Fab Free Designer of the Week – BonBon

Hello hello Fabulous Fab Free’rs! It’s been time for a “Designer of the Week” style post for a minute now, so for today I’m happy to share with you BonBon. First, I want to point out that the grounds surrounding the BonBon main location are just beautiful. Definitely take a little time when you’re there to look around a bit. That said, BonBon is a cute little shop which mostly sells female hairstyles. The style of BonBon is very doll-like and cute, the term kawaii definitely comes to mind although there are plenty of hairstyles that could fit any look.

Along with the feminine hairstyles, you’ll find a few makeup items, and some equally doll-like clothing and accessories in gacha machines. Inside the entrance you’ll see the “circulation desk” as I call it, where you can access all of BonBon’s social media and the store group. Right now there are quite a few BonBon group gifts available, they are conveniently lined up on a shelf above the desk. You’ll also notice some of the gifts have a heart above them. One of those gifts is the current Fabulously Free in SL group gift, which you’ll likely recall seeing this super cute style in Aline’s post “Stay Safe.” There is also a free gift that is available exclusively on the Marketplace. Aline also showed us that gift in her pose “I Sparkle I Shine.” In addition to the gifts being displayed above the desk, the most recent of the gifts along with the Fabulously Free in SL gift are also available on the wall opposite the desk. To get the Fab Free group gift you will need the Fabulously Free in SL group tag. The Fab Free group is always free to join. For the BonBon group gifts, you’ll need to join the BonBon store group which does have a one-time join fee of 99 linden. Which when you consider the number of available group gifts, is still a pretty great deal. Happy Shopping Fab Free!

Meow Meow Hi Fab Free! Haha I hope you’re enjoying the weekend. I have to say mine is going pretty well so far. Have you been by the Pose Fair yet?! I feel like I’ve been talking about it a ton, but with good reason. I am not exaggerating when I say there are so many free gifts at the Pose Fair. I also want to point out that while I may not be blogging them, there are quite a few male pose freebies and couples poses. So there’s my bit about the Pose Fair for today. I am of course showing another of the gifts from the event, this time from WetCat. Also, I picked up the current Fabulously Free in SL group gift at Sexy Princess. Lastly, as always tattoos are irresistible, and Letis Tattoo has a cute 10 linden tattoo out that I just had to share.

The Cushion – The cute little yellow cushion that Pru is so delicately perched upon is the free Pose Fair group gift by WetCat. This simple floor pillow comes equipped with 2 static female sit poses, and 2 static male sits. You’ll need to join the Pose Fair group and wear the tag before clicking the giftbox at the WetCat booth. The Pose Fair group is free to join.

The Boots – Have you seen the Fabulously Free in SL group  gift listing recently? It’s looking pretty good. The gifts do change periodically, so if you haven’t checked them out recently, you should definitely take a look. I picked up these high heeled ankle boots for free at Sexy Princess while wearing my Fab Free group tag. The Fab Free group is always free to join. These cute boots come in sizes to fit Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza feet.

The Tattoo – Finally, the dainty floral linework tattoo on Pru’s upper arm is a 10 linden group only purchase available at Letis Tattoo. You will need to join the Letis Tattoo group to purchase this inexpensive find, however the group is free to join. As much as I do like to be heavily inked, sometimes I enjoy these beautiful more subtle tattoos just as much as a full body one. This 10 linden tattoo comes in several appliers, each with a range of intensity. Also, this tattoo comes in classic system tattoo layers for non mesh avatars!

Appliers Included:

Easter may be over, but…

City in the Sky_001

Easter may be over but the hunts haven’t ended. All the eggs have rotted! And there are still prizes to be found in them! Thankfully, 20 stores have banded together to create….. dun dun dun! The Rotten Egg Hunt! Each store has set out up to 5 gifts on the Rotten Egg Hunt Sim where you can hunt gifts to your heart’s content. The gifts range in price from 1L to 10L and all are of very high quality. I went over there and checked it out myself before all the eggs disappeared and came away with some great prizes. Don’t worry though, you have until April 28th!

Hunting down some rotten eggs…

I spent some time unpacking my gifts and found two favorites I wanted to share with you. First was this Latex Lingerie by Kawaii. It was only 5L and you’ll get the top in a plain version (shown) or a frills version (not shown) and it’s a fatpack of 8 colors on a color change hud. You’ll also get it for a several of body types.

Available body sizes:

  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Freya

The perfect tattoo

To finish off my look, hunt down the Madame Noir Secret 3 tattoo. This too was a 5L hunt egg. You’ll get a hud that includes Omega and Maitreya appliers as well as options for 75% and 50% opacity.

Happy Hunting!

Dreams of Flying

Dream of Flying
Hi There Fab Free! I have something a little different to help brighten your week. The iridescent harness style lingerie is a new Lucky Letter board prize at Moon Amore. I had fun pairing it with the group gift horns from Cubic Cherry. I think the end result is both sweet and sensual. I hope you like it as much as I do!

The Lingerie – I love this unique lingerie set from Moon Amore. I think that even with the influx of harnesses and harness inspired fashion, this stands out. The set has a separate top and bottom so you could wear the pieces alone as well as together. This Lucky Letter board prize also has a color change hud that lets you choose pink, yellow, or blue (shown) for the base color of the iridescent straps. Also, the set is in a single mesh size. The Moon Amore group has a one time join fee of 30 linden and is required to win the Lucky Letter prizes.

The Horns – These cute down-turned horns are a recent group gift from Cubic Cherry. They come with a color change hud with 6 fun candy colors. The Cubic Cherry group has a one time join fee of 66 linden. There are several group gifts available at Cubic Cherry in addition to these fun interesting horns.

Here are the details, enjoy!

Pastel Princess

Pastel Princess
Hello again Fab Free’rs! Welcome back to the Fab Free blog. I’m gonna just come out and say it, I think this super girly look is so stinkin’ cute! I hope you think so too. It makes me think of pastel goth looks and a more grown up version of some of the kawaii styles I often see. In this post I’ll tell you all about the lace top Pru is wearing from Baii Maii, and the jewelry from Yokai.

Let There Be Lace

Love actually pointed this sweet sexy lace top out to me, and I’m so glad she did. This semi-sheer lace top by Baii Maii is a Marketplace Dollarbie. Baii Maii appears to be a Marketplace only store at this time. This dollarbie halter style top comes in several mesh sizes, and includes a color change hud. The color change hud allows you to pick a completely custom color for each of 3 parts. The ruffles, the main part of the top, and the ribbon edges can each be colored independently. I love the overall look of this top. Also, the ruffles and laces connect cutely in the back, leaving the back mostly open.

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

Little Stars

Each of the pieces of jewelry Pru has on is a FREE gift at Yokai. The earrings, the choker, and the face stars are all separate FREE gifts with no group required. The necklace includes a color change hud that lets you pick between a few pastel color options for the cloud, and gold or silver for the stars and chain. The prim face stars come in gold only. The earrings can change colors via touch menu, and will allow you to choose gold or silver. The earrings and necklace can also be resized manually. Each of these FREE gifts can be purchased at Yokai for zero linden.

P.S. There are also several other FREEbies at Yokai, none of which require a group!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Dilly Dally Dolly Pru

Dilly Dolls

Hello There Fab Free’rs! I’m so glad you’re here. Recently I had the pleasure of rediscovering a shop that at one point in my Second Life was a favorite. That store is Dilly Dolls. Dilly Dolls is a shop with a style that is all their own. Most would probably describe the style as gothic lolita, which is fairly accurate, however it’s a bit more colorful and playful than the average gothic lolita styles. I think the word Kawaii is appropriate.  You can find everything from shoes and dresses to accessories at Dilly Dolls.

Group Gift Room

Each of the cute accessories Pru has on in the above photo are a FREE group gift from Dilly Dolls at this time. The Dilly Dolls group has a one time join fee of 150 lindens. However, there are multiple group gifts still available. Near the entrance to the Dilly Dolls main store you’ll find a circulation desk. Look to the floor for a round teleporter, this will take you to the group only gift room. You will need to be wearing your Dilly Dolls group tag t0 use the teleporter. Once you’ve arrived at the Dilly Dolls group gift room, you’ll notice there are several group gifts available.

The Key

The first gift that caught my eye is this key shaped industrial ear piercing. I think I noticed it first because I see lots of septum piercings and face piercings, but not often an industrial piercing. This unique and detailed gift at Dilly Dolls includes a color change hud that lets you change individual parts of the key.  I had no trouble adjusting mine to fit the Pixie ears from Swallow.

Tea Cup Rings

Look no further than these cute little tea cup rings for a whimsical edition to any outfit. Also a group gift at Dilly Dolls, the rings come in two sizes and include a hud with a unique feature. The hud lets you pick the color of each tea cup from several preset colors, and it lets you choose to hid or show each of the 3 cups for added customization.

Sizes Included: Maitreya, Slink

Sunglasses Folded & Worn

The sunglasses are actually two separate gifts at Dilly Dolls, the pair you can wear, and the pair for being held/displayed. I love the idea of the folded pair as a held accessory and as a photo prop. Both gifts include a color change hud that lets you custom color/choose from presets for the studs, the frame, and the lenses.

Happy Shopping Fab Free! Don’t forget to teleport to the Group Only Group Gift Room for your gifts at Dilly Dolls!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Hello Hello Fab Free’rs! I hope each of you has been having a great week so far. Mine has been a tad hectic irl, but that’s what Second Life is for! I’m excited to be here with you to share the latest FREE group gift from the FREE-to-join group at Pacagaia Creations. Before I continue I want to specify that there are 2 groups at Pacagaia Creations. This gift is for the group that is FREE, not the VIP group which has a join fee.  I also picked up a cute little collar on the Marketplace for cheap.

Ruffled

This sweet and sexy skirt and bustier combo is the FREE group gift for the FREE-to-join group at Pacagaia Creations. The set is fully mesh and comes in several sizes. Also included is a color change hud that gives you 3 options, the black with pink ruffles shown, a pale pink version with a floral ruffle, and a deep red with a black ruffle. You can also change the skirt and top separately.

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

Tiny Heart

Feelin’ a little feline, I poked through the Marketplace in search of a cute collar/choker to wear with the outfit from Pacagaia Creations. Fortunately I found one! This cute little choker is just 20 lindens on the Marketplace from a shop called Layla’s Workshop. It has a simple heart dangle and is equipped with resize scripts.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Fabulous Free Finds for FROST

Heyya Fab Folks! I have got a ton of free fabulous-ness to show you today. I finally got over to the huge FROST event put on by Depraved Nation and I’m so glad I did because it only runs till January 3rd!

FROST1

Many of the generous designers at FROST have placed freebie gifts under the Holiday Tree at the event. I’m wearing Sn@tch’s wine sweater dress first up.( You knew I would!) beautifully made and richly colored, the dress comes with the belt and three different pairs of stockings and a bunch of appliers too. Do you like the saucy new do? It’s Damselfly’s gift: ‘Dawson’. This style comes with a HUD loaded with twenty gorgeous colors.

Next is this cute casual top from Somnia.  Perfect weekend wear with your favorite jeans, isn’t it? I got a little silly with Kawaii’s gift. That’s it on top of my head. But that’s where I’m supposed to wear it. They even call it a ‘head stack’! 😀

Frost2_001

Last but definitely not least is Essenz’s ‘Denver’ for SLink high feet. I love the cord details on these. Plus, the hardware comes in gold or silver.

The FROST event, and all these lovely gifts, only last until January 3rd so hurry over!
