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


I Gacha Good

I Gacha Good
Gachas.  You love them or you hate them.  Or you have a love hate relationship with them, that leans rather often towards the love, but then veers off in the hate direction rather abruptly so that you stomp off in frustration in your 6 inch heels while muttering to yourself about evil machines.  It’s not like I’m speaking from experience, I swear!

But My Fave!

I’ve said it once, I’ll say it again – Amitomo is a gacha that I never regret playing, and I rarely miss playing one of their new releases.  They consistently put out cute, well-constructed and wildly affordable gachas that never leave me with that gacha player’s remorse.  Their latest set is out at Kustom9 and is just 69L per pull.  You’ll totally walk away with something you can wear, as usual with their offerings.  I played 4 times and managed to get this shirt, the skirt (sized for Maitreya bodies) the cute bubble gum and even the little butterfly belt.  Not bad!  Also, often if I don’t win one of the items I really need in my life, I’ll nip into Marketplace and search for the gacha, and once you sift through the super overpriced ones, you can find some good deals.  It pays to look on MP!

This round of Kustom9 is running until August 10th!

Good Luck!

The Pink Side of Life

The Pink Side of Life
I often talk about the two sides within me that are constantly battling for supremacy.  I’ve come to the realization that perhaps these two parts: the pink and the black (as I like to call them), aren’t really battling for supremacy, but are just taking their turns to shine.  I’m all about having several personalities that will allow me to be different people when I need to be.  Today little miss Pink has taken over, and she’s all about bubble gum, lollipops and unicorns.

Pink AF

There are new lucky board prizes at Seniha!  I love love love me some Seniha, since their stuff is always so well constructed and fundamentally fun.  The night I was waiting for my letter to be called (which as you all know can sometimes be a tedious affair) I actually had a fantastic time with some of the girls who were waiting their turn too.  We joked and we laughed, and that made the time pass much faster.  So shoutout to you girls!  Thanks for making me smile!  Anywhos, I won the Tainy dress and choker which comes in this pretty pink colour in two different versions (this animal print and a plain pink).  The Seniha group is free to join, and there are plenty of group gifts, and loads of lucky letters.  Gotta love it!

Eat the Darn Cake

Eat the Cake

Sometimes you just need to let go and eat the cake. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it. Definitely not afraid of a little indulgence, I happily gave in to my sweet-tooth and picked up this delicious looking cake at Cinoe. Secondly, while this sweater isn’t the same sort of indulgence, it feels like a splurge of the same kind of self gratification. It’s a recent group gift at Sentinus. I’ll let you know how to get your hands on both of these fabulous group gifts for free below.

Cinoe

This lovely little three-tier chocolate cake with fruit topping is a free group gift at Cinoe. The Cinoe group is free to join, and you can pick this sweet freebie up in the group notices or at the Cinoe main location. The cake is a decor/display item. It does not include any poses or animations. If you head to Cinoe and click the gift vendor while wearing your Cinoe group tag, you’ll get a folder with this chocolate cake gift and several other previous group gifts for free.

Cinoe Group: secondlife:///app/group/451c34ba-29f6-ba62-53bf-5e15f6634649/about

Sentinus

I’ll admit for a split second I thought to myself “Do I really need another sweater?” when I saw this free group gift at Sentinus, and I quickly put that thought out of my mind. No one needs that sort of negative self-talk. Of course I need another sweater, especially one as cute as this one! I really do like the fit of this sweater, and it has a ton of color/texture options making it a must-have. The Sentinus group is free to join also, so honestly, why not add another sweater to your wardrobe?!

Sizes Included: Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), TMP, Maitreya Lara, Standard Mesh (xxs – L)

A Return to Darkness

A Return to Darkness

Back in my early days of Second Life-ing, I was straight up a goth girl.   Probably because it’s the complete antithesis of who I really am, and it was fun to explore all the deep, darkness of it all.  I know I’ve blathered about this before, about being who you want to be in SL, etc.  But what I do want to touch upon is how FabFree made me realise that I didn’t have to have just one style.  When I started blogging here back in 2017, I realised that there were so many different freebies hanging around the grid that I could play around with, and since that moment I haven’t really looked back – I just get what I like!  But it is nice to revisit old friends, isn’t it?

The Deep Dark

I’m getting that Morgan le Fay feeling today (you know, when she’s an antagonist), and bubbling up some magical devilry in the depths of the earth.  To get this look, I need look no further than the Vanity Event.  They’ve got a bunch of gifts peppered around at different stalls, and they’re all free.  You don’t even need to join a group here, just click on the boxes and bags, and they’re yours.  I got this gorgeous gown over at the TOG display.  It comes in both black and white versions, and also has a pair of shoes included (not pictured).  Who doesn’t need a good gown?

Don’t Mess With Space Bunny

Don't Mess With Space Bunny

This intrepid space girl is celebrating Boxing day in the heavens!  I headed off to the nearest space port in order to celebrate the second day of Christmas.  While I was there, a passing Interstellar Gronkula (aka those creepy little alien dudes who have a tendency to be a bit forward…) made my ire bubble up, so out came the zappy guns!  With my hair floating in the wind, I made sure he knew not to mess with this space bunny again!

Love it!

I’m letting my imagination run away with me a bit again, but I think that’s acceptable.  I’ve got news from the land of Love!  They currently have this pretty and flowing hairstyle (in a full fatpack of colours) out for all and sundry to be bought for just 0L.  Mmmhmm!  So good!  Also, while I was there I saw that their group is currently free to join until the new year, and they’ve got a nice wall of lovely gifts.  I picked up the Risky Dress and Boots that put me in the mood to head to outer space.  There are 15 different colours to choose from in the HUD, which makes this dress super versatile.  How awesome is that?

It’s a Tiara Kind of Day

It's a Tiara Kind of Day

Some days a gal just wants to put on a long dress, stick a crown on top and call it a day.  #MOOD

She’s a Lybra!

There are two new lovely dresses over at Lybra for members of their free-to-join group.  It comes in two different colour palettes, so you may just fall in love with one or the other, or both!  Join the group, click on the vendor, and it’s yours!  I’ve included the vendor photo below so you can see both options!

LYBRA | GROUP GIFT

Put a Crown on it

I always love a cute tiara, and Romazin are listening to all my deepest wishes by giving out this pretty one as their latest group gift.  It’s quite delicate and is also sorta Halloween-y with its spiderweb-like filigree work.  It comes with an HUD to let you change to three different metal options, and 10 different jewel colours!  It will totally make your inner princess very happy.  Join their group for free and grab it, as well as all the other lovely group gifts too.

Should I twirl now?  I feel a twirl coming on…

Your Friendly Neighborhood Vampire

Friendly Neighborhood Monster

“When other little girls wanted to be ballet dancers, I kind of wanted to be a vampire.”

– Angelina Jolie

Hello Fab Free! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. Mine was pretty great, I feel refreshed and ready to take on the weekly grind. As for this post I have some Spookzilla finds, and a few October group gifts to share. First, I’m slightly obsessed with bats, which made these lounge shorts and matching top by 1 Hundred absolutely irresistible. I also picked up some pretty must-have makeup group gifts at Purple Beauty, and ghoulish confection group gift from Palette.

1 Hundred at Spookzilla

1 Hundred has 8 total hunt prizes at the Spookzilla event. You’ll need to hunt down the little ghosts from 1 Hundred hidden around the Spookzilla sim. I picked up the “Night Wing” shirt and the matching “Night Wing” shorts for just 10 linden each. The top says “moonlight” across the front and has a purple bat on the back. The shorts have a high slit on either side.

Sizes Included: Belleza Freya. Slink Hourglass, Maitreya Lara, MeshBody Legacy

Purple Beauty

I’m a sucker for good makeup, BOM layers, appliers, I’ll wear them both. For me makeup is just a fun form of self expression. Purple Beauty has two beautiful group gifts available. One is a BOM layer eyeshadow set, and the other is a glittery gloss set in a Catwa HD applier. The colors in both sets are vibrant and beautiful on. The Purple Beauty group has a join fee of just 50 linden.

🌸 NEW GROUP GIFT

Palette

This “Vampire Milkshake” group gift at Palette manages to be gory and cute. It also ties in nicely with my very relatable Angelina Jolie quote at the top of the post. This ghoulish beverage comes with a bento hold pose for the right or left, and a display version. The cup says “Happy Halloween” with little bats, also I love the little bat chocolates on the top! You’ll need to join the “Leggy Mainstore Official” group which is the store group for Palette to claim this gift. The group has a join fee of just 10 linden.

Creeper

There’s something mystical and magical about a cemetery from my perspective. Perhaps it’s the palpable stillness, and the haunting quiet. Whatever it is, to me cemeteries feel like the kind of place where anything could happen. The often elegantly carved statues, headstones, and grave markers with their memorial inscriptions give a cemetery an almost romantic ambiance. My macabre fancies aside, I am excited to share some fabulous finds from Paper.Sparrow and Asura with you!
Paper.Sparrow
Did you know that Paper.Sparrow is participating in Spookzilla this year?! What’s Spookzilla you ask? Why a spook-tacular hunt with with prizes from tons of designers from all over the grid. Paper.Sparrow has 9 gifts hidden in the cutest little green ghost. Each gift is just 25 linden, all you have to do is find them! My witchy ruffled dress and batty earrings are both 25 linden prizes by Paper.Sparrow on the Spookzilla hunt. I’ve included a copy of the Paper.Sparrow hunt key below so you can peep all the creepy cute prizes.
Dress Sizes Included:  Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Isis, Venus, Freya)

Spookzilla 2020

Asura

My creepy kawaii look would be far from complete without a few of the group gifts from Asura. I love the colors in this tattoo by Asura. It comes in BOM layers and appliers. It also happens to be a free group gift at Asura. Another of the Asura group gifts is this ultra kawaii choker. The little stars are what makes this one for me. The “Counting Stars” choker group gift has resize scripts, and has a color change hud with tons of options for customizing the look so it can go with anything. Asura has a one time join fee of 99 linden.

A Bunch of Hocus Pocus

“My darling girl when are you going to realize that being normal is not necessarily a virtue? It rather denotes a lack of courage.” – Aunt Francis, Practical Magic

Welcome back to the blog Fab Free! I am loving some of the October group gifts I’ve come across recently. It’s always thrilling to find freebies that I feel match my personal style when I wear them. For this post I found just that in the free October group gifts from Eternal Limited, POUT!, and Belleposes.

Eternal Limited

I love the playfully witchy print of this dress by Eternal Limited. I was so excited to find this cute dress is their free group gift for October. The group is also free to join.

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

POUT!

This time of year also gives the opportunity to wear some creative and beautiful makeup looks. I love the bold colors and the stitch detail of this eye makeup by POUT!. It is also a free group gift for the month of October. The POUT! group is free to join.

Appliers/Layers Included: Catwa BOM Layers, Genus BOM Layers, Catwa Applier, Genus Applier, Lelutka Evo Applier

Lastly, it just wouldn’t be October in Second Life without some spooky poses for taking all the fun Halloween photos. The October (from 2018, but still available) group gift at Belleposes is a fun set of 3 witchy poses. Belleposes is free to join as well.
