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


Dark Grace

In time with Astrid’s 25L Tuesday post for today [HERE], I have news about another 25L Tuesday find that you might like!  Just in time for Halloween priced at just 25L today, Belle Epoque has this blood stained version of her very pretty fitmesh Grace Dress which she has affectionately named Dark Grace.

To complete my bloody look today, I have added the Punk’d makeup applier that has added bruised eyes, a busted lip and a bit of blood to the nose.  Not too blood drippy, just a little bit of beat up from a long night of dark mischief!  This is a free group gift at The Horror that is compatible with the system face in the form of a tattoo layer and also Omega for Omega compatible mesh heads… like my Catwa Candy Head.

The best cure

The best cure

The best cure for the Weekday Blues, in my opinion, is free gifts. Hello, dear readers and welcome to another edition of Edi’s Costume Ideas where I bring to you some hopefully helpful free or under 75L finds for your upcoming Halloween festivities. This episode, so to speak, is rather special as not only is it coming to you during the weekend, but also features an item from one of our Fabulous Designers! This sleek Nurse Betty outfit is brought to you by Brandy’s Boutique and you can get your copy for free just by joining the Fabulously Free in SL inworld group. How do I do that, you ask? Well, it’s easy! All you have to do is copy and paste the following link into local chat in your SL viewer: secondlife:///app/group/020fa7af-444d-f54f-01e2-557ec06315fd/about , hit enter and click on the link. Ta-da! Welcome to the group, now you’re ready to get your gift.

The Nurse Betty outfit consists of a chic, minimalistic body suit that comes in several different clothing layers for the classic avatar. I just love to mix and match as you know and really appreciate the additional layers (jacket, shirt, and tank layer for the top half of the outfit and pants and underwear layer for the bottom half) in case I want to wear anything additional on top of the outfit. There are several different appliers for mesh bodies included in the package as well such as the Belleza, Lena, Maitreya, Omega and Slink appliers. As an added bonus, the cute hat and stethoscope are included in the gift as well.

While there is a pair of red ballet straps contained in the Nurse Betty outfit that was a perfect fit for my Slink high feet, I’ve decided to show you another alternative. The beautiful coral pair of shoes pictured comes from Renegade Footwear and you can get them for free just by slapping the Midnight Mania board at the store. The board as a pretty low target number (25) and there is no group join needed to get in on the contest. In the package is not only shoes for Slink feet but for Belleza, Eve, Maitreya and TMP feet as well. The prize also contains a footbase and hud so that you can fiddle around with the color and look of your new shoes.

Cute accessories are another a weakness of mine and they don’t come any cuter than the aptly named Love Drug from Glutz. I had to resize the thigh straps a little so that it didn’t bite into the skin but lucky for me the Love Drug accessory is unrigged mesh and copayable so I was able to make some backups in case of mistakes. The gift comes with an extensive hud and you can spend hours experimenting and figuring out the perfect color combination. Best of all the Love Drug accessory is completely free. Just head on down to the Glutz main store to get the clue for the Quest Fur Cover Hunt that is running until the 31st of this month. Once you find the prize, buy for 0L.

Speaking of hunts did you know that there’s a really interesting one going on at 7 Deadly s{K}ins? I’m always looking for new hunt experiences and enjoy mulling over the clues so the Witch Hunt going on now at 7 Deadly s{K}ins was truly a fun experience. You’ll need to buy a hud for 1L at the front courtyard of the store and from there hunt for bones. Don’t worry the hud will help you keep track of which bones you’ve found and there’s a grand prize to be had as well. The skin I’m wearing in the picture above is one of the hunt prizes and is called Zara and comes in the tone taupe with cleavage and no cleavage options for classic skin. There are also appliers for Slink, Tango, Wowmeh and Phatazz included. I simply love the light dusting of freckles all over the skin’s face and body. The little details are always so spiffy aren’t they? The hunt at 7 Deadly s{K}ins lasts till the end of the month and there are prizes for guys as well so grab a friend and head on down.

Enticing Polka Dots Paired with Spooktacular Shoes


Spooktacular Polka Dots

Greetings, Fabulous Readers!  I hope you are having a relaxing weekend.  After recovering from his traumatic experience at the V.E.T. last week, Ripley quickly bounced back and soon headed off, nose to the ground.  With nary a step off target, he led me directly to Entice and didn’t stop until he sat in front of the Midnight Mania board.  After looking up at the polka dot dress, then back at me, Ripley whined, then tapped the board with his paw.  I bet you know by now, I’ve learned it’s best to follow my pup where ever he takes me.  Sure enough, Rip’s intuition was right on the money.  When I logged in to SL the next day, I saw the inventory offer from Entice and set straight to opening the box and pulling out the Side to Side dress.

With its bright, circular pops of color splashed across a black background, and a red belt to accentuate the waist, this cheery dress offers a fun addition to your SL wardrobe and won’t put even the slightest ding in your budget.  The Midnight Mania board does require you to join the Entice group, but it’s free to join, and there are a bunch of lucky boards and gifts just waiting for members to claim.  On our way out, Ripley befriended this adorable Corgie in a lobster outfit and I had to take a quick snapshot of the little guy.  Isn’t he cute?

Cute Corgie

In search of the perfect accessories, the pupster and I journeyed over to Cae, one of my favorite jewelry stores.  As we arrived, I noticed the glowing Gacha Guardian Rune Stone right away.  Cae has a free charm bracelet set out and you can try your luck on the Gacha board for a plethora of Trick or Treat charms for 75L a turn.  From an adorable pumpkin, a spooky ghost, a witch hat, a spider, and my favorite, the silver cat (well, my name is Kat :P), these charms all magically attach to the free bracelet with the included HUD.  You can opt to wear Cae’s bracelet as a simple chain, snap on a single charm, or add as many as you like.  Now, I have to admit, Gacha machines are my nemesis and Ripley’s eyes became a bit worried as I was determined to get…. that….cat….charm.  It didn’t take long, though, and I soon had a jingly charm bracelet to add a Halloween theme to my outfit.


All that was left was a cute pair of shoes.  Ripley and I had read Astrid’s post here about the Spooktacular Goth Hunt over at Swank Events, and decided to check it out.  After a short time of searching, we discovered the black rose containing the free prize from Ghostyss, which is this gorgeous pair of Carrie heels for slink high feet.  I particularly like the way these sweet black shoes have a thin cord that wraps around your ankles and ties in an adorable bow on the back.  There are numerous black roses scattered around the Swank Events show room, in designer’s booths and cleverly hidden all around, so look everywhere and you will discover LOTS of prizes, all set for sale at 0L.  The hunt runs until October 31st.

Now, Ripley must have some Blood Hound coursing through his veins, because after we finished at Spooktacular, he was off and running toward another hunt, with me scrambling to keep up with his racing paws.  This time, he led me to LaBoheme for the Halloween Hunt, which is a 1L hunt that runs through November 2nd.  All you have to do is locate the glowing jack o’lantern cleverly concealed in the store and soon you’ll have two sets of nail polish for Slink, Omega and Maitreya.  I’m wearing the “Dark Passion” polish (this shade is one of the ten colors in the HUD) for this outfit, but in the hunt prize, you also get a spooky Catacomb polish as well).

A trip to Black Basalt Beach was a perfect way to end the day.  Ripley and I explored the lovely grounds, had fun playing fetch and followed some shy deer across a log suspended over a gully.  There are so many sights to see at this beautiful sim.  If you have free time and love to visit SL locations, I encourage you to check it out.  Until next Sunday, happy shopping, my friends!

I’m Going Out Tonight

“You can stay in if you like, Lazypup… I’m going out!”

Hey there Fabulouses!  Poulet Koenkamp of Purplemoon Creations is spoiling her inworld group members again with another instore group hunt!  The Keep Calm & Give Me Candy Hunt 3 began on October 18th and runs until the end of the month.  There are 10 hidden mermaids in and round the sunken ship as well as Phillip to search for.  I was running short on time when I went down there to hunt and didn’t find them all yet, but I found a few, and totally plan to go back and find the rest!  If you aren’t a current member of the group, it’s just 50L to join and these hunt prizes are well worth that!

One of the prizes I picked up is the super sexy Alana Dress in a royal purple denim with gold stitching.  This dress comes in Maitreya, Belleza and Slink mesh body sizes as well as regular mesh sizing and fitmesh with the co-ordinating alpha layer for those that are on the system body.  Such a great prize, and I really must get back there soon for the other prizes, but first I wanted to tell you about these cute shoes before I do!

You can find these adorable  strapped 2016 Halloween edition shoes at Empire for just 1L.  These come with a texture change HUD that allows you to change plenty of little pieces on the shoes with a few different colours in time with the season, for example gold, orange, purple and green.  Even if bright colours aren’t your thing, you can make these all black – so they’ll be fantastic even after the bit day of bumps and jumps is over.  These are compatible with Maitreya, Slink, Belleza and TMP mesh feet.

Falling for Sweaters

Coming soon to FabFree

The days are getting shorter, and the air is getting cooler (allegedly, unless you live in a southern climate like me :P).  It’s my favorite time of the year, cute and cozy sweater weather!  I’m in love with this Halloween-y sweater dress group gift from S@BBiA (free to join).  To round out the outfit, I added pieces from Sn@tch’s 7 Seas Fishing outfit, Coven.  Shown here are the boots, leggings, earrings and choker necklace.  (If you would like to see the rest, check out Love’s Post!).  You will need a 7 Seas fishing pole to get these items.  They start at $100 L, and are worth the investment!

Bubbling With Excitement Over Fabulous Gifts

Hello Fabulous Readers!  Today it was time for Ripley’s annual visit to the V-E-T.  He was due for his rabies shot and a few other nasty pokes, so on the way home, it was time for some shopping therapy.  Aren’t I a lucky girl to have a pooch who loves bargain-hunting as much as I do?  After the promise of “Ripley-snacks,” my hound with a nose for fashion quickly tracked down two Fabulous Finds that we’re “bubbling” with excitement to share with you.  Ripley didn’t have to search far…these goodies include two gifts for Fab Free Group members.

To join the FabFree Group, (free to join), copy and paste the following link into local chat in your SL Viewer and click the group join link – secondlife:///app/group/020fa7af-444d-f54f-01e2-557ec06315fd/about .  There are so many wonderful gifts available to Fabulously Free members, and the list is growing every day!

Bubbling With Excitement

For our first Fabulous Find, I slipped on the free, sleek Karmyn dress from #Bubbles.  With two curve-hugging silky mauve sides connected by a creamy, lacy panel, what’s not to love about this dress?  Its soft colors are sure to flatter any avatar.  A quick jaunt over to the Free Dove yielded my accessories which are a free gift set from Chop Zuey.  The purpley-pink tone of the center gem stone surrounded by gleaming diamonds perfectly echoed the color scheme of my dress.  With an application of subtle matte lipstick from Birth, Nefertiti eyeliner from Euphoric and Star Bliss nail polish from Livia (only 10L on The Marketplace – score team Ripley!), I’m all glamm’d up and ready to go!

Somewhere Between Love and Friendship

Of course, after a morning at the animal hospital and bargain hunting, Ripley was ready for some well-deserved R and R at the lovely “A Painter’s Link” sim. He brown-bagged his Ripley-snacks and I brought along a picnic lunch to enjoy underneath a shady maple tree. For this outing, I needed a more casual outfit, so I combined Candys Capris from Cartiera Designs with two of our other finds of the day: the strappy, pink spiked shoes from Living Vintage Couture (another Free Fab Free Group Gift) and SG Apparel’s Rhapsody Gypsy top. The fun, unusual shoes left my fresh French manicure from By Snow (0L on The Marketplace) free to sparkle in the dappled sunshine. My pink crop top coordinated perfectly with my shoes, but if pink is not your color, the top comes with a color-change HUD with several other options. This top is a featured item in this week’s Fifty5 Thursdays sales line up. The sale runs through Sunday, but some designers keep up the sale items up for an entire week. All in all, these separates combined to create a fun, playful outfit for our afternoon leisure time.

Right now, Ripley is snoozing away his active morning, but I’m sure he’ll wake up soon raring to seek out some more Fabulous Finds to share with our wonderful readers. Until next time, happy shopping!

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.
