FabFree – Fabulously Free in SL

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


First coffee, then everything else

First coffee, then everything else

Hello again, FabFree.  I was made aware yesterday of a new shop just for the men. Since this isn’t a common occurrence, I was more than happy to check it out. And I was very glad I did. But first I have to thank the great folks in the FabFreechat group who are the ones who brought this new store to Juli’s attention. She pounced on me the second I got in world and set me to work. ( A tip of the hat to “SB” )

The new shop is Butterscotch and it’s rather tasty as the name may suggest. When I landed at the front doors I had to dodge my way past loads of new shoppers which I hope is a very good sign of the designer. I joined the free group and immediately got a 400L gift card. A note of warning, if I read the signs correctly, this group will become 50L to join at some point in the future. A good reason to hurry over.  In addition to the gift card, there is also a group gift. This is the ‘Lucas Henley’. It comes with a full fatpack of colors. The HUD includes twenty colors for the Henley shirt and  twenty colors for the undershirt. The build is spot on and the details are very nice indeed.  I really appreciate that the arms and shoulders do not deform when I move. Something many designers miss when making male clothing.  

I used my gift card to purchase the jeans I’m wearing as well. The ‘Liam’ jeans are available in both singles and a fat pack. I chose the single ‘Denim #1’ pack. I am equally impressed with the jeans as with the top.  I have a feeling I will be showing off many more items from Butterscotch.   

Also…on a personal note… when you add the item from your inventory a soothing masculine voice says “Butterscotch… enjoy.”   I just… what can I say.  Juli made me take it off and on several times just to hear it again. I do have to admit… It’s an awesome touch.

Confess

Confess

All right, FabFree.  I have a confession to make. I was lazy this Holiday season and I did not do my due diligence when the Access Event opened up way back on December 12th. Now here it is about 24 hours before the Event closes… and I’m just getting a very nice men’s gift up on the blog. Don’t yell… Juli is already rather put out with me.  That said… don’t waste a moment getting over to the Access Event before it shuts it’s doors and pick up quite a few nice free gifts for the men. Just join the Access Event group which is also free.

I chose this stylish jacket and turtleneck combination from Varsity, the ‘Randon Jacket’. You’ll get a HUD to change the color of both the Jacket and the sweater for good versatility. The pose is built in to the jacket so your hands stay in the pockets. The details are very well done and I foresee wearing this quite often.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Jake
  • Legacy
  • Signature – Gianni
Again… the Access Event closes January 8 so hurry over before it’s too late.

Dreaming by the fire

Dreaming by the fire

Season’s Greetings, Fabulous Folk. As you’ve seen, Julianna is completely immersed herself in the Christmas cheer. So I feel I can do the same. Winter is fully upon us here in our little corner of the Grid and the Real World as well. In fact, there are little flurries of snow falling as I write this. So it’s the perfect setting to stay in beside the fire with a good book and a couple of happy puppers.

I’m dressed for the occasion in this casual turtleneck from Madcat Creations. It seems I’ve been showing quite a bit from this talented designer lately. And why not? Each piece is well built and  has excellent details. I know I certainly appreciate all the offerings for the men of Second Life since it can be difficult to find quality items on a budget.  This is the Snowflake Turtleneck Sweater, and you can pick it up for a little hunting and 1L as part of the “Dreaming of a White Christmas” hunt. If you’d rather not hunt, the gift is available for 25L on the Hunt poster. There is also a beautiful white snowflake dress in the same prize box for the ladies.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Jake
  • Signature – Gianni

Break Down

Break Down

There are times when a gentleman must take matters into his own hands. No matter your breeding or status, when your airship’s boiler goes out… you pull on a sturdy pair of gloves, secure a tool box and sort things out.

ContraptioN, obviously understands this because this month’s free group gift for the L’Homme readers is all about getting your hands dirty yet remaining a gentleman.

This is the Thibaut waist coat “work” and it’s a generous free gift from ContraptioN. The ‘work’ designation being the soot and grime around the sleeves. Signs of honest work, if you ask me.  Equally well used are the leather gloves I’m sporting. These are the ‘Dapper Dandy’s Gloves’ also designated ‘Soot’.   Both of these gifts will be available until the next round of L’Homme.

Sizes Included (waist coat)

  • Belleza Jake
  • Belleza – Freya
  • Maitreya (+ a Flat Chest Version)
  • Signature – Gianni
  • SLink Male Physique
  • SLink – Hourglass

Sizes Included (gloves)

  • Belleza – Jake

When the days turn to Autumn

When the days turn to Autumn

Hey FabFree, we’re halfway through the week  already! I swear, with all the fairs and Hunts and events, I’m going a little batty! 😉  Yeah yeah, I know… it was an easy laugh. But when I saw the latest Fabulously Free Group Gift from Mirus Designs… how could I not go batty for it?

The Bat Blouse is so cute! I’m betting it will be my standard outfit for the rest of the season! I just love the deep purple color and… Bats! Plus, it’s all free for the FabFree Group and our group is, of course, free to join! You can just slap that display board and join, easy peasy.

So you can show off those abs, guys. There is also a small section in store for the guys with some very nice designs. Definitely worth checking out, gentlemen.

A little warmth

A little warmth

 

It’s starting to get cool in the mornings, a sure sign of Autumns arrival. Plus, just about everywhere, pumpkins and ghosts and those enormous bags of candy in the stores. I have to admit I am having a great time finding, and sampling, the bags Juli thinks she’s hidden around the house.

Speaking of finding treats, you will be hunting down a piece of candy for the Boo! Bunny Hunt to get your treat. This is the men’s gift from Ink Blots and it’s just one Linden plus some hunting. The warm jacket and sweater come as one convenient piece making dressing easy and quick. The details are of good quality and move well once it’s on. Something a lot of men’s wear struggles with. The Boo! Bunny Hunt runs until October 31rst so don’t delay.

Hurry up and wait

Hurry up and wait

Why do I always end up waiting? Usually I’m waiting on Juli. This time is no different. She told me… ordered me to hurry up and go find something appropriate for Halloween so of course I did… now I’m just cooling my heels till she gets dressed.  I may be here for a while.

Well, Bats

At least I was able to find something “Halloween – y” for the wait. And got it on the cheap. This is the ‘Bat Shirt’ from Dragonmoon Designs. And it was just 1L as part of the Monster Mash Hunt. There are quite a few men’s prizes on this Hunt so don’t miss it.

At the end of day

At the end of day

Okay, FabFree… all together now… “THANK YOU ALINE!!!!!”

And why, you may ask, are thanking Aline? Other than the fact that she is an awesome person, and a really awesome Blogger, annnd she keeps us all going hereon the blog?  Because A few days ago she popped over and poked me about the Engine Room Event. I had forgotten all about it! She even said “There’s a ton of stuff there that just scream “Juli!” And wow, she is so right! I even found a gorgeous Gacha set for Gabe.

SteamFlirty

This is the “Abigale Set” from Devious Minds. It’s a 75L per play Gacha at the Engine Room. I can’t tell you how much I love this set. The flirty ruffle skirt, the blouse with full sleeves, and boots and the corset are all separate pieces. Plus I was lucky enough to pull the Rare Corset. In all there are a ton of colors for the items and I may be heading back to see if I can pull a couple more colors. Yep, I like it that much!

Sizes Included

  • Maitreya

Now Pru showed y’all a bunch of the free gifts at this anniversary round of Engine Room. I had to include a couple more in my outfit. First are my really cool sun glasses. These are the “Round Glasses” from Art & Gears and they are free to everyone in the free to join Second Life Syndicate group.  My cute gears choker is another free gift at the event from Rabbithouse.

Get Wrecked

Gabriel’s handsome shirt  and vest combo is another great Engine Room Gacha. This is the “Gentlesteam” from Rekt. The shirt and vest are done as a combo but each shirt comes with either a black tie or a tie the same color as the vest. His steams and gears new arm is also from the Gentlesteam gacha. The mechanical arms come in several metals and in the left or right versions. All that for an easy 50L per pull.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza Jake
  • Legacy

The Engine Room runs until October 20th!

In the Dark

In the Dark

The end of the month is swiftly approaching and I’m NOT ready! There are still so many Hunts to hunt and freebies to gather and events to go to…  I better just quit whining and get to it! One of the Hunts I love, despite the hair tearing, eye crossing, sneaky little hiding cubes, is the Twisted Hunt. It was actually the first Hunt I ever did way back in the early days. So yeah, I got tossed into the deep end first thing. BUT… The Twisted Hunt, in my opinion, has the best prizes of all the hunts.  And Gabe and I are showing off just a few of those awesome prizes today. But there’s a time crunch… The Hunt ends on the 30th!

Dark Elves

This round’s theme is Drow elves! I’ve always wondered what it’d be like to be one of the Dark elves and doesn’t Gabe look fantastic as a Drow? I’m lovin’ his yummy ears!  Ahem, anyway, our slick new Drow skins are from Jeanette’s Joint. The prize contains four skins for the ladies: Brows and Browless and “explicit” and modest. The guys get two skins – Brows and Browless. The skins are Baked on Mesh and look fantastic.

Rogues

Our new outfits are also Twisted prizes. These are the “Drow Rogue” outfits from Valkyr. The ladies outfit comes with the top, pants and boots while the guys garb is a tunic and pants. Both of the builds are just gorgeous and I foresee these outfits staying in our closets a long time!
