Great Day to Mermaid

Viki Mermaid Tail $25L Tues 8/02/21

It’s a wet & rainy week where I live in RL. It’s a perfect day to be a mermaid. Have you ever noticed that a mermaid’s hair is never frizzy? It has to be part of the magic; it’s not like that in the swampy land I hail from.

Tuesday Sale

Shopping and picking up freebies in SL makes me happy! One my favorite sales is $25LT ($25 Linden Tuesday). It’s a rare day when nothing offered makes my ears perk up (or would that be my eyelids?). Being a mermaid seems appealing.

Today, I found this incredible mermaid tail at Viki for $25L!  The Viki Marine Bento Tail is Bento and unisex so mermen can wear it too.

Sizes

  • Female – Maitreya, Freya, & Legacy
  • Male – Jake, Signature, & Legacy Athletic

Sea Friends

Sea Friends

Hey FabFree! Tonight I am showing off some awesome free sea pets, how to make a free fully bento, BOM, and mesh mermaid avatar, and free skins and shapes on the FabFree enchanted forest hunt!

The Tale of the Orca and the Starfish

The first thing I want to mention are my adorable underwater pets. As you might recall, I love animals and I also love fish and underwater creatures! This amazing and precious Orca is free gift at SL18B and you have just enough time to go grab him because the event ends tomorrow. This will be my last SL18B find to share and I am super sad about it, because I just loved this event. However, this beautiful gift by Jian is simply amazing. The Orca swims along with your avatar and it even does water tricks! It is just magical watching her/him swim underwater. Go grab this Orca for free at Jian’s booth at SL18B before it’s too late. 

The other cute little animal shown in my post today is the adorable starfish, who you will see has little cute, pouting eyes. This is a fish I caught with my 7Seas casual fishing rod for free. The rod costs 99L to buy, but you can catch free outfits with it (remember Aline and Arielles recent Sn@tch fishing post here?). While waiting for outfits, I have caught a lot of fish too and they are actually really cute pets! Many are animated, can swim around you, or you can rezz them in a tank or aquarium. They are too cute to delete. I just love this little starfish guy, and you can see a close-up of his little face below. 

Free Mermaids, anyone?

The other finds I want to share today are items that can be used to make a full, free BOM, Bento mesh mermaid avatar. 

The OpenMerTail

My mermaid tail is a free fully bento (moving) mesh tail- how cool is that! It’s like a total extension of your avatar. This tail moves and twists like a mesh avatar but the trick is to get the right bento ao for it to make full use of the bento features. The tail also includes fins which can be worn or detached. There is more information about this awesome bento, BOM mesh tail in the package, but it is all totally free on the Marketplace. This tail can be used on male, female and non-binary avatars. Because the OpenMerTail is its own mesh avatar part, you need to find and use BOM skins designed for the tail itself, and there is also a pack for creators and designers to make new skins for it! The tail is a full perm item. Note that a bento mermaid AO is not included in the package. 

Sizes Included

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Belleza Freya
  • Belleza Jake
  • Legacy Athletic
  • Must Trade Bara

OpenMerTail - Fullperm Bento Mermaid Tail

And here is a list of more free items I used to make my mermaid avatar:

  • I mentioned above how you will need skins for your new tail. Motley Fluke has several skins for the tail available for free on their marketplace store. The blue tail skin I am wearing can be purchased here for free. These tail skins are BOM and work only on the free mermaid tail advertised above. 
  • The stars pasties used to cover up my chest are another freebie on the marketplace. These stars are by Yama’s Ideas and they are unrigged, resizable mesh items. I just resized them manually to fit my avatar perfectly. The mesh pasties come in many different colours. 
  • The little bubbles below are a free animation by Stargaze on the marketplace designed for mermaid avatars. These are so realistic and perfect for creating realism of moving in the water. 
  • Finally, the skin used on my mermaid avatar is a free prize on the FabFree Enchanted Forest Hunt. This is one of several hunt prizes from 7 Deadly S[K]ins. The natural skin, untouched with no makeup, can be seen in my photo below. I am also wearing a free shape included in the hunt, but I just edited the tummy of the shape to fit the mermaid tail. The vendor ad of all the 7DS skins available for free on the hunt is posted below. These skin prizes are BOM and they include shapes and tattoos for Lelutka Evo elf ears as well. 

Mer Detail

☑ Enchanted Forest Hunt ☑ 5 skin boxes WITH shape included hidden in the store

When you add all these parts together, you will have a full bento, mesh, BOM mermaid avatar! Enjoy the mermaid and the orca, FabFree!

Hey gang!

I have so much wonderfulness for you today courtesy of MOoH!  Let’s begin underwater, shall we?

(You’re singing it now, aren’t you?)

There is a wonderland of fun and fabulous gachas at MOoH!, this is just one of them, the Mermaid Gacha.  It is only 50L a play and let me tell you, these items are gorgeous and you will be heading underwater before you know it to sing siren songs and collect up some studly unsuspecting sailors of your very own!  The key is below so you can see all the amazing things you can get to mermaid yourself!  (that’s like a very non insulting insult.  Hey!  Go mermaid yourself, huh!)  The rainbow color I am wearing is the RARE (for the *extra* studly sailors!  Hee hee).

My very mermaid-y hair is from No.Match, it is a free group gift (group is 50L to join, but when I tell you for that 50L you can get well over 40 group gifts for both the ladies and the guys. I’m not whistling dixie y’all!)  It’s a really hairy group!  In this case that’s a good thing!!

My Makeup is from MOCK (eyes 40L on Marketplace) and Freebees (Lips free!).

coming soon to fab free

Can you say MOoH!-licious?

I am such a sucker for all things bohemian.  Both in second life and real life!  MOoH! is participating in the Peace by Peace Hunt and they have this absolutely adorable boho style dress as their prize.  I chose an extra bold color for my picture cause, well, that’s just me!  This dress comes with a HUD that gives you 8 patterns to choose from for the dress and the cute gladiator sandals that come with it (not shown, obv.).  It fits:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Tonic – Curvy & Fine
  • Venus

This is a 1L hunt and runs from June 1 to June 30.

Miss Mermaid


Mermaid

Down in the depths of the ocean! Or perhaps just under the water at Mermaid Cove, that’s where I found this fun mermaid gacha by NYNE that I am excited to share with you. I also picked up a free group gift by Sweet Thing, and a free gift by Shiny Stuffs while swimming through the underwater shopping at Mermaid Cove.

NYNE Miss Mermaid Gacha

Mermaid Cove is definitely a cool shopping event, well worth the visit just to see all the fanciful underwater scenery. For this mermaid themed event NYNE put out a colorful mermaid themed gacha that is just 69 linden per pull. **Please be sure that if you play this gacha you play for the size/fit you want.** I played the Slink Hourglass option so my mermaid tail and starfish would fit my Slink Hourglass body. The rare tale comes with mermaid animations that seemed to work when walking, but better when flying. I’ll include a gacha key for this Mermaid Cove gacha by NYNE below.

[NYNE] Miss Mermaid Gacha - Key

The Shell Necklace by Sweet Thing

Sweet Thing put out a cute shell necklace at Mermaid Cove that is free to all Sweet Thing group members. The Sweet Thing group is also free to join at this time. The necklace includes a color change hud with a few preset colors for the ribbon and some for the shell also. It’s the perfect mermaid accessory! To get yours head over to the Sweet Thing stall at Mermaid Cove and click the gift vendor while wearing your Sweet Thing group tag.

The Bubbles by Shiny Stuffs 

Shiny Stuffs helped make my day with their fun bubbles they have for free at Mermaid Cove. There’s no group needed, just find the Shiny Stuffs stall at Mermaid Cove and enjoy the bubbles. This free gift includes a version with a glow and without.

The Last Siren Song

The Last Siren Song
Well Fab Free’rs, we have officially made it into autumn. The hot summer nights have begun to give way to balmy afternoons and cool crisp evenings. Truly it is the end of mermaid season in the Western Hemisphere. I like to imagine all the sirens migrate to warmer waters this time of year.

What has me waxing poetic about mermaids in late September? This gorgeous shell bikini is a current free group gift at Beauty Factory. Also, the Beauty Factory group is free to join until September 25th. So do not wait to pick this up! There are additional previous group gifts also available.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza Freya, Slink Hourglass

Splashing Around at the Beach

Splashing Around at the Beach

Hello FabFree!

Today I decided I need a beach day, so I decided to head over to Adele, in my new bathing suit that I picked up from Mermaid Cove and try out the texture change between dry and wet. Well, as I am exploring Salt from Salt and Pepper comes into group chat and says they have a new Group Gift out! Turns out it’s the cover-up for my new bathing suit, so I had to share it all with you!

The in-world Salt and Pepper group is $300L to join, but past gifts are also available in-store, you can see some past gift coverage {here}. The group gift and bathing suit react to SL water! When you walk into water or interact with other S&P Aquasense items, the texture will change to mermaid! I completely admit, I may have squealed a little when I first got into the water and my entire suit changed, but we won’t talk about that… Giggles. It’s like you have two-in-one! The HUD also offers your cover-up or suit to be mermaid or dry all the time. As well as allowing you to change the amount of seconds it takes for your outfit to dry, after entering the water and activating the interactive function!

The Sierra group gift is located inside the Salt and Pepper main store, on a huge billboard/poster, you can’t miss it! Just don’t forget to wear your group tag!!

Salt and Pepper- Sierra Sizing:

  • Maitreya
  • Slink- Hourglass
  • Belleza- Freya

In the Cool of the Pool

In the Cool of the Pool
Hello again Fab Free’rs. I’m happy to see you. Truth be told I couldn’t think of a better way for this would be mermaid to spend the afternoon than floating in the cool of the pool under the shade of a palm tree. Speaking of mermaids, the Makeover Room gift from Entice is very mermaid-y. I know that’s not a word, but I couldn’t find a better way to describe this cute gift. Also, I found the perfect summery pink pout at Pout!. I went ahead and included the vendor ads for each of these free gifts so you can see the colors and options. Keep reading for the where and the how.

The Dress – Honestly, I’m not sure if this blue and purple gradient little dress with the pretty scalloped edges is a dress, a swimsuit cover, or what, but I like it a lot. Wear it how you please, this versatile gift is a free gift for Makeover Room group members. In addition to this pretty one-piece version, there is a two piece bikini style top and skirt version. Both are equally cute and equally revealing, especially the skirt. This free Makeover Room group gift from Entice comes in several sizes. To get yours head over to the Makeover Room and join the free-to-join Makeover Room group. The gift is waiting at the entrance to the event space.

Mesh Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass, Belleza (Isis, Freya)

The Pout – Where else but Pout! would have just the right pink lipstick applier?! Pout! has a lipstick applier set as their current group gift (there are past gifts also available for 1 linden). The free “Bubble pop” lipstick set has 5 lip colors in several applier options. The Pout! group is free to join at this time. You’ll find the Pout! group gift to the left as you enter the store.

Siren of the Sea

Siren of the SeaKelpies

Hello There Fab Free’rs! Can you believe it’s the end of the week already?! I know I’m ready for the weekend. I’ve talked before about being drawn to the sea, about having a great love for the water. When I saw this kelpie jewelry set group gift at Vengeful Threads, I might have squealed with delight! Half fish half horse, these mythological creatures are a favorite of mine. What better excuse to fashion my pixel self into a benevolent siren of the sea. The Vengeful Threads group gift is FREE to all group members and the group is FREE to join at this time. The gift includes the gauged kelpie earrings and matching septum piercing.

Tresses Worthy of a Siren

Thanks to Astrid having posted about the Anniversary round of TWE12VE, I decided to check it out for myself. You can take a look at her post featuring a few gifts from the TWE12VE event here. Needless to say I am not at all disappointed in the gifts I picked up. Keeping with the number 12 theme, each vendor has a single gift set out for just 12 lindens. These long pastel locks are a TWE12VE event gift from Firelight Hair. This luscious long hair style from Firelight Hair comes in rigged and unrigged versions, as well as a fit for the bustier ladies. Additionally there is a single color hud with pastel color options.

Opalescent Claws

There is something mythological about the opalescent shimmer of the nail applier gift at TWE12VE by LIVIA. It is really beautiful in person. I can honestly say that even with my usual preference of dark polish, this is my new favorite manicure. The set from LIVIA will work for both fingernails and toenails. The all-in-one hud allows you to pick between 3 variations of this beautiful polish, or use all 3 of them at once. Like all the gifts at the TWE12VE event, this one is just 12 linden.

Appliers Included (all in 1 hud): Maitreya, Slink, Vista, Tuty, Omega

Water Nymph

Water Nymph
Hi There Fab Free I’ve got a Fabulous find to share with you on this Friday. One of the best things about Fridays in Second Life? Why Fifty Linden Fridays, of course! There are lots of great finds every Friday for just 50 lindens. This Friday has some awesome finds, one of which is this stunningly exotic skin from Plastik. You’ll actually find two Fifty Linden Friday sets at Plastik for 50 lindens each today only. One is an outfit set that includes 2 tops and a skirt. While the outfit is beautiful, I was so taken with the Special Edition skin that I just had to share it with you. This FLF offer is a pack that includes this amazing skin in a male and female version along with every applier Plastik makes for their skins, and of course classic system layers. You’ll also find mesh eyes, makeup layers, and nail appliers for both Slink and Maitreya in the package. I felt like a gorgeous creature in this highly detailed skin, and of course, since it’s summer I wanted to be near the water. Remember, this awesome deal is available today only for Fifty Linden Fridy, run! hehe I also included a copy of the vendor photo for the special FLF skin below so you can see both versions, there’s also a list of all appliers included.

For a little extra detail, I also included this beautiful FREE flower crown I found at Color Me Project from Indulge Temptation. I was hoping to play up the fantasy aspect of the skin from Plastik, and I think this detailed accessory did the job perfectly! This FREE gift is available at the Color Me Project landing point. You’ll need to join the Color Me Project group, which is FREE to Join. With this fabulous gift from Indulge Temptation you’ll get a hud that allows you to size the crown and adjust the color of the metal parts only. Color Me Project’s current round ends July 5th, so don’t wait!
