Eternal

Eternal

Even in death, be it through darkness and hellfire or endless light we will find a way.

Don’t worry, I won’t spend this blog post waxing poetic about otherworldly romance, however I will tell you how Blue and I managed to create this beautifully macabre scene with these awesome skeletal avatars. E-Clipse Design and CatsClaw Designs both have matching his and hers skeleton avatars out as group gifts. Unable to pick which set we liked the best I chose to wear the female avatar from E-Clipse Design along with a free applier mask from Mister Razzor. Blue on the other hand chose the male skeleton avatar from CatsClaw Designs, and together I think we make a fantastically spooky pair. Keep reading for all the important details about each item, or scroll on down for the full list of credits. Thanks for being here!

E-Clipse Design

As I mentioned above, my avatar from the neck down is all thanks to this awesome group gift by E-Clipse Design. It includes a male and female avatar. Both Avatars have the option of a beating heart with sound as well. The neck part of the avatar has a collar that reads “2 Sex 4 U.” To get your copy of these spooky fun avatars, head over to E-Clipse Design and join their free-to-join group. Once you’re wearing the group tag you’ll be able to claim your free gift.

Mister Razzor

Mister Razzor has out a free gift skull-face makeup applier. This gift is unisex and comes in several appliers. Currently no group is required for this gift, just purchase it at Mister Razzor for zero linden. Hurry though, I don’t know how long this freebie will last!

SkeleKitten

SkeleKitten
Kittens, and skeletons, and pumpkins with vines just like strings, these are a few of my favorite things! It’s true, I made up my own lyrics to that song, but the sentiment is true. I love this time of year. For this post I’ll tell you about this cute group gift jumper by ChicModa, and how to get these adorable kittens (with the pose) by Fashiowl absolutely free.

ChicModa

This skeleton print jumper by ChicModa is one of their most recent group gifts, and it is so cute on. Rather than the usual black, the jumper is a dark grey and looks like it would be soft to the touch. It comes sized to fit Maitreya Lara, and Slink Hourglass only. To get your copy you’ll need to wear the ChicModa group tag. The ChicModa group has a one time join fee of 50 lindens. Right now there is more than one group gift, and a few group-only Lucky Letter Boards.

Fashiowl

How could anyone resist these adorable tuxedo kittens by Fashiowl!?! They are part of the free La Vie en Pose group gift at the La Vie en Pose event. The event group is free to join. With this adorable pose set you’ll get 5 total poses each with adorable black and white kittens. It was difficult to choose which of these fun poses to share with you. La Vie en Pose ends on the 25th, so be sure to pick these up before they are gone!

Here’s What I Have On:

Hair – ELIKATIRA Haley – Essentials
Head – Catwa Koura
Skin – Essences Sibyl
Lipstick – DRBC – Coffee Stains
Jumper – ChicModa // Kandi Sport Jumper // SKELETON – Free Group Gift /Group is 50L to Join

At this time the Cureless group is 99 lindens to join, and there are several previous group gifts still available.

CHAIN – Another gorgeous group gift from CHAIN, this linked chain choker reminds me of one I’ve admired at Tiffany’s. It’s a timeless piece that could easily be worn with a casual outfit as well as a formal gown. This group gift also comes with a color change hud with several metallic options so it can match just about anything. The CHAIN Store group has a one time join fee of 100 linden, and there are several previous group gifts still available.

A sprinkle of silver

Details to follow

Hello again FabFree’ers!  I hope you have all had a good week and will have an even better weekend.

Zsa’s gown today is a free group gift from a new to me store. Art & Fashion.  This is just one of a whole display of group gifts in the store, you will find them directly in front of you as you land.  However, be aware that there are 2 groups, one a paid VIP group and one free, and this dress is available with the free group tag.  It comes in 5 standard fitmesh sizes (no alpha), plus Maitreya, Belleza and Slink – however it does not specify which of the Belleza and Slink bodies it fits.  It has a very skeletal, gothic feel, so would be ideal for the upcoming spooky season.

Pretty Psycho

Pretty Psycho
Hi and welcome back to the blog Fab Free’rs! I’m here on this marvelous Monday with a quickie post featuring two of the more recent group gifts at Cureless. I think it’s always interesting to see what the designer at Cureless comes up with. The items are usually leaning toward the creepy side while still remaining cute. I picked up a set of eyes, and a set of cropped tops from the pile of currently available group gifts. Also there are 3 lucky letter chairs at Cureless directly across from the group gifts. At this time the Cureless group is 50 linden to join.
CURELESS[+] Spookshow Eyes / GROUP GIFT!The Eyes – The group gift eyes at Cureless definitely fall into the category of “creepy kawaii.” The set includes mesh eyes, and appliers that will work with Catwa or Omega compatible mesh eyes. These spooky eyes all have a pale blue iris, and different pupil options. My favorites are the star shaped pupil and the cat-eye shaped pupil. You can also mix and match them like Pru has done.

CURELESS[+] Skelly Tops / Group GiftThe Top – This skeleton cropped top is also a group gift at Cureless. The top comes in two sizes, and four variations. There is the white skeleton version shown, a plain white top, a black skeleton version, and a plain black version.
Sizes Included: Slink Petite, Maitreya Lara

Here are the details, enjoy!

Hair – Clawtooth: Rose (19: Magic Pack)

Head – CATWA HEAD Koura Bento

Skin –  Essences – Blake – Currently @Kustom 9

Eyes – CURELESS[+] Spookshow Eyes – Free Group Gift/Group is 50L to Join

Last Minute Halloween Treats

Oh-My-Lanta, Its officially Halloween! I hope all of you have your costumes and are ready to do your own version of the thriller dance at what ever party you are attending today. I just wanted to provide you with some Halloween goodies that you can add to your decorations, costume, and something you can wear in the wee hours of the morning as you return home.

Last Minute Halloween Treats 5

First, the !-[Love Factory] has a free Spellcaster (Skull and Scroll) and Happy Halloween sign. So if your halloween venue still needs a sign, here you go!

Last Minute Halloween Treats 4

Next Prim & Pixel has this fancy Fuschia Duffle Coat for free, when you go to the store, head towards the back room. The Fuschia Duffle Coat is the only free one. I definitely like the animal print on the pockets, perhaps because I like things on the wild side. This coat will come in handy to keep you warm tonight, especially if you are wearing a sexy costume, but don’t put it too far back in your inventory because the weather is changing and you will need this.

HalloweenPost_005

Speaking of showing skin! If you have a costume that needs something extra to help make it more sinister, this halloween inspired skin and Chrome eyes by MIASNOW may do just the trick. I freaked myself out looking into my own eyes!

Last Minute Halloween Treats 2
Lastly, whats a halloween event without taking great pictures to remember the costumes you and your friends wore. Well you need to run on over to GLITTERATI to get Bones the Skeleton and The Coffin for those fun pictures. The Coffin will make for great group pictures and Bones… well how can you resist his sex appeal.

She’s an aDORKable D!va in her Sascha’s…

Adorkable D!va in Sascha's4

Shhhhhhh don’t tell Sascha…but I am previewing her November Member Group Gift…it is 50L to join her group, Sascha’s Designs…but she does that to keep the spammers out AND she makes it worth your lindens to join!!  Once you become a member you have access to an amazing array of previous monthly group gifts.  Sascha is also very generous with her members…with impromptu sales and 60L weekends…not to mention you usually get several skirt & top options in each dress you buy along with whatever accessories she has created for that gown/outfit (yes she does create more than just those gorgeous gowns). This monthly gown comes with the FrubbelDubbel (hey I didn’t name it!) skirt you see and you will also have the options to purchase the extra skirt styles.  Trust me…they are worth it!

Adorkable D!va in Sascha's3

I scored more fabulously free items with two more group gifts!!  The adorable Norma hair in Ruby is from D!va and it comes with a Bat Wing option…just in time for that haunting holiday coming just around the corner.  Norma is a group member gift but the group is free to join AND membership gives you access to lots of more pretty previous member group gifts….that is just all kinds of awesome.  The gorgeous peach and white diamond necklace is part of the Romance Set from Virtual Impressions (previous group gift/free to join)…Chrissy designs wonderful jewelry and she generously puts one of her designs out for her members to grab every month.  In addition to the monthly group gift…Virtual Impressions features other items at fabulous sale prices throughout the month.

My oh-so-enchanting pose is from aDORKable Poses.  It isn’t free (200L)…BUT you get four beautiful poses and the petals to wear for taking equally enchanting pictures of yourself in your Sascha’s gowns.   When you purchase your aDORKable poses at the inworld store you automatically bank 10% of the purchase price, as store credit, to put toward future store purchases….group membership NOT required!  I purchased some of my poses at her Marketplace store and had a few minor issues that ADORKable graciously and promptly rectified.

My shoes, skin, eyes and eyelashes were also not free but I shall list the details below.

The pics were shot on location at the Virtual Impressions landing point.

So what are you waiting for…go grab these fantastic freebies and get all gussied up…you deserve it <3<3

She tangos in NC Paris full of .:EMO-tions:….

Tango In Paris

A few months ago I joined the NC Paris Group (free to join) the group gifts are generous, from jewelry to dresses, and each item is well made.  I love that I can pick up a nice piece of jewelry to mix and match with my everyday as well as elegant looks…for FREE!!  Something about this simple black skeleton dress made me want to do more with it than make it another Halloween outfit…so I threw on the bronze skeleton cuff, matching earrings, fine bangles and clutch (ALL free at NC Paris)…called Kyle and asked him to meet me for a Tango (10L pose from [MotivAction] Poses & mesh clothing).
Tango In Paris2

I topped the look off with the fabulously tousled *Anita* hair from .:EMO-tions:. (Free). The gorgeous Samhain necklace, with matching earrings (not worn) from ::CHOP ZUEY COUTURE:: is a group gift (350L join fee…but the creator is VERY generous with giving their members free gifts).  I scraped my pennies together to join this group but it is worth EVERY linden!!

Tango In Paris3

In this close-up you will see the clutch…unfortunately, the pic doesn’t do it justice.  This clutch is free to the members of NC Paris Group (free to join) and matches perfectly with the skeleton dress, earrings and cuff.  It is studded with diamonds on the front and the clasp is a gorgeously detailed bronze skull with a crown and diamond set eyes.

She’s a Love Zombie {dollle*} with a Paper Heart…

I absolutely LOVE Halloween..and I look forward to when October rolls around so I can start putting costumes together and decorating my place.  One of the best things about Halloween in SL is that I don’t have to wait until the 31st to start wearing my costumes and the decorating isn’t limited to my small First Life apartment.

{dollle*} just sent this fantastic Bloody Bandage Dress to their subscribo members. *It is a mesh item so you will need a mesh enabled viewer to see it properly.  I paired the outfit with this fabulous Bride of Frankenstein Hair from Paper Heart; available on the Marketplace for 1L and the Blood Blaster Heart from A Folf in Sheep’s Clothing; also available on the Marketplace for 1L.

I finished off the costume with a deep crimson colored lip tattoo, that I scored for 1L from cStar Limited, at The Boho Culture Fair, Bloody Tears III Face tattoo (5L) from REPULSE , and Dead bloody eyes from Sicknessthesia…(FREE) on the Marketplace.  The Liane Goth skin in silver, from Amacci, was featured by Renee here.

I went all out decorating my sim for Halloween and I saved buckets of Linden by taking advantage of the wonderful hunts taking place around the grid and by scouring the Marketplace for freebies.  The Zombie Mausoleum is a prize for the SL’s Top Haunted Places Tour & Hunt from Post Mortum Designs, the crows are actually Walking Skeleton ACTION auto-rezzers from Another Fine UGH Design  for 10L on the Marketplace and the tombstones are free…as part of a Halloween Decor set from Diavolo Creations. The black pumpkins are a  group gift, 50L to join, from ::PM:: Purple Moon Creations.

Hunting for freebies on the Marketplace can be quick and easy when you use a few tricks to filter what you are searching for.  I always search the Marketplace with a key word for the item I am interested in and then use the “Category” and “Price” filters in the side column.  The category column can be filtered down to a fairly specific group and I usually search for items priced between 0-10L.  There are other ways to search for freebies on the Marketplace, but I find this to be the quickest route.  Just remember to only take freebies that are from the creator of the item and that you write a kind review if you like the item.  Creators really appreciate the positive feedback and it is a great way to thank them for offering something free to everyone in SL.

Additional Info:

The pics were shot on my private home sim, which is part of SL’s Top Haunted Places Tour & Hunt…so stop in to hunt for your FREE gifts!! (Made by my fantabulous husband <3)

The facial expression is from AnyPose Expression, available for FREE on the Marketplace, from Phate Shepherd Creations.

The pose was created by myself using Animare Pose & Animation System (NOT free), available on the Marketplace, from YT Recreant.
