Sea Friends

Sea Friends

Hey FabFree! Tonight I am showing off some awesome free sea pets, how to make a free fully bento, BOM, and mesh mermaid avatar, and free skins and shapes on the FabFree enchanted forest hunt!

The Tale of the Orca and the Starfish

The first thing I want to mention are my adorable underwater pets. As you might recall, I love animals and I also love fish and underwater creatures! This amazing and precious Orca is free gift at SL18B and you have just enough time to go grab him because the event ends tomorrow. This will be my last SL18B find to share and I am super sad about it, because I just loved this event. However, this beautiful gift by Jian is simply amazing. The Orca swims along with your avatar and it even does water tricks! It is just magical watching her/him swim underwater. Go grab this Orca for free at Jian’s booth at SL18B before it’s too late. 

The other cute little animal shown in my post today is the adorable starfish, who you will see has little cute, pouting eyes. This is a fish I caught with my 7Seas casual fishing rod for free. The rod costs 99L to buy, but you can catch free outfits with it (remember Aline and Arielles recent Sn@tch fishing post here?). While waiting for outfits, I have caught a lot of fish too and they are actually really cute pets! Many are animated, can swim around you, or you can rezz them in a tank or aquarium. They are too cute to delete. I just love this little starfish guy, and you can see a close-up of his little face below. 

Free Mermaids, anyone?

The other finds I want to share today are items that can be used to make a full, free BOM, Bento mesh mermaid avatar. 

The OpenMerTail

My mermaid tail is a free fully bento (moving) mesh tail- how cool is that! It’s like a total extension of your avatar. This tail moves and twists like a mesh avatar but the trick is to get the right bento ao for it to make full use of the bento features. The tail also includes fins which can be worn or detached. There is more information about this awesome bento, BOM mesh tail in the package, but it is all totally free on the Marketplace. This tail can be used on male, female and non-binary avatars. Because the OpenMerTail is its own mesh avatar part, you need to find and use BOM skins designed for the tail itself, and there is also a pack for creators and designers to make new skins for it! The tail is a full perm item. Note that a bento mermaid AO is not included in the package. 

Sizes Included

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Belleza Freya
  • Belleza Jake
  • Legacy Athletic
  • Must Trade Bara

OpenMerTail - Fullperm Bento Mermaid Tail

And here is a list of more free items I used to make my mermaid avatar:

  • I mentioned above how you will need skins for your new tail. Motley Fluke has several skins for the tail available for free on their marketplace store. The blue tail skin I am wearing can be purchased here for free. These tail skins are BOM and work only on the free mermaid tail advertised above. 
  • The stars pasties used to cover up my chest are another freebie on the marketplace. These stars are by Yama’s Ideas and they are unrigged, resizable mesh items. I just resized them manually to fit my avatar perfectly. The mesh pasties come in many different colours. 
  • The little bubbles below are a free animation by Stargaze on the marketplace designed for mermaid avatars. These are so realistic and perfect for creating realism of moving in the water. 
  • Finally, the skin used on my mermaid avatar is a free prize on the FabFree Enchanted Forest Hunt. This is one of several hunt prizes from 7 Deadly S[K]ins. The natural skin, untouched with no makeup, can be seen in my photo below. I am also wearing a free shape included in the hunt, but I just edited the tummy of the shape to fit the mermaid tail. The vendor ad of all the 7DS skins available for free on the hunt is posted below. These skin prizes are BOM and they include shapes and tattoos for Lelutka Evo elf ears as well. 

Mer Detail

☑ Enchanted Forest Hunt ☑ 5 skin boxes WITH shape included hidden in the store

When you add all these parts together, you will have a full bento, mesh, BOM mermaid avatar! Enjoy the mermaid and the orca, FabFree!

Cherish Those Nights when the Moon and the Stars aren’t the Brightest Things in the Sky

Amui

I absolutely love fireworks.  That hasn’t always been the case, I was terrified of them as a child.  I remember looking at them and feeling like they were so close they were going to burn me, I was not pleased.  However, once I got past that it has been one long honeymoon for me and fireworks, for as you know, I love all things colorful and sparkly!  Put that up in the night sky and you’ve made me a happy girl!  I don’t like that they scare pets though.  😦  That part makes me sad.

So here in the states, as most of you know, we celebrate Independence Day.  I feel like this year it stands for more than just one kind of independence.  Partly, a coming out of the pandemic (hopefully!) and partly political for some of us.  That makes it a bit extra happy for me this year.

I wanted to find something extra cute to wear to see the fireworks, and I found this adorbs dress at AMUI who has it for free, no group required (the vendor will ask you for 1L and give it right back, some vendors have to do that).  It fits:

  • Altamura
  • BBL
  • Freya
  • Curvy
  • Kupra
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • V-Tech

It also comes with a HUD so you can choose from 5 festive star spangled patterns for your holiday dress!

Now, my cute little Firework I am holding is from Rabbit House and it is a gacha at SL18B that is only 40L!  They even have wearable fireworks that go off when you walk!  Soooo cute!  SL18B will be there until the 6th so there is still time to hit up this gacha and make yourself festively sparkly!

Happy Independence Day America!

Shopping Makes Me Hungry!

Gothicatz SLB18 Gift

Whew! I did a couple of sims at SLB18 Shop & Hop and I got hungry for something sweet and crunchy. Luckily I found an apple orchard where I could rest my weary tootsies and nom on my au naturelle snack! I also had a “pick-me-up” cuppa java.

Oh Nooo! She’s Wearing Colors Again!

I admit it! I LOVE bold & bright colors. Reds & pinks are my thing. So when I went into unpacking mode I was so excited to find this darling outfit, Tiffany, from Gothicatz as a Free gift. included are a polka dot top & shorts with clown faces (shades of IT?).

Sizes

  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • Freya
  • Venus
  • Iris
  • Maitreya
  • Legacy
  • Tonic Curvy
  • Tone Fine

The Price is Right

This cool laid back summer “do” is yet another Free gift from SLB18 Shop & Hop. Druida, a style from Vanity Hair. It comes with a variety of huds with many colors and variations. The package even contains tintable, Catwa, & Omega hairbases.

Got to run, I need to pick apple bits out of my teeth.

SLB18 & Shop & Hop ends on July 6, so hurry!

Till the next time pretty people!

Head to the Hills

Head to the Hills

It’s time to head for the hills, my dear FabFree peeps!  I’m down for a bit of exploration, a side of adventure, and maybe even a bit of yodeling thrown in for good measure.  I don’t know, it just seems freeing, you know?

Did You Say 500L?

SL18B rages on, and though I’m sure many of you have made the rounds, it’s always nice to get a reminder about the goodies that await on the sprawling 16 sims of madness!  Addams are offering 500L of free store credit – no group join required!  Just click, and boom it will be added to your store credit account.  With the 500L, I picked up this top and shorts which were just 250L each.  Colour me pleased.

Hair, Hair Everywhere!

Coming soon!

Hey gang!

I’ve been visiting the Hair Fair (I think I might possibly kinda sorta have an obsession for hair!), and like the other girls, I too found some awesome super duper faboo freebies for y’all!

Now, since I can model only one hair at a time, I have only included one in the post but fear not!  I found other freebies for you as well, which will undoubtedly show up in other posts.  😉  (natch!)

Lets dive in, shall we?  First off the cute cute hair, this is a free gift (no group required) from Love at the Hair Fair.

The adorbs outfit, this is a new free group gift from Reed (group is free to join and she has a wall of gifties!), it fits:

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

I wish they had hair fairs more often, I kind of have an obsession with hair.  I wish I could change it up in real life as quickly as I do in second life.  That and teleporting.  yes please!  😀

The backdrop is from Tropix, it is a free gift at SL18B which ends very soon so hurry over!  No group required here either.  Just run around and grab goodies!

Hunting for Fairies!

ap_007

So as you are all aware of (or you should be!) the Fab Free Enchanted Forest Hunt is in full swing!  It is a theme I love because I am all about fantasy!  When I do a photo, I feel like I am creating a character and that character has a story!  For instance, my character today has some sort of mystical thing going on, her outfit, her magical sphere, where she is (some secret forest place?).

I know you want all the deets so lets do it.  😉  Both my items can be found in the Fab Free Enchanted Forest Hunt, so get your hunting shoes on (or do it barefoot, Like I do!) and do some hunting!

Fairy Hunting!

My dress is one of five from Ruxy, it fits Matireya and Legacy.  All her hunt gifts are only 1L and all very cute!

My orb/sphere is from Afterparty who makes so much fun glowy stuff.  This is a 5L gift.

How to get them?  Just find the little rainbow fairy hiding in the store (some stores have several!) pay them and they will give you a gift as a thank you for finding them!  Such cute, generous little souls!

Other Yummy Finds

My hair is a freebie from the Hair Fair (goes until July 4!) made by No.Match.  There is no group required to grab the gifts at the Hair Fair!

The little fireflies glowing around my head are a free group gift from Persefona.  That group is free to join and she’s got lots of fun goodies for taking photos at her shop, if you have never been there!

Last the little garden area behind me (not the trees, just the cool colorful part!) is a free SL18B gift (no group required!) from Dreamland Designs!

Sticky Sweet Heat

Sticky Sweet Heat

It’s hot out today where I am – the kind of sticky hot that makes you uncomfortable in pretty much anything you wear.  Luckily, Ms. Aline Passiflora is the unflappable type who can get away with doing insane things like wearing patent leather and latex in 35 degree (Celcius people…Celsius) weather, while nonchalantly holding a handful of sticky candy that by some miracle has not dissolved into an unfortunate goo in her palm.  What can I say, she’s a pretty cool customer…. ahem.

Back to SL18B!

The madness that is SL18B rages on, and there are so many pretty things to show off that I had to put together yet another fun outfit to display my hoardings.  As you may know, SL18B is running until July 6th, and you don’t need a group to get these free gifts, just buy them for 0L.  Here’s what I’m being unflappable in today:

  • FREE top by Stories & Co. (it’s actually half of a bikini…but rules are out the window) sized for Freya, Maitreya, Maitreya Petite,
  • FREE pants by Ison sized for Freya, Legacy & Maitreya
  • FREE shoes by Baiastice sized for Belleza, Kupra, Legacy, Maitreya & Slink
  • FREE gummy bears by Seka with left and right hand hold options

Things may have calmed down a bit (an eensy bit) since it’s been open a few days, so do enjoy!  The above links will get you right to the designer booths, and if you’d like to have the whole list of every shop, you can find it right HERE
