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

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.

The Coven

The Coven

In much need of some distraction, I have been so ready for the weekend. Thank goodness for Second Life, am I right?! Weekends are often a favorite time in-world. Not only are there more of us online, there are some pretty cool sales for my fellow shopaholics and I to indulge in. This weekend you won’t want to miss the Happy Weekend offer by Muniick. I’ll tell you all about it below. Also, No Cabide catered to my affinity for sweaters with an adorable sweater skirt and top combo group gift. As always I’ll give you the details further on. Have fun Fab Free!

Muniick

I have to to say that I’m often impressed with what Muniick has on sale for Happy Weekend. This weekend you can pick up their Llewellyn Dining Collection for just 60 linden. The set is beautiful, and includes the table, chairs, place settings, placemats, candles, chandelier, and the potted plant. Most of the items have texture change options, and the seating has quite a few sit animations. Do not miss out on this one!

Happy Weekend - 60L 9 Piece Dining Set

No Cabide

It’s finally started to get colder where I live and I am hence feeling desire for the coziness of sweaters and cold-weather fashion. No Cabide put out a very cute sweater top and skirt combo as a free group gift, and I’m absolutely enjoying it. The top and skirt can be worn together or separate, and the color/texture change hud has solid and plaid options to choose from. The No Cabide group has a one-time join fee of 75 linden.

Make a Scene

Make a Scene

Hello there Fab Free’rs! We’re a week in to January and I’m already in need of some retail therapy. Surely I am not alone in this. January group gifts to the rescue! Seriously though, I feel like a badass boss babe in this group gift dress by Byrne, and these killer group gift sunglasses by Psycho Barbie. Keep reading for info on how to get both these fantastic gifts, and please excuse me while I go make a scene.

Byrne

I’m a big fan of the colorful brocade-like pattern on this dress from Byrne. It comes in this “berry” version shown, and a second equally awesome “purple” version. I’m also really digging the sleeve length and the mock-turtleneck. The Byrne group is free to join, and you can pick this free group gift up in the past notices. Also, there’s a matching men’s shirt group gift.

Sizes Included: Belleza Freya, Slink Hourglass, Maitreya Lara

Psycho Barbie

While scrolling through Flickr I came across the ad for these sunnies by Psycho Barbie and I had to have them. Had to. They are the latest group gift at Psycho Barbie, and they have quite a few style options for the lenses. Also they have resize scripts, hallelujah! The Psycho Barbie group has a join fee of 100 linden.

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

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.
