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…

Hellbeast

Hellbeast
Hey There Fab Free’rs! I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend so far. I spent most of my day grocery shopping so I think it goes without saying that I am seriously glad to be here. LOL Speaking of being glad, I’m also really glad Astrid told me about this 7Seas Fishing prize outfit at Sn@tch. Aptly named “Hellbeast” this complete outfit is a little sexy, a little sassy, and a whole lot of fun. Not to mention if you already have a 7Seas Fishing pole, and a little bit of time, it’s FREE.

I’ll be the first to admit I’m a little bit clueless about the 7 Seas Fishing, so I had Astrid give me a quick rundown on how it works. Once you purchase the casual rod for just 100 linden, you can reuse it over and over again anywhere that has a 7Seas Fishing area set up. Sn@tch has this complete “Hellbeast” outfit as a current prize.  There are 20+ pieces to this outfit, and you’ll fish for each one. Everything from the hair and horns to the shoes is part of this cool ensemble, which can be mixed and matched to be worn in more than one way. Also, the outfit is set up with the ability to be worn by both mesh avatars and classic avatars. My personal favorite part of this outfit from Sn@tch is the skirt! I included the original vendor photo below so you can get a look at all the pieces and different ways to wear them. If you like this look by Sn@tch, don’t wait to go fish for it, it’ll be gone after November 8th!

Oubliette Halloween Hunt

OublietteWelcome back to the blog Fab Free’rs! I have to say autumn is the one time of year that I am most excited about hunts in Second Life. I love all things fall or Halloween related. Maybe it’s because I was born this time of year, both in real life and in Second Life. You might laugh at me for this, but no joke, I started decorating my house for Halloween the second week in September. Haha Needless to say, I was super excited to hear about the Halloween Hunt at Oubliette.

In celebration of the season Oubliette is having a Halloween Hunt with 10 total hunt prizes hidden in the Oubliette shop and the grounds surrounding. There are 8 home furniture and decor items, and 2 lounge-wear items. Each hunt prize is just 10 lindens. There are no group tags required for this hunt, everyone can participate. There is a playful occult-ish theme to these hunt items. If you’re unfamiliar with Oubliette, the style is sometimes a tad macabre and always beautiful. Every one of the decor or furniture items in the above photo is included in this hunt from the darkly whimsical embroidery to the sleeping kitty on the rug. The black and purple Victorian era inspired chair has a few male and female sit poses, the one in the photo however is from Pru’s animation override-r.
Oubliette 2
Along with the lovely home goods, this beautiful maxi style off-the-shoulder dress and matching slippers are part of the Oubliette Home Halloween Hunt. There is something a little bit pagan and a little bit bohemian about this comfy lounge-wear. Wearing these items makes me wanna curl up with a good book and a warm mug of coffee, thankfully the coffee and books are part of the Oubliette hunt too! Both clothing items come in several sizes for easy fitting. These fun Halloween themed items will be available for hunting at Oubliette through the entire month of October. You’ll be looking for little poison bottles, and don’t forget to hunt around the grounds outside the Oubliette store as well, specifically the cemetery. Happy Hunting Fab Free!

Dress Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus)
Shoe Sizes Included: Belleza, Slink, Maitreya

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Through Heart Shaped Glasses

Holes in My Heart
Hey there Fab Free’rs! I’m back with some fun five-linden hunt gifts from the Heart Shaped Glasses Hunt. There are so many cute quality gifts on this hunt. The hunt ends September 30th. For now I picked a few of the gifts to share with you. I hope you like these 5 linden HSGH prizes as much as I do!

There’s a Hole in My Heart

First, let’s talk about how cute this chair from The Artist Shed is! It definitely has an eclectic up-cycled feel. I love the way it looks just sitting in my living room. This 5 linden HSGH prize has a single pose (not shown) and is copy so you can set out more than one.

*Hint – A few shades of grey

So Emotional
Through Heart-shaped Lenses

If you somehow missed Astrid’s post with these too-cute glasses by Kotte, you should definitely check it out here. These detailed glasses with their heart-shaped lenses are the HSGH prize at Kotte. Like all the HSGH prizes, these are just 5 lindens. They also come with a hud that lets you change part of the frames, you can choose gold or silver. The glasses also have resize scripts for easy fitting.

*Hint – That blue is getting me high and making me low.

Is My Skeleton Showing?

I love this corset by The Little Bat. It’s perfect for the upcoming Halloween season. Yes, I said season. lol Really, I’d wear this corset year-round. It comes in several mesh sizes, and includes a color change hud that gives you 12 color options for the skeleton graphic. Again, this awesome HSGH prize from The Little Bat is just 5 lindens.

*Hint – I love you so much you must kill me now…

Mesh Sizes Included: Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Standard Mesh (XS -L)

Studded Flats

Just like the little black dresses, little black flats are a wardrobe staple. These cute flats by Lindy Modern & Retro just have a bit more attitude than most! They are just half of the Heart Shaped Glasses Hunt prize at Lindy Modern & Retro. The HSGH prize includes the flats shown, and a matching pair of boots meant for classic system avatar feet. These detailed mesh flats come in 2 sizes.

*Hint – ALETA  bit of Marilyn goes a long way.

Mesh Sizes Included: Slink, Maitreya
