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!

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!

Chill at Home

At Home

Hey Fab Free! Let’s start this week off on a positive note and go through a few free, 1 L and deals you can grab on the grid right now! Today I’ll be showing you a free skirt and necklace, 1 L eyelash appliers, and some free poses. When you’re all done, take these home and enjoy some relaxation time!

This Gorgeous (and Free!) Skirt

First off, I wanted to let you all know about the gorgeous and cute Tia Skirt from Mooh! It is a current freebie for all. To get it simply walk over to the 50% off sales section at Mooh!, and left click the little skirt vendor next to the Haley top sale item. Left click the vendor and pay it 1 L and it will refund you back or click the menu and then “deliver”. It should send for free, no group needed to get this gorgeous skirt. It comes with a colour change HUD. I decided to buy the Haley top too which is the matching top to Tia, which is currently 50% off.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza (Freya, Isis & Venus)
  • Maitreya
  • Slink (Physique & Hourglass)
  • Tonic (Fine & Curvy)
  • Fitmesh ( XXS, XS, S, M, L)

The Necklace

The necklace I have on here is a free hunt prize from Lantian Flox on the Steam Hunt IV. Simply find the hint, look for the gear on the sim and it’s yours! It fits over the sweater I have on nicely! They have lovely jewelry at this store, so take a look around while you’re there.

Kate Pose Set

I have yet another freebie to share from the Pose Fair’s 10th Anniversary Round. I am using a pose from the Kate set from Indigo, and the poses are great for relaxed standing poses for photos. You can get it at the pose fair by joining their free group and heading over to Indigo’s vendor for the duration of the event.

Lashes!

Although you can’t see them really clearly here, I am wearing the 1 L “Delicate Eyelashes” applier from POUT!, which is a new dollarbie on their marketplace store. These are gorgeous and several styles of lashes are included! Get this one in your shopping cart- it’s a steal!

Appliers Included

  • Genus
  • Lelutka
  • Vista
  • Catwa

Stay home and be safe, Fab Free!

Blueberries and Cactus

Garden Projects

Hello hello Fab Free! I’ve got some goodies from Blueberry (including store credit!), some cute denim applier shorts by Nerdosaurus, and a Le Poppycock freebie by way of the Pose Fair to share with you today. As always, but especially now, I hope everyone is taking good care of themselves and doing well despite all the unpleasantness out in the world. That said, hopefully these free and inexpensive finds make you smile. You know how this works from here, keep reading for details, and peep full credits at the end.

P.S. I even put a few extras in the credits! Have fun Fab Free! 

Blueberry

It’s a good time to be part of the Blueberry in-world group if you’re not already. Caroline gave me the heads up that just a day or two ago they sent out a group gift via notices that is a complete Mega Pack. There’s also a 350 linden store credit available to group members also in a notice sent out today! You guys, that makes the 20 linden join fee worth it worth it worth it!!

The generous Mega Pack gift from Blueberry includes the puffer jacket, and dress with lots of options. Along with several sizes, the jacket and dress can be worn together or separately. If you want to wear both together, wear the jacket in your size and use the detailed customization hud to show the dress. From there you can pick from tons of color options for the dress, jacket, and metal parts. Additionally, there is an option to hide or show panties with a lace option for those as well as the color choices. Reminder, the Blueberry group has a one time join fee of 20 linden. Don’t forget to check the notices!

Sizes Included: Legacy, Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus)

Nerdosaurus 

I personally chose to wear the group gift dress from Blueberry as a shirt and put on a cute pair of denim shorts by Nerdosarus.  I found them for just 10 linden on the Marketplace. For that price especially, these shorts are a steal! The shorts come in 5 denim shades, each in an Omega applier as well as classic system layers.

Le Poppycock

The Pose Fair is a must-go-to shopping stop. There are so many free gifts I can’t even tell you how many, and there are poses for everyone. The Pose Fair group is also free to join, just wear the group tag and click the gift boxes to get your free gift. These cute little cacti are part of the Pose Fair gift by Le Poppycock. This gift includes the cacti and a single bento hold pose.

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.

All Sn@tched Up

All Sn@tched Up

Hello hello Fab Free’rs! I hope everyone is doing as well as can be expected if not better. Fishing in Second Life happens to be a great way to pass the time. Especially when you’re fishing for fashion rather than fish! There is a new “Fish4This” outfit at Sn@tch that you can fish for free, all you need is a fishing rod. I’ll tell you all about this fantastic and very versatile set at Sn@tch below, but first I’ll give a little fishing explanation for those who’ve never gone before.

How to go 7Seas Fishing

If this is your first time fishing, I suggest getting a “casual” fishing rod. You can purchase a casual rod at the 7Seas fishing kiosk near the Sn@tch entrance. There are other rod options, but I only use a casual rod. The casual rod will cost you a one time purchase price of 100 linden. Once you have your rod you can use it forever to fish at any participating 7Seas Fishing area. Now you’re ready to go fish for this outfit!

Sn@tch 

When I say this fishable free outfit at Sn@tch is versatile, what I really mean is it’s more like 2 outfits with lots of color choices. The “Done Dirt Cheap” set includes everything you need to complete the look even hair, shoes, and jewelry. As the ad says there are 23 pieces in total. The top, pants, and hair all come in multiple colors. The tattoo has an omega applier and a classic tattoo layer. For the top photo I’m wearing the top in purple, the slither tattoo, the pewter choker, and the skater skirt in black.

Sizes Included for Skirt/Pants/Top: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Volumptuous. Belleza (Isis, Freya Venus), Tonic (Curvy, Fine). Standard Mesh (xs – XL) + Alpha Layer

**P.S. The cute Reve Obscura pose I’m using with the book prop included is just 50 linden on the Marketplace!
