Captain’s Log: The Nineteenth of March, Year Unknown
My Co-Captain and I set sail for an uncharted destination just a few days ago. Today, for the first time, we found land. Our steam ship ran aground in an unfamiliar location. Where, or even when our time travels have brought us, we cannot be certain. All that is certain is that we found our adventure, and we look absolutely smashing while doing so.

Hello Fab Free’rs! Welcome back to the blog, I promise you haven’t stumbled over a strange steam punk novella. I was just having a little fun with some of the fantastic Seam Hunt prizes my guy and I gathered. His hat, and our amazing jackets are free Seam Hunt prizes. In addition to the hunt freebies, I picked up an incredibly detailed free steam paddle boat that was just too cool to not share with you. I hope you enjoy these fabulous finds, and maybe even go on an adventure or two of your own.

The Hat – I think bowler style hats are really cool for steam punk attire. This particular Steam Hunt gift hat by Miss Darcy has some extra steamy details, both literally and figuratively. This cool hat has a “steam” effect that comes from the wheel handle on top of the hat when worn, not to mention the goggles which complete the look. You have until March 31st to hunt down the little brown cog and claim your free gift.

The Coat – I still cannot get over the gorgeous details of these tailcoats by Contraption. This coat comes in male and female mesh sizes, and includes a cummerbund applier, as well as a system layer cummerbund. Additionally there is a color change hud that lets you change the color of the ascot/scarf and the little pin in the center of the scarf. Lastly, each of the sizes has an additional “bound” option for a corseted look. The best part is that this highly detailed piece is Contraption’s free Steam Hunt prize.

Sizes Included: Belleza Freya, Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass, Slink Male, Signature (Geralt, Gianni), Belleza Jake

The Spirit of Adventure

The Steam Paddle Boat – Believe it or not this ultra cool vessel is not only completely free, it has full permissions. I stumbled across this awesome freebie while exploring sims. This free boat can be found at the Alpha Tribe sim. Simply pay the boat 0 linden and you’ll find a copy of it in the objects folder of your inventory. Along with being cool to look at, this steam paddle boat has some animated parts, and 2 sit poses. There is a single pose at the steering wheel, and one up top at the organ. Lastly, since this freebie has full permissions, you can customize it however you like.

P.S. If you dig Blue’s waxed mustache, it’s a freebie too! You can pick it up for free at Kauna. Afterall, dapper gentleman would be complete without one.

Here are the details, may you have happy adventures!

I'm just roleplaying that it's warm again... Don't mind me!

Hello there Fabulouses!  The other day [HERE], Aline sent you to Oubliette to check out the lucky board prizes in her witty, fashionable way, and you just might want to run back there and do a little lucky board stalking again because Melora Frost has reloaded the lucky boards with four fresh free prizes!  I’m wearing one of them in my post today.  Remember you will need to be a part of the inworld group to participate in the lucky board offers, but it’s free to join!

Goin’ Gone

Goin' Gone

Happy Saturday, Fabulouses!  I have to get my house ready for the bug guy to spray (oh the joys of living in the desert with scorpions and other nasties), but I wanted to pop in quickly to share a really pretty hunt prize with you.  I’ve already blogged one of our other finds from the Puppy Love Hunt here, but I must say, I think this one is my favorite.

Lagenlook – What’s That?

The Byzantine Lagenlook dress from Coveted features a gorgeous golden design over a deep burgundy fabric, which happens to be a go-to color for me in RL.  Its slightly flared, asymmetrical hemline falls at about mid thigh.  Cap sleeves and a fairly high scooped neckline complement the figure-flattering cut of the frock.  Three covered buttons on the right hand side add visual interest.  I had never heard the word “lagenlook” before, so of course, I googled it and discovered that it is a style which incorporates wearing layers of clothing.  Although I chose to wear just the dress by itself for my post today, I think it would work well with additional items such as leggings, a jacket, etc.  To pick up a copy for yourself, head on over to the Coveted store and locate the hunt object (a pet bed with a bone) concealed in the shop.  For just 1 little Linden dollar and a bit of time looking around, you’ll come away with a lovely outfit.  The Puppy Love Hunt runs only until February 28th, so if you like the prize as much as I do, don’t delay!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

Well, I am off to vacuum and tidy up.  I can tell spring is coming because Ripley is blowing his coat, and his “German Shedder” hair is creating dust bunnies galore.  Thank goodness for the invention of the vacuum cleaner!  Until my next post, happy hunting!

Red and Pink

Red and Pink

I always thought that red and pink couldn’t go together.  Wasn’t there always talk of red and pink clashing, and how if you had red hair you could never wear pink?  Looking at all the offerings right now that are swirling these two distinguished colours together with reckless abandon, I’d say that theory was completely bunk!

Taking a Bite out of Love

The Love Bites Hunt continues this week (until the 17th) and you really can find all sorts of goodies on the sim.  It may take you a bit of time and patience (and possibly some eye drops, oy veh), but boy oh boy is it worth it!  I found some really fantastic stuff – my “Cupid is Stupid” top (with such lovely long sleeves, amirite?) and cute heart-adorned skirt are by Loki and cost me 25L each and sized for Maitreya bodies, and my super sweet heart-shaped glasses are by Dazed and were 25L as well!  Can’t say no to that!

Go forth and make some bold and romantic colour choices!

As Jolly As I Get

Jolly As I Get
Hello Again Fab Free’rs! I’m always glad you’re here. So I kind of don’t want to admit it, but this sweater by Oubliette suits me so well. *laughs* Not that I don’t get excited, but I’m rarely one to get super outwardly excited. So I could be totally thrilled about something and not express it the way most would expect. This sweater is one of 2 group gifts I picked up today, the second being a 300 linden gift card at Go&See which I used to get this skin for free. In addition I also picked up these earrings by SynCo for free at Winter’s Hollow. Keep reading and I’ll let you know all the info you need about each of these fabulous finds!

The Sweater – Sometimes you just need a little cheekiness in your wardrobe, or at least I do. This sweater is a current group gift at Oubliette. The Petite Mort/Oubliette group is currently free to join, so don’t miss out! Also, there’s an equally fun, if slightly more sinister Krampus sweater waiting over at Petite Mort that you can pick up for free with the same group tag. These novelty sweaters come in several mesh sizes. In addition I want to mention that gift cards are 50% off for a limited time!

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

The Skin/Gift Card – Right now the Go&See group is just 50 linden to join, and there is a limited time group gift 300 Linden gift card available until December 25th. The group gift card vendor is at the Go&See main store, right next to the redelivery terminal. That said, you could either wear your gift card and add the balance to your store credit then save it for later, or do like I did and pick up 3 of the group only 99 linden promo skins for free. There is a row of group promo 99 linden skins at Go&See. The one Pru is wearing is December’s promo named Eva. Next to the vendor for Eva there are specific instructions posted on how to get the skin for 99 linden, and how to purchase using your store credit. Follow the instructions carefully. You will need to be wearing the Go&See group tag! Eva comes in a Genus Project head applier, with Maitreya and Omega body appliers. Other promo skins come in Catwa appliers, and or Omega appliers. Please be sure to try the free demos before you purchase! Additionally, there are male skins at Go&See.

The Earrings – These tapered studs are a free gift by SynCo at Winter’s Hollow. There is no group needed, just pay the gift box under the Christmas tree 1 linden and be instantly refunded 1 linden. This gift includes a color/texture change hud that will let you choose from preset metallic color choices for 3 parts of the earrings. Also, the same hud will allow you to resize them. I would definitely consider these claw-like studs to be unisex. Winter’s Hollow is open until December 31st.

Here are the details, enjoy!

Just Call Me Wednesday

Beach Goth
Hello Fab Free’rs! I am always happy you’re here. So I’m just going to come out and say it, I call this look “when you’re goth af but you love the beach.” It’s true, I do love the beach and I certainly have my goth girl moments. There isn’t anything about this look, parasol and all, that I don’t love. I feel like a grown-up Wednesday Addams on summer holiday. The parasol, this killer swimsuit, and the gorgeous heels are all fabulous free or otherwise inexpensive finds. Keep reading and I’ll tell you the where and how of getting each one.

The Parasol – I found this adorably goth parasol by Kaos on the Marketplace for just 20 linden. It is just as you see though it is difficult to see the slightly speckled texture in this photo. The hold pose is built in, and it has resize scripts. I was even able to use the parasol with another pose and the parasol’s hold pose still worked. You can get your copy of this darkly cute parasol from the Kaos store on the Marketplace. Other colors are available also.

The Bikini – When I saw the ad for this bikini from Kenodoxy, I had one of those “I need that” kind of reactions. It is every bit as cute on as it was in the vendor photo. The swimsuit is a free group gift at Kenodoxy. It comes in several mesh sizes. The Kenodoxy group is free to join, so no reason to miss out on this awesome gift.
Mesh Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Hourglass, Physique), TMP, Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), Tonic (Curvy, Fine)

The Shoes – Those shoes though! I love everything about these free group gift shoes from VO.Z. The straps that wide around your calves are made to look like rose stems or vines. I think it makes them all the prettier. These shoes have a color change hud that lets you change the color of the heel, straps, the leaves, and the rose separately. To get your pair, head over to VO.Z and join the free-to-join VO.Z group.

Here are the details, enjoy!

Parasol w/hold – [Kaos] Cooky Parasol – Black – 20L on the Marketplace
HairRunAway – [RA] Wicca Hair – Grayscale

Everyone Loves a Scandal

Scandal

Hey There Fab Free! I hope everyone’s week is off to a good start so far. Mine has been joyously uneventful! For now I’m happy to be sharing this group gift top from Julia’s Scandal and these cute group gift ears from Pumec. I think they pair well together for a super cute casual look.

The Top – The corset-like belt really makes what would otherwise be a plain tee shirt seriously cute. I think this “top” by Julia’s Scandal is actually meant as a dress, but to be perfectly frank, Pru’s got too much booty for that! haha The top comes in the black and purple version shown as well as a white and blue version. I wore the dress/top from Julia’s Scandal with some plain black leggings and I think it’s real cute on. The bottom of the tee has enough flair to fit over the leggings. To get your copy of this cute gift, join the FREE Julia’s Scandal group and click this group gift vendor. Also this gift includes an alpha layer so it is compatible with classic avatars!

Mesh Sizes Included: eBody (Curvy, Fine), Maitreya Lara, Standard Fitted Mesh, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Slink (Hourglass, Physique)

The Ears – I want to start by saying that I was not sure what to expect from these mesh ears by Pumec. Now that I have tried them for myself, I highly recommend them. This set of ears is a current group gift at Pumec. They include a color change hud with several preset skintones, and the ability to adjust the skintone to match your skin. There are also a few color options for the piercings. They are also able to be sized using the same hud. The Pumec group has a join fee of 299 linden. There are several additional past group gifts available including a different pair of ears.

Here are the details, enjoy!

With Just a Little Bit of Pixie Dust

A Little Bit of Pixie Dust

Hello Fabulouses!  Ripley and I finished unpacking our prizes from the Pixies of Snow Hunt (you can read more about our adventure {HERE}), and discovered this exotic Neva skin from Stargazer Creations.  With cool blue and lavender tones swirled across a lighter blue base, this fantasy-themed skin would be ideal for role play.  I really was impressed by the quality of this free skin, and although it’s not my typical SL look, I really wanted to feature it in a blog post.  The prize box includes a skin layer for classic avatars and an Omega Advanced Applier, which allowed me to easily add the skin to both my Maitreya Lara body and Catwa head.  My picture really doesn’t do justice to Neva’s gorgeous tones and swirls of colors.  If you are planning to do some magical role play, and would like a free skin to start you on your journey, this free hunt gift from Stargazer Creations might be just what you need!  Ripley and I were able to complete the hunt in under an hour, so it won’t cost you a single Linden dollar and just a slight investment of time.

We’re off to find someone in need of a sprinkling of pixie dust.  Until my next post, happy shopping hunting!
