Fab Free Designer Friday 2.0 – Skin Within

Happy Friday Fab Free Fam! I think the summer is a natural time to make yourself over, if you’re so inclined. Things feel fresh, bright, and new this time of year and I think a lot of us want to feel that way too. I love the infinite ability Second Life gives us to personalize, create, and recreate our individual looks. For this post I’m happy to tell you about a sweet little skin shop called Skin Within.

At Skin Within you’ll find female skins, and eyes to enhance your avatar. What makes this skin shop a little different is that their focus is on Bakes on Mesh (BOM) layer skins. They also offer tattoo layer makeup options, brow choices, and several skin tones. The eyes at Skin Within are Lelutka and Omega appliers.

The Store Group 

Skin Within has a free-to-join store group. Group members will get a 20% discount on purchases made while wearing the group tag. There is also a current free group gift skin. Her name is Mila and she includes BOM layers, and tattoo layer makeup options.

Fab Free Group Gift 

The free Fabulously Free in SL group gift at Skin Within is a full set of eye appliers. The set includes 12 “Dreamy” eye choices in Lelutka and Omega appliers. The Fab Free group will always be free to join. Happy shopping Fab Free!

Seaside Retreat

Seaside Retreat

MMmmm smell that salty air and feel that ocean breeze. Nothing like getting out of the city and to the coast. Here in Second Life that is. I took Pru on a little seaside retreat to get outta the house. We needed a change of scenery and to be free of the fur babies for a while. As the sun came up, I let her sleep in. I took a walk down to the nearest coffee shop and got us both a refreshing cold brewed boba treat from Movement.

My head skin is Drake by Stray Dog in tone 04. The sweet lined cut bread is from OKARA. The trending porn stache Mustache is from none other than Mister Razzor. This cool oval shades are made by Decision and come with a colour changing HUD for all the parts. This nautical type necklace, well choker comes by way of Lapointe & Bastchild it’s unisex. Even the ladies are welcome to grab it and wear it. Ascend has this nice draped shoulder shirt that comes with a 10 colour changing HUD.

I’m not usually one for wearing tattoos. When they’re free and look this good, I had to tell you all about it. The tattoo “Hidden Inside” comes in an appliers HUD for Omega, Belleza, and Maitreya. There is also a TMP installer. IDTTY even included BOM layers as well. The pearl type bracelet is by Dope+Mercy. It comes in white and black for both wrists. We all know this store is great with accessories.

Serving Lewks

Hey there Fab Free. I did like a lot of us are probably doing during our quarantine, I played with makeup! Before I could do that though, I completed the free in-store “Lot Makeup Hunt” at Dotty’s Secret. I also picked up the free Stay at Home Club gift from Xxxtasi. After all, no “lewk” would be complete without a cute manicure.

There are 6 makeup items (think lipstick, and a compact) hidden around the Dotty’s Secret store. These 6 prizes are free, you just have to find them and click them and your gift will be delivered. Each free gift has a different set of makeup appliers and classic/BOM layers. I was able to create all 3 of the above makeup looks using the gifts from the Lost Makeup Hunt at Dotty’s Secret.

Appliers/Layers Included: Classic/BOM layers, Catwa Appliers, Omega Appliers, *Some also include a Lelutka Applier

Dotty's Secret - The Lost Makeup Hunt + Free group membership

Last. but far from least, I picked up this very pretty and very subtle floral nail applier set by Xxxtasi. It’s their free Stay at Home Club gift. It includes 3 manicure choices, and is an Omega/Empire applier.

Even in a cute pink dress, I’m an absolute heathen, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. Hi Fab Free! I hope your week is going well.

The Damned


Pyromancy

Demons manifest through arcane ritual and hell fire. What is this? Has the world been flung into a darkness where horned devils step into the light? Well, perhaps nothing quite that malevolent, however there are a few days left of the Twisted Hunt where you can find a lot of what Blue and I are wearing, as well as some of the demonic décor Blue used to create this fiendish atmosphere for free. You just have to hunt them! The hunt ends on September 30th. I also picked up one of the group gifts at Pendulum to help accessorize my devilish appearance. Since there are several of the Twisted Hunt prizes included in this post, I added the vendor photos I could find below. To get more details about each of these finds, keep reading. Otherwise, feel free to scroll down for full credits. and thanks for being here!

The Twisted Hunt Gifts 

Roped Passions

The hooded top and side-split skirt I have on is the free female gift on the Twisted Hunt at Roped Passions. This free gift comes in the following sizes: Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Maitreya Lara. Additional accessories are available on the Twisted Side Hunt, but are not shown in my photo.

Attitude is an Artform

The long sinister looking horns Blue has on are also free as part of the Twisted Side Hunt at Attitude is an Artform. Once you find them of course! These demonic horns come in 3 size variations.

Elemental

Blue’s facial tattoo is also free for the Twisted Hunt. You can hunt it down at Elemental. This free hunt gift comes in an applier for Lelutka, Catwa, and Genus heads.

- ELEMENTAL - Damnation Face Make-Up Advert

Tone 2

Blue’s haunting eyes are Tone 2‘s free Twisted Hunt gift. They come as standard eyes, and as an Omega applier.

Sweet Revolutions

The free Twisted Hunt prize by Sweet Revolutions really has to be seen to be truly appreciated. This “Damned Conjure Circle” pose/prop is being used as awesome demonic background imagery in my photo, however it has 4 poses included.


~*SR*~ Damned Conjure Circle

Pendulum Group Gift 

Last, but very far from least, I simply couldn’t resist this group gift at Pendulum. The gift includes the delicate almost snowflake-like face gems/tears I’m wearing along with optional side embellishments worn near the temple. These pretty gifts come in 3 metallic colors. The Pendulum/HCXII group has a one time join fee of 100 linden, and there are several group gifts available.

Pippilotta Delicatessa Windowshade Mackrelmint Ephraim’s Daughter Longstocking


Pippilotta Delicatessa Windowshade Mackrelmint Ephraim's Daughter Longstocking

Hello Fab Free’rs, I’m feelin’ a little nostalgic today. The new group gift hairstyle by No Match with it’s braided pigtails sticking strait out made me giggle, but it also reminded me of some of the female literary characters from my youth that I so admired. Girls such as Anne Shirley, Caddie Woodlawn, Laura Ingalls, and of course Pippi Longstocking all held a special place in my little-girl heart. I remember them being brave, intelligent, imaginative girls who knew who they were and what they wanted. It felt good to be reminded of them today. So inspired, I paired the youthful hairstyle with the striped sweater-dress Fabulously Free in SL group gift by Sevyn East and ran with it. I hope you enjoy this fun look as much as I do.

The Hairstyle – This hairstyle by No Match is their current free group gift. Called No Socks, it really made me think of being little and barefoot in the springtime. It comes with a full fatpack of hair colors, and can be resized. Also included are system layer hair-bases, and a set of mesh head hair-base appliers (Omega, Lelutka, Catwa, TMP). You’ll need to wear the No Match group tag to get this gift. The current group join fee is 50 linden and there are quite a few past group gifts available on the second floor.

The Sweater Dress – I think it’s the stripes that made this off-the-shoulder sweater dress seem so youthful to me. It’s the current Fabulously Free in SL group gift by Sevyn East. I could also see it paired with some tall boots. It comes with a color/texture change hud that has 4 preset options, all of which are striped. To get your copy of this free gift just wear your Fab Free group tag and click the gift vendor at Sevyn East. If you’re not a Fabulously Free in SL group member yet, you can join for free.

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

Rebel Rebel, put on your dress

Rebel Rebel

Hello Fab Free’ers!  I am really excited to share with you the first of hopefully many fantastic freebies.  I’ve read the FabFree blog daily for years and it’s a real honour to have been accepted as a FabFree blogger.  I have always loved hunting down freebies, cheapies and bargains, and will enjoy it even more now that I can share my finds with you all!

Talk to me!

Feel free to contact me if you want any more details on something I post, or just to chat, or to tell me about some awesome freebies, cheapies or bargains you think I need to know about!

Redheads should never wear green

Who says?  Honestly, this is one of those silly rules I grew up hearing.  Redheads must steer clear of wearing anything green.  Pfft.  Sometimes rules are just meant to be broken, and this is definitely one of them, and that is why Zsa is a proud to be a rebel!

Beautiful simplicity

Even though I disagree with the redhead/green rule, I am a big believer in the old adage that less is more, and this beautiful gown, one of the newest group gifts from Hilly Haalan, demonstrates this perfectly – so simple, so classy.  Hilly’s group gifts are always such a treat.  Nadia is a beautifully flowing gown that gives you an amazing silhouette, reminiscent of the movie stars of the 40’s.  As she often does, Hilly has generously given us not just one colour but a whole hud full – 15 colours in fact.  So, in effect, 15 beautiful gowns for free!

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Standard Large & Standard Small (alpha included)

What is Zsa wearing?

I Used to Sail the Deep and Tranquil Sea

Pirate Life For Me
Ahoy There Fab Free Mateys! I hope everyone is doing well. Thanks to the Skull n Bones Hunt, I’ve spent the last day in pirate gear, and I’m not at all mad about it! Kastle Rock Couture has this playful pirate outfit as their Skull n Bones Hunt prize for the ladies. I also read all about the hunt happening at This Is Wrong from Alison’s post “Follow Me Down to the Water.” So of course, I had to participate in that! This red full body tattoo is one of the several 30L items you’ll find. I hope you like this fantasy pirate look as much as I do!

The Outfit – When I say outfit, I mean outfit. This Skull n Bones Hunt prize from Kastle Rock comes with the boots, the skirt, the top, and the hat. There is also a matching men’s pirate outfit. You’ll find this 2 linden hunt prize is on the Rum Runner path of the Skull n Bones hunt. The prize is just 2 linden, and you’ll be searching for a little red starfish. The skirt and top also come in a “risque” version which is slightly transparent. The shoes and hat come in a single size, and there is an alpha layer with the boots. P.S. This outfit is suitable for Classic Avatars!
Hint – “I’m stuck in limbo between Mens and mini dresses, at least there are places to sit… Maybe I’ll have a glass of wine. ”
Skirt & Top Sizes Included: Classic (xxs – L), Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Maitreya Lara, TMP, Tonic (Fine, Curvy), eBody (top only)

The Tattoo – This is the last day of the 30L hunt at This is Wrong! To find the items just click the vendors and look for the items marked 30 linden. I picked up a few things, but there are several items marked down, including some for the guys. I love a good full-body tattoo. This one is not only full body, but has face appliers for Catwa and Lelutka, and comes in fresh and faded versions. Also, check out the Lucky Letter boards while you are there. There’s no group needed for those!
Body Appliers Included: Maitreya, Belleza, Slink, TMP

Here are the details, enjoy!

In the Cool of the Pool

In the Cool of the Pool
Hello again Fab Free’rs. I’m happy to see you. Truth be told I couldn’t think of a better way for this would be mermaid to spend the afternoon than floating in the cool of the pool under the shade of a palm tree. Speaking of mermaids, the Makeover Room gift from Entice is very mermaid-y. I know that’s not a word, but I couldn’t find a better way to describe this cute gift. Also, I found the perfect summery pink pout at Pout!. I went ahead and included the vendor ads for each of these free gifts so you can see the colors and options. Keep reading for the where and the how.

The Dress – Honestly, I’m not sure if this blue and purple gradient little dress with the pretty scalloped edges is a dress, a swimsuit cover, or what, but I like it a lot. Wear it how you please, this versatile gift is a free gift for Makeover Room group members. In addition to this pretty one-piece version, there is a two piece bikini style top and skirt version. Both are equally cute and equally revealing, especially the skirt. This free Makeover Room group gift from Entice comes in several sizes. To get yours head over to the Makeover Room and join the free-to-join Makeover Room group. The gift is waiting at the entrance to the event space.

Mesh Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass, Belleza (Isis, Freya)

The Pout – Where else but Pout! would have just the right pink lipstick applier?! Pout! has a lipstick applier set as their current group gift (there are past gifts also available for 1 linden). The free “Bubble pop” lipstick set has 5 lip colors in several applier options. The Pout! group is free to join at this time. You’ll find the Pout! group gift to the left as you enter the store.
