Miss Mermaid


Mermaid

Down in the depths of the ocean! Or perhaps just under the water at Mermaid Cove, that’s where I found this fun mermaid gacha by NYNE that I am excited to share with you. I also picked up a free group gift by Sweet Thing, and a free gift by Shiny Stuffs while swimming through the underwater shopping at Mermaid Cove.

NYNE Miss Mermaid Gacha

Mermaid Cove is definitely a cool shopping event, well worth the visit just to see all the fanciful underwater scenery. For this mermaid themed event NYNE put out a colorful mermaid themed gacha that is just 69 linden per pull. **Please be sure that if you play this gacha you play for the size/fit you want.** I played the Slink Hourglass option so my mermaid tail and starfish would fit my Slink Hourglass body. The rare tale comes with mermaid animations that seemed to work when walking, but better when flying. I’ll include a gacha key for this Mermaid Cove gacha by NYNE below.

The Shell Necklace by Sweet Thing

Sweet Thing put out a cute shell necklace at Mermaid Cove that is free to all Sweet Thing group members. The Sweet Thing group is also free to join at this time. The necklace includes a color change hud with a few preset colors for the ribbon and some for the shell also. It’s the perfect mermaid accessory! To get yours head over to the Sweet Thing stall at Mermaid Cove and click the gift vendor while wearing your Sweet Thing group tag.

The Bubbles by Shiny Stuffs 

Shiny Stuffs helped make my day with their fun bubbles they have for free at Mermaid Cove. There’s no group needed, just find the Shiny Stuffs stall at Mermaid Cove and enjoy the bubbles. This free gift includes a version with a glow and without.

My Favourite Unicorn

My Favourite Unicorn

I know we spend a lot of time talking about fashion and Second Life, but the thing that keeps us always coming back for more is by far the friendships we make along the way.  The strange path of SL can bring you to loads of places, but one of the more pleasant paths brought me to my lovely friend Seraph, who happens to be my favourite unicorn of all time.  Seraph wrote to me a little while back, knowing my penchant for clothes and whispered into my ears of a really gorgeous gacha over at Kustom9 that I needed to take a look at.  Well she was exceedingly right (she’s a very sartorially-inclined unicorn), and we coordinated our forces to bring you all the details of this cuteness!

It’s the Kustom

So Seraph and I ambled our way over to Kustom9, and after just a few little clicks we both had complete outfits, including the hair!  At just 69L a pull it really is a cheap way to put a cute outfit together.  The tops with the jean jackets are super adorable, just use the enclosed alpha to make your arms disappear (or if you have a Maitreya body, it should do it automatically).  There are loads of skirts and tops and jackets to mix and match, and if you happen to get the rare hair (like we both did, after not too many tries) you get a fatpack of colours with the ability to change the colour of the little braids too.   The gacha comes in S, M or L as well as being sized for Maitreya bodies.  I can’t deal with all the cuteness!  Kustom9 is open until April 10th!

I hope you have a magical special someone in your Second Life, because I know that my little unicorn sure lights up my life!

The Valkyrie

 

The Valkyrie
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! I had so much fun with this look, and it’s almost entirely gachas and group gifts. Sometimes my favorite part of Second Life really is just playing dress-up. I think Pru looks like a fearsome angelic warrior or a Valkyrie from Norse mythology. For details about each of the freebies and cheapies that make up this look just keep reading!

The Wings – These steampunk inspired wings by Rezology can be found on the Marketplace for just 1 linden. They are modifiable so they can be resized, recolored, and even moved around so the gears and such show on the outside of the wings rather than the inside.

The Tattoo – This group gift tattoo by This is Wrong is unisex. It is a fully body tattoo of intricate geometric lines. It reminds me a lot of art deco style line work. The gift includes several appliers for both male and female mesh bodies, and there are 3 color options. The This is Wrong group is just 50 linden to join.
Appliers Included: Female – Belleza/Maitreya, TMP, Slink / Male – Signature Gianni, Belleza Jake, TMP, Slink

The Bodysuit – This gorgeous detailed bodysuit is from the Bath’kol gacha set at Sweet Thing. It is the Rare item in the set. It includes a color change hud with preset options for different sections of the bodysuit. The Bath’kol gacha is 75 linden per play and can be found at the Sweet Thing store.

Bath'kol by Sweet Thing.

The Pose – The Pose Fair is in full swing and there are tons of free gifts. Special thanks to one of our readers Azure for mentioning the virtual truckload of freebies at this event! This particular pose is the free Pose Fair gift by posEd. It comes in a pose stand as well as just the pose alone. To get your copy of this dynamic pose, head over to the Pose Fair, and be sure to join the free group before clicking the gift box at the posEd booth.

Twisted Persephone

Persephone and the Sprites
Hello There Fab Free’rs! Aren’t you so glad the weekend is here? I know I am. Recently I posted about a fun Medieval dress that is a hunt gift at Moonlitcat Creations. Well, this fiery “Persephone” dress is yet another free hunt prize at Moonlitcat Creations. The Twisted Hunt, while frustrating at times, is a really fun hunt to participate in. That said, if you’re not familiar with the story behind Persephone, it’s worth looking up. I will tell you though, I like to think maybe they got the story wrong and she was in love with Hades from the start. They had such and unconventional, unfathomable romance that no one believed it. So the story was written that Persephone went with Hades to the Underworld against her will. That’s my version at least! Either way, it’s a beautiful story about why the seasons change. I hope you love this Persephone inspired look as much as I do!

The Dress – Before I tell you about the dress I want to mention that there is a matching male gift for the Twisted Hunt at Moonlitcat Creations. Both gifts are completely free, you just have to find them! This draped flame red dress has the appearance of bright glowing flames rising up the hem. The very low draping in the back of the dress is such that it is a completely backless dress. The dress comes in several mesh sizes. Lastly, it also has an alpha layer, making it suitable for classic avatars.
Sizes Included: Classic Mesh (xs – XL), Fitmesh (xs – L), Maitreya Lara, Slink Physique, Belleza Venus

Here are the details, happy hunting!

This Devil Wears GATO

This Devil Wears GATO
Hello Fab Free Family! I hope everyone made it through the beginning of the week without incident! I actually feel like this week has been flying by. Maybe that’s a good thing! Speaking of good things, GATO recently sent out a free dress to their Subscribers, and I am excited to share it with you!

The Dress – How cool is this animal print dress by GATO?! The second I saw the ad for it, I ran to grab my free copy from their subscriber. I did have to unsubscribe, then subscribe again. However, as soon as I re-subscribed the dress was automatically sent right to me. This free subscriber gift comes in a Maitreya Lara mesh size only.

Here are the details, enjoy!

A Different Kind of Beautiful

A Different Kind of Beautiful“Everyone has their own opinion and their own ideas about what beauty is.” – Rick Genest aka Zombie Boy, 1985 -2018

Hi There Fab Free’rs! I have a couple of things to share with you, and I am super excited about both so I am going to get right to it!

The Horns – I think it goes without saying these horns are stunning. S t u n n i n g. They also happen to be one of the most recent free group gifts at Sweet Thing. I couldn’t tell you the number of photos I took just watching how the light bounced off the detailed ridges of these awesome horns. Can you tell I love them?! This free group gift from Sweet Thing comes with a color change hud with 22 color choices for the main part of the horns, and the option to choose from the same 22 colors for the tips of the horns. The Sweet Thing group is also free to join.

The Tattoo – This detailed face and neck tattoo is a Marketplace dollarbie by Speakeasy. I actually came across this gem by accident on the Marketplace, and I have to say I’m super glad I did. It isn’t a new item, but I am not at all bothered by that. The tattoo is unisex and includes Omega appliers, a TMP applier, and a Signature applier. Each applier has 3 tone options. As you can see from the vendor photo below, there are tattoos around the right eye as well as the left. So if you’re super late to this party like I am, go get your Speakeasy Marketplace dollarbie right now! hahaha

Shop ‘Till You Drop!

Merry Kittymas_001

It’s Shop ‘Till You Drop Season, so it’s the perfect time to visit an event called … well… Shop ‘Till You Drop! And as I mentioned in my post {HERE} almost every booth has out a free gift that you can buy for 0L, no group required! I picked up my cute Merry Kittymas sweater at the Sweet Thing stall! I just love it! It comes in fits for Maitreya, as well as Belleza (Freya, Isis, and Venus).

Another December Gift

KoKoLoReS puts out a new group gift like clockwork every month, but right now if you hurry it will be absolutely FREE, because there is no join fee as of the time of this posting. I’m not sure how long this will last (the join fee is usually 250L) so hurry and get in on the deal and pick up the pretty free December gift of “Loulou” that I am showing off in the picture above. You’ll get a hud of natural colors to compliment your usual hair color too!

Merry Kittymas_002

While you’re there…

While your at KoKoLoReS, be sure to stop by the counter for some free gifts. There are three (3) gifts, no group required that you can buy for 0L. I picked up these Catwa mascara appliers for my eyelashes. The luxurious look is great for a formal look! Though I love them for every day wear too! They came in two styles… a longer eyelash look and a shorter eyelash look. In the picture above I have on the shorter eyelashes, and am using the eyeliner from the hud that comes with my Catwa head.

I Couldn’t Say Hell No!

I Couldn't Say Hell No!

Oh.  Em.  Gee.  Hello Fab Free!

I am so excited to be here!  As Love said in her introduction post HERE, I have been a reader of this amazing blog for 3 years.  I, just like many of you I’m sure, check the blog daily for those fabulous deals and gorgeous finds.  And now, here I am!  I’m just tickled pink!

I gotta say, these bloggers make it look easy, but scouring the grid for a fab look sure is a heck of a task.  I want to thank all the Fab Free bloggers for tirelessly seeking out awesome looks for us fashionistas (and fashionistos… is that a word?) to keep us looking gorgeous.  I will do my best to keep up with these well-heeled bloggers!

Hell Yes!

Even though my cute shirt says Hell No, I couldn’t say no to Love when she asked me to join the Fab Free Blog Team!

I jumped straight into the task and found this adorable belly-baring top for a Group Join of 50L at Abrasive .  They have several other gifts out, so the price is well worth it!  This tee comes in sizes from XXS to L and has an alpha layer included.

A Bit of Shine

To complement my new top, I added this free copper skater skirt from Sweet Thing.  The group is free to join .  They also have a few other cute gifts out, which are all quite lovely!

Sizes:

Maitreya Lara
Belleza Isis, Freya & Venus
Slink Hourglass

More to Come…

Dear Fab Free’rs, this has been an absolute blast .  I am so stoked to be a part of this fashion family, and I can’t wait to find you more cool stuff all over the grid!

Enjoying the Holiday Grind

The holiday grind has not gotten to me yet… in fact today I’m enjoying it! Gothmas style! Though I admit, I did wake up early to make pancakes. Does it count as Gothic if I made the pancakes in the shape of little bats and “colored” them with Nutella to get them to look right? I know my daughter was certainly thrilled!

Enjoying the Holiday Grind 1

Speaking of the holiday grind… the Radio Grind has everything you need for a Gothmas! Or just for a Gothic day… or steampunk (it could qualify for that with the right decor). Either way, I stopped by the Cart Sale again, and made away like a banshee!

The Radio Grind has me dressed up in style in this Storypunk Wonderland Red dress. It is mesh with lots of sizing choices to fit your avatar… and at only 10L for such fabulous details? I fell in love!

If red isn’t your thing, don’t worry! This same gorgeously detailed dress was at the cart in two other colors for the same low price, one of which was a soft floral blue, pretty enough for the spring days to come.

Enjoying the Holiday Grind 2

So it’s the holiday. Merry Gothmas and Happy Holidays (all of them) and good cheer for the New Year! Are you loving my set? Me too! Would you believe that this AMAZING skybox is only 10L at the Radio Grind cart at the Cart Wash Sale?!

The skull throne and curtain were included details from Radio Grind skybox, though I did toss down a few things of my own for this picture. You can get the Glyphic Circle by Nocturne Creations from the Marketplace for only 50L. It is animated and scripted to turn, and only 3 prim when you set it down.

I also set George out again. He joined me once before in a long ago post. My hellpup is a sweet Gacha prize you can get in store from Sweet Thing. It is just a touch over our 75L limit, but I had to share him with you! For just 80L per spin you can get a chance at this cute pup — either in holdable or the “plop” option shown. And he comes in lots of classic Gothic styles!

Enjoying the Holiday Grind 3

Last, but certainly not least, I hope you are still making all of your advent stops! Many stores are finishing off with grand finales today! My lovely little Kiss Me Holly stick pin is by Chop Zuey and is FREE with your group tag (350L to join). This advent is generous indeed in that there are 12 days of group only gifts (the group is 350L to join) with a men’s side and women’s side (so 24 gifts total there alone) PLUS an additional completely FREE advent with 12 days of FREE gifts too! And the advents for this store are open the full time so if you miss a day you can still get all the gifts. Be sure to pick them all up before they are gone!
