Through Anything

Through Anything

No matter what, my guy and I can make it through anything. Through thick and through thin, through the crashing of planes, the exploding of bombs, a new world regime! Anything at all could happen, and we’d come out on top, and look awesome while doing so. Okay, I admit that was a bit dramatic, but thanks to Second Life we can live through our stories. Thanks to Contraption, DRD, and Birth, we can look the part too!

I do love it when Blue and I find unique, whimsical, and otherwise outside the ordinary items inexpensively or better yet for free in Second Life.  Keep reading for info about each of these fantastic group gifts, and peep the full list of credits and links at the end. Then you can go on your own adventures.

Contraption

The foundation of my look for this post, and Blue’s, is this amazing jacket by Contraption. Not only is it highly detailed, it comes sized to fit both male and female avatars. It also includes a hud that allows you to change the metallic embellishments to gold or silver. This special edition version of the “Atreus Waistcoat” is free to all Le’Homme group members for the month of February. The Le’Homme Magazine group is free to join. You’ll find this cool gift waiting for you at Contraption behind the desk.

Sizes Included: Belleza Jake, Signature Gianni, Slink Physique Male, Slink Hourglass, Maitreya Lara (+Flat Chest Size), Belleza Freya

L'HOMME FEB 2020 GROUP GIFT: Atreus Waistcoat *MACHINA* edition

DRD

Death Row Designs aka DRD recently put out this cool as hell unisex cap as a free group gift. I love all the individual patches that add the detail of this hat. It comes in black, and navy blue. It’s able to be resized, and can be worn by male and female avatars. To get yours, you’ll need to join the free-to-join Death Row Designs group and click the gift vendor while wearing your group tag.

What time is it again? Freebie time!

What Time is It?

Happy Friday, Fab Free!  I know it’s been a few days since you last heard from me, but I’ve been catching up on my beauty sleep to recover from all those freebies we all got on Valentine’s day! I am almost losing track of time… but thankfully not for long because of the new amazing group gifts I found to share today. Today I am showing off a few fabulous gifts which you can get completely free at the Access Event and through the L’homme Magazine SL Reader’s Group right now. Let’s dig in!

An Amazing Watch

I am currently wearing a watch and bracelet from Midna, a store which was new to me! I am amazed with this group gift, which is the Vonda mesh Watch and bracelet. It is very realistic, and a unisex item so men and ladies can get in on this offer! You can change the colour of the watch, and the bracelet. This is a real luxury item and it will help me keep track of how my time is spent on SL!

To get the gift for free, simply join the L’homme Reader’s Group and click their gift board at Midna.

My lipstick is also a free Genus applier at the event made by Lisa Walker Makeup Studio. Simply walk over to the LW stall and grab this little freebie at Access. It is made for Genus heads only.

Have fun, Fab Free!

Spliced

Meow
Hello meow meow hello Fab Free’rs! haha I hope you’re all having a fine Saturday. I’ve been feeling inspired recently and this group gift tattoo from Immodest brought out the feline side of my personality. I don’t have an answer as to why, except that there’s something primal about this tribal-inspired tattoo. To help complete this lazy feline weekend look, I also picked up this group gift lingerie set from NyDesign.

The Tattoo – The unisex tattoo Pru is proudly showing off is a group gift at Immodest. The group is just 30 linden to join and there are a few group gifts currently available. The Splice tattoo comes in the black version shown and a white version. There are also Omega head appliers, which I did not use in the photo. To get your copy of this tattoo gift, head to Immodest, and make your way through the awesomely unique Immodest store setting to the upper left part of the store.
Appliers Included: Omega, Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, Signature

The Lingerie – The slightly lifted top and matching panties are a current FREE group gift at NyDesign. The set includes a color change hud with 6 color variations, each with 3 texture options, the solid one shown, a sheer version, and a semi-sheer heart lace option. The tank top and panties can be worn together or separately and the hud allows you to choose their color/texture separately also. The NyDesign group is FREE to join and there are other group gifts also available.
Mesh Sizes Included: Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), Maitreya Lara, TMP, Slink (Hourglass, Physique)

Here are the details, enjoy!

Lady Luck

Flight_001

I’ve always wanted to head to Vegas and try my luck at the slots, not that it would be good for my wallet I’m sure! But I went out and got lucky on the Dirty Little Secrets Hunt with my hunt buddy and came up with a few hunt items and then headed to Pandora Resort for some sun and fun and that was almost as good 😉

Lucky Lady

This Lucky Lady tank top by Sassitude made me think of the Vegas Strip and all its lights and glamour. And that’s what got me dreamy about hitting it big at the casinos! Especially with the shirts logo and dice and the words on it! Either way, for only a little hunting time and 1L, you’re sure to hit it big with this shirt in your inventory! It’s a nice little addition as part of the Dirty Little Secrets Hunt!

Shirt Sizes Available:

  • Fitmesh XS – XL
  • TMP
  • Ocacin V1 & V2
  • Tonic Fine & Curvy
  • eBody
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Physique
  • Belleza Freya, Isis & Venus

Top it off.

Every girl needs a hat or two in her inventory (and every guy for that matter as well). I picked up my hat from Tiar, also as part of the Dirty Little Secrets Hunt and only cost me 1 tiny linden. The hat is supposed to be the men’s gift inside the store (there was a nice ladies gift too), but I found the men’s hat to be nicely unisex and easily resizable to fit over my hair with just a tiny bit of editing. I thought it went well with my “Vegas look”. What do you think?

Happy high rolling and see you in Vegas! Even if only in Second Life!

Fab Free Designer Friday – 01/12/2018 – Deadly Nightshade

Deadly Nightshade
Hello Fab Free’rs, and welcome back to the blog for another edition of Fab Free Designer Friday. This week I get to talk about Deadly Nightshade. Not the plant, the shop! Deadly Nightshade is self-described as “bringing you quality avatar accessories of the magical and otherworldly varieties.” After browsing the shop, I felt like it was a sort of Second Life version of an Occult shop. At Deadly Nightshade you’d purchase accessories and other items to aid in an otherworldly or magical appearance. Most of the items I encountered are unisex as well, so the guys can get accessorized also.

The Deadly Nightshade shop has a very minimalist setup with signage on the floor guiding you to different types of merchandise. There are walking accessories, wearable auras, gachas, and more to explore. I even spotted a tiny bit of women’s clothing, and some decor. The landing point is a round central room where you’ll find everything you need in regards to shop information, group gifts, and events. Fitting with the round room, the circulation desk at Deadly Nightshade is also round. You’ll want to check out the desk, it’s where you’ll find the Fabulously Free in SL group gift. Both the Fab Free group and the Deadly Nightshade group are FREE to join. So if you’re looking for something different, something magical perhaps, you won’t want to miss out on these Fabulous FREEBies!

In a Naughty Mood…

Lets Play_001

I’m in a naughty mood today… and I decided I wanted to play… darts. I also did a naughty hunt. But came up with some most excellent free gifts that many of you may want in on even if you’re a perfect angel 😉

Being Naughty.

Now though Oct. 30th, you can get in on the Femdom hunt. You’ll be hunting down a little red shoe and the gifts are free if you are willing to brave what are mostly adult areas (there are a few stores that are not adult, but pre-warning, most of the hunting areas are adult). I picked up several very nice gifts that I wanted to share with you.

The Dress.

If you’re admiring my beautiful free purple corset gown, it is a free Femdom Hunt gift courtesy of Roped Passions. Hunt down the red shoe at the main-store and ladies it is yours to dance, wine and dine, or… kick up your heels in. Whatever suits your fancy. There’s also a men’s gift in the box that was too naughty to show. So if you want to bring your fella in for a naughty tee shirt (it’s really not PG-13) 😛 … feel free!

Dress Sizes Available:

  • Classic mesh XS – XL
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

The Necklace.

Night Wish Toys isn’t just for toys… I picked up my free pretty little bauble necklace as part of the Femdom hunt there by hunting down the red shoe at their main-store. Included in the box is a necklace for both men and women. I’m showing of the ladies gift in the picture above. I didn’t get a close up, but if you click into flicker you can zoom in to get a glance at this leaf shaped silver pretty.

Let’s Play?

I also picked up two excellent pieces of furniture to add to my home. One is from the Men Only Hunt, but I really love playing darts… and hey! A woman can play darts too! Just stop by Bad Unicorn and hunt down that free mustache and you get the 3 prim dart board as well as a throwing dart you can hang in your home… or den… or where-ever!

Have a seat!

I had to also show off my new parlor seat. This free Lyla chair by Roawenwood as part of the Femdom Hunt is so good that it actually took a spot in my own linden home on a permanent basis.

It includes single animations as well as Femdom animations and is only 5 prim. It includes enough animations that it rivaled any other Femdom chairs I have come across for quality… and it is free! It is worth hunting down that little red shoe to have this one in your home if you are into the lifestyle. Sorry, I can’t show you any of the animations! But it’s worth checking out if this is your thing! To top it off, it’s just plain pretty! Enjoy!

Cute and Psycho

Psycho
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! I hope the week has been good to you so far. Mine has been pretty good, great when I consider all the fantastic freebies I’ve been seeing on the blog. Needless to say I’m happy to be adding 3 more freebies/cheapies to the list with this post. I will let you know how and where you can score the hair, the glasses, and the dress Pru is wearing for next to nothing. I had fun with the slightly pastel goth twist to a comfy casual style, and I enjoyed wearing this look. I hope you will also.

Stardust

First, let’s talk about these long wavy locks of paste hair. This hairstyle is the most recent group gift at Moon hair. I think that Moon is pretty well known for their extra long hairstyles, and this one is a beautiful example. The hair is all pulled forward over the shoulders, and it comes with a group only color hud of gorgeous pastel ombres and fades. The Moon group has a one time join fee of 100 lindens.

Moon HEC Psycho Barbie

One More From HEC

I don’t mind telling you that I liked the group gift sunglasses from HEC aka Hot Elegant Clothing I showed in my last post “Sunday Fun in the Sun” that I picked up the Teleport Hub group gift at HEC also. These sunglasses are equally detailed and so cute on. They also come with an amazing hud that lets you custom color each individual part of the glasses, from the lenses and frames to the nose pads. There are also two lens versions, one pair with “baked reflection” and a “flat” lens version. To get these sunnies you’ll need to join the Teleport Hub group which has a one time join fee of 10 lindens. Then you can purchase them for zero linden at the HEC main store.

Psycho  Barbie

This cute little sweater dress is a current group gift at Psycho Barbie. The dress comes in several mesh sizes and could easily be worn as a top as well as a dress. I have to admit, it is rather short! The Psycho Barbie group is FREE to join, making this a completely FREE gift. All you need is group space. There are also quite a few previous group gifts still available.

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

Goth Garage Sale Hunt Accessories

More Goth Garage Sale
Hi hi Fab Free’rs! I’m back with a few more of the hunt prizes at the Goth Garage Sale. If you’re in need of a few good Goth accessories or maybe the perfect pair of chucks, this post is for you! The above photo should have been dated circa 1998 or so, because this look has me feelin’ some ’90s fashion nostalgia. haha As I’d mentioned in my previous post about the Goth Garage Sale hunt, you’ll be hunting little black cats with glowing yellow eyes. They are hidden (some more than others) around the Goth Garage Sale event and are just 5 linden each. Don’t forget, this event and the hunt will end August 8th.
Goth Garage Sale Hunt Close

Abyssal Beast Ring

I seem to recall that creepy cool rings being popular about the time I was graduating high school. It makes sense that they would be making a come-back. This Abyssal Beast ring is the Goth Garage Sale hunt prize by Venge. With sprawling black tentacles and a bright green eye, it’s an excellent goth accessory.

Koffin Nails

Lately I have rediscovered my love of nail polish. No goth look would be complete without a darkly beautiful manicure. The pretty black and red nail polish Pru is wearing comes courtesy of Dark Passions. Their Goth Garage Sale hunt item is a goth themed manicure and pedicure applier set. The set includes 6 color options each with the little black coffin with the crescent moon.

Appliers Included: Slink, Omega, Maitreya

Familiar Necklace

Another of my favorites from the Goth Garage Sale hunt is this unisex Familiar Necklace by The Little Bat. I love the idea of having a familiar, I’d like to think mine would be a bat, or maybe a crow. This pretty necklace with its thin black chain and little pagan star comes with a texture change hud that will let you choose from 10 different black and white animal familiar photos to display in the pendant.

Eternal Heart

Call it a collar or a choker, I really like this Goth Garage Sale hunt prize from Senzafine. The aptly named Eternal Heart Choker comes in the black and red color shown with the cute heart dangle and heart shaped ring. It’s the perfect combination of goth and sweet.

Doodle Chucks

To be perfectly honest I wasn’t sure I was going to like these Doodle Chucks by Oubliette at first. Then I tried them on! I love the playful little scribbles and doodles on the black canvas of the Goth Garage Sale hunt prize shoes. They do not appear to be meant for any specific mesh feet, however the note card that came with the gift says they are unrigged and can be modded to fit Slink, Maitreya, and Venus flat feet. I had no problem wearing them with my Maitreya feet. I didn’t need to stretch or size them at all, just move them a little. Now I want to wear them with everything!

Hello Hello Fab Free’rs! I cannot believe July is almost to an end. It seems like the summer just began. I suppose that old saying “time flies when you’re having fun” really does ring true. I don’t know about ya’ll but I’ll be spending at least some of my Saturday picking up the last few July group gifts that I’ve yet to snag.

July at the EMPIRE

One of which is the July group gift at EMPIRE. I’ve been an EMPIRE fan for a long while now and I’m never disappointed in their group gifts. This month’s gift includes 2 pairs of these high wedge type heels with a cut out at the heel, laces at the ankle, and a peep toe. The shoes come in the deep red shade shown, and a shade of blue. Additionally there is a hud to change the tone of the metal bits between black, silver, and gold. The EMPIRE VIP group has a one time join fee of 500 lindens, however they do offer monthly gifts and there are currently a few previous gifts still available as well.

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

Leggings FTW

Next up, I am so glad I snagged these cute black leggings from Satus Inc. They are a current group gift available to all Satus Inc. group members. You’ll find this group gift on the table to the left as you enter the Satus Inc. main store. You will need to join the Satus Inc. group and wear the group tag before clicking the gift vendor. There is a one time join fee of just 25 lindens however there are always gifts and sales. Plus, I think these comfy leggings will make everyone’s bum look good!

Sizes Included: Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), FitMesh (xs, s, m, l, xl), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Maitreya, TMP

FREE Okami Tattoo

Finally, this nicely done tattoo is a current group gift at K-tarsis. This tattoo shop is a new-to-me shop and I’ll tell you there are some eye-opening photos decorating the store. Just be aware you’re in for a bit of tasteful nudity if you shop at K-tarsis. The decor aside, I’m super happy with this Okami gift tattoo. This is another group gift, so you will need to join the K-tarsis group before clicking the gift vendor. The K-tarsis Designs group is FREE to join, making this a totally FREE gift even for new group members. Also, this is a unisex applier tattoo with appliers for both male and female mesh bodies.

Appliers Included: Slink (female/male), Omega (female/male), Belleza (female/male), Maitreya, Signature

Here are the details, Enjoy!
