Hope

Hello FabFree Folks!

Hope

I’ve got a lovely new-to-me designer to share with y’all today. This is the latest Group Gift from Rebel Hope Designs. I just love finding new designers, especially when their work is so well done. Like this cute dress: Amy.  Amy comes in the standard Mesh sizes XXS-L and a whole plethora of appliers -> Maitreya, and the SLink Physique + Hourglass, as well as Belleza’s Isis, Freya and Venus.  The HUD allows for ten color changes and four metals. I could go on and on about the great details all over this dress.. even on the back. But I’ll show it off instead.

Hope (Back detail)

I can see this becoming a staple in my closet!  The best news… Rebel Hope Designs group is free to join!

Keeping it Lowkey

Tunic Hello Hello Fab Free’rs Thanks for stopping by! Today I have what I think is a super cute look inspired by this gorgeous paisley tunic from Lowkey Shawty I stumbled across on the Marketplace. It also includes today’s Fifty Linden Friday offer from REIGN, so I want to make this post short and sweet. Additionally there’s a new event in Second Life called Addicted to Black. The name of the event makes the theme pretty self explanatory. My goth side is squealing with delight over this event. I stopped by and was happy to find a few FREE gifts, a necklace from Indulge Temptation, and a piercing from CS Tattoo.
Tunic Close I sincerely love this tunic from Lowkey Shawty. Paisleys are a guilty pleasure of mine, and it’s not often you see a good paisley pattern. I love the colors of this top, it’s bright and beautiful without being garish. It’s also long enough that you could wear it without the leggings, and honestly it would be just as cute with shorts or a skirt. The tunic is just 10 lindens on the Marketplace, and you’ll get several mesh sizes.

The shoes, the shoes, I love these platforms too, they kind of make the outfit. These platform sandals are today’s Fifty Linden Friday offer at REIGN. The shoes are just 50 lindens for today only. In the package you’ll get a different fit for Slink, Maitreya, Belleza, and TMP feet, along with a color change hud with 20 color options.

Speaking of gorgeous, my photo really doesn’t do this roped bead necklace from Indulge Temptation justice. These black seed beads have an iridescent quality. The set I am wearing appears to reflect a pretty red hue from the black beads. This FREE gift at Addicted to Black also includes 2 other versions of this necklace, one with a blue hue, and one with a regular white light hue.

Also FREE at the Addicted to Black event is this horseshoe lip piercing from CS Tattoo. Sometimes I really like just a simple piercing rather than some of the more intense ones that are often seen in Second Life. This black metal piercing can be sized via touch menu. I also want to note, that the piercing did not fit my avatar initially. I think it’s intended to be unisex. However, I had no trouble re-positioning it and using the touch menu to size it down a little.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Your Friday Hunt Report

HUNT SL Surf Into Summer HuntThere are some good hunts going on right now, which begs the question… why aren’t you out hunting!? LOL.

Are you into fantasy? There are some nice fantasy hunts happening. Check out the Enchanted Fairy Tale Hunt, the Mystery Fantasy Hunt, and Nightmares & Fairy Tales if you like that sort of thing.

As usual, there are some great things to be picked up at The Free Dove. There are three different free store hunts running there from various designers. Check them out!

There are plenty of other hunts to choose from. Do them all and your inventory will be bulging. But most importantly… have fun.

You say you’re new to hunting? Need help learning the ropes?
Both FabFree and HUNT SL have pages full of tips to help you get going. I recommend them to novice and veteran hunters alike.

This Rogue

This Rogue

Now’s the time to add a few manly staples to your wardrobe if you’re a guy in Second life. Astrid and I have shown you gifts from Wicca’s Wardrobe a few times… so hopefully you have the group tag handy. If not, join up for 50L, it’s well worth the fee. Then stop by the main-store and pick up the latest group gift — these Rogue Jeans. You can get them in the male pair that I’m sporting above (it comes in all the standard sizes plus a fitmesh size) or there is a female version also out for the ladies.

If this gift doesn’t convince you to join Wicca’s Wardrobe group, consider the frequent gifts given, plus the plentiful past gifts still out for you to pick up and enjoy.

I added a touch of ‘macho’ to this outfit with a FREE harness from Gabriel, which they have set out as a L’Homme Magazine Group gift. This group is FREE to join, making this gift totally FREE. The harness is mesh and comes in three fits: one for a regular avatar, a Slink fit, and a TMP fit.

Not Your Typical Tinkerbell

In lore… the fairies were not people you messed with. Ever heard the saying “Don’t piss off the fairies.”? There was a reason! They were considered sinister, powerful… they were not your typical Tinkerbells of today’s movie making, that is for sure!

Not Your Typical Tinkerbell

When I came across the amazing FREE group gift (the group is FREE to join) by PixyStix for this month… I knew I was ready to put together a sinister winged faery of lore! This gift is incredibly generous, coming in not one… but five different tones, as well as so many different appliers that you will be able to apply to your heart’s content to just about anything. There are body appliers, soul uni ear appliers, butt appliers, boob appliers and head appliers too. You simply can’t go wrong with this fantasy skin! I included the advertisement below to show you the other shades (besides the blue that I’m sporting above) that are included in this wonderful gift.

Of course every sinister faery needs attire and wings. And I found a pretty (and inexpensive) in-store gacha at Sweet Lies that fit the bill. For just 30L per spin, I was able to pick up a fitmesh dress, a bracer/legwrap combo and a set of matching wings. I’ll admit, the Tinkerbell Gacha was addictive… and there is certainly nothing typical about the quality of these items. They are gorgeous! Get your gacha on at Sweet Lies!

This FREE lingerie set is gorgeous on, not to mention the blue color is everything. Included with the set are appliers for Lolas Tango, Belleza, Slink Physique, Maitreya, TMP, and Omega, as well as classic system layers.

As a final touch, these lovely lipsticks are from Lumae. The FREE Enchantment Hunt prize from Lumae includes Lelutka, Omega, and TMP appliers, as well as classic makeup layers in 12 pretty colors.

An Enchanting Blue Fairy

The Blue Fairy

Hello There Fab Free’rs! I hope all is well in your world. Right now my world is made up of fantastic fairy fabulousness thanks to the Enchantment Hunt. The May round of Enchantment is Thumbelina themed, and the shops participating in the Hunt part of the event are making all my fairy dreams come true! Even better, the Hunt gifts are all absolutely FREE. Additionally, Plastik recently sent out this gorgeous fantasy skin with male and female options and all the appliers for all the meshy things you could possibly imagine (okay most of them) as a FREE gift to their VIP group. You’re gonna want this one! Also, at the very end of the post I have a little something from Catwa that I want to tell you about. I bet you can guess what it is!

First, if you’ve never done an Enchantment Hunt before, this is a hud hunt. You can pick up a FREE hud at the Enchantment Event or at any of the participating shops. Once you attach the hud you’ll be asked to give it permission to teleport your avatar. Say yes! Then click on a shop logo to be instantly teleported to that location. You’ll also get a hunt hint in your local chat. You must be wearing the hud when you find the hunt object (an open book) and click it. The Enchantment Hunt object will not send you the gift without the Enchantment Hunt hud attached.Blue Fairy Close Since there are so many lovely Enchantment Hunt Freebies, I’ll start from the top. This crown of dainty, highly detailed hair flowers from NSP Florals is simply beautiful. This FREE hunt gift is sizable and can be easily positioned. Not to mention that hair flowers are an essential part of a fairy’s wardrobe, so you won’t want to miss these!

No fairy would be complete without a set of pretty gossamer wings! These delicate wings are the FREE Enchantment Hunt prize at Le Poppycock. The wings are static, and include several color versions, each in an open or closed position.

Next, this lace one-piece lingerie is the FREE Enchantment Hunt Prize at Blacklace. Blacklace is known for their beautiful lingerie, and this gift is no exception. Not only is this gift beautiful, it generously includes appliers for omega compatible bodies as well as classic system layers in several equally pretty colors.

The next to last stop on the Enchantment Hunt for this post is Essenz. These mint colored strappy flats are just too cute! These are easily the perfect fair footwear. This FREE hunt prize includes a Maitreya fit, and a Slink Flat fit. All fairy-ness aside, these sandals are a great addition to any summer wardrobe.

Finally, how cute is the pose used in the top photo? I love the whimsical look of the stance. This is one of 3 poses that are the Enchantment Hunt prize at Elephante Poses. Each of the 3 static poses have the same whimsical fairy quality to them. You’ll definitely want to add these FREE poses to your collection!

Now that I have shared a small sample of the Enchantment Hunt gifts to be had (I’ll show more in my next post), I want to talk about this incredible skin. Just recently Plastik gained 1000 Facebook likes/followers and to show her appreciation, the designer sent out this skin to her VIP group. This FREE gift comes in a male and female version and includes classic system layers along with appliers for every mesh body part you might imagine. I love the added detail of the almost iridescent looking stripes. They really give this skin an otherworldly look. In addition to the applier options, you also have the choice of freckles or no freckles.  At this time The Plastik group is FREE to join, and you’ll find this awesomely generous gift in the past group notices.

Lastly, I know this has been an unusually long post for me, but I have one more thing I want to share with you. Catwa has just released a static mesh head called Nicki, and it is for sale now for just 100 lindens. Yes, this is above and beyond the 75 lindens we usually stick to, however if you’re a Catwa group member you will get 30 lindens in store credit for purchasing the head. This brings that 100 linden cost to just 70 lindens in a round about way. Aside from being static (no blinking, no facial expressions) this pretty face has all the same functions as any other Catwa mesh head. Currently the Catwa group is FREE to join, so don’t forget to join the group and wear your group tag to get the store credit when purchasing the Nicki head.

Here are the Details, Enjoy!

No Harm Done

No Harm Done

I decided to go shirtless for a cause today… to show off some excellent group gifts. If you’re a fan of high quality tattoos in Second Life, you know that finding good ink with all the proper layers at a reasonable cost can sometimes be a challenge. I ran into a new-to-me store that is offering group gifts that you won’t want to miss out on.

If you stop by Suicide Gurls main-store, you can join the group for 150L. This will give you access to a total of five group gifts, as the monthly group gifts for January through May are all set out for customers to enjoy. Each of these tattoos are unisex and come in a full range of appliers, including Omega, Slink, TMP, Maitreya, and Belleza, as well as a system layer for system avatars. So your one time fee for the group join pays for itself easily right away. I’m showing you the April gift called “Dagni” in the photo above. The gifts vary widely each month in style… but one thing doesn’t vary… quality. They are all top quality tattoos.

To add to my rugged look, I picked up the FREE L’Homme Magazine Group Gift being offered by No.Match at their mainstore. This group is FREE to join and means you’ll have access to numerous FREE gifts for men at a variety of stores all over the grid. No.Match is generously offering this chin goatie called “No Harm”. I thought it fit the feel of today’s look.
