Siren Song

Siren Song

Heyya FabFam! Well… I held out as long as I could, but the beach was calling me. Then I saw these great prizes for the High Tides and Good Vibes Hunt… I just couldn’t resist any longer. I’m off to the beach to listen to the call of the water and waves.

Ari – Pari, as always, has given us a knock out prizes for the Hunt with this sweet itty bitty bikini. This is the Tamara Bikini and you can grab it for just 1L and a little searching. Trust the hint, it will lead you straight to the little sea shell you’re looking for. The bikini comes with a HUD for ten colors to choose from and you can color the top and bottoms separately.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Kupra
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique

My rocky perch can also be found on the Hight Tides and Good Vibes Hunt. “Her Vibe” is a beautifully textured stand of rocks with three poses loaded in by Something New. I picked the beach to stand them up on but they would be equally at home in the deserts or rocky mountain sides. The poses are very well made and can be adjusted if needed. While you need to hunt the shell down to get this prize it will cost 25L. A bit more but it’s well worth the price.

No Sign of Eleven

The Upside Down

Hey gang,

As everyone dons their Easter best, here is me in all my dark INFP-ish-ness lost someplace looking for the Upside Down.  Now if you have ever watched Stranger Things, you know that the Upside Down is much more Halloween-ish and not at all Easter-ish.  You’ll find no fluffy bunnies here.

However!

In second life you can find an event called The Upside Down and at that event you can find many little 10L goodies.  Like this metallic blue hoodie from Indigenous (you simply cannot go exploring without your best metallic blue hoodie!), and this backdrop from Something New.  Both items are 10L and there is no group required.  The hoodie comes with a matching top and  fits:

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Kupra
  • Curvy
  • Legacy & Perky
  • Maitreya & Petite
  • Hourglass

This event continues until the 30th of April, so you do have time, but why wait, go enjoy yourself!  It’s a fun theme.

Oh and Happy Easter and Passover y’all!  Feel free to send me some Cadbury Creme Eggs if you are feeling generous.  😉

Killer Rabbit of Caerbannog

EBP 12 Hunt 2022 4

I was out & about hunting Easter eggs since it is that time of the year. There was this HUGE rabbit with a pile of really pretty eggs so I grabbed a few. Little did I know I’d awakened the Killer Rabbit of Caerbannog! Shades of Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

You think someone should put a sign near him? One does have to be careful when roaming the sims of SL. Maybe I’ll buy a guidebook next time.

Good or Bad? Have it Either Way

The Evil Bunny Hunt 12 kicked off on April 3rd. It’ll run until April 30th. Some of the participating designers have a “Nice” egg; others have an “Evil” egg while a few have both eggs. All of the eggs are priced at $1L.

I hopped on over to [M]elange to search for both eggs. Once found I had a major decision to make: Angelic (Nice) or Devil!cious (Evil)? Being evil can be so much fun. Especially when you have a very sexy outfit.

Devil!cious is a complete outfit consisting of a top, thong, sleeves, horns, 2 tails, hoof boots, and a pitchfork. One of the tails is a “micro mesh” but I opted for the longer mesh tail. The hoof boots are really cute & fun to wear. You can’t go wrong with this outfit costing only $1L.

Sizes

  • Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Ebody Classic & Curvy
  • Maitreya
  • Slink HG & Physique

Posing

Another stop on the Evil Bunny Hunt 12 is Something New. Both an Evil & a Nice egg are hiding in the store. Since I was being Evil today I chose that prize egg. The Evil Bunny! Run! pose makes me giggle. In addition to the scene you get a carrot to munch on and a basket to put all your eggs in.

Free the Mind: Imagination Vibrations

Monarchs Kingdom

Second Life is about imagination.  We can do things, see things, BE things in Second Life that we can only dream about.  It’s a fantasy world where we each get to be a star.

Monarchs Kingdom is not a store.  They are a performance dance troupe, and you can attend their live shows or watch their videos here.  So how, you ask, did they end up on the FabFree blog???

Each month, their creator, Royal Shippe, places a group gift of decor out for free.  Royal isn’t any ordinary dance designer, he’s won awesome awards like the Avichoice Performance Artist of the Year.  The gifts are elaborate set pieces from the many awesome shows he’s created.  They are 100% original.

The April gift (called the Megapack Holo Trees & Humanoid Statues) is pictured above includes a whole set of large and small holographic trees in a variety of colors and this sculpture called Corellia (which comes with a mirror).  I paired the set with a post set from Something New called Dress Me Again that is currently available at Cheeky Wow for a sweet 50L!!!

If you love backdrops as much as I do, you will LOVE the monthly gifts.

Every month you can pop in and get a new set!!!  Stick around for Christmas, because the advent daily calendar was unbelievable.  And the price?  FREE!!!!  The group isfree; the gifts are free.

Rumor has it that a Star Wars production is in the works and dates will be announced soon.  I CAN’T WAIT!!!!

The War is in Color

No War & Why Her?

“Now I lay in my grave at age 21

Long before you were born

Before I bore a son

What good did it do?

Well hopefully for you

A world without war

A life full of color.” 

The War Was in Color, Carbon Leaf

Our hearts ache for our Ukrainian friends.  In SL, we all probably know someone directly impacted by the horrors of the Russian-Ukrainian war. We feel helpless; they might feel hopeless. How do we help?

This newest couples pose from Something New struck me as being entirely appropriate for these aching times.  “Why Her?” is available for L100 at the Pose Event running until April 19th.

On the same day I picked up the pose, No.Match released their recent charity hairstyle, No_War.  The hair is beautiful, and 100% of the proceeds go to Ukrainian Aid efforts.  I not only bought my customary blonde pack for 50L, but then went on and bought the fatpack (of colors I will never wear) for 200L.  The braids can be worn with or without the “Dandelion” add-on of blue and yellow ribbons and flowers.

No War & Why Her?

We feel so helpless in real life to help our Ukrainian friends.  We can’t go help; we can’t provide a warm bed or a comforting hug.  But, what we CAN do is remember them daily.  Honor them daily.  Wear their colors of blue and yellow.  Fly their flag.

Innocent people are dying, and even if we can only stand up virtually, let’s stand together for peace. Create scenes like this one to remind us that this war, like all wars, is in color.

While you are there, pick up their 10L pose, “Tune My Piano.”  There are four OTHER musical poses (singles and couples with fancy musical props!!) in the stand ranging from 50L -100L.  These deals are DEFINITELY worth a road trip.  Caroline, Arielle, Juli and I had a blast playing with the poses and adding props!

Celebrating the Thinking Women of SL

Celestina's Wedding, Something New, @ International Women's Day
March 8th was International Women’s Day, and the Grid was full of lovely gifts celebrating women.  Celestina’s Weddings had this beautiful gown for group members.  I am not sure how long the gown will be available, so run QUICKLY (in heels?!) to get it.  But, if not, don’t worry, your trip won’t be wasted, as there are amazingly stunning group gifts waiting for you.

The Group cost is 50L, and the gifts are legit nice with surprises like this gown, the Solstice Pearl Gown in Pink, offered up for special occasions.

The scene is the latest from my favorite pose shop, Something New.  It’s called “Once a Thinker. Always.” and comes with poses built into the set.  It is really cool and different, so, of COURSE, I had to have it!!!  You can get just the prop or the prop and poses at EBP Twe12ve for 200L.
