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


The Light in the Dark

The Light in the Dark

Well well look who just waltzed in.  It is I, your friendly neighbourhood nutjob, Aline!  I’m feeling this dark and dangerous (with pops of colour) vibe going on these days.  Could it be that the summer weather is getting to me and I long now for the deep, clear, magical nights of Autumn?  It could be, or it could just be that it looks cool.  You decide!

Happy Anniversary

Uber is celebrating an anniversary round this month, and instead of the usual “head to the event and bang your head against a desk because it’s still full” thing, they’ve spread the gifts out in every mainstore of the designers that are participating.  It’s a cool twist, and you can get your hunt on while you’re waiting to get into the sim to do your shopping.  Many of the gifts are linked with the items being sold at the event (eg: an extra HUD with some exclusive colours), but I also found some items that are nice standalone gifts.  My first stop was Spirit where I picked up this ah-mah-zing top and skirt combo (that can be worn separately and comes in 6 gorgeous colours) for free – and just a little hunting.  Stop two was Dead Doll for this awesome headband that matches the outfit perfectly!  You’re looking for a little birthday gift on each sim that you can buy for 0L.  Sweet!  You’ll be able to find all the hints and info for this hunt HERE.  You’ve got til September 22nd to take part!

Sizes

  • Isis

As a quick note, there are some awesome free animations over at SAPA poses that you can grab by clicking on the garbage can – no group join required – totally fun to load into an AO or just stand around fidgeting.  Enjoy!

S’laters!

Serial Cereal Eater

Serial Cereal Eater

This seems like the opportune time to go on a rant about cereal.  I could ramble endlessly about the merits of this sugary breakfast treat over that… but really, why would I meander down the path of preferences in such an inelegant way?  Instead, I’ll just sit on this cart and buy a little bit of all of it.  Problem solved.

The Holy Pants

It’s hot out, right?  But you want to wear leggings, right!?!!  Another problem solved for you today courtesy of Spirit!  They’ve got this really fun top and leggings set out for free right now for members of the 7 Day Sale group, which is free to join.  This seems to be like a fairly new idea, so I hope it’s something that the group continues!  Anyway, you can wear the top and pants separately, making it a good mix and match option for your inventory.  Yay!

The Epitome of Zen

zen_001

As you guys know by now, I am all about the bohemian or the pink.   Anything both pink and bohemian, bonus points!  So I absolutely loved this skirt from Cremosas, and the fact that it only cost me 10L made it that much sweeter, if possible!

I wore it down to the beach and did some yoga and meditating, it was so peaceful.  I really needed that and I felt so much better afterwards!  It is available in a lot of fun colors and it fits:

  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Freya
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • Curvy
  • Fine

Technicolor Rainbow

Technicolor Rainbow

As much as I love winter, I have to admit this outfit has me daydreaming about warmer weather. Hello Fab Free’rs, I’m glad you’re here. For this post I’m really excited about the new group gift at MicRo, and Demicorn has out a group gift that I don’t know how I missed and can’t wait to share with you. Keep reading for all the whosits and whatsits and where and how.

MicRo

I really like this pleated skirt by MicRo a lot, mostly because it’s not a skirt but rather a skort. What’s a skort you ask? Skirt + short = skort. That’s right, there are mini-shorts under this mini-skirt. This free group gift has a color change hud with 4 solid color choices to pick from. Also, the MicRo store group is free to join.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, MeshBody Legacy, Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Belleza (Freya, Venus, Isis)

Demicorn

I love a good lippie, in any life, and especially Second Life. This pretty matte lip color is part of a group gift applier set at Demicorn. The “Sugarplum” set has a range of lip colors in berry reds and blue-violets. The Demicorn group has a join fee of 100 linden, and there are quite a few group gifts available.

Appliers Included: Catwa, Genus

Falling For Fall

Falling for Fall

It feels a bit chilly out, doesn’t it?  That slight pleasant nippiness to the air isn’t necessarily something to dislike, in fact it can be quite nice!  To me, Fall is always a time of renewal, of beginnings, and of change.  The trees reminding us all that letting go of the old really can be beautiful!

It’s the Kustom

Yay!  It’s time again for my favourite event, Kustom9!  I always find things I must have at this event, and this month is going to be even awesomer than usual since it’s their anniversary!  7 years old is certainly something to celebrate, and in the customary SL way – the giving of gifts – it is something I can really get behind.  Every booth (or almost every!) has a gift for members of the free-to-join Kustom9 group.  I picked up this fun sweater from Spirit (the sleeves are actually tied up behind my back…lol!) , which comes with an HUD that allows you to customize the colours of the sleeves and main panel, as well as this lovely pair of boots from Ison.  The boots come with an HUD to change up the colours as well and they are sized for Freya, Legacy and Maitreya.

Sweater Sizes

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Slink Original

If you can’t get in right away, don’t despair – Kustom9 is running until November 10th.  There’s also a Cam Sim to visit in case you can’t get into the Main Sim right away.

Enjoy!

The Time Traveler

Time Traveler

Anyone who tells you Time Travel is a science, and not an artform, is a scoundrel. It is and must be both. You need to be able to finesse your way through multiple realities and get the calculations correct. For now, I’m going to slice through the curtain of time and get myself out of this Jurassic nightmare before one of these giant prehistoric lizards decides I might be a delicious meal. Safe travels my fellow voyagers.

The Engine Room 

Purely by happenstance I visited the Engine Room event. Lo and behold, it’s an Anniversary round! You guessed it, that means free gifts. Lots and lots of amazing free gifts. The theme is steampunk and the gifts are free with the Second Life Syndicate group tag. The group is free to join. I got all of them, and would have loved to show all of them to you, but that would just be tedious for everyone. Instead, I put together my Time Traveler look using the Engine Room gifts from Eudora3D, Apricot Paws, Wicca’s Originals, Deadly Nightshade, and Lux Aeterna.

Second Life Syndicate group: secondlife:///app/group/d35c55f4-6a4f-eb2d-1dae-af9665f6f4cd/about

Eudora3D

I think this hat from Eudora3D is possibly one of the coolest hats I’ve ever owned, and it’s absolutely free. The Witch Hunter hat is incredibly detailed. It comes with a hud that lets you change the metal parts gold or silver, and adjust the position and size of the hat. You’ll find this freebie waiting for you at the Engine Room event. Don’t forget the Second Life Syndicate tag.

Apricot Paws

My very Victorian-like blouse by Apricot Paws is also free at the Engine Room. It fits beautifully and I love the subtle pinstripes. This shirt comes in a tucked and a not tucked version for multiple wear options. This gift also has a hud that lets you adjust the color of the bow, the buttons, and metal bits.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Maitreya V-Tech, MeshBody Legacy, MeshBody Legacy Perky

Wicca’s Originals

The Havoc Mask is the free Engine Room Anniversary gift by Wicca’s Originals. This super cool accessory is unisex in that it comes in a male sizes as well as a female size. The details are awesome, and it fit me perfectly, however there are resize scripts in the masks.

Deadly Nightshade

I think this clockwork mechanism halo piece by Deadly Nightshade is so cool. Not only does it look cool with all the great details, it also has moving parts. The pieces attach separately so that they move independent of each other. That also means they can be worn all together or separately. This free Engine Room gift was the initial inspiration for creating a Time Traveling character.

Lux Aeterna

The golden scalpel and scissors by Lux Aeterna together are the first Engine Room gift I unpacked and knew I had to do something with them. They are gorgeous aesthetically, and have a macabre element that I really like. They also have these really awesome bento hold poses, that are just icing on the cake. You’ll find them for free at the Engine Room. Again, don’t forget to join the free Second Life Syndicate group and wear the group tag to get the gifts.

Conversing with Spirits

Spirit Conversation

Hello Fab Free. We’ve made it more than half way through the week, hallelujah! Recently I did a bit of wandering through Second Life and stumbled across the Tlalli event. I’d never been before. Let me just tell you, the setting for this shopping event is gorgeous. It’s a beautiful Latin themed event in a vibrant setting that made me feel like I had been transported to a quaint town in Mexico. The setting alone is well worth the visit to the Tlalli event. There I picked up a few of the gifts some vendors had out while enjoying the scenery. Speaking of gifts, I also picked up the new group gift at SPIRIT, and a thank you gift by Rosary. From here I’ll get to telling you about all these fabulous finds. I hope you enjoy them!

Tlalli Gifts

Zinnias

I think this llama succulent planter is just the cutest. It is a free gift at the Tlalli event by Zinnias. This little guy is completely free, just look for the gift box at the Zinnias booth at the Tlalli event. No group is required.

Cherry Bunny

If you’re wondering about the bright green sugar skull in my hand, it too is a gift at Tlalli. You’ll find this 5 linden gift at the Cherry Bunny booth. What is it? It’s a typer! Wear it and it will appear invisible until you begin to type in open chat. Then the sugar skull will appear in your hand, you’ll give it a little shake and appear to listen to it. So cute!

SPIRIT

Next up, this cute deep grey colored sweater is the newest group gift at SPIRIT. It could be worn as a dress or a top. I found it fit nicely over my Blueberry jeans (listed in the credits). The sweater has a hud with it that allows you to change the color of the cute side ribbons. The SPIRIT group has a join fee of 25 linden, and there are past group gifts available as well.

Sizes Included: Belleza (Isis, Freya), Slink Hourglass, Maitreya Lara

SPIRIT Group gift - Autumn 2020

Rosary

My manicure is a lovely free gift from Rosary as a Thank You gift to all customers. There is no group needed for this pretty set of nails. The set has a few preset options with very pretty floral accent nails. Each hand size included also has several nail lengths to choose from. You’ll find this free gift waiting in a little package on the desk at the Rosary main store.

Sizes Included: Maitreya (short, medium, large, xl, xxl), Belleza (short, medium, large, xl, xxl), Slink (short medium, large, xl, xxl), Legacy (short, medim, large, xl, xxl)

Thank You

The Power of Pastel

The Power of Pastel

There’s something to be said about pastels.  They seem to brighten up the dullest days, without ever being too garish.  I know that in some parts of the world (definitely not mine) at this time of year thoughts of spring begin to take shape in peoples’ minds, and I think pastel is the way to start manifesting those thoughts!

Over at Kitja…

The cute top and skirt combo I’ve got going on are the latest gift over at Kitja!  The cute heart-covered top and pink skirt can be worn separately for maximum mix and match action!  To get this gift, all you have to do is join the Kitja & Spirit group for 19L.  While I was there I also happened to pick up these sunglasses for free, just by clicking on the gifts on the main counter.  These babies are free for all, and you don’t need to join the group to get them!  When you join the Kitja group, you also gain access to group gifts by Spirit, one of which Pru showed you the other day.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

Keep it pastel, Fab Free!

Damn Good

Damn Good

Alright, so Valentine’s Day might officially be over, but there’s no reason you can’t continue to celebrate. Even more, there’s no reason to not continue picking up all the fantastic February/Valentine’s Day group gifts still available. My sexy sporty look is mostly thanks to a new group gift at SPIRIT, while my fancy beverage is a current group gift at e.marie. You know the drill by now, keep reading for more information, and get full credits at the end.

SPIRIT

I’m going to be honest with you, I love the way this group gift outfit from SPIRIT looks on. However, I was a little unsure about how to style it. I went with a somewhat sporty look, and I think it worked out alright. haha However you choose to style this fun, sexy outfit, it’ll look great. The outfit includes the strapped bra top, and matching pants with front panel cutouts. Both the top and the pants have customization huds that let you change the color/texture of the straps, and the metal bits on the bra top. A few of the options have cool phrases like the one I chose that reads “I may be a bad girl but I’m a damn good woman.” Can’t argue with that! To get yours, you’ll need to join the SPIRIT group which has a join fee of 19 linden.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza Freya

e.marie

You can never go wrong with a group gift from e.marie. This sweet little latte is the Valentine’s Day group gift at e.marie. It has a bento hold pose built in, and a cute particle effect. To get your hands on this foamy confection, simply head over to e.marie and click the gift vendor while wearing your e.marie group tag. The e.marie group has a join fee of 50 linden. This group gift is waiting outside the store with the other Valentine’s Day themed items.

Hello hello Fab Free’rs! Turn some heads in this sexy cute group gift outfit from SPIRIT. I love the boho pattern on the ripped blue-jean skirt. I also really like the loose weave of the sweater. It’s revealing without revealing too much. To get your copy of this group gift outfit you’ll need to join the SPIRIT store group which has a one time join fee of 25 linden. Also, I want to note that this outfit comes fitted for Maitreya Lara bodies only. Have fun Fab Free!
