Aim For Wow

Aim For Wow 1

Hello Fab Free!  Ripley and I continued our journey along The Flowerage Hunt 2’s prize trail.  Even though he suffered some nasty scratches after our encounter with the clowder of felines (you can read about that adventure {HERE}), Ripley’s talented nose was still able to sniff out the female hunt gift at Sparrow by Design.   Hooray for tracking dogs! Sparrow by Design’s generous designer didn’t leave out the guys in The Flowerage Hunt 2.  Carson blogged the male gift in his post {HERE}.

Sunshine On My Shoulders

The Emily dress features a halter-style neckline, and a pretty blue and green floral print splashed across a white background.  Its dark belt calls attention to your slender waistline, and a silver metal ring adds a pop of shine.  This summery frock left my shoulders free to feel the warmth of the spring sunshine, while the loop around my neck made sure the sleeveless dress stayed in place.  This little number is perfect for an afternoon of shopping, but with the right accessories, it is easily glammed up for a date night.  One nice feature is that the gift package includes a white, cropped, quilted jacket that you could add when the sun starts to set, and the air becomes a bit chilly.  Since it was a lovely, warm spring day, I opted not to wear it for my photo shoot, but I was comforted in knowing it was there should I need it.

Aim For WOW 2

The Wow Factor

My Catwa mesh head applier is the May gift for members of the Wow Skins group.  With beautifully arched, dark eyebrows, and a clear, fresh complexion, this skin is flawless, and lovely.  A HUD with 6 shades ranging from Milk to Caffe’ is included.  I chose the Tan shade, and I just love the sweet, glowing finish on this skin.  I experimented with eyeliner and lipstick appliers, and had terrific success, so if you are looking for a date-ready appearance, this applier works well with added make up for a glamorous touch.  (In my pictures, I am wearing no make up).  The WOW group costs 450L to join, but if you are already a member, I’d highly encourage you to scoop up this stunning group gift.

Pretty in Pastels

Pastel
Hello Fab Free’rs, It’s been such a busy week for me, I’m just not sure why! lol Needless to say I’m always excited when I get to share my Fabulous finds with you. Even after all the time I’ve spent in Second Life, and all the experiences I’ve had, bargain hunting remains one of my favorite pastimes. The best bargains however, are the ones that come to you, no hunting required.

The Best Things in Second Life are Free

Just recently Graffitiwear sent out this beautiful jewelry set to their subscriber members. Each item in this FREE gift is beautifully detailed. The lovely pink floral image is perfect for spring, not to mention the upcoming Easter holiday. The full set is included in this gift from Graffitiwear. To get your copy, head over to Graffitiwear and join the subscriber. The gift will be delivered to you automatically. Already joined but missed the gift?

To compliment my new pretty baubles I picked up the latest Fab Free exclusive group gifts at Hello Dave, all 3 of them. Nope, that’s not a typo, Hello Dave has 3 nail applier sets out for FREE to all Fab Free group members. The nail color Pru is wearing is part of the matte Sweet Like Sugar set.

To get yours, wear your Fab Free group tag, and click the gift vendors at Hello Dave. Don’t forget, the Fab Free group is always FREE to join.

The Skin Pru’s In 

This lovely face is courtesy of WoW Skins, via their April group gift. I always like the combination of a soft smokey eye with a pale lip. The April group gift at WoW includes two classic system skins (one with a little extra cleavage), and an Omega applier that works for Omega compatible bodies and heads. To get this FREE group gift, you’ll need to join the WoW Skins group which carries a one time join fee of 450 linden.

Took a wrong turn

Took a wrong turn

Lost again

Hmm…this club has got a pretty solid farmyard concept going on though those patrons over there are definitely taking the funky chicken way too seriously. Oh, who am I kidding? I should have just asked for directions to the latest social hotspot instead of teleporting about willy nilly. Talk about being all dressed up with nowhere to go. -sighs- Enough with feeling sorry for myself, even if it’s too late to make a splash at some glitzy club with my outfit, I can still talk to you Fab Readers about it so let’s get on with the details! I’ll work from the top down as we have a lot to get through!

More hair accessories

No hair addict worth her salt is going to let a sale slip her by and when I saw that Fabia Hair was having a weekend Spring Sale I quickly er…sprung into action. While I was at the store oohing and ahhing over the fabulous hairstyles I spotted a little sign for this cute hairband displayed along with their group gifts and upon closer inspection saw that it was a donation item set out for the Spoonful of Sugar event to benefit Doctors Without Borders. Of course, I couldn’t resist adding it to my accessory collection. It’s sweet red and white color scheme and well-made hearts simply screamed at me to get a copy for my own. When I unboxed it, I discovered that you’ll also get a lightbox version of the headband with blinking lights in the hearts. Awesome! The headbands cost only 10L so do consider picking them up if you choose to stop by Fabia Hair’s 50% of Spring Sale. The sale itself is running until the 12th.

Birthday round

The Liaison Collaborative is celebrating it’s Birthday Round this month with the majority of participating merchants putting out a free gift at their stalls. While I was there I picked up the Stickwitu (do you remember the Pussycat Doll’s song of the same name?) dress from the Entice booth. This sleek bustier dress is certainly a saucy little number, isn’t it? I do love the eye-catching black on red color scheme and those symmetrical lines draw the gaze to just the right places. More importantly, the gift folder contains the following sizes:

  • 5 Fitmesh sizes (XXS-L)
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • Belleza Venus, Freya and Isis
  • Tonic Fine and Curvy
  • Maitreya
  • Ebody
  • TMP

There is also a nifty alpha layer included which certainly helps with the fitting. The Liaison Collaborative is running until the 30th of this month so hop on over to scoop up your free copy of the Stickwitu dress and more.

Fishnets

With all the talk about Sn@tch from Love {HERE}, {HERE}, {HERE}, {HERE} and Pru {HERE}, I decided to take some time to explore the new store build. Unfortunately, I haven’t really had to time to break out the fishing rod or to stalk the Lucky Letters but I did manage to snag this week’s Sn@tch and Grab. It’s always difficult for me to shop for socks, what with needing both appliers for the Slinks and classic clothing layers for the rest of my legs so I’m pretty thankful for stores like Sn@tch that pack everything in one folder. Their Fishnet Collection 2016 is on sale this week for 50L. Not only will you get a wide selection of fishnets (5 tops, 5 bottoms, gloves, stockings, and bodysuit) they’ll come in classic clothing layers as well as easy to use omega applier huds.  I’m wearing the fishnet tights in the picture above with the corresponding layer applied to the Slinks and was pretty happy with the results.

Took a wrong turn

Skin Sale

I’m sure all of us have one store that we visit routinely and for me, one of those is WoW Skins because of the Lucky Letter boards and Midnight Manias. Since they’ve joined the 30L Saturday and 35L Sunday events, however, I’ve been more than happy to stop by this skin store more often. Upon on sale is the Relitha skin (pictured above in the tan tone) All of WoW Skins products carry that signature glossy look and I really liked the eye makeup on Relitha, especially the wing tipped effect of the mascara. The Relitha skin package contains:

  • Two system skins in cleavage/no cleavage options
  • 1 Omega face and body applier
  • Brow shape

There are four other tones (Milk, Bronze, Darktan and Golden) up for sale as well going for 30L each.

Shoes

It’s been a while since I’ve snagged some free shoes for myself and was really happy to discover that Moda was offering the Cybele leather heels as a free gift for the Secondlife Frees and Offers group. These gorgeous heels are only for the Slink feet but you’ll get three different eye-popping animal prints (snake, zebra, leopard)  on the body of the shoe in your gift folder. If you’re not feeling up to walking on the wild side there is a classic all black version of the Cybele heels (shown) included in the prize package as well. The Secondlife Frees and Offers group is free to join, so if you have a slot open hit the group up and pick up your gift. While you’re there, try your luck on the no group needed lucky chairs or hit the midnight mania board there’s no group tag needed for that as well.

And that’s a wrap. Maybe I can still salvage this situation and get these chicks over here to help me coax the local goat into at least wearing a party hat instead of eating it. Till next time guys!

A day to celebrate

A day to celebrate

Where did I put that megaphone..?

Oh! Found it! -Ahem- To celebrate International Women’s Day, WoW Skins is holding a free join exercise for its store group. That’s right, the usual 450L joining fee has been waived only for today (March 8th) making it the perfect opportunity for you to get your hands on some awesome and free skins. Not only are group members treated to regular group gifts but past gifts are available to them as well. On top of that members are treated to generous Midnight Mania boards and Lucky Letters that change out regularly as well! The Ayah skin pictured above is an example of one of the many prizes that you can win from the Midnight Mania and if her sweet doll-like features haven’t already tempted you to take advantage of the free group to tap the board the prize package contains:

  • Two system skins in the tone Milk with cleavage/no cleavage options respectively.
  • Eyebrow tattoo layer in black and red(shown).
  • Tattoo layer to hide system eyebrows.
  • Four eyeliner options (tattoo layers)
  • Alpha layer to hide system eyelashes

Drag your bloke to the sale if he’s feeling like a makeover or get him to join the free group as well because there are awesome skins available for the menfolk too. Then you can sit back and enjoy the eye candy while you unpack your boxes and boxes of gifts. Sounds like a perfect day yesno?

And that’s a wrap. Happy International Women’s Day everyone! Have fun and stay safe out there, I’ll catch you later.

Flamingos and Squids

Flamingos and Squids

In preparation

It’s been a pretty long week for me IRL and with all signs, unfortunately, pointing to things getting more chaotic in the coming days, I turned to my Second Life and popped into the Baja Norte sim for some a much-needed breather. There’s still something calming about seagulls swooping about amidst the cresting waves, even though it’s just only in a virtual world. I had something skimpier in mind for this outing (hmm…come to think of it I’ve never actually worn a swimsuit to any of the beach sims I’ve visited), but a stop to Creator’s Collection Box changed my mind. Unlike Carson, who came away with one killer look, I quickly picked up the gift at the S@bbia booth. From its quirky print (flamingos are just adorable birds don’t you think?) to its pretty bowed sash, the (aptly named) Flamingo dress is simply darling.

The gift comes in only one mesh size, however, and without an alpha layer included. While arguably it’ll be easier for those with mesh bodies to find a fit thanks to their nifty alpha huds, I experimented with some of the alpha layers of other dresses that I already owned and found a good fit. Personally, I feel that the Flamingo dress was worth the effort especially when you take into consideration that it does come with a hud that lets you switch the dress between three colors (blue, red and white) technically making it three free dresses. Be sure to do a little more exploring if you visit this 2nd Anniversary round of Creator’s Collection Box as the majority of booths have great free gifts out.

A good pair of clogs

Seeing as I wanted to be able to dip my toes in the water or wriggle them in the warm sand, fussy boots or heels just wouldn’t do for this latest adventure. The sneakers had to stay at home too because who wants to spend their time cleaning sand out from the soles of their damp sneakers (yuck!). Luckily enough I came across a free fatpack of clogs from A&D Clothing and my footwear problems were quickly solved. These cute clogs are a sub-o gift at the store meaning that you won’t need to join any groups or free up those precious group slots to get your hands on them. Better yet this gift is unisex (that ‘special’ dude won’t have any excuses not to join you at the beach now) and can be worn with classic avatar feet (alpha layer and shoe base included). Did I mention that this gift is a fatpack? Well, you’ll also be getting a hud which lets you choose among twelve different colors with a section that’s dedicated to resizing tools as well. I’m still pretty tickled that I found this design in SL seeing as I’ve a couple of pairs of these out of the virtual world and see them all over the place besides. When do we get to choose the charms hmm?

Flamingos and Squids

So squids were mentioned

And here they are in the form of a cute pair of earrings from Frangipani Garden that’s also available as a free gift at Creator’s Collection Box. While I’m fully aware that you’re supposed to eat seafood and not wear it, these Takosan earrings were just too cute to pass up. The detailing on these earrings are amazing as is the subtle difference in the expressions between Mr. and Ms. Squid (well, I assume they’re Mr and Ms). While a resizer script is absent, permissions on these earrings are set to modify and copy so you can make as many backups as you like before making those changes if need be. Creator’s Collection Box runs until the 18th of next month so hurry down.

A sweet face

There’s a new group gift out at WoW Skins! I always look forward to the frequent gifts from this store and was pretty excited to unbox Preziosa. She has a slightly more mature look to her, I feel but still, has that sweet look and glossiness that are hallmarks of the WoW Skins. The neutral tones of the makeup on Preziosa are simply perfect. The gift package includes:

  • Two system skins in the Tan tone (one with cleavage and one without)
  • Omega applier hud for Head and Body

Other skin tones are available for purchase at the WoW Skins main store at a discounted price of 199L and it is 450L to join the group if you’re not already a member. Of course joining the group will mean access to the group only Lucky Letter and Midnight Mania boards that are always stuffed with goodies.

And that’s a wrap. I’ve got a sudden craving for takoyaki and hmm…where do I get some? Till later.

EDIT: Thanks to Ariel Starflare, I’ve been informed that there is now an alpha layer for the dress. Us classic avatars can rejoice!

Sun in my eyes

Sun in my eyes

All bright and shiny

Was it just me or did the weekdays feel exceptionally long this time around? It’s probably no use dwelling on things as time would certainly be better spent looking forward to the upcoming weekend. I’m not the only one either as Commander’s been pretty well behaved recently (not that there’s any carpet left for him to chew up) and even the spotty weather seems to be giving way to bright sunshine. Not wanting to let such a golden opportunity slip me by, I snuck in some time to practice doing headshots and to, of course, bask in the warmth.

Fridays made even better

Back when I was very very very new to Second Life, I heard about Fifty Linden Fridays and being the silly goose that I am thought that there was some place giving out 50 lindens every Friday. A little investigation proved that things were way better than I thought as this weekly shopping event always seemed to be filled with a diverse number of high-quality items that are going for just 50 lindens. I discovered some of my now favorite stores through FLF, an example of this being Wasabi Pills. For today’s current round of FLF, the store is offering the Vic hairstyle something that I snapped up right away for it’s cute and messy vibe. Don’t you think it’ll pair off really well with your slouchy outfits or if you’re going for that ragamuffin look? Anyway, the Vic hairstyle is non rigged mesh hair which means that it came be resized and repositioned. Permissions are set to copy so you can make as many backups as you want. Personally, I had no problems at all fitting the hairstyle and had a good deal of fun deciding between the two bangs options (style A)  included in the package. Also included is an alpha layer and two different huds; one to control the color of the hairstyle and the other to control the color of the hair accessories. The Vic hairstyle will only be out on sale today so don’t hesitate to get your copy.

Smack!

It’s been a good long while since I’ve given any midnight mania board a good tap. Since the holiday rush has now become a thing of the past, I’ve gotten into the habit again and discovered that WoW Skins has added a new Midnight Mania board to its already generous lineup. This MM board is open to the public and currently, contains the Nour skin in tan. In the prize package, you’ll receive two system skins (one with cleavage and the other without), a brow shape and eyebrow tattoos. Choose between black or red eyebrows or if you have a totally different look in mind there is a tattoo layer provided that completely hides the eyebrows. Nour’s youthful look was simply perfect to spend my Friday in and I was more than pleased to have been able to get it for free.

At the time of writing this post, the target numbers for the Midnight Mania boards at WoW Skins has been lowered so go and give it a good smack. While you’re there try your luck at the no group needed lucky letter chairs or if you’re inclined, join the group to gain access to all the group perks (full access to MM boards and Lucky Letters as well as all past group gifts and the current one). WoW Skins has a one-time join fee of 450L.

And that’s a wrap. I’m going to go sit myself on a lounge chair somewhere and read up on how to re-carpet an apartment.  -Sighs- A least I’ll be warm while doing it.

A Mantra for the Weekend

Netflix Nutella and Naps

Those lovely long gone weekends.

Sometimes I can’t believe how fast those weekends zip by. It almost always seems that I blink and somehow teleported myself into another Monday. Hmm…I hope that isn’t some sort of hidden superpower manifesting itself but thankfully though I managed to make last weekend fruitful but getting into some hunts I’ve been meaning to do. Ever since I saw Pru’s post {HERE} about a pair of lovely and free boots from Perch, completing the Women Only Hunt 2 quickly made it’s way up to the top of my bucket list. This free hunt runs until the 24th of this month and there is a nifty hunt hud that you can pick up at the organizer’s main office which makes teleporting from store to store and getting hunt hints a breeze. Since I’m behind (what else is new yeah?) and am going to try my hand at doing a few hunts at once this really came in handy!

Back to knitwear.

In these chilly months, I’ve really come to miss my T-Shirts with their quirky quotes so opening up the hunt prize from American Bazaar and finding this oversized knit sweater was really a pleasant surprise. Not only is this comfy find well made and textured, I was also tickled by the caption on the front. Netflix Nutella and Naps…it’s good to have plans for next weekend don’t you think? This oversized sweater comes in five standard mesh sizing (XS-XL) with a good alpha layer to keep things nice and fitted. Just hunt out the snowflake at American Bazaar and this cozy addition to your wardrobe can be yours for free.

The thing about leggings…

Is that I can’t seem to get enough of them this season, especially the ones with the pretty prints and eye-catching colors. It’s a good thing then that the Women Only Hunt prize at Boutique #187 yielded up the Xmas knit beige leggings. Not only will these keep me warm while out on a jaunt on a snowy sim, the festive prints, and vivid colors certainly put me in a jolly mood. The Xmas leggings come in a system pants layer for those with a classic body and also a great hud that incorporates appliers for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink mesh bodies as well as mesh bodies compatible with the Omega system. It’s a great space saver where inventory is concerned so hunt out that snowflake and get your leggings for free.

Who does your hair again?

In this post {HERE} I mentioned two new group gifts from the Truth VIP group and pictured is the second style. While I don’t own a great many short hairstyles, I fell in love with the Irenka hairdo straightaway thanks to it’s casual, wavy style. That tousled look is perfectly paired up with the beanie and not only will you get a hud to play around with beanie customization you’ll also get the option for added bangs. As with the Irena hairstyle, the Irenka hairdo comes in a fatpack of colors too. The Truth VIP group has a one time fee of 350L but we’ve gotten 3 hairstyles so far so it’s a great deal.

Back to the hunt!

Two of my favorite skin stores are participating in the Women Only Hunt 2 and one of those is WoW Skins. While hunting I noticed that they had their December group gift out and I immediately picked it up as well. I’ve always adored the glossiness of the skins from this merchant and December’s group gift, Janette, didn’t disappoint. The subtle blush on the skin is so very pretty and really brings to mind how flushed skin looks when you’ve been out in the chill. December’s group gift consists of the Janette classic skin in Tan with cleavage/no cleavage options as well as Catwa and Omega appliers.  The Janette group gift is free to current members and it’s 450L to join. If you do decide to make the investment, past gifts will also be available to you as well as Lucky Letter and Midnight Mania boards.

Frosted sight.

As soon as I saw that Mesange was participating in the Women Only Hunt 2 I thought, well there goes my decision to stick to one eye color. I’ve really enjoyed wearing the expressive eyes from this merchant and their Women Only Hunt 2 prize is no different. The aptly named Ice Dream Eyes fits in perfectly for this snowy season and if you’re into role playing as supernatural creatures these frosty pair of eyes are something that you could wear all year round. The best thing about this hunt prize, aside from being free of course, is the fact that you’ll get not one but three different dreamy eye colors. Pictured are the blue pair but there are green and gray as well. In the prize package, you’ll receive for all three colors, system eyes, mesh eyes and a hud for the Genesis mesh head as well as the Omega hud for mesh heads compatible with that system.

And that’s a wrap. Happy Hunting dear readers! For more coverage of the Women Only Hunt 2 check out the following posts:

I Sing the Body Electric

Gaps in the wardrobe.

Gaps? But Sheidey what are you talking about? Some Second Life inventories are possibly related to literal black holes! In all seriousness, though I took a good long look at the theoretical mass (and mess!) that is my inventory and realized that I didn’t have very many options when it came to pants. Needing a quick fix and seeing as throwing away my dresses and skirts were out of the question, I decided to hit some sales. In my previous post {HERE} I mentioned a store called Wertina and not only do they sell some great shoes, but they also have a good variety of clothing items in stock as well. Pictured is the Biker pants in black that are simply a study in fitted leather and look great at any angle. The leather studs that go down on either side of the pants are a great feature just like the distressed leather detailing around the knees. The Biker pants come in five standard mesh sizes (XS-L) with an alpha layer included and cost just 15L because of the closing down sale that Wertina is holding. Pop down to the store to browse! With everything marked down to 5L-35L, you might just find something to fill up the gaps in your wardrobe too.  The closing sale at Wertina ends on the 31st of December.

More metallic goodness!

Now that I have a perfect pair of pants, I was determined to find some fitting footwear for it. Luckily enough Enertia is offering up the Kehlani heels as a free group gift and the metallic sheen to the straps and body of these shoes was exactly what I was looking for. Personally, I feel that the edgy style of these heels paired off nicely with the outfit, but if metallics aren’t your cup of tea there’s also a Hud included in the gift package with five other color options. What’s more, you’ll be getting sizing for Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza feet as well. Add the Kehalni heels into your shoe collection today by joining the Toxxic Designs Studios group for free.

It’s a hair affair!

Hairology has been a hot topic here with the ladies of FabFree and rightly so as the 1st Anniversary of the event is filled with awesome goodies from top quality designers. I found the final touch to my outfit there in the form of a dollarbie hair gift from Vanity Hair. Buns have such a bad rep for being uptight but this beautifully textured updo is simply elegant. Natural colors isn’t something that I’d usually go for when hairstyles are concerned but this gift and it’s Hud that contains four rich tones to choose from certainly inspired me to give the ‘naturals’ a chance. While there is no alpha layer provided, there’s a nifty resizer in the hud which makes fitting hassle free and the hairdo itself has copy permissions enabled so that you can make duplicates for backup. This round of Hairology closes at the end of the month so don’t miss out!

For more coverage on the gifts at Hairology check out these posts:

I Sing the Body Electric Headshot

 In plain sight.

While slapping the Midnight Mania boards at WoW Skins the other day I ran into (literally, thanks lag) this free gift in the games room. This very generous gift contains the classic Soraya skin in the tan tone with both cleavage/no cleavage options as well as appliers for Phat Azz, Slink Hands and Feet, Ghetto Booty and Lolas Tango. You’ll also receive a brow base and shape but my favorite aspect of this skin aside from the fact that it’s totally free are the two freckles tattoo layer that comes included in the package as well. My very first skin in SL was freckled as well so it was good to come back to the look after a while away.

Speaking of going back to old looks, I’ve gone back to blue-grey eyes as well after experimenting with different colored peepers. The aptly named Athena eyes are a free gift from Mesange and not only will you be receiving system eyes but mesh ones as well with Genesis and Omega Huds. I feel wiser already for snapping up this gift and maybe I’ll be sticking to this pair for a while.

And that’s a wrap. I’d like to wish a happy and safe Thanksgiving to those who celebrate it. Have fun out there dear readers. Till next time!

You can’t take the sky from me

You can't take the sky from me

Hello, hello,

Dear readers and welcome to the final edition of Edi’s Costume Ideas! With Halloween steadily creeping up on us, I was looking for something especially spooky to share with you today and I found it in No Cabide’s latest group gift. Aptly named Demon Girl, the outfit consists of a chic tube dress with a playfully plunging neckline. Little black dresses are a classic wardrobe staple and I’m happy to report this particular one caters to both classic and mesh bodies. For those of us with classic bodies, the Demon Girl dress comes in two sizes (Small and Large) with a spiffy alpha layer to help with the fitting. For those with mesh bodies, there are sizes for Maitreya, eBody, Slink Physique and Slink Hourglass.

Those little extras!

I’ve encountered so many generous creators in my Second Life shopping adventures and Athena Amulet of No Cabide is certainly one of them. Together with the dress, you will receive the wings, horns, tail and necklace pictured, all of which are mesh and exquisitely made. Footwear is not a forgotten detail and these lovely studded boots come in three standard sizes (S-L) with an alpha layer and boots base.

Did you get all that? Well, here comes the best part! The No Cabide group is free to join so you’ll be able to grab this outfit and take flight with no cost at all. How’s that for the icing on the cake?

Speaking of the sweet stuff…

Have you been to the Candy Fair yet? The event is running until the 31st of this month and is filled with sugary goodness. The majority of merchants have free gifts out so be sure to snap those up while you’re having a look see. One such example is the Willa hair from Wasabi Pills that I’m wearing in the picture. This cute two-toned hairstyle comes with an alpha layer and two sizes so that the flowing pigtails don’t cut into your front.

Hunts!

There are so many hunts going on this season and I’m just going to ahead and highlight two of them. The first is the Mega Halloween Hunt by WoW Skins and Like Designs. The objective is to root out 20 pumpkins (10 at WoW Skins and 10 at Like Designs) containing some great prizes for just 1L! Pictured is the Maram Skin, which is one such prize. In the package, you’ll get the beautifully glossy classic skin with cleavage/no cleavage options, a brow base and also system layer eyes! Oh and don’t forget there’s a 50% off sale happening at WoW skins until the 2nd of November.

The eyes have it

I’m not wearing the eyes included in the Maram package at the moment but only to show you another hunt gift that I picked up from Mesange for the Boo! Bunny Hunt that is running until the 31st of this month. I’ve always believed that working on the little details of your avatar is important and when I saw these eyes I could not get to the store fast enough! The blue-grey of the Storm eyes are absolutely hypnotic and in the gift, you’ll receive system eyes as well as mesh ones with an alpha layer. You’ll also receive Huds for the Genesis Mesh Head and a Hud for mesh heads using the Omega system. All of this for just 1L!

And that concludes my very first Halloween here at FabFree. I hope you’ve enjoyed my costume ideas and I wish you all the best in finding yours! If you’d like for me to do more themed segments, hit up the comments section to let me know!

Hello there to all you Fabulously Free readers! I’m Sheidey (but please just call me Edi) and I enjoy mulling over hunt hints, slapping midnight mania boards and long walks on the beach especially if they lead to a Kraken-themed unlucky dip. Truth be told, I hemmed and hawed a little over what to feature on my first post of this wonderful blog. Wings? No. Dress and boots combination? Maybe for later. Broken unicycle? Wait. How did that get into my inventory?

Mysteries aside, I finally settled on the hunt that’s running concurrently with the Fluffy and Fierce event. If the ‘cute with an edge’ look is right up your alley then hop on down to the event and pick up the hunt hint notecards from some of the participating merchants. The hunt item is hidden in their respective main stores so while you’re hunting you can get distracted by all sorts of lucky letters, group gifts, weasels, etc etc…It’s so much fun!

The outfit pictured is the Bring It On batwing set from Blasphemic that comes in five mesh sweater sizes and system layer ripped leggings with an Omega applier as well as appliers specific to popular mesh bodies. It also includes a studded belt that comes with a resizer hud. I love the laid back look and feel of the outfit and paired it up with a pair of boots that I got off the Midnight Mania board at Psychotic Neko. I do believe that it’s the first set of boots in my Second Life closet to have claws. Definitely made for walking.

To tie the whole look together, I’m wearing the Cella hair from Damselfly that you can get for free at the Crossroads event and the new group gift from WoW Skins called Angy. The simple hairstyle and fresh-faced skin just adds to the casual factor of the whole outfit. It was a lot of fun putting this look together and I hope you had fun reading my first post just as much as I enjoyed writing it!
