Proper Pinup


Seaside PinUp

Welcome to the blog Fab Free! It was a warm bright sunny day for me in Second Life today, and I felt every bit a proper pinup girl at the beach. To get the look I had some help from a few of the many free gifts in the shopping regions of the Second Life 16th Birthday event. I picked up what felt like a metric ton of freebies, however for this post I want to share with you the SL16B gifts by Narcisse, ICONIC, and Pyscho Byts.

First, the bright red polka dotted monokini is the SL16B gift by Narcisse. It comes in this single color, and is fit for Maitreya Lara only. To get yours, all you need to do is head over to the Narcisse shop in the SL16B Aurelian region and pick it up for free.

Next up, the long side swept hairstyle is the free SL16B gift by ICONIC. It comes in a fatpack of colors, and has a style hud that lets you flip the hair so it’s either over the left shoulder or the right. You’ll find it waiting for free at the ICONIC shop in SL16B’s Tinseled Region.

Finally, the reason for the trio of photos is to show you 3 of the 6 static poses in the “Lili” pose set by Psycho Byts. Each of the six poses is in what I would call a pinup style. The set has individual poses, and a pose hud. This set is one of 2 free gift pose sets by Psycho Byts just waiting to be picked up at SL1B’s Golden region.

Thanks for reading, here are the details:

Hair – ICONIC:STEPHANIE::TOTAL STYLER – Free Gift @SL16B Tinseled
Head – Catwa – Koura

Dolphin Swim

Hi There Fab Free’rs! I hope everyone survived Monday without too much trouble. For this post I’ve come across two amazing freebies that I’m excited I get to share with you. First, how cool is this free dolphin pose by Fashiowl?! It’s part of their Tres Chic Anniversary gift. Next, the cool bikini Pru is wearing is a free group gift at Ewa Boutique. Keep reading for all the “how and where” for these fabulous finds.

As I was looking through the many gifts at the current round of Tres Chic, I was so excited to unpack this free gift by Fashiowl. This freebie is a complete set of poses with this adorable dolphin. The gift includes 7 individual poses alone, and pre-loaded into the dolphin so you can rez it and pose with it easily. The dolphin’s menu will even allow you to adjust the pose. To get this super cool gift you’ll need the Tres Chic group tag, however the group is free to join.

The bikini Pru has on is another fantastic freebie. I love the buckles that give this black bikini a belted look. You can get your copy of this cute little swimsuit at Ewa Boutique. It’s on the second floor of the shop with quite a few other group gifts. The Ewa Boutique group is free to join as well.

Pleasure comes in all disguises

Pleasure comes in all disguises

Hi there. I was just admiring my new shoes. Aren’t they great? I’ve got some other things to tell you about too. Two of them are free with no group join or anything required, and the last is a free gift for a free group!

The pose sets the mood

Poses are too often overlooked and always very important. I’ll stay off of my soap box for now, but it’s a sentiment that I’ve expressed before and I think it’s extra true in this case. The [west end] mainstore has moved, so to celebrate there is a free pack of poses out in the new store. They’re all cool, movement filled poses like this one. It includes 6 poses – 3 separate poses and their mirrors and will only be out for a very limited time.

But the shoes matter too

These shoes are a free gift at Ricielli at the Cosmopolitan location and they can be yours just for showing up. There is a gift bag at the store up on a shelf. Click the bag, buy it for 0L, and watch the magic happen…the magic being free shoes with no strings attached. They come in sizes for:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique

Okay, the whole mess is important

Obviously, the undies I’m wearing are important too for modesty reasons…if I can even use the word modesty in a description of this particular picture. I got the ones that I’m wearing here from Elegance Boutique. They come with a color HUD so you can make them match pretty much anything that your heart desires, along with a few pattern options if you’re feeling sassy. To get them, I just joined the free Elegance Boutique group and than click on the vendor at the Cosmopolitan location to get my free gift. In addition to the HUD, it includes the panties sized for:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis & Venus
  • Miatreya
  • Slink Hourglass & Physique

 

Allison is wearing…

Mesh Body: Maitreya Lara
Mesh Head: Catwa Magy
Skin Applier: Deetalez Snjezana
Eyes: Avi-Glam Reverie Eyes
Eyelashes Applier: Pout!

My back’s against the wall

My back's against the wall

Hi there! I’ve put together some pretty things to show you. I hope you like them!

Most literal title ever

There is a new free group gift at Ana Boutique, and it is a set of 3 poses designed to be used leaning up against a wall. They’re really fantastic. If you want to lean up against some walls too (and why wouldn’t you?), you’ll just need to join the free Ana Boutique group. You’ll find this pose pack and a few other free gifts on the wall above the stairs.

Hair, hair everywhere

I think that the thing that I buy the most of in SL is hair. Like, as soon as we finish up here I’m probably going to hit up the Saturday sale, where I will undoubtedly find some hair that I need and can’t live without. But when they’re on sale or free, it so hard to say no. This specific hair was FREE and it’s really cute. If that’s wrong then I don’t want to be right! I picked it up at Ayashi. There are two groups there, a free group and a paid group. This hair is a gift for the free group. Hopefully my slurl there takes you right where you need to go, but if it doesn’t there is a teleport board straight ahead when you walk into the store. Just choose Gift Room and you’ll see this pack and a few others on the wall. The super cute ‘do that I’m wearing here comes as a fatpack. I love the straight bangs and how the front is pulled back. It’s short and sassy and perfect.

The longest day has just begun

The longest day has just begun

Hi there! I went shopping at Cosmopolitan and found presents! And I paired them with a pretty FabFree gift to show off a whole bunch of free! Nothing wrong with that. And then I decided to hang out by some stairs. That’s totally logical, right? And of course I threw in a nonsensical title and a bunch of sentence fragments. So pretty much nothing new for me. I’m sure that the run on sentences will be along shortly, don’t you worry!

Everything Cosmopolitan 

After the billions of free gifts at the last round of Cosmopolitan, I wasn’t expecting anything when I heading over to do some light window shopping and demoing. But I was pleasantly surprised! There is an easel on either side of the door and each displays a free group gift. You’ll need to join the free group (there’s a group joiner right under each gift) to get them. On one side is this lovely free dress from Miimikri. I love the lace detail on the top and the pretty ruffles. It comes in this pretty soft color and in sizes for Maitreya, Slink Hourglass, and Slink Physique. The gift on the other side is a pack of free poses from Nina Rosario! I love me some poses and this pack of five of them is really nice.

Shiny Things

Every time I peruse the FabFree group gift listing I’m amazed by all of the awesome things on it. Today I picked up this pretty free jewelry set from Beloved Jewelry. It includes the necklace as well as earrings. You can only see a little bit of one of the earrings peaking out of my hair, but it’s literally the bottom of the necklace (the biggest circle and the tassel) in earring form. Head over to the store and you’ll see what I’m badly describing. Just active your Fabulously Free in SL group tag (or join for free if you’re not already in the group) and give the vendor a click.

Fab Free Designer Friday -12/15/2017 – HelaMiyo

HelaMiyo
Happy Fri-Yay Fab Free! I’m glad you’re here because this week the Designer Friday post is all about HelaMiyo. Generally HelaMiyo is probably best known for their static poses. The shop also has hand fans complete with poses, couples poses, eyes, and hairstyles. Yes, you read that right hair. The HelaMiyo hairstyles are very stylized, much like a lot of their static poses. Most notably there are period hairstyles, which are great for costumes, role-play, and photographs. Speaking of photographs, at the landing point for HelaMiyo, you’ll find a room with a public photo studio that is FREE for everyone to utilize.
HelaMiyo Gifts & Info
In the room with the public photo studio you’ll find several FREE or dollarbie poses for purchase. There is also a pose stand with poses that are also available as gifts in the center of the HelaMiyo store. This photo studio room at HelaMiyo is also where you’ll find the group gifts, and store info. The HelaMiyo group is FREE to join. Additionally, there are two gifts for other groups, one of which is the Fabulously Free in SL exclusive group gift. Carson showed this gift in his post “Whatever.” If you’re not already a member of the Fabulously Free in SL group, you should be! The Fab Free group is always FREE to join.

As you browse the HelaMiyo store, you’ll wanna check out the table in the room with the hairstyles. There are a few dollarbies to be had. Another spot to be sure and stop by is the sunken lounge area. This is where you’ll find a few HelaMiyo group Lucky Letter boards. Don’t miss these awesome freebies! Enjoy your weekend Fab Free.

Fab Free Designer Friday – 08/18/2017 – Frimon Store

Frimon Store
Happy Saturday Fab Free! I know this is a day late, let me just say it was a long week for this blogger, and I’m so glad for the weekend. I’m positive that the day being Saturday rather than Friday doesn’t make this weeks Designer of the week any less awesome. Frimon Store is this weeks designer. If you’re looking for sweet couples poses, fun poses for your friends, or even cool individual poses, you definitely need to go to Frimon Store.  Many of the poses even include props! Not to mention there are several opportunities for some FREE gifts. This wouldn’t be the Fab Free blog after all without some freebies! I also think it’s important to mention that the Frimon Store is set up in a very serene but minimal setting, which I think is ideal for shopping. There is an outdoor courtyard area that has all the general “wall of information” type things including associated groups and an online indicator for the shop owner/creator.
Frimon Store Gifts
Now back to those FREEbies! At the center of the store there is a big wall of Frimon Store group gifts and additional group gifts for members of other groups. The Frimon Store group is FREE to join, so there’s no cost to get the Frimon Store group gift. This is also where you’ll find the exclusive Fab Free group gift. Don’t forget to wear your Fabulously Free in SL group tag! If you’re not already a member the Fab Free group is always FREE to join. The Fab Free gift at Frimon Store is the last one on the right. You may recall this fun couples pose from Carson’s post “Taking the Plunge.” Whether you’re a professional photographer, a blogger, or you’re taking snaps with your friends, you don’t want to miss out on these awesome poses. Happy Shopping!

Moon Child

Lunar Obsession
If you haven’t been by The Coven Lunar Festival yet, you should go if for no other reason than to enjoy the delightfully spook atmosphere, and oh yeah, tons of FREE gifts! There is some stellar shopping available as well, but this is a FREEbie blog, so I’ll try to stay focused. lol At the landing point for The Coven you’ll see a group joiner, you’ll want to join the FREE group for The Coven so you can snag all the free witchy goth goodness. Once you’re wearing The Coven group tag, you can click on the little cauldrons with glowing purple contents at each of the participating vendor booths. I picked up quite a few gifts, and it was hard to narrow things down to a few favorites. The gifts range from clothing and accessories to decor.

Boho Suit

The sexy mono-kini is a The Coven event group gift from Nightmare. This mesh swimwear fits like a glove, and has a truly unique style in the back. You’ll have to pick this FREE gift up for yourself to see what I mean. I think it’s cute on it’s own, however it would also look cute with a pair of shorts or a long skirt.

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

Chloe

I love this long hairstyle by Vallani. Named Chloe, the hairstyle is Vallani’s FREE gift at The Coven Lunar Festival. This gift includes the single hairstyle with a color change hud. There are quite a few color options including mostly “natural” red, white, blond, brunette, and black variations. There is a highlight texture, and a soft texture option for each of the colors. The one thing that makes this hud a bit different from most is there is a tinting option that allows you to pick a hair color then tint it any color you want. The possibilities are endless!

The Cyanide Mini Series

The pose used in the above photo is part of the gift at The Coven event by An Lar. This static pose is part of a set called the Cyanide Mini Series which comes with three individual poses and their mirrors for six total static poses. As a blogger and a photographer I am always excited about awesome FREE pose gifts! This particular pose is the second in the series, and my favorite of the three.
Moon Child

Onyx

This thin collar with the starburst dangle is the FREE gift at The Coven event from Kibitz. With this gift you’ll receive the choker/collar in black with the choice of either an onyx (shown), silver, or gold charm. There are no scripts in this jewelry, however it can be sized manually. It also has the added detail of a chain clasp in the back.

Moon Tie

Maybe it’s just me but I think mouthies might be making a comeback in Second Life. This cute FREE gift at The Coven Lunar Festival is by Peaches. There are a few variations of this thin ribbon with dangling moons included in this gift. You can choose either a black ribbon with silver moons or gold moons, or a white ribbon with silver or gold moons.

Moon & Star Bindi

Oubliette put out this cute crescent moon and star bindi as their FREE gift at The Coven Lunar Festival. I love how delicate it looks. This simple yet pretty bindi has no scripts or huds, however you can adjust the size and color manually using the edit menu. Should you choose to edit this yourself, I highly suggest making a copy of it first just in case!

Here are all the details, Enjoy!

RUFFLES!

Ruffles_001

I think Friday is my new lucky day! I hopped onto SL this morning and my inbox was full of notices of all kinds of new group gifts and a 50 Linden Friday special that I knew I had to have! I was so excited to put this look together for you that I could hardly wait to post it!

New pants!

Pure Poison usually puts out shoes as their group gifts, but this time around they set out a free gorgeous pair of black ruffle front shorts! As always, the group is free to join. I fell in love with these at first sight and actually made the rest of my outfit around this signature piece! When you open your gift package, you’ll find that the Haley shorts come in the following sizes:

  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Some browsing…

I did some browsing for the perfect shirt to go with my new shorts, and was in luck when I came across this beautiful Summer Color ruffled top by Toxic Bish. It is a free group gift and the group is free to join. I am showing it off in black in the picture above, but it comes with a texture hud that includes 11 colors and sizes to fit all the popular mesh body types.

Colors you get with this top:

  • White
  • Mauve
  • Brown
  • Hot Pink
  • Salmon
  • Red
  • Yellow
  • Orange
  • Blue
  • Mint
  • Black (shown)

50 Linden Friday!

It’s Friday! Yay! The start of the weekend and special shopping deals! I stopped by Exile and picked up this beautiful hairstyle called “Run the World” in a pack of naturals (they also have out a separate pack of pastels for 50L too). It’s really pretty and I love the bangs! It’s a great and versatile hairstyle, perfect for many occasions.

Strike a pose!

I noticed oOo Studio Poses on my 50 Linden Friday list and decided to stop by there for a look. While I didn’t end up using the 50L pose for my picture today, I discovered that there were two free to all gifts sitting on the counter. You can buy the “My Life” pose used in this picture for just 0L, no group needed. It’s great for those of you into Second Life photography. The second pose out on the counter was a reclining pose, and was just as nice!
