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!

Patio Time

Coming soon to Fab Free

I’ve been chilling at the patio at Arthouse Night Cafe and enjoying my afternoon with some coffee and cake. This sure is a nice break from being stuck inside for so long! It was important that I looked great for the first time I saw my friends in months, so I got together a great outfit from Insomnia Store , and other finds from Ascendant, Piixcys Store, and Luxrebel.

Lucky Boards at Insomnia

Insomnia Store currently has 8 lucky letters out. I am wearing the golden Sexy Lazy Blouse & Harness Bra and the Vintage Denim Shorts. Their clothes are so nice and this set was too adorable not to share. To get the lucky boards, you must join their free group and click the board when your letter comes up.

Sizes included:

  • Freya
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass

Free Nails!

Ascendant also has a whole load of group gifts- all gorgeous nails which are free with their free group. Right now, I am wearing their most recent pride rainbow nails gift, but there are many past gift nails up for grab as well. The nails fit Maitreya, Belleza, and Legacy bodies.

More goodies from the Stay at Home Club!

I’ve been working my way through some of the July gifts from the Stay at Home Club. They have archived the gifts by month on their website, which is super helpful! I got these great black heels as a stay at home gift from a new-to-me store, Piixcys Store. As all stay at home gifts, these shoes are free.

Sizes included:

  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

Gorgeous Lips

Finally, Luxrebel has some gorgeous lipsticks out as gifts for members of their VIP group, which costs 100 L to join. These lipsticks fit Genus heads only and they come in nine lovely shades.

Thanks for reading, Fab Free!

Stroll Along the Harbor

Coming soon to Fab Free

Hey Fab Free! Have any of you been over to LSR Moda recently? They have a bunch of offers, freebies and gifts out right now, and I took advantage! After shopping there, I headed over to Maison d’amitie to go on a walk along the harbor- it was a lovely summer afternoon stroll!

A 250 L credit gift!

Right now, you can get a free 250L credit  if you are a member of the LSR Moda VIP group, which costs 99L to join. I purchased the lovely Sexy Elvi Shirt in this lovely dark purple shade. The shirt dress includes plain, polka dot and stripes versions, which I really liked. The credit offer ends soon, so go quickly while it’s still available as a gift!

Lucky Boards Galore

There are a tonne of new lucky letters at LSR Moda as well, and there are some lovely new outfits and shoes on the board. I matched the Elvi Cherries Mules with my top and loved the combo. These shoes are one of their many lucky boards which can be played by any LSR Moda VIP group member. Have fun getting lucky and playing the boards!

Have a great time, Fab Free!
