Simply Fabulous Free and Under L$75 Finds in Second Life – Since 2007


This is a Story About a Girl…

This is a story about a girl...

This is a story about a girl…
a girl who loved books
a girl who loved books so much that she gave her very soul to them.

For she exists in a place between time and space
Her mind forever in a dimension of far away lands
where the lines of reality blur.

Travel with me now to this place,
where the rarely spoken about dark side of books is found….
in… the Twilight Grid

Hey gang!

Have you been to the creepy crawly Crypt Crawl Hunt?  I went this morning and oh!  It was a marvelous time!  Things were hidden in the most delicious of places, places I might have hid them, and I do love playing hide and seek with other warped minds who think like me.  Especially so when all the prizes are absolutely free!

The Library of the Damned….

Ok maybe not, but the thing that drove me there was wanting to find this amazing library skybox, because it was right up my alley.  Just lock me away with lots of books and journals and pens and I may never ever want to come out.  Dreamy…..

Where was I?  Oh yes, the hunt, there are many merchants with goodies hidden, with lots of fun deceiving names too!  This skybox is a freebie from Dragon Magick Wares and I love it.  Oh but if you want to go inside you will have to change the object from a convex hull to a prim.  I got bumped back out a couple of times before I sorted that out.  Otherwise the spirits will not welcome you.

All items are 0L, no group required, just show up and have fun hunting, and be sure to search low *and* high.  That’s the only advice I am giving you.  You are searching for a lit candle and there are a lot of really fun creative hiding places.  I have to say this is one of my favorite hunts because of that!

Now it only runs until the 6th so if you want to hunt, best hurry over!

Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween!

Hey, FabFree! I know I am a few days early, but Happy Halloween! I am not sure if I will be able to post on the actual day but I want to send everyone good wishes and I hope that you all have a fun holiday. I have more awesome Halloween stuff to show you tonight. This time I am showing off some poses, props, a scarf and a witch hat.

A Generous Gift for All

PosEd Poses currently has a great pose and set of props, shown on the left of my photo out for free, no group join required. The gift includes the pumpkin, sign and the raven sitting on my arm. This is perfect for taking your Halloween pictures this year. A version for men and women is included. 

Miz Witchie

Another great freebie I am showing is my witch hat, which is a free group gift at Witchcraft. The hat inclues a hud that allows you to chage the colours of the decoration on the hat to different colours. Wicked!

A Cute Skully Scarf

Finally, the cute little scarf is a free group gift for members of the Fashionable group at Dreams Store. I love this little scarf because it matches outfits well. 

Enjoy, FabFree!

Halloween Memories: Trick or Treat?

Trick or Treat - Coming Soon

When I was a kid, my favourite part of Halloween was decorating our front lawn with my Mom. The day she brought home a huge inflatable pumpkin was one of the best memories I had as a child! I was so excited. Now I have an epic inflatable pumpkin for my garden here in SL and some other great Halloween decor which I have set up for the night of trick or treating on the 31st. My house is definitely ready for the big night now. 

Here are the details about the free decor items shown in my post today:

  • The pumpkin inflatable is a free gift at Apple Fall. Look for it in the store. It’s in one of the rooms and it costs 0L, no group required. 
  • The cute little orange pots are the latest free subscriber gift at Noveny! Just click the subscriber and they’re yours. If it doesn’t work for you at first, just un-subscribe an re-subsribe to get the gift. 
  • The little cauldron at my feet gives out “tricks” or treats- like candy and other goodies to all your guests and trick-or-treaters. The cute alien lollipop I am holding is from the cauldron! The cauldron is free at Junk Food and no group is required to get this amazing gift.

I am back at the Shop & Hop, my dear Fab Folks. I can’t seem to get away! There are just so many wonderful free gifts here. I hope you don’t get bored with all my shoppin’ an’ hoppin’!

Today is this beautiful party perfect gown from Lurve. This is the “Forever Loved” gown in the special Halloween colors. Just look at the stunning work on the lace shawl! It’s outstanding! And the gown itself is equally gorgeous. I’m ready for the fanciest Halloween party SL can throw at me!

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Classic Mesh – M
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique

I added another Shop & Hop gift to my look tonight. My jewelry is from Zuri and t’s their free gift for us. The ” Lady Skull Fire Opal” choker and earrings couldn’t compliment this dress more if they tried. Both the choker and earrings are resizable and there is a ‘bling’ feature if you want to sparkle.

My seductive pose is yet another free gift at the Shop & Hop. This is “Nezuko” from Fashiowl and it’s one of three gifts in their present. Two of the gifts are full fatpacks of poses and props and one is a single pose with Halloween props. I just love adding to my pose collection!

Before and After

IMG_2289

Cheerio gang!

This post is not your typical before and after.  Oh gosh I *do* love me a before and after, you know when they do makeovers?  It is one of my fondest wishes to one day get a makeover by professionals.  Alas.  But I love a makeover, it’s always so exciting to see what changes they make and how awesome whomever or whatever they were working on came out!

This is kind of a reverse before and after to showcase the awesome goodies I got at the Arcade Event, courtesy of Pare’.  Now, if you want to get all the juicy details of how the new system at the arcade works, I spelled it all out in my previous post here.  With that out of the way, let’s get on to the fun stuff, the goodies!  The machine for Pare’ is called Night Crawlers and is 75L a play and I had to come back on subsequent days to get both the outfits I was lucky enough to grab.  The above was the pink, which I love.  The below photo shows the Halloween version which I was lucky enough to get on my second day try.  I was originally going to just blog the pink one, but when I got the Halloween one as well, I couldn’t resist combining the two.

So, what exactly do I call my before and after?  The first photo, above, is before the Zombie Apocalypse, the second photo before is, well, after, obviously, and our brave heroine can tell she has become outnumbered and she is about to become Zombie herself.  Notice how she is biting her lip in distress?  So she has gone from geek chic to zombie hunter.

As I stated in my previous post, you choose the size you want to play for in the machine and I chose Maitreya Lara as that is what I wear.

Lessons learned by our lovely heroine… a gun works better than an axe when fighting zombies.  Unfortunately.

The End

Innocent Until Proven Evil

Innocent until Proven Evil

When hinges creak in doorless chambers, and strange and frightening sounds echo through the halls. Whenever candlelights flicker where the air is deathly still — that is the time when ghosts are present, practicing their terror with ghoulish delight!

-Haunted Mansion Ride, Disney parks

Hey gang!

I’m back with some ghoulish delights of my own, found at the new style Arcade Event.  The event has been updated from the old style gachas into a new system of its own, which has you grabbing a HUD as you enter, and which you wear while you shop.  When you find a machine you want to play, you connect it to the machine. (don’t spend fifteen minutes trying to find it on the machines like I did at first, each machine is on a base and at the front of each base is two buttons, one to connect your HUD.)

Once you are connected, it will show you which item has been chosen for you to play for.  If you want that item, you pay the machine (if you try to pay it without the HUD, it will refuse your money and send it back to you.), if not then disconnect and head to another machine.  If you do play, you will get that item and the HUD will show you a new, random choice.

If you want to try again, you have to wait until the next day, as it will reset at midnight, and you can get new random numbers.  If you try again that same day, you will get the same numbers.  It’s kind of fun, really (and a bit addicting!).

So I lucked out on this play, the Mikunch machine where I got this cute dress (you choose the size you want to play for on certain machines), I chose Maitreya cause that’s what body I use.   It comes with a HUD giving you a handful of color choices (black, white, red, pink).  It’s only 75L a play.

This dress gave me sort of a “Bad Seed” sort of vibe, perfect for Halloween.  She is just a sweet girl, right?  Right?!  Only time will tell!

Happy Haunting!

Oh, What’s a Witch to do!

Raw Image, only Vignette added

What’s a Witch to do… When she can’t Remember *where* she parked her Broom!

Hmmm, that’s not mine, and this one isn’t mine…  Oh darn, none of these are mine!

Oh!

Hey gang, I didn’t see you standing there (or sitting as the case may be!)

I am back with a bit more fun from the Swank Pumpkin Hunt!  This is a hunt going on at the Swank Event and it is so much fun, so many great designers with goodies!  The hunt is free, and although you are required to join the Swank group, that is free as well.

This time I have a super cute outfit from Brii Underground!  This is a complete outfit, cute hat and everything, that is a hunt giftie at Swank.  This is a fit for Maitreya only, but golly it’s cute! (yes, I said golly.)  Since it is so cute, this, as you can see, is *not* one of my scary posts.  Thought y’all could use a break!  Don’t worry, I have more in the wings!  You will just have to wait and see!

Has anyone seen my broom around?  I need it to fly home!

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!
