Settling Into Fall

Coming Soon
Hey FabFree! I am enjoying the fall season and decorating my home with lovely fall goodies. Before I jump into the decor I’ve found, I have an amazing free fall mug and drink to share. 

A Warm Pumpkin Spice Latte

Oh how I enjoy all things pumpkin flavored- especially lattes! You can grab this adorable pumpkin mug and drink at hive. It is a free group gift. 

Fall Decor!

Coming Soon

Now it’s time to share some amazing fall decor. I am loving the pumpkin season too! I got most of my decor from the Fall Festival at Malus Park which is a wonderful event to stock up on fall goodies. They have many giftboxes scattered around the event that cost 25L and under at the Fall Festival, which ends on October 16th. 

I also grabbed the banner from the Halloween Shop & Hop. The deals under 75L I am showing in decor today are:

  • The pot of pretty orange flowers is a 25L deal from Finca at the Fall Festival.
  • The beautiful fall leaves painting is 25L from Cwtch at the Fall Festival.
  • The two pumpkins that are breaking open with green ivy and brown leaves falling out of them cost 70L each, and you can find them at the Noveny booth at the Fall Festival.
  • Finally, the “Happy Halloween” banners are a free gift from Finca at the Halloween Shop & Hop

Enjoy, FabFree!

Halloween Hunting

Coming Soon

Hey FabFree! I told you I would be ready for Halloween this week … I just love this season! Let’s jump into some Halloween goodies!

The Haunted Hunt @ Malus Park!

First off for the Halloween goodies today is the amazing bat dress I have on. This is a 10L gift on the Haunted Hunt at Malus Park from Ari-Pari. There are 4 versions of the spooky dress available, and they are 10L each. You need to hunt for pumpkins on the Malus Park sim to find the prizes. The four hunts to find the prizes are: 

  1. Let’s play hide-n-seek among the trees!
  2. Burn kraken burn! 
  3. Welcome to The Refuge!
  4. Peek-A-Boo!

All the prizes on this hunt cost 10L or less and you can see a list of the prizes and hints here

[Ari-Pari] Agatha Dress - Haunted Hunt Key

Sizes Included

  • Freya
  • Kupra
  • Legacy
  • Lara
  • Hourglass

.EscalateD. Halloween Goodies 

My adorable hairstyle is a 1L hunt prize on the Boo Bunny Hunt at the .EscalateD. mainstore. It includes a style hud and 2 colour huds. It’s adorable and a must-have hairstyle for your inventory. The hint to find the prize is, “nothing beats a hot coffee and some nice donuts”, and you can see more about the hunt here

I paired the hair with .EscalateD.’s bloody universal colour huds. These are hair colour huds that work with all their hairs. It just so happens that .EscalateD. has a free 250L store credit at the Halloween Shop and Hop. If you are into bloody halloween hair styles you can grab the Bloody Universal natural colour hud for 50% off at .EscalateD.’s booth at the shop and hop with your credits. This colour hud will allow you to turn any .EscalateD. hair you own or buy in the future into a Halloween hairstyle. This may be perfect for your next Halloween costume. 

Spooktober offers

.EscalateD. Bloody Naturals

All of the great deals shown in my post today end on October 31st. 

Happy Spooky Season!

This is Halloween

This is Halloween, everybody make a scene, and here we can see that I’m sitting around my tarot cards seeing that a ton of great deals and gifts are in your future! There is something magical about readings around Halloween, even better if you are in Salem, Mass. and have the ability to walk where the witches did so long ago…

Addams is at the Halloween Shop & Hop Event and they’re giving out L$500 in-store credit that you can use to snag this Limited Edition Pleated Skirt & Sweater (L$199) that would make it free! I have to admit this Exclusive was a great purchase and I had enough credits to get another outfit too, which makes this a double goodie treat from Addams.
What will you get with your credit?!

Both the Sweater and the Skirt each have a hud to change the colors/patterns options along with a bonus option for the panties for some crazy cute Halloween sayings for the front & the back.

Outfit Fits:

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

Women seem wicked

Fabfree Post: Women seem wicked

Faces come out of the rain

When you’re alone, can you hear the wind howling through the dead branches on that old tree swaying in the backyard? Can you hear the hiss of the little black cats circling your door looking for an unlucky place to lay their heads for the night? Can you hear the cackles of the silhouettes that cross the full moon riding their broomsticks? Do you hear something tapping, gently rapping on your chamber door, or is it silenced by the faces that come out of the rain evermore?

 

Apple Blossom has a free gift out at the Halloween Shop & Hop event and its spooktastic! It comes with a hud so this 1 piece top and bottom because 3 different outfits! The Ciel Halloween Edition color options come in (pictured above) Spiderwebs/bats, Colorful Skulls, and Ghosts.

Possessed

Possessed

Hello There Fab Free’rs! Once again I’m feeling very in the spooky spirit of the season. I a few more of the many many many Halloween Shop & Hop gifts. I created this almost pretty possessed look using the gift skin from YS&YS, the gift dress from Luas, and the septum piercing gift from RAWR!. I really hope you have some fun with these freebies.

YS&YS

I can’t help but love this free skin from YS&YS at the Halloween Shop & Hop event. Even with her scarred face, she’s still a pretty chick. This would be such a fun skin to create a story around. This free gift includes BOM layer full skins, face only BOM layers. There are also variations to suit Genus, Lelutka, and Catwa heads. There are also two pairs of BOM layer eyes, the “blind” eyes shown and a creepy cool black pair.

YS&YS @Hallowen Shop & Hophttp://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Sugarplum/150/70/52

Luas 

This skeleton print dress is the free gift at the Halloween Shop & Hop by Luas. The “Donna” dress comes in a full fatpack with lots of HUD based color choices. Even with the exposed shoulders the dress has an almost cozy look to it that makes it a cool addition to any fall wardrobe.

Sizes Included: Belleza Freya, Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass, MeshBody Legacy & Perky

Luas @Halloween Shop & Hop http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Aurelian/165/28/53

RAWR!

Lastly, the planchette septum piercing from RAWR! was just the added touch this look needed. It’s also free at the Halloween Shop & Hop event. Included with the piercing is a color change HUD that gives you several options for the metal ring and the planchette part of the piercing.

Let’s Get Spooky!

Let's Get Spooky

Hello Fab Free! This is absolutely my favorite time of year. This is when I can be as spooky as I want to, and no one seems to mind. That said, I think my level of excitement over the Halloween Shop & Hop events might have been the most excitement I’ve felt about an event all year. With several sims full of festive Halloween goodness and freebies, I can’t imagine not being excited. That said, I have several of the free Halloween Shop & Hop event gifts to share with you. I sincerely hope you love them, I do.

As Aline mentioned in her recent post “The Magic Words” there are 8 total Halloween Shop & Hop sims. Most (if not all) of the participating shops have a free gift, with no group required. Some gifts will require you to pay 1 linden,  however you will be instantly refunded. For this look I picked up the free gifts from Pink Cream Pie, #Adored, The Annex, On a Lark, and ChicChica. As usual you can keep reading for details about each free gift, or scroll to the end for full credits and links.

Pink Cream Pie

My thoroughly blood splattered top is the free Halloween Shop & Hop gift by Pink Cream Pie. This gift comes with a color change hud that has several solid colored tees all with generous amounts of blood splatter.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Maitreya Lara Petite, MeshBody Legacy

#Adored

The free Halloween Shop & Hop gift by #Adored is the cutest little brow tattoo. It reads “Spooky” with the option of wearing it on the right or the left side, in cursive or bold lettering, each with the choice of bold or faded styles. This tattoo comes in tint-able BOM layers only, which gives the added option of having the tattoo in color.

The Annex

I particularly like this fun devil horns headband by The Annex because it glows like neon. It comes in several color choices, so you can wear this fun accessory with multiple outfits. They are also of course free at the Halloween Shop & Hop Event.

On a Lark

I think there’s a rule that says you can’t have Halloween without a black and red manicure. Okay, maybe not, but in my world these bento nails by On a Lark are a must this season. On a Lark has 2 darkly pretty manicure sets as free gifts at the Halloween Shop & Hop event. The ones I am wearing are part of the “Halloween” set that has 4 black and red variations in the set.

Sizes Included: Maitreya, Slink

ChicChica

Finally, my creepy cocktail is part of the free Halloween Shop & Hop gift by ChicChica. The gift includes two fantastically macabre martinis. Also, each of the Halloween themed  drinks has a bento hold pose. Have fun Fab Free!
