The Queen in Her Kingdom

Coming soon

There’s only two days left of Fantasy Faire, and I poked around the various regions of the event to look for gifts. There are some out, but they are a bit tricky to find. One I found was this free animated golden flower, which I thought was gorgeous. The item is made by Gabriel, and it includes the hand pose and light orbs that float above it. You will find it for free near the landing of the Tenpayo region here. It all ends on May 18th, so go soon!

Queen Natalia

Coming soon

Now it’s time for the feature of my post today, which is this beautiful “Natalia” skin for Lelutka EvoX heads. This is a free gift from ItGirls. I am wearing the skin in “Rose”, but it comes in a fatpack of other dark and light natural shades. Each shade also includes the lovely dark eyebrows.

For this particular EvoX skin, you will need to own a Lelutka Evolution head. All previous Lelutka Evolution heads have been updated to EvoX, so be sure to click the update button in your head folder if you haven’t had the time or interest in updating yet. EvoX is a bit of a learning curve, but I recommend it because the skins are fabulous! Once you have your EvoX head, just click the “EvoX” button on the HUD to put your head in EvoX mode, which allows you to use more detailed skin and makeup options.

Once this is all done, you will notice that with the free skin from ItGirls, that the ears and face skins are separated. You need to wear a separate tattoo for the ears. So you then need to find the matching ear skin to go with the face skin. All of the face skins and ear skins are included in the free gift from ItGirls. You can also get a pack of free EvoX ear skins, which is available for all to get on the front desk at ItGirls.

Sizes Included (ItGirls skin & ear skins)

  • Lelutka EvoX

What about that sneaky neckline?

I’m sure some of you have noticed that nasty neckline that can pop up when you wear an EvoX head skin that doesn’t include a body skin. Not to fear, for Velour is here. Velour has a package of free ear skins and neck fixes for EvoX heads. To get the package, look on the front desk to get the pack for free. No group join is needed. The neck fixes work perfectly to blend the ItGirls skin with another body skin. I am currently wearing a body skin from a different creator entirely, one of 7 Deadly S[K]ins‘ BOM skins in the Caramel tone, and it blends so smoothly! These neck fixes should work with any companies that use Velour tones in their head skins and you should have few problems wearing the head skins with a different body skin.

Sizes Included (Velour neck fixes and ear skins)

  • Lelutka EvoX

Well, that wasn’t complicated at all! 😉 If you have any questions about EvoX skins feel free to post your queries in the comments.

I said find it, find it, go on and take it if you love it

I said find it, find it, go on and take it if you love it

Good afternoon, Fab Readers. Julianna has been so busy building the “New Kids”, I’ve had to step in to help her find men’s wear on Grid. One of my old favorite designers has opened a new “shop” and I was thrilled to tell her and now the blog readers about it. (And to get Alistar some proper clothing.)

Gabriel has opened a new little shop next door to the main shop called “Free Bees”. And as you might guess all the items inside are 100% free. To everyone, no group needed. I had to stop from grabbing everything in one wild frenzy. But then I thought, “It’s free… why not?” 

Like this “Slim Pants Suit” in black and white. But this striking suit isn’t the only one. There are three black and white styles in the box. As well as the three designs on just the shirt and jacket and the three designs on a complete set… plus the complete set with both shorter and longer pants. Everything you need all for zero lindens.

Of course, Gabriel still has the large 50% off section and the 1L section in the main store. So you could literally fill your closet for a handful of lindens. And look smashing doing it.

Sizes Included

  • one size + full alpha

Grandma’s been staring through the window ever since it started to snow…
If it gets any worse I’ll have to let her in.

Hey Gang!

Yeah I’m starting off with a bad snow joke, and that’s snow joke!  So Jacx was talking about a snowball fight the other day in her post and I’ve decided to take her up on her offer.  I’m not sure she knows what she has gotten herself into though.  I am *very* competitive!  I also have the same set of poses from Fashiowl from Shop & Hop (free), so I am armed and ready to go too!  (I can’t throw snowballs without arms, you know!)

I’ve put together an eclectic combo of an outfit for the fight, me and cold aren’t the best of buddies (despite my Elsa obsession!), and so whatever I can throw together that keeps me warmest, gosh-darnit, that’s what I’m gonna wear when it’s cold!

Freebies, Freebies and More Freebies! (and maybe a couple of great deals for good measure!)

I’m sure most of you are familiar with the free mesh heads from Lelutka this past week, I have the *worst* luck trying to get into crowded places like that and I feel like I am always the last to grab anything that there is a big rush for.  Nonetheless, I am sporting the brand spankin’ new Kaya head which is a free group gift (free group join) from Lelutka.  (There’s one for the guys as well!)  My skin is also a freebie, it is a group gift from Koonz.  Their group is free to join.

Usually I use my own shape, but I really liked the free shape for Kaya by Wren’s Nest.  It is a free group gift and the group is temporarily free to join.  Her shapes are really nice.

This awesome Santa style jacket is from Gabriel and you can get it for men and women both at their store for only 50L.  It’s super warm for snowball fights too!  For women this fits Maitreya and Legacy.  It does come with the option of a shirt underneath too.

I am absolutely enamored with my fluffy boots, they are from Gild at The Arcade.  They have all the colors you can wish for of fur boots and the machine is 50L a play.  They have them for both men and women.

Finally, my hair and hat is a Fifty Lindens Friday pick from Wasabi, I just checked and she still has it up, but not sure how long it will be up for!

Arielle is looking fabulous in…

Good afternoon, FabFree Readers. 

I don’t think Dixie is taking this seriously. She just looks at me with those big puppy dog eyes and I can’t be mad at her. But if Juli finds one more pair of shoes chewed to pieces….  we’ll both be in the dog house. Maybe I should buy her some flowers.  Juli… not Dixie. I’m pretty sure Dixie would just chew those up too.

Something Simple

Something Simple

Good evening, FabFree Readers. If your mood has been anything like Julianna’s these last few days, you’ve been running around madly trying to scoop all the gifts and prizes and shopping all day.  I do suppose that one thing about being a guy on the Grid… I can take it in a bit more relaxing attitude.  And I am all about relaxing. I did go over to BoHo Soul this weekend to pick up the very nice prize for the gentlemen for the FabFree Enchanted Hunt. So a special ‘Thank You’ to Maya for remembering us guys.

This is the ‘Enchanted Forest Men’s Hoodie’ in my favorite color : forest green. Appropriate, no? The hoodie is very well designed and fits like a dream. I truly appreciate the excellent work that obviously went into it. It’s the perfect gear for an early morning walk when you want something to take the chill off. 

The FabFree Enchanted Forest Hunt runs until July 22nd but with awesome prizes like this… why delay?

Sizes Included

  • Belleza Jake

Suited

Suited

Good afternoon, Fab Readers. My post today is going to interest our newer members of the Grid because the more experienced among us have surely already taken full advantage of my finds today. I’m speaking of the 1L Shop at Gabriel. Of course, I am a frequent shopper at Gabriel… it’s something abut the name….  At any rate, I wandered to the back of the main store today to see the newly added 50% Discount area. Excellent deals there, by the way… just none I can show on here for75L or less. However, the 1L shop is a delight. The stock is clearly being rotated through and most of what I found was completely new on the 1L shelves.  Like this stunning pinstripe suit I picked out. I do love a good suit. I’ve said it before : Boys have swagger, Men have character… Gentlemen have style.

Also, before I go, I want to offer a hearty welcome to Mr. Korday. Its good to have another gentleman in the mix. Cheers!

Sizes Included

  • One size + Alpha if needed

A little freedom

A little freedom

Hey FabFree, I hope your Wednesday is going awesome.  You know if it isn’t, I sympathize. I’ve had a weird couple of days myself. But you know what always helps? You guessed it Free stuff!!!  And what’s even better than free stuff? Fabulously Free free Group Gifts!

Like this simply gorgeous gown from Sweet Willows. I was on the FabFree chat when I went to pick up this gown and I think I may have pestered all the chatters with all my talk about what’s going on in the Sweet Willows shop! But there’s SO much! Special sales, gifts and even a 50% discount when you wear your FabFree Group tag!  Anyway, the Ivanka gown is the FabFree group gift and it’s just splendid. It comes with a HUD to change the color/patterns of the over dress (the black part) and the skirt and top (the white parts). The HUD has eight colors for each and it’s just endlessly mix and matchable!

Sizes Included

  • Belleza Freya
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique

My other FabFree Gifty is the lovely snowflake choker from Chop Zuey.  The Silent Sweet Night choker comes with a HUD to change the color of the choker and the three beautiful snowflakes suspended on it. Eight colors, both with either silver or gold metals and eight gemstone colors await your creative control.

Making Holiday Memories

Holiday Memory Making

In all honesty little moments like this one are my favorite part of the holidays. I find the most joy in things like wrapping presents, and cozying up with my love to watch Christmas movies. It might be an unusual year to say the least, but we can still find moments to enjoy the little things that matter most. Blue and I got into a festive mood recently with the free hunt prizes by Always Design and Park Place on the Peace on Earth Hunt. The merriment was made even better thanks to the 60L Happy Weekend offer from Muniick. Keep reading for all the details, and enjoy the weekend Fab Free!

Always Design

Generally speaking I’m not the sort that wants to wear matching outfits. There’s something about matching pajamas however that make me want them. These matching his and hers footie pajamas are the free Peace on Earth Hunt prize at Always Design. They come with a color change hud that lets you pick from a handful of solid colors for the men, and stripes for the ladies. Also, these jammies can be worn by classic and mesh avatars.

Hunt Hint – “I have the best place to watch you.”

Mens Sizes Included: Mi Mado, Adin Bento, Onupup, Slink Male, Belleza Jake, Signature Gianni, Fitmesh Classic + Alpha Layer

Womens Sizes Included: Fitmesh (xs – XL) + Alpha Layer, Belleza, Maitreya, Slink

Park Place

The cuddles are brought to you by Park Place! All silliness aside, the very generous free Peace on Earth Hunt prize at Park Place includes this cute PG ottoman, the occasional table, the lamp, and all the little holiday goodies you see sitting on top of the table. Everything is copy so you can rez out multiples, and the lamp can be turned on or off via touch. The ottoman has male and female sit poses, and quite a few cuddles.

Hunt Hint – “You’ll find me in Wilmington.”

Muniick

There’s nothing like the holidays to make a person feel nostalgic. That said, if the 60L Happy Weekend offer by Muniick doesn’t get you right in the Christmas feels, I don’t know what would. This weekend only as part of the Happy Weekend Sale you can get this Christmas Edition of Muniick’s Vintage Television Cabinet set for just 60 linden. The 6 piece set has a console television with11 Christmas and New Years channel options, working model train, sad Christmas tree, Ho Ho Ho blocks, cinnamon stick candles, working Christmas lights, a bonus tv with non holiday themed channels, and a larger version of the model train.
