Among The Fields Of Gold

Among The Fields Of GoldBy now you’ve heard about the passing of Palomma Casanova, maybe from Aline’s post here. I did not know her personally or ever speak to her, to my recollection. I can’t claim any personal grief or loss. But that isn’t to say that I’m not affected because really all of SL is affected. The Free Dove was an institution in Second Life for over 18 years. It was always around as a place to send new players or even veterans that needed to spruce up their avatars for free. In that way, The Free Dove and FabFree had the same mission. It was strange shopping at The Free Dove for this post, knowing that it’s creator is no longer with us and that it might be the last time I’m there before the doors close for good.

I picked up a few items and went to a pretty sim of sunflowers that I found on Palomma’s profile picks, that it appears she owned as well. The free items that I’m wearing from The Free Dove are:

  • Free sweater dress by Satus Inc in sizes for Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), Maitreya, Slink (Hourglass and Physique), TMP, and fitmesh sizes XS-XL
  • Free hair by Faga with a style HUD including all the colors
  • Free boots by Shoe-Ddiction sized for Freya, Hourglass, Isis, Maitreya, Physique, and Venus

To get these pieces for yourself you just need to be in The Free Dove group (it’s free to join). Then head over to The Free Dove to get the things that I’m wearing and so much more, all for free. There’s no word on how long the sim will remain so you’ll want to make the trip sooner rather than later.

Thank you Palomma, for your amazing contribution to the SL community. I have a feeling that The Free Dove and you will be remember and talked about long after the sim disappears.

When You Walk My Way

When You Walk My WayHi there. Just popping in to show you this cute free outfit that I found at Look At Me. The fun high waisted skirt and cropped sweater can be worn separately and would be so easy to mix into other outfits.  There is a HUD for other color options included, and most of the others are rather Christmas-y. However, I thought this blue pattern was just perfect for running some late winter errands, provided you don’t need to be outside for too long.

Sizes:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Kupra
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Petite
  • Reborn

I guess I’d better get to the best part. The group at Look At Me is free to join and the gift is free as well. There are also a few other free gifts available, plus some lucky boards. I was having a good lucky board day, I won twice while I was there! Hopefully you have the same luck.

Today I Don’t Feel Like Doing Anything

Today I Don't Feel Like Doing AnythingOh you know, just hanging around. Looking cute. Normal old Sunday. Not doing anything…except collecting freebie and sale items, of course!

For Free

I don’t spend enough time collecting FabFree group gifts. I really should be better about that. The FabFree group is always free and the gifts are free, what’s not to love? You can see the complete FabFree group gift list here. For right now, I’m wearing the new free gift that Paper.Sparrow put out. It’s this sexily cute corset top in red. All you’ve gotta do is wear your FabFree tag and go to Paper.Sparrow to pick one up for yourself.

Sizes:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

On Sale

You know I love the weekend sales. I’ve managed to be rather restrained lately, but couldn’t resist this gorgeous hair from Stealthic. It’s only 60L per color pack for Happy Weekend and includes a style HUD. Perfection.

Must Have Been Love

Must Have Been LoveThere’s a new hunt at Belle Epoque! The New Year Hunt has us searching the Belle Epoque main store for 21 little “2023”s. They are really not that hard to find or well hidden – wonderful attributes for a hunt item, in my opinion. There is also no group join required, so you’ve just gotta buy each for 10L and the prizes are yours. I’m wearing prize 13, which is flowy and pretty and everything that I love about Belle Epoque.

Sizes:

  • Ebody
  • Ebody Juicy
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Perky
  • Petite

You can grab a hunt key in the store entryway to see all of the prizes. The hunt just started and it will go until January 31st.

Believe In Magic

Believe In MagicMerry Christmas Eve! It’s a magical night which means I’ve got some magical things to do. But first, here’s a quickie that’s hopefully a win win – you get some more freebs and I buy some time to make sure the house is all the way asleep. Let’s get right to it!

Romping

Who doesn’t love a good romper? Nobody, that’s who. And when that romper is also both sexy and free…well that’s just irresistible. I picked up the one that I’m wearing here at Killjoy. You’ll find it for free right by the front desk when you enter the store and no group join is required. It comes in the a handful of plaid colors and with sizes for:

  • Juicy
  • Kupra
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Mounds
  • Perky
  • Reborn

Nailed It

I came across Lueur when I was making the rounds picking up all of the Lelutka goodies. I do love discovering new-to-me shops, and while this event is tricky because they are all overrun with people (and with good reason) I definitely noted some stores to come back and explore later. Anyway, Lueur has a couple of Christmas trees and underneath of them are 10 free mystery gifts. You’ll just need join the free group and then the gifts are all free. I won’t ruin the mystery, but one of them was these fun brown nails that I’m wearing. I’ll let you discover the rest for yourself. Sizes:

  • Belleza
  • Ebody
  • Ebody Reborn
  • Kupra
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

Alright, I guess that will do it for me. Let the magic commence. I hope that your evening and day tomorrow (or whenever/whatever you celebrate) are merry and bright!

Then I Saw Her Face

Then I Saw Her FaceOh FabFree! The Christmas giving just keeps on going. Today Akeruka announced their Christmas gift to the group members and it is, wait for it…two gorgeous new ADVX heads with all new features! These are fantastic heads with tons of options and motion captured animations. There is one for the girls and one for the guys. I’m wearing the girls one right out of the box and with the included shape. Here’s the picture the creator put out so you can see the guy one too:

Akeruka Christmas GIFT

He’s a cutie, right!?

The AK group is 150L to join and the heads are out for 1L each until December 31st. After that they will be full price. Merry Christmas to us!

Kiss Me Under The Mistletoe

Kiss Me Under The MistletoeHopefully you’ve heard about the fantastic-ness that is the free group gift extravaganza by Lelutka and friends. The heads are an unbelievably generous free gift, but I’d be remiss if I let that over shine all of the other amazing things that are also being given away for free as part of the event. You can read all about what’s going on here, and I’ve also found this page over on seraphim to be super helpful because it shows pictures of everything that’s on offer.

So Much More

An easily overlooked perk of all of these group gifts by all of these amazing creators, is that all of their groups are free to join till it ends on December 30th, even the ones that normally have a cost to join. There are so many normally paid groups that are free right now! It’s the perfect opportunity to jump into these groups while the jumping’s good.

But I digress. The first thing I did, besides grabbing the heads, was tp hastily to Deetalez.   Deetalez makes the most gorgeous skins and they were my go to for a long time, but y’all know I can’t stick to just one skin. Still they are completely lovely and a free skin by Deetalez is not something to miss. Snow has the prettiest rosy cheeks and nose and perfect lips, like I’ve just come in from the cold. It comes in three shades with various options.

Another Group!

Unrelatedly, Lilleth Mills has their group set to free temporarily. There will be a cost to join after December 31st. There are some sweet and sexy free past group gifts up on the wall, and the most recent free group gift is my outfit. The sweater and skirt is all one easy to wear piece. There is also a HUD that allows you to change the skirt and the sweater independently of each other to a handful of festive colors. Included are these sizes:

  • GenX Classic
  • GenX Curvy
  • Kupra
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Reborn

Lost In This Moment

Lost In This MomentGood evening, FabFree! I am definitely not trying to turn this into an episode of “Who Wore It Best? Backdrop Edition.” I know that’s a game I would lose. No, when I saw Aline’s post I had already taken and edited my picture and was too lazy to redo it. But we’re not here for the background, pretty though it may be. I have some amazing free group gifts to show you!

Minimalistic

Palette has a gorgeous new group gift out that I am just obsessed with. How perfect is this gown? Slinky and sexy and classy, with the most amazing texturing. The Palette group is 300L to join and puts out gifts pretty regularly, with an array of past gifts available if you’re just joining. This gown alone is worth the price, it’s honestly so lovely. There is a HUD with 6 colors to choose from and sizes for:

  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Reborn

Luxurious

And then there are my luxurious locks. I bought them with a free gift card from a free to join group. Got your attention? Here’s the deets. You probably know of Ayashi and Limerence, two hair stores that share a sim. Right now, there is a new free group gift in each of the two free groups – a 500L gift card each. That’s 1000L of free hair! Each store has a free group and a paid group and for the free gift cards all you need is the free groups. The gift card giver is located inside each of the respective stories, and hopefully my slurls will take you where you need to go. It’s not upstairs in the group gift area, but downstairs a room away from the entrance.

I found that Ayashi gives 50% off for group members, even for the free group, and so I was getting hairpacks there for only 145L – that’s three free hairs with the gift card! The one I’m wearing here though is from Limerence and quite fetching, don’t you think? It was also completely free with my gift card.

The cards are available until Jan 3rd. Plenty of time for a hair shopping spree!

Give Me The Shivers

Give Me The ShiversCollectively, I’d say that us FabFree girls have a lot of really great qualities. One place where we really struggle though? Bundling up and dressing for the weather. And here is a prime example. Really I think that my facial expression says it all. The things that we do in the name of freebies!

Oh Christmas Tree

There is an Advent Calendar at Cosmopolitan, in the form of a lovely Christmas tree just inside the entrance. It claims to be an advent calendar, but when I was there the day after it started it was already loaded with free presents. It runs from December 15th through 25th so I’ll definitely be checking back to see what else is added each day. To get the free gifts you need to join the free Cosmopolitan group and then click on the ornaments on the tree to get the gifts. They are from all different designers and range from clothes to accessories to decor. Here’s some of what I snagged on my visit:

  • Free mittens by amias with three colors to choose from and in sizes for Legacy and Maitreya
  • Free hair by no.match, including the scarf – there’s a HUD of “essential” hair colors plus two more HUDS of colors for the scrunchy and scarf
  • Free top by FLIRT, also in a fatpack of colors and sizes for Cinnamon, Kupra, Kupra Kups, Legacy, Maitreya, Perky, and Reborn
  • Free lipstick applier by Lempika, featuring 15 nice colors

The Cosmopolitan Event runs till December 25th and you’ll be able to get the free gifts the whole time, they don’t go away like most advent calendars once the day is done. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to see if a nice jacket or coat has been added.
