FabFree – Fabulously Free in SL

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


Retro 

Coming Soon to Fab Free

You got to love all things retro: shiny skirts and tops, small (hopefully fake) fur jackets, a classic diner. This is all very ’50s and I love a swing back or roleplay of that era even if I wouldn’t have actually wanted to live in that time.

More goodies from Scandalize

Although Scandalize is no longer free to join, as Aline shared with you last week, there is a significantly reduced join fee for the group now. The Scandalize group now costs only 20 Linden to join. The Scandalize group gives you access to so many gifts and lucky board prizes so it is super worth it to join for this low cost if you missed the free group join period last week. Today I am showing off Krisia, one of their loveliest group gifts. This item is a fatpack and includes the skirt, top, belt, and fur jacket.

Sizes Included:

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Legacy
  • Lara
  • Hourglass

 

Enjoy, Fab Free!

Finding Some Holiday Spirit

Finding Some Holiday Spirit

With Thanksgiving looming (I know I said I wouldn’t celebrate, but the rest of my extended family does.) and Christmas ever approaching, I felt the need to inspire a bit of the holiday spirit in myself. I put on a comfy somewhat Christmas-like outfit, even got out the reindeer antlers just for fun. Turned on some holiday music, hung some flashy snowflakes in my kitchen, and got to baking. This year I decided to challenge myself with Crème Brulee. After a couple of tries, I think I’ve got it down! Now to whip up a practice batch of Christmas cookies… not because I really need to practice making them, but rather I want to practice eating them. 😛

Beusy 

You can get yourself into the spirit of the season, or just look extra cute by heading over to Beusy and taking advantage of their Black Friday sale. Everything in the store is marked 60% off. Regular hairstyles are 100L per color pack, however gachas are 25L per play. I took advantage of the sale on gachas. This cute fatpack shoulder-length style with optional reindeer antlers is the Rare gacha prize in the “Once Upon Eve” machine. At 25 linden per play you really can’t go wrong, especially if you take someone with you who is willing to trade! This Black Friday Sale at Beusy ends Nov. 28th.

LS Store

Also, this long t-shirt style dress with “LOVE” in block lettering on the front is a free gift at LS Store for the Mesh Body Friends group. You’ll need to join the free-to-join Mesh Body Friends group in order to get your gift. This dress has a color change hud with several colorful choices, and 2 grey and white combinations.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Classic Mesh (xxs-L) + Alpha Layer, TMP, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Freya, Venus, Isis)

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.

Blustery Day

Blustery Day

It’s been cooler out, and today the winds came. For the first time this year it actually felt like autumn in my part of the world. For that I am most thankful. I’m also thankful that I can be here, with you, sharing fabulous things I find. For this post I actually didn’t need to traverse the grid to get my hands on a few goodies. Instead I took advantage of Second Life’s version of distance shopping, the Marketplace. Every now and then I take some time to poke through Marketplace listings just to see what I might find. For this look my hair, my top, and my manicure are all Marketplace dollarbies. I hope you enjoy them!

Pr!tty

This decidedly wind-blown hairstyle is a 1 linden fatpack by Pr!tty on the Marketplace. It comes in a rigged and an unrigged version so you can resize the unrigged version. I really like these types of styles for photography. Since it’s a fatpack you’ll also get all the hair color choices available.

Catastrophic Creations

I love cacti and succulents. So it goes without question that I had to have this dollarbie Marketplace find from Catastrophic Creations. The rainbow colored flower pots are their nod toward Pride, which makes me like the shirt even more. This top is a unisex shirt that comes in a BOM system layer and a Maitreya Lara applier only.

TOASTED

Finally, my pink and bluish purple manicure is a dollarbie Marketplace as well. The single hud will apply the polish to your fingernails and toenails for a cute matching set. The tri-color polish comes in a Maitreya applier only.

Pretty Bird

Beautiful Bird

Alright, I think it’s time for a little confession. I think I am a freebie addict. What?! You already knew? lol Of course you did. Thankfully for all of us, we’re in excellent company here. I went on a bit of a freebie shopping spree at The Free Dove recently. It’d been a while since I’d browsed through the goods there, and I found a thing, or three to share with you. It was really a bit difficult to stick to only three, but no one wants to have a ten page blog post so here we are! Along with my finds from LYBRA, and Shiny Stuffs at The Free Dove, I picked up two of the several group gifts at Toksik. As always, credits will be at the bottom, details in the middle. Happy Shopping Fab Free!

LYBRA

I am loving this little dress by LYBRA at The Free Dove. It is free, like everything at The Free Dove. You just have to wear the group tag. The Free Dove group is also free to join. I like the satiny texture of this dress, and the romantic look to it. I feel pretty wearing it. It includes a color change hud with a fatpack of 26 solid color choices.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza Freya

Shiny Stuffs 

Among my several Second Life shopping addictions (Hey there are worse problems to have!) I definitely tend to collect makeup. Shiny Stuffs has several free gifts at The Free Dove, including a few that have somehow escaped my attention before now. The “Gekischa’s Kiss” lip applier set, and the “Blink!” eye shadow set. There are 10 lipstick shades in the Gekischa’s Kiss gift by Shiny Stuffs, and 9 eye shadow choices in the Blink! set. These freebies come in Catwa appliers only. Don’t forget your Free Dove group tag!

Toksik

I recently came across Toksik, and I have no  idea why I’ve not shopped at this store before. Their style is eclectic and has a touch of fantasy mixed with modern elements. Right now the Toksik store group is 99 linden to join and there are 9 total group gifts currently available. Two of the nine gifts are unisex. I picked up a set of darkly adorable “Dolly” nails, along with the unisex necklace that reads “Heartbreaker.” The nails have 6 color schemes to pick from, and the are adorned with pretty little accents like bows and pearls. The necklace is sized via touch menu, and has 6 metal colors to choose from.

Nail Sizes Included: Belleza, Legacy, Maitreya, Slink

Beautiful Dreamer

Beautiful Dreamer

“All that we see or seem, is but a dream within a dream.” ~Edgar Allan Poe

I’m fairly fickle on the ideas of dreams and their meaning, though I admittedly spend a decent amount of time daydreaming and often have vivid dreams when I sleep. I suppose in a way we all get to live a dream we create here in Second Life. So here’s to all the dreamers out there, I hope only the good dreams come true. For now, I can help with some dreamy free and inexpensive finds!

CryBunBun

Only in Second Life would I dream of being this cute in a leather and lace bra and panty set. Leather does not generally scream “delicate underthings” to me, but it sure does look gorgeous. The set I have on is a free gift at CryBunBun aptly named “Mercy.” It comes in this “moon” black version shown, and a “sun” white. No group is needed for this cute freebie. It may however only be available for a limited time!

Sizes Included: Signature Alice, Maitreya Lara, Maitreya Lara Petite, MeshBody Legacy, MeshBody Legacy Perky

Supernatural 

To go with my afore mentioned delicate underthings, I picked up an equally gorgeous necklace set at Supernatural. It was news to me that they have an entire wall of 75 linden fatpacks. The packs are mostly jewelry, however there are some accessories as well. I am wearing part of the Heidi set. This particular set comes in gold and silver, each with several jewel color choices. The sets have 3 necklaces that can be worn together. What I have on are 2 of the 3 in the silver and black set. I took a snap of the wall of 75 linden goodness at Supernatural. There’s so much to choose from, you’re bound to find something you like.

Mister Razzor

Finally, if you’re on the hunt for new ink, which I always am, Mister Razzor has three female tattoos for just 40 linden each. The tattoo I am wearing is a full body tattoo called “Bella.” This tattoo comes in Omega appliers and BOM/Classic System Layers. The BOM layers, and appliers give the option of full or 75% opacity. No group is needed for the 40 linden price.

Appliers/Layers Included: Omega, BOM/Classic Layers

Pampered & Spoiled

Lybra Updates Group

Hey Fab Free! I’m all about Lybra this week, and I am back with another post to let you know about the wonderful offers and freebies at their store. Today I will be talking about the completely free Lybra updates group, not to be confused with their paid VIP group, which will grant you access to gifts, lucky letters, 1 L items, and raffle boards!

Lybra updates group

At the beginning of 2020, Lybra introduced a free updates group. So for those of you who do not wish to be part of the VIP group, which I wrote about the other day, this group may serve your needs. Some of the perks of this group include access to the Lybra updates lobby where you can find free and 1 L gifts, lucky letters, and more. There is also a 500 linden prize raffle you can enter every hour that draws once a week, as long as you stay in the group and keep the store in the picks section on your profile.

The Lybra Updates Members Lobby

One of the fanciest things about the free Lybra updates group is that there is a special lobby made just for members! That means it’s time to get together with your friends, head over to Lybra, chill out in the lobby and be spoiled and pampered with presents! When you enter the Lybra store, simply head up the stairs and make your way over the Lybra updates group lobby. There, you will find lucky letter prizes, gifts and more. They even have some furniture and décor items out for free here, although most of the gifts are women’s fashion items.

The Outfit

I am wearing the Lucky Board Gift #2 from Lybra at the moment, and it’s lovely. It’s a bit vintage, and this item is available as a lucky board prize in white, burgundy, and in a rose pattern. You can win this item for free in the Lybra updates members lounge with your group tag activated.

Sizes Included

  • Maitreya
  • Belleza (Freya & Isis)
  • Alice Signature
  • Slink Hourglass

More Free Shoes!

Here I am also showing off more free shoes from KC Couture today. These are the Laura heels, which are a current SL Frees and Offers group gift. Simply join their free group and tap their gift vendor behind the counter to get them.

Sizes Included

  • Maitreya
  • Belleza
  • Slink

Have fun, lovelies!

Chillin’ in Camo

At the Cottage

I hope you all had a great weekend, Fab Free! I escaped away to the cottage, and took this new free outfit from Merch with me. It seems to fit the mood of relaxation and wildlife that goes along with cottage life, don’t you think? One of my friends said that this camo jacket makes me look like a “redneck”- so I went with it and ventured off to the Canadian wilderness…(I am a Canuck, after all). I also have some free hair and poses to show off too!

Get some Merch

To get this outfit, simply head over the Merch and join their free group. It is their latest group gift, and the package includes a fatpack of tiny tanks, leggings and the camo jacket. You can mix and match the tank and leggings to suit your needs. This set could work for going to the gym or just vegging on the couch- have fun with it! There are several past group gifts at Merch which you can get for free while you’re there, so pick them up while you can.

Sizes Included (Top & Thermals)

  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass
  • Belleza Isis, Freya
  • Legacy
  • BBL

Sizes Included (Jacket)

  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Freya

Escalated got a Makeover!

Escalated recently revamped their store and they have new free gifts for all and new gifts, MM boards and other offers for their group members. This cute hair, Cupid, is one of the gifts you can grab for for just 5L; no group is needed for this. The hair is really cute and you can change the hair colour, add highlights and more with the HUD included with it.

Yana

Finally, I wanted to let you all know that the chill poses I am showing off here are the Yana pose set which is currently a free group gift at Indigo. Simply join the free Manly Weekend group to get this gift, and you will receive the set of four poses. Most of them are intended for smoking poses (cigarette is not included), but simple standing poses are also included.

Enjoy, Fab Free!

#LoveWins


#lovewins

Hello Fab Free! So as we all know by now it’s Pride Month, and I am loving all the enthusiasm I’m seeing. My Love. Your Love. Her Love. His Love. Their Love. Love wins! To continue the celebration and the proud support, I’m giddy with rainbow goodness from Reign and Luas.

Thanks to the several rainbow themed Saturday Sale items that are still available at Reign, my shoes and my drink are the most colorful they have probably ever been. The delicious looking drink comes in 2 versions, one with a static hold, and one with an animated hold. The shoes are in black, white, glitter black, and glitter white (shown) version, each in multiple sizes. Both of these rainbow-tastic Saturday Sale items at Reign, and the ones not shown here, will be available at the fabulous price of 75 linden each until this coming Saturday.

Shoe Sizes Included: Slink, Belleza, Maitreya

Luas Yona VIP Gift June

This long sleeve belted dress is the June group gift at Luas. It comes with a texture change hud that lets you pick from 4 presets each for the main part of the dress, the belt, and the graphic across the front. All things considered, the rainbow options were just irresistible for me anyway. This cute as heck dress comes in a few sizes and is free to all Luas VIP group members. At this time there is a one time join fee of 50 linden, and there are multiple previous group gifts available.

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