Beldam Haunt

It’s rare for me to envision something and then have the ability to manifest what I see in my mind with the tools at my disposal. Death Row Designs and Roawenwood gifted me the ability to really create the sort of diabolical yet romantic scene I had floating around in my imagination. So if this reads like a heartfelt thank you, it’s exactly that. I’ll always be inspired by and grateful for designers who give gifts that are beautifully detailed and thoughtfully made.

Death Row Designs 

I’ve always enjoyed the juxtaposition of the beautiful with the horrific. It’s easy to believe something ugly is sinister, but what of something or someone truly stunning? I find it thrilling in story telling to consider that under a lovely façade lies something malevolent. Death Row Designs often embodies this motif, gorgeous “ruined” things. They have three such things as their free October group gifts, and a fourth group gift that I didn’t show in my photo but is in the vendor ad below. There’s a broken and blood-drenched china tea set, a beautiful set of fall décor that includes a shelf with tchotchke and a silver mirror, and lastly a haunting wall lantern hanging from the fingers of a devilish outstretched arm. The Death Row Designs group is free to join.

FOUR New Group Gifts Now at DRD!!

Roawenwood

I’ve always felt that Roawenwood often has an inkling of darkness to their furnishings. Nothing too wicked, but just dark enough to be alluring. They have a lovely macabre chair and foot-stool set complete with a display ouija board, and drippy candle with darkly romantic red roses and human skull. The furniture itself has a deep purple-blue color, and a texture that makes me think of velour. There’s also a throw blanket over the stool that has gold-like flecks in it. The “Spirit Board Chair Set” is Roawenwood’s free hunt prize for the Fallen Gods Prophecy Hunt. Please click or copy the link below for the ins and outs of the hunt, including hints, and gift previews.

In My House

In My Home

Hey Fab Free! I have a few really cool freebies to show you, which is almost everything in this photo except for my hair. Let’s start with the decor, and then move on to my outfit after.

Hip Decor

This great wall tapestry is amazing, and a free gift at Petite Mort. It’s called the “Compassion tapestry” and it’s branded with a number of slogans about human rights and social issues. It works perfect in my living room, so I was quite pleased with this gift! No group is needed for this gift, just buy it for 0L on the gift shelf at Petite Mort.

I am also showing a couple of free stay at home club gifts by Rune Creation, including this funky chair and the camo rug. There are a whole wall of free stay at home gifts, so collect them up while you still can.

The Outfit

The top I have on is another free gift at Petite Mort, which you can also get for 0 Linden.  You can’t see it very clearly in my photo, but it says “Black Lives Matter” on it and it fits perfect. I love it, plus is goes with my new banner perfectly. The skirt, which I simply adore, is currently a free lucky letter prize at Oubliette, the partner store of Petite Mort, which needs the free group to win.

Sizes included (Top & Skirt):

Back to Your Roots

Back to Your Roots

Back before I blogged for Fab Free, I was sure I had a very distinct and settled style.  I loved dark, gothy things and I had a special place in my heart for pastel goth.  I mean, I still do!  But when you become a blogger, you have a tendency to forget your personal style for the greater good and in order to “sell the garment, sweetie!”.  But now and then I come across a cute item to blog that brings me back to my fashion roots faster than you can say “dark and brooding”!

Feeling Lucky

There are new lucky boards at Oubliette!  There are four different items up on the boards right now, and right now I’m showing off two.  The peekaboo (very peekaboo…) lace skull dress is so appealing that I knew I had to wear it.  Of course, I added some pasties for modesty – but it is quiiiite see-through.  I also grabbed the underwear there too, which feature a very nice touch of lacing up the sides.  The two items go very nicely together, I think, but they can also be worn separately.  To gain access to these cute and creepy items, just join the Petite Mort & Oubliette group for free, then wait for your letter to come up!  While you’re at it, you could check the lucky boards across the sim at Petite Mort which are new too.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya

  • Venus
  • TMP (panties only)
  • XXS – L with an alpha layer (panties only)

Happy Haunting!

Gardening Gals

Gardening Gals

It’s officially Summer now, and that means that it’s time to dig in and get some planting done.  Me and Pru and ready for a bit of planting and gossiping, which will clearly be followed by some lemonade on the porch.   We’re getting in touch with nature again!  Hooray for the summertime!

Which Wood?

Witchwood (aka Oubliette and Petite Mort) are back on the hunting circuit with their very own Summer Festival hunt!  It’s filled with lovely summery, slightly boho outfits that will have you feeling like you’re in touch with nature before you know it!  The items are all priced from 10 – 20L and can be mixed and matched very nicely.  You can see which items Pru and I have got on in the credits below, and I’ve added the hunt key so you can see what’s on offer!  The Summer Festival hunt at Witchwood is running until July 5th!

  • Hourglass

Home Sweet Home

The lovely house Pru and I are hanging out in front of is the latest Stay at Home Club gift from Trompe L’Oeil!  To get it, just head over to their landing point and pay 0L.  The chairs on the front porch are also available for free there, and they look so inviting that I don’t know how much gardening we two will get done in the end!  As we often say in SL…you can never have too many houses!  And when they’re free…one just can’t resist!

Study Time

Study Time

Hi Fab Free’rs, I don’t know about you, but I think coffee or cocoa and doughnuts are a required part of study-time. I also think that comfort is paramount. I like to study in my pajamas, sitting in my bed, or a comfy chair, and have sweet eats at my immediate disposal. lol Poor Herman, haha, he likes to see how close he can get to the doughnuts without actually eating them. Though if I don’t keep an eye on him he’ll sneak one and run off with it! That said, I better drink this coffee before it gets cold!

For this late-night study session I picked up the Fab Free group gifts from Sweet Willows and Partners in Crime. I also snagged the School Days Lucky Letter Board prize at Tentacio, and the free Stay at Home Club gift at LovelySweet. Keep reading and I’ll tell you the how and where of each of these fabulous freebies.

Sweet Willows 

I don’t care how old I get, I’ll never be too old for cute pajamas. This unicorn themed set is the free Fabulously Free in SL group gift by Sweet Willows. The Fab Free group is of course free to join. In this gift you’ll get the tank and matching panties with a texture change hud that has 6 prints, and 4 solids to choose from.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Belleza Freya

Partners in Crime

The adorably sweet coffee and doughnuts set is the Fabulously Free in SL group gift at Partners in Crime. As I mentioned before, the Fab Free group is free to join. The “Little Coffee Break” set is a decor item that can be resized manually. The objects can also be unlinked and rearranged. However, be sure to make a copy first just in case!

Tentacio 

There are 4 Lucky Letter boards at Tentacio that do not require a group tag to participate. I picked up the “School Day” set for free from one of the Lucky Letter boards at Tentacio. This cute decor set includes the school uniform on a stand, which has a color change hud for the skirt and tie, an open school bag with books and pencils spilling out.

LovelySweet

Finally, the pose used along with the glasses, and book prop (the book in my photo is not the one included in the set) are from the free Stay at Home Club gift at LovelySweet. There are 4 total poses each with props in the “Introverting” bento pose set by LovelySweet. No need to join a group for this free gift.

Stay at Home Club- GIFT!

Swimsuit Season

Swimsuit Season

Swimsuit season appears to have happened suddenly as if summoned overnight. Then again, perhaps it’s just me and it’s been arriving just as it always does and I’ve simply forgotten to notice. I’m happy it’s here either way. For the first time in ages I find I am excited about the sunshine, eager to spend time outdoors, rather than dreading the heat. Summer is here, and we can always find ways to cool off. Speaking of which, I found two group gifts to help with cooling off as the temperatures rise in my part of the world. I picked up a cute swimsuit set from Mimikri, and a delicious looking citrus treat from Andika. I also snagged a summery floral tattoo at Dappa. Keep reading and I’ll dish about each of these fabulous group gifts, and of course list the credits at the end. Stay cool my friends, it’s swimsuit season.

Mimikri

Even with the join fee of 100 linden, I couldn’t resist this group gift bikini and swimsuit cover at Mimikri. To my delight it was worth every bit of the fee. The floral print bikini is pretty and the sheer swimsuit cover gives the set an almost elegant look. The pieces can be worn separately. and comes in the colors shown.

Sizes Included: Maitreya  Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Legacy

Andika

Citrus treats are a favorite of mine, especially in summer. This frozen lime confection is a free group gift at Andika. The highly detailed display acts as a dispenser also. It will auto attach a spoon and a held version of the ice cream treat via touch menu. The held items have a bento hold and eating animation. The Andika group is free to join.

Dappa

This delicate floral upper body tattoo is a free group gift as well. It comes from Dappa, and it includes system/BOM layers and several applier options. Each gives the choice of a fresh or faded look. The Dappa group is free to join at this time, and there is more than one group gift available. Along with this beautiful floral tattoo, there are a few male/unisex tattoos. Don’t miss them!

Appliers Included: Signature, Omega, Slink, Maitreya, Legacy, Belleza *BOM/Classic System Layers also included

Peace and Love

Peace and Love

I love a  good hunt.  I also love a good Boho hunt!  With all this time on our hands, I’m digging right into all the fun that SL has to offer while throwing up peace signs and donning as many flower crowns as I possibly can.  Let’s let the chill boho vibe reign over us as much as possible!

In the Witchwood

Petite Mort & Oubliette are hosting a hunt for Spring over at the Witchwood sim.  So many great items to choose from that I knew I just had to have them all.  Every piece is priced between 10 and 20L so you’ll be able to put together some cute looks without breaking the bank.  The items I’m showing are as follows:

  • 10L Floral Wreath
  • 10L Glasses
  • 10L Shorts sized for Freya, Hourglass, Isis, Maitreya, Physique & Venus
  • 20L Tee sized for Freya, Hourglass, Isis, Maitreya, Physique & Venus

Just search high and low throughout the sim and you’re sure to find those little eggs all over the place!  You’ve got until April 11th!

Enjoy!

Hey there Fab Free’rs! I know it’s been a minute since my last post, 2020 has got me jumping through hoops already. Even so, it’s good to be here. For this post I played the Oubliette gacha machine at Gachaland. It’s just 50 linden per play for this fairy-like goth outfit, and there’s an event exclusive color available. I’ll add a vendor photo below so you can get a look at each of the pieces to the set.
