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


Fallen

Fallen

Oh I do love the Halloween hunt season here on the Grid. I am constantly amazed by the talented designers and the awesome clothes and jewelry and items they give us. For…free! I’ve done just enough building on second Life to know that this stuff is NOT easy so I hope you all thank your favorite designers and spend a Linden or two while you hunt.

SO, let’s talk Hunts. I’ve been bopping all over the Grid this week on Fallen gods Prophecy Hunt. Now, you only have until the 31rst to grab the HUD and finish the Hunt but that’s easily done. The Prophecy Hunt is a bit of a different breed of Hunt. First, you collect the Hunt HUD at the Fallen gods Sim. While you’re there, be sure to take a look at the special faire going on there.  Anyway, grab the HUD and teleport to the first store, find the hunt object ( An all – seeing eye) then you teleport to the next store. You don’t get the prize for each store till you complete the entire Hunt. The last teleport takes you to a massive prize room where you can pick and choose which ever free prizes you want or click the central pillar to receive all the prizes at once. Now, I know this sounds odd… but it works. The hunt objects are the fun challenging not the pull your hair out Twisted Hunt challenging. There were a couple of store that were… um… rather difficult. But, in the end, it was worth the frustration.

Having said all that… ya’ll still here… okay… Let’s look at some prizes.

My gorgeous gown is from Secrets of Gaia, this is the Asteria gown and it is stunning. I know my photo is gettin’ kinda artsy so I’m tossing the hunt photo for the prizes so you can see them. But I don’t think the Hunt photo does it justice. This thing is swoon worthy!

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique 

My new jewels are from On a Lark. The ‘Gotland Orb’ s included HUD has 14 choices of jewel color and three metals. I foresee using this one a lot!

Lastly, I have a nifty new toy: The Prophecy Star from Jinx. The Star has it’s own hold animation and it revolves and drifts in a random dance over your hand. It’s really fascinating to watch.

So… go grab your HUD and get hunting. Hmmm the veils of the other world are parting and I forsee ….. you! In the prize room… grabbing your 55 absolutely free fantastic prizes!

The start of October

The start of October

Hey There and Happy October, FabFree! I know I’ve mentioned how much I love Fall before. Now take that and add about a million percent extra happy cause it’s October and that means Halloween is on the way! Halloween is my jam, baby!  LOL and after all that you’d think I was showing a Halloween costume… but I’m not. I know, “Juli is a weirdo”. But we knew that. 🙂

I’m actually talking about one of my favorite free Fall/Halloween Hunts – The Kiyomizu Autumn Hunt!  This hunt takes place in the Kiyomizu shopping ‘mall’ which is dedicated to Asian designers and venders. I don’t read Japanese or Chinese so if I offend anyone, please forgive me. So many of the designers here offer wild, weird and funny stuff. You have to check it out!

Of course, there are also some really lovely things for the Hunt to find. Like… this one piece outfit from M*Motion. This is “Autumn Outfit” and you can get it for free as part of the hunt. This really is one piece so it’s a great quick on and off outfit.  One note, there is a logo on the top for M*Motion. Normally, I don’t like logo items and usually I won’t show them. But this logo is so faded out and light… it doesn’t bother me. But I feel I do need to mention it’s there.

Let's Be Friends

Hello Fabulous Readers!  Ripley and I had such good luck when we checked out the trail of the Dark and Brooding Hunt that we decided to keep searching to see what other Fabulous Finds we could unearth.  Over at The Sissy Bar, we discovered another gorgeous hunt prize for just 1 Linden Dollar.

From the Dark into the Light

This sophisticated, strapless gown will have you ready for an evening on the town.  Its slimming black fabric features a subtle floral texture and a criss cross design to emphasis your waistline.  The full length skirt section drapes to the floor where it flares slightly for ease of movement.  It is simple yet elegant and allows your beauty to take center stage.  With versions for classic as well as multiple mesh body types, there is something for everyone in this dollarbie hunt prize.  All you have to do is locate the collection of pillar candles hidden somewhere in the shop.  In case you get stuck, there is a hint giver in the store on the hunt poster.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layer for classic avatars)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin

  • TMP

Until our next post, happy hunting!

Pour Toujours L’ete

The One

Hello there Fabulouses!  This little birdie told Ripley and I about a free group gift from Pour Toujours.  When we arrived at the shop, we were pleasantly surprised to find not one, but five gifts for various groups on display.  This super sweet crop top is my absolute favorite out of all the goodies on the wall.

Forever Summer

Although we might be saying good bye to the carefree days of summer in real life, in Second Life, you can make your own seasons.  That being said, I was happy to discover a warm weather shirt which is sure to become a wardrobe fave of mine.  The Trexy top features an intricately fringed, cropped hem as well as a neckline that dips daringly low.  Although I opted for a bobbed hairstyle, you might want to wear long locks for extra coverage of the girls in front.  It’s kind of difficult to see in my photo, but this shirt has an asymmetrical style with one slitted, half sleeve on the left and a sleeveless tank style arm on the right, which lends the outfit a funky, free flowing vibe.  The folder includes a texture change HUD with three color options – white, red and black.  To add this flirty little number to your SL closet, you need to be a member of the SL Frees and Offers Group, but since there is no fee to join, you can scoop up this gift completely for free!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • Maitreya

Until my next post, happy shopping!

I Can Smell Autumn Dancing on the Breeze

I Can Smell Autumn Dancing on the Breeze

Hello Fabulouses!  I hope you are as ready as I am for some fall colors.  Today, Ripley and I are bringing you a little slice of fall foliage as we share a couple of budget friendly Fabulous Finds.  I hope you like them!  Before I get into the details, if you are looking for a beautifully decorated autumn landscape, I’d highly recommend a visit to the Cherishville sim.  The puster and I really enjoyed the oranges, browns and other fall colors when we were there. They provided a wonderful contrast for the dark hues of my outfit.

A Great Hat Speaks for Itself

First up, my cheeky cap is a gift from the Inventory Trends store.  With a darling bow and just enough of a brim to shield your eyes from the sun, the Velma hat adds a functional and cute finishing touch to my ensemble.  Best of all, I picked it up for free, just by being a member of the Third Life Group.  The group has no join fee, so I didn’t have to pay a single Linden dollar for my newest fashion accessory.  Although the hat cannot be resized, I was able to move it around on my head and I resized my hair underneath to get the fit I was looking for.  The thoughtful designer tucked a HUD inside with three texture options so you can coordinate with different color schemes.  In addition to the black I am sporting, you could also choose red or a dark brown.  While you’re in the shop, you might want to try picking up one of the fourteen other gifts set out on the wall for members of various groups.  I’ve included a close up photo below so you can get a better look at Velma.

Velma

There’s Something Sexy…

about a girl with an attitude and a pair of leather pants.  The mesh black leather pants from the Bang Bang shop on the Marketplace pick up where Velma left off in the attitude department.  With a soft sheen, zippered pockets and a skin tight fit, you will feel super skinny, sexy and toasty warm when you wear this wardrobe essential.  No chilly autumn breeze will work its way through these pants!  Best of all, with a price tag of a mere 10 Linden dollars, you’ll hardly notice the difference in your bank account balance after your purchase. The folder includes versions for mesh as well as classic avatars, so there is something for everyone tucked inside.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatiblity:

  • Classic Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layer)
  • Fitmesh in XS, S, M, L
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

Until my next post, happy shopping!

Someday….

Someday

Hello there, Fabulous Readers!  I hope your week is off to a fantastic start.  Ripley and I paid a visit to one of our favorite shops today and picked up this lovely belted frock in a vibrant color (which happens to be my go-to shade to wear).  Best of all, it was completely free!

A Quiet Country Walk With My Pal

With its long skirt and sleeves, and high neckline, the Frill Sleeve Pleated Dress from S@bbia had me thinking of leisurely walks enjoying the crisp autumn air.  Since it has been over 110 degrees around my neck of the woods lately, I really, really am longing for the respite of fall!  Someday soon, it will come, right?  I just love the diamond patterned, lace texture on the fabric of this sweet dress and the way the belt is loosely knotted around my waistline.  My first thought for how to style it was to make my outfit a little bit country with cowgirl boots and a hat, but I spotted these cute Asymmetric Sandals in S@bbia, and decided to opt for slightly dressier instead.  Either way you go, this frock creates a charming look.  The folder includes just one size as well as an alpha layer for classic avatars, but I think it will work well with various mesh body types.  To add this versatile dress to your inventory, you need to be a member of the S@bbia group, but since there is no join fee, you can pick up a copy without spending a single Linden dollar!  While you are at the store, you can try your luck on the Guess and Win board and check to see if your letter appears on one of the Lucky Boards.  If you bring along your own good luck charm, you just might walk away with more than one addition to your wardrobe.  I know I did 🙂

What’s Included:

  • Mesh Dress (one size)
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars

Until my next post, happy shopping!

It’s Only Us

Fenceline

Hello Fabulouses!  I hope your week is going well.  Ripley and I are popping in quickly to share a darling outfit that I picked up as a free group gift.  With a floral crop top and sleek shorts, this outfit will have you ready for a weekend adventure, without putting even so much as a tiny dent in your budget.

Pretty Floral Print

Lalie from WellMade has lots of fine details such as the semi transparent generous cuffs, the ruffled edge on the hem and coordinating ties dangling down on the sides of the shorts.  While I opted for a grayish botanical print and black shorts, with the enclosed HUD, you have three other options for the top and bottom that you can switch up and combine to your heart’s content.  Since each piece is worn separately, you can mix and match with other items already in your inventory for added versatility.  Best of all, since the WellMade group has no join fee, you can add this summery number to your inventory completely for free!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique

Until my next post, happy shopping!

Today is My Day

Feeling the Magic

Hello Fabulouses!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend!  Ripley and I roamed the grid and discovered a free complete outfit that we think you’ll enjoy.  It comes from a new-to-me store and I think its a fun casual look just right for a Sunday evening.

Are You Feeling Lucky?

Over at the Mangula shop, there are a 24 lucky boards that require no group membership.  All you have to do is wait for your letter appear and you can pick up the outfit for free.  This adorable Laila set is one of the items you can win if your luck holds out.  The folder includes two top styles and a skirt.  I just love the off the shoulder design and soft blush pink color of the shirt.   The fabric texture of the blouse is really well done and features a checked pattern of delicate holes in the sleeves and body of the top.  The gift includes the bodysuit version of the top, but a separate blouse is included as well.  The skirt’s asymmetrical hemline ends with a torn denim edge that lends a casual flair to the outfit.  Twin butterflies grace its back pockets.  The folder includes versions for several mesh body avatars.  Best of all, it is completely free.  The only thing you will have to invest is a bit of time while you wait for your letter to appear.  If you don’t have a lucky dog like the pupster, you might want to bring along a trusty four leaf clover or lucky penny with you.  🙂

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Curvy
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Lara

I hope your week is off to a wonderful start tomorrow.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Elemental Forces

Rose

Hello Fabulous Readers!  I was in the mood for a dramatic pop of color today, and I found it in the sexiest little dress that I picked up as a prize in the Elemental Desire 2 Hunt for just 25 Linden dollars.  I am super excited to share this one with you!

When in Doubt, Wear Red

The Vespera Dress from Ambient Fashion features a curve-hugging style that will have you looking and feeling red-hot.  I just love the cut outs in the front of this frock and the way the back plunges dramatically low.  The fabric has a subtle geometric pattern that catches the light when you move.  This little number is perfect for a Friday date night!  Best of all, the package includes versions for classic as well as mesh body avatars.  To add this racy little mini to your inventory, all you need to do is locate the hunt object – the symbols of fire, air, earth and water on a black background – hidden somewhere in the shop.  In case you get stuck, there is a handy hint giver on the hunt poster on the wall.  If you’re feeling really adventurous, there is also a 1 Linden dollar prize for the same hunt in the store as well.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L (includes alpha layer for classic avatars)
  • eBody Curvy and Classic
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine
  • Venus

The Elemental Desires 2 Hunt runs until August 25th, so you still have plenty of time to discover some Fabulous Finds along the trail.  Until my next post, happy hunting!
