Fortune’s Fool

Fortune's Fool

“I am fortune’s fool!” – Romeo, Romeo & Juliette – Shakespeare

Hello Fab Free’rs! It’s my favorite time of year. The weather starts to get cooler, the leaves turn, and Halloween is just around the corner. I can tell from these playful if mildly occult themed gifts from the Garden of Shadows event that many of the designers in Second Life are getting into that magical mystical spirit of the season as well. At the current round of Garden of Shadows many of the participating designers put out at least one, sometimes several, 10 linden gifts. There’s no need to join a group or wear a tag to purchase these event cheapies. While shopping the event I saw 10 linden gifts for the ladies, gifts for the gentlemen, unisex items, and even some home goods. I picked out three of the gifts to share with you, I hope you like them!

The Top – It’s no mistake that these Garden of Shadows event gifts I chose to share have a slight fortune telling theme to them. I’ve always had a fascination with the other worldly and mystical. This top is from a shop called Shinu Made. This mini crop top has a fun, macabre Ouija board print complete with dancing skeletons. It comes in three mesh sizes, and is just 10 linden.
Sizes Included – Slink, Maitreya, Belleza (There is a single mesh size for each body.)

The Necklace – The flat black kitty cat necklace Pru is wearing is another 10 linden gift at the Garden of Shadows shopping event. This one is from a shop called ProFect. It does not have any scripts, which makes it a low lag accessory, and it can be manually resized.

The Crystals – I think these Divination Crystals from Melt are a really fun, beautiful accessory/prop. They spin and rotate as if propelled by magic. This Garden of Shadows gift is also just 10 linden. Along with the spinning animation, they have their own hold pose to complete the effect. Also included is a color change hud for the crystals that gives you 8 color options.

Here are the details, enjoy!

Hunt Nevermore

Nevermore
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! Happy Sunday-funday! So I’m sure you’ve noticed, I’ve been into the hunts happening around the grid lately. There are so many! Today I have some Nevermore hunt prizes I’m excited to share with you. The Nevermore hunt is a dollarbie hunt, so all the prizes are just 1 linden. As I am sure you guessed by the name of the hunt, many of the gifts are loosely Edgar Allen Poe or “The Raven” themed. The hunt item you’ll be searching for is a paper letter.

The Circlet – I’m a sucker for a pretty circlet. I think they should be an everyone kind of fashion accessory, and not just for witches and elves. Though I’ve been called one of those! hah. This particular moon and star dangle circlet is the 1L Nevermore hunt gift at Harambee. It comes in 3 color/metal versions and has resize scripts.

Hint – Search the inSanity shop.

The DressTrashed put out this sexy little dress as their Nevermore hunt prize. Like all the Nevermore hunt gifts, this one is just 1 linden. It comes in several mesh sizes, in the single purple fabric with black details version shown.
Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass) Standard Mesh (s,L), eBody

Hint – A love letter left at table height for you to find at midnight

The Boots – Believe it or not these Spotlight boots are black! They have such a high shine to the texture that it gives them the almost silver metallic look shown in the photo. These sassy stiletto lace-up boots come in several sizes for mesh avatars. They are also Spotlight’s 1 linden Nevermore hunt prize.
Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus)

Hint – Light a candle, or two, or three. 

The Furniture –  I kinda love this furniture set from Kitty Creations. It might even become a permanent setting in my own personal space. This full set including the cuddle bench, leather ottoman with drinks, rug (not shown), and birdcage with a raven are all part of the dollarbie Nevermore hunt gift from Kitty Creations.

Hint – Find a place to sail away and nevermore be seen.

Here are the details, happy hunting!

Color Me Beautiful

Happy Tuesday FabFree!

I hope everyone’s week as set off to a great start! I have had quite a busy morning today, but while browsing our FabFree group gifts I saw this cute and festive romper and couldn’t resist the urge.

The colors in the design on the top half of the romper are so bright and fun and the teal used on the bottom half and through out the outfit was eye-catching and drew me to this piece!

I feel like calling off the day to be with you

I feel like calling off the day to be with you

I was digging through my inventory this morning, came across this applier lingerie, and felt compelled to photograph it. It is simply elegant and sexy, and quite often that’s enough.

It is a free group gift from ba! designs and the group is free to join. There are classic pants and shirt layers if you’re not rocking the mesh, a TMP applier, and an omega applier. The store also has a few other nice group gifts that are worth checking out. Enjoy! ❤

I feel you whisper across the sea

I feel you whisper across the sea

Ohhh Fab Free, I’m so excited about today’s post. Yesterday, Blueberry sent out a new group gift! It is free with a free group join. And just like everything else from Blueberry, it’s absolutely flawless and comes in the fatest of fatpacks!

Meet Mimi

This sweet little dress has a slight ruffle along all of the edges, a great cut out in the middle, and ties at the chest. I’m in love. Do I say that too often? Maybe so, but I just can’t help it. I already mentioned the fatpack, and let me tell you – it comes packed full of plain colors, a bunch of patterns, and some ombres too. Plus there are panties that can be turned off and on, as well as changed to any of the solid color options. The sizes included are:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

To get the free gift, you don’t need to go to the store – just join the group and check the group notices! The dress is there waiting for you. Right now the group is free to join. I read either on flickr or group chat that the free group join is just supposed to be for yesterday, today it is supposed to go back up to 20L. However, I checked this morning and it’s still free! But seriously, even for 20L this dress is totally worth it. And there are a bunch of other really great group gifts on the wall in the store so you’ll want to pop over there and grab those too if you haven’t already.

Netflix and Chocolate

Netflix & Chocolate
Hi hi Fab Free’rs! What do you do when it’s 3am and you can’t sleep? Get out the chocolate, make some coffee, and binge watch something on Netflix. That’s what I do anyway. I also might do a little hunting in Second Life. Just recently the Sweet & Sour Hunt began, and there are several great shops participating. The Sweet & Sour Hunt is a dollarbie (1 linden) hunt which will run through July 15th. I picked up a couple of the prizes and am excited to share two of them with you today.

All things considered this dollarbie Sweet & Sour Hunt prize from X.T.C. Poses couldn’t be more perfect for someone like me. Aptly named “Netflix n …Chocolate” this pose is one of two Sweet & Sour Hunt prizes at X.T.C. Poses. This pose includes the coffee and chocolate along with the static pose for just 1 linden. That’s a steal of a deal if you ask me!

HintF (shown) – Maybe I should phone a friend for help? / M (not shown) – Grab a soda, might help you think

Trashed is also participating in the dollarbie Sweet & Sour Hunt. Their hunt prize is this cute bandeau style mesh top. The dollarbie top from Trashed comes in a few sizes in the single blue/grey color shown.
Mesh Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, eBody, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Standard Mesh (small, large)

Hint – Flaunting at Midnight

Here are the details, happy hunting!

Not Goodbye, but Thank You

Butterflies

Not Goodbye, but Thank You…

I looked long and hard for the right quote to begin this post and the only one I could find that was fitting was this:

“This is not goodbye, my darling, this is a thank you.”

To all of you Fabulous readers, to my FabFree team… to those who gave me hunt tips… and to my hunting partner-in-crime Damian, “Thank you” for what would have been three glorious years of blogging coming up this next month.

I Do have to say Farewell for now, however, and so this will be a parting post. If only for a while. Real life has intruded in the form of some health issues and I have to take some time to focus on myself. I will still take some pictures and keep up my Flickr as time allows with my partner-in-crime and hunting buddy that you all have read about now and then and who I am finally giving a name to… my beloved Damian.

And now… the gifts:

This beautiful green dress is one of many free gifts at the anniversary round of We  ❤ RP right now. Don’t worry if you can’t get in right away, as it’s going on all month. You’ll find this dress at the Entice booth. “Be My Wench” comes in sizes to fit TMP, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Venus, and a Fitmesh.  There is also an alpha included.

Zoom in…

If you zoom in on my hands in the picture you’ll notice my nails… errr claws. I couldn’t resist these Maitreya exclusive claws in black for Maitreya Bento Hands. They are by Meva and move with your Bento animations. They are gorgeous! These are also free at We ❤ RP. Pick them up while you have the chance!

Jewelry anyone?

I am a lover of pretty baubles and my jewelry is free this month too. Just slap the subscriber at Graffitiwear and you’ll get this Sunstone set which includes the necklace, earrings and a ring. The entire set matches perfectly and goes well with the Be My Wench Dress.

And Fameshed!

Love showed you some great gifts from Fameshed in her post [here]. I had gone and checked out the booths and just like We ❤ RP, it is their anniversary round and there are glorious free gifts to be had. If you stop by the Elikatira booth, clicking the gift box with your free Fameshed group active will give you a gift box with three hairs inside! Each is a fatpack of essential colors. I’m showing off Maren in the picture above.

Last but not least…

… my swarm of butterflies (and the tiny little butterfly hair piece which is separate from the swarm) are also a free gift at Fameshed. Just pick them up from the Wasabi Pills vendor, unpack and wear! The hairpiece is perfect for a pretty addition to any hair and the swarm is perfect for photographs.

At last…

One last word… thank you to all of you for everything. I’ve enjoyed every picture, every kind word, every blog post, every reader tip and comment. You are all wonderful. Thank you for being part of my adventure with FabFree. I hope to see you all again when my real life allows!  ❤ Astrid ~
