As some of you may know, I am an opinionated sort of person. I have little issue expounding on most any subject, especially when I have strong feelings on such subject. That said, Julianna threated to lock me in a closet if I made my true feelings about most of the free offerings for the men of Second Life. So let me merely say, Thank You, Contraption. Thank you for going above and beyond for the men of L’Homme with this gift.

Not Just Another Ball Cap

This is the Jasper Waistcoat and shirt and it’s the completely free gift for the L’Homme reader’s Group. I am genuinely impressed with the style and the attention to details in this piece. The Jasper Waistcoat is offered in store in several other colors at a reasonable cost. And you may be inclined to indulge. Yet, Contraption has given us a superb piece, in a color we want. It’s a high quality gift and I for one am very happy with it.

The waistcoat will look best with high waisted pants, especially if you are going for a clean cut Steam or authentic Victorian look. Contraption has also included a cummerbund applier HUDs for Belleza, Miatreya, Omega and Signature.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza
  • Signature
  • SLink

A quick note – Contraption has included some Female sizes for the waistcoat. The breast sliders will not work for the more well endowed and the piece has not been actually configured for women.  This is part of the note from the designer – We’ve only included female sizes for those who would like to pull off a certain look for our own friends.

Fab Free Designer of the Week – 01/22/2019 – Sweet Willows

 

Hello hello Fab Free’rs! I have another Fabulous designer to share with you today. This time I have the joy of telling you all about Sweet Willows. Sweet Willows is a small but cute shop that caters to both child and adult female avatars. Most of the clothing is casual daywear and sleepwear. There is a small section of toddler and baby clothing, and even a small number of costumes for roleplay, costume parties, or cosplay. I also spotted some very cute adult footie pajamas! The above photo is the main desk. There you can click the little sign being held by the cute corgi to join the Sweet Willows store group. There are also 3 free gifts waiting next to the dancing Storm Trooper. No group tag is required.

To the left of the presents is where you can find the free gift by Sweet Willows for Fabulously Free in SL group members. The Fab Free group is free to join if you’re not already a member. Also, if you’re interested, you can look to the right of the desk and see the Sweet Willows store associated groups and events. Happy Shopping Fab Free!

Shall We Dance, M’Lady?

A Night at the Ball

Hello there, Fabulouses! It’s not often that I opt to role play in SL, but Ripley happened to catch wind of fantastic his/her free matchy-matchy 18th century outfits that Stan and I just had to check out. If you are a role player in SL, these might be just up your alley! Each gift package includes everything you need from head to toe – all for free with no group join required!

For the Lady…

From wig and hat down to slippered feet, the ladies’ gift from St. Petersburg in SL/Chateau D’Esprit is a complete 18th century outfit perfect for a formal ball. I chose to wear just the gown, gloves, skirt, sleeves, bow and Sacque (kind of like a cape in back), but the gift folder also includes a color change wig, wrap, cap, stockings and slippers. I just love the frilly trim and lace as well as the generous hoop style skirt. I felt so elegant while wearing it! The best part of all was it was completely free and I didn’t have to join any group to pick it up!
Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic clothing layers (gloves, shoe base, stockings, top, underpants, underskirt, alpha layer)
  • Applier for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink
  • Omega Advanced Applier HUD
  • Sacque
  • Skirt
  • Right and left sleeves
  • Wig with color change HUD and hairbase
  • Cap
  • Slippers

And For the Gentlemen…

Although he grumbled about wearing a wig, I thought Stan looked dashing in his suit, which is a free gift from St. Petersburg in SL/Chateau D’Esprit. The men’s gift doesn’t have as many separate components like the ladies’ version, but it looks just as spectacular, and includes everything needed for a fantasy evening. From the powdered wig down to the buckled shoes, Stan was all set to go. He really appreciated the fact that he could throw all the clothing on with just one click. There was no need to mess around with adding different layers or separate clothing items. He simply had to decide to go with either the standard or no lace version of the suit and then add his wig. No fuss, no muss and then he was pacing, waiting for me to finish getting ready. Isn’t that the way it always goes? 😉

What’s Included:

  • M Suit
  • M Suit (no lace)
  • Alpha layer
  • Wig

We’re off to enjoy an evening of waltzing and role play. Until next time, happy shopping!

The Valkyrie

 

The Valkyrie
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! I had so much fun with this look, and it’s almost entirely gachas and group gifts. Sometimes my favorite part of Second Life really is just playing dress-up. I think Pru looks like a fearsome angelic warrior or a Valkyrie from Norse mythology. For details about each of the freebies and cheapies that make up this look just keep reading!

The Wings – These steampunk inspired wings by Rezology can be found on the Marketplace for just 1 linden. They are modifiable so they can be resized, recolored, and even moved around so the gears and such show on the outside of the wings rather than the inside.

The Tattoo – This group gift tattoo by This is Wrong is unisex. It is a fully body tattoo of intricate geometric lines. It reminds me a lot of art deco style line work. The gift includes several appliers for both male and female mesh bodies, and there are 3 color options. The This is Wrong group is just 50 linden to join.
Appliers Included: Female – Belleza/Maitreya, TMP, Slink / Male – Signature Gianni, Belleza Jake, TMP, Slink

The Bodysuit – This gorgeous detailed bodysuit is from the Bath’kol gacha set at Sweet Thing. It is the Rare item in the set. It includes a color change hud with preset options for different sections of the bodysuit. The Bath’kol gacha is 75 linden per play and can be found at the Sweet Thing store.

Bath'kol by Sweet Thing.

The Pose – The Pose Fair is in full swing and there are tons of free gifts. Special thanks to one of our readers Azure for mentioning the virtual truckload of freebies at this event! This particular pose is the free Pose Fair gift by posEd. It comes in a pose stand as well as just the pose alone. To get your copy of this dynamic pose, head over to the Pose Fair, and be sure to join the free group before clicking the gift box at the posEd booth.

Cheeky Devil

Cheeky Devil

Happy Halloween Fab Free!  I just finished my marathon of a day of spookiness, and I’ve finally managed to sit back on the couch and take a breather.  Here’s a cute look that works as a very last minute costume, or something devilishly sweet to carry you through the next few days!

Love and Pitchforks

I’ll keep it simple tonight, seeing as I’m about to nod off into the land of exhaustion.  I put together a few super cute finds from all over the grid and beyond for this spicy look:

  • Top by Sorumin.  The group is free to join, and this cute top is sized for Maitreya.  You’ll find this gift located right by the landing point in the little hut!
  • Wings, Tail and Horns by Boild Egg, free at the Japan Canvas Sim, no group join required, just look for the little orange clapboard, it’s hidden somewhere around the sim!
  • Lipstick by Viena, 10L on Marketplace with appliers for Catwa, Lelutka and Omega, and loads of colours to choose from!

I’m going to go terrorize all the leftover candy!

Happy Halloween!

I Put A Spell On You

I Put A Spell On You

Shell out, shell out!  The witches are out!

The magical night is drawing near…have you found your costume yet?  If you want a full on classic witch look, then I’ve got you covered!

SaNaRae Yay!

If you TP over to SaNaRae and join their group for free, you can pick up a whole bunch of goodies this month.  I checked out the BMS booth and got this hat, hair and dress for free!  There isn’t a size specified, but with a bit of alpha work it fit my Maitreya body perfectly.  Over at the Kokoro Poses booth, I got this cute pose complete with lollipop.  There are bunch of other gifts there too, so go find some awesome at SaNaRae!

The Gory Side

The Gory Side

Right, well….this is a bit of a departure for me!  I don’t usually go in for the gory side of Halloween, but what can I say…. you gotta try things at least once.  I mean…I don’t know that being spattered with blood is one of the things you really need to try once, but I suppose in SL it’s all part of the experience!

Once Upon A Nightmare

Yessiree, the free Once Upon A Nightmare hunt is back, and loads of your favourite stores are taking part!  Juli showed you some of her findings HERE, and I’m showing off two creeptastic prizes today!  I journeyed over to Le Fil Cassé and found this itty bitty “strappy mess” outfit.  I’ve strategically placed my hair and this skull that just happened to be lying around to protect my modesty, but it really is allllll out there.  Something for a special and murderous occasion, I’d say!  I continued my meanderings and over at Vanilla Bae I sought out the little OUAN boxes and came across these quite sexy (and strippable) boots! They’re sized for Maitreya, Hourglass, Isis and Freya. It all works together in some strange and twisted way!  Both finds were completely FREE and fun to find!

Outfit Sizes

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass

And Now For Something Completely Different…

There’s another hunt taking place – this one is all on one sim and is called the Spooky Cute hunt!  I teleported over there and goggled about until I came across the little ghost (which I bought for 1L) containing this hair from Sintiklia!  The bangs are optional, and there are a few different colours to choose from in the HUD.  You’ll find all the details for this hunt at the landing point!

Now where did I put that towel?! SOMEONE has to clean up this mess!
