monaLISA Smiles For Lucky Boards

Snapshot_003
Hey there Fabulous Readers! I came across a “new to me” shop this past weekend where I  picked up a fantastic lucky board prize, as I was updating The FabFree Advent Listing.    monaLISA is hosting an instore advent calendar which you will need to join their group to take advantage of (100L to join), but when you do join their group, you will also gain access to their massive selection of group gifts and group lucky boards too.

I got lucky…

I got lucky, because as I was peeking around the monaLISA shop, a letter “L” popped up in the lucky chair with the Anjali Outfit you see me wearing today.  The patchwork textured Anjali Outfit includes the top and matching skirt, alpha layer, as well as a texture change HUD for a handful of different colours to change both at the same time.

Sizes included:

  • Fitmesh XS-L
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Belleza Venus
  • Slink Physique

I will definitely be back with more news about this shop, but  make sure you go check it out for yourself!

Through the Woods this Black Friday

Into the woods

Sn@tch up your fishing rods folks, the tides are coming in again!

I was just talking to Kathryn the other day about the fishing prizes at Sn@tch and she commented on what an avid angler I’ve become. It really isn’t hard to get hooked (ha ha) on fishing for prizes as Sn@tch changes out its prize outfits on the regular and they never fail to contain a wide variety of clothing pieces so that you can play around with different looks. Not only that but accessories, makeup and footwear are often thrown into the mix that you can wear with other items in your inventory. The latest Fish 4 This outfit is called Through the Woods and generously contains;

  • Five system snowpants in plum, red, green (pictured), teal and white
  • Snowpants mesh cuffs
  • Two system turtleneck sweaters in grey (pictured) and black
  • Five mesh tops in army (pictured), black, plum, red and teal
  • Mesh Fur Coat
  • Ankle boots
  • Though the Woods makeup tattoo layer in plum (not pictured)

If you have a mesh body or head never fear as you can catch the Omega applier for all the system and tattoo layer parts of the outfit from the prize filled waters. The mesh tops and fur coat come in both come in five standard mesh sizing (XS-XL) with an added fitmesh size for the fur coat and respective alpha layers to help with the fitting. Speaking of alpha layers, one is included for the ankle boots as well and you don’t need to have mesh fit to be able to slide these beauties on. Whew! That’s a ton of detail but I had a lot of fun figuring out the color combinations and there are already a few dresses that I have in mind that would go wonderfully with those boots. Fishing at Sn@tch is completely free but you do need to purchase a basic fishing rod for 100L to get in on the fun. Rods are available on the marketplace or at the Sn@tch store. It’s a great investment as you’ll get a lot of mileage on these outfits so to speak and since it’s Sn@tch, it’s top quality!

Into the woods (bonus)

While I was there…

Alright, alright I’ll admit that fishing is not all I do when I’m at Sn@tch. If you’ve been to the store you can’t really fault me for that as there are a lot of great outfits lining the walls. What’s more that are lucky boards to stalk and riot vendors to keep your eyes on so I had great fun multitasking and packing my wardrobe with great clothes from Sn@tch. The gown pictured above is new on their riot vendors and something that I just had to share. I got it for 55L as the store was pretty packed that day and when I opened the package up, I was floored by the options. First of all, you’ll get this glittery and flowing floor length skirt in five standard mesh sizes (XS-XL). Secondly, the strappy and backless top comes in eight different colors and five standard mesh sizes as well (XS-XL). Thirdly, there are also two different alpha layers included in the package to play around with. The subtle dusting of glitter on the skirt and the rhinestones that line the neckline of the top add a glamorous air to the whole outfit. Not only do I intend to wear this for upcoming parties this Chrismas but it’s also given ideas on a new blog segment as well (hmmm). Bring a friend or ten to Sn@tch today and pull those prices down, down, down to get the Gala Sparkling Brocade Gown into your inventory as well.

So you may have noticed…

So you may have noticed that I’m wearing a different hairstyle in each picture. That’s because of Black Friday and the insane number of sales that are going on right now. The offers that I’m about to list down are time sensitive as they end today but there’s nothing like a bit of rushing to get that adrenaline pumping I’d like to say. In the top three pictures, I’m wearing hairstyles from Doe that is having a 50% off sale for all of its Gachas. Playing a Gacha from this store has always been a staple for me at Gacha events so I was over the moon excited. Doe always has the cutest hairstyles and their colors are always so vibrant.

In the bottom two pictures, I’m wearing hairstyles from Besom. The store is marking down its hair packs to 75L and I took the opportunity to fill up the gaps in my Besom hair collection. I’ve always been a fan of the wonderful texturing of Besom hairstyles and their styles have an urban flavor to it yet still look so elegant. Hurry down to both stores to take advantage of these great deals maybe we’ll bump into each other as I’m certainly making the trip back.

7 Deadly s{K}ins is going to be having free group join starting from the 28th of November! I can’t say enough how much I love the skins from this merchant and they always have such great perks for their group members. Not only are there regular monthly group gifts, there are also Midnight Mania and Mini Mania boards as well as Lucky Chairs. While browsing through their Black Friday Sale (60% off CasperVend items!) I managed to claim the Libra skin for myself. I’m been eyeing this skin set for so long that I was jumping for joy to see that my letter was up. Luckily I didn’t hit the ‘discard’ button in my excitement so now I’ll be able to tell you all about the Libra skin set! In the package, you’ll receive the Libra classic skin with cleavage/no cleavage options in five different tones (Pineapple tone pictured) as well as appliers for Slink hands and feet, Tango boob, and Phat Azz. What I thought was special about this skin package was that a version of this skin in Gothic makeup is included as well. The Gothic skins come in the same five tones as well as cleavage/no cleavage options. You’ll get twenty skins in one pack as a lucky chair prize, how mind-blowing is that? Mark your calenders for the 28th and wait patiently…

You might also want to…

Check out Elephante poses. The store is having a Black Friday and Retirement sale with the entire store excluding collabs and new releases being marked down to 50% off. The older stock is being marked down to 75% off so be sure to look for purple and white tagged items for more discounts. I really love using the poses here as they’re very fluid so come and take advantage of the sales before it ends on the 27th of this month.

And that’s a wrap for today. I’ve gotta dive back into those Black Friday sales. Maybe I can even claw my way to the one at Truth….

To Fall

To fall

With Halloween right around the corner and with it tons of candy and spooky decorations and parties, I thought it would be fun to scour the grid to bring to you some free or under 75L costume ideas. My usual style tends towards the casual but if there’s anything Second Life has taught me it’s to try new things…so here goes! If you’re not on the RP scene like I am (getting there it’s on my bucket list) but just want to look like someone straight out of a fantasy novel for a day, head on down to Sadix Shop and try your luck on their lucky chairs. The chairs are open to the public with no group join required so when your letter is called you can have this outfit in your inventory entirely for free.

The armor set featured is the Libra outfit and includes everything shown including a fiery back detail and arcane field that is not pictured. The boots, top, and panties of the Libra outfit are mesh and come in the following sizes; boots (S-XL), panties (XS-L) and top (XXS-L). There are alpha layers included for all three items though in the spirit of full disclosure I did have to play with my sliders just a little especially in the chest area. Still, I personally feel that the few tweaks are well worth it as the armor set is well made and detailed. I love the deep red color and feel that it pairs off well with the burnished gold accents. If you have a mesh body that uses the Lola’s Tango applier there is an applier for the top included in the package as well.

The knee and shoulder guards, as well as the skirt, lends another layer of detail to the Libra outfit. These can be edited into position with your shape and I feel that they make great mix and match options if you want to change how the outfit looks. There is also a Lucky Chair for the male version of the Libra outfit as well as a no group required Midnight Mania board that you can slap if you want to try the Libra Guardian avatar.

The skin I’m wearing in this picture is the October group gift from 7 Deadly s{K}ins. If you enjoyed sweet-faced Klaasje then this fantasy skin tone set will be a great update for RP or themed parties in general. The pack includes classic system skin in the tone dust with cleavage and no cleavage options, Omega head appliers for LAQ, Catwa and [AK] heads, Slink hand and feet appliers as well as Omega body appliers various mesh bodies and a Maitreya body applier. Whew! That’s a skin pack with lots of varied options. The generosity of creators in Second Life never ceases to amaze me. I don’t own a mesh body or head (on that bucket list) but it’s an education just reading these skin packages.

Well! I’m off to find another costume idea. Till next time!

Vivi On Fire

Happy Thursday FabFree-ers! I hope you are having a great day. Today is a beautiful day outside where I am and I hope it is just as beautiful wherever you are!

Today I have two gorgeous dresses to show you, both are from Maai and both are free! The first is a group gift and is a divine white satin gown called Vivi. I love the ruffles at the bottom! This is a mesh gown but the ruffles at the bottom are prim attachments so you could wear the gown without for a sleeker look if you wanted to. It also comes with Phat Azz and Tango appliers.

I was lucky enough to win from the Lucky Board while I was stopping by the store and the prize was this sizzling dress called Darla in the On Fire print. It is seriously sexy! Love previously blogged the dress here but it really does deserve being shown again! The amazing necklace and ring is part of the Picture Show jewelry set by Glow Studio which is their current group gift. It costs L$50 to join the group but there are regular gifts and discounts on purchases for group members.

Attention: FabFree Inworld Group Members

After much discussion with some of the moderators and FabFree group members, the idea to allow mention of lucky chairs and midnight mania prizes has come up, with the following interests:

1.  Members of both groups would like to save a group, and just use one being that we are limited to 42.
2.  Lucky Chair prizes and MM Board prizes are indeed free, and the information is of interest to our FabFree members being a group dedicated to sharing news of free items.

While I did ask a few times in group chat at different times to the people that happened to be online at that time, opinions are mixed and I wanted to open up this discussion to all so that we could come to an open and fair decision before making any changes to our beloved group.

Currently we have two inworld groups…  We have Fabulously Free in SL which is a large and very chatty group of approximately 20,000 people dedicated to sharing free items, and Fabulously Lucky Chairs which is a smaller fairly quiet group of approximately 600 members (most of which are already in the FabFree group) dedicated specifically to lucky letter and midnight mania board prizes.

You can find a complete list of the FabFree Inworld Group rules here ->  https://fabfree.wordpress.com/fabfree-group-rules/.  These rules are sent to the inworld group via notice from time to time, and are easy to find with a link from the group profile to the blog – as well as are always available here on the FabFree Blog at the tabs in the top via FAQs & Tutorials -> FabFree Guidelines.

The current rules state:  Lucky Chairs, Midnight Manias, and Riot Vends (etc) are not allowed in the main group. You can join the FabLucky Group for those. (It is, however, acceptable for designers to mention lucky chairs and midnight manias in their notices!)

If we were to allow the change, the new rules would state:  Lucky Chair, Midnight Mania & Riot Vends (etc) information may be posted once per day, per member. Designers and store staff are not to spam the group with advertising of midnight mania boards and lucky board prizes – Designers are to include mention of their lucky chairs and MM board prizes in their notices.  Lucky Letter call outs are not allowed – and would be grounds for removal. (Spam eg.  “Blablabla Store – Letters KEH OWG)

Things I want to make clear before you vote:

1.  Sending letter call outs to the FabFree group (eg.  “Blablabla Store – Letters KEH OWG) would not be allowed and would be grounds for group removal.  You would receive one warning, and would be ejected after the second offence.  The Fabulously Lucky inworld group would remain open for members that wish to call or receive the letter call outs.

2.  Designers and store staff would utilize their one daily notice for advertising, not send spam via chat as per the rules already.

3.  You are able to turn off the chat if you find it too disruptive.

Thank you for your input!  These results will be public, and the decision will be made next weekend based on these pole results.  You are also welcome to leave a comment on this post with your concerns or questions.
