The FabFree Annual Free(ish) Hair Roundup – Part 1

Yay!  FabFree!  IT’S TIME!

Time for what, you ask?  Well… it’s time for our annual Free(ish) hair round up!  If you’ve not seen one of our hair posts before, strap in and get yourself a beverage because we pulled out all the stops this year to bring you NOT JUST ONE, but two posts of free, group gift, and dollarbie hair that you can get right now.  This year we’ve got over 200 hairstyles in this post alone, with just as many (if not more) coming tomorrow.  Yeah.  I know.  It’s a doozy.

Please be sure to thank the FabFree bloggers for their hard work in collecting, photographing, and documenting each hairstyle so that you have a comprehensive guide to free and affordable hair around the grid.  They deserve your kudos because they jumped on this project with wild abandon.

Shameless plug here, but as you well know – FabFree bloggers are not paid for their services.  However, if ever you feel like donating and showing your appreciation, make your way over to the FabFree Info Hub and drop a few coins in the piggy banks.  We do appreciate it.  We also super love comments on our posts!

Whimsical Sunday Stroll

Snapshot_028

Hey faboo gang!

It’s a rainy day here in my real life world, a day to crank up those fairy lights and delve into some fun second life fashion!

I love to find designers who are *not* on the big designer list and introduce them to everyone.  There are a helluva lot of good designers out there that you never hear about and who don’t even get a chance because they are overshadowed by those designers you *do* hear about every day!  I like to share these “mom and pop” designers, the small businesses of the grid to show them some support.

This time around I have found a cute place called It’s Me.  They have some freebies and dollarbies, but my eye caught this outfit which was still only 29L, I love the funky pattern on the overalls. It also comes with cute sneakers to match (not shown). This cute set which has both the top and the pants fits:

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

My pose is another cute 75L Nextup find from Le Poppycock.  I love that you wear the props and they pose you, so you have nothing to rez.  This pose comes with both the tree and the dove, as well as the pose, of course.

I Need a Pig Here!

Modern Wonderland

Hey gang!

This outfit reminded me of a modern sort of Red Queen from Alice in Wonderland.  See how she sits surveying her royal domain?  Wouldn’t you like to play Red Queen too (Off with their heads!!!)?  I’m here to tell you how!  Just put your feet up on your pig, call in your fat boys, grab a dwink and lets go!

The Sexy Red and Black Dress

I found this dress at a shop called Mia Styles.  It is a free group gift and the group is free to join.  It fits:

  • Lara
  • Freya
  • Slink

Remember, You Can Tune a Piano But…

Now the pose and the piano come from Le Poppycock, where a lot of us have been stalking lately, because she literally has a room of Next Up machines to play with more cute and fun poses than you can shake a stick at! (pictures herself standing in the room shaking a stick at the machines but finally giving up)  The machines are all 75L or less a play (this one is 75L) and one of my very favorite things about these poses is that you can use them anywhere, because you wear the prop and it poses you, so you do not have to rez them! (does happy dance!)  So am I wearing the piano or is the piano wearing me?  One of life’s great mysteries my friends, but whichever way, it works like a charm!

Did you eat my tarts???

Market Finds for the Girls *and* the Guys!

market 1_022

Hey gang,

So, I was inspired by my partner Cray’s ability to find dealios on marketplace and I went and found myself something to match!  Proving that there are cute things to be found on market for *everyone*.

For the guys, Cray found this awesome 10L outfit by ALB.  He’s rather conservative style wise (unlike me  lol), so I was very impressed by the colorful scarf which really spoke to my bohemian sense of style.  It’s a full outfit (pants, shirt, jacket, scarf) and fits:

  • FitMesh
  • Classic
  • Belleza Jake
  • Slink Male
  • Gamit Ocacin
  • Signature Gianni
  • Adin Bento
  • Onupup)

Now my punk-ish outfit, which I love, is on market for only 50L by Misako, it too is a full outfit (suspender pants, sweatshirt and hat).  The sweatshirt comes with a HUD giving you several choices of 80’s films (I chose Indy!) and the pants come in blue and black as well.  This outfit fits:

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

Anyhoo, there is so much going on in the grid right now, so let me wrap this up and grab more stuff to show you.

A Walk in the Secret Garden

Mooh at Secret Garden

Hey gang!

Far be it from me to pass up a trip to a place filled with Next Up machines.  Especially when they are loaded with irresistible cuteness.  So yes, I’ve been recently obsessed with the Secret Garden this month.

Case in Point, Mooh.

You can collect up an entire outfit in these, all mix and match, and each one adorbs in the Mooh machines at The Secret Garden.  I’ve got the entire key below, but they’ve gotcha covered right from your head (headphones!) down to your toes (shoes!).  At only 50L a play, I had a blast trying for the colors I wanted!  All the parts are especially made for Maitreya.

Such cuteness, am I right?  This is just the tip of the iceberg over there, so go have a stroll around and grab yourself a cute Mooh ensemble and shop all the machines (and then come back and check them randomly til what you want comes up.  I may or may not have been doing that!  *wink wink*).

A Valentine’s Hunt

Ayashi has some great things going on right now. One of those things is a free hunt. I found some new free hairstyles on this hunt which made me pleased! I am wearing one of the hunt prizes, which I tinted using a tint hud. You need to join the free group to do the hunt, but note that there are no hints. You are looking for a little light pink valentines box with polka dots on it. Check the signs near the front of the store to see what the hunt object looks like. Inside the box is 5 free hairstyles. Go ASAP to do this hunt because it may be ending soon! It’s not clear when, but it may be gone as early as today.

See you soon, FabFree!

Holiday Cheer

Coming Soon

Hey FabFree! Come have a cup of delicious holiday cheer and a whack tonne of freebies from Meander/Me!

All things free at Meander/Me

Meander/Me is having a little celebration that includes tonne of freebies.

First of all, there’s the Frosted event. This event took place at the Meander/Me store. Each day between December 15th and 23th, a new item was released for sale between the cost of 0L and 99L. There are a bunch of cute items on the wall still up from the event. My cute glasses with the Reindeer nose and pretty earrings are both free gifts on their Frosted event. Make sure you grab the other freebies on the event wall and there’s also a couple of free gifts waiting for you under the tree at Meander/Me!

In addition to this great little event, the Meander/Me store is currently free to join. They have a huge wall of group gifts and I grabbed them all up! This group normally costs 250L to join so it’s worth getting into. The gifts are so pretty!

A Cup of Cheer

My adorable little holiday mug is the latest free group gift at Ayashi! I am still in the Christmas spirit, and that mean loads of sugary holiday drinks. This gift is a free group gift, and you will find it in the room behind the front counter in the store.

Enjoy, FabFree!
