Play the Game

Play the Game

Take me out to the ball game, take me out to the… pastel stands and moody outfits?  Sounds like the perfect combination to me, shame I can’t make it happen in RL.  It makes me think of those boomboxes you could get in the 90’s that were those perfect ice cream hues.  Then you’d sit by the radio and wait for your song to come on so you could record it.  Ah, the nostalgia. Anywhos, FREEBIES!

Harajuku Girl

Harajuku is celebrating their 1 year anniversary of eventhood!  That means there are all sorts of goodies by the stalls there, and I do love love love putting together an ensemble with event findings.  It is one of my fave pastimes for reals.  Here’s what I picked up:

  • 1L shirt by TNK (no size is mentioned, but it works on my Maitreya body with a bit of alpha work!)
  • FREE Lollipop by Besha with bento hold
  • FREE Star blush by Gloom with appliers for Catwa, Genus and Omega

There are loads of other gifts too, no group join required, just pay the vendors (most gifts are free!)

The Truth is Out There

Also, while I wasn’t looking, Truth snuck out a new group gift.  Some of my friends didn’t know either as it seems like the notification got lost in the shuffle for some people.  Check in group notices, and you’ll find this really versatile bob in a full fatpack of colours with styling options too.  It has the hairbase attached as well, which gives it a very realistic look that I love.  The Truth group is 350L to join, but you know you’re getting regular awesome hairstyles, so totally and utterly worth the join fee.  Go grab it!

Is there some form of sporting event going on?

Pastel Ice Cream

Pastel Ice Cream

Another magical element of summer that I enjoy all too much is the plethora of frozen treats you can get!  It seems to me that ice cream is no longer just a thing you have on its own, but a crazy amalgam of as many sweet things as one can stuff into a small container.  I’m not complaining about the craziness of today’s ice cream, on the contrary…I say bring it on and why not dress just as sweet to match?

Feeling Lucky

There are new lucky boards for the month of July over at Safira!  5 cute outfits (plus the 5 that went up last month) that are all sorts of adorable!  I got this two piece look while hanging out there, and you must admit that it’s really sweet.  I like a good pleated skirt, and if it’s turquoise I surely can’t complain!  To get yours, just join the Safira group for 50L and then wait for your letter to come up.  There are loads and loads of great gifts to pick up while you’re there too!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya

Magical Beret

I told you all yesterday about the free gifts over at The Crystal Heart Academy, but I had one more thing I really wanted to show you that I picked up while I was there weaving my way through the magic wands and sparkles.  This hat and hair by Ayashi is simply divine, don’t you think? It just makes me super happy.  It’s completely free, no group join required over at the event, and you can wear it with or without the hat.  It comes in several hair colours as well as a super useful HUD to change the hat colour.  Cuteness overload!

Geez, this ice cream is so tasty!

Japanimation

Japanimation

I have always had the dream to take a trip to Japan and do all sorts of ridiculous things like buy nonsensical t-shirts, go to weird cat cafes and eat copious amounts of sushi.  My dress today has inspired me to go in a bit of a kawaii direction, not sure I pulled it off completely but, let’s just say I feel like I should be mastering chopsticks any second now.

A Pop of Colour

Ok, so maybe this dress from Quinnty’s has more than just a little pop of colour, but it makes me think of all the cool hot pink and green things I used to wear way back in the late 80’s.  Good times.  This dress comes in three little parts, the main bit I’m showing you, with an optional bolero you can wear as well as a little modesty patch to keep eyes from peering where you don’t want them to!  You can get yours by joining the Quinnty’s group for 50L.  There are a wholeeee bunch of other fun gifts there too, so make sure you take a look!

Sizes

  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Physique

Now where were these promised mounds of sushi?

In Between the Lines

In Between the Lines

You remember when you would read fashion magazines as a teen, and they always contained some form of quiz?  You know, like the type that told you what kind of guy was for you?  Well, I’d always do the ones that told you which style was yours, and annoyingly each time I would land somewhere in the middle of three categories.  Something like, one third rocker, one third boho and one third sporty.  I dunno if there was something wrong with my programming back then, or maybe I was catching on early to the fact that it’s really ok to switch it up!  Today, I’m feeling just a little rough and tough, though tomorrow I may show up in frills!  You just never know…

Syndicate Sunday Time!

Syndicate Sunday has rolled around again, and there are loads of great deals going on all over the grid.  Syndicate Sunday takes place during the week after the first Sunday of every month, and you’ll find loads of goodies priced at just 69 Lindens in some of your favourite stores!  I made my way over to Psycho Barbie and found this insanely awesome bomber jacket (I love the fact that it falls off the shoulders, and it happens to come with a fairly extensive HUD) for just 69 Lindens.  I also nipped by Astara and got these great celestial earrings for 69L as well.  There are lots of other goodies in participating stores, just check out the event’s website to figure out what you just can’t live without!

Jacket Sizes

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • Venus

Here’s to the misfits!

The Hunt for Freezies

The Hunt for Freezies

Here comes the weekend Fab Free!  I’m dreaming about summer days when you can just listen to music and troll the neighbourhood to buy freezies and chew gum.  You know what I’m saying?

Fab and Always Free

I found this super versatile and cute top at Sweet Willows through the Fab Free Group, of course!  If you join our inworld group for free you get access to a whole mass of awesome gifts, including this one from Sweet Willows!  It comes with an HUD to change to a bunch of different textures full of awesomeness.  Loads of options there!

Sizes

  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Voluptuous

Short but Sweet

The perfect skirt to go with my top (also perfect for summer neighbourhood trolling, of course) was yet another free group gift over at Egoxentrikax.  I joined the MLM Free & Offers group for free and got this cute skirt out of it!  Can’t say no to that, can you?

Sizes

  • Altamura
  • Freya
  • Isis

Pretty Psycho

Pretty Psycho
Hi and welcome back to the blog Fab Free’rs! I’m here on this marvelous Monday with a quickie post featuring two of the more recent group gifts at Cureless. I think it’s always interesting to see what the designer at Cureless comes up with. The items are usually leaning toward the creepy side while still remaining cute. I picked up a set of eyes, and a set of cropped tops from the pile of currently available group gifts. Also there are 3 lucky letter chairs at Cureless directly across from the group gifts. At this time the Cureless group is 50 linden to join.
CURELESS[+] Spookshow Eyes / GROUP GIFT!The Eyes – The group gift eyes at Cureless definitely fall into the category of “creepy kawaii.” The set includes mesh eyes, and appliers that will work with Catwa or Omega compatible mesh eyes. These spooky eyes all have a pale blue iris, and different pupil options. My favorites are the star shaped pupil and the cat-eye shaped pupil. You can also mix and match them like Pru has done.

CURELESS[+] Skelly Tops / Group GiftThe Top – This skeleton cropped top is also a group gift at Cureless. The top comes in two sizes, and four variations. There is the white skeleton version shown, a plain white top, a black skeleton version, and a plain black version.
Sizes Included: Slink Petite, Maitreya Lara

Here are the details, enjoy!

Hair – Clawtooth: Rose (19: Magic Pack)

Head – CATWA HEAD Koura Bento

Skin –  Essences – Blake – Currently @Kustom 9

Walking on Sunshine

Walking on sunshine

Just a little bit out of practice.

Gotta admit, this holiday season has left me a little rusty when it comes to rooting out those bargains. For a while I had contemplated on training my new polar bear cub (he still needs a name) in the fine art of sniffing out great deals a la Ripley but after fifteen minutes of watching him attempt to dig out the carpet, the thought of turning him loose in a store became a Very Bad Idea. Thankfully, I soon remembered a safer alternative and was soon turning to the Second Life Marketplace. Personally, I’ve always found the Marketplace easy to navigate (no lag or misbehaving polar bears a bonus!) ending this most recent jaunt with a cart loaded with goodies.

Stepping into the sunshine.

One of the things picked up was this free sweater dress from Tuty’s. I guess I was in the mood for something simple as I immediately fell in love with the sleek cut of this dress. With the weather being so odd lately, I didn’t want to chance catching a flu and so appreciated this snug long-sleeved dress and it’s comfortable jersey material even more. The sweater dress comes with a boat load of sizes including the five standard mesh sizes (XS-XL) as well as alternate sizes for avvies with smaller chests or curvier bodies. If you’re still worried about the sizing there’s also a nifty alpha layer provided to stop bits from poking through. To sweeten the pot, the sweater dress also comes with a hud that allows you to switch between fourteen different colors. I spent way too long trying to decide on which color to showcase but settled on orange because it’s been too drab and dreary on my little plot of Second Life recently. Snow is all well and good but I think I’m well and truly ready for Spring and the sunshine.

Unusual headgear.

I’ve been in a bit of a headgear kick recently. Beanies and caps mostly as sunhats will have to wait (grrr) but in the virtual world, I would be remiss not to stretch this theme out to the more unusual. This isn’t the first time I’ve seen horns sold on the marketplace but when I saw these on offer at Ninety I snapped them up right away. For just 1L, you’ll not only get a great set of horns but also a hud that controls the colors of each flower on the ring of flowers at the base of each horn. There are eight colors to choose from so go crazy experimenting with all the different combinations that are possible. The flowers really remind me of Spring and I just can’t wait for the season to get here already! The hud provided also lets you control the color metals on the horns (choice of gold or silver) and there is also an easy to use resize script so that you can customize your horns to your heart’s content. And that’s a wrap for my Marketplace shopping adventures. The January work rush has certainly left me floored as it’s been busier than I’ve previously anticipated (-shakes a stick at RL-) but hopefully, I’ll be able to recover some of my freebie game soon. Catch you on the flip side guys!
