Remembering Pool Halls

Pool Shark

It’s been a while.

It’s been a while since I played pool. I miss those days. There isn’t a pool hall in my little town, and I’d have to drive a long distance to find one now. The atmosphere has changed as well. Pool tables are something you find only in bars where I live. When I was in college you could go to pool halls just to play pool, and they were places that were fairly neutral and welcome to all sorts of people.

I found Warehouse 999 and it made me remember a bit of the old days of pool halls. It’s a club that caters to both military (and non military) music lovers, with a pool table in the background. There’s a lot of quaint memorabilia up and if you like the blues, stop by for a listen.

Grabbing the right outfit.

FA Creations has out a great free December group gift… this Yuki outfit. The jacket includes a texture change hud with 6 possible choices and the outfit is made for both standard or mesh bodies. You’ll get the pants as well as the top and jacket as separates.

In the gift you’ll get sizes to fit:

  • Standard mesh sizes XS – XL
  • Fitmesh Sizes XS – XL
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • TMP
  • Belleza

Top it off.

I needed a finishing touch and found just what I was looking for in the Women Only Hunt 2. I picked up this free mesh rigged metal choker in gold at Secrets. This choker is pretty special in that it doesn’t clip. The mesh rigging lets it move with your neck so there is no issue of it cutting out the side of your neck with your avatar’s ao. I really like that. Plus its really stylish. Perfect for playing pool.

Inside My Skull

Inside My Skull (Shirt)

Gotta Love Events…

Kathryn pointed me toward the Boho Culture Fair, and said that there were gifts to be had. These events are always a fantastic place to pick up gifts, but sometimes it can be hard to find items for us menfolk at them. I was pleasantly surprised when she pointed me in the direction of the Trashed booth, which had out a gift for both women AND men.

You’re Not the Costume Type?

Personally I love the Fall season as well as Halloween, but dressing up in a costume is just not on my agenda. So when I saw the 1L gift from Trashed for men, I was really thrilled. Trashed has out this skull decorated shirt. It is one piece mesh but has the appearance of being a long sleeve white t-shirt with a short sleeve black t-shirt overlay. The great thing about it is that it you’ll be able to wear it after Halloween too, since it could easily pass as “Biker” or “Gothic” with no problem.

Don’t Miss Out!

You’ll want to pick up this gift from Trashed (it comes in all the standard mesh sizes and includes it’s own alpha layer) before November 4th. That’s when the Boho Culture Fair ends. While you’re there, be sure to check out the other booths, there are lots of gifts and goodies to be had from many outstanding designers!

A Gypsy’s Tale

A Gypsy's Tale

Hello FabFree! I’m back again today with a few more goodies! I wanted to show you a lucky letter prize I picked up at PoshTale. I really love PoshTale clothing. It’s wonderfully versatile… working well as either modern attire or as roleplay outfits. My top is a perfect example. This Kasai Fringe Top is a FREE lucky letter board prize at PoshTale right now and would work well for either genre. No group is required, just some luck!

This is an applier top and includes appliers for Maitreya, Belleza, Slink, TMP, and Omega. You also get two color huds for each. The plain and patterned hud each offer 8 color choices, for a total of 16 different tops with this one applier. If this top doesn’t suit you, there are 3 other lucky letter boards currently at PoshTale for you to try your luck at.

My hair is a FREE SLB13 gift from Hairology. We’ve been showing you lots of pretty hair gifts from Hairology… this one is called “Unity” by Damselfly, and like all the other SLB13 gifts won’t cost you a single Linden. It comes in two sizes (one is to fit larger busts) and is a full fatpack of colors.

A Gypsy's Tale 2

A part of me has always been a bit of a Gypsy at heart… and perhaps that is why I love this gift from Cellar Door so much. I picked it up as part of the SLB13 celebrations at We❤ RP and it is yours FREE once you go to the Cellar Door booth there and click the cake and get your slice for your FREE gift. The box includes the necklace I am showing you, which is the rose gold color, as well as the necklace in black, bronze, gold, and silver.

I also picked up the Kunglers SLB13 gift while I was at We❤ RP. It is a really elaborate and beautiful pair of earrings called Eliza Leaf. They are shaped like leaves and are embedded with small opals and have rose quartz wired to the tops of the metal leaves. They are really beautiful. This is a FREE gift that you won’t want to miss.

If you are a photographer in Second life and you liked my poses for this post, consider stopping by the Cart Wash Sale where you can pick up several very nice poses. My poses are by Picture Perfect. The Cart has single poses, couple poses, and even a group pose… all for only 10L each!

Oki Aquarius

Oki Aquarius

The Runway Perfect Hunt ends May 31st, so there is still some time for hunters to make some last minute stops before this hunt is over. If you stop by Prism Designs, they are offering two gifts for this 5L Hunt — one for the ladies and one for the gents. In the picture above I’m showing you the men’s gift… the Oki Jacket and Oki Shorts.

This outfit will only cost you 5L and a little hunting time, and you’ll get all the standard mesh sizes. It’s worth adding to your wardrobe for casual wear.

I also wanted to show you another pretty hunt item from the Medieval Fantasy Hunt XV. I stopped by Acios along the Blessing Path and picked up the FREE hunt gift… this dainty necklace with its healer symbol on a blue disk. This would be perfect for someone who roleplayed a healer in a medieval roleplay sim. Acios is also giving away a Curse path gift FREE as well, which is equally nice… another necklace in a fiery red. It too is well worth hunting for!

Enjoy the rest of your evening!

Garden Swank

Garden Swank

I managed to beat Astrid to the Swank Event! And scored a great FREE men’s gift in the process. This really amazing Baka Jacket for men (it comes in all the standard mesh sizes) by Bakaboo is a FREE gift (no group required) at the current round of Swank. Several designers are giving gifts at their booths for both guys and gals, so this event is well worth visiting.

I’m sure Astrid will want to head there later now that I’ve broken the ice…

Don’t be shy… go get your Swank on!

Be Mine… Even In April

Be Mine... Even In April

When you need something to unwind in at the end of the day, House of Ruby has the perfect duo — matching guy’s briefs and lady’s lingerie. This set is yours FREE as a subscribo gift if you stop by the main-store and click the subscriber. In the box you’ll find a system layer of men’s briefs as well as men’s appliers for slink men’s mesh bodies and an omega applier as well. For ladies you’ll find Slink and Omega appliers for mesh bodies (there are no system layers for ladies).

Loki stopped by Legal Insanity and picked up the February group gift which is FREE and still out. It is this dual set of men’s and lady’s “Be Mine” necklaces. The gift includes both a copy/no transfer version and a no copy/transfer version of the men’s and lady’s style each. That means that rather you are a guy or a gal, if you pick up the gift, you’ll have one for yourself and one to give as a gift to someone else! Better yet, the 99L group gift fee is made well worth your Linden… there is an entire wall filled with lady’s and men’s past gifts, varying from clothing in different seasons to jewelry, all still available for just 1L each with your Legal Insanity group tag!

Be Your Queen

Be Your Queen

The Femboy Hunt really captured my interest, as it features some terrific creators and beautiful prizes. I found that while creators were offering prizes that are geared toward the femboy demographic, several work great for us gals as well!

I took a stop by !Majestic! main-store and picked up the 2L Femboy Hunt prize there and was rewarded with this gorgeous Surprise Bitch Robe. The robe comes in two colors — the animal print shown, as well as a red that is not shown. The robe comes in all the standard mesh sizes as well as fitmesh. It is suitable for both female and femboy avatars. I did add on my Maitreya panties to make it suitable for sharing with you here on FabFree😉 .

I took a quick look around the store and discovered that !Majestic! also had out a really fun and beautifully made FREE group gift as well! This Be My Queen headphone/crown set is FREE with your  FREE group membership and is a jewel fit for any queen! The details on it are superb!

Show Your Pride

Show Your Pride 2

One of the best things about Second Life is the diversity… and April marks the start of the Femboy Hunt. There are quite a few stores in Second life which are friendly to Femboy and LBGT fashion, one of which is Brocade Tiger. For this hunt in particular, Brocade Tiger is featuring a 2L gift that is not to be missed… these “Pride Blue Jeans” with their rainbow look and bedazzled back pockets. For just 2L and a little hunting time, these quality mesh jeans in all the standard sizes are well worth picking up. They even include a fantastic attached rainbow mesh belt.

Show Your Pride

I figured Astrid wouldn’t be happy unless I showed a little more pride than just the jeans… so I scoured the marketplace and looked for some proper jewelry, and managed to find a reasonably priced necklace at C3. You can get their Gay Pride Necklace for just 10L. I did find that though the marketing says it is unisex it required a bit of editing to get it to fit a male form. It wasn’t difficult with a bit of patience, though, as the shape of the cord is well done.

I’m out for now… but I’ve got my rainbow on! Show your pride too if you are so inclined with these fantastic items.
