Stardust

Prudence Stardust Hello Fab Free! So not only does this post contain some great finds, it’s also my little Fab Free virtual tribute to the indescribable David Bowie. For a fan such as me, it’s hard to imagine that his time with us is truly over. Another person wrote that they were not sad, but grateful for his time here. I feel much the same way, grateful that I lived when he lived and had the opportunity to see and hear the way he changed the world forever.

Mr. Bowie heavy on my mind, how could I not also think of his iconic persona, Ziggy Stardust. I put together this uber cute outfit with Ziggy Stardust as my inspiration. The possibilities are infinite when trying to put together an outfit, from the flaming red hair and the often theatrical makeup he often wore. I felt this jumper from Stix was well suited to the task. These playful rompers are available at the current round of Oh My Gacha for just 50 lindens per play. In a lot of ways they do remind me of the bodysuits and jumpsuits Ziggy Stardust was known to wear. Each color of these fun rompers includes a system layer, a TMP applier, and an Omega applier.

I have to say I spent quite a bit of time hunting down the perfect something to add to this outfit, the romper from Stix alone just was not enough for me. I found that something in this Blazer from Luas. This mesh blazer has those very structured shoulders that make me think of 1980s divas and of course, David Bowie in his Ziggy style. This blazer from Luas is available on the Marketplace for just 60 lindens per color.

So last but not least, the one piece that makes the look truly a tribute to the late great Bowie, the zig-zag lightening bolt face paint. This really could be no one else. The makeup is FREE on the Marketplace from a shop called Avanti. I was thrilled to find it, and even more so when I tried the applier. This FREE Marketplace gift from Avanti includes a system tattoo layer and an Omega applier.

Really and truly I hope you enjoy this look as much as I enjoyed putting it together!

Here are the details.

Rockin’ Retro

Rock Christmas

Hello Fab Free’rs! I hope everyone is ready for the up-coming holiday! At the Rexroth house we are about as ready for Christmas as we are going to get. LOL The house is decorated, presents have been bought and wrapped, and the big Christmas breakfast planned. Now I’m ready for some down-time!

Listening to music is one of my favorite methods of winding down and having a good time. Irrie’s Dollhouse has a cool collection of retro inspired radios and music memorabilia as part of their contribution to the Erotigacha event. Not to mention this uber cool guitar and stool set is also one of the gacha prizes. These highly detailed and functional items are well worth the 70 lindens per play you’ll spend to collect them. Some items include a color change hud, and most if not all of the items have re-size scripts.

In addition to the Rock n’ Roll gacha items, Irrie’s Dollhouse also has a shoe gacha at the Erotigacha event with shoes for men and women. The Creepers Pru has on are an example of the men’s shoes. Lucky for the ladies, the Creepers while intended for men also have a re-size script. Pru is wearing the pair meant for classic avatars, resized down to fit Slink Flat feet. Though I chose to go with the more casual men’s Creepers, the shoes for the ladies are absolutely adorable! Just like the other gacha, this one is just 70 lindens per play.
Jacket & Shoes

To go with my super cute Creepers I found this great jacket and tshirt combo at a shop called NS. The jacket & shirt combo is their December group gift. The set is fully mesh and includes a color change hud with 6 options to change the colored part of the jacket. The NS Group has a one time join fee of 100 lindens. Simply wear your group tag and click the vendor to get the gift.

I’m certain you noticed the adorable puppy with the holiday hat and bag full of goodies hanging out with Pru listening to the music. This adorable little pup is a FREE group gift from Knockers. The Knockers VIP group was recently gifted with this cute little doggie, so be sure to check the past notices. The Knockers VIP group has a one time join fee of 150 lindens, however the awesome group gifts make the fee completely worth it! I think the Christmas Pup alone is worth the cost of joining!

Dreaming of a White Elephant Christmas

My Gothic Christmas

As far as I am concerned you can still be goth and love the Holidays. Anyone who says different, well they are missing out! I spent an afternoon at the White Elephant Fair and had a really great time. There are tons of great bargains to be had from some wonderful designers. Additionally there are gacha machines all along the walkways and a huge Christmas tree overflowing with gifts from many of the participating designers. Several of the gifts are even FREE!

First things first, how cute is this dress? I love the cute argyle pattern of this fully mesh dress. It’s one of the gachas from Mutiny in Heaven. You can score one of several versions of this dress for just 35 lindens per play. The playful dress comes with a matching alpha layer, and standard mesh sizes. In addition to these fun sweater dresses, Mutiny in Heaven also has this gorgeous long hairstyle as one of their gachas. The hairstyle is called “Maeve” and is just 50 linden per play.

My Gothic Christmas Outfit

Now about those gifts I mentioned.  As those who know me know that I love bats, so this super cute Christmas hat with the bats from The Little Bat is of course my favorite of the gifts I found under the Christmas Tree at The White Elephant Fair. The Little Bat gift hat is FREE, just find the gift under the tree and purchase for zero linden.

Another personal favorite is this festive fuzzy jewelry set from Indulge Temptation. The set includes a necklace (shown) and matching earrings (not shown) with fuzzy little pom poms. Included in the gift is a color change /resize hud that lets you resize and change the color of the metal parts as well as the pom poms. The White Elephant gift from Indulge Temptation is just one linden. As with all the White Elephant Fair gifts, you’ll find this one under the big Christmas tree.

Always a sucker for makeup, I was delighted to find the gift from Dust Bunnies under the White Elephant Fair Christmas tree. The gift is a set of lovely lip appliers in various shades of holly red. Included in the gift are appliers for Omega, Catwa, Lelutka, and Slink, as well as system tatoo layers for each shade. With all the appliers, and matching system layers, these lipsticks are a steal at just one linden for the set.

Finally, I seriously enjoy decorating for the Holidays. If I had infinite funds and free time, I would decorate the whole house with each season and holiday. Yes, I’m that person! Luckily for me, and for you, the White Elephant Fair gift from Yay and Stuff includes two wreaths, one black (shown) and one red (not shown), as well as a pair of reindeer slippers (not shown). The wreaths are able to be copied so you can put out as many as you like. This gift can be had for just 10 lindens.

All these gifts and the gachas are just a tiny example of the bargains to be had at The White Elephant Fair. I highly suggest everyone take some time to check it out. Even the scenery is worth the visit.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

PSYCHO Zombie Hunter!

Zombie Hunter PruI hope you’ve had a fabulous weekend Fab Free! So today, I thought I’d just have a little fun and play dress-up, Halloween style. Zombies are huge this year, if you’re not a zombie, why not be a zombie hunter? With the Wayward Halloween Gacha  items from Psycho Byts you can do just that! This gruesome gacha has all the gory accessories any zombie hunter could need.

Zombie Hunter Pru 1

The Psycho Byts machine at the Wayward Halloween Gacha  event is just 50 lindens per play. Each of the items is fully mesh, and some include a texture change hud. Starting with the hokey mask, this iconic horror accessory can be textured plain or bloody. The default position is over the face, but I edited the position to be as shown in the photo. Looks like I escaped the zombies just in time, these creepy severed zombie arms are animated to wiggle as if they were still “alive”. Every zombie hunter needs a weapon, and this machete is just the thing! The weapon comes with a hud so the machete can be clean or bloody, and includes an animation to switch from holding it out to holding it up over your shoulders. For an added creepiness factor, one of the Psycho Byts gacha prizes in this set are these monstrous zombie eyes. The eyes include a color change hud as well, with 3 color options. Lastly, if you need a souvenir of your zombie kills, you can score a necklace of ears, or this ghastly pail complete with the zombie head floating in blood. There are a few additional prizes in this gacha set that I didn’t show, so I’ve included a photo of the key below. To add a little to this glam-goth zombie hunter look of mine, I also picked up a cross lip applier by Mad’ on the Marketplace for just 15 lindens. The set includes lip appliers for TMP, Catwa, Lelutka, and Slink heads.

Guest Blog by Gloria Silverstone – Twisted Victorian Gothic

See the Original Post here – Twisted Victorian Gothic

POSTED ON OCTOBER 9, 2015

FT Twisted Fall hunt 2015_Victorian Gothic LRThe Twisted Hunt (9/19-10/19) is well under way and although dubbed the hardest hunt on Second Life, the prizes are worth the effort.  Today, I’m showcasing Finishing Touches main hunt gift the Qi Skybox, side hunt items and a corresponding gacha collection.  The skybox and all the furnishings have a modern Victorian Gothic influence in a black, white and grayscale palette….perfect for a sophisticated Halloween.  Victorian Gothic is an architectural style and movement during the mid-late 19th century, often seen as a sub-style of the broader Gothic Revival style.  It is characterized by gothic details, decorative patterns, scallopping, lancet windows and hood moulding.  Architectural elements such as pointed arches, steep-sloping roofs and fancy carvings like lace ant lattice-work were applied to a wide range of Gothic Revival objects.  The movement is all about drama and elegance with lavish interiors, curved ornate furniture and plenty of decorative details.

FT Twisted Fall hunt 2015_Victorian GothicFinishing Touches Qi skybox has a decorative pattern tiled ceiling, tall narrow pointed arched windows, oversized white candle fireplace and white/black wainscoting.  I styled the Victorian living space with the tufted curved black & white sofas, armchairs and stools enhancing the ornate detailed birdcage chandeliers and patterned tapestry wall hangings.  Pops of red, hanging boston ferns, potted palms and framed Victorian silhouette complete the space.

FT Twisted Fall hunt 2015_Gold SkeletonTo commemorate the 11th Twisted Hunt, Finishing Touches is offering a side hunt with eleven gifts that correspond to the gacha collection.  The hunt items include 3 versions of a skirted table, 3 versions of hanging tapestry, couple rugs with pillows, Persian Grey wrinkled rug, box of skulls, pumpkin trio and ceramic vase.  All side hunt gifts can be found in the Twisted Qi skybox (the main Twisted Hunt gift).  Do you love the Qi skybox?  Need to furnish it, then check out the gacha for beautifully twisted coordinating decor priced at $50 per play.  Try your luck at black or white caged chandeliers, shadow box frames, tulip lamps, coffee tables, and tufted stools (see key below).

_FT_ Twisted Gacha Fall 2015Lastly, 24Karat Roux, owner and creator of Finishing Touches is offering the Rolled Arm Couch & Chair in White Leather and Black Leather for 50% off the regular price during the Twisted Hunt.  The couch and chair were designed to coordinate with the Twisted Qi skybox hunt gift and Twisted gacha decor items.  Hope you are inspired to create an elegance spooky gothic Halloween using the Finishing Touches free Twisted hunt gifts.  Happy Hunting!

Taxi to Finishing Touches please…

Summer Time, and the Livin’s Easy

Summer Heat

This is the time of year when if you live in the south, you want to wear as little as possible as often as possible. It’s just to darn hot outside! So for this post, Pru is wearing a vibrant pink bikini (and this one is mini!) by Holli Pocket that you can pick up for FREE at Fab Free Headquarters. I do think the little bit of white lace on the bikini top is a nice detail. This FREE gift at FFHQ comes in regular system layers, and includes an Omega applier.

To go over her itsy bitsy teeny weeny pink bikini bottoms, Pru is also wearing some super cute boy shorts by Pixy Stix. These shorties are a current gacha prize at the Oh My Gacha event. There are several patterns available at just 50 lindens per play at Oh My Gacha. I also love these kinds of shorts for just lazing around the house!

Last but not at all least, this striking toffee toned skin is a current VIP group gift from Birdy. The gift costs an initial 1 linden but the 1 linden is instantly refunded. If  you’re not already a Birdy group member, the one time join fee is 150 lindens, however there are 2 group gifts skins (this one included) and you can get some of the appliers to go with the skins for just 1 linden. This gift includes an applier for Naym Naym mouth, a tattoo freckle layer, face dew in 2 shades, 3 shades of contouring, 3 shades of gloss, eyeliner, as well as a no brows version of the skin.

I hope everyone is enjoying the summer and staying cool!
