Wicked

Steam Hunt 1

Hello Faboulouses! I don’t know if any of you readers are familiar with the book and musical Wicked, but this post was based on it. The novel’s protagonist, called Elphaba, is based on the wicked witch from the Wizard of Oz. Now I look just like her- witchy green skin and all- except I’m in steampunk attire too! I’ll be showing off this green skin 75 L promo, some more freebies from the steam hunt and a free hair in this post. Buckle up; this is a long one!

More Steam Hunting

I finished the Steam Hunt IV, and this is an outfit I came up with using the goodies from the hunt! I am featuring the free hunt prizes from Razmataz, Prism Designs, Dragon Lady’s Closet, Adele Arts, Pixel Box, Destiny’s Designs, and Sweet Revolutions. The STEAM XV’s grid-wide hunt is free and going on until March 31st- so get out there hunting to get these cool finds!

First off- my outfit is the prize from Destiny’s Designs. The top is a system top I have applied using bakes on mesh (BOM), and the skirt comes in fitmesh and mesh standard sizes (S-XL) which will fit a variety of mesh avatars with some help from your alpha hud. The lantern I am holding is one of five prizes from Pixel Box on the hunt. I also used one of the “Steampunk poses” from Razmataz in this shot.

The gate in behind me is the prize from Sweet Revolutions– it can be rezzed anywhere and be used for landscaping or sim-building- how cool is that!

Steam Hunt 2/Ritual Skin

This dashing hat, which includes a top hat for men as well, is the prize from Dragon Lady’s Closet and you can find these chic boots from the prize box from Prism Designs. Underneath my skirt, I am wearing some lovely omega applier tights which are in the hunt gift from Adele Arts.

Estha & Osha

I stumbled across a promo at Ritual Skins right now, where you can get 2 skins for the low price of 75 Linden. I am currently wearing the BOM version of the skin, but it also comes with a number of head appliers, body appliers, ear appliers and omega if you haven’t switched over to BOM yet. The skin comes in 2 shades: Estha and Osha, and you can wear the skin with freckles, without freckles and with black or white brows. I am currently wearing Estha. The skin can be worn as part of a fantasy outfit and the duo even includes elf or faerie ears. The shade of both skins is green, and it’s really beautiful. It reminds me of the character Elphaba from the book and musical Wicked, which I love. This green skin duo will be 75L until Midnight SLT on Friday, March 27th. As far as I know, there will be a weekly promo at Ritual for this prize so keep an eye out- especially if you love fantasy skins.

It isn’t easy being green, especially when you don’t have much hair to match your own skin in your inventory. Luckily Firelight! still has their free group gift out from March 2019 which is a beautiful long and green hairstyle for women. There’s a whole bunch of other gifts to grab while you’re there too! There’s even a brand new green hairstyle to match this skin!

Thanks for reading, Fab Free!

A Free & Fun Gear Game Sim-Wide Hunt!

A Free & Fun Gear Game Sim-Wide Hunt!

Hey Fab Free! Did you know that the Steam Hunt is going on right now? It is a super fun hunt which on for the whole month of March. It is one of the longest-running hunts in SL and it’s also the only steampunk-themed hunt left on the grid. Yesterday I did some hunting at the Steam Expo, where there is a sim-wide hunt game. All of the free décor gifts shown here are hunt prizes you can get from this gear hunt game.

The Gear Game

The Steam Hunt/Expo’s gear hunt game is really fun! What you do is teleport to the start location of the hunt where you will grab a gear games HUD on the wall. Unpack the HUD and attach it to your screen. Now you will run around all over the expo sim and look for the bronze coloured gears, and click them with your HUD on. The bronze or copper-coloured gears will give you points, and if you click silver gears that will take away your points- so don’t click the silver ones! The gears just pop up randomly, so look all around!  You want to accumulate as many points as you can and you can check your point count on the HUD.

Points for Prizes

Once you have lots of points, you can exchange them for prizes. Each prize costs from 1 to 30 points each, and it is quite easy to win enough points to get all the prizes around the sim. In different creators’ booths around the sim, there will be writing in yellow over the prizes which states how many points each one costs. The HUD and the game is completely free to play, so whatever prizes you get will be a free addition to your inventory. There are 35 prizes in total that I could find.

Steam Hunt XV Store-Wide Hunt

Note that the gears game hunt is a sim-wide hunt in addition to their grid-wide hunt. The gears game hunt featured in this blog post is part of the hunt, but they have a larger grid-wide hunt too! So there are basically two hunts part of the Steam XV Expo/Hunt event this month. If you want to do their grid-wide hunt please visit the Historical Hunt Ltd. website for a list of stores. The hunt prizes are available to find until March 31st. The grid-wide hunt is also a 0L, completely free hunt.

Have fun hunting, Fab Free!

Two if By Sea


Two if by Sea

Captain’s Log: The Nineteenth of March, Year Unknown
My Co-Captain and I set sail for an uncharted destination just a few days ago. Today, for the first time, we found land. Our steam ship ran aground in an unfamiliar location. Where, or even when our time travels have brought us, we cannot be certain. All that is certain is that we found our adventure, and we look absolutely smashing while doing so.

Hello Fab Free’rs! Welcome back to the blog, I promise you haven’t stumbled over a strange steam punk novella. I was just having a little fun with some of the fantastic Seam Hunt prizes my guy and I gathered. His hat, and our amazing jackets are free Seam Hunt prizes. In addition to the hunt freebies, I picked up an incredibly detailed free steam paddle boat that was just too cool to not share with you. I hope you enjoy these fabulous finds, and maybe even go on an adventure or two of your own.

The Hat – I think bowler style hats are really cool for steam punk attire. This particular Steam Hunt gift hat by Miss Darcy has some extra steamy details, both literally and figuratively. This cool hat has a “steam” effect that comes from the wheel handle on top of the hat when worn, not to mention the goggles which complete the look. You have until March 31st to hunt down the little brown cog and claim your free gift.

The Coat – I still cannot get over the gorgeous details of these tailcoats by Contraption. This coat comes in male and female mesh sizes, and includes a cummerbund applier, as well as a system layer cummerbund. Additionally there is a color change hud that lets you change the color of the ascot/scarf and the little pin in the center of the scarf. Lastly, each of the sizes has an additional “bound” option for a corseted look. The best part is that this highly detailed piece is Contraption’s free Steam Hunt prize.

Sizes Included: Belleza Freya, Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass, Slink Male, Signature (Geralt, Gianni), Belleza Jake

The Spirit of Adventure

The Steam Paddle Boat – Believe it or not this ultra cool vessel is not only completely free, it has full permissions. I stumbled across this awesome freebie while exploring sims. This free boat can be found at the Alpha Tribe sim. Simply pay the boat 0 linden and you’ll find a copy of it in the objects folder of your inventory. Along with being cool to look at, this steam paddle boat has some animated parts, and 2 sit poses. There is a single pose at the steering wheel, and one up top at the organ. Lastly, since this freebie has full permissions, you can customize it however you like.

P.S. If you dig Blue’s waxed mustache, it’s a freebie too! You can pick it up for free at Kauna. Afterall, dapper gentleman would be complete without one.

Here are the details, may you have happy adventures!

The Hunt for Morris

The Hunt for Morris

Hey Hey Fab Free!  I’m waxing a bit nostalgic today because I did a bit of hunting on the Steam Hunt!  The Steam Hunt is one of the oldest in SL, and it is actually the first hunt I ever did.  My friend Eesoov introduced me to the concept of wandering sims keeping your peepers peeled to find little objects for freebies, and I’ve been hooked ever since.  The Steam Hunt is always filled with fun curios and cute outfits, and this year’s edition is no exception!

Steam Me Up!

One of the stops on the Steam Hunt this year is Sparrow by Design – a super cute art nouveau decorated shop that has all sorts of cute gifties hanging about.  I hunted for the little cog, and inside was this gorgeous Morris & Co. inspired coat dress that I knew I immediately needed to own.  I have a thing for British textiles in general (don’t get me started on Liberty prints), and this is a really beautiful SL version of one of my faves.  The best part is this coat is completely free, all you need to spend is a bit of time searching for it!  The clue is:

Green butterflies are my favourite!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Venus

Well-Heeled

There’s a new group gift over at Mosquito’s Way!  They regularly churn out some really amazing gifts (and shoes in general), so this is a group to join and stay in!  Just join their group for FREE and click on the vendor and these sweet little booties are all yours.  I totally love them.   These shoes are sized for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink for all your delicate stomping needs!

Who’s up for some more hunting?

Let’s Have an Adventure

Adventure

Have an adventure Fab Free! At the very least, a shopping spree. That’s what you’ll feel like after you see the room full of group gifts at Lavain&Co. Yes, you read that right, there is a gift room and the number of gifts is honestly almost overwhelming! One of the several items I picked up for myself at the Lavain&Co. women’s gift room is this sleek stylish one-piece suit. This is the sort of sophisticated look that never goes out of style. The gift is called “Big in Japan” and it includes several standard mesh sizes, as well as alpha layers. This means it’s suitable for mesh and classic avatars. That said, the Lavain&Co. VIP group does have a hefty one-time join fee of 499 lindens. However, if you like the chic style, the fee is well worth the instant access to the abundance of group gifts.

Speaking of chic style, these cute blue pumps from ChicChica are a FREE group gift at Cosmopolitan Sales Room. The shoes are a pretty dark blue with a lace-like overlay pattern, and they come in Slink high and a Maitreya fit. To get these great shoes by ChicChica for yourself, just join the Cosmopolitan Club & Lounge group and click the gift vendor. Don’t wait, they’ll be gone as soon as the current round of Cosmo Sales Room ends. The Cosmopolitan Club & Lounge group is also FREE to join.

Lastly, to add a little something extra to this already pretty outfit, I put on the Steam Hunt gift from Hudson’s. This FREE hunt prize is a simple yet elegant pair of detailed nautical themed pendants on a thin black cord. This FREE necklace comes in a short and a long version, and both can be re-sized. Even with the somewhat floral and lace patterns present in the clothing and shoes, I think the blue lends it’s self to the nautical aspect of the necklace. If you like the necklace it’s well worth the effort of hunting it down at the Hudson’s main location.

Steam Punk Princess

Steam Punk Close There’s a fun underwater-steam-punk themed grid-wide hunt happening for the month of March. Steam: The Hunt “Realms of The Deep” started March 1st and continues through the end of the month. The Steam Hunt is a FREE hunt, simply find the hidden gear, and click it to get your prize. I had a lot of fun playing dress-up with some of the items I found on the hunt, I think you will too! I also picked up the March group gift at ECCO because the dainty little crown was too cute to pass up and it looks adorable with this playful steam punk outfit.

I also picked up this cute little crown at ECCO. The crown is the March group gift at ECCO, and I think it looks super cute with this steam punk outfit. The crown gift includes a color change hud that allows you to choose between 6 different colors for the accent roses on the crown. To get this gift, head to the ECCO main store, pay the one time join fee of 200 lindens, and claim your group gift.

The little hooded jacket, ruffled corset, and striped skirt are all part of the female gift at Snowpaws. There’s a male gift included in the folder as well. The FREE Steam Hunt gift at Snowpaws includes several mesh sizes for easy fitting. Each piece can be worn separately as well as together. I love the playful feel of this look, it’s cute and has that steam-punk vibe without being over-the-top. With the right shoes I think you could take this outfit from fantasy and role play to something more urban everyday.

Speaking of shoes, these boots from Lindy Modern are one of two pairs you’ll get as your FREE Steam Hunt prize. The boots are highly detailed and include alpha layers. There’s no need for mesh feet to wear these boots from Lindy Modern, they fit mesh and classic avatars. I think these boots would also be cute with a solid colored top and jeans, for a fun modern look with a steam punk edge.
Steam Punk Next stop on my hunting spree is Park Place. The Steam Hunt prize at Park Place is this gigantic book case complete with male and female poses. It also has a giant aquarium in the center that is sure to make you feel like you’re deep under the ocean waves. This FREE Steam Hunt gift at Park Place was too large for my little laptop to get a full sized clear photo of it, so I included an ad from Park Place below.

Here are the details, Happy Hunting!
