Down at the Rock and Roll Club

A few days ago someone posted in the Luas Store Group the lucky letters on the boards at Luas, and one was mine.  I love Luas, so I was excited at the chance to win something off their prize board.  I rushed to the store right away, hoping I did not miss it.  I got there right in time I nabbed this cute punk dress for free. The Valeria dress came in two styles, solid black and black plaid.  It also included these cute leg garter accesories as well.  You can wear the garters with the dress, but also mix and match with your other outfits.

A punk dress needs some bold lipstick and tattoos, right?  I’ve talked about about Free Bees before, but I can’t say enough about their nice makeup, which the store offers for free on the marketplace. The lip gloss I am wearing is from Free Bees Mermaid Makeup set.  Like all their makeup, this lipgloss is BOM.  As I mentioned in my last post, I am on a real tattoo kick.  I love that I can change body art like makeup and wear it to compliment an outfit.  I found this nice little set of face tattoos by La Baguette for free on the marketplace.

Dress Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus

Love the Fighters

Love the Fighters

These days, it’s getting more and more likely that you’ll find a really kick-ass female lead in a movie.  I’m happy to report that so many movie makers are starting to understand that a strong female character really can carry a film.  I get really inspired by the likes of Black Widow, Wonder Woman and even the March girls from Little Women.  They all know what it means to fight like a girl!

Fight it Out

Luas is celebrating these strong women with their latest group gift.  You can pick up this cute skirt and top combo (and loads of other gifts) by joining the group for 50L.  The top and skirt can be worn separately and come with an extensive HUD to customize your look.  Lots of fun!

Sizes

  • Maitreya
  • Maitreya Petite
  • Legacy
  • Legacy Perky
  • Freya
  • Hourglass

Keep on fighting!

Cacophony

Cacophony

It was a quiet Sunday morning.  All was peaceful, and a thin mist was hanging in the sunny hollows.  The birds were just beginning to wake, and a calm lay over the land….when suddenly the roofers appeared across the way and started making a godawful racket.  Their hammers rained blows upon the roof they were perched upon, and horror of horrors: they woke me up.  How could they possibly destroy the peace and tranquility I had so clearly earned?  Travesty, I say!

Back to Kustom9

The only way to get out of the funk caused by the uncaring roofers was clearly to get into some shopping therapy.  The best way to do that is always to shop but not spend any Lindens (and also listen to loud music and eat a cake pop…)!  I headed back to Kustom9, where they’re still celebrating their anniversary, and picked up a few of the gifts I missed out on on my first whirlwind visit.  It’s much quieter now, so you’ll actually be able to walk through at a semi-leisurely pace.  As mentioned before, the gifts from Kustom9 are all free to members of the free-to-join Kustom9 group!  Here’s what I’ve got on:

  • FREE top by Luas sized for Freya, Hourglass, Legacy, Maitreya, Maitreya Petite and Legacy Perky.  Comes with an HUD to change to 8 different colours and five different images on the front!
  • FREE skirt by M.Birdie sized for Maitreya

Kustom9 is running until November 10th!

FabFree Coverage of Kustom9:

Sweet but Psycho by Prudence Rexroth
I’m Lovin’ It! by Prudence Rexroth
Fixated by Aline Passiflora
Falling for Fall by Aline Passiflora

Maybe it’s time to invest in some earplugs!

Crowned

Crowned

Hello again, FabFree. After Aline’s post about all the great loot over at the Halloween Shop and Hop I had to go check it out myself. And if you haven’t gone over yet… why not? There are so many gifts, plus gachas and great deals to be had.

Crowning Glory 

Let’s start at the top, shall we. I am sporting the October Group Gift from Luas and it’s just spectacular! This is the Solar Crown and you can pick it up for free if you are a member of the Luas group. While there is a one time fee to join the group, it’s well worth it just for the tons of free gifts. There’s even a whole wall of past gifts to pick from. The crown comes with a HUD to change the colors of thermoses, the halo and the horns.

Hoppin’ an’ Shoppin’ 

Now for our Shop and Hop gifts. My new hair style is the free gift from Sintiklia called “Hazel”.  I love the wispy bangs which you can turn on and off if you please. You also get a HUD for the “Classy” set of 32 colors. Plus, you get a Tinter so you can get that perfect shade you want.

My new spell binding top and shimmery skirt are both from the “Fionna” gacha in the Annex shop. For just 25L per play, I was able to pull the top and the skirt in my favorite color: purple, of course! Now if purple isn’t your thing… Fionna comes in six colors for you to choose from.

Possessed

Possessed

Hello There Fab Free’rs! Once again I’m feeling very in the spooky spirit of the season. I a few more of the many many many Halloween Shop & Hop gifts. I created this almost pretty possessed look using the gift skin from YS&YS, the gift dress from Luas, and the septum piercing gift from RAWR!. I really hope you have some fun with these freebies.

YS&YS

I can’t help but love this free skin from YS&YS at the Halloween Shop & Hop event. Even with her scarred face, she’s still a pretty chick. This would be such a fun skin to create a story around. This free gift includes BOM layer full skins, face only BOM layers. There are also variations to suit Genus, Lelutka, and Catwa heads. There are also two pairs of BOM layer eyes, the “blind” eyes shown and a creepy cool black pair.

Luas 

This skeleton print dress is the free gift at the Halloween Shop & Hop by Luas. The “Donna” dress comes in a full fatpack with lots of HUD based color choices. Even with the exposed shoulders the dress has an almost cozy look to it that makes it a cool addition to any fall wardrobe.

Sizes Included: Belleza Freya, Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass, MeshBody Legacy & Perky

RAWR!

Lastly, the planchette septum piercing from RAWR! was just the added touch this look needed. It’s also free at the Halloween Shop & Hop event. Included with the piercing is a color change HUD that gives you several options for the metal ring and the planchette part of the piercing.

When the stars come out

When the stars come out

Good evening, FabFree. Confession time. I am NOT a morning person. I am such a nocturnal creature. I love when the sun finally goes down and the stars come out. I love when the moon is so bright it lays shadows on the ground. The sounds of the crickets and peeper frogs… ahh, I relax just thinking about. My real life “Mr. Juli” is an astrophysicist by trade and he shares my love of the night sky. In fact, the first date he took me on, way back when, was out to star gaze. (He also caught an armadillo for me… but that’s a whole other story)

Stars

I’m doing some pretty pastel star gazing today with this sweet dress from Waffles. This is the ‘Purple Fade Galaxy Zest’ dress and I snapped it up for just 2 little Lindens and a little Hunting. Sour Pickles Hunts are without a doubt some of the best in Second Life. And Dream of the Galaxy is no different. Each designer has set out fantastic prizes but Waffles dress just made my heart flutter. There is also a men’s gift for this hunt at Waffles so don’t miss it!

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • eBody
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic – Curvy, Fine

Body Positive

Body Positive

Ok FabFree, I may be just a little naughty today.  Well…make that a lot.   Second Life has a very big kink-positive community, as I’m sure you’re all aware, though I’ll warrant it’s not everyone’s cup of tea.  Maybe you fall into SL’s  lingerie-positive community instead!  Whatever you’re into, SL welcomes you with open arms.  Oh, and some freebies!

Feeling Lucky

Luas is back with some new goodies on their lucky boards!  This corset comes courtesy of my extreme patience and a bit of luck.  There are two cute outfits on the boards at Luas, and all you have to do to get them is join the group for 50L and wait for your letter to come up!  If you’re not into this type of look, the other board has a very demure back-to-school vibe outfit that may suit  you better.  Don’t forget to pick up all the group gifts while you’re there too!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

Cover it Up

The little heart-shaped pasties I used to cover my bits come from I ❤ F & Co.   They come with a little fishnet tube top as well, but I just used the pasties.  There’s an HUD included with all sorts of different colours too.  To get it, just click on the subscribe-o-matic board on the front desk!  If it isn’t delivered to you, hit the “history” button on the pop-up and you’ll see the gift listed there.  Yep, it’s free!

Beach Yoga

Beach Yoga

As we head into the start of a new week I’m all about some self care. I’ve decided to make some time for things like a little yoga and some meditation in my regular routine. For me there’d be no better spot for some restful mental zen than a quiet spot on the beach. It’s a good thing Luas put out this cute yoga mat out as their new group gift just in time for my rekindled dedication to mental clarity.

Luas

This new group gift at Luas comes with a built-in bento hold pose, and a texture change hud with a hand-full of color combo choices. The Luas group is 50 linden to join. If you are new to the Luas group (or haven’t been in a while) you can also grab quite a few of the past group gifts, and access the group-only Lucky Letter boards. You can check out one of those cool prizes in Aline’s recent post “Sharpened Pencils.”

Carol G

I’m also sporting the new women’s Midnight Mania board prize from Carol G. This gorgeous blue toned upper body tattoo is free with your Carol G group tag, just join the mania. The Carol G group is 200 linden to join, and there are tons of male and female free group gifts, and a men’s Midnight Mania board as well.

Appliers & Layers Included: Neck Appliers – Omega, Catwa, Lelutka, Vista / Body Appliers – Omega, Maitrey a, Legacy, Slink, Belleza / BOM Tattoo Layers – 35%, 50%, 75%, 100%

NecoT

Lastly, you can’t go to the beach without sunglasses. Or at least you shouldn’t if you ask me. lol These cool aviators are a Marketplace dollarbie by NecoT. They come in 3 variations, a cool yellow color, a mirrored black, and this transparent black pair. They are also 100% mesh, copy, and mod so you can customize the color of the lenses and frames yourself if you want to. Needless to say these are well worth the 1 linden.

Sharpened Pencils

Sharpened Pencils

It’s far too early in the year to feel this way, but this outfit is kind of giving me back to school vibes.  I’m sorry, really I am… But you know that whole feeling of new clothing, a hint of houndstooth, the promise of new adventures, and perfectly sharpened pencils.  I’m a sucker for that kind of thing, though I know that school has just ended (for the weirdest year ever).  Enjoy the summer, but if you are feeling a bit of nostalgia, I’ll tell you where you can grab it!

Mustard and Houndstooth

This sweet and vaguely reminiscent of “Clueless” outfit is courtesy of Luas‘ lucky boards.  They were recently updated with two cute outfits, this one being one of them!  The Luas group is 50L to join, and with that fee you’ll gain access to some awesome gifts, as well as these lucky boards.  A bit of patience is all that’s required after that – just wait for your letter to come up!

I Love it

There are so many things to show you from SL17B, that I couldn’t resist showing you this lovely hairstyle from Love.  It’s completely free, no group join required over at the Shop & Hop.  You’ve still got time to pick up goodies from this massive event, so grabbing this free fatpack of hair shouldn’t be too much of a chore.

I swear I’ll go back to thinking about summer real soon!
