Back on the Art Thing

Back on the Art Thing

During my years with FabFree, lots of fun things have happened.  Other than massive piles of freebies that now pad my inventory and make it groan, I’ve met some great people, made some really close friends, and taken more pictures than I can possibly count.  Once in a while, someone comes along and really makes me smile and realise that FabFree is a special thing to be a part of.  We’re not really just a blog, we’re a community of people who love to share what we find, and sometimes even make something to give right back.

Tess

Therese Carfagno is an avid reader of FabFree, and she always takes the time to comment on our posts (which we totally love, by the way).  She currently has a really awesome art exhibition going on that features abstract photos comprised of gorgeous, swirling colours.  Therese knows that I am not always a massive fan of modern art (sorry again to all the aficionados) but she took it upon herself to make a little something that would make me smile, and that I could share with all of you as well.  You’ll see two of her masterpieces behind me, the one on the left something classical to tickle my fancy (it’s called For Aline…squee!) and the one on the right that has done a rather good job of convincing me that modern art sure can be pretty.  You can pick up both of this pretty items for just 1L each – and do take a look at all her other awesome work while you’re there.  Oh, and if you’re wondering what she’s talking about regarding a hamburger, you can read my post HERE.

And the Outfit

Recently, Promagic announced a new free group for their fans, and with it came the bombshell announcement that there are 100 gifts in their gift room.  There are some really pretty items to be had.  Today I’m showing off the Amor Dress and Bra, that comes with a rather extensive HUD to change the colours, and the Dua heels that snake up your legs and sparkle in a rather appealing way. You’ll find loads more in the Promagic gift room!

Wearable Art

Wearable Art

Some days I like to really weave a story around my outfit.  Here’s my premise today:  a new art exhibit, it’s a black tie affair, a brand new gown is donned.  The only problem is that the lovely gentleman taking me to the exhibit has found the dress to be far too distracting, and it looks like we may be late.  Oh well, a bit of champagne when we arrive will clear up any timing issues that may crop up!

Hot Holly

I was pointed in the direction of this jaw-dropping gown by Amani by FabFree community member Sitlan Breil (shoutout to Telsiope’s Couture!) – it is completely gorgeous and comes in both black and red.  You’ll find this amazing look that is sized for Maitreya (including the shoes – and a pair of earrings that I didn’t add) on Marketplace for just 25L.  That’s a pretty sweet deal that will surely have heads swiveling in your direction!  Here’s the front view, just so you can soak it alllll in:

Modern art really isn’t my thing anyway!

Cotton Candy Dreams

Cotton Candy Dreams

It’s officially the weekend!  I’m totally in need of a bit of rest and relaxation that involves me completely forgetting every single thing about RL for the foreseeable future.  Ok, a bit extreme… fine, I’ll forget about RL for just a little bit while I whip up a cotton candy dream sequence filled with sugar and spice and all things nice.  Bring on the silk and lace, I’m going all girly!

Pink Power

There’s a new group gift at Maai!  I’m super excited about this one, because it’s three pieces that can each be worn separately, giving you all sorts of possibilities.  The top, shorts and stockings are all super adorable and put me in the mood to be a frothy little powderpuff.  To get your own, join the Maai group for free, then click on the vendor!  Doesn’t get much easier than that!

Neon Generation

Neon Generation

I’m a part of the Lisa Frank generation, I’m not even going to try to hide it.  I come from the era of bright, brash and bold!  I hear that Lisa Frank is having a bit of a resurgence these days – so much so that I’ve seen some stickers with electric-coloured kittens cavorting with neon balls of yarn peppering the pencil cases of young children.  It kind of tickled my fancy that a bit of that electric madness has seeped back into the mainstream, because that just means that I can dip my toe back into the madcap all over again.

Give it the Sass

There’s a new group gift at Sass!  I always look forward to the monthly gift from this store, because it’s inevitably something fun with a smattering of colour.  This month’s is no exception – this brightly coloured bodysuit is just mad enough for you to think “yep, let’s do this!” without worrying about whether you can make it work or not.  It’s kind of like a grown up Lisa Frank – with rather distinguished feathers taking the place of neon kittens and unicorns.  To get yours (and a whole bunch of other gifts), just join the Sass group for 10L, then pay the vendor 1L which will then be returned to you.  Way too cute.

Top it Off

Things have been a bit quiet in the land of Pr!tty these days – but I was pleased when a notice popped up in their group that was a little thank you for sticking around type of thing.  Attached to the notice was this really lovely flowered headband, and the promise of more free gifts coming soon.  The group is free to join, and the owner never forgets her group members, so an excellent group to stay in – you never know when a surprise may pop up!  You can join the group by copying and pasting this key in local chat: secondlife:///app/group/b23b775b-c35b-7464-cdd7-026987d42963/about

I’m never giving up on neon!

Private Party

Private Party

In the age of social distancing, I couldn’t agree more with the sentiment that this shirt is pushing!  Though honestly, I have never been more thankful for the existence of Second Life since March 2020, where I can hang out with friends, go to parties, and have adventures all from the safety of my own home.  But, still!  Sometimes one just needs to have a private party!

Another One!

You may have noticed that events with gifts are popping up all over the place at this time of year, and I am the very last person to complain about the generosity and inventiveness of designers!  Today we’re celebrating The 4 Seasons Event’s 1st anniversary, and in true SL style, there’s a free gift at every booth.  Just join the free 4 Seasons group, and click on the little boxes.  Here’s what I’m showing off:

  • FREE top by The Bold Llama sized for Freya, Isis, Venus, Ebody, Maitreya, Ocacin, Hourglass, Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, Tonic Fine, and XS-XL with an alpha layer
  • FREE glasses by Oops (so cute! so superfluous!)

There’s lots more to discover, and you’ve got until May 22nd to make it happen!

Happy Birthday 4 Seasons!

500L in Credit from Blueberry!

Oh hey, it’s me again!  I’ve got awesome news from Blueberry!  Let’s get down to the details!

Happy Birthday!

We’re at 9 years of Blueberry goodness, and to celebrate, there’s lots going on!  For the next 5 days the whole store is 50% off!  Yessss!  Oh but wait, that’s not the super exciting part – you’ll find that if you join the Blueberry group for 20L, you’ll find a gift card for 500L of store credit in group notices!  Woohoo!  I picked up all sorts with my gift, including the pants and top I’ve got on that only set me back 125L on that credit each.  You’ll want to try your best to get in in the next 5 days to be able to get the 50% off.  If you can’t get in to the main location, you can also cam shop from HERE.  Oh, and be careful, you have two weeks to use the store credit from the moment the card is activated, so be sure you’re honed in on exactly what your heart desires.

Groundbreaking

Groundbreaking

Florals? For Spring?  Groundbreaking!  But I suppose it might be a little groundbreaking when the outfit is as striking as a pair of floral pants that have boots attached!

Redeux it Again!

I told you the other day about the free gifts you’ll find at Redeux, but there are so many I had to show you another one that I picked up while I was there.  Join the free group, and then head to the AtaMe stall for this cool outfit.  It comes with a bunch of different texture options in the HUD, so you’re sure to find something that suits your fancy.  As mentioned, Redeux is running until April 21st!

  • Freya
  • Hourglass

See, it IS groundbreaking!

Inner Strength

Inner Strength

Check these little noodle arms out y’all!  My personal inner strength doesn’t come from the size of my muscles, but instead the depth of my ability to pull through when things get rough.  You know, it doesn’t hurt to have an awesome outfit though, does it?

Hark!  A Vagrant!

There’s a brand new group gift over at Vagrant!  This cute top comes with a bunch of different customizing options in the HUD.  Lots of cute looks to choose from, that range from pop art to flamingos!  You’re sure to find something you like.  I also grabbed this embellished wristband while I was there and I thought it kinda made my fake tough girl persona shine through.  The Vagrant group is free to join, and you’ll find a bunch of free goodies at the landing point!

Buyer’s Remorse Need Not Apply

Buyer's Remorse Need Not Apply

Shopping never fails to get me into a better mood than I was.  I’m sure buyer’s remorse is a thing that plagues the masses after spending a bit of dough, but in the immortal words of Cher and Dionne from Clueless:

“Dude, what’s the matter? Are you suffering from buyer’s remorse or something?”
“Oh God no, nothing like that!”

And when the shopping’s free – no remorse required!

Beautiful, Dirty, Rich

There’s a new group gift at BDR!  That’s Beautiful, Dirty, Rich if you’re feeling proper.  I luuuurve when they come out with new free stuff, because it’s always awesome.  This top and shorts come with a huge pile of different colour and texture options in the HUD so that you can go from dark and moody (like me) to flowery and spring-like!  Join the BDR group for free, and this is alllll yours!
