Catch Me In Your Dreams

More and more amazing designers are offering amazing group gifts for the FabFree Group at their in-world stores. House of Ruby has now offered up a fashionably sexy gift for us fellas that gentlemen will want to get in on. These Torn Boxers for Him come in system layers as well as Slink or Omega Huds. You also get two versions… the “mesh” version I’m showing in the picture above, or the slightly riskier “clear” version that I’m not showing😉

To pick up this generous FREE gift, simply join the Fabulously Free Group by copying and pasting secondlife:///app/group/020fa7af-444d-f54f-01e2-557ec06315fd/about into local chat. When the link for the group comes up, click it and choose join. Then teleport to House of Ruby and pick up your FREE gift.

Pixel Box is also currently hosing a FREE in-store Group Gift hunt. What does this mean? It means there are 4 group gifts set out that are FREE to group gift members. Join the Pixel Box group FREE, wander around the store and find the gifts and they are yours FREE. I’m sporting the Gothic dreamcatcher necklace in the picture above. I’m pretty sure it’s meant for a female avatar but I discovered that with the resize option, it’s very versatile and manages to be nicely unisex. I found it made a nice match to my new House of Ruby briefs. The other gifts at Pixel Box were just as nice, and included both ladies and gents, and you can’t go wrong with FREE.

Never Too Tired

Never Too Tired

The Men Only Hunt has proven lucrative this month, with lots of amazing gifts for us menfolk to fill out our inventories. I opted for a new hairstyle today, which I picked up from Speakeasy. This FREE gift, is courtesy of the creator as part of the hunt. Just search for the beer and buy it for 0L. It includes two side-swept mesh styles, and huds for a full fatpack of colors. It’s well worth hunting down.

I’m never too tired for a good deal, so I also swung by It’s Gau and picked up the FREE men’s group gift from the back of the store. Join the group FREE and this tattoo you see me wearing is yours FREE. It comes in a system layer as well as appliers for TMP and Signature mesh bodies.

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.

Baubles! and Stripes


I’m always thrilled when EvelineInTheBox sets out a new group gift, and I was not disappointed with the latest giftie. This pretty shirt with its upward dipped front, rivets at the neckline, and colorful stripes is not only fun, but also beautiful. It comes in all the standard mesh sizes as well as fitmesh sizes for a multitude of mesh bodies, including: Maitreya, Hourglass and Physique, Freya, Isis, and Venus. It fits like a dream and since the group is FREE to join, the gift is completely FREE as well.

I paired this boho reminiscent style shirt with a pair of earrings that I felt had the same feel. I picked up the Baubles! gift earrings FREE as a group gift as well. This group is also FREE to join. There were two other gifts setting out for you to enjoy… another pair of earrings as well as a pretty necklace.

Not Just Another Fantasy

Not Just Another Fantasy

Halloween is the perfect time to fill out your fantasy wardrobe… and 7 Deadly s{K}ins is making that a little easier this month with two excellent fantasy skins as their group gifts. You first saw the Ladies gift shown off [HERE] by Sheidey. But the men were not left out this month.

If you are a group member (the group fee is 150L) you can pick up the men’s gift at 7 Deadly s{K}ins in the fantasy tone shown above. It includes 3 versions… a clean face and 2 different white bearded versions, each with different brow options. Included in the package are appliers for slink hands and feet as well as the slink body appliers and omega appliers as well. Be sure to hit “accept” when you see all the pop ups, as the omega package does come separately from the slink package. You don’t want to miss getting the extra box.

I also picked up this very nice FREE necklace as part of the Men Only Hunt. I thought it had a fantasy feel and decided to include it in my post. This is the gift from etham and is a fairly elaborate and well made silver and blue design on a black cord. It would be an excellent addition to any gentleman’s wardrobe. Just teleport to etham and hunt down the iconic beer symbol and this classic pendant is yours FREE.

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.

Falling for Sweaters

Coming soon to FabFree

The days are getting shorter, and the air is getting cooler (allegedly, unless you live in a southern climate like me :P).  It’s my favorite time of the year, cute and cozy sweater weather!  I’m in love with this Halloween-y sweater dress group gift from S@BBiA (free to join).  To round out the outfit, I added pieces from Sn@tch’s 7 Seas Fishing outfit, Coven.  Shown here are the boots, leggings, earrings and choker necklace.  (If you would like to see the rest, check out Love’s Post!).  You will need a 7 Seas fishing pole to get these items.  They start at $100 L, and are worth the investment!

My favorite outfits in Second Life are definitely the ones I can see myself wearing in real life, and I would wear this one everyday!

In the Dark

In the Dark

In the spirit of longer nights and shorter days, I decided to put together a spookier outfit. I don’t always dress up for Halloween, but I do love the holiday. This dress and hat when I put them together gave me a little thrill, and the price was perfect too.

You can score this dress (in all the standard mesh sizes) for FREE by slapping the midnight mania board at LOoLOo‘s. No group required. Hurry though, it locks down at only 15 slaps… though my dress was delivered well before midnight, so it’s possible that it is one of those boards that locks more than once in a day. I like the details on this dress as well as the cut.

I paired it with a ladies one piece top hat and veil from Pixel Box. This is a 5L marketplace hunt. You visit their marketplace store and hunt down the item. It will only cost you a little time and 5 little linden. I thought it added a nice macabre touch to the dress without going overboard.

To Fall

To fall

With Halloween right around the corner and with it tons of candy and spooky decorations and parties, I thought it would be fun to scour the grid to bring to you some free or under 75L costume ideas. My usual style tends towards the casual but if there’s anything Second Life has taught me it’s to try new things…so here goes! If you’re not on the RP scene like I am (getting there it’s on my bucket list) but just want to look like someone straight out of a fantasy novel for a day, head on down to Sadix Shop and try your luck on their lucky chairs. The chairs are open to the public with no group join required so when your letter is called you can have this outfit in your inventory entirely for free.

The armor set featured is the Libra outfit and includes everything shown including a fiery back detail and arcane field that is not pictured. The boots, top, and panties of the Libra outfit are mesh and come in the following sizes; boots (S-XL), panties (XS-L) and top (XXS-L). There are alpha layers included for all three items though in the spirit of full disclosure I did have to play with my sliders just a little especially in the chest area. Still, I personally feel that the few tweaks are well worth it as the armor set is well made and detailed. I love the deep red color and feel that it pairs off well with the burnished gold accents. If you have a mesh body that uses the Lola’s Tango applier there is an applier for the top included in the package as well.

The knee and shoulder guards, as well as the skirt, lends another layer of detail to the Libra outfit. These can be edited into position with your shape and I feel that they make great mix and match options if you want to change how the outfit looks. There is also a Lucky Chair for the male version of the Libra outfit as well as a no group required Midnight Mania board that you can slap if you want to try the Libra Guardian avatar.

The skin I’m wearing in this picture is the October group gift from 7 Deadly s{K}ins. If you enjoyed sweet-faced Klaasje then this fantasy skin tone set will be a great update for RP or themed parties in general. The pack includes classic system skin in the tone dust with cleavage and no cleavage options, Omega head appliers for LAQ, Catwa and [AK] heads, Slink hand and feet appliers as well as Omega body appliers various mesh bodies and a Maitreya body applier. Whew! That’s a skin pack with lots of varied options. The generosity of creators in Second Life never ceases to amaze me. I don’t own a mesh body or head (on that bucket list) but it’s an education just reading these skin packages.

Well! I’m off to find another costume idea. Till next time!
