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


Starlette

Starlette

Good Friday evenin’, FabFree! Welcome to the weekend!  Did you ever daydream about being a Hollywood star? Walking the red carpet at some huge blockbuster opening with all the fans and paparazzi? I sometimes did. But my fantasy was always old Golden Age Hollywood. All the musicals and the big names like Ingrid Bergman and Audrey Hepburn.  Now, why am I rambling on about this? Because one of Blackbird Lace’s Group gifts just immediately gave me old Hollywood Starlette vibes!  which meant I had to find my own red carpet and glam it up!

This is the ‘Andreea’ dress from Blackbird Lace and you can pick it up for free as a member of the Group. Plus, the Group is free to join.  If the black and white isn’t to your taste, Andreea comes with a HUD for ten other bright colors. All with the cute polka dots! 

Now I really should get back to my adoring (completely fictional) fans!

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!

No Time

I received very sad news today, FabFree. The Stay at Home Club is closing it’s doors as of September 25. I will be very sorry to see them go. I certainly got used to picking up all the great free gifts. But… all good things come to an end, I suppose.

No Time

I am glad I had time to pick up these great cargo pants from FurtaCor. These are the ‘Owen’ pants and while the Club is still open, you can get them for free. The pants come with a HUD to choose one of fifteen colors and patterns. As with everything I’ve seen from FurtaCor, these are a great build right down to the details. I would suggest, however, that you don’t wait around to grab these before the Stay at Home Club is just a fond memory.

Sizes Included

  • Aesthetic
  • Altamura
  • Signature – Gianni
  • SLink

One quick note, you may see that there is no Belleza Jake size. I have discovered that Altamura fits Jake rather well. Good to know.

Fab Free Designer Friday 2.0 – Kara Baby

Happy Friday Fab Free’rs! I hope everyone is gearing up for a wonderful weekend. For this edition of Fab Free Designer Friday I have the pleasure of introducing or perhaps reintroducing Kara Baby. Kara Baby is a ladies clothing boutique that is ultra feminine and very flirty in style. What’s the saying? “Sugar and spice and everything nice…” that’s what Kara Baby made of! Here you’ll find lots of skirts and dresses, along with shoes, applier clothing, and a little bit of lingerie. I also spied a couple of bento nail sets, so be sure to really look around when shopping at Kara Baby.

There’s a second floor to Kara Baby where you can find some discounted items, and a room full of Slink shoes! Also, almost all the vendors are setup with easy redelivery and gifting abilities that make shopping easy. Before I forget, I want to mention that you can pick up several of the Omega Relay systems for your Omega compatible body parts at Kara Baby as well. You’ll find those on the first floor to the right.

Store Group

Kara Baby’s store group is free to join, and there are group gifts and occasional discounts. Group members are also the first to know about sales, hunts, and events Kara Baby is participating in.  At this time there are three free Kara Baby group gifts. One is a pretty purple dress with a vintage floral pattern that comes sized for Maitreya Lara, Slink Physique, Slink Hourglass, eBody Curvy, Altamura, Belleza Isis, Belleza Freya, and Belleza Venus. The second gift is to the right of the information desk up on the wall. You’ll see a cute orange vintage-looking handbag. The third Kara Baby group gift is a pair of shoes on the same wall as the handbag. The shoes are black with a skull and crossbones print and come fitted for Slink, Belleza, and Maitreya feet.

Fab Free Group Gift 

There are also two free Fabulously Free in SL group gifts available at Kara Baby. The most recent is a super cute ruffled skirt and cropped top set with a colorful print. This set is free to all Fab Free group members, and the Fab Free group is always free to join. The second gift is on the opposite wall and is a flirty fox print apron style dress. Both of these free gifts come in the following sizes: Maitreya Lara, Slink Physique, Slink Hourglass, eBody Curvy, Belleza Isis, Belleza Freya, and Belleza Venus.

Other Gifts & Discounts

Kara Baby also has set out a few of their gifts from past events including a free pair of shoes from a past Gacha Life event, a free lingerie set formerly at the The Point event, and a 10 linden devil horns headband gift that was originally at a Mad Circus event. There’s also a set of red white and blue patriotic bento nails for 10 linden that will fit Slink and Maitreya hands. Each of these freebies/cheapies are on the same wall to the right of the information desk.

If you head to the right there are also two free Stay at Home Club gifts at Kara Baby. Both gifts are a dress with quite a few size choices. Next to the Stay at Home Club gifts, there are discounted items for the free-to-join Best Stores and Designers group. Also on the same wall as the Stay at Home Club gifts is a 35L Sunday Sales special dress that is just 35 linden per color. Happy Shopping!


Elegant

Elegant Evening

I love my tee shirts and jeans and beat up old sneakers as much as the next girl. But isn’t it fun to get a little fancy once in a while? I like to be reminded I can be an elegant lady on her way to a lovely evening out with her gentleman. And I found a gorgeous little lace dress that’s perfect for that evening…. plus, it’s free!

Evening Elegance

This is the ‘Sylvana’ dress from NY Designs and it’s one of the several current Group Gifts available. All of the gifts are awesome but the lace and pretty sleeves really called to me today. Sylvana comes with a HUD with six jewel tone choices. I have a feeling this dress will be in my regular rotation or any time I want to be a little extra pretty.

Sizes Included

  • Altamura
  • Belleza
  • eBody
  • Maitreya
  • SLink

Late Night Conversations

Late Night Conversation
Hi hi Fabulous Fab Free’rs! We are right at the end of the week and I know I’m not the only one who could use some r and r, or rest and relaxation. The most recent group gift set by LsR is perfect for a little lounging. Additionally, Xxxtaci has a flaming cool pair of group gift glasses to help you look cool no matter what you have planned.

Get Some Camo – This pale pink camo sports bra and panties/shorts set is free to all LsR group members. This free group gift includes the top and bottoms in several mesh sizes. The waist band, and the band around the bottom of the top (not sure what you call that, hmm) both read “Sexy Girl Sport” repeated all the way around. The fabric has a knitted look too it also, which is what made me think of this set as being extra comfy to lounge around in. To get yours you’ll need to head over to LsR and join the free-to-join group. There are several group gifts available.

Sizes Included: Altamura, Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Isis, Freya)

Flame Glasses – Okay maybe these glasses don’t exactly go with the outfit, but they are so cute on that I don’t even care. They have a rose gold colored partial frame, and the cool flame shaped cuts on the side of these “cat-eye” shaped glasses make them irresistible. They are also equipped with resize scripts. If you’re going to wear glasses, they may as well look awesome. That said, it also helps these glasses are a current free group gift at Xxxtaci. The Xxxtaci group also happens to be free to join! One quick note, the vendor for these glasses does require you to pay one linden, however the 1 linden will be instantly refunded.

Tropical Summer Days

La Isla Bonita
Welcome back to the blog Fab Free’rs! Don’t mind Pru’s expression, she has resting b!$&# face. I’m really quite happy with the fabulous finds I have to share with you. I hope you like them too. For today I have 3 goodies, this summer hat and hairstyle from Pink Hustler, the gorgeous tattoo from This is Wrong, and this fun sundress from Continuum.

The Hair & Hat – A good hat hairstyle is sometimes hard to find in Second Life. This one had me at hello. It’s one of quite a few group gifts available at Pink Hustler. The gift comes with an “Essentials” color hud that also has some pretty pastel options. Additionally there’s a few color options for the hat. The Pink Hustler group has a steep one time join fee of 500 linden. I do however thing the abundance of gifts make the fee worth while.

The Tattoo – This colorful tattoo reminds me of fractals and stained glass. I think I’ll be wearing it often! It is a free Lucky Letter board prize at This is Wrong. No group is needed to participate. There are 4 Lucky Letter boards at This is Wrong. Two have female tattoos with appliers for female bodies, and two have male tattoos with appliers for male bodies. This tattoo comes in several appliers with the option of regular and a faded version.
Appliers Included: Maiterya/Belleza, Slink, TMP

The Sundress – The bright yellow and teal sundress Pru has on is the most recent Fabulously Free in SL group gift from Continuum. It comes in a few mesh sizes and is free to all Fab Free group members, just wear your Fab Free group tag, pay the vendor 1 linden, your gift will be delivered, and you’ll be refunded your 1 linden. If you’re not a Fab Free group member, the Fab Free group is free to join.  Also, included with this cute little sundress is an alpha layer, so it is suitable for classic non-mesh avatars.
Sizes Included: Fitted Mesh, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Altamura, eBody
