You Know Everything


You Know Everything

Hello Fab Free’rs, this post is going to be a little bit different in that it’s all about the new male head gift at Akeruka, and a new group gift couples pose at WRONG rather than ladies fashion. Thankfully I have this handsome gentleman of mine here to help. The Akeruka head wouldn’t look even half as good on me as it does on him! Keep reading, and I’ll share more about each of these fantastic group gifts.

That face! The Akeruka Clay head is the latest group gift for Akeruka group members. This male head is a full Akeruka Deluxe mesh bento head complete with animations. Also included with this gift is the Akeruka skin in multiple tones with facial hair options, and body appliers for Slink (Omega), Signature (Omega), and Belleza bodies. The Akeruka group has a one time join fee of 150 linden. To get yours you will need to wear your Akeruka group tag, and pay the gift vendor 1 linden. This gift will be available until July 6th. After July 6th, the Clay head will be for sale at the regular price.

The pose Blue so patiently sat in with me while I took this photo is a free group gift at WRONG. There are actually several group gifts at WRONG, and the store group is free to join. I like the potential narrative this pose lends itself to. The pose is named “You Know Everything” which I also liked. It’s true, Blue pretty much knows everything. This free group gift at WRONG includes individual his and hers poses, along with a cool modern chair to pose in. I’ll include a copy of the vendor ad for this pose by WRONG below so you can get the full effect.

WRONG. You know everything

Here are the details, happy shopping!

It’s always refreshing to see Designers offering high quality gifts for the men of Second Life.  As Ms. Aline said in her report on the Access Event, the men have not been ignored when it comes to gifts. Nearly every vender of men’s wear has set out a very nice surprise for us. And as Ms. Aline also said: beware the lag! Cam Shopping is the way to go.

All Access

All  of the following items are free at the Access Event when you join the free group. Just wear your tag and help yourself.

Let’s start with my decision not to shave today. Or should I say, selectively shave today. This suave razor cut is from Fe Style. Facial hair style ‘V. GG’ comes with a Catwa and an Omega applier.

Like the shades? These Steampunkish glasses are the ‘Epic Glasses’ from Noir. You’ll get a huge HUD to change every surface to your choice of one of four metal colors. A note here as well on the solid quality of the build. Every detail is spot on.

I know a lot of men don’t like jewelry but I’m not one of them. Like most things in life, it all depends on the quality of the piece. This pendant from Aitui fits the bill perfectly. This is the “Forged Steel Snake” in a deep mahogany color. The necklace is completely resizable to get a correct fit on any body.

Last but not least, my pose is from “Wrong” but it is so right. “W33” comes in four variations and includes a cigarette for the pose. (Don’t tell Juli… she hates smoking) I’ve included a picture of all four poses for you perusal.

A Sharp Start to the New Year

Dressed for Success

Happy New Year, Fabulous Readers!  The other day, I told you about the Sense Event, showed a free gift I picked up there, and mentioned that there was another present there for the guys.  I decided to start off 2019 by sporting the second outfit I picked up – the Casey Formal Set by Alter.  Again, the generous designer has tucked everything you need for a complete outfit inside this free package.

Dressed for Success

Featuring a long sleeve, button down shirt, gleaming black trousers and lace up shoes all in black, this outfit is sharp looking, and can easily take you from a casual day of shopping with your lady to a night out on the town.  I really like the sheen of the pants because they contrast just enough with the top to add visual interest, yet still coordinate with the ebony theme.  The shoes are worn separately, but the clothing comes as a packaged set, so getting dressed quickly is a snap.  To add Casey to your SL closet, travel to the Sense Event, activate the Teleport Hub group tag (10L join fee) and click the vendor.  The free box contains versions for classic as well as mesh avatars, but I did have to switch to a different mesh body than my usual Belleza because there is no Jake option in the package.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layers)
  • Signature
  • Slink
  • TMP
  • Shoes for classic, Signature, Slink and TMP

Until my next post, happy shopping!

Here we are now, entertain us

Here we are now, entertain us

Hi! I went a little overboard on the group gifts in this post. I was browsing through my inventory and one thing led to another and they all ended up on at the same time. I’m enjoying the vibe though, it’s very 90s punk rock and had me singing Nirvana to myself.

Versatile Dress

My dress is from Avale. It’s a really great little black dress that is a necessity in every inventory. This dress would be great dressed up but clearly it’s also very versatile because I did this kinda punk thing with it and I think it works beautifully for that too. To get the dress I just tped over to Avale, joined the free group, and clicked on the picture of a present to get my free group gift. It comes in sizes for:

  • Freya Perky
  • Hourglass
  • Isis Perky
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • TMP

Punk Staple

I can’t believe how well made and perfect this plaid shirt is that I’m wearing tied around my waist. Coco gives out the best group gifts and if you don’t believe me just get an eyeful of the huge wall of past gifts available in the store. This newest free group gift can be snatched up as well by joining the free group and it includes sizes for Freya, HG, Isis, MT and Slink.

But first let me take a selfie

The cell phone that I’m using comes with 6 poses – 3 male and 3 female. I love a good selfie pose, don’t you? Both the phone and the poses are free group gifts for the Dubai Event VIP group. My link will take you to the group profile. Just join the group (it’s free) and check the past notices for the box. The gift is there waiting for you.

Watching the Waves Roll In

Watching the Waves Roll In

Hello there, Fabulous Readers!  Rip and I are just popping in with a quick post to share a time-sensitive hunt gift with you.  Gavin has shown you a couple of the Men Only Hunt Prizes in his posts {HERE} and {HERE}.  My top today is another one of the free goodies you can scoop up as you follow the trail of this hunt…. but don’t delay because the MOH ends at 8am on August 18th.

Casual Comfort

The coral colored button down Vivien shirt from A&D Clothing oozes casual comfort with its untucked style and last button unfastened.  I really like the detail in the white stripes and the pushed up sleeves.  In case you are aiming for a more refined look, a HUD is included in the package that allows you to select a tucked version, however, it didn’t work with the particular jeans I pulled on before leaving the house.  I was in a free spirited mood, so it was all good.  The box includes versions for popular mesh bodies as well as one for classic avatars, so it will fit a variety of SL residents.  Best of all, it’s free!  All you need to invest is a bit of time searching around, and honestly, it wasn’t really that hard to find the black mustache hunt icon hidden in the shop.

Versions Included:

  • Classics (one size – includes alpha layer)
  • Adam
  • Geralt
  • Gianni
  • Jake
  • Slink
  • TMP

Until next time, happy hunting!

~ Stan (Kat)

Rebellion

Rebellion

Poor Gavin. His car broke down, and I’m on my way to pick him up. But at least he was able to find some awesome gifts before his old car took its last gasp.

A Rebel With a Cause

Rebellion recently set out this Rebellion t-shirt as their newest group gift. It comes in loose, normal, and tucked versions, and in the following mesh sizes:

  • Standard mesh XS-L with an alpha layer
  • Adam
  • Aesthetic
  • Belleza Jake
  • Gianni
  • Slink
  • TMP

Lots of previous gifts, such as these Aviator Glasses, are still available.

Crunchy

Gavin’s hair is the latest group gift from No.Match. No Crunch is a long, dreadlocks-style hair for men and women.

A HUD containing 36 different hair colors is included, as well as two HUDs with 24 colors (12 each) for the scarf.

There are TONS of previous gifts for both men and women still available at No.Match, making the 50L join fee totally worth it!

Enjoy!

❤ Serena

‘Cause if you want to blow my mind then blow my mind

'Cause if you want to blow my mind then blow my mind

You guys, the gifts that all of the designers have put out for the 6th anniversary of Cosmopolitan are really nice! I’ve been really pleased with everything and had a hard time deciding what to wear first. There is an easel when you first go through the doors with a group joiner so you can join the free “!!Cosmopolitan Club and Lounge!!” group. I joined the group and was able to pick up a gift from most of the designers, all for free. Here’s a little play by play of what I put together:

Rings

I have to start with the gift from Meva. I was shocked when I unpacked these rings. Not only do I already have these rings in silver and love them, but I paid for them. And now you can get them as a free gift! The free gift includes the rings in gold for each hand, plus a HUD that allows you to hide and show them.

Hair

The hair that I’m wearing is the free gift from Limerence. It’s a super cute little updo with a braid wrapped around. It comes in a nice variety of fun colors.

Top

I love a cute little corset top and this one is lovely. It is the free gift from Tachinni. It comes in a pretty, pale pink shade and has laces down the back that can be adjusted with an included HUD – you can change the colors of the laces and make them longer or shorter. It includes 4 mesh sizes: Freya, Hourglass, Maitreya, and Isis.

 

All 3 of these gifts can be picked up at Cosmopolitan. There’s already been a bit of Cosmopolitan coverage on FabFree, specifically here, here, here, and here. Enjoy!

A “Berry” Fine Discovery

Cascade

Hello there, Fabulouses!  I’m popping in with a quick post to share a budget friendly shirt that I picked up as a hunt item.  When Ripley and I were shopping at the Trashed store, he kept tugging on his leash, and dragged me over to a tiny strawberry that had been concealed in the shop.  It is the hunt object for The 4 Seasons Hunt, which runs through June 26th.  We weren’t following the hunt trail, but I’m sure glad the pupster spied that berry!  For just one Linden dollar, I picked up a terrific top.   The Cascade shirt has a black and gray paisley print on the long sleeve undershirt with a solid black tee shirt over it.  The pair needs to be worn as a duo, but I like the combination of the two, and will definitely wear this more often when the fall temperatures hit.  The package includes versions for a variety of mesh bodies, but not for classic avatars.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Adam
  • Aesthetic
  • Gianni
  • Jake
  • Slink
  • David
  • TMP

Until next time, happy shopping!

Beware: Hungry Designer Zombie

It's Time for Breakfast!

Welcome to breakfast, Err I mean hello Fabulous Readers.  I have resurrected the old classic Stan to bring you another free outfit from the big sale over at Kauna.  As I mentioned in my last post, most of the store is set for sale at zero Linden dollars.  I picked up a spiffy suit there yesterday, and spied a free role play/future Halloween outfit that I just couldn’t resist.

I’m Hungry….. Feed Me

Mr. Attack Dog Scardey Cat began to look nervous as I put on the shredded suit, started trembling when I wore the creepy zombie skin, then took off for the hills with his tail tucked between his legs as soon as I wore the angry face attachment!  I can’t say I blame him, though.  With realistic stains on the ripped fabric, and the pasty, bloodstained complexion, I don’t think I would have hung around long either… Ripley snacks or no Ripley snacks!  The free package includes so many items – it’s an incredible bargain for the grand price of zero lindens!  It is designed for classic avatars, hence the switch to the old Stan, but it was well worth the change in appearance.

What’s Included:

  • gray blazer with a white shirt
  • gray blazer with a blue shirt
  • navy blazer with a white shirt (shown)
  • navy blazer with a blue shirt
  • trousers in both gray and navy
  • handkerchief (not shown)
  • socks
  • zombie brogues (shoes)
  • zombie skin
  • angry face attachment (not worn for picture)
  • resizer
  • alpha layer

If you haven’t checked out the huge sale over at Kauna, I’d highly recommend you head there ASAP.  It won’t last long!  As for me, I’m going to hang out here under this sign for awhile in hopes that someone will bring me food…….after all, it does say “Zombie Feeding Area.”  A guy can dream, right?

A Sale Suits Me Just Fine

Oxford

Hello there, Fabulous Readers!  I’m popping in with a limited time offer that our male readers may want to take advantage of.  Currently, just about everything at Kauna, except gachas, is set to sale for 0L……yes, you read that right – suits, shoes, accessories, just about everything for free!  As soon as I heard about it, I popped on over to the sim and set to work purchasing some terrific additions to my SL wardrobe.

Suit Up!

Every guy needs a “go to” suit and 2BN Casual is going to be mine.  Complete with a jacket, waistcoat, button down shirt, handkerchief, socks, and belted trousers, this outfit is perfect for business casual, as well as a night on the town with your significant other by your side.  With the shirt, you can select from open or closed collar and tucked or untucked.  The best part?  After picking up this complete outfit for free, I have plenty of Linden dollars left for an extravagant evening!  The package contains versions for classic as well as mesh avatars.  Although there wasn’t a fit specifically for the Belleza mesh body, I was able to wear the Slink suit just fine.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in Small and Medium (includes alpha layers for blazer jacket only, shirt, and trousers)
  • Slink (Small and Medium for Slink)
  • TMP

Sneakers Just Won’t Do

With these new fancy duds, my gym shoes simply weren’t going to cut it.  I looked and looked, but I had no formal footwear in my inventory.  Lucky for me, the black Oxfords in my photo were also completely free at Kauna.  With neatly tied laces and just the right amount of shine, these classics provided the ideal finishing touch.  The package included shoes that I think were designed for non mesh avatars, but by adjusting the alpha layer on my Belleza mesh body, they worked out perfectly.

I’m going to head back to Kauna and set what else I can snatch up before this sale comes to a close.  There’s still time left for you to head over to the shop and complete some transactions on your own, but HURRY!  This sale will continue only until the end of May.  Until my next post, happy shopping!
