The Creative Process

The Creative Process

Ah, Fab Free…the creative juices are a-flowin!  And there’s a sentence that sounded better in my head.  Despite my clunky phrase, the sentiment remains the same!  I’m all about the artistic pursuits, whether in RL or SL, so why not adorn your SL affordably?  Read on!

So De’Fient

My lovely boots and dress are the offering by De’Fient Unicorn at The Wash Crisp n Cool Cart Sale.  They come bundled together and are priced at a very affordable 50L.  I’d pay way more than that for the boots alone!  I also picked up the long cardigan at the same stall, and it only cost me 1L.  Cute, right?

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Venus
  • XXS-L with an Alpha Layer

Easel-y Done

Terrible subtitles aside, I love the whole art set I picked up at The Cart Sale by Luna Rose.  The easel I’m painting on and the stool came together and cost 50L.  The exciting part is that the canvas has a function that lets you paint gradually.  In other words, the painting appears more and more complete each time you click on it and there are two different paintings to choose from.  Fun!  I also picked up the canvases on the ground in my shot at the same cart, and they set me back only 25L.  I love to decorate in SL, so these were fun buys for me!

Do you keep it creative?  Let me know in the comments!

Her Dark Designs

Her Dark Designs

I am attempting to creep majestically through this foggy graveyard today.  I’m not sure that one can simultaneously creep and be majestic, but I will make it work some way or another!

Hunting for a Pumpkin

My raven costume (that’s what I’m calling it, at the very least) is one of the offerings on The Pumpkin Hunt!  Several stores have banded together to do mini hunts on their own lands.  You can grab an HUD at each store to help you out, or check out the hunt keys and all the information HERE.  I went over to DM where they had this dress (which comes with an Omega Applier and sizes XS – L with an Alpha layer).  It comes with the mask I’ve got on, the necklace and even a pair of shoes (which I’m not showing you).  All this fun for just 25L!  There are other great costumes at DM as well which will have you ready to go for Halloween Night!

Creepyyyyy!

A Bit of Sizzle

A Bit of Sizzle

Ok, so I may have a mild obsession with the beach and ice cream right now.  Can you blame me though?  It’s July and all things sweet and hot are on the horizon.  Why fight it when all I want to do is spend my days on the sand?

Sizzling!

You may have heard here on the blog that The Wash Sizzling Summer Cart sale is going down!  I really love this event, because you find some really fun deals when you check out the stalls!  I came across this super adorable minidress by ML Fashion.  The best part about it is the fact that it’s materials enabled which means that it shines and glows as you move, giving a really realistic iridescent effect.  I chose the darker “rainbow” effect outfit, but there are a few other options that are really just as pretty. I picked this sweet outfit up (which comes with an amazing set of lace up sandals too) for just 25L!  There’s also a free gift at the cart as well, so make sure you check that out!

Sizes

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

The Wash Sizzling Summer Cart Sale runs until July 24th!  What will you find?

The Lollipop Guild

I’m not sure what Aline and I saw off camera, but it must have looked delicious! Speaking of delicious things, if finding freebies was like buying candy, Beautiful Dirty Rich would be the whole sweet shop. Beautiful Dirty Rich is celebrating 10 years in Second Life and has a generous group gift waiting. It includes 10 total free group gifts all neatly bundled in one big gift that you won’t want to miss out on. Aline was sweet enough to help me show 3 of the 10, and I’ll add the gift key below. Currently the Beautiful Dirty Rich group is free to join, so don’t hesitate to head over and grab these sweet gifts and the several other previous gifts that are still available.

Together in Electric Dreams

Together in Electric Dreams

We’ll always be together
However far it seems
We’ll always be together
Together in electric dreams

Sometimes I feel like Together in Electric Dreams is kind of the theme song of Second Life.  We basically all hang out together, our thoughts zapping at each other through electrical currents as we make friends, fall in love and be whatever we really want to be.  I sometimes get a bit philosophical about what Second Life is, or what it can mean to us all, and I’m sure you’ll agree it can definitely be a special place.  It has its ups and downs, but it brought you here, and I’m glad you’re here, so it can’t be all bad, now can it?

Completely Syndicated

I’ll stop going all maudlin and thoughtful and get down to the fashion!  It’s time for another round of Syndicate Sunday – a whole week of deeply discounted finds from some of your fave designers!  Everything for Syndicate Sunday is priced at just 69L, so you can grab some cool stuff!  Here’s what I’m showing you today:

  • 69L Lingerie by Psycho Barbie (sized for Freya, Isis, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique and Venus, HUD to change to several colours)
  • 69L Earrings by Astara (With an extensive colour change HUD)
  • 69L Animated Panels by Hilted (Can be resized, in several glowing hues)

There are a whole bunch of great deals for Syndicate Sunday, so make sure you check out their website to see all the awesomeness!  This round runs until May 12th!

Thanks for being a part of my electric dreams,

My Favourite Unicorn

My Favourite Unicorn

I know we spend a lot of time talking about fashion and Second Life, but the thing that keeps us always coming back for more is by far the friendships we make along the way.  The strange path of SL can bring you to loads of places, but one of the more pleasant paths brought me to my lovely friend Seraph, who happens to be my favourite unicorn of all time.  Seraph wrote to me a little while back, knowing my penchant for clothes and whispered into my ears of a really gorgeous gacha over at Kustom9 that I needed to take a look at.  Well she was exceedingly right (she’s a very sartorially-inclined unicorn), and we coordinated our forces to bring you all the details of this cuteness!

It’s the Kustom

So Seraph and I ambled our way over to Kustom9, and after just a few little clicks we both had complete outfits, including the hair!  At just 69L a pull it really is a cheap way to put a cute outfit together.  The tops with the jean jackets are super adorable, just use the enclosed alpha to make your arms disappear (or if you have a Maitreya body, it should do it automatically).  There are loads of skirts and tops and jackets to mix and match, and if you happen to get the rare hair (like we both did, after not too many tries) you get a fatpack of colours with the ability to change the colour of the little braids too.   The gacha comes in S, M or L as well as being sized for Maitreya bodies.  I can’t deal with all the cuteness!  Kustom9 is open until April 10th!

I hope you have a magical special someone in your Second Life, because I know that my little unicorn sure lights up my life!

It comes in several sizes, and 2 options. There’s the black version Pru is wearing, and a white version which is the same pattern with the colors reversed. The male gift is a vest with the same cool pattern. Right now the BYRNE group is free to join.

Also, if you like the backdrop Pru is using, it is a past (Jan. 2018) group gift at Foxcity that is still available. The Foxcity group has a one time join fee of 550 linden and there are quite a few group gifts still available.

The Vordun


The Vordun

Welcome back Fab Free’rs! I’m super excited you’re here. I’m always excited you’re here, but I have a fun post to share with you today that I hope you’ll enjoy. Along with showing off the sassy halter dress Glitter has out as their free Fabulously Free in SL group gift, I wanted to share with you a fun destination I recently discovered. The Vordun is a fully functional art museum and gallery with a well curated collection complete with a detailed audio experience that you can visit and enjoy for free. It was on a whim that I ended up here on a date not too long ago, and it was genuinely a fun and interesting way to spend time with someone in Second Life without going to a club or wading through crowds at an event. Not to mention, The Vordun is a beautifully done venue.

The Vordun Lobby
As you enter the building, The Vordun’s lobby is bright with the skylight overhead. One either side of the room you’ll see headsets you can click to allow the hud to attach so you can enjoy the audio presentation that goes along with your walk through the museum. The hud also attaches automatically as you enter further into the room. There are clear detailed instructions on how to use the hud and hear the information about each of the unique pieces of art in the museum. You can also take a look at the map on the wall to get a feel for how big the building really is.
The Vordun Gift Shop

You can choose to follow through the guided tour, which I’d recommend if you have a little free time and enjoy learning about each of the artworks. Alternately you can of course browse through The Vordun at your leisure. I found the exhibit about block printing was my personal favorite. There’s also a really interesting section about a global postcard project where people send postcards to another random participant anywhere in the world. As you round out your visit to The Vordun, there’s even a cute giftshop where you can buy different gifts or souvenirs to remember your visit. Once you’ve had your fill of the museum, I’d also suggest visiting the grounds. There is shopping, and if you follow the path away from The Vordun, you’ll end up at a cute little frozen yogurt shop where you can sit and have a treat while enjoying the scenery.

Glitter at The Vordun
Lastly, if you’re interested in Pru’s outfit for this post, it does as I mentioned include the most recent Fab Free group gift by Glitter. This beautiful copper/bronze colored halter dress is free to all Fabulously Free in SL group members. Just wear your Fab Free group tag and click the gift vendor at the Glitter main store. If you’re not already a member of the Fabulously Free in SL group, what are you waiting for?! The group is always free to join. This pretty little dress comes in several sizes, and has a hud that allows you to switch the skirt from short to long, choose whether the top is opaque or transparent or “remove” the dress entirely by making it completely transparent.
Sizes Included: Fitmesh (xs-XL), Fitmesh Maitreya Lara, Fitmesh Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Fitmesh Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Fitmesh EBody, Fitmesh Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Fitmesh TMP

Fab Free Designer of the Week – 1/13/2019 – C!L

Hello hello Fab Free’rs! You guessed it, this is another edition of “Designer of the Week” with fabulous designer C!L. This is definitely a new-to-me shop, and as C!L may well be new to you as well, we like to make a little post once a week as we have new designers joining Fabulously Free in SL to tell you about them and all they have to offer (especially the gifts!). C!L is a ladies clothing store that has a sort of “old Hollywood” feel to their clothing style. Much of what you’ll find are mesh dresses for both casual and formal occasions. The C!L shop itself is small, though I suspect that may change. Currently you will see right away the desk where you can grab a little free gift. It’s the small purple giftbox. Also, as you can see C!L is participating in the Magical Winter Hunt.

Here next to the desk is also where you can join the C!L store group. It has a one time join fee of 50 linden. The current C!L group gift is waiting just above the group joiner. It’s a pretty strapless formal gown in several colors. You can also pick up the free C!L gift for Fabulously Free in SL group members in this spot. The Fab Free group is always free to join. Just click the gift vendor while wearing your Fab Free group tag to get your fabulous fur coat.

Across from the desk on the opposite wall at C!L is a Midnight Mania board. The free prize is another beautiful formal gown in black. There is no group required to participate in this Midnight Mania board, and as you can see the board has a low target that does appear to fill up! Whether you are looking for a formal gown or just something pretty to wear while you shop, definitely stop by C!L and take a look at their glamorous clothing line.

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!
