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


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.

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.

Fab Free Designer Friday – 10/14/2016 – Glitter

Glitter New It’s that Fabulous day again! As if Fridays were not reason enough to be cheerful, it’s been fantastic adding in these fun Fab Free Designer Friday posts. The purpose of these posts is to let our wonderful Fab Free community know about the amazing shops that are part of the Fabulously Free in SL experience. This week’s shop is Glitter! The Glitter brand is yet another brand that has been in Second Life for quite some time. You’ll find mostly mesh and classic system layer women’s clothing at Glitter. The style has some range from casual to more formal attire as you can kind of see in the photo above.

Along with the black and gold Glitter logo, the photo shows the New items wall inside the Glitter main store. On this wall you’ll find current event exclusives like the ones shown for Swank, as well as current Glitter group gifts. There are little group join signs below the group gifts, and nestled among the row of past group gifts that are all still available. You’ll find an additional group joiner on the little white desk as well. The Glitter group is FREE to join, so these Glitter group gifts are genuinely FREE, you just need to wear the group tag.
Glitter Gifts Directly across from the desk on the inside wall you’ll find some additional information, and a few more group gifts. Yes more! These gifts require a different group, like the one exclusively for Fab Free group members! Just look for that colorful Fab Free sign, wear your group tag, and click the vendor for your Fabulously Free in SL exclusive gift from Glitter. You probably recall seeing this gift blogged here by our very own Sheidey. So take a moment to stop by the Glitter shop and take advantage of the fantastic gifts and perhaps even do a little shopping while you’re there!


The Wicked Witch of the South

The Wicked Witch of The South Hello There Fab Free’rs, thanks for coming by. It’s my favorite month of the year, and I decided to get a little witch-y with my style because why not?! When else can you get away with an over-sized witch hat as an accessory? In all honesty, the moment I put on this October subscriber group gift from BYRNE, I knew I wanted to wear a hat with it. I didn’t plan on a witch hat at first, but I’m quite pleased with the way things came together. Speaking of October group gifts, these adorable heels are the current group gift at Empire.  And of course I found an inexpensive lipstick by Stellar, that I couldn’t live without. I hope you like this spin on a classic witch look as much as I do!
Wicked Witch of The South Starting with the gift from BYRNE, my photos really do not do this mid-length dress justice. There are little details like the high neck, the full sleeves, and the buttons up the front that give the dress an elegant vintage feel. This group gift from BYRNE comes in the rust color shown and a blue color, both in several standard mesh sizes. Also included with this Fabulous FREE gift are a matching pair of goggles for each dress which are not shown in the photos. To add this lovely dress to your wardrobe, you’ll need to join the BYRNE Style group in world, and check the past notices. The group is FREE to join, and you’ll find a men’s gift as well!

I don’t think I could have picked a more darling pair of strapped heels to go with this dress. These lovely shoes are the October group gift at Empire. This gift is generous as always in that it includes shoes to fit Maitreya, Slink, TMP, and Belleza mesh feet. Also included is a color change hud that allows you to change each individual part of the shoes, from straps and buckles to sole. These shoes are FREE to all group members, simply join the Empire VIP group and wear your tag. The Empire VIP group has a one time join fee of 499 linden.

Finally, I cannot resist the final touch of a glittery nude lipstick from Stellar. This dollarbie applier gives a subtle shine and tint that is quite pretty and perfect for everyday wear. A fun Marketplace find by Stellar, the lip-color works with Lelutka mesh heads, Omega compatible heads, and includes a classic system layer for non-mesh avatars. Once again, I love the slight change makeup layers allow.

I genuinely hope you enjoy this look as much as I do! Here are the details.

This shop is primarily nail appliers, manicures and pedicures for classic system feet and hands as well as mesh varieties. Hello Dave has been part of Second Life for several years and is well known for their quality polish, not to mention their generosity when it comes to group gifts. The wall pictured above is the main wall at the Hello Dave store, and where you’ll find any and all information about the Hello Dave store, gifts, and events. As you can see the Fab Free exclusive group gifts are waiting for you in the upper right hand corner!  I think it’s worth mentioning that the Hello Dave VIP Group is FREE to join. Also, group members get 10% store credit with each purchase, as well as 250L store credit on their rez day.
Hello Dave Halloween Hunt Currently Hello Dave is participating in a few hunts and events. There are also group gifts and special offers to be had. As previously mentioned, you’ll find all the information on the wall at the landing point inside the main store. The stack of boxes is a special Halloween Exclusive set of nail appliers anyone can purchase for just 55 lindens. In further celebration of this Halloween season, Hello Dave is also having a hunt.

Needless to say there are plenty of gifts and goodies waiting for you at Hello Dave, so don’t forget to pay a visit to this Fabulous shop!


Fall Feelings

Fall Feeling Hello there Fab Free’rs! Can you believe it’s almost October!? I’m so ready for all things fall I can barely contain my excitement. Needless to say when I saw this incredibly girly coat from Vintage Touch, I had to share it with you. The coat is the current group gift at Vintage Touch and it comes in standard mesh sizes and one fitmesh. I love the style and the pattern of this coat/dress. The rose pattern reminds me of vintage English Tea Rose patterns that always catch my eye. The gift also comes with some stockings in a classic system layer, and an Omega applier that I did not show. I chose to throw on a pair of jeans and boots to wear the gift as a coat rather than a dress. To add this pretty coat to your own wardrobe, you’ll need to join the Vintage Touch in-world group. The Vintage Touch group is 1 linden to join.
Fall Feeling Close To go along with my fancy new coat, I picked up this pretty pink crystal necklace from Imbue. There are several group gifts available at Imbue, this simple yet pretty necklace is the most recent. Like tea roses, I’m kind of a sucker for crystals. The necklace comes in a rigged and unrigged mesh version, and you have the option of either a gold or silver pendant. Both are strung on a thin black cord. To get this gift at Imbue, simply join their updates group in world. There is a one time fee of 50 lindens, however the gifts currently available are worth the fee.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Goodbye Summer Romance

Goodbye Summer Romance Hello There Fab Free’rs! Isn’t it exciting, our Fab Free blog has been bubbling with activity recently and it’s been marvelous. I’m excited to see all the posts from the new additions to our Fabulous team. For now I have some fantastic September group gifts from Avi-Glam, E.Vary, and Sevyn East I’m excited to share with you, starting with this beautiful pink paisley romper from Sevyn East.

Sevyn East has a few group gifts available for FREE to all group members, and I think this summery romper is the most recent of the gifts. In true nerd form, the paisleys were the most exciting part of this romper for me. It comes in fitmesh sizes, as well as body specific sizes for Slink, TMP, Maitreya, and Belleza. Also included is a color change hud so you don’t have to wear pink if you’d rather not! The hud lets you pick between pink, teal, yellow, and violet. The Sevyn East group is FREE to join, so no reason to miss out on this or the other FREE gifts.
Freckles or Not Another FREE group gift for the month of September comes from Avi-Glam. These pretty pale green eyes are FREE to group members, and the group is FREE to join. You’l find this FREE gift on the counter in the center of the Avi-Glam main store. Included with the mesh eyes is a hud to adjust the size, and let you switch “full bright” on or off.

Finally, E.Vary has put out another beautiful skin for FREE to all their group members. This skin is named Yuli, and as you can see in the above photo, she has the option of being freckled or not freckled. Included with this gift is a classic system skin, a freckle tattoo layer, a cleavage tattoo layer, 4 shapes, and an applier hud with options for Catwa heads, Omega compatible heads, and Omega compatible bodies. The E.Vary group, like all the groups in this post, is FREE to join. Also, there are a couple of other previous group gifts to be had.  You might need to join the in-word subscriber group as well to get this gift (I joined both), which of course is also FREE. You’ll see the group gift vendors in front of the desk at the E.Vary store.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Freak Show Fashion

Freak Show Hello Fab Free! It’s great to see you again! Don’t let the creepy monkey or the dramatic lighting fool you, the gifts I have to share with you aren’t creepy at all, rather they are quite fabulous! For this post I have three items to share with you, a group gift dress from Blaraby, a group gift necklace from ECCO, and a pair of group gift shoes from Empire.  This is one of those times when several gifts seem almost meant to go together. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!
Freak Show Close Ups There are several group gifts to be had a Blaraby, but this “Bambi” dress really caught my eye. I love the style, and the color. This mesh dress comes in standard mesh sizes and fitted sizes for Slink Physique, Slink Hourglass, and Maitreya Lara. To get this lovely belted dress, head over to Blaraby and join the group, then click the gift vendor while wearing your group tag. There is a one time group join fee of 50 lindens to join the Blaraby group. Don’t forget to pick up the other group gifts while you’re there!

ECCO also has several group gifts available to all their group members. The most recent is their August group gift. This pretty little necklace from ECCO has detailed swallows and a single gemstone. The gift includes a color change hud to change the metal color and the gemstone color. To pick up this sweet gift, join the in world group and click the vendor while wearing your tag. You’ll also see a shelf full of previous gifts near by. The ECCO group has a one time join fee of 200 lindens.

Finally, I’m honestly never disappointed in the group gifts from Empire. September’s group gift is this laced up over the knee heel in two special colors. The gift includes a pair of shoes in red, and in purple to fit the bodies and feet for Slink, Maitreya, Belleza, and TMP.  Also included with this group gift is a color change hud to adjust the color of the sole, and the metal parts of the shoes. There is a one time join fee for the Empire group of 499 lindens. However, the fee pays for it’s self in the form of an always stellar monthly gift.

Black is My Favorite Color

Black is My Favorite ColorHello Fab Free’rs! I hope you’re having a great week so far. I got back Monday evening from a long weekend visiting family, and as much as I loved seeing everyone, I’m still bushed! lol Thankfully I was able to steal a little time to myself today and share with all the Fabulous Readers some great freebie finds. Bargain hunting always makes me feel better!

Starting from top to bottom, this cute chin-length bob hairstyle with bangs is a FREE group gift at YumYum. Technically it was the May 2016 gift, but it’s still available and still adorable. This gift includes a color-change hud with 3 options. All 3 colors have this same dark-blonde/light-brown base color with a blue, purple (shown), or pink color dye at the ends. The hud also allows you to resize the hair to best fit your head shape. The YumYum store group is FREE to join as well! I’d run over to YumYum and pick this one up while it’s still available.

Next, I felt like this FREE dress by Apple May Designs at The Free Dove was a great transition piece for the changing season. It is short and cute like a summer dress, with half sleeves and a pretty textured black material perfect for fall. Not to mention, I think this casual black dress could be easily dressed up or down, and worn with just about any shoe style you wanted. You’ll find this dress strait back on the wall at Free Dove. The dress comes n standard mesh sizes with a matching alpha.

Finally, this bold mandala style leg tattoo is a FREE group gift at Reckless. There are actually several FREE group gifts at Reckless currently, but I liked how this one looked with the AMD dress the best. This beautiful tattoo comes with an applier hud that works for Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza bodies, a second hud for TMP bodies, and classic system layers. There’s also an option for fresh or faded versions of the tattoo. The Reckless group is 100 lindens to join, making this detailed tattoo a steal! Don’t forget to check out the other gifts while you’re there!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Tropical Daydream

Tropical All weekend it’s been raining in my real world. All weekend I’ve been dreaming of somewhere warm and tropical to have an adventure! Thankfully I have Second Life to help my daydreams seem more real. Recently I found out about a little shop called LaGeeny. Even better, I found out about their several group gifts and camping chairs! Also, redMint has an August group gift out, which I love, and a little something extra from NSP Florals.
Tropical 2 This FREE dress from LaGeeny just might be the perfect casual summer dress. It looks light and comfortable with great details. Thanks to a texture change hud with several pattern and solid color options this dress is ultra wearable and could go with just about any style. One of the solid colors is particularly pretty! I chose this playful red floral pattern because it is not only pretty, but it played into that tropical vacation I’ve been dreaming of! The dress is fully mesh and comes in several sizes. How do you get it? First you’ll need to join the LaGeeny in world group. The group is FREE to join. Then you’ll need to camp out in the group only camping chair for 45 minutes. I know 45 minutes sounds like a long time, but if you’ve got someone to chat with while you wait, the time goes by fast. Thankfully I had Love in my IMs keeping me company! There are also some non-group camping chairs and several group gifts available, so take a moment to stop by LaGeeny and take advantage.

Sterling Silver hair is all the rage right now, and I have to admit I am totally on board with this trend. I love the silvery blue tones I’ve been seeing. This long side-swept hairstyle is the most recent FREE group gift at redMint. I’ve always liked redMint hair because it has a unique style to it that you just don’t see anywhere else. The redMint group is FREE to join at this time and there are a few previous FREE group gifts also available. In the package with this lovely gift you’ll find a regular size version of the style, and a larger version for the busty ladies.

Sometimes just the right accessory makes an outfit. I think this is true with the gorgeously done hibiscus flower by NSP Florals. The flower can be resized via touch menu, and costs just 25 lindens on the Marketplace.

Here are the details, Enjoy!
