Dapper Bunny

Dapper Bunny

Welcome back Fab Free’rs! I hope this day finds you well. I don’t know about you, but I needed to get out of the house, even if it was just in virtual reality. If you’re looking for a way to spend a bit of time, there are several hunts happening around the grid right now.

The Hopping Along Hunt is a dollarbie hunt with 22 total stops, not too long, but still plenty to keep you busy.  The hunt runs from now until the end of April and the prizes appear to be women’s clothing, including shoes and accessories, as well as Easter themed décor. I hunted my dapper bunny tank top at The Bold Llama, and my cute green purse at Loordes of London.

Shirt Sizes Included: Ocacin, Belleza Frey, Belleza Isis, Belleza Venus, Belleza Freya, Matireya Lara, TMP, Tonic Curvy, Tonic Fine, Ebody, Classic Mesh, Alpha Layer, Slink Hourglass, Slink Physique

Hints:

The Bold Llama – “Go left, look up, and remember no one puts Baby in a corner except llamas.” 

Loordes of London – “Look near the hunt poster.”

A Free, Full Bento Mesh Head from Genus Project!

Free Genus Strong Head

Hey Fab Free! I have the most exciting news to share with all of you! Genus Project is giving away a completely free Genus head! The head is a full bento, BOM head which is also compatible with Genus appliers and Omega appliers. I will be showing you how to get the head, some basics on how to get started and some free skins, makeup and eyes you can pair with the head successfully. For those of you who need a mesh head for the first time or wanted a Genus head, now is the time to jump at the opportunity!

How to get the Head

When I opened my SL notices this morning I was truly stunned and amazed that Genus Project has released a new free head as a gift. I ran to my computer and grabbed the head as soon as I could! It was super exciting and it made me happy. The head is a strand of Genus’ Strong Head type, so it is more mature looking.

Here are some easy steps on how to grab the head:

  1.  Join the Genus Project Free Group. Copy and paste this join group URI into your SL chat or nearby chat: secondlife:///app/group/b153906f-38dd-0dd6-d327-345bef9f446e/about
  2. Open up the Notices in the Group info tab
  3.  Scroll down to the notice called “Support from the Genus Project Team” and accept the attached object. The object is called “GENUS Project – Genus Head – Strong Face GIFT001 – Mocap”

You can also grab the head at the mainstore, although it will be packed and hard to get in. You can grab a free BOM activator HUD and some free skins at the store as well.

Skin Hunt at Insol

There is a Stay at Home/ Quarantine themed hunt going on at Insol right now, and they have some 1L Genus head appliers as some of the hunt prizes. I am wearing the Mila skin in the Milk skintone, one of the hunt prizes, and I also grabbed the free Insol body appliers while I was there. These hunt gifts will allow you to use appliers so you won’t even need to try BOM yet if you aren’t ready to. Each skin on the hunt is 1 L only, and the body appliers are free. The body appliers aren’t hunt items; just click the free body appliers near the entrance of the store.

Need some makeup for your new head?

I also added some Genus makeup onto the Strong head. I selected some basic ones that are good to start out with on the Marketplace. This everyday lip balm pack from Ottilie is currently on promotion for 1L, which includes genus appliers, BOM and other head appliers. I also found an  eyeshadow from Pout! which is available as a gift in their marketplace store called Vibez Eyshadow which is 1 L only as well.  These shadows come in some basic colours to start you out. To top it off, I purchased a pair of eyes from Myria for 1 L which contain Genus applier eyes in blue, green and brown.

Now we’re all set! I used my own custom shape, but there are also shapes for the head available for free at Jinx/Kumio’s mainstore and on the marketplace.

Have fun playing with your new free Genus head, Fab Free!

Boho Steals

Boho

Hey Fab Free! How you all doing? Keeping inside has gotten me in a more creative mood and I decided to express myself with a few free gifts, dollarbies and 45 L finds! Together, these create a really cute artsy or boho look. Watch out my friends- this post is a long one but this whole look is made up of deals all under our Fab Free 75L limit!

Ari Pari- Scala Tin/Yang Event

The Dress and Anklet I have on is from Ari-Pari. They have a little sale going on at their store which is connected to the Scala Yin/Yang Event.  I got this dress for only 45L, and the anklet is free (a Yin/Yang gift), which you can wear on both feet. Both items have a colour hud which match each other. These items will be available through the weekend. I love this outfit! There are also a bunch of free gifts and cheap hunts going on at Ari-Pari, so check those out while you visit the store!

This Little Side Bag

I picked up this straw shoulder bag from S@bbia as a free group gift. It’s really well made and it’s super cute! It goes perfect with this boho look.

Anyone Love Gustav Klimt?

One of my favourite artists is Gustav Klimt, a 20th-century modernist. Naturally, I loved this necklace from Luminesse! I grabbed the Gustave pendant at the Wash, which only costs 3L. They have a bunch of other 3-10 L steals in their booth as well as free gifts! The Wash Event is open until April 15th, so you still have time to grab all the cheap deals and gifts!

Mila Free Genus Applier!

I know some of you likely saw this skin offer on Fab Finds recently, but I am currently wearing the free head applier from Neomenia in case you were wondering! It is a head applier called Mila for Genus heads. Simply join their free group to grab this lovely gift. To match the head to your body, you will need to purchase body appliers from Pume C, or grab the body appliers as a group gifts if you are already in their group (PumeC has a 399 L join fee).

The “Shaza” Updo

I know you all love free hair, and this hair I have on is a current group gift from EscalateD. I love the detail of the braids at the back of Shaza. It has a huge colour hud and you can change the hair to natural or unnatural tones, and even split the hair colour down the middle and add highlights. The EscalteD group costs 99L to join. As a VIP member you get a bunch of benefits including group gifts, lucky boards, weekly raffles and a 15% discount from the store. They have a crazy number of gift hairs you can get by being part of their VIP group (plus an advent calendar at Christmas every year).

Witchy Heels

Finally, these “witch queen” heels fatpack are from KC Couture which you can get as a Lucky Board prize. To access their LBs, you will be need to be a member of their group which costs 25L to join.

Coming soon to Fab Free!

Thanks for reading, Fab Free!

Enchanted Easter

Enchanted Easter

Hello Fab Free, thanks for being here. My guy Blue and I were talking the other day and he started telling me about a dollarbie hunt a Simply Shelby that had lots of purple, unicorns, crystals, and fanciful things. I didin’t need to hear anything else. Are you kidding me? Unicorns, crystals, and lots of purple? I was in!

There are 12 pink, blue, or yellow Easter eggs hidden around the grounds at Simply Shelby for the Starry Skies Easter Egg Hunt. This hunt will last from now until April 14th.  All the prize eggs are priced at just 1 linden each. In each egg there is a landscaping or décor item that is either Easter or fantasy themed, and most of them include the color purple. With the exception of the flowery grass filling in, everything in the above scene is a dollarbie hunt prize.

Lastly, there are 2 additional shops with their own prizes as part of the Starry Skies Easter Egg Hunt. I’ve included the ad for this hunt below to give you a preview. If you click on the hunt sign at any participating location, you should get a notecard with some hunt information and the landmarks to all 3 participating locations.

Happy Hunting Fab Free!

Redecorate, Rejuvenate

Redecorate, Rejuvenate

Spring really is here, I suppose, though we’ve all been a bit busy with all the world’s goings-on to notice it.  It’s the perfect time to redecorate, start a new project, and even try out a new look.  You all know it’s much easier to do it in SL, and I’ve found the perfect little details to get you started on your Spring reawakening!

Dress Up

Of course you can’t do any effective redecorating if you’re not dressed to the nines.  That’s how it works, right? Luckily, Rosary have put out a new group gift for their members.  This form-fitting mini dress hits all the right “I’m about to redecorate like mad” notes.  Or you know, something that actually makes sense.  It comes in 8 gorgeous hues and to get it all you have to do is join their group for 350L and click on the vendor.  There are two other gifts out right now, and they’re quite generous with their monthly gifts, so it’s well worth the join fee.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Legacy

Time to Decorate

Now that you’re suitably attired for some SL decorating, Hive have got just the goodies for you to give your space a bit of a lift.  They’ve posted 6 items priced at just 1L each in their marketplace store and they’re all giving off elegant farm vibes.  I love it.  I’ve added the ad below so you can see just what’s on offer.  Cool right?  Thank you Hive!

A Little bit “Batty”

A Little Bit Batty

Happy Thursday, Fab Free! I am looking a bit batty or like the local weirdo librarian with this strange look I’ve put together. The world is going mad so my look is matching that, I guess! Let’s have fun with it and dig into the free stuff and dollarbies you can get right now; after all, we all need something fun to do with this time off!

The Dress

This dress is ” The Power of Love” gift from Entice. It is their newest group gift which came out only a few weeks ago, and it’s a fatpack which allows you to change the colours of the dress, belt and trim. It reminds me of fashion styles from the early 20th-century. It would be lovely for a formal occasion or just for putting together a unique look like I have done here. The Entice group is free to join and you can get the dress completely free at their main store with their group tag activated.

Dollarbies from S.Lima!

Some of the other almost-free items I have added to this outfit include the hair and glasses dollarbies from S.Lima. The hair is especially a great offer, as it is a full fatpack. The creator was initially going to sell this hair but decided to gift it to all of us for 1 L! How generous! So if you need a pigtails hairstyle, this is a great new dollarbie!

I really love these round glasses with bats/demon wings on them as well. They are so different and really pretty too! You can buy these on S.Lima’s marketplace store for 1 L.

Some Free Jewelery to Top it Off

Pure Poison has a whole lot of free jewelry group gifts at the back if their store in their gacha room. To get these, join their free group and grab all the gifts in the bags. I am currently wearing the Aileen necklace from this loot.

A Discounted Bento Head at the Skin Fair

Although this certainly isn’t free, I thought I would make a short note about the head I have on here as it is currently on a highly discounted price at the Skinfair. LOGO‘s “Josie Bento Head” is on sale for 999 Linden and that includes the head and all of LOGO‘s customization and animation huds which you can use with all of their other heads and future releases. These head bundles are normally priced at 3,499, so it’s a great deal. LOGO does put heads on sale occasionally so having these huds may even be useful in the future! You can pick up Josie at the skin fair until March 29th.

Don’t go into the woods alone!

Crystal Lake Reunion

With the impending Friday the 13th fast approaching, I decided to dare myself to spend the night at the famous Crystal Lake Woods. With the strange sounds and fog rolling in early this morning I drank my coffee by the fire. Lucky for me that I left before any wild animals chomped on me, otherwise my amazing personal achievements for being a blogger for FabFree would be ruined alongside my amazing shoes!

Always be prepared!

Thankfully my amazing cargo pants from [SYS] have side pockets which I easily packed a pocket knife for my safety. I was able to snag the brown pair as a gift for L$1 on the marketplace. The color compliments the top (also [SYS]) in tartan and fit perfectly together as a nice set for camping. I was perfectly safe the entire time, I promise, but being exposed out in the woods without any city lights or passersby I felt like I was in a scary movie! So this Friday the 13th make some popcorn, snuggle on the couch and watch a nice horror film with your bestie or lover.
