It’s FATE: Friday Guy Day is BACK!

Blogging soon!

FATEwear is celebrating it’s first anniversary, and as a treat for subscribers, is giving out this awesome Leon jacket! It comes with a HUD so you can choose from 15 different colors, and there’s even a version with the hood up. New FATEwear subscribers can receive this gift simply by hitting the subscribo. Current subscribers should already have received the gift, but in case you missed it (like I did), head over to the main store, unsubscribe, and then re-subscribe. Works like a charm! 😀 My shoes have been shown before, but bear repeating. These unisex leather sneakers are from DUH!, and include a white pair in the box for just 10L. BUT…  they are FREE for new residents under 30 days! See our FabFree ’30 Days List for more great freebies for new residents.

Blogging soon!

After a long wait, Aeva // Heartsick finally has a new men’s group gift out! Elijah Beardy comes in 9 different skin tones, and includes 2 shapes, eyelash layers, and teeth layers. If beards aren’t your thing, check out The Wash Cart Sale, where Aeva // Heartsick is selling 3 non-bearded skin tones of Elijah for just 10L each. Love showed them here a few days ago. My bracelet and ring are both new group gifts at Chop Zuey Couture. There is also a pair of men’s earrings that match the ring.

The pigs cheat at cards. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

Professor Grieferschock and The Mad Alchemist

“Lulled in the countless chambers of the brain, our thoughts are linked by many a hidden chain; awake but one, and in, what myriads rise!”  ~ Alexander Pope

Blogging soon!

Why yes, I am wearing a giant potion syringe on my back. You just never know when a you’ll need to inject someone very large with a potion. Oh, and it drips, so watch out.

Blogging soon!

Serena sent me out to pick up a couple of gifts from the Sinister Steampunk Hunt 3: Mysteries of the Unknown. First is this awesome, unisex Mad Alchemist outfit by Brain Circuit Inc. It includes the hat, coat, pants (under the coat), gadget belt, and giant potion syringe (there are some smaller pieces for the ladies). My electrifying gloves are from Chaos, Panic, & Disorder, and are really quite amazing. I poked myself in the eye with them several times, but thank goodness this is SL and I’m fine. My skin is the men’s group gift from Story Leaf. Serena showed the ladies gift a few days ago. There are several scars, so I must have sliced my face with these babies a few times, too. Alchemy is not for the faint of heart.

The Sinister Steampunk Hunt 3 runs until August 31st, and all prizes are free.

Long day today, so this is just a “quickie” before I head off to dreamland. 🙂

Gavin and I decided to take Duncan for a little play time down at the beach this afternoon. Gavin is wearing a hooded tee and shorts, the group gifts from new FabDesigner flow. His camo sneakers are a group gift from BALKANIK2.0, which come in a pack of several different colors. My shorts and top are the latest group gift from Prism Designs. The top also comes with Lolas appliers. My white canvas slip-ons are from the lucky board at DUH!

Walking the Dog

With her usual enthusiasm, Nessie decided to take Gavin and me out for a walk on the beach after dinner. 🙂

Blogging Soon!

Gavin and I are both wearing the July group gifts from SHIKI (free to join); for me, that includes this brightly-colored dress, and for Gavin, it’s the shorts and polo shirt. Gavin is also wearing the mesh boat shoes which are a group gift from GABRIEL, sunglasses from Vooza (featured at Epicosity’s Beach Party), and a group gift bracelet from Chop Zuey.

Both of us are wearing free gift hairs from Hair Fair 2013. Gavin’s is one of many for men and women found in the gift box from Alli & Ali. Mine is the gift from Analog Dog, which you can pick up your favorite color, as well as every other color! I’m wearing my favorite red, but you can see Care wearing a different color here. Don’t forget: a portion of your Hair Fair 2013 purchases go to benefit Wigs for Kids, so please show your support! 🙂

The Fisherman

The Fisherman

Ah… what a beautiful morning for some fishing on the lake. So far, I haven’t caught anything, but I’m not ready to go home yet. Good thing I brought my lunch. Anyway, my fishing gear today consists of these great cargo pants and skullie shirt by Ruca Tease for the Color Explosion Hunt. Care and Love have already shown you a few ladies items from this hunt, but there are also men’s prizes to be found. The hunt runs until May 31st, and all prizes are free. More info on the official blog.

My hat is a MENstuff gift from JfL, bracelet is a group gift from Ronsem, and my earring is a group gift from ::GABRIEL::. These unisex sneakers were just 10L at Duh! and come with both black and white versions in the box. However, if you’re a new resident under 30 days old, you can pick up a free pair at the front desk of the in-world store.

At the rate I’m going, we won’t be having fish for dinner tonight. 😦

Friday GuyDay: For Men Only

FINALLY – a day off! I’m actually supposed to be taking Serena out for her Rez Day, but I thought I’d spend a little time relaxing at the beach first. Before heading out, I picked up these cargo shorts and tank top, the Men Only Hunt 3 gift from 22769. This hunt runs until May 31st, and all items are free. And you know how hard it is to find good free stuff for men!

22769_moh_7f

Speaking of free, I’m wearing the new group gift eyes from IKON that Love showed you earlier today. Yes, guys can wear them too! All of my jewelry was also free; my earring and rings are gifts from GABRIEL (free to join), and my bracelet is a group gift from Chop Zuey (350L to join). My flip flops were not free, but are on sale for 30% off until May 5th at Slink. In fact, everything except hands and feet are on sale, so if you’ve been waiting to pick up a new pair of shoes, now’s the time!

Oh, one more thing: Katey Coppola of Glitterati Poses celebrated her birthday on May 1st, and is giving a gift to all of us! For a limited time, you can join the FREE Glitterati VIP group (not to be confused with the not-free, 500L, VIP group), click the gift board, and get 150L in store credit. If you happen to be a member of the 500L VIP group, or feel like joining, you can hit the other gift board and get 500L in store credit. So take your pick! But hurry – Katey said the gifts would only be out for “a few days,” whatever that means. And who doesn’t need a new pose or two? 😀

Friday GuyDay: The Guardian

pekasapril3_001f

Yo ho, yo ho, a pirate’s life for me! It’s Friday GuyDay again, and this time I’m bringing you The Guardian, the April group gift from PeKaS Design Gorean. Everything you see here is included, even the boots and the over-the-eyes hood. Perfect for maintaining anonymity while doing unscrupulous pirate things. 😉

pekasapril8_001f

My skin is AKERUKA’s long-awaited new group gift, Caesar. He comes with the facial hair you see here, as well as the dark eye shadows. I’m also wearing the *DURA* Valentine group gift hair, which is still available (along with the Christmas gift hair), and was previously modeled by Kai Trill a few times, as well as guest blogger Kyle Beckett. It has a short ponytail in the back. Be sure to pick up the free pack of hairbases while you’re there.

Now, I’m off to drink some grog and count me booty! ARRRRR!

Dog Day Afternoon

You know the expression, “Going to the dogs?” Well, that’s pretty much where my day has gone. In addition to the many, many SL problems, there have been family interruptions, phones and doorbells ringing, and numerous computer problems that have left me eyeing the hammer for a solution. I had so much trouble taking this photo that I finally just gave up and went with one of the few shots I managed to get. So I apologize for the goofy errors you see here. 😡

Ok, enough whining. I’m sure you’d rather know what we’re wearing, anyway. 😉

vmapril2_001f2

Gavin and I are both wearing the April group gifts from Vero Modero. Gavin’s outfit includes the mesh hoodie and pants, and mine is this floral print, mesh dress. The sleeves of my dress are supposed to have the cutouts you see here, but the additional little “hole” is a break in the mesh from this pose, which I didn’t notice until after I had given up on the photos. I didn’t want you to think it was a flaw in the dress, because it’s not (Gavin’s pants have a little rip in the right leg, but that’s supposed to be there). Our necklaces are group gifts from Chop Zuey (350L to join). I apologize that you can’t see the earrings hidden in my hair, and bracelets that Gavin is blocking, as both are free gifts for everyone – no group is needed! If you head over to the Chop Zuey store, you’ll be able to see big photos of both of these under the FabFree sign. Gavin is still wearing the free group gift eyes from Hudson’s Clothing Co. (free to join) that he had on here. The sunglasses are part of the Mr. Hunter Hunt v.IV gift from Shadow Moon, which Gavin modeled here. Oh, and Gavin’s ring is a free gift from ::GABRIEL:: – no group is needed, but you do need the special code from their Facebook page.

If you have ventured into the world of mesh feet/hands, you’ve most likely heard that many skin designers have released texture applier HUDs for the recently updated Slink feet and hands. I won’t get into the details here, since several other bloggers have already written detailed posts on the how’s and why’s of using them. But I will say this: I’ve wasted spent many, MANY hours trying to match my feet to different skins, and it wasn’t easy. These appliers are literally ONE click to match. It’s that simple! To celebrate, [:Tuli:] is offering these cute henna tattoo appliers for her group members (199L to join). These are actual appliers for the Slink mesh feet – not simple tattoo layers – and include 3 different henna tattoos. I still haven’t made the leap to mesh  hands, but in case you have, there is also a gift henna applier for hands. Note: these gift appliers only work with [:Tuli:] skins, and will not match skins from other designers (mesh feet are not included).

Ok dogs: I want my day back! 😀

Friday GuyDay: Fields of Green and Gold

With all the new ladies here at FabFree, I thought maybe we could use an infusion of testosterone. So I made an “executive decision” and declared Friday to be GuyDay. It’s still Friday where I am, so I can just squeak this one in under the wire. 🙂

kuamt1_001f

My outfit today is made up of a variety of freebies, group gifts, and one very good deal. First, the good deal, which is this mesh sweater and t-shirt by Kauna that Serena picked up for me at this month’s Collabor88. For 288L, you get 5 different colored cardigans, with 5 different colors of t-shirts. You can mix and match the sweaters and t-shirts, or even wear the t-shirts without the cardigan, if you choose. So that’s… what… about 29L per item? Not free, but not a bad deal, either. All items come in standard mesh sizing. You can’t have too many t-shirts and sweaters, can you?

Now, the freebies: these mesh jeans are the current group gift from [meshTheory]. The group is 150L to join, but there are quite a few gifts for both men and women out, and a new gift is available each month. My hat/hair is this month’s group gift from SF Design (100L to join). Both the hat and the hair are color change (and resizeable), so there’s sure to be something for everyone. These awesome mesh sneakers are a group gift from BalkaniK 2.0 (free to join), and come in 7 different colors/designs. Finally, my leather bracelet is a group gift from RONSEM (free to join).

*TGIG, folks. Enjoy your weekend. 😉

Dedicated to the Finer Things in Life

ydeamar8f

Since it’s Saint Patrick’s Day Eve, I thought I’d head over to Dublin and look for a pub in which to celebrate. I’m feeling festive in my St. Patrick’s Day group gift from *Ydea* (free to join), which includes the mesh shirt, vest and tie, pants, and shoes. My skin is the Jacob group gift, which is still available at Belleza (250L to join), and my bracelet is a group gift from Chop Zuey (350L to join).

This looks like my kind of place. Sláinte!

(That’s Gaelic for “Cheers” or “To your health!”)
