FabFree – Fabulously Free in SL

Simply Fabulous Free and Under L$75 Finds in Second Life – Since 2007




My Second Life closet seems to have taken a leaf or three out of the pages of my first. It’s laughably messy for one thing, and for another, it’s slowly being conquered by t-shirts. Solid colored ones, ones with slogans or symbols or band logos…I find them difficult to resist and this was most certainly true with the t-shirt pictured. It’s perky purple and pink tie and dye design is simple but eye catching and needless to say I fell in love with it as soon as I stepped into the retirement sale room at Imbue. At 50L I felt that it was a steal but if you’re not as big a t-shirt fan as I am there are other clothing items at the sale for you to peruse. The shirt comes in five standard mesh sizes (XXS – L) and has a very good alpha layer. While you’re there and if it strikes your fancy join the Imbue group for 50L and slap the Midnight Mania board or try your luck on the Letters. Oh and don’t forget to pick up the group gifts, one of which has been blogged by Prudence {HERE}

As the pattern on the shirt reminded me of galaxies I quickly paired it up with another closet staple of mine, the skater skirt. The one above comes from Mag<3 B‘s Marketplace store and will cost you only 5L. It comes in five standard mesh sizes (XS -XL) as well as sizes specific to Slink, Belleza, and Maitreya bodies. The light and airy textures are wonderful and not only that it has a subtle dusting of glitter over it which I thought tied in nicely with the shirt.

Up next are the garter socks from Sn@tch and boots from Baby Monkey. These two stores were some of the very first I’ve stepped into in my first few days of Second Life and I’ve come back time and again because of their quality products and generous designers. The Shannon garter socks pack contains thirteen different colors of system layered socks as well as Omega and Slink applier HUDs. It’s currently in one of Sn@tch‘s riot vendors and I got my copy at 63L. If you’re planning on getting these bring a friend or seven. Sn@tch has six riot vendors and you can try to see just how low you can bring them. When you’re done hop by to Baby Monkey to pick up these boots. Baby Monkey has a 20L join fee and past group gifts like those cute boots above cost 10L each.

The skin I’m wearing is 7 Deadly s{K}ins‘ latest group gift called Klaasje. I love the subtle makeup on the skin as well as the fact that this month’s gift was really very generous. Two system skins in the tone Caramel, Lelutka and Catwa mesh face applier, shape and eyebrow shape along with a style card. 7 Deadly s{K}ins has a group fee of 150L but the Klaasje skin and all past group gifts will be available to you for free this month so it’s most certainly worth it. To get a look at the male group gift by 7 Deadly s{K}ins it’s been blogged {HERE} by Loki.

To top it off is the Lyra hair from Alice Project that you can get for free by slapping their midnight mania board. There’s no group join required so this beautifully feathered style is just a click away. If colored hair is not to your taste the Lyra hair comes with a hud mishmash of fifteen different colors and I hope you find one that fits you perfectly. I did!

Dragon For a Day

Dragon for a Day

I decided to be a dragon for a day…

My look was actually inspired by the newest FREE group gift from [EvelineInTheBox]. The group is FREE to join and then you can pick up this amazing little black dress called Talena. It comes in all the standard sizes as well as Maitreya and TMP. I warn you, it’s really really short… but I LOVE the styling and details and the swirly black sequins. They are to die for… or to dragon for😉

I snagged a set of dragon wings for only 69L at Astralia. They have an in-store gacha that is FAB FAB FAB!!! The Khaleesi dragon wings are high detail and include a hud that lets you change the color of the claws on the wings. YUM! For 69L a spin, these are a deal!

I finished my look off with the FREE Summer Fun Gift hair for yesterday/today at Alice Project called Oona. It is scheduled to be changed out around 2 or 3pm SLT today and there will be a new FREE gift hair out at that time. Then this one will be only available to group members after that time. If you want to join the Alice Project group, that is a 375L group fee, but right now it is definitely worth it, as you get an extra gift each day in a natural set of colors in addition to the FREE to all gifts that are being set out. For more information on the Alice Project Gifts see my previous post [HERE].

Have a Fabulous day!❤

A Cascade of Magic

Sometimes a little fantasy pick-me-up is just the thing to make your day… and today I felt like making a little magic! I picked up a few things around the grid sure to make any role player’s day a bit more magical, and I’m here to let you in on the magician’s secrets!

Right now if you stop by [EvelineInTheBox], the creator’s February gift is out. It is this lovely Thyri Cascade dress in mesh (all the standard sizes) that is really just fantastic. I love the way the dress curves around my avatar’s body! It is FREE to group member and the group is FREE to join, making this lovely gift a sweet deal!

A Cascade of Magic

Remember that Alice Project is still hosting their Winter Project! Today I stopped by to pick up this hair called Amy in the Winter Shimmer version… which is the VIP members’ gift. This is FREE to VIPs. The group is 750L to join but there are always TONS of amazing offers. There is also a FREE pack out for nonmembers, so it’s still very worth your time to stop by and pick up the giftie even if you are not a VIP member.

My roleplay character Astrid is a fey who does light and magic using staffs… so when I saw this crystal staff at A.D.D.Andel! I fell in love! It is only 50L per spin at the in-store gacha and there are lots of beautiful staffs in the machine. These are even modifiable, so I was able to make mine have a bit of a glow to better fit how I envisioned my character. Love, love, love this!

A Soft Serve of January Indigo

A Soft Serve of January Indigo

The latest group gift at Glitterati for January is a lovely little black dress with a twist! It has detailing around the neckline, cuffs, and hem with buttons too that all have a retro feel with their yellow and white swirly-style pattern! It comes in all the standard sizes as well as fitmesh, Belleza fit, and Maitreya fit… so you’re sure to find YOUR fit!

This cute little retro-feel number is yours FREE with your group tag and the group is only 100L for membership. There are LOTS of past group gifts to pick up that are just as nice, so it’s well worth the small fee to join this group!

My fabulous hairdo is called Indigo and is an offer for Alice Project VIP members. The price to join the VIP group is 750L, but it gains you access to a huge number of gifts and goodies and special offers. (Such as this hair I’m wearing today). If you hurry down to Alice Project today, you can pick up this particular hair as part of the Winter Project.

Don’t fret though, if the price tag is too steep. As Love showed you in her post HERE, there is a gift each day until February 14th for non-members too and those are totally FREE! So either way, everyone wins!

I’m including a picture of the hair/color options from the vendor advertisement below just as Love did, to give you a quick reminder of what you get FREE and what you get with the group membership. Remember, if you miss a day, don’t fret! You can pick up the missed days for just 50L!

A little trick-or-treating with Skel-Calle, at Havenhollow.


Did I scare you? I’m sorry if I did. Honestly, I am just trying to un-scare myself, and what better way to do that then to scare all of you Fabbies. You see, I decided to go trick-or-treating early, and ended up falling through a trap door in the woods, into a maze-like dungeon that I barely escaped, only to stumble out into a graveyard…where it was raining! I know right. The things you go through to get a little candy, but they told me the house giving away the biggest chocolate bar was in there. Luckily for me, and for you bargain lovers, I had put my costume together with a great freebie, and cheapie, and looked great while all of this was going on.


First of all, I know you are eyeing up my cute dress and tights. Those of you familiar with G Field, know that every Halloween, there is always a fun outfit put out as a free gift, and my skeleton bib dress and matching tights are what you can get this year. The dress is mesh, in the standard sizes, and also comes with flat chested versions. The tights are on system layers, as well as having an applier hud included for SLink and Maitreya. If you are in the G Field subscribo group, you probably already have this in your inventory, however, if you aren’t, or your IM’s capped (like mine did) you can head over to the store, and there is a nice little display with this gift, for free, for everyone, as well as past Halloween outfits, also still free.


Wanting to add a little more red to my almost monotone costume, I lucked out while wandering around the The Nightmare Event, when I found the Alice Project’s booth. They have gory Halloween versions of  5 of their  hairs. For a small L$50, you will get a limited 5 colour pack of your choice of these now blood-soaked Halloween Massacre versions. I went with the sweet ponitailed Kumi, totally turned creepy with the blood. If blood is not what you are looking for, they do have the nice clean versions of all of the same hairs there for you too, set at their usual price. But come on…how can you say no to blood soaked hair in October! LOL.


Now, I did mention that before my scary ordeal,  I had started out trick-or-treating. The cute candy bucket I am holding, as well as the handy flashlight, are both free gifts from this years Havenhollow set up. It’s a fun little neighbourhood for kids and adults of all ages where you can go door to door and if you are lucky, the kind residents will give you candy, and this year, it is actually hosted on an LEA sim, which is Linden Endowment for the Arts (hooray for that). Just beware of the cute, costumed, little girl by the entrance to the woods, she is the one to give you the flashlight so you can venture into the darkness, and then you know what happens…trap door, dungeon…yeah…scare fest! As this is an all ages sim, the candy bucket and flashlight both come in multiple sizes, so they should fit most hands. This build only sticks around for the Halloween season, and then it will be gone for another year. So set your windlight to region default, turn up your sounds, and explore!


OK, I think I have managed to come down from my scare, the candy from trick-or-treating has helped, I won’t lie. LOL. So that is it for me for now, but you know I will be back, I can’t stay away from all of you…or the great freebies and deals. So, until the next time, TTFN!

PS: I just wanted to personally say, thank you to all of the FabFree family who made it known that they wanted FabFree to stick around by showing all of us so much love. I love being able to share the fun of bargain hunting with all of you, and was so excited when the decision was made to keep the FabFree blog open. Here’s to many more years of freebies and deals in SL!

The Draw to Enchantment

“Do you hear the call of the waves below?
Or the way the fishes move in the flow?
To Sea! To Sea! The Seagulls do caw.
From somewhere she answers…
She answers their call.
Can you see the foam layered on sand?
Or feel the way it creeps up your hand?
Her curls shine…Shine bright in the sun.
She smiles and dances…
She dances for fun.
She’s ready to share her treasure with you.
Though you’ll need to find it.
Before the others do.”
[Poem courtesy of the Enchantment Hunt]

The Draw of Enchantment [1]

I’ll be honest… I’m not one for hunts. (I’m one of those people who has a terrible time finding where I last left my glasses in real life, let alone finding a hunt item in SL!) But this Hunt drew me in the minute I saw the amazing line up of designers and the gorgeous gifts, and I knew I had to share it with you! Especially as every one of these hunt gifts are FREE. Just find the little purple shell, click it, and viola! You’ve found your prize!

The theme of the Enchantment Hunt is little mermaid. I found you a simply amazing mesh tail for only 50L at The Muses that works great with the mesh Maitreya Lara body (which is what I have) as well as system bodies (you can see the tail in the picture above.) The Muses sells their tail in two styles — Ianthe or Ondine and you can get either style in an amazing array of colors from either their Marketplace store or their in-world store. I admit to grabbing mine from the Marketplace simply for the convenience.

The shot above is also a great view of half of the gift you’ll find if you stop by .aisling. as you swim through this great hunt. Their gift composed of two parts: a pose and a prop. The picture above gives you a clear shot of the pose… the siren or mermaid reaching out to draw in her prey… the picture below gives you a good picture of the second half of .aisling’s. gift — a stunning dagger with an intricately detailed hilt for you to hold.

The Draw of Enchantment [2]

The Hunt includes 23 amazing stops — far too many for me to showcase in one post. But I tried to hit several to give you an idea of just how amazing these gifts really are. This skin by Lumae called Adore – Eione // Anemone (notice the amazing details with the scales on the skin?!) came with every applier imaginable, as well as different color brow options and was also part of the Hunt.

My tiara is an Enchantment Hunt gift courtesy of PurpleMoon Creations and when I stumbled upon it, I fell in love — not just with the detailing and style but with the thoughtfulness of the creator who added a color-change hud! There are 12 gem color options and 5 metal options!

My mesh pearls and sexy star seashell modesty breast covers are an Enchantment Hunt gift from [Glitzz] and just as generous as the other gifts as they included an easy to use resize script that made them easy to fit to my avatar’s shape. I loved that I did not have to modify my avatar to fit these items, but instead I could modify these items to fit my avatar.

Last but not least — it’s not a hunt item, but I found a fabulous gift from you from Alice Project! They have put out a promo on the marketplace as a FREE gift for customers called Summertime Sadness in a special set of Mini Medley colors. I chose this lovely pastel pink to complete my look, but there were lots of great colors on the hud. And as always, this mesh style from Alice project is just breathtaking!

Silver Fey

Hello again FabFree folks! It’s official… I am totally addicted to Gachas. Sad, but true. SO when I saw a ‘new to me’ gacha event I grabbed my Lindens and hurried over.


The “Oh My Gacha” event is full of all kinds of tempting machines to play but I fell in love with these Dragonfly wings from Sn@tch and knew I needed to build a fairy outfit around them. The wings are just 35L per play so I stocked up.  Then I found the “Jocelyn” hair from Alice Project, one of my ‘go to’ hair designers. And at 75L per play I was ready to go wild with sixteen different packs to win.  Cila is finishing off my fairy day with the ‘Doris – Lace Princess’ corselets and skirts for 75L per play. These are Fitmesh so you don’t have to play only your size but be sure to pick up the Alpha set at the machine for free.

Oh My Gacha is a great event with a ton of machines to play. Decore, pets and quite a few unisex and men’s items can all be found there. But hurry… it only runs till July 31st!  Your taxi to – OMG- Oh My Gacha

Catching up with SL F&O

Hello again my dears! I know all of you guys who already knew about (and love) Second Life Frees and Offers must be laughing at me for my new found enthusiasm. What a great group! I’ve been running around collecting the fantastic gifts all day. Happily, many of the designers leave their gifts out for longer than a week so some of my picks here are actually the last round’s finds. First up is a ‘new to me’ designer:  Precious Designs

This is the “Come with me” dress. I love the flirty flippy skirt and the print is just wonderful. Precious Designs has a bunch of SL F&O gifts and group gifts out at their main store. Everything I saw was just a pretty and well made as this cute little dress. You can also see Lumae’s SL F&O gift here: the Alaska Skin in Mulled wine. The beautiful skin comes in two colors: Honey and Cocoa. The Alaska Skin is one of the December SL F&O gifts I was talking about. So if you want it, be sure to hurry over to Lumae.


The “High Tied’ boots and the “Leila” hair are the big stars of this next look. The boots come from Like Design and I love them. I like that they are a silvery black or charcoal rather than just a solid black. It really sets them apart. These too are a December gift still available at the main store.
My wild hair is the real show stopper. “Leila” is a limited edition color pack made for the A&A Anniversary by Alice Project. The pack has five colors. Each color has the same blue and pink locks with different colored ‘roots’. The root colors are black, brown, blonde, and natural red as well as the white.

So put your SL F&O tag on, my dears and head out. 🙂

Updated to add – I’m really sorry, guys but the High Tied boots are no longer the SL F&O gift for Like Designs. They have an new ( and equally awesome ) pair of shoes.
