Pink and Spooky

Pink and Spooky

Hallowe’en sure does have a surfeit of black, orange and spooky all over, but if you know where to look, you can also find a bit of pink and pretty too!  So grab your frillies and clutch your pearls, cuz we’re going on a spooky walk!

Pink and Creamy

Pink Cream Pie are hosting a spooky walk!  What does that mean, you ask?  Well, they’ve decorated a little outdoor area for Halloween, and as you walk through the little maze-like area (which outside of the store), you come across different items you can pick up for deeply discounted prices.  I picked up the Carla top and Serena skirt for just 25L each!  There are several other stores participating, you’ll find some shoes, and even a cool outfit for the guys as you walk the paths!

Squelette Sounds

Squelette Sounds

I was in the mood for some live music, but when I got to the venue,  I was flabbergasted that the band didn’t have too much substance… they were all bones!  My first thought was a very niche Canadian reference about talking pineapples and singing skeletons (yes, we had weird but super awesome educational programs) , the second was the deep need for a stiff drink to get over the shock.

Dem Bones!

Ok, silly references aside – let me get you some freebies tonight!  This spooky little dress is the latest group gift from Wellmade.  To get this perfect Halloween dress, just join the Wellmade group for free, and click on the gift box below the vendor.  You’ll find several different colours and textures in the box, but I totally fell for the little ghosts.  Also, the top and skirt can be worn separately so you can mix and match.  Cute!

A Fortifying Drink

Whiskey was on the menu to get over my fright (but you can always say it’s iced tea if that’s more your vibe), so I headed off to Ishiku to pick up their latest group gift.  This little glass is super cute, you can’t 100% tell in my photo, but it actually has delicate little horns making it the perfect drink for the haunting season.  You’ll be able to see it properly in the vendor photo below.  The Ishiku group is free to join, and you’ll find several cool other group gifts there while you’re at it.

Before and After

IMG_2289

Cheerio gang!

This post is not your typical before and after.  Oh gosh I *do* love me a before and after, you know when they do makeovers?  It is one of my fondest wishes to one day get a makeover by professionals.  Alas.  But I love a makeover, it’s always so exciting to see what changes they make and how awesome whomever or whatever they were working on came out!

This is kind of a reverse before and after to showcase the awesome goodies I got at the Arcade Event, courtesy of Pare’.  Now, if you want to get all the juicy details of how the new system at the arcade works, I spelled it all out in my previous post here.  With that out of the way, let’s get on to the fun stuff, the goodies!  The machine for Pare’ is called Night Crawlers and is 75L a play and I had to come back on subsequent days to get both the outfits I was lucky enough to grab.  The above was the pink, which I love.  The below photo shows the Halloween version which I was lucky enough to get on my second day try.  I was originally going to just blog the pink one, but when I got the Halloween one as well, I couldn’t resist combining the two.

So, what exactly do I call my before and after?  The first photo, above, is before the Zombie Apocalypse, the second photo before is, well, after, obviously, and our brave heroine can tell she has become outnumbered and she is about to become Zombie herself.  Notice how she is biting her lip in distress?  So she has gone from geek chic to zombie hunter.

As I stated in my previous post, you choose the size you want to play for in the machine and I chose Maitreya Lara as that is what I wear.

Lessons learned by our lovely heroine… a gun works better than an axe when fighting zombies.  Unfortunately.

The End

A Break from Beaudelaire

A Break from Beaudelaire

I’m feeling a bit collegiate today.  Perhaps the changing leaves are bringing me back to days spent in the quad with piles of books and a mug of Earl Grey tea, the library not too far off as I delved into tomes of Beaudelaire and Dante.  I think that this precise moment is the one where you have had just about enough of deciphering the depths of literature, and you just need to let go for a little while.  I think that moment came pretty often for me!

500 is an Excellent Sum

Blueberry are at it again!  This time, they’re showering their group members with 500L in store credit.  How nice is that?  You can use it to buy anything you like in the store, and the entire store is 50% off until the 14th.  I picked up the Blessed jacket, skirt and top which were just 125L each, leaving me a bit of coin left over for something else.  You can get your own store credit by joining the Blueberry group for 20L, then peeking in group notices.  Once you add the HUD and click, the store credit will be added to your account and you can buy what you like in store.   Yay!

Innocent Until Proven Evil

Innocent until Proven Evil

When hinges creak in doorless chambers, and strange and frightening sounds echo through the halls. Whenever candlelights flicker where the air is deathly still — that is the time when ghosts are present, practicing their terror with ghoulish delight!

-Haunted Mansion Ride, Disney parks

Hey gang!

I’m back with some ghoulish delights of my own, found at the new style Arcade Event.  The event has been updated from the old style gachas into a new system of its own, which has you grabbing a HUD as you enter, and which you wear while you shop.  When you find a machine you want to play, you connect it to the machine. (don’t spend fifteen minutes trying to find it on the machines like I did at first, each machine is on a base and at the front of each base is two buttons, one to connect your HUD.)

Once you are connected, it will show you which item has been chosen for you to play for.  If you want that item, you pay the machine (if you try to pay it without the HUD, it will refuse your money and send it back to you.), if not then disconnect and head to another machine.  If you do play, you will get that item and the HUD will show you a new, random choice.

If you want to try again, you have to wait until the next day, as it will reset at midnight, and you can get new random numbers.  If you try again that same day, you will get the same numbers.  It’s kind of fun, really (and a bit addicting!).

So I lucked out on this play, the Mikunch machine where I got this cute dress (you choose the size you want to play for on certain machines), I chose Maitreya cause that’s what body I use.   It comes with a HUD giving you a handful of color choices (black, white, red, pink).  It’s only 75L a play.

This dress gave me sort of a “Bad Seed” sort of vibe, perfect for Halloween.  She is just a sweet girl, right?  Right?!  Only time will tell!

Happy Haunting!

Oh, What’s a Witch to do!

Raw Image, only Vignette added

What’s a Witch to do… When she can’t Remember *where* she parked her Broom!

Hmmm, that’s not mine, and this one isn’t mine…  Oh darn, none of these are mine!

Oh!

Hey gang, I didn’t see you standing there (or sitting as the case may be!)

I am back with a bit more fun from the Swank Pumpkin Hunt!  This is a hunt going on at the Swank Event and it is so much fun, so many great designers with goodies!  The hunt is free, and although you are required to join the Swank group, that is free as well.

This time I have a super cute outfit from Brii Underground!  This is a complete outfit, cute hat and everything, that is a hunt giftie at Swank.  This is a fit for Maitreya only, but golly it’s cute! (yes, I said golly.)  Since it is so cute, this, as you can see, is *not* one of my scary posts.  Thought y’all could use a break!  Don’t worry, I have more in the wings!  You will just have to wait and see!

Has anyone seen my broom around?  I need it to fly home!

Badly Kept Secrets

Badly Kept Secrets

It’s not a huge secret, but sometimes you have to pass on the news to your friends anyway!  That’s what we love doing here at FabFree – finding the scoop and sharing it far and wide.  Let’s get to the goodies!

Happy Anniversary!

ViSion is celebrating their anniversary with 400L in store credit for members of their group!  That’s pretty nice of them, don’t you think?  To take part in this awesomeness, just join the ViSion group for 18L, then click on the poster in the entrance.  With my 400L, I picked up the Eva jacket, bodysuit and skirt which only cost 125L each, leaving me a bit left over for later (The store is also currently 50% off!).  Don’t wait too long though, because this store credit will expire on October 24th.

  • Hourglass
  • Isis

  • Maitreya Petite

Visiting with Marie Antoinette

Visiting with Marie Antoinette

First things first, this building in the background is actually one of my favourite ever in Second Life – it’s a perfect replica of one of the buildings at Marie Antoinette’s village at Versailles.  Isn’t it the best?  In case you’re into it – you can find it at Never Totally Dead.  Anyway, I’ve decided to head over to the “hameau” (which basically means tiny village) and deliver a few treats to the inhabitants… I’m pretty sure there’s mostly geese at this point, which just means more cupcakes for me!

This is Halloween

Paper.Sparrow has a fun little Halloween Hunt going on until October 31st.  Just search the store for little black bats (spoiler alert:  they’re pretty hard to see!) and buy each prize for just 25L.  I grabbed the Astra Pants and Sandra top which look super cute together for my jaunt out into the wild.  Aren’t they nice?

A Precisely Placed Puzzle of Pink Pizzazz

pink_017

Home, Sweet Home

Welcome to my humble abode, gang!

I welcome you into my sl home on this Sunday morning, where I surround myself with all things pink (not the entire house, just this one room).  This is my dressing room/office.  You can’t see my desk in the photo, but it is there.  It took a lot of time, searching and lindens to pull this beauty together and it was worth every minute of it.  As Aline will tell you, if you can’t have it in real life, create it in second life!  This is the room where all the magic happens, trying on outfits, deciding what you guys need to see, then styling, and finally coming back and putting it all together into a blog post.

Today however, I’m going a step further and taking my photo in here as well.

I found this gorgeous dress at the Swank Event Pumpkin Hunt.  Now I am a blogger for Swank Event (along with my Fab Free duties!), but this time, I happily get to combine the two.  This is a free hunt and there is a plethora of pumpkins hidden at booths at the event.  You do need to join the Swank Group, but it is free to join.

This dress is courtesy of Zoom, one of my favorite designers, and comes with a HUD with ten color choices.  I chose my least favorite color (ha ha).

It fits:

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

Swank Event runs until the end of the month as as there are both fashion as well as home and garden designers, your gifts will have a perfect variety of both things!  I’m still going through everything I got!

Happy Sunday!  Enjoy your treasure hunting!

It’s Summer Somewhere

It's Summer Somewhere

It may be Fall in my part of the world, but there are other places where our readers come from where Spring is just starting.  Plus… inworld it’s whatever season you want it to be, now isn’t it?  I’m having a bit of a Summer throwback feeling today, with a cute dress, awesome sandals, and a cold drink to keep the heat at bay.

Fabulous and Free

There are always new FabFree group gifts popping up, thanks to our awesome Fabulously Free in SL designers.   When you go through our group gift listing, you can pretty much put together an outfit for free without straying too far from home!  I decided to show off two newer gifts that have been added to our listing lately that really tickled my fancy.  My first stop was Pink Icing, where I grabbed this excellent salmon coloured dress that drapes very prettily in the back.   These awesome shoes come courtesy of Lybra (one of my perennial favourites) who have made a pair of wedges that could not be more perfect for me (they come sized for Erika, Freya, Kupra, Legacy Maitreya and Slink).  There are several different textures – each with different cats on them.  Yep, I totally squeed when I saw them!  Of course, all our group gifts are always free, and updated regularly.  Tell your friends!
