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


Get There Before Midnight

Graffitiwear MM Aug2022_001

Do I look ready for the weekend? I’m sure there are a lot of things to do around the grid the next two days. I’ll be cool as a cucumber in this jumpsuit for sure! I’m a bit under the weather today so this will be a quickie!

Score one for yourself

The secret to getting yourself a fatpack of this sweet jumpsuit is that you have to head over to Graffitiwear and slap the MM board on the 2nd floor. The board says “Group Only” but at least for now you don’t need the group. Having said that, joining the Graffitiwear group costs $25L. You’ll get monthly gifts, access to the lucky board and Unlucky Kraken Dip and some quality garb in the deal. All of the clothing textures are original & hand drawn. The Graffitiwear Painted Innocense Jumpsuit comes with a texture change hud giving you six options for the pantsuit. This is another of those easy breezy outfits that’s a must have for the semi-tropical wilds of SL!

Sizes

  • Belleza, Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Fitmesh M
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • SLink Physique & Hourglass
  • Tonic Curvy & Fine

Now get thee to that MM board!

Pride Never Stops

6-23-22 Pride things_002 edited

The end of June is nigh upon us. Pride never stops; it shouldn’t. It’s a choice you can make to support the LGBTQ+ community and remember the history of struggles to obtain basic human rights. My support comes naturally as I have long-time friends and family who are LGBTQ+. You’ve probably seen several posts about Pride @ Home and other events.

To help you show support there are a number of Fabulous designers who donated gifts for the Pride @ Home SL celebration. All of the gifts are Free but you need to hurry because the event ends on June 30th. Madame Aline, the FabFree boss lady, featured some of the event gifts here.

Showing Those Rainbow Colors

Ladies, how can you NOT love these items? I do love sparkly things! And the bright colors make me smile. I threw this look together with several gift items. Do I look a tad too festive to anyone? No way, never ever! Let’s get to it.

My delightful bodysuit is a Free SL19B gift from PrettyDeceased. It’s the Pride edition and it is so pretty & festive! It’s got the little side skirt attached. It also comes with starfish to cover up the boobies.

I didn’t wear the starfish because I wanted to add the crown and breast plate I picked up a couple of weekends ago from Synnergy.  I think the pieces go together quite nicely.

Bodysuit Sizes

  • Kupra
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Reborn

I rounded out my outfit with a group gift from StephaneL – the kick butt Mara Love Pride Shoes. Mara is sized for Belleza, Maitreya, & SLink. The StephaneL group has a $15L join fee. There are many gifts for group members. There is also a $500L gift card up for group members. If you’re interested check it out this weekend because I don’t know how long the card will be available.

If you haven’t made it to SL19B Shop & Hop or Pride at Home yet it’s time to get going!

Hop to it now!

Let Your Fingers Do the Walking

Sl19B Son!a Edge Petra Dress (1)

Going through the SL19B sims reminds of me of an old commercial for the Yellow pages phonebook. In the early 1960s an artist came up with the now famous slogan – “Let your fingers do the walking through the Yellow Pages” for the New England Telephone which was eventually bought out by AT&T. (btw, it’s an American thing as far as I know).

Okay, where was I going with this bit of trivia?? Oh yeah! Walking through SL19B is like walking through the yellow pages. I don’t know how your avatar moves but mine moves with me using 2 fingers to “walk”. Quit blathering and get on with it Cre!

Lovely Sparkles

Don’t you love it when you pick up free gifts, open them and find a few treasures? I was pleasantly surprised when I unpacked the SL19B gift from Son!a Edge. What a beautiful, well-crafted dress! The details and textures knocked me out of my socks. Petra comes in this pleasing shade accented with shiny sequins and gorgeous flowers.

Sizes

  • Belleza Freya Perky & Isis Perky
  • Maitreya & Petite
  • Legacy & Perky

Peau Neuve (aka New Skin)

Thanks to the WoW non-group Lucky Boards I’m sporting a new skin. When a “C” popped up on one of the boards I slapped it and got 2 shades of the Sugar BOM skin. I’m wearing the bronze version today. When you arrive in the gifts room you’ll also find several free gifts as well as gifts for FabFree and various other groups. There are also non-group lucky, mini-mania, & midnight mania boards.

Have a most splendid week Fabbies!

The Queen in Her Kingdom

Coming soon

There’s only two days left of Fantasy Faire, and I poked around the various regions of the event to look for gifts. There are some out, but they are a bit tricky to find. One I found was this free animated golden flower, which I thought was gorgeous. The item is made by Gabriel, and it includes the hand pose and light orbs that float above it. You will find it for free near the landing of the Tenpayo region here. It all ends on May 18th, so go soon!

Queen Natalia

Coming soon

Now it’s time for the feature of my post today, which is this beautiful “Natalia” skin for Lelutka EvoX heads. This is a free gift from ItGirls. I am wearing the skin in “Rose”, but it comes in a fatpack of other dark and light natural shades. Each shade also includes the lovely dark eyebrows.

For this particular EvoX skin, you will need to own a Lelutka Evolution head. All previous Lelutka Evolution heads have been updated to EvoX, so be sure to click the update button in your head folder if you haven’t had the time or interest in updating yet. EvoX is a bit of a learning curve, but I recommend it because the skins are fabulous! Once you have your EvoX head, just click the “EvoX” button on the HUD to put your head in EvoX mode, which allows you to use more detailed skin and makeup options.

Once this is all done, you will notice that with the free skin from ItGirls, that the ears and face skins are separated. You need to wear a separate tattoo for the ears. So you then need to find the matching ear skin to go with the face skin. All of the face skins and ear skins are included in the free gift from ItGirls. You can also get a pack of free EvoX ear skins, which is available for all to get on the front desk at ItGirls.

Sizes Included (ItGirls skin & ear skins)

  • Lelutka EvoX

What about that sneaky neckline?

I’m sure some of you have noticed that nasty neckline that can pop up when you wear an EvoX head skin that doesn’t include a body skin. Not to fear, for Velour is here. Velour has a package of free ear skins and neck fixes for EvoX heads. To get the package, look on the front desk to get the pack for free. No group join is needed. The neck fixes work perfectly to blend the ItGirls skin with another body skin. I am currently wearing a body skin from a different creator entirely, one of 7 Deadly S[K]ins‘ BOM skins in the Caramel tone, and it blends so smoothly! These neck fixes should work with any companies that use Velour tones in their head skins and you should have few problems wearing the head skins with a different body skin.

Sizes Included (Velour neck fixes and ear skins)

  • Lelutka EvoX

Well, that wasn’t complicated at all! 😉 If you have any questions about EvoX skins feel free to post your queries in the comments.

Paint It Black

Paint It Black
One of my favorite quirks of Second Life is that when an event has a birthday, it gives us gifts! The current first anniversary round of 60 Special Go is no exception. Besides the fact that everything is 60L (a bonus in and of itself) lots of the booths have 6L or free gifts out to celebrate. There is no group join needed, you’ve just gotta tp in and start clicking.

I grabbed this free pose at the M&T booth. It’s called “kiss the rain” and it’s just so fun and dramatic. I also couldn’t resist this fab 6L dress from *AS*. Doroty is a great little mini featuring a loose skirt, harness, a HUD that lets you choose from a few color options, and sizes for:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

60 Special Go is opened through the end of March, with the last day being March 31st. I hope that you have time to hop over and snatch up the freebies and great deals before they’re gone!

Sending a Big Hug & Kiss!

Shanti Hugs & Kisses Hunt

I’ve seen it rainin’ fire in the sky
The shadow from the starlight is softer than a lullabye

-Rocky Mountain High, John Denver

Hihi Faboo Peeps!

There are so many fun hunts and events going on right now on the grid, a girl (or a guy!) barely knows where to turn!  That’s when you turn to good old reliable Fab Free.  We work as a kick arse team scoping out the freebies and dealios to make it easier for y’all!

But I digress.

One of the hunts happening right now is at Shanti.  You search for 10 items, 2L each, and all exclusive to this hunt.  Items are both inside the store and out in the mall.  You are looking for a mesh XO (hugs and kisses symbol).  I am wearing one of the items you can find in the hunt, I absolutely love the bohemian style of these dresses.  This outfit fits:

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

The hunt runs until the 21st, so you have plenty of time to find everything.  There is also a key for the hunt posted in the store.

Hey Fabbity Fabs!

Been going through more of my goodies from Shop & Hop and did a bit of mixin’ and matchin’ for y’all!  It’s always so much fun when Shop & Hop comes to town, though our inventories need to be burped after, from being so overstuffed after!  Nonetheless, I have a bunch of freebies so that all our inventories can burp in unison and the entire grid will need to be restarted (I hope not!)!

An Unexpected Surprise – Unisex Goodies!

Aren’t my roses and box of candy just adorable?  They are part of a pose set from PosED which is a free gift at Shop & Hop (called Unexpected Surprise!  Did ya see that one coming?).   It is unisex, so the guys can get in on the fun too (hey, they deserve roses and candy too those men of ours!).  My cute necklace is also part of a free unisex giftie from FashionNatic, they call it a broken hearts necklace but since you can wear one half, and you other half wears, well, the other half… I see it more as a connected heart.  They match up together and can be customized with any initials you like.  They fit Legacy, Maitreya and Kupra for women and Gianni, Jake and Legacy for the guys.

My cute top is a free gift from QE and fits:

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

It also comes with a 3 color HUD.

Last but not least, these cute pants are from Ghee and are also a free Shop & Hop gift.  They fit:

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

Be-Boppin’ & Shoppin’!

sdval_001

Hey Gang!

It’s that time of year once again, when there are hearts and cupids all around and the world is blissfully pink (ok and red, black, white, purple…)!  Now, Valentine’s Day has not notoriously been my best holiday (I got dumped once, when I was 20, on Valentines Day.) but nowadays, the abundance of so many things pink makes me like it so much more!

It’s also the time of the year for another Shop & Hop.  Squee!  I actually got a late start with it and haven’t gone through everything yet, but I’ve got a couple of things for you to whet your appetite a bit.

As they say on Big Brother…. “But first”, I have a little something for you from Astralia.  If you are one of their Very Important Unicorns, this super cute boba tea bear is the new free group gift.  You have a choice of several sayings, the one I chose made me giggle so it was a keeper.  The Astralia group is 149L to join.  This came in very handy while I was running around Shop & Hop at top speed.  I got very thirsty!

Here is a close up of it for you:

Now on to Shop & Hop

I wanted to put together a cute Valentine-y post and what better place to scoop up a poop load of goodies than Shop & Hop?!  This cute backdrop was a free gift from M-BdP.  It comes with some cute poses built in including a “Will you marry me?” pose!

These smexy shoes and stockings are the free gift from Aurora and fit:

  • Kupra
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Signature Alice

There is no group required to scoop up the freebies at Shop & Hop, but leave yourself plenty of time because it will take you a good while to peruse the entire mall.

Happy Shopping & Hopping kiddos!

I Want Candy

Candy Girl

Hey gang!

It’s the last week of Cozyfest so I wanted to sneak in two more of my amazing 50L finds.  I’ve been hermiting the last day or two watching a blizzard dump snow on my rl home.  We have a good foot and a half, and its a whopping 15 degrees and still pretty windy at about 19 mph (wind chill of 3 degrees) as I write this, so I’ve just had some of the chocolate chip cookies I baked today and some hot chocolate with rum to warm up a bit.

My second life self has been enjoying some of the same, some chocolate bars and donuts on a stick for her (made me wonder how you keep the donut from falling off the stick once you have eaten a decent amount of it.  I would think it would take a tumble right off.)  Either way I’m just a gal with a sweet tooth, and I do love those candy bright colors too.  So let’s get to the goodies I found for you, neither of which have anything to do with bright colors or candy!  Huh.  Go figure!

Let’s talk about these amazing boots.  These boots are from Friday at Cozyfest, they are of course 50L and you have the option to wear them without the lights but I got them *for* the lights cause if I could just drape myself in glitter and fairylights, well.  That might be downright blissful.  They fit:

  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

Now the build I am standing in is by Lemme, also 50L at Cozyfest.  This cute pink cabin comes in a lighter pink or a darker pink and is just super cozy and cute.  It was pink, so how could I say no?  Like Aline, I have a bit of a fetish for houses and buildings, a girl can just never have enough!  Add pink in that mix and well, you’ve got me doing some heavy breathing!  I chose the lighter pink one, the shade just appealed to me more, but I absolutely adore it!

Now, back to my yummy warm drink and perhaps a nibble more of the cookies!  Hope y’all are staying toasty too!
