Let the Party Begin!

Coming soon to fab free!

Hey gang!

So as you all know, SL is celebrating its 18th (!!!) Birthday today!  It is almost not a teenager any more!  Our little SL is growing up! (collective “awwwwww!”)

Ok I am just being silly, I traveled the entire 16 sims and not only are my feet killing me (I should *not* have worn those heels!), my head is still spinning on what to show you first!  It’s been difficult to decide, but I wanted to gather up a little collection of items that would pull together nicely and the above is what I came up with!  Of course I have a weakness for the Holo stuff, so that helped me decide!

Because it is a lot, I will keep it simple and straightforward and list it for you here (yes they are all free gifts, with no group needed!):

Free top & skirt (it is two pieces you can wear separate) is by Ersch, it fits:

  • Freya Perky
  • K-Krups
  • Kupra
  • Maitreya & Petite
  • Legacy

It comes in both yellow and purple versions.  I am wearing purple.

Free shoes and legwarmers are from Pink Cream Pie, they fit:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

They come with a HUD giving you a multitude of color choices and combinations.

The free purse is from Sheba, it fits everyone!  Yay!

The free hair is from Love, this also should fit everyone!

And last but certainly not least, the free halo/crown is from Lassitude & Ennui, and this fits anyone who feels the need to wear a magical, starry crown!

The links below should land you at the booth for each designer I’ve mentioned.  The event runs from June 17 to July 6.  Have fun!!!

What’s in a cemetery?

Graveyard Presence_001

“What could you possibly hope to find in a cemetery?” The women said. “The dead tell no secrets and the living seldom come to visit them.”
― Felix Alexander, The Last Valentine

Many of my characters have roleplayed in cemeteries for various reasons. There is mystery and intrigue there. There is always a story to be had in a cemetery! Or someone’s story at least. When I put this roleplay outfit together for you, I immediately though… cemetery! And went to take a picture. But enough of the roleplay memories and onto the gifts!

Stop by for a treat!

Bluemoon Enterprise has out a great free roleplay outfit for February. Be sure to pick it up before the month is out. You’ll need the free to join Bluemoon group tag to pick it up. This Celtic Breeze outfit includes the pants, a skirt, the bracers, the top and the hood. The hood has a feature that allows you to wear it either up or down (I choose to wear the hood down) and the outfit comes in a single fitmesh size that I had no trouble making fit my Maitreya body.

Bluemoon Enterprise is housed inside of The White Armory. When you arrive at the entrance, go inside and then head to the Bluemoon store inside the large main-store building of The White Armory. You’ll find the Celtic Breeze gift inside of the smaller Bluemoon Building.

Another YM Gift

I showed you a group gift from the YM Shop in my post [Here] but there were so many on the wall that I picked up more than one. Among the free gifts I picked up with my free group join were the Beka boots. I discovered that these boots, although certainly suitable for modern wear, had a definite roleplay feel, and paired with my roleplay outfit from Bluemoon just perfectly.

  • These boots include a color change hud to change 4 different parts of the boots with 46 color options for each as well as 4 metal options for the rivets.
  • Sizes include: Slink Physique, Slink Hourglass, Mesh XXS – L

I hope you enjoy these gifts and happy roleplaying!

Love Me, November…

Love Me, November...

I love November. It’s not any of the holidays associated with it. It’s the month itself. To me it is sort of a lull between rushes of different holidays. I like the beginning of the month before the madness of all the winter holidays set in.

I spent the morning hunting down both beautiful places to visit… and some time on the trail of the Bittersweet Hunt. The Bittersweet Hunt lasts until November 25, giving you plenty of time to get in on the prizes. It includes female, male, and unisex gifts at the various locations, depending upon where you go.

First stop…

Trashed main-store where I hunted down the skull icon for the Bittersweet hunt and paid just 1 little Linden for these amazing Denim Love Shorts! They are covered in cute pink hearts and the pockets hang down past the cut off edges and they come in all your favorite mesh body sizes: Classic (XS – XL); eBody; TMP; Tonic (Fine, Curvy); Maitreya Lara; Slink (Hourglass & Physique), Belleza (Freya, Isis, & Venus).

Free buggy rides…

Then I was off for a free buggy ride at the Land of Owls, a sim design by Cica Ghost. The sim has a sort a sort of haunted feeling (not like Halloween haunted) but like surreal haunted… and there are buggies around the sim that you can hop into and will take you around on a free tour of this amazing build. So take a teleport down and check this one out!

Zombie Hunter

Zombie Hunter

To get myself into the mood for Halloween, I decided to grab my crossbow and head over to Dystopia in search of zombies. Unfortunately, my car broke down, so it looks like I’ll be staying for a while.

Hang on, I think I see something moving behind that big pile of trash…

(For the record, there don’t appear to be any zombies at Dystopia. But if you’re looking for a well-designed, post-apocalyptic sim, you should definitely pay it a visit.)

The Outfit

What inspired my look today was the September group gift from Ghee. I’ve seen it styled a number of different ways on Flickr, but for some reason, when I put it on, I felt all Sarah Conner from The Terminator. All I had to do was add a weapon, and I was a bad@$$ zombie hunter! 😎

The VIP 09/17 GIFT from Ghee is a complete outfit that includes the cargo pants, tank top, and boots. The ribbed tank comes with a texture-change HUD with 6 different colors — black, yellow, orange, blue, pink, and the beige color I’m wearing — so you could definitely wear the tank as part of another outfit.

Sizes for the pants and top include:

  • Standard mesh XXS-L with alpha
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique

The boots are “one size fits all.” Just remember to remove your mesh feet first.

The Accessories

I shopped around quite a bit to find the perfect accessories for my look:

  • Hair – I picked up the Rossella Hair by Tableau Vivant at The Arcade for 50L. I love this “roots” version because everyone knows zombie hunters don’t have time to dye their hair, right?
  • Sunglasses – These super cool DESTRUCTINATOR glasses by TBF are available on the Marketplace for 10L. There’s no resizer, but you can edit > stretch to change the size.
  • Necklace – Another gacha, this time by Dahlia at The Imaginarium for 50L. Click for a resizer menu.
  • Bracelet – An oldie, but a goodie, by Eli Rae’s Tinkering, available for 5L on the Marketplace. There’s no resizer, and you can’t stretch either, so the size is what it is. Originally shown 4 years ago by Caresia Adored, some SL items just never go out of style. 🙂

The Weapon

No zombie hunter would be complete without a weapon, of course. I selected this scary crossbow by Blackburns, which I found on the Marketplace for 29L. It comes with a wearable version that hooks onto your back (without any straps, which I thought looked a bit odd), as well as the

It comes with a wearable version that hooks onto your back (without any straps, which I thought looked a bit odd), as well as the posed version that I’m showing here, which actually shoots. Oh, and it includes an arrow that you can wear in your head, if you like.

Sadly, I didn’t find any actual zombies to shoot at in Dystopia. But I did have fun firing at the trees on my sim, which scared the daylights out of my dogs. 😛

Happy hunting, folks!

Think Pink

Think Pink

Hello, Fab Readers! 🙂

I know I’ve mentioned many times before that I LOVE pink. So when I saw the sexy, pink group gift out from Nessmarket, I hurried over to grab it! The Lyrical top and skirt are sized for Maitreya and Slink mesh bodies. But you’ll need to hurry if you want this gift because there are only a limited number available – at the time of writing this post, there were only 110 left!

My pretty floral tattoo is a 1L Marketplace gift from La Femme. It’s called Tree of Life because there is a beautiful tree of life symbol on the back. I neglected to take a photo of the back, but you can see what it looks like by visiting the Marketplace link.

Speaking of pink, it looks like I’ve been photobombed by a flamingo!

What Does’t Kill You Makes You Stronger

Makes You Stronger

Happy weekend, fabulous readers — I hope you all are having a wonderful, relaxing summer! I’m still around and so happy to be back on the blog! I spent most of July sick in bed with a nasty respiratory infection, but I’m much better now (I hope) and glad to be back on my feet. With Carson sick too, this sure hasn’t been a good summer for the health of Fab Free bloggers! :/

I’ve got a couple of things to show you today, starting with this sexy dress from I. M. Collection. Annette comes in Fitmesh sizes S-L, as well as for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink mesh bodies. This one is a group gift, but if blue is not your color, there are some lovely versions in pink and gray for just 100L.

Makes You Stronger

Izzie’s put out these gorgeous eye appliers for the July VIP group gift. They come in 9 different colors and include mesh eyes with a HUD, as well as appliers for Catwa, Lelutka, and Omega eyes.

I should point out that my nails are also a group gift from Hello Dave. 6 colors are included, with appliers for Slink, Maitreya, and Omega hands.

One more thing: Fri.day is having a Summer Flash Sale this weekend until August 6th at 11 p.m. SLT, and lots of sandals will be on sale for just 50L! Not the ones I’m wearing here, unfortunately, but if you like them, you can pick them up at the current round of Uber. 🙂

Bug Me

You Bug Me

Just when the caterpillar thought the world was over, she became a butterfly. 
~Barbara Haines Howett

Happy weekend, fabulous readers! The spring air was so warm and inviting this morning that I felt inspired to visit the Butterfly Conservatory to check out the butterflies. The Butterfly Conservatory is beautiful, as well as educational; not only did I learn about many different species of butterflies, but I also picked up a few tips on what we can do to help save the bees.

To be honest, I learned way more than I ever needed to know about insects… including this guy, who stared me down while his fanny blinked like a lightbulb. We don’t have “lightning bugs” in my neck of the real world, but I do hope the real ones are a bit smaller. Thank goodness he couldn’t get out of his box! 😯

Out of My Cocoon

The butterflies weren’t the only ones spreading their wings this morning. Earlier in the week, Nala Design put out a new gift for Fab Free group members, and I fluttered right over right away to snatch it up. I really like the classic design of this dress, making it perfect not only for a walk in the park but also for the office, shopping, or an evening out with your sweetie.

The Sleeveless Dress in Stone includes the belt and comes in the following sizes:

  • Standard mesh XS-XL with alpha
  • FITMESH XS-XL
  • Belleza
  • Slink
  • Maitreya

To grab this gift for yourself, head over to Nala Design and activate your Fabulously Free in SL in-world group tag. The group is free to join.

Oh! And I added the Sassy/Classy Bag in black and silver, which is only 25L at Duh! I do love me some handbags! ❤

I feel the need to fly off and plant a virtual butterfly garden now. Enjoy the rest of your day! 🙂
