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


Bring it on, Monday

Bring it on, Monday

Good evening and a pleasant Monday to you , FabFree. I hope all of our gentlemen had a chance to make it over to Butterscotch for the free group join and gifts. 

Tastic is another new to me designer.  The shop is split between men’s and women’s clothing with the ladies side is a bit larger.  There are quite a few Lucky Letter boards for the group with just as many men’s things as the women which is great to see. The group is free to join and there are a dozen past gifts available to pick up. Like the mesh insert hoodie I’m showing.

The “Net Hoodie” is just unusual enough to really catch the eye. And I do love to see designers doing more than snapbacks and sweatpants.  The only drawback is this particular item does not come with a Belleza Jake size. But I was able to get a good fit with the SLink and some creative alpha-ing.

Sizes Included

  • Adam
  • Altamura

First coffee, then everything else

First coffee, then everything else

Hello again, FabFree.  I was made aware yesterday of a new shop just for the men. Since this isn’t a common occurrence, I was more than happy to check it out. And I was very glad I did. But first I have to thank the great folks in the FabFreechat group who are the ones who brought this new store to Juli’s attention. She pounced on me the second I got in world and set me to work. ( A tip of the hat to “SB” )

The new shop is Butterscotch and it’s rather tasty as the name may suggest. When I landed at the front doors I had to dodge my way past loads of new shoppers which I hope is a very good sign of the designer. I joined the free group and immediately got a 400L gift card. A note of warning, if I read the signs correctly, this group will become 50L to join at some point in the future. A good reason to hurry over.  In addition to the gift card, there is also a group gift. This is the ‘Lucas Henley’. It comes with a full fatpack of colors. The HUD includes twenty colors for the Henley shirt and  twenty colors for the undershirt. The build is spot on and the details are very nice indeed.  I really appreciate that the arms and shoulders do not deform when I move. Something many designers miss when making male clothing.  

I used my gift card to purchase the jeans I’m wearing as well. The ‘Liam’ jeans are available in both singles and a fat pack. I chose the single ‘Denim #1’ pack. I am equally impressed with the jeans as with the top.  I have a feeling I will be showing off many more items from Butterscotch.   

Also…on a personal note… when you add the item from your inventory a soothing masculine voice says “Butterscotch… enjoy.”   I just… what can I say.  Juli made me take it off and on several times just to hear it again. I do have to admit… It’s an awesome touch.

Sizes Included ( Both top and Jeans )

  • Belleza Jake
  • Legacy
  • Signature Gianni

Confess

Confess

All right, FabFree.  I have a confession to make. I was lazy this Holiday season and I did not do my due diligence when the Access Event opened up way back on December 12th. Now here it is about 24 hours before the Event closes… and I’m just getting a very nice men’s gift up on the blog. Don’t yell… Juli is already rather put out with me.  That said… don’t waste a moment getting over to the Access Event before it shuts it’s doors and pick up quite a few nice free gifts for the men. Just join the Access Event group which is also free.

I chose this stylish jacket and turtleneck combination from Varsity, the ‘Randon Jacket’. You’ll get a HUD to change the color of both the Jacket and the sweater for good versatility. The pose is built in to the jacket so your hands stay in the pockets. The details are very well done and I foresee wearing this quite often.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Jake
  • Legacy
  • Signature – Gianni
Again… the Access Event closes January 8 so hurry over before it’s too late.

Good afternoon, FabFree.  I am sure that all of our Fabulous Readers are surely on Santa’s Nice List. And all of you can expect nothing but sweet treats and wonderful gifts from Saint Nick. But I have to say… there are some benefits to taking a peek at the Naughty List.

The Naughty List Event at least has some very nice special buys set out for us at least. One, in particular for the gentlemen is this warm layered sweater from ZFG for Him. This is the “Edward Sweater” and you can pick it up for only 10L.  Be sure and check out the ZFG booth while you’re there for the event exclusive and some excellent deals.

Dreaming by the fire

Dreaming by the fire

Season’s Greetings, Fabulous Folk. As you’ve seen, Julianna is completely immersed herself in the Christmas cheer. So I feel I can do the same. Winter is fully upon us here in our little corner of the Grid and the Real World as well. In fact, there are little flurries of snow falling as I write this. So it’s the perfect setting to stay in beside the fire with a good book and a couple of happy puppers.

I’m dressed for the occasion in this casual turtleneck from Madcat Creations. It seems I’ve been showing quite a bit from this talented designer lately. And why not? Each piece is well built and  has excellent details. I know I certainly appreciate all the offerings for the men of Second Life since it can be difficult to find quality items on a budget.  This is the Snowflake Turtleneck Sweater, and you can pick it up for a little hunting and 1L as part of the “Dreaming of a White Christmas” hunt. If you’d rather not hunt, the gift is available for 25L on the Hunt poster. There is also a beautiful white snowflake dress in the same prize box for the ladies.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Jake
  • Signature – Gianni
  • SLink

Break Down

Break Down

There are times when a gentleman must take matters into his own hands. No matter your breeding or status, when your airship’s boiler goes out… you pull on a sturdy pair of gloves, secure a tool box and sort things out.

ContraptioN, obviously understands this because this month’s free group gift for the L’Homme readers is all about getting your hands dirty yet remaining a gentleman.

This is the Thibaut waist coat “work” and it’s a generous free gift from ContraptioN. The ‘work’ designation being the soot and grime around the sleeves. Signs of honest work, if you ask me.  Equally well used are the leather gloves I’m sporting. These are the ‘Dapper Dandy’s Gloves’ also designated ‘Soot’.   Both of these gifts will be available until the next round of L’Homme.

Sizes Included (waist coat)

  • Belleza Jake
  • Belleza – Freya
  • Maitreya (+ a Flat Chest Version)
  • Signature – Gianni
  • SLink Male Physique
  • SLink – Hourglass

Sizes Included (gloves)

  • Belleza – Jake

When the days turn to Autumn

When the days turn to Autumn

Hey FabFree, we’re halfway through the week  already! I swear, with all the fairs and Hunts and events, I’m going a little batty! 😉  Yeah yeah, I know… it was an easy laugh. But when I saw the latest Fabulously Free Group Gift from Mirus Designs… how could I not go batty for it?

The Bat Blouse is so cute! I’m betting it will be my standard outfit for the rest of the season! I just love the deep purple color and… Bats! Plus, it’s all free for the FabFree Group and our group is, of course, free to join! You can just slap that display board and join, easy peasy.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Classic Mesh – XXS – L

Now there isn’t just goodies for us girls. Mirus Designs also has a gift for the guys too. The “Cool men’s open front shirt” is just a 1L for everyone, no group needed.   Cool enough as a set, you can use just the open front shirt with the insert included. So you can show off those abs, guys. There is also a small section in store for the guys with some very nice designs. Definitely worth checking out, gentlemen.

A little warmth

A little warmth

 

It’s starting to get cool in the mornings, a sure sign of Autumns arrival. Plus, just about everywhere, pumpkins and ghosts and those enormous bags of candy in the stores. I have to admit I am having a great time finding, and sampling, the bags Juli thinks she’s hidden around the house.

Speaking of finding treats, you will be hunting down a piece of candy for the Boo! Bunny Hunt to get your treat. This is the men’s gift from Ink Blots and it’s just one Linden plus some hunting. The warm jacket and sweater come as one convenient piece making dressing easy and quick. The details are of good quality and move well once it’s on. Something a lot of men’s wear struggles with. The Boo! Bunny Hunt runs until October 31rst so don’t delay.

Sizes Included

  • Classic Mesh – XS – XL

I received very sad news today, FabFree. The Stay at Home Club is closing it’s doors as of September 25. I will be very sorry to see them go. I certainly got used to picking up all the great free gifts. But… all good things come to an end, I suppose.

No Time

I am glad I had time to pick up these great cargo pants from FurtaCor. These are the ‘Owen’ pants and while the Club is still open, you can get them for free. The pants come with a HUD to choose one of fifteen colors and patterns. As with everything I’ve seen from FurtaCor, these are a great build right down to the details. I would suggest, however, that you don’t wait around to grab these before the Stay at Home Club is just a fond memory.

Sizes Included

  • Aesthetic
  • Altamura
  • Signature – Gianni
  • SLink

One quick note, you may see that there is no Belleza Jake size. I have discovered that Altamura fits Jake rather well. Good to know.

Hello and Happy Weekend, FabFree. A new to me designer has popped up on my radar for good quality men’s wear today. I was alerted by my group chat for Third Life to a new gift. I know Juli has told you all about the Third Life Group and while there’s a majority of gifts for the girls, we guys have a gift or two as well. You just have to join the group for a small onetime fee of 10L and you’ll have access to loads of designers and those free gifts.

Modern Charm is a new to me designer and I’m very pleased  to have discovered them. There is a group with multiple gifts and a large store. The items are well built and have quality textures. I have a feeling I will be returning to Modern Charm often.  This top is the Paolo Tank and you can pick it up for free with your Third Life Group tag. The tank comes with a HUD with five colors and four graphics you can mix.

Sizes Included

  • Adin
  • Belleza Jake

Oh and one last thing…. I’m Batman.
