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


Be My Frankenstein

Be My Frankenstein Hello Fab Free’rs! It’s good to be back from a long weekend away. I’m super excited to finally be able to share this look with you! Can you believe we’ve got just 6 days until Halloween? Do you have your costume ready? I still have no idea how I’ll dress up. The main reason I can’t decide on something is because there are so many cool costume ideas. I am however leaning toward a pin-up style Bride of Frankenstein thanks to these FREE and inexpensive items from Clawtooth, Stix, and Vero Modero.

Starting with this iconic hairstyle from Clawtooth, it doesn’t get much more “Bride of Frankenstein” than this! The “Bride of Frankie” hair is on sale at Clawtooth for just 25 lindens. It’s also a fatpack, so you can change it up a little if you want to put your own twist on the look and go with a hair color other than black. I also found I was able to match a Catwa hairbase (part of the Catwa head features) really well to this frighteningly fun hairstyle by Clawtooth. Don’t miss out on this limited time offer!

Stix put out a group gift this month as well. This FREE gift is a pretty set of fall/Halloween lip appliers. Included in the set are 3 lip colors, the green and black version shown, a solid smi-gloss looking black, and a pretty baby pink shade. All three shades come in an applier hud for Catwa, Lelutka, Genesis, TMP, and Omega compatible heads, as well as classic system layers. You’ll find this lovely gift for FREE on the group gift wall at Stix. It’s to the right as you enter the shop. The “PixyStix” group is FREE to join. You’ll also find a few lucky letter boards, and several previous gifts still available, just don’t forget to wear your group tag!

The finishing touch is another FREE group gift, this one from Vero Modero. I have seen various versions of this blood drippy necklace a lot of places in real life and I was so excited to see it as a group gift in second life. This fun choker is unisex, the resize scripts allow it to be sized to fit any avatar. The Vero Modero group is FREE to join, making this fun gift FREE as well. All you need is group space.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Tis Kustom

Tis Kustom Hello Fab Free’rs, I hope you’ve all been having a wonderful week! I’m doing pretty well myself, especially after indulging in a little retail therapy at the current round of Kustom 9. This round of Kustom 9 is an anniversary round. Can you believe Kustom 9 has turned 3? In it’s relatively short time in Second Life, Kustom 9 has become one of the events I personally enjoy the most. I like the fact that it has remained a smaller event while still bringing in quality designers, at least in my opinion. In celebration of this anniversary, most if not all the participating vendors have put out a 9 linden gift. I picked up several, and the ones shown here are just a handful that I thought went well together.

This cute shoulder-length hairstyle is the K9 gift from MINA. I am always a sucker for heavy blunt bangs! I also like the swept back look of the style. I think it appears as though it could be tied back, but it floats over the shoulders and ends in a sort of feathery natural looking edge. The hair includes a color change hud of pretty “light brown” variations, and a version with and one without materials enabled.

Next, Essences also placed out a pretty variation on their Sophia skin as their K9 gift. This lovely face with the lilac lips is a Catwa head applier only. The gift applier is in the Essences medium01 tone with dark brows, and costs just 9 lindens like all the gifts at Kustom 9. I think the subtle makeup on this Catwa head applier by Essences is great for everyday wear. I also believe would look just as nice with casual clothing as it would with formal attire.

Fab Free’s own Kathryn commented on the photo for this post in Flickr that these eyes were “striking”. I completely agree with her, she always has such nice things to say! The eyes are part of the K9 gift from S0NG. S0NG’s 9 linden gift includes this hazy blue pair of eyes, and an equally strange and beautiful greenish pair. Named the “Bomi” eyes, each pair comes in a  mesh set, as well as a classic system layer.

Finally, this glittery iridescent choker with the little heart is from Pumpkin and I’m crushing on it big time! lol The mesh collar/choker has such a fun vibe, and it made me think of all the fun plastic jewelry I would have worn in my teens. Needless to say there was an instant feeling of slight nostalgia which is always a good thing in my book. The glittery heart choker has resize scripts built in for easy fitting, and is seriously cute on, especially for just 9 lindens.

Here are the details, I hope you like this small sample of the Anniversary gifts at Kustom 9.

Electric Love

Electric Love Hello again Fab Free’rs, I’m happy to be here, thanks for coming by and checking out the blog today! I’ve got some exciting things to share with you. As I’m sure you’ve noticed by now, we have started involving Second Life’s wonderful designers again and part of that involvement has meant some generous Fab Free exclusive group gifts. One such gift is this two piece skirt and sweater outfit from Pretty Kitty Design. Though the outfit is cute enough on its own, I added the most recent gift from Nar Mattaru. I’m a sucker for cute Halloween stuff, and this fun Halloween themed face tattoo was just too cute to resist.

Starting with the outfit from Pretty Kitty Design, there’s so much to tell you about I’m almost not sure where to begin! The top and skirt come in standard mesh sizes, as well as fitted sizes for specific mesh bodies. Each piece can be worn separately or together for the complete look. Now here’s where it gets even more interesting. The outfit includes a unique color change system called ARCTIC Tech that is exclusive to Pretty Kitty Design. What is ARCTIC you ask? It’s a hud driven color change system. This system has the ability to continually cycle through a spectrum of colors at random or allow you to choose a specific color that will not shift until you change it. If you’re having trouble visualizing what I’ve described, I understand! You can see a working demo at the Pretty Kitty Design main store. It really is cool to watch as the colors in the clothing shift. The ARCTIC Tech color change system changes the “colored” parts of the outfit only, the black materials will remain black. This FREE Fab Free group gift from Pretty Kitty Design is available to all Fab Free group members, just wear your tag. If you’re not a member yet, don’t worry the Fab Free group is always FREE to join.

Next up, as I mentioned above, I found the group gift from Nar Mattaru too cute to resist! This gift is an applier for Catwa heads only. In the applier you’ll find several small under-eye tattoo options that include images such as this cute little bat under Pru’s eye. There are 8 total goth/Halloween themed images in the applier. To change the color of your tattoo, which is white when applied, you’ll need to use the main hud included with your Catwa head. Within the Catwa hud, you have the option of manually adjusting the cheek makeup color, this will let you change the color of your tattoo to anything you choose. The Nar Mattaru group has a one time join fee of 149 lindens. You’ll find this cute Halloween themed gift available along with a previous gift behind the counter at the Nar Mattaru main store.

I hope you enjoy these fun gifts! Here are the details.

Sugar Doll

Sugar Doll Hello hello Fab Free’rs! I’m not sure if I am excited or a little disappointed that the month is already half over and Halloween is a mere 2 weeks away. I genuinely enjoy this time of year, and I hate to see it fly by so quickly. That said, all the more reason to enjoy every minute that remains! Little Bones, Letis Tattoo, and Petite Mort have all set out gorgeous FREE group gifts recently. Without a shadow of doubt these gifts are among my favorite of the October gifts I’ve come across thus far. I’m sure you’ll enjoy them as much as I do.
Sugar Doll 2 Starting from top to bottom, this pretty strait hairstyle is the most recent group gift at Little Bones. The Dion hair at Little Bones is a full fatpack of hair colors, and has some unique features. This simple yet elegant style also includes a hud that allows you to change the way the hair lays. You can set the style to be over both shoulders, over one shoulder on either side, or behind both shoulders. Additionally the hud is scripted with additional animations that make your avatar appear to be touching or playing with his or her hair. It really is well done and a fun playful addition. The Little Bones group carries a one time join fee of 100 lindens.

Next up, the whimsical sugar skull style face-paint is a recent group gift from Letis Tattoo. This FREE group gift includes a classic system layer, an Omega applier, and a Catwa applier for the sugar skull face with 3 color options. Aside from the obvious artistry and imagination of the sugar skull face, I love the culture and legend behind the imagery.  Not to mention this sort of face can be worn with any sort of outfit and not betray the spirit of Dia De Los Muertos. To get this FREE gift, head over to Letis and join the FREE-to-join in world group and pick up your FREE gift.

My personal favorite part of this look saved for last, this beautiful dress is the October group gift at Petite Mort. There isn’t anything about this dark elegant dress that I don’t like. The skirt has a look of stars peeking through clouds in the night, and even the bodice has a faint delicate pattern. Once again I find myself using the word whimsical to describe the gifts in this post. The gift is FREE to all Petite Mort group members. The group has a one time join fee of 75 lindens. This dress alone is well worth the join fee in my opinion. The gift comes in standard mesh sizes, as well as a fit for Slink Physique, Slink Hourglass, and Maitreya Lara.

I genuinely hope you like this Sugar Doll look as much as I do.

The Wicked Witch of the South

The Wicked Witch of The South Hello There Fab Free’rs, thanks for coming by. It’s my favorite month of the year, and I decided to get a little witch-y with my style because why not?! When else can you get away with an over-sized witch hat as an accessory? In all honesty, the moment I put on this October subscriber group gift from BYRNE, I knew I wanted to wear a hat with it. I didn’t plan on a witch hat at first, but I’m quite pleased with the way things came together. Speaking of October group gifts, these adorable heels are the current group gift at Empire.  And of course I found an inexpensive lipstick by Stellar, that I couldn’t live without. I hope you like this spin on a classic witch look as much as I do!
Wicked Witch of The South Starting with the gift from BYRNE, my photos really do not do this mid-length dress justice. There are little details like the high neck, the full sleeves, and the buttons up the front that give the dress an elegant vintage feel. This group gift from BYRNE comes in the rust color shown and a blue color, both in several standard mesh sizes. Also included with this Fabulous FREE gift are a matching pair of goggles for each dress which are not shown in the photos. To add this lovely dress to your wardrobe, you’ll need to join the BYRNE Style group in world, and check the past notices. The group is FREE to join, and you’ll find a men’s gift as well!

I don’t think I could have picked a more darling pair of strapped heels to go with this dress. These lovely shoes are the October group gift at Empire. This gift is generous as always in that it includes shoes to fit Maitreya, Slink, TMP, and Belleza mesh feet. Also included is a color change hud that allows you to change each individual part of the shoes, from straps and buckles to sole. These shoes are FREE to all group members, simply join the Empire VIP group and wear your tag. The Empire VIP group has a one time join fee of 499 linden.

Finally, I cannot resist the final touch of a glittery nude lipstick from Stellar. This dollarbie applier gives a subtle shine and tint that is quite pretty and perfect for everyday wear. A fun Marketplace find by Stellar, the lip-color works with Lelutka mesh heads, Omega compatible heads, and includes a classic system layer for non-mesh avatars. Once again, I love the slight change makeup layers allow.

I genuinely hope you enjoy this look as much as I do! Here are the details.

You Were Always on My Mind

Always Thinking Hello hello Fab Free’rs! I’m excited to share with you an almost complete look that I think is not only fantastically cute, but Fabulously inexpensive. I’m really pleased with how this look came together. I love the colors, and I think it’s a cute casual look for the cooler weather. Not to mention there’s something essential about a hoodie for the fall.

Cynful Clothing Co. recently switched out the items in their lucky boards. If you’ve never been to Cynful, the store has several group only lucky boards all with quality women’s clothing. The mustard yellow hoodie Pru has on is one of the several FREE lucky board prizes to be had at Cynful. It’s fully mesh and comes with an optional zipper attachment for added detail, as well as a color change hud to adjust the color of the inner shirt, the hood strings, and the zipper attachment. The hoodie is technically a dress, and it is long enough to be worn without pants.
Thinking AlwaysWhen I first put this hoodie dress on, I knew I wanted to wear leggings and boots with it. It gives the look of a comfortable casual outfit while still being stylish. These applier leggings are a Marketplace dollarbie by Offline. I couldn’t ask for the colors in these patterned leggings to match more perfectly with the hoodie, and I really like the sort of bohemian feel the leggings give the complete look. In the package you’ll find a classic system layer, an Omega applier, a Belleza applier, and an “All in One” applier with options for Lena, Phat Azz, Wowmeh, Banned, Ghetto Booty, and Banned.

For a final touch I added this pretty purple nail polish by Hello Dave. Sometimes I like my manicure to very obviously match my outfit, and other times I like it to stand out a little. This pretty shade of deep purple compliments the mustard yellow in the outfit very well. You’ll find this FREE manicure/pedicure in one of the 3 FREE Fabulously Free in SL group gifts at Hello Dave. As previously shown here, this lovely color is part of the palate of sold polish colors. The nail applier hud works with omega compatible  and Slink hands. To get these specific freebies at Hello Dave, you’ll want to wear you Fabulously Free in SL group tag.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Sinister to Sultry

Sinister to Sultry Sometimes all you need is a little makeup and a change in eye-color to change your look in a dramatic way. Using eyes by S0NG that I picked up at the Crossroads event, and makeup from the 50 Shades of Catwa Hunt happening at Indulge Temptation, I was able to take Pru’s look from slightly sinister to sultry. Pru’s wearing the same head, hair, and base skin in both photos.

In my opinion eyes from S0NG almost always have an otherworldly look to them. The Nyx eyes gacha by S0NG at the Crossroads event is no exception. These eyes have that signature glassy look S0NG is known for, and come in a huge variety of colors that range from natural to unnatural and everything in between. These sparkling eyes are available for just 55 lindens per play at the Crossroads event. Included with each pair of eyes is a mesh set of eyes, a matching alpha, and a system layer set.

The dramatic eye shadow and intensely colored lipsticks are just a few of the 50 total Catwa makeup appliers you can hunt down during the Indulge Temptation 50 Shades of Catwa Hunt. The item you’ll be hunting for is a little Catwa logo. Each hunt prize is 5 lindens and includes a single shade of lipstick or eye shadow. There are no groups to join, just head over to Indulge Temptation and enjoy the hunt!

Here are the details, Happy Hunting!

Whispering Secrets

Sharing Secrets Hello Fab Free’rs, thanks for stopping by! Today’s post is something fun and playful, at least I think so. Sanarae is celebrating an anniversary, and the shoppers are benefiting. Almost every vendor has a FREE gift to all Sanarae group members. While there are a ton of lovely gifts, the gift from Pixicat happens to be my personal favorite. Additionally I came across the cutest gacha by Katatonik. This adorably creepy pet makes for the perfect little friend to whisper all your secrets to.
A New Friend It’s no secret I’m excited about the month of October being so near. There’s a meme floating around the Internet that says something about it being Halloween Season rather than Football Season. I definitely agree with that sentiment. The Sanarae gift from Pixicat is this cute little short sleeved bat print top with the orange leather skirt. The top and skirt can be worn separately as well as together. This FREE gift comes in standard mesh sizes, as well as a few body specific sizes. There isn’t anything I don’t love about this cute outfit. It’s perfect for Halloween Season! All you need to do to get this amazing gift is join the Sanarae group. The group is FREE to join.

Now let’s talk about the octopus kitty floating over Pru’s shoulder. This half octopus half kitty follower pet is just the right mix of cute and creepy. This gacha creature by Katatonik is equipped with resize scripts so you can make her just about whatever size you like. Once you’re  happy with her, the touch menu will also allow you to remove the scripts. There are several versions of the Tendril Kitty from Katatonik at Sanarae, and at 50 lindens per play, it was a gacha I just couldn’t pass up. I may even need to go back to Sanarae and collect a few of the others, they are just that cute! lol

Falling Stars

Falling Stars Hello and Happy Hump Day Fab Free! I have a quick post for you today featuring FREE jewelry from Graffitiwear and a dollarbie manicure by Sparkle Bunny. So let’s get right to it. I really like this jewelry set from Graffitiwear, especially the idea of falling stars. There are so many happy things my mind associates with falling stars that I couldn’t help wanting this set. I also think the jewelry looks very unique. To get this FREE necklace and earring set from Graffitiwear all you need to do is join their subscriber group. This manicure from Sparkle Bunny is such a perfect match with the jewelry set that I couldn’t pass it up. I found this shiny black polish with dark gold stars on the Marketplace for just 1 linden. This dollarbie by Sparkle Bunny is a Maitreya nail applier only, and it will allow you to apply a manicure and a pedicure.

Fall Feelings

Fall Feeling Hello there Fab Free’rs! Can you believe it’s almost October!? I’m so ready for all things fall I can barely contain my excitement. Needless to say when I saw this incredibly girly coat from Vintage Touch, I had to share it with you. The coat is the current group gift at Vintage Touch and it comes in standard mesh sizes and one fitmesh. I love the style and the pattern of this coat/dress. The rose pattern reminds me of vintage English Tea Rose patterns that always catch my eye. The gift also comes with some stockings in a classic system layer, and an Omega applier that I did not show. I chose to throw on a pair of jeans and boots to wear the gift as a coat rather than a dress. To add this pretty coat to your own wardrobe, you’ll need to join the Vintage Touch in-world group. The Vintage Touch group is 1 linden to join.
Fall Feeling Close To go along with my fancy new coat, I picked up this pretty pink crystal necklace from Imbue. There are several group gifts available at Imbue, this simple yet pretty necklace is the most recent. Like tea roses, I’m kind of a sucker for crystals. The necklace comes in a rigged and unrigged mesh version, and you have the option of either a gold or silver pendant. Both are strung on a thin black cord. To get this gift at Imbue, simply join their updates group in world. There is a one time fee of 50 lindens, however the gifts currently available are worth the fee.
