Proper Pinup


Seaside PinUp

Welcome to the blog Fab Free! It was a warm bright sunny day for me in Second Life today, and I felt every bit a proper pinup girl at the beach. To get the look I had some help from a few of the many free gifts in the shopping regions of the Second Life 16th Birthday event. I picked up what felt like a metric ton of freebies, however for this post I want to share with you the SL16B gifts by Narcisse, ICONIC, and Pyscho Byts.

First, the bright red polka dotted monokini is the SL16B gift by Narcisse. It comes in this single color, and is fit for Maitreya Lara only. To get yours, all you need to do is head over to the Narcisse shop in the SL16B Aurelian region and pick it up for free.

Next up, the long side swept hairstyle is the free SL16B gift by ICONIC. It comes in a fatpack of colors, and has a style hud that lets you flip the hair so it’s either over the left shoulder or the right. You’ll find it waiting for free at the ICONIC shop in SL16B’s Tinseled Region.

Finally, the reason for the trio of photos is to show you 3 of the 6 static poses in the “Lili” pose set by Psycho Byts. Each of the six poses is in what I would call a pinup style. The set has individual poses, and a pose hud. This set is one of 2 free gift pose sets by Psycho Byts just waiting to be picked up at SL1B’s Golden region.

Thanks for reading, here are the details:

Let’s Do the Time Warp Again


After Hours

Hello There Fab Free! It’s good to be here. I feel like I have had such a weird week so far, though I couldn’t tell you what specifically was weird about it. Thankfully I have been able to do some shopping therapy, Fab Free style! Belle Epoque has this cute wiggle dress out as one of their group gifts, and I picked up a beautiful upper body tattoo inexpensively at Speakeasy for a modern pinup look. I hope you enjoy it!

The Dress – I love the mix of retro and modern present in this dress by Belle Epoque. The fabric has an almost latex like shine to it. This fun dress is a free group gift to Belle Epoque group members. The Belle Epoque group has a one time join fee of just 10 linden. This dress comes in a single Maitreya fit only.
Modern Pinup

The Tattoo – This beautiful floral upper body tattoo is just 50 lindens at the Speakeasy main store. I love how the beautiful roses come around the shoulders and connect in a bow. Also, I think the sphynx kitties near the shoulders are adorable! The tattoo comes in an Omega applier only with 3 opacity options.

Here are the details!

Sweet as Pie

Sweet as Pie
Hello There Fab Free’rs! I hope everyone is having a wonderful day. I can’t believe the month of September has already almost passed us by. There are several September events and Hunts coming to an end. One of which is Limit8. If you haven’t picked up all the fabulous free gifts hurry and grab them before the event ends. I picked up this cute lattice style apple pie by Your Dreams. It’s one of the many free Limit8 group gifts. The Limit8 group is free to join, and I’ll add some links down below to some of the previous Fab Free posts featuring Limit8 gifts just in case you missed them.

That skillet style pie makes me think of southern style apple pies. I can almost smell the cinnamon and spices! It almost makes me want to bake one myself, almost. Instead, I’ll just let Pru pretend in her virtual kitchen. It just so happens Blacklace also put out a group gift recently. Usually I wouldn’t think of baking and lingerie together, but the cute vintage feel of this bustier and panties set got me thinking of those vintage style pinup images you often see. The Blacklace group gift comes in several sizes and has an alpha layer for classic avatars. Also included is a color change hud with 8 color choices. The hud will allow you to color the bra separately from the panties so you can mix and match. The Blacklace Lingerie group has a one time join fee of 99 linden. This group gift set can be found in the past group notices, or picked up at the main store.

Sizes Included: Standard Mesh (xxs – L), Maitreya Lara, Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus)

More From Limit8 which is ending soon!

Special Snowflake

Special Snowflake
Hey There Fab Free! I have been lost in the land of Real Life for a few days, and while it was fun, I’m glad to be back. Sometimes there’s nothing better than cozy familiar places. Fab Free is definitely one of my cozy familiar places. I miss it when I’m gone. In the spirit of “I’m-happy-to-be-back” I’ve got a quick post with new gift from Dead Dollz to share with you.

It’s not a secret that I love pin-up styles. So needless to say, I was uber excited to see this tie front sweater group gift at Dead Dollz. I love the big gold polka-dots and the pale pink sleeve cuffs. The best part by far however is the glittery phrase scrawled across the back. Yep, it says “Special Snowflake.” Love it. The gift comes in a single mesh size specifically for the Maitreya Lara body. The Dead Dollz group has a one time join fee of 250 linden. You will need to wear a Dead Dollz group tag to get this gift.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

VeronicaHello There Fab Free’rs! I hope your weekend was a fun one. I had a fantastic weekend, and now I’m happy to be here where I get to share my latest freebie find with you. The credit for this find should really go to Love however. She spotted the outfit at Sn@tch during one of her recent shopping excursions and told me about it. She knows me so well! I do love retro pinup styles, especially when they are a little sassy like this one.

Why be a Betty When You Can be a Veronica? 

Okay so really I think Betty was just as awesome as Veronica, and Archie was lucky either of them paid him any attention! This outfit just screamed Veronica to me, even though it’s name is Gloria. Before I go off on a tangent about the dynamics of the Betty, Veronica, Archie love triangle and confuse everyone further, I’ll just get to the details. The fully mesh Gloria outfit is absolutely FREE at Sn@tch. There’s no need to join a group or wear a tag, just head over to  Sn@tch and check out the FREEbie area Love mentioned in her recent post “A Whole New Sn@tch“. In the box you’ll get the capri pants, the cardigan, and a cardigan/tank top combo in 5 standard mesh sizes, and of course the matching alpha layers. Additionally the cardigan/tank combo comes with the tank top in black or red. Sn@tch your FREE outfit, and tons of other fantastic freebies and inexpensive items at the new Sn@tch main store.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Raspberry Sorbet I Think I Love You

Raspberry Sorbet

It’s Friday Fab Free’rs and I couldn’t be happier! Though the week went by quickly, for me anyway, it was still quite a week. Thankfully I have my excursions in Second Life to relax and enjoy some “me” time. While on said excursions in the world of SL, I came across the Sanarae event, and the many Lucky Boards there. As mentioned in my previous post, the free-to-join Sanarae group is required for the Lucky Boards. This adorably flirty dress from a shop called Sorbet is one of the many lucky board gifts at Sanarae.

I love love love the rock-a-billy pinup look to this dress! I really can’t say anything negative about this fully mesh dress. The colors are great, and I really like the flare of the skirt. This dress by Sorbet is honestly my personal favorite of the FREE Lucky Board prizes at Sanarae.

To emphasize the rock-a-billy part of this pinup look, I picked up the April group gift from EMO-tions. This retro pony with bandanna and rolled bangs is just too perfect. The EMO-tions group is FREE to join, making this fun hairstyle FREE as well. It comes in the blonde tones, and 4 color options for the bandanna. Also you can pick up a set of bangs, and some hair-base appliers for FREE at EMO-tions. Don’t forget to wear your group tag!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Monarch

Sweet PeachHello Fab Free, I hope you’ve had a good start to your week so far. Today I wanted to share with you this sweet peach colored corset by Epoch and these cute dangle earrings from ClarityMoon. The corset by Epoch is their 10 linden Dark Side  event gift. I love that this corset is fully mesh and still has the look of laces in the back. I also like the pretty detail of the lace pattern in this inexpensive gift. Not to mention peach is such a nice color this time of year. The gift includes the corset in several mesh sizes, so there is certain to be one to fit almost anyone well.
Sweet Peach Close To go with the corset I added these cute group gift earrings from ClarityMoon. I think they compliment this sweet and cute look nicely. These earrings are also nicely detailed and include a color change hud with several options to change the color of the dangle-y hearts. Right now ClarityMoon has several current and past group gifts available to all group members, which makes the 50 linden join fee a steal of a deal!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Melusine & Nephty

Melusine & Nephty

I ran across a sweet little spring event today called the “Spring is Here Gacha Fair & Event.” It runs until April 19 and there are about 20 designers participating. Almost every booth has a gift set out priced at 1 to 3L. I picked up one gift in particular from what I think will be an up and coming designer from the quality of this multi-applier tattoo! This Nephtys Tattoo by Pin*Up is an upper body tattoo in layers for Maitreya or Omega and comes in 3 different opacities (light, medium, and dark).

I also want to mention my skin… yes I went red today! Now that the crowds are cleared, and before it is too late… I stopped by Genre and picked up Lumae’s special edition Eirtae – T3 – Shell // Melusine skin. For just 100L you get every applier imaginable as well as both a plain and freckled version at Genre for a limited time. It will disappear soon, so if you love this skin as much as I do, act fast!

Pink Plastik Pin Up

Plastik Pinup

I hope everyone is having a great weekend so far. I decided to take a little time away from the snow and the cold and enjoy some time in the sun wearing this fantastic FREE subscribo gift from BYRNE. The crop top and skirt combo Pru has on is the most recent subscribo gift sent out through the BYRNE subscriber. This is just the kind of outfit that reminds me of all the things I love about summer. While sweater weather is certainly still one of my favorite kinds of weather, there’s definitely something to be said for warm summer afternoons and evenings. BYRNE has used an amazingly detailed texture with a beautiful snakeskin pattern for this outfit. The raspberry red color gives it just the right touch of girlishness. Already a member of the BYRNE subscrbo? No problem! Just click the subscriber and check the message history. Keep in mind that just like regular group history, subscriber history is only available for a limited time!

Plastik Gift

It’s always fun when gifts seem to go together perfectly. These beautiful earrings from Plastik are a recent FREE group gift and I think they look great with the FREE gift from BYRNE. These detailed mesh earrings are a New Year gift from Plastik, just join the group and check past notices. Both the large and regular size are part of the gift. I kind of want to wear them with everything they are so pretty! At this time the Plastik group is FREE to join as well. Don’t forget past notices are available for a limited time!
