Lovers in a Dangerous Space Time

Lovers in a Dangerous Space Time

Hello hello Fab Free’rs, and happy hump day! There are a few days left of the current round of Sanarae and if you haven’t been yet, you need to go! Each of the participating designers, save one or two, has out a free gift for Sanarae group members, and the Sanarae group is free to join. Yep, free, no join fees. I picked out several of the many gifts to share with you along with a gacha or two. So to keep this from being a super long post, I’ll get right to the info! Also, there have been a few other posts featuring Sanarae gifts which I’ll be sure to link below in case you missed them.

Kokoro – The Sanarae gift from Kokoro is this adorable headband with 2 of my favorite things, horns, and bat wings! The gift is free, unisex, and can be resized. Just wear your Sanarae group tag and click the gift box at the Kokoro booth.

Go&See – Not all tears are sad. These tint-able tears are the free Sanarae gift from Go&See. The gift comes in appliers only. There is an Omega applier, and a Catwa applier in the package.

S0NG – These dark lovely eyes are part of the free Sanarae group gift by S0NG. The eyes come in a mesh set, classic layer, and an applier for Catwa mesh eyes. Also included with the S0NG gift is a simple black eyeliner applier for Catwa heads.

AMITOMO – The AMITOMO gift is one of my favorites of the free Sanarae group gifts. These cute heart dangle earrings have the word “Love” scrawled across them. Seriously, they are adorable. The earrings have a hud that lets you choose from several colors for the text, and a few metal tones for the rest.

Also from AMITOMO is this cute harnessed shirt-dress. It is part of their LoveHolic gacha at the Sanarae event. The dress comes with a color/texture change hud for the harness straps and bits. The hud allows you to pick from various cute text. The leg strap Pru is wearing is also from the same gacha and gives you the choice of colors and textures to match the dress. The AMIMOTO LoveHolic gacha is just 69 linden per pull.

P.S. I picked up this playable checkers set by The Black Forest for just 10 linden on the Marketplace!

Zombie Hunter

Zombie Hunter

To get myself into the mood for Halloween, I decided to grab my crossbow and head over to Dystopia in search of zombies. Unfortunately, my car broke down, so it looks like I’ll be staying for a while.

Hang on, I think I see something moving behind that big pile of trash…

(For the record, there don’t appear to be any zombies at Dystopia. But if you’re looking for a well-designed, post-apocalyptic sim, you should definitely pay it a visit.)

The Outfit

What inspired my look today was the September group gift from Ghee. I’ve seen it styled a number of different ways on Flickr, but for some reason, when I put it on, I felt all Sarah Conner from The Terminator. All I had to do was add a weapon, and I was a bad@$$ zombie hunter! 😎

The VIP 09/17 GIFT from Ghee is a complete outfit that includes the cargo pants, tank top, and boots. The ribbed tank comes with a texture-change HUD with 6 different colors — black, yellow, orange, blue, pink, and the beige color I’m wearing — so you could definitely wear the tank as part of another outfit.

Sizes for the pants and top include:

  • Standard mesh XXS-L with alpha
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique

The boots are “one size fits all.” Just remember to remove your mesh feet first.

The Accessories

I shopped around quite a bit to find the perfect accessories for my look:

  • Hair – I picked up the Rossella Hair by Tableau Vivant at The Arcade for 50L. I love this “roots” version because everyone knows zombie hunters don’t have time to dye their hair, right?
  • Sunglasses – These super cool DESTRUCTINATOR glasses by TBF are available on the Marketplace for 10L. There’s no resizer, but you can edit > stretch to change the size.
  • Necklace – Another gacha, this time by Dahlia at The Imaginarium for 50L. Click for a resizer menu.
  • Bracelet – An oldie, but a goodie, by Eli Rae’s Tinkering, available for 5L on the Marketplace. There’s no resizer, and you can’t stretch either, so the size is what it is. Originally shown 4 years ago by Caresia Adored, some SL items just never go out of style. 🙂

The Weapon

No zombie hunter would be complete without a weapon, of course. I selected this scary crossbow by Blackburns, which I found on the Marketplace for 29L. It comes with a wearable version that hooks onto your back (without any straps, which I thought looked a bit odd), as well as the

It comes with a wearable version that hooks onto your back (without any straps, which I thought looked a bit odd), as well as the posed version that I’m showing here, which actually shoots. Oh, and it includes an arrow that you can wear in your head, if you like.

Sadly, I didn’t find any actual zombies to shoot at in Dystopia. But I did have fun firing at the trees on my sim, which scared the daylights out of my dogs. 😛

Happy hunting, folks!

Lets Play Hooky!

new713-1

Man, another Monday?  Lets all play hooky and hit the beach!  There is no better reason than this sweet, windswept hair from the geniuses at Truth.  The Essena Hair is free in the subscriber, and you get the complete fatpack.  I love the soft curls and finger combed look.

On the way to the beach, I swung into Kendrasy Creations to pick up this adorable mesh Aztec top.  It is free in store, and includes 5 mesh sizes.  The texturing is top notch,  and the mesh moves perfectly with your body.

Also on Moira is the subscriber gift from Amala.  They are giving out a beautiful 4 necklace set just for joining the subscriber list.  And the best part about subscribers? It doesn’t take up a group slot, and you get to keep up with great creators!

new713-2

What is a day at the beach without a great campsite to plop down at, have a few drinks and as many nachos that will fit in your tummy?  I found this awesome wearable beach set from The Black Forest on MarketPlace for only 10L.  No need to rez, just attach, and you can plop down anywhere and have yourself a siesta.   Nothing makes the work week fly by like so many margaritas!  It is available in a few different styles, so make sure to shop the store.

Here is to a wonderful week!

Love,

Moi

This Little Light of Mine

Lantern Fairy 1

The inspiration for this post is the Twisted Hunt gift at Roawenwood. This beautifully crafted display case made me think of every fairy tale and bit of folklore I’ve ever heard involving the capture of a fairy or pixie! This display case includes several pose options perfect for Gorean or other fantasy genre role-play I just had to put something together. Lucky for me, one of my favorite events, The Fantasy Room, has started a new round! I always find amazing things at The Fantasy Room. So, I decided I’d take the opportunity to show off a few of the items I found there as well. Sweet Lies has this beautiful complete outfit for just $50 Lindens at The Fantasy Room. This mesh ensemble includes upper and lower arm bracelets, anklets, a mesh “dress”, and matching thong. Please note that this is a “Gorean” style outfit, so it’s meant to be revealing. That said, I think it’s perfect for role play, and it could even be worn with other clothing for a variety of looks. Also, the outfit includes a working oil lamp! Also at The Fantasy Room, I found some fun foot chains from Storybook. They are called “Tartarus Chains” and I thought the delicate chain in the curvy organic pattern was perfect for my little Lantern Fairy.

Lantern Fairy

Wanting to give my little fairy a little more magic and mischief to her look, I decided she needed some cosmetic enhancements. We all know how much I love makeup! While browsing through Swag Fest, I picked up this gorgeous bronze-ish lipstick from Pink Acid priced at just $50 lindens. The color is called “Bean” and it’s perfect for something dark and lovely, especially for fall. I paired my pretty lipstick with some upper and lower eyeliner, and a tattoo I found on the Marketplace. This little crescent moon shaped tattoo is by Evocative, and was a mere $25 lindens on the Marketplace. Also on the Marketplace, I picked up a fairy essential, wings! These delicate wings are by The Black Forest, and they are modifiable, as well as scripted. At just $10 lindens on the Marketplace, they are well worth it! I hope you like my little Lantern Fairy!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

I’m A Tree, And News About Jane

Snapshot_009Yup, I’m a tree!

Hudson’s Clothing Co. has a new group gift out that is so unique, I jumped on it as soon as I saw it to show it to you all.  They have started offering Fantasy Faces which come in the form of a tattoo layer and very recently have released their Clouded Moon version as a free group gift.  This gift includes the deep brown eyes I am wearing as well.  This group is free to join.

I went a little further with the whole “tree thing” and picked up The Black Forest Oak Tree Antlers on marketplace for 10L.  The Mystic Forest Collection: Druid Nature Necklace can also be found on marketplace, and this item was free.

Another bit of news I wanted to mention since I am wearing the Jane Intrinsic Tank, which has probably been shown a trillion times by several of us bloggers here at FabFree.  The other day I received a notecard from Jane with big news.
seeYouSoonSale

I went to visit the shop when I heard the news and you will want to check this sale out!  They still have the two fatpacks of tops and a trio of mesh dresses in the subscribomatic as free gifts, and I saw some items marked down as low as 25L.
