Glitter and Pearls

Mouthy_001

Set the mood…

Set the tone… set the mood… glitter and jewels and pearls and all those things that make you feel sexy… are part of the Sex Up Your Party Hunt. I have two items to share with you that will put you in the mood for a party yourself… I know they made me feel sexy wearing them.

Glitter lips.

Kodiak is the 2nd stop on this hunt but the first 2L prize I want to mention as I love these glittery, Galaxy Moon lipstick make up applier that comes in an omega applier, suitable for most mesh heads. Just look for that naughty pink item and buy it for 2L and this lip applier is all yours.

Noms.

The first stop on the hunt was at Sour Pickles, where I picked up my Nom Nom Pearls. These beautiful black pearls are perfect for keeping your mouth busy so it doesn’t run away with you at the party! I only had to do a little editing to get these to fit my mesh head just perfectly. It was no trouble at all! These too only required a little hunting time and 2L to get the prize.

Waiting for Christmas…

I lost my boots in a snow drift! Thankfully I have on my warm winter socks from Graffitiwear. Whew! These woolen beauties saved the day and are cozy too. And they come in sizes to fit…

  • TMP
  • Tonic
  • Ocacin
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass & Physique

They are a Christmas gift currently at the main-store. You’ll need your Graffitiwear group tag, but the group is only a mere 5L to join, and there are 3 other group gifts currently out to pick up, including a sweater and some stockings.

A Christmas Sweater

To top off my look, I hunted down the free Women Only Hunt prize from Pink Cream Pie. I was rewarded with this gorgeous sweater called the “Ugly Annie” sweater. How could they possibly call it ugly?! It’s amazing! It comes in sizes to fit Maitreya, Hourglass, Freya, and Isis.

Keep warm and cozy everyone!

Clueless

Clueless_001

Clueless

Sometimes when I’m trying to find a freebie I’m clueless about where to start. I get overwhelmed by all the different ones out there and I’m never quite sure which ones I want to showcase! But when I ran across the Nightmare Hunt and the free fatpack of hair called “Clueless” that is the gift at Besom… I knew I had to show it to all of you fabulous readers!

If you teleport to the landing point, navigate to the Besom store (there are several stores in the area) and then hunt down what looks like a stack of three hat boxes in three colors… buy it for 0L, then this gorgeous hairstyle in the picture above is yours in a full fatpack of Besom colors! It is well worth the hunting time in my opinion for this free style.

Vintage style

I tend to be eclectic in my tastes… enjoying everything from medieval roleplay to Gothic to vintage and I found this cute pair of vintage print pants as a Third Life Gift at WellMade. If you’re not already a member of the Third Life group, it will only cost you 10L to join and gives you access to gifts across the grid, so it’s a group worth joining. And these pants are cute as a button. They also come in multiple sizes!

Pants sizes available:

  • Fitmesh XS – XL
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Belleza – Venus
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique

Come Into My Parlor

Black Widow_001

Take a seat in my parlor dear… never mind the chair. It won’t bite… though I might…

A black widow… in several sizes

Isn’t this Black Widow chair adorable?! And it’s perfect for Halloween! Or any Gothic theme! Better yet it was only 1L as part of the Bump in the Night Hunt and once you find the crow at Little to Large (or you can pay 25L at the sign if you don’t want to hunt) you get several size chairs as a bonus! You’ll get the chair for full size avatars as shown, petite avatars and tinies as well! How cool is that!

It’s also only 2 prim and has several very nice sitting animations.

KoKoLoReS has their October group gift hair out and it is a pretty and chic stylish short do. The group is 250L to join, but the creator very generously puts out a new hairstyle (with a fatpack of colors) every single month for us gift hunters to pick up. You can count on a new hairstyle every month!

Some lingerie!

I found some lingerie (and a wall of past group gifts) at a new-to-me store called Bijou. This sexy black and red lingerie is perfect for the Halloween holiday… and for afterward too. The group is free to join, making the gift free too! Best yet, it accommodates all the popular mesh bodies!

Rock & Roll is Here to Stay

Rock & Roll is Here to Stay
“Rock and Roll is Here to Stay, It Will Never Die” – Danny & The Juniors

Well hello again Fab Free’rs! As always, I’m really glad you’re here. If you need a way to spend a little time, No Cabide has teamed up with DM (Dakota Modas) for a fun Rock Mini Hunt at the No Cabide main location. The hunt consists of 16 total hunt prizes that range in cost from 1 to 15 lindens each. There are 3 complete rock themed looks that include clothing, accessories, and shoes. You could also mix and match the looks to create something entirely different. Though this is a hunt, the prizes aren’t really hidden so much as scattered around the No Cabide shop in cute red hearts. Most of the clothing is meant to fit Slink or Maitreya bodies, a few will also fit Belleza bodies. I’ve included a copy of the Rock Mini Hunt poster at No Cabide for added information, along with the usual list of credits below. Happy Hunting Fab Free! Also, the hunt ends September 27th, so don’t wait too long!

Zombie Suicide Temporary FREE Group Join!

Zombie Suicide 2
Hello Fab Free! I’m super excited because I recently found out Zombie Suicide has made their in world group FREE to join for just a few days. Don’t ask me how long a few day is. I have no idea, so hurry! If you’re not familiar with the Zombie Suicide brand, it’s the definition of creepy cute clothing and accessories. You’ll really find a little bit of everything including clothing, jewelry, and makeup. Zombie Suicide group members get a 25% discount on all Zombie Suicide merchandise purchased while wearing the group tag. Also, there is an entire wall of FREE group gifts, and there are group only lucky letter boards. So along with sharing the news of Zombie Suicide’s temporary FREE group join, I also want to show off a few of the many group gifts.

I Heart Cardigans

This cozy cardigan is one of the many FREE group gifts at Zombie Suicide. It’s fully mesh and includes a color change hud that will allow you to choose between the purple color shown and and a black version. The black version mirrors the purple in that it has little purple hearts above the pockets.

Mesh Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, TMP, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Standard Mesh (xxs – L)

Zombie Suicide

Two Hearts

The cute necklace with the thin heart dangles is not one of the many group gifts, but rather a dollarbie hunt prize I stumbled across while shopping at Zombie Suicide. This prize also includes a color change hud so you can choose the color of each of the 2 hearts. There are 8 color options. I’m honestly not sure what hunt this necklace is from, but the little blue basket hunt item was easy to find considering I wasn’t even looking for it. *Hint, look low.

Choker

The choker Pru is wearing is a FREE group gift version of a choker/collar you can purchase at Zombie Suicide. It comes in several mesh sizes and includes a scripted version that has resize scripts and a non scripted version. The colors are a fun combination of purple, black, and green.

Facial Piercings

These pretty purple dermal piercings combined with the two nose studs are another FREE group gift at Zombie Suicide. These fit my Catwa mesh head very easily, which is always a plus. Additionally, there are 2 versions included in this gift, one with a shadow and one without (shown).

The Eyes Have It

Last but far from least, the pretty jewel-toned eyes are another FREE group gift at Zombie Suicide. This gift comes with a color change HUD with 3 variations of these hauntingly pretty eyes. They also include classic system layers and an alpha layer for non mesh avatars.

Goth Garage Sale Hunt Accessories

More Goth Garage Sale
Hi hi Fab Free’rs! I’m back with a few more of the hunt prizes at the Goth Garage Sale. If you’re in need of a few good Goth accessories or maybe the perfect pair of chucks, this post is for you! The above photo should have been dated circa 1998 or so, because this look has me feelin’ some ’90s fashion nostalgia. haha As I’d mentioned in my previous post about the Goth Garage Sale hunt, you’ll be hunting little black cats with glowing yellow eyes. They are hidden (some more than others) around the Goth Garage Sale event and are just 5 linden each. Don’t forget, this event and the hunt will end August 8th.
Goth Garage Sale Hunt Close

Abyssal Beast Ring

I seem to recall that creepy cool rings being popular about the time I was graduating high school. It makes sense that they would be making a come-back. This Abyssal Beast ring is the Goth Garage Sale hunt prize by Venge. With sprawling black tentacles and a bright green eye, it’s an excellent goth accessory.

Koffin Nails

Lately I have rediscovered my love of nail polish. No goth look would be complete without a darkly beautiful manicure. The pretty black and red nail polish Pru is wearing comes courtesy of Dark Passions. Their Goth Garage Sale hunt item is a goth themed manicure and pedicure applier set. The set includes 6 color options each with the little black coffin with the crescent moon.

Appliers Included: Slink, Omega, Maitreya

Familiar Necklace

Another of my favorites from the Goth Garage Sale hunt is this unisex Familiar Necklace by The Little Bat. I love the idea of having a familiar, I’d like to think mine would be a bat, or maybe a crow. This pretty necklace with its thin black chain and little pagan star comes with a texture change hud that will let you choose from 10 different black and white animal familiar photos to display in the pendant.

Eternal Heart

Call it a collar or a choker, I really like this Goth Garage Sale hunt prize from Senzafine. The aptly named Eternal Heart Choker comes in the black and red color shown with the cute heart dangle and heart shaped ring. It’s the perfect combination of goth and sweet.

Doodle Chucks

To be perfectly honest I wasn’t sure I was going to like these Doodle Chucks by Oubliette at first. Then I tried them on! I love the playful little scribbles and doodles on the black canvas of the Goth Garage Sale hunt prize shoes. They do not appear to be meant for any specific mesh feet, however the note card that came with the gift says they are unrigged and can be modded to fit Slink, Maitreya, and Venus flat feet. I had no problem wearing them with my Maitreya feet. I didn’t need to stretch or size them at all, just move them a little. Now I want to wear them with everything!

The Cross I Bare

Lilac
Hello There Fab Free’rs! I’m just going to come right out and say that Stix has just provided me with my new favorite fantasy toned skin. No contest. I love the lavender shade, and it certainly doesn’t hurt that this gorgeous purple hued skin is a FREE group gift at Stix. Needless to say once I was wearing the skin I was instantly inspired to create this cool demoness look.

Yuki as Syx

This fabulously generous group gift at Stix includes classic system layers with options for cleavage/nipples, nether regions,  and brows. Additionally there is a full set of appliers. While the body and head appliers are Omega based, they are specifically done to fit each of the different body types (Slink Pysique, Slink Hourglass, Maitreya, Belleza) rather than using one texture for all. The Stix group is FREE to join at this time. So if you aren’t already a PixyStix group member, no need to worry you can still get this amazing gift for FREE since there is not a group join fee all you need is group space!

Appliers Included: All in One Hud – Omega Appliers (Head & Body), Mesh Ear Appliers (Bentbox, Logo, Soul Uni), Heavy Cleavage Applier

Hunting at the Goth Garage Sale

I had some help creating this cool look thanks to some hunt items I picked up at the Goth Garage Sale. The Goth Garage Sale Hunt items are just 5 lindens each, and you’ll be hunting little black cats with glowing yellow eyes. Most of them are fairly easy to find. The little yellow-eyed cats are hidden/perched around the Goth Garage Sale venue, some are even hidden in the shops. The Goth Garage Sale event and Hunt end August 8th.

This Hair is Sn@tched

This sleek long hairstyle and horns set are the Goth Garage Sale Hunt prize by Sn@tch. I was pleasantly surprised to see a hairstyle from Sn@tch. The 5 linden hunt prize includes the hairstyle Drucilla with a “Goths” color hud that has 16 goth inspired hair-color options. You’ll also get the horns which can be worn separately. Horns are set up with resize scripts.

The Cross I Bare

The heavy cross Pru is wearing is another Goth Garage Sale Hunt item, this one from Psycho Barbie. The necklace fits well, is sizable, and includes a color change hud. The color hud lets you pick between black, gold, light gold, and silver. You can hunt down your 5 linden copy of the Psycho Barbie Croix necklace at the Goth Garage Sale.
Lilac 4
I went ahead and added a second photo, not just because I had so much fun with this look, I wanted to give a closer look at the third Goth Garage Sale Hunt item I used for this look. Also, it gives you a great close-up of the Yuki as Syx group gift skin from Stix, and the beautiful texture of the horns included in the Sn@tch Goth Garage Sale Hunt prize. Plus, I love the way she looks with this mad face!

Black Pearls

This detailed facial piercing set is the Goth Garage Sale Hunt prize by Black Pearls, and probably my personal favorite of the hunt items I collected. Like all the hunt prizes, this one from Black Pearls is just 5 lindens. First I want to point out that the blades along the forehead are color change, just click one and you’ll get a drop down menu with tons of color options. With just a minor adjustment to the position, the set fit my mesh head perfectly.

Here are the details, Happy Hunting Fab Free!

Hair w/optional Horns – :::Sn@tch Drucilla Hair (Goths) & Curled Horns (Black)::: – 5L GGS Hunt Prize @Goth Garage Sale
Head –  CATWA HEAD Koura Bento
Eyes – {S0NG} :: Toki // Lilac Eye
Piercings – Black Pearls – [BP] Visha v2 – 5L GGS Hunt Prize @Goth Garage Sale

Beeeeeeeee Happy!

Beeeeee Happy

Mmmmm… a slice of watermelon in the middle of summer is just the thing! Pair it up with a cute free dress, and a great pair of sunglasses and the day can’t be beat! I put my hair up out of the way to make sure it didn’t get sticky. Let me tell you all about my look today!

This great pose!

I went to check out the Honey I Shrunk the Cart Sale and Hunt and went around and picked up as many of the hidden 2L Honey Drops as I could find. I’m showing off several of my 2L finds to you in this post! One of my favorite 2L gifts was this Watermelon Patch pose prop! It comes in two sizes. One for adults (shown) and one for kids! You’re sure to enjoy taking pictures with this terrific hunt prize!

Too cool for summer!

I love this cute butter colored dress. This cute minidress is by Crazy Pastry Designs and comes in lots of sizes.

Sizes available:

  • Fitmesh XS – XL
  • TMP
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Tonic – Curvy & Fine
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

I paired the dress with a great pair of blue “Zipper” sunglasses by Closet Full of Pancake. You can get a close-up of what these look like by clicking on the Flickr picture. One of the lenses has a “zipper” in it for a unique look!

Another Hair Fair visit.

I also couldn’t resist another visit to the Hair Fair. I knew I needed an updo to keep my hair out of the sticky yummy mess of my watermelon eating. Cheveux happily provided with their free gift! This hair gift is a mesh fatpack of colors and is cute as can be. I cam-shopped from the same spot I’ve been cam shopping from the last couple of times (I’m still finding lots of goodies there) and it was an easy to find booth. Remember to use this tip for selecting objects that are far away:

((Quick hint: to get maximum shopping benefit, if you are in firestorm viewer, go to preferences, firestorm tab [along the left side] then Build 2 [along the top tabs] and uncheck “limit select distance” and then click ok. This will allow you to select items from any distance as long as you can see it with your draw distance!))

Happy Hunting and Hair Fair shopping!

Nautically Inclined

Nautically Inclined

Ships Ahoy! Look out for land! I admit in real life I never learned to swim, but that never kept me off the boats. I’ve always had a love for boats and everything nautical! I love to fish, rather it be small ponds or deep sea fishing. And you’ll never catch me passing up a boat ride. So this outfit I ran across today, had me really smiling!

Ready to sail.

I’m ready for sailing weather, or even to sit dockside, in my new Sailing Day Outfit by Tam. It only cost me 1L and a little hunting time as part of the June Effects Hunt. I went to the Tam main-store and hunted down the little life preserver and the shorts and top were mine!

It comes in a variety of sizes including:

  • Standard mesh sizes XS- XL
  • TMP
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Tonic – Curvy & Fine
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Worth mentioning!

It’s over the 75L limit, but I know you’ll forgive me when you see the deal that I got on my hair! I stopped by the Hairology event which began on June 10th and visited the EMO-tion’s booth. Hair at this booth is 50% off, and I picked up my new Claudia hairstyle for just 122L per pack. It was such a good deal that I wanted to share it with you, even if it was over the usual limit, in case you are a hair fanatic like moi!
