Guilty

If I’m being accused of enjoying the freebies I picked up at The Jail event, guilty as charged! I know I know, I already did a post about the event, and the fact that they’re having an anniversary. I just couldn’t help sharing a few more of the fantastic gifts. Incase you missed them, Aline posted about The Jail event gifts here, and my last post “Who Run the World” featured a few of them as well. The Jail event gifts are all free, you just need the free-to-join group tag. For this post I’m featuring the free gifts at The Jail event by Simply Saddii, Immortuos, and Dark Love.

The Jail Event Group: secondlife:///app/group/e9238129-1407-9f47-3533-35ec703bfcbf/about

Simply Saddii 

I really like this little black dress by Simply Saddii, and not just because it’s free at The Jail event. I like the style of the dress, and I feel like it has just the right amount of whimsy without being too juvenile for my taste. Again, this dress is free, just wear your Jail event group tag and click the gift vendor at the Simply Saddii both.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus)

Immortuos 

The chest tattoo I’m wearing is the free Jail event gift by Immortuos. It reads “guilty” and I find it dark, a little bit cheeky, and really well done. It also comes in “irritation” levels which gives it some added detail that most lettering tattoos. The irritation shows as the redness around a freshly inked tattoo or perhaps skin irritation around the letters for some other reason.

Layers/Appliers Included: BOM Layers (tattoo, tattoo irritation1, tattoo irritation2), Omega Applier

Dark Love

Finally, the planchette and hold pose used for this photo is part of the free gift by Dark Love at The Jail event. The gift includes 4 planchettes, each with a different hold pose. I thought this gift was just too cute to not share. The planchettes also have a little particle effect. They emit cutely sinister looking little particles while you hold the planchette.

Possessed

Possessed

Hello There Fab Free’rs! Once again I’m feeling very in the spooky spirit of the season. I a few more of the many many many Halloween Shop & Hop gifts. I created this almost pretty possessed look using the gift skin from YS&YS, the gift dress from Luas, and the septum piercing gift from RAWR!. I really hope you have some fun with these freebies.

YS&YS

I can’t help but love this free skin from YS&YS at the Halloween Shop & Hop event. Even with her scarred face, she’s still a pretty chick. This would be such a fun skin to create a story around. This free gift includes BOM layer full skins, face only BOM layers. There are also variations to suit Genus, Lelutka, and Catwa heads. There are also two pairs of BOM layer eyes, the “blind” eyes shown and a creepy cool black pair.

Luas 

This skeleton print dress is the free gift at the Halloween Shop & Hop by Luas. The “Donna” dress comes in a full fatpack with lots of HUD based color choices. Even with the exposed shoulders the dress has an almost cozy look to it that makes it a cool addition to any fall wardrobe.

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

Luas @Halloween Shop & Hop http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Aurelian/165/28/53

RAWR!

Lastly, the planchette septum piercing from RAWR! was just the added touch this look needed. It’s also free at the Halloween Shop & Hop event. Included with the piercing is a color change HUD that gives you several options for the metal ring and the planchette part of the piercing.

Alleycat Ballet

Alleycat Ballet

Alright so I’m gonna call this look a little bit Flash Dance, and a little bit Cats. haha I actually had a lot of fun dressing up and taking photos in this, especially since the outfit is completely free. I picked up the top, bottom, and adorable socks for free at Voluptas Virtualis. As soon as I put the outfit on I felt nostalgic for those iconic ’80s and ’90s dance movies. Maybe it’s time for a movie marathon? haha

This awesome gift from Voluptas Virtualis is free for everyone. The matching “Hadi” top and bottom come in female sizes only, however the fuzzy socks come sized for male avatars as well as female. Both gifts are packaged together. Just click the vendor near the landing point and the gift will be sent to you. The “Hadi” set has a color/texture change hud with some fun tiger stripe options and solid colors. You can also hide/show the trim or color it separately. The socks have a color/texture change hud with lots of options. Also, if kitty feet aren’t your thing, fear not, there are solid color choices as well as stripes. I have no idea how long this gift will be available, so don’t wait!

P.S. There are also several other freebies in the same spot at Voluptas Virtualis, no group needed!

Outfit Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza Freya, Legacy Female
Sock Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Hourglass, Male), Belleza (Freya, Jake), Legacy (Female, Male)

A Night In

A Night In

I’ve been feeling indulgent today, feeling the need to drag myself up out of the doldrums quarantine can sometimes bring me to. What better way to self-indulge than to wander through Tres Chic while it’s full of free gifts (thanks to this being an anniversary round)?! Aline gorgeously showed off a few of the generous Tres Chic group gifts in her post “Back in the Day“, and I wanted to share just a few more while they are still available. The Tres Chic group is free to join, just wear the tag and click the gift boxes to get your freebies.

Elven Elder

My lavender trimmed hoodie is the Tres Chic gift by Elven Elder. Purple, and just about every shade thereof, is a favorite color of mine, so this freebie is a need. It comes in the color shown with a few size options. It also comes with a hud that lets you adjust the materials and glossiness of the hoodie.

Sizes Included: Legacy, Belleza (Isis, Freya), Maitreya Lara

BH9

These cool blocky glasses are the free Tres Chic event gift by BH9, they come with clear lenses like shown, and with dark lenses. They are unisex, and can be sized via touch menu.

Need Caffeine

Need Caffeine

There are days when an extra cup of coffee or two first thing in the morning, and a mid-day pick-me-up are in order to keep me going. So when I saw this top by ZFG it made me giggle, and I knew at least some of you would relate. lol To help fend off a minor case of the Mondays I went over to the 35L Sales Event (thanks to a suggestion from Blue) and picked up quite a few of the free group gifts available, including this top. All the gifts require the 35L Sunday VIP group which is free to join.

Along with the top from ZFG I picked up this cute hairstyle from C.K., and this pretty necklace by Venge. Keep reading for more information about each of these free gifts. Full credits will be listed at the end as always.

ZFG

This shirt by ZFG is the definition of a loose-fitting comfy casual top. It’s the kind you wear around the house, or maybe with a cute sports bra to the gym. It comes in the color shown and reads “Caffeine is the Foundation of My Food Pyramid.” This gift is free at the 35L Sales Event, just wear the free group tag and click the black and red giftbox.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Freya, Venus)

C.K.

This high ponytail hairstyle is also a free gift at the 35L Sales Event. It’s the quintessential messy but cute up-do. It also comes with a pretty flower crown that I chose not to wear, and a color change hud with a broad range of blond, brunette, and red hair colors.

Venge

Also, I couldn’t resist the necklace from Venge. This free gift includes 3 color/texture change huds to change the chain with a choice of copper, gold, or silver. Each of the 3 huds then has a choice of 6 colors for the crystal. Just like all the gifts at the 35L Sales Event, this one is free with the event group tag.

Celebratory Cupcake

Cupcake

Hello to the Fabulous in the land of pixels. I come to you with free gifts and a sugary sweet cupcake. I also might have had more coffee than usual today. The prizes in this post are my cute floral top/dress from American Bazaar, this cute hair-do by Limerence, and an Anniversary cupcake by Focus Poses.

Cosmopolitan Sales Room Anniversary Gifts

How about that, Cosmopolitan Sales Room is celebrating an Anniversary, and we are all invited! Most of the many participating designers in this round have generously placed out a free gift to help celebrate. The gifts require the free-to-join Cosmo event group. Once you’re wearing your tag you just need to click the sparkly gold gift boxes to get the free gifts. I picked up this cute hairstyle by Limerence. It’s called Diza, and it comes in a “Special” color pack. I tinted mine to this dark brunette shade using the Limerence hud. I also got this tasty cupcake from the Focus Poses gift. This delicious freebie includes the pose as well.

American Bazaar 

I love the casual yet put together look of this loose fitting floral top/dress by American Bazaar. Look at those buttons! It the group gift for the month of May. It claims to be a dress, however it’s a tad sheer in places, and a little short, so I threw on some denim shorts and wore it as a top instead. I think it’s too cute to pass up however you want to wear it. The American Bazaar group is free to join.

Sizes Included: Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus)

Cheshire Cat

Cheshire Cat

It seems I am on a bit of a Wonderland kick lately. Has anyone seen Alice? I’m not entirely sure if this look says “Cheshire Cat” or not, but I had so much fun putting it together, and I felt very Cheshire Cat-like in it. So before I disappear, or perhaps run off to play with the rabbit, I want to tell you more about this sexy fun outfit. Several pieces to this look are free group gifts at GoldSquare, and the detailed tattoo is a free Stay at Home Club gift from This is Wrong. Keep reading for details, and peep the credits at the end.

GoldSquare

I feel the need to start this by saying do not miss these freebies! There are quite a few wardrobe staples for free at GoldSquare at the moment, including this sassy little black dress. If black isn’t your color, it comes in red as well. The GoldSquare group is free to join as well. In addition to this cute dress, the bento stiletto nails I’m wearing, and even my pose are free group gifts are GoldSquare. The nails have a color change hud with 12 solid color choices. I of course went with black. lol The pose is part of the “Lessie” AO, which is one of 3 female AO gifts at GoldSquare. I could go on and on about the several gifts, yes there are more, I took a snapshot you can see below.

Dress Sizes Included: Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Maitreya Lara, Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Legacy

Bento Nail Sizes Included: Maitreya, Belleza

This is Wrong

The tattoo giving me detailed spots and stripes is from This is Wrong. It ‘s their free gift for the “Stay at Home Club.” No group is required for this gift, just click the vendor at This is Wrong. You simply buy this tattoo for zero linden. It comes in a classic tattoo layer, an Omega applier, and a Legacy applier. It should be wearable for classic, BOM, and most regular mesh avatars.

Sunshine Daisies Butter Mellow

Sunshine Daisies Butter Mellow

Hello hello Fab Free, I hope you’re all doin well. I am making it a day at a time. I think we all are in some form or fashion. Speaking of Fashion, I’m loving this yellow moment. I took a time out in SL, browsed through some shops, and just had some me time. Along the way I also picked up these yellow shoes by Thrive, and this honey bee patterned top by Kieran Stephens Designs for free. Something about the bright warm yellow colors really uplifted my mood, and the “free” aspect didn’t hurt. Lastly, keeping with the yellow theme, this cozy chair from Consignment is just 1 linden. Keep reading for details, and check the end for credits.

Thrive

I have a thing for yellow-work boots. Call it nostalgia, call it weird, call it whatever you like, I love them. These “B-Ball Sneakers” by Thrive remind me exactly of that shade of work-boot-yellow. They are also unisex in that they come in male and female sizes. Even better, they are a free group gift at Thrive. The Thrive group also happens to be free to join at this time, so don’t miss out!

Sizes Included: Belleza Freya, Slink Hourglass, Maitreya Lara, Legacy, Legacy Male, Signature Male, Belleza Jake, Standard Mesh

Kieran Stephens Designs

Having picked up my sneaks at Thrive, I was on the hunt for something to wear with them. This cute off-the-shoulder cropped top in bright yellow with the honey bee print could not have worked out better. This fun top is a free Stay at Home Club gift by Kieran Stephens Designs. There’s no group needed, just grab your free gift at Kieran Stephens Designs. It’s that easy!

Size Included: Maitreya Lara

Consignment 

This buttery yellow chair by Consignment is quite possibly one of my favorite dollarbie finds. Blue’s had it in the house as long as I’ve known him and I’ve always liked it. Today he let me in on the dollarbie secret. We double checked, and sure enough it’s still just 1 linden at Consignment. It has couples and singles animated poses, PG of course, and the textures are nice. To get yours you’ll need to find the vendor for this chair at Consignment, the vendor is small. It’s on the second level of the displays. You’ll see what I mean when you get there if you’ve not been before. There’s no group needed, just pay the vendor 1 linden and your chair will be sent to you.

Road Trip to Nowhere in Particular

Road Trip

Hello hello Fab Free, I hope you’re all surviving first life well enough. As for Second Life, Blue and I decided to throw a few things in a bag and jump in the car for a much-needed getaway. Like most of us, we decided we could use a little change of scenery. This little diner was an impromptu stop along the way on our road trip to nowhere in particular. We got out stretch our legs, take in some scenery, grab a bite to eat, and of course take a few photos. After all, is it really a vacation if you don’t have a few social media worthy photos? Hah, just kidding.

The pose we used for this snapshot is a free Stay at Home Club gift from The Owl. This free couples pose by The Owl comes with pose balls and individual pose animations. No group is needed for the Stay at Home Club gifts. My t-shirt is a free Stay at Home Club gift as well. I picked it up at Sass. The over-sized casual tee by Sass says “Actually, I can.” and comes in the color shown, and has a matching pair of panties included. The last of the Stay at Home Club gifts for this post is a set of eyes Blue is wearing from Madame Noir, which are of course free. Blue’s short-sleeve button-down shirt is also a free gift. It comes from Ascend and is free for all SLF&O group members. The men’s short from Ascend comes in the color and print shown, and requires the free-to-join SL Frees & Offers group tag.

Hello There Fab Free, I trust we are all staying safe at home as much as we can. Speaking of staying at home, the Second Life Stay at Home Club has been a bright spot in otherwise dark times. I’m thankful we can all socialize and spend time together in SL while we are being socially distant in RL. I’m equally excited to be able to share with you more amazing freebies thanks to the generosity of so many designers in Second Life. Today’s post features gifts from Normandy and Hilted.

Normandy

The striped jumpsuit I’m wearing is the free “Stay at Home” gift from Normandy. It fits like a glove. Dress it up, dress it down, wear it to the beach, workout, whatever, you’ll look amazing. It comes with a color change hud that lets you change the jumper’s main color, and the color of the straps/hem.

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

The set includes a chair, sofa, table, and tabletop décor. All the pieces are copy/mod, so you can rez multiples. I know my photo is dark, but I wanted to show how this furniture really glows. I feel like this could be part of so many cool settings. A million possibilities come to mind. Don’t miss out on this striking furniture set at Hilted.
