Lacrimosa

I found my Halloween costume! Halloween is creeping closer, and I am super excited! This vampy mesh dress complete with attached wings, and matching mask, is the current group gift at Katak. The gift is FREE and so is the group. Included with this vampish dress are the wings (which are actually part of the dress) and the matching mask. This curvaceous dress comes in a regular fit for standard avatars, a TMP fit, and a Maitreya fit. Also available is a matching costume for the men, making this one half of an awesome couple’s costume.

For the finishing touch to this ghoulish look, I added the dollarbie gift from Indulge Temptation at the Mad Circus Gacha Fair. You’ll find all sorts of loveliness at the festival, including the beauties in the gacha machine for Indulge Temptation, but this blood vial set for just 1 linden was too perfect to pass up! The set includes a pair of earrings, and a matching necklace. I’ve seen a lot of blood vial jewelry in my time in SL, and this one is truly one of my favorites.

Being green doesn’t make you evil.

witchygreen_001Hello again my pretties. *cackles* How many of you lovely readers have seen the musical Wicked? I went a few years ago, and loved it! I enjoyed seeing a different side to the story of the wicked witch. So for this Halloween, I’ve decided to put together a look that I think says wicked witch…who’s fun and cool, and not evil at all! I promise, I was not stirring up some evil potion in that cauldron, it was just supper, really! witchygreen_002

Ok ok, so it all started with the latest free group gift from Sugar Button Boutique. How cute is this dress! This short Halloween dress in brown is fitted mesh, in a few different sizes, and I think it is a great alternative to what you would normally see a green-skinned witch dressed up in. You know the look, long, black, maybe a little ragged, cloak/dress of some kind. While there is nothing wrong with that, as I said, I wanted fun, cool…normal. LOL. The Sugar Button Boutique group is L$100 to join, but there are past group gifts still available, so it’s more than worth it.

witchygreen_008Needing a little bling, I found the coolest bat leg chain accessory at the current round of The Fantasy Collective, and it is from Una. It is non-rigged mesh, so you can adjust it to your heart’s content (I made mine a touch smaller to fit with my leg size). If you have yet to wander around the Fantasy Collective this round, make sure when you land, you join the free group, as this leg chain, along with a whole whack load of other goodies, is free as part of a little trick or treat set up that is for group members only. All of the participating vendors have a pumpkin beside their booths, and all you need to do is touch the pumpkins to receive either a trick, or a treat. Trust me, they are all treats! witchygreen_006

Next I needed shoes. Seriously, as I was thinking of what I could put on, a well-timed notice from the Shey group showed up with these awesome black boots attached! The Shey Hallow Boot’s are mesh, and come in the standard sizes. No special feet required. The group is free to join, and you just have to check the notices to grab these free boots. Remember, group notices only last 2 weeks, so don’t wait.

witchygreen_009

Lastly, I wanted to show that it’s not always flying monkeys that we wicked witches use as companions. I just so happened to find the cutest little pumpkin headed ghost in my travels. His name is George, but he is so cute, that I call him Georgie. He is available, for free, at the !Ohmai store. He was created during a livestream tutorial for mesh making here in SL, and since he turned out so nice, Anya Ohmai, the creator, decided to bring him inworld and give him away to everyone. Warning, he does moan and groan a lot, but I think it’s ghost for ‘look how cute I am’.

Now before I leave, I just wanted to mention the perfect green skin I am wearing. Unfortunetely, it does not quite fall in our L$75 and under guidelines, but, it is such a great deal, I couldn’t not tell you all. The lovely Lumiya Rae of Lumae has put out 3 versions of the beautiful Niska skin, in the ghoulish Wicked tone, for only L$100 each! Each skin comes with 5 options for eyebrows, all the appliers you could ever ask for, and even the cute pointed ears I have on. Now you see why I had to mention it. You have until November 6th to get them at this price, and then they go up to L$425 each.

Alrighty, I think this cool witch is done for now. My soup is starting to smell a little less like soup, and more like a burnt potion. Oops! That’s what I get for not paying attention. *cackles again* I am going to go try to save it. Until next time, TTFN:)

PSYCHO Zombie Hunter!

Zombie Hunter PruI hope you’ve had a fabulous weekend Fab Free! So today, I thought I’d just have a little fun and play dress-up, Halloween style. Zombies are huge this year, if you’re not a zombie, why not be a zombie hunter? With the Wayward Halloween Gacha  items from Psycho Byts you can do just that! This gruesome gacha has all the gory accessories any zombie hunter could need.

Zombie Hunter Pru 1

The Psycho Byts machine at the Wayward Halloween Gacha  event is just 50 lindens per play. Each of the items is fully mesh, and some include a texture change hud. Starting with the hokey mask, this iconic horror accessory can be textured plain or bloody. The default position is over the face, but I edited the position to be as shown in the photo. Looks like I escaped the zombies just in time, these creepy severed zombie arms are animated to wiggle as if they were still “alive”. Every zombie hunter needs a weapon, and this machete is just the thing! The weapon comes with a hud so the machete can be clean or bloody, and includes an animation to switch from holding it out to holding it up over your shoulders. For an added creepiness factor, one of the Psycho Byts gacha prizes in this set are these monstrous zombie eyes. The eyes include a color change hud as well, with 3 color options. Lastly, if you need a souvenir of your zombie kills, you can score a necklace of ears, or this ghastly pail complete with the zombie head floating in blood. There are a few additional prizes in this gacha set that I didn’t show, so I’ve included a photo of the key below. To add a little to this glam-goth zombie hunter look of mine, I also picked up a cross lip applier by Mad’ on the Marketplace for just 15 lindens. The set includes lip appliers for TMP, Catwa, Lelutka, and Slink heads.

Welcome to my Nightmare

Don’t ya love it when a look just comes together effortlessly?

Welcome to my Nightmare

I popped over to the “Your Worst Nightmare Halloween Gacha” from Gacha Good Events yesterday and believe me, it’s only a nightmare in choosing which gacha to play first.  So this look… I played Shae’s Boutique’s ‘Beautiful Skull Dress’ machine first and pulled this gorgeous sequined gown first thing. Wow1 Perfect… I like this, I says to me. Then the very next machine was AccessoriZe’s ‘Skull Cameo ring and, bingo.. I had a look going. But I couldn’t stop there…

Next up was Aylce Project’s ‘Nikki’ for this lovely red and black look. There are a bunch of colors with black for the common prizes and the Rares are a set of three HUDs and the Ultra Rare is a full HUD set. All that for 50L per play.

Loordes of London supplied the next ‘perfect’ play with their ‘Nubian Queen bangles. There are five colors to win and the Rare is a pack of all colors. And at only 20L per play, you can easily collect all of them!

Last but not least is this spooky sweet hair clip, the “Rotten Rose” from Isabelle Sperber. I love the creepy little skull at the heart of the rose. I have a feeling I’ll be wearing this one long after Halloween is over.

Welcome to my Nightmare

The Worst Nightmare Halloween Gacha Fair runs until October 31st so grab the Taxi here and check it out!

A little trick-or-treating with Skel-Calle, at Havenhollow.

BOO!

Did I scare you? I’m sorry if I did. Honestly, I am just trying to un-scare myself, and what better way to do that then to scare all of you Fabbies. You see, I decided to go trick-or-treating early, and ended up falling through a trap door in the woods, into a maze-like dungeon that I barely escaped, only to stumble out into a graveyard…where it was raining! I know right. The things you go through to get a little candy, but they told me the house giving away the biggest chocolate bar was in there. Luckily for me, and for you bargain lovers, I had put my costume together with a great freebie, and cheapie, and looked great while all of this was going on.

trickORtreat_001

First of all, I know you are eyeing up my cute dress and tights. Those of you familiar with G Field, know that every Halloween, there is always a fun outfit put out as a free gift, and my skeleton bib dress and matching tights are what you can get this year. The dress is mesh, in the standard sizes, and also comes with flat chested versions. The tights are on system layers, as well as having an applier hud included for SLink and Maitreya. If you are in the G Field subscribo group, you probably already have this in your inventory, however, if you aren’t, or your IM’s capped (like mine did) you can head over to the store, and there is a nice little display with this gift, for free, for everyone, as well as past Halloween outfits, also still free.

trickORtreat2

Wanting to add a little more red to my almost monotone costume, I lucked out while wandering around the The Nightmare Event, when I found the Alice Project’s booth. They have gory Halloween versions of  5 of their  hairs. For a small L$50, you will get a limited 5 colour pack of your choice of these now blood-soaked Halloween Massacre versions. I went with the sweet ponitailed Kumi, totally turned creepy with the blood. If blood is not what you are looking for, they do have the nice clean versions of all of the same hairs there for you too, set at their usual price. But come on…how can you say no to blood soaked hair in October! LOL.

trickORtreat_003

Now, I did mention that before my scary ordeal,  I had started out trick-or-treating. The cute candy bucket I am holding, as well as the handy flashlight, are both free gifts from this years Havenhollow set up. It’s a fun little neighbourhood for kids and adults of all ages where you can go door to door and if you are lucky, the kind residents will give you candy, and this year, it is actually hosted on an LEA sim, which is Linden Endowment for the Arts (hooray for that). Just beware of the cute, costumed, little girl by the entrance to the woods, she is the one to give you the flashlight so you can venture into the darkness, and then you know what happens…trap door, dungeon…yeah…scare fest! As this is an all ages sim, the candy bucket and flashlight both come in multiple sizes, so they should fit most hands. This build only sticks around for the Halloween season, and then it will be gone for another year. So set your windlight to region default, turn up your sounds, and explore!

trickORtreat_004

OK, I think I have managed to come down from my scare, the candy from trick-or-treating has helped, I won’t lie. LOL. So that is it for me for now, but you know I will be back, I can’t stay away from all of you…or the great freebies and deals. So, until the next time, TTFN!

PS: I just wanted to personally say, thank you to all of the FabFree family who made it known that they wanted FabFree to stick around by showing all of us so much love. I love being able to share the fun of bargain hunting with all of you, and was so excited when the decision was made to keep the FabFree blog open. Here’s to many more years of freebies and deals in SL!

Dia De Glitteratti

Dia De Glitterati

Hello Fab Free! I had a lot of fun with the most recent group gift at Glitterati by Sapphire, and I think you will too! The October group gift at Glitterati by Sapphire is this fun mesh cocktail dress with the festive cobweb applique. I think this dress makes the perfect main piece to a great Halloween costume or a fun dress for a Day of the Dead party. Whatever the occasion, this dress is too cute to pass up. The Glitterati by Sapphire group is a one time join fee of 100 lindens, however the monthly group gift makes it worth the small expense.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Sweaters and Coffee

It’s almost Fri-yay! Hello Fab Free, I hope you’ve had a wonderful day so far. Things are about to get a little bit better. Tres Blah has some new group gifts out, just in time for the Halloween season. If you’re like me, Halloween is definitely a season and not just a holiday at the end of the month. The Tres Blah group is a one time join fee of 100 lindens. Upon joining members gain access to these gifts and a few past group gifts, not to mention all future group gifts.

These cropped sweaters are super cute, and have a great texture. They come in standard sizes and include matching alphas. Nerd that I am, I’d be tempted to wear them as long as the weather is cold! In addition to these fun sweaters, Tres Blah has your caffeine fix covered. The “Coffee to Go” is also one of their FREE group gifts. The cute to-go cup is animated with a drink animation, and has a little emblem on it that says “All We Need is Love and Coffee”.  Pick up these great gifts, and more at Tres Blah with your Tres Blah group tag.
