Laundry Day

 

Laundry Day
Hi Again Fab Free’rs! I call this look “when it’s laundry day but you still wanna look cute for Easter.” hahaha Really, I had a lot of fun with a few more finds from The Rotten Egg Hunt, and this fun “Need Laundry” pose by DANU. I picked up this cute top at The Rotten Egg Hunt, it’s by Secret Oktober. Also while at The Rotten Egg Hunt I picked up a really pretty crescent shaped bindi by Valika Rituals. Keep reading for all the details about these fabulous finds. Also, Aline’s sweet sleepy self has been doing some Rotten Egg Hunting, to see what she found check out her post “Sleepy Times.”

The Pose – This fun laundry pose is a Marketplace find by DANU. It’s just 37 linden and it includes a pose-ball pose, and the laundry basket prop. The basket comes white, but I tinted it darker. I also needed to shrink it down to fit between Pru’s hand and hip, which was easy to in edit mode since the basket does not have any scripts. Have fun, and do your laundry!

The Top – Secret Oktober has 5 versions of this cropped bunny sweater at The Rotten Egg Hunt. I was excited to find the number 5 egg and get the bunny with the spider. It felt a little bit like Easter and a little bit like Halloween, which suits my exceedingly eclectic tastes. lol These tops are just 10 linden each, and come in a Maitreya fit only.

The Bindi – This pretty little bindi by Velika Rituals is one of the dollarbie Rotten Egg Hunt prizes. At just 1 linden, it is way too nice to pass up. I’m loving accessories that are free of scripts like this one, sometimes simple really is best. You can resize, and even change the color of this bindi by using the edit menu. Just don’t forget to make a copy first!

She Dunnit!

Details to follow

 

Happy Sunday Fabulousnesses, Zsa brings you a rather glamourously gruesome offering today.

Zsa’s Bloody Outfit

Strangely enough, Zsa appears to be one of the few people on SL that doesn’t like Halloween.  However, when she saw the new group gift from Belle Epoque. she begged me to let her blog it.  I must admit it is very impressively made, I particularly appreciate the edging on the shawl which gives it an ethereal quality.

The outfit is fitted exclusively for Maitreya and consists of separate skirt, top, skirt and shawl.  The gift is free, but the group does cost 10L to join – however, there are a number of other (non bloody) free group gifts available so it is well worth joining.

Greyscale

My hair today is the latest group gift from Navy & Copper, the gift is free and the group is also free to join.  It comes in a fatpack so there is plenty of choice but I again went with one of the grayscale shades which Navy & Copper do so well.

 

What is Zsa wearing? 

Mesh Body:  Maitreya Lara
Mesh Head:  Catwa Catya
Applier: Pink Fuel Alabaster
Lipstick and eye shadow:  Alaskametro Wytch Makeup Palette
Eyes: Avi-Glam Solstice
Hair: Navy & Copper ConPanna (free group gift / 0L / free to join)
Gown:  Belle Epoque Halloween Queen (free group gift / 0L / 10L to join)
Pose & Prop: Nantra Mr Pointy

A sprinkle of silver

Details to follow

Hello again FabFree’ers!  I hope you have all had a good week and will have an even better weekend.

Zsa’s gown today is a free group gift from a new to me store. Art & Fashion.  This is just one of a whole display of group gifts in the store, you will find them directly in front of you as you land.  However, be aware that there are 2 groups, one a paid VIP group and one free, and this dress is available with the free group tag.  It comes in 5 standard fitmesh sizes (no alpha), plus Maitreya, Belleza and Slink – however it does not specify which of the Belleza and Slink bodies it fits.  It has a very skeletal, gothic feel, so would be ideal for the upcoming spooky season.

What is Zsa wearing? 

Mesh Body:  Maitreya Lara
Mesh Head:  Catwa Catya
Applier: Pink Fuel Alabaster
Lipstick and eye shadow:  Alaskametro Wytch Makeup Palette
Eyes: Avi-Glam Solstice
Hair: Navy & Copper Cinnamon (free group gift / 0L / free to join) blogged here by Serena 
Dress:  Art & Fashion Gothika (group gift / 1L refunded / free to join)
Necklace & Earrings: Pure Poison Black Arachnide
Bracelet: Maxi Gossamer Voodoo Rocker

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)

Here are the details, enjoy!

The Lady is a Vamp

The Lady is a Vamp

Sometimes I feel a bit vampy, and it calls for red hair and a whole lotta latex.  When I get into this mood, there’s only one place to go – D’eVil!  The best thing about these high-gloss items is the fact that they’re completely free! 

The D’eVil Inside

D’eVil is a special little shop that is quite small, but crams a heck of a lot of really great clothes, boots and other interesting finds inside.  I remember being completely shocked when I walked through the door to see that everything in the store is 100% free.  Yes, you read that right.  The owner, Dariana, says that she has “nothing to sell, only to give away” because “having someone smile is the greatest thing in the world”.   Well, I sure did smile looking around the store.  There are several dresses, different kids of shoes, and a few adult-themed items, all priced at 0L.

Shine on, You Crazy Diamond

In the photo above, I am wearing the Jani dress, which has several versions inside the box, all in different transparency rates.  If you’re feeling daring, that is! It also comes in leather, for days where you want a bit more coverage.  This dress is a Maitreya Lara exclusive.    The Via boots are quite versatile, you could even wear them with an oversized sweater for a unique look.  They come with a texture HUD so you can choose from many colours to match your outfit or mood!  There is also a leather version included in the box.  These are also a Maitreya Lara exclusive.   The texturing on the clothes really is top notch, and sometimes I catch myself staring at the shine!

Well, there you have it Fab Free – get out there and get your shine on!

What’s Lurking in My Bedroom?!

The Creeps_001

I’m just relaxing on my new furniture courtesy of StoraxTree and the Horror Hunt. At first glance, this 1L prize is just an innocent 4 prim bedroom set (all one piece when you set it down and with lots of great details)… but it has five  poses total, four of which are rather creepy (see below!) This bedroom set will make a neat (temporary?) Halloween addition to your home if you are into decorating and for just 1L

The Creeps_002

More Hunting

I also hunted down this Gothika Red Straps Dress at Moonstar. I really love the color and detailing and it’s a perfect fit. It comes in all the sizes you could need and all you’ll need to spend is a little time hunting as part of the Horror Romantic Hunt and 1 little Linden!

Sizes Available:

  • Fitmesh XS – L
  • TMP
  • eBody
  • Ocacin
  • Tonic – Fine & Curvy
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

The Creeps_003

New Heels

My last hunt find was also 1L and part of the Horror Romantic Hunt. I fell in love with these Italian Nights heels from Loordes of London. They fit Slink high feet and are a dream and match the dress from Moonstar perfectly. Pick these up for a little hunting time (they are super easy to find) and 1L!

Happy H(a)unting!

The White Cliffs

The White Cliffs_001

I’ve been in an “Edgar-Allan-Poe”-type-melancholy-mood lately. It led me to visit an art sim called “The White Cliffs of Dover.” It’s a fairly simple sim. It really is just a set of barren cliffs with a couple of planes, a tea shop and grasslands. Somehow, though, it is incredibly beautiful in its simplicity. I find that when I am melancholy, I crave simplicity. It helps me keep life in perspective.

Since I was in a melancholy mood, I decided to try out the Quoth the Raven Hunt and see what I came up with (hurry, the hunt ends September 30th). I visited Lunaria and hunted down the creator’s prize which is an incredibly beautiful gown… which I would argue is Edgar Allan Poe inspired. Or at least certainly Raven inspired.

The gown

The gown Branwen, by Lunaira, is a seemingly simple formal navy blue gown will a full skirt, until you take a closer look. It has an add-on feather belt and the skirt itself is covered in both texture and add-on prim feathers for a stunning and beautiful look. The overall mesh flow of the dress is superb. Hunt down the raven icon and pay just 1L for this gem of a dress to add to your wardrobe.

Sizes available:

  • Fitmesh XS – L
  • TMP
  • Slink
  • Maitreya
  • Belleza

Do you believe in magic?

Do you believe in magic_001

TWE12VE is a new event this year that begins on the 12th of each month. To celebrate their first year, creators are giving gifts for just 12L each at their booths. I’m here to show you a few of the fantastic finds I picked up when I went to check out the goings on!

Do you believe?

I believe in magic! And tee shirts! I’ve become an avid fan of JellyRoll clothing since I discovered the cute brand, and JellyRoll is at TWE12VE with a few new releases as well as a 12L gift. Their gift, which you can pick up for just 12L, is a texture change tee called Magic that comes with a hud with four different textures. I’ve included the vendor advertisement at the end of this post so you can see all the textures available. It comes in several sizes to accommodate many mesh body types as well!

Sizes available:

  • Standard sizes XS – XL
  • TMP
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Tonic – Fine & Curvy
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Something magical

I stopped by the Adorably Strange Wares booth and picked up their 12L gift and was thrilled with what I found when I unpacked the box. I rezzed it out and discovered that it was floor glitter! You can get a pretty good idea of the look of it in the picture above, but the picture doesn’t really do it justice. The floor glitter shimmers, glitters, and moves just like magic and a swatch of it that covers a fairly good sized area is only 3 prim to set out. The gift is copiable so you can set out as many as you need to decorate your area!

Last touches

I finished off my look with a gift from Indigenous Designs. For just 12L, I picked up their gift box and this Rose Choker was in the box. There were two in the box actually… one in gold and one in silver. I’m wearing the silver in the picture above. The details on this choker are really pretty and it makes a nice final touch to a casual outfit (or perhaps for a more formal date?). Either way, I was charmed by its look!

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
