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


Summer in December

We are all used to Christmas in July, so how about Summer in December! After all, it’s Second Life! And it’s warm somewhere on the globe, right? There are plenty of beaches where you can show some skin, so I’ll show you where to find some skin to show!

Free Skin Day [FabFree] 1

Al Vulo is an old favorite of mine, and this classic skin called Celestial – Diva Olive is FREE with your FREE group join if you stop by the store. It’s an oldie but goodie with dramatic make up and glossy lips that just make you want to pucker up! It comes with appliers for WowMeh, Phat Azz, Slink hands and feet, and Lolas too!

And check out the hair?! Diva for sure! Though it’s actually called India and is a Midnight Mania Board Prize currently at Besom. This gorgeous hair is yours FREE if you slap the board and lock it down, and the Besom group is FREE to join!

Free Skin Day [FabFree] 2

If you are looking for a skin that has mature facial features, great details on the body (just look at that navel!) and lovely hip bone shadowing, then this gift skin called Lorna at New Faces is for you! This is another FREE gift with your FREE group join at the New Faces main store. Their are also some lovely make up gifts out there for you to pick up as well! This skin comes with a FREE sample shape as well, and if you want appliers you can pick those up in the store for reasonable prices.

Want to travel back in time instead? I found this great little gem of a necklace at Pixel Box. It looks like a compass but will also hold a photo. I popped into their main store and was able to buy it for just 50L. Many offerings their in store were 50L or less. And there was tons of gorgeous stuff. Well worth the stop!

Free Skin Day [FabFree] 3

Deesses Boutique is offering a lovely group skin at the moment called Anika. It includes appliers for Slink hands and feet and there are appliers in store for all of your other applier needs! This skin is FREE with your group tag. The group is 99L to join, but includes monthly gifts – there have been several times lovely mesh clothing has even been included in the monthly round up of goodies! – so the small fee is worth your while.

Free Skin Day [FabFree] 4

Are you loving this skin in the picture above? Me too! Stop by LoveMe Skins and it is yours FREE with your group tag if you join the group FREE too! This gift box contains the skin Kathleen in two skin tones (Tan or Sunkiss – Astrid is wearing Sunkiss in the picture above), two cleavage layers, two lipsticks, a free shape, and appliers for Slink hands and feet! What a deal!

Free Skin Day [FabFree] 5

We all know the girl who just can’t get a tan no matter how long she is in the sun. Yup! That’s the skin I’m sporting for this last great find! If you join the Mystic Canvass group FREE and stop by their store, you can pick up this gorgeous FREE group gift skin called Xen. Xen comes in 4 skin tones (Astrid is wearing Snow – the palest of the four) and the gift package includes appliers for Phat Azz, Lolas, Slink hands and feet, as well as two cleavage options for each skin tone and two eyebrow options (Classic or Dramatic). This would make a terrific roleplay skin if you are not wanting that ‘needs a tan’ look! 😛

Were you admiring my beach wear? For just 75L per piece, you can dive into this deal on the MarketPlace and get this lovely Classic Bikini Bottom in Blue Stripes and/or the hawt to trot matching Halter Bikini Top, also in Blue Stripes. Just Because has swimwear (most all the pieces for 75L each) in different styles and colors for mix and match wear! A steal!

Silks and a New Face Save the Faery Queen

When I was a child I was terrified of the tooth-fairy — and of fairies in general actually. I remember other children dressing up as fairy princesses for Halloween, and all I could think of was how deceived they all were! Fairies were horrible, malevolent creatures that stole your teeth and made you stay a child forever! (Wasn’t that what Tinkerbell did to Peter Pan?!) I could certainly think of nothing worse!

5 July 2015 [1]

In fact, my fear of fairies never really went away until I became an adult. And interestingly enough… it turned from fear to something akin to a malevolent dislike. I saw them as creatures of deceit and even in lore, they really are.

In traditional Irish Lore, the word “Faerie” comes from the word “fay,” which is related directly to the Fates — and some believed they were women who influenced and overlooked the births and lives of men… and not always in very nice ways (obviously). Those who upset the fair folk, were said to be doomed to suffer eternal bad luck unless they made it right by the fairy they had had the misfortune of angering.

But fairies, of course, come in many shapes and sizes… and can be good or evil (though even both the good and the bad can be equally capricious according to ancient lore) and in the traditional lore all fairies were very powerful.

So is it any great surprise, that so many in Second life would wish to recreate the magical look of the fair folk for themselves? I think not! And this week, I give you a chance to do it without having to steal from the winged ones themselves!

The first thing you need is the outfit I am wearing. Because no self-respecting Queen of the Fairies would be caught without first-rate attire! So head to ~Soedara! Once there, join the group (don’t worry it’s FREE) and look for the teleport to the gift area.

There are actually quite a few very nice gifts in ~Soedara!‘s FREE area, but the one I picked up for my look in these pictures is called the Precious Haifa Silk. When you enter the FREE area, you’ll find the gifts in Vendors. You must wear the ~Soedara! group tag to get the vendors to work. You do have to pay the vendors 1L to get your items, but they will immediately refund your 1L back to you — thus making your item a FREE gift. You may find yourself there for a while going through all the choices! There are many beautiful gifts to be had!

And if a picture is worth a thousand words and the eyes are the window to the soul… then your last stop should definitely be New Faces skin store for their FREE gifts. New Faces seems to be a secret saved among friends and it’s one worth sharing. The group is FREE to join and there are currently three FREE group gifts available. I am wearing their current gift skin called Lorna as well as this beautiful eye make-up called Erotica (there are several shades in the make up pack but I chose blue) and both are currently up in the store as FREE gifts. She has all the appliers you need if you use mesh bodies and attachments and at very reasonable prices.

One of the things that really impresses me about New Faces is the detail put into the realism of the skins. These are not “Barbie Doll” skins. Though her line is still small compared to some of the larger more well known designers, she has a couple of ethnic skins available, and many of her skins feature (purposeful) ‘flaws’ such as moles or irregularities on the bodies (such as tiny vein markings and/or bone shadows). There are other realistic details on the bodies that are just too many too mention.

I spoke to the designer myself a few months ago (long before I was a FabFree blogger for her to have any reason to treat me as just another customer) and she mentioned that she is considering a men’s line at some point in the future (so cross your fingers gentlemen!). I can’t say enough about her with regards to customer service and courtesy. Hands down she was helpful, polite, and personable. And there were others in the store, and I watched her treat each of them with the same courtesy. I look for this lady to be up and coming!
