Happy 10th Anniversary Essences!


Happy Anniversary Essences

If I had to choose a favorite skin shop in Second Life I’d without hesitation choose Essences as m personal favorite. There are lots of amazing skins in SL. Still, Essences has for many years been the source of the skins I wear the most. Recently Essences celebrated 10 years in Second Life. In celebration their in world VIP group and the Essences Newsletter group are both temporarily free to join. There are also 3 new fat-pack Newsletter group gift head appliers.

Each of the 3 Essences appliers is for a different mesh head. There is one for Catwa, one for Genus, and one for Lelutka heads. These free gifts come with a head applier in each of the available skin tones with a light brow, dark brow, or no brow option. Don’t have the body applier to go with these gorgeous new skins? No problem. The body appliers are just 1 linden per mesh body type. I’m wearing the “Sybil” gift applier for the Catwa heads in the above photo. This applier was made with the Catwa Catya head, however I think she’s quite pretty on my Catwa Koura head. To get your copy of these absolutely beautiful free gifts make your way to Essences, join the free-to-join Essences Newsletter group, and click the gift vendors.

Southern Summer


Summer Romance

Sometimes I wish southern summer evenings were really as they are often described in books or depicted in movies. The reality is far less pleasant. One more thing to enjoy about Second Life, summer evenings are every bit as pleasant as you want them to be. I got caught up in the sexy yet romantic look of this dollarbie romper from La Perla and settled into an evening picnic complete with mulled wine and sweets. Hopefully my inamorato will join me soon for a romantic evening rendezvous. For now keep reading for info about this pretty dollarbie find at La Perla, or scroll down for the credits.

La Perla

It’s been a while since I came across something pretty and lacy to share with you. Needless to say this “bridal bodysuit” by La Perla quickly caught my eye. It’s just 1 linden, with no need to join a group of any kind. The bodysuit/romper comes in white only. You’ll find this pretty dollarbie waiting on the second floor of the La Perla store.

Sizes Included: Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Maitreya Lara, Legacy, Slink (Physique, Hourlgass)

The swimsuit has a color/texture change hud with 3 tropical print options for the ruffles, and 3 solid colors. The hold pose shown is included as part of the cute pink tote.

Roller Girl


Roller Girl

Come skate with me Fab Free! It’s always sunny in Second Life, so why not take advantage of the never-ending sunshine and cruise around the boardwalk while listening to some tunes. This cute roller girl look is made up almost entirely of free or inexpensive items, including the free-for-everyone bikini gift at Glitzz.

The month of June may be close to an end, but Pride is always. Needless to say I was excited to find this cute rainbow bikini for free at Glitzz, no group needed. It comes in a handful of sizes and includes a hud to change the metal bits that are part of the ties. To get your copy of this free gift, head over to Glitzz and find the gift vendor near the back of the store.

The blue striped knee socks are a dollarbie Marketplace find by a store called *1* Tsutsujiya Overknee World. They come in a classic system layer, an Omega applier, and a Maitreya applier.

Finally, these cute skates are another Marketplace find. I’d tell you the store name, but there doesn’t appear to be one. One quick side note, I think it’s worth mentioning that the creator’s profile is now completely blank. That said, these skates are just 49 linden on the Marketplace. Also, there are a few other versions for the same price. These skates come with resize scripts and have a skate AO that takes over when you walk or run. I did have to turn my regular AO off to have the skate animation work properly.

I hope you have as much fun with this Roller Girl look as I did!

Here are the details:

Hair – TRUTH Aislin – Brunette
Head – Catwa – Koura
Headphones – Petite Mort RSD Pink Headphones 50L/Play *Originally Shown Here
Skin – Essences – Vanya
Bubble Gum – Pink Fuel Bubble Gum
Bikini – [Glitzz] Glenda Bikini – Pride Gift – 0L Free Gift
Tattoo – {WitchCraft} Whisper tattoo
Socks – *1*Tsutsujiya Overknee World – Striped Sky-blue/White Overknee Socks – 1L on the Marketplace

Electric Zoom


Electric

Welcome back to the blog Fab Free’rs! I had a little time for a quick post and I wanted to share this lovely lace set with you. It’s a Marketplace dollarbie by Zoom. I don’t shop on the Marketplace, nearly as often as I do in-world, but when I do this exactly the type of find I enjoy most. It’s a brand I’m familiar with and doesn’t require me to wear a tag or join a group. Not to mention it really is just 1 linden. The set comes in the black version shown, and an equally pretty white version.

Sizes Included: TMP, Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass)

Also, if you’re in the market for some new tattoos or facial hair, Mister Razzor has been having a huge sale, and there’s one day left. The sign says the sale is on until Saturday. I’m not sure how much time that really leaves, but if you hurry you can score Omega applier tattoos like the one Pru is showing for just 60 linden each. There are male and female tattoos, so there’s bound to be something for everyone. I’ll cross my fingers that this awesome sale will last through the entire day Saturday.

Here are the details:

Hair – RunAway – [RA] Britney TSS Hair – Ombres
Head – Catwa Koura
Skin – Essences – Vanya
Makeup – ~Shiny Stuffs~ CATWA Mei Applier set
Jewelry – ^^Swallow^^ Indira Face Jewellery 0.1
Outfit – zOOm – Silentia Top and Skirt – 1L on the Marketplace
Tattoo – ((Mister Razzor)) Bianca Tattoo – 60L until 6/8/2019

No Slogans

Slogan Tees

Hello There Fab Free, thank goodness it’s the weekend! I’m glad you stopped by. For this pose I wanted to share this cutely snarky top by Trashed with you. I personally don’t mind logos or slogans, as long as I find them visually appealing or they have a message I can agree with or laugh about. This one made me laugh. The long sleeved crop top is the Women’s Stuff Hunt prize at Trashed. The Women’s Stuff is running through the end of May, so there’s just a little bit of time left. The WSH prize at Trashed is 1 linden, and comes in quite a few sizes.

Sizes included: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass),  Belleza (Venus, Freya), Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Ocacin (Regular, Voluptuous)

Hunt Hint – “Hidden Under Your Future”

Here are the details:

Hair – RunAway – [RA] Britney TSS Hair – Ombres
Head – Catwa – Koura
Skin – Essences – Vanya
Top – Trashed – <T> No Slogans top – 1L WSH Prize

Happy When it Rains


Happy When it Rains

Hi Fab Free! Thank you for being here. Have you noticed all the hunts happening? It seems to me there are quite a few. I did a little bit of the Save Earth Hunt, and wanted to share two of the gifts with you. The Save Earth Hunt is a grid-wide dollarbie hunt. Each prize is just 1 linden, and the hunt object is a pink rosebud. The dress, and the animated umbrella Pru is having a ball with are both 1 linden SEH prizes. Keep reading for all the extra information!

The Umbrella – I thought this fun umbrella prop by Orphic for the Save Earth Hunt was just too cute to not share with you. It comes in a day version (shown) and a night version (not shown). By clicking the handle of the umbrella you can turn the rain particle effect on or off. Clicking the top part of the umbrella will let you start or stop the animated pose. This playful hunt prize is just 1 linden, so don’t miss out!

Hint – “Try for the Hi-Score”

The Dress – The patchwork and denim sundress Pru has on is by Freda. This style dress just screams happy warm sunshine days in my opinion. Also, I think it would be just as cute with almost any type of shoe you wanted to wear with it. The dress is another dollarbie Save Earth Hunt prize. It is mesh and comes in quite a few sizes. Also included are standard/classic mesh sizes and an alpha layer for classic non-mesh avatars. Don’t miss this adorable dollarbie!

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

Welcome to the Sun


Freespirits

Namaste Fellow Fab Free Flower Children, and welcome back to the blog! Spring is officially here and the dollarbie Boho Hunt prize at Fukin’ Cute had me feeling like a free-spirit so I grabbed my guy Blue once again for a groovy adventure. It was a lot of fun teaming up with him again to try and capture the feeling of such an iconic time period. His tie-dye shirt, and Pru’s long skirt and halter top are both part of the same hunt prize at Fukin’ Cute.  I hope you enjoy this 1 linden Boho Hunt gift as much as we did.

His Tie-Dye Shirt – Nothing says “Free Spirit” more than tie dye if you ask me. This long-sleeve tee is the gift for the guys in the Boho Hunt prize at Fukin’ Cute. It comes in several mesh sizes, and includes an alpha layer making it suitable for classic avatars. To get your copy just look for the Boho Hunt object, a cute little llama, at Fukin’ Cute and purchase it for 1 linden.

Sizes Included: Standard Mesh (xs – XL), Nardcotix David, Belleza Jake, Signature Gianni, Niramyth Aesthetic, Slink Male, TMP, Absolute Creations Adam

Her Skirt & Halter Top – Something about the green and white mandala-like pattern on this outfit by Fukin’ Cute just feels like spring. The outfit is the female part of the 1L Boho Hunt gift at Fukin’ Cute. With this outfit you’ll get the skirt and top in several sizes. I like the idea of being able to wear the top and skirt separately. All you have to do is find the Boho Hunt llama and purchase it for 1 linden to get your copy.

Sizes Included: Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Maitreya Lara, Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Slink (Physique, Hourglass)

The Valkyrie

 

The Valkyrie
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! I had so much fun with this look, and it’s almost entirely gachas and group gifts. Sometimes my favorite part of Second Life really is just playing dress-up. I think Pru looks like a fearsome angelic warrior or a Valkyrie from Norse mythology. For details about each of the freebies and cheapies that make up this look just keep reading!

The Wings – These steampunk inspired wings by Rezology can be found on the Marketplace for just 1 linden. They are modifiable so they can be resized, recolored, and even moved around so the gears and such show on the outside of the wings rather than the inside.

The Tattoo – This group gift tattoo by This is Wrong is unisex. It is a fully body tattoo of intricate geometric lines. It reminds me a lot of art deco style line work. The gift includes several appliers for both male and female mesh bodies, and there are 3 color options. The This is Wrong group is just 50 linden to join.
Appliers Included: Female – Belleza/Maitreya, TMP, Slink / Male – Signature Gianni, Belleza Jake, TMP, Slink

The Bodysuit – This gorgeous detailed bodysuit is from the Bath’kol gacha set at Sweet Thing. It is the Rare item in the set. It includes a color change hud with preset options for different sections of the bodysuit. The Bath’kol gacha is 75 linden per play and can be found at the Sweet Thing store.

Bath'kol by Sweet Thing.

The Pose – The Pose Fair is in full swing and there are tons of free gifts. Special thanks to one of our readers Azure for mentioning the virtual truckload of freebies at this event! This particular pose is the free Pose Fair gift by posEd. It comes in a pose stand as well as just the pose alone.
