A Bit Creepy, A Lot Cute

A Bit Creepy, A Lot Cute

Oh I am so ready for this season of pumpkins and leaves crunching underfoot!  I have come to realise that Fall really is my favourite season.  Summer gets a lot of the hurrah, I find, but Fall is really more wondrous for me.  It could be the colour of the leaves, the wonderful celebrations, or even perhaps that crispness in the air.  I don’t know what it is, but I do love it.

Trick or Treat!

I usually wait a bit longer (do I?) to start posting Halloween gear, but when I nipped over to Trick or Treat Lane I couldn’t help but get excited.  All the creators have put a gift outside their little displays, and they’re all FREE!  No group join required either, just buy the gift for 0L.  Here’s what I’m showing you:

  • FREE Top by Pink Cream Pie sized for Freya, Hourglass and Maitreya
  • FREE Tights by Alaskametro with an Omega Applier
  • FREE Sneakers by Oubliette sized for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink
  • FREE Hairclips by The Nerdy Birdie, which are editable so you can place them just where you like.

Trick or Treat Lane is open until November 1st so you’ve got plenty of time to pick up your goodies – what else will you find lurking at Trick or Treat Lane?

I’m Still Clinging to Halloween

I Wasn't Ready
Oh My Goodness, Fab Free’rs, I’m sooo not ready for October to be over! Not only do I love Halloween and want it to last longer, I’m just not prepared to start thinking about Thanksgiving and Christmas. Ahhh! Still, I’m sure I’ll get into the spirit of both up-coming holidays soon enough. For now, here’s one more witchy moment.

If you’ve been reading the Fab Free blog for long, you know I adore tattoos. This chest and sleeve tattoo is a free gift by Cheeky Ink. There is also a free tattoo for the guys at the Cheeky Ink shop. No group is needed for either tattoo. The tattoos come in 3 options, a 50% transparency, 75% transparency, and 100% full transparency. This tattoo is an Omega applier tattoo.

I could not resist this shimmering pumpkin from Sunora. It’s a cute little Jack o’Lantern with a simple hold animation. I also love the particle sparkles it emits. It looks spooky and magical! You can do away with the particle effect by clicking the jack o’lantern. This little pumpkin is just 50 linden on the Marketplace.

Here are the detials, enjoy!

Punk Rock and Pumpkins

Punk Rock and Pumpkins

I’m all punk rock and pumpkin colours tonight, ready for a little frolicking in the leaves with a bit of an edge!  Are you in the mood for some toughness?  Well let me get right down to it then!

A Hunting We Will Go!

Crom is currently having a little hunt over at their mainstore.  There are 5 little pumpkins hiding around the store.  Buy them for 5L each, and you’ll find all sorts of cuteness inside!  I picked up pumpkin number 1, and inside lay this super cute miniskirt.  I can wear it with loads of different tops and at any time -not just Halloween!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya
  • Venus
  • Hourglass
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy
  • Tonic Fine
  • XS-XL with an Alpha Layer

Up Top

My top is another free find over at Trick or Treat Lane, this one by Glutz!  There are loads of gifts to be had for absolutely free, as I mentioned the other day, no group join required.  The Babygirl top gift by Glutz features a cute bat on the front and is sized for Hourglass, Freya, Maitreya, Physique and V-Tech with several different petite and push-up options for a few of the sizes.

More Hair!

My sweet multitone bob is a free gift by BMS at the Japan Canvas sim.  They’re having a little hunt which didn’t strain my eyes too much, thankfully!  I searched for the little orange clapboards not far from the landing point, and I quickly found this hair!  There are two other styles inside the box too!  Cool!

Is carving pumpkins considered punk rock?

Scarily Sultry

Scarily Sultry

I suppose one can always be subtle with the Halloween stuff, just like Love said, or you can go all out, or perhaps you can find a happy medium that lingers somewhere in between.  Today, I feel like I’m toeing the line between full on Halloween and just dark and sultry.  Whatever you want to call this look – you can get it all for FREE, no group join required!

Trick or Treat!

I’ve been having such a good time at events the past few days, that I decided to make my way over to Trick or Treat Lane to see what all the hubbub was about.  Turns out all the creators have a little free gift out in front of their haunted house diplays!  I’m showing off three lovely finds today:

  • Free Dress by Zoom (Sized for Ebody, Freya, Isis, Hourglass, Maitreya, Tonic Curvy & Fine)
  • Free Hair by Sn@tch (Comes with an HUD with some dark colours to enjoy)
  • Free Lipstick by Alaskametro (Several jewel tones with appliers for Catwa, Lelutka, Omega as well as System Layers)

There’s so much to pick up over at Trick or Treat Lane, you really need to get over there!

Mix and Match it up

Mix and match it up

Hello, FabFree! Did you know that the group gift from Ollie’s Follies is out?

I don’t know about you but I keep a very, very close eye on the Fabulously Free in SL group gift listing found {HERE}. It is updated on the regular and I don’t want to miss out on even one of the awesome and free gifts put out by our Fab Designers. You can be sure that there was much excitement when I saw the latest addition to the list from Ollie’s Follies as not only did both gifts cater to classic and mesh avatars, they could be used as separates as well.  Pretty sure I left dust bunnies in my wake as I rushed over to get my hands on these new wardrobe staples.

Before we begin, though…

Alright, before I jump in there’s one very important thing that you should do (if you haven’t already) and that is to join the Fabulously Free in SL group. All you have to do is cut and paste the following link into the local chat inworld and click the link;  secondlife:///app/group/020fa7af-444d-f54f-01e2-557ec06315fd/about  The group is free to join and there are no more steps after that. Are you all set? Let’s go!

So that picture on the right.

Since I got too excited and did up two looks for this gift, I’ll be talking about the picture on the left first before moving on to the right.  What you’ll see on the left is the Harlowe Cardi Combo, a snug and beautifully textured long cardigan that comes with the grey tube top. In RL I really do love pieces of clothing with inserts like these as they save time on styling and that fact as not changed in SL. The combination of reds, greys and subtle greens flow well together and bring to mind the coming festive months not to mention the chevron patterns all over the cardigan are deliciously eye-catching.

As I’ve mentioned above, the Harlowe Cardi Combo caters to both classic and mesh avatars. If like me you chose to go with the classic and mesh package you’ll receive the outfit in five fit mesh sizes (XS-XL) as well as sizes for Belleza, Maitreya, Slink Physique and Slink Hourglass. In the package, you’ll also receive an alpha layer for easier fitting. On the flip side, should you chose the package only for classic avatars you will receive the outfit in five standard sizes (XS-XL) and an alpha layer for the fitting.

I’ve paired up the Harlowe Cardi Combo with the Urban Denim Skirt from [QE] Designs that you can get for just 25L by hunting cute little ghosties at the Spookzilla event. The skirt comes in five standard sizes (XXS-L) and sizes for the Maitreya, Slink Physique, and Slink Hourglass bodies. You’ll get a spiffy alpha layer in the package as well. As a fan of denim, this skirt was a must have for me and the artful blood splatters simply sealed the deal.

The footwear pictured on the right is the free gift from Black Arts that is currently out for free at the Trick of Treat Lane event. The Halloween edition of the Gothic Lolita shoes is simply to die for and I just adore the details on of the skull and buckles. Mesh feet are not a requirement as the shoes come with a shoe base and an alpha layer. The Trick or Treat Lane event ends on the first of November.

Remember the Hocus Pocus event that I talked about in my post {HERE}? Well, I hit more of the participating stores and got lucky! The Mariska hairstyle that is pictured on the right is from KoKoLoReS and could be available for free to you with a little luck and magic on your side. This sweeping updo comes with a hud with six different color combinations and a tintable hairbase. If the magic is a little lacking on your try you can simply purchase the hairstyle for 50L.

Now to the left!

The high waisted trend is something that I follow pretty closely so I was pleased when I saw the other part of the free group gift from Ollie’s Follies. As with the Harlowe Cardi Combo, these Huez leggings cater to both classic and mesh bodies as well. I opted to get just the classic package which contains five standard mesh sizes (XS-XL) and an alpha layer, which is the one pictured. On the other hand, the package for both classic and mesh avatars include five fit mesh sizes (XS-XL) and sizes for the Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink mesh bodies. You’ll also receive an alpha layer for the fitting. I am just in love with the unique silver color of the Huez leggings and will definitely be wearing more of it as end of the year festivities draw closer.

Paired up with the Huez leggings is the Skelly swimsuit in Ultraviolet from Alaskametro that you can get for 25 L at the Spookzilla hunt. The Skelly swimsuit comes in classic clothing layers as well as appliers for TMP, Slink and mesh bodies that use the Omega system. Hunt around the Spookzilla sim for five other prizes from Alaskametro and you may be able to find the Skelly swimsuit in two other colors as well as makeup and nail polish. I’ve heard about Alaskametro through posts from Astrid so now’s my chance to try products from this merchant out!

Footwear in the picture on the left is also available in at the Spookzilla hunt. If you catch the ghostie carrying the Hunter boots, you’ll be able to get these amazing pair for 25L. The Hunter boots are a fit for classic avatars or those with mesh feet as the package includes one pair in unrigged mesh, pairs in five standard mesh sizes (XXS-L) and fits for TMP, Maitreya, Slink Physique and Slink Hourglass. And to top it off there’s a hud included so that you can fiddle around with the look of your new boots.

The hair I’m wearing in this picture is from Love and is also for the Hocus Pocus event. The luck and the right amount of magic you’ll be able to win this beautifully messy hairstyle that comes in a fatpack of colors. Just creep up near the bottle containing the prize and say hocus pocus in main chat to be eligible for the game. Don’t forget the game is case sensitive and you should use small letters. You’ll be able to play once per 24 hours though if you don’t want to wait you can purchase the hair for 50L. The Hocus Pocus event runs until the 4th of November.

 

Mix and match it up headshot

The final stretch!

Not only can you find clothing and footwear at Spookzilla, there are skins to be had as well. The hunt and event are hosted by Toxxic Rhiannyr of Alterego and Enertia so the beautiful skins that you can find in several of the ghosties are from Alterego. Being a skin junkie I love trying out new skins and was very very happy with these beautiful top quality finds. The texture of these skins are super smooth and I just love the dark makeup on them. There’s also something a little different about the ghosties carrying gifts from Alterego and Enertia. If you’re a group member they will yield their gifts for free. Just be sure to wear your group tag while hunting and at the time of me writing this, group is free to join. If you’re not in the group each ghostie will cost 25L

Featured on the right is the Rayne skin in the Pearle tone. The package includes three classic skin with makeup and eyebrow/eyebrowless options. You will also receive Loudmouth and Omega head appliers as well as two shapes. In the picture on the right, I’m also sporting two more hunt prizes from Spookzilla. The pastel goth horns in cream are brought to you by D-Style and the mouth chain by !nfinity. I just love it when I find accessories to compliment an outfit don’t you?

On the left is the is the Runa skin in Petale tone. The package includes three class skin with make and eyebrow/eyebrowless options. As with the Rayne skin package, you will receive Loudmouth and Omega head appliers as well as two shapes. I’m sporting the Skull septum piercing from !nfinity (there are two other septum piercings available in the package as well) and in both pictures I’m wearing the Redrum eyes from !nfinity which includes system eyes, mesh eyes with alpha layer and huds for Catwa heads and mesh heads using the Omega system.

The Spookzilla event is running until the 31st and while I know it’s a bit of a squeeze, as you can see from all the prizes to be had it’s well worth it! Happy Hunting ghosties and happy shopping!

Addendum: In my post Step inside and come closer  I failed to mention that the Thea Outfit comes in one fit mesh size for both the skirt and sweate (so all you avatars with mesh bodies can try it out!) I’d like to extend my apologies to Delriada Delwood for the oversight and to thank her for pointing this out to me and for her generous gift to FabFree.

Step inside and come closer

Step inside and come closer

“Will you walk into my parlour?” said the Spider to the Fly,
‘Tis the prettiest little parlour that ever you did spy;
The way into my parlour is up a winding stair,
And I’ve a many curious things to show when you are there.”

Have a seat.

The cushions are comfortable, there’s sushi on the table if you’re so inclined and please, don’t mind the knife…  -ahem- Seeing as it is the haunting season, I couldn’t help but try to be just a little bit creepy. In all seriousness, though, I do have some treats for you today dear readers and if you’re ready to let’s go! First up is the brand new Fabulously Free in SL group gift by M0oH! Now, this store has long been on my bucket list of places to visit thanks to all the wonderful posts by Love, one such example {HERE}, and a free group gift proved to be a strong lure. As soon as I saw the notice I hurried down to the main store to get my grab on and I was not disappointed.

So what are the details?

The gift, dubbed the Thea Outfit, comes in five standard sizes (XXS-L) for both the cropped sweater and the skirt. You’ll also receive not one but three alpha layers to help you with the fitting, one for the top and skirt combined and the other two for each piece of clothing respectively. What I find really great about this outfit, aside from the fact that it’s very well made and that the way it’s textured is to die for, is that you’re given the option to keep the outfit intact or to wear it as separates. Just thinking of experimenting with different combinations gives me joy and more so when you take into consideration the fact that this outfit is completely free. All you have to do is activate your Fabulously Free in SL group tag! Not in the group yet? Well, copy and paste the following link into the local chat inworld;  secondlife:///app/group/020fa7af-444d-f54f-01e2-557ec06315fd/about then click on the link and there you go!

If you want to know more about MO0H! and the great store credit program that they have going on at the store, visit some of Love’s blog posts for more information:

More treats!

Hmm…lets go from the top down, shall we? The bat headband that I’m wearing in the picture is the newest group gift by C’est La Vie. Not only is it adorable and a great fit for the festive season, it comes with a pose and resize scripts as well, making it easy to edit. What’s more, permission is set to copy so you can make backups before you embark on any editing.  The C’est La Vie group is free to join and you can pick up other group gifts while you’re there scooping up this one as well.

Do you love advent calendars? I’m certainly looking forward to Christmas time but Alice Project is giving you a little taste early. As part of their Halloween Massacre Special, you’ll be able to get one free hairstyle in fifteen special colors from the 25th to the 31st of this month. These gleefully macabre blood streaked hairstyles change out daily but don’t worry if you’ve missed one as you’ll be able to buy hair packs consisting of 5 tones for 50L if you want to complete your collection.

And ah yes, footwear. I’ve always had a weakness for quirkiness and boots and this pair from Wicked satisfies both those fancies. The Quinn heels (made for Slink high feet only) feature a wonderfully detailed lace up front and skull patterns so that you’ll stay in step with the season. Go to the Wicked store and hunt out a skeletal hand  for just 1L or just buy the pair for 25L from the shopper’s option that has been set out. The shopper’s option prim is also a skeletal hand that’s placed near the hunt poster. The Jeepers Creepers hunt runs until the 31st of October.

Step in and come closer

Oh, but I’m not done yet!

Head on down to Trick or Treat Lane to peruse the variety of seasonal goodies from a number of merchants. While you’re there, don’t forget to snap up the free gift that the majority of these awesome designers have set out and you’ll find yourself with a bag full of accessories, furniture, and even skin! The one I’m wearing in the pictures above is called Berry, a gift from 7 Deadly s{K}ins that comes in the skin tone Dust. In the package, you’ll receive the system skin with cleavage/no cleavage options as well as Slink hand and feet appliers and Omega body appliers also with cleavage/no cleavage options. Between this and the Klaasje fantasy skin blogged {Here} also from 7 Deadly s{K}ins I might just go drow permanently. The Trick or Treat Lane event though lasts until the 1st of November.

Windows to the soul…

To complete the look are the Hazelnut eyes from Out of Orbit. I tend to go for blue or grey eyes so this was a nice and free change up. These eyes are part of the EnMashed in Fall hunt and aside from the system eyes, you’ll also receive mesh ones with an alpha layer and Huds for Genesis Heads and Heads that use the Omega system. Find the bat that’s hiding in the store and buy for 0L. The EnMashed in Fall hunt is running until the 15th of November.

Ready? Pose!

New types of hunts and games are always something that I look out for and the Hocus Pocus event that is running until the 4th of November was something that caught my attention. You’ll need to go to a participating merchant for the Hud, Elephante Poses is one such merchant, and once you get the teleport list visit the stores to find a magic bottle. Once found say hocus pocus in local chat (game is case sensitive so remember all small letters) and depending on your luck and some magic you may get the item for free. If you’re not so lucky (you’ll get one chance per 24 hours) but still fancy the prize, you can buy it for 50L. That’s what happened to me for this Psycho pose set from Elephante but since I do love the poses from this store and was so tickled by the little prop knife that’s included with the set I got it anyway.

And that wraps it up. So many events going on this season and more besides…what are you still doing here? -Brandishes knife- Off you go.

“Oh no, no,” said the little Fly, “to ask me is in vain,
 For who goes up your winding stair
     -can ne’er come down again.”
