Rainbow Goth

Fantasy Goth
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! It’s been one of those days IRL and I’m thankful that I have my SL to escape to! I’m also super glad you’re here and I get to share some cool Goth Garage Sale Hunt finds with you. This hunt definitely caters to the gothic, wicked, and witchy among us (as the name would suggest). Pru is living out one of my goth/rockabilly fashion fantasies with this look. The GGS Hunt is a 5 linden hunt, meaning each prize is 5 linden. This hunt is taking place at the Goth Garage Sale event. The item you’ll be hunting for is a little black kitty with glowing yellow eyes. Some of the participating vendors have hidden their hunt item within their store booth. Some vendors also have their hunt item hidden on the even grounds near their booth. It was my experience that most items were “hidden in plain sight.” So keep an eye out for those glowing yellow eyes!

The Hair – I think this hairstyle from EscalateD is so fun. It’s a little bit pin-up, a little bit punk-rock, and a whole lot of fun! It is EscalateD’s 5 linden Goth Garage Sale Hunt prize. The style comes with a cool dip dye hud with dark hair that has several brightly colored “dips.” There is also a color change hud for the hair bow.

The Necklace – The Little Bat has this beautiful necklace for their Goth Garage Sale Hunt prize. Purchase their hunt prize and you will receive the neck;ace and a texture/color change hud. The hud has 14 gemstone colors to choose from. The necklace also has resize scripts.

The Septum Piercing – This simple captive bead nose ring is one of two Goth Garage Sale Hunt prizes from Astara. This silver version is just 5 linden and it includes a color change hud for the captive bead. The other Goth Garage Sale Hunt prize from Astara is the same piercing in gold.

The Pillows – These cute pillows are the OOPS Goth Garage Sale Hunt prize. For just 5 linden you get a set of unscripted decorative pillows, and a hold-able version. The hold-able version has a texture change hud so you can choose which version of the pillow you want. The decorative pillows can be manually sized.

The Dress – The mid-thigh length dress Pru is wearing is the Goth Garage Sale Hunt prize by WitchCraft. The dress includes a color/texture change hud with 3 different variations of this geometric galaxy print. This 5L prize comes in sizes to fit Maitreya Lara, Slink Physique, Slink Hourglass, and eBody.

The Nails – The intentionally chippy manicure Pru has is from the Goth Garage Sale Hunt prize by Dark Passions. This “Koffin” nails hud gives you 6 vampy pastel polish shades in a chipped or solid option. The appliers will work for fingernails as well as toenails. There is a Slink applier, a Maitreya applier, and an Omega applier included.

Here are the details, enjoy!

A Somber Moment

A Somber Moment

Happy Thursday Fab Free!

I hope everyone is having a fantastic week! I know I am, except today is grocery shopping day, bleh! Today I thought I would rummage through my inventory and see what I had to share with all of you today. I found a Salt and Pepper group gift and had to put it on. This freebie is from October, but still sassy, mixed in with a whole lot of sexy. The Gwen dress very much has a Halloween theme in mind, but I simply say who cares! I look good wearing it, so I am going to flaunt it. The Salt and Pepper in-world group is $300L to join, but will also give you 10% off in store purchases, excluding gachas, gift cards and event items.

The texture on this dress is outstanding, I love satin, it’s always so soft and falls on the curves just right. Salt and Pepper is known for their more edgy style, I know they are one of my first go-to places, when I want something that pushes the limits. The dress plunges low in the back and is accented with spider-webs, now I am terrified of spiders, but I can over look them for this! The front also dips low and has decorative webs, to accent all the right places. I love this free group gift and I can’t understand why I didn’t wear it sooner!

Salt and Pepper- Gwen Dress Sizing:

  • Maitreya
  • Slink- Hourglass
  • Belleza- Freya

The Gwen dress also comes with a color HUD. The HUD includes 5 colors, black, red, white/cream, pink and a grayish brown. The free group gift also has a blood stained option, if you so wish. Again, Halloween! Gosh, I love that day! Don’t forget to wear your tag, to receive your gift!

Born Sinner

Born Sinner
Hello Fab Free’rs! Ignore the expression on Pru’s face, I’m happy you’re here! I initially thought the expression looked kinda cool with this sassy group gift dress from OOPS. After closer inspection, I think the expression paired with this pose and hair makes it look like Pru is really disgusted with her braid. Hahaha Oh well! Speaking of group gifts, these curved horns are a group gift from Psycho Barbie. Keep reading and I’ll give you all the info about these awesome group gifts.

The Horns – It’s never been a secret, I love horns. These horns come in classic black and can be resized via touch menu. One of the things I like about these group gift horns from Psycho Barbie is that they are individually placed. What I mean is, there’s a right horn and a left horn, they can be positioned and resized individually. To get yours head over to Psycho Barbie and join the in world group.  there is a one time join fee of 50 lindens. You’ll find this gift on a shelf with several other previous group gifts.

The Dress – I like that this provocative dress is a little bit goth and a little bit punk rock. It is a recent group gift at OOPS. With this gift you’ll get the dress in 2 versions, one with a plaid skirt (shown), and a second one with a black skirt that has little white crosses. Both dresses say “Born Sinner” at the waist. They also come in several mesh sizes. The OOPS group has a one time join fee of just 10 linden and there is more than one group gift currently available.
Mesh Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Tonic (Curvy, Fine)

Cyber Bats

Cyber Bats
Hellooo Fab Free’rs! As you can see by the photos above, I’ve been having some fun with several freebies and cheapies I found recently. I want to say right away that each of them is very time sensitive so if you like them do not wait to pick them up! Keep reading and I’ll give you all the infos!

That Hair!

Each of the two hairstyles shown above are part of the single Finders Keepers/St. Patrick’s Day Hunt. There have been a many other recent posts showing Finders Keepers Hunt items, I’ll list the others below. These super cool hairstyles are from A&Y Cybernetics. You’ll be hunting a little pot of gold. The hunt ends March 24th, so again do not wait! The hint for A&Y’s post of gold is “golden light of the firefly beckons gold.” In the FREE hunt gift at A&Y you’ll get the Lucia hair (left) and the Dext hair (right). The Lucia hair comes with a “no tubes” version. The Dext hair is technically a male hairstyle. It has a set of system layer hair bases and an Omega applier hair base.

P.S. I had a little help from a loyal Fab Free reader finding this hunt prize, so I’ll pay it forward to you. The key word in the hint is “Firefly”. I hope that helps. Happy Hunting!

Everyone Loves a Scandal

Scandal

Hey There Fab Free! I hope everyone’s week is off to a good start so far. Mine has been joyously uneventful! For now I’m happy to be sharing this group gift top from Julia’s Scandal and these cute group gift ears from Pumec. I think they pair well together for a super cute casual look.

The Top – The corset-like belt really makes what would otherwise be a plain tee shirt seriously cute. I think this “top” by Julia’s Scandal is actually meant as a dress, but to be perfectly frank, Pru’s got too much booty for that! haha The top comes in the black and purple version shown as well as a white and blue version. I wore the dress/top from Julia’s Scandal with some plain black leggings and I think it’s real cute on. The bottom of the tee has enough flair to fit over the leggings. To get your copy of this cute gift, join the FREE Julia’s Scandal group and click this group gift vendor. Also this gift includes an alpha layer so it is compatible with classic avatars!

Mesh Sizes Included: eBody (Curvy, Fine), Maitreya Lara, Standard Fitted Mesh, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Slink (Hourglass, Physique)

The Ears – I want to start by saying that I was not sure what to expect from these mesh ears by Pumec. Now that I have tried them for myself, I highly recommend them. This set of ears is a current group gift at Pumec. They include a color change hud with several preset skintones, and the ability to adjust the skintone to match your skin. There are also a few color options for the piercings. They are also able to be sized using the same hud. The Pumec group has a join fee of 299 linden. There are several additional past group gifts available including a different pair of ears.

Here are the details, enjoy!

Rocking the Unboxing

Rocking the Unboxing

I was hanging around in my photo studio after one of my shopping jaunts.  I generally hate unpacking things after these (frequent) sprees.  Do you have that issue too?  I unpack and then try on my new stuff right away to get over the trauma of all the unboxing my poor little fingers have to go through 😉  The fact that my finds are often free helps me through this tedious task too!

Dark Beauty

My look today is inspired by the fun finds I uncovered at Beauty of Darkness.  This store specializes in the darker side of fashion (hence the name of the store – duh Aline) and they have a generous number of free gifts out as well as a few lucky chairs.  I picked up the Mad Cat socks and the Beauty in Darkness top for free by joining the free group!  They’ve got all sorts of stuff you can mix and match for a bit of a goth look.  Also, yay cats!  The top and tights are appliers and come with Classic System Layers, a TMP applier, and an all-in-one HUD that has options for most mesh bodies.

Another Day, Another Scandal

I was revisiting a few hidden gems in SL, and headed back to Julia’s Scandal.  They’ve got all sorts of new free gifts out including this super adorable and frilly skirt (it comes with a matching bra).  The Venus skirt has several HUD options, including a few lacy looks, and different colours.  Love it!  The Julia’s Scandal group is currently free to join!

Sizes

  • Ebody
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Standard Fitted Mesh

/me surreptitiously hides the other boxes to be unpacked under the couch.

I’m just going to keep this outfit on for a bit longer!

Fab Free Designer Friday – 01/12/2018 – Deadly Nightshade

Deadly Nightshade
Hello Fab Free’rs, and welcome back to the blog for another edition of Fab Free Designer Friday. This week I get to talk about Deadly Nightshade. Not the plant, the shop! Deadly Nightshade is self-described as “bringing you quality avatar accessories of the magical and otherworldly varieties.” After browsing the shop, I felt like it was a sort of Second Life version of an Occult shop. At Deadly Nightshade you’d purchase accessories and other items to aid in an otherworldly or magical appearance. Most of the items I encountered are unisex as well, so the guys can get accessorized also.

The Deadly Nightshade shop has a very minimalist setup with signage on the floor guiding you to different types of merchandise. There are walking accessories, wearable auras, gachas, and more to explore. I even spotted a tiny bit of women’s clothing, and some decor. The landing point is a round central room where you’ll find everything you need in regards to shop information, group gifts, and events. Fitting with the round room, the circulation desk at Deadly Nightshade is also round. You’ll want to check out the desk, it’s where you’ll find the Fabulously Free in SL group gift. Both the Fab Free group and the Deadly Nightshade group are FREE to join. So if you’re looking for something different, something magical perhaps, you won’t want to miss out on these Fabulous FREEBies!

All Dressed in Black Black Black

All Dressed in Black
We made it through Christmas Fab Free! What a fun but hectic holiday! Christmas may be over, but there’s still plenty of reasons to celebrate and have a good time. New Years Eve is coming up in just a few days. I personally always look for gold and silver sparkly things to wear for a New Years Eve party. This year I like the idea of this calf-length black dress from CHAIN and these stiletto booties from Hilly Haalan, both in black. Not only are they ultra sexy, they are FREE group gifts just in time for a party.

CHAIN

This dress. I don’t think I really need to gush about how pretty it is. Right now it is one of several FREE group gifts at CHAIN. The CHAIN in world group has a one time join fee of 100 linden.  The Sally Dress comes with a color change hud that lets you pick from black, silver, or violet. There are also 2 versions of the dress, one with the body chains as shown in the photo above, and one without.

Mesh Size Included: Maitreya Lara Only

Hilly Haalan

I wasn’t sure how these detailed ankle boots would look with the Sally dress when I picked them up as a group gift at Hilly Haalan. Honestly, I love the two together. I think you could just as easily wear these awesome shoes with a pair of fitted jeans and a swanky top. These shoes are one of three group gifts currently available at Hilly Haalan. The Hilly Haalan group is FREE to join at this time, and all the group gifts are conveniently located at the landing point.

Shoe Sizes Included: Belleza, Maitreya, Slink, N-Core, TMP

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Merry Gothmas

Merry Gothmas
Hey There Fab Free’rs! I hope you’re enjoying the weekend. I know I am enjoying this slightly naughty goth Christmas outfit thanks to group gifts from Pink Hustler, Queenz, and the current Fab Free group gift from Liquid. It feels festive and flirty, like a fun holiday party with friends or date night look. So bring on the eggnog and the Christmas music!

Pink Hustler

These cute braids with the Santa hat and ribbons at the ends are a FREE group gift at Pink Hustler. I really like the look of this style, especially the little strands in the front. They style includes a hud that gives you several “natural” hair color options, and an additional set of pretty pastels. The same hud will also let you pick from red, green, brown, or black for the hat and ribbons. The Pink Hustler group is currently 400 linden to join. I know that sounds like a lot, and it is, however there are quite a few group gifts still available. So if you have the lindens to spare, the Pink Hustler group is worth it in my opinion.

Liquid

To keep my all black holiday ensemble from being too, well all black, I picked up the current Fabulously Free in SL group gift at Liquid. The cute holly leaf face decal is one of 3 holiday themed options in this applier gift. Along with the holly leaves you can choose from a bell, a candy cane. Additionally, each image can be applied in color or black outline only. To get your copy of this fun FREE holiday gift, just wear your Fab Free group tag and click the gift vendor at Liquid.

Appliers Included: Catwa, Lelutka

Queenz

This group gift dress from Queenz is the naughty part of the ensemble. What’s so naughty about a sweater dress you ask? This particular dress has long peek-a-boo openings down each side. That bit of hip Pru’s flashing isn’t a wardrobe malfunction. The dress comes in 3 colors, black, brown, and navy. The Queenz in world group is FREE to join at this time. You’ll find this FREE group gift and others waiting on the right side of the shop.

Mesh Sizes Included: Slink Hourglass, Maitreya Lara, eBody Curvy, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus)

Ho Ho No

Ho Ho No

After my outing with the so-called “Count” turned out to be a bit of a letdown (Read about it HERE), I got a bit Bah Humbug about all the partying going on around me.  It’s all tinsel this, and jingle that.  I again searched through my closet to find something suitably moody for my Grinchy mood, and of course nothing fit the bill.  Good thing Oubliette has me covered!

Hello Darkness

I ambled down to my favourite shop nestled in a graveyard, and much to my delight I found several new group gifts on the wall.  I picked up the Hamsa T-Neck top, and Muertos skirt which echoed my morose feelings quite well.  There were also these lovely Onyx Lennon Specs to block out the light of any too-cheerful holiday display.   Best of all, they were all free!  The Oubliette Group is free to join, so get yourself down to the graveyard!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus
  • TMP (skirt only)

Tortured Beauty

I now clearly needed some witchy locks to mirror the dark mood within, so I found my way to Sintiklia, where there are several group gift hairstyles out for the taking.  The Raphael hairstyle is sleek, and comes in a whole fatpack of colours.  You can’t say no to that!  The Sintiklia group is currently 100L to join.

After getting my goth on, I started to feel a bit peckish.  Wait….do I see Egg Nog and Cookies over there?  Hmm… maybe my Holiday spirit hasn’t completely died out…
