How Far You’ve Come

How Far You've Come

Hey again Fab Free! Is it just me or has latex clothing in SL come a long way from the days of system layers?  I used to think back then how great it all looked, and yet, look how far we’ve come!  I got this super shiny number courtesy of Psycho Barbie, and also some group gift hair that I’m enjoying quite thoroughly.  Read on!

A Bit Psycho

I stood in the light and stared at this dress for quite a while when I first put it on.  I was mesmerized by the way the latex caught the light, as well as really enjoying the sparkle strips down the sides.  You can’t see it on my pic, but the back has some pretty daring lacing that kiiiinda made me blush a bit!  HA.  You can get your copy of this showstopper by swinging by Psycho Barbie and finding the display for Syndicate Sunday.  It’s a brand new event that has a whole bunch of designers offering discounted clothing at their store.  Every item in their sale costs 69L, so you can shine on in style without breaking the bank!  Syndicate Sunday runs until Tuesday, May 8th, so don’t delay!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • Tonic Curvy
  • Tonic Fine
  • Venus

Good Hair Day

Sintiklia have a new group gift out that I’m enjoying quite a lot.  It features a shoulder-length cut, three different styles of bangs, and a whole fatpack of colours.  You can grab it by joining the group for 250L – there are several other hairstyles out for you to pick up as well, and loads of lucky boards so you can increase your hair cache by a fair amount!  Yay!

Shine on, my friends!

Tropical Nights

Tropical Nights

I’m feeling quite tropical today.  I’m not entirely sure why, but I’m craving things that smell like coconut and drinks that have flowers in them.  It’s quite possible that it’s this palm frond-adorned dress that I picked up… Whatever the reason, I’m ready for some full on summery weather, and a drink to sip while gazing at the waves!

The Next Chapter

I found some awesome gifts at this month’s edition of The Chapter Four.  It’s their anniversary, so there are loads of fantastic goodies to be had at the event!  Join the group for 10 Lindens, then take a walk around and find all the little pink boxes at each display.  I am wearing the offerings of N-Uno and Pr!tty.  The dress by N-Uno is a Maitreya Lara exclusive and I totally love the palms on the dress.  They make me so happy!  Pr!tty also wowed with their gift at The Chapter Four – there are two different hairdos in the gift.  I’m showing off the long flowing waves that is Avy.  It comes with a full fatpack of colours as well as rigged and unrigged versions so you can get the right fit.  Don’t you love it?

I hope things are warming up nicely, wherever you are!

Going on Tour

Eifle Tower_001

It seemed fitting that since I was on the trail of the world tour hunt that I should visit the Eiffel Tower. I took a picture in front of it with a few of my choice gifts from the hunt. I outfitted myself from hair to shoes for just 6L in World style and you can too… then take a tour of the Tower yourself!

The Hair.

My hair is a free style from Firelight! as part of the World Tour Hunt. Like all the gifts it is just 2L to pick up. It only comes in the brown shade shown, but you do get both a regular version plus a busty version of these luscious locks!

Styling.

My stylish Dress is part of the World Tour Hunt as well and is from Meander. You also get the hat, which I edited to fit in my hand, but you can wear on your head. Again, it is just 2L and a little hunting time for the globe.

Available dress sizes:

Classic XS – L
TMP
Ocacin
eBody
Maitreya
Tonic Fine & Curvy
Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus

Shoes to match.

Pick up my shoes at Lindy Modern & Retro for 2L as part of the World Tour Hunt as well. They just happen to match this dress almost perfectly I think! The gift box includes shoes for Maitreya, Slink and Classic feet!

Club Wear in Two Stops and 3 Linden

Garage

Love was mentioning how she moved from the big city to a small town when she was young and brave. I grew up on a farm… it didn’t even qualify as a small town… and when I went off to college, I moved away to the city. I remember going to clubs and bars for the first time just to play pool because back home, the closest town nearest me didn’t allow women into the pool hall (yes it was that old fashioned!). So when I got to the city I was so excited to go and just play pool at all the hang out joints! I’d dress up for a night on the town and head out, buy a diet pepsi and play pool. It was great fun!

The perfect outfit.

This outfit I’ve put together is perfect for club wear and will only cost you 3 Linden total and a little bit of hunting time. You’ll also only have to make 2 stops to get the dress, shoes, and hair!

First, make a pit stop at Barbed Wire Kisses. They are participating in two great hunts right now. For 1L as part of the Cute and Curvy Hunt, you can hunt down a lolly pop and pick up my cute little two piece outfit. The dress comes in the following sizes:

  • Maitreya
  • Tonic Fine & Curvy
  • Hourglass & Physique
  • Freya & Isis

While you’re at Barbed Wire Kisses, be sure to hunt down the globe for the World Tour Hunt and buy it for 2L. You’ll get the shoes in the picture above that are almost a perfect match for the Cute and Curvy outfit! These heels come in sizes to fit Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza feet.

New Hair too!

Take a last stop to Desmonia and you’ll be all set. The hair I’m wearing in the picture comes in a full fatpack of colors and currently the group is free to join. But HURRY! This is a limited time offer and the group is set to go back to a join fee any time now. You don’t want to miss out!

A fresh look

Snapshot_002

A fresh hair style!

I got a notice that Nyne put out a fresh group gift and I headed to the store to check it out! My new Nissa hair is free with your free to join Nyne group tag and comes with a hud to fully texture change both the color of the hair as well as the bow! Color this hair to your hearts content and get it for free!

Checking out Sexy!

I was checking out the FabFree Group Gift Listing and saw the gift for Sexy Princess and thought it would be perfect to go with my new hair! This sexy mini dress has a floral print and criss cross front and comes in several mesh sizes. As always, the Fabfree group is free to join, so the gift was free to take home!

Dress sizes available:

  • TMP
  • Maitreya

And while I was there…

While I was at Sexy Princess, I couldn’t help but notice the wall of gifts! I picked up this second sexy number that is a Fitmesh Fanatics group gift. The Fitmesh Fantatics group is free to join, so you can pick up this group free as well. You might remember that Kat blogged this dress in turquoise [here] so if you liked this dress and want to add it to your wardrobe in red, now is your chance!

Dress Sizes Available:

  • Classic XXS – L
  • TMP
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, & Venus

One more stop!

I hadn’t been by Moondance Boutique in a while, and I love their jewelry, (it always includes such terrific color change huds). I was pleasantly surprised to see new group gifts out and available and I quickly picked up the free SL frees and Offers group gift. This Tracey jewelry set includes the necklace, earrings, bracelets, and rings in the picture. You can zoom in on the flickr for a close up! You’ll get lots of gemstone choices (the gemstones change colors separately) plus several metal finishes to choose from. Enjoy this gift free!

Pastel Procrastinator

Pastel Procrastinator

I’m having one of those days, where I get up, plan everything I’m supposed to do, get really ready for it all, and then next thing I know the day is done without much actually having been accomplished.  On days like that I try to remind myself that I’m allowed to relax, and kick back now and then.  Aline, however, has other plans.  She got her hair did, slicked on makeup and started bounding about doing all sorts of creative things.  I dunno why, but she never really seems to need much of a rest… 😉

Best Tressed

I caught up with Pr!tty, and it seems they’ve moved again.  If you didn’t get a chance to get group gifts last time, or had issues landing in the store, you can try again at another build located on the Senses sim.  I landed just as my letter came up on the lucky board.  I activated my group tag (a group that is currently free to join), and clicked upon the board.  This lovely creation was delivered to me, and I was happy to see it came with some cute sparkly ears too.  My fave!

Pretty in Pink

I also managed to get some free makeup today!  It’s always nice to find a cool subscriber gift, because it doesn’t take up any group space, and once in a while you log in to find a nice surprise delivered straight to your inventory.  This month, Alma have sent out really nice pink eye shadows and lip gloss.  There’s also a green version for those who are feeling a tad more adventurous!  It comes in an Omega applier, so it works with a relay on most mesh heads.  Once you have clicked on the subscriber, click the poster again to see past notices, and there you will find the March Subscriber gift waiting for you.

Wish getting ready was this easy in RL!

Weird and Wonky

Weird and Wonky

Oh hey there Fab Free.  You’re looking lovely this evening.  I’m feeling….a bit weird and wonky.  I dunno, like I’ve been looking at myself in a fun house mirror or something.  The only thing to do when that happens is run with it – make the weirdness your biggest asset, and that’s what I plan to do.  Today, I found the perfect dress to make my weirdness come out front and centre.

Meet Me At the Altar

Ostara’s Altar, that is!  It’s an event filled with the witchy, spooky, gothy things I highly enjoy, as well as having a fun little 5L hunt going on too.  I found the Get Frocked egg, and inside lay this fun dress!  It just calls out to me.  Want to know what lies hidden within the other eggs?  Well you can have a little peek right HEREOstara’s Altar runs until April 3rd, so head on over!

Sizes

  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • XS – XL with an Alpha Layer

At Midnight…

I have been enjoying a few different free Olive hairdos in the last little while, and recently I slapped the Midnight Madness board while I was there, and this hella big creation was delivered to me at Midnight! I’ve done it a few times, and each time I have participated, the prize was delivered to me!  I’m pretty sure it is switched every few days, so the hair I’m wearing might not be available today, but there are a whole bunch of other options, so you can add to your hair collection!  Good Luck!

A dirty little secret…

Petals_001

Hair! Hair!

I keep thinking of that musical. Is it Hair? Or was it Hairspray? Someone help me?! Maybe it was both! Anyway… Everyone is having so much fun with the Finders Keepers Hunt and with only a few days left (it ends the 24th) I had to get in on some more free hair! Already your Fabfree bloggers have shown you free Finders Keepers Hair in some great posts!

Serena showed you some here.
Loki showed you some here.
Love showed you some here.
Aline showed you some here.

And I got you covered in this post! Just head over to Mina and hunt down that pot of gold for your free Arwen hair in black. You’ll get a materials and no materials version in the gift box.

Speaking of fun…

I had fun hunting down sexy underthings at Glitzz. I have a dirty little secret. I LOVE lingerie. Especially free lingerie. And this set that Glitzz is giving out free for the Finders Keepers Hunt is a keeper for sure. You’re going to get a Maitreya fit bra and matching panties set in Turquoise. The bra has strategically placed roses for nip coverage and the panties have similar coverage with a strategic rose. Otherwise this set is very risky with all lace strings! It’s super sexy and perfect for a hot hot hot night with that special someone. Rawr!

Absolutely Mint

Absolutely Mint

I have a love-hate relationship with hunts in SL.  They can be really fun, and you can find a million fantastic prizes, and you are all happy and joyful and such.  Then there are the ones that are gruelling, painful affairs where every prize is impossible to find and you go cross-eyed just thinking about it!

The Finders Keepers hunt was actually the former experience – I found things without going completely cross-eyed, and I even made some new friends along the way who banded with me to find all the stuff.  And of course, I got some fun free gifts!  Win-win!

Here’s what I picked up on the hunt:

  • FREE Mint latex pants from Yasum (Sized for Maitreya)
  • FREE Super high platforms from Moda (Sized for Maitreya, Belleza and Slink with loads of colours to choose from in the HUD)
  • FREE Tousled hair by Olive (I managed to use the HUD match the pants! Bonus! There’s also another style in the box too!)

I had a great time on the hunt (So did Love, Astrid and Serena, as you can see…), and I think you’ll enjoy it too!

Wrong Turn at Netherwood

Sunset

Melanie Daniels: On Mondays and Wednesdays I work for the Travelers Aid at the airport.
Mitch Brenner: Helping travelers?
Melanie Daniels: No, misdirecting them.
~ From The Birds

I got a little misdirected while visiting Netherwood. You see, I was checking out Love’s post about her finds at Petite Mort and from the picture I thought, hey that looks like a nice peaceful sim to visit… but Nooooooooo……. I end up in some corner that looks like it’s straight out of an Alfred Hitchcock movie! Which is sort of suitable since I’m sporting a shirt with Birds on it. I’m sure Hitchcock would approve.

Where to get the shirt:

My shirt by Trashed is a great little hunt item from the Glam or Grunge hunt and can be yours for only 1L. You’ve already seen some items shown on the blog by Stan [here] and me [here] and Kat [here]. Now you can add this one to your wardrobe as well. Ladies there was a matching tank top for you in the box also.

Available shirt sizes:

  • Classic XS – XL
  • TMP
  • Slink
  • Adam

Getting Hairy…

I picked up a couple of “hairy” gifts for this post, including a hair for my skull and a beard for my face. The hair on top of my head is a free hunt gift as part of the St. Patrick’s Day hunt. You’ll find this in a little pot of gold at Volthair. It’s actually unisex and includes the needed hairbases for various mesh heads. It’s a long over the shoulder style that goes down the back and comes in white or brown.

My beard is from i.mesh, and I couldn’t resist the contrast of my rough and tough exterior, with the rose-filled facial hair. This too is a free gift with your free to join group tag. You’ll get the beard in black with red roses, white with blue roses, and silver with yellow roses (shown).
