Flamingo

Flamingo Hello There Fab Free’rs! I know it’s been a minute since I put up a blog post, my apologies for that. Real Life has me on my toes these days. Hopefully I’ll find a bit of calm soon and be able to get back into a regular routine. I miss this! For today I have a few little things to share with you to create a cute everyday warm-weather look.

Starting with the eyes, or shall I say the eye makeup, Slack Girl has out a pretty set of eye makeup as a recent group gift. This pretty gift includes 3 variations of this pretty winged liner with a subtle shadow. The package has a Catwa/Omega applier for Catwa and Omega compatible heads, as well as classic system layers. The SlackGirl group has a one time join fee of 100 linden, however there is a full wall of FREE gifts including this one available to all group members. Don’t forget to wear that tag!

I really love it when designers make demos that are wearable. It really helps you see how an item is going to look, as well as allows you to test a product. The nails and rings Pru has on are a wearable demo from Angel Rock. The rings and nails are all part of the same single attachment, meant to fit Maitreya Lara hands. I found this pretty FREE wearable demo on the Marketplace. The rings are well detailed, and I genuinely like the colors. In the package you’ll find right and left hand attachments to fit several hand sizes, however you must be wearing Maitreya Lara mesh hands as well. You’ll also find a HUD in the package, however it is for demo purposes only. It will allow you to see the possible options of the full product, but it will not make any changes to your rings or nails.

Lastly, how cute is this top from AtiK?! I love the soft overlay floral pattern combined with pretty pink flamingos. This mesh top looks so cute on, and like it would be comfortable on even the most hot humid days. AtiK‘s in-world group is FREE to join, making this lovely group gift FREE as well. In the package you’ll get the mesh top in standard mesh sizes, as well as a matching alpha layer. There is an entire wall of group gifts at the AtiK location, just join the group and pick them up while wearing your group tag.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Noir

I’m still feeling sort of ‘fantasy fantastic’ today… or would that be Fabulous Fantasy?

Noir

Anyway. I found a new to me area that is having a nifty little hunt: The Fall of Man Sim. Kind of a foreboding name but you’ll find all sorts of fun fantasy type shops there and until August 31, a Back to School Hunt! I found this gorgeous black gown and attached cape from Oi Bae! and its the 1L prize for the hunt. This is the ‘Dragon Gown’ and it comes in the standard Mesh sizes XS-XL. The belt is a separate piece and it also comes in XS-XL.

I’m going to steal something Gabriel found while checking out the L’Homme group gifts. The butterflies I’m dancing with today are the free gift from Zibska for the L’Homme readers. “Flurtur Noir” comes with the large ‘orbit’ of black butterflies, plus a smaller orbit from one shoulder. The gift also includes a lovely crown made of black butterflies that I’m not wearing today. The L’Homme group is free to join and you can jo9in from the kiosk in the participating merchants shops.

 

Edited to fix my misspelling the name of the store! Oi indeed… guess I needed another cup of coffee before I blogged😛

Aries

Heyya FabFree!

Aries

It’s Saturday and that means it’s Juli’s Hunt Day!  I’m back on the Women’s Stuff Hunt because, wow, there’s some nifty prizes for this round! My first show-off is from BlueMoon Enterprise which never fails to amaze. This is the ‘Solas’ gown and it’s the free Women’s Stuff Hunt prize. This gorgeous gown comes in Mesh sizes XXS-L and has a good alpha layer. The bow and the gauzy skirts are all a very delicate looking Flexi. Normally, I’m not crazy about Flexi but this is so very well made it just flows and I love it. The gown can be worn without the Flexi pieces for a more modern sleek look as well.

In my wanders around the grid, I stopped in to Blues Hair to see what was new and I was fortunate enough to snag one of the free Lucky Board prizes that perfectly matches with my new gown. This is ‘Aries’ and it includes the fantastic horns you see. The gift comes with a HUD for the horns containing ten natural looking colors. The hair’s HUD also has ten pretty pastel colors that come in ‘roots’ and regular versions. One note, the hair and the horns are one item and they cannot be worn separately.

The Women’s Stuff Hunt runs until August 31 so get out there and hunt! One quick note – Some of the designers in the Women’s Stuff Hunt have placed their prizes for 1L or for 0L… either way you’re going to get a really great gift!🙂

The latest issue of L’Homme Magazine and the related gifts have proven amazing. In case you missed it, Gabriel showed you an amazing FREE shirt from Cold Ash [here]. I was really thrilled when I discovered that no.match was participating again, and this time giving out a full color pack of men’s hair.

This is No Siren for men. The long braid loops over the back, and while the style isn’t for every guy on the grid, it is a quality hair that I know will work for many of you. It is also FREE with your L’Homme Group tag, which is FREE to Join. I’ve included a picture of both the front and back of the hair to give you a full idea of what the hair looks like.

I paired my new hair with a promo from House of Ruby. This Picnic Tank for him in Meadow Check is currently promo priced at 56L and is available only on the Marketplace for now. You will get system layers as well as omega and slink appliers. It’s a nice casual look for the beach or elsewhere and with a pair of cargo shorts, I found the look really worked for me.

Your Friday Hunt Report

WS-Hunt-Logo-Aug-16There are lots of summer hunts going on right now, so if  you’re trying to beat the heat… just stay indoors with the AC cranked up and run around in Second Life! Really… you’ll sweat hardly at all.

If you’re a woman, you’ll want to take a run at the Womenstuff Hunt. This hunt is one of the best, so go grab all the women’s clothing and accessories before they’re gone. There are 150 stores so it may take you a couple of days to finish.

I haven’t checked it out yet, but the Carnival Of Souls Hunt seems very popular. A bit of the macabre as we all gear up for Halloween.

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.

Coffee

Good evening, Fabfree, ( or is it morning…)

coffee

Ethan will happily tell you that I do not function in the morning without coffee. A morning… even one at a lovely beachside cottage without coffee? Unthinkable.  At least I found this comfortable new shirt at Cold Ash for free. This is the ‘Logan’ shirt in plaid and it’s the free gift for L’Homme Magazine readers. This shirt comes in the standard mesh sizes S-L and in a Fitmesh version also S-L. The alpha layer is well made and the shirt itself is so well made you may not even need it.

L’Homme readers will find numerous gifts for this August issue. The group is free to join, simply click the L’Homme sign at any participating shop.

I remain most sincerely yours,
Gabe's Signiture

Master & Mistress of Ceremonies

Master and Mistress of Ceremonies

It’s not Halloween yet, but that is no excuse to avoid good cosplay! Or just good Gothic fun. Loki and I did a little hunting and came up good with a couple of outfits you won’t want to miss out on.

You’re seeing us in Roped Passion’s matching gift for Ladies and Men for the Carnival of Souls Hunt. Just 1L will get you this is the Mistress and Master of Ceremonies outfits. Both come in all the standard mesh sizes and with a good alpha layer (P.S. if you picked up the outfit earlier before the alpha layer was out, you can pick up the alpha layer for free in a box at the front of the store now!).

The lady’s outfit includes this gorgeously detailed corset with roses and skulls, a pair of panties, a bra, and a necklace. You will also get a top hat (not shown).

The men’s outfit is an exquisite suit that comes in one piece for easy fitting and wear. You’ll need your own shoes, but a plain black pair will do nicely.

Ceremonies 2

Love tipped me off on a gift I didn’t want to miss out on, and if you are a LeLutka mesh head wearer, you may want to pick this one up too. The Laura Hurley group is FREE to join, and if you stop by the main-store you can pick up this beautiful LeLutka head applier called “Jojo” for FREE as the current group gift. I fell in love with the beautiful skin tone, the beauty mark on the left side near the mouth/chin and the deep wine colored lips. Since I wear a Maitreya body, I was able to find an applier nearby for 200L and I was set for that one cost, head to toe!

Water Color

I found an art installment that was perfect for my mood today… or rather… it helped me find the mood I wanted to be in. I needed something carefree and pretty and uplifting… all of which are things that this WaterColor Wander sim and the beautiful FREE gifts I found for you today will inspire🙂

WaterColor

EvelineInTheBox is offering a new FREE group gift (the group is FREE to join) that is happy and a bit reminiscent of the flower child era. This Kaley group gift dress comes in all the standard mesh sizes as well as Maitreya, Belleza, and Slink. The black trim is nice touch and I found the perfect jewelry to go with it!

WaterColor 2

Ecco is back and in a new main-store location! And this SL Frees & Offers group gift for August is a welcome back gift (there is also a new VIP group gift out that is wonderful too!) and is yours FREE with your SLF&O tag (which is FREE to join). You get both the necklace and the earrings and the box contains three metal choices: black (shown) as well as silver and gold (not shown). I loved the pairing of this fun set with my flowery dress!
