Looming Moon

Snapshot_004Hi there Fabulous readers!  I have put together another super affordable and mostly free outfit today that I hope you like…  At least like enough to go and pick up some of the pieces that suit your personal style.  I’m going to start with news about the hair, because free hair always seems to be a big hit here at FabFree lol.

You can find the Keene hairstyle that I am wearing today as a free midnight mania board prize at Moon.  This style comes in their essentials pack so it includes a ton of shades from different colour packs, making it a good find no matter what your box number is.  This is the non-group board, so you don’t even need to be in the group to participate – just show up early enough in the day to get in on it before it locks down!

The Jana Skinny Jeans are a new free gift at LOOM that you can pick up after you activate your free inworld group tag.  Maitreya, Belleza, Slink, Fitmesh, and standard mesh sizing are included.

My Ginny Sweater (3L) and Salome Flats (1L) are available as wearable dollarbie demos in the Orange*Pekoe marketplace store.  There is no mention of demo on these items, they are just in the orange*pekoe colours as shown :).

ps. TIP:  I wore the Maitreya version of the Jana Skinny Jeans with the standard mesh size Ginny Sweater, but unfortunately the jeans went through the sweater in a bad way.  I solved this problem by adjusting my shape butt size and saddle bag sliders down until the jeans no longer poked through the sweater.  Make sure you save as…  (something else), not just save or you will have altered your orginal shape.  I use this trick a lot, and I thought someone else might appreciate the idea!

Laundry Day

Snapshot_003Hey there Fabulouses! I hope that you have all had a relaxing weekend and are geared up for the next week :).  As you can see… Sunday is laundry day for me, but it’s ok because it gives me plenty of time to work on a post for you inbetween loads!!

Today I have some Siss Boom news to share with you.  First of all, Lestat of Siss Boom put out these gorgeous mesh boots as a free group gift!  They are called Beautiful Child and are so versatile and pretty too!  I rather like them with jeans, but I can see them looking pretty adorable with a skirt too.   If you’d like these boots in other colours, there are more available instore priced at 220L each.
Snapshot_006The Ragland Paisley Scarf is also a group gift that is available at Siss Boom.  In fact there is a whole bunch of group gifts to pick up, once you join their inworld group.  The fee is currently 500L to join, and while that is on the higher side for a group fee, there are a ton of gifts! *  Note:  This group fee changes often….

While I was at Siss Boom, I picked up the Impromptu Lace Bra & Top  that is available upstairs for just 60L amongst several reduced designs.  Be sure to venture upstairs and check out the sale.
Snapshot_005I have blogged this Moon Tourniquet hairstyle a couple of times already, as I purchased this one a few months back.  It truly is one of my favourite styles, and I am really excited that you all can pick it up in a full fatpack as a free group midnight mania board prize (providing it locks down at midnight).  The Moon inworld group is 100L to join.  There is a non group MM board as well…  I just have to get there early enough in the day to get in on it to show you!

Well, that’s it for me – I hear the dryer buzzer again!

Happy FREE SKIN DAY Gentlemen!

freeskin ab 7ds

Hello everyone and happy Free Skin Day to all you Fabbies out there. First off, an uncomfortable truth for the male avies of Second Life: The default skin that you began Second Life with is definitely in need of immediate replacement. You might not want to fuss around with one, but a skin upgrade could make a world of difference in your SL. Male skins are notoriously expensive, but it is possible to upgrade your skin for FREE or for very little cost. Here are some fantastic possibilities:

A – Seven Deadly s{K}ins – Noah – (FREE Advent Calender Gift / 0L / FREE to join all December)
B – Seven Deadly s{K}ins – Bjorn – (Marketplace Promo Item / 1L )

Seven Deadly s{K}ins is a great place to get skins and easily one of the most generous stores on the grid as far as giving out free gifts to their group members. December is a great time to join their group, as it is FREE all month. The skin shown in picture A is part of their advent promotion and is Noah V1 Caramel. Every day this month, more pieces of this skin package will become available on their advent calendar. The skin is excellent and I can’t wait to see the other pieces of the set. The skin in picture B is Seven Deadly s{K}ins’ 1L marketplace promo skin. It seems there are always promos and discounts going on and with lucky chairs and a midnight mania board as well, this group is an absolute bargain!

C – Tellaq – Monti – (FREE Midnight Mania board / 0L / FREE Group)

Any discussion of quality FREE male skins on SL has to include the fantastic Midnight Mania board at Tellaq. In picture C, I am wearing the current midnight mania board skin Monti with the hairier option and the optional 20% darker skin tone changer. Their skins have a tendency towards the extremely muscular and athletic, and they absolutely excel at darker tones especially. Since this is Tellaq we are talking about, the prize isn’t just a skin but a complete avatar package! The package includes sixteen styles of facial hair and an option for a hairier body on each one. Also included is a shape and some eyes as well, so this really is a full package that you can get for FREE! Join this FREE group and start collecting these skins, There is a good chance you will like Tellaq’s products.

Now for something completely different! Here is a super cool FREE fantasy skin the store JOMO has put out for everyone to enjoy. It comes in a package with eyes and a shape but I opted for my own in picture D. Originally blogged here, this skin is extremely distinctive looking and I was thrilled to add it to my inventory!

freeskin ef 8 ball curves

E – 8 DESIGNE – Male Autumn’15 Group Gift (FREE Group Gift / 0L / FREE Group)

Another great resource when you are looking for FREE Men’s skins is a store called Curves. They have multiple group gifts out in the store right now both FREE and for a nominal fee. The skin I am wearing in picture F is Group Gift-Boys-2-MAY and comes with a shape, although I did decide to use my own for the pic.

Have Two Tastes Of Freedom

untitled Hi there Fabulous Readers!  I was alerted via the B!asta inworld group over the weekend that there was an awesome new free Midnight Mania board prize and of course I ran right down to slap it!  You don’t need to be in their group to take advantage of the offer, just head down there to give it a good slap!  With any luck it will lock down for you and you’ll be sent a two pack of the snazzy Taste of Freedom wool coats in mesh and fitmesh.

I am wearing the taupe/red combo, but as you can see from the ad below – you will also receive the slate/charcoal version too.

Death Becomes Lady Jezebeth in a Den of Spiders

Death Becomes Lady Jezebeth in a Den of Spiders 1

Morticia: [to Gomez] I’m just like any modern woman trying to have it all. Loving husband, a family. It’s just, I wish I had more time to seek out the dark forces and join their hellish crusade. [Morticia Adamms – Character. The Adamms Family Values 1993.]

Ah yes… nothing like classic old school Gothic horror to make your Halloween delightful. Spiders, cobwebs, long straight hair, and tight fitting red gowns — a Gothic beauty has it all. Friendly smiles just are not for her… not when she has the beautifully grotesque to keep her company!

And the Along Came a Spider Hunt and PurpleMoon came through on this deal (as well as a few other designers) on some sweet surprises to make even Morticia Adamms pause in her pursuit of seeking out the dark forces!

Start with a craw over to Lilith’s Den to pick up their 1L Along Came a Spider Hunt Gift — this Along Came a Lloth Theater Stage building set up. It is a mere 25 prim — all decor included. The candles, pictures, table, and rug are each separate pieces and copy-able so you can mix and match to your heart’s content!

Be sure to also drop by to nab this classic dress from PurpleMoon Creations which is fully mesh in all the standard sizes and includes glove appliers for all your mesh body needs (omega, slink, etc.). I love that this dress can pull off a classic Gothic look, but would also be great for the ballroom, Valentine’s day, or any other formal occasion! You can pick up this classic beauty FREE with your Group membership which is a mere 50L to join but comes with regular gifts that are just as lovely as this one.

Death Becomes Lady Jezebeth in a Den of Spiders 2

Morticia: So… you still desire me after all these years? The old ball and chain?
Gomez: Forever!
Morticia: I’ll get them! [Morticia Adamms – Character. The Adamms Family Values 1993.]

Don’t worry, this fabulous skin and hair combination from Lumae and MINA won’t feel like a ball and chain at all!

I wanted to first give you a close up of the two skins available currently as gifts at Lumae. One is a completely FREE group gift courtesy of Lumae and SL free and offers. Join the SL free and offers group for FREE and pick up the gift from the Lumae main store. This one is pictured above and is called Lumae :: Niska – Varda – Death Becomes Her. The second fabulous Halloween skin is called Lumae :: Niska – Varda – Lady Death V2 and is this month’s FREE group gift from Lumae. This group is also FREE to join and the close up of this skin is pictured below.

If you hop over to the Kustom9 Birthday Celebration, for the sweet birthday price of only 9L you can pick up this great Gothic Hair by Mina called Jezebeth in Blood. It comes with a Halloween pallet of colors ranging from black to white with bloody tips. Above, Astrid is sporting it in black.

Death Becomes Lady Jezebeth in a Den of Spiders 3

Morticia: [confronting Debbie in her house] You have gone too far. You have married Fester, you have destroyed his spirit, you have taken him from us. All that I could forgive. But Debbie…
Debbie Jellinsky: What?
Morticia: …pastels? [Morticia Adamms – Character. The Adamms Family Values 1993.]

No! Not pastels! How terrifyingly unforgivable!

But I did want to give you an idea of how versatile the Jezebeth Bloody Halloween color change hud is. So I’ve shown you another color change in the picture above. It does range down to a white with bloody tips as well. It’s a stunning Halloween hair for any bloody occasion (or Gothic party wear).

Death Becomes Lady Jezebeth in a Den of Spiders 4

Morticia: Wednesday, look at all of the other children, their freckles, their bright little eyes, their eager, friendly smiles. Help them. [Morticia Adamms – Character. The Adamms Family Values 1993.]

And help them we will! With one more fabulous gift! Besom is hosting a simply fantastic Midnight Mania board for a lovely hair called Alder which is well worth grabbing before it is gone. The slap rate is high (650) but with the popularity of the store, I had no problem getting the prize. The board closed early for me the day I went over to give it my slap and I had my hair. You can see that the Gothic curly locks were a great compliment to this gown, and the gift is a fatpack — ALL colors included. It is a Group needed midnight Mania Board, but the group is FREE to join, making this a completely FREE gift and well worth stopping by the store to get. Don’t miss out! And take a few friends with you!

Thinking About What You Said to Me

Listen

Hello again Fab Free’rs, happy Monday! Have you been to Entice lately? I have and the outfit on the group Midnight Mania board is sooo cute! I’m usually not one to jump on all the latest trends, but one trendy thing that I am absolutely gaga for is a good chevron pattern. The “Paradise City” dress and jacket combo is a FREE MM board item at Entice, and the dress has a bright blue, white, and yellow chevron style pattern. In addition to this great mesh dress, the outfit includes a fun furry textured jacket in yellow, it’s still a little warm where I am so I left it off, but I know I’ll be happy to have it once the weather gets cooler. The Entice group is FREE to join.

How rad is this hairstyle? I am loving this textured messy yet put-together look from Little Bones. The best part? This is a FREE -for-everyone gift. That’s right, no need to join the group. You’ll find a small gift bag just as you enter the Little Bones store with a fat pack of this style called “Puck” for FREE. Yes, I said fat pack. Don’t delay, I have no idea how long this generous gift will be available.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Swaying Into Summer

Snapshot_006

Good evening Fabulouses ;)  Tonight I bring you news of a couple group gifts I picked up at Sway’s and a sweet summer outfit by Entice that I won in a midnight mania board!

You will need to join the Entice inworld group to access the midnight mania board that delivers the free “Like a Prayer” outfit at midnight if it’s locked down, but the group is free – so it won’t hurt!  This outfit includes a pair of belted denim shorts and the colourful blouse you see me lounging about in.

I put this little summery scene together with the Broken & Unbroken Lawn Chair [Flag] Set that I found as a free group gift at Sway’s.  The chairs come in both broken and unbroken versions and each have several relaxing (and falling – lmao) poses.  These chairs are copy if you need to rez more out for friends.  The Cookie Bear is also a free group gift at Sway’s and was sent out last year, but he’s still available and very cute!  This group is 250L to join and there are a few gifts to snag.

My [Quack] Swim Ring that I am about to toss into the pool can be found in a Sway’s instore gacha machine at 50L per play.

Enjoy your evening!
