Hey FabFree!

The hunt for a new blogger has concluded, and we are happy to add Ms. Viol Rechter to our team!  Viol is an avid freebie hunter, and is excited to give back to the community through blogging.  After a departure from Second Life, she returned (as many have!) and found that avatars have come a long way!  She credits FabFree and the FabFree community with getting her avatar in tip-top shape.

We’re so excited to have you as part of the team, Viol!

FabFree Picks Contest Results!

Oh, my dear FabFree Fam!  What an awesome bunch of people you are!  Many readers took part in our picks contest, and I have to say that we bloggers were all so touched by the kind words all the participants put in their profiles.  It means a lot to us all that you hold us in  your hearts.  I’ve always said that FabFree is a special kind of community.  We don’t just share freebies and under 75L finds, we share friendship, we share laughs, and we help each other out.  Thank you to you ALL for being a part of this wonderful place, it wouldn’t exist without the support and kindness of our readers.

________________________________________

The winner of this round of the Picks Contest is….

Kate Rambo!

Kate had this to say (which made the bloggers tear up a bit, not gonna lie…)

“I can go to the Fab Free chat and always find people to say hi to, and it means so much to me in more ways than just the best deals! I feel like we can all relate and if someone needs help we help them and they help me! It is a wonderful group in more ways than one!”

Thank you Kate for being a part of FabFree, and thank you to everyone who took the time to participate.

Keep your eyes peeled for the next picks contest, which will be coming soon!

Fab Free Designer Friday 2.0 – BYRNE

What do you get when you combine equal parts Fashion, Art, and Imagination? BYRNE. For this edition of Fab Free Designer Friday 2.0 I am so excited to share with you one of the most unique and creative clothing boutiques on the grid, BYRNE. This shop is not only a clothing boutique with high fashion mens and womens clothing, but an art installation all in one. It is definitely a shopping experience you need to try for yourself, a photo could never do it justice. All the textures for the clothing at BYRNE are the artwork of the designer herself. This makes every item unlike anything else you’ll find in Second Life. At BYRNE you’ll find male, female, and unisex mesh and applier clothing, as well as makeup, and accessories. If you’ve never been before, I definitely suggest you check it out!

Fab Free Designer Friday 2.0 – 7 Deadly s[K]ins

It’s been a minute since we had a Designer Friday feature post on the blog, so even though it’s late in the day we are getting it done this week! For this post it’s all about skins, 7 Deadly s[K]ins to be exact. 7 Deadly s[K]ins has been an almost constant participant in the Fab Free community, which we of course love. So I am happy to be telling you all about this awesome shop. There are two floors of shopping at the 7 Deadly s[K]ins main store. New releases, gifts, and newer female skins are all on the first floor. The second floor is where you’ll find the male skins, discount skins, and some of the previous group gifts available for sale.

Along with their male and female skins there are lots of extras you can get to further customize your look. There are things such as freckles, makeup, body moles, cleavage options, and more that you can purchase at 7 Deadly s[K]ins. There’s also large number of skin-tones, most of which fall into a light to medium tone range. There are also lots of applier choices, and many of the skins are BOM. Additionally you can purchase shapes at 7 Deadly s[K]ins that are made specifically to suit their skins.

7 Deadly s[K]ins Store Group 

7 Deadly s[K]ins known for frequent and generous gifts for both male and female avatars. The group has a join fee of 295 linden. With the group tag you get exclusive sales, discounts, and gifts. Also, there are Mini Mania boards, camping chairs, and Lucky Letter boards that require the group tag to participate. Each month 7 Deadly s[K]ins offers a free male and female group gift skin. Currently there are also 2 7 Deadly s[K]ins Anniversary gifts with a full set of free skins in the boxes. You’ll find those gifts inside the entrance on the wall between the two doors. Current male and female group gifts are located behind the information desk.

The group only prize boards and camping chairs at 7 Deadly s[K]ins are mostly on the first floor. There are 3 total camping chairs (2 on the first floor, and 1 on the second) that offer gifts. The group only Mini Mania boards are on the first floor. There are 6 total boards with 5 female gifts, and 1 male. You’ll find Lucky Letter boards on both floors. There are 7 total boards, 2 of which have male prizes, and 5 of them have female prizes.  I also spotted a Lottery Board on the second floor that appeared to contain a 300 linden 7 Deadly s[K]ins gift card.

7 Deadly s[K]ins Fab Free Group Gift

The Fabulously Free in SL group gift at 7 Deadly s[K]ins is a pretty female skin called Mareike. She comes in 7 tones with Omega head/body appliers, and BOM layers. The Fabulously Free in SL group is required, however it is (and always will be) free to join. You’ll find this free gift waiting near the Midnight Madness boards on the first floor at 7 Deadly s[K]ins.

 

Other Gifts and Sales

7 Deadly s[K]ins is participating in the Saturday Sale with a female skin priced at just 70 linden per tone. There was another sales board, however there was not a current offer. Perhaps that’ll be a future offer. Toward the back of the store on the right side there are 2 Midnight Mania boards that are open to everyone, no group required. This area is also where you’ll find several gifts for other groups.

Sitting on shelves on the wall there are vendors with group logos. Each group has their own gift, which you can get by wearing the group tag for that group and clicking the vendor box with the corresponding group logo. I counted 9 total gifts including the gift for Fabulously Free in SL group members. There’s also a free Stay at Home Club gift on the first floor that includes the full Akyla skin with Omega head/body appliers, BOM layers, brow shaper, and a shape intended for Genus heads.

Losing My Zed

LOSING MY ZED- Prudence Rexroth

Down the hatch in one quick swallow! Hi Fab Free’rs! Welcome back to the blog. I’m sure you’re curious as to why I am about to swallow this cute pink letter z. It’s all because of Kiddo Oh, the owner/creator of Dead Doll formerly Dead Dollz. You may have heard that in June the iconic brand Dead Dollz was rebranded and became Dead Doll. In celebration there is a super cute freebie that is intended to be worn for the Dead Doll photo contest.

What’s the contest? It is intended to be a photo depiction of how “Dead Dollz” might have lost their “z” and became Dead Doll. There are some really incredible prizes for this contest and it is free to enter. First prize is 10,000 linden, and 5,000 in store credit to spend at Dead Doll! There is no group requirement to pick up the free contest merchandise at the Dead Doll store. You’ll find it sitting on the counter near the contest information sign. The deadline is July 15th, so hurry if you want to enter, and don’t forget to check the notecard included in the package for all contest rules and information.

The free Dead Doll photo contest merchandise package comes with a knotted logo tee, a coffee to go with bento hold pose (not pictured), and a re-sizeable letter z. Good Luck, and enjoy the freebies!
