Skin Me

LAQ Valentine
Good morning FabFree Readers! Just a quick little shot from me today to share news about a beautiful new group gift from LAQ!

Give Me Some Skin!

Back in December, I posted that I had picked up the LAQ Neve Bento Motion Capture Head while it was on promo and I do on occasion wear it inworld and am glad I made the purchase because after some shape tweaking I was able to make her “feel like me”.  Yesterday for Valentine’s Day, LAQ announced that they had placed out a new free group gift for it’s inworld VIPS (FREE TO JOIN!), and that gift is the Valentine Skin head appliers, specifically for LAQ Bento Motion Capture Heads.

LAQ Valentine Skin Details:

This skin is lightly freckled with rosy cheeks and glossed lips making it a fantastic, wear every day base skin that would even be suitable for makeup layering!  The HUD included allows for several different skin tones as well as a browless option so that you can add your own.  Matching body appliers are not included with this gift, however they are currently on sale at very low prices (between 15-25L for ALL the skin tones) for several different body styles.

This gift is a limited time offer, available in store until February 18th.

ps.  I don’t have Scarlet, but I bet this skin looks great on her too!

Dinner Date

Dinner Out_001

I have a dinner date, and needed something spectacular to impress my friend. I know he won’t leave me waiting long, after all, he helped me hunt down both my necklace and my dress…

Don’t miss out…

… the Women Only Hunt ends December 31st, so you’ll need to hurry to get the last of the beautiful free prizes if you haven’t made all the stops yet. In preparation for my date, I stopped by Secrets and picked up the free Bey Necklace. It comes in two separate pieces and with a color change hud with 9 color choices for the metal. You can even change each part of the necklace separately. Color choices included some unique metal choices such as turquoise, pink, and violet, as well as the traditional black, silver, and gold.

As good as gold…

… is this Selene Black Lace Dress by Glitter. It’s the free group gift dress celebrating 6,000 group members. The Glitter group is free to join so you can pick up this dress for free too. It’s got a sheer bodice and a slightly sheer skirt. So if you’re modest, you might want to wear a pair of panties underneath.

Sizes included for the dress:

  • Classic XS – XL
  • TMP
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Hourglass
  • Belleza

Christmas Snow Angel

Christmas Snow AngelA Change Of Heads

Normally I wear Catwa’s Candy or Catya mesh heads, however recently I was alerted to a sale at LAQ that had me wanting to try something new.  The newly released LAQ Bento Motion Capture Neve Head is just 500L until December 24th (will be $5000L after that!) and it comes with the beautiful face applier shown in several different skin tones and a shape – which you can edit to your liking.  Neve is a beautiful head that comes with all of the bells and whistles, and at a deal like that – I couldn’t pass it up!  I’m glad I gave it a try, it’s nice to change my head once in a while! (Can’t say that in RL, can you!?)

Group Gift At LAQ

While at LAQ, I found that they have a new free group gift too!  The LAQ group is free to join and on the back wall you’ll find the Snowflake on Tongue for LAQ Bento Heads and the animation that goes with it.

My Holiday Hair

DOE is participating in The Holiday Hunt and their prize is fantastic for the holiday season!  Once you locate the hidden red and white gift bag at DOE, you’ll have the Ruby Holiday Hunt Exclusive in a full fatpack of colours (texture change hat included!) for FREE!  Make sure you have the hint from the hunt blog…  it’s a tricky one to find without it!

A Road Trip Around the Grid

Puppy Trio

A Hunting We Will Go

Hello there, Fabulouses!  Ripley and I set off Around the Grid, and while visiting the Facepalm Clothing Company, scooped up a lacy top and short set (called Road Trip) for just one little Linden dollar over the weekend.  I really like the way Road Trip’s wrap-style tunic has an asymmetrical hemline, which is very short in the front, but long and flowing in the back.  The airy fabric keeps you well covered in strategic places, yet allows for a subtle peek at your midsection.  The hunt gift also includes a faded pair of denim shorts that hugged the curves of my Maitreya Lara mesh body perfectly.  If you don’t feel like searching for the smaller hot air balloon hunt object, you can purchase the prize for 25L by locating the Around the Grid Hunt display, and clicking the larger hot air balloon located next to the sign.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • Maitreya Lara
  • TMP

Clearance Sale Tresses – Oh Yes!

When we needed a break from all that searching around along the hunt trail, Ripley and I visited Elikatira, and happily discovered the shop is in the midst of a Clearance Sale.  After doing a little happy dance, I discovered the ideal boho hairstyle to complete my Road Trip outfit.  Eden is a long, straight, center parted ‘do with a headband, that fit just the look I had in mind.  Included in the package is a daisy add on for the headband, which I felt echoed the creamy hue of my top perfectly.  For just 72L per pack, I couldn’t resist picking up a couple of color varieties (and a few other hairstyles as well).  I’m not sure how long this sale will last, so if you are interested in some high quality hairstyles at very budget-friendly prices, I’d recommend heading over to Elikatira as soon as possible.

Savoring the Last Few Days of Freedom

Ripley and I are enjoying our last few days of summer freedom.  All too soon, it will be back to the grindstone for me, and long days of silence, interrupted by some barking at the cats for Ripley when I head back to my job.  I hope no matter what you are doing in real life, you are able to work in some “you time.”  Until my next post, happy shopping (and hunting!).

Be you Beautiful!

picmskinBeauty is being comfortable in your own skin!

So today I am going to show you some places to find a skin to be comfortable in!

I am going to give a nice close up pic so you can see the face details plus a step back pic coz I really think a good collar bone and cleavage makes a skin pop.

The nice thing is all the skins I found have a natural lip color making it easy to add lipstick should you like too.

PicM3 LH Gervaise Pic 1 – Lara Hurley – Gervaise

Love the freckles

FREE with FREE group join. Skin includes Slink hand & feet appliers, Phat Azz, Lolas, Tango and a hairbase.

PicM1 LH RIAH

Pic 2 – Lara Hurley – Riah

Good Goth skin

FREE with FREE group join. Skin includes Slink hand & feet appliers and eyebrows.
PicM2 PumeCPic 3 – PumeC – Ursula

Fully loaded skin.

FREE with 199L join fee. Skin includes tons of appliers in a super easy to use hud for mesh bodies (for all major brands out there) and heads (TMP, Genesis, Lelutka, Slink) You also get eyebrows in red, black, blonde, brown and none. Cleavage and teeth options too.

PicM5 GenesisSummerPic 4 – Genesis Lab– Summer

Nice way to get into mesh heads.

FREE with 250L join fee. This cream skin comes with a blank head and is intended for use with a Genesis Lab mesh head (head not included nor are head appliers so you will need a Genesis Lab cream skin head). I used Emily (relaxed – cream) which I snagged playing one of the gacha machines. The skin also includes ears, eyes, teeth, hairbase and a shape.

Pic 5 – LAQ – Camille

Big selection of skin tones.

FREE with FREE group join. No applies included but are sold at the store. 7 skins tones from fair to dark are included which is what I found really nice about this gift.

Its all about skins today but I just had to share this dress with everyone too. You can grab this Kalo mesh dress with it lovely detailing FREE from Tiffany Designs on marketplace. It comes with system fits in Fitmesh plus fits for Belleza, Slink and Maitreya mesh bodies.

I do want to mention windlight setting can have a huge effect on how things look. Today I used Nam’s Optimal skin and prim which is a really nice everyday setting in my opinion and normally what I used to take my pictures.

Ok 1 last tidbit. The 7 Deadly Sk[i]ns group is FREE to join right now and is running a month long Advent calendar which means there is a new 1 day only gift available for FREE each day of Dec. Going by past gifts there should be some good presents to be had during the month.

I’m a not so secret nerd. And I love when I get to be fashionable and nerdy at the same time. Today I’d like to how you just a few of the group gifts that are being offered at EPIC. Now, don’t hate me, but there is a 350L group joiner fee, but the gifts are amazing!

I’ve always been a nerd, let me admit that – so seeing this Classic Nintendo mesh dress totally made my day! It comes in the grey (as shown) and in a light pink as well. It comes in five mesh sizes, and I’ve accessorized with the grey arm warmers also available to the group! The necklace and earrings are a subscribo gift from Miel. The beads and strings are colour-change, and I chose blush for this picture. The leggings I have on can be found as a freebie on the Marketplace here. My apologies for forgetting where I saw these mentioned!
