forces and join their hellish crusade. [Morticia Adamms – Character. The Adamms Family Values 1993.]

Ah yes… nothing like classic old school Gothic horror to make your Halloween delightful. Spiders, cobwebs, long straight hair, and tight fitting red gowns — a Gothic beauty has it all. Friendly smiles just are not for her… not when she has the beautifully grotesque to keep her company!

And the Along Came a Spider Hunt and PurpleMoon came through on this deal (as well as a few other designers) on some sweet surprises to make even Morticia Adamms pause in her pursuit of seeking out the dark forces!

Start with a craw over to Lilith’s Den to pick up their 1L Along Came a Spider Hunt Gift — this Along Came a Lloth Theater Stage building set up. It is a mere 25 prim — all decor included. The candles, pictures, table, and rug are each separate pieces and copy-able so you can mix and match to your heart’s content!

Be sure to also drop by to nab this classic dress from PurpleMoon Creations which is fully mesh in all the standard sizes and includes glove appliers for all your mesh body needs (omega, slink, etc.). I love that this dress can pull off a classic Gothic look, but would also be great for the ballroom, Valentine’s day, or any other formal occasion! You can pick up this classic beauty FREE with your Group membership which is a mere 50L to join but comes with regular gifts that are just as lovely as this one.

Death Becomes Lady Jezebeth in a Den of Spiders 2

Morticia: So… you still desire me after all these years? The old ball and chain?
Gomez: Forever!
Morticia: I’ll get them! [Morticia Adamms – Character. The Adamms Family Values 1993.]

Don’t worry, this fabulous skin and hair combination from Lumae and MINA won’t feel like a ball and chain at all!

I wanted to first give you a close up of the two skins available currently as gifts at Lumae. One is a completely FREE group gift courtesy of Lumae and SL free and offers. Join the SL free and offers group for FREE and pick up the gift from the Lumae main store. This one is pictured above and is called Lumae :: Niska – Varda – Death Becomes Her. The second fabulous Halloween skin is called Lumae :: Niska – Varda – Lady Death V2 and is this month’s FREE group gift from Lumae. This group is also FREE to join and the close up of this skin is pictured below.

If you hop over to the Kustom9 Birthday Celebration, for the sweet birthday price of only 9L you can pick up this great Gothic Hair by Mina called Jezebeth in Blood. It comes with a Halloween pallet of colors ranging from black to white with bloody tips. Above, Astrid is sporting it in black.

Death Becomes Lady Jezebeth in a Den of Spiders 3

Morticia: [confronting Debbie in her house] You have gone too far. You have married Fester, you have destroyed his spirit, you have taken him from us. All that I could forgive. But Debbie…
Debbie Jellinsky: What?
Morticia: …pastels? [Morticia Adamms – Character. The Adamms Family Values 1993.]

No! Not pastels! How terrifyingly unforgivable!

But I did want to give you an idea of how versatile the Jezebeth Bloody Halloween color change hud is. So I’ve shown you another color change in the picture above. It does range down to a white with bloody tips as well. It’s a stunning Halloween hair for any bloody occasion (or Gothic party wear).

Death Becomes Lady Jezebeth in a Den of Spiders 4

Morticia: Wednesday, look at all of the other children, their freckles, their bright little eyes, their eager, friendly smiles. Help them. [Morticia Adamms – Character. The Adamms Family Values 1993.]

And help them we will! With one more fabulous gift! Besom is hosting a simply fantastic Midnight Mania board for a lovely hair called Alder which is well worth grabbing before it is gone. The slap rate is high (650) but with the popularity of the store, I had no problem getting the prize. The board closed early for me the day I went over to give it my slap and I had my hair. You can see that the Gothic curly locks were a great compliment to this gown, and the gift is a fatpack — ALL colors included. It is a Group needed midnight Mania Board, but the group is FREE to join, making this a completely FREE gift and well worth stopping by the store to get. Don’t miss out! And take a few friends with you!

Swaying Into Summer

Snapshot_006

Good evening Fabulouses 😉  Tonight I bring you news of a couple group gifts I picked up at Sway’s and a sweet summer outfit by Entice that I won in a midnight mania board!

You will need to join the Entice inworld group to access the midnight mania board that delivers the free “Like a Prayer” outfit at midnight if it’s locked down, but the group is free – so it won’t hurt!  This outfit includes a pair of belted denim shorts and the colourful blouse you see me lounging about in.

I put this little summery scene together with the Broken & Unbroken Lawn Chair [Flag] Set that I found as a free group gift at Sway’s.  The chairs come in both broken and unbroken versions and each have several relaxing (and falling – lmao) poses.  These chairs are copy if you need to rez more out for friends.  The Cookie Bear is also a free group gift at Sway’s and was sent out last year, but he’s still available and very cute!  This group is 250L to join and there are a few gifts to snag.

My [Quack] Swim Ring that I am about to toss into the pool can be found in a Sway’s instore gacha machine at 50L per play.

Enjoy your evening!
