FabFree – Fabulously Free in SL

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


All twisted up

All twisted up

Good afternoon my FabFree Crew! Happy weekend to us all. Now that I have some free time on the Grid it’s time to dive into my favorite Hunt off the year: The Twisted Hunt! Yes, it’s stupid hard… and stupid frustrating and yes, I pull my hair out every year… I do love it. It’s such a challenge and finding that right cube is a real thrill. Plus, I think the designers really pull out all the stops for this hunt and we get some awesome gifts.

Like this sweet little harness and mini from Ari-Pari. The dress comes with a HUD for choices of color and three colors for the harness. Plus a switch to turn the harness on and off. Makes for a nicely versatile addition to your closet.

Just be warned. There are no clues and tons of decoys at most of the designers in this Hunt. But you can join the Twisted Hunt group for fun chat and a little help along the way. The Twisted Hunt runs until Sept 30th so get in there and get twisted!

Heyya Fab Crew! Is it too early to start thinking Fall things? Apple cider… Crisp days and chilly nights… Back to school and trees changing colors. I love Fall, it’s my favorite season. So when I saw this Autumn inspiring dress and sweater on the Uber Hunt, I knew I would be showing it off.

This is the “Mona” set from True Damage. And what a lovely free gift it is. The dress is one complete mesh piece for easy one click dressing! It comes with a great HUD to change the color of the skirt and the under tank. I picked one of the tartans because… Fall, ya’ll. 

Sizes Included

  • Alice
  • Belleza Freya
  • Maitreya
  • Maitreya Petite
  • SLink 

Adding to my “Falling” look today is my new hair from Tableau Vivant. This is “July” and you might have missed picking it up in store. The gift box is behind the front counter up on the shelf. The box is plain white and I know I overlooked it many times. But this is too pretty a hair style to miss out on. You get a nice styling HUD to push all the hair back behind your shoulders or leave one side down. Tableau Vivant makes some of the nicest hair on the Grid so don’t miss adding this free one to your wardrobe.

Stand Out

Stand Out

Heyya  Fabulous People! One of the best thins for me abut living on the Grid is I can wear anything I want! I can be as sedate or as wild as I feel like at any given moment. And some days.. I wanna stand out above the masses! And that’s just what this sweet little combo from Grumble is making me feel.

Both my new shoes and dress are free group gifts from the fabulous Grumble. They are just two of a ton more past gifts available for us members. And that group… free to join!

The ‘Knotted  Dress – Butterflies’ is more than just another mini. The super rich colors of the print on the black just pop. And the little detail of the knot at the hem of the dress makes it just that much more of a stand out.

Oh and these shoes! The ‘Lace up Black wedges’ could go with just about anything in your wardrobe. The details of the build are so perfect. But this IS Grumble we’re talking about so that’s no surprise.

Sizes Included for the Dress

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique

Sizes Included for the Shoes

Floating

Floating

Don’t mind me, I’m just pretending to be a mermaid.  I’m hanging out in the deeps, just floating along and letting go of all my cares.  Thank goodness I don’t need oxygen in SL…right?

Make a Splash

In my regular SL rounds, I stopped by Paper.Sparrow and checked out their lucky boards.  I was excited that the letter A was up on this awesome bikini that comes in a full fatpack of awesome textures and colours.  You can change the top and bottoms separately and go as crazy or staid as you desire!  You don’t even need to join a group to grab this cute swimwear (or the other prizes) just wait for your letter to come up – it’s all free!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis

Good Days

Good days

Heyya FabFree! I hope your weekend is off to a wonderful start. It’s a slow kinda day for me here on the Grid. Just some Gacha and some hunting and time with family. By sundown, I needed a break! So I threw on some comfy clothes and me and the pupper headed off for a stroll on the beach. 

And what is this super cute and casual tee and shorts set I have today? It’s none other than the free gift for the Teleport HUB Group from Monomania. This is the “Nyah Star” set and you can get it for free if you’re a member of the Teleport HUB group. Now the group, as I’ve said before, costs a wee 10L to join. But then you can fill up your closet with awesome free gifts. Like Nyah Star! 🙂

Great Day to Mermaid

Viki Mermaid Tail $25L Tues 8/02/21

It’s a wet & rainy week where I live in RL. It’s a perfect day to be a mermaid. Have you ever noticed that a mermaid’s hair is never frizzy? It has to be part of the magic; it’s not like that in the swampy land I hail from.

Tuesday Sale

Shopping and picking up freebies in SL makes me happy! One my favorite sales is $25LT ($25 Linden Tuesday). It’s a rare day when nothing offered makes my ears perk up (or would that be my eyelids?). Being a mermaid seems appealing.

Today, I found this incredible mermaid tail at Viki for $25L!  The Viki Marine Bento Tail is Bento and unisex so mermen can wear it too.

Sizes

  • Female – Maitreya, Freya, & Legacy
  • Male – Jake, Signature, & Legacy Athletic

Sunshine state of mind

Sunshine state of mind

Hey FabFree, I hope your week is starting off with bang or at least a good Monday. My was kinda exasperating… I broke my brand new computer screen. So now the right side of my screen looks like it’s trying to contact the Netherworld. But… I will not worry, things can be fixed and instead of freaking out… I’m heading to the beach!  Besides, I have a brand new super sexy bikini to show off!

This is “Summer Body” from DM Designs and you can add it to your collection for free as part of the Summer Nights Hunt.  It’s so nice to find a completely free Hunt now days, isn’t it? And when you’re getting really amazingly beautiful prizes it’s doubly nice! The build is perfect and the tiny details of the loose weave are really impressive. There’s nothing like a designer who really knows their stuff!  

Sizes Included

  • Legacy – Classic, Perky
  • Maitreya

The Summer Nights Hunt runs until August 14th so you’ve got lots of time to enjoy all the goodies you can hunt down.

Sunny Monday

Sunny Monday

Heyya FabFree! Today… I was a bit of a detective for y’all.  Stuff gets weird in SL, designers change names, store disappear or appear, people vanish…. I guess it’s all part of the Grid’s power but it can get unnerving when you’re trying to hunt down freebies and bargains. especially when you have a great gift in the inventory… and you don’t quite remember how you got it…..

Anyway, I was checking out the new Gacha Life event (where I grabbed these awesome new sunglasses for Free from the Ari Pari’ booth) when I decided to go wander through Grumble because they always have great Hunts and such. Sure enough, I was hunting and clicking in no time!  I was unpacking the prizes and realized… I have no information on the Peace By Peace Hunt and I’m blogging this awesome skirt Grumble made for it!! So I popped back over to Grumble to do some sleuthing. Luckily, I noticed another resident in the store hunting with the group name “Searching for Peace”. AH HA, sez I, I bet that’s them. And it is! To get the Peace by Peace Hunt info you can just join the free group and the Hunt list is in the Notices. Maybe not the easiest way… but it works.

The group is named “Searching for Peace” and the group key is – 5db92a9d-8188-08d0-45ba-4e2aa8c306fa

So, anyway… my gorgeous watercolors skirt is the “BoHo Dream” and you can grab it for just 1L and a little Hunting!

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya
  • Classic
  • Legacy
  • Legacy Perky
  • Maitreya
  • Maitreya Petite

While I was at Grumble ( Since I spent a lot of time there this afternoon) I also stumbled across a Hunt and event that’s new to me. The Fashion Loft is another SL hot spot for all things fashion on the Grid. They are hosting a Grid wide Hunt that runs until June 30th. All you have to do is pop over to their headquarters and grab the free HUD which will take you through the Hunt. So for my sunny Monday , it’s the “Damn Cute” bikini I’m sporting with my new skirt. Yes, it’s “Damn Cute”… says so on the box it comes in. You get the itsy bitsy bikini ( Top and Bottom) and a HUD for  10 super cute patterns.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique

Hey FabFree! Hang on to your Gacha Lindens cause you don’t want to miss this one! If you aren’t a Gacha fan… maybe this one will change your mind. While I don’t quite know what Vikings have to do with “Game of Thrones”, I found this awesome Viking Gacha at the “Ice and Fire Event” being held by Redeux.

This is the Karsi Gacha from Luas X BJK. It’s at the Luas booth.  The gacha is only 50L per play so you can quickly fill your closet and not break the bank. There are two Rares: the stunning antlered helmet I’m wearing and a gorgeous set of boots. Sadly, I wasn’t lucky enough to pull the boots. But happily I had a pair to match up easily enough. 

However, if you want to make this Ice and Fire Event exclusive yours you only have until the 31st to do it when the event ‘melts’ away.

Sizes Included

  • Maitreya
  • Legacy
