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


A Holo Space

Lost in Space

Now for something completely different…

Like Aline, I am loving this holographic trend that is happening.  I love sci fi and it always makes me feel a bit like I am in the future someplace.  A future with no covid, no disease or sickness, no wars, cultural acceptance… You get the picture.  I’m an idealist.  This is how my brain works.

Get the Look!

Now how to match that sci fi look with makeup?  It’s easy peasy when you visit the sl marketplace!  The lipstick is UA Lips Gift and it is free on marketplace!  It has all appliers so this works for everyone!  On my eyes I used MOCK makeup, bluey rainbow and that was only 40L on market!

My outer space backdrop in from marketplace (and it comes with a cool pose which I didn’t use here.) by Small.fry and that is free as well.

Everything you need to be a sexy space mamma (did I just say that??) is in the credits below.  Now go out and be fabulously spacey!

Foxy Lady

Foxy Lady

Welcome back to the blog Fab Free’rs. For this post I’ve got some January group gifts to share with you that have me feelin’ foxy. Maai and MINIMAL both have free group gifts for the month of January that you will not want to miss. Keep reading for the details and more of my banter.

Maai 

Yes, that little fox pun was absolutely intended. I do think there’s sometimes a stigma around being an adult and wearing cutely patterned or styled clothing. I however don’t particularly care for them. I love the little fox faces on this slip of a dress from Maai. Truth be told when I put this dress on I got that Jimi Hendrix song stuck in my mind. “…And you know, you’re a sweet little lovemaker, Foxy…”

The Maai group is free to join, making this group gift completely free as well. All you need is a group space.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara/Petite, Kupra, MeshBody Legacy/Perky, Alpha Layer also included

JANUARY GROUP GIFT

MINIMAL

I’ve picked up several of the MINIMAL group gifts in the past, but I think this January group gift backdrop is my favorite. It has such a feeling to it that I’m not sure how to describe. It’s simple enough to serve as a setting for just about any sort of scene, and has the right feel for something modern romantic or old-world fantasy.

The MINIMAL group has a join fee of 250 linden, and there are past group gifts available as well as this January 2021 group gift.

Fierce Love

Photo Credits: Left photo by Prudence Rexroth / Right photo by BlueGreyEyeGentleman

Under the cloak of darkness, among the wisps and fireflies such a moment exists when love conquers all, even for fearsome Drow. The realm of the Dark Elves has taken over the Twisted Hunt this fall. Will you be able to brave this difficult journey and seek the hunt prizes through decoys and without hints to their location?

The fall Twisted Hunt with the Drow theme will end September 30th, with the End Game lasting through October 17th. Don’t wait to embark on this quest for free Dark Elf inspired gifts and prizes. Blue and I both took on the Twisted Hunt, though I admittedly did not complete the full hunt. Thanks to quite a few of the free Twisted hunt prizes, he and I were able to create these striking Dark Elf characters.

Island Life

Island Life

It’s swimsuit season and I’m all for it this year. I wasn’t kidding when I said I have been seriously enjoying some of the island life here in Second Life. That said, I was super excited about Bombshell’s free gift at FaMESHed. This gorgeous bikini comes in this patterned version shown, and a solid version in the same baby blue color. To get yours, you’ll need to join the FaMESHed event group, which is free to join. Then just click the gift box while wearing your group tag. There are a few free gifts at this round of FaMESHed, but this one is my personal favorite. Enjoy!

Shoe-tastic

FabFree Post: Shoe-tastic

My Shoe-tastic Room

So I may have a shoe/clutter problem coming soon! I (like many women out there) love shoes and shopping. Astralia has yet again provided me with cute customizable shoe storage!! Their FREE VIU (Very Important Unicorn) Group Gift is available until the last day of April 2020. So if you haven’t traveled to their shop, pull your butts out of your comfy beds and head there. I’ve been a group member for a very long time and let me say this one thing, “If you like cute light-colored things free this is a group for you to join.”

The best part about this Shoe Rack is that each part has a few color options to accent your closet to your liking. Clicking the fabric, shoes, or boots you will get a pop-up menu to change the color of the section. Perfection! I just adore the color options and look forward to May’s VIU Gift! Remember she changes them monthly, so this is your last call for the VIU April gift.

xoxo
Happy Shopping!

Home Alone

Time Alone

Hi hi hello Fab Free! I sometimes forget about things I have in my inventory. A silver lining to the extra time I have, and so many of us now have, is that I find the things I’d forgotten in my own inventory. Go ahead and laugh, it is comical! I was genuinely excited to find this fun little nail file set by Besom. The files were a past Fifty Linden Friday or some such sale item that I’d purchased and promptly let drown in the abyss of my inventory. Finding them got me wondering if this fun animated item was still available.

I teleported over to Besom and found it right away. The best part? It’s still just 50 linden! Not only that, but there were 3 other previous sale items still available at their sale price waiting just inside the entrance to Besom. Needless to say, the set of fuzzy ears came home with me. Excited about my Besom finds, I remembered Aline telling me that Sass had a new group gift out. My tied top and matching undies are really cute, and not far off from what I prefer to wear when stuck at home alone.

The Besom Nail Files come in a set of 5 or so file boards with a full bento animated hold. The animation even worked with my AO. The set is just 50 linden, no group needed. The ears were just too cute to pass up, there are several ear types including the blue bear ears I am wearing. The full set is also 50 linden also at Besom.

My “quarantine outfit” is the March group gift at Sass. There is a one time join fee of just 10 linden for the Sass group, and there are a few group gifts available. This gift includes the top and panties in the color shown. Long story short, even in Second Life this is how I’m spending my quarantine, safe at home, no pants, delighted by things I’d forgotten I had!

Sizes: Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass, Belleza Freya

Don’t go into the woods alone!

Crystal Lake Reunion

With the impending Friday the 13th fast approaching, I decided to dare myself to spend the night at the famous Crystal Lake Woods. With the strange sounds and fog rolling in early this morning I drank my coffee by the fire. Lucky for me that I left before any wild animals chomped on me, otherwise my amazing personal achievements for being a blogger for FabFree would be ruined alongside my amazing shoes!

Always be prepared!

Thankfully my amazing cargo pants from [SYS] have side pockets which I easily packed a pocket knife for my safety. I was able to snag the brown pair as a gift for L$1 on the marketplace. The color compliments the top (also [SYS]) in tartan and fit perfectly together as a nice set for camping. I was perfectly safe the entire time, I promise, but being exposed out in the woods without any city lights or passersby I felt like I was in a scary movie! So this Friday the 13th make some popcorn, snuggle on the couch and watch a nice horror film with your bestie or lover.

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Belleza Venus

  • Belleza Isis
  • Slink Physique

Fairy Goth Mother

Fairy Goth Mother

Hey there Fab Free’rs! I know it’s been a minute since my last post, 2020 has got me jumping through hoops already. Even so, it’s good to be here. For this post I played the Oubliette gacha machine at Gachaland. It’s just 50 linden per play for this fairy-like goth outfit, and there’s an event exclusive color available. I’ll add a vendor photo below so you can get a look at each of the pieces to the set.

Home for the Holidays

Home for the Holidays

Would it even be Christmas without brightly colored matching Christmas sweaters? I think not. Honestly though, that man of mine is a pretty good sport for agreeing to matching holiday-wear in the first place. We packed up the car and our faithful companion for a road trip to visit relatives during the holidays. The sweaters just so happen to be Merry Christmas Hunt gifts at MystRie. The car full of gifts, the doggo, and pose are all part of a free gift available at Fashiowl. Keep reading for more details, and get all the credits at the very end. Happy Holidays Fab Free!

MystRie

The male and female Merry Christmas Hunt prize at MystRie are hidden separately, and will cost just 1 linden each once you find them. They come in the color shown with several size options, and an alpha layer for Classic avatars. Each gift also includes matching mesh socks. The Merry Christmas Hunt runs from now until December 31st.

Women’s Sizes: Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), eBody, Maitreya Lara, Slink (Hourglass, Physique, Tonic (Curvy, Fine), TMP, Fitmesh + Alpha
Men’s Sizes: Belleza Jake, Slink, Fitmesh + Alpha, TMP, Onupup

Women’s Gift Hint: I like retro, especially the fifties.
Men’s Gift Hint: This Lord doesn’t look like one of Santa’s reindeer.

 

Fashiowl

This pose and prop set by Fashiowl is just the cutest. It has several couples poses, and includes the car full of presents along with the family pet. Even better, this fun set is completely free. There’s no group required, just buy the set for zero linden. Also there are a few other cute pose sets out for free (including the stack of presents on the floor) at Fashiowl, so don’t wait!
