MakeOver Monday part 4

Hello hello, Fab Free! It’s that time again… MakeOver Monday! And we’ve come so far! Two full avatars for exactly ZERO lindens. And I really had to grit my teeth a few times. I’m so weak when it comes to having that “perfect’ (To me anyway) look. I really fret over poor Alistar’s hair. And I’m still looking for something better for him. I swear, if I ever become a designer or builder… I will have good free stuff for the guys. But anyway…

Let’s jump in here. SO, we have bento bodies, Mesh heads, Animation Overrides, and hair. All we need now is clothes. I don’t want to dwell on the clothing part since that’s basically what we do here at the Blog everyday. But I do want to mention a few places, I’ve found very helpful.

First is R&R Swag and their “Rookie Alley” . This is a very nice selection of things for both male and female avatars under 30 days. This outfit is a bit of a mix and match from the Rookie Alley and the past group gifts.

Alistar’s second outfit is a second set of jeans from R&R Swag’s Rookie Alley and a group gift from Asteroidbox for the L’Homme group.  L’Homme is one of the hands down best groups to join if you are looking for male clothes and accessories. The group is free to join, the designers are top notch and you have three -ish months to pick the gifts up. I highly recommend it. 

Last is a current gift for one of our own FabFree Group designers – MaxMagic. They are offering this great Trekkie hoodie for both men and women. I do love geeky stuff!

Kerydwyn’s clothes are much easier to find, go figure. But I still want to show a few choices for our newbs. The first is from BoHo Soul one of our FabFree Group designers. This is the “Impish” outfit which comes with top, pants and shoes. Which is awesome because free good shoes are hard to find. 

The second outfit is from the Cozy Fest event. This event is a bonanza for free gifts from real quality designers. Plus, for new folks… it’s just about everything you can ask for. The group is free to join and each booth has a free gift! Kerydwyn is showing the ‘Maggs’ top from Apple Blossom and the ‘Natasha’ leggings from 1313 Mockingbird lane. These events are great places to “shop” for designers landmarks as well. If you like the gift or what you see in the booth… check out their main store. They may have a free group or other gifts there. Also,

The boots in the second picture are another totally free gift from Body Cult the Marketplace. Digging through the MP can be frustrating… but worth it.

 

Okay that’s it for today cause it’s late and I’m tired and cranky today. ;P  But I think we have covered some ground. Our new kids are looking like real stars on the Grid now.  Take a look at a side by side!

Wow! And remember we spent exactly… ZERO monies! 

SO… next week I will talk about housing and inventory. Or “Now I got clothes… where do I unpack ’em without putting on a free show?”

Smitten Kitten

Smitten Kitten

Hey Fab Fam, happy weekend to us! If y’all remember in my past rambling, I really do love a good Hunt. And while I try to peruse as many as I can, sometimes a great hunt just slips under my radar. And that’s certainly what’s happened to me with the Harmony Hunt.  It’s a recurring hunt happening from the 15th to the 30th of each month! And yet … I missed it. Until today that is!  I just popped over to the Harmony Hunt Headquarters, joined the free group, grabbed the free HUD and away I went.

My first stop was at RD Style for this super cute little kitten of a dress. This is the “Kawaii Cat” dress and I was able to add it to my wardrobe for just 10L and a little hunting.  RD Style actually has three colors of this dress up for the 10L hunt. I was lucky enough to find the pink one right away. But the lavender and the baby blue ones are just as cute. Just remember, after the 30th, the Hunt is over until next month.

Sizes Included

  • Beleeza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • eBody Reborn
  • Legacy + Perky
  • Maitreya

my mother told me son let it be

my mother told me son let it be

Good evening, Fab Readers.  Finding good quality men’s wear and accessories here on the Grid is often a trial and can be very frustrating. Honestly, I think if I have to see one more hoodie… Never mind, I digress. When the morass of “not affordable” or “mundane” men’s wear gets me down, I retreat to my stand by favorites. Places with quality work and generous groups. One such place is R&R Swag. They can always be counted on for excellent group gifts and other affordable options. Plus, the designers are rather charming and very friendly.

I found recently that the prizes on the Lucky Chairs in the main store have been updated and I was delighted to see that my initial had popped up as well. I didn’t hesitate to grab this full outfit ; The Blade Biker Outfit. The complete outfit includes the jacket, with and without the tee shirt, the jeans and the boots. All impeccably built and perfect for casual days or nights. The outfit is designer exclusively for the Signature Gianni but I found it looked just as smashing on my Belleza Jake. As Julianna would say, “Your mileage may vary.” Even if this look doesn’t suit you, R&R Swag has many other past group gifts available as well as other outfits loaded into the Lucky Chairs. The Group is free to join as well.

Sizes Included

  • Signature Gianni

In the houses of the old gods

In the houses of the old gods

Hilsener, FabFree!  Modern Norwegian may not be Old Norse but it sure sounds cool. And it fits right in with my Norse inspired mood today. Of course it’s 25L Tuesday too and there just happens to be two perfect additions to my Viking attire.

First, my dress. This is “Skadi” from Mansken. You get the bodice with the beautiful runic designs on it and the attached skirt which can be one of  six colors. This is going to be perfect for one of my RPs and I can’t wait to show it off!

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique

Next is my new necklace. The “Protection” necklace is from Angelicus. It comes sized for men but it’s easily resized to fit just about anyone. Angelicus has two other women specific necklaces for the sale as well.

As with all 25L Tuesday goodies, some designers leave them up for a bit and some disappear the second the clock strikes midnight tonight. So if you need to ‘go aviking’  hurry over!

Day Dream Colors

Day Dream Colors

Maybe it’s because there is nearly a foot of snow covering the ground outside my real life window, but I’ve been all about the soft pastel colors here of late. Spring is usually more pastel for me but snow must bring on a softness, I guess. Anyway when I saw this lovely sea foam green sweater from Milky Way I had to have it and I’ve been wearing it all over the Grid today.

This is the Kiyomizu Winter Hunt Sweater from Milky Way for the … you guessed it.. Kiyomizu Winter 2021-2022 Hunt. I adore Milky Way’s designs. They all have a soft sweetness to them. While you’re at the shop, check out the huge wall of Group Gift Lucky Boards. The Group is free to join and there are some really nice prizes there. The Kiyomizu Winter 2021-2022 Hunt ends soon on January 10th. But the prize objects ( An adorable Ninja Cat) are very easy to find. In fact some of them aren’t hidden at all so you won’t have any trouble collecting as many as you might want.

Sizes Included

  • One size ( It fits my Maitreya perfectly)

The PINK Season is coming

The Pink Season is coming

Hey there, Fab Free! Can you believe the week is nearly over??? Another day and it’s the weekend already! I guess it’s a good thing but dang! Anyway, time and January is apparently going to speed by and before we know it it’ll be hearts and kisses and PINK everywhere. 

I guess I have some pink on the brain cause when I tried on this latest Fabulously Free Group Gift from MOoh I had to have the pink shirt instead of any of the other colors. So, this is the “Mariah” outfit and it’s the gift I’m talking about. You can pick it up for free when you wear your free FabFree Group tag and slap that board. Mariah comes with the jacket/shirt combo and the skirt as separates which is always nice. The denim part has a HUD for two colors: blue and black while the HUD has seven solid colors and five stripy colors for the shirt. I still am enjoying my Winter but this might have me thinking about Spring.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Classic Mesh – XXS – L
  • Legacy
  • Legacy Perky
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique

Happy New Year

Happy New Year

Good evening FabFree! I hope the first day of 2022 has come and gone by with nothing but good stuff for you. Gabe and I started our 2022 much like we started 2021: with coffee first and nonsense after. ( Or during thanks to Dixie) So much happened in 2021… and 2020 , I know it’s left us with some hard feelings. But I made a promise to myself and my little family here. I will not lose hope for better things and try to be one of those better things for the people n my life.

So HAPPY NEW YEAR my FabFree Family! Gabe and I wish you all every blessing and every happiness in this year stretching out before us.
