Rainbow Goth

Fantasy Goth
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! It’s been one of those days IRL and I’m thankful that I have my SL to escape to! I’m also super glad you’re here and I get to share some cool Goth Garage Sale Hunt finds with you. This hunt definitely caters to the gothic, wicked, and witchy among us (as the name would suggest). Pru is living out one of my goth/rockabilly fashion fantasies with this look. The GGS Hunt is a 5 linden hunt, meaning each prize is 5 linden. This hunt is taking place at the Goth Garage Sale event. The item you’ll be hunting for is a little black kitty with glowing yellow eyes. Some of the participating vendors have hidden their hunt item within their store booth. Some vendors also have their hunt item hidden on the even grounds near their booth. It was my experience that most items were “hidden in plain sight.” So keep an eye out for those glowing yellow eyes!

The Hair – I think this hairstyle from EscalateD is so fun. It’s a little bit pin-up, a little bit punk-rock, and a whole lot of fun! It is EscalateD’s 5 linden Goth Garage Sale Hunt prize. The style comes with a cool dip dye hud with dark hair that has several brightly colored “dips.” There is also a color change hud for the hair bow.

The Necklace – The Little Bat has this beautiful necklace for their Goth Garage Sale Hunt prize. Purchase their hunt prize and you will receive the neck;ace and a texture/color change hud. The hud has 14 gemstone colors to choose from. The necklace also has resize scripts.

The Septum Piercing – This simple captive bead nose ring is one of two Goth Garage Sale Hunt prizes from Astara. This silver version is just 5 linden and it includes a color change hud for the captive bead. The other Goth Garage Sale Hunt prize from Astara is the same piercing in gold.

The Pillows – These cute pillows are the OOPS Goth Garage Sale Hunt prize. For just 5 linden you get a set of unscripted decorative pillows, and a hold-able version. The hold-able version has a texture change hud so you can choose which version of the pillow you want. The decorative pillows can be manually sized.

The Dress – The mid-thigh length dress Pru is wearing is the Goth Garage Sale Hunt prize by WitchCraft. The dress includes a color/texture change hud with 3 different variations of this geometric galaxy print. This 5L prize comes in sizes to fit Maitreya Lara, Slink Physique, Slink Hourglass, and eBody.

The Nails – The intentionally chippy manicure Pru has is from the Goth Garage Sale Hunt prize by Dark Passions. This “Koffin” nails hud gives you 6 vampy pastel polish shades in a chipped or solid option. The appliers will work for fingernails as well as toenails. There is a Slink applier, a Maitreya applier, and an Omega applier included.

Here are the details, enjoy!

Tattoo’d Pin-Up Designer Circle Style

DC5 Gifts
I have to say, Calle really got me with this corseted one-piece by Ashmoot. Earlier this week Calle clued me in to the fantastic 5th Anniversary of Designer Circle. To celebrate their 5th year running, the participants in this round of Designer Circle have placed out a FREE gift! The 5th Anniversary round of Designer Circle ends on 19th, so don’t wait.

This cute corseted black and gold one-piece is the FREE Designer Circle 5th Anniversary gift from Ashmoot that Calle told me she thought I’d like, and she was absolutely right! I truly am a sucker for the pin-up style. This flirty gift comes in classic system layers, and appliers for most mesh bodies. In addition there are little mesh bows and frills to add a little extra dimension and cuteness.

My personal pin-up style always includes tattoos. Queen of Ink put out this really beautiful traditional style full-body tattoo as their FREE gift at Designer Circle. Queen of Ink is a new-to-me shop and I really like what I see in this gift. The freebie includes classic system tattoo layers an Omega applier, as well as body appliers for most major mesh bodies. If you enjoy tattoos the way I do, you’ll want to pick this one up!

Indulge Temptation is also participating in this 5th Anniversary round of Designer Circle. Their FREE gift is this lovely set of rose bangles. There are 3 variations, each with 3 roses. Also included is a color-change/re-size hud that allows you to adjust the size of the bangles, the color of the metal, and the color of the roses. These super pretty bracelets would look great with just about anything, casual or dressy.

Finally, the pose shown with the star floating up from Pru’s palm is also a FREE Designer Circle 5th Anniversary gift from Icons of Style. When I saw this I knew I had to share it. The pose and the bright little star make me think of those vintage pin-up post cards you still see from time to time. Yet another too cute to pass up gift!

Goodbye to Sandra D.

Sandra

Hello Fab Free! For those celebrating Memorial Day this weekend, I hope you have some lovely weather. One of the great things about Second Life is the rain can’t ruin the party.  Speaking of parties, I feel ready for a retro sock-hop in this fantastically adorable group group gift at Knockers.

The Knockers group is 150 lindens to join, and this fully mesh group gift dress and matching jacket are well worth the effort. This mesh dress can be worn with or without the matching mesh jacket. I think the jacket would be equally cute with jeans, and y0u’ve gotta love the iconic poodle decal on the skirt as well as the back of the jacket. Both items come in standard mesh sizes with matching alpha layers. The dress has appliers for Lolas Tango and Mirage.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

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.

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!

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

Rockabilly Derby Girl

Rockabilly Derby Girl

This Rockabilly Roller Derby Girl put away her knee pads in exchange for a dress, but couldn’t bare to be without skates!

Luckily, thanks to REIGN, she didn’t have to! In a recent group notice, REIGN sent out these to-die-for cute “Derby Heels” as a group gift. The shoes are a striking pair of black high heels with a unique set of custom skate wheels. Not only do they look cool, they act cool too. These Derby Heels are animated with a derby-style skating animation that kicks in when you move around. There is also a second set that were sent out in a separate group notice that are without any animations so you can use your own skate AO with them if you so desire. These sexy cool heels include compatible versions for Slink High Feet, TMP Ouch Feet, Belleza Feet, and Maitreya Feet.

I’ll admit, when I first saw the shoes from REIGN I was worried I might have trouble finding something awesome to go with them. I was so wrong! This cute cheetah print dress is the most recent FREE Subscribo gift from BYRNE. The dress comes in two versions, the other being a white version. Along with a daring slit up the side, this animal print dress has a pretty metallic shine in certain lighting, which makes it all the prettier on. Why a cheetah print dress goes so well with roller-heels? I have no idea, but I love the look! All you have to do is teleport over to BYRNE  and slap that Subscribo and the dresses are yours.

To add a pop of color to my rockin’ outfit, I picked up the new gift from NSP Florals out at Fab Free Headquarters. The lovely rose choker and matching hair flower are just stunning. Something about spring really makes me want to wear flowers. 🙂 Both items are scripted with a re-size script. This is a completely FREE gift with no groups to join. I want to wear them with everything! Pick up this beautiful set at FFHQ .

With the weather so nice, and the sun shining more often than not, the accessory must-have is a cute pair of sunglasses! I knew I had to have something with a retro look to them, and I found just what I wanted on the Marketplace. Sn@tch has these reto-inspired sunglasses on the Marketplace for just 30 lindens. They have color change lenses and some great little detailing to make them stand out from similar styles. I really feel like they did the perfect job of completing the look.

Cart Sale – Sexy Bish Clothing Co.

Sexy Bish Clothing Cart

Sexy Bish Clothing Co. has a cart at the current round of The Cart Sale at The Wash, and you need to go there! The Sexy Bish Cart includes retro rockabilly inspired items, but the show stoppers are these vintage hot-rod inspired heels. What would otherwise be just a really nice pair of high heels becomes a really gorgeous pair of shoes with the added detail of these “pinstripes” that are very like the detailing you might find on a restored classic hot rod. I seriously went bananas over them when I first saw them! These shoes are meant to be worn with Slink High feet and are available for just $10 lindens per pinstripe color.

Also at the Sexy Bish Cart you’ll find this fun set of vintage retro inspired wall art. Included in the 4 piece set is the “Hell Cat” poster shown above, along with two other posters and a wall sticker. The full set is $10 lindens. These items would be great additions to any retro themed room or as props for photos.

Below is a photo of the Sexy Bish Cart so you know just what to look for and get a little preview of all the items and colors available.

Rockabilly Cute-ness

CPBL

Hair and skins have to be my two biggest addictions in Second Life, if you’ve read my posts before, you know this. So tonight, I’m feeding my addictions and looking super cute while doing it!  Right now Cavalieri has this very cute hairstyle available at the main location for just $1 linden. It’s called Zoe, it’s mesh, and comes in a fat-pack so anyone can wear it. I also picked up this pretty skin from PB Designs. It’s called Valentina, and is their current Group Gift, available at their main location. I ❤ the eye-liner! Cute hair, pretty face, I had to have a dress to go with it. I found just what I wanted at Laney’s. This adorable rockabilly style dress is a Lucky Board exclusive at Laney’s. Not only is the dress free, just gotta wait for your letter, it can be worn with or without Lolas Tango. A cute pair of heels and some chunky bangles, and I am ready to take on the world, or have one heck of a girls night out!
