Before and After

IMG_2289

Cheerio gang!

This post is not your typical before and after.  Oh gosh I *do* love me a before and after, you know when they do makeovers?  It is one of my fondest wishes to one day get a makeover by professionals.  Alas.  But I love a makeover, it’s always so exciting to see what changes they make and how awesome whomever or whatever they were working on came out!

This is kind of a reverse before and after to showcase the awesome goodies I got at the Arcade Event, courtesy of Pare’.  Now, if you want to get all the juicy details of how the new system at the arcade works, I spelled it all out in my previous post here.  With that out of the way, let’s get on to the fun stuff, the goodies!  The machine for Pare’ is called Night Crawlers and is 75L a play and I had to come back on subsequent days to get both the outfits I was lucky enough to grab.  The above was the pink, which I love.  The below photo shows the Halloween version which I was lucky enough to get on my second day try.  I was originally going to just blog the pink one, but when I got the Halloween one as well, I couldn’t resist combining the two.

So, what exactly do I call my before and after?  The first photo, above, is before the Zombie Apocalypse, the second photo before is, well, after, obviously, and our brave heroine can tell she has become outnumbered and she is about to become Zombie herself.  Notice how she is biting her lip in distress?  So she has gone from geek chic to zombie hunter.

As I stated in my previous post, you choose the size you want to play for in the machine and I chose Maitreya Lara as that is what I wear.

Lessons learned by our lovely heroine… a gun works better than an axe when fighting zombies.  Unfortunately.

Don’t Let it End

Coming Soon

Hey FabFree! I hope you are all keeping well and not having the August blues. I admit I am a bit because I just don’t want to summer to end! I know I talked about Autumn in my last post and although fall weather is my fave all the summer holidays ending and going back to work is definitely not my favourite. Time to hit to beach again as many times as possible and party hard before I have to hit the grind of hard work again!

Many Gifts @ Psycho Barbie 

All the gifts I am showing today are from Psycho Barbie. This is an amazing store, and if you join their group for 100 Linden you can grab a whole bunch of their previous group gifts. Some of the group gifts I am showing from Psycho Barbie include:

  • The amazing and cool Yoko sunglasses, which come with several patterns and words on the glasses. I love these. 
  • The finger-length silver rings I have one. So detailed! 
  • The gorgeous henna tattoos on my arms. I love these and they are BOM. 

I am also wearing the TeleportHub gift at Psycho Barbie, which is this great collar with the crescent moon on it. If you join the TeleportHub group for only 10 Linden you can get this lovely collar gift. You can change the colour of the crescent moon to a myriad of colours via a hud!

Enjoy, FabFree!

Cruel to be kind

Fabfree Post: Cruel to be kind
You gotta be cruel to be kind

In the right measure, but we should all do our best to uplift and brighten everyone’s days within limits. Don’t ever put yourself in danger of losing the spark that makes you shine brightly in a world of darkness. Making people smile is always a great step to spreading joy like a horrible fad, but keep it going don’t just stop because you don’t know the person, they could be having a hard day today and your random act of kindness could be what saves them.

So if you happen to see me out and about on the grid, say hi to me or tell me a joke and I’ll do the same. Sometimes we all get wrapped up in our own “show friends only” world that we forget we are all here together. Spread some love and light today for me xoxo

 

Salem

[Salem] released their January Free Group Gift and let me say I adore them in every way! Their Winter Glasses are resizable and unrigged so you can adjust them to fit your face. It comes with a hud so you can also change the frame to 6 different colors as well as 20 color options for the lanyard.

The Group Fee is L$199 but they also have past gifts out which makes up for the cost.

Cheeky Elf

Hello there Fab Free’rs. Thank you so much for being here. I cannot even handle how close to Christmas we are! I’m also finding myself both excited and overwhelmed by all the giftiness (yes I know that’s not a word) around the grid. There are so many events and advents and hunts, it’s a lot! For this post I picked up free gifts from Mister Razzor, BONDI, and IDTTY at Access, and a fun Marketplace find by The Bold Llama. Keep reading for all the details!

Mister Razzor

I think it goes without saying that Mister Razzor is a favorite tattoo shop of mine. At the current round of Access, Mister Razzor has the cutest holiday face tattoo for free. It has pretty little snowflakes near your eyes, and says “let it go.” This tattoo comes in a BOM tattoo layer only. It also comes in white as well as black. You’ll need to join the free-to-join Access event group to get this and the many other free gifts. Just look for the blue gift boxes at each vendor booth.

BONDI

These unisex wire-frame glasses are the free Access group gift by BONDI at the Access event. The glasses have resize scripts, and include a color change hud with 4 preset choices for the frames and 4 the metal parts of the frames. The same hud also allows you to adjust the opacity of the lenses.

IDTTY

Also at Access, is this lovely matte lip-color by IDTTY. This lipstick shade is one of 4 subtle matte shades in the free “Real Love Collection” gift by IDTTY. This lipstick giftset comes in appliers for Catwa, Genus, and Lelutka heads only.

The Bold Llama

Lastly, I couldn’t resist this cute holiday top by The Bold Llama that I stumbled across on the Marketplace. This cute tank-top is just 25 linden, and if “cheeky” doesn’t suit you, you’ll find quite a few other choices like “Queen” and “Lit.” Each of these fun festive tops comes in quite a few sizes, and has an alpha layer so it can be worn by classic avatars.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Ocacin, Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), EBody, Tonic (Curvy, Fine), TMP, Classic Mesh (xs-XL) + Alpha Layer

Video Games

Video Games

I can’t imagine anyone being at all surprised that I’m super nerdy a lot of the time and pretty proud of it too! This is also a specific instance in which I am perfectly okay with perpetuating a few stereotypes. Gaming headsets are nerd gear. Gamers are nerdy, and it is awesome. Glasses are sexy, and also nerdy. The two go together ladies and gents! Books, especially on a bookshelf with photos of space, also nerdy. I love it! lol Lastly, I happen to be wearing a group gift romper, which may not be a nerdy stereotype but it is super comfortable. Keep reading and I’ll tell you all about my nerdilicious finds. Also, please don’t take any offense to my name calling. In my mind being a nerd is not a bad thing, and this is all meant to be in fun and not judgmental in anyway. ❤

Spoiled 

If you head to the back of the Spoiled store you’ll see some rather racy gamer girl outfits with accessories. One of those accessories are these winged gaming headphones. They come in a fatpack of color options with choices for coloring 2 parts of the headset, and they are completely free. Just buy them for nada, zip, zilch, zero linden.

BND

These adorably nerdy glasses are another Marketplace find by BND. These “Vintage” beauties by BND can be yours for just 4 linden. They also have a color change hud with options for the frames, lenses, and stem ends.

Someone Stole My Sign

The Geeks Unite event (a childrens/teens event) starts August 7th and runs for a few weeks. At this event you can pick up this “nerd” bookshelf set by Someone Stole My Sign (SSMS) for just 1 linden. The gift also includes an ottoman (not shown).

Chic Moda 

This cute low-cut romper is the August group gift at Chic Moda. This gift comes in three sizes, and has a texture change hud with six choices. The Chic Moda group is 150 linden to join.

Sizes Included: Slink Hourglass, Maitreya Lara, MeshBody Legacy

Seaside Retreat

Seaside Retreat

MMmmm smell that salty air and feel that ocean breeze. Nothing like getting out of the city and to the coast. Here in Second Life that is. I took Pru on a little seaside retreat to get outta the house. We needed a change of scenery and to be free of the fur babies for a while. As the sun came up, I let her sleep in. I took a walk down to the nearest coffee shop and got us both a refreshing cold brewed boba treat from Movement.

Man Cave Anniversary Gifts

When on vacation no matter how short you gotta look the part. My outfit is composed of Man Cave Event Anniversary gifts. I couldn’t pass up sharing them with you guys.

My head skin is Drake by Stray Dog in tone 04. The sweet lined cut bread is from OKARA. The trending porn stache Mustache is from none other than Mister Razzor. This cool oval shades are made by Decision and come with a colour changing HUD for all the parts. This nautical type necklace, well choker comes by way of Lapointe & Bastchild it’s unisex. Even the ladies are welcome to grab it and wear it. Ascend has this nice draped shoulder shirt that comes with a 10 colour changing HUD.

I’m not usually one for wearing tattoos. When they’re free and look this good, I had to tell you all about it. The tattoo “Hidden Inside” comes in an appliers HUD for Omega, Belleza, and Maitreya. There is also a TMP installer. IDTTY even included BOM layers as well. The pearl type bracelet is by Dope+Mercy. It comes in white and black for both wrists. We all know this store is great with accessories.
I know by now your eyeing my shorts. These well textured colored summery shorts are named Issac, and they are made by Cubura. A great addition to your summer look. Lastly my brightly colored sneakers are from Betrayal. You get a fatpack of colors for both men and women. Teleport on over to The Man Cave Event, join the free group, and click them beer cans. You have until July 11th to grab them all. It looks like sleeping beauty is finally waking up. I’m gonna go enjoy the rest of our retreat. Catch y’all later.

Summertime: Bubblegum Pink & Lime Green!

Summertime: Bubblegum Pink & Lime Green

Hey Fab Free, how’s it going? I am loving the colour combo of the look I have going today: bubblegum pink and lime green! It’s so summery!

That Romper!

This fabulous romper is the current VIP group gift at Pacagaia. It comes with several floral patterns and bright summery colours. My favourite pattern out of the bunch was the green colour and pattern, but overall this is just a lovely gift! Their VIP group costs 100 Linden to join.

I ❤ Kitty Chairs

I actually got this adorable “Little Kitten” chair for free at Blueberry. No group is needed to get the gift- just click on the chair by the group gifts and it’s yours for free! It has some adorable sitting poses included with the chair too.

Summertime: Bubblegum Pink & Lime Green II

Awesome Shades

These cool aviator sunglasses are the current June group gift at Donni’s Dollies! Join their free group to grab these sunglasses for free. In addition to these specs, there is also a pair of blue glasses in the same style included with the gift.

Thanks for reading, Fab Free!

A Night In

A Night In

I’ve been feeling indulgent today, feeling the need to drag myself up out of the doldrums quarantine can sometimes bring me to. What better way to self-indulge than to wander through Tres Chic while it’s full of free gifts (thanks to this being an anniversary round)?! Aline gorgeously showed off a few of the generous Tres Chic group gifts in her post “Back in the Day“, and I wanted to share just a few more while they are still available. The Tres Chic group is free to join, just wear the tag and click the gift boxes to get your freebies.

Elven Elder

My lavender trimmed hoodie is the Tres Chic gift by Elven Elder. Purple, and just about every shade thereof, is a favorite color of mine, so this freebie is a need. It comes in the color shown with a few size options. It also comes with a hud that lets you adjust the materials and glossiness of the hoodie.

Sizes Included: Legacy, Belleza (Isis, Freya), Maitreya Lara

BH9

These cool blocky glasses are the free Tres Chic event gift by BH9, they come with clear lenses like shown, and with dark lenses. They are unisex, and can be sized via touch menu.

One of those days

FabFree Post: One of those days

One of those days

From the moment I woke up this morning my day has been upside down and no amount of coffee will help. However, taking a peek at Flickr I did see some amazing FREE GIFTS! First up are these cute glasses from RODEX they come in three color options, Gold, Silver, and Pink. I chose to see the world through Rose Colored Glasses today until the coffee kicks in. You can pick up your pair at RODEX and get the FREE GROUP at the landing point.

After spending some much-needed R&R on the couch today I slipped into this lovely skirt and bodysuit gift from Normandy. Both bodysuit and skirt have color hud to change your vibe and look to match. The dark teal color was one of the preset options and I fell in love with it. Not too shabby for FREE either, the lace on the bodysuit is spot-on perfect and the pack comes with a net option as well.
