FabFree – Fabulously Free in SL

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


Hit The Dab

Hit The DabHello out there. Hopefully you, like me, are lazing your way through the week between Christmas and New Years’. Time spent however you want it to be, sometimes industrious and other times downright wasteful. And of course spent on favorite hobbies too, like sniffing out freebies and deals!

Dollar Pie

Pink Cream Pie is mentioned time and time again here on FabFree, because the group is awesome and loaded with perks. But what if you’re not in the group? Well, then this is the post for you, my friend. Pink Cream Pie has a dozen or so really nice items out there on SL Marketplace for only 1L each! I was a little bit conflicted about which one to actually show you but I mean come on, a hoodie of a dabbing unicorn with a sombrero and maraca? There really was no other choice. You can find it on the marketplace here, and you can see all of the 1L items excluding demos here. The hoodie comes in sizes for Freya, Legacy, and Maitreya and is a linden very well spent.

One more note on these marketplace dollarbies – from some light inventory searching most of these items appear to not be past group gifts, so people who are in the group will want to check it out as well. Dollar pie for everyone!

Free Skinnery

I’m rounding out my look with the latest free group gift skin from The Skinnery. It’s part of the illustrious Holiday Special event, which I’ve named “Lelutka & Friends” in my head. Whatever you call it, you can read the details here when Aline first broke the news on FabFree and it’s definitely one not to missed.

The Skinnery‘s free gift is this lovely Eve skin in a long list of skin tones, with brow and no brow versions of each. To get it you’ll need to join The Skinnery group, which is currently free to join. This is a paid group that I assume will go back to having a fee when the event ends after December 30th. You’ll find a whole bunch of other free group gifts in the store as well and in my opinion the group is worth staying to see what others are added.

Twin Cats

Two Cats

Hey FabFree! I have a new feline friend and we decided to go out on a spooky walk together.

To start off, I am showing a few more free gifts from the Halloween Shop & Hop, including:

  • Free eyeshadow from Pout!, which comes in BOM layers for Lelutka EvoX heads. Several colour options are included and they are stunning, as is to be expected from Pout!
  • A free HD lipstick applier from Purple for Lelutka EvoX heads. Several colour options are included.
  • Free mesh spiders that sit so perfectly on your legs from Seance. These are just fantastic! Be careful if you are scared of spiders, as these creep right up on your legs. You do need to join the free Seance group to get this gift, but the gift is in their Halloween Shop & Hop booth.

Two Cats II

  • My striking eyes are the latest group gift from lovelysweet. They come in a darks and lights pack, and they fit all Lelutka Heads, Omega, and BOM.
  • My hairstyle is only 1L from FAGA on the Marketplace. I made the dreaded mistake of leaving the FAGA group when I should have stayed in it, so I was happy that I could pick up this beautiful hairstyle gift for only 1 linden on the MP. I love when that happens. The Mini hairstyle includes an exclusive colour hud of several different colour options.

Two Cats III

  • Lastly, my new cat is the latest free group gift at SEmotion & Libellune. This is an animesh companion, and there are only 8 more days left to get it. It’s so cute!

Have fun, FabFree!

Where We Belong

Where We BelongTime for a bikini break! Who’s ready for a beach day? You know I am! And how cute is this suit?!

Sweet Suit

I got my sexy and ruffly bathing suit from C.Y Fashion. The group is free to join and then there are some 1L gifts for the group. One of them is a set of fun Halloween themed dresses but shhhhh we’re not talking about that right now, it’s beach day! Another of them is this bikini. It’ll cost you 1L and even a penny pincher like me didn’t hesitate. Aly comes in a few plain and stripey colors and in sizes for:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Tonic Curvy
  • Tonic Fine

Pretty Poses

I think you’ve seen Overlow poses here on fabfree before, but I feel like I haven’t seen the freebies mentioned lately. Overlow is available on the marketplace and there are a bunch of packs there for free! They’re really cute, casual, easy to use poses. Love a good pose. Almost as much as I love a beach. It’s a close race. ❤

Learning to Fly

100922 - Learning to Fly - 01

Learning to drive is a stressful time for teens and their family. I can imagine that learning to fly is no better, but I guess I’ll never know! For today’s post I imagined that I was attempting to learn to fly a broom, as a newly discovered witch, but I was having a difficult time of it and my friend was making fun of me…you can see my reaction to that in the next photo below.

  • This month Evil Bunny Productions is hosting their monthly themed hunt and it is called “Boo! Bunny Hunt 12” for October. Catherine Cloud of Princess Stuff has some fun gifts in the event. It includes the very broom I’m trying to learn to fly on as well as the cat ears and tail. The hunt object is only L$1 to get these goodies!

100922 - Learning to Fly - 02

As you must already know, because of all the awesome blog posts my fellow FabFree bloggers have been putting out, Linden Labs is celebrating Halloween with a Shop & Hop! So I had to add to the list of things you need by showing this adorably spooky set from Lilleth Mills. This is the Cursed outfit and it is the free gift at the Halloween Shop & Hop. It includes the top and panties, and the back of the panties have the same print as the top has. This outfit fits:

  • Kupra
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Reborn
  • Reborn Juicy

Ok Fabbies, get out there and grab all these goodies before they’re scared away!

Until next time!

Fall Musings

Coming Soon

Can I Go Back?

Ah, September… the month of new beginnings and a new school year is almost upon us. It’s the first day back to school over here where I live! Sometimes I wish I could just go back to school and re-live my college years. Sure, school sucks sometimes and it’s a lot of hard work… but I loved walking around the University quad with a coffee in hand, venturing off to my next lecture and absorbing my mind in the world of higher education. In all honesty, I didn’t have many responsibilities back then besides dedicating myself to learning more about the world. I just loved learning, reading, and discussing ideas, so being in College/University was one of the best times in my life!

…Fast Forward to November

I am an odd one for wanting to go back to school, huh? Well, I am also a bit strange when it comes to my opinions about the seasons of the year. Despite loving the summer months and the time I get off every year, I have a stronger fondness for the Fall. Once September starts, everything becomes a blur with how crazy school and work always becomes! I am sure you can relate. However, I just love fall; it always makes me feel warm inside. Bring on pumpkin season! I am definitely one of those people who waits for pumpkin-spice lattes and Halloween in August. This sweater and skirt outfit I have on in the photo below reminds me of the month of November because it has poppies on it and it looks warm and comfy. This is my type of clothing style! I always prefer fall and winter clothes in both RL and SL, and I simply love this outfit for its fall vibes.

Coming Soon

Get to the point, Caroline!

Well, this has been a fun and poetic exploration of my views about life, higher learning, and the seasons. Now I have two amazing outfits, poses and shoes to show you in my post today, so let’s look at what I found to bring in the fall season!

Two Lovely Limited-Time Outfits

Ari-Pari is the clothing store I am featuring today, and they are currently in the middle of renovating their store. You will find the two gifts shown in my post today at the Ari-Pari Temporary Location, which is right HERE. Ariana was so kind that she left out a group gift and a hunt prize from last August a wee bit longer for us, so that no one would miss out. The two lovely outfits shown in my post today are available for a limited period of time at the Ari-Pari Temporary Location, a skybox that will be open until mid-September. They are only available for another week or two, so I suggest everyone go now to get them before these great gifts disappear for good.

First, the school uniform shown in the first picture is a 1L promo at the Ari- Pari Temporary Location.  The outfit includes a hud with 10 colour options to change the colour of the skirt and necktie. The base of this school uniform outfit is white. This dollarbie promo was a hunt prize for last month’s Back to School Hunt (which has now ended), but Ari-Pari is keeping this little gem out to grab for a couple more weeks into September due to the store closure in August. Now it only costs 1L and no hunting is required- just look for the PROMO sign and pay the vendor 1L to get the outfit for cheap!

Sizes Included (School Uniform)

  • Lara
  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Hourglass

Secondly, the pretty poppy-patterned sweater and black skirt with a belt shown in the second photo is the August group gift for group members of the Ari-Pari group. This gift is available for a limited-time. Go get it at the Ari-Pari Temporary Location while it’s still available! Note that there is a group join fee of 25L, but new limited-time monthly group gifts are regularly released for Ari-Pari group members. This outfit includes a colour-change hud for the sweater and the belt, which you can change to 4 different colour and pattern options. The black skirt can be worn with gold or silver metal belt options. 

Sizes Included (Poppy Outfit)

  • Freya
  • Lara
  • Hourglass

The Ari-Pari Temporary Location will be open until mid- September, and I expect these gifts will no longer be available after it closes so go ASAP to get these limited-time promos and gifts! There will be even more group gifts and goodies coming out later when the main store re-opens after renovations, so stay tuned for the upcoming store re-opening!

Two 5L deals from Pacagaia

I have a few more fab deals to share that make up the rest of my look in my welcome-to-fall post today.

  • The poses, coffee, and cell phone shown in both photos come from a great set of bento poses, which costs only 5L from Pacagaia on the Marketplace.
  • The great shoes are another item that only costs 5L from Pacagaia on the Marketplace. These shoes fit Belleza, Maitreya and Slink feet. These are a full fatpack, which includes a hud to change the colours of the shoe (the top and the base) to 25 different textures. They are fantastic! Shout out to FabFree reader Aurora for showing me these – I just love ’em. 🙂

Enjoy, FabFree!

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!

Black, Shine & Bows

Black, Lace & Bows

.Absence.

I absolutely love the store .Absence.! I discovered them for the first time recently, and they have some great stuff. I am showing two great deals from them today.

  • The sparkling dress costs only 1L on the Marketplace. It comes with a HUD that lets you change the dress to bright blue, bright pink, bright purple, black, and white. It is sized for Reborn, Legacy, and Perky only.
  • The adorable leg garters are a free group gift at .Absence. Just join their free group and click the gift box at their main store and it’s yours. It includes a colour change hud that allows you to change the garters and bows to 5 classic colours. These garters work with the soft thighs addon sized for Maitreya, Legacy, Reborn, and Kupra.

Have fun, FabFree!

Caroline’s Rantings

Coming Soon

Hey FabFree! In my typical style… I started off this post planning to show just one gift, but then went down a rabbit hole and found three more to show. Now it’s time to rant, rave and share as fast as I can so you have time to collect the goodies.

A Free EEP

I decided to blog something unique today! I applied a bright sky EEP to my photograph today, and it is free for all at Moon. You will find it to the left of the desk in a white box. No group is required for this gift! I used zero editing in my photo today, so this is the look of the bright sky this EEP will give you. You just click “apply only to myself” from the item in your inventory and it will apply the bright sky to your world as you play.

An Anniversary Gift from Dernier

To celebrate their 1 year anniversary, Dernier has 500L of free store credits out. This is great news for me, as I had some credit saved from last Christmas. I had enough to purchase a fatpack of skins, called “Hannah”. Note that the cost of 1 fatpack of skins is more than 500L, but you can use the credit to buy many other items in the store as well if you don’t want to pay extra. You need to join the free Dernier group to get the credits, and they have a few free group gifts as well. I am not sure when this credit disappears, so go ASAP.

Sizes Included (skin)

  • Lelutka EvoX

Dollarbie Shoes!

My great heels are a fatpack of shoes from Le’la. I got these on the Marketplace for only 1 Linden. I love the style of these!

Sizes Included

  • Maitreya
  • Belleza

Alias

Last but not least, my cute hairstyle is a group gift at Nova, which is free to join. You will find many other hairstyles for free there, which you can grab with their free group. They are all are made with smooth and lovely alpha textures. The gift includes a basic colour hud, a style hud and a tint hud.

Enjoy these generous gifts!

Hey faboo guys n gals!  (gals n guys??),

Back again with a very sweet Fab Free group gift from one of my favorites Zoom!  I’ve been setting up a space station for my newest home (isn’t it fun how you can change houses in second life??) and took a break for some shopping and that’s when I saw this.  I love the artsy-ish short with the simple skirt, it just strikes a lovely balance, don’t you think?  It comes with a HUD allowing you to choose from four matching colors (for top and skirt) and it fits:

  • Freya
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

Just wear your Fab Free tag and click the board, if you need to join, the group is free to join, always, so no worries there!  Gift is free and group is free.  You can’t beat that with a stick!

Now, if you *really* wanna splurge, my hair is from Arata and it is only 1L.  No group needed!  There are actually several cute 1L gifts up on the wall there.  😉  So that’s that, you can get this entire outfit and hair for a whopping 1L!  Does Fab Free bring it, or what?  We got yer’ backs!
