19 Years in the Making

19 Years in the Making

I’m back in bold and brights, and I’m in full-on celebration mode!  It’s time to dive into…GASP!  SL19B!

Early Access!

Ok, so it doesn’t actually start until tomorrow, but you can get into the ENORMOUS SL19B early if you join their free group.  You may want to nip in before the crowds get thickety thick!  This year, it’s bigger than ever with 20 whole regions filled to the seams with gorgeous gifts and awesome discounts.  To start off, here’s what I loved on my spin around the place:

  • FREE top by ViSion sized for Reborn, Freya, Kupra, Legacy, Legacy Perky, Maitreya & Maitreya Petite
  • FREE skirt by Stories & Co. sized for Maitreya, Legacy & Hourglass
  • FREE hair by Mina (I didn’t use the HUD to change the colour, so it’s pristine white…but there are rainbow hues to be had!)

There’s really so very much more.  All the gifts are free, and you don’t need a group to get them.

Here’s the list of all 400 participating shops and where to find them:  CLICK

And here’s the group to join to access early:  secondlife:///app/group/8db35111-979b-14a7-6a74-b47be86ce04f/about

Pack a snack, this may take a while!

Squee! All you need to do is head over to TFR Scripted Mesh and give the vendor a click. Once again, there is no group required. Easy Peasy. The floatie has a few poses and rotates for maximum relaxation.

Well, there you have it. Two pool themed freebies, no group joins required, minimal rambling. All good things. /me floats away singing softly about watermelons and sugar.

A Blushing Beauty in M.O.D.A.N

Going to the Chapel

It’s a time of love and elegance. Valentine’s Day approaches and you might find yourself heading over to Frank’s Elite…do you have the right dress? I am a lover of virtual gowns. They range from simple and pretty to big and bossy, and, fortunately, they come in a range of prices.

I set myself the task of finding a pretty gown in my favorite color, blush. M.O.D.A.N was the answer!!! I found this gorgeous Blush Pearl Choker Gown on sale for 75L AND the Anais heels to match for 55L via Glorious Days pricing. Those hot deals were still up Monday, but run quick, ladies, and grab them while they are hot!

Yule Review

Yule Review

Good evening, FabFree. I know I rather don’t look like myself this evening but I had to take advantage of the remarkable new free mesh head available at Bespoke. I don’t often get the pleasure of seeing such high quality accessories coming around for the men of Second Life so I grasped this opportunity with some excitement.

This is the “Yule – Elf” head from Bespoke as I said and you can pick it up for free along with four different colored skins at the mainstore. The head comes with two shapes, one male and one female. Both are very well made as are the skins. Yule also includes:
• BoM Head/Body skin “Wood”
• Rigged eyes, eyelashes, mouth
• 6 eye colors
• AO HUD
• Eyebrow Tattoos (BoM)

I can honestly say I like this head and the shape that comes with it. The shape is not simply a handsome human with pointy ears. The shape and proportions of both head and body are very ‘other’. That said, the head responds fully to the slider system and can be made into your preferred shape easily. I left the shape untouched except for two things. I did make the head to body ratio slightly larger and I made the hands slightly smaller.  Simply personal preference, I would consider this head and shape ready to use ‘right out of the box’.

I did encounter a few minor issues. I felt the eyes did not fit inside the sockets well. They clipped a bit at the corners. However this could easily be changed or tweeked. It didn’t help that I wasn’t 100% happy with the colors of eyes offered but that is purely a personal preference and no bad mark against Bespoke. The other issue I had was the AO. The AO runs through a menu that I felt was a bit clunky. The animations were well done but a bit inconvenient to access. All said, I would not consider any of this a reason to not get this head and enjoy it’s use.

I want to say something about the skins both included and the four extra skins available. These are simply some of the best skins I have encountered in Second Life. They are truly astonishing. The details are both subtle and gorgeous. Even if you decide not to use them with the Yule head they are a stunning addition to your wardrobe.
Yule 2
I am uncertain as to how long the Yule head and the skins will be available but it is described as a “Season’s Gift”. If you would like to get this excellent elfin head and skins don’t delay.

Night at the Museum

Coming Soon

Happy Monday, FabFree! It’s time for a night at the museum and I am stoked. I even brought my little puppy with me. I’ll just have to hide him in my purse to keep him away from the artifacts. I’m sure the pupster and I can sneak in some selfies when the security guards aren’t looking!

Your Shopping List

While I’m at the museum, you can go freebie shopping. Here is a shopping list of the fab finds I have on today:

  • This cute hairstyle is a lucky chair prize for group members of MINA Hair. The MINA Hair VIP group costs 200L to join. This style comes with a blonds colour HUD. 
  • My cute black and red plaid boots are a free gift at the Free Dove at the StephaneL designer booth. They have three amazing pairs of free shoes at the booth. Like all Free Dove gifts, you will need to join the free Free Dove group to get the boots!
  • The beautiful choker I have on is a free gift from Sorumin on the Marketplace. It’s simply outstanding! I do not usually like chokers, but I love how detailed the rose is. There is colour HUD that comes with the choker that allows for a high level of customization (changing colours of the choker, the rose and the metals). 
  • My wicked shorts are by Nerdy Girl, and they only cost 1 Linden on the Marketplace. Nerdy Girl has a load of dollarbies on their Marketplace store so scoop them up. 

Go With the Trend 

The last order of business today is all about Trend. I love this store, and I am more lucky letter prizes from this designer. I am currently wearing the sweet temptation lipstick and the hot eyeshadow. Trend’s group currently costs 250 lindens to join. 

Enjoy, FabFree!

Holo Angel

Holo Angel

Heyya FabFree! Another week is starting up and that means the time when some of our biggest events will be packing up and disappear for another year. Like the Second Life Birthday bash going on till July 6th. It only leaves us a week to do all that shopping and gift getting! So let’s get it going!

Today I found my entire outfit for free at the SLB18 Shop and Hop.  Wings and hair too!  First, my hologram dress is from Salt & Pepper. This is the “Pricilla Dress” and not only do you get the sleek hologram but you in fact … get a whole fatpack! That’s twenty eight solids, patterns and hologram colors! Plus seven metals for the chain. 

My sleek hair style is also a gift from Mina. The unnamed hair is a soft pastel blend of colors that I thought complemented my holo look very well. 

And lastly, my gorgeous wings are from Riot. The “Cupid’s wings SLB18” come in two sizes ( I’m wearing the larger “men’s” size) and two levels of materials. They are rigged some you can’t move them at all. They do slowly wave in and out much like butterfly wings.

All of these gifts are at the respective designers booths at the SLB18 Shop and Hop.

Dress – Salt & Pepper in the Jubilant SIM

Hair – Mina – in the Gilded SIM

Wings – Riot – in the Jubilant SIM
