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


Sarcasm

Sarcasm

Alright Fab Free’rs, I have to say I really am not in to the whole concept of a New Year resolution. I’ve made them in the past, and struggled to keep up with them, and ultimately ended up feeling guilty or disappointed in myself if my resolution didn’t work out. I think we tend to put too much pressure on ourselves to become the best brightest shiny new version of ourselves just because it’s the start of a new trip around the sun. I am all for self betterment, I just think it has to happen in my/your own time.

ZFG

For this post, this group gift hoodie top from ZFG (Zero F*cks Given) just really summed up the concept of a New Year resolution for me. Sarcasm is also my favorite kind of ‘casm, whatever that means. lol The ZFG group is free to join, and this snarky shirt is free with your ZFG group tag. Since I know my cell phone covers up part of the text it reads “My New Year’s resolution is to reign in my sarcasm. Like that is going to happen.”.

Sizes Included: Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Maitreya Lara, Tonic (Curvy, Fine), MeshBody Legacy

Zombie Suicide

These glasses. Moons, stars, oversized lenses, these glasses from Zombie Suicide called out to me “Pru, you must take us home with you…”. Really, a must-have for me. They are the most recent group gift at Zombie Suicide, and the group has a 100 linden join fee. There are also past group gifts available. This gift has a color change hud as well that allows you to change the color of the frames, and the moon/stars so you can match these babies with everything.

Not Your Valentine

Not Your Valentine

Alright, I wouldn’t go as far as to say that I am anti-Valentines Day, but it’s not my favorite. While I love the idea, and all the romantic sentiments, I can’t help but dislike how manufactured it can feel. Commercialism, am I right?! That said, the new group gift at POUT! spoke to me. I also picked up a pretty fur coat by Entice super inexpensively on the Marketplace. Keep reading for more detail

POUT! 

I’ve always loved makeup, not as a necessity but rather as a fun even artful form of self expression. This Valentine-ish eye makeup look is a free group gift from POUT!. The gift comes in appliers and BOM layers in the red color shown. The POUT! group is free to join, and there are several previous group gifts still available.

Appliers and BOM Layers Included: Catwa (Applier,BOM), Genus (Applier, BOM), Lelutka Evo HD Applier

Entice

Second Life is the one place I feel good about wearing a fur coat. I happen to think this one by Entice looks amazing on. The textures are fantastic. I picked this one up for 75 linden on the Marketplace. There are several other colors available also, at 75 linden each. Also, this coat does work for mesh and classic avatars!

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, TMP, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Fitmesh + Alpha Layer

Camp Quarantine

Camp Quarantine

Hello hello Fab Free! Yes, you are seeing things correctly, I am wearing a top made from masks. Honestly, even though it does make me laugh, I do kind of hope that this will be the way to wear masks one day sooner rather than later. My quarantine fashion moment is courtesy of a new group gift at Worldwide. Also, Petrichor has two new group gifts, one of which is this delicate white mandala-like tattoo. You know how this works from here, I’ll give you more details below, and full credits at the end. Have a great weekend Fab Free’rs!

Worldwide 

Sometimes it’s good to find a little comic relief in whatever way you can. Yes, this top by Worldwide is good for a bit of a giggle, but it’s also cute for a warm sunny day. This “Quarantina” bra top is a free group gift at Worldwide. You can join their group for free as well. The top comes in the classic blue and white paper mask colors shown only, and quite a few sizes.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, MeshBody Legacy, Belleza Freya, KUPS, Kupra, Slink Hourglass

Petrichor

I love this pretty upper-arm tattoo from Petrichor. It’s one of their most recent group gifts. The Petrichor group is free to join, so no reason to pass this one up. The tattoo comes in BOM layers only with a regular version and an “etched” version. Also, a little side note, Petrichor is formerly The Plastik, so that’s the group you’ll be joining.

Grotesque

Grotesque

Much like the macabre, though a little less romantic, grotesques have been part of art and architecture for centuries. It’s a theme I’ve always romanticized myself, that concept of finding beauty in that which would otherwise be called ugly. Now, before I get too melancholy in my musings I’ve got some pretties to share with you, one of which is this face tattoo by Nar Mattaru that reads “Grotesque” under my right eye. Alongside my finds at Nar Mattaru, I picked up some group gifts from rotten, and torment via Harajuku. Keep reading and I’ll give you all the what and how of things.

Nar Mattaru

Nar Mattaru has a handful of 10 linden offers in the same spot as their group gifts. These 10 linden finds do not require a group tag to purchase. I picked up the face tattoo that says “Grotesque” under the right eye, and has an almost cute little fly under the left eye. The tattoo comes in BOM layers, and an Omega applier with fresh, normal, and faded options.

Also at Nar Mattaru is this smudgy black eye makeup. This eye shadow look is called the “Effortless Smoky Eye” it too is just 10 linden. The grunge-rock princess part of my personality just couldn’t pass this one up. This eye-makeup comes in a BOM layer, and an Omega applier.

rotten

I am kind of in love with this lip gloss from rotten. It’s their current group gift, and the group is free to join. I love when I come across amazing makeup finds. Makeup is my favorite way to customize my look without changing my skin. This free lippie set by rotten includes 6 color choices, each with 4 style/opacity variations. In the package you’ll get BOM layers only. Technically these lip colors were made to be worn on Genus heads, but I think they look fantastic on my Catwa head.

torment

If you head over to the Harajuku event you can pick up these gorgeous earrings for free from torment. They are waiting at the torment booth at the Harajuku event. You will need to be wearing the torment group tag. The torment group is free to join. Then while wearing your torment group tag, click the “gift” sign at torment’s spot at Harajuku. These lovelies come in a black/gold version (shown) and a silver/gold version.

Sweet but Psycho

Sweet but Psycho

Oh hello there Fab Free’rs! Welcome back to the blog. I’m not plotting anything sweetly sinister, I swear. I am however happy to share a few more of the Kustom 9 event gifts with you. My long-sleeved top and this doughnut clad knife are both free at Kustom 9. You will need to join the free-to-join Kustom 9 group and wear the group tag to claim your free gifts.

AsteriodBox

I love the look of this top by AsteroidBox. The thin stripes, slightly pointed sleeves, and leather straps give it a lot of style. There’s also a well done oval cut-out in the back of the shirt for some added detail. This top is free at Kustom 9, just wear the Kustom 9 group tag.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara/Petite, Slink Hourglass/Petite, MeshBody Legacy/Perky, Belleza Freya

Zenith

This could-be threatening knife stacked with doughnuts and tied with a sweet bow is free at Kustom 9. It’s made by Zenith and has a hold pose that can be turned off or on by touch menu. It also has a hud with a few options to color the doughnuts, and the ribbon.

I’m Lovin’ It!

I'm Lovin' It

If you have not made it out to Kustom 9 yet, you need to go! I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again, there are so many things happening in Second Life right now! Pun intended, I really am lovin’ it!

The current round of Kustom 9 is an Anniversary round! That means tons of free gifts from the participating designers. For this look I picked up the free Kustom 9 group gifts by Tram, ILAYA, Amitomo, and Hangry.

ILAYA

I am a loungewear kind of girl a lot of the time, especially when I know I’m not going to be leaving the house much. This free Kustom 9 gift set by ILAYA is the quintessential t-shirt and shorts with the cutest Halloween print. I also really like that this set is not in the typical Halloween colors. You’ll need the Kustom 9 group tag for these gifts. The group is free to join.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara/Petite, MeshBody Legacy

Amitomo 

The green cord choker is the free Kustom 9 gift by Amitomo. This pretty choker comes fitted for Maitreya Lara bodies, and the single green and gold version shown. I know it’s hard to see in my photo (my bad!) but the gold lettering reads “moonchild.”

Hangry

Second Life really allows me to be the junk-food junkie I would love to be in real life. lol These french fries are the free gift at Kustom 9 by Hangry. For once I didn’t have to worry about my fries being unhealthy! Also, the bento hold pose is part of the item.

Tram

Finally for this look Tram has cute wispy bangs as their free Kustom 9 gift. The bangs are meant for the hairstyle I’m wearing which is also for sale at Kustom 9, however since they come in a Tram color fatpack you could wear them with other Tram hairstyles.

Breathing Space

Breathing Space

The sun is setting on another weekend, but that doesn’t mean the fun has to stop, lovely readers!  Take some time today to fit in a bit of a moment for yourself with a space to breathe, a little treat, and a bit of gratitude.  Those three things may just help you feel like the weekend is extending a bit!

Gachas on the Horizon

I know some people are vehemently anti-gacha, but I am not one of those people (which is a problem in itself).  I’ve mentioned before on the blog that there are some gachas that are really worth the pull, because no matter what you do, even if you pull once, you’ll end up with an awesome item.  Amitomo consistently puts out extremely wearable gachas that I invariably fall in love with.  And, with my hand on my heart, I promise you all that I only pulled three times.  I swear!  I ended up with the top and skirt, the sweater over the shoulder, and even the rare hair.  At just 69 per pull, you’ll for sure end up with something awesome!  This gacha is sized for Maitreya bodies and can be found over at Kustom9.  Here’s the vendor pic so you see what I mean!

Good luck, and don’t forget to find that special moment for yourself today.

Hey there Fabulous Readers!  Have you had a chance to stop in at the Shop & Hop Event yet?  I’m making my way through the gifts folder and I found a couple of really cute accessories I wanted to tell you about today.  You’ll need to make two stops, but they should be easier to get into today with the crowds dying down a touch, and with any luck the TP slurls will take you right to the free gifts!

A sweet snack

This little Candy Cane Chibi Fearie Nom by Epic is soooo cute!  I am not sure why it’s cute to snack on faeries, but … it is!  When you add it to your mouth, it will even emit winter snowflakes.  How fun is that?  A conversation starter for sure, and it’s all yours for free…  just for visiting Epic at Shop & Hop!

A holly jolly scarf

I am in love with this Satin Merry Christmas Scarf that you can pick up as a free gift at the Erratic display at Shop & Hop.  It’s resize so you can adjust it to fit just right, and comes in two prints as shown in the ad below!
