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

Leave a comment


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!/

Snapshot_005Hello FabFree! Yesterday I mentioned that Miss Chelsea had moved to a new location and had three new group gifts out for their inworld members. I showed you one of them [HERE], but I wanted to show off another one of them, because when I tried it on I really liked it!

The Emie dress comes with a texture change hud that allows for a handful of top colour choices to go with the red polka dotted skirt and is compatible with Maitreya, Slink and Belleza mesh bodies.  As I mentioned yesterday, the Miss Chelsea inworld group is 100L to join.

Tropical Daydream

Tropical All weekend it’s been raining in my real world. All weekend I’ve been dreaming of somewhere warm and tropical to have an adventure! Thankfully I have Second Life to help my daydreams seem more real. Recently I found out about a little shop called LaGeeny. Even better, I found out about their several group gifts and camping chairs! Also, redMint has an August group gift out, which I love, and a little something extra from NSP Florals.
Tropical 2 This FREE dress from LaGeeny just might be the perfect casual summer dress. It looks light and comfortable with great details. Thanks to a texture change hud with several pattern and solid color options this dress is ultra wearable and could go with just about any style. One of the solid colors is particularly pretty! I chose this playful red floral pattern because it is not only pretty, but it played into that tropical vacation I’ve been dreaming of! The dress is fully mesh and comes in several sizes. How do you get it? First you’ll need to join the LaGeeny in world group. The group is FREE to join. Then you’ll need to camp out in the group only camping chair for 45 minutes. I know 45 minutes sounds like a long time, but if you’ve got someone to chat with while you wait, the time goes by fast. Thankfully I had Love in my IMs keeping me company! There are also some non-group camping chairs and several group gifts available, so take a moment to stop by LaGeeny and take advantage.

Sterling Silver hair is all the rage right now, and I have to admit I am totally on board with this trend. I love the silvery blue tones I’ve been seeing. This long side-swept hairstyle is the most recent FREE group gift at redMint. I’ve always liked redMint hair because it has a unique style to it that you just don’t see anywhere else. The redMint group is FREE to join at this time and there are a few previous FREE group gifts also available. In the package with this lovely gift you’ll find a regular size version of the style, and a larger version for the busty ladies.

Sometimes just the right accessory makes an outfit. I think this is true with the gorgeously done hibiscus flower by NSP Florals. The flower can be resized via touch menu, and costs just 25 lindens on the Marketplace.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Mrs. B’s Designs closing sale :(

Hey FabFree.


I have some bad news for us today. Ms.B’s Designs will be closing it’s doors in world.  But, happily, it will remain on the Marketplace. All the clothing and poses are now 50% off which is a real bargain for the quality of the items you’ll find at Ms. B’s Design. I picked up the ‘Lovely Luna’ top I’m showing you for just 49L.  The past gifts are available for 10L and there are still several free ‘no group needed gifts set out as well. And there’s a wall of men’s outfits for the gentlemen too. Ms. B hasn’t said when she will complately close the store so if you want to drop in you need to hurry.

I hate to see Ms B’s Design close down, it’s always been a bright spot in my Second Life. But it sounds like Ms.B’s real life is taking off in a wonderful direction. We wish you all the best, Ms. B!

Tori-tastic Hello Fab Free’rs I’ve got several things to share with you today, so I’ll get right to it! I love this complete look, and I hope you do also. I had really hoped to get an “out and about” style photo of the complete look, but my computer/internet connection have other ideas! Ah well.

Starting with the romper Pru has on, I loved the pattern of the material and the bright colors. This low cut halter style romper is the Women’s Hunt prize you can find at Maci. The hint tells you to find Carmen to find the hidden dollarbie hunt prize. In the box you’ll find several mesh fits including classic mesh sizes, Belleza (Venus, Isis, Freya), Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Eve (Slim, Pulpy), Tonic (Curvy, Fine), and TMP. Not to mention I think this romper is great for showing off the white henna style tattoo from Letis that Pru is wearing!

Next, I am forever in love with the shoes from Empire! These thigh high strap-y creations are the August group gift for the Empire VIP group. The gift comes with a full “fat pack” color hud so you’ll have the ability to choose from any of the standard Empire shoe colors. Also, you can color individual parts of the shoes differently to match your outfit. The gift includes a Maitreya, Slink (Physique, Hourglass) , and Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus) foot and body fits. The Empire VIP group has a one time join fee of 499 lindens which may seem steep, but if you’re as crazy about shoes as I am, it’s beyond worth it. You’ll not only get access to these shoes FREE, you’ll be able to pick up several of the past group gifts as well.

As if this cute little outfit needed any more sass, I decided to add in this blue toned face piercing by Suicidal Unborn!. It’s like the cherry on the sundae! This septum/Marilyn combo is perfect for something subtle, and the blue color makes it a little more  unique than other similar piercings. You can find this piercing set for just 50 lindens on the Marketplace.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Flamingo Hello There Fab Free’rs! I know it’s been a minute since I put up a blog post, my apologies for that. Real Life has me on my toes these days. Hopefully I’ll find a bit of calm soon and be able to get back into a regular routine. I miss this! For today I have a few little things to share with you to create a cute everyday warm-weather look.

Starting with the eyes, or shall I say the eye makeup, Slack Girl has out a pretty set of eye makeup as a recent group gift. This pretty gift includes 3 variations of this pretty winged liner with a subtle shadow. The package has a Catwa/Omega applier for Catwa and Omega compatible heads, as well as classic system layers. The SlackGirl group has a one time join fee of 100 linden, however there is a full wall of FREE gifts including this one available to all group members. Don’t forget to wear that tag!

I really love it when designers make demos that are wearable. It really helps you see how an item is going to look, as well as allows you to test a product. The nails and rings Pru has on are a wearable demo from Angel Rock. The rings and nails are all part of the same single attachment, meant to fit Maitreya Lara hands. I found this pretty FREE wearable demo on the Marketplace. The rings are well detailed, and I genuinely like the colors. In the package you’ll find right and left hand attachments to fit several hand sizes, however you must be wearing Maitreya Lara mesh hands as well. You’ll also find a HUD in the package, however it is for demo purposes only. It will allow you to see the possible options of the full product, but it will not make any changes to your rings or nails.

Lastly, how cute is this top from AtiK?! I love the soft overlay floral pattern combined with pretty pink flamingos. This mesh top looks so cute on, and like it would be comfortable on even the most hot humid days. AtiK‘s in-world group is FREE to join, making this lovely group gift FREE as well. In the package you’ll get the mesh top in standard mesh sizes, as well as a matching alpha layer. There is an entire wall of group gifts at the AtiK location, just join the group and pick them up while wearing your group tag.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Ain’t Nobody Gonna Steal My Honey!

Snapshot_004It’s a good thing Gizza put out this sneaky peeky camoflauge hunting set out as a free group gift because I had a little investigating to do this evening.  Someone’s been sneaking my honey for weeks!  Of course when I got there and began my investigation, it was clear instantly that there was nothing but Booger Bear fluff and tiny paw prints.  I knew it had to be those rascally little fuzzbutts…  Now to figure out who they belong to….  CALLLEEEEE

You can pick this this one piece (shorts/shirt/jacket) full “Hunter” outfit by Gizza as a free group gift after you have activated your free Gizza inworld group tag.  It comes in XXS-L mesh sizes as well as Slink and Maitreya mesh body specific sizes.  There is also a matching men’s outfit available as a free gift if you feel you need to call for back up on your hunting expedition.

As previously mentioned on FabFree, Gizza has an expansive group gift area at the landing point filled with goodies for girls and guys.  If you happen to know any new residents or come in contact with any, this is a good place for them to visit!  These are high quality, well made items and 100% free :)

Here are a couple more examples of gifts available at Gizza:

Good evening, Fabfree, ( or is it morning…)


Ethan will happily tell you that I do not function in the morning without coffee. A morning… even one at a lovely beachside cottage without coffee? Unthinkable.  At least I found this comfortable new shirt at Cold Ash for free. This is the ‘Logan’ shirt in plaid and it’s the free gift for L’Homme Magazine readers. This shirt comes in the standard mesh sizes S-L and in a Fitmesh version also S-L. The alpha layer is well made and the shirt itself is so well made you may not even need it.

L’Homme readers will find numerous gifts for this August issue. The group is free to join, simply click the L’Homme sign at any participating shop.

I remain most sincerely yours,
Gabe's Signiture

Get !gO!ne

Get gO!ne When the heat gets to be more than I can handle, dipping your feet in some cool clear water is a favorite way to cool down and cool off. It also helps to wear loose-fitting comfortable clothing like this orange and white gingham dress from gO!. This fully mesh dress is the latest group gift at gO!, and as always the details and textures are beautiful. This FREE group gift comes in a fitted mesh size, a Maitreya Lara size, a Slink Hourglass size, and a Slink Physique size. Also included in the gift box is a matching alpha layer. To get this cute dress, head over to gO! and join the VIP group, then click the gift vendor while wearing your group tag. The gO! VIP group has a one time join fee of 50 lindens.
Kokolores DigbyAlso, I picked up this Catwa lash applier by Kokolores on the Marketplace for FREE. I feel like I have neglected to try lash appliers with the mesh heads, and I’ve been meaning to. These lashes by Kokolores are, I think, nice and full looking which goes along with the name “Mascara Lashes”. They do have the appearance of wearing mascara in a way. The applier works for Catwa heads only, and will change the upper and lower lashes with just a click. So if you’re looking for something slightly more dramatic than what comes with your Catwa head, these are an excellent FREE option.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Skater Girl

*yawn* Good Morning, FabFree.

skater Girl_001

It’s way too early here for me but I couldn’t wait any longer to show off this fun free look from a ‘new to me’ designer.  This great bolero type jacket and barely there tank top are from Cranked and they are the free group gifts currently available. The Soja Jacket comes in the standard Mesh sizes XXS-L as well as in appliers for SLink Physique and Hourglass. Plus you get a HUD to change to one of six colors of denim.

The shorty ‘Female Fotball Crop Top’ is also out as a free gift. The top comes with it’s own HUD for a choice of eighteen colors/patterns. You’ll get the standard Mesh sizes XS-XL, FitMesh XS-XL  as well as appliers for Maitreya, SLInk and Belleza. That’s a bunch of choices!

Last but not least are my super nifty skates from Skate World. These are the ‘Roller Skates ATG’ and they are the 1L prize for the Around the Grid in 80 Days Hunt. The skates come with a ‘skating’ AO that works very nicely. You can resize the skates via a script but I found I need to really mess with mine to get them right. A little frustrating but worth the effort. Plus you have until September 30 to hunt down all the great prizes. Oh, one quick note before I go… The pose I’m using in my picture is not part of the AO in the skates. That is ‘Derby 2’ from Embody on the marketplace. ( which is down at the moment. I will update when I can)
