Amazing!

This cute top from Amazing Creations is so adorable, and I’m happy I picked it up!  It makes me think of fields of sunflowers or bouquets of cheerful yellow flowers.  Isn’t it nice?  It’s completely free – just search for our little rainbow fairy.  Don’t wait!

Floating on Air

I also wanted to show you one of the fun poses from SAPA poses – I actually had a lot of fun playing with these, they’re little floating fairy animations, so perfect for putting together an ethereal look.  I loved watching my avi float up and down in a sweet, magical way.  Each pose is just 5L!

See you next time!

There’s No Such Thing as too Much Sparkle

There's No Such Thing as too Much Sparkle

Some days call for a heck of a lot of sparkle.  I’m feeling quite magical today in this beautiful lavender-sheen dress.  It’s making me want to perform all sorts of impossible feats – like dancing in heels for several hours, or making a perfect chocolate soufflé that can’t be sunk.  I always say, magic is everywhere!

A Little Sparkle

I’ve picked up a few more last minute finds on the FabFree Enchanted Forest Hunt – this amazing dress comes to you from Meander/Me.  The amazing shiny lavender hue had me at hello!  You’ll also be able to pick up the matching mules (sized for Maitreya, Belleza and Slink) and each will cost you just 3L.  There are a few other awesome prizes there too that match the outfit, so make sure you check out the key on our hunt page HERE.

To decorate my garden, I picked up the prizes from Collect.  You can pick up these three garden features (how cute is that little pixie?) all for 5 lindens and under (check out the prices in my credits below).  You know I love to put together a nice outdoor scene, and these three magical items are certainly lovely additions to my collection!

The FabFree Enchanted Forest Hunt all goes away on July 22nd, so don’t delay if you see something you love!

Road Trip to Bliss

Road Trip to Bliss

I decided on a new adventure today, and that had me astride a motorcycle whizzing down the highway until the sounds of the city were just a distant memory.  I found my way to a hidden little field, and lo and behold – it was the perfect spot to stop and smell the roses for just a few…

Still Feeling the Enchantment

I’ve got a few more lovely gifts from the FabFree Enchanted Forest hunt to show you tonight, I sometimes feel that people miss out on some of the awesome prizes when you don’t see them in context, so take a gander at what I picked up:

At YoUnique Couture, you’ll be able to get this top and jeans combo for FREE!  Just search for the little fairy, and it’s all yours.  I think it’s a good look for picnics in fields, or even a nice casual date night look.  For free, it just can’t be beat!

At Hogs and Cart Wheels, I grabbed this super awesome green motorcycle for just 1L.  It’s totally rideable and will leave everyone around you green with envy….and also leave them in  your dust!

At Kitty Creations, I was totally blown away by the awesome landscaping items that can be found for just 5L.  In one package, you’ll find a tree, swing, cuddle rug, bushes and a bunch more!  It was really fun making this little cozy space!

There’s less than a week to go, so if you see something you fancy, don’t wait much longer!

Sea Friends

Sea Friends

Hey FabFree! Tonight I am showing off some awesome free sea pets, how to make a free fully bento, BOM, and mesh mermaid avatar, and free skins and shapes on the FabFree enchanted forest hunt!

The Tale of the Orca and the Starfish

The first thing I want to mention are my adorable underwater pets. As you might recall, I love animals and I also love fish and underwater creatures! This amazing and precious Orca is free gift at SL18B and you have just enough time to go grab him because the event ends tomorrow. This will be my last SL18B find to share and I am super sad about it, because I just loved this event. However, this beautiful gift by Jian is simply amazing. The Orca swims along with your avatar and it even does water tricks! It is just magical watching her/him swim underwater. Go grab this Orca for free at Jian’s booth at SL18B before it’s too late. 

The other cute little animal shown in my post today is the adorable starfish, who you will see has little cute, pouting eyes. This is a fish I caught with my 7Seas casual fishing rod for free. The rod costs 99L to buy, but you can catch free outfits with it (remember Aline and Arielles recent Sn@tch fishing post here?). While waiting for outfits, I have caught a lot of fish too and they are actually really cute pets! Many are animated, can swim around you, or you can rezz them in a tank or aquarium. They are too cute to delete. I just love this little starfish guy, and you can see a close-up of his little face below. 

Free Mermaids, anyone?

The other finds I want to share today are items that can be used to make a full, free BOM, Bento mesh mermaid avatar. 

The OpenMerTail

My mermaid tail is a free fully bento (moving) mesh tail- how cool is that! It’s like a total extension of your avatar. This tail moves and twists like a mesh avatar but the trick is to get the right bento ao for it to make full use of the bento features. The tail also includes fins which can be worn or detached. There is more information about this awesome bento, BOM mesh tail in the package, but it is all totally free on the Marketplace. This tail can be used on male, female and non-binary avatars. Because the OpenMerTail is its own mesh avatar part, you need to find and use BOM skins designed for the tail itself, and there is also a pack for creators and designers to make new skins for it! The tail is a full perm item. Note that a bento mermaid AO is not included in the package. 

Sizes Included

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Belleza Freya
  • Belleza Jake
  • Legacy Athletic
  • Must Trade Bara

OpenMerTail - Fullperm Bento Mermaid Tail

And here is a list of more free items I used to make my mermaid avatar:

  • I mentioned above how you will need skins for your new tail. Motley Fluke has several skins for the tail available for free on their marketplace store. The blue tail skin I am wearing can be purchased here for free. These tail skins are BOM and work only on the free mermaid tail advertised above. 
  • The stars pasties used to cover up my chest are another freebie on the marketplace. These stars are by Yama’s Ideas and they are unrigged, resizable mesh items. I just resized them manually to fit my avatar perfectly. The mesh pasties come in many different colours. 
  • The little bubbles below are a free animation by Stargaze on the marketplace designed for mermaid avatars. These are so realistic and perfect for creating realism of moving in the water. 
  • Finally, the skin used on my mermaid avatar is a free prize on the FabFree Enchanted Forest Hunt. This is one of several hunt prizes from 7 Deadly S[K]ins. The natural skin, untouched with no makeup, can be seen in my photo below. I am also wearing a free shape included in the hunt, but I just edited the tummy of the shape to fit the mermaid tail. The vendor ad of all the 7DS skins available for free on the hunt is posted below. These skin prizes are BOM and they include shapes and tattoos for Lelutka Evo elf ears as well. 

Mer Detail

☑ Enchanted Forest Hunt ☑ 5 skin boxes WITH shape included hidden in the store

When you add all these parts together, you will have a full bento, mesh, BOM mermaid avatar! Enjoy the mermaid and the orca, FabFree!

The Fae’s Retreat

The Fae's Retreat
This little woodland fairy is pondering whether or not to invite her friends over for tea.  Does she have enough seed cakes, honey and scones to go around?  There are always plenty of berries in the forest, and a never ending supply of chamomile so the tea doesn’t ever run out.  A merry gathering it shall be… but… no humans allowed!

The Deep Woods

I am having such a good time putting together outfits and imaginary worlds on the FabFree Enchanted Forest Hunt.  Every time I unpack something, I get all excited at how pretty and imaginative the gifts are.  I made three stops today, and I had so much fun putting this photo together that I may just become a woodland inhabitant forever!  My first stop was Grasshopper St.  This shop is just so lovely in the way that it evokes the class and lush feel of an olde world millinery shop.  I picked up this gorgeous cloche for just 3L, and the parasol was 3L as well. Both are resizable so will fit like a dream.  Aren’t they amazing?  Love it!

Fit for the Fae

Raindale has long been one of my fave stops for distinctive furniture.  When they joined the hunt, I couldn’t think of a better place to evoke the enchanted forest feel we were going for.  The furniture that peppers my little hidden forest abode is all 1L each, and really is completely beautiful.  You’ll want to add every item to your collection, just like I did!

Secrets of the Unicorn

Ishiku has also come up with an amazing concept for our hunt – the cracked monolith is HUGE and just such an interesting set to add to your hidden garden.  Each item is just 5L each and is completely and utterly gorgeous in every detail.  You’ll get the massive stone monolith, the etched stone, the magical unicorn horn vial and the golden stand for it.  It’s utterly brilliant!  I’m gushing a bit, but honestly…it’s fantastic.

The FabFree Enchanted Forest Hunt is running until July 22nd!  Show our awesome designers some love!  Here’s one more photo for good measure… (can you tell I had fun with this shoot?)
