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


The FabFree Mesh Body and Head Listing is Live!

Miss Caroline Walker came to me a few days ago with a great idea:  to have a page that lists which mesh heads and bodies are currently available on the grid for free or as group gifts!  We get asked this question pretty often, and with designers being so generous these days, it’s nice to have a resource that will guide you.   This is a working document, with updates expected as we progress!  If you have any tips, please contact Caroline Walker (rawumber) inworld.

Even more importantly, if you want to thank her for her hard work – please be sure to do so.

THE FABFREE MESH BODY AND HEAD LISTING

Thanks Caroline – Fantastic work!

 


All I want for Christmas is… some free mesh bodies and heads!

Coming Soon to Fab Free

It’s the most wonderful time of the year…

Advent is my favourite time of the year in Second Life. In fact, I go a bit crazy with it! This year has been no letdown, and the amazing list compiled at Fab Free this year was incredible! Time to give our amazing blog organizer Aline a round of applause. *claps*. Make sure you check out those calendars and see if any of the past gifts are available before the 24th of December. The Fab Free December advent list is here.

Advent Calendar at Altamura

Today I will be sharing the incredible advent gifts by Altamura this year. The Altamura group is currently free to join for a limited time, which will give you access to their 12 days of Christmas gifts, sitting under the tree at the store, and two free mesh avatars. Joining the group will also give you access to group gifts that are located around the store (you have to search for them in each section of the store), and there is also a free male mesh head at the back of the store which is a current group gift.

Altamura is known for gifting free, full avatars that include a mesh body and head that are (usually) joined together. This advent, they are gifting two full mesh body and head combos for men and women. These bodies are fully BOM and bento and they can be used out of the box with few limitations. My friend Remus and I are showing off the full avatars above. They are beautiful! This is perfect if you need a new avatar or look for free. In each box, a full mesh head and body are included. The head and body are one piece so you cannot wear another head or body with each piece. Altamura bodies fit Altamura clothes, and you can often get the female avatar to fit other brands like Maitreya or Slink with the aid of alphas. I have heard that the male body fits Adam sized clothing nicely, but I have not tested that out. You will need to use alphas (see below) to wear non-Altamura clothes with these bodies. Altamura has a list of all the companies that make Altamura-sized clothing which is handy if you need help finding clothing for your new body.

One thing that’s important to know about these gift bodies is that they are fully BOM and because of this, they do not include a body hud. So, to add makeups, skins, and tattoos you must use BOM products. You can even use BOM eyes and nails. Any system eyes or nails will work with these bodies. As there is no body hud, you must use add alphas manually to your outfits. In order to alpha out sections of the body,  you will need a set of alphas (like the ones that are used when you have a classic avatar). I found two stores that have a good set of alphas out for free with no group join required:

  1. The first free alpha sets kit is at Little Black Dress. Just click the bag on the ground and the alphas are yours.
  2. Slink also has a set of free alphas out at their main store. Click the board that says “extra alpha layers”.

For the Ladies…

The free female body on offer is called “Movin’ On” and she is gorgeous. The ad below pictures what her head looks like up close. A truly beautiful avatar.

In addition to giving out these wonderful bodies, there are more gifts under the Christmas tree at Altamura. The red BOM shirt I am wearing underneath my sweater and the sparkly heels are two of those free gifts. The heels are fitted for Altamura, Maitreya, and Slink bodies.

Goodies for the Guys!

I pulled in my friend Remus for the post today. Remus is sporting the Take My Way male avatar, which is also free. He is wearing 3 other free advent gifts from Altamura’s calendar, including the sweater and the scarf. The sweater is sized for Altamura bodies only and the scarf will fit any avatar. The jeans he is wearing are BOM/system pants which can be found for free in everyone’s library. Details are listed in the credits below.

TAKE MY WAY GIFT

Another awesome freebie that’s out for the guys at Altamura right now is the Akakor Mesh head. I am not sure how long this head will be available for free, so I wanted to mention it for all the guys out there. This head is BOM and Omega compatible and it can be worn with any other mesh body! Normally, Altamura heads go for 3-4, 000 L so this is a great deal! Snatch it up which you can, boys!

Free Unisex Hair!

Coming Soon to Fab Free

The last thing I wanted to mention is the gifts at the Firestorm Major Event. Remus is wearing the free unisex Jaime hairstyle by Firelight which is currently free to get at the event. This hair can be worn on a male or female avatar and it is completely free, no group join required. This freebie is out for a limited time, and there is also a free arctic ferret, and a free black panther you can grab at the event. I can not find when this event ends, but it will be very soon because this is a holiday-themed event. Go while you still can to get the gifts there.

I wanted to give special thanks to Orion Swansong and Ryan Schultz for helping me prepare for this post! These bodies were new to me and they helped me out greatly. You can read Ryan Schultz’s review of the Altamura advent gift bodies here.

Go snatch all these great gifts up before it’s too late!

Eternal

Eternal

Even in death, be it through darkness and hellfire or endless light we will find a way.

Don’t worry, I won’t spend this blog post waxing poetic about otherworldly romance, however I will tell you how Blue and I managed to create this beautifully macabre scene with these awesome skeletal avatars. E-Clipse Design and CatsClaw Designs both have matching his and hers skeleton avatars out as group gifts. Unable to pick which set we liked the best I chose to wear the female avatar from E-Clipse Design along with a free applier mask from Mister Razzor. Blue on the other hand chose the male skeleton avatar from CatsClaw Designs, and together I think we make a fantastically spooky pair. Keep reading for all the important details about each item, or scroll on down for the full list of credits. Thanks for being here!

E-Clipse Design

As I mentioned above, my avatar from the neck down is all thanks to this awesome group gift by E-Clipse Design. It includes a male and female avatar. Both Avatars have the option of a beating heart with sound as well. The neck part of the avatar has a collar that reads “2 Sex 4 U.” To get your copy of these spooky fun avatars, head over to E-Clipse Design and join their free-to-join group. Once you’re wearing the group tag you’ll be able to claim your free gift.

Mister Razzor

Mister Razzor has out a free gift skull-face makeup applier. This gift is unisex and comes in several appliers. Currently no group is required for this gift, just purchase it at Mister Razzor for zero linden. Hurry though, I don’t know how long this freebie will last!

Appliers included: Catwa, Genus, Omega

((Mister Razzor)) Mister Skull Make Up Skin Head

CatsClaw Designs

This detailed unisex skeleton avatar by CatsClaw Designs is free to all CatsClaw Designs group members. The Group is free-to-join. The gift is free also, however because it is in a Casper Vend you will need to pay 1 linden then the 1 linden will be instantly refunded to you.
