Skin Me

LAQ Valentine
Good morning FabFree Readers! Just a quick little shot from me today to share news about a beautiful new group gift from LAQ!

Give Me Some Skin!

Back in December, I posted that I had picked up the LAQ Neve Bento Motion Capture Head while it was on promo and I do on occasion wear it inworld and am glad I made the purchase because after some shape tweaking I was able to make her “feel like me”.  Yesterday for Valentine’s Day, LAQ announced that they had placed out a new free group gift for it’s inworld VIPS (FREE TO JOIN!), and that gift is the Valentine Skin head appliers, specifically for LAQ Bento Motion Capture Heads.

LAQ Valentine Skin Details:

This skin is lightly freckled with rosy cheeks and glossed lips making it a fantastic, wear every day base skin that would even be suitable for makeup layering!  The HUD included allows for several different skin tones as well as a browless option so that you can add your own.  Matching body appliers are not included with this gift, however they are currently on sale at very low prices (between 15-25L for ALL the skin tones) for several different body styles.

This gift is a limited time offer, available in store until February 18th.

ps.  I don’t have Scarlet, but I bet this skin looks great on her too!

Hot Elegant Malvada Mujer

Wait Just a Minute
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! I hope this post finds you well. I have had so much going on, I am not even sure what day it is. One thing I am sure of however, is that I am loving this look made of group gifts and cheapies from Hot Elegant Clothing and La Malvada Mujer. There is something empowering about putting together such a daring look. Second Life lets me experiment with fashion in ways that I might not otherwise. I hope you have as much fun with these items as I did!

Hot Elegant Clothing aka HEC

This revealing outfit is the most recent group gift at HEC. This tiny bandeau style top paired with short shorts are ultra sexy on. Each piece can also be worn separately. This FREE group gift outfit from HEC comes in several mesh sizes and has a customization hud that lets you choose from a few color presets for the belt. There is also a few customization options for the top such as transparency, and the option to hide or show the belt. To get your copy simply join the Hot Elegant Clothing group for a one time fee of just 25 linden, then click the group gift vendor.

Mesh Sizes Included: Standard Mesh ( xxs – L ) w/Alpha Layer, TMP, Maitreya Lara, Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Belleza (Isis, Venus, Freya)

La Malvada Mujer

I don’t mind telling you that I am living for this eye makeup look from La Malvada Mujer. It’s one of several equally edgy and stunning color options in a recent group gift applier set. Called the Nefelina Eyeshadow, I picked up this FREE group gift by first joining the La Malvada Mujer group, it’s FREE to join, and checking the notices. You’ll see this FREE group gift went out on January 3rd, so it should be available for a few more days at least. Finally, this army green-ish lip color is an inexpensive find at the La Malvada Mujer location. I picked up the Underwood Lips for just 10 linden while browsing through the shop. There are 8 total lip colors including this dark green shade Pru is rocking. If the green isn’t something you’d enjoy, there is bound to be at least one you’ll love. Both the eye shadow and lipstick are appliers only.

Makeup Appliers Included: Omega, Genesis

She’s got the look!

Rawr_001

“Heavenly bound
Cause heaven’s got a number
When she’s spinning me around
Kissing is a color
Her loving is a wild dog
She’s got the look”

Get the look too!

You can get the look for free! I have some special gifts to list off to you starting with some sweet deals at 7 Deadly s{K}ins. Right now the group join fee is free (I’m not sure how much longer this promotion will last, so hurry!). For the month of January, your group gift is 400L in-store credit! Just go to the credit terminal with your group tag on and click it to get your credit to go towards any purchase!

Don’t forget that 7 Deadly s{K}ins has a nice assortment of lucky letter boards, mini mania boards, and midnight mania boards accessible to group members. While I was there picking up my free 400L store credit, my letter came up on one of the lucky boards, and I got the Vyra skin for free! It includes the face and body Omega appliers in a full fatpack of skintones! I was thrilled with this free beautiful skin pictured above.

More free stuff…

Byrne has out their free goodies for January as well and RAWR are they gorgeous! I picked up the Jungle Queen dress in the group notices (or you can pick it up at the main-store) and the subscriber sent me the matching gloves. The dress and gloves both come in fits for Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza to fit your mesh body needs.

Chocolate Lola
Happy New Year Fab Free! I hope you’re all looking forward to a brand new year, I know I am. It feels good to be excited for the future. For my first post of 2018 of course I found pretty lacy things! I also wanted to share with you another of the still available group gifts at Pumec. I showed the Pumec December group gift in my last post “Pumec Cherry” and was inspired to show more. First, the floral bra and panties set by Chocolate Atelier!

Chocolate Atelier at Japonica

While waiting to cheer in the New Year, I came across a new-to-me event called Japonica. As the name would suggest the entire event is Asian themed. I came across a small number of gifts while exploring the event, and this bra and panties set from Chocolate Atelier was one of those “I must have that” moments. The set is completely FREE, just click the vendor and buy the gift for $0 linden. This FREE gift at Japonica includes appliers and classic system layers in 2 color variations. I added a copy of the vendor ad by Chocolate Atelier so you can get a good look at this fabulous FREE gift.

Appliers Included: Slink, Omega, Maitreya, Belleza, TMP

Pumec

As I mentioned above, this lovely face is a past group gift at Pumec that is still currently available. I showed the current group gift in my last post “Pumec Cherry.”  This FREE group gift was the November gift at Pumec, her name is Lola, and I love her! Lola comes in a complete fat pack with body applier huds for each skin tone, a head applier for each tone, classic system layer skins, and a matching shape.  Currently the Pumec group is 299 linden to join, and there are several gifts available.

Body Appliers Included: Maitreya, Belleza, Slink, Omega  Head Applier Included: Catwa Only

A Fresh, FREE Face For 2018!

TruthDeetaleZPMLB
HAPPY 2018!

Hello there Fabulouses! Before I start rambling on about the free goodies in my post today, I just wanted to wish all of our very Fabulous readers a happy new year filled with health, love and success!  I know some of you have shared that you had a rough 2017, and I hope that today marks the first day of a fresh chapter in your book!

Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow. – Albert Einstein

Facing The Year Ahead…

(Updated… Sorry everyone – these gifts have been removed)

The first day of the new year seems like a great day to try out a fresh look, and why not this one?  If you are a Catwa mesh head wearer like I am, head on over to Deetalez and join their free inworld group to gain access to the very generous free gift under the Christmas Tree at the landing point that includes two face appliers in Taylor 2.  I am wearing just one of them today in the mixed skin tone.  It features smoky shadowed eyes and golden matte lips with a touch of gold shimmer on the cheeks.   I’m sure one of us will be wearing the other gift soon as it’s just as adorable, but in a lighter angelic skin tone with frosty lips and pale blue eye shadow.  These may be Christmas gifts, but they will be great for any day of the year.

Pumec Cherry

Pumec Cherry
Here I go, here I go, here I go again. Fab Free’rs, what’s my weakness? Skin. Really though, I do love a well-made inexpensive skin. So for this Sunday Funday post I am excited to share with you not only this super cute group gift skin from Pumec, but the just as cute group gift sweater from Cubic Cherry also. I hope you love these awesome group gifts!

Pumec

Like many of us in Second Life, I’m on a very tight linden budget. It’s how I found Fabulously Free in SL many years ago. It’s why I blog what I find, so I can help others like me who want to look fantastic in Second Life and not spend a fantastic amount of linden. That said I finally decided I just had to join the Pumec in-world group. It has a moderate join fee of 299 linden, however the fee more than pays for itself with this December group gift alone.  Also, there are past group gifts still available. This pretty Pumec skin is named Kendra and she comes in a full fatpack. In this gift you’ll get all-in-one body applier huds for each skin tone, a Catwa head applier that works for each skin tone, a set of classic system skins, and a shape.

Body Appliers Included: Maitreya, Belleza, Slink, Omega     Head Applier Included: Catwa Only

Cubic Cherry

I love the look of this sweater from Cubic Cherry. It’s one of those items that looks as good on as it does in the ad. This cute billowy sweater is a new group gift. The Cubic Cherry group does have a one time join fee of 66 linden, however there are many group gifts available. All you need to do to get your copy of this “Princess” sweater is head over to Cubic Cherry, join the group, and click the gift vendor.

Mesh Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Don’t Even Say It

Spirit

Don’t even say it… Don’t even try to tell me “It’s cold outside!“, because it’s minus a billion trillion here (was actually -35c this morning when I got up to shovel… again) and your -15c is sounding fantastic to me…  even tropical!  So I stand here on my front step and “shooooosh” you.

You can’t say it, but you can wear it!

This cute aqua sweater with “Baby it’s cold outside” across the front of it is a free group gift for joining the Paying It Forward group at the Paying It Forward event that runs until the end of the month (updated…  sorry folks!  It ended on 12/25)!  The group is free, and as mentioned previously on FabFree – there are gifts by nearly every designer participating.

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya & Isis

A Change Of Face

You might have noticed I’m looking a little different in my post today and that’s because I have tweaked my shape a smidge so that I could show off a gorgeous new Catwa face applier by Spirit Skins that is available as a free group gift!  You’ll find the Santa Skin under the Christmas Tree at Spirit just at the landing point.  It comes with the Sand skin tone that I am wearing as well as a darker Nut skin tone and a shape that you can adjust to your liking.  This group is normally 100L to join, but today when I checked it was free.  I can’t promise it will be free by the time this is posted or the next day, so act quickly!  There are actually two other clothing gifts there by Spirit and Kitja to snag, so make sure you grab those too!

The Winter Fae

Starry Winter Fae_001

“Hello darkness, my old friend
I’ve come to talk with you again
Because a vision softly creeping
Left its seeds while I was sleeping…” ~ from Sounds of Silence

This winter fae skin makes me think of dark winter nights despite her white features, blue lips, and the white tears that come from white shadowed eyes. She is a beauty bathed in light, tormented by the dark nights of winter.

And she’s all yours for…

free. As part of the Women Only Hunt, provided by Avada, you can have the beautiful Winter Fae Skin for yourself free. Included in this beautiful gift are multiple head and body appliers.

Winter Fae Head Appliers:

  • Catwa
  • Omega

Winter Fae Body Appliers:

  • Maitreya
  • Omega
  • Belleza
  • Physique

More winter hunting…

I was with my hunting partner again, and he led me to Juno Artistic Tattoo, and we both agreed that the free POE hunt gift there was perfect for this skin. Go figure… I’m wearing ink in another post! But this beautiful snowflake, stars, and blue twinkle light studded tattoo is a perfect winter compliment to the Winter Fae skin and adds just a touch of color to the otherwise white canvas of this lush skin.

With Just a Little Bit of Pixie Dust

A Little Bit of Pixie Dust

Hello Fabulouses!  Ripley and I finished unpacking our prizes from the Pixies of Snow Hunt (you can read more about our adventure {HERE}), and discovered this exotic Neva skin from Stargazer Creations.  With cool blue and lavender tones swirled across a lighter blue base, this fantasy-themed skin would be ideal for role play.  I really was impressed by the quality of this free skin, and although it’s not my typical SL look, I really wanted to feature it in a blog post.  The prize box includes a skin layer for classic avatars and an Omega Advanced Applier, which allowed me to easily add the skin to both my Maitreya Lara body and Catwa head.  My picture really doesn’t do justice to Neva’s gorgeous tones and swirls of colors.  If you are planning to do some magical role play, and would like a free skin to start you on your journey, this free hunt gift from Stargazer Creations might be just what you need!  Ripley and I were able to complete the hunt in under an hour, so it won’t cost you a single Linden dollar and just a slight investment of time.

We’re off to find someone in need of a sprinkling of pixie dust.  Until my next post, happy shopping hunting!

~ Kat (and Ripley)
