Weird and Wonky

Weird and Wonky

Oh hey there Fab Free.  You’re looking lovely this evening.  I’m feeling….a bit weird and wonky.  I dunno, like I’ve been looking at myself in a fun house mirror or something.  The only thing to do when that happens is run with it – make the weirdness your biggest asset, and that’s what I plan to do.  Today, I found the perfect dress to make my weirdness come out front and centre.

Meet Me At the Altar

Ostara’s Altar, that is!  It’s an event filled with the witchy, spooky, gothy things I highly enjoy, as well as having a fun little 5L hunt going on too.  I found the Get Frocked egg, and inside lay this fun dress!  It just calls out to me.  Want to know what lies hidden within the other eggs?  Well you can have a little peek right HEREOstara’s Altar runs until April 3rd, so head on over!

Sizes

  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • XS – XL with an Alpha Layer

At Midnight…

I have been enjoying a few different free Olive hairdos in the last little while, and recently I slapped the Midnight Madness board while I was there, and this hella big creation was delivered to me at Midnight! I’ve done it a few times, and each time I have participated, the prize was delivered to me!  I’m pretty sure it is switched every few days, so the hair I’m wearing might not be available today, but there are a whole bunch of other options, so you can add to your hair collection!  Good Luck!

Taking time for some r.e.l.a.x.a.t.i.o.n.

Poolside_001

All this hunting for treasure has me WORN OUT! So I decided to head to a resort for some r.e.l.a.x.a.t.i.o.n. I noticed I wasn’t the only one who thinks hunts are both great and evil at the same time. Aline was mentioning it in her post where she sported some great Finders Keepers hunt gifts. For me, the worst part is all those boxes scattered all over the floor of my Second Life house as I try to unpack everything. Wowzer! At least I unpacked a couple of resort worthy items sure to make relaxing at the poolside worth hunting down my freebies!

A new shirt.

Hey don’t worry if pink’s not your style! This shirt from Get Jiggy! has you covered with an amazing color hud.

You’ll get:

  • 13 colors to choose from for the outside of the shirt
  • 13 colors to choose from for the inside of the shirt
  • 13 colors to choose from for the cuffs

and you can change those separately. The shirt only comes in standard sizes, but I had no problem fitting it to my Jake body by using the alphas. I also tried it on my Slink body and it fit that body just fine too! This Vintage Polo shirt is a free group gift with your free to join group at Get Jiggy!

New Pants too!

While you’re at Get Jiggy! be sure to hunt down the Glam or Grunge hunt gift. It will only cost you 1L, and you’ll be getting a great pair of cargo capris. Just like the shirt, these pants come with an outstanding selection of color with the color change hud.

  • 5 colors for the pants
  • 5 colors for the front pockets
  • 5 colors for the side pockets
  • 5 colors for the back pockets
  • 6 colors for the belt
  • 5 metal choices

A dirty little secret…

Petals_001

Hair! Hair!

I keep thinking of that musical. Is it Hair? Or was it Hairspray? Someone help me?! Maybe it was both! Anyway… Everyone is having so much fun with the Finders Keepers Hunt and with only a few days left (it ends the 24th) I had to get in on some more free hair! Already your Fabfree bloggers have shown you free Finders Keepers Hair in some great posts!

Serena showed you some here.
Loki showed you some here.
Love showed you some here.
Aline showed you some here.

And I got you covered in this post! Just head over to Mina and hunt down that pot of gold for your free Arwen hair in black. You’ll get a materials and no materials version in the gift box.

Speaking of fun…

I had fun hunting down sexy underthings at Glitzz. I have a dirty little secret. I LOVE lingerie. Especially free lingerie. And this set that Glitzz is giving out free for the Finders Keepers Hunt is a keeper for sure. You’re going to get a Maitreya fit bra and matching panties set in Turquoise. The bra has strategically placed roses for nip coverage and the panties have similar coverage with a strategic rose. Otherwise this set is very risky with all lace strings! It’s super sexy and perfect for a hot hot hot night with that special someone. Rawr!

Wrong Turn at Netherwood

Sunset

Melanie Daniels: On Mondays and Wednesdays I work for the Travelers Aid at the airport.
Mitch Brenner: Helping travelers?
Melanie Daniels: No, misdirecting them.
~ From The Birds

I got a little misdirected while visiting Netherwood. You see, I was checking out Love’s post about her finds at Petite Mort and from the picture I thought, hey that looks like a nice peaceful sim to visit… but Nooooooooo……. I end up in some corner that looks like it’s straight out of an Alfred Hitchcock movie! Which is sort of suitable since I’m sporting a shirt with Birds on it. I’m sure Hitchcock would approve.

Where to get the shirt:

My shirt by Trashed is a great little hunt item from the Glam or Grunge hunt and can be yours for only 1L. You’ve already seen some items shown on the blog by Stan [here] and me [here] and Kat [here]. Now you can add this one to your wardrobe as well. Ladies there was a matching tank top for you in the box also.

Available shirt sizes:

  • Classic XS – XL
  • TMP
  • Slink
  • Adam

Getting Hairy…

I picked up a couple of “hairy” gifts for this post, including a hair for my skull and a beard for my face. The hair on top of my head is a free hunt gift as part of the St. Patrick’s Day hunt. You’ll find this in a little pot of gold at Volthair. It’s actually unisex and includes the needed hairbases for various mesh heads. It’s a long over the shoulder style that goes down the back and comes in white or brown.

My beard is from i.mesh, and I couldn’t resist the contrast of my rough and tough exterior, with the rose-filled facial hair. This too is a free gift with your free to join group tag. You’ll get the beard in black with red roses, white with blue roses, and silver with yellow roses (shown).

On the hunt for… various things.

Flower Power_001

I must have taken a wrong turn in Amsterdam somewhere. I ended up in this salvage yard while I was trying to hunt down Gavin to tell him that Serena had gone out for a horseback ride in the country. I was sure it was just down that street there but sure enough I ended up here on the wrong side of town in front of a van that looks like its straight out of a Scooby Doo cartoon. Not that I mind sight seeing mind you. I’m still trying to find Gavin. I think he went shopping for Friday deals. I wonder if he got anything good?

Hunting for other things instead…

For now I’ve given up the hunt for Gavin. That guy is just on his own. I did manage to hunt down some sweet deals of my own though! I happen to love St. Patrick’s Day, mainly because it’s a good excuse to wear green. So I was checking out all the monthly hunts and ran across the Luck of the Irish Hunt and scored a really cute tank top at Ambient for just 1L! It has cute lace trim around the hem and the neckline and comes in several mesh sizes.

Shirt Sizes available:

  • Classic XXS – L
  • TMP
  • Hourglass & Physique
  • Maitreya
  • Freya, Isis, & Venus
  • eBody
  • Tonic Curvy & Fine

OOOOoooo Don’t forget!

I joined the Vision Vip Group a while back for 250L. Now this might seem steep for a group join, but every month I visit the store and pick up my 100L in-store credit (plus I get access to the lucky letter boards that change out monthly too… I just happened to snag a shirt off one of those boards while I was there, and I might show that off in another post). So I had saved up my credit for the last two months and had 200L to spend.

I picked up this cute little black mini skirt that was only 199L and it didn’t cost me a single penny since I had my in-store credit. Plus I got the cute shirt I mentioned off the lucky letter board! For that one time fee, your monthly in-store credit adds up over time, making it worth joining, plus those lucky letter boards, woooo hoo!

Boys (Don’t) Cry

Boys Dont Cry_001

I was hot on the trail taking my sweet time on the Glam or Grunge hunt and really getting into it because I’m super hyped lazy when I found the perfect gift to blog! It was fabulous! Fantastic! It was the gift from Horr Mens Wear! Then I realized that a certain Stan the man and his pupster had beat me to the punch.

Not Shedding Tears, Not Me

Now don’t get me wrong. I was totally happy for him, except the part where he looked better in it than I did forgot to wear a shirt. I think a shirt would have much improved his look. But don’t worry because boys don’t cry. It says so on my shirt. It’s just something in my eye. At least I beat you to this one Stan!

That’s right readers. You can get my shirt at Waffles as part of the Glam or Grunge hunt for just one million dollars one little linden. It’s well worth that and a few tears as you hunt for it. It even comes in a few sizes to make it worth your while.

Sizes Available:

  • Adam
  • Aesthetic
  • David
  • Gianni
  • Jake
  • Slink
  • TMP
  • Classic XS – XL

Steam Punk Nyne

Steam Punk Nyne_001

I always love it when I can bring you free or cheap roleplay styles to add to your wardrobe. So cheers to bringing you an inexpensive look today! This one you can add to your Steampunk drawer!

The look…

This look comes courtesy of Prism Designs and is part of the Steam Hunt. It only comes in Classic Mesh sizes, but it is well worth adjusting your body to fit it, or using those mesh alpha hiders to catch any stray body parts if you must! The outfit includes a mini top hat and steampunk goggles! I love every part of it! I paired it with some color change boots from Pure Poison and I was ready to go! Like all of the gifts that are part of the Steam Hunt, this gift was free and only cost me a little hunting time.

More Hair.

As I mentioned in my post [Here], I discovered Nyne with a friend and its plethora of free gift hairstyles. I’m sporting off the newest free group gift in the picture above. I love how the color change hud includes streaks options so that you can get multicolor looks! Just don your free to join Nyne group tag and pick up the group gift free!

My friend took me over to the Nyne main-store… I’d never been before… and showed me that they had a wall of gifts just waiting to be explored! The group is free to join and the gifts are free too. There is a brand new gift out that I plan to show off in another post, as well as tons of past gifts, including two boxes of gifts from the year 2015 and 2017! You don’t want to miss out! The hair I’m showing you in the picture, like most of the hairs I picked up, include a full range of color change hud, with optional streaks included! There were even pastels on the hud 😀

X’s and O’s

X's and O's

Hey again my little Fab Free Peeps!

There are so many awesome freebies out there right now, and you know the Fab Free crew is just itching to show you all the goodies that are strewn about the grid!  I’ve got some more news today about a cute free top and some free hair that I picked up on the XOXO hunt, which is perfect for days when you want to show off.  And seriously, that should be every day!

Ex’s and Oh’s…

I’ve been trying my luck on the XOXO hunt.  It’s a fairly simple concept – you tp to the location, find the box (they’re not that hard to find, I promise), and then in local chat, type “XOXO”.  If the box feels you’re being romantic enough, it will gift you something fancy for free!  If not, well you have the choice of buying the prize for 50L or to come back in 24 hours and try all over again!  You can grab the handy-dandy HUD on Marketplace to preview the prizes and help with teleporting from location to location.  I got lucky at both KoKoLoReS and Bodhi!

The top I’m wearing from Bodhi is a very hot, off the shoulders number which makes me want to make horrible puns about giving people the cold shoulder.  I promise I won’t.  It’s really pretty though, isn’t it?

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • Isis

I also picked up this sleek and yet voluminous hairdo from KoKoLoReS.  It comes in several different shades, in my favourite colours: all fades where the ends of the hair are gorgeous shades of pink or blonde.  I of course went my signature dark with pink tips!  Best of all, both these prizes were completely free!

The XOXO hunt runs until February 18th, so hustle!
