Who is this guy?
For those who don’t know me, I’m Carson, FabFree’s newest AND oldest vintage blogger. I was originally hired By Renee Lowenhart in March of 2010 as the male blogger for FabFree, writing alongside Renee, Whisper Swansong , and Farah Palmer. I also remember helping pick an upstart blogger in 2011 named Love Trill, who by the way likes to call me “vintage”… her word for old. I spent over two years writing over 1000 posts about free and cheap finds in Second Life before I retired from blogging and SL in 2012. I’ll be sharing my finds with you once or twice a week (as opposed to once or 5 times daily, like before) and tell a few of my goofy stories along the way.
Carson’s first find.
The first find I am going to show is more for new residents who land in Second Life, because let’s be honest, after being away for four years, I’m feeling a bit newbish. When I originally landed in SL back in 2008, I was looking for others to chat with and listen to music. One of the first places I went to was Frank’s Place Jazz Club. Having not much inventory, no Lindens and walking into a swingin’ joint with a dress code could be pretty daunting. Fortunately, this destination provided residents with a basic suit as to not draw attention to yourself (and risked being bounced) by wearing jeans and a t-shirt. Frank’s Place partnered with SARTORIA to create an updated version of the original Franks Formal Suit. This can be found just inside the main entrance to the club. Walk straight from the landing point and up the steps .
What’s in the box?
This suit for system bodies (yeah… back in the day they were just called bodies) comes with pants and two jackets, buttoned, and unbuttoned for a more casual look. also included are a pair of black dress shoes. (New Resident Tips: Because all the sliders on the shoes are all the way to the right, edit the shoes to make them look more formal and less like you raided Gene Simmons’ closet. Also, many destinations have free items, look at landing points and main building entrances.)
Nothing for the ladies?
Frank’s Place also has a free black dress for the ladies, but I just don’t have the legs to pull off that gown. 🙂
What’s next for Carson?
I’m hoping you all join me on my journey to create Carson 2.0. In the coming posts I plan on slowly transforming myself to a version that isn’t made with four years old parts. But then again, some people will always call me “vintage”.
