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


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.

She’s The One

She's The One
Hello there Fabulous Readers! Ripley and I are back in a special edition, mid-week post to share another Fabulous Find which we discovered on one of our SL journeys.  Before I get into the details of my outfit, I’d like to begin with this sweet collection of poses from One Creations.  A free gift for Fab Free group members, this four pack contains static poses perfect for snapping photos or just plain looking lovely!  These worked fantastically with my Maitreya mesh body and were just right for capturing the perfect picture.  To add the “Body Language” pack to your pose collection, all you need to do is join the Fab Free Group (and with ALL the lovely FREE gifts, group members have so many benefits!), then teleport over to One Creations and give the gift board a tap.  To join the Fab Free Group, (free to join), copy and paste the following link into local chat in your SL Viewer, and click the group join link – secondlife:///app/group/020fa7af-444d-f54f-01e2-557ec06315fd/about .

After work tonight, while I was walking my fashion-seeking canine, he caught that oh-so-familiar scent of a bargain.  As I followed my furry friend, I wondered what his nose was leading me toward, and I was pleasantly surprised when he sat himself down and stared up at this Plunge Neck Skater Dress from the Culco Boutique.  The soft drape of the skirt and shimmering color of the fabric combine to create an alluring, feminine dress that is sure to please.  I love the way the horizontal band in the center accentuates the waist.  The gift contains appliers for mesh bodies as well as fitted mesh for classic avatars.  Best of all, this dress is free to Teleport Hub Group members.  There are lots of gifts available to Teleport Hub Group members, so the 10L joining fee really pays off in the long run.

After slipping Ripley a doggy snack, (I had to reward his hard work!), we headed over to The Free Dove to search for the perfect accessories.  There, just inside the front entrance, I spied the Twisted Hoops earrings display from Earthstones, and Ripley wagged his tail in approval.  Calleja Fairey first introduced Fab Free to these glittering earrings in her post here.  The gold and pearl hues of these free baubles accentuate the shade of my frock.  It’s hard to see the delicate texture of these earrings in my pictures, but trust me, they are gorgeous!

Next, I scoured my inventory, seeking a necklace to coordinate with my hoops.  Out of 100,000+ items in my inventory (after 8 years in SL, things have gotten a little out of hand there), you would think I could find the perfect match, but alas, it was time for more shopping.  Big grin!! From The Free Dove, we hiked over to Cae and tried our luck at the Whimsy gacha machine.  For 75L, you can win a necklace or earrings in one of 10 shades of beads with a color-change HUD that allows you to choose from 3 metal types.  Rip must be my lucky charm, because on my first try, the machine rewarded me with this charming Whimsy Necklace in Champagne.  Before I got that glazed “gacha” look in my eye, Ripley gave a gentle tug on his leash and led me off to Luane’s World, one of his favorite SL locations, to romp and play.  While he chased dragonflies at the water’s edge, I snapped these photos to share with you.

I hope the rest of your week goes well, and look forward to chatting with you again soon on Sunday.  As always, happy shopping!

~ Kat (and Ripley)

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.


Loki is wearing…

Body and Hands – Slink
Skin – 7 Deadly s{K}ins – Crowley fantasy gift (Free group gift/0L/group is 150L to Join)

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!
Coming soon to FabFree

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!

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!

It’s Spooktacular…

It's Spooktacular.... 2

Right now if you head to Swank events you can participate in the Spooktacular Goth Hunt (there’s a haunted house at the event to visit too). Loki and I hunted around and picked up the matching FREE lingerie set at the House of Ruby booth in Slink or Omega appliers for mesh bodies. Just go to the booth and look for the little black rose, buy it for 0L and unpack and you’re all set for a special evening.

I paired my lingerie set with the Fabulously Free Group Gift from Beloved Jewelry. This pretty gold and blue diamond drop necklace and earring set was a perfect touch to finalize my sexy look. It’s classic jewelry and would be lovely with any style of outfit. Think casual to gown to wedding… you wouldn’t have to wear lingerie of course.

Just join the Fabulously Free group in world by pasting secondlife:///app/group/020fa7af-444d-f54f-01e2-557ec06315fd/about in local and then clicking the link to join.

Teleport to Beloved Jewelry and pick up your FREE gift wearing your FabFree group tag.

It's Spooktacular...

As I mentioned before, Loki also stopped by Swank with me and picked up the hunt gift from House of Ruby. The men’s FREE gift is these glittery briefs in red which come in a Slink or Omega applier hud.

Loki paired his FREE briefs with an equally nice piece of FREE jewelry from Chop Zuey. Not long ago, he showed you one of the group gifts [HERE], but you can get the Gibraltar necklace in gold for FREE as a FREE to all gift for Fabfree members courtesy of Chop Zuey, no group required. As mentioned before, this necklace is resizeable, so though it is meant for men, it would make a nice ladies necklace too.

Reaching for the moon

Reaching for the moon

I don’t know about you dear readers but sometimes I use this blog as something of a destination guide. My fellow bloggers are such creative photographers that more often than not I find myself curious to see the sims that they’ve used as their backdrop. Follow your bliss is one such location and for this little adventure I’ve chosen to wear the aptly named Joy from Luzifee that you can get for free by joining the Fabulously Free in SL group. In the days of autumn oranges, browns, and golds, this smock dress will bring a cheerful dash of color to your Second Life wardrobe. It comes in five standard mesh sizes (XXS-L) and one fitted mesh size with a good alpha layer included in the package. Not only is the uneven hemline of the dress unique but I adore the lovely patchwork pattern in the front of this dress as well. Even with my steadily growing inventory, I can safely say I don’t have anything in it like this free offering from Luzifee. So! What are you waiting for? Follow these steps to getting this gift and more:

First copy and paste the following link into local chat in your Secondlife Viewer: secondlife:///app/group/020fa7af-444d-f54f-01e2-557ec06315fd/about

Second, click on the link in local chat and you’re done! Welcome to the group! Time to pick up some wonderful gifts!

I got lucky in finding the items to tie this whole look together. In the case of these boots, quite literally as I got them off the lucky boards at Sn@tch. Bring a alot a bit of a boots junkie I was ecstatic when I won the pair pictured. It was even more exciting when I discovered that there were a lot of options when it came to choosing the appearance of these boots as you can tint and texture different parts individually according to your fancy. There’s even the option to make the spikes shinier which I definitely did.

The hairstyle I’m sporting is one of the older ones from Truth called Roma and the good news is that you can get the color packs of all of the hairstyles upstairs in the discount area for only 50L. I’ve already a collection of hairs from this merchant and will certainly be sneaking up those stairs more often to expand!
