Beyond the Veil

Beyond the Veil

Hey FabFree! I’m back with not one or two awesome offerings but three today. Two from the Twisted Hunt and one from an old friend. So let’s jump in!

The Twisted Hunt is one of my favorite hunts of the year. The free prizes are always top notch and I love the challenge of those well hidden cubes. I hunted down the pesky cube at Moonlitecat Creations for longer than I want to admit but it’s so worth it to get this gorgeous ghostly dress. The “Dusk Dress” comes in two separate pieces so it could be added to your mix and match pieces with ease. The fabric is slightly see through making it feel so gauzy and spectral. Perfect for this Hunt’s theme of ‘Beyond the Veil’.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • eBody
  • FitMesh – XS – XL
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic – Curvy, Fine

My faithful steed, Ingamar, is also sporting a ‘Twisted’ prize today from another favorite Designer. The “Unveiled” coat  is from Lunistice. I love the subtle swirls of gray, steel blue and mauve. It fits our Hunt theme perfectly. The coat fits all Teeglepet Horses and the Avatar. It also includes hoof coloring.

My third gift is from a Designer that’s been one of my favorites and a past go-to: Lumae. I was very happy to reacquaint myself with Lumae when I saw that the quality of the skins has only improved and now offers BOM. I was going to say go join the free group and grab one of the Galetea skins….. BUT the inworld store seems to have closed down. You can still get this gorgeous skin for free on the Lumae Marketplace. I sincerely hope Lumae makes a come back inworld, such good designers are hard to find.

In the Twisted Shadows

In the Twisted Shadows

Good afternoon, Fabulous Readers. You may have heard Juli is feeling a bit under the weather so I have ever so graciously stepped in to post for us both today. because how could I not when we both look so “Twistedly” good?

Both Juli and I have been fighting our way through the Twisted Hunt this past week. For all the frustration, there are some truly excellent prizes for this round. Such as the full suit I am sporting today. This is the “Shadow Seeker” ensemble from Roped Passions. I had first thought the purple was too lavender but it is a good classic purple and the subtle pinstriping in the black fabric makes it just that more handsome. The suit is one piece but it does not include shoes.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza Jake
  • Fitmesh Classic
  • Signature – Gianni
  • SLink Male

Julianna’s sleek gown is also from Roped Passions and is the ladies gift for the Twisted Hunt. (Each prize is separately boxed.) The “Shadow Seductress” gown is the same classic purple and black and has subtle silver lightning tracks across the bodice and skirt. Both of these outfits are wonderfully crafted and the details stand out. Roped Passions has an excellent selection of men’s and women’s items so be sure to take a look around while you Hunt.

Sizes Included

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

The Twisted Hunt runs until Sept 30th so time is catching up with us.

Don’t delay to cross “Beyond The Veil” soon.

When Bloggers go Bad

When Bloggers go Bad

Ah, sorry to say it does happen, bloggers do go bad.  When the deadlines become too much, when your creativity has been squashed away by demanding designers and events…. sometimes a girl just *snaps* (or a guy!) and there goes poor Teddy, who never said a mean thing to her in his entire life….  it’s so sad….

Kidding!  I’m kidding gang!  No teddy bears were harmed in the writing of this blog post!  That’s not really blood, its just ketchup!!!!  And its just a rubber knife I am wielding!  I couldn’t even cut a tag off a new dress with that thing!

It’s just me getting ready for my Halloween photos.  I have to say, Halloween is my very favorite time of the year in second life.  There are always haunted carnivals and zombies chasing you, and sometimes really grisly stuff that makes me squeal and squirm at my desk and I wonder what some people are actually thinking because it starts to borderline on just a wee bit *too* demented, you know?  But all in all it’s a lot of fun and I love to dress up and take scary pictures for a month or so, if you want to see some of my old Halloween creations just check my Flickr, I will keep it tame (er!) on Fab Free of course, but in my other blogging world… bwahahaha!!!!!  Look out!

However, I do have a reason for this post (don’t I always???), I’ve been continuing the treacherous Twisted Hunt and came up with this cute and slightly sinister outfit at Maya’s Meshy Stuff.  The shirt has a little evil (also knife wielding) bunneh on it.  It’s very INFP, the cute but can be scary thing, and I fully embrace it!  This is as I said previously a totally free hunt (but you gotta work for stuff!) and the top and skirt were hidden separately.  It’s a fun hunt to get you into that twisted spooky frame of mind for Halloween time.

This outfit fits:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

Spookily yours,

Divine Wisdom of the Earth Goddess

Ancient Wisdom

The Twisted Hunt is a long tradition for hunters in SL.  It is notorious for being difficult, a real challenge.  Many (not all, thankfully for yours truly!) designers will lay out endless decoys making the prizes elusive and making the hunter *really* work for them.  This makes it a bit tricky for those of us who want to blog hunt items so we can show you what’s out there, as hunts can be time sensitive.  But by-golly it’s a tough job but *someone* has to do it!  We fab free sisters are always willing to go the extra mile for our devoted readers and fellow freebie fanatics.  😉

And so (yes I am starting a sentence with the word “and”, cause I’m a rebel like that!) in the spirit of all the hunters that have come before me, and those that will come after me, I bring you an absolutely stunning find from the Twisted Hunt.  This entire ensemble, headpiece included is what you will find via the free Twisted Hunt when you go to FMB Fashion.  The glow around this gown is no trick of photography, no filter has been applied, this dress comes with the soft glow you see here, making you feel absolutely radiant and ethereal!

This dress fits:

  • Fitmesh
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Physique
  • Curvy
  • Fine
  • Venus
  • Volumptuous

My coolio magic sphere is a free gift (with poses, though I used a different pose.  shhhhh) amongst others at Icons of Style, that require no group.  Lots of cute poses and some props for both the ladies and the men!  Well worth a visit, Persefona is there too, making it one of my favorite places to go when I need something fun for a photo.

Nearly the weekend, hang in gang!

No Salvation

No Salvation

“Hell is empty and all the devils are here.” – William Shakespeare 

As we seem to be rapidly approaching my favorite holiday I was excited to see the new group gift at Caboodle. The Caboodle group gift is a short nun’s habit, which lends itself perfectly to creating a creepy demonic possession look. Inspired by the idea I added the new group gift tattoo by Letis, the Pumpkin Hunt gift by Blackstone at Swank, and some inexpensive Marketplace finds from Corvus, Mary, R.A.D. and Glow Up. I think this look would fit right in at just about any haunted house. Time to get terrifying!

Caboodle

Truly this nun’s habit group gift at Caboodle was the inspiration for creating my demonic nun look just in time for Halloween. The Caboodle group has a join fee of 100 linden. The habit can be repositioned, and sized. I wore it with a simple hair-base. Also, don’t forget to pick up the previous group gifts still available at Caboodle.

Letis

Letis put out this perfect-for-Halloween unisex spiderweb upper body tattoo as their latest group gift. The Letis group is free to join, so don’t miss out on this very well done tattoo.

Appliers/Layers Included: Omega Evolved, Maitreya, Slink, Legacy, Belleza, Signature, BOM Layers (35%,50%,75%100%)

Blackstone

I mentioned the Pumpkin Hunt happening at Swank in my recent post “Let Me Show You the Way.” The dress and horns I used for this look are from the Pumpkin Hunt gift by Blackstone. This gift includes a full look with a dress, horns, and a matching devil tail (not shown), as well as a HUD with several colors for the dress. You can pick this gift up for free at Swank. You’ll need the free Swank group tag, I’ll link that group below. This dress is fitted for Maitreya Lara only.

Swank Group – secondlife:///app/group/35fc648a-c80a-bd06-7b1c-0385c52e0fc1/about

Marketplace Finds

The gifts from Caboodle and Letis were a good start for this scary nun I’d imagined, the Marketplace was helpful for much of the rest.

Corvus – No possessed being would be complete without darkened circles around the eyes. I picked up the Corvus Demon Eyeshadow BOM layer for 30 linden on the Marketplace.

Mary – I also found a Halloween gift by Mary from 2019 on the Marketplace. The little goth cross tattoo comes in an Omega applier and is 1 linden on the Marketplace.

Glow Up – For some added gore I picked up a little nose-bleed drip by Glow Up on the Marketplace for free. It comes in a BOM layer only.

R.A.D. – Finally, the bloody sewn-shut lips are a Marketplace dollarbie by R.A.D. This gory costume essential comes in BOM layers and an Omega applier.

Alright all you creeps and ghouls, I really hope you enjoy these freaky fun freebies and cheapies. It was a lot of fun putting this super creepy look together for Halloween. Have fun out there!

In the Dark

In the Dark

The end of the month is swiftly approaching and I’m NOT ready! There are still so many Hunts to hunt and freebies to gather and events to go to…  I better just quit whining and get to it! One of the Hunts I love, despite the hair tearing, eye crossing, sneaky little hiding cubes, is the Twisted Hunt. It was actually the first Hunt I ever did way back in the early days. So yeah, I got tossed into the deep end first thing. BUT… The Twisted Hunt, in my opinion, has the best prizes of all the hunts.  And Gabe and I are showing off just a few of those awesome prizes today. But there’s a time crunch… The Hunt ends on the 30th!

Dark Elves

This round’s theme is Drow elves! I’ve always wondered what it’d be like to be one of the Dark elves and doesn’t Gabe look fantastic as a Drow? I’m lovin’ his yummy ears!  Ahem, anyway, our slick new Drow skins are from Jeanette’s Joint. The prize contains four skins for the ladies: Brows and Browless and “explicit” and modest. The guys get two skins – Brows and Browless. The skins are Baked on Mesh and look fantastic.

Rogues

Our new outfits are also Twisted prizes. These are the “Drow Rogue” outfits from Valkyr. The ladies outfit comes with the top, pants and boots while the guys garb is a tunic and pants. Both of the builds are just gorgeous and I foresee these outfits staying in our closets a long time!

Ladies Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique
  • Tonic – Curvy, Fine
  • Voluptuous

Men’s Sizes Included

Prepping for Halloween

Prepping for Halloween
Are any of your excited for Halloween? It is my favourite holiday, but it’s always more fun on SL in my humble opinion. I got some amazing jewelry that reminded me of Halloween and an amazing dress on the fall Twisted Hunt, as well as a great pose from the Pose Fair event.

Twisted Hunt- Drow

Pru recently showed some of the amazing prizes you can get from the fall Twisted Hunt, and I’m showing off a couple more today.
The Twisted Hunt is always really tricky and fun at the same time. You are looking for the little cubes with prizes in them at each hunt location, but watch out for the decoys! The main hunt ends on September 31st, and endgame is available to play until October 17th (a game/hunt at the end of the grid-wide hunt where you win lots of prizes if you complete the challenging puzzles and quests). Have fun on the hunt! All prizes on the hunt are free.

I am in love with this dress by Ari-Pari. It comes with a colour hud of a variety if colours and it is very versatile. It is their free twisted hunt prize, available until September 31st.

Sizes Included

  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza Freya, Venus & Isis

Halloween Jewels!

Some other prizes I absolutely loved from this round of Twisted are several free hunt prizes at Moondance Boutique. There is a whole jewelery set available, so you are looking for several hunt prizes here. Just click the little Twisted hunt easle at the store to get the details about all the prizes hidden here. I am showing off the earrings, necklace and rings and there is also two colour huds available as prizes to change the colours of the jewelery set.

Hopscotch @ the Pose Fair

We have seen quite a lot of posts this month about the Pose Fair, and today I am showing the free gift by HopScotch. This round of Pose Fair ends on September 28th, so get over there quickly.

Thanks for reading, Fab Free!
