Hey fab fans!

One of my favorite things about blogging in second life is the ability to create a fantasy in a photo. Something that you can imagine has a story behind it. We can morph our avatars into just about anything, so really you are limited only by your imagination. I’m sort of an airy-fairy girl on the inside, so I had a lot of fun with this photo shoot. I built myself a little enchanted fairy forest (with some nifty goodies from Fantasy Illuminations). I also dug out my old fairy wings. They are animated/scripted and my faves.

This cute dress from Ari-Pari. It is a gift in the Life is Sweet and So are You Hunt.   This hunt runs until March 31. It is a 1L hunt, but each designer has the option of a 25L exclusive item. This cute dress is a 1L prize.  It comes in:

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique

Stay tuned!  Next time I’ve got some Bond Girl mystique for you!  😀

I found this really nice Summer Eyeshadow by Altice for just 1L in their group gift section.  The group itself is free to join and there are plenty of other 1L makeup gifts for group members.  To complete my look, I found some Smudged Eyeliner from Gaia Rose.  This was also one of their free group gifts (the group is free to join.)

Coming Soon to Fab Free
Hey, Fab Free! I like making new avatars/looks, and I made this one in the spirit of Billie Eyelish with the green and black hairsyle. Do you think it looks like her? It kinda succeeded but I think she ended up having her own unique look… this new avatar I created is super cute either way.

Let’s get down to the details which are a beautiful 1 L mesh body and this great free sweater!

Sweet’s Ruth Mesh Body

As many of you know, I have been working on the Fab Free Mesh body and Head Listing. I recently made a few updates to the page so you may want to look at some of the new bodies I posted. I decided to show off a body from that list, which is one of Ruth mesh bodies. This one is Sweet’s Ruth. Isn’t the body gorgeous? It fits many Maitreya clothes and shoes, although you will need to use the alpha hud to make many of the clothes fit. To use the alpha version of the body, just open up the box included in the folder that has the alpha HUD! This body is BOM and works with all BOM skins and other products. The Sweet’s Ruth mesh body costs only 1 L on the marketplace.

Here are some more details about the body:

Fits: Maitreya clothes and feet (flat, mid, and high) for the most part, with the use of the alpha hud provided.
Omega/Bakes on Mesh (BOM)?  This body is BOM only.
Bento? Yes.
Other Notes: Includes mesh nails with a nail colour hud. There is no mesh head included with this body.

You may also want to be aware of the following known issues about the body that the creator makes a note of:

“- A small glitch can appear between neck and head
(usually on high ground)
– A small glitch can appear with feet and hands in extreme poses.
– Medium High feet often need an alpha to fit Maitreya Shoes (provided!)
– Older skins with painted on nails will not match mesh feet. Use a nailfix! (provided!)”

Just as a side note, I used the Ariel head from LOGO to create this avatar. The LOGO group is free to join and every month in 2021 they are going to sell an older head of every month to group members for only 300L. In order to use the head, you need the 3.1 version LOGO customization hud. I was pleased to hear about this sale and grabbed the Ariel head up for that low price. The head is BOM compatible. There is NO mesh head included with the Sweet’s Ruth body, so you will need to use another mesh head of your own with it or get one of the mesh heads listed on the Fab Free Mesh body and Head Listing to complete a mesh look. Alternatively, you can wear the Sweet’s Ruth body with a classic system head if you prefer.

Beatrix

Another item I am showcasing today is the Beatrix Sweater Dress, which you can grab at the zOOm Mainstore. I found this gift by using the Maitreya Gifts, Sales & News group, and they have many gifts that were available for free during the Christmas train event this group ran over the holidays. Technically, the event ended around Christmas time, but a lot of designers still have their gifts out at their store. You can look at the gifts using this page, although some of them may not be available still. It’s worth a look though because I found that quite a few of the gifts are still out! I had my eye on this lovely sweater by zOOm on the list and to my delight, it was still available! Simply join the Maitreya Gifts, Sales & News (MSGN) group for free and the sweater is yours. zOOm has 2 free MSGN gifts out at the moment so grab them while you’re there!

Sizes Included

  • Maitreya
  • Isis
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique

Thanks for reading, Fab Free! Have fun!

Decoy Duck

Fabfree Post: Decoy Duck (look 1)

Life is like a hurricane here in Duckburg

A whirlwind of hunts, events, and new gifts keep us all quite busy here at Fabfree and I want to give a shot out to the ladies who have been able to handle this with ease, *you all make it look so easy* and grace. I’ve always looked up to how much you all get done during the week as well as your real-life. You ladies have it down to a definite science, however, I’m as sporadic as my posts and just as haphazard.

Decoy‘s Mainstore Hunt – Jack Spice has returned for the season and left 13 pumpkins scattered throughout the waterfall caves behind Decoy for L$25 each! Search high and low for these treasures, while some hide in plain sight, others will need a more careful eye. All items compatible with Maitreya Lara, Belleza Freya, and Meshbody Legacy. Jack Spice Hunt ends November 1st so you have time to get there and find the goodies!

There is also a free subscriber gift of an exclusive color of the Raquel top, with 3 additional colors exclusively available to VIPs! So make sure you slap that subscriber box at Decoy and go to the history to snag the goodies! Demos are available of hunt items ♥

All of the Jack Spice Hunt Items Fit:

  • Maitreya
  • Freya
  • Legacy

Decoy Main Store Hunt

Fabfree Post: Decoy Duck (look 2)

Looking for a great pose for you and your pet pooch? This Pet Treat Bento Pose is super adorable and it comes with two options, the one pictured above and another option where the left arm is down. Along with the duo pose package comes a mesh bone to toss your pup. This is way too good to be just L$1, but it could only be from the one and only amazing Reve Obscura store! So head over to their marketplace and snag this one because there is no telling if it will remain at this price.

Girls Don’t Like Boys

FabFree Post: Girls Don't Like Boys

Girls like Cars and Money

Yes, I indeed brought it back to 2002! When Good Charlotte sang those magical words I was just like every other fangirl out there drooling over the band members, dreamy bad boy looks, and their catchy pop-rock lyrics. I remember listening and memorizing all the words as a 20-year-old living in Vegas and loving the dry desert air. Before I jump into a timewarp machine and go back to revisit my youth I’m going to jump in this sexy beast of a car and take it for a test run, so I’ll leave you with all the details ❤ Happy Shopping!

Asty Custom Auto has this pretty rad car on the marketplace for free! All those car-loving women out there should go grab their own! It’s driveable and you can also leave it out as decoration, or to just show it off to your friends. Coming with four color options and a few instructions for our first-time drivers out there.

Masenka has this very hot outfit on the shop’s marketplace for L$1. I know! We all love our Dollarbies, well I know I do. This one is perfection dripping in red leather! Sadly for most out there, it only is available for Maitreya, I know, but for those who have it, should really go and click to snag this skirt and top. I was playing around with different clothing options I have and the red matches quite of few “popular” shop item palettes.

While floating around the Marketplace I happened to trip over these heels from Legendaire for L$49 you get 20 color options to choose from. The very simple heel can go with almost every outfit you have going on and is a great addition to your shopping cart!

Heels Fit:

  • Slink
  • Maitreya
  • Belleza

Eyes for you

FabFree Post:Eyes for you
I only have eyes for you, dear….

Today I hunted the Marketplace for some cute things to share. I almost always stumble upon cool things I love and end up using forever. Like the rug from malone, L$1 on the mp, totally worth it with 10 (YES 10) cool textures! I have been a huge fan of this shop and their gifts for the MP for almost a year now. I use them all the time and totally love the newest creation feature here. This texture is my new favorite and is perfect for this gloomy spring we are all having by adding a POP of color.

Finding the perfect pose can be hard for a lot of people, I know that I often purchase poses and I find myself regretting it, however, this is not the case today! This pose from DePERLA is a FREE GIFT from the shop to you straight on the MP! There is no doubt what my avi is feeling this moment captured in time.

It’s all about the eyes, and with FREE mesh eyes available in blue and brown there is no going wrong here. Like most eyes, they are unisex and are again from the MP this FREE GIFT is given to you by MARIARA the only negative about them is that you may need to rotate the eyes when you wear them, but once you get them placed correctly you’ll sparkle like a diamond in the sun!

🎃That voodoo that you do 🎃

Happy Halloween everyone! 🎃 Wearing Pure Poison’s animated (check out the video at 10 seconds to see the hat and skirt blow in the wind!) Sexy Witch Outfit available at Uber, I have made a video featuring a new free dance at Move! Animations called Selly 12 Bento Dance and a fun animated Halloween Standing Broom by HelaMiyo that you can pick up on Marketplace for 1L!

Dancing for FREE!

Move! Animations has released a new line of Selly Bento Dance Animations, and with that there is a brand new gift in store called Selly 12 Bento Dance.  It’s almost half a minute long, and while there is a woman on the ad, I think this one could be classified as unisex!  Just touch the sign and get it for FREE!

If the broom fits, ride it!

Click on over to the HelaMiyo Marketplace store for this fun animated broom that you can stand on.  I set myself to fly and zooooomed through the skies of Dreadville, but it also worked great as a posing animation for my photo too.  Can’t go wrong for 1L!

FabFree: 🎃That voodoo that you do 🎃 (2 of 2 - Photo)

Note:  The Pure Poison Sexy Witch Fatpack does include everything you see me wearing and it’s own broom.  If it is not in your pack, head back to Uber, and grab it in the demo ;). There was a little mixup!

Don’t let the days go by

Don't let the days go by

I can’t even think of any car terms off the top of my head to throw out and pretend I’m doing something to this shiny red car in front of me. Lame. But let’s skip all that and cut to the chase. No reason to be coy, right? My butt looks fantastic in these shorts. And even better? Yours will too!

Just 1L!

I grabbed this outfit by N-Uno on the marketplace for 1L! I realize I’m not showing most of it, but here’s the marketplace link so you can see the vendor ad for yourself. The shirt and shorts are separate pieces and they each come in 5 sizes, L-XXS. The outfit comes in the color I’m showing as well as a bunch of others. All for 1 silly little L!

Fifty Linden Friday!

I love a good pair of boots. I got the ones that I’m wearing here from paper arrow for Fifty Linden Friday. There was this pair and another darker shade for 50L each. Do I even need to say that I bought both? Yeah, ’cause I bought both… Each pair comes sized for Maitreya and Slink.

There are lots of other great things available for FLF as well. And don’t forget that the Saturday sale is tomorrow!

Still Got Mad Love For You Baby

Still Got Mad Love For You Baby

It’s proving to be a busy weekend between Memorial Day stuff and all of the graduation parties, but I wanted to sneak in a quick post here in honor of what I believe to be the unsung hero of any outfit – appliers. We go on about hair and clothes, but what’s there behind it all, holding everything together? Appliers. You could even say that I have “mad love” for appliers. See what I did there? The blog title total fits now and couldn’t possibly just be a song that I’ve been listening to a lot lately.

New Ink

I love a good tattoo and this one is soooooo pretty. And FREE, which obviously makes it even better! It’s a new group gift from Lush. You know the routine…join Lush’s free group and go to their store to pick up the prettiness. Easy peasy.

Makeup Too

Sintiklia has a box of free stuff in their store too. Well actually it’s 1L but same difference, right? This one doesn’t even require a group join, just buy the gift wrapped box that’s sitting on the front desk. You’ll get this eyeshadow and lipstick, as well as a smattering of other good stuff like hair and eyes.
