Wind Ready

Wind Ready

I would most likely be aging myself if I started ranting about the hot pink and purple wind breaker I had when I was young.  There was this whole thing about being protected against the wind that made its way into fashion the form of pants and jackets, and I just want to say that that was a *moment*.  Apparently, that moment is kind of making a comeback since I’m feeling pretty wind protected today!

My Fave!

Every month, I wait with bated breath for the latest Amitomo gacha release at Kustom9.  I’m never disappointed by the colourful offerings, and this month is no exception.  People often ask me if I’m paid to review them, or if I’m given these gachas, but I can solemnly swear that I am not.  I REALLY do love them and pay my own Lindens to get them.  I always play them with the bargain hunter mentality – as few plays as possible, and see what happens.  In just three pulls (I SWEAR!) I got the rare hair, this cool purple dress and the awesome jacket (sized for Maitreya) to go over all.  At just 69L per pull, you’ll inevitably walk away with something that you can make an outfit out of for very little dough.

Among the Ruins

Among the Ruins

Here we go, FabFree.  Time to visit some ruins in a snazzy outfit.   What, you don’t do that every day?  Well, technically neither do I, but I do love a good ruin and a great outfit.  Next time I’ll visit the Forum in Rome wearing a ball gown.

Aline’s Kustom

It is indeed my custom to visit the event Kustom9 every month and play a few gachas.  I’ve extolled the virtue of Amitomo’s gachas many times in the past, mostly because it actually is an excellent deal.  I know there are gachas out there that are fun to play, but you often end up with 20 pairs of nose rings in puce, instead of the item you really want.  When it comes to Amitomo, you’re sure to walk away with a full outfit even if you’re just pulling once or twice.  Whenever I play these gachas, I keep our readers in mind – I know many of us like a good bargain, and I feel that Amitomo really does deliver bang for your buck.  At just 69L per pull, I got this top, shorts, and jacket (sized for Maitreya bodies) after my first try.  Worth it!  You’ll find lone jackets, earrings as well as a pretty hairstyle as the prizes too.  Good luck!

Now I wonder if there is a sim that features the Forum in Rome….

Fly, Fly Away

Fly, Fly, Away

Once I get you up there
Where the air is rarefied
We’ll just glide
Starry-eyed
Once I get you up there
I’ll be holding you so near
You may hear
Angels cheer, ’cause we’re together

Gacha Good

Yep, I’m dreaming of the heavens today…time to spread my wings and float!   Anyyyywhoos, It’s that time where I get all excited about the fact that Amitomo has a new gacha out at Kustom9!  They always put out super cute and very playable gachas.  By very playable, I mean that it’s super easy to put an outfit together in just a few pulls.  I only played twice (seriously, I promise) and got the cute top (check that rainbow detailing around the hem) and awesome jean skirt.  At just 69L per pull, this is a great gacha to play!  You might get lucky and get the rare hair too.  This gacha set is sized for Maitreya.  Head on over to Kustom9 to play, you’ve got until September 10th!

Song is stuck in my head again!

A Slice of Heaven

A Slice of Heaven

It’s one of those days where all I want to do is go out, buy ridiculous amounts of objects that I don’t really need, and then finish with a massive bowl of ice cream.  Doesn’t that sound wonderful?  I think everyone has their own idea of heaven, but that might just be one of my favourite iterations!

Gacha Good

Kustom9 is in full gear right now, and Amitomo are back at it with their newest gacha.  I can never resist playing the Amitomo gachas, because they really are a great deal.  You usually walk away from 1 or 2 plays with a full outfit, and with a bit of luck you often land the rares.  This has been my experience at the very least!  I promise that I only played this gacha three times (at 69L per pull) and I landed this full outfit (the dress, jacket, bags and ice cream, all with HUDs to customize the bags and ice cream, as well as the hand colour) as well as the rare hair.  In my books, that’s an awesome deal!  Plus…just look at it, how much more late 80’s early 90’s appealing can you get?  This fun outfit comes sized for Maitreya bodies and there are loads of different versions of the outfit you could end up with!  Check out the vendor pic below!

Good luck!

Fluffy and Fine

Fluffy and Fine

I’m all about the massive fluffy jackets right now, and today I found a fantastic iteration of the relentlessly chic look!

Gacha Covered

This round of Kustom9 is, as per usual, full of things I want to spend my Lindens on.  Amitomo always calls out to me with their awesome creations.  Their Merry and Bright gacha is just 69L per pull, and most of the prizes are complete outfits.  I got the coat and dress on the first pull, and the hair just 2 pulls later.  You’re sure to walk away with a fantastic outfit for very few lindens.  Also, you can make the dress disappear with the HUD if you want to wear the coat on its own!  This gacha comes sized for Maitreya bodies.

Good Luck!

Sometimes I like coffee more than people

FabFree: Sometimes I like coffee more than people

Good morning FabFree!  Today I am going to be telling you about a free pose set by Lyrium (one of my favourite pose makers!!) and Nerido’s gacha offering at The Arcade for December.

Since we are all here on the FabFree Blog… I’ll start with the free news!

You might notice that I use Lyrium Poses in my photographs quite a bit, and I was very excited to see that inworld group members of The Pose Fair group can pick up the Coffee Break Pose Pack that includes 5 poses and the steaming coffee cup prop as a free group gift at The Pose Fair!  This group is free to join, and as mentioned in a recent previous post [HERE], there are several gifts all over the event at different displays!

Rene Set by Nerido @ The Arcade

The Rene Set by Nerdo at The Arcade is just 75L per play and you can mix and match to make up the casual and comfy outfit shown.  There are 15 commons and 3 rares and I am pretty confident you could probably make a whole outfit in a handful of plays mixing up colours since there are only three pieces.  Good luck!

Happy Weekend Fabulouses!  Today in my blog post, I am featuring Nerido’s Kate Gacha Set at Epiphany.

I ♥ Nerido’s Gacha Sets!

I loooove Nerido’s Gacha Sets, because usually you can put together a whole outfit with commons and minimal pieces, so it doesn’t wind up costing you a fortune to play for it.  I am wearing all commons today – The Kate Dress (#7), String (#25) and Shoes (#15) in Indigo.  Another exciting tidbit about this set?  It’s available fitted for Maitreya AND LEGACY!

Dreaming of summer

FabFree: Dreaming of summer

Good morning Fabulous Readers!  Today I bring you news of the gorgeous Elisa Gacha Set by Vision that is available at Epiphany!

Budget Friendly Elisa

Vision’s Elisa is a very budget friendly gacha set as you can build entire outfits with just commons, and you can mix and match colours without it looking incomplete or patched together.  Another thing that is great about this set is that the bikini top and bottom come together as one piece so you don’t have to worry about playing for the one that goes with it.  I am wearing three commons in my outfit today to put together this look that could be beachy or with a few creative alterations could be a wonderful fantasy outfit too.  This set is 75L to play for at Epiphany!

Sizes Available:
