Frosty Fun

Frosty Fun

Cue the sleigh bells again, I’m about to do Christmassy things in the woods!  I don’t know what that entails, but most likely some sitting around fires, some caroling and some airing of grievances.  Wait, that last one is for Festivus.  Either way, let’s get to it!

Sweater Weather

Alright!  It’s time to get toasty, a lot Christmassy, and yet stay a bit punk while we’re at it.  Asteroidbox has an awesome freebie under the tree – this ripped and awesome sweater!  I am pretty obsessed with how the holes give it an air of “I don’t care one bit”.  There’s an HUD that has a red option as well.  Best of all, it’s completely free – no need to join a group!  Even better, there’s one there for the guys too!  Yay!

Go West

West End are spoiling their group members!  Under their Christmas Tree, you’ll find about 12 awesome gifts, each containing a very generous gift.  There are poses, clothing, accessories and all sorts – some of which also have male versions so the gents aren’t forgotten here either.  I’m showing off the candy cane nail polish (Maitreya appliers in the box and an HUD with several different candy cane stripe colours), as well as the frosted shake which will keep me on a sugar high all night.  To get these lovely gifts, just join the West End group for free, and click on the presents!

Meet me in the woods!

Yule Review

Yule Review

Good evening, FabFree. I know I rather don’t look like myself this evening but I had to take advantage of the remarkable new free mesh head available at Bespoke. I don’t often get the pleasure of seeing such high quality accessories coming around for the men of Second Life so I grasped this opportunity with some excitement.

This is the “Yule – Elf” head from Bespoke as I said and you can pick it up for free along with four different colored skins at the mainstore. The head comes with two shapes, one male and one female. Both are very well made as are the skins. Yule also includes:
• BoM Head/Body skin “Wood”
• Rigged eyes, eyelashes, mouth
• 6 eye colors
• AO HUD
• Eyebrow Tattoos (BoM)

I can honestly say I like this head and the shape that comes with it. The shape is not simply a handsome human with pointy ears. The shape and proportions of both head and body are very ‘other’. That said, the head responds fully to the slider system and can be made into your preferred shape easily. I left the shape untouched except for two things. I did make the head to body ratio slightly larger and I made the hands slightly smaller.  Simply personal preference, I would consider this head and shape ready to use ‘right out of the box’.

I did encounter a few minor issues. I felt the eyes did not fit inside the sockets well. They clipped a bit at the corners. However this could easily be changed or tweeked. It didn’t help that I wasn’t 100% happy with the colors of eyes offered but that is purely a personal preference and no bad mark against Bespoke. The other issue I had was the AO. The AO runs through a menu that I felt was a bit clunky. The animations were well done but a bit inconvenient to access. All said, I would not consider any of this a reason to not get this head and enjoy it’s use.

I want to say something about the skins both included and the four extra skins available. These are simply some of the best skins I have encountered in Second Life. They are truly astonishing. The details are both subtle and gorgeous. Even if you decide not to use them with the Yule head they are a stunning addition to your wardrobe.
Yule 2
I am uncertain as to how long the Yule head and the skins will be available but it is described as a “Season’s Gift”. If you would like to get this excellent elfin head and skins don’t delay.

Gasp! Two FREE Heads from LeLutka!

Gasp! Two FREE Heads from LeLutka!

What’s the big news today, FabFree?  Two brand spankin’ new and completely FREE mesh heads!  Let’s dive into the info!

LeLutka Strikes Again!

Last year, we were all blown away by the generosity of the LeLutka team when they put out two mesh heads for members of their free to join group.  Well, it looks like lightning DOES strike twice, because here we go again with two more new and utterly free Lelutka Evo X heads!  One for females, and one for males!  I’m modeling the Kaya, which comes complete with all the bells and whistles, most of which I have no idea how to work (yet).  But, she’s very pretty, and I had fun with her Elvish ears, turning myself into a bit of a Space Babe.  I dunno, just go with it.  Sadly, I couldn’t wrangle a male posing partner quite yet to show off the new head for the gentlemen, but I will add a photo below so you can see it.

There are three locations you can go to grab these gifts.

Location 1
Location 2
Location 3

You’ll need the free Lelutka group to get your gift, which you can join by pasting this code into chat:

secondlife:///app/group/b4820d07-1543-6d56-e6bd-ab848903ee9b/about

But…there’s more…

Several other stores are participating in the gift extravaganza, and they’ve all put out matching goodies to go with these heads.  Here’s the list of places to visit!

– Heaux – Bold and Beauty – RAWR – Glam Affair – Cazimi – Top1Salon – Stray Dog – JackSpoon –
– Not Found – VELOUR – Lara Hurley – VOBE – Clef de Peau – DeeTaleZ – Lilo Shapes – Nuve – Mila –
– Avi-Glam –

You’ve got until December 24 to pick these amazing gifts up! (You’ll also find a special Christmas surprise in the box)

Happy head hunting!

Love & Zombies

Love & Zombies

Creepy season is clearly upon us, but what’s a cute zombie hunter to do when she’s in need of some romance?  Well, you get dolled up, head to the most romantic clearing in the post-apocalyptic forest you can find, swipe on some red lipstick and hope the man (or woman) of your dreams saunters by and ignores the blood stains.  Or, contrarily, they’re impressed by the blood stains because clearly you’re a survivor of all the madness.  Once you put down your weapons long enough to suss out if you’re compatible, you’ll totally be ready for some canoodling!

Dating Tips from the Dark

Now that I’ve sufficiently rambled, it’s time to tell you about where I got this dark and yet rather appealing outfit!  AsteroidBox have put on a little creepy hunt in honour of Halloween coming!  It’s lots of fun, with little notecard clues in each gift – plus everything is completely free, no need to join a group.  Just find the bloody knives on the sim and you’re good to go!  I got my top, pants, boots and cane there, but there are also gifts for the guys so they’re not left out of the fun either!  You’ve got until the 1st of November to get your creep on!

Wasted beats

Wasted beats

Lions sit in solemn lines
Drinking gin and dropping lines

Wasting beats in this heart of mine

~ “Sinners” by Barns Courtney

Good afternoon, FabFree readers. Today I am happy to wish the amazing L’Homme eMagazine a very happy 7th anniversary. If you haven’t become aware of this publication, I urge you to discover it. The photography is beyond compare and always inspires. If you want to keep up with the cutting edge men’s designers… this is the place for you.

Each issue includes new completely free gifts for the members of the free readers group. In fact, over the next few days, I will be showing a few of the best gifts here on our blog. The first and certainly one of the best gifts available is the “Theo Suit” from AsteroidBox. I can’t thank this designer enough for the spectacular gift. The suit is marvelously styled with a modern edge. The faint print of the skeleton bones on the fabric gives it an almost menacing look while being so sleek. Yes, I guess you can say I like this suit!

To join the L’Homme group simply click the sign above any of the gifts and join up for free. Then help yourself to an array of gifts fit for the discerning gentleman.

Inner Strength

Inner Strength

Check these little noodle arms out y’all!  My personal inner strength doesn’t come from the size of my muscles, but instead the depth of my ability to pull through when things get rough.  You know, it doesn’t hurt to have an awesome outfit though, does it?

Hark!  A Vagrant!

There’s a brand new group gift over at Vagrant!  This cute top comes with a bunch of different customizing options in the HUD.  Lots of cute looks to choose from, that range from pop art to flamingos!  You’re sure to find something you like.  I also grabbed this embellished wristband while I was there and I thought it kinda made my fake tough girl persona shine through.  The Vagrant group is free to join, and you’ll find a bunch of free goodies at the landing point!

Multifaceted Purple

Multifaceted Purple

Something has always pleased me about the colour purple.  It’s like it can go from rock & roll to shabby chic in a way that many other colours cannot.  I think it’s equally at home in growling lightning as it is in lavender fields, which kind of really represents a bit of my own self.  I’m just a bit of everything, I guess!

Happy Birthday!

It’s AsteroidBox’s Fifth Birthday, and that calls for some celebration of all things dark and moody.  AsteroidBox has always been one of my faves, so I’m quite pleased to wish them all the best.  There are two gifts out on the counter there at the moment- one is this cute t-shirt and skirt combo (that comes with an extensive HUD to change the skirt colour, as well as the lightning colour on the shirt), the second is the little crystal necklace too.   The outfit is free for members of the AsteroidBox group (which is 75L to join) and the necklace is free for everyone!  There’s also a rumour of another gift for group members being released today, so do check it out!

Sweet but Psycho

Sweet but Psycho

Oh hello there Fab Free’rs! Welcome back to the blog. I’m not plotting anything sweetly sinister, I swear. I am however happy to share a few more of the Kustom 9 event gifts with you. My long-sleeved top and this doughnut clad knife are both free at Kustom 9. You will need to join the free-to-join Kustom 9 group and wear the group tag to claim your free gifts.

AsteriodBox

I love the look of this top by AsteroidBox. The thin stripes, slightly pointed sleeves, and leather straps give it a lot of style. There’s also a well done oval cut-out in the back of the shirt for some added detail. This top is free at Kustom 9, just wear the Kustom 9 group tag.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara/Petite, Slink Hourglass/Petite, MeshBody Legacy/Perky, Belleza Freya

Zenith

This could-be threatening knife stacked with doughnuts and tied with a sweet bow is free at Kustom 9. It’s made by Zenith and has a hold pose that can be turned off or on by touch menu. It also has a hud with a few options to color the doughnuts, and the ribbon.

Respite

The world seems to be going a bit mad these days, doesn’t it?  If you’ve had enough of toilet paper hoarding, or people fighting each other for the last bottle of hand sanitizer, then the only thing I can recommend is to head into SL.  No social distancing required in the virtual world!  Plus, you can look super cute with today’s hottest group gifts!

Tell me the Truth

The newest group gift from Truth has come!  The very lovely Vivid hair comes in a full fatpack of colours and several different styling options.  To get this beautiful hair, just join the Truth group for 350L and check in group notices for your own copy.

Face the Music

Asteroidbox also have a new group gift over at their mainstore, and it’s this intriguing face tattoo.  At first I thought I couldn’t make it work, but when you put it on, you’ll discover that it’s actually quite wearable and delicate, with three different versions included.  It comes with an Omega applier and is BOM ready.  To get it, just join the Asteroidbox group for 75L and find the group gift area behind the main counter of the store.  There are loads of other gifts for you to grab there too!

Who Run the World?

Who Run the World?

Eleganza Extravaganza

Oh hunny, how gorgeous is this dress?  It is perfect for celebrating all things fab and female.  The floor-length gown is the newest group gift over at Belle Epoque, and is sized for Maitreya bodies.  Its purple hue and distinctive pleats will have you turning heads in any ballroom you walk into.  Or you know, any park you decide to sashay through on the way to that ballroom!  To get it, just join the Belle Epoque group for 10L and this baby is all yours.  There’s also a 50L sale going on there, with several pieces all in purple discounted for you.

A Hairy Situation

I was over at Moon the other day slapping their Midnight Mania board, when I just happened to peek behind the counter at the group gifts.  Looks like there have been a few updates since I last looked, and I managed to pick up a few new hairdos with my 99L group join.  I’ve got “Zoloft” on and I love the sharp edges of this long bob.  Super cute.  Grab all the hair while you’re there!  It’s most certainly worth it!

Happy Women’s Day!
