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

Sci-Fi and Sunglasses

Sci Fi... and Boots

I’m feeling a little sci-fi and fantasy all at the same time today… and the elements of the gifts I picked out could be used for different genres of everyday wear or roleplay gear depending upon how you paired them with outfits or other details (I think that’s why I love these gifts so much).

The Heart Shaped Sunglasses Hunt started today and I think there are some really fabulous gifts to be had. I’m showing off two of them in this post alone, and hope to show off a few more that I have my eye on.

Thigh High

These Thigh High boots by Have Unequal immediately caught my attention and won my approval and I was thrilled when I tried them on. They say “wool” but to me they look leather with a “wool” sock sort of sticking out the top. They will only cost you 5L and a little hunting time at the Have Unequal main-store and when you unpack the box you’ll find boots to fit Maitreya, Slink Hourglass, and Slink Physique mesh bodies. These boots would be slick for some Sci-fi roleplay or other types of RP… or just for wearing and not roleplaying 😉

Speaking of Hearts

Since I was on the heart trail, I also picked up the 5L prize from Kotte, which happens to be this great pair of heart shaped sunglasses in “sea”. They come with a hud that allows you to change the metal detailing on the glasses to either silver or gold. If you click on the flickr picture and zoom in, you can see that their is a little Gothic cross on the sides of the glasses.

A touch of fantasy

While I was at Kotte I accidentally scrolled my mouse and cammed inside another store and found my camera locked onto a group gift at a new-to-me store called {Ghoul}. Immediately I knew I had to have the Dragonglass Back Gems! They emit a soft purple light and would be great for fantasy, medieval, or sci-fi roleplay… or just for fun. The group is 50L to join, and there was another group gift beside the back gems, a photo body glow. The gems come in sizes to fit several mesh bodies, including a male mesh body!

Back Gem Sizes Available:

  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Isis & Freya
  • Belleza – Jake

Zombie Suicide Temporary FREE Group Join!

Zombie Suicide 2
Hello Fab Free! I’m super excited because I recently found out Zombie Suicide has made their in world group FREE to join for just a few days. Don’t ask me how long a few day is. I have no idea, so hurry! If you’re not familiar with the Zombie Suicide brand, it’s the definition of creepy cute clothing and accessories. You’ll really find a little bit of everything including clothing, jewelry, and makeup. Zombie Suicide group members get a 25% discount on all Zombie Suicide merchandise purchased while wearing the group tag. Also, there is an entire wall of FREE group gifts, and there are group only lucky letter boards. So along with sharing the news of Zombie Suicide’s temporary FREE group join, I also want to show off a few of the many group gifts.

I Heart Cardigans

This cozy cardigan is one of the many FREE group gifts at Zombie Suicide. It’s fully mesh and includes a color change hud that will allow you to choose between the purple color shown and and a black version. The black version mirrors the purple in that it has little purple hearts above the pockets.

Mesh Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, TMP, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Standard Mesh (xxs – L)

Zombie Suicide

Two Hearts

The cute necklace with the thin heart dangles is not one of the many group gifts, but rather a dollarbie hunt prize I stumbled across while shopping at Zombie Suicide. This prize also includes a color change hud so you can choose the color of each of the 2 hearts. There are 8 color options. I’m honestly not sure what hunt this necklace is from, but the little blue basket hunt item was easy to find considering I wasn’t even looking for it. *Hint, look low.

Choker

The choker Pru is wearing is a FREE group gift version of a choker/collar you can purchase at Zombie Suicide. It comes in several mesh sizes and includes a scripted version that has resize scripts and a non scripted version. The colors are a fun combination of purple, black, and green.

Facial Piercings

These pretty purple dermal piercings combined with the two nose studs are another FREE group gift at Zombie Suicide. These fit my Catwa mesh head very easily, which is always a plus. Additionally, there are 2 versions included in this gift, one with a shadow and one without (shown).

The Eyes Have It

Last but far from least, the pretty jewel-toned eyes are another FREE group gift at Zombie Suicide. This gift comes with a color change HUD with 3 variations of these hauntingly pretty eyes. They also include classic system layers and an alpha layer for non mesh avatars.

The Cross I Bare

Lilac
Hello There Fab Free’rs! I’m just going to come right out and say that Stix has just provided me with my new favorite fantasy toned skin. No contest. I love the lavender shade, and it certainly doesn’t hurt that this gorgeous purple hued skin is a FREE group gift at Stix. Needless to say once I was wearing the skin I was instantly inspired to create this cool demoness look.

Yuki as Syx

This fabulously generous group gift at Stix includes classic system layers with options for cleavage/nipples, nether regions,  and brows. Additionally there is a full set of appliers. While the body and head appliers are Omega based, they are specifically done to fit each of the different body types (Slink Pysique, Slink Hourglass, Maitreya, Belleza) rather than using one texture for all. The Stix group is FREE to join at this time. So if you aren’t already a PixyStix group member, no need to worry you can still get this amazing gift for FREE since there is not a group join fee all you need is group space!

Appliers Included: All in One Hud – Omega Appliers (Head & Body), Mesh Ear Appliers (Bentbox, Logo, Soul Uni), Heavy Cleavage Applier

Hunting at the Goth Garage Sale

I had some help creating this cool look thanks to some hunt items I picked up at the Goth Garage Sale. The Goth Garage Sale Hunt items are just 5 lindens each, and you’ll be hunting little black cats with glowing yellow eyes. Most of them are fairly easy to find. The little yellow-eyed cats are hidden/perched around the Goth Garage Sale venue, some are even hidden in the shops. The Goth Garage Sale event and Hunt end August 8th.

This Hair is Sn@tched

This sleek long hairstyle and horns set are the Goth Garage Sale Hunt prize by Sn@tch. I was pleasantly surprised to see a hairstyle from Sn@tch. The 5 linden hunt prize includes the hairstyle Drucilla with a “Goths” color hud that has 16 goth inspired hair-color options. You’ll also get the horns which can be worn separately. Horns are set up with resize scripts.

The Cross I Bare

The heavy cross Pru is wearing is another Goth Garage Sale Hunt item, this one from Psycho Barbie. The necklace fits well, is sizable, and includes a color change hud. The color hud lets you pick between black, gold, light gold, and silver. You can hunt down your 5 linden copy of the Psycho Barbie Croix necklace at the Goth Garage Sale.
Lilac 4
I went ahead and added a second photo, not just because I had so much fun with this look, I wanted to give a closer look at the third Goth Garage Sale Hunt item I used for this look. Also, it gives you a great close-up of the Yuki as Syx group gift skin from Stix, and the beautiful texture of the horns included in the Sn@tch Goth Garage Sale Hunt prize. Plus, I love the way she looks with this mad face!

Black Pearls

This detailed facial piercing set is the Goth Garage Sale Hunt prize by Black Pearls, and probably my personal favorite of the hunt items I collected. Like all the hunt prizes, this one from Black Pearls is just 5 lindens. First I want to point out that the blades along the forehead are color change, just click one and you’ll get a drop down menu with tons of color options. With just a minor adjustment to the position, the set fit my mesh head perfectly.

Here are the details, Happy Hunting Fab Free!

Hair w/optional Horns – :::Sn@tch Drucilla Hair (Goths) & Curled Horns (Black)::: – 5L GGS Hunt Prize @Goth Garage Sale
Head –  CATWA HEAD Koura Bento
Eyes – {S0NG} :: Toki // Lilac Eye

Graveside Beauty

Graveside

I let my macabre show today and got a little Gothic. I visited the Oubliette Graveyard and lay down among the (black) rose petals between the gravestones (petals not included! They are part of my pose). However it was perfect for showing off this great Women Only Hunt gift from Oubliette.

Not just another swimsuit

This free “swimsuit” from Oubliette is not just another swimsuit… it’s a Gothic girls dream come true. It comes in black with a skeletal design on the body and could double as a body suit. Included is a free pair of Lennon round sunglasses and a black floppy straw hat (not shown) for keeping out that dreaded sun.

Sizes included:

  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Feya, Isis, & Venus

Fab Free Designer Friday – 05/19/2017 – Adoness

Adoness Exterior
Happy Friday Fab Free! The pretty moonlit building pictured above is none other than Adoness, the shop for this week’s Designer Friday post. Adoness is probably best known for their unique edgy hairstyles in rich bold colors. However you’ll also find some ladies clothing, accessories, and even nail appliers and eyes. I would describe the style at Adoness as slightly gothic lolita. However I think it lends itself not only to an urban style, but other fantasy genres like anime also.

Adoness Info & Gifts
Once inside the shop, you’ll see the interior is uniquely decorated like the exterior. Just inside the entrance on the wall you’ll see the current Fab Free exclusive FREE group gift from Adoness. Astrid showed this gift previously in her post “Join Me at the Pub.” To get this gift, just wear your Fab Free group tag and click the vendor. If you’re not already a member, not to worry, the Fab Free group is always FREE to join.  In the center of the room you’ll find a column with a desk and a subscriber joiner, in world group, a link to the blog, Marketplace, and a landmark giver on one side. Sitting on the desk are two dollarbie hairstyles. On a different side of the same column is where you’ll find the information about store groups and affiliations.

While most of the items at Adoness are for the ladies, there are several items like eyes and hairstyles that I believe could be considered unisex. Browse the hairstyles on the left side of the shop, and find clothing, accessories, gachas, and other items to the right. There’s even more shopping upstairs.

A Little Goth1c0 Never Hurt Anyone

Goth1c0
Well Hello Fab Free’rs! Once again it seems the week has gotten away from me. I am sensing a recurring theme in my world as of late, I never seem to know where all my time goes! I suppose that means I’m having fun, you know the saying: time flies when you’re having fun. Whatever the case, one thing I can say for sure, I do think this look is tons of fun and just the right side of sinister.

Goth1c0 Group Gift 

The mesh dress Pru is wearing is a FREE group gift from Goth1c0. Though it doesn’t appear this is a new gift (the packaging says July), I still like it a lot. I enjoy the way the dress shows off curves without showing too much. The Goth1c0 group is FREE to join, so the dress is a steal of a deal. The dress comes in standard mesh sizes and includes a color change hud so that you can change the color of the material in the sexy corseted side panels. There are 6 total color options, 2 of which are solid colors while the rest are patterned.

RedMint
RedMint Group Gift

You can always count on RedMint to have hairstyles that suit more alternative looks. This silver-blue toned messy up do is the most recent group gift at RedMint. The FREE gift is in this single color only.  The RedMint group is FREE to join, and there are several past group gifts available. To get this gift, you’ll want to make sure you’re in the hair studio section, if not just use the signage on the wall at the landing point to teleport to the hair studio.

Slack Girl Marketplace Special 

Alright, so I have to say that my closeup photo does not do this eye shadow from SlackGirl justice. There are little jewels under the lower lid that give this shadow a unique look. You’ll find a full eye shadow set by SlackGirl on the Marketplace for just 10 linden. With the set you’ll receive classic system layers for each of the 8 color options. You’ll also get an applier hud for Catwa, Akeruka, and Omega compatible heads. If you’re even half as into makeup as I am, this is a must have!

Here are the Details, Enjoy!
