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.

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.

Sugar Doll

Sugar Doll Hello hello Fab Free’rs! I’m not sure if I am excited or a little disappointed that the month is already half over and Halloween is a mere 2 weeks away. I genuinely enjoy this time of year, and I hate to see it fly by so quickly. That said, all the more reason to enjoy every minute that remains! Little Bones, Letis Tattoo, and Petite Mort have all set out gorgeous FREE group gifts recently. Without a shadow of doubt these gifts are among my favorite of the October gifts I’ve come across thus far. I’m sure you’ll enjoy them as much as I do.
Sugar Doll 2 Starting from top to bottom, this pretty strait hairstyle is the most recent group gift at Little Bones. The Dion hair at Little Bones is a full fatpack of hair colors, and has some unique features. This simple yet elegant style also includes a hud that allows you to change the way the hair lays. You can set the style to be over both shoulders, over one shoulder on either side, or behind both shoulders. Additionally the hud is scripted with additional animations that make your avatar appear to be touching or playing with his or her hair. It really is well done and a fun playful addition. The Little Bones group carries a one time join fee of 100 lindens.

Next up, the whimsical sugar skull style face-paint is a recent group gift from Letis Tattoo. This FREE group gift includes a classic system layer, an Omega applier, and a Catwa applier for the sugar skull face with 3 color options. Aside from the obvious artistry and imagination of the sugar skull face, I love the culture and legend behind the imagery.  Not to mention this sort of face can be worn with any sort of outfit and not betray the spirit of Dia De Los Muertos. To get this FREE gift, head over to Letis and join the FREE-to-join in world group and pick up your FREE gift.

My personal favorite part of this look saved for last, this beautiful dress is the October group gift at Petite Mort. There isn’t anything about this dark elegant dress that I don’t like. The skirt has a look of stars peeking through clouds in the night, and even the bodice has a faint delicate pattern. Once again I find myself using the word whimsical to describe the gifts in this post. The gift is FREE to all Petite Mort group members. The group has a one time join fee of 75 lindens. This dress alone is well worth the join fee in my opinion. The gift comes in standard mesh sizes, as well as a fit for Slink Physique, Slink Hourglass, and Maitreya Lara.

I genuinely hope you like this Sugar Doll look as much as I do.

Falling for Sweaters

Coming soon to FabFree

The days are getting shorter, and the air is getting cooler (allegedly, unless you live in a southern climate like me :P).  It’s my favorite time of the year, cute and cozy sweater weather!  I’m in love with this Halloween-y sweater dress group gift from S@BBiA (free to join).  To round out the outfit, I added pieces from Sn@tch’s 7 Seas Fishing outfit, Coven.  Shown here are the boots, leggings, earrings and choker necklace.  (If you would like to see the rest, check out Love’s Post!).  You will need a 7 Seas fishing pole to get these items.  They start at $100 L, and are worth the investment!
Coming soon to FabFree

My favorite outfits in Second Life are definitely the ones I can see myself wearing in real life, and I would wear this one everyday!

Whispering Secrets

Sharing Secrets Hello Fab Free’rs, thanks for stopping by! Today’s post is something fun and playful, at least I think so. Sanarae is celebrating an anniversary, and the shoppers are benefiting. Almost every vendor has a FREE gift to all Sanarae group members. While there are a ton of lovely gifts, the gift from Pixicat happens to be my personal favorite. Additionally I came across the cutest gacha by Katatonik. This adorably creepy pet makes for the perfect little friend to whisper all your secrets to.
A New Friend It’s no secret I’m excited about the month of October being so near. There’s a meme floating around the Internet that says something about it being Halloween Season rather than Football Season. I definitely agree with that sentiment. The Sanarae gift from Pixicat is this cute little short sleeved bat print top with the orange leather skirt. The top and skirt can be worn separately as well as together. This FREE gift comes in standard mesh sizes, as well as a few body specific sizes. There isn’t anything I don’t love about this cute outfit. It’s perfect for Halloween Season! All you need to do to get this amazing gift is join the Sanarae group. The group is FREE to join.

Now let’s talk about the octopus kitty floating over Pru’s shoulder. This half octopus half kitty follower pet is just the right mix of cute and creepy. This gacha creature by Katatonik is equipped with resize scripts so you can make her just about whatever size you like. Once you’re  happy with her, the touch menu will also allow you to remove the scripts. There are several versions of the Tendril Kitty from Katatonik at Sanarae, and at 50 lindens per play, it was a gacha I just couldn’t pass up. I may even need to go back to Sanarae and collect a few of the others, they are just that cute! lol

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.
