On the 6th Day of Christmas…

121522 - On the 6th Day of Christmas - 03

Hello Dear Fabbies.  First of all, I apologize for vanishing for over a week.  To make it quick and move on with the post I’ll give you a short FYI:  I suffer from numerous health problems that tend to kick me off my feet for days at a time.  Ok let’s move on!

Today I’m doing something a little different for these Days of Christmas posts.  I cannot decide if I want to do only 12, or do the full number on Advent calendars.  However, the next few will be catch up and will cover stores that have Advent calendars with gifts available through Christmas.  If you have an opinion on any of this, feel free to voice it in the comments below!

So for Day 6, I am bringing you 3 dresses and 3 pairs of shoes from Pink Mango.  This fun store has a 24 day advent calendar for group members and the group is FREE to join.  Once joined, just click the day you want and voila!  And as I stated above, all days so far that are past are still available.  For FREE!  The pretty sweater top and skirt set above that I am wearing are the gift from Day 12.  And the heels are Day 13.  Here is the fit information for you:

Outfit:

  • Standard fitmesh sizes XS through XL
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Physique
  • Belleza Venus

Heels:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis & Venus
  • Slink Hourglass & Physique
  • Maitreya

121522 - On the 6th Day of Christmas - 02

This second outfit includes the beautiful, metallic minidress from Day 6 and the copper boots from Day 11.  Again the fits are:

Dress:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis & Venus
  • eBody
  • Slink Hourglass & Physique
  • Maitreya
  • TMP
  • Tonic Fine & Curvy
  • Standard mesh in S, M & L

Boots:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis & Venus
  • Slink Hourglass & Physique
  • Maitreya

121522 - On the 6th Day of Christmas - 01

This final outfit includes the pink sequin dress from Day 14 and purple sandal wedges from Day 9.  Once more the fits…

Dress:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis & Venus
  • eBody
  • Slink Hourglass & Physique
  • Maitreya
  • TMP
  • Standard mesh sizes XXS through L

Boots:

  • Belleza
  • Slink
  • Maitreya

121522 - On the 6th Day of Christmas - 04

I also have to share this beautiful skin from AnneLand called Jade.  With your purchase you receive the BOM face skin in normal and no brow versions, a neck fix and the ear tattoo.  This fits Lelutka Evo X.  AnneLand skins are made to coordinate with Velour body skins and Jade comes in tones ranges Blush through Sunkiss.  I am wearing Sienna in the no brow option and added some eyebrows I had in my inventory.  The skins are absolutely stunning and the reason I am telling you about them here on FabFree is because the entire store is 80% off through December 31st!!!  If you haven’t already, go check them out!

Finally, one last amazing deal is this set of props and poses I am using.  It is from Fashiowl, which has the most amazing prop/backdrop/pose sets I have ever seen.  This particular set I am using is called “Thanks” and it was perfect for this “Christmas tree shopping in California” shoot.  Your purchase comes with the set, which you can sit on and choose poses from the menu, a pose stand, and all 12 poses individually.  All this for only L$60 right now!  But grab it quick because it’s on sale for the 60L$ Happy Weekend.  The far background of tropical plants and the sand are part of the sim I took these photos on, which of course I will credit below.

Side note…I just realized as I was doing the credits that three of the items I am wearing have the same name, and that was totally not planned!  See if you can spot it below…

Until next time!

On the 4th Day of Christmas…

120422 - On the 4th Day of Christmas - 01

We are ready for Day 4 and I decided to get all comfy and cozy for this one. Do not miss all of the FabFree advent calendar posts, or the Advent Calendar Listing!

I absolutely adore this tree swing, which is the gift from Day 3 at Kim’s Kreations, and still available for FREE with no group needed. The swing includes several animation choices, you can see 2 of them in the photos in this post. It is also a grand total of only 6 Li.

120422 - On the 4th Day of Christmas - 02

Now for my cozy outfit…This is today’s gift at Pink&Love which includes the hoodie and the pants. The gifts from here are FREE with group tag, which is FREE to join. It comes with fits available for:

  • Belleza Freya
  • Kupra
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass

The blue bunny slippers are the gift at the Veles Shopping center from Antaya for Day 3, available still for L$15, no group needed. These fit both Maitreya and Reborn feet only.

120422 - On the 4th Day of Christmas - 03

Isn’t this hair and hate cute? It is part of the Advent Calendar at MadPea as a free gift for HUD buyers (purchase the HUD for L$500). This particular gift through the HUD is from Lock&Tuft. The hair/hat comes with a male style and this female style, all with HUDs for changing the hair and hat textures.

The skin I am wearing as well as the eyes are both from 7 Deadly Skins. The skin is a full BOM body skin and fits Lelutka Evo X heads. This particular skin comes in 7 tones with no eyebrow versions included for each as well. I am wearing the lightest option – Taupe. The eyes are a beautiful dark blue and include mesh versions and a Lelutka Evo X HUD. Both are included in the December 4th gift, free for 7DS group members, which is L$500 to join.

Finally, I’m wearing one of the lipstick options from Noyaux for Day 4. The HUD is for Lelutka Evo X heads and has 12 beautiful wintery color choices. The gifts at Noyaux are FREE with no group needed.

Until next time!

Skins on Sale at Boataom

090122 - Boataom L$99 Skin Sale 01

Well made skins are something you invest in. Typically you don’t find amazing skins for super cheap unless there is a sale. And today I got VERY lucky and found a sale at one of my favorite skin stores: Boataom. Not all their skins are on sale, but three are: Beatrice, Maxine and Trinity (available in several tones each); all fit for Lelutka Evo X. They are only L$99 and on sale until September 10th. I had to share this deal with you because I thought it was incredible (even though it’s a bit over our 75L limit)!

Skins are now !!99L!!

The next three photos I wanted to include so that you could see each skin a little more closeup and with clear lighting.

090122 - Boataom L$99 Skin Sale 02

First up is Beatrice in the “Latina” tone. She has a European look. I wore her with the Original/Normal Cleavage Boataom body skin (not on sale).

090122 - Boataom L$99 Skin Sale 03

Next I am showing “Maxine” in the AF/AM tone. She is African American and I really like this tone so much. I wore her with the Chubby/Cleavage Boataom body skin option (not on sale).

090122 - Boataom L$99 Skin Sale 04

Finally is “Trinity” in the Esiana tone. This one appears more Asian and I’m wearing it with the Soft/Small Cleavage Boataom body skin (not on sale).

Don’t miss out on this amazing deal for these 3 skins! Be sure to try on demos before you buy so you can find what fits you best. Oh and the body skins are only L$350 per body option! The ones I am wearing are for my Maitreya Lara body.

Spring Breaker

Spring Break!

I was so fixated on St. Patty’s Day that I forgot to blog about Spring Break! It was spring break for me last week. Maybe you’re ready for a break soon, so it’s time to celebrate and jump into spring goodness! Ari-Pari has the perfect outfit out for 1L on the Spring Break Hunt by Cheeky Monkey Hunts. It includes a 5 colour hud of bright shorts and floral tops. This hunt ends on March 31st!

Sizes Included

  • Legacy
  • Kupra
  • Maitreya
  • Isis
  • Freya
  • Venus
  • Hourglass
  • Physique

Last-Minute Weekend Finds

I have a few more weekend finds for you! These are limited-time so here they are:

  • My pretty eyes are a free hunt prize on the Green Freaks Hunt. Go here to find all the LMs! You are looking for a little gold coin with a shamrock on it, which is free at every store.The hunt ends on March 27th so you have to go fast! These eyes are from lovelysweet and you will find them at The Stringer Mauseleum. They include 4 green and blue eye colours, with BOM layer and Catwa, Lelutka and Omega appliers.
  • My pretty black lipstick is a free gift at Skin Fair 2022. You will find this gift in Spookshow’s booth at Skin Fair. The gift includes this pretty lipstick in black, orange and purple and it comes in BOM layers for Lelutka EvoX. There are a few gifts at Skin Fair, but they aren’t in every booth! Take a look around at all the skins and any freebies and dollarbies that pop up. Some other stores that I found had gifts from at the event were 7 Deadly s[K]ins (free freckles), IVES Beauty (2 free skin fatpacks), The Stringer Mauseleum (a free blue and yellow skin and free eye testers) , KoKoLoReS (free hairbases), Evermore (free skin), Dernier (a free fatpack of skins), Lowen (a fatpack of skin and shape for 1L each), and tres beau (free tears and eye makeup). There is no way to directly teleport to each booth unfortunately, so hopefully my tips help you collect these great gifts more quickly and you can go find the designer booths at Skin Fair. Everything at the Skin Fair shuts down on March 28th!

Enjoy, FabFam!

I’m Lucky Tonight

Coming Soon

St. Patty’s Day may be over, but the FabFree St. Patty’s Day Hunt is still raging on until March 25th. Let’s dig into a few more gifts from the hunt!

First off, my pretty skin is a prize from 7 Deadly s[K]ins. they have several versions of this skin in the hunt package with beauty marks, lip gloss, browless and other features. I’m wearing the version with freckles! The skin is BOM, designed for Genus heads and you get the full set for only 5 Linden.

My cute little shamrock tattoo on my face is the hunt prize at new.monday. There’s also a cute rainbow face tattoo on the hunt there too! Both prizes are free!

Lucky Tonight

There’s some other St. Patty’s-themed hunts still available to do on the grid. One of those is the
Lucky Tonight Hunt 5, which has some adorable prizes! I love the prize from Ari-Pari, which is this cute crop top and shorts set, which you can change to several colour options via a hud. The prize costs only 1L!

Sizes Included

  • Physique
  • Hourglass
  • Lara
  • Freya
  • Venus
  • Isis
  • Legacy

Other Fun Finds

I had the chance to go all-out shopping last week, so I picked up a few more freebies to add to this outfit.

  • The pretty shamrock earrings are a free FabFree group gift at REA Fashions. The set includes a necklace too! The detail on these is excellent.
  • I decided to follow Desi’s advice here, and pick up the free 250L store credit group gift at Wicked Brat. I’m wearing the “Angel Eyes” which I got for free with my credit. Thanks Desi for the heads up! You can read all about it in her post here.
  • Finally, I found a great set of nailpolishes from Alaskametro at Free Dove. This is the “Alaska’s favs” collection and they are amazing! I love these nails. They include Omega and Maitreya appliers. See the picture below for the image of nail colours! I picked the glittery silver polish, but there are many options to choose from as you can see!

See you soon,

Yule Review

Yule Review

Good evening, FabFree. I know I rather don’t look like myself this evening but I had to take advantage of the remarkable new free mesh head available at Bespoke. I don’t often get the pleasure of seeing such high quality accessories coming around for the men of Second Life so I grasped this opportunity with some excitement.

This is the “Yule – Elf” head from Bespoke as I said and you can pick it up for free along with four different colored skins at the mainstore. The head comes with two shapes, one male and one female. Both are very well made as are the skins. Yule also includes:
• BoM Head/Body skin “Wood”
• Rigged eyes, eyelashes, mouth
• 6 eye colors
• AO HUD
• Eyebrow Tattoos (BoM)

I can honestly say I like this head and the shape that comes with it. The shape is not simply a handsome human with pointy ears. The shape and proportions of both head and body are very ‘other’. That said, the head responds fully to the slider system and can be made into your preferred shape easily. I left the shape untouched except for two things. I did make the head to body ratio slightly larger and I made the hands slightly smaller.  Simply personal preference, I would consider this head and shape ready to use ‘right out of the box’.

I did encounter a few minor issues. I felt the eyes did not fit inside the sockets well. They clipped a bit at the corners. However this could easily be changed or tweeked. It didn’t help that I wasn’t 100% happy with the colors of eyes offered but that is purely a personal preference and no bad mark against Bespoke. The other issue I had was the AO. The AO runs through a menu that I felt was a bit clunky. The animations were well done but a bit inconvenient to access. All said, I would not consider any of this a reason to not get this head and enjoy it’s use.

I want to say something about the skins both included and the four extra skins available. These are simply some of the best skins I have encountered in Second Life. They are truly astonishing. The details are both subtle and gorgeous. Even if you decide not to use them with the Yule head they are a stunning addition to your wardrobe.
Yule 2
I am uncertain as to how long the Yule head and the skins will be available but it is described as a “Season’s Gift”. If you would like to get this excellent elfin head and skins don’t delay.

Sea Friends

Sea Friends

Hey FabFree! Tonight I am showing off some awesome free sea pets, how to make a free fully bento, BOM, and mesh mermaid avatar, and free skins and shapes on the FabFree enchanted forest hunt!

The Tale of the Orca and the Starfish

The first thing I want to mention are my adorable underwater pets. As you might recall, I love animals and I also love fish and underwater creatures! This amazing and precious Orca is free gift at SL18B and you have just enough time to go grab him because the event ends tomorrow. This will be my last SL18B find to share and I am super sad about it, because I just loved this event. However, this beautiful gift by Jian is simply amazing. The Orca swims along with your avatar and it even does water tricks! It is just magical watching her/him swim underwater. Go grab this Orca for free at Jian’s booth at SL18B before it’s too late. 

The other cute little animal shown in my post today is the adorable starfish, who you will see has little cute, pouting eyes. This is a fish I caught with my 7Seas casual fishing rod for free. The rod costs 99L to buy, but you can catch free outfits with it (remember Aline and Arielles recent Sn@tch fishing post here?). While waiting for outfits, I have caught a lot of fish too and they are actually really cute pets! Many are animated, can swim around you, or you can rezz them in a tank or aquarium. They are too cute to delete. I just love this little starfish guy, and you can see a close-up of his little face below. 

Free Mermaids, anyone?

The other finds I want to share today are items that can be used to make a full, free BOM, Bento mesh mermaid avatar. 

The OpenMerTail

My mermaid tail is a free fully bento (moving) mesh tail- how cool is that! It’s like a total extension of your avatar. This tail moves and twists like a mesh avatar but the trick is to get the right bento ao for it to make full use of the bento features. The tail also includes fins which can be worn or detached. There is more information about this awesome bento, BOM mesh tail in the package, but it is all totally free on the Marketplace. This tail can be used on male, female and non-binary avatars. Because the OpenMerTail is its own mesh avatar part, you need to find and use BOM skins designed for the tail itself, and there is also a pack for creators and designers to make new skins for it! The tail is a full perm item. Note that a bento mermaid AO is not included in the package. 

Sizes Included

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Belleza Freya
  • Belleza Jake
  • Legacy Athletic
  • Must Trade Bara

OpenMerTail - Fullperm Bento Mermaid Tail

And here is a list of more free items I used to make my mermaid avatar:

  • I mentioned above how you will need skins for your new tail. Motley Fluke has several skins for the tail available for free on their marketplace store. The blue tail skin I am wearing can be purchased here for free. These tail skins are BOM and work only on the free mermaid tail advertised above. 
  • The stars pasties used to cover up my chest are another freebie on the marketplace. These stars are by Yama’s Ideas and they are unrigged, resizable mesh items. I just resized them manually to fit my avatar perfectly. The mesh pasties come in many different colours. 
  • The little bubbles below are a free animation by Stargaze on the marketplace designed for mermaid avatars. These are so realistic and perfect for creating realism of moving in the water. 
  • Finally, the skin used on my mermaid avatar is a free prize on the FabFree Enchanted Forest Hunt. This is one of several hunt prizes from 7 Deadly S[K]ins. The natural skin, untouched with no makeup, can be seen in my photo below. I am also wearing a free shape included in the hunt, but I just edited the tummy of the shape to fit the mermaid tail. The vendor ad of all the 7DS skins available for free on the hunt is posted below. These skin prizes are BOM and they include shapes and tattoos for Lelutka Evo elf ears as well. 

Mer Detail

☑ Enchanted Forest Hunt ☑ 5 skin boxes WITH shape included hidden in the store

When you add all these parts together, you will have a full bento, mesh, BOM mermaid avatar! Enjoy the mermaid and the orca, FabFree!

Good day my lovely witches and wizards! Have I ever mentioned how much I LOVE all things Harry Potter? I have been a Potter-maniac since I grew up with the series as a child and this week I was able to collect a few free and on-sale goodies in SL that are HP-inspired! What a treat!

Goodies from Muggleborn

At least one store in SL that is partially inspired by the Harry Potter series is Muggleborn, although it certainly takes an adult twist on the theme. Note that Muggleborn is an Adult-rated sim and if you are not over 18 you definitely cannot visit it; there are a number of adult-only themed items sold here. Aside from that warning, however, I absolutely LOVE this store! They even have this AMAZING top, shorts and ties set on their lucky boards to play for all to win. It includes a top, shorts and a tie. There are different styling/ stripping options for the top and tie, and the shorts can be adjusted for male/trans avatars as well. The tie also has different styling options. Each item comes with an HUD to change the colour pattern to the respective four Hogwarts houses (Gryffindor, Slytherin, Ravenclaw and Hufflepuff). To get these items, walk towards the back of the store until you see the “muggle” lucky boards and join Muggleborn‘s free group to play and win this amazing outfit!

In addition to these amazing gifts, Muggleborn has many fantasy-themed free group gifts and free past hunt items which you can get at the front of the store. This is also a brand new Stay at Home Club gift from them, which is a wand with a colour hud! This one may take the cake from me because now I can run around SL with a wand whenever I like with this free gift!!! I am so psyched about this!

Wisteria is Perfect…

This hair is perfect for visiting Hogsmeade, or for bundling up in the winter (even if it is spring now… it’s still snowing where I come from). The hair seen in this look above is Wisteria from EscalteD. This is a past MM board prize, and you can also win it on their Lucky Boards if you join their VIP group for 99L. This hair is a full fatpack of natural and unnatural colours which allow you to change the hair to different styles, change the colour of the hat and the pom pom and the hair bows on each braided ponytail. If you have no attention span for that, every hair at EscalteD is currently on sale for 50% as part of the Let’s Stay at Home event, so anyone can buy it right now at a discounted price.

Harry Potter Skins @ Ritual

Ritual Skins Sale- A Harry Potter Skins Collection

I should also mention that these gorgeous skins I am wearing are from Ritual. They currently have a massive sale on, where all of their skins are on sale for 100L. This is an amazing deal, and although not under our 75L limit, it is a steal I thought I should mention with this post. These skins normally go for hundreds and they are just gorgeous. These are four Harry Potter-themed skins which were previously sold at the Majik event sponsored by Muggleborn. Seen in order, this is Griffin, Slyther, Raven and Huffle. The skins include two tones each and the makeup is included in the skins; they can’t be removed. These are beautiful, so I just had to mention them! The Ritual store may be downsizing, so now is the time to support this amazing skins creator.

Have a magical day, Fab Free!
