Pastel Princess

Pastel Princess
Hello again Fab Free’rs! Welcome back to the Fab Free blog. I’m gonna just come out and say it, I think this super girly look is so stinkin’ cute! I hope you think so too. It makes me think of pastel goth looks and a more grown up version of some of the kawaii styles I often see. In this post I’ll tell you all about the lace top Pru is wearing from Baii Maii, and the jewelry from Yokai.

Let There Be Lace

Love actually pointed this sweet sexy lace top out to me, and I’m so glad she did. This semi-sheer lace top by Baii Maii is a Marketplace Dollarbie. Baii Maii appears to be a Marketplace only store at this time. This dollarbie halter style top comes in several mesh sizes, and includes a color change hud. The color change hud allows you to pick a completely custom color for each of 3 parts. The ruffles, the main part of the top, and the ribbon edges can each be colored independently. I love the overall look of this top. Also, the ruffles and laces connect cutely in the back, leaving the back mostly open.

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

Little Stars

Each of the pieces of jewelry Pru has on is a FREE gift at Yokai. The earrings, the choker, and the face stars are all separate FREE gifts with no group required. The necklace includes a color change hud that lets you pick between a few pastel color options for the cloud, and gold or silver for the stars and chain. The prim face stars come in gold only. The earrings can change colors via touch menu, and will allow you to choose gold or silver. The earrings and necklace can also be resized manually. Each of these FREE gifts can be purchased at Yokai for zero linden.

P.S. There are also several other FREEbies at Yokai, none of which require a group!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Goodnight Dolores

Cranberries
Hello there Fab Free’rs! I’m happy you’re here, even though my post might be a little bit somber. As you may or may not have heard, the world lost another iconic musician yesterday. Dolores O’Riordan of the Cranberries passed away leaving behind a legacy as one of rock music’s beloved front women. Dolores was an incredibly talented musician and so much more to those that knew and loved her. She was definitely one of the women I deeply admired as a young person and am still inspired by. I could continue with an entire blog post, or two, speaking about my admiration for Dolores O’Riordan, and the many ways she’s influenced my life and the lives of countless others. I won’t. I’ll just end this explanation and tribute by saying how saddened I am to learn of her death, and how deeply I appreciate her and the incredible gift that is the music she left behind.

A Tribute in Plastik

In tribute to Dolores O’Riordan the designer at Plastik put out this little crop top featuring some of the better known lyrics from one of the most recognized songs by the Cranberries. The halter style top reads “In Your Head, In Your Head, Zombie, Zombie” which was very much a politically charged grunge rock anthem, and still is.  The top comes in several mesh sizes, and is completely FREE for everyone. You can purchase yours at the Plastik main store for zero linden.

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

The Situation has EscalateD

To go with the top from Plastik I picked up the most recent Fab Free group gift hairstyle from EscalateD. To me it has a very ’90s grunge rock aesthetic. The style comes in 2 sizes, each with or without the little stars. This Fab Free exclusive gift also includes a “Fab Free” color hud which has black hair with a wide range of brightly colored ends. There is also a color change hud for the little stars. To get your copy of this edgy hairstyle, just wear your Fab Free group tag and click the gift vendor at EscalateD. As always, the Fab Free group is FREE to join.

Queen for a Day

Queenz
Oh Hello There! Welcome back to the blog Fab Free’rs! I’m excited you’re here. I’m also pretty darn excited about this dress, and the little clutch I found to go with it. It’s Saturday and I’m so ready for a night out, and now I’ve something sexy to wear. Keep reading and I’ll tell you how to get the dress and clutch without breaking your linden bank.

Queenz

I think Pru looks like a sultry Queen in this FREE group gift dress from Queenz. It is undeniably revealing, however I think it’s equally elegant looking with the long sleeves and soft dark fabric. The gown comes in several mesh sizes and includes a color change hud with 5 color variations. At this time the Queenz group is FREE to join making this fabulous dress absolutely FREE, all you need is group space.

Mesh Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), eBody Curvy, Slink Hourglass

Swallow

The one irksome thing about most gowns, no pockets. That does however give a girl an excuse to get a matching clutch! I stumbled across this cute studded heart-shaped clutch at Swallow. It’s one of their more recent group gifts, there are several currently available. This gift includes 2 of the clutches, they are identical except one attaches to the right hand and the other to the left hand. Which doesn’t sound like a big deal, but it really does make things so much easier. There is also a color change hud with 12 color options for the main part of the clutch, 4 color options for the hardware, and 4 options for the spiked studs. Currently the Swallow group is 40 linden to join.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

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!

Hot Elegant Malvada Mujer

Wait Just a Minute
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! I hope this post finds you well. I have had so much going on, I am not even sure what day it is. One thing I am sure of however, is that I am loving this look made of group gifts and cheapies from Hot Elegant Clothing and La Malvada Mujer. There is something empowering about putting together such a daring look. Second Life lets me experiment with fashion in ways that I might not otherwise. I hope you have as much fun with these items as I did!

Hot Elegant Clothing aka HEC

This revealing outfit is the most recent group gift at HEC. This tiny bandeau style top paired with short shorts are ultra sexy on. Each piece can also be worn separately. This FREE group gift outfit from HEC comes in several mesh sizes and has a customization hud that lets you choose from a few color presets for the belt. There is also a few customization options for the top such as transparency, and the option to hide or show the belt. To get your copy simply join the Hot Elegant Clothing group for a one time fee of just 25 linden, then click the group gift vendor.

Mesh Sizes Included: Standard Mesh ( xxs – L ) w/Alpha Layer, TMP, Maitreya Lara, Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Belleza (Isis, Venus, Freya)

La Malvada Mujer

I don’t mind telling you that I am living for this eye makeup look from La Malvada Mujer. It’s one of several equally edgy and stunning color options in a recent group gift applier set. Called the Nefelina Eyeshadow, I picked up this FREE group gift by first joining the La Malvada Mujer group, it’s FREE to join, and checking the notices. You’ll see this FREE group gift went out on January 3rd, so it should be available for a few more days at least. Finally, this army green-ish lip color is an inexpensive find at the La Malvada Mujer location. I picked up the Underwood Lips for just 10 linden while browsing through the shop. There are 8 total lip colors including this dark green shade Pru is rocking. If the green isn’t something you’d enjoy, there is bound to be at least one you’ll love. Both the eye shadow and lipstick are appliers only.

Makeup Appliers Included: Omega, Genesis

Fab Free Designer Friday – 01/05/2018 – Liquid

Liquid Front Entrance
Hello Again Fab Free’rs! I’m bringing this Fabulous Friday to a close with the Fab Free Designer Friday post. This week I have the pleasure of featuring a little shop called Liquid. As far as I am aware, Liquid is a fairly recent shop in Second Life. Their products are mostly mesh and applier eyes, makeup, and some tattoos.  While these items are predominately for the females, there are also products for the gents, and even some unisex finds. Generally speaking the appliers sold at Liquid are meant for Catwa or Lelutka head users, but I’d keep an eye out for more offerings in the future. That’s not an insider hint, just a personal opinion. One of the things I really like about Liquid is that it is a very well organized, easy-to-shop-at store. Also, all the information about Liquid, including events and group gifts can be found all in the same spot just as you enter the store.
Liquid Desk close up
As I said, everything you could need, the group joiner, subscriber, event information, it’s all right here at the desk as you enter Liquid. This is also where you’ll find the group gifts Liquid currently has to offer. To the left is the Liquid group gift, a gorgeous lipstick applier. You’ll need to join the Liquid VIP group to grab this gift, which is currently FREE to join. To the right I’m sure you recognized the Fabulously Free in SL group joiner. Those lovely blue eyes are an exclusive gift for Fab Free group members. Don’t forget to wear your Fab Free group tag! Also, I’m sure I don’t need to tell you the Fab Free group is FREE to join. The Fab Free gift is a good example of one of the unisex items at Liquid. Don’t miss out on these pretty freebies! Happy shopping Fab Free’rs.

New Year New Everything

New Year New Everything
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! It’s a new year, so why not make everything new?!  Recently I posted about new skins and even some lingerie. Today I’m having fun with some furry new friends, a cute new outfit, and a brand new space to call home. Keep reading to find out the how and where you can get each of these FREE or inexpensive items. First, let’s talk about these adorable fur babies!

Puppies!

The adorable little guy on the cushion is not only as cute as he can be, he’s also completely FREE. You can pick this little guy up at Japonica, he is a FREE gift from TLC Animated Animals. Part of what makes him (or her!) so adorable is that he is animated. This little puppy wags his tail and moves his head. There are also little particle feathers that come up out of the cushion where the little rascal tore it. To take him home all you need to do is purchase the box for zero linden from the TLC shop at Japonica.

The second equally adorable puppy in my arms is also at Japonica. There several variations of this furry friend by Who What, each wearing a pretty little kimono. These pups are a gacha item, the one I have is called “Friday” and is one of the common gacha prizes from the Who What gacha at Japonica. This sweet puppy has the hold animation shown (the ground sit is part of Pru’s AO) as well as a typing animation. When you type in local chat the pose will change so that you are holding your puppy and vertically instead of horizontally and cute hearts and butterfly particles are emitted. To get your sweet kimono wearing pup just play the Who What gacha for 48 linden per play.

MOoH!

If you haven’t checked out the more recent Fab Free group gift listing, you should. This sweater and leggings combo is the current Fabulously Free in SL group gift from MOoh. It’s the kind of outfit that can be perfect for a lazy casual day or be dressed up for a comfortable yet put together look. The outfit comes in several mesh sizes and includes a color change hud that lets you choose the color of the sweater. The Fab Free group is always FREE to join, if you’re not already a member.

Kraftwork

Did you happen to notice the gorgeous textures in the room Pru’s sitting in? This photo is a narrow view of the studio apartment style skybox group gift at Kraftwork. This one room skybox is beautifully textured and comes in a “daylight” and a “moonlight” version. The shades and hues are slightly different depending on which version you use. I chose the daylight version, and the appearance of light through the windows is from the windlight settings I used. I love the added illusion of an exterior treeline through the windows. To get your copy of these pretty little skyboxes just join the Kraftwork group and click the group gift vendor near the landing point. The Kraftwork group is just 25 linden to join.

Chocolate Lola
Happy New Year Fab Free! I hope you’re all looking forward to a brand new year, I know I am. It feels good to be excited for the future. For my first post of 2018 of course I found pretty lacy things! I also wanted to share with you another of the still available group gifts at Pumec. I showed the Pumec December group gift in my last post “Pumec Cherry” and was inspired to show more. First, the floral bra and panties set by Chocolate Atelier!

Chocolate Atelier at Japonica

While waiting to cheer in the New Year, I came across a new-to-me event called Japonica. As the name would suggest the entire event is Asian themed. I came across a small number of gifts while exploring the event, and this bra and panties set from Chocolate Atelier was one of those “I must have that” moments. The set is completely FREE, just click the vendor and buy the gift for $0 linden. This FREE gift at Japonica includes appliers and classic system layers in 2 color variations. I added a copy of the vendor ad by Chocolate Atelier so you can get a good look at this fabulous FREE gift.

Appliers Included: Slink, Omega, Maitreya, Belleza, TMP

Pumec

As I mentioned above, this lovely face is a past group gift at Pumec that is still currently available. I showed the current group gift in my last post “Pumec Cherry.”  This FREE group gift was the November gift at Pumec, her name is Lola, and I love her! Lola comes in a complete fat pack with body applier huds for each skin tone, a head applier for each tone, classic system layer skins, and a matching shape.  Currently the Pumec group is 299 linden to join, and there are several gifts available.

Pumec Cherry

Pumec Cherry
Here I go, here I go, here I go again. Fab Free’rs, what’s my weakness? Skin. Really though, I do love a well-made inexpensive skin. So for this Sunday Funday post I am excited to share with you not only this super cute group gift skin from Pumec, but the just as cute group gift sweater from Cubic Cherry also. I hope you love these awesome group gifts!

Pumec

Like many of us in Second Life, I’m on a very tight linden budget. It’s how I found Fabulously Free in SL many years ago. It’s why I blog what I find, so I can help others like me who want to look fantastic in Second Life and not spend a fantastic amount of linden. That said I finally decided I just had to join the Pumec in-world group. It has a moderate join fee of 299 linden, however the fee more than pays for itself with this December group gift alone.  Also, there are past group gifts still available. This pretty Pumec skin is named Kendra and she comes in a full fatpack. In this gift you’ll get all-in-one body applier huds for each skin tone, a Catwa head applier that works for each skin tone, a set of classic system skins, and a shape.

Body Appliers Included: Maitreya, Belleza, Slink, Omega     Head Applier Included: Catwa Only

Cubic Cherry

I love the look of this sweater from Cubic Cherry. It’s one of those items that looks as good on as it does in the ad. This cute billowy sweater is a new group gift. The Cubic Cherry group does have a one time join fee of 66 linden, however there are many group gifts available. All you need to do to get your copy of this “Princess” sweater is head over to Cubic Cherry, join the group, and click the gift vendor.

Mesh Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass

Fab Free Designer Friday – 12/29/2017 – Loordes of London

Loordes of London Exterior
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! This week seemed to fly by, maybe it’s all that Christmas cheer. This weeks Fab Free Designer Friday post is all about Loordes of London. At this shop you’ll find a lot of everything from jewelry and shoes to dresses and sweaters. Most of the items are fully mesh and both priced and styled well. The style is what I would call classic. There is a lot of attention to detail in the items at Loordes of London.
Loordes of London Events & Info
As you enter the Loordes of London store, you’ll see the desk with the usual information including the group joiner, and a Marketplace link. There’s also a little pink package on the desk that says it’s the January gift at Loordes of London. You can pick it up for just 10 linden. Also, I thought I’d let you know that I did notice several hunt items just waiting to be found as I browsed the shop. In the same section of the store as the circulation desk is a long wall of events, group affiliations, and hunts. In the same area is also where you can pick up the Fab Free exclusive gift from Loordes of London. Just wear your Fab Free group tag. If you’re not already in the Fab Free group, it’s always FREE to join. As if that wasn’t motivation enough, the Loordes of London shop has 3 wings and 2 stories full of fashion to explore.
