Sweet but Psycho

Sweet but Psycho

Oh hello there Fab Free’rs! Welcome back to the blog. I’m not plotting anything sweetly sinister, I swear. I am however happy to share a few more of the Kustom 9 event gifts with you. My long-sleeved top and this doughnut clad knife are both free at Kustom 9. You will need to join the free-to-join Kustom 9 group and wear the group tag to claim your free gifts.

AsteriodBox

I love the look of this top by AsteroidBox. The thin stripes, slightly pointed sleeves, and leather straps give it a lot of style. There’s also a well done oval cut-out in the back of the shirt for some added detail. This top is free at Kustom 9, just wear the Kustom 9 group tag.

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

Zenith

This could-be threatening knife stacked with doughnuts and tied with a sweet bow is free at Kustom 9. It’s made by Zenith and has a hold pose that can be turned off or on by touch menu. It also has a hud with a few options to color the doughnuts, and the ribbon.

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.

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

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.

Horror Vibes

Horror Vibes

Hello hello Fab Free’rs, of the many many things I love about what I like to call Halloween season are the scary movies. I’m particularly fond of classic horror, and I can’t help but love the horror comedy smashup that is Young Frankenstein. What does all of that have to do with this post? Why the pillows of course! I have a few fabulous freebie finds to share for this post. I hope you like them.

MoonPhase

These too-cool-for-words pillows and the cheeky embroidery wall art pieces are a free group gift at MoonPhase. These decor items are all every bit as awesome in person as they are in photos. The MoonPhase group is free to join. Also, there are other free group gifts available.
Moonphase Freegroup Gift!

ChicModa

In addition to the fantastic decor items, I picked up the latest group gift at ChicModa. My cropped tee reads “Drink Up Witches” and I think it is so so cute. The ChicModa group is free to join for a limited time, so do not wait to join!

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass, MeshBody Legacy
ChicModa Group Gift // Drink Up Witches Top
Project Crystal’s Fashion

Lastly, a new-to-me shop called Project Crystal’s Fashion has a pair of perfect-for Halloween body suits for just 1 linden on the Marketplace. I did attempt to find an in-world location, but was unsuccessful. I’ve always liked the idea of wearing certain more lingerie-like pieces as outerwear in a fashion sense. This is for me one of those “fashion experiments” if you will. I wore one of the BOM layer bodysuits under the high-cropped top from ChicModa.

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!

Hoodie Season

Hoodie Season

There has been a lot of talk about “sweater weather” as the season shifts from summer to autumn. This year I think I’ll refer to it as “hoodie season.” At the moment little sounds nicer than a comfy cozy hoodie and a crisp cool autumn afternoon.

Gabriel

My over-sized hoodie by Gabriel is a free gift (no group needed) at Neo Japan. This blue and purple gradient hoodie is unisex. So guys, don’t hesitate to pick this free gift up also! I also very much like the open shoulders, and the giant kangaroo pocket. I think I just might live in this for a while.

Female Sizes Included: Meshbody Legacy, Maitreya Lara

Male Sizes Included: Meshbody Legacy Male, Belleza Jake, Signature (Gianni, Geralt)

e.marie

Did you peep the cool earrings I have on? They are the latest group gift at e.marie. I love this take on the classic hoop earring. I think these are elegant enough to wear with formal looks, and still subtle enough to be worn casually. The e.marie group is 50L to join. This group gift includes a hud that allows you to pick from several metal choices, and these earrings can be resized.

“Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I’d fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns.” – George Eliot

Needless to say, I’m so excited that my favorite time of year is here at last. Bring on all things autumn, I’m ready! For this post I’ve got freebies from PosEd and LYBRA to share with you.

Big Love

Big Love

Love is an adventure. It can make you feel 50 feet tall, and capable of anything. Perhaps that’s why I felt a bit bold and adventuresome while wearing this dress by DM. It’s the perfect casual dress, comfortable, not too short, but not too long, and just the right mix of edgy and cute.

Lucky for us this dress also happens to be a free group gift at DM. The gift includes a color change hud with a few solid color options for the main part of the dress. The DM group is free to join.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara & Petite

Also, my starry violet eyes are from a mid-week “Golden Days Weekly Sales” sale offer at Madame Noir. Blue told me about the sale, and I of course had to check it out. Madame Noir has two sets of beautifully detailed eyes on sale for 55 lindens from now until the 25th. You will need to join the “Golden Days Weekly Sales” group to use the vendor. The group is free to join.

Blustery Day

Blustery Day

It’s been cooler out, and today the winds came. For the first time this year it actually felt like autumn in my part of the world. For that I am most thankful. I’m also thankful that I can be here, with you, sharing fabulous things I find. For this post I actually didn’t need to traverse the grid to get my hands on a few goodies. Instead I took advantage of Second Life’s version of distance shopping, the Marketplace. Every now and then I take some time to poke through Marketplace listings just to see what I might find. For this look my hair, my top, and my manicure are all Marketplace dollarbies. I hope you enjoy them!

Pr!tty

This decidedly wind-blown hairstyle is a 1 linden fatpack by Pr!tty on the Marketplace. It comes in a rigged and an unrigged version so you can resize the unrigged version. I really like these types of styles for photography. Since it’s a fatpack you’ll also get all the hair color choices available.

Catastrophic Creations

I love cacti and succulents. So it goes without question that I had to have this dollarbie Marketplace find from Catastrophic Creations. The rainbow colored flower pots are their nod toward Pride, which makes me like the shirt even more. This top is a unisex shirt that comes in a BOM system layer and a Maitreya Lara applier only.

TOASTED

Finally, my pink and bluish purple manicure is a dollarbie Marketplace as well. The single hud will apply the polish to your fingernails and toenails for a cute matching set. The tri-color polish comes in a Maitreya applier only.

Hello there Fab Free’rs. I hope Monday is treating you well. Hopefully this post can help make your day a little brighter. I’ve got lovely group gifts from Opia and Riddell to share with you. A little freebie shopping sounds like an excellent way to start the week to me!

Opia

The ruffled coral pink halter top I’m wearing is a free group gift by the Opia brand for the Poison Rouge group. The group is 30 linden to join. My favorite part of this halter style top is the ribbon that ties it up in the back. The group joiner is located right next to the gift vendor.

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

Riddell 

The little tattoos around my eye are a free group gift from Riddell. The wording above my eyebrow reads “life goes on” and there are definitely times in life when I feel like that is important to remember. The Riddell group is free to join.
