Midnight Madness Is About To Begin

Midnight Madness (April)

Hello Fabulous Readers! Normally on the blog we like to show you freebies on our own avatars that already available, but… I don’t want you to miss out on these very time sensitive 30 FREE offers, so I am breaking the rules a bit!

The Midnight Madness Event which is run by Apple May Designs, is into it’s third monthly round now and it begins tonight (Friday, April 1st) at midnight!  There are 15 stores participating with the prizes being shown in the photo above (borrowed from AMD’s flickr feed – hope they don’t mind ;)).  Each participating store will have one board that will go live at midnight SLT (1500 gift limit) and another that will go live at noon SLT on Saturday, April 2nd.  (1500 gift limit).  Some of the boards will be group only and will be clearly marked.

If you’d like to participate in any of these offers, simply click the following link to view the official event page on the Apple May Designs Blog for store locations, prizes and slurls.

Happy slapping!

Let’s Roleplay!

Let's Roleplay

Astrid showed you some amazing Lady’s gifts from the Tiar mini in-store Easter Egg hunt HERE the other day… but men are not to be left out. If the men-folk head to Tiar there is also an Midnight Mania board out for us to slap with a pretty outstanding prize for male roleplayers.

The board is a low slap rate — only 20 slaps to lock it down. So only 20 individuals will get the prize. This helps guarantee we get the goods, but also means only a few will get it. I contacted the creator and was told that the prize changes out every couple of weeks. It is next up to switch out on April 1st. So if you like the Tiar Stark furs I am modeling in this picture, you’ll want to lock down this board today or tomorrow.

The outfit includes the pants, furred belt, and the shoulder fur. Each comes in all the standard mesh sizes. It’s an outstanding roleplay outfit for the rugged male and will work great in either medieval fantasy, jungle, or gorean settings. Let’s roleplay!

The Homeward Star

The Homeward Star

I think it’s safe to say I love roleplay… AND the Cart Sale! And when I saw Anachron‘s Homeward Star Chitons for only 10L each I was over the moon! There are six amazing colors for you to choose from for only 10L each and they come in all the standard mesh sizes. These are perfect for fantasy settings or even for every day wear if you like. I paired mine with a set of flats but you could go barefoot or put on heels if you wanted.

The Homeward Star 2

And Moon {Hair} has done it again! Hurry, Hurry! Get to Moon and slap that Midnight Mania board! There is a beautiful new hair called la Vie en Rose, this time in pastels on the board. It locks down fast, so don’t delay. It is FREE if you get on the board before it locks and it will be sent to you at midnight. You do need the group tag to slap the board, which will set you back 100L, but the board changes out as frequently as I change hair styles. I can barely keep up! It is SO worth the join fee! And I really love the pretty flowers in this soft and feminine style!

A Functioning Malfunction

Snapshot_003
I know I posted already today but… before all of these fantastic FREE GIFTS are gone, I wanted to tell you about them!

There is a new event called Midnight Madness that runs every first Friday of the month.  This month’s and the very first round was last night and they had a fantastic list of boards to visit, however the boards were malfunctioning.  As a consolation, most of the participants have their gifts priced at 0L today, so you can pick them up if you are quick!

I am showing off the Jewel Sweater & Scarf set that you can pick up at SAKIDE.  This comes with a texture change hud and just happens to match perfect to the Pennsylvania Cognac Boots that Essenz is offering for free!

I am not sure how long these gifts will be up, and they are a list not to be missed!  You’ll find complete houses, home & garden items, hair, boots, clothing and accessories!  Check out THE LIST!

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!

Casual Friday on Monday

Snapshot_001Good evening Fabulouses! Before I head offline for the night, I have a couple of group offers to share with you, and a sweet deal too.

My Teya Jeans and Sweater which are made by Evani, can be found at this round of The Dressing Room for 70L each in a variety of colours.  The knit texturing on the sweater is fantastic and the ripped knees in the jeans are super cool because they come with a texture change hud that allows you to match up your knees with the rest of your body.

N-Core put out these sexy little ankle boots today as a free group gift for their inworld VIPs (50L to join)!  These boots are compatible with Maitreya, Belleza, Slink, TMP and N-Core feet.
Snapshot_002Make sure to swing by Besom and join their free inworld group so that you can give their group midnight mania board a slap.  This Hannu hairstyle is available as a free MM Board prize for group members only in a whole fatpack of colours.  The goal is 360 slaps, which is pretty high – but if we allllll  slap that darn board we’ll lock it down!

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!

Sweet Lies on the Throne

Sweet Lies on the Throne 1

“War was easier than daughters.” [Ned Stark – Game of Thrones]

Daffy’s GadgetMania has decided to participate in the Get To Know Us Hunt and is generously serving up three FREE glorious prizes… this throne called Gift 2-DS-666 Gothic/Gorean Throne being one of the three. It is fit for a king… or a Queen… or a man home from war with too many daughters who needs to relax a little. It has tons of poses built into the main seat and on the sides as well (on the pillows) and against the arms and the entire kit and kaboodle is only 13 prim. For a huge throne this detailed, that’s impressive! And less stressful for Ned Stark than war OR daughters!

Now, prewarning… these three hunt prizes by Daffy’s GadgetMania are FREE… but the hunt is not for the faint of heart. The store is adult themed in a bit of a horror type manner. The hunt itself is based on a series of clues within the store and is a set of steps before the prize reveals itself. If haunted houses or disturbing images are too much for you, this store’s hunt is not for you (I did the rest of the stores on this mini hunt and they were not gruesome, only this one). The prize is worth it, but I don’t want anyone to say “why didn’t you warn me about the blood?!” Well… aren’t many thrones won by a sword, spear, and blood? (At least in Game of Thrones, right?)

Sweet Lies on the Throne 2

“Life is not a song, Sweetling. You may learn that one day to your sorrow.” [Littlefinger to Sansa Stark – Game of Thrones]

You may not decide to sing a song in this lovely toga style dress called Lucrecia Green by Sweet Lies (which comes in the style shown or in a more risky adult style that shows much much more skin) but you’ll look daring and beautiful rather in song or in sorrow while wearing it — whether it be next to the throne or sitting on it.  Better yet, this fabulous get up comes with jewelry included (a necklace, armlets, and anklets) and is FREE by slapping the Midnight Mania board at Sweet Lies. The board requires group membership but that too is FREE, fear not and cry not!

The dress is mesh, comes in all the standard mesh sizes and is perfect for roleplay. The jewelry comes in both scripted and unscripted versions for re-sizing and the scripted versions have an option to remove the script once you are done to save on lag. It’s a sweet deal from Sweet Lies!

Sweet Lies on the Throne 3

“Freedom means making your own choices.” [Daenerys – Game of Thrones]

… and I choose to sit on the throne! At least briefly. And in this lovely little number called Etel by Sweet Lies, which is another FREE offering currently up on the Midnight Mania Boards. Again, you’ll need the group (FREE join) to slap the board, but this Mesh outfit in all the standard sizes with all its included accessories is worth the group space and the time to slap the board. Don’t miss out!

There are six total Midnight Mania boards up if neither of these outfits catch your fancy! Be sure to see if you like any of the others available! I managed to snag and close down 4, but am only showing 2 here. There is also one up for guys!

Sweet Lies on the Throne 4

“You could rattle the stars. You could do anything, if only you dared. And deep down you know it, too. That’s what scares you most.” [Elena – Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas.]

If you are looking for something more queenly, more stately, more fierce… I have just the look for you. In this attire any woman could rattle the stars.

Sweet Lies currently has a gorgeous array of 30L gachas available in-store. I found two that were simply my favorite and paired them together to get this look. The dress is called Tauriel and the detailing is amazing (can you believe this is one of the commons? Imagine the rares!) and for 30L a spin you are getting an amazing deal. These dresses are also fitmesh (swoons).

I paired the dress with a 30L spin on the Savage Spring Armor & Crown Gacha and was granted a Rusty Gold which was a perfect match for my look. For just 30L you get both the pauldrons AND the matching crown in the box (woot! woot!) and you don’t have to spin multiple times to try to match the two like with many gachas. So I simply adored this gacha and this outfit pairing! A deal for sure!

Step Right Up And Enjoy The Show.

awesome stunt show 1

As a young boy, I witnessed a man in a raggedy, sequined outfit jump over a pair of trailers on his dirt bike, much to the delight of the crowd. Years later, here I am on the shoulder of Route 23, promoting the debut of my own daredevil show. I chose to wear a group gift from TentatioN. It is very casual and sporty, but with the camouflage pattern on the cargo pants pockets and in the lower corner of the shirt, it also says, “I am a warrior.” Sometimes, it’s best to let your clothes speak for you (unless they are going to say “I’m a dork”, then there is no reason to give them a megaphone). This, however, says volumes in a positive, masculine manner.  The gift comes with a color change hud, providing four color choices for both the mesh shirt and the pants. TentatioN is not a free group, though. It will set you back 30L, but this outfit in four colors is worth it.

awesome stunt show 2

I grew up in Los Tres Dolores New Mexico , a town named for a mystical formation of three cacti. For my death-defying entry into the world of show business, I will jump over that local landmark in the greatest riding lawnmower jump in the history of mankind! At first glance a lawnmower it may not appear to be the best choice for soaring through the air, but isn’t a riding mower essentially a helicopter that has been flipped upside down? This very detailed (and shockingly fast) mower is the current FREE group gift from Knight Performance. This store along with the one which shares the building with them (Surplus Motors) are great sources for beautifully detailed vehicles in SL. Both stores are free groups and offer many Midnight Manias, group gifts and discounts. If you have any interest in vehicles on Second Life, you should seriously consider joining them.

If you are going to let your clothes do the speaking for you, this Rockabilly Hunt prize jacket from The Dark Fae positively screams, “Rebel.” Its cool stand-up collar and retro styling including a must see graphic on its’ back are perfect for people who don’t follow the rules, like me (even if it’s because I can’t be bothered to read them). The Rebel Soul Jacket sports versions with and without the t-shirt and comes in three sizes, plus an additional two sizes in fitmesh. Cool style is timeless, and this jacket is perfectly cool! This Rockabilly Hunt prize is not free, but at only 2L, it’s a bargain. These jeans are extraordinary as well, coming from a quickly expanding store called Illi. Currently on their Midnight Mania board, these Midnight Open Belt Jeans are nicely textured and look great, and a big surprise was the texture hud that came with them. Illi gives us 8 denim colors, 4 belt colors and 4 metal accent textures for the belt. That is excellent versatility for a free gift! It does carry a small logo, but it is easy to overlook, given the generosity of this Midnight Mania prize. Also worth noting are my mesh white leather sneakers, fresh from the Wayward Hunt. The prize, from the store United Colors, comes in both men’s and ladies’ sizes and with that touch of blue on them they look fantastic for a FREE hunt gift. I was truly impressed!

awesome stunt show 3

Well, I dressed for success and I did everything right but sometimes that just isn’t enough. Sometimes in life the ramp just isn’t high enough, or maybe the wind shifts, or maybe a lawn mower just isn’t meant to fly. A person could drive themselves crazy sitting back and reflecting over those kinds of things, but not me. I am on to my next great adventure and I hope you will be there with me.—–WHC Riler
