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!

Be Still…

On the Western Skyline

Hello Fabulouses!  I hope you are having a wonderful weekend.  Usually, Ripley and I have an item of clothing to tell you about, but our Fabulous Finds today include a free skin that you can pick up as a member of the Fabulously Free in SL group.  It’s not often that you can pick up such a lovely skin applier for a song, so I was super excited to pick up this gift!

A Natural Beauty

The gorgeous free Shara skin is flawless, and features slightly pink cheeks, dark eyebrows, and a frosty lip color.  Inside the free package, there are five skin tones:  apricot, caramel, pineapple, sand, and taupe, with two varieties of lip color (one slightly darker than the other).  In my photo, I’m wearing the “sand” tone with the lighter lips (v1).  One thing I was thrilled with is the box included both the head and body appliers, so I had just what I needed to change up my look with no further purchases. I really love this skin!  In order to wear it on my Catwa head and Maitreya Lara body, I first wore the Omega System Relay HUDS for Catwa and Maitreya, then added the Shara applier.  Within a few moments, my appearance was updated effortlessly!  I did add a black eyeliner to emphasize my peepers, but other than that, what you see is the skin straight from the applier.  Isn’t it just lovely?  To pick up this beauty for yourself, simply teleport to 7 Deadly s[K]ins, and travel to the group gifts section.  Locate the Fab Free shelf, and give the vendor a click.

It’s Almost Advent Time!

Beginning on December 1st, and running through New Year’s Day, 7 Deadly s[K]ins will be featuring an Advent event with male and female gifts for 7 Deadly s[K]ins group members.  That’s 32 gifts, and yes, fellas, this includes you, too!  Currently, you can join the group for free, but during advent, the group join fee will increase to 1,000L.   The gifts will be located behind the couches of the male and female departments.  I’m really excited to see what each gift will contain!  If you are interested, make sure you join the group soon, because the normal join fee is 250L, and I’m not sure how long the free join will last.

…My Steampunk Heart

In our travels today, Ripley and I also visited Pixel Box Design, where my hound with a nose for fashion led me to my second group gift, the free Steampunk Old Heart Grunge and Glass necklace, which is a present for members of the Teleport Hub group.  Featuring an antique gold finish, an eclectic assortment of pendants, and even a pair of glasses, this funky bauble comes with a resizer so you can adjust it to fit your avi.  It also allows you to change the style of the clock that sits just above the heart.  It’s a fun piece of jewelry!  The Teleport Hub has a 10L join fee, but membership gives you access to a ton of free gifts around the grid.  It’s one of those groups I joined a long time ago, and I keep picking up gifties as a group member, so it was well worth the teensy join fee!

I hope the rest of your weekend is relaxing.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

It’s Called Hairology, Chantal

7DS Chantal Close

Chantal

Hello hello Fab Free’rs! I’m so glad you’re here, I have a lot to share with you! So rather than ease into the post, I’ll just get right to the good stuff starting with this absolutely beautiful group gift skin from 7 Deadly Skins. I love the look of this face on the Catwa Sofia head. Her name is Chantal and she’s the November group gift at 7 Deadly Skins. The beauty marks really make the skin for me. This generous gift includes Omega body/head appliers in each of the 7 skin tones. There is also a male skin group gift available. The 7 Deadly Skins group is 225 linden to join at this time, and there are monthly group gifts.
Hairology Gifts

Hairology 2nd Anniversary Gifts

Yep, it’s anniversary time for Hairology, which of course means FREE hair. It’s hard to believe that Hairology is already 2 years old. I can still clearly recall when it was still being planned and put together. In celebration most of the Hairology participating designers have put out some pretty awesome FREE gifts. I know I picked up one from just about every booth and it’s quite possible I missed one or two. Rather than show each and every one, I decided to pick out four personal favorites. These gifts are completely FREE, no group needed, just click the Anniversary cake at each booth and pay zero linden.

  • First, the Pink Hustler gift at Hairology is the cute little knit choker Pru is wearing in each of the photos. This FREE gift comes with a color change hud allows you to change the color of the knit part of the collar, the laces, and the metal bits. Most of the colors are in the realm of pastel, but there are some bold colors as well.
  • Next, the hair pictured in the left photo is the FREE Hairology gift from RunAway. This gorgeous long hairstyle comes with a color hud that includes 9 edgy dip dyed/fade hair color options. There are 3 hair sizes for this style as well, fitted, boobs, and regular.
  • The hairstyle pictured in the top photo and the center of the second photo is the Hairology gift from Analog Dog. I love these extra long wavy braids. With this FREE gift you’ll get the Rampion hair style with 8 color huds. Each hud has several color options. Also included is a set of classic system layer hair bases, and an optional flexi add-on for the wavy ends of the braids.
  • Finally, the hair shown on the right in the above photo is the FREE gift at Hairology from Damselfly. Another long wavy style, this one is more tousled and full. This pretty hairstyle comes with a “Mixed and Faded” color hud that includes 40 (yes 40!) color options, most of which are a variation of blond, brunette, black, or red. The hair also comes in 2 sizes.

Glitter

Lastly, the cute little bodysuit Pru has on is a FREE gift from Glitter exclusively for Fabulously Free in SL group members. This kitty faced pink bodysuit with an applier hud, and classic system layers. As always the Fabulously Free in SL group is FREE to join. All you need to do to get your copy of this cute FREE gift is head over to Glitter, make sure to wear your Fab Free group tag, and click the gift vendor.

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

I Put a Spell on You

A Spell
I put a spell on you, and now you’re mine. Okay, maybe not! There’s really no witchcraft needed for this witchy alternative look. Just a few group gifts are all you need, so keep reading for the details on how to get them.

Free Hair

This wild hairstyle is the most recent Fabulously Free in SL group gift by Adoness. It’s a fun side-swept style comes in 3 colors, a vibrant orange, a deep green, and the rich burgundy color shown. Also included in the gift are 3 matching system layer hair bases. I used the default Catwa hair base. To get your copy of this FREE gift, just wear your Fabulously Free in SL group tag and head over to Adoness. Then click the group gift vendor behind the counter. If you’re not already a Fab Free group member, not to worry, the group is FREE to join.

Floating Skulls

I’ve always liked the theme of “good and evil” which is one reason I picked up these floating skulls from Evermore. They are a current group gift and the Evermore group is just 50 linden to join. There are two versions of these precariously floating skulls included in this fun group gift. The set shown has one plain black skull, and one plain white skull. The second set of skulls are also black and white but have a glowing emblem on their foreheads. I really think they are such a cool and sinister accessory.

I Put a Spell on You

Finally this cute little tank top is a current group gift available at OOPS. I love the slightly macabre imagery and the phrase reminds me of several things I love about Halloween. This is also the sort of top I’d wear year-round, not just during the Halloween season. The OOPS group is just 10 linden to join, and there are several group gifts available at this time, including the sweaters I previously blogged in my “Creepy and Cute” post.

Mesh Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Slink (Hourglass, Physique). TMP

This Witch Right Here

This Witch
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! I’m happy to be here, after a long battle with a terrible allergy monster I finally feel like a person again! I missed being here. I’m also so excited about the new group gifts, and a fun little gacha I have to share with you. I hope you like them as much as I do.

The Skin Pru’s In

Not too long ago Essences put out a new group gift for the Essences VIP group. This pretty skin is named Tawny, and she is a semi-full release skin. Yep, you heard right, the Essences group gift includes Catwa head and Maitreya body appliers in all current skin tones. The skin was modeled around the Catwa Catya head. It includes a shape, and a brow shape also intended for the Catwa Catya head. The Essences VIP group has a one time join fee of 444 linden. Though intended for the Catya head by Catwa, I love how this gift skin looks on my Catwa Sofia head.

Halloween Gacha Fun

While wandering through The Black Fair recently, I came across these fun Omega applier crop tops by Holli Pocket. There are several loosely Halloween themed crops to be had. The best part is they are just 50 linden per play. I am not going to tell you how many lindens I plunked into this gacha at The Black Fair, but I will say I’m not disappointed. I think they are a fun addition to my casual wardrobe.

Witch Claws

These super long bento nails are a recent group gift at Pink Hustler. The aptly named “Witch” nails are extra long for a decidedly wicked look. The nails are meant for Maitreya hands and come with a color change hud that includes 3 variations on several muted pastel shades. I chose a black to gray fade for this look. The Pink Hustler group is 400 linden to join, however members get access to the wall of group gifts and a 5% shopping credit on purchases made while wearing the Pink Hustler group tag.

Here are the details, enjoy!
