It’s Not a Trick!

Trick_002

It’s not a trick!

Treat or….. Trick! I love a good trick but this Trick tank top by 1 Hundred is all treat since it is a FREE gift at the Wash Cart Sale! You simply go to the 1 Hundred cart and buy it for 0L! No trick involved! While you’re there, stop to look at the 10L offerings, there are lots of cute things to buy (I plan to show off one or two in a post soon!). In the meantime, enjoy this tank top! It comes in system layers as well as a universal Omega applier for mesh bodies.

More JellyRoll!

I showed off the JellyRoll Snuggle Sweaters in my post {here} but I couldn’t resist picking up the creator’s FREE gift that was sitting by the cart at the Cart Wash Sale. I was thrilled with the little set of Black Widow Ear Cuffs. A little tweak of adjustment and they fit my Catwa mesh ears just perfectly without any trouble at all. Aren’t they cute! Just buy them for 0L, like all the gifts currently out at the Wash Cart Sale for this anniversary round!

Hello there Fab Free’rs! I feel like I’ve been away too much too often lately. I apologize for that. That said, I love this time of year! Once I even attempted to wear something Halloween or fall related every day for the entire month of October. It was an epic fail, no one should ever have that much orange in the closet, but it was fun trying. lol This cute sweater reminded me of that attempt, and my love for the season. I hope you like it as much as I do.

A Halloween Two-fer

One of the most recent group gifts at Caboodle is a pair of Halloween themed sweaters. These FREE group gift sweaters are exactly the type of sweater I’d want on a cold casual autumn day. They are made to look a little over-sized, and the texture looks incredibly soft. Along with the cute ghosts shown in the photo, there is a second sweater with little skulls in place of the ghosts. The sweaters come in several mesh sizes, and the Caboodle group is just 25 lindens to join.

Mesh Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass, Belleza Freya

A Manicure to Match

I always enjoy when my nail polish matches my outfit. It doesn’t often work out that way but this time I came across the perfect polish! The Makeover Room group gift from Entice is a set of cute Halloween themed nail appliers, including these b00-tiful little ghosts. There are 6 frightfully cute Halloween polish options to choose from. The Makeover Room group is FREE to join, and you’ll find this gift at the landing point for the event.

Appliers Included: Slink, Maitreya, Belleza, Omega

Here are all the details, Enjoy!

Ghost Hunter

Ghost Hunter

A Hunting We Will Go

Hello fabulous readers! The weekend is almost here, and I am sooo glad!

SL Halloween season is in full-swing, so I decided to take a break from RL work to do a little hunting. But boy, I had no idea what I was getting myself into!

An Easy Find

Thankfully, my first find didn’t require much any hunting at all. I just popped into the store and grabbed it, and you can too! Just head over to S@BBiA and join the FREE in-world group to snap up this festive outfit.

The Halloween Gift includes the SleeveRibbon Dress, which is a one-size-fits-all mesh dress with an alpha layer. The pumpkin-orange booties are included and are sized for Maitreya and Slink medium/mid feet. They even come with a texture-change HUD to change the socks from purple and black to white and black or remove them completely.

Level of Difficulty = 11

And now for something completely different!

One of my favorite nail designers, Hello Dave, is holding a HUGE hunt on the Moochie sim. My hunting gear – the flashlight and cute bag – are both from the Halloween Hunt 2017 information kit. To get yours, head over to the Hello Dave main store and click the sign. You don’t even have to be a member of the in-world group to participate.

The information folder includes:

  • a flashlight
  • 8 different trick-or-treat bags
  • a map of Moochie so you won’t get lost like I did
  • a notecard list of all the hunt items you must find
  • a clickable HUD to help you keep track of your finds

I’ve done some difficult hunts in my day, but wow, this one is hard! There are 42 different items to find (yes, you read that right), and don’t even bother trying to cheat with an area search because the hunt items have all been renamed. Some are easy to find, and some are… well, let’s just say, after 4 days, I’m still looking for them. :-/

If you hang in there and find all the hunt items, you will receive some awesome prizes:

  1. 20 Exclusive Hello Dave nail palettes, compatible with Maitreya, Omega, Slink, Vista, Belleza, and Empire.
  2. 500L store credit to spend at Hello Dave.
  3. Your name, immortalized on the blood board of WINNERS for all to see.

Since I haven’t found all 42 hunt items yet, I can’t show you any of the prizes. But I wanted to make you aware of this hunt so you can get an early start. Trust me, you’ll need it!

One piece of advice: make sure you allow plenty of time for everything to completely rez. I found that each time I went back to the sim, new items showed up, and I was able to find more.

Hello Dave Halloween Hunt 2017

Even if you don’t finish the hunt, the Halloween-themed Moochie sim is a lot of fun to explore and enjoy (although, a bit laggy at times), with plenty of scenic spots for photos.

On a side note: Hello Dave is also participating in the “SL’s Top Haunted Places Hunt,” so be on the lookout for a little gift box that you just might stumble across without trying (I did!). You can grab an info notecard in the store, and there’s a hint-giver at the Halloween Hunt landing spot.

Happy (haunted) hunting!  😈

Oubliette Halloween Hunt

OublietteWelcome back to the blog Fab Free’rs! I have to say autumn is the one time of year that I am most excited about hunts in Second Life. I love all things fall or Halloween related. Maybe it’s because I was born this time of year, both in real life and in Second Life. You might laugh at me for this, but no joke, I started decorating my house for Halloween the second week in September. Haha Needless to say, I was super excited to hear about the Halloween Hunt at Oubliette.

In celebration of the season Oubliette is having a Halloween Hunt with 10 total hunt prizes hidden in the Oubliette shop and the grounds surrounding. There are 8 home furniture and decor items, and 2 lounge-wear items. Each hunt prize is just 10 lindens. There are no group tags required for this hunt, everyone can participate. There is a playful occult-ish theme to these hunt items. If you’re unfamiliar with Oubliette, the style is sometimes a tad macabre and always beautiful. Every one of the decor or furniture items in the above photo is included in this hunt from the darkly whimsical embroidery to the sleeping kitty on the rug. The black and purple Victorian era inspired chair has a few male and female sit poses, the one in the photo however is from Pru’s animation override-r.
Oubliette 2
Along with the lovely home goods, this beautiful maxi style off-the-shoulder dress and matching slippers are part of the Oubliette Home Halloween Hunt. There is something a little bit pagan and a little bit bohemian about this comfy lounge-wear. Wearing these items makes me wanna curl up with a good book and a warm mug of coffee, thankfully the coffee and books are part of the Oubliette hunt too! Both clothing items come in several sizes for easy fitting. These fun Halloween themed items will be available for hunting at Oubliette through the entire month of October. You’ll be looking for little poison bottles, and don’t forget to hunt around the grounds outside the Oubliette store as well, specifically the cemetery. Happy Hunting Fab Free!

Dress Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus)
Shoe Sizes Included: Belleza, Slink, Maitreya

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Creepy and Cute

Pru OOPSCreepy

Hello hello Fab Free’rs! I don’t know about you, but I’m definitely one of those people who thinks of Halloween as being more of a season than a single day. I’m in a spooky festive mood already this year. I think these cute sweater dresses from OOPS are a fun way to ease into the season. They come together as a FREE group gift for all OOPS group members. I really like the off the shoulder style, however I think the term dress is relative in this case. My body shape would definitely not allow me to wear this sweater as a dress! The OOPS group has a one time join fee of 10 linden and there are several previous group gifts still available.

Mesh Sizes Included: Ebody, Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), TMP

Pru 187187

Next up this three ring septum piercing is a FREE group gift from Boutique 187. I could wear this piercing every day, no matter if my outfit was dressy or casual. This group gift at Boutique 187 comes with a color change hud that lets you choose between 6 colors and you can change each ring separately. The Boutique 187 group has a one time join fee of 187 linden. Along with this piercing gift, there are several past gifts still available.

Infected Zombie Hunter

Infected Zombie HunterI found my Halloween costume, and just in time too! It seems like zombies and zombie hunters are everywhere this year, and for good reason. Like the vampires of years past, zombies have taken over television and movies in a big way. That said, when I saw this wicked bloody tank top from COCO, my mind instantly went to zombie land. Thankfully, Second Life is awash with creativity, and I was able to find most of what I needed to put this look together without letting go of too many lindens.

I mentioned the tank top as the centerpiece that inspired this “Infected Zombie Hunter” look. It’s one of several FREE group gifts available at COCO. Before I go into detail about the top, when going to the COCO store to add this to your wardrobe, be mindful of which section you’re shopping in. The COCO store is huge, and there are sections dedicated to their doll avatars as well as regular avatars. You’ll find a version of this top in both sections, so don’t get fooled like I did. Make sure you’re in the section with ladies clothing and not doll clothes. LOL That little bit of information out of the way, once you’re in the right place you’ll find a full wall of group gifts with a group joiner near by. The COCO group is FREE to join. Once you’re wearing your COCO group tag, all the gifts are FREE as well, just click the vendors. This bloody tank top gift is fully mesh, and comes in several body fit sizes, and standard mesh sizes.Infected Zombie Hunter CloseAnyone who knows me knows it would be completely out of character for me to go all gore and no glam, even on Halloween. I needed to be a little bloody but still wanted to keep it pretty, Izzie’s had just the thing. These bloody eyes and lips are from an applier package I found by Izzie’s for FREE on the Marketplace. The listing says it’s a limited time Halloween gift, so I’d imagine after today (Oct. 31st) the price will go up. These delicate blood drips can be applied either to the eyes, the lips, or both in 3 shades of red. This FREE set includes appliers for as well as classic system layers. I’m really thrilled with the end result, so don’t miss out on this fun bit of gore by Izzie’s while you can still get it at this fantastic freebie.

Speaking of the Marketplace, I also stumbled across this set of bloody eyes by Inkheart. These mesh eyes were just too perfect to pass up, especially since they are just 1 linden. These “vampire” eyes come in 3 mesh sizes, along with matching system layers. I think they would be spook-tacular with any ghoulish costume!

Continuing on with the idea of being glamorous at all times, this manicure from ZOZ was the perfect finishing touch. Who says a Zombie Hunter can’t have perfectly polished claws?! This particular shade of glossy red is part of the Fab Free exclusive group gift at ZOZ. Just wear your Fab Free tag and click the vendor on the circulation desk at the ZOZ main store, and you’ll be sent your FREE gift. The set has also been featured in one of Katherine’s beautiful posts, and of course in the Fab Free Group Gift Listing by Love.  The Fab Free Group Gift List shows the full set of fall colors that are included in this gorgeous nail polish gift.

Happy Halloween Fab Free!! Here are the details.

Maybe I’m a Joker

Wasabi Pills GiftWell Hello There Fab Free’rs! Welcome back to the Fabulously Free in SL Blog. I have to say the closer it gets to Halloween the more excited I get. No matter how old I am, Halloween will always be my favorite holiday, whether I dress up or not. Speaking of dressing up, I’ve got some fun freebies to share with you. This look is made up of a FREE subscriber gift from Wasabi Pills, and a FREE group gift from Dulce Secrets.

This purple and green hair with the stylized bangs and pointed buns by Wasabi Pills made me think of a female interpretation of The Joker. haha I know if I were going to dress up as The Joker for Halloween, I’d certainly go for hair like this. I like to keep things a little more on the glamorous side. To add this playful hairstyle to your collection, simply head over to Wasabi Pills, and join the subscriber outside the main entrance. If you’re already a Wasabi Pills subscriber member, like me, click the subscriber kiosk and get this FREE gift delivered from the message history.
Dulce Secrets GiftThe moment I saw this frilly embellished outfit from Dulce Secrets, I had to have it! The widely varied style elements make this FREE group gift really versatile. What makes it even more versatile is the fact that it’s 3 separate pieces. The jacket, the corset, and the skirt can all be worn separately as well as together. Each piece comes in standard mesh sizes. I love the darkly whimsical look of this outfit, and the little details in the zippers, and buckles.  You could easily dress it up to be anything in this outfit,  from a super villain to a steampunk pirate and everything in between. The Dulce Secrets group is FREE to join, and you’ll find this FREE gift at the back of the store near the Midnight Mania board.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Ombre Polka Dots

Polka dotsHey There Fab Free’rs! Welcome back, and thanks for being here. So I want to tell you, I’ve tried my darnedest to get a really cool in world shot of this outfit at various locations around the Second Life grid, and my laptop is just not having it this week! It’s a cranky little thing some days. I really wanted to show off this group gift dress from !gO! paired with the group gift hair from redMint as much as I could. These plain background shots will have to do. Both of these gifts are beautifully unique, hopefully my photos do them enough justice.

Starting with this messy long pony tail hairstyle from redMint, how lovely is this style? I adore the idea of a long messy hairdo, it reminds me of ’90s grunge fashion. I also really do enjoy the hair color of this FREE group gift; the group is FREE to join. The color is a pale grey with hints of blue-green, and purple. It instantly made me think of the “sterling” hair color that has been showing up all over my social media feeds. As per usual with most redMint gifts, this one comes in the color shown only. You’ll find two sizes however.

This ombre orange and purple polka-dotted dress with it’s white collar and cuffed sleeves makes me think of Wednesday Addams, and gorgeous fall sunsets. Once again, !gO! has put out a beautiful gift for their group members. This is the sort of outfit that would be perfect for a Halloween party that you didn’t want to wear a costume to, but still wanted to be festive. The dress comes in body specific sizes as well as standard mesh sizes.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Be My Frankenstein

Be My Frankenstein Hello Fab Free’rs! It’s good to be back from a long weekend away. I’m super excited to finally be able to share this look with you! Can you believe we’ve got just 6 days until Halloween? Do you have your costume ready? I still have no idea how I’ll dress up. The main reason I can’t decide on something is because there are so many cool costume ideas. I am however leaning toward a pin-up style Bride of Frankenstein thanks to these FREE and inexpensive items from Clawtooth, Stix, and Vero Modero.

Starting with this iconic hairstyle from Clawtooth, it doesn’t get much more “Bride of Frankenstein” than this! The “Bride of Frankie” hair is on sale at Clawtooth for just 25 lindens. It’s also a fatpack, so you can change it up a little if you want to put your own twist on the look and go with a hair color other than black. I also found I was able to match a Catwa hairbase (part of the Catwa head features) really well to this frighteningly fun hairstyle by Clawtooth. Don’t miss out on this limited time offer!

Stix put out a group gift this month as well. This FREE gift is a pretty set of fall/Halloween lip appliers. Included in the set are 3 lip colors, the green and black version shown, a solid smi-gloss looking black, and a pretty baby pink shade. All three shades come in an applier hud for Catwa, Lelutka, Genesis, TMP, and Omega compatible heads, as well as classic system layers. You’ll find this lovely gift for FREE on the group gift wall at Stix. It’s to the right as you enter the shop. The “PixyStix” group is FREE to join. You’ll also find a few lucky letter boards, and several previous gifts still available, just don’t forget to wear your group tag!

The finishing touch is another FREE group gift, this one from Vero Modero. I have seen various versions of this blood drippy necklace a lot of places in real life and I was so excited to see it as a group gift in second life. This fun choker is unisex, the resize scripts allow it to be sized to fit any avatar. The Vero Modero group is FREE to join, making this fun gift FREE as well. All you need is group space.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

I love October in Second Life.  The changing colors, haunted houses, amazing costumes, and the HUNTS!  Among many great events this fall is the CroM Halloween hunt!  Hidden around the store are 5 pumpkins priced at $5 L each, and each one contains a high quality Halloween themed item, including this dress (sized for standard sizes and most mesh bodies!)  The pumpkins are not too hard to find, and every single one has a great piece of clothing in it.

Snapshot_003

Kathryn recently showed you a lovely lip applier from Shiny Stuffs, and I was lucky enough to score a few freebies from there myself!  Currently in store Shiny Stuffs is giving away a Queen of Hearts makeup appliers set, and a Halloween Maitreya Nail applier fatpack!  I am modeling the spikey mascara and one of the 3 versions of eye liner here, as well as the candy skulls nails.  These little tidbits will make any Halloween costume pop.
