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


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!

Out with the Reindeers

Coming Soon to Fab Free

Hey Fab Free! How’s your holiday season going? Christmas on SL is the best, and I am loving all the gifts and advent prizes so far! We are spoiled. Today I am hanging out with the reindeers and I am going to show you some wonderful free and 1L gifts from various hunts around the grid so far. Come check out these awesome finds!

Cozy Sweater & Slippers

The first stop today is Ari Pari! What a great shop this is, and they have some wonderful Christmas hunt items out. Like all of their hunt items, this sweater comes with a colour change hud. I like the cute little white Christmas trees on it. It is only 1 L on the Candy Christmas Hunt 4.

Under the Snowflakes

These really cute and animated snowflakes are free on the Peace on Earth Hunt. This is the prize from EscalateD, one of my favourite hair stores. These are really cute and I love how they are animated. They rotate around your head. You can wear 1, 2 or 3 of them at a time. 

Another hunt prize at EscalateD are these awesome winter horns. They are only 1 L on the Grumpy Santa Hunt 4. They can be changed to many colours and they are beautiful- much needed for any horns or fantasy lovers out there. 

Magika is Free

Finally, I wanted to mention something I stumbled upon a couple weeks ago which appears to still be going on. Magika‘s group is currently free to join. I grabbed their group gift hair, called “Plenty”, for only 1 Linden with the group tag on. I love this hairstyle. I also grabbed the other group gifts and some of the group-only sales that range from 50-85 L per hair. 

Thanks for reading, Fab Free!

Dress How You Want

Comg soon

Hey Fab Free! I am going to show you a pretty wicked outfit today. Everything in my photo here, except the head, body and boots will only cost you 2 linden to make this outfit. What a steal! One of the greatest things about SL is that we can dress however we want, when we want. We can even wear summer clothes in the middle of winter!

Look great for only 2 linden

Both the hair and necklace I am wearing right now are 1 Linden each on the marketplace. One of the gifts is the DMT Necklace, and the other is a hairstyle called Breakthrough. Visit the Marketplace and grab these for only 1 Linden per piece!

And now for the great outfit…

If you like clothing that is almost not there, this the perfect outfit for you. The shorts are just adorable. It’s nice to wear such summery clothes, even if it is winter now.  Both the lovely white top I have on and the denim shorts are free lucky board prizes at Seniha. Simply join their free group and then wait for your letter to pop up! Easy-peasy!

Thanks for reading, Fab Free!

I have already gotten a lot of compliments about this hairstyle! It is so cool. And the good news is that it’s only 10 L at Mad Circus 6. It includes a style hud and two colour change huds. What an awesome 10 L gift from EscalateD! There is a 10 L special in every booth at Mad Circus.

The other spooktacular item I am showing off today is the lovely Dancing Skeletons Dress, a hunt prize from Ari-Pari on the Hunt on Haunting Hill 4 Hunt. This is a wonderful dress and it only costs 1 L.

Crazy Cat Lady

Crazy Cat Lady

I don’t think anyone really sets out to become a “Crazy Cat Lady.” I think it’s something that sort of claims you. From the first kitten/cat that enters your life, the seed of cat lady-ness (or in some cases, crazy cat guy-dom)  germinates. I also think that from then on other cats know you’re now a “cat person” and they find you. Whether it be a stray kitten meowling for help in the parking lot where you work, or adoption ads from animal shelter pages on social media… they find you. Suddenly you find yourself in this situation, crouching on the floor with several of what you now refer to as your fur babies.

All the kitties aside, I do have some fantastic freebies to share with you. My top is a free group gift by UNA at the Itty Bitty Titty Committee event. My stylish bun is a freebie as well. It’s a free gift at SHEGO. Keep reading for details about both free finds, while I herd these silly cats into the kitchen for some food and water.

UNA

Yes, you read that right. There is an event titled Itty Bitty Titty Committee. It’s geared toward the recent influx of chest sizes choices with some of the female bodies. The important part here is that UNA has a free group gift at the event. This cute top is free to all UNA group members. There’s a group joiner at the IBTC event, and the UNA group is free to join. This top comes in quite a few sizes, and has a color/texture change hud with lots of options. There’s also a cool glowing UNA logo on the back of the shirt, and an optional glowing UNA pin that attaches on the front of the shirt.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara (Petite, Flat, Original), MeshBody Legacy (Perky, Original), Belleza Freya, Slink Hourglass

SHEGO

Once again I’ve been doing some exploring in Second Life, and I’m glad I did. I came across a hair shop called SHEGO that has this ultra cute top bun for free. There’s no group needed, just purchase the hairstyle from the vendor for zero linden. This style comes with an Omega applier hair base, and a system layer hair base. The bun part of the style, and the side wisps are mesh.

Cool in the Shade

Coming Soon to Fab Free

Hey Fab Free! I am rocking a new look today, and it’s always fun to experiment with different fashion styles. I might as well rock it in the shade in the sun while I still can.

Nitro Panic

First off, you can grab this awesome ripped dress by Nitro Panic on the Marketplace. I love this dress, and it comes in a few pattern options. I love the “Babygirl” version of the dress the most. This amazing dress only costs 1 Linden.

Sizes Included: 

  • Maitreya
  • Isis
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Legacy

(red) Mint

I found this hairstyle as a free group gift at a store I’d never been to before, (red) Mint . The group gifts are scattered throughout the store and you just need the free group to grab them all. This hairstyle I have on was my favourite of the lot, so enjoy the gifts from (red) Mint if you haven’t tried them before!

Thanks for reading, Fab Free!
