A Fauny Nymph

Wood Nymph
Hey There Fab Free’rs! I’m feeling a little fauny today… okay bad puns aside, I was totally inspired by the new Fabulously Free in SL group gift from PoshTale to create this fun faun look.

If you’re not a member, join! The group is free to join. This gift can be found to the right as you enter the PoshTale store. It comes in mesh sizes and has an alpha layer for Classic Avatars. Also, there is a color change hud with 10 solid color options for the tunic, and a choice of gold or silver for the side straps and fasteners.

Your Own Underdark!

In the dark_001

Your own Underdark…

It’s not often you get the chance to own your own Underdark, especially for the price of just 1L. Zyn is offering their Mini Underdark Skybox on the Marketplace for just that! 1L and it’s yours. It’s only 47 prim and it’s rather detailed, with multiple cavern rooms, a water pool, stalagmites and stalactites, mushrooms, lanterns, and more. The picture above is taken in part of one of the detailed caverns!

Ahhhh roleplay…

Roleplay is one of those fantastic past-times in Second Life and it’s always fabulous when you can come across some great gifts to add to your wardrobe. I stopped by the Menstuff lounge and there is a large assortment of menswear currently out that you can pick up for your one-time fee of 50L to the Menstuff group. Among the items was this “Morris” outfit. It’s really just a regular every day outfit, but since it doesn’t have any zippers and with the right accessories, I managed to turn it into a medieval one! It comes in a variety of mesh body sizes.

Outfit sizes available:

  • Classic XS-XL + alpha
  • Belleza
  • Gianni
  • Slink
  • TMP
  • Aesthetic

The details make the man

It’s the details that make this outfit work as a roleplay outfit. I stopped by Noble Creations and picked up some “details” to make this into a roleplay creation. The Noble Creations group is free to join and these gifts were free to pick up. I picked up the Prince in Leather neck piece to add over the top of the Morris shirt. I also picked up the Medici Pouch belt to add to my waist. Take note… this belt fit a little funny at first. I had to edit it to my shape, but it comes with a handy resizer that allows for resizing on all axises separately for a perfect fit!

The L’Homme Gift.

I think the L’Homme group gift from Noble Creations really makes this outfit. It’s a set of horned Bracers and Pauldrons that really stand out. You could add some weapons to this outfit to complete your look. Perhaps a shield and an axe or a sword and you’d be ready to go warrior! As always, the L’Homme group is free to join so this gift is free as well!

Happy roleplaying!

Doing Time

Jailbird_001

Would you believe that all those treats at that little Cafe that Love mentioned weren’t free after all? Oh no. They expected a smile in return. A smile. They were selling those sweet goodies for a smile, and I just wasn’t in the giving mood, but I wanted the goods anyway so I took that brownie. That’s how I ended up with a lifetime sentence to this blog… at least the uniform is free.

Just an inmate now.

That’s right. Just an inmate now. Serving my time writing blog posts for FabFree because I wouldn’t give a smile for a brownie. But you can get my orange prison inmate uniform free too. Maybe for some roleplay. Maybe for some fun. Maybe for Halloween (it’s not too early to plan for October, never to early to plan for Halloween, I say). Just head down to the Dufaux main-store, join the group for free, and pick up this group gift. Be sure to make it through the metal detectors.

It comes in the following mesh sizes:

  • Aesthetic Enzo
  • Belleza Jake
  • Signature Gianni

Maybe Love will let me off on good behavior… nah. I bet she gives me hard labor doing something like straightening photographs in the infohub 😉 At least I got a brownie out of the deal.

What’s in a cemetery?

Graveyard Presence_001

“What could you possibly hope to find in a cemetery?” The women said. “The dead tell no secrets and the living seldom come to visit them.”
― Felix Alexander, The Last Valentine

Many of my characters have roleplayed in cemeteries for various reasons. There is mystery and intrigue there. There is always a story to be had in a cemetery! Or someone’s story at least. When I put this roleplay outfit together for you, I immediately though… cemetery! And went to take a picture. But enough of the roleplay memories and onto the gifts!

Stop by for a treat!

Bluemoon Enterprise has out a great free roleplay outfit for February. Be sure to pick it up before the month is out. You’ll need the free to join Bluemoon group tag to pick it up. This Celtic Breeze outfit includes the pants, a skirt, the bracers, the top and the hood. The hood has a feature that allows you to wear it either up or down (I choose to wear the hood down) and the outfit comes in a single fitmesh size that I had no trouble making fit my Maitreya body.

Bluemoon Enterprise is housed inside of The White Armory. When you arrive at the entrance, go inside and then head to the Bluemoon store inside the large main-store building of The White Armory. You’ll find the Celtic Breeze gift inside of the smaller Bluemoon Building.

Another YM Gift

I showed you a group gift from the YM Shop in my post [Here] but there were so many on the wall that I picked up more than one. Among the free gifts I picked up with my free group join were the Beka boots. I discovered that these boots, although certainly suitable for modern wear, had a definite roleplay feel, and paired with my roleplay outfit from Bluemoon just perfectly.

  • These boots include a color change hud to change 4 different parts of the boots with 46 color options for each as well as 4 metal options for the rivets.
  • Sizes include: Slink Physique, Slink Hourglass, Mesh XXS – L

I hope you enjoy these gifts and happy roleplaying!

Fit for a princess!

Maiden_001

Aline has already shown you some great free gifts from the Gacha Garden {here} and {here} but when FabFree reader Victoria sent me a special tip that I could put together a roleplay outfit with two gifts from the event, I knew I had to blog them for you! All you’ll need is the Gimme Gacha group (the group is free to join) and then stop by the respective vendors to nab your gifts and this pretty fantasy look fit for a princess is yours!

Hair please!

This fabulous fantasy hair is free courtesy of Analog Dog at the Gacha Garden event and includes twisted braids in the front and back for a fanciful look. You’ll get a full range of colors with a color change hud and a tinting wheel that will allow you to make the hair almost any color your heart desires. This is fitted mesh and should work with just about any head you might have. It’s a generous gift indeed!

A dress fit for a princess!

Broken Style is also giving a generous gift at the Gacha Garden in the form of their Ursula gown. It includes a tiara as well, making it fit for a princess. It comes in all the standard mesh sizes and includes an alpha in case you need it. You’ll also get a color change hud allowing you to choose between three colors (I’ve included a picture of the hud at the bottom of this post so you can see). Pick this gift up free with your Gimme Gacha tag as well!

Vendor Artwork/Hud NOT my artwork!

Fit for a Lady

Enchanted_001_001

Roleplay is always near and dear to my heart, so when I find an outfit or dress for a bargain that I can share with you dear Fabulouses, I am thrilled! I was opening my Womenstuff Hunt gifts and ran across a gown that would be perfect for roleplay and wanted to share it with you.

Fit for a Lady

I stopped by Tiffany Designs and after a little hunting for the free red t-shirt, I picked up their Womenstuff gift and brought it home to unpack. It’s a lovely formal gown that is suitable for any formal occasion but also perfect for roleplay settings as well. It includes the gown I am showing above, as well as a white fur shoulder stole, a gold necklace, and long flowing sleeves. I’m only wearing the dress itself for the purpose of the picture.

Dress size fits:

  • Classic XXS – L
  • TMP
  • Fitted Mesh
  • Maitreya
  • Slink – Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Nothing will stop me now!

Flapper_001

“In New York there is always something to look at, but it is all infinitely more interesting through a window in the backseat of a limousine.”
― Anna Godbersen, Bright Young Things

I had my trunks packed, and I was ready to see the world. New York was just the start. You know how it is… these years… everyone says the 1920’s are just the beginning. Let a woman drink and smoke and the world comes to an end. Now we are independent, you see, and I’m going wear what I want, and do what I want, and…

Nothing will stop me now!

That’s because Silvan Moon Designs has me covered with a great group gift. When I picked up my POE gift from Silvan Moon Designs that I showed you {here} I noticed that they had out a gorgeous flapper dress as their group gift. The group is 500L to join, but the fantastic gifts make it well worth the fee.

The beads around the bottom are separate and the dress can be worn with or without them, and you also get the modifiable headband. Just a bit of editing, and the headband fit over my hair like a charm. Hurry before this dress is replaced with the next group gift!

Dress sizes available:

  • Fitmesh XS – M
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink
  • Freya – Skinny & Curvy

Now where should I head to next… Paris anyone?

Waiting for Sailors

Waiting for News_001

The ships will all be coming in this week and I’m waiting for a special sailor to make it back from their tour. Thanks to things like mobile towers and face-time I don’t have to miss my sailor friends completely, but seeing them in person is a different thing entirely! But once upon a time, reunions with loved ones who were out at sea for months at at time with little communication were a different thing indeed! These special vintage gifts from The Vintage Hunt, and a trip to the 1920’s New York sim reminded me of that!

Standard Vintage Fair

Be sure to stop by Loordes of London right now and get in on some of the amazing hunts that this shop is participating in. You won’t regret it. I picked up this 1L dress called the Victorian Standard as part of The Vintage Hunt. Just hunt down the little yellow umbrella and this gorgeous mesh dress is yours. It comes in classic mesh sizes XXS – L and includes an alpha if you need it. It’s all one piece, but is highly detailed with excellent texturing. I paired it with black boots for a classic feel.

Is the news in yet?

I picked up another great Vintage Hunt gift from Ashmoot. For just 1L you get two gifts at Ashmoot… these vintage sunglasses (they are resizable) and the vintage radio you see in my hand (I’m anxiously awaiting news of the returning sailors!). The radio gift includes two radios. You’ll get a no-prose prop radio that you can hold using a pose of  your own OR even rezz out in your home because its only 1 prim! PLUS you’ll get a radio that has a pose that will work with your animation override. I used the no-pose radio and added it to my own pose in the picture above.

Happy Hunting! And here is to all those with friends, family, and loved ones who are sailors!

Twisted Huntress

Wasteland_001

I’ve been able to bring you several roleplay posts lately… and it’s been a lot of fun to be able to do so. I have managed to put together an outfit today that is almost entirely free, expect for the pants and it would go great in a post apocalyptic setting, a sci-fi setting, or even a medieval fantasy setting.

It’s so twisted

The twisted hunt is on… with all its twisted cubes. It’s arguably one of the most difficult hunts on the grid, but it’s also one of the most rewarding with its excellent free gifts.

Roped Passions has a history of getting in on the action and this round is no different. The creator is giving away a main prize as well as 6 side prizes and will also have out a riot vendor as well this time around.

The main prize

You’ll want to hunt down this free Revenge Huntress Jacket as the main prize for the Twisted Hunt at Roped Passions! It’s a great piece for any sort of roleplay as I mentioned before and comes in crimson and black. It’s fully mesh and exposes the top of some cleavage without being overdone.

Shirt Sizes Available:

  • Standard mesh XS – L
  • TMP
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Boots too

One of the side hunt gifts at Roped Passions is the free pair of Vex Kreepers in Crimson Boots. They seem to be unrigged mesh and I found that by putting them on and then hiding my Maitreya feet they fit just perfectly. I think they would be adjustable to most mesh bodies. They are highly detailed and well made and as a side gift are free with a little extra hunting time.

Strike a Pose

I’d put together a roleplay outfit not too long ago in my post here when I visited the Imaginarium event. While I was there I also picked up a free pose from Dahila that you see in the picture above. It seemed to strike the perfect mood for my roleplay gear so I added it to my post. It would make a nice addition to a photographer’s inventory!

Wasteland_002

Details, details

Roped Passions has out 6 total free side gifts as part of the Twisted Hunt. I’m only showing you 3 in this post. The other 3 were just as amazing. You’ll want to find them all! Pictured above is the free Crimson Unisex Crown as well as the free Twisted Victorian Hunters Mask, each of which is a side gift that you can get for free by hunting for that twisted cube around the Roped Passions main-store.

If you hunt some more, you’ll also find a Gothic alter (not shown), a Snarky Cube (not shown), and Gothic Mushrooms (not shown). All these prizes are fantastic and definitely worth the hunt!

Wine Country and a Smoke

Grapes and a smoke_001

Time to use your imagination a moment… I have brought you another roleplay post, courtesy of the Gimme Gacha group which has been incredibly generous with the group gifts at their events lately. This month if you visit the Imaginarium Gacha event with your Gimme Gacha group tag on, you can pick up group gifts from around the event and I am pleased to show off a roleplay look I put together with a few of the free gifts!

Entice me…

I’m used to Entice providing quality outfits, but I think this is the first time I have seen them put out a roleplay gift. I was thrilled with this “Fairy Nightsongs” gift that they had set out for free near their gacha machine. It comes in XXS – L Fitmesh, Maitreya, and Slink Hourglass & Physique and has lots of great details, plus I love that it had the mid-drift showing so that I could show off another gift I found that I really liked…

Blowing in the wind…

Notice my belly tattoo? This tattoo by Fallen Gods (yes they gave another Gimme Gacha free tattoo gift! 😀 is called windy and it is so pretty! It delicately surrounds your belly button and if you look close their is a dandelion in seeded form blowing in the wind. You’ll get system layers and Omega appliers, and the tattoo comes in 3 colors: Black, Gold, and Turquois.

Speaking of wind…

What do you think of my windblown hairstyle? Personally I love it! And it’s the free gift from Love! It’s called Self Entitled and perhaps I felt a little self entitled as I put on the flowing locks. You’re going to get a full free fatpack of hair with this gift by wearing your Gimme Gacha group tag so picking this one up is well worth it!

Have a pipe and some wine…

I took a moment for some special treats from two different vendors. One was Moon_sha who was giving out these Barrels Grapes & Sacs as their group gift. The whole piece comes together as one set and all together is only 1 prim. That’s hard to beat! And it’s free! It makes a great little addition for roleplay furniture (did I mention it’s free?).

Since I was near the makings of wine country, I decided to have a smoke and I fell in love with the gift from Akume Drops — this Japanese Pipe. It is highly detailed an includes a smoking animation (that works great with animation over-rides) as well as a reasonable amount of smoke. The particles are not overdone but are just right to look realistic. Both of these gifts are really nice touches and excellent free roleplay props.

Lots of other things…

There were MANY other gifts at the Imaginarium event. Be sure to stop by and get them all!
