Flirt

Hello my dear FabFree-ers!

Flirt

I hope the weekend coming up has you all excited and happy! I know I am ready for some fun in the sun and some fun under the SL sun too.  I’m starting my weekend with the Flirty Summer Hunt since we only have a few more days to play this one.  This is the ‘Amelie’ dress from K Creations and it’s the 1L prize for this Hunt. I love the styling on this mini dress. The soft colors and the feminine floral print… just wonderful. Amelie comes in the standard Mesh sizes XXS-L as well as a FitMesh version. I found it to be a great fit as well as very nicely built.

My hairstyle is another ‘show-off’ today. This is ‘Gem’ from Little Bones and it’s the very generous free gift at the Hair Fair. You get the large, medium and small versions of the hair plus a Lelutka applier along with a very nice HUD with sixteen natural and not so natural colors.

The Hair Fair will wrap up on July 31st but you have until August 15 for the Flirty Summer Hunt. So get crackin’!

Eclectic Essences at Kustom9

Gacha Kustom9 Hello Fab Free’rs I hope you’re doing well. It’s been a minute since I did some gacha-ing and there are several cute gachas waiting to be played at the current round of Kustom9. You know I can’t resist skin gachas, and especially not when the Essences gacha is set at 75 lindens per play. Also, ieQED has some sweet summer bangles at just 29 lindens per play.  These gachas are really just two of many but they caught my attention first! haha

This beautiful skin is one of the 12 Arwen gacha prizes from Essences at Kustom9. These gachas include Lelutka head applier only. Matching body appliers can be found for sale at the Essences main store. Of the 12 total versions in various skin tones, 10 commons and 2 rares. Pru is wearing the Arwen #9 which is one of the common prizes in the dark01 tone. I personally rarely wear the darker tones, but when I tried this one on, it was just too pretty! It really is a beautiful skin. It also looks lighter or darker depending on your windlight settings, which really just makes me like it even more. At just 75 lindens per play, if you’re a Lelutka head wearer, you need this skin or one of the other equally beautiful versions in your inventory!

I was so excited when I saw that ieQED had a gacha at this round of Kustom9. These bangles are so cute, and are the type of jewelry you could wear with anything. The ieQED gacha is just 29 lindens per play. The rare gets you a color change hud, I wasn’t so lucky, but I’m thrilled with the three bangles I did get. How cute is that pineapple?! Truly I feel like these little “eclectic” bracelets capture the fun of summer perfectly. There are 10 total bangles, and the rare hud will give you the option of picking between 5 metal tones and 6 gem colors.

So you can get a good look a the other Essences and ieQED gacha prizes at Kustom9, I’ve included a copy of the gacha keys below. Good Luck!

Tropical Mornings

Tropical Mornings

I was in the mood to walk the beach this morning… but needed some proper attire. There was a group gift out at paper.arrow that I thought was perfectly fitting for such a walk and so I headed over to pick it up. This slip dress is yours FREE with your group tag. It comes in two versions — the one I am showing you in the picture above which has the mint top and flamingo skirt, or one with an all-over flamingo print.

This dress comes in Maitreya and Slink fits, and does not include an alpha layer (though I’m sure if you needed one, you could probably dig one up out of your inventory). The group fee is a one time cost of 250L, but you’ll find a wall full of past group gifts up at paper.arrow to pick up, as well as this pretty dress to make it worth joining.

I decided I was going to do some “rock hopping” instead of “sand walking” and so I really wanted some cute tennis shoes to finish off my look. Lindy Modern & Retro shoes did not let me down! For just 1L and a little hunting time, I found this pair of adorable pink tennis shoes at their main-store as part of the Beached Bunny Hunt 6. These shoes includes fits for classic, Slink flat, and Maitreya feet… so everyone wins out!

Not a Wall Flower

Not a Wall Flower

Call me old school if you will, but Casablanca is one of my favorite movies… right up there with Citizen Kane. So when I realized there was a Casablanca remake Sim in Second Life I knew I wanted to check it out. Loki got there before me, but my turn has long been overdue… I just hadn’t found the right outfit… until now.

The Moda Midnight Mania board locked down again yesterday, giving me another set of great FREE shoes for my slink feet. These heels are stunning and come in white with a hud to change the metal on the underside (gold, silver, or bronze). If you missed them when they locked down yesterday, they are there also again today, only in a slightly modified version… so they are worth locking down again today if you picked them up yesterday. I’ve heard a few people say they had some delivery issues. Not to worry, just hit the redelivery terminal and they will be sent to you!

And then I realized that I’d missed the June group gift for TBO The Beautiful Ones! But luckily it is still out! This Venus Dress in Turquoise is still out, though I’m not sure for how long. It comes in all your standard fitmesh sizes and also supports all the major mesh body types like Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza. It has a beautiful front, and equally dramatic back (with a plunging back… phew… sexy) and fits like a dream.

There are several ways you can pick up this stunner. If you are a group member (the group membership is 25L) the dress is yours FREE, just pay the terminal 1L and your 1L is immediately refunded and the dress is delivered to you. You can also opt to pay the special price of just 10L if you don’t have any group space, or wish to opt out of joining the group. OR if you are already a subscriber, you can click the subscriber and the dress will be delivered to you completely FREE, no group required. Note: this does not work for new subscriber members, you must have been a past subscriber, so this is a good reason to subscribe and stay a subscriber!

Not a Wall Flower 2

Though I admit that Casablanca the movie was in black and white… I always imagine it being a colorful world. When I saw this FREE group gift flower headpiece by Finesmith (the group is FREE to join), I knew I had to add it to my look… it just had the right feel to finish off what I wanted to feel (yes lots of feels in there right?). Because of course at Casablanca there can never really be any wall flowers… not really… or if they are, they are wall flowers in disguise, pretending to be wall flowers when they are really not. Or that’s somehow the way I imagine that world. “Play it again, Sam!”

I have always found something magical in Second Life about dancing. And in real life, when I have gone to festivals, I have always been taken in by the beauty of different types of dancing. Veil dancers, especially, have taken my interest.

Right now, there are four gifts available for FREE at [House of Ruby] — two each for both men and women. They are beautiful, classy bodysuits that could be used for lingerie, or as depicted above, for something more exotic even.

If you join the [House of Ruby] group (it is a FREE join) you can get a matching men and women’s Ruby Leopard bodysuit or unitard for FREE. The women’s suit includes a small top for modesty. These suits do not include system layers, but you get Omega and Slink appliers for each.

If you hit the subscriber (again this is FREE), you’ll be gifted with the suit that you see Loki wearing, except that the difference is the color — it is the “Leopard” color instead. Just as the group gift includes both a male and female version, the subscriber includes both a male and female version as well.

Nerdy Girl in-world Closing Sale

Super Heroes

It’s hard to see much beloved stores close their doors in Second Life… and Nerdy Girl has announced that she will be moving the in-world store to the Marketplace to pursue new adventures after July 12th. In the meantime, as a bit of a farewell gift to all the loyal customers who love nerdology, the in-world store is having a last hoorah and closing sale before it moves to the marketplace… a bonus for all of us loyal shoppers:)

Nerdy Girl has put out all the old gifts for one thing, so if you are a group member, stop by and pick up any you missed (the join fee is only 25L if you are not already a member, and with all the goodies, it’s worth joining).

In addition, all store merchandise is priced at 25L or lower, excluding gachas. In salute to the Nerdy ways, Loki and I decided to go as Nerd Heroes. I am not convinced that he got it quite right, but then he thinks I didn’t do it right either… we agreed to disagree, since Rainbow Brite is my favorite, and he said Superman was super.

My rainbow bright costume includes the mesh skirt, applier top and leggings, and the bow (which comes in a left, center, or right fit). For 25L, it’s quite a deal!

Loki’s mesh hoodie in all the standard sizes is quite a find indeed, as there is a texture change hud included. The hud changes the t-shirt and hoodie separately, for lots of nerd fun… hero symbols on the shirt and hoodie all separate for whatever hero you want to be that day. For 25L, there’s a hero in every guy just waiting to come out!

Jazzy and Independent

Jazzy Independent

Neve has another super cute FREE group gift out for us, Ladies! You won’t want to miss out on this one, so hurry to get this gorgeous Jazzy Independent dress with it’s 4 color hud! I’m showing you the red with design option, but it also comes in 3 other colors… which are red, white, and blue… all plain enough for every day use, but dressy enough in style for to be practical for a date as well if you added the right accessories.

This dress comes in standard mesh sizes as well as all your needed fitmesh sizes such as Freya, Isis, Physique, Hourglass, and Lara. The group is FREE to join, making this gift totally FREE as well.

My hair today is also a group gift, courtesy of KoKoLoReS Hair. This is Lilou. The group join fee is 250L, but from past experience, the gifts are frequent and generous and this one alone, with its full fatpack hud of colors, is worth your fee. There is a regular fit, as well as a busty fit, inside the box when you pick it up.

I have a couple of lucky finds for you this Saturday morning! And both are FREE!

First, stop by EvelineInTheBox and pick up this pretty FREE group gift that has been set out for all of us to enjoy. The group is FREE to join. This pretty camisk comes in all the standard sizes and has a pretty hem with geometric flowers along the edge to give it a little flair. It’s more of a roleplay item than a modern clothing item, but you could pair it with jeans or shorts to make it a cute top if you wanted!

This week’s Lucky Dip at PA Designe is a cute heart padlock choker shown with a close-up in the picture below. You won’t need the group or to spend a single linden — you’ll just need some luck! Take a dip, and see if you win! It’s FREE if you are the lucky dipper!

Off the Beaten Path

Off the Beaten Path

Hear ye, Hear ye! Calling all roleplayers! And anyone who loves great cosplay! Or just fabulous medieval clothing! You don’t have much time to get in on this deal… so make haste! And run… errrr teleport… to The White Armory, right away!

The White Armory is discontinuing over 200 gowns and outfits Sunday, July 3rd… but they are turning that into a positive for roleplayers (and anyone else who loves their clothes). All of these beautiful items are on clearance for only 25L per item until that date. These are older items, mostly flexi and standard avatar gowns, however I did find some mesh items in the discount section, as I am sporting above. Either way, all the outfits and gowns are beautiful, and the sale is worth taking a look for the avid roleplayer who would like to save some Linden.

To find the sale, take the “portal to the discount level of the store and look for the bright pink wall” (directions per the notice in The White Armory).

Happy clearance shopping!
