Carnival

Hello and Happy Friday FabFree!

Carnival

I am loving the gothic creepy vibe of the Carnival of Souls Hunt this year. Halloween can’t come soon enough for me and this hunt has got me ready for trick or treating in August. Too early? Maybe a little….  anyways…

This is the ‘Raquel’ outfit from Sweet Intoxications and it’s the 1L prize for the hunt. That one little linden will get you the top and the pants and the ribbon choker AND the fantastic shoes. Each piece is separate and the choker is resizable for a great fit. The top comes in Fitmesh sizes XS-XL plus Belleza, Maitreya and SLink appliers. The pants come in those same appliers plus an Omega applier and a classic system pants layer. And these shoes! Love ’em.  The shoes are for SLink High Feet.

Strapped

Monday Greetings, FabFree,

Strapped

The look I’m showing you today is something different from my usual style. But Julianna is ‘encouraging’ me to branch out. (Read here : Twisting my arm) At any rate…  today I’m showing you the ‘Hector’ Strapped shirt from Sweet Intoxication. This unusual shirt is the 1L prize for the Light Up the Night Hunt. Hector comes in the standard Mesh sizes XS-L and has a good alpha layer. If this shirt catches your fancy, it is available in several other colors at the regular price in the main store.

My trousers today are the premier of This is Wrong’s men’s group gifts. I always applaud designers and shops as they expand into men’s wear and this is a very nice addition to that group. The ‘Worker Pants’ come in Fitmesh sizes S-L. However I did discover I needed an alpha layer to get the perfect fit. But it was an easy fix with any one of several standard pants alpha layer from my inventory.  The color and details of the Worker Pants are spot on and I look forward to This is Wrong’s next men’s wear offering.

I remain most sincerely yours,
Gabe's Signiture

S-Trapped in My Blue Skull

S-Trapped In My Blue Skull

It’s always nice when a great store like Sweet Intoxication includes the fellas in their group gifts. I was checking out the hunt scene when I stopped over by the Sweet Intoxication main-store. They have a really nice ladies gift out, but of course that just wasn’t my style (unless you all want to see me in a pair of cute capris some time?), but they did have out this really great men’s Strapped Blue Skull shirt. The group is FREE to join and after that you only need to pay 1L for the shirt. So you get the gift for a total of just 1L. A great deal for a quality clothing item.

The shirt comes in all the standard mesh sizes and has the nice detailing of the buckled, black straps on it. I took a picture of the back of the shirt so you could see why it was called “blue skull”. There is, of course, a blue skull on the upper back in the styling of the shirt.

Princess Peach

Time for Tea Hello Hello Fab Free! I am very excited to show you these deliciously girly gacha goodies. An event called YouGatcha started April 1, and there are lots of fun inexpensive gachas to be played. If there is a theme to this event or the current round, I’m uncertain as to what it is. There are several amazing designers participating however, and wide variety of loot to be played for. Among the many designers participating in YouGatcha this month are Sweet Intoxication, and Tantalum.
Pretty in Peach It’s true I have really eclectic taste and in one form or another I like a little bit of everything. That said, there’s a part of my style personality adores ultra girly things, and especially pretty peachy pastel colors that are so popular right now. Pretty pastels are definitely on the menu in the form of cute heels and even cuter dresses when you play the Sweet Intoxication gacha machine at YouGatcha. The dress Pru is wearing comes in 3 lovely pastel shades, and there are matching heels to be had. Each dress comes in standard mesh sizes, and Slink, Belleza, and Maitreya fit. Also part of this gacha are these fun heels. Each pair of heels includes a Slink fit, Belleza fit, and TMP fit. Additionally the rare in this gacha is a necklace to create a complete look. As you can see from the photos, this dress is a perfect combination of sexy and girly, not to mention just short enough to be dangerous! The Sweet Intoxication gacha at YouGatcha is  75 lindens per play.

As I mentioned, Tanatalum is also participating in YouGatcha this month. They actually have 3 gacha machines, each with quality jewelry pieces. Pru played the good girl gacha from Tantalum at YouGatcha. This machine is 45 lindens per play and has a wide range of “mouth charms” each with cute adjectives one might use to describe a “good girl”. Pru got “Flirty” which is really beyond perfect for this look. It’s the very definition of flirty.

I really had fun with this look, I hope you like it! Here are the details, Enjoy!

Hair – enVOGUE – HAIR Leticia – Diversity

Skin – [theSkinnery] Maddie (Catwa Skin Applier) champagne

Kiss Me, Don’t Pinch me!

Kiss Me 1

The “Hey! No Pinchin!” Hunt seemed like the perfect time to introduce you to my Alter Ego! Meet Me! (Cue my male alt Loki waving at the camera😉 ) But it’s also a great chance for me to show off these fun matching hunt gifts from Sweet Intoxication!

Just 1L gift gets you these perfectly-awesome-ready-for-St.-Patrick’s-Day outfits in one box! So take a guy friend and go rock these! They come in all the standard sizes with a top and pants for both the guys and gals. If you don’t want to hunt you can get the items for 25L instead at the sign.

Kiss Me 2

Here’s a close up of the matched tops, which are just too fab not to strut around in for at least one day of the Green Holiday!

Do hurry though! The Hey! No Pinchin! Hunt ends March 16!

Calypso Kisses

Calypso Kisses

There’s something sensual about black and gold… and when I found the Chop Zuey gift for the Twisted Hunt called The Chains of Calypso I thought of the legendary story of the goddess on the island. Her story was one both of beauty and of tragedy. But aren’t all the great stories that way?

If you go to Chop Zuey this amazing set, complete with its necklace, earrings, and cuff bracelets, is yours FREE as part of the Twisted Hunt. As always, you are getting amazing Chop Zuey quality. It is a not-to-be-missed set of jewelry for your wardrobe.

I knew I needed something perfect to pair this amazing set with, and I found just the right sultry number at Sweet Intoxication, where I picked up this creator’s FREE Twisted Hunt gift also. The Kisses dress in black and gold is bold and yet somehow also understated… both casual and dressy at the same time. It comes in all the standard sizes, as well as Maitreya, SLink, and Belleza fits.

If you find that spinning cube at Sweet Intoxication, there is also a FREE men’s jacket inside the box as well. Just as a head’s up, the men’s gift is made for the Aesthetic men’s mesh avatar specifically, so there is no alpha included, and it will only fit that avatar.

Party At Gabriel, Attendance Is Man-datory!

whc Gabriel blue denim

LOL! Sometimes, I title these posts just to give my lovely editor, Andi, a reason to roll her eyes. I am sure many of you can feel her pain. Now, to the matter at hand: Gabriel (a clothing store of considerable renown) has given its loyal customers and the residents of Second Life joining its free group an incredible Christmas gift! Every group member receives a free 500L gift card to be used for the purchase of men’s clothing. With this, you can choose from a large variety of sharp, fashionable clothing from casual to formal. Ladies, many of Gabriel’s items are transfer, so this is a great way to stretch your holiday budget and get a great present for that special someone on your list too.

The Denim Zip Up Jacket in Blue is my favorite garment from their large selection of casual clothes. It comes with the optional matching leather and denim shoulder bag. Personally, I don’t wear shoulder bags, but it was so well-made that I was forced to include it in my picture! I might even start wearing it with the jacket because it looks so great! The jacket is simply fantastic, as you can see from the realistic design and detailed stitching. It comes in three variations: with white T-Shirt, with black T-Shirt, and with no T-Shirt. Only one size is offered, but it is like fitmesh so it fits a large range of avy sizes. This is one instance where trying a demo before you buy is extremely helpful. The free 500L gift card is an extremely generous offer and you will want to use it on something that you love wearing.

whc gabriel suits 1

Gabriel doesn’t limit you to just casual clothes; additionally, they make some extremely attractive suits. This one, the Black Three-piece / Stripe Vr.02 is quite dashing. It comes in two variations as far as the length of the pants, and also includes a texture hud giving you three different shirt colors and five tie patterns. It is almost impossible to go wrong with such an attractive pinstripe suit. Pictured next to it is my personal favorite of the suits offered by Gabriel. The Feather Tie Suit in Black has a distinctive detailed feather ornament making up the tie. I love how unique it is and it will be eye-catching on the grid to be sure. Both of these suits come in one fitmesh-like size that should look dashing on your avy and are constructed as one finely detailed piece of Mesh. Remember to be on the safe side though: always try demos on first when you are dealing with Mesh items like this. One note about the feather suit, it is my favorite suit Gabriel sells but on my avy I had a problem low on one of the pants legs. Wearing black socks with the suit on my avy, however, rendered the problem insignificant in my opinion.

There is a huge selection of items at Gabriel, including shoes and accessories such as jewelry, don’t miss this chance to grab something nice. All three items I have shown are under 500L. In fact, nearly everything in the store is! It is completely worth the wait to get in if the sim if full, so have a little patience. We are all trying to snap this up! The gift card is not transferable. However, many of the items purchasable are, so this is great for us guys and for the women who adore us and want us to look our best. This is an extremely limited time offer so you will want to go as soon as possible. Take care and see you on the grid!—–WHC Riler

Point Me To The Eggnog!

whcLavarock Outlaw GG

Happy Wednesday everyone, I hope you are having a wonderful holiday season. In real life, I have been busy doing the Christmas party circuit in my “Eggnog Makes My Clothes Fall Off” T-Shirt. I find it shocking how few parties serve eggnog anymore. Anyway, besides that small disappointment, this is an excellent month for the freebie/cheapie hunter on Second Life.

My favorite item this week is another fantastic FREE Mesh Group Gift from Lavarock. The Outlaw Jacket went from the store directly into my wardrobe as their group gifts usually do. The jacket has excellent textures and detailing as Lavarock‘s items often have, but this particular FREE Group Gift comes with a texture change T-Shirt hud! It gives you a choice of twelve different T-Shirt textures and also gives you the option of not wearing the Tee at all! There are five sizes included in the box for a good fit, Ladies, this isn’t just for the men. A women’s version is also available as a FREE Group Gift. The quality of this garment is excellent, I definitely encourage you to pick it up!

It is the holiday season and I would be remiss if I failed to post a prize from the Candy Cane Hunt, which is currently underway. It is one of the best December hunts, and this year Inkheart is offering three colors of their Candy Eyes as their hunt prize. In the picture, I am wearing caramel. Also in the 1L box are the cotton candy and dark choco colors. The gift is rather comprehensive including mesh versions and three sizes for each color. The hunt object you are looking for is a blue cupcake with white icing and a candy cane sticking out of it. Happy hunting!

The last object surprised me because the hunt it is part of is long over. Sweet Intoxication still has The Biker Hunt prize available at their store! The prize costs 1L and is this fantastic pair of Mesh Jeans that I am wearing. Coming in five sizes for a nice fit, the Caden Jeans are baggy, but not overly so. As an additional option, there is a rag that is stuffed in the back pocket (which I love because it is an unusual detail). All things considered, these jeans are a fantastic pick up. The Biker Hunt object looks like a motorcycle headlamp; I hope many of us can grab it before it is gone.

That’s it for now. It’s time to pull on my holiday shirt and head off to another party. If I am lucky, I will finally find one with eggnog. Until next time, have fun everyone. Happy Holidays and see you on the grid!—–WHC Riler
