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!

Be Still My Gothic Heart

Be Still My Gothic Heart

Gothic is still in…

If you think I have to put away those amazing Halloween Gifts creators put out for us, think again. I’m re-purposing mine into fashionable Gothic accessories. Chop Zuey has always been generous with both group gifts (the join fee is 350L) and free to all gifts, and though I didn’t manage to show off this Skull of Corruption Necklace in time for Halloween, I knew it would have a place in my Goth-at-Heart wardrobe.

This necklace is one of the newest group gifts that you can pick up at Chop Zuey with your group tag. There are also two free to all gifts that match it (earrings and hair sticks) as well that I’m not showing. Those you can pick up nearby to get a beautiful matching look.

The little black dress…

I love little black dresses, and I love that there are so many ways to make a little black dress. They can be plain, business, creative, sexy, Gothic, or what have you! I was really thrilled when I saw that Meva had put out this nicely detailed little black dress for group members as a gift. It only comes in a size for Maitreya, but you might be able to fiddle with it to get it to fit a standard avatar.

I love the metal rings and straps and sexy cut outs. This is a real winner. The group join fee for Meva is 100L, but there are currently a total of 5 beautiful group gifts out for you to pick up, making it well worth your fee to join, if you’re not already in the group.

In The Harsh Light of the Day

In the Harsh Light of the Day

Hello Fab Free’rs! I’m feeling very Morticia Addams in this awesome dress from MoDanna, and I love it! This black leather gown is low in the front, low in the back and fits like a glove. It comes in several mesh sizes including specific body fits. The slight flare at the ankles gives it an added touch of goth-y elegance. To get this dress, simply wear your MoDanna group tag (the group is FREE to join), head to MoDanna, and pay the gift vendor 1 linden.

Modanna Dark 9

To go with the gown from MoDanna, I picked up this gorgeous eye-shadow from SlackGirl. It’s their FREE On9 Anniversary Hunt prize. This gold shadow with a smoky wing from SlackGirl comes with several color options each with the gold base. Additionally this hunt gift comes with appliers for just about every mesh head available, including some I was unaware of. There are also system layers for classic avatars. If you want to continue the hunt, head to On9 and click the cupcakes at each vendor booth for a folder with a hint and a landmark to each main location where you’ll hunt down your FREE cupcake containing the hunt prize.

For the final touch I picked up these beautiful winged-heart earrings are a 10 linden gift at the Dark Side event. The earrings by Indulge Temptation are highly detailed re-sizable mesh, and well worth the 10 lindens. You’ll find them in a gift box at the Indulge Temptation booth at the Dark Side event.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

The Good Goth

Goth Moment

There must be something goth-y in the air! With me, there’s always a little something goth goin’ on, I just don’t always show it. The “goth” look like the music of it’s time is very nostalgic for me. I don’t think I’ll ever not secretly (or not so secretly) love dark lips combined with black and grungy plaid clothing. All this being said, I couldn’t help but get a little giddy when I saw the Flippant gacha at the current round of SWANK.
Goth Close
This is the end-all-beat-all of girly goth fashion in one gacha machine, and at 40 lindens per play, you won’t feel guilty about indulging. This gacha from Flippant includes 1 rare accessory set, 1 uncommon top, 1 uncommon tattoo, 8 common pairs of boots, and 8 common skirts with textures to match the boots. Also, this “Oh Good Goth” gacha machine can be played at the SWANK event or at the Flippant main location. The cost per play is the same at both places. The top and skirt come in several mesh sizes for easy fitting, while the boots have re-size scripts. There are no “feet” required to wear these shoes. I just love the little socks! The shoulder blade rosary tattoo includes classic system layers, as well as appliers for Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza bodies. The rare accessory set has a multi-finger ring that seems to fit Slink Elegant1 hands, a right and left bracelet, matching necklace, and cross earrings (not shown). Each piece in the accessory set has re-size scripts. So you can see the details, I also included a copy of the gacha key for the Flippant Oh Good Goth gacha machine below.

I hope you like this look as much as I know I do! Happy Gacha-ing!!

Goth-y Monday

Heyya FabFree Folks!

goth_001

I hope your week is off to a great start. I got a nice jump on the week while I was hunting this Monday morning. Of course, freebies always make my day! 😉

This nifty goth-y look is from Goth1c0 and it’s all free. My tied up jeans are the Febuary group gift and they come with a HUD for six colors including the washed blue I’m showing. The jeans come in the standard Mesh sizes XS-L and have their own alpha. Now, since this is last month’s gift, I don’t know how much longer they will be available so hurry over if you want to snap them up.

While you’re there, you can play the Group only Lucky Boards and get a shot at the flowy loose tank top that’s completing my look today. There are actually six Lucky Boards for both guys and girls loaded with great stuff. And if that wasn’t enough, there are twenty one Gacha machine to play! The tank comes in the standard Mesh sizes XXS-L and has it’s own alpha layer.

Knockers Empire

Knockers Empire

Hello Fab Free’rs! Today I’m feeling a little more gothic than usual, perhaps it’s this curvaceous school uniform from Knockers giving me gothic lolita vibes. This subtly sexy outfit is the current group gift at Knockers. The Knockers V.I.P. group is currently 150 lindens to join, however the monthly gifts are more than worth the one time fee. The dress is a single mesh piece and highly detailed. Not to mention, the curves in this mesh are killer. If you like the style, you won’t want to miss out on this gift from Knockers.

To match this cute dress, I needed equally cute and flirty shoes. Recently I received notice of a new shop in Second Life called Empire. I went and checked out Empire, and was not disappointed. These platform shoes are their current opening group gift. The shoes come in fits for most mesh feet and include a color change hud that allows you to change individual parts of the shoes. The shoes could be colored this way to match just about anything. The Empire group has a one time join fee of 150 lindens as well, but I am comfortable saying these shoes are worth it. I’ve been wearing them, and they are seriously cute on.

Enjoying the Holiday Grind

The holiday grind has not gotten to me yet… in fact today I’m enjoying it! Gothmas style! Though I admit, I did wake up early to make pancakes. Does it count as Gothic if I made the pancakes in the shape of little bats and “colored” them with Nutella to get them to look right? I know my daughter was certainly thrilled!

Enjoying the Holiday Grind 1

Speaking of the holiday grind… the Radio Grind has everything you need for a Gothmas! Or just for a Gothic day… or steampunk (it could qualify for that with the right decor). Either way, I stopped by the Cart Sale again, and made away like a banshee!

The Radio Grind has me dressed up in style in this Storypunk Wonderland Red dress. It is mesh with lots of sizing choices to fit your avatar… and at only 10L for such fabulous details? I fell in love!

If red isn’t your thing, don’t worry! This same gorgeously detailed dress was at the cart in two other colors for the same low price, one of which was a soft floral blue, pretty enough for the spring days to come.

Enjoying the Holiday Grind 2

So it’s the holiday. Merry Gothmas and Happy Holidays (all of them) and good cheer for the New Year! Are you loving my set? Me too! Would you believe that this AMAZING skybox is only 10L at the Radio Grind cart at the Cart Wash Sale?!

The skull throne and curtain were included details from Radio Grind skybox, though I did toss down a few things of my own for this picture. You can get the Glyphic Circle by Nocturne Creations from the Marketplace for only 50L. It is animated and scripted to turn, and only 3 prim when you set it down.

I also set George out again. He joined me once before in a long ago post. My hellpup is a sweet Gacha prize you can get in store from Sweet Thing. It is just a touch over our 75L limit, but I had to share him with you! For just 80L per spin you can get a chance at this cute pup — either in holdable or the “plop” option shown. And he comes in lots of classic Gothic styles!

Enjoying the Holiday Grind 3

Last, but certainly not least, I hope you are still making all of your advent stops! Many stores are finishing off with grand finales today! My lovely little Kiss Me Holly stick pin is by Chop Zuey and is FREE with your group tag (350L to join). This advent is generous indeed in that there are 12 days of group only gifts (the group is 350L to join) with a men’s side and women’s side (so 24 gifts total there alone) PLUS an additional completely FREE advent with 12 days of FREE gifts too! And the advents for this store are open the full time so if you miss a day you can still get all the gifts. Be sure to pick them all up before they are gone!

Dreaming of a White Elephant Christmas

My Gothic Christmas

As far as I am concerned you can still be goth and love the Holidays. Anyone who says different, well they are missing out! I spent an afternoon at the White Elephant Fair and had a really great time. There are tons of great bargains to be had from some wonderful designers. Additionally there are gacha machines all along the walkways and a huge Christmas tree overflowing with gifts from many of the participating designers. Several of the gifts are even FREE!

First things first, how cute is this dress? I love the cute argyle pattern of this fully mesh dress. It’s one of the gachas from Mutiny in Heaven. You can score one of several versions of this dress for just 35 lindens per play. The playful dress comes with a matching alpha layer, and standard mesh sizes. In addition to these fun sweater dresses, Mutiny in Heaven also has this gorgeous long hairstyle as one of their gachas. The hairstyle is called “Maeve” and is just 50 linden per play.

My Gothic Christmas Outfit

Now about those gifts I mentioned.  As those who know me know that I love bats, so this super cute Christmas hat with the bats from The Little Bat is of course my favorite of the gifts I found under the Christmas Tree at The White Elephant Fair. The Little Bat gift hat is FREE, just find the gift under the tree and purchase for zero linden.

Another personal favorite is this festive fuzzy jewelry set from Indulge Temptation. The set includes a necklace (shown) and matching earrings (not shown) with fuzzy little pom poms. Included in the gift is a color change /resize hud that lets you resize and change the color of the metal parts as well as the pom poms. The White Elephant gift from Indulge Temptation is just one linden. As with all the White Elephant Fair gifts, you’ll find this one under the big Christmas tree.

Always a sucker for makeup, I was delighted to find the gift from Dust Bunnies under the White Elephant Fair Christmas tree. The gift is a set of lovely lip appliers in various shades of holly red. Included in the gift are appliers for Omega, Catwa, Lelutka, and Slink, as well as system tatoo layers for each shade. With all the appliers, and matching system layers, these lipsticks are a steal at just one linden for the set.

Finally, I seriously enjoy decorating for the Holidays. If I had infinite funds and free time, I would decorate the whole house with each season and holiday. Yes, I’m that person! Luckily for me, and for you, the White Elephant Fair gift from Yay and Stuff includes two wreaths, one black (shown) and one red (not shown), as well as a pair of reindeer slippers (not shown). The wreaths are able to be copied so you can put out as many as you like. This gift can be had for just 10 lindens.

All these gifts and the gachas are just a tiny example of the bargains to be had at The White Elephant Fair. I highly suggest everyone take some time to check it out. Even the scenery is worth the visit.

Here are the details, Enjoy!
