FabFree – Fabulously Free in SL

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


Cooler in the Pool

FF@15 Shining Bikini 7-17-2022_001 (1)

Happy Humpday! While everyone swelters in the overwhelming heat I humped on down to my little beach to keep cool. Of course I mean I tp’ed there cause it’s too hot to hump anywhere (keep your minds out of the gutter readers!). So anyway, I hope you are enjoying all of the goodies from FabFree at Fifteen Anniversary. It’s exciting to hear that our FabFree group is still going strong after 15  years. I have a theory about Second Life years. I suspect they’re rather like dog years. Does that mean that we’ve been around even longer? Someone help me with the math!

Not Teeny- Weenie But Still a Bikini

Staying cool can be hard to do but have no fear. Shining has this awesome bikini up for the FabFree at Fifteen Anniversary for only $60L! This style is ideal for those who want to show less skin, I don’t remember ever seeing details like this on a bikini top. I adore the retro look of the top with its’ crossed neck strap giving it a halter look. Included is a five color texture change hud.

Sizes for:

  • Kalhene
  • Reborn
  • Physique, Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Legacy
  • Kupra orig, Bimbo, Low
  • Isis and Freya

Think I’ll go throw a steak on the hood of my car.  :< )

See ya’ll later alligators!

Pride Never Stops

6-23-22 Pride things_002 edited

The end of June is nigh upon us. Pride never stops; it shouldn’t. It’s a choice you can make to support the LGBTQ+ community and remember the history of struggles to obtain basic human rights. My support comes naturally as I have long-time friends and family who are LGBTQ+. You’ve probably seen several posts about Pride @ Home and other events.

To help you show support there are a number of Fabulous designers who donated gifts for the Pride @ Home SL celebration. All of the gifts are Free but you need to hurry because the event ends on June 30th. Madame Aline, the FabFree boss lady, featured some of the event gifts here.

Showing Those Rainbow Colors

Ladies, how can you NOT love these items? I do love sparkly things! And the bright colors make me smile. I threw this look together with several gift items. Do I look a tad too festive to anyone? No way, never ever! Let’s get to it.

My delightful bodysuit is a Free SL19B gift from PrettyDeceased. It’s the Pride edition and it is so pretty & festive! It’s got the little side skirt attached. It also comes with starfish to cover up the boobies.

I didn’t wear the starfish because I wanted to add the crown and breast plate I picked up a couple of weekends ago from Synnergy.  I think the pieces go together quite nicely.

Bodysuit Sizes

  • Kupra
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Reborn

I rounded out my outfit with a group gift from StephaneL – the kick butt Mara Love Pride Shoes. Mara is sized for Belleza, Maitreya, & SLink. The StephaneL group has a $15L join fee. There are many gifts for group members. There is also a $500L gift card up for group members. If you’re interested check it out this weekend because I don’t know how long the card will be available.

If you haven’t made it to SL19B Shop & Hop or Pride at Home yet it’s time to get going!

Hop to it now!

Wanna Visit the Darkside With Me?

Telsiope Christallia edited 6-20-2022 _001

Bet you’ve never seen this darker side of me. Well maybe a little bit. Years ago in my early SL days I decided to delve into the leather scene in SL. Today I tripped back into the mode for this post and I had a blast doing it!

Pretty Sexy Thang

My outfit was a surprise from Telsiope’s Couture. It inspired me to do this post. The Cristallia leather outfit consists of the bodysuit, shrug, and boots. It’s a near perfect fit for the Maitreya Lara body; I only had to alpha the arms and armpits.  I love the way the bodysuit hugs my curves while covering up my bits. You can also wear this as a swimsuit. In fact, there is a blue version of the bodysuit available for $10L in the vendor.

Sizes

  • Belleza Freya
  • Maitreya

By the way, Telsiope’s Couture has a huge sale going on until June 30th! Go check it out. Caroline featured the shop in her post here.

Peace & Love,

Let Your Fingers Do the Walking

Sl19B Son!a Edge Petra Dress (1)

Going through the SL19B sims reminds of me of an old commercial for the Yellow pages phonebook. In the early 1960s an artist came up with the now famous slogan – “Let your fingers do the walking through the Yellow Pages” for the New England Telephone which was eventually bought out by AT&T. (btw, it’s an American thing as far as I know).

Okay, where was I going with this bit of trivia?? Oh yeah! Walking through SL19B is like walking through the yellow pages. I don’t know how your avatar moves but mine moves with me using 2 fingers to “walk”. Quit blathering and get on with it Cre!

Lovely Sparkles

Don’t you love it when you pick up free gifts, open them and find a few treasures? I was pleasantly surprised when I unpacked the SL19B gift from Son!a Edge. What a beautiful, well-crafted dress! The details and textures knocked me out of my socks. Petra comes in this pleasing shade accented with shiny sequins and gorgeous flowers.

Sizes

  • Belleza Freya Perky & Isis Perky
  • Maitreya & Petite
  • Legacy & Perky

Peau Neuve (aka New Skin)

Thanks to the WoW non-group Lucky Boards I’m sporting a new skin. When a “C” popped up on one of the boards I slapped it and got 2 shades of the Sugar BOM skin. I’m wearing the bronze version today. When you arrive in the gifts room you’ll also find several free gifts as well as gifts for FabFree and various other groups. There are also non-group lucky, mini-mania, & midnight mania boards.

Have a most splendid week Fabbies!

Marvelously Fab in Paris

Seven $55 Thursday Alena Ourfit_001 (1)

I’m feeling special today. How about you? I think we’ve been watching way too many episodes of Project Runway at home. Today’s outfit kind of reminds me of some of the fashion creations the contestants design and fabricate.  The challenges on the show can run from making an elegant gown in luxurious fabric to using EMS and firefighter supplies for an avant-garde look (think bandages, fire hoses, etc).

In honor of my feeling special, sexy, and so fashionable I visited Paris, one of the world’s fashion capitals. I love all of what I’m wearing from the top of my head down to my toes. Where is that runway? I feel like being in a fashion show.

Ooh La La

I subscribe to a lot of stores and groups. This morning I received a notecard about Fifty5 Thursday deals at Seven. Deciding I loved this look off to the shop I went. Alena comes as a top and mini skirt. Details give it an edgy look. There are a number of colors to choose from available at the store ($55L per color).

Sizes

  • Belleza, Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Maitreya Lara
  • SLink HG & Physique

Edgier (?)

SL19B eyes with hud 6-18-2022_001 (1)

Then another notecard arrived from Sintiklia! The store participates in the Happy Weekend Sale on a fairly regular basis. One of today’s offerings is this funky updo, Octavia. It’s a high ponytail pulled to the front and bangs hanging in front. Included in each color pack is a style hud. It was just what I needed to complete this look.

Look deeply into my eyes . . . . Named “Rainstorm Eyes” they’re a lovely SL19B gift from theMars. You get 6 shades of bom eyes along with huds for Catwa, Catwa HDPro, Lelutka Evo, and Genus. The huds work with the eyes for each of the heads. How cool is that?

SHOES!

Finishing off my look is the gorgeous Lilly shoes, one of many group gifts at StephaneL. The group join fee is $15L. The current gift is a $500L gift card. I’m not very good at math but even I can see that’s a pretty good deal. You’ll also find a couple of walls of older group gifts.

Run If You Want It

6-12-22 $35L Sun Dori Papillion Boutique

Who never, ever had a favorite jean jacket? I still have mine sitting in a closet with all of the pins I collected during trips here and there. The odds are that it will never, ever fit again but I cant let go of it. It brings back lots of happy memories. I have bought or been gifted quite a few jackets over the years and they’ve all been quite nice. Today I found what might possibly be my new favorite on sale!

One in a Million, er, Melon?

Oh, the cuteness! Not only will this jacket keep you warm on cool days and nights. Everyone can see how special you really are. You all know how I love the $35L Sunday sales. The Summer Autumn Jacket offering at Dore Papillion Boutique does all of the above. If the longer cut and rolled up sleeves don’t look comfy enough then the soft denim may convince you. The “cherry on top” is the artwork on the back proclaiming you as “One in a Melon”. This jacket is sized only for Maitreya.

Note: The $35L sale ends at Midnight SLT.

Ta-ta for now folks!

Dressed for Brunch

Brillancia Top & skirt $30L Sun 6/5/22

A Sunday brunch with friends is always a pleasure. We went to Brennan’s Restaurant on Royal  Street in the Vieux Carré. Mmm, love those mimosas and Bananas Foster, a delicious conconction of bananas, butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, rum, banana liqueur and vanilla ice cream flamed at your table. After all that yumminess I had to hail a cab so I could get home and fall into a food coma.

Stuffed

Dining at a world famous restaurant is an occasion to dress to the nines! Luckily I was able to nab this sophisticated ensemble, Olivia, from Brillancia for a total of $60L (the top & skirt are separates priced at $30L each). I’m wearing the chocolate color but there are a number of colors to choose from at the store. It fits my Maitreya body like a glove!
Note: This is the $30L Saturday offering. It’s still available as of this posting.

Sizes

  • Belleza Freya
  • Kupra, Kups
  • Legacy & Perky
  • Maitreya & Petite

Hope your week is filled with goodness & yummy things!

Time for Chilling Out

30L Sat Belle Epoque Nohoa

Whew! It sure is hot! Time to show some skin and cool off. It was too hot to lug my board to the water until I cooled down some. If you can’t cool down dressed like this then you must be having “private summers”. In my wanderings today I found the perfect bikini, some nice cold juice and a very cool beach with surfing.

She Wore an Itsy Bitsy Teeny Weeny Rainbow Bikini

I tripped into Belle Epoque earlier and scooped up the Nohoa bikini for only $30L; Wheeee!
It’s the Pride Edition. Though it’s a bit teeny it does cover up all your private parts and it’s well crafted with nice details.

Sizes

  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Perky
  • Petite

OMG! New Hair!

The other day a wee birdy whispered into my ear news of a free to join store group with a free group gift. Being the hair hoarder that I am I immediately tp’ed over to check it out. Who doesn’t have fun being able to change your style, color, length, etc?

Deadbox-Dollbox is a new to me store with a small selection of male & female clothing & tattoos. There are a couple of hairstyles; one of them is the Shafar gift. You add a bom hairbase and wear the hair (ponytail). Included are a  color change hud and an accessory – a gold colored ring to add to the style.

My tasty little box drink, Gay Juice, is a gift courtesy of 28LA. at Second Pride blogged by Aline here

Feeling Like a Fantasy

30L Sat God Mod/Simply Shelby 5-28-2022

Happy Saturday! I have a couple of goodies to show you. SL weekends are stuffed with sales events. There are tons of items at heavily reduced prices. I don’t roleplay in Second life but I do like a lot of the clothing and “magical” items. One of my go-to sales for those genres is $30L Saturday. There is a good mix of items so everyone is likely to find something they “need”. So, today I decided to do something a little different.

How This Happened

Reviewing the sales gallery the first item that caught my eye was a splendid scepter (I admit I thought it was a staff!). Simply Shelby creations are well made and sometimes a bit on the fantastical side. I love this one! The Maleficent Scepter Set comes with three colors: rose red, moss green, & mystical purple. The set includes both scripted with flicker & ribbon effects and non-scripted glow versions. An ad states it was “magically created from mystical fairy flower pods”. A tip about the store: The sales items often stay out for several days longer and you can slap a few MM boards while you’re there (NGN).

I needed something to wear that would show off my scepter. The stunningly textured Wild Rose Top & Maxi Skirt on sale at God Mod, a fairly new to me store, fit the bill. It looks so comfy I want a set in RL too. Note: Blue is the only color on sale.

Sizes

  • Maitreya
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus
  • SLink HG & Physique

Find your fantasy look…
