Sunday Funday

Colors

Hi Fabfree’rs! I hope you’re all enjoying the weekend! I’ve got some Sunday Funday goodies to share, so I’ll get right to it. Starting with this pretty skin from Lumae. This skin is the Lazy Sunday item at Lumae, her name is “Awestruck” and I think it suits her. You can get this pretty skin today only for just 75 lindens per tone. Each tone comes with a full set of appliers and brow/freckle/cleavage options.  Don’t miss this one!

Next, this super fun dress from Entice. This colorful mesh dress comes in several color variations, and you can pick it up for just 60 lindens as part of the 60 Linden Weekends sale. This “More Than Words” dress is fully mesh and comes in standard sizes. Again, don’t miss out on this great dress. Also at Entice are some pretty new manicure sets. Pru is showing off an eye-catching shade of red that is part of the “solids” palate. There are two palates available as part of the “Possession” collection. Each nail palate is just 50 lindens at Entice.

Always, the best for last, shoes!! These awesome spiked heels are a recent subscribo gift from HUCCI. They are meant to be worn with Slink High feet and come with a color change hud to change the color of the spikes and the sole of the shoes. I think they are pretty awesome, and the sort of iridescent color of these “Queluz” pumps is great for summer. You just can’t go wrong with great shoes, especially when they are FREE! **Please note that this gift may only be available to current HUCCI subscriber members. (Join anyway so you don’t miss out on future gifts!)

Goodbye to Sandra D.

Sandra

Hello Fab Free! For those celebrating Memorial Day this weekend, I hope you have some lovely weather. One of the great things about Second Life is the rain can’t ruin the party.  Speaking of parties, I feel ready for a retro sock-hop in this fantastically adorable group group gift at Knockers.

The Knockers group is 150 lindens to join, and this fully mesh group gift dress and matching jacket are well worth the effort. This mesh dress can be worn with or without the matching mesh jacket. I think the jacket would be equally cute with jeans, and y0u’ve gotta love the iconic poodle decal on the skirt as well as the back of the jacket. Both items come in standard mesh sizes with matching alpha layers. The dress has appliers for Lolas Tango and Mirage.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Much ♥’s

Hello again, my Dear FabFree Folks! I have returned from the Highlands! I told you, y’all couldn’t get rid of me that easily.  So while shuffling through vacation snaps and doing loads of laundry I knew I had to make time to jump back in world and visit the We ♥ Role Play May event.

WLRP_001

This round of We ♥ Role Play, is the Second Anniversary of the shopping event and tons of the designers have set out free and almost free ‘Happy Birthday’ gifts. Plus, many designers have out special items for 10L or less. First up is the Reverie Ring from Empyrean Forge. The gold ring comes with a HUD to change the center stone with six colors to choose from.

wlrpnew_001

Next up is the Tinuviel Crown from Evie’s Closet. I love the delicate leaves and pearls on this crown. The gift includes a matching collar with the same ethereal build.

Last but not least is another sweet little ring from Fawny. The Sweet Rose ring in gold is another delicate piece and I love the simple style.

WLRP_005

If you like role play or fantasy items you can’t miss this event!       Your taxi to the event!

What Goes Around, Comes Around!

whc lyrcoldash pic

I never intended it to happen, but do you have an article of clothing that you rely on as a “go to” item, one that absolutely refuses to age? I do! And, later in this post, we are going to celebrate its one-year anniversary in my wardrobe. First though, check out what I found last night! I went by a store named Cold Ash, which specializes in fantastically detailed, rugged-looking men’s clothing. I found this vintage style T-shirt as their FREE Group Gift! The Mesh Austin Tee in STEEL BLUE is a fine representation of the quality that goes into the clothing that Cold Ash makes. Anyone who knows me knows I am a sucker for T-Shirts that look soft and well-worn, and this ribbed cotton T-shirt hangs beautifully with soft, realistic folds. It’s like it was never meant to be taken off. In the FREE Group Gift, you get 3 sizes and an additional 2 sizes in fitmesh, so getting a good fit won’t be any problem. Stop by Cold Ash, this is a must pick up! The pants I chose to wear with it are the current FREE Group Gift from Lavarock, likely my favorite male clothing store on Second Life. They are the Destroy Male Jeans and are probably one of the grungiest items in my wardrobe. I love the texture on them. Honestly, if I ever move to Seattle to pursue my dreams of alt-rock super stardom, these are the jeans I am going to wear! They come in 2 styles, with five sizes of each included in the gift. The only problem is they have been out for quite a while, and at the moment I am unable to say how much longer they will remain available. If you like them in the picture, go get them immediately. I suspect they may not be available much longer. The last item in the Cold Ash inspired outfit is the cap, which was just one of those lucky finds you sometimes run across accidentally. It is a 1L hunt prize from a hunt which is sadly already over. Luckily, the owner of Ashmoot forgot to pick up the hunt prize! It’s only 1L and the cap matches the T-shirt wonderfully. Sadly I can’t recall the name of the hunt, but you are looking for a hunt object shaped like a mask called “P-H Hunt # 8″. Look for it where you find the daily prize boards. Kristabel Ashmoot promises me she will leave it out until the end of the month so we all have a chance to grab it (a VERY sweet thing to do for us). Be sure to pick it up before it’s too late!

I teased you that as I write this I am celebrating an anniversary of sorts, and I have Lyrieal’s Boutique to thank for it. I recently attended “Just For Him”, a cart sale like event with a 1L mini-hunt where I found this great leather jacket! It comes from Lyrieal’s Boutique and is their Just For Him Hunt Prize. It has a hud that allows you to choose 5 different colors in both the leather and the lining. For a single linden, that’s great value. The event is not a large one, but I should have known Lyrieal’s Boutique would have something special out. This brings me to the anniversary: I was dying to show you this jacket and was having trouble finding just the right pants to present it with, so I decided to go with my “go to” grey system jeans and Mesh boots, tinting the jeans a bit darker to match. After doing the picture, I began putting together this post, and found I had reason to smile. Those beloved jeans and boots of mine are from a hunt one year ago today…and were previously blogged here by a young guest blogger. Coincidentally, they also came from Lyrieal’s Boutique! So, to celebrate the one-year anniversary of their posting in Fab Free, the In The Pink outfit has been added to the 1L hunt prize, making it even better. It is a great looking outfit and the jeans are tintable to match a wide range of grays, so they are super handy to have around. Even the boots are nice, you can’t beat this value. I had originally planned to end my post here, and call it a night, but once I get going I am hard to stop. So in the spirit of “You really should check out the Just For Him sales event”, here is a final addition to my post below!

whc cold ash beach 1_001

While I was at the sale, I noticed a pair of shorts on the back wall of the booth belonging to the store Trashed. Just like the other coincidences this week (the hat which looked great with the T-shirt that was accidentally left out, and the nice jeans I decided to wear being posted to fab free exactly one year ago today) these denim shorts look like they were made to go with the Cold Ash T-Shirt I picked up this week. The Trashed Men’s denim shorts in plaid are not free, but this is a sale event as well as a hunt and these shorts look really great. If you love that T-shirt as much as I do, that is reason enough to pony up the extra 85L for these shorts to go with them. They make a fantastic pair together. Once again, I have worked late into the evening and I must go, but this has been a post full of pleasant surprises. Until next time my friends, see you on the grid. —–WHC Riler

Bohemian Ballerina

Boho

I’m not sure what to call this look, I think I’ll go with Bohemian Ballerina. This pretty floral top is the FREE May subscribo gift at ViVi. It comes in  regular system layers and includes several appliers. I thought it was really sweet and pretty on. Initially I thought about putting on a cute pair of blue-jean shorts and some summery sandals, but I came across this dainty mini skirt on the Marketplace, and went with it. I think the end result turned out well! The skirt is by Lamp*Light and includes a color change hud to change the skirt from white to blue, pink, or black. Considering this fully mesh skirt is just 1 linden, it’s well worth the effort even though it does not come with an alpha layer.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

A ViSion in Lumae

ViSion Lumae

It’s the weekend, it’s the weekend, it’s the weekend!!!

Okay now that I got that out of my system, I’ve got some loveliness to share with you. For starters, this beautiful skin from Lumae. So this lovely skin with the pretty purple eye shadow, and soft pink lip-color is available at Lumae for just 75 lindens per tone. Each tone includes a freckled version and a non-freckled version, cleavage options, brow options, as well as appliers for everything. No seriously, everything. The list of appliers included is Maitreya Lara, Slink Physique, Slink Hands & Feet, AMD Baby Bump, Omega (regular & petite), TMP Body & Head, Lelutka Head, Loud Mouth, Nyam Nyam, Sweet Lips, and Kissers. In addition, you’ll find two shapes in the box, one of which is ready-made to be worn with a Loud Mouth attachment. Do not miss out on this fabulous Lumae deal!

Next is this cute and a bit daring semi-sheer top from ViSion. This top is a FREE group gift at the ViSion store, the ViSion group is FREE to join as well. Also, there are about ten group gifts out at ViSion, most of which are sexy tops and lingerie. Not interested in something quite so sheer? I think this would be just as sexy with a solid colored bra or tank top under it. This gift top comes in regular system layers, and has appliers for Maitreya Lara, Slink Physique, Belleza, Omega, and TMP. Most of the gifts include appliers of some kind, some are even geared toward more curvy mesh parts and include Lolas and Azz appliers. Go, check out the ViSion store, and grab some sexy FREE gifts while you’re there.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

From Farmboy To Pop Icon!

WHC Farmboy 1

Greetings from the Riler family farm, where we grow all kinds of healthy food that I won’t eat. I remember once when I was a young pup and Mom asked me “Why won’t you eat fruits and vegetables? There has to be something that we can grow that you’ll eat.” Mom stared at me in complete exasperation. That was the day I learned parrots do not grow on trees. Also, I am told if they did, parrot trees would not grow in the Midwest. I have learned a lot about farming since then, most of it from countless hours of playing FarmVille on Facebook.

The most important lesson I learned about farming is: Do not dress like you have just fallen off the turnip truck. (Wait, if you actually did just fall off the turnip truck, you probably are a farmer anyway, so dressing like that is good, too.) My point is, you are going to want to dress the part and the FREE Gingham Hunt Prize from Firelight Creations/MAN STUFF is perfect for that handsome farmhand look. The prize consists of the Leroy mesh shirt in red gingham and the Cole jeans in light blue denim. The shirt is very nicely shaped and, together with the mesh Cole jeans, which I also consider a keeper, this is a very masculine look. MAN STUFF is the division of Firelight Creations we have to thank for this FREE hunt gift, but included in the same box is a matching women’s outfit from Firelight Creations. This hunt prize would be a very good start for a “Country” kind of outfit for club events and sims, in addition to being nice enough for your regular wardrobe. I may not be the kind of guy suited for farm work, but in this outfit, I could do commercials for brand name soda pop on TV. I could easily imagine myself drinking an ice cold can of pop, condensation dripping down my muscular chest, as my female co-workers in the office break room gawk in silent appreciation. Casual Friday – here I come! Kidding aside, this outfit looks great, and I could seriously sell a ton of pop in this.

For a more suburban look, I love this FREE thank you gift from Carami! It is the Trenton Tee and it comes in a set of five solid dark colors, changeable via hud. This is far more than just a basic mesh T-shirt, this FREE Gift is much more generous than that. The Trenton Tee comes in four variations; tucked, untucked, normal bottom untucked, and narrow bottom untucked. With choices like that, getting a great fit and the right look should not be hard at all. One last reason you need to pick up this FREE gift from Carami: It comes with a sixth bonus texture that isn’t on the hud. That bonus texture is the one I am wearing above, a very casual retro looking print T-shirt. Just take care to make a backup copy of the print tee, because once you change it using the hud, it is replaced with the color you have chosen. In short, Carami is giving you a great basic dark T-shirt in five colors and four variations plus a bonus printed T-shirt design! You can’t beat this kind of a thank you gift, thank you very much Carami.

One last thing I need to mention this week, the skin I am wearing is from Seven Deadly Skins. It is the free group gift for May and looks fantastic, I like it so much you will probably be seeing me in it often in the coming weeks. Seven Deadly Skins is a pay group, but the quality of their skins is excellent and the gifts and specials they have make it well worth joining. As of this moment the group is currently on sale for 50L and is a great pick up for both male and female avies. Well, I am all talked out. This blogging is nearly as hard as cartoon farming (but twice as rewarding). Until next time everyone, have fun and see you on the grid. —–WHC Riler

Mud and Bones

bones & mud

Happy Monday Fab Free’rs, I hope everyone had a great weekend! Despite it being Monday, I’m excited to be here and even more so to share some great freebies with you. Let’s get to it!

I know you see Pru wear a LOT of hair styles from Little Bones. I’ll be the first to tell you, Little Bones is my go-to shop for hair in Second Life. Not only do I love the styles, I enjoy the color options as well. The hair pictured above is the current Group Gift at Little Bones. The style is named Crimson and the gift includes the “Resort” color change hud which has a variety of fun bright color fades (think pinks, oranges, yellows, and greens). It also includes a hud to change the “scalp” color for a little added detail, or you can simply turn the scalp portion of the hair off so that there’s no visible scalp at all. Another reason I very much enjoy Little Bones is that the VIP group is one of the most generous gift-giving groups I am a member of.  I was in the store today, and I took a count of the VIP gifts still available. There are 14 FREE gifts out at Little Bones, including the current one. That said, there is a one-time fee of 100 lindens to join the group. However that’s less than 10 lindens per hairstyle! Some of the gifts are even Fat Packs that include all the color options. So, I think I’ve made my case, the 100 linden fee is completely worth it.

Next, this pretty skin Pru has on is the May group gift at MUDSkin. The skin comes in a Fat Pack of tones that includes the Native tone shown in the photo above and a wide rage of pale to dark tones. The gift is FREE, and the MUDSkin group is FREE to join. I think these lips are just lovely, and it’s not often I see group gift skins with pretty ginger/brown brows. The brows are tinted just so that I think they would match well with light brunette and darker blonde shades as well. Either way, this beautiful skin is FREE, and well worth the effort of giving it a try. I thought it looked rather good with Pru’s brightly colored hairstyle!

Here are the details, Enjoy!
