Roller Girl


Roller Girl

Come skate with me Fab Free! It’s always sunny in Second Life, so why not take advantage of the never-ending sunshine and cruise around the boardwalk while listening to some tunes. This cute roller girl look is made up almost entirely of free or inexpensive items, including the free-for-everyone bikini gift at Glitzz.

The month of June may be close to an end, but Pride is always. Needless to say I was excited to find this cute rainbow bikini for free at Glitzz, no group needed. It comes in a handful of sizes and includes a hud to change the metal bits that are part of the ties. To get your copy of this free gift, head over to Glitzz and find the gift vendor near the back of the store.

The blue striped knee socks are a dollarbie Marketplace find by a store called *1* Tsutsujiya Overknee World. They come in a classic system layer, an Omega applier, and a Maitreya applier.

Finally, these cute skates are another Marketplace find. I’d tell you the store name, but there doesn’t appear to be one. One quick side note, I think it’s worth mentioning that the creator’s profile is now completely blank. That said, these skates are just 49 linden on the Marketplace. Also, there are a few other versions for the same price. These skates come with resize scripts and have a skate AO that takes over when you walk or run. I did have to turn my regular AO off to have the skate animation work properly.

I hope you have as much fun with this Roller Girl look as I did!

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!

Get Into My Car


Get into My Car

There are some fashion items that though they speak of another decade, they are timeless. I feel that way about dresses with peter-pan collars. Needless to say, I had to show this dress by Fashionably Dead. It’s their free gift in celebration of Second Life’s 16th Birthday. I think it happens to go perfectly with Lamb’s gift hairstyle for SL16B, and the gift set of pastel lip colors Alaskametro has out as their free SL16B gift. I felt like a 1960s fashion model with a modern edge. Keep reading for more info on each of these fantastic freebies.

I really love this free SL16B gift dress by Fashionably Dead. It comes in a wide range of solid colors, and has a girlish but still grown up look to it. The Fashionably Dead shop for SL16B is located in the Gilded region. This cute dress comes in the following sizes for each color: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Isis, Freya).

This flowing over the shoulders hairstyle is the free SL16B gift by Lamb. It comes in a full fatpack of colors. It also has a hairbase style hud with the choice of hiding or showing the hairbase feature. Lamb’s shop is in SL16B’s Tinseled region. You’ll find this generous freebie waiting there.

Lastly, but far from least, I couldn’t complete my modern retro look without some shimmery lips. Alaskametro put out a pretty Omega applier “Bubblegum” lip gloss pallet as their free SL16B gift. It has 6 frosty pastel shades, and an additional feature that lets you pick from 3 different lip shapes for each color. I think that is a really cool option. This fabulous gift also has one more unique feature that I really like, there’s a button on the hud that will send you the classic system layers for this lip gloss set. Alaskametro is in the SL16B Halcyon region, which is where you’ll find this awesome makeup freebie.

Happy shopping Fab Free, here are the details:

Summer Alternative


Summer Alternative

Hello Fab Free! Don’t you just love a head-to-toe look, especially when it’s free? I know I do. That’s why I also love 7 Seas Fishing at Sn@tch. Most of Pru’s outfit is from the latest “Fish4This” outfit from Sn@tch. And, let’s not forget to mention how cute the soda pose is. It’s a current group gift available at Hazeel that has all the fun of a refreshing soda with none of the calories!

First thing first, this too cute 7 Seas Fishing at Sn@tch. This outfit is called “Hopeful World” and there are 21 total pieces to catch with your 7 Seas fishing rod. The full set consists of a striped mesh top in 6 colors, mesh jeans in 3 colors, earrings, wrist cuffs, a choker, an Omega applier tattoo, and Omega applier eyeshadow. If you’ve never been 7 Seas Fishing before, I’ll add a little blurb below about how to do so and how to get the required fishing rod.

Sizes Included (Top): Standard Mesh (xs-XL) + Alpha Layer, Tonic (Curvy, Fine), eBody, Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus)
Sizes Included (Jeans): Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus)

How to go 7Seas Fishing

If this is your first time fishing, I suggest getting a “casual” fishing rod. You can purchase a casual rod at the 7Seas fishing kiosk near the Sn@tch entrance. There are other rod options, but I only use a casual rod. The casual rod will cost you a one time purchase price of 100 linden. Once you have your rod you can use it forever to fish at any participating 7Seas Fishing area. Now you’re ready to go fish for this outfit!

Next up, I think this bento pose by Hazeel is just super cute. It’s one of a few currently available group gifts. The Hazeel group has a one time join fee of 99 linden. This soda pose includes the soda prop, the pose, and a transferable version of the soda. To get your copy and snag the other equally awesome group gifts just head over to Hazeel and click the group gift vendor for each gift while wearing your Hazeel group tag.

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.

Me : Do y’all ever look at the “people on line” counter on the splash page while you’re logging in? I do every now and then and it usually says around 40k avis are on the grid. That’s roughly ten times the number of people who lived in my entire town back when I was in high school. Ten Times!  That’s a TON of people all doing Second Life stuff…. all the time.

You: …. Okay. That’s nice, Juli…. um… your point?

Me: Oh, right.  My point is this… With that many people enjoying the Grid… Why am I always shocked to find a New-To-Me event? Cause I found one this week. I was all excited that I had found a brand new start up event… Then I saw that it’s been going on for a while now. So… I guess my point is…. was… The Point is a cool event with loads of free gifts and great designers!

Moving on….

When you join the Point’s group for free, you will be able to take your pick of a bunch of free gifts just for the group. Many of the vendors also have gifts set out; some for free and some for deep discounts. I picked “Loka” a cute casual shorts and racer-back crop top set from Anne’s fashions to show off today, just one of several full outfits on the gift wall. The Point event ends on June 25th so you have a few days to go get your shopping done!

Shorts Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, venus
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique

Top Sizes Included

  • Appliers for Belleza, Maitreya, Omega
  • Classic Mesh sizes – XXS-L

Adrift

My lovely, wistful new pose is also at an event but this time it’s the Liaison Collaborative. This is “The Shape of Summer” pose and it’s part of Le Poppycock’s new gacha: Shipwrecked. There are fifteen beautiful poses, each one with it’s own props like the gnarled drift wood here. Each play will cost you 69L so you can collect the entire set without too much damage to your wallet.

Let’s Spill Some Tea


Spill Some Tea

Hello again Fab Free’rs. Thanks as always for being here. I’m here to spill a little tea! okay maybe not “spill tea” exactly, but I am going to serve some tea in reference to how you can get this super sexy bikini and the teapot purse by Fika, along with the bright beautiful Pride tattoo by WitchCraft for next to nothing.

The purse and bikini are part of a group gift Pride package by Fika. I really couldn’t like this adorable bag more, and if it wasn’t cute enough on its own, it comes with 3 bento hold poses. The bikini is every bit as tiny as it looks, but I’m not at all sad about it. I do want to point out that the bikini bottom is very well defined. You’ll see what I mean when you pick it up for yourself and wear it the first time. It comes in several sizes, there is a heart graphic on the front of the bikini bottom that says “Love is Love.” Also, there’s a cute heart shaped cut out in the back. Lastly this Pride Package at Fika also includes a set of bento Pride inspired nails which are not shown. To get your copy of this generous Pride gift you’ll need to join the Fika in-world group which has a one time join fee of 30 linden. Don’t forget to pick up the one or two other group gifts available while you there!

Bikini Sizes Included: Slink Hourglass, Belleza (Freya, Isis), eBody Curvy

Manicure Sizes Included: Slink (M,F), Belleza

Next up, the rainbow barcode Pride tattoo is a dollarbie Omega applier tattoo by WitchCraft available to everyone. This tattoo is meant to be unisex so for just 1 linden anyone with an Omega applier compatible body can wear this colorful tattoo and show their Pride. You’ll find it waiting to be picked up at the WitchCraft shop on the wall with the new releases.

Here are the details:

Gelato Day


Gelato Party

Ciao Fab Free’rs, and welcome to (as Love put it) Gelato Day at Fab Free! I know we look like we are about to seriously chow down on some delicious gelato. There is a very good reason for that, the gelato display and holdables with bento animated poses are all part of a free group gift available at Andika. That, and we both really like gelato! In addition to the frozen goodness, Love and Pru both happen to be wearing Surf into Summer Hunt prize bikinis. Love’s can be found at Grumble, while Pru’s is at KaraBaby, which you may recall from Juli’s fabulous post here. Keep reading for the lowdown on all the yummy gelato and the swimwear.

The Gelato – I love Second Life food, it looks delicious, and all has zero calories! This beautiful gelato display is a current free group gift at Andika. There are 2 gifts, one is the display platter with extras to set out and the dispensers so your party guests can pick up their own gelato. The dispensers will give a his or a hers version of the gelato, and a matching his or hers spoon. The only differences between the his and hers is the size, and they each have a slightly different hold pose. The spoon is also animated with a bento hold so you appear to be eating the gelato. The second gift is a set of “take away” his and hers gelato with a bento hold pose. To get these two gifts you’ll need to join the free-to-join Andika group and click the gift vendors while wearing your Andika group tag.

The Grumble Bikini – The gorgeous bikini Love has on is the Surf into Summer Hunt gift at Grumble. Don’t you just love those pretty pastel colors? The hunt runs from now through June 21st. It comes in several sizes and is just 2 linden.

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

HintTo Infinity and Beyond!

The KaraBaby Bikini – Also a 2 linden prize from the Surf into Summer Hunt, you can find the Omega applier bikini Pru has on at KaraBaby. You can get a full view of this lovely bikini and the matching skirt in Juli’s recent post here.  The purple floral bikini has a matching mesh sarong/skirt that comes fitted for several mesh bodies.

Sizes Included: Bikini is an Omega Applier Only, Sarong sizes: Maitreya Lara, TMP, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Standard Mesh (xxs – L)

HintWe all need a snack after a long day at the beach.
