New Year New Kicks

New Year New Kicks

Hello Fab Free’rs! It’s a brand new year and a new opportunity to make the best of all the future has in store. I for one intend to hit the ground running, pun absolutely intended. At the start of this new year with all the possibilities ahead I definitely need a new pair of shoes. Semller has our feet covered with their most recent group gift, a limited time free group join, and group-only sale. From now until January 8th the Semller group will be free to join and group members will get a 30% refund on all purchases while wearing the group tag. Also, group members can pick up a free fatpack of the Megalodeon sneakers. They are unisex in that there are male, female, and unrigged sizes included. These detailed shoes at Semller can be completely custom colored via a detailed color change hud. The hud has the ability to color several individual parts of the shoe or all of it at once. There are also 10 presets to choose from if you don’t want to pick the colors out yourself.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Legacy (Male, Female), Signature Gianni, Belleza Jake, Unrigged

No Signal

No Signal
Just because you’re stuck indoors, doesn’t mean you can’t look cute, amirite Fab Fam?  My New Year’s resolution is to be cute as a tiddly and ready to wink whenever and wherever!  (That sentence is up to you to figure out…)

Stay Cozy

Quinnty’s is starting the year off right with a cozy little cropped sweater as a group gift!  It comes with several different texture options (all themed around glitchy computers, something I hope the New Year doesn’t bring me…ahem!).  You can get yours by joining the Quinnty’s group for 50L, then pay the vendor 1L which will be promptly returned to you.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Hourglass Petite
  • Isis
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Maitreya Petite

Thong Song

I hope my subtitle doesn’t get random songs from the 2000’s in  your head (or maybe I do…), but this cute little sporty thong has me feeling chill and sexy all at once.  It’s the latest group gift from Mug, and comes in 4 different colours to keep you happy.  As with most of Mug’s releases, there are a lot of different sizes and bulges for male or female looks so these really are quite unisex.  To get to the different sizes and options, just use the HUD.   The Mug group is currently 250L to join, and there are several very nice group gifts on the wall there for you.

Sizes

  • Maitreya
  • Legacy
  • Freya
  • Kupra

Happy Chillin’!

All I want for Christmas is… some free mesh bodies and heads!

Coming Soon to Fab Free

It’s the most wonderful time of the year…

Advent is my favourite time of the year in Second Life. In fact, I go a bit crazy with it! This year has been no letdown, and the amazing list compiled at Fab Free this year was incredible! Time to give our amazing blog organizer Aline a round of applause. *claps*. Make sure you check out those calendars and see if any of the past gifts are available before the 24th of December. The Fab Free December advent list is here.

Advent Calendar at Altamura

Today I will be sharing the incredible advent gifts by Altamura this year. The Altamura group is currently free to join for a limited time, which will give you access to their 12 days of Christmas gifts, sitting under the tree at the store, and two free mesh avatars. Joining the group will also give you access to group gifts that are located around the store (you have to search for them in each section of the store), and there is also a free male mesh head at the back of the store which is a current group gift.

Altamura is known for gifting free, full avatars that include a mesh body and head that are (usually) joined together. This advent, they are gifting two full mesh body and head combos for men and women. These bodies are fully BOM and bento and they can be used out of the box with few limitations. My friend Remus and I are showing off the full avatars above. They are beautiful! This is perfect if you need a new avatar or look for free. In each box, a full mesh head and body are included. The head and body are one piece so you cannot wear another head or body with each piece. Altamura bodies fit Altamura clothes, and you can often get the female avatar to fit other brands like Maitreya or Slink with the aid of alphas. I have heard that the male body fits Adam sized clothing nicely, but I have not tested that out. You will need to use alphas (see below) to wear non-Altamura clothes with these bodies. Altamura has a list of all the companies that make Altamura-sized clothing which is handy if you need help finding clothing for your new body.

One thing that’s important to know about these gift bodies is that they are fully BOM and because of this, they do not include a body hud. So, to add makeups, skins, and tattoos you must use BOM products. You can even use BOM eyes and nails. Any system eyes or nails will work with these bodies. As there is no body hud, you must use add alphas manually to your outfits. In order to alpha out sections of the body,  you will need a set of alphas (like the ones that are used when you have a classic avatar). I found two stores that have a good set of alphas out for free with no group join required:

  1. The first free alpha sets kit is at Little Black Dress. Just click the bag on the ground and the alphas are yours.
  2. Slink also has a set of free alphas out at their main store. Click the board that says “extra alpha layers”.

For the Ladies…

The free female body on offer is called “Movin’ On” and she is gorgeous. The ad below pictures what her head looks like up close. A truly beautiful avatar.

MOVINGon

In addition to giving out these wonderful bodies, there are more gifts under the Christmas tree at Altamura. The red BOM shirt I am wearing underneath my sweater and the sparkly heels are two of those free gifts. The heels are fitted for Altamura, Maitreya, and Slink bodies.

Goodies for the Guys!

I pulled in my friend Remus for the post today. Remus is sporting the Take My Way male avatar, which is also free. He is wearing 3 other free advent gifts from Altamura’s calendar, including the sweater and the scarf. The sweater is sized for Altamura bodies only and the scarf will fit any avatar. The jeans he is wearing are BOM/system pants which can be found for free in everyone’s library. Details are listed in the credits below.

TAKE MY WAY GIFT

Another awesome freebie that’s out for the guys at Altamura right now is the Akakor Mesh head. I am not sure how long this head will be available for free, so I wanted to mention it for all the guys out there. This head is BOM and Omega compatible and it can be worn with any other mesh body! Normally, Altamura heads go for 3-4, 000 L so this is a great deal! Snatch it up which you can, boys!

Free Unisex Hair!

Coming Soon to Fab Free

The last thing I wanted to mention is the gifts at the Firestorm Major Event. Remus is wearing the free unisex Jaime hairstyle by Firelight which is currently free to get at the event. This hair can be worn on a male or female avatar and it is completely free, no group join required. This freebie is out for a limited time, and there is also a free arctic ferret, and a free black panther you can grab at the event. I can not find when this event ends, but it will be very soon because this is a holiday-themed event. Go while you still can to get the gifts there.

I wanted to give special thanks to Orion Swansong and Ryan Schultz for helping me prepare for this post! These bodies were new to me and they helped me out greatly. You can read Ryan Schultz’s review of the Altamura advent gift bodies here.

Go snatch all these great gifts up before it’s too late!

The Cat in the Hat

Cat in the Hat

Hello Fab Free, and Happy Weekend! I’ve got a quickie for you this Saturday morning that you’re going to love, so let’s get right to it. Jian has out the cutest Santa hats as group gifts. There are two versions, one with a puppy peeking out from under the hat, and the one I’m wearing with a kitten under the hat. Each hat has a touch menu with several color choices for the main part of the hat, and several fur textures for the kitten or puppy. Jian’s store group is free to join, and you can also still pick up their previous group gift.

Next up, I couldn’t resist sharing with you Cae’s Saturday Sale jewelry set. The beautifully detailed “Jingle” set includes pretty bow and jingle-bell earrings with a matching necklace. The set has a texture change hud with quite a few choices for the gemstones in the bow, and several metal options for the metal parts of the jewelry. At just 75 linden, you don’t want to miss this perfect for the holidays set at Cae.

That’s all for now, go get some!

Cheeky Elf

Hello there Fab Free’rs. Thank you so much for being here. I cannot even handle how close to Christmas we are! I’m also finding myself both excited and overwhelmed by all the giftiness (yes I know that’s not a word) around the grid. There are so many events and advents and hunts, it’s a lot! For this post I picked up free gifts from Mister Razzor, BONDI, and IDTTY at Access, and a fun Marketplace find by The Bold Llama. Keep reading for all the details!

Mister Razzor

I think it goes without saying that Mister Razzor is a favorite tattoo shop of mine. At the current round of Access, Mister Razzor has the cutest holiday face tattoo for free. It has pretty little snowflakes near your eyes, and says “let it go.” This tattoo comes in a BOM tattoo layer only. It also comes in white as well as black. You’ll need to join the free-to-join Access event group to get this and the many other free gifts. Just look for the blue gift boxes at each vendor booth.

BONDI

These unisex wire-frame glasses are the free Access group gift by BONDI at the Access event. The glasses have resize scripts, and include a color change hud with 4 preset choices for the frames and 4 the metal parts of the frames. The same hud also allows you to adjust the opacity of the lenses.

IDTTY

Also at Access, is this lovely matte lip-color by IDTTY. This lipstick shade is one of 4 subtle matte shades in the free “Real Love Collection” gift by IDTTY. This lipstick giftset comes in appliers for Catwa, Genus, and Lelutka heads only.

The Bold Llama

Lastly, I couldn’t resist this cute holiday top by The Bold Llama that I stumbled across on the Marketplace. This cute tank-top is just 25 linden, and if “cheeky” doesn’t suit you, you’ll find quite a few other choices like “Queen” and “Lit.” Each of these fun festive tops comes in quite a few sizes, and has an alpha layer so it can be worn by classic avatars.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Ocacin, Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), EBody, Tonic (Curvy, Fine), TMP, Classic Mesh (xs-XL) + Alpha Layer

A Royal Mess

A Royal Mess

I woke up this morning knowing that what my soul required for a bit of respite was some very beautiful Christmas cookies!  I pottered off to the kitchen to whip, mix, bake and make a royal mess.  It took me a bit of time, and I’ve left a bit of a disaster behind me…but the cookies my heart desired are here!  A bit of Christmas magic never goes awry.

What’s This?  More Gifts!

I know we’re all drowning in the generosity of so many awesome designers right now, but I’ve found even more goodness to keep you busy picking up, unboxing and trying on.  Your inventory may hate me by the end of all this, but I’m sure you won’t mind more goodies!  I made my way over to Access and found that they’re spoiling us with a maaaassive pile of gifts.  There are also loads of gifts for the guys there, so make sure you pass on the word to any guys looking for goodies.  Here’s what I picked up that really inspired me to put together this baking scene:

  • FREE Shirt by Redgirl sized for Legacy and Maitreya in a full fatpack of different texture options
  • FREE Knickers by Mug sized for Maitreya, Freya, Legacy and Kupra and different bulge options for unisex wear (sizes are in the HUD)
  • FREE Choker by Seka with dark, light and pink versions
  • FREE Cookies by WetCat (if someone clicks the plate, it gives them a cookie!)
  • FREE Baking and Kitchen clutter by Tentacio (17 items in the box!)

This round of Access is running until January 8th!

Om nom nom!

Make a Scene

Making a Scene

One of my most favorite things to do in Second Life is decorate. I am constantly rearranging my little house and decorating for the seasons and holidays. And I’m really getting into the landscaping too. I love being able to make a perfect scene.

And speaking of scenes… I was able to put together this quite little scene in a coy corner of my house all for free. I dropped by one of my most favorite decor designers today: Reka Nutmeg and was so excited to see a ton of free gifts set out. Now, I hadn’t stopped by the main store in some time so many of these gifts may have been out for awhile but they were all new to me.  Just join the free Group and scoop up your treasures!

As with all free gifts and group gifts on the Grid, these could go poof at any time. So don’t wait around too long to go make your own scene!

I hope you’ve had a very happy weekend Fab Free! I’m glad you’re here. The Jail event is having an anniversary round. You I’m sure saw Aline’s post “Put on Your Weekend Pants” featuring a few of the free event gifts in honor of their anniversary. Today I have a few more I’m excited to share with you. Each of the gifts at The Jail are free, you just need to wear the event group tag. The group is free to join, and I’ll put a link below that you can copy and paste into in-world local chat to join the group.

Giuliadesign

The vest style top I am wearing is part of the free Jail event gift by Giuliadesign. I like this piece a lot because I think it looks sexy, but makes me feel like I am being sexy on my terms, for myself. That is an empowering feeling. This top comes in a dark purple color with a white collar as shown. There’s also a matching mini skirt and shoes in the gift, which I chose not to wear.EUSOPIA

  • Shirt Sizes Included: Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Maitreya Lara

Hanz

Appliers/Layers Included: BOM Layers (Faded, Fresh), Belleza Applier, Slink Applier, Signature Applier, Omega Applier, Maitreya Applier

Madame Noir

Lastly, the choker I have on is a free Jail event gift by Madame Noir. It’s called the Elektra necklace and it has a cool metal clasp in the front. It also has resize scripts, and a color change hud. The hud has several solid color choices for the leather/fabric and different metallic options for the metal bits.
