Simply Fabulous Free and Under L$75 Finds in Second Life – Since 2007


Electric Love

Electric Love Hello again Fab Free’rs, I’m happy to be here, thanks for coming by and checking out the blog today! I’ve got some exciting things to share with you. As I’m sure you’ve noticed by now, we have started involving Second Life’s wonderful designers again and part of that involvement has meant some generous Fab Free exclusive group gifts. One such gift is this two piece skirt and sweater outfit from Pretty Kitty Design. Though the outfit is cute enough on its own, I added the most recent gift from Nar Mattaru. I’m a sucker for cute Halloween stuff, and this fun Halloween themed face tattoo was just too cute to resist.

Starting with the outfit from Pretty Kitty Design, there’s so much to tell you about I’m almost not sure where to begin! The top and skirt come in standard mesh sizes, as well as fitted sizes for specific mesh bodies. Each piece can be worn separately or together for the complete look. Now here’s where it gets even more interesting. The outfit includes a unique color change system called ARCTIC Tech that is exclusive to Pretty Kitty Design. What is ARCTIC you ask? It’s a hud driven color change system. This system has the ability to continually cycle through a spectrum of colors at random or allow you to choose a specific color that will not shift until you change it. If you’re having trouble visualizing what I’ve described, I understand! You can see a working demo at the Pretty Kitty Design main store. It really is cool to watch as the colors in the clothing shift. The ARCTIC Tech color change system changes the “colored” parts of the outfit only, the black materials will remain black. This FREE Fab Free group gift from Pretty Kitty Design is available to all Fab Free group members, just wear your tag. If you’re not a member yet, don’t worry the Fab Free group is always FREE to join.

Next up, as I mentioned above, I found the group gift from Nar Mattaru too cute to resist! This gift is an applier for Catwa heads only. In the applier you’ll find several small under-eye tattoo options that include images such as this cute little bat under Pru’s eye. There are 8 total goth/Halloween themed images in the applier. To change the color of your tattoo, which is white when applied, you’ll need to use the main hud included with your Catwa head. Within the Catwa hud, you have the option of manually adjusting the cheek makeup color, this will let you change the color of your tattoo to anything you choose. The Nar Mattaru group has a one time join fee of 149 lindens. You’ll find this cute Halloween themed gift available along with a previous gift behind the counter at the Nar Mattaru main store.

I hope you enjoy these fun gifts! Here are the details.

Sugar Doll

Sugar Doll Hello hello Fab Free’rs! I’m not sure if I am excited or a little disappointed that the month is already half over and Halloween is a mere 2 weeks away. I genuinely enjoy this time of year, and I hate to see it fly by so quickly. That said, all the more reason to enjoy every minute that remains! Little Bones, Letis Tattoo, and Petite Mort have all set out gorgeous FREE group gifts recently. Without a shadow of doubt these gifts are among my favorite of the October gifts I’ve come across thus far. I’m sure you’ll enjoy them as much as I do.
Sugar Doll 2 Starting from top to bottom, this pretty strait hairstyle is the most recent group gift at Little Bones. The Dion hair at Little Bones is a full fatpack of hair colors, and has some unique features. This simple yet elegant style also includes a hud that allows you to change the way the hair lays. You can set the style to be over both shoulders, over one shoulder on either side, or behind both shoulders. Additionally the hud is scripted with additional animations that make your avatar appear to be touching or playing with his or her hair. It really is well done and a fun playful addition. The Little Bones group carries a one time join fee of 100 lindens.

Next up, the whimsical sugar skull style face-paint is a recent group gift from Letis Tattoo. This FREE group gift includes a classic system layer, an Omega applier, and a Catwa applier for the sugar skull face with 3 color options. Aside from the obvious artistry and imagination of the sugar skull face, I love the culture and legend behind the imagery.  Not to mention this sort of face can be worn with any sort of outfit and not betray the spirit of Dia De Los Muertos. To get this FREE gift, head over to Letis and join the FREE-to-join in world group and pick up your FREE gift.

My personal favorite part of this look saved for last, this beautiful dress is the October group gift at Petite Mort. There isn’t anything about this dark elegant dress that I don’t like. The skirt has a look of stars peeking through clouds in the night, and even the bodice has a faint delicate pattern. Once again I find myself using the word whimsical to describe the gifts in this post. The gift is FREE to all Petite Mort group members. The group has a one time join fee of 75 lindens. This dress alone is well worth the join fee in my opinion. The gift comes in standard mesh sizes, as well as a fit for Slink Physique, Slink Hourglass, and Maitreya Lara.

I genuinely hope you like this Sugar Doll look as much as I do.

The Wicked Witch of the South

The Wicked Witch of The South Hello There Fab Free’rs, thanks for coming by. It’s my favorite month of the year, and I decided to get a little witch-y with my style because why not?! When else can you get away with an over-sized witch hat as an accessory? In all honesty, the moment I put on this October subscriber group gift from BYRNE, I knew I wanted to wear a hat with it. I didn’t plan on a witch hat at first, but I’m quite pleased with the way things came together. Speaking of October group gifts, these adorable heels are the current group gift at Empire.  And of course I found an inexpensive lipstick by Stellar, that I couldn’t live without. I hope you like this spin on a classic witch look as much as I do!
Wicked Witch of The South Starting with the gift from BYRNE, my photos really do not do this mid-length dress justice. There are little details like the high neck, the full sleeves, and the buttons up the front that give the dress an elegant vintage feel. This group gift from BYRNE comes in the rust color shown and a blue color, both in several standard mesh sizes. Also included with this Fabulous FREE gift are a matching pair of goggles for each dress which are not shown in the photos. To add this lovely dress to your wardrobe, you’ll need to join the BYRNE Style group in world, and check the past notices. The group is FREE to join, and you’ll find a men’s gift as well!

I don’t think I could have picked a more darling pair of strapped heels to go with this dress. These lovely shoes are the October group gift at Empire. This gift is generous as always in that it includes shoes to fit Maitreya, Slink, TMP, and Belleza mesh feet. Also included is a color change hud that allows you to change each individual part of the shoes, from straps and buckles to sole. These shoes are FREE to all group members, simply join the Empire VIP group and wear your tag. The Empire VIP group has a one time join fee of 499 linden.

Finally, I cannot resist the final touch of a glittery nude lipstick from Stellar. This dollarbie applier gives a subtle shine and tint that is quite pretty and perfect for everyday wear. A fun Marketplace find by Stellar, the lip-color works with Lelutka mesh heads, Omega compatible heads, and includes a classic system layer for non-mesh avatars. Once again, I love the slight change makeup layers allow.

I genuinely hope you enjoy this look as much as I do! Here are the details.

Sinister to Sultry

Sinister to Sultry Sometimes all you need is a little makeup and a change in eye-color to change your look in a dramatic way. Using eyes by S0NG that I picked up at the Crossroads event, and makeup from the 50 Shades of Catwa Hunt happening at Indulge Temptation, I was able to take Pru’s look from slightly sinister to sultry. Pru’s wearing the same head, hair, and base skin in both photos.

In my opinion eyes from S0NG almost always have an otherworldly look to them. The Nyx eyes gacha by S0NG at the Crossroads event is no exception. These eyes have that signature glassy look S0NG is known for, and come in a huge variety of colors that range from natural to unnatural and everything in between. These sparkling eyes are available for just 55 lindens per play at the Crossroads event. Included with each pair of eyes is a mesh set of eyes, a matching alpha, and a system layer set.

The dramatic eye shadow and intensely colored lipsticks are just a few of the 50 total Catwa makeup appliers you can hunt down during the Indulge Temptation 50 Shades of Catwa Hunt. The item you’ll be hunting for is a little Catwa logo. Each hunt prize is 5 lindens and includes a single shade of lipstick or eye shadow. There are no groups to join, just head over to Indulge Temptation and enjoy the hunt!

Here are the details, Happy Hunting!

House of Ruby has out a new line of T-shirts for men and they are real heartbreakers in the making… you can get one in the color blue for the promo price of just 56L off the Marketplace. The shirt comes in system layers as well as Slink and Omega Appliers for mesh bodies.

I did some checking around and paired the colorful T-shirt with facepaint which I found as a past group gift at Zibska. In fact there is an entire wall out of past group gifts that include make up, jewelry, and more. The group is 200L to join, but it’s a one time fee, and after joining, you’ll be able to fill your inventory with lots of boxes to open. The Marsh face paint comes in a full fatpack of 7 colors and you’ll get system layers as well as and Omega applier for mesh heads.

I tossed on an oldie but goodie to finish off the look… Wicca’s Wardrobe is another group that leaves out their past group gifts for customers to enjoy. I’ve blogged these Ares pants before but it’s worth mentioning that for your 50L join fee at Wicca’s Wardrobe you’ll gain access to many past group gifts for both men and women… like these excellent quality pants.

Seeing Red

Seeing Red

If it’s been a while since you’ve stopped by Analog Dog to check out the FREE ball on the back beach, now is the time to do so, as there are some new FREE hairs in the ball just waiting for you to pick them up. In the picture above, I’m sporting a messy curly do called idyll, to which I added the jana bang set from the ball. The ball included both a hud for the dark blondes set as well as a hud for light reds… however since the hud includes a tinting option, you can get much darker brown and black shades on the hair as well.

Seeing Red 2

In the picture above I am showing you just one of two FREE hats that were also included in the FREE ball. This is the mill hat and is a perfect fit over the top of idyll once I removed the jana bang piece. I love the classy black hat. There was also a modern red print fedora as well!

Seeing Red 3

This classy style above is called samadhi, and is a lovely side-swept mesh style. Like idyll, it comes in dark blonde and light reds.

In the picture below I’m showing you the last addition to the FREE ball — scream cheese. It does just kind of make you want to scream “cheese” and take pictures. It’s one of those fabulous hairs that is casual and fun.

To find the free ball, fly up and back to the beach-y area of the Analog Dog hair sim and look for the semi-transparent bubble. Buy it for 0L and these great styles are yours.

Seeing Red 4

I’m not quite done yet though… I wanted to mention a few other tricks up my sleeve in my style today. Sometimes your skin needs a refresh. Make up is a great way to give a favorite skin a new feel, and testers are a nice way to get a new look without a lot of Lindens. I ran across this FREE tester by alaskametro called Orchid… it’s this pretty lip-stain that freshened up my avatar’s face. You won’t even have to teleport anywhere, just pick it up off the marketplace. It comes in a system applier as well as appliers for TMP, Eve, Lelutka, Loudmouth, NyamNyam, Omega, and Slink Visage.

To polish off my new look I added a ring from the Cart Wash Sale, because jewelry always adds a nice finishing touch. This classy cocktail ring from Luminesse is stylish and only 10L. If you stop by the cart you’ll find several beautiful pieces for men and women both to add to your inventory.

Wild Pink Butterfly

Butterflies Hello Fab Free’rs! For once I’ve had a fairly quiet day in RL and I’m glad. It’s about time! I hope you’re all doing well. Today I have a few group gifts, one from Hucci (technically a subscriber gift), and one from The Skinnery. Also, Indulge Temptation is celebrating 2 years with two ways score a beautiful celebratory gift.

The subscriber gift a Hucci is this lovely magenta colored mesh sleeveless top. The shirt comes in body-specific mesh sizes for Maitreya Lara, Slink Physique and Hourglass, as well as Belleza Isis, Freya, and Venus. As you can see this low cut “WildPink” is meant to be sexy yet casual, I think it could also be worn over an applier top if you wanted a little more coverage. To get this FREE subscriber gift at Hucci simply join the Subscriber, if the gift isn’t sent to you, use the message history to have the gift delivered.
Butterfly To go with the top from Hucci, I also picked up this pretty raspberry colored lip stain from The Skinnery. This Catwa lip applier is a FREE group gift at The Skinnery. It comes in a set of 4 stains. Each color has a normal version and smudgy version that makes it look as though you’ve messed up your lip-color with a little kissing! The Skinnery group has a one time join fee of 200 lindens. Once you’ve got your group tag, simply click the gift vendor and your lip stain set will be delivered. There are also several past group gifts still available.

The bold beautiful butterfly jewelry shown in the photos is a fun hunt prize or group gift from Indulge Temptation. This specific set along with several color change huds are the way Indulge Temptation is celebrating their 2 year Anniversary! There are 2 ways you can get this gorgeous set of statement jewelry. If you don’t want to join the in world group, you can hunt each piece at the main store. Each hidden part of the set is 10 lindens and there are 12 total pieces, most of which are the color change huds that allow you to adjust the color of the jewels as well as the metal parts. You can also resize these pieces of jewelry for the best fit. Not up for a hunt? No problem. Indulge Temptation group members can pick the full set up for FREE as a group gift.  The in world group has a one time join fee of 100 lindens, and there are previous group gifts available as well. You’ll find this and the other gifts in a room to the left of the landing point.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

TGIFIt’s Fri-yay!!! Hello hello Fab Free’rs, I hope you’re enjoying this fine day, or are about to have a great weekend. As for me, I’m glad to be here sharing my Fabulous finds with you. For today I wanted to focus on hair and makeup. In my personal opinion one of the best things about Second Life is the ability to infinitely customize the look of your avatar. To say that my personal taste is eclectic would be an understatement, I love the freedom SL gives me to change my look entirely on a whim. That said, not all changes need to be dramatic. Sometimes something as simple as a new hairstyle, a new set of eyes, a bold eyeliner, or a different shade of lipstick can be all the change you need.

Speaking of hairstyles, I really like this FREE gift from Moda. I think the half up half down messy bun a great mix of casual and effortlessly chic. There’s no need to join a group or slap a board to get this FREEbie from Moda. The gift is FREE for everyone, and includes a chest-friendly fit. This is the only hair color included, however it’s FREE and really it’s quite pretty. To get this gift, head to the very back of the Moda store and click on the vendor. There are also several other non-group and group gifts waiting.
Double Take Okay, I know they are mildly distracting, but please do your best to ignore the odd little shadows that appeared in these photos! lol I wanted to give a side by side comparison of an already lovely skin with the addition of some various makeup appliers. Also, check out those eyes! The pretty mesh eyes are a FREE gift available to everyone at Dulce Secrets. I wouldn’t have guessed pink and silvery grey eyes would have been so pretty and passably natural looking. I am however, pleasantly surprised at how unique and pretty these eyes from Dulce Secrets look. You can get these pretty pink peepers for FREE by clicking the gift vendor next to the Midnight Mania board at Dulce Secrets, no group needed.

Next, the deep dark winged liner with the white added to the waterline that speaks to my soul is from Pink Acid. I was so excited when I came across it! I know, I’m a complete nerd and I don’t even care. I’m a sucker for beautifully done heavy winged eyeliner. I think my inability to create this look on myself in real life might make me covet it even more in Second Life! lol This Catwa applier by Pink Acid is available on the Marketplace for just 1 linden. You’ll also find a classic system layer in the package, so a mesh head isn’t a must.

Finally, the purple/mauve lipstick is another applier I picked up for FREE on the Marketplace from a shop called Shiny Stuffs. This FREE wearable demo is also an applier for Catwa heads only. Not only does an applier like this one give you the pop of color, but they often appear to change the shape of your lips, as you can see in the above photo. Ultimately, this fun FREE wearable demo by Shiny Stuffs is a beautiful color, and well worth the effort if you wear a Catwa head.

Here are the details, Enjoy!/

Your Friday Hunt Report

openhighwayhuntGood Morning Fabulous Fans! The end of summer isn’t far off, but there’s still time to participate in some super hunts.

Too tired to actually run around in Second Life? You might want to try the Marketplace Hunt. It takes place entirely on the Marketplace. You just have to look through each online store to find the item that’s only L$5. With 44 stops, that’s a lot of very reasonable shopping.

I love road trip movies, so I’m planning to go out on the Open Highway Hunt. It’s a tiny little hunt with only nine stops, so it should only take about an hour.

If those don’t get you excited, there are plenty of other hunts to choose from. Click the hunt names below until you find the one that’s just right for you.

You say you’re new to hunting? Need help learning the ropes?
Both FabFree and HUNT SL have pages full of tips to help you get going. I recommend them to novice and veteran hunters alike.

Your Friday Hunt Report

WS-Hunt-Logo-Aug-16There are some nifty sim and store hunts going on right now. The Botanica Butterfly Hunt just began a couple of days ago and it’s always fun to run around Botanica. I’m told that this hunt is also educational.

My partner and I have been working on the massive Around The Grid in 80 Days hunt. With 146 stores, it’s going to take us a few days to complete, but we have until the end of September, so we should make it.

Speaking of big hunts, you’ll want to get an early start on the Womenstuff Hunt. It has 150 stops, so bring some friends and bring some lunch, because this one is going to take you a while.

Not seeing the perfect hunt for you? Check out the big boodle of hunts that are coming in the next couple of months!
