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


All I want for Christmas is… some free mesh bodies and heads!

Coming Soon to Fab Free

It’s the most wonderful time of the year…

Advent is my favourite time of the year in Second Life. In fact, I go a bit crazy with it! This year has been no letdown, and the amazing list compiled at Fab Free this year was incredible! Time to give our amazing blog organizer Aline a round of applause. *claps*. Make sure you check out those calendars and see if any of the past gifts are available before the 24th of December. The Fab Free December advent list is here.

Advent Calendar at Altamura

Today I will be sharing the incredible advent gifts by Altamura this year. The Altamura group is currently free to join for a limited time, which will give you access to their 12 days of Christmas gifts, sitting under the tree at the store, and two free mesh avatars. Joining the group will also give you access to group gifts that are located around the store (you have to search for them in each section of the store), and there is also a free male mesh head at the back of the store which is a current group gift.

Altamura is known for gifting free, full avatars that include a mesh body and head that are (usually) joined together. This advent, they are gifting two full mesh body and head combos for men and women. These bodies are fully BOM and bento and they can be used out of the box with few limitations. My friend Remus and I are showing off the full avatars above. They are beautiful! This is perfect if you need a new avatar or look for free. In each box, a full mesh head and body are included. The head and body are one piece so you cannot wear another head or body with each piece. Altamura bodies fit Altamura clothes, and you can often get the female avatar to fit other brands like Maitreya or Slink with the aid of alphas. I have heard that the male body fits Adam sized clothing nicely, but I have not tested that out. You will need to use alphas (see below) to wear non-Altamura clothes with these bodies. Altamura has a list of all the companies that make Altamura-sized clothing which is handy if you need help finding clothing for your new body.

One thing that’s important to know about these gift bodies is that they are fully BOM and because of this, they do not include a body hud. So, to add makeups, skins, and tattoos you must use BOM products. You can even use BOM eyes and nails. Any system eyes or nails will work with these bodies. As there is no body hud, you must use add alphas manually to your outfits. In order to alpha out sections of the body,  you will need a set of alphas (like the ones that are used when you have a classic avatar). I found two stores that have a good set of alphas out for free with no group join required:

  1. The first free alpha sets kit is at Little Black Dress. Just click the bag on the ground and the alphas are yours.
  2. Slink also has a set of free alphas out at their main store. Click the board that says “extra alpha layers”.

For the Ladies…

The free female body on offer is called “Movin’ On” and she is gorgeous. The ad below pictures what her head looks like up close. A truly beautiful avatar.

MOVINGon

In addition to giving out these wonderful bodies, there are more gifts under the Christmas tree at Altamura. The red BOM shirt I am wearing underneath my sweater and the sparkly heels are two of those free gifts. The heels are fitted for Altamura, Maitreya, and Slink bodies.

Goodies for the Guys!

I pulled in my friend Remus for the post today. Remus is sporting the Take My Way male avatar, which is also free. He is wearing 3 other free advent gifts from Altamura’s calendar, including the sweater and the scarf. The sweater is sized for Altamura bodies only and the scarf will fit any avatar. The jeans he is wearing are BOM/system pants which can be found for free in everyone’s library. Details are listed in the credits below.

TAKE MY WAY GIFT

Another awesome freebie that’s out for the guys at Altamura right now is the Akakor Mesh head. I am not sure how long this head will be available for free, so I wanted to mention it for all the guys out there. This head is BOM and Omega compatible and it can be worn with any other mesh body! Normally, Altamura heads go for 3-4, 000 L so this is a great deal! Snatch it up which you can, boys!

Free Unisex Hair!

Coming Soon to Fab Free

The last thing I wanted to mention is the gifts at the Firestorm Major Event. Remus is wearing the free unisex Jaime hairstyle by Firelight which is currently free to get at the event. This hair can be worn on a male or female avatar and it is completely free, no group join required. This freebie is out for a limited time, and there is also a free arctic ferret, and a free black panther you can grab at the event. I can not find when this event ends, but it will be very soon because this is a holiday-themed event. Go while you still can to get the gifts there.

I wanted to give special thanks to Orion Swansong and Ryan Schultz for helping me prepare for this post! These bodies were new to me and they helped me out greatly. You can read Ryan Schultz’s review of the Altamura advent gift bodies here.

Go snatch all these great gifts up before it’s too late!

Kitten in the Snow

Kitten in the Snow

Don’t worry little one, I will keep you safe and warm. I’ll also keep myself cute at warm thanks to a few free group gifts at FaMESHed. If you’ve not made it over to FaMESHed yet, it’s well worth it to go. You may have seen the posts Aline has done featuring some of the many gifts at FaMESHed. I also recently showed the FaMESHed gift by Cae. If not, I’ll link them below. For this post I am featuring the free FaMESHed group gifts by Luas and Limerence. FaMESHed runs until December 27th, and the required event group is free to join.

Luas

My full outfit, minus the shoes and socks, is a free FaMESHed group gift by Luas. The scarf, sweater, and skirt are all included in this fantastic free gift. Each piece comes in the pink/black color shown with several size choices. I really love the warm tones to the shades of pink in this outfit. The extra long sleeves I’ve come to associate with Luas are also so cute and cozy for winter.

Limerence

This tousled chin-length hairstyle by Limerence is also free at FaMESHed with the event group tag. It comes in rigged and unrigged versions for easy fitting, and with or without the delicate shimmery snowflakes. This free hairstyle comes in a brown color pack with several brunette tones.

Holiday Tacos

Tacos Tequila
Oh Hello There; Welcome back to the blog Fab Free’rs! There are quite a few things that are kind of part of the local culture where I am from. This outfit embodies two of them. For starters, most people have a deep love for tacos. I’m not sure if it is our proximity to Mexico or if the tacos are just that super fantastic, but tacos are serious business out here. Secondly, you could actually wear a long sleeveless top and a scarf in December and be warm enough in the afternoon. You thought I was going to say something about tequila didn’t you?!

Get Lucky at Petite Mort

Okay so tequila isn’t so bad either, and it does go quite well with tacos, but that is not the point. This fun loose tank top is one of many Lucky Letter board prizes at Petite Mort. It comes in several mesh sizes, and in my opinion is well worth the effort. The Petite Mort group tag is required for the Lucky Letter boards. There is a one time join fee of 75 linden at this time.

Mesh Sizes Included: Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Maitreya Lara (2 sizes)

Also, just in case you missed them, Love blogged a few of the other Lucky Letter board gifts at Petite Mort in her posts “Seeing Sepia… Roses” and “Can’t Stop! Too Many Sales!.

Keep Warm at Clawtooth

Clawtooth recently set out this wispy long hairstyle out as a FREE gift. There is no need to join a group, just pay the gift vendor 0 linden. The knit scarf is part of the hairstyle  Along with the hairstyle you’ll get a color change hud for the scarf, and an “Essentials” hair color pack. Needless to say this awesome Clawtooth FREEbie is a must have.

Here are the details, enjoy!

Hair w/Scarf – Clawtooth: Snug as a Bug Holiday Gift (Essentials) – FREE Gift $0L

Head – CATWA Unisex HEAD Pink

Skin –  Essences – Rachel

Top – Petite Mort– Tacos/Tequila Sharkbite Tank – Group Lucky Letter Prize / Group is 75L to Join

Izzie’s Group Gift Scarf & Glasses Set 

Hello Hello Fab Free’rs! Today I have a quick little post about the group gift from Izzie’s to share with you. Honestly it’s just too cute to miss even though there is a group join fee. I love the little snowflakes that are sprinkled over this knit scarf, and the appearance of frost on the over-sized glasses. This FREE group gift at Izzie’s is truly every bit as cute as it looks. The set also includes a color change hud so you can choose between 7 colors to match almost any outfit. The glasses and the scarf have their ownwinter individual huds, so the colors can be changed individually. Additionally the set is unisex. The scarf has male and female sizes, and the glasses are able to be resized manually. As I mentioned, there is a one time join fee for the Izzie’s group, the fee is 250 lindens, however with gifts like this I think the fee is worth it!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Winter Memories

Trucking

Memories.

I learned how to drive on an ancient stick shift truck much like the one in this picture. At least that’s how it seems in the mind’s eye of my inner child. It had a wooden bed and holes in the floor board and I was 15 1/2 and it was winter and I was certain I would not survive the cold as there was no heat in that thing. Yet somehow I managed to grow a fondness for those first experiences. So when I put together my ensemble, I had to capture a picture in front of this pick-up at Rosemoor Sim to share with you.

Trucking 2

The shirt.

I picked up my holiday shirt (it’s an applier T-shirt, and I adore applier shirts as they fit any body shape) for FREE from House of Ruby. The Advent Calendar Hunt is on right now, and House of Ruby is participating. Just hunt down the little candle and this gift is yours for 0L.  You’ll get appliers for Maitreya, Slink, and Omega.

I needed a scarf!

It was cold outside! But I found a free scarf! If you haven’t stopped by Prism to pick up the advent gifts there, don’t despair. It’s not too late. You can only pick up one gift per day, but you can choose any day (as long as it’s already passed). So in other words if you go today, you could choose any ONE of days 1 through 7. So if you like my scarf you can wear your FREE Prism group tag today and choose day 2 to pick it up! It’s rigged mesh, so it will fit and flow with your body!

One more thing to top it off!

Don’t forget about the Alice Project Advent Calendar! Every day a FREE to all gift hair is being set out, but if you are a member of the VIP group (it is 750 to join) you also get an additional gift. 750 seems steep until you realize you’ll be getting an extra 24 hairs and since Alice Project does these gift projects rather frequently, stay in the group and you’ll be set for the next time they hand out extra gifts to VIP members (which seems to be pretty often in my experience).

I’m wearing Jenn from a couple of days ago. Unlike the daily FREE gifts, the VIP gifts are available to VIP members throughout the advent season, so if you miss a day, you can still pick it up later, as long as you get there by the 24th.
