Merrily up the garden path

Good Evening, FabFree – ers!

In the garden

I am so excited for this weekend! There are so many hunts, fairs, gacha events and… an Affair!  Before you think scandalous, I’m talking about the “Truth or Dare Affair” from Evil Bunny Productions. Tons of great designers have come together to offer exciting items themed either love or lust… truth or dare. In addition to the sales, there are a ton of gachas in several areas scattered around the event. I found this sweet little sun dress in the ‘Le Jardin’ gacha machine from Mutiny in Heaven. At only 39L per play you can afford to collect all of the soft colors and patterns. The ‘Clio’ dress comes in the standard Mesh sizes XXS-L and has it’s own alpha layer.

The Truth or Dare Affair runs until February 27th so hurry over! And look! Here’s your taxi now.

I, I Will Be King

whc brocade tiger jeans 2_001

I, I will be king
And you, you will be queen
Though nothing, will drive them away
We can beat them, just for one day
We can be heroes, just for one day
– David Bowie

Hello everyone and welcome to my extended Menstuff Hunt coverage! Menstuff is a lL hunt, but many of the stores on it have waived the fee, so it is an especially economical hunt to do. The object to look for is shaped like a blue T-Shirt. Today we will look at a few items from the hunt, and then I want to share something that is very special to me personally.

I love Brocade Tiger! They make clothes that are always unique and eye-catching. In other words, they are perfect for people like me who crave a little attention now and then. For the Menstuff Hunt, Brocade Tiger is offering the Tiger Blue Jeans w/Open Belt for free. Dark blue, they are emblazoned with a tiger theme executed to blend in rather than roar out its presence. The effect is a wonderfully subtle yet very artistic pair of jeans. They come in five sizes for a good fit and are available free for all you hot predators out there.

My hair in the above picture is a fantastic Menstuff Hunt prize from Damselfly. The Hitch Non-Rigged Mesh Hair comes with an easy to use hud to select among twenty different color variations. For only 1L, such a stylish hair with a color change hud included is definitely a bargain. Included in the box is a hairbase in ten colors and a TMP applier. That makes this Damselfly Menstuff prize an extremely good pick-up, an attractive and versatile hair that could easily become one of your favorites.

Native Urban offers this sharp looking pair of sunglasses for free on the Menstuff Hunt! I was tempted to save it for the upcoming free accessories day post, but I love the way they look in this picture. The Gold Aviator Glasses look highly realistic, and are handsome enough to be the “go to” sunglasses in your wardrobe. For Native Urban to offer them up as a free gift, is very generous indeed!

Finally, the Timeless Design‘s Celtic Necklace is a decidedly masculine necklace which can also be yours for free on the Menstuff Hunt. Consisting of a braided cord with four silver beads and a Celtic style silver cross, it is a ruggedly handsome item that will be a solid addition to your Second Life jewelry collection.

David Bowie passed away recently. Having witnessed Bowie evolve through the countless phases and reinventions of himself over the years, it was a little shocking that he actually appears to have been mortal. Then again, many of us have our doubts that he really was. Feeling the loss of him, though, was nothing for me compared to the loss my friend Effie felt at Bowie’s passing. She is a huge David Bowie fan and his death affected her deeply. Because of that, I became inspired by two items currently available at Brocade Tiger: the Flamingo Tux and the Goblin King Outfit in Blue.

Donning a light skin, I made an appropriate shape and went back to Brocade Tiger to see if that incredible Flamingo Tux might still be out from the Femboy Hunt. You might recall, I previously posted about it here. To my knowledge, David Bowie never actually wore anything like it but I can easily imagine him wearing something amazing like this in a video. I am happy to report this garment is still available at Brocade Tiger and only costs 2L! To finish the outfit, I chose Avanti‘s free promo Ziggy Face Tattoo which Pru previously showed off here. It works just as well for men, and for Bowie fans it is a must have item!

The Goblin King in Blue is inspired by Jareth, the Goblin King in the movie “Labyrinth” as played by David Bowie. Offered in dark blue by Brocade Tiger, this free costume totally unleashed my movie nerd side and let it go on a prowl spreading a little Goblin magic across the grid. For lovers of the 80’s, film enthusiasts and David Bowie fans it’s a great pick up!

In closing, Valentine’s Day is fast approaching and perhaps it isn’t in the cards to buy something for someone you care about. Money can be hard to come by for some of us. Maybe it is worth considering other options. From making a graphic in a paint program and uploading it into SL for 10L as a Valentine to giving your avy a look that makes them think of someone they admire, they will cherish your thoughtfulness. Of course, spending time with them can be the best gift of all. However you decide to mark the day, enjoy it! See you on the grid!—–WHC Riler

Roses are Red

Roses are red

Nothing is frilly
Gothic is back!

Roses are Red

I admit… all the hearts and frills were making me a little itchy. So when I saw that Pixel Box Designs was giving out two amazing gifts for FREE I had to snatch them up and put together a quick Gothic look for Valentine’s day. Both of these offers are TIME SENSITIVE. You will only have 3 days to grab them up. So do not wait!

If you like my Roses and Key Necklace in red (the box also contains a blue rose version), you can pick this gift up FREE at the Pixel Box main-store location. It is FREE to everyone, no group required. Just buy it for 0L. But it may only be out for today and another day or so, so hurry!

If you like my eye patch (eye certainly do! *wink wink*) then you can easily nab it off the marketplace as it is there only as a special FREE to everyone gift. Again, this is a limited time offer so do not wait! It also comes with a lovely rose ring to match (not shown).

A Little Classic Classy

Hello FabFree-ers! Are you getting ready for the ‘big’ weekend?

colorMe_001

If you’re the ‘goin’ out’ type for Valentine’s Day you can’t go wrong with a classic Little Black Dress. And right now, you can get your ‘LBD’ for free! This is the flirty ‘Amore’ dress from Tentations at the Color Me Project and it’s the free gift to celebrate Color Me Project’s anniversary.  The dress comes in the standard Mesh sizes XXS-L and has it’s own alpha layer.  I love the heart shape cut out on the chest and the lace detail all the hem. Just the thing for a sassy girl on a night out.

If you have your perfect Little Black Dress… you need the perfect heels to compliment it. Illi has set out these great black heels at the Color Me Project as their free gift for us.  The ‘Black Pumps’ are for SLink High Feet, The Mesh Project, Belleza and Maitreya mesh feet.

Completing my classy classic look today is my little black clutch purse from FLRN Designs. You can pick up this cute little clutch as a free Group Gift from FLRN Designs when you join the free Group. Not only will you get the black one, you also get a red one and a turquoise one!  In the box, you’ll get two of each color: one with a hold animation and one without. There are several other past group gifts available to pick up when you join. But more about that later. ;)

The Color Me Project runs until February 19th so hurry over!

Love struck

The Color me Project is having an anniversary and most booths have a giftie, none over 1L!

No group to join to get these gifts.

The hot pink little Cupid girl mesh mini dress with wings and bow included is from the FurtaCor stall. I just love a good pair of wings. Wear the whole outfit for Valentine’s Day and strip off the accessories and you have a darn cute mini dress to use anytime.  Even pair it with leggings for a new look. My earrings that totally match this dress are a 1L gift from the IT! stall. They include a sweet color hud and are totally worth 1L. These will make a nice goto pair of earrings. I realized I was a cupid girl without a halo. Ok so off to Markeplace and Kubic Flux to correct that. I found a FREE quirky halo, its not just a halo. If you type commands into the chat it will change the color to express your mood. So have some fun with it! I am feeling “loved”.

The Color me Project runs til the 25th.

I wanted to mention the Isle of View Sim where I am today which has alot of Valentine’s Day stuff going on like hugging booths and lots more (read about it here).  Plus they are doing Spread the love -Gift 50L Give 50L. Purchase the special gifts and LL will match the purchases and donate the funds to The Michael J Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research. A great way to support this cause and give gifts.

You can be a Cupid girl just like me:

Cupid is Here!

The weekend is almost here, and everyone will be celebrating! You only have a few days left to set up your space and get your outfit ready. But never fear… cupid is here to help… with the Stupid Cupid Hunt! As well as a few other goodies here and there!

Every Love Story is Beautiful 2

If you are not a subscriber at Sway’s, now is the time! Currently, new (or current) subscribers can get these fabulous wooden art boards (modifiable) as FREE Valentine’s gifts. I think they are good year round for any decor!

I stopped by OMG! Inc. and picked up this color change corset in all the standard mesh sizes with 8 color choices for just 1L as part of the Stupid Cupid Hunt. You are looking for a little arrow.

Every Love Story is Beautiful

I also found this sweet unisex ILY necklace by Mesh Glam Jewelry for 1L as part of the Stupid Cupid Hunt. Stop by the main-store and look for the arrow again, and it’s yours to take home. It’s resizable for male or female avatars.

Since I had some great jewelry, I wanted to add a bit of flair to my make up. I usually go with neutral make up, but decided to go a bit more wild for the upcoming holiday and alaskametro is offering this great little tester of their Extreme Wing in Flame for FREE on the Marketplace. If you want the full pack you can get that for only 75L. So either way it’s a great deal on some fantastic eye-shadow! The make up comes in standard system layers as well as appliers for TMP, EVEolution, Lelutka, Omega, and Slink.

I can be Kawaii…I think.

Hello FabFreebers! While I’m not 100% sure I know enough about what the word Kawaii means (I do know it means cute in Japanese, but of course there’s more to it than that), I find myself feeling that way today with my outfit. Heck, I’m not even sure how to pronounce it. Is it pronounced Ka-Why, or Ka-Whyee, like Hawaii? I do know that any time I hear the word, I see fun fashions, with pretty colours and there is usually a bow and or hearts involved somewhere. I think I have it nailed today!

kawaii1

It all started with my dress actually. I was checking out Sugar Button Boutique the other night, and while looking at their free group gifts to make sure I haven’t missed out on anything, I noticed that I had not picked up this cute Baby Doll Bow dress that was a special group gift edition. It is mesh, in all the standard sizes, and I just adore the big pink bow at the waist. It is so pretty and feminine. All you need to do to get this baby, is join the Sugar Button Boutique group, for free, and toss on the tag.

kawaii3

Naturally, I needed shoes. I know, I know, I always need shoes. LOL. I actually heard about this sweet iridescent gold pair from Alaskametro on their Facebook feed. There is a new Marketplace hunt going on, the Sofa Surfer’s hunt, until Feb 29th, and the Brilla heels are Alaskametro’s contribution. All you have to do, is go to their Marketplace store, HERE, and then start searching for the item ad that has the orange ‘buy now’ on it. While hunt prizes can be set at up to L$10, these classic pumps are L$0 for everyone. There are versions for SLink high, which I am wearing, TMP Ouch, Bellezza and Maitreya feet. While they are not hard to find, I won’t include the direct web page link…it is a hunt after all :P .

kawaii2

The last free addition to my Kawaii look, is the too-cute for words hair I have on. This fun, pig-tailed and long, Kizzy hair is the latest gift from Truth. If you are already in their subscribo, check your items folder, as you should already have it. If you are not subscribed, or maybe SL ate yours, no fear, just head on down to the Truth store, and you can buy the Kizzy hair for free. It is a full colour huds fatpack, and while you all know I usually go for the dark hair look, I could not resist going with pastels this time around. No matter your colour preference, you are covered.

So what do you think? With a few other cutesy additions to my outfit, do I have a Kawaii look happening? Should I have added anything else? You know, no matter what, I love it, and you really can’t beat the price for each item. So, until next time, TTFN *waves*

Love Prismatically

Love Prism 1

I’m hot on the trail of hunt deals, and I broke into some prismatically detailed outfits at Prism Designs! Prism Designs is participating in two great hunts with two amazing gifts, and you will want to nab them both up!

For just 1L you can love this Love Hunt gift outfit called Chenae Leather Jacket and Dress. The dress and jacket are two different pieces and can be worn separately or together for a stunning and unique look either way! Each piece comes in all the standard mesh sizes and the dress has a great plunging cut out back with a fabulous geometric print that really catches the eye.

Love Prism

I wasn’t done hunting down the goods though, and picked up this great outfit called Odelia while still at Prism for FREE. It is part of the Loving Kind Hunt and includes both the mesh pants and the mesh sweater, again in all the standard mesh sizes with great geometric prints to really set them apart from your standard fare. Well worth hunting down the little red heart and popping it into your wardrobe!
