I Used to Sail the Deep and Tranquil Sea

Pirate Life For Me
Ahoy There Fab Free Mateys! I hope everyone is doing well. Thanks to the Skull n Bones Hunt, I’ve spent the last day in pirate gear, and I’m not at all mad about it! Kastle Rock Couture has this playful pirate outfit as their Skull n Bones Hunt prize for the ladies. I also read all about the hunt happening at This Is Wrong from Alison’s post “Follow Me Down to the Water.” So of course, I had to participate in that! This red full body tattoo is one of the several 30L items you’ll find. I hope you like this fantasy pirate look as much as I do!

The Outfit – When I say outfit, I mean outfit. This Skull n Bones Hunt prize from Kastle Rock comes with the boots, the skirt, the top, and the hat. There is also a matching men’s pirate outfit. You’ll find this 2 linden hunt prize is on the Rum Runner path of the Skull n Bones hunt. The prize is just 2 linden, and you’ll be searching for a little red starfish. The skirt and top also come in a “risque” version which is slightly transparent. The shoes and hat come in a single size, and there is an alpha layer with the boots. P.S. This outfit is suitable for Classic Avatars!
Hint – “I’m stuck in limbo between Mens and mini dresses, at least there are places to sit… Maybe I’ll have a glass of wine. ”
Skirt & Top Sizes Included: Classic (xxs – L), Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Maitreya Lara, TMP, Tonic (Fine, Curvy), eBody (top only)

The Tattoo – This is the last day of the 30L hunt at This is Wrong! To find the items just click the vendors and look for the items marked 30 linden. I picked up a few things, but there are several items marked down, including some for the guys. I love a good full-body tattoo. This one is not only full body, but has face appliers for Catwa and Lelutka, and comes in fresh and faded versions. Also, check out the Lucky Letter boards while you are there. There’s no group needed for those!
Body Appliers Included: Maitreya, Belleza, Slink, TMP

Here are the details, enjoy!

In the Cool of the Pool

In the Cool of the Pool
Hello again Fab Free’rs. I’m happy to see you. Truth be told I couldn’t think of a better way for this would be mermaid to spend the afternoon than floating in the cool of the pool under the shade of a palm tree. Speaking of mermaids, the Makeover Room gift from Entice is very mermaid-y. I know that’s not a word, but I couldn’t find a better way to describe this cute gift. Also, I found the perfect summery pink pout at Pout!. I went ahead and included the vendor ads for each of these free gifts so you can see the colors and options. Keep reading for the where and the how.

The Dress – Honestly, I’m not sure if this blue and purple gradient little dress with the pretty scalloped edges is a dress, a swimsuit cover, or what, but I like it a lot. Wear it how you please, this versatile gift is a free gift for Makeover Room group members. In addition to this pretty one-piece version, there is a two piece bikini style top and skirt version. Both are equally cute and equally revealing, especially the skirt. This free Makeover Room group gift from Entice comes in several sizes. To get yours head over to the Makeover Room and join the free-to-join Makeover Room group. The gift is waiting at the entrance to the event space.

Mesh Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass, Belleza (Isis, Freya)

The Pout – Where else but Pout! would have just the right pink lipstick applier?! Pout! has a lipstick applier set as their current group gift (there are past gifts also available for 1 linden). The free “Bubble pop” lipstick set has 5 lip colors in several applier options. The Pout! group is free to join at this time. You’ll find the Pout! group gift to the left as you enter the store.

Not Ready for Cold Weather

I wear short skirts_001

Not ready for cold weather…

I’m not ready for cold weather. It got nippy here where I live and then the weather warmed up yesterday and it prompted me to look for warmer clothes in Second Life too. So I was really pleased when I saw that Kom‘s November group gift was this really pretty (and versatile) short skirt. It comes in all your favorite body sizes and includes a color change hud with 7 colors to choose from as well. I was partial to this teal color which I paired with a blueberry gift top that I blogged a while back that you can now get on the marketplace for just 1L.

Skirt sizes available:

  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Something pretty

I wanted a little something extra to go with my outfit so I stopped by The Forge to see what was available. Sometimes in-store gachas hold sweet surprises. I discovered the Boadicea’s Necklaces and really liked the celtic look and fine detailing on them. I gave the 50L gacha a spin and pulled one of the commons in “rust” which matched my outfit very nicely. The rares were quite beautiful as well and would be worth a few extra pulls to try to nab one at just 50L per spin.

The Softer Side of Wednesday

Evani
Happy Halloween Fabulouses!

Normally Wednesdays child is full of woe, and this is how the dark natured little Addams girl got her famous name, but I decided to soften her up for Halloween a little bit by lightening up her locks, wearing her basic collared dress, but in a shorter, sweet little floral print.   I then subbed out the dismal black stockings and flat maryjanes for some plum frilled ankle socks and strapped heels!  I think…  she might even be cracking a little smile, or is she just plotting something again?!

Trick or Treat at EVANI!

What inspired my look today was the floral dress!  This is actually set out as a free Halloween gift at EVANI – simply priced at 0L!   The really great thing about this Halloween gift is that it could be worn any time of the year ;).

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya & Isis

Have fun today everyone, enjoy that candy (totally craving a caramel apple, myself!) and stay safe!

What Do You Mean You Are “Out of Candy”?

Nocandy

In my last house, we used to get about 100 kids around for Halloween and it was one crazy night trying to balance giving out candy and taking my own kids out to get candy! I was always afraid I was going to run out and someone was going to come back with a vengeance.  I never did run out lol, but the fear was real!  Now, in my current house, I’ll be lucky to get 15 kids – and you can bet those kids will be loaded up! (Mostly so I don’t eat it myself).

Vengeance Girl

My vengeance girl look today is put together with the blood splattered Giselle Gown that you can pick up as a free group gift at Just Because with a free group join.  The Giselle Gown is actually a really pretty design that I have purchased it previously (without the blood) for formal affairs – this is perfect for Halloween!  You might as well grab all the gifts on the wall behind the reception desk after you have joined – they are all fabulous!

Sizes included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza Freya, Isis & Venus

Sunday Fun in the Sun

Beer Palm
Alright Fab Free, who has backyard pool or a beach side bungalow I can invade? I’ve got my swimsuit, sunnies, and a blow-up palm tree full of beer. It’s Sunday fun-day and I can’t think of a better way to spend one of the last weekends of the summer than relaxing next to the water with some friends. You can gear up for the end of summer too with these fun FREE gifts.

Palm Cooler

In all honesty I don’t often drink beer, but this summer group gift from Nomad was just too fun to pass up. The Nomad group is FREE to join, and there are several past gifts still available. Best of all this blow-up palm tree is not only FREE, it not only looks cool, but it will also hand out beer when clicked. The beer cans have a basic drinking animation. All in all, I think this gift from Nomad is the perfect addition to any pool party or afternoon at the beach.

Be Real
Be Real

I love this cute one-piece swimsuit by Queenz. Most of all I love the positive message. I find those that are just themselves to be the most attractive people. The swimsuit is part of the most recent group gift at Queenz. The gift includes this version, one in blue, and a third yellow swimsuit with the Queenz logo. Each of the suits come in several mesh sizes. The Queenz group is FREE to join, and there is one other group gift still available also.

Mesh Sizes Included: Slink (Physique, Hourglass) / Maitreya Lara / Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus)

Must Have Sunglasses

Finally, these sunglasses are the latest group gift at HEC and I love them. The HEC group is FREE to join. I was really excited to find out just how detailed the color change hud included with these glasses is. There is even a photo guide included in the package so you will know exactly how to use all the customization features. Not only can you change the individual parts to any color you want, you can adjust things like glow and lens opacity. Also, these sunglasses from HEC come in 2 versions, one with a rainbow effect lens (shown) and one with a regular lens. Also, when resizing you will need to be on a pose stand. If you don’t have one, there’s one provided with this awesome FREE gift. To get your copy just wear your HEC group tag and pay the gift vendor 1 linden. The gift will be delivered and you will be instantly refunded 1 linden.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Hello Summer!

Luda_001

Hello, Summer! I’m so glad we met! Especially since you’re a fun, easy hunt with 10 prizes, each for only 1L at Brii Underground! Each prize is a complete outfit with shoes to fit Slink feet and Omega applier make-up for Catwa heads! It’s a deal you can’t really beat — one stop… 10 Linden… 10 full outfits! The Hello Summer Hunt lasts until August 31st at Brii Underground. I’m going to give you a peek at three of the outfits I found while hunting as well as a couple of other group gifts I picked up recently.

Pretty in Blue

Luda is this pretty blue dress as part of the Hello Summer Hunt that you can get for just 1L at Brii’s Underground right now. You get the full outfit with shoes and make up.

Dress sizes included:

  • Standard sizes XXS – L
  • TMP
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Luda_002

A bit of whimsy

For a nautical touch I stopped by Chop Zuey because they creator has set out some new gifts. I love these two free to all gifts that are currently out… the She Sells She Shells Necklace and Earrings set. You can get them at the free to all gift area by the fountain. The necklace has an assortment of charms and the earrings (almost hidden by my hair) are the little blue and white life preservers. These are well worth picking up.

Lucy_001

Dazzle Me.

Another outfit from Brii’s Underground Hello Summer Hunt that I really liked (again it’s yours for just 1L and a little hunting time… you’re looking for a little palm tree!), was this Lucy outfit pictured above. It too, comes with the full kit and caboodle… outfit, make-up, and shoes for slink feet. I added a pair of bracelets from my inventory, but you can accessorize however you like.

Outfit sizes available:

  • Standard sizes XS – XL
  • Fitmesh XS – XL
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza

Karolina_001

Watercolor winner.

This dress called Karolina, pictured above, reminds me of a beautiful watercolor painting, and I couldn’t resist showing it off to you. I wish the shoes were not hidden by the skirt, as they are beautiful too. Again, for just 1L at Brii’s Underground you get this as part of the Hello Summer Hunt (full outfit – dress, make-up, and shoes).

Dress sizes available:

  • Standard sizes XS – XL
  • Fitmesh sizes XS – XL
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink
  • Belleza

Karolina_002

Something colorful.

I paired my pretty watercolor dress with something colorful from Chop Zuey. This group gift necklace called Warlock is a men’s gift, but I was easily able to size it to fit my female avatar. It works nicely for men or women either one. It has a silver pendant with a color change bead (I included a photo below of the hud to show you the options) all on a black cord.

The group is 350L to join, but currently there are gifts out for both men and women (and the men’s gift is very unisex in my opinion as you can see), and the creator is generous with regular gifts, making this group well worth joining.

Happy Hello Summer hunting. I hope you find all 10 outfits at Brii’s Underground! And enjoy the gifts at Chop Zuey. Until my next post, enjoy your day!

Goth Garage Sale Hunt Accessories

More Goth Garage Sale
Hi hi Fab Free’rs! I’m back with a few more of the hunt prizes at the Goth Garage Sale. If you’re in need of a few good Goth accessories or maybe the perfect pair of chucks, this post is for you! The above photo should have been dated circa 1998 or so, because this look has me feelin’ some ’90s fashion nostalgia. haha As I’d mentioned in my previous post about the Goth Garage Sale hunt, you’ll be hunting little black cats with glowing yellow eyes. They are hidden (some more than others) around the Goth Garage Sale event and are just 5 linden each. Don’t forget, this event and the hunt will end August 8th.
Goth Garage Sale Hunt Close

Abyssal Beast Ring

I seem to recall that creepy cool rings being popular about the time I was graduating high school. It makes sense that they would be making a come-back. This Abyssal Beast ring is the Goth Garage Sale hunt prize by Venge. With sprawling black tentacles and a bright green eye, it’s an excellent goth accessory.

Koffin Nails

Lately I have rediscovered my love of nail polish. No goth look would be complete without a darkly beautiful manicure. The pretty black and red nail polish Pru is wearing comes courtesy of Dark Passions. Their Goth Garage Sale hunt item is a goth themed manicure and pedicure applier set. The set includes 6 color options each with the little black coffin with the crescent moon.

Appliers Included: Slink, Omega, Maitreya

Familiar Necklace

Another of my favorites from the Goth Garage Sale hunt is this unisex Familiar Necklace by The Little Bat. I love the idea of having a familiar, I’d like to think mine would be a bat, or maybe a crow. This pretty necklace with its thin black chain and little pagan star comes with a texture change hud that will let you choose from 10 different black and white animal familiar photos to display in the pendant.

Eternal Heart

Call it a collar or a choker, I really like this Goth Garage Sale hunt prize from Senzafine. The aptly named Eternal Heart Choker comes in the black and red color shown with the cute heart dangle and heart shaped ring. It’s the perfect combination of goth and sweet.

Doodle Chucks

To be perfectly honest I wasn’t sure I was going to like these Doodle Chucks by Oubliette at first. Then I tried them on! I love the playful little scribbles and doodles on the black canvas of the Goth Garage Sale hunt prize shoes. They do not appear to be meant for any specific mesh feet, however the note card that came with the gift says they are unrigged and can be modded to fit Slink, Maitreya, and Venus flat feet. I had no problem wearing them with my Maitreya feet. I didn’t need to stretch or size them at all, just move them a little. Now I want to wear them with everything!

Ice Cream Break

IceCream Break

Surely there’s always time to stop for ice cream when you’re at the beach! If you stop by Baja Shore, there is an ice cream stand that you can click for a variety of holdable free ice cream props in different colors and different varieties of “scoops.” I opted for the yellow parfait dish with three scoops of my favorite flavors!

Bathing beauty

Paisley Daisy has out a lovely new June group gift to pick up that will have you headed for the beach to have your ice cream and eat it too. This two piece swim suit has a vintage feel with its crochet-like texture and it comes in a luscious red.

Sizes included:

  • Standard mesh XXS – L
  • TMP
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Stop for a tattoo

It’s been a while since I sported any tattoos. I don’t usually don ink. But I stopped by Inhale tattoo shop and picked up one of their past group gifts (there are several out) to add to my look. The group is free to join, making all their gifts free too. They are all unisex as well, and come in multiple appliers for different mesh bodies. This one is called “Inspire” and as well as the pretty arm design the word “inspire” appears on your avatar’s hand as well as a little anchor on the top of your finger. (I didn’t get a close up but you can zoom in to see in Flickr.)

Appliers included:

  • System
  • Signature
  • Belleza
  • Physique
  • Slink
