Feelin’ Like a Zombie

Zombie
Hello There Fab Free’rs! I hope the weekend is treating you well thus far. I spent the week doing the spring cleaning I’ve been avoiding. I’ve been cleaning up and clearing out just about every room in my house. It was exhausting, and I felt very much like a zombie by the end of the week. It’s nice to have all that clutter out of the house though.

This sporty outfit by Fiorella is just the type of thing I like to wear around the house, especially when there are chores to be done. It’s also perfect for a jog in the park, or a trip to the gym. The outfit is currently just 10 lindens on the Marketplace. Included in the package are several sizes, and and a texture change hud that lets you pick between 4 textures for the shorts, and 6 textures for the top, each with a different cute phrase.

Shirt/Shorts Sizes Included

  • Standard Mesh Sizes (xxs, xs, s, m, l)
  • Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus)
  • Slink (Physique, Hourglass)
  • Maitreya Lara
  • TMP

Happy Birthday Slack Girl
As a bit of a reward for all the hard work I put in over the week, I indulged in a little pampering and got a manicure. These bento nails are a FREE group gift by Slack Girl in celebration of her real life birthday. You won’t want to miss out on these gorgeous stiletto nails. The gift includes mesh nails and a color change hud with a wide range of solid colors. The polish is intended to be matte, however there is a set in each size that will look glossy with higher graphics settings. These nails are intended for mesh hands only. The Slack Girl group is 100 linden to join at this time, and there are several previous group gifts still available.

Sizes Included

  • Vista Bento Hands
  • Maitreya Lara Bento Hands

Hello Sunglasses Meet MONS

Hello Sunglasses
Oh, Hello Fab Free’rs! All morning I’ve been thinking it’s Monday, thank goodness I’m wrong. It’s Tuesday and one thing I enjoy about Tuesdays in Second Life is “Hello Tuesday”. Just a brief explanation for anyone unfamiliar with Hello Tuesday, it’s a weekly sales event that happens on the Cosmopolitan sim. For the entire day participating designers will set a discounted item outside their shop. Generally the discount is 50% of the usual price. Today the Hello Tuesday item at Swallow is a must-have for me.

Hello Sunglasses

These over-sized sunglasses from Swallow are just 50 lindens for today only as part of Hello Tuesday. In the package along with the mesh glasses you’ll get a color/texture change hud that will let you pick from 2 different lens colors, and 6 colors for the frames. Aside from the fact that they are super cute, and inexpensive I was so excited about these glasses because they are exactly like my favorite pair irl right down to the unique shape of the arm. You don’t need to join a group, just head out to this Swallow location and pick these sunnies up for 50 lindens while you can!

Free Group Gift

Next up, the jeweled septum piercing Pru has in is a FREE May group gift from Mons. The gift comes in 3 metals, silver, gold, and rose gold. Each version has the same amethyst colored teardrop gem. The piercing can also be manually sized. You will need to join the Mons in world group, however it’s FREE to join at this time.

Get the Pose

Lastly, I did 3 photos in this post not only to show off a few of the color options available with the sunglasses, but because I wanted to use all 3 poses in a glasses pose pack from Stop Time. Each pose is included in the Stop Time “posing with glasses” pack I found on the Marketplace for just 40 lindens. I also used the built in hand poses for the Maitreya Lara bento hands (included in the most recent body update) to further pose Pru’s fingers. The pose pack includes each individual animation and a matching pose-ball.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Romancing Wertina

Little Red Flowers
Oh Hello! I’ve missed you Fab Free! After a much needed vacation, I’m back and happy to be here. Today I picked up the Fifty Linden Friday offer from Clawtooth and had the opportunity to pick up a few items at Wertina before they close their doors forever. Saving the closing sale for last, this whispy hairstyle from Clawtooth is a FLF must have! The hairstyle comes with an Essentials pack with a wide range of natural hair colors. It also includes a separate color change hud for the flower headband. You can get your copy of this lovely hairstyle for just 50 lindens today only, at Clawtooth.
Winter Romance
It’s always a little bittersweet when a shop leaves Second Life. I just yesterday found out that Wertina will be closing soon. Unfortunately I do not know when the actual closing date is. In the  mean time however, everything at the shop is marked down considerably. I did a bit of shopping yesterday evening and most of what I saw was priced between 10 and 35 lindens. I picked up a small handful of items, including this sweet floral nightgown. This little mesh dress is just 5 lindens and comes in standard mesh sizes. There are a few colors to pick from as well. At Wertina you’ll find women’s fashion with everything from jackets and shoes to dresses. Needless to say, you won’t want to miss out on the opportunity to grab some great bargains.

Here are the Details, Enjoy!

Contemplation

ContemplationWell Hello Fab Free! It’s been a little while since I’ve been able to be online, but I am very happy to be back and I sincerely hope everyone enjoyed any and all winter festivities they celebrated. That said, it’s time you ventured through We Love Role Play if you haven’t already.  The current round of We ❤ RP is particularly special because there is a Christmas tree with FREE gifts piled under it. You will need to join the We ❤ RP group and wear the tag to get the gifts, however the group is FREE to join.

As far as I am concerned you’re never too old to play dress up, or to have a wild imagination. There were a few of the FREE We ❤ RP gifts specifically that called out to me. I just had to wear the armor from Belle Epoque, and the headpiece from Wicca’s Wardrobe. Perhaps the fact that I’ve recently started watching “The 100” again on Netflix had some influence as well. As for the elf ears, I just like how they look, I feel like a determined warrior elf: beautiful and strong.

Wicca’s Wardrobe Gift at We ❤ RP

This sturdy yet elegant looking headpiece is the FREE gift from Wicca’s Wardrobe at We ❤ RP. The textures of the Amara Headpiece are beautiful, and the face chains fit easily over my mesh head without any adjusting. You can size this mesh accessory with the built in resize scripts. Look for this FREE gift under the Christmas Tree at We ❤ RP.

Belle Epoque Gift at We ❤ RP

The Callie Armor is fully mesh and meant to be born with the Maitreya Lara body. Also, it comes in a gold version as well as the silver version shown.

Bitter Berries

Bitter BerriesWell Hello There Fab Free’rs! I had so much fun “elfing things up” (as Carson put it) in my last post that I thought I’d give it a second go. I really do love these LODE gachas, and the Orquidea cart at The Wash’s Cart Sale gave me the perfect excuse to wear more of the gacha goodness from LODE. Needless to say I’m excited to share these inexpensive finds with you. Also, if by chance I am not back here before the holidays, I hope each of you has a wonderful winter holiday, no matter what you celebrate! ❤

LODE Bitter Berries 

So once again, I spent more money than I should have playing the gacha machines at LODE. Thankfully they are just 60 lindens per play. The gorgeous headpiece Pru is wearing and the pretty matching ring are both from the Bitter Berries gacha machine at the LODE flagship store. Along with these beautiful accessories, you’ll find additional equally gorgeous pieces to be won. One thing I can honestly say is that I’m never disappointed in the quality and detail in the items I’ve bought at LODE, these are more than worth the 60 lindens.

Bitter Berries 1Orquidea at The Cart Sale 

As I am certain you’ve noticed, the winter round of The Cart Sale at The Wash has begun and there are some Fabulous finds to be had. I took a stroll through yesterday and picked up several things personally. This beautiful burgundy colored dress is one of several 10 linden items at the Orquidea cart. There is a green version available as well, and I don’t mind telling you I had a hard time deciding which color to share with you. The dress comes in standard mesh sizes and also includes a matching beret (not shown).  Along with this pretty wool dress, there are several jewelry and accessory type items at the Orquidea cart.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Be My Frankenstein

Be My Frankenstein Hello Fab Free’rs! It’s good to be back from a long weekend away. I’m super excited to finally be able to share this look with you! Can you believe we’ve got just 6 days until Halloween? Do you have your costume ready? I still have no idea how I’ll dress up. The main reason I can’t decide on something is because there are so many cool costume ideas. I am however leaning toward a pin-up style Bride of Frankenstein thanks to these FREE and inexpensive items from Clawtooth, Stix, and Vero Modero.

Starting with this iconic hairstyle from Clawtooth, it doesn’t get much more “Bride of Frankenstein” than this! The “Bride of Frankie” hair is on sale at Clawtooth for just 25 lindens. It’s also a fatpack, so you can change it up a little if you want to put your own twist on the look and go with a hair color other than black. I also found I was able to match a Catwa hairbase (part of the Catwa head features) really well to this frighteningly fun hairstyle by Clawtooth. Don’t miss out on this limited time offer!

Stix put out a group gift this month as well. This FREE gift is a pretty set of fall/Halloween lip appliers. Included in the set are 3 lip colors, the green and black version shown, a solid smi-gloss looking black, and a pretty baby pink shade. All three shades come in an applier hud for Catwa, Lelutka, Genesis, TMP, and Omega compatible heads, as well as classic system layers. You’ll find this lovely gift for FREE on the group gift wall at Stix. It’s to the right as you enter the shop. The “PixyStix” group is FREE to join. You’ll also find a few lucky letter boards, and several previous gifts still available, just don’t forget to wear your group tag!

The finishing touch is another FREE group gift, this one from Vero Modero. I have seen various versions of this blood drippy necklace a lot of places in real life and I was so excited to see it as a group gift in second life. This fun choker is unisex, the resize scripts allow it to be sized to fit any avatar. The Vero Modero group is FREE to join, making this fun gift FREE as well. All you need is group space.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Tis Kustom

Tis Kustom Hello Fab Free’rs, I hope you’ve all been having a wonderful week! I’m doing pretty well myself, especially after indulging in a little retail therapy at the current round of Kustom 9. This round of Kustom 9 is an anniversary round. Can you believe Kustom 9 has turned 3? In it’s relatively short time in Second Life, Kustom 9 has become one of the events I personally enjoy the most. I like the fact that it has remained a smaller event while still bringing in quality designers, at least in my opinion. In celebration of this anniversary, most if not all the participating vendors have put out a 9 linden gift. I picked up several, and the ones shown here are just a handful that I thought went well together.

This cute shoulder-length hairstyle is the K9 gift from MINA. I am always a sucker for heavy blunt bangs! I also like the swept back look of the style. I think it appears as though it could be tied back, but it floats over the shoulders and ends in a sort of feathery natural looking edge. The hair includes a color change hud of pretty “light brown” variations, and a version with and one without materials enabled.

Next, Essences also placed out a pretty variation on their Sophia skin as their K9 gift. This lovely face with the lilac lips is a Catwa head applier only. The gift applier is in the Essences medium01 tone with dark brows, and costs just 9 lindens like all the gifts at Kustom 9. I think the subtle makeup on this Catwa head applier by Essences is great for everyday wear. I also believe would look just as nice with casual clothing as it would with formal attire.

Fab Free’s own Kathryn commented on the photo for this post in Flickr that these eyes were “striking”. I completely agree with her, she always has such nice things to say! The eyes are part of the K9 gift from S0NG. S0NG’s 9 linden gift includes this hazy blue pair of eyes, and an equally strange and beautiful greenish pair. Named the “Bomi” eyes, each pair comes in a  mesh set, as well as a classic system layer.

Finally, this glittery iridescent choker with the little heart is from Pumpkin and I’m crushing on it big time! lol The mesh collar/choker has such a fun vibe, and it made me think of all the fun plastic jewelry I would have worn in my teens. Needless to say there was an instant feeling of slight nostalgia which is always a good thing in my book. The glittery heart choker has resize scripts built in for easy fitting, and is seriously cute on, especially for just 9 lindens.

Here are the details, I hope you like this small sample of the Anniversary gifts at Kustom 9.

Electric Love

Electric Love Hello again Fab Free’rs, I’m happy to be here, thanks for coming by and checking out the blog today! I’ve got some exciting things to share with you. As I’m sure you’ve noticed by now, we have started involving Second Life’s wonderful designers again and part of that involvement has meant some generous Fab Free exclusive group gifts. One such gift is this two piece skirt and sweater outfit from Pretty Kitty Design. Though the outfit is cute enough on its own, I added the most recent gift from Nar Mattaru. I’m a sucker for cute Halloween stuff, and this fun Halloween themed face tattoo was just too cute to resist.

Starting with the outfit from Pretty Kitty Design, there’s so much to tell you about I’m almost not sure where to begin! The top and skirt come in standard mesh sizes, as well as fitted sizes for specific mesh bodies. Each piece can be worn separately or together for the complete look. Now here’s where it gets even more interesting. The outfit includes a unique color change system called ARCTIC Tech that is exclusive to Pretty Kitty Design. What is ARCTIC you ask? It’s a hud driven color change system. This system has the ability to continually cycle through a spectrum of colors at random or allow you to choose a specific color that will not shift until you change it. If you’re having trouble visualizing what I’ve described, I understand! You can see a working demo at the Pretty Kitty Design main store. It really is cool to watch as the colors in the clothing shift. The ARCTIC Tech color change system changes the “colored” parts of the outfit only, the black materials will remain black. This FREE Fab Free group gift from Pretty Kitty Design is available to all Fab Free group members, just wear your tag. If you’re not a member yet, don’t worry the Fab Free group is always FREE to join.

Next up, as I mentioned above, I found the group gift from Nar Mattaru too cute to resist! This gift is an applier for Catwa heads only. In the applier you’ll find several small under-eye tattoo options that include images such as this cute little bat under Pru’s eye. There are 8 total goth/Halloween themed images in the applier. To change the color of your tattoo, which is white when applied, you’ll need to use the main hud included with your Catwa head. Within the Catwa hud, you have the option of manually adjusting the cheek makeup color, this will let you change the color of your tattoo to anything you choose. The Nar Mattaru group has a one time join fee of 149 lindens. You’ll find this cute Halloween themed gift available along with a previous gift behind the counter at the Nar Mattaru main store.

I hope you enjoy these fun gifts! Here are the details.

Fall Feelings

Fall Feeling Hello there Fab Free’rs! Can you believe it’s almost October!? I’m so ready for all things fall I can barely contain my excitement. Needless to say when I saw this incredibly girly coat from Vintage Touch, I had to share it with you. The coat is the current group gift at Vintage Touch and it comes in standard mesh sizes and one fitmesh. I love the style and the pattern of this coat/dress. The rose pattern reminds me of vintage English Tea Rose patterns that always catch my eye. The gift also comes with some stockings in a classic system layer, and an Omega applier that I did not show. I chose to throw on a pair of jeans and boots to wear the gift as a coat rather than a dress. To add this pretty coat to your own wardrobe, you’ll need to join the Vintage Touch in-world group. The Vintage Touch group is 1 linden to join.
Fall Feeling Close To go along with my fancy new coat, I picked up this pretty pink crystal necklace from Imbue. There are several group gifts available at Imbue, this simple yet pretty necklace is the most recent. Like tea roses, I’m kind of a sucker for crystals. The necklace comes in a rigged and unrigged mesh version, and you have the option of either a gold or silver pendant. Both are strung on a thin black cord. To get this gift at Imbue, simply join their updates group in world. There is a one time fee of 50 lindens, however the gifts currently available are worth the fee.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Ultra Violet

Untitled

Greetings Fab Readers!  For a very limited time, until August 25th to be precise…  You can join the N-Uno inworld group for just 30L.  After you have joined, you gain access to their generous group gifts, lucky boards and midnight mania board prizes.

This very sexy belted Marina Dress in Violet is one of the new N-Uno group gifts (it also comes with a sweater that ties over the shoulders – not shown today because I wanted to show off the dress detailing and it covered up much of it.).  The Marina Dress comes in XXS-M mesh sizes with co-ordinating alpha layer and also Slink and Maitreya specific mesh body sizes.

Note:  I am not sure what the normal fee is, but I do recall it being much more than 30L previously and I am sure it will shoot up after the 25th right back to where it was, so make sure you join ASAP if you’d like to partake in any of their group offers :).
