In the Dark

In the Dark

The end of the month is swiftly approaching and I’m NOT ready! There are still so many Hunts to hunt and freebies to gather and events to go to…  I better just quit whining and get to it! One of the Hunts I love, despite the hair tearing, eye crossing, sneaky little hiding cubes, is the Twisted Hunt. It was actually the first Hunt I ever did way back in the early days. So yeah, I got tossed into the deep end first thing. BUT… The Twisted Hunt, in my opinion, has the best prizes of all the hunts.  And Gabe and I are showing off just a few of those awesome prizes today. But there’s a time crunch… The Hunt ends on the 30th!

Dark Elves

This round’s theme is Drow elves! I’ve always wondered what it’d be like to be one of the Dark elves and doesn’t Gabe look fantastic as a Drow? I’m lovin’ his yummy ears!  Ahem, anyway, our slick new Drow skins are from Jeanette’s Joint. The prize contains four skins for the ladies: Brows and Browless and “explicit” and modest. The guys get two skins – Brows and Browless. The skins are Baked on Mesh and look fantastic.

Rogues

Our new outfits are also Twisted prizes. These are the “Drow Rogue” outfits from Valkyr. The ladies outfit comes with the top, pants and boots while the guys garb is a tunic and pants. Both of the builds are just gorgeous and I foresee these outfits staying in our closets a long time!

The Time Traveler

Time Traveler

Anyone who tells you Time Travel is a science, and not an artform, is a scoundrel. It is and must be both. You need to be able to finesse your way through multiple realities and get the calculations correct. For now, I’m going to slice through the curtain of time and get myself out of this Jurassic nightmare before one of these giant prehistoric lizards decides I might be a delicious meal. Safe travels my fellow voyagers.

The Engine Room 

Purely by happenstance I visited the Engine Room event. Lo and behold, it’s an Anniversary round! You guessed it, that means free gifts. Lots and lots of amazing free gifts. The theme is steampunk and the gifts are free with the Second Life Syndicate group tag. The group is free to join. I got all of them, and would have loved to show all of them to you, but that would just be tedious for everyone. Instead, I put together my Time Traveler look using the Engine Room gifts from Eudora3D, Apricot Paws, Wicca’s Originals, Deadly Nightshade, and Lux Aeterna.

Second Life Syndicate group: secondlife:///app/group/d35c55f4-6a4f-eb2d-1dae-af9665f6f4cd/about

Eudora3D

I think this hat from Eudora3D is possibly one of the coolest hats I’ve ever owned, and it’s absolutely free. The Witch Hunter hat is incredibly detailed. It comes with a hud that lets you change the metal parts gold or silver, and adjust the position and size of the hat. You’ll find this freebie waiting for you at the Engine Room event. Don’t forget the Second Life Syndicate tag.

Apricot Paws

My very Victorian-like blouse by Apricot Paws is also free at the Engine Room. It fits beautifully and I love the subtle pinstripes. This shirt comes in a tucked and a not tucked version for multiple wear options. This gift also has a hud that lets you adjust the color of the bow, the buttons, and metal bits.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Maitreya V-Tech, MeshBody Legacy, MeshBody Legacy Perky

Wicca’s Originals

The Havoc Mask is the free Engine Room Anniversary gift by Wicca’s Originals. This super cool accessory is unisex in that it comes in a male sizes as well as a female size. The details are awesome, and it fit me perfectly, however there are resize scripts in the masks.

Deadly Nightshade

I think this clockwork mechanism halo piece by Deadly Nightshade is so cool. Not only does it look cool with all the great details, it also has moving parts. The pieces attach separately so that they move independent of each other. That also means they can be worn all together or separately. This free Engine Room gift was the initial inspiration for creating a Time Traveling character.

Lux Aeterna

The golden scalpel and scissors by Lux Aeterna together are the first Engine Room gift I unpacked and knew I had to do something with them. They are gorgeous aesthetically, and have a macabre element that I really like. They also have these really awesome bento hold poses, that are just icing on the cake. You’ll find them for free at the Engine Room. Again, don’t forget to join the free Second Life Syndicate group and wear the group tag to get the gifts.

Prepping for Halloween

Prepping for Halloween
Are any of your excited for Halloween? It is my favourite holiday, but it’s always more fun on SL in my humble opinion. I got some amazing jewelry that reminded me of Halloween and an amazing dress on the fall Twisted Hunt, as well as a great pose from the Pose Fair event.

Twisted Hunt- Drow

Pru recently showed some of the amazing prizes you can get from the fall Twisted Hunt, and I’m showing off a couple more today.
The Twisted Hunt is always really tricky and fun at the same time. You are looking for the little cubes with prizes in them at each hunt location, but watch out for the decoys! The main hunt ends on September 31st, and endgame is available to play until October 17th (a game/hunt at the end of the grid-wide hunt where you win lots of prizes if you complete the challenging puzzles and quests). Have fun on the hunt! All prizes on the hunt are free.

the.best.dress.

I am in love with this dress by Ari-Pari. It comes with a colour hud of a variety if colours and it is very versatile. It is their free twisted hunt prize, available until September 31st.

Sizes Included

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

Halloween Jewels!

Some other prizes I absolutely loved from this round of Twisted are several free hunt prizes at Moondance Boutique. There is a whole jewelery set available, so you are looking for several hunt prizes here. Just click the little Twisted hunt easle at the store to get the details about all the prizes hidden here. I am showing off the earrings, necklace and rings and there is also two colour huds available as prizes to change the colours of the jewelery set.

Hopscotch @ the Pose Fair

We have seen quite a lot of posts this month about the Pose Fair, and today I am showing the free gift by HopScotch. This round of Pose Fair ends on September 28th, so get over there quickly.

Thanks for reading, Fab Free!

No Time

No Time

I received very sad news today, FabFree. The Stay at Home Club is closing it’s doors as of September 25. I will be very sorry to see them go. I certainly got used to picking up all the great free gifts. But… all good things come to an end, I suppose.

No Time

I am glad I had time to pick up these great cargo pants from FurtaCor. These are the ‘Owen’ pants and while the Club is still open, you can get them for free. The pants come with a HUD to choose one of fifteen colors and patterns. As with everything I’ve seen from FurtaCor, these are a great build right down to the details. I would suggest, however, that you don’t wait around to grab these before the Stay at Home Club is just a fond memory.

Sizes Included

  • Aesthetic
  • Altamura
  • Signature – Gianni
  • SLink

One quick note, you may see that there is no Belleza Jake size. I have discovered that Altamura fits Jake rather well. Good to know.

Mystic

Mystic

*Leaps back onto the Blog with a spray of glitter and a burst of pumpkin spice** I’m back, Fab Folks! Hah, y’all didn’t think you’d get rid of me that easily, did ya? Mister Juli and I had a wonderful break together and now I’m ready to blog all the fabulous Fall that the Grid has to offer.

Mystical

I guess I’m eagerly anticipating Halloween ’cause when I saw this gorgeous witch’s robe from Kitty Creations, I had to have it. This is the Mystical Night robe and the Aelvabeth hair add on. This lovely robe can be yours for free and a little hunting for the Renaissance Hunt. There is also a great outfit for our gentlemen in the same prize item. The hair add on makes the hood easy to wear without going “bald”. That HUD has eight natural colors to choose from.

The Renaissance Hunt and Faire run until 27 September so you’ve got time to hunt down all the goodies.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique

My New Bumbly Friend

Coming Soon to Fab Free

Hey Fab Free! Aline recently posted about the end of the Stay at Home Club event. This event was incredible, and I am so thankful to the organizers of the event and to the participating designers for all of the free gifts we have been given in the last few months. Today I will be showing you one of the amazing new and final gifts from the Stay at Home Club by Astara, and how to get this adorable sweater by Mooh!, all for under ten linden.

The Last Goodies at the Stay at Home Club

I am showing one of the last free gifts from the Stay at Home Club, which is this pet called Bumbly friend by Astara. It’s such a cute pet, and it comes in three versions. One sits on your head, another rests on your shoulder and the third one is holdable. As soon as I saw the ad for this little cutie I knew I had to have it. It’s so cute!

Astara has a bunch of other free Stay at Home club gifts out at the store right now as well. Astara is a wonderful designer, and the gifts there are just incredible. The club is ending on September 25th, so make sure you check out all of the gifts still available on their gifts webpage before that date, as the club and the gifts will no longer be available after the 25th. The types of gifts available range from home decor, men and women’s apparel, skins, shapes, makeup, accessories, and much more! There will be something for everyone, so take advantage of this amazing event while you still can.

Isla

This sweater is from Mooh!, and it is their new teleport hub group gift. Simply join the Teleport hub group for 10 L and the sweater is yours. The sweater come with an extensive colour hud. This sweater is cozy and perfect for the upcoming fall season.

Thanks for reading, Fab Free!
