Guilty

 

Guilty

If I’m being accused of enjoying the freebies I picked up at The Jail event, guilty as charged! I know I know, I already did a post about the event, and the fact that they’re having an anniversary. I just couldn’t help sharing a few more of the fantastic gifts. Incase you missed them, Aline posted about The Jail event gifts here, and my last post “Who Run the World” featured a few of them as well. The Jail event gifts are all free, you just need the free-to-join group tag. For this post I’m featuring the free gifts at The Jail event by Simply Saddii, Immortuos, and Dark Love.

The Jail Event Group: secondlife:///app/group/e9238129-1407-9f47-3533-35ec703bfcbf/about

Simply Saddii 

I really like this little black dress by Simply Saddii, and not just because it’s free at The Jail event. I like the style of the dress, and I feel like it has just the right amount of whimsy without being too juvenile for my taste. Again, this dress is free, just wear your Jail event group tag and click the gift vendor at the Simply Saddii both.

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

Immortuos 

The chest tattoo I’m wearing is the free Jail event gift by Immortuos. It reads “guilty” and I find it dark, a little bit cheeky, and really well done. It also comes in “irritation” levels which gives it some added detail that most lettering tattoos. The irritation shows as the redness around a freshly inked tattoo or perhaps skin irritation around the letters for some other reason.

Layers/Appliers Included: BOM Layers (tattoo, tattoo irritation1, tattoo irritation2), Omega Applier

Dark Love

Finally, the planchette and hold pose used for this photo is part of the free gift by Dark Love at The Jail event. The gift includes 4 planchettes, each with a different hold pose. I thought this gift was just too cute to not share. The planchettes also have a little particle effect. They emit cutely sinister looking little particles while you hold the planchette.

Early Snow

Early Snow

Ok ok, it’s still November, and Fall is still in full swing in the Northern Hemisphere, I know… The thing is, up here in the frozen marches of the North, snow has become quite prevalent for many of us Canucks!  Time to face up to the realities of the marshmallow world!  Maybe we can even try to enjoy it a bit?  May as well give it a try!

To the Cart Sale!

The Wash’s Cart Sale is still raging on, and there are so many pretty and affordable goodies to grab.  This lovely outfit all comes courtesy of Poème!  The coatdress comes in several different hues and will only cost you 49L.  The little winning bow is an optional add on, but I thought it was just too cute to leave off.  I also grabbed the matching beret for just 10L, and the gorgeous black boots for only 39L.  Plus, the earrings are a free gift at the booth too!  You’ll certainly be ready for chilly weather after you visit!

Sizes

  • Belleza
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • XS – XL with an Alpha Layer

The Wash Event runs until November 25th!

Keep warm!

Escape to the Country

Escape to the Country

What a dream it is to frolic in open fields in an evening gown!  This city dweller is yearning for some wide open spaces, bright colours and blue skies.  The really important part of this little daydream is clearly the flowing gown.  And in my usual fashion, this is the part where I exclaim “and it’s free!”

Happy Birthday Belle Époque!

It’s time to celebrate everything Belle Époque with a completely epic hunt!  Not only are they celebrating with 10 lovely gifts hidden around the store, but the designer’s friends have also all contributed a free gift.  How lovely is that?  You’ll find goodies from other designers such as ChicChica, Luas, Kraftwork and many more.  Just search the store for the little white cakes (they have a pink rose nestled on top – so cute), they’re all free with no group join required.  I picked up this gorgeous gown (sized for Legacy and Maitreya) by Belle Époque as well as the pretty jewelry set from On a Lark.

Make sure you pass on your well-wishes to Belle Époque as well!

The Forgotten Morrigan

The Forgotten Morrigan

Ghosts, goblins, mythical monsters, and the souls of the deceased are all said to come through to this plane of existence as the so called Veil thins. This group gift pose by IDK Poses inspired me to imagine other such entities that might cross over into our world during this mythically magical time. I also picked up one of several inexpensive finds on the ChicModa Spooktacular Hunt to help me bring this look to life. Keep reading for all the details about. Full credits will be listed at the end of the post.

IDK Poses

This pose and moon prop at IDK Poses is one of multiple group gifts available. The pose includes the bright crescent moon prop, and the static pose. The IDK Poses group has a small one-time join fee of 10 linden.

ChicModa 

ChicModa is having a fun hunt at their mainstore. Hidden around the grounds of the shop and inside the store are 9 total Halloween themed items priced at 50 linden each. There’s no group required, simply find the Halloween gift bags and purchase them for 50 linden. I found and am wearing the Tay Bloody Top. This Spooktacular Hunt at ChicModa will end October 31, so don’t wait!

Oh I do love the Halloween hunt season here on the Grid. I am constantly amazed by the talented designers and the awesome clothes and jewelry and items they give us. For…free! I’ve done just enough building on second Life to know that this stuff is NOT easy so I hope you all thank your favorite designers and spend a Linden or two while you hunt.

SO, let’s talk Hunts. I’ve been bopping all over the Grid this week on Fallen gods Prophecy Hunt. Now, you only have until the 31rst to grab the HUD and finish the Hunt but that’s easily done. The Prophecy Hunt is a bit of a different breed of Hunt. First, you collect the Hunt HUD at the Fallen gods Sim. While you’re there, be sure to take a look at the special faire going on there.  Anyway, grab the HUD and teleport to the first store, find the hunt object ( An all – seeing eye) then you teleport to the next store. You don’t get the prize for each store till you complete the entire Hunt. The last teleport takes you to a massive prize room where you can pick and choose which ever free prizes you want or click the central pillar to receive all the prizes at once. Now, I know this sounds odd… but it works. The hunt objects are the fun challenging not the pull your hair out Twisted Hunt challenging. There were a couple of store that were… um… rather difficult. But, in the end, it was worth the frustration.

Having said all that… ya’ll still here… okay… Let’s look at some prizes.

My gorgeous gown is from Secrets of Gaia, this is the Asteria gown and it is stunning. I know my photo is gettin’ kinda artsy so I’m tossing the hunt photo for the prizes so you can see them. But I don’t think the Hunt photo does it justice. This thing is swoon worthy!

Sizes Included

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

My new jewels are from On a Lark. The ‘Gotland Orb’ s included HUD has 14 choices of jewel color and three metals. I foresee using this one a lot!

Lastly, I have a nifty new toy: The Prophecy Star from Jinx. The Star has it’s own hold animation and it revolves and drifts in a random dance over your hand. It’s really fascinating to watch.

So… go grab your HUD and get hunting. Hmmm the veils of the other world are parting and I forsee ….. you! In the prize room… grabbing your 55 absolutely free fantastic prizes!

Wicked Woman

Wicked Woman

My favourite iteration of the witch is one which is thoroughly modern.  I love the idea of a classy dame who just happens to be magical, maybe a bit mischievous and yet super fashionable.  Gone are the green-faced witches of our youth, replaced with imperious, strong women who know just what spell will work for every problem!

Thoroughly Modern

I was doing some investigative fashion-seeking the other day at Lowen, and I was ever so excited to find their group gifts!  Their group is currently free to join and you’ll find three lovely gifts right behind the main counter.  I’m showing you the Carmen dress as well as Angel sunglasses that aren’t only wearable for the Halloween season.  They just kinda called to me and got me in a wicked mood.  They come with fairly extensive HUDs so you’re sure to make this look all yours.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya

Have fun, my modern coven!

All Over Again

All Over Again

I’m back in pink and black again.  It seems to be a thing that just happens!  And the best part is, I don’t mind one bit!

I’ve Had a Vision!

It’s ViSion’s 10th Anniversary inworld, and they are totally spoiling their group members!  If you join their group for 18L, you’ll gain access to an awesome group gift of 450L in store credit.  The best part is, the whole store is on sale, so you get way more bang for your buck.  I bought the bodysuit (the necklace is included) and skirt I’ve got on there, and I still had money left over for more!  Fantastic!  You’ve got until October 18th to take part in all the festivities, so don’t let this gift get away from you!

Sizes

  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Legacy

  • Maitreya

Pumpkin Spice

ChicChica are ready to serve up something delicious!  The Pumpkin Spiced Ice Cream Rolls look so so yummy that I’m feeling a bit jealous of my avatar… It’s got a sweet bento hold and best of all it’s completely free!  You don’t even need to join a group.  You’ll find this awesome treat on the front desk at ChicChica.  Yum!

See you sweet things soon!

Seven Seas

Fabfree Post: Seven Seas

Double, double toil and trouble

It’s almost time for Ghosts and Ghouls to raise up for a night of tricks or treats! I know our lovely blogger Pru LOVES Halloween and I am right there with her with these last couple of posts. The closer we get the more my inner demoness tries to claw her way out for some air. Who knows what the next post will bring?

Lybra has a free gift out for Seraphim Group Members and it is gorgeous! This Long gown is clearly one of the classic staples I am going to rely on for future formal events. The top of the dress features a gold leaf pattern elegantly done, strapless and the bottom is black floor-length silk. Slipping into this dress tonight was heavenly and sitting in this pose was amazing too. I felt like an evil Snow White ready to poison the Queen

The free gift came out Oct 10th and is only around until Oct 24th. So make sure you copy and paste Seraphim’s Free Group in local chat to get it and head over to Lybra for their Seraphim Gift!

Gown Fits:

  • Ebody
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Legacy
  • Perky
  • Petite
  • Physique
  • Tonic

There are also some gifts in two groups at Satan Inc. after spending L$800/L$1500 the pose is one of those lovely items I was able to snag because the event has a few of my favorite shops in it so I spent that L$1500 with ease. =\ and my inventory is now filled with TONS of goodies I cant wait to wear.

Darkness Falls and So Do Slushies

Darkness Falls and so do Slushies
Time for a terrifying tale of epic Halloween proportions, my Fantastic FabFree readers!  The harrowing ghoul you see before you is coming from her daily rites of human sacrifice!  Ooh, evil!  Or, if you prefer (as I usually do) the red splatters are courtesy of an errant slushie that happened to tumble all over my new white dress.  Typical!

It Harrows Us with Fear and Wonder

My Halloween getup is one of the latest group gifts over at Belle Époque!  There are three fun and spooky new gifts out for members of the group.  Joining only costs 10L, and there are a whole bunch of fun gifts for you!  The top, skirt, tail and headdress (sized for Maitreya) can all be worn separately so you can make this look your own my mixing and matching (the red blood/slushie stains are there to stay though!)

So scary!

Fall Friends

 

Fall Friends

“Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I’d fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns.” – George Eliot

Hello there Fab Free’rs! Can you believe we are inches close to October already? I feel as though August lasted forever, but September has flown by. Needless to say, I’m so excited that my favorite time of year is here at last. Bring on all things autumn, I’m ready! For this post I’ve got freebies from PosEd and LYBRA to share with you.

PosEd

Speaking of autumn things, how cute are these squirrels?! My squirrel friends and the pail of pumpkins are part of a free Subscriber gift pose at PosEd. The gift includes a pose stand with the pose, and the props rez when you use the stand. The props are easily moved should you need to adjust them here or there. To get your free copy of this fun fall pose just head over to PosEd, join their subscriber, then click the pose vendor.
