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.

Technicolor Rainbow

Technicolor Rainbow

As much as I love winter, I have to admit this outfit has me daydreaming about warmer weather. Hello Fab Free’rs, I’m glad you’re here. For this post I’m really excited about the new group gift at MicRo, and Demicorn has out a group gift that I don’t know how I missed and can’t wait to share with you. Keep reading for all the whosits and whatsits and where and how.

MicRo

I really like this pleated skirt by MicRo a lot, mostly because it’s not a skirt but rather a skort. What’s a skort you ask? Skirt + short = skort. That’s right, there are mini-shorts under this mini-skirt. This free group gift has a color change hud with 4 solid color choices to pick from. Also, the MicRo store group is free to join.

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

Demicorn

I love a good lippie, in any life, and especially Second Life. This pretty matte lip color is part of a group gift applier set at Demicorn. The “Sugarplum” set has a range of lip colors in berry reds and blue-violets. The Demicorn group has a join fee of 100 linden, and there are quite a few group gifts available.

Appliers Included: Catwa, Genus

Foxy Lady

Foxy Lady

Welcome back to the blog Fab Free’rs. For this post I’ve got some January group gifts to share with you that have me feelin’ foxy. Maai and MINIMAL both have free group gifts for the month of January that you will not want to miss. Keep reading for the details and more of my banter.

Maai 

Yes, that little fox pun was absolutely intended. I do think there’s sometimes a stigma around being an adult and wearing cutely patterned or styled clothing. I however don’t particularly care for them. I love the little fox faces on this slip of a dress from Maai. Truth be told when I put this dress on I got that Jimi Hendrix song stuck in my mind. “…And you know, you’re a sweet little lovemaker, Foxy…”

The Maai group is free to join, making this group gift completely free as well. All you need is a group space.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara/Petite, Kupra, MeshBody Legacy/Perky, Alpha Layer also included

JANUARY GROUP GIFT

MINIMAL

I’ve picked up several of the MINIMAL group gifts in the past, but I think this January group gift backdrop is my favorite. It has such a feeling to it that I’m not sure how to describe. It’s simple enough to serve as a setting for just about any sort of scene, and has the right feel for something modern romantic or old-world fantasy.

The MINIMAL group has a join fee of 250 linden, and there are past group gifts available as well as this January 2021 group gift.

New Year New Kicks

New Year New Kicks

Hello Fab Free’rs! It’s a brand new year and a new opportunity to make the best of all the future has in store. I for one intend to hit the ground running, pun absolutely intended. At the start of this new year with all the possibilities ahead I definitely need a new pair of shoes. Semller has our feet covered with their most recent group gift, a limited time free group join, and group-only sale. From now until January 8th the Semller group will be free to join and group members will get a 30% refund on all purchases while wearing the group tag. Also, group members can pick up a free fatpack of the Megalodeon sneakers. They are unisex in that there are male, female, and unrigged sizes included. These detailed shoes at Semller can be completely custom colored via a detailed color change hud. The hud has the ability to color several individual parts of the shoe or all of it at once. There are also 10 presets to choose from if you don’t want to pick the colors out yourself.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Legacy (Male, Female), Signature Gianni, Belleza Jake, Unrigged

In the Bright of the Day

In the Bright of Day

Sometimes I swear I am the embodiment of one of those memes you sometimes see where there’s a girly princess on one side and a broody goth type on the other, and it suggests that each is one side of the same person. I identify with that meme so darn much! So here we are, dark and broody, but loving the bright wintery holiday season. Speaking of the up-coming holiday, this feather trimmed little black dress is a free group gift at COCO that would be amazing for a swanky Christmas party. Also, if you’ve gone and picked up the free Lelutka Lilly head Aline blogged here, you might want to check out the 60L Happy Weekend Sale at head applier/bom layer at Eudora Beauty. Keep reading and I’ll tell you all about both. After all, what better way to start the weekend than with a little retail therapy.

COCO

I love this dress by COCO. It’s simple, it’s elegant, and the feathered hemline is a welcome departure from the fur trim that is ever popular this time of year. It is also absolutely free with the COCO group tag. You can join the COCO store group for free, and pick up a few of the past group gifts as well if you haven’t already.

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

Eudora Beauty

Eudora Beauty has a gorgeous bom layer and Lelutka applier skin for the Lelutka Lilly gift head that you can get for just 60 linden per skin tone during the 60L Happy Weekend Sale this weekend only. The “Lillian” skin at Eudora Beauty is a head applier/bom layer only. You’ll need to purchase the body applier/layer separately. Which given the full price of skins, is still one heck of a deal! This skin will also work with any of the Lelutka Evolution heads. Also, I used the browless option that is included with this skin and wore one of the brow options included in the HUD for the Lelutka Lilly head.

Sing it Loud

Sing it Loud

With all the hustle and bustle for the holiday season being a bit different this year than years past, I find it even more important to take small moments to myself when I can. I like to stop and indulge in small things like decadent coffee and music that compels me to sing along. Whatever your little indulgences are, I hope you take the time to enjoy them. Speaking of indulgences, I have a few find to share with you. The Christmas argyle sweater I have on is a new group gift at ChicModa, and this pretty skin is a free gift at WoW Skins for the Mesh Body Friends group. Lastly, get a little extra Christmas spirit with these cute earrings from e.marie. They are on sale this weekend only. Keep reading for details about both and how to get them.

ChicModa

I really like when I find Christmas-y clothing that is more “winter” and less “red and green.” Not that I dislike the traditional colors, I just enjoy more variety. That said, this cute cropped sweater is free to all ChicModa group members. The ChicModa group is free to join at this time. There are also a few previous group gifts still available, and group-only lucky boards.

Sizes Included: Slink Hourglass, Maitreya Lara, MeshBody Legacy

ChicModa x Exclusive Group Gift

WoW Skins 

One of the most coveted freebies on the grid is a good skin. You’ll find this one for free at WoW Skins, all you need to do is join the Mesh Body Friends group. That group is free to join. Then while wearing the Mesh Body Friends tag, click the gift vendor and the gift will be delivered. The “Mandy” skin is BOM only, and comes in a single tone. Also, there are BOM body layer skins meant to best fit Maitreya and Legacy bodies.

e.marie

These fun festive earrings are the 60L Happy Weekend offer at e.marie. You can get them in a silver pack or a gold pack for just 60L this weekend only, so don’t wait! They have several options for the color of the bows, beads, and lights. There are also brightness controls, and different styles to wear them in. Will you be on the Naughty list or the Nice one? I’ll let you guess which list I’m on.

It’s Cold Outside

Cold Outside

Sometimes I am pretty certain I enjoy the fantasy version of cold weather much more than the reality of cold weather. As a southern girl I find I am just not cut out for all that a white winter entails. Virtual winter however is an entirely different story. I love the beautiful winter settings and the ever falling snow. I also love the excuse to have an extensive winter wardrobe. Beautiful Dirty Rich has out this cozy cropped sweater group gift, and my earrings and necklace are a stunning jewelry set gift by Cae at FaMESHed. Keep reading and I’ll give you more details, along with the how and where to get these fabulous gifts.

Beautiful Dirty Rich

I’m a sucker for a pretty sweater. This cropped cable-knit sweater by Beautiful Dirty Rich is free for store group members. Right now the B.D.R. group is free to join. The sweater is their latest group gift, and there are several previous group gifts still available. This fuzzy little sweater comes in quite a few sizes, and has a color change hud with 30 solid color choices. The hud will also allow you to custom tint the sweater. Honestly, it was hard to pick which color to wear!

Sizes Included: Belleza (Isis, Freya), Maitreya Lara/Petite, Slink (Physique, Hourglass/Petite), MeshBody Legacy/Perky + Alpha Layer

Cae

There are tons of free gifts at FaMESHed this round. To get them, you’ll need to join the FaMESHed event group, which is free to join. That said, the earrings and necklace I am wearing are together the free gift by Cae at FaMESHed. I love the classic look of this jewelry set, and all of the customization options. The jewelry has resize scripts for easy fitting, and a color change hud with 6 metal choices, and 15 choices for the gemstones.

Autumn Breeze

Autumn Breeze

As I’ve mentioned before I may not celebrate what at least in the U.S. is considered a traditional Thanksgiving, but I do believe very much in practicing thankfulness. I am thankful for autumn weather, for the beauty of the season, thankful for love, and for friendship. Honestly, the more I think on it, the more I have to be thankful for. That is a very beautiful and fortunate thing. I also am so thankful I have the opportunity to be here doing something I enjoy, sharing awesome finds with all of you.

Clawtooth

For this post I have some bitter-sweet news. Clawtooth is closing for good at the end of the month. Bubbles Clawtooth, the designer behind the store, sent out a lovely sentiment explaining their appreciation for all that Second Life has given them, and their carefully made decision to move away from Second Life and on to other projects. What does that mean for us? The entire Clawtooth store is on sale at 70% off from now through the end of November. I am not at all ashamed to admit I spent a few more lindens than I needed to picking up some of the lovely hairstyles that will be gone forever once Clawtooth closes. There is also a free holiday hairstyle with no group needed, and I saw at least one group gift. No group is required for the sale, and gachas are included. Most of the hairstyles appeared to be priced between 45 – 66 linden per color pack, and gachas were averaging at 25 linden per play.

Fabulously Free in SL Group Gifts

Also, I wanted to take this opportunity to show off a few of the fantastic Fabulously Free in SL group gifts. As I’m sure you know, the Fab Free group is free to join and there’s a full (continually updated) group gift list here of all the free gifts. I’m wearing the Fab Free group gift skin from 7 Deadly Skins, the gift choker from West End, and the jacket/shirt combo gift by Northern Sky Creations.

7 Deadly Skins

The free Fab Free group gift skin at 7 Deadly Skins is a cute freckled female skin called Genie. She comes in a “lights” skin-tone pack with BOM layers, and Omega appliers for body and head.

West End

The free gift at West End for Fab Free group members is their “Simple Little Choker.” It has resize scripts, and a color change hud with 17 color choices.

Northern Sky Creations

Northern Sky Creations has a comfy red and black plaid jacket with a black shirt under it as a free group gift for Fab Free members. The top and jacket are all one piece and come in the following sizes: Belleza (Isis, Freya), Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Maitreya Lara, MeshBody Legacy.
